Hijackers

Every September 11th since 2002, we have stopped and taken time to remember what happened the morning of September 11th, 2001. We all know WHAT happened. We all take to social media now and tell our stories. Talk radio describes how they reported on the planes hitting the World Trade Center. They speak about how they thought maybe it was an accident, but then when the second plane hit it was clear we were under attack. We all know what happened.

What we seem banned from talking about is WHY it happened. At least, we’re not allowed to tell the truth about why it happened.

The forces of political correctness tell their stories. It was because of our military intervention in the Middle East. It was because they are poor. It was because we support the apartheid state of Israel. Just days after the attack, President George W. Bush lost a great deal of respect I had gained for him in the preceding days when he said “Islam is peace.”

Spare me.

There are lots of poor people in the world. There are lots of places the US has conducted military operations. And Muslims in Israel enjoy more freedoms than anywhere else in the Middle East. All of these excuses are pure baloney, constructs of the Left who doesn’t want to utter the truth.

The problem is simple. The problem is Islam.

I’m not saying all Muslims are violent. However, the automatic excuse by the Left is that the 9-11 hijackers and other Muslim terrorists is that they are extremists and they do not represent the religion as a whole. Well if that’s the case, how is it that so many extremists are allowed to run rampant?

Let’s table that for a moment. Here’s my standard for how well someone is following their religion. In my religion, Christianity, we strive to be as much as the founder of our religion, Christ, as possible. So, that’s my standard.

Who follows Islam best? Those that follow the teachings and example of Muhammed. Guess what? ISIS, Al Queda, Boko Haram, and other Muslim terrorist organizations practice Islam in the same way Muhammed did. Don’t believe me? Do some research. Maybe at some point I’ll feel like giving you a full history lesson, but not today.

One of our closest Muslim “friends,” Saudi Arabi, practices Islam so that women are treated as property. Rape victims are punished. Women aren’t allowed to drive cars. Homosexuality is punishable by death. The Left defends these people to no end, and yet they lambast Christians who don’t want to bake a cake as “hateful bigots.”

Back to the majority of Muslims being peaceful. If the majority of “peaceful” Muslims are those represented by countries like Saudi Arabia, are they really peaceful? They encourage violence. Maybe they aren’t all planting bombs, but it’s not like they are champions of human rights either. And lest we forget, 15 of the 19 9-11 hijackers were Saudis, as was Osama bin Laden. Not to mention that all Muslims pay the “zakat” which is basically the Muslim version of tithing, and much of that money goes to funding terror. So, in a way, most if not all of them are complicit in some way.

There are a number of good books you can read analyzing Islam. God’s War on Terror is a must read for Christians. It Is About Islam by Glenn Beck is another.

Bottom line, the attacks of 16 years ago, not to mention the thousands of smaller terrorist attacks since then, were about Islam. We’ve forgotten that. Until we remember, and are willing to call evil what it is, then we are and will remain at a huge disadvantage. I haven’t forgotten. Why have so many? The answer is simple. The plague of political correctness has forced us to forget this fundamental truth, and it needs to be confronted as the evil it is.

Liz Wheeler on the most disgusting part of the Jussie Smollett scandal

There are plenty of things about the Jussie Smollett scandal that should disgust us. The instant reaction by celebrities, politicians, and the media is right there at the top, especially when we consider how many are now saying, “let’s wait for the facts.” The notion that a successful gay black man thought it appropriate to make himself seem like a victim is also up there.

As One America News Network’s Liz Wheeler points out, we should also be disgusted that Smollett chose this victim status over being a strong leader and role model for less privileged black and gay people who could have looked up to him for his strength instead of now being scornful of his weakness.

What does that say about America when the left tries so hard to build the narrative that everything is wrong, they’re unwilling to recognize the real problems that are plaguing America. Why? Because they’re the biggest part of the problem.

Leftist media pushes back on Green New Deal criticism

Leftist media pushes back on Green New Deal criticism

It’s been an up-and-down couple of weeks for proponents of the Green New Deal. Before details were released, it was already being heralded as the greatest thing since President Obama’s election. Then, the details came out and even many on the left were taken aback by the ambitious and incoherent provisions of the deal as detailed in a FAQ section on Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s government web page.

But that was just a draft. They took it down. At least that was the story.

Unfortunately for proponents, they were caught a little flat-footed as questions started pouring in about, well, all of it. Even if we dismiss the less-draconian concepts such as eliminating air travel or the less-sane ideas like taking care of those who are unwilling to work, the left is still stuck with a proposal that the most frugal estimates put at costing around $7 trillion while other’s consider the decade-long cost to be in the HUNDREDS of trillions of dollars.

This is, of course, ludicrous. There’s not enough money in the entire world to pay for the proposal if its cost is somewhere between the lowest and highest estimates, but that hasn’t stopped leftist media from regrouping. Now that the dust has settled a little bit, they’re doing everything they can to recommit to this concept. It’s not that they suddenly believe in this fairy tale. It’s that they don’t want this to be the issue Republicans attack in the 2020 elections.

One article in particular that I read from CNN (yes, sometimes I need to see what the other side is thinking) really struck me for its honesty about the situation. Though I stopped reading it in paragraph two when it referred to “non-partisan” PolitiFact, I went back to it just now to digest the awfulness fully (see the sacrifices I make for our readers!).

To be clear, much of what this article says is correct. It asserts the GOP will take the tenets of the Green New Deal and use it to scare voters into thinking it’s even worse than Obamacare. From 2010 through 2016, Republicans attacked Obamacare incessantly and it worked, giving them the House in 2010, the Senate in 2014, and the White House in 2016. Unfortunately, they stopped there and didn’t actually go after Obamacare with the same fervor they held in their campaign rhetoric and now the Democrats have turned the issue on its head.

But here’s the thing. Obamacare may have been bad, but the Green New Deal truly is worse. It’s not even close. Even if we take at face value the notion that the Green New Deal is simply an ambitious framework around which real legislation can be forged, we have to look at the core issues entailed in order to see the true damage it can do. This is a socialist document. It’s a call for the same levels of insanity that drive the Medicare-for-All movement. Within its frivolous attempts to change perceptions of air travel, cows, and job creation is a deep-rooted desire to convert Americans to needing more government.

NOQ Report needs your support.

The Green New Deal represents the far-left’s desire to make more American dependent on government. At the same time, it aims to increase the levels of dependency for those who are already in need of assistance. It wants Democrats to latch their wagons on the notion that if we become a militantly environmentalist nation, that will serve the dual purpose of giving us fulfillment while saving the planet.

I believe most leftist journalists understand this, but they see in the ridiculous framework a path through which Republicans can be defeated wholesale in 2020 as long as the left can control the narrative surrounding the Green New Deal. They fear another Obamacare counterinsurgency that would wipe out the anti-Trump gains they made in 2018, so they’ve adopted a stance that the Green New Deal isn’t as bad as Fox News says it is. Meanwhile, they’re doing everything they can to say, “look over here and not at the Green New Deal.”

The politics behind what the Green New Deal represents is more in play than the tenets of the proposal itself, at least in the eyes of leftist media. It’s not that they want to promote the concept. They simply don’t want the concept to derail their party in the next election.

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as ‘sweetheart,’ prompting zero outrage

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as sweetheart prompting zero outrage

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan referred to Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as “Sweetheart” as he addressed her during a speaking engagement on Sunday. He apparently caught his faux pas and immediately justified the remark, but at that point the moniker which many consider to be sexist or misogynistic had already been noted.

Nevertheless, it didn’t cause the stir one might expect. As a far-left progressive, Omar is known for being a feminist icon on Capitol Hill even though she hasn’t been in office for a full two months yet. As our EIC noted, the lack of a rebuke was because of the source, not because she now feels it’s okay to refer to her as “sweetheart.”

The statement came as Farrakhan was telling Omar she shouldn’t be sorry for the statements she made last week about Israel, AIPAC, and Jewish influence in Washington DC, particularly over Republicans.

In a world where consistency was still considered a virtue, followers of Omar would be wondering why she’s not expressing outrage over the belittling reference from a powerful man. But the world isn’t consistent and Farrakhan always gets a pass.
