Trump Administration Stands Up for U.S. Copyright Protections Under Potential South African Threat

At CFIF, we’ve unceasingly highlighted the foundational role of intellectual property (IP) rights – patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets – in what we know as “American Exceptionalism.”

No nation matches our legacy of IP protection throughout the decades and centuries.  Our Founding Fathers specifically inserted IP protections in Article I of the Constitution, even before the First Amendment or other Bill of Rights protections.

As a direct result no nation in human history remotely matches our legacy of scientific inventiveness, artistic innovation, global influence, power and prosperity.

And today, IP-centric industries account for about 40% of the total U.S. economy, and 45 million jobs – nearly 30% of the U.S. labor force.  For perspective, that U.S. IP…[more]

Allahu Akbar-itis: America's Deadly and Debilitating Disease Print
By Michelle Malkin
Wednesday, November 01 2017
Instead of striking fear, 'Allahu Akbar!' has unleashed collective foolishness.

"Shout 'Allahu Akbar,' because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers."

Who knew hijacker Mohammed Atta's parting words, discovered in his journal after the 9/11 attacks, would become a national punchline? The louder and more frequently jihadists around the globe shriek their signature battle cry, the more fervently multicultural apologists deny its meaning. They've transformed the Islamic supremacists' obvious and explicit call for violence into a bland utterance of peace as indiscernible and nonsensical as "Aloha Snackbar."

With blood still fresh on the pavement in Manhattan after Monday's outbreak of Allahu Akbar-itis that took at least eight innocent lives, Palestinian-American propagandist and Hamas cheerleader Linda Sarsour tweeted:

"Every believing Muslim says Allahu Akbar every day during prayers. We cannot criminalize 'God is great.'"

Rice University sociologist Dr. Craig Considine mourned: "It begins. CNN reports murderer said "Allahu Akbar." Queue the Islamophobia."

And confused former director of national intelligence James Clapper mused: 'It's hard to comprehend...what moves a human being to do that to another human being."

Instead of striking fear, "Allahu Akbar!" has unleashed collective foolishness.

"Allahu Akbar!" screamed Amor Ftouhi just five months ago at Bishop Airport in Flint, Michigan, before stabbing a police officer in the neck.

"Allahu Akbar!" Ftouhi chanted repeatedly in multiple court hearings throughout the summer.

"Motive still unknown," the experts declared.

"Allahu Akbar!" fulminated militant Muslim black separatist Kori Ali Muhammad in April after shooting and killing three white people in downtown Fresno, California.

"It's too early to say" whether the motive was "terrorism," law enforcement officials opined. The Associated Press whitewashed Muhammad's declaration, helpfully obscuring his exact exclamation to the Islam-free translation, "God is Great."

"Allahu Akbar!" spewed Dahir Adan at St. Cloud's Crossroads Center mall in Minnesota, before plunging kitchen knives into 10 shoppers. Last month, on the anniversary of the bloodbath, the head-scratchers at the Minneapolis Star-Tribune announced:

"One year later, motive of St. Cloud mall attacker remains unclear."

From the Muslim monsters who decapitated American hostage Nick Berg, to the Fort Dix, New Jersey, attack plotters, to convicted al-Qaida scientist Aafia Siddiqui, to Fort Hood assassin Nidal Malik Hasan, to Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad, to the machete-wielding murderers who beheaded a London soldier on a busy street, to the truck and stabbing jihadists in Dijon and Nantes, to the Charlie Hebdo-targeting jihadists in Paris, to the ISIS gunmen at Bataclan, to double-stabber Wasil Rafat Farooqui in Roanoke, Virginia, the message of "Allahu Akbar" is unmistakable:

Kill all infidels.

But to those who pretend that "Islamophobia" and the imagined "backlash" against Muslims are greater threats than the hijackers and head-choppers, "Allahu Akbar" is Arabic for "The death and destruction committed in the name of Islam have nothing to do with Islam."

As Islam scholar and author Dr. Robert Spencer told me: "Every time there's a jihad terror attack and every time there's an uncovered plot for jihad terror attack, the news media is filled with stories about anti-Muslim backlash. (The) local mosque asks for police protection. The imam says we're afraid of right-wing yahoos who are going to come and victimize innocent people."

And every suspicious sneeze and sideways glance at oversensitive Muslims is definitively interpreted by the grievance-mongers of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and their ilk as a "hate crime."

When homicidal warriors for Allah are maiming and murdering non-Muslims according to the plain directives of the Quran—and spelling out their celebration of Islam-inspired violence word (ALLAHU) for word (AKBAR)—it is crazy and delusional to say their actions cannot be understood.

Stop the whitewash. Stop the insanity. Jihad denial is suicidal.
