Switzerland: Muslim preacher to be jailed then deported

Zurich, Switzerland -- a Muslim hate preacher who called for the burning of non-devout Muslims is to be sent to prison and then deported. 

A district court in Zurich has given a Muslim preacher accused of violence a mere 18 months in prison and ordered the 25-year-old Ethiopian to be deported and banned from re-entering Switzerland for 15 years, after which time, he can start all over again.

The lunatic preacher was tried for calling for the immolation of Muslims who aren't as religious as he is in their worship. "No zabiba (forehead prayer callous), you die."

Religious Muslims pray five times a day, which is one reason they rarely create anything useful for society. By all this praying, with their foreheads to the ground, they develop a prayer callous on their forehead of which they are very proud because that's a big accomplishment in their way of thinking.

Anyway, police arrested the crap weasel in October 2016 after receiving reports of the controversial sermon he gave at the An'Nur mosque in Winerthur, in northeast Switzerland. The schizophrenic idiot also distributed photos of executions online  and violating labor regulations by working without a permit.

"His religious views represent a danger to the public," the prosecution told the court, referring to his literally following the teachings in the Quran and Hadith.

The lunatic's lawyers told the court: "He was merely an unsuspecting asylum seeker who had only been in Switzerland for three months. He is no fanatical Muslim."

Sure, and Islam is the religion of peace, Mohammad was a nice guy who loved Jews and other infidels and Muslim husbands only beat their wives lightly when they disobey.

The An'Nur mosque has long been suspected of preaching terror jihad with their youth, and media has reported that some have traveled to Syria to fight for jihad.

A police raid last November uncovered four suspected illegal immigrants.

Then three months later, ten Muslims from the mosque were arrested after allegations that they attacked and imprisoned two other people in the mosque who they believed had spoken to reporters.

The mosque's governors have repeatedly lied about the allegations of radicalization and links to terrorist groups. And an Islamist culture organization criticized the media last year for telling the truth. They called it "inciting hatred against the mosque."

Hey, idiots, you cannot hate a building.

Trump handed historic victory

Thanks to a Republican and a Democrat, President Trump is kicking federal judiciary butt while Al Franken is grabbing butt and telling us how sad it makes him feel.

We don't care how you feel, Al. Your feelings don't matter.

Anyway, the Republican to whom Trump owes a thank you is Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). The senator is the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and has just used that clout to get rid of one of the final hurdles regarding judicial appointments to the federal bench.

Specifically, last week Grassley decided not to hold u hearings for judicial nominees who aren't first cleared by their own home state senators. This is a Senate tradition known as "blue slip courtesy" that originated at a period in our history before communication technology and the state senator had access to much more information than the rest of the nation.

Grassley noted that Democrats were trying to use the blue slips tradition to replace the filibuster that their fellow Democrat, now retired, Harry Reid made possible by killing the filibuster rules. (Yes, Reid is the Democrat that President Trump should thank.) So Grassley gifted Trump with the ability to appoint federal judges. 

This comes at a time when the media is covering stories about Trump's difficulties working with Congress, especially Senators Bob Corker, Jeff Flake and John McCain. This, of course, is understandable  because it's unprecedented for a president to feud as much as Trump has with his own party this early in his presidency.

And unless the Democrats can win the Senate majority in 2018, there is nothing they can do about it.

It's obvious that Trump is going to take the credit for the appointments, but that's okay--it's what presidents do.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


Judge rules Seattle's tax on the wealthy is illegal

"How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin." -- Ronald Reagan
Seattle is one of the most liberal (read 'socialist') cities in America. Their controversial tax on the wealthy (akin to "You make too much money--I want some of it") failed its first legal test after a judge ruled the new ordinance violates state law. But the progressives (read 'socialists') aren't backing down and pledge to appeal the decision. This sets up a Washington State Supreme Court case.

Judge John Ruhl of King County Superior Court ruled Wednesday that the city did not have the authority (including moral authority, but that's a different story) to impose the tax because state law prohibits tax on net income.

City Attorney Pete Holmes (no known relation to porn star John Holmes, but what John did with women, Pete is trying to do to the wealthy in Seattle) said the decision was "disappointing" but, in a joint statement with Seattle Mayor Tim Burgess (which, coincidentally came while both men were smoking 'joints') said their goal to eliminate the state's "over-reliance on regressive sales taxes" would continue [and so would their immoral attempt to bleed successful people for more of their money].

"We are also living in a time of extreme income inequality that corrodes our social compact and causes many to wonder whether wealthy individuals are paying their fair share," the socialists said.

You want fair share? The fairest of fair shares would be for every single taxpayer to pay the same percentage of their income in taxes, like a church tithe--that's a fair share. Everyone has skin in the game and everyone pays the same percentage.

The whole idea of the progressive's concept of fair share is not fair at all. In fact, as I said, it's immoral.

Opponents of the tax said the ruling is proof that Seattle officials knew the tax was legally flawed by still tried to push it through.

"In our system of government, the Legislature makes laws and the courts interpret them," Freedom Foundation Chief Litigation Counsel David Dewhirst told Fox News in a written statement. "If you want to change the existing tax laws, you can ask your legislator to introduce a bill, or you can sponsor a ballot initiative. And if you want to amend the Constitution, there's a process for that too."

The tax was passed by the Seattle City Council in July. It targets successful people who've worked hard to get to the income level they're at. Local lawmakers say the tax is "a new formula for fairness."

Of course, the opposite is true when you break it down in simple terms: you want to take more from me and redistribute it to people who haven't worked for it. 

I'll say it again: that's immoral.



Earthbound asteroid will graze us next month

Don't you just hate it when an asteroid strikes Earth and wipes out all life? Well don't worry--it isn't going to happen . . . just yet, but there will probably come a time when it will.

Anyway, a huge, 3-mile-wide asteroid is diddy bopping its way through the galaxy and heading in our way. It will graze Earth on December 17th, but will not hit us . . . this go around. 

The asteroid is named "3200 Phaethon" after the Greek god, and it will come quite close in astronomical terms.

The Russian astronomers [with the possible help of Michael Flynn] have been tracking this baby's path, which NASA describes as a "potentially hazardous asteroid."

If it hits us it's 'goodbye to Momma,' as I once heard a Gunny Sergeant tell his men in Vietnam during a mortar attack near our liquid oxygen converters. The converters, (aka 'LOX Converters') provides oxygen to pilots at high altitude and they make quite a fireball if hit, much like the Earth would if an asteroid hit us.

However, the asteroid will pass us by at only 2 million miles--practically a kiss on the cheek in astronomical terms.

It is about half the size of the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs, not counting those that still exist in the Democratic Party.

The first asteroid Ceres, was discovered in 1801 by Giuseppe Piazzi. There are about 600,000 asteroids in our solar system and they orbit the sun. 

The 3200 Phaethon asteroid is special as it has aspects of both an asteroid and a comet. Scientists previously spotted plumes of dust from behind it, which is quite similar to the melting ice tails that trail comets.

The Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University, in Konigsberg, Russia, which first began tracking the asteroid said in a statement, "Apparently, this asteroid was once a much bigger object." But of course, they said it in Russian and went on to add, "But its many approaches to the sun have caused it to crumble into smaller pieces which eventually formed this meteor shower."

Keep your fingers crossed.


WaPo reporter bagged in liberal plotting with George Soros

"Democracy dies in darkness" -- New York Post
"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on" -- Sir Winston Churchill 
In the old days, a newspaper could be counted on for being somewhat honest, somewhat unbiased. Now, not so much.

The Washington Post, an allegedly unbiased newspaper, is just such parakeet cage liner. Their unbiased reporter Janell Ross spoke at a meeting of liberal (aka socialist) influencers last week. 

The Democratic donors included socialist billionaire George Soros, a man who has given enormous donations to such groups as ACORN, Apollo Alliance, La Raza, Planned Parenthood, People for the American Way, Southern Poverty Law Center and Huffington Post, just to name a few.

The Post told the Washington Free Beacon that Ross attended the California event "without notifying her superiors that she would be attending."

Does anyone who believes that here want to buy a beautiful bridge in Brooklyn?

The host, Democracy Alliance, touts itself on its website as "the largest network of donors dedicated to building the progressive movement in the United States." The claim to "play a leading role in fostering the infrastructure necessary to advance a progressive agenda" in the United States.

And because they are so noble in their progressive/socialist/communist agenda, the group intended to keep "the identities of its members and guests confidential," according to the Beacon. However, the paper was able to obtain a "detailed conference agenda that lists both events and featured guests."

When the Beacon revealed the identities of the attendees, the group scrambled to beef up security and asked the participants to keep details off social media. 

Which makes it sound a bit like an evil plot to destroy truth, justice and the American way.

Ross, who was once upon a time a slightly impartial reporter for the Post, was one of the guests, and didn't let on to the paper that she was attending the uber liberal planning session and hanging out with leftists such as Soros.

Ross' panel aimed at helping socialist attendees get "the economic narrative right." In other words, she and her panel discussed talking points for the American public to swallow hook, line and sinker. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) also spoke about Russian interference in the 2016 election.

According to Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor, this was a "classic example" of journalism "openly coordinating with the alt-left" to take down Conservatives.

Gainor spoke to Fox News and told them that "Someone should introduce reporter Janell Ross and her boss Marty Baron to the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics. It appears they haven't read it , or any other text on journalistic ethics. Funny, the movie 'Spotlight' portrays Baron as a big advocate of legitimate journalism. Can't wait for the sequel that shows the Post for what it really is, the research and reporting arm of the left."

Ross has been known to be anti-Trump and even put him in the same category as O.J. Simpson.

Attendees of the secret meeting each pledged to donate a minimum of $20,000 to advance its evil agenda. Yes, it's evil--when someone wants to take the money you've earned and hand it over to others who haven't worked for it, that's evil.

The secret meeting lasted three days at the La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, California. They were there to plot their 2018 'resistance' and game plan, according to the Beacon

Soros (whose name is a palindrome) was introduced by video message from future president wannabe Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and the mentally challenged Democratic Minority Leader Nancy "Sign-it-First" Pelosi. 

It was like a "behind the curtain, Wizard of Oz moment" as Soros' face made human-like sounds.

"We've only now learned about her participation in this event," a Washington Post representative told the Beacon, when asked about Eoss' involvement. The spokesperson added that Ross has been "reminded" that the Post "discourages" participation in events that may be "perceived as partisan."

But they are and they have lots of company. 


Two more women accuse Franken of inappropriate touching

Oy, not again
Two more women, not familiar with each other, have come forward and told the Huffington Post that Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) touched their buttocks in separate buttock touching incidents. This brings the sexual misconduct incident allegations against Al Franken to four, so far.

Radio host Leeann Tweeden wrote last week that Franken kissed and groped her without her consent during a 2006 USO tour.

On Monday, Lindsay Menz said Franken groped her butt at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010, after being elected as a senator.

The two women had remarkably similar stories and both spoke on condition of anonymity out of fear of repercussions. Both had also been telling their stories over the years, which lends credibility to them.

In a sweat-stained statement to HuffPost, Franken said, "It's difficult to respond to anonymous accusers, and I don't remember those campaign events."

The first woman, a 38-year-old book editor who lived in Minneapolis at the time said Franken groped her when they posed for a photo after a June 2007 event hosted by the Minnesota Women's Political Caucus in Minneapolis. She wanted a photo with Franken because her mother "loves him" and wanted to give her the photo.

Two women close to the first woman corroborated her story.

"My story is eerily similar to Lindsay Menz's story," she said. "He grabbed my buttocks during a photo op."

The second woman said that weird Al cupped her butt with his hand at a 2008 Democratic fundraiser in Minneapolis. He also suggest they visit the bathroom together.

"My immediate reaction was disgust," the second woman said. "But my secondary reaction was disappointment. I was excited to be there and to meet him. And so to have that happen really deflated me. It felt like: 'Is this really the person who is going to be in a position of power to represent our community'"

Franken  told HuffPost, "I can categorically say that I did not proposition anyone to join me in any bathroom." 

Okay, so he calls it a 'washroom.'

The first woman said that Franken is a "serial groper" and that's why she wanted to tell her story. "Only two people have come forward and people are saying that this is a right-wing conspiracy," she said. "It's not. I'm not a liberal person. ... I voted for him after this happened."

The second woman, who said she was groped at a fundraiser, said it took place in the fall of 2008 at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis. She was excited about attending the event. She was looking forward to looking to meeting someone she wanted to support.

"I had never attended anything like that," she said. 

She and her friends found Franken and introduced themselves to him.

"I shook his hand, and he put his arm around my waist and held it there," the second woman said. "Then he moved it lower and cupped my butt. I was completely mortified."

Franken is such a classy guy.

The woman had to escape Franken's clutches by excusing herself to go to the bathroom. It was then that he leaned in and suggested that he go with her. She grabbed a friend and ran to the bathroom leaving Franken behind, all sweaty and disgusting.

Since the incident, the woman told several people about what happened but didn't want to report it at the time.

I felt like I didn't have a voice," she began. "This man had all of the power, all of the authority. In addition, he is a white man and I am a woman of color. I was 21 years old. And I was afraid that he would use all of those privileges to discredit me, to make me feel even smaller than I already felt."

Now she's more confident thanks in large part to the many women who have come forward to share stories of sexual harassment by men in power.

What Franken is alleged to have done is not as bad as what Roy Moore is alleged to have done, but in both cases a power dynamic is clear. Also, in both cases the allegations of both men's behavior seem true based on corroborative accounts by the alleged victims.

Should Franken and Moore resign?

I believe they should and I also believe the names of others who have been protected with secrecy need to be made public. We pay their salaries; they work for us, it's time to take our government back from the politicians, even if we have to 'clean house' and Senate.

500 German police arrest 6 suspected Syrian terrorists

On Tuesday morning, 500 German police officers on an anti-terror raid, detained six Angela Merkel sanctioned Syrian refugees suspected of fighting for ISIS.

Authorities say they were planning a terror attack six days before Christmas and the attack, they believe, was to target a Christmas market, because that's what those scum wafers do and Germany keeps taking them in.

Six Syrian Muslim men between the ages of 20 and 28 were taken into custody, Frankfurt prosecutors said. About 500 police officers were involved in the raids of eight apartments in the cities of Kassel, Hanover, Essen and Leipzig.

The prosecutors said the men are suspected of "planning an attack with weapons or explosives on a public target in Germany." The men had not yet finished preparing for the attack.

Four suspects entered Germany in 2014 as asylum-seekers; two arrived in 2015, Deutsche -Welle reported. Authorities were tipped off by refugees about the men--they were reportedly active ISIS fighters in Syria.

The German newspaper Welt, reported findings from the attorney general of Frankfurt explaining that the Syrian scumspects are ISIS supporters. They were arrested on suspicion of membership in a terrorist organization and preparation of a terrorist attack.

Thank you Angela.

Joe Barton is just a jerk, not a miscreant

Rep. Joe Barton (R- TX) is yet another alleged slimeball with an enlarged prostate in a position of power. The internet was graced with photos of his junk along with text messages this week.

"While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women," he redundantly said in a statement. [If they're mature, they're adults.] "Each was consensual. Those relationships have ended."

Barton added, "I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. I am sorry that I let my constituents down."

An anonymous account tweeted a censored photo of a nude dude and suggested it was Barton, who is now 68. The tweet also showed a screenshot of a text message from "Joe B" using strong, suggestively sexual language.

Barton apologized for the explicit photo, not denying that it was his 'brain override organ" in the tweet, but he also said that he wouldn't resign.

Barton is the longest-serving member of the Texas House delegation and he just announced his 18th congressional campaign.

What about term limits for all these clowns?

One question raised is whether Barton is actually a victim of a crime. It went public at a time when the country grapples with sexual harassment issues among a number of lawmakers and scumquats in Hollywood.

Barton said the photo was taken in a consensual relationship and it wasn't he who posted it on the web. He may be a victim of a crime under Texas law intended to protect against the release of intimate materials.

Texas legislators passed a "revenge porn law" in 2015 criminalizing the act of intentionally disclosing pictures or videos "depicting another person with the person's intimate parts exposed or engaged in sexual conduct," without their consent.

It was later discovered that Barton told a woman with whom he sent sexually explicit photos, videos and messages that he would report her to Capitol Police if she went public with any of the material The Washington Post reported late Wednesday.

The anonymous woman provided The Post with a recorded phone call in which Barton admitted that if their relationship was exposed, he would tell investigators that "I had a three-year undercover relationship with you over the Internet that was heavily sexual and that I had met you on two different occasions and that I exchanged inappropriate photographs and videos with you that I wouldn't like to be seen made public, that you still apparently had all of those and were in a position to use them in a way that would negatively affect my career."

Barton had not immediately responded to The Post

The woman told The Post that she posted the images because she felt Barton was "manipulative and dishonest and misleading" in his relationship with her and with other women.

"It's not normal for a member of Congress who runs on a GOP platform of family values and conservatism to be scouring the Internet looking for a new sexual liaison," she told the press.

Apparently, she's wrong.

But in Barton's defense, this was a consensual relationship and just because he apparently is a jerk, it does not give her the right to post those photos on Twitter just for revenge. It isn't the same thing as what we've been seeing in Hollywood and on Capitol Hill.

It isn't a case of sexual misconduct, or a crime--it's a case of a woman's wrath.

Beware of a woman's wrath.
