We are not flying anywhere until sanity returns to check-in and boarding procedures. What lit my fire on this topic were all the Fox News “expert” discussions regarding the new procedures for full body scanning and genitalia-groping of passengers, added to all the other pure crap we are already subjected to. Removal of shoes, belts, crucifixes, medals, etc., etc., etc., ad infinitum. And all the Fox News “experts” smile at the camera and say it’s all fine with them; they have nothing to hide, and it’s a small sacrifice to keep a plane from being blown out of the sky.
They have prepared themselves for herding and tending by petty bureaucrats and their hirelings. They have willingly and agreeably turned themselves from Americans into simple sheep, ready to be spoon-fed and led around by the nose throughout life. The Jihadists have already won.
We have already recommended that we Outlaw Marxism and Outlaw Islam in the USA. Both the Communist Manifesto and the Koran are not only un-American, but they are proactively anti-American, to the point of seeking the destruction or subjugation of Constitutional America. The Communist Manifesto and the Koran agree on these points:
There is more, but that’s enough for now. If you haven’t examined the Communist Manifesto or the Koran, shame on you.
The Case for Profiling. How many Jewish grandmothers, Catholic nuns, toddlers or “typical Americans” have gone anarchist, revolutionary or Jihadist? How about Amish farmers?
How many non-Moslems have blown themselves up to kill others, blown up a plane or hijacked one and flown it into a building, just to kill “infidels”?
The whole air security problem, born on 9/11/01, is due exclusively to Jihad.
I submit that every single Jihadist on earth is a Moslem. I submit that in all of world history, there has never been a Jihadist that was not a Moslem. The current threat to world air traffic is Jihadist. Jihadism is very strictly a Moslem phenomenon. No one else on earth does these things.
With those simple facts staring us in the face, why should we submit ourselves, including professed religious, to all the new indignities that the Fox News “experts” see no problem with, and perhaps enjoy? What is happening to our collective sense of Judeo-Christian decency? What kind of people are we allowing ourselves to be molded into by others? As for us, nobody is going to scan or grope me or my wife and remain upright, because I won’t have it. Until these restrictive and invasive rules change, if we cannot get there by car then we simply will not go there. Period.
The only people who should be searched in any such manner are Moslems, because Moslems are the only ones who support and teach Jihadism. All Moslems do not practice Jihad, but few if any Moslems do not agree with Jihad, support it, teach it to their children, celebrate it’s victories and consider it’s practitioners to be heroes or martyrs. Jihad is embedded within Islam and is inseparable from it. It exists nowhere else on earth. All Moslems are not Jihadists but all Jihadists are Moslems. No exceptions.
In the Outlaw Islam page we recommended that Moslems be restricted from entry into the US, so most Moslems at US airports should be on their way out, hopefully via the route of deportation. Moslems and Moslems alone should be subjected to the rigid requirements of scanning, groping and so forth, and the rest of us should be left alone.
No American should allow any threat emanating from any Koranic verses ordering the murder, conversion or subjugation of American citizens to change the way we live our lives and go about our daily business in our own country, or anywhere in the world. This is nuts. If we allow these people to just roam free among us while we frisk grandma and eliminate everybody’s shampoo or shaving cream from their luggage, what does that say about our common sense, let alone our cherished American individual liberty?
If non-Jihadist Moslems get upset enough about this treatment and profiling, and they are truly peaceful people, then they should work to openly discourage and denounce Jihad within the Moslem community. Don’t hold your breath waiting for any of them to do that.
Anyway, I feel better now; I just had to get that off my chest. Keep an eye any Moslems around you. Read the Koran for your own self protection.
May you please God, and may you live forever.

Some things are just necessary even though they may be unpleasant. If it will keep air traffic safe in America then it is a small sacrifice we make to make that increased safety more of a reality. If a US Senator (McCaskil) can put up with it on a regular basis, then what is so special about you or me? Profiling is against the law, and it will never be done here. You need to get over it.

I can’t speak for you, but for me, I am a believing, devout and practicing Christian. Let me say this about Senator Claire McCaskil, D., MO.:
She is not a lady.
English terms such as simple decency and public propriety are absolutely meaningless to her; they are not even in her lexicon. Even if we disregard the unnecessary (and repeated) irradiation of the American public, no devout Christian or devout Jew of any variety or description willingly exposes their naked body to any stranger, or allows themselves to be touched, let alone touched indecently, by any stranger.Only Marxists and Moslems can say that “The ends justify the means.” Christians and Jews cannot say that, because it is immoral, it is wrong, and it acts to weaken and destroy our Judeo-Christian Ethos, by which we live, and which forms the bedrock foundation for our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. McCaskil follows the ethos of BMDFP10 and fellow Marxists, like the Clintons, the Kerrys, the Obamas and so many others who infect our highest public offices, our judiciary and our news rooms.
Re the current attitude toward profiling – any law than may be legislated may be repealed. Profiling makes sense. Not profiling is just plain stupid. This applies to border security and illegal aliens as much as it does to Jihad and Jihadists, and to fighting wars, and to fighting crime.
I will not “get over it.” Read 2 Mac. 7, the story of the seven sons, tortured unto death for not doing a much simpler thing, under direction of immoral authority: eating pork. Learn the lesson.
What kind of people are we to become? You may do as you wish.
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

I submit that the new body scans and pat-downs of the whole of the flying population are ineffective and will do nothing whatsoever to increase our air security. The so-called panty-bomber didn’t even go through any TSA screening; his flight originated outside of America. To date, the only people in America who are even being considered for any kind of waver from this humiliating and demeaning scrutiny are the only ones among us, among whom may be found Jihadists: Moslems.
After they kill some more of us, what’s next? Will they begin herding us into nudist-colony like preparation pens from which we will be subjected to bodily orifice examinations?
Does anyone today really believe that the Nanny State knows best? Who is being represented by our government here? It most certainly is not We The People. None of this was legislated. It was regulated with full force of law by unrepresentative bureaucrats and their hirelings.
We simply have got to end this Marxist and Moslem domination of us.
Date: Sun Dec 12 22:13:14 2010
Vic, I think you’re going way overboard here. Senator McCaskill is merely doing her job and trying to be a good example and calm people down. If she is no lady in your opinion, then you must have a low opinion of the TSA workers, who are only doing their jobs. You are not helping any with this tirade.

Anyone who smiles at the cameras and describes her regular and repeated experiences of having her genital area fondled by strangers as getting her “love pats,” wink-wink, is no lady. I can think of many names that might apply, but lady is not one of them.
As for the TSA workers who are only doing their jobs, if your choice is limited between homosexuals and heterosexuals, who do you think might apply for a TSA groping job, or remain in a TSA groping job, in which they are required to touch the genital areas of same-sex victims? Just take a wild guess.
I wonder why the topic of the five (5) genders popularized by Democrats and the United Nations are not involved in determining who does the groping. There are supposed to be male and female homosexuals, male and female bisexuals, male-to-female transsexuals, female-to-male transsexuals, and we could throw into the mix all the cross-dressers and impersonators. If these are representative of the population, then it seems that TSA should be hiring from their ranks too, right?
Where has common sense gone? God help us.

Why this vitriol against Muslims?? My friend, I am a Muslim. I do not go around blowing myself up or other people. I do not accept it, condone it, or think it is an integral part of my religion. Blaming Islam for jihad makes as much sense as blaming the Catholic Church for Irish terrorism. Yes, we have issues with orthodox Islam, but absolutely nothing that warrants driving us out of this country in droves, as you suggest. What if Muslim countries expel all Christians? What if India and other Hindu nations expel people who believe in other religions? Is that how you suggest we create a secular global village? You think only Muslims commit acts of terrorism? Check out the name of David Coleman Headley who participated in the Mumbai terror attack. All Jihadists are Muslims, yes, but jihad is NOT THE ONE AND ONLY FORM OF TERRORISM, THERE ARE MANY, though probably not in the American context. You find groping intolerable for you and your wife, but suggest it is okay to grope us just because we believe in a different faith? What makes you think that my wife would find it any more pleasant than other decent women? Racial and religious profiling is reprehensible and that, as far as I know, is not what America stands for. It is precisely because of people like you that mainstream America has such a bad opinion of us. I recently had a patient in my hospital who came in with acute appendicitis, which required immediate excision. His mother refused permission for me to perform the operation because she could not be persuaded that I was acting in the child's best interest. She was fine with it when another doctor offered to perform it. The blame for the rampant distrust of an Arab name and brown skin, I lay directly at the feet of people like you.
If you ever learn to be moderate in your views, give thanks to your god, for he is the same as mine. We simply call him by different names.

My vitriol against Moslems stems from the Koranic verses that direct disciples to make continuous war against me and mine until no other religion exists other than Islam. That sort of thing tends to make me quite vitriolic. I do indeed blame Islam for Jihad and all Jihadists because Islam invented Jihad, and owns it. There is no such thing as a Catholic Jihadist, or a Lutheran Jihadist, or a Jewish Jihadist, or a Hindu Jihadist. In all the world, there are only Moslem Jihadists.
Sure, there are other kinds of terrorists out there, always was, always will be. There are the really depraved Marxists and anarchists, for instance. But it was Moslems who flew the planes into the World Trade Center and who are determined to destroy us, and to destroy Israel, and to conquer the world.
Why should we want to create a secular “Global Village”? That is the last thing we need. We, and you, have no need of any New World Order, no matter what Hillary, Obama or any Ayatollah or Imam might have to say about it.
You and your wife are the Moslems here, not us. It is your religion that calls for Jihad and demands that you make war against us. How well or how poorly you follow your own religion at the moment is of less concern to me than that Islam is your professed religion. That, and that alone, makes you and yours suspect.
You may not expect me to moderate my views toward any committed, sworn enemy ideology. Nor may you expect me to recognize Allah as having any relationship at all to the one and only God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. If you think that you and I are “people of the book” then you have never even read the book. The God of the Old Testament and the New Testament bears no resemblance whatsoever to the perverted invention of Mohammed.

I can understand your attitude towards my religion; even I find parts of it questionable to be very honest. But every religion has its flaws. Can you deny that radical Christianity is faultless? But that is beside the point. You might find my religion unacceptable, fair enough. But questioning the integrity of my religion is very different from questioning my integrity. This is the country that I was born into. My parents came here 39 years ago from Pakistan. I was born an American, my kids are American citizens, and I respectfully submit that I am no less American than you are. What are you trying to say? Either convert to Christianity or get out of the country? Is this land not large enough for us to coexist peacefully? You might argue that Christians get far less freedom in Muslim countries, and that is true enough. This is true enough, but you will not change that by institutionalizing intolerance in America. I am here to stay as is my right. Get over it, for you have no choice in the matter.

“Radical” religion has nothing to do with it. What I oppose is Islam, and not any particular subset or branch of it. Mainstream, orthodox Islam is intolerant, and it is so intolerant as to be completely incompatible with the American Declaration of Independence, the American Constitution and the Bill of Rights. What does every-day ordinary Islam say about freedom of religion, for instance, or about the notion of representative government as opposed to Islamic law?
Until 9/11, I always thought that the ideology most dangerous to man was Marxism; but after 9/11 I looked a lot closer at Islam, and I wish everyone else would look into it too. I’ve been over this ground, in The Last Barbarians, and in Tolerating Intolerance, and in a whole bunch of other web pages on this site. Get this straight: being a tolerant people does not mean that we need to tolerate those who, themselves, are so intolerant of us as to intend and plan to destroy us.
It is you, my friend, who are institutionalizing intolerance in America, and in the whole world. I will not get over it. I do have choice in the matter. We have representative government here, and that is why I recommended legislating to Outlaw Islam in America.
So long as you embrace Islam and the march to Ummah you and yours represent a menace to freedom and free thought everywhere. Until you stand and publicly renounce Islam, that is your status. Lots and lots of ex-Catholics and ex-Jews and ex-Baptists and ex-Hindus have renounced their previous religions. If, as you say, you find parts of Islam questionable, then why don’t you just loudly and publicly renounce those parts?
Could the reason be that Islam is so dangerously intolerant of any such negative public proclamations?

You speak about free speech and rights of free men, and you claim to be a catholic. Does the catholic church have such a proud history of embracing free speech that opposed its ideology? I could go on and on about Galileo affair and silencing liberation theology and so forth. Ummah is a joke that no modern Muslim embraces. Why do I not renounce my religion? Muhammad left behind some of the wisest and purest teaching of all times (as did Jesus). Because parts of it is unacceptable (like polygamy) in present times, is no reason to renounce my faith altogether. You claim to have learnt Islam. Perhaps you should read what Quran says rather than what some radical mullah says. Just like Westboro Baptist church do not represent all of Christendom, radical Islam and Bin Laden does not represent mainstream Islam. When people like Pat Robertson and Ann Coulter make inflammatory speeches, that is perfectly okay and acceptable. When some fringe loony with a Muslim name speaks about destroying Europe and America, that is supposed to represent all our sentiments? Isn't your argument against Islam very similar to the anti-Semitism that swept Europe in 1930s and 40s? Think about it. For each Muslim in US that has been convicted of acts of terrorism, I can show you 1000 others who strive to make this country great. How many Muslims do you suppose work for NASA, or are they all Caucasian protestants? How many Muslims work in our best universities? If you think that all of them are working in unison, waiting for the right moment to bring this country down to it's knees, then you are a bit paranoid.
(I think our conversation has gone on long enough. This will be my last post. Thank you for a very pleasant discussion, though we continue to have our differences in opinion.)

Yes, the Catholic Church does have a long history of promoting free speech, although not a thoroughly exemplary one. I wrote about some of it in the The Galileo Inquisition page, the The Inquisition Myth page and the The Medieval Crusade page. Please, by all means, do go on and on about the Galileo affair. I’m all ears.
Ummah is a joke? Really? No modern Moslem embraces it? How did I miss something that important? When did Islamic teaching and jurisprudence change? There is no more dar al-Islam, and there is no more dar al-harb, and there is no more struggle between them? I don’t know how I missed all that; it must have been an epic change of direction for Islam, and I never even heard of it. Are you sure? Have you talked to your Imam lately?
Can you tell me something Osama Bin Ladin said or did that was not in accordance with the proper teaching of Islam? I can’t seem to find any such thing.
Can you tell me something Pat Robertson or Ann Coulter said that you might interpret to be inflammatory, but that was not true? (I’m pretty sure that everything I’m saying here is inflammatory to someone, but it’s all true. Sometimes the truth stings.)
My anti-Islam stance is not similar to any anti-Semitism, from the ‘30s or ‘40s or any other time frame. The Jews never set out to convert, dominate or kill everyone who was not a Jew. The only two forces in the world today trying to do that sort of thing are the false ideologies of Marxism and Islam.
The number of Moslems, like the number of Marxists, who work at such places as NASA and various American universities, and in high places in American government, and in the military, does indeed adversely affect my peaceful sleep. Every Moslem, and every Marxist in America causes me to worry, whether they are useful idiots or evil conspirators. They work for the cause, and the cause is anti-American, and they raise up potential future anti-American useful idiots or evil conspirators. And, potential future Jihadists, anarchists and bloody revolutionaries.
It’s time they were all recognized for what they are, identified and isolated before they do to us what they’ve done to other nations.

Hi Vic, Curiosity as to what your latest response would be got me back to this blog. I am sorry to be amongst the causes of your sleepless nights. Putting these issues aside, I am curious as to know what your view of an ideal world is, and not just America. In my view, the world as we know has been shrinking for decades now, not literally of course, but people of different religions and nationalities, representing diverse civilizations, can be found in almost all corners of the globe. America is no exception. You would probably be amazed to learn the number of Christians and people of other faiths who reside in the so called "muslim world". This trend, I believe, is going to continue until mankind of all races and religions co-exist and nationalist boundaries break down. It has to be so. The economic realities of the day say that this has to happen. Look what happens in Europe, of the creation of the EU, and how many MNCs are much larger and more powerful than many small countries. You might not like this, but you can hardly deny that this is the road down which mankind is heading. You might love a last man standing fight, but I am afraid that you simply cannot turn back the clock. In the drive towards secular globalization, I am afraid dar al-Islam and dar al-harb would have no more relevance than the guns-toting, bible-thumping, homophobic wizards.

As for a LIBERAL MUSLIM who votes DEMOCRAT, I can only imagine. By the way, you get the spellings wrong sometimes. It is Muslim, not Moslem. And it is not Koran, the closest it can be written in English is Qur’ān. Arabic is a very complex language.

I went through the outlaw Islam page with its interesting arguments, all impractical and illegal of course, nonetheless interesting. What do you suppose should be done with muslims who were born here, raised as Americans, studied in the finest halls of learning in America (I went to Yale), hold American citizenship and no other, and live here? Deport to which country? And what if the Arab nations retaliated in the same fashion by expelling their Christian citizens and other minorities. I suppose all the expelled can form their own little country. You really are smart, you know. A real visionary.

Re yours of Fri Feb 18 10:39:07 2011:
I do not blame you so much for my worries about the enemies of freedom so much as I blame Marx and Mohammed, so don’t feel bad. (The fact that I do not blame you personally does not mean that I trust you.)
My view of an ideal world is non-existent. Perfection is not of this world, but the next. I am surprised that you have discovered that there are many diverse cultures in the world – when was it ever not so? What makes you think the world is getting smaller in this regard? Where is the “trend” you speak of? Marxism and Islam imposing itself on other cultures while pretending to be friendly? If that’s it, then I’m afraid the jig is up, at least here in America, because people are waking up to that. That’s what the great American Tea Party awakening is all about.
You may think loss of sovereignty of all nations might be a good thing; if so, then you are a real fool. Who will rule? How? You say it has to be so? Bull. Our Declaration and our Constitution and our Amendments were developed by us, for us, and no one else. It describes who we are and what kind of people we are. If you think everybody needs to coexist, then you go coexist among cannibals for awhile and let me know how that turns out for you, and then maybe I’ll consider it.
I predicted economic and social failure of the EU at the time it got started, and that failure is coming to pass now. It was a stupid idea to begin with. The only trend you can see in this truly silly experiment is toward catastrophic economic failure, social breakdown, anarchy and chaos followed by dictatorship. It may be too late for most member nations. Most of them have no ability to project military power beyond their own borders, much less even defend themselves. They are spoiled, dependent nations, no longer independent, with dependent populations no longer inventive or excited about anything, other than the next hand-out.
The resulting dictatorships will favor some variant of Marxism or some variant of Islam, and instead of thumping Bibles, the dependent, defenseless heterophobes will thump either the Communist Manifesto or the Koran, both of which have a lot more popularity there than here.
Re yours of Fri Feb 18 12:06:55 2011:
I just prefer Moslem. Way back when I first started writing here, that’s what I used, and I’m not about to go back and re-edit everything I wrote just to change that. Here’s what I said about it in the Ehtics Of Language page:
One of you asked, why do I use Moslem instead of Muslim; well, what can I say. I’m just old, I guess. In my formative years, when I was educated, it was Moslem, and it was Mohammed, and it was the Koran, and that’s what I use. I still think of Peking rather than Beijing. For personal reasons, Ho Chi Minh City will forever be, for me, Saigon.
Re yours of Fri Feb 18 12:14:22 2011:
There is nothing illegal about legislating new law in America; we do it every day. Our Founding Fathers were wise enough to even give us the ability even to amend the Constitution, so that even the Constitution could be changed by us, in the trust that the people, even when they went wrong, could correct the error and get back on the correct path. That is the nature of Representative Government.
You don’t need to be deported until after you’ve committed and been convicted of a crime and served your sentence. What I would legislate is that you should be denied security clearance, denied elected office, denied government employment and denied military service. The same as any Marxist. Moslems and Marxists should be required to register as potential threats to the American government and to other American citizens, so that they can be watched.
Thank you very much for the compliment; you are most perceptive.

Free will rather than blind submission is required for everlasting life. If free will is necessary for salvation – and it is – then men must be free to exercise it.
Man seeks to perfect mankind and to perfect man’s world, and he thinks himself wise in this seeking. But the world is not perfectible by man, for man himself is imperfect. The farther we move away from God and His law, the wiser we think we become. Yet the bare beginning point of wisdom is the proper fear of God.
Jesus said repeatedly that His kingdom was not of this world. Satan rules here. And Satan is never happier and never makes so much progress as when men do not even believe that he exists.
Here, you are called to do the best you can do with what you’ve got to work with, until He comes again.

Just went through this discussion after going through much else on this site. I must say that you are extraordinarily judgmental and insulting. After repeatedly trashing a someone else's religion and belief system, you then have the gall to preach a sermon from your own religious base in an “addendum” to the conversation. As for Catholicism, let me say that any god who damns someone to hell for breaking his law is not a the kind of god I would choose. You should try to climb out of the dark ages.

If a religion is false I will say so. If a belief system is false I will say so. The most significant element differentiating competence from incompetence in any field of study or in the living of life is good judgment. You will either be judgmental, or you will be incompetent. You are called to exercise your judgment, not sublimate it. I am sorry about your view of Catholicism, but I’m afraid you have no true choice in the matter of selecting a god, for there is only one. As many before have done, you may invent one, adopt one someone else invented, fashion one with your hands, pray to it as if it could do something, but none of that will be of any avail, for it will not be a god, only an imagining.
God does not damn anyone to Hell; men do that to themselves by their own free will choices. The Gospel is preached to you, and you will accept it or you will reject it. It’s just like physical science. If you deny the law of gravity and jump off of a cliff, you do not break the law of gravity. You break yourself against the law of gravity. Similarly, if you deny God’s law and commit grave sin, you do not break God’s law, for it cannot be broken. You break yourself against God’s law. It is your choice, based on your judgment.

Doesn't this profiling violate the fourteenth amendment of the constitution?
Date: Fri Apr 01 06:13:31 2011
From: Vic Biorseth
In a word, no.
Here’s the Fourteenth Amendment, copied from the American Constitution page on this site:
[Proposed 1866; Allegedly ratified 1868. See Fourteenth Amendment Law Library for argument it was not ratified.]
Section. 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Section. 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.
Section. 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
Section. 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
Section. 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
I submit that professed (or hidden) adherence to the Koran (or to the Communist Manifesto) amounts to insurrection, rebellion and crime against the Constitution. Both Islam and Marxism give aid and comfort, at the very least, to America’s enemies, and they seek and intend the destruction of Constitutional America. The intent of the ratification of this Amendment was not to protect enemy activities intended to destroy the very foundation of America, but to protect those American citizens who live within the law and the Constitution.

Why don’t you stick to the question? Section 1 clearly establishes equal protection. Why don’t you just say you oppose equal protection?

The reason that I don’t say that I oppose equal protection is that I do not oppose equal protection. You need to take your institutional, public-education blinders off and read it again, objectively.
The 14th Amendment meant to do two things. It meant to grant full citizenship to former slaves, including the right to vote and the right to full representation in government. The second thing it meant to do was to deny full citizenship, including the right to vote and the right to representation in government, to all Civil War veterans from any of the Confederate States, because they had been involved in “rebellion” and “insurrection” against the United States. Until now, the Civil War had been America’s most trying test; even greater than the two great world wars that were to come.
I submit that followers of Marx and followers of Mohammed are, whether overtly or covertly, involved in rebellion and insurrection against the United States. If you read Marx’s seminal work, the Communist Manifesto, and if you read Mohammed’s seminal work, the Koran, you will see that this is true. Neither Marxism nor Islam can coexist with Constitutional America. They both seek her destruction.
The 14th Amendment never intended to protect America’s enemies on an equal footing with American citizens who live within the law and seek it’s protection. Marxists and Moslem are opponents of American law itself. They despise America at her very foundation.
Look at the written and spoken words and the actions of such personages as Jeremiah Wright, Walter Cronkite, Nidal Hasan, Lee Boyd Malvo, Jane Fonda, Barrack Hussein Obama, Saul Alinsky, and a host of others I could name, and tell me with a straight face that they are not committed to rebellion and insurrection against Constitutional America.
Why should they be granted equal protection and equal representation with the law abiding citizens who love this country?

Did you hear about the old lady in a wheelchair who was forced to take off her diaper for the TSA jerks? Maybe she should have been wearing a burka.

From: Vic Biorseth
Yes I heard about it. And now they are worried about bombs implanted into people. So, it logically follows, well endowed women may expect particularly increased attention, and to have their breasts closely examined and squeezed to see what king of implants might be in there. Unless their wearing a burka, of course.
The shear stupidity of it all is stunning. This isn’t just a loss of critical thinking; it is a loss of thinking, period. It is prepping the American citizenry for herding. Think about it.
The shoe-bomber was an Islamic man who boarded the plane from outside the US, and now every non-Islamic American citizen who boards a plane inside the US has to take off his shoes.
The panty-bomber was an Islamic man who boarded the plane from outside the US, and now every non-Islamic American citizen who boards a plane inside the US has to be irradiated and/or felt-up in the genital area and between the buttocks.
It just doesn’t get any more stupid than this. The entire TSA, from the top to the bottom, has got to be so stupid that we have to wonder how they could even be smart enough to take the next breath and continue to live.
The case you mention is a perfect example of bureaucratic lunacy. Because of this idiocy, a salesman from Paducah has to tolerate some fruitcake jamming a hand between his buttocks just to fly from Chicago to Atlanta. And don’t tell me these TSA workers are “just doing their job.”
Anyone who would do such things is either immoral, amoral, a flaming faggot, a Marxist or a Moslem. No Christian, no Jew and no decent person would do such things. The flying public is not one iota safer because of these stupid practices. These rules are not legislated, not voted for, not representative of us in any way. They are dictatorial edicts issued from on high, and they are totally unrepresentative of the people.
We no longer have government of the people, by the people and for the people; what we have now is rulers.

"How many non-Moslems have blown themselves up to kill others, blown up a plane or hijacked one and flown it into a building, just to kill “infidels”?" Actually, quite a few of them!!!! What about Timothy McVeigh? If you look at the instances of aircraft hijackings of the last 25 years in the US, the Jihadist hijackings form a small minority. A hijacked plane does not care if it is a Jihadist, anarchist, or any other plain criminal is hijacking it. It gets hijacked all the same. Can you guarantee that no White Christian American will never ever hijack a plane? How about we extend this "profiling" into all fields of law enforcement? Most street shooting are committed by blacks, so why not stop blacks randomly to check for weapons? Taking it even further, the gay hate crimes are committed by one group only, fundamentalist Christians of Caucasian origin and no other. Why not profile them for protection of gays? Is that how law enforcement is supposed to work? You are just nuts. There is no profile involved here, just out and out discrimination based on religion, which is illegal. You will just have to live with the "groping". Of course, you can boycott all the airlines and travel by your truck. No one is stopping you.

From: Vic Biorseth
I know this will shock you, but Timothy McVeigh was no Jihadist. Nor did he commit suicide. Nor did he expect to go the heaven, collect his umpty-ump virgins and screw his brains out for all eternity. Nor was he a good Christian. Nor did he have any religious motives for what he did.
I can guarantee that no white Christians will ever commit Jihadism.
Profiling should be extended into all fields of law enforcement.
The reason that “hate” crimes are committed by non-minorities is that “hate” crimes are written expressly to omit minorities from the possibility of committing a hate crime. Hate crimes are written expressly to oppress and punish non-minority members, in a direct conflict with the American founding principle of equal treatment before the law.
The statement that “gay hate crimes” are committed solely by fundamentalist Christians is a flagrant lie.
Islam is not merely a religion; it is an aggressive, invasive and belligerent theocracy that intends to impose itself on the whole world by force.
slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and
besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they
repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to
them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
– Koran Sura 9:5.
Islam is a radical combination of Church and State that intends, toward the other, to convert them, subjugate them or kill them. That is a simple fact of Islam.
Date: Sat Apr 28 04:50:36 2012
"I can guarantee that no white Christians will ever commit Jihadism." True enough, but can you be absolutely sure that not a single one of them would ever commit an act of terrorism?? Jihadism is not the only form of terrorism, as I pointed out earlier. McVeigh did commit an act of outright terrorism, what he got or expected is immaterial. How could profiling have stopped that? And could you possibly explain your statement "Profiling should be extended into all fields of law enforcement" please? Are you agreeing with my take on blacks and violence in the streets, for example? "

From: Vic Biorseth
First, permit me to apologize for my absence of some days; I have been fighting and ultimately conquering a particularly bad computer virus that stopped all work on my website for a number of days.
Regarding “guarantees” of safety from all forms of terrorism: there is no such thing. The world has always had various kinds of aberrant and unpredictable behavior, and it is likely that condition will continue. Perfection is not of this world, but the next.
Jihadism is the current form of terrorism threatening America, Western civilization and all of the non-Islamic world. I submit that Jihadism is an organized form of terrorism and of war, and that the organization of it is of global scope. It is most certainly worthy of global attention. There is simply no comparison between global Jihadism and the occasional Timothy McVeigh.
Profiling is already used in criminal investigation and forensic science. Serial killers, and all sorts of criminals show patterns discernable enough to present useful profiles. Not profiling is stupid; in the case of Jihadism, suicidally so. If all of the Islamic terrorists who have committed acts of terrorism against America are of Middle-Eastern or African ethnicity, then, it should be a simple matter of common sense for security forces to pay particular attention to people of Middlel-Eastern or African ethnicity. Profiling has been working for Israel for quite some time now; there is no reason that it should not work equally well for us.
As for stopping all blacks to check for weapons, I would never do such a thing to any American citizens. Foreign Moslems, perhaps; Americans born and raised here, no. As far as other crimes are concerned, everyone of any color with half a brain has already moved out of and far away from American inner cities and left them to their typical Democrat Party Socialist utopianism.

American Constitutional Doom: Our own political process is destroying us. American Constitutional Doom made inevitable by parasitic enemies within America.
The Democracy-Open Society problem: Does it spell doom for Democracy? The "Redirection" and the increasingly Open Society born of Democracy. Inevitable chaos?
Warning all bourgeoisie: Obama will destroy the middle class. Take fair warning all bourgeoisie, i.e., members of our vast middle class: the Marxists despise you and intend to conquer you once and for all.
In support of American Nationalism and American Patriotism. American Nationalism and American Patriotism have been demonized long enough.
Are our federal bureaucracies all malignant outgrowths of Marxism? Any extra-Constitutional government agency is likely to be a malignant outgrowth of Marxism.
Three fatal oversights of the top conservative cognizanti: Glenn, Rush and Sean. Beck, Limbaugh and Hannity are on the right track, but just nibbling around the edges of who the enemy is.
It’s Liberty versus Marxism and Islam, which cannot coexist with Liberty. Liberty versus Marxism and Islam: the epic contest of this historic era.
Can we outlaw Islam in the USA and still be a free thinking society? I say we can and should outlaw any ideology that seeks the elimination of Constitutional America.

Fasttrack Fairtax: Stop income tax until repeal of Amendment XVI. Fasttrack Fairtax: Legislate to not collect income tax and pass FairTax.

Current American Political Landscape: Our Two Parties and their Positions. The Thinking Catholic looks at Issues and Parties for the Catholic American Thinker.
Against diversity for the sake of diversity. Why do Marxists always seek more? Our argument against diversity for the sake of diversity, which weakens and ultimately replaces ideology and ethos.
Opposing affirmative action / equal opportunity programs as racist. Affirmative action (racial preference) requires racial exclusion, which is, definitively, racism.
Are we really a racist culture, or are our blacks just a bunch of crybabies? If America has produced more black self-made millionaires than any or all other nations, then, how is it that America is seen to be a racist nation?
New "race and racism" thread begun by Stephen from VT. On race and racism: the ever changing definition and generic usage of the word "racism."
Athenaeum courses consistently taught that the early Church condoned slavery. This teaching is clearly false. Yet the Athenaeum of Ohio LPMP program, in multiple courses, officially taught that the Church "changed" its teaching on slavery.
Toward a definition of a distinct American People: American National Existence. What makes us a distinct American People? The way we look? Or is it someing inside us, that defines American national existence?
Argument against National Health Care, which is, in fact, Socialized Medicine. National Heath Care equals Socialized Medicine, pure and simple. Medical Practice is beyond the scope of government and not what our government is constituted to do.

The Global Village concept seeks to replace National Sovereignty by default. Marxian "Global Village-ism" makes major inroads among outlaws, and among elitist intellectuals.
We argue against income minimums and caps, and for a free and private market. Income minimums and caps are Marxism’s “moral” bait to gain popular support for Socialism on the path to typical Marxist absolute dictatorship.
True, the world oil supply is limited; but, so are the stars in the universe. "The world oil supply is cruising toward depletion" is the Chicken-Little call from the Left. But it ain't necessarily so.
Marxists and Moslems: The Last Barbarians. The last barbarians not yet converted or conquered by Western civilization are Marxists and Moslems.
Our argument against fads, fashions, popular trends and herd instinct. If speaking against fads makes me square, un-cool or un-hip, then so be it. All fads are, in microcosm, expressions of rebellion against tradition.
