RIP Jack Bruce

After the sad news today of Jack Bruce's passing, I thought it might be worth putting up this magnificent documentary of Ginger Baker, a man after the Patriot's heart! Jack Bruce is interviewed for the film, and of course there is quite a bit of his music in the film as well. This is a sad day indeed.



And here's another reminder of Jack Bruce's music, from the Cream, 1966.

Fast and Furious: Judicial Watch Receives Vaughn Index of Withheld Documents

Hat tip to Squid and a big hat tip to Judicial Watch


After two years of legal struggle, the Justice Department, under a judge's order, has turned over a list of documents withheld from Congress in its investigation of the Operation Fast and Furious scandal to Judicial Watch. This is called a Vaughn index, which lists each document withheld and the reason(s) why they are withheld. There are over 15,000 such documents, which President Obama put under his personal protection by asserting executive privilege. Stunningly, it has been revealed that e-mails between Eric Holder and his wife (who is not a government employee) and even his mother have been protected.

Judicial Watch also suggests that the release of these documents may be tied to Holder's announced resignation.

http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2014/10/obama-asserts-fast-furious-executive-privilege-claim-holders-wife-2/


"Fed up with the interminable delay caused Holder’s gamesmanship and stonewalling, JW renewed its request to the Court to allow our transparency lawsuit to continue.  Thankfully, this past July, Judge John D. Bates ended the 16-month delay and ordered the Obama administration to produce a Vaughn index of the alleged “executive privilege” records by October 1. Judge Bates noted that no court has ever “expressly recognized” President Obama’s unprecedented executive privilege claims in the Fast and Furious matter.

Unhappy with having to produce the records prior to the elections, Justice lawyers asked the judge to give them one extra month, until November 3 (the day before Election Day!) to produce the info.  Judge Bates rejected this gambit, suggested that the Holder’s agency did not take court order seriously.  Rather than a month, Judge Bates gave Justice until yesterday to cough up the Vaughn index. Judge Bates issued his smack down on September 23.

Attorney General Eric Holder announced his resignation two days later."


There can be little doubt that if these documents ever see the light of day,  they would reveal:

1 Fast and Furious was cooked up in DOJ Hqs with the involvement of the White House.

2 Eric Holder and his top lieutenants were intimately involved in overseeing the operation.

3 Holder perjured himself before Congress.

4 The Obama White House and top levels of DOJ including Holder have been involved in a massive cover-up.

Now if we only had a Justice Department to investigate it all.

Thoughts on the Week of Terror in Canada




Gary Fouse

As the dust settles in Ottawa after yesterday's terror attack, it appears that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was the lone gunman. Whether he had links to the previous jihadist killed in Canada two days earlier is still being investigated. A couple of things are becoming clear. First, lone wolf jihadists in the West are hearing the call of ISIS to strike however they can in Western countries. The threat of more attacks is real, indeed certain. Pinhead professors like Juan Cole of the University of Michigan can pooh-pooh it and dismiss warnings as racist and Islamophobic all they want. They will eventually be laughed out of  the public discourse by real events.

As for Islamophobia, I would guess that after this week's events, a few million more Canadians have become Islamophobes. They may be fodder for UC Berkeley professor Hatem Bazian's Islamophobia Research and Documentation Center, but the numbers can only grow rather than diminish.

For everyday brings news of another atrocity, whether it be an attack in the West, a car bomb in Iraq, a beheading in Syria, a stoning in Afghanistan, a kidnapping of schoolgirls in Nigeria, a death sentence for blasphemy in Pakistan, or for apostasy in Sudan; it is a daily occurrence.

Once again I repeat my usual disclaimer: I don't condemn all Muslims and neither should you. God forbid that we in the West begin retaliating against innocent Muslim citizens living in the West. Yet it is becoming very tiring to hear apologists like CAIR and MPAC "condemn" the acts of ISIS and al Qaeda while refusing to condemn the acts of Hamas directed towards Israelis. (Yesterday, a Palestinian in Jerusalem aimed his car at a crowd and killed a three-month-old baby, an act that was applauded, if not ordered, by Hamas.) The story line of the CAIR types is that they "condemn all acts of terror against innocent civilians" (a phrase wide enough to drive a truck through according to their definitions.). Yet CAIR's biggest concern is lashing back against any outcry against terror as being Islamophobic. They and others tell us that these acts have nothing to do with Islam-even though they are being carried out in the name of Islam. They tell us how the Qu'ran forbids the taking of human life-side skipping the caveats and the fact that all the peaceful verses they recite are Abrogated by later contradictory verses that urge the Muslim to kill the unbelievers. (I capitalize abrogate because that is an Islamic scholarly principle of interpreting the Qu'ran.) The final major chapter in the Qu'ran is sura 9 which is also its most hateful and violent. It virtually abrogates any verses recorded earlier in time which are contradictory. (The final sura-110- consists of only a couple of sentences.) Yet we are to believe that Islam is a religion of peace.

The apologists and propagandists also tell us that the Prophet Mohammad was a kind and generous man who forgave his enemies. In truth, Mohammad was a warrior and military leader who spread Islam at the point of a sword and oversaw the executions-by beheadings- of captured prisoners and the sale of their wives and daughters into slavery. This is historical fact not slander. What ISIS is doing today is what Mohammad's armies did 1400 years ago. Muslims themselves know it because it is heralded in Islamic texts themselves. Also well chronicled in the Qu'ran and the hadith (the life and traditions of Mohammad) are constant hateful references to Jews and Christians. Those hateful references continue to this day in thousands of mosques around the world even in the West.

So as we watch the never-ending series of attacks against non-Muslims, the persecution of Christians across the Islamic world and even wars between Sunni and Shia, the apologists ask us to believe that Islam is a religion of peace and that what we are witnessing is not Islam. As much as we may want to believe this, it strains credulity. The "peace" is only meant to be among Muslims themselves-and among the same branches of Islam no less.

If what the CAIR types tell us is true, where are the million man marches-at least in the West if not within the Islamic world itself? As we speak, yesterday was proclaimed by CAIR to be a Day of Action. Action against what-the "hijacking" of Islam by ISIS, al Qaeda, Boko Haram and all the other terror organizations running around the globe? Was it a call for Muslims to engage in some self examination? No, it was a protest against police brutality and incarceration of brown and black people-a cynical attempt to rally other minorities to their own cause.  It will be a cold day in Hell before millions of Muslims take to the streets and demand a cleansing of this evil or a Reformation within Islam that would rid it of its violent and intolerant aspects. In truth, they cannot without rejecting Mohammad and the Qu'ran itself. By their definition, that is apostasy, a "crime" by the way, punishable by death under Sharia law.  No, that is not going to happen.

In addition, CAIR has a long track record of former officials who have been uncovered in terrorist plots or providing other terrorist support. The rest of these activists and so-called Muslim leaders are what we call "stealth jihadists" forsaking violence to work within the system to bring about the same goal as ISIS-a worldwide Islamic caliphate.

As for the rest of us, all we can do is await the next attack on our home soil. The day is going to come when the "Islamophobia" overflows our societies. Hopefully, that will not result in hate and retaliation against innocent people who do live peaceful lives and have no wish to harm us or change our way of life. It should, however, force our heretofore feckless leaders to call a halt to Islamic immigration and to take decisive action against the jihadists-stealth or otherwise- who are walking among us and preparing for that envisioned day when Islam will reign supreme. We cannot afford the luxury of having to rely on our diplomatic, immigration, intelligence and police forces of having to weed out the bad from the good.

As for that Islamophobia Research and Documentation Center at UC Berkeley, I suggest Mr Bazian request additional funding to expand his facility. He's going to need a lot of file space.

Power Comes From Lying



Everyone knows how commendable it is for a prince to keep his word and live by integrity rather than by cunning. And yet our own era has shown that princes who have little regard for their word have achieved great things, being expert at beguiling men's minds.

Machiavelli, Niccolo (2009-01-01). The Prince (Vintage Classics) (p. 64). Random House. Kindle Edition.



The latest atrocity committed in the Islamic State has just been released into the public consciousness. According to reports in the mainstream media, a teenage boy has been crucified after being found guilty of betraying the religion of Islam. The devout Muslims who murdered the boy made sure that his ordeal lasted for three days. [1]

This brings to mind the Islamic forces who invaded Malta in 1565, who after finally defeating the Knights of St. John at St. Elmo, beheaded the corpses then nailed them on to crosses before floating them across Grand Harbour to their brothers at Senglea.

One is struck by the attempts by both groups of Muslims to take possession of the Christian narrative and use it for their own dark purposes.

In the face of the atrocities that are being committed daily by the Muslims of the Islamic State, the Prime Minister of Great Britain, David Cameron, acknowledges that “they (the Muslims of the Islamic State) claim to do this in the name of Islam”, but insists that 'that is nonsense, Islam is a religion of peace'. [2] Cameron has already made his position on the religion of Islam clear, stating after the murder of a British soldier on the streets of London by two 'soldiers of Allah' called Mujahid Abu Hamza and Ismail Ibn Abdullah that 'there is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act'. [3]

In order to evaluate Cameron's position on the religion of Islam, we need to familiarise ourselves with some basic logical concepts. A categorical proposition is a statement which relates members of one group to members of another. It has a subject term and a predicate term, and it can be expressed in the following standard forms: All S are P, No S are P, Some S are P and Some S are not P.

One attribute of categorical propositions is quantity. This refers to whether the proposition makes a claim about every member of the class denoted by the subject term. The propositions 'All S are P' and 'No S are P' both say something about all members of the class denoted by the subject term S, so those propositions are said to be universal. The propositions 'Some S are P' and 'Some S are not P' say something about one or more (but not all) members of the class denoted by the subject term S, so those propositions are said to be particular.

Another attribute of categorical propositions is quality. A categorical proposition claims that some or all the members of the class denoted by the subject term are also members of the class denoted by the predicate term, which is affirmative, or that they are not, which is negative. So the propositions 'All S are P' and 'Some S are P' are affirmative and the propositions 'No S are P' and 'Some S are not P' are negative.

The four standard form categorical propositions have traditionally been referred to using the first four vowels of the Roman alphabet. The universal affirmative proposition (All S are P) is called an A proposition, the universal negative (No S are P) is an E proposition, the particular affirmative (Some S are P) is an I proposition and the particular negative (Some S are not P) is an O proposition.

So where the subject term is Islamic doctrines and the predicate term is doctrines that justify acts of cruelty and barbarism, we can see that Cameron has explained his position on Islam using an E proposition (No S are P). This can be illustrated using a Venn diagram, as follows:




Having laid out David Cameron's position, the first thing we have to remember is that Cameron is a British politician, and as Cameron himself has acknowledged (before a Christian audience, in typically Machiavellian fashion) the United Kingdom is a Christian country, our society is founded on Judeo-Christian values, and the Bible is part of our cultural and political heritage. [4] This then, is the context in which Cameron received his education.

Cameron has acknowledged that he is not an authority on any religion, and admits he has not taken the trouble to educate himself specifically about Islam. So there is nothing to suggest that David Cameron knows the first thing about Islamic doctrines and practices. [5]

If anyone asserts that Islam is 'a religion of peace' simply because David Cameron has uttered those words, then they are obviously making an appeal to inappropriate authority. (This is a fallacy – the argumentum ad verecundiam.)

 On the other hand, there is no legitimate reason for us not take the confessions of murderers seriously. When Mujahid Abu Hamza was filmed red-handed at the scene of his crime, for example, he explicitly cited surah at-taubah, the ninth surah of the Koran but one of the last to be written, as he explained his motives to the world.

Time and again, we see Muslims who have committed acts of barbarism stating that their motives are Islamic. We see respected men like Shashank Joshi acknowledging in the national press that 'the practice of beheading is invoked in the Koran'. And we see Muslims like Professor Ednan Aslan from the University of Vienna, a man who unlike David Cameron, has taken the time to educate himself about the religion of Islam, acknowledging that everything the Islamic State is doing is 'theologically correct' because it comes directly from the foundational texts of Islam. [6]

And here we come to an important logical point. If, where the subject term is Islamic doctrines and the predicate term is doctrines that justify 'dreadful' acts of barbarism and cruelty, the E proposition (No S are P) is false, that does not mean that the corresponding A proposition (All S are P) is true.. It's important to note here that that is not what people in the Counter-jihad are saying when they draw attention to specific Islamic doctrines. (Anyone who says otherwise is attacking a straw man.)

If an E proposition is false, then as a matter of logic, we can only say that the corresponding I proposition (Some S are P) must be true. This proposition can be illustrated by another Venn diagram:




Note that the section where S and P overlap is no longer empty, but has the variable x assigned to it, where the value of that variable is undetermined.

So David Cameron's E proposition (No S are P) is false, the British government's position is untenable, taking anything Cameron says about Islam seriously is not rational behaviour, and the people involved in the Counter-jihad are telling the truth. Where the subject terms is Islamic doctrines and the predicate term is doctrines that justify cruelty and brutality, the particular affirmative proposition (Some S are P) is true.




You might think that the nonsense that we hear from the likes of David Cameron should just be ignored, and we can start discussing the real issues behind the ever-growing menace of Islamic terrorism in the Western world any time we like. But we've been waiting for just over 13 years for that to happen, and if we don't do something about it shortly, then it looks like it never will.

As Peter Hitchens says, the views of anyone who wants to discuss problems with Islamic doctrines and practices should be taken on board by their opponents and addressed using reason, facts and logic. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen in this country of ours.

We are going to have to force the issue. We need to use David Cameron's own words against him whenever he makes unsupported assertions about the doctrines and practices of Islam.


“In making this speech I claim no religious authority whatsoever.” - David Cameron, 16th December 2011.

“I'm not a scholar of any religion.” - David Cameron, 8th October 2014.


And whenever any member of the political elite repeats the assertion that Islam is a religion of peace, we need to remind people of what John Stuart Mill wrote in On Liberty:

“They have no authority to decide the question for all mankind, and exclude every other person from the means of judging. To refuse a hearing to an opinion, because they are sure that it is false, is to assume that their certainty is the same thing as absolute certainty. All silencing of discussion is an assumption of infallibility. Its condemnation may be allowed to rest on this common argument, not the worse for being common.”

Mill, John Stuart (2006-08-31). On Liberty and the Subjection of Women (Penguin Classics) (p. 24). Penguin UK. Kindle Edition.


We need to remind people of the archetypal politician Senator Roark in Sin City, who told the Machiavellian truth about politics: 'Power comes from lying – lying big and getting the whole damn world to play along with you.' And we need to ask them if they really want to give that power to a nobody like David Cameron.

Juan Cole Condemns David Cameron for Alerting UK Public to ISIS Fighters From Britain




Calls it Racist and Islamophobic at Speech at Cal State Long Beach 


University of Michigan history professor Juan Cole spoke at CSU Long Beach on Thursday, October 16.  I attended and videotaped the event which was organized by the Middle Eastern Studies Program with assistance from the Department of History and History Students’ Association, and is sponsored by the Office of the Provost and College of Liberal Arts. The auditorium was standing room only, so I am guessing there was around 300 students and professors in attendance. The topic was ISIS. Cole spoke on the historical events mostly in Iraq from the end of the Ottoman Empire to the present and spoke very briefly on Syria. He spoke for about an hour before taking questions. As expected, he spoke very derisively of the Bush administration's invasion of Iraq in 2003. Much of his talk focused on the displacement of the Sunnis/Baath party with the fall of Saddam Hussein and how they became fighters against the Shi'ite regime eventually morphing into ISIS.

One of the more noteworthy things Cole said, however, came during the q and a (Tape 119 at 4:15 mark) when a young man asked him about the Westerners who have joined ISIS, particularly the Brit known as Jihadi John who carried out the notorious beheadings. This led Cole into a denunciation of British Prime Minister David Cameron, who Cole said was using the issue to cause fear among the British public. Cameron, said Cole, was playing to his Conservative Party constituency, which he calls racist. He called the release of the news Islamophobic, a way to beat up on British Muslims,  and said that Cameron should be ashamed. Cole added that there are almost 4 million Muslims in Britain and that the quoted number of 400 who have reportedly gone to join ISIS is an infinitesimal number. He briefly referred to the FBI claiming that some 100 Americans have joined up but said nothing about all the other Western nations whose passport-holders have joined. In responding to another young female questioner, Cole condemned Islamophobia and stereotyping of Muslims.

 I had to leave just as the last two audience members were lined up at the microphone so I missed their questions and Cole's answers.














Comment: While Cole has probably forgotten more about the Middle East than I will ever know, I do take exception with his comments about the release of news that some 400 British Muslims have gone off to join ISIS. While it may be an infinitesimal number compared to the overall Muslim population of the UK, and may not represent majority Muslim thought, it is a cause for concern.  Four hundred ISIS fighters returning to Britain can do a lot of damage to a country that has already experienced the slaughter of a British soldier on a London street and the recent beheading of a woman by a Muslim convert. In addition, the killer who attacked the Brussels Jewish center was a French citizen who had returned from fighting in Syria-to say nothing about the pernicious influence of Anjem Choudary and his followers in the UK. Finally, such Western fighters have originated in other European countries as well as Canada, Australia and the US. This is nothing for Cole to pooh-pooh. But, let's face it: Cole has his agenda.

Worse than Eric Holder-it is possible.

I know of this racist and NONE of it is good.

He could be the worst pick possible to replace Eric Holder. This man is a pure and complete racist and makes any KKK member look like an angel.

If you are not aware of Tom Perez, you must educate yourself and fast. If you thinking of sitting out the elections this year, I urge you not to do so. I also am asking you to vote conservative and punch the democrats ticket out of Mordor on the Potomac.

Post is stolen from the treehouse and thanks to sundance and all there. Just a fine, fine site, maybe the best one there is.

This man is not good for me, you, or our children. He is not safe nor is he good for these United States of America. PatriotUSA

********************

Top Of The List To Replace Eric Holder Is Left-Wing Radical Tom Perez – A Governmental Racist and Liberal Of The Highest Magnitude…

Inside the beltway conversation has all but announced the nomination of current labor secretary Tom Perez to replace Eric Holder. If you were inclined to think of Eric Holder as an activist Attorney General, you can multiply that by infinite magnitudes with Tom Perez. We have researched him for several years as his job before Labor Secretary was the head of the CRS.

Tom perez and Eric Holder

However there are two serious issues which could disqualify Perez from contention to the job, IF they are reviewed by the Senate.

The first was his attachment to an illegal quid-pro-quo scheme.

Back in 2013 a St. Paul, Minnesota community activist, Frederick Newell, appeared before a senate committee to expose (discuss) a $200 million whistleblower lawsuit that Tom Perez, the head of the Department of Justice’s civil rights enforcement, allegedly dismissed as part of a quid pro quo deal with the city of St. Paul.

The city withdrew a petition that was headed to the Supreme Court in a case that would have easily overturned the concept of disparate impact, a racial discrimination doctrine that Perez supports.

The concept of disparate impact is the lynch pin to the entire construct of the DOJ’s approaches toward activist engineering and policy – a supreme court ruling against the application of disparate impact would have destroyed years of social engineering work done by the DOJ.

In exchange for St. Paul dropping the Supreme Court case, the DOJ dropped their support for a whistleblower lawsuit against the city citing the lawsuit having no merit.

In addition to the race-based controversy surrounding the Minnesota, St Paul, quid-pro-quo, we have previously outlined some other perhaps more alarming issues:
To call Perez a radical is to do an injustice to the term itself. Tom Perez is a racial radical, a specific and intentional race based politico of the highest order.

Much of the information you will read about Perez will outline his warm affection to Islam in general, and to Sharia Law specifically. That alone should be alarming to the casually interested. But his ideological perspectives and his previous institutional activity within the Dept Of Justice should raise alarm levels to infinity.

Tom Perez was head of the “Civil Rights Division” within the DOJ. In that position he is in charge of the Community Relations Service, the super-secret race-based sub agency affectionately, and ironically, called “The Peacekeepers”.

Both Eric Holder and Tom Perez use the Dept of Justice to deliver their perspectives of social justice to the larger population. It is the ideology of considering race first, and behavior second, which has led to numerous alarming proclamations from various elements within the larger Federal apparatus.

A four year investigation concluded with a scathing 250 page report outlining the horrific nature of the Civil Rights division within the DOJ and the application of law based on race. (pdf here)



In order for Perez to get through the confirmation process the GOP will have to ignore the report above.   It is really devastating in its directly calling out the unlawful application of justice based purely on the race of the individuals or group.

[I would urge everyone to print and read that pdf above - it will blow your mind] 

Under any normal circumstance the substance within that report would disqualify ANYONE from holding such an important office.  But this is Obama’s America, so anything is possible now.

Consider these social engineering examples:

- In an effort to address what they view as “wrongs” school discipline is now being considered based on race and not behavior.

- In an effort to address black employment, movement is now underway to stop criminal background checks from being allowed as a qualifier for hiring.

These and other manipulative efforts on behalf of the DOJ, and various entities who look to the DOJ for process enforcement (example EEOC), are leading to a very alarming application of law; One that first looks at race, then after review of racial context looks at the behavior of the person, to determine unlawful considerations.

This ‘race as a defining prism’ approach should alarm everyone. Yet there is a strong possibility Tom Perez will be the next nominee for U.S. attorney general…. to continue the Eric Holder legacy.

Perez comes from Maryland – to understand how far he would push the limits of social engineering look at examples of his ideological perspectives/policies as they are executed – and their actual engagements HERE.

Michael Gene Vinassa (1946-1966-Vietnam)

http://garyfouse.blogspot.com



For the past few years, I have been marking Memorial Day with re-postings on two of my high school friends who died in Vietnam. One of them was Michael Gene Vinassa, who died before he was twenty one.

This past weekend I was in the North Hollywood area and decided to swing by Forest Lawn Cemetery before heading back to Orange County. I wanted to visit Mike's grave because on the one previous occasion I was there, I had only found it after great effort and in a driving rainstorm which drove me back to my car after only a few seconds. I wanted to pay a proper visit where I could spend a few minutes and meditate. I also wanted to find my great-aunt's grave, which I had been unable to do the previous time. (Even with the marker numbers, it's still like finding a needle in the haystack at Forest Lawn. For the second time, I failed to locate her grave.)

When Mike was killed, I was just arriving in Germany after finishing Military Police School at Ft. Gordon, Georgia. It's one of the things you think about when you visit the grave of a vet killed in Vietnam. How is it that fate sent me to Germany and Mike to Vietnam and an early death? How is it that I am still alive standing at Mike's grave all these decades later? I am now 69 and Mike is forever 20.

The circumstances of Mike's heroic death are found in this article by a survivor of the battle in which Mike lost his life. As I reported before, Mike was due to finish his tour in Vietnam within days and had to beg his commanding officer into letting him go on the mission.

http://www.jumpingmustangs.com/bravo6571/bravocrazyhorse.html

Mike's mother, Glenadine, survived him by 8 years and is buried next to him. I don't think Mike had any siblings, and it was my recollection that his father was deceased when Mike was young. Mike was all she had.

May you both rest in peace.
