Muslim Mania and Other Insanities

The world is having a conniption fit seizure, “triggered” by Donald
Trump.  The main victim of this ongoing
seizure is the MSM. Call it cultural and political epilepsy, it’s not pretty to look at.  I am reminded of a childhood experience with witnessing
these seizures.

The Bridges to Islam, or Interfaith Dialogue.

Muslims know that Islam is not negotiable.

In grade school, for a reason never explained to me
or to anyone else, my class for years was burdened with a boy (Robert) who was
not only mentally ill and deficient in how to perform every day actions (such
as reading or tying his shoe laces), but was subject to unarticulated fits in
class when he drooled, frothed at the mouth, and became violent, so violent
that it would require all the strength of a nun (and the nuns in my school were
mostly burly and hefty; one of them, the gargantuan Sister Barbarossa, could
beat up a school foot ball player) to subdue him – Robert was as strong as a
bull – but also need the help of the bigger boys to literally hold him down in
his seat-desk until an ambulance showed up to take him away.
 The episode
that sticks in my mind now, however, is when he stood at the top of a small
cliff that overlooked the neighboring school playground and began to throw
rocks at us. Big rocks.
It was never revealed why Robert was even in the
school and not in a facility that could treat and handle his condition. It was
a Catholic, private school (Nativity Parish School) and cost money to send a
child there; so doubtless he was enrolled there by state mandate, or because of
some dangerous physician’s recommendation, and so someone else was paying the
bill.
The behavior of the MSM towards President Trump and
his surprising, “shock –to-the-system” election in November are so similar to
Robert’s frequent and frightening outbursts that I couldn’t help but dwell on
the parallels. In fact, it has been the MSM’s behavior that caused me to recall
Robert.
Wikipedia writes:
Epileptic seizures are the result of
excessive and abnormal nerve cell activity in the cortex
of the brain
…. The word epilepsy is from Ancient Greek:
ἐπιλαμβάνειν ” to seize, possess, or afflict.”
Daniel Greenfield’s article “If
We Don’t Let In Muslims To America They’ll Kill Us
” of February 10th
highlights the madness that has gripped the MSM and many politicians. His
column title was taken directly from a statement by Connecticut Senator  Chris Murphy:
Trump’s
executive order is “going
to get Americans killed
,” Senator Murphy declared.

The Connecticut Democrat was joining a chorus of the clueless warning us that
if we don’t let Muslims into America, they’ll join ISIS and kill us.


Singing their brains out in the same stupid chorus were Senator McCain and
Senator Graham (“a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism”),
Senator Ben Sasse (“the terrorist recruiters win by telling kids that America
is banning Muslims”) and Senator Heitkamp (“confirms the lie terrorists tell
their recruits: that America is waging a
war on Islam.
”)….
Senator
Cardin went one better by whining that keeping potential Islamic terrorists
out, “promises to make the U.S. less safe and places our courageous servicemen
and women in even greater danger as they fight against terrorism.” Just tell it
to the Marines shot and killed by a Muslim immigrant at a Chattanooga
recruiting station and Naval reserve center.

There’s only one problem with this hostage crisis theory of immigration. It’s
insane.

The
manly way to confront Islam
Greenfield asks the logical question,
“If keeping
Muslim migrants out of America will make them kill us, why would we let them
in?”
But logic and reason are not buffered into the minds of anti-immigrant
activists and fascists. You may as well prescribe Xanex to a raving berserker
and expect him to count backwards from 100.
I remarked in a comment on Greenfield’s column:
But
do politicians like Senator Murphy really hate this country so much that they’d
want to expose it and its citizens to harm? I don’t know. Examining the
contents of insane men’s heads is not a wholesome or inspiring profession. But
the fundamental problem with him and his ilk in the whole anti-immigration ban
movement from Capitol Hill to the Women’s
March
to the rioting Antifa
ninja goons of Berkeley
and the immigrant riots that are
reducing Paris, France to a shell of it former self to the 9th Federal District
Court and Judge
Robart’s
bench to
Angela Merkel’s policies
, is that their hold on causo-connections in
reality, in their thinking, and in their actions is tenuous, if not
non-existent. That deficiency does not sire logic, but instead advances the
fulfillment of a tenacious Marxist fantasy that imperils nations and civilized
society. If they wish it to be true, then it will become true.
 I’ve always said that when you tell the “needy”
and the “oppressed to  “come and get it,”
your pockets will soon be empty: Altruism
kills
. It kills nations and cultures. Look at France, Sweden, and
Germany.  Doing the “right thing” – the
altruist thing – to atone for past real or alleged crimes against groups, by
allowing millions of savages entry into a civilized nation, is costing those
countries untold millions in damages and countless crimes committed again the
indigenous citizens. It was a longish comment but there were relevant points to
make. There have been no rebuttals that count for anything, except for
emotionalist rants.
Unswerving fealty to
the Progressive/Marxist philosophy that currently governs economics, political
principles, social relationships, education, freedom of speech and the First
Amendment, et. al, has no basis in
reality but is rooted in the death grips of fantasy worship and wishful
thinking and a desire to bring the great down to the level of the mediocre.
That agenda has always failed and will always fail, no matter how many times
it’s advocated and imposed and regardless of the evidence of the consequent and
incalculable death and misery it’s caused. They say, “Drink the poison,
it’s nutritious! Eat your spinach, never mind that it’s laced with
arsenic!”
More insanity has emanated from our holier- than-thou Social Justice
Warrior in the Vatican “Islamic
terrorism doesn’t exist.”
  Pope
Francis announces and chooses to not let anyone off the hook of his
self-righteousness:
In an impassioned address Friday, Pope Francis
denied the existence of Islamic terrorism, while simultaneously asserting that
“the ecological crisis is real.”
On an
“ecological” note, he did not condemn the Paris rioters for burning cars and
tires in the street, releasing clouds of poisonous black smoke into the sky. I
guess the smoke was irrelevant. After all, Pope Francis will not be coated with
it.
“Christian
terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism
does not exist. They do not exist,” Francis said in his speech to a world meeting of populist movements.
What
he apparently meant is that not all Christians are terrorists and not all
Muslims are terrorists—a fact evident to all—yet his words also seemed to
suggest that no specifically Islamic form of terrorism exists in the world, an
assertion that stands in stark contradiction to established fact.
Au contraire, Francis, afraid of “offending” the
most sensitive members of the most belligerent religion in modern history, Christian
and Jewish terrorism doesn’t exist. Only Islamic. Like any politically correct
halfwit, he chooses not to acknowledge facts and Islamic terrorism.
Still, Pope Francis, the Argentine communist, like
senorita Nina, will
not dance with reality, and absolutely refuses to engage with it.
Speaking of immigration to the U.S., Ann Corcoran of The Center for Security
Policy
, details the ongoing influx of Muslims into the U.S. in her Refugee
Resettlement and the Hijra to America
(Center for Security Policy, 2015),
an influx that is deliberate and, for all practical purposes, “on time” and
growing per Islamic doctrine and per the American government’s skewered immigration
policy, that favors “refugees” from “war-torn” regions and from most Islamic
pest holes. She writes:
Islamic doctrine
holds that Mohammed is the perfect Muslim and, therefore, that emulation of his
life is evidence of the highest level of devotion for the faithful. According
to the sacred texts and traditions of Islam , Mohammed left his home town of
Mecca in the 7th century and traveled 
with a small band of followers  to
the city of Yatrib (now Medina) , in what has become known as the hijra (migration). He did so with the
intent of establishing a new base of operations from which to conquer and rule.
Hijra remains the
model to this day for jihadists who seek to populate and dominate new
lands.  Their migrations are not for the
purpose of assimilating peacefully in a new host nation, adopting as their own
its traditions and legal systems. Rather, Mohammed’s followers, in keeping with
the example established by their prophet , are driven first to colonize and
then to transform non-Muslim target societies – whether through violent means
or via stealthy, pre-violent ones favored by the Muslim Brotherhood when it is
not powerful enough to use violence decisively. (p. 7)

Corcoran quotes
the unstoppable Geert
Wilders
, the Dutch politician who stands a good chance of upending the
Dutch government come the next elections later this year.
After
citing former Libyan leader Moammar
Quadafi
’s famous observation that Europe would be conquered without guns
and swords, but with Muslim migrants over-running the Continent, Dutch
Parliamentarian and leader of the Party for Freedom
Geert Wilders….said in his endorsement of [Sam Solomon’s] Modern
Day Trojan Horse
:
*[O]ne
can see that the threat from Islam doesn’t just come in the form of Islamic terrorism
by suicide bombers trying to wreak havoc in our cities. More often, it comes in
the form of gradual and incremental transformation of our societies and legal
systems, or what is termed ‘Islamisation of our democratic societies by the
vast growing numbers of Muslim immigrants who are importing Islam into Western
way of life.
Many
in the West do not see the dangers  that
Islamisation poses to our civilisation. Especially he ruling elite, who refuse
to take action to counter  Islamisation
by prohibiting  Sharia Law, or to take measures to regulate mass immigration. (emphasis added)
Wilders
says it more clearly and with more authority than I can muster from having
observed only a small but significant wedge of the Muslim immigration process
taking place in America over the last seven years. [p. 13-14]
Corcoran clarifies some issues that have been largely lost in the vociferous
hullabaloo about the “evil” of President Trump’s alleged
“Muslim ban,”
issues lost, forgotten, or papered over by the government and
its open-borders, pro-immigration fence gossipers.
The Refugee Act of 1980 expanded the
migration from Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, but was aimed at anther
immigrant population – largely low-skilled and poorly educated “refugees,”
supposedly all fleeing persecution, who are in need of government [i.e.,
taxpayer] support. In the early days of the program, most were escaping
Communism….The most attractive legal avenue to enter the U.S. is as a “refugee”
or successful asylum seeker, because, in such cases, one is given a case worker
to help secure employment and is immediately eligible for all forms of welfare.
(brackets mine)
It
should be further noted that there is often confusion about the definition of a
refugee and someone granted political asylum (an asylee). A refugee or asylum
seeker must prove that he or she is persecuted for one of several reasons  — political persecution, religion,
nationality, or race – and cannot return safely to one’s country of origin.
The
difference between the two is how they reach America. A refugee is selected and
screened abroad and flown here (at taxpayer expense), while an asylum seeker
reaches our borders on his or her own steam and then asks for asylum to be
granted. (p. 15)

The
androgynous David by Donatello
(1440s?)

Museo Nazionale del
Bargello

I should mention at this point Ted Kennedy’s Immigration
and Nationality Act of 1965
, or the Hart-Celler Act, as vile and malicious
a piece of legislation as was ever conceived vis-à-vis immigration issues.
The
Hart–Celler Act of 1965 marked a radical break from the immigration policies of
the past. Previous laws restricted immigration from Asia and Africa, and gave
preference to northern and western Europeans over southern and eastern
Europeans.[2]
In the 1960s, the United States faced both foreign and domestic pressures to
change its nation-based formula, which was regarded as a system that
discriminated based on an individual’s place of birth.
Doubtless, the Hart-Celler Act fueled the passage
of the Refugee
Resettlement Act of 1980
, which is the central focus of Corcoran’s book.
The Hart-Celler
Act
purports to fight “racism” by being racist to its roots. In practice
this is not how it works out. Christians and other non-Muslim refugees and
asylum seekers, even though they have been demonstrably persecuted or the
object of literal genocide (such as the Yazids
and Christians
) have been given short shrift, while the government, working
with so-called “charities,” bestow overwhelming preference to Muslims of all hues
, most of them assimilation-resistant and often overtly hostile to assimilation.
Indeed, these Muslim groups expect Americans to
assimilate in deference and in submission to Islam. Assimilation to a host
culture (and obeisance to its legal structure) has never been the goal of Muslim
“resettlement,” but rather conquest by demographics. This is in conformance to
the Muslim
Brotherhood explanatory memorandum of 1991
, not only in terms of
demographics, but also in “civilizational jihad” against a country’s core
institutions, such as its legal foundations
(to elevate Sharia
law over
Western law) .
The federal government is the taxpayer-filled
trough from which many “private” so-called charities dip their snouts to enable
especially Muslim resettlement in the U.S.  Corcoran identifies the culprits (although I would
call them swine, also because their administrators profit personally from the
gratuities to be had from the refugee dole). The following are the main “charities”
listed by Corcoran together with their federal tax returns per their total
revenues:
The Church World
Service (CWS):  total revenue – $76,185,774
Ethiopian Community
Development Council (ECDC) secular: total revenue –  $15,244,802
Hebrew Migration
Ministries (EMM) (Officially The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society of the
Protestant Episcopal Church in the USA: total revenue – $17,365,325
Under the name of
the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS): total revenue — $25,418,714
International Rescue
Committee (IRC) secular: total revenue – $456,122,865
US Committee for
Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) secular: total revenue – $39,205,548
Lutheran Immigration
and Refugee Services (LIRS): total revenue – $43,563,804
United States
Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB): total revenue – approx. $70,975,237
(according to its Annual Report 2014
World Relief
Corporation (WR): total revenue – and $56,842,649
(pp.  51-56)
No chump change here. The top salaries of many of the
administrators are uniformly over $200,000 a year. While they are eager to
bring in countless “poor,” the administrators enrich themselves, beyond the
dreams of actual wage-earners and people who do productive work. You can bet
that they do not live anywhere close to a Muslim “community.”
 Corcoran
further notes:
The
USCCB, by the way, resettles the largest number of refugees in the US with the
help of Catholic Charities located throughout America. They make no effort to
single out Christians for resettlement and in fact, in 2013…were requesting
that the U.S. State Department bring more Rohingya Muslims from Burma (Mynmar)
to America. (p. 55)

Alruism is where the
money is.
….As
we learned earlier in this report, the US resettles more refugees than all
other nations combined. (p. 57)
Corcoran’s book is an invaluable, revealing study, which
among other things, sheds unflattering light on the “big business” of refugee
resettlement. It is a kind of police “rap sheet.”
These well-compensated refugee “resettlers” all suffer from
moral epilepsy. They are willing to throw rocks at America as long as there’s money in it.

    Hello.
    I've just discovered your blog today, Mr. Cline.
    I've seen your referencing you Catholic school upbringing and your remarks regarding Pope Francis.
    I've a few questions:

    Are you Catholic?
    What are we to make of Francis?

    If Catholic,
    What are your thoughts on the USCCB?
    Of Vatican 2?
    Of the Message of Fatima and its relation to Islam and Communism today?
    Was Russia properly consecrated to the Immaculate Heart?
    Any thoughts of the Centennial of Fatima, the 500 years of "Reformation" celebration with Catholics and Protestants? Any connections?
    Thoughts on Amoris Laetitia?

    Ever thanks!
    Priscilla
