Serving Taquiyya Pie at FAU

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Florida News

Phobia; “a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it.”

Also; “a combining form meaning “fear,” occurring in loan words from Greek, (hydrophobia; on this model, used in the names of mental disorders that have the general sense of “dread of, aversion toward,” that specified by the initial element: agoraphobia.” 

Indeed, it is an interesting word; one which has morphed in its application to suit any agenda driven purpose and is used mostly in an attempt to shed a bad light upon anyone who doesn’t fall in line and agree with the agenda of the person or group who employs it.  All one has to do is attach “phobia” to the end of any word and someone else gets labelled a hater.

One of the biggest and overused examples of this of late is “Islamophobia;” like all other phobias with a special interest group attached to the front, is a word made up by the groups and leftist extremists used to hurl at anyone who dares to shed the light of truth on the topic, (in this case, Islam).  In truth, the tag “phobia” should be replaced with “realism.”  This is especially so given that I don’t know anyone who “fears” Islam or Muslims; extremely ticked off, yes; fear NEVER.

Moving along to the event of Monday, 5/23/16.  

Shame on FAU, and shame on the State of Florida for allowing the 'Muslim Student Association,’ which was founded by and is a tool of the Muslim Brotherhood, to host the completely one-sided “Islamophobia Event” that I witnessed in the Student Union Bldg. on the Boca Raton Campus.

A more apt title for the event might have been along the lines of “anyone that doesn’t see eye to eye with our Muslim dais is a hater,” as that term was used numerous times, and especially by Wilfredo Ruiz; who coincidentally is an Attorney for CAIR, (see below).

The event started a little late, and after some initial sound system problems, the “rules” were given. Essentially, any questions had to be delivered via text message or email, and any outbursts from the gathered audience would be met with removal by police, because the last thing you want at such a venue is free speech.  Besides, that whole First Amendment thing is so 1787.

Before anyone spoke, we were 'softened’ via a propaganda video that would have made Joseph Goebbels blush.  The only thing it didn’t include was a clip of CAIR Leader and now Broward Deputy Sheriff Nezar Hamze helping an old lady cross the street.  

By the way, if you are not familiar with CAIR; it stands for Council on American-Islamic Relations, which sounds very nice until you understand that they are among other things the product of a Hamas-support network in the United State, an un-indicted co-conspirator in the terror-finance trial against the Holy Land Foundation and its former officials.  Additionally, CAIR is listed, along with the Muslim American Society as a Terror Organization by the United Arab Emirates.  In case you are not aware, Hamas is merely another in a long list of off shoots of the Muslim Brotherhood.

To their credit, a couple of people did get up and announce their dismay with the nonsense spewing from the dais; and they promptly removed themselves without police assistance.

The only non-Muslim on the dais was Rabbi Barry Silver of L’Dor Va-Dor in Lake Worth, FL; however he himself being a huge proponent of ‘inter-faith’ dialogue has more than once spoken out against the concerns of citizens who are awakening to what is happening in America and the West with regards to “Islamization” of the culture.  Rabbi Silver gave the longest of the opening remarks and one of those in the audience who had something to say, stood up, called him a “schmuck” and walked out.

During his diatribe, he took text out of context and trashed some of the Old Testament of the Bible, and trashed some of what my Lord and Savior Jesus had to say about defending oneself.  He also said that Islam is the closest thing to Judaism of all religions, which was right about when the “schmuck” comment came.  In fact the only thing he said that made any sense at all to me was that there is a curse over the middle-east caused by the Islamic call to destroy Israel.  How he mostly sides with Muslims knowing their open desire to destroy Israel is mind boggling to me.

For most of the rest of the evening, we heard from the various members of the dais which included Shaikh Shafayat Mohamed, Wilfred Ruiz, Maha El Kolalli, and Deema Gichi; all of whom jumped in to offer their take on various subjects that they associated with “Islamophobia.”

They were all over the place with their rants and largely skirted and downplayed the increasing issues we see around the world and in this country.  Just to name a few things they didn't mention; the unrest throughout Europe; the rampage in the Oklahoma Food Plant; the attempt on Pamela Geller’s life last year in Garland, TX; and so many more.   

At least one on the dais mentioned that only a “few” Muslims do the heinous things we see almost daily. That over-used comment cannot go unanswered by this commentator.  “Few” translates as follows; depending upon which poll one chooses to believe, there are somewhere between a low of 7% to a high of 25% of Muslims worldwide who are of a violent jihadi mindset.  Which means based upon a population of 1.6B, there are between 112M and 400M individuals; but I’ll average it in the middle and use 16% as my multiplier putting the number at ONLY 256M.  No matter which number you look at, it is more than a “few.”  In fact, it is a massive army to be very aware of and concerned about.

Several on the dais also mentioned Donald Trump in a bad light, no doubt due to his statements regarding temporarily banning Muslims from entering the US.  Let me remind the reader that his comments stemmed from the current administration’s desire to allow untold tens of thousands of “unvetted” Muslim “refugees” into the country.  By any measure, there would be no way to vet such a group, and especially given the numbers of potential violent jihadis above.  Since we know for sure some real bad actors will definitely slip in, the analogy of the bowl of candy is perfect; only a "few" pieces of the candy are deadly, how many do you want or would you give to your children...?!   

When moderator Joseph Brownlee did finally open the session to the questions he’d received, the two or three he obviously cherry picked were certainly the most softball inquiries asked and he did not bother to mention that the answers mostly did not address the question at hand.

In fact, when the question of citing the Pledge of Allegiance was brought up; meant as a loyalty question I might add, Mr. Ruiz jumped in citing his service in the military, and then launching into a long tirade which had nothing to do with the question.  Mr. Ruiz also inferred that many Muslims serve protecting those of us asking the questions; and yes many Muslims do serve honorably Mr. Ruiz, but sadly some do not.  For example, Hasan Nidal of Ft. Hood infamy; Hasan Akbar who murdered several of his comrades at Camp Pennsylvania in Kuwait with grenades and a rifle, to name a couple.  Let’s not forget that before his death, Yemeni Cleric Anwar al Awlaqi urged all Muslims serving in the US Army to follow Hasan Nidal’s lead.  

And I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the commentary by FAU Professor and advisor to the Muslim Brotherhood controlled MSA, Bassem Al Halabi, when he endorsed chopping off hands as proper punishment for certain crimes.  You’re probably saying come on, he didn’t say that…?! Yes he did, listen for yourself here.  When this is the sort of academic is allowed to teach our young at FAU and across the nation, I am correct when I often say that we are in grave danger.

If FAU and the State of Florida want to be fair minded, they need to follow this event up with a dais made up of people with opposing views such as Brigitte Gabriel, Frank Gaffney, Tom Trento, Pamela Geller, and Allen West; to name a few.  Maybe Yours Truly or Wild Bill for America could moderate that unlikely event.  Unlikely on two counts; the perfect timing of the end of the school year and FAU has demonstrated its liberal stripes.

Rest assured, the First Amendment would not be stifled, and much more time for a live Q & A session would be allowed.

One final note; on the way out, I noticed a table dedicated to “CAIR” doling out lots of that organization’s literature.  My question about the presence of that group in light of what I shared above is why it should be allowed in the first place, and why one of their lawyers, Mr. Ruiz, was on the dais..?

Southeast Florida Honor Flights WWII Mission needs help

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Florida News

If you live in So. Florida, it is next to impossible that you haven’t heard of “Southeast Florida Honor Flights” whose sole mission has been to reach out to every WWII Veteran possible and get them involved with an Honor Flight.  

The Honor Flights have had a single purpose; to set aside a day several times a year and fly these heroes round trip to DC to visit the WWII Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, and a few other selected sites in DC.  The next such flight is planned for September 19, 2015.  However, there is an urgent need to raise funds for future flights so SEFHF has partnered with Roger Dean Stadium and they are having a movie night on Wednesday, August 26 to show a documentary about the organization and past flights.  To follow that up, Roger Dean Stadium is hosting a “Military Appreciation Night” that same week on Saturday the 29th.  

I won’t mince words; these are both fund-raising events and every donation, small or large, will go a long way to make upcoming trips possible and successful.

Tickets to both events may be purchased at the Southeast Florida Honor Flights site, the Roger Dean Ticket Office, or   Even if you cannot attend these events, purchasing a ticket for posterity and maybe making an extra donation is a great way to say thank to these members of the Greatest Generation.      

The long day starts at 04:30 hours when they all meet at Palm Beach International Airport; some drive, some are bussed under escort by Patriot Guard Riders and Sheriff Deputies.  Once at PBI, they are escorted onto a chartered jet for the ride up.  

They are fed, and escorted the entire day by an assigned guardian.  Along the way they are often greeted by people from Congress and other dignitaries, as well as many passersby during the day.

Once the sites and sights have been seen and the mission is complete, they are flown back on the same jet to PBI.  At that point, unless they’ve somehow been part of one of these events before, they have no idea what awaits them at PBI.

The plane is met on the tarmac and greeted by two Fire Trucks which salute them with a water arch to pass under.  Then, as many as 3000 plus people; from a Scottish Bag-Pipe Ensemble, to Palm Beach County Fire/Rescue, contingents from ROTC groups, Boy Scouts, active Military, and just hundreds of Veterans, civilians and children await them inside the terminal to greet them, cheer them, thank them, offer them flowers, hugs, handshakes, and welcome them home.  I’ve never been to such an event where I didn’t find myself choking back tears.

My friends, for many of these men and women, this is the last great experience of their lives.  

Won’t you please honor them and consider a gift of any amount to help with this mission for our WWII Veterans, and also as SEFHF prepares to begin the next phase of missions to bring our Korean War Veterans up to visit their memorial.

No single group of individuals deserves our respect more than our Military Veterans of all wars.  We at The Patriots Press thank you in advance for your consideration and support.

They gave a badge and a gun to "CAIR"….?!

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Florida News

Did the employment ad read, “Deputy Sheriffs wanted in Broward County, preferential consideration given to candidates known to be connected to and associated with terrorist organizations?”  How many qualified people that can’t say yes to those questions were passed over in favor of Nezar Hamze…?!  

Are we officially living in “Bizarro Land?”  Is Broward County set to become another Dearborn, MI?

When I heard about this the other day, I sort of brushed it off as maybe a rumor, since I have to believe “CAIR” takes good care of its staff given all the money from the terror networks that support them; even the UAE has them listed as “as one of 83 proscribed terrorist organizations.”

By the way, before I go on, if you live in a cave and have never heard of “CAIR,” stop right here and google them before continuing.  You’ll find along with lots of other stuff that they were founded by the Muslim Brotherhood as a front group for Hamas and other terror groups.  

I’m left to wonder if maybe “CAIR” is feeling the pinch of the lower oil prices and has had to cut back on employee pay and perks, because as far as I know Mr. Hamze is still running the show at “CAIR” in So. Florida when he isn’t donning the uniform of a deputy.

Under the best of conditions, which are hard to imagine, I will state that I am dead against muslims being put in any position of authority, be it police or military, because while I totally understand that not all of them are murderous jihadis hell bent on our death and destruction, it is impossible to tell the friend from the foe in most cases.  

Not to mention that the “good guy” of today too often becomes the “radicalized” nut job in the news tomorrow.

I suppose I’ll once again be called "islamophobic," accused of "hate speech" and all the rest because of this article, but I don’t care.  This is about plain old common sense and Nezar Hamze is clearly not the kind of man that should be allowed to be a LEO or member of the military anywhere in the US.  

Given just the surface history I personally know of him, Mr. Hamze should certainly have come under extensive scrutiny when he applied, and been denied.    

As the face and voice for “CAIR” in So. Florida for a long time, he could be found everywhere and anywhere that some rat was being brought to task for malevolent behavior against America.

Whenever a group like Act for America or Pamela Geller was in town, or anyone speaking the truth about islam, Nezar and his group were on hand and tried to shut them down as this example clearly shows.  

When the imam in Margate, FL came under fire for aiding the Pakistani Taliban back in 2011, Mr. Hamze was right there at the mosque fending off reporters and making sure that none of the members of the mosque spoke with any of us.  When challenged to come on no less than two radio shows to plead his case, he ignored those challenges and turned his back on us.  When former Congressman Allen West hosted Town Hall meetings, he would show up to disrupt things and attempt to discredit Mr. West, who always listened patiently before schooling him on reality as this video shows

Let’s not forget that shortly after the Margate mosque debacle, Mr. Hamze did an episode on the very liberal “The Daily Show” where Jon Stewart painted him to look like the guy next door, while attempting to make a good guy running for Congress out to look foolish.  Sadly, in the eyes of many, Mr. Stewart was successful.

How did Hamze pass the background check, oral board inquiry, etc.?  Were those basic due diligence items even performed, or is it that somehow in the land of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, where insane liberalism reigns supreme, that miscreants are given a pass in the name of tolerance?  Perhaps, just as with POTUS, no one bothered to check for fear of being labelled some sort of “phobic” or “hater.”  

Writing for Front Page Mag, Joe Kaufman was correct when he stated; “As Sheriff, Israel has made it a point to reach out to diverse crowds, including those who could be considered enemies of the U.S. and her allies.”

Hiring Hamze clearly flies in the face of what is best for the citizens of Broward County and Florida.  While I would love to see the next sheriff undo the appointment of Hamze, I understand that it doesn’t work like that.  The good news is that the people of Broward County are only stuck with this Sheriff if and until they get some common sense come Election Day; the bad news is they are stuck with Hamze indefinitely because while he should never have been hired, he can’t just be fired because a liberal goon decided to ignore his past.

The bottom line with Deputy Hamze is that a very bad seed with dubious loyalties and history managed to get himself appointed as a LEO, and it is essential that he be monitored by citizens groups and the Law Enforcement Community as a whole.

Birds of a Feather....abandon together

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Florida News

Almost as if they somehow know or sense something we cannot, thousands of birds of many different species suddenly abandoned their nests and eggs, and evacuated their habitat on Seahorse Key back in May.

For right now, this massive and unexpected migration of untold thousands of birds is a mystery.

“SEAHORSE KEY, Fla. (AP) — The din created by thousands of nesting birds is usually the first thing you notice about Seahorse Key, a 150-acre mangrove-covered dune off Florida's Gulf Coast.

But in May, the key fell eerily quiet all at once.

Thousands of little blue herons, roseate spoonbills, snowy egrets, pelicans and other chattering birds were gone. Nests sat empty in trees; eggs broken and scattered on the muddy ground.”
