China Deals With Growing Muslim Problem By Shooting Muslims


Sharia Law explained:

"•  Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand (above).
•  Criticizing or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death.
•  Criticizing or denying Muhammad is a prophet is punishable by death.
•  Criticizing or denying Allah, the moon god of Islam is punishable by death.
•  A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by death.
•  A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
•  A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death.
•  A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
•  Girls' clitoris should be cut (per Muhammad's words in Book 41, Kitab Al-Adab, Hadith 5251).
•  A woman can have 1 husband, but a man can have up to 4 wives; Muhammad can have more.
•  A man can unilaterally divorce his wife but a woman needs her husband's consent to divorce.
•  A man can beat his wife for insubordination.
•  Testimonies of four male witnesses are required to prove rape against a woman.
•  A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
•  A woman's testimony in court, allowed only in property cases, carries half the weight of a man's.
•  A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits.
•  A woman cannot drive a car, as it leads to fitnah (upheaval).
•  A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
•  Meat to be eaten must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah - i.e., be Halal.
•  Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.
•  The list goes on."

Round Up

Time for another round up of interesting articles:

Small Lake In Northwest Territories Will Soon Fall Off Cliff

There's an interesting photo at the website, and, of course, global warming is cited as exacerbating the "problem". Never mind that these sorts of geological events have been taking place since time immemorial. One wonders if an article can be written these days without tying in global warming.

Shocking statistics about black slavery liberals will NEVER admit

This article was written by one of my heroes, Allan West. He writes about the breakdown of the African-American family. He quotes another author thus:

"“Today’s black illegitimacy rate of nearly 75 percent is also entirely new. In 1940, black illegitimacy stood at 14 percent. It had risen to 25 percent by 1965, when Daniel Patrick Moynihan wrote “The Negro Family: The Case for National Action” and was widely condemned as a racist. By 1980, the black illegitimacy rate had more than doubled, to 56 percent, and it has been growing since. Both during slavery and as late as 1920, a teenage girl raising a child without a man present was rare among blacks.”"


“Much of today’s pathology seen among many blacks is an outgrowth of the welfare state that has made self-destructive behavior less costly for the individual. Having children without the benefit of marriage is less burdensome if the mother receives housing subsidies, welfare payments and food stamps. Plus, the social stigma associated with unwed motherhood has vanished. Female-headed households, whether black or white, are a ticket for dependency and all of its associated problems. Ignored in all discussions is the fact that the poverty rate among black married couples has been in single digits since 1994.”"

Reminds me of something an Indian elder once said to me, namely: "Welfare spoiled the Indian."

Study Finds Abrupt Climate Change May Have Rocked The Cradle Of Civilization

"Canadians are entitled to ask whether the more than $1 billion of taxpayers' money now going to the public broadcaster could be reallocated and used more efficiently in providing and promoting Canadian content," added deputy chair and Conservative Senator Don Plett.

"We learned that the CBC/Radio-Canada must improve in the areas of transparency and accountability. Facing declining ad revenues and increased competition from Netflix and YouTube, things cannot be 'business-as-usual' at the CBC," said Plett.

Half of the 22 recommendations address aspects of governance, while the rest focus on issues of programming, funding and the public broadcaster's mandate.

The report calls on CBC/Radio-Canada to make public "financial information, procurement and contracts, and salaries."

It also calls on the public broadcaster to "review all non-executive salaries and compensation to ensure they are in line with those for comparable positions with private broadcasters."

And it calls on the CBC's board of directors to "conduct a thorough review of all internal policies to reverse the trend of implementing effective policy only after serious incidents have occurred."

The responsibility for implementing "stringent restrictions on the external activities, including outside paid-employment, of all senior staff and on-air talent to prevent any possible conflict of interest," according to the report, should also fall to the board, as should the hiring of the president and CEO."

The entire report can be found here.

Friends of the CBC, er, I mean Friends of Canadian Broadcasting, doth protest too much, of course:
"...said in a release Monday that and other recommendations would amount to a "thinly disguised cut" to CBC's parliamentary grant."
Too bad, so sad.

Don't tell that to today's warmanistas.

Another one:

Did climate change rock the cradle of civilisation? Global warming shaped the Middle East 5,000 years ago, claims study

And yet another: Abrupt climate change destroyed civilisations

Now, how much CO2 did those early civilisations emit, I wonder.

Senate report on CBC calls for new revenue sources, greater transparency

How ironic that the CBC chooses to report this. Fishing for greater taxpayer sympathy, perhaps? My reaction to this is that perhaps our grandmother's corpse is on the chopping block, after all. There is the small matter, though, of the Supreme Court's ruling that that requires a constitutional amendment.

The whole thing is very interesting. Apparently there are "22 recommendations ranging from finding new sources of funding, to publicly disclosing how much its employees make and putting a stop to all in-house production of non-news and current affairs." Not far enough if you ask me. I'll be delving into this at greater length in a day or two.

Two new studies use gene analysis to suggest that Native American people were settled by Amazon, New Guinea and Australian peoples

I might do more on this one in the next few days, as well.

Expert says boreal forest 'wouldn't exist' without wildfires

Yes. I've often wondered whether our fighting forest fires may actually causing greater problems than they are solving. But there are probably a lot more of them now, due to campers failing to put out their campfires.

Province issues heat advisory
"Environment Canada has forecast temperatures over the next five days to be in the high 20s and low 30s, Thursday temperatures hit 30C with a Humidex of 31; Saturday temperatures are expected to hit 31C."

I remember temperatures of over 100 degrees Fahrenheit (around 103 or 104 degrees Celsius) when I was a kid, and one summer, back when I was living in Saskatoon, the temp got up to +40 Celsius or 104 degrees Fahrenheit.

Okay. Bedtime for Bonzo.

The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede."

Canadian politics are getting really, really riveting. Look at these articles from the old media:

Trudeau switches targets in bid to cut Mulcair’s momentum in polls

Is Canada's Natural Governing Party down for the count? If Mulcair and the NDP are causing such a stir, what does that say about the Liberals? Will Baby Trudeau survive? (I doubt it.) Will the Liberal Party survive? Maybe. Maybe not.

There's this bit from an avowed Liberal, Warren Kinsella:

Team Trudeau: the news is in…

He laments:

“Liberals falling further behind NDP-Conservative race”
“Former Liberal acclaimed as NDP candidate”
“Trudeau switches targets in bid to cut Mulcair’s momentum”
“Brian Gallant won’t campaign for federal Liberals during election”
“This is still Harper’s election to lose”
“EKOS poll: Tories are up”

And then there's this:

Liberal MP caught on tape voicing concerns that Trudeau’s inner circle has ‘no political sense whatsoever’

My. My.

And this:

Mulcair Is Putting Canada At Risk By Pandering to Separatists

I hate to say this, but perhaps we should cut Angry Tom some slack. After all he was sent to parliament by Quebecers and the NDP's strong showing in La Belle Provence was at the expense of the Bloc, an avowedly separatist party.

We live in interesting times. It seems our Natural Governing Party is in trouble. How ironic that this should be the case when spawn of P.E.T. is the leader of the Liberal Party. That alone speaks volumes. The Liberal Party of Canada seems to be stuck in the past and has just woken up to the fact that said spawn ain't no carbon copy of Trudeau the Elder.

I Smell An Election Coming

NOTL library gets cash for upgrades

NOTL is short for Niagara on the Lake, Rob Nicholson's riding.

Ministers Goodyear and Nicholson Make First Announcement through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program

Federal infrastructure fund starts backing projects only two months after program announced

From that last article:
"Conservative ridings received one-and-a-half times more of that infrastructure fund than opposition seats did, a recent Globe and Mail analysis found."

Well, duh!! The Cons do have a majority, so it is to be expected Conservative held ridings might receive more, than other parties. But how much more?

That's hardly surprising. Gotta shore up the base, after all. Moreover, the MPs from these ridings may well have direct access to the real power brokers in Ottawa (ie) the PM and his cabinet, so they will be dispensed with a view to cementing the Conservatives hold on power. It's interesting that the MP for Niagara on the Lake is not just a member of the Conservative Party, but is a cabinet minister. This is politics as usual.

Infrastructure grants tend to be dispensed in portions and as such they should be completed in time for Canada's 150th birthday. Dispensation of small amounts over the course of three or four years will make for good headlines in local community media, keeping a glow emanating around the Cons in those ridings. It would be interesting to know more about each recipient. Are those communities at risk of voting for the Liberals or the NDP? I'm going to do some digging to see what I can come up with.

For some time now, I have had an uneasy feeling that we are slowly drifting to World War III, and it's been primarily because of Barack Obama's policies in the Middle East. This latest deal with Iran only makes my unease that much greater. And there is still more than a year left in his second term as president. (Aside: It wouldn't surprise me if he somehow finagles a third term.)

What would a world war in the 2010s look like? The technology of warfare is much, much different today than it was in the 1940s. And as always, there are some powerful interests that cannot be trusted, Russia and China, to name but two, and most certainly Iran itself.

I've read a lot of hype about the weaknesses inherent in this Iran deal. And I have to confess, I, myself, feel it is a bad deal. Frankly, I think it gives Iran free rein to jerk the western world like a puppet on a string. And I don't trust Obama and crew one iota. He seems bent on removing America from its longstanding role of leadership in the world. (This article "17 ridiculous things the president said at the Iran news conference" and especially the video contained therein, makes it quite clear that Obama is up to just that.) And into this vacuum, who will take America's place? Russia? China? Iran itself? God forbid!!

If there is any doubt about the freakish presidency Obama's legacy will be try pondering these two:

BREAKING: Obama Released TOP IRANIAN SCIENTIST as Part of Nuke Deal; Left Americans to Rot in Hell and Pelosi: ‘No, No,’ Release of 4 U.S. Hostages Held by Iran Should Not Be Part of Nuke Deal

Kinda reminds me of Pelosi's infamous comment "But we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it..." The woman has foot-in-mouth disease and, evidently, I'm not the only one to think so: 14 Dumbest Things Nancy Pelosi Has Said. But I digress.

Now back to the Iran thingy and the foreboding feeling I have. Iran is also a major sponsor of terrorism throughout the world. Making any sort of deal that removes international sanctions, which this deal does, and allows them to eventually acquire nukes would be a disaster. Thanks Obama. Actually, I think the Republicans have been pretty weak, too, tolerating far more that they should have from Obama. There's where political correctness comes in and fear of being accused of racism. I'm also concerned about all those young people who were protesting in the streets of Tehran a few years ago.

What a messed up world! God help us all.

Doltism On Display

Kerry says Iran vow to defy U.S. is “very disturbing”

"Ayatollah Khamenei told supporters on Saturday that U.S. policies in the region were “180 degrees” opposed to Iran’s, at a speech in a Tehran mosque punctuated by chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”.

“Even after this deal our policy toward the arrogant U.S. will not change,” Khamenei said…."

The current administration in Washington is the worst I have seen in my lifetime. Even Mr. Peanut Farmer, Jimmy Carter, did not put the entire world at risk in his dithering over the Iran hostage crisis.

Five British tourists 'to face terror charges' in Inner Mongolia

"Three British nationals and two with dual British-South African citizenship, along with three South Africans and an Indian national, are being held in police cells in the Inner Mongolia city of Ordos after they were arrested, along with 11 others, on Friday morning during a 47-day “ancient China” sightseeing trip."


"The group was held in police cells over the weekend and refused permission to contact their families or seek consular help. They were told that one of their number had links to a banned or terrorist group, and accused of watching “propaganda films” in their hotel rooms."


"Two of those still in custody are Hossain Ismail Jacobs, 72, a former member of the ANC’s armed wing which fought apartheid, and his wife Tahira, 67, who have dual South African-British nationality and a house in Hounslow, West London.

Mr Jacobs is the uncle of Shameel Joosub, CEO of Vodacom, the South African arm of mobile phone giant Vodafone. Mr Joosub’s brother, Salim Aziz Joosub, the CEO of another technology firm in South Africa, has also detained.

Others who have been identified include Dr Feroz Suliman, a South African surgeon at a private hospital near Johannesburg, and his wife Shehnaaz Mohamed, also a medical doctor."

Strange. They all sound like Muslim names. You don't suppose....

I tried to cut and paste this, but it didn't work.  However, it's too good the pass up:

Man Refuses An Opportunity To Be Romantic With His Wife.  What Happens Next Is Genius.

"A married couple in their 60's was celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romanti little restaurant.

Suddenly, a tiny but beautiful fairy appeared on their table saying, "For being such an exemplary, married couple and for being loving to each other all this time, I will grant you each a wish."

"Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband." says the wife.

The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands.

The husband thought for a moment: "Well, this is all very romantic but an opportunity like this will not come again.  I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger that me."

The wife, and the fairy, were  deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish.

So the fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! - the husband became 92 years old.

The moral of the story:  Men who are ungrateful bastards should remember that fairies are female."

Sleeper Cells

This is scary:

Al-Qaeda Sleeper has a Warning for You

"A warning has come from the man that joined al-Qaeda and worked his way close enough to the big shots to help us take out Anwar Al-Awlaki, the heir apparent to Osama bin Laden. The former motorcycle gangster who joined Al Qaeda, only to become a double agent claims to have helped the U.S. hunt down one of the terrorist organization’s top leaders, said this week’s attacks in Paris prove that sleeper cells are positioned around the west, ready to carry out fresh attacks.

The terrorists work to be unnoticeable, Deception is their warfare, in a phone interview conducted by U.S. based terrorism research group Clarion Project. One of the things that these groups believe in is that you are allowed to trick someone into believing that you stand for something else when you really have other agendas. This is supported by the Koran and their clerics. They act as normal members of western society."
"The man, Morten Storm, was an informant for Denmark’s national intelligence agency Security and Intelligence Service (PET), and as such had first-hand dealings with Anwar Al-Awlaki while the U.S.-born cleric was head of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Storm said western countries must protect themselves by canceling the citizenship of homegrown radicals who travel to the Middle East to fight or train. Once radicalized, homegrown jihadists can easily blend into society until given the signal to strike."

Little Known Facts About History

A Short History of Conservatives and Liberals

"Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

1. Liberals; and
2. Conservatives.

Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That’s how villages were formed.

Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.

Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q’s and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement."

More Stuff You Can't Make Up

British Protests, Violence Mark 239 Years Since Expulsion from American Colonies

"As Americans celebrated the 239th anniversary of its independence with barbeques, parties and fireworks, Saturday was a day of rage in the United Kingdom as the British marked what they called the “Proper Mess,” British for ‘catastrophe‘. Peaceful protests against the United States’ independence turned violent, as clashes broke out between NATO troops and protesters demanding a “right of return” to the U.S. mainland.

Riots were held in London, Manchester and other major cities, as British citizens protested their expulsion from what they termed “Occupied Western England.” Many of the protesters consider themselves refugees, as their ancestors were British officials forcibly expelled from the colonies nearly 250 years ago.

“My parents, grandparents, and great-great-great grandparents may have lived in London, but my heart will always be in Philadelphia,” said Rupert Chesselwit, whose ancestors were expelled in 1776. “Baltimore and Charleston are as much a part of England as Birmingham and Leeds.”

Though there were injuries reported in several of the riots, violence did not reach the level of previous years. In 2011, four Britons were killed by the U.S. Coast Guard after storming across the Atlantic Ocean and trying to enter Virginia.

Authorities are warning of potentially more violence next month, when India celebrates its Independence Day."

No Need To Worry

On pollster Angus Reed's webpage there's a chart showing that the Cons will get only 42% of the vote in the next election and 52% goes to the opposition parties. But that 52% is nothing to worry about 'cause it's split between the Liberals, the NDP, the Greens, the Bloc Quebecois, and a host of fringe parties that don't have a hope in hell of even fielding candidates in all constituencies, let alone winning any.

...Sid Ryan is upset:

Union disclosure Bill C-377 angers Ontario Federation of Labour

Bill C-377 forces unions to disclose expenditures

"Sid Ryan, president of the Ontario Federation of Labour, which represents 54 unions, says his organization will redouble efforts to make sure Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Conservatives don't win October's federal election.
The federation's leader is upset with the passing of Bill C-377, the Conservatives' controversial private member's bill that forces labour unions to publicly disclose how they spend their money.
The bill, sponsored by Conservative MP Russ Hiebert and backed strongly by the Prime Minister's Office, gained Senate approval Tuesday and requires unions to publicly disclose any spending of $5,000 or more and any salary of more than $100,000.

Unions will have to provide that information to the Canada Revenue Agency, which would publicly post the information to its website."
