The attacks on capitalism from the Democrats under Obama have been brutal to say the least, and that impetus has extended deep into the ranks of a now predominantly Socialist Democrat Party.
Obama's takeover of US medical care and his promises of "Transforming America," have slowly been implemented under this government regime, regulation after regulation by slow evolution.
Now, we see radical Islam adopting two basic tenets of the US Democrat Party, which constantly defends Islam along with its failed President.
They seek an authoritarian New World Order and an end to capitalism as we know it. The pieces on the board appear to be lining up quite formidably now.....

THE Australian head of radical Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir last night called for a “new world order”, condemning capitalism and the international anti-terror campaign in Syria.
Pushing ahead with a political rally in Sydney’s west despite Tony Abbott this week suggesting he would consider outlawing the group under new anti-terror laws, Ismail Alwahwah told an audience of about 150 people he was willing to “sacrifice everything” for the groups aims.
Among the crowd at the Lakemba public lecture at which men were at the front, women at the back — and behind a curtain during prayers — a member of a group called the Socialist Equality Party passed out flyers condemning airstrikes in Syria and Iraq as a US-led campaign for “oil”.
Hizb ut-Tahrir calls for the imposition of Sharia to replace the “corrupt society” of Western countries.
Mr Alwahwah said Western countries had been responsible for millions of Muslim deaths.
“You send troops to the middle east to implement democracy,” he said. “In the future we send our troops to Australia, to France, to Germany. “No one can get rid of us, we are here, we are a nation.’’
Mr Alwahwah repeatedly declined to comment directly when asked by non-Muslim Alison Beverege what the penalty would be for not following Islam under his ideal Sharia rule.
The group’s Australian website says it seeks to “change the situation of the corrupt society so that it is transformed into an Islamic society”.
“It aims to do this by firstly changing the society’s existing thoughts to Islamic thoughts so that such thoughts become the public opinion among the people, who are then driven to implement and act upon them,” the site says.
The group has published on its website a video discussing the proposed terror laws to viewers, who find the issue “overwhelming and confusing”. The well-produced video condemns Muslim leaders for meeting and consulting with the federal government.
“This makes it easier for the government to sell these measures and implement them because the policy is for the community to police itself by so-called moderates countering so-called radicals,” it says.
“This shows why it is important that Muslim leaders do not take part in such meetings.’’
Father David Smith of the Holy Trinity Church in Dulwich Hill was at last night’s meeting, saying he attended “because I might learn something … I’ve been trying to build some bridges with the Muslim community, meet some people. You’ve got to do it. Things are getting worse.’’
Hizb ut-Tahrir made headlines this week when spokesman Wassim Doureihi appeared on ABC’s Lateline and continually refused to condemn terrorist group Islamic State despite repeated questioning from the interviewer.

Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly said that if and when the Ebola virus escapes its containment in West Africa, infected people may flee those countries and spread the disease to Central and South America.
Last week, Kelly said that if such a migration occurs, it could cause “mass migration into the United States” of those seeking treatment,CNS News reported Monday.
“If it breaks out, it’s literally, ‘Katie bar the door,’ and there will be mass migration into the United States,” Kelly said in remarks to the National Defense University on Tuesday. “They will run away from Ebola, or if they suspect they are infected, they will try to get to the United States for treatment.
“The potential spread of Ebola into Central and Southern America is a real possibility,” the article written about the general’s speech and posted on the Department of Defense website on Wednesday stated.
Kelly also said that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that 1.4 million people could be infected with Ebola by the end of the year, with 62 percent of those dying from the disease.
“It will cause panic, and people will flee the region,” Kelly said. With the criminal networks that already exist in Central and South America, Kelly said there could be transnational groups smuggling in people infected with Ebola, making countries like Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador especially susceptible to an outbreak.

The Defense Department sees global warming as a challenge that "poses immediate risks" to national security, rather than one that will rear its head only in the future.
This shift in thinking comes as the sprawling department puts in place a wide range of measures to ensure that its bases do not sink below the sea as the oceans rise, that its weapons systems still work in a variety of extreme weather conditions, and that it is prepared to deal with increased demands for humanitarian assistance and regional instability.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel unveiled the department's "2014 Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap" in a speech at a regional defense ministers meeting in Peru on Monday.
"The loss of glaciers will strain water supplies in several areas of our hemisphere," Hagel said. "Destruction and devastation from hurricanes can sow the seeds for instability. Droughts and crop failures can leave millions of people without any lifeline, and trigger waves of mass migration."
We have already seen these events unfold in other regions of the world, and there are worrying signs that climate change will create serious risks to stability in our own hemisphere. Two of the worst droughts in the Americas have occurred in the past ten years … droughts that used to occur once a century.
The roadmap outlines the many ways in which climate change is already affecting the U.S. military, from increased flooding at the massive Navy and Air Force bases in the Hampton Roads, Virginia, area to melting permafrost underneath military training grounds in Alaska.
The military is completing a survey to assess the vulnerability of more than 7,000 military bases and other facilities, including more rigorous studies of bases that are considered to be at high risk from sea level rise. In the Hampton Roads area, for example, sea level is expected to rise by at least 1.5 feet by 2050, making storm surge flooding far more routine and damaging.
An analysis by the science research and journalism organization Climate Central found that, in the Hampton Roads area, there is a 100% likelihood of a flood reaching or exceeding five feet above the high tide line by 2070. This scenario would put nearly half of Joint Base Langley-Eustis under water. That base is home to a squadron of expensive F-22 fighter jets.
According to the group's report, sea level rise along coastal Virginia could amount to between four and nearly five feet by 2100.
"In our defense strategy, we refer to climate change as a 'threat multiplier' because it has the potential to exacerbate many of the challenges we are dealing with today — from infectious disease to terrorism.
We are already beginning to see some of these impacts," Hagel wrote in the forward to the report, which was also published as a blog post on the White House website. "A changing climate will have real impacts on our military and the way it executes its missions."
In the report, Hagel references the political controversy surrounding climate science, with many Republicans in Congress who don't recognize the basic scientific link between manmade greenhouse gas emissions and global warming. "Politics or ideology must not get in the way of sound planning," he says.
Our armed forces must prepare for a future with a wide spectrum of possible threats, weighing risks and probabilities to ensure that we will continue to keep our country secure. By taking a proactive, flexible approach to assessment, analysis and adaptation, the Defense Department will keep pace with a changing climate, minimize its impacts on our missions, and continue to protect our national security.
Many of the vulnerabilities discussed in the roadmap have been known for some time, since reports such as the Quadrennial Defense Review have addressed climate change's potential impacts on military operations and readiness before.
What is unique in this report, however, is that it represents a tactical shift for the Pentagon, away from a long-term planning perspective on climate change, and toward one that also recognizes that climate change impacts, from extreme weather events like heat waves to sea level rise, are already affecting military readiness and mission demands.
While the military has long considered climate change to be a "threat multiplier" that is likely to drag the U.S. into a greater number of rapid humanitarian relief operations and weaken already fragile governments, the new report indicates that the Pentagon is also concerned about its impacts on the readiness of U.S. forces and changing requirements for new and expensive weapons systems.
The roadmap even notes the possibility that climate change, by altering the distribution of freshwater resources around the world, could make it more difficult for the military to ensure its personnel have adequate food and water, both in times of peace and war.
Although scientists have not yet firmly established a climate change connection to the ongoing California drought, it has already affected military training operations by increasing the number of high fire risk days, as well as excessive heat days, at military bases in the state. California is having its warmest year on record so far, after having its driest year.
Hagel's speech also looked forward to the next round of U.N.-sponsored climate treaty talks, which will take place in Lima, Peru in December. "Defense leaders must be part of this global discussion," Hagel said.
In an interview with Mashable on October 9, Manuel Pulgar-Vidal, Peru's environment minister and the president of the upcoming climate talks, said a key goal of the negotiations will be to emerge with a draft global climate agreement. Without that, he said, “we are going to create a lot of frustration.”
The Lima talks will be followed by a high stakes round of negotiations in Paris in 2015, at which time a new treaty is supposed to be signed and slated to go into effect by 2020.

A recent graduate from a Canadian Christian University who applied for a job with a Norwegian wilderness tourism company got the shock of her life when she was "attacked" for her religion in a series of emails in which Mary, the mother of Jesus, is called a "whore" and Jesus is threatened with sodomy.
The graduate, Bethany Paquette, who attended Trinity Western University, said her application was rejected by Amaruk Wilderness Corp. because of her faith. And she provided the series of testy and, at times, obscene emails to prove it, according to CBC.
Amaruk Company website
Amaruk notes the company's website specializes in private guiding, highlighted as "custom expeditions throughout the world for private clients." The firm also "offers wilderness training, support, and logistics, as well as consulting services, to individuals, corporations, and governments," among other services.
"It did really hurt me and I did feel really attacked on the basis that I'm a Christian," Paquette told CBC.
Paquette, who's an experienced river rafting guide, has filed a complaint with the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal in Canada over the rejection.
After applying to be an assistant guide intern with Amaruk, Olaf Amundsen, the company's hiring manager, replied with a rejection email in which he points out that her association with Trinity Western University, which opposes homosexuality, disqualified her from the job.
"I do not understand the purpose of your application considering you do not meet the minimum requirements that are clearly outlined on our website," he began.
"Additionally, considering you were involved with Trinity Western University, I should mention that, unlike Trinity Western University, we embrace diversity, and the right of people to sleep with or marry whoever they want, and this is reflected within some of our staff and management," he continued....

What we are seeing, at present, is exactly what Hitler tried to perpetrate from 1933 and onward, until his ultimate defeat.
Only this time, it's both the Infidels and the Jews, rather than just the Jews.
The interesting thing here, is how Obama's war on ISIS has been nothing but a series of pin-prick wag-the -dog attacks which have achieved little if anything in discouraging the demonic enemy.
Indeed, A small force of Islamic extremists in January 2014, has now become a large force in October 2014, which has taken over much of both Iraq and Syria and will soon be threatening Europe, in addition to the entire Mideast.
Obama's legacy, it would seem, is now running along the same lines as the ever denigrated Prime Minister of England, Neville Chamberlain, who stated of Hitler before his invasion began:
"Peace for Our Time"
Was Obama's statement not, in essence, the same play but with different words?
"We are not at war with Islam"
The question will soon become, "But at what cost?"
We'll soon be finding out.....
