GOP Congressmen urge U.S. military generals to resign en masse

Dr. Eowyn:

As the Obama administration shows every sign of falling apart at the seams, talks are going on behind the scenes between Congressional Republicans and military leaders.

Hmm….

Six years into his presidency, all signs point to Barack Obama’s relations with the U.S. military — both top officials and rank and file — being in disrepair.

Obama seems to routinely ignore the counsel from military leaders. For their part, active and retired military officers publicly have stated their differences, while the rank and file distrust and have no confidence in their commander-in- chief. A recent Military Times survey found that support for Obama among the military has plummeted to less than 15%. See, for example:

President and Commander In Chief Barack Obama missed 6 of 10 daily intelligence briefings

Dr. Eowyn:

He doesn’t listen to the counsel of military leaders. His policies (or non-policies) have alienated allies across the globe and fostered the rise of radical Muslims in Egypt, Libya, and Iraq. He turns to Twitter for foreign policy ideas. Now comes a meticulous report that he doesn’t even attend his daily presidential intelligence briefings.

Is it any wonder, then, why our military distrusts Obama, and why America’s foreign policy is in such disarray?

I just pray that America and the world survive this POS.

The President of the United States, the most powerful person in the world, receives live, in-person Presidential Daily Briefs (PDB) that allow the Commander-in-Chief the chance for critical followup, feedback, questions, and the challenging of flawed intelligence assumptions.

An alarming report by the Governmental Accountability Institute (GAI) says that, in the 2,079 days (1/20/2009 thru’ 9/29/2014) since he became President and Commander-In-Chief, Barack Obama has attended a total of only 875 PDBs for an overall 42.09% attendance rate.

That means he missed 57.91% or 6 out of every 10 of his daily intelligence briefings.

Even worse, his attendance rate has worsened in his second term (41.26% attendance rate) as president than in his first term (42.43% attendance rate).

Obama doubles down on the Benghazi error and Congress helps

House approves Obama’s Iraq-Syria military strategy amid skepticism

In answer to Obama and Congress, I would ask,
“Have you forgotten Benghazi?”

We were funneling arms and support to jihadists in Benghazi, when things went sideways, leading to the murder of several Americans. Fearing political backlash, Obama worked to silence the people who were knowledgeable, by issuing gag orders.

We have people in Turkey, supporting islamist terrorists, and sending them into Syria to destabilize Assad’s government. Sounds okay, right? But these are the same people who have been beheading Christians in the historic Christian towns of Syria; the same ones who are terrorizing Iraq and Syria, and threatening European, Russian and American citizens; the same ones who were caught red-handed, gassing Syrian towns and trying to blame Assad’s army for the atrocity.

The destruction of governments across North Africa by the Muslim Brotherhood has Obama’s fingerprints all over it. In case you haven’t read it, the result was the ruin of the economy of Egypt, and the beginning of genocides all over the African continent. Did you know that, under Obama, our tax dollars are rebuilding mosques and islamic schools? Did you know that Obama’s family members in Africa are deeply embedded in the Muslim Brotherhood?

Just today, there was a bust in Australia, arresting ISIS members who were planning “random beheadings” in the that country. We have islamist militias training in compounds all over America, with nobody in our government shutting them down. We know that jihadists are pouring over our Mexican border, while our border patrol agents have been forced by our government to let them in.

At a time like this, any sane and moral leader would muster the Police, Army, Navy, and Air Force. Orders would be given to take down jihadists wherever they are found, to kill them if they show any sign of resistance. Unmistakable messages would be sent throughout the world, “America is coming after the islamic radicals, and you had better support us or at least get out of our way.”

So, Obama’s response to the outrageous beheadings of western journalists and overt threats to our own country was…

wait for it…

More of the same. Support more “good” jihadists

Congress agrees to fund more terrorists

Congress agrees to fund more terrorists

And Congress is okay with this?!!!

Feeling safe America?

Some excerpts from President Lucifer’s September 10th speech:

  • “ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.”
    – Pardon me, Mr. Lucifer, but ISIL is muslim, and islam’s murderous actions stretch from its beginning until the present day.
  • “Across the border, in Syria, we have ramped up our military assistance to the Syrian opposition.”
    – The same “Syrian opposition” who began the campaign of murdering the 2000 year old Christian population of Syria?
  • “This strategy of taking out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting partners on the front lines, is one that we have successfully pursued in Yemen and Somalia for years.”
    – Yemen and Somalia! Yeah, we all know what a success that was.
  • “It is America that helped remove and destroy Syria’s declared chemical weapons so they cannot pose a threat to the Syrian people”
    – Oh, you must mean those “freedom fighters” who gassed Syrian civilians, and tried to blame Syrian soldiers for it.

– And when American ISIS members decide it’s time to go back to Dearborn Michigan, the president will welcome them home!

CommieBlaster calls it quits, after 5 years of faithful reporting

Thank you, CommieBlaster, for your 5 years of tireless unpaid work.

Thank you, CommieBlaster, for your patriot’s heart.

We salute you and hope we’ll meet again when our beloved country and the world are new again.

~Dr. Eowyn and the (unpaid) writers of Fellowship of the Minds

Statue of Liberty in tears

From “Who Is John Galt,” CommieBlaster, Sept. 8, 2014:

(Note: John Galt is a character in Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged (1957), a philosopher and inventor who believes in the power and glory of the human mind, and the right of the individual to use his/her mind solely for him/herself. He serves as a highly individualist counterpoint to the collectivist social and economic structure depicted in the novel, in which society is based on oppressive bureaucratic functionaries and a culture that embraces mediocrity in the name of egalitarianism, which the novel interprets as the end result of socialistic idealism.)

Dear Readers,

5 years ago we launched a simple project. We collected internet links to selected news articles, sorted them into categories and made them available to the public on our website. We had no idea where this project would take us. Our journey was shocking, unimaginable, a nightmare.

Via our research, we learned:

We initially supposed that shining a light on this situation would solve it, but no more. We have learned, by studying history, the only way to stop this fascist insanity is to stage a multi-million-person, peaceful, sustained siege on Washington D.C., like the one-day protest we attended below. There are more of us than them, and they will back down if enough people organize and peacefully, legally resist. They know this and so they fear us.

However, with one party control of government and media, we no longer see this option happening in the near term unless a unifying event occurs or uncorrupted leaders emerge with the ability to reach and organize masses. As evidence of this assumption, even the most flagrant, obvious lies and crimes, such as the IRS scandals and Benghazi are effectively ignored by both parties, law enforcement, courts and media, and left unpunished.

There is enough evidence already captured on our website site to cause any reasonable person to see a sustained, deliberate pattern of organized crime on a massive scale and to demand an unbiased, independent investigation, trial and conviction of every treasonous member of Congress and Government involved. Therefore, we are ceasing in our daily reporting and placing our energies on new initiatives. Commercial-free, adware-free, money-influence-free, and political-correctness-free daily news reporting comes to an end, but our website remains to inform our fellow citizens of the Government’s lawless tyranny that occurred from September 2009 to September 2014.

Now it’s time for us to take a new path. We faithfully served our 5-year tour of duty as a reporter in America’s 100-year-old war against Communism without any form of compensation or personal recognition.

Who of you will pick up the flag next? Who will document and help stop our Government’s treason and crimes so we can prosecute the traitors? Who will show us how to restore what they have destroyed when this illegal form of Government is ultimately overthrown in the 2nd American Revolution?

WHO IS JOHN GALT?

I am. You are.

Let’s roll.

THIS IS BAD: Islamists take control of commercial jetliners in Libya

Another 9/11 on the way?

Another 9/11 on the way?

Washington Free Beacon: Islamist militias in Libya took control of nearly a dozen commercial jetliners last month, and western intelligence agencies recently issued a warning that the jets could be used in terrorist attacks across North Africa.

Intelligence reports of the stolen jetliners were distributed within the U.S. government over the past two weeks and included a warning that one or more of the aircraft could be used in an attack later this month on the date marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against New York and Washington, said U.S. officials familiar with the reports.

“There are a number of commercial airliners in Libya that are missing,” said one official. “We found out on September 11 what can happen with hijacked planes.”

The official said the aircraft are a serious counterterrorism concern because reports of terrorist control over the Libyan airliners come three weeks before the 13th anniversary of 9/11 attacks and the second anniversary of the Libyan terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the Benghazi attack, which the Obama administration initially said was the result of a spontaneous demonstration against an anti-Muslim video.

A senior State Department counterterrorism official declined to comment on reports of the stolen jetliners. A second State department official sought to downplay the reports. “We can’t confirm that,” he said.

Meanwhile, officials said Egyptian military forces appear to be preparing to intervene in Libya to prevent the country from becoming a failed state run by terrorists, many with ties to al Qaeda.

Libya remains an oil-rich state and if the country is taken over completely by Islamist extremists, U.S. counterterrorism officials believe it will become another terrorist safe haven in the region.

The officials said U.S. intelligence agencies have not confirmed the aircraft theft following the takeover of Tripoli International Airport in late August, and are attempting to locate all aircraft owned by two Libyan state-owned airline companies, as security in the country continued to deteriorate amid fighting between Islamists and anti-Islamist militias.

Video surfaced on Sunday showing armed fighters from the Islamist militia group Libyan Dawn partying inside a captured U.S. diplomatic compound in Tripoli. The footage showed one fighter diving into a pool from a second-story balcony at the facility.

Tripoli airport and at least seven aircraft were reported damaged during fighting that began in July. Photos of the airport in the aftermath showed a number of damaged aircraft. The airport has been closed since mid-July.

The state-owned Libyan Airlines fleet until this summer included 14 passenger and cargo jetliners, including seven Airbus 320s, one Airbus 330, two French ATR-42 turboprop aircraft, and four Bombardier CJR-900s. Libyan state-owned Afriqiyah Airways fleet is made up of 13 aircraft, including three Airbus 319s, seven Airbus 320s, two Airbus 330s, and one Airbus 340.

The aircraft were reportedly taken in late August following the takeover of Tripoli International Airport, located about 20 miles south of the capital, by Libyan Dawn.

Al Jazeera television reported in late August that western intelligence reports had warned of terror threats to the region from 11 stolen commercial jets.

In response, Tunisia stopped flights from other Libyan airports at Tripoli, Sirte, and Misrata over concerns that jets from those airports could be on suicide missions. Egypt’s government also halted flights to and from Libya.

Military forces in North Africa, including those from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Egypt have been placed on heightened alert as a result of intelligence warning of the stolen aircraft.

Egyptian military jets reportedly have conducted strikes inside Libya against Libyan Dawn positions recently, and U.S. officials said there are signs a larger Egyptian military incursion is being planned.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fatah al-Sisi was quoted as denying Egyptian air strikes into Libya have taken place but suggested that military action is being considered.

Secretary of State John Kerry last week told his Egyptian counterpart that the United States would speed up the delivery of Apache attack helicopters, although it is not clear the Apaches would be used in any Libyan operations.

Egypt’s military-backed government appears to be seeking a more significant role in regional security after the Obama administration helped engineer the ouster of Libyan strongman Moammar Qaddafi in 2011. Since then, the Obama  administration, through its announced policy of “leading from behind,” has stood by while Libya gradually has spiraled into chaos.

The Libyan government announced Sunday that it no longer controlled the capital of Tripoli. “We announce that the majority of the ministries, institutions, and associations in the capital Tripoli are no longer under its control,” a government statement said.

Libya’s parliament in August declared both Ansar al Sharia and Libyan Dawn as terrorist organizations working to overthrow the government.

Ansar al Sharia, which is based in Benghazi, recently publicized on social media that it has obtained large numbers of more sophisticated weapons, including SA-6 surface-to-air missiles, anti-aircraft guns, rocket-propelled grenades, shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles, assault rifles, and armored vehicles. The group is closely aligned with al Qaeda-linked rebels in Syria.

Abderrahmane Mekkaoui, a Moroccan military expert, told Al Jazeera television, which first reported the airline theft Aug. 21, the alert regarding the stolen jetliners was preventive and covers the region from Cairo to Lagos Nigeria.

Mekkaoui said the jets being held by the Libyan group called Masked Men Brigade that was designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the State Department in December. The Masked Men Brigade is linked to al Qaeda and Ansar al Sharia—the group behind the Benghazi terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2012.

Until the Libya Dawn takeover of the airport, announced Aug. 24, two other militia groups, known as Al Qaqa and Al Sawa controlled the airport and all aircraft belonging to Libyan Airlines and Afriqiyah Airways.

Mekkaoui said “credible intelligence” reports given to states in the region indicated the Masked Men Brigade “is plotting to use the planes in attacks on a Maghreb state” on the 9/11 anniversary.

Counterterrorism expert Sebastian Gorka said that if the theft is confirmed, the stolen aircraft could be used in at least two ways.

The first would be how commercial airliners were used on Sept. 11, 2001, literally turning an innocent mode of mass transit into a super-high precision guided missile of immense potency,” said Gorka, who holds the Maj. Gen. Charles Horner chair at Marine Corps University in Quantico, Va.

“The second tactic could be to use the airframe with its civilian markings as a tool of deception to insert a full payload of armed terrorists into a locale that otherwise is always open to commercial carriers,” he said.

Michael Rubin, a counterterrorism specialist with the American Enterprise Institute, said commercial jetliners in the hands of terrorists could be formidable weapons. “Who needs ballistic missiles when you have passenger planes? Even empty, but loaded up with fuel they can be as devastating,” Rubin said. “Each plane could, if deployed by terrorists to maximum devastating effect, represent 1,000 civilian casualties.”

Among the potential targets are urban areas and economic targets, like Saudi Arabia’s oil fields.

“Anyone who has ever flown over Saudi Arabia at night can see refineries like Yanbu lit up like Christmas trees against the blackness of the desert,” Rubin said. “One Saudi security officer once told me that they would only have about 90 seconds to shoot down a hijacked plane from the time it left international airspace to impact in one of the region’s most important refineries.”

Rubin said in 2003 a Boeing 727 went missing in Africa fueling concerns about a terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Karachi. “What is striking is that more than a decade later, the United States hasn’t taken the need to safeguard what are effectively giant guided missiles seriously,” he said.

A former Libyan general, Khalifa Haftar, has been leading anti-Islamist forces. His group has access to Libyan air force MiG jets that have conducted strikes on Libyan Dawn positions in recent days. Haftar also has conducted military raids in Benghazi.

The United Nations Security Council on Aug. 27 announced plans for new sanctions (stop it, I really mean it!) on Libyan militias and terrorists. In a resolution the U.N. warned of the “growing presence of al Qaeda-linked terrorist groups and individuals operating in Libya.”

This could be very bad. Pray that our nation, and others, stay safe this 9/11.
