Hans-Georg Maassen, Head of the German Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (Bundesamt Fuer Verfassungschutz)
“BfV further said hundreds of jihadis arrived among the more than one million migrants who entered the country over the past two years.”
“We have to assume that we can expect further attacks by individuals or terror commandos in Germany too,” BfV chief Hans-Georg Maassen said at a press conference Tuesday. “Islamist terrorism is the biggest challenge facing the BfV and we see it as one of the biggest threats facing the internal security of Germany.”
Well no shit.
I am not criticizing Herr Maassen, as the German intelligence community is very robust. However, the country is run by those they are either blind, stupid, or trying to destroy their nation (see Angela Merkel). Add to that the German people have been living in a protected bubble for decades. Too many Germans are surprised by the actions of many refugees, whom they were told were all very nice, educated doctors or some other such nonsense.
Political correctness in Germany is much worse than America and is more indoctrinated into their populace. For many Germans, they’d rather let rape, murder and abuse proliferate than be seen as mean. Plus the German government has used the anti-Nazi laws to restrict free speech to a great extent.
Democrats are already stating they will not comply with President Trump’s voter fraud commission probe. So, how exactly can we be sure there is no voter fraud? Just like the DNCs hacked servers that were never turned over to the FBI, the Democrats don’t want the American public to see what’s behind the curtain.
Three states, California, Virginia and Kentucky, have said they won’t comply. Isn’t voter fraud a serious issue? Shouldn’t it be investigated? Many on the left say there is no wide spread voter fraud. But wouldn’t hacking by the Russians be voter fraud. There was no need for evidence in that investigation. As the left always says, the issue is too serious not to investigate.
I don’t know if there is or isn’t enough voter fraud to alter a presidential election or a local election for that matter, but shouldn’t we be trying to ensure our system is unquestionable. Or are there some that like it a little vague and open?
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the Presidents travel executive order in October. In the mean time they have lifted most of the restrictions put on the order by lower courts.
What bothers me is that the 9th circuit where most of the lower ruling come from seems to rule without regard to the law. Activist judges that don’t appear to either know the law or feel it necessary to enforce or rule by the law rule unabated.
Granted if the Democrats continue on their historic losing streak it may eventually be a moot point.
Many traditional Democrats are coming to the realization that Hollywood, Silicon Valley and the District of Colombia have no idea what the average American is dealing with.
Argument 1: #Afghanistan is falling apart. The Taliban has re-emerged and is taking hard fought ground back from the Afghan government. More troops are needed to push back the Taliban and re-assert the government’s authority.
Argument 2: The Government of Afghanistan is so utterly corrupt that more troops won’t help the situation. The continual in-fighting and distrust of the Ghani administration will not be helped by more troops. Pakistan’s support of the Taliban using its land as a base will continue to frustrate any coalition forces.
Argument 3: If the US doesn’t send in troops the Afghan government will be over, the Taliban will regain control and the Afghan countryside will once again become a training ground for terrorism. Let the Afghan government fall. The Taliban will rebuild and in the aftermath and the US coalition forces can then attack in massive force (air), cutting off the retreat to Pakistan and destroy the Taliban. This will not fix the country but may leave it less a threat and reduce US casualties.
Argument 4: If the US and coalition forces are unwilling to rebuild (run ourselves) an Afghan government that is at least not as corrupt as the current administration and the last, if the in-fighting between the various factions can’t be stopped, we will not be able to save this war. If the US is unwilling to confront Pakistan in a meaningful way we will not be able to win this war. If the US is unwilling to kill many people without regard to the press’s crying of innocent civilians we will not be able to win this war and more troops won’t help.
More troops to Afghanistan? To what end?
Before we send more troops we need to define what victory is. What does it look like? Are we willing to do whatever it takes to achieve it?
If we cannot answer the first two questions or the answer to the third is no, then leave.
nbcwashington.com “House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and four other people were shot and wounded Wednesday morning as the Republican congressional baseball team held an early-morning practice in Alexandria, Virginia.”
bnd.com “The shooter who fired at congressmen and aides during practice for a baseball game Wednesday morning is from Belleville.
The shooter is James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, who belongs to a number of anti-Republican groups, including one called “Terminate the Republican Party.”
Hodgkinson, 66, owns a home-inspection business. Hodgkinson was a licensed home inspector from 1994 to 1997, when his license expired, according records from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. He also held a license from 2003 to 2016, but it was not renewed.
Two days ago, Hodgkinson posted an angry tweet about President Donald Trump on Facebook.
“I Want to Say Mr. President, for being an ass hole you are Truly the Biggest Ass Hole We Have Ever Had in the Oval Office,” he wrote on Facebook.”
The Smoking gun; “The gunman who opened fire this morning on Republican congressmen and staffers recently declared in a Facebook post that, “It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”
The Week; “Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) recounted an "odd" encounter he had as he was leaving the field just minutes before the shooting: "There was a guy that walked up to us that was asking whether it was Republicans or Democrats out there, and it was just a little odd," DeSantis told Fox News.”
The left continues to hurl accusations of violence at the right yet it seems most of the actual and imitated violence is from the left. The liberal, tolerant left can’t tolerate any deviation from their group think.
The leaders of the Democratic Party are not helping.
They keep pushing and their demented followers will act. The hate the left has knows no bounds.
“We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed – yet that is precisely what the internet, and the big companies that provide internet-based services provide,” Ms May said.
“We need to work with allied democratic governments to reach international agreements to regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning.
No Prime Minister, you need to go to the places where the Jihadist live and teach. Neighborhoods filled with Jihadi preaching turds and Mosques need to be opened up and exposed. Those not citizens need to be removed. Citizens linked to Jihadist crimes or overseas training camps need to be jailed. The enemy is not hiding behind the Internet, they are right in front of you.
It’s not the internet. But of course once you control the internet you will certainly have control over free speech and those that criticize the government.
The governments of the West are too busy looking for “far right” boogeymen instead of fighting the fight that has been brought to us.
CIRCA reports that “Declassified memos show FBI illegally shared spy data on Americans with private parties” by John Solomon and Sara Carter.
“The FBI has illegally shared raw intelligence about Americans with unauthorized third parties and violated other constitutional privacy protections, according to newly declassified government documents that undercut the bureau’s public assurances about how carefully it handles warrantless spy data to avoid abuses or leaks.”
We are not in a good place in our country right now. Real treason appears to be taking place while politicians and most reporters are ignoring it as they push innuendo filled “fake news”.
Bloomberg.com surprisingly has a good article on the innuendo campaign.
Notice that Brennan did not accuse anyone in Trump’s orbit of espionage or treason. He didn’t say the Russian plan worked. He just said that when he left office he had questions. A definite "maybe."
