Rate Shock: In California, Obamacare To Increase Individual Health Insurance Premiums By 64-146%

What were you thinking Obama voters? Socialized medicine does not work.

Last week, the state of California claimed that its version of Obamacare’s health insurance exchange would actually reduce premiums. “These rates are way below the worst-case gloom-and-doom scenarios we have heard,” boasted Peter Lee, executive director of the California exchange. But the data that Lee released tells a different story: Obamacare, in fact, will increase individual-market premiums in California by as much as 146 percent.
One of the most serious flaws with Obamacare is that its blizzard of regulations and mandates drives up the cost of insurance for people who buy it on their own.
Interestingly, the leading socialized countries in Europe such as Sweden and Denmark, are waking up to the reality that socialism actually inhibits economic growth and personal responsibility.

Rick Warren Continues to Promote His PDL Using His Son's Death on Facebook

I've wept as so many people have written that they began reading Purpose Driven Life for the first time when my son died. Many have told me they have come to know Jesus. Even in death Matthew witnesses.

End quote. 

This is horrific. PDL couldn't even help his own son, and on top of that to use the suicide of his son to promote his atrocious book is even worse.

This is why I had spoken  both here and earlier on Facebook about the powerless, empty, and deceitfulness of Warren's PDL and psychology--neither of these could help his son because what is the sole power unto salvation and the abundant life is the Gospel of the risen Lord Jesus Christ (Rom. 1:17). The wisdom of the world, which Warren promotes brings ONLY death--both spiritually, and sometimes as in is son's case, physically because they cannot deal with the real issue of any heart: sin against the thrice holy God.

Here is the report I mentioned last month about Warren exploiting his son's death for the promotion of himself. I believed even prior to this report, that Warren would in fact do this, and have been proven right again. It is deceptive and wicked to use the death of a loved one to promote Self and worldliness--two things that are enemies of Christ. Self demands worship and that is why we need the Gospel of Christ and HIS salvation from sin and self. The death of a hopeless, helpless man who was lost cannot witness to anything that is Living and True--only that can come by way of the Lord Jesus Christ and Scripture (see Col. 2-3).

How to Undo the Institutional Brainwashing of Your College Student (Child)

Dr. Thomas Sowell of Stanford's Hoover Institute writes:

This time of year, as college students return home for the summer, many parents may notice how many politically correct ideas they have acquired on campus. Some of those parents may wonder how they can undo some of the brainwashing that has become so common in what are supposed to be institutions of higher learning....

Just demolishing a few crucial beliefs, and exposing what nonsense they are, can deal a blow to the general credibility of the professorial pied pipers....
For example, if the student has been led to join the crusade for more gun control, and thinks that the reason the British have lower murder rates than Americans have is because the Brits have tighter gun control laws, just give him or her a copy of the book "Guns and Violence" by Joyce Lee Malcolm.
As the facts in that book demolish the gun control propaganda fed to students by their professors, that can create a healthy skepticism about other professorial propaganda...
Read the whole article here.
I would also suggest articles and books by and referred by Dr. Walter Williams.
Most importantly, for the Christian parent, I would suggest much prayer and time in the Word, and then help their child do the same, bringing to bear a biblical worldview onto their adopted liberal worldview. And perhaps reconsider sending their child back into the cesspool of so many colleges and universities and paying them to destroy all that you invested and taught them.

Teacher of 15 Years Resigns: everything she loved about teaching is extinct thanks to test-centric "teaching"

The Blaze reports teacher's resignation because everything she loved about teaching is extinct. Teaching is now test-centric; that is, teachers are ONLY teaching to get students to score higher on standardized tests. Not surprising for many of us homeschool mothers. Its happening everywhere. And I would add that not only is this a problem (not every student even tests well even though they may know the material), but government schools are more indoctrination factories, infecting the minds of young children about homosexuality, psychology, evolution, political correctness, transgender, bullying, division from parental authority, and so on.

Only A Circumcised Heart By the Holy Spirit Can Love God and Thus Fulfill the Greatest Commandment

Mat 22:36  "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" 37  And He said to him, " 'YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.' 38  "This is the great and foremost commandment. 39  "The second is like it, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' 40  "On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets."

Deu 6:4  "Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! 5  "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6  "These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.

Deu 30:6  "Moreover the LORD your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, so that you may live.

Eze 36:26  "Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27  "I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. 

Rom 2:28  For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh. 29  But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but from God. 

Rom 5:1  Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ...
5  and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. 

Not THE American People, but Two Groups of American People for Progressives

Not for the first time, the President’s Chicago-style politics carried him over the finish line, with an able assist from the MSM journalists who seem only now to be awakening from a five-year slumber. Soon, no doubt, they will be repeating DNC talking points again: the election is over, the errors have been corrected, the guilty have been punished, and therefore, as they chanted throughout the Clinton years, “it’s time to get back to the business of the American people.”
What qualifies as the American people’s business has a lot to do with how one defines the American people, however. The clear lesson of these scandals is that, for progressives, there is no the American people, but rather two peoples who happen to inhabit the same territory. The first group is comprised of those loyal to the ruling class and the government it ultimately controls. During a Republican presidency, their dissent temporarily becomes the highest form of patriotism, but it is only the administration, not the permanent infrastructure of the modern bureaucratic state, that they oppose. The government, in this sense, they faithfully support regardless of electoral outcomes.
The second group includes all those “trigger word” citizens who associate too closely with terms the IRS doesn’t like: “Tea Party,” “Constitution,” “Patriot.” Their dissent from the dogmas of the ruling class, in questioning the morality and practicality of the government leviathan, represents the most dangerous threat to American society. They are loyal, in the Founders’ language, to the Union, not the government;  a misplaced love making them worthy of close surveillance if not providing grounds for political divorce.
The distinction between Union and government is central to John Jay’s argument in Federalist 2, where he describes the Union as the foundation of American security and prosperity, essential for protecting the citizens’ rights and liberties. The Union established in 1774 by the Articles of Association was, according to Jay, only the formal expression of an organic unity binding the colonists to one another and to the land they had settled....Read the entire article here.

Another One Bites The Dust: Former RI Governor and Republican Officially Joins the DNC

The Blaze:

Former Republican and Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee is changing political parties and becoming a Democrat, Politico first reported Wednesday.
Chafee served in the U.S. Senate as a Republican before winning the Rhode Island governorship as an independent in 2010. He campaigned for President Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, but held off on making his alliance with the Democratic Party official. Now, Chafee “absolutely intends to switch his party registration” before facing re-election in 2014, a source told Politico.
End quote.
FL Gov. Charlie Crist did the same thing--went from GOP to Independent to DNC last year.
All I can say is its good they are finally being honest with what they truly are. All RINOs should be doing this, whether politician or voter. Be consistent with your true values and principles, not what you say they are. You don't fool people like me who see right through your hypocrisy and glaring lack of integrity.

Tear Down That Dearest Idol

"Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love!" Revelation 2:4

Notwithstanding the comfort we may take from the glimpse we had of our glorified Savior's omniscience in our last meditation; in that Jesus knows the sincerity of His people's motives, the greatness of their temptations, and the extent of their patient endurance and labor for His name's sake; yet we must not stop short of the other part of His address to His people, namely, that He knows also their backslidings, their wanderings, their faithlessness to Him who has done so much for them....

Often ask yourselves, "Is this the amount of love I shall be satisfied with, when I see Him who has loved me and given Himself for me? When my faith shall be turned to sight--shall I love Jesus thus coldly?"

Endeavor to realize the presence of Jesus now--that will rekindle your fainting love. Endeavor to realize the love of Jesus to your souls--and that will revive your languid affection. Look back on the affection for Jesus which you once experienced, remember from whence you are fallen, and repent and do the first works!

"The dearest idol I have known,
Whatever that idol be,
Help me to tear it from Thy throne,
And worship only Thee!"

(Maria Sandberg, "Glimpses of Heaven!" 1880)

Voddie Baucham Denounces Lectio Divina at Moody's Pastor Conference

Stand Up For Truth  reports that the break out session at the Moody Pastor's Conference where they had practiced the Roman Catholic Eastern Mystic Lectio Divina, was a surprise to Voddie Baucham, who clarified that he in no way condones the practice nor had prior knowledge that it would be used:

Department of Justice Pamphlet Demands Verbal Acceptance of Sodomy Lifestyle

The Department of Justice has been accused of religious intolerance and viewpoint discrimination after workers were sent an email directing them to verbally affirm homosexuality, according to a law firm specializing in religious liberty and now representing a DOJ whistleblower....

Liberty Counsel said DOJ employees were emailed a brochure called “LGBT Inclusion at Work: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Managers.” The brochure was created as a resource from DOJ Pride, an association of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees of the DOJ.
A Department of Justice spokesperson did not return calls seeking comment. Fox News also reached out to DOJ Pride for comment – but emails were not answered.
Among the directives in the brochure is an order for workers to vocally affirm homosexuality.
“Don’t judge or remain silent,” the brochure read. “Silence will be interpreted as disapproval.”They were also told to post “DOJ Pride” stickers in their office to indicate “that it is a safe place.”
No tolerance from the homosexual activists. The reason is because they want to normalize sodomy and not be told that they are living in sin and rebellion. Simply put, either tell them they are normal and accept their unnatural passions, or they will stomp around, scream, threaten, and have basically have a conniption fit. 
Bully is another word for this behavior.

Hospital Workers Don't Wash The Hands Frequently: so much for concern for the patient's well-being

Studies have shown that without encouragement, hospital workers wash their hands as little as 30 percent of the time that they interact with patients. So in addition to the video snooping, hospitals across the country are training hand-washing coaches, handing out rewards like free pizza and coffee coupons, and admonishing with “red cards.” They are using radio-frequency ID chips that note when a doctor has passed by a sink, and undercover monitors, who blend in with the other white coats, to watch whether their colleagues are washing their hands for the requisite 15 seconds, as long as it takes to sing the “Happy Birthday” song.
All this effort is to coax workers into using more soap and water, or alcohol-based sanitizers like Purell.
“This is not a quick fix; this is a war,” said Dr. Bruce Farber, chief of infectious disease at North Shore.
But the incentive to do something is strong: under new federal rules, hospitals will loseMedicare money when patients get preventable infections.
And people wonder why they end up back in the hospital repeatedly or just can't seem to get better. Its a dirty place anyway, but for doctors and nurses to not do simple hand-cleaning on a regular basis for the protection of the patient is unacceptable.  I've even seen our old pediatrician's gloved hands handle all sorts of things in the office and then touch my daughter. I was astonished because it showed that the gloves were merely for his protection, not the health of my daughter. That was a wake up call!
Its pitiful if it takes BRIBING to get "health professionals" to do basic health hygiene. That is part of protocol and should not be rewarded. Rather they should be fired if they can't follow policy and common sense. That's like bribing a 5th grader for doing what is merely expected of him: turning in his homework.  Furthermore, how pitiful that merely the lack of Medicare money is the incentive to do what is common sense for the patient. It demonstrates yet again that this is not about the well-being of the patient, but merely about MONEY.

Newborn Chinese Baby Flushed Down Toilet Is Rescued--Praise God for His Mercy!

Newborn baby was flushed down a toilet and got stuck. Cries heard from apartment occupants led to firefighters rescuing the poor sweet baby.

As NBC News reports:

Emergency crews who arrived on the scene could see the baby’s head far down inside the toilet duct, but were unable to reach down far enough into the 4-inch in diameter pipe to pull him out.
Rescuers had to walk down one floor below to cut the pipe free...
Police there have also said that they were treating the investigation as an attempted murder...On Chinese social media, users expressed their outrage over the incident and called for the parents to be punished.
End quote.
The link also has incredible video of the rescue. God truly had mercy on that precious little life despite the attempt to kill it.  Sure reminded me of the whole Gosnell murder case where that "doctor" also kills babies AFTER they are born.

Mental "Disorders" or "Illness" Isn't Medical At All; There Are No Biological Markers


"The reason there is so much controversy about DSM-5 is that psychiatric diagnosis has become, if anything, too important — not only in clinical decisions but also in school services, disability and in the courtroom. There's a tremendous amount at stake," says Frances, of Coronado, Calif., a professor emeritus at Duke University in Durham, N.C.
Because the DSM contains a detailed list of psychiatric disorders, it's a guidebook for the U.S. health care system and insurance coverage...

Psychotherapist Gary Greenberg, of New London, Conn., has written about the DSM for more than a decade and says the DSM disorders are "simply collections of symptoms that some experts agree constitute mental illnesses. There's not a single diagnosis in DSM that lives up to the standards of medical diseases."
"If I as a therapist tell you (that) you have a mental disorder, it's not the same thing as my telling you you have diabetes or cancer because diabetes and cancer are diseases that can be confirmed through biochemical findings. They meet the requirements for a disease in the way we generally think of a disease. There is not a single disorder in DSM-5 or any DSM that does that," says Greenberg, author of The Book of Woe: The DSM and the Unmaking of Psychiatry, out earlier this month.
"The whole disease model that underlies the DSM has been an utter scientific failure," says Stuart Kirk, a professor emeritus of social welfare at UCLA, who has been tracking DSM for decades. "There's not a single biological marker for any of the 300-plus disorders. What we do instead is descriptive. This describing is creating a disorder and pretending it's a medical illness rather than just human behavior."...
Psychiatrist Michael Taylor, of Ann Arbor, Mich., author of Hippocrates Cried: The Decline of American Psychiatry, out last month, says psychiatry has to go back to the medical model for disease.
"The reason why so many of the syndromes don't work out when they do field trials is that they don't exist in biological reality," he says. "They only exist in the DSM."
The focus on biomarkers and away from symptoms got attention just weeks ago when a blog post by Thomas Insel, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, said the DSM is "at best, a dictionary, creating a set of labels and defining each" and that "its weakness is its lack of validity." He says NIMH will reorient its research away from the manual because "DSM diagnoses are based on a consensus about clusters of clinical symptoms, not any objective laboratory measure."

T4G Leaders Silent Until SGM Child Molestation Case Dismissed on a Technicality: blind loyalty no matter what Scripture States

Thoughts regarding child molestation charges dismissed (on a technicality) at Sovereign Grace churches and SGM by Basyle ’Boz’ Tchividjian, J.D.:


This past week, I have fluctuated between anger and tears as I read about Christian leaders who proclaim the Gospel with their voice, but remain silent and/or defensive about the horrors of child sexual abuse within the Church.  These leaders have once again, and perhaps unwittingly, demonstrated the art of marginalizing individual souls for the sake of reputation and friendships....

What I did find was a lot of statements by Christians claiming that all of these individuals were innocent until “proven guilty by a jury”.   Sadly, that is not the only time I have heard such a response from the Christian community when allegations of child sexual victimization are brought forward.  What is ironic, or better yet, down right disturbing is that these same individuals don’t approach any other sinful crime in such a distorted manner.  For example, so many Christians will cry about against abortion doctors who have been alleged to have killed babies outside of the womb (horrific), but when a person alleges child sexual abuse by someone in the Church, these same Christians cry out that a person is innocent until proven guilty by a court of law? Of course a person or institution can only be held legally responsible under civil law when that has been determined by a court of law.  I don’t think anyone has suggested otherwise.  However, does this mean that a jury is required in order to determine the existence of evil?  Seriously?  Think about the ramifications of such a distorted viewpoint.  Does that mean that since a jury acquitted OJ Simpson of murder, he is factually innocent?  Is that what we heard from the Christian community at that time?  How about a person who commits first degree murder but the crime is not discovered until after the expiration of the statute of limitations and thus case is subsequently dismissed by the court. Does this mean they are factually innocent? In fact, most Christians who advocate such a viewpoint don’t apply it in any other areas of sin.  Adultery?  Gossip?  Are you beginning to see the fallacies of this perspective?  Such an approach to sin is incredibly damaging to so many precious individuals who were sexually victimized for years and manipulated by perpetrators and church leaders into remaining silent....

The silence from Evangelical “leaders” regarding the issue of child sexual abuse within the Church was deafening and spoke volumes.  Why no statements about the horrors of child sexual abuse and the apparent horrors of the abuse that occurred in these two churches? Why no statements from Evangelical leaders that express grave concern that there is even a possibility that these church leaders instructed victims and their families to embrace the horrors of silence?  We are now told by some that the silence was because of pending litigation.  Really? Since when have Christians allowed pending civil litigation to silence them over sin?  How does pending litigation prevent Christians or anyone else for that matter, from making a generic statement denouncing child sexual abuse or those who cover it up?    

...Many of these men have not hesitated to write (or tweet) on the Penn State horrors, homosexuals in the Boy Scouts, and universal healthcare, but have been conspicuously quiet on this issue. And when they finally speak, what is omitted speaks more than what is said. 

End quote.

1Ti 5:19  Do not receive an accusation against an elder except on the basis of two or three witnesses. 

In this suit (and there is a civil suit filed), there were many witnesses. What happened to doing things biblically?  And why didn't anyone in leadership presumably call the authorities when charges were made initially, for the sake and safety of the children? Even the world does THAT.

A mere technical dismissal and all SGM/Mahaney fans come leaping out in one huge luvfest?

Wow. That's just wrong. On so many levels.

Charismatic Preacher on Bus In Nigeria Beaten When Condoms Fall Out of Bible While Preaching Against Wearing Trousers Make-up an

The beating is wrong, no doubt. However this is not a biblical Christian by any means. From the report, he didn't preach Christ, but had his own agenda, and when jumped on, preached sex.

1Pe 4:15  Make sure that none of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a troublesome meddler;16  but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to glorify God in this name.

Here is what a true Christian pastor should be doing:

1Co 2:1  And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. 2  For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. 

2Co 1:12  For our proud confidence is this: the testimony of our conscience, that in holiness and godly sincerity, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God, we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you. 

2Co 4:5  For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus' sake. 

Seems its Benny Hinn meets Ed Young in this guy.

Honor the Fallen: Memorial Day

From our own town:

But let us remember that all of that is temporary. True enslavement is to sin and death and true freedom is found in Christ alone, who while sinless, died for many so that they will be truly free from sin's bondage and freed to live for Christ alone.

Amazing Grace

"Amazing Grace" was written by John Newton in 1779. It reflects his salvation by Christ, recognizing that while he was part of the slave trade industry, he was truly the one enslaved to sin and its just wage of death, as an enemy of Christ. Once Jesus Christ regenerated him, he saw his total depravity before the thrice holy God and since that time, sought to live for Christ alone. In doing so, he tried to fight the slave trade for years.

This version in the video by Chris Tomlin has a slight change with the chorus, but still reflects the reality of what John Newton, and all true Christians know: that outside of Jesus Christ, we too, like the rest, were by nature children of wrath, enslaved to sin and death.

Until Christ made us free.

And now we live as HIS slaves, His children, His sons because of such great love He showed us while we were His enemies.

Rom 6:20  For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.
Rom 6:21  Therefore what benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death.
Rom 6:22  But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life.
Rom 6:23  For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Memorial Day, Remembering Christ Jesus

 Remembering those who served our country for our temporary, physical freedom....

Thanking God for TRUE freedom that only the death (and resurrection) of Jesus Christ could forever purchase for us, because true enslavement is spiritual and so is true, lasting peace and  freedom....

Gal. 3: 22 But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.

Rom 6:20  For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 
Rom 6:21  Therefore what benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death. 
Rom 6:22  But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life. 
Rom 6:23  For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The Religious Practice of Yoga Being Used In Schools: Parents Sue for Separation of Religion from State

Yoga is definitely a religious practice and this is understood by many secularists as well as yogis. Because its deeply rooted in Eastern Mystic religions, it should be seen by everyone for what it is: a religious practice. As such, schools need to stop this practice if they are going to curtail other religious practices (reading a Bible, praying, etc) and be consistent. Following the excerpts from the news article, I post links to information about the dangers of yoga and how its not merely exercise, but an integral part of Eastern religions.

WND reports:

Parents who are upset over the introduction of yoga lessons – funded by a private foundation that promotes yoga – into their children’s school curriculum have filed a lawsuit to bring them to a halt....

The lawsuit notes Harvard-educated religious studies professor Candy Gunter Brown’s findings that the school’s yoga program is religious in nature, having its roots in Hindu, Buddhist and Taoist beliefs.
In a report from Fox News, Broyles stated that the yoga program goes too far.
“EUSD’s Ashtanga yoga program represents a serious breach of the public trust,” Broyles said. “Compliance with the clear requirements of law is not optional or discretionary. This is frankly the clearest case of the state trampling on the religious freedom rights of citizens that I have personally witnessed in my 18 years of practice as a constitutional attorney.”

...According to Broyles, children who have opted out of the program have been bullied. He also noted that students who opt out are missing out on 60 of the 100 weekly minutes of physical activity required by the state, since they usually sit and read during yoga instruction.
~End quote

Its true; yoga is very much a religious practice.  For multiple articles on the dangers of yoga go here.

Al Mohler states:

Reading The Subtle Body is an eye-opening and truly interesting experience. To a remarkable degree, the growing acceptance of yoga points to the retreat of biblical Christianity in the culture. Yoga begins and ends with an understanding of the body that is, to say the very least, at odds with the Christian understanding. Christians are not called to empty the mind or to see the human body as a means of connecting to and coming to know the divine. Believers are called to meditate upon the Word of God — an external Word that comes to us by divine revelation — not to meditate by means of incomprehensible syllables.

Nevertheless, a significant number of American Christians either experiment with yoga or become adherents of some yoga discipline. Most seem unaware that yoga cannot be neatly separated into physical and spiritual dimensions. The physical is the spiritual in yoga, and the exercises and disciplines of yoga are meant to connect with the divine.
Douglas R. Groothuis, Professor of Philosophy at Denver Seminary and a respected specialist on the New Age Movement, warns Christians that yoga is not merely about physical exercise or health. “All forms of yoga involve occult assumptions,” he warns, “even hatha yoga, which is often presented as a merely physical discipline.” While most adherents of yoga avoid the more exotic forms of ritualized sex that are associated with tantric yoga, virtually all forms of yoga involve an emphasis on channeling sexual energy throughout the body as a means of spiritual enlightenment.

Sweden's Rioting By Muslims

The Muslim riots in the suburbs outside Stockholm bear a strong resemblance to the Muslim riots that began Oct. 27, 2005, in suburbs outside Paris.
Several common elements between the rioting in France in 2005, and again in 2012, with the rioting currently occurring in Stockholm:
  • Unemployed Muslim youth immigrants from welfare families relocated from Africa to Europe begin the riot in early evening by tossing Molotov cocktails to set parked cars on fire;
  • The violence is intensified and spread by mobs of Muslim gangs running wild through the suburb streets, spreading to the area in which cars and buildings are torched;
  • When police and fire department units respond, the Muslim rioters lie in wait to pelt them with rocks, sticks and Molotov cocktails.
In February, the Economist reported that in Sweden, only 51 percent of non-Europeans have a job, compared with over 84 percent of native Swedes.
“The Nordic countries need to persuade their citizens that they are getting a good return on their taxes,” the Economist noted, “but mass immigration is creating a class of people who are permanently dependent upon the state.”
In Sweden, 26 percent of all prisoners and 50 percent of prisoners serving more than five years are foreigners, the Economist detailed.
Nor is the conflict limited to social-demographic characteristics and economics; it also extends to cultural differences.
“Nordics fervently believe in liberal values, especially sexual equality and freedom of speech, but many of the immigrants come from countries where men and women are segregated and criticizing the prophet Muhammad is a serious offense,” the Economist concluded.

More on the Muslims rioting Sweden here :

"Sweden is the best Islamic State." — Adly Abu Hajar, Imam based in Malmö
Hundreds of Muslim immigrants have rampaged through parts of the Swedish capital of Stockholm, torching cars and buses, setting fires, and hurling rocks at police.
The unrest -- a predictable consequence of Sweden's failed model of multiculturalism, which does not encourage Muslim immigrants to assimilate or integrate into Swedish society -- is an ominous sign of things to come.

....Sweden is a prime destination for asylum seekers because the country offers new immigrants free housing and social welfare benefits upon arrival. But many immigrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East are poorly educated and have great difficulty finding a job in Sweden.
