ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC

July 28, 2016

I have observed our political leaders downplay the threat to America by labeling ISIS “Junior Varsity” and telling us we are safe. Since we cannot trust these political leaders to level with We the People, I am compelled to use my voice and Social Media resources night and day. More than 50 years ago I was an Intelligence Analyst at the National Security Agency. Later, I became a fighter pilot and eventually commanded the joint, multinational Cope Thunder Provisional Wing with six billion dollars in assets including F-4, F-14, F-15, F-15E, F-16, F-18 and CF-18 jet fighters along with KC-10 tankers, E-3B AWACS and C-130 Tactical Airlift.

That was before President Obama fired the most competent Generals, Colonels and Senior Enlisted Chiefs and before he cut our Armed Forces to the bone all the way down to pre WW II levels. It was also before NSA and the other 16 Intelligence Agencies became completely ineffective data collectors spying on law abiding citizens instead of the Boston Bombers and 911 Terrorists.

We are seeing sporadic Islamic attacks in America since 911 but nothing of the magnitude that we can expect. I believe the Islamic State and a hundred more organizations just like them are comfortable with the present leadership of America and are not enthusiastic about upsetting the status quo apple cart. Why awaken the sleeping giant unnecessarily? President Obama and Secretary Kerry like Secretary Clinton before him, are all about talking, drawing red lines, claiming victory and downplaying the threat. As long as members of the Islamic State are welcomed with open arms and our border is easier to cross than the state line between Arizona and California, our enemies can stockpile weapons on our soil and bring insurgents across the border in the numbers and at the times of their choosing.

The FBI has made it clear that ISIS is active in all 50 states. That number was 49 not long ago but now there is evidence of an active ISIS presence in Alaska to make the occupation complete. Obama, Kerry and Hillary would have you believe ISIS is here out of love to pick cabbage but here is the truth: The target and number one goal of the Islamic World is Big Satan and Little Satan. If you don’t know who Islam calls Big Satan, just look in the mirror.

Islam took over the Middle East centuries ago with scimitars but things have changed. Top supporters of Terrorism are the good friends of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, Iran & Arabia. Barack’s top aide, Valarie Jarrett, is Iranian; Hillary’s top Aide is Huma Abedin who was an assistant editor at a publication called the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs from 1996 until 2008.

When Huma Abedin was two years old, the family moved to Jidda, Saudi Arabia, where, with the backing of Abdullah Omar Nasseef, then the president of King Abdulaziz University, her father founded the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, a think tank, and became the first editor of its Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, which stated its mission as “shedding light” on minority Muslim communities around the world in the hope of “securing the legitimate rights of these communities.”

It turns out the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs is an Abedin family business. Huma was an assistant editor there between 1996 and 2008. Her brother, Hassan is a book-review editor at the Journal and was a fellow at the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies, where Nasseef is chairman of the board of trustees. Huma’s sister, Heba is an assistant editor at the Journal.

efi

Just who is Abdullah Omar Nasseef (above)? In his early years as the patron of the Abedins’ journal, Nasseef was the secretary-general of the Muslim World League, which Andrew McCarthy, the former assistant U.S. attorney who prosecuted the “Blind Sheik,” Omar Abdel Rahman, in the wake of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, claims “has long been the Muslim Brotherhood’s principal vehicle for the international propagation of Islamic supremacist ideology.”

Although it describes itself a nongovernment organization, the Muslim World League is effectively an arm of the Saudi Arabian government. As a lawsuit posted on the Philadelphia Enquirer website states “a full time employee of the Muslim World League testified as follows:

“Let me tell you one thing, the Muslim World League, which is the mother of IIRO (International Islamic Relief Organization) is a fully government funded organization. In other words, I work for the government of Saudi Arabia. I am an employee of that government.

efj

Second, the IIRO is the relief branch of that organization which means that we are controlled in all of our activities and plans by the government of Saudi Arabia.

Keep that in mind, please … I am paid by my organization which is funded by the [Saudi] government … the [IIRO] office, like any other office in the world, here or in the Muslim World League, has to abide by the policy of the government of Saudi Arabia. If anybody deviates from that, he would be fired; he would not work at all with IIRO or with the Muslim World League.” In my opinion, the IIRO is a small time version of the Clinton Foundation?

This brings us to John Kerry and his daughter who married Dr. Behrooz Vala Nahid. As part of the wedding preparations, Kerry went to a dinner party hosted by George Soros at his Manhattan penthouse where he undoubtedly met the best man Mahdi Zarif and also met his father, Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iranian Foreign Minister, who acted as the chief negotiator during nuclear talks, across the table from Kerry. Here is an image of Kerry and Zarif:

eff

“I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family, and grateful for how they have enriched my life,” Kerry said in the official statement. Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

Professor Jonathan Gruber, architect of National Romneycare, thinks we’re all stupid and I guess he’s right?

Here we are surrounded by foreign and domestic enemies hell-bent on doing us in. So what’s changed? What’s changed is the Iran Deal. For years Russian and North Korean Nuclear Scientists have been in Iran and they’re not there to pick cotton. The weapons at the disposal of Terrorists today should scare the pants off of you. Those who have no fear are more courageous than I am or they are fools. Years ago suitcase nuclear weapons went missing from the old USSR. Those nukes were of the 6 kiloton variety. The Hiroshima nuke was about 16 kilotons. It’s 2016 and we’re looking at fourth generation nuclear technology. You can bet there are fourth generation suitcase nukes in the hands of Terrorist organizations even as I write this blog. This image is a 100 ton explosion; what would a 6,000 ton explosion do to your city? The second image is a first generation suitcase nuke I took from an Iranian website. The third image is what I expect the enemy to have today, more like a briefcase!

efa

efb

Now think about the possibility of those weapons already being in America. Their value lies in their ability to be easily smuggled across borders, transported by means widely available, and placed as close to the target as possible.

The nuclear, biological and chemical threat exists along with a repertoire of lethal weapons that range from vehicles and sabotage to arson and drones. Don’t think our food and water supply is safe and don’t think Terrorists don’t have chemical weapons captured in Syria along with surface to air missiles captured in Libya.

efd

Don’t rule out larger drones in the hands of Terrorists and don’t expect the Islamic State to get a permit from the FAA to employ them, perhaps by the hundreds?

efe

Just like a gun free zone is music to Terrorist’s ears, so is a burn ban. This year Kansas had the largest wildfire in their history and last year Washington State had the largest wildfire complex in their history.

Maybe Obama, Hillary and Kerry have no imagination and no clue but I guarantee our enemies have great imagination, great skills running from computers to guerrilla warfare and they are focused on the Big Prize. My guess is that there are more than a million insurgents and paramilitary forces already on our soil equipped with real nasty surprises for us.

While Terrorists occupy every state, Obama, Kerry and Hillary fret about global warming and guns in the hands of law abiding citizens.

The Terrorists including more than a hundred released by Obama, who rejoined their old units, may wait until after the election before becoming too visible?

Terrorists don’t fear jet fighters or aircraft carriers; they fear Leaders who are on to them and willing to stop them at all costs. There is only one person and has only been one person from the beginning of the Presidential campaign who fits that description. The Terrorists all over the world fear Donald Trump and will do everything they can to keep him out of power or to end his life.

efh

The price of Freedom is eternal vigilance. If you see something, say something but say it to somebody who will do something about it. Clearly, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security are clueless and will remain that way until President Trump takes the Oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. As an Air Force Officer I took the Oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. That is not part of the Presidential Oath. God bless America

HEALTH INSURANCE STOCKS SOAR WHILE THE CONSTITUTION WEEPS

June 25, 2015

God Bless Associate Justice Antonin Scalia

ScaliaReagan

Nothing the Supreme Court does should surprise you! Again, Chief Justice John Roberts trampled on the Constitution on behalf of President Obama. In a landmark 6-3 ruling, the Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the Affordable Care Act’s insurance subsidies in every state.

One of the Justices who meant it when he swore to uphold and defend the Constitution, Justice Antonin Scalia, wrote the dissenting opinion, and characterized that Chief Justice John Roberts is a “defense of the indefensible.” And “rewrites the law.” He went on to write, “We should start calling this law SCOTUScare.”

He continued: “Rather than rewriting the law under the pretense of interpreting it, the Court should have left it to Congress to decide what to do about the Act’s limitation of tax credits to state exchanges.”

If the Court had ruled the other way, about 6 million people would have been at risk of losing their coverage. As it is, 100 million people will have to live with worthless insurance that they can’t afford. Last year 31% of Americans went without some form of healthcare because they could not afford the $150 copay or the $5,000 deductible.

Our leaders in the House and Senate along with President Obama and six Supreme Court Justices have decided the healthcare of 6 million people outweighs the other 300 million. The fact that the 6 million are not getting good care either notwithstanding.

Scalia, who read his dissent from the bench, was joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito in his dissent. Scalia took issue with the majority’s interpretation of the language within the Affordable Care Act. The law states that in order for people to qualify for health care subsidies, they need to be “enrolled in through an exchange established by the state.” The majority upheld that by “state,” the law referred to individual state exchanges or exchanges set up by the federal government. Otherwise, the majority opinion stated, state exchanges would drown in a “death spiral.”

Roberts wrote that “it is implausible that Congress meant the Act to operate in this manner.”

Scalia heavily criticized this reading, saying that the majority has erroneously interpreted the word “state” to also mean “federal government.” He called parts of the majority opinion “interpretive jiggery-pokery.”

“The Secretary of Health and Human Services is not a state,” he wrote. “Words no longer have meaning if an exchange that is not established by a state is ‘established by the state.'”

Scalia wrote that the justices who authored the majority displayed “no semblance of shame” in their opinion. His dissent is littered with jabs at his fellow justices. “Today’s interpretation is not merely unnatural; it is unheard of,” Scalia writes. He describes another aspect of the majority’s analysis to be “pure applesauce.”

King v. Burwell was one of the biggest legal challenges to Obamacare since 2012, when the Court upheld Obamacare’s individual mandate. In the conclusion of his dissent, Scalia said the Court got it wrong both times—and that it has shown bias toward the Obama administration’s policies.

“The cases will publish forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites,” Scalia wrote. “I dissent.”

God bless Associate Justice Antonin Gregory Scalia, the longest-serving justice currently on the Court. Scalia is the Senior Associate Justice. Appointed to the Court by President Ronald Reagan in 1986, Scalia has been described as the intellectual anchor for the originalist and textualist position in the Court’s conservative wing.

Scalia was born in Trenton, New Jersey, and attended public grade school and Catholic high school in New York City, where his family had moved. He attended Georgetown University as an undergraduate and obtained his Bachelor of Laws degree from Harvard Law School. After spending six years in a Cleveland law firm, he became a law school professor at the University of Virginia. In the early 1970s, he served in the Nixon and Ford administrations, first at minor administrative agencies, and then as an assistant attorney general. He spent most of the Carter years teaching at the University of Chicago, where he became one of the first faculty advisers of the fledgling Federalist Society. In 1982, he was appointed as a judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit by President Ronald Reagan.

In 1986, Scalia was appointed by Reagan to the Supreme Court to fill the associate justice seat vacated when Justice William Rehnquist was elevated to Chief Justice. Whereas Rehnquist’s confirmation was contentious, Scalia was asked few difficult questions by the Senate Judiciary Committee, and faced no opposition. Scalia was unanimously confirmed by the Senate, becoming the first Italian-American justice.

Scalia has served on the Court for nearly thirty years, during which time he has established a solidly conservative voting record and ideology, advocating textualism in statutory interpretation and originalism in constitutional interpretation.

NSA: An Open Letter to Ambassador Bolton

January 12, 2014

~~~~~~Bolton

Dear Ambassador Bolton: Try reasoning out your support for illegal activities. If NSA had immersed itself in protecting U.S. Citizens instead of spying on U.S. Citizens, things would have been much different. If NSA had aggressively ferreted out our enemies, 911 would not have happened. If the bureaucrats had not been asleep at the switch, the Khobar Towers Bombing would have been foiled, the USS Cole would not have been attacked, the Boston Bombing would have been stopped and North Korea would not be a Nuclear Power today. If NSA had not been obsessed with tapping your phone along with the phones of every member of Congress, every Federal Judge, every CEO, every Governor and every News Reporter, thousands of Americans would be alive today. Osama bin Laden would have been found and the whole Afghanistan War could have been avoided. Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Ambassador Chris Stevens would not have been hung out to die and be drug through the streets of Benghazi.

No, NSA is a dismal failure from every perspective. If NSA Analysts can read newspapers they know that Iranian books have been found discarded along the well worn path leading from the hole in the fence. They know that there are at least 20,000 illegal aliens in the U.S. from Terrorist Countries like Yemen, Somalia, Iran, Cuba, Sudan, Libya, Syria and North Korea. Oops, the Obama Administration has removed North Korea and Libya from their list of State Sponsors of Terrorism and Somalia and Yemen are not on their list. Are you beginning to detect a problem? Anyway, NSA has no idea where these terrorist are. NSA is also in the dark about the whereabouts of the 20,000 shoulder launched surface to air missiles missing from Libya or the Suitcase Nukes missing from the old USSR. Houston, we have a problem!

If NSA can spy on anybody anytime, anyplace, anywhere, meaning they can spy on all branches of United States Government, state and national.  They can also spy on corporate executives and learn about mergers and acquisitions long before anybody else.  They can know where shopping centers are planned or when dividends will be announced. With that information, the 17 intelligence agencies become the fourth branch of government more powerful than the other three branches combined.  Is that the America you want?  Is that what our Founding Fathers wanted?

When Ambassador Bolton and many others declare that illegal spying on them makes them feel safer, what are they thinking?  Our intelligence community can undermine our entire Judicial System. By Judge shopping, rouge Intelligence Agents can get permission to wiretap anybody including the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court or the Senate Majority Leader.  Does this not scare the daylights out of you?

Can anybody tell me that clever Intelligence Agents are not getting rich with all this information?  If they’re clever enough, they will get rich by leaking to relatives or friends.  Once given such power, do you believe the 17 Intelligence Agencies will EVER kill the goose that lays the golden eggs?

If you know everything about everybody, you can blackmail everybody!  If you believe the Holy Bible, as I do, you know that all have sinned and fallen short.  All means every member of Congress, every Judge, every member of the President’s Cabinet and even the President.

Oh, and about those 20 million illegal aliens, not strictly legal immigrants, undocumented U.S. Citizens or whatever you call them, what are they up to?

There are thousands of Hispanics in the United States legally on Work Visas or Student Visas or some other legal documents, God bless them. I am a 100% supporter of legal immigration and legal participants in the American Dream. NSA has no idea where the Illegal’s are or what they are up to: human trafficking, illegal drug distribution, criminal activity or what? Maybe that’s not their job but neither is spying on law abiding citizens! We all know that at least half of the illegal’s are receiving some form of welfare.

I am not aware of any of these activities taking place when I was an Intelligence Analyst at NSA in 1964 and 1965.  Before that I was an Analyst on the northern tip of Japan where I could see Russia from my dormitory window.  Wakkanai was probably the closest U.S. facility to Russia so we were on high alert following the assassination of President Kennedy.  I was sent outside the instillation to guard a transformer in four feet of snow.  I am proud of my service and thankful that I was not ordered to do anything illegal because I would have declined.  The government can take my money and my life but they can never take my integrity.

So what can I say to Ambassador John Bolton to convince him that trampling on the U.S. Constitution will NEVER make Americans safer? On the contrary, while the world is more dangerous than ever, Americans are more vulnerable than ever. Giving up freedom for security is a losing formula, always has been and always will be.

Unbridled Lawlessness in America

January 3, 2014

~~~~~~NSAUtah

If you discovered unbridled lawlessness and unconstitutional activity within a government agency, what would you do? Every government employee and member of the Armed Forces knows what will happen to them if they blow the whistle. Only the most courageous patriots who love America more than themselves will ever dare. If you blow the whistle on an agency, with a corrupt Agency Director, his or her Inspector General will inspect the allegations. The IG works for the Agency Director. Even if the Fraud, Waste & Abuse (FW&A) involves a low ranking individual and is substantiated by the IG, your career is over, O-V-E-R, done, finished! YOU will be investigated, harassed, isolated and totally destroyed. That’s why waste in the government is LEGENDARY!

If your allegations point to a high ranking individual or the Agency itself, they will NEVER be substantiated! Yes, the IG system cannot work and is itself FW&A. Only the Government Accountability Office (GAO) can be depended on the get the truth. The GAO works for Congress.

Unless you get your news from Good Morning America, Today, CNN or MSNBC, you realize that most of the Cabinet Members and Agency Directors are corrupt. The Attorney General sets in Criminal and Civil Contempt of Congress while the National Director of Intelligence and the Director of NSA have both lied to Congress.

Inexplicably many Americans actually think spying on them makes them safer, can you explain that to me? A fifth grader can read and understand the Fourth Amendment:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

NSA stand for “No Such Amendment?” For the first time in American History all three branches of government are complicit in violating the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution.

NSA is suppose to focus on foreign intelligence but I believe they have become obsessed with learning what size underwear you have on, what inside information CEO’s know, what horse will win the 5th race at Belmont, how Judges will rule in specific cases or where the next shopping center will be built? NSA has a dismal record when it comes to stopping the Boston Bombing, the USS Cole attack, the Khobar Towers bombing, the Benghazi Attack, 911, the Time Square Bombing and countless other catastrophes that cost countless American Lives. They spied on our allies instead of spying on our enemies. Maybe if they had put some effort into finding Osama bin Laden 12 years ago the war in Afghanistan would never have happened?

It has been estimated that there are at least 20,000 illegal aliens from terrorist countries in the United States. Where are they, what are they up to and when will they do their reprehensible mission? Suitcase Nukes and thousands of surface to air missiles cannot be accounted for. Where are they, who has them and what will they do with them? They could all be in the United States because our 92,000 miles of shoreline and our borders are porous.

So what is the focus of the once mighty United States? Silencing Edward Snowden! Even usually rational citizens have lost sight of the crooks and focused on the messenger. Nobody at NSA or IRS has been arrested. Witnesses to the Benghazi attack have been threatened. The Doctor who found bin Laden has now been charged with murder while America refuses to lift a finger to help him. Are there any Americans left with enough discernment to tell the difference between the good guys and the bad guys?

While you have been obsessed with Snowden and Duck Dynasty, your government spent $98,670.00 on an outhouse in Alaska, a million to heat the pavement at a bus stop, a $10,000 grant for a Pole Dancing Performance, $5,400,000.00 for booze and crystal for the State Department, $82,000 to monitor depression on Twitter and $562,000 for artwork for offices. Oh, did I mention the 1.5 million square foot billion dollar NSA Building in Utah?

Time to go back to Good Morning America, you might miss a great recipe for rattlesnake chili?

Letter the Orange County Register Refused to Publish

July 10, 2013

Dear Editor:

So many letter writers have based their arguments on how this land is made up of immigrants. Ernie Lujan for one, suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the people now in question aren’t being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry.

Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today’s American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented. Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.

They had waved good bye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.

Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. My father fought alongside men whose parents had come straight over from Germany , Italy , France and Japan. None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from. They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan . They were defending the United States of America as one people.

When we liberated France, no one in those villages were looking for the French-American or the German American or the Irish American. The people of France saw only Americans. And we carried one flag that represented one country. Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country’s flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into one red, white and blue bowl.

And here we are with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges. Only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country. I’m sorry, that’s not what being an American is all about. I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900’s deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.

And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty , it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill. I wouldn’t start talking about dismantling the United States just yet.

When God was Banned from Public Schools

October 25, 2010

I graduated from high school just in time in 1961. The following year some parents in New York sued because this nondenominational voluntary prayer was recited in schools each morning:

“Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers and our country. Amen.”

The Landmark Supreme Court case Engel V. Vitale in 1962 was a dark day in American History when six men established the “Separation of Church and State” law. I sincerely believe that not one single signer of the United States Constitution or Founding Father would agree with the six justices. The men, Earl Warren, Hugo Black, William O. Douglas, Tom C. Clark, John M. Harlan II and William J. Brennan, Jr. did something that the First Amendment prohibits Congress from doing. The First Amendment simply states:

” Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Clearly our Founding Fathers did not want the government to establish a state religion such as the Church of England where taxes went to support a state church. Church services were conducted in the United States Capitol Building and prayer was and is an integral part of our government from the time Christopher Columbus first set foot in America and named the land “Holy Savior” or “San Salvador.”

I guess just because Congress can make no law establishing or prohibiting the free exercise of religion doesn’t mean the Supreme Court can make no law because that is exactly what they did. Those men swore an oath on the Holy Bible to uphold and defend the Constitution. I took that same oath just as everyone who ever served in the Armed Forces; The difference is that I meant it. In the early days of our Nation’s History, you would find Bibles in every classroom and even the government paid to print Bibles. The Preamble to virtually every State Constitution gives thanks to Almighty God. Are all State Constitutions unconstitutional? Now God has been banned from our government and our schools, how’s that working?

Oddly enough, Supreme Court Justices have continued to enjoy the Federal Christmas Holiday.
