Obama’s Next Step: Government Task Force For ‘New Americans’

 

 

 

Fears that President Obama would attempt to assimilate immigrant communities into a new America that entrenches multiculturalism and acceptance of large government—in other words, an America that differs in important ways from the country we once knew—are being sadly confirmed.

  The White House on Friday quickly followed the president’s controversial executive order by announcing the formation of a task force that in fact attempts to do just that.

  The presidential memorandum states:

  Our success as a Nation of immigrants is rooted in our ongoing commitment to welcoming and integrating newcomers into the fabric of our country. It is important that we develop a Federal immigrant integration strategy that is innovative and competitive with those of other industrialized nations and supports mechanisms to ensure that our Nation’s diverse people are contributing to society to their fullest potential.

  Therefore, I am establishing a White House Task Force on New Americans, an interagency effort to identify and support State and local efforts at integration that are working and to consider how to expand and replicate successful models. The Task Force, which will engage with community, business, and faith leaders, as well as State and local elected officials, will help determine additional steps the Federal Government can take to ensure its programs and policies are serving diverse communities that include new Americans.

  The insistence on diversity is not happenstance. The president clearly does not seek E Pluribus Unum, but to entrench the balkanized America and the “minority vs. majority” discourse that has governed the nation’s thinking since the 1970s.”

Suspect In Attack On 2 Soldiers In Quebec ‘Had Become Radicalized’

 

 

 

 

 

” The man who allegedly struck two soldiers with his car in Quebec and was killed after a police chase had become “radicalized” and was known to federal authorities, the Prime Minister’s Office said Monday.

  The 25-year-old hit-and-run suspect was shot after a police chase Monday in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, located about 50 kilometres southeast of Montreal.

  Before the chase ensued, he allegedly struck two members of the Canadian Armed Forces, who were on foot in a strip mall parking lot. One of the soldiers is now in critical condition, while the other suffered minor injuries.

CTV News has confirmed that the suspect’s name is Martin Rouleau.”

 

 

    While the CTV News article above is highly sanitized , in the media’s typical PC fashion , Pamela Geller offers a much more thorough picture of the suspect , complete with links to his Facebook page .

 

 

” Earlier today, Canadian Muslim Ahmad Rouleau ran down two Canadian Forces Members and said he was acting “In the name of Allah.Ahmad tried to stab the police who arrived at the scene of the vehicular jihad.

  The Facebook page of the Muslim who ran down Canadian soldiers today is all…… Islam. It looks remarkably like that of the Oklahoma Muslim who beheaded co-worker Collen Hufford.

  What’s really frightening is that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) recently produced an anti-terror handbook (endorsed by the U.S. State Department, no less) in collaboration with terror-tied National Council of Canadian Muslim (CAIR-Canada). “

 

 

    Readers will note that the CTV report never uses the word Muslim to describe the suspect even though a visit to his Facebook page could lead to no other conclusions . Read both reports and compare who is more truthful in their reporting .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These Charts Show How Gender Bias May Have Played A Role In The White House Secret Service Breaches

 

 

SS Double Standards

 

 

 

” Even MSNBC and their Democratic guests agreed: Julia Pierson was not the right person for the job, and her gender may have played a bigger role than it should have in getting her hired.

  But looking past the former Secret Service director, who resigned on Wednesday, and examining the people who make up the Secret Service may give even more insight to whether political correctness was too overzealous within the organization.

  Reportedly, White House intruder Omar Gonzalez “overpowered” the agent who was stationed just inside the front White House door, The New York Times reports.

  The NY Times story initially included the fact that that agent was a “female,” but, as the Weekly Standard reports, that fact was later edited and omitted.

  And it might now be clear why.

  The Secret Service’s own web site includes a flier detailing the physical standards that its agents must meet to be eligible for the service – but these charts reveal a surprising tidbit of information: women and men doing the same job are not held to the same standards of physical fitness. “

Windows 9

 

 

” Leaked Windows 9 screenshots have surfaced previously, but this time we’re getting a closer look at how the desktop is transforming in the future release of Windows. German sites Computer Base and WinFuture have obtained 20 photos of what appears to be the “Windows Technical Preview,” which is expected to be made available later this month or in early October. The screenshots, from a Windows build provided to close Microsoft partners, provide an even closer look at the new Start Menu, and some obvious changes to the Windows taskbar.”

Islamophobia? Hell Yes!

 

 

” On a recent family trip to Santa Monica, an evening walk on the Third Avenue Promenade felt as if we had been dropped into a Middle Eastern country.  90% of the people strolling down the bustling walkways and lounging at the cafes were Muslim. Women were dressed in either burqas, niqabs, or hijabs and the few younger women who were not, were speaking Arabic.

  This experience followed a trip to Maine where we found ourselves encountering an unusually large number of Muslims on the streets of several cities and learned of the mini-Dearborn into which the Lewiston/Auburn area had been transformed.

  Portland almost resembled midtown Manhattan where the Muslim population has been growing exponentially over the past several years.

  The left commands us to believe that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance.  And yet, despite the fact that we have welcomed these vast Muslim communities into our country with open arms, the reality is something quite different. After I left Santa Monica I recalled that a Pakistani hotel owner there was sued for throwing all of the Jews out of her hotel. She told her staff to “Get the [expletive deleted] Jews out of my pool” and that “no one who was identifiable as Jewish was so much as ‘allowed to dip their feet in the water.’”

  Dennis Prager’s recent column discussed a Muslim woman in Winooski, Vermont whose complaint over the “offensive” use of the word bacon in an advertisement led to the restaurant taking down the ad.  Pointing out that religious Jews who do not eat pork have never even considered advertising bacon as offensive, Prager wrote:

  The woman who wrote this totalitarian drivel is the worst combination of fake victimhood, political correctness (which itself is a PC euphemism for “that which offends the left”), and Muslims who seek to impose sharia law on non-Muslims….

  Would that the intolerance end there, perhaps I would feel safe with all of the hijabs that are appearing across America. But this summer we were treated to ugly pro-Hamas protests across the country.   From San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle to Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, Muslims screamed “Death to Israel,” called for a third intifada, chanted “Jews go back to the ovens,” and compared Israel to Nazis.  And two weeks ago on NYC’s Upper East Side, people in cars flying Palestinian flags yelling anti-Jewish statements attacked a Jewish couple. “

Meet The Poster Child For ‘White Privilege’ – Then Have Your Mind Blown

 

 

tal fortgang

 

 

” He’s 20, he’s white, and he’s a freshman at Princeton University.

  According to the ethnic and feminist studies college students and professors who frequently and vehemently complain that this country is steeped in racism and sexism and is only fair and just and equal for white, heterosexual males – he is the poster child for so-called “White Privilege.”

  His name is Tal Fortgang, and just eight months into his Ivy League experience, he’s been told on numerous occasions to “check his privilege” – a phrase that has taken social media social justice campaigning by storm.

   It is meant to remind white, heterosexual males that they have it so good because they’re white, heterosexual males. They haven’t faced tough times, they don’t know what it’s like to be judged by the color of their skin.

  Oh, but they do.

  Those sick of being labeled are the very same ones doing it to others, and Tal Fortgang has a powerful message for them:

  There is a phrase that floats around college campuses, Princeton being no exception, that threatens to strike down opinions without regard for their merits, but rather solely on the basis of the person that voiced them. “Check your privilege,” the saying goes, and I have been reprimanded by it several times this year. The phrase, handed down by my moral superiors, descends recklessly, like an Obama-sanctioned drone, and aims laser-like at my pinkish-peach complexion, my maleness, and the nerve I displayed in offering an opinion rooted in a personal Weltanschauung. “Check your privilege,” they tell me in a command that teeters between an imposition to actually explore how I got where I am, and a reminder that I ought to feel personally apologetic because white males seem to pull most of the strings in the world.

  I do not accuse those who “check” me and my perspective of overt racism, although the phrase, which assumes that simply because I belong to a certain ethnic group I should be judged collectively with it, toes that line. But I do condemn them for diminishing everything I have personally accomplished, all the hard work I have done in my life, and for ascribing all the fruit I reap not to the seeds I sow but to some invisible patron saint of white maleness who places it out for me before I even arrive. Furthermore, I condemn them for casting the equal protection clause, indeed the very idea of a meritocracy, as a myth, and for declaring that we are all governed by invisible forces (some would call them “stigmas” or “societal norms”), that our nation runs on racist and sexist conspiracies. Forget “you didn’t build that;” check your privilege and realize that nothing you have accomplished is real.”

‘Man Up,’ ‘Don’t Be A Pussy’ Labeled Offensive Language At Duke University

 

YouDontSayInside

 

 

” A new word-discouragement campaign at Duke University has labeled phrases such as “Man Up,” “That’s So Gay,” and “Don’t Be a Pussy” offensive language that “delegitimizes” homosexuality and oppresses and insults people.

  But as the campaign has gained national popularity, its detractors have bristled at the effort, calling it a politically correct war on words that will stifle free speech and suggesting its true aim is to redefine terms to control public opinion and – ultimately – public policy.

In fact, the “You Don’t Say” campaign creators have admitted as much.

“ Language is a reflection of how we think about others and view the world,” Jay Sullivan, a student leader of the campaign, tells Duke Today. “My goal is to…. help facilitate discussion about how language affects many social issues, from race to gender and sexuality.”

  The campaign consists of a series of black-and-white memes with students posing behind large pledges to avoid so-called offensive language.”

Yes, We Can (Say That)

 

 

” I’ve always been in favor of freedom of expression, but lately I’ve become a free-speech absolutist. It takes all sorts to make a world and I’ve met a lot of them over the years, and I can stand pretty much anything anyone says about anything — until someone says to me, “You can’t say that.” At which point my inclination is to punch his lights out. I do this not just because I’m a violent psychopath with a hair-trigger temper, but to make the important point that in societies where you’re not free to speak your mind — to argue and debate — the only way to express disagreement is through violence.

  But the Shut-up-he-explained Party is making great strides in the free world, too. The Latina actress Maria Conchita Alonso was recently fired from a San Francisco production of The Vagina Monologues because she made the mistake of appearing in a commercial for a Tea Party political candidate. “We really can’t have her in the show,” the producer Eliana Lopez told KPIX-TV. Which would be an Oscar-winning line if she were appearing in a George Clooney movie about blacklisted screenwriters in the 1950s.”

Coca Cola’s Super Bowl Commercial Was A Stealth Push For Amnesty By Its Muslim CEO

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Flashbacks, 2013: Coca Cola’s Muslim CEO Writes Op-Ed Pushing ‘Immigration Reform’ – Huffington Post, Forbes List Coke As Top Amnesty Supporter

  Coca Cola has been on a major amnesty push for at least a year in the hopes that it can obtain cheap labor. And because its CEO Muhtar Kent is a Muslim who was raised in places like Iran and Indonesia, perhaps for even more sinister reasons. Regardless, this push makes it very clear that the Super Bowl ad was 100% political, designed to influence public opinion, propagandizing the people in favor of immigration ahead of the coming amnesty battle in congress. In the military, this is called a PSYOP (psychological operation). Muhtar is engaging in the amnesty war just like Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is. And I’d be curious to know just how much of his salary and Coke’s profits go to Muslim “charities” that are really fronts for terrorist organizations, as most Muslim “charities” are. “

The Age Of Intolerance

 

 

 

” Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, in his career-detonating interview with GQ, gave a rather thoughtful vernacular exegesis of the Bible’s line on sin, while carefully insisting that he and other Christians are obligated to love all sinners and leave it to the Almighty to adjudicate the competing charms of drunkards, fornicators, and homosexuals. Nevertheless, GLAAD — “the gatekeepers of politically correct gayness” as the (gay) novelist Bret Easton Ellis sneered — saw their opportunity and seized it. By taking out TV’s leading cable star, they would teach an important lesson pour encourager les autres — that espousing conventional Christian morality, even off-air, is incompatible with American celebrity.

  Some of my comrades, who really should know better, wonder why, instead of insisting Robertson be defenestrated, GLAAD wouldn’t rather “start a conversation.” But, if you don’t need to, why bother? Most Christian opponents of gay marriage oppose gay marriage; they don’t oppose the right of gays to advocate it. Yet thug groups like GLAAD increasingly oppose the right of Christians even to argue their corner. It’s quicker and more effective to silence them.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Southern Discomfort: U.S. Army Seeks Removal Of Lee,

‘Stonewall’ Jackson Honors

 

 

” The U.S. Army War College , which molds future field generals, has begun discussing whether it should remove its portraits of Confederate generals — including those of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

  Nestled in rural Pennsylvania on the 500-acre Carlisle Barracks, the war college is conducting an inventory of all its paintings and photographs with an eye for rehanging them in historical themes to tell a particular Army story.

  During the inventory, an unidentified official — not the commandant, Maj. Gen. Anthony A. Cucolo III — asked the administration why the college honors two generals who fought against the United States, college spokeswoman Carol Kerr said.

“ I do know at least one person has questioned why we would honor individuals who were enemies of the United States Army,” Ms. Kerr said. “There will be a dialogue when we develop the idea of what do we want the hallway to represent.” “

Police: French Soldier Stabbed In Neck While On Patrol

 

 

 

” A French soldier who was stabbed Saturday on the western outskirts of Paris was targeted because of his military service, France’s defense minister said.

“The aim was to kill the soldier because he was a soldier,” Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told CNN affiliate BFMTV. The attacker wanted “to kill a soldier who is in charge of French security,” he said.

The soldier was stabbed in the neck from behind with either a knife or a box cutter, a Hauts-de-Seine police spokesman said.

The attacker was wearing a robe and appeared to be North African, said Laurent Lefebvre, a spokesman for Syndicat Alliance Police Nationale, a French police union.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Obama Mafia Gets The Private Sector To Do Its Anti-Gun Dirty Work

 

 

 

” The world’s largest industrial company, General Electric, received a very-generous deal in 2009 when the company received $139 billion in taxpayer money under provisions created to keep banks afloat.  Though GE Capital is not classified as a bank, the company was able to secure the money because it owned two small Utah banking institutions.

In short, thanks to the loophole, GE was able to secure $139 billion while not, technically, being a bank. Further, GE was able to avoid the restrictions and stipulations given to banks.

Now, with money in hand, GE Capital is cutting off funding to gun shops as the Obama Administration continues its dying efforts to curtail Second Amendment protections.

Daniel Greenfield of Frontpagemag.com accurately summarized the danger of this unholy alliance:

“What we are seeing is the political consolidation of big business into an arm of government with misappropriated taxpayer money being used to pick winners and losers in the marketplace, with the ‘winners’ then doing the dirty work of the government and acting as its regulatory arm, destroying entire areas of business that the government has yet to be able to destroy on its own.” “

 

 

 

 

 

The Army Caves: Forces Troops To Scrape Bible Verse Off Of Guns

 

 

” The U.S. Military does not build its own weapons. Instead, it purchases them from third party contractors who have proven that they provide the best weapon at the best price. One of these contractors is Trijicon, which manufactures rifle scopes. On these scopes, Trijicon includes what looks like a cryptic code, although it makes perfect sense to practicing Christians: JN8:12 and 2COR4:6. In other words, John 8:12 and Second Corinthians 4:6. Both passages refer to Jesus as a light in the darkness; neither advocates a crusading religious fervor.

Despite the fact that the notations matter only to those who care, have no meaning to those who don’t, and are too cryptic to count as proselytizing, Muslims have been complaining about that those thirteen characters for years. They challenged the same markings when they were discovered in 2010 on Army and Marine equipment.” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Australian Judge Finds Muslim “Cultural Differences” Valid Excuse for Rape

 

 

 

 

 

” Bit by bit, Western nations are adopting Muslim legal standards on blasphemy and on the treatment of women.

The excuses are manifold. Racism, cultural differences, Islamophobia, relativism… but it all ends the same way, with Western writers, artists and thinkers being censored and Western women being subject to Taliban treatment.

This is how it began.

We’re not just dealing with ignorance of the law. We have Western judges setting out the notion that if a Muslim settler in Europe, America or Australia does not understand the concept that women can refuse sexual contact, that this is a mitigating circumstance.

Ms Dalziel said Esmatullah Sharifi claimed he did not have a great understanding of sexual mores in Australia but Judge Mark Dean disagreed.

“These are acts of violence,” the judge said. “Serious acts of violence against women, nothing to do with sexual mores. They’re brutal acts of violence.”

But they do. In Muslim sexual mores, serious acts of violence being committed against women are not a problem because the women do not belong to themselves. They belong to their family.”

 

 

 

Comcast Cable Bans All Firearm, Ammunition Advertisers

Cox already had a ban similar to the one Comcast has now instituted and Time Warner Cable announced in January that it was banning “ads showing semi-automatic weapons and guns pointed at people.” ‘

 

 

 

 

Massachusetts Principal Calls Off Honors Night Because It Could Be ‘Devastating’ To Students Who Missed Mark

 

 

 

 

” MyFoxBoston.com reports that David Fabrizio, principal of Ipswich Middle School, notified parents last week of his plan to eliminate the event.

“The Honors Night, which can be a great sense of pride for the recipients’ families, can also be devastating to a child who has worked extremely hard in a difficult class but who, despite growth, has not been able to maintain a high grade-point average,” Fabrizio penned in his first letter to parents, the station reported.

Fabrizio also said he decided to make the change because academic success can be influenced by the amount of support a student  receives at home and not all students receive the same level of emotional and academic support at home.”

 

 

 

 

 

Maryland School District Outlaws Hugging, Homemade Food, Pushing Kids On Swings

 

 

”  The Old Line State — where kids have been suspended for making guns with their fingers and with toaster pastries — now boasts a school district that prohibits hugging and homemade food in public elementary schools for anyone except a parent’s own children.

Parents must also register to enter the playground and they can’t push anyone except their own kids on the swings.

The Enterprise, a member of Southern Maryland Newspapershas the story.

Officials with St. Mary’s County Public Schools say the new rules are necessary to provide a generally safe environment.

A committee composed of parents and elementary school principals created the regulations after a handful of meetings last year. Other new rules include a ban on ad-hoc parent-teacher conferences. The distribution of birthday invitations on school grounds is also now verboten.

“We’re not violating anybody’s rights,” Superintendent Michael Martirano told The Enterprise.”

Muslim Gang-Rapes Across Europe Under-Reported In Press

 

 

 

” High profile-gang rapes in India have been in the headlines since December. The phenomenon is growing across Europe too, but tends to be under reported due to the high incidence of Muslim perpetrators which makes it politically incorrect to mention.

In December 2011 a Swedish mother-of-two was subjected to a brutal gang-rape by 12 Afghan immigrants in a refugee camp in Mariannelund. Reports stated “The rape was oral, anal and vaginal sometimes with three rapists inside her at the same time while everybody was cheering and clapping. The gruesome rape marathon lasted for 7 hours. 11 suspect may have been involved taking turns while drinking and getting high on drugs. The asylum seekers were cheering and clapping their hands during the rape marathon while calling the victim “whore” and “slut”.”

The main perpetrator Rafi Bahaduri, 25, had already committed four other rapes in Sweden. The case is not unique. There is a growing trend of gang-rapes perpetrated against white women by Muslim rapists.

In the U.K. there has been a steady stream of cases where primarily under- privileged young English girls have been targeted, groomed and raped by gangs of what the British press euphemistically refers to as Asian men. However, the published names of the perpetrators are primarily of Pakistan and Afghanistan origin when the gang rapists appear in court. The Asian gangs do not contain rapists from China, Japan, and the Philippines.

Cases have been reported in Rochdale, Rotherham, Derby, Bradford, Blackpool – the list goes on. An article regarding the phenomenon in Standpoint notes: “According to some of the mothers, a fear of being branded racist makes many of the police and social services reluctant to investigate the crimes as organised and connected. One mother from Rotherham, whose 14-year-old daughter was groomed into prostitution and multiply raped during a 12-month period, told me that almost every man convicted of these crimes in the north of England is from Pakistan but that the authorities insist that it is not relevant.”

More and more cases are reported across Europe. The following is just a very small sample (some figures indicate 5,000 gang-rapes occur in France alone each year.)
