Man-Made Global Warming E-Mails

Amazingly, the Climate Alarmists have now inconveniently "lost" the primary data they used to "Cook" "Calculate" their climate models.........

Armistice Day - Veterans Day - Surender Day ?

Hostilities Ceased!

At the 11th hour, on the 11th day, of the 11th month in 1918, leaders of several countries sat down and signed an armistice - a treaty to cease warfare, and put an end to World War I.  The following year in 1919, began an ongoing commemoration of that event in the United States and across the many other countries who had participated in that war.   In 1954, President Eisenhower signed a Bill changing the name of the holiday to Veterans day in order to honor the memory of all those veterans who had served this nation in all its wars. We will celebrate that event tomorrow, thanking and and honoring all those brave men and women who have served this country in military uniforms.  We thank you for your courage, thank you for your honor, and thank you for your service to this nation and the world.

But, unfortunately, this years celebration and remembrance will be muted, following so closely on the heels of the tragic murder of 13 or our military members at Ft. Hood last week.  And, unless some significant action is taken, may become remembered as "Surrender Day".

The tragedy at Ft. Hood points out the difference between 1918 and 2009.  Hostilities then were between organized, uniformed national military forces; today our war is waged against an amorphous global  religious movement of Islamic assassins (ironically the term assassin is associated with the name of the "alleged" murderer Nidal Hasan), who wear no uniform, are not necessarily associated with any particular nation-state, are not necessarily centrally organized, and who are usually self-nominating.

When I was growing up, my Dad had a hand carved set of brushes on top of his dresser that were a gift from his brother who was killed when his ship was sunk in the Pacific during WWII.  The brushes were mounted behind a wooden statue of the three monkeys that represented  "See No Evil", "Hear No Evil", and "Speak No Evil".

My brothers and sisters and I were frequently admonished to follow their moral example.  But today, it appears that our government and our military leaders are following the same precepts, but applying them in an insane way.  They refuse to acknowledge our war with Islamacists, who's main tactic is terror, instead they continue to attempt to frame it as an engagement against state-centric groups that are also geographically oriented, like the Taliban in Afghanistan or Pakistan, while avoiding the global aspect of the Islamacist objectives and actions.

Nidal Malik Hasa, the perpetrator of the atrocities at Ft. Hood, was an avowed Islamacist, who was flagrant in his prosletyzing, and condemnation of the United States military actions against the Taliban and Al Qaeda, yet the Army leadership, despite numerous warnings and complaints, apparently just like the Three Monkeys, could see no evil, hear no evil, and say nothing against Maj. Hasan.

The question is WHY?  Well, apparently the Political Correctness and the Diversity Objective virus's are running rampant in the U.S. military.  The upper echelon appears to be so spaghetti-spined, and concerned about maintaining or advancing their jobs vis-a-vis espousing politically correct positions, that they are incapable of honest, cogent and rational actions.

It appears that despite multiple reporting of Maj. Hasan's alarming and seditious comments and behavior, his superior officers were reluctant to dismis him due to fear of missing their Diversity Objectives!  His email contacts with a radical Islamcist Imam were dismissed as benign by the FBI and the DOD as far back as late last year! Maj. Hasan apparently couldn't have gotten dismissed if he walked around with a poster trying to recruit for Osama Bin Laden, which it almost seems like he did.  Even his sloppy and underachieving performance, which would have kicked any other non-Muslim out of the Army, was totally ignored by the top brass at Walter Reed Military Hospital.  Instead, like many Catholic bishops in dealing with child-molesters, they decided to wash their hands of him, and transfered him out to another Command.

There needs to be a Congressional investigation into Hasan's military career, and heads should role in the Army.....all the way up to Gen. George Casey, the Army chief of staff, who said Sunday he was concerned that "this increased speculation" about Hasan's evolving political and religious views "could cause a backlash against some of our Muslim soldiers."  Why wasn't he concerned about radical Islamacists in the Army sabotaging our Nation's military operations and killing the people whom he was entrusted to protect?

There are thousands of Muslims serving honorably in our military; there are thousands of Muslims working honorably with our military in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other countries; and there are millions or Muslims who are aligned with us across the world.  We can, and should, employ common sense and rational thought when it comes to evaluating threats, and we should banish the contaminating elements of "Political Correctness" and "Diversity Objectives" to the Hell that they belong in.

Public Optionism.....

Maybe we should have a "taste" of Obama's, Pelosi's, and Reid's Public Option before we buy it....... but then again, maybe not.  There are things that you don't have to experience in order to know that they'd be deadly.

Some things never change, and government control over citizen's lives is one of them.  Here's a lesson from 1948 that's still useful....
