Pamela Geller Distorts Internet Decision To Warn Of Sharia Law

The Obama administration recently snubbed calls to hand over oversight of the Internet to the United Nations-led International Telecommunication Union by instead relinquishing control to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, a nonprofit founded by the US Department of Commerce.

Immediately, right-wing activists misrepresented the decision to claim just the opposite, warning that the move will actually give the UN control of the Internet.

Today in WorldNetDaily, anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller falsely claims that President Obama gave control of the Internet to the UN and suggests that the move will lead to Islamic censorship laws and maybe even the outlawing of her website.

Global governance of the Internet. “Global governance?” As in the U.N.? And who and what drives the U.N.? The largest voting bloc at the U.N. is what drives its policies, and that is the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, or OIC. The historian Bat Ye’or describes the OIC this way: “The OIC is one of the largest intergovernmental organizations in the world. It encompasses 56 Muslim states plus the Palestinian Authority. Spread over four continents, it claims to speak in the name of the ummah (the universal Muslim community), which numbers about 1.3 billion. The OIC’s mission is to unite all Muslims worldwide by rooting them in the Koran and the Sunnah – the core of traditional Islamic civilization and values. It aims at strengthening solidarity and cooperation among all its members, in order to protect the interests of Muslims everywhere and to galvanize the ummah into a unified body.”

The Organization of the Islamic Cooperation will undoubtedly demand the suppression of websites that “insult Islam” or “encourage hatred,” and they won’t be referring to jihad forums that foment violence and incite to slaughter. The WSJ explains: “According to the administration’s announcement, the Commerce Department will not renew its agreement with Icann, which dates to 1998. This means, effective next year, the U.S. will no longer oversee the ‘root zone file,’ which contains all names and addresses for websites world-wide. If authoritarian regimes in Russia, China and elsewhere get their way, domains could be banned and new ones not approved for meddlesome groups such as Ukrainian-independence organizations or Tibetan human-rights activists.”

Readers of my website, PamelaGeller.com, are well aware of the goals of the OIC. It has already gotten passed a proposal in the U.N., backed by Muslim nations, urging the passage of laws around the world protecting religion from criticism. Islam is the only religion specifically named as deserving protection.

Websites like mine are the ones that dare speak of the truth of Islam and report on the jihad and the terrible human rights abuses, the persecution of Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, etc., the oppression of women and children, the murder of nonbelievers, the brutal imposition of Shariah law, Islamic supremacism, academic jihad, social jihad, cultural jihad, Shariah finance, stealth jihad and the galloping global jihad. The corrupt media are already subdued and self-censor. The net is all there is.

Back in 2009, Obama threatened such anti-freedom action; I wrote about it at the time. He backed off after the American people and the Congress protested.

Where are the American people now?

Michele Bachmann Calls America To Prayer

For the last few years, an event has taken place in Statuary Hall inside the US Capitol called "Washington: A Man of Prayer" at which members of Congress and Religious Right leaders gather to celebrate the anniversary of George Washington's inauguration and thank God for the blessings He has poured out upon this nation.

At last year's event, Rep. Michele Bachmann declared that 9/11 and Benghazi were God's judgment upon this nation so, logically, she will be serving as host of the event when it is held again this year, with Mike Huckabee serving as the event's emcee as folks like Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Louie Gohmert come together with Religious Right activists like Tony Perkins, Robert Jeffress, Phyllis Schlafly, Rafael Cruz, Jim Garlow, and others in what organizers hope will be a "spiritual turning point for the nation as Americans witness members of Congress reaching out to God in penitent prayers from inside the nation’s Capitol."

In an effort to promote the event, Bachmann filmed a nearly ten minute video for Birther-website WorldNetDaily in which she explained that America has been blessed because the Founding Fathers knew that "the promises of God that were given to the children of Israel in the Old Testament were also promises that we ourselves could appropriate to ourselves as a nation."

And by following the laws and values set out by God in the Book of Deuteronomy, America has prospered, Bachmann explained, warning that prosperity depends upon the nation's willingness to continue embracing and promoting these values.

"We choose life or we choose death," she said. "We choose it by whether or not we choose to live and walk out the precepts that have been set out; the precepts for life, the precepts for blessing. Or do we choose cursing and do we choose death?"

Scott Lively: The Mark Of The Beast Now Looks Like A Chick-Fil-A Sandwich

Of all the right-wing reactions to Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s quiet step back from the marriage equality debate, Scott Lively’s might just take the cake.

In a post on Matt Barber’s BarbWire today, Lively writes that although Cathy has not yet taken the “Mark of the Beast,” his decision to back out of the gay marriage debate “suggests he might be willing to take it if faced with that choice.”

“I am convinced that God is using the homosexual issue as a test of believers all over the world,” Lively continues. “What would it profit Mr. Cathy to gain the whole world (or a few more restaurants on college campuses), if his compromise of Biblical truth today makes him less able to resist the real Mark of the Beast tomorrow?”

“In my mind’s eye I used to see the Mark of the Beast as a black dot on the back of the hand,” he concludes. “Now it looks more like a Chik Fil A [sic] sandwich. I’ll never buy another one, and I hope you won’t either.”

Dan Cathy Takes the Mark of the Beast

That headline is not true. Dan Cathy of Chick Fil A has not (to my knowledge) taken the Mark of the Beast. Yet he has done something that suggests he might be willing to take it if faced with that choice, in the same way that answering a poll is an indication of how a person will vote in an election. As the Bible says in Luke 16:10, “He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much.”

I am convinced that God is using the homosexual issue as a test of believers all over the world. It’s like the “stress test” the central bankers are using to forecast which banks would fail in the event of an economic collapse. Except in this case God is testing us for what we will do in the coming moral and spiritual collapse. The Bible hasn’t changed, only the culture has changed, and believers are being “stress tested” to see whether they stand with Him or with the world on the things He says are true but which the world is pressing very hard to declare false.

The good thing about a stress test is that it gives people an opportunity to change their ways (repent) before the final exam or the big crash. God doesn’t care about Chick Fil A’s profit margins if they come at the expense of Dan Cathy’s willingness to stand up for the truth under pressure. What would it profit Mr. Cathy to gain the whole world (or a few more restaurants on college campuses), if his compromise of Biblical truth today makes him less able to resist the real Mark of the Beast tomorrow?

I’m not saying that Dan Cathy isn’t saved, but he has certainly failed the stress test, and failed the Bible-believing Christian remnant everywhere, by surrendering to the “gay” bullies. How long before we see Chick Fil A running “gay”-friendly commercials as penance for Cathy‘s “homophobia?”

There are varying theological views about what the Mark of the Beast is, or will be, and which ones among us will face that choice of taking or rejecting it. Nevertheless, it stands as a symbol to all Christians everywhere as the choice for or against Christ when the sword is on your neck and to choose Christ means to die saved, or live condemned to hell. The stress test of pressure from “gay” bullies is not life or death, but it is an indicator of whether you have the faith and courage to choose Him over the things of this world. In my mind’s eye I used to see the Mark of the Beast as a black dot on the back of the hand. Now it looks more like a Chik Fil A sandwich. I’ll never buy another one, and I hope you won’t either.
 

Right Wing Round-Up - 3/21/14

Right Wing Leftovers - 3/21/14

  • When asked if he would have beaten President Obama had he been the GOP nominee in 2012, Rick Santorum declared "without a doubt!"
  • "Ex-gay" Greg Quinlan says that gay activists are all "about dominance [and] silencing anyone who has any other opinion than the homosexual opinion."
  • FRC prays against "Transgender Bathroom Bills & Military Policy": "Intervene, Lord, for your Law is being broken! We have defied your created order replacing your laws with confusion. Cause, we pray, legislators in Maryland and other states, and the Obama administration not to add confusion to confusion as they could do. Cause your people, led by their pastors, to say, "Enough is enough!" and to exercise their voices and authority as citizens and voters to stop these and similar lawless actions."
  • Gary Bauer says that Rand Paul's call for a truce on social issues "will hurt his or any other Republican presidential possibility, if they're telling millions of American voters that make up the core of the conservative coalition that he or anybody else does not intend to deal with those issues."
  • Finally, Scott Lively is "greatly concerned about the decline of personal integrity and civility as American cultural values, which I attribute to the rise of cultural Marxism, exemplified in part by the cult of 'gay' bullies who now dominate our public discourse in virtually every sphere of society, but also by the parallel cult of pro-LGBT 'advocacy journalists' who routinely bear false witness to the public in furtherance of their shared ideology."

Ted Cruz Cites Dubious Cases To Prove Obama's 'Hostility To Religious Liberty'

While speaking yesterday with right-wing Iowa talk show host Steve Deace, Sen. Ted Cruz listed a litany of “tragic” incidents which he said are proof that “we have never seen an administration more hostile to religious liberty than the Obama administration.”

“Whether it is threatening punishment for service men and women who share their faith, whether it is just recently ordering a young service man to take off a scripture verse from outside his room on a white board that was an open forum for speech, whether it was ordering an Air Force chaplain in Alaska to delete from his blog posting the phrase ‘there are no atheists in foxholes,’ or whether it is most astonishingly persecuting the Little Sisters of the Poor,” he said.

Cruz’s claim that service members face punishment for “sharing their faith” relies on a completely discredited crusade by Fox News commentator Todd Starnes, who repeatedly misrepresents Defense Department guidelines on proselytizing and religious bias that actually date back to the Bush administration.

The Texas senator also mentioned a case at the Air Force Academy where a cadet in a leadership position wrote a Bible verse on a dormitory white board. Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Michelle D. Johnson explained that the cadet voluntarily decided to erase the verse “following discussion over the issue,” and noted that the verse “could cause subordinates to doubt the leader’s religious impartiality. With the mentorship of the active duty commanding officer as part of the discussion, the cadet squadron commander raised this potential perception and the cadet voluntarily elected to erase the scripture.” Military.com adds that “a female cadet’s attempt to show the verse was improper by writing ‘there is no evidence that God ever existed’ on the whiteboard outside her room led to two senior cadets forcibly holding her back while they wiped the board clean.”

In the other incident of supposed persecution, the website of the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage, Alaska posted an essay with the title “No Atheists in Foxholes.” After the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which also complained about an ‘Ask An Atheist Day,’ said that the posting was demeaning to non-religious service members, the essay was briefly removed from the website but later restored, this time with a disclaimer that the comments “are strictly those of the author and do not convey endorsement by the U.S. government.”

As for the Little Sisters of the Poor, the legal challenge isn’t about trying to “force individual citizens to violate tenets of their faith” by purchasing a health insurance plan that includes contraception coverage. The Little Sisters are in a church plan, Christian Brothers Trust, that is not required to provide the contraception coverage.

But according to Cruz, these are the “astonishing” cases that demonstrates the Obama administration’s supposed hostility to religious freedom.

Bryan Fischer On Immigration, The Devil, And Slavery

Bryan Fischer spent a lot of time on his radio program today railing against Republicans who support immigration reform, saying they have "sold their souls to the Devil."

Fischer then took a call from a listener named Chris who said that he had to pull his child out of the local public school because nobody spoke English while he has been unable to find work in the insulation industry because he does not speak Spanish.

That prompted Fischer to declare that Chris was literally in "a worse position than slaves because at least slaves had a job":

Paranoia-Rama: Gays Destroying The Economy, CIA's Feminist Infiltration & Antichrist Obama

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

Before the Internet becomes censored by our Chinese-Islamist overlords, right-wing figures would like you to know that America is being destroyed by feminism, gay rights and President Obama (who may or may not be the Antichrist). Not that any of that matters anyway, because it is all really a distraction from Benghazi.

5. Gay Rights Lead To Economic Collapse

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins has been dismayed by growing calls within the GOP to “agree to disagree on social issues” like marriage equality. Perkins insists that treating gay people equally under the law will have dangerous, unforeseen economic consequences.

He explains that gay rights will weaken America in the eyes of the world, encouraging countries like Russia to move against the US Dollar and throw the economy into chaos. “So there goes the economy all because we ignored the morality of the issues of this administration,” Perkins warns.

4. CIA Ruined Feminism

InfoWars host Alex Jones warned this week that “true feminism,” which he explained is all about preserving the patriarchy and maintaining high fertility rates, is under attack by Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and secret CIA agents like Gloria Steinem.

Feminism, Jones added, has become “a top down system of control used to divide and conquer and is run by powerful individuals who care little for actual women’s rights.” He also blamed “establishment feminism” for things such as genetically modified foods, vaccines, estrogen mimickers and metrosexual men.

3. Obama Giving China, Islamists Control Of The Internet

A decision to relinquish federal control of the Internet has sparked outrage from Republican politicians and Fox News pundits, who argue that the move will empower countries like China and Russia. As it turns out, the decision, which has been in the works since 1998, actually limits the influence of other governments and the United Nations.

But the world of right-wing conspiracies seem impenetrable to such facts. Take for example a recent warning from Center for Security Policy head Frank Gaffney, who predicted that “stealth jihadist groups” will now have increased control of the Internet.

2. Antichrist Alert

It turns out that Hillary Clinton isn’t the Antichrist after all, as it is Barack Obama who really has been the Antichrist all along. Mark Creech of the Christian Action League, which is the American Family Association’s North Carolina chapter, wrote that America will soon be destroyed like Babel for putting Obama, whom he seems to think is the Antichrist, in the White House.

Religious Right columnist Michael Bresciani didn’t go as far as Creech but noted that the Antichrist will look a lot like Obama: “Being the incarnation of the Devil himself means that his view is always the exact opposite of God and is always wrong. A perfect type of the antichrist is Barack Obama.”

1. Missing Plane Coverage Is A Distraction From Benghazi

Since the sad and cynical politicization of the 2012 Benghazi attack will never end, conservative media personalities are now charging that coverage of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane is a media strategy to distract from Benghazi. Of course, repeated reports — including a GOP-led House study — have discredited the conspiracy theories surrounding the attack and its aftermath, but Fox News is intent on incorporating Benghazi into its Malaysia Airlines reporting.

Bill O’Reilly said the press is only covering the Malaysia Airlines incident because it “doesn’t want to cover important stories like the IRS and Benghazi” while Peter Johnson Jr. wondered why “newscasts don’t focus on things like Benghazi, Fast & Furious, and IRS.” Fellow Fox News hosts Andrea Tantaros and Ralph Peters compared the missing plane to the Benghazi attack.

Beck: 'Noah' Movie is 'Dangerous Disinformation'

Glenn Beck loves watching movies but he will not be seeing Darren Aronofsky's forthcoming "Noah" movie because it is "dangerous disinformation" created in order to undermine the "true" Biblical story of Noah and the Ark. 

Just as Oliver Stone's film "JFK" was made in order to "pump into the system the disinformation of the CIA" and confuse everyone about what really happened, Beck said Aronofsky's movie is designed to do likewise by convincing children that his version is the real story while the Bible version is not to be believed.

"It is dangerous disinformation," Beck said:

Erik Rush Thinks Obama 'Murdered' Everyone On Missing Malaysia Airlines Plane

On Tuesday, we noted that right-wing conspiracy theorist Jim Garrow — a notorious con man who now claims to be a former CIA agent — believes that President Obama blew up the missing Malaysia Airlines plane as part of a “jihad” against China.

He said the military forced the plane to “land by wire” at a base in Diego Garcia and interrogated the “nerds” aboard the jet who are working “for China designing ‘classified’ leading edge computer/internet control software and are carrying the matching hardware with them on the plane.”

Occasional Fox News guest and regular WorldNetDaily commentator Erik Rush, who frequently hosts Garrow on his radio show, laid out a very similar conspiracy theory about the missing plane on his blog and radio program yesterday.

According to Rush’s source (we wonder who that could be!), the US took control of the plane, landed it on Diego Garcia in order to interrogate technicians aboard who wanted to “abscond to China,” and then had everyone on the flight “murdered.”

Rush does add, however, that the pilots may have been protected because they are “pro-Islamist.”

It sounds like an expensive cigar, but Diego Garcia is actually a United States military base that we technically rent from the United Kingdom. At 967 nautical miles south-southwest from the southern tip of India, it is more or less midway between Indonesia and the African continent. The US Navy operates its Naval Support Facility (NSF) there, which is a naval ship and submarine support base, military air base, as well as a communications and space-tracking facility.



Why so few have postulated that this facility may have played a part in the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 may or may not seem odd at first blush given the circumstances: I mean, it’s not a secret base, though clandestine activities conducted there certainly would be. At any rate, I am told Diego Garcia is the location to which Flight 370 was diverted. My source has actually been to Diego Garcia, and assures me that you can land a Lockheed C-5 Galaxy there. Those are the military transport planes they load tanks aboard, and they’re just about the size of a Boeing 777.

At Diego Garcia, some 20 civilian technical personnel were removed from the aircraft for interrogation. On March 8, Reuters reported that 20 employees of U.S. chipmaker Freescale Semiconductor were passengers on Flight 370, according to a statement from the company. It is said that these employees traveled regularly between company facilities in Tianjin, China, and Kuala Lumpur. It may be presumed that these individuals were the same 20 who were reportedly taken to Diego Garcia for interrogation, although my information holds that the detainees (if you will) were working in their capacities as contractors.

Reports earlier this week that the flight plan deviation was programmed into a computer system on board (rather than being executed manually by one of the pilots was quite accurate), I am told. The airliner was taken over remotely by US intelligence operatives at the behest of those at the highest levels of our government.



No, there would have to be a great deal more involved than a software package to commandeer an airliner, kidnap technical contractors, and then “disappear” the plane and over 200 passengers (who, sadly, were most likely murdered for the sake of expediency).



So what went wrong? Well, apparently the DOD got wind that these engineers (who, despite operating under the auspices of Freescale and/or other companies, were not American nationals) were on their way to abscond to China with their prototypes (which were in the cargo hold of the 777) and other valuable materials, thereby cutting the US out of the program entirely.

And why not? It’s fairly well-known in the intelligence community that the Chinese government has absolutely no respect for President Obama, and his telegraphing weak foreign policy all around the world wouldn’t lend itself to a sudden changing of his stripes (ineffectual posturing over Ukraine notwithstanding). Additionally, my understanding is that China technically owned this technology; the US was aiding in its development under a partnership, which apparently the Chinese decided to end in a rather ex parte manner.

The CIA went into action, in concert with the DOD and Boeing engineers. They commandeered Flight 370 en route, digitally, without the foreknowledge of the pilots or crew, diverting it to Diego Garcia. I imagine that’s where the aircraft made that now-infamous and mysterious turn just northeast of Malaysia.

So essentially, the CIA double-crossed the Chinese before they could double-cross us.



Flight 370’s pilots (one of whom being the pro-Islamist Zaharie Ahmad Shah) may have been afforded the opportunity to continue on to another Muslim country, blend in and take on a new identity, given the sentiments of those in the current administration. In any case, it was the geeks and the goods that the CIA was after, and I’m led to believe that’s what they got.

My understanding is that the foregoing information has been confirmed at the highest levels of our government, though not the current one, if that’s cryptic enough for you.

At least, that’s what my source tells me. And they haven’t been wrong yet.
