IF one clearly understands the bottom line end goal for Islamists in America and worldwide – the imposition of Shariah Law to resurrect the Caliphate – well, that which exploded within Orlando (and throughout a swathe of militant Islamic jihad within America, even before 9/11//01, but let’s not digress) makes perfect sense. Incontestably.
IN tandem, if most rational thinking Americans recognized that the so-called mainstream media will never – ever – alert the nation that Islam’s barbarians have declared WAR against the homeland, they would have abandoned the heretofore (Islamic captured) Fourth Estate years ago and placed it in the garbage heap of media history. Not only that, they would be relying solely on alternative sources, as well as their own intuitive instincts, that which leads in only one direction – Islam’s soldiers for Allah have declared war on America (Israel, and the west at large) and the battle is actually being fought on US soil! Mind you, the fact that it hasn’t reached ones actual neighborhood, well, that’s just the luck of the draw. Happenstance. But sooner than later it will. Guaranteed. As a matter of stated record, tragically, countless still remain deaf, dumb and blind to said reality, even as the body count piles up!
BE that as it may, that was then and this is now. So for those willing to learn their requisite lessons, as to what needs to be executed on an IMMEDIATE and URGENT level, look no further than to the application of the Smith Act.
MIND you, if one can find another more qualified (and patriotic) scholar on the ins and outs of the American Constitution and the underpinnings of Statesmanship and all that it entails – including, what Congress is dutifully mandated to execute, when the nation is faced with a clear and present danger – good luck with that.
SCHOOL’s in session…..
Professor Paul Eidelberg (PhD University of Chicago) is an American-Israeli political scientist, author and lecturer, and is the founder and president of The Foundation for Constitutional Democracy , with offices in Jerusalem. He is the author of over 21 books, including a trilogy on America’s founding fathers: The Philosophy of the American Constitution, On the Silence of the Declaration of Independence , and a Discourse on Statesmanship.
With Barack Obama in the White House, the number of Islamic organizations and mosques will continue to increase geometrically. This spells “sedition,” far more palpable and dangerous than communist penetration of the U.S. prior to the Second World War.
Although the Supreme Court, in 1957, threw out numerous convictions under the Smith Act as unconstitutional, the statute remains on the books, and may yet be provided a model for anti-sedition legislation if the Republicans gain control of the White House after the 2016 presidential election.
According to a recent FBI report, there are more than 6,000 mosques in the U.S. of which about 20 percent preach Jihad. Were there 1,200 communist cells operating in the U.S. in 1940? And were they being financed by a Soviet equivalent of Saudi Arabia? Besides, could Communist cells in the 1940’s cover their sedition under the façade of religion?
Islamic sedition will soon become an obvious existential threat in the United States. Hence, the necessity of some sort of Smith Act will be more obvious in 2016 than it was in 1940, when the statute was enacted.
Is anyone thinking along these lines? The warnings of Newt Gingrich, Brigitte Gabriel, David Horowitz, and others regarding the Islamic-Sharia offensive in the U.S. are fairly restrained (understandably so). In any event, it seems to me that someone skilled in constitutional law should quietly adapt the Smith Act (and the Supreme Court’s reasoning on this issue) to the unique character of Islamic sedition. The “clear and present danger” of communist sedition in the late 1950’s and 1960’s pales in significant compared to the threat posed by the spread of Islam in all sectors of American society including the United States Government.
Here is some information about the Smith Act:
The Alien Registration Act of 1940, usually called the Smith Act because its anti-sedition section was authored by Representative Howard W. Smith of Virginia, is prescribed in 54 Statutes at Large 670-671 (1940). The Act has been amended several times and can now be found at 18 U.S. Code § 2385 (2000).
§ 2385. Advocating Overthrow of Government.
Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or
Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or
Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof–
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
As used in section § 2385, the terms “organizes” and “organize”, with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons.
The Smith Act clearly applies to Muslim organizations in the United States such as CAIR, the Council on American–Islamic Relations. CAIR is an Islamic supremacist organization that pioneered 20th century Islamic terrorism, and it sanctions violence against the United States. CAIR is headquartered on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., and has regional offices nationwide. Through media relations, lobbying, and education, CAIR promotes Islamic, hence anti-American perspectives to the American public, while promoting social and political activism among Muslims in America. Moreover, CAIR is suspected of being linked to terrorist organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood and to HAMAS in the Gaza strip. Of course, no action will be taken against CAIR as long as Barack Obama is in the White House.
However, one would think that one or another American presidential candidate would raise this issue of national security in their criticism of the Obama Administration, especially in view of President Obama’s inability to utter the words “Islamic terrorism.”
Islamic terrorism constitutes a clear and present danger to the United States, as understood by the language of the Smith Act. Hence, patriotic American statesmen and organizations should rise up and sound the warning that America has been penetrated by her deadliest enemy.
Since we in America cannot and dare not rely on the Muslim and leftist-penetrated Obama Government to defend us against the coming wave of intensified and widespread attacks of Islamic terrorism, we must enlarge the power and functions of State and local law enforcement agencies to protect American citizens.
Americans need to understand that we are at war with Islam, Islam per se, Islam without qualifying adjectives. We need to know that the emerging nuclear armed Iran is the spearhead of Islam. The Mullahs of Iran gleefully scream “Death to America,’ and they vow to wipe our most important strategic ally, Israel, off the map. This means that Islam’s global historical objective is to eliminate both Christianity and Judaism, the primary sources of Western Civilization.
Bear in mind that the Quran, in verse 9:111, “exalts the Muslim who “slays and is slain for Allah,” which means that the fear of death does not deter Muslims as it does liberal democracies steeped in pacifism or led by leftists or socialists.
We need to elect clear-minded and courageous leaders with deep American beliefs and values. We need to think of America as the one nation that twice saved mankind from Nazi and Communist tyranny and that now must rise to save mankind from Islamic tyranny..
AND for more supportive evidence of how many times (and ways) this investigative journalist shouted from the (web-based and print) rooftops of the impending dangers, refer (once again, or for the first time, whatever the case may be) to “ISIS, Islam And Obama:Understanding The Threat To The Free World.“
To further illuminate the difficult subjects we are discussing, we asked Israeli journalist Adina Kutnicki and American investigator and security specialist David Gaubatz to weigh in on the threat from ISIS and the expanding Islamist army.
Adina is an expert on the Muslim Brotherhood and her previous interview about the expansionist ideology of the organization sent shock-waves across the internet. Adina is an editor of several websites that examine the growing violence in the name of Islam, and she is the creator of a popular Israeli blog. Her insights into the conflict between Israel and the Islamic terrorists of Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority will give our readers an opportunity to find out the truth about the Middle East without the Israel bashing propaganda of the mainstream media.
David Gaubatz is the author of a book about the Council on American–Islamic Relations and the Islamic infiltration of America, Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America. Gaubatz is a U.S. State Department-trained Arabic linguist and a retired Federal Agent with the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI). With over three decades of combined experience, his career has led him on missions spanning the Middle East — from Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Kuwait to Iraq. As a Special Federal Agent, he has received the highest forms of U.S. security clearances for top-secret intelligence information — including for weapons of mass destruction and espionage — and has been briefed into many black projects.
Since leaving the government, Mr.Gaubatz has dedicated himself to exposing the Islamists who are infiltrating our nation at the highest levels. He is the Director of the Mapping Shariah Project, one of the few organizations willing to speak openly about Islam’s subversive activities in America. The project was funded by the Center for Security Policy to investigate what was being taught at Mosques across the United States. The information uncovered by Mr. Gaubatz and his investigators will frighten and outrage most freedom loving Americans, while the apologists for Islam will ignore every fact and scream Islamophobe until our ears bleed…..continue reading, if you dare.
THE urgent questions are:
- Do patriots believe that war has been declared on America?
- If so, who are the main inciters and instigators, aside from the culprits in the White House and their enablers?
- Has war reached the streets of America? If not, please explain.
- If so, isn’t the first order of national business to round up, then charge, all the main organizations behind said war effort?
YES, never mind their “religious” cover, and all those who scream: how can Americans “attack” another’s “beliefs”?
FOR heaven’s sake!
THAT’s a wrap – for now.
