  • Trump: I Would Support Women in Combat Roles

    I still support Trump, but he just got another negative point. I’m getting closer to being a full time Cruz supporter.

    Same here.

    Just think what an opportunity this was to say "no, I support women in the military, but on the infantry front lines? I don't think it's wise to force the generals to do this. "

    Men have, or should have, an innate protective sense when it comes to their women, I guess mine just kicked in".

    I like all the plans better than what we have, as to the Cruz plan a lot to like, but this paragraph from the article for me needs explanation:

    Third, because the Cruz and Paul plans are "border adjustable": Imports are taxed at the flat rate when they are brought into the U.S., but American products sold abroad are not taxed at all.

    What is the manner by which imports would be taxed? As an example, wouldn't a Toyota's price increase by the amount of the corporate rate? And nearly everything purchased at Walmart? I'm ok with taxing imports and reducing taxes on exports, clearly more domestic jobs there, can someone explain this a bit further?

    IHey, I am a woman and I think football is fun and exciting to watch. But I also love brains and hate neurodegenerative diseases. If there is a way to keep football, football, and reduce the risk that the guy you cheer for will be stuttering and peeing his pants at 55, I’m all for it. I actually used to watch boxing before I knew what it did and then lost all interest. Any sport CAN give you concussions but when sports are routinely doing so, I’m all about changing up something to reduce the risk.

    No argument with anything you say.

    My point is that football, from pee-wee leagues to the NFL, is under siege, under siege by the Left, for what it says about the differences between men and women. The ultimate goal in what we are seeing here is not just making football safer, as admirable and necessary as progress in this area happens to be. Now might be a good time to call for a time out.

    Radical feminism and the gender wars are part the Left's decades-long war on the family unit. These people can multi-task with the best of them. Admittedly, much good can come of this, but how many causes in the name of legitimate good become co-opted and usurped for the benefit of "progress" among those on the Left?

    Along with the lesbian kiss, it seems mandatory now for TV shows to depict 110 pound women defeating much larger males, even big, strapping ones, physically. Though seemingly innocuous, I worry about this very dangerous subliminal message to our children.

    Political power is the end, and abortion, thrusting women to the front lines of the military, the elimination of chivalry and male protective instincts are implements in the ruse. Part of what conservatism exists to "conserve" are these very roles that lend themselves to societal betterment.

    I know I was being cryptic and vague in my post, but I don't want to lose football. It is perhaps one of the last places left, now that women are moving to the front lines of the military,, that men can still be men.

    Surprise, surprise, football is under assault. Interesting. Part of the war on the manly man?

    Maybe.

    It’s played on a grid, and therefore is visually organized. Feelings play no role. The rules require the collective defense of territory, and allow the military-like seizure of same.

    There are lines....straight lines all. Football involves precise measurements, sometimes down to mere inches. Rewards for crossing lines......hmmm.

    Football has ground forces, and units dedicated to air power. Strategic and tactical planning is required, X’s and O’s......and arrows. Again, visually organized. Echoes of Gutenberg. The police here wear black and white.

    There’s strategic retreat-the punt. There’s a place for the big, and a place for the small. No place for the weak, except the place-kicker, though he must possess a strong leg, and bear the ultimate in mental pressure.

    There’s off-the-field leadership and planning, on-the field generalship for execution of the battle plan. There are secrets, coded messages, uniforms, interim plan adjustments, and on-the-battlefield meetings. There are physical sacrifices, and corporal danger.

    It’s ritual war.

    It’s just no place for women.

    Maybe that’s why it’s got to go?

    Football celebrates sheer physical power. Perhaps more than any other sport, women cannot contemplate equal participation. Interesting, instructive, and in a former world, fittingly wonderful that when females do participate it involves....lingerie.

    This is so funny......and instructive.

    The liberal brand seems to have become a bit tainted now, huh?

    The descriptor was co-opted by the Left in the first place. Their movement has been functionally illiberal, contra-liberal for decades. For that matter, “progressive” is beginning to acquire a somewhat odoriferous connotation isn’t it? For sure, they brought it on themselves.

    We need to hit them where it hurts, the nomenclature is of immense importance. Are they socialists? Marxists? Communists? Fascists? What they are can best be described as nihilists, but I’m not sure we can make that stick.

    At the water cooler, I like to call them anti-capitalists, because my liberal friends have great difficulty denying it, so it’s an easy argument to win. They want so badly to admit it. Then it’s easier to segue into tagging them with one or more of the above.

    wayoverontheright to Darksheare
    Would be better off refining it here and using it to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

    OK, I'm open minded on this premise. I've been under the impression that this would be a good thing for our economy. Someone convince me it's not.

    Here are what I believe are some of the arguments against the premise that the freedom to export our oil is a bad thing:

    We are not providing this oil free of charge. Dollars come into the coffers of American (in this case Texas) extractors, and therefore by definition provide employment to Americans. More jobs at the wells, more jobs in transport, more jobs at the port. Do we want more export of American produced goods and services, or not?

    We have to assume that if the oil being exported were more "needed" by American refiners, then the refiners would simply out-bid the European purchasers. The market is therefore saying that this oil is redundant, and absent the European buyers, might remain in the ground, no?

    I'm not sure that, with the American shale-oil boom, that it can be said that we are still "dependent"on foreign oil. Perhaps we have reached a point where we are dependent on cheaper-to -extract foreign oil, and foreign oil that our refineries are better suited to refine at this time. The cause of this can be attributed to the severe regulations regarding the building of new refineries in our country, geared to process the different consistency of this "new" American crude, is this not a factor?

    I'd like to import nothing at all, but to me the benefit to consumers is always forgotten in these discussions. I've always felt that the reason the left hates Walmart so much is that, on net, Walmart has done more for the American poor than all the Democrat party "programs" combined, via cheaper prices. Should we deprive American consumers this benefit, admittedly provided by China and others willing to enable Walmart to put cheaper goods on our shelves? Isn't the solution to the problem worse than the problem, in that only an over-bearing federal government can remedy this situation? Economic freedom cannot accrue to American consumers if American companies cannot enjoy the same freedoms, this is the reality, and always will be.

    From the geo-political standpoint, how can the fact that the OPECkers are now begging us to keep buying their crude not indicate that it is far less dangerous to purchase their oil than admittedly it once was? Our allies in Europe are the buyers of this American crude, isn't it making them less reliant on purchasing from the Middle East, and perhaps more importantly, from Vladimir Putin? How does this net out from a geo-political standpoint? Don't we still need friends? (I know....Obama. Fly in the ointment here, but not much longer.....).

    The one thing that makes me think I might be wrong, and those who think this new "right" to export is a bad thing may be right, is that Obama allowed it to happen, and therefore, it must be bad for our country in some way. I just can't get my head around why he has allowed this to happen. It's completely out of character. Perhaps others on this board can enlighten me?

    At any rate, I can be convinced that maybe it is a bad thing that our extractors now have the right to export, but I'd like to hear more evidence from those who make that claim.

  • Psychology: Deradicalizing Muslim terrorists (very interesting)

    01/30/2016 6:49:42 AM PST · 73 of 166
    wayoverontheright to RoosterRedux

    Because adherents to Islam are largely in denial, there is no solution to the Muslim problem that doesn’t involve consequences which accrue to all Muslims. Placing our faith in individual conversions is suicidal at this point in time.

    There are those within Islam who commit the atrocities, and those who are being allowed to separate themselves from responsibility. We cannot read minds. This fact eliminates individual treatment, which is precisely why the liberal obsession with treating the Muslim problem as a law and order matter is doomed from the start.

    If we want to survive, we must begin to see the problem as existential. Then we must realize we must view the enemy as a collective. Sadly, measures must by necessity be unapologetic about “collateral damage”, unabashed about having a punitive, retaliatory flavor. Only when Muslims see that we are unafraid to display our anger and fear, will they themselves begin to police their own.

    America must become an inhospitable place to practice Islam. Islam throughout the world is not functioning as a religion, it is functioning as a cultural invasion, bent on the destruction of all others.

    An example of measures that meet the requirements for properly dealing with the problem is Donald Trump’s suggestion that perhaps we should pause all immigration from certain Muslim countries. Do consequences, or potential ones at least, accrue to all Muslims? Yes. Does it risk harming “innocent” Muslims? Check. Is it then, punitive in nature? As it must be. Only measures which possess these characteristics will have the possibility of focussing the Muslim mind, and putting the burden where it belongs in order for change to occur.

    Mosques must be surveilled and monitored for the crime of acquiescing to jihad, not just to preaching jihad. A separate legal framework must be enacted to not only single out Islam, but treat it as we would any other treasonous entity. The collective must be brought to court (RICO?) convicted, and in addition to revocation of tax-exempt status, sentenced to community service. Your mosque can stand if you are handing over radical elements to the authorities. Your mosque can stand if you are actively preaching peace and tolerance, a requirement for being seen as, and treated as, a true religion.

    “Moderate” Muslims will have little choice but to begin the process of reform, at least if they want to practice their “religion” in this country., Those abroad will be forced to pick another target, because Islam has always sought out weakness, and America will be weak no more.

    Ms. Noor, please help me understand how we can tell the “good” Muslims from the “few?” who may be out to blow us up? How can we stop our minds from thinking certain thoughts when encountering young Arab males in a shopping mall? Or Islamic-garbed males and females in an airline queue?

    Whose fault is it that we think these thoughts?

    You seem to believe that ALL of us need to be lectured and shamed for what backlash could occur, yet WE are asked to refrain from profiling. Can you teach us to read minds? You “moderate” Muslims (and liberals) attempt to shame us when it is you who must be shamed in order to begin to act to solve the Islamic terror problem.

    You say that some have perverted your religion? Do you wish to point out which ones they are? No, you’re afraid for your life if you do, are you not?. Why are we not afforded the same right to act on our fears?

    There is no solution, if those like you won’t turn on your own, for us to protect ourselves without measures that sadly and by necessity may accrue to ALL Muslims. This is why most of us agree with Donald Trump when he says wait a minute, let’s stop Muslim immigration now, perhaps the consequences will befall some like you Ms. Noor, and you will begin to be part of the solution instead of the problem.

    We can’t read minds. And unless you can provide us with this ability, shut up!

    Noor, who has equated Trump with Adolf Hitler, will most likely address Muslim-related issues with the candidates. Quite possibly, Noor will question Trump's plan to temporarily close U.S. immigration to Muslims.

    Ms. Noor, please help me understand how a solution to the problem of Islamic terror cannot involve consequences which sadly, may have to accrue to all Muslims. Can we read minds? How do we know "good" Muslims from bad, when walking into a shopping mall, or getting on a plane? You are advocating that we not profile all Muslims, but do we have any choice?

    The radicals who commit atrocities in the name of your god are not being shamed by people like you. When Muslims speak out, it is not to offer a solution to the problem within their own religion, but to shame US for a perfectly sane reaction to terror. We don't know which of you are the problem, we just know we can be killed at any moment by someone who says they embrace the same god that you embrace.

    Perhaps a measure that bans immigration from Muslim countries will harm innocents, but that apparently is what is needed to motivate the "good" Muslims to excise the problems within their own culture, not ask us to risk life and limb because you refuse to do so.

    I would rather that Trump face the "questions", the attacks, in this manner, than refuse to attend. Perhaps he feels he won't be given the chance?

    Could it be these guns were meant for El Chapo and others like him? In exchange for......under the radar..... "donations"?

    Obama has always been a vindictive sort. In 2009 the elected President of Honduras attempted to go full Hugo Chavez, and demanded an unconstitutional extra term. Zelaya was then ousted by the Honduran legal system. Obama publicly supported Zelaya against the will of the Honduran people. Zelaya was subsequently deposed, which gave the arrogant American President his first big black eye. Vindictive, remember.

    I’ll vote for Trump ok, but hopefully he’ll come to his senses on some things, like.......

    He doesn’t blame the Mexican people, he blames the weakness of American leaders and Mexican politicians.

    He doesn’t blame the Chinese people, but the American leaders, and the Chinese politicians.

    He does blame Ford executives, who happen to be American people, and not the Mexican politicians, because his solution to corporate exodus is to punish those “American people”at Ford.

    A 35% tariff on imported American manufacturing abroad would work, of course, but this is the liberal way of doing things-that is, to use federal government power to coerce, always rife with unintended consequences.

    The way to do this is to remove the obstacles that cause the exodus. Trump’s tax plan, which includes a corporate tax rate reduction, actually works toward this end in a great way. Removing other obstacles, such as labor laws that still favor unions, also works toward this end. And Obamacare, federal overreach by OSHA, EPA, Dodd Frank, Sarbanes Oxley, the list goes on.

    Cheap labor is perhaps the least among reasons to move a plant outside the borders, but Trump in Ford’s case wants to impugn the decision makers instead of the American politicians.

    It is herin clear that Donald Trump has liberal sensibilities. Again, I’ll vote for him because he truly does want to make America great again, but she’ll be greater if we just remove government interference in private sector decision making, instead of increasing it with a tariff. Hopefully he will hire people to advise him, like Sarah Palin, because she, like many others, will “get it” on this issue and others.

    Just my two cents.

    I suppose we should have seen it coming, but it is astounding to me that, in 2016 America, the Democratic Party will in the end run an avowed socialist for the office of the Presidency.

    Barack Obama we can now conclude attempted to eradicate American capitalism, certainly those sectors that he chose to eliminate, while co-opting others through collusion and extortion. Functionally, Obama has been a fascist. But he at least tried to obscure his anti-capitalist views with rhetoric.

    Bernie Sanders. Really? I’m gobsmacked.

    And among the three-Hillary Clinton, Obama, and Sanders-Bernie is the least dangerous. Bernie’s vision for America is Sweden, Norway, Denmark perhaps. Who can now deny that Barack Obama’s template for America’s future isn’t Venezuela? Or Cuba? Hillary just wants to change America into something different, not sure she has a vision. For Hillary, the threat of change is just a mechanism for acquiring and maintaining power.

    I’m not sure what Donald Trump’s vision is for America, it seems he wants us to be what we once were, and that’s not a bad thing at this juncture. His popularity is certainly an indication that America is awakening to the disaster that the Democratic Party portends for our country. Or what’s left of it.

    Very good article.

    Nothing fazes this unshakeable belief in his own uniqueness. I suppose it’s his way of maintaining psychological equilibrium. His aura of confidence is what got him to where he is, he won’t relinquish it. He can’t.

    We’ll never convince him of how reviled he is. If Barack Obama somehow ends up with consequences, well, he’ll become like those who kill their own children and deny it all the way to the ultimate punishment.

    Hillary Clinton shares all the above traits with Obama. Liberalism is truly a disease.

    It clearly was Barack Obama’s intent, from the beginning, to destroy certain sectors of the American economy, while utilizing government largesse to co-opt, in fascist fashion, other sectors.

    He has failed for one reason only-the massive decrease in the price of fossil fuels. Thank God for private property laws.

    Domestic crude extractors and downstream suppliers suffer greatly, but we always seem to forget the tremendous benefit that accrues to 320 million consumers, including many firms who also are consumers of fossil fuels. So there’s bad and good, but the bad is somewhat limited in scope, and the good is widespread.

    American capitalism should be dead now after seven years of this crap, but it’s not. Hopefully we can hang on until Obama and his Dem party anti capitalists are gone.

    The interests of modern day liberalism and Islamists are in concert because none of the goals of either can be achieved without first bringing capitalism to its knees. Islam thus becomes a surgical tool of the left, while political correctness and belligerent rhetoric combine to anesthetize the patient. The doctors are not trying to remove the cancer from the patient, they are attempting to insert it.

    We are being duped. Our problem has never been “radical” Islam, our problem is Islam. Whether it is a religion or not is irrelevant-what is relevant is that its goal is anarchy, without which the left’s utopian dream cannot become reality.

    So they purport to be at odds, but theirs is truly a marriage of convenience. We should not be surprised that liberals would want to defend Islam, they have common goals.

    I can no longer see my liberal friends as merely wrong, as benign. It is sad, but the ideological and strategic union with Islamism makes liberalism an existential threat that it has never been in this country. “Tolerance” can no longer be a virtue. There is no solution to the Muslim problem that does not involve consequences that accrue to all Muslims. Our “goodness” is being used against us, and will kill us all in the end if we don’t recognize and acknowledge the charade for what it is.

    Liberalism, as represented by Obama, Hillary, and Bernie Sanders, is at one with Islam, in that none of the aims of either cabal can be realized without the eradication of capitalism. This is the nexus, this is where they meet.

    I can no longer think of my liberal friends as harmless dreamers.

    Liberals? Well, we’re probably going to vote them out of power soon, but they won’t go away for long. Muslims....I can think of no solution to the Muslim problem that doesn’t begin by being able to say that the religion functions as an anarchist movement.

    This means that no solution can be contemplated that doesn’t involve consequences that accrue to all practitioners of the “religion”, at least in this country. Mosques and other assets must be seized. Our country must become the most inhospitable place in the world for Muslims. Sad, but necessitated by our inability to read minds, and by their unwillingness to police their own.

    These same people who say Islam has NOTHING TO DO with murder and mayhem ARE THE SAME PEOPLE who told us the Confederate FLAG had to be banned because it inspired murder and mayhem.

    Now that is a profound analogy.

    Liberals and Islamists share the same goals, none of which can be achieved without the eradication of capitalism. Islam is thus a tool of the left, we should not be surprised when liberals defend Islam.

    There can be no solution to the Muslim problem that does not involve consequences that accrue to all Muslims. We cannot continue to acquiesce to being asked to read minds in order to survive.

    wayoverontheright to CincyRichieRich

    It should be incontrovertible that falling oil prices should be good for the overall economy, even if it’s bad for US producers.

    Consumers, manufacturers, and service sectors all benefit greatly. And let’s remember, even within the oil sector the damage is limited to extractors. Distributors and retailers maintain their margins.

    There should be far more companies listed on the exchanges that benefit from the drop, than the small number who lose value. So I don’t buy the assertion that the “stock market” did poorly because of the drop in oil prices. The author seems to suggest “we” need an increase in the price of oil for the economy to benefit. This is ludicrous. Maybe I missed something, refused to sign up to read th whole article at the link.

    Then there’s natural gas, always forgotten in these discussions. Nat gas is the primary feedstock for plastics, packaging, pharmaceuticals, fertilizer, and transportation directly, and therefore affects the price of everything we consume, and these benefits are just now beginning to show up.

    The fall in the price of energy may be the only reason the American economy is still standing, after the assault on capitalism we’ve seen from Obama for the last seven years. There’s sweet irony in this, in that the only reason this energy revolution even happened is because it played out exclusively on private property, and Obama couldn’t do anything about it. Or he most assuredly would have stopped it in its tracks.

    The abortion issue has been the concrete slab, and it is beginning to crack. And it really, really frightens liberals that this is happening. They are losing unions. They are losing their battles against the first and second amendments. They are losing the young, and thus independent voters.

    And they are losing their decades-long monopoly on the black vote. Thus, the racist card must be played.

    Islam is the problem, not radical Islam. This is why the jihad has endured for 14 centuries. It is also why Trump's plan, which applies to all Muslims, is so powerful. We cannot continue to give them an out by pretending we have the ability to discern to "good" ones among them. Isn't this the lesson of San Bernardino?

    There simply is no solution to this problem that doesn’t by necessity involve consequences that accrue to all adherents to Islam, good and bad.

    We can begin by refusing to attach the word “radical” to “Islam”. Trump’s policy does this, and that’s why the reaction to it is so visceral. Radical Islam is not the problem, Islam is the problem, or at least this is the only frame of mind in which we may be able to attack the problem.

    Determining which muslims are “good” and which are bad is a distinction, short of having the ability to read minds, that we have not the ability to make.

    wayoverontheright to 2ndDivisionVet

    It is becoming apparent that San Bernardino is a cathartic, seminal event for Americans. More so, perhaps, than 9-11.

    The California massacre has the distinction of having been carried out by someone who had every reason to not only assimilate, but to embrace the country in which he was born. We all know someone like him. This is a betrayal, and it exposes the futility of continuing to attach the word “radical” to the word “Islam”.

    The people feel they have been put into a position that requires them to read minds in order to feel safe, or protect their own, and San Bernardino brought this to the fore. Where it happened, how it happened, and who did it makes this a significant emotional event for Americans.

    Trump’s proposal, in singling out all immigrant muslims not yet having arrived, becomes the first to break through the definitional logjam, and detach the word “radical” from the conversation. In the minds of the people, this makes the policy more sane, not less.

    Perhaps San Bernadino will become the turning point, the event which signaled a change of course, a change in the way Islam is viewed. Certainly, Islam now qualifies in the minds of most Americans as deserving a different legal status-that of a dangerous cult-instead of a religion entitled to constitutional protections. Trump sees it, and the reaction to his proposal, on both sides of the aisle, exposes those who don’t as downright dangerous, IMHO.

    If I am wrong, and we continue the current course, this is headed for the people taking matters into their own hands. Knowing we have not the ability to read minds, Americans can make this country a very inhospitable place for muslims. If they know what’s good for them, Trump’s proposal should now focus the American muslim mind in such a manner that they finally begin to police their own.
    Who can wonder why they have not, given the out we have provided them with the insistence on blaming this only on “radicals”, instead of Islam itself? Who can believe that not one “good” muslim became privy to what Sayed and Tashfeen were up to?

    Ironically, this makes Trump’s proposal the only humane one. If we continue the current course, mosques will burn, and vigilantism will spell death for muslims in America. San Bernardino has crystalized in the everyday American’s mind that there is no solution to this problem that doesn’t involve consequences that accrue to all muslims, good and bad, because we simply can no longer tolerate being asked to read their minds.

    With this announcement by Josh Earnest, Obama reveals he is frightened at the prospect of a Trump presidency. Perhaps petrified.

    This is no small development, but they’re making a big mistake in not realizing where the American people actually stand on this.

    They are attempting to paint Trump as nutty, but what could be more nutty than Kerry, Obama, and Hillary (not to mention most Republicans) declaring that this is “not about Islam”? The people are beginning to see right through this.

    It is sinking in now, with an assist from Trump, that the problem never has been “radical” Islam, the problem is Islam. Trump’s proposal is the first to break through this definitional logjam, and the people sense it to be correct. The problem for the elites is that we have come to the realization that we cannot read minds. We cannot know which muslim is radical and which is not. There is no solution whereby consequences don’t accrue to all muslims, radical or no, because we have not the ability to distinguish.

    The San Bernardino massacre has made this an existential issue, and the people feel un-protected.

    If we think about it, there is a humane element to what Trump proposes, because this is headed for a situation in which, feeling unprotected, the people will begin to take matters into their own hands. Another massacre and we may see a backlash that leaves no muslim safe on our soil. That’s where this is headed.

    Only if consequences begin to accrue to all muslims, will we have created a climate in which they will be compelled to police themselves.

    Trump’s policy is the beginning of a sane, humane policy, where Islam is deemed to be the problem, not just “radical” Islam. This is where we must go if we’re going to keep our country.

    We must stop advocating for the word "radical" to be attached to Islam, the whole belief structure is radical. Whatever we do, and what Trump suggests should only be the beginning, we must risk that consequences accrue to all Islamists, else we are giving Islam an out, IMHO.

    Once we have stopped immigration of all Islamists, deportation should be the next conversation.

    wayoverontheright to Biggirl

    I’m sure this particular speech added to the frustration many Americans feel.

    So what would a real solution look like?

    To begin with, there can be no more “radical” Islam. Continuing to make this distinction is counter-productive, no, it is suicidal. No effective “fighting back” can occur until this is achieved. This is a seemingly daunting task, but the right person in the Oval Office could get it done.

    We must fight the war simultaneously on two fronts. Obviously, to all but Obama and liberals, we must take it to ISIS with all our military might in the Middle East, to eliminate any hope of a caliphate.

    On the domestic front, a solution simply cannot be contemplated that does not involve the relegation of the Islamic religion to the status of a dangerous cult, in law. The legal framework designed to combat the Mafia, or the KKK, would be insufficient to combat the death machine that Islam has become.
    Resolve must be demonstrated, so the solution will by necessity have a punitive, retaliatory flavor, with no apologies for “collateral” damage. It has come to this.

    Unfortunately, consequences must accrue to all who embrace Islam, because we have not the ability to read minds, and we wish to remain alive. A shame, for sure, but Islam can no longer be treated as a religion. Functionally, Islam is not a religion, it is a political entity masquerading as a religion.

    On the domestic front, mosques should be outlawed,and closed. Not unlike the decision FDR had to make with domestic Japanese citizens during WWII, Islamists must be given the choice of deportation or incarceration.

    This would be the humane thing to do, precisely because there are “good” muslims. This is headed for the people taking this into their own hands, and the mosques will burn, and vigilantism is a very real possibility since our President chose the status quo last night. This would not be a good thing for muslims in America.

    If you are a liberal and you are acquiescing to the policies this president has said he wants to continue, then you should begin now apologizing to the families of future dead Americans.

    People are angry, and they are afraid. Maybe 14 dead Californians won’t be the cathartic moment, but that moment is coming, and soon.

    Don’t know if this means anything but it has been conjectured that Tashfeen Malik is not her real name.

    “Tashfeen” is Urdu (Pakistani) spelling of Tashfin, meaning “sympathetic”. Malik is arabic for “King”.

    Yusuf ibn Tashfin was a Muslim conqueror of North Africa and Andalusia in the 11th century, pretty much a hero in Islamic history.

    It has always been part of Islamic Jihadi planning to choose symbolic dates and names when plotting terror. Just saying’.

    I’m of the belief that Tashfeen radicalized Sayed, and we may find this was by design. She snagged him online perhaps for a reason.

    Is it a stretch to contemplate that Tashfeen Malik is the instigator, at the behest of terrorist handlers in the Middle East?

    Is Sayed the dupe in a terrorist ruse?

    This would explain the “cover” actions such as a) having the baby, and b) allowing friends to give a baby shower, registering for gifts, etc.

    The total picture is indeed very muddied.

    I'll say.

    I would imagine the Saudis had to make a request for the US assistance, and at the time, the interests of all Sunni-Arab nations had aligned with those of Israel, in a way they never had before the Iran nuke negotiations focussed everyone's mind.

    Is it possible there was a quid-pro-quo, and it involved a threat by the Sunnis to request Bibi's help in Yemen if Obama didn't help them? Israel, in my opinion, would have jumped on the opportunity. The Saudis considered Iranian influence in Yemen to be an existential problem, and the coalition was put together in a matter of days, after years of disfunction within the Arab League from which it sprang.

    In other words, Bibi, you help us with Yemen, and we'll provide you with airspace and logistics to attack Iran?

    And it never happened because Obama caved, and if you'll notice, so did Iran. In Yemen at least. Maybe Obama told the Iranians, and they considered it to be the lesser evil to give up on Yemen, because the Mullahs REALLY don't want the "Arab Coalition plus Israel" to become a reality.

    There’s only one problem with the thesis.

    Yemen.

    Yemeni President Hadi has already returned to Aden, soon Sanaa will fall. This simply could not have been accomplished without American in-flight refueling of Saudi and UAE bomb-laden jets.

    I never could get my head around this, as it was during the tense final days of the Iran-nuke agreement negotiations that the decision was made to supply refueling services to enable the attacks in Yemen, completely contrary to Iranian interests there. And Iran wanted Yemen, almost had control through their Houthi proxies, and as such, Hadi’s return to Aden is a tremendous defeat for the Mullahs.

    A big black eye. Enabled, no-not possible at all-without Obama’s decision to provide the critical mid-air refueling that all the Sunni-Arab coalition sorties required.

    How does this square with the thesis that Obama wants the Iranians to dominate the region? During this time, Obama also approved delivery of American weaponry to Egypt, to el-Sisi, whom he obviously abhors. What’s up with this?

    To me, he’s been playing both sides, hopefully, someone here can help me understand why I’m wrong.
