Suffering From PTLD?

Now I’m not making any excuses for racism, anywhere, but it is becoming clear that there is a previously undiscovered mental condition, if not political ideology, present in the minds of some people, like Reginald Dogan for example,  who has a penchant for recalling the lynchings of the 1960’s back to the early 19th Century, on an almost daily basis.

It’s one thing to never let us forget how evil some people are, but it is quite another to equivocate that with terrorism today to the point that lynchings become more important. Also, that people talking about the terrorist threat (that would be me) are more dangerous to these people than ISIS and al-Qaeda and Islamic goons in general.

Reginald Dogan . . .

ISIS is no bigger threat than FBI, CIA, FDLE, GOP, YOU.

I’m not a psychiatrist. So I’m not sure exactly what to call it, PTLD (Post Traumatic Lynching Disorder) or maybe LDS (Lynching Derangement Syndrome). Whatever it is, it is pretty powerful. Powerful enough to turn a blind eye to what we face today. And by “we” I mean everyone. Of all races.

This disorder manifests itself in denial of reality. In this way:

Alicia Pepper . . .

Not taking anything away from the Holocaust but lynchings & The killing of innocent blacks happened on our own soil. It is still happening on our own soil. I see innocent AMERICAN CITIZENS being murdered as a huge domestic issue. Isis can wait.

911OK, here’s the reality as best I could find from statistics provided by the Tuskegee Institute and The Religion of Peace.

  • terrorist attacks by these Islamist goons are happening “on our own soil.”
  • From 1972 to present, 3102 Americans have been killed by terrorists in 74 attacks on our own soil.
  • Since 1968, zero lynchings have occurred on our own soil.
  • From 1882 to 1968, there were 3445 lynchings of Blacks, 1297 of Whites.

ISIS can wait? For what?

This syndrome, whatever it is, is something that HHS and maybe even our President should look into and address. Anything that takes our eye off of our enemy is a good thing, for the enemy.

President Obama, The Enemy Within

By trying to draw a moral equivalence to the Islamic goons, aka Islamic terrorists of today, President Obama is making a dangerous attempt at rewriting history.

The Crusades was a push back, a fighting back, of an Islamic war. A muslim v cresade battleswar based on Islam, the purpose of which was to take over the world by eliminating any other religion. The Crusades was not a war on Islam. It was a war for survival against the Islamic goons of the time. In Islam, their religion is their government. When the battle was won, it was over. Christians didn’t continue killing “non believers.”

By drawing this moral equivalence, Obama says “that’s not who we are.” Sorry Barack O, but standing our ground and not succumbing to Islamic goons, or Nazi Germany, or Imperial Japan, IS who we are. We will save ourselves from any enemy, and destroy the threat. (And we’ll even do the same for other countries who can’t do it on their own.) So from this standpoint, his rewriting history is setting us up for another attack.

He is trying to assuage us into believing that what the Islamic goons are doing is no big deal . This is clear by the fact that the president won’t even use the words Islamic terrorist to describe the enemy.

An enemy that resurfaced in the last 30 or 40 years. And having a Commander in Chief that refuses to fight our enemy, and refuses to even identify our enemy, means only one of two things. Neither bode well for the United States.

He is either hopelessly ignorant of what is really happening, OR, he is brilliantly paving the way for more victories by the Islamic goons, more attacks in our own country. There is a third possibility. It’s sort of like voting “present.” That no matter what, he is not going to answer the war that radical Islam is waging on us while he is in The White House.  But rather, will leave that up to his successor. The spinmeisters have an acceptable phrase for such cowardice, strategic pause.  He is the anti-war president after all. He ran on that.  In any case, he is on the wrong side. An enemy from within.

The racial spin on this is but a distraction from the enemy we face. This enemy wants to kill us based only on their “religion” and it’s high time we get on our high horse and take it to them. Again.

Feinstein vs CIA

Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, released a report about intelligence gathering by the CIA of the terrorists held at Club Gitmo and elsewhere. The same interrogation techniques that they had been briefed on and approved of. And had even questioned the CIA whether it was enough to get all the information they felt they needed.

There seems to be general agreement, even from Feinstein herself, that the publication of the information contained in the committee report (assembled exclusively by democrats) will put Americans and our allies at risk.

So why would the committee produce such a report about a program that has not been used in eight years, and made “illegal” five years ago, and release it to the public, knowing that it will put Americans and allies around the world in danger?

First of all, look at the report itself. It is not the result of an investigation as we know it. No one involved was interviewed about it. The report is a compilation of emails and communications allegedly between CIA operatives and others. “Others” including foreigners and allies. It is a process that democrats in the intelligence committee have been working on for a decade. Part of the anti-war anti-Bush administration narrative we are all too familiar with. Another chance to beat a dead horse.

Due to the sensitive nature of those communications, the CIA did its own clandestine investigation of the members of Feinstein’s committee, to see whether the information they received was illegally obtained. After all, protecting national secrets and informants is their job. There’s been no suggestion that the CIA obstructed the committee in what it was doing.

Simply put, Senator Feinstein is exacting 40 million dollars worth of political revenge on the CIA for spying on her computers. And is also willing to put Americans and our allies at risk to do it. Nothing more than political masturbation at the country’s expense.

Islam’s War On Islam Growing

Multiple explosions tore through the central mosque in Nigeria’s second-largest city on Friday, killing 35 people, police said.

I’m not hearing any outcry for destroying the Koran’s in these Mosques.

This is Boko Haram. The Islamic terrorist group that is flourishing in Africa. The war on Islam is being perpetrated by Islamists, not Christians.

Check out the Boko Haram News for more of their terrorist attacks.

Iran Wins Another Round With Delay

Ten years and counting. Learning from recent history, when it comes to their nuclear program, Iran knows that this administration is all bark and no bite. The deadline for compliance has come and gone. The solution? Instead of shutting down centrifuges, they have six more months of full-steam ahead development and production. Oh, and the monthly dole-outs of $700 million in frozen funds that began under the temporary nuclear deal agreed on late last year that led to the present talks, continue.

So How’s It Going?

Iraq is falling to pieces, again. ISIS and al-Qaeda are growing. Beheadings have become common and, a new normal. Russia is occupying. The Commander-in-Chief cuts military budgets and personnel while expanding their role. After withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, now that the mid-term elections are over, President Obama is sending the new smaller military back. Third Secretary of Defense in six years resigns. Iran continues to ignore the world in rolling back their nuclear weapons program.  China is eating our lunch. No one wants to eat Michelle Obama’s lunch. Not her lunch, the lunch she wants your kids to eat. The economy on Main St. is treading water. Long-term unemployment is growing. Average family income is falling. The “no-energy” energy policy is increasing energy cost. The Affordable Care Act fraud exposed. And cities are burning.

Express lane to 72 virgins

Much too quick a death for those bastards. They never got a chance to feel themselves dying. It’ll take ground troops to do that. Anyway, glad they’re enjoying their 72 hairy virgins.

Wake the kids, show them what happens to terrorists. Make sure they know that we are one of the few countries in the world capable, but the only country in the world willing, to do it.

Berghdal Investigation Complete, Details After Mid-Terms

Seeing a trend? Obamacare open enrollment postponed until after the election. The verdict in the Berghdal “deserter” investigation is complete, but won’t be announced until after the mid-term election.

Aside from all the other smoke and mirrors the administration does, it seems now that the military has been politicized. Why the delay? Well, aside from the obvious, there’s this . . .

The Army announced on Friday that Dahl completed the initial report on his findings in the Bergdahl case. The report will now be reviewed by the director of the Army staff and senior Army leaders.

“This will be a lengthy process,” an Army spokesman wrote. “It would be inappropriate to speculate on the potential results or the amount of time the review process will take to complete.”

Which, come hell or high water, will take longer than Nov. 4.

Good Grief, More Lies From Susan (the video) Rice

After her promotion to Obama’s National Security Adviser, for lying to cover up the facts surrounding the 9/11/2012 Benghazi attack, Ms. Rice is at it again. On the Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” Susan Rice boldly said of Obama’s coalition of the willing, that Turkey agreed to let the U.S. use an air base in Turkey close to the Syrian border. On Monday, Turkey says, no we didn’t.

That they thought Turkey would go along with the lie to make Obama’s coalition seem to be an actual coalition of military force, is beyond astounding and glaringly “amateur hour” for the Obama administration. It’s embarrassing that there are no adults in The White House.

They all should resign in disgrace.

Lucky for the United States, the mid-term elections are only 3 weeks away. We can begin kicking them out of office then.

For Obama, his State Department and National Security team, we’ll just have to wince at the colossal mistake we made in 2012 to put those fools back in office and hope they get tired of lying to us and realize that no one believes whatever they say, on any subject.

In his case, it is too much to expect President Obama to take responsibility. He’s way too arrogant a person for that.

More Immigration Metrics We’re Not Being Told

It is no longer even arguable that this administration is hell-bent on not securing our border while telling us that it’s never been more secure. One day after posting this On Immigration, Show Me The Metrics, there were four terrorists caught on the Texas border, two each from two different locations. That was on Septermber 10th. One day before the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack.

It was that attack that begat the Department of Homeland Security cabinet position. The purpose of that multi-billion dollar bureaucracy was to streamline communication on threats or potential threats, and to protect the country. So one would think that the capture of four terrorists would elevate to the level and interest of DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson to jump on the details and tell his boss, the president. No way.

His response at a House Homeland Security meeting yesterday was . . .

Chaffetz: “Since you took office, Secretary Johnson, on December 23, are you aware of any apprehensions of suspected or known terrorists who were trying to come to our country illegally?”

Johnson: “Umm. That’s an important question. Uh, attempting to come to this country?”

Chaffetz: “Who came across our border illegally. Did you ever apprehend anybody who was a known terrorist, a suspected terrorist, somebody who had ties to a terrorist organization?”

Johnson: “Sitting here right now, um, no specific case comes to mind; that doesn’t mean there is none. Um, uh, perhaps, perhaps Director Comey can think of one. Siting here right now none comes to mind but that doesn’t mean there isn’t one. Nor does that mean there’s no investigation of one either.”

Chaffetz: “I have reason to believe that on September 10th there were actually four individuals trying to cross through the Texas border, who were apprehended at two different stations that do have ties to known terrorist organizations in the Middle East. Are you aware of that?

Johnson: “Uh, I’ve heard reports to that effect. Uh, I don’t know the accuracy of the reports, or uh, how much creedence to give them. But I’ve heard reports to that effect.

As if that incompetence isn’t enough, an internal (as in we’re not supposed to know the truth) DHS report shows these disturbing metrics.

During the 351 days of fiscal year 2014, there were 466,000 apprehensions of illegals, also 157,012 illegals that “got away,” and 142,630 individuals that were reported “turn backs”. The compilation of apprehensions represented people from 143 different countries. Additionally, the sensors that are placed in locations primarily in the southwest, recorded a jump of over 1,000,000 hits from fiscal year 2013 until now.

Think that’s bad? It’s worse. Much worse.

According to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report mentioned by Congressman Chaffetz, there is only a 6% operational control of our border. Which means, the numbers quoted above are likely only a very small representation of the real traffic of illegals from all across the world, including the Middle East, which are easily gaining access to our country.

Chaffetz: “Previously the GAO had indicated that there was only a 6% operational control of the border. What percentage, what is the operational control of the border at this time?”

Johnson: “Um, I don’t have that number off-hand. I do agree with you that the challenge of those coming from countries other than Mexico, particularly into the Rio Grand Valley sector is one I’m very concerned about. It’s something I’ve been concerned about since taking office in January. I’ve seen it myself at our detention center in Brownsville when I visited there in January. There were something like 80 nationalities of illegal migrants present there.

Not only is the administration not taking their job seriously, in the last 13 years, they’ve made no attempt to secure the border.

The explanation is horribly simple. The protection and security of the country is secondary to the protection and security of the Democratic party.
