What is twisting our antenna today,

November 21, 2011?

 

SNAFU, and that’s nothing to laugh about.  

Today we are again reminded of the threat of Islamic Sharia law and jihad and freedoms in the U.S.A.  Another whack job Muslim extremist was caught by the N.Y.P.D. for attempted terrorism.  The police response was to show a clip of a similar bomb in to demonstrate what could have happened had they not caught him.

27 year old Jose Pimentel, aka Muhammad Yusuf faced the judge last night. http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/alleged-lone-wolf-jose-pimentel-arrested-york-terror/story?id=14994845 

The FBI had him under surveillance, but thought he was too stupid to carry out an attack. “On a YouTube channel linked to him, Pimentel – who also goes by the name Muhammad Yusaf – he describes himself as a “Sunni Muslim brother” from the Dominican Republic living in Harlem, whose interests include “watching videos of YouTube, working out, reading and learning all aspects of the only true religion of all the prophets: Islam.””  From http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/nov/21/jose-pimentel-bomb-suspect-fbi?newsfeed=true

Instead of showing a car explosion- how about showing the World Trade Center being blown to smithereens?  Rephrase that- blown up in the name of Allah.??

Please make a point on what happens when you don’t stop Muslim terrorists before they can act.

In Egypt, the protesters are back in Tahrir Square in central Cairo, as well as in Alexandria and Suez.  The revolution is targeting the army of generals of the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF) who replaced Mubarak. Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, Mubarak’s long-time defence minister now heads the SCAF– at least for the time being.
 
The protesters want democracy and civilian rule.  But, by the looks on TV,  it is the army targeting the masses with scores injured by tear gas, rubber bullets and brutality by security forces. 
 
And, what does the Muslim Brotherhood have to say?  The official English-language Twitter page for Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, one of the most prominent Islamist organizations in the world…

#MB will not participate officially in protests, to undercut attempts to slip country into chaos. #MB supports RT to peaceful protest/sit-in
 
 
Not officially participating?  Here’s one more from Twitter…
 
Heavyweights needed to speak up against bloodshed: @ElBaradei @HamzawyAmr @amremousa @Ikhwanweb @SalafyNetwork @NaguibSawiris Where are you?
 
These are the same people that said: 
The Muslim Brotherhood has called for resignation of Dr. Ali Selmi and Dr. Essam Sharaf’s Government in its entirety, if they insist on the adoption of so-called constitutional principles or guidelines, setting criteria for the selection of the Constituent Assembly, considering such matters binding upon all people, and issuing the same in the form of a new constitutional declaration. http://www.ikhwanweb.com/iweb/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=32660:mb-selmi-initiatives-undemocratic-constitutionalize-military-rule-&catid=10396:mb-statements&Itemid=838
 

 
The Brotherhood home page can be found here- http://www.ikhwanweb.com/iweb/
 
According to the AP, http://mobile.boston.com/news/world/middleeast/articles/2011/11/21/police_protesters_clash_for_3rd_day_in_egypt?page=2 Egypt’s state television says the Cabinet has submitted its resignation to the ruling military council but that it will stay on to run the nation’s day-to-day affairs until a decision is made.  Elections are slated for November 28.  We’ll see about that.
 
The Muslim Brotherhoods recently established political arm is the Freedom and Justice Party (Arabic: حزب الحرية والعدالة‎ , Ḥizb al-ḥurriya wa al-’adala),  and though it touts itself as a religious movement, may win.  Read Foreign Policy, The Middle East Channel-
 
67 percent of Egyptians say that laws should strictly follow the Quran’s teachings, while another 27 percent say that they should in some way follow the values and principles of Islam, according to an April Pew poll….liberal claims (or hopes) that Salafis are well outside of the mainstream may be wishful thinking. In a December 2010 poll, 82 percent of Egyptians said they favored stoning adulterers, while 77 percent supported cutting off the hands of thieves.
 
Known as ‘Rajm’ in Arabic,  being stoned to death by rocks and having your hands cut off doesn’t sit well with Western ways of justice and democracy.  Then again, getting tear gassed and pepper sprayed at a peaceful protest whether in Oakland, California or in Egypt doesn’t seem right either.
 

Sharia Law?

Sharia Law?
 
“Today, these barbaric acts are passed as law and carried out in countries under Islamic governments, specifically the Islamic Republic of Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and in Afghanistan by the Taliban. For instance, see Article 83 of the Penal Code of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” via http://stopstonningnow.com/wpress/2451
 
Could a governing theocracy come to America?  It seems its brought a terrorist or two.  Will it bring freedom, social justice, and equality? 
 
NOT UNDER SHARIA LAW.
 
God Bless and have a good day, one day it will be your last.

The 9/11 Never Forget Coalition is holding a December 5th rally protesting the plan to bring the 9/11 terrorist conspirators to trial in New York City.

The Coalition formed to fight the decision of President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to try the 9/11 co-conspirators in New York City’s federal court, effectively giving war criminals the same rights as American citizens while endangering the safety of all New Yorkers.  Two weeks ago, we sent a letter signed by 300 family members of 9/11 victims to the President, Attorney General and Defense Secretary Robert Gates asking them to reverse course.  The letter has now been signed by over 120,000 Americans and is posted at http://www.keepamericasafe.com.

The trial of the “Gitmo detainees”, having already pled guilty does a bit more than endangering the safety of all New Yorkers.  What a farce to allow them to step one little pinky toe upon the soil they wish so to defile.  Can you imagine the protesters in the name of Allah and jihad perhaps blowing up the court room?

How much will the court proceedings cost?  Does freedom and justice have a price?    Where will they stay?  The Plaza?

On the battlefield, should a soldier stop and mirandize an enemy combatant?  What a precedent.

What about classified information?  What if the jury finds them not guilty, what then?  Are they free to see asylum in the nation they so abhor?  What country would welcome them home?  One of our allies?  Would NYC allow them to roam free in the home of the brave?

As the Chief and Commander of the U.S.A., President Obama needs to rethink the injustice upon America that these men have already admitted to committing.  The injustice will lie upon President Obama’s shoulders and the weight of the hearts of all Americans will weigh him down, rightfully so.

In adulthood and in childhood you pick a side and hope you win; you choose your favorite sports team and cheer for them.  The U.S. governement under Obama, is rooting for the whole world in negotiations and the U.S.  taxpayers is fighting a loosing battle.  

As an NRA badge carrying, conservative Republican, it would be a cold day in hell before I sent the Democrats one red cent of my money.  America can’t always get what it wants, but by supporting two sides of a battle, it puts us in the middle where we  are most likely get run over.

Billions of dollars has been poured into the Mideast and you know what?  Most of the citizens and governments love our money, but hate America.  The jihadists will stop at nothing and what does America do, send more money!

From Fox News http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/07/24/transfers-million-aid-palestinian-authority-clinton-says/ 

“U.S. Transfers $200 Million in Aid to Palestinian Authority, Clinton Says.

The United States has transferred $200 million in aid for the Palestinian people, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday. The money was part of the assistance package announced at an international donors conference in March. Clinton, who spoke after returning from a visit to India and Thailand, said the money had been transferred directly to the Palestinian Authority. She said that she had been assured that President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad “have put in place the foundations of a responsible, transparent, accountable government.” This had been verified, she said, by the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and internal reviews. 

Financing both sides of this battle, especially when our own economy lies in tatters is near traitorous. To think that either side, or even that America has a “responsible, transparent, accountable government” borders on being laughable, but it is not funny.  Clinton also said, ” the United States would continue to engage Israel and the Palestinians in peace talks and press for a two-state solution, and called on the rest of the world to help boost the Palestinian economy.”  Humph. How about someone sending a check to America?  Maybe paying back the U.S. Taxpayer for WWI and WWII. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/4757181.stm

Last I heard, The Palestinian Authority (Hamas) is classified by the United States as a terrorist organization.

I’m all for peace in an idealistic world.  But, the world is filled with leaders who to torturous things to its own citizens and hold the threat of nuclear war out like the golden carrot to get more U.S. Dollars.  Still we try to place nice in the world even though North Korea’s government-controlled KCNA news agency suggested that ‘she [sic Clinton] is by no means intelligent’. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1201630/Playground-scrap-Hilary-Clinton-says-North-Korea-friends-primary-schoolgirl.html Yet, we will continue to negotiate not only with NK but other states defined once, as members of the Axis of Evil. 

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said Saturday the country would strike Israel’s nuclear facilities if Tel Aviv attacked the Islamic state, Reuters reported state television as saying “If the Zionist Regime (Israel) attacks Iran, we will surely strike its nuclear facilities with our missile capabilities,” Mohammad Ali Jafari, Guards commander-in-chief, said. Jafari said Israel was entirely within the reach of Iran. “Our missile capability puts all of the Zionist regime (Israel) within Iran’s reach to attack,” Jafari said. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,534800,00.html 

Clinton said this week a nuclear Iran could be contained by a U.S. “defense umbrella,” setting off tremors in the Middle East. Since making the remark on a television chat show in Thailand, Clinton has backpedaled, saying she was only restating existing policy and not referring to any sort of formal guarantees of protection under an American “nuclear umbrella.”

Will we ballyhoo the doctrine of “preemption” in negotiations? Mr. President Obama- yet another test for you.  Perhaps both Clinton and Biden could shush for just a day.

How intelligent is our foreign policy when the chickens continue to try to cross the road from Israel, the fence stops them from laying eggs on the other side in Palestine- while Iran threatens to make a scrambled mess of the entire region?

The U.S. Constitution has apparently been suspended in parts of America in an effort to protect its borders from everything from illegal immigration to terrorists.  Rightful to protect its border, except that the border has been seemingly redefined to include a 100 mile wide strip that goes around the entire “external boundary” of the entire United States.

“The extraordinary authority that the U.S. government possesses at its borders is spilling into regular American streets, affecting large populations of its citizens. Nearly two-thirds of the entire population of the country now lives within 100 miles of the U.S. land and coastal borders, an area that has been designated by the government as a “Constitution Free Zone”.  http://www.naturalnews.com/024734.html  and posted similarly at  http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/10/22/163652/37/734/638977

Could all liberties are put aside if you are rightly or wrongly id’s as having done something wrong?  Would there will be no guarantee of The Bill of Rights protection, no referring to case law and no lawyers to argue on your behalf? 

The ACLU lays claim that “Border Patrol agents are not remaining confined to a border security purpose.”  http://www.aclu.org/privacy/37293res20081022.html and it’s blog http://blog.aclu.org/?s=constitution+free+zone says that “U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is allowed to exercise extraordinary authority that would not normally be permitted under the Constitution.

(ATS) traveler risk assessment program, identity and tracking systems such as electronic (RFID) passports, the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI),  Secure Border Initiative Network (SBINet) or “virtual border fence” and unmanned aerial vehicles (aka “drone aircraft”) all monitor movement.   

The Department of Homeland Security is in itself, necessary.  Agents of the FBI, CIA, NSA must cooperate to protect the homeland, but using the word ‘homeland’ outside of a historical discussion of Germany has allowed law enforcement authorities access to broad powers and is just a creepy reminder of Gestapo tactics.  To assume an abuse of power is fear mongering, but fair minded caution must be exercised.  The Patriot Act, Military Commissions Act, and FISA-Protect America Act were enacted post 9-11 for good reason and have been tweaked numerous times to keep America Safe with as little intrusion as possible.

It becomes paramount that we question how secure the technology is in foreign countries and in our own country.  http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article9930.shtml  The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America author James Bamford writes about how spying on American citizens has been outsourced to companies closely linked to Israel’s intelligence services. “With unrivaled access to sources and documents, Bamford details how the agency has conducted domestic surveillance without court approval, and he frames it in the context of the NSA’s ongoing hunt for information about today’s elusive enemies. http://www.amazon.com/Shadow-Factory-Ultra-Secret-Eavesdropping-America/dp/0385521324

The Department of Homeland Security “claims that data gathered for law enforcement purposes will be “in compliance with privacy and civil liberties laws and policies of the United States,” the GAO found that “by broadly sharing information with non-federal users, who are not bound by the Privacy Act, personal information could be at risk of being used in ways not specified when it was originally collected.” Considering that some 70% of U.S. intelligence assets are employees of private security and defense contractors, NAO is a civil liberties disaster waiting to happen.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=BUR20081109&articleId=10864

The far side would have us believe that we have a ruling oligarchy that professes an agenda of militarism, corporatism, and socialism that encroaches itself upon citizens at the expense of the general population with more domestic control and intimidation.  Maybe the far isn’t so far off? Obama has proposed a mandatory civilian force http://www.rightpundits.com/?p=2318 with equal funding to the military which is already on active duty on our soil http://www.armytimes.com/news/2008/09/army_homeland_090708w/, Charles Rangle has a Draft Bill just lying in wait http://www.talkleft.com/story/2006/11/19/152217/04  , “The Bailout” has the government owning banks and Obama’s policies in waiting have been compared to Marxism. http://louisproyect.wordpress.com/2008/10/01/are-bailouts-marxist/

For now, we will wait to see what decisions Obama makes to shield our country from danger and protect her citizens.  “Let’s be clear here and shed whatever illusions one may have about the outcome of last Tuesday’s election. Despite the overwhelming rejection of the Bush administration and their surrogates by the American people, the incoming Obama administration will pay lip-service to civil liberties and the rule of law. This however, will amount to no more than a better public relations campaign, image management and product roll-out. America rebranded.” wrote Tom Burghardt  http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=BUR20081109&articleId=10864  His blog can be found at http://antifascist-calling.blogspot.com/

For now though our Bill of Rights are safe.  In an all too plausible court case, The Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision narrowly “ruled to uphold the Bill of Rights, the very tenets upon which American society is based. “After carefully considering the relevance of the 10 inviolable rights that comprise the ideological foundation on which our nation is built, the court finds that these basic freedoms remain important for the time being, and should not be overturned,” read the majority opinion authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who cast the tie-breaking vote. “Until such time as it can be definitively proven that citizens no longer require the protections provided by the Bill of Rights, it shall remain the principal legal guidance for the United States of America.” The Supreme Court’s latest decision comes on the heels of last month’s 6-3 ruling to abolish the pursuit of happiness from the three inalienable rights guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence. http://www.theonion.com/content/news_briefs/supreme_court_upholds_bill?utm_source=onion_rss_daily   Kudos to Justice Anthony Kennedy for saving The Bill of Rights and shame, shame, shame on those Justices who sought not to protect the Bill of Rights and who did solemnly swear to uphold those rights. From Wiki-  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oath_of_office#Federal_judicial_oaths

For readers are not familiar with The Onion, the Supreme Court Ruling is a satire and did not occur.  No Court has had issue with the Constitution Free Zone, yet.  When standing behind, beside or in front of the ACLU, keep in mind it may not stand up to protect all of The Bill of Rights either, “ACLU doesn’t mean all of the original 10 amendments because its policy No. 47 says, “Except for lawful police and military purposes, the possession of weapons by individuals is not constitutionally protected,” thereby ignoring the Second Amendment.”  http://www.stoptheaclu.com/archives/2008/09/06/aclu-very-selective-in-upholding-bill-of-rights/

Defending our borders, The U.S. Constitution and our privacy laws is a balancing act that will require Obama’s political vision be clear and forthright through out his entire Presidency.   Good luck with that theory of  a President being forthright though. Obama himself has barred the public from seeing his birth certificate, college transcripts, medical background, etc., so I’d say Obama’s privacy has been protected pretty dang well here in America.
