“AMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP!”

by lewwaters

A speech given by U.S. Navy Captain Ouimette back in 2003. Although it has been widely circulated since then, it appears that the very warning he gave has once again been ignored as by and large, Western Civilization has “hit the snooze button and gone back to sleep.”

WTC CollapseAMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP!

That’s what we think we heard on the 11th of September 2001 (When more than 3,000 Americans were killed) and maybe it was, but I think it should have been “Get Out of Bed!” In fact, I think the alarm clock has been buzzing since 1979 and we have continued to hit the snooze button and roll over for a few more minutes of peaceful sleep since then.

It was a cool fall day in November 1979 in a country going through a religious and political upheaval when a group of Iranian students attacked and seized the American Embassy in Tehran. This seizure was an outright attack on American soil; it was an attack that held the world’s most powerful country hostage and paralyzed a Presidency. The attack on this sovereign U. S. embassy set the stage for events to follow for the next 23 years.

Angry!

by lewwaters

Anger 3Yes, I am angry. Angry to see another journalist killed by beheading.

But I am also reminded that those journalists traveled to that region of their own accord, unlike our Troops who have been sent there for many years now to fight terrorists.

We lost thousands of them and the very media those journalists represent barely raised an eyebrow, other than to use those deaths to weaken our resolve in fighting terror and undermine the fight we all saw as so necessary after over 20 years and some 15 terrorist attacks against our way of life, culminating in the devastating September 11, 2001 attacks.

Obama & Kerry, Preparing to Send Troops “to Die For the Biggest Nothing in History?”

by lewwaters

“I said this from the beginning of the debate to the walk up to the war. I said, Mr. President don’t rush to war, take the time to build a legitimate coalition and have a plan to win the peace. It’s the wrong war, in the wrong place at the wrong time.” – Sen. John Kerry, August 30, 2004 in opposition to the Iraq war.

“There is a reason why no matter what you believe about Syria, all peoples and all nations who believe in the cause of our common humanity must stand up to assure that there is accountability…” Sec. of State John Kerry, August 26, 2013 in support of Military action against neighboring Syria.

Kerry goofOnce again we get to see the situational ethics plaguing today’s Democrat Party as there is nothing they won’t politicize for political gain, even if it costs the lives of some of our Troops.

Kerry, the scorn of many Vietnam Veterans, this blogger included, for his treasonous acts and ‘testimony’ filled with lies before the Fulbright Commission back in 1971 after his abbreviated 4-month tour in Vietnam, who voted to approve sending Troops into Iraq only to come out heavily opposed a year later when he campaign for the Presidency, who claimed “I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it” to fund the Iraq War and who said in 2007, “Iraq, as in Vietnam, more American soldiers are being sent to fight and die in a civil war we can’t stop and an insurgency we can’t bomb into submission” somehow now seem to think that we will be able to bomb or stop what is going on in Syria with Military intervention.

Herrera Beutler Discovers Obama’s “Kinetic Military Action”

by lewwaters

It has been a whole week since the Obama administration launched air and sea attacks against the country of Libya, Saturday March 19, 2011. In somewhat of a role reversal, it is Republicans now questioning the necessity of what the Obama administration is calling a “Kinetic Military Action” instead of a “war.”

As one man who has witnessed war, armed conflict or kinetic military action, whatever you wish to call it up close and personal, I question the necessity of all actions that might place our Troops in harm’s way.

From the first bomb dropping, several in congress from both parties questioned the necessity of a third war at this time, which drew the label of it isn’t a war but a “kinetic military action” from the administration. Call it what you will, people are dying from the use of munitions from opposing sides in battle.

I began looking for any word from our newly installed congresscritter Jaime Herrera-Beutler the same day the “Kinetic Military Action” commenced and during the week as well. Knowing she was excessively weak in the area of foreign policy, just one of several reasons why I opposed her candidacy last year, I was prepared to give-up on her taking any coherent stand on this issue.

Pentagon to Scapegoat Officers Over Fort Hood Shooting

by lewwaters

As many suspected would happen, 5 to 8 Army officer may have been selected to be the scapegoats over Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan’s murderous rampage in November 2009 that left 13 people dead and many wounded.

As is being reported in the Los Angeles Times, “[the] officers are expected to face discipline for failing to take action” against Hasan “over a series of behavioral and professional problems in the years leading up to the November rampage.”

Why don’t they instead release what the real problem was, Political Correctness?

We all know had anyone leveled complaints against Hasan, they would have been drummed out of the Military for violating his Civil Rights and displaying Islamophobia.

If not drummed out, all would have been reprimanded, effectively ending their careers and subjected to “sensitivity training.”

We are not only facing a brutal enemy on the battlefield today, but an internal enemy that leaves our Military fearful of doing the jobs we train and pay them for.

How can we expect our Military to do their jobs when they must also face scorn for calling a spade a spade?

If anybody needs placed on trial alongside Hasan, it is all those politicians who dumbed down the Army to allow substandard training and less that reliable people to join in.

It is the Politically Correctness of society that was forced off onto the Army that needs tried!

Obama Admin: Terrorist Offered “Incentives” To Share Info

by lewwaters

From Politico.com

White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan is saying on the Sunday talk show circuit, “The U.S. Government is offering the suspect charged with attempting to bomb an aircraft on Christmas Day, Omar Abdulmutallab, some kind of incentives to share what he knows about Al Qaeda.”

Asked why he should, given his “legal rights” granted as a “criminal,” Brennan replied, “He doesn’t have to but he knows there are certain things that are on the table… if he wants to engage with us in a productive manner, there are ways he can do that.”

What kind of “incentive” could they give? Lighter sentence? An assumed identity and a Beverly Hills villa? The keys to Washington D.C.? A trip to Disneyland? Maybe an appointment as Obama’s radical Jihadists liason czar?

The only deal he deserves is if he doesn’t talk, we will help him find his 72 virgins……….., slowly!

How can you offer incentives to someone ready to murder nearly 300 innocent people, women and children included?

Whiny Ron Paul Blames America Again

by lewwaters

Supreme cult leader and whiner extraordinaire, Ron Paul, Libertarian/Republican from Texas, who was twice defeated miserably in runs for president, has continued the whiny performance we saw in the debates he participated in during the 2008 campaign.

Paul, known for blaming America for the terrorist attacks against our country during those debates, continues blaming America for the latest but thwarted attack on Christmas Day.

Asked by Larry King on the December 28, 2009 show about the thwarted attack on this past Christmas Day aboard NWA Flt 253, Paul whines in response, “One thing that is missing here is never asking the question what is the motive? He said why he was — he did it. He said it was because we bombed Yemen two weeks ago. That was his motive.”

Once again, Paul blames America for terrorist attacks against us.

Apparently Paul whines more than doing his homework. As pointed out by ABC’s Jake Tapper,

“Omar Abdulmutallab was in the field long before that airstrike. (He purchased his plane ticket in Ghana the day before, in fact, and had been in Yemen for months before).”

Paul somehow, as brilliant as he supposed to be, completely missed simple news reports that the plan was put in place and tickets purchased prior to the December 17 strike in Yemen. How do you retaliate for something that had yet to happen?

Trying desperately to interrupt Stein, Paul keeps on whining, “why,” “What makes them terrorists” and “They’re terrorists because we’re occupiers” in response to Steins answer of, “They’re terrorists and murders because they are psychos.”

Ben Stein rightfully lays into Paul pointing out his anti-semitism by telling Paul, “No, we’re not occupiers. That’s the same anti-Semitic argument we’ve heard,” which just brings out more whiny words from Paul, accusing Stein of a “vicious attack,” in his normal nasal whiny voice.

Cry me a bucket of tears, Paul.

Ron Paul and his glassy eyed worshippers make the claim that they are the true heirs to the legacy of Ronald Reagan and that Reagan would agree with Paul’s naïve view of foreign policy and fighting terror.

If any of them actually did their homework and researched what Reagan actually stood for, they would choke on that claim.

In the July 1975 issue of the Libertarian magazine, Reason, Reagan was interviewed and asked about Viet Nam (the war on terror had not started yet, for you Paulies). He replied about the outcome,

“Once you are going to commit yourself to a combat role and you’re going to ask young men to fight and die for your country, then you have a moral obligation as a nation to throw the full resources of the nation behind them and to win that war as quickly as possible and get it over with, and this is where we made the mistake: to pour half a million men in there, to kill 54,000 young men in a cause that Washington, that the government was unable or unwilling to win.”

Who better fits the statement of “unwilling to win” than Ron Paul?

He’s not only unwilling to win, he blames America while ignoring obvious evidence to the contrary.

Little wonder why Paul never progressed beyond single digits in true polls last year and only won some 35 delegates.

Does Anybody Know Why Are We In Afghanistan?

by lewwaters


Watch this video and pay close attention to the very end, if you still wonder why


A curious question you might ask?

I have to agree, but that is one asked by a reader of our local paper, The Columbian in the December 14, 2009 Letters To The Editor and titled Deploying more troops is regrettable.

How have people been lulled back to sleep after September 11, 2001? How has the left forgotten and ignored how they demeaned President Bush’s efforts in Iraq by crying often, “Afghanistan is where the fight is” or “Afghanistan is the central front in the War on Terror?” Is that not a question frequently put before us by those who said Iraq was a folly and was drawing needed resources away from the real war in Afghanistan?

Failed 2004 Democrat candidate for president, John ‘F’in Kerry is one of the more vocal ones who expressed strong opposition to Iraq while calling for more resources to Afghanistan and now, talks of abandoning Afghanistan too, just as he advocated when he stabbed Viet Nam Veterans in the back in 1971.

He is far from the only one, though. On September 14, 2001 a rare display of bi-partisanship authorized President Bush to take Military action. It passed in the Senate by a vote of 98 to 0 and the House, 420 to 1. Then chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Joe Biden said, “The nation is resolute, and I have every confidence we will prevail.”

The Republican whip in the House, Tom DeLay said, “The president can act with patience and deliberation because the American people are united behind our duty to vindicate freedom.”

Apparently that “resolute feelings” and “united” notion held little meaning for all too many as we are told in an October 13, 2009 New York Times article, “Mr. Biden has been Mr. Obama’s in-house pessimist on Afghanistan, the strongest voice against further escalation of American forces there and the leading doubter of the president’s strategy” now that he is vice president.

An Open Letter To American Muslims

by lewwaters

Once again a rift of fear has risen between our people. The horrific actions of Major Malik Nidal Hasan in the senseless murders of 13 of his fellow American soldiers in Ft. Hood Texas last Thursday, November 5, 2009, has many of my fellow Christians outraged and incensed towards all Muslims in America.

I do not completely share their view.

I am concerned, however. Concerned that this will happen again and yes, concerned of potential backlashes against you, innocent Muslims who just go about their business on a daily basis.

I am concerned when I read of groups of Muslim men arrested for plotting to attack Military Bases inside America.

I am concerned when I read of a young Muslim arrested, thinking he is going to blow up a building in Dallas, Texas.

I am concerned when I read of 16 year-old girl fearful of returning to her Muslim parents due to her exercising her god-given and constitutionally guaranteed right to embrace the religion of her choice in America.

I am concerned when I read of a well to do Muslim man beheading his wife in New York, because she filed for divorce from him and he is operating a TV station aimed at countering negative Muslim stereotypes.

I am concerned when I read of a Muslim father running down his adult daughter and killing her because she has become too “westernized.”

I am concerned when I see footage after a Muslim man serving in our Army and charged with helping those with the scars of battle embedded in their minds coldly murders 13 of their number.

Most of all, I am concerned when I read of a Muslim saying about those murders,

“When a white guy shoots up a post office, they call that going postal. But when a Muslim does it, they call it jihad,” and “Ultimately it was Brother Nidal’s doing, but the command should be held accountable. G.I.’s are like any equipment in the Army. When it breaks, those who were in charge of keeping it fit should be held responsible for it.”

The only area I see where the Army should be held accountable is the fear of reporting suspicious activities coming to light about Nidal Hasan for fear of being labeled a racist or Islamaphobe.

I am disturbed to see Hasan’s actions marginalized by comparing them to those we have termed “going Postal” over the years. Neither can be accepted nor should be excused in any way.

But, with all due respect, those “going Postal” don’t stand on a desk yelling “Allahu Akbar” as they methodically gun down unarmed soldiers in a confined area. Those who went “Postal” did not speak against the Post Office in terms of killing them as acceptable or accusing them of warring against a specific people.

But, where I disagree mostly with Victor Benjamin II, who made those statements is in comparing the two in the first place when a more applicable comparison might be looking back at American Blacks and White Supremacists, primarily the Ku Klux Klan during its heyday in the Southeastern United States.

Reports of lynchings, shootings and whippings of Black Americans for little more than looking at a White woman were not at all uncommon. The Klan enjoyed a large membership hiding behind their white robes and hoods and they also actively perverted the scriptures from our Holy Bible to justify their actions against peoples of color.

Not all Southerners were members of the Klan nor were all Klan members murderers, but can you honestly blame Blacks during that era for looking upon Whites as possible members?

If you were a Black person during those days, would you feel safe and at ease if Klan members who didn’t support the killings stood up and said, “it isn’t the Klan’s fault, we just don’t want the races mixed?”

Yet today, should I look warily upon you, I am a bigot, an Islamaphobe in spite of continual members of Islam sporadically popping up to murder people and invoking the name of your religion.

The Klan was marginalized; their numbers greatly reduced and wiped out in some areas by members who were sickened by the murders by a few. White Southerners infiltrated the Klan and at large risk, exposed them, informed on them and Blacks were granted the rights that should have been theirs all along.

Likewise, we need your help in defeating radical Jihadists. I believe you when you say they do not represent your religion, but I see they come from your midsts. They worship at your Mosques and listen to your Imams. They walk freely amongst your number and sit in your homes. It falls upon the Muslim community as a whole to expel the radicals, to expose the hate preaching and to point out those who approve of the bloodshed to the proper authorities.

Too few of you step up and expel those Imams that preach hatred between us. Not enough of you speak out and condemn these acts. We cannot do it without your help in revealing what is going on around you.

Just like it was the White’s responsibility to eliminate the threat posed by the Ku Klux Klan against Blacks, it is now your responsibility to help eliminate the threat that comes out of your Mosques and communities.

Help us mend the rift of fear before we see more senseless murders committed in the name of God. Help us understand and see the common ground we may share. It is not enough for you to issue statements of disagreement AFTER such an incident. You must help us stop them BEFORE they happen.

I neither intend nor wish you any harm. I wish only peace upon you.

I pray you wish the same for us.
