Yesterday a man with a hatchet attacked two police officers in New York City, striking one in the head and the other in the arm. He was shot to death shortly after engaging the officers. The officer who was struck in the head suffered a skull fracture, but is in stable condition at a hospital. More from NBC New York:
The officers, all recent graduates of the Police Academy assigned to the 103rd Precinct in Jamaica, were asked to pose for a picture by a freelance photographer at the intersection of 162nd Street and Jamaica Avenue shortly before 2 p.m. when the man attacked them from behind, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said.

The suspect "charged at the officers with a hatchet in his hand," Bratton said
"Unprovoked and not speaking a word, the male then swung at one of the officers with a hatchet, striking his right arm. After striking that officer, the suspect continuing swinging the hatchet, striking a second officer in the head."

The metal hatchet was about 18 inches long.

Law enforcement officials identified the suspect as 32-year-old Zale Thompson.
The attack came just one day after a Canadian soldier was shot to death while on guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa and shortly after the FBI released a memo to law enforcement warning of attacks on police officers from ISIS sympathizers.
The memo was issued by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as a Joint Intelligence Bulletin and is titled, “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and Its Supporters Encouraging Attacks Against Law Enforcement and Government Personnel.” It is labeled, “UNCLASSIFIED/FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY” and asserts that it may be exempt from the Freedom of Information Act and should not be released tot he public, the media, or anyone else not authorized by the DHS.

The document alerts US law enforcement personnel, including FBI Special Agents, to be aware of their surroundings and to monitor their families’ use of social media to “avoid revealing FBI or law enforcement affiliation.”
Terror in this case is not being ruled out and reviews of Zale's social media pages show discussion and posts favorable to terror.

Islamic State Twitter accounts also appear to be taking credit for the attack.

I was near Washington, D.C. interviewing the visiting Geert Wilders, leader of the Netherlands' Party for Freedom, when the news flashed that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the Canadian convert to Islam who terrorized Ottawa on Wednesday, had previously had his passport lifted by the Canadian government as an officially designated "high-risk traveler."

That means that before Zehaf-Bibeau put a bullet through the chest of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, a young reservist standing guard with an unloaded rifle at the Canadian National War Memorial, and before Zehaf-Bibeau rushed into the nation's Parliament building, where, thankfully, he was gunned down by security before he could murder again, Canadian authorities had already identified him as someone likely to join the jihad abroad. In fact, so likely was Zehaf-Bibeau to join a group such as ISIS, Canadian authorities did what many Western governments are doing in the name of counter-terrorism: They took Zehaf-Bideau's passport away.

"That's the same as the other one!" Wilders notes energetically, referring to Martin Couture-Rouleau, also an Islamic convert and "high-risk traveler," who drove his car into two Canadian soldiers in Quebec earlier in the week, killing Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent. Couture-Rouleau, who was shot dead at the scene of his crime, had had his passport taken from him in July when he was arrested at the airport before he could travel to Turkey.

In other words, but for good Canadian police work, it looks as if both of these murderers would have left Canada and disappeared into the bloody maw of the Islamic State. Phew -- that was close?
No, that was insane. Such a policy, which the Dutch government also follows, frustrates Wilders to no end.

"Let them leave," says Wilders. "Let them leave, or detain them. I find it incomprehensible that Western governments stop people who want to leave to fight for jihad in Syria or Iraq." Let them go and never let them return, he says, or with sufficient evidence, detain them. While the West combats the Islamic State, he points out, "nothing is being done to make our own countries safe."

Wilders supports the U.S.-led bombing campaign against the Islamic State, and is proud that Dutch F-16s are flying combat missions. He points out, however, that military action in the Middle East is "not an excuse not to do anything domestically."

But not doing anything domestically -- anything, that is, that protects our liberties at home from the encroachments of Islam and its body of repressive, discriminatory and misogynistic laws known as sharia -- perfectly describes the Western response in the post-9/11 era. It is such policies of appeasement that Wilders has been combating for more than a decade as a member of the Dutch Parliament and also leader of the Party for Freedom. Wilders is subject to continuing Islamic death threats, requiring him to live in a 24/7 security bubble.

Ottawa shooter had “connections” to jihadists

/ Jihad Watch
ottawapolice2“According to a U.S. counterterrorism source, Zehaf-Bibeau was connected to Hasibullah Yusufzai through social media. Yusufzai is wanted by Canadian authorities for traveling overseas to fight alongside Islamist fighters in Syria, The Globe and Mail, a Canadian newspaper, reported.”

“Sources: Ottawa shooting suspect had ties to jihadists,” by Jason Hanna, CNN, October 23, 2014:
(CNN) — The suspect in Wednesday’s shootings in Ottawa had “connections” to jihadists in Canada who shared a radical Islamist ideology, including at least one who went overseas to fight in Syria, multiple U.S. sources told CNN on Thursday.
However, Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that there is “no evidence at this stage” that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was linked to a wider group, or network, of jihadists.
“There’s no evidence at this stage for us to know that. Obviously there’s an investigation going on, and we hope to learn more in the … coming days. It was clear that, police authorities now have announced, that he was acting alone yesterday,” he said.
According to a U.S. counterterrorism source, Zehaf-Bibeau was connected to Hasibullah Yusufzai through social media. Yusufzai is wanted by Canadian authorities for traveling overseas to fight alongside Islamist fighters in Syria, The Globe and Mail, a Canadian newspaper, reported.
American officials are reportedly scouring databases and communications for possible links to American-based jihadists.
Other radicalized people connected to Zehaf-Bibeau are still believed to be living in Canada, two U.S. law enforcement officials said….
Obama's Politics and Policies are Indeed on November's Ballot
By: Diane Sori

Let's get something straight right upfront...Barack HUSSEIN Obama has NO love for America, Americans, our military or our veterans, Israel or any of our other true allies, nor does he hold any affinity whatsoever for Christians and Jews...period. Barack HUSSEIN Obama is indeed (I believe) a muslim and a supporter of all things islamic... of all things counter to the Judeo-Christian principals, morals, and values upon which this great nation was founded...and the fabric of our American society in his eyes would be better served by prayer rugs extending from one coast of America to the other.

Barack HUSSEIN Obama's presidency is a failure...a complete and total failure. The man who promised 'hope and change' instead has delivered NOTHING but 'distrust, stagnation, utter despair, and disgust.'

And his response to the anger building NOT just amongst Republicans and TEA Party members but even amongst some of his own party's loyal has shown that this man elected to the highest office in our land...or should I say this man who stole an election through voter fraud and intimidation, machine tampering, and the dead rising from their slumber to vote...has proven time and again that America's enemies are indeed his trusted friends and allies.

And while the name Barack HUSSEIN Obama might NOT be on the November ballot, know that his politics and policies...both domestic and foreign...sure the hell are.

On the domestic front, we all know Obama's so-touted economic recovery is anything but...that the jobs numbers released every week are in reality numbers that hide the all important truth that more Americans are dropping out of the work force then ever before or are being demoted to part-time employment.

And need I mention the word 'ObamaCare'...the anything but "if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor...if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance" plan, complete with its anything but cost effective continuing to rise premiums...complete with its 'death panels' that some of us have already, unfortunately, witnessed in action.

And lest we forget his plan to grant amnesty through his 'pen and his phone' to 34 million ILLEGALS so that they can compete for and take away jobs from mostly the poor and his own core black base. And we know this is being done solely to increase the Democratic voting block for generations to come as these people...these now 'LEGAL ILLEGALS' will gladly sell their souls and their votes to the Democratic party in exchange for even more freebies and handouts then they now already readily and greedily receive.    

Simply for Americans be in exchange for votes will become both this administration's and any future Democratic administration's mantra as taking jobs away from LEGAL Americans will well fulfill their goal of having our economy limp along until it finally just gives out and crashes.

And what of Obama's anti-military agenda...his tying of our troops hands so they cannot fight to win...his defaming attacks on both those currently wearing our nation's uniform and on our vets...his cutting our fighting forces to record low numbers along with his cutting of America's defense budget to where he has actually put the homeland in danger. And let's NEVER forget the more than 3,500 American troops who died in Iraq ...along with those who came home anything but whole...and add in all the American treasure spent to help free a country from terrorist groups like ISIS who are now basically in control. 

And what of Obama's foreign policy agenda would be quite laughable if it wasn't actually more dangerous...extremely more America's national security and to the health, safety, and welfare of 'We the People' than that of any previous president's foreign policy agendas for this man's foreign policy agenda...or should I say lack of a true one that has calculatingly and with malice succeeded in attacking our nation's sense of well-being. Now we are forced to constantly look over our shoulders because instead of attacking our enemies with strength and fortitude...instead of keeping our enemies 'over there'...this man has placated said enemies so that they are now 'over here' as well...welcomed to enter through our still unsecured southern border by a man who daily works to implode America from within...that is in between rounds of golf  I should say.

And what of America's enemies...especially the enemy called islamic...YES islamic...enemy that our civilized minds still cannot totally comprehend. And it took ISIS to finally get Obama's attention of sorts but only after they beheaded two innocents of our own...and only after 'We the People' showed outward revulsion, anger, and disgust. Finally addressing in his usual limited and superficial sort of way the savagery of those who are his brethren...this most miserable excuse of a president still continues to allow ISIS to relish in beheading Christians and other minorities as he, for the most part, remains silent or gives mere lip-service to all the atrocities they do.

And ISIS counts on this for Obama's silence is indeed deafening NOT just towards their brutality, but also towards Russia's aggression in Ukraine as well as towards China's military build-up and surging to the forefront economy. And that deafening silence can also be heard towards both Iran moving forward with its uranium enrichment program on their way to becoming a nuclear power as well as his silence in defending Israel against her enemies for Israel's enemies are our enemies as well. And right now his silence is loudly screaming as our Marine remains languishing in a Mexican jail while he and his minions in the media keep us focused on a virus called Ebola.

And now with the November mid-terms less than two weeks away it's important to remember these things above all else for these are the things...the issues...the true politics and policies...that affect us all. These are the things that are on the ballot...the unsecured southern border...ILLEGALS...amnesty... our military...a foreign  policy agenda that favors America's enemies...islamic terrorists from 'over there' now showing up 'over here'...the slaughter and savagery done against Christians, Jews, and any who do NOT believe in their false god known as allah... savages by the name of ISIS, al-Qaeda, and Khorasan...biological stealth jihad possibly in the guise of Ebola...the list is endless and almost all encompassing.

Almost I say because the social issues that some so like to shove in our faces...and by some I mean those who claim they're on our side but who are anything but...are NOT now nor must they be on November's ballot. Remember when you vote on November 4th that God is NOT on the ballot...turning America into an Evangelical theocracy that is so wanted by some, and I only say some, is NOT on November's ballot...abortion is NOT on November's ballot nor is the 'so-called' gay agenda. Putting these things and other so-called social issues on November's ballot will NOT turn the Senate RED...will NOT start to turn America to the right...will NOT bring us back to the law of the Constitution as our Founders intended, but instead will divide us even more and help to keep the Senate BLUE. 

And a BLUE Senate will be the death knoll for America as our Constitutional Republic will most assuredly fall by the wayside to be replaced by the socialistic policies and islamic politics of the man known as Barack HUSSEIN Obama...the enemy within that some 'supposedly' on our side will have willingly allowed NOT to be stopped.

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Contests for governor of Florida have recently gone from being competitive tussles between in-state partisans to no-holds-barred death matches with big national bucks flowing and network reporters presiding over televised debates. This year's battle between incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Republican turned Democrat challenger Charlie Crist has become the over-the-top crowned jewel of everything bad about modern day "national" politics.
The real genesis of this "nationalization" of Florida politics can be found in the 2000 presidential electoral deadlock that held the nation spellbound for months. Many Americans who are otherwise apolitical still refer to "hanging chads" as if they were old grizzled political pundits.

Nothing was ever quite the same after that epic battle for Florida's electoral votes. National media reported on Jeb Bush's reelection race for governor in 2002 against a hapless and weak Democratic nominee as if it were the Kennedy-Nixon contest of 1960. Floridians became used to big national political media figures participating in their statewide debates.

The large but oft ignored state that produced the likes of "Walkin' Lawton" Chiles and slogans like "Hey Buddy (MacKay), you're liberal" graduated from just normal intrastate politics to the bigtime of national nastiness.

And nothing can compare to this high dollar, high octane and super vicious race between Scott and Crist.

What troubles many who have followed Florida politics for years is the unspoken belief that neither of these two candidates seems to have anywhere close to meaningful and altruistic reasons for seeking another term as governor.

For better or worse there is little doubt to most that if the dictionary had a definition of "Professional Politician," former Gov. Crist's picture would be right by its side.

Some believe Crist sees himself as the character "Mr. Cellophane" in the hit Broadway musical turned movie "Chicago." He seemingly thinks that he can glide in and out of rooms, meetings, debates or even various political parties without anyone taking notice of him. Sort of a Caspar the Ghost with a tan.

Scott -- with his long neck, gleaming head and wide and sometimes bulging eyes -- seems a character straight out of central casting as well. Sort of a mix between a leaner version of the animated commercial character "Mr. Clean" and the late-comedian Rodney Dangerfield who always claimed to get "no respect."

Both are harmless characters in a very hurtful and vicious contest.

Some believe Crist wants the job because he knows no other profession than politics and, as most insiders also know, he loves to be loved.

Scott appears to some as having made so much money so early in life that he chose a new "hobby," that of being governor of Florida.

Florida's position of governor, while powerful, doesn't wield anywhere near the omnipotent attributes of the same position in some other states. For example, Florida governors have to deal with a voting cabinet which could become a real problem if its makeup were to be split between Republicans and Democrats.

Plenty of voters are wondering why these two would spend megabucks and do everything but mud wrestle just to enjoy four more years in Tallahassee. Their vicious ads and personal attacks during debates have made both men appear desperate for power and oblivious to the public's disdain for their tactics or for politicians in general.

While both men are nice people when away from the political limelight, both are just too overwhelmed -- indeed, consumed -- by politics for their own good. Indeed, they reek of it.

Crist takes many of his cues from a collection of trial lawyers who have the political acumen of rank amateurs. Scott follows the lead of the usual GOP suspects. The type that might advise the boneheaded choice of protesting some silly electrical fan behind an opponent's debate podium by keeping their candidate off the stage while others waited.

The real winner in this national debacle may be Libertarian Adrian Wyllie. While he won't be close, don't be shocked if he doesn't exceed expectations. After all, Scott and Crist have lowered those expectations substantially.

The official autopsy is in and it suggests that the gunshot wound to Michael Brown’s hand indicates that he was reaching for police officer Darren Wilson’s firearm during an altercation, which ended in with his death last summer. The event sparked mass unrest in Ferguson, Missouri and a discussion about race relations in America.

Moreover, the autopsy’s results come into conflict with eyewitness reports, which said that Brown was shot while running away from Officer Wilson (via St. Louis Dispatch) [emphasis mine]:
The St. Louis medical examiner, Dr. Michael Graham, who is not part of the official investigation, reviewed the autopsy report for the newspaper. He said Tuesday that it “does support that there was a significant altercation at the car.
Graham said the examination indicated a shot traveled from the tip of Brown’s right thumb toward his wrist. The official report notes an absence of stippling, powder burns around a wound that indicate a shot fired at relatively short range.
But Graham said, “Sometimes when it’s really close, such as within an inch or so, there is no stipple, just smoke.
The report on a supplemental microscopic exam of tissue from the thumb wound showed foreign matter “consistent with products that are discharged from the barrel of a firearm.”
Dr. Judy Melinek, a forensic pathologist in San Francisco, said the autopsy “supports the fact that this guy is reaching for the gun, if he has gunpowder particulate material in the wound.” she added.
Sources told the Post-Dispatch that Brown’s blood had been found on Wilson’s gun.
Melinek also said the autopsy did not support witnesses who have claimed Brown was shot while running away from Wilson, or with his hands up.
She said Brown was facing Wilson when Brown took a shot to the forehead, two shots to the chest and a shot to the upper right arm. The wound to the top of Brown’s head would indicate he was falling forward or in a lunging position toward the shooter; the shot was instantly fatal.
A sixth shot that hit the forearm traveled from the back of the arm to the inner arm, which means Brown’s palms could not have been facing Wilson, as some witnesses have said, Melinek said. That trajectory shows Brown probably was not taking a standard surrender position with arms above the shoulders and palms out when he was hit, she said.

Ottawa gunman is convert to Islam

/ Jihad Watch
Yet another convert to Islam misunderstands his new religion and gets the crazy idea that it has something to do with violence against unbelievers. If only Barack Obama or John Kerry had been around to set him straight.

“Canadian Michael Zehaf-Bibeau thought to be the gunman in Ottawa shooting,” Sydney Morning Herald, October 23, 2014:
The man behind the Ottawa shootings is a Canadian convert to Islam whose passport had been seized by authorities, federal sources say.
While police have not confirmed the man’s identity, sources have told Canada’s Globe And Mail, Reuters and Associated Press that the main suspect was Michael Zehaf-Bibeau. 
Just before 10am on Wednesday local time (1am AEDT Thursday), a gunman shot and killed Corporal Nathan Cirillo and then opened fire on the country’s Parliament buildings.
Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers, a former member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, shot the suspect dead.
The suspected gunman, Zehaf-Bibeau, 23, was reportedly born Michael Joseph Hall but changed his name, sources said.
The Globe and Mail newspaper said he was recently designated a “high-risk traveller” by the Canadian government – meaning it was feared he would travel abroad to commit crimes – and that his passport had been seized.
Zehaf-Bibeau had a history of drug use and had multiple run-ins with Canadian police in the French-speaking province of Quebec.
Authorities have not yet ruled out the possibility that there are other shooters still on the loose….

Another senseless death in the name of islam

Rest in Everlasting Peace Cpl. Cirillo

Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, 24, based in Hamilton, identified as the soldier who was shot and killed at the War Memorial today.

Cirillo was a reservist serving in Hamilton from the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada regiment.
