In America, the countdown has begun. And the country, in sharp free fall, finds herself with no savior in sight. True, presidential contender after presidential contender are fighting to grab the leadership, yet none of them seems convincing enough, even to the shrewd home-made political experts that nowadays abound. With the excuse that America is a baby country in the context of the creation of the world, America's guarantors refuse to grow up and acknowledge that the world has received history lessons throughout millennia which include revolutions galore to straighten things whenever the going gets tough.
By all accounts, Muslim immigration in America has dramatically increased throughout the last decades, suffice to look around and see the many Muslim women head-to-toe dressed in black burqas, while their men are dressed in a more dissimulated manner. What’s less so, are the multiple mosques or masjid that are now to be found in every state, but that's a problem that has developed throughout the various administrations.
Good Americans are for freedom of speech and freedom of religion, as per our sacrosanct Constitution that nowadays serves as jump rope for the president and his acolytes.
However, there is no where written in the Constitution that freedom of religion is supposed to be given to a community whose terrorists caused the massacre of our civilian population in times of peace, in the name of their god, Allah, and especially when their countries of origin have not even had the decency to disavow terrorism and had not sent their troops to hunt and kill their own terrorists.
Therefore, this is not Islamophobia, but our legitimate right to be concerned, especially when we know the chaos that reigns in the Muslim world at any and all times.
A recent Pew Research study claims that over the next two decades, the Muslim population in our country will more than double, from a Muslim population representing currently 0.8 percent to 1.7 percent predicted by 2030. The same report shows a Muslim population increasing worldwide by almost a billion people in the next 20 years which means that if it actually happens, Muslims will soon enough represent more than a quarter of the world population.
With the tacit and official approval of our authorities, whether it is Hussein Obama or Mr. Bloomberg and others, Muslims have never actually been made accountable for the acts of terror that have come our way, instead they were given a pass as our own Administration has conspicuously removed the term Muslim terrorism from official documwnts in relation with the massacres of 9/11 and, among others, has also facilitated their immigration, and continues to do so, as we will see below.
To crown the whole, the Pew Research Center finds “no indication of increased alienation or anger among Muslim Americans in response to concerns about home-grown Islamic terrorists controversies about the building of mosques and other pressure on this high-profile minority group in recent years, nor does the new polling provide any evidence of rising support for Islamic extremism among Muslim Americans. On the contrary...” Right. It's as if though it has been our people who have done something to them and not the other way around. Please, note the mention of “home-grown Islamic terrorists...”
Politically speaking, seems that Muslim Americans, who lean strongly Democratic, are much more satisfied than they were four years ago and, unsurprisingly, 76% approve of Barack Obama’s job performance; while, at the same time, in 2007, about as many (69%) had disapproved of the way George Bush handled his job as president.
Most may not be aware that in the aftermath of 9/11 the number of Saudi students who immigrated to the United States jumped more than fourfold and that trend has continued.
By the end of the 2011 fiscal year, the American missions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, announced that they have issued 121,296 visas for Saudis, up 32 percent over the previous year. Interestingly, "some 48,000 Saudi students are on scholarship, currently studying in various universities and colleges in the United States,” according to Mofid Deak, press attachÃ© at the mission in Riyadh.
While their numbers in our country are not precise, 3-5 million Muslim population seems to be quite a conservative estimate.
Last December, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced their 2012 “Muslims Vote” campaign, making available their Presidential Voter Guide, their “guide” to the intricate American electoral system. CAIR has an active social networking system and one should not expect them to be shy in their “guide” to elections, especially if in some circles Arabic is their mother tongue.
It is worrisome to find an increasingly larger Muslim population in key swing states such as Florida, Ohio and Michigan, which the majority of American conservatives seem to dismiss, though it is a mistake to do so, because after all, this is also the reason why CAIR wants to encourage Muslim participation in elections.
Obviously, a massive Muslim democratic vote could be critical in the scheme of things and as such, it could also be one of the reasons that this Administration has been removing obstacles to Muslim and, particularly, Saudi immigration to our country.
It’s as if though the fact that Muslim terrorists have committed 18,393 deadly terror attacks world wide since 9/11, is unimportant. Wherever Muslims are established, there is terror and chaos, just look at the news. Indeed, terrorism and trouble follow Muslims wherever they go. Why would anyone even think that it could be different in America, once they will be well established here?
Obama may not have only facilitated Muslim immigration, among others, to help his re-election, but also other kind of manipulations to help his re-election are being committed on a daily basis, so it is not surprising that he has announced, on behalf of his reelection campaign, their strategy to court African-American voters, a voting bloc that he heavily secured during his 2008 run. Obama received 95% of the black vote. Thus, he has created the African-Americans for Obama, which in all likelihood, will end up inciting more divide in our country.
The list of impeachable offenses and of violations against the Constitution are countless and constitutional experts know that, in other circumstances, those excesses could have lead to the replacement of any other president and his administration.
In that line, we would be remiss if we would oversee that all the above and more could only have been made possible thanks to the spineless, lethally lethargic American conservative movement.
GOP and Tea Party are hosting a Conservative Political Action Conference and, sadly, there is little they can achieve. As a key indicator, we have the first item on their agenda: How to Raise Money…the Easy Way – Sponsored by the Leadership Institute, and it’s "Open to all CPAC attendees." Another session is: "Do We Still Hold These Truths?”: The Future of the Conservative Movement.
For all it’s known, the future of the American Conservative Movement is bleak, it has been non-existent and almost under anesthesia during Obama’s deplorable first tenure. And, it has been in deep contrast with the very busy, very intent, and very organized, Left and their Occupy Movements, as well as the Unions. It’s like comparing day and night.
One thing is that corrupt politicians consider themselves above the law and more particularly, this president who, in his pre-tyranny moments, places himself with ease above the American constitution.
But, it is something else when John Doe, Joe the Plumber and all the American Annie Oakleys actively work in front of their computers and let the world feel their outrage tweeting or facebooking, when they see and feel the country collapsing -but fail to get ready for the worse, hoping for the best.
In our country, there was something about which we were always proud of, and that was American exceptionalism, which used to be the rule and now is, sadly, the exception.
Exceptionalism was to give the best of our best. Where has it gone?
Americans are feeling the change, and they know it is a change taking us far from our values and traditions, to a place with no God, with no love of country, with no essence of the family nucleus.
In case of Obama’s defeat, it is most likely that the liberal left will not accept with grace losing the elections, so it is important to remember how the NCAAP picketed some voting venues, plus those leftist radicals who love violence.
Whatever happens to America, it will be on the conscience of each and all Americans who have not stood up to defend her.
America depends on the American people and while our Constitution is violated and our country disintegrates, it’s the time to remember this one precious treasure in our lives:
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
