WOO HOO! African state of Angola bans Islam and will destroy all the mosques

UnknownBy popular demand, Angolan authorities have taken pre-emptive action and decided to ban the Muslim religion, which they consider a cult, NOT a religion. They see what Muslims are doing to Christians, especially in Africa, and are taking steps to prevent the same from happening in Angola.

And on Tuesday, November 19, the Minister of Culture, Rosa Cruz e Silva said. “Regarding Islam, the legalization process has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights. Therefore all mosques would be closed until further notice. “ It should be noted that the Angolan government has made closing of all mosques a priority. The only two mosques located in Luanda have already received a warning document  signed by the mayor of the municipality of Viana José Moreno.

95% of Angola’s population is Christian. A quarter belongs to Protestant churches founded during the colonial period, including congregational evangelical church.

former-boko-haram-Nasir-IsiakuThis decisive action taken by the Angolan head of state is based on a desire to guard against the rise of the Wahhabi ideology that has created havoc, death and destruction in Africa and elsewhere. And as rightly explained Tunisian philosopher Mezri Haddad: “Islamism and Islamophobia feed each other. Worse, long-term Islamism as an ideology destroy Islam as religion. “


Africalap  According to the International Religious Freedom Report 2008, Islam in Angola is a minority religion with 80,000 – 90,000 adherents, composed largely of migrants from West Africa and families of Lebanese origin. The Muslims comprise between 2.5 to 3 percent of Angola’s overall population of 17 million people, most of them Christians.

in the last decade, but especially during the last few years the Muslim community in Angola has grown appreciably and Islamic activities have become more common in major cities. Mosques have sprung up in a number of places and Qur’anic schools have been built to provide Islamic instructions and teach Arabic language to adherents.


Public attitudes toward Islam have been generally negative. Cultural differences between Angolan and Muslim West African immigrants have been the basis for negative views toward Islam, as was the perceived link between Islam and illegal immigration. Since the September 11 attacks, there has been a deliberate attempt to link Muslims with terrorism. It has become a matter of routine at Luanda airport for security officers to detain Muslims arriving from Sahelian countries.

Forty Christians were assaulted or tortured. The mob burned three church buildings. They also went to Christians’ houses to intimidate them or destroyed items of property. Stones were thrown at the headquarters of a local Christian project, causing some damage. An Angolan Christian leader said that the local police were unable to stop the attack and fled the scene.

Nuclear Ambitions Are Clear Sign Dear Leader Obama Losing Grip
John Ransom / Townhall Columnist

Despite concrete evidence that global warming has paused, despite evidence that the world is most definitely not running out of oil, despite evidence that the climate models are wrong, global warming still looms as a major disaster to people living in the United States, especially the poor and the middle class.

That’s because the false hysteria surrounding global warming is partially responsible for electing the worst president that we’ve ever had.
And the cleanup from this disaster is going to take a long while.
Let’s put it this way: The earth will begin to warm again before the fallout and toxic effects of Hurricane O are cleaned up.

In the latest manifestation of the man-caused disaster that is Obama, Senator Millionaire, Harry Reid, (D-Dead) got rid of the long agreed-upon rules that prevent presidential nominations from coming to a vote without a consensus amongst Senators.

This rule has been so sacrosanct that changing it has been referred to by BOTH parties as “the nuclear option.”

While Democrats usually pursue a strategy of using dead voters to stuff ballot boxes and suppress the vote, Obama instead turned to a dead Senator, Harry Reid, to stuff the Senate votes.

And because the nuclear option was deployed, you can kiss an early debt deal goodbye, along with a deal on tax reform or a deal to keep government running past January 2013.

Only rulers of tin-horn dictatorships seek to go nuclear, like this, as an alternative to real, responsive government.

“I just think after today, legislating’s going to be pretty tough,” said Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, who infuriates the GOP’s base for often cooperating with Democrats on bipartisan legislation.

“If you thought the Senate has already ground to a near standstill, this is like throwing sand into the gears of an already rusty machine,” said Republican strategist Ron Bonjean, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. “It’s really going to heighten the tensions even further, create bitter partisan arguments and add to the acrimony that’s currently in the Senate.”

Strike that. I’m sure he meant to say: “create MORE, bitter, partisan arguments.”

What’s at stake is the thin veneer of civility-- perhaps the last civility left in our Republic-- that allows consensus to built even in tough times. It means that while a majority in the Senate rules, it also reigns.

Consensus is dead! Long live the tyrannies of the Majority... with nukes!

Make no mistake: This is just an attempt by Obama to poke the hornets’ nest because the sting of Obamacare is killing him.

Nothing constructive will come out of it.

It’s civil war, senatorial style… with nukes.

While the rest of us worried about Iran going nuclear, Obama went nuclear instead.

His nuclear ambitions are the surest sign that the Dear Leader is losing his grip on his people.
Obama likely meant for Senatorial Civil War. He’s hoping for a shutdown or a showdown that will help him wiggle, waggle and worm his way out of the Obamacare debacle.

And here’s the big giveaway: Obama invoked our Founders in defense of Reid’s maneuver in getting rid of the “obstructionists” in the GOP who sought to build a consensus as an alternative to one party rule.

“But today's pattern of obstruction,” said Obama about the rules that require 60 votes to move a presidential appointment forward, “it just isn't normal. It's not what our founders envisioned.”

Yeah, like, when has he ever cared for what our Founders envisioned?

The last dead white guy he ever had a kind word for was Nancy Pelosi. Or maybe Joe Biden.

Sigh… it’s always the WRONG dead white guys with that dude.

"If the Democrats proceed to use the nuclear option in this way, it will be Obamacare II: It will be another raw exercise of partisan political power to say we can do whatever we want to do," said Republican Senator Lamar Alexander as reported by WBIR in Knoxville, Tennessee. "The only cure for that is a referendum next November."

And then let the cleanup of the man-caused fallout and real toxic waste begin.
On judges, ObamaCare, and the nuclear option...issues joined at the hip 
By: Diane Sori  

In a lawless power grab that broke all the rules in order to change the rules to favor Barack HUSSEIN Obama's leftist agenda...and knowing that Republicans will most likely retake the Senate and keep the House in 2014...the Senate under Harry Reid's hand invoked the 'nuclear option'...thus heralding in the start of at least one very dangerous year of  'unilateral rule of government' where the will of the Democratic majority will trample on the rights of the Republican minority.

And the utter hypocrisy in this is that in 2005, when he was Senator Barack HUSSEIN Obama, this most miserable excuse of all presidents was against anyone wanting to initiate the 'nuclear option' saying it was nothing but a partisan move to push a partisan agenda.  But now with his approval ratings sinking to an all-time low (37% at last check) and as ObamaCare falls apart before his LYING eyes... all that has changed and in a last ditch attempt to save ObamaCare and his legacy...and to stack the bench with left-leaning judges...Barack HUSSEIN Obama signaled his cohort Harry Reid to ram through the 'nuclear option' so that starting with this Congress, only a simple 51 vote majority is needed to push through ALL of his executive branch and leftist judicial nominees (except for Supreme Court nominees) by removing them from the possibility of facing a Republican filibuster.

And this is critical as any and all challenges to ObamaCare will probably be handled by the Federal Court of Appeals which Obama can now stack with loyal to him appointees.

In a mostly partisan 52 to 48 vote...three Democrats...three Democrat of conscious including Senators Carl Levin of Michigan, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Mark Pryor of Arkansas....sided with the Republicans against the 'nuclear option' and to those men I say thank-you for seeing this move as NOTHING but a less than honorable way to stack the courts with 'serving Obama alone' judges, and opening the door to God only knows what else as ending the filibuster...a maneuver used in the Senate for well over 200 years as a way of keeping the executive branch in line...for ending of the filibuster for nominations could very well end the filibuster for legislation as well.
And that is truly something every American needs to fear.  

“Over the past five years, we had an unprecedented pattern of obstruction in Congress that has prevented too much of the American people’s business from getting done…Today’s pattern of obstruction isn’t normal. It’s not what our founders envisioned,” Obama croaked at his photo-op press conference showing his support for the 'nuclear option.'

But it was 'Prince' Harry Reid, after claiming that it was the Republican's blocking of Robert Wilkins...the Obama wanted appointment to be a judge on the powerful D.C. Court of Appeals...that led to this remark made before the vote was taken, "Republicans have routinely used the filibuster to prevent President Obama from appointing his executive team or confirming judges," Reid said on the Senate floor. "We're burning wasted hours and wasted days between filibusters. I could say instead we're burning wasted days and wasted weeks between filibusters. It's time to change. It's time to change the Senate before this institution becomes obsolete."

And in response to Reid's nonsense, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell called the move “utterly absurd” and accused Democrats of setting up “one set of rules for themselves and another for everybody else.” He told Democrats “you may regret this a lot sooner than you think.”

By the way...who is Harry Reid to dare speak of wasted hours...wasted about the fact that the Senate is only in session between 120-190 days per year with the average being 140 days out of 365 that is wasted hours and wasted days when Reid and his cohorts should be working doing the job 'We the People' elected them to do instead of following in Obama's footsteps of countless vacations at our taxpayer expense...but I digress (but rightfully so...)

But Reid's entire premise for wanting the 'nuclear option' is based on LIES because Republicans only blocked 30 (with some just temporarily blocked) of Obama's nominees. So oh how always...Prince Harry is for to date the total number of Obama judicial nominees to be confirmed by the Senate is a whopping 211, including two Supreme Court Justices, 39 judges to the US Courts of Appeals, 168 judges to the US District Courts, and two judges to the US Court of International Trade...with the vast majority confirmed with bi-partisan support.
Now please pray tell me how those numbers are indicative of Republicans blocking all the confirmations of Obama nominated simply is NOT true...thus lending more credence to the fact that this move by Reid and the Senate was strictly political...done to deflect attention away from the ObamaCare fiasco and for that reason alone...for even the 'in-the-pocket-for Obama' media has started to shy away from him.

And so to dig the knife of NOTHING but revenge deeper into the Republicans backs for NOT embracing in how dare those 'bad' Republicans try to blame the media anointed 'savior' of us all for its fundamental flaws...yesterday Obama suddenly and oh so conveniently announced numerous appointees to the federal judiciary. But the sad reality of this is that Barack HUSSEIN Obama is willing to throw the judiciary into chaos just so he can try to salvage his unworkable namesake health care plan. And there goes the fledgling but growing bi-partisan show of support for actually repealing ObamaCare for now Democratic Senators dare NOT cross party lines as all but three voted 'yea' for the 'nuclear option'...a most vile maneuver of political trickery.  

So now Obama can and will stack the federal courts with even more left-leaning liberal judges and will NOT acquiesce to the voices of the majority of Americans who want NO part of ObamaCare.  And with this new power we best keep our eyes peeled and watch out Second Amendment and pro-lifers. 

And so Obama's bag of tricks has been opened via Harry Reid.  Thinking he's pulled the coup of all coups with the 'nuclear option' he now has announced a delay in the sign-up period for next year's deadline on ObamaCare until AFTER the 2014 elections, because he now is assured of Senatorial support for this.  And NO matter that all this 'nuclear option' shenanigans is just a political ploy to hide next year's sticker shock when people visit the exchanges, Obama hopes that voters will NOT hold their Representatives and Senators responsible come election day for the health care disaster... but oh how wrong he is as the American people are smart enough to see this as a political ploy and NOTHING more...especially after his LIES upon LIES upon LIES.

Truth be told Barack HUSSEIN Obama could care less about this year's 5.1 million cancelled policies that have thrown the lives of millions of hardworking, taxpaying Americans into chaos as his liberal progressive agenda trumps all, and under his administration the American people be damned.

And so the importance of taking back the Senate and keeping the House in 2014 is a must for the only way to stop Harry Reid's blatant grab for power and Barack HUSSEIN Obama's total misuse of power is to vote the whole damn bunch of Democrats OUT in both the House and Senate...and only then can we focus on impeaching this most incompetent, narcissistic, traitors ever to hold the office of President of these United States.
