  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

al Qaida and WMDs

Posted by rightwinger on January 23, 2009

The threat from al Qaida is still very real.  Just because our new President doesn’t talk about the War on Terror, it still exists.  You may have heard about al Qaida members dieing of the bubonic plague.  My first thought was they must be living in bad conditions.  Well no, this is not just the bubonic plague.  This was the bubonic plague in a weaponized state.  This was a test of the bubonic plague in a weaponized form that went terribly wrong.  Not that you will hear about this from the Obama administration because they want to placate the left who thinks the War on Terror was some made up War by Bush.  Sorry folks there is nothing made up about the War on Terror which should actually be called the War on Radical Islam.

For those who think the global war on terror is just a bad memory from the Bush administration, you might be surprised to discover it isn’t. The threat is real — even more so, given that so many people are convinced it no longer exists.

An overlooked news item out of Algeria puts to rest that notion. The report says that an al-Qaida affiliate there abruptly closed a mountain training base after an experiment with biological weapons went wrong.

A U.S. intelligence official, speaking on condition he not be named, confirmed the accident that led to a shutdown of the training facility in Tizi Ouzou, a province in eastern Algeria.

He said the U.S. intercepted desperate communications between the group and al-Qaida leaders in Pakistan’s tribal region earlier this month suggesting that the camp had been quickly abandoned.

A report by the Sun, a British tabloid, said at least 40 operatives belonging to al-Qaida in the Land of the Maghreb (AQLIM), an al-Qaida affiliate in North Africa, were killed in a training accident.

From the sound of it, they were likely killed by a strain of the bubonic plague — the deadly rat-borne bacterial disease that ravaged much of the world in the 13th and 14th century, wiping out fully a third of Europe’s population. An airborne version, pneumonic plague, is equally deadly.

The details are horrific. The Algerian victims were said to be afflicted with horrible boils in different parts of their bodies, dying in excruciating pain after just a few hours. It’s an awful way to die.

Since AQLIM boasts of 1,000 members in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Nigeria, the loss of 40 terrorists will barely scratch the surface of their membership.

What worries us is that if the “accident” was part of a wider program to create a deadly bioweapon to be used against civilians — possibly in the U.S. or Europe — then we are in serious danger.

This while Dana Priest of the Washington Post declares that Obama has ended the War on Terror.  Oh Really???  Now, Dana can you please notify al Qaida who still aims to kill Americans about this.  Because al Qaida’s pursuit of the destruction of the West and instituting Sharia law has not changed.

With the stroke of his pen, he effectively declared an end to the “war on terror,” as President George W. Bush had defined it, signaling to the world that the reach of the U.S. government in battling its enemies will not be limitless.

While Obama says he has no plans to diminish counterterrorism operations abroad, the notion that a president can circumvent long-standing U.S. laws simply by declaring war was halted by executive order in the Oval Office.

Key components of the secret structure developed under Bush are being swept away: The military’s Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, facility, where the rights of habeas corpus and due process had been denied detainees, will close, and the CIA is now prohibited from maintaining its own overseas prisons. And in a broad swipe at the Bush administration’s lawyers, Obama nullified every legal order and opinion on interrogations issued by any lawyer in the executive branch after Sept. 11, 2001.

I’d like to know what long standing US laws have been violated conidering the eleventh amendment of the US Constitution specifically states that foreign nationals have no rights under the US Constitution.

The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State.

I would also like to point out that there is precedence under FDR, yes FDR for US citizens and foreign nationals involved with a terrorist attack on US soil to be tried under the UCMJ.

Should a terrorist have more constitutional rights than a person in the military? If a military person commits a crime, they are tried under the UCMJ. So should a terrorist have more rights than our own military? There is precedence for Guantanimo Bay and terrorists being tried under the UCMJ. Read this Wall Street Journal article which states the following:

“There is ample constitutional precedent to support the detention of a suspected al Qaeda agent, even an American citizen, who plans to carry out terrorist attacks on our soil. During World War II, eight Nazi saboteurs secretly landed in New York to attack factories and plants. Two of them were American citizens.

After their capture, FDR sent them to military detention, where they were tried and most of them executed. In Ex Parte Quirin, the Supreme Court upheld the detention and trial by military authorities of American citizens who “associate” with “the military arm of the enemy” and “enter this country bent on hostile acts.” If FDR were president today, Padilla might have fared far worse than he has.”

Update: Day 1 Obama Closes Gitmo

Posted by rightwinger on January 21, 2009

First day in office, Obama signs an executive order to close Gitmo within a year.  In addition, all Gitmo trials have been halted including Khalid Sheik Muhammeds hearing set for today.  Khalid is the mastermind of the planes operation of the 2001 World Trade Center attacks.  

In one of his first acts in office President Obama has ordered the U.S. government to suspend prosecutions of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay for 120 days, military officials said Tuesday.

Papers filed at the U.S. prison camp said the request is made “in the interest of justice and at the direction of the president of the United States.” It seeks a delay in proceedings until May 20.

“The judges will receive the requests and review them, and we anticipate a ruling soon,” said Cmdr. Jeffrey Gordon, a Defense Department spokesman.

Tuesday’s directive was issued verbally through Defense Secretary Bob Gates, according to a military official.

Obama had vowed to close the naval prison at the U.S. base. While Obama’s order does not go that far, it will stop the prosecutions of 21 detainees currently facing war crimes charges.

Many Gitmo detainees return to the battlefield to kill Americans.  Obama is bringing us real change.  After showing this type of appreasement, the Islamic terrorists will see us as weak.  Don’t worry this is just the beginning.  Negotiations with Hamas and Iran are next.  Gitmo is just one of the measures that President Bush took to keep us safe.  Gitmo was created for a reason – to keep Americans SAFE!!!  There is precedence for terrorists to not have rights under the Constitution.  In fact they don’t have rights under the Constitution according to the Constitution because they are foreign nationals.

The Eleventh Amendment states:

The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State.

Should a terrorist have more constitutional rights than a person in the military? If a military person commits a crime, they are tried under the UCMJ. So should a terrorist have more rights than our own military? There is precedence for Guantanimo Bay and terrorists being tried under the UCMJ. Read this Wall Street Journal article which states the following:

“There is ample constitutional precedent to support the detention of a suspected al Qaeda agent, even an American citizen, who plans to carry out terrorist attacks on our soil. During World War II, eight Nazi saboteurs secretly landed in New York to attack factories and plants. Two of them were American citizens.

After their capture, FDR sent them to military detention, where they were tried and most of them executed.

Investor’s Business Daily had a great article on this:

On Jan. 20, 1981, Ronald Reagan welcomed the return of American hostages in victory. On Jan. 20, 2009, Barack Obama will welcome the closing of Guantanamo in appeasement. Yes, change has come.

For anti-war liberals, closing the prisoner of war camp at Guantanamo has long been a cause celebre, one the president-elect warmly embraced.

On ABC’s “This Week,” he gave supporters pause when he suggested actually closing the facility within his first 100 days would be a “challenge.” At least one Obama transition team adviser reassured them on Monday not to worry.

An executive order to close the camp could be issued as early as Inauguration Day. The pathway to trials in American courts with American lawyers and American rights would be set for those jihadists captured on the battlefield trying to kill Americans.

One of the problems is exactly where to relocate the remaining 248 prisoners. Few places are standing in line for the privilege. Maybe ACORN could use a few more volunteers.

This moment stands in stark contrast to the day in 1981 when President Reagan took the oath of office as American hostages were winging their way back to freedom after 444 days of captivity in a Tehran prison. The mullahs set them free rather than deal with a resolute new commander in chief, and in the knowledge they wouldn’t have Jimmy Carter to kick around anymore.

Now it is we who are capitulating.  Last May, the Defense Department said at least 36 former Guantanamo detainees are “confirmed or suspected” of having returned to the battlefield. If Obama orders a shift out of Gitmo, you can be sure more terrorists will return to the front.Among those previously released are Abdullah Salim Ali al-Ajmi, who was first detained in Afghanistan and spent three years at Gitmo before being released in 2005. Al-Ajmi returned to Kuwait and last May went to Iraq to become a suicide bomber. He was successful in his new line of work.

Abdullah Mehsud spent 25 months at Gitmo until his release from such inhuman bondage in March 2004. While out on his own recognizance, he returned to his native South Waziristan where he rebuilt and led a Taliban cadre estimated at 5,000 foot soldiers conducting cross-border raids from Pakistan.

Guantanamo is home to some of the world’s most dangerous Islamists: Chechen jihadists, Afghan mujahedeen and Taliban fighters, and al-Qaida terrorists from across the Middle East and North Africa. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, architect of the USS Cole bombing in 2000, are among the 14 “high value” detainees.

Contrary to the conventional wisdom, Gitmo detainees have not been held without some form of adjudication. All have undergone two levels of review, one to determine their status as enemy combatants, the other an annual review to determine their fitness for release. Obviously this part is not an exact science.

Guantanamo and the incarceration and interrogation of its inhabitants have saved thousands of American lives and untold tragedy. While it has existed, America’s enemies have had a harder time plying their trade.

In his first post-election interview with “60 Minutes” last Nov. 16, Obama said: “I have said repeatedly that I intend to close Guantanamo, and I will follow through on that. I’ve said repeatedly that America doesn’t torture, and I’m going to make sure that we don’t torture.

“Those are part and parcel of an effort to regain America’s moral stature in the world.”

We are more concerned with guaranteeing America’s survival.

Excerpts from The One’s Speech

Posted by rightwinger on January 21, 2009

I am proud that we have the first black president, but that’s about where it ends for me.  It is because of principle and policy nothing else.  I don’t want the socialist agenda that BHO has planned to come to fruition.  I’m not falling for the Obama mania.  I see clearly what BHO wants to accomplish starting with his Senate bill 2433.  He made reference to this in his inaugural speech.

Principles are the same period. Principles are the same regardless of our circumstances. For example, supply and demand affects prices period. Big government spending is bad, not good. Roosevelt actually made the depression worse and last longer because of his New Deal.  Now The One wants us to think old arguments don’t work?  A shift has occurred, so what we think is no longer correct.  He is basing his economic stimulus on Roosevelt’s failed New Deal.  Talk about old ideas.  What is new about his economic stimulus plan?  Its back to the 1930’s courtesy of BHO.

What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them _ that the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long no longer apply. The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works _ whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified. Where the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. Where the answer is no, programs will end. Those of us who manage the public’s dollars will be held to account _ to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day _ because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.

Now considering that the Economic Crisis fundamentally was caused by the Community Reinvestment Act and the CEO of Fannie Mae cooking the books, how did the market spiral out of control?  The CEO of Fannie Mae made $90 million in 6 years after cooking the books.  He has not been named once by the MSM or Obama.  You see when government steals from the American people, no one cares.  Especially when its Dems protecting Dems.  Big government means more stealing by corrupt officials.  There won’t be any hearings just like there hasn’t been one for Franklin Raines.

Nor is the question before us whether the market is a force for good or ill. Its power to generate wealth and expand freedom is unmatched, but this crisis has reminded us that without a watchful eye, the market can spin out of control _ and that a nation cannot prosper long when it favors only the prosperous. The success of our economy has always depended not just on the size of our gross domestic product, but on the reach of our prosperity; on our ability to extend opportunity to every willing heart _ not out of charity, but because it is the surest route to our common good.

Essentially Guantanimo will be closed and so called torture will not be permitted.  Obama is forgetting that the Constitution does not guarantee rights to foreign nationals.  In fact under Roosevelt terrorists were tried under the UCMJ and given the death sentence.  A lead al Qaeda terrorist and mastermind of the planes operation had to be waterboarded 100 times in 2 weeks before he broke.  Because of this, we have gotten the most information from Khalid Sheik Muhammad about al Qaida and its inner workings.  Don’t worry America the terrorists now know they won’t be tortured and won’t talk.  Forget about stopping the next terrorist attack.  Since the Average American doesn’t know what the US Constitution says and is ill advised on US History, Obama make statements such as this.  Notice how he doesn’t call out the ideology we at war with today.  It is not a War on Terror.  Its is a war on Radical Islam.  Obama cannot state the truth in this matter.  We called out communism and fascism when we were at war with these ideologies.  In a report on defeating al Qaida given to Congress calling out the ideology of radical Islam was described as one part of defeating it.

As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our founding fathers … our found fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience’s sake. And so to all the other peoples and governments who are watching today, from the grandest capitals to the small village where my father was born: know that America is a friend of each nation and every man, woman, and child who seeks a future of peace and dignity, and that we are ready to lead once more.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint. 

He wants to leave Iraq responsibly to its people.  Oh really because when things got tough he wanted to cut and run while leaving Iraq to the terrorists.  Yes Obama will usher in a new era of so called peace while appeasing the terrorists and rogue states.  Believe me there will be another attack on the US and it will be because of Obama’s appeasement and lack of strength.  

We are the keepers of this legacy.  Guided by these principles once more, we can meet those new threats that demand even greater effort _ even greater cooperation and understanding between nations. We will begin to responsibly leave Iraq to its people, and forge a hard-earned peace in Afghanistan. With old friends and former foes, we will work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat, and roll back the specter of a warming planet. We will not apologize for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defense, and for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken; you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you.

For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus _ and non-believers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth; and because we have tasted the bitter swill of civil war and segregation, and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace.

To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect. To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society’s ills on the West _ know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.

The next paragraph is yes all about Senate bill 2433.  Rich nations must share their wealth with poor nations.  AKA more money going to rogue nations and dictators.

To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds. And to those nations like ours that enjoy relative plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to the suffering outside our borders; nor can we consume the world’s resources without regard to effect. For the world has changed, and we must change with it.

This ending is nice, but its sad that the freedoms that our forefathers fought and died for – smaller government and lower taxes – will be a faint memory once Obama has instituted his bigger government and redistribution plans.

So let us mark this day with remembrance, of who we are and how far we have traveled. In the year of America’s birth, in the coldest of months, a small band of patriots huddled by dying campfires on the shores of an icy river. The capital was abandoned. The enemy was advancing. The snow was stained with blood. At a moment when the outcome of our revolution was most in doubt, the father of our nation ordered these words be read to the people:

“Let it be told to the future world … that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive…that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet (it).”

America, in the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words. With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children’s children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God’s grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations.

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the United States of America.

What Islam is Not

Posted by rightwinger on January 16, 2009

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Americans need to wake up and understand that Radical Islam is a threat to our very existence.  We can never allow Sharia law or Islamic ghettos where Muslims only have their schools and children are unable to socialize with children of other beliefs.  This is wrong any way you look at it.  Political correctness and appeasement will not fix this problem.  Radical Islam is THE THREAT to the world as we know it today.  Sorry libs its NOT global warming, its radical ISLAM.  If Muslims want to live in the US, then they have to integrate with us and live under our laws.  That’s it period.  In researching my book The Link, I found an interesting Congressional hearing titled “9/11 FIVE YEARS LATER: GAUGING ISLAMIST TERRORISM” from September 7, 2006 that describes how to defeat radical Islam. A major way is first to call out Radical Islam and not be politically correct.   These people want one thing, the complete domination and destruction of the Western World as we know.  Just think of it as the Taliban taking control of every country in the world.

From “9/11 FIVE YEARS LATER: GAUGING ISLAMIST TERRORISM”:

In War Footing, we offer a number of specific recommendations about how America

could implement such strategies at this juncture. They include the following:

1. Stop evading the issue. No government strategy to date for the so-called ‘‘War

on Terror’’ has included political warfare as an element of the American arsenal.

2. Devise, staff up, and begin executing a political warfare strategy. Countering the

Islamofascist ideology must be its principal focus.

3. De-legitimize Islamist extremism in the eyes of Muslims, and especially its potential

supporters. We need to show that, although violent Islamism is certainly a

problem for us in the West, it is a vastly greater problem for the Muslim community.

• Challenge the Islamists on religious grounds. Many Muslim leaders teach the

message of civility and tolerance, and their voices need to be amplified. We

can help call attention to contradictions between Islamism and the Koran, on

such matters as prohibitions of violence against Muslims; relations between

Muslims and ‘‘people of the book’’ (Jews and Christians); the ban on compulsion

in religion; the doctrine of jihad; the rules of war; killing of innocent civilians,

prohibition of suicide, and so forth.

• Expose economic disaster. There is ample evidence that Islamism, and its imposition

of Shari’a law, results in crippling limitations to economic development,

and thus to the socioeconomic well-being of Muslims. Relevant cases

are Pakistan, Iran, Sudan, and Nigeria.

• Celebrate educational opportunity. Radical Islam has a strongly negative effect

on educational standards, due to its narrow emphasis on Koranic instruction

which fails to equip graduates with any practical job skills, destining

them for jihad or unemployment. Where Islamists hold sway, an erosion in

quality similarly afflicts what had been secular educational systems. There is

evidence, moreover, that with the proliferation of madrassa education, functional

illiteracy is spreading, and literacy rates for women are stagnating.

Any serious effort at political warfare must emphasize the huge costs to societies

that do not fully use the talents of half of their population.

• Emphasize progress. Shari’a-ruled countries exhibit a strong bias against

science and technology education, to the huge detriment of their economic de-

Arab world has yet to join the Industrial Revolution—let alone the Information

Revolution—and that it neither produces much scientific literature nor

carries out real research. A successful political warfare strategy must highlight

this key failure by documenting the numerous religious prohibitions and

restrictions on scientific and technological pursuit imposed by Islamist ideology.

• Enshrine human rights. The regular and officially sanctioned abuse of basic

human rights in Shari’a-dominated countries is yet another glaring Islamist

misdeed that needs to be exposed. Such abuse includes the widespread judicial

and customary discrimination and outright mistreatment of women, from

uncivilized practices such as forced marriages to truly inhumane treatment

such as genital mutilation and ‘‘honor’’ killings. Virtually all of these extreme

Islamist tenets and practices stand in direct contradiction to the UN Universal

Declaration of Human Rights—an international human rights standard

to which all of the Shari’a-dominated countries nominally adhere.

4. Use legislative vehicles for political warfare. Congress has an important role to

play. The groundbreaking 1972 Jackson-Vanik Amendment made favorable trade relations

with the Soviet Union contingent on its permitting free emigration. Under

the leadership of the remarkable Senator Henry M. Jackson, this legislation proved

to be a powerful congressionally created political weapon, one that was used to decisive

effect in de-legitimizing totalitarian Soviet Communism. Sanctions legislation

and assistance to democratic opposition movements can serve a similar purpose in

the War for the Free World.

5. Use our strengths. The good news is that Americans are among the world’s experts

at political warfare. The bad news is that we mainly use it against each other:

After all, the strategies and tactics of any hard-fought election campaign are precisely

the stuff of applied political warfare. The talent, creativity, ingenuity, and,

yes, ruthlessness of top-flight political campaign strategists of both parties should

be mustered for the purpose of fighting our enemies and helping our friends rather

than fighting each other.

The model for such an effort is the ‘‘dollar-a-year man,’’ the highly skilled privatesector

leaders who volunteered their services to the government to assist in the

World War II effort. With this kind of help, we could quickly be well on the way

to building a national political warfare capability.

6. Invest in the instruments of political warfare, including public diplomacy. Public

diplomacy, intended to influence perceptions, attitudes, and actions abroad, must

be viewed as a form of political warfare. We have been dramatically underfunding

an important area of natural American expertise and capability: multimedia communications

aimed at foreign audiences. As part of our War Footing strategy, we

must stop nickel-and-diming our international broadcasting operations. All too frequently

in recent years, we have increased transmission to one region at the expense

of reducing it to another.

An immediate and sweeping ramp-up of our international broadcasting capabilities

is needed to provide high-quality programming:

• Voice of America; ‘‘free radios’’; new services like Radio Sawa and Al Hurra;

and support for the extremely effective private-sector broadcasts (for example,

those beamed into Iran from Los Angeles and more innovative, sometimes

covertly sponsored forms).

• A range of formats (television, satellite, AM/FM or shortwave radio or both,

and the Internet).

• Operating twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, where appropriate.

• Serving every country currently or potentially under assault from Islamism.

The cost of such an ambitious undertaking—though appreciably greater than the

stingy investment we are making in international communications today—pales by

comparison with the costs of military warfare. The investment will be well repaid

if it helps us protect and expand the Free World against the Islamists and their

friends, without resorting to further use of military force.

7. Use the Internet as a tool of political warfare. In particular, the power of creative

Web sites,Webcasting, and blogging should be aggressively exploited.

8. Strengthen the CIA clandestine services, and authorize and fund them for longterm

strategic political warfare.

9. Grant the Department of Defense the primary responsibility for political warfare.

Just as the State Department leads in public diplomacy, the ‘‘warfare’’ side of

communications is legitimately a Pentagon function and must not be assigned to our

diplomats.

10. Don’t forget political warfare in non-Islamist areas. The United States must

combat adversarial political warfare wherever it arises, even in countries traditionally

considered friendly. Despite their differences, the United States and Germany

continue to have strong political, economic, cultural, and military ties. Yet the Socialist/

Green coalition ruling Germany during the first years of the war went out

of bounds in its differences with U.S. policy—to the point of deliberately undermining

American security interests for the sake of political gain in domestic elections.

When politicians cross the line between opposition and sabotage, the United

States must have capabilities to battle them politically.

11. Reinforce and strengthen our friends. By demonstrating that there are not only

consequences for opposing us, but also real and tangible benefits from supporting

us, we can maximize the chances of our success. Critical in this regard is the American

commitment to the continued survival of one of the most exposed countries of

the Free World: Israel.

Two More Top al Qaida Members Taken Out

Posted by rightwinger on January 12, 2009

You may not get this information from ABC, NBC, CBS, or CNN.  Two more top al Qaida members were taken out by US predator drones.  Of course you aren’t hearing the truth that the US is actively going after al Qaida in Pakistan and Afghanistan, so that the president elect and main stream media can keep lying about the one thing Bush did right which is keep Americans safe.  Since Obama is already making clear that he is an appeaser with no real understanding of the threat from radical Islam, the next US attack is on him.   Jan 1st 2009, Cross Fahid Mohammed Ali Msalam and Sheikh Ahmed Salem Swedan were taken out by US predator drones.

Two more top al-Qaida operatives collected their virgins on New Year’s Day. Justice may be delayed, but not denied. Look up in the sky: It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a . . . Predator drone!

U.S. officials have confirmed that a Jan. 1 missile strike killed two top al-Qaida members long sought for the Aug. 7, 1998, bombings of the U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya.

Cross Fahid Mohammed Ali Msalam and Sheikh Ahmed Salem Swedan off the FBI’s “Most Wanted Terrorists” list.

Msalam, also known as Usama al-Kini, and Sedan both from Kenya. Both are believed to have been involved in last September’s bombing of the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, Pakistan, that killed 53 people. The two were killed by an unmanned aircraft operated by the CIA while they were in a not-so-safe house used for explosives-training near the town of Karikot in South Waziristan.

Kini trained terrorists in Africa in the 1990s. After 9/11, he became al-Qaida’s emir of Afghanistan’s Zabul province and later rotated among Afghanistan, Pakistan and East Africa, planning suicide missions, training operatives and raising money.

Transferred to the home office two years ago, he became al-Qaida’s operations director for Pakistan and was responsible for at least seven suicide attacks. These included an assassination try aimed at former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, who would be murdered in December 2007.

South Waziristan has become a prime hunting ground for Predator drones in recent months as part of a campaign to destabilize al-Qaida by decimating its leadership and killing key operatives. The attacks, occurring once every three days, have resulted in the deaths of at least eight top al-Qaida leaders since July.

Bill Roggio of the Long War Journal has compiled a list of some of those who have received final justice recently. They include Abu Laith al Libi, a senior military commander in Afghanistan, who was killed in a strike in North Waziristan last January. Abu Sulayman Jazairi, al-Qaida’s external operations chief, was killed in a strike in Bajaur in March.

Abu Khabab al Masri, al-Qaida’s weapons of mass destruction chief, and several senior members of his staff were killed in a strike in South Waziristan in July. Khalid Habib, leader of al-Qaida’s paramilitary forces in the tribal areas, was killed in North Waziristan in October. Abu Jihad al Masri, leader of the Egyptian Islamic Group and member of al-Qaida’s top council, last October was also killed in North Waziristan.

The next month, Rashid Rauf, mastermind of the 2006 trans-Atlantic airline bomb plot, was killed when a 100-pound Hellfire missile launched from a Predator drone struck a tribesmen’s house in the village of Ali Khel in North Waziristan. Rauf was the architect of the liquid bomb plot that forces travelers to limit fluids to 3.5 ounces in carry-on baggies.

The idea that the U.S. hasn’t taken the battle to the enemy sanctuaries in Syria and Pakistan, or that we are losing control of Afghanistan, isn’t exactly accurate. The terrorists we fight are scurrying about as we lift the remaining rocks they hide under. But there’s no place for them to hide.

Waziristan used to be called al-Qaida’s hideout. Now it’s what American pilots call a target-rich environment. If this campaign continues, maybe we’ll soon find and send to his just reward al-Qaida’s tape-of-the-month club director, Ayman al-Zawahiri, or maybe even his cave-dwelling boss.

We’re running out of targets.

Obama to Negotiate with Hamas

Posted by rightwinger on January 9, 2009

Obama plans to negotiate with Hamas.  We might as well be negotiating with al Qaida.  Hamas was founded by Abdullah Azzam.  Azzam is also the founder of al Qaida.   [Inside al Qaeda by Rohan Gunaratna, p. 28] In addition, Hamas is a Nazi organization. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a well known anti-Semitic propaganda book that was accepted as the gospel by the Nazi’s during World War II.  Hamas has incorporated the Protocols of the Elders of Zion in Article 32 of the charters of Hamas. [The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism by Chuck Morse, p. 95] Hamas and al Qaida are one in the same Islamic Terrorists that want the destruction of the Western world.  This shows how ignorant Obama is.  If we had negotiated with Hitler we would all be speaking German about now.  At the root of the Islamic Terrorists is Nazism.  We should fight these Islamic Terrorists the same as we fought the Nazis in WWII.  These people will not stop until every nation in the world is Muslim under Sharia law.

The Guardian has spoken to three people with knowledge of the discussions in the Obama camp.

There is no talk of Obama approving direct diplomatic negotiations with Hamas early on in his administration, but he is being urged by advisers to initiate low-level or clandestine approaches, and there is growing recognition in Washington that the policy of ostracising Hamas is counter-productive.

Richard Haass, a diplomat under both presidents Bush who was named by a number of news organisations this week as Obama’s choice for Middle East envoy, supports low level contacts with Hamas provided there is a ceasefire in place and a Hamas-Fatah reconciliation emerges…

Bruce Hoffman, a counterterrorism expert at the Georgetown school of foreign service, said it was unlikely Obama would move to initiate contacts with Hamas unless the radical faction in Damascus was crippled by the conflict in Gaza. “This would really be dependent on Hamas’s military wing having suffered a real, almost decisive, drubbing.”

I suggest Obama read Sayyid Qutb’s Milestones which is the Islamic Jihadists manifesto.  There is no negotiating with these people.  When every country in the world has submitted to Sharia law, they will no longer be a problem.  Read how Carter’s negotiations with terrorists caused grave damage to this nations security that remain to this day.

“The basis of the message is that one should accept the sharia without any question and reject all other laws in any shape or form. This is Islam. There is no other meaning of Islam.”

Seyyid Qutb

Obama has no understanding of the roots of radical Islam. It began long before the US invaded Iraq. Although Sayyid Qutb wrote the jihadist manifesto Milestones which is commonly compared to the communist manifesto, Haj Muhammed Amin al-Husseini was the true forefather of radical Islam. Al-Husseini preceded Qutb in his radical anti-Western, anti-semitic ideals. Al-Husseini was a Nazi who worked directly with and for Hitler actively recruiting Muslims to fight in Hilter’s Army.

The scary part is that Obama is being an apologist when he needs to be strong against our enemy, radical Islam. What would have happened if we had tried to appease Hitler? We would all be speaking German now.

Pro-Hamas, Pro-Nazi Protests ignored by MSM

Posted by rightwinger on January 5, 2009

Around the world pro-Hamas groups are protesting.   The MSM is not showing the pro-Nazi aspect of the pro-Hamas protests.   The below protest took place in Chicago of all places.  I went to CNN to see if they are covering any of these protests.  Nope nothing there just more jibberish about how its all Israel’s falt.  The borders were created long ago and must be accepted by the world.  If the American Indians suddenly started using their Reservations to shoot bombs and missiles at American civilians, what do you think the US would do?  Hamas is a terrorist organization started by Abdullah Azzam.  Azzam was also the original founder of al Qaida. [Inside al Qaeda by Rohan Gunaratna, p. 28] In addition, Hamas is a Nazi organization. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a well known anti-Semitic propaganda book that was accepted as the gospel by the Nazi’s during World War II.  Hamas has incorporated the Protocols of the Elders of Zion in Article 32 of the charters of Hamas. Israel is first, next up the Western World.  Great Britain already has 5 Sharia law courts.  AIG is selling Sharia compliant Insurance in the US.  If you think radical Islam that refuses to accept other religions and cultures will meld with the West you are wrong.  These people won’t negotiate.  Seyyid Qutb wrote Milestones which is considered the Islamic jihadists manifesto.

“The basis of the message is that one should accept the sharia without any question and reject all other laws in any shape or form. This is Islam. There is no other meaning of Islam.”

Some good news and bad news for 09

Posted by rightwinger on January 4, 2009

The good news first.  I was very happy to read that Investor’s Business Daily thinks the US will pull out of this recession by the end of 2009.   The down side?  Inflation will be looming at the end of 2009 because of all the mass spending and bailouts.

Contrary to predictions of gloom and doom lasting into 2010, the U.S. economy will pull out of its recession as a massive home inventory overhang is worked off, oil prices stay low, trillions of dollars in stimulus and bailout funds are put to work and Fed interest-rate cuts kick in. Banks and finance companies will start lending again, and rising demand will push companies to hire. By the end of 2009, some people will be voicing concern about a new threat — inflation.

Cheaper energy helps. The weekly average cost of a gallon of gasoline plunged from $4.05 at its peak in mid-July to $1.59 in the last week of 2008. According to Nariman Behravish, chief economist of Global Insight, each 10-cent drop in gas prices is equal to a $12 billion tax cut. So the U.S. will get a “silent” tax cut of about $295 billion.

This means the bear market in stocks — which are one of the economy’s best leading indicators — should be drawing to a close. This bear is now in its 15th month, and most don’t last more than 15 or 16. Nine to 10 is more like it.

Most economists look for a 1% drop in GDP in 2009 as unemployment heads for 8%. But a strong second-half rebound means the U.S. economy might grow in 2009 — and once again pull the rest of the world out of recession with it.

The bad news is that our homeland will be less secure if Obama does not follow George Bush’s lead.  No matter what you have to say about Bush, he kept us safe.  9/11 was due to lack of initiative and precautions taken by the Clinton administration.  The libs want to blame Bush, but he had barely been in office when 9/11 happened.  The intelligence they had was sketchy.  The one hijacker that had been arrested kept quiet until after the attack.  Obama has not once named our enemy of Islamic terrorism.  Political correctness is not what we need to defeat this enemy.  If we had appeased Hitler, we would all be speaking German about now.

One of the Bush Administration’s key reasons for letting the National Security Agency listen to communications between the U.S. and al-Qaida contacts was that the special courts set up by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act often work too slowly to prevent terrorist operations. As current CIA director and former NSA director Gen. Michael Hayden put it, “it’s a quicker trigger . . . it allows us to be as agile as operationally required to cover these targets.”

Given this success, will Barack Obama as president follow the wishes of many of his fellow Democrats in Congress and dilute this indispensable tool that has helped keep us safe since the 9/11 attacks?

Will he end the CIA’s so-called “black prisons” program, in which tough interrogations were used on key terrorist detainees in foreign locations, to extract information about future attack plans?

Will he take the heat from the left of his own party and boldly use his constitutional authority as president to go the extra mile in protecting the country, as George W. Bush has?

Will he view victory as imperative in both Iraq and Afghanistan, recognizing them as fronts in the war on terror?

We’ll see. Promising to get Osama bin Laden sounds great in a campaign; governing requires more than catchphrases.

Let Mumbai be a Reminder – Islamic Terrorism is alive and well

Posted by rightwinger on December 2, 2008

Let’s not live in a pre-9/11 fog.  The truth is that Islamic Terrorism is alive and well.  Islamic terrorists don’t compromise.  Making nice with terrorists will just enable them further.  Look at Iran and how Carter dealt with them. The next Terrorist attack on US soil is on Obama.  Bush kept us safe since 9/11.  Now Obama thinks that if we grow the Middle East from the bottom up, Islamic terrorism will go away.   Obama has not once said Islamic terrorists are a threat to the US.  He has NO understanding of what we are up against.  The Islamic terrorists will not stop until all countries of the world are Muslim and under Sharia law.

Here is Obama on radical Islam, July 13, 2008:

there has been a shift in Islam that I believe is connected to the failures of governments and the failures of the West to work with many of these countries, in order to make sure that opportunities are there, that there’s bottom-up economic growth.

From the author of Milestones, the Islamic jihadist’s manifesto says:

“The basis of the message is that one should accept the sharia without any question and reject all other laws in any shape or form. This is Islam. There is no other meaning of Islam.”
– Seyyid Qutb

From The Link: The Secret Relationship between Saddam and al Qaida:

Qutb states that sharia is the Divine Law that needs to be established on the earth while abolishing all man-made laws. Individuals can only be truly Muslim by submitting themselves to sharia. “Sharia of God is meant everything legislated by God for ordering man’s life; it includes the principles of belief, principles of administration and justice, principles of morality and human relationships, and principles of knowledge.”61  Qutb specifically chastises Muslim’s who compromise and do not whole heartedly accept sharia in all forms: political, social, economic, religious, and legal.”

“Democracy in the West has become infertileto such an extent that it is borrowing from the systems of the Eastern bloc,  especially in the economic system, under the name of socialism.”

The Link: The Secret Relationship between Saddam and al Qaida

Posted by rightwinger on November 30, 2008

I just completed my book: The Link: The Secret Relationship between Saddam and al Qaida.

The Link provides new evidence regarding:

* Saddam and al Qaida were working together since 1990
* al Qaida was located in Iraq since 1995
* Saddam in his own words says he gave the order for the 1993 World Trade Center attack.
* An Iraqi agent met with a 9/11 hijacker prior to the 9/11 attack
* WMDs were in Iraq up until Operation Iraqi Freedom

What you think you know about Saddam and al Qaida, you don’t.   The main stream media has deliberately not investigated the al Qaida and Saddam link in order to defame President Bush and keep a lie in tact.  The Link details the facts that Saddam was training, financing, and carrying out operations with al Qaida. The Link is based on Iraqi memos, transcripts, and documents that were recovered by our military during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

See What Others Have Said:

“As one of the great authors on this subject, Louis Fairmont has unleashed the truth about the War on Terrorism in this dynamic new book. As a Anti-Terror/Force Protection specialist, I strongly recommend this book in order to understand why the United States was fully justified in the Iraq War.  Saddam Hussein was a clear and present threat to the security of the United States and the free world.”

–  Steven J. Lucks, Captain US Navy (retired)

“The Link” provides a well-researched in-depth analysis of Sharia law, the driving force behind spread of radical Islam, and its influence on society. It is a good educational tool that should be used by Westerners who, for the most part, are completely ignorant of the grave danger that could end Western civilization as we know it.

– Khalim Massoud,President, Muslims Against Sharia

Watch the video on WMDs in Iraq in 2001

Watch the video about al Qaida being in Iraq in 1995
