The election this fall is not about Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Taliban, or other security. It will not be about most of the items the media is talking about. What it is about is the economy, jobs, employment, wages, and everything about the economy but not in the obvious ways being discussed. Where will this next Presidency balance? The main item is which way does it benefit the United States most, continuing internationalism or returning to nationalism.

 

The media and most politicians are pushing this global economy, global integration, global cooperation, global solutions while hiding a dirty little secret, they are selling global as the solution while having the United States and the advanced nations pay for everything while equalizing the global playing field, whatever that means. We had a debate last night and we heard more of the same. Clinton claimed more globalism and taxes on the rich and Trump tried and may have meant to sound like Reagan. What they were not telling the people is that Clinton was using the same internationalism where the world matters more than the United States so in order to equalize the world the United States and the advanced world has to bleed to allow the rest of the world to catch up and then all will be well and how wonderful the world can be. Trump is actually claiming that every nation take their own and put them first and attempt to allow the nations who are leading the world to continue to be the leaders and then assist other nations in making gains and follow and give them access to advances as they are able to implement these advances. So, which way will work best. That depends on which nations one decides should be permitted to advance their own interests than to share with the world.

 

Internationalism is wonderful if your country is on the receiving end and not so wonderful if you are being bled to bring the other nations up to their level. The problem with that are many of these nations that are presumably being given advances in order to raise them to the same level are led by dictators who are enriching themselves and not making their nations any closer to the advanced world as that does not directly benefit them. What these dictators are not being intelligent about is that had they advanced their nation they would have enriched themselves in the process. They are not even thinking nationally rather than internationally. Internationally is a recipe for disaster as it inhibits the leaders from leading and demands that the least efficient be granted the largess while the leaders are placed in financial straight-jackets. Internationalists place a stop sign where all nations must park their own business and park their nation by the side of the highway and wait for the rest of the world to reach an equal position. The problem is that many of these nations, which they are waiting for to reach the same point, are themselves broken and not gaining and will never catch up as they are not even making any effort to reach the next level. Internationalism believes that making all nations equal will solve the world’s problems and inequalities, despite it not ever bringing the rest of the nations to first world status.

Nationalism is the opposite view which allows each nation to advance at their own rate and still demands that the first world assist the developing nation but does not demand they try to make equal those nations so dysfunctional that they are the closest thing to an economic black hole as can be found. Nationalism rewards each nation for their efforts and allows each nation to gain at their own speed. Allowing the leaders to lead gives other nations a target and proven path they can emulate but without national gain by the wealthiest nations to blaze the trail for the others to follow. The basis for nationalism is it allows each nation to set their own monetary policies and is against unifying monetary policies as such a system is flawed and destroys the lesser productive nations which has been proven by the European Union Euro which has benefited Germany while leaving Greece behind. Nationalism allows each country to do the best for their own people and society. That does not mean that nations which are developing should not be aided and it is in the interest of the most advanced nations to assist those nations who are developing and making the right choices and allowing them to benefit from the experiences of those nations who have traveled those roads before them. But those nations which are completely dysfunctional cannot be assisted as long as their governance is broken and until the nation decides to change their dysfunctions there is no reason to throw good money after bad.

 

Internationalism is a wonderful, feel-good policy filled of kind words and low on actual results. Internationalism demands that all nations be made to give according to their ability and the funds are granted to countries according to their needs. Internationalism demands open borders allowing free immigration with no limits or criminal and other background checks or other limits or restrictions. The policies sound as if they will allow all nations equal opportunities in word while defining this policy as bringing all nations up to the same level and making things fair for all nations. The truth is that this is accomplished by tearing down the greater nations while benefitting some of the least deserving nations who are corrupt criminal enterprises more than they are actual functional nations. Rewarding the worst while impeding the best prevents progress and will constantly restrict progress and the discoveries of new technologies and new systems which would result in assisting those nations seeking a better future to implement the proven methods. To get an idea on the difficulties caused by internationalism there is a perfect example which we can observe, the European Union. How has that equal currency been working for over half of Europe who are not Germany or Britain but are Greece, Spain, Italy and even France and many of the former Warsaw Nations. The common currency has taken the small differences of economic production where the agrarian economies which work on a different production level having to survive with the same policies of the industrial and other highly developed nations.

Permitting each nation to perform at their highest level and to their full potential will set target paths for other nation to follow along the proven road set by the highest performing nations. Progress is the fuel that raises all nations in turn. Progress provides the test paths and allows developing nations to benefit from their more advanced nations but only when they decide to advance. No nation could be forced to grow their economy and advance their national infrastructure and when a nation refuses to advance itself then forcing the rest of the world to wait for such a nation to reach an equative level is ridiculous and counterproductive. Internationalism is wonderful idea if it could function as promised. Nationalism is the dirty sounding word which is accused of being selfish because it benefits the wealthy nations and prevents developing nations from ever reaching the top level. The obvious fault is that accusation is completely false. If nationalism prevented up and coming nations from ever becoming the top nations were true then China would have ruled the world, Spain would be a leading nation, Greece would be the top nation in Europe, Egypt would be the most advanced nation in construction and engineering, Persia would still control East-West trade routes, Portugal would be a great power with colonies throughout the world, and the Hittites would be the great power in the norther worlds of Europe through to Turkey. Top nations change and have changed throughout the history of the world while nationalism was the rule of the world. Internationalism has caused massive stagnation as the world as a whole is not permitted to advance because the leading nations are held back presumably for the benefit of the lesser nations. This will always be a supported philosophy as there will always be more developing and undeveloped nations than leading nations as only a few nations will be in the top ten percent, which is why it is referred to as the top ten percent. Internationalism has been working so well over the past twenty to thirty years since 1979 while the rest of history was pathetic and without economic advancement advances by all nations and we are still using salt as a currency, aren’t we? The progress from salt as money to salt as something on almost every dinner table was a result from nationalism, not internationalism.

 

Compare the two with eyes open and the preferable form, open competition or controlled advancement, the choice could provide opportunity or a slow decadence and eventual decimation. Internationalism is welfare on an international scale much in the form of the Soviet Union and the initial Plymouth Rock Colony which would have starved if not for the Native Americans who grew and hunted for surplus for the winter and had sufficient to teach and feed the Pilgrims. After that experience of all get all they need, while most gave nothing in effort, they introduced a new program where each family kept a percentage of what they grew and the remainder was shared, the amounts of food skyrocketed. That is the balance which nationalism can produce, the most advanced achieve at their highest level and those developing nations learn from those leaders and in time some will replace them as they eventually falter. That is the secret of effort based economies, the people or nations at the top changes with time when another makes decisions which make them even more profitable as the other sinks under likely bureaucratic waste. You decide.

After Jerusalem Comes Rome

 

There was a time around the late 1300’s when there was this concept that Constantinople was the third holiest city in Islam and as such had to be conquered and the Christian stain blotted out. Finally, in 1453 Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II after a fifty plus day siege and the implementation of a number of huge siege cannons which finally broke through one of the weaker points of the great city’s walls, walls that had withstood every pounding which had come before and barely showed a scratch. Constantinople had repulsed repeated Muslim assaults from the 7th century onward. Its triangular site made it all but impregnable. Two sides were surrounded by sea, and the third landward side was commanded by the great Walls of Theodosius, a massive defensive barrier four miles long and many yards wide and tall even at its weakest points. This was the greatest bastion in the medieval world. In a thousand years the city had been besieged some twenty plus times, yet none had been able to crack open those land-filled walls. The largest of the huge siege cannons used by Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II fired projectiles of stone weighing as much as 1,500 pounds, three-quarters of a ton, and measured two and a half to three feet in diameter depending on the particular cannon. These stone spheres were mined and shaped on the north coast of the Black Sea and transported to the cannons by barges. The largest of the cannons was no less impressive with a length of twenty-seven feet and a barrel wall a full eight inches of solid bronze to absorb the force of the blast. The blasting through the walls of Constantinople signified the end of the wall as a means of preventing a determined attacker. After Constantinople fell and was renamed Istanbul and the Hagia Sophia transformed into a mosque, the third holiest city in Islam had been conquered and settled down to a less noble designation, it was merely the capital of the Ottoman Empire now.

One need understand that when Constantinople was the third holiest city in Islam, Jerusalem was already occupied by Muslims thus was just a sideshow in an inhospitable land. The Temple Mount had been used often as a place to dump trash and things unwanted. Now with Constantinople comfortably called Istanbul and Jerusalem not under Islamic rule, Jerusalem has become the third holiest city in Islam. With time one of two end results over Jerusalem will be the result. Either the world will have used their combined militaries against Israel in order to establish the Arab faux-nation of Palestine on the grave of the Jewish State or, the preferred solution, the world tires of the incessant deadlock and washes their collective hands of the entire mess and Israel reestablishes herself to the promised borders as denoted in San Remo and countless places since; and Jerusalem returns to its rightful place as the capital city it has only ever been, the capital of the Jewish state of Israel. This eventuality may not be as distant as many believe as there may become a situation where it serves Islam to choose a new third holiest site in Islam as another of their list of prized locations, future third holiest cities or locations in Islam. Paris and London are potential cities for the next to be conquered, also known as third holiest place in Islam. But there is one place, not really a city and a strange place for a country, but this place would replace Jerusalem in a heartbeat if it became a potential place to fall before Islam. The city is Rome, the small nation is the Vatican, and the two would quickly become the third holiest place in Islam if the refugees who are streaming across the Mediterranean Sea from Libya, Tunisia or Algeria continue. Imagine if these refugees making their way to Europe decided that settling in Rome might be a city they could become a significant minority with a high enough percentage of the population that they feel they reached the tipping point and the time was ripe to push the Christians from Rome and start transforming the cathedrals and churches into Mosques and eventually pressing their newly gathered strength and realize their dream of turning St. Peter’s Basilica into the Grand Great Vatican Mosque of Mohammad. It might be Paris or London or Cologne or Winchester and the new mosques would be in Paris La Mosque de Notre Dame; in London it would be Westminster Mosque; in Cologne there might be Hohe Domkirche Mosque, or Mosque of Winchester. Should the future fulfill the future as interpreted by the majority of vocal Imams; then any church, cathedral, temple, synagogue or other religious building could become a mosque with the addition of a single minaret from which the call to prayer can be sounded. Some cathedrals and churches already have a tall tower often a belfry which after removing the bells and installing a high output speaker system capable of blaring out the call to prayer over a distance of a mile or more to be assured that every Muslim would know when the time to pray is upon them. Five times each and every day like clockwork that you could set your watch to and possibly use as your morning alarm clock the call will be made loud and clear, well, at least loud.

The denotation of third holiest site in Islam is adaptable as history has shown. There is no reason why it cannot change as the situation changes and another great city of importance to either the other main religions or other national capital cities, anyplace where Islam desires to make a gain and spend religious capital declaring some location as a great holy place for Islam thus causing more Muslims to relocate to the target city and thus reinforcing their claims eventually leading to their realization becoming established fact. The reason that this is not succeeding with Jerusalem is that living in Gaza or Areas A or B in Judea and Samaria is so unattractive to likely any Muslim almost anywhere outside of those stuck for three or four generations in an Arab refugee camp, a situation perpetuated by their Arab and Muslim brothers and sisters in order to use them as a threat and bludgeon to destroy Israel and a means of generating massive amounts of funding which is siphoned off to buy weapons and explosives for terrorist uses. So, as things stand, their assault to claim Jerusalem is frozen in place which is why should things change, which is happening as the situations throughout Europe are quite fluid with the flood of refugees which the Europeans may have figured out were a threat and attempted inundation and conquest almost too late to put a stopper in the bottle. Still, there are hundreds if not thousands still making their way to Europe by any and every route and means possible from train, car and bus to row boat and rubber dingy to airplane, speed boat or possibly glider if the means were to present itself. Germany and Sweden appeared to be the hardest hit, but France and Italy could not be far behind as they would be the first place the small boats from North Africa would reach and to make things even more troublesome the Italian navy has been plucking Muslims out of the water after their boats sank. Below is one of the least disturbing of the videos as this rescue was simply taking people from a boat which was not going anywhere too fast and the people required a helping hand and the Italian Navy was there to assist. The video also points to one of the bigger problems, the people dealing in getting these people into the Mediterranean often charging hundreds of Euros per person and overcrowding the boat leaving their victims drifting without but a hope and a prayer. The only saving grace they received was from the Italians and they were stuck out in the Mediterranean by their Islamic Brothers.

 

 

The collapse of the Islamic world and their exodus into Europe is in what is a fitting case of being hoist on their own petard, or collecting on their own inflicted hardships foisted on the survivors of the Ottoman Empire with the forming countries which were designed to fail, or at least with no consideration if tribal borders with their mandates and Sykes-Picot. Now those states have collapsed with a little assist, or lack of prevention, by the United States as President Obama set out to prove that the United States had not been a force for good and stability but a force for oppression and degradation. President Obama ended up proving the necessity of a strong United States to hold things in balance and stable while also allowing for the perfidy of the European powers after World War I which perpetuated the problems in Europe leading to World War II and now the collapse of the Islamic Arab world with refugees fleeing into Europe which is economically ill prepared to absorb the flood of refugees, especially as a percentage hidden within are instigators and terror specialists. The experiment performed to prove the United States as an unnecessary evil which needed to be reined in for the world to experience freedom and unparalleled progress and liberation failed and failed so miserably that even President Obama realized he needed to actually redeploy United States Military Forces to the Middle East, though it proved too little too late. The question is has the American public learned anything from the last eight years where the United States wallowed in an economic blasé while the world burned? The election coming up would be a measure of to what extent they might have learned. If their realized the mistake their foreign policy caused, then the election will go against Hillary Clinton who was behind or at least a party to Libya, Benghazi, the Iraq pullout, the Russia reset failure, the Syrian red line fiasco, and the retreat of the United States from the world scene. Prediction? We fear that the American public has largely not even realized their leadership’s responsibility in the mayhem worldwide and will support Hillary Clinton with over 45% and potentially place her into the White House and if so for the full eight years possible. For those who want the worst possible news, if for some reason like being indicted before the Democrat Convention and convicted before the election and forcing the Democrat Party to replace her with their only other rational choice, Bernie Sanders, he would win in a landslide against Donald Trump, or at least that is how we see it. Of course we would not be overly surprised if Hillary would win the election from within a prison cell as without her reminding the public how shrill she usually is the better her chances of winning. Should Hillary win, we will need to answer the question of where will the world be four years hence and will there be any turning back at that point.

The Blindness of the Western Public and Society

 

The good news is there have been some recent indications that a remote few are waking up and the screaming core of those sounding the alarm has finally begun to gain some traction. The bad news is the other side has a near twenty year head start in getting their inroads into our societies and they have made great strides in controlling central institutions which will shape our future. They have implanted their operatives in libraries and specialized in approving and purchasing new books and magazines. They have infiltrated positions approving school books for social sciences, social studies and government studies classes. In all these cases they have blocked any books whose maps do not include Palestine and if possible they choose those who replace Israel with Palestine erasing the Jewish State entirely. They choose books which favorably speak of Islam as a modern and progressive religion which is understanding, open and pluralistic and has established communities where freedom of religion is practiced and women are protected and live lives with privilege and rights to control their own bodies.

 

They have also infiltrated politics at some surprising levels and places including a close aide and trusted advisor to one of the candidates for President of the United States who could become the leader of the free world in January of 2017 should they win in the November balloting. The infiltration of the influences of Islam is not restricted to a single party though it has taken a stronger foothold in one as theirs is a much more attractive medium for influence to grab hold if it is presented with the promise of greater control over the public leading eventually to totalitarian hold by the party most connected to this influence. This is what Islam has promised to all political parties in the West but for reasons which to many who understand Islam appears counter intuitive. The most leftist parties have been the ones adopting and inviting Islamic influences seeking the promise of future greatness and expansive power base leading to permanent controlling election results placing them firmly in control of every lever of power. This is the identical chimera which was the attraction of the socialist, may we even say communist, accepted levels of influence some might claim compromised their standing as representing a true American political view for the future. Trading your core principles to the highest bidder who promises a future of complete and unopposable political control for the foreseeable future is un-American in its own right. Any compromise of the Constitutional guarantees, especially the Bill of Rights, is an unacceptable position for any political entity which portends to represent the American public. As it has been established firmly by numerous academic studies, Sharia is absolutely incompatible with any democratic system of governance including a constitutional democratic republic which is the basis for the governance of the United States under the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights (first Ten Amendments to the Constitution which the states demanded before they agreed to ratification). Any political party compromising such rights and the basic underpinnings of the founding spirit of the United States should be rejected by the public immediately when such becomes evident. Unfortunately such a response from the public is completely dependent on the media reporting honestly, forthrightly, and giving in depth inspection and bordering interrogation of all involved routing out any and all suspicions of errant political influences, especially any foreign influences. This is also not happening for reasons not yet discernable other than much of the mainstream media having political views paralleling those of the afflicted party.

 

The growing influence of Islam is due to their intelligent and determined use of the freedoms of the United States and the cluelessness of much of the media. They report every insistence by the plethora of civic Islamic institutions complaints of Islamophobia and verbal insults of Islam almost weekly if not daily. These reports never follow up that there was no validity or guilt found when the complaints are investigated, though the media is ever ready to report the next cry of Islamophobia. Reporting these cries has become the new favorite cry of racism against the average American and the public at large and many in the media love nothing more than to sink their teeth into how uncouth and uneducated the average American can be shown to exhibit by which the media can then prance using their written lines to sound erudite and thus prove their superior understanding and higher reasoning and educations making them worldly and knowing and nothing brings this to the fore more than the racist label being thrown around. Islamophobia is just such a cry which portrays Americans as rabidly xenophobic, uneducated, narrow-minded and overly patriotically nationalistic. Such an opportunity for pontificating the overly judgmentalism and rejection of a strange and relatively new religion in the United States and to quote President Obama, “it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” This parallel was simply too juicy to be rejected by the holier than the society as a whole media. With such an echo chamber, is it any wonder that every askance glance or sideways look is immediately blown into a report of extreme insult to Islam and another extreme case of Islamophobia. Make no mistake, these screams are a well thought out plan to get preferential treatment and allow Islam to be considered a complete “hands-off” with respect to any suspicions or accusations allowing for all such occurrences to be ignored allowing Islam to have a dominant position against all other religions and interests, including those of preserving freedoms in America including freedom of speech and freedom of religion and mark our words, those are the first targets of Islam in order to make Islam the only religion, Allah the only god and Muhammad his messenger and perfect male role model.

 

Europe has had a somewhat more violence prone result from their allowing “refugees” from Syria to resettle in their nations. They soon find that these “Syrian refugees” are actually from Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya and other Islamic nations from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). These “refugees” are mostly unaccompanied males between the ages of fifteen and forty or fifty, fighting age single men without wives, children or any family as far as can be determined. Yes there are some groups where women and children are included and these rarities somehow manage to be the sole figures that many media photographers are able to find and often are treated as the standard representatives of the refugees allowing media to report a pretty picture of family struggles to survive the horrors of the different warring factions. Many of the presumed refugees claim their real reason for coming to Europe was to collect the generous government benefits and spread Islam conquering Europe, but do not wait for many of these interviews to be reported in your nightly news. Germany had an eruption of sexual harassment and attacks on New Year’s Eve 2015-6 at any number of main train stations in city centers. These attacks angered many Germans and not just as reported simply right-wing xenophobic fascist nationalist extremists but many from the general public as was evident from the size and appearance of the crowds protesting (see picture below).

Germany has not been the only place facing violence as France has had a number of terrorist strikes including a deadly well-planned and executed military assault on Paris striking a number of public venues including a night club, a soccer stadium and other spots across the city. Later in the year there was an attack on a small parish church in the Normandy where they murdered Father Jacques Hamel cutting his throat in front of parishioners during the mass service. We covered this in our article on this heinous act in the article How Many Innocents Must Die? There have been numerous other incidents of terror attacks throughout Europe as well as all the turmoil and wars stretching across the MENA nations. Where this will end is anybody’s guess and how it will end will depend on how the Western National Public reacts and whether they will believe their freedoms and rights are worthy of being defended or whether they will simply allow Islam to trample their freedoms, history and colonize them as Islam has already done in their conquest of the entirety of MENA and beyond with this simply what some have identified as Islam’s third offensive against Europe and Western values. The first two were stopped and pushed back, whether this assault will also be repulsed remains to be seen. With many politicians already capitulating if not joining the wrong side and much of the media not reporting these attacks and the claims of Islamophobia are all part of the same assault upon Western society, nothing less. Will the Western nations reaffirm their Judeo-Christian history and realize its centrality to their modern lives and freedoms and how without the continued Judeo-Christian identity and a return to their religious identities and renew their faith the probability is they will fall and Islam will triumph bringing their dream of world domination one huge step closer. Will the Western World renew their belief in Hashem or fall before Allah. The two are not equal or the same, they are not different names for the same Deity. Hashem, the Judeo-Christian Deity, is the G0d of Abraham, Isaak, and Jacob while Allah is the deity of Abraham, Ishmael and Muhammad. Very different even if that might appear a minor difference, it is not. Is the history of the Western World about to end and be subsumed by Islam where all previous history before the conquest by Islam will be voided and soon cease to exist being supplanted by a new Islamic history.
