Did you miss Tinseltown’s latest political correctness powwow? Preening celebrities showed their solidarity with Ferguson, Mo., at the MTV Video Music Awards show this week. Rapper Common led the convocation, preachifying about the positive impact of hip-hop music on society as a “powerful instrument of social change” and “truth.”

Cameras showed drug-addled gangsta rapper Snoop Dogg bowing his head and flashing a peace sign during a “moment of silence” for Ferguson. MTV President Stephen Friedman aired public service announcements plying social justice messages. “It’s a call to action to our audience that we have to confront our own bias head-on before we can truly create change,” Friedman pontificated.

Spare me the shizzle and hypocri-dizzle.

While these Hollywood do-gooders gnash their Zoom!-brightened teeth over violence in the black community, they turn their Restylane-filled cheeks from the bullet-riddled violence glamorized by their own industry.

The night before the VMAs, a gunman barged into the 1Oak nightclub in West Hollywood and shot rap mogul Suge Knight six times. He survived.

It wasn’t the first time Knight had been targeted for apparent revenge. And it wasn’t the first time the VMA party scene had been rattled by violent gunfire. In 2005, Knight was shot at a pre-VMA party in Miami hosted by rapper Kanye West.

Knight, founder of the Death Row Records empire and possessor of a mile-long rap sheet, reportedly refuses to cooperate with L.A. police, who are investigating the roles of the infamous Bloods and Crips rival street gangs in the crime. The Bloods-affiliated Knight’s reign of criminal terror has been well documented by law enforcement and rap aficionados. A climax: the still-unsolved shooting deaths of rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, which multiple insiders believe the record executive ordered.

Fellow thug rapper Chris Brown (who remains on probation for beating up former girlfriend/pop queen Rihanna) was at the West Hollywood party last weekend, reportedly throwing Bloods gang signs. Also on scene: gangsta rapper and Bloods-promoter The Game.

Fun fact: The last time “Game” was in the news, he had released album artwork depicting Jesus as a Bloods gang member — complete with gold chains and the signature red bandana of the Compton Piru Bloods gang.

Not to be outdone, Crips-affiliated Snoop Dogg — a marquee Death Row Records “artist” with Dr. Dre before their falling out with Knight — boasts his own vicious criminal gang history ranging from felony drug possession to assault and multiple deadly weapons possessions charges. And that’s not including a deadlocked jury outcome on voluntary manslaughter charges after rival Crips gang member Phillip Woldermarian was gunned down by shots alleged to have come from a car Snoop and two fellow gang members were in at the time.

Corporate Hollywood liberals have made billions of dollars off of hardcore, gang-promoting, gun-toting, cop-bashing, misogynist rap. The corrosive effects on the black community are incalculable. Grandstanding about Ferguson is a convenient distraction from the rank hypocrisy of violence profiteers.

As you might expect, MTV didn’t call for a “moment of silence” about the latest Suge Knight shooting. There was no need for one. When it comes to holding themselves accountable for fostering black-on-black violence, Hollywood’s gangstas have adopted a systematic code of silence.

Suspected Syrian jihadi bomb maker extradited to U.S.

by on September 1st, 2014

Despite the need for human intelligence regarding Syria, Iraq and Islamic terrorist groups, the Obama administration proudly announced on Thursday that a radical Muslim from Syria, who was extradited by the police in Turkey to Phoenix, Arizona, and who faces a number of federal terrorism charges, appeared in federal criminal court instead of being interviewed and interrogated for intelligence, according to a Justice Department report.

The suspect, Ahmad Ibrahim Al-Ahmad, is charged with a number of counts, including conspiracy to use improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, in plots against U.S. fighting forces and military vehicles during the Iraqi insurgency between 2005 and 2010, according to an FBI statement.

“Al-Ahmad’s charges also include conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, conspiracy to damage or destroy U.S. government property by means of an explosive and conspiracy to commit extraterritorial murder of a U.S. national, among others,” according to the indictment.

In addition, the 39-year-old Syrian allegedly supplied materials to an Iraqi insurgent group, known as the 1920 Revolution Brigades, for use in making IEDs to target U.S. and coalition military personnel during that five-year period. The 1920 Revolution Brigades is a Sunni terrorist group in Iraq, which is comprised of former members of the disbanded Iraqi army.

“While this capture should be applauded, it’s still a mystery to me why we would bring this terrorist into the United States and treat him like a bank robber or swindler. He should be in Gitmo [Guantanamo Bay, Cuba] being interrogated for intelligence purposes. This [Obama] administration is really dysfunctional,” said former anti-terrorism unit police detective Joseph Kiernan.

Justice Department and FBI documents reveal that Al-Ahmad obtained the components needed by bomb makers to create radio-controlled IEDs. The dual-use bomb parts were purchased by the suspect from a company headquartered in the Arizona, according to court documents.

The prosecutors and FBI agents said, “[T]hat the parts [given to the 1920 Revolution Brigades] were believed to be used in a 2007 attack near the Baghdad International Airport, that left three U.S. soldiers dead. Also, the IEDs allegedly manufactured in a Baghdad home by Al-Ahmad were used in a 2007 attack that killed one U.S. soldier and [wounded] four others.”

Al-Ahmad was originally charged in May 2011 and but wasn’t arrested until he crossed the border from Syria into Turkey. He was held by the Turkish police until Wednesday when he was extradited from Turkey to Arizona, according to the FBI statement.

Al-Ahmad is facing a maximum life sentence and his trial is scheduled for Oct. 7, 2014 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Former DOJ attorney accuses Obama, Kerry, Clinton of RICO charges

by on September 1st, 2014

A former criminal prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice on Thursday filed a RICO ( Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) complaint in federal court in the District of Columbia against President Barack Obama and present or former members of his administration — including Hillary Clinton and John Kerry — for their alleged material support for the terrorist group Hamas.

According to a 54-page RICO complaint filed in civil court by attorney Larry Klayman, who served in the Reagan Department of Justice, the defendants in the complaint created and used a State Department “slush fund” to provide the Islamic terrorist group Hamas millions of taxpayer dollars despite the group being listed as a designated terrorist organization.

Hamas is an extremist Muslim organization considered a subsidiary of Egyptian-based Muslim Brotherhood. Klayman, on behalf of several family members of dual-citizens (Israel and the United States) who were killed by Hamas members, filed the complaint against: President Barack Hussein Obama; Hamas; Secretary of State John Kerry; former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; Ban Ki-Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations; and President Obama’s half-brother Malik Obama who is listed as an officer with the Barack H. Obama Foundation, a U.S. corporation.

While Obama’s sycophants call Klayman a Republican partisan, his past lawsuits were filed against Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and other Democrats and Republicans.

Klayman, who founded Judicial Watch and later Freedom Watch, while a DOJ prosecutor is credited with helping to break up AT&T in a landmark case. On behalf of the complainants he has filed a civil lawsuit –Case No. 14-1484 — under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act “RICO” for criminal acts. Freedom Watch is a nonpartisan, nonprofit government watchdog that claims to use the civil court system to expose political and government corruption regardless of party affiliation.

The complaint alleges that defendants laundered cash and gave it to the terrorist group Hamas who control the Gaza Strip that borders Israel. “This money has been been foreseeably used to buy rockets and construct tunnels to attack Israel and terrorize and kill American and dual American-Israeli citizens who reside or are located in Israel,” according to Klayman.

The RICO complaint filed on Thursday accuses President Obama, Secretary Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and others of being involved in a conspiracy to provide hundreds of millions of U.S. dollars to Hamas. While the money was given as humanitarian aid for the Palestinian people it was allegedly used to purchased weapons including guns, rocket propelled grenades and launchers, missiles, and other military contraband. It was allegedly used to also purchase materials to build hidden tunnels to be used by terrorists to attack targets in Israel.

According to news stories from Voice of America (VOA) and the New York Times, when Hamas’ chief financial officer’s bomb-charred auto was examined by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) “they confirmed that these U.S.

Illegal alien amnesty not Islamic terrorism Obama’s top priority

by on September 1st, 2014

While the world continues to fret over the power and cruelty being shown by groups such as Islamic State (ISIS), al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), Al Shabaab, Boko Haram, Hamas and other terrorist organizations, President Barack Obama appears more concerned with his illegal immigration policy and its political ramifications, according to a news outlets on Friday.

Visibly angry over the uncooperative U.S. Congress, Obama repeatedly threatened lawmakers — and a majority of American citizens — that he’ll resort his perceived executive power to make the desired program a reality. One of his possible actions would be to wait until after the November elections to create new immigration regulations by fiat, claim opponents of his alleged lawless, unconstitutional overreach.

Political strategists, such as attorney and consultant Mike Baker, believe that the Obama White House will send up trial balloons in order to gauge public reaction to measures that will shield millions of immigrants from deportation. Whenever questioned about deportations — or lack thereof — the talking points being circulated by POTUS’ sycophants in the media are that the Obama has deported more illegal aliens than any previous administration and that he has tightened border security. Both points, however, have been proven wrong by members of the U.S. Border Patrol and members of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement directorate.

At a White House news conference on Thursday that was supposed to address his strategy for fighting terrorists in Iraq and Syria, Obama told reporters that his immigration plan needs to be studied further by his administration.

On numerous occasions this year, Obama complained about lawmakers’ failing to pass immigration legislation and directed his new Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to come up with his own proposals “reforms” that wouldn’t depend on congressional approval. However, more than two months later He still hasn’t received Johnson’s proposals, claim immigration and border security activist groups.

White House spokespeople are telling their ‘comrades’ in America’s newsrooms that Obama hopes to dictate a number of broad changes, such as a new program similar to the one he established in 2012 for so-called Dreamers _ those illegally brought to the U.S. as children. It’s a strategy known by some as ‘death by a thousand cuts,’” said former law enforcement and military officer Leonard Manchion.

Obama blames social media and news shows for dismal world view

by on September 1st, 2014

President Barack Obama on Friday blamed social media and the abundance of news sources for giving Americans the impression that the world during his administration is coming apart at the seams, according to news outlets that covered his fundraiser during a Democratic National Committee picnic in the town of Purchase, New York.

“I can see why a lot of folks are troubled. The world’s always been messy … we’re just noticing now in part because of social media,” Obama said to the adoring crowd, who paid what amounted to many Americans’ yearly salaries just to rub elbows with POTUS.

The low-approval rated President claimed that current crises in the United States, such as the tsunami of illegal aliens flagrantly sneaking into the United States, and the violence and destruction across the world in nations such as Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, Somalia, Egypt, and other locations, do not equal the situation the Americans faced during the Cold War.

“First of all, Obama isn’t the only president to face news organizations such as CNN, MSNBC, Fox News Channel and talk radio. Second, the Internet wasn’t just created while he’s been in the White House and both Clinton and Bush were slammed on the world wide web. In Obama’s case, the perception that the world is more chaotic while he’s been sitting in the Oval Office than it was when Bill Clinton and George W. Bush sat there is reality! Countries that were at least at peace are now filled with violence and death,” said former police chief and now director of corporate security Howard Cusack.

“That includes his ancestral home of Kenya, where Islamists are running rampant and Christians are being persecuted and killed,” Cusack added. “Doesn’t anyone want to know why Michelle Obama gave up on those African girls kidnapped in Nigeria by Islamic radicals?”

The barbeque with the “swells” was held at the home of Robert Wolf, Obama’s golf partner and the former president of UBS Investment Bank. The ticket prices started at $15,000 and went up to $35,000 per couple for upwards of 200 supporters to hobnob with the president.

“You can bet the farm that none of these people are feeling the pain and degradation of the real world. Like their beloved leader, they live in a world of ‘should be” rather than in the world most people must face,” said political strategist Mike Baker.

“To these limousine liberals, their mistakes are merely the cost of leading the American people — those pesky unwashed masses — to the promised land. But Moses they ain’t,” Baker quipped.

Border security: Islamist terror attack on U.S. from Mexico imminent

by on September 1st, 2014

Muslim terrorists who have been recruiting and training future jihadists south of the U.S. border are believed to be in the Mexico‘s already violent drug cartel hub Ciudad Juarez, according to a Friday report by one of the nation’s leading government watchdogs. The radical Islamists are plotting high-profile attacks within the United States using car bombs or other vehicles they’ve loaded with improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

According to the “Inside the Beltway” public-interest group Judicial Watch, federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed that a bulletin regarding imminent terrorist attack(s) on the border was sent out to local government officials such as police chiefs and sheriffs. Federal agents from the Homeland Security, Justice and Defense Departments’ and their agencies are all on high alert and they received directives to aggressively to follow up on all leads and sources including their CI’s (confidential informants).

Government sources have revealed that the ultra-radical and merciless Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) — the group that transformed itself from al-Qaida in Iraq (AQII) — has been confirmed to be in Juarez, a known hotbed of drug cartels across Mexican borderline from El Paso, Texas. Even without the dreaded Islamic terrorists, violence and crime are a part of everyday life in Juarez and the U.S. State Department frequently issues travel warnings to American citizens and others planning to visit there. In fact, one such travel alert was issued by the State Department only a few days ago.

This troubling report follows a number of news reports that claim U.S. intelligence operatives have “picked up increased chatter among Islamist terror networks approaching the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.”

What Judicial Watch, police officials and other stakeholders fear is that President Barack Obama admitted that the federal government doesn’t have a strategy to combat ISIS. “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” the commander-in-chief said during a White House press conference. “I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggest that folks are getting a little further ahead of [sic] what we’re at than what we currently are.”

According to an Oct. 26, 2011, Examiner news story:

“In 2008, the Bush Administration’s chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine General Peter Pace, warned members of the Senate Armed Services Committee that members of radical Islamic groups were active in South America recruiting and training terrorists. Yet, the Democrat-controlled Senate ignored Gen. Pace’s warning.”

Witnessing a Failed Presidency

by on September 1st, 2014

By Alan Caruba

When we elect someone—anyone—to the office of President, it is only natural that we attribute great political skills, intellect, and judgment to that man. We want to believe we have selected someone with the ability to do what must be done in a dangerous and very complex world.
This may explain why Presidents who have presided in times of war are more highly regarded than those that have not. Washington brought the nation into being by patiently pursuing a war with Great Britain, Lincoln saw the Civil War to a successful conclusion, preserving the Union

The last century offered two world wars and several lesser ones, Korea and Vietnam. Voters put Franklin D. Roosevelt in office in 1933 and then kept him there until his death in 1945 just before the conclusion of World War Two. They had no wish to disrupt his conduct of the war with anyone else. It fell to Harry Truman to wrap up World War Two and to pursue the Korean War to repulse communist North Korea’s invasion.

The Vietnam War had its genesis in the JFK years, but it was Lyndon Johnson who committed to it with a massive influx of infantry and massive bombing, neither of which was able to deter the North Vietnamese from uniting the nation. Having lied the nation into the war LBJ concluded at the end of his first term which he had won in a landslide that he should not run again given the vast level of unhappiness with the conflict.
The failure to respond in a strong way to the Iranians who took U.S. diplomats hostage left Jimmy Carter with a single failed term in office. Neither domestically, nor in the area of foreign affairs did he demonstrate strength or much understanding.

After 9/11 George W. Bush used U.S. military strength to send a message to the world in general and al Qaeda in particular. By the end of his second term, a completely unknown young Democrat emerged as the Democratic Party candidate for President by campaigning on a promise to get out of Iraq and offering “hope and change.”

Barack Hussein Obama captured the imagination of the voters. He was black and many Americans wanted to demonstrate that an African-American could be elected President. He was relatively young, regarded as eloquent, and seemed to project a cool, self-composed approach throughout his campaign.
The only problem was that he lacked a resume beyond having been a “community organizer.” He had graduated from Harvard Law School, but all of his academic and other public records had been put under seal so they could not be examined. Twice he ran against relatively lackluster, older men who did not possess much charisma, if any.
In his first term, his “stimulus” to lift the economy out of recession was a trillion-dollar failure. By his second term, however, the singular first term “achievement” was the passage of the Affordable Patient Care Act—Obamacare. When finally ready to enroll people it instantly demonstrated technical and policy problems.

The Imaginary Non-Interventionist

by on August 31st, 2014

Ever since Hillary broke with Barack over the virtues of doing stupid stuff, the editorial columnists have been pretending that she has some new and exciting foreign policy.

She doesn’t.

The left has been denouncing her as an interventionist, the second coming of George W. Bush. They just can’t explain how Hillary is any more of an interventionist than her old boss who bombed Libya, is bombing Iraq and wanted to bomb Syria. Other places he’s bombing include Yemen and Pakistan. And all that is without taking account of his attempt to implement the Arab Spring’s regime changes across the region with tragic and disastrous results.

The closest thing to a disagreement between them was over Syria and considering that Obama was days away from getting into Syria, that’s not much of a firewall.

Hillary took a cheap shot at Obama. The media spent so much time discussing the cheap shot and their hugging summit that it completely ignored the fact that it was a cheap shot with no substance to it. Hillary and Obama have the same ideological DNA and get their ideas from the same narrow circles. Hillary doesn’t have a better or worse foreign policy. They both have the same foreign policy.

Underneath the manufactured political reality show drama that happens when a candidate of the same party as a lame duck administration tries to explain why she’s so different than the miserable failure now holding down the job is the sober reality that they’re both reading from the same scripts.

How could they not?

Hillary Clinton is trying to distance herself from the foreign policy of an administration in which she served as Secretary of State. Hillary is trying to distance herself from her own approach to international relations That’s a level of schizophrenia that is a bit extreme even for a woman who sheds accents, identities and sports team affinities the way that a snake sheds its skin.

Hillary isn’t disavowing Obama. She’s disavowing Hillary.

The newly reinvented Hillary is suddenly pro-Israel after spending years berating the Jewish State. She suddenly realized the importance of having a coherent foreign policy after having the same confused position on Iraq as John Kerry. She is suddenly full of the wisdom that was missing until last year. And she’s somehow more of an interventionist than Obama even though they were both intervening in the exact same places.

Hillary is an interventionist. But so is Obama.

The non-interventionist, like the pacifist, is a mythical woodland creature who appears in the fables of many cultures. He isn’t however to be found in the vicinity of Washington D.C.

Break down the arguments of the non-interventionist and you will find a set of conspiracy theories explaining why every previous intervention was motivated by bad faith, secret agendas and racism. The non-interventionist doesn’t reject intervention; instead he contends that every previous intervention failed because it was carried out at the behest of the banks, the military-industrial complex, the CIA, the Jews, American arrogance and the oil industry.

But the non-interventionist who makes it into the White House is free to intervene as much as he likes because his motives are pure. He isn’t trying to secretly build oil pipelines or put money into Haliburton.

Shaking, Quaking, and Freezing

by on August 31st, 2014

By Alan Caruba
Have you noticed how much earthquake and volcanic activity has been occurring lately?
There was a major earthquake in Napa, California on Sunday, August 24th as well as considerable volcanic activity from Iceland to Papua, New Guinea. August was also a month that set records for colder U.S. temperatures.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), there were some 1,097 “low max” temperature records broken in the U.S. between August 1 and August 23, meaning that the maximum temperature during that time period was the lowest it has ever been. NOAA reported that summer across much of the U.S. has been colder than normal.
Most of us, after decades of global warming predictions that became more and more absurd, rising sea levels drowning Manhattan and Miami, an upsurge in hurricanes, forest fires, and every other calamity, have concluded that none of these things have happened in the volume or intensity predicted. In the 70s we were told the Earth would get colder. In the 80’s and 90’s we were told it would get warmer.
A new book is advising us to prepare for a serious cold spell that is not only going to arrive in twenty to thirty years, but will likely stay around to become the next ice age. This time, though, the prediction is based on well-established climate cycles and the behavior of the Sun that was known as far back as Galileo’s day.
The new “normal” is colder weather and this is because the Sun’s sunspot activity has been in a cyclical decline since about 1998, producing the latest cooling cycle for the Earth.
In combination with the earthquakes and volcanic activity, says John L. Casey’s new book, “Dark Winter: How the Sun is Causing a 30-Year Cold Spell” ($24.95, Humanix Books, Boca Raton, FL) what we’re really looking at is a repeat of the Dalton Minimum, a solar sunspot minimum that occurred between 1793 and 1830. His earlier book, “Cold Sun” addressed this cyclical phenomenon.
Casey asks “Will we also experience volcanic activity that will add to the solar cooling?” and the answer, given the fifty active volcanoes around the world, is that “We should expect to deal with multiple geological disasters, including volcanoes and earthquakes, during the next solar hibernation.” We have in fact already entered that “hibernation.”
Casey is the president of the Space and Science Research Corporation. It specializes in independent research regarding the coming decades of cold weather. For thirty-five years Casey has been active in science and high tech industries. He has been a national space policy advisor to the White House and Congress, and a former space shuttle engineer, consultant to NASA headquarters.
Casey has formulated a “Bicentennial Cycle of 206 years correlated with near 100 percent accuracy to every major cold-temperature period of the past 1,200 years.” His Theory of “Relational Cycles of Solar Activity” accounts for its effects and those of other solar cycles.
He is not the first scientist to recognize the relationship of diminished sunspot activity and cooling cycles, but he is the first to have synthesized the earlier work of others who made comparable observations.
