In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


White House to Host Home-Grown Terrorist Summit

Well, that’s not exactly what they call it, but that’s what it is. From the White House this morning:

On February 18, 2015, the White House will host a Summit on Countering Violent Extremism to highlight domestic and international efforts to prevent violent extremists and their supporters from radicalizing, recruiting, or inspiring individuals or groups in the United States and abroad to commit acts of violence, efforts made even more imperative in light of recent, tragic attacks in Ottawa, Sydney, and Paris.

Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) efforts rely heavily on well-informed and resilient local communities. Boston, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis-St. Paul have taken the lead in building pilot frameworks integrating a range of social service providers, including education administrators, mental health professionals, and religious leaders, with law enforcement agencies to address violent extremism as part of the broader mandate of community safety and crime prevention . . . The summit will include representatives from a number of partner nations.

So, this is a good idea. President Obama is correctly noting the increasing danger of home-grown radicals. Of course, the announcement nowhere mentions Islamist radicalism, which is in fact the threat. I mean, if there’s going to be a discussion panel of rooting out potential terrorists attending Reform Jewish Hebrew day schools, then they’re wasting their time.

In Europe, it’s not clear how this works, with Muslim states and Sharia law already established within these nations. In the video below, terrorism expert Steve Emerson says that Europe may be finished. And no doubt, Sharia law will be coming here, unless the problem has a name.

Still, Obama is to be applauded for focusing on the threat from within in this country and among our allies.

  1. “Still, Obama is to be applauded for focusing on the threat from within in this country and among our allies.”

    No. It’s about his being the Supreme Community Organizer. If he gave a damn about terrorism, he’d have told Kerry to stop off in Paris between his trip from Germany to India.

    1. I will NEVER applaud Obama.
      Have to strongly disagree Keith.
      Mandy, Holder is there because the men were black.
      At least that is what I can determine from the photos I’ve seen.
      Hopefully the real leaders over there will dismiss him for the sniveling racist that he is.

        1. I stand corrected Mandy.
          Thank you Ma’am.
          Skin color or nationality never made any difference to me.
          Ideology however does.
          Christians and Jews and Hindu people are not threatening Muslims,….radical Muslims are threatening us.
          Problem is that the Muslims that try to stand against the radicals are annihilated.

      1. AFVet,
        “Kill them all, let Allah sort them out.” :-)

        Dont you USAF guys have some good ole B-52s to CARPET BOMB these muslim barbarians…?
        I know my boys in the USN on SSBNs have a few spare Trident II (D5) to use to turn everything East of Jerusalem/West of India into a “glass parking lot”

        1. Yeah we still fly BUFF, and B-1’s and B-2’s.
          The problem Spook is they are like cockroaches,…hiding within villages among innocent people.
          Our troops on the ground have said that they can’t ID the enemy because they blend into the populace.

          Sure, between the Air Force and the Navy we could absolutely level it.
          It would look like Dresden in WW2.
          Consider this,…..
          What if the Marines or the Army drove tanks in there and just started shooting at anything that moved ?

          It would get their attention would it not ?

          What we are seeing now are surgical strikes using drones and manned aircraft, trying to stop IS.
          IMO,…they were a bit late on the jump.

          We had satellite images of IS advancing through the desert and nobody did anything.
          That was an easy target, they could have been destroyed by using the air power that we have.

          Why they allowed them to establish a nest I will never know.

        2. Thats the only way. Thats what we had to do in Japan to the Komakazi pilots who were like the homacide bombers of today. Thats the only way, otherwise, many more people will lose their lives because of these blood thirsty animals. They must be dealt with and we need a good American President who will be there for us. This one is completely in a state of manic unreality, constantly wants to hurt America and its people, a nut who is now having FUN controlling us with his evil power. The Republicans do nothing, humor him, make deals with him, funding him for his insane medical care that will kill a lot of people, old people, millions more babies will be murdered by abortion. Obama has to go, he’s the worst for the country.

      2. What has legal beagle has to do with it. Holder will probably preach tolerance and civil law to apply to Islamic terrorists. NSA chief -even though he is black- would have been appropriate rep. for Obama administration.

  2. Weasel Zippers has a linked Breitbart story re Holder’s interview on CNN. The second you finish reading this, you’ll see that Obama’s Summit is 10000% meaningless. Photo Op City.

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Attorney General Eric Holder was asked if there are any terrorist sleeper cells currently in the Untied States being monitored.

    He assured the host “we don’t stereotype,” but he added “we are constantly looking at those people.”

    Holder said, “Well, one of the things that we are constantly doing is looking at the body of people who we are concerned about in the United States, use legitimate means to monitor their activities. We don’t stereotype, but we are constantly looking at those people to make sure that we are doing all the things that we can to keep the American people safe.”

    1. Sure, he’s looking at the Tea Party and radical Presbyterians. Nobody much else. They come and go through our porous border anyway.

  3. Hmmm.. where will he hold it. Florida?? Arizona?? New Mexico?? Does it have a place he can fly to and golf??

    However I am betting maybe Camp David. We need a betting pool.

    1. How about Karachi, Pah-Ee-Stahn? We could get input from our enemies, oops, I mean Those With Whom We May Differ. And perhaps learn to be more understanding of their motivation.

  4. Obama will accomplish nothing concerning the prevention of terror against the United States. He will create more bureaucracy, spend more money, cipher off money to his non profits and sycophants. This is just a hollow gesture to make sure he remains in the spotlight.

    I expect nothing — nothing from this man — that would be good for America.

    And I am sick to death of his stubborn pouting about islamic terrorists. He is such a child.

    1. And I am pretty sure that Holder and Obama will include conservatives as a suspect group. Wherever this government sticks its nose it benefits the socialist left.

        1. Annie, according to Holder that would follow under his comment:

          “Well, one of the things that we are constantly doing is looking at the body of people who we are concerned about in the United States, use legitimate means to monitor their activities. We don’t stereotype, but we are constantly looking at those people to make sure that we are doing all the things that we can to keep the American people safe.”

          Fits doesn’t it ..

        1. I look at it this way Ok Lady.
          Bring it Obama.
          We’re on to you and you are becoming more and more humorous as the days go by.
          The problem that you have is that the American People have awakened to the fact that you want to destroy our Country.

          We have also discovered that we can select a congress and we can demand that they truly represent their constituents.

          So Barry,….you go boy.
          We are watching you.
          And so is the congress.

          1. Are you calling Obama a boy! You will be classified as racist. You will be audited for tax evasion. Holder will be watching you for civil right violation of your President.

  5. Ok, so now we call it CVE. It looks like BO has used his pen and phone to officially removed the word Terrorist” from his speech writing and press release list, not to and include all govt policy and procedures. Counter Terrorism is now termed Counter Violent Extremism, with all the PC and Touchy Feely fun that can be applied in pandering to them.

    SO glad I am not longer working in that area.

    1. Thanks for pointing that out. It fits right in with his and other Progs’ insistence that Muslim terrorists are wrong about the Koran, that Islam is the Religion of Peace.

  6. So Obama will focus on Tea Party thinkers, returning Veterans, Bible believers, Republicans and legal gun owners. To him, all of the aforementioned not radical Muslims, are the real enemies.

    1. And he is correct in assessing that they are his enemies.
      We never sought out Obama, he sought us out.
      You pick a fight,….better be able to win it.
      The worst two years of Barrys life is looking right at him.

    2. Remember his comment on the campaign trail about
      “bitter people who cling to their guns and religion” ?
      So many warning flags where there but the masses were tricked by this silver tongued racist and his minions.

  7. “Still, Obama is to be applauded for focusing on the threat from within in this country and among our allies.”

    Sorry to disagree with you, Keith. But, imo, Obama is the one solely responsible for the problems here and abroad. No need to repeat the list of his epic failures in foreign policy….we are now watching them play out in living color. Two more years is an eternity with this psychopath! Hope we survive!

  8. This is just a rehash of crap from 2011: Empowering Local Partners to Prevent Violent Extremism in the United States (National Strategy for Empowering Local Partners).

    1. Regardless of the priorization of the threat from al-Qaeda’s ideology, both the strategy and SIP are geared towards all types of extremism without focus on a particular ideology.

  9. Hussain Obama will not look at Islamists that have pledged to kill US citizens. It would be Politically Incorrect to use facts. At this very moment, he refuses to go to Paris and stand side by side with other national leaders against violent Muslims.

        1. I would rather CNN do a show about that ring issue, instead of having an episode the have scheduled about a trial we had years ago. Had to do with a wife getting killed.

  10. Couple of points:
    1. Europeans are already planning a “global security summit” on the Jihadist movement (under auspices of the EU), and have intensified their efforts in recent days. The Bam’s a day late and a dollar short. I think Obama wants to have a summit in the US to more easily slip into the meetings the Muslim Brotherhood people he has placed in Homeland Security.

    2. Sending Holder as the US rep to Paris is a classic Obama move to shove his finger in the eyes of the European leaders. Holder’s law firm provided 3,000 hours (as of 2012) of pro bono legal assistance to free the killers in Guatanamo, who quickly rejoined the jihadist movement to continue their rampage on Western civilization. Don’t think for a second the European leaders don’t know about that.

    1. Both of your points are right on target.
      Lil Barry is trying to grab the spotlight again ahead of the world leaders that are the adults in the room.

      1. Yep. The White House would have been further ahead if they had hired the Obama impersonator on Saturday Night Live and sent him instead of Holder to Paris. Everybody would have had a few laughs and no one would have missed the real Bam.

      2. I agree with AFVet. Expect I don’t recall the issue of him slipping in the M. Bro. into HS. When did that happen? It just does not stop. Every single day, sometimes several times a day, a find out information that blows my mind. (Sorry expression from yrs. ago).
        I mentioned in an earlier thread all people Hol. I would love to listen to a local radio station in Paris, discussing and/or debating that issue. I just found out as well. They didn’t send the Ambassador to France either.

        1. This has been going on for years. CAIR’s leaders should be in prison for funding jihad against Israel and Egypt, among other places. And, in a sane world, John Esposito would be begging on the street instead of taking money from Saudi Arabia.

  11. “Still, Obama is to be applauded for focusing on the threat from within this country and among our allies.”

    Keith, you can’t really believe Obama’s “Countering Violent Extremism” summit has anything to do with Islam. Another absolutely fake and cowardly way of avoiding the real terrorists and pulling the wool over the eyes of Americans by pretending he is interested in eliminated the real threat to humanity which is the religion of Islam.

    Considering the fact Obama believes the only real terrorists are Americans who believe in God and in Constitutional rights, and the fact he has used almost every government agency to punish those who oppose his dictatorship, this new call for a summit on “violent extremism” is an obvious sham.

      1. and Holder says that in looking for sleeper cells we will “not stereotype.” So most likely no investigation of blacks, Muslims, Somalis etc. or any of the Obama base .

        And in not stereotyping that means tea party, conservatives — fair game.

    1. I could have sworn the meetings had already been held. If he was having a meeting, yes with whom? All the leaders were walking arm and arm.

      1. Brad Thor, one of my favorite authors, has a great tweet on Weazel Zippers:
        Reagan at the Berlin Wall next to the Unity Rally front row with a big empty chair.

  12. Government prepares Internet Speech Crackdown.
    We forcefully noted the need for greater cooperation with Internet companies to guarantee the reporting and removal of illegal content the makes apologies or promotes Viol. or hate. said a French Interior minister. The security summit to be held in WA next month.
    The Paris attack will be used to impose new and more draconian legislation over FREE SPEECH and the right to communicate without interference by the state.
    Now can someone assure me if I hate beets, I am not going to get in trouble?

  13. Wouldn’t it be funny if nobody from overseas came to Obama’s February summit? A big snub deserves an even bigger one. And why the delay until February. The whole country could be on fire by then. I would like to take out the top row of teeth of the very next pundit to tell us how brilliant and exceptionally intelligent Obama is supposed to be. Our entire government is a huge joke but nobody is laughing!

    1. Giggle first sentence. I’ll continue to read your comment now.
      Your second statement, That is exactly what I was thinking!
      Once again. He is so far behind. As far as no one laughing, correct no one, except the enemy.

      What is Josh going to say about no one from U.S. showing up for the ralley? That was just stated on Fox.
      Logistics, security. Those are just two excuses they stated they may use tomorrow.

    2. As someone said here the other day, going to Paris doesn’t do HIM any good because then it can’t be ABOUT HIM. By hosting a summit that he can tout and hype, the attention is squarely back on HIM, as he demands.

  14. Osama bin Laden on the Dutch cartoons which mocked Mo in 2008:

    “If there is no check on the freedom of your words, then let your hearts be open to the freedom of our actions,” he said.

    1. Theodore van Gogh and Ayaan Hirsi Ali produced a film which criticized Islam’s treatment of women. He was killed by a Muslim in 2004 who shot him several times before he tried to decapitate him.

  15. Islamberg in New York is one place a serious seeker would look to find terrorists.

    In the Catskills Mountains of New York there is al Fuqra’s Muslim compound called Islamberg. It has been reported that non-Muslims are not allowed to enter without prior permission, which is usually not given. Although gunfire has been heard the authorities cannot enter because there is no known law being violated. As of 2002 there were a half dozen Fuqra residential compounds in rural hamlets across the country housing hundreds of members. According to intelligence sources, some of their members have been trained in the use of weapons and explosives in Pakistan.

    In York County, Texas, Sheriff Bruce Bryant said, “Islamville is not a location we just sit back and ignore.” The 34-acre site is a self-contained Islamic community. All of the residents at Islamville accept Sheikh Mubarek Ali Gilani as their leader.

        1. wow. More than I thought. And amazing that we allow this. I would cull that herd first for documents to be here. But since we allow all kinds of cults, tribes, and a “religions”….

          If we had rule of law at Justice we could get a lot of illegal and overstays out of the country. But, no…..we have Eric.

  16. Just thinking about the US virtual “no show”at the Paris March.

    Perhaps this was a way for the boy king to downplay the threat of terrorism — to say yeah, this sucks for you Europe , but here we don’t have those kinds of problems (since 9/11 and conveniently forg.etting Boston) — come on over in February and I will “lead” you out of this.

    It’s entirely possible to me that Barack Obama sees this “no show” as an arrogant win

      1. I don’t think he is deluded. I watched his facial expressions the other night when he spoke. He looks like he has serious thoughts on his mind.

  17. What the heck! ObAma team has no decency to even be present at Paris March. It is nothiing but Obama’s Muslim blood corroding his brain.


    Israeli TV: Hollande didn’t want Netanyahu at Paris march

    French President Francois Hollande did not want Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to attend Sunday’s historic march in Paris, believing the Israeli leader’s presence at the rally would be “divisive,” Israeli media reported Sunday.

    Netanyahu initially accepted Paris’s wishes and on Saturday cited security concerns to explain why he would not attend the event, which was organized in a show of solidarity and defiance after terrorist attacks in the French capital, which claimed 17 lives. Among the victims were four Jews at a kosher supermarket and a Muslim police officer.

    However, the Prime Minister changed his mind later Saturday after Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman and Economy Minister Naftali Bennett announced they would join the march, Israel’s Channel 2 news reported.

    When Netanyahu’s office told the Elysee Palace that he would be coming after all, France responded by highlighting that it was extending an invitation to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, according to the report. The French government also announced a planned meeting between Hollande and Abbas Saturday night.

    The Israeli Prime Minister’s Office did not respond to a request for comment on the report

  19. It’s good to see there’s nothing important going on in the world so our PO(t)(u)S can spend his day tomorrow talking about identity theft and then taking selfies with basketball players:

    Mark Knoller @markknoller • 51 minutes ago
    Tomorrow at the WH: Pres Obama begins another week of previewing his State of the Union agenda.

    Mark Knoller @markknoller • 49 minutes ago
    At @FTC tomorrow, Pres Obama unveils “next steps” in efforts to expand cyber security and combat consumer identity theft.

    Mark Knoller @markknoller • 48 minutes ago
    In the afternoon tomorrow, Pres Obama hosts congratulatory event for 2014 NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs.

  20. I’ve said it for years now. Muslims own Obama. I don’t know how yet and I hope to live long enough for the truth to be discovered. I suspect that in his first campaign, when they lifted the restrictions off of online campaign contributions — money for foreign muslim governments poured in.

    His bow to the King of Saudi Arabia was a bow of gratitude and fealty.

  21. How difficult would it be to round up 3.5M Americans to march down Pennsylvania Ave protesting the domestic terrorist in the WH? We need to smoke this guy out!

  22. Applauded? No way. He is a complete lazy, incompetent fool, Coward wouldn’t go to Paris, too lazy again. Impeach, impeach, impeach, Other fool s are Republicans, humoring this evil “president” funding his evil projects. “He who hesitates is lost”. Government as we knew it is lost. Its made up of politicians who are only concerned about money and power. America is over as we knew it, it is now made up of anti-American politicians, large portions of the country that can’t speak English, Muslims who will not interact with other Americans, they only live here to make us all Muslims and soon by force, unless we elect a real American President who has the courage and integrity that we so need to keep our country American and safe, build up our military as Obama has fired most of the military to keep us weak.

  23. Sharia is already trying to gain a foothold. Only through the efforts of Super Patriots like Bridget Gabriel is the battle in the courts being waged. Several states now have laws prohibiting the intrusion of Sharia in our land. Check out her site, Act for America.

  24. Hi, I do believe this is an excellent blog. I stumbledupon iit ;) I am
    going to revisit yet again since I bookmarked it. Money and freedom is the greatest way tto
    change, may you be rich and continue to help others.
