Fwd: Global Islamism: Prospects for 2014







Global Islamism: Prospects for 2014

Posted By Majid Rafizadeh On December 27, 2013

Thanks to the Obama administration's uninformed and flimsy foreign policy decisions, the year 2013 has distinctively been a blessing for the independent Islamist parties and fundamentalist Islamic governments throughout the Middle East and the world. Although it is somewhat difficult to predict what will happen in 2014 regarding the Islamists movements and prominent challenges within that (along with Iran's nuclear ambitions), several issues can be projected based on the trends and polices carried out in 2013.

Firstly, the foreign and domestic policies carried out by the Obama administration have led to several key trends.  In 2013, Islamists and fundamentalists affiliated with Al-Qaeda and other Islamists parties have gained an unprecedented level of power, organization, and coordination, particularly across the Middle East and Africa. In Syria, for example, the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), has emerged as among the most powerful jihadi groups. This particular Islamist group, which seeks to rule Syria and the Levant just as the Taliban did in Afghanistan (along with fighting against infidels), has become more centralized through obtaining a unified command-and-control structure, ideologically and politically.

Reportedly, this Islamist party— which has been behind thousands of beheadings, in many cases proudly beheading people and showing it on videos— is advocating for the systematic genocide of Shi'ite Muslims or others who are "damaging Mohammed's legacy" in perpetrating their beliefs. Currently, ISIL is the most powerful oppositional group in Syria, even overshadowing the Free Syrian Army and other rebels. It is argued that many of the arms sent to the Free Syrian Army were actually obtained by several Islamist groups, including ISIL. In late 2013, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights labeled the Al Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams as "the strongest group in Northern Syria."

Beheading ordinary people, taking videos (such as the reported beheading of a young Christian girl in this widespread video, or others as seen in this video), targeting non-Muslims (primarily Christians), raping women, and kidnapping non-Muslims have become daily practice in several Muslim countries, carried out by either independent Islamist groups or by those who have recently gained control of the sovereignty of the state.

According to an Amnesty International report this week, Islamist militants are perpetrating "a shocking catalogue of abuses" conducted in secret jails, including torture, flogging, and killings after summary trials. Amnesty International added that, "Those abducted and detained by ISIL include children as young as eight who are held together with adults in the same cruel and inhuman conditions." Despite all the atrocities and brutalities committed by the ISIL and other Isalmist groups, recent reports from various credible news outlets including Reuters indicate that the Obama administration has attempted to reach out to these Islamist groups, with the Islamists rejecting the administration's overtures. Do these attempts empower and embolden these Islamist groups to further carry out their atrocities and barbarity?

A turning point and tremendous achievement for the Islamists has been the nuclear deal struck with Iran, thanks to President Obama's efforts. The Ayatollahs, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and the Iranian leaders will receive about $7 billion worth of sanctions relief on sectors including its metal industry, the sanctions relief can be accomplished by an executive order by the Obama administration, without the need to appeal to Congress.

In return for this sanctions relief, Iran is not giving any concessions to rollback its program; Tehran is not going to dismantle its nuclear infrastructure. The Islamic Republic will not decrease the number of its centrifuges, currently about 19,000 (just a few thousands below the needed amount to created a nuclear bomb). In addition, Iranian leaders will not close any of the nation's nuclear sites. Iran will not even halt its nuclear enrichment. In fact, the Islamic Republic of Iran will continue enriching uranium.

In addition, while the Obama administration still supports the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the Islamist party of Al-Nahda in Tunisia and other Islamist parties that have recently gained power, with billions of American dollars, the persecution of non-Muslims has reached an unprecedented level.

If the current foreign policy moves by the Obama administration continue on, 2014 may likely mark other groundbreaking and exceptional turning points for fundamentalists and Islamists in the region and across the world. The balance of power has already considerably shifted in favor of the Islamists in the region in 2013. They have been capable of remobilizing, organizing, and fossilizing their establishment, ideology and power.

If this trend continues, Iran is more likely to declare itself as the first ideologically-Islamist nuclear-armed state. Furthermore, ISIL will obtain greater territorial, organizational, and political gains in the region, possibly fulfilling their objectives of obtaining sovereignty in Syria. This reminds us of a reiteration of history, where the Taliban and Al Qaeda created a similar centralized state, later implementing their goal by committing the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The other Islamists groups in the region will also continue gaining power, growing, becoming more centralized, organized, and coordinated through the current foreign policies that are being carried out.

Fwd: DHS Insider Gives Final Warning by Douglas Hagmann (yikes!)

DHS Insider Gives Final Warning

Friday, December 27, 2013 10:51

By Douglas J.  Hagmann

27 December 2013: Under the cover and amid the distraction of the Christmas bustle, I had my last "official" contact with a source inside the Department of Homeland Security known as "Rosebud" in my writings. My source is leaving his position, retiring along with numerous others choosing to leave this bureaucratic monstrosity. For this contact, my source took unprecedented measures to be certain that our contact was far off the radar of prying government eyes and ears. I was stunned at the lengths he employed, and even found myself somewhat annoyed by the inconvenience that his cloak-and-dagger approach caused. It was necessary, according to my source, because all department heads under FEMA and DHS are under orders to identify anyone disclosing any information for termination and potential criminal prosecution.  

 

"DHS is like a prison environment, complete with prison snitches," he said, referring to the search for leaks and leakers. And the warden is obsessed. Ask anyone in DHS. No one trusts anyone else and whatever sources might be left are shutting up. The threats that have been made far exceed anything I've ever seen. Good people are afraid for their lives and the lives of their families. We've all been threatened. They see the writing on the wall and are leaving. It's not a joke and not hype."

The following is a narrative from my source, prefaced with the instructions to "take it or leave it," and "disregard it at your own peril." He added that it's now up to each American to act on the information themselves or suffer the consequences. "I've resigned myself to the fact that most [Americans] will never be convinced of the reality that is taking place right in front of them."

The plan explained

"According to every internal document I've seen and read, and from the few people I've spoken with who understand what's going on, preparations have been finalized to respond to a crisis of unprecedented magnitude within the United States. The response will include the use of lethal force against U.S. citizens under the instructions of Barack Obama."  But why?

"'It's the economy, stupid,'" he began, paraphrasing a campaign slogan coined by James Carville for Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign.  "Just as I disclosed in our first meeting, the crisis will be rooted in an economic collapse. I told you last year, at a time when gold and silver were setting record highs, one specific indicator that time is very short. It is the final 'smack down' of the metals, gold and silver, that will presage the orchestrated economic collapse that is being planned by the bankers of Wall Street. Everybody needs to understand that this is a deliberate collapse of the U.S. economy with the oversight of the White House and the full knowledge of the Justice Department.  Everyone seems to be waiting for some big, history making event that will signal the start of the collapse. The fact is that the collapse has already started. It's incremental, like a snowball rolling down a hill. It gets bigger and rolls faster. Well, this snowball is well on its way down the hill."

"I don't mean to sound repetitive, by I can't stress this enough. Contrary to what you hear, we're already in an economic collapse, except that most people haven't a clue. The 'big bang' comes at the end, when people they wake up one morning and can't log in to their bank accounts, can't use their ATM cards, and find out that their private pension funds and other assets have been confiscated," he stated.

"I've seen documentation of multiple scenarios created outside of DHS. Different plans and back-up plans. Also, please understand that I deliberately used the word 'created,' as this is a completely manufactured event.  In the end it won't be presented that way, which is extremely important for everyone to understand. What is coming will be blamed on some unforeseen event out of everyone's control, that few saw coming or thought would actually happen. Then, another event will take place concurrent with this event, or immediately after it, to confuse and compound an already explosive situation." I asked for specifics.

"As I said, there are several scenarios and I don't know them all. I know one calls for a cyber-attack by an external threat, which will then be compounded by something far removed from everyone's own radar. But it's all a ruse, or a pretext. The threat is from within," he stated. "Before people can regain their footing, a second event will be triggered." Again, I asked for specifics.

"I've seen one operational plan that refers to the federal government's response to a significant terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Information at these levels is compartmentalized. I don't have specifics, just plans for the response. The response will be controls and restrictions on travel, business, and every aspect of our lives, especially gun ownership and speech that incites people against the government. I guess some people would call it Martial Law, and they would not be incorrect. But understand that this will be a process deployed in stages. How quickly of a process remains to be seen."

The mechanics explained

As I said, people continue to look for something big to happen first, followed by a militaristic response by the federal government against U.S. citizens. Based on what I've seen, I don't believe it will happen this way, although there is one unthinkable exception. That exception would involve a 'decapitation' of our leadership, but I've seen nothing even remotely suggestive of that. But I've heard and even read articles where that is mentioned. Frankly, though, that's always been a threat. I suppose that if the leadership is deemed useless, or becomes a liability to the larger agenda in some manner,  it could happen. The precedent exists. Let's pray that it's not the case now."

"I don't think anyone except the initiated few know the precise series of events or the exact timing, just a general overview and an equally general time period. I think we're in that period now, as DHS has their planned responses finalized. Also, the metals are important because it's real money, not Ponzi fiat currency. The U.S. has no inventory of gold, so the prices are manipulated down to cause a sell-off of the physical assets. China is on a buying spree of gold, and other countries want their inventory back. The very people causing the prices to drop are the ones who are also buying the metals at fire sale prices. They will emerge extremely wealthy when the prices rise after the U.S. currency becomes wallpaper. A little research will identify who these people and organizations are."

"I'd like to add a bit of perspective that might help explain the events as I described. Do you remember former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announcing that the Pentagon was unable to account for $2.3 trillion in the defense budget? That was on September 10, 2001, the day before the attacks of 9/11. Some suggest that 9/11 was  orchestrated, in part to cover up the missing money, which is ludicrous. The result, however, was that suddenly the accounting issue took a back seat because of the attacks. The result will be the same. That's a perfect example of the mechanics of what we are about to experience. It's going to take years to sort out, and when it's finally sorted out, the damage will have long been done."

"Please note a few final things. The relationship that exists between DHS today and the executive branch is well beyond alarming. DHS and other organizations have become the private army of the Oval Office. The NSA, and I've got contacts there, is taking orders from the Oval Office. The IRS is under the virtual control of the Oval Office in a manner that would make Nixon cower. Even though all roads appear to lead to the Oval Office, they lead through the Oval Office. It's not just Obama, but the men behind him, the people who put him there. The people who put him there are the ones who created him." I asked who created him.

"First, ask yourself why there was such an all out effort to marginalize anyone talking about Obama's eligibility in 2008. Even so-called conservatives pundits fell for the lie that such questions were nothing more than a diversion. They were following a specific drumbeat. That should tell every rational adult that he is a creation of the globalists who have no allegiance to any political party. He is the product of decades of planning, made for this very time in our history. He was selected to oversee the events I just disclosed. Who has that ability? He's a product of our own intelligence agencies working with the globalists. He should be exhibit 'A' to illustrate the need to enforce the Logan Act. Need I say more?"

As often said by another of my sources, the U.S. is a captured operation. The lie is bigger than most people realize or are willing to confront. That is, until there is no other option. By then, it might be too late.

Fwd: 2014: A Bad Year for the Left?







Hope springs eternal.

B

2014: A Bad Year for the Left?

Posted By Matthew Vadum On December 27, 2013

Most political indicators point to a terrible 2014 for American leftism amidst an auspicious resurgence of conservatism throughout the nation.

As Americans continue to suffer in the weak Obama-era economy and as their anxiety over President Obama's hated health care program grows, an electoral tsunami appears to be in the offing.

Americans have never bought into President Obama's contention that income inequality was what he called "the defining challenge of our time." The AP-Times Square New Year's Eve Poll conducted by GfK shows under 1 percent considered that issue the most important news story of 2013. Topping the list of issues was the implementation of Obamacare which was deemed the number one issue in 2013 by 26 percent of respondents. The next-highest ranked issues were identified as the "death of Nelson Mandela" and the "federal government's budget troubles: sequestration, the fiscal cliff and the government shutdown," both weighing in at a mere 8 percent each.

Obama's approval ratings continue to drop and Americans now consider big, overweening government to be the biggest threat to the nation. An astounding 72 percent of Gallup respondents now believe that big government poses a greater threat to the U.S. than big business or big labor, a record high since Gallup started asking the question almost a half century ago. "(The findings) may be partly a reaction to an administration that favors the use of government to solve problems," the Gallup organization said in a quaint understatement.

Democratic strategists who say that the public is warming up to Obama and Obamacare  are in denial. Millions of Americans, largely in the individual marketplace, have lost their health insurance because of the misnamed Affordable Care Act. Next year tens of millions of Americans will lose their employer-sponsored health coverage as Obamacare works its mischief on the nation's health care system. The continuing catastrophe that is Obamacare will be the political gift that keeps on giving all the way to the midterm congressional elections in November. (To boot, a slew of new Obamacare taxes takes effect in days.)

Republicans are pummeling Democrats in CNN's generic congressional ballot by 49 percent to 44 percent after Obamacare implementation began on Oct. 1. As The Hill newspaper observes,

"That's a huge 13-point swing from October, when Democrats had the edge following the government shutdown. At that point, Democrats were up by 50 percent to 42 percent on a generic ballot test. The new numbers are the latest bad polling news for Democrats, indicating the GOP has a chance to pick up House seats and win control of the Senate."

With critical midterm elections now less than a year away, and assuming that present trends will continue, Republicans seem certain to take over Congress. Republicans are poised to retain majority control of the House of Representatives and are also on-track to easily take over the Senate. The only question is how big the GOP Senate majority will be.

This does not, however, mean that 2014 will be the year in which the leftist project is finally discredited, as some high-profile conservative pundits gripped by an irrational triumphalism have predicted in recent weeks. Obamacare's failures will not somehow finish off progressivism. The programs and fallout from the abysmal failures known as the New Deal and the Great Society are still with us and yet a large segment of the population continues to believe that redistributionism works. When and if Obamacare collapses, leftists will simply start over again, this time pressing for the single-payer universal health care system that they've always wanted.

Of course, Republicans could still snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

For example, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) continue to send out signals that they intend to capitulate to the open-borders lobby next year. Boehner and McConnell support a politically unpopular amnesty for potentially tens of millions of illegal aliens, which is the key policy component of so-called comprehensive immigration reform.

They do so in the mistaken belief that flooding the labor market and rewarding illegal behavior will somehow make left-leaning voters and immigrants on a path to citizenship fans of the Grand Old Party.

Passing amnesty legislation would seriously undermine conservative grassroots support for Republican candidates.

But that doesn't mean the congressional GOP won't do it.

Fwd: "Most Wanted" fugitive lists proliferate, vary by agency







Published on HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com (http://hamptonroads.com)

"Most Wanted" fugitive lists proliferate, vary by agency

NORFOLK

You've probably seen the posters, or at least heard the term:

"The FBI's Ten Most Wanted."

It's been part of the American nomenclature for more than six decades. And it's become so popular, countless other federal and state agencies have followed suit.

The Marshals Service has its own "Most Wanted" list, as does the Secret Service and the Postal Service. Homeland Security has two.

Even the Environmental Protection Agency has joined in, although it calls it a "fugitive" list.

Do you know the whereabouts of Carlos and Alessandro Giordano, a father-son duo charged with illegally importing Italian-made Alfa Romeos that didn't meet U.S. emissions standards?

How about Peter Martin Kuhn, the former CEO of a Nevada mining company charged with illegally dumping contaminated wastewater in California?

The EPA wants to know.

"Environmental crimes are not victimless crimes," Doug Parker, director of the EPA's Criminal Investigation Division, said in a statement. "When a violator chooses to 'cut corners' and break our nation's laws, it can have serious consequences for the environment and public health."

The lists are primarily marketing tools, sometimes maintained and updated by the agencies' public information offices.

Most include fugitives' names, mug shots and personal information, as well as descriptions of pending charges.

There is little to no crossover. Each list concentrates on slightly different aspects of the law, with Homeland Security's two lists focusing on human trafficking and immigration, the Secret Service focusing on identity theft and fraud, and the EPA focusing on environmental crimes.

The FBI launched its list on March 14, 1950. The idea stemmed from a story published by the International News Service about the "toughest guys" the bureau wanted to capture, according to the agency's website.

In the past 63 years, 500 fugitives have made the FBI's list, and 470 of them have been located, the website said.

Parker noted that authorities have captured five of the EPA's most-wanted fugitives since the agency launched its 15-person list in 2008. Two more surrendered.

All lists are not created equal. Helping catch someone on the FBI's list could net a tipster $100,000 or more.

The USPS list offers rewards of $10,000 to $100,000 a person.

Other lists say nothing about rewards.

Texas closes border, stops tide of illegals for 3 weeks

by Dr. Eowyn

Rio Grande border

Brandon Darby reports for Breitbart.com, Dec 7, 2013, that Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst announced a Texas-led three-week effort that he says reduced illegal immigration, smuggling, and human trafficking to a standstill in the Rio Grande River section of the U.S./Mexico border.

Dewhurst said:

"In the Rio Grande Valley sector, nearly nothing moved in those three weeks. We shut it down. We had teams of Texas law enforcement in the brush, high altitude aircraft, gun boats, and more. Our intel revealed that the Gulf cartel was growing frustrated with our three-week effort.

The border issue is just about dollars and cents. This proves Texas can do the job the federal government has refused to do — to invest in the border and shut it down from illegal activities that are hurting Texans and other Americans. Texas will protect our own citizens and other Americans from the criminal gangs that are destabilizing our state and our nation."

The plan, according to Dewhurst, was to do a three-week operation with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) as the tip of the spear. The effort cost approximately $5 million each month. Dewhurst is seeking an additional $60 million to be approved by the State Legislative Budget Board.

Texas has purchased a high-altitude spotter plane that can see six miles into Mexico at night, six new DPS helicopters that can also see at night, and six armored gunboats to patrol the Rio Grande River.

Dewhurst stated, "We started appropriating money to plug the holes that exist in the border. We've allocated hundreds of millions, as a state, since 2008. Nearly 796 million of state money, not a dime federal, has been allocated by the State of Texas to plug the holes in our border. This covers things like over-time for Sheriffs' deputies,  equipment, and Texas Rangers SWAT teams [referring to the elite Texas Rangers, an arm of the DPS].

For six or seven years, I've been calling on our congressional delegation in D.C., we need to at least double, if not triple, the size of our Border Patrol. The federal government is not providing the resources. I've grown convinced over the last year that this administration has no intention of securing the border.

This is just unacceptable. We have a problem and everyone knows it except for the Obama administration and people in high levels of Border Patrol. Organized crime groups in Texas are contracting with Mexican cartels to be their enforcers. The cartels' presence are in all of our major cities. Seven of the eight Mexican cartels operating in Texas are using our state as a staging area for their operations across the U.S."

Illegal immigration is one issue, and we all understand why people want to come here. I'm a strong believer in legal immigration, but not illegal immigration. We have young girls being trafficked as slaves for immoral purposes across our border and through our state. This cannot be allowed.

The bottom line is that we have just shown that we can shut down the border for 'X' number of dollars. We need to find the $5 million per month to make these operations continuous and replicate what we have just accomplished."

Dewhurst concluded the interview by stating, "The State of Texas and our nation deserve better than what we are getting from Washington, D.C. Until they adopt the Texas approach, we will continue to do what's right for Texans and for our state ourselves."

David DewhurstLt. Gov. David Dewhurst

Now if Texas successfully closed its borders and stemmed the tide of illegals and Mexican criminals for three weeks, why can't the federal government?

Answer: Because the POS and his henchman Eric Holder in the "Justice" Department don't want to. That's why.

Nor do the useless Republicans in the useless Congress.
