London Beheader's Imam Says He was Courageous !


''Scholars of Islam'' like Prime Minister David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson insisted that the gruesome murder of a British soldier by two Muslims shouting ''Allah Akbar'' and quoting the Koran had nothing to do with Islam.  I'm sure the majority of their citizens would beg to disagree or better yet tell them to ''rack-off''! However, this pile of camel dung, Imam Bakri Muhammad, who influenced Mujaheed Adebowale, the lead ''beheader'', disagrees saying, ''Under Islam this can be justified. I saw the film and we could see that he was being very courageous,'' adding ''To people around here (in the Middle East) he is a hero for what he has done.''  That's right, there's nothing more courageous and heroic than two men running down one man in a car and then cutting him up, tossing his body parts on the road while screaming praises to Allah.

What are Imam Bakri Muhammad's qualifications as an Islamic scholar? Aside from being a former member of that notoriously moderate Islamist organization; the Muslim Brotherhood? It seems from the age of five he was brainwashed in the al-Kutaab Islamic boarding schools (a primary school teaching children nothing about the real world) where he learned how to recite the Quran by heart and the sayings of the Prophet and Fiqh (Islamic Religious Philosophy). Later joining the Shari'ah Institute in Damascus University then studied more Fiqh to get an MA from Uzaic University, Lebanon. He moved to Saudi Arabia, where he joined the Madrassah Al-Saltiyyah studying and getting a diploma in Jami' Al-Qur'an. Then, unfortunately he was allowed to enter Great Britain.

Bakri leading a march in 2012 with Adebowale behind him.

Offhand, I would say Bakri's qualifications as a scholar of Islam top those of Boris Johnson and David Cameron. And he has some scholastic views on killing infidels derived from one of those many degrees in how to kill infidels the Islamic way. It was bad enough when he was secretly recorded in a series of rants in which he calls on Muslims to behead their enemies and kidnap Westerners. Investigators further discovered that Bakri encouraged a kidnapping terrorist act just months before he was banned from the UK last year. On another occasion, he specifically mentioned planning to capture a British Muslim serving in the Army to punish him.

Bakri, who has frequently suggested that ''the enemy'' are Westerners, particularly Americans and the British, says: ''When you meet the enemy, slice their own necks. And when you make the blood spill all over, and the enemy becomes so tired, now start to take them prisoners. Verily they remind the sunnah (actions/sayings of Mohammad) of removing the head of the enemy. They remind the sunnah of slaughtering the enemy. They remind the sunnah of how to strike the neck of the enemy. Use the sword and remove the head of the enemy.'' So a well indoctrinated Adebowale and his friend couldn't get hold of a sword so they used a meat cleaver instead doing Bakri proud. His comment to a reporter about such a despicable act was, ''We don't make a distinction between civilians and non-civilians, innocents and non-innocents. Only between Muslims and unbelievers. And the life of an unbeliever has no value. It has no sanctity.'' Nothing to do with Islam...right?

The consequences of the sick and barbaric murder of Lee Rigby has fueled racial hatred. Islamophobic hate crimes are running at more than 10 times their usual rate, with more than 140 reported to a government hotline in the 48 hours after the Woolwich killing. Since then more than nine attacks on mosques, assaults, racial abuse and anti-Muslim graffiti. An improvised petrol bomb was thrown at a mosque in Milton Keynes during Friday prayers, while more attacks have also been reported in Gillingham, Braintree, Bolton and Cambridge. Members of the English Defence League shouted out that ''the killing shows Britain is at war with Islamic extremism and staged a march in Newcastle. The British National Party leader, Nick Griffin (photo below) was on YouTube today saying ''the time has come for the British people to take their country back from the flood of immigrants that don't have any pride or allegiance in British citizenship or in our culture." 

Mr Griffin went on to say, ''Britain now has sharia banking, a sharia law tribunal, halal butchers and fishmongers, sharia school meals and even Islamic patrols in some London neighbourhoods there are gangs of Muslim youths who survey the streets to ensure that no-one is playing load music, men aren't walking home with alcohol from the local liquor store, and women are ''appropriately'' covered. All these rules are aimed at non-Muslims, of course. We've bent over backward to accommodate these people and we got back sweet F.A. While left wing detractors claim that the reason for Muslim terrorism in our country is due to poverty and 'exclusion', it should be noted that the two men who attempted to crash a Jeep loaded with explosives into Glasgow airport in 2007 were educated and well financed. Bilal Abdulla was a physician and his friend Kafeel Ahmed was an engineering student. We must tell our weak and spineless leaders....enough is enough!"

The Way I See It.....this has been a wakeup call for all British people. They are finally seeing, what I warned my country about in a previous posting ''Stealth Jihad Comes to Australia'' (May 18, 2011), and Gert Wilders of The Netherlands has been saying. I am sure the National British Party membership will increase with this ''re-awakening'' and once again become a political force for positive change. There is no question that Britain is undergoing a cultural shift, and for the worse. Perhaps the most bewildering aspect of this is the fact that the UK takes in 250,000 immigrants and refugees annually; about the same as Canada. Yet Britain is barely one-third the size of the Province of Alberta with a population of 65.2 million people and growing! It's crazy!

But Islamism is not Islam. Islamism is the politicisation of Islam, the desire to impose a version of this ancient desert faith over modern society. To achieve this, Islamism uses political grievances and a big dash of victimology, to alienate and then provide an alternative sense of belonging to vulnerable young Muslims. Preying on the unrest of disaffected young men is the bedrock of Islamism. Like all bigoted ideologies, it plays on the identity politics game, creating a ''them and us'', in order to provide a home for the ''us'' against the alien ''other'' and control the community by acting as the sole ''representitive'' of Muslims. Spreading this sense of exclusive Muslim victimhood is crucial to the radicalisation process.

NOTE:  In my previous posting, ''The Global Recanting of Multiculturalism'' (April 19, 2011) I quoted David Cameron declaring in an impassioned speech on the perils of political correctness and multiculturalism in England. I find it strange that he is tight-lipped at this point in time when his firm leadership to voice his people's fears and desire to reform their immigration policy is sorely needed.

Benefits of Coconut Oil for Pregnant Mothers !


Coconut Oil contains Lauric acid, a powerful anti-microbial fatty acid that protects the immune system of the fetus and newborn. Pregnant and nursing mothers should eat coconut oil to increase the quality of the womb environment and breast milk.

There has been a lot of research lately discussing how the environment of the womb can affect the long term health of the baby with respect to autism, allergies, asthma, food sensitivities and other chronic conditions. In my past blogs I have talked about the health benefits of coconut oil but not specifically its protective properties for pregnant and nursing mothers.

A healthy diet contains mixtures of saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. The unique composition of human breast milk contains about 45 to 50% saturated fat, about 35% unsaturated and 15-20% polyunsaturated fat. Lauric acid and Capric acid comprise about 20% of total saturated fatty acids found in breast milk. Lauric acid and Capric acid have potent antiviral, antibacterial and parasiticidal (kills parasites) properties that support the immune system. These fatty acids offer the nursing infant protection from illnesses, viruses such as herpes and HIV, protozoa such as giardia lamblia, and bacteria such as chlamydia and heliocobater.

Yes...Coconut oil is high in saturated fat (but not cholesterol since it is from a plant) containing about 50% Lauric acid. Other components of coconut oil include the aforementioned Capric acid, caprylic acid, tocopherols and tocotrienols (vitamin E lipids that act as potent anti-oxidants that can help maintain healthy cell structure and function). A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown that lactating mothers who eat coconut oil and other coconut products, have significantly increased levels of Lauric acid and Capric acid in their breast milk, creating milk rich in health promoting nutrients. Coconut oil is easy for an infant's immature digestive system to absorb and utilize. It also provides energy in the form of medium chain fatty acids to help the baby grow and develop properly.

According to the research, when a lactating woman adds foods rich in Lauric acid to her diet, the amount of Lauric acid available in her breast milk increases substantially to levels three times the original level and nearly double the amount of Capric acid. A single meal of coconut oil can significantly affect the breast milk fatty acid compositions for 1 to 3 days with the maximum increase occurring during the first 10 hours. This data supports the hypothesis that diet directly affects the quality of human milk and possibly the womb environment.

Pregnant females store fat to assure successful lactation. Any Lauric acid and Capric acid in the diet becomes part of the adipose tissue stores. The milk fat of a lactating mother is made up of these stores as well as her current diet. Therefore, it is so important for pregnant and nursing women to eat a healthy diet --- one based on whole foods; vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, lean protein and raw coconut oil by tablespoon and for cooking.

The Way I See It....a coconut is not just oil. Coconut water is pure health, especially for fitness buffs and athletes and better than those ghastly modern coloured drinks. Also, since coconut oil does not have essential fatty acids (EFAs) so using other sources of fat would be a prudent rule. I must stress that I am referring to virgin coconut oil as compared to hydrogenated coconut oil -- which incidently was how coconut oil came to earn its bad reputation in the first place because the research was done on the inferior hydrogenated (processed) oil.

EUROPE: Mugged By Multiculturalism !



Mass immigration from poor, unkempt Muslim nations seems much harder than was sold to the citizens of Sweden. Stockholm braced for an eighth night of riots as violent unrest that began over a week ago in the northern suburbs of the Swedish capital continued to spread to other corners of the city. The unrest began on Sunday in the rundown, immigrant ''ghetto'' suburb of Husby when police shot a man brandishing a knife at them. About 80% of the population is either first or second generation immigrants, mostly from Muslim countries like Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and godforsaken Somalia. Up to 40 cars, a police station and a restaurant in the southern suburb of Skogas were set ablaze. Fire crews were pelted with stones -- mainly young men with their ugly faces covered -- as they attempted to douse the flames. Around 300 cars in and around the suburbs (see map) have been set on fire so far.

Is this what Sweden envisaged with mass Muslim immigration.  A more divided society, with ungrateful ethics and religious-infused riots?  More than few commentators and far-left politicians tried to link the violence to reductions in the size and scope of Sweden's welfare state -- one of the world's most expensive. ''Their welfare cheques weren't large enough!'' Some media reports alleged that the violence was a response to ''police brutality'' or ''structural racism''. Other, more clear-headed Swedes, lashed out at the immigrants ''who sit on their asses everyday, out of work watching satellite TV from their respective countries, not learning the language and thereby keeping their distance by living in ghettos, refusing to integrate and enjoying the largess of Swedish welfare offerings, from free schools, hospitals and  financial supports. What a Life!''

The Swedish Democratic Party, which seeks to implement broad restrictions on further immigration and were largely ostracized and demonized by state-funded media for their stance, made their first entry into Parliament last year. With increasing public support, they now have become the third largest political party....based on recent polls. With a general election set for next year, analysts and pollsters expect this party to see major gains with this current economic and social climate. Much of the native Swedish population is proud of the openness and tolerance in accepting foreigners, but as immigration continues unabated, significant segments of society are having second thoughts, saying the riots illustrated the ''failure of multiculturalism'' and the problems with allowing too many foreigners in without a real plan to make them assimilate.

This is not the first time this Scandinavian country has seen riots among immigrants. In 2010, up to 100 youths threw bricks, set fires and attacked the local police station in the immigrant-heavy suburb of Rinkeby for two nights. And in 2008, hundreds of youths rioted against police in the southern Swedish town of Malmoe (where the recent EuroVision contest was held), sparked by the closure of an Islamic cultural centre in the suburb of Rosengaard that housed a mosque. Malmoe has a sizable Muslim ghetto there and is sadly a no-go-zone for police, firemen and Swedes in general.

When mass Muslim immigration requires such an effort from the host country to make work, with such a high price for failure...is it really worth it?  The Integration Minister Erik Ullenhag said he was looking into reforms targeting such areas that would create a ''much more individualized process'' when it came to integrating immigrants. Note how the onus falls on the Swedes to make immigrants adapt, and not on the rioters. Thankfully some of the immigrants in Husby are smarter than the socialist Integration Minister. Marianne Farede (photo) agreed that high youth unemployment was part of the problem, but she put more blame on parents rather than a lack of support programmes from the Swedish state. ''It's how they've been raised. Everything comes back to their parents,'' she explained. ''It's not the state's fault. You have to take control of your life. If I lived in my homeland, I wouldn't have it as good as I do now. That's something I really appreciate,'' the Lebanon-born Farede stated. ''There aren't enough who do appreciate what they have here. They want even more...''

The Way I See It....the parents are ultimately responsible. They need to set boundaries. They need to have more of an interest and check on their lives. By failing to integrate into Swedish society, , these parents make it harder for their children to do so. Sitting at home, watching their foreign language TV stations, with no learnt Swedish language and living off benefits...they are stuck and so are their children. It's the individual child and their parents that must take responsibility for moving forward. But many don't; they only think about money and how to get benefits this month and next month. That grubby, greedy lifestyle affects their children There has to be a limit. Sweden has given them too much, frankly. Now Sweden has to swallow something it cannot digest.

It's time for late-to-the-party Sweden to seriously talk to the countries of England, Germany, France, Italy, Greece and the most advanced in anti-multicultural policies, Gert Wilders in The Netherlands for that all important reformation of turning back the Jihad-by-Stealth and scrapping the United Nation's antiquated UNESCO's International Migration and Multicultural Policies passed in 1995.

UPDATE:  When a government fails to defend its people from the consequences of its foolish mass migration programs, the backlash can be as ugly as it is utterly predictable. It's been revealed, now that the rioting has subsided, that on the fifth day Swedes had grown tired of the police's inability to put an end to the unrest took to the streets to defend their neighborhoods. The vigilantes were described as a motley crew of homeowners, neo-Nazi activists and concerned citizens. In the suburb of Tumba the police actually rounded up and dispersed a group of vigilantes trying to fend off rioters. The decision to round up vigilantes, while doing as little as possible to stop rioters, met with a wave of protests in various social media and on the Internet.

The Sounds of Silence Instead of Honesty !


As Stockholm burns, a soldier is hacked to death in London and a soldier is knifed in France, Andrew Bolt, my favourite journalist, recalls the foolish words of Australia's Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus; a supplicant to the God-of-Multiculturalism. Dreyfus represents the federal seat which takes in much of Greater Dandenong, more than half of whose population comes from overseas. Here is the sunny picture he painted of Dandenong two months ago: ''Our community is a wonderful example to others of a modern, diverse and harmonious society.''

Mind you, it is easy to rhapsodise about mass immigration (even though this country is getting swamped with 3000 illegal aliens a month), especially from poor and Muslim lands, when you live not in your ''fabulously'' diverse electorate but 20 km away, in the very affluent and very white suburb of Malvern. That may explain why this ''harmonious society'' of ''150 different nationalities'' turns out to be not quite the ''wonderful example'' Dreyfus claims.

Last month, The Age newspaper reported: ''Around Dandenong, young Sudanese men stalk parks in gangs and rob anyone who walks through. About 300 others brawled so viciously at a 21st birthday party last year that police had to use capsicum spray. There is certainly a public fear of violence. One caller tells police she has seen about 50 Sudanese men heading towards a party full of Pacific Islanders. The words ''Sudanese'', ''Samoan'' and ''Pacific Islander'' occur surprisingly often in that article and in police statistics for any dupe who believed Dreyfus.

Same with this The Age news report (an uncharacteristically frank newspaper) stating, ''The ethnically diverse city has crime rates almost 40% higher than the state average...Pacific Islander and Sudanese community leaders were informed by Victoria Police last year that their populations were over-represented in crime statistics.'' That's not strange however. A similar over-representation of some immigrant groups, like the Lebanese, is seen in New South Wales  prison statistics. No...what's remarkable is that our idiot Attorney-General can stare at ethnic strife and see only a choir singing ''Kumbaya''.

How often our lamestream media succumbs to such willful see-nothing, say-nothing when confronted with the high price of modern mass immigration. The stark Truth gets wrapped in the  cotton wool of political correctness. Take the startling example of last week from our Public Service television station, SBS, after the beheading of a British soldier in a London street by two Muslims of Nigerian background. (Note: one of the killers was shown on YouTube shouting: ''There are many, many ayah throughout the Koran that we must fight them as they fight us, an eye for an eye.'' )  Yet in a radio report seven minutes long, SBS host Hannah Sinclair and London journalist Adam Mcllrick wouldn't mention ''Muslim, ''Islam'', or ''Koran''. The dickhead Mcllrick, who'd seen the video, even claimed to have ''no indication'' what motivated the murder. This selective deafness is typical of our public broadcasters.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) our main non-commercial station also lost its hearing when U.S. army psychiatrist, Nidal Hasan, a known Muslim hothead, shot dead 13 soldiers at Fort Hood while shouting ''God is great !"  Silence. Same thing after last month's Boston bombings. ABC's AMs first report didn't once mention ''Muslim'', although it was already known the two Chechen terrorists were Muslim, and the elder one had videos of Islamist terrorists on his Facebook site. True, reporting the faith of ethnicity of the violent perpetrators risks making victims of peaceful members of those groups. But the refusal to be honest means we also risk not understanding what;s happening and fixing what's broken.

The Way I See It....o know the unvarnished truth helps us to understand what we will face, too. Gert Wilders, in his visit to our country a few months ago told us how his country, the Netherlanders, has had a gutful of benevolent multiculturalism (you know, lots of welfare) and is putting a stop to Muslim immigration and he warns us to take heed. Immigration today too often looks like colonisation. Done badly, the host country is left with unassimilated minorities colonising poor suburbs and turning  them into ghettos.

Plugged into satellite TV, these parasites maintain their culture and language and, fortified by welfare, keep their distance. Add militant Islam, and some suburbs can become the fault line of a culture war, particularly when young men return from fighting in jihadist groups, as hundreds of Australians are now doing in Syria. I am certainly not saying that this is yet a serious problem here in Australia, but then again, what else are Dreyfus, the ABC, and SBS not telling us?

Worries That Secular Tunisia's Becoming New al-Qaida Base !


The hunt for al-Qaida-linked militants in a mountainous region near Tunisia's borders with Algeria in recent weeks has raised alarm that the birthplace of the Arab Spring has become the latest battleground for violent jihadis. With neighboring Algeria and Libya still full of weapons and violent movements of their own, Tunisia is struggling to prevent the growth or armed groups while making its own tentative transition to democracy. The news out of Tunisia in the past week has been depressingly familiar for the Middle East: roadside bombs badly wounding soldiers and police as they comb a mountainous region for the militants. What's unusual is that the setting is this largely secularized middle class nation of 10 million.

For now the numbers are small compared to those found in Algeria, Libya or norther Mali. But recent fighting in the Sahel -- the arid region just south of the Sahara Desert -- has sent these jihadi scum looking for new havens, raising fears that Tunisia is in their sights. ''We have discovered a terrorist plan targeting Tunisians and the state,'' the Interior Ministry spokesman, Mohammed Ali Aroui, said without giving further details. He estimated that there were some 20 militants hiding in the rugged area near the southern city of Kasserine. He said that another dozen were at large in the north around the town of al-Kef.

The overthrow of the dictatorship of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in January 2011, kicked off the pro-democracy uprisings of the Arab Spring around the region. The once-banned moderate Islamist party, Ennahda, went on to dominate parliamentary elections. Shortly there after, they foolishly flung open the prisons, letting out many militants with connections to violent groups. Ennahda is often accused of tolerating these more radicalized militants or not taking them seriously enough. Ben Ali's secular-minded dictatorship long bred extremist sentiments but most radicals sought jihad outside the country's borders. Recently, it appears that some Tunisian radicals have decided to come home to fight. ''The terrorists are looking to establish a logistical base to conduct their operations,'' announced Brig. Gen. Mokhtar Ben Nasr last week.  (photo left)

Unfortunately, since the fall of Ben Ali, there has been a rise not just in moderate Islamic groups but also hardline ultraorthiodox Muslims known as the Salafis. These scum have railed against what they call the secular elements of a country long known for its progressive (read non-medieval) attitudes, especially concerning women's rights. This was sharply brought into focus when Amina Tyler posed half-naked on Facebook in March with the words ''My body belongs to me''  on her chest causing a Salafi preacher to call for her to be stoned. Critics of the government say these Salafi groups, including those advocating violence, have been allowed to run rampant. Last September, several of these groups converged on the U.S. Embassy, burning cars and destroying a nearby American school. In February, a leftist politician was assassinated and the men eventually arrested were linked to the Ansar al-Sharia Salafi group.

The attacks sent the country's delicate political transition into turmoil, prompting then-Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali to resign in February and raising fears that the Ennahda-led government was failing not only at the economy but in security as well. The terrorist threat has moved to a higher level,'' Jebali said in a recent interview. He added that the country was in the delicate process of writing a new constitution and holding elections for a new legislature and president by the end of the year. The process has been riven by angry disputes between Ennahda and the opposition parties, partly over Ennahda's alleged laxity towards the damn Salafis. Just five days ago the relations between Ennahda and the Salafist activists, particularly the Ansar al-Sharia group reached breaking point, sparking deadly clashes in two Tunisian cities.  (above right)

The violence erupted after the government banned an annual preaching rally in the central city of Kairouan, a historic centre of Islamic learning, considered by many Muslims to be the fourth holiest city after Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem. And it showed its determination by deploying a mass force of 10,000 security personnel on May 19 to prevent the public meeting. Also a young man was killed in the capital, Tunis. Unfortunately, the Salafist movement seems to be gaining support among young people who are disenchanted with Ennahda's failure to anchor Islamic Sharia Law in the constitution, and are alienated by unemployment and lack of economic opportunity. There is likely to be more confrontation in the short to medium term. This crackdown on radical Islamists will test Tunisia's resolve and future stability for its 11 million citizens.

The Way I See It.....seems like Ennahda have finally put their foot down, but that shouldn't be applauded because over the past years they have tolerated the growth of Salafism and done nothing about it. Part of the problem is the hundreds of mosques under the control of radical preachers that are filling disaffected youth with the ideas of jihad, whether at home or abroad. A third of the 32 attackers against an Algerian gas facility in January were Tunisian and hundreds are fighting in Syria. ''This is the message from Tunisia for the entire region: Tunisia proved there is a chance for democracy in the Arab world,'' says Rafik Abdessalem, Ennahda's foreign policy chief. ''The second message is that democracy is not possible without order and confronting violent elements and groups.''

The U.S. and France have shown real concern and are recommending a national conference of all political parties to forge a common anti-terrorism strategy. At the moment, if we compare the situation in Tunisia to the rest of the region, particularly Libya and Algeria, it is pretty much under control with state and foreign interests were not under any significant threat. The real concern is how demoralized security forces have been since the fall of Ben Ali, sapping their ability to maintain border security as well as in the past.  Brig Gen Ben Nasr has been trying to counter the problem within the ranks with increasing resources and moral. We in the West must wish him and Tunisia the best of luck knowing that the only way to beat Islamic militants is to let law-abiding Islamists do it.

The Real Reason Behind Benghazigate !


Thanks to intrepid investigative reporting from reporters at Fox News, WND.com, and RadicalIslam.org, and information developed by congressional investigators, the mystery is beginning to unravel with regard to what happened that night and the reason for the subsequent, clumsy cover-up now known as Benghazigate.  There' a lot more to the tragic saga than just the murdering of four Americans in a godless part of Libya. The evidence  suggests,that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East. Starting in March 2011, when American diplomat J. Christopher Stevens was designated the liaison to the ''opposition'' in Libya, the Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, leader of the al Qaeda franchise know as the Libyan Fighting Group.

Once Gadhafi was overthrown, Stevens was appointed ambassador to the new Libya run by Belhadj and his friends. Not surprisingly, one of the most important priorities for someone in that position would be to try to find and secure the immense amount of armaments that had been cached by the dictator around the country and looted during and after the revolution. One of the places most awash with such weapons in the most dangerous hands is Benghazi. Stevens was there -- on that particular risky day, with no security to speak of and despite his many requests for more security for him and his subordinates. He was 600 miles from his safe Embassy in Tripoli while doing clandestine work in the ''Wild West'' city of Benghazi.

What was he doing there?  The Truth is he was on a mission to send arms recovered from the former regime's stocks to the ''opposition'' in Syria. As in Libya, the U.S. government was aiding insurgents that included al Qaeda and other Shariah-supremacist groups. Fox News has chronicled how the Al Entisar, a Libyan-flagged vessel carrying 400 tons of cargo, docked on September 6th in the Turkish port of Iskenderun. It reportedly supplied both humanitarian assistance and arms, apparently destined for Islamists, again including al Qaeda elements, in Syria. What cries out for further investigation and debate in the remaining days of Obama's presidential election is whether this shipment was part of a larger covert Obama effort to transfer weapons secretly to America's enemies that could make both the Iran-Contra scandal, to say nothing of Operation Fast and Furious, pale by comparison. 

Ambassador Steven's presence at the ''mission'', inaccurately called a ''consulate'' by the government until recently, actually served as a meeting place to coordinate aid for the rebel-led insurgency in Syria. Among the tasks performed inside the building was collaborating with Turkish, Saudi and Qatari government representatives on the recruitment of fighters -- including jihadists -- to target Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria. The distinction may help explain why there was no major security presence at what has been described as a ''shabby, nondescript building'' and was ''routinely used by Stevens and others to coordinate the gathering of arms and fighters.''

Investigators know that Stevens' last official act, about an hour before the murderous attack began was to conclude a meeting with an unidentified ''Turkish diplomat.'' Presumably, the conversation involved additional arm shipments to al Qaeda and its allies in Syria. Turkey has been leading the insurgency against Assad's regime. Stevens also served as a key contact with the Saudis to coordinate the recruitment, by Saudi Arabia, of Islamic fighters from North African states. It was revealed that there were two large warehouse-type buildings associated with the mission whose purpose has yet to be disclosed. As their contents were raided in the course of the attack, we may never know for sure what they housed -- and were known by the local jihadis to house -- arms, perhaps administrated by the two Navy SEALS killed along with Stevens.

The Way I See It.....most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not to the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster. In short, it seems President Obama has been engaged in gun-running on a massive scale. The devious, non-transparent State Department's Hillary Clinton, with Obama's White House cronies approval has in effect been able to equip America's enemies to wages jihad not only against regimes it once claimed were America's friends, but inevitably against America and its allies as well. That would explain his administration's desperate bid to mislead the voters and now that he is president and in the full glare of Congress he, Eric Holder and Hilliary still claim ignorance and will not reveal the full story. Impeachment sounds too easy....perhaps calling it Treason would fit the continuing under handed machinations from this corrupt Chicago-style government.

Obama Policy: Smear Any-And-All Whistleblowers !


It's On !  As the White grapples with a growing backlash over its Libya lies and lapses, President Obama's apologists.  This, after coming hot on the heels of further relations from whistleblowers last week on the Internal Revenue Service, back by Obama, singling out rich Romney campaign donors and Tea Party members by mainly subjecting them to some heavy-duty auditing procedures. The leaks keep coming. The Obama administration, which has a chilling zeal for investigating leaks and prosecuting leakers, has failed to offer a credible justification for secretly combing through the phone records or reporters and editors at The Associated Press in what looks like a fishing expedition for sources and an effort to frighten off whistleblowers.

Last Friday's revelation that Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department officials admitted they had been going through the A.P.'s records for months. The dragnet covered work, home and cellphone records used by almost 100 people at one of the oldest and most reputable news organizations. James Cole, a deputy attorney general, offered no further explanation this week, saying only ''that it was a part of a criminal investigation involving highly classified material.'' This action against The A.P., as the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press outlined in a letter to Mr Holder, ''calls into question the very integrity of the administration's policy toward the press.''

Get ready.....bring out the tar buckets! Operation SMEAR THE WHISTLEBLOWERS is coming. The State Department press office already has accused Victoria Toensing, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers of ''lying'' about administration pressure on her clients. Left-wing operatives funded by scumbag billionaire George Soros have taken to Twitter to mock reports of fear and intimidation among the new witnesses. White House patsy, press secretary Jay Carney continues to sing, ''Long, long ago'' and deny all wrongdoing. And one anonymous State Department official told Fox News reporter James Rosen that Hicks and Thompson have ''axes to grind.''

Gee, who wouldn't have an ''axe to grind'' if your bosses lied to you, blocked you from saving your co-workers and friends, and lied shamelessly and repeatedly to the American people about the reasons for their deaths. It's this corrupt and vengeful White House that wields the sharpest axes and biggest grindstones. The casualty count in Obama's war on whistleblowers is double-digit. For example, the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) insiders who testified before Congress about Obama's Fast and Furious gun-running nightmare faced systemic retaliation and harassment -- both from government supervisors who openly declared with hunts against them and from the liberal (Obama ass-kisser) media.

Maverick journalist Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News faced White House retaliation of her own over her Fast and Furious investigation. Department of Justice (DOJ) spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler ''was just yelling at me,'' and White House spokesman Eric Schultz ''literally screamed at me and cussed me,'' she told radio host Laura Ingraham in 2011. Also, the former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams, who blew the whistle on Eric Holder's rule of law-perverting, race-baiting reign, was basely smeared as a ''liar'' and perjurer by DOJ proxy and Washington Post tool E.J. Dionne -- who ignored Adams' stellar career record at DOJ and unassailable sworn testimony. Shades of Richard Nixon and talk of impeachment!

Then there is Gerald Walpin, former AmeriCorps inspector general, who was pushed out of his job by the Obamas after exposing fraud and corruption perpetrated by Democratic mayor of Sacramento and Obama friend Kevin Johnson. The White House baselessly questioned the veteran watchdog's mental health and never apologized for slandering him. Even the Pleasanton Weekly (California) was bullied by the White House press shop over a benign article that irked the administration because it made Michelle Obama look snooty (which she is). The San Francisco Chronicle was punished by the White House because a media pool reporter used a cellphone to record a video of protesters at an Obama Bay Area fundraiser.

''What difference.......does it make?"
The Way I See It.....the arrogance of the Obama administration has been caught out big time. In the past week with the Benghazi cover-up being the main event and the IRS harassment of conservative NGOs and the Justice Department combing through The A.P.s records to frighten off whistleblowers this government's talk of transparency is a joke. You could see it in January when Hillary Clinton, as being grilled by Senator Ron Johnson at the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee hearing. He pressed her over and over on why didn't anyone own up to the fact it was a terrorist attack and not due to a riot over a YouTube video. She said angrily, ''Was it because of a protest or about a bunch of guys out for a walk one night and decide they want to kill some Americans......what difference at this point does it make?

I'd like to make Hillary say that if front of the bereaved familes and see if she gets hugged back. If you thought Chicago-on-the-Potomac was dirty with one scheme after another, you ain't seen nothing yet. No stone will be left unturned in the effort to slime, sully and squelch the Benghazi truth-tellers and any others who have exposed the government's underbelly. Mark my words: This is how Obama's thugs roll.

Obama's Chicago-on-the Potomac Reaps the Whirlwind !


This past week, even the New Yorker concedes after the election what no media organisation of the Left would concede before it -- the White House didn't tell the truth about the Benghazi attack:
''It's a cliche of course, but it really is true: in Washington, every scandal has a crime and a cover up. The ongoing debate about the attack on the U.S. facility in Benghazi where four Americans were killed, and the Obama Administration's response to it, is no exception. For a long time, it seemed like the idea of a cover up was just a Republican obsession. But now there is something to it.''   I warned about this happening in three separate postings. An Act of War....Not a Movie Protest !  (September 16, 2012), Welcome to Benghazi Gate !  (October 3rd ), Obama Throws Hillary Under the Benghazi Bus !  (October 15th) yet the lamestream media ignored my warnings and was more interested in getting Obama elected at all costs; meaning printing or showing no adverse news.

The proverbial shit started hitting the fan at Capitol Hill hearings last Wednesday on the deadly 9/11 consulate attack (which the administration now calls ''a mission'') which featured three compelling witnesses, all State Department veterans: Gregory Hicks(photo above) deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya (Tripoli) and highest ranking U.S. diplomat in the country at the time; Mark Thompson, a former Marine who now serves as deputy coordinator for operations in the agency's Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the top top security officers in Libya.

Hicks refuted Team Obama's claims that nobody was told to stand down and not send Special Forces to fly from Tripoli, 600 miles away, to save Ambassador Chris Stevens left ) and three other lives during the 8 hour attack. Hicks says the team received a phone call from the U.S. Special Operations Command Africa telling them ''you can't go'' and that the decision was ''purely political from the top.'' And when he complained a few days later about hearing the White House blaming the anti-Muslim YouTube video as the cause, Hillary demoted him to a desk job with the order to ''Keep your mouth shut!''  Nordstrom testified about how the State Department brass spurned his requests for increased security at the compound and Thompson added that Hillary Clinton got the phone call at 2 a.m. on the night of the attack and contradicted the former Secretary of State 's claims about the administration's response and the ensuing months of cover-ups.

Then, on Friday, ABC New's Jonathan Karl revealed the details of the editing process for the C.I.A,'s ''talking points'' (statement) about the attack, including the edits themselves and some of the reasons a State Department spokeswoman, Victoria Nuland, gave for requesting them. Over the course of 24 hours, the draft evolved from something specific and fairly detailed into a bland, vague mush. Taken out was the remark that ''at least five other attacks against foreign interests in Benghazi'' and as well as, ''We do know that Islamic extremists with ties to Al-Qaida participated in the attack.''  And right from the beginning of the editing process, the talking points contained the erroneous assertion that the attack was ''spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved from there.''

The administration's behavior before, during and after the attack in Benghazi, in which those four Americans died, was unworthy of the greatest power on earth. When you have the Defense Secretary, Leon Panetta, insisting, We quickly responded,'' and realising they responded that they would not respond....is more than shameful. In the midst of a re-election campaign, Obama aides wanted to promote the mythology that the president who killed Osama was vanquishing terror. So they deemed it problematic to mention any possible al-Qaeda involvement in the Benghazi attack. Also, looking ahead to 2016, Hillaryland needed to shore up the mythology that Mrs Clinton was a stellar Secretary of State. So her loyal aide, Nuland, quashed a we-told-you-so paragraph written by the C.I.A. mentioning Al-Qaeda and Ansar al-Sharia (a Libyan militant group) instigating the planned attack.

Yet in her testimony before Congress last January, Clinton said she had no knowledge that security had been chopped drastically a month before the attack nor was she aware of any pleas from her ambassador for security to be increased. But a few weeks ago, Rep Issa (R-CA) revealed documents signed by Clinton denying Steven's request for increased security. And that 2 a.m. phone call Greg Hicks reported having with Clinton as the battle was raging makes clear that she knew, even as her employees were being murdered, that the assault was a pre-planned jihadist attack to mark the anniversary of 9/11, had nothing to do with that YouTube video. Yet, Mrs. Clinton and her partner in deception, Obama, stood on the podium in the Andrews Air Force Base hanger before four flag-draped coffins, fighting back tears, solemnly told their families that ''an awful Internet video that we has nothing to do with'' was responsible for their loved one's slaughter. Media reported that ''her voice broke'' as she rolled out what she knew to be a shameless lie.

The Way I See It....Americans have a right to react with anger to the release of details about how the State Department altered talking points to scrub any mention of terrorist links to the deadly Benghazi attacks. They should put increased pressure on House Speaker John Boehner to insist on a select committee to investigate the entire handling of the assault on the U.S. consulate. This cover-up is among the worst ever. The Pentagon Papers, Iran Contra, Watergate, all the rest of them, but this is going to go down as the most egregious cover-up in American history.

 I feel it would not be long before talk of impeachment is rebounding through the corridors of Washington.  It can't come soon enough when people seriously start to use the I-word when referring to an arrogant, disconnected president. Much of this new information has come as brave whistleblowers have sought to right the record and, in doing so, may have jeopardized their careers. Increasingly it is becoming clear that we have only scratched the tip of the iceberg. If you thought Chicago-on-the-Potomac was dirty, you ain't seen nothing yet!!

Predictions Rise.....Temperatures Don't !


It is a bizarre divergence.  The more carbon dioxide rises, the less the world warms, the more the Warmists say it will.  The latest report from the research facility atop the Mauna Loa volcano on the island of Hawaii, says that as of three days ago, carbon dioxide has passed the long-feared milestone of 400 parts per million. This reading, they say, is reaching a concentration not seen on the earth for millions of years, in the Pliocene Period, covering the rise of mammals but before humans evolved. Geological research shows that the climate then was warmer than today, the world's ice caps were smaller, and the sea level might have been as much as 60-89 feet (20-30 meters) higher. Al Gore jumped at the chance to Tweet:''CO2 levels breaching 400ppm is a sad milestone. A call to action.''

It is really bizarre at this time for warmist scientists referring to carbon dioxide as a ''heat-trapping'' gas and constantly repeating the manta that ''the evidence shows global temperatures and CO2 levels are tightly linked,'' when the evidence is the exact opposite. Firstly, carbon dioxide represents only a tiny fraction of the air we breathe, which of course we also exhale. As of last Thursday's reading, it was 0.04 percent. To put it in perspective, say you filled a million quart jars with air, only about 400 quart jars of carbon dioxide would have been mixed in. To quote Republican congressman from California, Dana Rohrabacher who said at a Congressional hearing, ''The CO2 levels in the atmosphere are rather undramatic.''  So where is all the rapidly accelerating global warming that is supposed to be gripping the world?

Well....it's not in the air. Atmospheric temperature readings show global temperatures have been flat for the last 17 years in spite of rising CO2 (see chart). It's not in the upper ocean. Sea surface temperature readings similarly show no recent warming. It's not in the polar ice caps. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellite data show polar ice is currently more extensive than the long-term average. Antarctica's ice is thicker than in the last 20 years, while the Arctic ice is returning now that strong winds have subsided and Greenland's ice cap is growing too.

Global warming activists have finally come up with a last line of defense of their ideology they know nobody will be able to prove wrong. The missing global warming is in the Bermuda Triangle!  No, I'm not kidding. This is what they are claiming. You see, the alarmists have been telling us for decades that rapidly accelerating global warming was imminent and unavoidable. The problem for the alarmists is the warming peaked in 1999 and now looks like it is in a slow cooling trend. So how do Al Gore, Michael (defunct hockey-stick) Mann, and the rest of the global warming Chicken Little's save face when their warming apocalypse fails to occur? Easy, blame it on the Bermuda Triangle! The NBC News claimed, in a headline last month, ''Where did global warming go? The deep ocean, the experts say'' while the same day USA Today had its headline announcing, ''Where's the heat?  In the oceans depths!''

The headlines reflect a prominent global warming activist claiming that he developed a computer model by which global warming can bypass the atmosphere, bypass the upper ocean, and be entirely hidden the deep ocean; you know, that part of our planet where we really can't measure or find anything. That missing global warming is apparently hanging out at the underwater space alien base in the heart of the Bermuda Triangle. These warmists, of course do their best to make their Bermuda Triangle case sound scientific. The paper claims all this phantom global warming really can directly bypass the atmosphere and the upper ocean if winds start blowing strangely enough and strongly enough to bury the warming deep in the ocean. Thankfully we can spare ourselves the dizzying asserted logic of such  a claim by examining recent global sea surface wind data. As Bermuda Triangle-busting science would have it, NASA satellite instruments show global sea surface wind speeds have declined rather than increased during the past decade.

The Way I See It.....so much for the Bermuda Triangle or any deep sea hideout for this infamous warming. So, is increasing CO2 a harmful pollutant? The answer is absolutely no. In simple terms, CO2 is the lifeblood of the planet. Plant life largely evolved at a time when the atmospheric CO2 concentration was many times what it is today. The lush growth of those millions of years ago is now being dug up from vast seams of coal.  We are, from the plants' point of view, putting more of their food into the air, and they are gobbling it up and are rewarding us with expelled oxygen. So increasing concentration of CO2 does not pose a toxic risk to the planet. Considering that our planet's life system has experienced multimillennial periods of both warmer and colder weather, successful adaptation is the defining characteristic of every living plant and creature in our world today.

Not a single major prediction of ideological environmentalism has come true -- no rising sea levels, no Himalayan glaciers vanishing, no global famines, no cancer epidemics and no resource depletion crisis. So at the moment of its ascendancy, it is environmentalism, not modern civilization, that is tottering. As more critics --including epidemiologists, demographers, toxicologists, climatologists and economists -- point ever more insistently at the yawning gap between claims of political environmentalism and scientific and economic reality, green ideologues and academics who sold out to grants are becoming ever more frantic to deny the growing contradictions.

Having Your Cake and Eating It.....Cardiovascularly !


High blood pressure (hypertension), a condition where the systolic blood pressure is greater than 140 mmHg and the diastolic measurement is over 90 mmHg, is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Now you can literally protect your heart and lower your blood pressure by sitting down to dine on everything from soup to nuts. So let give you the low down on some foods you probably never really thought as having a positive effect on lowering blood pressure.

SOUP:  A cold vegetable soup featuring tomatoes, cucumbers, garlic and olive oil known as Gazpacho. This Mediterranean (mainly Spanish) vegetable-based soup is rich in phytochemicals. Professor A. Medina-Remon, from the University of Barcelona, and colleagues analyzed data collected in a trial on 3,995 Spanish participants, which aimed to quantify the affects of a Mediterranean diet on a population at-risk for cardiovascular diseases. The researchers found that consumption of Gazpacho was inversely associated with the incidence of hypertension, reporting that the risk could be reduced by as much as 27%, The study authors concluded; The association between Gazpacho intake and reduction of blood pressure is probably due to synergy among several active compounds present in the vegetable ingredients used to make the recipe.''

DINNER:  purple-skinned potatoes contain high levels of antioxidant compounds, including phenolic acids, anthocyanins, and carotenoids. Professor Joseph A. Vinsin, from the University of Scranton (Pennsylvania, U.S.A.), and colleagues enrolled 20 men and women, most of whom were overweight and hypertensive, in a study in which the subjects consumed 6-8 small microwaved purple potatoes once a day, or no potatoes for four weeks; then switched to the opposite regimen for another four weeks. The researchers observed that diastolic blood pressure dropped by an average of 4.5%, while systolic pressure decreased by an average of 3.5%. The study authors concluded that ''purple potatoes are an effective hypotensive agent and lower the risk of heart disease and stroke in hypertensive subjects without weight gain.''

Another study found red beets to have blood pressure easing effect as well. Those that are into juicing will find the beet juice is even more effective in reducing blood pressure than previously thought.  So a combination of these two vegetables and a nice portion of grilled or steamed Atlantic Salmon would make an ideal dinner at least a couple of times a week.

DESSERT:  Blueberries and strawberries are rich in a type of flavonoid compound known as anthocyanin. Dr. Eric Rimm, from Harvard School of Public Health (Massachusetts, U.S.A.), and colleagues analyzed data collected on 133,914 women and 23,043 men, surveying the subjects on their dietary intakes of flavonoids. At the close of the follow-up period of 14 years, the team found that the highest average intakes of anthocyanins (ranging from 16.2 to 21.0 milligrams a day) were associated with an 8% decrease in the risk of hypertension. Notably, the researchers observed that a significant 10% reduction in the risk of hypertension was observed in subjects ages 60-plus who consumed more than one serving of blueberries per week, as compared with people in the same age group consuming no blueberries. The team noted; ''that anthocyanins demonstrate vasodilatory properties....from specific structural similarities (including the B-ring hydroxylation and methyoxylation pattern),'' The researchers explained that the underlying biological mechanisms by which flavonoids regulate blood pressure include the effects of flavonoids on vascular blood flow, vascular reactivity, and glucose uptake.

The Way I See It....A nice handful of blueberries or strawberries mixed in a bowl of Greek yoghurt and sprinkled with walnuts or chopped almonds will enhance one's ability to enjoy the tasty effects of this heart-healthy meal, and the benefit of having your cardiovascular system's hypertension reduced and naturally under control without any of a medical blood pressure drug's side effects that show up over time.

Worried About The ''Most Lethal'' Bird Flu Strain ?


Yep, it's time for yet another pandemic flu drill.  ''WHO says new bird strain is one of the most lethal flu viruses,'' Reuters recently declared. Every few years, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) drum up another flu emergency; each promised to be worse than the last, and this year you're likely to start hearing a lot more about a ''lethal bird flu'' again. What many don't realize is that these agencies actually need these faux flu emergencies to practice -- to fine-tune their strategies and test the latest disease surveillance systems. They also need them to justify their own existence, not to mention growth and expansion.

 So far, these pandemic threats have never been anywhere near as lethal as predicted. Unfortunately, many are still hopelessly addicted to fear, so these dramatic warnings will likely continue to be successful in enabling WHO and CDC health officials to accumulate more power and control. Hyping fear of microorganisms has already led to an increase in the numbers of vaccine mandates, which are now threatening people's health and the right to get an education, using a childminding center or keeping a job. In recent years, we've seen a number of aggressively hyped flu pandemics that were based more on media spin than on hard science and never materialized.

While it's prudent to be aware that a pandemic involving a mutated, lethal microorganism could occur in the future, what we've repeatedly seen is that the possibility has been massively over-sold in the past, allowing drug companies to rake in billions of dollars for fast-tracked, inadequately tested vaccines and other dangerous and/or ineffective anti-viral drugs. Sadly, each time a greater number of people tend to end up being harmed by the drugs and ''pandemic'' vaccines than actually succumb to the viral infection. Do you recall the 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 bird flu hyped warnings that mysteriously translated the minuscule number of deaths of bird handlers that had occurred into a worldwide threat of impending extermination? How anybody in their right mind could envision an acquired infection of people in contact with sick birds to spread among the general population of he Western world?

The 2009 swine flu hoax was the cruelest of them to date. After four consecutive years of bird flu warnings that just refused to come to fruition, the H1N1 swine flu because front page news. This turned out to be yet another faux threat that cost tax payers billions for fast-tracked vaccines which wrought havoc across the world. This H1N1 vaccine turned out to be the most reactive flu vaccine ever created, harming far more people than the virus itself. It struck down many people with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, unfortunately even two my patients who didn't heed my warning not to take it. This Syndrome is a neurological disorder in which the body's immune system is stirred up by the crap in the vaccine to attack the person's peripheral nervous system (PNS). The PNS is that part of the nervous system that consists of everything except your brain and spinal cord. It's characterized by progressive muscle weakness, paralysis of the limbs and the breathing muscles. Hospitalization is often a necessity to prevent death. Ironically, this 2009 ''pandemic'' actually turned out to be one of the mildest flu seasons in recent years with a low number of reported deaths.

If we are to believe recent reports, a new more easily transmittable strain of bird flu (H7N9) has emerged in China, reportedly infected 108 people and killing 31 since its discovery in March. According to a WHO spokesperson, they see no evidence so far of the most worrisome scenario -- sustained transmission between people. While each death is tragic, flu death statistics can't compare to the death toll wrought by pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines. An estimated 125,000 people die each year in the U.S. from prescription medications taken correctly as prescribed. And in just six years more than 100 children died after the vaccination with the HPV vaccine Gardasil. Read my Blog posting Guard Against Gardasil !  (April 26, 2010) and GARDASIL Ingredients Exposed !  (April 27, 2010) for more shocking information. No investigation or remedial action whatsoever has been launched by public health authorities in response to these ''lethal medicine'' statistics. Yet, each time a new influenza virus is identified, we're supposed to ''do the right thing'' without asking any questions.

If the CDC or WHO decide the possibility of  H7N9 becoming transmissible to the general population, the real danger lies in the fact that pandemic flu vaccines are virtual untested in adequate clinical trials before they are released to the public, and therefore carry unknown risks over and above the ''normal'' risk you take with any vaccination. According to Joseph Kim, president of Inovio, a California-based company, ''In case of a pandemic, vaccine production is fast-tracked so animal testing is skipped and the vaccine is immediately used to treat humans.''  And therein lies the rub. Pandemic vaccines are among the most high-profit and low-risk business ventures for vaccine makers. They stand to make billions of dollars while being completely shielded from liability if the vaccines turns out to be hazardous, like it turned out in 2009. Not to mention they save a ton of money on development and testing on either animals or humans.

The Way I See It....you should be prepared to hear more fear mongering about the H7N9 bird flu. In the meantime, I'd like to remind you that a healthy immune system is your best and primary defense against any viral threat. Following these simple guidelines will help you keep your immune system i optimal working order so you're less likely to acquire the infection to being with and if you do get sick, you better prepared to recover without serious complications -- which by the way will give you a longer lasting naturally acquired immunity to the strain of flu you experienced.
  • Your Nervous System and immune system are ''joined-at-the-hip'' and combined make a strong deterrent to any virus. The first priority is to get your spine checked out by a Chiropractor to remove any nerve interference to its proper functioning and to stimulate the immune system..
  • Optimize Your Gut Flora. The bacteria in your gut have enormous control of immune system. Avoid sugars, processed foods and most grains and take probiotics in some form to feed the good bacteria.
  • Optimizing Your Vitamin D levels is one of the absolute best strategies for avoiding infections of all kinds. Adults need about 8,000 IUs a day and be sure to take Vitamin K2 as it has a powerful synergy and will help prevent Vitamin D toxicity.
  • Get Plenty of Rest. If your body is overly fatigued it will be harder for it to fight the flu.
  • Get Regular Exercise. Exercise increases your circulation and blood flow throughout your body. The components of your immune system are also better distributed and better to respond if the infection spreads.
  • Wash your Hands. Washing hands will decrease the likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people.
  • Use Natural Immune Boosters such as Olive Leaf extract, Omega 3 Fats (Krill oil), oil of Rosemary and Garlic.

U.K. Paper Claims Saudis Warned The U.S. About Tsarnaev !


Saud al-Faisal
The White House and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) claim this story is untrue, and it's based entirely on the testimony of a single anonymous Saudi official (plus corroboration from one equally anonymous DHS official), so a grain of salt is recommended to aid in digesting it. If it's true, it's a devastating bombshell that could prove to be more of a game-changer than Syria's chemical weapons. (Okay, maybe that's a weak metaphor, given President Obama's definition of a ''game changer'' as something that doesn't change anything except political rhetoric.)

At any rate, the UK Daily Mail reports that a ''senior Saudi government official with direct knowledge of the document'' says his government warned the Department of Homeland Security, in writing about Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2012. The letter allegedly included a specific warning that he might be interested in assembling bombs, advising that his mail should be checked for bomb-making materials. As a point of fact, the Saudi warning was separate from the multiple Red Flags raised by Russian intelligence in 2011 and was based on human intelligence developed independently in Yemen.

So, the guy was too radical to get into Saudi Arabia for a pilgrimage to Mecca, but American intelligence didn't think he was worth keeping an eye on?  Amazing!  The Saudi source for the Daily Mail story stated that the Kingdom is especially leery of radicalized American Muslims, when they try to visit Mecca, prompting the Saudis to ''carefully examine every visa application.'' This high-ranking official provided a wealth of detail about the warning the Saudi government sent to the United State. He spoke on the condition of anonymity. He suggested that the Saudi Ministry of Interior sent the letter out of an abundance of caution in order to be helpful to the U.S., even though its intelligence on Tsarnaev wasn't yet fully developed.

The Saudi official also implied that this warning about Tsaraev might have led to the meetings President Obama held with the Saudi interior minister in January, and a curious unscheduled meeting he held with the foreign minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, two days after the Boston Marathon bombings. If that's true -- particularly if the interior minister personally conveyed a warning about Tsaraev to Obama in January -- all hell will officially break loose. The other odd event was that it was reported after the bombings that a Saudi by the name of Abul Ali Al-Harbi was hospitalized and became a ''suspect'' and then ''a person of interest''. His apartment was searched in front of the news media's cameras and a roommate was questioned at length as was Al-Harbi by federal and local authorities. No confirmation was given to his involvement.

Then amazingly, two days later, Michelle Obama is caught on film visiting Al-Habi in the hospital and chats with him and wishes him well (photo left). Strangely, the next day the authorities report that ''the Saudi national is no longer a person of interest.''  Did Obama's meeting with Prince al-Faisal arrange a ''Free-Pass'' for Al-Habi for some important reason. It is next to impossible for a suspect to go from ''a person of interest'' to being NOT a person of interest in just 3 days. I found out that this ''innocent'' Saudi student that was injured in the bombing has ties to several al-Qaeda terrorists. Something I'm sure the Saudi government didn't want this information to get out and embarrass them. A quick look at the Arabic sources should raise eyebrows of every American who has seen the effects of the latest terorist attack on American soil.

Many of Abul Ali Al-Harbi's clan are steeped in terrorism and are members of Al-Qaeda. Out of a list of 85 terrorists listed by the Saudi government it shows several of the Al-Harbi clan to have been active fighters in Al-Qaeda:
  • #15 - Badr Saud Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
  • #26 - Khalid SAlim Uwaid Al-Lahibi Al-Harbi
  • #29 - Raed Abdullah Salem Al-Thahiri Al-Harbi
  • #43 - Abdullah Abul Rahman Muhammad Al-Harbi  (leader)
  • #60 - Fayez Ghuneim Humeid Al-Hijri Al-Harbi
  • #73 Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
Then you have 6 scumbag Al-Harbi clan members rotting in Gitmo. This boy's so Innocent? NOT!

The Daily Mail dutifully includes denials from the White House and Department of Homeland Security, which are really going to come back to haunt them, if this story checks out. If true, the account will produce added pressure on the DHS and Obama to explain their collective inaction after similar warnings were offered about Tsaraev by the Russian government. A DHS official denied that the agency received any such warning from the Saudis and the White House took a similar stance. ''We and other relevant U.S. government agencies have no record of such a letter being received,'' said Caitlin Hayden, a spokesperson for the resident's National Security Council.

Of course, this is the same administration in which the Attorney General, Eric Holder, dodged perjury charges in the deadly Fast and Furious scandal by claiming he never reads his emails, and the White House managed to bluff its way through an election by claiming some nameless rogue operative in the intelligence community bamboozled it with a phony story about ''spontaneous video protests'' when terrorists murdered the U.S. ambassador to Libya in Benghazi.

Al-Harbi    and   You Know Who
The Way I See It....there's a possibility the DHS received the information from the Saudi government but never passed it on to the White House. I've heard that communication between DHS and Obama's national security apparatus isn't always what it should be. It's like one hand didn't know what the other was doing because of a turf war. I thought the Department of Homeland Security was supposed to fix that. In fact, I thought the entire purpose of DHS was to break down communications barriers between intelligence and law-enforcement agencies. If this story is true, then not only should Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano lose her job, but the department should be dismantled.

These allegations are so explosive that we really need to see that physical documentation before reaching any conclusions. But where there's smoke there usually is a fire smoldering. Just following the dots is leading to some curious offshoots of intrigue and political machinations. Even down to the quick and quiet deportation of Al-Harbi. We know the Obama Administration's record for honestly, transparency, and inter-agency coordination is appalling, so there's no reason to take their denials on faith, but the Saudis have been known to create stories when they want to burnish their own credentials as terror fighters in spite of funding radical mosques on American soil. Just as the Benghazi debacle stills smolders in people's minds and is not going away, it looks as if another hot spot of foreign policy ineptitude could flare up and get Obama BBQed.

Warmest Temperatures In 4,000 Years? Not So Fast!


Last month the mainstream media (read ''lamestream'') were reporting on another Hockey Stick -- this one billed as ''scarier'' then Mann's in breathless fashion about a new paper claiming the current temperatures are their warmest in 4,000 years. The message is..be afraid, very afraid, of the ''unprecedented'' (there's that word again in the abstract) 0.7C temperature rise!  Already, however, objective scientists are reporting serious flaws in the paper. The media may wish to paint a picture of runaway global warming, but the science tells a completely different story.

Recently graduated Ph.D student Shaun Marcott has published this paper claiming he compiled a proxy temperature reconstruction indicating current temperatures are their warmist in at least 4,000 years. Mr Marcott didn't even give a nod to the years around 850AD to 1050AD when it was three degrees warmer than today, when the Viking were running around  raping and pillaging and all the while finding a green land west of Iceland which they called Greenland! Over a period of 200 years they established about 80 settlements for farming and livestock. The warmth didn't hurt them and it really was a godsend for them.

Proxy temperature reconstructions require careful scrutiny because the proxies are not direct temperature measurements, but represent other data and factors that may or may not have a close correlation with past temperatures. Also, an agenda-driven researcher can easily cherry-pick certain anomalous proxies that support a predetermined conclusion while ignoring a much larger set of proxies that tell a different study. I'm referring to the most notorious of agenda-driven proxy reconstructions that was published by global warming alarmist Michael Mann. As a relatively unknown recent Ph.D graduate, Mann attained wealth, fame and adulation among global warming alarmists after assembling a temperature reconstruction that he claimed showed global temperatures underwent a steady, roughly 1000 year decline followed by a SHARP rise during the 20th century.

The media reported on the Mann Hockey Stick as if it settled the global warming debate, but objective scientists pointed out several crucial flaws that invalidated Mann's claims. After assembling a blue ribbon panel of experts to study Mann's reconstruction, distinguished statistician, Edward Wegman, reported the criticisms of Mann's Hockey Stick were ''valid and compelling.''  The Marcott proxy reconstruction Hockey Stick shares much in common with Mann's version. Marcott is also a recently graduated Ph.D student whose asserted temperature readings has launched him out of obscurity into media fame. Unfortunately, also similar to the Mann Hockey Stick, the media is ignoring the devastating critiques of Marcott's reconstruction and misleading the public into believing the global warming hysteria has a solid basis. This is in spite of the recent chart by the United Kingdom's Met Office showing there has been no warming for over 15 years now! (chart left)

Don Easterbrook, geology professor emeritus at Western Washington University, (right) has published two papers summarizing and documenting many of the already discovered flaws in Marcott's reconstruction. In spite of Marcott's defensive response on the RealClimate website, Easterbrook and other scientists are finding more flaws and areas of concern in Marcott's reconstruction. Easterbrook points out that 80% of the data used by Marcott reflect oceanic data, not atmospheric temperatures. ''Thus they reflect any one of of a number of ocean variations not related to atmospheric climates,'' Easterbrook writes. He also notes that Marcott recycled Mann's proxies to help compile the small portion of Marcott's land-based proxies. ''Discredited proxies by any other name are still discredited proxies,'' he states. Perhaps most damaging, Easterbrook observes that many published studies and data, including analysis of extremely reliable Greenland ice core data, completely contradict Marcott's asserted proxy data.

The Way I See It.....when many temperature studies, including studies presented by the U.N.'s I.P.C.C., indicate current global temperatures are cooler than the vast majority of the 4,000 years, and then an outlier study with quickly identified serious flaws claims exactly the opposite, one would think the media would make a note of the discrepancies. Unfortunately, the media has demonstrated little interest in doing so. There are several reasons for this:
  1. The news media is prone to overhype the news events of the day. Hype sells newspaper and attract viewers. This is the case for all news topics and certainly applies to global warming.
  2. Fear captivates people. This is one of the reasons why TV and print media news contains so much bad news and so little good news. A single breathless report of impending global warming doom is going to rope in more viewers and readers than a whole collection of reports explaining that current temperatures are actually quite cool in historical perspective.
  3. It is no secret that the media drifts left on many issues, and drifts left on environmental issues, catering to the ''watermelons'' in particular.
Combine these 3 factors and you have a textbook recipe for yellow journalism; a perfect storm representing all the reasons why people no longer trust the mainstream media to be fair, balanced and accurate. Global warming alarmists put their trust in the media, while global warming realists put their trust in the science.

Bombers Mosque in Boston A Factory For Terrorists !


The mosque attended by the two brothers accused in the Boston Marathon double bombing has been associated with other terror suspects, has invited radical speakers to a sister mosque in Boston and is affiliated with a Muslim group that critic say nurses grievances that can lead to extremism. Several people who attended the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) mosque in Cambridge, Mass., have been investigated for Islamic terrorism, including  conviction of the mosque's first president, Abdulrahman Alamoudi, in connection with an assassination plot against a Saudi prince. Alamoudi, who signed the articles of incorporation as the mosque's president, was sentenced to 23 years in federal court in 2004 for his role as a facilitator, being al-Qaida's top fundraiser, in what federal prosecutors called a Libyan assassination plot against then-crown prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. Abdullah is now the Saudi king.

The Boston Bombers represent not just themselves but a culture that radicalizes people in their very own mosques. Here's a few ISB members and leaders that have been convicted of terrorism:
  • A bitch named Aafia Siddiqui, an MIT scientist-turned-al-Qaeda agent, who visited and prayed at the Cambridge mosque, was arrested in Afghanistan in 2008 while in possession of cyanide canisters and plans for an attack in New York City. She grabbed a rifle while in detention and shot at FBI agents for which she was convicted in 2010 and is serving an 86-year sentence.
  • Tarek Mehanna, who worshiped at the mosque, was sentenced in 2012 to 17 years in prison for conspiring to aid al-Qaeda. This scumbag had traveled to Yemen to seek terrorist training and plotted to use automatic weapons to shoot up a mall in the Boston suburbs the FBI alleges.
  • Ahmad Abousamra, was identified by the FBI on charges of providing support to terrorists and conspiracy to kill Americans in a foreign country.
  • Yuself al-Qaradawi, a mosque trustee and Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader banned from the U.S. after issuing a fatwa that OK'd killing U.S. soldiers in America and overseas.
  • Jamal Badawi, a former trustee of the Islamic Society of Boston Trust, which owns both mosques, was named as a non-indicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorism trial in Texas over the funneling of $12 million to Hamas, the so-called Palestinian wing of of the Muslim Brotherhood.
In 2009, ISB invited Shaykh Yasir Qadhi (left) to speak, even though this deadshit Saudi radical advocates turning the U.S. into an Islamic state and calls Jews ''pigs'' and Christians ''filthy'' polytheists whose ''life holds no value in the state of jihad.''  The present ISB leaders have defended its rotten apples, despite overwhelming evidence against them. It must be in the Muslim DNA to deny anything that besmirches their fellow murders on their jihad mission. One member was quoted as saying, ''civilians were not innocent because they paid taxes to support the government and because they were kaffir (non-Muslims).''  Just like the Tsamsev brothers mother having the unmitigated gall to say her sons were set-up! USA Today reports the mosque gets millions from the Saudis, who push an anti-Western, filthy, nasty strain of Islam...Wahhabism.

The Way I See It....those ISB mosques are run by the Muslim American Society (MAS), which the FBI believes is the main front for the Muslim Brotherhood and their partners in crime, Hamas and al-Qaeda. In its propaganda, MAS routinely claims America is at war with Islam. The younger Tsamaev brother cited this myth as a reason for attacking innocents. President Obama vows to finally crack down on terrorists. Perhaps he should focus on the spiritual factories radicalizing them under our very noses.  I commented on this in a blog posting on May 6th, 2010 entitled, ''JIHAD: As American As Apple Pie''.

I'm happy to report that Tamerlan's mosque, he regularly attended has now disavowed him and his declined to offer funeral services as requested by the uncle. Mosque official, Imam Tala Eid, said the bomber killed innocent people and brought shame to his family, his country and his religion. The FBI has offered to turn the body over to his parents, but relatives in the U.S. are having a hard time finding any mosque that will take his remains. I would like to see his body strung up in Boston Common and let the birds take care of him little bite by little bite.
