“Unfortunately, Mullins’ source for the stockholders of the New York Fed could not be verified. He claimed his source was the Federal Reserve Bulletin, although it has never included shareholder information, nor has any other Federal Reserve periodical. It is difficult researching this particular claim because a Federal Reserve Bank is not a publicly traded corporation and is therefore not required by the Securities and Exchange Commission to publish a list of its major shareholders. The question of ownership can still be addressed, however, by examining the legal rules for acquisition of such stock. The Federal Reserve Act requires national banks and participating state banks to purchase shares of their regional Federal Reserve Bank upon joining the System, thereby becoming “member banks” (12 USCA 282). Since the eight banks Mullins named all operate within the New York Federal Reserve district, and are all nationally chartered banks, they are required to be shareholders of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. They are also probably the major shareholders as Mullins claimed.”

I’ve been hearing this stuff for years. I’ve never seen documentation that ‘proves’ it’s the Rothschilds or whomever. Maybe one of the various books on this subject proves it one way or another. It’s been years since I read Devy Kidd’s booklet on the subject. I don’t remember to what level she addresses ownership.
Salafis believe that the Qur’an, the Hadith and the consensus (ijma) of approved scholarship (ulama) along with the understanding of the Salaf us-salih as being sufficient guidance for the Muslim. As the Salafi da’wa is a methodology and not a madh’hab in fiqh (jurisprudence) as commonly misunderstood, Salafis can come from the Maliki, Shafi’i, Hanbali or the Hanafi schools of Sunni fiqh and accept teaching of all four if supported by clear and authenticated evidence from the Sunnah. In the face of clear evidence, be it from Qur’an or Hadeeth, they support scholars’ engagement in ijtihad – if they are qualified – as opposed to total blind imitation (taqlid). Their theological views are based on the Athari creed as opposed to kalam, dialectics or any form of philosophy deemed speculative.
FK – Gee, a religion, and all religions are successful cults, claiming that its religious book is ‘sufficient’ to understanding the world. Imagine that. We are still a very primitive species and we still exist in a very dark age.
So who or what are our real enemies? Are they hiding in a cave on the other side of the world? If the fundie ragheads gain a foothold here who will be to blame?
Having established a caliphate, Islamic State now believes that it is the duty of all Muslims to emigrate to it and renounce their citizenship of any other nation. It regards any form of government other than its own as anathema to Islam. According to Graeme Wood, Islamic State’s leadership believe they are on course for an apocalyptic battle with their enemies, from which they will emerge victorious. They foretell, he writes in The Atlantic, “that the armies of Rome [usually interpreted as any Christian or non-Islamic force] will mass to meet the armies of Islam in northern Syria; and that Islam’s final showdown with an anti-Messiah will occur in Jerusalem after a period of renewed Islamic conquest.” As such, Islamic State supporters actively welcome the prospect of western intervention, which they believe will hasten their own final victory.
FK – And will we kill our civilization over 3000-year-old tribal propaganda? Really?
Many mainstream Muslim organizations have gone so far as to say the Islamic State is, in fact, un-Islamic. It is, of course, reassuring to know that the vast majority of Muslims have zero interest in replacing Hollywood movies with public executions as evening entertainment. But Muslims who call the Islamic State un-Islamic are typically, as the Princeton scholar Bernard Haykel, the leading expert on the group’s theology, told me, “embarrassed and politically correct, with a cotton-candy view of their own religion” that neglects “what their religion has historically and legally required.” Many denials of the Islamic State’s religious nature, he said, are rooted in an “interfaith-Christian-nonsense tradition.”
FK – Most so-called ‘christians’ are shadows of their for bearers. That ‘old time religion’ is a mouldering in the grave. Modern churches are full of cowards and re-married divorcees, and all sorts of other un-biblical creations. Maybe they just got tired of fighting over the contradictory politically corrected mish mash they claim to follow.
War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.
I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.
I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.
FK – The Bill of Rights is what makes us exceptional. If it’s not OK for the government to treat us like jackasses then it’s not OK for the corporations to treat us like jackasses. Memorial day was created for Yankee soldiers who died while participating in the plunder and rape of the southern states.
The vast majority of gun owners felt that this registration attempt was a possible prelude to a future confiscation effort. Non-compliance is thought to be stunningly high, something in excess of the estimated 90-percent non-compliance rate for registration in neighboring Connecticut. These are truly “just paper” laws which the citizenry has brazenly ignored, and which the state law enforcement agencies in both states dare not attempt to aggressively enforce for legitimate fears that they could trigger a violent insurrection.
FK – We need to bring the troops home, activate the militia and have them hunt our domestic blood enemies in these Yankee states and in Commiefornia.
FK – The crime issue is a red herring. Always has been. Our domestic blood enemies want us disarmed so we can’t hunt them when enough finally see the necessity of doing what will be required. Simple fact.
FK – What a concept.
FK – We need to demand a full repeal of ‘all’ gun laws.
Tamika Cobb and Kendra Richard were caught on video taking merchandise from the 7-Eleven on the corner of W. Baltimore and Howard streets on April 25, the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services said.
FK – Apparently ‘unrest’ is a new PC word for rioting and looting.
