Maps: The Return of the Islamic Caliphate?

October 26, 2011 3 comments

These maps illustrate the changes in the Middle East since Obama took office:

Map credit is to www.jeffhead.com .

With recent events taken into account, Pakistan should also be turning red. Turkey and Afghanistan should perhaps be pink. Iraq may be turning red with the removal of American and other Western Nation military forces. Welcome to Obama and Hillary’s new Middle East.

A summary of observations:

It took a billion of our scarce dollars, and the combined power of NATO to get one old man killed in Libya. That old man chose to stay and fight and stand up to NATO in spite of the odds for many months instead of retire with billions and his family. You have to admit it took courage/insanity/determination to do that.

In the end he was murdered in cold blood by a lawless mob instead of interrogated. Billions of dollars were hidden and could perhaps have been recovered if he had been interrogated.

Many of his supporters were also killed execution style while in custody of the Libyan rebels. It seems the new boss is as bad as the old boss in that regard.

20,000 shoulder mounted surface to air missiles are missing from Libyan arsenals. That is a lot of commercial airlines etc. at risk now.

Hillary now fancies herself a conquering Caesar with her lame pronouncement: “We came, We saw, He died.” This boasting was for a military operation we were supposed to be staying out of.

Islamists are now in charge in Libya and Sharia law will be in force. The Arab Spring is apparently another name for the rise of radical Islam in the modern world. In the boiling pot of the Middle East, radical Muslims are rising to the top like scum as they kill their competitors. In the case of Libya, they couldn’t even wait for the war to end before they were involved in internecine killing.

The whole thing was a disgusting display of self-sabotage and a waste of our military and financial resources to meddle on behalf of the wrong side. We are going to be paying in blood and treasure for that wag the dog for decades to come. I hope the next time a commercial airline is brought down, people will remember and thank Obama and Hillary and her “smart power” management of the State Department.

Fast and Furious Favors (with new information added)

October 20, 2011 8 comments

The evidence is mounting that the Fast and Furious gun giveaway was orchestrated and/or initiated from the top of the Obama administration. Forbes Magazine is calling it “Obama’s Watergate.”  Are we to believe that they gave away enough guns to equip a small army of narcoterrorists out of a simple error? We would have to be pretty gullible to believe that.

We have to ask just what they intended to achieve by doing this. It was a truly extravagant gift to the Sinaloa Federation Cartel. It was not just expensive in tax dollars; it was expensive in political capital, and it was so close to the 2012 election.

People don’t give such expensive things away for nothing. The Obama people must have expected something in return.

Consider the fact that Eric Holder, the Attorney General, and the Obama Administration has a long and continuing pattern of giving gifts to the Sinaloa Cartel:

Preserving Open Smuggling Routes: Remember when Arizona sought to enforce its own borders? Eric Holder sued to keep Arizona from identifying and arresting illegal immigrants. All of Mexican side of the border with Arizona is controlled by the Sinaloa Cartel. Their territory reaches from Texas to Arizona. Blocking Arizona’s border enforcement was a very generous gift for the smugglers of Sinaloa.

Just this July the Obama Administration signed a deal with Mexico to allow free access of Mexican trucks to American highways. That would certainly make it easier for Sinaloa to deliver drugs to multiple points in the American heartland. Trucks are set to roll from Mexico into the US without being searched within days. Even Democrat Teamster Jim Hoffa has fought against this. Thus the Obama Administration is selling out a vital part of its own base for the benefit of the Sinaloa cartel.

Removing “Legitimate” Competition: An even more striking favoritism has appeared concerning medical marijuana. Holder’s Justice Department has turned a blind eye to California medical marijuana production for over 2 years. Marijuana production has been a major growth industry in California since the legalization of medical marijuana. Hydroponic suppliers have been popping up all over, and warehouse owners are besieged from rental requests from growers. The industry is now up to 1.5 billion dollars and involves shipping to users in many states.

Not surprisingly, the IRS recently levied large taxes on growers, claiming that since growing marijuana is a federal crime, none of the business deductions related to production are deductible. It was a major new source of federal tax revenue. However a few weeks later, in a move that surprised Democrats nation-wide, Holder’s Justice Department ordered California growers to shut down in 45 days or have their assets and any real estate being used seized. Apparently both the IRS and the Justice Department were ordered to shut down the California marijuana industry regardless of the fiscal or political cost.

Marijuana users are major supporters of the Democrats and this was a shocking betrayal to them. It was also a major loss of tax revenue. It was, however, a great gift to the Sinaloa cartel. Mexican production of marijuana has more than doubled since 2005, with the Mexican Government reducing eradication efforts. The “legitimate” California marijuana industry was competition. (Hat tip: Arty)

Blocking Prosecution of Affiliated Gangs: The Justice Department’s head, Eric Holder, blocked prosecution of baton wielding Black Panthers for voter intimidation. The US Commission on Civil Rights wrote to Holder inquiring about the “broad culture of hostility to race-neutral enforcement of the civil rights laws; a pattern of harassment and intimidation against those who work on suits in which the defendants are racial minorities; and instructions from a political appointee that basic voting rights laws will not be enforced against racial minorities during this administration.” Having such a minority immunity policy from the top is a great advantage to criminal gangs who in turn work with or for the Sinaloa Cartel.

Holder also referred to African-Americans as “my people” in a press conference. Apparently Holder’s loyalties are more for minority gang members than the American people he was appointed to protect. We must ask who our Justice Department is really working for.

The Obama Administration was not the only one to do favors for Sinaloa. The Bush Administration was also very helpful. If anyone was aware of Sinaloa it would be a former governor of Texas. However, Bush infuriated his own base by allowing malicious prosecution of Border Patrol agents and making a deal with Sinaloa.

Immunity for Sinaloa Cartel members and Unreasonable Prosecution of Border Patrol Agents: The influence of Sinaloa Cartel was well known at the time of the prosecution of Ramos and Compean. The Federal prosecuting Attorney Johnny Sutton withheld evidence from the court to protect a drug trafficker and allowed him to take the Fifth in giving testimony against USBP agents at the trial. The Justice Department brought in another USBP Officer, Rene Sanchez, as a friend of the court as a character witness for the trafficker. It was absurd favoritism for a member of the Sinaloa cartel. The net effect was to intimidate all Border Patrol agents from doing their job. This was done the same year that DEA made a deal with the Sinaloa cartel to allow trafficking into the US in exchange for info on other cartels. (Hat Tip: MDA)

According to the President of Mexico when an illegal alien is discovered committing a criminal act, it is US policy to give them a free trip back to Mexico with no trial.  Thus if any drug dealers of Sinaloa are caught, they are taken back to the Sinaloa controlled border of Arizona/Mexico and let go, no matter how many times they are caught doing illegal acts for Sinaloa or their criminal gang.  They cannot hold or prosecute them in Mexico for crimes allegedly committed with no conviction in the US.

There was House testimony  last week that ICE agents were ordered to let illegal aliens go if they do not have a prior criminal conviction.  That includes potential terrorists without a record, or who carry no identification or false identification from “nations of interest” such as Iran.  At least 28 in 2009 and 2001 were from Iran.

The Obama Administration has done a lot for the Sinaloa Cartel. What is this Sinaloa Cartel that owes so much to the policies of the Obama Administration?

Sinaloa is the most powerful drug cartel in not only Mexico, but the world. They have been accused of successfully corrupting the current Mexican government as evidenced by the low arrest numbers for Sinaloa members and the reduction in drug eradication efforts in Mexico. Their primary focus has been the United States, but their operations reach into 47 countries throughout the Americas and Europe.

They smuggle and distribute cocaine from Columbia, marijuana, methamphetamine and heroin into the US. Sinaloa transports cocaine from South America to Guatemala and through Mexico into the US to distribution cells in California, Arizona, Texas, Chicago, and New York. They have been branching out into people and gun smuggling as well. Sinaloa has worked primarily with the most ruthless gangs in the US: MS-13 and the Mexican Mafia. The gangs affiliated with Sinaloa alsoinclude more than half of the major gangs in the US: 18th Street, Black Guerilla Family, Gangster Disciples, Bloods, Florencia 13, Hells Angels, Latin Kings, Norteños, and the Sureños.

“In 2009, midlevel and retail drug distribution in the United States was dominated by more than 900,000 criminally active gang members representing approximately 20,000 street gangs in more than 2,500 cities. Mexican DTOs (Drug Trafficking Organizations) increased their cooperation with U.S.-based street and prison gangs to distribute drugs. In many areas, these gangs were using their alliances with Mexican DTOs to facilitate an expansion of their midlevel and retail drug distribution operations into more rural and suburban areas.”

According to the President of Mexico when an illegal alien is discovered committing a criminal act, it is US policy to give them a free trip back to Mexico with no trial.  Thus if any drug dealers of Sinaloa are caught, they are taken back to the Sinaloa controlled Arizona/Mexico border and let go, no matter how many times they are caught doing illegal acts for Sinaloa or their criminal gang.

There was House testimony last week that ICE agents were ordered to let illegal aliens go if they do not have a prior criminal conviction.  That includes potential terrorists without a record, or who carry no identification or false identification from “nations of interest” such as Iran.  At least 28 in 2009 and 2001 were from Iran.

What favors might the Obama Administration expect for their investment? There are several things that are specialties for the Sinaloa Cartel. Consider the following hypothetical possibilities:

1) The most immediate payback would be for Sinaloa to help finance the DNC and Obama’s campaign for 2012. Since many of his 2008 big Wall Street donors are bailing, he may claim raising one billion from 50 million regular Americans sending $20 checks. If Sinaloa is underwriting Obama’s billion-dollar campaign it is easily laundered when the gov’t helps run the laundry. (Hat Tip: Jack) Remember that in 2008 Obama won in part due to many small and untraceable donations that appeared to be from outside the US.

2) Perhaps it is personal. There could simply be payoff for highly placed Obama officials. The amount of money available from the cartel is astounding. $378.4bn was found to be laundered by Wachovia alone. Furthermore, the Cartel is expert at laundering payments so it would be difficult to uncover. There could also be threats of violence against family and opportunities for blackmail of politicians. Sinaloa has both carrots and sticks to get what they want from individuals.

3) Enforcement and extortion are also potentially useful favors for the Obama officials. Need to discourage someone from running for office? Need to discourage someone from voting for a bill? Do the legislators have families they care about? Threats and actual violence expertise might be brought to bear, and with few detectable connections to the people ordering it. Just this week Vice President Biden threatened or warned that “Murder will continue to rise, rape will continue to rise, all crimes will continue to rise,” if the Democrats agenda isn’t passed. Perhaps he is right. At what point does a warning become a threat?

4) Criminal community organizing is something that could be useful. Organizing secure networks for criminal activity is something the cartel has decades of experience in. Acorn’s quasi-criminal activity is just the beginning of what is possible. Voter intimidation or election interference needed? No problemo. Is a riot needed? Having hundreds of thousands of violent and amoral criminals at one’s direction in American cities and suburbs could be useful.

To a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. Similarly, every problem Obama has looks like a it needs a community organizing. Hundreds of thousands of organized violent criminals makes for a lot of community organization.

5) Smuggling Islamic terrorists over the borders is another speciality that could be useful in certain political scenarios. Hundreds of aliens from “special interest countries” including Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, and Pakistan are known to be smuggled across the border each year. Iran recently paidMexican drug cartels to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the US. A book celebrating suicidemartyrs was found in the desert along a smuggling route. (Hat tip: John in China.) There is always the argument that Obama wants to destroy America (or at least parts of America) from within by a concerted assault on our military effectiveness, economy, and culture. Enabling a drug cartel like Sinaloa would fit with that theory.

Giving favors to organized crime is not a recent invention of the Democrats. It is reminiscent of the Kennedy era, where JFK won Chicago via vote fraud, and both JFK and Bobby Kennedy (the US Attorney General at the time) were such good friends of Sam Giancana, the biggest Mafia godfather in Chicago, that Giancana allowed both to share one of his girlfriends. Why? Because the Justice Department was targeting Giancana’s mob competitors. This also is reminiscent of Al Capone’s Chicago operation. Capone paid the local Feds to go after his bootlegger competition while leaving his gang alone. (Hat tip: Skye)

One alternative theory has been floated about the Fast and Furious debacle is that it was a plot to increase gun violence and then get guns banned. That theory is easily dismissed. If the Obama Administration wanted to increase gun violence, all it would take is a call to the Black Panthers or other inner city gang contacts. They owe brother Obama a favor. It is far too easy for them or other similar groups to simply commit more gun violence. Furthermore, the guns of Fast and Furious and their related violence were primarily destined for Mexico, not America. The Second Amendment assault theory is not a reasonable explanation – especially when considered in context.

The simple and direct answer is that Fast and Furious was done by the Obama Administration, as an established pattern of behavior to assist the Sinaloa Cartel. The more difficult and interesting question is what gift in return does the Obama Administration get out of it. The Obama Administration is paying heavily by stabbing Democrat constituencies in the back right before an election. Thus the payback from Sinaloa is also likely to be before the election.

The Obama Administration has given high powered assault weapons and other guns to the largest drug cartel in the world. Holder’s Justice Department has sued to keep the US border with Sinaloa porous. Obama’s IRS and Justice Departments have shut down the legal competition to Sinaloa. Obama’s Administration has broadly blocked prosecution of the criminal gangs that are the affiliates of Sinaloa throughout the US. Obama’s Administration has made it easier for Sinaloa smuggling trucks to travel unimpeded and un-inspected throughout the US.

Plenty of guns, free travel of trucks across the border, legal immunity to members of the drug distribution system, IRS and DOJ attacks on their legitimate drug competitors, intimidation and humiliation of Border Patrol agents… What more could Sinaloa ask for? The Obama administration has given them everything they could need. What is the Obama Administration getting in return?

Perspective on our relationship with China

October 17, 2011 Leave a comment

Governments can have different and rapidly diverging morals, incentives, and interests from their citizens. This divergence is all the more important as governments around the world run out of money to placate their citizens. This is setting the stage for upheaval, from the Tea Party to the Arab Spring.

Here are brief excerpts from a thread at Free Republic and an article at the Houston Chronicle. They offer some insight on the complicated relationship between China and the US.

Thank-you Cards from China Pose Mystery for WWII Vets
Thursday, October 13, 2011 | LINDSAY WISE Posted on October 15, 2011 7:46:20 AM PDT by correctthought

The postcard arrived in Ed Denzler’s mailbox in Pearland last month, a mystery from his past nestled among the routine bills and coupons.

Addressed in neat block letters to Denzler, the handwritten note reads, in English: “It takes a strong man to save himself, a great man to save another. Thank you for 1944. From China.

Some Internet sleuthing by a reporter revealed a plausible answer to Denzler’s postcard puzzle: A Shenzhen Daily article published online reported that students at Shenzhen Foreign Languages School in China’s Guangdong Province had decided to write postcards to thank U.S. veterans for helping China resist the Japanese invasion. The students came up with the idea this summer after visiting an exhibit of World War II photographs, according to the article.”

(Excerpt) Read more at Houston Chronicle.

“I don’t know if this even applies, but a few years ago I was asked to drop a PRC Chinese engineer off at a hotel in Dallas. We got to chatting in the car and he told me he was thirty-five years old and had lived in in the PRC (Communist China) his entire life. Being a WWII history buff, I asked him if knew what the AVG (Flying Tigers Group) was. Chinese folks always refer to the Flying Tigers as the American Volunteer Group!!! He immediately responded with, “Oh, you mean General Chenault’s P-40 fighter aircraft, Flying Tigers.” I was taken back, and said to him, “How do you know about the AVG, you were not even born at that time?”. He answered that the history of the AVG is taught in Chinese schools, so that China will never forget the contibutions and sacrifices of these young American volunteer aviators prior to the opening of WWII!! He said many Chinese citizens were tortured and slain protecting the life line to freedom provided by these young American volunteers. He said the blood of those Americans that lost their lives protecting China is forever imbedded in the soil and earth of the very being of China!!! The AVG still is alive and well in many Chinese thoughts, he said!!!”

“When the people of Communist China after 63 years of communist rule show greater gratitude for the sacrifices made by American soldiers for Freedom than has ever been offered by the current POTUS it is a day that makes you want to cry, but also want to cheer.”

“The story of the 1st AVG is one of the most fascinating aspects of US WWII aviation.One of my favorite reads is about how dozens of Chinese farmers dove into the water with one bamboo pole at a time to place under the wings of a ditched P-40, to refloat and salvage it.”

This book is about the best:

“Chenault of China”

http://www.amazon.com/Flying-Tiger-Chenault-China-Robert/dp/B00113542Y/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1318693591&sr=1-1

“Tells me something about China, that if you help them, they won’t forget.Sometimes I wonder how much of an enemy China truly is…..”

“China” as in who specifically?

“The people of China may not forget but be assured, the Chinese government is not the people and will forget such for political and ideological expediency.”

“Most [Chinese] were stunned that I would be right there in the middle of a job helping them in any capacity that I could.Ditto Russia, when I visited back in ’97, most Russians were amazed that I would pitch right in and help in absolutely any way I could. One remarked, “No matter what a bigshot an American is, they all are willing to take up any hammer or any cleaning cloth and help! I think that’s why your country got so great.”
“It truly amazes me how much the people and governments, worldwide, are diverging in desires and ethics.”

Cain’s Resume

October 13, 2011 Leave a comment

We are considering hiring someone to be President of the United States, so let’s look at Herman Cain’s resume:

“Herman Cain may be the most “experienced” candidate to run in the last half century, just not the most experienced politician.

•Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics.

•Master’s degree in Computer Science.

•Mathematician for the Navy, where he worked on missile ballistics (making him a rocket scientist).

•Computer systems analyst for Coca-Cola.

•VP of Corporate Data Systems and Services for Pillsbury (this is the top of the ladder in the computer world, being in charge of information systems for a major corporation).

•All achieved before reaching the age of 35.

Since he reached the top of the information systems world, he changed careers!

•Business Manager. Took charge of Pillsbury’s 400 Burger King restaurants in the Philadelphia area, which were the company’s poorest performers in the country. Spent the first nine months learning the business from the ground up, cooking hamburger and yes, cleaning toilets. After three years he had turned them into the company’s best performers.

•Godfather’s Pizza CEO. Was asked by Pillsbury to take charge of their Godfather’s Pizza chain (which was on the verge of bankruptcy). He made it profitable in 14 months.

•In 1988 he led a buyout of the Godfather’s Pizza chain from Pillsbury. He was now the owner of a restaurant chain. Again he reached the top of the ladder of another industry.

•He was also chairman of the National Restaurant Association during this time. This is a group that interacts with government on behalf of the restaurant industry, and it gave him political experience from the non-politician side.

Having reached the top of a second industry, he changed careers again!

•Adviser to the Federal Reserve System. Herman Cain went to work for the Federal Reserve Banking System advising them on how monetary policy changes would affect American businesses.

•Chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank. He worked his way up to the chairmanship of a regional Federal Reserve bank. This is only one step below the chairmanship of the entire Federal Reserve System (the top banking position in the country). This position allowed him to see how monetary policy is made from the inside, and understand the political forces that impact the monetary system.

After reaching the top of the banking industry, he changed careers for a fourth time!

•Writer and public speaker. He then started to write and speak on leadership. His books include Speak as a Leader, CEO of Self, Leadership is Common Sense, and They Think You’re Stupid.

•Radio Host. Around 2007—after a remarkable 40 year career—he started hosting a radio show on WSB in Atlanta (the largest talk radio station in the country).

He did all this starting from rock bottom (his father was a chauffeur and his mother was a maid). When you add up his accomplishments in his life—including reaching the top of three unrelated industries: information systems, business management, and banking—Herman Cain may have the most impressive resume of anyone that has run for the presidency in the last half century.”
