Is the American Tea Party a radical Islamist front?

More than one Tea Party candidate has been claiming that there is no separation of church and state. At first this sounds good. Or does it?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Let's zoom in to the relevant part:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof

Do you see it? Right there. HERE: "Congress"

See any mention of the President? I don't. See how it all fits together?

Obama becomes President and his Muslim background is used to rally Christian dissent. Christians who unwisely attempt to ignore the first amendment, thinking that they will be able to reestablish Christianity. But they can't, because they're all going to Congress from the 2010 elections and Congress can't do anything. But the Muslim who triggered the resistance: President until after the 2012 elections, at the soonest. That's a two year frame for him to pass his own religion.

I'll make it simple: the first amendment is all that protects American from Sharia law and the Tea Party is attempting to destroy that. It doesn't take much to see the connections here. Here, I'll give you a nice direct chain.
Tea Party
News Corp
Al-Waleed bin Talal
Kingdom Foundation
Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow

And let me ask you, who are the Muslim leaders of tomorrow? Depending on how your local elections turn out, they could just be your new senator.

I want to make something clear: the Australian Tea Party is in no way connected to the American Tea Party. We may have once claimed common ideals, but clearly that is over.


  1. The American Tea Party isn't what it used to be either:

  2. I couldn't help but notice this bit in the first link: "Prison is often debated as to whether it's about rehabilitation or punishment - I argue it is neither, it is and should be about removing those who harm others from society until they are no longer a threat to others."
    What's going to cause them to stop being a threat? Prison doesn't just cause time to pass. It tends to harden people, making them worse, so unless there's an active rehabilitation process, we might as well just keep them in there forever.

  3. Yeah, I thought that was an odd stance to take. Perhaps it could be argued that its first and primary function is to keep other people safe, but you're right, without rehab of some sort, there's usually not much safety to be earned in the long run.

    Denninger doesn't always make sense, but he is usually worth reading to get a feel for how the financials are functioning. (Or dysfunctioning, as the case may be.)

  4. The entire idea of a "debt to society" being served in prison makes little sense. It's the equivalent of a bank burning down a foreclosed home: no one wins. Actually worse, since prisons costs society a lot of money as well. I've thought of instead shifting most crimes toward a fine/death system, but that's for a later post, and in a less absurd place.

  5. good article. Come on ~
