Sola Civitas: The Left Favors the State Over the People in Ferguson

Another great post submitted from the RedState on Nov. 26, 2014.

The question, just how ignorant can people be? Apparently it’s a choice. I invite you to read the RedState article below.

Michael Brown was a thief. He had used drugs, robbed a store, punched a cop, then the cop fatally shot him. Those are the facts.

To the left, that Officer Wilson was not found guilty of killing Michael Brown was an outrage. It was an outrage too when George Zimmerman was found not guilty of killing Trayvon Martin.

Essentially, the left is opposed to the people and instead prefers left-wing Democrats to the citizenry in our democratic form of government. When a jury of peers, whether a petit jury or grand jury, does not see things the way the left sees things, the system has failed, the people are stupid, and the result is an injustice.

The Grand Jury that decided not to charge Officer Wilson with a crime was made up of individuals who were chosen and empaneled while Michael Brown was still alive. They could not have foreseen the events. They are not elected officials, but private citizens who are called upon by the government to serve in a capacity on behalf of their fellow citizens.

Their role is to exam the facts of crimes in a system heavily weighted toward prosecution of crimes. They weigh those facts and balance them with laws enacted by legislators outlining the parameters by which crimes are defined. If the facts do not measure up, there is no indictment.

The private citizens who gave up their time to become intimately familiar with the facts of the case and who interviewed all the witnesses and reviewed all the physical evidence are now being second guessed by armchair liberal pundits who want Officer Wilson charged. The left is now pushing a new line that Darren Wilson’s testimony just does not make sense. They ignore that the Grand Jury treated Darren Wilson’s testimony as that of a man trying to avoid an indictment. They weighed it less than other eyewitnesses and physical testimony.

But the left does not trust the private citizenry of the United States. They want to control what we eat, how we live, our doctor-patient relationships, and every other aspect of our lives. They favor massive bureaucracies of technocrats to the people.

From Obamacare to school lunches to big gulps to Ferguson, MO, the left thinks it must control the processes of our lives and, when the citizens deviate from what they want, the citizenry must be overridden. Democrats only support democracy when their finger is on the scale to their advantage.

As they have embraced their collectivist selves, they have rejected justice in favor of social justice. Officer Darren Wilson must be sacrificed to right an accumulation of wrongs he did not commit. He must be the scapegoat for the priests of the collective.

Leftism is more and more a secular religion. And in this secular religion, the people are not allowed to read and interpret the scriptures for themselves. They need intermediaries in the form of leftwing academics and Democratic Party leaders.

Christians have solus Christus, or Christ alone, and the left has now sola civitas, the state alone. The rest of us will be made to worship accordingly.

Nonetheless, Michael Brown was a thief who met his match in a bullet fired by a police officer just trying to do his job. The evidence shows this. But the left will not be placated until there is a sacrifice to the gods of social justice, what ever that is this week.

Ezra Klein’s House of White Privilege Explains the Ferguson News

On Nov. 26, 2014 Erick Erickson wrote the following in the RedState.

I finally understand white privilege. It is a detachment that lets certain people be detached from the real world while pretending to cover it accurately and emote with it. I get it. It is the only thing that can explain this post by Ezra Klein.

Klein just cannot fathom that an eighteen year old who’d just robbed a story would tell a cop to f*ck off and try to fight the cop. He writes of Darren Wilson’s testimony before the Grand Jury:

It is unbelievable.

I mean that in the literal sense of the term: “difficult or impossible to believe.” But I want to be clear here. I’m not saying Wilson is lying. I’m not saying his testimony is false. I am saying that the events, as he describes them, are simply bizarre. His story is difficult to believe.

Putting it more bluntly, it is not that Ezra Klein has never walked in Michael Brown’s shoes. It’s that he has never walked in Darren Wilson’s shoes.

He’s judging the veracity of Wilson’s statements based on Klein’s own life of privilege and detachment from the streets. Klein lives in a world where he can play dress up as a juggaloo and then cruise over to MSNBC to expound on how no one pays attention to documents more than a hundred years old like that silly constitution thing. His world of white privilege does not relate to the blue collar of existence of a beat cop and what that cop sees.

Klein spends his days trying to talk investors out of eight figure sums and Darren Wilson spends his day trying to stop thieves from stealing a few dollars of swisher sweets.

I think liberals like Klein who find Darren Wilson’s statement as simply too incredible to be true need to call their local police force and see if they can tag along in a squad car a few times. I have done it. It is quite an education.

Before Ezra Klein or other liberals choose to doubt Officer Wilson because he describes something they cannot fathom, they should recognize in their lily white world of privilege they are sheltered from much of the world by men like Darren Wilson who encounter the bad and stop it before it gets to Ezra Klein’s house of privilege.

CAIR: An Officially Designated Terrorist Organization

CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) continutes to fly under the banner of peace. The truth, CAIR leadership continues to support Hamas, Hezbollah and other radical Islamaic groups. They would life for Americans to beleive they are seeking peace when in reality the’re charter calls for the overthrow of governments and the implementation of Sharia Law. Act For America reported on Nov. 18, 2014 that CAIR has been called out as a terrorist organization by no less than the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Read their report below!

Over the weekend a blockbuster development hit the news wires: the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a wealthy OPEC nation in the Persian Gulf, released a list of 86 organizations that it has designated as terrorist organizations.

Included on the list are Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, the Taliban, Boko Haram and other well-known violent Jihadist organizations.

But the really BIG news was that number 59 on the list was none other than the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s most active Muslim Brotherhood organization.

In other words, the UAE is doing what the U.S. should have done long ago: recognized CAIR for what it is.

The designation by the UAE should come as no surprise.

Many Americans still are unaware that CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the US v. Holy Land Foundation, the largest terrorism financing prosecution in US history. In that trial, CAIR was identified as a Muslim Brotherhood organization.

The Holy Land Foundation was a Texas-based charity whose officers were sentenced in May 2009 to between 15 and 65 years in prison for funneling over $12 million to the Jihadist terrorist organization HAMAS. One of the sentenced officers, Ghassan Elashi, is the founder of CAIR’s Dallas chapter. Elashi’s illegal activities took place while he was affiliated with CAIR.

In fact, CAIR opened its first office in Washington, D.C., with the help of a $5,000 grant from the Holy Land Foundation.

In the wake of the Holy Land Foundation trial, the FBI severed ties with CAIR, which had been advising them on outreach to the Muslim community.

But the Holy Land Foundation trial and the UAE terrorist designation are merely part of the story.

CAIR is a troubling organization that can only be described as a nefarious 5th Column unit.

Here are just some of the facts and events surrounding CAIR over the years that have caused thousands of Americans to have immense concerns about the organization:

• In March 2011, Muthanna al-Hanooti, one of CAIR’s directors, was sentenced to federal prison for violating U.S. sanctions against Saddam’s Iraq.

• In 2006, the co-founder of CAIR’s parent organization, IAP (Islamic Association for Palestine), Sami Al-Arian, was sentenced to 57 months in prison on terrorism charges for financing Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a designated terrorist organization according to the US State Department.

• In 2004, CAIR-Northern Virginia director Abdurahman Alamoudi pled guilty to terrorism-related financial and conspiracy charges in 2004, which resulted in a 23-year prison sentence.

• Randall Todd Royer, who served as a communications specialist and civil rights coordinator for CAIR, trained with Lashkar-I-Taiba, an al Qaeda-tied Kashmir organization that is listed on the State Department’s international terror list. He was also indicted on charges of conspiring to help al Qaeda and the Taliban battle American troops in Afghanistan. He later pled guilty to lesser firearm-related charges and was sentenced to twenty years in prison on April 9, 2004. Royer’s illegal activities took place while he was employed by CAIR.

• In September 2003, CAIR’s former Community Affairs Director, Bassem Khafagi, pled guilty to three federal counts of bank and visa fraud and agreed to be deported to Egypt. Federal investigators said that a group Khafagi founded, the Islamic Assembly of North America, had funneled money to activities supporting terrorism and had published material advocating suicide attacks against the United States. Khafagi’s illegal activities took place while he was employed by CAIR.

• CAIR fundraiser Rabih Haddad was arrested on terrorism-related charges and was deported from the United States due to his subsequent work as Executive Director of the Global Relief Foundation, which in October 2002 was designated by the U.S. Treasury Department for financing al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. Haddad raised money for the Ann Arbor, Michigan chapter of CAIR.

• On July 4, 1998, former CAIR chairman Omar M. Ahmad, told Fremont, California’s daily newspaper, The Argus, that “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”

• On February 2, 1995, U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White named CAIR Advisory Board member and New York imam Siraj Wahhaj as one of the “unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in Egyptian Islamic Group leader “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel Rahman’s foiled plot to blow up numerous New York City monuments.

It’s certainly understandable that the United Arab Emirates would designate CAIR as a terrorist organization. The U.S. should promptly follow suit.

What’s harder to understand is why the United States has not even taken the obviously needed step of designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

History will show that this action by the UAE could very well be the lynchpin to ultimately discrediting CAIR by the entire civilized world.

Washington National Cathedral Scheduled to Host Friday Muslim “Service”

We stand incredulous at the astounding naïvete’ exhibited by the hosts of the National Cathedral extending the welcome mat to several Muslim organizations for the purpose of having a Friday prayer service this Friday at the very sacred place where we give funerals to our presidents and national heroes.

We challenge those running the nation’s one and only National Cathedral to find a mosque – anywhere in the world – inviting a rabbi, priest or pastor into that mosque to conduct a service.

Until Billy Graham is invited to deliver a sermon at the Grand Mosque in Mecca, this discussion should be closed. No capitulation. No political correctness. No submitting to this insanity!

If this has you as fired up as we are, we need your help.

Click Here to stand with us with a monthly pledge of $19 or more in support of our efforts to rise against this systematic approach to force this one-way street down our collective throats.

We are only as strong as our supporters. Your financial support is so needed to stand up and fight this insanity. Please click here to support. Any amount is appreciated.

Hope and Change Clinton Style!

The Clinton joke is on us … but it is not funny, even if you are on the left.

Clinton’s 20 Acre  $11 million mansion

Read how the joke’s on us!

Hillary Rodham Clinton, as a New York State Senator now comes under this fancy “congressional retirement staffing plan” which means that if she never gets re-elected, she STILL receives her Congressional salary until she dies. If Bill out-lives her, he then inherits HER salary until he dies. He is already getting his Presidential salary until he dies. If Hillary out-lives Bill, she also gets HIS salary until she dies, Guess who pays for that? WE DO!

It is common knowledge that in order for her to establish NY residency, they purchased a million dollar-plus house in upscale Chappaqua, New York….makes sense. They are entitled to Secret Service protection for life. Still makes sense.

Here is where it becomes interesting. Their mortgage payments hover around $10,000/month. But an extra residence had to be built by the government on the acreage to house the Secret Service Agents. Any improvement to the property is owned by the property owners…the Clinton’s. So….the Clinton’s charge the federal government $10,000 monthly rent for the use of the extra residence to house the Secret Service staff which is just about equal to their mortgage payment.

He is the ONLY ex-president to use this loophole. This means that we, the taxpayers, pay the Clinton’s, salary, mortgage, transportation, safety and security as well as the salaries for their 12 man staff and it is all perfectly legal.

Seems like they have done pretty well after Hillary reported they nearly went broke while they were in the Whitehouse.

When she runs for President, will you vote for her?
