Jihadists, Nancy Pelosi, Immigration

  • President Barack Obama has ordered a "surge" of federal air marshals to be in place by Feb.1 in what officials said was a "race against time," with other suicide bombers believed to be in the terrorist pipeline, although there is no specific imminent threat, federal officials told ABC News. [Seems President Obama has finally figured it out - we can only hope.]

  • As further proof that the mainstream media is in Obama's camp, there is this story from American Thinker: MS-NBC spent much of its Monday prime-time promoting the spurious contention that intelligence agencies may have deliberately allowed the attempted Christmas Day plane bombing to proceed in order to make Obama look bad.

    This contemptible idea was floated during the "Countdown" comedy hour when The Sportscaster reported "Breaking News" that White House sources believe the intelligence community's failure to stop the plot "might have been intentional and not accidental." Further, "the information was in some way deliberately withheld from some higher or broader authority to make someone look bad," leaving little doubt that the victim of this new, vast right-wing conspiracy was Obama.

    Earlier, fellow Obama sock-puppet Richard Wolffe reported that White House officials said the intelligence debacle was the result of "a failure by individuals who maybe had an alternative agenda."

  • Only 12 days after the panty bomber tried to blow up an airplane over Detroit, our government has decided to revoke his Visa! Isn't that just great?!

  • Michelle Malkin writes: Even absent the intelligence we had on this al-Qaida-trained operative before his fateful trip, Hillary Clinton’s State Department was required to know better than to issue a coveted entrance pass to a globe-trotting, Nigerian-born nomad. [Why is she not being given any responsibility?]

  • http://townhall.com/columnists/BenShapiro/2010/01/06/for_obama,_global_warming_trumps_national_security There is no doubt that the CIA should have done something more to prevent this attack. But, then again, President Obama has been keeping them busy. With global warming. Seriously.

  • According to the New York Times on Jan. 5, just a few days after Obama excoriated the CIA publicly, "The nation's top scientists and spies are collaborating on an effort to use the federal government's intelligence assets -- including spy satellites and other classified sensors -- to assess the hidden complexities of environmental change." This project, the Times reports, "has the strong backing of the director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In the last year, as part of the effort, the collaborators have scrutinized images of Arctic sea ice from reconnaissance satellites in an effort to distinguish things like summer melts from climate trends …"

    While missing a potentially catastrophic terror attack is problematic, it's good to know that we've got the inside dossier on the mating habits of polar bears.

  • 'Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel. -- Leon Uris, 'The Haj'
  • Snopes has confirmed the following: Obama and Janet Napolitano Appoint Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development

    Back in 2007, Alikhan, the son of Pakistani immigrants, was instrumental in removing the Muslim terror tracking plan in LA.

    The controversial Muslim 'Mapping' Plan of the Los Angeles Police Department is now "dead on arrival" according to Chief William Bratton.

    In 2007 the German publication Der Spiegel stated that Alikhan is a "devout Sunni"

    DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

    [It is easy to see just how reticent Barack Obama is to secure our country against those who wish us dead. The fox is guarding our hen house, and even CAIR is full of praise for these appointments.]

    Atlas Shrugs described Professor Agha Saeed of the American Muslim Task Force (AMT) who spoke of the aftermath of 9/11 and the struggle of the Muslim Community against the pervasive atmosphere of Islamophobia and hatred. It was a struggle against the tide - a very strong tide - to prevent Muslims in America from being marginalized and silenced.Professor Saeed ....issued five demands from Muslims to the Department of Justice. These demands included a cessation to the infiltration by spies of mosques and an end to the introduction of agents provocateur. In addition there was to be a cessation of attempts to undermine Muslim groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
    http://biggovernment.com/2010/01/05/exclusive-interview-military-blogger-michael-yon-detained-by-tsa-in-seattle-airport/#more-55762 Award winning war correspondent Michael Yon was detained and handcuffed at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport Yesterday by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) personnel.

    At this point the TSA officials escorted Yon to a designated screening area where they examined the contents of his bag. “Then they asked me how much money I make,” Yon said. Yon suggested to the TSA officials that the question was inappropriate and unrelated to transportation security. The award-winning blogger noted another TSA officer approached Yon: “he asked who do I work for.” ”I did not answer the question which clearly was upsetting to the TSA officers.”

    Yon was escorted to a room elsewhere in the airport where he said he remained silent during much of the questioning. According to Yon, “they handcuffed me for failing to cooperate. They said I was impeding their ability to do their job.”

    Yon continued, “They said I wasn’t under arrest, but I’m handcuffed. In any other country, that qualifies as an arrest.”

    Ultimately Port Authority police released Yon; according to Yon, the police were “completely professional.”

    In January of 2009, Yon’s article “Border Bullies” detailed a Homeland Security officer coercing a friend to give up her e-mail password so that he could read private email correspondences between her and Yon. [''You don't professionalize until you federalize'' - Tom Daschle]

    [Isn't it just great to see that the TSA is working so hard to protect us?]


    http://www.blogger.com/post-edit.g?blogID=2524324467828580210&postID=5201040691448013263 Hey student of history, [that would be Barack Obama] you claim Gitmo is a recruiting tool for Al-Qaeda. Where was Gitmo when they attacked the World Trade Centers in ‘93? Where was Gitmo when they attacked the two U.S. Embassies in Africa? Where was Gitmo when they attacked the USS Cole in ‘98. Where was Gitmo when they attacked the World Trade Centers in ‘01? The fact is that the detention facility was created in the wake of a declaration by Congress in September 2001 that “all necessary and appropriate force” should be used “against those nations, organizations, or persons” [emphasis added] responsible for the attacks of September 11 [That seems to prove that Gitmo is NOT the reason jihadists hate us.... Neither is poverty, as most jihadists are middle class or well-to-do. In point of fact, the recent murder of our 7 CIA agents in the middle east has been said by Al Quaeda to be a direct response to our killings of their civilians via US drones.]

    From NPR: The United States military base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has been holding prisoners from the invasion of Afghanistan and the war on terror since early 2002.
    As a blogger wrote: Do not … REPEAT … do not ask Barack Obama how moving the GTMO prisoners to a prison on domestic soil will somehow cause Al Qaeda to say, “Yo, we’re cool now.” In fact, if GTMO causes Al Qaeda to want to come to America to kill Americans, how much more so will a prison in Illinois incite them to come here and not only kill us but also free their brethren.


    US border officials were aware that an alleged extremist was on a Detroit-bound flight on Christmas Day and were ready to question him on landing, according to a report in the the Los Angeles Times.


    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, piqued with White House pressure to accept the Senate health reform bill, threw a rare rhetorical elbow Tuesday at President Barack Obama, questioning his commitment to his 2008 campaign promises.

    A leadership aide said it was no accident.

    Pelosi emerged from a meeting with her leadership team and committee chairs in the Capitol to face an aggressive throng of reporters who immediately hit her with C-SPAN’s request that she permit closed-door final talks on the bill to be televised.

    A reporter reminded the San Francisco Democrat that in 2008, then-candidate Obama opined that all such negotiations be open to C-SPAN cameras.

    There are a number of things he was for on the campaign trail,” quipped Pelosi, who has no intention of making the deliberations public.

    Senior House Democratic leadership aides say Pelosi was pointedly referring to Obama’s ’08 pledge not to raise taxes on the middle class, which she interprets to include a tax on so-called Cadillac health care plans that offer lavish benefit packages to many union members.

    [And now we learn that we Americans will get ONE hour of time watching their health care bill finagling. Isn't that terrific! They are being oh so open and transparant! Sounds like the perfect amount of time for an infomercial to me.]


    More global cooling headlines and stories:

    Midwest bracing for heavy
    snow, wind chills of -50

    Human Events reports:
    Dallas had its first “White Christmas” in more than 80 years and Oklahoma City broke a 95-year old record by getting 14 inches of snow -- the previous record was 2.5 inches for that day.

    From the Irish National Meteorological Service, Met Éireann, December 2009 was “the coldest December for 28 years over most of the country and the coldest of any month since February 1986 at a few stations.” It’s not just Europe and Asia that are cold: From Columbia, Missouri (January 4, 2010), “If Columbia doesn’t warm up to more than 20 degrees by Wednesday, this winter will make the list of worst cold snaps in Columbia history. The National Weather Service predicts temperatures will stay below 20 degrees through Saturday, which would be the ninth day of temperatures that low. A streak that long hasn’t happened since 1983.”
    http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/01/what_the_dems_know_universal_v.html In January, Chuck Schumer and Barney Frank will propose universal voter registration. What is universal voter registration? It means all of the state laws on elections will be overridden by a federal mandate. The feds will tell the states: 'take everyone on every list of welfare that you have, take everyone on every list of unemployed you have, take everyone on every list of property owners, take everyone on every list of driver's license holders and register them to vote regardless of whether they want to be ...'

    Fund anticipates that Congress will attempt to ram this legislation through, as with the health care bill. What a surprise! Fund covers the vote issue at greater length in his book, How the Obama Administration Threatens to Undermine Our Elections.

    From American Thinker blogpost: Clarice Feldman
    The blog And So It Goes in Shreveport notes that a petition to recall Senator Mary Landrieu has been accepted for filing by the Louisiana Secretary of State. Citizens have 180 days to file enough signatures to get this on a ballot:On Dec. 29, a recall petition was filed by Ruben Leblanc of New Iberia, for the recall of Mary Landrieu. Sec. of State Jay Darden stated that he WILL accept the filing."

    If the story reported by The Dead Pelican this weekend holds true, that she used her vote for Obamacare to bargain for national democratic support for her brother's mayoral campaign, I'd say more than a recall is in order. We're keeping our eyes on that story and will update accordingly.
