He Said That? 2/12/16

“From Mustaf Amin, a political leader of Levant Front, which has received US weapons and is one of the largest rebel alliances fighting Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah for control of Aleppo, Syria.”


From Mustaf Amin, a political leader of Levant Front, which has received US weapons and is one of the largest rebel alliances fighting Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah for control of Aleppo, Syria.

The rebels now have a responsiblity to change the way they fight. If we don’t get support from our allies in a major way, it will need to transform into guerrilla warfare.

The Wall Street Journal, “Rebels Switch to Guerrilla Tactics,” 2/12/16.

The article states that the rebels “have already started turning to guerrilla tactics such as assassinations, ambushes and hit-and-run attacks.”

If the Levant Front was a US enemy instead of an ally (and it may be, one can never tell in the Middle East) the US government and The Wall Street Journal would label their new tactics terrorism, not guerrilla warfare.

Give Me Liberty

This is from the BarbWire.

At the end of last week, I read an article in which former DHS employee Phillip Haney states that just before an all but successful terrorist attack on Christmas Day, 2009 , “I was ordered by my superiors at the Department of Homeland Security to delete or modify several hundred records of individuals tied to designated Islamist terror groups like Hamas from the important federal database, the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS).”

According to Haney’s report, this was part of a systematic pattern in which “the Obama administration ordered removed from the travel and national security databases…the kind of information that, if properly assessed, could have prevented subsequent Islamist attacks…”

Mr. Haney decries what he sees as “our leaders’ willingness to compromise the security of citizens for the ideological rigidity of political correctness….”In her commentary on Haney’s statements, Pamela Geller asks the relevant question…

Thinking about death…REALLY???

Culture Monk


~ Rarely a week goes by that I don’t think about death. That might seem like an odd thing to be running around in my mind, but because I interact with so many clients each week, and because so many different people might end up sitting down at my coffee table, it is rare that a week goes by that someone doesn’t tell me about a death in their family or circle of friends.

Some of the people I looked up to the most in life are dead. Two uncles in particular went out of their way to spend time with me when I was a young boy, and they forever left a positive imprint on my life.

Western Culture tends to dismiss the subject of death. We hide it away in the white sterile rooms of hospitals. We use hushed language and change the words we use to talk…

Crusader Corner: Boko Haram Female Suicide Bomber Kills 58 in Nigerian “Safe Haven”

The religion of peace at work

The Tactical Hermit

Security officers stand near abandoned items at the scene of a blast in the northern Nigerian city of Kano, on July 24, 2014. At least one person was killed and eight other people injured when a blast ripped through a crowded bus station in Kano, northern Nigeria, police and witnesses said today. The explosion happened at about 3:00pm (1400 GMT) at the New Motor Park in the predominantly Christian Sabon Gari neighbourhood, which has previously been targeted by Boko Haram militants.

A camp that was supposed to be a shelter from terrorism and violence instead became an instant death zone for dozens in Nigeria this week.

At least 58 people were killed and another 78 injured when two female bombers detonated their suicide vests, according to emergency relief officials. The victims were in a camp for people who had been displaced by Boko Haram violence in Nigeria’s Borno State.

As horrendous as the attack was, it could have been worse. One of the bombers backed out at the last minute.

“There were three female bombers who entered the camp around 6:30 a.m. (local time) disguised as displaced persons. Two of them set off their explosives in the camp while the third refused after realizing her parents and siblings were in the camp,” said Satomi Alhaji Ahmed, head of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency.

The bombers struck Tuesday at the camp…

The Empire Swallowed the Republic

“Here is my solution. End our occupation of Europe and Korea. Stop the endless war in Afghanistan. Close every military base in the world that does not directly protect the Homeland. Build effective walls on our borders and use our returning troops to garrison them. Instead of providing military aid to other nations refit, retrain, and retain our own military so that it is unthinkable that anyone would challenge us.

And what shall be our new national goal?

Let us dedicate ourselves to once again becoming not only the preeminent space faring nation but also the nation that sets its sights on the active exploration and colonization of the Solar System. I believe if we build the Starship Enterprise in earth orbit no one would dare becoming the target for its phaser banks. The technology that would evolve from a renewed move into space would expand our lives and offset the cost.”

Dr. Robert Owens Chronicles the History of the Future

Take a look at the size of the defense budget in America today as a percentage of federal spending.

In 2015 it accounted for 53.71% of the entire budget.  Now try to image what would happen to our economy if that spending was stopped and not immediately replaced by other federal spending.  See the problem?  We may have been warned by President Eisenhower about the military industrial complex.  However the thing he forgot to tell us was that the military industrial complex had already won and that we as a nation are dependent on military spending which is dependent on continuing crisis, wars, and garrison duties around the world.

In other words when our most idealistic sing give peace a chance while they are giddy in their idealism, if we chose to follow their advice it would lead us all to depression.

What is the result of all this?
