Benghazi – The the “poison pill” of Obama’s presidency

In scanning and reading through the 90 or 100 emails I receive each day, things that others think I should see and read, I find some to be of interest, and some… not so much.  However, on occasion, I find myself downloading something truly special… something that adds a great deal to our understanding of the world we live in.  Such was the case with an article by Richard Fernandez, published by the Belmont Club on May 11, 2014.  The article is titled “The Day Obama’s Presidency Died.”

In comparing the death of the Obama presidency to the end of World War II in the Pacific, Fernandez writes, “Almost nobody in Japan heard about the Battle of Midway (June 4-7, 1942) until after the war (three years and three months later).  The Emperor Hirohito, upon hearing of the debacle, ordered a comprehensive cover-up.  The wounded were isolated on hospital ships.  All mail was censored.  Surviving enlisted men and officers were held incommunicado until they could be shipped off to distant battlefields, from where it was hoped they would never return.  The sunken ships themselves were gradually written off over the course of the war until their loss blended in with the general demise of the imperial fleet.  To coordinate this effort, Hirohito created a special office of cabinet rank (not unlike Obama’s stable of czars).”

He suggests that, “If the U.S. had not won World War II, Midway would never have existed in Japanese history.  The average man, of course, read nothing in the papers, heard nothing on the radio, saw nothing in the newsreels.  But perceptive Japanese ‘felt’ something momentous had happened though they could not identify its cause.  Its impact, though denied in the press, shuddered through the whole imperial fabric.  From that day forward, events seemed to take a downward trajectory.  Only after the war did the Japanese know the root of their misfortunes.”

Bringing the impact of the Battle of Midway closer to home, and comparing the failures of the Japanese high command to the too-numerous-to-mention failures of the Obama presidency, Fernandez quotes Cohen and Gooch, authors of Military Misfortunes: The Anatomy Of Failure In War (Free Press 1990), who suggest that “all military failures fall into three basic categories: failure to learn from the past, failure to anticipate what the future may bring, and failure to adapt to the immediate circumstances on the battlefield.”

According to Cohen and Gooch, “when one of these three basic failures occurs in isolation, the results, while unpleasant, can often also be overcome.  Aggregate failures occur when two of the basic failure types, usually learning and anticipation, take place simultaneously, and these are more difficult to surmount.  Finally, at the apex of failure stand those rare events when all three basic failures occur simultaneously – an event known as catastrophic failure.  In such an occurrence, the result is usually a disaster of such scope that recovery is impossible.”

Reading those words, it was immediately evident that, in more ways than one, the Obama presidency falls into the category of “catastrophic failure.”  With each passing day we are confronted with examples of multiple failures in which Obama and his people have failed to learn from past history, have failed to anticipate the disastrous consequences of their actions,  and have failed to adapt to unforeseen events in the political arena.

Arriving in the Oval Office in January 2009, with little or no practical experience in any field of endeavor, Barack Obama invariably saw himself as the smartest man in the room… maybe in the entire country.  His pre-election speech at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin and his post-election speech in Cairo provided a brief glimpse into what was to become his disastrous foreign policy.

Someone in the Obama entourage must have read a chapter or two of Sun Tzu’s The Art of War.  Sun Tzu is quoted as saying, “To win 100 victories in 100 battles is not the acme of skill; to subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.”  As Fernandez explains, “Obama’s advisers persuaded him that it would be possible to ‘turn’ America’s enemies by taking control of them instead of fighting them…”

But how was that to be accomplished?  As Fernandez explains, “Instead of relying on the regular military, the Obama administration would take over the most dangerous jihadi groups through intelligence agencies.”  It was theorized that, “Through this mechanism, (Obama and his team of leftist theorists) would become their patrons and cement the relationship with diplomatic deals with their Gulf funders.”  Drones and hunter killer squads would be used to create a fast-track career path for favored jihadis… American agents… to rise within the jihadi ranks.  In time, the U.S. would own the jihad and “neuter” it from within.

“But, of course, there had to be a genuine political component, as well.  A bone needed to be thrown to genuine Muslim aspirations.  Why not give the Muslim Brotherhood Egypt and hand over Syria to al-Qaeda?  And why not use American diplomatic muscle to force a deal between Palestine and Israel?  That way, al-Qaeda could have their own countries and presumably be satisfied with that.”

Fernandez concludes that the scheme had a certain “superficial attractiveness.”  It sounded “wildly daring, incredibly smart,” and its creators must have felt like “Cortez on a peak in Darien.”  They would likely think to themselves, “Boy, are we cool to have thought of this…” The only problem with the scheme was that, as Fernandez suggests, it could never be sold to an American public who had already lost so many of their sons to fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.  And it could never be sold to “crusty old guys” who’d see it as a “crazy-assed” scheme.

The solution to their quandary?  “Don’t tell anyone and conduct a secret foreign and counter-terrorist policy which, when it succeeded, could be unveiled as proof of Obama’s genius.”

Being the naïve and inexperienced neophytes they are, Obama and the members of his inner circle failed to remember the lessons of Neville Chamberlain and Chiang Kia-shek.

In 1938, with Adolph Hitler flexing his military muscle in Germany, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain traveled to Munich with the intention of appeasing Hitler with diplomatic niceties.  Chamberlain signed the Munich Agreement of 1938, ceding the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia to Hitler, and returned to England, proclaiming “peace for our time.”

In a speech before parliament that could have been written by Barack Obama’s speechwriters, Chamberlain said, “The real triumph is that it has shown that representatives of four great powers can find it possible to agree on a way of carrying out a difficult and delicate operation by discussion instead of by force of arms, and thereby they have averted a catastrophe which would have ended civilization as we have known it… It is my hope and my belief, that under the new system of guarantees, the new Czechoslovakia will find a greater security than she has ever enjoyed in the past…”

Less than a year later, Hitler invaded Poland and a great world war ensued.  Between September 1939 and May 1945 more than 60 million people, 2.5% of the world population, lost their lives.

Following World War II, the Chinese Civil War between the nationalist forces of Chiang Kai-shek and the communist forces of Mao Zedong resumed.  Hoping to bring an end to the conflict, President Truman sent Ambassador Averill Harriman to China with an offer the nationalist Chinese could not refuse.  If Chiang refused to take the “agrarian reformers,” as the communists were referred to, into his government, the U.S. would cut off all military and economic aid.

The Chinese refused, the U.S. cut off aid, and the communists took control of the Chinese mainland.  Chiang Kai-shek escaped to the Island of Formosa (Taiwan), along with some 2 million nationalists, where they have lived under constant threat of invasion ever since.

Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, bin Laden’s mentor and second-in-command, have sought to restore the Islamic caliphate that has not exercised real power since the 13th century, and which formally ended in 1924 upon dissolution of the Ottoman Empire.  Zawahiri believed that once the caliphate is re-established, Egypt would become a rallying point for the rest of the Islamic world, leading the jihad against the West.  Zawahiri wrote, “Then history would make a new turn, God willing, in the opposite direction against the empire of the United States and the world’s Jewish government.”

Like Chamberlain and Harriman, Obama is convinced that, by the mere force of his personality, he can charm the Russians, the North Koreans, the Iranians, the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda, and the Taliban into doing his bidding.  He consistently fails to learn from the past, fails to anticipate the ultimate outcome of his policies, and fails to deal with current circumstances in a wise and prudent way.  He has set the United States onto a downward trajectory from which it may be impossible to recover, and were it not for the fact that American presidents are limited to two 4-year terms, the Obama foreign policy might well represent the giant step forward toward the worldwide Caliphate that radical Islam has been pursuing since the 6th century.  Left to his own devices, Barack Obama would be all but certain to get us all killed.

Meanwhile, Fernandez has it right.  Of all of the Obama scandals arrayed before us, it is the Benghazi debacle that will be Obama’s Battle of Midway, the “poison pill” of his presidency.

Illegal Aliens Get Better Health Care than Vets

Fox News host Sean Hannity sat down with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans where she was asked about the unfolding scandal surrounding the Department of Veterans Affairs. Palin blasted the VA for failing veterans and said that “illegal aliens” in the United States often have access to better care than American servicemen and women.

“Is the VA a death panel for many?” Hannity asked Palin.

“That is what government-run health care will result in,” Palin replied.

Palin then states, “Isn’t it ironic that those who are willing to sacrifice all, to put their life on the line, to allow the freedom of choices in healthcare and economic decisions and everything else, our soldiers, airmen, marines — they are the ones getting screwed by the VA! And our commander-in-chief is in charge of this, ultimately.”

An Open Letter to Hassan Shibly, Director, Council of American Islamic Relations – Florida

TO:  Hassan Shibly

RE: Florida Resident and Suicide Bomber Moner Mohammed Abu Salha

Dear Mr. Shibly,

Moner Mohammed Abu Salha, a Muslim (Mohammedan) man, who lived in Fort Pierce and Vero Beach, Florida has just been identified by Jabhat Al-Nusra, an al Qaeda Salafist jihadi group, as a suicide bomber. Moner Mohammed attacked a restaurant killing unarmed defenseless civilians in Syria using a truck bomb.

Please check your mosque records and confirm that he attended a mosque in Orlando, Florida. Did he attend any of your religious gatherings and/or CAIR-FL events while here in our great state of Florida?

I would also like to know if you ever met Moner Mohammed Abu Salha and or communicated with him in any way. Please notify me, the FBI and local authorities if you did. I am sure we all would like to see the emails, phone records and letters, if any.

wfh3RasDP8A

Florida resident Moner Abusalha, a.k.a. Moner Mohammad Abu Salha, attended a Mosque in Orlando, FL.

NBC News: Florida Man Identified as Syria Suicide Bomber reports:

U.S. officials on Friday revealed what they believe is the name of an American citizen from Florida who was involved in a suicide bombing last weekend in Syria.

The man is believed to have been Moner Mohammad Abu Salha, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

Mr. Shibly, is it true that you said in 2006, following the end of the Israeli – Lebanese war, that Hezbollah is a “resistance movement” that provides valuable social services to the Lebanese and any war against Hezbollah is illegitimate?

What do you think about The Lebanese Daily Star newspaper report that stated on April 14, 2014 that three Hezbollah members had been arrested in Thailand planning on killing Israeli tourists?

This information was obtained from a specialist in the Thai intelligence services and other intelligence sources I am withholding. They identified a Thai citizen, Y. Ayyad. He is also described as a Hezbollah member working out of a unit in East Asia, while the two Lebanese nationals that were arrested, D. Farhat and B. Bahsoun, who are considered “suspects”. I will not disclose anymore. I just want your opinion on what these guys were doing in Thailand. A charity golf tournament perhaps for Hezbollah?

Photo above is from the Facebook page of Moner Abu Salha in Fort Pierce, FL. He also lived in Vero Beach, FL and appears to be about 22-years old.

Between 1982 and 1986, there were 36 suicide attacks in Lebanon directed against American, French and Israeli forces by 41 individuals, killing 659 people including my friend Navy Diver Robert Stathem. I served at the Navy Diving School in Panama City with Robert’s dive buddy (name withheld for security reasons). He too was on TWA flight 847 when Robert was murdered in cold blood by Mohammedan terrorists. Do you still believe Hezbollah is a social services organization?

We ensured Petty Officer Robert Stathem was posthumously promoted to Master Chief!

Of course Hezbollah denies involvement but the Quran permits lies so long as it furthers the cause of Islam.

Mr. Shibly, what is your opinion of the Founder of CAIR Mr. Omar M. Ahmad‘s 1998 statement that:

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant, he said.The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth”

Mr. Ahmad has a First Amendment right to make the statement but the problem is you, as a Mohammedan, do not believe in the Constitution and constantly try to suppress freedom of speech and assembly if it does not favor Islam. You tried and failed to stop speakers from attending and speaking at First Amendment events held in Florida with my friend Brigitte Gabriel. You will never stop me or Brigitte from exercising our First Amendment rights as much as you try. I do not fear you sir or the threatening letters you sent out bashing me indirectly.

Mr. Shibly what is your opinion on Senator Schumer’s statement that CAIR has ties to HAMAS?

Mr. Shibly, why does CAIR not condemn Osama Bin Laden? CAIR has refused to specifically condemn Osama Bin Laden and Islamic extremism, but rather CAIR makes only vague and meaningless generic criticisms. Do you not condemn Osama Bid Laden for his actions against the United States on 9/11?

I can continue on and list members of CAIR who in the past have been convicted of Jihad-Terrorist crimes, like Abu Mazook, but this column will too long and stringy. We in this nation are free people and we respect diverse opinions. The First Amendment was written to protect offensive speech and to ensure the press can report freely without fear of their government. Unlike in Muslim countries where there is no free press only oppression.

We don’t want your Islamic oppression in this nation Mr. Shibly. Embrace the U.S. Constitution and be free and send your oppressive Sharia law bedfellows back to Saudi Arabia.

God Bless America.

Marine Le Pen Shopping for Allies at the EU Parliament in Brussels — Part 3

American banking authorities are threatening to slap a 10 billion dollar fine on France’s top bank, BNP Paribas, accused of handling transactions in dollars from 2002-9 for customers from Iran, Cuba, and Sudan, in violation of an American embargo. What does this have to do with the Front National? Would an anti-Islamization party be shocked by the Iranian ties of our flagship bank? Or perhaps the Front National, sworn enemy of Big Finance, will be pleased to see a money-grubbing bank get its fingers slapped and its stockholders deprived of one year’s dividends?

Probably not. Marine Le Pen accuses the United States of imposing sanctions to prevent French companies from trading with Iran the better to allow American companies to prepare a bright commercial future there. At the same time she accuses France of joining the US in a veritable war on Iran.

Aymeric Chauprade has been Marine Le Pen’s foreign policy advisor since she became party president in 2011. Elected this month EU deputy from the district that includes Paris, he is expected to pilot the Group that Le Pen is striving to put together. Chauprade is eminently presentable, handsomely academic, poised and soft-spoken. He calls himself a “dissident,” replacing the Soviet Union with oppressive Western democracies. His carefully constructed discourse has all the marks of the accomplished geostrategist with a solid academic background and broad international experience. Except that it veers off into riffs about the machinations of the “Atlantico-Zionist conspiracy” alternating with lyrical passages in praise of Vladimir Putin. As he spins his fascinating tale about the real forces at work in our world, the balance of power, the sources of conflict, the causes of violence, the historical realities—e.g. Islamic jihad and its scriptural foundations—are metamorphosed into marionettes manipulated by imperialist America.

Keeping in mind that Marine Le Pen needs 2 more allies to form a 7-nation Group at the European Parliament, we may justifiably extend our inquiry into the words and deeds of her foreign policy advisor, Aymeric Chauprade. To what extent are his policies acceptable to the leaders of the four parties already allied with the Front National—Geert Wilders, Harald Wilinsky, Gerald Annemans, and Matteo Salvini?

Revelations about the Front National are often but not always found in media that could be labeled “leftwing” or “anti-fascist.” The anti-jihad discourse adopted by Marine Le Pen at the beginning of her presidential campaign led to uncritical acceptance of the Front National by thinkers and activists concerned with the dangers of 21st century Islamic conquest. Many, if not the great majority of these people were awakened to this issue by the 9/11 jihad attack against the United States. They do not appreciate being rejected as right wing racist xenophobic Islamophobes. Is the triumph of the Front National good news for them?

Anton Shekhovtsov alleges that Aymeric Chauprade acted as an observer for the recent Crimean referendum at the invitation of the Eurasian Observatory for Democracy & Elections (EODE) headed by a Belgian “neo-Nazi” Luc Michel. Chauprade subsequently denied his participation, potentially harmful to the reputation of the Front National.Articles by Luc Michel can be consulted on the Palestine Solidarité site.

The Right Wing Watch blog quotes from a speech made by Chauprade to fellow activists and the Russian Parliament: “In this new battle…those who do not want the U.S. anti-missile shield, the dominance of NATO, or the war against Syria and Iran are in the same camp as those who refuse the loss of sovereignty, population replacement on a grand scale, FEMEN, gender theory, homosexual marriage, as well as the further commodification of the human body.”

According to an article on the France 24 / English website, Chauprade kept his long standing affiliation with the Front National quiet–for fear it would hamper his academic career–until Marine Le Pen became president. The article cites Chauprade’s theory about Wikileaks: it is most likely a “secret programme….a fake opposition” set up by the US to “boost its… credibility.” Why, he asks, hasn’t Wikileaks published any documents about 9/11?

Le Libre Belgique reports that Chauprade burnished his professional résumé, in some cases upgrading his status at several academic institutions from teaching assistant to “Chair,” etc.

I have tried to limit this brief overview to verifiable and verified information. All of the above sources can be consulted, investigated, and cross-checked. But the best source is Aymeric Chauprade himself. Posted on Alai Soral’s Egalité et Reconciliation site, this long, leisurely interview produced by ReOpen911.info is a treasure trove of insight. Chauprade was dismissed from his teaching post at the War College in 2009 after including a brief mention of alternative 9/11 theories. The “dissident” was indignant, claiming he had simply mentioned the “inside job” theory, among others, without judging its validity.

However, in the video interview with an invisible ReOpen911 comrade, Aymeric Chauprade valiantly defends his geostrategic vision: Hidden behind the “outer” United States is a dark “inner” United States controlled by an oligarchy, a small number of families that have held power for generations. American presidents are their puppets. Terrorism is a tool of American policy that requires an enemy to excuse incursions here, there, and wherever it has resources to exploit, governments to bring down or set up. Communism was the enemy, now it’s Islam. Yes, of course, Islamists exist. But they too are puppets. The CIA infiltrates jihad cells, or creates them out of available raw material, and when it suits American interests, sends them out to blow themselves up, poor fools.

“We”—he refers to his ReOpen911 comrade—are not peddling a simplistic conspiracy theory… “there were no planes in the towers”… nonsense like that. No, it is far more complex and you have to study it in context, in a long term view. Chauprade has great respect for Peter Dale Scott. And Thierry Meyssan, too, who was a forerunner, though he didn’t have all the elements at hand at the time. Of one thing “we” can be absolutely certain: the official explanation is the least credible. It’s not at all credible.

Concluding a well-developed, long range, elaborate theory on the way the Americans create, manipulate, and exploit terrorism, Chauprade concludes: “Al Qaeda is the Arab Legion of the CIA.”

Anna Cabana (Le Point May 29, 2014) reports an alleged conversation with Marine Le Pen’s cabinet chief Philippe Martel, who boasted that his services are collecting information about the private and professional lives of French journalists, in a strategy designed to destabilize them when necessary, punish them when justified. Martel later denied making any such statements while admitting he may have made one or some but not all. Unless the phone conversation was recorded, there’s no way of verifying it.

Steve Briois, Secretary General of the Front National and newly elected mayor of Henin-Beaumont is demanding the dismissal of Guy Lagarche, producer of the documentary mentioned in Part 2 that included a long-winded sequence filmed with a hidden camera by a journalist disguised as a volunteer at the campaign headquarters of Hughes Sion [sic], candidate for mayor in neighboring Lens. Sion looks like a rank amateur stumbling awkwardly through a hopeless campaign. The second, meatier sequence, which touched albeit lightly on personalities such as Frédéric Chatillon, cannot be attacked on the same grounds—invasion of privacy, falsification of identity, etc.—but if Lagache were ousted it would discourage other investigative journalists.

Since I started writing about the Front National I have been looking for the appropriate image to describe the relation between Marine Le Pen and her close advisors with the “others” she keeps at a distance– Alain Soral, Dieudonné, Thierry Meyssan, Serge Ayoub, etc. It’s a wireless connection. Her advisors underplay—with the help of the media– the worldview that unites them with the unsavory characters that are kept behind a cordon sanitaire where they won’t tarnish the image of the Front National as a modern respectable party that deserves to govern domestically, and a courageous Eurexit party worthy of the trust of decent allies. But the wireless connection is operative and will be translated, sooner or later, into acts. That is the nature of politics.

President Obama: “For Want of a Nail”

This week President Obama signaled a foreign policy shift in the best way he knows how: he gave a speech.  Whatever else may be said about this President, he’s been no slacker in the speech-giving department.

Nor was his foreign policy speech at West Point earlier this week short on stale rhetorical fare.  Indeed at times it sounded not just like an attack on a series of straw men, but an attack on a series of straw men from about ten years ago.  For instance we had, ‘Just because we have the best hammer doesn’t mean every problem is a nail.’  It’s hard to find anybody, outside the nightmares of the radical left, who does think that every problem is a nail in need of a hammer. But it is an interesting analogy for the President to use.  It echoes Robert Kagan’s comment in his seminal ‘Paradise and Power, where he pointed out that one of the inverses of the hammer analogy is that if you don’t have a hammer, you don’t even want to see a nail.

The problem for Obama’s America is not its ownership of hammers, and it certainly isn’t about a paucity of nails.  The problem is that the best hammer in the world is being wielded by a man who would rather get out of doing any DIY.  We noted in recent weeks the absurdity of the world’s most powerful people joining a Twitter campaign rather than doing anything about the missing Nigerian schoolgirls.  But in recent days this absurdity has magnified.

In Sudan, a woman called Merriam Ibrahim is sitting in a prison in Khartoum.  She has been sentenced to death for converting to Christianity.  She is married to an American man and has just given birth – in prison – to a child who will be an American citizen.  Her ‘apostasy’ from Islam to Christianity means she will be lashed one hundred times before being executed.

The American government does not appear to regard the execution of the wife of an American citizen (herself a citizen-in-waiting) as a serious matter.  The Sudanese authorities certainly don’t seem to think it any great matter and are treating Merriam Ibrahim in the way they treat any other person who they find guilty of having exercised their conscience.

So here, Mr President, is a real nail.  And you are the one with the hammer.  You could talk the nail away.  Or you could talk about how understanding we must be towards those who have nail problems in general.  Or you could show some political leadership and give that nail the biggest and hardest hammer-blow of all time.  And that is what a leader would do.  He would wield that hammer and threaten to strike – and strike if necessary – the biggest blow possible in defence of human freedom, human conscience and basic human rights.  So what’s it going to be?  As Merriam Ibrahim is finding out, the Sudanese authorities seem to think talk is cheap.

Maine Le Pen Shopping for Allies at the EU Parliament — Part 2

I endured a seven-hour TV marathon yesterday, beginning with Marine Le Pen’s press conference at the EU Parliament press center in Brussels, hopping from station to station, from newscast to debate, and ending with a 2-hour documentary on the Front National.

The Press Conference: a triumphant Marine Le Pen at the center and in the lead, flanked by Geert Wilders (PVV Netherlands), Harald Wilimsky (FPÖ Austria), Gerald Annemans (Vlaams Belang, Belgium), and Mateo Salvini (Northern League, Italy). Certain that her victory in France’s European elections has radically changed the face of Europe—“nothing will ever be the same”—she is supremely confident that she’ll find the two missing nationalities to complete her group and exert a strong influence in the EU Parliament as in domestic politics. The prospect is appetizing: if she can form a 7-nation group, she’ll get an operating budget of as much as 4 million euros, plus countless privileges and facilities. It’s not exactly equivalent to a seat on the UN Security Council, it will have little or no effect on the sluggish workings of the EU Parliament, but it will be hard cash and a sounding board to boost her French presidential ambitions.

The press conference was—theoretically—broadcast on the all-news BFM TV… except that they slipped coverage as soon as Geert Wilders began to speak… in English. I zapped, finally caught up with the event on France 24 / English in time to hear the last words of Wilders’ contribution. Then Wilinsky started to speak in German. No translation. And I haven’t been able to find a video of the entire press conference online.

From what I can gather, Marine is the Leader, the guys played supporting roles. L’Express cites a telling remark by Matteo Salvini: he says he is perfectly comfortable with Marine Le Pen even though members of the [Italian] Jewish community told him if he sat with her he would be outside the limits of democracy.

As it happens, President François Hollande was also in Brussels yesterday for a meeting of the EU Council (scheduled well in advance, not a crisis meeting as Marine Le Pen gleefully claimed). Hollande, known for his inveterate optimism, used his party’s disastrous score as leverage to warn the EU that it must heed the message and address the grievances of European citizens. This is a logical conclusion to the Socialist party line during the brief, pale, and unprofitable campaign. The problem with the EU, they argued, is not essential it’s partisan. Dominated by conservative parties, it produces austerity, inequality, injustice. When Europe-wide voters send a left wing majority to the EU Parliament, the people will have the Europe they want and need.

In other words, the EU should apply the same disastrous outworn neo-Marxist policies that have led to the ongoing collapse of the Hollande government and corresponding rise of the Front National.

PS: Reports that UKIP’s Farage is seriously considering an alliance with Bepe Grillo of the 5-Star movement dilutes the impact of his rejection of the Front National. Michael Ledeen (in PJ Media) describes Grillo as a “foul-mouthed former professional comedian….[who] called for the total rejection of the political class (above all, Renzi) and promised that, once he won the European vote, he’d demand the government fall and then he would win national political elections and purge the whole political system.” Marine Le Pen nourishes the same ambition. Except that Grillo’s chances are slim—Renzi has pulled Italy out of a nosedive—and Le Pen’s are distressingly real, with Hollande asleep at the wheel.

The real issue in Europe is the clash between mass Muslim immigration and the welfare state, the conflict between humanistic European values and retrograde Islamic jihad. As I explained in a Dispatch International piece the slightest attempt by the opposition UMP to address this problem was slammed as a concession to the fascist right, namely the Front National. And the FN returned the compliment, boasting that the people prefer the original to the copy. The UMP was decapitated this week by the resignation of party chief Jean-François Copé, who defended la droite décomplexée line [the right that dares to be on the right]. Though Copé claims to be the victim and not a participant of an alleged campaign finance scandal exposed just before the municipal and European elections, he was forced to resign. The party is emasculated.

Soaring above the scandal like a scavenger, Marine Le Pen self-righteously claims she only spent €9 million on her 2012 presidential campaign (Sarkozy is currently alleged to have exceeded the  €22 million legal limit by at least €10 million). Aside from the fact that Marine Le Pen was eliminated in the first round and Sarkozy drew gigantic crowds in the last days of the second round campaign, with correspondingly huge organizational expenses, Marine Le Pen’s campaign may have been financed indirectly by the FN satellite party — “Jeanne”— a rather opaque organization that funnels money into the Front National through a variety of operations and some unidentified sources. It is currently under investigation.

Marine Le Pen is now questioning the validity of the 2012 election (she came in third), implying that Sarkozy should be retroactively deprived of his place in the 2nd round like a sprinter caught doping. Anyway she is confident that she will be elected president in 2017. And this should not be taken lightly.

Which brings us back to her foreign policy advisor, Aymeric Chauprade, a prolific writer and talented speaker who says “Al Qaeda is the Arab Legion of the CIA.”

[Part 3 will be posted on May 30th]

Marine Le Pen is Shopping for Allies at the EU Parliament

Follow the story in real time:

Having outdone the major opposition party—UMP—and trounced the governing Socialists in last week’s European elections, Marine Le Pen went off to Brussels today, looking for allies. If she can form a block of at least 25 deputies representing seven different countries, she will drastically improve her chances to influence EU policy while sharing in the perks: funding, chauffeur-driven cars, offices, legislative privileges, etc. The Front National itself has 24 Eurodeputies; the problem is finding the 7 nations. More or less assured of her alliance with Geert Wilders’ Freedom Party, the Austrian FPO, Belgium’s Vlams Blang, she is hard put to find the missing allies. Both UKIP and the Danish People’s Party have ruled out any alliance with the FN. On the other hand, Marine Le Pen can’t risk alliances with blatantly anti-Semitic antidemocratic parties like Golden Dawn, Jobbik, and other minor parties of similar persuasion.

What do committed and potential allies know about the Front National? Apparently not much. Marine Le Pen has pursued a forceful normalization strategy to rid the Front National of the sleazy image shaped by her father Jean-Marie Le Pen and upheld by party leaders and rank & file over the past 40 years since its founding. For some mysterious reason this window dressing has been respected by French media and gone unnoticed, with rare exceptions, in international media.

One of these exceptions, Gatestone Institute, links to Marine Le Pen’s foreign January 22nd foreign policy press conference, where she presents a superficially reasonable foreign policy and a seemingly brilliant advisor, Aymeric Chauprade, political scientist, author, professor, advisor, world traveler, and more. You don’t have to understand French to see how professional it looks. But you have to listen very carefully to Mme. Le Pen’s presentation to recognize the underlying values, affinities, logic, passion, and motives. (summarized in the Gatestone article http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/4160/marine-le-pen-chauprade)

Does it have anything to do with the anti-jihad hopes pinned on the Front Natinal by well-informed thinkers with no hateful undertones? Does it have anything remotely concerned with the hopes of Europeans for relief from Eurabian oppression?

Aymeric Chauprrade, Marine Le Pen’s foreign policy chief—imagine him Minister of Foreign Affairs in a future Le Pen government—believes that we are victims of an Atlantico-Zionist conspiracy. Big banks, American imperialism, and Zionism are conspiring to rule the world and ruin the decent European citizen who wants to live a decent life in a sovereign nation. Chauprade believes that the CIA infiltrates jihadi groups and triggers human bomb explosions when and where it suits the evil American purposes. These jihadis, as he describes them, are sort of sleepy misguided losers who would sit around smoking pot if the Americans didn’t push them into senseless action. 9/11 for example: an inside job, a prime example of American manipulation of otherwise innocent Muslims.

Listening carefully to Marine Le Pen’s major foreign policy statement it is clear that the arch-enemy is not Islam or Islamization, it is the United States of America. Marine Le Pen accuses the French government of increasingly falling under the influence of the United States to the point of making friends with Saudi Arabia. On the other hand, France should improve relations with Iran and Russia. Though the Front National is opposed to nuclear proliferation in the Middle East, Iran should be allowed to develop nuclear power for peaceful civilian purposes. Iran should have been invited to the Geneva 2 Conference on Syria. The Americans and Germans impose sanctions on Iran while sneaking in by the back door in preparation for juicy business as soon as the sanctions are lifted… or before.

Marine Le Pen will give a press conference from Brussels shortly. An update will follow. BFM TV reports that Nigel Farage of UKIP, who is in fierce competition to form a Eurexit group, met with a delegation from Italy’s Northern League, allegedly committed to Marine Le Pen’s alliance.

Florida: Would-be jihad mass murderer allowed not to stand when judge enters court

He wanted to commit mass murder in the name of Islam and jihad, and now he wants taxpayers to provide him clothing that reflects those same religious beliefs. And when Judge Scriven granted him permission not to stand when she entered, was she aware of the fact that Osmakac’s remaining seated signifies that he doesn’t respect Infidel laws or authorities, but only the law of Allah, and would consider standing for an American judge tantamount to idolatry — showing respect that is due only to Allah. It is, in other words, a statement of complete disrespect for and rejection of the authority of the court and of U.S. law in general. As such, it should never have been permitted in a U.S. court. But the willful ignorance is all-pervasive.

Oh, and Sami Osmakac is not an Arab. It isn’t Arab clothing he wants to wear. It’s Islamic clothing.

“Man asks court to provide Arab clothing during Tampa trial,” by Elaine Silvestrini, Tampa Tribune, May 23, 2014 (thanks to Teresa):

TAMPA — Sami Osmakac is asking taxpayers to provide him traditional Arab clothing for him to wear when he goes on trial next week on charges he plotted a terrorist attack in Tampa.

Osmakac’s lawyer told a federal magistrate this morning that Osmakac’s family doesn’t want to pay to clothe him in a robe garment called a thobe and a head wrap known as a keffiyeh. Lawyer George Tragos [from the law firm Tragos, Sartes & Tragos] said he couldn’t say why Osmakac wants to wear the clothes. U.S. Magistrate Anthony Porcelli planned to confer with District Judge Mary Scriven about what clothing might be available for Osmakac to wear.

The judge has previously given Osmakac permission not to stand when the judge or jury enters the courtroom because of his religious beliefs. Potential jurors will be asked whether they can still be fair to him, given that belief.

Osmakac was also found competent to stand trial, after a court-appointed expert concluded he is able to proceed.

Jury selection is scheduled to start Tuesday, and the trial is expected to last up to four weeks, including jury selection.

Authorities allege Osmakac plotted to blow up a popular Tampa night spot and then take hostages and demand the release of Islamic prisoners. He was arrested as part of an FBI sting.

The defense maintains Osmakac was entrapped and that he was vulnerable to influence because of his mental illness.

The defense also asserts that Osmakac was targeted by the FBI partly because of his “radical” Islamic beliefs.

Open letter to President Obama: On Using U.S. Military Forces Against We The People

Dear President Obama,

I understand you considered using U.S. military force against militia forces at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada. Well golly we are shaking in our boots. You understand this would have been in direct violation of the the 1878 “Posse Comitatus Act” and an act of war against “We the people”.

The Posse Comitatus Act states:

Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.

This would also explain the purging of our military at the highest levels. I guess these purged commanders refused to comply with your request to shoot upon the American people if called upon to do so by YOU! Well you fired over 200 of these brave patriots and now they are 100 times more powerful as armed private citizens. You made a huge mistake.

Mr. President, you considered a military attack against the militia at the Bundy Ranch by applying the unconstitutional Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” which was issued by the Pentagon on December 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.” To continue it states:

“Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances unless specifically authorized by the president in accordance with applicable law or permitted under emergency authority,”

The directive then states.

“In these circumstances, those federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the president is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances” under two conditions.

The conditions include military support needed “to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order.” A second use is when federal, state and local authorities “are unable or decline to provide adequate protection for federal property or federal governmental functions.”

“Federal action, including the use of federal military forces, is authorized when necessary to protect the federal property or functions,”

Military assistance can include loans of arms, ammunition, vessels and aircraft. The directive states clearly that it is for engaging civilians during times of unrest.

The directive was signed by then-Deputy Defense Secretary William J. Lynn. The full text of the directive may be found on the Pentagon website.

So why did a U.S. official, a man who works in the White House state that you considered but then rejected deploying military forces under this directive during the recent standoff with our militia at Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s home?

Mr. President, why did you cave in and not fire upon the militia members at the Bundy ranch? Why did you order the Bureau of Land Management, (BLM) a federal, fascist like, militarized unit to stand down?

You must have seen the light and realized you would lose this fight. You would then have been arrested and impeached for crimes against the U.S. Constitution, charged with the murder of innocent Americans and you probably would have started a Second American Revolutionary War.

We the people will not permit such folly. The Second Amendment is probably the only thing keeping your progressive/socialist policies in check. It kept Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Imperial Japanese out of our nation during World War II. Now its keeping you in check too. Agreed? Our founding Fathers were wiser than we could ever imagine, and you are the newest iteration of the Communist – Fascist – Marxist ideology they prepared us for.

Mr. President, defense analysts across this nation are watching you very closely and they state you have built tactical armed military units within non-security-related federal agencies. You have created Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams within the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Internal Revenue Service and the Education Department, etc., etc., etc.

Why are you doing this Mr. President and why is the Congress allowing you to do this? Where is Speaker John Boehner? There is ZERO leadership in the Congress for the people.

The militarization of federal agencies is in full swing and the White House continues to launch psychological Saul Alinskyesque attacks upon U.S. private citizens’ regarding ownership of firearms despite the fact that Americans are law-abiding citizens.

Where is the Congress of the United States? We paying them $175,000 a year for what, exactly? To sit around while the BLM, IRS, DHS and other federal agencies build armies against we the people? It is time for Speaker Boehner get off the fence and start writing a bill to disarm all of these federal agencies. DO IT NOW or blood will be spilled, American blood! Congressman Miller get off your seat and stand with the people! Write the bill, pass it and get it through the U.S. Senate.

I called the White House National Security Council direct line for an answer but your team won’t comment to me. What are you hiding Mr. President?

I am glad Mr. President you chose wisely and abandoned your attempt to shoot our Constitutionally legally amassed militia forces in Nevada. The outcome of such a battle would be a huge loss for the government. Trust me. There are more of us than you and we are not afraid to protect the Republic legally and constitutionally under all Amendments the Founding Fathers entrusted us with.

God Bless America and shame on the Congress for not protecting us. I guess it up to us. This is why more guns and ammo are being bought by American men and women. They are going to need them one day it appears. Mr. Obama is preparing a war against we the people.

Working off facts and not hear-say on this issue, I believe I am 99.9% right.

Judgement Day: Pro-Israel Z-Street trial “Will Force the IRS to Open its Books”

In the August 2013 New English Review (NER) we interviewed Lori Lowenthal Marcus, national correspondent for The Jewish Press and co-founder of Z Street- the Zionist antidote to anti-Israel J Street.  It was about the July 19, 2013 hearing held before Judge Ketanji Brown of the DC Federal  Court in the matter of Z Street v IRS. The case had been filed in the Eastern District in Pennsylvania and then transferred  to the DC Federal court as this was a federal government matter. The original Z Street matter was based on a First Amendment issue, “viewpoint discrimination”. In our NER interview article we noted what the basis of the original filing was about:

news release by Z STREET, issued  just prior to the DC court proceeding cited the June 24, 2013 House Ways and Means release of acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel’s responses to a letter from Ranking  Member, Sander Levin (D-MI). Z STREET’s supplementary filing revealed that there were no “progressive” groups scrutinized by the IRS “Touch and Go” Group (TAG) in Washington, DC. Instead due diligence of the IRS documents revealed that Z STREET was the sole subject by the TAG review because of “Israel-connected” views of the group in its original 501 (c ) (3) application.   

We further noted the contretemps at the July 19, 2013 DC federal court hearing:

Alana Goodman of The Washington Free Beacon who attended the DC Federal Court hearing noted in her report the IRS argument and the reaction of Judge Brown:

The government argued in court on Friday that Z STREET should resolve its tax-exempt status, which is still in limbo, before any policy questions can be addressed.

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson seemed skeptical of the argument, saying that the government appeared to be mischaracterizing the remedy that Z Street was seeking.

“That’s not what they want,” Judge Jackson snapped at one point.

Z STREET said the government was misrepresenting its position.

“We’re not seeking tax-exempt status in this case. We are seeking an untainted process,” said Counsel Jerome Marcus. “What is the policy that the IRS has been following since 2010, and is that process constitutional?”

Is the Z Street case against the IRS evidence of bureaucratic ineptitude or something else? If discovery is granted by the DC Court ruling we may find who and why an unconstitutional act of viewpoint discrimination was perpetrated against STREET.

Today’s Wall Street Journal reported Judge Katanji Brown ruling effectively granting discovery to Z Street, “IRS Judgment Day: The un-talkative agency comes under scrutiny from a federal judge”:

In August 2010, Z Street sued the IRS on grounds that the position amounts to viewpoint discrimination and violates the First Amendment. The IRS responded by claiming special protections, including the Anti-Injunction Act, a law written to protect the IRS from litigation that could interfere with its ability to collect revenue.

But Washington, D.C. federal district Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson ruled that the Anti-Injunction Act has not been interpreted by the courts as preventing constitutional claims. In its attempt to “thwart” the action, she wrote in denying the IRS motion to dismiss, the IRS tries to “transform a lawsuit that clearly challenges the constitutionality of the process . . . into a dispute over tax liability.”

The IRS also tried to duck out under the sovereign immunity doctrine, which was designed to deter lawsuits against the feds. But that claim fails, Judge Jackson writes, because the Administrative Procedures Act “waives sovereign immunity with respect to suits for nonmonetary damages that allege wrongful action by an agency or its officers or employees, and the instant lawsuit fits precisely those criteria.”

This ruling will force the IRS to open its books on the procedures it used and decisions it made reviewing Z Street’s tax-exempt application, procedures it has tried to keep shrouded. As the case proceeds, Z Street’s attorneys can seek depositions from many who have been part of the larger attempt to sit on similar applications by other conservative groups.

It will be fascinating to see which names— Lois Lerner, former head of IRS tax-exempt scrutiny?—show up in the internal email traffic. The Administration may have a harder time evading accountability now that a judge will be supervising the testimony.

In our NER interview with Ms. Marcus, we asked her what the best outcome that might emerge with Judge Ketanji’s ruling.  Here is the exchange:

Gordon:  What do you believe would be the best outcome of the D.C. Federal Court after its review of the various filings in terms of handing down a ruling in this case?

Marcus:  Naturally, I think the court should sign the proposed Order that we submitted and provide us with access to what is called discovery. Meaning we are permitted to seek information about how the IRS set about creating this policy, who formulated it, who approved it, who knew about it, who had to apply it, to whom was it applied. That is what we need to find out in order to learn how the IRS came to create policies that are not just inappropriate, not just mismanagement, but which constitute violations of the U.S. Constitution. We need to find out because unless we do, there are going to be greater and greater restrictions on fundamental freedoms.

Way to go Judge Brown.  Now the IRS has no shield against discovery by Z Street. This could an interesting turn of events vis a vis the original viewpoint discrimination issue raised in the Z Street Federal court filling.  Whatever names emerge on the BOTL emails might cause  a flood of filings from other possible social welfare filers. As baseball great Yogi Berra might opine, “It ain’t over till it’s over”.  Congratulations to Lori Lowenthal Marcus and her counsel, her husband Jerome, for undertaking this landmark case for Z Street and all Americans. Let’s see how the IRS counsel  responds  to Judge Brown’s ruling.

As a Z Street board member this federal court ruling has justified the four year wait for justice to be done in the matter. To paraphrase Justice Brandeis Judge Brown’s ruling is good “disinfectant”.

5 steps for fixing the VA problems — if I were in charge

As I watch the events unfold regarding the Veterans Administration scandal — certainly not a phony one – I’m waiting to hear a concrete plan of action and solutions.

We do not need any more studies, assessments and reports. We certainly don’t need another agency within the Obama administration investigating itself.

I’m also concerned about the number of retired military officers circling the wagons around, it seems, one of their own — retired former Chief of Staff, now Secretary of Veterans Administration, General Eric Shinseki.

What amazes me is that, in uniform, this type of abject and systematic failure over the past six years would have resulted in relief of command. However, it now seems there are different standards and measures of effectiveness in the quagmire we call government bureaucracy — I would have hoped the code of honor and integrity transcends the day one takes off the uniform.

In any event, here are five steps the administration should be taking (not holding my breath):

1. Change of management – I didn’t say leadership because it seems no one is leading and they are certainly mismanaging. But it begins at the top with the Secretary and must go to the senior levels where these issues are being raised.

Some will say leave Secretary Shinseki in place to fix the VA problems, it’s been almost six years and the problem has been exacerbated. Some believe (or hope) once there are resignations, the media will move on and this won’t be a hot topic anymore – that may apply to the fawning Obama liberal media but not the rest of us.

In that vein, we should be listening to our Veterans Service Organizations such as the VFW, American Legion, ROA, NAUS, AMVETS and MOAA as they are the true “voices of our veterans.”

General Shinseki and senior levels of the VA have lost the confidence of the veteran community. As a matter of fact, it seems he’s completely turned his back on it and become just another “Beltway Bandit” — forgetting his oath of office as a commissioned officer in exchange for political loyalties. We thank him for his countless years of service to our nation in uniform, but this is inexcusable.

2. Provide immediate relief with vouchers to civilian hospitals for proper care – of course this process will need scrutiny and tracking to ensure good stewardship of the taxpayer dollar — which we all would humbly want to see go to caring for those who have borne such a burden for this Republic. But the voucher program is not the panacea to solve the greater problem.

3. Develop regional “Centers of Excellence” – five to be exact: North, South, East, Midwest, and West, based upon veteran population concentration, focus resources for staffing and look at relationships with local private hospitals. As well, outpatient clinics should be part of these COEs and we should develop best practices for better automation as part of this initiative. I would say these would be our Tier IA Veteran care facilities and there should be a determination as to their coverage areas.

4. Provide local alternatives for remote areas – we need to assess the remote areas where our veterans need care and coverage and look at developing a process and a system whereby their first line of healthcare can come from a local private hospital. Again, there would need to be a system in place to track these individuals. Along with this comes a very well-trained and responsive system of “Help Centers” that can address issues and resolve them for our vets, and I don’t mean “we will get back to you.”

5. Improve record-keeping – if the Obama administration was so adept at contacting voters they should be able to develop a better automation system for records and caring of our veterans. It is imperative that we are able to quickly and seamlessly transition health records of those who have served in uniform, regardless of Active Duty or Reserve Component, into the VA system. No more drop-offs into the abyss.

You might have thought this would have been what President Obama would have articulated last week, instead of more faux outrage and lecturing about others taking responsibility.

And yes, something criminal has occurred within the Veterans Administration and the US Attorney General, Eric Holder, should conduct an independent investigation — or is it just not that important?

I always taught my young officers that any issues you bring to me must have at least once recommendation for a solution — above are just a few off the top of my head. And I don’t have an entire policy staff.

But I must ask, if the Obama administration, indeed government itself, is having a problem handling veterans healthcare, which is less than two percent of our American population, how do you think they’ll handle trying to manage the entire country’s healthcare?

There is Only One Way to Prevent Shariah from Destroying America

I am not going to spend hours and hours to answer this question.  America, Israel, Canada, and other non Islamic countries can be spared their destruction from the evils of the Islamic ideology by only one method.

I am not a war monger, not do I desire any form of violence, or want to see innocent children harmed by a war in their country.  I am providing my professional analysis of a very serious problem.  The problem is the Islamic ideology.  It is an ideology that lives, breeds, and grows faster than any known terminal form of cancer.

If we do not want America to be destroyed it is going to take Americans saying no to Islam.  Not just with bumper stickers.  Americans are going to have to demand the Islamic ideology and Shariah law to be labeled as an Islamic terrorist group.

Al Qaeda, Hamas, Boko Haram, and the dozens of other Islamic terrorist groups are just splinters from the Islamic ideology itself.  There is no good with such violent groups as the KKK, Al Sharpton’s organization, or the Islamic ideology.

Think back the last decade, how many days have gone by in which Islam and their murderers have not been in the world news.  In the name of Islam, their fighters have murdered thousands upon thousands of innocent men, women, and children.

Americans must stand up and fight the ‘Holy War’ Islamic leaders have always expressed their desire for.  The days of shaking hands and allowing Islam to spread in America are gone.  There are approximately 2300 mosques in America. Their numbers are growing and existing mosques are expanding in size.

How do Americans fight? 

Again this is my analysis, not my desire.  During the civil war Americans (due to politics) had to fight other Americans.  Politicians left Americans with no choice.  In 2014 after six long years of Socialist Obama, politics are again pitting Americans against people living in America.  The people within Islam are not Americans, regardless of what a court or politician dictates.  One can only be an American if he/she vows to put the U.S. Constitution as the supreme law of the land.  An American vows to give his/her life for America against enemies from the inside and out.

The Islamic ideology and it’s followers living in America do not support the U.S. Constitution over Shariah law.  If a Muslim tells you he/she does, they are lying to you. The only solution to save America is for America to be a land for Americans only or those who would give their life to support the U.S. Constitution. If a person does not meet this requirement then he/she should be considered an enemy of America.

Boko Haram, the group that kidnapped 300 innocent Christian children in Nigeria are practicing Islam as Mohammed and Shariah law dictate.  They are not radical. They are ‘Pure Muslims’ who desire to live in a land as Mohammed wanted.  They are just carrying out his commands. See:

Shariah Law: Family Stones Pregnant Lady

Trolley Square, SLC, Utah: Murders By Muslim

On 12 Feb 2007, a Muslim left a mosque in Salt Lake City, Utah.  He proceeded to Trolley Square Mall and murdered 5 innocent people in the name of Islam. I had personally conducted research at this mosque and rated it at the highest level for the potential of violence. This mosque is about a one minute walk to the Shopping Mall.

A bit of interesting trivia:

  • How many people die on average each year due to ‘Guns’?  30,000
  • How many people die on average each year due to ‘Alcohol’?  88,000
  • How many people die each year due to ‘Tobacco’?  443,000
  • How many Babies’ are murdered each year in the name of ‘Abortion’?  1.7 million

Do readers truly believe politicians, our law enforcement, media, or liberals really want to save Americans from needless death?  Why do they choose to put guns as their number one enemy, when a hundred times more die from Alcohol or Tobacco?  A thousand times more innocent babies are killed by abortions each year in America than people killed by guns (30,000).

It would be more appropriate for these hypocrites to ban alcohol, tobacco, and stop murdering innocent children if they really care about human life. The fact is, sadly, they don’t care.

Grover Norquist — Trust me! I’m a Lobbyist!

Chinese Special Forces Take 1st Place at ‘Elite Warriors Olympics’

The Sixth Annual Warrior Competition was held and the top three winners were not U.S. special operators. 

The 6th Annual Warrior Competition have concluded, this event had 33 teams representing 19 nations from around the globe. The United States fielded two teams from the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit, Fleet Marine Force. No other U. S. military branch or police unit fielded a Special Operations Force (SOF) team. No Army Rangers, Green Berets or Navy SEALs participated due to mission requirements.

According to Popular Science writers Jeffrey Lin and P.W. Singer, “The Warrior Competition, which the New York Times describes as a “special operations Olympics”, is held at the King Abdullah Special Operations Training Center (KASOTC). The facility is one of the most comprehensive special operations and counter-terrorism training facilities in the region, including even an Airbus for training., and is staffed by MissionX, a private military contractor manned by ex NATO special operators. Previous champions have included the US Marine Force Recon (2010) and the German GSG9 (2012). This year, the eleven tasks of the Warrior Competition were exercises with operational names like Urban Assault, High Angle Drive By,Three Gun Gauntlet, Operator vs. Operator and King’s Challenge. They tested skills in areas like sharpshooting, hand to hand combat, building breaching automotive pursuit and evasion, medical extraction and long distance marching.”

The Annual Warrior Competition was launched in May 2009 at the King Abdullah II Special Operations Training Center, KASOTC, Amman, Jordan. The Warrior Competition was designed to demonstrate the skills being taught at KASOTC and to bring attention to KASOTC as an international center of excellence for counter-terrorism training. The 2014 Warrior Competition winners are:

First place: China represented by the Snow Leopard Unit.
Second Place: China Special Operations Unit, Sichuan Corps.
Third Place: Jordan, Royal Guard.

Lin and Singer note, “Since 2010, Chinese delegations have rocketed to the top of international special operations, police and military sniper competitions, benefiting from increased training and better weapons.  It is important to note, however, that many top special operations units were not present at this training competition (including notable US and Russian forces presently active on operations) and that the kind of skills tested in the Warrior Competition form only part of special operations and counter-terrorism capabilities.”
