  • Obama Not Embarrassed by His Scandals?

    When Barack Obama spoke at the 12th annual MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston, MA, many of us scratched our heads as to why the event was off-the-record. No photography, recording, or social media posting about Obama’s appearance was allowed. Obviously, he would not be talking about golf. But, with over 3,500 people in attendance, there was no way this speech would be hidden for long. As expected, a recording of Obama’s appearance was leaked. Obama said a lot of things over the course of an hour, but I’d like to focus on his claim that, while some people in...

    In After America (available here, he pleads, and the profits of which go to support my free-speech pushback against Michael E Mann), I write inter alia about Fort Hood, and in particular the disgraceful statement by General Casey, and the Pentagon's absurd decision to classify what happened as "workplace violence": In the days after the slaughter, the news coverage read like a satirical novel that the author's not quite deft enough to pull off, with bizarre new Catch-22s multiplying like the windmills of your mind: If you muse openly on pouring boiling oil down the throats of infidels, then the...

    There have now been 4 people confirmed dead after the second shooting at Fort Hood in five years. Pentagon sources tell CBS News that the Fort Hood shooter is a soldier — identified as 34-year-old Ivan Lopez — and that he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. CBS News reports that the shooting stemmed from a soldier dispute. According to Fox News 14 people were wounded with injuries ranging from stable to very critical. The shooting reportedly started between 4:25 and 4:30 central time and for several hours Fort Hood was in lockdown, and the nation didn't know the number...

    Sometimes heroes are not recognized when they should be. The case of COL (RET) Kathy Platoni, and her fellow survivors and victims of the Ft. Hood Terrorist Attack of November, 2009, is a sad example of this. The prevalence of political correctness is not helping in this situation. COL Platoni believes she is far from alone and that there are many heroes of this horrific terrorist attack who remain forgotten. Dr. Platoni, a now retired Army Reserve psychologist who has had her own private practice for 20 years and has been a practicing psychologist for 34 years, has had a...

    In 2010, Kimberly Munley sat next to Michelle Obama as President Barack Obama delivered his State of the Union address. Munley was invited as a hero of the 2009 Fort Hood shootings. As a civilian police officer, Munley fired back after Maj. Nidal Hasan allegedly opened fire in an attack that killed 13 adults and wounded 32. Munley was shot three times. Her partner, Mark Todd, fired the shots that brought down Hasan and ended the carnage. Three years later, Munley told ABC News reporter Brian Ross, she feels "betrayed," as Obama broke his promise to care for the Fort...

    The new judge in the Fort Hood shooting rampage case faces a controversial decision next week: whether to spare Nidal Hasan a possible death sentence and let him plead guilty in the worst mass shooting on a U.S. military installation. Hasan wants to plead guilty to 13 counts of premeditated murder, Army rules prohibit a judge from accepting a guilty plea in a death penalty case...

    A key intelligence report that could aid accused Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan's defense was being withheld by the Obama administration, Fox News Channel reported late Friday. The letter, dated Oct. 19, was sent by the general counsel for the national intelligence director -- the nation’s top intelligence official -- to the chief army prosecutor, Col. Michael Mulligan. It stated that the intelligence review requested by President Obama immediately after the shooting last year “is not reasonably available.” Robert S. Litt, general counsel for Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper, cited “highly classified, compartmented and sensitive information originating...

    An Iraqi doctor encouraged security officers at Brooke Army Medical Center to shoot him earlier this month after telling others that he planned to free accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a federal agent testified Monday. FBI counterterrorism and military intelligence operatives took a hard look at Senan Kahtan Abrahem after he went to Fort Sam Houston on Jan. 6 and approached an information booth at BAMC about seeing Hasan, according to testimony at a bail hearing Monday for Abrahem. Abrahem, an immigrant living in San Antonio, was indicted last week on a federal charge of making a...

    Virginia Muslims are calling on McDonnell (R) to disavow comments made by the Virginia Beach religious broadcaster last week in response to the shootings at Fort Hood, Tex., in which Robertson asserted that Islam is "not a religion" but a "violent political system" and that those who practice it should be treated like members of a communist or fascist party.

    And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse. -Army Chief of Staff, George W. Casey, Jr. Confident that even Diversity Expert, Oprah Winfrey wouldn’t say anything this asinine, sources say that Obama is giving serious consideration to replacing current Army Chief of Staff with Oprah Winfrey. Now that the administration has elucidated its priorities and demands diversity at any price, Obama yearns to appoint leadership more aligned with his goals. The term “diversity” is liberal code that has nothing to do with the stated agenda of “multiculturalism,” which is supposed to...

    The ranking Republican on the House intelligence committee on Tuesday night accused the White House of withholding information on the Fort Hood attack. Rep. Pete Hoekstra (Mich.) said administration officials delayed briefing members of Congress about the alleged gunman, raising "red flags" about what the White House was hiding. "When they withhold information, you always start asking questions," Hoekstra told Fox News. "That's what raises red flags. What do they know that they don't want us to know?" Hoekstra linked President Barack Obama's handling of Fort Hood to a chain of other GOP criticisms of the president, including the administration's...

    Clueless Chris Matthews: "See - we have a problem," Matthews said. "How do we know when someone like Hasan is going to make his move and do we know he's an Islamist until he's made his move? He makes a phone call or whatever, according to Reuters right now. Apparently he tried to contact al Qaeda. Is that the point at which you say, ‘This guy is dangerous?' That's not a crime to call up al Qaeda, is it? Is it? I mean, where do you stop the guy?" [VIDEO AT SITE]I love it how Dr. Jasser is trying to...

    Reporting from Ft. Hood, Texas - President Obama is slated to speak at a memorial service today at this grieving Army base, where a military psychiatrist is accused of killing 13 people in a shooting rampage. The service, scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. local time, will be a traditional military affair, with a sermon, a roll call of the dead and a rifle volley. About 3,000 spectators, as well as the families of the 12 soldiers and one civilian killed, are expected to attend. The tribute comes amid new questions about whether the shooting, in which dozens were also...

    Yesterday, 13 of our own troops were killed and 30 others were injured in Fort Hood, Texas at a secure U.S. Army base and the president is nowhere to be seen. This doesn't even surprise us, but for the people who still support Obama, you now further understand why we call you 'idiots.' Signs of Trinity church, Black Liberation Theology, Bill Ayers and Marxist professors? Hmmm.... After all, President Obama seemed to make it to Manhattan last month when Goldman Sachs, his number one Wall Street campaign contributor along with several other shadow banking firms attended an expensive DNC fundraiser...

    Today, this army wife is mad as hell. This afternoon I saw an interview on FOX with the Army Chief of Staff, General Casey. During the Q&A period, every question and answer centered around Combat Stress and suicides among our military. Not ONE person addressed the FACT that this was an individual practicing his view of Islamic Jihad. After the press conference, the cameras went back to Shep Smith at the FOX studios. The first thing he said was, “The question on everyone’s mind is, ‘Why did he do this?’” Why? WHY, you ask?? Let me tell you cowards in...
