Exiting Counterterrorism Official Warns Of Extremists’ Access To Guns In U.S.

BY Herschel Smith

The Hill:

The retiring head of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) warned ahead of his exit Friday about extremists’ ability to acquire lethal weapons in the U.S.

In a final briefing with reporters ahead of his departure, NCTC Director Nicholas Rasmussen voiced concern about the ability to protect from mass casualty attacks.

“We find ourselves in a more dangerous situation because our population of violent extremists has no difficulty gaining access to weapons that are quite lethal,” Rasmussen said, according to The Washington Post. “I wish that weren’t so.”

Rasmussen, who served as the NCTC’s director for three years, said he had no solutions to offer domestic law enforcement agencies working to prevent mass-casualty attacks, but said a link between the availability of guns and the potential for violence is a calculation for counterterrorism analysts.

“More weapons, more readily available, increases the lethality of those that would pick them up and use them,” he said.

Rasmussen said the U.S. should be focused on stemming the spread of violent ideologies, adding that anti-Muslim rhetoric has complicated that effort, according to the Post.

His “warnings” are all bullshit.  First of all, the Obama holdovers aren’t worried about Islam.  They don’t want white, middle class Americans to have them.  His warnings are a misdirect from his real fear.

Second, I feel about this kind of “warning” the same way I feel about it when I read that suicide is highest among white rural Americans.  They blame it on guns rather than drive to the root of the problem.

Finally, you learn all you need to know about the goobers Obama hired to captain the sinking ship of his administration when he tells you that “anti-Muslim rhetoric” has complicated the effort to stem the spread of violent ideologies.

As if violent Islam is a function of Western invective against it.  I believe he has his cause and effect mixed up, yes?

Muslim Immigration: The End Of Europe

The Sun:

Finland’s Muslim population alone could increase by more than four times, while the UK could see an increase of 2.65 times in little more than a decade, according to projections made in the study.

Around 6.3 per cent of the UK’s population is currently Muslim – compared to the percentage of 4.9 across Europe – with the country potentially reaching 17.2 per cent in the high migration scenario, to the Washington-based Pew Forum report suggested.

The report said countries like Germany and Sweden that would see the biggest growth in Muslim population, stating: “Countries that have received relatively large numbers of Muslim refugees in recent years are projected to experience the biggest changes in the high migration scenario.”

Under the highest level projections, one in five people in Germany would be Muslim by 2050, Sweden is expected to see almost one in three.

At least in the time of the Crusades, there was a Christian presence in Europe that bound the nation-states together enough to fight a defensive struggle against a common enemy.  Today that exists no more.

I recall asking a Dutch (who spoke English) about the legacy of Herman Bavinck and Abraham Kuyper.  He had no idea who those men were.  I am also good friends with someone who visited the home and former classroom of C.S. Lewis, and the guide told him that the only tourists interested in Lewis were now Americans.  No one in England knew who Lewis was.

You’re looking at the end of Europe.  They want to resist, some of them, but they have no soul for it, no stomach, no foundation, no moral moorings.  Combine that with the narcissistic world view which neglects to reproduce, while the Muslims reproduce like rabbits, and they will be Muslim within our lifetimes, and that by force.

My biggest concern is that America isn’t far behind.

German Police: “I Am Afraid Of My Islamic Recruits”

This is another must-watch video.  What a sorry excuse for police, but the example is in a sorry excuse for a country as well, with a sorry excuse for a leader.  It’s on par with what I would expect.

It seems they need to be taught Herschel’s Dictum.

New York Truck Attack

BY Herschel Smith
3 months, 3 weeks ago

So by now you’ve all heard that an little old white church lady ran over some folks in New York, shouting “Behold the lamb of God who was given by the Father for the sins of His people as a propitiation and vicarious atonement.”

Or not.

But remember boys and girls.  Diversity is our strength.

What Is The Purpose Of A Mosque?

BY Herschel Smith
4 months ago

UTT:

In Muhammad’s time the mosque played an important role in encouraging muslims to wage jihad.”
Sheikh Yusuf al Qaradawi  (Islamic scholar, Senior Jurist for the International Muslim Brotherhood)

“The mosque is the bastion of the great jihad”
Ayatollah Khomeini

“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets, and the faithful our soldiers.”
Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan

A mosque is not an “Islamic church.”  A mosque is not a “place of worship”

A mosque is the seat of Islamic government.

A mosque is more aptly likened to an embassy or military outpost.

When you see a Mosque go up, it means that Muslims have chosen that particular location to build a combat outpost to expand the forcible implementation of Sharia.

Knifeman Kills Two In France

BY Herschel Smith

A man in France shouted “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world,” and stabbed two people to death in the name of Christ.

Oh.  Wait.  Never mind.  That’s not what happened.

MARSEILLE, France/PARIS (Reuters) – Two women were stabbed to death and their assailant shot dead by a soldier in the southern French port city of Marseille on Sunday in what officials described as a “likely terrorist act”.

Police sources said the suspect had shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is greatest) in Arabic as he attacked the women, aged 17 and 20, at Marseille’s main railway station.

Two police sources said one had her throat slit while the other was stabbed in the chest and stomach.

An Islamic State militant was responsible for the attack, the group’s Amaq news agency said.

It might have been done by a “warrior of hope.”  I feel sure no one has figured out a motive yet.

Approaches To Islam

BY Herschel Smith
5 months, 1 week ago

NR:

“A propensity to violence is embedded in the core principles of Islam,” he writes, demonstrating how this propensity repeats down the centuries and across borders. Every time and everywhere the violence is a phenomenon of the faith, not a reaction to poverty or to some wickedness supposedly imposed by outsiders and unbelievers such as, for instance, Western colonialism. Terrorists, says President Trump, are “sick and demented,” while Mrs. May calls them “cowards.” Such opinions stem from Western ways of judging conduct, and are irrelevant in this context. Jihadis are committing mass-murder and self-sacrifice in the belief that Islam demands this of them.

That’s right, of course.  That’s why it’s always incorrect and historically inaccurate and irrelevant to say that people who do such things are “sick,” “mentally ill,” “mentally disturbed,” “cowards,” or whatever superlative you want to throw at them.

They see you as the enemy and fodder for the implementation of Sharia.  They won’t be happy until you worship in a Mosque, your women wear head cover and don’t go out of the house without you, and your sons fight for the cause of jihad.  That’s just for starters.

And there is only one historically accurate approach to Islam.  The Mosque, if you will remember from our previous conversations on this subject, is their armory, training center and logistics hub.  It all begins with the Mosque.

Got guns and ammunition?

On The Front Lines Fighting ISIS With Christian Fighters

BY Herschel Smith
6 months, 3 weeks ago

Andrew Doran:

For their part, those fighting for ISIS — Saudis, Chechens, Afghans, French, Turks, Pakistanis, Germans, and Americans, among others — are under no illusions that they are in the last days of the geographical caliphate. The coalition hope was to kill every member of ISIS in Mosul and Raqqa, to prevent them from returning to their countries to carry out attacks. It is certain, however, that many have already escaped. One sees many bearded young men among the caravans of refugees of fleeing Mosul and Raqqa.

The ISIS fighters who don’t blow themselves up in suicide bombings may fight to the death. Or they may try to return to their countries of origin to carry out lone-wolf — or perhaps coordinated — attacks. The latter would be in keeping with the spirit of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the true founder and visionary of ISIS. Zarqawi carried out such attacks with lethal efficiency in Iraq — against defenseless civilians in public places, including houses of worship and even elementary schools. These forms of terrorism have already become somewhat commonplace in the Western world and are certain to increase in the months and years ahead.

[ … ]

The next morning, ISIS breaks through and attacks an Arab position to the northeast, killing four. A suicide blast rocks a Syriac unit atop a roof overlooking a vast urban no-man’s-land. From their rooftop position, Christian and “Paul,” another American volunteer, swing into action with two soldiers, one Arab and the other Syriac. The exchanges last perhaps 30 minutes. Christian and Paul lay down machine-gun and small-arms fire, bringing the morning’s fight to a conclusion with Christian firing a rocket-propelled grenade into an ISIS position. “In the Marine Corps, we call that fire superiority,” says Christian. “It works.”

“We make progress during the day, but there are snipers,” says “Kino,”one of the Syriac commanders and its spokesman. “We have to be careful also of IEDs and snipers. They also use drones.” ISIS drones are a daily occurrence. “I think each drone carries four bombs. It’s a very effective weapon for them. Once they’re overhead, no one can move.” The drone improvisation is unexpected and probably has been effective in slowing the SDF advance. ISIS appears to have no shortage of drones. One of them, a reconnaissance drone, was made in Simi Valley, Calif. “I’m guessing they got this from the Iraqi army,” says Paul, who serves as both soldier and medic.

“Christian” and “Paul.”  I like their choice of Nom de Guerre.  And I respect what they are doing.  These are brave men, and the article is deadly accurate.  Islamic violence is going to increase, not decrease, and it’s going to do so not only in Eurasia, the U.K. and across the Middle and Far East, but in CONUS as well.  Count on it.

Are you ready?  Have you “gunned up” yet?  Do you avoid crowds?  Do you stay in good physical shape?  Have you stocked your gun safe with ammunition yet?  If you are a sleepy, lazy Christian who expects to be pulled out of the festivities with the ridiculous “rapture,” what are you going to do when young Muslims rape your daughter because she isn’t wearing a hijab?  You realize that by believing in the rapture you believe that God is only going to save American Christians, don’t you?

How arrogant is that?  God allowed His people to suffer and become slaughtered in Mesopotamia at the hands of ISIS, in Egypt at the hands of Islamists (i.e., the Coptic Christians), in Turkey at the hands of the Islamists (i.e., the Armenians) and on and on we could go.  But God is going to spare you because American Christians are special.  Or something.

I have a right to say these things to you, if you are a Christian, since I am one of you, except that I don’t believe in your rapture.  And you have a responsibility to act when you can, and that “when you can” is right now, not later.  As for ISIS getting their drones from the Iraqi Army, perhaps, but remember that “patriot” John McCain demanded that we fund them with weapons, and so we did.  And remember that McCain and Lindsey Graham have oil plays in North Africa.

The “them” I’m talking about is addressed in the article at NRO.

“The U.S. was going to arm us [the Syriac Military Council] in 2015, but they went with the FSA instead,” says one of the Syriac commanders. That the Free Syrian Army turned out to be little more than Islamist militias, and that the U.S.-government program was nothing short of disastrous, is now well documented. The Syrian Democratic Forces, especially units like the Syriac Military Council, are much closer to what the FSA duped gullible Westerners into thinking that it was.

The Westerners weren’t gullible, and no one was duped.  George Soros, DynCorp, the Obama administration and McCain always intended to arm ISIS.  The U.S. created ISIS by intent, not by accident.

Similarly, population replacement is the order of the day in the U.K., and the LEOs have all been brainwashed and coopted into the project.  If you don’t believe this is headed to America, you are asleep at the wheel careening for the cliff.

How Did Islam Destroy Classical Western Civilization?

Via WRSA, this video from Dr. Bill Warner is absolutely essential education.

This is why I have been telling the naïve, pathetic Christians that they need to “gun up” and develop an intellectual framework for violence.  If you don’t, your wives will watch them behead you and then be raped, your daughters will be sold into slavery, your sons will become part of the global jihad, and your wealth will be scattered to the four winds.
