ISIS AND THE TET OFFENSIVE – “THIS IS FOR ALLAH” – LONDON BRIDGE

BE ALARMED, GREAT ADVICE

Mohammad strikes again. London Bridges falling down.  As typical with these types of ISIS led terrorists attacks, the “stay strong, CONDEMNATIONS COME IN, we will never give up, we will never let them win, our hearts go out to the victims, we will defeat terrorism, Islam is a religion of peace, we must be politically correct, we must go on with our daily lives etc, etc, etc. But truly what good do words do?

The only way to defeat terrorism is with the gun; every last one of them must be killed.  CLICK HERE FOR MORE

Police are today seeking the identities of three Jihadi terrorists who were shot dead by armed police after killing seven people and injuring dozens of others in a horrific van and knife rampage through central London last night.

The men, described as being ‘of Mediterranean origin’, mowed down up to 20 revellers as they careered across London Bridge in an ‘S shape’ at 50mph before they began ‘randomly stabbing’ people in nearby Borough Market.

Today heavily armed officers arrested five people in a raid at a block of flats in Barking, east London, as a major investigation was launched into the third terror attack on British soil in the last three months.

Speaking outside No 10 today, Theresa May confirmed the three incidents are not directly connected but are linked by ‘the single evil ideology of Islamist extremism’. The Prime Minister insisted ‘enough is enough’ as she vowed to introduce tougher punishments and crack down on fanatics.

The three attackers, who were wearing fake suicide vests, shouted ‘this is for Allah’ as they used 12-inch hunting knives to attack revellers at busy bars and restaurants in the market, sending dozens of others fleeing for their lives. One of the suspects was wearing an Arsenal football shirt.

Witnesses said the gang smashed pub windows and reportedly cut the throats of drinkers as civilians barricaded themselves inside and fought off the attackers with pint glasses and chairs. One witness saw a ‘dark-skinned’ man in a red tracksuit ‘calmly’ stab a man three times while another witnessed a victim being stabbed in the face.

Armed police rushed to the scene and shot dead all three suspects within eight minutes of receiving the first emergency call.

Harun Khan, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain, said he was “appalled and angered” by the attack.

“Muslims everywhere are outraged and disgusted at these cowards who once again have destroyed the lives of our fellow Britons.

“That this should happen in this month of Ramadan, when many Muslims were praying and fasting only goes to show that these people respect neither life nor faith.”

Sadiq Khan has condemned the “deliberate and cowardly” London Bridge attack and said the situation is “still unfolding”.

Three Jihadi terrorists have been shot dead by armed police after killing seven people and injuring at least 48 more during a horrific knife rampage in central London last night. This photo appears to show the suspects lying dead on the ground outside Wheatsheaf pub in Borough Market. The man in the centre of the image appears to be wearing an Arsenal football shirt

The bodies of two men, believed to be terrorists, lie in the road in Borough market after shots had been heard

A wounded victim was wheeled out on stretcher by London Bridge as shocked people cried and shouted around them. At least 48 injured people were rushed to five hospitals around London after the terror attack

A traumatised man who helped the wounded victim led away on a stretcher walked away with blood on his shirt. A horrified bystander wrapped in a foil blanket was led away from the police

Police and medics treated injured people and carried them away at the end Thrale Street near London Bridge. Members of the public were told by police to ‘run as fast as they could’ westbound

Dozens of ambulances lined up along the streets to ferry wounded victims to safety

The atrocity on London Bridge was captured in taxi dashcam footage which showed some of the injured being treated on the side of the road asked police officers wielding guns were seen at London Bridge on Sunday morning as the area remains on lockdown

Forensic officers were seen circling blood splatter and bagging pieces of evidence as they scoured London Bridge today5

Several men were seen pinned to the ground with their hands tied behind their backs armed police stormed a block of flats in Barking, east London, in a raid believed to be connected to last night’s terror attack

A map shows how terror attack unfolded. The attackers were shot dead within eight minutes of the first emergency phone call

The scene remains on lock down today as armed police and forensic officers continue to piece together what took place last night. The terror threat remains at severe, meaning another terror attack is considered ‘highly likely’.

Meanwhile:

  • Witness accounts of the terrifying events started to emerge with revellers describing how they fought off knifemen with chairs and glasses after attackers stormed packed bars and restaurants
  • A hero taxi driver revealed how he tried to knock down three men ‘armed with 12in knives’ while another reported seeing victim being stabbed in the face and chest
  • Dashcam footage emerged showing the aftermath of the devastation caused by the van on London Bridge, with bystanders seen tending to victims on the side of the road 
  • Desperate families are begging for information on loved ones feared missing after the attack, including a 16-year-old girl who failed to return home last night 
  • Kindhearted Londoners offered beds, food and cups of tea to survivors as the city came together in the wake of another attack and #PrayForLondon trended on social media 
  • Today heavily armed officers raided a flat in Barking, east London, on Sunday morning as police launched a major investigation into the third terror attack on British soil in as many months
  • The Prime Minister chaired a meeting of the Government’s emergency Cobra committee in Whitehall this morning and insisted in a press conference outside No 10 afterwards: ‘Enough is enough’ 
  • Politicians faced calls to cancel the election next week but Mrs May confirmed it will go ahead as planned 
  • All parties except for Ukip agreed to suspend national election campaigning today but local efforts will continue
  • London Mayor Sadiq Khan condemned the ‘barbaric’ and ‘horrific’ event as ‘deliberate and cowardly’. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the attack was ‘brutal’ and ‘shocking’ in a tweet last night  
  • President Donald Trump tweeted his support for Britain, saying ‘Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U. K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!’
  • Ariana Grande, whose young fans were targeted in the attack at Manchester Arena, confirmed the benefit concert to benefit victims will go ahead tonight as planned with her manager urging people to stand together

Speaking from the steps of No 10 today, Mrs May said Britain faces a ‘new trend in the threat we face’ as she condemned the brutal attacks.

The Premier said there was ‘far too much tolerance’ of extreme views and vowed to stand up for ‘pluralistic British values’ that were ‘superior’ to the fanatics’ ideology. She vowed: ‘We will take on and defeat our enemies.’

Mrs May, who chaired a meeting of the emergency Cobra committee this morning, said the election campaign would resume in full tomorrow and the election on Thursday would go ahead as planned.

The official terror threat level has not been changed and remains at ‘severe’ – meaning an attack is ‘highly likely’.

TERROR TIMELINE

10.08pm Police were called to reports of a vehicle hitting pedestrians on London Bridge

Terrorists got out of car and ran to Borough Market stabbing people

10.16pm Three terrorists shot dead in Borough Market

10.32pm London Bridge station is closed

11pm Police said another incident was happening in Vauxhall as the station was reportedly evacuated

12.25am The incidents at London Bridge and Borough market & were declared as terrorist incidents

12.55am Police said the incident at Vauxhall was a stabbing and not connected to the terrorism

The PM praised the ‘great courage and great speed’ with which police responded to the terror attacks and condemned the use of fake suicide vests to ‘spread panic and fear’.

The terror started last night when three men drove a van in an ‘S shape’ across London Bridge shortly before 10.10pm last night in an attempt to deliberately target pedestrians. There are unconfirmed reports that it is a B&Q and Hertz van.

An on-duty British Transport Police officer who rushed to protect bystanders was among the first victims attacked as the attackers abandoned their vehicle and began stabbing at random.

He suffered ‘serious but not life-threatening injuries’ and his family has been informed.

Some 48 people have been taken to five hospitals across London after the horrific attack. One of the fatalities was at London bridge, it has been reported.

‘The men said “This is for Allah” as they left the van and attacked victims. There were definitely three people sitting at the front of the van,’ witness Eric Seguenzo told BBC News.

He added: ‘I thought the van was travelling on wrong side of the road, as though the brakes had failed. The white van had yellow stripes, veered to the right and people tried to jump out the way.’

Witnesses to the terror attack heard at least 12 gunshots in the area, now believed to have been police firing at the attackers.

Ben and his wife Natalie were in Borough Market near the Southwark Tavern. They told BBC Radio 5 Live that they saw a ‘dark-skinned man in a red tracksuit’ stabbing a man.

AND I screwed up!

GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGES TO THE GOOD – AT LEAST HERE IN THE UNITED STATES

President Trump fulfilled his campaign promise by pulling out of the G-7 Paris accord on climate change. This was the first step of many more to come in making America Great Again. Trump playing the role of Thor brought the hammer down in swift fashion. Lightning and thunder erupted in the mayhem; the climate has changed, negative ions pervaded the atmosphere, global warmers saw their balloon popped. But as Trump said, it is not others that decide America’s fate, it is Americans that do. Things will never be the same again because the global conspiracy called the New World Order is now in chaos.

DRAINING THE SWAMP

Title: Draining the Swamp is Messy. May 14, 2017
 

By Michael Master (author of Save America Now, Rules for Conservatives, The Birth Famine)

 
Our home is in a community of 2,000 homes located on the intercostal waterway in North Carolina. Everything lives here. Alligators. Water moccasins. Rattle snakes. Sea hawks. Egrets. Giant blue heron. Mosquitoes blood sucking mosquitoes. We’ve watched from our back porch as dolphins chased sail boats and motor boats up the intercostal and watched the moon rise over the ocean to cast its glow over the intercostal.
 
When the community decided to drain the swamp in the center of the community, it was a big deal.
 
Draining the swamp was messy. The swamp was about 10 football fields, about 6 feet deep, with lots of creatures living in it. It was a dangerous swamp. Not one that you would walk or swim. You would not dare sit next to it in the dark of a moonless night. If not the snakes, then the mosquitoes would eat you alive.
 
As the water level decreased, the creatures were exposed. As the water level disappeared, all that was left was 3 feet of yucky black mud and the roots to dying cypress trees. The fish, snakes, frogs, rats, and birds were all stranded in the yucky mud.
 
Those creatures of the swamp fought for their lives as the swamp disappeared. The fish flopped around in the black mud looking for some water for life. The frogs croaked incessantly all night while their young pollywogs were stranded lifeless at the top of the black mud. Snakes slithered in every direction in the black mud in search of food. The rats that live in hollows all along the water abandoned their nests while the birds that feed off the swamp creatures also abandoned the area.
 
Finally, the mud dried out. No more snakes. No more rats. No more fish. No more frogs. No more mosquitoes. And no more birds that feed off those creatures of the swamp.
 
That same thing is happening to the political swamp in America. Trump is draining the swamp. His picks for his cabinet are all swamp drainers. Yeah, 3 are from Goldman Sachs. 3 of 23. Practically all of his cabinet have executive experience (military, or government, or private sector) .. and it is the executive branch, now isn’t it?
 
The mud is becoming visible as all the creatures who live in the swamp are fighting for their lives. Government employees at the IRS, EPA, and Education are flapping in the mud like dying fish. The lobbyists are slithering here and there looking for government funds like the snakes in the mud .. especially those who wrote Obamacare. The liberal media cartel is chirping and croaking all the time like frogs trying to reverse the draining. The tax and spend politicians are dying off like the blood sucking mosquitoes. The political appointees of Obama are fleeing DC for other jobs like the birds who lost their meal tickets. And the information leakers like Comey and Lynch are looking for new places to nest like the rats that left the swamp. Soon, all that will remain will be the dying institutions like public education as the dying cypress trees of our society.
 
Everyone who lived off the swamp is praying for rain. Election rain so Democrats might win some elections from Republicans since the Democrats suffered such horrible defeats during the 8 years of Obama. Impeachment rain so the professional politicians can get rid of Trump as the swamp drainer. Low approval rating rain so the media can claim they were correct about Trump. Virtual rain, fake rain, so pundits can claim that Trump is not making any progress even though the results say the opposite.
 
Draining the swamp is messy, muddy. But the mud will soon dry. Democrats just lost special elections in Arkansas and Omaha after sinking millions into them. Democrats might grab an election here or there in places like Georgia where the demographics are changing to black communities, but not without millions and millions of campaign money … and Democrats cannot afford to do that for all the elections in 2018. Democrats must defend 23 Senators in 2018 as compared to 10 for Republicans and Democrats must win 25 seats in the US House from Republicans and then win back 900 state legislative seats and 14 governorship’s. If Georgia is an example, that will cost Democrats hundreds of millions to try.
 
SCOTUS will be rendering its decisions about Trump executive orders just before the 2018 elections … and more than likely, SCOTUS will rule against the Obama appointed judges who live in the lower court swamps. SCOTUS will help Trump.
 
Comey is gone. Lynch is in trouble. Clinton is back in trouble The Clinton Foundation donors are talking. Clapper and Yates both said that there is no evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russians.
 
Schumer is gasping for rain like one of those stranded fish. His Republican swamp buddies like McCain will abandon him as he dies; a rat leaving the swamp even though they shared a Senate residence together. His Wall Street swamp buddies cannot help him. The Washington Post and The New York Times and CNN and NBC are all trying to seed the clouds. But none of it is producing enough rain to help Schumer stop Trump from draining the swamp.
 
Draining the swamp is loud. Listen to all the hysterical liberal media cartel who are trying to make it rain in order to save the swamp where they live. Chanting. Lies. Rain dances. But no real rain is coming. Only fake rain. The swamp will soon be dry. And when it is, then the next task to make America great again can begin.
 
MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA & MAKE IT GREAT AGAIN

MOLOTOV ENVIES THE BOMBERS – ONLY IF HE KNEW

Kabul Afghanistan was the scene of the latest blood bath – 80 killed with another 350 injured. Molotov would be so proud of the bombers, he would buy them a cocktail. With all that is said and done for the likes of us we can’t understand how the perpetrators are able to wreck this type of havoc. Why aren’t they discovered before they go rouge? Beats the hell of us. Our guess is that ISIS pays them well to stay stealth before they go nuclear. Well, better them then us. Talk about Chicago or Baltimore being dangerous? We will take them any day.

GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE – WILL TRUMP POP THE HOT AIR BUBBLE?

Remember Al Gore?  didn’t he invent the internet?; he also put forth the theory on “global warming.” Made a lot of money. His father taught him well. Speaking about his father, the Senior, if memory serves us correctly wasn’t he involved in some kind of double dealing as well? And then there is the al-Jazzera affair, we will get to the that at a later time.

Armand Hammer, who built Occidental Petroleum into the behemoth it is today and who’s been described as “the Godfather of American corporate corruption,” liked to say that he had Gore’s father, Sen. Albert Gore, Sr., “in my back pocket.” When the elder Gore left the Senate in 1970, Hammer gave him a $500,000-a-year job as the chairman of Island Coal Creek Co., an Occidental subsidiary, and a seat on Occidental’s board of directors. By 1992, Gore owned Occidental stock valued at $680,000.

Al, was never one to miss an opportunity that involved a big payoff, actually he invented that too, referring to his hubris on inventing the internet. And while we are speaking about him, we add in a special note – for instance, he was very good at defending illegal contributions to the Slick Willie campaign. That is the period when he was at the top of his game. He said that “there was no legal authority” which controlled illegal campaign contributions to the Clinton campaign.” Got to hand to him for his vigorous fortitude.

That brings us to the G-7 and the global warmer/climate change bigwigs; they go with the wind, put their finger in the air and see which way it is blowing and wham o, they get caught up in the vortex. But don’t count Trump among them. He doesn’t go with the flow.  Seven wealthy democracies ended their summit Saturday in Italy without a unanimous agreement on climate change, as the Trump administration plans to take more time to say whether the U.S. is going to remain in the landmark Paris accord that fights climate change. The other six nations in the Group of Seven agreed to stick with their commitment to implement the 2015 Paris deal that aims to rein in greenhouse gas emissions to slow down global warming.

Fighting words from Alden Meyer, the director of strategy and policy for the Union of Concerned Scientists, an advocacy group in Washington, said the discord over climate change was unusual for G-7 meetings. “There have been differences, to be sure, in some past summits, but not a sharp open split like this,” he said.

Meyer said many U.S. states, cities, and companies are moving forward on climate action while the Trump administration is “waffling” on the Paris Agreement. “President Trump should join these leaders in protecting Americans from the mounting impacts of climate change and reaping the economic benefits of the clean energy revolution, rather than trying to shore up the flagging fortunes of the polluting coal and oil industries,” Meyer said.

Most skeptics attribute global warming—few if any doubt any longer that the warming itself is occurring, given the worldwide rise in surface temperature—to natural cycles, not emissions from power plants, automobiles and other human activity. “The observational evidence…suggests that any warming from (click for global climate aficionados get whipped) the growth of greenhouse gases is likely to be minor, difficult to detect above the natural fluctuations of the climate, and therefore inconsequential,” says atmospheric physicist Fred Singer, an outspoken global warming skeptic and founder of the advocacy-oriented Science and Environmental Policy Project.

(click)Just the facts says Joe Friday:

The facts about climate change

1.     Climate has always changed, and it always will. The assumption that prior to the industrial revolution the Earth had a “stable” climate is simply wrong. The only sensible thing to do about climate change is to prepare for it.

2.    Accurate temperature measurements made from weather balloons and satellites since the late 1950s show no atmospheric warming since 1958.  In contrast, averaged ground-based thermometers record a warming of about 0.40 C over the same time period. Many scientists believe that the thermometer record is biased by the Urban Heat Island effect and other artefacts.

3.    Despite the expenditure of more than US$50 billion dollars looking for it since 1990, no unambiguous anthropogenic (human) signal has been identified in the global temperature pattern.

4.    Without the greenhouse effect, the average surface temperature on Earth would be -180 C rather than the equable +150 C that has nurtured the development of life.

     Carbon dioxide is a minor greenhouse gas, responsible for ~26% (80 C) of the total greenhouse effect (330C), of which in turn at most 25% (~20C) can be attributed to carbon dioxide contributed by human activity. Water vapour, contributing at least 70% of the effect, is by far the most important atmospheric greenhouse gas.

5.    On both annual (1 year) and geological (up to 100,000 year) time scales, changes in atmospheric temperature PRECEDE changes in CO2. Carbon dioxide therefore cannot be the primary forcing agent for temperature increase (though increasing CO2 does cause a diminishingly mild positive temperature feedback).

6.    The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has acted as the main scaremonger for the global warming lobby that led to the Kyoto Protocol. Fatally, the IPCC is a political, not scientific, body.

Hendrik Tennekes, a retired Director of Research at the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute, says that “the IPCC review process is fatally flawed” and that “the IPCC wilfully ignores the paradigm shift created by the foremost meteorologist of the twentieth century, Edward Lorenz“.
7.    The Kyoto Protocol will cost many trillions of dollars and exercises a significant impost those countries that signed it, but will deliver no significant cooling (less than .020 C by 2050, assuming that all commitments are met).

The Russian Academy of Sciences says that Kyoto has no scientific basis; Andre Illarianov, senior advisor to Russian president Putin, calls Kyoto-ism “one of the most agressive, intrusive, destructive ideologies since the collapse of communism and fascism“. If Kyoto was a “first step” then it was in the same wrong direction as the later “Bali roadmap”.

8.    Climate change is a non-linear (chaotic) process, some parts of which are only dimly or not at all understood. No deterministic computer model will ever be able to make an accurate prediction of climate 100 years into the future.
9.    Not surprisingly, therefore, experts in computer modelling agree also that no current (or likely near-future) climate model is able to make accurate predictions of regional climate change.
10.   The biggest untruth about human global warming is the assertion that nearly all scientists agree that it is occurring, and at a dangerous rate.

The reality is that almost every aspect of climate science is the subject of vigorous debate. Further, thousands of qualified scientists worldwide have signed declarations which (i) query the evidence for hypothetical human-caused warming and (ii) support a rational scientific (not emotional) approach to its study within the context of known natural climate change.

LAYING TEN GLOBAL WARMING MYTHS

Myth 1     Average global temperature (AGT) has increased over the last few years.

Fact 1       Within error bounds, AGT has not increased since 1995 and has declined since 2002, despite an increase in atmospheric CO2 of 8% since 1995. 

Myth 2     During the late 20th Century, AGT increased at a dangerously fast rate and reached an unprecedented magnitude.

Facts 2      The late 20th Century AGT rise was at a rate of 1-20 C/century, which lies well within natural rates of climate change for the last 10,000 yr. AGT has been several degrees warmer than today many times in the recent geological past. 

Myth 3     AGT was relatively unchanging in pre-industrial times, has sky-rocketed since 1900, and will increase by several degrees more over the next 100 years (the Mann, Bradley & Hughes “hockey stick” curve and its computer extrapolation).

Facts 3      The Mann et al. curve has been exposed as a statistical contrivance. There is no convincing evidence that past climate was unchanging, nor that 20th century changes in AGT were unusual, nor that dangerous human warming is underway.

Myth 4     Computer models predict that AGT will increase by up to 60 C over the next 100 years.

Facts 4      Deterministic computer models do. Other equally valid (empirical) computer models predict cooling. 

Myth 5     Warming of more than 20 C will have catastrophic effects on ecosystems and mankind alike.

Facts 5      A 20 C change would be well within previous natural bounds. Ecosystems have been adapting to such changes since time immemorial. The result is the process that we call evolution. Mankind can and does adapt to all climate extremes.

Myth 6     Further human addition of CO2 to the atmosphere will cause dangerous warming, and is generally harmful.

Facts 6      No human-caused warming can yet be detected that is distinct from natural system variation and noise. Any additional human-caused warming which occurs will probably amount to less than 10 C. Atmospheric CO2 is a beneficial fertilizer for plants, including especially cereal crops, and also aids efficient evapo-transpiration. 

Myth 7     Changes in solar activity cannot explain recent changes in AGT.

Facts 7      The sun’s output varies in several ways on many time scales (including the 11-, 22 and 80-year solar cycles), with concomitant effects on Earth’s climate. While changes in visible radiation are small, changes in particle flux and magnetic field are known to exercise a strong climatic effect. More than 50% of the 0.80 C rise in AGT observed during the 20th century can be attributed to solar change. 

Myth 8     Unprecedented melting of ice is taking place in both the north and south polar regions.

Facts 8      Both the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are growing in thickness and cooling at their summit. Sea ice around Antarctica attained a record area in 2007. Temperatures in the Arctic region are just now achieving the levels of natural warmth experienced during the early 1940s, and the region was warmer still (sea-ice free) during earlier times.

Myth 9     Human-caused global warming is causing dangerous global sea-level (SL) rise.

Facts 9      SL change differs from time to time and place to place; between 1955 and 1996, for example, SL at Tuvalu fell by 105 mm (2.5 mm/yr). Global average SL is a statistical measure of no value for environmental planning purposes. A global average SL rise of 1-2 mm/yr occurred naturally over the last 150 years, and shows no sign of human-influenced increase. 

Myth 10   The late 20th Century increase in AGT caused an increase in the number of severe storms (cyclones), or in storm intensity.

Facts 10    Meteorological experts are agreed that no increase in storms has occurred beyond that associated with natural variation of the climate system.

Joe FridayJUST IN FROM BREITBART:Breitbart News.svg

Bast: Happy Memorial Day, You Stupid, Arrogant, Liberal Global Warming Alarmist! – Breitbart It’s that time of year again, a holiday where you stand around the grill and patiently (or not) explain the truth to your liberal relatives and friends.

Mentioning an article that ran in the Washington Post in 1922, misreporting evidence of short-term weather variability in the Arctic as evidence of a long-term warming trend, is a good way to poke a stick in the eye of your global warming alarmist friends. A conversation starter!

 The article illustrates a past case where (quoting Snopes, the liberal self-described fact checker) “current warming trends” were misinterpreted as being “indicative of long-term climatic changes rather than relatively short-term weather pattern variability.” Don’t oversell it! It doesn’t prove that people today who refer to warming in the Arctic region as proof of a long-term warming trend are necessarily wrong… only that they might be, that the mistake was made in the past (when man-made emissions could not have been a factor), and so the burden of proof rests on those who say this time is different.

Global warming alarmists often claim the recent Arctic warming is unprecedented or must be due to the human presence. On its face, the 1922 article makes those claims dubious. Closer study reveals they haven’t made the case. For example, a scholarly article released just this month suggests the recent reduction in Arctic ice is most likely just a natural correction to a build-up that occurred from the 1940s to the 1970s. Scientists with the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) produced a lengthy review of the literature in 2014 that essentially found the same thing. But how many people subscribe to Hydrological Sciences Journal or want to read 1,000-page tomes?

Here are some good short references to the climate debate to share with family and friends over the Memorial Day holiday:

A fascinating (and utterly damning) look at the history of the global warming scare campaign is Donna Laframboise’s The Delinquent Teenager who was mistaken for the world’s top climate expert.

A website hosted by meteorologist Anthony Watts, WattsUpWithThat.com, is a wonderful place to go to watch the real science debate taking place over the causes and consequences of climate change. I really don’t think you can visit the site more than two or three times and not come away a “skeptic.”

A DAY TO REMEMBER THOSE WHO HAVE GIVEN THE ULTIMATE

MEMORIAL DAY – WHEN THE TRUE HERO IS REMEMBERED

Americans celebrate Memorial Day, but on this fitting occasion it is important to remember and give tribute to those who have perished in our defense. They gave the ultimate sacrifice, their life, so we can live in liberty.

So this weekend, with the parades coming down Main Street, the bands playing the Battle Hymn, Yankee Doodle Dandy and the Star Spangled Banner, please remember those who are not here to witness the America they defended with valor and courage.

Salute the Flag in their honor.  Thank you.

 

 

THE GANG IS ALL HERE

The MS-13 gang has infiltrated most of American cities. From California to New York. The violent El Salvadorian Mara Salvatrucha gang , better know by its nom de guerre MS-13 and the lesser know 18th Street gang. They continue committing felonies, murdering, extorting, running guns and prostitution rings, peddling drugs and smuggling.

In many cities the police do not dear tread on their turf. But what is more interesting is their sudden recruitment of illegals who are being lodged at an Arizona facility. We should be alarmed. As detailed in the article members of the gang cross the border and are subsequently housed in government holding pens pending their release.

Those doing the recruiting are minors, JUST CHILDREN IN MOST INSTANCES, effectively they are plants.

These Latin American gangs aren’t the typical street hoods of the ’50’s, they are violent criminals. 

In the early 2000s (decade), US authorities investigated MS-13 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Eventually the work led to charges against 26 MS-13 members, including 7 trial convictions in January 2010, 18 guilty pleas, and 11 multi-year prison sentences.This included the alleged first federal death-penalty conviction for an MS-13 member, Alejandro Enrique Ramirez Umaña, aka “Wizard” (age 25).

On July 13, 2003, Brenda Paz, a 17-year-old former MS member turned informant was found stabbed on the banks of the Shenandoah River in Virginia. Paz was killed for informing the FBI about Mara Salvatrucha’s criminal activities. Two of her former friends were later convicted of the murder.

MS-13 – THE GANG THAT SCARES OTHER GANGS

The attorney general’s appearance on Friday comes amid a spate of violence in two communities near the federal courthouse where he spoke in Central Islip. The bodies of 11 people have been found in parks and vacant lots since last September.

Police believe the killings are the work of MS-13.

The gang, which was formed in the 1980s in Los Angeles by Salvadoran immigrants, has expanded to 42 states and is feared for its brutality. Teens say any perceived slight to a gang member can mean death.

Sessions said the nation no longer can tolerate these violent criminals terrorizing young children and entire neighborhoods. He said he would help law enforcement go after these gang members and make sure the criminals are held accountable for their actions.

MOHAMMED STRIKES AGAIN – THE KILLING CONTINUES – UK MANCHESTER 22 DEAD

Another atrocious, hideous and insidious criminal act in Manchester, England resulted in the killing of 22 innocents.  There are few if any ways to ferret out these lone wolf suicide bombers.  So the killings will continue until the Muslim world and their religion of peace shows some backbone. What they need to do is very simple, bring in their own death squad (such as Dirty Duterte in the Philippines) and kill them before they sow anymore devastation. That is  the only way to prevent anymore havoc.

The Jihadists hides behind every door, not culturally assimilated because of the hate they harbor inside; when taunted, like a road rage driver, they can explode and do evil. And this is the case with the Manchester terrorists. Wreaking a venue with bloodshed is their calling card; spreading fear is their coin of the realm. Now society has to be vigilant of all Muslims, neighbors, co-workers and those who appear to be simulated.  Being nice and patronizing has its limits, what matter is ideology that remains dormant until the call of Jihad becomes so great that it cannot be suppressed.

It is up to the Muslim world to take responsibility for these lone wolf terrorists. They are insiders and know how to deal with them. If not, the anti-Muslim mindset of those affected will prevail for centuries to come.
