Perspective on Terrorism from an Old Man

June 4, 2017

Do you think Merkel, May and Macron strike fear in the Jihadists?

They are a dream come true for the Islamic State.

al Baracki welcomed Jihadists to America while Federal Judges, Democrats, GOP leaders, Corrupt Media & Snowflakes cheered.

I am a highly trained former Intelligence Analyst so I feel compelled to connect the dots for Americans who think real Journalists still exist in the World.

For a generation, American kiddies have been dumbed down and taught to shut up and never think for themselves. Most think “Terrorist Attack” is a trendy new Rock Band.

Political Correctness is more important than National Security. That means little girls and grandmothers should be fondled while Jihadists men wearing burka disguises face no scrutiny.

Diversity is more important than National Heritage or National Security.

Have you heard about all the terrorist attacks in Moscow during the riots and gay pride parades? Have you seen the “no go” areas in the Muslim neighborhood of Moscow?

You have not because Vladimir will not put up with any foolishness. You will never hear about a Federal Judge countermanding a Vladimir Putin Order. Let the absurdity of an Activist Pajama Boy Federal Judge usurping National Security responsibilities of an elected President and Commander in Chief sink in!

What if a Democratic Federal Judge in San Francisco decided to block the Normandy Invasion on a whim while sipping a caramel latte and watching a Comedian tossing around a bloody severed head of the Commander in Chief?

The whole Democratic Party, Corrupt Media, Hollywood and 30% of the Republican Party have been radicalized or they are stark raving bona-fide nut jobs.

The Gitmo murderers had better healthcare than our combat veterans and most hard working American Citizens. They had sports facilities and all the amenities but they were denied their right to kill Infidels for a period of time. Don’t cry for them, they have been released back to the battlefield. I don’t know if the special Muslim, who deserted with honor and distinction, went with them or not. We don’t hear anything about Bowe Bergdahl but I am acutely aware that Lieutenant Clint Lorance is still in prison for protecting his troops.

If our government and the European leaders have not been giving aid and comfort to the enemy, exactly what have they been doing?

Millions of Americans would vote for Alec Baldwin, Kathy Griffin, Chuck Todd or Joe Scarborough for Commander in Chief.

In spite of a National Tantrum, Commander in Chief Trump is prosecuting the Global War on Terrorism while Congress and Federal Judges try to stuff him in a Straight Jacket.

It looks like his only real help will come from Russia, Saudi Arabia and Israel. While President Obama was drawing red lines in the drifting sand, Saudi and Russian Fighter Pilots were bombing the Islamic State. Saudi Princes trained in the United States and the King attended their graduations from Air Force Undergraduate Pilot Training. One member of the Royal Saudi family was a pioneer of the F-15 Eagle and retired three years ago as a Major General.

Certainly there are supporters of terrorism in Saudi Arabia just as we have ours. Soros, the corrupt media and most Democrats are clamoring to snuggle terrorists in their bosoms.

REAL THREATS TO THE US POWER GRID

June 21, 2015

THIS IS REAL UNLIKE THE JUNK SCIENCE OF GLOBAL WARMING!

PowerGrid

About once every four days, part of the nation’s power grid is struck by a cyber or physical attack. Such attacks can leave millions without power. A major natural or intentional attack could destroy life as we know it. Before you think I am exaggerating, read on.

Although the repeated security breaches have never resulted in the type of cascading outage that swept across the Northeast in 2003, they have sharpened concerns about vulnerabilities in the electric system. A widespread outage lasting even a few days could disable devices ranging from ATMs to cellphones to traffic lights, gas pumps and could threaten lives if heating, air conditioning and health care systems exhaust their backup power supplies.

Some experts and officials fear the rash of smaller-scale incidents may point to broader security problems, raising questions about what can be done to safeguard the electrical grid from an attack that could leave millions without power for days or weeks, with potentially devastating consequences.

“It’s one of those things: One is too many, so that’s why we have to pay attention,” said Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Cheryl LaFleur. “The threats continue to evolve, and we have to continue to evolve as well.”

An examination by USA TODAY in collaboration with more than 10 Gannett newspapers and TV stations across the country, and drawing on thousands of pages of government records, federal energy data and a survey of more than 50 electric utilities, finds:

• More often than once a week, the physical and computerized security mechanisms intended to protect Americans from widespread power outages are affected by attacks, with less severe cyberattacks happening even more often.

• Transformers and other critical equipment often sit in plain view, protected only by chain-link fencing and a few security cameras.

• Suspects have never been identified in connection with many of the 300-plus attacks on electrical infrastructure since 2011.

• An organization funded by the power industry writes and enforces the industry’s own guidelines for security, and decreased the number of security penalties it issued by 30% from 2013 to 2014, leading to questions about oversight.

Jon Wellinghoff, former chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, said the power grid is currently “too susceptible to a cascading outage” because of its reliance on a small number of critical substations and other physical equipment.

Because the nation’s electrical grid operates as an interdependent network, the failure of any one element requires energy to be drawn from other areas. If multiple parts fail at the same time, there is the potential for a cascading effect that could leave millions in the darks for days, weeks or longer.

“Those critical nodes can, in fact, be attacked in one way or another,” Wellinghoff said. “You have a very vulnerable system that will continue to be vulnerable until we figure out a way to break it out into more distributed systems.”

Some of the worst fears of those in charge of the power grid’s security came true shortly before 1 a.m. on April 16, 2013, when unknown attackers unleashed a coordinated attack on Pacific Gas & Electric’s Metcalf substation in northern California.

The attackers severed six underground fiber-optic lines before firing more than 100 rounds of ammunition at the substation’s transformers, causing more than $15 million in damage.

The intentional act of sabotage, likely involving more than one gunman, was unlike any previous attack on the nation’s grid in its scale and sophistication.

Yet officers did not begin investigating the scene until hours after the shooting took place. Security footage from the shooting is grainy. The attackers were never caught.

Power was not lost, but the nature of the Metcalf attack sent shock waves through the industry.

“Shooting at substations, unfortunately, is not uncommon,” Sue Kelly, president and CEO of the American Public Power Association, an industry group, said of the incident at a Senate hearing last year. “But this incident demonstrated a level of sophistication not previously seen in our sector.”

At a California Public Utilities Commission meeting last year to review the incident, PG&E senior director of substations Ken Wells said the Metcalf attack was “a game changer.”

“No doubt about it, …this event caused us and the entire industry to take a new and closer look at our critical facilities and what we can do to protect them,” Wells said.

As a result of the Metcalf incident, PG&E said it would invest $100 million over three years on new security around many of its critical facilities, including better security cameras, fencing and lighting.

Yet records from hundreds of other attacks in recent years show similar weaknesses still exist at thousands of electric facilities across the country, allowing repeated breaches.

Between 2011 and 2014, electric utilities reported 362 physical and cyberattacks that caused outages or other power disturbances to the U.S. Department of Energy. Of those, 14 were cyberattacks and the rest were physical in nature.

• In 2011, an intruder gained access to a critical hydro-electric converter station in Vermont by smashing a lock on a door.

• In 2013, a gunman fired multiple shots at a gas turbine power plant along the Missouri-Kansas border.

• Also in 2013, four bullets fired from a highway struck a power substation outside Colorado Springs.

No suspects were apprehended in those three incidents. Federal data show such attacks are not rare within the sprawling, interdependent network of transformers, power lines and other equipment that make up the electrical grid.

Often, such incidents are shrugged off by the local police who initially investigate.

In March 2013, security officers at the Jacksonville Electric Authority in Florida noticed a man climbing a fence surrounding St. Johns River Power Park, which produces energy for 250,000 northern Florida households.

The man fled when approached, Jacksonville Electric Authority spokeswoman Gerri Boyce said, and was later observed trying to enter a second facility. He fled again and was never caught.

Nobody filed a police report, according to Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office documents.

Federal records show it is not just large communities that are at risk of attack. Even small, rural utility companies have been subject to foul play.

After a 2011 cyberattack struck the Pedernales Electric Cooperative — a non-profit utility that serves about 200,000 customers across a vast agrarian region of Texas — the utility’s CEO, R.B. Sloan, shared his surprise with the utility’s board of directors.

“You would think if they really wanted to have an impact, they would go for something (else),” he said in a public meeting. Sloan said at the time that the utility filed reports with the Department of Energy and FBI, but he was concerned about the way they handled it.

“It’s obvious to us that some of the regulatory bodies are not well-equipped to accept these and follow up,” he said during the 2011 meeting. “I think this event has made that very apparent.”

Now an executive for a Georgia utility software company, Sloan declined to discuss the attack.

While the Department of Energy received only 14 reports of cyberattacks from utilities over the past four years, other reporting systems show rising cyberthreats.

The branch of the Department of Homeland Security that monitors cyberthreats received reports of 151 “cyber incidents” related to the energy industry in 2013 — up from 111 in 2012 and 31 in 2011. It is uncertain whether the increase is due to more incidents or an increase in reporting.

NOW FOR THE SHOW STOPPERS

The solar storm of 1859, also known as the Carrington event, was a powerful geomagnetic solar storm. A solar coronal mass ejection hit Earth’s magnetosphere and induced one of the largest geomagnetic storms on record. The associated “white light flare” in the solar photosphere was observed and recorded by English astronomers Richard C. Carrington and Richard Hodgson.

Telegraph systems all over Europe and North America failed, in some cases giving telegraph operators electric shocks. Telegraph pylons threw sparks. Some telegraph operators could continue to send and receive messages despite having disconnected their power supplies. From August 28 through September 2, 1859, numerous sunspots were observed on the Sun. On August 29, southern aurorae were observed as far north as Queensland, Australia. Just before noon on September 1, the English amateur astronomers Richard Carrington and Richard Hodgson independently made the first observations of a solar flare. The flare was associated with a major coronal mass ejection (CME) that travelled directly toward Earth, taking 17.6 hours to make the 93 million mile journey.

Studies have shown that a solar storm of this magnitude occurring today would likely cause widespread problems for modern civilization. The solar storm of 2012 was of similar magnitude, but it passed Earth’s orbit without striking the Earth.

In June 2013, a joint venture from researchers at Lloyd’s of London and Atmospheric and Environmental Research in the United States used data from the Carrington Event to estimate the current cost of a similar event to the US alone at up to $2.6 trillion.

ONE EMP BURST AND THE WORLD GOES DARK

The sky erupts. Cities darken, food spoils and homes fall silent. Civilization collapses. End-of-the-world novel? A video game? Or could such a scenario loom in America’s future?

There is talk of catastrophe ahead, depending on whom you believe, because of the threat of an electromagnetic pulse triggered by either a supersized solar storm or terrorist A-bomb, both capable of disabling the electric grid that powers modern life.

Electromagnetic pulses (EMP) are oversized outbursts of atmospheric electricity. I previously discussed an EMP powered by geomagnetic storms. The same thing can occur with a nuclear blast in our atmosphere. The resultant intense magnetic fields can induce ground currents strong enough to burn out power lines and electrical equipment across state lines.

The threat has even become political fodder, drawing warnings from former House speaker Newt Gingrich.

“We are not today hardened against this,” he told a Heritage Foundation audience. “It is an enormous catastrophic threat.”

There are “some important reasons for concern,” says physicist Yousaf Butt of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Mass. “But there is also a lot of fluff.”

At risk are the more than 200,000 miles of high-voltage transmission lines that cross North America, supplying 1,800 utilities the power for TVs, lights, refrigerators and air conditioners in homes, and for the businesses, hospitals and police stations that take care of us all.

“The electric grid’s vulnerability to cyber and to other attacks is one of the single greatest threats to our national security,” Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass.

Markey and others point to the August 2003 blackout that struck states from Michigan to Massachusetts, and southeastern Canada, as a sign of the grid’s vulnerability. Triggered by high-voltage lines stretched by heat until they sagged onto overgrown tree branches, the two-day blackout shut down 100 power plants, cut juice to about 55 million people and cost $6 billion, says the 2004 U.S.-Canada Power System Outage Task Force.

The electromagnetic pulse threat is a function of simple physics: Electromagnetic pulses and geomagnetic storms can alter Earth’s magnetic field. Changing magnetic fields in the atmosphere, in turn, can trigger surging currents in power lines.

Two historic incidents often figure in the discussion:

• On July 9, 1962, the Atomic Energy Commission and the Defense Atomic Support Agency detonated the Starfish Prime, a 1.4-megaton H-bomb test at an altitude of 250 miles, some 900 miles southwest of Hawaii over the Pacific Ocean. The pulse shorted out streetlights in Oahu.

• On March 9, 1989, the sun spat a million-mile-wide blast of high-temperature charged solar gas straight at the Earth. The “coronal mass ejection” struck the planet three days later, triggering a geomagnetic storm that made the northern lights visible in Texas. The storm also induced currents in Quebec’s power grid that knocked out power for 6 million people in Canada and the USA for at least nine hours.

“A lot of the questions are what steps does it make sense to take,” Legge says. “We could effectively gold-plate every component in the system, but the cost would mean that people can’t afford the rates that would result to pay for it.”

“The high-altitude nuclear-weapon-generated electromagnetic pulse is one of a small number of threats that has the potential to hold our society seriously at risk,” concluded a 2008 EMP Commission report headed by William Graham, a former science adviser to President Reagan.

In the nuclear scenario, the detonation of an atomic bomb anywhere from 25 to 500 miles high electrifies, or ionizes, the atmosphere about 25 miles up, triggering a series of electromagnetic pulses. The pulse’s reach varies with the size of the bomb, the height of its blast and design.

Gingrich cited the EMP Commission report in warning, “One weapon of this kind that went off over Omaha would eliminate most of the electrical production in the United States.”

Proposed fixes can cost a fortune but I am told that the main threat can be eliminated with about $2 billion worth of surge protectors. To date, almost nothing has been done.

WHEN WILL AMERICA GET SERIOUS ABOUT JIHAD?

January 19, 2015

ThreatTrade

 

Christianity began to spread across the Middle East until the whole region was Christian. Even the Roman Empire that crucified Jesus and fed Christians to lions as sport, adopted Christianity and eventually became the Holy Roman Empire. There was no real challenge to Christianity in the region until the rise of Islamic Jihad beginning at Mecca in 620 AD under Muhammed.

Before Muhammed, Arabs worshipped innumerable gods and goddesses in addition to Allah who was one of the many gods. Among them were Allat, Alluza, Mannat who were goddesses and were looked upon as daughters of Allah along with male gods like Hubal or Baal. After the death of Muhammed on June 8, 632 at age 62 or 63, the Islamic Religion began to be formed. According to Islamic teaching, the Quran came down as a series of revelations from Allah through the Archangel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad who then dictated it to his followers. Muhammad’s companions memorized fragments of the Quran and wrote them down on whatever was at hand, which were later compiled into book form under the rule of the third Caliph, Uthman, some years after Muhammad’s death.

Muhammad was orphaned as a young child and raised by other family members. He became a merchant and began to preach Islam publicly in Mecca in 613 in his 40’s. His preaching is met with skepticism, and he is accused of plagiarizing the “tales of the ancients.” One of his harshest critics was his own uncle, Abu Lahab, who is cursed by name in the Quran. Due to growing animosity between the pagans and Muslims in Mecca, Muhammad and his followers flee to Medina where Muhammad turns into a political and military leader.

In 624 the first armed conflicts began with a series of raids against caravans of pagans from Mecca. The raid marking the beginning of violence in the name of Islam took place in one of the four holy months in which fighting was forbidden. The Battle of Badr followed the caravan raids when the Meccans retaliated against Muhammad. Although they were vastly outnumbered, the Muslims defeated the pagan Meccans; killing at least seventy and capturing another seventy for ransom. Al Nadir, a storyteller and poet who had mocked Muhammad was among the prisoners of war. Muhammad ordered that Al Nadir be beheaded and another twenty-four to be thrown into the well of Badr. That same year, the Jewish Qayniqa tribe was besieged by the Muslims. Muhammad initially intended to execute all the males, but decides to confiscate their property and exile them from Medina. So began the 1,400 years of Jihad by Islam.

Captured people who were infidels, Kafirs or non believers in Allah, were given three choices: Convert to Islam, be killed or pay a tax called Jaziya. Other Arabs were not given the choice of paying Jaziya and remaining non-Muslim, their choice was only Islam or Death. Hence there are no surviving nature and idol-worshipping non-Muslim Arabs today. A point missed by many Arab and Western historians.

By 1096 Muslims controlled most of modern day Turkey, the very capital of Constantine and the location of Antioch where Christians were first called Christians. Where Paul was born and where he departed for his Missionary Journeys. Turkey is the birthplace of Abraham at Ur. Ur became Urfa and then Edessa. Today it is called Şanlıurfa. Sorry, your Bible Maps of Abraham’s travels show the wrong Ur.

Threat1096

From the beginning the Muslims waged economic warfare by targeting caravans and merchant ships. Still, for centuries Christian pilgrims traveled freely from Europe to Jerusalem. All that changed when the Seljuk Turks, who were Muslim, began to interfere with these pilgrimages. In 1071, the Seljuk Turks fought against the Byzantine Empire at the Battle of Manzikert. The Byzantines, who were Christian, lost. The Byzantine emperor asked the Christians in Europe to help protect his empire from the Muslims. In 1095, Pope Urban II called for a crusade against the Muslims to regain control of Jerusalem. The Crusades were holy wars fought between European Christians and Muslims between 1095 and 1291. The main goal of the Crusades was to take control of Jerusalem away from the Muslims and permit safe passage of Christians to the Holy Land.

After the First Crusade achieved its goal with the capture of Jerusalem in 1099, the invading Christians set up several Latin Christian states, even as Muslims in the region vowed to wage jihad to regain control over the region. Christian states were established in Jerusalem, Edessa, Antioch and Tripoli and were guarded by formidable castles. I mentioned that Abraham was from Edessa, but Edessa was also where the Shroud of Turin resided for several years before being moved to Constantinople in the tenth century. News of Edessa’s fall to the Muslims stunned Europe, and led Christian authorities in the West to call for another Crusade. The Second Crusade began in 1147 but was crushed by the ever strengthening Muslims. Through the end of the 13th century, groups of Crusaders sought to gain ground in the Holy Land through short-lived raids that proved little more than an annoyance to Muslim rulers in the region. My guess is that wild eyed professors gave you a completely false narrative about the Crusades?

“Islam is a religion of beheading,” according to Sheikh Hussein bin Mahmoud, a frequent contributor to Islamic internet forums, where he presents theological justifications for various atrocities committed by groups such as Al Qaeda and the Islamic State. “My mind is perplexed by words I have read and heard from people whom I do not know how to describe!!” bin Mahmoud wrote in an article translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute. “Millions of Muslims have been killed, tortured and driven from their homes; tens of thousands of Muslim women have had their honor violated and have been sexually abused by the Americans — yet people are weeping over a Christian American ‘harbi’ infidel who entered the Islamic State, knowing full well what the Islamic State is, and without a pact.”

“Harbi” is a term referring to non-Muslims who live outside of Muslim-run territories.

Bin Mahmoud went on to say that a harbi who enters into a Islamic-ruled territory without a formal pact of protection from the ruling Muslims is fair game for robbery, kidnapping, and murder. The Islamic cleric condemns the “West’s false views” that have attempted to create a generation of young Muslims that “does not know fighting or the cutting of necks.” Chopping off heads is a sacred act, according to bin Mahmoud, who wrote, “Beheading a harbi infidel is a blessed act for which a Muslim is rewarded.”

In fact, bin Mahmoud continues, beheading other human beings is a Muslim tradition extending back to the religion’s founder, the Prophet Muhammad himself. “The Prophet did not condemn the striking of necks,” he wrote in the forum article. “Striking necks was a well-known matter that did not elicit any condemnation in the eras of the Prophet, the rightly-guided caliphs and their successors, right until the time of the Christian occupation of the Muslims’ lands in the 20th century.”

“What distorts the image of Islam is not the beheading and terrorizing of infidels, but rather those who want Mandela or Ghandi, with no killing, fighting, brutality, bloodshed or the striking of heads or necks. That is not the religion of Muhammad,” wrote bin Mahmoud. “Islam is a religion of power, fighting, jihad, beheading and bloodshed, not a religion of turning the left cheek to whoever slapped you on the right cheek. On the contrary, it is a religion of breaking the hand that is stretched out to humiliate the Muslim.”

Muslim conquests are marked by crucifixions, beheadings and other mass murders of men, women and children. After a single battle in Spain, the heads of knights were cut off and stacked into a pile so high that a man on horseback could not see over them. Over a thousand years later Mosul Christians were annihilated almost overnight.

JohahTomb

 

The Tomb of Jonah before and after ISIS bombing

Mosul is 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, with dioceses stretching from the Mediterranean to China and India. The tombs of several Old Testament prophets including Jonah are located in Mosul. For the first time in 2,000 years, not ONE Christian remains alive in Mosul. A Christian rancher with 600 head of cattle and 200 sheep fled to Jordan with nothing but the shirt on his back. At the rate things are going, Jordan will soon fall into Muslim hands.

The bread and butter of Islamic terrorists is economic terrorism and has been since the first caravan raids. The first struggle America had with Islamic Terrorism came when George Washington was President. Muslim Pirate ships and crews from the Barbary Coast states of Tripoli, Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers were the scourge of the Mediterranean capturing merchant ships and holding their crews for ransom. As early as 1784 Congress followed the tradition of the European shipping powers and appropriated $80,000 as tribute to the Barbary States, directing its ministers in Europe, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, to begin negotiations with them. Trouble began the next year, in July 1785, when Algerians captured two American ships and held their crews of twenty-one people for a ransom of nearly $60,000.

ThreatShip

 Merchant Ship under attack by Barbary Pirates

Thomas Jefferson, United States minister to France, opposed the payment and wrote this in his autobiography, “endeavored to form an association of the powers subject to habitual depredation from them. I accordingly prepared, and proposed to their ministers at Paris, for consultation with their governments, articles of a special confederation.” Jefferson’s efforts fell through because then as now the major powers could not agree on how to combat the aggression.

Eventually in 1786, Jefferson wrote this to John Adams, “I very early thought it would be best to effect a peace thro’ the medium of war. Paying tribute will merely invite more demands, and even if a coalition proves workable, the only solution is a strong navy that can reach the pirates.” Jefferson argued in an August 18, 1786, letter to James Monroe: “The states must see the rod; perhaps it must be felt by some one of them. . . . Every national citizen must wish to see an effective instrument of coercion, and should fear to see it on any other element than the water. A naval force can never endanger our liberties, nor occasion bloodshed; a land force would do both.” “From what I learn from the temper of my countrymen and their tenaciousness of their money,” Jefferson added in a December 26, 1786, letter to the president of Yale College, Ezra Stiles, “it will be more easy to raise ships and men to fight these pirates into reason, than money to bribe them.” Still, indifference prevailed and in 1795 alone the United States was forced to pay nearly a million dollars in cash, naval stores, and a frigate to ransom 115 sailors from Algiers.

President Jefferson dispatched a squadron of naval vessels to the Mediterranean. As he declared in his first annual message to Congress: “To this state of general peace with which we have been blessed, one only exception exists. Tripoli, the least considerable of the Barbary States, had come forward with demands unfounded either in right or in compact, and had permitted itself to denounce war, on our failure to comply before a given day. The style of the demand admitted but one answer. I sent a small squadron of frigates into the Mediterranean. . . .”

The American show of force quickly awed Tunis and Algiers into breaking their alliance with Tripoli. The humiliating loss of the frigate Philadelphia and the capture of her captain and crew in Tripoli in 1803, criticism from his political opponents, and even opposition within his own cabinet did not deter Jefferson from his chosen course during four years of war. The aggressive action of Commodore Edward Preble (1803-4) forced Morocco out of the fight and his five bombardments of Tripoli restored some order to the Mediterranean. The U.S. continued to pay tributes until 1815 when naval victories led to treaties ending all tribute payments by the United States. European nations continued annual payments until the 1830s. However, international piracy in Atlantic and Mediterranean waters declined during this time under pressure from the Euro-American nations, who no longer viewed pirate states as mere annoyances during peacetime and potential allies during war.

On September 11, 2001, the Islamic economic war was brought to the United States when the World Trade Center was the primary target.

ThreatToday

Each day the Islamic State grows more powerful and more and more Muslims inhabit Christian, Buddhist, Hindu and secular countries. The Muslims have a plan and strategy; the West has no plan, no consensus, no strategy and no clue. If you were an odds maker, you would have to give the Muslims odds of at least 60% to dominate the world. Iran most likely already has everything necessary to construct an atomic bomb with the help from Russian and North Korean Nuclear Scientists. About 50 countries have Muslim majorities. What if the United States dominated 50 countries? Even Russia never gobbled up 50 countries.

Many secular countries will eagerly assist In the Muslim goal of an Islamic World as long as Big Satan and Little Satan are annihilated in the process. Do you believe President Barack Obama is a serious participant in fighting the Global War on Terrorism? How about England, Belgium, France, Germany and Spain? Ferdinand and Isabella expelled Muslims from Spain 500 years ago but they are dead. Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher are gone. There are no Winston Churchill’s anymore. John Kerry, the Vietnam War protestor is Secretary of State! There is really no leader out there who understands how serious the threat really is or the global scope of its power.

After years of indoctrination by unionized teachers in public schools and wild eyed atheist professors, a surprising number of college students believe the United States is a greater threat to world peace than Islam. Young men and women are rushing to join the Islamic State for service abroad or domestically. It would not surprise me to see President Obama invite them to the Rose Garden for a Beer Summit and photo op. You won’t find any official estimates of the numbers of terrorists already in America; my estimate is between 100,000 and two million.

The police in Paris do not carry guns, maybe that’s why it took 90,000 police to pursue four terrorists and only three were caught? Liberal leaders across America can’t imagine why any law abiding citizen needs to own a gun. Even after 911, nothing was done to strengthen national security. Civil liberties were stripped and law abiding citizens became targets of the NSA but our borders became much less secure and terrorist acts continue to occur. The Obama Administration marginalizes attacks by calling them WORKPLACE VIOLENCE.

Most Americans think they can watch the Today Show and know everything that’s going on. Too many cannot tell when they are being indoctrinated. I just watched Liberals saying that Hillary is worried about Jeb Bush. If they thought Jeb Bush was a threat, they would be saying he can see Russia from Coral Gables. The subtle message is for Conservatives to nominate the man who scares Hillary. Some will actually fall for these tricks. Many will never see the terror threat until their heads are on the chopping block.

CARTER LETS CAT OUT OF THE BAG

August 6, 2014

UPDATE:  Carter recently published a call for the international community to recognize Hamas as a legitimate political actor in the Middle East, cheering the terrorists and angering Israel’s supporters.

Now, according to a report from Breitbart, retired Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz says that Carter’s piece could be interpreted as “recruitment” for Hamas, which is an officially designated Foreign Terrorist Organization under U.S. law. If that is the case and Carter is found to have provided “material support” to Hamas, he could be found guilty of a felony.

 

IS JIMMY CARTER REPRESENTATIVE OF MAINSTREAM DEMOCRATIC PROGRESSIVE THINKING?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~xaa

 

The depth of Carter’s anti-Israel prejudice was already on display eight-years ago when he insisted that the Israeli occupation of the West Bank “perpetrates even worse instances of apartness, or apartheid, than we witnessed even in South Africa.” You probably never heard of his book, “Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid.” I just checked Amazon and it’s ranked 652,787th.

I will not guarantee but I’m pretty sure Jimmy Carter can read. He has written and spoke in support of Hamas, so surely he has read the Hamas Charter issued on August 18, 1988. The Charter identified Hamas as the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine and declares its members to be Muslims who “fear God and raise the banner of Jihad in the face of the oppressors.” The charter states that “our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious” and calls for the creation of an Islamic state in Palestine in place of Israel and the Palestinian Territories and the obliteration or dissolution of Israel.

If you have been reading my various posts in the past you know that several members of the Muslim Brotherhood occupy high ranking positions in the Obama Administration including highly sensitive positions. You will also remember Obama’s eagerness to give F-16’s and Abrams Tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood. I will briefly include some of the Hamas Charter:

The Preamble to the Charter states: ″Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.″

Article 8 The Hamas document reiterates the Muslim Brotherhood’s slogan of “Allah is its goal, the Prophet is the model, the Qur’an its constitution, jihad its path, and death for the sake of Allah its most sublime belief.”

Article 13 There is no negotiated settlement possible. Jihad is the only answer.

Article 14 The liberation of Palestine is the personal duty of every Palestinian.

Article 20 Calls for action “by the people as a single body” against “a vicious enemy which acts in a way similar to Nazism, making no differentiation between man and woman, between children and old people.”

Jimmy Carter’s assertions would probably be quickly dismissed as lunacy even by the Democrat controlled news agencies if it were not for the fact that Carter is a former President of the United States.

To make Carter’s views seem even more radical, the Israeli military just captured a Hamas Manual on Urban Warfare called, “Introduction to City War.” The manual extols the benefit that can be gained by civilian deaths and openly acknowledges that Israel will do everything it can to avoid them. The Cover shows images of militants wielding rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons. It further brags about the propaganda value of the deaths of innocent women and children. The destruction of civilian homes is especially good for Hamas as it increases the hatred of the citizens toward Israel and increases their support for Hamas.

The manual, which came from the Shuja’iya Brigade of Hamas’ military wing, also explained how heavily populated urban areas — called “pockets of resistance” — make operations for the IDF difficult because Israeli soldiers try very hard not to harm civilians.

Any legitimate observer knows that Hamas exploits civilians as human shields but steadfastly refuses to report about it. Hamas has even used UN facilities to store rockets and missiles. Meanwhile, the UN has formally condemned Israel scores of times and almost every nation is lined up against the tiny country.

Israel is known throughout Islam as “Little Satan” and the United States is called “Big Satan.” Israel has support from the American People and would like to have support from the U.S. government but they don’t need it. Israel has support from God and will be saved in the end. God will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel. You have been warned.

The Global Terrorism Threat

March 27, 2014

~~~~~~~~2a

I know your expectations are low with Secretaries of State like Hillary “Saul Alinsky” Clinton and John “Vietnam Veteran Accuser” Kerry. Therefore, I will take some time out of my day to enlighten you about the threat to your security.

Your State Department lists FOUR Countries as State Sponsors of Terrorism: Iran, Cuba, Syria and Sudan. This may shock you since 15 of the 19 hijackers who hijacked four jet airliners on 911 were Saudi Arabian citizens. In fact, the King who Barack Obama bowed down to rules Saudi Arabia, the country it is said to be the world’s largest source of funds for Salafi jihadist terrorist militant groups, such as al-Qaeda, the Afghan Taliban, and Lashkar-e-Taiba in South Asia, and donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide, according to Hillary Clinton. According to a secret December 2009 paper signed by the US secretary of state, “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaida, the Taliban, LeT and other terrorist groups.”

You also may be alert enough to notice that countries like North Korea, Libya, Russia and China are noticeably absent.

Libya as far back as 1969 supported, with weapon supplies, training camps located within Libya and monetary finances, an array of armed paramilitary groups both including the Provisional Irish Republican Army, the Basque Fatherland and Liberty, the Umkhonto We Sizwe, the Polisario Front, the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Moro National Liberation Front of the Philippines. Libya was removed from the United States list of terrorist supporting nations after it had ended all of its support for armed groups and the development of weapons of mass destruction. A lawyer representing one of the whistleblowers with knowledge of the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi says 400 surface-to-air missiles were “diverted to Libya” during the attack and fell into “the hands of some very ugly people.” In an interview with Washington, D.C. radio station WMAL, Beltway lawyer Joe diGenova said he “does not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the distribution of those missiles,”

Even more disturbing are the Libyan arms that went missing during the fighting to remove Col Muammar Gaddafi including 20,000 surface to air missiles. Those weapons are now spreading ever further afield, being used in conflicts as far apart as Niger, Somalia, Gaza and Syria, a UN report says. The U.S. continues to give Libya about a billion dollars in foreign aid.

Then there is Barack’s buddy Vladimir. Russia has their Edward Snowden, his name is Stanislav Lunev, a former Soviet Military officer born in 1946 in Leningrad. the highest-ranking Main Intelligence Directorate officer to defect from Russia to the United States. He worked as an intelligence officer in Singapore in 1978, in China from 1980, and in the United States from 1988. He defected to U.S. authorities in 1992. Since then he has worked as a consultant to the FBI and CIA. He remains in the FBI’s Witness Protection Program. According to Lunev, a probable scenario in the event of war would be poisoning of the Potomac River with chemical or biological weapons, “targeting the residents of Washington DC.” He also noted that it is “likely” that operatives have placed already “poison supplies near the tributaries to major US reservoirs.” That was confirmed by Alexander Kouzminov who was responsible for transporting dangerous pathogens from around the world for Russian program of biological weapons in the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s. He described a variety of biological terrorism acts that would be carried out on the order of the Russian President in the event of hostilities, including poisoning public drinking-water supplies and food processing plants. US Congressman Curt Weldon supported claims by Lunev but noted that Lunev had “exaggerated things” according to the FBI. Our government calls it Biological Warfare, the Holy Bible calls it Pestilence. But wait, Barack Obama says the Cold War has been over for many years. Why would we ever dare to worry about Russia?

I don’t think anybody who is reading this needs to be explained the sordid past of North Korea or that they possess nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. I do not doubt that they would use these weapons on anybody at any time. Since they have nukes, it is safe to assume their scientists have proliferated them to Iran and who knows who else. If the radicalized NSA would do their job instead of spying on Congressmen, Supreme Court Justices, Governors and me, perhaps they would know more about OUR REAL ENEMIES?

So, what about China? China’s nuclear arsenal poses the most serious “mortal threat” to the United States among nation states, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the Senate. In candid testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Mr. Clapper said he considered China the most significant threat among nation states, with Russia posing the second-greatest threat. He later clarified the comments by saying he did not assess that China or Russia had the intention to launch an attack on the United States. The testimony contrasts with statements by Obama administration officials who have sought to highlight the dangers of Iran and North Korea while paying less attention to China and Russia. Mr. Clapper said he does not assess that North Korea and Iran pose greater strategic threats because they lack the forces that Russia and China have that could deliver a nuclear attack on the United States. Dear Mr. Clapper, THE UNITED STATES IS NOT SECURE!!!! Until our borders and 92,000 miles of coastline are secure, ANY country or terrorist group has the capacity to cross our borders or coastlines with weapons of mass destruction.

Does, “Establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense” ring a bell? The Obama Administration sees Conservatives, Veterans, Christians and Wage Earners as THE ENEMY. Until we have a regime change, we must look out for ourselves and assume that Weapons of Mass Destruction are pre-positioned on United States soil and that our enemies are living among us at this very second. The truth of the matter is that very few people outside of Israel, Canada, Australia and Japan care one iota about us, the American People. It certainly looks like very few people in Washington, DC care about us either. Keep your powder dry and pay attention to what you do and where you go. Just because Yemen, Somalia, Mexico and Egypt are not on the State Department list does not mean they are safe. There are large and small cities in the United States that are not safe. You know Chicago is dangerous but how many of your friends know that North Little Rock, Arkansas is the fifth most dangerous small city in America? All I’m saying is stay alert and if you see something, say something.
