“Murphy’s Law” by Jim Murphy

Hello once again from the Primary Headquarters Of Jingoistic Right Wing Conspiratorial Texans Who Never Desired To Own A Confederate Flag ……. Until Now.

SUPREMES:

I was never a huge fan of DIANA ROSS AND THE SUPREMES which of course were a group of singers who were popular…. with some…. during the so called MOTOWN days. I was also not a huge fan of THE MOTOWN SOUND either. BUT I believe that I would put more trust in Diana Ross and her squalling group than I can put into the latest version of THE SUPREMES. And, of course, that would be the majority of the SUPREME COURT JUSTICES who have decided that the writers and the signers of the Constitution of the United States didn’t know what they were saying.

I call your attention to the TENTH AMENDMENT to the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES:

“THE POWERS NOT DELEGATED TO THE UNITED STATES BY THE CONSTITUTION, NOR PROHIBITED BY IT TO THE STATES, ARE RESERVED TO THE STATES RESPECTIVELY, OR TO THE PEOPLE.”

Apparently, our Present Supreme Court, with the exception possibly of three Justices, seem to have overlooked entirely the Tenth Amendment of our Constitution. This past week, ONLY Justices Antonin Scalia (Reagan); Clarence Thomas (G.H.W. Bush); and Samuel Alito (G.W. Bush) appear to have a real grasp of The Constitution of the United States. Chief Justice John Roberts (G.W.Bush) will on occasion abide by his sworn duties BUT on other occasions seems to have sold out to the far left Socialists.

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Clinton); Sonia Sotomayor (Obama); Elena Kagan (Obama); and Stephen Breyer (Clinton) all have their heads permanently up their backsides on practically every issue.

Which brings us to the perennial SWING VOTE in a normal 5 to 4 decision. And that is Justice Anthony Kennedy (Reagan). Justice Kennedy will on rare occasions cast his vote and appear to actually have the Constitution and the best interests of the people of the United States in mind while in other instances he appears to be as far left as the three squacks (Ginsburg, Sotomayor and Kagan) and their faithful companion Breyer. And I want you to look back over the past 6 or so years and see just how many times the lives of all of us have been placed in the hands of ONE SUPREME COURT JUSTICE in a 5 to 4 vote on an issue. Most of the time, Anthony Kennedy is the single most powerful individual in the United States but on occasion Chief Justice John Roberts will cross over to the dark side.

This past week saw the Supreme Court decide that the challenge to The Affordable Healthcare Act (ObamaCare) while poorly written was nevertheless overturned since, in the words of Chief Justice Roberts ……… To read the law the way the challengers wanted — limiting tax credits to people who live in states that set up their own health insurance marketplaces would lead to a “calamitous result that Congress could not have intended.” REALLY? For some reason I had always labored under the impression that the job of the Supreme Court was to decide on the CONSTITUTIONALITY of legislation. BUT it seems now as if Chief Justice Roberts along with the other left wing Socialists have decided that their job is also to read the minds of the Congressional Idiots and decide what they meant rather than what they said. BUT why should we expect Roberts to do ANYTHING to stand in the way of this ObamaCare Legislation when he voted with the Socialists the very first time the law came before the Supreme Court.

Then of course the following day in another 5 to 4 vote with Anthony Kennedy once again proving that he is the most powerful individual in the United States upheld the Same Sex Marriage laws and overturned all State Statutes which did not recognize Same Sex Marriage as a legal right. Since this verdict was handed down, I have read the Constitution of the United States THREE TIMES. Not once did I see the word MARRIAGE in The Constitution and from all I remember, the marriage license which damn near all Americans get prior to marriage is A STATE MARRIAGE LICENSE issued by the State in which the ceremony will take place.

If I remember correctly each state issues:

Driver’s Licenses
Hunting Licenses
Business Licenses
Vehicle Licenses
Medical Licenses
Conceal Carry Licenses (Permits)
MARRIAGE LICENSES

When will The Supremes and the federal government decide to control all of these licenses? Keep this thought in mind. This is not about marrying people of the same sex…… IT IS ABOUT CONTROL. It is about slowly but surely CONTROLLING ALL OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS and in particular, Religious Freedom as guaranteed in the First Amendment.

Oh yeah, we have all been told over the past year or so that 70% of the people in America favor Same Sex Marriage. But doesn’t it strike you as a trifle unusual that the results of Same Sex Marriage when voted on by a number of states WAS DEFEATED. If memory serves me correctly, a number of years back even California voted against Same Sex Marriage.

But once again, why should any of us expect the truth from this present federal administration or from the news media as a whole. I do not wish to intrude on any personal relationships which people might have but in the words spoken by Fletcher in The Outlaw Josey Wales…… “Don’t piss down my back and tell me it’s rainin’.” Because that is just exactly what this present federal government is doing.

It is pretty obvious that the far left Socialists have control of our federal government and the news media. You can gather that just from seeing what a stink they rose over the Confederate Flag. Well folks, that is just the beginning. I can almost assure you all that while never letting up on the issue of slavery which ended officially in this country in 1865, they will try to wipe out all mention of the Confederate States of America along with anyone connected with the Confederacy and before it is all over, the American Civil War will not be mentioned in the History Books of our fading public education system. Before it is all over, these same people will make a serious move on anything or anyone connected with the Civil War.

At least they have not made a move on the American Flag…………… YET.
If you are satisfied with the way the present day Supremes are doing their jobs then vote for Hillary. BUT if you have had enough of having our country being controlled by a single vote in the Supreme Court then let’s get a real Conservative elected in 2016.

Keep these following RULES in mind and just see how many are already in place. These are SAUL ALINSKY’S Eight Levels Of Control In Order To Create A Social State.

1) Control healthcare and you control the people……………… (DONE)
2) Increase the Poverty level as high as possible. Poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live. (DONE)
3) Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty. (DONE)
4) Remove the ability of people to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a Police State. (THEY ARE TRYING)
5) Take control of every aspect of their lives; Food, Housing, and Income. (PROCEEDING WELL AND CLOSE TO ACCOMPLISHMENT)
6) Take control of what people read and listen to. Take control of what children learn in school. (PROCEEDING WELL PARTIALLY ACCOMPLISHED)
7) Remove the belief in God from the Government and Schools. (ALMOST DONE)
8) Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to tax the wealthy with the support of the poor. (CLOSE)

IT IS ALL ABOUT CONTROL!

QUOTES:

“Many people are looking at the recent Supreme Court decisions about ObamaCare and same-sex marriage………. But there is a deeper and more long-lasting impact of these decisions that raise the question whether we are still living in America where WE THE PEOPLE are supposed to decide what kind of society we want, not have our betters impose their notions on us.”… THOMAS SOWELL

“When any branch of government can exercise powers not authorized by either statutes or the Constitution, WE THE PEOPLE are no longer free citizens but subjects and our public servants are really our public masters. And America is no longer America. The freedom for which whole generations of Americans have fought and died is gradually but increasingly being taken away from us with smooth and slippery words.”……… THOMAS SOWELL

“Can the Republicans — or the country — afford to put another mushy moderate in the White House, who can appoint more mushy moderates to the Supreme Court?”… THOMAS SOWELL

“The Supreme Court of the United States has descended from the disciplined legal reasoning of John Marshall and Joseph Story to the mystical aphorisms of the fortune cookie.”… SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA

“An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!…. Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power…. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us…. Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of the chains of slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.”….. PATRICK HENRY

MORE STUFF:

While I am not a huge fan of Marco Rubio (however I do like him better than Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, and Donald Trump), I have seen one statement made by Senator Rubio with which I am in total agreement:

“Our Allies NO LONGER TRUST US and Our Enemies NO LONGER FEAR US.” He is right on the money with that statement. BUT not only do our ALLIES NO LONGER TRUST our FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, a LARGE SEGMENT OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NO LONGER TRUST THE FEDERAL BUREAUCRATS WHO COMPRISE THE LION’S SHARE OF THE MEMBERS OF OUR ELECTED AND APPOINTED FEDERAL OFFICIALS.

I never thought I would see the day when I, personally, have absolutely zero trust in any branch of the federal government. I am sure there are some individual federal employees who are “worker bees” who feel the same way but just cannot voice their opinions for fear of losing their jobs.
————————————-
My wife has several bird feeders in our back yard and we put out feed daily for a conglomeration of various species of birds. We have everything from Hummingbirds to Bullock’s Orioles to Western Tanagers and numerous species of Finches. For the past 6 weeks or more, two squirrels have been raiding the bird feeders. Now while I think the squirrels are fun to watch they tend to be a bit destructive to anything which they believe might hold food.

SO, I purchased a live trap and have baited it for several weeks and have caught lots of doves but no squirrels. So I moved the trap to an area on our patio that I knew the squirrels visited and the doves did not. Yesterday I was greeted by a squirrel who was caught in my trap. After I had my lunch I put the trap containing the squirrel in the back seat of my Explorer and headed off about 5 miles to a wooded area to release the captured squirrel. Of course all the way out to that wooded area that little squirrel was going nuts in my trap and when I stopped I took the trap under an oak tree and with a cane I carefully opened the end of the trap and the squirrel shot out of there rapidly.

Now here is where the fun started, he/she ran right up to the top of this oak tree BUT unfortunately a Mockingbird had a nest up there and was not pleased and immediately attacked the squirrel. The squirrel shot down the tree and ran about 10 yards to another oak tree and ran to the top ONLY to meet a second Mockingbird who was as pissed as the first one and this one also attacked the squirrel. Down the tree went the squirrel and ran to a third oak tree, all the while both Mockingbirds were buzzing him knocking him off his feet one time. The squirrel finally made it up to the top of the third tree which was empty and that little squirrel stood up on his/her hind legs and began to chatter rapidly. I was sure he/she was eating my ass out for exposing him/her to not one but two killer Mockingbirds.

The Mockingbird is the State Bird of Texas and they are plenty fun to watch. A couple of them will gang up on a cat or a dog or a squirrel as well as attack crows and other birds who happen to be flying in their territory. I really like Mockingbirds and they have provided me with lots of laughs over the years. They are absolutely fearless and will double team a cat with one of them acting about half injured and just as the cat is ready to charge, the other one will fly in at full speed and knock fur off the back of the cat. I like to call it DEATH FROM ABOVE. And as a general rule, cats are too stupid to realize that they are being used by these great little birds.

Years ago, I would have probably shot the squirrels and have been done with the problem but I don’t really care to kill animals that are fun to watch……. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF GRACKLES and SNAKES. They are still on my death list.

Gutter Politics by the Bear

It has long been a tradition in American politics that the families and especially the children of candidates running for public office where “OFF LIMITS” to media criticism.

But that tradition requires people of higher morals and character and you don’t find that among the lefts’ media critics.

Wendy Williams, who I never heard of, has a day time TV gab fest show and the not very funny comic Bill Maher who is desperate for TV ratings chose to sink to the bottom of the pig pen and slime Sarah Palins’ daughter Bristol who is pregnant. Sarah has taken more than her share of abuse from the media over the years and has handled it like a lady.

Bristol Palin is pregnant and the circumstances around her pregnancy are no one’s business but her and the father to be.

When our media indulges into this kind of gutter politics the media deserves to be chastised and scorned by the public at large.

Gutfeld: Let’s talk about the heroism of Bristol Palin

BUCHANAN TO OBAMA By Patrick J. Buchanan

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America .. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation.. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to…. This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.. Jeremiah Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60’s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas — to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??

Barack talks about new ‘ladders of opportunity’ for blacks. Let him go to Altoona ? And Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for ‘deserving’ white kids…? Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America’s fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago.

“Murphy’s Law” by Jim Murphy

Hello once again from The Association For Vast Right Wing Fringe Jingoistic Xenophobic Conspiratorial Second Amendment Supporters Of West Texas.

HATE:

I am sure that most normal people in our country were upset by the recent murders of 9 people in a Charleston, South Carolina church. And the people of the City of Charleston, South Carolina are to be commended on the manner in which they responded to this tragic incident. I can’t even imagine how the City of Baltimore and their incompetent administration would have reacted to a similar event.

BUT, before the complete facts were even known about the Charleston murders, Barack Hussein Obama along with Hillary Rodham Clinton were attempting to make political hay out of the incident. And of course, the media played right along with these two hacks. I was watching one program on FOX News when one of their “Contributors” asked the question which I am sure was really paramount in the minds of the people of Charleston and elsewhere across America, and that was: “What were the ROOT CAUSES for this act”? Once again the old ROOT CAUSE question reared its ugly head.

And close on the heels of the “ROOT CAUSES” bunch we had those who were more interested in whether or not this would be classified as a “HATE CRIME”. And of course the “HATE CRIME” question gave the federal government and the Department of Justice their ticket to this show. I cannot remember the exact year when the “HATE CRIME” designation became the rule rather than the exception but I noticed that in the State of New Mexico, every law enforcement agency was coerced into using the same reporting forms for criminal reports. AND of course this is when the “HATE CRIME” designation came into being. AND this “HATE CRIME” designation was required by the State of New Mexico but I am sure it was mandated by the U.S. Federal Government and had to be followed IF NEW MEXICO WISHED TO CONTINUE RECEIVING FEDERAL FUNDS of any kind.

SO, in my view, even back then, it was not about whether or not HATE really was a driving factor in the crime but more related as to giving the federal government a door to open a federal investigation should they desire. NOW, keep in mind, this is just my own personal opinion but it sure seemed strange to me that overnight, on a given date, every single law enforcement agency at every level in the State of New Mexico had to use a form allegedly mandated by the State but I strongly suspect that much of it was mandated by the federal government.

After speaking with law enforcement officials and prosecuting attorneys, I came away with the feeling that in the long run, if a particular crime was given the designation of a “HATE CRIME” that the degree of felony would be raised and more than likely the minimum penalty would be more severe. It also occurred to me that in most cases, the actual proof of it being a “HATE CRIME” could be rather hard to prove. And I never once saw a case where a Caucasian was killed by a member of a Racial Minority was even suspected of being a “HATE CRIME”.

In my opinion, an individual who in cold blood MURDERS multiple people, whether or not it is designated as a “HATE CRIME” is fairly academic. It is simply just another way for politicians to keep the public DIVIDED, whether it is by RACE; RELIGION; ETHNICITY; or FINANCIAL CAPABILITIES, keeping the American People more interested in their differences is beneficial to the Elected Officials at practically every level.
And keep in mind that the more bizarre the crime, the less chances of receiving and serving the MAXIMUM SENTENCE… including the death penalty.

I did see interviews with a number of people who lived in Charleston, S.C. and some of them lost family members in the church murders. I could not even begin to explain the glaring differences in those people and the criminal rioters and incompetent elected officials of Baltimore, MD. The PEOPLE of Charleston, S.C. are to be commended for setting an excellent example of how people should act, even under the most stressful of conditions.

OVERREACTION:

In addition to the immediate rush to politicize the events in Charleston by trying to convince the American people that additional gun control laws might have prevented the deaths in the Charleston church, the elected officials at practically every level have rushed to place the blame for these shootings on gun control, of course, but suddenly many have decided that the “Confederate Flag” should be removed from every government ground in the country.

First of all, we saw a photograph of the murderer holding what is actually the Battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia. Most people believe this recognizable flag is the official Flag of the Confederate States of America. BUT it is not. The flag which is known as “The Stars and Bars” is the official flag of the Confederacy.

In an immediate rush to please special interest groups, many states are taking steps to remove the Confederate Flag and the Confederate Battle Flag from all government property. I can understand how many black Americans are offended by the display of any Confederate Flag…..BUT….. get real, it was not a flag which caused this guy to commit mass murder.

I heard this morning that Amazon and other on line locations have taken ALL CONFEDERATE MERCHANDISE OFF THE MARKET. I heard that one flag company which for years had manufactured all kinds of flags, the Confederate Battle Flag among them, had ceased the manufacture of those flags and persons who had already paid for one of those flags would have their money returned.

There are also some people who are calling for re-naming public schools who are named for anyone connected with the South during the American Civil War. And of course if a school athletic team happens to be called “The Rebels”, they are also in the sights of the Political Correctness Police

Then, I hear that any statues of people who were part of the Confederate States of America are under the gun for removal. Even at the University of Texas and I believe in the Senate Building there is a statue of Jefferson Davis and there are movements afoot to remove them. One of these movements is being led by Harry Reid which makes me want to oppose that. Perhaps Harry Reid and others might go back a bit in history and see what Jefferson Davis did prior to the secession of the Southern States. Perhaps these boobs should go back and find out what Robert E. Lee did prior to the secession of the Southern States.

But the point is, if we remove all vestiges of the Confederate Flag and we remove all statues of any person connected with the Confederacy, will this bring back those people murdered in the Charleston church? Of will it in any way insure that at some point in the future some other nut won’t do the same thing. Then which inanimate object will the Liberals/Progressives/Marxists/Democrats blame?

Also, this past week end I saw numerous programs on the Ku Klux Klan on television. Was this done

It is almost as if some people believe that if we remove anything which reminds us of the Confederacy that racism and racial prejudice will suddenly come to an end. Then the next move will be to remove any mention of the American Civil War from school books and any programs relating to same from movies and television. The history of our country is obviously not all good deeds. It is loaded with some really bad behavior by people of all races. BUT it is our history and should not be kept from future generations. It appears to me that the objective of this movement is to re-write history. If they succeed in doing this, then everything our country stands for is gone.

AND, finally, isn’t it odd how many multiple murders take place in GUN-FREE-ZONES?

BEWARE! THE WORD POLICE have a firm hold and the next step is THE THOUGHT POLICE. Our First Amendment Rights are rapidly being swept away.

QUOTES:

“There are no sure things in politics, but Hillary Clinton is the closest thing to a sure thing to become the Democrats’ candidate for president in 2016….. This is one of the painful but inescapable signs of our time. There is nothing in her history that would qualify her for the presidency, and much that should disqualify her. What is even more painful is that none of that matters politically. Many people simply want a woman to be president, and Hillary is the best known woman in politics, though by no means the best qualified.”… THOMAS SOWELL

“The truly historic catastrophe of American foreign policy –not only failing to stop Iran from going nuclear, but making it more difficult for Israel to stop them — was also something that happened on Hillary Clinton’s watch as Secretary of State.”…THOMAS SOWELL

“A President of the United States — any president– has the lives of more than 300 million people in his or her hands, and the future of Western civilization. If the debacles and disasters of the Obama administration have still not demonstrated the irresponsibility of choosing a president on the basis of demographic characteristics, it is hard to imagine what could.”… THOMAS SOWELL

“An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!…. Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power…. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us….

MORE STUFF:

This week I have seen several programs and read several articles which also contained pictures if the FORMER NAACP leader from Spokane, Rachel Dolezal. I saw her in several different hair styles which were all ugly, and it finally dawned upon me just exactly who she reminded me of and it was Elsa Lanchester as The Bride of Frankenstein.
———————————-
WOW! Almost every day, President Barack Hussein Obama makes a statement which convinces me that he thinks the rest of us are complete fools. His latest brilliant observation: “RACISM IS NOT CURED”. Boy, nothing escapes the keen observation of the mob controlled Chicago Community Organizer. Of course, the fact that he and his jug butted wife and some of his far left Marxist associates are the primary cause for racial distrust on all fronts being more prevalent now than it was six years ago….Hey! Wait a minute. Isn’t that along about the time that this arrogant ass was elected? Say, you don’t suppose this could be a clue, do you?
————————————–
This week we learned of the death of Heisman Trophy winning Running Back from Texas A & M, John David Crow. John David Crow won the Heisman Trophy in 1957. He played under Paul “Bear” Bryant. Now if I have to explain to anyone who Paul “Bear” Bryant was then all is surely lost. Of course John David Crow was a bruising running back but back in those years he was a two way player and most said that he was a better defensive back than an offensive ball carrier. I know he was one tough cookie and probably looked tough on the day he died. Of course he went on to play in the NFL and converted to tight end with the St. Louis Cardinals. After his pro career he coached with Bear Bryant at Alabama and was the head coach at Northeast Louisiana University, now known as Louisiana Monroe. Later, he returned to College Station, Texas where he worked at various positions in the athletic department at Texas A & M until his retirement in 2001.

I was fortunate enough to have been able to see John David Crow play in person and on television. He was part of the Texas A & M team which defeated the University of Texas in Austin in 1956. This was the FIRST time that had happened. John David Crow was a class act. He was 79 years old.

Is it just me or do any of you find it a bit puzzling that almost immediately, the shooting at the Charleston church was promptly being referred to as TERRORISM, particularly by the federal hacks and the media?

Now, think back several years to the mass murders in a true Terrorist Attack at Ft. Hood. The shooter was Major Nadal Malik Hasan and almost before the smoke cleared the Obama administration was classifying this event as WORKPLACE VIOLENCE.

Apparently, consistency is not a high priority item on the Obama Administration’s list.
————————————-
One last item. Bill O’Reilly has come up with a brilliant idea that ALL GUN CRIMES should be FEDERAL VIOLATIONS and this would be the only way to curb gun violence. You know for someone who is as well educated and as intelligent as Bill O’Reilly, doesn’t it seem a bit odd to come up with such a complete idiotic idea? I think he and Geraldo must have been dining from the same dish.

The Myth of Muslim Radicalization by Daniel Greenfield

Islam rule the world

After some of its quarter of a million Muslims headed to join ISIS, Quebec decided the answer was a $2 million anti-radicalization center headed by a specialist in cultural sensitivity. But if you’re about to be beheaded by a masked ISIS Jihadist, a specialist in cultural sensitivity isn’t going to help you much.

Western governments nevertheless keep rolling out their culturally sensitive approaches to fighting ISIS.

The key element in Obama’s strategy for fighting ISIS isn’t the F-15E Strike Eagle, it’s a Twitter account run by a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer which claims to “Counter Violent Extremism” by presenting moderate Islamists like Al Qaeda as positive role models for the Islamic State’s social media supporters.

So far 75% of planes flown on combat missions against ISIS return without engaging the enemy, but the culturally sensitive State Department Twitter account has racked up over 5,000 tweets and zero kills.

Cultural sensitivity hasn’t exactly set Iraq on fire in fighting ISIS and deradicalization programs here start from the false premise that there is a wide gap between a moderate and extremist Islam. Smiling news anchors daily recite new stories about a teenager from Kentucky, Boston or Manchester getting “radicalized” and joining ISIS to the bafflement of his parents, mosque and community.

And who is to blame for all this mysterious radicalization? It’s not the parents. It certainly can’t be the moderate local mosque with its stock of Jihadist CDs and DVDs being dispensed from under the table.

The attorney for the family of Usaama Rahim, the Muslim terrorist who plotted to behead Pamela Geller, claims that his radicalization came as a “complete shock” to them.

It must have come as a truly great shock to his brother Imam Ibrahim Rahim who claimed that his brother was shot in the back and that the Garland cartoon attack had been staged by the government.

It must have come as an even bigger shock to Imam Abdullah Faaruuq, the Imam linked to Usaama Rahim and his fellow terrorist conspirators, as well as the Tsarnaev brothers, who had urged Muslims to “grab onto the gun and the sword.” The culturally insensitive truth about Islamic ‘radicalization’ is that it is incremental.

There is no peaceful Islam. Instead of two sharply divided groups, peaceful Islam and extremist Islam, there is a spectrum of acceptable terrorism.

Muslim institutions have different places on that spectrum depending on their allegiances and tactics, but the process of radicalization is rarely a sharp break from the past for any except converts to Islam.

The latest tragic victim of radicalization is Munther Omar Saleh; a Muslim man living in New York City who allegedly plotted to use a Tsarnaev-style pressure cooker bomb in a major landmark such as the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building. Saleh claimed to be following orders from ISIS.

Media coverage of the Saleh arrest drags out the old clichés about how unexpected this sudden radicalization was, but what appears to be his father’s social media account shows support for Hamas.

Likewise one of Usaama Rahim’s fellow mosque attendees said that Rahim and another conspirator had initially followed the “teachings of the Muslim Brotherhood” but that he had been forced to cut ties with them when they moved past the Brotherhood and became “extreme”.

Despite the media’s insistence on describing the Muslim Brotherhood as a moderate organization, it has multiple terrorist arms, including Hamas, and its views on non-Muslims run the gamut from the violent to the genocidal.

A year after Obama’s Cairo speech and his outreach to the Muslim Brotherhood, its Supreme Guide announced that the United States will soon be destroyed, urged violent terrorist attacks against the United States and “raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life.”

Despite this, Obama continued backing the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power across the region.

There are distinctions between the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda, but the latter is a splinter group of the former. Al Qaeda’s current leader came out of the Muslim Brotherhood. A move from one to the other is a minor transition between two groups that have far more in common than their differences.

And since the Brotherhood controls much of the Islamic infrastructure in the United States, the idea that Munther Omar Saleh or Usaama Rahim became radicalized because they went from a Jihadist group that takes the long view in the struggle against the infidel, putting political structures into place to make a violent struggle tactically feasible, to a Jihadist group that focuses more on short term violence, is silly.

Radicalization isn’t transformational; it’s incremental.

It’s the Pakistani kid down the block deciding that instead of joining the Muslim Students Association and then CAIR to build Islamist political structures in America, he should just cut to the chase and kill a few cops to begin taking over America now. Radicalization is the moderate Imam who stops putting on an act for PBS and the local politicians and moves to Yemen where he openly recruits terrorists to attack America instead of doing it covertly at his mosque in Virginia.

Radicalization is the teenage Muslim girl who forgets about marrying her Egyptian third cousin and bringing him and his fifty relatives to America and goes to join ISIS as a Caliphate brood mare instead.

It’s not pacifism giving way to violence. Instead it’s an impatient shift from tactical actions meant to eventually make Islam supreme in America over many generations to immediate bloody gratification. ISIS is promising the apocalypse now. No more waiting. No more lying. You can have it tomorrow.

Radicalization does not go from zero to sixty. It speeds up from sixty to seventy-five.

It builds on elements that are already there in the mosque and the household. The term “extremism” implicitly admits that what we are talking about is not a complete transformation, but the logical extension of existing Islamic beliefs.
