Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi ‘died like a dog’ says Trump.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi ‘died like a dog’ says Trump

Dead

Few people can lower themselves to the level of evil that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had done in his life. The man was a butcher of the innocent and the helpless. Whatever fanatical justification he may spouted out there was no rational or strategic reason for the wholesale cruelty that commanded ISIS to perform.

It was cruelty on a scale that we had not seen since the Dark Ages. Even the 20th century butchers like Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot never blatantly boasted of their mass killings. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, on the other hand, delighted in showing people being slowly beheaded, burnt in cages, tortured , crucified. It was if he was telling the world that he was truly evil and that no one could stop him as ISIS marched across the middle east. This man was not just terrorist, hell bent on creating a Caliphate by any means necessary. He and his gleeful follower in ISIS were displaying his sadistic perversions to the world. The man was so into creating real torture porn that he would have the results published on the internet.

Perhaps one of the cruelest legacies of ISIS was the shameless revival of slavery. It was not enough just to torture and murder humans, ISIS also degraded their value to that of cattle to be sold in an open market.

Here is list of prices:

  • Women 40 to 50 years old are to be sold for 50,000 dinar, or $42 in U.S. dollars.
  • Yazidi and Christian women 30 to 40 years old are 75,000 dinar, or $63 in U.S. dollars.
  • Women 20 to 30 years old are 100,000 dinar ($85).
  • Women and children 10 to 20 years old are 150,000 dinar ($127).
  • Children ages 1 to 9 are 200,000 dinar ($169 in U.S. dollars).

Story of sexual abuse, sexual slavery by ISIS fighters abound, along with the decapitation, public drowning and the bulldozing of a crowd. ISIS under the leadership of al-Baghdadi was hell on Earth for anyone that he chose to disfavour.

The man in charge of ISIS as it swept across the middle east was always hidden away from harm as if it was strange video game where he could not get hurt.

Remember this?

That all changed when President Donald Trump announced that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was dead. The number one terrorist in the world had run into a dead end tunnel with 3 of his children before he blew himself up with a suicide vest.

https://www.smh.com.au/world/middle-east/islamic-state-leader-abu-bakr-al-baghdadi-targeted-by-us-forces-20191027-p534oj.html

Trump described the event like this:

“The thug who tried so hard to intimidate others spent his last moments in utter fear, panic and dread, terrified of the American forces coming down on him,” Trump said.

“He reached the end of the tunnel as our dogs chased him down. He ignited his vest, killing himself and his three children. His body was mutilated by the blasts. The tunnel had caved on him.”

“He was whimpering and crying and screaming all the way. He died like a dog. He died like a coward.”

Rather than show great relief and gratitude the some element in the western media have been scathing of Trump whilst others have been downplaying Baghdadi as a terrorist.

Washington Post announced the death with this headline:

From Bloomberg Politics@bpolitics

Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi transformed himself from a little-known teacher of Koranic recitation into the self-proclaimed ruler of an entity that covered swaths of Syria and Iraq

However, the one thing that seems to have set people off was Trump saying that Baghdadi ‘died like a dog’.

Aljazeera correspondent Patty Culhane had this to say:

“The president did something that we don’t see U.S. presidents do,” Culhane explained following Trump performance. “He used language that is going to really incite al-Baghdadi’s followers if they hear it. He called him a dog, said he died whimpering like a coward, said he wished he could show the video so that people could see exactly how he died.”

CNBC reporter John Harwood:

“Trump relishes describing ghastly violence,” tweeted CNBC reporter John Harwood. Trump said that watching the operation was akin to “watching a movie.”

CNN presented this analysis by Chris Cillizza:

The 41 most shocking lines from Donald Trump’s Baghdadi announcement

Here Chris goes into a complete rant about what was wrong about what he hated about Trump’s announcement of al-Baghdadi’s death. It is very scant on condemning al-Baghdadi.

This controversy can been seen coming to a head in a Studio 10 argument that started when Joe Hildebrand agreed with Trumps comments.

Full points to Joe Hildebrand fall calling out the PC nonsense.

Editorial Comment:

Saying that al-Baghdadi died like a dog is not the worst thing that can be said about him. Even a dog would not do what this excuse for a man has done.

Doctors or Serial Killers? Police find 2,246 preserved fetal remains.

September 15, 2019

Are they Doctors or Serial Killers? Police find 2,246 preserved fetal remains.

Dr Ulrich George Klopfe was struck off the record by the Indiana Medical Licensing in 2016 for a string of legal infractions.

Klopfe, who ran 3 abortion clinics, has a complaint filed by the Indiana Attorney General’s Office that alleged that he violated state law 9 times.

According to a release from the Office of the Indiana Attorney General, Klopfer performed around 2,405 surgical and medical abortions at his three clinic locations between January 2012 and November 2013.

The Board found Klopfer to be guilty of 5 out of the 9 allegations brought before them by the Attorney General’s Office. Among these, Klopfer was accused of the following:

  • Failing to timely report–within three days as required by law– abortions performed on 13-year old girls
  • Failing to keep up with proper professional and medical competency standards
  • Failing to obtain informed and voluntary consent for seven patients at least 18 hours prior to the abortion procedure
  • Not having qualified staff on hand to monitor anesthesia
  • Submitting over 1,800 Termination of Pregnancy Reports with omissions or errors
  • Failing to properly complete and submit records to the state Department of Health when abortions were performed on two 13-year-old girls.

During the 15 hour testimony Klopfer’s admitted that he did not report a 10-year-old abortion patient to authorities, even though her parents informed Klopfer she was pregnant due to rape by a family member. The board was apparently shocked by his inaction in reporting the crime.

Ref: https://www.wndu.com/content/news/South-Bend-abortion-doctor-loses-medical-license-391410961.html

In 2010 and 2012, state inspectors found that Klopfer allowed the bodies of aborted babies to be stored in a refrigerator alongside medication the office would dispense to its patients. They also found unsigned consent forms, fire hazards, and a nitrous oxide tank that had expired in December 1989.

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/man-charged-with-child-molestation-after-abortionist-failed-to-report-13-yr

This paint a picture of a man who looked to be more interested in the churn of running an abortion business than the care of his patients. Further accusations of his lack of care have been listed the Reachchoice blogsite where he has been sued multiple times. The most shocking report is this:

One patient, Patricia T., alleged that Klopfer misdiagnosed her fetus as dead, obtaining her permission for an evacuation that killed what had actually been a healthy fetus.

On September 3 2019 Klopfer died.

On 12th September 2019 received a call from an attorney for the family to report finding fetal remains at Klopfer’s personal property.

Will County sheriff detectives went to the property and found 2,246 medically preserved fetal remains. The coroner’s office took possession of the remains.

Why the remains were on Klopher’s premisses is still unknown as there is no evidence that abortions were performed there.

Police are still investigating.

Editorial Comment:

Some serial killers keep trophies of their victims.

Klopher was considered to be one of the most prolific abortionist in US history. He ran 3 clinic where tens of thousands of abortions were performed.

Long after he was struck off the record as a doctor he was keeping these preserved remains in his private collection. This goes well beyond scientific study to ghoulish obsession.

If each of these represents a human life what does this collection of 2,246 lives say about the abortion laws?

Did the abortion industry give a place for serial killers to operate without fear of ever facing justice?

You be the judge.

Myapologetics will not be going to China this year – here is why

August 28, 2019

Over the last few years I had been scheduled by my work place to spend 5-6 week in China. This year I decided not to go.

After careful consideration of all the changing factors and personal cost of being away from my family for 6 weeks I made the decision to avoid being in China in 2019.

Dr Yang has been detained under mysterious circumstances since January and held without access to lawyers, and was formally arrested last week.

Personal considerations aside, it seems that my decision is being validated by the turmoil that is happening between mainland China and Hong Kong. I have been to China several times and organised several other staff member to make the trip for the purpose of teaching IT. For those that have been to China it has been a very rewarding and at the same time surreal experience that is often hard to explain.

The people of China are friendly, helpful and often honest to the point of comedy. Outwardly, it was one of the most crime free places I have every visited. Inwardly, every expatriate and foreign worker knew that their own situation hung by a very thin thread. Any velvet glove treatment that they received also concealed a very large iron fist that could used at any time. All classes run in the institute where I taught were captured on video, random communist party staff representative would often just sit in the class to listen to how I delivered the class. Students were questioned about what is going on. During the lunch breaks, a communist party representative would go out of their way to befriend you and ask subtle questions. It was all part of the environment of working in the Chinese regime. You have to treat such things with a degree of humour. Otherwise paranoia could easily set in and your mission would become a self induced nightmare.

For example, one expat teacher was called into an office to explain why they captured her on class video making statement that were deemed to be not in alignment with official Chinese history. Another example is how some expats were careful to warn me about which Chinese staff were Party members who were well known for spying and reporting on private conversations. I was warned by people who had been in China for years that there were two quick ways to be kicked out of the country. One is to talk about politics and the other was to talk about religion. When I complained about the addiction that to mobile phone games that many of students had, it was explained by one of the Chinese teachers that it is understandable considering that everything else in the life decided for them. Where they learn, how they study, who they live with, what they will become and in many cases, who they will marry. The personal agency that we take for granted in the west is never allowed for Chinese students. Either they are treated like sheep who must follow the heard or as soon as they show any form of leadership and initiative, they are recruited to be the communist party representative for the they class. Once in the Party you can never resign. Sadly, it was it was the best and nicest students who ended up organising and recruiting for the communist regime in the future.

Yet this was all tolerable when you know that you can always go home.

It is no secret that Hong Kong has become a major thorn in the side of mainland China. One country, two systems is under increasing attack by the communist rulers. Of greatest concern for Hong Kong locals is a newly proposed law that would permit extradition for violation of mainland laws. I can understand why. The communist party version of the law and the Hong Kong version of the law is one thing. Legal protections in Communist China are non-existent. Even so much as disagreeing with the regime is enough to have you arrested, never to be seen again. The people of Hong Kong have much to fear. The freedoms that they take fore granted will be crushed and their lives put at risk for merely speaking their minds. Cathay Pacific has already been asked to hand over the names of its staff who participated in protests.

This is not some theoretical threat. It is a real possibility. Everyone is watching to see what happens. Will the Chinese send in tanks to crush the rebellion as they did in years ago? Are we about to witness another mass slaughter that will shock the world? No one actually knows yet. However, I do know that this tension will reflect itself in mainland China’s attitude to foreigners. Already an Australian author has been arrested and held for months on trumped up spying charges.

My decision not to go to China this year it looking to be the correct one.

The Rise and and Fall of the Tamil Tigers – Why the book was written

July 15, 2019

The Rise and and Fall of the Tamil Tigers – Why the book was written.

The Rise and Fall of the Tamil Tigers

Why write a book about Sri Lanka and its ethnic civil war when others are doing the same thing?

After I wrote my original foreword for “The Rise and Fall of the Tamil Tigers” I deleted it. I do remember what I wrote, why I wrote it and also why I deleted it. Basically the orginal foreword was about why this book is not like the other being printed at that time. This is fine if the reader’s are familiar with the other books that had come out but no very helpful if they have no idea what you are referring to. From a marketing point of view this is finding a point of difference but from the readers point of view becomes a mish-mash of assumed reference points that they may not know about.

I started putting together the materials for this book soon after the war had concluded in May 2009. I had spent a good deal of time and energy reporting the the final stages of the war on a blog site that I previously ran. Back then, much of the material I publish was based upon the current news reports and direct information that I was receiving from my contacts in Sri Lanka. In fact many people were thanking me for objectively clarifying the details of conflict as it happened. The mainstream news was all over the place when it came to reporting the events of the Sri Lankan Civil War. Some were star struck by the Tamil Tiger claims of genocide, whilst others acted like PR agents for the terrorist organisation. Even worse, were a number of terrorist members who fronted the media with fictional accounts of the bloody conflict and why the LTTE terrorist organization deserved to win. None of this stopped after the war finished. Seperating fact from fiction it hard. Seperating partisan reporting from objective reporting is even harder. Perticularly if you do not know who the partisans are and what agenda they are trying to push. But letting destructive myths stand in place of what actually happen…? Who does that benefit?

Other writings purport to be the authoritative version of what happened in the war. There are some that have been written by Sri Lankan millitary officers, soldiers, diplomats, government agents, that can vary between being a personal story to self promotional boasting, to even down right partisan propaganda. Even the winning side of a conflict can be populated with people who have axes to grind. The losing side? Some people who should know better are still trying to win a war that is lost. Some people are still pumping out hardcore propaganda with the hope that they can do as much damage as possible. Others seem to think that they just have to raise enough money for weapons, recruit enough cadres, rage loudly and the war can be restarted. This is a recipe for death.

It may surprise the reader that in 2006 I was invited to participate in Sri Lankan Government sponsored peace meetings in Australia. This was due my knowledge and connections with both the Sri Lankan and Australian communities. The initial meeting included: a very well know academic at Deakin University; members of the various Sri Lankan communities; including representatives of the Tamil communities; retired UN officials and even LTTE representatives. Believe it not, I was the one who wrote the minutes for the meeting. Whether people wish to believe this is true or not is immaterial as I still have all the email correspondence stored for future reference. Saddly, future meetings were abandoned after someone (an attending journalist) decided to use the opportunity to attack the academic as being an LTTE mouthpiece.

A close friend, now deceased, had written about the treatment of IDPs (Internal Displaced Persons) ie: war refugees for those who find the term too vague. He was critical of the how the government was managing the situation and suggested solutions. For his efforts he was falsely accused of being a Tamil Tiger. Rightly, the Sri Lankan Government held him in such high esteem that he was invited to inspect the IDP camps. It is his testimony that I trust more than those of partisan media operatives. What I should also mention is that this man was a Tamil who grew up in Jaffna.

There are several people who have dominated the media narrative since the end of the Sri Lankan Civil War. One of these people is Gordon Weiss who strayed from his UN mission to become and active player in Sri Lankan politics. Why he did this is anyone’s guess. Yet his habit of making wild claims about the war situation was one of the most unhelpful things that ever did. So much so that the UN mission in Sri Lanka had to publish retraction on several occassions. When he left the UN his reputation was so damaged that they put out a press release to distance themselves from his statements. It was after this that he decided to write a book about the war and use the accusation that 40,000 civilians had been massacred by the Sri Lankan forces to promote the book. When his polemic called “The Cage” was printed the figure of 40,000 magically dropped to 10,000. Yet some people in the media still use this man and his discredited figures as an authority on the conflict.

There is no shortage of controversial editorials from people who want the LTTE to absolved of any wrong doing. The problem is that many whitewash over things like suicide bombers and child soldiers.

“The Rise and Fall of the Tamil Tigers” does not pull its punches in the examination of the Sri Lankan Civil War. It is not a polemic of how wonderful and glorious the Sri Lankan Government is. In fact it explains out a good many mistakes and cost decision that both sides made during in the war. There is more to this conflict than who wins the propaganda war.

For people who want to believe that the LTTE were some kind of downtrodden protector of the Tamil population this book will make hard reading. For those that think that the narrative should claim that the Sri Lankan Government were a bunch of saintly souls will also be disappoint. What really matters is what actually happened and how the war was ended. This is the intent of “The Rise and Fall of the Tamil Tigers”. To explain what happened in the war and how it came to pass.

Warped Logic – Infanticide Good, ProLife Bad

July 13, 2019

Warped Logic – Infanticide Good, ProLife Bad

Extreme Ideologues are often the worst people that ever managed to fall on to the Earth.  The spend time convincing themselves that they are all wise and knowing because they happen to have chosen a side in a controversial battle.  Then as if by some ordained power, their entire world view is beyond reproach and as a result, they are also beyond reproach.  They become the new religious fanatics when deeming that membership of guarantees salvation.  Not tradition religious salvation mind you, where you are spirited off to heaven as soon as you expire, but secular salvation where you are considered to be an enlightened one.  By merely subscribing to the ideology you have achieved the Nirvana of “wokeness” and “allyship”.

Who created this?  The keepers of the ideology did so many years ago when they shifted from espousing a list of grievances to promoting a whole world view of what they believe. So far so good, as long as your ideology is benign.  But many, far too many, suffer from the premise that their ideology is the one true ideology and anything that counters it is pure heresy.  And what do these ideologues do with their heretics? What part of their plan allows people to agree to disagree? Do they have a list of enemies that must be vanquished at all costs?  Do they believe that subscription to the ideology requires any kind of free will and consent? Or do they think that every mind must accept their manifesto by force if necessary?  Are we even able to question the dangers that the ideology poses?

Here we have the ideological questions that should have been put to the so-called “pro-choice” ideologues.  The questions about danger being the most significant.  What are they being pro-choice about?

An unchallenged ideological push into a culture will never stop until it` either fulfils its dreams or implodes under the gravity of its own contradictions.  As consoling that it may be to realise that many evil ideologies will destroy themselves, they can do enormous damage before this happens. 100 million people who died as a result of communism is just a sample of what can happen.  Why did it end up at this point?  Because the killing of some innocent human beings became excusable. Once that starts, the death lists are inevitable. The ideologically possessed become the footsoldiers who unquestioningly carry out the death sentences.  Sometimes because were following the orders or wishes of their masters. Sometimes they jump the gun and kill innocents in order to prove their worthiness.  Sometimes they harbour deep desires to kill another human that they find the ideology that gives them permission to do so.

When someone goes on public record to promote infanticide do they know that most people would recoil in horror at it?  Chances are they do but feel secure enough in their station in life go ahead.  They may be fully aware that the vast majority of people see their “great proposal” as some kind of horror that no sane person should ever entertain.  They may know, but they just don’t care.  Their ideological core, which is the modern replacement of conscience, leaves them with feelings of purity and superiority.  They can hide reality in euphemisms and drown out uncomfortable questions with a barrage of ideological talking points to filibuster the time.  More comforting to the ideologue is the support that they will receive from their fellow ideologues and allies for the cause of infanticide.

It seems that Lulu takes a dim view of unprofessional journalists like Sam Varghes blatant attempt to make false statements.

Special thanks to Lulu and their associated publishers for their professionalism in dealing with a blatant attempt to have my censored out of existence.
