Obamination: Gnat Strain

King James Bible Mt 23:24
Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

They bollixed the Presidential oath of Office, so the Chief Justice and President Obama repeated the oath, just to make sure. How in the eternal love of God can they worry about the sequence of words in a vain, forsworn oath while ignoring the more significant fact that President Obama has failed to prove one of the vital factors of eligibility: his status as a native born citizen?

“I Barack Hussein Obama do solemnly swear that I will execute the office of president to the United States faithfully,” “And will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God,” [WND]

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” [memory.loc.gov]

The adverb’s sequence does not effect the meaning in this case.

If anything would ruin the oath, it is that last addition, which is not in the Constitution. What harm does it do? It was repeated in the re-enactment.

Why all the fuss and news coverage over an inconsequential detail while Obama’s eligibility and illegal fund raising practices are totally ignored?

Which office is most important, President or Vice President? Compare their oaths of office.

I, A— B—, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.[Wikipedia]

If the sequence of verb and adverb were significant, wouldn’t the extra bindings in the VP oath be even more so? So why hasn’t the Constitution been amended to enrich the Presidential oath?

Obama was probably born in Kenya to an alien and an underage citizen, if he is a citizen, he traveled illegally to Pakistan, and he sealed the records which would disclose his citizenship status. He refuses to display the vault copy of his birth certificate and spent enormous amounts of money contesting litigation demanding its disclosure, but the Supreme Court don’t give a damn. Yet the Chief Justice made a special trip to the White House to re-administer the oath. Am I the only one to perceive the incongruity?

Protest Persecution of Geert Wilders

The Amsterdam Court of Appeals ordered prosecutors to bring charges against MP Geert Wilders, claiming that he vilified and incited hatred against Muslims with his video and his speeches.

This persecution sets an extremely bad precedent, thereby threatening our first amendment right to free expression. I have added my endorsement to this petition and I urge you to join the signers in promising a boycott of Dutch products in retaliation for persecuting Wilders. Please sign this petition immediately and forward it to your friends.

To: The Dutch Government

WHEREAS Geert Wilders has exercised his fundamental human right of freedom of expression and spoken out, with facts and evidence, of the threat posed by radical Islam;

WHEREAS certain elements within Islamic communities have threatened a boycott of Dutch goods if Geert Wilders is not punished by the Dutch government for exercising his freedom of expression; and

WHEREAS certain elements in Dutch industry and the Dutch government are suggesting that Geert Wilders be prosecuted civilly or criminally, in order to prevent such a boycott;

IT IS RESOLVED that, in the event that the Dutch government attempts, in any way, to punish or prosecute Geert Wilders, civilly or criminally, for exercising his freedom of expression, the undersigned will initiate a boycott of any and all Dutch goods.

Its Shari’ah, Stupid #17

In this seventeenth installment of offensive Jihad in Fiqh, we discover how passive and spiritual the Sufis really are.

Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi, d. 1624, sufi. Cit. ur Saiyid Athar Abbas Rizvi, Muslim Revivalist Movements in Northern India in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries (Agra, Lucknow 1965), s. 247-50; Yohanan Friedmann, Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi. An Outline of His Thought and a Study of His Image in the Eyes of Posterity (Montreal 1971), s. 73-4.

Shariat can be fostered through the sword.

Kufr and Islam are opposed to each other. The progress of one is possible only at the expense of the other and co-existence between these two contradictory faiths is unthinkable. […]

The execution of the accursed kafir of Gobindwal [Arjun, fifth guru of the Sikhs, executed in 1606] is an important achievement and is the cause of great defeat of the accursed Hindus. Whatever might have been the motive behind the execution, the dishonour of the kafirs is an act of highest grace for the Muslims. […] Whenever a Jew is killed, it is for the benefit of Islam.

Islamic law can be spread by the sword. So far, so good, such a peaceful mystical Sufi. Co-existence is unthinkable. Yes, it really is! Whenver a Jew is killed, islam benefits. Got a clue yet?

Obamination: to the ‘Muslim World’

The Miami Herald published the prepared text of President Obama’s Inaugural Address. For the purpose of this blog post, I present one paragraph excerpted from the transcript for dissection.

To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect. To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society’s ills on the West – know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.

  • To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect.

Anything other than seeking to emancipate them from Allah’s yoke of slavery is a step backward. Peaceful coexistence with Islam is not possible because Islam is permanent war.

  • based on mutual interest

We have no mutual interest with Islam. Islam’s interest is total world conquest and domination, so that only Allah is worshiped altogether and everywhere; so that Shari’ah is enforced globally. Our interest is in liberty, security, prosperity & peace. There is no intersection, no convergence; nothing shared.

  • and mutual respect.

There is no mutual respect and can be none. Islam is contemptuous of everything un-Islamic. Islam hates our way of life without reservation and seeks to destroy it. It labels us Kuffar: rebells against Allah who must be defeated and gathered together into Hell.

  • To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict,

That is what Islam is all about: total world conquest; to make Allah’s word superior; his writ run on a global scale. That is why the Qur’an contains open ended, unlimited imperatives to fight pagans and make war upon people with scriptural religions. That is why Muslims first attacked our merchant vessels in the 18th century.

  • or blame their society’s ills on the West –

Such projection is standard operating procedure for tyrants, Muslim & Kuffar alike. We serve as a handy focus of popular resentment to prevent it turning inward against the tyrants.

  • know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy.

Islam measures glory by building empire, not peace & prosperity. Islam is about power & predation, not about construction, production & consumption. The Muslim who reconquers Israel will receive the highest honors, superceeded only by the Muslim who conquers America.

  • To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.

Those hands always have been, are now and always will be clenched upon swords. Islam seeks conquest; nothing else. The contest among Muslims is over who will sit upon the throne, wield power and reap the spoils. While they hold power, they will be stirring up Jihad. Whoever holds power among Muslims will be rousing the rabble to fight; that is their divine mission which will only be completed when the entire world is ruled by Moe’s Caliph. The Muslim ruler who drops his sword will be overthrown eventually by one who will grasp and wield it.

Giving foreign aid to Islamic nations is the ultimate in idiocy; it allows them to dedicate more of their own resources to preparation for Jihad.

President Obama’s remarks to the ‘Muslim world’ are based upon false premises; assumptions of mutual interests and respect, both of which are purely mythological. His remarks assume that Islamic aggression is a function of nationalism & personal leadership, while it is actually based upon Islamic doctrine. Bold blue underlined text in this blog post is linked to sources of vital information, particularly the Qur’an and Jihad: The Islamic Doctrine of Permanent War. Read them and know the magnitude of the blunder you participated in November four of last year.

And so it begins…

From ABC News: Obama Moves toward Shuttering Gitmo

Last night, just hours after he took the oath of office, Obama ordered Secretary of Defense Robert Gates to direct the chief prosecutor of the Office of Military Commissions to seek a continuance of 120 days for any case that has been referred to the office of military commissions and to cease referring any new cases for prosecution.

This morning, military judges hearing the cases of Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the self-confessed mastermind of 9/11, and his co-conspirators, as well as a different judge hearing the case of Canadian detainee Omar Khadr, granted the prosecution’s motion. According to the motion filed by the prosecutors, the continuance was requested “in order to provide the administration sufficient time to conduct a review of detainees currently held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to evaluate the cases of detainees not approved for release or transfer to determine whether prosecution may be warranted for any offenses those detainees may have committed, and to determine which forum best suits any future prosecution.”

Is it even possible to grasp the enormity of these fateful decisions? to understand the dire implications for our future? Let’s just focus our attention for a moment on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Just who is he and how important is he in our attempts to prosecute this Global War on Terror?

According to the 9/11 Commission Report he was “the principal architect of the 9/11 attacks”. He is also thought to have had, or has confessed to, a role in many of the most significant terrorist plots over the last twenty years, including the World Trade Center 1993 bombings, the Operation Bojinka
plot, an aborted 2002 attack on Los Angeles’ U.S. Bank Tower, the Bali nightclub bombings, the failed bombing of American Airlines Flight 63, the Millennium Plot, and the murder of Daniel Pearl.

Think you already know all about Sheikh Khalid’s terrorist activities? You might just be surprised. Here is what he has confessed to (so far):

The February 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center in New York City
A failed “shoe bomber” operation
The October 2002 attack in Kuwait
The nightclub bombing in Bali, Indonesia
A plan for a “second wave” of attacks on major U.S. landmarks to be set in the spring or summer of 2002 after the 9/11 attacks, which includes more hijackings of commercial airlines and having them flown into various buildings in the U.S. including the Library Tower in Los Angeles , the Sears Tower in Chicago, the Columbia Center in Seattle and the Empire State Building in New York
Plots to attack oil tankers and U.S. naval ships in
the Straits of Hormuz, the Straits of Gibraltar and in Singapore
A plan to blow up the Panama Canal
Plans to assassinate Jimmy Carter [Yes, that’s right, even Jimmy Carter]
A plot to blow up suspension bridges in New York City
A plan to destroy the Sears Tower in Chicago with burning fuel trucks
Plans to “destroy” Heathrow Airport, Canary Wharf and Big Ben in London
A planned attack on “many” nightclubs in Thailand
A plot targeting the New York Stock Exchange and other U.S. financial targets

A plan to destroy buildings in Eilat, Israel
Plans to destroy U.S. embassies in Indonesia, Australia and Japan in 2002.
Plots to destroy Israeli embassies in India, Azerbaijan, the Philippines and Australia
Surveying and financing an attack on an Israeli El-Al flight from Bangkok Sending several “mujahideen” into Israel to survey “strategic targets” with the intention of attacking them
The November 2002 suicide bombing of a hotel in Mombasa, Kenya
The failed attempt to shoot down an Israeli passenger jet leaving Mombasa airport in Kenya Plans to attack U.S. targets in South Korea
Providing financial support for a plan to attack U.S., British and Jewish targets in Turkey
Surveillance of U.S. nuclear power plants in order to attack them
A plot to attack NATO‘s headquarters in Europe
Planning and surveillance in a 1995 plan (the “Bojinka Operation”) tobomb 12 American passenger jets
The planned assassination attempt against then-U.S. President Bill Clinton during a mid-1990s trip to the Philippines. [Sorry Bill, no pass for Democrats]
“Shared responsibility” for a plot to kill Pope John Paul II
Plans to assassinate Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf
An attempt to attack a U.S. oil company in Sumatra, Indonesia, “owned by the Jewish former [U.S.] Secretary of State Henry Kissinger
The beheading of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl

Of course, not everyone is pleased with the circumstances of poor Khalid’s incarceration.

Human rights groups, including Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the Center for Constitutional Rights, and US military defense lawyers have criticised the military commissions for lacking necessary rights for a fair trial. Critics generally argue for a trial either in a civilian federal court as a common criminal suspect, or by court martial as a prisoner under the Geneva Conventions.

And so it begins… Our beloved new leader has spoken, and the good Khalid will find his way into that labyrinth of the American criminal justice system. And if our new president and his followers have their way, he will be tried in a NYC courtroom, with all, or almost all, of the benefits of an American citizen. High-profile trial lawyers will trip all over themselves to represent him. O. J. Simpson look out, your days of enjoying the dubious distinction of having the most watched criminal trial in the twentieth century are about to be eclipsed. Of course, the old media will be thrilled. I can almost hear Nancy Grace and Geraldo Rivera licking their chops in anticipation.

Is this how it’s going to be? Is this how it will all end? Have we just voted ourselves into the dustbin of history? If the Sword of Justice does not fall upon this monster’s head, is there any hope, any hope at all for a just and righteous world? Have we just bartered away justice for the appearance of justice? Have we sold our precious souls to please a jaded world? – rg
