DHS – Napolitano out; Kelly in?

444px-Ray_Kelly_US_Commissioner_of_Customs

444px-Ray_Kelly_US_Commissioner_of_CustomsJanet Napolitano’s sudden departure from her post as the head of the Department of Homeland security was confirmed Friday by the White House. Now, reports are surfacing that New York City’s Police Commissioner may replace her.

Reacting to an LA Times report that Janet Napolitano would be taking over as the head of the University of California college system, the White House confirmed that she would be leaving DHS in September.

Commissioner Kelly may be a controversial pick. New York’s “stop and frisk” program has been widely criticized as an imposition on privacy and pushing the bounds of probable cause.

The recent controversy with the NSA’s prism program and the AP wire tap scandal may cause his nomination to be challenged by the Senate.

Napolitano’s policy actions, or lack thereof, on immigration already have Congress leery of the Department. Under direction by President Obama, Napolitano directed border agents not to enforce key border security regulations and laws.

As Congress is now dealing with a controversial immigration bill, Kelly’s confirmation is not a done deal.

New York Senator Charles Schumer (Dem) had previously publicly issued his support for Kelly as FBI director – a post Kelly turned down. Sen. Schumer is now advocating for Kelly’s nomination as DHS head.

What Difference Does it Make, As Long As We Don’t Insult Islam!

Behead Those who Insult Islam

Behead Those who Insult Islam 

 

 

Does it matter that four American men were brutally murdered by Islamists in Libya? Does it matter that two Islamists blew up a Boston street during April’s Boston Marathon? Does it matter Fort Hood, Texas was shot up by a Muslim screaming Allah Akbar as he murdered and maimed U.S. soldiers? How about those Islamic honor slaughters (Honor Killings) taking place around the United States? Should you take note or ignore them? After all, its Islamic custom to execute Muslims who reject Islam, date outside Islam, or become American and Western in thought and dress. Why should that make any difference in the way people view Islam? It’s a peaceful religion right?

I suppose Islam could be defined as peaceful since one is at peace after the knife-wielding lunatic takes one’s head.

If we want to get technical, we might even define the hacking and beheading of a British soldier by two Islamists in London this past week, as putting that innocent infidel at peace, right? 

We could even claim the Islamic Tsarneav brothers gave Boston Marathon runners and spectators a “peaceful” tribute.

Boston  Boxton bombing

To the utterly offended, I’m not joking. Islam massacres non-Muslims—as well as forced marriages of girl children, torturing and murdering adult Muslim women and gay Muslims all over the Middle East and Europe—on a daily basis. But biased, pro-Islam left-wing progressives in D.C. and the media defend these brutal actions by demanding tolerance to Islam.

Never offend Islam’s civil liberties and its human rights.

IRAN HANGING

Islamic Hanging of Gay Muslim Men in Middle East

Maimed Muslim Woman

Tortured Muslim Woman Who tried to Leave Islam

Texas Honor Murder Victims

Texas Teen Sisters Honor Murdered by Father and Brother for Dating Outside Islamic Religion

What human rights!

Islam violates the civil and human rights of all who refuse to convert to Islam. Islam commands the execution of Muslims who flee Islam’s violent, political movement of rape, terror, torture–and if one is lucky enough after one has been brutally tortured in the most heinous fashion– death.

Non-Muslims are brainwashed by “Group Think” media progressives and elitists demanding all ignore historical facts and pull a Hillary Clinton by asking “what difference does it make,” as long as we don’t insult Islam?

Here’s an example: The Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties has a training manual for the Department of Homeland Security and National Counter terrorism Center (as well as other government agencies and workplaces the Obama Administration and Janet Napolitano demand be followed) used to monitor outspoken conservatives and government employees.

Countering Violent Extremism Training (CVET) states:  

Don’t use programs that venture to deep into the weeds of religious doctrine and history…Don’t use training with political agenda. This is not the time to persuade audiences …on the views about Israel/Palestinian conflict, reformation within Islam, or the proper role of Islam in majority Muslim nations…Don’t use trainers who answer primarily interest groups. For example, trainers who are self-professed ‘Muslim reformers’ may further an interest group instead of delivering generally accepted unbiased information.

 

In other words, don’t inform DHS employees of Islam’s violent history. Ignore Mohammad’s bloodthirsty, forced conversion by-way-of-the sword. Don’t expose his slaughtering, raping, pillaging and plundering of European churches. And certainly don’t uncover how Mohammad conquered the Middle East and Holy Land: By massacring Christians and Jews. It’s best we ignore truths and turn historical facts against Christian Crusaders, and Christians and Jews in general. Make Christians and Jews the bad guys and Islam the victim.

The progressive “Group Think”  handbook further demands DHS never discuss “war stories” or the “psychological indicators of terrorism.”

I would think “psychological indicators” would be of utmost importance, considering the “Allah Akbar” screaming Islamic Major Nidal Hasan, also a psychologist, taught Islamic soldiers at Fort Hood how to think and act against non-Muslims—wage war, jihad. Hasan’s Islamic conditioning prior to massacring 13 soldiers and wounding 26 at Fort Hood were deep “indicators” he was going to attack Fort Hood…with “workplace violence.”

But hey, what difference does it make?

Apparently none to DHS:

Don’t use training that equates radical thought, religious expression, freedom to protest, or other constitutionally-protected activity, including disliking the U.S. government without being violent…

 

This is how the U.S. government proceeds to counter terrorism:  Ignore Koran demands for violence, avoid Sharia Law, because “Trainers who equate the desire for Sharia law with criminal activity violate basic tenets of the First Amendment.”

Heaven forbid we correlate Islam’s desire to exterminate the non-Muslim portion of the human race with Islam’s Koranic demands to exterminate the non-Muslim segment of the human race.

Whatever you do, don’t expose  what author Daniel Greenfield has the courage to warn:

Every believer in Islam is potentially a sleeper, ready to undergo what the experts call “radicalization”. But radicalization is largely a misnomer. The proper term is religiosity… Every believer in Islam is a potential terrorist. Islam is the ultimate sleeper cell. Terrorism is coded into the ideological DNA of a religion built on war.

Instead, CVET handbook insists the U.S. government forbid counter terrorism agents inside knowledge of Islam’s thinking and plans.

That should keep the homeland safe from another Islamic attack.

Look how safe denying Islam entrance into the UK and tolerating Islam kept Great Britain and a slaughtered soldier.

UK Islam Violence     UK Soldier

A 20 minute hacking and beheading of a British soldier by Islamic immigrants to Great Britain and their repugnant reasons to the press informs us of the difference Islam is making in the West:

We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone. Your people will never be safe. The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying by British soldiers every day. We must fight them as they fight us. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. I apologise that women had to witness this today but in our lands our women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your government, they don’t care about you. Do you think David Cameron is going to get caught in the street when we start busting our guns? Do you think your politicians are going to die? No, it’s going to be the average guy like you, and your children. So get rid of them. Tell them to bring our troops back so we, so you can all live in peace.

 

That horror, as well as the never-look-at-Islam reaction via media “Group Think,” and Obama’s refusal to call the barbaric slaughter Islam, is theoretically nothing more than “Hey, it’s vindication-by-justification of Islam.” This is the difference being made: Brainwashing non-Muslims into compliance.

Here’s some subtle, well-mannered toleration in the face of jihad: The Conservative MP Col. Patrick Mercer told Great Britain “All the signs indicated this is a terrorist attack. If that is the case it’s a very carefully thought-through thing. It’s obviously carefully planned.”

“If that is the case!” What kind of “carefully thought-through” sign does the MP need to declare Islam’s violence butchery?

The terrorist admitted the attack is Islamic!

Prime Minister Cameron delicately stated: “Of course we need to be careful about similar attacks happening in the future…Police are urgently seeking the full facts about this case but there are strong indications it is a terrorist incident.”

Good grief! Can we possibly find another way to apologize without giving the UK the full Neville Chamberlain!

No doubt Obama will discover a way to deem this Islamic carnage as a multicultural street altercation.

The only way to be “careful” is deny immigration status to Islam !

The UK slaughter is terrorism, Boston was an act of Islamic jihad, let’s identify this brutality as Islam and stop it with the “Downton Abbey” tea-time manners!

How about admitting Islam demands submission and war. The beheading and Boston Bombings were done by Islam, Muslims, not the Vienna Choir Boys.

Islam is terror, not peace…unless one is dead.

If leaders and the media admitted the truth, Islam would no longer be welcomed into the West. But then what would we all do without a good conquering invasion by everything that stands against liberty, freedom, and life?

Thank heavens we have civil liberties handbooks to steer us away from wisdom and sense.

But who needs common sense when you don’t have a head?

After all, what difference does it make as long as infidels cater to violence, bow down to extremism that is Islam and allow Islam to invade and conquer our culture, Constitution, and violate our Bill of Rights?

Islam Takes America's Bill of Rights

Never mind Islam uses the Constitution’s Bill of Rights and First Amendment against America as a weapon to incur violence against humanity, Americans are to shut up and take the jihad against us with an apology before we get the peace job to the neck.

It’s getting to the point where the difference will be made on the homeland: We won’t have to go overseas to fight Islam if we don’t reject and deny it further entrance into America. Americans will simply go to battle against Islam on American shores…But arent we already doing that while progressives demand: “What difference does it make, as long as we don’t insult Islam!”

 

F.B.I. Describes imaged men as ‘suspects’ DHS’ Napalitano not sure

second boston marathon fbi suspect

Richard DesLauriers, special agent in charge of the Boston FBI office referred to the two men pictured in FBI released video as “suspect number one” and “suspect number two”. Department of homeland security’s Janet Napalitano isn’t so sure.

DesLauriers described the two men as Suspect No. 1 and Suspect No. 2. Suspect No. 1 was wearing a dark hat. Suspect No. 2 was wearing a white hat and that suspect number two was vidoe’d dropping his backpack at bomb location #2.

When questioned by Congress on the same day, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napalitano said there were “individuals” the FBI would like to speak to and that she “wouldn’t characterize them as ‘suspects’ under the technical term. But we need the public’s help in locating these individuals.”

The way things appear, the FBI is making a full-court press while being held back by DHS. Homeland security seems more interested in political appearances than catching the men the FBI suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings.

The explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon killed three innocent people and injured at least 170 more.

Obama Won’t Confiscate Guns?? Are you Blind???

Barbed Wire

 Since Barack Obama has said he is going to send federal agents into Oklahoma and other states to enforce Obamacare, Obama's Gestapowhat is there to make me believe he won’t send federal agents in to enforce his gun registration/confiscation scheme?  If he “dictates” an executive order that I have to turn in or register any weapons and I refuse, who is going to enforce that dictate?  If Congress decrees that I cannot own particular types of weapons or magazines and I refuse to comply, who is going to enforce it?

In his E/O decree on Obamacare he essentially said the states have no right to oppose the federal government, that the federal government has the final say, PERIOD!!!, he is the ultimate authority of the land  http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/14892-obama-admin-ignores-nullification-federal-agents-will-enforce-obamacare .  Our Declaration of Independence and Constitution say different!!!  Obama and his “Gangs of ??????” in Congress, both political parties,  see themselves as rulers rather than servants of We the People.

Back to: “Who is going to confiscate my weapons and any accessories they say I cannot have”?  Is Obama going to send his DHS Gestapo thugs to attack me and those of like mind?  Will he use the purse of the federal government to pay state police to invade my home, shoot me, and steal my private property?  Will the state team up with the local sheriff and/or police department to kick in my door in the middle of the night and shoot me in my bed like happened to a man a few days ago in Auburn, Washington? http://www.prisonplanet.com/justified-uniformed-invaders-shoot-a-man-16-times-in-his-bed.html

Do I have to worry about the government kicking in my door because I exercise my rights as written in the Constitution?  Will I wake up in the middle of the night and find masked men in military garb at my door with automUrban Rescue Vehicle 2atic weapons, face masks, body armor head to toe, and an armored personnel carrier; all there with the intent to arrest me for violating a law that is clearly unConstitutional?

Some say I am paranoid, a fear monger, and a “radical right wing extremist”, for asking these questions.  I’m none of those things.  I am a patriot who believes in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the right to live by both as our founders intended.  I am a citizen who sees rampant abuse of the Constitution by those we elect to uphold and defend said Constitution.

We see incidents like these I list becoming the rule rather than the exception.  Police dressed head to toe in military garb, face hoods, and body armPolice to Gestapoor are taking a “shoot first and ask questions later” attitude in everyday contacts with people.  In California SWAT teams, also dressed in military uniforms and equipment, are rounding up firearms from those who have been “deemed” to now possess firearms illegally.  No court hearings, no due process, just a kicked in door and shots fired if resisted.

And what about the http://tightwind.net/2012/04/autopsy-suggests-man-shot-by-ny-police-did-not-threaten-them/  68 year old man shot over his medical alert bracelet being accidentally activated?  Need I go on?  There are literally pages of incidents where police and/or SWAT teams have needlessly shot citizens, many fatally.

During the Chris Dorner incident police riddled two different vehicles with bullets without bothering to find out who was in the vehicle before opening fire.  One vehicle contained a white man who was uninjured (Dorner was black).  The other vehicle contained two Hispanic women, one elderly, and both of whom were wounded.  In both cases they were in pickup trucks that were nowhere near the description given of the truck DornerChris Dorner was reported to be driving.  It seemed that merely being in a truck at that time in California was enough to get one shot by police.  Why should I believe those with the same attitude won’t just shoot me out of convenience?

Those who call me paranoid or a fear monger must see the same things I see, or do they?  What do the naysayers think about the Marine who was shot to death in a 2011 Gestapo style “drug” raid that found nothing illegal?   They shot this veteran 60 times in his own home without so much as identifying themselves, and then let him lay there for over an hour while they ransacked the house to no avail.  If you naysayers will look at the link to this story you will find it is from the Huffington Post, hardly a “vast right wing conspiracy” publication. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/25/jose-guerena-arizona-_n_867020.html

How can people see what is going on every day and say it can’t/won’t happen here?  Why not?  How does one see DHS arming itself to the teeth without wondering why they need such armaments?  Who are they going to use this military Dept Homeland Security Logohardware on?  At the same time, politicians at all levels and in both political parties are breaking their necks to disarm citizens.  If we are all defenseless why do they need armored vehicles and automatic weapons with billions of rounds of ammunition?  It is as if those in political office don’t believe in the vision of the founding fathers.

Those who say it won’t or can’t happen here are living in a dream world, one that will turn into a nightmare before their very eyes.  There were many who said it couldn’t happen in Germany, but it did.  Hundreds of thousands of Jews left Germany when they saw the steps Hitler was taking.  Some went to other European countries and were eventually roundedhitler4 Il Duce Obamaup when German forces conquered Europe.  Some came to the United States and contributed to the defeat of the Axis Powers.  Some came here to live normal working class lives and survived the Holocaust that killed 6 million of their people.

We hear stories from people who have experienced tyranny in Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia yet many Americans thumb their nose at those who know from first-hand experience what life is like in totalitarian societies.  Those who deny what is obvious will suffer when the shoe of tyranny drops, and they will deserve what they get.  They won’t be the only ones to suffer, however.  An entire nation will lose the liberty won and preserved with the blood of millions of patriots.  It certainly won’t give me any pleasure to say “I told you so”, assuming I survive the initial attack.

Most of us don’t have a choice but to stay and fight for our future.  Some can move to countries that don’t have despots and wanna-be dictators running them but they won’t be safe there for long once America falls.  When we are gone as the “shining city on a hill” it won’t be long before the rest of the world is subjected to the same tyranny we saw in 1930’s Barbed WireGermany.

According to the Constitution I am part of the defensive militia of America.  If the government was following the Constitution they would be arming me and my neighbors instead of a DHS force that has no Constitutional authority to operate inside the United States.  What is the point of disarming the citizens and arming a federal police force to the teeth with military style equipment?  What possible justification do they have for this?  Who do they plan to fight with all of this hardware? We are far gone from the vision of our founders.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

“Representation” Democratic Party Style

Bible, flag, guns, Our rights

John Morse, Colorado State Senate President

Democrat leader of the Colorado State Senate, John Morse, recently stated, publicly, that he just ignores his constituents, and tells his fellow State Senators to do the same, because he doesn’t like their stand on gun control.  Now isn’t this just the height of arrogance and tyranny?  He is a “servant of the People” who swore to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”?  That dismissive and disgusted tone in his voice when referring to “some people” should be an alarm to anyone, including voters registered as Democrats.

Americans, this is what we are facing with increasing frequency from elected officials at all levels and in both political parties.  This is truly a “bi-partisan” power grab we are facing. The increasing degree of arrDemomcrat Logoogance on the part of elected officials shows how far they have gone in their plan to take total control over our lives.  It is one thing to have “discussions behind closed doors” and another thing altogether when they just come out and brazenly boast about their actions against We the People.

This man and his entire party are trampling on the Constitution and making no attempts to hide it any longer.  They are taking an “in your face” stand, daring We the People to do something about it.  The bully has thrown down the gauntlet for everyone to see.  He is openly challenging citizens to put a stop to tyranny, his tyranny.  The entire Democrat Party, and the Republican Party as well, are telling We the People that they can do as they wish and the Constitution means nothing.  Republicans posture and beat their chests for a while and then compromise on “common sense gun control measures”, meaning they sign off on taking away our right to own firearms as stated in the 2nd Amendment.  The straw argument that “no one should have the right to own a nuclear missile” just doesn’t fly with citizens.

republican logoThere are some in Congress, and in state legislatures around the nation, that are standing up for us and for the Constitution.  They are being pilloried by the political class of both parties and the lame stream media for doing so.  Anyone who has the temerity to challenge their “all-knowing wisdom” is declared an “enemy of the state” and subject to a drone strike at any moment because, according to Attorney General Eric Holder, “if the President does it, it is legal”!!!!   This is the stuff of dictatorships not a Constitutional Republic.

I wrote a couple of articles last month that address the problem of politicians and their handlers who deny the rights of We the People.  In the first one I appealed to people with name recognition and/or immense wealth to “put their money where their mouth is”, and challenged conservative voters to stand behind them in this battle for liberty.  In the second one I appealed to citizens who are registered Democrats to think about what their party is doing to their nation, and to their individual liberty.

This attitude oBarbed Wiref “we know better and will ignore you peasants” has passed the point of concern and has come to the point of outright danger.  If they no longer feel any necessity to hide their contempt for American citizens and for our way of life, We the People are facing imminent subjugation. Our rights to self –defense are being gutted by a government that holds the opinions of its citizens in disdain and total disregard.  They see themselves as the only ones capable of making decisions that are “in our best interests”.

Our government is engaging in actions that many see as a preparation step for the taking up of arms against its own citizens.  The Department of Homeland Security has secured contracts for the purchase of billions of rounds of hollow point bullets, designed for maximum damage to the human body (these aren’t for “target practice”); tens of thousands of fully automatic rifles, the true “assault rifles”, not the semi-automatic kind you and I possess; are re-fitting thousands of armored “Urban Rescue Vehicles”, the kind with gun ports, for use in American cities; and helicopters fly through our skies shooting machineguns in simulated “domestic unrest” scenarios.Dept Homeland Security Logo

Martial Law may be right around the corner.  The government could isolate citizens and confiscate their firearms, or kill the citizen who refuses to surrender their protection, over little or nothing, mostly “imagined offenses” as is happening in California right now.  They like to throw the mental health issue out into the arena because they know Republicans will hide behind the need to “keep the guns out of the hands of the mentally deranged”.  Of course, that category now applies to any veteran, whether they have seen combat or not.  And who will define “mental illness”, Sen. Diane Feinstein?  Even now people who believe the Constitution is the law of the land and the basis for our nation are called “extremists” by those in power in both political parties.  How much of a step is it to declare these same “extremists” as mentally ill for the purpose of denying them their 2nd Amendment rights?

The Democratic Party, and their allies in the Republican Party, have this all designed to destroy the ConstitutionConstitution and to subjugate We the People.  Establishment operatives in both political parties have joined forces to impose their will on the citizens of America.  They don’t care what we think, what we want, or what is lawful.  They desire the power to dictate our lives to us and this Colorado State Senate president has come right out in the open and stated as much.  The message to We the People is “agree with us voluntarily or we will impose agreement on you”.  Nanny Bloomberg is doing the same thing in New York City, telling people of the nation that he will impose our best interests on us if we refuse to acquiesce voluntarily.  This has to stop, and We the People must stop it, if liberty is to be re-established.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Police “Requested” Shooting Targets of Pregnant Women

“There are two sides  to the situation.”

Most of these “No Hesitation Targets” went to the Department of Homeland Security!

This should chill you to the bone!

DHS Informant: We are Preparing for Massive Civil War

dhs_informant

This video was posted on April 24, 2012, but recent news reports seem to verify what is being said- The United States Government is preparing for Civil War against the American people.

DHS Buys 21.6 Million More Rounds of Ammunition

Are all those guns and ammo for Obama’s Civilian National Security Force?

Obama Administration Repositioning Homeland Security Ammunition Containers

YouTube Description:

The government has declared it can lock anyone up forever or kill them without any proof or due process. DHS has placed an order for 450 million rounds of Hollow Point ammo. Obama can now declare martial law during peace time. I think that just about says it all.

“We are Preparing for Massive Civil War,” Says DHS Informant
http://current.com/community/93765251…

“If you don’t fight for your rights, they don’t exist. Our constitution doesn’t mean a damn thing if we the people don’t stand up for it.” Or just go back to sleep. Maybe we’ll get adjoining cells one day if we’re still alive anyway.

Homeland Security: In an Emergency; Grab Your Scissors

100_0913

Continuing the idea that only the government can protect you the Department of Homeland Security has released this video of options if you are in a dangerous situation. Key in the DHS plan is to take cover and hide.  But…

“If you are caught out in the open and cannot conceal yourself or take cover, you might consider trying to overpower the shooter with whatever means are available,” says the narrator, as the video shows an office worker grabbing a pair of scissors out of her drawer.

One has to wonder if teaching actual self defense tactics might be a better plan. Or maybe an offer to put a baseball bat at every cubicle.

Key Words to Attract Big Brother

Big_Brother_Is_Watching_You

When I was sick with the Swine Flu (a resistant air borne mutation), while near the Yuma border, I heard the crash of an airplane. I thought the suspicious toxic chemical cloud was the work of  Mexican cartel gangs. But instead of an attack and evacuation it was national preparedness, disaster planning by Homeland Security and SWAT. The contamination and lockdown were an exercise on Southwest domestic security.

Also, I do not have tuberculosis.

What does the above prattling mean? Nothing, of course. Unless you work for the Department of Homeland Security and are looking for key words that might reflect suspicious activity.

Your government, and mine, is always watching and with the advent of social media as a means of communications they can monitor via computer programs every word we write and send through the internet.

Through a Freedom of Information Act request the Daily Mail received a list of  keywords and phrases used by Homeland Security to monitor social networking sites and online media for signs of terrorist or other threats against the U.S.

homeland watch list

DES insists the practice is aimed not at policing the internet for disparaging remarks about the government and signs of general dissent, but to provide awareness of any potential threats.  In addition to terrorism, they are also watchful for signs of natural disasters.

Stopping Subway Flooding

New_York_City_Subway

The Department of Homeland Security technology department has come up with a crazy new device that may stop subway floods from happening in the near future.

For years mass transit experts have worked to find an ability to block off sections of the tunnel system to stem flooding. While retrofitting existing tunnels with watertight doors seemed the obvious answer the price has been prohibitive.

Now they think they’ve found the answer. And it’s as simple as an inflatable plug. A giant blow up capsule that when inflated will fit snugly into the subway space sealing it off until the danger of flooding has passed.

In January 2012 the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) successfully tested an unprecedented technology for containing flooding or dangerous gases in mass transit tunnels: a giant plug. S&T’s Resilient Tunnel Project (RTP) has developed an enormous inflatable cylinder, tunnel-shaped with rounded capsule-like ends, that can be filled with water or air in minutes to seal off a section of tunnel before flooding gets out of control.

The plug is made of space suite material and is strong and resistant to tears. Its quick inflation gives the ability to tunnel systems to repair and return to normal with minimal damage.

Watch the video below to see how this new technology will work. It is expected to be available in two years.

America’s Trojan Horse

trojan horse

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) is asking hard questions of DHS secretary Janet Napolitano. He might as well have asked Eric Holder for “Fast and Furious” documents. In our constitutional republic, the main purpose of government is to protect the God-given rights of the citizens it represents. The goal of Rep. Gohmert was to get to the heart of an issue that should concern all Americans across all party lines: Did Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano know she gave a visa and a classified security clearance to a known terrorist facilitator and sympathizer, Hani Nour Eldin.

Eldin is a member of Egypt’s parliament and a member of Egypt’s Gamaa Islamiya group which is listed as a known terrorist organization. Eldin attended multiple meetings last month at the behest of the president and DHS – some of which were conducted at the White House. Issue number two: did Napolitano know that the DHS advisory council member (appointed by Obama), Mohamed Elibiary, used his security clearance (that Napolitano gave him) to access and download classified documents with his personal computer and shop the information to media outlets?

Napolitano couldn’t really answer any of Gohmert’s questions other than telling him that it was “objectionable” to attack or accuse someone because they are Muslim, (classic liberal response, Gohmert asks hard questions and he is deemed “bigoted” or “racist”). Rep. Gohmert also asked Napolitano if she was aware of the fact that Elibiary was affiliated with a charity here in the states named the Freedom and Justice Foundation. This is important because the name of the now defunct foundation here in America also shared its name with the Freedom and Justice Party in Egypt. The Freedom and Justice Party in Egypt is the legislative arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The administration has been very open to advice from the “Council on American Islāmic Relations” aka (CAIR) which have been named an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation court case that took place in northern Texas. You will remember, that this is the court case that named all the people responsible for using the giving nature of Americans to secretly fund terrorist activities all around the globe.

If the stonewall tactic looks familiar to you, it should, it worked for Eric Holder at the Fast and Furious hearings. If congress keeps pushing this issue as it should, I foresee Obama pulling rank and invoking executive privilege once again. As a nation we are in a very precarious era. When agencies have absolutely no congressional oversight, we become a dictatorship or a monarchy by definition. The current administration that promised to be the most transparent, is anything but. It seems Obama “leads” better by fiat rather than inside of a constitutional construct.

As a nation, we need to show courage and begin a debate about what role Islam is going to play in our government. Will we cower when liberals attack and call us “bigoted” for asking relevent and important questions? We can not. We must stand courageous in the face of name calling. When we have come to a place in our society where the secretary of DHS is not concerned about men using their personal computers to access classified government information, and known terrorist sympathizers holding meetings in the White House, we are in grave danger. If Janet Napolitano is not going to perform her job as secretary of DHS, why do we have a DHS? We should not cower from the debate simply because it’s politically incorrect to broach these subjects or because of a political agenda. We have already done that, in 1999 when Osama Bin Laden stated that blood would run in the streets of New York city, no one stood against his statement. We also done the same with the Ft. Hood shooter Nidal Hasan, over and over people in the know were reporting to the FBI that he was very anti-American and a possible threat, the FBI did not investigate because they were fearful the investigation would be seen as an “Islāmic witch hunt”. All because of political correctness, thirteen people were shot in cold blood. The man had S.O.A. on his government (Army) business card, S.O.A. meaning Soldier Of Allah. To add insult to injury the government will still not call the acts perpetrated by Hasan a terrorist act, they consider it an incident of “work place violence”. Also, I don’t remember anyone mentioning gun control after Hasan killed thirteen.

We recently seen how political agenda has driven the gun control debate after the tragic shooting spree in Aurora, Colorado. Before the victims were all properly identified news anchors were already blaming those they disagree with politically, pushing accusations on Tea Party members. Guns needed to be outlawed so people would be “safe”. Just a day later, an Afghan police officer opened fire on American contractors killing three. No where did you hear anyone calling for the outlaw of guns in Afghanistan. One shooting spree fits the liberal agenda narrative, and one did not. So one gets the nod for a refreshed attack on the second amendment rights of American people, and one is ignored, because only one story is politically expedient. I bring this up because I want the American people to drive the debate regarding Islam in the government, and not another terrorist attack, God forbid.

Bachmann letter raises furor over inclusion of Muslims with extremist ties as advisors to the Department of Homeland Security

Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann

Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is in the news again and under fire for her unflinching criticism of the government for its adoption of Muslims associated with terrorist affiliated Muslim Brotherhood as advisors for Homeland Security.

A scathing letter addressed to the Inspector General of the DHS specifically names three individuals used as advisors to the DHS, granting them high level security clearances as a result, who have direct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Bachmann calls for the investigation of the matter as well as corrective action.

The Bachmann letter states:

 “. . . the Department of Homeland Security has utilized in a key advisory role  three individuals with extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, other Islamist organizations and causes: Dalia Mogahed, Mohamed Elibiary, and Mohamed Magid.”

Bachmann doesn’t flinch, but names names and specifics in the letter, co-signed by four of her colleagues in the House Of Representatives: Trent Franks-R Arizona, Louie Gohmert-R Texas, Thomas Rooney-R Florida, Lynn Westmoreland-R Georgia.

Bachmann goes on to say: “The problematic nature of this arrangement is evident. . .” and a cause of great concern. It is of great concern, unless you are the President or his White House staff, who don’t seem to have a problem with any of this.

Bachmann notes in the letter that these members, and others, may be having undue influence on the way law enforcement and the military are trained to identify and deal with extremist Muslim terrorists organizations, noting the softening of the language in regards to such groups and the outreach to these groups that could tip off the enemies of our country before action against them can be taken.

Michele Bachmann and her colleagues in the House might as well be talking to a wall when it comes to addressing this issue to the White House, who seems not to have qualms about inviting these dangerous individuals into Washington for a sit down. But it should also serve as warning bells to those who are listening and keeping score. It should be noted that the politically correct policies regarding those sympathetic to Jihad led directly to the tragic shooting at Fort Hood, allegedly committed by trained psychiatrist and Army Major Nidal Hassan. It should also be noted that the shooter was interested in homeland security issues and attended events for the George Washington University’s Homeland Security Policy Institute during the Obama administrations initial transition into the White House.

Jerome R. Corsi makes the claim in his column for World Net Daily that alleged Fort Hood Shooter, Hassan, is listed on the event’s final report as a uniformed services participant. In his column entitled, “Shooter Advised Obama Transition: Fort Hood triggerman aided team on Homeland Security Task Force” Corsi includes a link to the very document where Major Hassan is listed as a participant as well as video of Hassan at an event. The University acknowledges to Corsi that Hassan did attend, but says it is unclear if he had any direct influence in the committee’s final report. A link to the document in question is no longer available and the document has been scrubbed from the George Washington University’s website, but I have included them here, and here.

The University says it is unclear if Hassan had an influence on a national security report. But, that’s not the point is it? The point really should be that dangerous Muslim radicals are attempting to access high levels of our government in order to influence them in favor of their Jihad against the west; and government officials seem to be unable or unwilling to vet these people properly.

The Army clearly knew about this military psychiatrist’s radical beliefs as I am sure the DHS must know of the affiliation of these radical three. But because of political correctness, or incompetence, they refuse to act to prevent these people from having influence at the highest levels. And Americans have and will suffer as a result.

Bachmann appeared early this morning on the Glenn Beck radio show to outline her reasons for the letter. Her comments can be seen on TheBlaze.com. Beck and Bachmann have been allies on the issue of Muslim extremism, leading Beck to produce a three-part video series on his flaghip Internet TV show GBTV, entitled “Rumors of War”.

Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison

The White House isn’t the only ones who would like to ignore this issue. Minnesotan Congressman Keith Ellison piled on recently with CNN’s Anderson Cooper where he called his colleges’ concerns over Muslim extremism infiltrating the government as “nonesense”.

Ellison, the first African-American representative from Minnesota, and the first Muslim to be elected to Congress, admits in the interview that when he asked for proof of the allegations, House Representatives sent him a 16-page document. Ellison poo-pooed the document, telling Cooper, “Sixteen pages doesn’t take nothing and turn it into something, it’s still nothing, and the fact is, I would hope that we would let our saner, more courageous spirit prevail.”

We believe Muslims should have a stake in the government of the United States, provided they are properly vetted for radical Islamic or anti-American views!

Why Repealing Obamacare Is Not Enough

Repeal Now

A recent step in the right direction happened on July the 11th. The house of representatives voted for a full repeal of Obamacare, 244 yeas to 185 nays. Of course the liberal media cried foul, they thought even taking a vote on repealing Obamacare was a giant waste of taxpayer money. Bob Schieffer, of CBS’ Face the Nation, lamented how the house was wasting so much money on a repeal vote. This concern he showed is interesting, because the house has been sending legislation to the senate since the Tea Party takeover of the house in 2010. So far, there has not even been so much as a preliminary vote in committee on any of those bills, however I haven’t seen or heard any news coverage of the senate doing nothing, or wasting taxpayer money. There’s not been any lamenting or hand wringing of any sort over a do nothing senate.

While voting to repeal Obamacare is a commendable and noble thing to do, this is merely not enough. Read more

Another Presidential Power Grab

obamahalo

July 6th 2012, President Obama signed yet another Executive Order, ASSIGNMENT OF NATIONAL SECURITY AND EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS COMMUNICATIONS FUNCTIONS.  This new Executive order grants the administration and the Department of Homeland Security massive new abilities that might be needed to re-establish communications during the event of a natural disaster or national security event.  This order will allow the DHS to ensure  that “communications must be possible under all circumstances” and “and improve national resilience.”  This new Executive order states that;

“Sec. 4.1. The Secretary of Homeland Security shall establish an Executive Committee Joint Program Office (JPO) to provide full-time, expert, and administrative support for the Executive Committee’s performance of its responsibilities under section 3.3 of this order”

This new Executive order establishes the National Security and Emergency Preparedness or NS/EP a Executive Committee established to control communications during a crisis and ensure that the government has the proper ability to communicate whenever it needs. The “policy” of this Executive Order passed on Friday, July 6th 2012 says that it must have the capability “to enable the executive branch to communicate within itself and with: the legislative and judicial branches; State, local, territorial, and tribal governments; private sector entities; and the public, allies, and other nations.” Further down within the Executive Order it specifies the main responsibility of the NS/EP which is; “to serve as a forum to address NS/EP communications matters.”

Established under the executive order signed by President Obama on July 6th 2012 the NS/EP will “address”  “communication matters” and contain “representatives designated by the heads of the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, Commerce, and Homeland Security, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), the General Services Administration, and the Federal Communications Commission, as well as such additional agencies as the Executive Committee may designate. The designees of the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Secretary of Defense shall serve as Co-Chairs of the Executive Committe.”

The NS/EP’s main responsibility for the Committee’s forum that is setup under section 3.1 ; “shall be to: (a) advise and make policy recommendations to the President, through the PPD-1 process, on enhancing the survivability, resilience, and future architecture of NS/EP communications, including what should constitute NS/EP communications requirements;”

The NS/EP will also “evaluate the capabilities of existing and planned communications systems, networks, or facilities to meet all executive branch NS/EP communications requirements, including any recommended remedial actions;”  In addition to the committee being able to “evaluate the capabilities of existing and planned communications” the DHS will also have the ability to ensure those “communications” “through the use of commercial, government, and privately owned communications resources, when appropriate.”

Section Four of the Executive Order establishes the “Executive Committee Joint Program Office, which is the “Office” that will oversee the NS/EP”s performance, that is put together by the Department of Homeland Security(DHS). Even though the JPO will “provide full-time, expert, and administrative support for the Executive Committee’s performance of its responsibilities under section 3.3 of this order.”  Under this same section it also states that the JPO “shall be responsive to the guidance of the Executive Committee.”  The JPO which was established to “provide” “support” to the “Executive Committee” will be taking “guidance” from the group it oversees.

Some of the responsibilities that were established under section four, the JPO which is suppose to “provide” “support are;”

a) oversee the development, testing, implementation, and sustainment of NS/EP communications that are directly responsive to the national security needs of the President, Vice President, and senior national leadership

(c) provide to the Executive Committee the technical support necessary to develop and maintain plans adequate to provide for the security and protection of NS/EP communications; and

(d) provide, operate, and maintain communication services and facilities adequate to execute responsibilities consistent with Executive Order 12333 of December 4, 1981, as amended.

The Federal Government already has the National Security Council, which was established in Executive Order 12333, listed above, which allows the Federal government to use the NSC to “act as the highest ranking executive branch entity that provides support to the President for review of, guidance for, and direction to the conduct of all foreign intelligence, counterintelligence, and covert action, and attendant policies and programs.”

This Executive Order signed last Friday and the Agencies or committee’s created within it, are not funded by Congress, which is suppose to be the purse strings for the Federal government. The order states that; “a long-term strategic vision for NS/EP communications and propose funding requirements and plans to the President and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), through the PPD-1 process, for NS/EP communications initiatives that benefit multiple agencies or other Federal entities;”  this funding for all of these agencies will “(c) coordinate the planning for, and provision of, NS/EP communications for the Federal Government under all hazards;”

The Agencies and Committees and additional power now granted to the DHS under this new Executive Order is protected by one of the last sections which lays out its protections of the agencies and committees and their funding stating that; “(d) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:” and, “(e) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.”  With the power invested in the Federal Government to fund and control these agencies independently from Congress, and the power to grant executive privilege, where does it end?
