A Tale of Two Fired FBI Directors

May 25, 2017

WHAT’S UNDER THE ROCKS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE SWAMP

The collective memory of the Swamp critters including the totality of the Journalist Cartel is about one nanosecond when it comes to negative information about liberals.

When President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey a few months into his Presidency, the collective mainstream media had a meltdown. To this day, they are gnashing their teeth and renting their garments as investigators are investigating investigators.

Yet, President Clinton fired his FBI Director the day before the so-called Vince Foster suicide and the fawning Journalists didn’t even roll their eyes; imagine that!

Clinton told reporters there had been “serious questions” about Sessions’ “conduct and leadership.” He asked his attorney general, Janet Reno, to review Sessions’ tenure and the situation at the FBI. I don’t know if she had a secret meeting on an unlit airport tarmac during the middle of the night but according to Bill “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” Clinton, “She has reported to me in no uncertain terms that he can no longer effectively lead the Bureau and law enforcement community,”

I think Director Sessions was not sleazy enough to serve in the Clinton Administration! William Steele Sessions was born in Fort Smith, Arkansas, was an Eagle Scout and recipient of the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award from the Boy Scouts of America and served an enlisted tour in the United States Air Force before being commissioned and serving as an Officer. He received a BA and LL.B Degrees at Baylor University. He served as a federal judge before being appointed Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation by President Ronald Reagan. Sessions served as FBI director from 1987 to 1993, when he was dismissed by President Bill Clinton. Does that sound like somebody who would fit well in the Clinton Administration?

Strangely, Bill Clinton ordered park rangers to investigate the murder of Vince Foster instead of the FBI.

The FBI got involved anyway and issued reports that linked Hillary Clinton to Foster’s so-called suicide. This report mysteriously disappeared from the National Archives.

According to the former FBI agents of that time, they claimed that days before his death, First Lady Hillary Clinton ridiculed Foster in front of his peers. She said things like, “You have failed us.”

Vince Foster’s death was determined to have been a suicide by inquiries and investigations conducted by the United States Park Police, the Department of Justice, the FBI, the United States Congress, Independent Counsel Robert B. Fiske, and Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.

This is the United States of America, all these investigators can’t be wrong can they? Well, at least one WAS NOT WRONG. Kenneth Starr’s at-the-time lead investigator, US attorney Miguel Rodriguez, emphatically disagreed with Starr’s conclusion that Foster committed suicide, referring to photographs and medical testimony suggesting a second gunshot wound on Foster’s neck, evidence he asserts Starr suppressed. Concerning the cover-up, he wrote in his resignation letter, “As an ethical person, I don’t believe I could be involved in what they were doing.”

I spent 34 years in the Air Force flying combat missions and defending the Constitution and this is what I get? A corrupt government that spies on United States Citizens and our best Allies while U.S. citizens who get in their way are murdered like Vince Foster and Seth Rich!

Miguel Rodriguez was not alone in his condemnation of the phony Vince Foster Investigation. James Norman, former senior editor at Forbes Magazine, discussed and wrote about Foster having a Swiss bank account and possible espionage.

The comments of Patrick Knowlton, a grand jury witness who had been at the park where Foster’s body was found, were included as part of Starr’s Report over Starr’s objection. Judge John D. Butzner wrote to Judges Peter Fay and David Sentelle after Knowlton submitted a motion that his comments be included as part of an appendix to the final report, “I suspect that if we deny this motion we will be charged as conspirators in the cover-up,” and concluded “I suggest we let the motion and attachments speak for themselves.” Judge Fay wrote that Knowlton contradicted “specific factual matters and takes issue with the very basics of the report” filed by Starr. Knowlton’s comments were ordered included as part of the official report on September 26, 1997. Two days later, Starr filed a 9-page motion to appeal and asking that the comments by Knowlton not be included in the report. The next day, Starr’s motion was denied and Knowlton’s comments were included as part of the final official Report on the Death of Vincent W. Foster.

FBI Agent Lawrence Monroe interviewed Patrick Knowlton in April and May of 1994. Agent Monroe falsified Mr. Knowlton’s account of the events he reported he had witnessed in Fort Marcy Park. Agent Monroe was detailed to the office of regulatory Independent Counsel Robert W. Fiske, Jr.

Mr. Knowlton’s information refutes the official conclusions that Mr. Foster committed suicide in Fort Marcy Park, primarily because Mr. Knowlton is certain that no car fitting the description of Mr. Foster’s car was in the Fort Marcy lot approximately 70 minutes before Mr. Foster’s body was officially discovered, even though Mr. Foster was dead at the time. Agent Monroe covered up this and other facts Mr. Knowlton provided to Agent Monroe. Prior to 1996, Mr. Knowlton was unaware of this state of affairs and had assumed his information was irrelevant.

When he was provided copies of his interview reports by a reporter, Mr. Knowlton discovered that Agent Monroe had falsified his account, and his account of what he had witnessed at Fort Marcy and contradictory information from his FBI interview reports were published in a London newspaper.

On the same day that this newspaper reached American newsstands, October 24, 1995, the Office of Independent Counsel under Kenneth W. Starr prepared a subpoena for Mr. Knowlton to testify before the Whitewater grand jury in this Courthouse.

That subpoena was HELD FOR SERVICE FOR TWO DAYS, APPARENTLY TO ALLOW TIME FOR THE ASSEMBLY OF THE MEN WHO SUBSEQUENTLY HARASSED MR. KNOWLTON, and then served by FBI Agent Russell T. Bransford.

Beginning the same day Agent Bransford served Mr. Knowlton the secret grand jury subpoena, he was harassed by at least 25 men and Agent Bransford prior to testifying before the grand jury, and one man after testifying:

(a) Eleven or more men on October 26, 1995;

(b) Twelve or more men on October 27, 1995;

(c) Two or more men on October 28, 1995;

(d) FBI Agent Bransford on October 30, 1995; and

(e) One man on November 2, 1995.

The objects of the harassment were twofold, to:

(a) Intimidate and warn Mr. Knowlton in connection

with his grand jury testimony; and failing that,

(b) Destabilize Mr. Knowlton and discredit his

testimony before the grand jury.

This technique of subjecting a witness to an overwhelming campaign of harassment to intimidate and warn, and alternatively to destabilize and discredit the witness is known to federal intelligence and investigative agencies. Those who read my Social Media posts and Blogs know that I was an Intelligence Analyst at NSA more than 50 years ago.

On Wednesday, November 1, 1995 Mr. Knowlton testified before the Washington, DC Whitewater grand jury. Prosecutors questioning Mr. Knowlton during his grand jury appearance had been apprised prior to his appearance of his reports of being harassed by in excess of 25 men. The wrongdoers accomplished their object of discrediting him. Prosecutors did not believe Mr. Knowlton’s bizarre account of having been harassed, at one point asking him to “tell us a little bit about the alleged harassment.” Nor did prosecutors believe much of anything else Mr. Knowlton had to say.

On October 25, 1996 Mr. Knowlton filed a lawsuit in District Court against FBI Agents Russel T. Bransford and Lawrence Monroe (and others), alleging that these FBI agents are vicariously liable to Plaintiff for his damages under the law of civil conspiracy for inter alia, violation of 42 U.S.C. & sect; 1985, “Conspiracy to interfere with civil rights,” part (2), “Obstructing justice; intimidating party, witness, or juror.” The Plaintiff alleges he was intimidated in an attempt to obstruct justice in connection with Mr. Starr’s investigation into Mr. Foster’s death.

I think we all know what the chances of redress are from a Federal Court in the Swamp?

The 1994 Senate Banking committee was precluded by the limited jurisdiction of Resolution 229 from any independent exploration of the issue of how or where Mr. Foster died, and Senator D’Amato’s committee chose not to visit the issue of how or where Mr. Foster died. Therefore, save the 16 day US Park Police investigation, the only investigations into where or how Mr. Foster died were conducted by the good old FBI.

(1) First, a “preliminary investigation” in July of 1993;

(2) Second, under the auspices of regulatory

Independent Counsel Robert Fiske; and

(3) Thirdly, under the auspices of Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.

Because of the initial FBI conclusion of “no criminal activity” in July of 1993, FBI agents who worked for Mr. Fiske the first half of 1994 would necessarily have embarrassed the Bureau had they concluded otherwise. And once the agents reported to Mr. Fiske that there was no criminal activity, there could be no abandonment of the FBI’s repeated conclusion of suicide in Fort Marcy Park without a horrendous embarrassment to the FBI and possible criminal exposure to the FBI agents detailed to Mr. Fiske’s investigation, some of whom subsequently were also detailed to Mr. Starr’s investigation.

Given the role and the conclusion of the FBI in its first two investigations into the Foster death, it is manifest that various FBI agents and the FBI operated under a conflict of interest in the role the FBI played in Mr. Starr’s investigation of the Foster death.

Are you starting to get the picture of why Director Comey could not find that Hillary Clinton had committed a crime? Maybe I can draw you a picture? Hillary Clinton was not even under oath when FBI Agents questioned her and they made NO transcript or recording of the questioning.

FBI Director James Comey distrusted former Attorney General Loretta Lynch because he believed she and other top Justice Department officials had political motives to hinder or downplay the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, a new report reveals.

According to the New York Times, Comey deployed a “go-it-alone strategy” during the investigation into Clinton because he thought Lynch and other Obama appointees would give Clinton, who was in the midst of a presidential campaign, “political cover.”

For example, during a fall 2015 meeting between Lynch, Comey and Comey’s team of advisers, Lynch instructed Comey to no longer use the word “investigation” when publicly talking about the FBI’s investigation into Clinton. Instead, Lynch suggested Comey use the word “matter.”

“I guess you’re the Federal Bureau of Matters now,” one of Comey’s advisers quipped after the meeting.

In addition, just one day after announcing they had received a criminal referral in regards to the FBI’s investigation against Clinton, Lynch’s DOJ revised a public statement to retract the word “criminal.” The DOJ revised their statement to say they received a referral “related to the potential compromise of classified information” — no mention of anything criminal.

Clinton would later seize on the happenstance by insisting that the FBI’s investigation into her and her private email server was not a “criminal investigation” — despite the fact that the FBI was treating her “matter” just like any other criminal investigation.

Later, Comey’s suspicions deepened when the FBI intercepted a document that potentially proved Lynch’s allegiance to Clinton.

From the Times:

During Russia’s hacking campaign against the United States, intelligence agencies could peer, at times, into Russian networks and see what had been taken. Early last year, F.B.I. agents received a batch of hacked documents, and one caught their attention.

The document, which has been described as both a memo and an email, was written by a Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far, according to several former officials familiar with the document…

If Ms. Lynch announced that the case was closed, and Russia leaked the document, Mr. Comey believed it would raise doubts about the independence of the investigation.

And last June, just one day before investigators were scheduled to depose Clinton, Lynch met with Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, on the tarmac of Phoenix’s airport. That meeting, which many believe is where Lynch struck a deal with Clinton, was the final straw for Comey.

Just days later, he paraded himself in front of the nation to announce the FBI wouldn’t recommend criminal charges against Clinton, despite confirming that Clinton essentially broke the law and anyone else, given the evidence, would have been charged with a crime. Still, Comey excoriated Clinton during the press conference, noting her utter carelessness in dealing with classified information.

For Comey, the investigation was over, until in late Sept. 2016 the FBI discovered potentially new Clinton emails during the course of a separate criminal investigation into Anthony Weiner, husband to Huma Abiden, Clinton’s closest confidant.

Comey felt he needed to inform Congress of the newest revelation. After all, he promised to keep Congress informed. In the end, the new emails didn’t provide any new evidence and Comey again wrote Congress to inform them that their investigation into Clinton was over.

Clinton, her campaign and Democrats later blamed Comey’s late October letter to Congress as the reason she lost to Donald Trump, ignoring her own downfalls as a candidate and the downfalls of her campaign.

The fact that the Times would print any of this is unusual but I am sure it is still slanted.

Back to Mr. Knowlton, in his obstruction of justice fight against the government, he took extraordinary steps to establish his credibility including:

(1) Undergoing a polygraph examination;

(2) Undergoing an extensive psychiatric examination including psychological testing;

(3) Giving a sworn interview;

(4) Obtaining sworn Affidavits of other witnesses;

(5) Assembling and publishing documents and photographs of two of the men who harassed him along with a detailed description of the harassment he suffered in a 147 page Report;

(6) Avoiding affiliation with organizations known to be opposed to the Clinton administration;

(7) Avoiding obtaining funding from conservative organizations in order to avoid any appearance of political motivation or influence; and Filing his Complaint under seal of Court on October 24, 1996 because press reports of his claims on the eve of the presidential election would further undermine his credibility by the appearance of political motivation or influence.

The publicly available record Mr. Knowlton proffered 118 exhibits in support of his claim of an overall conspiracy, 100 of which are part of the publicly available record in the Foster case. These exhibits appear under headings in that filing which, when viewed cumulatively, fairly raise a strong inference that FBI agents obstructed justice prior to and during the time that the FBI investigated under regulatory Independent Counsel Robert Fiske.

As more of the records of the Foster death investigations are declassified and analyzed by concerned citizens, Mr. Knowlton’s position that the intimidation he suffered were overt acts in furtherance of an overall FBI conspiracy to obstruct justice will slowly gain more acceptance. For example, counsel was provided with a copy of the Report of Investigation by Medical Examiner, signed on July 20, 1993 by Dr. Donald Haut, the only MD to view Mr. Foster’s body in situ at Fort Marcy Park. This report found at the National Archives on July 17, 1997, was not part of the Senate Hearings Volumes made public in January of 1995 although it was found in a box indicating that it had been so released. The following is an excerpt of the entry appearing on that Medical Examiner’s Report under the heading NARRATIVE SUMMARY OF CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING DEATH: “…gunshot wound mouth to neck…”

This reported “mouth to neck” circumstance surrounding Mr. Foster’s death explains:

(1) Paramedic Richard Arthur’s sworn testimony: “What I saw is what I saw. …and I saw a small – what appeared to be a small gunshot wound here near the jawline. Fine, whether the coroner’s report says that or not, fine. I know what I saw.”

(2) Why many of the crime scene Polaroid photographs mysteriously vanished;

(3) Why the FBI falsely reported all 35 millimeter photographs were “underexposed” and that despite attempts by the FBI laboratory these photographs “were of limited value;”

(4) Press reports that Miguel Rodriquez resigned from his position with the OIC after he “insisted on conducting a painstaking review of the case [but was] met with stiff opposition from FBI agents assigned to Starr’s probe” — after he had the original Polaroid photographs “enhanced by a specialized lab outside the FBI;”

(5) A press report that a “photograph… reveals that Foster suffered trauma to the right side of his neck, just below the jawline… it has the appearance of a small caliber gunshot wound… a prosecutor on the staff of Kenneth Starr… has shown it to individuals ‘off the record’… this photo was never presented to the panel of four pathologists brought in by the Fiske investigation…”

(6) A press report that “Joe Purvis… said that he was told by a staff member of Ruebel’s Funeral Home in Little Rock that Foster had… an exit wound ‘the size of a dime’ close to the neck at the hairline;” and

(7) Why investigators stated that no autopsy X-rays were taken while inexplicably failing to investigate significant evidence the X-rays were in fact taken but mysteriously vanished.

The Medical Examiner’s report that there was a gunshot exit wound in Mr. Foster’s neck is inconsistent with the official conclusion that this neck wound “did not exist,” and is but one of numerous records in this matter which refute the official conclusions.

This is just one example of why government Whistleblowers are as scarce as hen’s teeth. Every government employee and member of the Armed Forces knows that if they report Fraud, Waste and Abuse, their career will abruptly end. Congress passed Whistleblower protection and later strengthened the protection but laws are less than meaningless. The Inspector General system not only does not work, it also cannot work in its present form. The IG works for the Military Commander or Agency Director and simply cannot substantiate any wrongdoing that will embarrass the boss or the organization or the government.

Mr. Knowlton did nothing to deserve this outrageous treatment at the hands of the FBI and the OIC. He did nothing to deserve being yanked into this FBI debacle, having his life turned upside down, and having to endure this fight for his reputation. Patrick Knowlton’s only “crime” was reporting to the authorities what he had seen at Fort Marcy Park — consistent with his understanding of his duties as a good citizen.

Mr. Knowlton’s position that the intimidation he suffered was overt acts in furtherance of an overall FBI conspiracy to obstruct justice should be common knowledge but government atrocities are only remembered for a nanosecond unless they shed light on wrongdoing by conservatives.

I could go on and on but I believe President Donald J. Trump and his handpicked Administration represents the very last stand for America. Not a single one of the other Presidential Candidates had any chance of draining the swamp. No candidate in the future will have the audacity to confront the crooked media, lazy bureaucrats or status quo politicians.

God save America

ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC

July 28, 2016

ef

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.

efg

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

efc

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

National Security 101

July 7, 2016

ns4

The American People are not generally knowledgeable about the laws regarding Classified Information. I was not only a Fighter Pilot and Provisional Wing Commander in the Air Force, I was also an Intelligence Analyst at the National Security Agency and graduate of the Air War College. Please permit me to unravel the astonishing FBI Director’s nonsense you watched on TV.

The overwhelming majority of Security Clearances are at the Secret level and most classified information is Secret or lower. Unauthorized disclosure of Secret information would cause “serious damage” to national security.

ns5

I was at a Fighter Wing where only two people on the base had a Top Secret Clearance, the Chief of Intelligence and myself. There are many laws and regulations regarding safeguarding classified information such as the Espionage Act of 1917. Therefore, it was necessary for me to perform many additional duties to protect our very few Top Secret Documents. According to US Code, “Top Secret shall be applied to information, the unauthorized disclosure of which reasonably could be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security that the original classification authority is able to identify or describe.”

ns3

You learned that the FBI found information on Secretary Clinton’s emails that was above Top Secret. It was so sensitive that even members of Congress were not authorized to view it. As high as a Top Secret Clearance is, it’s not high enough to authorize the holder of the clearance to even walk through the doors at NSA, CIA or most of the 15 other Intelligence Agencies.

I do not believe even the Secretary of State would be able to enter the Communications Center at the U.S. Department of State, it is likely run by NSA or an outside agency.

ns1

But even if a person has a Security Clearance above Top Secret, that person cannot have access to any information unless he or she has A NEED TO KNOW. When I was a young Airman I had an operation on my shoulder in an Air Force Hospital in Japan. Because I had a Security Clearance above Top Secret, a Full Colonel was in the operating room and by my bedside during the operation and my recovery just in case I revealed something classified under sedation. If I had revealed classified information, the doctors and nurses would have been briefed and security clearances would have been run on every one of them. National Security is taken seriously outside the cozy confines of a few DC politician’s offices.

If Ms Clinton did nothing else except give thousands of emails to her lawyers for review, she committed a felony. Even if her lawyers had active US Security Clearances above Top Secret, they did not have the need to know information that could cause exceptionally grave damage to national security. I doubt that they had those clearances anyway!

As President Obama has so forcefully stated, “This is not a Reality Show!” Indeed, when Barack Obama, Loretta Lynch, James Comey and Hillary Clinton play loosey-goosey with national security, people die. Can we the people have any expectation that they protect the Nuclear Launch Codes or War Plans any better than the Presumptive Democratic Nominee for President protected national secrets on her private server?

ns

If Ms Clinton’s malfeasance only merits a wink and a nod, what would she have to do to elicit prosecution? Is Obama, Lynch, Comey and Hillary the best we can do? Is their lack of performance okay with you because they’re not bombastic and they love our enemies? Don’t we owe more to our men and women on the front lines of the War Against Global Terrorism?

Put Barney Fife on the Clinton Email Case!

May 22, 2016

bf

During March 2015 it became publicly known that Hillary Clinton, during her tenure as United States Secretary of State, had exclusively used her family’s private email server for official communications, rather than official State Department email accounts maintained on federal servers. Those official communications included thousands of emails, some containing information above Top Secret. The Government had to know Secretary Clinton was using her private server six years earlier than it became known to the man on the street! It took the United States about four years to win World War II, what has the United States Government been doing since 2009? The FBI has about 14,000 FBI Special Agents with 20,000 support professionals. The Department of Justice has 114,000 personnel and consumes 27 billion taxpayer dollars a year.

I suggest to you that Barney Fife could have investigated, prosecuted and locked up anybody guilty of these allegations years ago! When does foot dragging become a crime? We are witnessing World Class Foot Dragging in the First Degree! Knowledge of the Watergate break-in was like tearing a label off a mattress compared to this email scandal involving National Security. What General Petraeus did to be threatened with prosecution was like having an expired parking meter in comparison!

The Federal Laws and protocols criminally violated by this act including the deletion of about 32,000 emails is profoundly unfathomable! Yet, the FBI and Department of Justice is acting like our 17 Intelligence Agencies when they could not break into an iPhone.

bf2

I know many in the government believe as Professor Gruber believes that We the People are stupid! We are not so stupid that we cannot understand when OUR government is obfuscating, overcomplicating, muddying the water, confounding, mystifying and otherwise clouding the issue when their darling is involved! Are we to believe that the Secretary of State, who is fourth in the line of succession to be President of the United States, can’t tell Top Secret information unless it is marked Top Secret? Come on folks, we’re NOT THAT STUPID!

Former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Michael T. Flynn, former United States Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and former deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency Michael Morell have all said that it is likely that foreign governments were able to access the information on Clinton’s server. Michael Hayden, former Director of the National Security Agency, Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence, and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency said “I would lose all respect for a whole bunch of foreign intelligence agencies if they weren’t sitting back, paging through the emails.”

Clinton’s server was configured to allow users to connect openly from the Internet and control it remotely using Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Services. It is known that hackers in Russia were aware of Clinton’s non-public email address as early as 2011. Server records also show that, using a computer in Serbia, a hacker had scanned Clinton’s Chappaqua server at least twice, in August and in December 2012. It was unclear whether the hacker knew the server belonged to Clinton, although it did identify itself as providing email services for clintonemail.com. During 2014, Clinton’s server was the target of repeated intrusions originating in Germany, China, and South Korea.

On August 10, 2015, the IC inspector general said that two of the 40 emails in the sample were “Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information” and subsequently given classified labels of “TK” (for “Talent Keyhole”, indicating material obtained by spy satellites) and NOFORN. One is a discussion of a news article about a U.S. drone strike operation. The second, he said, either referred to classified material or else was “parallel reporting” of open-source intelligence, which would also be classified. According to an unnamed source, a secondary review by the CIA and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency endorsed the earlier inspectors general findings concluding that the emails (one of which concerned North Korea’s nuclear weapons program) were “Top Secret” when received by Clinton through her private server in 2009 and 2011.

The IC inspector general issued another letter to Congress on January 14, 2016. In this letter he stated that an unnamed intelligence agency had made a sworn declaration that “several dozen emails [had been] determined by the IC element to be at the CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET, and TOP SECRET/SAP levels.” Other intelligence officials added that the several dozen were not the two emails from the previous sample and that the clearance of the IC inspector general himself had to be upgraded before he could learn about the programs referenced by the emails.

On January 29, 2016, the State Department announced that 22 documents from Clinton’s email server would not be released because they contained highly classified information that was too sensitive for public consumption. At the same time, the State Department announced that it was initiating its own investigation into whether the server contained information that was classified at the time it was sent or received.

Does this make you question our justice system? Does this appear to be anything approaching Equal Justice? The wheels of justice grind slow but do they normally go slower than the movement of tectonic plates? Glaciers move faster than the FBI and Justice Department have moved on the Clinton Scandal. Maybe the investigation should be contracted out to Mayberry PD?

ARE YOU OBLIVIOUS TO THE PERIL WE FACE?

Terrorist Attacks against American interests began when George Washington was President when the Islamic Barbary Pirates repeatedly ambushed U.S. merchant ships transiting the Mediterranean Sea. During the intervening 235 years our government has grown exponentially and created a huge intelligence community.

The best I can determine, our intelligence organizations are very methodical. They spy on United States Senators, especially members of the Intelligence Committee. They spy on Corporate CEOs, Governors, Tea Party leaders, stock traders, billionaires and law abiding citizens of all socioeconomic levels. I’m just not sure how they miss every single terrorist attack? How did they fail to see the fall of Yemen or the rise of the Islamic State?

NSA alone occupies a building larger than the Pentagon outside DC and just built a 1.5 million square foot Intelligence Community Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative Data Center in Utah. Just the electricity for that building will cost $40 million a year. Hey Al Gore, I now know what causes global warming! According to Edward Snowden, the project was initially known as the Massive Data Repository but NSA felt the name was too “creepy” and changed it. I know it is hard for football fans to comprehend the magnitude of the Utah facility. It is 15 times the size of MetLife Stadium, home to the New York Giants and Jets.

NSABlog

Along with the Utah facility, NSA just opened its nearly 700,000 square foot Texas Cryptologic Center in San Antonio and has other centers in places like Hawaii. Together they are seven times the size of the Pentagon. How big is the Pentagon you ask? The U.S. Capitol could fit into just one of the building’s five sides, and with 5,100,000 square feet, it has twice the office space of the Empire State Building. The Pentagon has twice as many restrooms as it needs because it was built with separate restrooms for whites and blacks along with separate cafeterias.

Remember, NSA is just one of the Federal Intelligence organizations, here is a list:

Office of the Director of National Intelligence
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)
National Security Agency (NSA)
National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)
National Reconnaissance Office (NRO)

Homeland Security Drug Enforcement Administration, Office of National Security Intelligence (DEA/ONSI)
Department of State Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR)
Department of the Treasury Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence (TFI)

Just the coffee consumed in these bureaucracies would float an Aircraft Carrier. Do you feel safe? The Director of National Intelligence and the Director of NSA testified to Congress that their work had foiled several terrorist attacks. When pressed for specifics, they told Congress they would get back to them. In the end, I don’t believe they could come up with a single one, certainly none of these:

Do you ever wonder why we need all these intelligence agencies while the rest of the Defense Department is being gutted and demolished? Why we have behemoth facilities while we scrap the weapon most feared by the Islamic State, the A-10 Thunderbolt II affectionately called the Warthog? Why is it more important to spy on law abiding United States Citizens than to spy on our sworn enemies? The cost of Gitmo seems to be an issue but the sky is the limit when it comes to other facilities and welfare for the illegal masses.

The other Super Power, Russia, has these four Intelligence Organizations:

Federal Security Service (FSB)
Federal Protective Service (FSO)
Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU)
Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR)

Surrounded by hostile countries vowing to end their existence, Israel has these:

Mossad
Shin Bet
Aman
Police of Israel

Before the United States of America cuts one more combat unit or scraps one more tactical or strategic weapon system, can we consolidate our Intelligence efforts and focus on the bad guys or is that idea too radical? More than 50 years ago I was an Intelligence Analyst and my Air War College Diploma is dated December 22nd, 1976. I didn’t just fall off a turnip wagon. I expect much better leadership from my government at all levels than I am receiving. It would also be nice if the smiley faces on Broadcast Journalism would start reporting the news and alerting citizens of the danger for a change. I know securing the border after probably 100,000 to 2 million terrorists are already here is like closing the barn door after the horse escaped but it would be a start. We have to start someplace or EVERY man, woman and child in America will become a refugee if we are not killed first. Mayday, mayday, mayday!

IS OBAMA A LOYAL AMERICAN?

December 26, 2014

ObamaISIS

 

Before I became a fighter pilot and was trusted to command a multinational Provisional Wing, I trained as an Intelligence Analyst. I am sometimes disappointed because people don’t see what I see until I realize that very few are able to analyze diverse information to reach a conclusion. That ability and my experience in the field and at a major national security organization gives me an advantage. I am sharing my analysis of the data available to anyone who will spend time to look. Don’t take my word, do your due diligence and please keep aware and awake.

Without Obama, our military could still defeat ISIS even after the Democrats gutted our Defense Department and Obama fired our best Generals. The U.S. Armed forces are weaker and smaller than they have been since before WWII. I am convinced all this is part of Barack Obama’s grand plan as he seemingly prefers ISIS over Americans. Maybe I can help you see this? After six years in office, American Citizens still know less about Barack Obama than any other President in History. It is a sad state of affairs that most citizens don’t even know what they don’t know. Barack Obama was endorsed by the Communist Party; do you know of any other President receiving such an endorsement? Wikipedia published an exhaustive list of Obama endorsements for 2012 but somehow skipped over the Communist Party. I demanded that the far left leaning Wikipedia remove the “Gene McVay” entry because it was vandalized and distorted. Anybody can edit the ever-changing website but there are super editors who make sure that THEIR agenda remains prominent. Maybe that’s why no reputable university or high school will allow students to use Wikipedia as a reference.

Do you know of any other President who had his college records sealed? Then there is the Religion controversy. Apparently Barack and his family have been searching for a Christian Church to attend in D.C. for six years now. Each time the president has stepped into an African American church in the District, about six times, his visit has been preceded by stern warnings from pastors to their flocks to be courteous and respectful in the hopes of wooing the first family. But pastors and members of the churches he has attended have resigned themselves to the fact that Obama might visit but most likely won’t join. To my knowledge Obama’s spiritual upbringing was Muslim and his adult life in Chicago was spent listening to Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s fiery sermons that were incessantly played by media during the 2008 campaign. You may recall his quotes about God damning America and his accusation that the U.S. government used HIV “as a means of genocide against people of color.” But the majority of Americans likely don’t know much about Wright’s personal background either.

Some might contend that there’s no need to study Wright further; that the intense and seemingly anti-American rhetoric that was observed on television sets across America tells us all we need to know about one of the nation’s most controversial pastors. However, considering the elevated level of influence Wright had in President Barack Obama’s life, understanding the figure helps to shed further light on the president’s personal beliefs and ideals.

The goals of Black Liberation Theology are to destroy white society, America and the so-called white church (traditional Christianity). Black Liberation Theology is, of course, the doctrine of Obama’s “church” in Chicago, as was declared by Reverend Jeremiah Wright. The Reverend James Cone who was born in Fordyce, Arkansas in 1938, is the founder of Black Liberation Theology.

BLT

Black Liberation Theology is a branch of the black theology of Black Nationalism, which is a 100-year-old mass movement of several different religious sects, based on black identity, that variously present themselves as Jewish, Christian and Muslim, though they are not orthodox in any of these religions. Black Liberation Theology was derived in large part from the theology of the Nation of Islam in the 1960’s, now headed by Louis Farrakhan. The Nation of Islam is not orthodox Islam, but a cult-like, black sect. Black Liberation Theology is designed to be more sophisticated than the theology of the Nation of Islam, in order to better appeal to black urban professionals, and to infiltrate the hateful concepts of Black Nationalism more readily into the black churches and black community.

The racial basis of the beliefs of the Black Nationalist movement are the mirror image of racist white identity movements such as the Nazi Christian Identity movement and the Ku Klux Klan. The founder of the Black Nationalist mass movement, Marcus Garvey, mandated as far back as the 1920’s that blacks should form groups that emulate white supremacy groups, such as the KKK and Nazi Party and that is the origin of the Nazi-like racial concepts of Black Liberation Theology and other black sects that can be seen as the heirs of the Garvey movement. Garvey prophesied that one day the black race would produce their own “Hitler.”

Black Liberation doctrine holds that any and all actions are justified in destroying the white enemy and America. If you are wondering why Obama always seems to take the side of black thugs and criminals, review these selections from the first two books by James H. Cone, who first canonized Black Liberation Theology:

“Oppressors never like to hear the truth in a socio-political context defined by their lies. That was why a Black Theology of Liberation was often rejected as racism in reverse by many whites, particularly theologians. For example, Father Andrew M. Greeley referred to my perspective on black theology as a “Nazi mentality,” “a theology filled with hatred for white people and the assumption of a moral superiority of black over white.”’ White reactions to black theology never disturbed me too much, because Malcolm X had prepared me for them. “With skillful manipulating of the press,” said Malcolm, “they’re able to make the victim look like the criminal and the criminal look like the victim.”’

“Because white theology has consistently preserved the integrity of the community of oppressors, I conclude that it is not Christian theology at all.’ When we speak about God as related to human­kind in the black-white struggle, Christian theology can only mean black theology, a theology that speaks of God as related to black liberation. If we agree that the gospel is the proclamation of God’s liberating activity, that the Christian community is an oppressed community that participates in that activity and that theology is the discipline arising from within the Christian community as it seeks to develop adequate language for its relationship to God’s liberation, then black theology is Christian theology.”

“Black theology will not spend too much time trying to answer its critics, because it is accountable only to the black community. Refusing to be separated from that community, black theology seeks to articulate the theological self-determination of blacks, providing some ethical and religious categories for the black revo­lution in America. It maintains that all acts which participate in the destruction of white racism are Christian, the liberating deeds of God. All acts which impede the struggle of black self­ determination-black power-are anti-Christian, the work of Satan.”

“That white America has issued a death warrant for being black is evident in the white brutality inflicted on black persons. Though whites may deny it, the ghettos of this country say otherwise. Masters always pre­tend that they are not masters, insisting that they are only doing what is best for society as a whole, including the slaves. This is, of course, the standard rhetoric of an oppressive society. Blacks know better. They know that whites have only one purpose: the destruction of everything which is not white.”

“With the assurance that God is on our side, we can begin to make ready for the inevitable-the decisive encounter between black and white existence. White appeals to “wait and talk it over” are irrelevant when children are dying and men and women are being tortured. We will not let whitey cool this one with his pious love ethic but will seek to enhance our hostility, bringing it to its full manifestation. Black survival is at stake here, and we blacks must define and assert the conditions necessary for our being-in-the­-world. Only we can decide how much we can endure from white racists. And as we make our decision in the midst of life and death, being and nonbeing, the role of black theology is to articulate this decision by pointing to the revelation of God in the black liberation struggle.”

“Black thinkers are in a different position. They cannot be black and identified with the powers that be. To be black is to be committed to destroying everything this country loves and adores. Creativity and passion are possible when one stands where the black person stands, the one who has visions of the future because the present is unbearable. And the black person will cling to that future as a means of passionately rejecting the present. The black experience is the feeling one has when attacking the enemy of black humanity by throwing a Molotov cocktail into a white-owned building and watching it go up in flames. We know, of course, that getting rid of evil takes something more than burning down buildings, but one must start somewhere.”

Obama wrote this often misquoted passage in his book:
“In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope.”

Is a picture of our President starting to emerge? Can you name President Obama’s close friends beyond Valarie Jarrett, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, a host of Hollywood celebrities and the liberal media?

As President Obama travels around the world bowing to Muslims and criticizing the United States, our Military and our Police, he makes life much more difficult for our police, our military and our allies, especially Israel.

Many veterans will be astonished by this figure from House Report 113-113 – DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE APPROPRIATIONS BILL, 2014. The total number of U.S. Military active duty men and women at the end of FY 2014 (September 30, 2014) was 1,401,560. That number is smaller than the population of San Antonio, Texas. Our Marine Corps is down to 197,300 from 309,771 in 1969. Our Air Force is down to 329,460 from 905,000 in 1968. Our Navy is down to 322,700 from 691,126 in 1969.

During WWII the Army strength was 8,266,373 including the Air Corps, the Navy had 3,319,586 military personnel and the Marines numbered 469,925 bringing the total active duty military strength to 12,055,884.

The terrorist threat is not like the Axis Powers of WWII but in many ways, ISIS is a superior threat to our homeland. Although many of you think you are getting REAL news from the Liberal Alphabet channels, you are sadly mistaken. You are mostly getting recipes for gingerbread cookies and meaningless chitchat. There are a million distractions in your life to funnel your attention away from what is important. Jesus said, “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.” Are you too busy to watch and pray?

For the first time in 2,000 years there is not a single Christian in Mosul. You might look up from your latte and ask, “Where is Mosul?” It’s just the second largest city in Iraq and the capital of the Nineveh Province in northern Iraq. Mosul exists on both sides of the Tigris River along with the ancient Assyrian city of Nineveh. The city is the historic center of the Church of the East. Christianity spread from Mosul as the church became the world’s largest Christian church in terms of geographical extent. The Church of the East had dioceses stretching from the Mediterranean to China and India. The tombs of several Old Testament prophets including Jonah are located in Mosul.

JohahTomb

 

THE TOMB OF JONAH, SACRED TO CHRISTIANS, JEWS AND MUSLIMS, BEFORE AND AFTER BEING DESTROYED BY ISIS.

Today things have changed in Mosul, Christian husbands have been brutally murdered and their wives have been sold into slavery while their children have been beheaded and their heads displayed on spikes in city parks. This is not Apartheid, it is genocide. This is not hungry children; it is horrifically tortured and murdered innocent Christian Children. Is it still legal to say the word “Christian” in America or is it banned? ISIS has been busy killing while Obama has been busy golfing.

Jordan is overrun with refugees fleeing the horror but Jordan will likely be overrun by ISIS too. If you think Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza according to their charter, is a problem, wait until they are joined by ISIS.

One of Barack Obama’s first actions as President in 2009 was to release Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi from a U.S. detention camp. Today Abu is the leader of ISIS and the true heir to the throne of Osama bin Laden. Do you remember what Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi said when he was released? The ISIS leader said, “I’ll see you guys in New York.” Do you remember what Obama and Biden bragged over and over again? “Osama is dead and General Motors is alive.” Really? Of all the GM cars sold in the U.S., 70% are made overseas. Now that GM is run by the unions GM recognizes that they can’t compete as long as the actual cost of union labor is $70 an hour and GM is strapped with tons of regulations and taxes that overseas competitors don’t have.

CampBucca

CAMP BUCCA

When Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was in U.S. custody at Camp Bucca, he concealed his true nature. That chilling parting statement upon his release could become a battle cry for ISIS. There have been repeated threats about targeting various cities and bridges in America and how can we doubt these will come true? Americans are flocking to join ISIS and I fear that not all are headed to the Middle East. In addition, is it possible that members of ISIS and their sympathizers have been unable to locate the well worn path leading to and from the hole in the fence? At least 20 million illegal aliens found that hole.

On the rare occasions when ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is seen in public, his entourage is somewhere between that of a president and a mobster. Before al-Baghdadi appears in a Mosque, armed guards close the whole area. The women are sent upstairs to the women’s section to pray. Everyone is warned not to take photos or videos. It is a tense nerve-racking atmosphere.

al-Baghdadi

When Baghdadi finally shows up wearing black from head to toe, the guards start shouting, “Allah akbar! Allah akbar!” Then everybody is forced to swear allegiance to Baghdadi. Even after Baghdadi leaves, no one is allowed to leave the mosque for another 30 minutes. He has the working mentality of a Mafioso and expects his soldiers to be highly disciplined. He is known to be very organized and a proficient war planner.

Acquaintances of the mastermind behind ISIS, who now controls a self-proclaimed caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria, say he grew up studious, pious and calm. He was introverted, without many friends and was always known for being so quiet you could hardly hear his voice.

Al-Baghdadi’s family was not wealthy, but two of his uncles worked for Saddam Hussein’s security forces. This meant they would have had some status and connections which would have inspired a certain reverence or fear in the community.

Following his release from Camp Bucca, Baghdadi resumed his militant activities. While in prison an umbrella group of terrorist factions, including Al-Qaeda, had formed the Islamic State in Iraq, which al-Baghdadi joined. He was appointed the organization’s leader in May 2010. From the beginning, the Islamic State in Iraq had vast ambitions and a different agenda from Al-Qaeda even causing it to dump the Al-Qaeda flag.

Al-Monitor dates the split from the group’s gradual disengagement from Al-Qaeda leaders in Afghanistan and its search for separate funding sources. “Then, in mid-2013, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announced the establishment of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham now commonly known as ISIS and rebelled against the orders of Ayman al-Zawahri, the leader of the international Al-Qaeda organization. Al-Zawahri wanted ISIS to be only active in Iraq and have Jabhat al-Nusra be Al-Qaeda’s representative in Syria.” Al-Monitor, the pulse of the Middle East, would not be a good source for Americans to read to learn about interesting recipes and watch viral videos of siblings rubbing whipped cream on each other’s faces. Here is a recent Al-Monitor headline: “Islamic State Reaps Profits from Organ Trafficking.” I’m thinking there is too much going on in America for Wolf Blitzer, Scott Pelley, Anderson Cooper, Brian Williams, Diane Sawyer, Ann Curry, Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell or Chris Matthews to notice what is taking place in the world?

One ISIS defector said he was with Baghdadi at the tense time of the break with al-Nusra, the Al-Qaeda affiliate working inside Syria. He recalls the paranoia and mistrust in those meetings, held somewhere in the nebulous border area of Syria and Turkey. Baghdadi met with men in a separate room in a trailer near the Turkish border and would only introduce himself to top-level commanders. The minor ones, he did not introduce himself to. No one was sure which person in the room was really Baghdadi, he liked to keep people confused and off balance. Contrast that with President Obama who publicly announces firm dates for troop withdrawals. The administration does not bat an eye as they reveal their much-cherished secrets to make their man look good, heroic, decisive and strong. The leak that displayed all these attributes was the one that said the president personally approves the assassinations of terrorists abroad. He gives his okay, and the bad guys (some U.S. citizens) are dispatched via missiles from drones. At the same time, the Democrats gnash their teeth over waterbording terrorists at Gitmo, an advanced interrogation technique likely even demonstrated on our own troops during survival training.

All administrations leak what they want when they want. Occasionally, some patriot screams something about national security and the Constitution, but the republic somehow survives and the secret is usually only a secret to the American people, not to the enemy. This was undoubtedly the case when it was disclosed that a computer worm was released to wreak havoc with the Iranian nuclear program. The Iranians were not playing golf and were on to it quickly.

Once upon a time, the buck stopped at the desk of the President. For the longest time, a polite fiction distanced the president from what, after all, is murder, and it helped somewhat in protecting him. Deniability is always a fiction, but it provides some space between the president and his orders, and does not plaster the presidential face on an act of extreme — and possibly illegal — violence. With NSA, CIA, DIA, AFISRA, MI, MCIA, ONI, NCIS, OICI, I&A, CGI, FBI, INR, TFI and DEA/ONSI employing hundreds of thousands of intelligence personnel, is it a little ridiculous for the President to claim he learns information from the local news? Sadly, millions of Americans believe that lie thinking they are as informed as the President. I just checked a big story on the TODAY SHOW, it is: “Obama in a tiara! President dons a crown for photo with Girl Scouts.” Maybe most Americans simply don’t care. Perhaps this quote from Martin Niemöller, a popular Protestant Minister who opposed the Nazis, applies:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
***
As ISIS gains more credibility and support, President Obama keeps reiterating that, “We will not be sending U.S. troops back into combat in Iraq.” Can you imagine Dwight Eisenhower giving comfort to the enemy by disclosing strategic information as important as whether or not the U.S. would employ ground troops? During WWII the U.S. even had phantom Divisions to fool the enemy. At one point the U.S. tried to make the Germans think General Patton was leading a large Division that did not exist. Are the token Generals loyal to Obama the only Generals left in command? The Keystone Kops could do a better job of defending America!

The top priority of the Obama Administration is not defending America, it is taking legal guns away from law abiding citizens and granting amnesty to untold millions of illegal aliens from as far away as Yemen, Somalia and North Korea. He also seems intent on bankrupting our country and destroying our healthcare system.

Thank you for stopping by, I covet your comments.

Has America Lost Both Freedom and Security?

June 20, 2013

I hate to be the one to break this news to low information voters like Gretchen Carlson, Brian Kilmeade and Bill O’Reilly but, the United States no longer enjoys FREEDOM or SECURITY.

Arming Syrian Cannibals makes as much sense as giving F-16’s to Egypt? Americans are warned about visiting Egypt now!

What will we think of next, scrapping 1/3 of our nuclear weapons putting us at a disadvantage against Russia, North Korea and Iran?

Legalizing illegal aliens including about 20,000 from terrorist countries like Yemen, Somalia, Iran, Syria and Libya?

NSA knows what you’re wearing and eating but don’t know where those 20,000 illegal aliens are. NSA also don’t know and don’t care where the other 11 to 20 million illegals are. NSA don’t know where Russia’s missing suitcase nukes are hidden or the 20,000 missing Libyan surface-to-air missiles. NSA don’t know what happened to Saddam’s weapons. It looks to me like Saddam trucked his Chemical Weapons across the border to Syria in the middle of the night?

Our borders are not secure and building another great wall won’t help at all. It will only become a tourist attraction. How did that Maginot Line work for France? The FBI admits we’re using Drones in the United States but we certainly are not using them to secure our Borders and 92,000 miles of Coastline.

The sad story is that we are paying an exorbitant price for security but it is money down the drain. If those Russian Nukes are not already in the United States it is only because they don’t want them here. Those 20,000 invaders have not attacked yet because they are waiting to see how long it will take our government to destroy America with Political Correctness?

That warm fuzzy feeling you get when TSA strip searches grandmothers and pats down little girls may just be heartburn?
