Quiz on Islam

Almost wrote "Quiz on Is".....but that wouldn't help in the index-search.

So Zmirak interviewed William Kilpatrick, who is actually an expert on Islam, without the fire-and-brimstone of Pam Geller.  Z asked K for a short list of Things You Must Know, following publication of Kilpatrick's book What Catholics Need to Know About Islam.  Knowing my audience--all 12 of you--it's also useful for Protestants.

I wrote the book in order to present a fuller picture of Islam than is generally available to Catholics and other Christians.

In the Catholic Church, for instance, clergy and educators have for decades promoted a highly misleading view of Islam. One might add that it’s a dangerously misleading view because it leaves Christians unprepared for the dangerous realities of Islam. In short, Catholic leaders are guilty of covering-up Islam’s extremism.

The top five myths that Church leaders promote are as follows:

  1. Islam is a religion of peace; Islam has nothing to do with violence.
  2. Islam has much in common with Christianity, including a similar moral code, and similar ideas about marriage, family, and sexuality.
  3. The vast majority of Muslims are moderate.
  4. Jihadists misunderstand Islam. They have perverted a great religion. Luckily, they are only a tiny minority.
  5. Many Christians also misunderstand Islam. They suffer from “Islamophobia” — an irrational fear of Islam that can be overcome through dialogue.

Many in the media and in government share and promote the same deceptive myths about Islam. Much of our failure to resist the spread of Islam stems from these myths.

K is right, as any brief study of the period beginning ~700 AD through ~1600 AD will show.  Those Crusades were fought against Taliban, and Europe was defended from Taliban.  No matter the propaganda of Islamists and such pleasant ignorami as Bush the Dumber or--more recently--E. Michael Jones, Islam is deadly serious.

And I mean deadly.

Read the rest and learn something.  Then buy more ammo. 

Bolsonaro Gets It

This guy knows history, just as did the men who wrote the Second Amendment.

President Jair Bolsonaro has urged millions of Brazilians to arm themselves as soon as possible in order to fight against the tyrannical elites who want to enslave them.

“Everybody has to buy a rifle, damn it! Armed people will never be enslaved,” Bolsonaro told a crowd of supporters on Friday outside his official residence, the Alvorada Palace.

Rt.com reports: He acknowledged that weapons “cost a lot,” but insisted that those who oppose guns should stop nagging people who want and can afford to buy them.

During his campaign for office, Bolsonaro vowed to relax Brazil’s gun laws so that citizens could protect themselves from the country’s rampant crime and violence.

And he kept that promise, issuing almost a dozen decrees that made firearms, including semi-automatic assault rifles, more easily available to the public. Some of them, however, were modified by the National Congress.

The president’s latest initiative in February allowed Brazilian citizens to own up to six guns and stripped back federal police and army oversight of firearms ownership. Those with hunting licenses are now free to buy 30 guns, while sports shooters can have as many as 60.

Sixty is probably enough.

Mama Bear Puts Biden* on BLAST

Holy cow....

From Shana Chappell, mom of Kareem Nikoui, a Marine KIA at Kabul.  Addressed to Biden*

U then rolled your fucking eyes in your head like you were annoyed with me and i let you know that the only reason i was talking to you was out of respect for my son and that was the only reason why, i then proceeded to tell you again how you took my son away from me and how i will never get to hug him, kiss him, laugh with him again etc… u turned to walk away and i let you know my sons blood was on your hands and you threw your hand up behind you as you walked away from me like you were saying “ ok whatever!!!

Biden* Blocked US Citizen Evacs?

There are two very credible reporters who are saying that US troops blocked busloads of US-passport holders from the Kabul airport during the last few days.

...it appears that our American government is deliberately denying them access to Kabul airport.  This isn't a wild rumor.  Instead, it comes from two eminently reliable reporters (Lara Logan and Emily Miller) and from Rep. Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL....

Whether State or DoD, it's Biden*'s government.

Let's see if more comes to the surface on this.

By the way, scroll down and you find report(s) of mass executions happening in Kabul as well.

Well-played, Joe, you old fool.

Lone Wolf Domestic Terrorist Strikes

The FEEBS imply--strongly--that he's a 'lone wolf.'  They also said Trump was a Russian asset.

A terrorism investigation has been launched in Texas after a man shot and killed a Lyft driver, stole her car and drove to a police station where he opened fire before being killed by cops.

Imran Ali Rasheed, 32, had been investigated for suspected terrorist sympathies from 2010 to 2013, police said on Monday....

They're not saying which terrorist outfit 'inspired' him.

Former Wisconsin Resident Paul Ryan...

The guy who jack-rabbited out of Janesville, quitting rather than losing.....

Ooooooohhhh!!!  Time to clutch pearls and faint dead away!

Former House Speaker Paul Ryan told WISN 12 News on Monday there should be no question that President Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election.

"President Trump lost the election. Joe Biden won the election," Ryan said to WISN 12 News reporter Kent Wainscott during a rare interview.

That's the same guy who solved the Social Security problem, remember?

Yah.  We do, too. 

Trump lives in Ryan's head.  Any damn fool knows that pursuing election fraud is NOT 'all about Trump.'  It's about Trumpism.  But Ryan--and other NeverTrumpers--don't get that because they're Cloud People.  That's why Ryan bailed out of Janesville.  He's above that, ya'know.

By the way, Paul, wanna discuss George Soros?

Evers IS the Pig With Lipstick

Ol' Tin-Pot Tony Evers always has his mouth running.

...Republicans, including former President Donald Trump, have criticized the vetting process and warned about terrorists being allowed into the country. After a tour of the base last week, Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson questioned whether the refugees at Fort McCoy had been fully vetted and said White House assurances about the process were "lipstick on a pig."

Evers also toured the base last week and met with refugees. He said Republicans criticizing the vetting of those refugees are "vastly uninformed."

"Or they like to raise that specter of maybe some of those little kids I saw at Fort McCoy are terrorists or maybe those adults that I saw at Fort McCoy who were working hand in hand with our soldiers and airmen in Afghanistan, somehow they are terrorists even though they’ve been vetted four or five or six times even before they left Afghanistan," Evers said. "To me, it’s dog whistle crap and we don’t need any of that."...

Tony knows about being "vastly uninformed"; he showed his Ph.D. in that subject when he ran his flap on the Jacob Blake affair.

But we'll be happy to give Tin-Pot a pass, if he can prove beyond reasonable doubt that ALL those refugees were ID'd and vetted five or six times.

He can't.  He just runs his heavily-lipsticked flap.

"Catholic" Duquesne U Prof Pushes Suicide--for Whites

If we hadn't looked first, we'd think this is a Jesuit college.

But it's not.  It's billed as "Catholic."  

Duquesne University Professor Derek Hook said there are merits to the argument proposed by another professor who argued that it would be ethical for white people to kill themselves.

The anti-critical race theory group Mythinformed MKE posted the video recently. “This is part of an ‘anti-racist’ discussion on ‘nice white therapists held by the [American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work],” the group wrote on Facebook. The video appears to be from a summer session hosted by Hook, though the content is not otherwise publicly available.

“White people should commit suicide as an ethical act,” the top of a presentation by Hook said....

Prof. Hook appears to be white.  Perhaps he'd like to lead by example?

Publik SKrewels' Sweaty-Palm Days


Between now and September 17, a lot of Wisconsin public school Pompous A**ho**s will have very sweaty palms.

Because September 17 is MONEY DAY.  If the kiddies aren't there, the money stops.

Divided Loyalty in Biden* Regime

Surber notes an item from Axios.

"Top Biden officials have been excused from the ethics rules President Biden boasts about so they can do work involving large Wall Street banks, a leading defense contractor and prominent national media outlets, records show.

"At least 16 Senate-confirmed officials have received waivers to ethics laws and regulations, according to an Axios review of their federal ethics paperwork."...

McConnell approved the people who have divided loyalties.  It's something with which he is VERY comfortable.

Still Banking at Chase? WHY??

Jamie Dimon doesn't like patriots.

Chase Bank cancels its credit card accounts with General Flynn citing possible “reputational risk” to their company. In case there was any doubt what is happening in this country. 

That's the same crap-ola they'll use to stop financing gun manufacturers and retailers, friends.  

And while it's Chase this time, other large trans-nationals will follow suit.  That's because Biden*'s FDIC and/or Fed or Comptroller of the Currency is spreading the word:  "You like being a Bank?  Our bank examiners consider 'reputational risk' when we review your portfolio, ya'know.  Wouldn't want THAT on your books, would ya?" 

Fascism is a system in which the Government and private businesses operate hand-in-hand.   


The Totalitarians Get Spicy

News item of interest.

On August 10, former White House coronavirus task force senior advisor Andy Slavitt tweeted something snarky, as is his habit: “If people who go out and buy fake vaccine cards get COVID, do they expect someone to put them on a real ventilator?” One of his Twitter followers replied, “We need a way to track vaccination that isn’t on a little handwritten paper card. Something that’s very hard to falsify. You have ideas, contacts, resources I bet… Make it HAPPEN, Andy.” He responded, “Hold on for 3 ½ weeks and you will see.” That was two and a half weeks ago....

 So next weekend Little Smartmouth Andy will reveal the next phase of Totalitarianism.

After which he may be "seeing" something, too.

Reality of "Unvaxxed" in Hospitals With Wuhan Flu

The lying and manipulations surrounding the Chinese Communist Party's bio-weapon (Covid-SARS2) is gargantuan in scale.

Latest one?  That the vast majority of hospitalizations are "un-vaxxed."


As of August 15, 2021, 68% of COVID patients admitted to hospital in the U.K. who were
over the age of 50 had received one or two doses of COVID injections. By mid-August,
59% of serious cases in Israel were also among those who had received two COVID
injections, mirroring U.K. data

Only in the 50 and younger category were a majority, 74%, of British COVID patients
unvaccinated. Those claiming we’re in a pandemic of the unvaccinated fail to
differentiate between age groups

The same applies to COVID deaths in the U.K. Unvaccinated make up the majority of
deaths only in the under-50 age group. In the over-50 group, the clear majority, 70%, are
either partially or fully “vaccinated”

We cannot rely on U.S. data to get a clear idea of how the COVID shots are working, as
the CDC has chosen to only track breakthrough cases that result in hospitalization and/or

In effect, CDC is jiggering the numbers by skewing them towards hospital/death, rather than diagnoses.  

You should not be surprised.

Talking About Presidents

A lot of people say nasty things about Trump or Biden.

However, there's a big difference.

One doesn't have to lie to say nasty things about Biden.  It's all true.

The L-1 Immigrant Racket

 In an article showing that the Biden* Administration is jamming L-1 and H1-B workers into the US (bonus is paid for more immigrants!), Breitbart mentions another L-1 racket going on.

Let's describe the L-1 visa first.

...The L1 Visa is a non-immigrant visa which allows foreign companies to transfer a manager, executive, or person with specialized knowledge to a US company. The US company must be a branch office, parent, subsidiary, or affiliate of the foreign company.

The employee that is transferred must work for the US company as a manager, executive, or person with specialized knowledge. If the employee will work as a manager or an executive, the visa is specifically called an L1A visaIf the employee will work as a person with specialized knowledge, the visa is specifically called an L1B visa....

The L1 visa allows you to live and work in the United States for extended periods of time and also provides immigration benefits for your spouse and children....

With an L-1, you have the option of becoming a US citizen.

The companies utilizing L-1A or L-1B visas are "bodyshops"; companies which hire and then 'rent' programmers, engineers,  or other technical personnel to US companies.   WiPro and InfoSys are examples; headquartered in India, they have offices all over the US.  Thus they are "L-1 eligible" companies.

...Many L-1 workers stay briefly to help implement an international contract, for example, to install a new robot or a production line. But many companies import L-1 workers — typically from India — to replace American graduates via outsourcing contracts.

The law allows U.S. employers to pay L-1 workers very low salaries, often under $30,000 per year — and often much less when federal inspectors are not checking for management abuse and fraud. For example, the GAO reported that “one pattern of abuse is an L-1A manager hiring family members and appearing to manage them in order to corroborate their claim to be an L-1A manager or executive.

Many of the L-1 workers come from India’s huge population of poorly-trained and badly paid college graduates, partly because many U.S. companies have transferred many U.S. jobs into the semi-hidden U.S.-India Outsourcing Economy. That economy is managed by a U.S.-based diaspora of Indian managers who know how to control the diverse Indian workers — and who have a huge economic incentive to exclude Americans from U.S.-based jobs that can be traded to Indian graduates eager for green cards....

Those (Indian) managers have a nice little racket going for themselves:

...Indian hiring managers will sell jobs to Indians for $5,000 to $10,000, one Indian H-1B worker told Breitbart News. Honest Indian managers cannot stop the kickbacks, he said, because “you can’t survive — you will become a bottleneck in the chain. … [Senior managers] will fire you,” he said....

That's called "taking a bribe."  It's closely related to what the Mexican drug-cartel/coyotes do.

Ever wonder why that "customer service" tech who picks up the phone doesn't seem to know what they're talking about?

They don't.

...“My experience with the people from [India] is that they have no basic [information technology] knowledge,” said Mary from central New Jersey, an immigrant software expert. “They will say they have all this experience [to get hired] and then try to learn on the job. If you ask them a question, they can’t answer you. So what is happening is that we’re training them … [even though] we have our jobs — and their jobs — to do.”...

And the L1-A "managers"--who collected several thousand dollars from the job-holders--then proceed to build their own empires inside US companies:

".... That’s the way they operate — they will go over your head and start sabotaging you. They are trying to do everything they can to keep their job. … They are under a lot of pressure and are limited on what jobs they can get because of the visa. … The Indian managers know they have inexperienced people who can’t do crap, but they don’t fire them. That is another thing, they don’t fire them. An Indian manager does not fire them even because he knows this guy has a family and is married and they are not going to throw an Indian on the street...."

 Biden* has plans to super-charge that little racket, too.

...Biden’s immigration reform bill included obscure sections that would supercharge the use of foreign graduates by Fortune 500 companies. The sections create a hidden pathway for companies to import an unlimited number of foreign graduates, at low wages, with guaranteed payments of government-provided citizenship in 10 years.

If enacted, the bill would ensure that the salaries paid to young American graduates — even the wokest graduates — would crash because companies would be able to hire an unlimited supply of foreign programmers, designers, therapists, teachers, engineers, pharmacists, accountants, or managers....

So much for America First, eh?

Yesterday: Covid. Today: Marburg

 Since you Deplorables have not fallen in line quickly enough, we have a NEW danger!!


What Bobos Don't Get

Grim quotes a blog-pal over the current coercion attempt which is NOT restricted to The Vax.

...He goes on to cite David Brooks's recent piece in The Atlantic, attempting to explain why the "creative elites" Brooks so desperately wants to belong to have become objects of scorn. Brooks calls the elites "bobos," for bourgeois-bohemians, and blames their fall on "hogging profits," that is, not throwing enough tax money out of helicopters. I think Orthosphere has a better grasp:

Brooks does not understand that the unruly plebian masses do not envy his bobo lifestyle. They are not yearning to mimic, even in a vulgar and provincial way, the manners of David Brooks and his friends. He does not understand that the unruly plebian masses, whose allegiance the bobo elite has lost, are repelled by the bobos’ pencil-necked unmanliness, their officious scolding, their sexual weirdness, and their everlasting, apple-polishing striving to attract the teacher’s eye and move to the head of the class. They are embarrassed by the bobos’ juvenile spirituality, revolted by their parvenu gourmandizing, and sick to death of their half-wit moral lectures and their infantile ideals.

ICYMI, on Saturday the Pentagon issued a memo to all active AND RETIRED military stating that they 'may not disrespect' commanders.  That's in response to an upcoming open letter signed by at least two dozen top brass condemning the generals who followed Biden*'s orders on the Afghan retreat.  They should have resigned rather than left the door wide open for the bloodbath that will be coming--but they did not.

Anyhow, the coercion includes that memo, the most-likely coercion of health-care facilities to require The Vax of all their employees (Medicare/Medicaid money, remember?) and the coercion of other US businesses for the same purpose.

What does 'coercion' have to do with bobo?  Ask Toynbee:

 ...The piper who has lost his cunning can no longer conjure the feet of the multitude into a dance; and if, in a rage and panic, he now attempts to convert himself into a drill-sergeant or a slave-driver, and to coerce by physical force a people that he can no longer lead by his old magnetic charm, then all the more surely and swiftly he defeats his own intention; for the followers who had merely flagged and fallen out of step as the heavenly music died away will be stung by a touch of the whip into active rebellion.”...

"Two weeks to flatten the curve" has lost its 'heavenly music'; the multitude is no longer dancing to that tune, or any of the rest of the lies.

Yup. The Capitol Cop MURDERED Ashli

A few posts below this one you'll find some combox GammaGirl arguing over the use of deadly force--a topic about which she is either totally ignorant, or to which she is willfully blind.

Jonathan Turley is neither.

..The DOJ report did not read like any post-shooting review I have read as a criminal defense attorney or law professor. The DOJ statement notably does not say that the shooting was clearly justified. Instead, it stressed that “prosecutors would have to prove not only that the officer used force that was constitutionally unreasonable, but that the officer did so ‘willfully.’” It seemed simply to shrug and say that the DOJ did not believe it could prove “a bad purpose to disregard the law” and that “evidence that an officer acted out of fear, mistake, panic, misperception, negligence, or even poor judgment cannot establish the high level of intent.”

While the Supreme Court, in cases such as Graham v. Connor, has said that courts must consider "the facts and circumstances of each particular case," it has emphasized that lethal force must be used only against someone who is "an immediate threat to the safety of the officers or others, *and* ... is actively resisting arrest or attempting to evade arrest by flight."...

Want that in short?


The report was a whitewash, and not even a skillfully-crafted one.

The cup is a MURDERER.

The Tea Leaves in Minnesota

Interesting observation from the Ultra-Liberal Land of Minnehaha.

Gov. Tim Walz says Minnesotans must learn to live well into the future with the lingering threat of COVID-19 — but not necessarily with the executive orders and mandates that dominated the early months of the pandemic.

We've moved from pandemic to end-demic," Walz said Thursday in a wide-ranging interview. "What we've learned over the last 18 months is we're going to have to figure out smart ways to live with this into the future....StarTrib quoted at Remnant

Oh, really?  Walz was even more prolific with executive orders than was Tin-Pot Tony Evers, until he gave up that power in July to get a budget through the Legislature up there.

Think he heard a drumbeat?

COVID fatigue is very real. And just as there are plenty of “regular Joes” who are sick and tired of the Covid Show if only because they want their football, beer, and good times back, so too there are politicians on the [Democrat] side of the aisle who may not wish to go down with this clown show. Unless they happen to be billionaires,... many Dems are not even close to the inner circles of Team Davos and as things spiral out of control in the Swamp, they will begin asking themselves one key question: What’s in this for me?

Indeed.   Tin-Pot Tony has not issued an Exec Order on the "crisis DOOM!!!! pandemic" during this entire calendar year.  He's come up with silly games and give-aways to entice the masses instead, and they haven't been too well-received.

As the Biden* regime's numbers sink into the ocean and as he tries even harder to force compliance on The Vax, you will see Flyover Country Democrats running for the hills, hoping you will not remember their early Totalitarian moves.

But we WILL remember.  Heh.

1930's Germany and Foresight

Here's a post-card circulated in interwar Germany.

Those Krauts knew about elecrronics, eh?  HT:  Ace & Co.
