It is crazy to educate our enemies, be they Red Chinese or Islamic. America has more enemies than anybody, but Washington pretends otherwise to please business and university interests. Our national security is severely endangered by short-term economic choices, like colleges welcoming full-tuition students from dangerous nations like Saudi Arabia and Red China.
Here’s the Washington Post article from Tuesday that stirred up the interest in China’s theft of America’s military secrets:
Designs for many of the nation’s most sensitive advanced weapons systems have been compromised by Chinese hackers, according to a report prepared for the Pentagon and to officials from government and the defense industry.
Among more than two dozen major weapons systems whose designs were breached were programs critical to U.S. missile defenses and combat aircraft and ships, according to a previously undisclosed section of a confidential report prepared for Pentagon leaders by the Defense Science Board.
Experts warn that the electronic intrusions gave China access to advanced technology that could accelerate the development of its weapons systems and weaken the U.S. military advantage in a future conflict.
The Defense Science Board, a senior advisory group made up of government and civilian experts, did not accuse the Chinese of stealing the designs. But senior military and industry officials with knowledge of the breaches said the vast majority were part of a widening Chinese campaign of espionage against U.S. defense contractors and government agencies.
The significance and extent of the targets help explain why the Obama administration has escalated its warnings to the Chinese government to stop what Washington sees as rampant cybertheft. Continue reading this article
Imagine if in 1960 (at the height of the Cold War) the USSR had proposed to build a massive “cultural center” somewhere in America where commies could hang out and conspire. It never would have happened.
But when the project represents Islam, the true nature of being a totalitarian ideology bent on world domination is disguised by the protected category of religion. Therefore, an enemy installation called a mosque generally gets little opposition.
Below, an illustration of the $100 million mega-mosque and associated Islamist structures, to be built in Maryland.
The mosques are our barracks,
The domes our helmets,
The minarets our bayonets,
And the faithful our soldiers.
The Maryland mega-mosque is meant to be a territorial marker, showing Islam’s increasing power over America, just like the proposed Ground Zero Mosque in Manhattan.
Every Muslim immigrant is a potential warrior for jihad, like the Tsarnaev Boston bombers, who appeared assimilated, but only superficially. America should learn from the European disaster and stop diverse Muslim immigration before it’s too late.
The building of this center takes Turkey’s “outreach” in America out of the realm of the subtle.
The government of Turkey is building a 15-acre, $100 million mega-mosque in Lanham, Maryland. Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan visited the site on May 15 as part of his official visit to the U.S.. The state of Maryland was officially represented at the event by its Secretary of State John McDonough.
The event was also attended by the leaders of two U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entities.
The mega-mosque is called the Turkish American Culture and Civilization Center and, according to the Muslim Link, it “will likely become the largest and most striking examples of Islamic architecture in the western hemisphere” when it is finished in 2014. The Muslim Link explicitly says it is “a project of the government of Turkey.” Continue reading this article
The Associated Press has a cheerful pro-amnesty item for Memorial Day weekend, noting how the 1986 legalization allowed Mexican farmworkers to get out of the fields and into better jobs. AP’s Mexican hero, Paulino Mejia, moved from agricultural picking to construction, a field once prized by Americans for its decent pay until immigrants and illegal aliens took it over in affected areas.
[. . .] “They’ll be able to immediately apply for much better jobs than they currently have,” Sessions warned of illegal immigrants set to join the pathway to citizenship. “Maybe they were working at a restaurant part time. Now they’re going to be truck drivers, heavy-equipment operators competing at the factories and plants and we’ve got an unemployment rate that’s very high.” [. . .]
Many amnesty demanders claim that legalization won’t change much because the workers already have jobs in the US. But the problem for citizens is that many newly legalized workers will want to upgrade to a better gig and will be competing with Americans in a very limited job market.
Another upbeat success story in the piece was the farmworker who left the fields to go to college. He is now a certified interpreter of Mixteco, an indigenous language of Mexico. The only use for that obscure skill might be as a court translator for Mixteco-speaking criminals. But the AP thinks it’s a swell example of immigration success.
MADERA, Calif. — After Paulino Mejia crossed the border illegally into the U.S. in 1980, he picked grapes, peaches and other crops in California’s agricultural heartland, lived in crowded rental housing, hid from immigration agents and sent paychecks to family in his native Mexico.
His life, however, changed in 1986, when Congress agreed to allow immigrants who were in the country illegally to get legal status — with a special provision that focused on farmworkers.
Mejia then stopped living in fear. He left agriculture to join a construction company that hired only legal workers, sent his two daughters to college and bought a house in Madera, near Fresno, instead of wiring money to Mexico.
“Immigration reform changed my life. It gave my family freedom,” he said. “It allowed us to reach the American dream.”
With Congress considering a new immigration proposal that includes a speedier process to legal status for farmworkers, experts say the best indicator of how such an overhaul would play out is to look at the fate of the generation of farmworkers legalized over two decades ago.
In Central California, the nation’s agricultural powerhouse and a region with one of the highest poverty levels, the 1986 law had a profound impact on people like Mejia.
And like him, many other farmworkers legalized after 1986 have left the fields, moving to jobs in packing houses, warehouses and factories, attending college and working as professionals. And many who remained in agriculture became supervisors, crew leaders or labor contractors.
As their wages soared, they bought cars, houses and trailer homes — and many airplane tickets to visit family south of the border.
Workers, advocates and experts say immigration reform could again lift many farmworkers, one of the poorest groups of immigrants, out of poverty. But this time, they say, legalization’s impact would be much bigger: in 1986, many farmworkers were single men; today most have families. Continue reading this article
The President has mostly kept out of the mega-amnesty/immigration tsunami debate, since his presence is considered unhelpful by open-borders extremists — which is curious when you think about it. But on Tuesday Obama signaled his support for lawbreaking foreigners to become future Democrats by welcoming a batch of well scrubbed DREAMer kiddies to the White House for a photo op.
The White House issued a laudatory press release about the young foreigners:
This morning, the President and the Vice President met in the Oval Office with young immigrants who received deferred action and with the siblings and spouses of undocumented immigrants. This meeting was an important opportunity for the President and the Vice President to meet with families who are directly affected by our nation’s broken immigration system.
The President and the Vice President were moved by the stories of courage and determination of these young immigrants and their families. The Dreamers shared how their lives have been positively affected by the deferred action process and emphasized that they and their families need a permanent solution that will allow them to fully contribute to the country they call home. [. . .]
Meanwhile, the President has neglected to meet with union representatives of border control officers who can report on enforcement issues from the front lines, as pointed out by a letter from Senator Jeff Sessions and Rep Bob Goddlatte. But Obama seems unconcerned with the border enforcement which amnesty enthusiasts have promised will be front and center in the legislation (just like 1986) along with the nearly immediate work permits for millions of foreign job thieves.
Two key Republicans have blasted President Obama for not meeting with a union representing 7,000 immigration and customs officers.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (Va.) and Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.) in a letter to Obama argue his administration is shunning concerns the group has over immigration reform.
The National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council has warned Congress that immigration reform, one of the president’s highest priorities, will cause a surge of illegal immigration.
The administration has normally been responsive to the concerns of labor but the immigration and customs officers’ union has been unsuccessful in getting any White House attention.
“We write today to express concern over the exclusion of immigration and customs enforcement officers and their representatives from the negotiations surrounding immigration reform,” Goodlatte and Sessions wrote in a letter dated May 23.
“To be effective any immigration reform bill must heed the warnings from our federal immigration agents,” they wrote. “Unfortunately, far from being included in the process, ICE officers have been shut out and have even had their day-to-day operations handcuffed by [Department of Homeland Security] officials to the point of being unable to carry out their sworn duties.” Continue reading this article
Canada’s SunTV broadcaster Michael Coren and Jihadwatch’s Robert Spencer discussed the statement the London beheader made immediately after he murdered British soldier Lee Rigby. The killer was fairly calm after just hacking a man to death with a meat cleaver, presumably because he felt justified by the commandments of the Koran to kill the perceived enemies of Islam.
JihadWatch has posted the text for what is apparently killer Michael Adebolajo’s full rant. Many media reports edited the killer’s words to lessen the Muslim references. The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, sought to deny the religious aspect, saying, “It is completely wrong to blame this killing on Islam.” Prime Minister David Cameron declared the murder was a “betrayal of Islam.”
But the full statement makes clear how Islam was the entire motivation for the murder.
The only reason we have killed this man today is because Muslims are dying daily by British soldiers. And this British soldier is one. It is an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. By Allah, we swear by the almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone. So what if we want to live by the Shari’a in Muslim lands? Why does that mean you must follow us and chase us and call us extremists and kill us? Rather you lot are extreme. You are the ones that when you drop a bomb you think it hits one person? Or rather your bomb wipes out a whole family? This is the reality. By Allah if I saw your mother today with a buggy I would help her up the stairs. This is my nature. But we are forced by the Qur’an, in Sura At-Tawba, through many ayah in the Qu’ran, we must fight them as they fight us. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. I apologise that women had to witness this today but in our lands women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your governments, they don’t care about you. You think David Cameron is going to get caught in the street when we start busting our guns? You think politicians are going to die? No, it’s going to be the average guy, like you and your children. So get rid of them. Tell them to bring our troops back so can all live in peace. So leave our lands and we can all live in peace. That’s all I have to say. [in Arabic:] Allah’s peace and blessings be upon you.
In Sweden, five days (so far) of Muslim rioting has caused some in the socialist country to wonder about the wisdom of welcoming so many unfriendly immigrants from violent societies.
Political correctness causes harm to the thought process, but there is some progress here. For years, we have read about unspecified “youths” burning down the town. But now, at least RT News, a Russian outfit, is describing the mass arsonists as “immigrant teenagers.” Progress!
Perhaps in another decade the press will admit that Muslim immigrants are the problem.
The video following is improved by the remarks of Lars Hedegaard, the publisher of Dispatch International, a pro-free-speech newspaper in Denmark that prints the unpleasant truth about diversity rather than the government-approved PC swill of the mainstream press. Hedegaard is an expert on Muslim violence, having narrowly escaped a Muslim assassination attempt. He thinks the efforts of Sweden to create a utopian multicultural society have not been successful at all, as shown by the recent outburst of violence.
Interestingly, another video from RT News reported that the Muslims riot for the money, not some vague incident that offended them. Yep, they have the socialist do-gooder government figured out to a T, that the result of a violent upheaval will be lots more welfare spending piled on to solve the problem of alienated youth. Of course, that response will just engender more rioting.
Youth gang riots in the Swedish capital Stockholm have entered fifth straight night. Hundreds of mostly immigrant teenagers tore through the suburbs, smashing windows and burning cars in the country’s worst outbreak of violence in years.
At least six vehicles were torched throughout the city late on Thursday while the police called for reinforcements from other Swedish cities bracing for further unrest.
Firefighters were putting out flames that engulfed several cars and a school in immigrant-dominated areas of Stockholm.
The night before, the fire brigades were called to some 90 different blazes. On the fourth night of violence, youths torched over 30 cars in 15 neighborhoods along with a restaurant in Skogas, south of Stockholm. Three law enforcement officers were injured, police spokesperson Kjell Lindgren reported.
Stockholm firefighters were busy throughout the night, saying they had “never before seen so many fires raging at the same time.” Some 90 blazes were reported in total, most of them reportedly caused by the rioters. Still, the fourth night of violence was relatively quiet compared to the previous three, RT’s Peter Oliver reported from Stockholm. Continue reading this article
On Wednesday a young British soldier was murdered in broad daylight on a London street in an act of jihad. The bloody-handed killer was anxious to brag about it (in British-sounding English), as shown in the video below:
The black man holding a bloody knife and cleaver apologized to women present for perpetrating such a horrific act, but in “our lands” women have to see such carnage all the time because of western governments, he said. “We swear by almighty Allah that we will never stop fighting you,” he declared.
The ITV reporter called the act “Baghdad-style violence.”
Actually, it is Muslim-style violence, which has come to Britain and elsewhere in the West because of diverse immigration that stupidly welcomes a historic enemy of 1400 years standing.
Shouldn’t America stop Muslim immigration before it’s too late?
In the Senate Gang of Eight’s immigration bill, much attention has been paid to the amnesty aspect, namely rewarding foreign lawbreakers with work permits, the true object of their desire, which is a topic worthy of objection because it turns normal jurisprudence upside down.
However, the legislation includes hugely increased legal immigration, millions more foreigners jammed into the country now and into the future, while population-propelled growth is providing less for the general good and brings many problems.
Meanwhile, here’s a sign of the times from Crowdifornia, arguably the most foreigner-affected state: Los Angeles County is considering adding a development “fee” (a tax in plain English) to mitigate future traffic congestion. Unrestrained growth is no longer seen as desirable in many quarters, but Washington wants to continue piling on.
The area has long been famous for terrible traffic, and the state’s growing population, fueled by immigration, is making it worse. The items listed to be funded by the additional money — some road widening, new traffic signals — don’t sound like they will improve much, but the urge to tax is strong in the once-Golden State.
Developers in Los Angeles County are bracing themselves for a new layer of congestion fees that would add about $1,900 per new home and about $30,000 on a new Trader Joe’s store,
The added fees are being considered as part of a developing Congestion Mitigation Fee Program, 10 years in the making by the county’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority or Metro.
After more than 50 businesses signed a letter opposing the measure, the program suddenly was withdrawn from Wednesday’s Metro Planning and Programming Committee and placed on hold.
“The Board and their staff felt that it being a complex issue, more time is needed by all to fully understand it. It will probably go back to the Board at a later date,” wrote Metro spokesman Rick Jager. Though the May 23 date originally set for board approval also was withdrawn, Jager said the board had not set a new date for consideration.
The program was created in 1990 and was paired with Proposition 111 that raised the state gas tax 9 cents a gallon. The program is required to fund transit projects that will help alleviate traffic congestion caused by new development. If no program is in place, the county and 88 cities are in jeopardy of losing Prop. 111 revenue, about $83 million a year, according to Metro.
Metro had recommended each city charge a minimum fee of $200 per car trip generated by each new development. Under the minimum, Metro estimates the fee would generate up to $767 million over 20 years.
Cities have submitted wish lists containing numerous projects, from lane widenings and new freeway on- and off-ramps to traffic signalization to a $60 million grade separation proposed at a train-street intersection in Baldwin Park. If all 1,700 projects submitted by 88 cities were completed, it would cost $5.1 billion, create 60,200 jobs, and reduce the number of hours drivers sit in traffic by between 6 percent and 38 percent over 20 years, according to Metro.
Development fees are nothing new to many cities. Pasadena and Santa Monica, for example, have a sophisticated system for charging developers for roads, traffic signals, bikeways, etc. Some 22 cities in the county already impose transportation mitigation fees, while 66 cities do not, according to Metro.

From Dallas comes news that the city is being used as a main office by the La Familia Mexican drug cartel. The location is a natural for Mexican drug smugglers to use because of the major highway I-35 running from Laredo on the border to Dallas all the way through the center of America and reaching Duluth on Lake Superior.
Some Dallas residents have been shocked to learn that Mexican organized crime has moved into nice houses in their suburbs. It’s another failure of border enforcement, obviously. Plus, Mexicans are everywhere in Texas, so Spanish-speaking entrepreneurs in the neighborhood would not be that unusual. Mexican cartels benefit hugely by having a sea of US-residing hispanics in which to swim.
Dallas authorities shouldn’t be too surprised however. In 2005 a major north Texas drug bust caused a DEA agent to observe, “Dallas is the new Miami for transiting drugs.”
Should Dallas residents be concerned that a drug war might blow up in their city from some other gang trying to take over the territory? Mexicans treat the US like it’s their turf, so it wouldn’t be surprising if they act the same way they do at home. Mexican gangsters already are fighting over territory in Chicago.
DEA says high-level cartel members now direct drug shipments from Dallas to cities all over the country
Trouble came rolling into town and landed squarely in one Seagoville neighborhood.
One neighbor told NBC 5 Investigates he saw federal agents surround a neighbor’s home and then, a short time later, carry out bags full of cash.
The men that lived at the home were not your average street-level drug dealers.
The current residents of the house showed NBC 5 Investigates a crawlspace hidden in a back closet where the DEA said the cartel hid drugs and money.
According to recently unsealed court records obtained by NBC 5 Investigates, prosecutors say they were members of a high-level cell of La Familia, a violent Mexican drug cartel.
For the Drug Enforcement Administration, the case was one example of a dramatic change they’ve seen in Dallas over the last six years.
Cartels now send trusted members to North Texas to set up what the DEA calls “command and control,” directing drug shipments from Dallas to cities all over the country.
“You name it. There’s no city limits sign for these guys. Wherever they can fit in, they’ll move in, sometimes as normally as a normal family,” said Daniel R. Salter, the acting special agent in charge of the Dallas DEA office. Continue reading this article
Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) gave a speech earlier this month to a Horowitz Freedom Center Texas Weekend in Dallas.
Gohmert is one of the strongest defenders of freedom in Congress. His sometimes-relaxed style can belie his toughness, knowledge and courage (last fall speaking about Obama’s legacy in building a second Ottoman Empire). He has gone after members of the administration for their comfy relationship with hostile Islam, as he did last week when he questioned AG Eric Holder during a hearing [Watch]. The Representative’s request was for Congress to be allowed to see the documents about the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial which were given to the accused contributors to Hamas terrorists but have been kept from the public.
The Congressman is also a defender of American sovereignty who stood with a handful of House conservatives on May 14 to speak against amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. He understands that immigration enforcement is integral to national security, remarking near the end of his Texas talk, “There are consequences to giving citizenship and to letting anybody in.”
Bad consequences, as we saw in the Boston bombing.
Frank Gaffney: I’m very pleased to present to you all tonight a great American, a great Texan, one of my personal heroes and a man I’m very proud to call a great friend, Congressman Louie Gohmert.
Louie Gohmert: Oh, gosh. Thank you. Well, I’m so glad you did that before I talked. That’s really good. Now, I don’t know what you’ll do when I finish.
You’ve heard from three of our best experts earlier today, and then the ultimate expert did the introduction of me tonight. Boy, what a juxtaposition that was. But thank you, Frank, and I appreciate your kind comments. You know, I’m not a household name other than with people that work at the Huffington Post –
– and I tell my family, “Just don’t Google my name. You won’t recognize what you see.”
Back in East Texas, all three networks have stations in my hometown of Tyler, and for a town that small, 85,000, to have all three networks, they all have their own news programs, six and 10, and they’re always looking for news. Back when I was a judge, they were constantly coming to the courthouse and asking for comments. Yeah, Andy is an ultimate expert, having prosecuted the blind sheik that we really need to let go …
… or at least that’s what the people visiting the White House on a regular basis have been saying.
But anyway, so in East Texas, I’m better known. You spend a couple million dollars running for Congress, people get tired of seeing your face. And I was coming home back to Tyler one night, stopped at a — it was about two-thirty in the morning. I stopped at one of the fast fuel places. I like to travel in jeans because I don’t want to wallow around in my suit, you know? They cost too much. Jeans are comfortable. So I had on my jeans. I had my shirttail out. I prefer boots except I’ve got some Brookstone moccasins that are so great to drive in.
And so it’s two-thirty. I shuffle into this place, and I go get my Dr. Pepper and some chocolate, and I see a girl like in her 20s go over to an elderly man who was back stocking something, and she kind of pointed in my direction. Obviously seen the commercials. And I put my stuff on the counter, and she says, “Can I ask you something?” I said, “Sure.” And she said, “Are you James Taylor?”
And so I started to try to sing “Sweet Baby James,” but it wasn’t any use. I couldn’t pull it off, not talking like that, but I thanked her. But anyway, so you never know.
You know, I’m so envious of Frank’s beard. He looks so distinguished. I grew a beard one time for about six weeks before I was a judge or chief justice, and I got ready to try a case in federal court, and I was going to pick the jury that Monday.
My daughter was five. Heard me tell my wife that in East Texas, there’s some people that don’t like beards. So I was going to shave my beard before I went to pick the jury, and anyway, I was tucking our five-year-old daughter in, and she said, “Daddy, are you really going to shave your beard?” And I said, “Yeah, you like it?” And she said, “Yeah, it helps you not look like a clown.”
So, Frank, you don’t look like a clown, buddy. You look really distinguished, and I appreciate that so much.
But anyway, all of those lessons are still muddled around in my mind. I talked to Andy earlier about the things that had been discussed because you’ve had ultimate experts before you. But you hear all the talk about the Muslim Brotherhood, and sometimes — well, I’ve run into so many people that say, “When did it get started? What was it about?” And some of you may have heard me challenged in some of the small networks, you know, those that you add up all of their ratings and they don’t quite add up to Fox News viewers. But when you don’t have as many viewers as C-SPAN, it’s time to check it in. But CNN, MSNBC, they’re still hanging in there.
But anyway, they raised some cane back when I said, “This president has really jumpstarted a new Ottoman Empire.” Now, I don’t know why they had never heard about the Ottoman Empire before. Continue reading this article
This refugee story is quite the opposite of what one usually sees. Instead of going straight to the welfare office for an array of free stuff, Somali woman Amun Abdullahi attempted to contribute to Swedish society by reporting as a journalist about the jihadist group Al-Shebaab, an al Qaeda spinoff, operating in a Swedish city.
Amun was ostracized and threatened by other Somalis residing in Sweden for blowing the whistle on their jihadist activities. But she was also criticized by Swedish scribblers for discussing an unpleasant topic that blasphemes the belief that diversity is the highest good. As a result, she has given up on the West and is going back to live in Mogadishu and work as a teacher.
It’s a shame that Swedish society couldn’t embrace a courageous woman willing to tell the truth about the largely hostile Muslim tribe which Sweden continues to import.
Amun is a journalist, and the first thing you notice is
that she has more passion for journalism than most people do.
Let’s say that if all the jobs in the world were a person, then the journalist would be the head
and all the other jobs would be the different parts of the body.
Now that you have spoken so warmly about journalism,
I have to assume that you would like to work as a journalist in Sweden?
Never… I wouldn’t do that.
Amun came as a refugee in 1991, first arriving in Umeå,
which she describes as one of the most beautiful cities on earth.
Later on she moved to Rinkeby near Stockholm.
She had made the whole transition from refugee to reporter on Swedish Radio.
And her knowledge and contacts as a Somali led her onto a story which changed her life.
One morning she recognised a young Somali,
who had changed character after studying religious scripture.
That was the beginning of an investigative report,
in which she revealed how a leader of am after-school activity center lured youths into Al-Shabab
“It’s half past five, you are listening to Ekot.
Many of the young men from Sweden recruited by the Islamist rebel group Al-Shabab
have come from an after-school activity center in Rinkeby.”
After the report was aired, Amun received numerous threats.
And one night her car was torched on the street.
But she had prepared herself for the threats and social ostracism.
But she was not prepared for what followed later on.
A few months later criticisms emerged from an entirely different front.
From her own colleagues on one of Sweden’s most influential political radio shows, “Konflikt”
Here Ekot’s and thereby Amun’s research was dismissed as mere “hearsay” and “rumors”.
Behind it stood Randi Mossige-Norheim, who has been awarded
the Swedish “Grand Journalism Award” among many others
It’s simply normal to ask “did it really happen?”
I don’t think we made a claim of truth. And I could say that about many things.
We did not say that anything was correct or incorrect.
-You didn’t claim anything was correct or incorrect?
No, we didn’t say anything was correct or incorrect.
But isn’t it your job to say, that which is correct?
But what I mean is, we don’t judge anybody. We don’t judge anybody. Continue reading this article
