Arizona woman raised in ‘Islamic cult’ reveals ‘harrowing abuse’ to prove women’s bodies ‘didn’t belong to them’


Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Tamara MC describes how an Arizona “Islamic cult” used “harrowing abuse” to subjugate women until they “accepted” that their bodies did not belong to them. The fact is that Islamic texts sanction the abuse of women, unlike those of any other religion. Tamara grew up “practicing Sufism – an Islamic sect that contains a series of intense rules and regulations designed to control almost every aspect of members’ lives.” These words validate such treatment in the eyes of the Muslim males or male guardians who adhere to them….

“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34

“Your women are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth as you will” — Qur’an 2:223

Muhammad’s wives are even trained to get permission to go to the bathroom:

The Prophet said to his wives, “You are allowed to go out to answer the call of nature.” — Sahih Bukhari 4:149

“Woman who grew up in Islamic ‘cult’ in Arizona lifts lid on harrowing abuse she endured in sick sect – revealing how leaders ‘broke’ young women with physical punishments to prove their bodies ‘didn’t belong to them,’” by Lillian Gissen, Daily Mail, September 8, 2023:

A woman who was raised in an extremist religious ‘cult’ has lifted a lid on the harrowing ‘abuse’ that she endured as a child.

Tamara MC, 50, revealed that she was taught she ‘wasn’t worthy of cleanliness,’ and forced to live in ‘filth’ and ‘reek of mildew’ because there was only one washer and no dryer for more than 100 people to share.

She grew up in Tucson, Arizona, practicing Sufism – an Islamic sect that contains a series of intense rules and regulations designed to control almost every aspect of members’ lives.

According to Tamara, who left the group in her 20s and is now an author, activist, and motivational speaker based in New York City, the leaders used fear and manipulation tactics to teach women and children ‘blind obedience to authority’ – setting them up ‘for a lifetime of abuse.’

She laid bare the trauma she was put through as a child in a recent essay for Newsweek – while opening up about how even after she ultimately fled the group it took years for her to undo the long-lasting effects of her ‘destructive, neglectful, and chaotic upbringing.’,,,,,,

A Porn Star Is Running for the Virginia House of Delegates, and Why Not?

A Porn Star Is Running for the Virginia House of Delegates, and Why Not?
Susanna Gibson is running for a key seat in the Virginia House of Delegates that could determine which party has a majority in that body and can enact its agenda. She has also just been discovered to be an active porn star, performing sex acts with her husband on livestreams. After this news broke, Gibson was defiant, refusing to withdraw from the race. And why should she? She perfectly encapsulates the Democrats’ present-day ethos: statism and libertinism wrapped in the language of moral crusades and individual rights.

Gibson promises that if she is elected, she “will continue to fight for you, your families, and our community.” Hey, great, we’ve never heard a candidate say that before. She ticks all the boxes for today’s left: “Climate change is a very real threat to our national security, public health, economic prosperity, and diverse biosphere,” she informs us solemnly. She wants “common-sense gun laws.” She “will be a strong ally for the LGBTQ+ community in our General Assembly.”

Above all, she will fight for the most important issue of all for Democrats today, the right to sacrifice babies to Moloch: “As a volunteer with Planned Parenthood, I believe strongly — with every fiber of my being — that women must have control over their own bodies.” Oh, boy, does she.

The Washington Post revealed Monday that Gibson has “performed sex acts with her husband for a live online audience and encouraged viewers to pay them with ‘tips’ for specific requests.” She “streamed sex acts on Chaturbate, a platform that says it takes its name from ‘the act of masturbating while chatting online.’” Yet despite the fact that these live streams were all too public, a furious Gibson responded to this revelation by terming it “an illegal invasion of my privacy designed to humiliate me and my family.”

In the tried-and-true Democrat fashion, Gibson claimed victimhood, saying that the disclosure that she has sex for money on video “won’t intimidate me and it won’t silence me.” She charged that “my political opponents and their Republican allies have proven they’re willing to commit a sex crime to attack me and my family because there’s no line they won’t cross to silence women when they speak up.”

Wait a minute. A “sex crime”? Gibson was referring not to her videos, but to the revelation that she had made them. As they were quite public, it’s difficult to see how she has a case, but she is claiming that the revelation that she made the videos constitutes revenge porn, which is against the law in Virginia. With all the indignant self-righteousness he could muster, Gibson’s attorney, Daniel P. Watkins, stated: “We are working closely with state and federal law enforcement.”

Yeah, well, it doesn’t take a lawyer to point out that revenge-porn laws address the unauthorized publication of photos or videos that were meant to remain private. The Post notes that “in this case, Gibson originally live-streamed these sexual acts on a site that was not password-protected. The couple had more than 5,700 followers there.

Many of the videos remained available to the public on other unrestricted sites as of Saturday.” Watkins “pointed to a 2021 Virginia Court of Appeals ruling that found it was unlawful for a man to secretly record his girlfriend during a consensual sexual encounter even if he did not show the video to others.” Yet there was nothing secret about Gibson’s videos.

Corey D. Silverstein, whom the Post identifies as “a prominent adult entertainment industry lawyer,” is more honest when he says, “I think it’s fantastic you have someone running who has an open sex life. It’s actually very refreshing.” Refreshing maybe, but Susanna Gibson certainly epitomizes the ethos of the modern Democrat Party. Why shouldn’t the party that is pushing drag queens and pornography in primary schools want a pornographic performer in the Virginia House of Delegates?

In Huxley’s “Brave New World,” the luckless inhabitants of the dystopian statist future are kept perpetually stoned with a drug that keeps them passive and happy as they toil away as slaves to the state. Gibson’s drug of choice is pornography, but if that doesn’t do it for you, the Democrats are also offering free needles and all manner of other perks to those who just keep pushing the correct lever and keeping them in power. The Post notes that Gibson’s “two largest donors are the environmental group Clean Virginia Fund ($45,000) and the abortion rights outfit Emily’s List ($20,000).” Of course, they are. Impoverished, barren, and enslaved to the shallow pursuit of pleasure: there’s the perfect leftist voter.

In her own defense, Gibson took a page from Trump’s playbook, charging that “they are trying to silence me because they want to silence you, and I won’t let that happen.” She doesn’t want us silenced until she is elected. Then she wants us to shut up and watch porn while we are disarmed and rendered defenseless as our economy is destroyed and our rights are systematically taken away. It’s the Democrat way. She’s the perfect Democrat candidate.

Iran’s president mocks Biden: We’ll spend $6,000,000,000 from hostage swap however the Islamic Republic wishes

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi has thumbed his nose at America and the Western world as he flaunted $6 billion in oil revenue that the U.S. had frozen through sanctions and that now will be at his disposal. According to the Daily Mail:

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi says his country will use $6 billion in unlocked funds ‘wherever we need it’ – rejecting a limitation in negotiations with the U.S. that limits the money to ‘humanitarian purposes.’

Then he declared:

This money belongs to the Islamic Republic of Iran, and naturally, we will decide – the Islamic Republic of Iran will decide – to spend it wherever we need it. How to spend our money of course, it is under the authority of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Did Biden actually think that Iran could be trusted to spend $6,000,000,000 from the hostage swap on humanitarian causes? Iran is infamously dishonest. Any money released to Iran will be used for nefarious purposes, including expanding the regime’s powers regionally and globally, boost its nuclear program, and fund its continued jihad terror machine via its proxies, particularly against Israel.

Iran has a clear path during the rule in the West of appeasement-minded Leftist governments, such as America first under Obama and now under Biden. Iran was said to have received $33.6 billion between 2014 and 2016, in secret backroom deals facilitated by the Obama administration. And between January 2014 and July 2015, Iran was reportedly paid $700 million each month from funds that were previously frozen by U.S. sanctions, as Obama worked out a nuke deal with the Islamic regime, a deal that was a sham by Iran’s own admission.

Donald Trump and House Republicans are now rightly outraged, slamming Biden for “paying ransom to Iran to secure the release of American prisoners.” It is no secret that Iran conjures up fake charges against foreign citizens and Iranian dual citizens, detains them, and then manipulates the hostage policies of Western nations to squeeze money and concessions from America and its allies.

Under the deal that was signed off on last week, frozen Iranian money will now be transferred from South Korea to Qatar without technically violating U.S. sanctions.

The timing of the announcement to Congress of the Biden regime deal to send $6,000,000,000 to Iran in exchange for hostages couldn’t have been more glaring: it came on the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Under the Biden administration, which is virtually a third Obama term, America’s worst enemies have never been stronger.

Biden regime forced Marines to pick up human feces before they were allowed to leave Kabul in Aug. 2021

The traitor class that has captured the U.S. government despises the U.S. military rank-and-file. They control the brass, but they are aware that the ranks are still filled with patriots, and they’re doing their best to remedy that.

“Marines were ordered to pick up human feces before they were allowed to leave Kabul: ‘Degrading and ridiculous,’” by Miranda Devine, New York Post, September 10, 2023:

Before they were allowed to leave Kabul in August 2021, having just lost 13 comrades to a suicide bomber, US Marines were ordered to pick up human feces and other disgusting trash at the airport so as to leave it pristine for the Taliban.

This humiliation is recounted for the first time in a new book, “Kabul: The Untold Story of Biden’s Fiasco and the American Warriors Who Fought to the End.”

The Kabul airport passenger terminal was filthy on Aug. 28, 2021, after the botched Afghanistan withdrawal.

More than 120,000 Afghans had camped there for a week, “defecating and leaving trash, bags, clothes, and other unspeakable things.”…

The order to clean “came with a threat that we would not leave at all if it was not completed,” one junior Marine told authors Jerry Dunleavy and James Hasson.

“It was degrading and ridiculous…

Member Of Anti-Catholic Drag Queen Group Arrested For Indecent Public Exposure

According to a sheriff’s office report that the press obtained this week, a prominent member of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a group of primarily gay men who dress in drag and openly mock Catholics, was arrested in California last month for indecent exposure after it was alleged by witnesses that he openly masturbated in public for an hour.

After receiving a report of a man “exposing himself in the driver’s seat of a parked vehicle,” authorities detained 53-year-old Clinton Monroe Ellis-Gilmore at a seaside park, according to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s office.

“According to numerous witnesses, Ellis-Gilmore had been at that location for approximately one hour, sitting in his truck with the door open, masturbating,” according to a sheriff’s report on the incident, which took place on August 12th at around 6:41 p.m. “The conduct does not appear to have been directed at anyone in particular.” 

In Loleta, California, at Table Bluff County Park, the arrest was made.

The park is described by Google reviews as “good for kids” and the location of “kid-friendly hikes.”

The press was able to obtain Ellis-Gilmore’s booking photo, which shows that he was shirtless when he was taken into custody.

Earlier this year, the Los Angeles Dodgers’ decision to recognize the group during an LGBTQ “Pride” event garnered negative backlash for the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

However, the group also gained the backing of many mainstream media outlets who supported the organization against those who said it was a perverse hate group, praising them for their “dedication to community service.”

The men typically dress as traditional nuns and use names that are sexually provocative while mocking Catholicism and Christianity.

A local Humboldt County website, The Lost Coast Populist, broke the news of Ellis-Gilmore’s original arrest. They discovered several of his previous social media posts and established the first connection between Ellis-Gilmore and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

Ellis-Gilmore made no attempt to conceal what was happening in the park, according to Randy Fleek, a witness who spoke with the officers who conducted the arrest.

Fleek said that Ellis-Gilmore had parked two spaces away from his trailer, leaving the truck door wide open while putting his right leg up on the dashboard. He was also reportedly wearing no trousers, giving Fleek an open side view of Ellis-Gilmore “playing with himself.”

“Well this is f***ed up,” Fleek said, speaking of what he saw. “It’s obvious. You cannot help but see this guy, he’s not hiding it. He wants everyone to see what he’s doing.”

Throughout the hour, he said that vehicles pulled up to the parking area and left, some of them carrying young girls and boys who were passing by. Fleek said that he felt immense relief when the sheriff’s deputies came.

“There’s something wrong with that man. He’s got a weird f***ing desire to show off to the public, to anybody that wants to look at him,” Fleek said. “He puts himself in a position and in a spot that you can’t help but look at the son of a b****.”

The “popular” park, where many cars pass by to gaze at the ocean, added to the unsettling nature of what he saw.

“People do not pull in to view this sort of perverse behavior, they do so to see the ocean.”

He maintained that Ellis-Gilmore’s purported intentions were obvious.

The suspected public masturbator, Ellis-Gilmore, had long been involved with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence in Eureka, California. According to social media posts, Ellis-Gilmore appears to go by numerous identities in the organization, including “Novice Sister Bethe Cockhim” and “Novice Sister Man Romeo.”

Ellis-Gilmore took part in a number of Eureka Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence activities, including a book reading at an elementary school where he read to kids while a man in a mock-nun costume and fishnet tights was also seen wearing a blonde wig.

“Yesterday sisters had the most magical time reading story books to the Peninsula elementary school kids in recognition of them Studying LGBT awareness month! Thanks for the honor!” a post from October 31st, 2018 read. 

Additionally, Ellis-Gilmore and the “sisters” have a history of posting sexually explicit statements on social media. Two sister members were shown clutching a fake penis in one of their posts, while Ellis-Gilmore displayed his nipple piercing and a cartoon “gay smurf” drawing with erections and pubic hair.

As DHS Warns of Domestic Terror Threat, Al-Qaeda Threatens New Attack on US Worse Than 9/11

As DHS Warns of Domestic Terror Threat, Al-Qaeda Threatens New Attack on US Worse Than 9/11

Could al-Qaeda carry out a major attack inside the United States again? Is anyone inside the Biden regime’s corrupt, clueless, and compromised Department of Homeland Security even paying attention to that possibility?

Although law enforcement authorities and the establishment media have cultivated the habit of ignoring it, al-Qaeda still exists. The terror organization seized the opportunity of the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 jihad attacks to issue a new threat to the United States, vowing to carry out an attack that would be far worse than 9/11.

This comes just as Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has once again restated, as Ben Bartee detailed Tuesday, the Biden regime’s oft-repeated false claim that “the threat of the domestic violent extremist is the most prominent terrorism-related threat that we face in the homeland now.” Could al-Qaeda successfully pull off a major attack in the U.S. while Mayorkas’ woke DHS is hunting for “domestic violent extremists”? You bet your life.

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported Tuesday that al-Qaeda’s Al-Sahab Media Foundation has just published a new issue of its glossy, slickly produced magazine, Ummah Wahidah (“One Ummah,” that is, one global Islamic community). The new edition is “dedicated to the 22nd anniversary of the #September_attacks,” and bears on its cover a quotation from the Qur’an: “They thought that their strongholds would protect them from Allah. But Allah reached them from a place they did not expect and cast terror in their hearts so that they ruined their houses with their own hands and the hands of the believers. So learn a lesson, O you who have eyes” (59:2).

This was an exceedingly piquant choice for a quote from Islamic scripture, for it contains the strange assertion that the infidels “ruined their houses with their own hands,” as well as “the hands of the believers.” In Islamic tradition, this verse is generally understood to refer to Muhammad’s siege of the Banu Nadir, a Jewish tribe of Medina who supposedly destroyed their own homes during the siege, after which Muhammad exiled them from the city.

This idea that the infidels would destroy themselves is also found in the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan for the U.S., an internal document that was captured during the FBI’s investigation of the Holy Land Foundation, and Islamic charity, in 2007: “The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

It’s a strange idea that the unbelievers would sabotage their own house. But Mayorkas is doing just that in ignoring the continuing threat from al-Qaeda and other jihad groups and focusing the attention of the DHS on stopping those who are allegedly “spreading disinformation,” as well as “the frequency and gravity of extreme weather events.” That’s right: the Department of Homeland Security, which was created in order to meet the threat of jihad terrorism more effectively, is now protecting us all from “climate change” and what the left regards as the dangers of the freedom of speech.

Al-Qaeda, meanwhile, asserts that “today everyone sees the signs of the global order’s death throes.” They mean you, Mayorkas, and your wrongheaded, politicized, corrupt department. The jihadis go on to declare that “the coming Islamic blow” must have “effects and reverberations” that “surpass those of the September raids.”

They say that this will accomplish the goals of “snatching away America’s prestige, shaking its domination in our region, limiting its capabilities vis-à-vis the international community, and creating as many deep fissures and vertical cracks in the structure of the global order as possible.” After that, “Allah willing, Al-Qaeda and its heroes will play a great role in redrawing the maps of power in the world.”

The terrorists are aware that they don’t need to be stronger than the United States in order to pull off this devastating blow: “History testifies that it is not difficult for weak nations to make powerful empires fall into lethal traps, then direct smart blows at them and inflict defeat on them.”

Is Alejandro Mayorkas and the entire Biden regime leading our nation into just such a lethal trap by treating the nation’s counterterror apparatus as if it were just another arena in which they can carry out their program of demonizing and ultimately criminalizing legitimate political opposition and not as something they might need in order to deal with an actual threat? Of course. That’s exactly what they’re doing.

Inflation Jumps in August As Warning Signs Blink Red at the Fed

Inflation Jumps in August As Warning Signs Blink Red at the Fed

The Biden administration may have been hoping that inflation would continue its fall from a 2022 high. But the Consumer Price Index jumped half a percentage point from 3.2% in July to 3.7% in August.

While gas prices accounted for about half of the increase, there were worrying signs in other sectors of the economy as well, signaling to the Federal Reserve that, despite the steepest rise in interest rates since the early 1980s, inflation has yet to be beaten back.

Airline fares jumped nearly 5% in August, driven by higher jet fuel prices. And the 10.6% rise in gas prices was the result of OPEC+ maintaining its cuts in production.

Joe Biden tried to adorn the pig with a deep shade of red lipstick.

“Today’s report provides more evidence that core inflation is trending down toward pre-pandemic levels at a time when employment remains strong,” he said in a statement.

“I know last month’s increase in gas prices put a strain on family budgets. That’s why I remain laser-focused on cutting energy costs, including by investing in clean energy to bolster our energy security.”

Earth to Joe: “Investing in clean energy” will not — repeat not — cut energy costs immediately. The only way to cut energy costs is to bring more oil to market. It didn’t help that you just closed off 13 million acres in the Arctic from being developed.

Some food prices were lower, bringing overall food inflation to 0.2%, while meat, poultry, fish, and eggs increased 0.8%. But it’s gas prices that have hit the hardest and will no doubt continue to give the consumer a headache.

New York Times:

Prices at the pump remain well below their peak in June 2022, when a gallon of gas cost more than $5 on average. That spike was largely the result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and Mr. Biden has since sought to reduce price pressures through a variety of measures, including releasing millions of barrels of oil from the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Prices fell steadily last summer, a development that Mr. Biden celebrated.

Administration officials continue to tout that progress, using last June as a benchmark. “If you look at what we’ve been able to do from last summer to this summer — lowering gas prices by a dollar twenty cents, that is because of the work that this administration has done,” Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House press secretary, told reporters last week.

We are by no means out of the woods yet on prices. And as far as interest rates, the other shoe has yet to drop. In order for interest rates to work, the economy is going to have to slow down. That hasn’t happened much yet, and until it does, inflation will remain an ever-present threat.

The Federal Reserve raised interest rates from 5.25% to 5.5% at its July meeting, marking 11 rate increases in the last year. The thinking on the street is that the Fed will hike rates another quarter point at its meeting on September 19.

But there’s much uncertainty, both in the U.S. and globally. Has the Fed gone too far? Will the rising interest rates lead to bank failures or a stock downturn? Stay tuned for the next thrilling episode.
