"Learn to Link...or Die"


By Jeffrey A. Tucker

I've held my peace for as long as I can, but there will be no more silence on this critical issue of the day. Here is the bottom line: you need to learn to make a link or you should fall into the grave early.

There is no getting by in life without this skill. It is a bloody outrage that people continue not to know how to do this. And yet it happens all the time. Very intelligent people who are not actually in fact dead get on blogs and forums and paste URLs hoping that they will send people to a particular website but they don't know how to make it active so that someone else can actually click it and go to that website.

Then the administrator of the forum or blog has to go in and fix it, wasting his time. You have tried to help but in fact you are only leaving a path of annoyance everywhere you go.

It's nothing short of incredible if you think about it. In 1995, you can sort of understand the ignorance.

"Why should I learn to make a link. I'll leave that to the 'webmaster'. I'm a ________ (fill in the blank) not an internet geek. It's not my job."

It's been 13 years — nearly a decade and a half — since linking has been part of the functioning of the world and part of daily life generally. There are no excuses left.

Every person who lives and breathes and has use of his or her mental facilities should know how to create a web link. This is increasingly the bare minimum requirement of nearly every desk job on the planet...

Read these simple instructions and learn that skill once and for all!

Do People Secretly Think You Are a Pig?

You don't want to read this article. But you should and must. It contains some dreadful truths that are universal but no one will is willing to talk about them because the subject is so uncomfortable.

I would like to reveal a universal prejudice — it is a cruel and judgmental attitude that is written on the hearts of people in all times and all place — that might very well wreck your life, but which you can deal with rather easily...

Doug Bandow on the Kosovo Debacle

Another Great Clinton Foreign Policy Success

It was never easy to understand why the Clinton administration intervened in Kosovo. The U.S. had not made a habit of deciding which European state was obligated to grant independence to which disaffected minority. For instance, Spain told Basques to stuff it without much comment from Washington. And the U.S. never worried about its allies using brutality against guerrillas--the Turkish campaign against the Kurds destroyed thousands of villages and killed tens of thousands of people, while the U.S. provided Ankara with arms.

However, the prospect of getting involved in a conflict with no conceivable relationship to U.S. interests drew the Clinton administration into the Balkans. So Washington joined with a majority of European states in a policy that could be defined as "the Serbs always lose": Everyone got to secede from Yugoslavia/Serbia, but Serbs could never secede from anyone else, whether Bosnia, Croatia, or Kosovo, irrespective of the principle of ethnic self-determination and threat of human rights violations...

Jihad Watch Commenter Rants on Mohammed

"Cartoons, if they target Islam, can be more hazardous to your health than crossing the mighty U.S. government and its allies"

From the article:

Molly Norris should be given full protection by a U.S. Government determined to defend the freedom of speech against violent jihadist intimidation. Instead, we get yet more dhimmitude. "Leaks OK, but don't cross Islam," by Debra J. Saunders, January 5 (thanks to Twostellas)...

Now for the rant:
Peter Jordan | January 7, 2011 3:40 AM


How exactly does one not insult the highly insultable? How does one exercise the self restraint to not hold up to ridicule the ridiculous?

I call your attention to mohammed (sob), alleged prophet of islam, blasphemer and heretic of Mecca, pirate of the desert and troglodyte. Mohammed ibn Hanzir (with apologies to pigs), bastard scion of Molech and enemy of God and Mankind. Liar, thief and plagiarist of the two great Abrahamic faiths, mohammed the illiterate, apostle of Beelzebub and chief satanist, vomitant of the foolish doctrine quran, a stupid name for a stupid book. Moon worshipper and chief loon, mohammed (may the fleas of a thousand camels infest his scrotum), not fit to herd pigs, or to clean up after dogs, desert whirlwind and unholy pagan, world pest, psychotic misogynist and clitorophobe. Cross-dressing pervert, defender and paragon of paedophilia,zoophilia and coprophilia, savant of all perversions.There is one good thing about mohammed the universal champion of idiots and cretins - he is dead. Dead and now favoured denizen of the inferno, catamite of Satan and keeper of Hell's gates, dispenser of the grapes to torsoless jihadis. And I bet he stank.

Madrassa Pops Up on US Marine Base in Hawaii


by Paul L. Williams, Ph.D.
The Gulen Movement has launched an invasion of Hawaii.

Members of the Islamic movement which seeks to establish a universal caliphate have established their newest charter school on a U.S. Marine base in Kailua (Marine Corps Base Hawaii (MCBH) Kaneohe Bay).

The school, which will be funded by US taxpayers, is called the Mokapu STEM School.

Like the 140 Gulen schools in mainland America, the Mokapu STEM School will be controlled by a board of Turkish administrators, who will indoctrinate students in Turkish culture, religion, and language so that they may play a future part in the restoration of the Ottoman Empire...

Islamist Website Instructs Mujahideen in Using Popular U.S. Web Forums to Foster Anti-War Sentiment among Americans


In the past few months, Islamists engaged in "media jihad" have increased their efforts to expose as broad a Western audience as possible to their jihad films, which purport to document the growing success of the mujahideen in Iraq and Afghanistan. As part of this endeavor, they have posted jihad films on popular free video-sharing websites such as YouTube, LiveLeak, and Google Video, hoping that such films will tip public opinion in the West against the war in Iraq and Afghanistan - thus pressuring Western governments to withdraw their troops from these countries.

As part of the campaign to foster anti-war sentiment among Westerners, and more specifically among Americans, a member of the Al-Mohajroon Islamist website with the username Al-Wathiq Billah instructed mujahideen in how to infiltrate popular American forums and to use them to distribute jihad films and spread disinformation about the war.

The following are excerpts: [1]

"Raiding American Forums is Among the Most Important Means of Obtaining Victory in the Fierce Media War... and of Influencing the Views of the Weak-Minded American"

"There is no doubt, my brothers, that raiding American forums is among the most important means of obtaining victory in the fierce media war... and of influencing the views of the weak-minded American who pays his taxes so they will go to the infidel American army. This American is an idiot and does not [even] know where Iraq is... [It is therefore] mandatory for every electronic mujahid [to engage in this raiding]."

"It is better that you raid non-political forums such as music forums and trivia forums... which American people... favor... Define your target[ed forum]... and get to know it well... Post your contribution and do not get into... futile arguments..."

Indicate You Are an American

"Obviously, you have to register yourself using a purely American name... Choose an icon that indicates that you are an American, and place it next to your nickname [in the forum]."

"In my experience, the areas most visited in American forums... [are titled] 'Random Thoughts' and 'What's going on in your mind?'... [The former] takes priority in the American forums, and is highly popular. You should post your contribution there... This should include films of the mujahideen in Iraq, mujahideen publications in English, and images and films of the Americans' crimes, [such as] killing unarmed civilians in Iraq... etc."

"Invent Stories About American Soldiers You Have [Allegedly] Personally Known"

"Obviously, you should post your contribution... as an American... You should correspond with visitors to this forum, [bringing to their attention] the frustrating situation of their troops in Iraq... You should invent stories about American soldiers you have [allegedly] personally known (as classmates... or members in a club who played baseball and tennis with you) who were drafted to Iraq and then committed suicide while in service by hanging or shooting themselves..."

"Also, write using a sad tone, and tell them that you feel sorry for your [female] neighbor or co-worker who became addicted to alcohol or drugs... because her poor fiance, a former soldier in Iraq, was paralyzed or [because] his legs were amputated... [Use any story] which will break their spirits, oh brave fighter for the sake of God..."

How to Make Americans Feel Frustrated With Their Government

"You should enter into debate or respond only if it is extremely necessary... Your concern should [only] be introducing topics which... will cause [them to feel] frustration and anger towards their government..., which will... render them hostile to Bush... and his Republican Party and make them feel they must vote ton bring the troops back from Iraq as soon as possible."

"Do not... discuss issues pertaining to Arabs or Muslims at all, whether negatively or positively... because this could be a trap for you... In addition, do not ask people to circulate the material [you have posted] in other forums... as these types of requests will expose you..."

Roads from Emmaus: Hussedaag

August 14, 2010 by Fr. Andrew

Some years ago a resident of Emmaus said to the writer in her native dialect [Pennsylvania German], “Heit iss der Hussedaag” (Today is Huss Day). I asked her what that meant. She did not know, but said that they always sowed their turnip seed on that day. Thus did the memory of John Huss, the great pre-Reformation reformer, find a place in our local folklore.
—Preston A. Barba, They Came to Emmaus (1959)

Emmaus residents: Make sure you plant your turnips on July 6, the day Jan Hus was both born and burned at the stake (1373 and 1415, respectively). (Wikipedia claims he was born “ca. 1372″ with no actual date listed. I’m not sure of his source, but I like Barba’s claim that July 6 is also Hus’s birthday.)
