Debtor’s Prison for a Child’s Truancy Ends with Mother’s Death

A Pennsylvania mother of seven died in a jail cell where she was serving a two-day sentence for her children's absence from school, drawing complaints from the judge that sent her there about a broken system that punishes impoverished parents.

Eileen DiNino, 55, of Reading, was found dead in a jail cell Saturday, halfway through a 48-hour sentence that would have erased about $2,000 in fines and court costs. The debt had accrued since 1999, and involved several of her seven children, most recently her boys at a vocational high school.

"Did something happen? Was she scared to death?" said District Judge Dean R. Patton, who reluctantly sent DiNino to the Berks County jail Friday after she failed to pay the debt for four years.

He described her as "a lost soul," and questioned Pennsylvanian laws that criminalize such lapses as truancy or failing to pay a trash bill.

"This lady didn't need to be there," Patton said. "We don't do debtors prisons anymore. That went out 100 years ago.

Well, it has come back.

They claim the woman died of natural causes, but it is hard for me to take such a claim seriously. She just happened to suddenly die in the middle of her jail sentence?

That being said, my problem is with the system, not the people—as far as I can tell from newspaper accounts. By letting the woman “pay” the debt in two days he probably was motivated to help her be debt-free.

Although she was often unkempt, she came to court clean and neat to surrender Friday, he said. She had on clean sweatpants, had combed her hair, and had tape holding her glasses together.

"She was a different person. She was cleaned up, smiling," Patton said. "I think she realized, when this is done, the weight was off her shoulders."

I think it is time to figure out a different way of handling these fines for those who cannot afford them.

Oops! IRS Was Required By Law to Print Out Lois Lerner’s Emails

By Patrick Howley via DC

The Internal Revenue Service is required by federal law to keep records of all agency emails and to print out hard copies of the emails to make sure they get saved in the event of a computer glitch.

The IRS recently claimed that it lost 24,000 of 67,000 emails that ex-official Lois Lerner sent between 2009 and 2011, due to a computer crash. The IRS, which agreed to turn over all of Lerner’s emails to the House Committee on Ways and Means, specifically lost emails Lerner sent to other Obama administration agencies and the White House. Lerner is a major figure in the targeting scandal that has hit the IRS.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama’s press secretary, Josh Earnest, backed up the IRS’s claim of a computer crash. The IRS claimed that it is currently working to retrieve the emails by working with the other agencies, which are not obligated by the IRS’s agreement with the Ways and Means Committee to cooperate.

“The [Federal Records Act] requires agencies to make and preserve records of agency decisions, policies, and essential transactions, and to take steps to safeguard against the loss of agency records,” said House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, who subpoenaed IRS Commissioner John Koskinen Monday.

The IRS’s own definition of the Federal Records Act makes clear that emails must be saved and documented, according to an instructional page for employees on the IRS website.

“The Federal Records Act applies to email records just as it does to records you create using other media,” according to the IRS. “Emails are records when they are: Created or received in the transaction of agency business; Appropriate for preservation as evidence of the government’s function and activities; or Valuable because of the information they contain.”

“If you create or receive email messages during the course of your daily work, you are responsible for ensuring that you manage them properly,” according to the IRS. “The Treasury Department’s current email policy requires emails and attachments that meet the definition of a federal record be added to the organization’s files by printing them (including the essential transmission data) and filing them with related paper records. If transmission and receipt data are not printed by the email system, annotate the paper copy.”

“Please note that maintaining a copy of an email or its attachments within the IRS email MS Outlook application does not meet the requirements of maintaining an official record,” the IRS stated. “Therefore, print and file email and its attachments if they are either permanent records or if they relate to a specific case.”

Losing all evidence of agency emails, therefore, is a violation of federal law.

Even without the required printed-out copies, it appears that the IRS has Lerner’s emails saved.

 

“They’re all stored somewhere,” Koskinen told lawmakers at a March hearing, referring to Lerner’s emails.

“They get taken off and stored in servers,” he added.

"It's important for us to send a message to the world that when Americans are attacked, no matter how long it takes, we will find those responsible and we will bring them to justice." - Barack HUSSEIN Obama patting himself on the back regarding the capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala
 
Giving Obama a perfect narrative to once again sing his own praises, a new divert and deflect attention grabber has appeared as America's very own traitor-in-chief announced yesterday for all the world to hear that U.S. Special Operations forces captured Ansar al-Sharia commander Ahmed Abu Khattala...one of the supposed ringleaders of the attacks at Benghazi. Captured in a 'secret raid' in Libya over the weekend...on Obama's so claimed Friday go-ahead... what I want to know is why did he did NOT arrest himself and Hillary 'What Does It Matter' Clinton instead as they are the ones truly responsible for Benghazi...period.

So as Iraq falls to ISIS because of his...YES his...aiding and abetting the enemy... as Lois Lerner's e-mails have gone 'poof' into thin air...as the VA screws our vets while GITMO pieces of garbage and ILLEGALS get better medical care than they do...as our southern border is being overrun...Obama has 'suddenly' 642 days later...when his poll numbers are in the toilet...pulled a 'Hail Mary' pass and captures someone half a world away without a shot being fired and without so much as a struggle. And he did so while off playing golf, doing fundraisers, and bloviating about non-existent climate change at an ubber liberal southern California college.

And ain't he just so special to be able to all this yet he still can't get the ObamaCare website fully operational...which might actually be a good thing when you think about it.

So the man who claims he took out Osama bin-Laden...remember it was all about him as he gave little credit to the Navy SEALS...now claims his orders facilitated the capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala. Ahmed Abu Khattala, the very man who sipped lattes right after Benghazi telling the FBI that it wasn't safe to investigate...the very man who lived free in plain sight all these years and even talked to reporters...was captured just south of Benghazi on Sunday.

“He is now being transported back to the United States,” Obama spewed in his 'it's all about me' photo-op appearance before the cameras at TechShop in Pittsburgh, PA. And while he might be coming back to the U.S. now, what I want to know is how long Khattala has really been in custody waiting for just the right moment to do the 'sinking in the polls' Obama the most good...how long has this so-called just captured scenario been cooked up for if truth be told this is the mother of all divert and deflect tactics saved for the very moment when Trey Gowdy's Benghazi hearings are due to start...saved for the very moment when criticism is reaching a crescendo against Obama for his lack of action and lies about all things Benghazi.

And what a perfect diversion to take the pressure off Hillary's involvement as she sets-up what many believe will be is her 2016 presidential run.

With it taking a three-count criminal complaint...a complaint filed last year in U.S. District Court in Washington, DC...against Khattala and at least a dozen other terrorists...YES terrorists...in connection with the attack at Benghazi...it must be remembered that this is a complaint NOT an indictment or the paper work needed to actually charge him. Filed by the FBI to justify the capture of the very man who's been on the government's list of 'highly wanted targets' for years...that man will be charged in a U.S. criminal court with “killing a person in the course of an attack on a federal facility involving use of a firearm,” on Sept. 11-12, 2012, providing and conspiring to “provide material support to terrorists resulting in a death” and possessing and using a firearm during a crime of violence.

And if convicted on the felony charges of murder alone, Khattala could be given the death penalty or life imprisonment, but with this being the U.S. where terrorists are read Miranda Rights and treated with kid gloves, you just know Khattala will be 'lawyered-up' to the hilt making this criminal complaint just another 'dog and pony' show that might play well for the cameras but will probably amount to a slap on the wrist...after all he is one of the 'anointed one's' brethren you know.

So should Khattala be tried by the military as some want...me included...and could he end up where we usually hold al-Qaida militants as in the GITMO Country Club...complete with 3-squares a day...computer and TV access...soccer fields... better medical care than our veterans get...along with other creature comforts he most likely NEVER had back in the Libyian cesspool he came from. And while I'd love to see him in GITMO complete with a daily dose of waterboarding...I seriously doubt he will be on either account as the Obama loyal FBI knowingly filed criminal instead of terrorist charges to make sure it stayed in civilian court...where the case could languish and be stalled for years to allow Obama time to crow about this up through and beyond the November mid-term elections.

And so Kattala will be gently handled and his rights protected while Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty remain dead...while Barack HUSSEIN Obama gets away with (I believe) murder yet again. And instead of American jurisprudence following China's lead when it come to terrorists...as in over the weekend China executed in a timely manner 13 people with muslim connections who were indicted and convicted of terrorism...the 'supposed' rights of a terrorist will trump doing what we all know needs to be done. And Ahmed Abu Khattala will be given a prayer rug and a qur'an, will be kept well-fed, and will be allowed access to the internet and TV...and it will be all on our taxpayer dime.

And that my friends is one sorry state of affairs.

By Craig Andresen

wth 1When it comes to Iraq and the vile barbarians hell bent on genocide there, along with everything else going on right now, I have a few questions and first and foremost among them is…What the hell???

Obama makes it clear that he is NOT going to send ground troops into Iraq to take on ISIS…except for the 275 ground troops he just sent there?  What the hell???

Those troops are combat armed. Okay. They are NOT going to engage in combat with ISIS??? What the hell???

Obama is now talking to…IRAN…regarding military actions against ISIS? What the hell??? Obama says OUR military will NOT be joining with Iran to fight ISIS??? What the hell???

Obama claims he and his regime were caught off guard by the rise and genocidal actions OF ISIS???

Seriously…what the hell?

Let me see if I have this straight…Obama announces to our enemies in Iraq exactly when our troops will be removed FROM Iraq…he seeks absolutely NO provisions for a residual force of troops in Iraq to repel any militant Islamic terrorist uprisings there, thus creating the exact sort of vacuum militant, barbarian, Islamic terrorists seek to fill…he tells the nation during his campaign in 2012 that al-Qaeda is “on the run” is…”decimated” and “defeated” while in reality he knows damn well they are actively rebuilding and gaining strength and yet…ISIS, the Islamic State of Syria and Iran…an Islamic terrorist CALIPHATE in the making comes STREAMING out of SYRIA where HE has been ARMING ISLAMIC “rebels” and…HE’S CAUGHT OFF GUARD?????

Obama armed “rebels” in Libya…Hillary HIRED an al-Qaeda wing to provide “security” in Benghazi…Obama was by all reasonable accounts running weapons between al-Qaeda in Libya to al-Qaeda in Syria…both being our enemies in a time of war and thus committing treason…those terrorists attack our mission in Benghazi and our CIA annex there murdering 4 Americans…Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods…Obama announces just a couple of weeks ago that he is AGAIN arming Syrian “rebels” while he releases 5 Taliban TERRORISTS in a trade for a DESERTER and it comes out that Hillary’s State Department had GIFTED hundreds of surface to air and STINGER missiles TO the Taliban and all of a sudden…out of nowhere…ISIS springs into barbaric action murdering civilians and any who aren’t Sunni Muslims and…

HE’S CAUGHT OFF GUARD?????

He never saw it COMING???

What the hell?????wth 2

Apparently, after tying the hands of ICE and our border patrol…providing them with orders to “run away and hide” should violence break out along the border…providing Mexican drug cartels with high powered weapons…CLOSING DOWN border patrol stations…using his pen to sign the “dream act” and extending more and more freebies to ILLEGAL aliens…

Obama was similarly caught off guard by the current tsunami of ILLEGAL aliens flooding across the southern border.

He never saw it coming.

wth 3Lois Lerner, she of the twice pleading the 5th and refusing to testify regarding the Obama regime’s targeting of Conservative groups by the IRS recently had her emails subpoenaed and despite other email trails directly connecting the ranking liberal member of the house committee and liberal chairman of the senate committee TO the scandal that Obama has stated contained “not even a smidgeon” of corruption…Lerner’s emails…only those directly related to the specific time frame in question…have been destroyed by the ONLY COMPUTER CRASH in history to wipe out emails.

Yep…caught Obama off guard…never saw it coming.

What with ALL this swirling around him…what with the Obama regime’s house of cards crumbling rapidly…suddenly…out of seemingly nowhere…we get the announcement that Abu Khattala, the terrorist vermin who told reporters in Benghazi during the time when it was just too dangerous for the FBI to be there that HE was a key terrorist in the Benghazi attacks…has been arrested??? He’s now in the custody of the U.S. military ON A U.S. NAVY SHIP and about to be brought to the United States where he will have his RIGHTS…GUARANTEED HIM BY THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION READ TO HIM AND BE PROVIDED, AT OUR TAXPAYER EXPENSE…A DEFENSE ATTORNEY???

On a U.S. Navy SHIP? What…there weren’t any state rooms available on a Carnival cruise?

Gee…are you caught off guard by this most recent distraction meant to make Obama and his regime seem to be on the ball???

Did ya see it coming???

We’re told thatKhattala was caught off guard by his “capture”…that HE never saw it coming.

One is left to wonder if all HIS emails from September of 2012 have mysteriously vanished too.WTH 4

The idea we’re all supposed to believe here is that this Abu Khattala will sing like a bird and give up the rest of those Islamist terrorist pigs…spilling everything he knows which will lead to MORE arrests…MORE rights being read and the need for MORE taxpayer funded defense attorneys because…if he doesn’t cut such a deal…he’ll face the death penalty.

Oh really?

We caught the one and only terrorist swine who doesn’t want to be regarded a martyr by his barbaric brothers?

And how exactly is the Obama regime going to force this Abu Khattala piece of crap to talk…given their disgust at water boarding and their all too public loathing of sending such pigs to GITMO where they can play video games and soccer any time they wish???

Withhold the fresh fruit from his taxpayer bought and paid for Allah blessed by Bob Bergdahl halal, made to order Waldorf Astoria breakfast???

And we are now being asked to believe that Abu “Strawberry Frappe” Khattala was “captured” right there, in the same neighborhood as his favorite sidewalk café, nearly two years after the Benghazi attacks due to the work of the BRILLIANT Obama regime intel community that never saw ISIS coming???WTH 5A

By the same exact intel community that ignored the eye witness accounts of their very own Chief of Station in Benghazi and blamed those attacks…involving Khattala…on a YOU TUBE VIDEO that virtually nobody had seen???

Apparently, from what we’re being told…Khatalla was “captured” by U.S. Special Ops forces and were I THEM…I wouldn’t be taking any helicopter rides anytime soon.

Not that I’m a cynic but I DO have a pretty good bullcrap detector, therefore I am left with but one last question.

Seriously…

WHAT THE HELL?????

Has the Dept. of Homeland Security Become America’s Standing Army?
Category: Anti-American
Tags: DHS Obama control left progressives communists anti-American

cops

By John W. Whitehead via AP

“A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”—James Madison

“Here [in New Mexico], we are moving more toward a national police force. Homeland Security is involved with a lot of little things around town. Somebody in Washington needs to call a timeout.”—Dan Klein, retired Albuquerque Police Department sergeant

If the United States is a police state, then the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is its national police force, with all the brutality, ineptitude and corruption such a role implies. In fact, although the DHS’ governmental bureaucracy may at times appear to be inept and bungling, it is ruthlessly efficient when it comes to building what the Founders feared most—a standing army on American soil.

The third largest federal agency behind the Departments of Veterans Affairs and Defense, the DHS—with its 240,000 full-time workers, $61 billion budget and sub-agencies that include the Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, Secret Service, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)—has been aptly dubbed a “runaway train.”

In the 12 years since it was established to “prevent terrorist attacks within the United States,” the DHS has grown from a post-9/11 knee-jerk reaction to a leviathan with tentacles in every aspect of American life. With good reason, a bipartisan bill to provide greater oversight and accountability into the DHS’ purchasing process has been making its way through Congress.

A better plan would be to abolish the DHS altogether. In making the case for shutting down the de facto national police agency, analyst Charles Kenny offers the following six reasons: one, the agency lacks leadership; two, terrorism is far less of a threat than it is made out to be; three, the FBI has actually stopped more alleged terrorist attacks than DHS; four, the agency wastes exorbitant amounts of money with little to show for it; five, “An overweight DHS gets a free pass to infringe civil liberties without a shred of economic justification”; and six, the agency is just plain bloated.

To Kenny’s list, I will add the following: The menace of a national police force, a.k.a. a standing army, vested with so much power cannot be overstated, nor can its danger be ignored. Indeed, as the following list shows, just about every nefarious deed, tactic or thuggish policy advanced by the government today can be traced back to the DHS, its police state mindset, and the billions of dollars it distributes to police agencies in the form of grants.

Militarizing police and SWAT teams. The DHS routinely hands out six-figure grants to enable local municipalities to purchase military-style vehicles, as well as a veritable war chest of weaponry, ranging from tactical vests, bomb-disarming robots, assault weapons and combat uniforms. This rise in military equipment purchases funded by the DHS has, according to analysts Andrew Becker and G.W. Schulz, “paralleled an apparent increase in local SWAT teams.” The end result? An explosive growth in the use of SWAT teams for otherwise routine police matters, an increased tendency on the part of police to shoot first and ask questions later, and an overall mindset within police forces that they are at war—and the citizenry are the enemy combatants.

Spying on activists, dissidents and veterans. In 2009, DHS released three infamous reports on Rightwing and Leftwing “Extremism,” and another entitled Operation Vigilant Eagle, outlining a surveillance program targeting veterans. The reports collectively and broadly define extremists as individuals and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.” In 2013, it was revealed that DHS, the FBI, state and local law enforcement agencies, and the private sector were working together to conduct nationwide surveillance on protesters’ First Amendment activities.

Stockpiling ammunition. DHS, along with other government agencies, has been stockpiling an alarming amount of ammunition in recent years, which only adds to the discomfort of those already leery of the government. As of 2013, DHS had 260 million rounds of ammo in stock, which averages out to between 1,300 to 1,600 rounds per officer. The US Army, in contrast, has roughly 350 rounds per soldier. DHS has since requisitioned more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammo, “enough,” concludes Forbes magazine, “to sustain a hot war for 20+ years.”

Distributing license plate readers. DHS has already distributed more than $50 million in grants to enable local police agencies to acquire license plate readers, which rely on mobile cameras to photograph and identify cars, match them against a national database, and track their movements. Relying on private contractors to maintain a license plate database allows the DHS and its affiliates to access millions of records without much in the way of oversight.

Contracting to build detention camps. In 2006, DHS awarded a $385 million contract to a Halliburton subsidiary to build detention centers on American soil. Although the government and Halliburton were not forthcoming about where or when these domestic detention centers would be built, they rationalized the need for them in case of “an emergency influx of immigrants, or to support the rapid development of new programs” in the event of other emergencies such as “natural disasters.” Viewed in conjunction with the NDAA provision allowing the military to arrest and indefinitely detain anyone, including American citizens, it would seem the building blocks are already in place for such an eventuality.

Tracking cell-phones with Stingray devices. Distributed to local police agencies as a result of grants from the DHS, these Stingray devices enable police to track individuals’ cell phones—and their owners—without a court warrant or court order. The amount of information conveyed by these devices about one’s activities, whereabouts and interactions is considerable. As one attorney explained: “Because we carry our cellphones with us virtually everywhere we go, stingrays can paint a precise picture of where we are and who we spend time with, including our location in a lover’s house, in a psychologist’s office or at a political protest.”

Carrying out military drills and lockdowns in American cities. Each year, DHS funds military-style training drills in cities across the country. These Urban Shield exercises, elaborately staged with their own set of professionally trained Crisis Actors playing the parts of shooters, bystanders and victims, fool law enforcement officials, students, teachers, bystanders and the media into thinking it’s a real crisis.

Using the TSA as an advance guard. The TSA now searches a variety of government and private databases, including things like car registrations and employment information, in order to track travelers’ before they ever get near an airport. Other information collected includes “tax identification number, past travel itineraries, property records, physical characteristics, and law enforcement or intelligence information.”

Conducting virtual strip searches with full-body scanners. Under the direction of the TSA, American travelers have been subjected to all manner of searches ranging from whole-body scanners and enhanced patdowns at airports to bag searches in train stations. In response to public outrage over what amounted to a virtual strip search, the TSA has begun replacing the scanners with equally costly yet less detailed models. The old scanners will be used by prisons for now.

Carrying out soft target checkpoints. VIPR task forces, comprised of federal air marshals, surface transportation security inspectors, transportation security officers, behavior detection officers and explosive detection canine teams have laid the groundwork for the government’s effort to secure so-called “soft” targets such as malls, stadiums, bridges, etc. Some security experts predict that checkpoints and screening stations will eventually be established at all soft targets, such as department stores, restaurants, and schools. DHS’ Operation Shield, a program which seeks to check up on security protocols around the country with unannounced visits, conducted a surprise security exercise at the Social Security Administration building in Leesburg, Fla., when they subjected people who went to pick up their checks to random ID checks by federal agents armed with semi-automatic weapons.

Directing government workers to spy on Americans. Terrorism Liaison Officers are firefighters, police officers, and even corporate employees who have received training to spy on and report back to government entities on the day-to-day activities of their fellow citizens. These individuals are authorized to report “suspicious activity” which can include such innocuous activities as taking pictures with no apparent aesthetic value, making measurements and drawings, taking notes, conversing in code, espousing radical beliefs, and buying items in bulk.

Conducting widespread spying networks using fusion centers. Data collecting agencies spread throughout the country, aided by the National Security Agency, fusions centers—of which there are at least 78 scattered around the U.S.— constantly monitor our communications, collecting and cataloguing everything from our internet activity and web searches to text messages, phone calls and emails. This data is then fed to government agencies, which are now interconnected: the CIA to the FBI, the FBI to local police. Despite a budget estimated to be somewhere between $289 million and $1.4 billion, these fusion centers have proven to be exercises in incompetence, often producing irrelevant, useless or inappropriate intelligence, while spending millions of dollars on “flat-screen televisions, sport utility vehicles, hidden cameras and other gadgets.”

Carrying out Constitution-free border control searches. On orders from the DHS, the government’s efforts along the border have become little more than an exercise in police state power, ranging from aggressive checkpoints to the widespread use of drone technology, often used against American citizens traveling within the country. Border patrol operations occur within 100 miles of an international crossing, putting some 200 million Americans within the bounds of aggressive border patrol searches and seizures, as well as increasingly expansive drone surveillance. With 71 checkpoints found along the southwest border of the United States alone, suspicionless search and seizures on the border are rampant. Border patrol agents also search the personal electronic devices of people crossing the border without a warrant.

Funding city-wide surveillance cameras. As Charlie Savage reports for the Boston Globe, the DHS has funneled “millions of dollars to local governments nationwide for purchasing high-tech video camera networks, accelerating the rise of a ‘surveillance society’ in which the sense of freedom that stems from being anonymous in public will be lost.” These camera systems, installed on city streets, in parks and transit systems, operating in conjunction with sophisticated computer systems that boast intelligent video analytics, digital biometric identification, military-pedigree software for analyzing and predicting crime and facial recognition software, create a vast surveillance network that can target millions of innocent individuals.

Utilizing drones and other spybots. The DHS has been at the forefront of funding and deploying surveillance robots and drones for land, sea and air, including robots that resemble fish and tunnel-bots that can travel underground. Despite repeated concerns over the danger surveillance drones used domestically pose to Americans’ privacy rights, the DHS has continued to expand its fleet of Predator drones, which come equipped with video cameras, infrared cameras, heat sensors, and radar. DHS also loans its drones out to local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies for a variety of tasks, although the agency refuses to divulge any details as to how, why and in what capacity these drones are being used by police. Incredibly, the DHS has also been handing out millions of dollars in grants to local police agencies to “accelerate the adoption” of drones in their localities.

It’s not difficult to see why the DHS has been described as a “wasteful, growing, fear-mongering beast.” If it is a beast, however, it is a beast that is accelerating our nation’s transformation into a police state through its establishment of a standing army, a.k.a. national police force.

This, too, is nothing new. Historically, as I show in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, the establishment of a national police force has served as a fundamental and final building block for every totalitarian regime that has ever wreaked havoc on humanity, from Hitler’s all-too-real Nazi Germany to George Orwell’s fictional Oceania. Whether fictional or historical, however, the calling cards of these national police agencies remain the same: brutality, inhumanity, corruption, intolerance, rigidity, and bureaucracy—in other words, evil.

What Liberals Don't Know Can Kill Us

By Tad Cronn  via GP

What liberals don't understand could fill volumes. In fact, it already does, especially under the names of authors like Adams, Jefferson and Madison.

But the particular area of liberal ignorance that should concern us most at this moment involves Iraq's importance in the Middle East, to America and to the world.

In the world seen through liberal lenses, the war in Iraq was a) about oil, b) about carrying out some agenda of the first President Bush, or c) both.

According to the Left, there was no reason to be there, Saddam Hussein was a perfectly nice guy and no threat, al-Qaida didn't exist there, it just wasn't worth American lives or effort.

They still cling to the mantra that "there were no WMDs," (even though it's clear that Saddam had a stockpile and simply dispersed it to friendly countries) as if that was the only conceivable reason to ever step foot in Iraq.

What most presidents before this one have understood and liberals in general fail to grasp is that the future of the Middle East is crucial to the future of the U.S. and the world. Anyone with some knowledge of world history and a passing familiarity with chess could suss this out.

Managing the Middle East has long been about maintaining a balance of power. As long as Muslims were fighting each other or keeping their terrorist activities mostly confined to the region, the rest of the world was safe.

But then 9/11 happened.

The holy war broke out of the boundaries of the Middle East in a big way in the heart of New York City. Even the Left for a few days was gung-ho for "doing something," though liberals quickly reverted to type.

Anyone with sense knew that America had to confront al-Qaida, but when your enemy is a secretive, multinational terrorist organization whose soldiers don't even wear uniforms, how do you fight a war against them?

You do what Bush did. You pick a spot that's not your home turf, that gives you a tactical advantage, and you call the bullies out of their holes. I'm not going to argue about the details of this or that decision, whether Bush had enough worldwide support, whether our actions were justified, but I will argue that this was a tactical decision on the president's part that had to be made.

Why Iraq? Forget all the ballyhoo about WMDs, oil or whatever other strawmen liberals like to pick at. Iraq was chosen because Saddam Hussein had once been a key component in holding Islamists in check, but he had demonstrated with the invasion of Kuwait and years of stonewalling the U.N. that he was no longer of use to the West, pure and simple.

There was also a consideration of what should happen after any war with al-Qaida. Any country that served as the battlefield would have to be rebuilt and democratized, to serve the roll of guard against radical Islam that Saddam had in the past served. The Iraqi people are intelligent enough and westernized enough that they made good candidates for a new democracy.

So Iraq became the strategic choice.

Now, we have a president who either doesn't understand these straightforward dynamics, or who understands them but deliberately chose to act against American interests. Take your pick.

Why is it absolutely crucial to keep radical Islam in check? A little historical knowledge clarifies the whole picture. Since its beginning, Islam has been about expansion through violent conquest, from the Jews of Mecca and Medina, through the Crusades and up to the modern day. That natural tendency was only amplified when the Muslim Brotherhood was founded and soon discovered common interests with the Nazis, who aided the Brotherhood with money, equipment and training. To this day, the Muslim Brotherhood gives its trainees copies of Mein Kampf in Arabic. When you look at an Islamist terrorist, you're seeing a Nazi wrapped in mufti.

The ultimate goals of Islamist groups are clearly stated: Create a new caliphate that can compete with other world powers and spread Shariah law, then take over the world, converting everyone to Islam.

And liberals whine about American imperialism.

Just this morning, with al-Qaida's ISIS army on the march to Baghdad, and helicopters ferrying out Americans from the consulate like it was the Fall of Saigon II, Secretary of State John Kerry took a bold and decisive stand ... against global warming.

The blinders need to come off. The Left's ignorance is a clear and present danger to this country and the world.

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits” (Matt. 7:15-20).

How many times have we heard Islamic apologists tell us, “You can’t condemn an entire religion because of the actions of a few”? True enough until you ask this question: “Where is your outward and vocal condemnation of the actions of the few?”

Islamic atrocities are in the news daily. There are pictures of mass killings, and yet the Islamic community has remained virtually silent.

Bill Muehlenberg at Culture Watch gets to the heart of the issue:

“So did you hear about the mass demo of Muslims in Sydney worried about Islamic extremism? Did you catch the big turnout of Muslims in Paris denouncing jihad? Did you notice the tens of thousands of Muslims marching in London to stand against Islamic bloodshed and violence in Iraq? Did you read about the anti-jihad protests by concerned Muslims in Amsterdam?

"Neither did I.

“Instead, all we hear is crickets chirping. The silence has been deafening. One atrocity after another takes place all over the world, and the Islamic community remains absolutely mute. We just don’t hear a peep out of them distancing themselves from the terror and murder.

“And there may be several reasons for this. One, moderate Muslims really may not exist. Perhaps that is the reason. Or two, if they do exist, they rightly know that if they do speak up, they could well lose their heads – literally. That is also telling: Islam is so bad, that those who prefer real tolerance, civilisation and basic humanity are too terrified to speak up.

“And heaven knows there is plenty to speak up about. Not a day goes by without yet another horrific atrocity and murderous rampage being committed in the name of Islam. It becomes nearly impossible to keep up with them all.”

The list of atrocities continues to add up. When we see images of the holocaust, we ask why the German people didn’t rise up in protest against the monster Adolf Hitler.

 

There’s no way to ignore the fact that Islam is a detestable religion. If there are moderate Muslims who take offense at that evaluation, then I suggest that you take to the streets by the millions and prove me wrong.

“While it is true that most Muslims are not suicide bombers, or engage in decapitating the kafir and posting their pics on Youtube, Islam itself is a political ideology that is fundamentally about bloodshed, killing, terror and jihad. While there may be ‘nice’ Muslims, Islam is not nice.

“And the fact that ‘moderate’ Muslims remain silent about all the hideous bloodshed, torture and murder being done in the name of their religion, their god, and their prophet, is most telling indeed.”

Freed Islamic terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who now leads the Sunni ultra-extremist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), said, "I'll see you in New York," threatening to bring jihad to America. I want to know on whose side the so-called moderate Muslims will fight? Will they join with the jihadists or us? At this point, I don't know.

BREAKING: Special Forces Capture Benghazi Suspect, En Route Back To US – Update: Ahmed Abu Khattala Nabbed Over Weekend – Update: Had Been Living Openly In Benghazi…

More to follow…

Update: Some details.

(WaPo) – U.S. Special Operations forces captured one of the suspected ringleaders of the terrorist attacks in Benghazi in a secret raid in Libya over the weekend, the first time one of the accused perpetrators of the 2012 assault has been apprehended, according to U.S. officials.

The officials said Ahmed Abu Khattala was captured near Benghazi by American troops, working alongside the FBI, following months of planning, and was now in U.S. custody “in a secure location outside Libya.” The officials said there were no casualties in the operation, and that all U.S. personnel involved have safely left Libya.

Last year, the U.S. Attorney in the District filed charges against Khattala and at least a dozen others in connection with the Benghazi attacks. None besides Khattala — who is expected to be arraigned in Washington — has been apprehended.

Officials, speaking on condition of anonymity about the still-secret operation, would not say where Khattala was being held. They said he was “en route” to the United States, but would not say when he was expected to arrive.

Update: Khattala has been living openly in Benghazi since the attack, which makes the timing of this just a tad suspect in my opinion, especially when you consider Obama’s foreign policy has been in full meltdown mode.

(NY Times, 10/18/2012) – Witnesses and the authorities have called Ahmed Abu Khattala one of the ringleaders of the Sept. 11 attack on the American diplomatic mission here. But just days after President Obama reasserted his vow to bring those responsible to justice, Mr. Abu Khattala spent two leisurely hours on Thursday evening at a crowded luxury hotel, sipping a strawberry frappe on a patio and scoffing at the threats coming from the American and Libyan governments.

Libya’s fledgling national army is a “national chicken,” Mr. Abu Khattala said, using an Arabic rhyme. Asked who should take responsibility for apprehending the mission’s attackers, he smirked at the idea that the weak Libyan government could possibly do it. And he accused the leaders of the United States of “playing with the emotions of the American people” and “using the consulate attack just to gather votes for their elections.”

Mr. Abu Khattala’s defiance — no authority has even questioned him about the attack, he said, and he has no plans to go into hiding — offered insight into the shadowy landscape of the self-formed militias that have come to constitute the only source of social order in Libya since the fall of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi.

A few, like the militia group Ansar al-Shariah that is linked to Mr. Abu Khattala and that officials in Washington and Tripoli agree was behind the attack, have embraced an extremist ideology hostile to the West and nursed ambitions to extend it over Libya. But also troubling to the United States is the evident tolerance shown by other militias allied with the government, which have so far declined to take any action against suspects in the Benghazi attack.


How much do you want to bet that he will say that it was the video? (he has to, it's his only way out for our press and then the case is "settled")

 

Unreal: IRS Says It “Lost” Emails From Six More Employees Involved In Conservative Targeting Scandal…

Just a coincidence, no doubt.

Via NRO:

It’s not just Lois Lerner’s emails. The Internal Revenue Service says it can’t produce emails from six more employees involved in the targeting of conservative groups, according to two Republicans investigating the scandal.

The IRS told Ways and Means chairman Dave Camp and subcommittee chairman Charles Boustany that computer crashes resulted in additional lost emails, including from Nikole Flax, the chief of staff to former IRS commissioner Steven Miller, who was fired in the wake of the targeting scandal.

The revelation about Lerner’s emails rekindled the scandal and today’s news has further inflamed Republicans. Camp and Boustany are now demanding a special prosecutor to investigate “every angle” of the targeting. They expressed particular outrage that the agency has known since February that it would not be able to produce the emails requested by the committee yet did not apprise the committee of the fact, and they charged in a statement that the IRS is attempting to “cover up the fact that it convenient lost key documents in the investigation.”
