“Coordinated” attacks: Don’t call them terrorism

September 19, 2016

Despite increased evidence of terrorism, political correctness still reigns supreme

Over the weekend mayhem erupted in several unrelated locations. A bomb placed in a construction dumpster in New York City’s Chelsea district Saturday night injured 29 people, blowing out windows and causing numerous evacuations of nearby buildings. Though NYC’s leftist Mayor Bill de Blasio conceded the explosion was an “intentional act,’’ he waffled on any connection to terrorism until his appearance this morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”  It’s certainly leaning more in the direction that this was a specific act of terror.

“A specific act of terror?”

Three hours after the blast, a second device was found four blocks away, a pressure cooker that investigators also identified as a bomb. Pressure cookers were used by the Boston Marathon bombers, killing three people and injuring at least 264 others — many seriously — on April 15, 2013. A pressure cooker device was also used in a failed jihadist plot to attack New York’s Times Square in 2010.

Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, a naturalized citizen from Afghanistan, sought in connection with this NYC bombing is thought to be part of a terror cell. He was captured this morning following a shootout with police, after being identified by his cell phone left at the at the site of the unexploded pressure cooker.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo noted that the explosion hadn’t been linked to an international terrorist group, but rightly concluded, “A bomb going off is generically a terrorist activity.” Cuomo missed the point that terrorism doesn’t have to  have international roots. Homegrown terrorism is a reality.

Barack Obama, who referred to the Fort Hood massacre as “workplace violence,” has remained mute. In 2010, Nidal Hasan, a devout Muslim U.S. Army major and psychiatrist, slaughtered 14 people (one an unborn child) and wounded 30 on the Texas Army base, as he shouted “Allahu Akhbar!” (Allah is greater!)

For unadulterated foolishness, this takes the cake:  Saturday evening police responded to calls of multiple shootings and stabbing victims inside s mega-complex shopping mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. This BNO news coverage should be in the running for the Politically Correct Award of the Year for reporting, “It was not immediately clear whether the stabbings were linked to terrorism.”  This followed St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson saying, “The individual made some references to Allah and we have confirmed that he asked at least one person if they were Muslim before he assaulted them.”

An explosion shook the Elizabeth, New Jersey train station early Monday, where local and federal authorities were investigating a suspicious package. The blast went off as a bomb robot was examining a device inside a backpack under the train tracks around 12:40 a.m. Information was still sketchy in this NJ.com 1:20 AM report.

Micah Halpern, writing for the Observer cogently sums the reluctance to call terrorism by its rightful name in this commentary, “Explosive Language: Call the New York Bombing Terrorism Already.

Along with calling terrorism by its rightful name, we finally need to shut down immigration from terror sponsoring nations. Obama is flooding the U.S. with hundred of thousands of unable to be vetted “refugees,“ and Hillary Clinton has pledged to continue this self destructive lunacy.

Political correctness be damned.

 


Hillary morphs into Obama demeaning Trump supporters

September 10, 2016

This time we’re characterized as frightened white supremacists — no mention of our need for guns and bibles

What does Hillary Clinton  really think of Trump supporters?  According to this Bloomberg report, the answer obviously is not muchSince conservatives will never march in lockstep with the left, Clinton recklessly views us as “a basket of deplorables” made up of “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic….you name it” people.

Clinton was speaking at an LGBT fundraiser in New York City Friday evening, where she encouraged supporters to “stage an intervention” if they have friends considering voting for Donald Trump.

Tickets for the gala, which focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender supporters, ranged from $1,200 for a standard seat to $250,000 or more to be listed as a host. The fundraiser drew a sold-out crowd of 1,000. Barbra Streisand, a favorite of drag queen performers, provided the entertainment — including a sarcastic rendition of “Send in the Clowns” aimed at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

After receiving blow back for Hillary’s outrageous comments, the Clinton campaign attempted to clarify her “basket of deplorables” remark, saying she was referring to people who actively back Trump, such as donors, endorsers and people at his rallies, not everyone who plans to vote for the Republican businessman.

The feeble attempt to separate average Trump voters from what Hillary and her advisers view as those who align themselves with the white nationalist “alt-right” movement they claim “appears to make up half of his crowd when you observe the tone of his events,”Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said on Twitter.

This hateful new tone, an obvious attempt to deflect from her myriad scandals and questions regarding her health, is a far cry from Hillary‘s 2008 retort when running against Barack Obama. At the time she said, “I was taken aback by the demeaning remarks Sen. Obama made about people in small-town America. His remarks are elitist and out of touch.”

Referring to working-class voters in industrial towns decimated by job losses, Obama described them with these words: “They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

It doesn’t matter which Democrat elitist utters the words, the raw contempt they exhibit for thinking American voters couldn’t be clearer. We are either pathetically clinging to our guns or bibles, or we are vicious hate mongers.


AZ’s U.S. Senators seek to purge conservatives

July 18, 2016

Flake, McCain work from the same conservative-hating playbook

Jeff Flake has had a busy weekend, making certain his highlighted locks are in place, checking to ensure the whitening strips have done the job on his pearly whites, and perfecting his crusade against not only GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, but also Trump’s supporters in case any media outlets come a callin‘. Flake’s abhorrence of conservatives includes those who previously supported him.

Flake follows his mentor, the Democrat-colluding John McCain who waged war on the conservative base of the Arizona Republican Party after he was publicly censured by statewide elected party leaders. McCain even used out-of-state Obama donors to aid in his purge of dedicated elected precinct committeemen. Flake tells media sources that “many of Trump’s fans are motivated by racism and need to get the boot as soon as Trump, he hopes, goes down in flames.”

You might need to read that again. Jeff Flake hopes Trump goes down in flames. The only takeaway is that Flake is hoping Hillary Clinton is victorious. McCain has begrudgingly come out in support of Trump, but only because he’s running for reelection an needs every vote he can get. At age 80, he’s running for another 6-year term. He previously called Hillary Clinton “a rock star he could support.”

Flake should know a thing or two about racism, after raising Tanner, a son who takes bigotry awards in every imaginable category.
This intra-party name calling is nothing new.  In 2008, now retired U.S. Rep. John Shadegg called Arizonans who desire actual border security “intolerant and xenophobic” in an interview with the New York Times. He never gave such ham-fisted quotes to the local press and likely thought the hometown yokels don’t read the tony New York Times. Obviously, he’s wrong. So are McCain and Flake.

Flake’s amnesty slipperiness is legendary. Tony Lee, writing for Breitbart reports Flake also indicated that “he had no interest in aggressively opposing” Obama’s executive amnesty — though studies in the New York Times and the Washington Post have found that Republicans can win the White House in 2016 and beyond without supporting amnesty legislation. Don’t tell that to Jeff Flake.  This issue is visceral for him.

Laura Ingraham, popular conservative talk show host, has said she’d like to move to Arizona to “primary challenge” Jeff Flake.  Talk is cheap, Laura.  Get a move on.


Left has the answer to radical Islamic terrorism

June 15, 2016

In the aftermath of the latest carnage perpetrated by radicalized Muslims residing in the United States, count on liberals to come up with an answer: Repeal the Second Amendment.

The Founders got it wrong, don’cha know?

And Barack Obama still views identifying the radical Islamic terrorists by name as abhorrent. In the aftermath of the deadly terror attack on an Orlando nightclub, Obama and the Left continue to blame guns, not the radicalized Muslim gunman who called 911 and pledged his allegiance to ISIS minutes before opening fire.

David S. Cohen, a constitutional law professor at Drexel University‘s Thomas R. Kline School of Law, demeans the quaint reverence Americans have for the Constitution, saying the “Second Amendment is outdated, a threat to liberty and a suicide pact,” and “must be repealed.” 

This is the endless tape on which the volume is turned up to fever pitch whenever gun related violence takes place.

Cohen and a co-author Krysten Connon wrote a book titled “Living in the Crosshairs: The Untold Stories of Anti-Abortion Terrorism”—  proof that he is familiar with the word “terrorism.” but through a skewed prism relating to a pro-life stance. Cohen and Connon actually use the phrase “abortion care,” saying “providers” of such care are terrorized every day.  Get it?  They are referring to the abortionists, not the innocent human babies whose live are snuffed out for convenience by these “care” givers.

The Boston Marathon bombers used two pressure cookers to kill 3 and main 264 on a lovely Spring day.

Timothy McVeigh detonated a homemade fertilizer bomb in a rental truck at the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City killing 168 and injuring 684.

The terrorism that took nearly 3,000 lives on September 11. 2001 involved 19 committed Islamic extremists commandeering commercial airliners and flying them into the Twin Towers in New York City, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field, after heroic passengers fought to keep that plane away from the Capitol and White House. 

Using the skewed logic of the left, airliners, pressure cookers, rental trucks and fertilizer should be outlawed — keeping us all so much safer.

 


Orlando gay bar massacre: Global Jihadi war, not a hate crime

June 12, 2016

49 people slaughtered, 53 wounded in largest mass shooting in American history

In his excellent commentary, “Orlando shooting part of greater terror strategy,” Dr. Sebastian Gorka speaks plainly and succinctly, without the trappings of political correctness, in calling out the radical Muslim jihadist strategy of terror, which we must realize is a threat to all Americans.

Watch this Fox News clip to hear what we haven’t heard from Barack Obama and those in his administration.  The gunman, American-born Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, 29, had been on the FBI radar. Prior to his savagery in the early morning hours, he called 911 and pledged allegiance to ISIS. His parents are from Afghanistan, where his father, said to be heavily involved in that country’s politics and a supporter of the Taliban,  once ran unsuccessfully for president.

Since we are repeatedly told that profiling is politically incorrect, Mateen was able to obtain employment in security for a company that has contracts to protect federal buildings. Because of his job, he was able to legally purchase firearms and ammunition.


Romney turns on Trump

June 12, 2016

Is religion the back story?

In 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney happily accepted Donald Trump’s endorsement. Romney, in fact, described himself as  “delighted,” “honored” and “pleased,” calling the occasion “one of the things you just can’t imagine happening in your life.” An effusive Romney added, “Donald Trump has shown an extraordinary ability to understand how our economy works,” citing Trump’s record as a job creator. He concluded, “it means a great deal to me to have the endorsement of Mr. Trump.” 

Trump was a generous donor to Mitt Romney’s campaign.

How the beneficiary of Trump’s generosity has turned in just four short years! Now with Trump the Republican presidential nominee, Romney appears on CNN — liberalism’s media heartland — to tell “Situation Room” host Wolf Blitzer that Trump’s election could legitimize racism and misogyny, ushering in a change in the moral fabric of American society, and bizarrely declaring “I don’t want to see trickle-down racism.”

Romney who now refers to Trump as “a phony, and a fraud,” and sounds as through he shares a brain with the marginal Jeff Flake, says “I don’t intend on supporting either of the major party candidates at this point. I’m certainly going to be hoping that we find someone who I have confidence in who becomes the nominee,” Romney stated. “I see way too much demagoguery and populism on both sides of the aisle and I only hope and aspire we’ll see more greatness.”

Just days ago, Flake used indistinguishable language, claiming discomfort with Trump saying, “at this pointand “I hope to be able to support the nominee. I certainly can’t right now.”

Both Romney and Flake are foolishly hoping for a “brokered” convention — a rare political aberration forcing the nomination fight beyond the first ballot — that will throw the Republican Party into chaos from which recovery would be unlikely.

Does this vicious Republicrat,  censured by elected Republican officials in his home state who Romney has endorsed for reelection exemplify his idea of “greatness”? This is the befuddled John McCain introducing Mitt Romney and mistakenly calling him “President Obama.”

Romney’s change of heart on Trump appears to hinge in large part on Trump’s popular pledge to build a wall along the southern border of the US. Both Romney and Flake are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. More than 1.3 million Mormons live in Mexico, up from 240,000 in the 1980s, according to the LDS Newsroom page. Largely due to successful proselytizing efforts, church leaders have supported more open borders and acceptance of illegals into the United States. The church has focused missionary efforts on Latinos and Utah is now considered a sanctuary state for illegals. Mitt Romney’s father, George, was born on a polygamous compound in Mexico, where his American parents moved to escape persecution for their beliefs, returning to the U.S. when he was five, fleeing the Mexican Revolution.

There appears to be a schism with church teachings on the issue of illegals in the U.S. as exemplified in these two views: Civil Society: The Art of Human Connection — which advocates on behalf of welcoming all regardless of their status, and the LDS Church’s Doctrines and Covenants 58.21 which counsels adherence to the laws of the land.

Looking at the broader base, this Rasmussen Reports survey indicates as far as American voters are concerned — and not just Republicans — Donald Trump has a winning formula for fighting illegal immigration.


Obama exhibits abysmal lack of historical awareness

May 27, 2016

Leftist ideology permeates Obama’s moral equivalency speech on apology tour

On his ill-timed Japanese apology tour —- just days before Memorial Day, honoring Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice to insure freedom —- Barack Obama stated, “our visit to Hiroshima will honor all those who were lost in World War II.”

All those”?

Would that also include the Japanese who engaged in the sneak attack of Pearl Harbor that resulted in 2,335 military personnel killed, including 2,008 Navy personnel, 109 Marines, and 218 Army. Added to this were 68 civilians, making the total 2403 people dead. 1,177 were from the USS Arizona. Wounded numbered 1,143 with 710 Navy, 69 Marines, and 364 Army, as well as 103 civilians. Japanese personnel losses numbered 55.

Is Obama counting the Nazi butchers who engaged in atrocities resulting in the systematic genocide of millions?

“We have known the agony of war. Let us now find the courage, together, to spread peace, and pursue a world without nuclear weapons,” says the same Obama who capitulated on allowing the corrupt madmen of Iran to proceed with nuclear enrichment in the deal worked out by his Secretary of State John Kerry, further destabilizing the volatile Middle East and ultimately our own national security as well as that of Europe. Additionally, the Mullahs have long threatened to wipe Israel off the face of the map. They are now ever closer to their doomsday goals.

Take time to read Ambassador John Bolton’s masterful commentary in the New York Post on this latest leg of Obama’s shameful apology tour.
