    "However long we are keepers of the public trust, we should never forget that we are here as public servants," Mr. Obama said. Photo: Doug Mills/The New York Times President Obama, speaking at the APEC News Conference, responded to statements made by GOP presidential candidates at Saturday's NJ debate: KAPOLEI, Hawaii — President Barack Obama says the interrogation technique known as waterboarding constitutes torturing, disputing Republican presidential candidates who say they would reinstate the practice. Obama called waterboarding “torture” and said it was “contrary to America’s traditions” during a news conference at the Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. Republicans Herman Cain...

    The Snohomish County Executive Office and the Diversity Council has invited the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to conduct diversity training on Nov 14th from Noon to 1:00 pm in Public Meeting Room 1, Drewel Building in Everett. (hat tip Rose via Lynda) The idea that a Muslim Brotherhood hate group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror funding trial, the Holy Land Foundation trial, will conduct "training" to government officials is indicative of how co-opted and compromised we are. The Snohomish County Council Members scheduled CAIR to teach diversity training in order to help...
  • Ransom Kidnapping for "Jihad"

    Major League Baseball player Wilson Ramos kidnapped in Venezuela.As of this writing there is still no news of any groups, or individuals, claiming responsibility or demand for ransom as of yet.Also, as of this writing,- while much reporting in the MSM has covered the increase in ransom kidnappings in Venezuela, none are reporting on the link between ransom kidnappings to finance "jihad", or the cooperation between Islamists and the drug cartels.  Kidnappings are on the rise in Hugo Chavez's Hizbullah-Iran friendly Venezuela.Under Chavez, Venezuela has become an Islamist jihadist sanctuary.As Islamists have increasingly made in-roads into Latin America many violent acts of terror, typical of jihad-terror...

    On Wednesday, the strange news flew across the nation’s wires that four men from Georgia, in their upper-sixties and early-seventies, had been arrested on Tuesday for an alleged plot to attack state and federal officials and buildings. The fantastic story involves Frederick Thomas, 73, of Cleveland, GA, Dan Roberts, 67, of Toccoa, GA, Ray H. Adams, 65, of Toccoa, and Samuel J. Crump, 68, of Toccoa. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), they are accused of planning to procure an unregistered explosive device and a silencer and to manufacture the bio-toxin ricin for use against fellow American citizens,...
  • Somali suicide bomber believed to be from Minneapolis (SHOCK!)

    10/30/2011 4:21:57 PM PDT · by ButThreeLeftsDo · 17 replies ^ | 10/30/11 | AP
    Minnesota Somalis said Sunday that they believe a man who made a tape posted by an al-Qaida-linked Somali militant group and then blew himself up in an attack on an African Union base in Mogadishu was a U.S. citizen from Minneapolis. The young man, who would be at least the fourth American and possibly the third Minnesotan to become a suicide bomber in Somalia, urges other young people not to "just chill all day" and instead fight nonbelievers around the world. The website, often used by the al-Shabab militia, said Somali-American bomber Abdisalan Taqabalahullaah had emigrated to the United...

    Family Security Matters ^ | October 28 2011 | Amil Imani
    It is not about God or love, it is about control and domination—just as sadism is not about human intercourse or love; it is about control, torture, punishment and domination. Why else name a so-called religion "submission?" Islam’s provisions are intended to dominate every waking moment in the life of a believer. Islam seeks nothing less than a total global domination. There is no room for being a half-hearted Muslim and no toleration of watering down its invocations. How do the Islamists prey upon their victims? For one, Islam is stamped on the impressionable mind of the child from birth....

    Amid extraordinary security, the Constitution was placed on trial this afternoon alongside an American-born Muslim of privilege as lawyers for Tarek Mehanna argued the religious and political beliefs of the accused terrorist — while perhaps treason to some — are “what make America so great, so strong, so free.” “We’re not afraid of what other people say. At least, we’re not supposed to be,” defense attorney J.W. Carney Jr. said of Mehanna, 29, a Sudbury pharmacist federal prosecutors today told jurors was maturing into an increasingly prolific mouthpiece for al-Qaeda and its late leader Osama bin Laden. Mehanna, assistant U.S....

    NEW DELHI: One after another, five countries - US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand - have issued advisories against travel to India during the festival season. The ostensible reason for the caution is terror threat at this time, but the Indian government isn't impressed. It fears the advisories will hit tourism and says terror shouldn't be used to create a scare about visiting India. "I have taken up this with the external affairs ministry and asked it to persuade these countries to withdraw the travel advisories immediately," Union tourism minister Subodh Kant Sahay told TOI. "This is nothing but...

    The IDF’s Ashdod-based Navy unit deals with terrorist activity on a daily basis, security reconnaissance commander “D” said in the military’s Mahane magazine. .The routine security reconnaissance company of the Ashdod base was assigned the responsibility to maintain Israel's maritime closure on Gaza since the completion of Operation Cast Lead. Israel clamped the embargo on Hamas-controlled Gaza to prevent the smuggling of more advanced weapons and terrorists. Captain “D” explained that the soldiers train with mock ships attempting suicide against IDF vessels, terrorist boats out at sea, and even terrorist activity on shore. "Our threat is constant. We deal with...

    OKLAHOMA CITY – So far, the only presidential candidate to seriously address the recent decision by President Obama to send 100 military advisors to Uganda to assist in capturing the leaders of the terror group Lord’s Resistance Army is libertarian-leading Gary Johnson. Johnson, the former, two-term Republican governor of New Mexico, addressed the question from Red Dirt Report regarding the plan to cripple the LRA after two decades of operating with impunity. The LRA, numbering now at approximately 400 rebels, many mostly kidnapped, conscripted children, has targeted villagers largely in northern Uganda, raping maiming, and murdering among other atrocities. So,...

    A federal jury Thursday convicted two Rochester women of conspiring to help an Al-Qaida affiliate in their native Somalia under the guise of raising money for the poor. Amina Farah Ali, 35, and Hawo Mohamed Hassan, 64, were the first people to go on trial in connection with a sweeping federal investigation into alleged recruitment and fundraising activities in Minnesota for Al-Shabab -- classified by U.S. authorities in February 2008 as a foreign terrorist organization. Under U.S. law, it is illegal to support a foreign terrorist group. Both were found guilty on all counts. Al-Shabab and other militia groups are...

It now appears that our interconnected smart grid is actively under attack, as evidenced by a new Stuxnet-style trojan that has been detected by major cyber security leaders Symantec and McAfee.

    On the eve of the terrorist prisoner exchange that will bring home kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, Arab terrorists are gaining confidence and becoming inspired to increase attacks on the road and in Israeli cities. In at least two locations on Highway 60 in Judea, Palestinian Authority Arabs terrorists attacked Israeli travelers. At about 8:30 p.m. terrorists hurled a firebomb at an Israeli bus as it passed the village of El Aroub south of Bethlehem, just five minutes down the road from Gush Etzion. No one was injured, but the bus was damaged. IDF soldiers launched a search for the...

    It was a clear moment of satisfaction for US Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder has in the past been accused of weakness and ineffectiveness in the fight against Islamic terror, but now he could announce the foiling of an Iranian plot to assassinate foreign diplomats in Washington. The news that the Iranians had tried to work through a Mexican drug cartel only confirms the testimony before congressional committees that Iran is active in Latin America and uses the drug trade to facilitate and fund terrorism. The United States is committed to holding Iran accountable for its actions” and would take...

    A Somali woman charged with supporting terrorists refused to stand when the judge and jury entered a federal courtroom in Minneapolis on Monday, igniting a battle of wills with the chief federal judge presiding over her trial. Amina Farah Ali, 35, cited her religious beliefs in declining to stand, but U.S. Chief Judge Michael J. Davis wasn't having it. He ruled that she was in contempt of court, giving her five days in jail for each of the five times she refused to rise Monday -- a total of 25 days to be served after her trial ends.

    NRO ^ | Sep/30/11 | R. Spencer & D. Horowitz
    Not all fears are irrational, nor criticism unwarranted. In recent months, several reports have appeared to a generally uncritical reception in the press, which purport to expose alleged conspiracies organized by “Islamophobes” against American citizens who mean us no harm. These reports single out for condemnation a dozen prominent conservative figures (and mostly the same dozen) who have publicly criticized the misogyny, bigotry, and terrorism promoted by many (but not all) Islamic institutions and religious texts. The term “Islamophobia” itself was invented by the Muslim Brotherhood, which is the political fountainhead of Islamic terror, having spawned al-Qaeda and created Hamas....

    Last week Adm. Mullen told the Senate Armed Services Committee the American Military had “credible intelligence” that the Pakistani Intelligence Services was the guiding hand behind the Sept 13 Tet Offensive like attack on Kabul and the truck bombing on a American base killing Afghanis and wounding 77 American soldiers. As previously reported on here, the Haqqani Network, a band of terrorists, are provided a sanctuary in Pakistan and in turn serve as proxy to assert Pakistan’s influence in Afghanistan. The Admiral’s assertions were the first time a senior official has acknowledged the link between the Haqqani Network and the...

    Chicago has won a $54.6 million federal grant to fund security and emergency planning and cooperation among the city, Cook County and the state as preparations begin to ramp up for the G-8 and NATO summits being held here next May. While the money is to be shared among city, county and state emergency management agencies, Chicago's top emergency planner said the grant will be most useful in planning training exercises to handle security at the simultaneous economic and defense summits, which are likely to attract thousands of demonstrators. Gary Schenkel, director of the Chicago Office of Emergency Management and...
