When New Jersey Governor Chris Christie picked Sohail Mohammed — a lawyer who had represented acquitted terror suspects after the September 11 attacks — to be a Superior Court judge, immediate objections forced him to defend his choice. Much of the criticism of his appointment focused on Mohammed’s alleged links to terrorism and the possibility that Mohammed would be inclined to follow Shariah law; however, in his unique brand of political rhetoric, Christie labeled his critics “ignorant” and “crazies.”
The disciples of communism claim that their ideological system is the cure for colonialism and imperialism. All the proletariats (working-class people) of the world, according to the prescriptions of Marx, are brothers. However, analysts observe that communism scarcely worked that way even in theory. Marx was a German nationalist who called for the extermination of Croats, Pandurs, and “similar scum.” He sneered at Danish culture as purely copied from Germany and rejoiced at the Prussia victory over France in 1871 because it would lead to the triumph of German, rather than French, socialism. He loathed Judaism and Jewish society, as well as Christians.
The Bolshevik junta in late 1918, followed four years later by the formation of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), presented itself to the world as anti-colonialist and anti-imperialist.
Boston Logan International Airport has announced that it will be adopting Israeli-style behavior screening procedures. The new procedures were introduced yesterday at the busy airport and involve screeners at the Transportation Security Administration engaging in more conversations with travelers in order to assess potential threats. Boston Logan International Airport is the first airport in the United States to adopt Israel’s enhanced airport screening methods.
Fox News reports:
Under the new program — part of a nearly $1 billion national program called the Screening Passengers by Observation Techniques, or SPOT — behavior officers will ask passengers non-intrusive questions and look to see how passengers respond. Those who exhibit suspicious behavior like avoiding eye contact and struggling with answers will be pulled aside for more screening.
Even before the July 22 terror attacks in Norway, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was hyping fears about terrorism coming from average Americans — conservatives, veterans, Tea Party types, and others.
Prior to mass-murderer Anders Breivik’s rampage that killed over 75 people, DHS released what critics labeled a “propaganda” video that “characterizes white middle class Americans as the most likely terrorists.” The film showed various minorities calling authorities to report suspicious whites in almost every scenario.
Outrage ensued as the original Infowars story went “viral,” being picked up by Fox, the Drudge Report, and even foreign newspapers. And as the news spread commentators promptly blasted the Homeland Security campaign as essentially racist.
The Islamic “conscientious objector” collared while plotting an attack in Killeen, Texas, left the court shouting the name of Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Islamic jihadist who murdered 13 people at Fort Hood in November, 2009.
And the federal criminal complaint against Army Pvt. Naser Jason Abdo, which charges him with possessing explosives, says he was planning to bomb a restaurant where GIs frequently gather.
The evidence federal gumshoes collected from Abdo’s motel room shows he intended to continue Hasan’s bloody but failed jihadist insurrection.
Admitted Norwegian mass-murderer Anders Behring Breivik was making wild demands from jail, saying he would only reveal more information about the attack and other “cells” waiting to unleash more terror if and when the government and the monarchy resigned. The killer was also demanding that he be installed as head of the armed forces, according to officials cited in news reports.
During his second police interrogation on July 29, Breivik originally said he would not discuss anything until Norwegian King Harald V, the ruling Labor Party-led government, and the nation’s top military leaders all stepped down. Apparently he wanted to be in charge. But all of his demands were denied outright.
Such a Deal! -- Why isn’t Congress talking about eliminating foreign aid? Anything that does not eliminate bureaucracy is a farce. This would not be the first time we have defaulted, even if we did so after August 2. Also some comments on Peru, Norway, and Al Qaeda.
In the wake of Norway’s terror attacks last week that left more than 75 people dead, questions are mounting about everything from the police response to the possible existence of a broader conspiracy.
Confusion surrounding the bombing and the shooting has only grown as more information — sometimes contradictory — continued to trickle out. At the top of the list are concerns that Anders Behring Breivik may have had accomplices.
According to multiple witnesses who survived the shooting rampage on the island of Utoya, there were at least two shooters. Breivik, in police custody since last week, has admitted to his role in the massacre. But survivors also described a “dark-haired” shooter who, unlike Breivik, was not wearing a police uniform.
President Obama campaigned in 2007 and 2008 on behalf of honoring the Constitution’s trial rights for suspected terrorists, and a restoration of protecting individual rights under the U.S. Constitution. But Obama hasn’t merely continued the Bush policy of detaining terror suspects without trial, he’s put many suspected law-breakers — including “dozens” of U.S. citizens — on assassination lists.
“To me, terrorists should not be able to hide behind their passports and their citizenship, and that includes U.S. citizens, whether they are overseas or whether they are here in the United States,” Obama’s Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism John O. Brennan told the Washington Times in June 2010. Brennan said at that time that “dozens” of American citizens were on Obama’s assassination list. New Mexico native Anwar al-Awlaki is reportedly on the assassination list, but the list itself remains classified. Anwar al-Awlaki is thought to be hiding out from the United States in Yemen.
It is now known why the Muslim conscientious objector, Army Pvt. Naser Jason Abdo — who was granted a request to be discharged from the Army until he was caught with child pornography — went AWOL. He was plotting an attack at the Texas Army base Fort Hood, the site of the mass murder allegedly perpetrated by Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, a Muslim jihadist.
Pvt. Abdo, of the storied 101st Airborne Division, has admitted he planned a major terror attack on Fort Hood, the Associated Press reports. He was arrested in Killeen, Texas, following a tip from a gun store clerk where Abdo attempted to buy gunpowder, ammunition, and a magazine for a handgun.
"I can probably tell you that we would be having a different briefing today if we hadn't arrested him," Killeen Police Chief Dennis Baldwin said at a news conference, according to the Killeen Daily Herald.
