Sabotaging the Miserable House of the U.S. Military by Their Hands

The following article was published earlier today by the Center for Security Policy. The treatment of Raymond Ibrahim by the Army War College is a reminder of why Major Stephen Coughlin was so abruptly terminated as a consultant for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Agents of the Muslim Brotherhood have been inserted in strategic positions at all levels of federal, state, and local government. This obviously includes the Pentagon:

Army War College Sides with CAIR

by Christopher Holton
June 14, 2019

Raymond Ibrahim is one of the most esteemed and intrepid experts on the threat from Islamic jihad and sharia.

He has written extensively on the subject matter and his work is simply beyond reproach.

In 2007 Ibrahim wrote The Al Qaeda Reader in which he translated the written and spoken words of Osama Bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and other Al Qaeda leaders. The Al Qaeda Reader is an indispensible window into the world of Islamic jihad.

Last year, Ibrahim came out with his excellent Sword and Scimitar,which details 14 centuries of conflict between the Islamic world and the West.

In addition to his prolific writing in books and columns, Ibrahim is a sought-after speaker.

Recently, the US Army War College invited him to speak.

And that is where the trouble began. In the end it shows an Army War College that has been penetrated by enemy influence operations.

When the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) got word that Ibrahim was slated to speak at the War College, their propaganda and character assassination mechanism shifted into high gear. CAIR contacted the War College and urged them to rescind Ibrahim’s invitation.

Unfortunately, the War College bowed to CAIR’s wishes and “postponed” Ibrahim’s appearance.

Had this been a civilian college or university that caved to CAIR, it could be chalked up to political correctness gone wild.

The Sad Reality of Memorial Day 2019

It’s back to work tomorrow after a weekend of Remembering with cook-outs and family gatherings.

As the wrappings around the treacheries of World War II begin to rot and drop away, the emerging truths are difficult for the average person to comprehend, much less metabolize. When you know our government policy was to leave behind living, breathing men from three generations to the mercies of Communist butchers, it is hard to memorialize what remains. Or perhaps it is easier to turn away from the despair…

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

Yesterday, the nationwide group, Rolling Thunder, remembered kinetically these MIAs and POWs -more than 85,000 souls – still honoring them on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. This year was to have been the last ride through Washington because of the expense and red tape, but President Trump and some anonymous donors have stepped in to say they will facilitate the run in 2020.

I have mirrored Diana West’s account of these losses; the cynical and barbaric disappearance of our young, then-living American POWs who were disappeared by Communists is truly tragic. And make no mistake: it has indeed been Communism that is responsible for this bleeding loss. As she says in her post,

Ever since I delved into the darkest corners of our past and came up with American Betrayal, this season of national holidays and observances, including VE-Day on May 8 (but really May 7), Memorial Day, D-Day, for my own family, the day in July my dad was wounded at the Battle of St Lo, and the anniversary of Hiroshima on August 15, has become an unnerving time of year. That’s because this annual procession of national holidays and observances serves to bury in red, white and blue bunting the amalgam of Big Lies — “court history,” error and disinformation — which Americans are instructed to hold to be as sacred as truth. As the late M. Stanton Evans put it here, all of that Establishment-history or consensus-history is “pretty much bogus.”

It is this bogus history that hides a cascade of lies and treachery, including communist and Soviet influence inside our highest government circles and even war councils, all of which becomes difficult for the American patriot to fathom, when the conditioned behavior is to look the other way at Old Glory passing by and salute.

Thanks to Stefan Molyneux, I had the opportunity to discuss what is the greatest American betrayal of all, the betrayal of our own fighting men, our POWs/MIAs who never came home because they were abandoned by the US government in successive wars and proxy wars against Moscow and Beijing. This includes the story of the American GIs in POW camps who, as Nazi Germany crumbled, came under Soviet control … forever.

The US government continues to pretend these American sons never existed, but, of all days, We, the People, should remember them on Memorial Day.

Here’s her eloquent dialogue with Stephan Molyneux:

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

She doesn’t mention the sudden death of General Patton, that staunch anti-Communist who was a driving force in the attempt to rescue the World War II Allied POWs held in Germany; I doubt he had any illusions as to their fate if the Russians got there first. But he died suddenly in a motor accident, and the Russians did get there first.

As Diana mentions, this also happened to the doughboys being held in World War I [welcome to the 20th century]. Yes, it really does go that far back. Our government can be forgiven its ignorance about Soviet Russia and world Communism at that point, but not in later wars.

Here’s her latest book, The Red Thread: A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy. Only a hundred pages long, or you can get the audio or Kindle version. I read the e-book and recommend it for her detailed discoveries about the ways Communism still infects our body politic at the highest levels.

Meanwhile, read her earlier post, from Friday, in which she delineates Roosevelt’s betrayal, leaving thousands of G.I.s to be disappeared into Stalin’s gulag. The photo is a stunner.

The Chinese Threat Is Existential

It was bound to come to this. As usual, Washington’s administrative state has been diverting attention from the real problem by entertaining themselves with adolescent scary stories about Russia’s interference in our elections. As if…

This is a hot mess and it could become a radioactive hot mess in the not-too-distant future. Global warming is looming?? No, China is looming and looming large. Steve Bannon lays out the problem, a greater threat than the Soviet Union ever was, and we are much weakened by our elites who would sell us out for their own bottom lines:

The Center for Security Policy is sponsoring the ‘Committee on the Present Danger: China’ (CPDC). Its name harkens back to Soviet Russia and the now-dead Cold War.

From Bill Gertz at The Free Beacon:

China under Communist Party rule poses an existential threat and must be countered with stronger defense, economic, and political measures, according to a new committee of experts.

Former government, military, and intelligence leaders joined by business leaders and human rights advocates warned during an inaugural press briefing that Communist China poses the most dangerous threat to the United States and the world.

Creation of the Committee on the Present Danger-China follows three earlier iterations of the storied organization that played influential roles in American national security policy beginning in the 1950s and throughout the Cold War and after.

The panel includes a blue-ribbon roster of 43 experts including former CIA Director R. James Woolsey, former Education Secretary William Bennett, former Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence ret. Lt. Gen. Gerald Boykin, and former Rep. Frank Wolf (R., Va.).

Other notable figures include University of Pennsylvania China specialist Arthur Waldron, strategic missile defense expert Henry Cooper, Chinese Christian activist Bob Fu, former Voice of America China broadcaster Sasha Gong, and retired Navy Capt. James Fanell, former intelligence director for the Pacific Fleet.

One of the first actions by the committee was to issue a warning on the anticipated U.S.-China trade deal that is said to be close to being completed.

“The trade deal the Trump administration is now negotiating with China is expected to address its Communist Party’s longstanding practice of stealing American intellectual property—the life-blood of our information-based economy and a key component of our national security,” the statement said.

“It remains to be seen whether any new commitments from the Chinese to end this practice will be honored since past ones have not.”

Frank Gaffney, vice chairman of the Committee, said even if a trade deal is reached and China honors its commitments, “we are still facing a world of hurt at their hands.”

“We must address these other dimensions of the problem that ultimately emanate from the character of the communist regime, mainly that it is ruled, brutally, in a totalitarian fashion, by the Chinese Communist Party,” Gaffney said.

Committee chairman Brian Kennedy said the independent, non-partisan group will seek to educate and inform the American public and government policymakers regarding the threat from China ruled by the Communist Party of China.

The threat includes a large-scale military buildup, active information and political warfare that targets the American people, business, political, and media elites, and Beijing’s aggressive cyber and economic warfare.

“The Committee takes no ideological point of view, rather it relies on the facts as reasonable people can understand them,” Kennedy said. “Armed with these facts, the Committee believes the common sense of the American people will demand from their elected officials that all reasonable measures be taken to defend the United States, our economic interests, and the security of the American people.”

Woolsey, former CIA director in the administration of Bill Clinton, said China is seeking to defeat the United States according to the dictums of the ancient Chinese strategist Sun Tzu—without having to engage in a major conflict.

“We have to be able to turn away Chinese domination of our Internet,” Woolsey said, noting efforts by China’s Huawei Technologies and other firms to control the emerging 5G telecommunications technology.

Boykin, undersecretary of defense for intelligence in the George W. Bush administration, said the Chinese intelligence threat has increased rapidly and through cyber attacks stolen or reverse-engineered large amounts of advanced American technology.

The Chinese strategy against the United States was outlined in a 1999 book by two People’s Liberation Army colonels called Unrestricted Warfare. The book called for using all forms of warfare—military, diplomatic, economic, financial, and even terrorism—to win wars.

The book “laid out the absolute road-map for how they intended to take over America, and they are in the process of doing everything they said they wanted to do in that treatise,” Boykin said.

Boykin said a counterintelligence briefing he received at the Pentagon revealed Chinese intelligence agencies had planted spies throughout the United States.

As I’ve suggested in the past, learn Mandarin. Or teach it to your children. They may need it to survive in the future.

A Day in the Life of Sderot, Parts 4-6

Below are the next three videos from MC’s series on life in the southern Israeli city of Sderot (parts 1-3 are here). In these installments you’ll see the site where a rocket landed in the middle of a street, a high school that had to be shut down after being hit by a Palestinian rocket, and a memorial for people killed in Hamas’ attacks before Iron Dome was brought in to protect the city.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for editing and uploading these videos.

A Day in the Life of Sderot, Parts 1-3

Our Israeli correspondent MC has recorded a series of videos in his hometown of Sderot. All of the footage was taken since yesterday’s rocket attacks from Gaza began. Below are the first three videos; from what Vlad tells me, there are at least two more to come.

In these three installments you’ll see, among other things, a middle school protected by a special armored superstructure to keep students safe from rocket attacks. You’ll see a playground where the brightly-painted play structures — such as a huge caterpillar that children can run through — are made of reinforced concrete so they can double as bomb shelters. And you’ll see the launchers for Iron Dome interceptors, which are able to stop most of Hamas’ rockets before they hit the ground.

This is daily life in Sderot.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for editing and uploading this videos.

Viktor Orbán: Demography Is Against Us; Europe Must Act NOW Against Migration

In Budapest last Friday Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán hosted the Mathias Corvinus Collegium (MCC) Summit on Migration. The conference was in English, but after the speakers finished their presentations, Mr. Orbán gave his summary in Hungarian, for the sake of the representatives of Hungarian media.

If Hungary had a population of fifty or sixty million, rather than ten million, Mr. Orbán would be a renowned figure of international standing. His face would appear every night on the TV news, and his name would be in the headlines every day in the papers.

His genial, avuncular style makes his videos a pleasure to watch. I’ve never seen any other intellectual of his stature rise so high in politics. God bless him, and may Fidesz win another two-thirds majority next election.

Hungarian National Song

On your feet now, Hungary calls you!
Now is the moment, nothing stalls you,
Shall we be slaves or men set free
That is the question, answer me!
By the God of Magyars
We hereby swear,
That we the yoke of slavery
No more shall wear.

Slaves we have been to this hour,
Our forefathers who fell from power
Fell free and lived as free men will,
On land that was their own to till,
By the God of Magyars
We hereby swear,
That we the yoke of slavery
No more shall wear.

Whoever now his life begrudges
Deserves his death with thieves and drudges,
For setting his own worthless hide
Above his country’s need and pride.
By the God of Magyars
We hereby swear,
That we the yoke of slavery
No more shall wear.

The sword shines brighter than the fetters
It is the finery of our betters,
Of slaves and fetters we grow bored.
Leap to my side, ancestral sword.
By the God of Magyars
We hereby swear,
That we the yoke of slavery
No more shall wear.

Magyars, once more our name and story
Shall match our ancestors’ in glory
The centuries of shame and hurt
Can now be washed away like dirt.
By the God of Magyars
We hereby swear,
That we the yoke of slavery
No more shall wear.

And wheresoever we may perish
Grandchildren those graves shall cherish
Singing our praises in their prayers
To thank us that our names are theirs.
By the God of Magyars
We hereby swear,
That we the yoke of slavery
No more shall wear.

— Sándor Petőfi, March 15, 1848.

French Legislator Recommends the Targeted Assassination of “French” Jihadis Before They Return From Syria

Pierre-Henri Dumont is a deputy in the French National Assembly for Les Républicains (formerly UMP), the party of former presidents Jacques Chirac and Nicolas Sarkozy.

In the following television talk show appearance, Mr. Dumont makes the case for the targeted assassination abroad of “French” mujahideen, rather than letting them return to France. The death penalty has been abolished in France, and the longest stretch a criminal can do in prison is twenty years. Mr. Dumont is in favor of solving the problem by killing the jihadis before they can return to France, but the horrified female moderators are steadfastly opposed to the idea.

The Non-NeoCon Philosophy

Senator Rand Paul addresses the controversy surrounding Trump’s decision to pull out of Syria —

This is passing strange: an MSM mouthpiece seems to be making the case for keeping our military deployed in futile battles far from home. What happened to the long-held leftist “no-blood-for-oil” arguments and their mockery of the neo-Conservatives’ philosophy regarding the maintenance of American troops across the globe?

The Birds Fly Over Sderot

Hamas is currently at war with Israel, launching missiles and incendiary kites on a daily basis into southern Israel. The news about the attacks only makes it onto the world’s TV screens if one of the puir wee bairns among the Palestinians gets killed — usually because the child’s school or crèche is used to store missiles or arms, making it into a target for the IDF.

Our Israeli correspondent MC sends this report on the situation, literally from his own front yard.

The birds fly over Sderot

by MC

It was a rough night. It started at 10pm and finished at 10am after some twenty missiles were launched in five attacks.

The small arms shooting is still going on as I sit here (8:20pm).

These are photos from about a minute after multiple Iron Dome intercepts occurred right overhead. The photos were taken from the front garden!

This is where the ‘humanitarian’ aid to Gaza ends up. That is your tax money up there burning up.

Islam is incorrigibly malicious. Its doctrines are the doctrines of evangelism by violence and coercion. It seeks to conquer and forcibly convert, and if genocide is necessary, then so be it.

Shooting missiles at random against a civilian population is acceptable in Yemen, Syria, and against Israel. And the world looks on complacently: Not my front door —Yawn!

Viktor Orbán: “We Shall Refuse the Ideology of Globalism”

Yesterday — October 23, 2018 — Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán gave a speech on the occasion of the 62nd anniversary of the 1956 uprising against Soviet occupation.

CrossWare, who translated the video for subtitles, sends this explanation for the choice of venue for the speech:

The location for Mr. Orbán’s speech was the “House of Terror”: Andrassy Street 60 was the headquarters of the Gestapo, and later that of the Communist Secret Police as well. The shift between the two socialist regimes was very smooth. They even had a changing room where the Nazis changed clothes into the uniform of the new regime. They also reused the torture and execution chambers.

John Bolton’s Policy Speech on the Eve of 9/11

John Bolton is a forceful conservative. Some discount him as a neocon, but that dismissive sobriquet fails to do justice to his principles.

He grew up in Baltimore, the son of a fireman, so Bolton learned early what an aggressive defense is and how to employ it effectively. He is the quintessential tough guy you want on your side. In other words, he is one answer to Barack Obama’s dithering lack of a genuine and robust foreign policy.

Bolton’s principled sense of justice included taking Clarence Thomas under his wing during their friendship at Yale Law School and then, later, offering advice and comfort during the ugly mess that constituted Thomas’ eventual confirmation to the Supreme Court. As Thomas said, what he endured in the bullying during his hearings was a “high tech lynching”.

Bolton’s speech came on the eve of 9/11, and that is not coincidental. America is standing up to globalists and trans-nationalist criminals like the ICC, founded in the year after 9/11. Such thugs are long overdue to be disbanded. Many of us agree with Bolton: the ICC and the UN need to go away, joining the other extra-national groups in a vast political graveyard, interred there along with The League of Nations.

Here is a list of John Bolton’s Ten Rules of Statecraft. They belong to a world neither Obama nor Clinton understands, and these rules are peculiarly American in their sentiments and form:

1.   “My philosophy is not a bean-counting, accounting ‘look at this.’ It is a philosophy that smaller government is better government, and government that is closer to the people is best of all.”
2.   “Our biggest national security crisis is Barack Obama.”
3.   “People say you favor assassination, what do you think war is? Except that it’s assassination on a much larger scale—a much more horrific scale.”
4.   “Diplomacy is not an end in itself if it does not advance U.S. interests.”
5.   “Negotiation is not a policy. It’s a technique. It’s something you use when it’s to your advantage, and something that you don’t use when it’s not to your advantage.”
6.   “My priority is to give the United States the kind of influence it should have.”
7.   “Everybody pursues their national interests. The only one who gets blamed for it is the United States.”
8.   “You could take several stories off the buildings of most U.S. government agencies and we’d all probably be better for it too.”
9.   “As somebody who writes op-eds and appears on the television, I appreciate as well as anybody that… there is a limit to what that accomplishes.”
    And the pièce de résistance:
10.   “There is no United Nations.”
 

If you would understand John Bolton’s worldview, read this brief book. You’ll grasp the sense of solidarity that is the fundament of conservatives and others on the Right. You may even understand President Trump and those who voted for him.

Meanwhile, this major policy speech is an elucidation of Trump’s ruling philosophy. To understand what Trump’s about, listen to Ambassador Bolton.

When The New York Times Was Prescient About Donald Trump

A long essay from 1984 on Donald Trump from The New York Times, no less.

There are so many possible things one could extract from the meandering piece, but on this Fourth of July the following [edited for clarity and spelling] snip seemed most appropriate:

…“The football thing is cute, Trump Tower and the piano and all of that, it’s all cute, but what does it mean?” he says, sounding what borders on a note of uncharacteristic despair.

Asked to explain, he adds: “What does it all mean when some wacko over in Syria can end the world with nuclear weapons?”

He says that his concern for [a] nuclear holocaust is not one that popped into his mind during any recent made-of-television movie. He says that it has been troubling him since his uncle, a nuclear physicist, began talking to him about it 15 years ago.

His greatest dream is to personally do something about the problem and, characteristically, Donald Trump thinks he has an answer to nuclear armament: Let him negotiate arms agreements — he who can talk people into selling $100 million properties to him for $13 million. “Negotiation is an art”, he says, “and I have a gift for it.”

The idea that he would ever be allowed to go into a room alone and negotiate for the United States, let alone be successful in disarming the world, seems the naive musing of an optimistic, deluded young man who has never lost at anything he has tried. But he believes that through years of making his views known and through supporting candidates who share his views, it could someday happen.

He is constantly asked about his interest in running for elective office. Absolutely not, he answers. All of the false smiles and the red tape. It is too difficult to really do anything.

He dislikes meetings and paperwork and is in the enviable position of being able to avoid both.

Well, it took more than thirty years before The Donald changed his mind, rolled up his sleeves, and decided it wasn’t too difficult after all. Now it’s “President Trump”, if you don’t mind… and I don’t. As he transformed New York real estate in that period, perhaps he will transform Washington politics, finally beginning the overdue change of the socialist skyline and the swamp begun under FDR. We can only hope he’ll have enough time.

Meanwhile, Trump continues to lead in crucial domestic areas: his executive orders (a practice his predecessor used to move our country leftward) have, for instance, made it easier to fire incompetent civil servants, and harder for immigrants from terrorist countries to gain entrance (not all of those countries are majority-Islam, despite what the news says).

And then there is his appointment of federal judges. You can see from the wiki that many of those appointments languish in the bowels of our legislative branch. Makes you wonder what they will do to his eventual second choice for the Supreme Court. Have no doubt: it will be brutal.

There’s a great deal to ponder in this, the 242nd year of our independence. To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin’s harried answer a woman’s inquiry at the time they were hammering out the details: “it’s a republic, madam, if you can keep it.”

Happy Fourth of July, y’all.
