Diana West: “The Victors in America Were the Communists”

In her latest book, The Red Thread: A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy, Diana West investigates the Communist influences on various players in the “SpyGate” and “Russian collusion” conspiracies that aimed to take down Donald Trump. The focus on the Red Thread has reopened discussion of the issues discussed in her earlier book, American Betrayal, which caused so much controversy back in 2013 by daring to question the hagiography surrounding Saint FDR.

Concerning the video below, Ms. West says:

There is something so timely about this 2013 interview with Erick Stakelbeck, an excellent interviewer, that I decided to repost it. The topic is my then-new book American Betrayal, but the conversation is all about the introduction of socialism and subversion into the US government, which soon flourished as “the Swamp.”

Gavin Boby: Islam in England

Gavin Boby is an English lawyer who is best-known for his “Mosquebusters” operation, which has racked up numerous successes in preventing the construction of mosques by using legal appeals before planning commissions.

In the following series of four videos, Mr. Boby discusses the current state of England under the Islamic onslaught. I wholeheartedly agree with his basic tenet: “Things that cannot continue forever, will not continue forever.” When the change finally comes it will be dramatic and sudden, but neither he nor I is willing to predict exactly when it will happen. The situation is too stochastic to be predictable.

I’ve put videos 2-4 below the fold, so that our main page will not load so slowly for people who have bandwidth issues. People like us, for example.

The Lamentable Shortcomings of Some English Judges and Senior Lawyers

What do English judges do when issues involving Islam and sharia appear in their courtrooms? Why, they remain blissfully unaware, of course, as Michael Copeland explains in his latest essay.

The Lamentable Shortcomings of Some English Judges and Senior Lawyers

by Michael Copeland

English judges have shown themselves to be lamentably lacking in knowledge of Islam. They confidently make statements which can easily be shown to be erroneous. What they express are assumptions, not grounded in scholarship. Recent cases demonstrate this assertion.

Mr. Justice Sweeney

Mr. Justice Sweeney presided over the trial in 2014 of the killers of Lee Rigby. One of them was Mujaahid Abu Hamza, formerly Michael Adebolajo, from Nigeria. He had converted to Islam and had been mentored and trained by Anjem Choudary. A diligent student of Islam, he had prepared from the Koran a list of some thirty-one Islamic scriptural authorisations and commands for the killing of non-muslims, which he handed to a passer-by after the gruesome murder.

The Koran has a very significant status: its text, all of it, forms part of Islamic law. No-one may alter any part of it: “None may change his words” (18:27). No-one may disregard any part of it. One who denies any verse instantly ceases to be a muslim and has to be killed as an apostate (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, o8.7(7)). The killing can be performed vigilante-style by anyone, and is penalty-free “since it is killing someone who deserves to die” (o8.4). Control is total: there is no room for conscientious objection.

“It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision” (K. 33:36)

The doctrines set out in the texts are neither negotiable nor optional. Muslims are not permitted to choose: they are instructed. Dr. Salah al-Sawy, the Secretary-General of the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America, issued a ruling, or fatwa, citing the above verse:

For things which have been stipulated in the texts of Islam, the Ummah [Muslim community] possesses no power except to acknowledge and obey.

The teachings of the Koran, advises imam Ahmed Saad of North London Central Mosque, “are universal and trans-time”: they are promoted as “valid from eternity to eternity”, explains Sam Solomon, former Professor of Sharia Law. Non-muslims, kafirs, are “unclean” (9:28), “the vilest of beasts” (8:22), as “apes and pigs” (5:60), “the most despicable” (98:6). They are to be regarded with “enmity and hatred forever” (60:4). “Kill them wherever you find them” commands the Koran (2:191, 9:5). Instruction after instruction in the Koran mandates violence against kafirs.

Ali Gomaa, Grand Mufti of Egypt, the highest Sunni Muslim religious authority in the world, makes the obligation clear:

Muslims must kill non-believers wherever they are unless they convert to Islam.

Lee Rigby’s killer explained to the passer-by who recorded him on a video:

We are forced by the Koran, in Sura At-Tawba…

Sura At-Tawba is Chapter Nine of the Koran. It does, indeed, at verse 5, command muslims “Kill the idolaters (“mushrikun’) wherever you find them”. “Idolaters” in Islam include Christians, because Islam holds, erroneously, that they worship the Cross. The Koran, it needs to be explained, is not arranged in chronological order. Chapter Nine is, in fact, the latest complete chapter. As such, it has a potent distinction under Islam’s doctrine of “abrogation”. It overrides and “abrogates” all the earlier peaceful verses. It is the final word.

All this was clear to Mujaahid Abu Hamza. Evidently, though, none of it was known to Judge Sweeney. Judges, in fairness, are qualified in English law. No part of their training includes Sharia law, the rules of Islam. The judge evidently shared the widely held, though erroneous, English fair play/goodwill assumption that Islam is benign, a Religion of Peace. He exposed his lack of knowledge in what he said to the defendants:

You each converted to Islam some years ago. Thereafter you were radicalised and each became an extremist — espousing a cause and views which, as has been said elsewhere, are a betrayal of Islam and of the peaceful Muslim communities who give so much to our country.

At that point the two defendants howled and shouted in protest, knowing, as they did and the judge did not, that what they had done was not a betrayal at all, but a dutiful fulfilment of Islam’s commands. They were conducted out of the court room. Of course, this enabled the media to represent them as wild and fanatical misunderstanders, thus prolonging the nation’s ignorance.

Mr. Justice Haddon-Cave

Mr. Justice Haddon-Cave presided over the trial of the young London Tube jihadi, whose bomb fortunately malfunctioned at Parsons Green Station, burning strongly but not exploding. Sentencing him, the judge said:

You’ll have plenty of time to study the Koran in prison…the Koran is a book of peace.

Robert Spencer wrote:

Has Mr Justice Haddon-Cave ever actually read the Qur’an? Almost certainly not; otherwise he wouldn’t have gone on record with this spectacularly asinine and counterfactual statement.

The Koran is no book of peace. Voltaire assessed it scathingly:

[It] teaches fear, hatred, contempt for others. Murder as a legitimate means of spreading and maintaining this devil’s doctrine. It denigrates women, divides people into classes and demands blood and more blood.

Gladstone held up a copy in the House of Commons and told Members:

Islamic Masochism in Bonn

The following video shows a mourning ceremony performed by Muslims on the street in the German city of Bonn. Three identifying features tell you they are most likely Shi’ites, rather than Sunnis:

1.   The black outfits — those are typically Shia. Sunnis normally wear white when they are expressing their religious devotion.
2.   The self-harm ritual, which is very similar to the one performed by Shi’ites at the Ashura festival every year, when they mourn the death of Hussein, the grandson of Mohammed who founded the Shia sect when he was martyred for refusing to submit to what eventually became the Sunni sect. Shi’ites celebrate Ashura by cutting themselves extensively with knives or flails.
3.   The fact that these men take off their shirts in public, which is forbidden under Sunni Islam. As you may remember, in some of the Islamic State’s snuff videos the bare chests of male corpses were pixilated out. A Sunni man is required to cover himself from neck to ankles; to expose any of the flesh in between is haram.

Mark Steyn: “If the alternative is surrendering our liberty over death threats, to hell with that!”

This morning Mark Steyn testified as a witness at a hearing on “online hate” held in the Canadian House of Commons by the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights. As you might expect, the occasion was one in which sanctimonious progressive pols hectored, badgered, bullied, and otherwise coerced witnesses to fall in line with Party doctrine on immigration, Multiculturalism, Islam, etc.

Mr. Steyn, however, refused to be bullied. He repaid his tormentors in kind, and threw in extra invective just for them.

He was superb. The next time I run into him I’ll say, “Steyn, you magnificent bastard! I heard your testimony.”

No video was allowed at the committee hearing (see Vlad Tepes’ post below for more on that), so the video below is audio-only, to which photographs have been added.

Before you watch it, a word on the cast of characters: Besides the witnesses, committee members are present in the hearing room. However, since I can’t see their faces, I can’t identify any of them. I assume the committee chair, Anthony Housefather, is one of those asking the questions.

Below is a list of committee members, taken from Wikipedia:

Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights

Anthony Housefather, Chair (Liberal)
Randy Boissonnault (Liberal)
Ali Ehsassi (Liberal)
Colin Fraser (Liberal)
Iqra Khalid (Liberal)
Ron McKinnon (Liberal)
Arif Virani, Parliamentary Secretary (Liberal)
Michael Cooper, Vice-Chair (Conservative)
Michael Barrett (Conservative)
David MacKenzie (Conservative)
Tracey Ramsey (New Democratic)

You can also find a list of members on the House of Commons website.

The “Mr. Garrison” mentioned in the transcript is Randall Garrison, an MP for the New Democratic Party, who for some unexplained reason was allowed to ask questions, even though he’s not a member of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights (he sits on the Defence Committee).

The article by Mark Steyn referenced in one of the questions is “The Future Belongs to Islam”, which was published by Maclean’s on October 20, 2006.

I transcribed and timed this four-minute excerpt, and Vlad Tepes was kind enough to subtitle it:

Below is Vlad’s take on Mr. Steyn’s appearance before the Star Chamber parliamentary committee:

Short segment of parliamentary committee badgering Mark Steyn on ‘hate speech’

This morning an odious procedure took place in Canada’s increasingly Soviet-like parliamentary committee on ‘hate speech’, where three worthy witnesses, Lindsay Shepherd, John Robson, and Mark Steyn, defended freedom of speech, which is to say they are against the Trudeau government’s proposition that Section 13 of the Hate Speech Act be reinstituted into the criminal code of Canada.

A reporter from RAIR Foundation, at the hearings this morning, explained to me that had they committed an actual crime and been on trial for it, their lawyer, and quite probably the judge, would never have allowed the defendant to be treated the way these volunteer witnesses for freedom had been treated.

Before you watch the video, it may help you to understand the intentions and fairness of this committee to know two things.

1.   The Committee voted before this started not to televise the video of it. So there is only audio of it. We can only guess as to why they chose not to broadcast video, as it was a “non-debatable motion” not to broadcast to which most agreed not to broadcast, and one abstained.
2.   They passed another odd motion: not to name the New Zealand shooter and not to quote from his manifesto, even though it was irrelevant to this hearing. However it does relate to an event last week where a conservative MP used facts from the manifesto to counter a false claim, and for which he was immediately reprimanded. This second motion, as I see it, is Orwell’s last prediction. Loosely quoting: “The future is a boot on humanity’s face for pretty much all eternity”.

They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha Ha!

The urge to create the above image was prompted by the latest of uncountably many incidents in which a Muslim perpetrator of an atrocity was identified as having mental problems. In this particular case, it was a Tunisian man in Sweden who was described as having “psychological problems” after he stabbed an elderly Jewish woman and then fled the country.

The general rule seems to be this: If (1) there is a single perpetrator acting alone, and (2) his victims are unrelated to him and not among his acquaintances, then he has “psychological problems”. The incidence of the application of this rule by the media seems to be approaching 100%. When was the last time you read a news report about a “lone wolf” mujahid where he was not described as “having a history of psychological problems”, or words to that effect?

Contrast this practice with the immediate and routine description (often without evidence) of any white non-Muslim who commits an atrocity as a “racist”, a “Trump supporter”, a “white supremacist”, a “right-wing extremist”, etc. In other words, the motive for the deed is always described in ideological terms. But if the perpetrator is Muslim, the initially assigned motive is never ideological — as if adherence to Islam were not in fact evidence of adherence to an extreme political ideology.

Mind you, that doesn’t make the description wrong. Devout adherence to Islam is quite clearly a form of mental illness. Either people with mental problems are drawn to Islam, or being exposed to Islamic doctrine induces mental illness. Or both.

A Little Bit of Tunisia in Sweden

The following report was published earlier at Fousesquawk in a slightly different form.

Tunisian Man Reportedly Charged With Knife Attack on Jewish Woman in Sweden

by Fousesquawk

Hat tip JC, Fria Tider and Nyheter Idag

Back in May, a Jewish woman in her 60s was severely stabbed in the Swedish town of Helsingborg. A suspect, not further identified, was quickly arrested in Denmark, where he had allegedly fled after the attack. At the time, the public was assured that this was not a hate crime and had nothing to do with religion.

Now it is being reported that the man who is charged with the crime is of Tunisian origin. The article below from Fria Tider has been translated by Fousesquawk.

Tunisian Behind Knife Attack Against Jewish Woman

June 3, 2019

Domestic: A 30-year-old man of Tunisian origin has now been charged for the brutal knife attack against an older woman in Helsingborg. The woman belonged to the Jewish congregation.

It was in the middle of May that the world’s critical attention was turned toward Sweden after a woman in her 60s belonging to the Jewish congregation was severely stabbed in Helsingborg.

The act occurred in the morning when the woman was on her way to work.

Within a day, the police seized a suspected perpetrator in Denmark, but they did not want to release any details about the man.

The Israeli media, however, who were interested in the case the same day because of the woman’s Jewish affiliation, quickly published information that the suspect was a Muslim man.

The information came from the Israeli Foreign Ministry and also said that the suspect was previously known to the Swedish police.

Today, a man in his 30s has been charged for the brutal knife attack.

Assassination in Kassel

A local political leader for Angela Merkel’s CDU in the city of Kassel in Hesse was shot dead over the weekend. Walter Lübcke was apparently a victim of assassination.

Ned Kelly, who tipped us to the incident, included this brief background summary

A German politician, a member of Angela Merkel’s CDU, who told critics of her illegal mass immigration policy they “can leave Germany if they don’t like it”, was found shot dead in his garden over the weekend (head shot). The police are puzzled about the motive.

The video below shows the meeting at which Mr. Lübcke invited those who disagreed with him to leave the country. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Below are excerpts from an article in the English-language service of Deutsche Welle about the death of Walter Lübcke:

German district president found dead with gunshot wound — report

Walter Lübcke was discovered in his garden with a gunshot wound to his head, according to a local media report. Police said there was no indication of suicide and that they were looking for a perpetrator.

The president of the regional council of the central German city of Kassel was found dead in his garden early Sunday morning.

A spokesman for Walter Lübcke’s party, the conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU), confirmed the 65-year-old’s death late on Sunday.

Regional news outlet HNA reported that Lübcke had been found with a bullet wound to his head and that police had found no weapon at the scene.

[…]

The CDU described the Lübcke as a “bridge builder” who never shied away from “telling it as it is.”

Gaza Meddling in Swedish Politics

The following report was published earlier at Fousesquawk in a slightly different form.

Gaza Meddling in Swedish Politics

by Fousesquawk

The article below by Tobias Petersson in Katerina Magasin, a Swedish site, describes how Palestinian activists in Gaza are meddling in Swedish politics on behalf of those Swedish politicians who support their cause, namely Social Security Minister Annika Strandhäll and Foreign Minister Margot Wallström.

Translation by Fousesquawk.

Foreign Influence Campaign for Strandhäll Driven by Anti-Semitic Activist Group

Now Gaza is involving itself in (the fact that) a Swedish opposition party has submitted a declaration of mistrust against Social Security Minister Annika Strandhäll. It is the activist group Ihbid Electronic Army which supports Strandhäll. Ihbid Electronic Army is a Palestinian propaganda network in Gaza which has launched a campaign for the Social Democrats on Facebook and Twitter. This is revealed by Tobias Petersson, an opinion writer against violent extremism and anti-Semitism.

That is what the activist group has written in Arabic on its Facebook page with 35,000 followers. “Social (Security) Minister Annika Strandhäll is being subjected to attempts to remove her by the right alliance and pro-Zionist parties. She is known for her positions in support of the Palestinian cause. She and her party had the courage to make the decision to recognize the Palestinian state, which made Sweden the first European country to do so.”

The activist group has spammed a Facebook post from Parliament member Anders Österberg (S) in support of Annika Strandhäll. On their Facebook page, Ihbid Electronic Army urges its activists to write positive comments in the comment field on Österberg’s post for Strandhäll. “What a wonderful person and wonderful minister!” And “You should fight back and be strong!” people are asked to write to Strandhäll. Österberg’s contributions have received thousands of comments, mostly from the activists of the Palestinian activist group. Currently, Österberg’s Facebook page has been removed or inactivated.

The activists in Gaza have also released a video in Arabic with English text where they accuse Israel of acting like the Nazis in Nazi Germany. To compare Israel’s current policy with the Nazis is anti-Semitic, according to the IHRA’s working definition of anti-Semitism.

This weekend, the “Ihbid Electronic Army” also tried to influence the EU election by urging its Palestinian activists to spam Foreign Minister Margot Wallström’s Facebook page with positive messages. Unfortunately, I do not think it is entirely without Social Democratic involvement that this happens.

One Man, One Border

The mandate for a multicultural society necessitates the removal (or at least the neglect of) national borders. Since citizens are no longer protected at the national level, they must protect themselves at the individual level — creating, as it were, tiny borders around themselves by various means. Women in particular must take unusual measures to guard against rape, sexual assault, and other forms of violence perpetrated by culture enrichers.

In the following video, Vlad Tepes has compiled a useful and thought-provoking selection of these “tiny borders”:

Innocent Oseghale Becomes Guilty Oseghale for the Murder of Pamela Mastropietro

An illegal immigrant from Nigeria named Innocent Oseghale has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder and dismemberment of an 18-year-old girl named Pamela Mastropietro. Mr. Oseghale had stayed on in Italy after his residence permit expired, making his living as part of a gang that smuggled and sold drugs. In January of 2018 he lured Ms. Mastropietro to a rendezvous where she was killed, and then dismembered.

Mr. Oseghale has now been sentenced to life in prison by a panel of Italian judges.

In the following video, the possibility is mentioned that Innocent Oseghale was not the only person involved in the girl’s murder. We’ve posted a number of times in the past about the murder of Pamela Mastropietro; and in the first two posts listed below, Alessandro Meluzzi discusses the theory that Ms. Mastropietro was not just dismembered, but ritually dismembered and partially eaten by a Nigerian mafia gang, which intended to sell some of her body parts on the black market.

The Show Trial

MC uses the upcoming trial of Tommy Robinson as a jumping-off point for a survey of the various tides that are currently at the flood in the affairs of men — at least, the affairs of men of the West.

The Show Trial

by MC

So the TOMMY show trial goes to a new episode in true Roland Freisler style, with the pseudo-fascist fuchsia pink ‘Conservative’ government making it all up as they go along, aided by a justice system who have lost sight of the need to be independent and to serve, all in the effervescent excitement of zealots of a new anti-hatey political religion.

The alt-right of Europe is described as ‘populist’, but I ask: is not populism supposedly at the heart of democracy?

Maybe the critics of ‘populism’ regard the supporters of populism as the great unwashed. Like any other religious fanatics, even political-religious fanatics, they have a name for those who do not believe as they do: Kuffar, yocks, goyim, shixas, left-footers — unbelievers all.

And Tommy Robinson is everything that the leftist pseudo-culture hates, a class system bounder who is clever if unsophisticated, a pleb who can tear holes in the warped opinions of the patricians of both the UK and European establishments.

If the aim is to go back to feudalism, then Tommy must be shut up. He cannot be allowed to embarrass his would-be betters — you know, those who believe that they KNOW best, and are thus self-entitled to inflict their perverted religion(s) on everyone else.

At the centre of Judaism and Christianity is the idea the each of us is individually accountable for our actions at the last judgement, but in this (new?) religion, one is judged at the whim of the reigning power-broker.

At the centre of Judaism and Christianity is a Law which applies to all, great and small. At the centre of this (new?) religion is a flexible opinion to which not only must one be seen to adhere, but for which one must also keep up with the changes as dictated by the hierarchy (to whom the laws don’t apply in the same way: “do as I say not as I do”).

Three little women now dominate the US Left. one is a poor little rich girl, another is a 9/11 apologist, and the other is an overt anti-Semite. These three curiosities, all from failed backgrounds, have one thing in common: they hold a virulent hatred for the white male. So “double, double toil and trouble.”

The white male built the USA as we currently know it, ably supported by the white female. The foundations of the USA are overwhelmingly white and overwhelmingly Judeo-Christian, and you cannot remodel the foundations of a building without seriously undermining any superstructure built upon it.

It is naïve to believe that the future of the USA (or any other Western country for that matter) can be ethnically re-engineered to conform to a new religious mythology of multicultural diversity.

The Religion of Peace has been making war against the unbeliever for 1400 years. Islam is the same now as it was yesterday, is today and will be forever. To believe that it has suddenly reformed is stupid in the extreme, and to try to lurve it into acquiescence is tantamount to doing the same thing time and time again and expecting a different result.

Geert Wilders Blocked on Twitter

Twitter uses digital totalitarianism yet again to enforce sharia in the Netherlands:

Dutch anti-Islam lawmaker Wilders says Twitter blocks his account

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Dutch far-right politician and anti-Islam campaigner Geert Wilders said on Friday that Twitter had temporarily blocked his account following remarks he made about a political rival.

Wilders, who cannot easily appear in public due to threats against him by Islamists, relies heavily on Twitter to communicate with his supporters. He has 811,000 followers, second only to Prime Minister Mark Rutte among Dutch politicians.

“Twitter often tolerates death threats against me, but not a factual tweet by me about a colleague. Madness!” he said in a statement.

Twitter could not immediately be reached for comment. A spokesman for Wilders’ Freedom Party sent a screenshot of his account showing the ban, which was due to expire in around eight hours.

The tweet that led to Wilders’ block referred to D-66, a progressive center-left party as “suckers… who import ever more Islam and then weep crocodile tears over the consequences, such as honor killings.”

Wilders is currently appealing a 2016 conviction for inciting discrimination for an incident in which he led followers in chanting they wanted “fewer! fewer! fewer” Moroccans in the Netherlands.
