Canada and the Emerging Terror Threat From the North

The XX Committee

This week an article in The Daily Beast ruffled feathers by noting that Canada, our placid neighbor to the north, has a large and growing problem with radical Islam. It went so far as to suggest that, despite much Trumpian commotion about a wall facing south, it’s not just the Mexican border that needs watching by American security agencies: the threat from the Great White North may be just as serious.

This claim was met with some skepticism and even derision. Canada? That’s a very nice country that most Americans think kindly of but little about. The notion that Canada—which, frankly, is a tad boring—is the source of any sort of threat to the United States sounds a bit, well, out there to most people.

Except that it happens to be entirely true. If anything, the piece in The Daily Beast, which was light on counterterrorism specifics…

Dem Debate

I couldn’t believe the Dem Debate on CBS tonight. The Democratic party has turned into a delusional cult. Even after the attack on Paris no one on that stage could bring themselves to call the enemy by name. Radical Islamic extremism is the enemy. If one think climate change is the cause for ISIS forming is delusional and insane. Islamic extremism has been around for 1400 years now.

It didn’t take long to see liberals claiming the attackers became the victim because western civilization hasn’t been sensitive enough. which is exactly how this administrations policies have been. So, now I guess in Bernie Sander’s demented noggin, his  brilliant deduction is. Climate change is the reason ISIS has reared it’s ugly head because the the industrial complex has destroyed the atmosphere to the extent these nut jobs can’t grow food. And is cause for economical collapse in the middle east.

All the candidates all but came out and said the reason for ISIS and other radical Islamic extremism is from our lack of diversity and that somehow, they are the victims. Just before I decided to write this I read an article from Haaretz about a neighborhood in Paris describing the attackers as victims.

When are people going to realize these radicals do not care about diplomacy or coexisting with the rest of the world. Radical Islam wants and are fighting for a world wide caliphate. They don’t care about anything else other than having Islam rule the world and exterminate infidels. These maniacal and barbaric animals worked closely with the Nazi’s during WWll. And have implemented many of the tactics and strategy used by the Nazis. They are indoctrinating their youth and disenfranchised like nobodies business. Why do you think Islam is spreading through the prisons? Inmates are the perfect recruitment material because they are disenfranchised from society.

Until the civilized world gets the a stomach full of these barbaric actions terrorism will continue. More attacks like the one in Paris will happen and it won’t be too long in the future it hits U.S. shores. In some ways it already has. The woman decapitated in Oklahoma due to “workplace violence”. Or the latest stabbing when a jihadi decided to stab other students because they kicked him out of Glee Club or some other shit.

Hearing Assad say it’s France’s fault for their policies, what a joke.

As usual the debate continued with blaming capitalism and government not being big enough, while touting for freedom for everyone. It’s funny they forgot about talking about government policies and regulations being at the root of what is happening on Wall St. And failing to mention the bullshit quantitive easing fiasco the Fed is pulling. The housing bubble was created by government intervention to allow lobbyists and government to grow. Propping up Freddie and Fanny Mac. They forgot to mention how the Community Reinvestment act attributed to the housing bubble. Forcing banks to give people loans they couldn’t afford.

Everything the Dem Debate covered tonight would crush this nation and turn it into another version of Europe, or worse. Krugman is the last economist I would refer to and give any kudos too. Keynesian economics is what we are dealing with right now. Can’t borrow your way out of debt nor spread your way out of debt. One big reason our economy is in the shitter because it is driven by debt. This QE strategy is only going to make things worse in the long run. Now they are talking about putting negative interest in place. With these low interest rates and taxation, no one has any incentive to invest or save in much of anything. The Federal Reserve needs abolished. It was created to stop things like the depression to happen. They had a big hand in it happening. And the government intervention prolonged the depression.

Hiking the minimum wage is only going to cause loss of jobs. Minimum wage laws, affirmative action, and other governmental intervention, policies, and regulations have decimated our economy and especially minorities. Have any doubt? Go read Sowell’s books as one example.

Obamacare is failing and is what Hillary envisioned during Slick Willy’s administration. I just recently read from a few media outlets four or five Obamacare co-ops have crashed and burned. Even during this debate they mentioned healthcare premiums have shot up over 60%. And they have the balls to say it is a success. Same with student loan debt. As soon as the government took over the student loan business tuition jumped. It was piggy backed on Obamacare. It’s not the banks who control 56% of the GDP as Sander’s falsely claimed it’s the government.

If you want to kill crony capitalism, lobbyist, and the likes. You’ll have to shrink government and cut the opportunities, policies, and regulations that have cause the problems to begin with. It is complete lunacy to make gun makers and dealers liable for gun deaths. That will open up the door for any manufacture open to liability if someone uses their products to kill, same or injure someone else. Whether it be an extension cord to a children’s toy.

Out of some 40,000 plus people caught trying to buy guns who failed background checks only 44 people were prosecuted. There is no gunshot loophole for someone to purchase a weapon. FFL dealers have to do NICS checks regardless. Besides that, no proof exists background checks have thwarted anything. Obama mandarin the CDC do their study backfired on him. They found up to 300,00 and maybe more crimes were thwarted  by people defending themselves with firearms.

The left is totally off the rails with their policies. They have nothing to compare it to. don’t stop to think about the expense of life, liberty, and monetary cost. Nor have any facts to back it up. All they have is a false emotional argument without any imperial evidence what so ever.

Benghazi, Benghazi Committee, Hillary Clinton

The Benghazi Hearings

I’m not sure how many people watched the 11 hours of the fiasco with Hillary Clinton’s testifying in front of the Beghanzi Committee? I’m still trying to figure out if I wasted 11 hours of my life. I didn’t really have anything else better do and figured I’d watch what kind of soap opera it turned into.

It really wasn’t much different than I expected. To be honest, if you watched Gowdy’s opening remarks you could have saved yourself about 10 hours and 45 minutes of watching the shit show that ensued. Pretty much if you’re a Hillary fan she did fantastic. If you’re a a Hillary hater you’d agree she did terrible. In some ways the hearing is probably the best thing that happened to her campaign. I’m sure her fans are going to give her a boost. And it wouldn’t surprise me if her donations went up. Jim Jordan pinned her in a corner with his questions concerning why she said to world leaders and her family it was a terrorist attack and told the American people the attack was a spontaneous attack over a YouTube video. Gowdy hit her pretty good too whether or not her discussion with Blumenthal were unsolicited or not. The gentleman from Georgia had a good point about her giving a blow by blow description of what happened in Tanzania and Cairo and she didn’t give one for Benghazi. Hillary certainly skirted around and changed the subject a lot. She only took responsibility and accountability when it was convenient for her.

If one has half a brain in their head you should be able to figure out the attack in Benghazi was an orchestrated coordinated terrorist attack. I knew it as soon as it broke in the news when the compound was attacked. When Rice, Obama, and Hillary stated it was a protest that escalated over a video I knew it was bullshit. I could see these whack jobs using it for propaganda purposes to gain support but, it didn’t instigate the attack. Don’t you think it to be a little coincidental the attack happened on 9/11? There is just a lot of bullshit that doesn’t add up. Politically it has been turned into an attack on Hillary some what. McCarthy and a couple of others should have kept their mouths shut. The ones who spun it into an attack on Hillary was the left and herself.  Some ways it probably has been politically motivated but, that goes along with the territory. Gowdy has said many times it’s about Benghazi and not about Hillary. What really kicked it off was a memo talking about the video and a terrorist attack and the discrepancies. I think Gowdy is being honest when it comes to it. I think he honestly wants to find out the truth. He will have a hard time because anyone who is involved has the potential to lose their job or seat, and possible prosecution if and when it’s found laws were broken.

There’s no doubt in my mind it was politically motivated with only having 50 some odd days before Obama being reelected. He touted how great a success the policies were working in Libya. What kind of affect would it had on his reelection bid if he talked about the escalation in terrorist attacks in Libya at that time? Most all the other countries like Britain closed their embassies and shagged ass. I think there is more to it than that. Some of the emails connects a guy named Touriq, was the named they used found in an email. He had talked to Ambassador Stevens about dealing with guns and weapons to get them into the rebels in Libya. So, do we have a Fast and Furious or Iran Contra situation going on here? Something else peaked my curiosity when Hillary said Stephens was their for recon. Was he a spook? Isn’t recon supposed to be up to spies and intelligence agencies?

I like how they stalled and just released about 1,400 emails from Stevens just a couple days before the hearing. As I am writing this I just heard on the news Hillary had a boast in donations and had one of the best hours or something after the hearings. One thing among many that disturbed me about what Hillary had said. She alluded to Ambassador Stevens was to blame for his own death. Come on! with 600 requests for security upgrades up until the attack? And anything one would think she would have had some responsibility or accountability she pushed it off on other people or parts of the State department.

During the other hearings and going over the ARB stuff their were contradictions there as well. I’ve watched all the public hearing and the State Department has been stone walling and their representative said he couldn’t comment on a lot stuff because he was  in during that time. they did the old swithcaroo there too. There’s another point I wanted to mention as well. I’ve been follow this Benghazi stuff for quite awhile. The biggest reason the committee hasn’t been able to do anything is because they haven’t  received the information they have asked for and the subpoena’s even haven’t been fulfilled yet. There is as least two or three subpoenas issued over this. A couple of these subpoenas are close to 3 years old now. The State Department and the other departments and agencies are dragging their feet. It took a federal judge to light a fire under their asses. Hillary was screwing the pooch about handing over her server.

There was a subpoena to turn that over and she milked it from everything it was worth until a judge to ld her to fork it over. Then it was wiped out. Her attorneys had thumb drives or whatever with her emails stored at their office. They may have had security clearance to look at the information but, I don’t think they had clearance to store this information.

I’ve seen reports that the IT company and person handling her server didn’t have clearance or were certified and jumped through the hoops to be able to handle classified information. The IG pulling 40 emails and finding 4 that had sensitive and classified information. That is 10% out of a sample people. So if she handed over fifty thousand pages and the sample expose 10% in the sample imagine what 10% of 50,000 maybe more depending on what was considered private and/or work related email. Then the 1,250 emails turned over that were private and weren’t work related.

I just seen an article the IT company had Hillary’s email stored on the cloud as well. I don’t if it’s related to the other server that may have surface, or would this be considered the other server they had? Maybe both a server and copies on the cloud. Reports have surfaced the FBI has been able to recover a lot on information of the wiped server.

It seems pretty apparent to me Hillary has broken a bunch of laws concerning storage, transmitting, and preserving government work related information. From the IG’s report she had classified and sensitive information on her unsecured server. This comes across as much worse than Petraeus ever did, having some classified info in his desk and on his laptop his mistress had access to. Which is pretty chicken she because she was an officer and had some level of security clearance. I think they used Petraeus as a scapegoat and charged him so he would end up being a private citizen and he wouldn’t be able to testify because of the classification change. From what I have come across it played a roll from him being in the position he was in that the way the law is written would make it rough for him to testify because of security reasons. I think they hammered him too because he had damaging information to testify about. So they prosecuted him to shut up as well.

I don’t think Hillary’s explanation of not having information marked classified or not it going to help her much as far as that goes. From what little bit I have been able to find out about that, it doesn’t have to be marked to be considered classified or sensitive. I am sure they have people to screen information and redact what is necessary and reword information so it can be talked about or discussed. I do know there is a close system they use for confidential and classified info. I think Hillary is in a lot trouble no matter what she says. This Blumenthal thing bother me too. The White House wouldn’t let her hire him and then he turns up at the Clinton foundation. Most of the information turning up so far they discussed a lot of things about Benghazi. His emails back and forth to her have been the primary source about Benghazi so far. We’ll have to wait and see how this turns out.I think Blumenthal was being used to go through back channels for whatever reasons. Favors being payed back to him or Hillary?

So it has been an uphill battle for the committee to get any answers or anything to work with. They have been running blind since they haven’t had any document or information they have asked for. How can you perform an investigation if you don’t have or can’t get information because of interference from others to get said information? It would be similar to police trying to do an investigation and can’t get anyone to cooperate. Many of the agencies have been stonewalling this committee. And so have many people, including Hillary Clinton. The next question I have is, how deep does this go? Since Kerry hasn’t been very cooperative, how complicit has he been in the orchestration of what has transpired? Same with the White House and Obama. All this just raises suspicion and mistrust for me. How involved is Cummings? As much as he champions Hillary and protests he comes across guilty of something too. Did he received money for his involvement?

We didn’t really get anything new out of this latest hearing. If anything it has actually helped Hillary. I was disgusted how most of the committee members got on their soap box and voiced opinions propping Hillary up and trying to turn her into a victim. She says she took responsibility, she didn’t really, when pressed she passed it on to someone else. The only things she did take responsibility for was things that may have made her look good.

Did this coming out have anything with the agenda coming out of the White House? If anything, I think Hillary would be a bigger threat to Biden and the administration then the republicans.  I waiting to see the lid blown off of this Benghazi thing. I have a feeling a lot of people may be in trouble if this scandal comes unglued. I do believe it will hit both sides of the aisle. They haven’t figured out yet that probably coming out and telling the truth would be better. Since everyone is in cover you ass mode it just makes everyone involved look guilty whether any wrong doing has been done or not.

I think it’s a good idea Gowdy made the decision to release the transcripts and everything to the public. It should be redacted accordingly if they release something but, that will cause trouble because people will wonder what was redacted and who is being protected.

I do think Hillary broke the law on many levels. Who knows to what extent at this point? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see where the cookie crumbles.
