"DHS to intensify attacks on
freedom oriented citizens"
Within the last two weeks several tips came into the Examiner indicating pending dangers to certain groups of citizens. These tips led to a source who, speaking on condition of anonymity, alleges that just after the election a major initiative will be launched against citizens whose values are diametrically opposite to that of Barack Obama and the current Washington elitist leadership in Congress. According to the source, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will greatly intensify its attacks on freedom oriented citizens.
The source indicated that the those within DHS and the rest of the Obama Administration who support a massive crackdown on the liberties of citizens are ready to make a dramatic move once the midterm elections in November are over. These particular government employees, particularly those at the top levels, believe that Christians, Tea Party participants, and those who support the Constitution and oppose Obama and his "progressive" agenda are dangerous and need to be subjected to a purge.
This purge would be in the form of prosecution through the courts. The objective would be to silence their voices and remove them from society by tossing them into prison where they could spend years and a ton of money attempting to get out of jail and defend their reputations. The "progressives" in the administration and Congress believe that the lame duck period just after the November midterm elections is the time to move swiftly to get these things done. Obama doesn't have to face reelection. And if the internal polling being done by both Democrats and Republicans is true, the Democrats will be forced into minority status in the Senate in addition to the House. Thus, in the two months after the election prior to the time when the new Congress is sworn in in January of 2015, a golden opportunity exists for the "progressive" elitist tyrants to make their move. After all, they have nothing to lose.
Although the tip concerning this information came within the last two weeks, the publication of it was on hold until more verification could be received. That verification came today in an article written by colleague David Codrea, who is the National Gun Rights Examiner.
Shortly after the election of Barack Obama, it became all too clear that DHS intended to lay the foundation for a massive purge of Christians and liberty oriented citizens. Internal memos were discovered that referred to these citizens as "potential homegrown terrorists." The objective was to crank up the propaganda machine in an effort to malign, demonize, and ruin the reputations of otherwise good citizens so that eventually it would be easier to persecute and prosecute them without running too far afield of public opinion.
In 2012 the Examiner received at least one document from DHS that listed the various categories of citizens that would be deemed as "potential homegrown terrorists." This document is one of the most important, but as you will see, it has been revised to include an apologetic to counteract the heavy criticism the report received. DHS used this report to compile its policy on "potential homegrown terrorists."
But not once was Islamic extremists mentioned. Those whom DHS mentioned specifically is very telling -- Ron Paul supporters, gun owners and gun rights activists, those who promote the Constitution as the final rule of law, U.S. war veterans returning home from overseas, those who support the right of Israel to exist, evangelical Christians and others who are pro-life and who believe the Bible and take it seriously, Tea Party activists, conservative voters who take to the streets to march or to demonstrate in opposition to high taxes, runaway government spending, Obamacare, and other programs of the "progressives" in the current administration. Michelle Malkin provided this report on the issue at the time.
So controversial were these DHS pronouncements that angry citizens began calling their elected representatives. When it became clear that this mindset at DHS may become a political liability for Democrats seeking election or reelection, the agency backed off its public statements concerning "potential homegrown terrorists." It did not help matters for the elitists that a series of high profile terrorist actions, conducted by Islamic extremists, made the news and only confirmed in the minds of most Americans that DHS had its eye on all of the wrong people. While they were watching us "conservative Christians clinging to our guns and Bibles," the Islamo-fascists were busy at work behind the scenes planning a resurgence. And now, at least half of what our men and women in the military fought for, and gave their lives for, have fallen back into the hands of Islamic extremists who behead their opposition. Not only does this denote a failed Obama foreign policy but it clearly demonstrates that the current administration does not care about the spread of extremist Islam. They had rather go after ordinary citizens who disagree with their warped view of the world.
Against that backdrop, David Codrea reports that DHS issued a report Friday that once again places the spotlight on an odd group of people to be tracking -- ordinary U.S. citizens who once again are being tarred and feathered verbally as "potential homegrown terrorists." This time, however, their specific target is U.S. gun owners, 99 percent of whom never use their firearms to commit crimes.
DHS tipped its hand when it cited as a basis for its report the discredited and dangerous Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which never saw a gun owner it did not hate nor a conservative Christian it did not view as deranged. This organization is a million times worse than anything Joe McCarthy did in the Senate in the 1950s when he warned that Communists had infiltrated the U.S. government. They had. And his charges were confirmed when the old KGB was forced to open its books after the demise of the old Soviet Union, and the new Russian president Boris Yeltsin ordered that those secret records be made public. It turns out that McCarthy was 95 percent correct. But the SPLC can claim no such accuracy. They have maligned and falsely charged a plethora of individuals as "racists" or "anti-government extremists" with absolutely no basis upon which to issue such a charge.
Codrea notes that one of the incidents that SPLC is now using to malign gun owners is the standoff at the Bundy Ranch. Not only did SPLC get many of its facts wrong but it claims that supporters of Bundy prove that they are dangerous homegrown extremists who wish to attack the government. Many gun owners went to the Bundy Ranch to provide protection for Bundy as dozens of government snipers took aim at the Bundy family, ready to blow them all away. Thus, they were there to protect a fellow citizen from government snipers who apparently were ready to initiate another Ruby Ridge or Waco.
Apparently SPLC is oblivious to the possibility that citizens can support the right of a fellow citizen to keep and bear arms and have control over his property without supporting all of that citizen's political views. Bundy's views may be problematic for many gun owners, but that does not prevent us from protecting his right to be on that property and to keep and bear arms.
In spite of its dubious agenda, SPLC was used as an important source for Friday's report issued by DHS. This does not bode well for the next step. If the anonymous source mentioned above is correct, this is all a precursor to massive government action to silence all of the administration's most effective critics.
I am not afraid of any world government. That is why I have no problem in stating these certain Facts!
Obama puts Terrorist in power (muslim brotherhood) and arms America's and Israel's enemies, on going, since elected, Has declared open war on Christians and conservatives in the U.S., supports every whacked out ideology and cult, refuses to do more than send a few soldiers(less than a High School football game) into danger, Uses the term"Boots on Ground"( when it should be boots up the backside of the Fascist criminal Obama). uses a fake name to impress other idiots. I could go on, but everyone knows that this foreigner/president is doing all he can. (to kill off Christians and Hebrews) and usher in the Final Judgement of God. He's right on schedule now.
If any of you are too cowardly to say what you really mean, or stand up for what you believe, then Join Boehner in the Democrat Party. (I like how spell check always puts up Boehner's real name "Boner")
How many Liberals are in the Tea Party these days? Just read some of the Two Faced Post supporting the Fascist in Power in the Republican Party.
Over 500 million "peace loving individuals" have been slaughtered by fanatics in the past 100 years. How many more will have to die at the hands of Islamic "fanatics" before we wake up and kill them before they kill us? They will NEVER be our friends.
A German's View on Islam - worth reading. This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist. A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. 'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.' We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam. The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers. The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous. Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.. China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people. The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?
History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun... Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.
As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts--the fanatics who threaten our way of life. Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just ignore this contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. Let us hope that thousands, world-wide, read this and think about it. Now Islamic prayers have been introduced into Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in Ottawa too, while the Lord's Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?). The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in.
And we are silent.......
Dearborn, Michigan makes the news. This is from a fellow who lives and works in Dearborn!
Can't work in the school system front offices if you don't speak Arabic now and need to know many dialects as some Arabs can't understand others Arabic language. Everybody goes back to the homeland for months and expects to get passed on to the next grade. It's crazy as I am at ground zero on this.
Kids (assuming girls, can't tell for sure) roaming the hallways in full blown burkes; kids attending classes that can't speak or understand English.
All school monies are being moved from the English end of town (Irish, Polish, Italian, etc. Etc. Kids) to the east end (95% Arabic) in the attempt to prop up the poorly performing schools. 6th graders are reading at a 3rd grade level, forget math and sciences.
Everybody gets free breakfasts and lunches… after being dropped off in Land Rovers - and the cars of choice here, Mercedes or Escalade. It is very common to have 3 families live in 1 house.
All garages are being converted into living spaces complete with stoves (against all building codes) and the city council can't find the nerve to enforce the safety regulations. Cars end up parked all over the streets affecting snow plowing, garbage pick-up, ambulance runs, etc. If this doesn't scare you, you haven't been watching what has happened to our country in recent years.
I bet you can't guess what this is!

Well, it's part of the instructions for how to apply for food stamps in the great state of Michigan in Arabic!!
I actually called the Michigan Dept. Of Human Services to check this out and it is true.
Have we gone completely nuts??!!
Why you ask???? Obama spent several million dollars to have Palestininian Muslims immigrated to Michigan... why??
Muslim men are allowed to have as many as 4 wives. Many Muslims have immigrated into the U.S. and brought their 2-3-or 4 wives with them, but the U.S. does not allow plural marriages, so the man lists one wife as his, and signs the other 2 or 3 up as extended family on welfare and other free Government programs!
Michigan has the highest population of Muslims in the United States...
When President Obama took office the United States paid several millions of dollars to have a large number of Palestinians, (All Muslim), emigrated here from Palestine. Why? We don't pay for other persons to immigrate here, and I'm sure that some of those Muslims moved into Michigan with the large current number of Muslims already established there.
So now in Michigan when you call the Public Assistance office you are told to “Press 1 for English. Press 2 for Spanish, or Press 3 for Arabic”!
CHECK IT OUT YOURSELF - Here is the number 1-888-678-8914 Every time you add a new language to an American program it requires an additional number of persons fluent in that language to process those persons who refuse to learn English in order to live here at an additional cost to the taxpayer! Why are we even allowing persons to immigrate here who cannot provide for themselves, and putting them in our welfare system?
Press 3 for Arabic. This is quite alarming!!! This seems to have happened clandestinely, for, as far as I know, no public announcement or opportunity to vote on this was offered to the American people.
They're just adopting an official stance, and very likely using tax-payer money for it, in various capacities, without public knowledge or approval.
The following link takes you into the State of Michigan Public Assistance page, (as in Food Stamps etc.). You won't have to scroll far before you see the assistance-letters options for... (Get this)... English, Spanish, and ARABIC!!!
When did the ARABIC option sneak into our culture? Will we soon have to listen to our governmental offices, stores, and other venues offer us the option of "pressing 3 for ARABIC?"
Check it out for yourself.

Please inform every American you know, that this is happening. It is outrageous! The camel's nose is literally now OFFICIALLY under the tent!
YOU’RE TAX DOLLARS AT WORK! AND YOU’RE COUNTRY BEING TAKEN FROM WITHIN!
America is the HOSTAGE… but WHO is the Terrorist?
The Obama tactic of blame calling and ridicule remind me of two things.
In high school anybody who was being an outrageous axxhole got the crap beat out of him.
The “terrible twos” tantrum used be treated with a slap on the butt… today it is isolation.
THAT, in a nutshell, IS Obama.
He shouts daily that Republicans are holding America hostage. The TRUTH is it is Obama being a community organizer instead of a National Leader. His tactics are straight from Sal Alinsky. Period.
As usual, the TRUTH is just the opposite of what comes from the Chicago Obama Gang. Gang Obama and Little putrid harry reid are holding America hostage. The House has sent a dozen bills to the Senate about funding. Little Putrid harry will not allow any votes. Obama refuses to negotiate. THAT is HOSTAGE TAKING. They will NOT RELEASE America. It is time for a spanking or a time-out. Put them in their room till they wise up.
The lawlessness of gang Obama must stop! His Crimes must be told!
They cannot run around every day jamming Obamacare down our throats as “the law” and then decide which part THEY will choose to ignore or enforce. I have as much authority to change obamacare as does Obama…. Maybe more since I can Vote for Change….
The crisis –upon-crisis is now the debt ceiling. They are hoping to obfuscate, cloud, the issues in hopes of sliding Obamacare funding off to the back burner. Both issues are the same. America does NOT want either Obamacare or more and more of unlimited debt. Our Security from those that want to Destroy us is at stake if we do not eliminate our debt. The Commander of our Armed Forces told us that on National TV.
The Obamacare issue is simple. ALL spending authorizations must originate in our House of Representatives. IF the House believes that something should not be funded, it is their duty to not fund. THAT is our Constitution at work…. The rules…. Which Obama refuses to accept even though he SWORE to uphold them, but is known to pick and chose which ones HE WILL ENFORCE. THAT, in a nutshell is why he has disqualified himself from any semblance of integrity and authority.
THEY will argue that Obamacare is the law. So was Prohibition. And the prelude to repeal of Obamacare is fiscal starvation, paralysis ; else we will have the modern day version of moonshiners in healthcare..
THEY will argue that the debt ceiling must be raised to pay for spending we already did. But they refuse to engage any sensible discussions about assuring we don’t face the same problem again. THEY should be reminded that the record is perfect…EVERY time the debt ceiling was raised, debt expanded to need another increase. THEY should be reminded that doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result is the essential definition of insanity. If anybody is insane it is Gang Obama.
IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH HIM?
There is only one basis for going forward. ANY discussion of increasing the debt ceiling MUST include discussion of measures to rein in unlimited, out-of-control, spending. The People have spoken 62% believe the Debt ceiling should not be increased after significant reductions in Spending.
Any ACTION toward raising the debt limit MUST be preceded by ACTION to assure spending is brought under control. The situation is simple. IF we continue the insane cycle of raise-spend-raise-spend, someday we will default. It might as well be now so that we can get on with a true fix. Gang Obama has already raised the Taxes Significantly with the highest tax increase in many Years and we still will spend $700 Billion dollars more than the Federal Revenue. Are we Rome? Have we reached the point of demise of the United States? China is now concerned we have and are telling us to get our financial house in order!STAND YOUR GROUND. BE FIRM. DO NOT BACK DOWN. THIS IS “IT”…IT IS TIME FOR SIGNIFICANT REDUCTIONS IN SPENDING!!!
As an Honorably Discharged Veteran of the U.S. Army(1974) and the U.S. Navy(1979) I fully support ALL of our Servicemen all over the globe. The embarrassment of having to serve under an Anti-American like Barry Obummer must be disheartening. My Prayers go out for all of you. Impeach Obama, NOW!
Also, The base in Guantanamo Bay,Cuba is now a Luxury Resort for the Islamic Terrorist there compared to the conditions We had back in 1977-78. We,the military stationed there then, had No A/C, NO access to Multiple TV stations, and rare calls to home from call centers only.
I say that the incarcerated Terrorist now there should stop the whining and be subjected to the same or worse conditions that our military was back then. Add in Hard Labor and no further outside communications and they won't want to get involved in terrorist activities quite as much again.
No more Desert Island Vacations for Terrorist anymore. Gitmo can be a Top Notch Rehab for them now.
So now anyone in the Tea Party is an "anarchist"..... And anyone who disbelieves what our government has told us about 9/11 is a "terrorist" (FBI said that yesterday, disseminated to all law enforcement nation-wide) http://www.infowars.com/fbi-calls-half-of-populace-with-911-doubts-potential-terrorists/
Does anyone see the parallels I am seeing?
In July 1996 TWA flight 800 "exploded" 12 minutes after takeoff killing all on-board off the NY coast. The WORLD was told it was a fuel tank explosion.... the shakedown was all aircraft manufacturers, owners and operators spent billions of dollars re-wiring all passenger and private aircraft to prevent this "tragedy" from happening again.....
Notable is the fact that there were a lot of eyewitness "bystanders" (200 of them) who all claimed they saw a streak of light (like a missile) arching from the ground to the plane, which then blew up...... The NTSB continued to claim (for 17 years) it was a fuel tank explosion....
In August of 2013 it FINALLY came out that a missile was the cause - not a fuel tank explosion and the eyewitnesses were right all along.... to date; no one has been charged with the murder of those passengers.... all 230 of them............
On September 11, 2001 we were told radical Islamist's flew planes into the Twin Towers in NYC. The world was told America had suffered a "terrorist" attack - this became the grounds and reason for the "war of terror" and the implementation of the "patriot act". More than 3,000 people died........
A "plane" also allegedly flew into the Pentagon as well, damaging it but not destroying it.... Notable is the fact that the day before 9/11; September 10, 2001, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld told the world there was $2.3 TRILLION dollars MISSING from the DOD budget..... The "aircraft" that hit the Pentagon "coincidentally" happened to strike the Pentagon at the EXACT location of the room that housed the computers and memory storage that the missing $2.3 trillion dollars might have been found (audit trail) - destroying all the computers and memory storage.... It is also notable that the hole found in the side of the Pentagon where this "aircraft" struck was a ROUND hole..... completely unlike the hole in a building one would expect to find from a passenger aircraft striking a building.... and the corresponding aircraft WINGS impacting the building...... and BTW; there was no engine or landing gear wreckage found..... (titanium and high carbon steel)
A group of 2,500 Architects, Engineers and Demolitions Experts have banded together and question the "findings" of the government about 9/11. (short version) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ddz2mw2vaEg
The essence of their proof lies with eyewitness testimony (Police, Firefighter's, civilians) and video's of the buildings themselves.... These folks demand an unbiased investigation.... there are a lot of points that the government explanation cannot explain.... JP8 (jet fuel) doesn't burn hot enough to melt steel - yet on the videos.... molten steel can clearly be seen pouring out of the sides of the buildings as they burn..... The building was designed and Engineered specifically with the thought in mind it might someday be hit by a jet aircraft - and it was designed to stand and remain in place should it ever be hit.... that didn't happen and they fell down....
The buildings fell in their own footprint - unlike the chaos that SHOULD have been the result of an uncontrolled fire in a building.... The buildings fell EXACTLY like you would expect them to fall - IN A CONTROLLED DEMOLITION!
There have been incidents where the government has been somehow involved... and people died as a result. Quite possibly what people call a "false flag".
The aurora shooting; The shooter had no knowledge or history or the availability of knowledge to obtain and wear all the ballistic gear he was wearing or the bombs he booby-trapped his apartment with..... A second identical gas mask to the one the shooter was wearing was found in the far end of the parking lot - and later ignored by MSM and the Police..... the shooter entered the theater from the back door, which locks on closing.... who let him in?
In Sandy Hook - DHS was running an "exercise" about an "active shooter" less than two miles from the Sandy Hook elementary school.... For months, claims were made the shooter used an AR-15 rifle - and to this date, the Police reports are unavailable to anyone....
In the Boston Bombing - DHS was running an "right-wing radical bomber" exercise during and within the Boston Marathon.... muslims blew up a pressure-cooker bomb and allegedly killed people - yet there are also eye witness accounts and video accounts of ACTORS who had already suffered amputations in the past... playing as if they had been injured in the "bombing".....
Folks - I think our nation is in desperate need of a "reset" to bring us back to a Constitutional Republic - and get us away from the police state and a corrupt government we appear to be headed into.... I am coming to the conclusion we are being played - and have been lied to far longer than simply the obama years.... I am beginning to question just what our government has been up to the past 40-50 years....... and who all was involved. And why.
The Muslim Brotherhood's Coptic Kristallnacht
Andrew Doran, writing at National Review, calls the current wave of anti-Coptic violence in Egypt a Coptic version of Kristallnacht:
The Muslim Brotherhood’s systematic and coordinated attacks against Christians in Egypt are reminiscent of Kristallnacht in Germany in 1938, when Nazi paramilitaries systematically vandalized Jewish homes, businesses, and synagogues and murdered scores of Jews in a disturbing foreshadowing of the fate of European Jews over the next few years. It is no accident that many Jews, including Barry Rubin and Jeffrey Goldberg, have been quick to raise the alarums over the persecution of Christians: They recognize the dangerous signs. “They have hatred in their hearts,” says Thabet of the Brotherhood, echoing observations commonly made of the National Socialists in 20th-century Germany.
The Brotherhood has been going on an orgy of destruction in revenge for the ouster of Mohamed Morsi. The property damage includes 40 churches and an unknown number of homes, businesses and cars belonging to Christians. In some cases the sites are marked with red paint and later burned.
Today there is a story of a group of nuns being marched "through the battle-torn streets of Cairo ‘like prisoners of war’" And as the Egyptian military attempts to quell this violence the Brotherhood manages to make itself out as the victims of violence in the media.
There have been voices in the media and in the region warning about the threat presented by the rise of the Brotherhood, but the Obama administration long ago placed all of its chips on the transformative power of political engagement with extremists. At the moment that is looking like a foolish bet.
Finally, it's worth noting that the religious persecution of Christians, mostly at the hands of Muslims, is an ongoing problem which is rarely recognized by western media.
So, the Muslims are Nazi Germany and Christians are the Jews.
Are we going to do nothing to protect them before the Holocaust?
The last paragraph seems to sum it up.
Chris Matthews Attempted to Pin Boston Terrorism on Conservatives Last week America again became the tragic victim of terrorism. Yet, as Americans were trying to grasp the full measure of an act which caused death, injuries and mayhem, the nation was assaulted again. This time it was the liberal media bias of a pundit whose sole job was to not bring comfort and truth to a nation on edge. Instead, Chris Matthew, anchor of an MSNBC news show, chose to pin this atrocity on conservatives and Tea Party members.
As the nation continues to cope with the possibility of connections to outside state sponsored terrorist plots involving Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, Matthews chose to yet again attack innocent Americans who support and defend America’s laws and the U.S. Constitution.
What comfort does a person like Chris Matthews draw from spewing vitriolic hatred toward the Tea Party by hoping the act of terrorism was committed by a “white person who is right-wing?” The absurdity of this could be easily dismissed if it were dripping from the lips of an inebriated bar fly sitting in a watering hole. But, this salacious assault was spewed into the public arena from his ratings challenged MSNBC cable show.
Unfortunately recent history has been marked by liberal journalists who have chosen to alarm America with unproven statements of condemnation against conservatives and Tea Party members.
ABC did this in July of 2012 when Brian Ross, ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent, erroneously and callously linked an innocent Colorado man and Tea party member as being the bomber in Aurora, Colorado. Instead it turned out the real killer was a James Holmes, who just happened to be a Democrat.
That was left unreported by the liberal media. What purpose does it serve to strike fear with persistent lies, except if one’s intention is to engage in a strategic campaign of misdirection and annihilation? Americans who were seeking as much critical information as possible during those crucial hours and days after this terror attack deserved better.
Is anyone surprised that the Senate couldn't get any straight answers from Holder on the possibility of drone strikes on Americans within the U.S.? And why hasn't the outcry over this been louder, with the exception of the fine efforts of Sen. Paul and his handful of allies, in light of this administrations deliberately hazy definition of a drone strike's justification. And yet Holder couldn't decide if he believed the President had the right to order such a strike on U.S. soil? Now this morning something strange happened to Eric Holder. Something that no one has ever seen before. He woke up with a desire to do his job. By now I'm sure that you've heard about his letter to Sen. Paul, about 24 hours too late. "Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?" "The answer to that question is no." Holder finally admitted.
The President does not have that authority. But then, he didn't have the authority to force Americans to buy health insurance either. He didn't have the authority to order military strikes against Lybia a few years ago. Although he had the obligation to do so last September 11th, but chose to do nothing. He didn't have the authority to appoint three recess nominations when the Senate wasn't in recess. And the list goes on and on. But now we're expected to believe that no such drone strikes will be ordered on American soil just because the President doesn't have the authority to order them?
And this administration has done nothing but muddy the definition of terrorist. A few months ago Joe Biden likened conservatives to terrorists. Is that going to be the standard? A person's political or social belief? Or some other form of affiliation? Recently Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, has sent a letter to the Justice Department marking members of Patriot groups as "non-Islamic domestic terrorists". In spite of the fact that there has been no acts of terrorism linked to members of any such group.
Gone are the good old days when we were just labeled as "racist" for demanding fiscal sanity, a smaller federal government, and adherence to the constitution. Now the new label is to be "terrorist". And this label might be followed with another nasty little surprise. Authority or no authority.
So what is considered a terrorist under this administration, and how is that definition likely to be expanded in the near future? If you're opposed to gay marriage, are you a terrorist? If you want a balanced budget, are you a terrorist? If you don't drive a hybrid, are you a terrorist? If you forget to floss, are you a terrorist? Or is that label handed down on the whim of our "glorious and all knowing" dictator, Comrade Obama?
If you remember to look up at the sky while you're going about your day give a nice wave to the drones up there. After all, they're still just the "friendly" unweaponized surveillance variety. For now. And God bless America. We're going to need all the help we can get.
The Towers, Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania were crashed into due to multiple failures by the US government, not because of one security guard or a razor blade.
Aviation security can be achieved without the abuse of our Constitutional rights or sensibilities. For instance, not one single of the measures our passengers endure would have stopped any of the 9-11 hijackers.
The traveling public has been unaware that it was the policy of the FAA and U.S. Government that pilots were instructed to cooperate with hijackers. The rash of AMAL/PLO terrorists’ sky-jacking became such an epidemic throughout the 1980’s, T.W.A came to mean: Travel With AMAL.
All a hijacker had to do was threaten to harm someone or say he planted a bomb, and the plane would be diverted to Cuba, Beirut or Entebbe. Al-Qaeda 9-11 planners exploited this policy and that was how they took over these aircraft.
The TSA employee’s have a tough job without question, but it is the policy and techniques that are unquestionably egregious, invasive and in reality, ineffective. Every procedure is a primarily a search for explosives, disguised as something else or laden underneath a person’s clothes or in their shoes. Firearms are countered by armed security personnel in proximity to the screening area.
The reality is a terrorist willing to blow themselves up will do it just as readily on board the aircraft as they would standing on line with literally hundreds of passengers. The TSA employee that is searching routinely for such an explosive device is completely unprepared to cope with it if they find it.
An explosion at the screening area, with hundreds of people present, will have the same debilitating effect on the industry as it would on the plane. The electronic strip search may detect an explosive, but it does nothing to neither deter nor stop it from detonating on the spot.
I personally surveyed Domodeveo Airport outside Moscow, where the terrorist brought their luggage to the arrival area, placed it down, walked away, and detonated it with a cell phone from the safety of their parked car at the drop off area. I participated with a Global Security Group, consisting of security experts from every technical field, which published a white paper, we submitted to the Committee during the “Underwear Bomber” hearings.
They described evasive countermeasures; for instance a pilot captain could take at their own discretion, such as flight controlled turbulence, employing the laws of aero-dynamics, centrifugal forces and power of gravity, that would incapacitate anyone who is not buckled into their seat, until such time they are subdued.
The mutual consensus is it was not the fault of private security that 9-11 happened, nor will replacing them with a programmed, predictable response beauracracy, out-think a thinking enemy. The terrorist plotter’s exploited the policy of cooperation and surrender. The TSA has faced many accusations and criticisms, but they will never be accused of out-smarting a determined, well planned attacker.
Aviation security world wide is achieved by a multi-dimensional approach; intelligence sharing, technology, profiling and a benign interview process employing trade secrets that I will not divulge here.
The U.S. government should not be in the abrogating the Bill of Rights for the illusion of safety business. Responsible and effective, holistic approaches, using trade secret techniques will protect the flying public. Benjamin Franklin warned us; “Those who surrender liberty for security, will have neither.” Such is the case here.
The TSA should be replaced with innovative security professionals without surrendering, liberty nor security.
