An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Mr Bucci says the enemy is harder to pin down now than it was previously. I beg to differ. The enemy is the same. Islam. Islam is the enemy of freedom the world over. Wipe out Islam, this particular war is over. It’s just that simple.
I doubt the victims and their families don’t give a flying flip whether it was the “A” team, or the JVs who murdered and injured. Mr Obama needs to pull his head out of his hinder, and face reality. He might have enjoyed that caterwauling as a kid, but it’s the ones doing the caterwauling that are murdering innocent people!
These Words from Obama Are Frightening — and Revealing
Steven Bucci – The Foundry
It’s less than comforting to hear the President make light of terrorist threats.
In a recent interview with The New Yorker, President Obama referred to today’s al-Qaeda fighters as the “jayvee” team.
“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” he said.
This shows that the Administration’s wishful thinking about al-Qaeda isn’t over. Obama and his fellow officials seem to think if you say something enough times, it will become true.
In May, 2008, 1Lt. Michael Behenna found himself in Afghanistan interrogating a terrorist who had killed two of his soldiers. Suddenly, the terrorist lunged for Lt. Behenna’s pistol. Fortunately Lt. Behenna’s reflexes were faster than the terrorist’s and he was able to fire a bullet into his chest and head, killing him. By any measure it was good shooting.
When someone attacks you, you have the right…nay…the DUTY to protect yourself!
But Lt. Behenna was charged by the Army with premeditated murder and found guilty of doing what he had been trained to do – kill terrorists. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison. The seven men who found him guilty are non-infantry officers. That means their combat experience is limited and they haven’t had to stare death in the face where the fastest and most accurate shooter lives.
No one who has never served in combat, especially in today’s combat, should EVER be allowed the actions of such a hero! EVER!! Those seven men are guilty of more than just stupidity!
There is no such thing as being guilty of the premeditated murder of an Islamic terrorist. The deaths of all terrorists merit premeditation. And Lt. Behenna merits a presidential pardon, but that won’t happen. Writing in his memoire, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates says that President Obama is distrustful of America’s military officers so he would have no reason to believe that Lt. Behenna acted appropriately.
Terrorist constantly murder innocents, and it’s ALWAYS premeditated. They PLAN the murders. How can anyone say otherwise? All should be lined up and shot. No trial needed. Guilt is already proven by their actions!
Similarly, Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, a highly decorated combat commander, was reassigned from Afghanistan back to the US to teach a course entitled “Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism” at the US Joint Forces Staff College. The curriculum Lt. Col. Dooley was assigned to teach was approved many years ago, but for some reason did not come to the attention of Muslim special interest groups until Lt. Col. Dooley arrived. Fifty-Seven Muslim organizations signed a letter to the Department of Defense demanding that training materials offensive to them be purged and instructors disciplined.
Muslims don’t like the truth. They lie on a regular basis, and whine when their lies are not believed. I don’t give a rat’s ass if they are offended by the truth. Perhaps it’s time to eject them from our nation, and screw the PC BS!
Sun Tzu said to know your enemy. Well, we know him. He’s a brutal animal, with no conscience. You fight a war to win. Screw the hearts and minds. Demand respect! With a commander in chief that sides with the enemy, no war will ever be won. Persecuting those who fight the wars will lose the warriors. But that’s his intent, isn’t it. To totally decimate the military? Perhaps he should remember, not all warriors are in uniform.
This video was uploaded nearly 2 years ago. We’ve known the movement of muslims in the U.S. has increased in recent years, imposing sharia where they can, and spewing their filth in our schools, pushing islam on the unsuspecting, and totally ignorant. I don’t care what Bush said after 9/11. Islam is NOT a peaceful religion. It is not a real religion. Allah is NOT God. We do not worship the same deity.
Blueish shared this video, in a comment, and I felt it was important to post it here. If you want to learn about islam, Religion of Peace has an amazing amount of information. Our government does NOTHING to keep us safe from these barbarians, and the current occupant of the Oval Office is actually inviting them in, and giving them OUR money to support them.
Tear down the mosques, salt the earth, and kick all the murderous barbarians out of this country. Deny the entry of any muslims. This is not a religion protected by the 1st Amendment. This is a political move to dominate the entire world with 7th century ideology.
Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hassan was found guilty on all counts of premeditated murder and attempted murder Friday, making him eligible for the death penalty.
Sentencing was set for Monday.
A military jury deliberated for roughly one day before announcing the verdict.
Hasan sat emotionless, stroking his beard as the verdict was delivered.
He was charged with 13 counts of pre-meditated murder and 32 counts of attempted pre-meditated murder in the Nov. 2009 shooting attack at the sprawling Texas military base.
Yes…it was ‘pre-meditated’. It was a freaking act of TERRORISM! On OUR Army base!! And it was FOURTEEN murdered! It royally pisses me off that they refuse to count the unborn CHILD!
Sen Ted Cruz released this statement:
I hope and pray this verdict will bring some peace to Nidal Hasan’s victims and their families. But if we ever hope to defeat the ongoing threat from radical Islamism, we need to start by calling this terrorist attack on our armed forces by its name. Hiding behind “workplace violence” and excluding evidence on Hasan’s pursuit of jihad will not make terrorism go away or properly honor the American heroes who were slain at Fort Hood on November 5, 2009.
STOP SHAFTING OUR MILITARY HEROES!! He murdered 14 human beings in the name of that fake god of his. This was an ACT OF TERROR, perpetrated by a raving lunatic, member of the military, who SHOULD have been in a loony bin a LONG time ago. Political correctness murdered those 14 people!
…I had my suspicions about this whole embassy and consulate mess before I read this piece. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still think Jones is a fruit cake, but sometimes, he does get it right. I wonder if this is one of those times?
A high-ranking Yemeni security official has told McClatchy that the Obama administration’s recently announced terror threat which supposedly targeted US embassies had “no basis in fact” and was manufactured merely to dampen opposition to drone strikes.
After initially warning of a terror plot “thought to have been one of the most serious against American and other Western interests since the September 11 attacks,” the US closed 20 embassies and consulates earlier this month, 18 of which reopened yesterday.
I often get the feeling that the Obama administration is doing a LOT of dog wagging. Here we have a possible BS threat on the one hand, but are we watching what is going on in the other hand? Sadly, no. There are a whole slew of distractions that Obama and clowns come up with so we won’t pay attention to what is going on in our own backyard.
The announcement of the threat against US embassies also served to justify blanket NSA surveillance, leading some to suggest that the alleged plot was being hyped to distract from the Edward Snowden scandal. It was later claimed that the NSA had intercepted a “conference call” of Al-Qaeda members during which militants discussed an attack.
Yeah…well…sorry! But THAT doesn’t cut it! There is NO excuse for the NSA to be spying on law abiding American citizens. If they want to spy on someone, they need to stick to the ENEMY, not the PATRIOT!
“There are strikes that kill civilians. There are strikes that kill women and children. And when you kill people in Yemen, these are people who have families. They have clans. And they have tribes. And what we’re seeing is that the United States might target a particular individual because they see him as a member of al-Qaeda. But what’s happening on the ground is that he’s being defended as a tribesman,” said Johnson.
I don’t mean to be tacky, but I’m going to be anyway. As far as I’m concerned, ALL muslims are potential terrorists. I’m not crazy about the idea of killing children, anywhere, for any reason. Children can be ‘re-programed’ not to hate, usually, as long as they can be gotten away from that book of hatred they call ‘holy’.
Figures show that 50 civilians are killed for every one terrorist taken out by a drone strike, which means that 95% of the victims are innocent men, women and children.
Those aren’t good odds. I thought we had gotten better at pin pointing the bad guys? Is someone getting some bad training? I know that in any war, and yes, contrary to what some will tell you, this IS a war…a war against evil…there will be collateral damage, however, unless those drones are capable of specifying a target, without the excess damage, then perhaps someone should rethink the use of them? Just a thought.
As Ron Paul notes in his column today, while the Obama administration is conducting drone strikes in Yemen to supposedly target Al-Qaeda terrorists, the White House is simultaneously supporting the allies of Al-Qaeda terrorists, the vast majority of whom have pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda, in Syria.
Nope, not a Ron Paul fan either, but like Jones, he does, occasionally, get it right! The lack of logic in this administration is mind boggling. The hypocrisy is rampant! They are aiding and abetting the enemy in one country, and killing them, plus many, in another. Where’s the common sense? Oh, that’s right…this is the Obama administration…there is NO common sense! Nor is there any loyalty to the country, or her allies. They have made a HUGE mess, and someone in the future, is going to have to clean it up. That will NOT be easy, since few of our ‘allies’ have any trust in us anymore. Shoot, I don’t trust us!
….GIMME A BREAK!!!
Why anyone would even want to travel to these countries these days, is a question I can’t answer. Ok, I’ve no doubt people do business with them, but why? They promote terrorism, they will cheat and lie to get their way. Why do business with people like that? Do WE have no honor? I guess not!
I was surprised to hear they had even closed the embassy in Israel, but are reopening it. Uh…why? Israelis aren’t the threat, and they have the BEST security measure in the world! I never felt fear when we were over there. When we went to Jordon, I wasn’t all that comfortable but Israel? Pfft! I’d rather walk down the streets of Jerusalem in the middle of the night, alone, than broad daylight in the middle of a crowd, in Chicago!
The phony POTUS told us that al Qaeda was on the run. Well, as with most of his proclamations, that was total BS, and we all knew it. Well, maybe not the media, because whatever he says, to them, it’s gospel. Shows ya just how ignorant, and TOTALLY out of touch THEY are, doesn’t it! Hey…didn’t he tell us they would do whatever it takes to bring those who attacked and murdered our citizens to justice? Yeah…that was another BS proclamation. We know who, we know where, we ain’t doin’ DICK!
Ok, so listening to the bad guys got the chatter. This is what all that gobbedly gook is suppose to do. What it is NOT suppose to do is track law abiding American citizens, going about their every day business, whether or not that business involved slamming this administration for it’s feckless, and DANGEROUS, policies, or not.
The federal government’s job is to protect the citizens, and they really suck at it (Brian Terry), so perhaps we need to revamp? Just asking. Protecting our interests abroad? They aren’t too good at that either. Just ask Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods.
Where NOT to Travel This Month
Amy Payne – The Foundry
The State Department closed 21 U.S. embassies over the weekend and issued a travel alert for Americans regarding the Middle East and northern Africa, warning of possible terrorist threats in the region.
Where did the intelligence come from that prompted the caution?
As NBC’s Brian Williams said, “It all began with an intercepted communication.”
An official says three children and their father died when their car hit a bomb on a road in western Afghanistan, the latest deaths in a sharp rise in civilian casualties.
Farah province spokesman Abdul Rahman Zhawandai says the family was driving early Tuesday when their car hit the buried bomb. The father and children were killed instantly. The mother was critically injured.
Civilian casualties have soared in recent weeks as insurgents attack around the country to test the Afghan security forces, now that international troops have stepped back.
The United Nations says that in just two weeks, violence has killed or wounded 412 civilians, up 24 percent over the same time last year. The U.N. blames insurgents for 84 percent of those deaths.
Insurgents? Excuse me, but can we PLEASE call them what they are? TERRORISTS! ISLMAMIC TERRORISTS! Murderous pedophile thugs who kill indiscriminately, not caring who dies, including themselves!
That fool up in D.C. declared the ‘war on terror’ over back in April of 2012. Someone forgot to tell the TERRORISTS that the ONE had spoken, so they failed to lay down their arms, roll over and play dead. Someone also needs to inform that same fool that this will never end until Islam is completely wiped off the planet, or when the REAL Messiah returns…when Islam WILL be wiped off the planet. :D Pay back will not be pleasant for them!
Yesterday, I made a post about our non victory in the Middle East. In the comments, The Bunker left a link to a video. After watching it, I felt I must post it, not the scrubbed version, but the actual, language, perverts and all! What the hell are we doing there? We beat the crap out of them in the initial attack, and then someone decided our men were suppose to win hearts and minds? Excuse me, but BULLSHIT! Dealing with this kind of garbage, is it any wonder that an average of 22 vets are committing suicide every day? As far as I’m concerned, the whole damn place should be turned into a large field of glass. I see NO reason for our, or any other nation to be there, attempting to save their sorry asses! If they can’t take control of their own country, then why do the morons in D.C. believe we could do anything to convince them they should?
Yes…. I am disgusted that the greatest military in the world has been reduced to this! That country if full of sick, sadistic, pigs in positions of power, and we do nothing but ask for the locals help in stopping it? Field….of….GLASS!!
On this Memorial Day, remember there are still many fighting and dying, attempting to do their job, but have been given the shaft by their own government…. the same politicians that are only there, and in D.C., for the photo ops and pay checks. I am FED UP! They were sent there for a purpose, and the politicians got in the way!
Judging by what Mr Obama said concerning the TERROR attack on the British soldier, it is my opinion that he has totally lost touch with reality….if he was ever IN touch…which is becoming more and more doubtful. I can actually empathize with Mr Obama. I want it all to be over…I want the bad guys to disappear into whatever hell awaits them, but reality is something completely different from what I want, and apparently, from what he appears to really believe.
No Mr Obama, you do not have al Qaeda on the run. There has been no decrease in Islamic terrorism. Quite the opposite, especially under your WEAK watch. As of 9:53am, 24 May 2013, there have been 20,934 known acts of terror, worldwide, several of which you REFUSE to label as such, for reasons known only to you. I suspect your sympathies towards the Islamists have something to do with your break with reality.
No matter what name these groups choose to call themselves, for the most part, they are Muslim. Your failure to recognize them as such, and the war they have declared on the civilized world tells them what they need to know about you. You are not a leader, strong, weak, or anything in between. Our allies know it. We know it, as well.
President Obama Is Tired of Fighting Terrorism
James Carafano – The Foundry
“We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender…”
These were words President Obama never used during his speech at the National Defense University yesterday. Rather, he said anything but anything that sounded like Winston Churchill’s immortal speech about defiance in the face of the march of tyranny.
In large part, there was nothing new in the counterterrorism strategy the President announced. Flash back to 2011—that was the real turning point. Before then, Obama really followed what was called “Bush-lite,” pretty much the same tactics as the previous Administration—just dropping all the rhetoric.
The war of ideas was completely banned from the Obama lexicon. Islamist terrorism became “violent extremism.” Terrorism became “senseless violence.” In 2011, however, Obama shifted course dramatically. More than dumping the war of words, the White House signed off on a new counterterrorism strategy that amounted to running away from Iraq and Afghanistan as quickly as possible and limiting the offensive campaign to whacking top-level al-Qaeda with drone strikes.
The new strategy was bound to fail, fighting the last war while al-Qaeda evolved into a global insurgency that has spread from Pakistan to Nigeria.
A couple of items on Drudge caught my eye this morning:
The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said Wednesday that it is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for stealing 559 pounds of explosives last month near Red Lodge.
Items stolen included emulsion-type explosives, explosive cast boosters and detonating cord.
The number of names on a highly classified U.S. central database used to track suspected terrorists has jumped to 875,000 from 540,000 only five years ago, a U.S. official familiar with the matter said.
Among those was suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, whose name was added in 2011. The increase in names is due in part to security agencies using the system more in the wake of the failed 2009 attack on a plane by “underpants bomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab in Detroit.
Intelligence and law enforcement officials acknowledged in Congress that they had missed clues to that attack despite Abdulmutallab’s name appearing in the main database, known as TIDE.
Now, I’m not saying that the two are connected, but when ya stop and think about it, we have evil people, ignored (missed clues) by the administration, in our country trying to blow up innocent men, women, and children, and that number is increasing on a regular basis. So, if I were an evil muzzie thug murderer, where would I go to find easy pickins’ for materials to blow people up? Hmmm…
There are a few items that have come to my attention over the last few days…week? Well, anyway, I’ve noticed but have been a wee bit busy with real life. Yes, I DO have a life that does not include sitting on the internet. As a matter of fact, the internet has become a bone of contention with me, as has the news on the idjit box.
The most recent to come to my attention is the approval, or lack there of, of the top four Congress critters, Reid, Pelosi, Boehner and McConnell. Guess which one is most reviled! Yep….Nancy Pelosi is viewed as the most polarizing of the bunch, although the rest didn’t fare too well either.
The top Republican and Democratic leaders in the U.S. House and Senate are a generally unpopular foursome, with Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi being the most well-known, but also the least well-liked. Thirty-one percent of Americans view Pelosi favorably and 48% unfavorably. Her resulting net -17 image score compares with -11 for Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, -10 for Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner, and -8 for Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. (Via Tea Party Economist via Gallup)
To be perfectly honest, I think her ‘favorably’ numbers are WAY too high! 31%? Seriously? The woman is a shrew! A horrible, evil, shrew! Her arrogance ranks right up there with D’Bama’s. SHE knows better than you how you should live your life. Don’t forget, she’s the one who marched through Tea Party activists, with the infamous gavel. I’d love to smack that smirk off her face!
Then, there is the recent terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon. For reasons known only to themselves, there are actually people who are big fans of the little jihadi who murdered 4 people. This totally baffles me! As seen on Twitter (Via Clash Daily):
“Call me crazy, but I know Jahar is innocent. There is no evidence whatsoever, you’re all going by what the police SAID. #freejahar”
“America tells you to stand up for what you believe in, and that’s exactly what I’m doing! #FreeJahar HE IS INNOCENT!!!!!!!”
“Don’t believe everything you hear and see on the news. Governments have lied to us before. #FreeJahar He is an innocent man!!”
Are these people serious??? We’ve seen the pictures…what more proof do they need? The POS put that backpack down just a few feet from 8 year old Martin Richard and MURDERED him! He even ran over his own brother, killing him too! There is an odd, and dangerous, obsession coming from the left. The hero worship of murderers (Abu-Jamal) and tyrants (Che) speaks volumes about our education system, and the main stream media. (Read the whole piece) If you are one of those clueless, please, do yourself a favor, and look up the facts…FACTS…of both animals. Educate yourself!
Also of major concern, in regards to the attack, the older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev (killed by younger brother), was on two separate watch lists. Excuse me? Why was he even in this country? He was not an American citizen, and should have been under surveillance, and deported! Top this all off with the FACT that they were being supported by the taxpayers, via the welfare system. So, we PAID terrorists to kill innocents. Oh yeah…lots of logic in THAT one!
The four women, representing the pro-abortion and homosexual group FEMEN, took to the stage where they disrobed to reveal black-painted slogans on their bare chests and backs, such as ‘my body my rules,’ and ‘anus dei is coming.’ They also held signs reading ‘stop homophobia’. The women doused the archbishop with water from bottles formed in the image of the Virgin Mary.
The patience of this man is astounding! He has been attacked on a regular basis for standing up for his faith. “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.” Matthew 5:11 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” John 15:18-19 Things are only going to get worse. Be prepared!
Oh yes, and once again, Congress is putting themselves above the laws they impose on the rest of us.
Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have been quietly negotiating behind the scenes to exempt themselves and their staffs from the insurance exchanges in Obamacare, according to one report.
They make the laws….they break the laws. Now, you’ll have to excuse me if I believe this is
There’s more, but I have things to do, places to go, people to see, and such!
Yesterday, I laid out 10 short items that would go a long way to making sure that we are safer. We’ll never be 100% safe, because there is evil in this world, and it is growing. A couple of items were a bit ‘tongue in cheek’, but not completely.
Using the deaths of 4 human beings to push an agenda for amnesty, is making my coffee curdle. Yet, apparently, that is what our so called representatives have been doing for the last few days. Not one of them is stating the FACT that all attacks, or attempted attacks, have one thing in common. Even left wing pundit, Bob Beckel, is more aware of the common thread, and isn’t afraid to state it publicly. ISLAM! Whether you choose to believe the truth, and realize there is nothing peaceful about that cult, or continue to bury your head in the sand and blame America for such actions, it is islam that is at the root of 99.9% of all terror attacks around the world.
So called ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ would have done NOTHING to stop the attack in Boston. NOTHING! Perhaps, if we had a competent administration, but even then, if a piece of crap is determine to murder people, they will find a way…if one fails, then another is waiting in the wings to take his/her place. There is a long line of thugs willing to murder for their pedophile prophet. Many were born here, many have lived in the country for years, many are sneaking across the borders, north and south, and some are being INVITED IN by this administration….all with that one thing in common!
The media is shamelessly promoting the ‘nice kid’ stories. NOTE TO LAME STREAM: Nice kids don’t murder children! Or college students! Or police officers! Finding the truth is important, but it doesn’t matter, at this point, if they were ‘lone wolves’, part of a small cell, or a larger organization. They were NOT nice kids! They CHOSE to murder INNOCENT human beings! Stop using them as an excuse to score political points with CRIMINAL aliens!
Don’t Fall Into the Boston Immigration Trap
Jessica Zuckerman – The Foundry
As the country continues to reel over the attacks in Boston last week, some in Washington quickly looked for ways to use the attacks to justify their political goals on border security and immigration reform.
On both sides of the aisle, politicians and commentators were quick to assert that the fact that the two suspected bombers were immigrants was reason enough to call for changes to everything, from border security and stricter background checks to amnesty.
It’s unfortunate that people are trying to spin the tragic events in Boston to advance their legislative agendas, but it’s also falling into an emotional trap—the Boston attackers should not be the focus of this immigration debate.
