According to Barack Obama, Muslim Americans have made many contributions “to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.” That’s only his latest spewing of hot air on the subject. In August of 2010, he said, “American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country.”
Islam 101 claims, “Unquestionably, Muslims have made an impact on the evolution of American society.” Then it provides a long list of items. The only notations from the period of our founding include:
- 1732 Ayyub ibn Sulaiman Jallon, a Muslim slave in Maryland, is set free by James Oglethorpe, founder of Georgia, and provided transportation to England. He arrived home (Boonda, Galumbo) from England in 1735.
- 1790 Moors from Spain are reported living in South Carolina and Florida.
Uhhhhhhhhhhhh … some Muslim guy went home and then some other Muslim guys were maybe living here? Seriously? Those are major contributions to the very fabric of our nation?
The next item is:
- 1807 United States Congress prohibits the importation of slaves into America after Jan. 1, 1808. Despite suppression of the slave trade during the next 60 years, slavery reached its peak between 1840 and 1860. The last Slave ships to be confiscates by the federal government were Wildfire, Storm King, Williams, Erie, Echo, Cora, and Binita, all of which violated the ban on importing slaves.
It’s almost like they want us to believe that Muslims were the ones stopping those rogue slave ships from arriving, not the ones who were, you know, loading them up with slaves in the first place.
Islam, Blacks and African Slavery: The truth about the American Slave trade [9:19]
More “big Muslim contribution” as per Islam 101:
- 1856 The United States cavalry hired a Muslim by the name of Hajji Ali to experiment with raising camels in Arizona.
- 1865 An officer rescues a copy of the Qu’ran from the debris the war had made of the University of Alabama’s libraries.
- 1870 The Reverend Norman, a Methodist missionary, converts to Islam.
- 1893 A wave of Muslim immigrants arrives from the Middle East.
I swear … I am not making this up. The link is down below if you want to check. I googled and found out that the current camel population in the USA is 5,000 imported specimens. Apparently, Hajji the Camel Raising Muslim did not in fact contribute much of anything to America’s agricultural fabric.
The list shows that, in the 20th century, Muslims started founding Muslim associations. How does Muslims doing stuff with and for other Muslims ever contribute squat to America?
- 1919 Albanian Muslims establish two of the first associations for Muslims in the United States.
- 1920 The Red Crescent, a Muslim charity modeled after the International Red Cross, is established in Detroit.
- 1963 The Muslim Students Association (MSA) is established to aid foreign Muslims students attending schools in the United States.
- 1971 The Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers is established.
- 1981 The first American Islamic library is established in Plainfield, Indiana.
- 1982 The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is established in Plainfield, IN. ISNA is now an umbrella organization for many active Islamic groups seeking to further the cause of Islam in the United States.
The book cited in the video “Islam, Blacks and African Slavery” is “The Legacy of Arab-Islam In Africa: A Quest for Inter-religious Dialogue.”
That’s one term collectors of antique and vintage items use to describe some pieces in whatever their field of interest is. It can also be a description of days this poster is not crabby, grumpy, belligerent, whiny, disagreeable, sarcastic, bitchy, obstinate, opinionated, grouchy, bitter or profane. This is one of those rare and seldom seen days. The weekend, once again, was proof there is nothing in this world so important as family. During the past week, RJ’s team took third in their league tournament.
On Saturday, RJ’s big sis, who is 14 going on 30, played in the all-star softball tournament. She played left, third base and pitched an inning. Keep in mind, these girls play fast pitch and some of them can really bring it. Here she is with the game ball.
Yesterday was Tyler’s 7th birthday party. His blood count had been low so he spent most of the week in the hospital. He was released on Friday and had the party yesterday. He has dark circles under his eyes and he’s really, really tired. Nobody should have to go through what he is. But he has a loving support group and he’s unbelievably strong. He has about a million Legos and loves to play with his older cousin, RJ.
It’s things like this that help keep you grounded in reality when every instinct you have is to say: screw it, it’s not worth it. There’s an awful lot we can learn from kids when we take the time to listen.
“IT IS A POVERTY THAT A CHILD MUST DIE SO YOU MAY LIVE AS YOU WISH”….MOTHER THERESA
While we were all enjoying the weekend, our illustrious leader was knocking them dead with his boffo performance in his home country of Kenya. As is the case here, several women reportedly named their latest chirrens Air Force One…. that part is not a joke. Considering the mishmosh of vowels and consonants the modern urban matriarchs hang on their unfortunate future felonious offspring, not really that unusual. One can only imagine what a complete buffoon he appeared to be to the genuine thugs when he started lecturing them about civil rights for queers. They silently bid him to push off home, but keep the foreign aid coming.
Obama in Africa: I’m Proud To Be First Kenyan-American President
NAIROBI, Kenya — President Barack Obama spoke proudly of his Kenyan heritage before a raucous and affectionate crowd in Nairobi on Sunday.
“I am proud to be the first American president to come to Kenya, and of course I’m the first Kenyan-American to be president of the United States,” he told the packed sports hall in Nairobi, to the loud cheers of over 4,500 people in the audience. It was the time he referred to himself as such.

In Kenya, Obama blends blunt messages with warm reflections
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — President Barack Obama mixed blunt messages to Kenya’s leaders on gay rights, corruption and counterterrorism Saturday with warm reflections on his family ties to a nation that considers him a local son.
He foreshadowed a focus on Kenya in his post-White House life, saying, “I’ll be back.”
AVOID THE RUSH…GO NOW
After he is freed from the constraints of the presidency in early 2017, Obama said he hoped to do philanthropic work in Kenya that builds on administrative initiatives. He also promised that he would be joined on a return trip by Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha, who did not travel with the president on this trip.
Obama said that next time he’s back, “I may not be wearing a suit.”

Laughable’: Obama lectures Kenya on corruption — guess who he calls a model of reform?
If nothing else, the presidential trip to Kenya proves one thing: Barack Obama lives in his own sense of reality — where rose colored glasses are a prerequisite.
In addition to ignoring warnings from Kenyan politicians and religious leaders about challenging the African country on gay rights, Obama also lectured his hosts on government corruption.
And he used Chicago as a positive example!

Chicago is cleaned up? Is this a comedy routine???
@RichardGrenell hanging his hopes on the fact they don’t read news stories about Chicago?
Zing! Kenyan president shuts Obama up on gay rights
Despite being warned ahead of time by Kenyan political and religious leaders not to push for gay rights during his trip to the African country, an arrogant President Barack Obama lectured the country anyway.
“When you start treating people differently not because of any harm they are doing to anybody, but because they are different, that’s the path whereby freedoms begin to erode. And bad things happen,” Obama said Saturday at a news conference.
And Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta responded by fully rejecting Obama’s appeal.

Obama pushes for end to crippling crisis in South Sudan
OBAMA IS THE FIRST PHONY AMERICAN PRESIDENT TO VISIT ETHIOPIA
THERE’S PROBABLY A REASON FOR THAT
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) — President Barack Obama launched a personal push for peace in South Sudan on Monday, convening African leaders for urgent talks in neighboring Ethiopia aimed at keeping the world’s newest nation from collapsing amid civil war.
“The possibilities of renewed conflict in a region that has been torn by conflict for so long, and has resulted in so many deaths, is something that requires urgent attention from all of us,” Obama said. “We don’t have a lot of time to wait.”
WAS HE TALKING ABOUT SOUTH SUDAN OR BALTIMORE??
The talks on South Sudan came on the sidelines of Obama’s visit to Ethiopia, his second stop on a trip to East Africa. He urged Ethiopia’s leaders to curb crackdowns on press freedoms and political opposition, warning that failure to do so could upend economic progress in a country seeking to move past years of poverty and famine.
“When all voices are being heard, when people know they are being included in the political process, that makes a country more successful,” Obama said during a news conference with Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn.

Hillary Clinton Operatives Bracing For “Clinton Collapse” by DC Whispers – July 24, 2015
The poor schmucks who signed on to get Hillary the Democratic Party nomination are Not Happy Campers, says DC Whispers. Word is that Shrillary has been living up to her nickname.
When polls showed her sudden drop in several battleground states, she lashed out at her handlers, blamed “unfair media coverage”, then demanded, “Get Amy! Somebody get Amy on this!” (Amy Chozick is a particularly Clinton-friendly reporter at The New York Times.)
DC Whispers sources say, “She still thinks the New York Times is the end-all, be-all regarding media coverage and because they (the Clinton Machine) pretty much control how the Times covers them, she feels she controls her own media destiny and when that doesn’t happen, it infuriates her. She gets very angry very quickly and it’s a particularly aggressive kind of nasty on her part.”
“They know this entire campaign could collapse in a matter of days. Hillary Clinton is not her husband. She’s someone who doesn’t enjoy the work of a long political campaign. She doesn’t trust the process. Actually it goes beyond that – she hates the process. Truth be told, she hates people. Bill enjoyed pressing the flesh. Ok, not the best phrase when applied to him, but he was in his element out there in the midst of the unwashed masses. Hillary on the other hand, she gets this look in her eyes that isn’t so much about pressing the flesh, but wanting to burn it.”
From time to time, Hope n’ Change has endeavored to bring you “Good News Fridays” and failed miserably. Seriously, it’s hard enough to find any good news without also needing the cosmic roulette wheel to have it happen on a Friday. Which is why we’re presenting a genuine good news story today! Specifically, San Francisco has been trying to cope with a serious problem. We’re not referring to their sanctuary city status, their uber-liberal politics, or even all the environmental damage done by Nancy Pelosi when she takes San Francisco soil back to Washington to put in the coffin where she sleeps during the day. No, the problem we’re talking about is whizzing on walls, which apparently creates a massive citywide stench, various health hazards, and slippery puddles. And the solution is brilliant: the city’s public works department is testing pee-resistant paint on the most peed-upon walls, causing the streams to splash back on the perpetrators – thereby protecting property, teaching a valuable civic lesson, and assuring that Youtube will never run out of hilarious videos! But as much as we love this idea, we don’t think the whole “splashback” concept is being taken far enough yet… Why not be more liberal (no pun intended) with its use in San Francisco, so that the officials who release criminals and killers might enjoy a little splashback from the actions of those they set free? You’ll want to read the rest @ http://hopenchangecartoons.blogspot.com/2015/07/splashback.html
