… And Now , Brussels , Belgium [#terror attack]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,March 27th,2016

.. a couple of days ago , Brussels , Belgium joined the long list and the sad fraternity of cities and regions that have been struck by the cruelty and wanton barbarism of terrorism . These places did not choose to belong on THIS LIST > The bad guys did that . They are the ones that are dealing with the impact of the attacks ..

.. so the Belgians are going to have to strap it up , straighten up their faces , and move ahead with their own contribution to the War on Terrorism …

… More Exec Action [#Gitmo]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,November 13th,2015

.. what are the ObamaCraps thinking ?? …

.. Congress has passed a law . It is an appropriations rider , to be specific . it basically states that No federal funds may be spent to move any of the detainees from Guantanamo Bay navy Base Detention Center to the United States …

.. [h/t — WFB.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. and the ObamaCraps are actually thinking of using what His Lordship famously calls an ” Executive Action ” to override this , and thus to move the detainees to a stateside US prison . Are they nuts ..

.. the rider was passed in the early part of 2009 , when the Dems held a very , very strong majority in both Houses of Congress . The Dems , to be honest , do not want those damn scumbags anywhere in the US . The ObamaCraps could put those idiots in any US prison , so any state with Dems could be affected ..

.. so , what happens next ?? Good Question ! …

.. if Hamas panicks , then they are out in the open . If they do not , then they are right where Israel wants them . Israel will need added troops [about another 30k to 50k] to isolate the area , block off escape routes , and then press in for the kill …

… An Act of Cowardice [Brandeis University]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 17th,2014

.. for this year , like many schools , Brandeis University has been planning for its graduation . Well , after the stunt that they have pulled , this years ‘ graduation will not be normal ..

.. normally , a university or college awards honorary degrees to special people at their commencement ceremony . Well , that was the original plan for Brandeis University . Not now , though …

.. One of their honorees was to be the distinguished human rights activist , diplomat , and woman ‘ s rights supporter Ayaan Hirsi Ali . Ali , originally a Muslim and from Somalia , originally emigrated to the Netherlands . She was elected to several terms in the Dutch parliament , when her controversial stands led her to take flight , and emigrate to the United States , and become a Christian …

.. in came the brutal and demonic acts of the Council on American – Islamic Relations . They style themselves as a civil – rights organization , but nothing could be further than the truth . They are a terrorist organization . They were formed from the acts of several terrorist organizations , including that of Hamas , the chief terror wing in the Gaza Strip …

.. C.A.I.R. protested , and did so vehemently . Eventually , they threatened legal actions and boycotts . In time , Brandeis University caved into the pressure …

.. courtesy of the documentary film , the ” Honor Diaries , ” she was the executive producer and one of the subjects of the film . Brandeis should have known of her . Obviously , they did not . However , her activism , her human rights stands , and her humanity easily merit her the honor .

.. Brandeis should reverse its action , and reinstate the honorary degree …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. here is Dr. Ali ‘ s statement on Brandeis ‘ actions : …

Yesterday Brandeis University decided to withdraw an honorary degree they were to confer upon me next month during their Commencement exercises. I wish to dissociate myself from the university’s statement, which implies that I was in any way consulted about this decision. On the contrary, I was completely shocked when President Frederick Lawrence called me—just a few hours before issuing a public statement—to say that such a decision had been made.

When Brandeis approached me with the offer of an honorary degree, I accepted partly because of the institution’s distinguished history; it was founded in 1948, in the wake of World War II and the Holocaust, as a co-educational, nonsectarian university at a time when many American universities still imposed rigid admission quotas on Jewish students. I assumed that Brandeis intended to honor me for my work as a defender of the rights of women against abuses that are often religious in origin. For over a decade, I have spoken out against such practices as female genital mutilation, so-called “honor killings,” and applications of Sharia Law that justify such forms of domestic abuse as wife beating or child beating. Part of my work has been to question the role of Islam in legitimizing such abhorrent practices. So I was not surprised when my usual critics, notably the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), protested against my being honored in this way.

What did surprise me was the behavior of Brandeis. Having spent many months planning for me to speak to its students at Commencement, the university yesterday announced that it could not “overlook certain of my past statements,” which it had not previously been aware of. Yet my critics have long specialized in selective quotation – lines from interviews taken out of context – designed to misrepresent me and my work. It is scarcely credible that Brandeis did not know this when they initially offered me the degree.

What was initially intended as an honor has now devolved into a moment of shaming. Yet the slur on my reputation is not the worst aspect of this episode. More deplorable is that an institution set up on the basis of religious freedom should today so deeply betray its own founding principles. The “spirit of free expression” referred to in the Brandeis statement has been stifled here, as my critics have achieved their objective of preventing me from addressing the graduating Class of 2014. Neither Brandeis nor my critics knew or even inquired as to what I might say. They simply wanted me to be silenced. I regret that very much.

Not content with a public disavowal, Brandeis has invited me “to join us on campus in the future to engage in a dialogue about these important issues.” Sadly, in words and deeds, the university has already spoken its piece. I have no wish to “engage” in such one-sided dialogue. I can only wish the Class of 2014 the best of luck—and hope that they will go forth to be better advocates for free expression and free thought than their alma mater. I take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported me and my work on behalf of oppressed woman and girls everywhere.

.. now , another shooting at Fort Hood .

.. 3 dead , 13 or 14 wounded , including 5 or 6 critically …

.. thankfully or unfortunately , the cowardly murderer took his own life once he was cornered . At least he saves the taxpayers and the families a great deal of grief …

.. the first time , it was most definitely terrorism . Now , it is much too early to tell . It will take time to investigate . With the murderer Nidal Hasan , it became obvious very rapidly that it was terrorism …. and the ObamaCraps called it ” workplace violence ?? ” … no way …

.. the evidence will tell the story , folks . Just give the authorities time to investigate the situation ….

.. my prayers and best wishes are with the families of those who were killed and those who were injured …. pray for those folks who will take a very long time to recover …

much more than they have ever had to do so before . They have to plan for things that before that anyone would have thought possible . Well , they do , and god bless them .

.. I believe that such an attack could happen here in the United States , or in the U.K. , or in some other Western nation . To be honest , I expect it . The terrorists that will likely accomplish this act are likely to be home – grown . It could even be a chemical or biological attack . Just imagine (God forbid) the chaos that would ensue with either type of attack . What a nightmare . The damage to our economy would be enormous …

…Ouch , but it is true …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 12th,2012

… and on point ! …

… the attack on our consulate in Benghazi , Libya was a terrorist attack . It was from the first , and the Obama Administration knew it . Worse yet , they LIED about it …

… We are owed the god ‘  s honest truth about what it was , what happened , and for the ObamaCraps to cut out the unadulterated bull …

… The simplest way to put it : was put by a columnist . I am reposting his column (from National Review) because he is an  excellent wordsmith . He is not a particular favourite of mine . He is good , and I do read him on a regular basis , however …

People Died, Obama Lied

An anonymous State Department official told the Associated Press last Tuesday: “That was not our conclusion” — namely, that a notorious YouTube video that lampooned the Islamic prophet Mohammed unleashed deadly mayhem upon America’s consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

This denial should shock anyone who watched the news after U.S. ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were murdered on the eleventh anniversary of September 11. That anti-Islamic video’s culpability certainly was the “conclusion” among top administration officials, including President Obama. They fingered the video for eight days, even as evidence mounted that these Americans were slain in a commando-style operation that involved machine guns and mortar shells, not banners and placards.

As Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier and Bill O’Reilly each detailed on Wednesday, Team Obama energetically promoted this now-repudiated “conclusion.”

September 11: Despite anti-video demonstrations in Cairo, Benghazi is tranquil. According to diplomats, “everything is calm. There’s nothing unusual. There has been nothing unusual during the day at all outside. No protests all day.”

At 9:40 p.m. local time, however, gunfire and explosions rock the consulate’s front gate.

September 12: As these homicides become clear, President Obama says, “We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None.” Obama then skips his daily intelligence briefing and jets to a Las Vegas fundraiser.

September 13: “The United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video,” Secretary of State Clinton declares. “We absolutely reject its content and message.” Repeated efforts to distance the U.S. government from the video actually publicize it. Paradoxically, it grows increasingly toxic.

September 14: “We have no information to suggest that it was a pre-planned attack,” White House press secretary Jay Carney announces. “The unrest we’ve seen around the region has been in reaction to a video that Muslims, many Muslims find offensive.”

That day, as the murdered Americans’ remains reach Andrews Air Force Base, Clinton says: “We have seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with. It is hard for the American people to make sense of that because it is senseless.”

September 16: United Nations ambassador Susan Rice tells Fox News Sunday that “this was not a pre-planned, premeditated attack.” She calls it “a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo as a consequence of the video.”

September 18: “You had a video released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character, who has an extremely offensive video directed at Mohammed and Islam,” President Obama tells comedian David Letterman. Obama adds that “extremists and terrorists used this as an excuse to attack a variety of embassies including the consulate in Libya.”

September 19: Team Obama abruptly changes tune. National Counterterrorism director Matthew Olsen informs the Senate Homeland Security Committee, “I would say yes, they were killed in the course of the terrorist attack on our embassy.”

September 20: “It’s self-evident that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack,” Carney announces. Somehow, this self-evidence had eluded the public.

Why would Team Obama essentially accuse a video of these murders, even as Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Wood — leader of a 16-man, dedicated military unit withdrawn from Libya last August — called the hit “instantly recognizable” as terrorism?

During President Obama’s difficult campaign, that fantasy was far more palatable than this reality: A premeditated, well-executed al-Qaeda strike on a U.S. mission eradicated four Americans, even after they longed for the security assistance that might have prevented them from coming home in caskets.

Ambassador Stevens warned Washington that Libya “remains unpredictable, volatile, and violent.”

Eric Nordstrom, a former U.S. security officer in Libya, told the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee on Wednesday that State documented 230 security incidents in Libya between June 2011 and July 2012. Nordstrom consequently requested twelve more security personnel.

“‘You are asking for the sun, moon and the stars,’” Nordstrom says a State Department regional director complained. Nordstrom then describes his greatest frustration in this assignment.

“It is not the hardships,” Nordstrom says. “It is not the gunfire. It is not the threats. It is dealing and fighting against the people, programs, and personnel who are supposed to be supporting me.” As he told that regional director, “For me the Taliban is on the inside of the building.”

Nordstrom ultimately concluded that “we were not going to get resources until the aftermath of an incident. And the question that we would ask is again, ‘How thin does the ice need to get until someone falls through?’”

These inconvenient truths would have obviated Team Obama’s “bin Laden is dead, al-Qaeda is comatose” reelection theme. Thus, the same government that apparently leaks secrets to make the president look tough evidently oozed falsehoods to keep him from looking weak.

In short: People died, Obama lied.
