An Open Letter to Admiral William McRaven

Dear Admiral McRaven:

Your recent OPED, which was picked up by every liberal media outlet in the country, was sadly indicative of the current state of mind of many of our nation’s recently retired and active duty senior military leaders.

You stated that former CIA director John Brennan, “is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.”

Our National Security is Being Compromised

Port of Wilmington, Gulftainer
Nearly two years after the election of Donald Trump as president, America is still suffering the consequences of the deterioration of our national security under former President Barack Obama.  In a 10 August, 2018 article by Mary Fanning and Alan Jones, they have provided information on Obama’s billionaire Iraqi patron Nadhmi Shakir Auchi, who is now 80 and lives in London.  Auchi is being sued for $4 billion for providing chemical weapons used in the Halabja Massacre which occurred on March 16, 1988.  On that day, Saddam Hussein’s regime used those chemical weapons to kill over 5,000 Kurdish Arabian and wounded another 10,000 in Halabja, Kurdistan. The Iraqi High Criminal Court ruled it an act of genocide in 2010. Nadhmi Auchi is connected to Barack Obama through their mutual long term association with Syrian-American and convicted felon Antoin “Tony” Rezko. Auchi wired $3.5 million in 2005 to the then financially strapped Rezko in Chicago less than a month before Obama bought his mansion with the help of Rezko.  Such a coincidence!

What changes could be made that might prevent a nurse from killing people under her care?

Foul-mouthed Antifa demonstrators went on a rampage August 6 as they assaulted two high-profile conservative activists at a downtown Philadelphia restaurant for being conservatives and supporters of President Trump.

The attack came the day after Antifa smashed the windows at a U.S. Marine Corps recruiting office in Berkeley, Calif., during a leftist counter-protest of a “No to Marxism” rally. Twenty people were arrested. “Besides the damage to the Marine Corps post, Berkeley police also said ‘an extremist element among a large group’ damaged 21 city vehicles, setting one on fire, and slashed their tires,” Fox News reported.

Deported illegal tries to sneak back in to molest kids in a church; Detroit police, border patrol na

Yemaneh Gebremedhin, 53, an immigrant from Eritrea,
Do you think it would be OK with the left and the media if we kick people like this guy out of the country?

I don’t agree with most of the criticisms of ICE and the Border Patrol, but let’s assume for the sake of discussion that maybe some of these criticisms are worth taking seriously. Does that justify the all-out attacks on these agencies, not to mention local police departments? The left wants ICE abolished completely. California Democrats want to make it impossible for police officers to defend themselves against lethal threats.

Death to the Rule of Law

Death to the Rule of Law
Once upon a time, boys and girls, there was a country, unique in the world and in history, where the people were not subjects of the whims and delusional rule of tyrannical kings and other potentates, but lived free under the Rule of Law, laid out in a constitution written by the People themselves. It clearly enumerated the powers they granted to the government, not the other way ‘round. It also listed rights granted to them by God, not by government, and thus, “unalienable”.

Dodging a Terrorist Attack: More on the Carfentanil Connection

Caveat on the Carfentanil Connection
The article “Did we just dodge 9/11 2.0?” responded to revelations appearing in a July 27, 2018 CBC News report. Below is the sentence from that report describing the haul taken from the Danforth shooter’s brother’s home:

“Durham Region Police later obtained a search warrant and found 33 firearms, ammunition and more than 40 kilograms of the potentially lethal drug carfentanil.”

Typically, when journalists refer to multiple kilograms of a narcotic, say five kilos of heroin at the airport, they are referring to a narcotic in its pure form unless otherwise specified.
The Guardian article on the same seizure seems to confirm the purity of the substance in this sentence:

Was The Danforth Shooter a Member of a Toronto-based Radical Islamic Terrorist Cell?

Was The Danforth Shooter a Member of a Toronto-based Radical Islamic Terrorist Cell?
There is clear evidence that Muslim Faisal Hussain, ( aged 29) who shot fifteen people on the Danforth, killing two innocent girls, Juliana Kozis (age 10) and Reese Fallon (age 18), and injured thirteen other innocent people, was neither seriously mentally ill, nor that he had acted alone.  (Also see Saturday’s 1st off-the-mark breaking story by William Kay, ‘Did We Just Dodge 9/11 2.0’?)

Seemingly within minutes of the SIU (Special Investigations Unit), identifying Hussain as the Danforth shooter, an unsigned statement was suspiciously released to various media organizations, purportedly on behalf of the family.

This statement was promoted by such mainstream media as the CBC and the Toronto Star as the truth without any apparent due diligence or investigation.

The Violent Totalitarians

The Violent Totalitarians
We are constantly subjected to preaching from the self-righteous left – the Democrats, the “mainstream” media, the “education” system and the mindless Marxbots it produces – about ending violence in America. They mount their moral high horses and look down on us, the deplorable, bitter clingers, and demand an end to the right-wing inspired violence that they claim white America commits on our minorities and oh-so-innocent leftists on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the facts don’t even come close to this leftist-generated narrative.

For example, the fascist publisher of the yellow leftist propaganda rag, the New York Times, A. G. Sulzberger, complained on Sunday that President Donald Trump’s criticism of the “press” is creating a “potential” for violence against “journalists”. I put press and journalists in quotes because both have long since given up reporting news, and have become an integral part of the propaganda and indoctrination machine of the collectivist, totalitarian left. And then Sulzberger has the unabashed gall to whine about “potential” violence, violence that has not occurred, that exists only in the fevered minds of these leftist zealots, hell-bent on inciting more real violence against We, the People, the majority, the Americans who elected Donald Trump their president.

UK—National Archives Release Prime Ministerial 1993 Papers, Withhold Lockerbie File

Margaret Thatcher at the scene of the Lockerbie bombing
“[Operation El Dorado Canyon] turned out to be a more decisive blow against Libyan-sponsored terrorism than I could ever have imagined. … There were revenge killings of British hostages organized by Libya, which I bitterly regretted. But the much-vaunted Libyan counter attack did not and could not take place … There was a marked decline in Libyan-sponsored terrorism in succeeding years.”—British prime minister Margaret Thatcher—The Downing Street Years (Memoirs 1993, pp448-9)

“The Cabinet Office, which is responsible for the release of the records at the National Archives, declined to comment on the record when I asked, specifically, why files on the Scott inquiry and Lockerbie were being withheld. (…) That body has not had the inclination, and the staff of the National Archives have not had the clout, to argue with Whitehall departments, and in particular the Cabinet Office, the powerful bastion of official secrecy at the heart of government. Until and unless they do, or the act is reformed, we will continue to be prevented from knowing about, and learning from, our recent history.”—Richard Norton-Taylor—Guardian (July 25 2018)

On July 24 2018, the National Archives released files from the Prime Minister’s Office and Cabinet Office predominantly covering the year of 1993. A Lockerbie file dated 1992-93 has been withheld, as well as four files relating to the Scott arms-to-Iraq inquiry. This amazing ‘coincidence’, unnoticed by the media, deserves some explanation for it may not be a coincidence at all. Follow us on Twitter: @Intel_Today

Germany’s Slap on the Wrist for Muslim Anti-Semitism

On April 25th, thousands in Berlin rallied for the “Berlin Tragt Kippa” or “Berlin Wears a Kippah” march. The march had been called after an Israeli Arab Christian had worn a Kippah, a Jewish religious head covering, to test the level of anti-Semitism only to be violently attacked by a Syrian Muslim refugee screaming anti-Semitic slurs. The video of the attack went viral and the march went viral too.

People of good will wore kippahs, took selfies and no one was assaulted by a Syrian refugee.

Our Counter-Intelligence System Is Broken

Our Counter-Intelligence System Is Broken
There is no question that the United States is the number one target of every potential enemy hostile intelligence service in the world.  Yet, as recently exposed, there is no national-level effort to counter this threat.  Our free and open society is a spy’s paradise, and actually facilitates our enemies’ penetration.  Michael Waller of the Center For Security Policy stated this about our lead counter-intelligence organization: “with few exceptions, the FBI has very little to show that it has the strategy and leadership to cut off much more than low-hanging fruit.”  A perfect example of this is Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s recent indictment of 12 Russian intelligence agents who are safely tucked away in Russia and will never be brought to trial.

It is part of the quickly expanding franchise based on the absolute best thing on television right now, which is the Friday/Saturday night blowtorch known as Live PD.

While Live PD shows the events that occur during live ridealongs with various departments each Friday and Saturday night, PDCam shows the often-harrowing video that’s produced by dashcams, bodycams and, in this case, a glasses-cam worn by an officer.

The Arabian Nightmare of the West

The Arabian Nightmare of the West
In 1983, Robert Irwin wrote a fantasy novel titled ‘The Arabian Nightmare’ about a young Englishman who was dragged into a whirlwind of sinister events in Cairo. The Arabian nightmare he learned was like a disease or a curse. It was terrible and obscene, monotonous, but yet fearful. It brought countless sufferings without the realization of such…

The Arabian nightmare has come to the West. It has come invisibly and struck it like an evil curse. It subdued Western people gradually - through arsons, sexual violence, “Salafi” vice squad and Muslim parties, under the slogans of tolerance and multiculturalism.

Heroin deaths surpass gun homicides for first time: Why would we legalize drugs while banning guns?
I would like to ask a question.

According to the gun-grabbers on the American left, it’s a foregone conclusion that if something is associated with a lot of problems, you need to “control” that something, by which they mean to severely restrict it or preferably ban it. Well, sort of. This applies when the thing that’s associated with problems is something the left already doesn’t like, and the left does not like guns.

The Iranian Spy Who Created Two Terror States in Israel

The Iranian Spy Who Created Two Terror States in Israel
When the Oslo deal that would create two Islamic terror states inside Israel came up for a vote in the Knesset, the legislator whose vote helped it pass is the same man now accused of spying for Iran.

The strange story of Gonen Segev, doctor, Minister of Energy, drug smuggler, Nigerian exile and now accused Iranian spy, is also that of the dirty politics behind the peace process. It wasn’t idealism that made the deal with the PLO. It was dirty backroom deals with dangerously unprincipled politicians.

Segev’s cousin had testified in court that he was “a pathological liar who makes excuses and evades responsibilities for his actions.” But the same is true of the Israeli left which brought Segev on board.
