I’ve heard a great deal of disbelief come from contacts of mine regarding nuclear weapons and N. Korea. If we listen to ‘the media’, it sounds like they’re just making a lot of noise with no real threat of truly hurting us here in the U.S. But it’s just a matter of how you ‘translate’ the information as to whether you believe N. Korea is a threat and to what degree.
A few years ago they were doing testing with their rockets and at least three of them blew up at around 40 miles up. The consensus was that N. Korea only produced junk and that they were not a real threat. After all, with their rockets traveling a short distance (horizontally) and blowing up only 40 miles high (too low for orbit), what damage could they do?
James Woolsey is the ex-CIA director and was on the EMP commission a few years ago. He pointed out that a 40 mile high trajectory was sufficient to do significant damage with a rocket if it had an EMP on it. That altitude would take out a large part of the U.S. electrical grid! A 100+ mile altitude EMP attack would pretty much kill all three power grids in the U.S.
A week ago N. Korea fired off a rocket and it only traveled 800 miles toward Japan, but reached an altitude of almost 300 miles! Consider for a moment that if you wanted your enemy to think of you as dumb, you could ‘lob’ a rocket high and then allow it to come down ‘short’ leaving your opponent to thinking you still don’t know how to make rockets. Although not a rocket scientist, my assumption is that the same rocket could travel a lot further with a ‘better’ trajectory. However Mr. Woolsey has spoken on this particular subject as recent as July 2017 in a CNBC interview.
One has to wonder who the dummy is at this point, especially considering that congress approved a bill to pay for the hardening of the grid over seven years ago? But have we since addressed the problem? No..? The public should wonder..?!
As a kid, I found a common game to play (especially for boys) was ‘King of the mountain’. The idea was that everyone would gather around a mound of dirt and one or two kids would get on top. The objective of the game was to knock off those on top and be the remaining person standing when the game was over. This often suggested a lot of dirty cloths and more than a few bruises.
Today our country is involved in ‘the game’ — like it or not. Today we have a capitalist society guided by a representative republic. Two forces (at least) are threatening our country’s governance. Those forces both have the same objective — to defeat America and take control of the country — they are: communism and Islamism.
The communists have been actively working on the ‘transformation’ of our country into a communist state for 100 years — with a great deal of success. We are, at this point at least, a socialist state considering the millions of people receiving government handouts. The next step is civil chaos and revolution. The end state is the loss of our natural rights and property. The very few wish to rule and to distribute what they want to the majority who are powerless (assuming the 2nd Amendment is gone). We’re getting closer to that end state every day. Weekly we hear about efforts to water down our constitution or eliminate amendments all together.
But if that weren’t enough, the Islamists have the same objective — to convert America into a Sharia state ruled by Sharia/Islamic law. Although the lesser of the two evils, they are still a scary proposition.
So now the question is what can you do? For one, educate yourself on both subjects, determine what you believe, and then spread that word. Without action on the part of many Americans, we will be doomed to defeat — one way or the other. Far too many Americans are asleep safely within their ‘bubbles’ thinking things won’t change — a huge mistake! Things have been changing and will continue to change unless we each take action to prevent a horrible future for America.
Remember, the first step of resolving a problem is to become aware of the problem. Then one needs to accept its reality and take action to prevent it. And that means you…
During the reign of Obama, there were several incidents which indicated his allegiance to Islam, but in 2015 he may have outdone himself. There is apparently evidence indicating that the FBI was complicit in the Garland, Texas jihad attack at a free speech event co-organized by Pamela Geller. The following are excerpts from the Washington Examiner.
The security guard wounded in a 2015 ISIS-inspired terrorist attack at the “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas, is suing the FBI, and argues the bureau is liable for his damages because an agent “solicited, encouraged, directed and aided members of ISIS in planning and carrying out the May 3 attack,” according to court documents filed Monday.
If the plaintiff, Bruce Joiner, doesn’t settle with the bureau, the case could shake loose hundreds of documents from both local and federal officials about what happened that day, and could answer the question of why an FBI agent was in a car directly behind the attackers and did nothing as the events unfolded.
In May of 2015, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi drove from their home in Phoenix to the Curtis Culwell center in Garland where the “Draw Muhammad” contest was being held, in a car loaded with three rifles, three handguns, and about 1,500 rounds of ammunition.
The two never made it inside, as guards, including Joiner, stopped them outside at a perimeter checkpoint, at which time Simpson and Soofi opened fire. Because the event was heavily guarded, the two were quickly shot and killed and barely made past the checkpoint where they opened fire.
Joiner was the only victim that day. He took a bullet to the left leg, and ISIS would later claim credit for orchestrating the attack, making it the first ISIS-backed terror event on U.S. soil.
Joiner’s lawsuit is seeking just over $8 million in damages, and argues that the FBI essentially allowed the attack to happen.
“The FBI helped the terrorists obtain a weapon that was used in the attack by lifting a hold during a background check, incited the terrorist to attack the Garland event, and even sent an agent to accompany the terrorists as they carried out the attack,” the court filing said.
The filing also alleged that former FBI Director Jim Comey lied in a “post-attack cover-up” about the bureau’s knowledge of how the attack unfolded and what Comey and the bureau knew about what was likely to transpire.
“In the aftermath of the attack, former FBI Director James Comey lied to the American people by claiming that Simpson was a needle in a haystack’ that was ‘invisible to us,'” the filing alleged. “Even after it had come to light that an undercover FBI agent had been communicating extensively with the terrorists during the week prior to the event and had accompanied them as they carried out the attack, the FBI continued to assert that “[t]here was no advance knowledge of a plot to attack the cartoon drawing contest.”
The FBI did not respond to a request for comment.
Since the attack, a separate court case and a “60 Minutes” report in March revealed that an undercover FBI agent was in the car directly behind Simpson and Soofi when they opened fire, and was even taking pictures of the car about 30 seconds before the first shots were fired. That case even revealed that the agent had texted Simpson just weeks before with the message, “Tear up Texas.”
Shortly after the first shots were fired, the agent fled, and was briefly detained by Garland Police, as seen in a video still from WFAA TV in Dallas.
Because of a separate court case tangentially related to Simpson and Soofi, it’s known that the FBI had been monitoring Simpson for years, and that the FBI agent was undercover in the Phoenix ISIS cell had direct contact with them routinely in the months leading up to the attack.
Joiner’s attorney, Trenton Roberts told the Washington Examiner this year that he now believes the FBI might have been willing to let the attack unfold to even greater lengths.
“It seems like it had to have been one or the other,” Roberts told the Washington Examiner in April. “Just a complete botched operation where they [the FBI] don’t want the attack to actually take place, or, it’s something where they need the attack to take place in order for this guy [the agent] to advance in the world of ISIS.”
“And that’s really what I think. I think that they thought, ‘he’s undercover and in order to advance, he needed to get pictures or video of this attack,’ and then that would bolster his street cred within ISIS,” Roberts said.
I guess we can add Comey to the list of those who made ‘somewhat’ questionable decisions during their time in office (e.g., Eric Holder). It scares me to think of what is coming in our future. If we have our chief law enforcement people working in concert with terrorist ‘to make a point’, we are definitely in trouble.
When I’ve spoken of communist activity within our country before, and I often refer to ‘they’. I am often asked who they are. They are numerous sources all of which have the same objective — the transformation of this country into a communist state.
The following video is of Glenn Beck giving us just one example of they, while at the same time pointing out that forces outside of our country are part of the ‘they‘ crowd. I am sure that to some this is merely a conspiracy theory. But in time, giving our current direction, everyone will eventually see the result of ignoring these warnings. Today antifa, tomorrow anarchy. We’re just waiting for the ‘match’ to be struck and the blaze to form…
Several years ago we heard the words, “We’re only five days away from fundamentally transforming this nation”. And now ladies and gentlemen, we are much closer.
As hard as it is to believe, the cadet in the foreground is a graduate of our U.S. Military Academy. The writing in his hat says, “Communism will win”. Of import, he is a member of Democratic Socialists of America. Bernie Sanders identifies himself as a democratic socialist. Lenin identified himself the same way until the Soviet Union was formed. Then, ‘surprise’, he came out as a communist.
Marxism has many labels — communism, socialism, progressivism, democratic socialism, et al. I have to wonder when the American people will accept the fact that it is here. . . now. How many more ‘clues’ do they need..?
If you follow this blog, this post’s content shouldn’t come as a great surprise. But, there are two differences: I am re-posting my own post from another site; and this article brings together what has happened for the last 100 years with what is happening today. Hopefully it will make the ‘picture’ much clearer..?
During the 50’s we had to worry about nuclear war because of our relationship with the Russians. (de ja vue?) Kids were being training to hide under their desks while in school in case of a nuclear attack..?! Sounds nuts, huh?
Well today we have a LOT of things to worry about and the count keeps increasing. In recent years there has been a growing lack of trust in our country (between individuals), and people are feeling it. Consequently suicides are up — a lot! How much you ask? A simple clue is that Americans’ overall life expectancy has declined for the first time since the 1930s!! (i.e., the depression) Certainly not good.
The following article was taken from Breakpoint, a Christian website which promotes a better life through faith. Something that more people should consider. But, unfortunately there are fewer real Christians in this country every year rather than more.
If you have an interest in psychology and/or you are a pastor in a church, you should also read the following more detailed report written by a psychologist. A bit longer, but worth reading — I’m sure you’ll find it worthwhile doing so.
My question are: What can we as individuals do to help the situation (beside taking care of ourselves and not being a further burden on society). And, where is this all going to lead in the near future..? My guess is that if we stay on our current track, we’re going to be in big trouble!!?
