Muslim Mafia Book Review

By Cassandra Effect, January 29, 2010 11:28 pm

Book Review of Muslim Mafia from Cassandra Effect reader, Mark Newton

David Gaubatz, former Agent Air Force Office of Special Investigations and Paul Sperry, author of Infiltration,  combine their efforts to write Muslim Mafia. This book came out in hard back in 2009. I highly recommend this important book to anyone interested in  understanding the Islamic war against the United Stated and rest of the non – Islamic world.
 The authors take you through evidence obtained during an undercover  investigation exposing a very organized conspiracy of CAIR (Counsel American Islamic Relations),  ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and many other front groups  to infiltrate our law enforcement and government agencies with the purpose of undermining our government.  These groups pose as non-radical Muslim organizations but upon closer investigation are funded by null and other radical groups. They are a very organized network of terrorists training and support organizations right here on our own soil. These groups aggressively use our own media for their pro Islamic propaganda and to put a peaceful face on their radical ideology. They also engage in aggressive efforts to silence their critics using political correctness against company, government, and individual targets. Additionally they are fund raising centers sending money raised in the United States to groups around the world known to engage in terrorist activity. These undercover investigators have uncovered documents detailing this highly organized effort to use our own U.S. freedoms, laws,  and political correctness to undermine our nation.  This is a well documented, eye opening, and alarming book definitely worth your time!

The Ultimate Irony from Obama’s State of the Union Speech

By Cassandra Effect, January 28, 2010 9:55 pm

Of all the things that were wrong with Barack Obama’s SOTU speech yesterday, nothing could hold a candle to his tout the Stimulus Bill

“The plan that has made all of this possible, from the tax cuts to the jobs, is the Recovery Act. That’s right — the Recovery Act, also known as the stimulus bill. Economists on the left and the right say this bill has helped save jobs and avert disaster. But you don’t have to take their word for it. Talk to the small business in Phoenix that will triple its work force because of the Recovery Act. Talk to the window manufacturer in Philadelphia who said he used to be skeptical about the Recovery Act, until he had to add two more work shifts just because of the business it created.”

This window company he mentions is Serious Materials, which is a firm which has benefited from focused lobbying to get government money for the Stimulus money for “Weatherization” and   The Weatherization program is a simply a wealth transfer, income qualifed program

The irony is how this relates to Bastiat’s Broken Window Fallacy:  specifically – the tax money being used to “weatherize” homes and offer tax credits on replacement windows.  These tax credit are wealth transfers of taxpayers to individuals who purchase qualifying windows, and then ultimately a wealth transfer to the window company.   All well and good for the window company and the homeowner with the new windows, but a loss of wealth that could have been used for other things by all the other taxpayers.  Thus is the taxes were lowered, then the money may have been used to go out to dinner, buy a new TV, or anything else.   Read below to truly grasp the horror and irony of President Obama’s examples:

I. THE BROKEN WINDOW  

Have you ever witnessed the anger of the good shopkeeper, James B., when his careless son happened to break a square of glass? If you have been present at such a scene, you will most assuredly bear witness to the fact, that every one of the spectators, were there even thirty of them, by common consent apparently, offered the unfortunate owner this invariable consolation – “It is an ill wind that blows nobody good. Everybody must live, and what would become of the glaziers if panes of glass were never broken?”

Now, this form of condolence contains an entire theory, which it will be well to show up in this simple case, seeing that it is precisely the same as that which, unhappily, regulates the greater part of our economical institutions.

Suppose it cost six francs to repair the damage, and you say that the accident brings six francs to the glazier’s trade – that it encourages that trade to the amount of six francs – I grant it; I have not a word to say against it; you reason justly. The glazier comes, performs his task, receives his six francs, rubs his hands, and, in his heart, blesses the careless child. All this is that which is seen.

But if, on the other hand, you come to the conclusion, as is too often the case, that it is a good thing to break windows, that it causes money to circulate, and that the encouragement of industry in general will be the result of it, you will oblige me to call out, “Stop there! your theory is confined to that which is seen; it takes no account of that which is not seen.”

It is not seen that as our shopkeeper has spent six francs upon one thing, he cannot spend them upon another. It is not seen that if he had not had a window to replace, he would, perhaps, have replaced his old shoes, or added another book to his library. In short, he would have employed his six francs in some way, which this accident has prevented.

Let us take a view of industry in general, as affected by this circumstance. The window being broken, the glazier’s trade is encouraged to the amount of six francs; this is that which is seen. If the window had not been broken, the shoemaker’s trade (or some other) would have been encouraged to the amount of six francs; this is that which is not seen.

And if that which is not seen is taken into consideration, because it is a negative fact, as well as that which is seen, because it is a positive fact, it will be understood that neither industry in general, nor the sum total of national labour, is affected, whether windows are broken or not.

Now let us consider James B. himself. In the former supposition, that of the window being broken, he spends six francs, and has neither more nor less than he had before, the enjoyment of a window.

In the second, where we suppose the window not to have been broken, he would have spent six francs on shoes, and would have had at the same time the enjoyment of a pair of shoes and of a window.

Now, as James B. forms a part of society, we must come to the conclusion, that, taking it altogether, and making an estimate of its enjoyments and its labours, it has lost the value of the broken window.

When we arrive at this unexpected conclusion: “Society loses the value of things which are uselessly destroyed;” and we must assent to a maxim which will make the hair of protectionists stand on end – To break, to spoil, to waste, is not to encourage national labour; or, more briefly, “destruction is not profit.”

What will you say, Monsieur Industriel — what will you say, disciples of good M. F. Chamans, who has calculated with so much precision how much trade would gain by the burning of Paris, from the number of houses it would be necessary to rebuild?

I am sorry to disturb these ingenious calculations, as far as their spirit has been introduced into our legislation; but I beg him to begin them again, by taking into the account that which is not seen, and placing it alongside of that which is seen. The reader must take care to remember that there are not two persons only, but three concerned in the little scene which I have submitted to his attention. One of them, James B., represents the consumer, reduced, by an act of destruction, to one enjoyment instead of two. Another under the title of the glazier, shows us the producer, whose trade is encouraged by the accident. The third is the shoemaker (or some other tradesman), whose labour suffers proportionably by the same cause. It is this third person who is always kept in the shade, and who, personating that which is not seen, is a necessary element of the problem. It is he who shows us how absurd it is to think we see a profit in an act of destruction. It is he who will soon teach us that it is not less absurd to see a profit in a restriction, which is, after all, nothing else than a partial destruction. Therefore, if you will only go to the root of all the arguments which are adduced in its favour, all you will find will be the paraphrase of this vulgar saying – What would become of the glaziers, if nobody ever broke windows?

Free Internet Course on American Constitutional Law

By Cassandra Effect, January 11, 2010 8:18 am

U[dated 1/28/10 - Its not free anymore, but is priced at $5 per lecture ($250 for all 10).   Still a good price for what amounts to a college level course on constitutional law.

Henry Holzer, Professor Emeritus at Brooklyn Law School  is offering a FREE on line course on American Constitutional Law!  It starts on the week of January 17th through a ten lecture series he will post on his blog HERE for the next ten weeks.  

Henry is offering a paid option where you can participate via skype live during the lecture - info on the lecture is below and full info can be downloaded HERE  

Like many other Americans, I am deeply concerned about our nation’s future.

 

 

The Weekly Standard of December 21, 2009, reports that "a survey commissioned by the American Revolution Center" found that "when it came to a simple test of knowledge about the founding [of the United States of America], nearly 83 percent of . . . Americans failed.” knowledgeable defense of our founding document to be found anywhere.   
In the face of this woeful ignorance, the Constitution of the United States of America is under an unprecedented attack by Barack Obama and his runaway Democrat Party, aided and abetted by the complicit mainstream media.  

Yet with a few notable exceptions there is hardly any knowledgeable defense of our founding document to be found anywhere.   

Not on radio or television. Not in the press. Not at the grassroots. Certainly not in academia. Nor, sadly, among most Republicans, Conservatives and even Libertarians. Most of the Media’s “instant,” pontificating constitutional experts, especially those on national television, do more harm than good because they spread disinformation that is neither knowledgeable nor principled.While many “tea party” activists and other patriots are valiantly trying to fight for core constitutional values, they’re disarmed because they have been taught little about American constitutional law. The fact is that everyone fighting for America today, in order to defend the Constitution, must know the answers to countless crucial questions.  

 

…  

Those who are committed to fighting for that future must acquire a basic understanding of the Constitution’s origins and birth, its written text, the manner in which it has been deliberately violated, and the consequences of how it has been misinterpreted by collectivists and statists.
