Mainstream Media Blackout School Shooter’s Islamic Ties

By Jerry A. Kane

It seems the mainstream media are more concerned with avoiding anti-Muslim backlash than reporting the Islamic ties behind last week’s execution style murders of 11 school children in Brazil.

Portuguese headlines in the Brazilian media call Wellington Menezes de Oliveira—the 24-year-old gunman who lined up his victims, mostly girls, against the wall before shooting them in the head—a Muslim very attached to Islam.

In an interview with Rio de Janeiro radio station Band News, Roselane de Oliveira, a foster sister of the Islamist, said that her brother had no friends, spent all of his time on the Internet, and appeared to embrace Islam in recent months.

“He was so focused on things related to Islam and had let his beard grow long. He was weird, he was on the internet [sic] all day reading related issues and it was very strange, very secretive.”—Roselane de Oliveira 

Lieutenant Colonel Djalma Beltrame, Commander of the Military Police 14th Battalion, confirmed that the girl’s brother had visited Muslim sites on the Internet, and said that Oliveira had left a suicide note riddled “with disconnected sentences” and “fundamentalist tendencies.”

In the partial transcript of the suicide note below, Oliveira states how his Islamic burial should be carried out and where his body should be interred:

Should first know that the unclean can not touch me without gloves, only virgins or those who have lost their chastity after marriage and were not involved in adultery could touch me without gloves, ie no fornicator or adulterer will have direct contact with me, nor anything that is impure can play in my blood, no unclean thing can have direct contact with a virgin without your permission, those who take care of my funeral should remove all my clothing, bathe, dry off dry off and wrap me totally naked on a white sheet that this building in a bag I left in the first room on the first floor, after me involved in that water will put me in my coffin.

If possible, I want to be buried beside the grave where my mother sleeps … I need a visit from a faithful follower of God in my grave at least once, need him to pray in front of my greave asking God’s forgiveness. What I have done praying for Jesus at his coming I awaken from the sleep of death to eternal life.

The mainstream media will continue their ongoing whitewash of Islam, and last Thursday’s horrific tragedy at the Tasso da Silveira municipal school in Realengo will be remembered as another act of madness in a series of senseless murders without a religious or a political motive.

Homeowners across the nation have grown wary of the Smart Meter technology once ballyhooed by the Ruler and utility companies.

“We can imagine the day when you’ll be able to charge the battery on your plug-in hybrid car at night, because your smart meter reminded you that nighttime electricity is cheapest.—Barack Obama

Headaches, insomnia, tinnitus, and DNA breakdown are just a few of the many health problems being reported from using Smart Meters. Smart Meters are wireless transmitters that constantly emit electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs), which have been linked to health problems in “electrically hypersensitive” people.

“The scientific data tells [sic] us that 5% of the population will get sick immediately from RF [radio frequency emissions] disease, and another 10% will develop the disease over time. …

Extensive measurements have demonstrated that all of the meters measured so far … emit noise on the customer’s electric wiring in the form of high frequency voltage spikes, typically with an amplitude of 2 volts, but a frequency any ware [sic] from 4,000 Hertz, up to 60,000 Hz.  The actual frequency of the phenomena is influenced by the devices that are plugged into the customer’s power.  Some houses are much worse than others, and this observation has been confirmed by PG&E [Pacific Gas & Electric, a major utility company in California] installers that have talked to us.”—Rob States, electrical engineer, scientific consult

Health dangers are the tip of the iceberg. Some Smart Meters are defective, causing electric bills to go up rather than down after they were installed. Additionally, Reuters reports that homes with Smart Meters had no real long-term savings when compared to those without them.

“Participants who kept the monitor (…) did not manage to sustain their electricity savings any better than those without a monitor. A second finding is that certain groups of people seem more receptive to energy-saving interventions than others. A ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach for home energy monitors cannot be justified.”

So why badger and push homeowners to install Smart Meters?

Smart Meters are an energy monitoring device that constantly updates the utility company on the homeowners’ electrical use, such as when they wake up in the morning, when they go on vacation, and the kinds of appliances they use and the times they are using them.  Utility companies will be able to sell homeowners’ private, personal information to corporations and the federal government, adding more government control over people’s lives.

“We need to make sure that we’re really moving electricity in the smartest way … Eventually, we can get to a system where an electric company will be able to hold back some of the power so that maybe your air conditioner won’t operate at its peak”—Carol Browner, Energy Czar

Ironically, California is leading the charge against forcing homeowners to install the Smart Meter. California homeowners can now opt-out of the state-mandated Smart Meter program, but it’s going to cost them an additional $14 to $20 a month as well as a fee to install the old analog meter.

Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul is right. It’s time to pull the plug on mandatory smart meters.

Rep. Allen West, Continuing Revolution Rally, Washington DC 4:01 Video


Transcript of Allen West speech:

Thank you for being here because this shows your commitment to your country. This shows your commitment to the principles and values upon which this country was established. And you know some of the things that people continue to ask me, they continue to ask me ‘well, why won’t you compromise? Why won’t you negotiate?’ We’ll let me tell you something. Abraham Lincoln said very succinctly, he said ‘plant your feet in the right place and then stand firm,’ and so I’m gonna be standing firm.

When I was a young Lieutenant and I was going through airborne school, the sergeant black hat said very simply, ‘If you set the bar low, you jump low.’ You did not send us up here to set the bar low. You sent us up here with some expectations. You sent us with a mandate. You sent us up here believing that we were here to do the things, to turn around this great ship of state called the United States of America because right now, this leaderless, rudderless ship is out in the maelstrom about to get tossed on the rocks.

And I’m sick and tired of hearing everyone talk about this great constitutional, conservative grass roots movement called the tea party. I am sick and tired of them trying to blame you. I am sick and tired of them trying to castigate you in a negative manner. No one says anything about Moveon.org. No one says anything about Organizing for America. You are what this country was founded upon and I am glad to be standing here with you.

We are not here to talk about shutting down the government. But if you want to know about shutting down the government, go right over there and talk to Chuck Schumer; go talk to Harry Reid; go down to 1600 Pennsylvania and talk to the President. We’re here to talk about the incredible fiscal irresponsibility.

And I gotta tell you something. Why would I want to sit down and compromise with people who enhanced this problem we have in America with the three years of deficit spending: 1.42 trillion; 1.29 trillion; 1.65 trillion? The debt in the past four years has gone up 5 trillion dollars. Why do I want to listen to people like that? Because I don’t think that they are going to give me any good solutions.

The bottom line is this. We have got to turn this ship around. I am not going to lower my standards. I am not going to do anything but stand upon the values you sent me up her for!

For twenty two years you asked me to do one simple thing. You asked me to always protect your life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. You asked me to guard the great symbols of this country. In November of 2010 you gave me the privilege and honor to take off a uniform, put on a suit and tie, and continue to serve you.

I will continue to protect you. I will continue to protect your life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. I will not let you down!

God bless you all, God bless America, and thank you to the tea party.

Conservative- and libertarian-minded Republicans rail against the Ruler’s statist ways, yet the 2012 Republican presidential field is top heavy with “compassionate conservatives” prone to growing government.  

They talk the talk of limited government, spending cuts, and deficit reduction, but their big government voting records and policy-making decisions are stark reminders to voters that they don’t walk the walk.

Mitt Romney:  His big-government record exceeds Massachusetts RomneyCare. He supported No Child Left Behind and proposed taxpayers should purchase laptops for every child born in country. He also pushed to increase energy and farm subsidies and supports cap-and-trade and stricter mile per gallon rules for cars. His philosophy of governing can be summed up in his comment, “I’d be embarrassed if I didn’t always ask for federal money whenever I got the chance.” He earned a “C” on the Cato Institute’s governors’ report card.

Mike Huckabee:  It’s hard to find to be a bigger big-government conservative than Huckabee.  He routinely denounces economic conservatives and libertarians, and has disparaged the anti-tax Club for Growth as the “club for greed.” He proposed a national smoking ban, and thinks that “art and music are as important as math and science” in public schools, and therefore should be federally funded. He supports increased agricultural and ethanol subsidies and backs cap and trade of carbon emissions. Although he opposed ObamaCare, as governor of Arkansas he created ARKids First, a state-funded health insurance program for low-income children. He was a tax-and-spend governor who doesn’t back most conservative proposals for entitlement reform. He received an F on the Cato Institute’s governors’ report card.

Newt Gingrich:  Although it’s hard to find to be a bigger big-government conservative than Huckabee, it’s not impossible.  Recently in Iowa, Gingrich denounced anyone who dared oppose ethanol subsidies. He backed an individual mandate on healthcare at the federal level, which exceeded Romney’s state level mandate. Gingrich also promoted George Bush’s Medicare prescription-drug benefit. He’s backed increased federal involvement in education, and even suggested that the federal government pay for students to go to Disneyland when they get good grades. And never forget his New Hampshire tree-hugging summit with Al Gore and his 2008 couch-trip commercial with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declaring that “our country must take action to address climate change.” In addition, Gingrich made Alvin Toffler’s The Third Wave mandatory reading for House Republicans. Toffler wrote that the U.S. Constitution “is increasingly obsolete, and hence increasingly, if inadvertently, oppressive and dangerous to our welfare.”

Tim Pawlenty:  Although Pawlenty ended his gubernatorial reign with an “A” from Cato, it wasn’t always that way in Minnesota. He expanded the State Children’s Health Program and considered implementing a RomneyCare-light health plan. He forced statewide smoking bans in the workplace and in bars and restaurants; he increased the state’s minimum wage; he imposed some of the most aggressive and expensive renewable-energy mandates in the country, and he has been an ardent supporter of farm subsidies and ethanol as well as a true believer in man-made global warming.

Haley Barbour:  Barbour calls for cuts in defense spending and entitlements, yet state spending and taxes went up during his tenure as governor.  He received a “C” on Cato’s fiscal report card. His business friendly message is geared more for corporate cronyism than for entrepreneurs. He also thinks that the country should “proceed in national policy as if global warming is actually happening.”

Mitch Daniels:  Former budget director for George W. Bush is not a glowing credential for “limited government.” Although he received a “B” from Cato while governor, he was open to a national Value Added Tax (VAT), expanded Indiana’s Medicaid program, and has been weak in his opposition to ObamaCare. Daniels also believes in anthropogenic global warming and that humanity needs to act urgently to stop it.

These Republican presidential hopefuls are actually strident statists whose rhetoric to downsize the federal government and balance the budget shouldn’t be taken seriously.

Trump’s Refreshing Candor

by Scott Ryan

I’m a long way away from supporting Donald Trump for President but I can honestly say that as of the past few weeks, he may have moved into the second or third position for me.  My friend I.M. Kane at The Millstone Diaries published a nice piece today regarding Donald Trump’s resolute stance on the dubious origins of the Saboteur in Chief.

Regarding this odd situation, when viewed in the aggregate, the circumstances make it seem more far fetched that Obama -isn’t- covering something up.

Consider the bizarre behavior by The Saboteur himself, the media talking points campaign on the subject, the disdainful “birther” designation assigned to those who dare bring up the subject.

Consider his concealment of his own academic records (which very well may reveal something of his origin). Why would he conceal these?

Consider the fact that nobody bothered to VERIFY this CONSTITUTIONAL requirement – of a man who was the LEAST KNOWN Presidential candidate in the history of the nation. That alone is most disturbing of all in my opinion.

What did we know about him?  The few things we DID know about him is that his closest friends and confidants are radical communists and domestic terrorists.  We knew that his Pastor of 20 years is a raving lunatic who hates America and celebrated the 9/11 attacks on this country with the rest of the world’s terrorists.

We knew what he strategically proffered to us in his memoirs, which he wrote years before ever accomplishing a damned thing. In an era when marijuana inhalation or a 30 year old DUI was heretofore deemed sufficient grounds to end a political career, he cleverly inoculated himself by casually mentioning his COCAINE “experimentation in one of his books, years in advance, to give his lap-dogs in the media an excuse not to even mention it.

They never even bothered to ask him what type of cocaine he used (crack or the snorting variety?). They never asked him to define “experimenting” i.e. how many times or for how many years did he “experiment”? When was the last time? Journalist to this day, amazingly, have never even found it NOTEWORTHY that we elected America’s FIRST cocaine snorting or crack smoking President.

So should one be considered “fringe” because he or she wouldn’t be surprised if this deluded nation would allow such a monumental fraud to take place in electing this man President without asking for a birth certificate? Should we be surprised that an orgasmic media too busy fawning over him would let such a basic requirement go unchecked or even questioned? They had time to probe him about his genetic relation to Brad Pitt, which is so far down the DNA chain that the same standards show us all to be cousins of Brad Pitt, Sir Laurence Olivier or anyone else you so choose.

Trump is doing the nation a great service. I enjoyed his interview on Bill O’Reilly’s show Wednesday night but even better was his monologue on Fox & Friends the day before, probably because the pompous O’Reilly wasn’t there to interrupt Trump’s compelling train of reasoning.
