Secrets Revealed

This takes about 2 minutes to read, it is worth every second. This is something every person in America must know!!

The single most prominent characteristic of contemporary America is that common sense has been abandoned to political correctness and “feelings.”

As President George W. Bush’s top speech writer, Marc Thiessen (The Kelly File on FOX) was provided unique access to the CIA program used in interrogating top Al Qaeda terrorists, including the mastermind of the 9/11 attack, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad (KSM).

Now, his riveting new book, Courting Disaster: How the CIA Kept America Safe (Regnery), has been published. Here is an excerpt from Courting Disaster:

41ijrOkVViL._AC_UL160_.jpg

“Just before dawn on March 1, 2003, two dozen heavily armed Pakistani tactical assault forces move in and surround a safe house in Rawalpindi. A few hours earlier they had received a text message from an informant inside the house. It read: “I am with KSM.”

Bursting in, they find the disheveled mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, in his bedroom. He is taken into custody. In the safe house, they find a treasure trove of computers, documents, cell phones and other valuable “pocket litter.”

Once in custody, KSM is defiant. He refuses to answer questions, informing his captors that he will tell them everything when he gets to America and sees his lawyer. But KSM is not taken to America to see a lawyer Instead he is taken to a secret CIA “black site” in an undisclosed location.

Upon arrival, KSM finds himself in the complete control of Americans. He does not know where he is, how long he will be there, or what his fate will be. Despite his circumstances, KSM still refuses to talk. He spews contempt at his interrogators, telling them Americans are weak, lack resilience and are unable to do what is necessary to prevent the terrorists from succeeding in their goals. He has trained to resist interrogation. When he is asked for information about future attacks, he tells his questioners scornfully: “Soon, you will know.”

It becomes clear he will not reveal the information using traditional interrogation techniques. So he undergoes a series of “enhanced interrogation techniques” approved for use only on the most high-value detainees. The techniques include water boarding. He begins telling his CIA de-briefers about active al Qaeda plots to launch attacks against the United States and other Western targets. He holds classes for CIA officials, using a chalkboard to draw a picture of al Qaeda’s operating structure, financing, communications, and logistics. He identifies al Qaeda travel routes and safe havens and helps intelligence officers make sense of documents and computer records seized in terrorist raids. He identifies voices in intercepted telephone calls, and helps officials understand the meaning of coded terrorist communications. He provides information that helps our intelligence community capture other high-ranking terrorists.

KSM’s questioning, and that of other captured terrorists, produces more than 6,000 intelligence reports, which are shared across the intelligence community, as well as with our allies across the world. In one of these reports, KSM describes in detail the revisions he made to his failed
1994-1995 plan known as the “Bojinka plot” to blow up a dozen airplanes carrying some 4,000 passengers over the Pacific Ocean. Years later, an observant CIA officer notices the activities of a cell being followed by British authorities appear to match KSM’s description of his plans for a Bojinka-style attack. In an operation that involves unprecedented intelligence cooperation between our countries, British officials proceed to unravel the plot.

On the night of Aug. 9, 2006, they launch a series of raids in a northeast London suburb that lead to the arrest of two dozen al Qaeda terrorist suspects. They find a USB thumb-drive in the pocket of one of the men with security details for Heathrow airport, and information on seven Trans-Atlantic flights that were scheduled to take off within hours of each other:

* United Airlines Flight 931 to San Francisco departing at 2:15 PM
* Air Canada Flight 849 to Toronto departing at 3:00 PM
* Air Canada Flight 865 to Montreal departing at 3:15 PM
* United Airlines Flight 959 to Chicago departing at 3:40 PM
* United Airlines Flight 925 to Washington departing at 4:20 PM
* American Airlines Flight 131 to New York departing at 4:35 PM
* American Airlines Flight 91 to Chicago departing at 4:50 PM

They seize bomb-making equipment and hydrogen peroxide to make liquid explosives. And they find the chilling martyrdom videos the suicide bombers had prepared.

Today, if you asked an average person on the street what they know about the 2006 airlines plot, most would not be able to tell you much. Few Americans are aware of the fact al Qaeda had planned to mark the fifth anniversary of 9/11 with an attack of similar scope and magnitude. And still fewer realize the terrorists’ true intentions in this plot were uncovered thanks to critical information obtained through the interrogation of the man who conceived it: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

This is only one of the many attacks stopped with the help of the CIA interrogation program established by the Bush Administration in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

In addition to helping break up these specific terrorist cells and plots, CIA questioning provided our intelligence community with an unparalleled body of information about al Qaeda.

Until the program was temporarily suspended in 2006, intelligence officials say, well over half of the information our government had about al Qaeda-how it operates, how it moves money, how it communicates, how it recruits operatives, how it picks targets, how it plans and carries out attacks-came from the interrogation of terrorists in CIA custody.

Former CIA Director George Tenet has declared: “I know this program has saved lives. I know we’ve disrupted plots. I know this program alone is worth more than what the FBI, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Agency put together have been able to tell us.”

Former CIA Director Mike Hayden has said: “The facts of the case are that the use of these techniques against these terrorists made us safer. It really did work.” Even Barack Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, Dennis Blair, has acknowledged: “High-value information came from interrogations in which those methods were used and provided a deeper understanding of the al Qaeda organization that was attacking this country.” Leon Panetta, Obama’s CIA Director, has said: “Important information was gathered from these detainees. It provided information that was acted upon.”

John Brennan, Obama’s Homeland Security Advisor, when asked in an interview if enhanced-interrogation techniques were necessary to keep America safe, replied: “Would the U. S. be handicapped if the CIA was not, in fact, able to carry out these types of detention and debriefing activities, I would say yes.”

On Jan. 22, 2009, President Obama issued Executive Order 13491, closing the CIA program and directing that, henceforth, all interrogations by U. S. personnel must follow the techniques contained in the Army Field Manual.

The morning of the announcement, Mike Hayden was still in his post as CIA Director. He called White House Counsel Greg Craig and told him bluntly: “You didn’t ask, but this is the CIA officially non-concurring.” The president went ahead anyway, overruling the objections of the agency.

A few months later, on April 16, 2009, President Obama ordered the release of four Justice Department memos that described in detail the techniques used to interrogate KSM and other high-value terrorists. This time, not just Hayden (who was now retired) but five CIA directors – including Obama’s own director, Leon Panetta objected. George Tenet called to urge against the memos’ release. So did Porter Goss. So did John Deutch. Hayden says: “You had CIA directors in a continuous unbroken stream to 1995 calling saying, ‘Don’t do this.'”

In addition to objections from the men who led the agency for a collective 14 years, the President also heard objections from the agency’s covert field operatives. A few weeks earlier, Panetta had arranged for the eight top officials of the Clandestine Service to meet with the President. It was highly unusual for these clandestine officers to visit the Oval Office, and they used the opportunity to warn the President that releasing the memos would put agency operatives at risk. The President reportedly listened respectfully, and then ignored their advice.

With these actions, Barack Obama arguably did more damage to America’s national security in his first 100 days of office than any President in American history.

No Mexico, You Belong To Spain

Reading news headlines is causing me to suffer anxiety attacks. The most recent one is a quote from someone named Jorge Ramos. I judge by his name he is hispanic. He is good at inciting hispanic gang members who have infiltrated the USA to riot and protest. His main claim is that the USA belongs to Mexico. I believe at one time a great part of North America did belong to a number of Indian tribes like Aztecs and Incas, but they lost the territory to the Spanish in 1521. during the next 289 years the Spaniards subjugated the Aztecs, Inca, and Mayan tribes with severe degrees of brutality to give them a language, culture, customs, and a new DNA.

Spanish_Colonization_of_Mexico.jpg

Eventually, a guy by the name of Napoleon decided he wanted to invade Spain and claim it for France. The Spanish didn’t want to be kicked out of their home digs and needed cash to fight them off. At that same point in history, the Mexicans were all shouting “we can’t stand it anymore” and decided to wage war for independence from Spain. The Spaniards who after putting up with these ungrateful natives for so many years were only too happy to give them their independence in year 1810 by pretending to lose a war of revolution.

8c302c394706b920d088a54932d61ac9.jpg

Since then the Mexicans have been struggling with establishing a government that can work for all their people. It works really great for anyone who is rich, but if you were born a poor man you are destined to remain poor. Mexico is a rich country and has a very good economy, and there is not reason in the world that they should ignore the millions of poor people they have by pretending they belong to the USA.

Diego-Rivera-Mexico-Big-details-600.jpg

About thirty-six years later the natives of Texas were unhappy with conditions and decided to push the Mexican army out of their territory. A brave bunch of these fighters made a grand stand at a place called the Alamo. Later, the USA chased their sorry asses out of Texas all the way to Mexico City. The USA could by right own all of Mexico down to their capital city. Our stupid leaders at the time didn’t want all of Mexico. Instead of just occupying the country and encouraging migration into those lands they opted to draw a line along the Rio Grande river, and what is now our infamously contested border fence. Just to show them what good sports we are, we retreated from Mexico city and gave them back all the land from Mexico City north to the Rio Grande. We paid them fifteen million dollars for the land we wanted from them. They accepted the payment. The USA was not obligated to pay them one red cent, and that is the end of the argument. All of this is spelled out in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

If Jorge and his gang want to claim something he should pick on Spain. They are the ones who made him a half-breed, and decimated their cherished land. I have a stinking feeling that if California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and Texas were empty of people, business, and movie stars the Mexicans would be happy to leave the territory to the gringos of the USA. It is not the land they want, it is the wealth of the people in these states that they claim is theirs. Without this wealth the land is still the same dry ass desert their Aztec, Mayan, and Inca ancestors abandoned centuries ago.

My advice to Jorge; work on your government to make things better for your people. The USA is not Mexico, and Mexico does not own the USA.

Here is a suggestion. Draw up a new border around Mexico City and the very rich states where all the US business operates to form a downsized Mexico, and give the USA everything else. My guess is that within fifty years your downsized Mexico will be engulfed by happy and prosperous American citizens who live free in an Exceptional Country.

 

“Many a little makes a mickle.”

Handshake.jpg

 

In Switzerland it has long been customary for students to shake the hands of their teachers at the beginning and end of the school day. It’s a sign of solidarity and mutual respect between teacher and pupil, one that is thought to encourage the right classroom atmosphere. Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga recently felt compelled to further explain that shaking hands was part of Swiss culture and daily life.

And the reason she felt compelled to speak out about the handshake is that two Muslim brothers, aged 14 and 15, who have lived in Switzerland for several years (and thus are familiar with its mores), in the town of Therwil, near Basel, refused to shake the hands of their teacher, a woman, because, they claimed, this would violate Muslim teachings that contact with the opposite sex is allowed only with family members.

At first the school authorities decided to avoid trouble, and initially granted the boys an exemption from having to shake the hand of any female teacher. But an uproar followed, as Mayor Reto Wolf explained to the BBC: “the community was unhappy with the decision taken by the school. In our culture and in our way of communication a handshake is normal and sends out respect for the other person, and this has to be brought home to the children in school.”

Therwil’s Educational Department reversed the school’s decision, explaining in a statement on May 25 that the school’s exemption was lifted because “the public interest with respect to equality between men and women and the integration of foreigners significantly outweighs the freedom of religion.” It added that a teacher has the right to demand a handshake. Furthermore, if the students refused to shake hands again “the sanctions called for by law will be applied,” which included a possible fine of up to 5,000 dollars.

This uproar in Switzerland, where many people were enraged at the original exemption granted to the Muslim boys, did not end after that exemption was itself overturned by the local Educational Department. The Swiss understood quite clearly that this was more than a little quarrel over handshakes; it was a fight over whether the Swiss would be masters in their own house, or whether they would be forced to yield, by the granting of special treatment, to the Islamic view of the proper relations between the sexes. It is one battle – small but to the Swiss significant – between overweening Muslim immigrants and the indigenous Swiss.

Naturally, once the exemption was withdrawn, all hell broke loose among Muslims in Switzerland. The Islamic Central Council of Switzerland, instead of yielding quietly to the Swiss decision to uphold the handshaking custom, criticized the ruling in hysterical terms, claiming that the enforcement of the handshaking is “totalitarian” (!) because its intent is to “forbid religious people from meeting their obligations to God.”

That, of course, was never the “intent” of the long-standing handshaking custom, which was a nearly-universal custom in Switzerland, and in schools had to do only with encouraging the right classroom atmosphere of mutual respect between instructor and pupil, of which the handshake was one aspect.

The Swiss formulation of the problem – weighing competing claims — will be familiar to Americans versed in Constitutional adjudication. In this case “the public interest with respect to equality” of the sexes and the “integration of foreigners” (who are expected to adopt Swiss ways, not force the Swiss to exempt them from some of those ways) were weighed against the “religious obligations to God” of Muslims, and the former interests found to outweigh the latter.

What this case shows is that even at the smallest and seemingly inconsequential level, Muslims are challenging the laws and customs of the Infidels among whom they have been allowed to settle [i.e., stealth jihad toward sharia dominance]. Each little victory, or defeat, will determine whether Muslims will truly integrate into a Western society or, instead, refashion that society to meet Muslim requirements.

The handshake has been upheld and, what’s more, a stiff fine now will be imposed on those who continue to refuse to shake hands with a female teacher. This is a heartening sign of non-surrender by the Swiss. But the challenges of the Muslims within Europe to the laws and customs of the indigenes have no logical end and will not stop.

And the greater the number of Muslims allowed to settle in Europe, the stronger and more frequent their challenges will be. They are attempting not to integrate, but rather to create, for now, a second, parallel society, and eventually, through sheer force of numbers from both migration and by outbreeding the Infidels, to fashion not a parallel society but one society — now dominated by Muslim sharia.

The Swiss handshaking dispute has received some, but not enough, press attention. Presumably, it’s deemed too inconsequential a matter to bother with. But the Swiss know better. And so should we.

There’s an old Scottish saying that in one variant reads: “Many a little makes a mickle.” That is, the accumulation of many little things leads to one big thing. That’s what’s happening in Europe today. This was one victory for the side of sanity. There will need to be a great many more.

They won’t shake hands but they will rape them in a heart beat.

Oscar Stolen

 

170227_gma_robach_16x9_992.jpg

I had the TV on without sound last night and I looked up just as the announcement was about to be made for the best picture. Two dinosaurs were in charge, Warren Beatty held the envelope and Faye Dunaway (Bonnie and Clyde) was at his shoulder. He opened the envelop and looked at it befuddled, then handed it to Dunaway. She looked right at the teleprompter without having even glanced at the card and announced La La Land. The crowd cheered, and actors were running to the stage. The usual mayhem followed. All seemed normal except for one thing, the real winner was Moonlight. A Producer on stage took the card from Beatty and showed it to the camera it clearly said in very large letters “Moonlight.” Even a very sight impaired person could have read it.

moonlight-wins-best-picture.jpg

What happened? I think Beatty and Dunaway were in cahoots in an effort to steal the best picture award. Except Beaty couldn’t bring himself to do it, so he handed the job off to Dunaway who declared the winner she wanted rather than to read the card.

If I were the the true winners from Moonlight, I’d be filing a huge lawsuit today to sue Dunaway and Beatty for a trillion dollars. They succeeded in stealing a million dollar moment from the people who were rightly selected as the best. It is interesting to hear all the lame excuses the Oscar company is spinning about how it happened. Each of them is a lie.

Here they are heralding the best of the best of their industry, and it turns into a fake news event, that’s Hollywood.

I could be wrong on this. Knowing the morality of Hollywood it could be that La La Land was the real winner, and the Producer stole it from them by slipping a false Moonlight card into Beatty’s hand.

Simple Solutions

This simple analogy has been around for awhile, but I like it because it is so illustrative of the differences between people who believe big government is the answer to every problem versus the people who believe in small government big liberty.

The governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the governor’s dog, then bites the governor.

main-qimg-253cb719a926b08bac854889c38a8e2f-c.jpeg

The governor starts to intervene, but then reflects on the movie “Bambi” and then he realizes that he should stop because the coyote is only doing what is natural.
He calls animal control. Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the state $200 for testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.

He then calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the state $200 testing it for diseases.

The governor goes to hospital spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.

The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish and Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is now free of dangerous animals.

The governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a “coyote awareness program” for residents of that area.

The state legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.

The governor’s security agent is fired for not stopping the attack. The state spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional special training re: the nature
of coyotes. PETA protests the coyote’s relocation and files a $5 million suit against the state.

Meanwhile in Texas…

fast_draw_by_animaker131-d4o594l.jpg

The governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks his dog.

The governor shoots the coyote with his state-issued pistol and keeps jogging.

The governor has spent $.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge. The buzzards eat the dead coyote.

That is the difference between a Red and a Blue state, explains why California is broke and Texas is not, and speaks to why we have Trump and not Hillary.

Wasted Dollars

Forgive me if I rant a bit today. One of my pet peeves is giving African countries foreign aid. Before you go off on me let me just say that I contribute monthly to an organization in Africa called Upendo Village. Click on the link and you will see how foreign aid is administered by humans who are concerned about people in need, and not feeding their own egos. When I see the pictures of the starving kids with flies swarming about their heads I get choked up as any normal human does. It is when I read story after story about African dictators like Idi Amin, and now this guy Zuma that I get furious.

What in the hell does a guy from the obscure country of South Africa need a jumbo jet to haul his sorry ass non-stop from Pretoria to Moscow? I guess we call that the privilege of rank. Or another way to put it is that elections have consequences.

Thankfully, the people of South Africa are finally on to this guy, and they are in an uproar about his plan to spend so much on a new plane. There is rumor that he will not be allowed to spend the money.

Look at the features of this plane. It is a bargain at the price of four hundred million dollars. After all, President Trump just negotiated with Boeing to reduce the cost of the new Air Force One planes by a billion dollars each. I love Boeing. I think they make the best product in the world. I know because I helped them do it. I have climbed around inside airframes during assembly looking for opportunities to design our product better, to solve their problems and to cut their costs. I am sad that I don’t own any Boeing stock. Their stockholders are crying all the way to the bank with the reduced dividends inflicted by Trump’s negotiation to cut the cost.

If you look closely at Zuma’s plane you will notice it is without windows, maybe that is why his plane costs so much less than an Air Force One model. (Or maybe the photo represents fake news and is a picture of a freighter).

President Zuma, is the current leader of South Africa. He has purchased the most expensive aircraft in the world for his own personal use and those of his hirelings and underlings.

BOEING 747-8 for President Jacob Zuma

Welcome aboard the custom-built plane that makes AirForce One look like
The Wright Brothers’ first effort.
These extraordinary images show an enormous jumbo jet that has been
converted into a luxury home for ZUMA

Complete with bedrooms, multiple lounges and an on board restaurant.image003.jpg

The custom-built Boeing 747 is believed to have cost South African taxpayers

$400 million. Making it one of the most expensive purchases of all time.image005

The jumbo jet would normally carry up to 600 passengers –but this version
was built for just one insane man, although he will be able to fit dozens of guests.image006

The level of luxury is out of this world.image007.jpg

The plane wouldn’t look out of place on Cribs.image008

Of course cable television and Internet are among the perks.image009.jpg

No need to fight for sofa space either, just the 14 TVs dotted about the vessel.image010.jpg

More sleeping space is provided in the “aeroloft” on the top deck of the vessel,
with eight double beds for passengers who prefer to get some shut-eye on flights.

Does the United States of America provide aid to South Africa?

Yup- over $571,000,000.
Just enough to pay for this toy, with a little change leftover. Isn’t it heartwarming to see how our “Foreign Aid” is benefiting the underprivileged of other countries.

WHAT A WASTE OF OUR TAX $$$

Assimilation???

This video is somewhat alarming, but not unusual for new immigrants coming into the country. I live in Chicago and over the past seventy years I have seen neighborhoods similar to this one in Dearborn with some exceptions. The signage was in Polish, Italian, German, and most recently Mexican. People who come into our country need to live near other people of their own nationality. Think about it, if you were suddenly dropped into an area of Iraq and had to learn the language, read the strange alphabet, assimilate into their culture how would you like it. Most likely, you would want to live in there American village with all the other Americans. Do you think the Iraqi’s would welcome you with open arms? Most likely, they would be hollering and screaming at you to get the hell out. Also not an easy thing to take. Assimilation takes time, learning a new language takes time, learning your way around the block takes time, finding food you can eat all takes an effort. None of it is easy.

What seems to be different with the Muslim immigrant is an Imam preaching not to assimilate. All of the kids I went to school with were pushed by their parents to learn the language, and to learn in school. My brother learned to speak English in grammar school. My sister and I learned from him, my parents learned from us, and from English classes for immigrants. There wasn’t a single nationality that harbored a hatred for America. Every Mexican I know is a friend. I love them as a people. They love America, they learn the language, they work hard, and they want to be your friend.

I would love to be alive a hundred years from now to see just how this new world works out.
