This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Obamination: Flight 253 Revisited

The White House Blog has links related to the attempted bombing of Flight 253.


In summarizing his national security review, President Barack Hussein Obama trotted out his standard litany of lies. Because those lies must be identified and refuted, I will present them in block quote format interspersed with my commentary.
And finally, I'm ordering an immediate effort to strengthen the criteria used to add individuals to our terrorist watchlists, especially the "no fly" list. We must do better in keeping dangerous people off airplanes, while still facilitating air travel.
Occam's Razor and the KISS rule apply to this issue; only one criterion is required. The no-fly list should consist of the set of persons who profess Islam. Everyone who believes that he has a divine right and duty to conquer & dominate the world or to anger or injure kuffar is dangerous. Anyone whose relationship to his deity is that of hired killer is dangerous. Anyone to whom our blood is not sacred is dangerous.
At the Amsterdam airport, Abdulmutallab was subjected to the same screening as other passengers. He was required to show his documents -- including a valid U.S. visa. His carry-on bag was X-rayed. He passed through a metal detector. But a metal detector can't detect the kind of explosives that were sewn into his clothes.
How do you hope to detect explosives swallowed, inserted or surgically implanted? Are you going to install MRI scanners in every airport and run every passenger through them? How much would that cost and how long would it take?
Over the past two weeks, we've been reminded again of the challenge we face in protecting our country against a foe that is bent on our destruction. And while passions and politics can often obscure the hard work before us, let's be clear about what this moment demands. We are at war. We are at war against al Qaeda, a far-reaching network of violence and hatred that attacked us on 9/11, that killed nearly 3,000 innocent people, and that is plotting to strike us again. And we will do whatever it takes to defeat them.
You failed to identify the enemy, which is Islam. Al-Qaeda is an offshoot of al-Ikhwan al-Muslimeen, which is Islam. There are only two ways to defeat Islam, and you are not willing to engage in either of them. Islam's war against the human race will end when all the Muslims are apostates, converts or dead. Our defeat and death is the other possibility. Which do you prefer?

Either Muslims cease believing / living or we will suffer continual attacks and eventual conquest. Will you launch an intensive, extensive & prolonged ideological attack against Islam, exposing Allah as the ultimate evil, Muhammad as a pederast, murderer & genocidal warlord and the Qur'an as inculcation of hatred & incitement to war? If not, then how will you kill them all?
And we know that the vast majority of Muslims reject al Qaeda. But it is clear that al Qaeda increasingly seeks to recruit individuals without known terrorist affiliations not just in the Middle East, but in Africa and other places, to do their bidding. That's why I've directed my national security team to develop a strategy that addresses the unique challenges posed by lone recruits. And that's why we must communicate clearly to Muslims around the world that al Qaeda offers nothing except a bankrupt vision of misery and death –- including the murder of fellow Muslims –- while the United States stands with those who seek justice and progress.
How do you :know" that "the vast majority of Muslims reject al-Qaeda"? Did you conduct a scientific opinion survey? Every Muslim has a terrorist affiliation! Terrorism is an intrinsic sacrament of Islam; 3:151, 8:12, 8:57, 8:60, 33:26, 59:2, 59:13 & Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220 make that fact crystal clear.

It is Islam that offers the bankrupt vision of misery and death in this world, and a carnal garden with rivers of water, honey, milk & wine and trees full of low hanging fruit always in season with perpetual virgins in the next. To obtain admission to the celestial carnal garden, Muslims must participate in killing and conquering us. To Muslims, world conquest is justice & progress.
To advance that progress, we've sought new beginnings with Muslim communities around the world, one in which we engage on the basis of mutual interest and mutual respect, and work together to fulfill the aspirations that all people share -- to get an education, to work with dignity, to live in peace and security. That's what America believes in. That's the vision that is far more powerful than the hatred of these violent extremists.
How is appeasement a new beginning? There is no mutual interest nor mutual respect. Islam is interested only in conquering us and they do not respect us, to Islam, we rank with corpses and feces.

Muslims do not share your aspirations. They look not to the life of this world, but to the next, where they will enjoy the gardens or suffer in the fire. Participation in Jihad to conquer us determines where they will spend eternity.

The shibboleth: violent extremists implies that Islam is peaceful; that violence is the exception, not the rule. Nothing can be further from the truth. Muslims are purchased by Allah for the purpose of doing his wet work. This fact is documented in Surah at-Taubah 111. Allah's wet work is world conquest, commanded in Surah al-Anfal 39 & Surah at-Taubah 29. Those Jihad imperatives are codified in Shari'ah, Book O, Chapter 9, ¶ 8 & 9 of Reliance of the Traveller. Search for o9.8. Jihad is the "original religion" of Islam; If Muslims abandon it in favor of agriculture as a way of life, they will be cursed with disgrace prevailing over them until they return to Jihad. If you have any doubts about the meaning of Jihad (making war on disbelievers) open Reliance of the Traveller to o9.0 and read it carefully. Compare that text to the definition provided in the translator's footnote to Surah al-Baqarah 190.
Here at home, we will strengthen our defenses, but we will not succumb to a siege mentality that sacrifices the open society and liberties and values that we cherish as Americans, because great and proud nations don't hunker down and hide behind walls of suspicion and mistrust. That is exactly what our adversaries want, and so long as I am President, we will never hand them that victory. We will define the character of our country, not some band of small men intent on killing innocent men, women and children.
It is not possible to win a war defensively. Winning requires taking the offense, destroying enemy assets and killing enemy combatants until the enemy is so devastated that they lose the will to fight. Islam will never lose the will to fight. Promotion and perpetuation of war is Islam's purpose, because Moe designed it for that purpose. Moe got his income through accrual of spoils and tribute. Continuous war was the source of his cash flow. If you doubt the facts exposed in this paragraph, read these resources carefully: Islam's Mercenary Mission, Jihad.chm, Islamic Supremacism. Avoidance of suspicion, distrust & paranoia requires removing Islam's fifth column from our midst. Western Civilization must be made a Muslim free zone.

And in this cause, every one of us -- every American, every elected official -- can do our part. Instead of giving into cynicism and division, let's move forward with the confidence and optimism and unity that defines us as a people. For now is not a time for partisanship, it's a time for citizenship -- a time to come together and work together with the seriousness of purpose that our national security demands.

National security and survival should not be partisan issues. Indeed, they are not, both major parties put traitors in the White House. Both Democrat and Republican Presidents have lied about the identity and nature of the enemy. Both have conducted the war with suicidal idiocy. Our national purpose is to live securely, with liberty and prosperity, as a shining example for the world to emulate. Submission to enslavement is not our national purpose. Pouring our blood and treasure down the sewer is not our national purpose. Defeat is not our national purpose.

That's what it means to be strong in the face of violent extremism. That's how we will prevail in this fight. And that's how we will protect our country and pass it -- safer and stronger -- to the next generation.

We can only prevail in this conflict by making the enemy extinct. Until Islam ceases to exist, either through apostasy, attrition or death, there will be neither peace nor security in this world; both life and liberty will be at risk.

KSM Trial Petition

Human Events and Red State have created an on line petition demanding reversal of the decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and four other terrorists in New York City. They list seven relevant points bearing on the idiocy of the decision.

  1. jurisprudence: bad precedent
  2. risk of technical acquittal
  3. role inversion, putting the U.S.A. on trial
  4. reversion to 9/10 criminal offense paradigm
  5. revelation of state secrets
  6. excessive security expense
  7. attractive target for renewed attack
Jed Babbin Editor of Human Events, has written an excellent editorial which clarifies the issues very forcefully. .A Facebook group has been created to support the petition.

If you understand and care about the consequences of applying the law enforcement paradigm to acts of war, then you will join with me and 20,297 others who have signed the on line petition demanding that the terrorists be tried by military tribunals far from our vulnerable cities.

Hillary Clinton: Secretary of Malarkey

Radio news reports of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's remarks about terrorism and economic development were insufficient basis for a blog post. I found the search to be difficult until I located a New York Times article by Nicholas Kristof which provide a link to Foreign Policy, which published the Secretary's prepared remarks delivered to the Center for Global Development in Washington, D.C..

News reports gave the impression that Secretary Clinton had implied that terrorism is a function of poverty & deprivation, which can be ameliorated by economic development. In skimming the prepared remarks, the sound bite stood out like a sore thumb

We cannot stop terrorism or defeat the ideologies of violent extremism when hundreds of millions of young people see a future with no jobs, no hope, and no way ever to catch up to the developed world.
Let us apply logic to that statement. Hati is impoverished, with little hope for the future. Are Hatians detonating themselves? Are they hijacking aircraft and flying them into office towers? If terrorism is a function of poverty, why aren't Hatians engaged in terrorist acts?

Were the five American Muslims who went to Pakistan to join the Jihad hopeless, uneducated victims of poverty? One of them was a dental student, others were employed. They had sufficient money to purchase expensive tickets to fly to Pakistan. How about Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab? Is the British educated son of a Nigerian Banker impoverished? How could he afford a ticket to America?

Ayman al-Zawahiri is a pediatrician. Usama bin Laden and Khalid Sheikh Mohammad are engineers. Why are those professionals who could earn good incomes engaged in terrorism while the impoverished Hatians are not? What do Abdulmutallab, Zawahiri & bin Ladin have in common? Could it be Islam?

How could Islam motivate Muslims to engage in terrorism? [Emphasis added.]
  • 33:21. Indeed in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad ) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allâh and the Last Day and remembers Allâh much.
If a Muslim wants to meet Allah and gain admission to Paradise, he should emulate Moe. What did Moe do that they should emulate?
  • Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand." Abu Huraira added: Allah's Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).
  • Bukhari Volume 9, Book 90, Number 333:

    Narrated Al-A'rai:

    Abu Huraira said, Allah's Apostle said, "By Him in Whose Hand my life is, I would love to fight in Allah's Cause and then get martyred and then resurrected (come to life) and then get martyred and then resurrected (come to life) and then get martyred, and then resurrected (come to life) and then get martyred and then resurrected (come to life)." Abu Huraira used to repeat those words three times and I testify to it with Allah's Oath.

  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
    Narrated Anas bin Malik:
    Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah." Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, "O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?" He replied, "Whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have."
Moe is a role model for Muslims to emulate; a terrorist who craved serial martyrdom. He was also ordered to fight the people until they submit to Islam. Since we have not submitted to Islam, Muslims who seek admission to Paradise must emulate Moe by fighting us, using terrorism as a battle tactic.

In fact, the Qur'an reveals that terrorism is an intrinsic sacrament, foundational to Islam, not a modern innovation.
  • 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).
  • 8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, "Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes."
  • 8:57. So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson.
  • 8:60. Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. [Abdullah Yusuf Ali]
  • 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.
  • 59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Bani An-Nadir) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allah! But Allah's (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).
  • 59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Bani An-Nadir) breasts than Allah. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allah).
Muslims who obey Allah and emulate Moe will engage in terrorism.

Which is better, poor terrorists who can't afford explosives and airline tickets or rich terrorists who can build bombs and travel at will? Facilitating economic development in Islamic nations only serves to improve their ability to attack us.

Is it possible that a graduate of the Yale law school is unable to get a clue? If the Secretary of State reads this without obtaining a clue, then we must assume that malfeasance is involved.

The Low-Carbon Fuel Standard

To learn more about the economic and strategic risks associated with an LCFS, visit www.secureourfuels.org. You can find detailed fact sheets here: http://secureourfuels.org/research. If you want gasoline to be plentiful and reasonably priced, use this link to send a message to your Representative & Senators. Send a message to Congress: demand that they vote against the Low Carbon Fuel Standard scam.

If you don't care about escalating fuel prices, if you don't care about fuel scarcity, if you don't care about the negative economic and security impact of decreased domestic oil production and increased dependence on Arab oil imports then ignore this post and do nothing.

The Low-Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) is a scam designed to make the cost of motor fuel spiral, in the vain hope of making alternative fuels more attractive. Of course, there are no real alternatives available in industrial quantities, and there won't be in the near future. It boils down to another redistribution of wealth scheme.

The Threat Is Real. President Obama, as Illinois’ junior member of the Senate, introduced LCFS legislation last Congress,i and has strongly supported action in California to ban certain North American fuels.ii Rep. Jay Inslee (D-WA),iii a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR),iv of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources panel, have both offered LCFS legislation this Congress. And Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), the third-ranking Republican in the Senate, continues to advocate for an LCFS.v The likelihood of a one-size-fits-all low-carbon fuel mandate becoming law – perhaps as a part of broader cap-and-trade legislation – is real.

Obamination: Flight 253 Part 1

On Dec. 28, '09, President Obama made a statement about the attempt to destroy Flight 253, adding remarks about the uprising in Iran. I quote the remarks about the terror attack, interspersing my comments.

Statement by the President on the Attempted Attack on Christmas Day and Recent Violence in Iran
Kaneohe Bay Marine Base, Kaneohe, Hawaii
10:01 A.M. HAST

THE PRESIDENT: Hey, guys. Good morning, everybody. I just want to take a few minutes to update the American people on the attempted terrorist attack that occurred on Christmas Day and the steps we're taking to ensure the safety and security of the country.

The safety and security of the USA can not be ensured short of the total and complete elimination of the enemy which seeks to harm us. Obamination is not taking any steps to reach that strategic objective.

The investigation is ongoing and I spoke again this morning with Attorney General Eric Holder, the Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, and my Counterterrorism and Homeland Security Advisor John Brennan. I asked them to keep -- continue monitoring the situation, to keep the American people and members of Congress informed.

Investigations only waste precious time and money. We already know that the perpetrator is a Muslim engaged in an act of Jihad. Nothing more need to be known. Islamic doctrine and law require a continuing series of attacks against disbelievers until the entire world is conquered and subjugated. Eliminating Islam is the only solution to this problem. There is no other way to prevent Islam from attacking us.

Here's what we know so far. On Christmas Day, Northwest Airlines Flight 253 was en route from Amsterdam, Netherlands to Detroit. As the plane made its final approach to Detroit Metropolitan Airport, a passenger allegedly tried to ignite an explosive device on his body, setting off a fire.

Allegedly? Sweet loving Jesus Christ! A photograph of the remains of the perpetrator's underwear have been posted on the web! The explosive material has been identified. He did not attempt to ignite the explosive, he attempted to detonate it and only succeeded in igniting it. If the detonation had been successful, Obamination would be assuring us that the crash resulted from an accident, not from enemy action.

Thanks to the quick and heroic actions of passengers and crew, the suspect was immediately subdued, the fire was put out, and the plane landed safely. The suspect is now in custody and had been charged with attempting to destroy an aircraft. And a full investigation has been launched into this attempted act of terrorism and we will not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable.

Thanks to the failure of the detonating device & methodology, the bomb burned instead of exploding. Had the device functioned as designed, no intervention would have been possible; the entire aircraft would have been destroyed, with the lives of all aboard and perhaps many deaths and much property damage on the ground.

Why in Hell is the perpetrator charged as a criminal offender when his ignition of the device was an act of war? Why is he being given a lawyer, a trial and the rights, privileges & immunities of a citizen, which he does not deserve? Why was he not given a bullet lubricated in lard and a shroud made from pig skin which he richly deserves? Because we elected a traitor instead of a President, that's why!

This was a serious reminder of the dangers that we face and the nature of those who threaten our homeland. Had the suspect succeeded in bringing down that plane it could have killed nearly 300 passengers and crew, innocent civilians preparing to celebrate the holidays with their families and friends.

What dangers do we face? Who threatens us? Why do they threaten us? Why won't Obamination provide clear and specific answers to these foundational interrogatories? We are threatened with the imposition of a series of injuries & insults, resulting in bleeding our society to death and impoverishing it; destroying our will and ability to resist subjugation & enslavement.

Islam threatens us. Not extremists; not radicals; not a tiny minority: Islam! No elected politician will acknowledge the fact that orthodox Islamic doctrine, exegeses, tradition & law require the conquest and subjugation of the entire world. They will not bother to go to Wikipedia and look up the Barbary War, in which entry they will find a clear and concise explanation of why Muslims attacked us, beginning in the 18th century. They won't read the Qur'an & hadith, where they would learn the same truth nor will they read Reliance of the Traveller. Instead they will waste millions of dollars on investigations that will settle nothing.

The American people should be assured that we are doing everything in our power to keep you and your families safe and secure during this busy holiday season. Since I was first notified of this incident I've ordered the following actions to be taken to protect the American people and to secure air travel.

We can only be secured by eliminating Islam from the face of the earth. The doctrines which require Muslims to attack us must cease to be propagated and believed. For every new security measure you put in effect, Islam will devise a counter measure or work around. If you want to keep our flights safe and secure, then keep Muslims on the ground, off those flights. Prohibiting Muslims from flying to or over our territory would be much more practical than the Mickey Mouse security procedures which hamper and harass fliers.

First, I directed that we take immediate steps to ensure the safety of the traveling public. We made sure that all flights still in the air were secure and could land safely. We immediately enhanced screening and security procedures for all flights, domestic and international. We added federal air marshals to flights entering and leaving the United States. And we're working closely in this country -- federal, state and local law enforcement -- with our international partners.

You did not ban Muslims from aircraft. You did nothing beneficial. You have no means to detect a suppository or bolus inside a bomber's body. Air marshals can not do anything to stop a bomb from going off once the detonator is engaged. This is war, not a criminal case. Yemen, Saudi Arabia, etc. are not our partners or allies, they are our enemies. They oppose terrorists seeking to dethrone them and support terrorists seeking to destroy us.

Second, I've ordered two important reviews because it's absolutely critical that we learn from this incident and take the necessary measures to prevent future acts of terrorism. The first review involves our watch list system, which our government has had in place for many years to identify known and suspected terrorists so that we can prevent their entry into the United States.

Why did you not learn from Project Bojinka? Why did you not learn from Richard Reid? Why did you not learn from the plan to hide bombs in baby bottles? You will never learn because you have no desire to learn. You are a traitor, one of the enemy in our midst, improperly elected to high office, of which you are most undeserving.

If they are Muslim, they are potential terrorists, and there is no way to differentiate the real from the potential until they explode. Their entry can best be prevented by a total and permanent ban on the entry of Muslims. Keep them off of airplanes, ships and trains. It is that simple. If they have the word Muslim on their passport or identity card, if they come from a nation with a significant Muslim population or if they have a Muslim name, they better damn well have proof of active membership in a passive religion or they can stay home.

Google their names. Read their web postings. Read any books they have published. Check their resumes. Interview their families and associates. But, in the present case, the perpetrator's father warned you, and you still let him board that aircraft!

Apparently the suspect in the Christmas incident was in the system, but not on a watch list such as the so-called no-fly list. So I've ordered a thorough review not only of how information related to the subject was handled, but of the overall watch list system and how it can be strengthened.

If you had any sense, and were not a traitor, there would be one list, with the name of every Muslim in the world on it, and they would not be allowed to fly to or over our territory. There is no other solution to the problem of attacks on aircraft by passengers.

The second review will examine all screening policies, technologies and procedures related to air travel. We need to determine just how the suspect was able to bring dangerous explosives aboard an aircraft and what additional steps we can take to thwart future attacks.

There has already been a shoe bomb and an underwear bomb. One terrorist in Saudi Arabia swallowed his bomb. Bombs could be inserted rectally or surgically implanted. If you had any desire to prevent aircraft bombings, you'd exclude Muslims from all flights to and over America.

Third, I've directed my national security team to keep up the pressure on those who would attack our country. We do not yet have all the answers about this latest attempt, but those who would slaughter innocent men, women and children must know that the United States will do more than simply strengthen our defenses -- we will continue to use every element of our national power to disrupt, to dismantle, and defeat the violent extremists who threaten us -- whether they are from Afghanistan or Pakistan, Yemen or Somalia, or anywhere where they are plotting attacks against the U.S. homeland.

The set of terrorists is the set of persons who believe that the Qur'an is the perfect, timeless & immutable revealed word of Allah; who have submitted to Allah and seek to emulate his Messenger. The set of terrorists is Al-Ummah Al-Islamia. Can you kill 1.3 billion Muslims, dispersed all over the world and mixed in with innocent people? Are you willing to do it? Then sit down and shut up!

Are you able and willing to implement a mass media attack on the doctrines of Islam? Are you able and willing to initiate press, television, film and satellite broadcast missions to induce mass apostasy & conversion of Muslims?

Those are the two possibilities; there is no other solution. Which one are you preparing to implement? Are you willing to kill the top terrorist leaders and bomb their funeral processions, bombing those of the terrorists killed, until the recalcitrant true believers are eliminated? Then what the Hell will you do? You have no solution, you have only diversions from objective factual reality. Your diversions waste precious time and money and accomplish nothing of value.

Finally, the American people should remain vigilant, but also be confident. Those plotting against us seek not only to undermine our security, but also the open society and the values that we cherish as Americans. This incident, like several that have preceded it demonstrates that an alert and courageous citizenry are far more resilient than an isolated extremist. As a nation we will do everything in our power to protect our country, as Americans we will never give in to fear or division, we will be guided by our hopes, our unity, and our deeply held values. That's who we are as Americans. And that's what our brave men and women in uniform are standing up for as they spend the holidays in harm's way, and we will continue to do everything that we can to keep America safe in the New Year and beyond.

Terror attacks are designed to disrupt society. They intend to induce panic & paralysis. They intend to cause distrust and paranoia. They intend to bleed us to death financially.

Terror attacks are asymmetrical warfare, yet they are still warfare. We, too have a means of asymmetrical warfare; it was put to very good use about one year before I was born. If you are not willing to use it, you are not willing to keep the lamp of liberty lit; you are willing to waste the all the investment in blood and treasure that has kept this nation free for more than 230 years. Hiroshima & Nagasaki have much to teach you, Mr. President.


Obamination Flight 253 Part 2

On December 31, '09, President Obama issued this press release:

This morning, I spoke with John Brennan about preliminary assessments from the ongoing consultations I have ordered into the human and systemic failures that occurred leading up to the attempted act of terrorism on Christmas Day and about our government-wide efforts at continued vigilance on homeland security and counterterrorism efforts. In a separate call, I spoke with Sec. Napolitano to receive an update on both the Department of Homeland Security review of detection capabilities and the enhanced security measures in place since the Christmas Day incident.

I anticipate receiving assessments from several agencies this evening and will review those tonight and over the course of the weekend. On Tuesday, in Washington, I will meet personally with relevant agency heads to discuss our ongoing reviews as well as security enhancements and intelligence-sharing improvements in our homeland security and counterterrorism operations.

NOTE: John Brennan is Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism.

Big deal. President Obama consulted with his experts. No heads rolled. Nobody did anything realistic to prevent another attack. There is no practical way to detect bombs swallowed, inserted or surgically implanted. Are we going to put MRI scanners in every airport and run every passenger through them? How much would that cost and how long would that take?: How about we just scan the Muslims?

I have a better idea. Just keep Muslims off all flights to or over our territory. Clip Their Wings.

Obanination: Flight 253 Part 3

In the third installment of this series of blog posts about President Obama's treacherous blathering about the terrorist attack on Flight 253, I deal with his remarks of January 2, '10. Click this link for Video of his statement.

Remarks of President Barack Obama
Weekly Address
January 2, 2010

It has now been more than a week since the attempted act of terrorism aboard that flight to Detroit on Christmas Day. On Thursday, I received the preliminary findings of the reviews that I ordered into our terrorist watchlist system and air travel screening. I've directed my counterterrorism and homeland security advisor at the White House, John Brennan, to lead these reviews going forward and to present the final results and recommendations to me in the days to come.

As I said this week, I will do everything in my power to make sure our hard-working men and women in our intelligence, law enforcement and homeland security communities have the tools and resources they need to keep America safe. This includes making sure these communities-and the people in them-are coordinating effectively and are held accountable at every level. And as President, that is what I will do.

Months passed between the arrests of two previous underwear bombers and the warning issued by the terrorist's father yet you did not modify our screening procedures and you did not put the bomber on the no fly list. Do those failures result from incompetence, treason or both? I think the law of multiple causation applies to this case.

Meanwhile, the investigation into the Christmas Day incident continues, and we're learning more about the suspect. We know that he traveled to Yemen, a country grappling with crushing poverty and deadly insurgencies. It appears that he joined an affiliate of al Qaeda, and that this group-al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula-trained him, equipped him with those explosives and directed him to attack that plane headed for America.

This is not the first time this group has targeted us. In recent years, they have bombed Yemeni government facilities and Western hotels, restaurants and embassies-including our embassy in 2008, killing one American. So, as President, I've made it a priority to strengthen our partnership with the Yemeni government-training and equipping their security forces, sharing intelligence and working with them to strike al Qaeda terrorists.

Islamic tyrannies are not our partners nor allies; they are our enemies. Allah explicitly forbids friendship/partnership with disbelievers in several Qur'an verses. Those tyrants are interested in their own tenure on the throne, not in our security or survival. While they fight al-Qaeda at home, they sponsor al-Qaeda attacks against us.

And even before Christmas Day, we had seen the results. Training camps have been struck; leaders eliminated; plots disrupted. And all those involved in the attempted act of terrorism on Christmas must know-you too will be held to account.

Terrorists are a fungible commodity; they can be replaced. Ushering them into Hell after an attack does not reverse the attack nor does it prevent future attacks. You must eliminate the current terrorists and their recruitment base. There will not be peace and security on this earth while there are Muslims on it.

But these efforts are only part of a wider cause. It's been nearly a year since I stood on the steps of the U.S. Capitol and took the oath of office as your President. And with that oath came the solemn responsibility that I carry with me every moment of every day-the responsibility to protect the safety and security of the American people.

On that day I also made it very clear-our nation is at war against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred, and that we will do whatever it takes to defeat them and defend our country, even as we uphold the values that have always distinguished America among nations.

The entity which is waging war against us is Islam. Why won't you identify it by name and honestly describe its doctrines and practices? Muslims are persistent. They are motivated by a demonic promise of carnal reward in the after life if they die in an attempt to kill or conquer us. They are motivated by a demonic threat of eternal Hellfire if they refuse to go to war against us.

To stop Muslims from attacking us, you must either cause them to cease being Muslims or cease living. Nothing less will stop their series of attacks. You can not pacify or appease them and you can't change their doctrine. Our treasury was drained in tribute to the Barbary Pirates before President Jefferson wised up and sent toe Marines to Tripoli. Get a clue.

And make no mistake, that's exactly what we've been doing. It's why I refocused the fight-bringing to a responsible end the war in Iraq, which had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks, and dramatically increasing our resources in the region where al Qaeda is actually based, in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It's why I've set a clear and achievable mission-to disrupt, dismantle and defeat al Qaeda and its extremist allies and prevent their return to either country.

The war against Iraq can not come to a responsible end while its citizens and government remain Islamic. While they are Muslims, they are our enemies; they will return to membership in the set of terror sponsoring states. There is no other possibility. You have not won that war, you have lost it. You have wasted invaluable blood and treasure.

The hijackers were trained at a special facility in Salman Pak. Al-Qaeda also received CBW training from Saddam Hussein's regime. In 1993, a truck bomb was detonated in the World Trade Center. Who mixed the chemicals for that bomb? Where did he receive sanctuary after the attack? Where did the terrorist behind the hijacking of the Achille Lauro receive sanctuary? These words of yours, juxtaposed with those words about Iraq, prove you to be a lying traitor.

On that day I also made it very clear-our nation is at war against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred, and that we will do whatever it takes to defeat them and defend our country, even as we uphold the values that have always distinguished America among nations.

And it's why we've forged new partnerships, as in Yemen, and put unrelenting pressure on these extremists wherever they plot and train-from East Africa to Southeast Asia, from Europe to the Persian Gulf. And though often out of sight, our progress has been unmistakable. Along with our partners, we've disrupted terrorist financing, cut off recruiting chains, inflicted major losses on al Qaeda's leadership, thwarted plots here in the United States, and saved countless American lives.

Any disbeliever who thinks he has Muslim partners is actually a useful idiot, being manipulated by Muslims. Muslims do not form partnerships with disbelievers. You did not save any lives Dec. 25, blind luck saved 277. Your idiotic policies damn near cost 277 lives, but we got lucky that day.

Terrorists are believers, not extremists. To comprehend this fatal fact, read the following ayat. The connecting word is spend, it is what believers do. They spend in Allah's cause. What do they spend? Read 9:120 and re-read it until you get a clue.

Allah's cause is making Islam dominant. The imperative is issued in 9:33 and exemplified in Sahih Bukhari 4.52.65.

Yet as the Christmas Day attempt illustrates, and as we were reminded this week by the sacrifices of more brave Americans in Afghanistan-including those seven dedicated men and women of the CIA-the hard work of protecting our nation is never done. So as our reviews continue, let us ask the questions that need to be asked. Let us make the changes that need to be made. Let us debate the best way to protect the country we all love. That is the right and responsibility of every American and every elected official.

Those CIA agents murdered by a suicide bomber died because they were told by a traitor that they have Muslim allies. They died because the Muslim allied with them was a double agent and they, in their blind faith, trusted him enough not to check him for bombs before meeting with him.

But as we go forward, let us remember this-our adversaries are those who would attack our country, not our fellow Americans, not each other. Let's never forget what has always carried us through times of trial, including those attacks eight Septembers ago.

What is the nationality of Maj. Nidal Malik Hassan? Were the men and women he shot his fellow Americans? Was he their fellow American? Do you think with your anal sphincter instead of your brain? Do you imagine in your arrogant conceit that we are too stupid to think clearly enough to detect your lies? Maj. Hassan's nationality is Muslim. He is a member of Ummah-al-Islamiya, not an American yet he was a member of our armed forces and was treated as a citizen. Get a clue for Chrissake.

Three thousand people were not carried through the Abomination; they were crushed and burned to death. Your moronic platitudes induce incontinence.

Instead of giving in to fear and cynicism, let's renew that timeless American spirit of resolve and confidence and optimism. Instead of succumbing to partisanship and division, let's summon the unity that this moment demands. Let's work together, with a seriousness of purpose, to do what must be done to keep our country safe.

As we begin this New Year, I cannot imagine a more fitting resolution to guide us-as a people and as a nation.

To make our nation safe, we need to exclude the enemy fifth column from it. We need to get rid of Islam, on a national and global scope. Because you are a politician, you can not acknowledge that need and seek to divert our attention from it.

Ralph Peters: Lying to Ourselves

One of my Google Alerts brought an important article to my attention: Lying to ourselves by Ralph Peters. Peters points out the fact that our leadership lies to us, refusing to connect terrorism to the Islamic doctrines from which it flows.

While I am generally in agreement with what Peters is communicating in his article, I have a problem with one quote I have excerpted.

Spoiled brats remade their god in their own vengeful image. And we have to kill them. This one really is a zero-sum game.

Islamic terrorism, perpetrated by college graduates more than twenty years of age is not juvenile delinquency. The perpetrators may be economically advantaged, and they may be malcontents, but terrorism is not a function of social adjustment; it is a function of doctrines intrinsic to Islam.

The idea that terrorists distort Allah is another problem. They did not re-write the Qur'an. Allah said that he would cast terror, and said that he did cast terror, leading to death, dispossession and destruction. Moe bragged that he was made victorious by terror. Therefore, the suggestion that terrorism is a modern innovation is obviously false. Only the methods and materials have changed, the doctrine remains the same.

Muslims get brownie points by angering or inflicting injury on disbelievers. This quote from at-Taubah 121 is out of context, but unchanged in its meaning. [Emphasis added.]
"...nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness...."

I can not dispute the fact that we need to kill the terrorists. How we are to locate & identify them and separate them from the "innocent civilians" who shield them is an very difficult problem to solve. Terrorists are like shark teeth, when one falls, another comes forward to replace him.

We're not just fighting men but a plague of faith. Until Washington accepts that, we'll continue to reap a low return on our investments of blood and treasure.

We are fighting men who attack us because of what they believe. They believe that they have a divine mandate to conquer and subjugate the entire world. We are a tough nut to crack, they seek to demoralize us and destroy our will to resist. How do you fight "a plague of faith" ?

The abstract concept of faith is not what we must combat. Islam's faith component includes a mandate to conquer, expressed in 8:39 & 9:29 and confirmed by Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387. It includes terror as a battle tactic expressed in 3:151, 8:12, 8:57, 8:60, 33:26, 59:2 & 59:13 and confirmed by Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220. Islam is perfected and immutable. Muslims will be cursed if they abandon Jihad as a way of life.

We can not change the doctrines of Islam. Nobody can, they are fixed. So how do we combat it? We must find a way to cause Muslims to lose their faith and become disbelievers or convert to a benign belief system. To do that, we must accept the fact that Islam is the enemy and we must launch a massive, intensive ideological attack against it on a global scale. Until we launch that campaign, we will be wasting blood and treasure on the military battlefront.

On Christmas Day, a Muslim fanatic attempted to butcher hundreds of Christians (dead Jews would've been a bonus). Our response? Have airport security analyze the contents of grandma's mini-bottle of shampoo -- we don't want to "discriminate."

With our lies, self-deception and self-flagellation, we're terror's little helpers.

It is not possible to exhaust the ingenuity of men who seek ways to kill and maim us. This situation is exemplified by the Wylie Coyote cartoons in which Wylie always innovates a new attack and the road runner always escapes. But we don't always escape. Eventually, they will swallow their bombs. How will we detect swallowed bombs? Will we run every passenger through a cat scan? Instead of hassling innocent people with intrusive and expensive searches, we need to exclude Muslims from commercial flights.

The failed Christmas bombing is a wake up call. We should hear the alarm and answer it by banning Muslims from commercial flights to and over our territory. No lesser measure can possibly be sufficient.

"Defamation" Resolutions: Restricted Liberty Impaired Rights

Several excellent articles have been written about the (unintended?) consequences of the UN's resolutions Combating Defamation of Religions. Now two courageous writers have added a new dimension to the discussion by generalizing about the consequences on the ground and naming the prime offender.

Abuse of Religious Freedom Hurts Indonesia And Renders God Defenseless by Muh Taufiqurrohman and Rebecca Lunnon is clear, specific and well written. If their lives are shortened as a consequence of the publication of their article, I will not be surprised.

Besides identifying the problem and suggesting solutions, the authors have identified the principal antagonist.

In addition to harmonizing these outdated laws, the government needs to replace problematic statutes like the 1965 Law on Prevention of Abuse and Defamation of Religions, the 2006 Revised Joint Ministerial Decree on the Construction of Houses of Worship and the 1978 Guidelines for the Propagation of Religion with an all encompassing law guaranteeing religious freedom. Such a law could be written along the lines of the Australian Constitution, which prohibits the government from making any laws to establish a religion, impose religious observance or prohibit the free exercise of religion. The law should give all individuals the freedom to express a diversity of views, as long as they do not incite religious hatred or violate the rights of others. [...]

The government also must address the violation of religious freedom and human rights made possible by the existence of religious institutions such as the Coordinating Board for Monitoring Mystical Beliefs in Society (Bakor Pakem) and the Indonesian Council of Ulema (MUI). Tasked with monitoring and resolving instances of deviant interpretation of religious doctrine, Bakor Pakem’s authority has increased state intervention in religious issues in a way that clearly violates the constitutional guarantee of religious freedom.
