Janet: “Say No to SYRIAN Refugees – Contact Legislators”
Last week’s attacks on the capitol of France by Syrian refugees and refugees from other countries as well as native born Jihadists are a harbinger of things to come for the United States.
“Isis boasted that French blood was sweet bur American Blood would be sweeter. Isis has also boasted that the United States would be attacked in the near future. “President Obama continues to move forward with his unconstitutional plan to surge tens of thousands of Syrian Refugees into the United States even though: FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress that it was not possible for the U.S. to properly vet Syrian refugees because there were no data points that would show past activity for the majority of Syrians. “Due to the security risk to the American People the United States should immediately curtail all plans to resettle Syrian refugees and all other non-vetted Mid-eastern refugees on American soil. “If you agree please contact the office of your Senators and Congressional Representative also please contact your State Senator, Representative and Governor Wolf and sign the online petition as well! “All members of congress can be reached through the Capitol switchboard the number is: 202 224-3121 “Senator Bob Casey can be reached at: 202 224-6324 Phone 866 802-2833 Toll free 4254 202 228-0604 Fax Senator Toomey can be reached at: 814 453-3010 Phone 814 455-9925 Fax I suggest contacting the local offices as the DC switchboard is often jammed.

“It turned out — this time — that the murderers had Muslim names. And they were terrorists. And the disappointment in some quarters is almost palpable.” Jonah Goldberg, 12/4/15
New Hampshire Union Leader: “December 7, 1941: A date which will live in infamy”
“The world was already at war, but it was a seemingly peaceful Sunday morning on Oahu as the first wave of Japanese bombers hugged the volcanic island on its way to Pearl Harbor.
“The sneak attack was an attempt to wipe out the American navy, and pre-empt a war in the Pacific that the Imperial Japanese navy knew it couldn’t win.
“A total of 2,403 Americans died, the most on American soil until 2,977 people died on Sept. 11, 2001.
“‘Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger,’ Franklin Delano Roosevelt told a joint session of Congress on Dec. 8, 1941.
“We could use that kind of clarity once again.
“Radical Islam declared war on America decades ago, but we refuse to acknowledge it.
“We fight wars in the Middle East, and pull back. We treat terrorist attacks on America and our allies as isolated incidents. Congress authorizes Presidents to use force, but can’t bring itself to declare war on our enemies.
“Roosevelt pledged ‘we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again.’
“Can our leaders muster the will to win the fight we are in today?”
Mark Steyn, Steynonline: “If you see something”
“. . . As I wearily say every time, all the stories are different, and yet they’re all the same. Mr Farook turns out, like almost every other “lone wolf”, to be a known wolf:
(CNN)Syed Rizwan Farook — who along with his wife, Tashfeen Malik, carried out the San Bernardino shooting massacre — apparently was radicalized and in touch with people being investigated by the FBI for international terrorism, law enforcement officials said Thursday.
Farook himself had talked by phone and on social media with more than one person being investigated for terrorism, law enforcement officials said.
“So he’s in the system, with his name and phone number, with one degree of separation from terror suspects. But he still got to kill 14 people. Because no matter how massively you expand the panopticon Security State it can never have enough manpower to anticipate the moment a Syed Farook goes full Allahu Akbar. Because political correctness requires that we regard as just another part of the vibrant tapestry of diversity people who believe in everything ISIS believes in (sharia, female subservience, clitoridectomies, death for homosexuals) but stop short of chopping your head off. So we cannot stop them before they open fire.
“Mass Muslim immigration is imposing strains on western society that we cannot meet now, and we will be buried by in the years ahead. Perhaps if we could talk about that honestly we wouldn’t be sideswiped by the next member of the Amalgamated Union of Lone Wolves who – all together now – “appeared to be living the American Dream“.
Peggy Noonan, WSJ: “The First Amendment Needs Your Prayers”
“Jumping on anyone who publicly expressed a religious feeling after the San Bernardino massacre. Where are we heading?
“We are all free to say what we think, and must be, for without this freedom we will no longer be America. More on that below. But you always hope what is said will be constructive, helpful, maybe even at some point heartening. You have a responsibility as an adult to do your best in this area.
“But as soon as the story broke Wednesday afternoon, and while it was still going on, there were accusations and bitter words flung all over the Internet. The weirdest argument came almost immediately. A person named Chris Murphy, who is a U.S. senator representing Connecticut, sent out what struck me as the most manipulative message of recent political history.
“The background is that Republican presidential contestants responded online to the shootings with the only helpful thing you can say—or do, frankly, from faraway—when a story like this occurs. “Praying for the victims, their families & the San Bernardino first responders,” said Jeb Bush. Mike Huckabee said he was “praying.” John Kasich: “My thoughts & prayers go out to those impacted.”
“This managed to enrage the progressive left.
“You can take your prayers and stuff ’em. The answer and the only answer to this tragedy is gun control, and if you’re not for it you’re not allowed to be part of the conversation. ‘Please shut up and slink away,’ tweeted a reporter. Another: ‘Your thoughts and prayers don’t mean a damn thing.’ A reporter at the Huffington Post damned public officials’ ‘useless thoughts and prayers.’ Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos: ‘How many dead people did those thoughts and prayers bring back to the life?’
Mollie Hemingway of the Federalist noted that all these denunciations were literally coming in while victims of the shooting were sending out requests for prayer.
“Journalists, bloggers, contrarians and citizens jumped into the fray. Then the U.S. senator, Chris Murphy, came forward rather menacingly. ‘Your ‘thoughts’ should be about steps to take to stop this carnage. Your ‘prayers’ should be for forgiveness if you do nothing—again.’ . . . ”
LEADS . . .
Victor Davis Hanson, PJM: “Liberal Nihilism in a Nutshell”
“Barack Obama entered office in 2009 with overwhelming popular goodwill and solid majorities in both houses of Congress. He chose not to translate that political heft into passing “comprehensive immigration reform” (i.e., open borders and amnesties) or more gun control.
“He opposed gay marriage. He warned that he could not use presidential fiats to grant amnesty, close down Guantanamo, or remake the EPA in his own image. He borrowed as never before, in vain hopes of kicking-starting a natural recovery that he would soon abort through his own anti-business jawboning, more regulations, growth in government, and tax increases.
“So far Obama’s legacy is a sudden crash in energy prices and an unforeseen huge expansion in U.S. oil and gas production that came despite — not because of — his efforts.
“Indeed, Obama scarcely succeeded in ramming through Obamacare — and only through untruths that it would lower costs and premiums, expand coverage, and ensure continuance of existing plans and patient doctors — and then wisely quit trying to strong-arm other legislation that could have cost him the 2012 election.
“Lies about a renegade video maker causing the deaths in Benghazi, an Al Qaeda “on the run,” and “leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant” Iraq after the U.S. pullout, as well as calcified “Bush did it” smears, relieved just enough voters of their unease over a growing mess abroad.
In other words, Obama and his party wanted to keep winning elections, and therefore apparently felt that they would not if they openly pushed a liberal agenda that was unpopular with the American people. . .”
Andrew McCarthy, NRO: “An Islam of Their Very Own II – Now See How This Works?”
“. . . For the reasons explained in my post earlier today (An Islam of Their Very Own … Cont’d), investigating agents will now heave a sigh of relief because this means their superiors will probably give them the green-light to call the terrorist attack a terrorist attack.
“Understand: nothing in the real world has changed between Wednesday and this morning: The terrorist attack was ignited by Islamic supremacist ideology, a mainstream interpretation of Islam drawn directly and literally from Muslim scripture. So the attack was a terrorist attack when it was happening, it was a terrorist attack yesterday when the government would not acknowledge that fact, and it is a terrorist attack now.
“But in the government’s parallel universe, everything has changed. The agents now apparently have a provable tie between the San Bernardino jihadists and both ISIS and al Qaeda. Because the government has decreed that ISIS and al Qaeda are non-Islamic (even anti-Islamic), it will now be permissible to call the attack terrorism. “Islam is peace and cannot trigger terrorism, so we can’t call mass-murder committed by Muslims ‘terrorism.’ But ISIS/al-Qaeda are anti-Islam because they commit violence. Therefore, now that Farook and Malik are ISIS/al-Qaeda, they are anti-Islam, so we can safely call their attack ‘terrorism.’
Pam Key, Breitbart: “George Will: Americans ‘Have Voted With Their Feet by Going To Gun Stores’”
“This week on the Fox News Sunday’s panel, The Washington Post’s George Will said despite President Barack Obama’s gun control push in the wake of mass shootings Americans have ‘voted with their feet by going to gun stores.’
“Will said, ‘Leaving aside the fact that some of us think The New York Times editorializes on its front page daily, and leaving aside the fact that the last time they did it was in June 1920 when they deplored the nomination of Warren G. Harding who went onto win 60 percent of the popular vote. Leave that aside. When they talk about weapons of war, I think that most readers of that editorial and perhaps the authors of it think that the weapons in were what is called assault weapons, fire more than one bullet per pull of the trigger in a constant burst. Those are called machine guns. They’ve been illegal in this country since 1934. In fact the American people have shown by voting at polling booth for defenders of of the 1st Amendment… of the 2nd Amendment, but also, they have voted with their feet by going to gun stores. What they want is control of their own guns.’
“He added, ‘This year on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, 185,000 Americans got background checks for firearms. That’s a one day record in this country. So the American people have made clear what they think about the 2nd Amendment and the usefulness of owning guns.’”
Adam Kredo, Free Beacon: “72 DHS Employees on Terrorist Watch List”
“At least 72 employees at the Department of Homeland Security are listed on the U.S. terrorist watch list, according to a Democratic lawmaker.
“Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also “were on the terrorist watch list.”
“‘Back in August, we did an investigation—the inspector general did—of the Department of Homeland Security, and they had 72 individuals that were on the terrorist watch list that were actually working at the Department of Homeland Security,’ Lynch told Boston Public Radio.
“‘The [former DHS] director had to resign because of that,’ he said.
“DHS continues to fail inspections aimed at determining the efficiency of its internal safety mechanisms, as well as its efforts to protect the nation. . .”
Karolin Schaps, YAHOO!: “Oil at lowest in almost seven years on OPEC inaction, strong dollar”
“LONDON (Reuters) – Oil prices fell to their lowest in nearly seven years on Monday after OPEC’s meeting ended in disagreement over production cuts and without a reference to its output ceiling, while a stronger dollar made it more expensive to hold crude positions.
“The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) ended its policy meeting on Friday without agreeing to lower production.
“For the first time in decades, oil ministers dropped any reference to the group’s output ceiling, highlighting disagreement among members about how to accommodate Iranian barrels once Western sanctions are lifted.
“‘A stronger dollar and the aftershock of Friday’s OPEC meeting are weighing on the oil market,’ said Tamas Varga, oil analyst at brokerage PVM Oil Associates in London . . .”
Philip Rucker, WaPo: “Ted Cruz vows to ‘utterly destroy ISIS’ and ‘carpet bomb’ terrorists”
“DES MOINES — Sen. Ted Cruz said here Saturday that the 2016 presidential race has entered a more serious phase following the shooting massacre in San Bernardino, Calif., and escalated his rhetoric on foreign policy with a vow to kill Islamic State terrorists.
“‘If I am elected president, we will utterly destroy ISIS,’ the Texas senator and Republican presidential candidate told reporters. ‘We won’t weaken them. We won’t degrade them. We will utterly destroy them. We will carpet bomb them into oblivion. We will arm the Kurds. We will do everything necessary so that every militant on the face of the earth will know if you go and join ISIS, if you wage jihad and declare war on America, you are signing your death warrant.’. . . ”
Investors: “Democrats Talk Gun Control, Climate, Bullying, Anything But Terrorism”
Barry is not the only politician worried about his next job . . .
“War On Terror: Just hours after one of the worst terrorist attacks in U.S. history, Democratic leaders had lots to say about gun control, climate change, even bullying — everything but radical Islamic terrorism.
“Former Obama aide Rahm Emanuel’s maxim ‘Never let a serious crisis go to waste’ could now be considered a Democratic mantra.
“After the recent Paris terrorism that killed 130 and after radical Islamist terrorists Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, killed 14 people during a Christmas party this week, some Democratic leaders continue to exploit the tragic events to push a far-left domestic agenda that has nothing to do with terrorism.
“President Obama this week at climate talks in Paris blamed climate, not radical Islam, for fostering ‘dangerous’ ideologies. ‘In some ways,’ he said, “(climate change) is akin to the problem of terrorism and ISIL.’
“So how would he respond to terrorist attacks such as the one this week in San Bernardino? By taxing carbon. And by cracking down on guns through executive order — disarming terrorists’ victims, not the perpetrators.
“Meanwhile, Attorney General Loretta Lynch says her ‘greatest fear’ after the attacks isn’t of more terrorism but of an anti-Muslim backlash. . .”
Julia Hahn, Big Govt: “Cruz, Paul: Shut Down Immigration from Islamic State Nations”
“Presidential candidates Sens. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
are demanding a halt to immigration from Muslim nations with jihadist movements.
“Their fellow contender, Sen. Marco Rubio, did not call for curbs to Muslim immigration in his live response to the President address on Fox News – a response promoted by Rubio’s campaign.
“The President should place an immediate moratorium on refugees from countries with a significant al Qaeda or ISIS presence, such as Syria. I’ve introduced legislation to make this happen; it is not a desired step, but a necessary step for the security of the United States.
“‘Immigration visas & refugees from countries with active terror networks must be halted while we determine how to better secure our borders,’ Paul in a separate tweet. ‘His administration is focused on gun laws that won’t stop terrorists while pushing policies that will let more of them in the country,’ Paul wrote. . .”

Katia Hetter, CNN: Pearl Harbor: 12/7/1941
“(CNN)On the day the nation pays tribute to those who perished in the December 7, 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona memorial will honor the man who was the ship’s oldest surviving officer.
“As part of the 74th anniversary of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day on Monday, the ashes of retired Navy Lt. Cmdr. Joe Langdell, who died at age 100 in February, will be interred in the ship with full military burial honors.
“The day-long schedule can be viewed via a livestream feed at pearlharborevents.com/live-stream.
“Langdell, who was an ensign at the time, wasn’t on board when the attack took place at the naval base in Hawaii but rushed back to help rescue survivors and collect the remains of his fallen shipmates.
“The USS Arizona battleship was bombed and sunk during Japan’s surprise morning attack on Pearl Harbor that pulled the United States into World War II.
“The remains of many of the 1,177 U.S. military personnel who died aboard the Arizona are still inside the submerged wreck. It was the greatest loss of life ever in an attack on a U.S. warship, the National Park Service says.”
Graeme Wood, The Atlantic: “What ISIS Really Wants”
“In reviewing Mein Kampf in March 1940, George Orwell confessed that he had “never been able to dislike Hitler”; something about the man projected an underdog quality, even when his goals were cowardly or loathsome. ‘If he were killing a mouse he would know how to make it seem like a dragon.’ The Islamic State’s partisans have much the same allure. They believe that they are personally involved in struggles beyond their own lives, and that merely to be swept up in the drama, on the side of righteousness, is a privilege and a pleasure—especially when it is also a burden.
“Fascism, Orwell continued, is
‘psychologically far sounder than any hedonistic conception of life … Whereas Socialism, and even capitalism in a more grudging way, have said to people “I offer you a good time,” Hitler has said to them, “I offer you struggle, danger, and death,” and as a result a whole nation flings itself at his feet … We ought not to underrate its emotional appeal.
“Nor, in the case of the Islamic State, its religious or intellectual appeal. That the Islamic State holds the imminent fulfillment of prophecy as a matter of dogma at least tells us the mettle of our opponent. It is ready to cheer its own near-obliteration, and to remain confident, even when surrounded, that it will receive divine succor if it stays true to the Prophetic model. . .”
Janet: Almost There
Letter is below, authors are Cloward and Pivens, book title is Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates by Brian Kilmeade. Enjoy!
YES, WE ARE ALMOST DONE. JUST ONE ELECTION DECIDES OUR FATE….
There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a socialist/communist State. The first is the most important.
5 OF THE 8 ARE DONE – THE LAST 3 ARE ALMOST THERE???
- Healthcare: “Control Healthcare and you control the People.” DONE!!!
- Poverty: “Increase the Poverty level as high as possible.” Poor People are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live. DONE!!!
- Debt: “Increase the National Debt to an unsustainable level.” That way you are able to increase Taxes, and this will produce more Poverty. DONE!!!
- Gun Control: “Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government.” That way you are able to create a Police State – total local control. ALMOST THERE!!!
- Welfare: “Take control of every aspect of their lives” (Food, Livestock, Housing, and Income). DONE!!!
- Education: “Take control of what People read & listen to take control of what Children learn in School.” ALMOST THERE!!!
- Religion “Remove faith in God from the Government and School.” ALMOST THERE!!!
- Class Warfare: “Divide the People into the Wealthy against the Poor. Racially divide.” This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to Tax the Wealthy with full support of the voting Poor. DONE!!!
The bases are all covered! We are ripe for the New World Order.
Forward this or delete it… and just sit there and wring our hands wondering what to do.
