Snowden watch

As I’ve blogged before, I have mixed feelings about Edward Snowden and his revelations about U.S. government spying on everybody. I understand why some consider him a traitor – because yes, we do need to fight Islamic terrorism.

And I understand why some consider him a hero – because we need to fight Islamic terrorism with appropriate tools; not tools that expand government power to the point where it could easily be used (and perhaps already gets used?) for purposes of tyranny. With that in mind, here are a couple of news items:

  • China drops Apple, Cisco, Intel and other U.S. tech leaders from its “approved state purchase lists”. China’s action may have several motives; but fear of the expansive NSA spying (that Snowden revealed) is surely among them.
  • Snowden gets libertarian, arguing for limited government and the right of the governed (us) to reject excessive government control.
    There must always be a balance of power between the governing and the governed…

    Our rights are not granted by governments…They are inherent to our nature. But it’s entirely the opposite for governments: their privileges are precisely equal to only those which we suffer them to enjoy.

    A viewpoint which all Americans ought to support, considering our origins.

Your thoughts?

While we’re at it: According to The Guardian (a left-wing British paper), Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago Police are running their own black site for secret interrogations – and not just for anti-terrorism. True? Exaggerated? From the comments: A Chicago cop says it’s BS.

Emperor Barack I: “Islam doesn’t cause terrorism, Criticizing Islamic Terrorism causes terrorism.”

A day after talking about the “debate in the press and among pundits””over terminology, he accused others in the public sphere Thursday of aiding the terrorist cause by highlighting the connection between Islamic teachings and Islamic State’s tactics, which include rape, beheadings, crucifixions and slavery. “That narrative sometimes extends far beyond terrorist organizations,” he continued. “That narrative becomes the foundation upon which terrorists build their ideology and by which they try to justify their violence, and that hurts all of us, including Islam and especially Muslims who are the ones most likely to be killed.”

Mr. Obama really, really doesn’t want people to talk about Islamic terrorism; probably because if people started paying attention to the butchery happening in the Middle East, they might want him to… you know… do something about it.

Oh… you know what else Mr. Obama  said causes Islamic terror? People criticizing his Amnesty Scheme. I am not making this up.

In Obama’s choom-addled brain, Islamists who are butchering children, burning prisoners alive, crucifying and selling little girls into sex slavery (because the Koran says it’s okay) have “legitimate grievances.”

But people who want his Government to have a balanced budget and follow the US Constitution are dangerous extremists.

Is it any wonder even the most die-hard trolls the trolls have stopped defending Emperor Lightworker? Is there any defense left for his megalomaniacal incompetence beyond, “Well, OK, he’s pretty much shredded our democratic institutions, flushed our economy down the crapper, doubled our debt, and his foreign policy is leading us into World War III, but none of that matters because he’s pro-gay marriage.”

The Worst Sort of People

ISIS released a video yesterday showing a captured Jordanian pilot being burned alive. They also have continued their brutal campaign of murdering gay people through stoning and defenestration. Allahu-frackin’-Akhbar.

The Jordanian Government responded quickly and decisively, announcing the immediate execution of ISIS prisoners in its custody. It is difficult, if not impossible, to imagine Emperor Golfpants responding with such decisive action. Indeed, I expect the State Department will soon be denouncing Jordan for ‘escalating tensions’ or some such nonsense.

It is important to remember that the ISIS savages who are burning people alive, beheading infidels, selling women into sex slavery, and brutally murdering gays are the ideological brethren of the terrorists our Emperor is hellbent on releasing from GITMO.

It is a puzzlement that the civilized world continues to allow ISIS to exist at all.

But instead, the progressive left is pretty much by deed, if not necessarily in word, in ISIS’s corner. Leftist website Gawker is openly sympathetic to the terrorists on this one. Human Rights Watch is, likewise, is discouraging Jordan (and other nations) from being too tough on ISIS because that might make them even meaner. (Leftist logic at its finest.)  The shrill, aging, leather-faced attention whores of Code Pink are also siding with the terrorists (as usual). And the libertarian whackjobs at Reason have shown that, on this one, they have no disagreement with the far left whackjobs.

To Obama and the American Left, the only Dangerous Extremists are people who want to balance the budget and restrain the President to the Constitutional limits of his authority.

A caller to Rush Limbaugh made this point.

The Obamacrats are adamant… ADAMANT… that Islamist Terrorists are not Islamic because Islam is a “religion of peace” and terrorism is un-Islamic. Therefore, they say, those who practice terrorism cannot really be Islamic.

And yet, when a terrorist is sent to GITMO, the administration bends over backwards to make sure they have access to Korans, prayer rugs, halal food… all the things an observant Muslim requires.

Why do they do this, if the terrorists aren’t really Islamic?

French Mohammedan Hero Saved Jews from Charlie Terrorists

This guy is going to have to go into the French equivalent of the Witness Protection Program when his fellow Mohammedans find out that he hid Jewish customers in the freezer of his store to save them from one of the Charlie Hebdo terrorists.


Lassana Bathily, originally from Mali in west Africa, is said to have shepherded terrified customers to safety in a chiller as the Islamist gunman took hold of the Hyper Cacher supermarket in Porte de Vincennes, Paris, yesterday.

Coulibaly executed four of the 19 hostages before police stormed the building and ended the terror, killing the gunman as he attempted to flee.

Mohammedans Murder 12 Infidels in Paris

Posted by V the K at 7:57 am - January 7, 2015.
Filed under: War On Terror

Mohammedan terrorists slaughtered 12 people today in Paris.

Gunmen have attacked the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people and injuring seven, French officials say.

The latest tweet on Charlie Hebdo’s account was a cartoon of the Islamic State militant group leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The satirical weekly has courted controversy in the past with its irreverent take on news and current affairs.

The magazine was fire-bombed in November 2011 a day after it carried a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad.

But there is some good news in this, from a leftist perspective. No terrorists were deprived of sleep or put in stress positions in order to gather intelligence to prevent the attack; so the left’s unearned sense of moral superiority remains intact. Also, the victims were unable to shoot back, so we know that the ‘common sense gun laws’ favored by leftists were working as they should. And, President Obama continues to work hard at releasing more Mohammedan terrorists from Gitmo, so we can expect more of these types of successes in the future.

Gravedancing? Hardly. The deaths of twelve innocent people on the altar of leftist multicultural ideology is horrid, and I am incensed at their murders as much or more than any leftist was when they learned that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed had water poured on his nose. If I have to be over-the-top sarcastic and tasteless to point out that the left’s vacuous moral sanctimony has real life consequences, then so be it.

Be mad at the left for being sanctimonious moral cowards; and by all means be angry at the terrorists for their savagery, and especially be mad at the terror apologists who say the victims had it coming to them for “insulting the ‘Prophet,’” but for Set’s sake don’t be mad at me for pointing all of this out.

Discuss the Democrats’ “Torture” Report

Posted by V the K at 7:24 am - December 9, 2014.
Filed under: War On Terror

The Senate Democrats are releasing a report on the CIA’s use of “torture” today. At this stage, there seems no point in relitigating whether the use of harsh but non-injurious interrogation techniques (e.g. waterboarding. sleep deprivation, stress positions) to derive intelligence that saves innocent human lives is actually “torture.” But one does wonder why, after eight years in power, the Democrats are just *now* releasing this report as they are headed out the door? One can speculate as to the reasons for the timing:

  • One last opportunity to slam the Bush Administration, because Democrat political success hinges on keeping hate directed at their opposition.
  • An opportunity for the self-righteous moral preening the left is so fond of indulging in; regardless of the cost in human lives and destruction
  • Leaving a big, steaming turd on the desk for the incoming Republican majority to deal with.
  • [Update] I almost forgot, thanks Heliotrope, fossilized Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein has a personal vendetta with the CIA.

Now, if the USA were engaged in the kind of torture that ISIS and the (much beloved by the left) Cuban Communist Regimes does — pulling off fingernails, burning people alive, physical disfigurement — has done, and for no other purpose than sadistic retribution, that would be something to be outraged about. But as for shedding a tear because the Mohammadan butcher Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was waterboarded to get vital, life-saving information…


Really, CNN? Really?

CNN found a rather… um… unique angle in its coverage of the terrorist attacks on a Jerusalem synagogue yesterday.


I guess that’s one way of looking at it.

Wait…Who underestimated ISIS?

Obama says US ‘underestimated’ rise of ISIS, admits ‘contradictory’ Syria policy:

President Obama acknowledged Sunday that U.S. intelligence officials “underestimated” the threat posed by the Islamic State and overestimated the Iraqi army’s capacity to defeat the militant group…

Let’s be clear: Officials who were chosen and supported by Obama. The administration of Barack Hussein Obama underestimated ISIS.

Or else, we can make this entry #39,422 in the files of “Obama pretends that he hasn’t been president all these years”. In the interview, Obama goes on to also blame Iraq’s PM al-Maliki for the problems; never himself.

One more thing. Does Obama still have the U.S. backing the world’s evil dictators? It seems so:

Obama also acknowledged that the U.S. is dealing with a conundrum in Syria, as the U.S.-led military campaign against the Islamic State is helping Syrian President Bashar Assad, whom the U.N. has accused of war crimes.

“I recognize the contradiction in a contradictory land and a contradictory circumstance,” Obama said…

Bush practically would have been impeached, for saying that. (And Bush wouldn’t have said it because Bush did what he could, to push U.S. policy in the direction of overthrowing the world’s evil dictators.)

One more thing. Has Obama made it a thing of the past, that the U.S. might strike its enemies pre-emptively (or perhaps unilaterally, as the Left calls it)? Not so much:

Obama called the threat from the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, and other terror groups a more “immediate concern that has to be dealt with…” “…in terms of immediate threats to the United States, ISIL, Khorasan Group — those folks could kill Americans,” he said…

Both groups have been targeted by U.S. airstrikes in recent days…

Barack Obama: Just what the Left always *accused* Bush of being. And of course, the media lets him get away with it.

UPDATE: Some Democrats agree that it was the Obama White House, more than the U.S. intelligence community, which underestimated ISIS.

Former Rear Admiral Joe Sestak, a two-term Democratic member of the House of Representatives…appeared to surprise his MSNBC interlocutor when he noted that the only people who got ISIS wrong work in the Obama administration.

“If you remember back in January and February, the head — the general, the Defense Intelligence Agency, actually testified before the House and Senate that in 2014, ISIS would take over large swaths of territory,” the Navy veteran asserted. “In fact, at the time he testified, they had already seized Ramadi and Fallujah — 35 miles from Baghdad.”

A decade ago, Fallujah was a crucial victory for the Marines (some of whom gave their lives) against an earlier version of ISIS. I guess Obama threw it back.

UPDATE: A report that Obama was warned about ISIS in 2012. As Ed Morrissey puts it:

…the US intelligence community told him of the danger at the same time Obama ridiculed Mitt Romney during the presidential debates…for wanting a residual force in Iraq to prevent exactly what Romney warned would happen.

Kerry: No I never said anything about coordinating. If we are failing and failing miserably who knows what choice they might make.

Yeah, in the span of my own lifetime, America has gone from “Failure is not an option” to “If we fail miserably, maybe Iran can bail us out.” (Although Kerry, realizing his gaffe, tries to turn it around and accuse Senator Rubio of wanting the president’s half-assed scheme to fail.)

Tell me how America hasn’t gone into an accelerated decline under Democrat rule.

Obama Administration Treating Foley Beheading as a Criminal Matter

Have I mentioned lately that our country is run by moonbats?

ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER’S Justice Department is opening a criminal investigation into the beheading by Islamic State militants of American journalist James Foley, the latest move by the Obama administration to use the criminal justice system to pursue terrorists.

Above all else, the Obama Administration wants to make sure that Islamic terrorists get their Miranda Rights and their taxpayer-provided ACLU attorneys.

A real leader would not treat this situation as an episode of Law and Order: Beheadings Unit. A real leader would be saying, “These sub-human pieces of sh-t need to be wiped from the face of the Earth. We will strike and bomb them until they big for mercy; and then we will show them none.”

But… nope.

Meanwhile, Eric Holder will not be investigating the beating deaths of two white college students by a racist black mob in College Station, Texas.

As for President Obama, he is very teed off about the whole ISIS Situation.


ISIS and Obama’s Narcissism

So, yesterday, the Mohammedan savages of the Islamic State (ISIS) sawed off the head of an American journalist on live video, but no one on the left seems to care very much.

President Obama does not want to deal with ISIS and makes it clear that he does so only with the greatest reluctance. Some say this is out of fear of angering the far left base of his party, but that’s not it. It’s because just a few months ago, he was trash-talking ISIS as the “JV Squad” of Al Qaeda, whom he had put “on its heels” by personally making the “gutsy call” of taking out Osama bin Laden. (Because, you see, no other president would have had the guts to do that. [Well, Bill Clinton didn’t, and he bragged about his failure to kill Osama bin Laden.]}

No, Obama does not want to deal with ISIS because their barbarity is a reminder of his own disastrous foreign policy failure. To admit that this “JV Squad” is a problem would be admitting that he underestimated them, that his policies allowed them to become a threat. His ego simply will not permit him to confront his failure; that would require admitting that he failed.

Secretary of State John F. Kerry matches his boss for egocentric narcissism. He has very little interest in ISIS, his bailiwick is “Global Warming.” Not so much because he believes it is a genuine crisis as it is because he believes that his position will win him plaudits from the New York Times editorial page, the faculty lounge at Harvard, the international elites, and his fellow yachtsmen; the people that really matter.

The Obama Administration will do little to fight ISIS unless they do something really bad, like shoot a 292 pound thug who just robbed a convenience store, or their actions become an unignorable political liability to the Democrat Party. Until such time as that happens, ISIS can go on murdering and beheading as much as they please.

Taliban Celebrate Their Latest Victory

The Taliban must be beside themselves in awe of their amazing luck in getting Barack Hussein Obama as President of the United States. His de facto abandonment of Afghanistan means that a return to power by the Taliban is pretty much inevitable. And then on Friday, the Taliban was delighted to have five members of their top leadership released by President Obama in exchange for an American POW widely believed to be a deserter.

 In rare public statement, Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammad Omar hailed the five-for-one trade and thanked Qatar for mediating the deal.

“I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the entire Afghan Muslim nation, all the mujahideen and to the families and relatives of the prisoners for this big victory,” the world’s No. 1 terrorist said.

The president who won’t give an inch to Republicans seems very comfortable giving away entire countries to Mohammedan terrorists, and releasing Islamist War Criminals from Guantanamo.

Bergdahl’s pappy gave a pretty interesting speech at news that his son had been exchanged for five of the Taliban’s most brutal terrorists.

At the end of brief event, the soldier’s father, Bob Bergdahl, recited the most frequent phrase in the Koran — “Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim” —which means “In the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Compassionate.”

After Bergdahl finished his statement and his praise for Allah, Obama hugged him.

The Taliban echoed Bergdahl, saying the trade happened “due to the benevolence of Allah Almighty and the sacrifices of the heroic and courageous Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate.”

Imagine if FDR had traded Josef Mengele, Adolph Eichmann, Heinrich Himmler, Josef Goebbels, and Ernst Kaltenbrunner to the Nazis in exchange for one American deserter; and during the announcement of the release, the deserter’s father had yelled “Heil, Hitler!” That’s pretty much what happened here.

[Comparisons to the German National Socialist Workers Party are usually way over-the-top, but considering the goals and methods of the Taliban Islamists, they may actually fit in this case. Agree or Disagree?]

The Skeptic Inside Me: MH370 Probably Wasn’t Terrorism

Posted by V the K at 1:16 pm - March 19, 2014.
Filed under: War On Terror


No link, because we all know the story, and I’m just spit-ballin’.

The disappearance of flight 370 seems to have brought out a lot of people’s inner… terrorist spy novel author guy. The MFM and their allies in Government are releasing information that seems to contradict itself day-to-day. (“The transponder was turned off before the last radio contact.” “Oh, wait, no it wasn’t.”) And people have been weaving these bits of misinformation together to form theories that the aircraft has been flown to a secret Taliban/Al Qaeda/Uighur base for some nefarious purpose. And it may be so, but the Inner Skeptic has his doubts.

The thing that has bothered the Inner Skeptic from the beginning is, if you planned to use the plane in a terrorist attack, why acquire it in such a high-profile way? Every Government is on alert for it, now. If you wanted to load a plane with explosives or a nuke or a dirty bomb, why not just acquire one on the international used aircraft market? That would be much lower profile

Mr Occam is offering the Inner Skeptic a very sharp and shiny piece of metal, and says that the plane probably had a systems malfunction, possibly an on-board electrical fire, that incapacitated the plane’s transponder and communication systems, as well as the crew. It then flew on autopilot out over the Indian Ocean before running out of fuel and crashing into the sea.

Not very exciting, but it seems more reasonable than an elaborate terrorist aircraft-theft scheme.

And another reason it can’t be terrorism is because President Obama personally killed Osama bin Laden; thus ending terrorism forever so we can reduce our military to Great Depression levels. (If I understand the talking point correctly.)

Obama in Fantasyland, summed up

Posted by Jeff (ILoveCapitalism) at 10:37 pm - March 8, 2014.
Filed under: National Security,Obama Incompetence,War On Terror

From Stephen F. Hayes:

For five years, the Obama administration has chosen to see the world as they wish it to be, not as it is. In this fantasy world, the attack in Fort Hood is “workplace violence.” The Christmas Day bomber is an “isolated extremist.” The attempted bombing in Times Square is a “one-off” attack. The attacks in Benghazi are a “spontaneous” reaction to a YouTube video. Al Qaeda is on the run. Bashar al-Assad is a “reformer.” The Iranian regime can be sweet-talked out of its nuclear weapons program. And Vladimir Putin is a new, post-Cold War Russian leader.

In the real world, it was a pen pal of the late jihadist Anwar al-Awlaki who opened fire on soldiers at Fort Hood. The Christmas bomber was dispatched from Yemen, where he was instructed by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. The Times Square bomber was trained and financed by the Pakistani Taliban. Benghazi was a deliberate attack launched by well-known terrorist groups. Al Qaeda is amassing territory and increasing its profile. Assad is a brutal dictator, responsible for the deaths of more than 100,000 Syrians. The Iranian regime is firmly entrenched as the world’s foremost state sponsor of terror and remains determined to lead a nuclear state. And in Russia we face a Cold War throwback willing to use force to expand Russian influence.

And Vladimir Putin, it turns out, is who we thought he was. Unfortunately, so is Barack Obama.

SYrial appeals to emotion

Last night, President Obama made an emotional appeal for…America to NOT act in Syria. Transcript here.

If you only caught his conclusion, you’d never know that Obama has spent the last few weeks loudly war-mongering on Syria, seeking unilaterally to plunge America into a new war that over 60% of Americans oppose.

Obama started out his speech with a lot of “Oh! Won’t somebody please think of the children!” But he offered only a series of assertions (no evidence) on a crucial point: whether Syria’s President Assad is responsible for the chemical weapons attacks. (The intelligence is still weak; since the rebels are some nasty people, it’s still worth considering whether they did the attacks as a ‘false flag’ operation to draw the U.S. in, or if it was perhaps a rogue Syrian general.)

Obama then offered a thin connection to U.S. security interests: (more…)
