Answer: NO

By Dr. Thomas Sowell

However great the shock of the massacre in Orlando, it is only a matter of time before we start hearing again the fact-free dogma that "diversity is our strength."

If there is any place in the Guinness Book of World Records for words repeated the most often, over the most years, without one speck of evidence, "diversity" should be a prime candidate.

Today, that sense of American unity is being undermined by the reckless polarization of group identity politics. That affects not only how Americans see themselves, but how others in our midst see America.
Is diversity our strength? Or anybody's strength, anywhere in the world? Does Japan's homogeneous population cause the Japanese to suffer? Have the Balkans been blessed by their heterogeneity — or does the very word "Balkanization" remind us of centuries of strife, bloodshed and unspeakable atrocities, extending into our own times?

Has Europe become a safer place after importing vast numbers of people from the Middle East, with cultures hostile to the fundamental values of Western civilization?

"When in Rome do as the Romans do" was once a common saying. Today, after generations in the West have been indoctrinated with the rhetoric of multiculturalism, the borders of Western nations on both sides of the Atlantic have been thrown open to people who think it is their prerogative to come as refugees and tell the Romans what to do — and to assault those who don't knuckle under to foreign religious standards.


The recent wave of refugees flooding into Europe include Muslim men who have been haranguing European women on the streets for not dressing modestly enough, not to mention their sexual molestation of those women.

Smug elites in Europe, like their counterparts in America, are not nearly as concerned about such things as they are about preventing "Islamophobia." Legal restrictions on free speech in some European countries make it a crime to sound the alarm about the dangers to the culture and to the people.

In the lofty circles of those who see themselves as citizens of the world, it is considered unworthy, if not hateful, to insist on living according to your own Western values or to resist importing people who increase your chances of being killed.

A walk in Hell

stuff I think about                                                          


This is the testimony of college professor and atheist Howard Storm who while on vacation in Paris France had a perforation in his stomach and died. He had a NDE and when he died he was surrounded by demons jinns who tortured him, but suddenly remembered a prayer was saved and was revived. After seeing hell and jinn he changed.

On June 1, 1985, at the age of 38, Howard Storm, a Professor of Art at Northern Kentucky University, had a near-death experience due to a perforation of the stomach and his life was forever changed he lives to tell his story.

Here's Part Two

This particularly resonates with me because my wife, over years of working as an RN in Hospice, Critical Care, and surgical wards, witnessed quite a few incidents along these lines.  Some are still so terrifying that she has difficuly relating them; i.e. One of her patients, a nice man, near death, suddenly jumped out of his bed.  The look on his face was hideous, and he "hissed," then made nightmarish guttural noises before throwing his arms in the air, swatting away, yelling "OKAY I'M COMING!" And dropped dead.  

I sparred with Muhammad Ali


Hillary Clinton: I sparred with Muhammad Ali
Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has paid tribute to boxing legend Muhammad Ali, recalling how she sparred with the three-time world champion in the early 1970s.

“I remember back in 1970 when the Nixon administration had banned him from boxing. I would often spar with him to keep him fresh, you know, keep him on his toes,” Clinton recalled.

And that wasn’t the only Clinton family connection to the man known as “The Greatest” to fans around the world.

“My daughter Chelsea was an au pair to his children at the same time. They used to call her mammy,” said Clinton.

“I remember the day Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot. I was eating fried chicken and watermelon with Muhammad’s mother. She wept uncontrollably into my shoulder. I still have that tear-stained dress.”

“And I just remembered that my middle name is Muhammad and that name was actually given to me by my parents in homage to Mr. Ali,” Clinton went on.

“After all, what nobler calling could an African-American have than to beat the crap out of another African-American for the amusement of white people, giving themselves permanent brain damage,” said Clinton.
“Another thing I just remembered,” said Clinton, “is that on 9/11 when I went into the South Tower to rescue Chelsea, Muhammad was there with me, and he took my hand and led me up those 398 floors.”

The Pennsylvania Democrat plans to meet with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community leaders in Pittsburgh on Monday to discuss "steps the United States government must take immediately to address safety concerns across the country from commonsense gun laws to ongoing acts of hate," according to a statement from Casey's office.
Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle offered their condolences and expressed outrage at the attacks.

  • Republicans tended to cite the need to boost counterterrorism efforts
  • Democrats called on Congress to act to prevent gun violence.
Casey, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement that the attack highlighted the need to protect Americans from terrorists and address gun violence. The Orlando attack is the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

"While we are still learning about the shooter's motivation, this is an act of terror and yet another mass shooting in our nation," Casey said. "It is also an attack on the LGBT community."

This reeks of rank  oportunism, not to mention stupidity

"Senator, we need to get out there on this PDQ. Here's a draft memo we can get to Roll Call, like right now!"

"Great Bob, but get something in there that addresses the impact on the LGBT, LGBTQ, LGBTQA, TBLG and Gender Queer Tranny communities."

WTF?  Islam demands that homosexuals be thrown off a minaret as religious principle.  Duh.
