Elephant-in-the-room issue no presidential candidate touches

April 15, 2015

New presidential candidates emerge nearly daily to tell Americans of their vision on every issue from foreign policy, the national debt, jobs, education, energy independence, health care, crime, the growing racial divide and instability in the Middle East. But these important topics all take a back seat to the major one that no one addresses.

The reputable Judicial Watch reports that Mexican authorities have confirmed that ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas. The linked article is a must read.

In September 2014 Bloomberg News covered the fact that Islamic State extremists were discussing infiltrating the U.S. through our southern border with Mexico. Francis Taylor, under-secretary for intelligence and analysis at the Department of Homeland Security, told a Senate committee that Sunni militants have been tracked on social-media sites.

In May 2011, Seeing Red AZ posted the fact-filled Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns. The post includes a photo dating back to 1980, showing extremist Hispanic members of the anti-American MEChA meeting with then-PLO leader Yasser Arafat, with a picture of the Ayatollah Khomeini staring down from a place of prominence on the wall.

Then hop over to WND’s 2001 report ‘Arab terrorists’ crossing border. It is more relevant than ever, noting there has been a “tremendous increase in OTM’s (law enforcement’s term for ‘Other Than Mexicans’). Illegals from the former Soviet Union, Asia, and the Middle East are joining the flood of Mexicans, Central and South Americans — all slipping in through our incredibly accessible and porous Southern border. Apprehensions have included illegals from the Sudan, Iraq, and even Iran.” Arabs are learning Spanish in order to blend in with the Hispanics. 

ABC 10 News in San Diego filed this report detailing the long-established foothold the Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah has in the adjacent border town of Tijuana. This report was dated May 4, 2011. At that point, the terrorists had been in the town an estimated 15 to 20 years. Among the group’s deadly attacks were the bombing the U.S. embassy in Beirut and Israeli embassy in Argentina.

It’s difficult to come to terms with the fact that  those who were toddlers during the horrific events that resulted in the deaths of 3,000 people on September 11, 2001 are undereducated young adults today with little knowledge of what befell us as 19 Islamic terrorists hijacked and commandeered commercial airliners into NYC’s World Trade Center Towers. Those murderous assaults were part of a series of four coordinated attacks, hitting the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and taking down a plane over Pennsylvania as they sought to strike fear into the heart of America. Not only is the topic oddly neglected in schools across the U.S., but those who are running for the highest office in the land have given it short shrift.

The imminent threat is worthy of discussion.

 


Are you Muslim or Christian? Religion of Peace update

April 2, 2015

Christians at morning prayer targeted by killers shouting “Allahu Akbar” — “God is great” in Arabic

As heavily armed masked gunmen mercilessly slaughtered at least 15 university students at Garissa University College, seriously injuring 60 others, a single question was on their lips.

The assassins, who identified themselves as (al-Qaeda-linked) al-Shabab, ran from dorm room to dorm room shouting: “Are you Muslim or Christian?” Christians were mowed down.

The Kenyan campus has six dorms and approximately 900 students. Hundreds are reportedly still unaccounted for.

Read more in the UK’s Daily Mail.  Al Jazeera’s English version, which refers to itself as a “trusted and respected” news source, mysteriously omits the crucial question that was asked of the students —- determining who lived and who died.


Training to terrorize in AZ’s friendly skies? & Update

March 27, 2015

Andreas Lubitz, the homicidal co-pilot of the Germanwings Flight 9525 who by all accounts locked the pilot out of the cockpit before deliberately crashing into the French Alps, murdering all 149 aboard, had an Arizona connection. A spokesman for Lufthansa, the parent company of Germanwings, acknowledged “Every Lufthansa pilot does part of their training in Phoenix, simply because the weather there is so good and conditions are good for flying.”

The flight school training program takes between a year and a half to two years to complete, and includes several months in Arizona flying small training aircraft, as well as simulator and classroom work. The Airline Training Center Arizona, an arm of Lufthansa, has trained the German airline’s pilots for 45 years,  according to its website, which proclaims “Students From Europe To Asia All Train Under The Sunny Skys (sic) Over Metropolitan Phoenix. Perfect Conditions For Learning To Fly.”

The Phoenix area is home to a large number of flight schools, which make good use of our usually clear skies.

The pilot who crashed a hijacked airliner into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, did his flight training in Arizona. The hijackers on American Airlines Flight 77 were led by Hani Hanjour who trained at the CRM Airline Training Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he received an FAA commercial pilot’s certificate. He had previously been rejected for pilot’s training in Saudi Arabia.

In all probability, they have more rigorous psychological testing.

Monday, March 30, 2015:

 It is now being revealed by Duesseldorf prosecutors that the mass murdering co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, had received treatment for suicidal tendencies for several years —- before becoming a pilot.

 “In the following period, and until recently, further doctor’s visits took place, resulting in sick notes without any suicidal tendencies or aggression against others being recorded.”

 Lubitz’ former girlfriend said he was planning a spectacular gesture so “everyone will know my name,” a German daily reported on Saturday. “I didn’t know what he meant by that at the time, but now it’s obvious,” she said. “He did it because he realized that, due to his health problems, his big dream of working at Lufthansa, of a having job as a pilot, and as a pilot on long-distance flights, was nearly impossible.”

 “He never talked much about his illness, only that he was in psychiatric treatment,” she told the paper, adding they finally broke up because she was afraid of him.

 German authorities have said they had found torn-up sick notes from his doctor showing he had been suffering from an illness that should have grounded him on the day of the tragedy. A chief French investigator raises other questions, after being quoted as saying it was too early to rule out other explanations for the crash.  “There is obviously a scenario that is well known to the media and which we are focusing on,” investigator General Jean-Pierre Michel told French media.


John Kerry: Neville Chamberlain clone puts world at risk & Update

March 26, 2015

Students of history know there is no peace though appeasement

Within days of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei presiding over and agreeing with crowds shouting “Death to America,”  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is photographed with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif. The two men are working to broker a nuclear deal for the despotic and demonic Iranian regime.

The photo is reminiscent of British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain meeting with Adolph Hitler. Chamberlain claimed his accord with the Nazi leader would bring “peace in our time,” after signing a non-aggression pact with Germany in 1938.

 For a much different take on accommodating enemies of liberty watch this classic video, “A Time for Choosing,” an illuminating speech delivered by Ronald Reagan, October 27, 1964.

 An inspiring excerpt:

‘Admittedly, there’s a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson of history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face—that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight or surrender.”

Shouts of “Death to America!” aid in nuclear negotiations.

The Obama administration is caving to Iranian demands regarding expansion of the scope of its nuclear program as negotiators work to finalize a framework agreement in the coming days, according to sources familiar with the disgraceful deal.

Read the complete report in the Washington Free Beacon. 


Weekend reading, viewing, guaranteed to drive you nuts

March 22, 2015

The Times of Israel reports that Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for “Death to America” on Saturday, a day after President Barack Obama appealed to Iran to seize a “historic opportunity” for a nuclear deal and a better future —- and as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry claimed substantial progress toward an accord.

Read the report, and then ask yourself why the Obama administration would see wisdom in attempting to cut a nuclear enrichment deal with the untrustworthy, unstable and diabolical Islamist regime of Iran?

Kerry’s negotiations would allow Iran to retain a substantial uranium enrichment program if the Iranian nuclear project is “peaceful,” although there is a clear consensus by senior members of America’s intelligence community that Iran’s nuclear activities are solely geared towards eventual weapons production.

Here is Obama taking his message directly to the Iranian people, greeting them in Arabic and informing them of the Obama family’s celebration of the Iranian holiday of Nowruz, marking the first day of Spring at the White House, including creating their own Haft Seen, representing their hopes for the New Year.

Obama even cites an Iranian (Persian) poet born in the 1300’s named Hafez, noted for memorizing the entire Quran as a child. Obama quoted, “It is early spring. Try to be joyful in your heart. For many a flower will bloom while you will be in clay.”

Attempting to negotiate rationally with despotic madmen who shout “Death to America” gives prophetic authenticity to Hafez’ words.


Netanyahu triumphs despite Obama’s contempt, meddling

March 17, 2015

One Voice,” former Obama campaign staffers, descended on Israeli election in taxpayer funded, anti-Netanyahu campaign

The Times of Israel reports TV exit polls Tuesday night showed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Likud set to retain the Israeli leadership at the end of a bitter election campaign. Netanyahu claimed victory early Wednesday morning, though his rival Isaac Herzog did not concede defeat.

Polling stations opened at 7 a.m. on Tuesday and Israeli citizens headed for the ballots to vote for Israel’s 20th Knesset. Polls from the end of last week had left options open for a tight race. The TV exit polls were published at 10 p.m., as polling stations closed, after which official results began to roll in. The official final results won’t be publicized until Thursday.

“Against all odds, we achieved a great victory for Likud. We achieved a great victory for our people,” he tells jubilant supporters.

“I’m proud of the people of Israel, that in the moment of truth they knew how to separate the important from the trivial, and to stand for what’s important, for a real defense, a responsible economy, and a socially conscious economy that we’re committed to…. I can tell you with confidence that we stand before diplomatic and defense challenges, and economic and social challenges. We promised to act on the cost of housing, and we’re going to do it.”

Dems and RINOs abandoning Hillary

March 9, 2015

“Inevitable” Hillary now defined by scandals

Hillary Clinton, bafflingly considered the de facto 2016 Democrat presidential front-runner, is not getting any cover from her former senate colleague Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). Appearing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Feinstein was asked by host Chuck Todd about the mounting and increasingly harmful reports of Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State.  Though Feinstein started off saying the “situation isn’t clear,” she soon advised Clinton to “Step up and come out and state exactly what the situation is.”

FEINSTEIN: “Well actually, what I would like is for her to come forward and say just what the situation is.  Because she is the preeminent political figure right now.  She is the leading candidate, whether it be Republican or Democrat, for the next president, to be the next president.  And I think that she needs to step up and come out and state exactly what the situation is.  You know, some people say, “Well, she had a server in her…”

TODD: “You think this silence is hurting her.”

FEINSTEIN: “I think that from this point on the silence is going to hurt her.”

Appearing on the same program, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) went further, saying that neither Clinton nor the State Department should be taken at their word.

“Did she communicate on behalf of The Clinton Foundation as Secretary of State? Did she call the terrorist attack in Benghazi a terrorist attack in real time?” Graham asked. “I want to know. And the one thing I’ll never agree to is let the State Department tell us what e-mails we should receive, or let her and her team tell us. Some independent group should do that.”

Graham, an obedient McCain toady is now making noises about his own presidential run. Be assured he would never have come out against Hillary if McCain was still referring to her as an “inspiration” and “a rock star.”

Last October, we posted “Two timing McCain jilts Hillary,” which included this quote from the Arizona Republic:  “If U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham decides to run for president in 2016, he can count on the whole-hearted support of the 2008 Republican nominee, U.S. Sen. John McCain, his longtime ally on national security, immigration reform and other matters.”

The previous August, vacillating RINO McCain, called Hillary Clinton a “rock star” and said he might support her in 2016.

In the final analysis, Graham got it right on this issue. Hillary Clinton should be under intense scrutiny for her abysmal mishandling of Benghazi, where four Americans attached to the U.S. embassy in Libya, including the U.S. Ambassador, lost their lives.  Watch this video as Sen. Rand Paul skillfully eviscerates her during a senate hearing.  In contrast, her email trickery is more of the same deception Americans have come to expect from the Clinton’s.
