Elite’s Globalist Manifesto of Rules

Here is the unofficial, malign preamble to the globalist takeover of the world. It could just as well suffice as a warning of Islamic conquest, as well. Parodying the Outer Limits intro from 1995, the preamble would go:

There is nothing wrong with your television.
Do not attempt to adjust the picture.
We are controlling the transmission.
We control the horizontal and the vertical.
We can confuse you with a thousand channels.
Or expand one single image to crystal clarity….and beyond.
Or we can blur a single image.
We can shape your vision to anything our imagination can conceive.
We control all that you see, and hear.
We will control everything, and especially your mind.
We will obliterate individual and independent thought.
We will determine the content of your mind.
We will determine what is permissible to speak, write, and express.
We will define what is and is not truth.

All that with the assistance of Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Tom Blumer wrote in his November 19th article, “Twitter to Begin Using ‘Blue Check’ Status As a ‘Big Brother’ Weapon?”:

The growth in online censorship by tech titans Facebook, Twitter, and Google's search and YouTube platform is one of the most under-reported stories of the past two years.

In the latest disturbing development, Twitter, which has been increasingly heavy-handed in censoring center-right content, content providers, and everyday users since last year's general election campaign, has announced that it will unilaterally remove "blue-check" (i.e., "verified") status from groups and users who in its view have violated its Terms of Service — even for offline behavior it considers unacceptable….

So-called "hate speech," assuming anyone can even define it, is protected by the First Amendment. If Twitter is choosing to use the Southern Poverty Law Center's twisted definition of "hate speech" or "hate groups" or is taking a similar posture, a wide swath of legitimate center-right groups' blue checks may disappear. One can be certain that users losing a blue check will be on an internal Twitter "watch list" for supposedly inappropriate online or offline activity that would cause the company to ban them.

Democracy Alliance and Islam want to ban “hate speech.” They want to ban snipe hunts.

On November 17th, Brent Scher and Joe Schoffstall reported in their article, “Secretive Liberal Donor Summit Increases Security, Changes Itinerary Following Free Beacon Report,” in the Washington Free Beacon, that:

Members of the Democracy Alliance, a secretive dark money liberal donor network, appear to have moved to increase security presence and alter its schedule at its fall donor summit following a Washington Free Beacon report released Friday morning based off the group's internal documents.

The high-dollar progressive donors, who each vow to direct at least $200,000 in funding to approved left-wing groups of the alliance, are currently gathered at the posh La Costa Resort located in Carlsbad, Calif., for its three-day fall investment conference to plot their 2018 "resistance" and game plan…

The Free Beacon, who appears to be the only member of the media on site covering the conference, has obtained internal documents meant only for attendees that detail the conference's agenda and those who are currently at the gathering. Janell Ross, a Washington Post reporter, is allegedly at the summit, but is listed as being on a "getting the economic narrative right" panel at the conference.

Islam is insinuating itself into the globalist strategy, or already has, to judge by the numerous Congressmen, billionaires, and Muslim “rights” advocates who have been befriended by CAIR, the ISNA, the MPAC, and other Islamic or Muslim Brotherhood (MB) affiliated groups, and who do not fear Islam but are reluctant to blame Islam for any massacre Islam or ISIS claims credit for (except for Muslims or converts to Islam who are “mentally” troubled). Islam will be the sole globalist power. Not the secular deep state personnel or any secularist, national government. America is the MB’s special target of conquest, per the Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America of 1991.

In part the Memorandum reads:

  • Enablement of Islam in North America, meaning: establishing an effective and stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslims' causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims' efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic state, wherever it is.
  • In order for Islam and its Movement to become "a part of the homeland" in which it lives, "stable" in its land, "rooted" in the spirits and minds of its people, "enabled" in the live [sic] of its society and has firmly-established "organizations" on which the Islamic structure is built and with which the testimony of civilization is achieved, the Movement must plan and struggle to obtain "the keys" and the tools of this process in carry [sic] out this grand mission as a "Civilization Jihadist" responsibility which lies on the shoulders of Muslims and – on top of them – the Muslim Brotherhood in this country.
  • The process of settlement is a "Civilization-Jihadist Proecess" with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim's destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.

Islam infests nations just as Progressivism has saddled the U.S. with a welfare/regulatory state. It has frog-marched Europe and is strangling it in the choke-hold of altruist morality. Islam holds Europe and Britain to Christianity’s standard of moral goodness and activism of sacrificing itself to an invasion of hordes of unassimilable Muslims and “respecting” Islam, by incrementally introducing and enforcing Sharia law, and by prohibiting all criticism of Islam, under pain of fines and/or jail. When non-Muslim governments fall down on that job, Islam reserves the option of acting itself to bring about obedience and submission, “Islam” meaning submission.

Progressivism aims for the same goal, a populace subdued and policed by a “higher authority,” in public and in one’s mind. This is why the left and Islam are partners in conquest.

Herbert Croly, soothsayer of
Herbert Croly (1869–1930), was the early 20th century champion of Progressivism. He threaded together all the disparate ambitions and manifestations of Progressive thought (wages, women’s rights, etc.) and presented them in what turned out to be the “biblical” expression of the political philosophy in The Promise of American Life (1909). Croly’s ideas were also instrumental in shaping President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal.

Sidney Pearson, Professor Emeritus, Radford University, of The Heritage Foundation, explains the appeal of Progressivism to the current political and business elites:

What gave the Progressive movement its theoretical unity, in spite of internal quarrels among various writers, thinkers, and politicians, was its uniform opposition to the founding principles of the American regime. Progressives opposed the natural law and natural rights arguments of the Declaration of Independence in favor of a political science founded on historical evolution. The metaphors were typically Darwinian, and the substance was derived from German–Hegelian historicism.

The Progressive movement aimed at nothing less than the total and complete transformation of the American regime. In Croly’s words, “The best that can be said on behalf of this traditional American system of ideas is that it contained the germ of better things.”

In practice, this meant a criticism of the Founders’ idea of limited government with enumerated powers. In electoral politics, as it was expressed by writers such as Herbert Croly, Progressive democracy was built on an increased concentration of political power, primarily in the executive.

The Progressive movement aimed at nothing less than the total and complete transformation of the American regime. From one of freedom of thought, expression, and action and the liberty to pursue, unimpeded, one’s own happiness, to a social environment in which the individual is corralled, fettered, and regulated in a collective for the “public good” or for the Islamic collective. This goal differs little from the Islamic goal of establishing universal Sharia Law overseeing a global Ummah of all Muslims and a state of servitude for all non-Muslims.
Globalist or Jihadist? Wants a bite of you

The Religious Tolerance site a concise definition of Sharia Law:

The term "Sharia" (a.k.a. Shari'a) literally means "the path to a watering hole." The Guardian newspaper in the UK describes Sharia as: "... a religious code for living, in the same way that the Bible offers a moral system for Christians." It is used to refer both to the Islamic system of law and the totality of the Islamic way of life.

Islam in the jihadist sense means perpetual warfare against unbelievers until they are conquered or extinguished. Conquest of the unbelievers is its essential “code for living.” It is not about sacrifice or self-sacrifice, as a Christian duty. Its “struggle” is not, as is commonly assumed, an internal one, but a ceaseless one against a world of unbelievers to achieve “perfection” as a Muslim and to win eternal bliss in an afterlife in Allah’s Paradise.

On the other hand, there is the century-old Progressive jihad against America to “transform” it into a socialist, and, inevitably, a fascist polity in which the individual must submit to the state or the collective or be deemed a “non-person.” As in Islam, there is no “either/or” alternative. And as with Mussolini’s Fascism, All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state,” it is the same with Islam. A global caliphate would demand the same all-encompassing rule. “All within Sharia, nothing outside it, nothing against it.” To Islam, man-made laws are an abomination. The term “democracy” is also an anathema to Islam.  Islam is a totalitarian system, root, branch, and twig. Islam and Progressives want no truck with democracy (or majority rule). Progressivism, too, is totalitarian in nature. It means a rule of “elites,” of self-appointed rulers who believe they know best for everyone, from cribs to diets to careers, to the kind of spouse one marries

Is there a difference between the proposed systems? Between the goals of Islam and the leftist organizations such as the Democracy Alliance?

None that I can fathom. To Progressives the State is Allah. The State is what everyone is expected to worship and swear allegiance to, not some mystical deity.

The Free Beacon noted about the Carlsbad synod of wealthy Progressives:

The DA's agenda, titled "Beyond #Resistance: Reclaiming our Progressive Future," establishes "participation guidelines" that include guests not sharing any of the members' names with the press or on social media. It also asks attendees to refrain from leaving any sensitive materials behind.

Friday's headliners include liberal billionaire George Soros, who was introduced by a video message from Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), and House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who is scheduled to speak at the network's dinner. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) also delivered a video message to the group.

David Brock, the former conservative investigative reporter turned Clinton ally and founder of Media Matters, DCCC chair Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (D., N.M.), CNN contributor Van Jones, Center for American Progress CEO Neera Tanden, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, California politician Sandra Fluke, and others, are also at the summit, according to the agenda.

Tom Steyer, a billionaire environmental activist and past prominent member of the alliance, who is currently in the midst of launching a campaign geared at impeaching President Donald Trump, does not appear to be at the gathering. Pelosi, who is in attendance at the summit, previously lambasted Steyer for the campaign.

However, Sky Gallegos, the political director of NextGen Climate, Steyer's group, is listed in the group's documents as having participated in a lunch program Thursday on "mobilizing the electorate for a progressive future."

Soros, of course, is helping to destroy Europe for the sake of destroying it, and is determined to do the same to America and all of Western Civilization, turning it all into one big Islamic hellhole. He is ruled by pure malice. Yet, he is called a humanitarian and philanthropist.

Joe Schoffstall penned a follow-up piece on the billionaire wannabe Caliphs in his November 21st article for the Free Beacon, “Liberal Millionaires Group Seeks to ‘Fundamentally Reset’ America’s Ideology and Economy.”

A group of deep-pocketed progressive millionaires seeks to "fundamentally reset" America's ideology and economy and "expose the dogma of free enterprise, limited government, and traditional family values," according to a brochure obtained by the Washington Free Beacon at a secretive progressive dark money donor conference.

The group, called Patriotic Millionaires, is a Washington, D.C.-based organization that consists of wealthy liberals with an income of at least $1 million. The organization initially formed in 2010 to "demand an end to Bush tax cuts for millionaires" and has launched a recent campaign against the Republican tax cut plan.

Patriotic Millionaires's newest organizational overview, which is not the same brochure that is currently available on its website, was obtained by the Free Beacon at the Democracy Alliance's fall investment conference held last week at the swanky La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, Calif. Each Democracy Alliance member vows to steer hundreds of thousands in funding to approved left-wing organizations the group supports.

The Patrotic Millionaires site boasts:

The group is chaired by Morris Pearl, a former Blackrock executive who retired 3 and a half years ago after a long career on Wall Street to work with the Patriotic Millionaires full time. Patriotic Millionaires members include investors and business owners from across the country engaged in a wide array of industries. Our members include: David desJardins, the #20 employee at Google; legendary venture capitalist Alan Patricof, New York psychologist Gail Furman; filmmaker Abigail Disney; technologist Steve Silberstein; billionaire medical device heiress Pat Stryker; investor Lawrence Benenson of Benenson Capital Partners; textile entrepreneur Great Neck Richman; philanthropist Molly Munger; corrugated cardboard magnate Dennis Mehiel and media investor Leo Hindery, Jr. among many others.

Proud “traitors to their class,” members of the Patriotic Millionaires are high-net worth Americans, business leaders, and investors who are united in their concern about the destabilizing concentration of wealth and power in America. The mission of The Patriotic Millionaires organization is to build a more stable, prosperous, and inclusive nation by promoting public policies based on the “first principles” of equal political representation, a guaranteed living wage for all working citizens, and a fair tax system:
  • All citizens should enjoy political power equal to that enjoyed by millionaires;
  • All citizens who work full time should be able to afford their basic needs;
  • Tax receipts from millionaires, billionaires and corporations should comprise a greater proportion of federal tax receipts.

Globalist or Jihadist?
Telling you what to think
Those points are but window dressing, the labored calligraphy of Progressivism meant to dazzle the gullible and guilty among “the little people.” The members of Democracy Alliance and Patriotic Millionaires are but limousine social justice warriors. Again, I discern no political-end difference between the virtue-signaling members of Democracy Alliance and Patriotic Millionaires and the belligerent hubris of Islam. As Anne Coulter once said, the limousine social justice warriors are but modern “Druids” who worship a pagan god and fly thousands of miles in gas guzzling private jets to speak about global warming. Islam worships an imaginary “superior” god made out of the whole cloth of a hijab or kufi.  

Both sets seek unquestionable power to tell you what to think, what to say, and how to live. They want their Outer Limits.

Pamela Geller: A Warrior of the Mind

I can’t say enough about Pamela Geller’s FATWA: HUNTED IN AMERICA, previously reviewed on Rule of Reason (Pamela Geller: Wonder Woman of the Counter-Jihad). I could pen a column for each chapter in the book, and it still wouldn’t do it justice. Geller is an Amazonian warrior without equal, at least in our time.

Ayn Rand was an Amazonian warrior in her time (1905-1982), and endured and survived the same level of smearing, defaming, and character assassinations at the hands of the MSM as Geller has and continues to endure now. Rand was opposed to Communism and alerted Americans to the insidious and stealthy campaign to insinuate the ideology into the culture, especially by academics and Hollywood. She was hated because of her opposition to any brand of collectivism and for her willingness to expose the sneaksbies. Islam was not an overriding concern to her or to just about everyone else in Rand’s time.

Geller has amply demonstrated how Islam is being insinuated into American politics and culture, and how it should be fought, and not merely resisted.

Rand was an indefatigable warrior of the mind. Geller is a warrior of the mind, as well. She insists that it is the ideology of Islam that must be repudiated, defeated, and extinguished. It is not just its uncounted instances of barbarism over the centuries and its totalitarian nature that must be exposed and opposed. For more people to grasp the death-worshipping nature of Islam, it must be addressed as an ideology. Nothing but a preemptive intellectual strike against Islam will disintegrate it as a “moral” system. Islam, like the Left, has no moral argument in its defense. It cannot call on the truth about itself without implicating itself. Geller is leading that strike.

If you have an ounce of self-esteem, when someone comes at you with a gun, you answer with force. If he is out to destroy you, you owe it to yourself to defend yourself. We need to understand that the left is as dangerous, if not more so, than the suicide bomber, for obscuring this basic fact. Because leftists have the legitimacy of the mainstream, the imprimatur of respectability, they wield this spurious legitimacy like a club to destroy all opposition to their totalitarian agenda. (p. 226, FATWA)

Geller’s detractors and enemies on the Left are like the Komodo Dragons of Indonesia. These prehistoric creatures are content to merely bite a victim, and inject a bacterial poison into it. They will wait until the victim dies from the poison or is helplessly paralyzed by it before consuming it. So it is with the Left and Islam. That is how the Left and the so-called “religion of peace” have worked. The First Amendment has been bitten, and it is dying. The Islamic Komodo Dragons are drooling.

Security at the Draw Mohammad Garland event
Quoting from my first review of FATWA:

To those who do not wish to think about the essence of Islam, but would rather cowardly slink behind George Bush’s mantra that Islam is “a religion of peace,” Geller has a prophetic warning:

“You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality” (p. 87).

Those consequences keep piling up the bodies and victims in jihadist attacks inspired by Islam, almost weekly.

The bigger lizard, Islam, will sooner or later come after the smaller ones. Journalism has been bitten. It is practically dead.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) reported a 1991 document of the Muslim Brotherhood, the “Explanatory Memorandum,” that explains Islam’s methods and goals of conquest:

The process of settlement is a "Civilization-Jihadist Process" with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…

Steve Emerson of IPT prefaced that startling revelation of strategy with:

This May 1991 memo was written by Mohamed Akram, a.k.a. Mohamed Adlouni, for the Shura Council of the Muslim Brotherhood. In the introductory letter, Akram referenced a "long-term plan…approved and adopted" by the Shura Council in 1987 and proposed this memo as a supplement to that plan and requested that the memo be added to the agenda for an upcoming Council meeting. Appended to the document is a list of all Muslim Brotherhood organizations in North America as of 1991.

Geller cites the Memorandum in FATWA. The MSM is the palsied (such as the New York Times), “miserable” hand that is aiding the enemy in its quest to destroy Western civilization.

Geller writes:

After years of doing battle, I would later come to understand the evil of the left and its dogma of superiority of feelings over reason…It was not until years later that I understood that the left was as big a problem, perhaps bigger, than the jihad. For the left was all about control, which is why they are aligned with the jihad forces. There is no better system of control than Sharia.

It isn’t Democrat versus Republican. It is the eternal struggle of mankind. Individualism versus collectivism. The state versus the individual. The left despises the individual, which is why they are so deeply at odds with America, why they stand with Islamic supremacists. There is no unique soul under Islam, no “individual.” America, on the other hand, was the first moral government in history to be based on individual rights (p. 15 FATWA).

The systematic sliming of the defenders of the freedom of speech is nothing new. It began shortly after the American Revolution and soon after the Constitution was ratified in 1788 (by the 9th state, New Hampshire, meeting the 2/3rds requirement), when President John Adams signed the Alien and Sedition Acts in 1798. From my September 2016 column, “Hate Speech: Then and Now”:

What went on in the mid- to late-1790s has reverse parallels today. Where the Mainstream Media (MSM) today, by its own admission, intervened to slander, libel, and smear presidential candidate Donald Trump (now the President-Elect), to aid in and guarantee the election of a criminally irresponsible, scandal-rich, unstable Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate, the writers and newspapers of the 18th century came under vicious attack from the government and the Federalists, the party of John Adams, who as President signed the Alien and Sedition Acts passed by Congress. The MSM failed ingloriously in its efforts. But Adams, who was the main target of criticism by “Republican” (the name of the early Democratic Party) writers and newspapers, unleashed the dogs of censorship on them when he signed the Alien and Sedition Acts on June 18th, 1798.

The Sedition Act outlawed what one could call the 18th century equivalent of “hate speech.” It was impermissible and punishable now to hate President John Adams (the second President after George Washington) and the Federalists and their national and foreign policies, and to voice one’s anathema for them in print or vocally. Those who did so and drew the attention of large numbers of people, were arrested and jailed. Adams and the Federalists would not otherwise have heard or read the dissatisfaction but for informers who reported the transgressions to Adams and his political allies.

This section of the Sedition Act may sound familiar to you. Google, Facebook, and YouTube are the heirs and practitioners of this brand of censorship:

SEC. 2. And be it farther enacted, That if any person shall write, print, utter or publish, or shall cause or procure to be written, printed, uttered or published, or shall knowingly and willingly assist or aid in writing, printing, uttering or publishing any false, scandalous and malicious writing or writings against the government of the United States, or either house of the Congress of the United States, or the President of the United States, with intent to defame the said government, or either house of the said Congress, or the said President, or to bring them, or either of them, into contempt or disrepute; or to excite against them, or either or any of them, the hatred of the good people of the United States….

Substitute Islam for the “government of the United States,” Congress, or the President, and you will get the point. In this instance, it was the government suppressing any criticism of itself by criminalizing words printed in what was then a free and raucous press. Writers and editors were arrested for having printed, written, or spoken those words; they were tried, and served time in prison. By the time Adams left office in 180 to make way for Thomas Jefferson, only two of those victims languishing in jail were the sole survivors of the persecution, out of possibly dozens. Jefferson immediately pardoned them.

Today, however, it is that new “free press,” not the government (not yet), that has become the judge and jury of any anyone speaking out against Islam, for holding it in contempt, disrepute, or ridicule, and for inciting “hatred” for it in people (“Islamophobia,” bigotry, and racism, even though Islam is not a race and has follower and converts from every ethnic group), and feels free to defame and denigrate anyone who speaks the truth about Islam. Our “free press” has become a tool of a totalitarian ideology that tolerates no criticism (as the Nazis did not), and so is no longer “free.” If Islam will not tolerate the freedom of speech, neither will the MSM. The MSM has become the despised “running dog” of Islam. And we know that, at its core, Islam and Muslims hate dogs.

Geller writes in FATWA:

For years, the left and its media lapdogs have created narratives out of whole cloth about the impending violence from the right…(p. 222, FATWA).

(For example, the “backlash” in the U.S. against Muslims that never happened or ever happens after a particularly vicious and bloody jihadist attack, e.g. 9/11, Orlando, Boston, New York) is a violence that the left hopes will happen so it can argue for more gun control, and speech controls. I can only say that this species of malevolent hope of the MSM is evidence of a sociopath. But when the violence occurs, it is usually the work of jihadists, and when the MSM is forced to concede it, the jihadists are excused because of “mental illness” or imaginary persecution or discrimination. Or they are “excusably” provoked by the actions and words of Geller and other “right-wingers).

The left always blames us for violence, no matter how nonexistent the ties. Even when I was the target of an assassination plot in Garland [with some FBI connivance], the left blamed me because I would not adhere to the blasphemy laws under Sharia (p. 223; brackets mine; Geller discusses the FBI’s connivance in Chapter X: “Garland, Texas: ISIS Attacks the Homeland”).

In short, she would not bend to Sharia. And never will. So she had to die.

In short, the MSM narrative asserts that Geller “provoked” the jihadists by exercising her right to speak freely and to display a gallery of Mohammad images. Speakers and writers of the truth are today accused of “hate speech,” when in fact it is the MSM and Islam that indulge freely in “hate speech.”

Geller is a moviemaker, aside from being a prolific writer (Can’t We Talk About This?), and a tireless champion of the freedom of speech. In FATWA: HUNTED IN AMERICA she details her fight against knock-kneed transportation authorities to get her many ads put on buses and in subway

stations. One of her billboards is prominently displayed in Times Square. She an advocate of the victims of Muslim honor-killings, and a public speaker when she is allowed to speak and even allowed to appear anywhere. Almost single-handedly, she defeated plans to erect the Ground Zero Mosque. She is a founder, with Robert Spencer, and a prime mover behind the American Freedom  Defense Initiative (AFDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA). The Wikipedia entries on Geller, Spencer, and the AFDI are prime examples of the lop-sided kinds of pro-Islam “journalism” that is the norm today.

Before the dhimmis of the MSM go to sleep, they first check their closets or look under their beds for the boogeyman jihadists of Islam they fear will behead them. But all they find is stern-eyed,
indomitable Pamela Geller. And they fear her more than they do jihadists.
