Woolwich attack: ´Lone
wolves’ who run with the pack

Telegraph [UK], by Andrew Gilligan

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 5/27/2013 9:13:33 PM

No British soldier has ever been killed like this – not even in battle, let alone in the London suburbs during the Wednesday lunch hour. But the reactions to the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby followed a much more familiar pattern. Journalists and analysts rushed to explain the attack as the work of “lone wolves”, “self-radicalised” online. Politicians demanded crackdowns on jihadi websites and the revival of the so-called “snoopers’ charter”, a Bill allowing the authorities to monitor the internet use of every person in the country, in the belief that the plot could somehow

As Mark Steyn so aptly put it regarding the stereotype that the MSM was trying to put in our minds regarding the Boston bombers. The MSM wants us to buy the meme that these terrorists are just "card carrying members of the amalgamated union of lone wolves and isolated extremists."

The rules they play by are very simple, if your an Infidel you must die. They continue to kill and the media and politicians try to cover for them.

The Boston bomber "lone wolf" reportedly flew overseas and was trained there, presumably by someone.

Rather than demand crackdowns on websites, the politicians should demand crackdowns on those who believe and preach and read that it is ok to "kill the Infidel."

These supposed "lone wolves" were described by a terrorism expert after the Boston Massacre. Young radicals, trained in terrorist ways, were turned loose to find their own targets. They were never to have any communication with their trainers, nor were they part of an organization or a network. Thus they were in a sense "lone wolves". But not really.

Muslim community activists recruited them, trained them, and turned them loose to go to targets of their choosing in locations of their choosing.

maybe this is too much me watching Animal Planet - but a lone wolf won´t be allowed near the pack - he´s turned away by the alpha male. And wolves are no more organized than humans. If this guy was running with a ´´pack´´ he was likely a member.

I´m just sayin´...

There´s an even worse angle to the brutal slaying.Apparently no one came to the poor guy´s rescue because everyday people can´t carry anything that resembles a weapon .If the left got their way,we´d have the same condition here.

But we have mob beatdowns here and nobody gets involved. The left sits around in a room and concludes if you do anything drastic against Islamists,it´ll only make things worse,so appease your butt off.

Where there is Islam, there is death and destruction. Brutal conflicts around the globe have one thing in common and that is they are predominately perpetrated by muslims. Political correctness protected and enabled Islam after 9/11/2001 by calling it a religion of peace. When is an example of peace going to be forthcoming? We see multitude acts of unspeakable violence committed by Muslims shouting Allahu Akbar and evidently, we are to ignore that.

When our government will not name the enemy, we cannot defeat it. You can´t appease away violence. It must be defeated. Too many of our military have been killed and maimed because we do not have the will to defeat this enemy. When our government continues to bow and scrape to Muslim sensibilities while it offers up our best and brightest on islam´s altar of death with the military´s ROE´s and political correctness, THAT is terror.

If the media ever told the truth about isamists -- the politicians would have to DO something about these attacks....

As the Iron Lady said -- "this is not the time to go wobbly".

I think -- Lady Thatcher -- you would be the best man for the job. You and Churchill saved England. Could you send someone to save America?

Saudi Money. Could there be any other reason for reasonably sane, rational, people to say it is day when in fact it is dark. How many billions would be needed to buy off media and politicians and academics both in Europe and here in America. I would guess a lot fewer than the Saudi´s could afford to pay.

What amazes me is that the islamonuts commit these atrocities and there is no real pushback from the victim countries. There is no change in the immigration laws and the perpetrators are handled with kid gloves. Sweden´s response was to sit back and watch their cars burn. These people really have become sheep.

If they decide to strike again in America on a scale equal to or worse than 9/11 are we going to join the sheep or will the muslim communities finally begin to pay the price for years of anti-Western thought and action and the enjoyment of PC treatment? I would like to think that we are still capable of effective retaliation. George W. Bush did it and he was demonized for years, but we held our heads high.

It is rather a large step to go out with a machete and murder in cold blood a total stranger.

Why is it that so many euphemisms, explanations and excuses are made for why these people do such things? Why not simply tell the truth -- that there are evil people in the world and they are that way simply because that is who they are.

No explanations are needed in most such heinous cases as this one. "Self-radicalized" is a non-sequitur. By definition, if one is radicalized, it is the Self who carries out the radicalized act, not someone else.

If one must use "radicalized", use it properly, e.g., "The subhuman savage who hacked this soldier to death was a radical Muslim."

Lose the "self" part. It neither adds nor explains anything.

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion
Washington Post, by Kimberley Winston    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/19/2014 10:46:11 PM     Post Reply
“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

´8THEIST´ license plate in NJ: Why
states can´t rein in the vanity plate monster
Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/19/2014 4:09:21 PM     Post Reply
If you can get a New Jersey vanity license plate that reads “BAPTIST,” why not one that reads “8THEIST”? That’s the question Shannon Morgan, a self-describe atheist, is asking in a lawsuit after the New Jersey department of motor vehicles denied her vanity plate application. Her main complaint is a bureaucracy deeming that “8THEIST” has connotations that offend “good taste and decency,” the bar which the state uses to judge the suitability of personalized plate messages. She also wants the state to adopt a more “viewpoint-neutral” vanity plate approval policy, since when she typed “BAPTIST” into the DMV application it

When Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she’s pregnant, it took the media about two nanoseconds to home in on what that really means: Hillary, should she run for president in 2016, will campaign as a grandmother. (Snip) And for another, Hillary’s newfound role as grandmother isn’t necessarily a political boon. As I wrote in the Washington Monthly’s current issue, it could very easily cut both ways. After all, Hillary, who will be 68 in 2016, already runs the risk of appearing old, a vulnerability not lost on her detractors. From the Monthly: (At sixty-six, Hillary is “not particularly old for

Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins, said he wasn’t sure if the measure was

KIEV/MOSCOW - Armed separatists took virtual control of a city in eastern Ukraine on Saturday and Kiev prepared troops to deal with what it called an "act of aggression by Russia". Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
