The unspoken link between military base carnages

December 8, 2019

What type of vetting takes place in today’s politically correct environment?

Just over ten years ago — November 5, 2009 — a previously unthinkable act of violence occurred at Fort Hood, in Texas. Nidal Hasan M.D., a U.S. Army major, psychiatrist and Islamic extremist, fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others, after ranting openly to colleagues why infidels should be beheaded. During the trial in which he was sentenced to death, Hasan acknowledged that he pulled the trigger in a crowded waiting room where troops were getting final medical checkups before deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Fast forward to the morning of Friday December 6, 2019. A shooter identified as Second Lt. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, opened fire in a classroom at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida killing three people and wounding 8 others, including two deputies, one of whom was responsible for killing the murderer.

Among the base victims was Joshua Kaleb Watson, 23, a recent graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and officer on deck at the time of the massacre, who alerted first responders to the location of the shooter even after he had been shot multiple times. He was training to become a Navy pilot … a goal that will never be realized.

There is a connective thread between the two horrific incidents of terrorism on U.S. military bases training foreign nationals in the use of the aircraft we send to their countries. Both of the assassins were authorized to be on the base where they committed their carnage and both were devout Muslims, making frequent trips back to their homeland.

Alshamrani entered the United States in 2017, when he began training with the United States military. He attended school and began taking classes in English and aviation at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.

Prior to Friday’s massacre Alshamrani hosted a dinner party at his residence where the entertainment was watching videos of mass murders.

One of the students who attended the dinner party was videotaped outside the building while the shooting was taking place. Two other Saudi students reportedly watched from a car. According to an unnamed U.S. official, 10 Saudi students were being held on the base Saturday while several others remained unaccounted for. He also said the FBI was examining social media posts and investigating whether the assassin acted alone or was connected to a larger group.

It’s important to acknowledge that there are American Muslims who are patriotic and fighting against the very things these craven haters believe in. Arizonans are fortunate to have among us Zuhdi Jasser, MD an American medical doctor specializing in internal medicine and nuclear cardiology. Dr. Jasser is a former lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy. He served as staff internist in the Office of the Attending Physician of the United States Congress. Jasser is an author and frequent guest on nationally televised programs where he makes the distinction between the religion and politicized Islam. His website is the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. It’s our sole link today.  We hope our readers will visit it.


George Washington’s Thanksgiving proclamation, & the newspaper’s negative emphasis

November 28, 2019


On this Thanksgiving day we reflect on the many blessings we enjoy as citizens of this great nation, and wish the abundant bounties of this uniquely American holiday to each and every one of our readers. 

George Washington’s 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation:

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to “recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”

Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best. Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the 3d day of October, A.D. 1789.

But wait! In case you become too comfortable with faith and tradition on this day of Thanksgiving, the barely surviving Arizona Republic newspaper runs a full page editorial titled, “Faith, family and old traditions are in decline in America,” questioning whether “a holiday that embodies all can survive our modern world?” It carries the names of the entire editorial board, editorial page editor Phil Boas and executive editor, Greg Burton.

Today’s issue also alerts us to Thanksgiving being “celebrated” as a “National Day of Mourning” by United Native Indians of New England who have been holding this “solemn day of Remembrance” since 1970, at Portsmouth, Massachusetts — where the Pilgrims landed, survived hardships and celebrated the first Thanksgiving, sharing their bounty with the native tribes.


Demonic Dems aim to doom Trump presidency

October 30, 2019

On the cusp of Halloween, Democrat congressional ghouls are lighting the fire under the impeachment caldron. The House Rules Committee will debate this contemptible 8-page resolution today to provide a “pathway forward” for the impeachment of President Trump.

When President Trump recently used the word “lynching” to describe this outrageous action against him, he was castigated for appropriating a term that one race now thinks it owns.

The word Holocaust has long been used to describe the Nazi’s systematic slaughter of 6 million Jews during WWII. In recent years has been appropriated to describe the legalized murders of pre-born human babies at the hands of abortionists since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. These figures are based on the numbers used by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, a division of Planned Parenthood of America.

In both instances, Holocaust describes gruesome, unconscionable deaths; the taking of innocent lives by those who considered them inconsequential.

President Trump is indeed being lynched by a ferocious mob, though they are wearing business suits instead of white hoods. They are assembled in congress rather than driving down back country roads after nightfall carrying torches to terrorize, torture and kill blacks. 

Yes. Words have meaning. President Trump has been maligned, demonized and colluded against since the day of his Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration. The left-wing Hillary-supporting media, congressional Democrats and Hollywood elites have dedicated themselves to defaming and conducting a witch hunt against him.

Earlier today, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) summed up the Democrat‘s actions stating:

“They have denied President Trump basic due process and are cutting his counsel out of the process in an unprecedented way. The House Democrats new resolution does not change any of that. The draft resolution that has been released does nothing of the sort. It falls way short, way short.” He added, “It does not confer on President Trump the most basic rights of due process or seemingly alter Chairman Schiff’s unfair process in the House Intelligence Committee in any way whatsoever.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), nearly 80, who has lost control to the radical “squad,” young enough to be her granddaughters, has back-pedaled on her lack of enthusiasm to impeach. Now she is moving forward with ferocious vigor.

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), an extreme leftist partisan who has conducted closed door meetings with the single goal of removing the elected President of the United States, has bared his fangs in anticipation of the kangaroo court proceedings. Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs (R-CD5) exposed Schiff in this commentary.

The Bible instructs us to gird our loins for the upcoming battle.


Americans rally to Pres. Trump with record fundraising

October 3, 2019

The lamestream media, relentlessly pushing the Dem’s impeachment spew, would have us believe President Donald Trump is hanging on by a thin thread and has lost the support of the American people.

Recently reported FEC third quarter fundraising totals belie that myth. His reelection campaign has broken all previous records. President Trump and the Republican National Committee (RNC) raised nearly $125 million.

The president now has $156 million cash on hand with approximately $310 million raised so far this year. He’ll need it all and more to get his message out in this hostile environment. America’s voters will continue to respond. He has been right all along: 


AZ Republic‘s reprehensible cover-up of a cover-up

July 16, 2019

A local priest, now retired, has died. In his sleep. In Ireland. Michael O’Grady, a priest since 1958, was designated a monsignor by Pope John Paul II. According to the newspaper report, O’Grady, 85, moved around a lot, with stints at churches throughout the Valley — at least six, from Mesa and Tempe to Phoenix and Scottsdale.

The article is accompanied by a photo of the broadly smiling priest, described as having a “great humor, demeanor and holiness.” Another description included the words, “humble and generous, especially to the poor.” Yet another recalled him as “so human, so humble and truly one of a kind.” At one parish’s yearly St. Patrick Day Party, O’Grady told jokes, sang songs and danced the reel.

One nun described how much O’Grady “cared about people, especially children.”

As Shakespeare‘s character Hamlet, was known to have said, “Therein lies the rub.”

It took student reporter Claire Rafford eight paragraphs to use the word, “however” in the following paragraph:

O’Grady, however, was accused of covering up for a fellow priest during the diocese’s sex-abuse scandal. He was accused by at least one victim and his family of failing to act when told that the Rev. Patrick Colleary, an associate at Holy Spirit. (a Mesa Church), was suspected of molesting the child in the late 1970s. The diocese reached a settlement with the victim in 2005.

Contemptible Rev. Colleary strenuously fought extradition from Ireland where he ran, claiming among other things that thenSheriff Joe Arpaio made the inmates wear pink underwear which the child molester thought demeaning. Colluding with Colleary, Ireland refused to extradite him.

O’Grady, given glowing praise in death, was equally disgraceful. He gave child molester Colleary cover. Interesting that the two of them ended up together in Ireland — which refuses to extradite criminals even when the death penalty is not being considered.

Since 2003 BishopAccountability.org has maintained an extensive database documenting the church’s sexual abuse crisis. Patrick Colleary, along with his photo and news reports is midway down on the ‘Ireland Database.’ You’ll find more facts there than in the feeble newspaper account.


Christian U students protest faith-based VP Mike Pence

May 19, 2019

Liberal Arts Taylor University students take the word “liberal” more seriously than “Christian”

Taylor University is a nondenominational Christian liberal arts school that appears to take the word “liberal“ more seriously than its commitment to Christianity. There was a student and faculty walkout protesting Vice President Mike Pence just prior to him delivering the commencement address, beginning with these words:

“Throughout most of our American history it’s been pretty easy to call yourself a Christian, but things are different now,” Pence said. “Lately, it’s become acceptable, even fashionable, to malign traditional Christian beliefs. So as you prepare to leave this place and build your life on a Christ-centered, world-engaging foundation poured here at Taylor University, be prepared to stand up.”

Founded in 1846, Taylor University has veered far from its original roots. Its admission page urges applicants to learn more about how God could use you during and beyond your Taylor college experience, but there has been a disconnect, based in the promotion of the homosexual agenda as some students affixed rainbow signs and stickers atop their mortar boards, “We are Taylor too. ” They said the message represented “support for marginalized people hurt by the Trump administration’s policies,” clearly demonstrating their lack of knowledge.

The majority of the 494 graduates did not leave and greeted the comments by VP Pence, a former Indiana governor, with applause and a standing ovation. But the fact that there was a protest at a faith-based school is indicative of the radical leftist popular culture invading even what should be regarded as strongholds for normalcy.

The petition protesting Vice President Mike Pence’s commencement address can be viewed here.

While the university’s website addresses its commitment to Christ, some students suggested a more appropriate speaker would be South Bend Indiana mayor and long-shot Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, married to another man.

Next weekend V. P. Pence will deliver the commencement address to U.S. Army cadets at West Point military academy.


Sports Illustrated goes berserk with burkini model

May 4, 2019

Symbol of oppression glorified

Breitbart News covers Zuhdi Jasser in this report, ‘Insanity’ for Hollywood Leftists to ‘Glorify’ Burkini.

Reading it guarantees you will be more discerning in sifting through increasing levels of leftist lunacy from those who purport to be purveyors of news. Dr. Jasser, a Phoenix physician, is the president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy.

Watch as Dr. Jasser, appearing on the Tucker Carlson show, discusses the bizarre aberration of Kenyan-born, Somalian model and practicing Muslim, Halima Aden wearing a hijab and a “burkini” on the swimsuit edition cover of Sports Illustrated magazine.

…and Twitter went into full tweet mode.

This brief video shows Aden, while garbed in her modest attire, ostentatiously strutting her stuff as a contestant in the 2016 Miss Minnesota USA Pageant.
