The Left & the MSM are THE EXISTENTIAL THREAT to America

Senate Security Briefing Documents the Real Issues Facing the US

The Left Wing media and the Democrat Party are distracting US citizens with the “Russia” and “Comey” issues while the world left by Obama is a powder-keg ready to consume the West.

The Senate Intelligence Committee met today in an open, then closed, session to review the status of world-wide threats with the heads of the CIA, FBI, NSA the DNI and others.  The purpose of the hearing was to lay out to the committee the status of world and threats to the US.  Too bad the MSM is cherry picking the discussion as even the open portion of the meeting was scary to say the least.  But, the MSM focus remains on the Comey firing and the “Russian/Trump” left-wing conspiracy.  They feel this is more important than the US being attacked at home and abroad by radicals and enemies across the globe.  This is TRAITOROUS at best.

Bullet Points from the Meeting:

  • The American people deserve to know that North Korea represents an EXISTENTIAL threat to the US NOW! 
  • They need to know that Russia is seeking to expand their territorial land grab in Europe, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. 
  • Also, Russia is stepping up their counter-intelligence efforts using updated technology and methods as are the US and others.
  •   NATO nations are threatened by Russian westward expansion; continued radical Islam terror attacks; 
  • The US is directly threatened by terrorism plans from Al Qaeda, ISIS, Iran and other radical groups;
  • and Iran is rapidly moving toward developing their nuclear capability and refining their delivery systems. 

All the MSM and the left can focus on is their narrative that Trump colluded with the Russians and defeated Clinton!

The graphic above shows that in spite of wall to wall coverage of Director Comey for the past year or so, only 17% of Americans have a positive view of the Director! In spite of his notoriety, 48% of Americans have no opinion of Comey.  And, 40% OF AMERICANS FEEL CONGRESS IS SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME ON THE “RUSSIAN AND WIRETAPPING” INVESTIGATIONS!  American need jobs and security, not political rhetoric!

Trump will continue to deliver on his campaign promises that are already making the MSM and the left apoplectic.  Their coordinated efforts to de-legitimize President Trump is inciting violence, hatred, and is posing an existential threat to our democracy and our future.

The only possible outcome from this activity is higher and higher levels of violence ending with and all out armed conflict between the left and the legitimate government of the United States.  When?   Probably well before the end of Trump’s first term and perhaps as early as the mid-term elections.   We will see how sanctimonious the MSM pundits and the Democrat fringe are when this occurs.  Hopefully Trump will utilize the tactics of his hero Andrew Jackson, rather than Abraham Lincoln, and not engage in a civil war to bring the country back together. 

Far fetched?  It starts with killing free speech.  The left has a coordinated effort underway on college campuses and elsewhere to shut down conservative viewpoints.  Sanctuary cities are already defying Federal laws and are aided and abetted by left-wing judges who ignore the Constitution and the rule of law.  Firing the first shot is merely a matter of who and when.

Attacking Our Military! Leftist Globalist Attempt to Lower Our Preparedness

US National Guard Troops Defrauded Out Of “Signing Bonus”

to Keep Troop Levels up in Iraq and Afghanistan

Easy Fix for their Commander-In-Chief But He Is MIA!

 

troops-defauded

In 2006 and 2007, National Guard Troops were offered $15,000 to re-enlist for an additional 6 Year tour.  That is a “Whopping” $2,500 per year to take a chance on being killed or maimed.  There were other programs that would also help pay off student loans that the soldiers had accumulated. 

Then, in 2010,  our brilliant federal government bureaucracy audited the bonus programs and found that the soldiers either did not qualify for the bonuses or did not fill out the paperwork!  But, their superiors granted the Bonuses and the Soldiers served their time!  PERIOD. 

To add “insult to audit”, threatening Dunning letters were sent to our troops demanding repayment or their wages would be garnered, their tax refunds would be snatched, their property seized, or all of the above.  This by bureaucrats who have probably never even seen a combat boot let alone be in combat and risk their life! 

To Put This in Perspective,

the Total the Government is Trying to Snatch Back From

Our Troops is $150,000,000. 

Our Wonderful Congress Costs Us About

$107,000,000 PER YEAR Plus Expenses Which Triples This Amount! 

How are the Troops Going To Get Their 6 Years Back?

The horror stories by our troops is unimaginable.  Master Sergeant Susan Haley said she got the first collection letter from the government in 2012 while she was at a Texas military hospital visiting her son, an Army medic whose leg had been blown off in Afghanistan.  Great way to say thank you to a family who has given so much.  Haley still owes the government $20,500 and has been making a $650 per month payment (25% of her total income).  She is now unable to make her payments.  Haley stated that she will try to pay back the money but that she will never get back the six extra years she gave the Army.  There are hundreds of similar stories.

How Can This Happen?

I believe that this travesty was caused by first of all a dumb mistake by the Bush Administration then a deliberate attempt by the Obama Administration to demoralize our troops to drive down enlistment numbers!  Yes, the California National Guard gave the order to the auditors to recoup the money that erroneously APPROVED for the soldiers, but there is no way this did not go to the top, the Commander-In-Chief and his staff before the recovery program was initiated.  This money would have been initially reimbursed or paid by the federal government, not the State of California.  No bureaucrat is going to go out on a limb without someone covering his rear-end. 

Why would Obama want to demoralize the military?  The left hates the volunteer army and is constantly trying to make a case for reinstating the draft for “social justice” reasons.  Also, Obama used the budgeting process to decimate the military funding via the sequester agreement thus sending a signal to the troops that he is not supporting them financially.  Obama’s rules of engagement in Iran and Afghanistan have forced our troops to be human targets and not engage in many dangerous situations that are life threatening and further demoralized our troops knowing that optics trump their safety.  Finally, the Leftist Globalists have to weaken the US military to make it ineffective in stopping their global realignment via supporting insurrection, fomenting civil wars, and forcing global open immigration.

The US Military is the only barrier to the West loosing its grip on social order around the world.  The Leftist Globalists thrive on disorder as they create turmoil then sweep in and gobble up the world treasure at basement prices.  Don’t think so, just look at what Soros and Buffet made off of the 2008 recession when they bought up billions in banking and securities assets at pennies on the dollar.  With global oil and other resources at stake, the degradation of our military is paramount in the minds of these enemies.

This is not a conspiracy theory, it is a regurgitation of their policy as it applies to all events that they can use to achieve their goals of global dominance.

Obama Could Stop the Harassment of Our Troops by a Stoke of His Well Worn Pen, But he Won’t

Congress Could Come Back in an Emergency Session and Stop this Harrassment, But they Won’t

Priorities Anyone!

Syria-What Will Be the Outcome?

Who Will Be the Winners?

Who Will Be the Losers?

syria-2011-2015

In merely 4 1/2 years, the status and toll of this conflict varies by source but the Syrian Centre for Policy Research (SCPR) estimates that 11.5%, of the Syrian population has been killed or wounded.  They estimate that 470,000 men, women and children have been killed since 2011 while the United Nation estimates this number to be 250,000, but the UN stopped estimating casualties 18 months ago.  11 million of the 18 million Syrians have lost their homes.   The number of wounded has been estimated at 1,900,000.  Destruction to Syria itself is estimated to be over quarter of a Trillion dollars. Regardless of the actual numbers, this conflict has been catastrophic to Syria and its people.   

Who Are the Good Guys?

Or, are there any good guys in this conflict?  Go back to 2011 when the “Arab Spring” sprung and was blessed by the Obama regime.  Inside of Syria, “pro-democracy” dissident groups began fighting back against the Assad Syrian Government and this soon erupted into a nation-wide conflict as Assad cracked down on the dissidents.  To this day I doubt anyone truly knows who or what the dissidents are.  

To understand the Syrian conflict, you need to understand that Assad and the government are Alawite Shia Muslims and the dissidents are primarily Sunni MuslimsFurther, Assad has been tightly aligned with Iran with both being supported by Russia!  So, you have the Assad Syrian Government, Iran (via Hezbollah), and Russia on one side, with the primarily Sunni dissidents on the other.

But, with Obama’s and Clinton’s precipitous withdrawal from Iraq, a vacuum was created that was filled by the newly formed Sunni Islamic State (ISIS).  ISIS and Iran both want to dominate and control the rich resources of Syria and Iraq.  So, ISIS secured large regions of Syria from the Assad Government and set up the capital of their “Caliphate” in Raqqa, Syria!  So, now you have ISIS and the dissidents fighting against Assad, Iran, and Russia!  But, ISIS and the dissidents are not aligned and ISIS forces or kills dissidents who do not swear allegiance to their caliphate.  To make it even more complicated, the Kurds occupy much of northern Syria and Southern Turkey and they don’t like anyone particularly!  The map below shows how Syria has been carved up by each group.

 

mapThe bottom line is that there may not be any “good guys” in this conflict, just a bunch of guys fighting for their own self interests!

Where Does the US Fit In?

Depends!  From Obama’s perspective, the US has two goals.  First goal, don’t cross the Iranians.  Two, act like you are fighting ISIS.  The first goal became evident when Obama penciled in his Red Line regarding Assad’s use of chemical weapons.  Obama/Clinton were told in no uncertain terms that the Iranian nuclear talks were over if Obama intervened in Syria against Assad.  So, Obama/Clinton took out their Red Line Eraser and we bowed again to the Ayatollahs in Iran.  The second goal included arming the dissidents to a low-level so the dissidents could fight ISIS on the ground.  Of course the dissidents took shots at Assad’s army as they were actually the primary dissident target and both the dissidents were Sunni.  Some believe that the CIA annex in Benghazi was a front for moving arms from Libya to the Syrian dissidents.  Obama/Clinton mixed using the dissidents and air strikes against ISIS to show the American public that he was fighting against ISIS in both Syria and Iraq.

From the Neo-Con perspective, the US needs to intervene on behalf of the dissidents as all freedom fighters who want democracy are good and deserve our help to whatever degree possible, including armed intervention!  You heard Senators McCain and Graham on talk shows the past 4.5 years demanding that we back the dissidents.  McCain even met with some of them in Syria.  The Neo-Cons would have the US engage directly in the Syrian conflict with the dual goals of removing Assad from power and killing off ISIS.  Whoa!  Assad is backed by Iran and Russia and to a lesser degree, China.  What the Neo-Cons are advocating are at least a 4 power war over Syria!  The Assad regimes have ruled Syria since 1971, why now?

From a US Self-Interest perspective today, the horse is out of the barn; the train left the station; and any other cliché you want to use to describe a situation in Syria that is only a Lose-Lose for the US.  Obama’s and Clinton’s lack of action early on removed all US options in this country, if we ever had any, other than all out war with Russia, Iran and Syria.  The fact is that since Obama/Clinton abandoned Iraq with his rapid pullout, Iraq will most likely align with Iran.  The majority in both countries are Shia and Iran has coveted Iraq in order to create a three state power consisting of Syria, Iraq and Iran.  They will then look towards Lebanon, Jordon and Israel for additional conquests. 

In Syria, we have put up with an Assad regime in power, aligned with Russia and Iran, for over 45 years.  It makes no sense from a national self-interest to engage the Assad regime in Syria.  We do have a national self-interest in annihilating ISIS and that interest is shared by Syria, Russia, Iran and Iraq. 

Trump Is Right in Syria:

You may not like Donald Trump but he is dead right on Syria.  We have a national self-interest in removing ISIS from Iraq and Syria but no self interest in removing Assad from power.  The shame of it all is that we lost countless lives, many of our soldiers were gravely wounded in the war in Iraq, and we spent trillions of dollars for naught.  Iraq also suffered casualties ranging upwards of 250,000 including both military and civilians.  To walk away is a shame on both the Bush and Obama/Clinton administrations.  Bush should not have left the status of forces agreement up to Obama/Clinton and Obama/Clinton should not have walked away from Iraq without a solid SFA with Iraq.  But, we did and we need to cut our loses and get out after taking our ISIS.

Lesson? 

History repeats itself if we do not learn from our mistakes.  We failed politically, not militarily, in Vietnam and in Iraq.  We may have to add Afghanistan if we keep up our current politically correct engagement.  We need to learn to lead from strength, engage when our national-interests are jeopardized, and walk away when it is not our fight.  There will always be bad guys and we will always have to stand strong against them.  But, to pick fights when we are not threatened or do not have the will to win politically, like Iraq and Vietnam, it will always end in failure. 

If you get a chance, read or peruse Sun Tzu’s the Art of War, written 500 years BC.  It is still a good “rule book” for fighting a war today.   (http://suntzusaid.com/)

Obama to Give Our Control of OUR Internet to Globalist and Our Enemies

Globalist Unite!  Give Away US Control Over the Internet

Piece by Piece

The Dismantling of America

Ryan Obama Internet

Continuing the Obama Agenda to

Fundamentally Change America!

On October 1st, 2016, The US Department of Commerce will finalize the surrender of control of the internet to  a GLOBAL INTERNATIONAL AUTHORITY.   Over the past 20 years, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will no longer be administered by the US National Telecommunications and Information Administration with oversight by the U.S. Department of Commerce.  The new international coalition will include countries such as China, Russia, Iran and others.  This plan has been supported by the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations.

Why should you care?  ICANN basically controls the internet, period.  ICANN manages the world’s domain and IP address database that in effect, keeps the internet running smoothly and insures stability and internet security.  In effect, it controls every URL (Uniform resource locator), AKA web address/host names, and email domains and addresses used on the internet.  For example, http://www.google.com, Your.Name.Gmail.com, http://www.whitehouse.gov, etc.   Control of this database is as strategic as protecting access to our power grid, financial institutions, military installations, and many more vital resources of the U.S..  In the wrong hands, entire countries, major industries, major defense systems, and terror networks can be enabled or disabled by who is in charge of ICANN.  On October 1st, this will no longer be the United States!

Key Question:  Do you think the internet, that we invented, should be managed by an agency that pretty much looks like the United Nations?  How has the UN been to us and to our allies like Israel?  Not so good. 

If we relinquish the control over the Internet to a body that does not have our best interest at heart, why are we taking this step towards information and infrastructure annihilation?  Why would we put our financial institutions at risk?  Our Military?  Our industry?  Our very existence?

Because George Soros and the Globalist Oligarchy Thrive On Anarchy!

They Swoop In and Buy Up the Rubble for 10 Cents on the Dollar!

Remember the 2008 Recession and Financial Crisis?  That was not an accident!

Let Trump Know You Want this Stopped.  Congress is a Waste of Time! 

After 3 Administrations, Congress Has Yet to Act!

Trump-ISIS and America First

Trump Has Put Forth Several Different Components of

Fighting the War On Terror (1)

 

Section 1

This article consists of two sections.  The first will lay out the terrorism issues and the second, the Trump policies to counteract the terror threat.  This article is a little long but the need to be as comprehensive as possible to lay out the problem, then the solution, makes it necessary.

War On Terror Is Not Just An ISIS Problem:

While Trump has kept the defeat of ISIS as his top priority in waging the war on terror, he and his security team have referenced the broader group of Islamists that include Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, Boko Haram, and others.  They have more broadly discussed the issue of Radical Islam as supported by Islamists.  ISIS is at the forefront as it is the closest known direct threat to the US and Europe.  The other groups are no less lethal and threaten Central African and Middle Eastern countries.  Hamas and Hezbollah are really state sponsored terror groups funded in a large part by Iran.  In that vein, Trump views Iran as a major antagonist in the war on terror as well as a global nuclear threat that resulted from the Obama Iran Nuclear agreement.

A Trump administration would view Radical Islam as the enemy regardless of their self-described sect or moniker.  Further, with this view, the war on terror is not isolated to one or more radical Islam groups, but rather is inclusive of all of the groups and solutions have to address the concept of radical Islam rather than the more tactical view of ISIS alone.

Terror MatrixWar On Terror Matrix (Partial, For Illustration Only)

Tentacles of Terrorism:

On the right hand side of the graphic shown above, there is a column titled “Tentacles of Terrorism.  The list includes 9 items but it should be noted that the list is actually quite longer and nuanced.  But, for purposes of this article, this list will provide a springboard for discussion.  (The Taliban is excluded from this discussion as they are locally focused and semi-governmental in nature.)  

Command and Control:

In the past, command and control within terror groups have consisted of a dispersed group of leaders communicating with one another in any way they could devise.  They did not have bases of operations where synchronized planning and communications could take place.  Some of their communications involved the releasing of video tapes by terrorists like Osama bin Laden and his key followers.  

ISIS has broken that mold and seems to have much of its centralized command and control in the Syrian city of Al-Raqqah.  They are establishing sub C&C centers in Iran, Libya and other expansion areas.  ISIS has also broken out and disbursed C&C to local cells such as the one in Brussels.  ISIS has also mastered a new paradigm of creating what has been erroneously called lone wolf actors.  These are not lone wolf actors that act out based on their own motivations.  A better description would be Decentralized Islamic Radicals (DIR).  

These individuals and small groups have become radicalized through the ISIS internet propaganda campaigns.  Just as non-state sponsored terrorism was created so nations could not retaliate against nations, the newly created DIR terrorists are an attempt to eliminate the need for direct contact to train, motivate, and execute despicable terror acts.  Al-Qaeda attempted to create this form of terror in the early 2000’s but were not as successful as ISIS has been.  AQ also was more focused on large-scale attacks whereas ISIS sees any form of terrorism as meeting their objectives of domination through fear.

This category of terrorist may be the most difficult to detect and stop as the campaign has been designed to take advantage of surveillance protocols in the US and Europe.  By remaining under the radar of normal surveillance via covert or non electronic communication, they can plan and execute with a high degree of anonymity.  In the San Bernardino and Orlando attacks, it was not until long after the attacks did we learn that the radicalization of the perpetrators took place over an extended period of time.  Further, our current tracking protocols are totally incapable of creating an effective prevention regime.  NSA surveillance will not yield much information to prevent these types of attacks.

Operational Organization:

Operational organization includes not only a hierarchical management team, but financial, military, cyber, asset, and terror export management.  AQ started with a tightly controlled management team with Osama Bin Laden at the top.  As international pressure was applied, their leadership dispersed and they became a less centralized organization.  Hezbollah and Hamas basically are tightly controlled from Iran.

ISIS has created a hybrid form of operational organization.  The centralized governance is located in Al-Raqqah with disbursed “subsidiaries” in Iran, Libya and elsewhere.  The DIR groups basically give ISIS a totally decentralized and distributed form of cell management that can operate with or without communication or funding from Al-Raqqah.

Financial Operations:

AQ, Hamas, and Hezbollah and others have relied to a large degree on funding from nation states and individuals who are sympathetic to their war on the West.  This funding has been subsidized by criminal activities such as “Kidnapping and Ransom (KNR)” and other such activities.  Hamas and Hezbollah are principally financed by Iran and Syria whereas Saudi Arabia was a major contributor to AQ and other terrorist organizations. 

ISIS has added a new twist to its terrorist financial operations.  ISIS captures oil and banking assets and turns them into cash flow to support ongoing operations.  While this is a “fragile” arrangement, as these operations are exposed either physically or via banking transactions, they have allowed ISIS to be self-sufficient financially.  Also, their use of DIR terror, basically makes a lot of their terror operations virtually free! 

Military Operations:

Typically, terror organizations consider tactical strikes of terror, even 9-11, as military operations.  Traditionally we have defined military operations as an organized effort to take and control geographical areas, regions, or even nations.  This definition fits the ISIS operation but not most other terror groups.  ISIS has invaded and taken control of areas in Iraq, Syria and Libya but are moving into central Africa and other areas in the Middle East.  Much of their arms and equipment were “confiscated” from weaponry and assets left behind by the US!  ISIS military operations appear to be centrally controlled through their headquarters in Syria.  ISIS military operations are both sophisticated and fairly well self-financed.  This gives ISIS a military and terror component that heretofore has not be pursued by most terror groups.

Cyber Operations:

Due to technological advancements in recent years, the use of the internet, hacking, and other cyber activities have been adopted by terror organizations.  The dark internet has provided an area of communications that is difficult to track and police effectively.  Facebook, Twitter and other mass use applications provide a vehicle for terror groups to communicate, recruit and train followers.  Their use of hundreds of temporary accounts have made it impossible to shut down or track a lot of its usage.

Since the birth of ISIS is a fairly recent phenomena, they were early adopters of technology to recruit and train their military operations and DIR cells.  The Obama administration erroneously refers to those recruited, radicalized and deployed via these Cyber tools as “lone wolves”.  This is totally masking the danger and effectiveness of ISIS to perform their outreach and radicalization on citizens of any nation, making the tracking of these would be terrorists difficult if not impossible. 

Cyber hacking also allows terror organizations disrupt or intercept banking, security, and intelligence information and can even be a lucrative source of revenue.  The larger concern is that terrorist organizations will develop either a nuclear or non-nuclear Pulse Bomb (EMP) that is deployable via a drone!  This could be used to wipe out computers and communications in very large metro areas.  This is particularly worrisome following our ill-advised Iranian Nuclear agreement.  Between Iran and N. Korea, neither would have any hesitation deploying this technology and they would probably opt for the nuclear variety in order to maximize the damage.   Cyber terror will continue to grow until governments take a much more aggressive approach to eliminate this threat.

Exporting Terror Operations & Cells:

ISIS has taken the exporting of terrorism to a whole new level.  Al-Qaeda attempted to accomplish this but were primarily successful in underdeveloped areas without a lot of counter-terror security.  ISIS has deeply penetrated the west, especially the European Union (EU) nations, with their terror network.  They have taken advantage of the dark-net and social media to recruit, train and deploy “lone” terrorists described above as DIRs.  It is simplistic to label these individuals as lone terrorists as you will miss the key point which is how they were created in the first place!  ISIS created them, indoctrinated them, and gave them the emotional strength to carry out acts of terrorism. 

Terror Exported-Europe:

The EU has blindfolded itself and tied at least one of their own hands behind their backs as a result of their open borders and Syrian refugee immigration programs…  They have brought in millions of immigrants from countries who have supported or allowed terrorists to prosper.  ISIS has taken advantage of both programs and has many supporters throughout the EU.  ISIS is also recruiting more each day as the EU has failed to integrate many of these immigrants which has created Muslim ghettos where hatred of the West and continued radicalization is nurtured and allowed to mature into dangerous terror cells.   The EU and the individual countries’ no-gun policies have exacerbated the vulnerability of their own citizens.  The key question is whether the EU has tipped past a point of no return! 

BREXIT Note:  It should be noted that the upcoming referendum in the UK, that will decide whether the UK remains in the EU or be independent of that organization, could be critical to the future of both the EU and the UK.  It is my opinion that if the UK stays in the EU, that the decline of Europe will continue on its current accelerated pace.  All of Europe will eventually be overrun with immigrants, many of whom support Sharia and a great number who have become radicalized.  If the UK breaks away, it may provide incentive for some of the other members of the EU to depart the union or at the very least challenge the highly unpopular mass immigration policies of Brussels.  The UK then could also become a base of strength that is not hamstrung with the woes that are besetting the rest of Europe and may eventually be the military base that “liberates” the mainland!  Déjà vu all over again!  This time, however, fascism would have been imported by their own actions and not a result of a foreign nation’s invasion…

Terror Exported-US:

During the Obama administration, one million additional Muslim immigrants have entered the US will little or very shallow vetting.   Obama is also increasing the Syrian Refugee immigration with the same porous level of vetting.  A recent survey in the US among our Muslim population found that 50% of the current Muslim population support Sharia Law over the US legal system.  While many of our past Muslim immigrants have assimilated into our population, many of the more recent immigrants have not.  This is especially true of many of the central African immigrants. 

While the US is a little better off in terms of harboring radical terrorists, it is not too far behind.  If current levels of immigration from these sources continue and allowed to expand, we will quickly be at a tipping point in the US as well.  We have already seen ISIS terrorists engage in mass killings in San Bernardino and Orlando.  These will continue to grow in numbers and frequency as the current administration is incapable of dealing with Radical Islamic Terrorism as a concept, let alone a reality!

Section 2

Enter Donald J. Trump

The Trump Anti-Terror Policy (1)

Donald Trump, his surrogates and foreign policy team have all discussed various components of a Trump Anti-Terror Policy.  While many details remain to be filled in, it is possible to formulate a structured overall policy based on these discussions. 

Terror Defense

The graphic shown above contains 9 separate components of the Trump war on terror.  These components may have multiple targets such as ISIS, Al-Qaeda, while others may be more specific.  One purpose of this graphic is to show that an effective war on terrorism is not a simple strategy and has many components and moving parts!  It should be noted that the next administration is some 210 days away and the situation on the ground will obviously change somewhat between now and then.  The actual ground situation could alter the tactical deployment of various strategies.  Also, the matrix shown above contains several components many of which will have to be implemented simultaneously.   Below is an overview of what may shake out as the Trump war on terror policy.

Military Intervention:

We all understand warfare where ground troops, air strikes and other combat tactics are deployed.  In the case of terrorism, the military strategy will include various strategies and tactics depending on the terror organization and the geographic area that has been impacted.  For purposes of this article, the focus will be on military operations against ISIS.

ISIS Syria:

A key to defeating ISIS will be the destruction of its command and control center in Al-Raqqua, Syria.  This effort will require at least 3,000 special operations and technical unit personnel with 15,000 troops from neighboring nations such as Egypt and Jordan to stabilize this region following the decimation of the ISIS command and control.  It will also require the use of non-nuclear EMP attacks to shut down the ISIS communication capabilities.  Targeted air strikes will be key and they will have to be supported by ground intelligence in order to minimize collateral damage.  It must be noted that any effective military incursion into Al-Raqqua will result in civilian casualties.  This will be caused by ISIS using civilians as cover.  In today’s war against terror, the US and its allies must prepare their citizens that collateral damage is a reality caused by the enemy, and not our liberation efforts!

The fact that Syrian Assad government is still in place adds a new dimension to our offensive moves in Al-Raqqua.  Trump will most likely give Assad and Russia assurances that our primary objective is the elimination of ISIS and NOT regime change in Syria.  (That train has already left the station with all of the failed Obama red lines.)  Trump will also need assurances with Russia that our goal is singular and not threatening to Russia’s interests in the area.  Once the command and control of ISIS is taken out, the international force, that is primarily comprised of other Middle Eastern nations, will secure the Al-Raqqua area and allow humanitarian relief to help restore the area.  Additional refugee camps will have to be constructed to bridge the relocation task that will take quite a while to complete and stop the mass exodus out of Syria into the West.

Trump will also have to freeze Iran out of Syria during these operations.  Iran’s meddling in Iraq will be dealt with separately.  The bottom line is that if Assad remains in control of Syria, Iran will continue its status as an ally with Syria as it has for decades!

ISIS Libya: 

Military intervention into Libya will be a similar multi-national force, primarily consisting of Egypt and Jordan supported by our special operations and technical unit personnel.  Without the command and control in Al-Raqqua, the ISIS operations in other countries will be severely crippled.  Couple that with the Trump program to seize oil and financial resources of ISIS, in Syria, Iraq and Libya, the ISIS resistance in Libya will be severely reduced.  The key issue in Libya will be to have the Islamic coalition re-establish stability and governance in Libya.  Egypt particularly, as the next door neighbor to Libya, has a vested interest in the establishment of a stable Libya.  The final military operation will be one of “Martial Law” to keep the Libyan war lords from continuing their opposition to stabilization. 

ISIS Central Africa:

ISIS in Central Africa is presently not as cohesive as in Syria and Libya.  Without support from Syria, the Central African allegiance to ISIS will be seriously degraded.  Military operations in Central Africa will consist of US special operations with the majority of the force being from other Islamic nations.  The goal will NOT be nation building but the elimination of the terror elements. 

Financial and Oil Asset Seizure:

Trump has talked a great deal about the retaking of ISIS controlled oil assets and seizing any financial assets or revenue that they have used to grow and sustain their operations.  The oil asset seizure will consist of air strikes against oil trucks and ground troops to take back the oil facilities.  The risk will be that ISIS will demolish the oil facilities as they depart.  That is a risk that we need to take and if it happens we can rebuild the infrastructure paying for it with oil revenue once the asset have been re-established. 

The financial and oil asset seizure strategy is vital to the total elimination of ISIS (and other terrorist organizations).  Once they lack funding, their ability to fund external operations diminishes greatly.  Without internet communications, recruitment, training and deployment of foreign ISIS terrorist will be greatly diminished. 

International, Domestic Intelligence & Law Enforcement Coordination:

Rudy Giuliani and others could be vital to the formulation of our International and Domestic Anti-Terror reset under Trump.  Giuliani understands the absolute necessity of coordination between International Intelligence, the FBI and local law enforcement.  The creation of Homeland Security under Bush has only served to create a behemoth bureaucracy that is still ineffective in creating a state of the art communication team that is all-inclusive.  Recent terror attacks have shown that local law enforcement has been out of the loop in terms of threats or the surveillance of specific individuals.  This has to change!

A key to the short and long-term elimination of Radical Islamic Terrorism, will be to create an international team of local assets that can gather and communicate intelligence on all terror operations world-wide.  This has been typically a CIA operation but I am not sure that agency is capable of effective foreign operations at this point.  Trump may need to “retool” the CIA.  These assets must be locals who can infiltrate terror organizations.  This will require a serious commitment to this type of foreign intelligence.  All of the information that is gained by this agency, must be tightly coordinated with the Domestic Intelligence operation.

US Domestic Intelligence operations are typically executed by the FBI.  Like the CIA, the capabilities and organization of the FBI will be reviewed and revamped as necessary.  The FBI has to work seamlessly with the International Intelligence operations to ensure that any threat uncovered can quickly be translated into local action by local law enforcement 

The Domestic Intelligence operation will also include agencies like the NSA.  The NSA intelligence mandate will be reviewed by Trump with a refocus on social media and targeted electronic monitoring.  To day, the NSA massive data storage has only served to provide post event intelligence.  By then, it is a bit too late.  The entire system needs to be refocused on targeted threats both domestic and foreign and within constitutional constraints. 

Immigration Security and Border Control:

Trump will definitely curtail or dramatically cut back on immigration from countries where terror threats have emanated and also the Syrian Refugee program.  He will create a team to propose changes that are needed in immigration policy and vetting procedures as well as a new post immigration follow-up.  The Syrian Refugee program may be replaced by building Syrian refugee camps to temporarily house refugees until we rid Syria of ISIS.  Other Visa programs may be restarted once the new programs and screening are in place.  The new policies will include the tracking of Visa immigrants to insure that overstays are brought back under control. 

Physical control over the southern and northern border is critical to stop the influx of illegal immigrants as well as drugs and other undesirable smuggling.  A physical fence will be built on the southern border with increased electronic and drone coverage for both the northern and southern borders.  The federal border control agencies will once again be mandated to closely coordinate enforcement with local law enforcement.  Sanctuary States or cities will be eliminated as a violation of federal law and any offending States or cities will be sanctioned by the withholding of federal funds. 

Federal, State and local law enforcement will re-institute the deportation of illegal aliens with first priority on those who have violated other Federal, State or local laws.  Due to the neglect over the past seven and a half years that has created a backlog in our immigration courts, special legislation may be needed to create additional courts and jurisdictions to eliminate the backlog.

The E-Verify program will be strengthened and re-implemented with enforceable teeth.  Violators will be prosecuted and the applicants encouraged to engage in a newly formulated alien repatriation program.  The goal will be either the eventual assimilation of illegal immigrants through a lawful process or self-deportation for those preferring to leave the US. 

H-1A and H-1B programs will be revisited and emphasis on domestic hiring prioritized.

NATO Terrorism Emphasis:

Trump has spoken several times on the need to review the NATO charter, financial contributions by member nations, and its effectiveness in today’s world.  NATO will have to be changed to add an emphasis on counter-terrorism.  Changes to NATO that involve control over European immigration will be met with resistance from the European Union who favors a more open border policy.  The US may be faced with a decision as to whether it can actually help defend EU nations if they do not tighten immigration policy and internal security.  NATO is primarily structured to deal with external threats.  Terror threats are internal threats that require a much different approach.  A Trump administration will not be all that supportive of an open border policy that could very well be counter-productive to NATO security agreements. 

If the EU NATO members and other members do not tighten their border and immigration controls, Trump will place VISA vetting requirements for anyone traveling to the US from nations who do not tighten their own borders.  Without increased scrutiny of those travelers, the US would have a gaping hole in its own security protocol and one that terrorists would exploit.

Conclusion:

A Trump administration would usher in a totally different war on terror approach. 

Obama basically has adopted a hands off approach to fighting the war on terror and has exacerbated our vulnerabilities by opening our borders and not enforcing any immigration laws.  He is doing virtually nothing to physically combat ISIS and others overseas leaving them to metastasize leaving the world less secure. 

Bush basically combined fighting terror with nation building that ended up leaving our security in about the same spot, for different reasons, as Obama. 

Trump would execute a war in terror by eliminating the core of the terror organizations, tightening our own physical security, strengthening international counter-terrorism capabilities, with or without NATO, and Not engage in nation building.  Trump’s solution would empower other Islamic nations to help rebuild impacted nations and regions but not directly intervene in national governance.

If Hillary is elected and Trump is not, she will continue Obama’s policies with a little bit of Bush’s nation building thrown in. 

If that happens, by a Gun, Move to the Mountains, and Pray!

(1)  To consolidate Trump’s terrorism/ISIS foreign policy, I have combined elements  of his speeches, campaign rallies, and interviews.  Often Trump assumes that the audience understands the details behind his “One-Liners” but often the press, his opponents, and RINOs attribute erroneous conclusions to his comments.

Obama-248 Days Left Of the Destruction of Our Republic

50% of Those Polled Approve of Obama’s Performance!

Really!

2016 Presidential Campaign Allowing Obama to

“Fundamentally Transform America”

While We Are Not Watching

King Obama

The Buzz today is about discussing Donald Trump’s love life from 30 years ago!  Really?  

Obama and the Main Stream Media (MSM)  will do and say anything to distract us from seeing that Obama has literally redefined America.  We, including our elected Republican officials in Washington DC, have done nothing to stop him.  Here are a few of Obama’s “Accomplishments“:

  • Completely weakened the financial fabric of this nation by driving up our debt to $20 Trillion.

  • Exploding our welfare assistance to illegal and legal immigrants and eliminating our borders entirely.

  • Emasculated the breadth of our banking system and consolidated our financial institutions to the detriment of the consumers.

  • Ruining higher education by taking over Student Loans and driving the cost of higher education through to roof enslaving our students through a life of debt owed to the almighty government.

  • Gave Iran a clear path to create and possess nuclear weapons and provided $150 Billion to help finance their creation and subsidize Iranian terror networks.

  • Giving Iraq and Syria to Iran with his hands off policy in Syria and his allowing Iraq to fall into political and military disarray through his hands off policy with ISIS. 

  • Giving Iran a clear path to complete its missile arsenal with which to deliver its soon to be completed nuclear weapons.

  • Allowed Iran to intimidate our navy by capturing and detaining one of our ships in international waters.

  • Destabilized Libya by taking out Qadhafi and destroying its governing infrastructure leaving it for ISIS and other nefarious organizations to pick at its carcass. 

  • Allowing China to “annex” the South China Sea without resistance nor repercussions.

  • Allowing Russia to intimidate our military with low flyovers and close encounters with our ships and aircraft.

  • Giving North Korea a clear path to complete their nuclear arms and ballistic missile programs.

  • Allowing Central and Eastern Africa to become a cesspool of terror and unrest.

  • Transformed cultural norms such as traditional marriage by his advocacy of same-sex marriage giving SCOTUS a clear path to overturn DOMA and a millennia of cultural tradition.

  • Literally destroying the American Health Care System with Obamacare.

  • Using Obamacare to destroy the Freedom of Religion to force religious institutions to conform with Obamacare mandates regardless of their long-held religious objections to abortions, birth control, and sex reassignment procedures.  Euthanasia next?

  • Using Title IX and Title VII, redefined bathroom, changing room and shower access to be wide open to all genders.

  • Setting the stage to force the private sector to allow transgender individuals to use restrooms, changing rooms or other typically gender restricted areas as they wish ignoring the risk to the innocent by pedophiles and sex offenders.

  • Undermining our civil order by making continuous disparaging remarks about our police and other law enforcement officials and using the DOJ to interfere with local law enforcement.

  • Inciting riotous behavior by siding with anarchistic organizations such as Occupy and Black Lives Matter.

  • Creating open borders and open immigration policies that are destroying the cultural fabric of our nation.

Still Think Obama Does Not Know What He Is Doing!

Unfortunately, the list is virtually endless as everyday more and more of our liberties are lost, our economic prosperity driven into the oblivion of debt, and our moral fiber destroyed.  Race relations, due to Obama’s constant race baiting tactics, are at their worst since the 1960’s.  The plight of Blacks and other inner city minorities is dismal with Black on Black crime escalating exponentially.   Obama blames law enforcement and the bias of the justice system!

So, when you hear or see the MSM focusing on silly issues like Trump’s love life when he was single, stop and ask, “What is the Administration and the Media trying to Hide”?  The MSM has become one big reality show meant to distract and mislead the public.  Unfortunately, we are too easily duped into thinking that what we are going through is “NORMAL”!  It isn’t! 

This Election is Vital to this Nation’s Survival. 

While some on the right are chanting the #nevertrump mantra, Obama and the left keep on destroying what is left of this republic.  Hillary, if she is able to run, or for that matter any Democrat (or socialist) candidate for president, will continue to take this nation down the path of progressive annihilation.

ISIS and Paris; Where Do We Go From Here?

isis-muslim-drudge-attack-paris

 

Following the massacre in Paris on Friday the 13th, the French President Hollande ordered the bombing of Raqqa, the chosen capital for ISIS.  The French dropped 20 bombs wiping out an ISIS training facility and a munitions depot.  This was the largest strike by the French against ISIS to date.  Godspeed to the French!  Three questions ae hanging in the air following these two events.

  1. Will Hollande ask NATO to invoke Article 5 binding that would bin NATO members to join the French in their “war” with ISIS?
  2. Would Obama live up to our commitment to our NATO partners?
  3. Will Obama finally admit that France was attacked by a Radical Islamic Caliphate or continue to ignore the “Islamic” element of these attacks?

#1:  It would be nice if the US would take the lead on #1 and call the NATO nations together and lead the defense of France against ISIS.  Not holding my Breath. Hollande is undoubtedly considering his options under the NATO Charter but if the Whitehouse throws cold water on the idea via back channels, Hollande may not even pursue this option.

#2:  Obama has all but emasculated our commitments to our Eastern European NATO Partners including the missile defense system for Poland etc..  Allowing NATO to flex its muscles at this point is antithetical to Obama’s “détente” with Russia who sees NATO as a direct threat.  Further, backing NATO into attaching ISIS in Syria is also antithetical to his “hands off” policies regarding Syria.

#3:  In order for Obama to allow NATO to join the fight against ISIS he would have to be comfortable with giving credibility to statements by both the British and the French condemning the attacks in Paris by Radical Islamist elements.  Obama to date cannot seem to put the word Islamist into his explanations of terror events perpetrated by those who profess to be waging war on the West in the name of Islam.  Waiting for Obama to back our NATO partners against the Islamic State will be an exercise in futility.

The key question for the average American is what happens if Obama does not step up to help France and perhaps NATO to defeat ISIS?  In the remaining 15 months or so of Obama’s term the entire Middle East, and much of Europe, could be lost to ISIS.  Europe could be decimated internally by the some of the very “refugees” that they allowed to settle in their member countries. 

I keep hearing candidates and politicians saying that the Sunni nations have to step up and fight back against ISIS.  ISIS is a Sunni aberration!  They were born out of a backlash of the establishment of a Shi’a government in Iraq following our abdication of transitioning of Iraq.  ISIS is also including Syria in their crosshairs as Syria has traditionally backed Iran which is 95% Shi’a.  So, assuming that Sunni and Shi’a are not exactly kissing cousins, to think that Sunni nations are going to be keen on attacking a Sunni movement is doubtful.  Each of the Sunni countries have to content with their own Sunni populations.  When I was in Egypt in 2007, one of the questions I was asked by multiple Egyptians was why we took out Saddam Hussein, who was Sunni, and allow the Shi’a to gain ground in the Middle East.

By not dealing with the transition in Iraq and by not dealing with the Syrian civil war, we are now in an untenable position.  The Russians are in Syria to back President Assad.  They will wipe out the dissidents fighting to depose Assad first.  Then, and only then, maybe join against ISIS.  How do we control the air space over Syria with Russia flying missions against people who we pay lip service to as our “allies”.  To reiterate, Putin is pathological in his opposition to NATO since the cold war and would not be very cooperative if NATO attacked ISIS in Syria.  Assume we go in and wipe out ISIS in Syria and in Iraq.  What is left?  Syria is still a Russian puppet with Assad probably still in power and who knows what would be left in Iraq.  Iraq could become a puppet of Iran, a Shi’a nation.  What would Egypt and the rest of the Sunni nations who have been our allies feel about this?

I guess one can hope that Bernie Sanders is right and global warming is the catalyst for the rise of ISIS.  Maybe when the deserts of Syria and Iraq go too hot for anyone to inhabit, ISIS will just go away and join Al Gore in Sweden!  Life will be interesting, if nothing else, in the next 15 months…

 

Egypt-How Inept Can We Get?

Egypt Flag     There is very little common sense coming out of Washington DC regarding the crisis in Egypt and what our role, and indeed the role of all   civilized societies, should be regarding Egypt.  The Obama Administration set up the downfall of Mubarak and the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood to political power.  Obama is still trying to force Muslim Extremism onto Egyptian society by pressuring the Military in Egypt to temper their response to the Muslim Brotherhood.  Then you have our inept Republican hacks who can’t stay away from a TV camera or a Sunday Talk Show screaming that we have to pull all aid our of Egypt.  Most of the Democratic hacks can’t figure out who to back or what to do!

How About We Do the Right Thing for Egypt, and the Right Thing for the US?  (For a Change)

Egypt Today!

  1. Muslim Brotherhood = Terrorism:  The Muslim Brotherhood is an International, Radical Islamic group hell-bent on establishing Islamic Republics, NOT DEMOCRACIES AS OBAMA KEEPS SAYING, all over the Middle East and the World.
  2. International Muslim Brotherhood:  The Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated all western countries through the spread of the MUSLIM STUDENT ASSOCIATIONS, that are student fronts for the radicalization of whatever country they have infiltrated.
  3. Nature of Egyptians:  The Egyptian People themselves are NOT radical.  They are extremely POOR.  Egypt is the largest importer of grain in the world.
  4. Egyptian Military:  The Egyptian Military, by and large, are the people and the only “political” group who has the overall best interest of the Egyptian people.
  5. Egypt’s Poverty Problem:  The majority of the 83,000,000 plus Egyptians live on $2.00 per day without any prospects for improvement in spite of the industrious nature of the people.
  6. Egypt’s Stable Past:  Egypt has been one of the few stable, Western Friendly, nations in the Middle East and the only Arab nation with a treaty with Israel.
  7. Role of Tourism:  Tourism is one of the very few sources of Free Foreign Currency for Egypt and with the radicalization of the country via the Muslim Brotherhood tourism is at an all time low.

What the US and Civilized Nations Need to Do NOW!

  1. Stand Behind the Military:  Our President needs to stand before the world and say that we are standing behind the Military and will work with them to establish a non military government as soon as the country has been stabilized politically and economically,  No artificial timelines nor demands for new constitutions.  Egypt needs some breathing room
  2. Economic Vs Military Aid:  Western Civilization, especially the US, needs to create an Aid package that is economic and focuses on providing the Military Government with food to feed the Egyptians then coupled with a solid US-AID program to develop the hundreds of thousands of acres along the Nile and south and west of the Aswan Dam for food production to PERMANENTLY lift the Egyptians out of poverty.  Egypt has that rare combination of land and water that can be developed for the good of the entire region.  Egypt has been historically an agrarian based culture and we need to help them re-establish those roots.
  3. War on Terror Based Military Aid:  Western Civilization needs to create a Military Aid program that focuses on providing less of outward focused military to a military that can protect Egypt from internal terrorism, including that from the Muslim Brotherhood.
  4. Give the Military and the People Time:  We need to make sure the military has sufficient time to sit down with legitimate factions inside of Egypt, excluding the Muslim Brotherhood, and formulate their own government structure which may or may not be our idea of a democracy.  We forced the military before, after the hasty ousting of Mubarak, to have elections and put on a pretense that Egypt was back to normal.  What hypocrites we are.  It took the US over 12 years to come up with our new government after declaring our independence!  Egypt needs time for the internal political groups to coalesce and form.

We need to stop the political rhetoric in our country regarding what the Egyptian People need to do.  They are intelligent and they can and will figure it out if the US, the UN and Europe stays out of their internal “birthing” of a new society.  Micky and Minnie Mouse, McCain and Graham, need to stay off of the talk shows and stay HOME!  Not a one of these politicians have ever lived among the Egyptian people or been over to one the homes of a middle class Egyptian and attended one of their kid’s birthday parties.  I have.  We need to do our part to make sure Iran and the Palestinians do not export their Islamic radicals to Egypt to further exacerbate the internal problems facing Egypt today.

Alas, I do not believe Obama nor our Republican or Democrat politicians will do the right thing in the end.  Obama is bent on establishing radical Islamic regimes throughout the Middle East and heaven only know what the rest of these politicians are trying to do.

Why do African-Americans Vote to Defeat Themselves?

black on black violenceBlack Activist View:

Black activists are quick to whip up Black emotions over Trayvon Martin but totally ignore the inner city deaths of hundreds of other Black youths in cities like Chicago and Oakland.  Black activist are quick to attack any seemingly “white” opposition to Obama while not asking Obama why Black unemployment in all age groups exceeds every other major ethnic group?  Black activists are quick to back Public Sector Unions such as the teacher’s unions who in turn fight against innovation in education through the use of school vouchers, more charter schools, and making educators, administrators and teachers, responsible for TEACHING Black children.  Black activists were quick to back welfare and welfare rules that excluded fathers of color from being part of the family and promoted out-of-wedlock births by Black teenagers in order to secure a revenue stream via welfare before they turned 18.  Why do Black activist support immigration amnesty when the flood of illegal aliens only serves to take more jobs away from American Black workers?

  • The #1 question then is why do Black Voters continue to vote in leftist, mainly white, progressives who perpetuate the economic slavery and illiteracy in the Black Communities?  These are the same white progressives, the same Democrat Party, who fought against Lincoln and the Republican Party who were trying to end slavery.  These are the same white progressives who used to don white robes and wear pointed hats, burn crosses and persecute Blacks throughout the South. 

The Other View:

White Conservatives wholeheartedly embrace the following policies that would lift all minorities out of poverty and allow them to compete in today’s world.  The “Black Leadership”, Obama, Sharpton, and Jackson are diametrically opposed to these same policies…

  1. School Vouchers:  Voucher programs are designed to provide an alternative to our failed public education system and especially give those in the inner cities a way UP out of a life time sentence of literacy.  This is NOT a program for whites!  This is designed to give all who have been born into poverty, inner city drug cultures, and single or non-existent parents.
    1. Detroit:  2011 statistics from The National Institute for Literacy estimated that 47% of the adult population of Detroit was Illiterate.  Don’t let the teacher’s unions blame funding.  Detroit Spent over $15,000 per student in 2011 compared to a national average of $10,000.  So, by spending 50% more, the city generated an illiteracy rate of almost 50%!  YOU DESERVE BETTER.
    2. Chicago:  This once stellar city has also turned its back on the Black neighborhoods and school systems driving a literary rate of only 63 percent. This means that 37 percent of the population are not literate or cannot read/write. The nation has a literacy rate of 99.0 percent.  Now, Mayor Rahm just closed 100 schools in Chicago, guess where most of the schools were?  Black Children now have to walk further, through gang ridden streets, to try to get an education.  YOU DESERVE BETTER.
  2. Blind Allegiance to Teacher’s Unions:  The black leadership, including Obama, Sharpton and Jackson and others stand behind the failed Teacher’s Unions to protect their own political contributions and the African-American community stands by these leaders.  Here is the cycle.  “Black Leaders” support Teacher’s Unions;  Teacher’s Unions collect dues from teachers;  Teacher’s Unions give their Money to the “Black Leaders”!  Meanwhile you are denied access to School Vouchers because that would hurt the Teacher’s Unions and Your “Black Leadership”.
  3. Black Genocide:  The left, aided and abetted by Obama-Jackson-Sharpton (OJS) et al., promote wholesale abortion in the Black Communities.  Non-Hispanic Blacks make up 12% of the US population but account for 1/3 of the abortions in the US.  That is three times their population percentage.  This is certainly akin to Legal Black Genocide by the very persons who are self proclaimed “Leaders” of the Black Community.  This culture of death and lowered value for Black Life leads into the Black on Black Violence issues…
  4. Black Murder Rate:  The Trayvon Martin case was turned into a “White on Black” violence and an alleged showcase of how Whites are racist by Obama-Jackson-Sharpton (OJS) et al.  Facts of the shooting, the hyper vigilant drive by the State to bend over backward to prosecute Zimmerman, the eventual jury verdict did nothing to offset the racial views of the outcome of the trial.  All the while, WHITE CONSERVATIVES were clamoring for a much wider discussion, “Why are Black Children and Youth being slaughtered in American streets, especially Chicago!”  Even Van Jones, not exactly a lover of White Conservatives, said,”
    “Conservatives have weighed in; they said they are very concerned about the killings in Chicago and in other urban environments.”  Further he stated, ”

    “There may be a Jack Kemp silent majority of conservatives that are heartbroken about the killings.”  the OJS group is blaming Gun Control, White Racism, and even trying to stretch the “Stand Your Ground” Laws, supported by Obama before for Illinois, as the reason for Black Violence in Chicago and elsewhere.

    The truth is that there is Racism aimed at the Black Community.  Unfortunately it is by Liberal Politicians and the OJS group and their ilk.  Who benefits by keeping the Black Community down?  Not the White Conservatives.  Who gets the dollars from unions that protect failing school systems and teachers?  The Left and the Democrat Party.

    This year is the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I have a Dream” speech.  Maybe it is time we start living that dream…Remembering August 28, 1963
