October 13, 2014, 5:11 pmHappy Columbus Day: Politically Incorrect version
A politically incorrect view of Columbus Day (yes, it's tied to Islam)
Written by Allen West on October 13, 2014
Happy Columbus Day! Now, I know that's going to upset some folks who want to rename this Indigenous People's Day. But I for one am very appreciative for the endeavor upon which Genoan Christopher Columbus embarked upon in 1492.
It's time for a little trek through history because Columbus' achievement is relevant to where we are today.
To understand his achievement, we need to put the whole episode into context.
After Mohammad's conquest of Mecca circa 628 AD, his strategic objective went beyond what we know as the Arabian peninsula. Upon his death, that vision was still maintained by what would be known as the Umayyad Caliphate. It was under this Caliphate that Islam violently expanded across North Africa, after which the North African Berbers, Moors, and the Islamic armies turned their sights across the Mediterranean towards the Iberian Peninsula and Europe.
The Islamic conquest of what is now Spain and Portugal began in 711 and lasted fully until 718 when the conquered land was renamed Al Andalusia � something which modern Islamo-fascists and jihadists use today. Between 728 and 732 AD, the Islamic armies sought to expand their reach beyond Spain into what is now France.
It was in 721 AD at the Battle of Toulouse where a victorious Christian army led by Duke Odo of Aquitaine over an Umayyad Islamic army checked the spread of Umayyad control. And 11 years later in 732 AD at the Battle of Tours it was Charles "The Hammer" Martel who gave the Umayyad caliphate a serious setback in its objective of conquering Europe from the east.
It also signaled the beginning of Islamic rule in the Iberian peninsula and what became known as the "Reconquista." It took some 781 years for the Spanish to break the stranglehold of the Islamic occupation, but it finally came with the combined strength of Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castille in 1492 � with the fall of Grenada � check out one of Charleston Heston's great movies, "El Cid," to gather an understanding of the conflicts on the Iberian peninsula at the time.
However, something happened before the success of Ferdinand and Isabella in Spain � Constantinople fell in 1453 to the Ottoman Turks and signaled a huge defeat for what had been known as the center of the Eastern Roman Catholic empire. It was the fulfillment of the letter which Mohammad had sent to the Byzantine Emperor Heraclius way back around 628 AD.
Most importantly, it cut off the eastward trade route to the Indies and China, critical for European commerce. Subsequently there would be two major engagements that were successful in checking the Islamic conquest of Europe: one was the naval battle of Lepanto in 1571 and the other was the Battle of Vienna in 1683 � of course Europe today still remains under siege from Islamo-fascism and jihadism.
So the man from Genoa, Christopher Columbus, stepped forward not only to challenge the belief that the world was flat, but to find a westward route by sea to the Indies and China. With the defeat of the Islamic armies, Columbus believed he could find favor with Ferdinand and Isabella, and indeed Isabella took a liking and supported Columbus' endeavor. So we can thank Islamic conquest for inspiring Columbus to find a new trade route west.
Many condemn Columbus for his endeavor because of the clash of civilizations, which brought disease and death to the indigenous peoples of the New World. As well, with a completely warranted fear of the spread of Islam, the Spanish had adopted Roman Catholicism as a state-sponsored religion and hoped to spread it to the New World in order to counter Islam.
Another horrific residual effect from the Islamic conquest of over 780 years was the Spanish Inquisition, which had abhorrent effects on the Jewish community, which had fled the Middle East and the Holy Land because of Islamic conquest.
This is why we don't have a state-sponsored religion in America, but we do have a Judeo-Christian faith heritage, and the freedom to practice.
The Jewish diaspora began under Roman Emperor Hadrian around 135 AD after the unsuccessful Bar Kokhba revolt where upon victory, Hadrian renamed Judea as Palaestinia, and Jerusalem became known as the Roman province of Aeolia Capitolina. Of course after Mohammed's rise, a thriving Jewish community was driven from the Middle East as well � so we now know who are the real occupiers forcing people from their traditional homelands.
But, today we celebrate and remember this Italian explorer who realized the world needed a new trade route because of Islamic conquest � and just so you know, the Umayyad caliphate was followed by the Abbasid caliphate. And here we are today, some 1400 years later, still confronting Islamic conquest by violence, displacement of other indigenous religions by Islam, and the establishment of a caliphate.
We thank Christopher Columbus, but now the world needs another Charles Martel.

October 13, 2014, 12:19 amDoctor warns why CDC is 'lying' about ebola
October 11, 2014, 1:03 amHow to solve the ebola problem in the U.S.
1. Restrict travel from countries that are infested with the ebola virus.
2. Get a new U.S. president.
October 11, 2014, 12:59 amThink we need voter I.D.?
Ever wonder why Republicans want voter ID.?
* In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Romney. (A mathematical and statistical impossibility).
* In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations - and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. (Another statistical impossibility).
* In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.
* In St. Lucie County, FL, there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.
* The National SEAL Museum , a polling location in St. Lucie County, FL had a 158% voter turnout.
* Palm Beach County , FL had a 141% voter turnout.
* In one Ohio County , Obama won by 108% of the total number of eligible voters.
NOTE: Obama won in every state that did not require a Photo ID and lost in every state that did require a Photo ID in order to vote. Imagine that.....
ARE WE THE DUMBEST NATION ON THE PLANET OR WHAT.?
It seems like such a "common sense" thing but obvious now WHY the dems don't want it! This voter fraud (by either side) has got to be stopped!
October 7, 2014, 11:32 pmNot just Ebola- D68 kills
Enterovirus D68 Kills, Too
While much of the media focus on Ebola and it's potential spread, another virus is infecting and killing people across the country. USA Today reports, "The CDC has confirmed 594 people across 43 states and the District of Columbia with illness caused by enterovirus D68 between mid-August and Monday. The virus has been detected in four other people who have died, the centers said. The role EV-D68 played in these deaths is unclear; state and local health departments are investigating, the CDC said." On Monday, a four-year-old New Jersey boy succumbed to D68. According to USA Today, "The virus is spread through close contact with infected people. Coughs, sneezes and touching objects or surfaces with the virus are common ways to become infected, the health department said." Keep a close eye on this one.
October 7, 2014, 11:30 pmWhen a wife goes missing in Texas
What Happens When a Wife Goes Missing in Texas . . .
A husband went to the sheriff's department to report that his wife was missing:
Husband - I've lost my wife. She went shopping yesterday and has not yet come home.
Sergeant - What is her height?
Husband - Gee , I really never noticed. Maybe about five feet tall.
Sergeant - Build?
Husband - Not slim, not really fat.
Sergeant - Color of eyes?
Husband - Never noticed.
Sergeant - Color of hair?
Husband - Changes a couple times a year . . . maybe red.
Sergeant - What was she wearing?
Husband - Could have been a skirt or shorts. I don't remember exactly.
Sergeant - Did she go in a car?
Husband - No, she went in my truck.
Sergeant - What kind of truck was it?
Husband - Brand new Ford F150 with Eco -boost V6 engine special ordered with manual transmission, four-wheel drive, tinted windows, custom matching white cover for the bed, special alloy wheels and off road Michelins. Wife put a small scratch on the driver's side door.
At this point the husband started tearing up a little and almost cried.
Sergeant - Don't worry, Bubba . . . We'll find your truck.

October 6, 2014, 12:17 amQuote of the year
Quote of the day, no, of the week, make that a month. Yet it probably is quote of the year ! No. DECADE. Wait a minute. It's the greatest quote ever !
"My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I'm glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know... the remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn't do that and I'm proud of that. Very proud. I would say that's a major accomplishment."
- Hillary Clinton 11 March 2014
Could someone please tell me what she just said?
And she may be running for President?
October 4, 2014, 12:01 amRe: ISIS, beheadings, etc...
So ISIS has beheaded another person and is threatening another one, and the world, by saying he's next.
Here's an idea....... a lot of Middle Easterners, including Syrians, Iranians, Iraqis, etc....want their kids educated in the U.S. and send them to American universities.
That being the case, we should broadcast on the media:
The next beheadings will not be the person you mentioned, they will be the 70,000 college students in our country from Iran and Syria that we just rounded up.
October 3, 2014, 12:52 amThe Fence Test
Oh how true:
The Fence Test
You can't get any more accurate than this!
This is straight-forward country-thinking
Which side of the fence?
If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!
If a Republican doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a Democrat doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
If a Democrat is down-and-out he wonders who is going to take care of him.
If a Republican doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
A Democrat demands that those they don't like be shut down.
If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.
If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
If a Democrat decides he needs health care, he demands that the rest of us pay for his.
If a Republican reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good (head-nodding) laugh.
A Democrat will delete it because he's "offended" (or more likely, denies it).
Well, I forwarded it.
October 2, 2014, 12:59 amU.S. child dies from enterovirusD68
Washington (AFP) - A child in the northeastern US state of Rhode Island has become the first to die from an ongoing outbreak of a respiratory virus, enterovirus D68, health officials said Wednesday.
The smart money says this came across the border.
One commenter on the headline above:
Search for "Thousands of immigrants skipped mandated follow-up appointment" by the Associated Press a few days ago.
Sully16 called this one when the latest wave of coming across the border started. Sad.
September 28, 2014, 6:37 pmTruck seats
I stopped by the Ford Dealership yesterday, for a look at the new F 150 pickup. Just for fun, I took it out for a test drive. I wanted to sense that new "feel" before they become extinct.
The salesman (a black man wearing an Obama "change" lapel pin) sat in the passenger seat describing the truck and all its "wonderful" options.
The seats were of particular interest. He explained that the seats directed warm air to your butt in the winter and directed cool air to your butt in the summer heat.
Feeling like messing with him, I mentioned that this must be a Republican truck.
Looking a bit angry, he asked why I thought it was a Republican truck.
I explained that if it were an Obama truck, the seats would just blow smoke up your ass year-round.
I had to walk back to the dealership. Guy had no sense of humor.
September 27, 2014, 7:57 pmObama: Military must now accept illegals
First time in U.S. history, read the article, some are MS13
September 25, 2014, 7:19 pm68% of Dems think global warming greater threat than ISIS
Columnist Arnold Ahlert:
"A staggering 68 percent of Democrats consider global climate change a greater threat to the United States than either Al Qaeda at 67 percent, or ISIS at 65 percent. ... One is left to wonder whether Democrat 'true believers,' who view global climate change as a greater threat than Islamic terror, are swayed by the possibility of 'imminent' domestic terror attacks. Perhaps they need reminding that 9/11 was a 'two-fer,' as in a terrorist attack that also precipitated an environmental disaster in Lower Manhattan. Nor does it take much of an imagination to envision the 'environmental impact' of a 'dirty' bomb, or outright nuke, detonated in an American city. It takes even less of an imagination to know how a majority of Americans would view the warped priories of Democrats if Islamic terrorists make good on any of their murderous designs. Perhaps that majority should remember those priorities in November."
