Videos:UK - muslim vote to decide this election?

Much has been written about how, in the not too distant future, muslims will be a large enough segment of British society to affect every aspect of life. With the imminent election, it is now being noted that the muslim vote could decide who the next Prime Minister is.

From The Clarion Project:

Islamists demonstrate in the UK against voting in the upcoming May 7 elections.

British Politicians Woo 'Muslim Vote' With Pledges

 British Muslims — who voted overwhelmingly for Labour in the 2010 general election — could determine who will be the next prime minister. 

Thu, April 30, 2015

The leader of Britain's Labour Party, Ed Miliband, has vowed, if he becomes the next prime minister in general elections on May 7, to outlaw "Islamophobia."

The move — which one observer has called "utterly frightening" because of its implications for free speech in Britain — is part of an effort by Miliband to pander to Muslim voters in a race that he has described as "the tightest general election for a generation."

With the ruling Conservatives and the opposition Labour running neck and neck in the polls just days before voters cast their ballots, British Muslims — who voted overwhelmingly for Labour in the 2010 general election — could indeed determine who will be the next prime minister.

In an interview with The Muslim News, Miliband said:

"We are going to make it [Islamophobia] an aggravated crime. We are going to make sure it is marked on people's records with the police to make sure they root out Islamophobia as a hate crime.

"We are going to change the law on this so we make it absolutely clear of our abhorrence of hate crime and Islamophobia. It will be the first time that the police will record Islamophobic attacks right across the country."  [because of course muslims *never* attack infidels on the streets of England!  ]

Read the rest here. 

I, for one, would be quite happy if muslims chose to obey the poster above, and were no-shows at the election booth, but that's just me.

After all, is it islamophobia to point out this picture of one of the hundreds of 'demonstrations' islamists held in London?

This picture has been commonplace in England these last few years, as the islamists are very clear of their goals for the UK and the world.  Take a look at one of my least favourite people on the planet:

 Islamic flag to fly over Number 10 Downing Street - Anjem Choudary

That is from 2011 and the islamists have shown no reticence in screaming their ultimate goal from any street corner in the UK.

This insidious 'religion of pieces' has been a vocal - and very visible - part of  UK society for years and yet, they are allowed to 'protest' because of the tolerance of the very society they insist they will transform:

Back in October I wrote "Anjem Choudary proves he is still a scourge."  That was written in the wake of the very public beheading of Soldier Lee Rigby, and Choudary  usual diatribe included  "I don't feel sorry for the beheaded."

Now, in this election, Britons who reject the murderous ideology as practised by Choudary and his sycophants, MUST get out and vote for the denunciation of those whose only goal is to radically change the face of Britain.

Wake UP, Britain.

Military kids ALSO Serve


From the DoD:

Military Kids Make Parents’ Service Possible, First Lady Says

By Lisa DanielAmerican Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, April 13, 2012 – First Lady Michelle Obama highlighted the shared sacrifices of military children while meeting with the teenage daughters of service members yesterday in Jacksonville, Fla.

“On behalf of myself and my husband, I want to tell you all truly how proud we are of you,” Obama told hundreds of high school girls, along with some of their parents, who greeted her at Naval Air Station Jacksonville. “We are so proud of you.  We are inspired by you, and we are grateful for everything that you do for this country every single day.”


“When we talk about how our men and women in uniform sacrifice so much and serve this country so bravely, we’re not just talking about your parents,” Obama said. “We are talking about all of you.  We’re talking about our military kids and our military families, because we know that when your parents are called to serve, you all serve right alongside them.

The first lady recognized the girls for their frequent forced relocations and dealing with deployed parents.

“When your parents get that call to pick up and move halfway across the country, you pick up and move right alongside them,” she said. “And then, just when you finally get settled in, just when you’re feeling comfortable and make friends and start fitting in, what happens?  That call comes again, right?”...

White House under hack attack - again?

From Homeland Security News Wire:

Russian hackers gained access to unclassified White House e-mails

28 April 2015

Reports that Russian hackers gained access to unclassified e-mails to and from President Barack Obama during last October’s White House e-mail breach, are adding to concerns regarding the security of government communications systems.

According to the New York Times, Russian hackers broke into the email archives of people working in the White House who regularly exchanged correspondence with the president. The hackers were then able to read e-mails that Obama had sent and received.

“This attack is a red flag that they really need to improve their security procedures. It’s quite serious,” said Kevin Mitnick, a former hacker who is now a computer security consultant. “It’s not surprising — the government has a huge attack surface where someone can exploit the computer data through a security flaw in the unclassified system,” Mitnick added.

Cybersecurity professionals are trying to figure out how exactly hackers breached White House e-mail systems. According to the Guardian, one theory is that the attackers could have infected government staffers’ computer systems when the staffers were working off-site using external wireless networks in places such as coffee shops or their homes.

“You can compromise the system in their house, then use that to jump on to the system issued from the government,” said cybersecurity researcher John Bumgarner. “Perhaps you would springboard from the State Department email into the White House e-mail.”...

“This attack is a red flag that they really need to improve their security procedures. It’s quite serious,..."

You think???????  What happened to that whole 'reset' thing? 

Canada: New Chief of Defence Staff named

From The Globe and Mail:

New defence chief brings experience, charisma to military’s public face
Campbell ClarkOttawaApril 27, 2015
(Picture:  Global News)

He’s the first officer from the class of Kandahar to rise to lead Canada’s armed forces. And he’ll take the helm at a time when another mission, against Islamic State, is the government’s first military priority.

Lieutenant-General Jonathan Vance, a commander with experience in combat and in front of TV cameras, has officially been named the next chief of defence staff.

It was clear, though the new top general was presented in a brief photo op in the Prime Minister’s Office, why Stephen Harper has picked him: the PM highlighted the missions against Islamic State, and to reassure allies in Eastern Europe, as central to an “important time” for the Canadian Forces.

There’s little doubt Mr. Harper is leaning on Lt.-Gen. Vance’s operational experience as a combat commander, including two tours commanding troops in Kandahar, and in serving as the military’s public face for missions in Afghanistan, Libya and Iraq. Lt.-Gen. Vance has less experience with the institutional challenges the Forces face: coping with strained budgets and delayed purchases of major equipment. He’s known for charisma and a dynamic personality, for a sharp mind and for blunt talk. As head of the Forces’ Strategic Joint Staff, where he briefed Parliament and the public on the Libya mission in 2011, and then as commander of Joint Operations, where he oversaw the Islamic State mission, he’s had a more public profile and more close contact with the PM than other senior generals have had.

With the promotion of Lt.-Gen. Vance, 51, comes generational change, to those who served in the defining Canadian mission in recent decades, in Kandahar.

“This is truly the first senior commander who has been produced in the crucible of Afghanistan,” said Dr. Howard Coombs, professor of history and war studies at the Royal Military College in Kingston. “For people to excel in that environment, they had to be agile intellectually.”...

US Senate Hearing focuses on northern border security

Lawmakers want more attention to be paid to security along the northern border

27 April 2015

Over the years, concerns over U.S. border security have largely focused on the southern border, where hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants have been apprehended and millions of dollars in illegal drugs have been seized by border patrol agents. U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-New Jersey) tried to shift lawmakers’ focus toward the U.S.-Canada border at last week’s Senatehearing on border security, “Securing the Border: Understanding Threats and Strategies for the Northern Border.” At one point during the hearing, Booker focused on a ditch which separates western Washington state and British Columbia, one of many weak spots along the border. Areas like the ditch are left unguarded, making it easy for drug smugglers, terrorists, and human traffickers to cross over without detection.

The hearing last week was a fifth in a series exploring the challenges associated with U.S. entry points. Drawing attention to the security risks on the Canadian border has been a challenge. “It’s kind of the forgotten border,” said Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-North Dakota). The border is not associated with highly chared issues such as immigration, day laborers, and violent drug traffickers.

Heitkamp, who has been vocal on security concerns at the northern border, drafted two amendments during the Senate’s 2013 immigration reform debate. One amendment aimed to speed up commercial goods flowing between the two countries by allowing border patrol agents to work more closely together; another tried to ensure the northern border received adequate resources- financial and manpower- just as lawmakers flooded the southern border with more patrol agents and program funding. Neither of Heitkamp’s amendments received a vote....

There is much more here....

Pay attention, America, to the hordes of ne'er-do-wells flooding your northern border.

Omar Khadr granted bail

Omar Khadr   - sentenced to 40 years in a GITMO Military Tribunal - was granted bail in a Canadian civilian court last week:

From CBC:

Omar Khadr granted bail, but federal government to appeal

Convicted war criminal to remain at Bowden Institution in Alberta until bail conditions are set

CBC News Apr 23, 2015 
Convicted war criminal Omar Khadr, the Canadian transferred to an Alberta facility after serving time at Guantanamo Bay, has been granted bail.

Shortly after the decision was announced, the federal government said it would appeal the decision made by an Alberta judge.

Court of Queen's Bench Justice June Ross, in a 23-page decision, granted Khadr's bail request Friday morning. He will remain in custody until a May 5 hearing to set out his bail conditions.

"Even though the applicant has pled guilty to serious offences, he should be granted judicial interim release," the judge wrote, "because he has a strong basis for an appeal, and the risk to public safety is not such that it is in the public's best interest that he remain in pre-appeal detention in a manner that could render his appeal irrelevant."

Khadr's Edmonton lawyer, Dennis Edney, said the case will now go back before the courts to work out the conditions of his client's release, including where he will live and what he will do with his time. ..

Khadr may be smiling in that undated picture, but not all are as thrilled with bail being granted. If you want to get a hint how I feel about it, check out the very first link above.

US LT. COL (retired) Allen West pretty much summed up:

Canadian government about to do something DISGUSTING with this jihadi murderer

Written by Allen West on April 27, 2015

There’s not much I need to say about this story, other than I am truly disgusted.
As reported by The Stripes, “A Canadian judge on Friday ordered the release of a former Guantanamo Bay inmate while he appeals his conviction in a Washington court for war crimes, including killing a U.S. soldier. Judge June Ross said the terms of Omar Khadr’s release will be determined May 5. Canada’s government said it would appeal the order. Toronto-born Khadr is in prison in Alberta, serving out an eight-year sentence handed down by a U.S. military commission in 2010. He was convicted of five war-crimes, including throwing a grenade when he was 15 years old that killed Army Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Speer in Afghanistan during a 2002 firefight. He spent a decade in Guantanamo Bay. Khadr, now 28, agreed to a plea deal in 2010 that stipulated he serve one year of his eight-year sentence at the U.S. naval base in Cuba. He has since said he only pleaded guilty to get out of Guantanamo and be sent back to Canada. Ross said Khadr has a strong basis for appeal and keeping him behind bars would not be in the public interest.”Omar is fortunate to be back in Canada where we have real courts and real laws,” said Nate Whitling, one of Khadr’s lawyers.”

I find Mr. Whitling’s comments disrespectful, disingenuous, and denigrating to the United States of America and to all the men and women — and their families — who have lost their lives fighting against Islamic jihadism. Mr. Whitling is indicative of the yellow-backed “coexist” crowd who extends constitutional rights and privileges to non-state, non-uniform unlawful enemy combatants captured on the modern 21st century battlefield.

I don’t give a doggone how old Omar Khadr was when he made the decision to throw a grenade and kill an American Soldier, SFC Christopher Speer. If anything, Khadr deserves to die. At the very least, he should never see the light of freedom for the rest of his life — SFC Speer certainly will not. And convicted of war crimes? I suppose in the true progressive socialist mantra, “what difference at this point does it make?”

You can be sure that Allen West has much more to say on this topic, and he doesn't hold back.   GO read it all.

SFC Christopher Speer is unavailable for comment.

Khadr and his supporters may be thrilled by this latest development, but I don't believe this IS a done deal.  The fat lady ain't singing, yet.

Pay attention.

ANZAC Day Honours Gallipoli Heroes

From the BBC:

Gallipoli centenary: Australia and New Zealand mark Anzac Day
25 April 2015

Australia and New Zealand have been remembering soldiers from the two countries who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War One.

A series of events on Saturday marked the centenary of the Allied attack on the Gallipoli peninsula.

A dawn service was held at the landing. The two countries later remembered their dead at battlefield services.

More than 11,400 of Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (Anzac) troops were killed in the course of the campaign.

Australian PM Tony Abbott paid tribute to their selflessness, describing them as Australia's "founding heroes".

Anzac Day is arguably the most important national occasion for Australia and New Zealand.

Gallipoli holds a special place in Australian hearts. Many believe it was here Australians proved themselves the equal of any in the world, heralding the young nation's emergence onto the world stage....

From ABC.Net (Australia):
Gallipoli 1915: The first Anzac ashoreBy Ross Kay

In the waters off Anzac Cove in the early hours of April 25, 1915, boats carrying Australian soldiers of the 9th Battalion made their way to shore. 

At the head of boat number one was Duncan Chapman, then a lieutenant, who led his men onto the beach and became known as the first Anzac to set foot on Gallipoli.

Duncan Chapman's name is one of many on the cenotaph in Maryborough, Queensland, but a new life-size statue has been unveiled in recognition of his special place in history.

But how do we know for certain he was in fact the initial Anzac ashore?

Anecdotal stories and letters have been passed down through to Chapman's grand-nephew, Grant Cook.

"I heard a lot from my uncles about Duncan Chapman," Mr Cook said.

"I've been told that [he was the first ashore] through family over all these years. It's only the letters that he sent home that reinforce that."

One of the letters from Chapman details the dawn landing and reinforces the idea that he was recognised by Army brass to have been the first ashore.

"To me was given the extreme honour of being actually the first man to put foot ashore on this peninsula, to lead a portion of the men up the hill in that now historic charge," the letter reads....

Lest we forget those who answered the call.

Liberation of the Netherlands: Letter to Canada

From the fall of 1944 to the spring of 1945, the First Canadian Army played a major role in the liberation of the Netherlands and its people who had suffered terrible hunger and hardship under the increasingly desperate German occupiers. The warm friendship that Canada still enjoys with the Netherlands is a poignant reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by thousands of Canadians and the enduring gratitude of the Dutch in ending the reign of tyranny in their country.

Letter from Holland:
Leeuwarden, Holland
27th April, 1945

Dear Mrs. Crofts,

Our town was liberated by the Canadians on the 15th of this month. Your son Joe was with them, and he stayed with us for a couple of days and so we made friendship. I promised him to drop you a few lines just to tell you that your son was doing well, everything O.K.

We have had an awfully bad time, these five years. The Germans came here on the 10th of May 1940. Their army was then nicely equipped, and they had quite a number of planes on the Leeuwarden airodrome. When they went on the 14th inst., they had very little left, no planes, their cars riding on wood-gas, for they have been out of petrol since a long time already. That is the end of Hitler’s army.

But a lot of harm they have done here. In 1941 they started picking up all the Jews. All our Jewish friends disappeared and were sent to Poland, and Germany, most probably to be butchered there. I wonder what will come back of them, I am afraid not many.

In 1942 they started sending all our young fellows to Germany to work as slaves for them. Those who could escape were hidden by friends or family. Often the Germans entered the houses and searched for young men, bu then they were put under the floor, so that in most cases the Germans could not find any. When a German wire was cut, they let all men of the town do some watching so that no more wires should be cut. When a German was killed, they picked out a number of civilians, ten, twenty-five, and in one case even 400, and shot them. You will understand how glad we were when at the end it was all up with them, and when the Canadians arrived here we gave them a cheery welcome where ever they came...

This personal letter to a Canadian family gives insights into what war in Europe during WW2 was like for the citizens facing Nazism.    It is part of an in-depth history of Canada's role in the liberation of Netherlands, which forged close ties that remain today.

Take the time to go search the government site here, for lots of interesting and - perhaps - little known, history.

Military Children of the Year Honored

The children also Serve. It is well known that I honour ALL of our Military children, but this last week there was an official ceremony to recognise and honour some very special kids.

From DoD:
Dempsey, Leaders Honor Military Children of Year
By Shannon CollinsDoD News, Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON, April 18, 2015 – Resilience, leadership and achievement are just a few of the many traits that earned six youths acclaim from senior leaders during Operation Homefront’s 7th annual Military Child of the Year Award Gala in Arlington, Va., Thursday.

Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and keynote speaker, Jason Brown, a former professional athlete, honored the sacrifices of some 2 million military children around the world. Out of more than 500 nominations, six were chosen, representing each service branch.

“Our awardees have pursued excellence; they’ve made it a priority to serve others. They’ve inspired us. They’ve done it with character,” Dempsey said. “I’m incredibly proud and honored to be the chairman of such a fighting force with incredible military families who support them. Our winners tonight are perfect examples of the stellar quality of military kids, and we’re so fortunate to have them in our military family. This nation asks a lot of each of you, and each of you continues to prove day in and day out that you are strong, that you are resilient and you are full of love of our country and for each other.”

Brown said he was honored to speak at the event, which took place at the Ritz-Carlton hotel, and was inspired by the military children. While he has never personally served in the military, his older brother, Lester Bernard Brown II, paid the ultimate sacrifice Sept. 20, 2003, in Afghanistan, while serving in the Army....

Oklahoma City Bombing: Remember Their Names

On April 19, 1995, a truck-bomb explosion outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, left 168 people dead and hundreds more injured. The blast was set off by anti-government militant Timothy McVeigh, who in 2001 was executed for his crimes. His co-conspirator Terry Nichols received life in prison. Until September 11, 2001, the Oklahoma City bombing was the worst terrorist attack to take place on U.S. soil.

At 9:02 a.m., a rental truck packed with explosives detonated in front of the nine-story Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. The powerful explosion blew off the building’s north wall. Emergency crews raced to Oklahoma from across the country, and when the rescue effort finally ended two weeks later the death toll stood at 168 people, including 19 young children who were in the building’s day care center at the time of the blast. More than 650 other people were injured in the bombing, which damaged or destroyed more than 300 buildings in the immediate area.....

Much more here.

On this day twenty years ago, America was witness to the face of evil, the devastation of terrorism  - on home soil.

In the years since that terrible day, much has been written, and today the msm is reporting on Memorial events.

All the conspiracy theorists, and the talking head experts are rehashing the reasons behind it all, and lessons learned.  (Apparently we haven't learned much at all, and I am reminded:  those who refuse to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.)

Be that as it may,  for me, the most important to remember is those we lost.  Those innocents killed that day - whose ages ranged from 3 months to 67 years old - MUST be remembered.

Today, I urge all to pause, read the list, stop at each name, and imagine these lives cuts short.  These lives matter.
