From The Daily Mail;
A trained terrorist from Norway is awaiting orders to carry out an attack on the West, officials from three European security agencies have revealed.
The man is believed to have received terrorist training from Al Qaeda’s offshoot in Yemen and is ready to strike.
Western intelligence officials have long feared such a scenario – a convert to Islam who is trained in terrorist methods and can blend in easily in Europe and the U.S., traveling without visa restrictions.
It’s a story that’s been avoided by the media the past few days with almost nothing being mentioned of it here.
The mind boggling part of this story is simply, why? I know this particular man is not an immigrant and therefore has Norwegian documents and travel abilities, but why on earth does any western country even let it’s citizens or immigrants else even travel to Yemen?
What legitimate reason could anyone possibly have for going to Yemen? Not to rip on every single Yemeni in the world, but why should we let people travel back and forth (for extended stays no less) to a country that’s been known for it’s terrorist training?
It’s common sense. If you’re looking for crack-houses you check Detroit not the suburbs of Oakland County. You’re looking for loose women you go to a nightclub not the senior center. The same logic can be applied to terrorists, you’re not likely to find many in the Virgin Islands.
You know where the action is so go find it, better yet find the people who want to go there. It’s not that hard.
You could just as easily include Pakistan for the same reasons, but considering it’s a bigger country with more people abroad i’m sure the outcries would be enough to make any western politician cave in to another people.
Germany’s Resistance May Prove ‘Fatal’ to Europe: George Soros.
That’s the headline of this article on cnbc.com. It makes you think whoever put up the headline made an error, the correct wording should be Europe’s Resistance May Prove ‘Fatal’ to Germany. But then you realize it’s George Soros speaking so of course it makes no sense.
Still you have to give credit to a guy who’s made billions even if it’s at the cost of entire economies. The ultimate bad guy that liberals are always seeking in the form of the Mitt Romney’s of the world actually exists in the form of Soros, but we can’t point that out seeing as how he happens to be a liberal financier.
Sow dissention and division in the system and you can hammer it apart one piece at a time. That’s the Soros strategy and when you.
Here’s a further article from zerohedge.com with the video of the interview.
You know how you can tell Soros is full of it? Because a guy who’s supposed to know economics knows that spending immense amounts of precious dollars/euros to serve as a band-aid to the problem of throwing away too much money in the first place simply doesn’t make sense.
Hell you don’t even have to know economics to understand that, it’s common sense. But Soros has his money in position and is playing his hand to try and take the pot. That’s all nothing more. A predator setting up his prey, this is what he does.
It’s slightly embarrassing that outlets like CNBC and Bloomberg lend credibility to people like George Soros, but then again that’s to be expected when news organizations gave up on understanding issues and instead chose to just go with what they liked.
Just what the world needed, 3
Dances with Wolves Avatar sequels. That’s right 3, count em 3 sequels scheduled to be filmed at the same time.
While filming at the same time solves the old Harry Potter aging problem, Sigourney Weaver ain’t exactly going through puberty.
Here’s the story from Showbiz411. H/T to Drudge.
So the question is why do we need 3 Avatar sequels. Was the first movie that good? Short answer, no.
The movie was a dry, abstract effort of graphical distraction. The movie was nothing special, particularly when you realize it’s dances with wolves with dragons and blue geckos instead of Indians and horses.
Unoriginal plot, plain characters, “WHO CARES DUDE IT’S IN 3D!!!”
I’ve seen video games with more entertaining cut scenes and guess what, they use the same technology. Except the 3d there’s nothing about Avatar that makes it a movie worth more than any other.
It’s unfortunate that people still lap this stuff up. I won’t be seeing any of them, but then again I have standards.
Watch this video from the Daily Caller of Bill Maher’s HBO program discussing Fast & Furious. Specifically watch from 4:00 to 4:30. What’s my point? Rachel Maddow’s serving as Press Secretary for the Democratic Party by serving up excuses as reason.
“Obama/Holder shut the program down”. Oh great so they didn’t have the foresight to think it was a bad program to begin with or that if they were going to create the operation that they should maybe include some preventive fail-safe measures. You know because their guns and as all good gun owners know, you have to act safely and use your brain because it’s not a toy and should not be handled lightly.
If you watch the whole video, you’ll see Maddow continue on about Fast & Furious being some conspiracy about Holder taking away the 2nd amendment and gun rights in America. Somehow I don’t understand this, but then again that should be expected if it is Maddow talking. So the democratic administration decided to create a gun-running operation so that guns would flow freely back into the United States causing violence so that they could use that as a reason to suppress gun ownership rights?
Highly unlikely. Considering that illicit items are used as bait for criminals on a regular basis, I don’t see this as being any different. It’s called a sting Maddow, i’m sure your super-smart witty screenwriter friends talk about it all the time. This one just happened to be planned and overseen without any plans or oversight.
Not that Maddow should be used as a legitimate representative of any movement considering her phoney baloney program, but if she’s what they want to serve up then I see no reason not to refute her.
Check out this story from the The Guardian in the UK,
So Saudi Arabia, with the assistance and cooperation of the United States, is going to fund a command centre in Turkey to help Syrian rebels receive supplies, funding, and training in their fight against Syrian President Assad and the loyal Syrian Army.
I’ve said before it’s not our business what the Syrians want to do and it still isn’t. Suck as it may, it’s their fight, their business, and their future and up to them.
With that being said the big problem is worrying that Syria will turn into Afghanistan. Think about it and the situation in Syria now is almost identical to Afghanistan from 1979 onwards. Except of course with out the Soviet communist presence. What is the same however is a country facing a civil war, receiving aid from Saudi Arabia and the United States.
Still the question remains, will Syria be the next Afghanistan or will it be Egypt? Or will Afghanistan retain the title?
One thing’s for sure, I feel bad for the next generation of Americans who will have to deal with the clusterbleep that is being created today.
Today’s popular trending story is about the Presidents statements that we need a “bottum-up” economic system instead of the “top-down” economic system.
He’s right, we need a system of economics built by the owners, workers, entrepreneurs, customers, and market needs.
So why is he continually pushing for more miniscule, uselss, headache-inducing laws and regulations on business and even life itself.
Much like freedom, an economic system that focuses on the needs of the population is more dynamic and resilient than one in which central planning and government/big business preferences are put ahead of common sense and reality.
There’s two problems with the President’s statement. First is the assumption that Republicans would take every single law and regulation off the books. Last I checked Republicans and Anarchists don’t sit too close on the political spectrum.
Second is the Presidents failure to realize he has the ability to enable this “bottom-up” system he speaks of, only he’s actually moved things in the other direction.
Welcome Home Drama. In case you didn’t know I’m back from 5 weeks in Eastern Europe. Which explains why I haven’t posted since mid May. It was enjoyable but also an experience to demonstrate the need to avoid communism/socialism at all costs.
Trying to get back into the blog and looking for material. Fast and Furious seems to be coming to a crescendo. Why?
How long has it been and we’re still working on this issue? What exactly has been done in the meantime that was so important it was prioritized over this? Bueller, Bueller, anyone, anyone? Can anyone think of a piece of amazing, mind-blowing legislation that’s been completed lately that’s kept congress so busy?
Watch the video to see the political theatre in action. We see the democrats claiming this investigation is absurd and a political stunt and then the republicans making their claims that the President and AG are blocking the investigation and being political. It’s all absurd.
Regardless of your point of view, can’t we all agree that the politicians are at least useless. There’s an issue, they want it looked into, so let’s look into it and get it over with. Why does this have to take years and years?
Here’s how it should work. “Hey we’d like to see those documents so we can see if anything nefarious went on here” “Ummm, I don’t know if we have them….” “Okay, well turn them over or your in contempt” “Here you go” “Thank you much, we’ll be in touch”.
Done. Issue solved.
We elect these twits to office for 4 or 6 year periods and you really have to wonder just how much work do they actually do? When’s the last time you can actually say Congress DID something? Kind of makes you think a monarchy might be worth it, if things at least get done.
