12 Things You Might Not Know About North Korea

UPDATE:
North Korea is threatening the United States with a nuclear assault on the island territory of Guam, as it continues to bluster with President Trump and flex its newly developed missile muscles. President Trump has threatened that any military action on any of the U.S. territories or allies will be met with “fire and fury unlike anything has¬†ever been seen before”. Stay tuned.


Check out our videos on this subject:

ORIGINAL POST: March 4, 2016The BBC reported on March 2, 2016, that the United Nations Security Council has unanimously adopted a resolution significantly expanding international sanctions against North Korea. Correspondents say the new measures amount to some of the toughest against North Korea in two decades. The vote is in response to North Korea’s nuclear test last month.

We thought it would be interesting for our readers to learn a few of the more interesting things about North Korea, that we doubt CNN is going to tell you.

(Credit: Vice)Marijuana is completely legal in North Korea. That actually explains a lot. In fact, it’s not even considered a drug in the secretive dictatorship. The Huffington Post reported that defectors, visitors and experts have all testified that North Korea either has no law against the sale and consumption of weed, or it has a law that is largely unenforced. NK NEWS receives regular reports from visitors returning from North Korea, who tell of marijuana plants growing freely along the roadsides, from the northern port town of Chongjin, right down to the streets of Pyongyang, where it is smoked freely.

However, tourism is now sanctioned by leader Kim Jong-un, and they have grand targets to reach out to 1 million people by 2017 and 2 million by 2020. Seems ambitious for a country that treats most travellers like possible terrorists. And the world’s #1 most visited city? Bangkok, Thailand, with 15.98 million visitors, according to the annual listing by Forbes magazine.

James Dresnok, America’s last defector. (Credit: BBC Four)Six American soldiers defected to North Korea in 1962 and have lived there ever since. “I was fed up with my childhood, my marriage, my military life, everything. I was a goner. There’s only one place to go,” said James Dresnok, the last US defector alive in North Korea, who recently spoke to the Guardian newspaper. In August 1962, he stepped into the minefield and crossed over to North Korea.

Eventually, there were four of them: Abshier, Jerry Parrish, Charles Robert Jenkins, and Dresnok. The men lived together and participated in several propaganda efforts on behalf of the North Korean government. They appeared on magazine covers and used loudspeakers to try to persuade more American soldiers at the border to defect. However, at first, they did not wish to remain in North Korea indefinitely. In 1966, the four men tried to leave North Korea by seeking asylum at the Soviet embassy in Pyongyang but were immediately turned over to North Korean authorities by the embassy. Afterwards, Dresnok decided to settle in North Korea and assimilate. He married a couple of times and is currently in failing health.

On January 23, 1968, in international waters more than 15 miles from North Korea, the USS Pueblo, an electronic intelligence ship, was surrounded by sub chasers and torpedo boats, with MiG jets overhead. The sailors on the Pueblo were rounded up and put in prison camps. While the North produced propaganda footage showing fair treatment, the reality was much worse. The crew endured starvation and torture for nearly a year. Eventually, the North Korean government decided to release all crew members. The Pueblo is still held by North Korea and remains the second-oldest commissioned ship in the U.S. Navy.

In 2009, references to Communism were removed from the country’s constitution, and “Juche” became the official state ideology, replacing Marxism‚ÄďLeninism when the country adopted a new constitution in 1972. Created by Kim Il-sung, it states that the Korean masses are the masters of the country’s development, with an emphasis on political, economic and defensive self-sustainability.

The Juche Calendar was introduced in 1997 and is based on Kim Il Sung’s date of birth: April 15, 1912. That year was referred as Juche 1 and the system works forward from there, while it maintains the Gregorian Calendar’s traditional months and the number of days in a month.

In many instances of non-Korean usage, the Juche year is given after the corresponding Gregorian year, i.e. 12 June 2007 (Juche 96). However, most official DPR-Korean sources list the Gregorian year second, as in 12 June Juche 96 (2007).

The leaders of the country aim to prove North Korea’s might through its architecture, most of which is made of bulky concrete. That includes the May Day Stadium, a colossal structure built in 1989 and remodelled in 2014 that seats 150,000 people. It is the largest stadium by capacity in the world. While it hosts some soccer matches and general athletic competitions, May Day’s grandest and most elaborate events are the annual Mass Games (known in Korean as Arirang). They pay tribute to the country’s history, founders, and current leaders through gymnastics and dance performances put on by thousands of participants. On June 13, 2004, the Telegraph reported that, at the end of the 1990s, a plan hatched by a number of Korean army generals was uncovered, and the conspirators arrested, to assassinate Kim Il-Sung. After they were interrogated, the generals were executed in the May Day Stadium. Petrol was poured over them and set alight, burning them alive.

The Telegraph reported in November 2012, North Korean archaeologists claimed to discover a mythical unicorn lair belonging to King Tongmyong, founder of the ancient Korean kingdom. The announcement was made by the History Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences, which reported that the lair was found 220 yards from a temple in Pyongyang. “A rectangular rock carved with words ‘Unicorn Lair’ stands in front of the lair. The carved words are believed to date back to the period of Koryo Kingdom (918-1392),” the report said. “The temple served as a relief palace for King Tongmyong, in which there is the lair of his unicorn.”

As reported in a 2014 New York Post article, according to the Korean government, the village of Kijongdong, located in the North’s half of the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), contains a 200-family collective farm, serviced by a childcare centre, kindergarten, primary and secondary schools, and a hospital. However, observation from the South suggests that it’s actually a ghost town, created to encourage South Korean defection. Until 2004, massive loudspeakers mounted on several of the buildings continuously delivered DPRK propaganda broadcasts relating the North’s virtues in great detail and urging disgruntled soldiers and farmers to simply walk across the border to be received as brothers. Eventually, as its value in inducing defections proved minimal, the content was switched to condemnatory anti-Western speeches, Communist agitprop operas, and patriotic marching music for up to 20 hours a day.

With 105 floors, the Ryugyong Hotel was designed to be the world’s tallest hotel at the end of the 80s, but the construction was halted in 1992 as the country entered a period of economic crisis after the fall of the Soviet Union. Japanese newspapers estimated the cost of the hotel at $750 million, which is 2% of North Korea’s GDP. For over a decade, the unfinished building sat vacant, and without windows, fixtures, or fittings, appearing as a massive concrete shell. In the late 1990s, the European Union Chamber of Commerce in Korea inspected the building and concluded that the structure was “irreparable.”

As of 2013, approximately 70% of the items in the store were produced domestically. The store is one of several official tourist stops in the city. Just one small problem though – in a documentary which aired on PBS’ Frontline, Secret State of North Korea, it was reported that the film crew had attended the store, and learned very quickly that NOTHING in it was actually for sale. It was an elaborate smokescreen to billboard the country’s economic strength – but it actually has generally done the exact opposite.

In fact, Pyongyang’s metro network is reportedly the world’s deepest. Started in 1966 as a way to connect top secret military buildings, and built by North Korea concentration camp prisoners, the Pyongyang Metro is 100 meters underground and it takes a couple of minutes to ride the escalator down to the station. The journey is long enough that some commuters sit on the steps — despite the signs asking passengers not to. The underground network has two official lines and 17 stations. However, there are rumours of several other secret stations used by government and military only. Inspired by the grand Moscow Metro, many of the stations have ornate chandeliers and paintings and murals on the walls.

Church Crack Down In China

Tuidang.org, the official website of the “Quitting Chinese Communist Party” movement, reported last Sunday, September 25, 2016¬†that the State Council of the People‚Äôs Republic of China has drafted a new set of religious restrictions, to be officially enacted in early October. The restrictions aim to suppress all unofficial religious activities, including breaking up Christian house churches, silencing Tibetan and Xinjiang separatists and undermining the Vatican‚Äôs influence on Chinese Catholics.

If one looks at Liberal mainline denominations within the Christian Church in North America today, they could be forgiven for thinking that the Church around the world is weak, compromising, and has lost influence on society.

Yet across the globe, the explosive growth of the Church is astonishing –¬†in fact, according to the Pew Research Center survey in 2011, there were 2.18 billion Christians around the world in 2010, nearly four times as many as were recorded 100 years ago. ¬†In 2015,¬†Pew Research also¬†estimated¬†that in the next 35 years (by 2050),¬†the Christian population is expected to be 2.9 billion, a stunning growth of more than 700 million people.¬†Most of this growth can be seen in¬†Protestant churches, which grew three times faster than the world’s population, and twice as fast as Islam.

There are two countries specifically where Church growth is so tremendous, they represent the highest concentration of Christian believers in world history  Рin India and China.

On March 26, 2016, as Easter celebrations were beginning across the globe, the BBC reported that for the first time since the Communist revolution in China in 1949, there are now more Christians in China than Communist Party members.

While they estimate that there are more than 100 million Christians in China,¬†Charisma magazine states the number as high as 140 million people, with another 70 million in India. ¬†Those national congregations are now growing so quickly, it is believed that those two countries alone will have 330 million Christians in the next 30 years. Friends, that’s the entire population of the United States, including children.

We rejoice in this miraculous revival taking place around the world. ¬†But dark clouds now are gathering in China, and the Church there may soon face some of it’s darkest days. ¬†Some strong indicators:

  • The New York Times reported on February 26 that at¬†the beginning of the year, the government ordered the removal of crosses from Churches, taking away over 1,200 to date.¬† ¬†One pastor tried to block the removal of the Cross from his church, and he was arrested, tried, convicted and is serving 14 years in prison.
  • nanjing-union-theological-seminaryIn 1981, the government mandated that the Nanjing Union Theological Seminary be the only seminary in the entire nation that is allowed to train future pastors – after they first closed 11 other seminaries and merged them together. ¬†As of 2012, the Seminary had only 280 students and annually graduates 70, which is about 1 for every 2 million of China’s Christians. ¬†America has approximately 1 million ministers – 1 for every 330 people.
  • What it failed to destroy, the Communist Party still wants to control. So, an officially atheist government effectively runs its own churches and controls the appointment of its own priests.

At the end of January 2016, the pastor of China‚Äôs largest Protestant church, ‚ÄúJoseph‚ÄĚ Gu was arrested after he publicly protested the government‚Äôs campaign to remove crosses from churches. ¬†During this same time, his wife and several other family members went missing, yet to be heard from again.

Though the government claimed he was detained for ‚Äúsuspicions of economic issues, including embezzling money,‚ÄĚ human rights advocates say Gu‚Äôs detention is part of a larger movement by China‚Äôs communist government to persecute Christian leaders who they perceive as a threat to the government’s power. ¬†Pastor Gu¬†He will be the highest-ranking national church leader arrested since the Cultural Revolution.

Now, in this announcement today, authorities released the Revised Draft of Regulations on Religious Affairs (To Be Approved) to the public to gather opinion. The draft will stop accepting suggestions on Oct. 7, at which point the Council will formally bring the document into effect. ¬†Currently the draft, based on the previous Regulations on Religious Affairs, contains nine chapters and 74 articles. Some of the proposed articles include prohibitions on ‚Äúorganizing citizens to attend religious trainings, conferences and activities abroad,‚ÄĚ ‚Äúpreaching, organizing religious activities, and establishing religious institutions or religious sites at schools,‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúproviding religious services through the internet.‚ÄĚ

Revisions to the Regulations on Religious Affairs occur approximately every ten years, with new revisions appearing in both 1995 and 2006.

‚ÄúStudying the newly revised Regulations on Religious Affairs, it is evident that the Party wants to take charge of religion,‚ÄĚ a pastor named Zhou said. ‚ÄúThe government wants to control everything, even the smallest aspects. One characteristic of this draft is the empowerment of local government bodies all the way down to the communities. This revision will further reduce the possibility of loosening religious control in China. It is becoming impossible.‚ÄĚ

Gao Baosheng, the pastor of a U.S.-based Chinese church, wrote an article on the new revisions, titled, ‚ÄúThe Alarming Changes in the Revised Draft of Regulations on Religious Freedom,‚ÄĚ in which he stated: ‚ÄúWe can see that the government is clenching tighter and tighter on Christianity, Catholicism, Buddhism and Islam. The laws are becoming more and more specific and detailed when suppressing Christian family churches [Editor‚Äôs note: ‚ÄúFamily church‚ÄĚ is another way of translating the word ‚Äúhouse church.‚ÄĚ],¬†Catholicism, and all other underground religions. The revisions provide a powerful legal base for future suppression. The conditions of religious freedom in China are worsened for them. This draft will bring upon a religious winter so harsh that we must seek guidance from God.‚ÄĚ

Gao also said he believes the government ‚Äúseeking public opinion‚ÄĚ is nothing more than formality

‚ÄúOverall,‚ÄĚ Gao said, ‚Äúthe Revised Draft of Regulations on Religious Affairs is [Chinese President] Xi Jinping‚Äôs attempt to further manage and suppress religions by taking advantage of the laws. By observing these changes in the Draft, we can tell that the government is imposing more control on major religions.‚ÄĚ

May God protect the Church in China.

America’s Glory Days: Distant Memories?

by Calling Out Community, Posted July 4, 2015

FireworksOn this July 4, I wanted for a moment to take America back to a July 4th celebration of yesteryear, to remind people again of how great America was Рin a powerful speech from President Ronald Reagan in 1986, as he rededicated the renovated Statue of Liberty, he spoke of an America that seems like a memory today.  I pray it is an encouragement or incentive for Americans to wake up, before this nation, possibly the greatest and most influential nation in world history, collapses and crumbles from within.

America is in serious trouble, and¬†I believe that, without the grace of God and a change in the heart and mindset of Americans – this shining light on a hill can and will be snuffed out. ¬†America is no longer “in danger”, she is in a coma on life support. ¬†The sooner Americans face the fact that this nation is desperately ill and needs serious attention – and unless she elects the proper leadership to bring what is needed to bring America back – this nation as we know it will pass away. ¬†Only fools, our enemies and those people who are not students of history believe America is doing ok, that she is invincible, that she has unlimited lives.

They thought the same way in Rome millennia ago.¬† It was the cultural, financial, military and political capital of the world – perhaps even more so than America is today.¬† Rome today is dirty street, crumbling buildings constructed thousands of years ago, postcards of a distant ideal that fell to internal corruption, not external enemies.¬† Rome’s biggest enemy was herself, and she eventually committed slow suicide.

National-DebtThe socialist, left-wing administration of Barack Obama has financially decimated the once strong and proud America Рhis addition to the National debt ($13 trillion and rising by $2 billion a day) being equivalent to that of all of the previous 43 Presidents put together.  He stated at the University of Wisconsin on July 1, 2015:

And the unemployment rate is now down to 5.3 percent. (Applause.) Keep in mind, when I came into office it was hovering around 10 percent. All told, we‚Äôve now seen 64 straight months of private sector job growth, which is a new record ‚ÄĒ (applause) ‚ÄĒ new record ‚ÄĒ 12.8 million new jobs all told

Even the left wing media have called him out on this absolute lie, with Forbes magazine reporting on July 3:

us-unemployment-05-12We are now 29 quarters from the pre-crisis peak and total non-farm labor hours utilized by the US economy are no higher than they were in Q4 2007. In other words, if you use a common unit of measure‚ÄĒ‚Äďlabor hours rather than job slots which treat coal-miners and part-time pizza delivery boys alike‚ÄĒ‚Äďthere have been no new units of employment at all. Our teleprompter reading President is actually tooting his own horn about recycled hours and ‚Äúborn again‚ÄĚ jobs and doesn‚Äôt even know it.

Oh but he does.¬† Obama’s not stupid, he knows exactly what he is doing and what he has done to devastate America.¬† And he doesn’t give a damn.¬† And spreading these kind of lies – continuing to lead America by deceit, knowing a liberal press will never correct him, never challenge him, never seek truth about him – well, he’s just as comfortable here as the President of Russia is today in his job, I’m sure.

The financial crisis in 2009, by the chart above, showed a massive increase in the unemployment rate from 5% to 10% in a year.  According to a July 1, 2013 New York Times article by  Jared Bernstein, a senior fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities in Washington and a former chief economist to Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.,:

…the fact that there‚Äôs still about 12 million unemployed (including four million who‚Äôve been jobless for over half a year) in addition to about eight million involuntary part-timers (who want more hours, and can‚Äôt find them) should give one pause before declaring all clear on the economic front. (emphasis mine)

But according to the unemployment chart above,¬† it’s been getting better right?¬† I mean, you can feel consumer confidence again, can’t you?¬† Me neither.¬† So why do the numbers look so good?

Daniel Amerman, a CFA, looked indepth at the government’s reporting of unemployment figures over the last several years, particularly since the financial crisis, when¬†suddenly the numbers started suspiciously¬†improving under the Obama Administration.¬† His report Making 9 Million Jobless “Vanish”: How The Government Manipulates Unemployment Statistics”¬†states bluntly:

…A¬†detailed look at the government’s own data base shows that about 9 million people without jobs have been removed from the labor force simply by the government defining them as not being in the labor force anymore.¬† Indeed – effectively all of the decreases in unemployment rate percentages since 2009 have come not from new jobs, but through reducing the workforce participation rate so that millions of jobless people are removed from the labor force by definition. (emphasis mine)

th7D0BL0TUObama knows that the jobs lost above are being completed today by people who speak Mandarin.¬† He knows those jobs have been replaced by full-time McJobs at every turn in America at best – but most are part time with no benefits..¬† He doesn’t care that the math doesn’t make sense for the current tax base to keep the same level of schools, hospitals,¬†Universities, roads, etc. funded as before¬† Why should he care?¬† He’s got a guaranteed job that that pays pretty well, free housing and transportation, and powerful friends that will undoubtedly reward him after his second term with some comfy job somewhere.

And sadly, he’s also got about 431 days left in office, as $2 billion a day hit to the U.S. economy, before we finally get rid of this guy, and he retires.

images (1)Maybe in the Kremlin.¬† Maybe in Beijing.¬† But Comrade Obama has been a master at his committed task.¬† Like any good card-carrying Communist boy (as he was in University), he loves the idea of a weak capitalistic America.¬† Americans are just patriotic and decent enough, that they couldn’t believe that they may have elected a fox to run the hen house.¬† TWICE.¬† It will take maybe 50-100 years, if ever, for American to recover from the post-Obama destruction levelled on it financially.¬† My bet is that after he’s left office, he suddenty leaves America too.

Can you see a future for him here?¬† Bush Jr. went back to business.¬† Clinton before him became a powerful speaker and leader of a great Foundation.¬† Bush Sr.¬†did many great charitable works.¬† But can you actually visualize what Obama does after he leaves the White House?¬† I can’t either, and that’s because he was nothing before he came in but a puppet for higher masters.¬† As our enemies gain in strength, and America weakens by the day, one of two logical conclusions must be considered, when we review the national debt, the U.S. job picture, U.S. confidence, the U.S. image around the world:

  • untitledEither Obama has been the most incompetent, idiotic, stupidest, and most mentally challenged President in American history to actually believe he’s done a GOOD job to this point or
  • It’s all part of the game, and the destruction of America being his #1 goal, he is by far the most successful American President in history to complete HIS agenda.

What was his agenda?¬† Let’s take a look:

  • untitledAbortion still kills 1 million babies every year – he increased funding.¬† Since Roe v. Wade came into law in the 1970s, more than 50 million American babies have been aborted – that’s 1.5 times the entire population of Canada today –¬†dead¬†in a garbage bag.
  • Gay marriage is now a reality in every state of the Union.¬† Thank you, Barack.
  • The U.S. economy borders on bankruptcy every budgetary period, and the government has been forced to shut down at least once during his Presidency, because they couldn’t even pay the light bills
  • imageAmerica is borrowing money from countries like China (who alone hold more¬†than $1 trillion of American debt) – and no one seems to be stopping to think about it.¬† Now, even if Communist China were not American’s sworn enemy, they did not hate American so much they started and/or financed both the Korean and Vietnam Wars to fight against American indirectly?¬†¬†Even if we were just friendly rivals on the world stage – would Burger King let McDonald’s own a controlling share of¬†it’s debt?¬† Would Shell Oil’s¬†shareholders¬†allow it to borrow money from Exxon?¬† Yet, Americans have borrowed hundreds of billions of dollars from the very corrupt creatures that stole American jobs and weakened your economy in the first place.¬† Wow, that’s either masterfully done or stupid as hell, I can’t figure out which.¬† China is now so financially powerful that it lost over $3.2 trillion on the stock market recently – and it’s still in business.¬† American still can’t pay it’s phone and power bills unless it prints more money.¬† Something’s a bit remiss, don’t you think?
  • Obama introduced a health care system so confusing, the website and phone lines literally crash for days as Americans tried to find answers about it.¬† It’s so expensive it’s still incalculable how much it costs – ask even a Democratic member of Congress and he won’t have a clue what dollar value to tell you.¬† And I thought the reason for this program was so that the poorest members of America could have coverage too?¬† So why is it that at least 5 million of them didn’t even qualify for it, until was taken to the U.S. Supreme Court to finally prop up this bill – well done Obama.¬† Like any good Democrat, if you can’t get the people and the lawmakers to agree on something for the country, just ram it down their throats with 9 unelected judges.¬†
  • American continues to insult it’s friends around the world, and forges new alliances with sworn enemies.¬† In a 60-day period, America signed an agreement with Iran about its nuclear weapons, a country that even a week ago was still calling America “the Great Satan” and they start up diplomatic relations with Cuba after more than 50 years, announcing it on a Sunday evening to take Americans by surprise.
  • F080724AH02Israel?¬† Obama is no Jew-lover, let’s be clear.¬† In fact,¬†he thinks he’s the closest thing to a Jew that the White House has seen in recent memory.¬† Yet, the U.S.¬†Congress invited the Prime Minister of Israel to speak to a joint session, and not only did that asshole Obama REFUSE to show up, but basically the word went out that none of the Democratic Congressmen should attend either.¬† What an embarrassment your President is to your country.

In a speech days later, Obama stated, however that¬† America is still “the best friend Israel ever had?”¬† LOL.¬† Funny, the Prime Minister of Israel himself stated on July 31, 2015:

Canada is one of Israel‚Äôs closest friends. We deeply appreciate our extensive and deep cooperation with the Canadian government, which has flourished in recent years and of which the free trade agreement is but one example,‚ÄĚ Netanyahu said.

img_2818Oh yes, while that idiot in the White House was insulting the Jewish people and leadership and signing agreements with her mortal enemies, Canada’s leadership was actually busy forging closer ties with Israel than we had before, even strengthening our free trade agreement with Israel to include 7 more areas of our economies.¬† The United States and Israel¬† also has a free trade deal with Israel, signed by President Reagan in 1985 – and never once updated.¬† It’s so old, it doesn’t include intellectual property rights from this thing called the Internet.

Good thing for Israel – they have become a global leader in all things technology-oriented, to the point that the Radio Islam website now declares that the Jews started the Internet in order to spread their influence worldwide.¬† LMAO.¬† Let’s say it is true, what’s the problem?¬† Only¬†anti-Semitic, Jew-hating fanatical goat herders with a Grade 3 education in the desert, who couldn’t turn on a computer to save their lives (but the Taliban wouldn’t let them anyway) would look at this as a bad thing for the world.¬† You know who I’m talking about.

Abandoned houses in Detroit. Credit: Jesda.com

The¬†city of Detroit has become the greatest testament to America’s demise, and this President’s lack of interest in same.¬† Detroit was once the fastest growing city in the entire world in 1950 thanks to the auto industry – and that same auto industry today is also responsible for it becoming the fastest shrinking city in American history.¬† This was the price of the “American Dream” folks – your car companies and other American giants of industry committed high treason by taking over 9 million manufacturing jobs overseas to China, leaving a sea of crisis in its wake.

Nearly 1/3 of the city of Detroit lies in ruins – 100,000 houses in the city currently have been abandoned and taken over by squatters, and over 33% of black men alone in the city are unemployed.¬†¬† Ironically, the fastest growing city in the world today?¬† Chongqing, China, with over 28 million people. Why so ironic?¬† It’s one of Detroit’s “sister cities”, and Detroit today doesn’t even have a Chintown anymore .

What has America done about this crisis of good-paying American jobs?  Where has this President been to help them recover?  Did they have a bailout package for the City and people of Detroit, like they had for the car markers of Detroit?  No, this President turned those great jobs Рhigh taxpayers all Рinto McJobs and then counted them roughly in such a way as to make you think the unemployment rate went DOWN.

It’s time to take seriously the “fringe element” that propose deep and dramatic change for America.¬† It’s possible that they were the ones called of God to lead you into your best days…yet ahead?¬† Or perhaps, to keep you from total ruin.

Cuba Says “NO” to Islam

Islamic IslamRising: Special feature to the Calling Out Community,
Posted June 20, 2015.

download-2Cuba has rejected plans to build a Mosque in the Communist country. Pedro Lazo Torres, the leader of Havana‚Äôs Muslim community, revealed that his joint efforts with Turkey’s Religious Affairs Foundation (TDV) to open a mosque in Havana was rejected.

Torres expressed his dismay at the decision, noting that Russia was granted permission to build an Orthodox church in the country. The BBC reported that Russian Orthodox Church was consecrated on October 20, 2008 in Havana, in a ceremony attended by Cuban President Raul Castro. The church building and consecreation were both seen as political, not religious, however, as Cuba sought to improve ties with Russia, damaged after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

The Catholic Church also announced that it now has permission to build a new 200-seat church in the small isolated town of Sandino, according to reports from CNN. Only with the visit in 1998 of Pope John Paul II to the island did relations between the Cuban government and Catholic Church begin to thaw. Christmas again became a national holiday, and Cubans faced less official discrimination for practicing their faiths. In December 2014, Cuban President Raul Castro thanked Pope Francis for his role in the secret talks that led to a prisoner swap between Cuba and the United States and the start of negotiations to restore full diplomatic relations.

tumblr_lhd9zcXlpF1qg0vvzo1_500Yet to this day, 4,000 Muslims in Cuba still have no official place of worship. For some Muslims in Havana, there is “the Arabian House.” Owned by a wealthy Arab immigrant who has lived in Cuba since the 1940s, it was built based on Andalusian architectural designs. It includes an Arabic museum, an Arabic restaurant, and the place is used by Muslim diplomats for jummah (Friday) prayers, but is off-limits to Muslim converts in Cuba. Outside of the Arab House, private homes are the sole places Muslims can gather for prayer in Cuba.

Over the years, various investors from Qatar to Libya and private organizations such as the Muslim World League, have attempted to supply funding to the Cuban government with the attendant promise to build a public mosque for Muslims to gather at and pray in. However, no attempt has been successful. Cuban Muslims have until now had to make do with performing congregational prayers in Torres’s living room.

 

download-1In April, TDV assistant manager Mustafa Tutkun sought permission to begin work on a mosque for Havana, which was to be designed after the famous Ortakoy mosque in Istanbul. The plan was part of a wider project by the TDV to build mosques for Muslims who live in the Caribbean (in predominantly Christian nations, I might add). A similar project in Haiti is due to be complete by the end of this year.

darlington-cuba-muslims-cnn-640x360But if Muslims want to pray together, they will have to continue to meet in the living room of the Muslim head in Cuba. It’s hard to say I care, or that religious liberties should be allowed for all religions. Christianity has worked hard for years to thaw relations with the government of Cuba, and it’s now working. Islam has proven to be insidious, creates political instability, crime, bloodshed and war. I don’t blame the Cubans for saying “not a chance in Hell”.

Obama Is JEWISH Now?

by Calling Out Community, Posted June 4, 2015

images (1)Now I can die happy. ¬†I’ve officially heard it all.

It’s being¬†reported this week that U.S. President Barack Obama’s top confidant David Axelrod recently described a moment where the president expressed exasperation to him over being derided as anti-Israel by some:

‚ÄúYou know, I think I am the¬†closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office,‚ÄĚ the president claimed, according to Axelrod. ‚ÄúFor people to say that I am anti-Israel, or, even worse, anti-Semitic, it hurts.‚Ä̬†(Emphasis mine)

Wow –¬†now¬†what’s he smoking?

He must be one of those self-loathing closet case Jews that’s embarrassed by his own culture – one of those sons of Abraham, rare though they be, that’s hellbent on praising and openly rewarding every one of his own sworn cultural/racial enemies, while seemingly working hard to ¬†guarantee the simultaneous, complete destruction of his own homeland.

Oh yes, one of those M-O-Ts (members of the 13 Tribes) of Israel. But there are only 12 Tribes, you say?  The 13th Tribe is all in his head.

Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel. He likes ice cream, writing books on terrorism- and being a pain in Obama’s butt.

He must be one of those traitorous “Judas” types that’s embarrassed by strong leadership (like that of his own Prime¬†Minister Benjamin Netanyahu) and would sell him out for a few silver coins. ¬†After all, the man likes¬†pistachio¬†ice cream and speaks perfect English¬† Good lord, he can’t be¬†that¬†trustworthy.

Hassan Rouhani, President of Iran. He likes smiling, collecting religious taxes, nuclear negotiations, and long walks at night - plotting the best way to annihilate Israel.
Hassan Rouhani, President of Iran. He likes smiling, collecting religious taxes, nuclear negotiations, and long walks at night – plotting ways to annihilate Israel.

But the President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani?¬† Now¬†that’s¬†a stand-up guys with some great ideas about the future. And the President’s got some mad phat stylin’…(cough). Sorry, every time I think I can get through that sentence, I gag and throw up in my mouth a little bit.).¬†“I wanna be just like him. ¬†Why can’t my war criminal homeland Israel have leaders like that”, Barack Obamashein often muses to himself.

Oh yes,¬†>maybe one of THOSE Jews.¬†The one that criticize his own government for the “irresponsible killing of innocent civilians”, and feels sorry for the poor Palestinians and their plight, enjoying the moments when he can turn the media darlings into little victims again and again in the press on CNN – his beloved Communist Newspeak Network.

But Rabbi Obamastein must have be praying in the synagogue during every one of the¬†11,000 times¬†that Hamas fired¬†rockets onto his homeland. ¬†Guess that’s possible – though you’d think¬†that much praying¬†might have some positive¬†effect¬†on him after awhile. ¬†Maybe God’s just not listening to him anymore.

I have never in my life understood anti-Semitism. ¬†I could never grasp how children, old women – anyone for that matter – could have become such a disgusting sight –¬†such a threat –¬†to the Nazi butchers of the past generation, that they put millions of these children of ancient Israel to their deaths.

Then I read that Rebbe Obamameister now equates himself with the same Jewish race that he’s been openly betraying and selling out, in favor of Islamic totalitarian wingnuts like those found in Imperialistic Iran.

“Obama thinks he’s like a Jew”. ¬†Oh, so¬†this¬†is what anti-Semitism feels like? ¬†That sick feeling in my stomach like I’m going to vomit but it’s only dry heaves? ¬†No? ¬†It’s that feeling¬†plus pure evil? ¬†Oh ok I….nope sorry I still don’t get it. ¬†the Nazis were all whacked out freaks.

But Obama’s photo (above) wearing¬†a yamulke conjures up some feelings inside me that God himself needs to stomp back down right now. ¬†For me,¬†that¬†image¬†would be the slippery slope to the end of the world as we know it.

imagesListen Abba (Father) Obamagarten. I’ve got a few words for you.

First, I’ll¬†never¬†address¬†you¬†as President directly again, because I respect the position too much and you have completely betrayed it.

You are without a doubt the¬†biggest fraud¬†in American political history. ¬†How a card-carrying, anti-American, anti-capitalistic Marx-and-Mao-loving Communist wingnut actually became President of the last bastion of true liberty, freedom and capitalism in the world, after railing against those very principles all his life – it’s¬†beyond me.

How he duped the American public¬†twice¬†¬†into believing his B.S. on Election Day is incredible. ¬†That he’s had the guts to since spend the last 8 years openly weakening her military, tarnishing her image in foreign embassies worldwide, morally raping¬†her society, and showcasing leadership of the absolute lowest common denominator is just outrageous.

But it’s how Barack “Insane Hussein” Obama managed to¬†financially¬†bankrupt the country – and do it with a smile on his face and a high-5 on the basketball court while the world “admires his groove” –¬†that¬†has brought my true hate-on for him.

But coming back to my original premise for this posting –¬†Obamacares¬†has such¬†“hurt feelings” because he’s so pro-Israeli that¬†now he considers himself on the same level as the children of Israel, the Apple of God’s eye? He thinks he’s like a JEW?

Obama_CommunistRedObamasheister, here’s the reality. Your¬†approval rating is about 45% among Israelis. ¬†The overwhelming majority of ACTUAL Jews know that this president has been probably the least favorable to Israel of any in Israel’s history and especially at this moment when¬†their closest neighbour,¬†Hamas in Palestinian territories, has fired 11,000 rockets into Israeli towns – while Israel is called a “war criminal” in the media when it fights back.

At the same time, Iran has been developing a nuclear missile, which it would love to launch on Israel. ¬†Will we someday see a mushroom cloud over Jerusalem? ¬† Obama rushes to shake Iranian hands and sign deals with them, but¬†is¬†personally hurt¬†when he snubs Israel and we don’t see him as friend of Israel.

IMG_1725Who cares what that traitorous, insidious socialist¬†feels? This jackass betrayed Israel after he first betrayed America, and negotiates with both countries’ mortal enemies. ¬†This is too damn much.

After all, not to sound racist or anti-Semitic (for its meant to be a compliment) but he couldn’t possibly be Jewish….Rabbi Barack Obamastein¬†clearly can’t even balance a check book,¬†not to mention run the world financial system, which Jews are always accused of¬†running¬†so well. ¬†This guy¬†would rob Visa to pay off MasterCard so he can fool around with Amex without Diner’s Club finding out.

Or, as they more succinctly say down South – “that dog don’t hunt“.

As long as he’s still not in jail but in the Oval Office, why don’t Americans encourage Obamaowitz to focus on being the closest thing to a PRESIDENT that he’s ever been (if that’s even possible) and leave being Jewish to the¬†actual Jews?

I am not a Jew, but I have Jewish friends. ¬†I love the Jewish people. ¬†The Jewish race makes consistent, positive contributions in religion, politics, education, business, wealth creation, innovation, technology, sports, agriculture and anything else they touch…

YOU sir, are NO JEW.

Obamaski, why don’t you pick up a book sometime and learn somet… NO not the Karl Marx one. ¬†That one on Jewish hist… no that’s the¬†Communist Manifesto…

(Sigh). Never mind….

Did Comrade Obama Bankrupt America?

The American deadline for filing income tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) expires at midnight today, and I thought it would be a good for Americans to see where their hard-earned money is going.

Into a black hole of debt repayments, so it seems. America is drowning in its national debt, and you can thank none other than the hippest gangsta (tru dat) that’s ever lived in the White House – Barack “Show Me The Money” Obama. ¬†I’m not going to pull any punches here – how this man has not been¬†arrested, tried for high treason and executed by firing squad¬†is beyond me. ¬†Too much you say? Over the top?

Calls for treason charges against Obama have been ridiculed – someday people may change their minds.

A video has surfaced from 1995 from the vault of Cambridge Public Library, where a young, pre-politician Barack Obama was invited to discuss and read from his then-recently-released book Dreams from My Father. ¬†Speaking to the crowd, Obama revealed that a¬†“Frank”, mentioned 23¬†times as having mentored or “schooled” him on how to “get used to white racism”, was¬†Frank Marshall Davis.

Davis carried membership card #47544¬†of the Communist Party USA. According to a¬†Breitbart report, he was also on the federal government’s Security Index during the Cold War era for his extreme politics. The report explains that because Davis was on that list, he¬†would have been “immediately arrested” by the FBI if war broke out between the Soviet Union and America. ¬†Davis‚Äô very large¬†600-page FBI file¬†includes reports that he had been observed repeatedly photographing Hawaiian shorelines and beachfronts with a telescopic lens. There was (and remains) suspicion that he might have been doing so for foreign intelligence‚ÄĒthat is, Soviet intelligence.

Davis¬†edited and wrote for Communist Party-line publications, and in both cities, Barack lived there at one time as well, and may have read the publications some of Davis’ work, such as in the:

    Chicago Star¬†–¬†had a goal to “promote a policy of cooperation and unity between Russia and the United States.” Contributors to the Star¬†were discovered to be¬†secret agents to Stalin‚Äôs Soviet Union. ¬†The paper folded in 1948.

  • Honolulu Record¬†–¬†In 1948, Koji Ariyoshi, a social activist, started¬†this¬†labor-focused newspaper. ¬†Davis¬†moved the column from the defunct¬†Chicago Star here in 1949.

The American Spectator summarised his life in an October 2012 feature article:

He favored Yalta and Red Army takeovers of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, and Central and Eastern Europe. He urged America to dump the ‚Äúfascist‚ÄĚ Chiang Kaishek in support of Mao‚Äôs Red forces. ¬†He wanted Communist takeovers in Korea and Vietnam. He was adamantly, angrily anti-NATO, anti‚ÄďMarshall Plan, anti‚ÄďTruman Doctrine. He argued that the U.S. under President Harry Truman‚ÄĒwhom he portrayed as a fascist, racist, and imperialist‚ÄĒand under secretaries of state George Marshall and Dean Acheson, was handing West Germany back to the Nazis, while Stalin was pursuing ‚Äúdemocracy‚ÄĚ in East Germany and throughout the Communist Bloc. He portrayed America‚Äôs leaders as ‚Äúaching for an excuse to launch a nuclear nightmare of mass murder and extermination‚ÄĚ against the Soviets and the Chinese‚ÄĒ as eager to end all civilization.

Let me reiterate again – the President of the United States of America was personally mentored and “schooled” (Obama’s own words) as a young man by a COMMUNIST. ¬†Was it just a phase? ¬†Nope – Obama’s own book “Dreams From My Fatherstated:

To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and the structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets….We weren‚Äôt indifferent or careless or insecure. We were alienated.

As he began community organising work in Chicago in his young career, a 2006 video has surfaced with now-Senator Obama endorsing socialist Bernie Sanders for Senate. He chose Sanders even over the Democratic candidate.  Sanders later won.

Bankrupting America РWHO FOR?

Knowing what I have just mentioned above, consider the financial facts we face today:

  • On December 31, 2008, as America passed its 232nd birthday and Barack Obama was elected President, the national debt stood at a cumulative¬†$6.369¬†trillion. ¬†Under President George W. Bush, it had grown by $3 trillion – and the left howled in fury. ¬†That’s a lot you say. Terrible. ¬†Horrific. ¬†Yes, it is. But¬†it took 232 years and 43 Presidents, having struggled against life-changing, world-altering events like the¬†American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War, World War I, the¬†Great Depression, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the first Gulf War¬†and now¬†wars in Afghanistan and Iran that are still not over after 13 years, as well as the 2007-2008 global financial crisis, to get there¬†¬†Big time stuff.
  • Yet on¬†March 6, 2015, the debt held by the public had silently slipped past¬†$18¬†trillion, an additional $11.631 trillion since Obama took office 7 years ago.¬†As¬†America’s 44th President, Barack “Benedict Arnold” Obama somehow singularly managed in 7 years to¬†nearly TRIPLE the debt that took the previous 43 Presidents 232 years to build before him, and it continues to grow by¬†$3+ billion per day since the day he started in office. ¬†Who knows where it will finally end by the time of his departure.

Go back to the list of national and international events that America has suffered through again.  Read it slowly and get a sense of the gravity of each event, and what it must have cost America financially:The American Revolution

  • The War of 1812

  • The Civil War

  • World War I

  • The¬†Great Depression

  • World War II

  • The Korean War

  • The Cold War

  • The Vietnam War

  • The first Gulf War

  • The 13+-year of wars in Afghanistan and Iran

  • The 2007-2008 global financial crisis

Again, Barack Hussein Obama has added THREE TIMES MORE to the national debt than all 43 Presidents put together  (dealing with all of these events) did over a 230+ year period.

And what did he spend it on – ¬†– “Obamacare?” ¬†Seriously people,¬†America fought 10 wars¬†and still spent less than this bozo did on a health care insurance program for the less fortunate – a program incidentally which actually initially disqualified¬†nearly 5 million uninsured Americans¬†because they are too poor for Obamacare.

(Credit: http://www.Treasurydirect.gov)

Under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Americans went into about debt of about $220 billion by the end of 1945 (about $2.9 trillion in 2015 dollars) to successfully stave off the Great Depression, then a massive global conflict fighting the Third Reich and the Japanese Empire on two fronts in World War II.  Then America led the charge to rebuild the Europe destroyed by war.

Somehow, someway, this unmitigated JACKASS has spent¬†nearly 4 times¬†that much now on a health insurance program that MILLIONS of people in America aren’t even qualified for – when those¬†very people were the bloody REASON¬†for the program in the first place. ¬†Am I on¬†Candid Camera?

Why aren’t Americans rioting? ¬†Why aren’t they burning his image in effigy? ¬†Why isn’t that jackass in JAIL? ¬†How are they so complacent that they don’t seem to even give a rat’s ass about this?

His health care program that bankrupted the country even has his own NAME on it. ¬†“You want to call it Obamacare ‚ÄĒ¬†that’s okay, because I do care,”¬†Obama said¬†at a 2012 fundraiser.

Oh BARF. ¬†How benevolent his dictatorship has been, and he does “care” alright:

  • Obamacares¬†about radical fundamentalist Islamic states more than America’s only real friend in the Middle East, Israel.
  • Obamacares¬†about continuing to fund the slaughter –¬†sorry, the “termination of pregnancies” – of 1 million American citizens¬†every year.
  • Obamacares¬†about his Marxist, socialist, Communist buddies and beliefs so much he has ensured the total military weakening and financial bankrupting of America, in favor of his communist comrades in China and/or Russia, who could easily sweep into the U.S. anytime.

Maybe that’s why China’s in such a hurry to build those 6 aircraft carriers by 2020, ¬†Strike America while the iron’s hot (and while she’s also BROKE)? ¬†There could not be a bigger national security issue today than the national debt.

The bigger¬†unanswered question in my mind: ¬†“Is¬†Barack Obama doing this on purpose?” ¬†As a socialist/Marxist agitator, with influences from card-carrying Communists about the evils of American capitalism and imperialism, is it possible he could have intentionally done this in order to severely weaken America, and either prepare her for invasion, or make her so weak, she can no longer be the world’s police force anymore?

(Credit: Reuters)

This would mean that runaway dictatorships like Russia and China, increasing their arms budgets so dramatically in the last decade (and with so little justification of late for doing so) would have no one to stop their plans for imperialistic expansion.  Sounds like Japan in December 1941.

In 2014, the Chinese government released its official defence spending at 808.23 billion yuan ($131.57 billion), an increase from the previous year of 12.2%. ¬†They have announced a further¬†10% increase this year¬†2015. This makes China’s military budget the second-largest in the world behind the US.

Or even worse, what if their plans were to attack America some day….separately or (God forbid) together? ¬†China is being accused just this week of stealing possibly millions of data files of US. government workers. ¬†What on earth would they want that information for?

This story isn’t over – it may not really have even started yet.
