Atlas Shrugs website under attack ...

Atlas Shrugs subscribers did not receive their free daily newsletter today because the website has been under a massive DDoS attack. Our Islamic Jew hatred ads in San Francisco have gotten huge national and international press. In addition, our free speech rally this weekend countering the "Stand with the Prophet" anti-free speech.
"Islamophobia" summit in Garland, Texas has roiled the enemies of truth and freedom. They are out for blood.
The DDoS meltdown is huge. There is no end in sight. Please be patient. I am working furiously to move and get back online.The costs associated with the move, the server, the IT expertise are staggering. I need your help. If you believe that Atlas Shrugs must survive, contribute here.
The website reaches close to 100,000 readers a day.
We need to get the message out and cover the news the media won't cover. Especially now when the jihad is raging.
I need your help to continue the work.
The above banner is the new look I created for Pamela Geller's, Atlas Shrugs.
Here's how we are impacting/changing the national and international conversation:

IT’S ON: NRA Sues Pennsylvania Cities For Illegal Gun Control Laws

/ Bearing Arms /

Armed with a new law that helps residents and advocacy groups to sue to uphold a 40-year-old preemption law, the National Rifle Association is going after three cities that have been violating the rights of their citizens with illegal gun control laws.
Armed with a new state law that opponents denounce as a gift to the gun lobby, pro-gun groups are rapidly scaling up their attack on municipal firearms ordinances throughout Pennsylvania, with the National Rifle Association filing suit over gun-control measures in three cities.
Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Lancaster have “openly defied” a 40-year-old state law that forbids municipalities from regulating firearms, said Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action.
The cities said they will fight the NRA, contending the local regulations are a sensible way to address deadly gun violence.
“This should be a wake-up call for citizens across Pennsylvania,” Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto said. “We’re not taking away anyone’s right to own a gun — or 10 or 20 guns.
What we’re saying is when a gun is lost or stolen, you’ve got to report it. Too many people are being killed in the streets of Pittsburgh and other cities with stolen guns.”
Pennsylvania has long barred its municipalities from approving ordinances that regulate the ownership, possession, transfer or transportation of guns or ammunition. But scores of cities and towns ignored the prohibition, and gun-rights groups complained the local measures were difficult to challenge because judges have ruled that plaintiffs could not prove harm.
Duke University has abandoned its plan to transform the bell tower on the Methodist school’s neo-gothic cathedral into a minaret where the Muslim call to prayer was to be publicly broadcast.

“Duke remains committed to fostering an inclusive, tolerant and welcoming campus for all of its students,” university spokesman Michael Schoenfeld said in a statement. “However, it was clear that what was conceived as an effort to unify was not having the intended effect.”

The first adhan, or call to prayer, had been scheduled to be broadcast on Jan. 16. University officials said, the Islamic chant, which includes the words “Allahu Akbar” would have been “moderately amplified” -- in both English and Arabic.

However, the decision brought a firestorm of national criticism from a number of high profile leaders including Franklin Graham, the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham.

“This is a Methodist school and the money for that chapel was given by Christian people over the years so that the student body would have a place to worship the God of the Bible,” Graham told me in a telephone interview.

He had called for university donors to pull their funding – (and I suspect that had something to do with Duke’s decision.)

Instead, the prayers will be moved to outside the chapel.

“Members of the Muslim community will now gather on the quadrangle outside the Chapel, a site of frequent interfaith programs and activities,” Schoenfeld said.

The university did not say whether the Muslim call to prayer would be “moderately amplified” at the new location.

Bobby Jindal: Muslims Must Admit 'Islam Has a Problem'

By Cathy Burke / NEWSMAX

Muslim leaders must publicly condemn jihadist terror attacks like the deadly strikes in France and concede "Islam has a problem," Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal says.

"If Islam does not support what is happening in the name of Islam, then they need to stand up and stop it," Jindal declares in a speech he'll give Monday in London, the Daily Caller reports.

"Many Islamic leaders argue that these are the acts of a radical few."

But, Jindal's speech at the Henry Jackson Society will argue, "Let’s be honest here, Islam has a problem."

"I will warn you in advance that I’m going to say some things that are not politically correct, so brace yourselves," he will say, the Daily Caller reports.

"To be clear, I have no interest in defaming any religion, nor do I have any interest in assigning the maniacal acts of radical Islamists to millions of Muslims worldwide. I’m interested only in dealing with reality and facts.

"And the fact is that radical Islamists do not believe in freedom or common decency, nor are they willing to accommodate them in any way and anywhere," Jindal says. "We need to stop pretending otherwise. … We are fools to pretend otherwise."

According to the Daily Caller, Jindal will insist that Muslim leaders emphasize anyone who commits "acts of terror in the name of Islam is in fact not practicing Islam at all."

"If they refuse to say this, then they are condoning these acts of barbarism," Jindal says.

"There is no middle ground."

Jindal's remarks are in stark contrast to the Obama administration, which has carefully avoided using the term "radical Islam," insisting it doesn't want to legitimize terrorists' use of Islam for their attacks.
In his speech, Jindal also will say America needs to get tough and stay that way, the Daily Caller reports.

"I want America’s allies to trust us and respect us, and I want our enemies to fear us," he says. "Every day our enemies spend their time trying to avoid our justice is a day they are not plotting against us. And I fear that in recent years this has not been the case."

He will also take on a leftist notion that it's bigoted to expect immigrants to assimilate when they come to the United States, the Daily Caller reports.

"There was once a time when it was taken for granted in America that people who came to our country were coming to America to be Americans," he says. "But over time, a different philosophy has crept in, and that philosophy now dominates the thinking of the American left, and perhaps even the mainstream of thinking in Europe.

"This philosophy holds the view that it is wrong to expect assimilation, that assimilation is colonialist, assimilation is backward, and assimilation is in fact evidence of cultural bigotry and insensitivity.

"They think it is wrong to expect that people who chose to immigrate to your country should be expected to endorse and abide by your laws.

"They think it is unenlightened, discriminatory, and even racist to expect immigrants to endorse and assimilate into the culture in their new country.

"This is complete rubbish," Jindal said.
And Obama Releases Five More
By: Diane Sori
“The war on terror has reached a lethal phase, and it is insane to be letting these people out of Gitmo to go back to the fight.”
- Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) upon hearing of Obama's newest round of GITMO releases

We all know...or should know by now...that islamic muslim terrorists...YES muslim terrorists...are slowly gaining in their goal of establishing an islamic caliphate under the banner of ISIS with Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as the caliphate's leader.

And we all know...or should know by now...that Barack HUSSEIN Obama is an ISIS sympathizer of the first degree for his actions...or should I say lack thereof...speak volumes as to where his loyalties lie. What more proof do the American people need than to know that with radical islam now fully engaged in both cultural and military jihad against the West, this president...this White House...still refuses to utter the words 'radical islam' choosing instead to call these terrorist acts 'violent extremism.' And he still will NOT say the words even after seeing the video of the two black-clad islamic muslim terrorists running through a Paris street yelling, "We have avenged the prophet Muhammad!" right after their murderous bloodbath.

That along with Wednesday night's Department of Defense announcement that Obama, under the cover of night, released five more captured in Pakistan al-Qaeda fighters now former GITMO detainees despite them being officially listed as medium to high risk. Saying that said 'transfers' were "unanimously approved" by all agencies responsible for reviewing them, the Obama administration continues to claim these persons are a low-level risk at best.

Sending four of the five (Al Khadr Abdallah Muhammad Al Yafi, Fadel Hussein Saleh Hentif, Abd Al-Rahman Abdullah Au Shabati, and Mohammed Ahmed Salam) to Oman (with the other, Akhmed Abdul Qadirbeing being sent to Estonia)...let's NOT forget that Oman shares a common border with both Yemen and Saudi Arabia...and is a direct slap in the face to France because the islamic muslim terrorists who carried out the assassinations at Charlie Hebdo were financed, supported, and given their 'marching orders' by 'al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula' (AQAP) in their being based in Yemen.

In fact, a recently released video by Nasr al-Ansi (see video here, a top al-Qaeda commander in Yemen, claims responsibility for the Charlie Hebdo attack and offers his congratulations to the Nation of Islam for the massacre that "soothed our pain." Soothed their pain over 'mo-toons' (moniker courtesy of Pamela Geller) that irked their sensibilities for the magazine's showing the truth about their pedophile 'so-called' prophet...soothed their pain because they consider France a member of the 'party of Satan'...meaning aligned with the 'Great Satan' America.

And why did Obama do this now so close to the events in Paris and coming but six months or so after his infamous and highly contentious 5-for-1 Taliban trade for Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl? Why...simply put...this was his payback for the new Republican controlled Congress' proposed legislation to block GITMO prisoner transfers for a minimum of two other words until the 2016 elections. And know there are only 122 prisoners left from the 780 originally held at GITMO (the first arrived on January 11, 2002) with the most dangerous released on Obama's watch...of course. And with another 54 Obama administration-cleared prisoners (with 47 of them being Yemeni) just counting off the days until they too are released...let it be known that these people are welcomed home as heroes and soon return to their terrorist ways.

Nice huh...and some still question where Barack HUSSEIN Obama's allegiances truly lie.

And according to a House Armed Services Sub-Committee Report, under the Obama regime his portion of the to date 150+ Gitmo detainees released (30% of all detainees) most have been confirmed or suspected of re-engaging in terrorist or insurgent activities after their release, and know that most of these were deemed to be low-level threats by this administration. And sadly, thanks to all the cuts Obama has made to our intel community there is about a two and a half year delay between said person's release and when U.S. Intelligence learns and verifies that the released individual has indeed returned to terrorism.

And now we have five more to worry about.

Based upon Obama's 2008 campaign promise to close GITMO and fear that if he doesn't it will have a negative affect on his legacy, Ian Moss, a spokesman for the U.S. State Department on Guantanamo said, "We are committed to closing the detention facility. That's our goal and we are working toward that goal," NEVER mind that events over the past year involving both al-Qaeda and ISIS would lead anyone with even one working brain cell to realize that now is NOT the time to continue with these releases. And to do so in light of last week's attack in France and yesterday's thankfully thwarted would have been attack in attack by a fully operational and heavily armed terrorist especially grievous.

NOT the time for someone who should be siding with America and the West to release them, but most definitely the time for someone whose allegiances lie with the enemy to release them...and so Barack HUSSEIN Obama did just that and promises he will soon release even more. And in light of Chuck Hagel's resignation as Secretary of Defense...a man with mixed allegiances of his own but still a man who tried to slow down the releases out of fear that the freed detainees could become a security threat to American troops...Obama...NEVER a supporter of our now running rampant with these releases NOT caring about the impact this will have on our troops...NOT caring that these releases could come back to haunt us here on American soil. And Obama is also relishing in the fact that his new Secretary of Defense nominee, Ashton B. Carter, is as liberal and unsupportive of our military as he is.

Releasing these bast*rds while NOT caring that certain pre-set conditions had to met by the countries willing to take in these 'transfers,' America's traitor-in-chief NO longer is waiting for security improvements to be made in Yemen that would help keep these persons out of that country...which as previously said is where most of the remaining prisoners are from. And he thinks he's fooling us by transferring them to neighboring countries...countries with the same lax security as Yemen...countries who say they will deny them passports and will place them in rehabilitation programs for militants but NEVER seem to do so...making it easy for these individuals to cross said host country's borders to return home to return home to join up once again with their terrorist buddies.

And we still have two more years of Barack HUSSEIN Obama releasing these dangerous people. Remember, this is the very man who released nuclear terrorist and Secretary General of the Taliban’s Intelligence Directorate, Mohammad Zahir, back to Afghanistan even though when he was captured he was in possession of uranium and 'heavy water' both used in making atomic bombs.

And let's NOT forget his infamous afore mentioned 5-for-1 trade where two of those he released, Mullah Mohammad Fazi, the Taliban army chief of staff, and Mullah Norullah Noori, senior Taliban military commander, are both wanted for war crimes by the U.N. for murdering thousands of Shiites.

And know these are just the tip of the iceberg of those who have now returned to their terrorist ways.

So as Barack HUSSEIN Obama continues to embolden our enemy with these 'so-called' trades, U.S. designated terrorist group CAIR praises the American media...including FOX News...for NOT showing the latest Charlie Hebdo magazine cover as they cower in fear of rightfully criticizing the pedophile prophet mohammed...and the islamic muslim terrorists win yet again.

How sad for sad for the world.
