1.) The attempt to bring the aircraft down was done on the day the West celebrates the birth of Christ. The attack was, thus not only an attack on the America, but it was an attack on the Christian faith as well. Now, America hates being thought of as a nation influenced by Christianity but clearly Muslims understand that this is a war between faiths and as difficult as it is for some of us to understand why Islam views America as “Christian” it is none the less the case that they do. The Muslim attack on America on Christmas day is proof that they were not only striking at the nation but also at what they perceive to be the nation’s faith.
2.) When the first news reports came out it was clear that the media was attempting to shield the Muslim connection. For the first 12 hours we kept hearing about the perpetrator being Nigerian but not a peep about how the Nigerian was a Muslim. This desire to tamp down the Muslim connection is consistent with the way the media covered the Muslim mass murderer who shot up the Army base in Texas. There is clearly an attempt by the media and the Obama administration to prejudice Americans against being prejudice against the faith system that is informing those who are seeking to kill them.
3.) Every time there is a terrorist attempt the consequence is to turn the screws on the American people with more and more invasive control procedures. Every time there is a terrorist attempt the consequence is that more power is ceded to the Federal Government to treat American citizens like criminals. However, at no time following a terrorist attempt does the State do anything to genuinely provide the common defense. As one obvious and glaring example, if the State was serious about catching bad guys and making air travel safe they would cease and desist with the silliness of treating a 85 year old white Caucasian grandmother as the same terror risk as a 25 year old Muslim Arab. If the State was serious about catching bad guys they would start profiling with the purpose of singling out flying Muslims for more rigorous shakedowns before boarding aircraft. It seems the only entity that ends up profiting from these failed attacks is the Leviathan State.
4.) Obama, in his nearly one year as President has seldom failed to get before a camera at every opportunity to speak his mind. On this incident though it took Barack Hussein Obama three days before he released a statement. What are we to make of this comparative silence on Barack Hussein Obama’s part? Remember this is the same guy who, after hearing about the Muslim shooting on the Texas Army base could only say, “we must not jump to conclusions.” Between that statement, and his comparative silence in this event, and the current administrations kiss butt attitude towards the Muslim world one can only conclude that our President with a Muslim name favors Muslims more than he does Americans.
5.) Janet “Butch” Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security, initially insisted that in light of the Christmas attempted bombing it could be seen that the system worked. This is like saying that a high priced security system worked because someone who just happened to be passing by tackled a departing thief as he was leaving with the loot. It is difficult to imagine Napolitano saying anything more stupid then “this attempted bombing proves the system works.”
6.) The flying public are partly to fault for allowing the state to treat them like sheep. They are not so much concerned about stopping terrorism as they are concerned about “feeling safe.” If they were concerned about stopping terrorism they would begin to demand that their representative quit with the political correctness and would likewise demand legislation to start rolling that would forbid Islamic influence in America. If the flying public were concerned about having their privacy invaded when flying they would tell the Feds to drop all the dragoonish behavior at the airports and start concentrating on those who fit a criminal profile.
