Rep. McCaul calls Sochi terror
threat the greatest he´s seen

CBS News, by Rebecca Kaplan

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/26/2014 6:02:45 PM

Security at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi continues to be a top concern for Americans traveling to Russia, though lawmakers and other public figures are trying not to cause a mass panic by urging people to stay home. (Snip) In particular, McCaul said al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has called for a global jihad against the Olympics. “There’s never been this connection between Pakistan, Afghanistan and Chechen rebels before. Although, some would argue there´s been support. But for the first time, Zawahiri coming out and endorsing, blessing and calling for this global jihad against the Olympics, wow, that gives

Everywhere in the world where there is ongoing armed conflict - Europe, Asia, Africa...it involves muslims. The only terrorists in thew worlkd today...are muslims. They are worse than the nazis. Yet everyone -especially the cowardly media- is afraid to say so.

The world is afraid and Muslim terrorists know it. Obama will not answer an attack the way Bush did. God forbid, but if the worst happens, who will really go after them? The force it would be required to take them down for good, is unpalatable to the west. Therefore, we will learn to "deal" with the treats, and ultimately the death and destruction they are determined to deliver on us. We should have flattened Afghanistan and made it clear the same thing would happen after every attack. It may have been terribly harsh, but in the long run, it would have been effective. Now they are close to going nuclear and who in their right mind doubts their willingness to do the unthinkable.

For reasons I have never understood, the PC world of the left put these Muslim thugs right behind the American Blacks as people the USA should help, not hold accountable and ignore facts relating to their uncivil actions.

I understand the left/msm thinking on the American Black...the, vote, the vote. After fifty years of lefty programs they have all but destroyed the Black family but they have the vote locked down.

For over thirteen centuries the Muslims have been an existential threat to the West in their quest for a worldwide Caliphate. This is not a new threat, nor is the effective response unknown or untried. We have multiple examples of the West repelling the Mohammedan invaders from Charles Martel and the Battle of Tours in 732, to the victory at Granada in 1492, to the Battle of Lapanto in 1571, to Thomas Jefferson and the First Barbary War in 1801-05. Every time that the Muslims were met with a dedicated force firm in the defense of their territory they have been defeated and retreated. Every time the West has ignored or minimized Islamic aggression, such as the fall of Byzantium in 1453, they have been defeated.

Today the West mimics Byzantium with moribund bureaucracies complacent in their wealth and prosperity, arrogant about their secure place in world, and unable to arouse a robust self-defense. The post-modern West has abandoned its strong Judeo-Christian heritage in exchange for a mushy secular humanism that recoils from any recognition that we are in a religious war. This is why we have a War on Terror rather than the more appropriate War Against Islam. After decades of deconstruction of our language and philosophies we describe the modern Islamic threat in terms of tactics rather than openly define the enemy and its goals.

The radical Marxist students protesters of the 1960s and 70s marched to the slogan, “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Western Civ has got to go.” It appears that they will get their wish.

´McCaul said the U.S. has diplomatic security corps, FBI agents and other officials to help with security.´

I see, are these the same security organizations that protected our diplomatic personnel in Benghazi. Real security starts from the top down, and terrorists need to know that that retaliation for attacks will be swift and devastating. That isn´t going to happen with our present non government.

Since our leadership is pro Muslim, I don´t expect any interruption of the Islamic terrorist agenda. Our government is too involved in spying on us to protect to bother with real terrorists.

After all, wrecking our medical system, giving amnesty to illegal criminals and spending ourselves into financial oblivion is job one in DC, so live with the results of complete incompetence.

KGB terrorist experienced Putin will do a better job than an Obama would.
However, any death and damage done at Sochi, will finally wake up our politically correct American environmental wackos who still believe Islamic jihad terrorism is a workplace environment issue!

The IOC is as bad as the corrupt U.N. who see the world through rose colored glasses and ignore the real terror threats from Muslims all over the world. Sochi should never, ever been chosen as the site for the Olympics. How much did Putin bribe them? Even the NYT was critical of this choice. Now that´s surprising.

It´s time for the commies in our gummint to show Solidarity with Putin,
the crime boss of the former communist Soviet Union, now posing as "Russia."

So let´s have our "home-grown" Wannabe Kommie Dicktater and Moochelle,
plus those amazing diplomats on the world scene Hill-err-ee-ass Herself
and sidep.rick Billyboobboob Klintoon...
all go to Sochi ASAP for some selfies and pressers that will boost Vladimir, their Soviet Soulmate.

If the "wurst" should happen...
and no, I don´t mean a selfie sent from Sochi by Anthony Wiener
from the pole-vaulting venue, if ya know what I mean...
that´ll be trumpeted in the Wall Street Urinal, no doubt...

But... if a Benghazi-like "wurst" should happen to these intrepid
AmeriKan diplomats, at least we´ll know that they´ve made the ultimate sacrifice
for their nation by biting the dust amongst Komrades in arms on foreign soil.

It couldn´t happen to a better Krewe of Wannabe Kommie Dicktaters.
Putin can then fulfill the age-old promise of his prescient predecessor,
Nikita Khruschev... who so wisely observed...

"We will bury you... !!"

Ahhhh, if only it were so...
So many promises, so few kept...

A clarification, if I may...

Obviously the "pole-vaulting venue" at the Winter Olympics would be
where the confused Polish ski team would plant their ski poles
and attempt some sharp turns by vaulting around them, as it were...

Nice recovery, eh?

I am not so sure the location of a terror attack only involves the Sochi area. Given the scope and publicity of the NSA´s spying on US citizens, I question if the risk of attack on US soil during the games is equally as high.

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

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

Poll: Hillary Clinton’s numbers worst

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

Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state´s mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London.

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.

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

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. 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

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."
