Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of government. The history of liberty is the history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it.
CAIR, like all such groups, cannot maintain its facade of legitimacy in the harsh light of truth. Shine a light on these Muslim vermin and they cast a terrorist’s shadow. This is simply because CAIR is the political and economic arm of the Islamists’ worldwide war of terror against the peoples of the Civilized World.
In the 10 years that America and the Civilized World have been defending themselves against the Muslims’ jihad humanity has made great strides in both exterminating the vermin and defending people against the vermin’s diseased rage. Sadly, it looks like Al-Qaeda and the other jihadis and terrorists will win after all.
In the aftermath of the Muslims’ terrorist attacks of 9/11 the US government under President Bush Jr. and Vice-President Dick Cheney stepped up and moved strongly and boldly to protect American men, women, and children from further terrorist attacks by America’s Muslim enemies.
One of the most maligned defensive measures was the creation of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), who are responsible for deny Muslim terrorists access to transcontinental guided missiles – i.e., passenger aircraft – via American airports while still adhering the crippling duress of Political Correctness.
Most, if not quite all, travelers know that the TSA is annoying, obstructive, and “less than best prepared” to do their jobs. Despite the fact that ineconomies of scale, budget constraints, and the sad fact that the Liberals won’t allow them to do their jobs, there’s no denying that the TSA officers are not by any measure very good at their jobs. Yet as bad as they are now, they’re about to become even worse.
Not only has the TSA been allowed to unionize, its “workers” have elected the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), a cell of the ineffable AFL-CIO hegemony, as their exclusive representatives because the AFGE promised to eradicate the pay-for-performance system the TSA currently utilizes and replace it with a general schedule based upon seniority instead of merit.
Top priorities include adjusting policies around shift and leave scheduling and moving from the Performance Accountability and Standards System, the agency’s pay-for-performance plan, back to the General Schedule. PASS is “discriminatory and blatantly unfair,” particularly for senior employees, women and minorities, he said.
“The pay system and evaluation of employees to qualify for pay increases is horrible,” he said. “It’s a fraud, and we’re going to lay a lot of sunshine on that through the bargaining process. But bargaining is not the answer. We have to kill that system, and any type of management that cares about employees knows this has to go.”
— John Gage, AFGE National President
It’s a great idea to switch over the organization tasked with keeping the Muslims from crashing airliners into American cities the standard union failure of seniority-based pay scales and promotions. It has, after all, worked so well in the education system and elsewhere.
The real question is whether Gage’s income is being augmented by Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabab, Hamas, and the Taliban or if he supports them due ideology and sharing a common enemy.
It’s not surprising that Gage’s potential deadly agenda set well with the TSA “workers.” The TSA had already had to lower the standards of its Performance and Accountability Standards System in 2008 because only 2% of its employees received the highest rating of “role model,” and only 20& got the next highest mark of “exceeds standards,” these top two rating being the only ones of the four original ratings that qualified for raises under the original system.
So the Muslim terrorists of Al-Qaeda and similar nests of vermin will win after all. Growing laxity and the inability to promote diligence within the TSA means that they will get on board our airlines amd will use them to wreak destruction. I just hope that Americans remember that this will be because of the AFGE and exact a lethal retribution upon their leaders and their leaders’ kith and kin.
So what exactly is the foundation of Obama’s foreign policy? What are Obama’s goals for America’s international relations? Nobody seems to know those answers, not our State Department, not Congress, not the People, not our Enemies, and certainly not our Allies.
With no apparent rhyme or reason to Obama’s statements, occasional half-measures, and string of inactions in response to any of the situations in the Mid-East, Africa, Asia, and Latin America people keep searching for some deeper game that he’s playing and ascribing various and sundry motivations to him.
There’s a far simpler and, I believe, much more likely rationale for Obama’s foreign policy inconsistencies:
Infographic: Obama’s Foreign Policy Goals
There are two rules one should always remember: “The simplest explanation is most likely the correct one” and “Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.”
I firmly believe that Obama already displayed the extent of his foreign policy. He apologied to all and sundry for America’s status as a superpower, vilified the actions of his predecessors, and thought that our enemies would now begin to like, if not America, at least him.
Beyond that, I don’t think that Obama has any foreign policy goals.
As the international situation grows ever more fluid and we in America move towards the 2012 Elections this is something to keep firmly in one’s mind.
Two would-be jihadis, bent on attacking US troops were arrested at JFK airport in Queens, NY late last night (Saturday, June 5, 2010) by the FBI and NYPD.
The vermin were trying to go to Somalia to join up with the Al-Shabab insurgent group which is tied to Osama bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda network. The jihadis, Mohamed Hamoud Alessa of North Bergen, NJ and Carlos Eduardo Almonte of Elmwood Park, NJ have been charged with conspiring to commit an act of international terrorism.
NEWARK — Two New Jersey men intent on killing American troops were arrested Saturday as they boarded flights to link up with a virulent jihadist group in Somalia, authorities said.
The men, both North Jersey residents, were charged with conspiring to commit an act of international terrorism through a group tied to Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda network, according to officials familiar with the details of the arrests.
Mohamed Hamoud Alessa, 20, of North Bergen, and Carlos Eduardo Almonte, 26, of Elmwood Park were apprehended at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens before they could board separate flights to Egypt, where they were to start journeys to Somalia. The men were arrested by teams of state and federal law-enforcement agents who have been investigating the pair since October 2006, according to the officials, who requested anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the operation publicly.
Late Saturday night, the state homeland security agency confirmed a police action at the airport but gave few details.
“Two individuals were arrested at JFK in connection with an ongoing investigation. At this time, we can provide no further details because the investigation is ongoing. The arrests do not relate to an immediate threat,” said Jose Lozano, a spokesman for the state Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness.
U.S. Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Rebekah Carmichael issued a similar statement just after midnight, saying “the arrests do not relate to any known immediate threat to the public or active plot against the United States.”
The arrests were the culmination of Operation Arabian Knight, a joint federal and local investigation, during which an undercover NYPD police official befriended the two traitorous scum and monitored their jihadist activities and travel plans since 2006.
Like the animals, Nidal Hasan and Faisal Shahzadt, Alessa and Almonte are US citizens. The charge of treason should be added to the indictment and the death penalty sought as the sentence.
Sadly but unsurprisingly for America, neither President Obama or his boy, Attorney General Holder have the desire to fully prosecute Muslim “Americans” or their dhimmi allies – or, frankly it seems, most non-White offenders.
It’s good to see that investigations like Operation Arabian Knight are taking place and are, at least in some instances, being successful at eliminating or mitigating the threat posed by Islamic terrorism.
