The Howlers of Our Moon Bats

Moon bat has replaced mooncalf as a colloquial term for a fool, halfwit, dunce, moron, etc. One could just as well say it is synonymous with Muslim and Progressive

Howling at the moon is an idiom meaning making an utterly ludicrous, transparently insane remark stated as a truism. It designates a statement that contradicts obvious or demonstrable evidence, and is contrary to what is clearly true, or to what is relevant to the facts. It isn’t certain yet why wolves howl at the moon, but we are certain that Progressivism and Islam cause human moon bats to howl at reality. Here are a few instances:

Reuters editors and the filterers of other news sources must have snickered when on August 17th they reported Chancellor Angela Merkel stating bald-faced that Germany’s violence is not caused by the “immigrants” or the barbaric “refugees.” They somehow didn’t bring rape, murder, and terrorism to Germany (or to Sweden, France, and other European nations). It’s those nasty jihadists who wish to terrorize Germany into submission. But they’ve already done that. They don’t practice the same Islam as the non-entities who can be seen on German streets pushing their welfare state paid prams of future “Germans.”

"The phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, of IS, is not a phenomenon that came to us with the refugees," Merkel said at an election campaign event for her Christian Democrats in the eastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern ahead of a regional vote on Sept. 4.
The influx of migrants, many of whom are Muslim, has boosted support for the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD), which is expected to perform well in elections in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Berlin.
"We have said clearly that an Islam that works and lives on the basis of the constitution ... belongs to Germany," Merkel said.
She added that a type of Islam that did not stick to the constitution or accept equal rights for women had no place in the country.
Clueless or lying on her reelection stump, it does not occur to Merkel that Islam will not “stick to the constitution” of Germany, as Islam regards man-made law as an abomination to AllahWalla. Under Sharia law, there are no “equal rights” for women, nor for non-Muslim infidels, nor for homosexuals, nor for anyone else but Muslim males.

Which see

So, set you (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam]) your face towards the religion (of pure Islâmic Monotheism) Hanîf (worship none but Allâh Alone). Allâh’s Fitrah (i.e. Allâh’s Islâmic Monotheism) with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalq-illâh (i.e. the religion of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. (Tafsir At-Tabarî)}(Ar¬-Rûm:30)
And, apparently, Angela Merkel knows not of what she speaks. But, what she worry?  Islam belongs to and in Germany. "Former president Wulff said Islam belongs to Germany. That is true. I also hold this opinion," Merkel said at a news conference with Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, who also took part with other world leaders in the Paris march on Sunday.” [January 12, 2015] 

Rather, Germany now belongs to Islam, thanks to Wulff and Merkel, who opened the gates and borders to the migrant invasion. This would be a truer statement.

Let’s now turn to another moon bat, Tim Kaine, former governor of Virginia who helped to turn the cradle of the American Republic into a “blue state” vassal of Progressivism. On August 17th, Daniel Greenfield on FrontPage wrote of him, 

Hillary Clinton and her entourage have had everything undeservedly handed to them on a silver platter. And yet they never stop hating America.
Tim Kaine, Hillary's ridiculous buffoon of a VP, who is running as number two to a female presidential candidate, decided to take his ridiculous hatred of America to a new level by claiming that America is worse for women than Afghanistan.
Greenfield asks, “Does Kaine really believe that women have more political opportunities in Afghanistan than they do in America? Is he that stupid or does he hate his country that much?” I would answer both: He is that stupid and he hates America. But he keeps his thickness and malice in the background. 

Next up for a baying is our Community Organizer in Chief, Barack Obama, who, among his many other lies and gaffs, has claimed that “climate change” is more a threat to national security than is ISIS or hundreds of thousands of Syrian “refugees” of the Islamic persuasion who are being invited to emulate Angela Merkel’s invasion-by-invitation of this country. As the Free Beacon reported on December 1st, 2015, 

            A new SuperCut video contrasts doomsday rhetoric from the Obama administration about climate change with news clips of terrorist attacks, plane bombings and beheadings by the Islamic State.
            President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry offer the following words in the video about climate change.
            “Today, there is no greater threat to our planet than climate change.”
            “No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change.”
            “It is indeed one of the biggest threats facing our planet today.”
            “Climate change is the threat multiplier.”
Far be it from Obama to realize that he is his own “threat multiplier.” But I think he knows it. Everything he has done over the last eight years has been to weaken the U.S. and to make it vulnerable to Islamic terror. He has been our first, blatantly, conscious “Evil Executive” in pursuit of unlimited and unopposed executive power. 

Of course, the Father of Hockey Sticks, Al Gore, worried that he will be forgotten, uttered his own inanity. Truth Revolt reported on August 23rd, 

After the floods had hit Baton Rouge, Louisiana, last week, former vice president and self-proclaimed global warming guru Al Gore coined the natural disaster as “one of the manifestations of climate change.”                                                    
As The Washington Times notes, news articles followed with the same line. The New York Times wrote, “Flooding in the South looks a lot like climate change.” The Green Party of Louisiana declared a “climate state of emergency.” And at least one meteorologist said “we’ve reached a new meteorological era” because of global warming, or climate change… or whatever they call it now.
So, that’s settled, right? Not according to most experts. Some see no evidence that links this flood to climate change, unlike global warming alarmists….
But then again, maybe Al Gore is just excited. It is the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web, after all, and since he invented it, he’s probably just celebrating with something else he invented: global warming hype.
Not to be left out of the howling, is Secretary of State John Kerry, who competes with Vice President Joe Biden to utter the best and most memorable inanities. In November 2015 Breitbart put together a file of them:

BOSTON – Secretary of State John Forbes Kerry is a dunce, and has a record of making preposterously stupid and offensive statements dating back to 1971.
In fact, if you go onto Google and type in “John Kerry gaffe,” you will get 350,000 hits.
At the U.S. embassy in Paris Tuesday, he did it again, with perhaps his most obnoxious, tone-deaf public pronouncement yet. Speaking to State Department staffers, he compared the two Muslim terrorist massacres in France this year – shooting up the magazine offices of Charlie Hebdo and then last Friday’s celebration of diversity, which left 129 dead.
“There’s something different about what happened (Friday) from Hedbo,” the 71-year-old Yale graduate said, “and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not legitimacy – but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and okay they’re really angry because of this or that.”
Yes, he backed off, immediately and then again yesterday. But however you parse it, he rationalized slaughtering people for exercising free speech. This is the guy the Democrats promoted for president in 2004 as being “smarter” than his fellow Yale grad, George W. Bush, despite the fact that Kerry’s GPA was slightly lower.

Doubtless President Obama refers to Kerry, the “marry up to riches” parasite and the guy who claims to have “swift-boated” his Army rewards out the window, as one of his two prize dumb-ass honkies, the other being Joe Biden.

And the MSM pack loves to hear them howl, and often joins in the serenade with its own brand of inanity. But then the MSM is populated with its own species of moon bats, and they’re fanged and carry rabies.

The foregoing quotations are all "howlers," but they're not funny.

The Faces of Evil

Imagine for a moment you are in a U.S. post office, and while standing in line to buy stamps, you take a look at the latest “Wanted” poster featuring the mug shots of the “Most Wanted” killers, thieves, bandits, rapists, and corrupt political leaders who have, after the 2016 election, been booted out of power and sent to prison or banished from public life, never to threaten any person’s life and livelihood ever again, either with ill-gotten money or a submission-or-else ideology.   

They were all sent scurrying for cover in their fortress-like enclaves, pursued by the authorities and grand jury indictments. They are the paragons of evil unleashed upon civilized, unarmed citizens in America and in Europe. Now they have been neutralized and brought up on pages of criminal charges. Some have eluded capture; others have been cornered in their caves or “safe” houses, or lured into traps by the Texas Rangers and local authorities working with a reconstituted FBI, much as Bonnie and Clyde were exterminated on a back road of Louisiana. (former FBI Director James Comey, who once detailed Clinton’s treachery and lies but refused to recommend an indictment, was demoted to the Bureau’s mail room as a second-assistant mail sorter and pusher of mail carts). 

George Soros, who once boasted that helping the Nazis rob condemned Jews of their property was the “happiest” time of his life, was a billionaire who funded many of the Progressive/left wing groups that worked to bring down America to the level of a political stew-pot of no specific identity as long as Americans were reduced to poverty and submission to Islam. All societies, to him, were pliant, fungible, and open to retransformation into ones in which he was comfortable. Once compared himself to Machiavelli.

Former President Barack Obama’s chief goal was to destroy America and her people, to turn it into an ossuary and the people into skeletons of their former selves. “My many minions throughout the country are 'shovel-ready'! I asked them here from Mexico and Syria. It ain’t gonna be a knife fight, and I’m gonna laugh my head off watching you honkies run! You shoot back, you get shot!”

As the Patron Saint of Lies, Hillary Clinton here attempts to combine the insouciance of George Soros and the Mussolini-like jutting jaw pose of Obama. The picture was taken shortly after she said during a “Ready for Hillary” rally, “You Americans will tolerate Somali rapists and Syrian beheaders and like it, or I'll reopen Gitmo, just for you! Then you’ll see what a difference it makes!”

Saint Angela Merkel, former Chancellor of Germany, photographed praying that no Muslims come after her. Advisors close to her, however, assured her that she was in no danger of gang rape, being too plump and homely, as well. Many of her hapless citizens were attacked with her leave. Her philosophy to Germans: “Like it and lump it. You’re being culturally enriched. To resist rape, or any kind of assault, or blaspheme Islam by complaining about it, is treason! Just kiss your criminal and make up!” Rather, her closest advisors said that Muslims would come after her with a sharpened ax – but that was before the Germans got to her first in a retribution that was long overdue.

After a bath, a visit to the barber shop for a trim, and the return of his garb from the dry cleaners, Islamic gang-leader Mohammed posed for a quick study and liked the image so much he forgave the defamer, but forgot to autograph it. Fled from the scene as he was dressing in a transgender bathroom in a Target store. He was an undocumented illegal alien and a pedophile and cradle-robber supreme. Outstanding warrants in 50 states, the UK, Australia, Sweden, and Germany. Whereabouts unknown. Muslims claim to have never seen him, not knowing what he really looked like.

“…A long train of abuses and usurpations….”

Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, in detailing the numerous charges against King George III, that “…mankind are disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
Jefferson, the Judge

Does this not describe the administration of Barack Obama? His eight-year tenure in the White House has been nothing less than a “train of abuses and usurpations,” abuses of the office of president and usurpations of Congressional authority. His “Object” has always been to reduce Americans under absolute Despotism. 

In 1920, H.L. Mencken made some observations that have proven to be prescient and not altogether irrelevant to the character of today’s Social Justice Warriors, aspiring collectivists, and nation transformers:

“No doubt my distaste for democracy as a political theory is…a defect that is a good deal less in the theory than in myself.  In this case it is very probably my incapacity for envy….The fact that John D. Rockefeller had more money than I have is as uninteresting to me as the fact that he believed in total immersion and wore detachable cuffs.

“Thus I am never envious, and so it is impossible for me to feel any sympathy for men who are. Per corollary, it is impossible for me to get any glow out of such hallucinations as democracy and Puritanism, for if you pump envy out of them you empty them of their life blood: they are all immovably grounded upon the inferior man’s hatred of the man who is having a better time. There is only one honest impulse at the bottom of Puritanism, and the impulse is to punish the man  with a superior capacity for happiness – to bring him down  to the miserable level of the ‘good’ men, i.e., of stupid, cowardly and chronically unhappy men. And there is only one sound argument for democracy, that it is a crime for any man to hold himself out as better than other men…and the most heinous offense for him is to prove it.

“…Such an attitude is palpably impossible to a democrat. His distinguishing mark is the fact that he always attacks his opponents, not just with open arms, but also with snorts and objurations – that he is always filled with moral indignation – that he is incapable of imagining honor in an antagonist, and hence incapable of it himself….”*

 One hundred and forty years separate Jefferson’s words and Mencken’s (his article “A Blind Spot”). The Founders abhorred democracy, which they regarded as mob rule as an overture to tyranny by the mob leader (Shall we call him a mobster? Or her?). Mencken more than Jefferson tagged democrats and Puritans as moved by envy and malice. Everywhere we look today in the news, we see envy and malice at work. The MSM is rotten with snorts against Donald Trump, “Islamophobes,” and anyone who “didn’t build that” or is dripping with “White privilege”; fork-tongued “moderate” Muslims inveigh with CAIR against American dress codes and work standards and drag hapless employers to court, where they have a fifty-fifty chance of having their codes and standards excoriated, in the name of “civil rights,” by an ignorant, pliant justice who knows little about Islam or about leading a productive life in truly gainful employment. Islam, after all, is not only an ideology that nurtures crime (it’s in Mohammad’s theological and political DNA, there’s no altering that fact), but promotes among its flocks cowardice and acquiescence among most adult Muslims, and in young Muslims the mobster mentality. 

Envy and malice are the leitmotif of Obama’s whole time in the White House. Let us draw up and itemize his “rap sheet.”

Ø  We learn that as part of Obama’s grand design to “transform” America that aside from sanctioning the importation (not “immigration”) of thousands of ideologically hostile Syrian “refugees” into the country (most of whom will be just Muslim ballast while raising future anti-American jihadists), that he has released some 86,000 criminal aliens to rob, rape, and pray on the general population.
Ø  He has Okayed the invasion of thousands of Muslims into a wide range of American towns and cities.

More than 600,000 immigrants with official refugee status have been resettled in the U.S. since 2008.  (That’s just the designated “refugees,” and does not include other legal immigrants and illegal migrants.  The U.S. has admitted a total of over 6.3 million immigrants for legal permanent residence since 2008, of which the refugees represent roughly 10%.)
There are some out-of-the-way communities that have a relatively long history of accepting refugees for resettlement, at a rate significantly disproportionate to their populations.  Twin Falls, Idaho is one; another is Manchester, New Hampshire.

Donald Trump claimed, not without some truth in the accusation, that Obama and Hillary Clinton were the “cofounders” of ISIS. Reuters and many liberal newspapers immediately jumped on the statement saying it was an irresponsible utterance. But was it? Daniel Greenfield’s August 11th FrontPage article parses the facts:

Donald Trump has said of Obama, "he’s the founder of ISIS". He stated that Hillary is a co-founder of ISIS. The remarks have touched off anger from certain media outlets, but is it true or not?

The organization we currently know as ISIS had earlier incarnations, but it adopted its current name in response to its growing successes in the Arab Spring which was heavily backed and championed by Obama and Hillary. The expansion of ISIS in the Arab Spring functionally turned it into a very different organization. It not only temporarily succeeded in creating its Caliphate, but it went from a marginal terror group to a microstate controlling cities, large populations and winning the allegiance of Islamic terror groups around the world. And it was able to carry out terror attacks in America….
There is also no denying the fact that Obama and Hillary's backing for the Arab Spring, along with that of the media, proved crucial in overturning friendly regimes and bringing Islamists to power across the region leading to chaos and terror. 
We might quibble over what the term "founder" exactly means, but there is no denying that ISIS, as we know it today, rose as a direct consequence of Obama and Hillary's support for Islamists.
ISIS is the consequence of their pro-Islamic policies brought to life. And that too cannot be denied. From Benghazi to Baghdad, the wages of the left's support for Islamic theocracy has been terror and death.

In short, writes Greenfield, ISIS is a direct result of Obama/Clinton policies, with a lot of help from the pro-Islam MSM.

In another arena, it has been revealed that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in its hurry to micromanage and regulate every possible human activity, took a leaf from Nazi Germany and experimented on human beings to determine whether or not particulate matter (P.M.) was harmful to health. It was not. John Dunn and Steve Milloy wrote in,” “EPA Whitewashes Illegal Human Experiments,”

Though the EPA got away with issuing the rules, it knew they were vulnerable to challenge because the underlying studies – all dubious statistical correlation studies – didn't actually show that P.M. killed anyone.  Neither did animal toxicology studies, no matter how much P.M. the laboratory animals inhaled.  So the EPA decided to back up its statistical claims by testing extremely high doses of P.M. on real, live people.

Over the next 15 years, the EPA began quietly experimenting on elderly subjects (up to age 80), asthmatics, people with heart disease or metabolic syndrome, and combinations of the aforesaid by placing them in a sealed chamber and making them inhale high levels of P.M. as well as diesel exhaust, smog, and even chlorine gas. [There’s no guarantee better of ensuring the “right” conclusion than marking the cards or rigging jury selection.]

Doubtless if the EPA had used Zyklon B instead of using doses of diesel fumes and chlorine, they’d have gotten more favorable results. The Nazis did, millions of times.  

Finally, on a less dramatic but no less important note, the federal government refuses to mark Muslim Halal food as such, so that non-Muslims can’t tell if they’re complying with Sharia or not. Remember that in American supermarkets there are “Asian” aisles, and “Hispanic” aisles, but no “Muslim aisles.”  Pamela Geller raises the issue of how Americans are being hoodwinked and made to submit to Islam, “The Meat You Eat is HALAL but USDA Won’t Label It.”

 A great deal of meat sold in this country is halal but is not labeled is such. It’s a scandal — but an established practice: meat packers generally do not separate halal meat from non-halal meat, and do not label halal meat as such. We attempted to right that wrong. But the U.S. Department of Agriculture has for four years now ignored, shelved, or just plain refused to rule on our petition….

Just as those who buy meat and poultry products labeled halal or kosher should have a reasonable expectation that the meat they’re buying was actually produced in that manner, so also those of us who don’t want to eat halal meat for whatever reason should also have a reasonable assurance that meat not labeled halal was not actually slaughtered in accordance with Sharia rules. As halal slaughter increases in the US, the likelihood of unknowingly buying meat sacrificed under the present system also increases.

This is a matter of simple justice and common sense. So why is the USDA stonewalling on our petition?

Basically because labeling meat Halal would somehow discriminate against Muslims and against the brutal, inhumane way livestock and poultry are slaughtered, by letting them bleed to death instead of killing them the swiftest and most economical way. But pain and suffering are the Islamic way.
Slit their throats while they are still conscious.

There is, of course, Obama’s ram-rodding ObamaCare through the legislative grinder, packing the Supreme Court with Progressive ideologues, his ongoing destruction of the U.S. military, his kneejerk denigration and humiliation of the American people, sympathizing with the thugs of Black Lives Matter, and exacerbating race relations in the country, and just generally following the Alinsky playbook together with that of the Muslim Brotherhood. He adheres to his mentor’s  Rules for Radicals as well as Islam’s “Rules for Conquering America” per the 1991 Memorandum
Neither Jefferson nor Mencken could have imagined the scale of evil that Obama represents, far, far greater than that threatened by George III. Hopefully, the train of abuses and usurpations will come to an end in November.
