Now, though, it has become much easier to expose these alliances between those whose ostensible principles and loyalties are in extreme conflict.
More and more, the public is becoming able to see that leftists of secular materialistic commitments can ally with spiritual Islamic terrorists, demonstrating the fraudulent
character of each, and exposing the underlying power-greed which unites them in enmity against those whose governments have not yet assumed totalitarian control.
Quoting: To Set The Record Straight by "Jamie Glazov FrontPageMagazine.com Wednesday, January 30, 2008
Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Scott Swett,[...] the co-author (with Tim Ziegler) of To Set The Record Straight: How Swift Boat Veterans, POWs and the New Media Defeated John Kerry.
[...] Swett: By 2004, the new media – by which I mean primarily the Internet and talk radio – had reached a point where it was no longer possible for the traditional TV networks and leading liberal papers to control the country’s political discussions, as they had been accustomed to doing for several decades. [...] Rather’s Ruin and the Rise of the Pajamahadeen.
If such a story had aired just a few years earlier, there’s little question that it would have been accepted as true and would have had a significant impact. That raises an interesting question: how many times has the media lied to us in the past without anyone noticing?
FP: Your thoughts on the coordination between the Left and America's enemies, both during the Vietnam War and today?
Swett: The common thread linking the leftists who helped enable the communist genocide in Southeast Asia a generation ago and those who control today’s “peace” movement is their identification of America as their primary enemy. This makes them willing to coordinate their activities with any external enemy of the US regardless of ideology. On the surface, it would seem improbable that American “liberals” would have much in common with fanatics who, for example, regard women as essentially property, but that clearly matters less than their desire to see our country thwarted and defeated. [...]
New York Times owner Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., said during the Vietnam War that if an American soldier encountered a North Vietnamese soldier in the field, he would want to see the American get shot. There is no reason to think he has changed his views."
When is the mass-murder of millions not the worst crime? When it's not ANTI-DIVERSITY, or such is the implication of the genocide concept. If the killing of a distinct people were a crime in and of itself, though, the accidental killer of the last drunken native speaker of a rare Indian language would be genocidal, and more culpable then the leftist industrialist of mass-murder. This is another of the unrepairable contradictions of the pro-diversity value-representation. Is this a rarefied theoretical juxtaposition, unlikely to be run across in the pragmatic slog of common politics? If so, what is happening here, then:"Today, there is a movement in the Ukraine to get that deliberate starvation of from 3-10 million people declared an act of genocide. Not surprisingly, the Russians are violently opposed. But their reasoning is mindboggling. They say that no one ethnic group was targeted by the deliberate famine..."

Open-Borders Advocates Are Effective VECTORS Of The Current Islamic Terror Offensive Against The Rare Freedom-Loving Nationalities
Monday, January 28, 2008
Even to maintain such an anti-culture, requires a massive establishment of government schools, constantly smearing opponents of its further empowerment, so as to never itself be placed on the defensive.
Contemporary officialdom gravely damages hopes for the future and the continuity of civilization, by aggressively supporting the mass immigration of hostiles and affirmative action-eligibles. The worse the minority failures become, in absolute or relative magnitude, the more this official anti-culture may be seen to blame white children for it, and mistreat them as if they were responsible.
Contemporary officialdom is quite conspicuously NOT loyal to the citizenry that exists, but to a prospective one; one that promises enhancement of power through increase of conflict between ever-more-diverse and mutually hostile minorities.
This is a large part of the meaning of pro-diversity.

More Of The Wild Contradictions Of The Pro-Diversity (Anti-)Culture: Unified=Disunified, Cohesive=Non-Cohesive, Common Culture=No Common Culture?
And well they should not, if the idea is to serve power-greed by increasing divisions through increasing and favoring diversity, and especially favoring all that which is diverse from those most redoubtable against power-greed and its greater satisfaction through conflict.
A common culture needs breaking up, if power is to be increased through developing domestic conflict to the point where emergency powers can be easily used.
Here is presidential primary candidate McCain, who in '05 said:
"...our one shared faith is ...that a nation conceived in an idea ...will prove stronger ...than any nation ...made from a common ...culture ...". This exemplifies the official attitude, and it is one that reduces immediately to a contradiction-in-terms: it can't be our common culture to have no common culture. It is also contradictory to say that it can be our common loyalty to have no common loyalty, to fellow citizens over against foreigners; but loyalty to an non-national idea only, one that foreigners might share without thereby becoming citizens nor even wanting to. Enshrining such contradictions as the "common faith" narrows "the scope of loyalty" by atomizing the nation into valued 'diversity' of negations of true loyalty. Cohesion does not equal non-cohesion, the unified does not equal the disunified, and a common anti-culture of disloyalty to fellow citizens, relative to foreigners who enter our territories with aggression, serves power-greed when conflicts rise sufficiently high. Foreign war enhances the central power, and civil war does this even more effectively.

Anti-Discrimination Above Higher Values, Covering Even Islamic Immigration, Is Not Compatible With Freedom Of Political Publication
"Holland is on high alert in anticipation of the upcoming release of yet another anti-Islam film, this one created by far right Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders, who has been living under high security since the death of Theo van Gogh in 2004 (van Gogh was murdered on the streets of Amsterdam by a radical Muslim in retaliation for a film that he directed, Ayaan Hirsi Ali's "Submission"). The government has recommended the evacuation of all its embassies "in sensitive areas," and has been engaging for weeks now in discussions with police officials as to the best way to handle the riots and violence they expect will erupt when the film is aired. [...] Iran issues a warning to the parliament in the Hague. "
The Islamic immigrant terror offensive does not consist only of explosions and murders.
The Higher Terror, which follows inevitably from the admission without discrimination, of unspeakably hostile moslem immigration cohorts, into civilized countries, which have at least some brave publishers; is the terror offensive involving threats of deadly violence against publication of that which Islam dislikes.
It is not known to be true that a society can have BOTH (1) anti-discrimination which extends even to the admission of unspeakably hostile Islamic immigrants, AND (2) have civilization above that ancient minimum, which allows freedom of political publication; NOT lastingly both of the above.
That today's left would appear to prefer going back to the medieval times before Milton's Areopagitica, rather than miss a chance to make common cause with mobilized Islam, indicates another unspeakable hostility, menacingly multiplying within the precincts of civilization.

"The analysis did not find that all diversity training is useless. Rather, it showed that mandatory programs — often undertaken mainly with an eye to avoiding liability in discrimination lawsuits — were the problem....
“When attendance is voluntary, diversity training is followed by an increase in managerial diversity,” said Alexandra Kalev, a sociologist at the University of Arizona, who led the research. “Most employers, however, force their managers and workers to go through training, and this is the least effective option in terms of increasing diversity. . . . Forcing people to go through training creates a backlash against diversity.” " [found (here)]
JB Comments: If aggression is used to force pro-diversity attitudes, of course there will be negative reaction. These pro-diversity corporate indoctrination programs are forced by lawsuits, by official aggression. Those who assume that power-greedy officials might also be well-meaning and sincere in their use of increase of aggression for pro-diversity, 'anti-racism' programs like the corporate ones, are profoundly wrong and naive at best. When officials say they must have more power against the citizenry, it doesn't matter in the least what they say its for, only the bottom line in terms of power is relevant. Note especially how they have it set up so as to smear those who object to the power-grab: all objectors can be described as racist, anti-diversity, prejudiced, etc. What if they did Christianity training programs under threat of discrimination lawsuits, in another country, threatening loss of employment to unwilling participants; would any professor, journalist or leftist, no matter how highly educated, have the least difficulty in identifying the procedure as official aggression?

Anti-Quota Ballot Initiatives: Republican Candidates Must Have Their Feet Held To The Fire On This Issue
From The LA Times:
"By Stephanie Simon, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer January 19, 2008
DENVER -- Intent on dismantling affirmative action, activists in five states have launched a coordinated drive to cut off tax dollars for programs that offer preferential treatment based on race or gender.The campaign aims to put affirmative action bans on the November ballot in Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma. The effort is being organized by California consultant Ward Connerly, who has successfully promoted similar measures in California, Michigan and Washington.Supporters of affirmative action say the initiatives will be hard to block, given that Connerly has a proven ability to raise funds and persuade voters, even in more liberal states."They've targeted states where there's a white majority electorate and a vocal, if small, extreme anti-immigrant right wing," said Shanta Driver, who runs By Any Means Necessary, a coalition that defends affirmative action. In such states, she said, "it's extremely difficult for us to win."Connerly's campaign -- which he calls Super Tuesday for Equality -- could also get a boost if the presidential ballot includes an African American or a woman. That would help him make the case, he said, that the playing field is level and minorities no longer need a hand up.In most states, Connerly has until spring or summer to collect enough signatures to put the measures on the ballot. His allies have already submitted more than 140,000 signatures in Oklahoma. Petitions are circulating in Arizona, Colorado, Missouri and Nebraska."
If Affirmative Action Were Working As It Was Advertised During Most Of Its First 36 Years...
...with Disparate Impact quotas breaking the ice, you would now need, every year, LESS intervention rather than MORE each year. Quite the contrary to this expectation, though, what we get is an automatic increase every year, of the extent of intervention for affirmative action, as the disadvantaged minority numbers eligible increases every year. Can affirmative action and the discrimination which supposedly gives rise to a need for this aggressive intervention of government power, possibly interact so as to increase discrimination at exactly the rate which would justify each new increment of disparate impact quotas, again tracking exactly the increase in the disadvantaged minority percentage eligible? Could it do this with exactitude year after year, and decade after decade? The odds against that could hardly be less than billions to one.

McCain Wouldn't Have Become Racist And Xenophobic, If Now Fences And Restriction Of Immigration Are All Right By Him?
McCain appears to be a vector in many ways: of independent mischief-makers into Republican primary votes, of left-oriented approaches into legislation, and of undesirable aliens into places where they can do the most damage to civilization. He is often found to be the transmitting agent between the left and the right, but selectively of the unwholesome towards the healthier. Other candidates show a much more wholesome aspect, even unmistakably so.

Is It Time To Celebrate America's Official Valuing Of Openness To Immigrant And Quota-Recruited Diversity RE: Scientific Publications?
Is there some reason why we may not look at the facts on this?
Below are the number of scientific publications per million population for the countries which are above the U.S. on this indicator of contribution to the advancement of civilization:
U.S.-708 Germany 657, and France 652, are just below, but may have already moved beyond the American level in the last few years. From Scientific American April 2002, p.25
& for the individual year's data that the Scientific American averages were taken from see Cordis:
Scientific publications per million population
How could these countries, with so much less diversity, especially in their universities, have moved up to and soared beyond, the American level, if diversity strengthens and enriches?
If our diversity has increased from a point rather like these European countries today, why has it not allowed us to maintain our relative position to these countries, and how could it be associated with the opposite pattern, from that which was predicted, and still is predicted; that the more diversifying country should be relatively strengthening its contribution to advancement of civilization? Instead, we see the more diversifying countries being more and more surpassed, first by one, then another and another, less-diversifying country.
If any pro-diversity believers should be so bold as to answer the above, let them be forewarned that ad hoc excuse-making won't do at all.

This device of smearing works by throwing the burden of proof on to the vilified, to prove that he is not some extreme character, when there are no rational arguments for moving in the direction preferred by the smeararchy.
The smeararchy forms up in politicized academic, cultural and political groupings, organizing around power-greed, serving it, and hoping to benefit from it. It uses false dilemma and slippery-slope smearing, to divert public awareness from its inability to provide convincing
arguments for motion in the direction of the greater satisfaction of power-greed.
It started in its current pattern around 100 years ago, rhetorically targeting social darwinism and racism, vilifying all opponents as social darwinist, racists, xenophobes etc., but never proving why a major move to the left and to the empowerment of officials, was necessary. To accomplish this, new smear-terms had to be invented continually. First Spencerian and prejudiced became social darwinist and racist, then a proliferation: sexist, classist, ableist, lookist and others; all to facilitate smearing. The terms get the opponents of increase of power over the citizenry, to try to disprove the smear-term's application to them, and thus fail to demand that the power-greedy make their case in a way that can carry conviction .
One crippling consequence of the rise of smeararchy is the reward toward increasing irresponsibility. The more irresponsible the smear-mongers become, the more their preferences tend to win, and irresponsibility of a more general kind overtakes the society which is thus dominated.

A Splendid Synthesis Of The Facts Regarding The Rise Of The Current Immigration Issue, As It Has Climbed A Wall Of Smears
By Stephen Steinlight
Download the .pdf version
"...another standard device to engender sympathy for illegal aliens in "human interest" stories. It locates point of view exclusively in them, ceding them all the direct quotation in the narrative as they passionately relate their travails and allege pervasive bigotry. No member of the group
supporting the resolution addresses us directly; the reporter relates their denials of bigotry."
"The grassroots’ revolt against the elite’s immigration policy is as welcome [...] as was Banquo’s ghost at Macbeth’s banquet. Like Banquo’s bloody, guilt- and terror-inducing apparition, it may also be a premonition of regime change feared and loathed by the political and financial elite and their media flacks.
One way to try defusing this obstreperous movement is starving it of coverage, and there seems to be an implicit understanding in the mainstream print media and the TV networks to do just that. So monolithic is the worldview of the mainstream media one need not posit a conspiracy to end up with what amounts to objective collusion.
Whenever possible, its strategy of choice is omission; it is exceedingly difficult for media consumers to question what is absent. "
When omission is not viable, mainstream media coverage of immigration is so formulaic it resembles a caricature literary genre, and an inflexible one at that, replete with such de rigueur conventions as recurring plots, stock characters, euphemized standard usage, repeating motifs, core imagery and metaphors, a consistent worldview, intrusive moral commentary by an omniscient narrator in the persons of the "objective reporter" or the editor, recognizable villains and heroes, and heavy-handed political didacticism."
JB comments to follow later; there is a lot to think about here.
My first impression is that a powerful intellect has gone over a stunning mass of (dis)information, and drawn out some revelatory conclusions.

Would authorities tell us if they suspected that the Islamic War of Religion against the Infidel had instigated such fires?
FromFront Page Magazine's Jihad Watch ( Main ) January 15, 2008 :
"U.S. intel alerted to threat of 'Forest Fire Jihad'
We have heard this before. And it may just be another attempt to claim credit for something that jihadists actually have nothing to do with, the way Al-Qaeda claimed credit for the East Coast blackout a few years ago, in order to "strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah" (Qur'an 8:60). Or it may not be.
Also, don't miss this from Abu Musab Al-Suri: "Jihad is an art just like poetry, music, and the fine arts. There are people that draw and there are others that are jihadists. They both act upon inspiration.”
From the World Tribune (thanks to Morgan Sinclair):
U.S. officials monitoring terrorist web sites have discovered a call for using forest fires as weapons against “crusader” nations, in what may explain some recent wildfires in places like southern California and Greece.
A terrorist website was discovered recently that carried a posting that called for “Forest Jihad.” The posting was listed on the Internet on Nov. 26 and reported in U.S. intelligence channels last week.
The statement, in Arabic, said that “summer has begun so do not forget the Forest Jihad.”
The writer called on all Muslims in the United States, Europe, Russia and Australia to “start forest fires.” [...]
Wildfires in California burned more than 500,000 acres beginning in October and authorities said arson was to blame for some of the fires. In August, wildfires broke out in Greece that authorities say were deliberately set."

A government, so far as its officials approximate to holding complete totalitarian power, do not express love for diversity. Insofar as a society has resisted successfully the growth of official power relative to the citizenry, their officials will be found looking for whatever way they can get away with, to bring in those most likely to come into conflict with the existing population. More conflict between more diverse groups of residents can be expected to gain them more power, when methods involving calls to unity and harmony do not yield the increase of power that they want. These are inductive generalizations from history; they fit with what you know or maybe they don't. It is in this context, though, that one might read the following from Selwyn Duke:
"Last year’s scamnesty bill had widespread support among the powers-that-be, with the president, the Democrat majority and mainstream media all singing its praises. Yet it went down to defeat, slain by a new-media coalition of talk radio and blogosphere warriors. Working tirelessly to expose the truth and rally the grassroots, they became a David who slew a Goliath.
Forty-three years ago it was a different world. Ted Kennedy had co-authored the “Immigration Reform Act of 1965,” which created a situation wherein 85 percent of our immigrants hail from the Third World and Asia. He took to the Senate floor, claimed his brainchild wouldn’t change the demographic composition of the nation and passed the culture-rending bill under the cover of darkness.
This darkness was not absence of light but that of truth; it was a media blackout. With no Internet and little talk radio, mainstream journalists had a monopoly over the hearts and minds of America. And they knew best. The little people didn’t have to worry their pretty little heads about actions that would forever alter the face of the nation.
This is why the old media fears the new one. The latter watches the watchers, polices the police. It has cut into the Rathersphere’s market, causing a diminution of circulation, viewership and - this is what really gets their collars up — power. They can no longer propagandize with Tass-like impunity, for the e-hills have eyes. " from: The Race for the American Mind - Selwyn Duke on American Thinker
JB comments further: At the outset, the premiss was offered that the power-greedy will try for as much power to do as much damage as can be got away with in the here and now. What would draw them up short, feeling that they're not going to get away with something? Wouldn't it be especially that case where the potential victims are alert to what is occurring? Shining a light on bad doings can be effective, and this is one big reason why it is good that "the e-hills have eyes".

No Indulgence For McCain: Unreasonably Promoting Openness To Hostiles & Suppressing Our Freedom Of Political Speech Completely Disqualifies Him
One is from National Review, by Mark R. Levin, entitled “The Real McCain Record”, quoted below:
"McCain-Feingold — the most brazen frontal assault on political speech since Buckley v. Valeo.
McCain-Kennedy — the most far-reaching amnesty program in American history.
McCain-Lieberman — the most onerous and intrusive attack on American industry — through reporting, regulating, and taxing authority of greenhouse gases — in American history.
McCain-Kennedy-Edwards — the biggest boon to the trial bar since the tobacco settlement, under the rubric of a patients’ bill of rights.
McCain-Reimportation of Drugs — a significant blow to pharmaceutical research and development, not to mention consumer safety (hey Rudy, pay attention, see link).
From Hugh Hewitt's interview with Rick Santorum " HH:Do you believe he’s sincerely changed on the immigration bill to where he understands the message that was delivered last summer?
HH: Why not?
RS: Well, I mean, because John McCain was the leader on the other side of the aisle. John McCain was the guy who was working with Ted Kennedy to drive it down our throats, and lectured us repeatedly about how xenophobic we were, lectured us, us being the Republican conference, about how wrong we were on this, how we were on the wrong side of history, and that you know, this is important for his…because having come from Arizona, knowing the strength of the Hispanic community, that we were going to be seen as racists, and he wasn’t going be part of that, that he was not a racist, and that if we were for tougher borders, it was a racist thing. Look, John McCain looks at things through the eyes, on these kind of domestic policy issues, looks at it through the eyes of the New York Times editorial board..."
It is not reasonable to promote legislation of such great consequence by smearing opponents as motivated entirely by racism, and making fake diagnoses of xenophobia, where rational arguments were to be expected. Pretending to have a special line to what will turn out to be the right side of pre-ordained History is unreasonable; it is not known to be true. This is how moves to the left are accomplished; there's confirmation here of the pattern of smearing, use of false dilemma, plus invocations of Manifest (progressive or racial) Destiny, betrayal by leaders flying under false colors, and not much more than these. It should be highly resistible, if the people are not buffaloed by media puff-jobbery.

There could be even millions of mortgages to illegals, which are in danger of default and foreclosure with losses to lenders and the net taxpayer behind them. How can this be considered an overall gain from openness to diversity of foreign criminals; the disvalue is obvious and about to become even more obvious over the next few years of foreclosures on these fraudulent credit transactions. Openness to fraud is not valuable, and what else can no-money-down, six-figure mortgages for people using fake ID's be expected to yield? The incomes of so many of these undesirable immigrants are so low that fraud is the only way they can get loans in these amounts. This is another way that valuing openness to diversity corrupts and devalues our system, at enormous cost.
From a report by Michelle Malkin: link to Malkin
"A 25-year veteran of the mortgage industry in California confided to me recently: "It boggles the mind to think how many illegal aliens are homeowners in this country thanks to these programs, all fully insured by our government. Because of fear of lawsuits for discrimination I can also tell you that a lender may have a borrower who speaks little or no English who claims to be either a citizen or resident alien and it will not be questioned nor any proof required. Since FHA does not require any such documentation, a lender cannot cite their regulations as a basis for the request as they can on conventional loans."
Another easy avenue to home ownership is through the use of bogus Social Security cards. Moneylenders have no access to a verification system to check Social Security numbers before approving loans. A Department of Homeland Security investigator informs me that an ongoing federal probe of FHA/HUD-backed loans found that "a staggering number were approved to persons with false Social Security numbers." The Denver metro area alone accounted for 20,000 to 40,000 of the FHA-approved loans for suspected illegal aliens. "Even if a small percentage of the loans were foreclosed, HUD could be bankrupted," the homeland security official said."

The Diversity Bubble Deflates At Rates Not Seen Since the 1930's
With California median house prices now down over 30% in one year, mainly on a wave of foreclosure sales in barrios, the pro-diversity notions of expanding and diversifying downwards the eligibility for mortgages, have come to be questioned, as here: VDARE.com column
Bush's Ownership Society is flattening down towards a foreclosure-ship society, at least along those ragged edges where the diversity was getting 'excluded', and needed government action of the aggressive-inclusive kind. For several years it was possible for low-end buyers to take on mortgages which they had no hope of making the payments on, as price appreciation could be borrowed against. Prices had only to stop going up for a year or so, though, to reveal the unsoundness which would drive the current wave of foreclosures. Zero-down payment mortgages for people using fake ID were being made on a large scale, opening the way to an explosion of fraud. The re-blowing of this bubble then would seem to require that a new group of buyers, using NEGATIVE down payments, be found and subsidized by government. Otherwise they have to wait for general inflation to work its way through to the busted flim-flam distressed zones, which are diversity HQ quite often.

how exactly would that cure their defect and make them desirable as immigrants?
Would it be because the Islamic mentality is susceptible to propagandization by Europeans,
and that weakness could be used to make them moderate, assimilable, tolerant and respectful of other traditions, and even imagine themselves equal, brotherly and at peace with the infidel? The contradictions of anti-discrimination as a value above loyalty to civilization and other values, are today squeezing the anti-culture to its limits. Recall that the below-captured are the intellectually active of the Islamic Middle East, not the fellahin.
From an earlier post:
The Meaning of the Nation Contra Propositionalist Disloyalism II
The nation means the people who are loyal to fellow nationals over against foreigners, at least those foreigners whose entry increases the level of aggression inside the boundaries. Having this loyalty is a prerequisite for being really part of the nation, while beliefs in some political ideas cannot make a foreigner into a fellow national in themselves, as such a foreigner could and almost certainly would fail to have the loyalty as defined above. He would still say let my relatives in regardless of what increase of aggression or damage they may do to the pre-existing citizenry, as, for example the net taxpayer of our nationality. Not having this loyalty to the people of one's nation relative to aggression by foreigners is sufficient grounds for loss of citizenship, while disbelief in political principles never causes rescinding of citizenship. The nation cannot mean less than that this loyalty to fellows in the circumstance of foreign aggression within our territories is owed, but viciously traitorous one-worlders are trying relentlessly to destroy our nation in this exact way, by trying to break down these most basic loyalties. A secessionist region which copied exactly the laws of America would not thereby become part of the USA, nor would its residents become American citizens from that procedure, regardless of what they said about their political creed. If our nation were ideational, notional or propositional as they say, that and more would follow. When American ideas of what sort are said to be constitutive of the nation, in and of themselves, and are made out to belong to all humanity as well, it would follow that foreign hostility to America would be treason, and we could convict foreigners of it, and punish them, who had never been near this country. If all the world is assumed to share our ideas on account of their species character alone, since America is said to be for everyone, and essentially propositional, every other country would then be a rebel province of ours, in need of being subdued. If two such perfect propositional countries existed, each would have claims of sovereignty on the other, and the responsibility to wage war of aggression on the other, as well as responsibility to capitulate to the other; yielding multiple contradictions-in-terms.

Honors To Duncan Hunter For Leading The Federal Legislation Against The Security Prosperity Plan Facilities: HR 3074
Amazing how these conspiracy theorists have developed such intricate plans and displays, and even fooled the Canadians into building a several thousand-mile section of the NAU (North American Union Concept) superhighway/rail network, when American officials assure us that only crazies believe that the Security Prosperity Partnership, if it exists, would include such things, much less an amero currency or any cession of sovereignty.
Read entire article
From:Phyllis Schlafly 10-10-07 column
"Rep. Duncan Hunter's (R-CA) amendment to prohibit the use of federal funds for SPP working groups, which passed the House by the remarkable bipartisan vote of 362 to 63 on July 24, 2007.
The Hudson White Paper suggests that it might be "necessary" for SPP to change its name and acronym. It is unlikely that a change of name will silence the American people who are outraged by the SPP's goals and process."
...As well they should be. Treaties require a super-majority in the Senate, not secretive little groups of federal officials empowered to cede large or small attributes of sovereignty. It is especially egregious when the sum of the negotiations could be so momentous, and the hiddenness of the process essentially confesses that officials know that there would be great popular revulsion against it.

American Major Media News Blackout On Islamic Killing Of A Professor On A Swedish University Campus For Publicizing Islamic Atrocities
This is what the transitions to dark ages look like, scholars are killed for their beliefs, as part of a terror offensive under the War of Religion, and those who should speak are silent. Valuing openness to diversity, which includes the below kind of diversity, should now be seen as highly questionable. If it is said to be riches and strength to be open to diversity of methods of public persuasion and cultural influence as the below-described, what would poverty and weakness be then?
From: GreensPiece Monday, December 17, 2007 attacked with an edged weapon in a campus building. His assailant inflicted multiple wounds on his neck, from which, despite surgeons’ efforts to save him, he soon died. He left behind a widow, Runa, and a three-year-old daughter.
Deniz was a Christian Assyrian who immigrated to Sweden from Turkey with his family as a child. His forebears were survivors of one of the great historical crimes of the last century: the Ottoman Empire’s jihad genocides against its Christian minorities during World War I and thereafter. That Ottoman Muslims – Turks, Kurds and Arabs – carried out a genocide against the Armenians of that empire has been firmly established (despite continuing Turkish denials) due to the work of Vahakn Dadrian and others, but their simultaneous butchery of Assyrians, Nestoreans and Greeks is far less well-known.
Fuat Deniz was trying to change that. His academic research focused on the Assyrian genocide, an episode on which he had become an authority. In fact, he was slated to speak Sunday at an international conference on Assyrian identity and the Assyrian genocide held at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands.
He never made it – and his academic colleagues are now in fear for their own lives. For, according to Professor David Gaunt of Sweden’s Södertörn University College, who worked with Deniz, this was only the latest incident in a campaign of intimidation carried out against academics in his field. In a story in Saturday’s edition of the Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet, Gaunt told of being tailed by security police during travels in Turkey and subjected to a smear campaign in the Turkish press. Moreover, Gaunt told the paper, “On several occasions at our seminars people would attend claiming to be journalists, only to then walk around photographing delegates.”
“All those interested in Christian minorities in Turkey are considered a threat,” he added.
And they are a threat to more than just Turkish sensitivities. At a European Parliament conference held Mar. 26 in Brussels, panelists declared that Turkey, which is trying to gain admittance to the European Union, must acknowledge its Ottoman-era genocides and open its archives from the period before being allowed to do so. Speakers included members of the European Parliament from Sweden and Germany – and Professor Gaunt.
Turkey has a great deal to cover up, as an extensively documented article in the Canadian journal Genocide Studies and Prevention reveals. Writing in the journal’s December 2006 issue, Florida International University Law School Professor Hannibal Travis argues that “the hesitation to recognize the Assyrian genocide is unjustified, for the evidence is overwhelming that Turks and their Kurdish allies massacred tens, and more likely hundreds, of thousands of Assyrians in order to exterminate the Christian population.” Citing contemporary American and British press dispatches, the famous British Foreign Office “Blue Book,” eywitness accounts from both victims and German military officers assigned to the Ottoman Empire (a German ally) during World War I, and many other sources, Travis paints an appalling picture of massacre, plunder, rapine and scarcely imaginable suffering. As many as a quarter of a million Assyrians and other Christians perished along with the more than one million Armenians who died.
The evidence also makes clear that, like the attacks on the Armenians, this was emphatically a jihad genocide. As Travis notes, “On November 14 1914, less than two weeks after the Ottoman Empire declared war on the Entente (Great Britain, France, and Russia), the Sultan, still acting as a figurehead for the Young Turk regime, declared a jihad or holy war ‘against the enemies of Islam, who have proven their hostility by their attacks on the Caliphate.’ The next day, a key CUP (Committee of Union and Progress – the ‘Young Turks’) official led a march through Istanbul ‘meant to demonstrate the people’s agreement with the Sultan’s declaration of holy war against the enemies of Islam.’ The sheikh al-Islam, a CUP appointee and the highest religious authority in the Ottoman regime, endorsed the declaration of jihad and proclaimed it in print; violence against Christian Armenians quickly followed. These declarations of jihad ‘incited wrath toward Christian minorities in the Ottoman lands and ... later facilitated the government’s program of Genocide against the Armenians’ – and, as it happened, the Assyrians.”
That Fuat Deniz’s killer, who remains at large, was carrying on the jihad tradition is strongly indicated by the cause of the professor’s death: multiple wounds with an edged weapon to the neck. This is the manner of killing directly mandated by Islam’s prophet Muhammad in two Qur’anic verses:
Sura 8, Verse 12 – Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: Smite ye above their necks ...”
Sura 47, Verse 4 – Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), Smite at their necks ...
Should this prove to be the case, Fuat Deniz would not be the first descendant of jihad genocide survivors to pay with his life for resisting Turkish Muslims’ decades-long antagonism toward the truth. On Jan. 19, newspaper editor Hrant Dink was gunned down in front of the Istanbul office of his bilingual Turkish-Armenian weekly newspaper, Agos. With his resolute candor about the Armenian genocide, Dink had long been a thorn in the side of Turkish authorities, who charged him repeatedly with the “crime” of “insulting Turkishness.” His confessed killer, a teenager who was heard to shout “I shot the infidel” as he was leaving the scene, was later shown after his arrest in a video clip on Turkish television, unrepentantly posing with the crescent-emblazoned Turkish flag as his police captors beamed in approval.
Kudos to Baron Bodissey at Gates of Vienna for breaking this story on this side of the pond.

Valuing Openness to Diversity , Including Islamic Immigration, Is Not Compatible With The Continuity Of The Advancement Of Civilization
|The more Islamic a population becomes, the less it is capable of maintaining the continuity of the advancement of civilization. If openness to diversity is to be held as a value, it becomes also necessary to dishonestly revise history so as to show Islamic influxes as compatible with the maintenance of civilization and its expansion. Below is an example of the assertion and rebuttal of Islamic populations' supposed positive effect on the maintenance of the upbuilding of civilization. |

EDITOR'S NOTE: There is great need for setting the record straight on the history of the Middle East. The revisionism of the last few years will lead Western Civilization into bondage. The following letter by Assyrian scholar Peter BetBasoo is a very important step in the right direction. It was sent by Assyrian scholar Peter BetBasoo to Carly Fiorina, CEO of Hewlett Packard Corporation, in response to a speech she presented [...]
"its doctors examined the human body, and found new cures for disease."
The overwhelming majority of these doctors (99%) were Assyrians. In the fourth, fifth, and sixth centuries Assyrians began a systematic translation of the Greek body of knowledge into Assyrian. At first, they concentrated on the religious works but then quickly moved to science, philosophy and medicine. Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Galen, and many others were translated into Assyrian, and from Assyrian into Arabic. [...]
"Its astronomers looked into the heavens, named the stars, and paved the way for space travel and exploration."
This is a bit melodramatic. In fact, the astronomers you refer to were not Arabs but Chaldeans and Babylonians (of present day south-Iraq), who for millennia were known as astronomers and astrologers, and who were forcibly Arabized and Islamized - so rapidly that by 750 A.D. they had disappeared completely. [...] The Islamic civilization is not a progressive force, it is a regressive force; it does not give impetus, it retards. The great civilization you describe was not an Arab/Muslim accomplishment, it was an Assyrian accomplishment that Arabs expropriated and subsequently lost when they drained, through the forced conversion of Assyrians to Islam, the source of the intellectual vitality that propelled it. What other Arab/Muslim civilization has risen since? What other Arab/Muslim successes can we cite?
"and perhaps we can learn a lesson from his [Suleiman] example: It was leadership based on meritocracy, not inheritance. It was leadership that harnessed the full capabilities of a very diverse population that included Christianity, Islamic, and Jewish traditions."
In fact, the Ottomans were extremely oppressive to non-Muslims. [...]
Arabs/Muslims are engaged in an explicit campaign of destruction and expropriation of cultures and communities, identities and ideas. Wherever Arab/Muslim civilization encounters a non-Arab/Muslim one, it attempts to destroy it (as the Buddhist statues in Afghanistan were destroyed, as Persepolis was destroyed by the Ayotollah Khomeini).
This is a pattern that has been recurring since the advent of Islam, 1400 years ago, and is amply substantiated by the historical record. If the "foreign" culture cannot be destroyed, then it is expropriated, and revisionist historians claim that it is and was Arab, as is the case of most of the Arab "accomplishments" you cited in your speech.[...]
Peter BetBasoo is an Assyrian from Iraq and the co-founder and director of the Assyrian International News Agency (www.aina.org). He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org."

Motives can be inferred, on the part of those who know what they're about, in enthusing over immigration cohorts, when such official enthusiasm goes higher, as the cohort is more hostile or more damaging in general.
Power means the authority to do damage to people, not the ability to command them to do what they already want to do.
Therefore, the more such preference officials show for increasing damage, the more they wish for power in the above sense.
The more damage a group of immigrants can be expected to do, to the continuity of the advancement of civilization, the higher they are privileged by power-greedy officialdom and its scholars. The more damage of this kind such a group is expected to do, and the more they are able to do this to a society in proportion as that society has been resistant to dictatorship, the more that group will be awarded privilege of relative guiltlessness and no end of excuse-making. The motivation shows especially through the systematic character of the preferences for one group over another; the way increase of A predictably yields increase of B.

Islam & Terrorism
By David Yerushalmi
Sun, July 08, 2007,[...]
adherents of authoritative Shari’a accept the notion of war to overthrow the US government and other Western nations given the right conditions. And, of course, we see what seems to be a never ending stream of Jihadists fully committed to this goal, which suggests that there is at least a consensus among some Muslims that the conditions have been met for war.
Now, read existing US law as codified in Title 18 (the federal criminal code), Section 2385:
§ 2385. Advocating overthrow of Government"
