Ayaan Hirsi Ali on the Islamists’ Final Stand – Newsweek and The Daily Beast

Ayaan Hirsi Ali on the Islamists’ Final Stand – Newsweek and The Daily Beast.

An absolute must read! From a woman who escaped the barbarians who are now at OUR gates.

If you won’t listen to Americans telling you that caving in on free speech is a bad idea and that appeasement NEVER works- perhaps you will listen to someone who escaped and lived to tell about it?

In the past 23 years, we have learned a lot about the danger of giving in to the demands of extremists. We now know all too well how it incites them to demand more and to refuse reason and a peaceful settlement.

Or at least some of us know it. How often have I endured bizarre conversations with government officials who cling to the illusion that the threat is temporary or that it can be negotiated. And then there are the even more delusional positions staked out by some prominent intellectuals who blame the writer, the politician, the filmmaker, or the cartoonist for provoking the threat.

It was Voltaire who once said: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” As Salman Rushdie discovered, as we are reminded again as the Arab street burns, that sentiment is seldom heard in our time. Once I was ready to burn The Satanic Verses. Now I know that his right to publish it was a more sacred thing than any religion.

Fantasy President

The current squatter at 1600 is a fictional composite made up by who knows who and installed by the puppet masters. So it got me to thinking, if we are going to have a pretend president, why not have a good one? If I could pick one fictional character to be President, it would be Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. With immediate implementation of the Ryan Doctrine.

The fictional Ryan came to be President after terrorists flew a plane into the Capitol building, destroying almost our entire government. One of his first tasks is to reconstitute the government (while simultaneously dealing with a challenge to his legitimacy as President, following up on the investigation of the terrorist attack and comforting and rallying the citizenry Multi-Tasker!). He calls on the American people to send him REAL people to work with in Congress. And for the most part, the people do it.

In the books, Ryan gets lots of things done. Including croaking instigator terrorist Islamofascist types. He is a true white hat good guy. Kills off Ayatollahs by lobbing precision missile strikes through their bedroom windows. While broadcasting live over the intertubes ROFL! Stops the bad guys in China. Turns Russia into our friend. Gets the middle east in order by using their own law against the bastards- and getting the Saudis and Israelis to go along with it- with public executions! (In the books, Jerusalem becomes a kind of international city- all peaceful and all- I can dream- it is after all just a book. I like the way Clancy comes up with a solution that is so common sense. Too bad the boyz in charge would never have the balls to try such a thing!)

One of the better things about Jack Ryan is that he is NOT a politician. He comes from a true working class background. Did a stint in the military (which ended when a helicopter he was in crashed.) He goes to work. Makes money on Wall Street and gets out. Becomes a Professor (the real kind! Not a fake affirmative action Alinsky lecturer.) Writes a couple of history books. Becomes and analyst for the CIA and works his way up through a combination of smarts and guts. He did not seek any nominations for political office. His service is for the most part for love of our great country (other than one time when he comes out of retirement to help hunt down the IRA terrorists that attacked his wife and daughter.)

My kind of guy!

There are more clips- Hunt for Red October, Clear and Present Danger. My Dad turned me on to Tom Clancy’s books. Everyone needs an escape!

What fictional character would you pick for President?

On Our Soil!

Used to be that is your kid was stationed here in the States you pretty much didn’t worry. Well, you worried, but about the same things you worry for all your kids. You sure did not worry about them being shot or blown up on their base right here in the USA!

Then we have the Ft. Hood massacre perpetrated by an islamofascist terrorist trained and employed BY THE ARMY!!!! WTF! Lots of warning signs- but hey- there’s a shortage in that MOS so just ignore it. (Said islamofascist paralyzed asshole has still not been court-martialed and shot and is alive and sucking up your tax dollars and mine with his medical and legal bills. And the government seems to be a bunch of idiots because the jerk is in a public jail instead of a military facility.)

So then a few days ago I see on the news that two idiots, bastards tried to enter MacDill in Fl.

Tampa, Florida — Guns and ammunition have been removed from an SUV that was stopped just inside the Bayshore Gate at MacDill Air Force Base Monday night.

Then I am cruising the news this morning and I see there is apparently a plague of these assholes loose in this country.

FORT GORDON, Ga. – The FBI was investigating after a civilian was arrested with explosives in his vehicle on an Army base in Georgia that is headquarters to the service’s global communication and information systems, authorities said Wednesday.

Military authorities were not treating the case as a terrorist threat, said Buz Yarnell, a spokesman for Fort Gordon near Augusta.

The arrest Tuesday came a day after an AWOL serviceman was arrested in Florida for trying to enter an Air Force base there with fake ID and weapons, although authorities did not link the two and the Florida case was also deemed not terrorism.

Um- you see that part that I put in bold? Well take a look at this re MacDill.

The base is home to U.S. Central Command, which runs the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

And Fort Hood units have played a major role in the wars currently in progress.  They are trying to wreak major havoc in the command and control structures I think. Not terrorism? Only in Barackastan.

These terrorist  assholes are REALLY starting to piss me off.  If you do not love our country- then please don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.(And that includes YOU Barack!)

Just remember- it is the soldiers (including members of my immediate family) that fight for your freedom to believe as you will and say what you think. Try giving free rein to your freedom of speech in one of the enemy Islamic states and see how far you get. Due process in those barbarian countries consists of asking which ear you want the bullet in.

Oh and maybe just maybe our government will wise up really soon and remember that the oath is to protect from ALL enemies- foreign and DOMESTIC! I hope some of these worms start running into some troops that take the oath literally and  save us some tax dollars.

God Bless America. Our Lady, Queen of the Americas, protect our troops!

Update

Man seized at Army post had land mine, laser scope

Anthony Todd Saxon, 34, was charged with impersonating an Army master sergeant and stealing the infrared laser targeting sight after he was caught on the east Georgia base with a land mine, several grenades and night vision devices, prosecutors said.

{snip} Here’s the kicker- are you ready?

“Anybody can get on Fort Gordon with a driver’s license,” Yarnell said. “It’s open to the public, basically.”

Can we get some security here please? For crying out loud! It’s a military base- not a public park!

Will America Remain Great?

This being the anniversary of John Glenn’s historic flight- a few words about American greatness.  Do you remember this??

President Kennedy- unlike the current occupant of the White House, understood the need for America to LEAD. President Kennedy, in a time when the very idea of space exploration was so new as to be still almost the stuff of science fiction, understood the long-term implications for defense. Although the space program costs were mind boggling- the benefits are many. Satellites for weather and communications come to mind immediately along with Tang (you have to be my age to know what that is and how it relates to the space program.) How about all the jobs created by the space program? Not just in the sciences, but in the factories that built the components, the colleges and universities- why even down to the restaurant and gift shop jobs that grew up around Cape Canaveral when excited Americans flocked to see a rocket launch.

Hope you all enjoyed it- because Obama is cutting it out of the budget.

But in his 2011 budget request issued on Monday, Mr Obama said the project was too costly, “behind schedule, and lacking in innovation”.

Instead- we will have this-

NASA plans more outreach to Muslim countries

“We really like Indonesia because the State Department, the Department of Education [and] other agencies in the U.S. are reaching out to Indonesia as the largest Muslim nation in the world. We would love to establish partners there,” Bolden said.

I don’t know about you but to me this does not seem like a very good idea- especially not with Iran already launching rockets.  Do a web search on Indonesia and terrorism and you will see why.

More pandering to countries that can not and will not get their terrorist jihadists under control? What is he thinking?

It seems to me that Obama and his controllers are determined to drag America down to the lowest common denominator. He goes around the world apologizing for America’s greatness like it is something of which to be ashamed. He claims to greatly admire JFK while at the same time trying to destroy the country JFK fought for so boldly.

Shame on you Mr. Obama! There is nothing wrong with being the best, with greatness, with winning! Listen to a truly great patriotic President!
