Domestic Terrorist List – Who’s On Top?

Posted by Tina

A claim has been made on this blog that our nation is threatened more by Radical Christians than it is by radical Muslim terrorists. I thought the notion absurd but let it pass. Then this morning an article in National Review affirmed my suspicions:

A tiny, hardcore subset of environmental activists is so moved to violence that they’ve been repeatedly labeled America’s top domestic-terror threat by the FBI. Most domestic terrorism is committed by individuals, not groups, but eco-terrorist organizations have been responsible for more domestic-terror attacks than anyone else, and it’s not even close…

What comes next is a chart showing that the two most threatening domestic terror groups are ELF and ALF. Number one is the Earth Liberation Front.

Number of Christian terrorists groups in the top five? Zero.

I thought you should know the truth.

ISIS Building New Base in Libya

Posted by Tina

The terrorist group ISIS has expanded operations to Sirte, Libya, a coastal city that will give them a better advantage in their oil for terror funding program. Bombing campaigns by Putin and Hollande have helped push them more quickly in that direction.

Business Insider has details:

As ISIS has accomplished in Syria and Iraq, the group is successfully exploiting “deep divisions” in Libya, according to The Journal. ISIS has encouraged sectarian hatred in Syria and Iraq to further divide the population and convince Sunni Muslims that they need ISIS to protect them from Shiites.

Also as it did when it started seizing territory in Iraq and Syria, ISIS might also have its sights set on expansion in Libya. Local and Western officials told The Times that recent attacks suggest that Ajdabiya, a city further to the east, could be the next area ISIS looks to seize. It would give the group control of nearby oil fields, according to The Times.

Another sign of ISIS’ intentions in Libya comes with the people starting to suddenly appear in the North African country. Senior Iraqi leaders from ISIS are reportedly arriving from across the Mediterranean, which mimics how ISIS set up its base in Raqqa. The leaders of ISIS-controlled cities in Syria are predominantly Iraqi.

Sirte is also being governed like other ISIS-controlled cities in the Middle East. The group has reportedly set up propaganda “media points” in the city and started imposing its strict laws, like requiring women to wear Islamic veils in public and permitting public executions.

Oh goody, public executions! (Too much hyperbole, Libby?)

Meanwhile, the world’s leaders wine, dine, and yammer on in Paris about a much more serious threat.

21 Yr Old Chicago Man Arrested by FBI for Murder Spree Threat

Posted by Tina

Jabari Dean, aged 21, was arrested today by the FBI for posting a detailed threat against University of Chicago students and faculty to avenge the death of Laquan McDonald, a teenager who was shot 16 times by Officer Jason Van Dyke, now charged with first degree murder. CNN reports:

“This is my only warning. At 10 a.m. on Monday mourning (sic) I am going to the campus quad of the University of Chicago. I will be armed with a M-4 Carbine and 2 Desert Eagles all fully loaded. I will execute aproximately (sic) 16 white male students and or staff, which is the same number of time (sic) Mcdonald (sic) was killed.

“I then will die killing any number of white policemen that I can in the process. This is not a joke. I am to do my part to rid the world of the white devils. I expect you to do the same,” the post read.

This young men referred to his potential victims as “white devils” so I have to ask, has anyone asked President Obama if this young man was influenced by his intervention and divisive rhetoric? Has anyone stepped forward to blame the radicals of the Black Lives Matter movement for inciting this young man to issue violent threats?


Climate Summit Underway – Obama Yammers On

global warming toonPosted by Tina

Our President, like 146 other world leaders, was given 3 minutes to speak at the climate change conference (COP21) but even after three beeps to remind him of the time limit he yammered on for “more than eight and a half minutes.” Excerpts from NBC News:

“I’ve come here personally, as the leader of the world’s largest economy and the second-largest emitter, to say that the United States of America not only recognizes our responsibility in creating this problem, we embrace our responsibility to do something about it,” Obama told the summit.

The beeps continued every 30 seconds, but the president plowed on.

“One of the enemies that we’ll be fighting at this conference is cynicism, the notion we can’t do anything about climate change,” he continued, seemingly undeterred by the regular interruptions over his speech.

His prepared remarks took fourteen minutes to deliver, an astounding indication that he had no intention of limiting his remarks to the three minutes time allotment.

The President, like most lefties, are perpetual spenders of other peoples money. He’s spent a bundle over the last seven years and is promising to spend more at this conference for little return. Our economy has been scrapping bottom for seven years, our debt is over the moon, but that didn’t stop the Prez, John Kerry, Susan Rice and others from dining at L’Ambroisie in Paris at 200 smackers a meal. Maybe, as host, French President Hollande picked up the tab.

The President has launched Mission Innovation

…an initiative to dramatically accelerate public and private global clean energy innovation to address global climate change, provide affordable clean energy to consumers, including in the developing world, and create additional commercial opportunities in clean energy.

Through the initiative, 20 countries are committing to double their respective clean energy research and development (R&D) investment over five years. These countries include the top five most populous nations – China, India, the United States, Indonesia, and Brazil. They stretch across five continents. And when you add all partner countries together, they represent 75 percent of the world’s CO2 emissions from electricity, and more than 80 percent of the world’s clean energy R&D investment.

They also represent the myriad ways we create and use energy. The Mission Innovation members include some of the largest oil and gas producers – the United States, Canada, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Mexico, Norway and Indonesia – as well as many with high penetration of renewables in their power sectors, such as Canada, Norway, Denmark, Brazil and Chile.

I applaud the private sector investment, unless it has been coerced, but you can look forward to rising prices for fuel, as the President promised when he first ran for president.

Articles for your consideration on the climate change subject:

Climate Depot informs that “George Soros, Tom Steyer are ‘investors’ in Obama’s new ‘clean’ energy research plan”

Not so coincidentally, Breitbart informs us of, “The New King Coal: George Soros”:

U.S. Securities and Exchange Act filings indicate that Soros has purchased an initial 1 million shares of Peabody Energy and 553,200 shares of Arch Coal, the two largest publicly traded U.S. coal companies. As pointed out last week, both companies have been driven perilously close to bankruptcy by the combination of President Obama’s “war on coal” and inexpensive natural gas brought on by the hydrofracturing revolution.

Under the hypothesis that not even socialists would leave trillions of dollars worth of a perfectly safe and clean energy source in the ground for the sake of the imaginary “climate crisis,” I posited that once the existing coal industry ownership was wiped out by President Obama’s regulatory onslaught, a new politically correct ownership would rehabilitate the fuel by contributing to Democrats.

Fred Singer at The American Thinker writes, ” The Burden of Proof on Climate Change” is on the alarmists.

Alarmism about climate change has been ongoing for decades. It’s based on faulty computer models, scams, corrupt voices in it for money, and politics and power. The gist of the message at the Climate conference today is that global warming is a bigger threat than terrorism. I guess that’s why Putin and Obama are spending time together discussing that “little situation” in Syria.

Stay tuned, the particulars from the conference aren’t out yet…the yammering hasn’t quite played out.


Some Humorous Gaffes by Barack Obama

Posted by Jack

“You know I taught constitutional law for 10 years, I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now had to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all, and that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m president of the United States of America.” Speech 2008 One word…….. HA!

“What I was suggesting — you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith…” — Obama on ABC’s This Week. 2008
“When I meet with world leaders, what’s striking — whether it’s in Europe or here in Asia…” Referring to Hawaii as Asia while holding a press conference outside Honolulu, Nov. 16, 2011

“We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad.” —Cincinnati, OH, Sept. 22, 2011 We have a railroad that runs under ocean?

“The reforms we seek would bring greater choice, savings and inefficiencies to our healthcare system.” Washington, DC July 20th, 2009 Well, he got one out of three right.

“My friends we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world, I hope you will join with me as we try to change it.” Date unknown. If its not broke why fix it?


The Problem of Radical Muslims and “Industrial Rape”

Posted by Tina

Death and destruction are the things most associated with terrorists and Muslim radicals. But an article in the American Thinker today points to another serious problem that rarely makes the news:

Perhaps there is no European country where rape has reached epidemic proportions as it has in Sweden, a country now known as the “rape capital” of Europe. Sweden ranks Number 2 on the global list of rape countries. From 1975 to present, rape in Sweden has increased 1472%. Based on this model, it is now projected that one in four Swedish women (and sometimes little girls) will be raped. Rape of men and boys is also on the rise.

Making this nightmarish situation worse, the authorities hide what’s going on, make outlandish excuses for it, and/or side with the rapists. Dhimmitude has taken hold. Few, if any, will state the truth: that the majority of rapes in Sweden are committed by Muslim males.

The article highlights the problem of rape and trafficking in the United Kingdom, Holland, Germany, Austria, Denmark, and Sweden and is filled with many links showing cases and information to illustrate the seriousness of the problem. A few examples from The Gatestone Institute:

“Between acts of abuse sometimes stretching over a number of days, the Oxford men ensured girls were guarded so that they could not escape. In addition to being abused in various locations in Oxford, some of the girls were taken to other towns and cities such as London and Bournemouth for the same purpose.” — Oxfordshire Serious Case Review.

“I turned up at the police station at 2/3am, blood all over me, soaked through my trousers to the crotch. They dismissed it as me being naughty, a nuisance.” — Victim’s testimony, Oxfordshire Serious Case Review.

“I made a complaint about a man who trafficked me from a children’s home. He was arrested, released and trafficked me again.” — Victim’s testimony, Oxfordshire Serious Case Review. …

…Nearly 400 British girls as young as eleven are believed to have been sexually exploited by Muslim rape gangs in Oxfordshire over the past 15 years, according to a chilling new report. It charges local officials with repeatedly ignoring the abuse due to a “culture of denial.”

Pamela Geller cites a report by the Law and Freedom Foundation calling for an investigation:

Under pressure from political correctness, authorities have allowed Muslim pedophile gangs in the United Kingdom to groom underage girls for sexual abuse for decades, victimizing as many as 10,000 schoolgirls, according to a report by an organization calling for an investigation.

“What we believe is required is a full-scale public inquiry,” the Law and Freedom Foundation said in the conclusion of its 300-plus page report, “Easy Meat: Multiculturalism, Islam and Child Sex Slavery.”

The group said the public inquiry “must look into the failures of national agencies, child-care charities, and academics to study this problem.”

Denial and political correctness (sanctioned lunacy) are costing lives and facilitating horrid abuses of children that under normal circumstances would never be tolerated. (They would certainly not be tolerated from white Christian males.)

This is disturbing on so many levels: Tolerance of the sense of entitlement to rape spawned from religious views, a diminishing of the seriousness of the acts by authorities, failure to acknowledge much less address the problem by leadership and media, and failure to take steps to protect women and young girls. All of this is deplorable. It makes me think western culture is completely bankrupt…and it’s questionable that it can be turned around.


McCarthy Informs: We Don’t Vet for Sharia Adherence

Posted by Tina

In my reading today I found myself, once again, further informed by one of America’s great litigators, Andrew McCarthy. In his latest article for National Review, “The Controversy over Syrian Refugees Misses the Question We Should Be Asking” McCarthy points out the problem with our vetting process. We vet for terrorism when we need to be vetting for Sharia adherence:

vetting only works if you vet for the right thing. Washington, in its delusional Islamophilia, vets only for ties to terrorism, which it defines as “violent extremism” in purblind denial of modern terrorism’s Islamist ideological moorings. As the deteriorating situation in Europe manifests, our actual challenge is Islamic supremacism, of which jihadist terrorism is only a subset. …

…We should long ago have recognized sharia as the bright line that separates authentic Muslim moderates, hungry for the West’s culture of reason and individual liberty, from Islamic supremacists, resistant to Western assimilation and insistent on incremental accommodation of Muslim law and mores. …

… Not only are we vetting for the wrong thing, we are ignoring the dynamics of jihadism. The question is not whether we are admitting Muslims who currently have ties to terrorist organizations; it is whether we are admitting Muslims who are apt to become violent jihadists after they settle here.

Do read the article. It not only informs us about those who wage war against us, it serves as a reminder of who we really are as a nation and why it’s important to preserve the principles and ideals that formed this nation. McCarthy’s conclusions cannot be denied.

America Has No Leader – The Crazies are Loose on Our Streets

Posted by Tina

When organizations or nations lack good leadership chaos and violence rise up to fill the void.We’ve witnessed the rise and spread of ISIS and affiliated terror groups. Lack of foresight and planing finds thousands of refugees fleeing into Europe. At home flash mobs have attacked individuals and ransacked stores. False accusations aimed at cops have led to the rise of violent protesters issuing death threats, burning down buildings, and disrupting activities. Radical elements on our college campuses are intimidating students, forcing resignations, demanding special privileges and getting away with it. America has been without good leadership for seven long years; the crazies have come out of the woodwork and are loose on our streets. This holiday weekend is no exception. The headlines:

Daily Mail: “FBI issues safety warning after LOSING TRACK of heavily-armed anti-Islam protester who posted video of his ‘road trip’ to New York to terrorize mosques”

Daily Mail: “Pictured: The cabin in the woods where gunman, 57, lived before Planned Parenthood rampage that killed three – including hero cop – and injured nine”

Daily Mail: “Three arrested as hundreds of protesters shut down Black Friday shopping on Chicago’s Mag Mile on third night of protests over killing of Laquan McDonald”

An adolescent, meanwhile, oversaw the annual Thanksgiving tradition of pardoning a turkey by taking a potshot at the opposition party:

“As you may have heard, for months there has been a fierce competition between a bunch of turkeys trying to win their way into the White House.”

Our leader is a punk…a street thug. Yes, I am holding the President responsible for chaotic conditions in our nation. He has created an atmosphere of division and strife, of hopelessness and helplessness. He has failed to lead in the war on terror. He has overseen the worst recovery ever. He has created an economy in which only the wealthy thrive. He has fomented hatred and suspicion, resentment, and doubt. He is a complete failure.

America can do better…and we will.

Obama Lying to Americans About ISIS AGAIN! #@$%*

by Jack

When it comes to ISIS, Al Qaeda and Islamic terrorism, one wonders when Obama will start being honest with the public? It’s become so bad, we can’t believe a thing Obama says. Obama has been 100% wrong about ISIS and I’m beginning to think Vladamir Putin is far more credible than our own president.

Days ago, Putin stood before the G20 summit in Turkey and provided them with a list of countries and people who are contributing support directly to ISIS terrorists and Al Qaeda, Obama had the same information as Putin, but he never revealed it – quite the contrary. Only Putin had the guts to say Turkey has been one of the main buyers of black market oil stolen from Syrian oil fields by ISIS! This is a large part of how ISIS has been able to achieve a $23M a month income that sustains their army of terrorists.Obama and Putin

“I’ve shown our colleagues photos taken from space and from aircraft which clearly demonstrate the scale of the illegal trade in oil and petroleum products. The motorcade of refueling vehicles stretched for dozens of kilometers, so that from a height of 4,000 to 5,000 meters they stretch beyond the horizon.” President V. Putin

For well over a year Obama has known about this black market situation and Turkey’s complicity, but, instead of exposing it or calling them on it or bombing these wide-open convoys Obama has done nothing. This has kept the tankers rolling and the money flowing. . .to ISIS. Our Commander-In-Chief actually blocked the US Air Force from attacking the oil convoys, citing environmental concerns! No, I’m not kidding. Apparently spelt blood doesn’t matter as much to Obama as spelt oil. This is so wrong, if its not cowardly and stupid, then its akin to aiding and abetting ISIS. I’m leaning to the latter given his long pattern of conduct.

When it comes to Obama dealing with ISIS or terrorism in general, its been one blunder, one cover-up, after another (Benghazi) or one obstruction after another (won’t bomb ISIS – won’t work with Russia). Obama has turned down help from real willing partners and instead he’s tried to sell us a big lie about leading a coalition of 65 nations in the fight ISIS and global terrorism. Well, lets look around – what nations, who are they? Where’s this big coalition?

Why is he lying? Can he be that far out of touch, that delusional or incompetent or does this man have the heart of a traitor? This is a fair question considering how he has handled or rather mishandled everything in the Middle East and Afghanistan. Could he secretly have empathy for these Muslim terrorists? I’m asking, because I really want to understand why Obama behaves so consistently underhanded and wrong on almost everything! And while he’s making a mess of things in the Middle East Obama has the audacity to tell us that his “pin prick” air strikes are keeping ISIS contained. Ha! Tell that to the French. Something is terribly wrong in Washington and we better face up to it.

Terrorism has never been better armed or better funded and it all happened on Obama’s watch.

Fact: ISIS has grown by 4400 percent since 2008.

Last week Obama was finally forced to deal with these black market oil convoys due to the shoot down of the Russian plane by Turkey.

Let’s not forget that just before the Paris attack, Obama told the American people ISIS was contained. And previously before that, he told us it is going to be a long struggle to remove ISIS, that it could take many years. Our best generals have said this is absolutely nonsense. They didn’t know where he was getting this information, because it wasn’t coming out of the Pentagon or the CIA! Those folks have all said ISIS is a small militia force of about 30,000 to 35,000 fighters. That number could be crushed easily by the might of the United States, but with a coalition force, it could end their reign of terror even sooner.

In the absence of American leadership, Putin has by default taken over and not surprisingly, Russia has made more progress against ISIS in two months than Obama has in the last 2 years. This is embarrassing folks, our President is a fool.

Look at what Putin just said to the media: “We need to organize work specifically concentrated on the prevention of terrorist attacks and tackling terrorism on a global scale. We offered to cooperate (with the US) in anti-IS efforts. Unfortunately, our American partners refused. They just sent a written note and it says: ‘we reject your offer’.

Obamaandpat[WE] didn’t reject anything…the idiot in the White House did. Putin’s trying to do something that Obama said he couldn’t and wouldn’t do…and that’s crush ISIS before they spread and consolidate their power.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin claims that the ISIS terrorists are receiving funding from at least 40 countries, including G-20 members. After the just-concluded G-20 meet in Turkey, Putin told reporters that he shared Russian intelligence data on Islamic State financing with his G-20 colleagues: “I provided examples based on our data on the financing of different Islamic State units by private individuals. This money, as we have established, comes from 40 countries and, there are some of the G20 members among them. This topic (the war on the terror) was crucial. Especially after the Paris tragedy, we all understand that the means of financing terrorism should be severed. ”

Right after Russia bombed a huge convoy of over 1000 ISIS oil tankers that cross into Turkey to sell the oil freely to the Turks in the blood-oil trade that finances the terror group, Turkey struck at Russia. Turkey back stabbed Russia by downing the Russian warplane and acted as accomplices of the terrorists, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
“This incident stands out against the usual fight against terrorism. Our troops are fighting heroically against terrorists, risking their lives. But the loss we suffered today came from a stab in the back delivered by accomplices of the terrorists,” Putin said.

Remember folks, Hillary was right there with Obama during most of this and she lied too. We can’t have this women become our next President.

The First Thanksgiving

Posted by Jack from

First Thanksgiving

For many Americans, the Thanksgiving meal includes seasonal dishes such as roast turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. The holiday feast dates back to November 1621, when the newly arrived Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians gathered at Plymouth for an autumn harvest celebration, an event regarded as America’s “first Thanksgiving.” But what was really on the menu at the famous banquet, and which of today’s time-honored favorites didn’t earn a place at the table until later in the holiday’s 400-year history?

While no records exist of the exact bill of fare, the Pilgrim chronicler Edward Winslow noted in his journal that the colony’s governor, William Bradford, sent four men on a “fowling” mission in preparation for the three-day event. Wild—but not domestic—turkey was indeed plentiful in the region and a common food source for both English settlers and Native Americans. But it is just as likely that the fowling party returned with other birds we know the colonists regularly consumed, such as ducks, geese and swans. Instead of bread-based stuffing, herbs, onions or nuts might have been added to the birds for extra flavor.

Turkey or no turkey, the first Thanksgiving’s attendees almost certainly got their fill of meat. Winslow wrote that the Wampanoag guests arrived with an offering of five deer. Culinary historians speculate that the deer was roasted on a spit over a smoldering fire and that the colonists might have used some of the venison to whip up a hearty stew.

The 1621 Thanksgiving celebration marked the Pilgrims’ first autumn harvest, so it is likely that the colonists feasted on the bounty they had reaped with the help of their Native American neighbors. Local vegetables that likely appeared on the table include onions, beans, lettuce, spinach, cabbage, carrots and perhaps peas. Corn, which records show was plentiful at the first harvest, might also have been served, but not in the way most people enjoy it now. In those days, the corn would have been removed from the cob and turned into cornmeal, which was then boiled and pounded into a thick corn mush or porridge that was occasionally sweetened with molasses.

Fruits indigenous to the region included blueberries, plums, grapes, gooseberries, raspberries and, of course cranberries, which Native Americans ate and used as a natural dye. The Pilgrims might have been familiar with cranberries by the first Thanksgiving, but they wouldn’t have made sauces and relishes with the tart orbs. That’s because the sacks of sugar that traveled across the Atlantic on the Mayflower were nearly or fully depleted by November 1621. Cooks didn’t begin boiling cranberries with sugar and using the mixture as an accompaniment for meats until about 50 years later.

Culinary historians believe that much of the Thanksgiving meal consisted of seafood, which is often absent from today’s menus. Mussels in particular were abundant in New England and could be easily harvested because they clung to rocks along the shoreline. The colonists occasionally served mussels with curds, a dairy product with a similar consistency to cottage cheese. Lobster, bass, clams and oysters might also have been part of the feast.

Whether mashed or roasted, white or sweet, potatoes had no place at the first Thanksgiving. After encountering it in its native South America, the Spanish began introducing the potato to Europeans around 1570. But by the time the Pilgrims boarded the Mayflower, the tuber had neither doubled back to North America nor become popular enough with the English to hitch a ride. New England’s native inhabitants are known to have eaten other plant roots such as Indian turnips and groundnuts, which they may or may not have brought to the party.

Both the Pilgrims and members of the Wampanoag tribe ate pumpkins and other squashes indigenous to New England—possibly even during the harvest festival—but the fledgling colony lacked the butter and wheat flour necessary for making pie crust. Moreover, settlers hadn’t yet constructed an oven for baking. According to some accounts, early English settlers in North America improvised by hollowing out pumpkins, filling the shells with milk, honey and spices to make a custard, then roasting the gourds whole in hot ashes.
