Nobel Committee Rebukes Michael Mann for falsely claiming he was ‘awarded the Nobel Peace Prize’ — ‘Michael Mann has never been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize’

“Sharia Versus Freedom” Cameo Appearance on Lou Dobb’s Tonight Libya Discussion (10/25/12)

http://www.andrewbostom.org/blog/2012/10/26/sharia-versus-freedom-cameo-appearance-on-lou-dobbs-tonight-libya-discussion-102512/ Last evening’s (10/25/12) Lou Dobb’s Tonight featured a very frank and illuminating analysis of the morally reprehensible Benghazi fiasco by former Ambassador John Bolton, and my colleague, Andrew C. McCarthy. At the end of the candid discussion, my book, Sharia Versus Freedom, made an inadvertent, yet apposite “cameo appearance,” courtesy of Mr. Dobb’s, who […]

And we are none the wiser for it. Not surprisingly, at the height of the campaign season, neither US President Barack Obama nor his Republican challenger Gov. Mitt Romney was interested in revealing his plans for the next four years. But from what was […]


http://www.dianawest.net/Home/tabid/36/EntryId/2294/Obamas-Jihad-Alliance.aspx This Week’s Syndicated Column: A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a column addressing the national scandal that investigation into the security failures and lies surrounding Benghazi-gate must also expose. This even larger scandal concerns the fact that throughout the revolutionary cycle known as Arab Spring, the Obama administration threw in Uncle Sam’s lot […]


http://spectator.org/archives/2012/10/25/obama-knew Did ideological soft spot for Sharia keep U.S government from protecting Benghazi consulate? Obama knew. Say again, Obama knew. So. The question. If what happened in Benghazi wasn’t incompetence — was it ideology? Did Sharia kill Ambassador Chris Stevens, Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, and two Navy SEALs? And is Hillary Clinton’s insistence yesterday […]


http://pjmedia.com/andrewmccarthy/2012/10/26/sharia-killed-ambassador-chris-stevens/ The headline on this post could just be a statement of fact, derived from an obvious truth, albeit one that our willfully blind government refuses to assimilate despite years of anti-American atrocities. Under the supremacist interpretation of sharia — Islam’s totalitarian societal system — that is regnant in the Middle East, non-Muslim Westerners who […]



It’s all about Iran

The Eid el-Adha holiday began Thursday. This is the “Feast of the Sacrifice” during which Muslims make their annual hajj (pilgrimage) to Mecca. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei prepared and aired a televised message to the global flock over which he claims patronage.

As is his wont, Khamenei took the opportunity to infuse his religious sermon with politics and radical ideology. And due to the abundance of current events relevant to the chief mullah and his “congregants,” he had more to stew and spew about than usual.

Let us not forget that Tehran is monitoring the lead-up to the U.S. presidential election with as much nail-biting anxiety as the rest of us. Tehran is not happy about the prospect of a changing of the guard in Washington on November 6. Indeed, if there’s one thing the Islamic republic knows, it is that U.S. President Barack Obama has been the best person to have in the White House since Jimmy Carter. While Carter sat by and let Iran fall into the hands of the mullahs in 1979, Obama has stood at attention as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s regime marches full-force forward with its nuclear program.

This is not to say that Khamenei has developed any fondness for the United States during the past four years. On the contrary, just as his predecessor Ayatollah Khomeini loathed Carter for being both American and weak, so, too, does Khamenei harbor nothing but hatred and contempt for Obama. This is particularly the case as he watches the U.S. president squirm over getting caught lying about his response to last month’s murder of four Americans, among them the ambassador, at the consulate in Benghazi on the anniversary of September 11. It is precisely Obama’s kind of pathetic posturing on behalf of the Islamic world, however, that serves Khamenei’s interests.

That is why he fears a Mitt Romney victory. He figures that the Republican contender would be more likely to get in the way of his grand plan for the Middle East (and beyond, eventually). He also worries that a Romney administration would be less inclined than the incumbent crew to put “daylight” between America and Israel. Such a possibility spells danger for him and his nukes. It also bodes ill for his alliances with the Arab Spring radicals whom he already controls, and those — such as in Syria —whom he is trying to defeat.


Gallup: Obama loses support from most groups
Friday, October 26, 2012
Given the relatively similar demographic composition of the 2012 and 2008 electorates, the election’s outcome may hinge more on how groups vote rather than to what extent they will vote. And most groups are currently less likely to support Obama now than they were in 2008. Read more…
