Looking at a map one can see the level of freedom Freedom House rated the world (see map below). What is frightening about this year’s survey is that freedom the world over fell and currently those nations rated as not free equal the other two categories of free and partly free.

Wars have a major oppressive effect on populations and the world is currently brimming with conflicts. Were one to look around the world at the current conflicts, they would largely have one thing in common, one side, if not both, or all, are Islamic nations or forces. Syria has several groups who are involved in the fighting which include but are not limited to Russia (non-Muslim), Remains of the Syrian Army (Muslim), Kurdish Militias (Muslim), Islamic State (Muslim), IRGC* (Muslim), Syrian opposition affiliated rebel groups (Muslim), Turkish Military (Muslim), Unified Syrian Army (Muslim), United States Air Force and related troops (non-Muslim), Israeli Defense Force (non-Muslim), Kurdish Peshmerga from Iraq (Muslim), Hezballah from Lebanon (Muslim), Jordan (Muslim), Saudi Arabia (Muslim), Qatar (Muslim), support for Russian effort from Iran (Muslim), Iraq (Muslim), China (non-Muslim), North Korea (non-Muslim), and support for the American effort from United Kingdom, France, Australia, Netherlands, Germany, Norway (which are all non-Muslim). Much of the above are also involved directly or indirectly in the civil violence in Iraq, that is another war zone. Moving around the area, there is the fighting in Yemen which includes but may not be limited to Hadi Government Military (Muslim), Qatar (Muslim), Saudi Arabia (Muslim), Supreme Political Council (Muslim), Houthis Militia (Muslim), Yemeni Air Force (Muslim), IRGC (Muslim), North Korea (Muslim), Russia (non-Muslim), Iran (Muslim), Hezballah (Muslim), Southern Transitional Council (Muslim), United Arab Emirates (Muslim), Islamic State (Muslim), al-Qaeda (Muslim), Bahrain (Muslim), Kuwait (Muslim), Jordan (Muslim), Morocco (Muslim), Senegal (Muslim), Sudan (Muslim), Blackwater mercenaries (non-Muslim), Turkey (Muslim), United Kingdom (non-Muslim), France (non-Muslim), United States (non-Muslim), China (non-Muslim), Salafist militias (Muslim) and formerly Egypt (Muslim). These above major war zones are largely made up of varied Muslim groups and nations with some non-Muslim as well as Muslim outside assistance. But what about outside the Middle East, what do we find there?

 

Across Northern Africa in the Transition Zone (see map below), there is a line of conflict where Islamic terror groups aided by supplies and money from various nations including the United States, along with numerous NATO member states across Europe, plus Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) nations or supported by Russia, China, North Korea and mostly Iran with some areas warranting Iran to inject IRGC both as fighters and trainers. One of the more notable terror groups operated in and around Nigeria is Boko Haram. Moving eastward there is the separatist fighting between the newly created South Sudan and the former nation, the Sudan, which refuses to recognize the separatist claims to have declared and been recognized as independent. Continuing to the Horn of Africa where we have Eretria and Djibouti which are both falling under Iranian influence and then there is Somalia where there is little governmental control and most of the power and weaponry is in the hands of separate and distinct warlords who rule over their particular areas. The African Transition Zone is an area filled with violence as Islamic forces attempt to push Christians and Animists to choose conversion to Islam, fleeing or death, many choose another alternative sarcastically called ‘none of the above’ and realistically called fighting to retain their lives, homes and towns.

Egypt has suffered numerous terror attacks largely due to an Islamic war on Coptic Christians as well as the Sinai Peninsula becoming an open war zone. There is also violence in Libya where a multi-faceted civil war is taking place. The violence across much of the northern and western coasts boils down to terror groups and tribal groups competing for dominance and territory. Al-Qaeda is still operating in these areas as are the Muslim Brotherhood, as they require forces to send to Hamas in Gaza, Islamic State has been moving into the Sinai Peninsula as of late as they have been chased from Iran and Syria due in large part to the efforts of the Kurdish fighters. There also exist criminal elements on top of tribal groups making the Sinai Peninsula a cauldron boiling over. President Sisi has promised the Egyptian people and the world that there will be order established by the Egyptian Military. One can only pray that he can deliver on his promise as having such groups operating just over the southern border has caused Israel some degree of consternation. These feelings have been justified as terrorists and drug smugglers have, on rare occasions, fired at Israelis from the Sinai Peninsula and even crossed the border using stolen armored vehicles. There have also been incidents where Hamas and Islamic Jihad have used the Sinai Peninsula to launch their rockets widening their area of threat from simply Gaza. Closing this area we can add that there exists violence in the southern and more central areas of Africa but the violence in most of these conflicts pale by comparison to most of these other conflicts, especially Syria and Iraq.

 

The last area of continuous though sporadic violence have been the terror attacks and crime waves in Europe, Canada, the United States and elsewhere in the world even to include Russia, China, Central Asia and the far east, specifically the Philippines. The Philippines are having what might be classified as a civil war or at least an uprising by Islamic forces called Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). The MILF have claimed affiliation with the Islamic State, despite predating them by decades, and are demanding their own independent Islamic nation on the Islands of Mindanao in the southernmost region of the Philippines. The fighting with the Moro natives who claim Islam as their religion go back to at the least the United States winning the Philippine Islands from the Spanish in the Spanish American War which ended with the Treaty of Paris in December 10, 1898, where the Philippines, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Guam were ceded to the United States, which “bought” the title for the Philippines from Spain for twenty-million dollars. With this, they also bought the insurrection fought by the Moro Islamic natives largely on the Island of Mindanao. The most famous of American commanders in this insurrection civil war was General ‘Black Jack’ Pershing. There are numerous tall tales about his handling of the Moro Islamic uprisings which we will leave to our readers to research. The remaining terror attacks largely upon Western Developed Democratic nations have been slighted as being one-off individuals unattached to any actual terrorist group. The validity of these claims has been questioned by some in media and we have our suspicions as well. Far too many of these individual ‘lone wolves’ as they are called, claim to have been inspired by al-Qaeda and now the Islamic State and some appear to have received information on the construction of their device, their explosives or the tactics used. Even if their tactic was as simple as ramming people riding in the bicycle lanes and you claim to be doing for the Islamic State, we would say we believe you thought you were a member of that terror organization as you have been influenced greatly by them. The government has appeared in all of the nations plagued by these attacks to minimize that these crimes are largely committed by immigrants from Islamic nations or that the morals, or lack thereof, and completely different lifestyles have caused any problems, especially for women, has been a monumental effort. There is an imbalance in the way the governments have historically treated any differences in culture or actions by Muslims compared to other groups. Where all groups previously were made to conform to the Western World and the ways of the citizens and culture but now the government is proposing we not only permit Islamic courts and cultural norms for their areas, but that the entirety of western culture must be subverted so as to allow for those of the Islamic faith to be comfortable. This is turning everything onto its head making for a topsy-turvy world all spinning out of control and losing its bearings.

 

Despite, or possibly because, of these unusual actions by the Western government one has to wonder if perhaps they have noticed that Islam will not surrender to the norms and will instead insist on their norms becoming the dominant culture and the Western World, at the governmental levels, have simply decided to surrender without a fight. The governments appear to be demanding that their own populations surrender their will to a foreign and imported set of concepts and morality laws and it is absurd. In Germany, the police filed hundreds if not thousands or more arrest complaints for sexual harassment and sexual assault because they were against Muslims and the women making the reports were improperly covered by Islamic standards. These complaints came within a week on either side of New Years and the government’s basic response was that the women asked to be molested and groped because they were not wearing body bags. Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen suggested that all women should wear a headscarf to battle prejudice against Muslims. Just one more European leader is suggesting submission to Islam. Perhaps we should clue him in that Islam actually means to submit and demands one submit to Allah by following every rule dictated to you by an Imam, but perhaps they already know this and have simply gone over to the other side and truly submitted themselves and their societies to Islam. They view this as Islam will refuse to give us peace; as long as we resist joining the world of Islam, they will fight using terrorism and all other methods to wear down the resistance until we give in, that is our leaders’ views. They would rather switch than fight, but there are those of us, even in governments, who would, like the old Tareyton cigarette commercials, would rather fight than switch.

The most disruptive force in the world currently is reminiscent of threats from a former era, two to be exact. The first was from around 622 through 750 as Islam spread across the MENA** regions only to be prevented from sweeping across Europe from the east by the Byzantine Empire, or its remnants as it was in its twilight but still held the great walled city of Constantinople and prevented from the west by the defeat of the Islamic armies by Charles ‘the Hammer’ Martel who defeated them at the battle of tours. The second was when the Ottoman Empire which replaced the Caliphate but retained Islam expanded into eastern end of Europe from 1360 through 1683 being stopped twice at the gates to Vienna where they were repulsed the final time by Polish King John III Sobieski at the Battle of Vienna against the Ottoman Empire in 1683. The Ottoman Empire was to be on the losing end of World War I which brought Arabist rule to an end amongst the MENA nations for the ensuing fifty years while the Europeans held political power allowing limited self-rule in those places where it was beneficial. This European colonialism is considered the worst horror to ever befall these lands completely ignoring the nine-hundred year oppressive rule first by the Islamic Arabs and followed by the Islamic rule by Ottoman Turkish Muslims. These areas were ruled with an iron fist much of the time as Islam was most efficient at placing tyrannical leaders at their helm as it valued strength above almost all else though from time to time there would be a benevolent ruler, Caliph, who would permit more freedoms.

Islamic Expansion

 

Those are the times which the current Muslim uprisings are remembering and believing by returning to those violent ways they will once again raise to greatness. They are emulating most the initial bursting out from the Arabian Peninsula as the purest form of Islam and the one to be most emulated. These were very violent attacks where thousands were put to the sword for refusal to convert adopting Islam. Often there were places taken where the men were slaughtered and the women imprisoned to serve for breeding the next generation of warriors who would be particularly ruthless as they were required to prove their worth on the battlefield before being granted the right to become a Muslim, the one thing they had been raised being taught that was the highest of all possible honors and that only the most ruthless and gifted fighters would be so rewarded. This is what we are witnessing now, blind obedience and the willingness to die for Islam just to prove that they are the brave willing to go to the afterlife and receive great pleasures in Heaven where warriors who die fighting for Islam are instantly transported with all their sins and the sins of their families forgiven. There is also something about grass fields with flowers and waterfalls and pools of water as well as wine and something about perpetual virgins and other sexual pleasures which will be rewarded them. These forms of senseless violence we have witnessed being perpetrated against Western peoples will only get worse just as it had in Israel before we took measures to prevent and actively fight to prevent further violence. The only thing many Islamic leaders understand is strength as they do exactly as Osama bin Laden stated, they will follow, as do all people, the strong horse which still stands tall and capable after battle.

 

As also noted above, the vast majority of violence, being perpetrated around the globe circulates about Islam. There can only be propaganda conflicting with this observation and Islamic leaders are well versed in the practice of Taqiyyah which is lying in order to advance the cause of Islam. One can even deny Allah and all the tenets of Islam if doing so works to the advantage of Islam which includes remaining alive. In Islam, one is to quote the early and no longer practiced verses which tell of how Muhammad taught compassion and coexistence. They speak of peaceful existence and Islam being the religion of peace. In time, they slowly reveal to the faithful the true nature and the demands to conquer every living being for Allah and how all must worship Allah or be put to the sword, beheaded. Islam is peace in that the world of Islam is defined as the world of peace and serenity where all have surrendered their will to Allah. The parts of the world not conquered yet by Islam are called the house of war which is why all other religions are considered to be barbaric and violent, as they reside in the world of war outside Islam while Islam is the world of peace.

 

The idea in Islam is the opposite of war is surrender before Islamic masters who will dictate to you everything you will need in this life. This eventually leads to crushing all creativity and a slow but steady loss of knowledge which for the masses is exactly what Islam demands, blind and thoughtless obedience which is absolute. Muslim forces conquering many places would burn down all book repositories such as libraries as the books inside either were not the Quran and therefore heretical as the Quran has all the knowledge one could ever require in life. Just a quick note, the Quran contains no mathematical rules or physics formulas but it is all a Muslim need know to be a teacher, actually, a teacher must have proven to have memorized the entire Quran. The Quran is not arranged chronologically but rather from the shortest verse to the longest verse. This permits for even the youngest to begin learning and memorizing the Quran as the initial verses are the most simple and as one ages the verses get longer and your ability is to grow as you memorize more verses until you know everything you will ever need in life. This is what desires to conquer the rest of the Earth. If not prevented, they will succeed and that will be the end of history and also the human race with time. Sometimes the opposite of war is slavery; Islam is a form of slavery in the service of the Imams who know the Quran and potentially nothing else.

 

You will need to choose whether you wish to live under Islam, especially if you reside in western Europe, as those nations who were not part of the Soviet Union and have forgotten what totalitarian rule is like are rushing headlong into surrender to Islamic demands and adopting Sharia, the last law you will ever need as from then on you are on your face five times a day facing Mecca. There is more to it than that, but this should be sufficient for now. Islam is surrender which means that once you have accepted Islam you no longer need to think for yourself as you surrendered to Allah and his perfect person dictated a book about everything you could even need know and he was an illiterate and thus actually does not know if they wrote down what he told them, he had to take it on faith and they are demanding you do the same and surrender your life to whatever this man stated. This is Islam and your future if the world does not awaken and realize the truth and depth of the threat. This goes for those who still believe that there is a peaceful solution to the Arab Israeli conflict which does not include the glorious and undeniable victory by the Jews defeating all of Islam or the end of the Jewish State, the Jewish Faith, the Jewish Bible, the Jewish teachings and soon thereafter the end of Christianity. If Europe believes they can stand without Israel being the stopper of the Islamic bottle, they have some wild dreams, honestly. And if the United States believes they can survive without either Russia or China, possibly India, after Israel and Europe fall, they are also delusional. Russia and China are ignoring the problem as the Muslims are being nice for the moment, they will get around to imposing their religion on you with time, that is the one thing we can guarantee the world, nobody gets out or we all get out, no middle ground on this one. Islam will need to be defeated and reformed from the outside, as it will never happen internally because forcing all to become Islamic zombies completely surrendering to Allah and the Mullahs and Imams who will command you, and that does not leave much room for interpretation. It means conquer the entire world and convert everyone, where is the wiggle room in this and this is what they believe is required of them here where it all sort of began.

The Environmental Extremist Perfect World

 

Between recent events in state and local governments, the political dreams of some select Presidential candidates including one of the main candidates, Congressional and Senatorial campaigns and the abundant environmental NGO’s demands of candidates and governance, it is easy to extrapolate and draw an accurate picture. We have watched as coal mines and coal fired electric generating plants have been forced by government into closing their production, their generation of electricity or to an expensive changeover to natural gas and the current drive against the remaining coal plants and numerous oil powered plants to shut down or change to natural gas. Where the success has been most prolific there is a new drive, to close natural gas powered plants. Then there has been the court and legislative drives to criminalize fracking and close down any drilling or other harvesting of carbon fuels within zones such as schools, daycares, public malls, shopping centers, hospitals, residential housing or even any structure used by human beings with some demanding as much as a half mile setback which could have the effect of closing as high and three-quarters of all mining, drilling, fracking of other carbon fuel harvesting. Their intended goal is to have the majority of electrical generation come from renewable fuels or eco-friendly generation. The eco-friendly generation is where the problems arise. One might believe that hydro power would meet their requirements but one would be incorrect. Dams, you see, block rivers and thus prevent natural river flow and development and a number of environmental fanatics are demanding the undamming of rivers returning them to their natural flow rates and support for ecosystems. Then there is wind power but these are a danger to birds and until a safe and completely bird safe system can be developed they demand that wind turbines be parked to save the birds, especially those in the path of migratory birds. With even natural gas, the environmentalists’ favorite fuel, coming under fire where other fuels have been closed down or changed over to natural gas, what is now appearing to be a fool’s choice if natural gas is actually unacceptable as well.

 

So, what generation source would be acceptable to all the ecology fanatics? Even if wind power were acceptable, the demand for adequate production is beyond imagination. Industry and government data show that generating just 20% of US electricity with wind power would require some 18,000,000 acres of land, 186,000 turbines, 19,000 miles of new transmission lines, and 270,000,000 tons of concrete, steel, copper, fiberglass and rare earths. Just multiply these figures by five and add another ten percent for good measure and you would immediately realize that such an idea is ridiculously demanding. The ecology fanatics like to tout wave technology which is in its initial stages and should it become viable then these fanatics would find a reason that it endangered kelp or jelly fish or some other problem. There are those who claim that solar power generation is dangerous as it causes heat pollution. So do human beings simply by living generate heat, but perhaps we should keep that a secret before the environmentalists demand we take measures to prevent our heat pollution from destroying the delicate balance and possibly adding to the loss of glaciers. As far as we can figure, there is no generation of electricity or powering our vehicles which in the end would be acceptable to these fanatics. Yes, there are reasonable ecological dreamers whose demands almost make sense but they are outdone by the fanatics who apparently have no lack of energy in generating demands and petitions not to mention making grand displays and demonstrations against virtually every form of power generation.

 

The reasonable ecological warriors have also made a miscalculation, though we are wary of informing them, in their claims that electric cars reduce pollution. These electric cars require charging which can most easily be done one of two means currently. The first is to power a generator on the vehicle with a gasoline powered engine which pollutes just as a regular gasoline powered engine would and even more power must be generated to make up for energy loss in any system. The other and most used manner is to plug the car in overnight and charge the batteries. Well, where does that electricity originate. A power plant which, as the eco friends will inform us at every turn, generates pollution just as would the gasoline powered cars. All battery powered vehicles manage is to relocate the pollution and have it enter the atmosphere at night, the one time when the air formerly had an opportunity to be safer from pollution. Even if it manages to reduce the hydrocarbons spewed into the atmosphere, the difference is likely minimal and one need weigh whether or not the difference is worth trading the freedom of traveling beyond the range of battery power for such things as, what is that thing called where you drive a distance to have simply family fun time? Oh yes, a vacation.

 

We had an introduction granted us lesser people from Al Gore whose homes are simply unbelievable carbon powered heat sinks and anything but eco-friendly (see below). Let us also not forget that Al Gore jets back and forth in a private jet rather than using commercial airliners which would cut back on his carbon footprint, but Mr. Gore is one of the privileged and cannot be expected to rub elbows with the great unwashed. The same can be stated for another great enviro-warrior, Nancy Pelosi. You see Ms. Pelosi demanded a larger more fuel hungry jet for her trips most weekends from Washington D.C. to her home in California because she was put off having to stop and refuel somewhere, often Arkansas, in flyover country where those other people reside, how totally revolting, almost like gagging on a spoon like a valley girl. Many of the Representative and Senators have similar stories about how they abuse the atmosphere and pollute the air the rest of America breathes and then have the audacity of demanding that people drive cars which are death traps should they have an accident with the large Mercedes or Cadillac or whatever luxury chauffeur driven vehicle these servants of the people use at both ends of their personal jet flight home whenever they feel homesick. Granted, not all of the representatives of the people act with such lack of caring. Many do fly regular airlines and even use cabs or drive reasonable vehicles, but they are the exception. Then there is Bernie, I’m a humble socialist living a life like any little person, Sanders who made news in the Washington Post soon after the Democrat conventions. Let us quote, “Sanders family’s ‘new waterfront crib has four bedrooms and 500 feet of Lake Champlain beachfront,’ according to the Vermont newspaper Seven Days, which broke the news on Monday. Sanders’s spokesman, Michael Briggs, told us the home is 1,800 square feet (hardly a mansion). Jane O’Meara Sanders, the senator’s wife, said she had ‘always hoped’ to buy a home in the area, which has more of a country village vibe than Hamptons feel.” We wish our apartment was 1,800 square feet and sat on a 500 foot lakefront though our cozy little apartment five blocks from the Mediterranean Sea is sweet enough even if it is a little too close to Lebanon if another war breaks out. Let us return back to our eco-friends.

The one thing which is disturbing about many of the friends of Earth demands is for the human race to stop using any electricity, end the use of fertilizer, stop making things out of plastics, use only renewable energy sources, replace vehicles with alternate transportation such as donkeys and horses, and return to living as our ancestors did a thousand years ago. There is a small problem with these demands; it would result in the death of a vast majority of human beings on the planet. This of course would greatly please the ZPG crowd, the zero population growth. Believe it or not, there is another group which would claim that the loss of these people was but a good start. These people call for the reduction of the human population by ninety percent leaving only a small group of eco-friendly people who know how to live in a reasonable agreement with nature. Even these people are not the most extreme as there is a group which calls for the eradication of the human race as without people the planet would be in balance and the human beings are only a source of Earthly destruction. We have a simple policy with both of these last two groups, you guys first as it were your idea and we promise to live in a manner nicer to the planet. What we are not telling them is we have decided their sacrifice was sufficient for the rest of us to continue in relative comfort. Satisfying the insatiable is a foolish game as by definition they will never be content no matter how much the society bends to please them. Their idea of perfection does not include the rest of us and there is the problem. If it comes to us or them and they are the fanatics who believe there are too many people, then let them lead the way and we can call that our solution, sounds good, no?
