NEW JERSEY – I don’t want to sound inappropriate by quoting the girl from Poltergeist, however, many are starting to panic out about the possibility of ISIS on U.S. Soil, while others are taking a more lackadaisical stance about the potential arrival of this terrorist group.
Except, they are not on their way…they’re here…and we’ve received news tidbits about their presence all along…so no one should be doubting their arrival…because they arrived a while ago.
I can also say that I follow, in addition to news, posts on places like Facebook, where many that I know in the law enforcement community have been warning civilians to be on alert and report anything odd to local law enforcement.
I highly recommend you read this article from Robert Cubby, a retired law enforcement officer from Jersey City…a city where innocuous appearing people were those responsible for the 1993 attacks on the World Trade Center, were residents, and where they stored explosives. Law enforcement, according to Cubby was warned this August 24 to be alert for potential ISIS attacks.
“Beware America, they’re coming after us,” said Lt. General Tom McInerney (ret) to Fox News, indicating we should upgrade our alert status to DEFCON 1 (DEFCON 1 means that nuclear war is imminent and we need to be at maximum readiness for it…)…click below to view the video.
For those who are worried, you have every right to be. For those who aren’t…wake up and get worried.
Especially in light of the news that two other beheadings have taken place after the death of James Foley.
The second, was to American Journalist, Steven Sotloff.
And what about Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan who is in prison for the Fort Hood Massacre, who has written a letter to the Islamic State leaders requesting to become one of their citizens, and signing off as “SoA” or “Soldier of Allah” in his correspondence?
And what about a man who worked at the Minneapolis Airport, who died fighting for ISIS? (viewable in the video above).
Also scary, the missing Libyan jets…which also prompts my mind to ask, what happened to that Malaysian Airliner that disappeared and hasn’t been found yet…we know what happened with missing jets on 9/11/2001.
“It’s very dangerous right now,” McInerney said, and that ISIS has reach in America and in Europe.
What we fail to recognize is ISIS has been here all along, and under other names and guises…those in law enforcement that I know have said that ISIS equals Al Queda reorganized.
Generals have been telling everyone that there is severe news with ISIS and as McInerney said to Fox, these generals were “slam dunked” by the White House for their statements.
Our safety is in danger in this country, and it has been for a while…but we’ve been resting on our complacency here…allowing the enemy to infiltrate and we’ve become innocuous to it.
Seven days before his assassination, JFK said, “There’s a plot in this country to enslave every man, woman, and child. Before I leave this high and noble office, I intend to expose this plot.”
At that time, the ones looking to enslave all Americans was the Communist Party. Actually, though they proclaim freedom, the American Communist Party is still looking to do that. Today, many look back at that era in our history as a time of fear of an invisible enemy. Well, that enemy was quite visible, and again, the fact that many now are looking back and brushing off the fears of that time, are the same people now who have been allowing the enemies of our era, meaning ISIS, get a foothold on our great nation, and are brushing the thought off as imaginary.
Ayman Al-Zawahiri even recognized that in President Obama, as he was taking office. Clare Lopez, a former CIA Operations Officer, shares this is the video below, that Al-Zawahiri, who was the second in command for Al Queda in 2008, and is now the leader proclaimed that our country was facing Jihad, and that our incoming President refused to recognize it and pretended not to see it.
Communism is still our enemy, and it still exists today and the U.S. Communist Party still has a stronghold here. They even have a headquarters in New York and salaried staff. Don’t be fooled, they are still cloaked within our government, though many don’t show their faces and hide behind the major parties.
It’s the Communist Party propaganda that has softened our acceptance of what we see around us with one of the other enemies of our nation…the Jihadists. This softening has opened up the doors for them to enter.
And they have entered…some more covertly than others…some making their presence known more than others.
It’s what Lopez described as “Stealth Jihad” in 2013. Stealth Jihad includes the small yet obvious steps that Jihadists are making, as they assimilate Sharia and Caliphate right under our noses.
Lopez said that the United States is about ten years behind Europe in this arena, but it’s definitely been happening here.
I’ll give you a few examples. First, in the State of New Jersey, let’s rewind to 2009 when Judge Joseph Charles would not grant a restraining order to a woman who sought one for abuse from her Muslim husband for non-consensual sex and pinching her in the private areas of her body. Governor James McGreevey appointed the judge in 2000 and he was tenured in 2010, the same year that Governor Chris Christie re-nominated him. Charles was a Democratic Assemblyman from 1982 to 2002, then a senator from 2002 to 2003.
Charles made his decision on the case of the woman seeking the restraining order based on Sharia Law, and that in this husband’s culture in Morocco, this type of non-consensual sex was permitted because of his religious beliefs.
What this judge failed to uphold, and thankfully the State did, was the Constitution of the United States and that this is not allowed behavior and in our country it is criminal (let’s throw in the sexual assault, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and criminal restraint charges this husband also faced, and the judge’s decision failed to cover).
As Lopez perfectly iterated in the video above…the U.S. Constitution does not align with Shariah.
So here one of our judges is accepting of behaviors that Sharia Law and ISIS condone, and permitted the integration of this into America…and New Jersey no less.
A second incident recently involved a man in Garwood New Jersey who claimed he had no idea that his black flag flown in front of his home with calligraphy on the front was the same flag that the group ISIS uses to promote its cause. How can you not know? He said he has hung it in front of his house each Friday and Ramadan. According to the Washington Post, he’s now hanging a San Diego Chargers Flag (which to me is an interesting coincidence, considering that San Diego is a city where terrorists have recently been suspected to have landed). I’m honestly not buying the guy’s testimony in Garwood that he didn’t know the meaning behind this flag. There are other Islamic flags, such as the crescent moon with the star, though accordingly, some of the flags in the past for Islam had been plain black without the writing. The black flag itself has become known as the “Flag of Jihad.” How can you not know as a Muslim what the black flag means?? And if the one he was posting was a plain black one, wouldn’t that still signify a desire for Jihad?
Another incident of this involves our own President who Lopez said she viewed one of his speeches on the White House website and told the United Nations General Assembly in an address that, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”
Part of attempting to adopt Shariah is to make any criticism of Islam (which is against Islamic Law) a criminal act…is that where the United States is headed? What happened to our right to free speech, especially when Islam’s Jihadists are busy killing innocents around the world?
And of course, we’ve got the signs as well that have already been displayed in Ferguson, Missouri stating “ISIS here.” We need to take that seriously.
And why is it that Bradley aka Chelsea Manning, a known United States traitor, is ruled only with a limited prison sentence of 35, while this person is a true traitor to our country? S/he is as responsible for the deaths of all of the victims I am mentioning in this piece, as ISIS has been! This slap on the wrist that Manning received shows that disseminating classified information is acceptable.
And while I’m grateful that our honorable soldier, Bowe Bergdahl, was freed and safely returned, how can we release five Taliban murderers from Guantanamo Bay? That’s certainly an uneven exchange after all their mass killings. And the claim that they will be under “high security” in their own country…how can that be possible?
With the 9/11 anniversary around the corner, some state that the attacks on September 11, 2001, are unrelated to the death of James Foley and the others. To the contrary, it’s the same group of militants who killed James Foley that slaughtered thousands in our country on September 11, 2001. It’s also the same people responsible for the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and the attacks in Boston at the Marathon in 2013. They may be under different names but they are still the same…and they’ve mobilized even stronger with their ISIS affiliation and monies backing their attacks.
I was, like so many, extremely upset and sickened to read of the execution of James Foley…followed by the Kurdish man, and also Steve Sotloff. Some said that some journalists are now “finally stepping up to the plate” to comment about his death since he is one of our own, and so many have preceded him. On the contrary, when any of these horrific events have occurred, whether it’s been to someone like a local police officer (such as in the case of the murder of Melvin Santiago in cold blood), or this, I’ve said something, whether in an article or a post on Facebook (either my publication or personal page, or both). Granted, I’m a local news reporter so I don’t typically report on national news, however, the death of James Foley has impacted each and every one of us. Many of us locally have had a horrified reaction to these national events…and if it’s important to all of you, it’s surely important to me to write about this.
At the same time, some that I know have been telling us “not to worry” that the powers that be have “got this under control” that our “borders are safe” that the possibility of an attack is “not likely.”
I’d like to think such comforting thoughts, however, after the death of James Foley, Steve Sotloff, the warnings from these experts in the videos in this article here, and the surfacing of the email sent to James Foley just before his death, it should show us several things about ISIS.
First, the email to James Foley’s family as published in several places including NBC News notes several promises, one they have already fulfilled…the death of James Foley. The second will be that Americans will pay the price for bombing, and the third is that (in caps, so obviously yelling), “WE WILL NOT STOP UNTILL (sic) WE QUENCH OUR THIRST FOR YOUR BLOOD.”
Well, some are taking these words casually, it seems, including our President who states we “don’t have a strategy yet” in dealing with ISIS. Instead, the President has decided not to “put the cart before the horse” yet he has no issue to head to the golf course or the fundraisers that he’s been frequently attending. Is he putting the cart before the horse by attending these many events, while our country could be subject to attack? Why is he so busy attending all of these fundraisers when he should be putting his efforts fully into solving this issue?
We can’t take these words casually. We have seen ISIS has already been “of their word” in their slaying of James Foley and then Steven Sotloff.
A friend was a bit riled up about the discussion of the possibility of ISIS coming through Mexico into the United States. Some articles have stated that intelligence is hearing so much talk, it’s reminiscent of 9/11 (which is a whole other story…if they heard so much talk, why in the world were these terrorists able to accomplish such destruction? And also, how in the world could our “intelligence” not be so intelligent enough to pick up on those attacks if there was that much chatter? It seems like someone dropped the ball somewhere, or potentially just allowed it to happen).
One story is quoting that the Southern Region of the United States is next for an attack. They are said to be training in the San Diego area.
Additionally, according to Fox 5 News in San Diego, a number of individuals from Mexico arrived to San Diego by boat, and though seven were found, a “number” were not. A Homeland Security expert questioned if those missing were of the terrorist nature.
The U.K. Prime Minister has it right by declaring a “severe” alert for terrorist attacks. They are likely as vulnerable as we are with their “Beatles” said to be behind the death of James Foley and Steven Sotloff.
And now one of their own, David Cawthorne Haines, is the next slated for death, according to the video released when ISIS executed Steven Sotloff. . Cawthorne Haines was shown pictured, looking very gaunt and despondent, and wearing the orange jumpsuit that all of the other captives have worn. Cawthorne Haines had been working with an aid group, when he was abducted last year.
The U.K. does have a legitimate reason as well to declare such a high alert, as Sharia Law has been infiltrating the U.K. when it comes to wills for example. The news is also reporting “honour killings” from some citizens who have decided to join the Jihad and those, a former Archibishop of Canterbury is proposing, should be stripped of their passports for leaving the country to participate in Jihad, because of the issues with residents leaving for Jihadist training. (Some of the others are making their way from Canada, per this article…with young brothers, for example, leaving to train to fight for ISIS, praising Jihad, and lauding the death of James Foley).
In her video, Lopez also discusses the issues in the U.K. with Shariah. She explains that there is a strong Anti-Semitism with the Muslim Brotherhood, in addition to the anti-Christian sentiments. With the Muslim Brotherhood disdain with Jewish people, many school in the U.K. are no longer teaching about the Holocaust. Lopez said Muslim Children have returned to their homes to tell their parents of the education about the Holocaust. With the complaints from the parents to the school and school boards, it has been dropped altogether from the curriculum.
And another concern in the UK as well is that hygiene among those of the Islamic faith, are allowed to not practice the country’s hygiene rules when working in hospitals, and instead use disposable plastic sleeves, because of religious beliefs.
In other parts of the world, what is scary is even if those aren’t proclaimed a part of ISIS, they are behaving like ISIS, such as the Islamic terror group in Nigeria, the Boko Haram, yet another that is practicing violence for those not converting to Islam.
We need to be afraid in the United States. Of course, we can’t live our lives in absolute fear that we are paralyzed, but we must be on very high alert.
For those who are believers, in Proverbs 22:13 it is stated, “The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.”
Be prudent, because we are dealing with very dangerous people, who won’t hesitate taking any of us down as they have to James Foley, this most recent Kurdish victim, Steven Sotloff, the many unnamed who have been executed of late, those at the Boston Marathon, those, in 1993, on 9/11, and many others who have been slaughtered in the name of Islam.
Click here to see the CNN video, “What we can learn from the horror of ISIS.” As CNN warned, there is a Graphic Content Warning, which shows the execution of the Syrian soldiers, children holding the heads of victims of ISIS, bloodshed, the beheadings, and more. I will warn as CNN has…their video is three minutes long and is not appropriate for children so if you have children in your midst, watch it when they are not around.
At the same time, some are advising not to watch the videos of the beheadings, because it further gives these terrorists satisfaction, and desensitizes us further to these horrors. Click here to watch experts discuss this subject.
Why have we not declared a “severe” alert at this point at this point? Or as the retired lieutenant general suggested DEFCON 1?
ISIS has shown are not the typical bullies on the playground, who we believe will just go away if we ignore them. They have shown they aren’t going away. And they will continue to bully us.
On My Mind: They’re here.
We need to be firm against them, such as our forefathers were as this country fought for freedom against the sovereignty that oppressed them, and at the same time, those who are civilians, we need to be cautious. What these graphic reports have shown is civilians are some of the most targeted of all.
Please stay safe everyone. These are very scary times.
