When a Terrorist is isn’t a Terrorist

The FBI arrested a New York man on a charge of attempting to support ISIS/ISIL. Arafat Nagi is also charged with attempting trying to join the group after traveling to Turkey on two separate occasions.

Prior to that arrest, the FBI busted a Florida man for plotting to set off a backpack bomb at a beach, inspired by ISIS/ISIL. Harlem Suarez’s arrest came after he received what he thought was a working bomb but which was actually a phony device provided by federal agents.

It took the FBI very little time to connect either man to ISIS. Yet, a man named Muhammad opens fired on a military recruiting center, and then a naval reserve center, killing four U.S. Marines and a U.S. Navy sailor and no connection to radical Islam is ‘found?’

Don’t you believe it!

It’s known that the killer Muhammad was studying the online writings of a now dead American-born cleric and leading member of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, who played an important role in encouraging and inspiring attacks inside the U.S. It’s even known that the killer Muhammad started a blog of his own, though it has only two posts.

The first refers to a test designed to, “separate the inhabitants of Paradise from the inhabitants of Hellfire.” In his second post, he claims his fellow Muslims have a “certain understanding of Islam and keep a tunnel vision of what we think Islam is.”

“We ask Allah … to give us a complete understanding of the message of Islam, and the strength the (sic) live by this knowledge, and to know what role we need to play to establish Islam in the world,” the killer Muhammad writes.

It’s even more surreal that the killer Muhammad spent seven-month in Jordan, which has seen the spread of radical Islamic ideas following the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings. And while staying in Jordan, Muhammad lived with his uncle, who’s linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The killer Muhammad also attended the Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga, which is operates with the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), which is an unindicted co-conspirator in the U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation case. NAIT is also operates the mosques attended by the Boston marathon bombers, some of the 9/11 hijackers and the two Phoenix, Arizona men who attacked the ‘Draw Muhammad’ event in Texas.

Maybe Obama’s FBI wants us to believe the killer Muhammad’s actions are yet another case of a Southern-Confederate-flag-waving-gun-toting-racist on a murderous rampage.

Progressives put up Planned Parenthood Smoke Screen

An anti-abortion group reportedly hacked Planned Parenthood, the women’s health organization that has been under scrutiny for recently released videos showing officials from the group casually discussing the sale of aborted fetal tissue. The hackers reportedly obtained data such as employees’ email addresses.

Dawn Laguens, executive vice president and chief experience officer of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) said they were investigating the breach.

“Extremists have broken laws, harassed our doctors and patients, produced hack videos, and now are claiming to have committed a gross invasion of privacy — one that, if true, could potentially put our staff members at risk,” she said.

But this is a smoke screen — after all, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said last week that the videos “raise questions,” while he largely defended the organization.

“These politically motivated videos raises questions, but nothing I’ve seen indicates that Planned Parenthood violated federal law,” Reid said.

Yet in a third video, recently leased by the Center for Medical Progress, undercover footage catches the Vice President and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) in Denver, Colorado, Dr. Savita Ginde, commenting, “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”

Interestingly enough, PPRM is one of the largest and wealthiest Planned Parenthood affiliates operating in Nevada, Reid’s home state. In March of 2015, they issued a press release on their website thanking Reid.

“Nevada women and families are healthier and have better access to the care they need and deserve because of Senator Reid’s leadership,” said Vicki Cowart, president and CEO of PPRM.

In the same release, Cecile Richards, PPFA president states, “Thanks to Senator Reid’s leadership, women across the country have access to no-copay birth control, better access to affordable, high-quality health care, and the many other benefits of the Affordable Care Act.”

However, in the same newly released video, a technician who worked for a company that partnered with Planned Parenthood to harvest baby parts said there’s “incentive to try and get the hard stuff ‘cause you’re going to get more money.”

“For whatever we could procure, they would get a certain percentage,” said Holly O’Donnell, identified as a former procurement technician for Placerville, California’s StemExpress, “The main nurse was always trying to make sure we got our specimens. No one else really cared, but the main nurse did because she knew that Planned Parenthood was getting compensated.”

Meanwhile Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pushed through a measure that will fund Planned Parenthood in its entirety. Over the last 10 years, Planned Parenthood has gotten more than $4 billion in state and federal government aid.

As the website, ‘Red State,’ rightfully points out: “The GOP is not on our side.”

Progressive Republicans Attack Ted Cruz

Texas senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of being a liar, saying Republicans in charge of both houses of Congress haven’t changed things “one iota” because both parties serve the “Washington cartel.” Cruz made his speech after McConnell added the re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank to the highway-funding bill, then prevented senators from adding more amendments.

The Export-Import Bank’s charter expired June 30 when Congress refused to renew it. Opponents say it’s a major corporate welfare snow-job, with nearly 90 percent of the bank’s funding going to Boeing, General Electric and Caterpillar.

Cruz said that his vote for trade promotion authority, also known as fast track, was cast on the basis that McConnell assured him there was not a deal made with the Democrats to support the controversial Export-Import bank. Cruz said he asked McConnell the question during a private Senate Republican lunch.

“I stood up and I asked the majority leader very directly, what was the deal that was just cut on TPA (Trade Promotion Authority) and was there a deal for the Export-Import Bank? It was a direct question. I asked the majority leader in front of all the Republican senators. The majority leader was visibly angry with me that I would ask such a question, and the majority leader looked at me and said, ‘There is no deal, there is no deal, there is no deal,’” Cruz said. “Like St. Peter he repeated it three times.”

Besides pointing out McConnell’s lie, Cruz accused McConnell of operating as a “team” with Minority Leader Senator Harry Reid who also blocked debate: “Now the Republican leader is behaving like the senior senator from Nevada.”

He added that since Republicans have controlled both houses of Congress, they have passed the Obama-supported “cromnibus” bill, funded Obamacare, funded his executive immigration actions and approved Loretta Lynch as attorney general.

Senator Orrin Hatch defended McConnell, claiming Cruz’s speech was out of line: “Squabbling and sanctimony may be tolerated in other venues and perhaps on the campaign trail, but they have no place among colleagues in the United States Senate.”

Hatch’s reading of Senate Rule 19:2 — “No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator,” — was a warning to Cruz.

Cruz fought back against charges saying, “It is entirely consistent with decorum and with the nature of this body traditionally as the world’s greatest deliberative body to speak the truth.”

In the end. all Hatch did is prove Cruz’s point about the “Washington cartel.”

U.S. Citizenship is Now Negotiable

In yet another step towards “fundamental transformation,” President Obama’s given an exemption to any newly naturalized citizen, who takes the oath of allegiance, to omit the lines requiring them to bear arms, or do non-combat duties, on behalf of the U.S. when required by law, based on religious belief or conscientious objection. Furthermore, objectors don’t have to be a member of any church or organization or provide any proof or attestation of these beliefs qualify for exemption.

In April, the Task Force on New Americans submitted a plan to Obama that identified ways to weave naturalized Americans into their communities, such as encouraging new Americans to take part in volunteer work.

The principles embodied in the Oath are in Section 337(a) in the Immigration and Nationality Act, which provides that all applicants shall take an oath that incorporates the substance of the following:

Support the Constitution; Renounce all allegiance to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which the applicant was before a subject or citizen; Support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Furthermore it requires the person taking the oath bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; or do non-combatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; or do work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law.

Unfortunately, starting July 21, 2015, new guidance (PA-2015-001) in the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Policy Manual clarifies the eligibility requirements for changes to the Oath of Allegiance: “Candidates for citizenship normally declare that they will “bear arms on behalf of the United States” and “perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States” when required by the law.”

“A candidate may be eligible to exclude these two clauses based on religious training and belief or a conscientious objection,” it continues. “The new guidance clarifies that a candidate: May be eligible for modifications based on religious training and belief, or conscientious objection arising from a deeply held moral or ethical code.”

“Is not required to belong to a specific church or religion, follow a particular theology or belief, or to have had religious training in order to qualify,” the new guidance policy declares, adding, “May submit, but is not required to provide, an attestation from a religious or other type of organization, as well as other evidence to establish eligibility.”

Newly naturalized citizen are still required to affirm, “so help me God,” – at least for now.

Addressing Reno’s U.S. Flag Problem

After writing a fairly scathing commentary on the fact that the City of Reno had a the Gay Pride flag flying over city hall instead of the American Flag, I reached out to Mayor Hillary Schieve with the hope of finding some answers about why this would have happened in the first place. What following is our brief Facebook ‘conversation:’

Dear Ms. Schieve:
If you didn’t authorize the American flag’s removal and replacement of the Gay Pride flag, and if the city council had nothing to do with it, who did and are they going to be disciplined?
Respectfully,
Tom Darby

Hi Tom.
The buck stops with me and I am taking full responsibility since I represent the city. All too often politicians do not apologize and point fingers. I can assure you this will never happen again and sincerely feel horrible about any disrespect. This should have never happened and it is truly offensive.
Again I apologize and have addressed it with city staff on the matter. I just can’t say sorry enough.
Thank you again for being incredibly respectful in a situation where I would understand if you were not!! Hope you have a much better day than I am having!!
Happiness & good health to you and yours!!
Hillary

Thank you very much for addressing this matter to me. I know you didn’t have to, so I appreciate your taking time to let me know what is happening. Stay well.

I am enforcing very strict flag policies at the city and they will take effect immediately. Just can’t tolerate something like this ever again. Take care and thank you Tom!

At this point I’m satisfied that the problem has been taken care of, but I’d still like to know who did it and what sort of disciplinary action is going to be taken to prevent such a thing as this from happening ever again. I will give it sometime before I ask again.

Former P.O.W. Makes Headlines Again

The U.S. Army soldier released in a prisoner swap in Afghanistan for five Taliban detainees, ended up in the middle of a pot raid last week. Bowe Bergdahl’s currently awaiting a possible court-martial on charges of desertion for abandoning his post in Afghanistan and for misbehavior before the enemy that endangered his unit.

According to the Anderson Valley Advertiser, Bergdahl was an “unexpected visitor” at a Mendocino County farm. Captain Greg Van Patten with the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office said they detained  Bergdahl, but he was “determined not to be connected to the operation, at least there was no evidence to suggest he was involved.”

When they met Bergdahl, Van Patten said he identified himself while the sheriff’s office reached out to the Department of Defense. The agency confirmed Bergdahl was on leave, and asked for their help in getting him back.

Sheriff’s deputies later drove Bergdahl “to a halfway point,” near Santa Rosa, California, and returned to his duty station by military personnel.

“U.S. Army North was contacted by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office on July 21 regarding an incident within their jurisdiction in which Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl was present,” Lt. Colonel Jason Shropshire told the Army Times.

An Article 32 investigation into his case’s scheduled to start September 17. The investigation is to decide if there’s enough evidence to merit a court-martial and is often compared to a civilian grand jury inquiry.

The desertion charge falls under Article 85 of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice, carrying a maximum punishment of five years confinement, reduction to the rank of E-1, forfeiture of all pay and allowances and a dishonorable discharge. The misbehavior charge falls under Article 99 of the UCMJ and carries a maximum punishment of confinement for life, reduction in rank to E-1, forfeiture of pay and allowances and a dishonorable discharge.

Bergdahl’s assigned to a desk job at Fort Sam Houston, when he should be locked up in the brig.

Reno City Hall’s New Flag

This is how far-left Nevada’s City of Reno has moved.  Instead of the American flag flying over city hall, somebody hoisted the Gay Pride flag in its stead.

11813420_10153232574078001_8959416117534823702_n

Both the mayor, Hillary Schieve, an ardent supporter of homosexual marriage — having lead an activist march through Reno and later attended a Gay Pride Parade in San Francisco — along with the city council have denied responsibility, apologized for the action and have since made certain the American flag’s returned to its rightful place.

“I was alerted tonight that the US flag was not flying over City Hall. I can most certainly see why people would be offended or upset. I did not order that the American flag be taken down. I have asked that the flag be put back immediately! It was certainly not the city’s intention to be disrespectful and never should have happened. I will take full responsibility since I represent this city. I have family members who have served and I know the importance of the ultimate sacrifice they have made for our country. I am very proud to be an American and we should always support our troops and veterans no matter what. I too am offended and there is no excuse for this. Those who have served deserve the highest respect for their service. My sincerest apologies!!!” Schieve wrote on Facebook.

Taking a personal position as an advocate for one thing or another is fine, but to disrespect the 98% of Renoite’s who don’t give a damn one way or the other about ‘who loves who’ is stepping way out-of-bounds since city hall’s funded by a majority of citizen who also value what the American flag represents — not only to Reno, but our nation.  Somebody needs to be fired.

This shit has to come to a stop!
