While the Obama administration celebrates the death of Osama Bin Laden and our military forces are poking around in caves all over Afghanistan looking for members of al-Qaeda, a far more dangerous threat is growing right in our own backyard. Hezbollah has established bases all over Mexico, Central America and South America. Hezbollah is now heavily involved in the drug trade and in trafficking illegal aliens. But do we hear about any of this in the news? No, instead our government and our media are obsessed with al-Qaeda. This is a fundamental mistake. Hezbollah is far more organized and far more dangerous.
One local television news program recently interviewed a former U.S. intelligence agent who has spent many years tracking Hezbollah activities in Mexico. The following are some quotes from that interview about Hezbollah....
*"They are recognized by many experts as the 'A' team of Muslim terrorist organizations."
*"We are looking at 15 or 20 years that Hezbollah has been setting up shop in Mexico."
*"they are the equals of Russians, Chinese or Cubans"
*"They're focusing on developing … infiltrating communities within North America."
Right now they are making a ton of money from selling drugs and trafficking illegal aliens, and they (Read More....)
If you want to get on an airplane in America today, you either have to allow TSA security officials to gawk at your exposed body using the new full body scanners that literally show "everything", or you must submit to the new "enhanced pat-downs". These pat-downs are so intrusive that many of those who have experienced them are using the term "sexual assault". The truth is that TSA officials have been instructed to start using the fronts of their hands to feel the outlines of male and female genitalia during these pat-downs. Not only that, but instead of going over the clothing, in many instances it is being reported that TSA officials are actually reaching down the pants and up the skirts of air travelers. Some TSA officials are doing this hundreds of times a day, and they do not put on clean gloves each time they perform an examination.
This is what America has sunk to. Today, in the "land of the free and the home of the brave", Americans are groped like farm animals by tyrannical thugs who get to do pretty much whatever they want with us. Things have gotten so bizarre that now even a columnist for Forbes magazine is calling for the TSA to be abolished.
The following are 7 TSA horror stories that are almost too shocking to believe. But all of them are actually (Read More....)
The following is a piece entitled "I'm 63 and I'm Tired" by Robert A. Hall that has been floating around the Internet. It was recently forwarded to us in an email, and we thought that it expressed the emotions that so many Americans are feeling right now that we should post it here.
If you are touched by Mr. Hall's letter, please send it out to as many of your friends and family as you can....
I'm 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I've worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven't called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there's no retirement in sight, and I'm tired. Very tired.
I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.
I'm tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to "keep people in their homes." Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I'm willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my (Read More....)
For the most part, Barack Obama has done a horrible job when it comes to keeping his promises. But when it comes to nuclear disarmament, it looks like he intends to be a man of his word. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama openly set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. At the time a lot of people did not take him seriously, because after all, who in their right mind would suggest that the U.S. should give up having nuclear weapons?
Well, apparently Obama was quite serious.
Senior administration officials are now saying that Barack Obama intends to permanently reduce America’s nuclear arsenal by "thousands" of weapons.
But shouldn't you wait until you negotiate with the other side before you declare that you intend to give up a large percentage of your weapons?
Well, apparently that is not the way things work in Obama World.
In fact, Obama's obsession with getting rid of nuclear weapons is creating quite a bit of friction between him and the boys down at the Pentagon.
On Monday, Obama met with U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates to discuss the "Nuclear Posture Review" which was supposed to be published in December but which was delayed because Obama did not consider it radical (Read More....)
A letter to Barack Obama from a 95 year old World War 2 veteran is causing quite a stir all over the Internet. The name of the retired U.S. navy vet is Harold Estes, and KITV has confirmed that he did indeed write the letter. Apparently someone in Florida sent it to Congress.org and ultimately it ended up getting out and spreading all over the Internet. Estes reports that he has received about 1,000 calls about the letter and that the vast majority of them have been overwhelmingly supportive.
If you don't think that your circle of friends has seen this letter yet, please send it out to them. What this 95 year old World War 2 veteran wrote in his letter to Barack Obama is absolutely amazing. You have to admit that his mind is still quite sharp after all of these years. The following is the text of the letter that 95 year old Harold Estes wrote to Barack Obama....
Dear President Obama,
My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don't believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.
I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly (Read More....)
"They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security."
It is now official. A majority of Americans are willing to give up liberty in order to be safer from terrorism. A stunning new McClatchy-Ipsos poll has found that 51 percent of Americans agree with this statement: "it is necessary to give up some civil liberties in order to make the country safe from terrorism."
Only 36 percent of those polled agreed with this statement: "some of the government's proposals will go too far in restricting the public's civil liberties."
So are Americans really this stupid?
Have they really been brainwashed into willingly giving up their essential liberties just so they can feel a little safer?
Maybe they have.
After all, a new USA TODAY/Gallup poll says that 78 percent of Americans approve of the new full body scanners that the U.S. government wants to install in all U.S. airports.
So almost 4 out of 5 Americans are perfectly fine (Read More....)
In a previous post we detailed how Barack Obama wants to reduce the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal to just a few hundred nuclear warheads. Now it has come out that Barack Obama recently shifted the authority for approving sales of missile and space technology to China from the White House to the Commerce Department. There has been very little fanfare regarding this move, but critics are claiming that it could make it much, much easier for China to acquire advanced missile technology.
Of course officials at the Commerce Department are claiming that the move will not cause controls to be loosened regarding the export of missile and space technology to China, but we all know that is a joke.
After all, what does the Commerce Department know about national security anyway?
Not a whole lot.
But unfortunately, the problem is not just Obama.
The whole national security regime in Washington seems oblivious to the reality that Islamic terrorists are not the number one national security threat that we face.
Rather, it is Russia and China.
But instead of embracing that reality, the U.S. national security establishment is pretending that they are our newest best friends.
For example, China's second-ranking military (Read More....)
