1.) Progressive Ideology ‘Dehumanizes The Population’
Anthony Daniels, who uses the pen name, Theodore Dalrymple, says the West is “too weak-willed,” “accepts obvious untruths” and “treats people as objects.” In a 28-minute video interview with The Daily Caller, he says “the intellectual dishonesty of the West is the greatest threat – we can’t say what we really think.”
Dalrymple, based on his work in British prisons, is a critic of “determinism” — the dominant progressive theory that minimizes personal responsibility and portrays people as forced, by their circumstances, to behave as they do. This theory, Dalrymple says, “dehumanizes the population.”
Asked why westerners join ISIS, he says he has been astounded by the “large number of people who enjoy cruelty,” but that he pins the reason on an idealistic “search for meaning and significance in a world [these recruits] don’t feel there is much meaning or significance.”
My Opinion: Progressivism is just another word for socialism, a desensitizing concept that has brought pain and suffering to millions. People become subjects, wards of the state, treated like Social Security numbers or cattle they do the state’s bidding. Individual liberty represents a danger to those in power and must therefore be replaced by subservience, for the “greater good” of the society. The meaning in life can be found in the Bible, where the difference between right and wrong is clearly illustrated. In its text are lessons which have guided men for millennia. No wonder progressives are trying to destroy religious belief. The only thing they believe in is big government and Christianity and Judaism expose its evils.
2.) Newly released Benghazi documents show Obama Administration lied about attack
And quite a bit more, including the potential for ISIS to rise to seize ground and declare a caliphate. In a memo from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) to the National Security Council, the CIA and the White House five days after the attack on the consulate in Benghazi, the DIA concluded that the attack had been planned for more than a week and was retribution for an American drone strike that had killed a senior al-Qaeda leader in June 2012.
Moreover, the attack had been planned for the anniversary of 9/11 as a propaganda coup for AQ and its affiliate behind the attack, and not just a coincidence as the White House later claimed.
The date of the DIA conclusion (produced by a FOIA lawsuit from Judicial Watch) is remarkable for at least one reason. First, September 16 is an infamous date in the Benghazi timeline, as the date on which Susan Rice did a full Ginsburg to insist that the attack resulted from a spontaneous demonstration tied to an obscure YouTube video. Even though the DIA directly contradicted those talking points supplied by the White House to Rice, the Obama Regime—including the State Department and Hillary Clinton– continued to insist on using them for another two weeks.
During that period, the Obama administration kept saying that they had no indication that this was a terrorist plot, even though the president of Libya insisted that it was a planned attack. He made this statement on one of the same shows which featured Susan Rice.
My Opinion: Obama Lied? Surely that can’t be! The messiah who was going to stop the rise of the sea can’t be held responsible for the death of four Americans who were doing the bidding of the White House and the Secretary of State! We can’t expect him to know everything that is going on in the government, there’s golf to play. Sending a flunky out to lie will stop people from asking questions and make Hillary look good for not having to lie herself. My only question is, why aren’t they all in jail?
3.) “No boots on the ground” just kicked some serious ISIS butt
To be or not to be boots on the ground; that is the question. Whether to slay thy enemy with brute force or delay the inevitable is that which confronts the kingdom. Perhaps if William Shakespeare would have written a couplet regarding the recent Army Special Operations raid against ISIS, it would have sounded like that.
But first, a very special salute and hat tip to those unsung warriors of the Army Special Operations Group – Delta, aka, Delta Force. This serves as a simple reminder that when we unleash our force, it is unstoppable.
As Fox News reported over weekend, “U.S. personnel overnight killed a key Islamic State leader in charge of the group’s oil and gas operations in a raid in eastern Syria.” A team of Delta Force commandos slipped across the border from Iraq under cover of darkness Saturday aboard Black Hawk helicopters and V-22 Osprey aircraft, according to a U.S. defense official knowledgeable about details of the raid. The U.S. team killed leader Abu Sayyaf (the name shared by the Islamic jihadist organization in the Philippines) and 11 other ISIS fighters (updated to 32 killed) and captured his wife, Umm Sayyaf.”
My Opinion: Our special Ops men are the cream of the crop. They do the jobs other Americans can’t do. If only we could use them in this government and watch all the little roaches run. Let’s vote a few Special Ops members into our government. At least we know they stand with this country and we won’t get any half-baked, wimpy, parsed answers to questions.
4.) Barack Obama plans to punish Israel again
The debkafile reports exclusively from Washington: US President Barack Obama did not wait for Binyamin Netanyahu to finish building his new government coalition by its deadline at midnight Wednesday, May 6, before going into action to pay him back for forming a right-wing cabinet minus any moderate figure for resuming negotiations with the Palestinians.
Banking on Netanyahu’s assertion while campaigning for re-election that there would be no Palestinian state during his term in office, Obama is reported exclusively by our sources to have given the hitherto withheld green light to European governments to file a UN Security Council motion proclaiming an independent Palestinian state. Although Netanyahu left the foreign affairs portfolio in his charge and available to be filled by a suitably moderate figure as per the White House’s expectations did not satisfy the US President.
The White House is confident that, with the US voting in favor, the motion will be passed by an overwhelming majority and therefore be binding on the Israeli government.
To show the administration was in earnest, senior US officials sat down with their French counterparts in Paris last week to sketch out the general outline of this motion. According to our sources, they began addressing such questions as the area of the Palestinian state, its borders, security arrangements between Israel and the Palestinians and whether or not to set a hard-and-fast timeline for implementation, or phrase the resolution as a general declaration of intent.
My Opinion: I am amazed at the level of contempt this President harbors for those that disagree with him. World affairs are no place for the pouting of a narcissistic little boy who, by unlucky chance, happens to be President of the most powerful nation in the world. Is this little child simply upset because all do not agree with him, or has our Muslim in Chief a much darker purpose in his treatment of Israel. Clearly he may legitimately be called our Anti-Semite in Chief. Will his Quran-inspired hatred of Israel lead him to attempted genocide?
