The killer in Sydney was another Lone Wolf, right? Except he was a known Islamist radical howling his hate at the top of his lungs. He repaid the Aussie hospitality that allowed him to live there as a refugee from Iran, by slaughtering innocents and raping. Yet still the media and politicians quibble and equivocate about his motivations, as if his own words and actions weren't enough. He flew the black flag of jihad people, that makes him an enemy of mankind. Wake up! Continue reading

I think it truly sucks to have been him. We owe him a lot. but I do not believe in a zero defects strategy, so a mistake requires a fix, not an abandonment of something we otherwise ought to be doing. Cordially, Jim

We can disavow and wail about the horrors of torture all we want and it will have zero effect on the people who actually do torture innocents. It is posturing for the people who like to feel morally superior. Cordially, Jim

The White House is releasing the Senate report on the CIA's Enhanced Interrogation Techniques often mistakenly referred to as torture. The reason for this is pretty hard to fathom although I'll take a stab starting with hair shirt liberal guilt and the ongoing embarrassment of our Apologist in Chief preening about as if he occcupies some moral high ground. The sad thing is that the program worked, we caught terrorists, we saved lives and now all of that has been thrown away and we are stabbing the CIA in the back for doing what we asked of them. Have a watch as I point out the folly of all of this. Continue reading

Like I said "Whistling past the graveyard" on this one. I am pretty sure I'd be OK but not really interested in the Grizzly Adams lifestyle/ I like my air conditioned and my showers warm, not to mention my food refrigerated. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well. Cordially, Jim

NSA Director ADM Mike Rogers said China could take out the US electrical grid. At a hearing of the House intelligence committee, Rogers said U.S. adversaries are performing electronic "reconnaissance" on a regular basis so that they can be in a position to disrupt the industrial control systems that run everything from chemical facilities to water treatment plants. "All of that leads me to believe it is only a matter of when, not if, we are going to see something dramatic," he said. If this doesn't give you a chill, you are not paying enough attention. Our country would start to deteriorate quickly if we lost power, and it's certainly not because we couldn't test each other. Water, transportation, sewage, food, etc. All of our major systems are networked and if you think they are better secured than any other online system, you are sadly mistaken. We need to do something about this, and sooner is better than doing it later in the dark. Continue reading

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has released a list of terrorist groups and the Muslim Brotherhood affiliate CAIR made the hit parade. While CAIR professed themselves “shocked” by the designation, the reality is that the group’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood cannot be legitimately disputed. CAIR is listed as an organization of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America’s Palestine Committee, in a 1994 meeting agenda submitted as evidence during the Holy Land Foundation Trial. The stated purpose of the Palestine Committee is to support the terrorist group Hamas, with quote “media, money, men and all that,” according to a 1992 internal memo also submitted at the HLF trial.

When Palestinian terrorists slaughter innocent civilians the correct thing is to condemn them, lay some concrete consequences on the Palestinian government and send condolences to our friend and ally the Israelis. President Obama felt the need to blame both sides and as usual he is wrong morally and strategically. Until the Palestinians renounce violence and their deranged belief they can destroy Israel, we should not give them a dime. Continue reading

President Obama is poised to ignore the voters and Congress and pass amnesty for 5 million illegal immigrants. This abuse of power is a danger to our Constitution, economy and national security. We must all work to stop it. Obama doesn't even agree with himself about whether it hurts or helps Americans. And let's dispense with the idea that Reagan and Bush did the same thing, in those cases Congress passed a law and they acted in harmony with the law. Continue reading

You aren't missing anything. The Kow Tow and Apology plan didn't work so well. This is actually a project I am working on the for the Center. We need a plan and then the will to implement it. Cordially, Jim

There are soon to be protests and almost certainly riots in Ferguson, MO when no charges are brought against the police officer who shot Mike Brown. The facts of the case do not seem to matter to the professional outrage mongers who are organizing the mayhem. They made their closed minds up months ago and if the officer is not thrown to the wolves, they will rampage. What might surprise you (or not) is that some of the folks are not just the racial grievance groups we are used to, but activists with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. They are using the (non-existent) civil rights aspect of this case to infiltrate the African-American community and bring them into the Islamist fold. Kyle Shideler of the Center for Security Policy exposes some of these connections. Continue reading

If you are playing at an event designed to thank veterans for their service and honor the military, and you play an antiwar ditty from the Vietnam era, you are doing it wrong. I could understand this of it was just the King of Constipation Bruce Springsteem, but Zac Brown and Dave Grohl were up there too for a rousing rendition of Fortunate Son. And who invites Bruce to something like this, he belongs at Obama/Code Pink rallies. The song, not to put too fine a point on it, is an anti-war screed, taking shots at "the red white and blue." It was a particularly terrible choice given that Fortunate Son is, moreover, an anti-draft song, and this concert was largely organized to honor those who volunteered to fight in Afghanistan and Iraq. Zac Brown has been a solid supporter of the military and his guitars are always covered with military unit stickers, but Zac this was a bad call. Playing onstage with Brucie, just ain't worth throwing away your well-deserved respect from all of us. There are a million good songs, and Fortunate Son is actually one of them, but time and place matter. Last night in front of a bumch of vets, troops and supporters was no time to show your dirty nasty hippie side. There also seems to be an attempt to say this isn't an anti-war, anti-troop song because it is complaining that the rich get out of war. Well then explain this line. Some folks are born made to wave the flag Ooh, they're red, white and blue And when the band plays "Hail to the Chief" Oh, they point the cannon at you, Lord Or this Yeah, some folks inherit star spangled eyes Ooh, they send you down to war, Lord And when you ask them, "How much should we give?" Oh, they only answer, more, more, more, oh It ain't me, it ain't me I ain't no military son Read more: Creedence Clearwater Revival - Fortunate Son Lyrics | MetroLyrics Continue reading

There is a deadline looming in the talks with Iran about their nuclear power weapons program. US and Iranian negotiators are preparing to enter the intense endgame in the Iran nuclear deal talks, amid mixed assessments of prospects for completing the deal by the self-imposed Nov. 24 deadline, just under a month away. “This is the time to finish the job,” lead US negotiator Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman told the Maxwell School of Public Affairs on Oct. 23 in rare public remarks about the sensitive Iran nuclear negotiations. There is almost zero chance that any deal struck will actually stop Iran from pursuing what it sees as its destiny to become a nuclear power, and I don't mean the kind that makes electricity. Our President is currently stuck with only the giant fail of ObamaCare as his legacy, so he really, really wants a deal that he can put on the shelf with his Nobel. That makes him a grave danger to give away the farm. The only upside is that the Iranians are just bullheaded enough to walk away without taking all his lunch money. Bottom line is in the high stakes poker game going on, we have a guy who doesn't even understand the game. Continue reading

REPOST now that the election is over, and wasn't that fun. Can't wait to vote again for Scott Walker in 2016. President Obama gave vastly different treatment to a couple of military folks who were in trouble. For SGT Bowe Bergdahl, he traded five Taliban terrorists and a pallet load of cash to our enemies. For SGT Andrew Tahmoressi (crickets chirping). I take a look at the two cases and a serious look at the horrendous deal he made to free Bergdahl in the Free Fire Zone. Continue reading

The Canadians were watching their "lone wolf" killer before he killed CPL Cirrillo. But nothing came of it, what is the problem? My compatriot at Center for Security Policy Kyle Shideler takes a look at why watching isn't enough. October 22nd’s terror attack by Michael (aka Abdullah) Zehaf-Bibeau brings into focus an important question for Western counterterrorism efforts, as reports are now indicating that Zehaf-Bibeau, reportedly a Muslim convert, or having recently become religious, had been under Canadian law enforcement scrutiny prior to the attack, over fears that he may head abroad to join the Islamic State. This exact same set of circumstances also existed for Martin Couture Rouleau, who killed one Canadian soldier, and wounded another, in a hit and run terror attack on October 21st. Nor are the Canadians the only ones who have had all the proper intelligence on suspects, and literally surveilled them all the up until the moment they began their deadly assault. A look at the past several years brings to mind multiple examples. The FBI was made aware of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev , and even interviewed him, well before he engaged in his jihad. British MI-5 had likewise been made aware of Michael Adebolajo, when he was arrested by Kenyan authorities allegedly for trying to join the jihad in Somalia. Adebolajo (together with a partner) would go on to engage in the beheading of British Army drummer Lee Rigby, in an attack very nearly copied by Rouleau. Continue reading
