Sweden is the seventh richest country in the world in terms of GDP per capita and its high standard of living. It is famous for supporting the Norwegian resistance during World War II; for helping to rescue Danish Jews from deportation to concentration camps; and for its native son, Raoul Wallenberg, who rescued up to 100,000 Hungarian Jews during the Holocaust.
We recognize Sweden as the country that gave us the incomparable Ingrid Bergman and Greta Garbo, writers Ingmar Bergman and August Strindberg, IKEA furniture, high-quality steel production, the Volvo, the pop group ABBA, and Pippi Longstocking.
But Sweden's latest source of prominence, its third largest city, Malmo, founded c. 1275, is now known as the City to Leave. Its Jewish population is fleeing, as Malmo has become home to Muslim immigrants, antisemitism and violence, which has earned for Sweden the dubious distinction of Rape Capital of the World. How is it possible for the Muslims to comprise a mere 6% of Sweden's population, yet be responsible for 77% of the rapes committed? According to the Counter Jihad report, one in four Swedish women will be raped, some killed, as sexual assaults increase by 500%.
Now, since President Obama invited 80,000 Muslims into the United States, with a promise of 100,000 per year over the next five years, and studies show that Islamic immigration brings a rise in rates of rape and molestation, there can be no doubt that we will see a corresponding increase in rape crime in America accordingly.
Is rape a fundamental part of Muslim culture? Egyptian-born Nonie Darwish, in her book, And Now They Call Me Infidel, explains the Muslim mentality that is formed by their family dynamics and interaction and by constant dissatisfaction.
Youths may not date, fall in love, or even communicate with the opposite sex. Women are severely oppressed from childhood, and not allowed to form friendships. A woman is the source of a man's pride or shame. She is made to suffer ritual female genital mutilation; her physical appearance must be concealed; she is prohibited from living as freely as men; and she must obey strict Shari'a law – to either suffer in a polygamous marriage that encourages jealousy and diminishes her importance, or to become an Islamic slave in a brief marriage – as brief as a few hours. Divorce is the male's option, as easy as saying "I divorce you." Since there is no common property between husband and wife, and his property does not automatically go to the wife after his death, the "one-night stand" is legal under Shari'a law.
There are also a number of taboos and laws that not only undermine a woman's security and self-respect, but also dominate her relationship to her children and others. The result is an environment that sets women up against each other, poisoned with distrust, grief, isolation, and financial insecurity.
What better way of defining the exploitation of sexual favors, forced labor or services, slavery or similar practices of servitude of one person (an underage female) by her parent to another adult (called a husband), than by human trafficking – the deception and coercion used by the parent when he/she transfers parental custody to the stranger, accompanied by an exchange of payment.
Men are also impacted by Shari'a law. Because his honor is determined by the female's behavior, he becomes despotic, and may even kill his wife and children to endorse his dignity. The men are first raised by their unhappy, demoralized mothers in a sexually oppressive society, where he is also economically unable to keep up with the older men who can buy any number of liaisons and support as many as four wives. The first-born son is also needed as protection of his mother against her husband's unjust treatment. All this leads to interlocking loyalties, fears, and unusual bonding, if any.
Polygamy deprives everyone of the intimacy and security found in a monogamous or faithful marriage. Although the man governs his women, in all other circumstances, he endures indignity, humility, and degradation from all who live within a brutal regime. With abuse in every part of his life, including the workplace, he is disaffected, angry, ripe for fundamentalism – even eager to give up his life for the promise of heaven and the elusive sexual satisfaction.
The populace is taught to stay in the tribe, to never befriend the outsiders, and to fervently focus on hating Israel and the West, even if they know nothing about those countries or people. The hate becomes their identity, blaming the West for their culture's failure. If their military leadership fails, if life is difficult, the economy bad, they feel less victimized if they can place the blame elsewhere. It's a simple fact that no one takes responsibility for anything in Islam and everyone blames everyone else.
A polygamous society lacks cohesion and fellowship and is based on distrust, with hatred being at the surface, boiling and ready to explode against the most vulnerable. This is nihilism** – the man's harming the woman, stealing her humanity and security. It is what the jihadist hopes to do to the civilization that he has invaded.
And this all leads to an article that came to my attention – students in a biology class at the University of Iowa are being taught that rape is "human nature." Regarding criminal sexual assaults as human nature is obviously offensive and dismissive, a way of allowing or even encouraging the behavior to continue. While certain university professors suggested rape "has an evolutionary origin ... genetically developed strategy sustained over generations of human life...a successful reproductive strategy," it is entirely unacceptable in a civilized society, an act for which the perpetrator must be severely punished.
The sanctioning of rape is being insinuated into our culture through our youth as yet another tentacle of Islamization. We will not accept cruelty and criminal behavior as human nature. We have evolved considerably since a code of high morality, ethics, compassion and justice was put into place by the Hebrews during the Bronze/Iron age. We will not sink to the depths of degradation offered by a culture that, centuries later, brought the antithesis of our society to the world.
What the students should be learning is that not all cultures are civilized, that it is important to realize and nurture our own exceptionalism compared to those that are bent on humanity's destruction, and that an ideal civilization controls, contains, and rejects the elements of human nature that harm and devalue others – women, for example. This is one of many of the proverbial slippery slopes, where the liberal thinker accommodates the Islamist, and rejects morality, the American Constitution, and the future designed for us by our Founding Fathers.
1. total rejection of established laws and institutions.
2. anarchy, terrorism, or other revolutionary activity.
3. total and absolute destructiveness, especially toward the world at large and including oneself.

Radical Islam Once again, the world standing of the United States has dropped another critical notch on the international front. Only this time, it was a quite coup under the radar. Few people have heard about it. But it is VERY significant.
While the Olympic Games were going on in mid-February, most people were not aware that a significant powwow took place in Moscow between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Chief of the Egyptian Army, Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. In the meeting, Putin pledged economic assistance to Egypt’s new government and further supported al-Sisi’s projected run to be Egypt’s next president.
And where is the U.S.? We’re out. Our relationship with secular Egypt is history. Egypt is the strongest nation in the Arab world, with whom the U.S. has enjoyed a strong and important allied relationship for the last thirty years. That also strengthened the security situation for Israel who relied on our ties to Egypt, one of only two counties that signed a peace accord with the Jewish state when Carter was president.
How did this all fall apart?
The so-called Arab Spring which started in 2011 was nothing more than a monstrous planned take-over of Islamic countries by the notorious Muslim Brotherhood. It was supported by the U.S. President Barack Obama. Playing to the objectives of the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama openly called for the ouster of Egypt President Hosni Mubarak, our ally. He also called for the ouster of Lybia’s Moammar Ghadaffi, even deploying military support of “rebels” (i.e. Muslim Brotherhood terrorists) without gaining approval of congress. We all know the end result in Lybia: al Qaeda, al-Sharia, and a new Islamist government which helped to murder our Ambassador, and three other Americans two years ago.
When the Muslim Brotherhood first gained control of the government under Mohammed Morsi, the few Jewish synagogues were destroyed along with more than 40 Christian churches throughout Egypt. Islamic extremism was in, moderation was out.
The Obama administration supported these pro-Morsi uprisings.
But it backfired. In 2013, the Egyptian people – by the mega-millions – took to the streets in major cities and virtually ousted the Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi government because they knew it was now or never: They wanted to be free; they wanted to be secular; they wanted nothing to do with the fundamentalism of the Muslim Brotherhood. It was similar to the Nazi takeover of 1932-33, only the German people didn’t see what was coming, the Egyptians did. So the Egyptians took back their country, arrested Morsi and declared the Muslim Brotherhood illegal, as it had been when Mubarak was president.
All of these upheavals and consequent killings would never have occurred, had it not been for the support of the Muslim Brotherhood by the U.S. government.
Feeling betrayed, the Egyptian people turned against the United States government, feeling betrayed. In cities like Cairo and Alexandria, citizens hoisted banners everywhere declaring Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. Ambassador Anne Patterson and President Barack Obama as supporters of terrorism, unwelcomed in Egypt.
The American mainstream media played all this down, including Fox News, but the facts are out there for anyone willing to dig for answers. The American government is now persona non-gratia in Egypt – the most important Arab nation in the middle east.
Fault clearly lies at the doorstep of the White House and the Obama administration, who has been cozying with the Muslim Brotherhood since taking office. When the Egyptian takeover failed, thanks to the free-spirited Egyptian people, the U.S. relationship died. We’re no longer trusted. A new and unwanted foreign relations vacuum has predictably been filled by another nation: Russia.
Putin wins again.

While our attention is directed toward other international venues, our eyes are no longer focused on the colossal failure in Egypt. While the American people might by ignorant of the egregious actions of our administration, the Egyptian people are certainly up-to-date. They have to be. They had the most to lose. When the domestic rebellion against the Muslim Brotherhood hit the streets of major cities there, ubiquitous signs and placards clearly expressed the people’s disdain for the Obama team. (see photos below)
These people are not right-wing nuts. These people are not fans of Fox News. They are not liberal or conservative. They are not racists. They are freedom-loving Egyptian people who refused to live under the yoke of Islamic fascism.
Check out these images from Egypt when the anti-Morsi, anti-Muslim Brotherhood rebellion was going on. (This is just a sampling)
This should be a book, not an article, there is so much to the story. But when it’s all analyzed, ask yourselves: How are we doing on the international stage? Would there have been a so-called Arab Spring (Muslim Brotherhood uprising) if not for the backing of Barack Obama? Considering all the destruction and deaths that followed, whose hands are stained with the blood of those people?

A one time investment of $2 billion – less than the cost of the 2012 Presidential election - would provide our national electric grid robust EMP protection. Yet, Congress hasn’t passed the SHIELD ACT.
On June 18, the Congressional EMP Caucus held a public event to launch the SHIELD ACT that would protect the national electric grid from natural or man-made Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) It works like a super-energetic radio wave that can damage and destroy all electronic systems across vast regions, potentially across the Entire Continental United States. EMP is harmless to people in its direct effects, but it would create the failure of critical infrastructures that sustain our lives, such as electricity , water, communication and literately everything we depend on today; trains will collide, planes could crash and ships could sink. Anyone with an implanted medical devise could die, banks would shut down as would their ATMs… and on and on. Clearly, the Indirect Effects of EMP would be Genocidal.
EMP is a high-tech means of killing millions of people. The old fashioned way –was through starvation, disease, and societal collapse.
An EMP can be generated by a terrorist or rogue state nuclear missile, perhaps launched off a freighter near our shores to preserve anonymity, and burst at high-altitude over the United States. In this manner, a single crude nuclear weapon, lofted by a primitive short-range missile, could generate an EMP that would destroy electronics and electric power everywhere, stopping the operation of the critical infrastructures–power, transportation, communications, banking and finance, food and water–that are vital to the existence of modern society and the survival of the American people.
Iran, the world’s chief sponsor of international terrorism, openly writes about eliminating the United States with an EMP attack, has conducted live missile launches simulating EMP attacks, and has practiced missile launching from a vessel in the Caspian Sea. North Korea, China and Russia also make no secret of their preparations to Destroy the United States with ELECTRO-MAGNETIC PULSE!
A ship-launched EMP attack by terrorists or rogue states would conceal the identity of the attacker, so we might never know who hit us.
An EMP can also be generated by the Sun. A solar flare or coronal mass ejection can generate a rare geomagnetic super-storm similar to an EMP attack from a high-yield nuclear weapon, with equally catastrophic consequences. The last geomagnetic super-storm was the Carrington Event of 1859, that caused worldwide damage and fires in telegraph stations and other primitive electronics–none of which were then necessary for societal survival.
No geomagnetic super-storm has occurred since 1859 to threaten the existence of our increasingly electronic society. Great geomagnetic storms are estimated to occur every century or so. Many scientists think we are overdue. Many believe there is a heightened risk of a geomagnetic super-storm during the peak of the solar maximum, that is occurring now and will last through 2013. The solar maximum recurs every 11 years.
A Carrington-class geomagnetic super-storm, that could collapse electric grids and critical infrastructures everywhere on Earth, is someday inevitable
The above findings represent the mainstream scientific consensus, first established by the congressionally mandated EMP Commission, which examined the nuclear and natural EMP threat for eight years, delivering its final report to Congress in 2008. The National Academy of Sciences subsequently independently re-examined the EMP Commission’s warnings about the consequences of a geomagnetic super-storm, and arrived at the same conclusion, and endorsed the recommendations of the EMP Commission.
In 2009, the Congressional Commission on the Strategic Posture of the United States re-examined the EMP threat from terrorists and rogue states, and likewise independently concurred with the EMP Commission’s warning and recommendations. Through 2010, several other major U.S. government studies, including by the Department of Energy and an interagency study led by the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, have again re-examined the nuclear and natural EMP threat, concurred with the EMP Commission’s warning, and urged immediate implementation of the EMP Commission’s recommendations.
Most recently, in December 2012, the National Intelligence Council, which speaks for the entire U.S. Intelligence Community, published an unclassified report Global Trends 2030 that warned an EMP is one of only eight “Black Swan” events that could change the course of global civilization by or before 2030. So there is an official consensus on the EMP threat within the U.S. Government studies, with no official study dissenting from the view that EMP is a potentially catastrophic threat that needs to be addressed, Urgently.
The EMP Commission warned that, given our current state of unpreparedness, within 12 months of a catastrophic EMP event, some two-thirds to 90 percent of the total U.S. population, more than 200 million Americans, would perish from starvation, disease and societal collapse.
The good news is that the EMP Commission provided a cost-effective plan, endorsed by all subsequent U.S. government studies, that could within a few years protect U.S. critical infrastructures from the worst effects of EMP. Indeed, protecting the 300 most important high-energy transformers that are indispensable to the national power grid is estimated to cost $100-200 million–about one dollar for every American life that would be saved. This alone is probably not sufficient protection, but it is the absolute minimum necessary to create the possibility of saving millions of American lives.
The SHIELD ACT, introduced by Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) and co-sponsored by Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D-NY), would implement one of the most important recommendations of the EMP Commission. SHIELD would empower the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to require the electric power industry to protect the national grid from EMP. SHIELD would require industry to protect the grid by selective “hardening” of vital components by using surge arrestors, blocking devices, faraday cages and other proven technologies that the Department of Defense has known for fifty years can reliably protect military systems from EMP.
There is no excuse to risk millions of American lives by failing to protect the grid. The Congressional EMP Commission estimated robust EMP protection of the national electric grid can be accomplished by a one-time investment of $2 billion dollars–which is what the U.S. gives to Pakistan every year in foreign aid. The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission estimates that protecting the national grid could be accomplished at a cost to the average rate payer of merely 20 cents annually.
The electric grid is the “keystone” of the critical infrastructures as everything, all the other critical infrastructures that sustain our economy and our existence as a modern society depend, directly or indirectly, upon electricity. Enactment of the SHIELD ACT and protection of the national electric grid will be a giant step forward toward securing our nation against the effects of an EMP Catastrophe.
