Playing Politics With Your Life

by lewwaters

Taurus 2In what I can only describe as placing political gain over the safety of American citizens, Democrats have once again shown that nothing matters much to them but political power as they now play political games to score points over actually addressing the problem of terrorism.

From the Hill we read the headline, Dems shift terror debate to guns and the words

“Democrats are seeking to limit the political fallout from the attack in San Bernardino, Calif., by pressing for legislation that would prevent terrorism suspects from buying a gun.”
“Leaders in the party think they have a winning message in pushing legislation that would ban gun sales to people on the federal terror watch list, and have made the bill a focal point of their response to the shooting.”

Will the Left Wake-up Now?

by lewwaters

Frenchman CryingYesterday, as I was posting the previous post, word began breaking over news networks of what we today know was another horrific act of terror from ISIS in Paris as they systematically slaughtered innocent people again.

I refrained from posting on it yesterday, although I did make several comments on my facebook page, as anything I put down here would amount to little more than an anger filled rant.

Even if justifiable, my anger over so many innocents being slaughtered by ISIS on the very same day Obama came out claiming how they “were contained” would not have come across in how I choose to pattern my writing.

“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.

September 10 – Again

by lewwaters

World Trade CenterThirteen years ago, all seemed well. The world was at relative peace, we thought. We went about our business that Monday, went to work, enjoyed our families, watched our favorite television shows, ate dinner and went to bed, looking forward to another week in our lives.

Tuesday morning changed all of that as we woke up the horrific scene of high jacked aircraft flown into buildings in New York and Washington D.C.

It didn’t take long to realize we were under attack and all air traffic was grounded out of fear of more high jacked aircraft being flown into other buildings in other cities.

The world hasn’t been the same since.

CAIR Director Schooled on Radical Islam

by lewwaters

The Palm Beach Post covered the event clearing up some of the exchange drowned out by Rep. Wests supporters in the audience.

CAIR South Florida Executive Director Nezar Hamze. Hamze held a copy of the Koran and asked West to “show me one verse in this Koran where it says to attack America, attack Americans, or attack innocent people.”

West replied, “You do have the Verse of the Sword that is in there and there is talk about killing infidels,” referring to verse 9:5 of the Koran, “Fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them: seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war).”

West listed off several episodes in history where radical Muslims have attacked leading up to the Ft. Hood massacre and September 11, 2001 and reminding Hamze that all attackers shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) as they commenced their attack.

West, a retired Army Lt. Colonel and Iraq War Veteran continued, “I’ve been on the battlefield, my friend. OK? Don’t try to blow sunshine up my butt.”

As Hamze retorted “I am ashamed to be here with all of these people, when you attack Islam, you attack –” West cut him off stating, “You attacked us. You attacked us. I went to Muslim countries to try to defend the freedom of Muslim people. Don’t come up here to try to criticize me. Put the microphone down and go home,” drawing loud approval from the audience.

We could sure use more like Allen West in government.

Ron Paul, Still Blaming America

by lewwaters

Ron Paul, whiner extraordinaire, known for blaming America for the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that murdered 3,000 of our citizens, is at it again. Or is it still?

According to Paul, the “mess” in Egypt is once again, “America’s fault.”

From the DallaNews.com, Paul says, “This is a typical example of what happens when we run on intervention-type foreign policies. We get in the middle of these fights. We’ve been in the middle of this for 30 years now. We’ve given Mubarak $60 billion. We’re responsible for a lot of the mess that is over there.”

His answer? “I wouldn’t just cut off Egyptian aid. I’d cut off all aid to the Middle East and maybe that whole area would be better off for it.”

Yes, Iran would step in deeper, Israel would be annihilated and every gain made in the last few years helping the Iraqi people find freedom and set on the path towards self-determination would be squandered, not to mention the sacrifices made by our Brave Troops completely invalidated, once again.

I am sure the Muslim Brotherhood is pleased to receive the support of congressman Ron Paul.

Geriatric Terrorists Thwarted By Exam Gloves And Radiation

by lewwaters

Submitted by Bruce R. McCain

Last weekend I visited my 82-year old dad and brother in San Diego, took in a couple of football games and experienced first-hand the latest efforts by the Obama administration to keep us safe in the skies. My journey began at Portland International Airport which does not yet have the new full body virtual nudity machines installed. I sailed though the metal detector without a hitch and without being pulled aside for the invasive pat down search.

I soon sat down with my coffee cup in the large waiting area in Concourse C, listening to beautiful live piano music as planes took off on runway 10R outside the window behind me. What I witnessed next was both sad and surreal, but left me seething nonetheless. To my left a frail elderly man in a wheelchair was pulled over for the invasive pat down search. It took two male TSA agents to lift this near invalid man onto his feet where they held him in place as a third TSA agent wearing blue gloves ran his hands all over the helpless old man’s body, including into his crotch from both sides. At the same time on my right, an equally elderly woman using a walker got the same treatment from female TSA agents. I don’t know if these two aged travelers were husband and wife or I was merely witnessing a bizarre coincidence.

Obama Commemorates Mumbai Terrorist Attacks, Forgets Fort Hood

by lewwaters

Barack Obama, beginning his trip to India and Pakistan, stopped off at Mumbai, India to commemorate the terrorist attacks of November 26, 2008 that killed 173 people.

ABC News

Obama spoke in from the Taj, the hotel where much of the attack was carried out saying, “I know there’s been a great deal of commentary on our decision to begin our visit here, in this dynamic city, at this historic hotel. And to those who have asked whether this is intended to send a message, my answer is simple absolutely.”

He continued, “We’ll never forget the awful imagines of 26/11 including the flames from this hotel that lit up the night sky. We’ll never forget how the world, including the American people watched and grieved with all of India. But the resolve and the resilience of the Indian people during those attacks stood in stark contrast with the savagery of the terrorists.”

I applaud Obama on his message to the Indian people, but wouldn’t it have been nice if he or his staff had remembered the events of November 5, 2009 as well and told the American people he is charged with leading that he will never forget the heinous attack and murder of 12 unarmed soldiers by a radical Jihadist US Army Major at Ft. Hood, Texas that was charged with helping US Soldiers returning from war?

Instead, Obama was traveling to India to tell them we will never forget the attack on their soil on the very day 12 of our soldiers we gunned down in cold blood last year.

Shouldn’t an attack from within on our own soil be as important to the man elected to be president? Wouldn’t it be great to once again have a president who showed as much concern for America as he does others?

Newsweek Thinks, “It’s clear we overreacted to 9/11”

by lewwaters

I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised to see the left now crying how the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on our country really wasn’t all that bad. After all, since pretty much right after the collapse of the buildings, the anti-war left has been opposed to defending our nation and morons like Texas Congressman Ron Paul have been steadily blaming the attacks on America.

But this article from Newsweek, authored by a naturalized citizen from the nation of India does surprise me somewhat. Not that he is considered a far leftist, but in that originally, he was in support of the fight against terrorists.

The author, Fareed Zakaria penned a cover article shortly after the horrific attacks, “Why Do They Hate Us?” where he said,

“bin Laden and his followers are not an isolated cult like Aum Shinrikyo or the Branch Davidians or demented loners like Timothy McVeigh and the Unabomber. They come out of a culture that reinforces their hostility, distrust and hatred of the West–and of America in particular. This culture does not condone terrorism but fuels the fanaticism that is at its heart. To say that Al Qaeda is a fringe group may be reassuring, but it is false.”

In an April 2003 New York Magazine article on him, Zakaria said of the Iraq invasion,

“The place is so dysfunctional, any stirring of the pot is good. America’s involvement in the region is for the good.”

Yet, within 2 months he was penning articles opposing the very actions he supported and writing articles critical of President Bush criticizing him for the

“failure to conduct diplomacy and attempt, or even pretend to attempt, to build an international consensus for our action in the Gulf.”

By 2007, he adamantly opposed the very surge that has now brought Iraq some semblance of a beginning to self determination. In 2008, he admitted it had been a success.

Now, as we approach the anniversary of that horrific day, he writes What America Has Lost, It’s clear we overreacted to 9/11 where he begins his screed,

“Nine years after 9/11, can anyone doubt that Al Qaeda is simply not that deadly a threat? Since that gruesome day in 2001, once governments everywhere began serious countermeasures, Osama bin Laden’s terror network has been unable to launch a single major attack on high-value targets in the United States and Europe. While it has inspired a few much smaller attacks by local jihadis, it has been unable to execute a single one itself. Today, Al Qaeda’s best hope is to find a troubled young man who has been radicalized over the Internet, and teach him to stuff his underwear with explosives.”

Zakaria impresses me that he would like for all of us to believe only Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden are behind radical Islamic terrorism, which is pure folly. Al Qaeda is but one radical group and perhaps with the coordinated attacks of September 11, 2001, the most successful.

Apparently he has forgotten, or ignores, the 2008 Mumbai attacks in his own native India “killing at least 173 people and wounding at least 308” by the Islamist militant terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba.

Zakaria originally labeled himself a “conservative,” but it is clear he is now anything but. Troubling in seeking the basis for his views is in reading the New York magazine article linked above where his family is identified as “practicing Muslims” and that “He’s an Indian-born, Yale- and Harvard-educated Muslim.”

Is it possible that he is now in agreement with a take over of America by Islam? One could easily assume that with his article advocating the construction of the Ground Zero Mosque within the shadow of the rubble of the World Trade Center attacked on September 11, 2001 as he says,

“I believe we should promote Muslim moderates right here in America.”

I have my very serious doubts he would really call for the promotion of Christianity or Judaism “right here in America” by calling for the construction of a Cathedral or a Synagogue on the site.

While our First Amendment does grant us freedom of religion, it does not call for the promotion of any religion within America. It only gives individuals equal rights to practice their religion.

While Zakaria enjoys the freedom of speech granted by our constitution, he is becoming a dangerous person in that he seems to have joined the voices of those who wish to lull America back to sleep to the all too real threat of radical Islamist groups seeking world domination and the destruction of the west.

Hence, in reply to his comment on “overreaction to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks,” I’d like to recall for him,

Nov. 4, 1979 – Iran Hostage Crisis, After President Carter agreed to admit the Shah of Iran into the US, Iranian radicals seized the US Embassy in Tehran and took 66 American diplomats hostage. Thirteen hostages were soon released, but the remaining 53 were held until their release Jan. 20, 1981.

August 1985 – A car bomb at a U.S. military base in Frankfurt, Germany kills two and injures 20. A U.S. soldier murdered for his identity papers is found a day after the explosion.

October 1985 – Palestinian terrorists hijack the cruise liner Achille Lauro (in response to the Israeli attack on PLO headquarters in Tunisia) Leon Klinghoffer, an elderly, wheelchair-bound American, is killed and thrown overboard.

Dec. 21, 1988 – A bomb destroys Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. All 259 people aboard the Boeing 747 are killed including 189 Americans, as are 11 people on the ground.

February 1993 – A bomb in a van explodes in the underground parking garage in New York’s World Trade Center, killing six people and wounding 1,042.

Nov. 13, 1995 – A car-bomb in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia kills seven people, five of them American military and civilian advisers for National Guard training. The “Tigers of the Gulf,” “Islamist Movement for Change,” and “Fighting Advocates of God” claim responsibility.

June 25, 1996 – A bomb aboard a fuel truck explodes outside a U.S. air force installation in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. 19 U.S. military personnel are killed in the Khobar Towers housing facility, and 515 are wounded, including 240 Americans.

Aug. 7, 1998 – Terrorist bombs destroy the U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. In Nairobi, 12 Americans are among the 291 killed, and over 5,000 are wounded, including 6 Americans. In Dar es Salaam, one U.S. citizen is wounded among the 10 killed and 77 injured.

Oct. 12, 2000 – A terrorist bomb damages the destroyer USS Cole in the port of Aden, Yemen, killing 17 sailors and injuring 39.

And of course, the horrific events of September 11, 2001.

No Mr. Zakaria, we did not over react. The country is losing its will to fight and defend ourselves with your help.

Do We Need Any More Reason to Seal The Border?

by lewwaters

It remains alarming that the flood of ILLEGAL aliens is allowed to continue through our porous borders. Cries of poor disadvantaged people seeking a better life are only a portion of those coming across.

Drug dealers, gang members and even some suspects of radical Islamic terrorism have made their way through too.

And now, we read Mexico thwarts Hezbollah bid to set up South American network

Mexico foiled an attempt by Hezbollah to establish a network in South America, a Kuwaiti newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Hezbollah operatives employed Mexicans nationals with family ties to Lebanon to set up the network, designed to target Israel and the West, the Al-Seyassah daily said.
According to the report, Mexican police mounted a surveillance operation on the group’s leader, Jameel Nasr, who traveled frequently to Lebanon to receive information and instructions from Hezbollah commanders there.
Police say Nasr also made frequent trips to other countries in Latin America, including a two-month stay in Venezuela in the summer of 2008.

Nasr was living in Tijuana, Mexico at the time of his arrest, the report said.

Ask yourself just why would a Hezbollah leader be setting up a terrorist network in South and Central America, headquartered in Tijuana, just across the border?

It is long past time both parties stopped the bickering back and forth and pushing for granting another amnesty, which would have given any terrorists that may have already snuck across the border, legitimacy.

SEAL THE BORDER NOW!!

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!

You Say Right-Wing Talk Radio Is Over The Top?

by lewwaters

In all the claims, trumped up or close to real, I have never heard anything as outrageous, divisive or just over the top as was left-wing talk radio host, Mike Malloy on his program, January 5, 2009.

What he says,

“Now, the inquiry, the questions are being raised as to whether or not this is not a deliberate attempt to embarrass – ah, that’s not quite a strong enough word, but let’s start there – embarrass the Obama administration.”

“[T]here are forces alive in this country, who are very active in this country, very wealthy in this country, who want to see Obama fail no matter what and the idea of killing 200 to 300 people on board a jetliner in order to make the point is nothing. It means nothing.”

“My gut feeling is this was deliberate. This was deliberately done in order to put the Obama administration in such a vice grip, that it’s impossible to get anything done, to raise so much fear – this is what Republicans do. This is what they do.”

How nutty would it have been had we came out and claimed Al Gore and the Democrats plotted, planned and carried out September 11, 2001?

Last I heard, these people also claim Bush and Republicans caused September 11, 2001.

Outrageous doesn’t even begin to express how stupid and reckless such a comment is.

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.

Vancouver Based Dotster Still Under Fire For Terrorist Hosting

by lewwaters

Dotster, a Vancouver, Washington based Web Host and Domain Registrar Company has once again come under fire for hosting a web site linked to a known radical Jihadist terrorist group.

Dotster, located near Westfield Shopping Center (formerly the Vancouver Mall), was first linked as a web host to a Somalia Al Shabaab terrorist group using the domain of kataaib.net earlier this year.

kataaibnet-page-logo

It was May 2008 when the Columbian ran an Op-Ed mentioning Bill Warner, a Sarasota, Florida private investigator’s effort to have Dotster shut down the web site.

Citing First Amendment concerns, Dotster CEO, Clint Page said, “We can’t just arbitrarily go in and shut down sites based on what someone finds offensive,” adding that the problem with Warner’s approach is the danger of it leading to abuses and resulting in shutting down sites that are Political Advocates, the ACLU or even the NRA.

An odd disclaimer from them considering that in April 2003, Dotster had no problem pulling down the web site BoycottHollywood.com and voiding their contract with them, forcing them to move to another web host.

Also in May 2008, the Jawa Report wrote of the Columbian’s first article by Courtney Sherwood, referring to Bill Warner’s group as a “group of self-described anti-terrorist vigilantes.”

In that article, Brian Unruh, chief financial officer at Dotster was quoted as saying,

We are not in a position to judge and be a jury on what content may be legal or acceptable,” adding, “The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects the right to freedom of speech and expression, and for that reason Dotster attempts to be very careful about balancing the rights of its customers with other concerns.”

Was that a consideration with BoycottHollywood.com, just 4 years earlier?

Apparently Dotster must have felt there was insufficient evidence that Al-Shabaab was part of the kataaib.net domain they host and claims to have forwarded the information from Warner to the “right authorities.”

The matter was dropped and sat until recently. Once again, the Jawa Report records a translated page supplied by the NEFA foundation of an intercepted message from Al-Shabaab, ostensibly “correcting” an Al Jazeera article claiming they were in opposition to the Somalia Pirates in the news lately for several high profile ship high jacking.

While the translated communiqué focuses primarily on “setting the record straight” about the group not opposing the pirates, directing Al Jazeera and other interested persons to their PR Web Page, they state,

The movement has an official website [www.kataaib.net] which carries our official statements. Additionally, we have an official wing that manages all of our audio, video, and written releases. That wing is known as the ‘Sada al-Jihad Media Center’ and it belongs to the Global Islamic Media Front’.” (emphasis added)

Returning to Dotster’s own “whois” page, searching for kataaib.net reveals,

Just to be clear, I do not subscribe to any notion that Dotster knowingly supports or engages in any terrorist activities, by Al-Shabbat or any other group. Dotster, like many other companies, has millions of customers. Not all customers are what we would deem “good customers.”

Earlier this year Dotster seemed unable to link Al-Shabaab, a known terrorist group to their client, kataaib.net. Given the claim intercepted and translated above, Al-Shabaab has now provided a clear link between the two.

Perhaps now Dotster will be able to “void their contract” with this terrorist group with as much ease as they did with an American group drawing attention to the Liberalism of Hollywood actors.
