Within hours of his detention, Secretary of State John Kerry meets privately with the Saudi Foreign Minister. Shortly thereafter, President Obama also meets privately with the Saudi Foreign Minister. By the next day, Ali-Alharbi is ordered deported for “national security reasons.” Within days, however, he disappears and Obama Administration officials deny any knowledge of him.
I will leave it for you, Dear Reader, to decide what this all means.
Almost before the dust and smoke cleared away from yesterday’s terror attack at the Boston Marathon, the socialist left began their own attack on conservatives. Several leftist journalists began speculating that the attack was the responsibility of conservatives on the right. Charles P. Pierce wrote in Esquire magazine warned his readers to avoid jumping to conclusions and to avoid blaming the attack on “foreign terrorism.” He then went on to remind his readers that the bombing coincided with Patriot’s Day, and the then connected it all to Timothy McVeigh – the Oklahoma City bomber. He apparently struck a chord with his socialist liberal readers, as one commenter wrote, “I’ll bet good money it’s a right-wing nutjob. Today is April 15, Boston Harbor was where the original Tea Party took place and the on-going gun-safety legislation makes it [the Tea Party] the mostly likely culprit.”
Peter Bergen, a “National Security Analyst” with CNN, speculated that the bomb used could have been made with “conventional explosives, … that might be another kind of right-wing extremism.” Al Sharpton’s radio producer Nida Khan offered her speculation in a Tweet in which she wrote, “We don’t know anything yet of course, but it is tax day & my first thought was all these anti-gov groups, but who knows.” And Nicholas Kristof, a columnist for the New York Times also took to Twitter in order to connect the attack to the GOP. He wrote, “explosion is a reminder that ATF needs a director. Shame on Senate Republicans for blocking apptment.”
ABC News consultant Brad Garrett, a former FBI agent who claims to be an expert in Criminal Investigations, offered his speculations on the “ABC Monday” program. Garrett explained that it was possible that a domestic right-wing extremist could have carried out the attack. He based his speculation on the date of the attack, saying that other domestic extremist events had occurred during the date range of April 15-20, including the Oklahoma City bombing, and the Columbine and Virginia Tech shootings. It should also be noted that Garrett himself has admitted that he has not had one single “conversation with the FBI or anybody else about investigating terrorism.”
MSNBC “reporter” Chris Matthews also offered his speculation within just hours of the attack. Matthews said, “Normally domestic terrorists, people, tend to be on the far right.” And even president Obama, according to his former advisor David Axelrod, speculated the attack may been carried out because it was “tax day” (a day often cited as a day of rebellion by anti-government groups).
With all of the “speculative possibilities” being tossed around by the socialist left like Frisbees at a beach party, I have to wonder why they are automatically pointing the finger at conservatives as being responsible.
“Speculative Possibilities” are just that – speculation, and in the case of the above examples they are speculation based not on any evidence (circumstantial or otherwise), but solely on the bigoted bias of those who are making these statements. They are, or should be aware, that their words carry weight due to their status as public figures. Although they (for the most part?) qualify their speculations with poorly worded caveats after the fact, they have made their statement, and their followers, especially those who tend to more weak-minded, will parrot those speculations, often referring to them as fully evidenced fact. These socialist liberal talking heads will have sent their message out to the masses: “It was conservatives who blew up the Boston Marathon.”
This, of course, again begs the question of why? Why would they intentionally ignore any vestige of journalistic ethics or morals, and lay the blame for this obvious terror attack at the feet of conservatives? Why would they be so willing to spread such a rumor without any evidence whatsoever to support it? It is my opinion that they sincerely hope this attack can be linked somehow to a conservative or right-wing individual or group. In fact, I believe they want this so badly, so passionately, that they will spin this attack in any way they can to support their perverted desire. For if it can be linked in any way to a conservative or right-wing individual or group, the socialist left will use it to further vilify and slander those on the right, and they will use this attack to press for further erosion of our legal rights – just as they used the Sandy Hook Massacre to justify their attack on the Second Amendment.
In closing, I would like to point out that as of this moment, there have been no suspects named or indicated in this terrible attack. That being said, however, there have been news reports today (and yesterday) that an unnamed Saudi national has been detained (voluntarily and not arrested) is being questioned. His residence has been searched and items have been removed. It is entirely possible that he will be cleared of any involvement.
In addition, an al-Qaeda propagandist suggested last year that al-Qaeda members and affiliates currently in the United States should target a sporting event for a terrorist attack, as a way to punish America for its interference in the Middle East. He wrote “This is done by targeting human crowds in order to inflict maximum human losses. This is very easy since there are numerous such targets such as crowded sports arenas, annual social events, large international exhibitions, crowded market-places, skyscrapers, crowded buildings … etc. It is possible for ordinary Resistance fighters among the Muslims residing in America and the allied Western countries to target them, in order to participate in the jihad and the Resistance, and to stretch out a helping hand to the mujahidun.”
And, there have been unconfirmed reports of known muslim jihadists in both Pakistan and Afghanistan being arrested in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing, and there have also been reports that in its online forum, al-Qaeda is being credited with carrying out yesterdays terror attack as a response to a U.S. military airstrike last week that killed several Taliban leaders.
At no time, however, have any conservative or right-wing individuals or groups claimed responsibility, or been arrested, or questioned, or implicated by any reputable law enforcement agency or spokesperson – in spite of the socialist left’s attempts to spin the attack in that direction.
This is a bit long at 74 minutes, but it is well worth sitting down and watching. A lot of great information, that will be an eye-opener for some, a wake up call for others, and a valuable education for all.
And I am expected to be tolerant of Islam, why?
I received this in an email this morning and thought I would pass it along.
Can a good Muslim be a good American?
Theologically - no.. Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon god of Arabia.
Religiously - no... Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam. (Quran, 2:256)(Koran)
Scripturally - no... Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.
Geographically - no.. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
Socially - no... Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.
Politically - no.... Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan.
Domestically - no... Because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him. (Quran 4:34 )
Intellectually - no.. Because he cannot accept the AmericanConstitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
Philosophically - no... Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.
Spiritually - no... Because when we declare 'one nation under God,' The Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran's 99 excellent names.
Clearly then, a Muslim cannot be both a 'good' Muslim and a 'good' American. Call it “racism”, call it “Islamophobia”, call it what you wish, but whatever you call it, it's still an undeniable fact, and one we as a country would do well to remember.
Last Sunday, The Muslim Foundation held their annual Muslim Day Parade in New York City. Among the several speakers and event attendees, flying prominently was the black war flag of muslim jihadists. As the so-called “moderate” muslim jihadists took to the stage to spew their anti-America hatred, one of the events VIP grand marshal’s, New York Senator Tony Avella finally had enough and he walked off the stage and left the event. When asked why, his response was, “I was offended.” An interesting turn of events given that President Obama was recently giving a speech at the United Nations condemning slander of the islamic prophet mohammed. I wonder when Obama will condemn slander by muslims against America? I probably shouldn’t hold my breath.
The Urban Infidel was there, and has much, much more at the Urban Infidel website. Have a look.
Now here’s a novel idea – let’s make every day a “Draw Mohammed Day” or a “Burn the Koran Day.” Not because we would want to offend Muslims, but as a direct response to the mentally defective Muslims who enjoy rampaging around the world. Every time they burn an American flag, we should burn a koran. Every time they flash one of their “Islam Will Dominate”, or “Freedom Go To Hell” or other anti-American signs, we should all post a drawing of mohammed online. In other words, an eye for an eye. Trying to be nice to them doesn’t work. Helping them out doesn’t work. In fact, thus far nothing has worked to calm them down. It’s as if rampaging is somehow part of their religion. Oh wait, it is. So maybe it’s time to take a stand. If their rampaging and rioting and murder and arson is an offense to you, then by all means feel free to offend them right back. Not only is it your right as an American under the Second Amendment, but maybe, just maybe, they will get the message.
Any Westerner can now buy a Koran for a dollar and burn it, while any Muslim with a platform can transform that act into a fighting offense. As passions rise on both sides of the divide, Western provocateurs and Islamist hotheads have found each other, as confrontations occur with increasing frequency.
Which prompts this question: What would happen if publishers and managers of major media outlets reached a consensus -- “Enough of this intimidation, we will publish the most famous Danish Muhammad cartoon every day, until the Islamists tire out and no longer riot”? What would happen if Korans were recurrently burned?
Would repetition inspire institutionalization, generate ever-more outraged responses, and offer a vehicle for Islamists to ride to greater power? Or would it lead to routinization, to a wearing out of Islamists, and a realization that violence is counter-productive to their cause?
I predict the latter. A Muhammad cartoon published each day, or Koranic desecrations on a quasi-regular basis, would make it harder for Islamists to mobilize Muslim mobs. Westerners could then once again treat Islam as they do other religions – freely, to criticize without fear. That would demonstrate to Islamists that Westerners will not capitulate, that they reject Islamic law, that they are ready to stand up for their values.
Comedian, Author, Political Commentator, and well known atheist Pat Condell speaks out against the current crop of rampaging Muslims with a common sense message that I not only agree with 100%, but am a little bit jealous that I didn’t think of it – because it is just exactly how I feel. I offer it here, in its entirety (and with a complete transcript) for your edification. I only wish that it could also be sounded from the top of every building, every tower, every minaret around the world – five times each day in place of the Adhaan.
Well, once again we see multiple violent tantrums from The Religion of Permanent Offence... some things never change,
Once again we see Islam self-detonate -if you'll pardon the expression- and show - once again- why it's about as welcome on this planet as an asteroid...
Once again, we see thousands of Islamic nutcases take time out from beating-up their wives to show their sensitive side- how? By smashing-up the towns they live in, egged-on by clerical ignoramuses whose motives are even lower than the
literacy level of their followers.
And once again, we in the civilized world are being urged to censor ourselves out of respect for a religion that violates the human rights of half the people on the planet, and that doubles for a political ideology indistinguishable from Nazism- it would be funny if it wasn't so obscene... or should that be the other way 'round?
To call these riots 'infantile' and 'imbecilic' is to give them a dignity they don't deserve... they can only be described as 'Islamic'.
Let me get this straight: we're supposed to show tolerance and respect for a religion that doesn't know the meaning of either word- and goes out of it's way to prove it everyday. We're supposed to amend our values to accommodate a religion that accommodates nothing and nobody... dream on, people- it's not going to happen.
Because with Islam, it's always a one-way street: we've learned that lesson the hard way. We can't afford any more tolerance and respect- we've been sucked dry. And we've become weary of manufactured Islamic grievance: it's such a bore, that now when we hear some bearded buffoon -or bag-headed bimbo- telling us how offended they are, we can't even be bothered to laugh anymore.
Not even when the Turkish Prime Minister hilariously demands that Islamophobia be made a crime against humanity -when given the evidence- there's a much stronger case for making Islam a crime against humanity...
Besides, Turkey is already hypocritically guilty of one of the worst crimes against humanity in history – the Armenian genocide – a crime it doesn’t even have the balls to admit to.
When Muslims start showing the same level of outrage about things that are genuinely offensive -like the thousands of women and girls who are murdered and mutilated and raped every year in their countries- then we might take them a bit more seriously.
As it is, there is nothing on this planet less deserving of sympathy or respect than Muslim outrage: indeed, there's something deeply comical about it- it's so contrived and so cringe-ingly un-self-aware that it's impossible to take seriously, even if we wanted to... and nobody in their right mind wants to any more.
There was a time when Islam was given the benefit-of-the-doubt, by many people in the West- now we think it's poison, and we wish we never heard of it, because twenty years of baseless grievance-mongering and knee-jerk 'offense' have shown us this religion for what it really is, and now we don't like it, we don't trust it, and we are never going to respect it... and
we don't care how Muslims feel about that.
EVERYTHING is an 'insult' to this religion- EVERYTHING causes offence. Well, nobody gives a damn anymore, people... you've done it to death, you've killed the goose that laid the golden egg.
So now, if you're an offended Muslim, go stick your head in the oven for all we care. And if you think that if you keep up the violence, the West will eventually cave-in, it's not going to happen: even if the politicians wanted to, the people won't allow it. We'll carry-on, speaking our minds openly and freely... because it's our birthright, and it can't be taken away from us.-
it can only be given away.
And we are giving Islam nothing- because Islam gives us nothing. It's a religion permanently on the take: gimme gimme gimme is all we ever hear. Gimme respect- even though I haven't earned it. Gimme special treatment, or I'll be offended... and you'll be a 'racist'.
Well, we're sick and tired of hearing it, we're sick and tired of Islam, and we're sick and tired of the needless conflict and intimidation that comes from this religion at every turn.
All week we've heard Muslims telling us that we in the West need to understand how important The Prophet is to them: WE DO understand, and we don't care... that's the point. We don't care now, and we are never going to care... get used to it. We don't give a damn about your feelings- our feelings are more important.
And our feelings tell us we're sick to the back teeth of hearing about your religion- so stick a sock in it. And no amount of violence is going to change a thing... the more the you riot and scream and shout, the less we're going to listen: it'll simply stiffen our resolve not to be bullied and pushed-around by people whose values we don't respect... because you've given us no reason to respect them. And more to the point, because you are incapable of giving us such a reason.
In short, we will not be told what we can and cannot say- not by you, not by anybody, not now, not ever: no matter how many flags you burn, no matter how many embassies you attack...
free speech will prevail , and you'll suck-it-up and like it.
Sometimes I read the news and there is just so much to write about, but not always a large article. So, when that happens I like to just put them all together in one article with my brief comments. Enjoy. Alec Baldwin Once Again Proves He’s Pointless Alec Baldwin has once again made news across the Dextrosphere by mocking Andrew Breitbart. Of course this is nothing new as Baldwin has had a second career mocking conservatives and being an abusive parent. Not surprising, really, since the former pretty boy actor has morphed into a clone of Jabba the Hutt, and has been reduced to shilling for Capitol One credit card and appearing in 30 Rock (which is, as everyone knows, a bomb). He has made a fool of himself so often that he has finally become an irrelevant has been, and he apparently feels that making asinine comments in public is the only way to keep his name and face in the news. Sort of shows that sociopaths really do believe that negative attention is better than no attention.
Muslim Soldier Says His Faith Was Motive For Ft. Hood Bomb Plot Gee, ya think? Last year, Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo, an American GI stationed at Fort Hood, Texas made plans to bomb a Killeen, Texas restaurant full of his fellow soldiers, and shoot any survivors. During a recorded conversation with his mother, Abdo stated that “Their [Muslim’s] suffering is my suffering. … it’s all true … the reason is religion. There is no other reason.” This is the mindset of Islamic terrorists. It has nothing to do with anything the “Great Satan” (America) or the “Little Satan” (Israel) has done. It has nothing to do any military occupation of any country anywhere. The single reason any Muslim terrorist does anything, is Islam. Period. The sooner President Obama, Vice-President Biden, Nancy Pelosi, or any other far left liberal realize this, the better off we’ll all be. Remember, the only thing that motivates Muslim terrorists is Islam. Period.
_________________________________ Obama Bombs in Denver At a $500 per plate fundraiser held in Denver recently, President Obama was unable to fill the reserved seating. I guess people really are getting tired of his rhetoric and empty promises. I can only hope that this indicative of what is to come in November.
_________________________________ That Eye in the Sky May Soon Be Packing Heat! Why do these things remind me of the Wicked Witch’s Flying Monkeys? And now it seems that some jurisdictions are considering arming them? Flying monkeys with guns and tasers? And didn’t I watch this on a recent episode of Eureka, where the cast found themselves in an alternate reality where a police state existed in the futuristic town? Why, yes, actually, I did watch that episode, and it seems to me that this very scenario is playing out across America. Drones spying on Americans, and the possibility of armed drones flitting about the troposphere is very indicative of a police state. Sigh. Armed drones. What could possibly go wrong?
_________________________________ So Was Obama Born in Kenya or What? Well, according to his literary agent, Acton & Dystel, yeah, he was born in Kenya, and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. In fact, they stated this for 16 years, and with Obama’s full knowledge (come on, of course he knew). Now they are saying that this was a nothing more than a typo, but who really believes that? I mean, really, a typo that took 16 years to correct? Now I should point out that I don’t know where Obama was born, and while it is very important to know if he was born in Kenya as opposed to Hawaii, I think it is also important to recognize his mass failure as president, as well as the damage he has done (and continues to do) to this country and to the world.
_________________________________ Obama’s SAT Scores May Have Been Low. Quite Low President Barack Obama, Nobel Peace Prize winner, author, Harvard graduate, and all done with low SAT scores. Hmmmm? According to Obama, during his college days he was a lazy drug abuser who partied all weekend. Somehow I don’t think that attitude and lifestyle would be conducive to impressive test scores, or even graduating from college. But then, I could be wrong. The thing that comes to my mind, however, when I read this article is, so just how did he get into Harvard with SAT scores like that? It does make one wonder.
_________________________________ Backpeddling Away From The Truth Remember that old Johnny Cash song, Folsom Prison Blues? Although the man in that song, the inmate, admits to killing someone and being sent to prison as a result, it seems that the train George Zimmerman may be hearing is the Al Sharpton Express, coming to railroad him into prison. In a turn of events that can only be attributed to the implied threats of violence made by Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Malik Zulu Shabazz and others if Zimmerman should be acquitted, witnesses who initially corroborated Zimmerman’s account of what happened that night between Trayvon Martin and himself, have now succumbed to those implied threats and have begun to recant their earlier statements about the incident. Statements that were made while they were still fresh in their minds.
_________________________________ Obama Has Changed The World Alright! During a recent trip to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado, President Obama gave a speech during which he claimed that his policies have forged a “different world.” Well, I can’t disagree with him. During his time as president, he has made attempts to nationalize health care, he has plunged this country into the worst recession since the Great Depression, unemployment is at an all time high, illegal immigrants are flooding into this country and are protected by his policies, he has armed the drug cartels in Mexico, supported Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and other Muslim terrorist groups around the world, he has attempted to destroy Israel, he has refused to break America’s oil dependence to Saudi Arabia, gas prices are higher, food prices are higher, inflation is rampant, joblessness is rampant, and all while he has been on the job – or vacation’s at the taxpayers expense. Yeah, he’s changed the world alright!
Well, it has happened yet again. For the umpteenth time the Transportation Security Administration, the TSA, has managed to prove far beyond all reasonable doubt that they are as pointless as they are useless. Last Friday (April 27, 2012), the ironically named Newark Liberty International Airport was the scene of TSA inspired chaos when a terminal had to be evacuated, searched for bombs and terrorists, and all passengers had to be re-searched before being allowed to board their then late flights. The cause of all this mayhem was an unsearched baby. Yes, that’s right, an infant. A cherubic adorable potential terrorist in pampers whom the TSA failed to search.
) It’s incidents like these when I am tempted to use the popular WT*! acronym simply because it seems oh so appropriate and descriptive of my thoughts regarding the TSA. I mean, what in the world do they teach the TSA screeners in TSA Screener School? Do they not know how to find the terrorists the agency was created to find? Apparently not. Perhaps I can help.
Okay, all TSA agents should pay close attention here. The individuals seen in the first image are terrorists. The individuals shown in the second image are NOT terrorists. It’s pretty simple really.
Dear TSA: These are Terrorists.
Dear TSA: These are NOT Terrorists.
The TSA states on their blog that they do not profile passengers (Source), however, I would posit that the fact that they seem to focus their attention on those passengers who are clearly not terrorists, those passengers whose “profiles” are about as opposite from the “profile” of terrorists as can be, is in itself a form of passenger profiling. Sort of a “reverse profiling” if you will. In fact, the State Department recently issued an order banning the search of members of the Muslim Brotherhood, a group which has been linked to the muslim terrorist group Hamas
). This is, in my mind, further evidence of the “reverse profiling” that I mention. Has the TSA’s practice of “reverse profiling” managed to successfully stop terrorist attacks in the United States? No, actually, it has not. In fact, since 9/11 there have been 30 reported jihad attacks within the United States leaving over 100 dead and injured Americans.
) The GAO (Government Accountibility Office) has discovered that since 2004, twenty-three individuals that have been involved in terrorist plots have boarded airplanes and flown about the United States, and not once were they detected by the TSA. (Source) There have been at least 45 islamic terrorist attacks against Americans that have been prevented since 9/11. These attacks were prevented through a combined effort of intelligence agencies, local police and citizen involvement. The TSA was not involved in the prevention of any of the foiled terrorist attacks.
). In fact, there is not one documented case where the TSA have ever prevented even one terrorist attack anywhere! And, there are over 20 different islamic terrorist groups, including Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, and Islamic Jihad known to be in 28 different cities within the United States.
DEYO NOTE: Terrorists are a very real and growing threat in America and to American interests around the world. It should be assumed these are not the only cell locations within the US and that they are subject to change. (http://www.unitedstatesaction.com/usa-terror-cells.htm)
Surprisingly, the Obama administration has now declared the War of Terror to be over, and has taken the terms “war of terrorism,” jihadist,” and “global war” off the table of acceptable words within the White House. Somehow I think the islamic terrorists both within American and without either didn’t get this memo, or they are ignoring it.
). Meanwhile, back at the TSA, they have published their list of the “TSA Top 10 Good Catches of 2011,” and included on this list are such devastatingly dangerous items as snakes, turtles, birds, and a school science project. Falling just outside of their top ten list were invisible space aliens (at #13) and fish (at #11).
) And of course, let’s not forget about the cup cakes, breast milk, adult diapers, colostomy bags, and diabetic medication that the TSA has fearlessly confiscated all in the name of national security. Now, aren’t sleeping more soundly just knowing that selfless TSA agents are bravely stepping into the breach and laying their lives on the line just to keep you safe? Welcome my friends, to the TSA Theater of the Absurd.
