OBAMA BANS MENTION OF ISLAM IN TERROR TRAINING

I’m shaking my head.

Never did I ever think we’d see the day when our own government, our own president, would be in collusion with our enemies. I can almost tolerate ignorance and naivety, a la Jimmy Carter. But not when leaders we trust are working on behalf of the other side.

The president has overseen a new executive order, via the Justice Department, to prohibit the mention of “Islam” in the training federal law enforcement training manuals. That’s right folks. Law enforcement training can no longer refer to Islamic terror as…well… “Islamic terror.”

Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole has confirmed that the Obama administration was pulling back all training materials used for the law enforcement and national security communities, in order to eliminate all references to Islam because some Muslim groups have claimed it is offensive. That’s like taking Racists out of the KKK. Or Italians out of the Mafia.

The terrorists must be slapping high fives behind closed doors. Thanks Allah. Thanks Obama. Score one major victory for CAIR. One major defeat for United States national security.

Interesting. The president has no qualms about shooting foreign terrorists on foreign soil, yet he caves to Islamic pressure inside the borders of his own country.

So now, how are the FBI, CIA, DEA, ICE, U.S. Marshal, U.S. Customs, Border Patrol, Secret Service, Military intelligence…and more, supposed to teach new agents and employees? The very essence of investigations of major criminal activity is to follow patterns and associations and to correlate motives, backgrounds and anything else that brings criminals into a single purpose. In international terror, (like it or not) that’s radical Islam. Everyone who has a brain, knows that. Are our law enforcement agents not supposed to be informed that there is a Common Denominator for the thousands of acts of terror around the world every year?

Organized Crime and the Drug Cartels should take a lesson from this. All you need to do is intimidate the government and complain that accusing Mexicans and Colombian drug lords and other foreign nationals as being drug smugglers is OFFENSIVE. Being factual, is unimportant. More importantly, we must not offend. We must capitulate to the people who hate us the most.

Here are a few facts taken from various sources (see below):

* More people are killed by Islamist terrorists in one any one year, than in all 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition, combined. (Note, that’s ISLAMIC terror, not Timothy McVeigh or radical right wing Christians)

* More civilians were killed in two hours on September 11, 2001, than in the previous 36 years of sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland. (That’s by ISLAMIC terrorists)

* Islamic terrorists murder more people each day than the KKK has in the last 50 years. (Note: That’s ISLAMIC terrorists)

* Islamic terrorists have carried out nearly 18,000 terror attacks worldwide since September 11, 2001. Read it again. That’s Eighteen Thousand attacks worldwide by ISLAMIC terrorists.

* In the last ten years, more than 96,000 human beings have been slaughtered b y Islamic terror attacks, most of them Muslims. (Note: ISLAMIC terror)

* In the U.S., there have been twenty-one citizens killed in Islamic terror attacks since 9/11 by seven perpetrators. Another four were foiled before anyone was killed. (Note: ISLAMIC terror)

This is the same administration that was illegally selling assault rifles to Mexican drug lords which has resulted in the killing of innocent people, including an American Border Patrol agent.

Where’s the outcry?

This is the same president who has employed people connected to the notorious Muslim Brotherhood — our enemy — as trusted advisors in the White House.

Where’s the outcry?

This same administration has a woman traveling with the Secretary of State who was raised in Wahabbi Saudi Arabia, whose mother is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, and whose brother is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood in Oxford, and who has access to every highly sensitive national security issues in the State Department, and we say nothing? This woman could not pass scrutiny to be hired by any law enforcement agency in the country, yet she is privy to the inner workings and national security of our government.

Where’s the outrage?

This is the same president who is aiding and abetting illegal immigration by providing comfort, jobs, and other benefits to illegal immigrants, while Americans are in dire need of those jobs.

Where is the outrage?

He dropped all charges against the New Black Panthers for intimidating voters, causing a respected U.S. Attorney to quit and do everything he could to expose this travesty of a Justice Department.

Where is the outrage?

America goes about life, ho-hum, that’s politics, as though there is no danger, no disloyalty, no collusion with our enemy forces, when it is all around us. Sure, the economy is a vital issue, but folks, there’s other issues just as vital. We better start paying attention to matters that protect our nation.

There is no other word. This president is despicable. He’s the best friend radical Islamists could possibly have hoped for in the Oval Office. Yet, our media and our people, turn a blind eye.

Sadly, he can do a lot of damage before November of 2012.

RANDOM PONDERINGS

* Why do cars come with useless alarm systems? Answer 1) To help ignore thieves 2) To irritate pedestrians and 3) To fatten contracts with auto manufacturers.

* I’m old enough to remember when a kiss didn’t begin with a tongue.

* If Americans are having an unemployment problem, then why does the government want to create jobs to employ illegal non-Americans?

* Why do sports associations fine wealthy professional athletes $10,000 for misconduct? That’s like fining me a nickle for parking in handicapped spaces.

* I wonder how much all those audience girls are paid to scream their lungs out in TV shows like America’s Got Talent.

* If you’re over forty, name a really funny comedian today. (Those under forty wouldn’t remember them)

* I wonder what the U.S. population would be today if there had not been wars in Korea, Viet Nam, Afghanistan and Iraq.

* Why do we continue pursuing the same war on drugs when every statistic and comprehensive study shows it’s a losing strategy?

* Rap Music is an oxymoron

* The only way to extract corruption from politics is to do away with campaign finance entirely. It is doable, but don’t hold your breath.

* People like Allen West, Herman Cain and Tim Scott are driving the Obama camp crazy, because they can no longer rely on calling everyone “racists” on the conservative side.

* I’m glad to see a new breed of young golfers rise to the top since Tiger Woods made room for them.

* Wouldn’t you love to see a debate between Barack Obama and Newt Gingrich? It would be like pitting Pee Wee Herman against Shaq O’Neal.

*  I know very little about finance, but there are basics to anything. It’s common sense that you can’t spend more than you take in. What else do we need to know?

* I would love for the United States to take in every oppressed and starving human being on planet earth and give them warmth, love and freedom. Then again, that would effectively terminate the United States as we know it, forever.

* I can’t eat a dead fish that’s looking at me.

* Even if he fails his presidential bid, Herman Cain has made a powerful statement about self-determination, rising up from the poor house and earning ones way to the top.

* Why does our government disapprove of water boarding, but approves assassinations?

* I hope to die snuggled in my wife’s bosom.

* All religions are worthy of respect, until they threaten the well being of others.

* I love my age, 72. It’s pure freedom. No job to keep, no ambitions to pursue, nothing more to prove, no one to impress, no party line to follow.

* My kids are all grown and independent. I won’t let my senior life be controlled by their lives.

* I love to entertain at elderly facilities. The older folks always stand up and place their hands on their hearts when we play patriotic music.

* Sometimes those people holding cardboard signs at intersections are really hungry. Why judge?

* I’m not religious, but we celebrate Christmas because it brings families and friends together in a spirit of love at least one time a year. What does it matter, the reason?

* When I was a kid, my mother told me — not asked me — to practice violin. Today, it’s a blessing. She cared more about my future than my approval of her.

* In twenty years, book stores will be obsolete. How sad.

* I would bet that Mozart was autistic?

* I fear the American people have been lulled into a false sense of security and we have misplaced our trust into those who would surreptitiously do us injustice and harm.

* Divorce isn’t always a bad thing. I have a really talented, loving and dynamic wife.  If it weren’t for those past divorces, she wouldn’t be a part of my life today.

 

 

WALL STREET DEMONSTRATORS-MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE

An old friend recently wrote me with these comments about the Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators:

“…non-violent protesters are being arrested for no reason. As for the … the tea party, the number one thing wrong with their mentality is that they are selfishly cruel; not giving a damn about the downtrodden of our society. They represent the worst of all human failings, narrow-minded ignorance.”

When I asked this friend to articulate what, specifically, makes the Tea Party “…selfish, cruel, uncaring of downtrodden, represent the worst of human failings, narrow-minded ignorance…” she did not, or could not be specific. I found the comments incomprehensible, particularly from an otherwise intelligent person, as though she was parroting the Left-Wing anthem by rote.

Many pundits compare the Occupy Wall Streeters to the Tea Party, but there is no legitimate comparison. And to claim that protesters are being arrested for no reason at all is more regurgitation of the party line, as though it were a script.

The Occupy Wall Street demonstrations could best be evaluated in Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s remark, “God bless them, for their spontaneity.” She said a mouthful.

First, in one sentence she revealed that the movement — which basically calls for America to evolve from capitalism to socialism — is supported and endorsed by the extreme left wing of the Democratic Party. And, considering that thousands of marchers could not undergo such a venture without substantial funding, it raises suspicion of where that money is coming from.

Second, by endorsing the demonstrations, she and other politicians like her, basically approve — de facto – of the actions of the demonstrators which has included the breaking of laws. Many hundreds have been arrested for blocking roads and bridges, dumping trash, vandalism and disorderly conduct.

Third, Mrs. Pelosi does the conservative right wing a great favor just by opening her mouth. Stating that these demonstrations are “spontaneous” is not only a lie, it insults the intelligence of every American who’s listening. The demonstrations are about as spontaneous as the Battle of Bull Run. The “spontaneous” comment was intended to manipulate the minds of Americans to give the marchers more innocence and legitimacy than they deserve.

Then again, it was Mrs. Pelosi who coined the brilliant remark regarding health care, “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it.”

Having served in Miami-Dade as a cop for thirty tumultuous years, I learned a lot about “spontaneous” street demonstrations, civil disobedience and violence. Riots and marches are never spontaneous. They are rooted in the back rooms of planners and agitators who plot strategy with a long range purpose to create change, good or bad.

Riots are usually instigated by a few, which catch fire and ignite the masses into violent behavior. As mobs escalate into a frenzy stage, some simply get out of control. That results in destruction of property, injury and sometimes worse.

It’s usually part of the strategy. Demonstrators and rioters intend on being arrested and hope to get their pictures taken in the process, all for the purpose of making the “establishment” look bad and to engender sympathy for their cause via media. Their bond money and legal fees are already pre-funded.

Many times, during street confrontations, I watched the behavior of demonstrators instantly change from passive to aggressive when the red light of television cameras came on. It was like Stephen Spielberg had just hollered “Action!”

Spontaneous? Hardly.

For police it’s the old “rock and a hard place.” They are compelled to act when laws are broken. Contrary to popular belief, police officers do not wake up every morning hoping to falsely arrest people in the streets. It’s a no choice situation.

Outside of ideology, the biggest differences between the Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street groups are in outright signs and actions depicting bigotry and anti-Semitism by the Occupiers. Tea Party demonstrators do not espouse bigotry, racism or anti-Semitism) Check out the links below.

Then, there is the Egyptian fellow who was invited to speak, representing himself as an example of revolutionary change when he protested in his country earlier this year. What he didn’t tell anyone, was that those protests and uprisings were rooted in the Muslim Brotherhood, which is the most notorious, fundamentalist Islamist organization in the world with sights fixed on world domination. (See video below) So much for the pillars of Occupy Wall Street.

Meanwhile, Americans are constitutionally guaranteed the right to protest and assemble. Though I don’t agree with their message, demonstrators of Occupy Wall Street are exercising their rights so long as they are peaceful and do not break laws. Their goals and objectives are diminished, however, when they can’t respect the law and the rights of others.

Most would admit, some of their basic grievances are actually valid regarding jobs and the economy. But they are barking up the wrong street for redress. They should consider redirecting their protest marches from Wall Street to the White House, as suggested by Herman Cain.

Yes, the economy was slipping badly when Bush left office. This president has had almost three years to make a difference, and the hole keeps getting deeper.

ARE GOVERNMENT ORDERED ASSASSINATIONS LEGAL?

I write this blog with mixed feelings. My mind tells me that our soldiers have eliminated a grave threat to the country, but my heart tells me that our government has made a humongous mistake.

I am not a backer of Ron Paul for president, though I often pay close attention when he speaks because he is straight forward not always wrong. In this issue, I fear he is correct in voicing his opposition to the killing of an al Qaeda operative in Yemen.

Paul is condemning the murder by American forces of not one, but two American citizens dwelling in another country. It is disturbing, for a number of reasons. Yes, Anwar al-Awlaki was a bad guy, a dangerous radical Islamist who deserved the full brunt of the American justice system. That’s not what he got. He was assassinated, as was his accomplice. In this instance, the United States by-passed the justice system and carried out a death sentence without a trial. I’m not so sure we did not commit an illegal act.

Where is the liberal media now? Is there anything that Barack Obama can do that deserves criticism by the press? Imagine G.W. Bush carrying out assassinations in foreign countries, not in the theater of war operations. How would MCBNC or the New York Times have reacted then?

There is no evidence that Anwar al-Awlaki killed anyone, although we know that he has counseled and inspired other people to commit acts of terror. Is that reason enough to assassinate? Should we use our intelligence sources to identify all haters of America who call for our destruction, inspiring violence, and then order them to be killed? If so, there are plenty to go around. Radical Islamists have been calling for our destruction all over the world, including in Iran, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen, even London. Let’s go get ‘em.

I’m not sorry al-Awlaki is dead. And I’m not sorry Osama bin Laden is dead. But where do we now draw the line? Does this not set precedent that the United States government, at the discretion of any president, can select our enemies — while not in a field of combat — by crossing the borders of another nation and kill them at will, then pump fists as though we’re heroes?

Who’s next?

The media went into a frenzy lauding President Obama for the killing of Osama bin Laden. But few thought about the process. According to reports, by the time the SEAL team reached him, Bin Laden was unarmed and shot down in cold blood. He could have been captured and tried, humiliated, punished and excoriated to serve an example of the fate of future terrorists. But that was not the case. He was murdered at the behest of the president. And any intelligence information about his network that would have become public, died with him.

His body was whisked off and secretly shuttled to an American warship where he was given (allegedly) a Muslim service and buried at sea. No pictures. No media criticism.

Is Osama bin Laden really dead?

Probably.

If we are going to talk about living by the rule of law, then we have to live by that rule. If this administration is going to berate the previous administration for abuse of power, then it must — by all accounts — be cautious not to abuse its own power.

Some folks say it’s all part of war. But I don’t remember a war being declared by congress against any entity, any nation or any person. So, where and by what authority does the United States have to invade the sovereignty of another country, uninvited, for the purpose of seeking out and assassinating another human being, especially a legal citizen of this country?

How would Americans feel if we learned that Vladimir Putin dispatched a stealth team of Russian assassins into Dallas or Miami to kill an enemy of their country? In the United States, that would be labeled a First Degree Murder.

In no way do I defend al Awlaki or bin Laden, or any of their ilk. I have always been a hawk on issues of national security. But if we think we’ve dealt a blow to the terrorist network around the globe, we should think again. The Jihadist organizations are in many counties in the world, with riches galore at their disposal and thousands of martyrs-to-be in waiting to ascend to a heaven filled with dancing virgins. Stamping out Osama bin Laden or Anwar al-Awlaki is like killing two big sharks in the ocean. Then what? Do we really think this is going to put a stop to international terror?

Global terrorism is rooted, not in one or two people, but in an ideology that is pervasive around the world: Radical Islam. We are not at war against al Qaeda, though some would have you think that. We are at war against an ideology that spans the globe, in more than seventy countries. Al Qaeda is a mere regiment in an Army that is focused on eliminating the western way of life, by violence or by deceit. There are many other enemy soldiers in that war, besides al Qaeda, and some of them are living inside our borders pretending to be our friends.

One thing’s for sure: By using assassination as a tool to combat terrorists, it by-passes the trial process in which prosecuting teams would delve very deeply into the backgrounds, lives and associations of the accused, with the potential to reveal mountains of information that will now remain secret.

Makes you wonder. Was there another motive?
