Last Week’s Conspiracy Theories are This Week’s Reality

It is now safe to say that if one cannot see the abject evil of the Obama administration as well as the endemic corruption and criminality in our federal government, it is only because they are refusing to look. Due to what some are calling a “perfect storm” of circumstances, three scandals have rocked Washington, but these are only the grossest symptoms of the systemic infection that has been festering there for decades.

tinfoilhat1Those such as myself who suspected on September 12, 2012 that the Obama administration’s narrative relative to the attack on the US embassy in Benghazi, Libya was a false one were mocked and ridiculed (as was I personally in 2008 upon claiming that a communist was in the running for the White House). We now know that not only was the narrative false, but that President Obama and his cabinet are probably guilty of criminal action surrounding their responses and subsequent coverup of the actual events in Benghazi that night.

On the heels of whistleblowers’ testimony before Congress last week, the monumentally egregious practices of the Internal Revenue Service pertaining to conservative nonprofit applicants, and the Department of Justice’s collection of communications records from reporters and editors at the Associated Press have emerged. These have given us the opportunity for an unvarnished glimpse into the machinations of the Obama administration – and into our possible future.

Sgt. Schultz goes to Washington

sgtschultz1So, say I’m a low-level worker at the Internal Revenue Service (I know – just bear with me for a minute), and I am directed to inordinately scrutinize or illegally target nonprofit groups with which I happen to be politically opposed, or to create materials to be used in that effort. What happens?

I’ll tell you what happens: I refuse to do it, job or no job, and I go to the press.

I can say this because I have left jobs due to moral conflicts, although I realize it may be difficult for some to criticize an individual who chooses their livelihood in such an instance.

On Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that he would recuse himself from an investigation into the Department of Justice having secretly obtained the phone records of Associated Press reporters and editors, ostensibly in an effort to discover who in the DOJ had previously leaked confidential information to the AP. Holder initially claimed that this involved an issue of national security. Both the stated purpose and the methods appear dubious on their face and have raised serious questions of legality.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said that the White House had no knowledge of the investigation.

Which is convenient, if not even remotely believable.

Benghazi and Boston: Maintaining the Momentum

When President Obama jokingly referred to himself as a former “Muslim socialist” at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on April 27, several publications later quoting him scrubbed the word “Muslim” from the text. Why? Did editors perceive something imprudent with respect to their agenda in advertising that tidbit? Would there have been something offensive in representing Obama’s utterance of Moosleem in those characteristic, dulcet tones?

It’s not like his affected accent would have translate into print…

All kidding aside: The House Oversight Committee hearings this week on the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya were extremely revealing on three levels. One, of course, was the information finally revealed as the whistleblowers were identified and Americans were able to hear their riveting accounts of the events on the ground that night.

benghazi3Two: Though it has been established that perhaps a majority of Republican lawmakers are treasonous, progressive whores, it appears that there are at least a few who are serious about preserving the republic and who grasp the gravity of the Obama administration’s crimes. This is not only gratifying, but certainly could be integral to extricating this obscene cabal.

Three is the absolute treason of the press. This may not be surprising to the reader, given their comportment in recent years, but their level of abject propaganda and obsequious toadying during the hearings was unparalleled. Few of the alphabet television networks touched on the hearings at all, and those that did relegated much of their coverage to hidden nooks and crannies on their websites.

The beginning of the end of Obama’s reign?

benghazi2

Earlier this week, Fox News Channel analyst Brit Hume asserted that for the investigation of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, “to become the scandal it surely deserves to be,” it will require relentless news coverage.

Hume is quite right, of course; however, there is another requisite for definitive results to develop with regard to Benghazi, and that is the willingness of Congress to see the process through to a just conclusion.

And what would be a just conclusion?

I suppose that depends on two things: One, what is revealed in the hearings, and two, whom one asks. I have always leaned in the direction of the administration having orchestrated the attack for reasons of its own – given his connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and legendary understanding of all things Islamic, it is possible that President Obama could even have arranged for the assault on the compound without the foreknowledge of his Cabinet.

A bold charge, to be sure, but I am operating with such questions as the unresolved Trinity United murders before me. Then there are the possibilities that the tragedy came about as the result of less grave criminal action or a series of irresponsible and craven decisions.

The burning question at present (and which may remain so for some time) is why efforts were not made to rescue the beleaguered staff at the facility and whether or not a stand-down order was given to military personnel in the area. If the latter becomes the case, then obviously we want to know who issued the order. Depending on the outcome, measures might be as severe as charges filed against Cabinet officials or the impeachment of Obama himself. While this president reasonably deserves to be occupying a cell in some federal penitentiary anyway, impeachment presents many troublesome aspects.

Comprehending the Incomprehensible


It is now apparent that not only did Boston Marathon bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev abuse the United States’ asylum system, but that untold others hailing from countries with large populations of America-haters (many of them Muslims) have probably been doing likewise. The United States’ compassion for seekers of asylum from oppressive regimes has long been of benefit to the politically oppressed around the world.

Now this, as well as other doorways of opportunity within our immigration and naturalization bureaucracy are routinely being exploited in order to gain access to Americans with the intention of doing us harm.

obama_islam1The granting of asylum is one of the manners by which the federal government is allowing terrorist cells to develop here, according to Iowa Rep. Steve King, a member of the House Judiciary Committee. This week, my colleague Aaron Klein reported that Ilyas Akhmadov, a high-ranking Chechen separatist leader accused of terrorism by Russia, was granted political asylum in the U.S. and lived for a period of time in – drum roll – Boston.

And what of the young Saudi national, Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi, who was injured in the Marathon bombing, and about whom so much controversy and government obfuscation ensued? His whereabouts remain unknown. Al-Harbi has known the Obamas since 2009, when he entered the US; White House visitor logs have confirmed this. Although there have been several rumors representing his background, none have been substantiated. There’s no doubt that the White House is attempting to make this question go the way of Fast and Furious and the Justice Department’s non-prosecution of certain ethnic minorities controversy.

The dawn of the ‘M-word’

Yes, it would be peachy if everyone could “just get along.” As the product of a mixed-race marriage who was raised to discern character rather than appearance or creed, I consider myself to be quite tolerant, despite recent accusations to the contrary. The reality of coexistence, however, remains the same as it has been since human beings lived in caves. It’s a coin toss as to whether that tribe on the other side of the river – no different than their neighbors on this side – will determine to coexist, or to attempt to dominate, enslave, or even kill the ones over here.

hiraba1Nations – unless they have lost their collective mind – always act in their own self-interest. I am not here to act as an apologist for American foreign policy; as a society directed by human beings, we have probably made as many mistakes in our foreign policy as we have in our domestic policy. Suffice it to say that the United States of America has done far more to contribute to the liberty and tranquility of other nations than we have to harm them, especially when compared to history and our contemporaries of equivalent power and influence. Indictments to the contrary are simply well-crafted propaganda I have personally resolved not to dignify with argument any longer.

Since the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, several contentious issues have concurrently come to the fore. Immigration, national security and the Second Amendment all came into play with regard to the bombing, manhunt and standoffs that ultimately ended with one bomber dead and one in custody. The Obama administration’s alleged transparency is also a factor, as they continue to obstruct justice and obfuscate pertaining to the narrative.

The Audacity of Narcissism

obama_narcissist2November 5, 2009 – Army psychiatrist Nidal Malik Hasan shouts “Allahu Akbar!” and opens fire at the Fort Hood army base in Texas. Thirteen are killed and twenty-nine injured (Later it is discovered that Hasan was mentored by Anwar al-Awlaki, the Yemeni-American al-Qaeda cleric who is subsequently killed by an American drone attack in 2011).

December 4, 2009 – Sixteen-year old Saudi national Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi visits the White House with a contingent of Saudis and Muslim Brotherhood operatives. They spend the night reveling with President Obama, smoking a hookah (despite a smoking ban in the White House) and urinating on national treasures. In 2013, Al-Harbi is quickly deported amidst controversy after the Boston Marathon bombing. His connection to the White House and Obama remains unknown.

Well, of course I can’t prove all of it, but I sure would like to see how the last sentence plays out – because there is undeniably a connection.

Over the course of this week, we have observed the Obama administration desperately attempting to cover up its enabling of Islamic terror networks within the US. Of this, there is no doubt. There is no need for me to go into the minutiae vis-à-vis their rhetorical gymnastics concerning the history of the Tsarnaev brothers and their Boston mosque, or the activities of Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi; these have been comprehensively documented via reliable sources as the evidence has come to light.

When I first saw the photographs of Al-Harbi in the hospital, I wondered why someone who had just narrowly escaped perishing in a bomb blast would display that Cheshire Cat grin for photographers.

‘My country, always wrong’

I find it amazing what manages to pass for “white” in America when the political left wants it to. During the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers last week, the press made it painfully evident that they desperately hoped the perpetrators would wind up being conservative tea-party Christian Republicans, but at least white.

muslim-protest“Please don’t be a Muslim” even graced the title of one Washington Post article – but we’ll address that brand of insanity in a bit.

When the suspects were finally identified as Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the press immediately pronounced them “white.” A collective “A-HA!” of vindication rose on the airwaves and in cyberspace, as though all of America had somehow been certain that “brown people did it.”

Although the brothers Tsarnaev are technically “Caucasian” in the sense that their home country, Chechnya, lies in the North Caucasus mountains of Russia, they aren’t what has been considered “white” in the Western world for centuries. Generally speaking, people who fall into that category are those descended from forebears in Northern and Western Europe, Scandinavia and the British Isles, inasmuch as Southern Europeans, some Eastern Europeans, Eurasians and even the Irish have historically suffered discrimination under the former in the West.

Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are Eurasian. Well, Tamerlan was Eurasian; his surviving brother Dzhokhar remains so.

USA Today blockbuster article exposes Boston area radical mosques

boston mosque1Via Act For America and USA Today

Amid all the typical politically correct news stories and ruminations by pundits about the Boston Marathon terrorist attack, USA Today ran an article this morning (highlights added) that exposes the radicalism prevalent in two Boston-area mosques and their ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

When you read the story—and we urge you to do so—pay particular attention to how mosque leaders react.

BOSTON — The mosque attended by the two brothers accused in the Boston Marathon double bombing has been associated with other terrorism suspects, has invited radical speakers to a sister mosque in Boston and is affiliated with a Muslim group that critics say nurses grievances that can lead to extremism.

Several people who attended the Islamic Society of Boston mosque in Cambridge, Mass., have been investigated for Islamic terrorism, including a conviction of the mosque’s first president, Abdulrahman Alamoudi, in connection with an assassination plot against a Saudi prince.

Its sister mosque in Boston, known as the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, has invited guests who have defended terrorism suspects. A former trustee appears in a series of videos in which he advocates treating gays as criminals, says husbands should sometimes beat their wives and calls on Allah (God) to kill Zionists and Jews, according to Americans for Peace and Tolerance, an interfaith group that has investigated the mosques.

The head of the group is among critics who say the two mosques teach a brand of Islamic thought that encourages grievances against the West, distrust of law enforcement and opposition to Western forms of government, dress and social values.

“We don’t know where these boys were radicalized, but this mosque has a curriculum that radicalizes people. Other people have been radicalized there,” said the head of the group, Charles Jacobs.
