“This battle has nothing whatsoever to do with qualifications or worthiness. It is tribal, and the tribes who support Obama are united and powerful. The rest of us will either learn the same lesson that the enemies of America have, and become tribal ourselves, and powerful enough to defeat them, or they will surely destroy us and this country.” —WingMann
Remember all those lawsuits by Democrats demanding that any voter identification laws be repealed. Well, now we know why they filed them. They needed to steal the vote in certain key states so that Obama could be reelected.
If you think the threat ended with the inevitable collapse of the Soviet Union, you haven’t read the communist goals entered into the Congressional Record in 1963. We may not be waging a cold war against communists, but they are sure waging one against us — and they are winning:
The final conflict between liberty and collectivism won’t be fought with tanks or ICBMs. It will be fought by insidious slime using television to brainwash fools into voting for their own demise.
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
As Antonio Gramsci figured out, authoritarian collectivists could never defeat America on the battlefield. So they infiltrated the media and the schools and defeated us from within. The alphabet networks did more than anyone to rot our culture to the point of Barack Hussein Obama not being laughed off the ballot. Don’t forgive them. (Moonbattery)
“All Muslims are charged with applying the teachings of Islam to remove such idols, as we did in Afghanistan when we destroyed the Buddha statues.”
“‘Destroy the idols,’ Egyptian jihadist calls for removal of Sphinx, Pyramids,” from Al Arabiya, November 12 (thanks to JW via Voice of the Copts):
An Egyptian jihad leader, with self-professed links to the Taliban, called for the “destruction of the Sphinx and the Giza Pyramids in Egypt,” drawing ties between the Egyptian relics and Buddha statues, local media reported this week.
The rise follows then prime minister Kevin Rudd’s unveiling in 2008 of a $6 billion plan to halve homelessness by 2020 and offer crisis accommodation to every person sleeping rough. Mr Rudd had promised in his first month in the job to make the issue a priority.–Homeless promise (Bolt)

I would disagree with Rabbi Pruzansky on that America is or was an empire; it never was.
America is an idea, an idea that attracted millions of people from around the world over centuries, to make a new life in freedom, to follow their dreams, in the pursuit of happiness.
Poster Laura nails it:
Most of us remember Jim Jones and the Kool-Aid trip to Guyana. I think 53 million so called Americans drank the Obama Kool-Aid. We are an entitlement country now and it won’t be long before we’re out of money to support those who feel entitled to suck off society.
The most charitable way of explaining the election results of 2012 is that Americans voted for the status quo – for the incumbent President and for a divided Congress. They must enjoy gridlock, partisanship, incompetence, economic stagnation and avoidance of responsibility. And fewer people voted. As I write, with almost all the votes counted, President Obama has won fewer votes than John McCain won in 2008, and more than ten million off his own 2008 total.
But as we awake from the nightmare, it is important to eschew the facile explanations for the Romney defeat that will prevail among the chattering classes. Romney did not lose because of the effects of Hurricane Sandy that devastated this area, nor did he lose because he ran a poor campaign, nor did he lose because the Republicans could have chosen better candidates, nor did he lose because Obama benefited from a slight uptick in the economy due to the business cycle.
Islamist terrorists have long used women as suicide bombers, but now their combatant role has expanded with al-Qaeda’s formation of an all-female jihadist fighting unit whose primary mission is purportedly to attack Coalition targets in Afghanistan.
The discovery of the all-girl military group, dubbed the “Burkha Brigade,” came to light in a recent online video that showed a bevy of fully covered women firing off a wide selection of heavy weaponry, including machine guns, assault rifles, and rocket-propelled grenades.
But remember: “Islamophobia” is the problem. Not the holy book that designates the Jews as the worst enemies of the Muslims (Qur’an 5:82). “Brother says parents’ anti-Semitism, hate helped radicalize French gunman who killed 7,” from the Associated Press, November 11 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):
PARIS – The radicalization of the French gunman who killed seven people on an eight-day shooting spree this spring began at home, his brother recounts in a new book and documentary, according to media reports.
LIBYA: THE TRUTH? Bureaucratic Nightmare: Pentagon Benghazi Timeline Contradicts CIA
“When they asked for air support, they were told they could have an unarmed drone.”–Read More »
That is the heart of the matter. Who cares if Petreaus had a mistress or two? Who gave the order to stand down? Why was the Libyan Ambassador left to die along with those who came to help?
This is an effort to distract us from the cover up of Benghazi Gate. If the Obama regime can cloud the picture with a sexual scandal, it can effectively smokescreen the real problem. This is obfuscation at its best. The Chicago gang are masters of this game.
As always, the MSM runs with the narrative; all of them swallowed the bait. The Obama machine is spinning like Iranian centrifuges, and now even Obama-critial blogs have jumped on the bandwagon:
Cultural Enrichment, nothing to do with the religion of peace. Islam elevates women, remember that, infidel!
Achtung Serial Killer!
The nice man in the photo is Omid Ramadani (45). Omid is Iraqi with a Dutch passport and highly dangerous.
Omid Ramadani is wanted with a European Arrest Warrant. In Berlin-Schöneberg, he cut off both breasts of his girlfriend. (PI reported.) The police believe that this criminal monster is looking for contacts with women on the internet. The Iraqi immigrant is especially interested in exiled Iranian women, and he wants to mutilate them. Omid is a serial killer, who has already been convicted in the Netherlands. If you know this man or if you have seen him please call in at 2nd Homicide Berlin-Tiergarten, telephone +49 (0) 30 4664 911 201, Fax: +49 (0) 30 4664 911 299, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

No, we can’t tell Muslim women what to wear. That would be ‘racist’, or something……
More bitter fruit of the culture of violence created by a religion that calls for the beating of disobedient women (Qur’an 4:34) and stipulates no penalty for a parent who kills a child. “Italy: Muslim Father Kills Children After His Wife Refuses To Wear Islamic Veil And Threatens To Leave,” from Midnight Watcher, November 9 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur)
Stoning is not “extremist”; it is Islamic law for adulterous women. The caliph Umar, one of Muhammad’s closest companions, even maintained that it was originally in the Qur’an:
‘Umar said, “I am afraid that after a long time has passed, people may say, “We do not find the Verses of the Rajam (stoning to death) in the Holy Book,” and consequently they may go astray by leaving an obligation that Allah has revealed. Lo! I confirm that the penalty of Rajam be inflicted on him who commits illegal sexual intercourse, if he is already married and the crime is proved by witnesses or pregnancy or confession.” Sufyan added, “I have memorized this narration in this way.” ‘Umar added, “Surely Allah’s Apostle carried out the penalty of Rajam, and so did we after him.” (Bukhari, vol. 8, bk. 82, no. 816)
“Allah’s Apostle” is, of course, Muhammad, who did indeed carry out stonings. Here is the hadith in which he challenges the rabbis about stoning, and in which there is amidst the barbarism and brutality a final act of love and compassion:
