A Radical Red Commie Rat


hillary-disasterous-promises

I’m a bit late in posting this Justin Smith submission. After last night’s Trump/Crooked Hillary debate. I thought I’d begin this intro with Justin’s apt description of the former Secretary of State to give reader’s something to think about if you recall Hillary constantly told listeners to do some fact checking on Donald Trump’s assertions:

 

Hillary Clinton is … a radical red Commie rat with a miserable reputation of uttering flagrant and prodigious lies, who advocates class warfare, state ownership of all property and an egalitarian Utopia operated by an oligarchy, despite all her recent attempts to present herself as a centrist.

A Radical Red Commie Rat

 

By Justin O. Smith

Hillary Clinton is not a “liberal” or a “progressive” if one wants to be accurate. She’s a radical red Commie rat with a miserable reputation of uttering flagrant and prodigious lies, who advocates class warfare, state ownership of all property and an egalitarian Utopia operated by an oligarchy, despite all her recent attempts to present herself as a centrist.

 

Hillary currently has the full support of the Communist Party USA, which is not surprising. She hasn’t changed her support of full blown Marxism and collapsing the capitalist system, since Bill Clinton operative Larry Nichols saw her in Arkansas, during the 1970s, wearing a medallion that read, “Proud member of the American Communist Party”. She’s as liberal as Elizabeth Warren and barely more moderate than Bernie Sanders, who is a self-avowed socialist.

 

Hillary has fought for the Marxist ideology and worked to ensure it infiltrated its way into the public education system from 1969 on. After she met with the radical Leftist Saul Alinsky in 1968, she subsequently wrote a positive analysis of Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ for her senior thesis at Wellesley College, titled ‘There is Only the Fight …’, and later, she became a co-chair for Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation, a “community organizing” group, from 1972 into the 1990s. She used her position as First Lady to insert Alinsky’s ideas into President Bill Clinton’s education policy.

 

Radical Marxist indoctrination of Americans over the past sixty years has largely been successful, and it has created an extremely ill-informed, poorly educated, group of people that includes most Democrats and some Independents and Republicans, who accept the “progressive” notion of a “living Constitution”, which functionally is not any different from not having a Constitution. This has given sway to an anything-goes mentality that allows the unlimited expansion of government, placing America on the road to ruin.

 

Under Obama’s guidance and policies, today’s Democratic Party has made such a huge leftward lunge that it is now nearly indistinguishable from the Communist Party, and Hillary was helping Obama every step of the way. This is not an exaggeration whatsoever, and it can be verified at the Communist Party USA’s website, where it is difficult to find much, if any, difference between the CPUSA’s and the Democratic Party’s views and solutions on the issues, from wealth distribution to [homosexual] “gay rights”, the condemnation of “racist cops”, universal healthcare, climate change and unfettered immigration.

 

On August 9th, 2016, Charisma News showed the tight bond between the CPUSA and the Democratic Party, reporting: “CPUSA National Chairman John Bachtel actually supported U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. But when it became obvious … that Hillary Clinton would be the Democrat nominee, he announced he would vote for her in the November election.”

 

Hillary is promising everything under the sun to her fellow radical red Commie rat comrades, and she is prepared to deliver results on the backs of the wealthy, the producers and job-makers, essentially stealing wealth through massive taxation. She leads a socialist war on the rich in order to fund her job-killing and nation destroying programs, such as cradle-to-grave healthcare, a radical and costly climate change agenda based on junk science, tax-subsidized abortions, free college tuition for all, new regulatory mandates on businesses and the LGBT agenda.

 

Even as Hillary and the Democratic Party hint at unspecified “middle class” tax relief, they propose a tax hike on families making at least $250,000 a year. Somehow they easily ignore the fact that total taxes at all levels consume up to half of many families’ incomes.

 

In 2015, the federal government took a record $3.18 trillion in tax dollars, and yet, with the national debt at $20 trillion, Hillary is proposing to spend even more.

 

Does anyone really believe Hillary’s plans for the United States are sustainable? She certainly doesn’t. But what better way to usher in the complete Socialist Economic Model and One Party Rule than by collapsing our capitalist economy, while undermining America’s Judeo-Christian principles, just as Marx and Alinsky outlined?

 

Among many other harmful policies, in part, Hillary will:

 

  • continue attacking fossil fuel production while supporting new EPA rules on fracking

 

  • force all states to expand Medicaid

 

  • oppose photo ID laws while supporting same day voter registration and universal automatic voter registration, making it easier to steal elections through voter fraud and illegal aliens casting votes for Democrats.

 

  • continue Common Core and expand the federal role in education while supporting access to restrooms and locker rooms based on gender identity instead of biological sex.

 

  • And she will limit free speech by overturning the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling that allows nonprofits, corporations and unions to have a voice in the political process while she also seeks to criminalize any criticism of Islam.

 

 

America has witnessed Hillary’s abuse of power as Secretary of State and the enrichment of herself and her family through blatant influence selling to agents of Kazakhstan, China, Saudi Arabia and Russia. Contributions flowing into the Clinton Foundation and Bill’s speaking fees grew exponentially and by leaps and bounds under her tenure at State, and deals detrimental to U.S. interests, like Uranium One, became common place. Her corrupt approach to power was further evidenced by her illegal email scheme and the lies and cover-up that followed; Hillary Clinton also lied about Benghazi, even to grieving family members, because a terror attack was a political liability.

 

Just as troubling, Hillary’s Vice-Presidential pick, former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine, is a known sympathizer of Islamofascist terrorists and Marxist revolutionaries. During the 1980s Kaine embraced the hardcore Cold War variety of Marxist liberation theology in Honduras, and he was known to have actively supported the left-wing gun running Jesuits, such as Father Jim Carney, and Nicaraguan Sandinistas [communists], such as Jose Reyes Mata, who served with the infamous Che Guevara in Bolivia. Fast forward to 2007 and America finds Kaine appointing Esam Omeish to Virginia’s Immigration Commission; Omeish has ties to terror financing as well as known terrorists through the Islamic Center of Passaic County (New Jersey) and other Islamic organizations. Kaine also gave out a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011 to Jamal Barzinji, who was investigated by the FBI in 2003 due to his terrorist ties and associations with known islamofascist terrorist, Sami al-Arian.

 

I wonder if Kaine turned a blind-eye to the terrorism ties, because of the $10,000 donation Barzinji’s organization [International Institute of Islamic Thought] handed him in 2011 and the $43,000 from Barzinji-tied New Dominion PAC, or simply because Kaine is an anti-American radical red Commie rat, just like Hillary.

 

What will you do to fight back?

 

Hillary Clinton is a Communist and a tyrant, and the choice is as plain as day and night for any American patriot. Nothing will change if Clinton is elected, except America will become impoverished and freedom and liberty will become ideas tucked away in historical archives, unknown to future generations. Anyone who loves America must do their dead-level best, using everything at their disposal, to prevent Hillary from ever again entering the White House, and we must take any risk to ensure America continues in freedom with individual liberty alive and well centuries from today.

Rising Threat: The Islamic State’s Militarization of Children

 

By Dr. Sebastian L. Gorka, Katharine C. Gorka & Claire Herzog

September 2016

Threat Knowledge Group Special Report

 

Dr. Sebastian L. Gorka serves as the Vice President and Professor of Strategy and Irregular Warfare at the Institute of World Politics in Washington, DC. Previously, he was the Major General Matthew C. Horner Distinguished Chair of Military Theory at Marine Corps University where he provided courses and lectures on Irregular Warfare. Before that, he was Associate Dean of Congressional Affairs and Relations to the Special Operations Community at National Defense University. He is also Associate Fellow with SOCOM’s Joint Special Operations University, a regular instructor with the Special Warfare Center and School in Fort Bragg and for the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division. Dr. Gorka served as an adviser to the Department of Defense in the renewal of its Irregular Warfare Joint Operating Concept and is the author of the New York Times besteller, Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War. Dr. Gorka is the Chairman of the Threat Knowledge Group.

 

Katharine C. Gorka is the President of the Threat Knowledge Group as well as the Council on Global Security. From 2009 to 2014 she served as the Executive Director of the Westminster Institute, based in McLean, Virginia. A recognized expert in the field of democratic transition in post-dictatorial nations, Katharine spent nearly two decades working in Central Europe. She was the regional head of the USAID-funded Democracy Network program, run by the National Forum Foundation. Gorka is the co-editor of Fighting the Ideological War: Winning Strategies from Communism to Islamism and the author of the White Paper, The Flawed Science Behind America’s Counter-Terrorism Strategy, and an article in The Journal of International Security Affairs, The war between Al Qaeda and ISIS–and what it means for America.

 

Claire Herzog is a counterterrorism and national security researcher and program manager at the Threat Knowledge Group. Ms. Herzog has worked with the War Studies Department at King’s College London, where her efforts focused on extreme event preparedness and the radicalization of terrorists. Prior to that, she interned with Congressman Peter King’s office, where she prepared briefs covering topics ranging from Boko Haram and the ongoing threat from al Qaeda to the effects of Hurricane Sandy and Operation Fast and Furious. She is a recent graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Peace, War and Defense with a minor in History.

 

I n the opening scene of American Sniper, a sniper on the roof of a building is providing cover for a U.S. Marine convoy during the 2003 Iraq War. One of the snipers spots a woman and child exiting a building. The woman hands what looks like a grenade to the child, who starts running at the convoy. The sniper has to make a split-second decision without knowing for certain that it is, in fact, a grenade: shoot the young boy or risk letting the convoy get blown up. He shoots the child, and the undetonated grenade falls to the ground. The sniper made the right decision, but he had endured a nearly impossible moment. Not only did he very nearly make the wrong call, exposing his fellow warfighters to deadly force, but he will now have to live with the knowledge that he killed a child, even if it was the right and necessary decision.

 

These are the new contours of the battle against the Islamic State. A growing body of evidence makes clear that the Islamic State (IS) is actively exploiting children on the battlefield in order to gain the upper hand against stronger and better armed adversaries. Most recently, on August 20th, 54 people were killed and 66 injured at a wedding in Turkey, and the alleged perpetrator was a 12 to 14-year-old boy wearing a suicide vest. Five days later, the Islamic State released a video (right) [Blog Editor: To view video go to TKG post] of five young boys dressed in desert camouflage executing at point-blank range five Kurdish fighters.

 

The rate at which the Islamic State is recruiting, training, and exploiting children presents a new set of challenges for U.S. warfighters and law enforcement. Not only do we risk over-looking the threat posed by children, assuming their innocence, but we also run the risk of moral injury and increased rates of PTSD to those who must confront this threat. This paper looks at how the Islamic State is militarizing children in order to better prepare the United States to face this new and rising threat.

 

The Use of Children in Conflict

 

The use of children in war is not an innovation of the 21st century. Rather, it dates back hundreds of years to when children acted as squires and drummer boys on the battle-fields of Europe and as powder monkeys on British Royal Navy ships.1 The past seven-ty-five years have seen a proliferation of child soldiers: as Hitler Youth in Germany, as members of the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda toting AK-47s, and planting land-mines for Colombia’s FARC. The Council on Foreign Relations has reported that there are approximately 300,000 child combatants worldwide and that forty percent of the world’s armed organizations feature children in their ranks.2

 

This issue does not exclusively beleaguer the nations where such conflicts occur; rather, it is one the United States has directly confronted time and again, especially since 9/11. The first U.S. soldier killed in combat in the War on Terror, Sergeant 1st Class Nathan Chapman, was shot in 2002 by a 14-year old sniper.3 Three teens, ages 13 to 15, were captured while fighting U.S. troops in Afghanistan in 2003 and sent to Guantanamo Bay.4 In 2006, Shiite militias in Iraq urged children to throw rocks and gasoline bombs at American convoys to provoke U.S. retaliation.5

 

The Historical Role of Children in Terrorism

 

While the exploitation of children for military purposes has a long history, in the past 25 years its prevalence has grown, particularly in terrorist operations. For example, in the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu, U.S. Army Rangers and Delta Force operators were am-bushed by Somali men, women and “children armed with automatic weapons and rock-et-propelled grenades.”6 According to Ambassador Robert Oakley, women and children were not only used as shields but were themselves firing weapons.

 

The conflict in the Palestinian territories has seen the rise of the cult of martyrdom among youth, one which continues to be perpetuated: recently Hamas in Palestine put on a play in which a Muslim girl stabs an Israeli and is then “martyred” by Israeli soldiers. The children appearing in the play ranged from four to eight years old.7 In Nigeria, one out of five Boko Haram suicide attacks have been conducted by children, and 75% of those children used by Boko Haram are girls.8

 

But even within this growing trend of the exploitation of children for military purposes, the Islamic State stands out for the manner and degree to which it is recruiting, training and deploying children. Unlike many of the child soldiers seen in Africa—in Uganda, Liberia, and Democratic Republic of the Congo—who were utilized as untrained cannon fodder, the Islamic State is investing significant resources, time, and effort to groom an “unquestioning and ideologically pure” Islamist army for the future.9 They do not simply strap a suicide vest to a child and send them to blow up an Iraqi military target. They actively recruit them, psychologically and ideologically indoctrinate them, teach them how to fight and use weapons, and then put them in the ranks alongside men twice their age. These are not “mindless drones,” but willing and able jihadi equivalents of the Hitler Youth.

 

While terrorist organizations have regularly relied on children in different supporting roles, one can see a dramatic difference from al Qaeda to ISIS. Osama bin Laden’s Declaration of Jihad on Americans, dated September 2, 1996, encouraged the participation of young men in jihad:

 

“There is nothing strange about this: Muhammad’s companions were young men. And the young men of today are the successor of the early ones.”10

 

However, this position was later contradicted by the al Qaeda Training Manual discovered in 2000, which states:

 

“The requirements of military work are numerous, and a minor cannot perform them. The nature of hard and continuous work in dangerous conditions requires a great deal of psychological, mental, and intellectual fitness, which are not usually found in a minor.”11

 

This did not stop al Qaeda from using abducted children to retrieve weapons from the battlefield, get through checkpoints, and act as suicide bombers; but, they did not as a rule recruit and specifically train child fighters. The Islamic State, however, has developed a complete system for grooming, recruiting and training minors as jihadists.

 

ISIS’s Use of Children: Reasoning

 

The eighth issue of Dabiq, the Islamic State’s propaganda magazine, features an article titled “The Lions of Tomorrow.” Although brief, it introduces the Cubs of the Caliphate and explains their importance to the Islamic State:

 

The Islamic State has taken it upon itself to fulfill the Ummah’s duty to-wards this generation in preparing it to face the crusaders and their allies in defense of Islam and to raise high the word of Allah in every land. It has established institutes for these ashbal (lion cubs) to train and hone their military skills, and to teach them the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). It is these young lions to whom the Islamic State recently handed over two agents caught spying for Russian Intelligence and an agent caught spying for the Israeli Mossad, to be executed and displayed as an example to anyone else thinking of infiltrating the mujahidin.12

 

 

 

the-lions-of-tomorrow-dabiqThe ISIS magazine, Dabiq, features an article entitled “The Lions of Tomorrow” about the special role of youth in ISIS

 

ISIS is using the teachings of Mohammed to justify exploiting its children inside the Caliphate to become the jihadis of tomorrow.

 

The Islamic State justifies their use of child fighters, by saying,

 

“And just as the children of the Sahabah stained their swords with the blood of yesterday’s taghut (idolator)…so too will the children of the Khilafah stain their bullets with the blood of today’s tawaghit (idolaters).”13

 

ISIS has and is continuing to prime its children inside the Caliphate to become the jihadis of tomorrow, and they are using the teachings of Mohammed to justify these actions.

 

ISIS’s Use of Children: By the Numbers

 

Children are being recruited or abducted by the Islamic State at alarming rates. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, ISIS targeted schools and mosques to recruit 400 children in 2015 alone.14 In addition to those recruited, the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq estimated in June 2015 that ISIS had abducted between 800 and 900 children between nine and fifteen years old.15 Of grave concern are the estimated 700,000 refugee children out of school at the end of September 2015 as a result of the Syrian Civil War. That is a large and vulnerable population that the Islamic State is likely tapping into, providing services and education that the children otherwise would not receive and in turn recruiting countless more Lion Cubs. One expert estimated that the Caliphate has at least 1,500 children in its ranks.16

 

From January 2015 to January 2016, 89 children were eulogized. In the last six months, ISIS propaganda has featured at least twelve child executioners and one child participating in a public execution.17 By using children as soldiers, suicide bombers, and executioners, the Islamic State is scoring a major win in the propaganda wars. According to one group of analysts, ISIS is able to “gain the psychological upper hand against their opponents because their videos of children performing brutal acts break increasing global fear of the ‘caliphate’.”18

 

ISIS’s exploitation of children is on the rise. On April 29, ISIS’s media wing, al-Hayat, released a French-language video chant calling for revenge against the “crusader” coalition for the massacres and destruction caused by allied airstrikes. Unlike previous videos, however, the soldiers singing this nasheed were children—the Lion Cubs of the Caliphate. This is not the first time al-Hayat has included child soldiers in their videos, but this video, which makes children both the voices and the faces of the Islamic State, is one of the most significant depictions of children in ISIS media. As images of children training with handguns, Kalashnikovs, and RPG launchers fill the screen, they sing, “Beware, your end is already planned. Our warriors are everywhere, ready to sacrifice themselves. Beware, our orphans are growing. They feed their thirst for revenge in rage.”19

 

The Islamic State’s Indoctrination Operations

 

Since its declaration of the caliphate on June 29, 2014, the Islamic State has employed children in many different roles, ranging from recruiters to spies, guards to frontline soldiers, suicide bombers to executioners. In order to raise devoted and obedient Cubs, ISIS has turned much of its focus to the education of children. They run as many as 24 schools in Raqqa and many in Mosul, where ISIS abolished its education system the day they entered the city, in addition to at least eight schools and religious seminaries in faraway Nangarhar, Afghanistan.20 According to the PBS Frontline documentary “ISIS in Afghanistan,” the Islamic State is educating and training all local children in one Afghan village from the age of three so that “each generation will learn and teach in turn” the ways of jihad and ISIS’s brand of Islam.21 By June 2014, ISIS had, by one count, 22 sharia institutes in Aleppo alone. These religious schools are paired with physical training camps, where children are taught fighting and weapons skills. Some were even made to decapitate blond-haired dolls as practice for real life executions.22 The Islamic State is not only using these schools to recruit fighters, but also as a means of investing in children so that their “radical message endures beyond the group itself.”23

 

As summarized in the Washington Institute’s report, “Inside the Caliphate’s Classroom,” the Islamic State finished its “intimidation campaign” in 2013 and made bureaucratic reforms in 2014 that paved the way for the “indoctrination campaign” taking place right now.24 As part of this campaign, ISIS has written or re-written dozens of textbooks on varying topics: English, history, physics, mathematics, faith, physical activity, and Islamic law, among others. While some of the book covers are quite ordinary, others feature jihadi-oriented images. For example, one shows an image of a decapitated Statue of Liberty with an ISIS flag replacing her head.

 

In order to raise devoted and obedient Cubs, ISIS has turned much of its focus to the education of children.

 

The physical activity textbook is covered with images of soldiers training with weapons. Finally, a textbook on Mohammed’s teaching depicts gun-wielding soldiers serving un-der the Islamic State flag.25

 

These textbooks are “the instruments of a systematic indoctrination strategy,” used to justify Islamic State beliefs and teachings “in a style and forum through which children in all societies today are molded into adults.”26 ISIS’s apocalyptic and violent narrative of Islam pervades even the most innocent of teachings. For example, the Arabic literature textbook features out lines of guns at the bot-tom of each chapter.27 In their more explicitly violent books, such as on physical prepared-ness, the Islamic State includes a diagram showing how to assemble and use a variety of weapons.28 Through these teachings, ISIS has created and validated their worldview among its supporters, while simultaneously invalidating any contrary narratives or viewpoints.

 

However, the current youth population being raised in the Islamic State is not the only group we have to worry about. According to a report from the Quilliam Foundation published in March 2016, there are currently 31,000 pregnant women living within the Caliphate. These women were largely recruited as “baby factories,” not only to populate the new state, but also to create the next generation of jihadis born and raised exclusively within the Islamic State, predisposed to violence and terror.29 Even once the Islamic State is defeated, this new generation may haunt us. Unlike children who were brought to ISIS territory by their parents or who chose to travel there themselves, the children born within the Islamic State know nothing but what ISIS teaches them and believe that “violence is a way of life.”30 This will render any sort of de-radicalization program very difficult and guarantee a continued jihadi threat much past the Islamic State’s demise.

 

Precedents in the History of Islam

 

Although the Islamic State’s extensive exploitation of children is unique in today’s world, there are other precedents for this in Islamic history. For example, ISIS at least partially mirrors the Mamluks of Egypt—soldiers enslaved by the Muslim Egyptian army in their youth. After being purchased, each boy was, “cut off from his land of origin, his country is [now] Egypt; his father the master who purchased him; and his brothers: his companions in arms.”31 This sounds eerily similar to what ISIS is doing with the children who willingly travel to the Caliphate: they are made to burn their passports and accept the Caliphate as their nation, abandon their families if they do not support the Islamic State, and accept their fellow soldiers as their brothers. The 14th century Muslim historian Ibn Khaldun even ascribes the success and wealth of the early Islamic empire to the Mamluks:

 

“Thus one group of Mamluks follows another and generation succeeds generation and Islam rejoices in the wealth…which is acquired by eons of them and the boughs of the kingdom are luxuriant with the freshness and verdure of youth.”32

 

Today ISIS has taken and created a class of highly indoctrinated child warriors similar to the Mamluks.

 

More recently, Saddam Hussein also exploited children for military purposes. His Youth Vanguard movement recruited children as young as twelve to receive military training and placed them into military units to be used during the Iran-Iraq War.33 More important than the Youth Vanguard, though, were the Ashbal Saddam, or Saddam Lion Cubs. The Ashbal Saddam recruited boys ages ten to fifteen and sent them to military camps for indoctrination and military training for as much as fourteen hours a day.34

 

These boys were not simply cannon fodder but rather were seen as the future of the regime, similar to the Islamic State’s vision of a future population of “pure” jihadists. After toppling Saddam’s regime in Iraq in 2003, the transitional government initiated a de-Ba’athification process that left “over 100,000 Iraqis unemployed, angry, and armed.”35 Many of these former Ba’athist officers and officials ended up joining the Islamic State, often at the highest levels, bringing with them knowledge, lessons, and skills from Saddam’s reign.36 The training and use of children in battle and in carrying out acts of terrorism is one way that the legacy of Saddam Hussein runs through the veins of ISIS.

 

Many former Ba’athist officers and officials ended up joining the Islamic State, often at the highest levels, bringing with them knowledge, lessons, and skills from Saddam’s reign.

 

ISIS Youth Supporters in the United States

 

The Islamic State has not limited its recruitment or use of children to within its borders. The United States is experiencing a deadly combination of increased levels of youth recruitment and training in Islamic State-held territory paired with high numbers of youth radicalized by ISIS on U.S. soil. Both internationally and domestically, ISIS is targeting a much younger audience through social media platforms, the utilization of popular hashtags, and their own apps, such as Library of Zeal’s “Alphabet” app. The vocabulary and images used throughout the app include tanks, guns, rockets, and specifically jihadist terminology.

 

isis-youth-problem-arrests-by-age

ISIS Youth Problem- Arrests by Age

 

isissupporters-in-us-ages-15-25

ISIS Supporters in US- Ages 15-25

 

Since March 2014, 110 ISIS supporters have been interdicted in the U.S. Of those, nearly 60 percent were between the ages of 15 and 25 years old. Even more concerning, 41 of those interdictions were potential or attempted domestic attackers, with 54 percent of those domestic attackers falling between 15 and 25 years of age.

 

A prime example of this is Justin Sullivan, a 19-year old from Morganton, N.C., arrested on June 19, 2015. Shortly before his 20th birthday, Sullivan allegedly robbed and murdered a neighbor for money to buy an assault rifle, tried to hire someone to murder his parents, and plotted a massacre inspired by ISIS. He is the first American ISIS supporter to face the death penalty.37 As a domestic plotter, Justin Sullivan represents a third of the sup-porters ages 15 to 25.

 

Representing nearly 57 percent of that age group, three Colorado girls, ages 15, 16, and 17, attempted to travel to the Islamic State in October 2014, but were stopped at the Frankfurt airport. Unbeknownst to their families, the three girls were sharing militant recruitment videos, one of which featured Anwar al-Awlaki, following and interacting with online jihadists, and tweeting their support for jihad and the Islamic State thousands of times. Their attempted trip to join ISIS has been called a significant case study, as “the process they underwent—from use of social media, radicalization, recruitment online, even through the actual travel route to join the Islamic State—all follow the exact same pattern shared by several hundred Westerners.”38

 

On August 28, 2015, 17-year-old Ali Shukri Amin of Manassas, Virginia, was sentenced to more than eleven years in prison followed by a lifetime supervised release and monitoring of his internet activities for providing material support to ISIS.39 Using the Twitter handle @Amreekiwitness, Amin instructed his followers to use Bitcoin to send money to ISIS and facilitated supporters seeking to travel to the Islamic State. He tweeted more than 7,000 times to more than 4,000 followers, espousing his pro-ISIS beliefs to many other vulnerable individuals. These ISIS convictions provide a snapshot of the current domestic situation that law enforcement can study to better understand and prepare for future cases.

 

Threat to Our Warfighters

 

The engagement of child soldiers both abroad and domestically in support of or inspired by the Islamic State will greatly challenge American warfighters and law enforcement officers. Abroad, our warfighters face strategic limitations when facing insurgencies and terrorist organizations in the form of our rules of engagement. Generally, American ROE “give American soldiers the option of

 

using force only in the face of a ‘hostile act’ or ‘hostile intent,’ or when an enemy fighter has been ‘positively identified.’”40 Once the enemy is engaged, ROE dictate which, how, and where weapons can be used, and indicate the command chain that can authorize the use of each weapon. The self-imposed U.S. rules of engagement are so stringent and restrictive, going far beyond the requirements of the law of armed conflict, that they often tie the hands of American warfighters engaged in perilous situations. Furthermore, “American forces play by the rules while our enemies exploit those same rules” to their advantage and our detriment, which has resulted in unnecessary deaths of both American soldiers and local civilian populations.41

 

The constraints imposed by our ROE are magnified when facing child combatants. Our rules state that children are civilians, not combatants, and we are mandated to avoid any attack where civilians are present. In America’s airstrike campaign against ISIS, it is re-ported that the Obama Administration has repeatedly made the decision to leave known military targets intact so as to avoid any civilian casualties.42 The Islamic State not only flagrantly disregards the laws of war—using child soldiers, killing civilians, and enslaving enemies—but they also “launch international propaganda campaigns when our pains-taking targeting proves to be the least bit imprecise.”43 If American soldiers are forced to engage children on the battlefield against the Islamic State, the propaganda value gained by ISIS will be significant—not only will American morale take a dive, but ISIS will undoubtedly gain countless recruits as a result.

 

Finally, it is important to consider the moral hazard associated with facing children on the battlefield. The Islamic State has assumed the risk of using children—alienating potential supporters and inciting stronger retaliation from its opponents—because the U.S. is forced to assume the costs—upholding the law of armed conflict and rules of engagement, increasing American opposition at home, and alienating any potential allies in the region—which outweigh those risks. Not only would this challenge our ROE, but it could also cause severe psychological and moral injury to our troops, who are taught to protect and value the life of a child. This will be extremely important to consider if the U.S. decides to put boots on the ground in a direct combat role in the future.

 

If American soldiers are forced to engage children on the battlefield against the Islamic State, the propaganda value gained by ISIS will be significant—not only will American morale take a dive, but ISIS will undoubtedly gain countless recruits as a result.

 

Threat to Our Law Enforcement Officers

 

The Islamic State’s employment of children in their ranks not only threatens our warfighters abroad but also endangers our law enforcement officers at home. Of the 22 domestic ISIS plotters age 15 to 25 interdicted in the U.S., seven targeted law enforcement officers and seven targeted members of the military or military installations in America. In addition to this direct threat, there is also a domestic weak spot of concern.

 

According to our Transportation Security Administration, children under eighteen are not required to have ID to travel domestically. That makes tracking or halting the movements of jihadis who are minors extremely difficult. Furthermore, children twelve and un-der are allowed to leave their shoes, light jackets, and headwear on during screening.44 With increased wait times and longer lines at airport security checkpoints, this threat could prove to be an increasingly attractive soft target for ISIS supporters, both children radicalized by the group and adult supporters using children to avoid arousing suspicion.

 

According to a U.S. Southern Command intelligence report, Sunni extremists are already utilizing Latin American smuggling routes to cross the border into the United States.45 There is a very good chance that ISIS will not only turn to these smugglers, but also that they will focus on smuggling children, who are naturally less suspicious, into the U.S. The surges of unaccompanied alien children (UAC) in 2014 and 2016 paired with the U.S. pol-icy to accommodate such children that make it to America together create an additional vulnerability that the Islamic State and its supporters could exploit to infiltrate and attack America. These are but a few threats American law enforcement could face from children who support or are inspired by ISIS, and they must be taken seriously before we suffer another massacre at home.

 

The Islamic State has warned us:

 

“Beware, we have what we need to defend ourselves: well-armed soldiers are ready to kill you…Your blood will flow for your heinous crimes… Beware, we are ready to fight back. Our swords are sharpened to slice necks… Beware, men are ready to blow themselves up, ready to respond to the evil you have brought. Beware, your roads will soon be rigged with mines by well-trained and determined brothers. Beware, your end is al-ready planned. Our warriors are everywhere, ready to sacrifice them-selves. Beware, our orphans are growing. They feed their thirst for revenge in rage.”

 

The United States should heed this threat before today’s Cubs of the Caliphate become tomorrow’s Army of Jihadis waging war on American soil.

Pentagon’s Sloppy Bookkeeping Means $6.5 Trillion Can’t Pass an Audit

 

The Defense Department over the years has been notorious for its lax accounting practices. The Pentagon has never completed an audit of how they actually spend the trillions of dollars on wars, equipment, personnel, housing, healthcare and procurements.

 

An increasingly impatient Congress has demanded that the Army achieve “audit readiness” for the first time by Sept. 30, 2017, so that lawmakers can get a better handle on military spending. But Pentagon watchdogs think that may be mission impossible, and for good reason.

 

A Department of Defense inspector general’s report released last week offered a jaw-dropping insight into just how bad the military’s auditing system is.

 

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service, the behemoth Indianapolis-based agency that provides finance and accounting services for the Pentagon’s civilian and military members, could not provide adequate documentation for $6.5 trillion worth of year-end adjustments to Army general fund transactions and data.

 

The DFAS has the sole responsibility for paying all DOD military and personnel, retirees and annuitants, along with Pentagon contractors and vendors. The agency is also in charge of electronic government initiatives, including within the Executive Office of the President, the Department of Energy and the Departing of Veterans Affairs.

 

There’s nothing in the new IG’s report to suggest that anyone has misplaced or absconded with large sums of money. Rather, the agency has done an incompetent job of providing written authorization for every one of their transactions – so-called “journal vouchers” that READ THE REST (Pentagon’s Sloppy Bookkeeping Means $6.5 Trillion Can’t Pass an Audit; By The Fiscal Times; Yahoo Finance; 7/31/16)

Methane hydrate apocalypse? Maybe not…

Posted on September 20, 2016 by energyskeptic

 

[ I don’t think there’s enough evidence yet to decide for sure there won’t be a gas hydrate apocalypse, but here’s some evidence that this might not happen. Even Benton, who wrote “When Life Nearly Died” didn’t pin the mass murderer of the Permian extinction on gas hydrates.

 

I’ve also read Peter Ward’s “Under a Green Sky” and many other books and peer-reviewed articles, and will continue to try to follow the mystery of extinction events and who the mass murderers were.

 

Until then, here are some of the articles I’ve run across that cast some doubt on this being a sure thing, though clearly more research needs to be done.

Alice Friedemann is a transportation expert sounding the alarm on the unsustainable nature of our modern trucking system, which is critical for delivering goods where they need to be, when they need to be, in our just-in-time economy.

 

The world’s trucking fleet is remarkably dependent on petroleum and, for a number of reasons she outlines in this interview, is not feasibly able to shift over to electricity or other alternative fuels.

 

To warn of the risks and consequences of a collapse in trucking, she founded EnergySkeptic.com and authored the book When The Trucks Stop Running: Energy and the Future of Transportation. And while unlikely, her projected aftermath of a sudden complete shutdown of the trucking fleet is sobering, revealing just how dependent we are:

 

Within a week, in roughly this order, grocery stores would be out of dairy and other items that are delivered many times a day. And by the week, the shelves would be empty.

Hospitals, pharmacies, factories, and many other businesses also get several deliveries a day, and they’d be running out of stuff the first day.

And the second day, there’s be panic and hoarding. And restaurants, pharmacies would close. ATM’s would be out of money. Construction would stop. There’d be increasing layoffs. Increasing enormous amounts of trash not getting picked up, 685,000 tons a day. Service stations would be closed. Very few people would be working. And the livestock would start to be hungry from lack of feed deliveries.

Then within two weeks, clean water supplies would run out. Within four weeks to eight weeks, there wouldn’t be coal delivered to power plants and electricity would start shutting down. And when that happened, about a quarter of our pipelines use electricity, and so natural gas plants wouldn’t be fed natural gas and they’d start shutting down.

It’s a big interdependent system. That’s part of the problem. It’s like Liebig’s Law of the Minimum.

Civilization Jihad aka Stealth Jihad

 

  1. Origins of Civilization Jihad (Stealth Jihad)

 

August 2004, an alert Maryland Transportation Authority Police officer observed a woman wearing traditional Islamic garb videotaping the support structures of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, and conducted a traffic stop. The driver was Ismail Elbarasse and detained on an outstanding material witness warrant issued in Chicago in connection with fundraising for Hamas. In the basement of his home in Annandale, VA, a hidden sub-basement was found, containing 80 banker boxes of the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. One of the most important of these documents was the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic plan for the United States and was entitled, “An Explanatory Memorandum On The General Strategic Goal For The Group In North America” (English version or Arabic version), written in May 1991 primarily by Mohamed Akram, a former director of the United Association of Studies and Research (UASR), a Hamas front that was based in Northern Virginia from 1991 to 2004. UASR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorist finance trial case that this document was entered into evidence, was headed by Ahmed Yousef who now serves as political advisor to head of Hamas in Gaza, Ismail Haniya.

Here is a segment of the FrontPageMag story on Hillary is trying to bring Sharia Law and the US Constitution together, oh my!!!!

 

  “As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton affirmed the Obama Administration’s support for this campaign on July 15, 2011, when she gave an address on the freedom of speech at an OIC [i.e. Organization of Islamic Cooperation] conference on Combating Religious Intolerance.

 

“Together,” she said, “we have begun to overcome the false divide that pits religious sensitivities against freedom of expression and we are pursuing a new approach.”

 

But how could both be protected? Ihsanoglu [Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu] offered the answer: criminalizing what he considered to be hatred and incitement to violence. “We cannot and must not ignore the implications of hate speech and incitement of discrimination and violence.” But in restricting the freedom of speech, Clinton had a First Amendment to deal with, and so in place of legal restrictions on criticizing Islam, she suggested “old-fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming, so that people don’t feel that they have the support to do what we abhor.” She held a lengthy closed-door meeting with Ihsanoglu in December 2011 to facilitate the adoption of measures that would advance the OIC’s anti-free speech agenda, which amounted to an attempt to impose Sharia blasphemy laws upon the West. But what agreements she and Ihsanoglu made, if any, have never been disclosed. Hillary’s contact with Ihsanoglu was initiated by Gulen’s associate Ozkok. Read more at these links:

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

 

RUSH: Now I want to go back to the rest of the new totalitarian piece and give you some examples of it.  And it has been suggested to me that I ask all of you to start paying attention to examples of this that you encounter. Not necessarily things that happen to you, but things that you see in the news, maybe where you live or just anywhere.  Just make a note of it, and become aware of it.  It’s one thing to have this new totalitarianism described to you.  By the way, it’s not new.  The real brilliance of this piece is like Angelo Codevilla’s piece on the ruling class.

 

 

It just infuriates them because the key element of totalitarianism, not only will you be defeated by them, but in time you will love them, and you will agree with them, and you will support them, and you will actively join them.  And you will not disagree.  That is what we are in the midst of seeing. …

 

 

“For a fair number of people in what’s supposed to be a democracy, ‘winning’ in any normal political sense simply isn’t enough. They are not really trying to capture something as pedestrian as political equality, nor are they satisfied if they get it.” They claim that’s what they’re about.  Equality.  They’re not about equality at all.  They’re about total domination.

 

 

… That’s why the Republicans have fallen into a huge trap on all of this.  Bipartisanship.  They are not bipartisan.  Somebody give me an example of left-wing bipartisanship.  They don’t even define it the way we do.  Bipartisanship, as they define it, as in we cave on our core beliefs and agree with them.  That is bipartisanship.  There is no compromise.

 

 

So, folks, it’s an all-out assault on the criminal justice system and an attempt, which will not stop, to have the entire Grand Jury system found corrupt, and if they could get rid of it. And why?  Because they didn’t get the result.  They did not prevail.  There are people who disagree with them, and that will not be tolerated.  People who disagree with them, whether they are high judges, whether they are prosecutors, whether they are average ordinary every day citizens, it will not be tolerated.

 

 

“A new document reveals that the Department of Justice, the IRS, and the FBI colluded to prosecute Barack Obama opponents.”  This is from Judicial Watch.  Involves Lois Lerner.  Just the headlines, folks: “New Docs Reveal DOJ, IRS, and FBI Colluding to Prosecute Obama Opponents.” These are the 501(c)(3)s that the conservative fundraising group is asking for tax-exempt status.  Judicial Watch has found evidence that the DOJ, the IRS, the FBI were colluding to prosecute them out of existence.

A hard rain is going to fall


road-2-wwiii

Undoubtedly the gloom and doom prediction of an imminent explosion of WWIII (or WWIV – depending on who you read) is about to bust out. I came across a Victor Davis Hanson essay on the subject that the Jewish World Review correctly calls thought provoking.

 

JRH 9/22/16

Please Support NCCR

*******************

A hard rain is going to fall

By Victor Davis Hanson

Sept. 22, 2016

Jewish World Review

 

This summer, President Obama was often golfing. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were promising to let the world be. The end of summer seemed sleepy, the world relatively calm.

 

The summer of 1914 in Europe also seemed quiet. But on July 28, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated in Sarajevo by Gavrilo Princip with help from his accomplices, fellow Serbian separatists. That isolated act sparked World War I.

 

In the summer of 1939, most observers thought Adolf Hitler was finally through with his serial bullying. Appeasement supposedly had satiated his once enormous territorial appetites. But on Sept. 1, Nazi Germany unexpectedly invaded Poland and touched off World War II, which consumed some 60 million lives.

 

Wars often seem to come out of nowhere, as unlikely events ignite long-simmering disputes into global conflagrations.

 

The instigators often are weaker attackers who foolishly assume that more powerful nations wish peace at any cost, and so will not react to opportunistic aggression.

 

Unfortunately, our late-summer calm of 2016 has masked a lot of festering tensions that are now coming to a head — largely due to disengagement by a supposedly tired United States.

 

In contrast, war, unlike individual states, does not sleep.

 

Russia has been massing troops on its border with Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin apparently believes that Europe is in utter disarray and assumes that President Obama remains most interested in apologizing to foreigners for the past evils of the United States. Putin is wagering that no tired Western power could or would stop his reabsorption of Ukraine — or the Baltic states next. Who in hip Amsterdam cares what happens to faraway Kiev?

 

Iran swapped American hostages for cash. An Iranian missile narrowly missed a U.S. aircraft carrier not long ago. Iranians hijacked an American boat and buzzed our warships in the Persian Gulf. There are frequent promises from Tehran to destroy either Israel, America or both. So much for the peace dividend of the “Iran deal.”

 

North Korea is more than just delusional. Recent nuclear tests and missile launches toward Japan suggest that North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un actually believes that he could win a war — and thereby gain even larger concessions from the West and from his Asian neighbors.

 

Radical Islamists likewise seem emboldened to try more attacks on the premise that Western nations will hardly respond with overwhelming power. The past weekend brought pipe bombings in Manhattan and New Jersey as well as a mass stabbing in a Minnesota mall — and American frustration.

 

Europe and the United States have been bewildered by huge numbers of largely young male migrants from the war-torn Middle East. Political correctness has paralyzed Western leaders from even articulating the threat, much less replying to it.

 

Instead, the American government appears more concerned with shutting down the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, ensuring that no administration official utters the words “Islamic terror,” and issuing warnings to Americans not to lash out due to their supposedly innate prejudices.

 

Aggressors are also encouraged by vast cutbacks in the U.S. defense budget. The lame-duck Obama presidency, lead-from-behind policies and a culturally and racially divided America reflect voter weariness with overseas commitments.

 

It would be a mistake to assume that war is impossible because it logically benefits no one, or is outdated in our sophisticated 21st century, or would be insane in a world of nuclear weapons.

 

Human nature is unchanging and remains irrational. Evil is eternal. Unfortunately, appeasement is often seen by thugs not as magnanimity to be reciprocated but as timidity to be exploited.

 

Someone soon will have to tell the North Koreans that a stable world order cannot endure its frequent missile launches and nuclear detonations.

 

Someone could remind Putin that the former Soviet republics have a right to self-determination.

 

Someone might inform the Chinese that no one can plop down artificial islands and military bases to control commercial sea lanes.

 

Someone might make it clear to radical Islamic terrorists that there is a limit to Western patience with their chronic bombing, murdering and destruction.

 

The problem is that there is no other “someone” (especially not the United Nations or the European Union) with the requisite power and authority except the United States. But for a long time America has done more than its fair share of international policing — and its people are tired of costly dragon-slaying abroad.

 

The result is that at this late date, the tough medicine of restoring long-term deterrence is as almost as dangerous as the disease of continual short-term appeasement.

 

Obama apparently assumes he can leave office as a peacemaker before his appeased chickens come home to roost in violent fashion. He has assured us that the world has never been calmer and quieter.

 

Others said the same thing in the last calm summer weeks of 1914 and 1939.

 

War clouds are gathering. A hard rain is soon going to fall.

In light of the Islamic terrorist bombing in New York and New Jersey, the accurate background audio report behind the Left Stream Media video feeds is one of the best reality commentary contradicting the politically correct crowd – EVER! I have to tell ya, I’ve never been a big fan of any information sourced from any kind of Alex Jones media; NEVERTHELESS, this video is so spot on it should be voiced over live on ALL news networks!

ALSO in light of the Islamic terrorist bombing look at the numerous Islamic terrorist attacks on American soil that Obama has tried to excuse as work-place violence or lone wolf terrorism as if no violence perpetrated by Muslims has nothing to do with Islam. THAT IS MULTICULTURAL LIBERAL HOGWASH!

 

Terrorism on U.S, Soil Since Obama Administration

 

1. LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS (2009)

 

The victims: 1 U.S. soldier killed, 1 injured

The killer: Born Carlos Bledsoe in Tennessee, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad converted to Islam as a teenager. He shot and killed a soldier outside a recruiting center. Reportedly, Muhammad was angry about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and how the United States had treated Muslims.

2. FT. HOOD, TEXAS (2009)

 

The killer: Major Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, opened fire inside the medical center at Ft. Hood. He was reportedly upset about an upcoming deployment to Iraq. Later, in 2014, Hasan petitioned to become a citizen of the Islamic State.

The victims: 3 people were killed, including a young child. More than 100 people were injured, some requiring limb amputations.

The killers: Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were brothers. By all accounts, Dzhokhar was an average American college student before falling under the influence of his older brother, Tamerlan, and becoming radicalized. Tamerlan was shot by police and Dzhokhar was found after a massive manhunt. He was sentenced to death and is currently in prison.

 

4. RICHMOND, CALIFORNIA (2013)

 

The victim: Daniel Stone, a hardware store employee.

The killer: Ali Muhammad Brown, the killer of 4 men in 2 states, is a self-proclaimed ISIS supporter. He was the first person to be charged under New Jersey’s 9/11 terror laws. He explained the killings as retribution for Muslim deaths in the Middle East.

6. MOORE, OKLAHOMA (2014)

 

The victim: Colleen Hufford was decapitated at the food plant where she worked.

The New York-New Jersey Islamic terrorist bombing can be number 11. And number 12 is the Islamic terrorist attack of Somali Muslim who had gained employment as a security guard went around a Minnesota mall asking patrons if they were Muslim with a “no answer” being followed with a knife slash. Here are Ann Corcoran’s (of Refugee Resettlement Watch) thoughts on the Somali jihadist in a Minnesota mall:

 

Update September 20th: Here is a story about his original resettlement, as a child, in Fargo, ND. It is a short drive from Fargo to St. Cloud (I drove it while on my RRW road trip this summer).

 

[Blog Editor: Here’s the John Houk Youtube version of the Valley News Live report from St Cloud Minnesota:

 

VIDEO: Who was Dahir Adan, the man praised as a soldier of the Islam State]

 

 

I guess as time goes on we will hear if he came to the US as a refugee youngster and benefited from the generosity of US and state taxpayers or whether he is a relatively new refugee (the vast majority of the Somalis in the US came in through the Refugee Admissions Program).

 

Only a small fraction of the nearly 200,000 Somalis in the US now came in through other legal means (some came illegally across our southern border).

 

Remember what MN Governor Dayton said last year, don’t like our Somalis get out of Minnesota!

 

It is simply pathetic that a couple of hours ago all of the officials arrayed in a lengthy St. Cloud press conference—the mayor (who has been a vocal advocate for the expanding Somali enclave there), the police, even the FBI couldn’t bring themselves to identify the dead perpetrator, but waited (did they wait on purpose?) to give the ‘Somali community’ time to spin the story.

 

He was a good boy, no violent past, a good student, a college student in St. Cloud. (Maybe even a security guard!) So what! He was first and foremost a Jihadist. And, Obama and his Lefty friends who chalk up ‘violent extremism’ to poverty and lack of opportunity can just shut up! This guy had prospects for a good future and he chose jihad for Allah instead.

 

Here is Michael Leahy at Breibart:

 

The Saint Cloud Times is reporting Dahir Adan, a member of the local Somali Community, was the man who attacked nine people at a local mall Saturday while shouting about “Allah.”

A short time earlier, St. Cloud Somali-American community members identified the deceased suspect as Dahir Adan.

Leaders of the Somali-American community in St. Cloud gathered Sunday with his family and issued a statement of sympathy for the family and the nine victims of the attack.

Community leader Abdul Kulane said as far as the family and community know, the suspect did not have any history of violence. He was known as a smart, accomplished student at Apollo High School. He was a junior at St. Cloud State University, Kulane said. Adan was also working part-time as a private security officer, leaders said.

 

At a press conference on Sunday, St. Cloud, Minnesota city officials refused to release the identity of the man who attacked nine people with a knife in a local mall Saturday night while shouting “Allah.” The attacker was killed by an off-duty police officer from a nearby city who happened to be in the mall at the time.

 

Continue here.

 

And then here Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit has more where we learn that he was originally from Fargo, ND (another major resettlement city not far from St. Cloud) from the Jihadists facebook page. Thank the Lutherans of Minnesota and North Dakota for changing America by changing its people.  (Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is the major federal contractor with subcontractors in READ THE REST (Knife-wielding attacker (who injured 9) in St. Cloud mall was a Somali; By Ann Corcoran; Refugee Resettlement Watch; 9/18/16)

 

Here is the account of former policemen turned firearms training owner Jason Falconer taking down the Islamic terrorist Dahir Adan:

 

Jason Falconer, an off-duty police officer and owner of Tactical Advantage, a firearms training company, was shopping at Macy’s when he saw Adan heading his way. After identifying himself as a law-enforcement officer, Falconer ordered Adan to the ground. David Unze, a reporter for the St. Cloud Times, took it from there:

 

The suspect got down [and] almost immediately … lunged at Falconer with the knife.

Falconer fired once, and the suspect went down. He got up and lunged at Falconer, who shot him again. The suspect then tried again to lunge at Falconer who fired a third shot that killed the suspect.

When the last shot was fired, the suspect was so close to Falconer that Falconer was falling backwards as the suspect came at him. (Minnesota Knife-wielding Attacker Killed by Off-duty Officer; By Bob Adelmann; New American; 9/19/16)

 

Bob Owens writing at Bearing Arms has a decent bio of Jason Falconer and wonders why the MSM fails to point out that Falconer was actually a civilian packing a gun while shopping? The civilian Falconer saved lives with his gun permit to carry a weapon!

 

The Dems, including President Barack Hussein Obama and Crooked Hillary, have gone out of their way to promote bringing in even MORE Muslim refugees from Islamic terrorist infested nations. Sure both the Afghan Islamic bomber Ahmad Khan Rahami and knife wielding Somali born Islamic terrorist came young to the USA and became naturalized citizens, but THE POINT is they both came as refugees or immigrants from Islamic terrorist riddled areas. Were they radicalized to terrorism as kids? It is quite doubtful that was the case. Do they belong to a faith whose earliest beginnings was based on terrorist raids for booty, slaves, sex-slaves and a choice of oppressed 2nd class living, convert or die? THIS IS THE VERY REASON Muslims should be required extra vetting with relation to the probability of assimilation into American culture. NO ASSIMILATION – NO IMMIGRATION!

 

Here is a video graph that one of my friends Jyrki left as a comment to another post that help Americans (and Westerners in general understand having the counter-culture Islam infest our nation or nations:

 

VIDEO: Muslim Demographics

Islam will overwhelm Christendom unless Christians recognize the demographic realities, begin reproducing again, and share the gospel with Muslims.

 

America’s Left went out of its way to vainly attempt dissuade any attempt of blaming Islamic terrorism for terrorist attacks – NYC Mayor de Blasio:

 

The mayor’s statement is absolutely incoherent. It’s “intentional” but not “terrorism.” All right. So this means the bomb in Chelsea was not an accident, but was put there deliberately in order to kill and maim. That seems to be the very definition of terrorism, but the mayor, a good friend of Islamic supremacists such as Linda Sarsour, assures us it is not terrorism.

 

What on earth could he mean? Remember that de Blasio is indefatigably committed to the mainstream dogma that Islamic jihad terrorism has nothing to do with Islam, and indeed, that “Islam” and “jihad” must never be mentioned in connection with terrorism. He won’t mention Islamic jihadis, but by saying that there is no connection to “terrorism” in this bombing, he is strongly implying that it was not committed by Muslims. His politically correct speech restrictions make it impossible for him to speak clearly and coherently about this, and so he entangles himself in a contradiction. Any other kind of terrorist could have planted this bomb, and it was certainly terrorism, but as de Blasio knows that most people (understandably) connect terrorism with Islam and Muslims, but can’t say that without violating his PC speech code, and was anxious above all to exonerate Islam, he said that the bombing was “intentional” but not “terrorism.” READ THE REST (NYC: IED explosion wounds 29, Muslims cheer on Twitter, de Blasio says “intentional,” but not “terrorism”; By  ROBERT SPENCER; Jihad Watch; 9/18/16 7:19 AM)

 

The Dailey Wire is telling us today (9/20/16) that de Blasio wants Americans to look the other way because he is promoting with his Leftist-in-Chief and Crooked Hillary that even more of an influx Muslim refugees should be in the USA!

 

Obama’s Tuesday UN speech was essentially to accept globalism over national sovereignty as the norm spouting skewed factoids as usual to back up his Left Wing globalization message. I am going to cherry pick BHO’s globalist notions in regard to bringing counter-culture Muslims into the West and into the USA in particular (Yes Leftists, I used the phrase “cherry pick”. Get over it):

 

 

And as these real problems have been neglected, alternative visions of the world have pressed forward both in the wealthiest countries and in the poorest: Religious fundamentalism; the politics of ethnicity, or tribe, or sect; aggressive nationalism; a crude populism — sometimes from the far left, but more often from the far right — which seeks to restore what they believe was a better, simpler age free of outside contamination.

 

We cannot dismiss these visions. They are powerful. They reflect dissatisfaction among too many of our citizens. I do not believe those visions can deliver security or prosperity over the long term, but I do believe that these visions fail to recognize, at a very basic level, our common humanity. Moreover, I believe that the acceleration of travel and technology and telecommunications — together with a global economy that depends on a global supply chain — makes it self-defeating ultimately for those who seek to reverse this progress. Today, a nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself.

 

So the answer cannot be a simple rejection of global integration. Instead, we must work together to make sure the benefits of such integration are broadly shared, and that the disruptions — economic, political, and cultural — that are caused by integration are squarely addressed. 

 

 

… It does not require succumbing to a soulless capitalism that benefits only the few, but rather recognizes that economies are more successful when we close the gap between rich and poor, and growth is broadly based. And that means respecting the rights of workers so they can organize into independent unions and earn a living wage. It means investing in our people — their skills, their education, their capacity to take an idea and turn it into a business. It means strengthening the safety net that protects our people from hardship and allows them to take more risks — to look for a new job, or start a new venture.

 

[Blog Editor: Here comes the egregious Leftist lie based on cooked statistics]

 

These are the policies that I’ve pursued here in the United States, and with clear results. American businesses have created now 15 million new jobs. After the recession, the top one percent of Americans were capturing more than 90 percent of income growth. But today, that’s down to about half. Last year, poverty in this country fell at the fastest rate in nearly 50 years. And with further investment in infrastructure and early childhood education and basic research,

 

So just as I’ve pursued these measures here at home, so has the United States worked with many nations to curb the excesses of capitalism — not to punish wealth, but to prevent repeated crises that can destroy it. That’s why we’ve worked with other nations to create higher and clearer standards for banking and taxation — because a society that asks less of oligarchs than ordinary citizens will rot from within.   [Blog Editor: Like secretively laundering $1.7 billion in American money into foreign European currency and sending it in an unmarked cargo jet to Iran???] That’s why we’ve pushed for transparency and cooperation in rooting out corruption, and tracking illicit dollars, because markets create more jobs when they’re fueled by hard work, and not the capacity to extort a bribe. That’s why we’ve worked to reach trade agreements that raise labor standards and raise environmental standards, as we’ve done with the Trans-Pacific Partnership, so that the benefits are more broadly shared. [Blog Editor: Does this transparency and fighting corruption crap sound just a tad bit twisted to anyone else???]

 

 

[Blog Editor: Can you catch the basic Marxism phrase –] It turns out building accountable institutions is hard work — the work of generations. The gains are often fragile. Sometimes we take one step forward and then two steps back. [Blog Editor: Then comes the criticism of culture based on national sovereignty] In countries held together by borders drawn by colonial powers, with ethnic enclaves and tribal divisions, politics and elections can sometimes appear to be a zero-sum game. 

 

 

[Blog Editor: BHO implies that the “strongman” state is the institution of the Conservative Right exonerating the agenda of authoritarian global Left] Without this evolution, ultimately expectations of people will not be met; suppression and stagnation will set in. And history shows that strongmen are then left with two paths — permanent crackdown, which sparks strife at home, or scapegoating enemies abroad, which can lead to war.

 

[Blog Editor: Now comes another lie from BHO – friend to Marxist terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn (See Also HERE) and admirer of Marxist Saul Alinsky and Frank Marshall Davis]

 

Now, I will admit, my belief that governments serve the individual, and not the other way around, is shaped by America’s story. Our nation began with a promise of freedom that applied only to the few. But because of our democratic Constitution, because of our Bill of Rights, because of our ideals, ordinary people were able to organize, and march, and protest, and ultimately, those ideals won out —

 

[Blog Editor: After the stealth lying of being an American exceptionalist believing in the American Revolutionary principles of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness with guaranteed Rights from Nature’s God comes the globalist lie of accepting counter-culture refugees because that’s just who we are – unless you are a Leftist defined racist, xenophobe, culture superiority nationalist (as in truth, justice and the American Way)]

 

This leads me to the third thing we need to do: We must reject any forms of fundamentalism, or racism, or a belief in ethnic superiority that makes our traditional identities irreconcilable with modernity. Instead we need to embrace the tolerance that results from respect of all human beings.

 

It’s a truism that global integration has led to a collision of cultures; trade, migration, the Internet, all these things can challenge and unsettle our most cherished identities. … And in Europe and the United States, you see people wrestle with concerns about immigration and changing demographics, and suggesting that somehow people who look different are corrupting the character of our countries.

 

[Blog Editor: Do you see Obama’s twisted lie? Americans don’t view people who look different as corrupting the character of our nation, RATHER sane Americans see that Islam corrupts every single principle that our Founding Fathers set in stone via our Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights that Obama early pretended an affinity toward!]

 

Now, there’s no easy answer for resolving all these social forces, and we must respect the meaning that people draw from their own traditions — from their religion, from their ethnicity, from their sense of nationhood. But I do not believe progress is possible if our desire to preserve our identities gives way to an impulse to dehumanize or dominate another group. If our religion leads us to persecute those of another faith, if we jail or beat people who are gay, if our traditions lead us to prevent girls from going to school, if we discriminate on the basis of race or tribe or ethnicity, then the fragile bonds of civilization will fray. The world is too small, we are too packed together, for us to be able to resort to those old ways of thinking.

 

[Blog Editor: Here President is absolutely correct as to violence and persecution against those who believe or live differently. HOWEVER, Obama misses the point of assimilation! All those who disagree on politics, faith, lack of faith, lifestyle and etc. in American assimilation agree on one thing; viz., that we agree to disagree in assimilation. If your politics, race, religion and etc. cannot agree to disagree; then hello, YOU cannot be an American and it is time for you to LEAVE!]

 

 

And there is a military component to that. It means being united and relentless in destroying networks like ISIL, which show no respect for human life. But it also means that in a place like Syria, where there’s no ultimate military victory to be won, we’re going to have to pursue the hard work of diplomacy that aims to stop the violence, and deliver aid to those in need, and support those who pursue a political settlement and can see those who are not like themselves as worthy of dignity and respect.

 

[Blog Editor: I don’t have a problem with Obama’s thoughts about the Middle Eastern Muslims and “ISIL” above; however, if Obama’s concept of diplomacy means repatriating Muslims who have been taught from the cradle to the grave to hate Americans and Jews, then the diplomacy is best resolved in the Middle East and NOT on American soil.]

 

 

And what is true in the Middle East is true for all of us. Surely, religious traditions can be honored and upheld while teaching young people science and math, rather than intolerance. Surely, we can sustain our unique traditions while giving women their full and rightful role in the politics and economics of a nation. Surely, we can rally our nations to solidarity while recognizing equal treatment for all communities — whether it’s a religious minority in Myanmar, or an ethnic minority in Burundi, or a racial minority right here in the United States.  [Blog Editor: In the case of U.S. Americans tolerance is only valid in the case of melting pot assimilation as in E Pluribus Unum – Out of Many, One. Until that tradition is respected you are not welcome here. Does E Pluribus Unum hold in Israel as Obama suggests at the UN?]And surely, Israelis and Palestinians will be better off if Palestinians reject incitement and recognize the legitimacy of Israel, but Israel recognizes that it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land. 

 

Blog Editor: This is where the American Left, Obama and European Multiculturalists simply don’t get it! The land that is claimed to be occupied is NOT occupied. It is Israel’s land not only by 20th century treaties originally agreed to by early Arab leaders not infected with Nazi inspired Arab Nationalism that bred hatred of Jews, but also by the Word of God recognized as Divine by Observant Jews and devoted Christians. Present day Arabs that call themselves Palestinians are more so migrants than the Jews that were booted out of their homeland by conquering Romans wearied by continuous Jewish attempts at independence and later by intolerant Jew-hating Muslims that only tolerated 2nd class conquered Jewish dhimmis living in Muslim dominated cultures. So NO, Israelis shouldn’t have to leave their own land.]

 

 

My own family is a made up of the flesh and blood and traditions and cultures and faiths from a lot of different parts of the world — just as America has been built by immigrants from every shore. And in my own life, in this country, and as President, I have learned that our identities do not have to be defined by putting someone else down, but can be enhanced by lifting somebody else up. They don’t have to be defined in opposition to others, but rather by a belief in liberty and equality and justice and fairness.

 

[Blog Editor: The above paragraph demonstrates that Obama; ergo Crooked Hillary and the Dems; have rejected one of America’s mottos of E Pluribus Unum and believes in the Leftist Multiculturalist paradigm of all divergent cultures can differ and stand in one nation – IT’S IMPOSSIBLE!]

 

 

This is what I believe: that all of us can be co-workers with God. And our leadership, and our governments, and this United Nations should reflect this irreducible truth.

 

[Blog Editor: When Obama says, “This is I believe,” and uses the word “God,” Americans have to wonder the nature of the god he believes in considering congregating under the Black Liberation Theology Jeremiah Wright for 20 years, growing up in Indonesia under a Muslim step-father while attending Muslim religious education AND being mentored by avowed Communist Frank Marshall Davis who was also a pornographer as in a godless person.]

 

READ ENTIRETY – Blog Editor Commentary in bold text (What you missed from Barack Obama’s speech while everyone was talking about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce; By Rob Crilly; Independent; 9/20/16 18:07 – London)

 

As usual when it comes to immigration and/or Islam the Dems lie or twist the facts to transform America into a Leftist utopia that will end the Original Intent of the Founding Fathers’ vision for a unique Republic where government was by the People and Civil Rights encoded into the stone of the U.S. Constitution. The Living Constitution of American Leftists renders our Constitution unrecognizable.

Obama Admin ‘Laundered’ U.S. Cash to Iran …


bho-launders-billions-to-iran-toon

Does anyone wonder WHY in the world would President Barack Hussein Obama, went to such great lengths to cover-up what at first thought to be part of the Iran nuke deal, to the tune of nearly a half billion DOLLARS to Iran in foreign currency? That ½ BILLION now pretty much thought to be a ransom payment for release of dual American-Iran citizens.

 

NOW AGAIN! It has been discovered that ½ BILLION was really $$$$1.7 BILLION!

 

The House Intelligence Committee suspects all this cash was release illegally in an Obama money laundering scheme to avoid legal restrictions imposed by Congress. AGAIN the rest of the billions of dollars was wired to European banks then transferred into foreign currency and sent by that discovered clandestine unmarked cargo jet to Iran.

 

How has Obama gotten away with such overt illegalities without a hint of impeachment proceedings!? Talk about a corrupt government. The Executive Branch actively tries to deceive the Legislative Branch with a packed Leftist Judicial Branch undoubtedly waiting in the wings to claim nothing to see here – move along.

 

Here’s the Washington Free Beacon Story on Obama’s money laundering scheme to one of America’s foreign enemies in Iran.

Obama Admin ‘Laundered’ U.S. Cash to Iran Via N.Y. Fed, Euro Banks

Congressman: ‘Administration laundered this money in order to circumvent U.S. law’

 

By Adam Kredo

September 19, 2016 5:00 am

Washington Free Beacon

 

A member of the House Intelligence Committee is accusing the Obama administration of laundering some $1.7 billion in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Iran through a complicated network that included the New York Federal Reserve and several European banks, according to conversations with sources and new information obtained by the lawmaker and viewed by the Washington Free Beacon.

 

New disclosures made by the Treasury Department to Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.), a House Intelligence Committee member, show that an initial $400 million cash payment to Iran was wired to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) and then converted from U.S. dollars into Swiss francs and moved to an account at the Swiss National Bank, according to a copy of communication obtained exclusively by the Free Beacon.

 

Once the money was transferred to the Swiss Bank, the “FRBNY withdrew the funds from its account as Swiss franc banknotes and the U.S. Government physically transported them to Geneva” before personally overseeing the handover to an agent of Iran’s central bank, according to the documents.

 

These disclosures shine new light on how the Obama administration moved millions of dollars from U.S. accounts to European banks in order to facilitate three separate cash payments to Iran totaling $1.7 billion.

 

The latest information is adding fuel to accusations the Obama administration arranged the payment in this fashion to skirt U.S. sanctions laws and give Iran the money for the release of U.S. hostages, in what many have called a ransom.

 

Congress has been investigating the circumstances surrounding the payment for months and said the administration is blocking certain requests for more detailed information about the cash transaction with Iran.

 

“By withholding critical details and stonewalling congressional inquiries, President Obama seems to be hiding whether or not he and others broke U.S. law by sending $1.7 billion in cash to Iran,” Pompeo told the Free Beacon. “But Americans can plainly see that the Obama administration laundered this money in order to circumvent U.S. law and appease the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

 

As new details emerge, congressional critics such as Pompeo and Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) are beginning to suspect the U.S. government laundered the money in order to provide Tehran with immediate access.

 

“Think about this timeline: the U.S. withdraws $400 million in cash from the Swiss National Bank and then physically transports it to another city to hand-off to Iranian officials—three days before Iran releases four American hostages,” Pompeo said. “But it gets worse: less than a week after this, the U.S. again sends hordes of cash to Iran.  As we speak, Iran is still holding three more Americans hostage and I fear what precedent this administration has set.”

 

The initial $400 million payment to Iran was initiated on Jan. 14, 2016, according to information sent by the Treasury Department to Pompeo.

 

“For the first settlement payment in January, Treasury assisted the Defense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS) in crafting a wire instruction to transfer the $400 million in principal from the Iran FMS [Foreign Military Sales program] account on January 14, 2016,” the document states.

 

“Treasury worked with DFAS and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY), which was acting as Treasury’s financial agent, so that the funds were converted from dollars to Swiss francs and credited to a FRBNY account at the Swiss National Bank (SNB), which is the central bank of the Switzerland [sic],” it adds.

 

The U.S. hostages were released shortly after Iran received this initial cash payment.

 

The additional $1.3 billion cash payment was facilitated by the Dutch Central Bank, which helped the United States transfer the money to an account before it was converted into euros.

 

The Dutch Bank “then disbursed the funds as euro banknotes in the Netherlands to an official from the Central Bank of Iran.”

 

The payment was broken down into two separate transactions that occurred on Jan. 22 and Feb. 5.

 

Senior administration officials maintain that the transaction was completely legal and not paid out as part of a ransom to Iran. These officials have said that cash was the “most reliable” method to ensure Iran received immediate access to the funds, as its banking system is still under sanctions.

 

Officials from the Treasury and Justice Departments would not respond to Free Beacon requests for comment about the exact type of legal approval given prior to the cash payment.

 

One congressional adviser who works closely on the Iran issue told the Free Beacon that the Obama administration appears to have involved multiple branches of the government in order to help conceal the cash payment to Iran.

 

“It looks as if the White House made just about every corner of the executive branch complicit in covering up the extent of its payments to Iran,” the source said. “Congress was already aggressively looking into payments involving the State, Treasury, and Energy Departments. Now it’s the Justice Department, too. We already know that top officials from Justice objected strongly to the ransom deal, but were overruled. Congress wants to know what happened and why.”

 

A senior congressional aide familiar with investigations regarding the matter told the Free Beacon that the administration continues to hide information from lawmakers about the cash payment.

 

“The American public and Members of Congress understand psychology—if the administration is hiding something, there is a reason.  President Obama, Secretary Kerry and others would like to pretend that their months of evasiveness and stonewalling regarding Iran are normal, but their behavior indicates otherwise” the source said. “Refusing to answer basic questions about millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars paid to the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism only invites more questions.”

 

Recent reports have raised questions about how much of this money may be spent to fund Iran’s international terror operations and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

 

Lawmakers examining who in Iran assumed control of the money have told the Free Beacon that at least part of the cash was likely spent to fund the IRGC’s operations.

Neocons and Templars

On September 11 commenter Jeremy Auldaney asked a couple of question that had little to do with the post entitled “Donald Trump 10 PT Immigration Speech from Phoenix” at my NCCR Blog (I posted the same title at two other blogs). The questions had to do with the full name of the NCCR Blog and my use of the symbolism of a Templar Crusading Knight.

 

NCCR is the acronym for the NeoConservative Christian Right. Since Neocons are definitely on everyone’s vilification list these days I thought I’d state my reasoning in short fashion. I could have embellished a bit more but the short answer is good for now. Perhaps a long answer will be forth coming when the political correct crowd is willing to address the depravity of Muhammad’s Islam which is the same Islam that the blind West chooses to define as “Radical” Islam as if a “Moderate” Islam follows a different prophet today.

 

I provide the same short answer in the use of Templar Crusader symbolism as well. Again further embellishment would be beneficial; however, both expansive answers probably would take up the time of a small book or at least several long blog posts. For now, yawl will have to live with the short answers.

 

One thing I feel compelled to address though pertaining to Templar symbolism is to my Jewish readers. Some of you who may not know your Crusader history well may not realize that when the first Crusaders conquered Jerusalem, they slaughtered not only Muslim resisters but also Jewish inhabitants which had become quite substantial by medieval times. Some chroniclers of the period say the blood flowed on the streets that was ankle deep. This included Jews who had congregated in their Synagogues hoping for refuge from the Crusader conquerors. There was no Christian mercy for the Jews in Jerusalem. Jews that know their history are a bit peeved at my use of Templar symbolism because them it is just another atrocity of Christian Antisemitism that was so very present in medieval days (and unfortunately flowing through history even to this present day to one degree or another).

 

I indeed do feel shame for that Crusader Antisemitism; nevertheless, it was the Crusader mentality that began a longtime need reversal Muslim aggression in which the last vestige a Muslim empire was destroyed at the end of WWI and the dividing up of old Ottoman Turk holdings in the Middle East into independent Arab Muslim nations and the beginning to the return of Jews to their ancient homeland – ISRAEL. It is the Crusader mentality needed today to thwart the expansion of Islamic terrorism.

 

From this point I will poise the two questions Jeremy Auldaney poised followed by my answers on the NCCR Blog.

I am puzzled by your name of NeoConservative. It is the NeoConservatives among the Republicans that are supporting the Liberal Conspiracy to set up a world government under Marxism.

Jeremy you are misinformed probably by Jew-haters and/or Leftists. Neocons are largely former Marxists or ex-Dems that woke up to the dangers of a Leftist agenda to the Rights and Privileges guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Prior to the al Qaeda attack on 911 Neocons favored bringing democratic principles to intolerant Muslim nations ruled by oppression. The concept was sound, but the application to a Muslim society proved unworkable. Most Neocons recognize that reality. But Leftist propaganda has taken the failure of Neocon democratization to blame the former Lefties for war embroilments rather than recognize that Neocons had a plan better than sitting on their butts waiting for more terrorism on American soil. Obama Leftists went around the world apologizing for American ideals and blaming Neocons for American failures largely due to the American Left intransience on submission to Multiculturalism as the save-all for global peace. MULTICULTURALISM has proven to be a worse failure than Neocon democratization because inaction has made Islamic terrorism worse under Obama. At least Neocons subdued radicals rather allow than allow radicals to call the shots on a death agenda.

 

Now it is incumbent for Neocons and Conservatives to develop a better strategy for a subduing Islamic terrorism. That better strategy probably includes an agenda that politically correct Multiculturalists would find abhorrent because the rules of engagement would be much more brutal than GW Bush and Obama have utilized to date.

Also I notice you use a picture of a Knights Templar. This is the secret society that is behind the Liberal Conspiracy Including the Masons and Jesuits.

Actually my usage of Templar symbolism has little to do with the cultic aspects of Templar evolution leading to their final demise in subterfuge and betrayal AND more to do with the original call of the Crusades when Europeans became fed up with Muslim raids and military expeditions carving up Christian lands.

 

Persecution of Christian Pilgrims butchered or enslave on their way to medieval Jerusalem was the excuse (real or perceived) of a confrontation a long time in coming. After all the Middle East was a majority Christian land LONG BEFORE Muslim invaders conquered and oppressed the Christians to convert to Islam over a 2 or 3 centuries time until Islam became the dominant religion. Oppression was the conversion tactic not a free-will choice.

 

TODAY the world needs a Templar Crusader rules of engagement minus the Antisemitic hate to overcome Muslim oppression even if so-called innocent civilians are harmed by the rules of engagement. The Allies were not concerned about civilian casualties in a win at all costs war against Nazis and Imperial Japanese and neither should we be in this current threat to Western Society.
