Janet: “Say No to SYRIAN Refugees – Contact Legislators”

Last week’s attacks on the capitol of France by Syrian refugees and refugees from other countries as well as native born Jihadists are a harbinger of things to come for the United States.

“Isis boasted that French blood was sweet bur American Blood would be sweeter.  Isis has also boasted that the United States would be attacked in the near future. “President Obama continues to move forward with his unconstitutional plan to surge tens of thousands of Syrian Refugees into the United States even though: FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress that it was not possible for the U.S. to properly vet Syrian refugees because there were no data points that would show past activity for the majority of Syrians. “Due to the security risk to the American People the United States should immediately curtail all plans to resettle Syrian refugees and all other non-vetted Mid-eastern refugees on American soil. “If you agree please contact the office of your Senators and Congressional Representative also please contact your State Senator, Representative and Governor Wolf and sign the online petition as well! “All members of congress can be reached through the Capitol switchboard the number is: 202 224-3121 “Senator Bob Casey can be reached at: 202 224-6324 Phone 866 802-2833 Toll free 4254 202 228-0604 Fax Senator Toomey can be reached at: 814 453-3010 Phone 814 455-9925 Fax I suggest contacting the local offices as the DC switchboard is often jammed.

Graeme Wood, The Atlantic: “What ISIS Really Wants”

“. . . The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic. Yes, it has attracted psychopaths and adventure seekers, drawn largely from the disaffected populations of the Middle East and Europe. But the religion preached by its most ardent followers derives from coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam.

Virtually every major decision and law promulgated by the Islamic State adheres to what it calls, in its press and pronouncements, and on its billboards, license plates, stationery, and coins, “the Prophetic methodology,” which means following the prophecy and example of Muhammad, in punctilious detail. Muslims can reject the Islamic State; nearly all do. But pretending that it isn’t actually a religious, millenarian group, with theology that must be understood to be combatted, has already led the United States to underestimate it and back foolish schemes to counter it. We’ll need to get acquainted with the Islamic State’s intellectual genealogy if we are to react in a way that will not strengthen it, but instead help it self-immolate in its own excessive zeal. . .

“. . . Denying the holiness of the Koran or the prophecies of Muhammad is straightforward apostasy. But Zarqawi and the state he spawned take the position that many other acts can remove a Muslim from Islam. These include, in certain cases, selling alcohol or drugs, wearing Western clothes or shaving one’s beard, voting in an election—even for a Muslim candidate—and being lax about calling other people apostates. Being a Shiite, as most Iraqi Arabs are, meets the standard as well, because the Islamic State regards Shiism as innovation, and to innovate on the Koran is to deny its initial perfection. (The Islamic State claims that common Shiite practices, such as worship at the graves of imams and public self-flagellation, have no basis in the Koran or in the example of the Prophet.) That means roughly 200 million Shia are marked for death. So too are the heads of state of every Muslim country, who have elevated man-made law above Sharia by running for office or enforcing laws not made by God. . . “

Bridget Johnson, PJM: “Syed Farook’s Workplace Wasn’t the Target of Violence – the Christmas Party Was”

“As analysts hand-wring over why Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik chose colleagues as a target — thus stoking assumptions of a “mixed” terrorism motive that included being sparked by some disagreement or grudge with Farook’s co-workers — the reason for the location of Wednesday’s massacre could simply be linked to terrorists’ focus on the holiday.

“Al-Qaeda and ISIS have encouraged attacks on Christmas Day and at Christmas-themed events to take advantage of vulnerable crowds and to strike at the heart of a Christian holiday.

“Farook’s division at the San Bernardino County health department rented out the auditorium at the Inland Regional Center, a complex that provided aid to the developmentally disabled, for their annual Christmas party. It was part meeting, part banquet for the environmental health office, an event that police said Farook had attended the previous year. Police said there was a Christmas tree in the room and all of the tables were decked out in decorations; some of the deceased and injured were guests of county employees.

“This year, Farook left early during the lunchtime event and returned with his wife, Malik, both clad in tactical gear and heavily armed. San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Barguan said the pair seemed to target no one in particular — they were simply “spraying bullets,” as many as 75 rounds. Fourteen people were killed and 21 were injured.

“They returned in a black SUV they’d rented a few days beforehand to a rented townhouse in neighboring Redlands, which may not have been their primary residence and had been transformed into a bomb-making factory. Police found one explosive device at the auditorium — three pipe bombs strapped together — and 12 more pipe bombs at the home, as well as “hundreds” of tools for making bombs and other unspecified explosive agents or bomb components.

“‘It is possible that this was terrorist-related, but we don’t know. It’s also possible that this was workplace-related,’ President Obama told reporters in the Oval Office today. . .”

Jamie Schram, et al., NY Post: “California killer had a terrorist social network

A Christmas party . . .

“. . . Authorities are investigating whether Farook, 28, was radicalized by international terror suspects with whom he had been in touch, another fed source said.

“In particular, the feds are looking at three men who “were in phone contact” with Farook and his Pakistan-born wife, Tashfeen Malik, 27, in the days before the meticulously planned attack.

“The couple’s preparation included renting a Ford Expedition that was due back the same day they stormed a conference room at the Inwood Regional Center, where the victims included Jewish and Christian employees.

“The killers concealed their murderous mission by erasing ­email accounts, ditching their computer hard drives and smashing their cellphones, sources said.

“Farook and Malik were gunned down by cops in a shootout on a quiet San Bernardino street a few miles from the bloodbath.

“The couple had kept a low profile before the attack, but there were several red flags in Farook’s past — including the suspicious trip to Pakistan, a nation ranked fourth on the Global Terrorism Index. Only Nigeria, Afghanistan and Iraq are ranked higher. . .”

Jonah Goldberg, NRO: (re NY Daily News) “Prayers for Shooting Victims Prompt a Dubious Front Page”

“Long before the blood was mopped up, before police issued the all-clear, before the motives of the shooters were known and the names of the dead were released, before you had any idea how the murderers in San Bernardino obtained their guns — or their bombs — you knew exactly what this story had to be about: gun control.

“In this, of course, you weren’t alone. Countless media outlets and pundits lunged for their security blankets. As of this writing, the day after the slaughter, CNN and MSNBC are still making this all about gun control, as best they can. President Obama, who always slow-walks any admission that Islamic terrorism is involved in an Islamic terrorist attack, once again leapt into the breach to make this about gun control, even as bullets were still flying.

“And to be fair, everybody on both sides of the aisle is susceptible to the social-media-fueled compulsion to chime in before the facts are known. I’ve done it. You’ve done it. We’ve all done it. We all try to resist the race to be wrong first, but sometimes we fall short.

“And sometimes journalists get so caught up in the groupthink frenzy on Twitter that we fail to realize how things seem outside our own echo chambers. And that, I suspect, is where you went wrong.

“On Wednesday, even as the atrocity unfolded, thousands — perhaps millions — of people offered their “thoughts and prayers” to the victims and their families.

A handful of smug liberal ghouls, hungry to turn the shooting into a partisan feast, decided that the Republican politicians offering their thoughts and prayers were liars. The Washington Post’s Gene Weingarten declared on Twitter: “Dear ‘thoughts and prayers’ people: Please shut up and slink away. You are the problem, and everyone knows it.”

“Everyone? “Igor Volsky of ThinkProgress spent the evening insinuating that any Republican offering thoughts and prayers was bought off by the National Rifle Association. “And you got caught up in this frenzy of sneering sanctimony and condescension. So you ran the front-page headline “God Isn’t Fixing This,” alongside statements from House Speaker Paul Ryan and various Republican presidential hopefuls offering their prayers.

“The supposed news story attached to the cover began, ‘Prayers aren’t working.’ It then celebrated Democratic presidential candidates who ‘called for stricter gun laws’ while deriding Republicans for merely ‘preaching about prayer.’ “I’m sure you thought this was all so terribly clever.

“Wrong. It was disgusting and sophomoric — and journalistically dubious. . .”

John Stanton, BuzzFeed: “Loretta Lynch: “Actions Predicated On Violent Talk” Toward Muslims Will Be Prosecuted”

Her next job?

“Speaking at Muslim Advocate’s 10th anniversary dinner, the attorney general said, “We cannot give in to the fear that these backlashes are really based on.”

“WASHINGTON — Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Thursday warned that the Justice Department could take aggressive action against people whose anti-Muslim rhetoric “edges towards violence” and told the Muslim community that “we stand with you in this.”

“Speaking at Muslim Advocate’s 10th anniversary dinner, Lynch said since the terrorist attacks in Paris last month, she is increasingly concerned with the “incredibly disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric … that fear is my greatest fear.”

“Following the Paris attacks, there has been an uptick in violent attacks on Muslims and threats against mosques across the country. That, combined with heated political rhetoric such as GOP presidential front runner Donald Trump’s call to register Muslim Americans, has Muslim community leaders worried that they could be facing a new era of discrimination.

“Lynch made it clear that she shares those concerns, but vowed to use the DOJ to protect Muslims from discrimination and violence. . .”

John Nolte, Breitbart: “Media Fail: Trump Surges to 20 Point Lead, Cruz Leaps into 2nd; Jeb Sinks to 3%”

“After a coordinated DC Media attack that would have ground any other candidate into ash and dust, Donald Trump has not only held on to first place in the latest CNN national poll of GOP primary voters, he has surged +9 points to a massive +20 point lead. As of now, in a 12 person race, Trump sits at an astonishing 36%; his closest rival,

“Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) , jumped +12 points to 16% support.

“Despite spending tens of millions of dollars on ads, Jeb Bush sunk -5 points to just 3% support.

“Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) gained +4 points to earn 12%. Ben Carson lost -8 points and now sits at 14%.

“Chris Christie, the man the DC Media has been hyping for two weeks, sits at just 4%. Last month he sat at just 4%. All that DC Media love didn’t bump the New Jersey governor up even 1 point. . .”

Michael Warren, Weekly Standard: “Cruz: ‘This Nation Needs a Wartime President to Defend It’”

“Texas senator Ted Cruz kicked off Thursday’s Republican Jewish Coalition presidential forum in Washington with a speech filled with applause lines that revved up the crowd.

“Cruz focused primarily on national security and foreign policy, touting his record in the Senate and displaying his knack for rhetorical bombs. It went over well with the audience.

“His biggest round of applause came when he made a pledge about the nuclear deal with Iran. ‘If I am elected president, I have pledged in my very first day in office to rip to shreds this catastrophic deal,’ he said. Audience members cheered and stood in their seats.

“Cruz earned cheers for his characterization of the current stakes. ‘I believe this nation needs a wartime president to defend it,’ he said. Another first-day-in-office promise—‘we will begin the process of moving the American embassy to Jerusalem’—also earned cheers. He excoriated President Obama for being a ‘an apologist for radical Islamic terrorism’ and mocked John Kerry for the secretary of state’s feckless response to terrorist attacks of recent months in France.

“Perhaps in anticipation of a question that would come after his speech about his lack of experience, Cruz spent some of his address listing off some of his Senate accomplishments. Or, at least, positions he has taken in Congress. ‘When John Kerry was nominated, only 3 senators voted against his nomination,’ Cruz said. ‘Never have I been prouder to be one of those three.’

Adam Wren, Politico: “Trump County, USA”

“America’s most reliable bellwether county has fallen for the wild man from New York

“. . . “It’s classic middle America. Small businesses. Family farms. Community schools. We care more about common sense results than we do about party labels and ideology. … You don’t get the excesses of New York or California. We keep it between the 40-yard-lines.”

“So, when it comes to 2016, you might expect these “between-the 40-yard-lines” voters to be soberly weighing the merits of Jeb Bush, Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio, with maybe an occasional flirtation with Bernie Sanders or Mike Huckabee. And yet, when I spent two days traveling around its gathering places and watering holes, I discovered that, while the county’s Democrats have, for their part, coalesced around Clinton, its Republicans mostly wanted to talk about just one candidate: Donald Trump.

“In America’s most prophetic county seat, Trump enjoys a diverse coalition of support, from the 17-year-old punk high school student on the eve of his first election to the 81-year-old Kennedy voter to the kind of folks who will reshuffle their Thursday night plans to attend a county GOP “Politics and Pies” event. Coastal pundits might lament Trump’s appeal to the “low information voter”—but I can tell you one thing: Terre Haute citizens are anything but poorly informed.

“And if Trump can make it here—in this hollowed-out county of swing voters, union halls, three universities and a knot of CSX railroad lines, where voters seem to have a knack for predicting unpredictable elections—he can make it anywhere. . .”

Patrick Howley, Big Govt: “EXCLUSIVE–San Bernardino Tea Party to Obama: Keep Syrian Refugees Out”

“. . . State Department documents reveal that San Bernardino was chosen as one of 180 settlement sites in the United States for the Syrian refugees. Specifically, the Catholic Charities office in San Bernardino was chosen to broker the program. The Catholic Charities office is located only 4.3 miles (a 12-minute drive) from the Inland Regional Center, where Wednesday’s shooting took place. The refugees are going to be dispersed within a 100-mile radius of the Catholic Charities office.

The night before the shooting, Tea Party activists pleaded with local elected officials to stop the refugee inflow, while members of the well-organized Muslim community showed up to fight for more Muslim refugees.

“This is one where I hate to be able to say, ‘We told you so,’ Gregory Brittain, a member of the Tea Party Patriots group in nearby Redlands, California, told Breitbart News. ‘We were warning of this threat.’ . . .”

PA . . .

Andrew Staub, PA Independent: “Republican report: Pennsylvania spent $30 billion during budget impasse”

“Pennsylvania’s budget is more than five months late, but that hasn’t stopped state government from spending taxpayer funds during the stalemate.

Three Republican state representatives released a report Thursday that indicated Pennsylvania spent $30.4 billion in state and federal funds from July through October, sometimes dipping into unused pots of money from as far back as 2005 to slog through the budget impasse.

“While schools and nonprofits have struggled to survive as they await the release of funding, Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration has spent $600,000 on subscription services for departments and $500,000 on membership dues for state agencies, said state Rep. Seth Grove, a York County Republican who helped lead a two-month inquiry into state spending during the impasse.

“‘What we discovered in this report was the administration has used prior year funds without any oversight from the Legislature or transparency to the public to fund Harrisburg first,’ Grove said.

“Wolf’s office responded tersely to the report, but did not answer questions about specific findings included in it.

“Instead, Wolf’s press secretary, Jeffrey Sheridan, referenced a November report from The Citizens’ Voice in Wilkes-Barre that found lawmakers spent $243,000 in public funds for lodging and meals during the first 100 days of the budget stalemate. . .”

Leo Knepper, CAP: “Republican Leader Still Advocating Higher Taxes”

“A couple weeks ago, we noted that Republicans were considering a shell game to hike your taxes. The good news is that budget framework fell apart as soon as people learned the details. The bad news is the Republican Majority Leader, Rep. Dave Reed is still pushing for a tax hike. The new tax increase would come as the result of eliminating sale tax exemptions, taxing e-cigarettes, and raising the tax on regular cigarettes.

“As we have stated repeatedly, Pennsylvanians cannot afford to pay more taxes. Furthermore, it is absurd for anyone to ask them when there are multiple options available to decrease other spending. Pennsylvanians are currently spending $250 million per year to subsidize the racehorse industry. Furthermore, we are being forced to overpay for public projects at all levels of government due to “prevailing wage” mandates. Eliminating the prevailing wage mandate would save taxpayers $1 billion per year. Taxpayers could also save $750 million per year by ditching overpriced money managers for our pension funds. If the legislature and pension boards followed virtually ALL investing advice and embraced passive, also known as indexed investing, the long term returns would outperform the current arrangement and we would save management fees.

“The Governor and his enablers in the Republican caucus are insisting that Pennsylvania has a structural deficit. If that were the case, and it isn’t, why does the proposed budget increase spending 6 percent or more than three-times the rate of inflation? Wouldn’t it make more sense to prioritize current spending and reduce costs, rather than stick taxpayers with a higher bill? . . .”

Sy Snyder, Politics PA: 12/4 Ups & Downs

Tom Wolf. Governor Wolf is rapidly approaching his one year anniversary in office and it’s been quite the rollercoaster ride. This week, though, may very well have been the most volatile of his Administration. Coming into Thanksgiving it appeared that the budget framework might be unraveling. Then, it was revealed by Harper Polling that Pennsylvanians disagreed with his open policy towards Syrian refugees. The Governor also seemed to sidestep the question of removing Attorney General Kathleen Kane, putting the impetus on the State Senate instead of himself. Finally, he found himself in an argument with the GOP over the funding shortage for domestic violence centers. Nevertheless, a budget deal appears feasible in the next few days. Wolf may yet be able to end Year One with a big victory.

Kathleen Kane. This should’ve been a good week for the Attorney General, given the bad news some of her enemies received. As has usually been the case, however, Kane just can’t help but get into her own way. At a bizarre press conference, Kane announced that she would be appointing a Special Prosecutor to investigate all possibly offensive emails. Not only is it questionable whether the AG even has the authority to do this (her law license was suspended after all), it’s also perplexing why she is taking this action now. Kane knew about these emails for years and has selectively released some of them. She’s also been told she can reveal them all yet for some reason chooses not to. Who knows what the Attorney General is thinking.

Scott Petri. After a slow, steady buildup Scott Petri made it official this week when he announced he’ll be running for the GOP nomination in Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional district. While he still faces primary competition, the State Representative should be the favorite to replace Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick in the only competitive seat in the commonwealth. The next few months may not go his way but at this moment, Petri appears to be the front-runner in a wide open race.

Donald Trump. The Donald is once more a lightening rod for controversy. The Pennsylvania Republican Party was proud to make him the guest speaker for their Commonwealth Club event next weekend at PA Society. Unfortunately for Trump, a number of Republican officials don’t want to be seen with him. This could prove to be a problem for someone  who is running for the Republican presidential nomination. Already Sen. Toomey, as well as Congressmen Dent, Meehan and Costello have said they won’t be attending for one reason or another. It will be intriguing, though, to see if Trump mentions these men during the event and what he’ll have to say about them.

Lowman Henry. Speaking of the race for the 2016 Republican nomination for President, Lowman Henry scored a major appointment. The CEO of the Lincoln Institute of Public Opinion Research Institute will be the Pennsylvania Chair of Ted Cruz’s campaign. The Texas Senator has seen gains nationwide and in Iowa lately so he just may be able to make it to PA’s April 26th contest.

Mark Levin Show (12/3/15)

“On Thursday’s Mark Levin show, The real cause of the shooting in California was radical Islamic terrorism. There were repeated red flags from these terrorists which were ignored because this administration cares more about their agenda than our safety. Also, instead of talking about the terrorist threat that America faces, President Obama decides to talk about the dangers of the gun show loophole. However, neither more background checks or fixing this loop hole is going to save innocent Americans from shootings by terrorists and other violent people. California has universal background checks yet could not stop materials from getting into the hands of the San Bernardino terrorists.

“Later, Sen. Mike Lee calls in to discuss his support of Rand Paul’s bill to halt refugees coming in from countries that are at a high risk of exporting terrorism to America and his re-election bid in 2016.

“Later, Mike Huckabee calls in to talk about his support of Article V and the fair tax.

James Brody: Barry’s Next Job

(Submitted to Tea Party Nation)

 

“The best lack all conviction, while the worst, Are full of passionate intensity. (Yeats, 1920)

 

First, Vlad and Barry have an acute “sense of the future” (Barkley 1997; Bronowski 1977). Either man can sit under a tree, imagine different outcomes, and pick one of several to pursue. And both of these guys magnify their self-interest although Barry may get his most useful schemes while on a golf course and Vlad at the gym.

In contrast, much of humanity consists of IQ 75s (Lynn & Vanhanen, 2006) who quickly follow peer-pressure, move in swarms, and attend five-times-per-day prayers and lectures. High-verbal bright people still have the maternally donated faith that all can become equal through processes of example and lecture. Nope! Only the high-verbals and their children comply with lectures.

Second, synchrony is a fundamental organizer in physics (Strogatz 2003; Kuramoto 1984/2003). Pendulums are one kind of oscillator and two pendulums, even if activated separately, move into identical ticks and tocks. (Christiaan Huygens discovered this three-hundred-forty years ago!) Likewise, any group of similar oscillators will move into synchrony with each other – all come to vibrate at the same frequency and in time with each other. True for molecules, for football and basketball fans, traffic flow, celebrations, and for immigrants and ruffians. Most most of us partner with someone who is “just like us” and whether in Paris or Dearborn, we copy whomever surrounds us and morning rush hour is avoidable but nearly inevitable.

Synchrony also plays in the characters in different generations (Clark, 2014; Brody, 2015). That is,

“Clark found such to be true when he and his friends tallied the names on probate records, university rosters, tax returns, and death certificates in Sweden, the United States, medieval and modern England, India, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and Chile. China was perhaps the biggest surprise: Mao’s red ants killed 40-70 million teachers, farmers, business owners, and individuals thought to have capitalist sympathies but now, more than a half-century later, the same social positions are held in the new China by families with the same surnames.

“Clark (2014, 126) also suggests:

“But why are mobility rates seemingly constant across very different social regimes? Here I conjecture that this is because status inheritance is indistinguishable from the inheritance of genetically controlled attributes. This is not to say that social status is determined genetically. But whatever drives it is, on the tests performed here, indistinguishable from genetic inheritance. (emph. added, jb) Status may or may not be genetically inherited, but for all practical purposes, nature dominates nurture.” (Brody, 2015)

Synchrony unfolds not only within communities but also across generations!

Ironically, Vlad and Barry are natural partners, each a narcissist who helps the other! Synchrony spreads,, armies march, choirs sing, mobs howl, and even prisons fill with those who are in partnership with other prisoners.

Putin also helps Hillary’s campaign because she’s enough of a fool to fail his tests for an equal partner. He, thus, lowers the odds that Cruz. Fiorino, or even the Donald will win election.

“Impeachment,” a tool to interfere with Obama’s next job application, is resisted by Republicans, notably by Bill Bennett, because Barry might be impeached but never removed and – therefore – impeachment becomes pointless. This argument stupidly assumes that Barry will quietly disappear at the end of his term. Every one of his initiatives, however, has – through synchrony -a substantial Cloward-Piven component. Hordes of needy people organize and wave signs as if one rather than mastering language, math, or a trade. These perpetual beggars guarantee the continuation of Barry’s schemes and may help Barry to get his next phone, jets, and golf memberships. And he will certainly imitate Bubba – stealing YOUR records in cartons, on disks, and by wire for his and Val’s profit.

Impeachment of Obama, therefore, is our best option to get him out of our lives by smudging his record and his self-promotions. We have only a year and a month.

Yeats may have been right . . .
