FBI Most Wanted Terrorists-30 Muslims, 2 Liberals, 0 Right Wing Patriots

 fbis-most-wanted

There has been a lot in the news the last two days about Joanne Deborah Chesimard who is the first woman ever placed on the “FBI Most Wanted Terrorists” list. Joanne’s connections with the Weather Underground and Obama mentor Bill Ayers have been much publicized. Rather than beat that story into the ground I thought I would take a moment to make a point that fails to be made often enough.

With all the constant rhetoric about the dangers of the American Patriot and right-wing-Christian terrorists, the facts still remain. The current list of “FBI Most Wanted Terrorists” contains 32 people. 30 of those people are Muslims and two are left-wing liberals. In addition to Chesimard, Daniel Andreas San Diego is the other non-Muslim on the list.

“You should have seen what (Clinton) tried to do to us that night”

 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton listens to a question after the Libya Conference at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in London

Benghazi whistleblower Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine and now the deputy coordinator for operations in the State Department’s counterterrorism bureau, is expected to level the allegation that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a key aide effectively tried to cut his department out of the chain of reporting and decision-making. His testimony is set to begin on Wednesday before Chairman Darrell Issa’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
But there’s another official Fox News is reporting on.
Fox News has also learned that another official from the counterterrorism bureau — independently of Thompson — voiced the same complaint about Clinton and Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy to trusted national security colleagues back in October.

Thompson considers himself a whistle-blower whose account was suppressed by the official investigative panel that Clinton convened to review the episode, the Accountability Review Board (ARB). Thompson’s lawyer, Joseph diGenova, a former U.S. attorney, has further alleged that his client has been subjected to threats and intimidation by as-yet-unnamed superiors at State, in advance of his cooperation with Congress.

The submarine in a 'vegetable patch': Code in letters sent home by British PoW in WWII to help Allies is revealed after 70 years

Via Ol' Remus

 Decoded: Letters sent by war hero John Pryor contained messages for the Allies, and these have now been deciphered for the first time


  • 'My Dear Mummy': Even start of Sub Lt John Pryor's letters signalled cod
  • Pryor was captured at Dunkirk in 1940
  • Mathematicians and military intelligence experts crack MI9 code
  • Coded words alternated between every fourth and fifth word and also involved fiendish alphanumeric key
  • Contained hidden requests for maps, passports and currency as well as war intelligence   
  •  
  • The letters sent back home by Sub-Lieutenant John Pryor from a German prison camp seemed innocent enough.

    They often started with 'My Dear Mummy & Daddy' and talked about mundane things such as gardening and a 'vegetable patch'.

    But the British wartime letters actually contained hidden messages, which have only now been deciphered by academics. 

    It is also the first time the captured serviceman's family has been able to understand the secret messages. 

    Sub Lt Pryor was captured at Dunkirk in 1940 and sent to a prisoner of war camp.
    He was held for the next five years but as a reward for good behaviour, he was allowed to send letters home to his parents in Saltash, Cornwall.

    Those letters contained secret messages for the British military - and involved a fiendishly complex alphanumeric code.

    In one letter, he hid intelligence about the sinking of a British submarine by writing about the PoW camp's vegetable garden.

    He wrote: 'Many seeds are left, being saved from several plants which did very well some time ago.
     
    'Our last year's harvest was extremely good. Well worth repeating again for this year.'
    But it meant: 'HMS Undine attack failure. Trawler depth-charged, scuttled in 70 feet, three burnt.'

    From this, experts were able to deduce a coded message about the sinking of the British submarine, the HMS Undine, which was destroyed in 1940.

    Scroll down for complete breakdown of how the code was cracked.

    NC: Military Style Raid Leads To Homes Being Leveled In 24 Hours

    Via The Drawn Cutlass

     

     Not far from the shadows of Charlotte's Uptown towers, a group of more than 50 heavily armed men swarmed a cluster of three small homes on North Pine Street late Friday afternoon.

    By one witness account, a number of dark colored vans and black SUV's closed in on the homes from several different direction. Within seconds dozens of men wearing olive drab jumpsuits with no visible identification stormed into the three homes in a simultaneous attack.

    Witnesses reported hearing automatic gun fire and loud explosions often associated with "flash bang" grenades.
    
     During the raid the area was blocked off by unmarked police cars and the para-military style operation was over in less than an hour. At no time were any CMPD marked units visible, nor was Charlotte Fire or Medic involved.

    TESTIMONY OF JEFFERSON DAVIS, GENERAL R. E. LEE,
    ALEXANDER HAMILTON STEPHENS,
    HON. ROBERT OULD,  CONFEDERATE COMMISSIONER OF EXCHANGE, AND MANY MORE
     
            There is, perhaps, no subject connected with the late war which more imperatively demands discussion at our hands than the Prison Question. That the Confederate Government should have been charged in the heat of the passions of the war with a systematic cruelty to prisoners was to be expected. The pulpits, the press and the Government reports, which were so busy denouncing "Rebel barbarities" that they had no censure for the McNeils, the Turchins, the Butlers, the Milroys, the Hunters, the Shermans, and the Sheridans, who, under the flag of "Liberty," perpetrated crimes which disgrace the age, were not to be expected to be over scrupulous in originating and retailing slanders against the Government and people of the South. But it was hoped that after the passions of the war had cooled, and the real facts had become accessible, that these sweeping charges would be at least modified, and these bitter denunciations cease.

            We have been doomed to a sad disappointment. The leader of the Radical party (Mr. Blaine) has recently in his place in the United States Congress revived all of the charges which twelve years ago "fired the Northern heart," and has marred the music of the "Centennial chimes," with such language as this:

            "Mr. Davis was the author, knowingly, deliberately, guiltily and wilfully, of the gigantic murder and crime at Andersonville. And I here, before God, measuring my words, knowing their full extent and import, declare that neither the deeds of the Duke of Alva in the Low countries nor the massacre of Saint Bartholomew, nor the thumb screws and engines of torture of the Spanish Inquisition begin to compare in atrocity with the hideous crimes of Andersonville."

            He then quotes and endorses the following extract from the report of the ex parte committee of Congress who examined this question at a time when passion was at its flood tide:

            "The subsequent history of Andersonville has startled and shocked the world with a tale of horror, of woe and death before unheard and unknown to civilization. No pen can describe, no painter sketch, no imagination comprehend its fearful and unutterable iniquity. It would seem as if the concentrated madness of earth and hell had found its final lodgment in the breasts of those who inaugurated the rebellion and controlled the policy of the Confederate Government, and that the prison at Andersonville had been selected for the most terrible human sacrifice which the world had ever seen. Into its narrow walls were crowded thirty five thousand enlisted men, many of them the bravest and best, the most devoted and heroic of those grand armies which carried the flag of their country to final victory. For long and weary months here they suffered, maddened, were murdered, and died. Here they lingered, unsheltered from the burning rays of a tropical sun by day, and drenching and deadly dews by night, in every stage of mental and physical disease, hungered, emaciated, starving maddened; festering with unhealed wounds; gnawed by the ravages of scurvy and gangrene; with swollen limb and distorted visage; covered with vermin which they had no power to extirpate; exposed to the flooding rains which drove them drowning from the miserable holes in which, like swine, they burrowed; parched with thirst and mad with hunger; racked with pain or prostrated with the weakness of dissolution; with naked limbs and matted hair, filthy with smoke and mud; soiled with the very excrement from which their weakness would not permit them to escape; eaten by the gnawing worms which their own wounds had engendered; with no bed but the earth; no covering save the cloud or the sky; these men, these heroes, born in the image of God, thus crouching and writhing in their terrible torture and calculating barbarity, stand forth in history as a monument of the surpassing horrors of Andersonville as it shall be seen and read in all future time, realizing in the studied torments of their prison house the ideal of Dante's Inferno and Milton's Hell."

            So industriously have these statements been circulated -- so generally have they entered into the literature of the North -- so widely have they been believed, that the distinguished gentleman from Georgia (Hon. B.H. Hill), who ventured upon a calm reply, in which he ably refuted the assertions of Mr. Blaine, has been denounced by the Radical press as a "co- conspirator with Jeff. Davis to murder Union prisoners," and has been told by even some of our own papers that his speech was "very unfortunate" As we have in the archives of our Society the means of triumphantly vindicating the Confederate Government from the charge of cruelty to prisoners, as we have been appealed to by leading men North and South and in Europe to give the facts in reference to this matter, and as the present seems an opportune time, we have decided to enter upon the task.

            We have only to premise that our work is mainly one of the compilation, and that our chief difficulty is which documents to select from the vast number which we have in our collection.

    William Ayers says Weather Underground, Boston bombings not same

     http://www.theblaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/bill_ayers-636_ap-620x243.gif

    Should be six feet under.

    Bill Ayers, the 1960s radical who went on to become a college professor and associate of President Obama, said Saturday the bombings he helped the Weather Underground carry out to protest the Vietnam War bear no resemblance to the deadly Boston Marathon attack - and glossed over the fact that his group's bombs killed three fellow terrorists and have been linked to the murder of a San Francisco police officer.

    “How different is the shooting in Connecticut from shooting at a hunting range?” Ayers told a reporter who asked him to compare the incidents after Ayers spoke at a commemoration of the 1970 incident at Kent State University, where Ohio National Guard members killed four students during a protest. “Just because they use the same thing, there’s no relationship at all.”

    Ayers went on to accuse Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who spent five years in a POW camp, of murdering civilians in the war, lament the deaths of two fellow Weather Underground members – skipping over the fact that they blew themselves up while trying to make bombs – and painted his actions as a heroic bid to end U.S. involvement in Vietnam. Ayers was the keynote speaker at the event, which drew an estimated 350 people on the university’s Commons, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. But it was after Ayers made his prepared remarks that he bristled over a possible comparison of terrorist acts separated by more than four decades.

    Army Set to Kill Improved Carbine Competition

    Via mpopenker

     An Army soldier fires the M-4 carbine.

     The US Army plans to cancel its Improved Carbine competition before conducting the final, soldier-evaluation portion of this multi-year effort to replace the M4 carbine.
     
    Program officials are in the process of reprogramming the $ 49.6 million requested in the proposed fiscal 2014 budget to buy 30,000 improved carbines, according to a source familiar with the effort.
    Army weapons officials recently completed Phase II of the competition where testers fired hundreds of thousands of rounds through carbines submitted by gun makers such as Heckler & Koch, FNH-USA, Remington Defense, Adcor Defense Inc. and Colt Defense LLC, the original maker of the M4 carbine.

    The service's original plan was to award three contracts to three gun makers for the final phase of the competition, which would involve soldiers firing nearly 800,000 rounds in three separate user evaluations before choosing a winning carbine.

    Amnesty Will Cost $6.3 Trillion


    http://mobile.wnd.com/files/2013/05/Amnesty11.png

    Mike Scruggs

    The Heritage Foundation has just released its cost estimate for the Amnesty portion only of the Schumer-Rubio or "Gang-of-Eight" U.S. Senate  "comprehensive immigration  reform" bill, S.447.  The Heritage report's author, Robert Rector, believes $6.3 Trillion is a conservative minimal estimate.

    Adding $6.3 Trillion to an already dangerous $16.5 Trillion debt is reason enough for public alarm or for any sane member of Congress to vote against it. However, the Schumer-Rubio Senate bill contains far more special interest goodies than amnesty, as disastrous as amnesty for 11 million illegal immigrants would be.

    The Senate bill also contains recommendations for massive new legal immigration and temporary guest-worker authorizations. Permanent legal immigration would be authorized to increase from 1.1 million to 2.6 million annually.  The pre-1986 amnesty years averaged 300 to 500 thousand. Guest-worker authorizations could increase from the present level of just over 900,000 to 2.7 to 3.0 million. Because the 1965 Immigration Reform Act, with its extended family priorities, will continue to be in effect, most of these could be expected to be low-skilled and to have similar public cost liabilities to Rector's per person estimate for amnestied illegal immigrants.

    In addition, Rector's estimate does not anticipate the huge multiplier effect of past amnesties, although law enforcement is likely to be even more negligible, and for show only, as long as Barack Obama or a like-minded liberal Democrat or liberal Republican holds the office of U.S. President.

    NumbersUSA recently estimated that 33 million more foreign workers will be coming to the U.S. in the next 10 years, if Schumer-Rubio is passed. This includes not only the amnestied immigrants but the usual train of relatives and millions more likely to take advantage of what amounts to a surrender to open-door immigration policies. Thus the Heritage Foundation's estimate excludes a multiplier effect that brought two to three more illegal immigrants for every past amnesty.

    Hence the Heritage Foundation's $6.3 Trillion cost estimate may be far short of the total cost of the near open-door immigration policies proposed by Schumer-Rubio.

    The total fiscal and economic cost of Schumer-Rubio is beyond estimation and imagination. It is a totally insane and irresponsible national suicide bill. Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Qaeda terrorist leaders
    would be hard pressed to come up with a more destructive plan for America.

    With over 21 million Americans wanting a full-time job and unable to find one, flooding the job market with amnestied illegals, millions of their relatives, and millions of new guest-workers seems like a plan straight from a madhouse or the command post of hell.

    Details of the $6.3 Trillion amnesty cost can be found on the Heritage Foundation website.

     Jobs Americans Won’t Do?

    Mike Scruggs

         A common excuse for being tolerant of illegal immigration is: “They’re just doing jobs Americans won’t do.”  This opinion is only held by a minority of American voters, but it a common claim of those who use and profit from cheap foreign labor, both illegal and legal. However, studies of the national employment situation show no credible evidence that there is much truth to this claim. The evidence is very strong, moreover, that importation of cheap foreign labor, whether illegal or legalized guestworkers displaces American workers and depresses their wages. 

         On the other hand, there are many local instances where employers become frustrated trying to hire employees to do work that requires strenuous or monotonous labor or some undesirable working conditions. Since these jobs often require little education and low-skill levels, low pay and few benefits are frequently a factor. But there is also another factor called “stigmatization,” noted in the Jordan Commission study of immigration in its 1997 report to Congress. Once a local company or industry fills up a job category with lower paid foreign workers, the occupation becomes “stigmatized.” The natives are reluctant to take these jobs because they feel the respective occupation is for poorly educated and unskilled foreigners and has no promise of economic betterment. Both a loss of social self-worth and poor economic promise are factors.

    Furthermore, the natives may feel the employers only want foreign labor and will not seriously consider anyone else. This situation breeds cheap foreign labor dependence.

         As many American labor economists have pointed out, however, there are no jobs where the market is strictly local. Only national or at least regional economic labor markets reflect a true measure of the interaction between supply and demand with wage levels.  

        In any legitimate economic analysis, one fundamental law of free markets must be kept in mind. Excess supply causes prices or wages to fall, and shortages cause prices and wages to rise.

         When we see employers, business associations, and politicians claiming there is a labor shortage and that more foreign labor must be imported, yet wage rates are stagnant or declining, we had better dust off our Baloney Meter. Sadly, this is just what we have in the Gang-of-Eight Amnesty and stupendous guest-worker expansion plan known as Schumer-Rubio or Senate bill S.477. Republican Senators Marco Rubio and John McCain are claiming S.477 is justified by a labor shortage—absolute nonsense! The real wages of American workers have been stagnant for 15 years, and 21 million Americans who want a full time job cannot find one.  NumbersUSA recently projected that S.477 will bring in 33 million more immigrant laborers over the next ten years. Contemplate what impact that will have on the welfare of American workers and their families! 

         A study by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the years 2009 through 2011 found that only six of 497 occupations or occupational categories were majority immigrant (legal and illegal). These were: (1) Graders and sorters of agricultural products, 63 percent immigrant; (2) Personal appearance workers (doing fingernails, toenails, etc), 59 percent; (3) Plasterers and stucco masons, 56 percent; (4) Sewing machine operators, 52 percent; (5) Miscellaneous agricultural workers (the largest category), 52 percent; and (6) Tailors, dressmakers, and sewers, at 52 percent. Note that in all six occupations, there are plenty of Americans still doing the work—in geographic areas where they have not been driven out by increasing importation of illegal immigrants and guestworkers. 

         Those who want to see the details of this study can consult the May 2013 Backgrounder published by the Center for Immigration Studies (cis.org). The statistics also show the native unemployment for each occupation. All have above average native unemployment, particularly agricultural sorters with 28 percent, plasterers and stucco masons with 27 percent, and sewing machine operators and miscellaneous agricultural workers each with 16 percent. Hence there is no such thing as a job Americans won’t do. This can have differing local manifestations, but the national truth is that the often-repeated phrase, “jobs Americans won’t do” is largely a propaganda ploy by business associations and their political allies lobbying for more cheap foreign labor. 

         Here are some other occupations with high immigrant employment related to high native unemployment, a solid indication that importing cheap foreign labor is pushing Americans out of jobs: Drywall and ceiling tile installers, 47 percent immigrant labor and 29 percent native unemployment; Roofers, 40 percent immigrant employment and 25 percent native unemployment; Painters, 40 percent immigrant employment and 23 percent native unemployment; Brick, block, and stone masons with 34 percent immigrant employment and 28 percent native unemployment; and Concrete and cement masons and finishers with 32 percent immigrant employment and 30 percent native unemployment. Note that excess immigrant labor is increasingly driving Americans out of higher-skilled jobs and with them small business owners trying to compete with cheap foreign labor.

         What is going on here?  We have seen from the studies of Harvard Labor Economist George Borjas that excess foreign labor is costing American workers $402 billion or $2800 per worker per year, but profiting the users of imported foreign labor $437 billion per year. The proponents of cheap foreign labor are spending $300 million per year to lobby Congress. These lobbyists frequently point out that foreign workers contribute $1.6 trillion to the GNP. The problem with this accounting is that almost all of that goes to the foreign workers, and the net $35 billion national gain is overcome by much larger fiscal costs, which are somewhere between $84 to $110 billion per year for illegal labor alone. The bottom line here is that foreign workers are profiting, and those who are using them are profiting handsomely, but American workers and taxpayers are getting the economic and political shaft. Yet public and media blindness to this unfair and unpatriotic political evil is astonishing. 

         Schumer-Rubio is outrageous special interest legislation that will devastate American workers and taxpayers and guarantee left-liberal Democrat political dominance forever.
