Who will defend and protect America and Americans, and with what?, Re: The Disappearance of US Will, FrontPage Magazine, April 18, 2014

We all know what happens to sitting ducks, don’t we? 

They get shot. They get killed. They get devoured. 

Its a basic, fundamental law of nature. 

The strong devour the weak. 

The United States was strong, but it is strong no longer. 

The enemies of the U.S. were weak, but they are weak no longer. 

The United States is getting weaker and weaker day by day. 

The enemies of the U.S. are getting stronger and stronger day by day. 

China, Iran, North Korea, Russia, all of them. 

Every single one of them is expanding its military capabilities exponentially, conventional and otherwise. 

China, North Korea and Russia are already nuclear powers and Iran will join them very soon. 

At the same time, Obama is gutting and decimating the American military and reducing it to a shadow of its former self. 

Including its nuclear arm. 

Actually, its already a shadow of its former self. 

All of which means that the national security of the United States is in jeopardy and is becoming more and more jeopardized day by day. 

All of which means that the U.S. will soon lose the ability to defend and protect itself, if it hasn’t lost it already. 

All of which means that the U.S. can no longer defend and protect its allies, allies which are essential to its national security. 

Which is of course why they are arming themselves to the teeth and why they will act on their own to defend and protect themselves if need be. 

Israel and Iran being but one example. 

All of which is why America’s enemies are acting with impunity all over the world and basically doing whatever they want to do regardless of whatever threats and condemnations are issued by Obama. 

Russia and Ukraine being but one example. 

All of which is why one or all of America’s enemies will soon find it very tempting to attack America itself. 

All of which is why one or all of America’s enemies will soon find itself unable to resist the temptation and will launch an attack on America itself, an attack which could very well kill millions upon millions of Americans and destroy the country. 

All of which is why we are on the brink of World War Three and why we are getting closer and closer to going over the edge with each passing moment. 

An America which is weaker than its enemies is a dead America. 

America is losing its will to defend and protect itself and it is rapidly losing the ability too, if it hasn’t already. 

Who will defend and protect America and Americans when the time comes? 

It won’t be Barack Hussein Obama, that’s for sure. 

It won’t be the American military either, not because it wouldn’t want to or wouldn’t try to but because it wouldn’t be able to. 

All of which is why it is essential for Americans to rid themselves of Obama and restore their military to its former might. 

Like, now. 

While they still can. 

National security…national survival. 

It doesn’t get any more basic than that. 

Time is running out my friends, time is running out.

An Easter message from Nasir al-Wuhayshi, Al-Qaeda’s number two, Re: Al-Qaeda jihadist: “We must eliminate the cross…the bearer of the cross is America!”, Jihad Watch, April 16, 2014

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

A video which has recently begun appearing on jihadist websites shows a jihadist named Nasir al-Wuhayshi addressing well over 100 fellow jihadists in Yemen. Nasir al-Wuhayshi is Al-Qaeda’s number two leader globally and head of its affiliate in the Arabian Peninsula. Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is considered to be the most dangerous Al-Qaeda affiliate of all and includes among its members a highly skilled and highly capable bomb maker responsible for many attacks and attempted attacks against the United States named Ibrahim al-Asiri. 

In his address al-Wuhayshi made it very clear that he intends to attack the U.S. and sow destruction, bloodshed and death. His message was uncompromising and unequivocal. Among other things he said to his fellow jihadists “We must eliminate the cross…the bearer of the cross is America!”. 

Can’t get any clearer, uncompromising or unequivocal than that, can you? 

Is Al-Qaeda in general and al-Wuhayshi in particular capable of attacking the United States and sowing destruction, bloodshed and death? 

Absolutely. 

Will his comments inspire fellow travellers, fellow jihadists, to attack America and Americans, whether they are affiliated with Al-Qaeda or not? 

Absolutely. 

Is it any accident that the video of al-Wuhayshi’s address surfaced at Easter, one of the two most important, significant holidays in the Christian calendar, the other being Christmas? 

No, it is not. 

Does this mean that Americans can expect to be attacked by Al-Qaeda operatives and/or other jihadists in the foreseeable future, perhaps even in the near future, perhaps even on Good Friday or Easter Sunday itself? 

Yes, it does. 

“We must eliminate the cross…the bearer of the cross is America!”. 

Happy Easter from Nasir al-Wuhayshi and his fellow jihadists around the world, including the thousands who are in the United States at this very moment. 

Oh, and the next time some craven, opportunistic politician like President Obama tells you that Al-Qaeda has been defeated and is no longer a threat to America and Americans treat their comments with the contempt they deserve.

What are those parentheses doing there?, Re: France, Islam and the ‘Spreading Hatred’, Wall Street Journal, April 15, 2014

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

The parentheses in the Wall Street Journal headline should not be there and the Journal was irresponsible and did a terrible disservice to its readers by placing them there. They cast doubt on the fact that Islamists acting in the name of Islam are spreading hatred and intolerance throughout France and that the hatred and intolerance they are spreading is changing the nature and character of the country from French to Islamic…they cast doubt on the fact that Islamists acting in the name of Islam are attacking and usurping French values and traditions and institutions and laws and the French way of life everywhere in France…they cast doubt on the fact that Islamists acting in the name of Islam have already taken over many areas of the country and that many areas of the country are already under their control and French values, traditions, institutions, laws and the French way of life might as well not exist in these areas…they cast doubt on the fact that Islamists influence and depredations and outright flouting of all things French in favor of all things Islamic is large and growing and shows no signs of slowing down or being stopped. The parentheses are deceptive in the extreme because there is no doubt whatsoever that Islamists acting in the name of Islam are spreading hatred and intolerance and an Islamic way of life throughout France. This is not a figment of anyone’s imagination and French men or women that haven’t got their heads in the sand or been cowed into submission or aren’t fellow travellers of the Islamists will admit it. 

So what are those parentheses doing there? 

I don’t know. 

You’ll have to ask the Wall Street Journal Journal if you want an answer. 

I just know they shouldn’t be. 

I just know that their presence means that Journal readers did not get an honest, objective or accurate picture of the situation in France and that they colored the story from the very beginning. 

The Journal should have known better. 

The Journal should have done better. 

Oh, and by the way, things aren’t any better in the rest of Europe. 

Oh, and by the way, the Islamic threat in the United States, Australia, Canada and the rest of the West is also large and growing. Islamists acting in the name of Islam are spreading their doctrine and attacking and usurping Western values, traditions, institutions, laws and the Western way of life everywhere in the West, not just in Europe. 

That’s not a figment of anyone’s imagination either.

Cocky Putin boxes feckless Obama’s ears, Re: Russian Fighter Jet Buzzes US Navy Ship in Black Sea, Newsmax, April 14, 2014

Monday, April 14th, 2014

A Russian fighter jet repeatedly buzzed a United States Navy Destroyer on routine patrol in international waters in the Black Sea last Saturday. The Russian warplane made numerous passes over the USS Donald Cook. It flew within a thousand yards of the ship at roughly 500 feet above sea level, which is very close indeed. Several radio warnings were issued by the ship over the length of the episode, which lasted for approximately ninety minutes. The Russian fighter jet was accompanied by another warplane which kept its distance and did not approach the Donald Cook. 

It is absolutely inconceivable that the two Russian pilots carried out this mission on their own wherewithal. Their orders had to come straight from the top, which means that Russian President Vladimir Putin either concocted and ordered it himself or at the very least approved it. Either way, it simply would not have happened unless he gave the go-ahead. That means that the Russian Air Force carried out an extremely provocative mission against the United States Navy and by extension the United States itself with the full knowledge and consent of the Russian head of state. If that’s not an act of war its very close and is certainly the next best thing. If that doesn’t demand a vigorous response to prevent further provocations in the future, provocations which could easily include an armed attack of some kind, I don’t know what would. 

So a Russian fighter jet buzzes a United States Navy Destroyer for ninety minutes in international waters and how does the U.S. respond? As of this writing, it hasn’t. It hasn’t even discussed the incident with the Russians, much less done anything about it. 

Just as it is inconceivable that Putin’s fingerprints weren’t all over the Russian mission it is equally inconceivable that President Obama’s fingerprints aren’t all over America’s lack of response to it. Given Obama’s track record and mentality there is no other explanation. Obama no doubt hopes that by ignoring the provocation it will be forgotten, that it will go away. It won’t. Putin and the Russians will learn from it and be encouraged by it and their behavior will do nothing but increase and escalate. That is how bullies behave and Putin is nothing but a bully. Make no mistake, he has the measure of the feckless Obama, which is why the incident occurred to begin with. 

Needless to say the Iranians, the North Koreans and all of America’s other enemies have Obama’s measure too. 

Vladimir Putin boxed Barack Obama’s ears alright, and not for the first time either. 

Which raises the question-just what does a country have to do to the United States before the U.S. under Obama responds substantively? 

Lob a missile at New York or Los Angeles, attack an American naval vessel, shoot down an American aircraft, launch a terror attack on the homeland, what? 

In a related development, the Russian military just carried out a successful test of a new multi-warhead intercontinental ballistic missile with a range of 3,500 miles designed specifically to defeat American missile defenses. 

In the meantime, Obama is doing everything he can to decimate and weaken the American military, including its nuclear arm, just at a time when its enemies are doing everything they can to expand and strengthen theirs, just at a time when the United States is likely to need it most. 

If I was an American I’d be very very ashamed. 

If I was an American I’d be very very worried. 

If I was an American I’d be very very scared. 

If I was an American I’d be very, very angry. 

Putin is cocky alright. 

With Obama in office he has every reason to be.

Thought police have to be fought at every turn, Re: Deference to thought police ruining U.S., Washington Times, April 11, 2014

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

If Americans (or Brits or Canadians or anyone else living in the West) lose the ability to speak their minds and express their opinions they will lose everything because freedom cannot possibly survive if they do so. Instead of living in free countries they will find themselves living in totalitarian ones and their freedom will be a thing of the past. That is precisely what’s happening everywhere in the West, even in the United States, the bastion of free speech and freedom of expression. The thought police are everywhere and free speech and freedom of expression are in jeopardy wherever you look, even in America…especially in America. They represent our governments, our schools and universities are full of them, they come from all sides of the political spectrum, especially the left, they stifle dissent wherever they find it and they are breed nothing but intolerance, conformity, hate and robotic, totalitarian “thinking”. 

Deference to the thought police is ruining the United States alright. Its ruining every other country in the West too. Actually, its doing more than ruining them, its destroying them. People everywhere are being muzzled, shut up, denigrated, vilified, threatened and attacked for daring to express views that are contrary to perceived wisdom, contrary to whatever the current, permissible orthodoxy is. People everywhere are being muzzled, shut up, denigrated, vilified, threatened and attacked for merely questioning perceived wisdom or the orthodoxy of the day, never mind expressing views that are contrary to them. As for criticism, forget about it, no matter how well informed, accurate or knowledgeable it is. Try questioning climate change or gay marriage or Islam or any number of other things for example and see what happens…try criticizing climate change or gay marriage or Islam or any number of other things for example and see what happens…the thought police will come down on your head like a ton of bricks and try to muzzle you and shut you up…they will denigrate you, vilify you, threaten you, attack you and try to ruin your life in all manner of ways. You will be publicly labelled and shamed and accused of being a “denier” or “homophobic” or “Islamophobic” or “racist” or a “misogynist” or a purveyor of “hate speech”or whatever…you may even lose your job or your home or your financial independence…hell, you may even be jailed, or killed. 

None of that is any exaggeration at all. People are being turned into robots and forced conformity is the order of the day…people are losing their ability to think critically and express themselves…people are succumbing to fear and intimidation…if that keeps up freedom will be lost, plain and simple… if we keep on deferring to the thought police and letting them get away with forcing everyone to think and act the same way we are sounding the death knell of the free world, plain and simple. 

Synonyms for Easter include rebirth and resurrection…synonyms for Passover include freedom and survival. In this holiday season free speech, freedom of expression and freedom itself have to be reborn and resurrected, everywhere in the West. If they aren’t reborn and resurrected they won’t survive and neither will the West. That means that the thought police have to be fought at every turn, no matter the personal price. That means that anyone who tries to silence or punish dissent or dissenters in any way, shape or form should not be allowed to get away with it, no matter what their justification is, even if it is religious. Nothing else will do. Fight the thought police and keep on fighting them, that’s the only answer to what they are trying to do. 

And no, I’m not a “denier” or “homophobic” or “Islamophobic” or “racist” or a “misogynist” or a purveyor of “hate speech” or anything else. I’m a free citizen of a free country, for now, and I want to stay that way. 

Happy Easter. 

Happy Passover.

Americans are warned, sort of, Re: State Department Issues Worldwide Caution Against Terrorist Attacks Targeting US, RTT News, April 11, 2014

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

From a Worldwide Caution update just issued by the US State Department. 

“Extremists may elect to use conventional or non-conventional weapons, and target both official and private interests. Examples of such targets include high-profile sporting events, residential areas, business offices, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, schools, public areas, shopping malls, and other tourist destinations both in the United States and abroad where U.S. citizens gather in large numbers, including during holidays.” 

The underlining is mine and simply serves to emphasize the point…Americans are prime targets and are not safe from attack anywhere in the world, even in the United States itself. 

Will the warning be effective? I don’t know, but I do know it would have been much more honest and accurate if the word Islamist was substituted for the word extremist wherever it appears in the warning and that such honesty and accuracy would make Americans far safer because they would have a much clearer picture of those who wish to do them harm. Al-Qaeda and its affiliates are mentioned several times in the warning and they are after all Islamists…using the word extremist instead of Islamist is dishonest, disingenuous and dangerous because it doesn’t tell Americans who to look for, who really wants to maim and murder them in the name of Islam, which justifies, sanctions, legitimizes, mandates and rewards their activities in the first place. 

Its Islamists. 

Acting in the name of Islam. 

Not extremists. 

Islamists. 

So the State Department saw fit to warn Americans. 

Good. 

Too bad it wasn’t entirely honest with them. 

Oh well, at least they were warned. 

Sort of.

Brandeis University soils itself by violating its own principles, Re: The case of Ayaan Hirsi Ali: cowardly Brandeis University capitulates to Islamic pressure, Daily Telegraph, April 10, 2014

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a fierce, courageous and indefatigable defender and proponent of women’s rights in Islamic societies and is one of the bravest, outspoken and prominent human rights activists of our time. She herself was born into and lived under the misogyny, oppression and barbarity of Sharia, Islamic law, suffered through the pain, cruelty and indignity of female genital mutilation and escaped from an arranged marriage to a cousin by emigrating to Holland in 1992. She was a member of parliament there between 2003 and 2006 and sought to further the integration of non-western immigrants into Dutch society and worked to defend the rights of Islamic women in the Netherlands. She criticizes Islam because it is impossible to speak out for women’s rights, human rights, in Islamic societies and cultures and not be critical of it. In 2004 she and film director Theo van Gogh made a film entitled Submission, which was about the oppression of women in Islamic societies…van Gogh was murdered on the street in broad daylight as a result and she has had to live under police protection ever since. 

The lady knows whereof she speaks and has the fortitude and gumption to keep on speaking and working even though she pays an enormous personal price and is constantly at risk of being murdered for doing so. 

Brandeis University was founded in 1948 and is located not far from Boston, Massachusetts. According to its website it is “named for the late Louis Dembitz Brandeis, the distinguished associate justice of the United States Supreme Court, and reflects the ideals of academic excellence and social justice he personified.” It is a small liberal arts university and is one of the most prestigious, highly-rated, elite universities in the United States, if not the world. 

Louis Brandeis would roll over in his grave if he knew what the university that was named after him just did. 

It soiled itself by violating its own principles and everything it is supposed to stand for. 

The university decided not to award an honorary degree to Ali after announcing that it was going to at its upcoming commencement. 

It rescinded its offer because Islamic groups like CAIR, the Council of American-Islamic Relations, objected loudly and vociferously to her receiving the degree because of the nature of her work and her concomitant criticism and exposure of Islam, as did a number of faculty and students. Make no mistake though CAIR, which has a long history of suppressing and attempting to suppress criticism and exposure of Islam, of demonizing, vilifying, attacking and trying to shut up anyone who is even remotely critical of Islam or who does anything except whitewash it, was one of the prime movers of the cancellation. Basically, CAIR and its fellow travellers bullied and intimidated the university into rescinding its offer to confer an honorary degree on Ali because it couldn’t countenance her work or her thoughts and didn’t want anyone to be exposed to them for fear that they might agree with her, or at least make further enquires. They felt the need to shut her up at Brandeis and they did exactly that. Shutting her up was a clear, and successful, attack on freedom of speech, freedom of expression, the integrity of the university and everything the university supposedly stands for and Brandeis should be utterly ashamed of itself for allowing it to happen. 

Ali’s response was published by Time Magazine. 

Here it is. 

Yesterday Brandeis University decided to withdraw an honorary degree they were to confer upon me next month during their Commencement exercises. I wish to dissociate myself from the university’s statement, which implies that I was in any way consulted about this decision. On the contrary, I was completely shocked when President Frederick Lawrence called me-just a few hours before issuing a public statement-to say that such a decision had been made. 

When Brandeis approached me with the offer of an honorary degree, I accepted partly because of the institution’s distinguished history; it was founded in 1948; in the wake of World War !! and the Holocaust, as a co-educational, nonsectarian university at a time when many American universities still imposed rigid quotas on Jewish students. I assumed that Brandeis intended to honor me for my work as a defender of the rights of women against abuses that are often religious in origin. For over a decade, I have spoken out against such practices as female genital mutilation, so-called “honor killings,’ and applications of Sharia Law that justify such forms of domestic abuse such as wife beating or child beating. Part of my work has been to question the role of Islam in legitimizing such abhorrent practices. So I was not surprised when my usual critics, notably the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), protested against me being honored in this way. 

What did surprise me was the behavior of Brandeis. Having spent many months planning for me to speak to its students at Commencement, the university yesterday announced that it could not “overlook certain of my past statements,” which it had not previously been aware of. Yet my critics have long specialized in selective quotation-lines from interviews taken out of context-designed to misrepresent me and my work. It is scarcely credible that Brandeis did not know this when they initially offered me the degree. 

What was initially intended as an honor has now devolved into a moment of shaming. Yet the slur on my reputation is not the worst aspect of this episode. More deplorable is that an institution set up on the basis of religious freedom should today so deeply betray its own founding principles. The “spirit of free expression” referred to in the Brandeis statement has been stifled here, as my critics have achieved their objective of preventing me from addressing the graduating class of 2014. Neither Brandeis nor my critics knew or even inquired as to what I might say. They simply wanted me to be silenced. I regret that very much. 

Not content with a public disavowal, Brandeis has invited me “to join us on campus in the future to engage in a dialogue about these important issues.” sadly, in words and deeds, the university has already spoken its piece. I have no wish to “engage” in such one-sided dialogue. I can only wish the Class of 2014 the best of luck-and hope that they will go forth to be better advocates for free expression and free thought than their alma mater. 

I take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported me and my work on behalf of oppressed women and girls everywhere. 

Ayaan Hirsi Ali 

Brandeis University soiled itself alright. 

Louis Brandeis really would turn over in his grave.

Peace process never had a hope of succeeding and was always a waste of time and energy anyway, Re: The Mideast peace process peters out, Washington Times, April 8, 2014

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Current attempts to negotiate peace between Israel and the Palestinians are effectively dead, which should come as no surprise to anyone.

Good. The current peace process, like all attempts to achieve peace before it, never had a hope of succeeding and was nothing more than a waste of time and energy anyway, time and energy which could have been spent far more productively elsewhere. 

Perhaps now that this latest attempt has reached the end of the line Israelis, Americans and everyone else will recognize the futility of trying to make peace with people who demonstrably don’t want it and will stop pandering to them in order to achieve the impossible. Perhaps now that this latest attempt has reached the end the line the world will recognize the Palestinians for the obstructionists, pseudo-victims and charlatans they really are. Perhaps now that this latest attempt has reached the end of the line the Israelis and Americans will take their ball and go home as it were and leave the Palestinians to their own devices because they recognize and understand at long last that Palestinian intransigence, behaviour and attitudes are the true impediments to peace and always have been and that nothing will change until they do. Perhaps now that this latest attempt has reached the end of the line Israelis and Americans will stop wasting their time and energy on efforts that are bound to fail. 

The simple fact of the matter is that Israel wants peace and has done everything possible to secure it over the years whereas the Palestinians don’t want peace and have done everything possible to prevent it over the years, including lying and breaking their word regularly and frequently (among a great many other things) on occasions which are almost too numerous to count. The simple fact of the matter is that if the Palestinians truly wanted peace and truly wanted their own state they could have had both many years ago. The simple fact of the matter is that the Palestinians have rejected peace and rejected their own state many times since Israel first came into existence. The simple fact of the matter is that there is no peace and there is no Palestinian state living in safety, security, harmony and friendship next to Israel because the Palestinians won’t allow either to happen, have never allowed either to happen. 

Given their track record right up to the present time there is no point whatsoever time in talking to them about anything, least of all peace or their own state. Given their track record right up to the present time there is no point whatsoever in believing anything they say or have ever said. Given their track record right up to the present time all anyone can reasonably expect from them is more of the same. Given their track record right up to the present time thinking that they are interested in peace and their own state living in safety, security, harmony and friendship next to Israel and are capable of achieving either is delusional. 

The Israelis and Americans really should take their ball and go home as it were. 

What’s the point in wasting their time and energy after all? 

There is none. 

Perhaps that will cause the Palestinians to finally come to their senses. 

Nothing else has. 

I see that Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel has just instructed instructed all government ministries except Defence and Justice to cease civilian and economic cooperation with the Palestinian Authority. 

Now if only the Americans would do the same we might get somewhere.

Are you haraam or makrooh?, Re: New York: Woman converts to Islam, shocked to discover she’s now considered inferior to men, Jihad Watch, April 6, 2014

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

The Council of Islamic Ideology is responsible for providing legal advice on Islamic issues to the Government and Parliament of Pakistan. 

According to Wikipedia it has the following four functions. 

To recommend laws conforming to Qur’an and Sunnah to the Parliament and Provincial Assemblies. 

To advise the Parliament, Government of Pakistan, President of Pakistan, or Governor on any question referred to the Council as to whether a proposed law is or is not repugnant to the Injunctions of Islam. 

To make recommendations to bring current laws into conformity with Islamic injunctions. 

To compile guidance for the Parliament and Provincial Assemblies. 

American Thinker recently printed an article entitled Muslim clerics: Women should cease to exist. 

Here it is. 

Islamabad-Sharia Correspondent: The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) concluded their 192nd meeting on Thursday with the ruling that women are un-Islamic and that their mere existence contradicted Sharia and the will of Allah. As the meeting concluded CII Chairman Maulana Muhammad Khan Shirani noted that women by existing defied the laws of nature, and to protect Islam and the Sharia women should be forced to stop existing as soon as possible. The announcement comes a couple of days after CII’s 191st meeting where they dubbed laws related to minimum marriage age to be un-Islamic. 

After declaring women to be un-Islamic, Shirani explained that there were actually two kinds of women-haraam and makrooh. “We can divide all the women in the world into two distinct categories: those who are haraam and those who are makrooh. Now the difference between haraam and makrooh is that the former is categorically forbidden while the latter is really really disliked,” Shirani said. 

He further went on to explain how the women around the world can ensure that they get promoted to makrooh, from just being downright haraam. “Any woman who exercises her will is haraam, absolutely haraam, and is conspiring against Islam and the Ummah, whereas those women who are totally subservient can reach the status of makrooh. Such is the generosity of our ideology and such is the endeavour of Muslim men like us who are the true torchbearers of gender equality,” the CII chairman added. 

Officials told Khabaristan Today that the council members deliberated over various historic references related to women and concluded that each woman is a source of fitna and a perpetual enemy of Islam. They also decided that by restricting them to their subordinate, bordering on slave status, the momineen and the mujahideen can ensure that Islam continues to be the religion of peace, prosperity and gender equality. 

End of article. 

In a related development, a woman in New York who recently converted to Islam has expressed shock that she is now considered to be inferior to men. 

Surprise surprise. 

Guess she didn’t do her homework before she converted. 

If she didn’t want to be considered inferior to men she should never have converted in the first place. 

Enough said.

Why does Obama want to do it…who knows…who cares…he must be stopped, Re: Obama to Kill Tomahawk, Hellfire Missile Programs, Washington Free Beacon, March 25, 2014

President Obama is making it very tempting for America’s enemies, specifically China, Iran, North Korea and Russia to attack the United States in force because he is gutting the American military and rapidly making it impossible for the military to defend and protect the country…because the military may or may not have the might to deter an attack today and definitely will not have it tomorrow if Obama keeps on with his policy of emasculating it and effectively making it weaker and weaker and removing its ability to keep America and Americans safe from attack. And make no mistake, America’s military is becoming weaker and weaker day by day, while America’s enemies are becoming stronger and stronger day by day…America’s enemies are pouring money and resources into their armed forces and increasing their capabilities as we speak…under Obama America is stripping its military of resources and reducing its capability as we speak. That is a recipe for disaster and guarantees that the United States will be attacked in force in the future, and the not too distant future at that, perhaps even with nuclear weapons…what is tempting today will be a fait accompli tomorrow because by then the American military will have become so weak that no one will have anything to fear from it. Deterrent effect…what deterrent effect? 

In his latest nonsensical and dangerous move Obama is attempting to abolish two of the most effective, successful weapons systems in the military’s arsenal and replacing them with…nothing. He wants to get rid of the Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs, both of which are cornerstones of American power, both of which are key elements in keeping America and Americans safe and secure and both of which are essential to whatever is left of America’s ability to deter its enemies. Militarily, getting rid of the Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs makes absolutely no sense at all…all it really does is bring an attack on America and Americans that much closer. Getting rid of the Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs would dramatically weaken the American military and it is weak enough already. 

So why does Obama want to do it? 

So why is Obama gutting the military and making it weaker and weaker with every passing moment? 

Speculating on that is a waste of time, time that America and Americans don’t have, time that the free world doesn’t have either because truth be told the free world cannot possibly survive without a strong, resolute America at its helm, because truth be told, if America dies the free world will die along with it. 

Obama may be doing these things because he’s delusional or stupid or ignorant or narcissistic or historically illiterate…he may be doing them on purpose because he wants to destroy the United States for religious, Islamic, or ideological, Marxist, reasons…he may be doing them because he’s an easily manipulated simpleton…there are any number of possible reasons. The point is though that he is doing these things and that he will keep on doing them unless he is stopped…unless he is stopped he will keep on doing them until America passes a point of no return and one or several of America’s enemies decide to attack in force because they think they can defeat America and take over the country…a point of no return which is rapidly approaching 

Americans should take heed of the old adage “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” 

In the world America lives in that is more true than ever. 

Under Obama, the bad guys are getting more and more and bigger and better guns and the good guys soon won’t be able to stop them even if they wanted to. 

Americans have to remove him from office and restore the military to its previous might 

If they want themselves and their country to survive that is. 

Time really is of the essence.
