"Peter" has some thoughts on the riots in Ferguson, Missouri.
Michael Brown was a young black man, tall and big and strong, in Ferguson, MO. He thought he could shove around a small store owner and steal goods from the store with impunity. He thought he could walk down the middle of the street and block traffic with impunity. He thought he could assault a police officer and take away his gun because he was bigger and tougher than the officer and could cow him down, just like he had done to the store owner. He was wrong and he paid the price for his arrogance, stupidity and violent behavior with his life.
But other, similarly stupid people with a grudge against police started rumors based on lies that Brown had been shot in the back while he had his hands in the air in surrender. The rumors were gladly accepted as fact by those in the Ferguson looking for an excuse to protest against the police or just join the crowd to act out. The rumors were also gladly accepted as fact by certain unethical members of the media looking to hype up newspaper sales or TV ratings. The resulting protests and the media coverage attracted the criminal elements from far and wide for the opportunity to loot and pillage the community and attack police officers under the cover of being protesters.
The media loved it and provided 24-7 coverage, boosting TV ratings and newspaper sales nationwide. This attracted even more "protesters" who saw it as an opportunity to get seen on TV or get their picture in the newspaper. And so was born a vicious cycle of ever increasing violence, chaos, shooting victims, arson, teargas, fireworks and overwhelmed police. The governor sent in the National Guard to back up the police. The media were absolutely thrilled!
Some members of the media arrogantly thought they were protected by the First Amendment and, as free press, they could go wherever they pleased, whenever they pleased. They mixed in with the protesters and proudly spoke into their TV cameras that they were in the middle of the chaos and were reporting "live" from the scene. They refused orders from the police to "Get the f@#k out of there" and were promptly arrested. Apparently the media can be just as arrogant and stupid as the criminals and thugs.
So, what can we learn from all this?
1. If you jump on a police officer and try to take his gun, then when he tries to arrest you, you charge him like a bull in an arena, you can pretty much count on ending up in a hospital or morgue.
2. The media contribute greatly to making a bad situation worse and even actively participate in riling up a mob, because it's good for business and many reporters are apparently adrenalin junkies.
3. If you advertize opportunities for looting, pillaging and getting on TV, they will come in droves and raise the city to the ground.
4. Sending out one man patrol cars in a high crime area, or any area for that matter, is sheer stupidity and probably the result of a weak chief letting bean counters run his police department.
5. They're going to make a movie about Ron Johnson.

"Rook" has some thoughts on Islam.
The Christians in Egypt, who have been there for 2,000 years, are being attacked, their churches burned and their priests murdered. In the past decade thousands of Christians have been murdered in Egypt - not by Al Qaeda or other terrorists, but by their Muslim neighbors who are obeying their holy Qur'an. Christians in most other Muslim controlled countries are suffering similar fates. And it's not just Christians being attacked; Jews, Buddhists, Hindus - anyone who isn't a Muslim will become a target.
The myth that Muslims are peace loving and should be tolerated in OUR neighborhoods is putting this nation at risk. Look what is happening in Paris, London, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, etc. They are being torn apart by Muslim activism, fighting to take political control of their areas. It starts with demanding that Shariah law be adhered to in their neighborhoods. Then they demand that police and other government authorities stay out of their neighborhoods. If resistance is met, they stage large scale protests. If that doesn't get the desired response, they riot. Next comes the terrorism of assassinations, arson and bombings; not by Al Qaeda, or Al Shabab or some other Jihadist gang, but by their Muslim residents. Whatever it takes to get control. All of these things have happened or are happening in European countries. It is an incontrovertible fact that can be verified simply by reading or listening to the foreign press.
Why the foreign press? Because the news media in the USA believe it is politically incorrect to report such matters, as it may hurt the feelings of the Muslims here. You also can't be told the truth because it may influence you to be suspicious of Muslims and their intentions here; and that would also hurt their feelings.
If we allow sufficient numbers of Muslims to emigrate here then, inevitably, the same things will happen here that are happening in Europe - in time. It is written in the Qur'an.

In 732 AD the Muslim Army which was moving on Paris was defeated and turned back at Tours, France, by Charles (The Hammer) Martell who was the Grandfather of Charlamange who became King of the Holy Roman Empire in 800 AD.
…in 1571 AD the Muslim Army/ Navy was defeated by the Italians and Austrians as they tried to cross the Mediterranean to attack southern Europe in the Battle of Lepanto.
...in 1683 AD the Turkish Muslim Army, attacking Eastern Europe, was finally defeated in the Battle of Vienna by German and Polish Christian Armies.
...this crap has been going on for 1,400 years and half of these damn politicians don't even know it !!!
…if these battles had not been won we might be speaking Arabic and Christianity could be non - existent;
Judaism certainly would be... And let us not forget that Hitler was an admirer of Islam and that the Mufti of Jerusalem was Hitler's guest in Berlin and raised Bosnian Muslim SS Divisions: the 13th and 21st Waffen SS Divisions who killed Jews, Russians, Gypsies, and any other "subhumans".
A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine that America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves.
Pause a moment, reflect back. These events are actual events from history. They really happened!!!
Do you remember?
1. In 1968, Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male.
2. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnapped and massacred by Muslim males.
3. In 1972 a Pan Am 747 was hijacked and eventually diverted to Cairo where a fuse was lit on final approach, it was blown up shortly after landing by Muslim males.
4. In 1973 a Pan Am 707 was destroyed in Rome, with 33 people killed, when it was attacked with grenades by Muslim males.
5. In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim males.
6. During the 1980's a number of Americans were kidnapped in Lebanon by Muslim males.
7. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim males.
8. In 1985, the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70 year old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim males.
9. In 1985, TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens , and a US Navy diver trying to rescue passengers was murdered by Muslim males.
10. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim males.
11. In 1993 , the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by Muslim males.
12. In 1998, the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim males.
13. On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used as missiles to take down the World Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one crashed into the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by Muslim males.
14. In 2002, the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim males.
15. In 2002, reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and beheaded by---you guessed it was a--- Muslim male.
16. In 2013, Boston Marathon Bombing 4 Innocent people including a child killed, 264 injured by Muslim males.
No, I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?
So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people.
Absolutely No Profiling!
They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old, Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males, alone lest they be guilty of profiling.
Have the American people completely lost their Minds, or just their Power of Reason???
Let's send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Aldreds and other stupid attorneys along with Federal Justices that want to thwart common sense, feel ashamed of themselves -- if they have any such sense.
As the writer of the award winning story 'Forrest Gump' so aptly put it, 'Stupid Is As Stupid Does'.
"Peter" has some thoughts on Obama's speech before the cadets at West Point.
West Point Class of 2014 Commencement, May 30, 2014
The West Point graduating class of 2014 "spoke" volumes as their commencement speaker, BarakObama, used the speech NOT to laud them for their accomplishments and their sacrifice to serve in the U.S. Military, no, instead he chose to use that precious time to tell them how effective his foreign policy has been, how the military role in foreign policy going forward (paraphrasing) "ain'twhat it used to be" and is no longer a leading line of defense. At times he stumbled over the words on the teleprompter to the point of embarrassment but he didn't seem to be in the least bothered by it.
To top off his narcissistic ramblings in which he claimed successes in Syria and Ukraine for God's Sake and bragged about ending the war in Iraq (and as every cadet sitting there knew, his actions of pulling all troops on a date certain, handed Iraq right back to Al Qaeda linked terrorist groups as if the sacrifices our military made was of no consequence and stood for nothing). Believe me, every one of those intelligent, well informed cadets knew the sacrifice this president flushed down the toilet and for what; political gain.
As if that wasn't bad enough, he then lectured the cadets that they must focus on the progressive social policy of GLOBAL WARMING!He told them they must be prepared to help the government enforce the legislation. The looks on the cadets' faces said it all!!! I could read their minds. "Since when has ANY of our military been used to enforce social policy? How 'bout NEVER! And for good reason, Mr. president, that kind of use of the military only happens under DICTATORS, you ass. We studied long and hard to learn how to lead troops to defend our country from enemies both foreign and domestic, not enforce domestic and social policy at a president's whim!"
The cadets, as is the custom, were prompted to applaud at designated intervals throughout the speech. At first, the majority of the cadets clapped on cue (out of respect for the office I would imagine) but there was no enthusiasm in it. Not even at the beginning. As the speech progressed, fewer and fewer cadetsclapped. Many chose to stare at the ground. By the end there were only five or six clapping when prompted. Did the president seem to notice the cadets' silent protest? Oh hell no. He was so enthralled by the sound of his own voice he stood there and beamed like the cat that swallowed the canary.
Here's the topper; as the president handed out the diplomas to the West Point cadets; each one very accomplished, intelligent and dedicated to serving their country, their Commander-in-Chief BOPPED AROUND on the stage CHEWING GUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Disrespectful? Yeah, I'd say. He is clueless six years in to his presidency. There again, the expressions on the cadets faces told it all. Contrasts don't get much more stark than that.
"Peter" has some thoughts on extremism.
The word "extreme" is being bandied about quite liberally these days.
Muslim radicals are called "extreme" because they want to kill all infidels, especially Americans, in their Jihad. But a recent poll in Iraq disclosed that 80% of the population there considers Americans to be legitimate targets of Jihad. And you may recall that after 9-11 there was dancing in the streets and celebrations in virtually all of the countries with predominantly Muslim populations. So the Muslim radicals are merely those Muslims who are carrying out the wishes of the majority of Muslims who want you dead, but don't want your blood on theirhands.
The word "extreme" has also been liberally applied to the TEA Party by democrats and even some Republicans. Upholding the Constitution is "extreme"? Wanting smaller government is "extreme"? Proposing that the federal government have a balanced budget is "extreme"? Securing the borders is "extreme"? Insisting that government officials be held accountable for their actions/inactions is "extreme"? Being pro-life is "extreme"? Being patriotic is "extreme"? Standing up for your Constitutional rights, like the 2nd Amendment, is "extreme"? I don't think so...and that's all the TEA Party is about!
The word "extreme" is hurled by democrats at political opponents frequently, when the democrats can't think of anything specific to criticize. It has become their "go to" word because it has worked for them. Apathetic or just plain ignorant voters (the apparent majority) seem to cringe at the word "extreme" and readily accept the inappropriate and false allegation as fact without any further explanation or corroboration. They just don't care. The most corrupt government in my long lifetime is still getting 30+ percent of the voters approval. Ignorance is bliss...
Until America wakes up to the threats facing us and the voters educate themselves, we will continue this downward spiral the country is in, economically, diplomatically and ethically.

"Peter" has some thoughts on the Gitmo prisoner exchange.
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) authorizes Obama to declare martial law and scoop up untold numbers of citizens without legal cause. But, it does NOT authorize Obama to negotiate with terrorists or release terrorists from GITMO.
Emails Sgt. Bergdahl is said to have sent to his parents suggested he was disillusioned with America’s mission in Afghanistan, had lost faith in the U.S. Army’s mission there and was considering desertion. He walked off his assigned base without authorization and disappeared. Was he truly a prisoner, or has he been cooperating and assisting the Taliban all along? No one can say...but it's evident that he deserted. Did he convert to Islam?
Bergdahl told his parents he was “ashamed to even be American.” Bergdahl, who mailed home boxes containing his uniform and books, also wrote: “The future is too good to waste on lies. And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong.” Sounds like he converted to Islam...
Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagle said that it COULD be determined that Bergdahl has more than paid the penalty for deserting – “if that’s what really happened – and there’s every indicator that he did.”
So, this "negotiation" provides considerable "aid and comfort" to the enemy, makes Obama look good politically (because the press aren't following up on the apparent treason aspect of the story), lets Bergdahl off the hook for deserting to the enemy and further weakens U.S. foreign policy by - once again - unlawful conduct by Obama and his cadre in violating our own law against negotiating with terrorists.
The Taliban wins by getting back their leaders. Obama wins by distracting the public from his many scandals and giving the false appearance that he cares about someone other than himself. Bergdahl wins because he probably won't face charges for desertion or treason - and he'll be free at home to further assist the terrorists when needed. The media wins because they can once again ignore the scandals and create a public relations bonanza for Obama and the democrats. No doubt the world-wide media will create a public relations bonanza for the Taliban and Islamic terrorism in general.
"Legion" has some thoughts on Attorney General Holder.
Well, AG Holder is at it again. Is there a bigger racists in the country than he and all the other so-called spokespeople for the black community? Holder showed his colors (no pun intended) right from the beginning of the Obama regime when he wouldn't punish the "New Black Panthers" (nothing new about their message) for intimidating white voters on the polling station. Nope, didn't see any crime there. Within the past week he made another speech to a predominantly black crowd and ranted on and on about how bad racism still is in the US, and in some ways, even more racist than ever before. What will it take, and how many more trillions of dollars must we taxpayers fork over before the blacks finally feel that justice has been reached.
