It’s going to be a long hard WAR! By the Bear

George W. Bush said after the original 9-11 that the “War on Terrorism” may take decades to end.

Well, here we are in the second decade since 9-11, and if anything, the “War on Terrorism” is not nearly over, for terrorism is increasing all over the world; and yet we fail to see the enemy as to who he is.

Obama and his AG Eric Holder see the beheading of James Foley as a criminal action, so Eric the Red has sent the FBI to investigate the crime.

Is the FBI going to put yellow tape around Iraq saying this is a crime screen investigation? Are they going to arrest some 15,000 ISIS fighters and bring them back to New York and put them on trial in the American justice system? Or is this just another delay tactic for Obama to hide behind?

When you consider that Obama is weak sister incapable of making hard decisions the treat of ISIS becomes a bigger concern. ISIS has shown they mean business; will he do what is necessary to defend this country? I don’t we can rely on Obama to act first and do what is necessary.

Many in the so-called media have disregarded the possibility that this is a religious war because it doesn’t fit the narrative. We can’t possibly be at war with a radical ideology that says “convert to Islam or die?” Or can we? You can call it what you want, but it is a war between two different civilizations who are diametrically opposed to on another.

One is an advanced society that wishes to live in peace and harmony and the other society seeks to rule the world under their philosophy of Dhimmitude.

Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-muslim populations conquered through jihad. Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to islam.

Dhimmitude serves two purposes: it enriches the muslim masters AND serves to drive conversions to islam.

ISIS is but one branch of the al Qaeda tree that has many branches spread throughout the world. Even if we were to defeat ISIS in the near term, it doesn’t mean that the “War on Terrorism” is over. It is but the first step in a long WAR!

The Gatestone Institute, headed by former US ambassador John Bolton to the United Nations says:

Given the long history of Muslim Brotherhood activity in this country, its declared objective to “destroy the Western civilization from within,” and the extensive evidence of successful influence operations at the highest levels of the U.S. government, it is urgent that we recognize this clear and present danger that threatens not only our Republic but the values of Western civilization.

Since its inception in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood consistently has championed the cause of global jihad …..

Two Americas by Bob Lonsberry

The Democrats are right, there are two Americas.

The America that works, and the America that doesn’t. The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t.

It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the dos and the don’ts. Some people do their duty as Americans, to obey the law and support themselves and contribute to society, and others don’t.

That’s the divide in America.

It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility. It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office. It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country.

That’s not invective, that’s truth.

And it’s about time someone said it.

The politics of envy was on proud display last week as the president said he would pledge the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He notes that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just.

It was the rationale of thievery.

The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you.

Freedom OF Religion, Not Freedom FROM Religion By Alan Caruba

In God We Trust 2

The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution do not abandon religion, they embrace it. They do not, however, require that Americans believe in God, nor punish them for failing to do so.

Central to the liberties enshrined in these documents is the belief that they come from a higher power and America exists because of that belief. Without it there would have been no America. There are those among us who insist that, as a nation, we abandon faith in God and, if we do, America will cease to be a power for good in the world.

When Thomas Jefferson presented the Declaration to those who would pledge their lives and their sacred honor to achieve independence from England John Adams asked that it include the words “They are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” after the phrase “all men are created equal” and Benjamin Franklin agreed, suggesting that “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence” be added as well.” In their 2004 book, “Under God” by Toby Mac and Michael Tait, said “The changes demonstrated Congress’s strong reliance upon God—as delegates added the words “appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World for the rectitude of our intentions.”

Aware of the dangers inherent in a state religion, the First Amendment says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” followed by freedom of speech, the press, and the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievance.” There is no state religion in America, but reflecting the values that created it, its leaders have always acknowledged a greater power than government, the belief in God.

There would be no America if the Pilgrims who established Plymouth, Massachusetts had not left England in the quest for their right to worship as they wished, reflecting the Protestant Reformation. Another early settlement, Jamestown, was a business venture by investors to obtain wealth. Jamestown failed and Plymouth is with us today.

I am not a religious person per se, but I do believe in God. Always have and always will. I don’t insist that anyone else has to and neither do our founding documents. They do, however, acknowledge God and sought His protection to create a new nation; a republic with clearly stated protections for all its citizens.

There are, however, those who insist that any reference to God be removed from public documents and recognition. The leader among them is the Freedom From Religion Foundation and their most recent lawsuit is against the U.S. Treasury Department claiming they are discriminating against non-believers by including the phrase “In God We Trust” on the nation’s currency. Their claim is that the government is prohibited from endorsing religion over non-religion.

“In God We Trust” on U.S. coins was first approved by Congress during the Civil War in 1864. In 1956, Congress passed a resolution to recognize the words officially as the national motto, replacing the de facto phrase, “E Pluribus Unum” and it has appeared on U.S. currency since 1957.

The Foundation’s intention is to make any acknowledgement of God illegal by any public institution. If that is true, then we might was well tear up the Declaration and Constitution. Atheists are not content to not believe in God, they insist that everyone else not believe as well. That is a form of tyranny we must not permit to exist in America.

The Freedom from Religion Foundation specializes in lawsuits to advance what it calls the separation of church and state, but this principle is enshrined in the Constitution along with the right to freely exercise one’s faith. Its lawsuits are designed to destroy religion in America. In 2012 the Foundation had total contributions of $2,726,316. Nearly 90% was devoted to its attack on the freedom of religion.

In 2013, the Huffington Post reported that In the past six years the Foundation’s paid membership had increased 130 percent. It was estimated at “nearly 20,000” members. Its co-president, Laurie Gaylor, said that recent high-profile legal victories had increased the foundation’s popularity.

There is still strong support in Congress for the freedom of religion. In 1993 it passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act aimed at preventing laws that substantially burden a person’s free exercise of religion. It was signed into law by President Clinton. In 1997 the Supreme Court found that it was unconstitutional if applied to states, ruling that it was not a proper exercise of Congress’s enforcement power. It does, however, still apply to the federal government. In response, some states passed their own religious freedom restoration acts.

The Act was recently cited by the Supreme Court that ruled that closely held companies may be exempted from a government requirement to include contraceptives in employee health insurance coverage if it contravenes their belief in the sanctity of life.

There are millions more Americans who belong to various religious faiths and who believe that America must protect their right to exercise their faith. A relatively small Freedom From Religion Foundation will continue to use the courts to impose their atheistic views on any public institution. They must be resisted if America is to remain a citadel to the world as a place where people of faith can live together and exercise the tolerance that the atheists will not.

Eric Holder, Racial Profiler By Andrew C. McCarthy

The investigation of Darren Wilson is solely based on his race.

Why has a federal civil-rights murder investigation arisen out of the tumult in a St. Louis exurb? There is only one plausible reason: Eric Holder is guilty of racial profiling.

To be clear, we are not talking here about whether there was justification for the shooting of a young black man, 18-year-old Michael Brown, by a young white police officer, 28-year-old Darren Wilson. Was the shooting a legitimate exercise in self-defense by an officer under attack? Was it an overreaction for which Officer Wilson should suffer serious civil and criminal consequences? Such questions can only be answered by a thorough and fair investigation, the kind of due process owed to both the victim and the subject of the investigation — the kind that, as National Review’s editors point out, will be tough to mete out with political thumbs pressing on the scales.

Whatever the outcome, though, murder — including homicide caused by a policeman’s application of excessive force — is generally not a federal crime. It is a concern of state law. Only a few categories of murder are within the jurisdiction of federal investigators. In the main, they are far afield from Ferguson: the assassination of a U.S. government official, for instance, or a killing incidental to offenses that have interstate or international repercussions — racketeering, drug-trafficking, and terrorism.

“Murphy’s Law” By Jim Murphy

Greetings once again from Jingoistic West Texans Fed Up With Ferguson Media Coverage.

OBSERVATIONS:

First of all, I am not totally familiar with the Missouri State Laws. BUT I do know this:

Shoplifting is a form of larceny/theft of merchandise from a business. Larceny/theft is taking property without the permission of the owner of said property.
BUT, in the process of committing the crime of Shoplifting or Larceny/Theft, IF PHYSICAL FORCE IS USED THE CRIME COMMITTED THEN BECOMES A ROBBERY.
And in most jurisdictions, all ROBBERIES are FELONY CRIMES, regardless of the value of the property stolen.

In watching the incessant coverage of the shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson the ONLY two people who have correctly called what Michael Brown did in the convenience store prior to being shot were Charles Krauthammer and former L.A. Homicide Detective Mark Fuhrman. Everyone else is calling it a shoplifting or a theft. And of course the value of the item taken by Michael Brown was fairly small.

OH, I’m sorry, but I assumed that pretty well almost everyone has seen the video of Michael Brown ROBBING the store immediately prior to him being shot. Also this video gives us all some idea of the size of Michael Brown and his size has been described as; Six Feet Four Inches weighing anywhere from 250 to 300 pounds.
Ah, but if we listened to the very first reports we would think back to “Little Trayvon Martin” and the way the media first described him as a “Young Teen”. That is pretty much the way that the media tried to pass off this guy (Michael Brown).

I was not present when the shooting occurred and it now appears as if some other witnesses are popping up who back up the Officer’s account of the incident. And I also understand that today the Grand Jury is meeting to start hearing facts about this incident.

But I strongly imagine that between the federal government and the Governor of Missouri, who has already called for the prosecution of the Officer and pressure from special interest groups, that Officer Darren Wilson stands a fairly good chance of being indicted regardless of the evidence presented to them. Just as George Zimmerman was for all practical purposes convicted by the media and special interests, so I suspect will be the route travelled by Darren Wilson.

AND, remember that even though he was found NOT GUILTY by a jury, George Zimmerman’s life was pretty well ruined, not to mention the expense incurred by he and his family. In other words…. I believe that Political Correctness shall once again prevail. I sincerely hope I am wrong about this.
But keep this thought in your minds. Regardless of your age or physical condition, if you were being rushed by a 6’4″, 275 pound person, regardless of race, what lengths would you go to protect yourself? What manner of force would be justifiable? I have personally been in close to the same situation facing a really huge 280 pound individual and I not only drew my revolver, I also cocked the hammer back and told him to get his ass on the ground, which he did. When asked by his attorney at a hearing if I would have shot him had he attacked me, even though he was unarmed, I truthfully told him that I would have done so without hesitation.
At the time none of us were aware of the fact that this person was wanted for Rape and a Double Murder in the State of California.

The point I am trying to make is that until you are facing a situation like Officer Wilson, do not be too quick to judge his actions.
Also this week I heard a caller to one of the daytime talk shows call in and very knowledgably make the statement that Officer Wilson should be charged with Murder “JUST LIKE ANY CITIZEN WOULD BE, EVEN IF THE SHOOTING WAS JUSTIFIABLE”. This caller basically showed his ignorance of practically anything at all concerning a Justifiable Homicide. I have investigated any number of cases in which the person shot and many times shot and killed was the aggressor and in many of those cases after all the evidence was gathered and consulting with the District Attorney, we ALL determined that there was not enough evidence to charge the person who had done the shooting.

I can assure you that charging someone, when you feel that the evidence does not show any criminal intent or negligence is a bad way to conduct business.
AH, but let us not forget that none other than ERIC HOLDER is on his way to Ferguson. I just wonder at what point in time ANYONE other than Obama or one of his flunkies fosters a belief that ERIC HOLDER will do anything other than apply unnecessary pressure on the local District Attorney and the local government.

BUT, for a case that ALL of the media mutts tell us should not be “Tried In The Media”, they are doing a damn good job of accomplishing that very thing they are preaching against…. and I am including FOX News in that bunch also.

BOOKING:

I watched coverage of the booking and photographing of Texas Governor Rick Perry and saw a man who was acting like a sane human being and even smiling. Then I compared that with the arrest and booking videos of the Travis County District Attorney, Rosemary Lehmberg. Of course one of the big differences was that Governor Perry was SOBER when he was booked while Rosemary Lehmberg was way drunk. And of course Ms. Lehmberg decided that it was in her best interest to name drop and spit on booking personnel. BUT, other than that and Ms. Lehmberg displaying a look that would make a freight train take a dirt road, there was hardly any difference at all….. well that and the fact that Ms. Lehmberg pled guilty to DWI which is a crime and Governor Perry made the serious error of making the statement that he was going to veto a funding bill which was supported by Ms. Lehmberg. The funding was for the … now get ready for this…. The Public Integrity Unit. I have found in the past that a whole bunch of these specialized watchdog groups do more harm than good AND basically waste taxpayer money.

But apparently the Travis County District Attorney’s Office has been under the guidance of left wing nut cases for years.

MORE STUFF:

Back to Ferguson, MO. Bill O’Reilly and many other news folk, pretty early in the game, decided that the Ferguson Police Chief and the Department in general were, “In Over Their Heads” and that they “Did Not Have A Clue” as to how to handle the activities following the shooting of Michael Brown. WOW! I just wonder how many civil disturbances or mini-riots that O’Reilly and the other media-mutts have handles. AH. But not to worry, according to all of the media mutts, a real hero finally showed up on the scene. This was the title bestowed on Missouri State Police Captain Ron Johnson when he was put in charge of crowd control. I believe it was last Friday when ALL of the media reports were talking about how things had smoothed right out with the arrival of Captain Johnson who was black and also from Ferguson.

THEN, later that night, the bottom fell out and the crowd began throwing Molotov Cocktails and resorted to looting and also had a little gunplay in action. All of a sudden, the hero of the media was sort of like the Ferguson Police Chief in appearing that he was at a loss as to what to do insofar as controlling an UNRULY MOB. I am sure that the Ferguson Police Chief had not had to deal with this kind of problem in the past and being a relatively small department probably did not have enough manpower to handle it under any circumstances.

BUT, who in the HELL is Bill O’Reilly or any of the other professional news people to suddenly become experts in riot control. And it seems as if almost every night the brown stuff hits the fan when all of the outside influences seem to take over the mentality of the crowd.

SO, in spite of all of these media mutts harping on how they don’t believe that this case should be “Tried In The Media” they are nevertheless “TRYING IT IN THE MEDIA”.

BUT, don’t give it a second thought. I am sure that with the timely arrival of ERIC HOLDER that matters will rapidly clear up.
——————————
AND THEN….. there are the Washington Redskins who in their last pre-season game all came onto the field with their hands raised… allegedly to show SOLIDARITY with the family of Michael Brown. So, with that little display, the Washington Redskins have made the VARMINT LIST.

And of course a couple of TV NFL Analysts have decided that they WERE NOT GOING TO CALL THE REDSKINS BY THEIR TEAM NAME. And these two analysts were Phil Simms who I have always viewed as a bit of a jerk AND Tony Dungy whom I had pretty much liked up until he suddenly decided to become politically correct. Hmmm, wonder if he would change his mind and draft Michael Sams now?

Anyway, they are on the same level with me now as Bob Costas, who is pure varmint.
