Prosecutors: Fort Hood mass murderer was on jihad

Why is motive not an element in this trial? What kind of murder trial doesn’t discuss motive? Is it not an element in the trial because it shows how much the Obama administration has been lying to the American people about this jihad attack? “Prosecutors: Hasan was on jihad,” by Sig Christenson for MySa.com, August 2 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

FORT HOOD — Prosecutors Friday likened Maj. Nidal Hasanto a suicide bomber, saying he carefully researched the issue of going on jihad before an attack that left 13 people dead and 32 wounded, all but two of them soldiers.

It was the first time the government has made the allegation or cited evidence that would support the claim that Hasan sought to martyr himself at the end of the massacre.

“We believe that just like a suicide bomber, Major Hasan had no intention of leaving 5/11 alive,” Col. Steve Henricks, one of three prosecutors, said, referring to the day of the attack.

An American born of Palestinian immigrants, Hasan has told a court here that he was the gunman in the Nov. 5, 2009 rampage, and that he hoped to stop U.S. soldiers from killing Taliban insurgents, their leader Mullah Mohammad Omar and innocent Afghan women and children.

The day is often called “5/11” in the Fort Hood community.

Prosecutors have charged Hasan with 13 counts of premeditated murder. He faces another 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the worst shooting of its kind at an American military installation.

Until now, the prosecution has avoided stating a motive, but on Friday asked the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, to allow them to present witnesses and evidence that would show Hasan not only studied jihad but argued for it while pursing a master’s degree, and that he claimed U.S.-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were not justified.

State Rep Monique Davis (D-Chicago) “It’s the police killing some of these kids”

An Illinois state representative has publicly raised the possibility that Chicago police officers might be the ones responsible for the unsolved murders of black youths in Chicago.

State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago) was interviewed about Chicago crime Tuesday on WCHB-AM in Detroit.

Listen Here

“I’m going to tell you what some suspicions have been, and people have whispered to me: they’re not sure that black people are shooting all of these children,”

“There’s some suspicion–and I don’t want to spread this, but I’m just going to tell you what I’ve been hearing–they suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids.”

When WBBM asked Davis if she thinks it’s possible that police are killing children, she said, “I don’t know. I don’t know that they are, and I don’t know that they aren’t, since no one’s been arrested. We don’t know who’s doing it.”

Davis called a news conference at her South Side legislative office Friday to says that, while some of her constituents believe that, she does not, nor does she believes she owes anyone an apology.

“My community believes that,” she said. “Should I apologize for my community’s beliefs?”
.
“There’s some suspicion–and I don’t want to spread this, but….” But you did,and under the guise of concern for your community- despicable.

In a July 19 press release, Davis attempted to smooth over hard feelings by praising the Chicago police for their efforts, but she stood by her statements on the Detroit radio program.

“I’m not a detective, I’m not an investigator,” Davis said. “I said my community, many people in my community, based upon their experiences and their knowledge, believe it is possible that some of these murders are committed by our finest. Now, we can’t say that doesn’t happen.”

So black youths are killing other black youths in record numbers. The gang culture absolutely has a “snitches get stitches” mentality,
and she’s surprised that no one’s fingered anyone else in these murders?
She doesn’t know or understand her own organic demographic but feels compelled to comment on it.

Monique Davis is part of the problem, and that problem is race baiting. We’ve seen a lot of pot stirring recently, from the not so Reverend like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and political activist AG Eric Holder. Davis is absurd, inflammatory and insulting.

Next time you think, ‘I don’t like cops’ – Reblog from Wiseguy Diaries

The other day, someone whom I adore made mention to someone else how, ‘they didn’t like cops’, because they get to do things the rest of us are not privileged to do only because they’re the law.

This common paradox within our society today intrigued me to the point of wanting to talk about it in a few insignificant and meaningless words.

You know, I think I have said the same thing only because one or two cops, in my entire life, have caused me grief whether it was a ticket, ( I obviously did not deserve ), or some smart ass reply directed my way when I interfered with their presumably mundane day.  Shame on me for being so presumptuous.

Pretty petty now as I see it.  Pretty petty of me.

After the Boston bombing and seeing the mountains of videos and photos of who was running toward their possible death and those running away, one photo in particular showing an officer, defensively positioned over a fallen elderly man, who was obviously in distress, and shielding him in a firm protective stance.  This photo made me now become something of a different man.  I asked myself, ‘Which way would I run?’

DOD Holds First LBGT Pride Event in Kandahar Afghanistan -What’s wrong with this picture?

blog CollageU.S. troops deployed to Kandahar Airfield and Bagram held the first Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender Pride event to be observed in a deployed environment. Interesting…also in Kandahar troops are counseled about displaying their Christian or Jewish faith and told to be culturally sensitive to Muslims by not speaking of Christianity, Judaism or openly showing bibles.
(Is anyone missing the hypocrisy here?)
I’m so disgusted I’m almost speechless.
What happened to pride in being a Soldier, Marine, or Airman… we now have to have events espousing sexual orientation?

As a side note:Homosexuality is still outlawed under Islam and punishable by death as a Hudood crime- I’m sure the Afghan people were thrilled.

MA. State Police Appeal Clerk Magistrate’s Decision Not To Issue Criminal Complaints Against Reservoir Trespassers

Gate1

Republican – Massachusetts State police are appealing a decision by a clerk magistrate not to issue criminal complaints against the group of seven people  found trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir after hours last month.

The seven people, recent college graduates originally from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore, were found just after midnight on May 14. All said they studied chemical engineering and were at the Quabbin because it was in line with their education and career interests, state police said.

The group of five men and two women were not arrested, but were detained, interviewed and released.

They were summonsed to district court in Belchertown for a show-cause hearing for trespassing, where the clerk issued a continuance without a finding and declined to issue criminal complaints, according to David Procopio, Massachusetts State Police spokesman.

Because the trespassing happened at a “critical infrastructure key resource site,” Procopio said state police appealed the clerk’s decision, asking for judicial review.

“As far as I know, it is still awaiting judicial review,” Procopio wrote in an email.

“In our view, the clerk’s decision was contrary to our past understanding with the court, specifically, that the continuance without criminal complaints (which is how minor motor vehicle matters are generally handled) is not the resolution in cases involving violations of the Quabbin watershed rules. This has been the practice in recent years,” Procopio said.

Because the alleged trespassers are not facing any criminal charges at this time, Procopio said their names will not be released. The log from May 14 at the state police barracks at the Quabbin only shows a log entry of “trespass” at 00:30 hours with an area blacked out. State police attached to the barracks said the identifying information for the trespassers was removed from the public log by the state police media relations unit.

Further Reading:  As recently as June 6th, several locks were cut at a Massachusetts aqueduct in  Framingham, MA.

Cindy Sheehan, Pat Smith and Obama’s Media Bodyguards

cindypat-300x196Excerpted from A.J. Delgado‘s piece in Mediaite: Remember Cindy Sheehan? Sheehan lost her son, Army Specialist Casey Sheehan, in the Iraq War in 2004, became a staunch anti-war activist, and an overnight celebrity. Where Sheehan went, cameras, microphones, and fawning praise followed, breathlessly capturing her every thought on President Bush and the war. The makeshift camp she set up outside of Bush’s Crawford ranch attracted scores of (other) celebrities, journalists, and even Congressmen. Sheehan’s message was not only devoutly covered but even flattering monikers were bestowed (“the Rosa Parks of the peace movement!”) and accolades were endless.

Sheehan was given any and every platform, with the media tripping over itself, for years, to report her words.

The espoused rationale for the intense coverage was, purportedly, that this grieving mother deserved an ‘explanation’ for her son’s death. This despite the fact that, as tragic as her loss was, Sheehan’s quest was not one seeking answers, nor were there any unaddressed questions or mysteries about her son’s death – her mission was a general, common one: that of an anti-war protestor.

That same media, however, who believed Sheehan was owed an explanation, is curiously dismissive of Pat Smith. Pat Smith lost her son, Information Officer Sean Smith, in the Benghazi attack last autumn. But apart from a few scattered interviews, the mainstream media has, for months, turned its back on Smith, seemingly echoing Hillary Clinton’s “What difference does it make?!” sentiment. Far from receiving praise and encouragement, Smith, in an interview with Sean Hannity on his radio program last week, emotionally noted the efforts to silence her.

But both are grieving mothers who lost a son while he served his country abroad during a controversial event. So why the difference in treatment? Why was one mother inundated with media while the other is shunned?

Quite simply, Cindy Sheehan — slamming the “illegal and immoral” war for “oil” and comparing Bush to Hitler — was Christmas morning, every morning, for the Left.

Pat Smith, on the other hand, seeks answers surrounding the Benghazi attack. She is therefore no Christmas present – rather, she is an inconvenience that must be brushed under the rug. Unlike Sheehan, who was used as a pawn to further the Left’s narrative, Smith’s quest presents a danger to the Obama Administration’s record and image.

Make no mistake: had Benghazi occurred under a Republican administration, the media would fawn over Smith with even greater adoration than that bestowed upon Sheehan. No network, no microphone, and no camera would be closed to her. But, as Benghazi is a horrific failure on the part of President Obama and then-Secretary of State Clinton, the media has gladly employed its role as guardian of the administration (who needs the Praetorian Guard of yesteryear when we have MSNBC?), ignoring the story, ignoring Smith, even ignoring its own instinctive draw and duty to explore a story where, in stark contrast to Sheehan’s, enormous mysteries and questions loom.

CONT’D……
