Jade Helm map 002
Jade Helm map, notice it lists Texas and Utah as “Hostile” states

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and Karl Denninger at Market-Ticker.org.

jade helm exercises 001Wal Mart closures, expanded and highly visible military presence in cities all across the country, train after train full of military equipment, all manner of military choppers and planes seen conducting simulations over our cities; what does all this add up to?

Some say nothing more than ordinary military preparedness.

Some say it is our government preparing for total martial law.

Who knows? But this excellent article sheds some light and asks some very basic, logical questions that, so far, the military or our government is not answering.


 

From the NY Times:

DALLAS — The questions being raised by right-wing bloggers and conservative commentators about a Pentagon training exercise called Jade Helm 15 traverse the outer edges of political paranoia.

It does?

The eight-week exercise starting in July and planned for locations in Texas, New Mexico, California and other Southwestern states, they say, is part of a secret plan to impose martial law, take away people’s guns, arrest political undesirables, launch an Obama-led hostile takeover of red-state Texas, or do some combination thereof.

Is it?  Or is it training for that highly unlikely but possible scenario?

Nobody doubts that the military needs to train in the sort of environment they may need to operate and for any reasonably-foreseeablejade helm exercises 002 eventuality.  That’s expected and the usual practice, and there is a growing use of our military in urban, suburban and rural areas of the world (not in the United States) that would benefit from such an exercise.

So it seems that this is a rather ordinary thing, and thus the Texas (and some other people’s) reaction is one of conspiracy nuts.

Right?

Let’s say I take that at purely face value, which I am inclined to, particularly reading the NY Times article given the slant they put on it and the accusations made about Texans.

Now please explain, if this is a training exercise for overseas readiness, as the NY Times has claimed, why is it that the DEA and FBI are involved in any way with this exercise, including in providing interrogation services —because they allegedly are.

Jade Helm is a challenging eight week exercise. Truly, in the Martin and Howard County area we’re only going to be here for about five-to-five and half weeks. The eight weeks comes in where there is the preparation and planning that happens back in Florida and in the Mississippi area. The exercise is a joint military and inter-agency activity. What this means is that we have units from every military service participating in the exercise with us. And we also have some of our inter-agency partners, such as the FBI and the DEA, and some of the other agencies assisting us and working with us in the exercise.

jade helm exercises 003Neither of those agencies have an overseas operational role and in fact they’re both prohibited by law from operating outside the borders of the United States.  Therefore I would like the NY Times to explain to this ordinary guy why the DEA and FBI would be involved in any fashion with such an exercise if the intended operational use of such training is overseas and why the overseas-operable agencies such as the CIA or our FBI and DEA counterparts in other nations where such actions might take place are not invited to participate instead in place of our national LEOs, since integration with them in any such actual deployment would be of value both to our military and those foreign counterparts.

So, what can one take from all this?  Well, the obvious: The military probably is war-gaming the possibility of civil insurrection, and if that was to occur Posse Comitatus (which is current law and prevents the Military from being used for such a purpose inside the US) would likely be repealed by Congress and The President in about 15 minutes.

In other words you’re not a “conspiracy nut” if what you believe someone is doing is in fact what they’re doing!

So over to you, NY Times, for slandering people that drew a completely-reasonable conclusion from available public information, never mind their perfectly-rational decision that they’re going to use the opportunity to gather information through observation as well.  After all that’s what an exercise is for, right?  It’s all about running through scenarios that are unlikely, but possible, something the military does all the time and is a perfectly-valid part of their remit.

The same holds true for ordinary citizens and State governments.

Ex-CIA Employee Admits President Obama Is A “Radical Islamic” Enemy Of America

Hat/Tip to Pamela Geller at dcclothesline.com.

Christianity doesn’t have the equivalent of “jihad.” Neither does any other major world religion, except for Islam – the supposedly peaceful religion.

Radical” is such a ridiculous adjective. It is pure Islam, authentic Islam — there is nothing radical or un-Islamic about jihad.

I know the Left loves to attack anyone who says that Obama isn’t a Christian, but consider this:

Obama’s father was a Muslim, which de facto makes him a Muslim, and he is considered Muslim in the Muslim world. Take, for example, Meriam Ibrahim. Her mother was Christian and raised her a Christian. She married a Christian, lives in America and has Christian children. But when she returned to Sudan to visit family, she was arrested for “apostasy” — in other words, for leaving Islam. She was nine months pregnant and forced to give birth with her legs shackled, leaving her baby deformed. This is Islamic law. She is considered a Muslim even though she has never been a Muslim, because her father was a Muslim.

Obama, on the other hand, was raised a Muslim, and went to Islamic school in an Islamic country (Indonesia) from the ages of six to eleven. He was tops in his quran class.
Obama was “previously quite religious in Islam.”

Instead of beheading people, or murdering innocents outright, Obama lets his foreign policy reflect his jihad.

He is pro-jihad and it is clear in his foreign policy.

There’s a reason he attacks and punishes Israel while allowing the Islamic State to growand conquer.

And here is an ex-CIA counterintel specialist speaking out about President Obama and his foreign policy.

Today, a former CIA agent bluntly told the newspaper, World Net Daily, that America has switched sides in the war on terror under President Obama. Clare Lopez was willing to say what a few members of Congress have said in private, but declined to say on-the-record.

Clare M. Lopez is the Vice President for Research and Analysis at the Center for Security Policy and a Senior Fellow at The Clarion Project, the London Center for Policy Research, and the Canadian Meighen Institute. Since 2013, she has served as a member of the Citizens Commission on Benghazi. Also Vice President of the Intelligence Summit, she formerly was a career operations officer with the Central Intelligence Agency, a professor at the Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Studies, Executive Director of the Iran Policy Committee from 2005-2006, and has served as a consultant, intelligence analyst, and researcher for a variety of defense firms. She was named a Lincoln Fellow at the Claremont Institute in 2011.

Lopez said the global war on terror had been an effort to “stay free ofShariah,” or repressive Islamic law, until the Obama administration began siding with such jihadist groups as the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates. Lopez believes that the Muslim Brotherhood has thoroughly infiltrated the Obama administration and other branches of the federal government. One of the most outrageous of those appointments is Mohamed Elibiary, a senior member of the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council. According to a report by the Center for Security Policy, Elibiary supports brokering a U.S. partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group. Two months ago, a firestorm erupted online after Elibiary tweeted that a “Caliphate” is inevitable and compared it to the European Union.

 

Ms. Lopez sees right through Obama, so maybe he is transparent, after all. She revealed that his goals align with the same goals of the late Osama Bin Laden.

Ms. Lopez also believes Obama had essentially the same goals in the Mideast as the late Osama bin Laden: “to remove American power and influence, including military forces, from Islamic lands.” The former CIA operative’s perspective affects her prescription for what the U.S. should do about the terror army ISIS, as she called for caution and restraint.

She advises against knee-jerk diplomacy and military action against ISIS until we know what side of the struggle our government is on.

Lopez believes the U.S. should have an overall strategy in place before fully re-engaging in the Mideast militarily. Any military action would be further complicated, she told WND, if it were not clear which side the U.S. is on, either in the short term or in the overall war on terror.

And she also questions public statements made by not only President Obama, but also by top members in his administration.

Lopez felt it was impossible to understand why the president and some of his top appointees, such as CIA Director John Brennan, who is believed to be a Muslim convert, “consistently seem to apologize for Islam, even in the face of such atrocities as the Foley beheading,” adding, they “take pains to assure the world they don’t think IS, (or the Islamic State, also called ISIS) or whichever perpetrator it was, has anything to do with Islam. How can they possibly believe that genuinely when everything these jihadis do tracks directly to the literal text of Quran, hadiths and Shariah?”

“In any case, and for whatever motivations, there is no doubt this administration switched sides in what used to be called the Global War on Terror,” she said.

CIA “Torture” Report: Bush Was Kept In The Dark For Years…

Share

Bushisrael

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers.

The sad fact is that this report is going to put our HUMINT agents in harm’s way around the world. Obama’s Administration has consistently worked against the men and women who work behind the scenes to keep America safe, and this is just another in a long series of nails in the coffin of US security.

Let us hope that the next president can undo all this damage.

The report itself details that White House officials seemed to try and insulate President George W. Bush from the specifics of the enhanced interrogation program.

Didn’t hear the full details until 2006.

Via Bloomberg Views:

President George W. Bush was never briefed by the Central Intelligence Agency on the details of harsh interrogation techniques and secret detention of terror suspects for the first four years of its controversial program, and when he did find out the details, he was “uncomfortable” with some of the practices, according to a long-awaited report by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

The 500-page declassified executive summary of the majority staff’s 6,700-page investigation into CIA rendition, detention and interrogation practices after Sept. 11 states that despite agency efforts to keep the Bush administration informed about the program, top White House officials repeatedly resisted having the CIA brief cabinet-level figures about the details, and CIA officials were not permitted to brief Bush directly until mid-2006, more than four years after the president signed a broad executive order authorizing the program, according to Senate Democratic aides who briefed reporters ahead of today’s release.

When Bush finally heard the details of the harsh interrogation techniques that were used against CIA detainees, he was “uncomfortable” with some of them and expressed dismay that some detainees were required to remain in stress positions for long amounts of time, to the point that they had no choice but to soil themselves, the aides said.

Based on CIA’s internal correspondence, the committee’s investigation will also state that CIA Directors George Tenet and Porter Goss admitted they had never briefed Bush directly on the techniques, despite that in 2004, the CIA Inspector General recommended they do so:

According to CIA records, no CIA officer, up to and including CIA Directors George Tenet and Porter Goss, briefed the president on the specific CIA enhanced interrogation techniques before April 2006. By that time, 38 of the 39 detainees identified as having been subjected to the CIA’s enhanced interrogation techniques had already been subjected to the techniques.The CIA did not inform the president or vice president of the location of CIA detention facilities other than Country.

President Obama Spends More Hours on Golf Course Than in Daily Intel Briefings

Share

obama shush

Hat/Tip to Newsmax and The Daily Caller.

President Obama is the king of having it both ways. When it came to the death of Bin Laden, he said this, “Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation…”

Then along comes a group called ISIS, and Obama says this, “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Obama said, resorting to an uncharacteristically flip analogy. “I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.

That was in January of this year, and then just 7 short months, nearly to the day, President Obama said this when being called on calling ISIS the JV team, “Well I think, our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.”

So this begs the question, if Obama didn’t know the full extent of the danger posed by ISIS, was it because Jim Clapper is incompetent or was it because Obama rarely attends his Daily Intel briefings?

In the fallout over President Barack Obama blaming the intelligence community for the rise of the Islamic State, a new report has surfaced showing that he attended less than half of his daily intel briefings.

The Government Accountability Institute, an investigative research organization, said the president went to only 42.1 percent of his intelligence meetings, known as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB, in the 2,079 days of his presidency through Monday, according to Breitbart.

The GAI report also revealed during his first term he attended 42.4 percent of the briefings, while Obama has even reduced that number in his second term, with just a 41.3 percent attendance record.

Now remember, Obama always takes credit, but never blame.

During an interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday, the president claimed that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had failed to warn the Obama administration that the Islamic State terror group, also known as ISIS, was gaining a strong foothold in Iraq and Syria.

“I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” he said.

One can only wonder what his answer would be if someone in the MSM asked him why he ditches so many Daily Intel briefings, because it is being reported that the PDBs (Presidential Daily Briefings) included ISIS reports as far back as 2012, with detailed intel beginning 8 months ago.

The Daily Beast’s Eli Lake alleged on Monday that as long as eight months ago Obama’s senior intelligence officials had alerted the White House that ISIS was growing in power while attempting to create a caliphate in Iraq and Syria.

“In the beginning of 2014, ISIS fighters had defeated Iraqi forces in Fallujah, leading much of the U.S. intelligence community to assess they would try to take more of Iraq,” wrote Lake, adding that members of the Defense department were “flabbergasted” by Obama’s statement.

“Either the president doesn’t read the intelligence he’s getting or he’s (lying),” a former senior Pentagon official who knew of the threat posed by Sunni extremists told the Beast.

Breitbart noted that following his controversial TV comments Obama has been accused by people in the intelligence community of lacking interest in “live” PDBs, which allow the president to ask follow-up questions, demand further information and challenge intel suppositions.

Meanwhile, an Obama national security staffer told the Daily Mail that the PDBs have included threat assessment on ISIS since 2012.

Okay, so if he isn’t spending time on the PDBs, then what DOES he do with his time?

U.S. President Obama reacts after missing putt on the first green at golf course on Martha's VineyardPresident Barack Obama has spent more time golfing than he has spent listening to daily intelligence briefings.

The Daily Caller has calculated that he’s spent almost 700 hours in 875 “Presidential Daily Briefings” since 2009.

But he’s also spent roughly 800 hours on almost 200 golf trips since his first inauguration.

Obama’s golf trips typically last four and half hours, including one hour on the road. The longest trip took about six hours, according to regular reports from the media pool that follows the president on trips outside the White House.

In contrast, President George W. Bush largely gave up golfing during the Iraq campaign, from 2003 to 2008.

The daily briefing calculations are based on a new report by the Florida-based Government Accountability Institute, which reported Sept. 30 that Obama has attended 875 Presidential Daily Briefings over the course of his presidency.

5,000 Covert ‘Boots on Ground’ in Syria by Year’s End

Share

Former CIA Director, Gen. Michael Hayden

Hat/Tip to Greg Richter at Newsmax.

Even though we’re not going to put boots on the ground in Syria, we’re, uh, well – we’re gonna have boots on the ground in Syria.

Yeah, the most transparent administration on earth strikes again…

Despite pledges from the White House that no American ground troops will be sent to fight the Islamic State (ISIS), Gen. Michael Hayden, former head of the CIA and NSA, thinks that up to 5,000 Americans will be on the ground by the end of the year.

“It might be through covert action rather than more overt activity,” Hayden said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Hayden said those won’t be regular combat troops, but intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, logistics, advice, command and control assistance and tactical air control parties. He said that even if America is successful, it can expect a three- to five-year battle.

And while President Barack Obama promised in a speech on Wednesday that the United States would be relying on Syrian and Iraq ground troops, Hayden said there is a long way to go toward training Syrian rebels, known as the Free Syrian Army.

Obama referred to FSA members just months ago as pharmacists and doctors who have taken up arms more than an adequately trained army. They will need “an awful lot of help” to become the force the United States now says it expects them to be, Hayden said.

“We’ve turned on the dime as far as our expectation for them,” he said.

Gen. Hayden also believes that it will take more than airstrikes and drone attacks to stop ISIS.

Hayden says he has spent 39 years as an airman and that air attacks will “punish the Islamic State,” but he doesn’t believe air power alone can defeat ISIS.

“The reliance on air power has all of the attraction of casual sex: It seems to offer gratification but with very little commitment,” he told U.S. News & World Report on Thursday.

Hayden said that Obama’s commitment to air power alone might have made Americans feel comfortable, but it also made ISIS feel comfortable. And, he said, it made our allies uncomfortable.

“When you make air power the centerpiece of what you’re going to do, people don’t doubt your strength, they doubt your intention, they doubt your will,” he said. “Are you all in this or not?”

Greta Goes “On The Record” About Obama’s Foreign Intelligence Failings

Greta Van Sustern is a career journalist and true to the best sense of the word, she sees things right down the middle. I don’t know what her politics are, and I don’t care because she reports the news the old fashioned way. She calls it like she sees it and never throws a slant on the news, either right or left.

She’s posted a video on her youtube page and I thought she raised some great points. In the video she discusses the beheading of the American citizen and Photojournalist, James Foley. She talks about the dangers of ISIS, the Islamic Extremists and the problems with our intelligence gathering capabilities.

Awesome video, and thank you, Greta.

ISIS to Offer Universal Healthcare

Share

Your female genital mutilation will be paid for!

ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, announced today that it will be introducing universal health care in areas under their control.

“The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria” began the statement “are pleased to announce that all Muslims will have access to free, universal healthcare.”

We do this because the prophet wants us to.  Under our caliphate, believers in the prophet can go to any hospital, office or goat-filled cave to have their medical needs met. This means that women will no longer have to worry that they will not be able to afford their female genital mutilation.  You will no longer have to live with the shame of being a wild, hip-thrusting woman.

The announcement that the heretofore feared Islamicists will take care of the health needs of those in its territory has modified their image dramatically.

“This is a game changer” said Secretary of State John Kerry.

This announcement shows that we have nothing to fear from ISIS.  They believe in the same things we do:  The rule of law, socialism and the right that every human being has to universal health care.  We welcome ISIS into the family of nations. These are people the United States can work with in the middle east peace process. Would that Israel would follow their lead.

Under the provisions in the Islamic Affordable Care Act (commonly known as “Behead the Infidel Care”) provinces captured by ISIS will set up health exchanges.  Muslims can then go online, or after the internet is banned, to their nearest hospital and sign up for healthcare, which is mandatory.  Those who do not sign up will be fined or taxed, depending on how one interprets the 10,000 page bill.

“We have to institute the Islamic Affordable Care Act so we can see what’s in it” said the head of ISIS’s legislature.

The Democratic-controlled senate praised today’s announcement.

“ISIS has proved itself to be a tolerant, multicultural, Democratic movement” declared majority leader Harry Reid.

We hope to establish diplomatic relations with them soon, assuming we can overcome Republican obstructionism. By this one act ISIS has proved itself to understand democracy more than my Republican colleagues. I say this to shame those on the other side of the aisle. Hopefully they will look within themselves and see the error of their ways.  And as far as the female genital mutilation thing, at a certain point you have to ask yourself if you’ve thrust your hips enough.

Israeli reaction was typically what you’d expect from Zionists.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that their policy towards ISIS will not change.

“They are still our enemy.”

The CIA however, was circumspect when discussing ISIS.

“Look none of us speak Arabic” said CIA director John Brennan.

Normally we don’t pay attention to the middle east.  We are too busy spying on Teabaggers.  We do have one translator and he’s still working on the document.  It may be about universal health care or it may be about pizza.  We don’t know yet. Personally I hope it’s about pizza.  I’m starving.

From Los Angeles where he was attending a fund raiser, President Obama lauded the institution of universal health care by ISIS.

“This is what the face of tolerance looks like.”

The Arrogance of Some High Profile Lawbreakers

Share

 photo notsoblindjustice_zpsce9e185a.jpg

The idea that we are all equal under the law is pure horse puckey. That shouldn’t be news to anyone who isn’t brain dead. Justice often goes to who can afford the best lawyer or who is more politically connected. No doubt the family of Mary Jo  Kopechne, for example, have some thoughts on the subject.

Most people in America are law-abiding. Even when they don’t like a particular law or even when that believe a law to be unjust, they will generally abide by the law anyway. For these law-abiding folks, it really rubs them raw to see how some high profile law breakers are so arrogant and in-yoyr-face about it. Let’s look at just a few examples.

The worst offender by far is our current President. He treats the constitution, the law of the land, as an advisory document at best. He refuses to enforce laws he doesn’t like, he ignores federal court orders against his actions, he rewrites laws without Congressional approval, and he uses Executive Orders to circumvent the separation of powers enshrined in the constitution. Then he has the arrogance to tell Congress: “If you don’t like it, sue me!” and he dares the Republicans to try to impeach him knowing that his sycophants in the Senate will have his back.

What about the NSA spying on everyone, including the politicians? They know what they are doing is unconstitutional. They don’t care! They hide behind the cloak of secrecy in the name of national security. “National security” is sadly a cover for a lot of sins. The CIA is guilty of the same.

Then there is the United States Congress. You know, the folks we send to Washington to represent us. The ones who write laws that we must abide by, but that they themselves are exempt from having to abide by. Well, our Congress critters also have a penchant for breaking the laws that even they are supposed to abide by. For example, Congress has been under investigation by the Security Exchange Comission (SEC) for quite a while and the case has ended up in federal court. Courtesy of the Wall Street Journal by way of Zero Hedge this is what the lawyers for the House of Representatives had to say to the judge:

The U.S. House of Representatives told a federal court Friday it should dismiss a lawsuit filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission because Congress is lawfully allowed to ignore requests to turn over records and testimony to the executive branch agency.

But, the lawyers for the House couldn’t stop at that. They wanted to get in the face of the judge and by proxy, in the face of the SEC by continuing with this:

“Rather than acknowledge the fool’s errand on which it has embarked, the SEC instead invites this court to join it by disregarding fundamental limitations on judicial authority,”

Yes! How dare the SEC and a Federal Court try to stop our congressmen from enriching themselves with the inside information to which they are privy. After all, Congress writes laws to control the riffraff and they are not riffraff, right?

Not all arrogant lawbreakers are part of our government. Consider the cause de jour: those folks who have taken up residence in the US against the laws of the US. The so-called “illegal immigrants: or “undocumented immigrants” or “asylum seekers” or “refugee seekers” or just plain “invaders” have become quite the “arrogant lawbreakers”. They have gone so far as to protest in front of the White House just yesterday. Via The Pirate’s Cove, we have this report from the Washington Times:

(Washington Times) Illegal immigrants plan to picket the White House Monday afternoon, calling on fellow immigrant-rights advocacy groups to refuse to meet with the Obama administration until President Obama specifically includes illegal immigrants in any future meetings.

“We are among the millions of people who will either benefit or be harmed by the decisions the President makes, and we are here to represent ourselves in any future negotiations,” said Rosi Carrasco, one of organizers, in a statement announcing the action.

Billing themselves “undocumented immigrant leaders,” the organizers said they will erect a picket line to symbolize their demand.

Were they afraid of being arrested by immigration officers? Obviously not. Were they aking or pleading for recognition of their plight? No! They were DEMANDING to be part of a meeting because… “We are among the millions of people who will either benefit or be harmed by the decisions the President makes, and we are here to represent ourselves in any future negotiations

Demanding???  The Pirate’s Cove author made a good analogy. He said: “This is like gang members demanding that they be allowed representation on parole boards and prison administration.”

George Orwell was right. Some pigs are more equal than others.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

Have You Considered a Career in the CIA?

Have you considered a career in the CIA?
Have you considered a career in the CIA?

As many young people have recently graduated college they may receive employment brochures in the mail.  As a public service to my readers I now present one of them:

Hello to all recently graduated college students.  

My name is John O. Brennan and I am the director of the Central Intelligence Agency.  Many of you are no doubt wondering what sort of career path do you want to take?  Is a career as a civil servant for me?  My major was puppetry and I minored in patriarchal oppression.  Does this qualify me for a career in the CIA?  I am 100,000 dollars in debt from my student loan.  Will a career in the CIA allow me to pay that off?

Rest assured the CIA is a glamorous, inclusive place to work.  Many of our employees have advanced degrees in puppetry, lesbian studies and patriarchal oppression.  You will fit right in.  And since you took out a government-sponsored student loan it is only appropriate that you get a job in the government.  Because, after all, the government is the only thing we all belong to.

As a CIA employee you will have the chance to visit exotic foreign locations such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.  Also, we are currently looking for a new ambassador to Libya.  Our last one was kinetically de-lived because of a spontaneous demonstration over a YouTube video that insulted the prophet.  Allah is great!

But what about benefits?  Rest assured the CIA has some of the best benefits currently available.  After 20 years in the employ of the CIA you will be eligible to retire.  With a new identity.  Privacy is very important to us.  Rest assured that we at the CIA take threats against our employees very seriously.  That’s why all retirees are entered into the CIA Employee Relocation Program.  Having spent a lifetime defending America from terrorist threats such as the teabaggers and the Constitution you will have gained plenty of enemies.  That’s why you will be receiving free plastic surgery to alter your appearance.

But what about dental?

At the CIA you will have no need to worry about teeth.  Because dental records can be used to identify an operative you will have all your teeth pulled out and replaced by microchips.

Maternity leave?

We at the CIA are sensitive to our employees personal needs.  However at the time we offer no maternity leave.  In fact we discourage our employees from having children.  Children lead to global warming.

Now as you may be aware, the CIA station Chief in Kabul was recently outed.  We regret this almost as much as we do global warming which is caused by humans. Humans using 100 watt light bulbs.  

If you happen to be accidentally outed, probably by a tea-bagging enemy of our President, your security and safety will be our top priority. Though really what difference does it make?

However all CIA operatives are given a stick.  A sharp stick.  You can use this sharp stick to fight off those who follow the Religion of Peace™ as you make a frantic dash to the border.

Do not get captured though. The United States does not negotiate with terrorists. Unless we are trying to gain the release of a private who may possibly be a follower of the prophet.

If  in the unlikely event your captors from the Religion of Peace™ inform you that you will be executed, die in the knowledge that your death is helping to stop global warming.

So consider a career in the CIA.  You won’t be sorry.  Unless you get outed, want children or want to keep your teeth.

Sincerely, 

John O. Brennan, Director, Central Intelligence Agency

I should apply.  I’ve already lost most of my teeth so I’d be a good fit.

Benghazi 9/11/12 @ 6:17 pm Susan Rice Given Tweet From Freelancer @JomanaCNN in Libya: Ansar al-Sharia Attacking Benghazi Compound

Share

I’m wading my way through the new documents on Benghazi released by Judicial Watch and found an shocking tweet by CNN freelancer Jomana Karadsheh. The tweet was forwarded to Ambassador Susan Rice on September 11, 2012 at 6:17 p.m. U.S. time, which would be 1 a.m. or 2 a.m. in Benghazi on September 12, 2012. The screen grab from the .pdf shows that the tweet is time-stamped “27m” meaning it was grabbed for embed 27 minutes after it was tweeted. At that time, the body of Ambassador Stevens was still missing. The significance: Rice directly received a heads-up, whether she believed it or not, that Ansar al-Sharia was attacking our compound before the attack was over, yet went on the Sunday news shows and blamed street rabble-rousers, upset about a little-seen anti-Islam video with no mention of Jomana Karadsheh’s information. Remember that it took U.S. officials three weeks to get to Benghazi to “investigate” the compound, while CNN had someone in inside the burned-out facility in only a couple of days. CNN left with Steven’s diary.

At the time, the sender of the email, Alex McPhillips, was connected to the United Nations. I can’t find an exact title for him, but in December 2010 he was the “Press Officer at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations.

If Susan Rice brought Ansar al-Sharia into the public eye as a possibility, I can’t find it, although we did hear the claim in news reports, but without someone in the White House, State Department or CIA lending credence to it, it was nothing more than a rumor.

Oddly, on January 10, 2014, the House Committee on Foreign Affairs reported that the U.S. State Department designated Ansar al-Sharia as a foreign terrorist organization and confirmed that the group was “involved” in the September 11, 2012 attacks that killed Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty — January 10, 2014!

Note: After the initial attack on the Benghazi Special Mission Compound, the State Department Operations Center alerted senior Department officials, other agencies, and the White House that Ansar al-Sharia had claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter for the attack.  On November 27, 2012, then-United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice stated that, in fact, the talking points provided by the intelligence community, which formed the basis for her public comments on the Sunday talk shows of September 11, 2012, were “incorrect in a key respect: there was no protest or demonstration in Benghazi.”

Read the full story here.

Just three months earlier, Ansar al-Sharia displayed a 200-pickup truck convoy in the town of Benghazi. Wikipedia quoted the Libya Herald saying residents were shocked at the weaponry displayed. I can’t link that for you as I’m not a subscriber. The group was also involved in several deadly incidents that summer.

What we didn’t know, or at least what I didn’t know, was that Susan Rice received a credible report saying Ansar al-Sharia was at the compound, and she received it before the attack was over.

If today, you think the Oval Office was not involved, and if you think there were no attempts to protect Obama’s unpresidential, unAmerican, sorry presidency, then you must bear the weight of the demise of this country on your shoulders along with others just like you.

Oklahoma Rejected Eric Holder: Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange Addresses OKC Policy Academy Swearing In

Share

Eric Holder’s ‘people’ cancelled his speech at the Oklahoma City Police Academy graduation class with little notice — in fact, close to no notice. The earliest reports I find are dated April 24th, the day of the swearing-in ceremony for Police Academy cadets. His ‘people’ gave no explanation other than “regrets” and “heartfelt congratulations,” via an email, and denied the cancellation came because of the large and angry protests planned against the U.S. Attorney General. Holder may have cancelled, but the real story is, Oklahoma rejected Eric Holder.

Many thanks to all those who began online protests over the lawless, lying, racist attorney general having the honor speak to our cadets on a great day of celebration.  Rally for America did a great job getting the news out. Then 2 Million Bikers to DC and 2 Million Bikers to DC Oklahoma took up the challenge. Special thanks to Belinda Bee at 2MB2DC for keeping the story front-and-center. I’d love to know how many phone, emails and faxes Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett and Police Chief Bill Citty received from very angry Oklahomans.

Attorney General Eric Holder canceled an appearance before the Oklahoma City Police Department’s graduating cadet class Thursday amid angry protests over his scheduled visit…

A Justice Department spokesman denied that the trip was canceled because of the possibility of a hostile reception. An early meeting at the Justice Department delayed Mr. Holder’s departure from Washington, causing him to miss the graduation ceremony, spokesman Brian Fallon said in an email.

“The attorney general had been looking forward to addressing the cadets, and regrets he cannot attend in person,” Mr. Fallon said. “He extends his heartfelt congratulations to the cadets and their families.”

But Mr. Holder’s scheduled visit to Oklahoma City drew the criticism of several conservative lawmakers who planned the protest in anticipation of his arrival, including Republican state Rep. Paul Wesselhoft, who has said he believes that Mr. Holder should be impeached…

“He’s not coming because he’s a chicken,” Mrs. Russell told the Red Dirt Report, a local news website. “And he doesn’t want to be recorded with people protesting against him with signs like mine.”

Vicki Miles LaGrange
Vicki Miles LaGrange

With little-to-no-notice, Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange stepped in for Holder. Miles-LaGrange is the Clinton nominated judge who shot down Oklahoma’s ban on Sharia Law and any foreign law
establishment in the state, siding with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CARI). In 2010, 70 percent of Oklahomans voted for the constitutional amendment. Miles-LaGrange is a native Oklahoman, studied at the University of Ghana, received her BA from Vassar and graduated Harvard Law. She has not spoken against the treatment of Muslim women anywhere on the globe, that I can find.

Miles-LaGrange also rejected the argument that the amendment could be salvaged by severing certain language that specifically mentioned Sharia law. That option would have retained less precise wording saying that Oklahoma courts “shall not look to the legal precepts of other nations or cultures.”

From former CIA Director James Woolsey’s remarks against adopting Shariah Law:

Woolsey told CNSNews.com that there have already been troubling court decisions in Europe, as well as one in New Jersey, in which courts have upheld violence against women as legal because the defendants adhered to Islamic law.

“There have been some awful cases in Germany and Italy — one in which a man’s right to severely beat his daughter was upheld by the Italian Supreme Court of Cassation,” Woolsey said. “(There were) two ugly ones in Germany where men’s rights to beat their daughters and wives were upheld by the judicial system.”…

But Woolsey, meanwhile, challenges the idea that the law unconstitutionally singles out Islamic law. He said Shariah is the only religious law that is currently being used to justify violence against women.

“If they (CAIR) can find an example of another religious doctrine that permits — indeed authorizes — the beating of women and little girls then one might want to listen to them,” he said. “I have not heard that the Confucians or the Anabaptists, or whoever, claim that a subset of their religious doctrines authorize such beatings.”

CIA Wanted Tamerlan Tsarnaev on Terrorist Watch List: Media Silent

Share

As the true nature of the Boston Marathon Bombing comes to light, the more incompetence is discovered.  We know that the Russians warned us as to the radicalization of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, but no action was taken. Now we see that the CIA continued to want Tsarnaev on the watch list…

The lying is profound, and mirrors the constantly changing narrative on the Saudi national who was first grilled in the Boston bombing. Now this:

CIA Wanted Boston Bombing Suspect Placed on Terror Watchlist Breitbart

The CIA directly asked the FBI to place Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the elder of the two suspected Boston Marathon bombers, on its counterterrorism watchlist handled by the National Counterterrorism Center. That request came after the Russian government asked the CIA to keep an eye on Tsarnaev. It also came a year after the FBI closed its initial inquiry into Tsarnaev based on Russian warnings.

The watchlist, known as the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment (TIDE), is actually a master watchlist that supplies information for a series of smaller watchlists, including the FBI’s central Terrorist Screening Database, and the infamous Transportation Security Administration no-fly list.

Despite the fact that Tsarnaev was added to the list, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano testified yesterday that Tsarnaev was not monitored when he returned from Russia in 2012. The FBI now says that the Russians were fine with the level of scrutiny placed on Tsarnaev by the US government. “They were satisfied,” an unnamed official told the Washington Post. “We had checked on their information.”

Step by step, it seems that incompetence kept the authorities from preventing this terrorist attack.  Of course, the MSM will continue cover for the Obama adminisration.  You won’t be seeing this story on any of the alphabet networks.

Live Feed for Rand Paul’s Filibuster

Share

Rand Paul is using a good old fashioned filibuster to delay the nomination of John Brennan for CIA Director.  His focus is drones and the Obama’s Administration assertion that the president can not only order the killing of Americans-not only abroad, but domestically as well.  Since the government has already declared his opposition as “potential terrorists.”  There are rather chilling implications for being a declared terrorist, potential or otherwise.

At any rate, here is the video, via Raw Story…

I will stickie this for the duration.

FBI Uncovers Consensual Relationship Between Adults

Share

Consensual relationships are our “thang.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, long known by its nickname “The Privacy Penetraters” has set the world of Washington DC afire with the discovery of the affair between CIA director David Petraeus and his biographer Paula Broadwell.

Speaking from Washington, FBI director Robert  Mueller told reporters that

The FBI prides itself on uncovering and destroying two things:  Organized crime and consensual relationships between adults.  But mainly consensual relationships between adults.  Oh hell who am I kidding.  We don’t touch organized crime.  Those guys are dangerous.  We are all civil servants making a civil servant’s salary.  Who wants to get killed over that?  So now we mainly monitor emails hoping to find sex stuff.

As is the FBI’s want, they were  monitoring CIA emails hoping to find evidence of sex.  That’s when they first uncovered the emails from Broadwell and the reference to “sex under a desk.

“At first we were confused as to the meaning” said Mueller.

Sex under a desk?  That’s a drink I have a happy hour.  In fact I asked one of the younger men here in the office if he’d like to have sex under a desk with me sometime and he kissed me and told me that I have given him the courage to come out of the closet. I mean, WTF?

Confused as to its meaning, The FBI brought in as a consultant an expert in the field:  former President Bill Clinton.

After reading the emails and the reference to “sex under a desk” Clinton immediately booked a flight to North Carolina, where Broadwell resides.

“He was out the door pretty fast” said Mueller.  “All he had was a plane ticket, flowers, condoms and a box of cigars.  We never heard from him again.”

Without Clinton’s help the FBI struggled to ascertain whether the phrase “sex under a desk” was in fact sex-related.  The Bureau finally decided it was sex-related after intercepting the following text exchange:

Petraeus:  I enjoyed having sex under a desk with you.

Broadwell:  I never knew sex under a desk could be so fun.

Petraeus:  We should do this every happy hour.

Bill Clinton:  Can I get in on the action?  I love sex under a desk and promise not to come in your mouth.

Petraeus:  What the hell? What’s he talking about?

Broadwell:   Excuse me this is a private conversation!

Clinton:  I got cigars!

The FBI then confronted Betraeus who was then forced to tender his resignation to President Obama.

“We’re still not 100 percent sure ’sex under a desk’ in fact refers to sexual relations” said Mueller.  “But I’ve learned to stop asking men in the office if they want to have sex under a desk with me.”

In a related note a message on the FBI’s website has asked Americans to “send us all their sex-related emails.  Please.  We’re very lonely.”

Bill Clinton could not be contacted in regard to this story.

Benghazi Update: CIA Operators Requested Permission to Help During Embassy Attack, All Were Denied

Share

The Benghazi story continues to take sickening turns, as we find out today that CIA Operators repeatedly asked to intervene, but were repeatedly denied.  FOX News has more…

Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later on the annex itself was denied by the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators twice to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11. 

Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they were again told to “stand down.” 

Kindly check out the rest of the article, as there is a great deal more information.

The long and short of it is this; there were CIA operatives were near the consulate.  They repeatedly asked for assistance, and assets were nearby.  And, at each step of the process, they were denied.  They might have been able to save lives, or even stop the attack, but they were actively prevented from doing so.

Is it just me, or has this story went from lying to hide incompetence, and it is now lying to hide intentionally getting people killed?

Benghazi Update: What Did President Obama do from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM on September 11, 2012, An Analysis of the Timeline and Administration Responses

Share

The buck stops at the top on this one. Via memeorandum I saw this CBS News storyCould U.S. military have helped during Libya attack?:

…Some lawmakers are asking why U.S. military help from outside Libya didn’t arrive as terrorists battered more than 30 Americans over the course of more than seven hours. The assault was launched by an armed mob of dozens that torched buildings and used rocket propelled grenades, mortars and AK-47 rifles.

CBS News has been told that, hours after the attack began, an unmanned Predator drone was sent over the U.S. mission in Benghazi, and that the drone and other reconnaissance aircraft apparently observed the final hours of the protracted battle….

…Retired CIA officer Gary Berntsen believes help could have come much sooner. He commanded CIA counter-terrorism missions targeting Osama bin Laden and led the team that responded after bombings of the U.S. Embassy in East Africa.

“You find a way to make this happen,” Berntsen says. “There isn’t a plan for every single engagement. Sometimes you have to be able to make adjustments. They made zero adjustments in this. They stood and they watched and our people died.”

The Pentagon says it did move a team of special operators from central Europe to the large Naval Air Station in Sigonella, Italy, but gave no other details. Sigonella is just an hour’s flight from Libya. Other nearby bases include Aviano and Souda Bay. Military sources tell CBS News that resources at the three bases include fighter jets and Specter AC-130 gunships, which the sources say can be extremely effective in flying in and buzzing a crowd to disperse it….

…Add to the controversy the fact that the last two Americans didn’t die until more than six hours into the attack, and the question of U.S. military help becomes very important…

The 3 AM phone call came in to someone (either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama) saying that our mission in Libya was under attack, that our Ambassador was locked in a life-and-death struggle with terrorists, that we were observing in real time the firefight from a drone, and that we had gunships and fighter jets within ‘an hour’s flight’ away. And nothing was done.

In fact, according to the report here, for several hours our drone watched the battle, and nothing was done. Let me just speculate out loud for a minute and try to figure out (based on this report) how the situation could have played out differently. According the timeline, security forces arrived at about 2:30 AM to retake the compound, so let’s work backwards from there. All times in Benghazi time.

If the drone had indeed watched ‘the final hours’, one can speculate that it arrived on the scene at the latest of 12:30 AM, the authorities took a couple minutes to assess the situation, then they dispatched fighter jets and gunships and transports, which took a little over an hour to arrive, putting help on the scene at 2 AM- a full 30 minutes earlier than they are reported to have arrived there. This probably doesn’t change much, although it does give authorities another 30 minutes to catch/kill the bad guys, recover sensitive information, and possibly discover where our Ambassador is.

But if the drone arrived earlier (12:00 or earlier) or help was dispatched as soon as the call for a drone went in (I’m not sure where the drone came from), than our forces might have arrived on the scene by 1:30 and been able to find the Ambassador’s body (not yet dead- maybe able to save with our medical technology) or 1:00 to rescue the Ambassador and prevent his death. If the drone was dispatched from Sigonella, then it is reasonable that help could have also been sent at the same time, and Stevens would have been saved for sure.

The timeline here is important, because someone dropped the ball and four Americans- including our Ambassador- are now dead because of that mistake.

Benghazi is 6 hours ahead of east coast time (Washington DC). So if the compound was attacked at 10 pm on September 11 (Benghazi time), that means it was 4:00 pm on September 11 in Washington DC. Around 11 pm (5 pm Eastern time), the fighting continues to rage around the main building. Around 12 am (6 pm eastern time), the annex comes under attack. Around 1 am (7 pm eastern time), Stevens is pulled out of the annex, alive by some reports. Around 2:30 am (8:30 eastern time), US forces retake the annex.

According to the President’s scheduleon that day he was going to be departing from Bethesda, Maryland at 4:40 PM en route the White House, arrive back to the White House at 4:50, and at 5:00 he would meet (along with Joe Biden) with the Secretary of Defense Panetta. At 7:51 pm we get a report that our compound in Libya has been attacked, at 10:10 pm we get an unnamed administration official saying that Egypt embassy statements don’t reflect White House views, 10:38 pm the Secretary of State issued a statement, at 12:09 am Obama spokesman tweets that the White House is shocked by Romney’s earlier tweets, at 7:21 am on September 12 Obama issued a statement. (source on statements)

I have been unable to establish (through an hour of searching google) anything further regarding the President’s actions to counter this schedule on September 11 that would shed more light on his actions, including where was the President, what did he know, and when did he know it.

According to reports, the President was aware about the attack about 90 minutes after it began- about 5:30. Give him a couple minutes to take in the information and figure out our response, and by 6:00 pm at the latest he’s ordered our boys in to rescue our people under attack. Given a ‘one hour response time’, that puts our forces in control of the compound at 7:00 pm, or 1:00 AM Benghazi time, right around the time that the annex was under attack and BEFORE the Ambassador was dead. But that didn’t happen.

Although some are saying that President Obama simply heard the news and then went to bed, I was unable to find any evidence of this or any sort of reaction by the administration. The first responses by the administration at 10:10 pm (4 am Benghazi) playing defense regarding statements from the embassy in Egypt and at 12:09 am (6 am Benghazi) a political response attacking his opponent in an upcoming election- but Obama and the media have been silent about what President Obama did between 5:30 pm and the next day.

I’m most concerned myself regarding the President’s actions between 5:30 pm and 7:30 pm- during that 2 hour window the President was in the unique position to do something to save Americans lives and prevent bad guys from killing our Ambassador, and it is still today, some time later, that we are unclear about just what he was doing during that time period. It’s too early for him to be in bed, so I don’t think that was it- but it would not surprise me if he was watching TV or a movie or eating some sort of fancy meal during that time instead of DOING HIS JOB and working to defend American citizens, soldiers, and diplomats.

So it wasn’t a ‘3 AM’ phone call- but when the phone rang at 5:30 and the President was briefed about what was going on (with information fed to him then or soon after by an unmanned drone), the President was thrust into a position to make a call and exercise leadership to save American lives… and there is no evidence from him or anyone else that he did so in any way. Instead he soon was back to playing politics and jetting off to fundraise before celebrities, proving once more that he is unfit for command and should be relieved of his duties as Commander-in-Chief and President of the United States of America.

Parallel Universe Alert: It's OK for the CIA to Kill a Cleric, but for God's Sake, Don't Violate his Rights

Share

Anwar al-Awlaki, a Muslim Cleric from New Mexico, is on the CIA’s “Kill or Capture” list.  Apparently, it is OK to kill Americans without a trial.  However, we can’t possibly violate their right to privacy!  

While the New Mexico-born cleric, Anwar al-Awlaki, is the first American on the CIA’s kill or capture list, the U.S. State Department refuses to release documents about al-Awlaki citing his right to privacy. This disconnect was uncovered as part of the ongoing investigation by Fox News’ Specials Unit into the cleric who is a leader of a major Al Qaeda affiliate. 

Through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in March 2010, Fox News requested “….any and all records maintained by the United States Department of State, in the passport file….” for the cleric. Initially, the request was referred to Human Resources at the State Department, before a formal response was issued more than a year later, in August 2011. The letter reads in part : 

“The Department of State, Passport Services has reviewed your request and has given full consideration to the reasons provided. However, we have determined that your request must be denied. This denial is pursuant to subsection (b)(6) of the Freedom of Information Act. The release of this information to you would be an invasion of personal privacy of another person, without written authorization from that person.” 

Alrighty then.  It’s apparently OK to deprive him of his life without a trial,  but he has a right to privacy?  I get the fact that he is probably a bad guy.  I don’t argue that point, but don’t we arrest American citizens, and then give them a fair trial? I have no problem with that, put him in front of a jury, and try him for treason.  If he get’s a lethal injection, or even the gallows for his crimes, so be it.   Hell, he even has a right to privacy-he still is an American citizen.  But, without that all important “life” part, “liberty and the pursuit of happiness” is a tad bit meaningless, isn’t it?

However, as our government continues to deprive people of their rights, and gives itself more and more power, we’ll continue to see more and more of these nonsensical  dichotomies.

We probably ought not forget that if we give the government the power to assassinate Americans without a trial, how long before that power is focused on someone else the government decides is “bad?”
