Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Browsing Posts in Homeland Security

Much has happened as of late. The TSA has been in the limelight with this 95% failure rate in screening passengers. If that isn’t unnerving in and of itself, it has failed to detect 73 airport workers who are listed on the terrorist watch list. The excuse: not having complete access to the lists. There always seems to be a good excuse but excuses just don’t give me a cozy feeling when ineptness could cause me to die. And more money seems to be the cure for the left but when did money ever cure ineptness? We have seen daily with this government that it doesn’t work and that is the MANAGEMENT SIDE OF THE BUSINESS! What about the lost badges? Hundreds of them missing and there are no answers why. Feel safe yet? You think the government has your back? Think again.

Let me get to the real concern for this post. The Patriot Act came up for review and extension. People have been very concerned about the NSA and mega data from phone calls, etc., etc.,etc. And this is the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution that they site. Re:

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The people are suppose to have protections against the government and their snooping. Reason being, too much information in the wrong hands is dangerous to individuals. But sometimes people must willingly give the government EXTENSIVE information; about every piece of information we need to keep our public accounts secure from invading forces, i.e. Identity thieves. For some individuals the government has every bit of that information PLUS interviews, very private things asked through polygraph, etc. this information, in the wrong hands, can not only ruin someone’s complete life, but put them at risk for blackmail as well as endanger the individual, family members, personal and professional relations. This becomes the ultimate worst case scenario that no one wants to endure.

China hacked the OPM. This isn’t about Hillary explicitly but the administration in general. This information should never had an outside access. No sensitive information should have outside access. Here is a site talking about classified and secure information. So what is wrong with this picture? Here is the code. It appears that the government agencies are riddled with “oops” and “incompetents”. What we need to do is go back to paper cause computers sure aren’t cutting it where the government is concerned.

Sorry. I wanted to get this out earlier but the transcript wasn’t available. I watched it live and was very excited through the whole speech. Unfortunately it wasn’t the leader of MY country making me feel good, but that of ANOTHER country. This speech was needed to be said and heard. READ THE WHOLE THING SO THAT YOU UNDERSTAND ITS IMPORTANCE.

There were many Congress critters absent, although you could not tell because this was a PACKED HOUSE! Even Feinstein was there after she said she wouldn’t be. Pelosi was there, annoyingly and continuously turning around to talk to others. Who was very conspicuously absent was Plugs Biden. Well, his schedule says he is doing this. Not sure what it is but it is consistent with this administration: when things are in crisis mode, there is always time to f#^koff and be political. Nature of the beast.

When you read this transcript, you will see things like “the enemy of my enemy is my enemy” and “Israel can stand up for itself”. He is giving Obama a chance to do the right thing but he is stating that the U.S. will not keep Israel from doing what is necessary for its protection. Bravo BiBi, bravo.

As I await the speech to AIPAC from Netanyahu, I hear from members of Congress who will snub him when he gives his speech to Congress tomorrow. Most of the Obama administration “heads” will be conveniently out of town. They’ve had enough notice to redo their schedules to be present , which means this is really just a snub. Here is one article on the issue.

Now when Amb. Samantha Power spoke, she said many things. She got some applause but then raised her eyebrows each time, like she had just hit a home run. I, personally, thought it a disgusting display, as my interpretation was that of “politics being played”. To strengthen that belief, she stated that Obama reiterated that Iran WILL NOT GET A NUCLEAR WEAPON. PERIOD. What does “will not get” mean? Won’t be able to buy one? Won’t be able to make one? Won’t be able to steal one? All ambiguous and subjective from my point of view. Above all, we have another “period” statement. That tells me a lie is being perpetrated and something underhanded is moving forward; based, of course, on past behavior from this administration.

When Netanyahu spoke, he only spoke as to why he would speak to Congress tomorrow. He believes that there is a strong relationship with the U.S. and Obama. He only wants to let our governing body know how Much Israel is in danger. But there are ads from Jstreet, supposedly objective and conservative Jews, who say this is a bad idea for both Israel and the U.S. I did some research into Jstreet. This article should sum it up pretty well. All in all, there seems to be great opposition towards this visit and speech from Netanyahu. I won’t ask why because I already know. Unfortunately, Israel, on this subject, also has our best interests in hand because our administration is willing to weaken the world and put everyone in jeopardy by allowing a nuclear terrorist state. People who have openly declared destruction of their perceived enemies, of which we are one.

And then you have John Kerry, chief lackey for all affairs foreign, trying to assemble some type of coherent speak on the issue. When he stated that “Israel is safer” because of the interim agreement with Iran. After all these Obama years of indoctrination, this should be easily believed by the masses, no? Trying to remember what that interim agreement was. Something like we will lift sanctions and Iran will stop buying and using centrifuges while allowing inspectors to see every aspect of their nuclear program. How is that working out?

We still don’t know what happened in Libya. The reason why is that the Obama administration has been lying to us and covering the guilty. It has been of 3 years since Usama bin-Laden was killed and his stronghold documents and intelligence was confiscated. Steve Hayes has been dogging these stories forever but still we have gotten no results or answers. Why not? Read his last major article on this subject. Flynn is a good man. For decades, the inability or snubbing of intelligence agencies “co-operating” has been a major issue with many, including me. Because of these arrogant directors needing the god-power feeling, intelligence and safety/security suffer greatly. What is interesting about this Hayes report is where he points to how diverse bin-Laden’s network was and who the “players” are. He states that ISIS was mentioned and involved, as well Iran. Being left in the dark this way for selfish political reasons seems highly unethical, bordering treason, as far as I’m concerned. If these documents ever do get completely disseminated to the public, how will we feel if we find out that ISIS could have been stopped before getting started, as well other terror programs and activities? We really do need to hold our leaders culpable and imprison more of them.

You might think that with the recent ISLAMIC terror attack on the people of France, the world would be more outraged by these people and want to reign in the “nice talk” and “nice deeds” towards them. Charlie Hebdo magazine produced its most recent copy with Mohammed on the front and the caption “All Is Forgiven”. Who is forgiving who? Seems a pretty dumb statement however you twist it around. But it isn’t as dumb as what Obama did last night. He released 5 MORE GITMO ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, bringing the total to 20 since December 8th. He did this in light of what just happened in France. Why?
It would appear that Obama believes these detainees to be combatants from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and therefor need to be released since those wars are declared “over”. I thought these detainees were ISLAMIC TERRORISTS and I don’t know that their war was declared over. Matter of fact, I don’t know that Obama has ever admitted that there is a war on terror. Just another nail for his coffin. Problem being, no one seems to care enough to DO anything about it.

On another stupid note, it appears that Duke University wants to continue with its “political correctness” stance, as well its anti-Christian stance, by allowing a Friday Muslim call to prayer. Hum. What could possibly be wrong with this picture?

Woes In NYC

Seems that a great humanitarian doctor has caused just a little stir in NYC. A “doctor without borders” ( sounds like a tree huger without common sense) has come back after a month of aiding Ebola victims in West Africa. And he self monitored right up to the point of 103 degree temperature. Too bad he didn’t self quarantine instead. Yet to see how this will turn out and what fellow NYers REALLY feel about him. Oh, and the Dem parrot governor and the Dem parrot mayor say there is nothing to worry about and that everything is under control. Right!

Under control would be this Islamic psycho from California (another liberal state transplant) who decides to attack police with a hatchet. Recent convert to Islam? Of course, but we won’t mention that. This rides on the heels of another whacko Islam convert in Canada who tried to kill members of their parliament. I don’t know how much Canadians like their members of Parliament but I wish these lefty or Islamic terrorists would do us a favor and at least take out some of the US parliament members. Two birds with one stone as it were. We do these guys want to do harm to civilians who have no control over affairs that bring anger to terrorists? I don’t get it.

For years, there has been a poster here, sending out the alarm about Muslim extremists living among us and how the intent was to turn America towards Islam. It has been happening in Europe for many years now and the troubles have compounded to the breaking point. This poster was scoffed at and dismissed as a “nutjob”. I know the detractors would never apologize for not giving her legitimacy, but I would hope that you may start to re-think the warning and heed the current signs.

So what is going on? Seems that ISIS has created some type of allure to weak minded/non-directed individuals. So they decide to upturn their “normal” lives and go to help the cause. This probably could have been achieved with stricter parenting but that would just be a guess.

But what causes the individuals to make drastic changes in their lives this way? Well, reading this may give you an idea.

Governments are becoming aware and thinking of drastic measures before it gets out of hand. Drastic measures ALWAYS seem to relate to loss of freedoms in America. Would you allow it? Do we need it? Could it be different if we didn’t have a spineless jellyfish (jellyfish don’t have spines anyway) in the WH? Questions you may want to answer and have your Congress critters also answer. For me, if we get bombers over here I hope they start small…..say, with using exploding golf balls. I don’t play golf.
