TSA failure: Hey buddy, you want to go to Yemen?

Two Men Of Yemeni Decent Board Flight From Detroit To Amsterdam With "Mock" Explosives In Their Luggage On What Appears To Be A Successful "dry run" Of A Terror Attack

Two men, Ahmed Mohamed Nasser al Soofi and Hezem al Murisi, one a Yemeni living in Detroit and one a Yemeni in the U.S. on an expired visa, were allowed to board a plane in Detroit headed for Amsterdam, even after one had been found to have mock bombs, large knives and box cutters in his stowed baggage...

NBC Nightly News, the Brian Williams softball, the Obama non-answer and blame on the New Media

Brian Williams on an NBC Nightly News interview with President Obama "asks" the question:

"...you're an American-born Christian...significant numbers of Americans in polls, upwards of a fifth of respondents are claiming you are neither.”

The question: “This has to be troubling to you. This is, of course, all-new territory for an American President.”

Now as mainstream media questions go...

Astounding and alarming similarity of world reaction to Hitler and Islamic fundamentalism (Video)

Does The World Have Its Collective Head Up Its Collective A**

Pardon the racy language, but as stated before the world is in total denial as to the risks and threats facing it from Islamic fundamentalism. The world today is acting in much the same way that Europe acted when it appeased Hitler, hoping that a madman would be satisfied with a bone being thrown its way, and more importantly depending on the fact that his word could be relied upon and trusted.

Today world leaders led by the United States and President Obama would like to negotiate with Iran. Negotiate with North Korea. Try to coerce Israel to negotiate with the Palestinians. Negotiate, negotiate and then negotiate some more. The problem...

The don't ask, don't tell White House (Cartoon)

For A President, So Much Remains Unknown

In this day and age where there is absolutely nothing that the mainstream media will not find out about a candidate, if they want to, so much remains unknown about this President. It is time to "man up" and disclose it all.

The debate over Obama and religion: Christmas 2009 is just more fuel for the fire

On August 21st in the article above, I had used an example of a previous Obama event that is helping to contribute to the nations uncertainty as to the true religion of the President. I had discussed a speech he had given at Georgetown University, and the White House request for the covering up of a monogram representing the name of Jesus.

Why Does His Religion Matter?

Now whether Obama is Christian or Muslim...

Forget the fact that sanctions had never worked on this regime in the past, this time was going to be different. Needless to say...

(Home)land security, Baby Boomers, retirement and the economy - National Homeland Security | Examiner.com

There Is More To Homeland Security Than Just Border Protection

As more and more Baby Boomers, those born between 1946 and 1964, move closer to the age where the idea of retirement begins to pop up, many question whether this concept will actually become a reality.

With an economy that is being compared to the Great Depression, college tuitions and the potential for unemployment with low prospects for new employment approaching past compensation, Boomers are somewhat less than optimistic about obtaining the Ozzie and Harriet type of golden years.

For Islamic fundamentalists, what better recruiting tool than the debate over the Ground Zero Mosque

How Is The Debate Over Cordoba House Playing Around The World?

It may very well be that Imam Rauf is well prepared to let this debate play itself out for as long as possible, and at the end make a grandiose show out of agreeing to move the Cordoba House to a location that is somewhat less incendiary.

In the meantime, the pictures of Americans protesting the construction is pure fodder for those outlets around the world who would like to turn this debate into one of the United States shunning the Muslim faith, rather than that of a protest over a poorly chosen location.

For those who may have a propensity to move towards a more radical position in the first place...

Why have we not heard from Imam Rauf of the Ground Zero mosque?

One reason is that both President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg are doing the talking for him. Why should he step up and be forced to answer, or more likely dodge, questions regarding his support for Hamas, when he is being provided cover by the other two?

Why can't we be this smart?

Ground Zero mosque: If only common people were as smart as the liberal elite they would understand

Wouldn't You Know That The Ground Zero Mosque Is Not A Mosque at All?


Are Liberals A Terrorists Best Friend?

The Ground Zero or Cordoba House mosque is not a mosque at all. This clarification comes from U.S. News and World Report opinion editor Robert Schlesinger in a piece entitled "The Ground Zero Mosque Is Not A Mosque (or at Ground Zero)". In it he writes:

"Despite what you might have heard, a 13-story mosque is not going to be built at ground zero in lower Manhattan. For that matter, a 13-story mosque is not going to be built within a few blocks of ground zero. Rather a 13-story building is going up which will contain, among other things, a mosque.

This might seem like an academic distinction, but in the heated debate surrounding Park51, or as the building is known more commonly, the "ground zero mosque," it really is an important one...

Iran Thumbs Its Nose At The U.N. Sanctions and President Obama

Ground Zero Mosque Is Okay According To The President, But Then Again A Nuclear Armed Iran Seems To Be Fine As Well.

Cordoba House mosque and Obama flim-flam

President Obama To America: Hear What I Want You To Think That I Meant, Not What I Actually Said

So goes the theory of President Obama who Friday night, at a dinner in the White House celebrating Ramadan, made very clear his thoughts on a mosque being built on the site adjacent to Ground Zero. In the article "Obama "forcefully" supports mosque at Ground Zero. Surprised?", President Obama said:...

It Used To Be That Working For The Government Was Steady Work, Although No One Was Getting Rich. To Get Rich You Needed To Work In The Private Sector Or Be A Business Owner.

That was then, and this is now. With private sector companies scared to death. With private sector companies scared to death about the future, the hiring of new employees and jobs creation seems to be a thing of the past. On the other hand, the Obama administration has made a sport out of the expansion of government. As a result, what we have is the growing an already bloated federal beaurocracy...

Ground Zero Mosque To Help "bridge the great divide" Between Muslims and Non-Muslims

So says Imam Rauf, head of the Cordoba Institute and in charge of the project of developing this mosque steps from the worst terrorist act ever brought on U.S. soil. The Imam goes on to say that "We are Americans, we are Muslim Americans. Many of us were born in the United States. We have no higher aspirations than to bring up our children in peace and harmony in this country."

One may question the saneness of building this mosque where Islamic terrorists brought down the World Trade Center...

Military cuts and a Spanish vacation fit for a queen

Or Is That First Lady?

Joint Forces Command In Virginia To Be Eliminated

Defense Secretary Gates has made the decision to eliminated The Joint Forces Command (JFCOM) in Norfolk, Virginia, based on the analysis that the jobs performed there could be handled more efficiently within some other part of the Pentagon. While this will potentially cost thousands of jobs, if this closure does not in any way compromise our national security then any reduction of government spending is a good thing.

In addition to this and future cutting of unnecessary military bureaucracy, actual weapons systems deemed no longer useful will also be cut.

Given the bloating of government spending coupled with a recession, the likes of which has not seen for decades, any government cost cutting that does not compromise our homeland security is critical.

Have you ever heard of Shariah Law?

Many Have Heard The Term Shariah Law While Many More Have Not

What is Shariah Law? Is it something we in the United states need to be concerned with? Is it a religion, a segment of a religion or something else? Does Shariah Law pose a danger to the national security of the United States and if so how? The following excerpt from an article taken from a website dedicated to examining Shariah Law and it's potential impact to non-Muslim societies is extremely enlightening.

"...Shariah is not a religion. It was created centuries after the written Koran, Islam’s holy book. Just because a person is Muslim and therefore follows the Islamic faith, it does not necessarily mean he or she supports or chooses to live under Shariah. Many Muslims are brutally oppressed under Shariah-Islamic Law...

Iran, U.S. oil supply, attack on Japanese tanker and The Strait of Hormuz

Strategic Importance of The Strait of Hormuz

Little needs to be said about American dependence for oil on the Middle Eastern countries that are much less than friends and who may be much closer to enemies. About 90% of Middle East oil production is shipped through The Strait of Hormuz which accounts for about 20% of the worlds daily requirement for crude. It also provides passage for tankers supplying oil that accounts for about 16% of U.S. daily oil demand (as of 2006 statistics).
