REMEMBER, IT WAS ONLY WORKPLACE VIOLENCE – AT 7:46 A.M. ET:   Remember Major Hasan, the misunderstood Army psychiatrist who murdered 13 people at Fort Hood in 2009 while screaming a radical Islamic oath?  He has a new request.  From London's Daily Mail: 

The former Army psychiatrist who killed 13 people in the 2009 shooting spree at Fort Hood has said it would be 'an honor' to join the caliphate in a letter to ISIS, it has been reported.

Nidal Hasan has apparently requested to be made a 'citizen soldier' of the caliphate in the letter to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Hasan opened fire on his fellow servicemen and women on November 5, killing 13 and injuring 30 others.

He was shot and paralyzed from the waist down in the resulting gunfire and was sentenced to death last year.

Earlier this year FBI Director James Comey testified that he believed the shooting carried out by Hasan at Fort Hood in Texas was inspired by al-Qaeda.

The federal government has termed the attack an incidence of 'workplace violence,' saying that the home-grown Hasan didn't meet the legal definition of an international terrorist.

What a farce.

In an undated letter, obtained by Fox News, Hasan reportedly requests to be made a 'citizen' of the Islamic State.

He goes on to say it would be 'an honor for any believer to be an obedient citizen soldier to a people and its leader who don't compromise the religion of All-Mighty Allah to get along with the disbelievers.'

COMMENT:  No, I think not.  Unless Obama goes completely batty, which is a distinct possibility, Hasan will probably have to face the music for what he did.   But, you know, the Islamic State could probably benefit from his psychiatric services.

Is it really possible that no one noticed this man's proclivities before he shot up Fort Hood?  Or were they not encouraged to notice by the Obama administration?

AN ALTERNATIVE CULTURAL NARRATIVE – AT 7:24 A.M. ET:  Rarely has brutality been on display as blatantly as it is with the Islamic State.  From London's Daily Mail: 

Islamic State have released a new decapitation video, threatening America for the second time and urging the Kurds to break from their alliance with the West against the caliphate.

Just hours after Islamic State released shocking footage of the mass execution of 300 Syrian national army soldiers in the Syrian desert, Islamic State have issued a second warning to the United States.

The grainy video, accompanied by the hashtag '2ndAmessagetoAmerica', shows the vicious beheading of a Kurdish soldier, who was part of a group of 15 fighters likely to have been captured by Islamic State during the fighting in Iraq.

The group's first warning ten days ago was entitled 'A Message to America' and showed the decapitation of American journalist James Foley.

In the latest video, the captors first issue a warning they will continue to decapitate prisoners should America continue to support the Kurds in their fight against the Islamic State.
They then behead one of the captives on a sandy roadside in Iraq, where the Great Mosque of Mosul can be seen in the background.

Kurdish forces have been in fierce fighting with Islamic State since June and their militias have been beginning to receive considerable amounts of armaments from Western powers including the USA and UK.

It is the latest front line in a brutal power struggle taking place through Syria and Iraq as the Islamic State attempts to extend its influence and impose Sharia law across the region.

COMMENT:  And what does our leader, Field Marshal of the United States, Including the South Side of Chicago, Barack Obama, have to say about this?  He told us yesterday that we don't have a plan yet for defeating the Islamic State.  Earlier in the week we learned that the United States has been studying this movement for four years.  Well, you know, that's very little time to develop a strategic plan that would satisfy the needs of a godlike president.  True, we won World War II in three years, eight months, but we were so crude about it.  The field marshal has much higher standards, including his brilliant concept of leading from behind.

MORE ABSURDITY – AT 6:43 A.M. ET:  The New York Times isn't dying.  It's committing suicide.  Earlier this week it had the nerve to give an accurate description of Michael Brown, who was killed by police bullets in the Ferguson incident.  But the political left erupted at any description of Brown that suggested he was less than perfect, the same kind of eruption we had in 2008 if anyone dared ask a serious question of Barack Obama.  Now the Times is crawling and begging forgiveness for printing impolite thoughts.  From John Hinderaker at Powerline: 

Michael Brown was a very large young man, 6’4″ and 292 (sometimes reported as 300) pounds. He used his size aggressively to rob a convenience store and shove aside a store clerk just ten minutes before his fatal encounter with a police officer. Brown’s height and weight are obviously relevant to the police officer’s claim of self-defense, which we assume will eventually be forthcoming.

Yet these basic physical facts are too hot for the New York Times to handle. In a column by Kyle Massey, an assistant news editor, the Times says that it regrets describing Brown as “burly” and will no longer do so. Why? Because the word “burly” is “racially charged.” That’s news to me; I have sometimes described my son as burly, although he weighs more than 100 pounds less than Brown. Evidently I will have to stop, even though the Merriam-Webster dictionary merely defines “burly” as “strongly and heavily built.”

So how will the Times describe Brown from now on? Svelte? Diminutive? I don’t suppose so. The paper’s real problem is that it doesn’t want readers to know that Brown was such a big guy. They just want to keep saying that he was “unarmed,” as though that precludes any necessity for self-defense. 6’4″ and 292 pounds clouds that narrative just a bit. So from now on, the Times will draw a discreet veil over the stature of the burly Mr. Brown.

COMMENT:  On the political left, justice is defined as getting the result you want.  Whether it is just or corrupt is of no consequence.  It reminds us of the definition of "truth" by Herbert Marcuse, one of the left's leading philosophers in the 1960s:  Truth, he said, is what supports progressive causes. 

The Times is simply going with the flow.  Many of its "sophisticated" readers just don't care, or are happy to go along with this new fascism, as long as they can be invited to the proper cocktail parties in Manhattan.

SICKENING – AT 6:35 A.M. ET:  Jimmy Carter is more than a public embarrassment.  He is a disgrace to the American presidency.  From Newsmax: 

Former President Jimmy Carter will headline a fundraising convention for Hamas, a group which has been recognized by the U.S. as a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel.

Breitbart News reports that Carter, 89, long known as a supporter of Hamas in its struggle with Israel, will be welcomed this weekend to the Detroit event by members of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), implicated by the Justice Department in a scheme to funnel $12 million to Hamas.

Expected to speak at the meeting at Cobo Hall are unindicted co-conspirators Jamal Badawi, named in 2007 in the Holy Land Foundation Trial, and Siraj Wahhaj, listed for his involvement in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.

Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, head of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the U.S., and Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim member of Congress, also will speak.

Carter's involvement may be in violation of the law, U.S. Code 2339B, Section 18, which makes it a crime for any U.S. citizen to provide material support to any group designated as a foreign terrorist organization.

Constitutional law expert Alan Dershowitz stressed that Carter's actions, in raising funds for the ISNA, place him "very close, if not across the line," of criminal behavior.

COMMENT:   One of the great lies about Carter is that he's a human-rights activist.  In fact, his support for human rights, and basic democratic rights, is very selective.  You never hear him arguing for human rights in, say, Saudi Arabia.  I am speculating, but I wonder what size check it took to shut Carter up on that score.

When he was president he lectured this nation about its "inordinate fear of Communism," essentially ridiculing the notion that Communist nations were a threat to our way of life. What a great crusader for human rights!  Compare please to Ronald Reagan, who inspired the refuseniks and others fighting for freedom in the Soviet Union. 

He was given the Nobel Peace Prize for nothing, which is why it's usually given.  He contributed nothing to peace.  Indeed, one of the Nobel big shots said at the time that Carter was awarded the prize as a "kick in the shins" to George W. Bush, who had the gall to defend his country.

Carter is getting more eccentric and more mean-spirited with age.  Even his grandson, who is running for governor of Georgia, has distanced himself from him.  Some men don't know when to get off the stage.

AUGUST 28,  2014

SHORT TAKES ON THE DRIFTING WRECKAGE – AT 11:53 P.M. ET: 

WELCOME TO THE FUTURE – From the Local (Norway):  "Statistics Norway (Statistisk Sentralbyrå - SSB) has counted the population of Oslo and found that Mohammed is the most common male name in Oslo for the first time ever.  Altogether 4,801 boys and men are named Mohammed or variations of Mohammed as their first name, and Mohammed has thereby passed both Jan (4,667) and Per (4,155).  The name has spent four years in a row at the top of the list of baby names in Oslo, but this is the first time that Mohammed tops the men's name list for Oslo."  I'm sure the multiculturalists in Norway are thrilled to death.  As we all know, all Mohammeds are blond.

WEIRD – Obama's press conference today, during which he wore a tan summer suit that made him look like a local hustler, was weird.  Obama informed us that the Russian invasion of Ukraine doesn't much change things, and also admitted that he doesn't yet have a strategy for dealing with the Islamic State.  It's just so thrilling to see leadership at work.  A real Caesar, this one.  That's Freddie Caesar, a community organizer in Camden, New Jersey.

THAT DATE – From the Washington Times:  "The U.S. intelligence community has observed a 'significant increase' in chatter among terrorist organizations as the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks nears.  'We’ve noticed a significant increase in chatter among Islamic terrorist organizations overseas both on the Internet and phone lines,' a U.S. government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Blaze.   While the intelligence community can not pinpoint whether or not an attack is planned, the official said that agencies 'did see this kind of increase in chatter before the September 11 attacks.'"  Eternal vigilance, my friends.

OBAMA RAPPED IN POLLS – From Gallup:  "WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans are more than twice as likely to say they 'strongly disapprove' (39%) of President Barack Obama's job performance as they are to say they 'strongly approve' (17%). The percentage of Americans who strongly disapprove of Obama has increased over time, while the percentage who strongly approve has dropped by almost half."  And we still have more than two years with this guy.

SEPTEMBER 11th IS TWO WEEKS AWAY – AT 9:16 A.M. ET:   And there is growing concern that one of the terror groups might try something, as they did in Benghazi two years ago.  There is special concern because the Islamic State (or ISIS, or ISIL) is getting so much publicity, and competition among these terror organizations can be intense, and personal.  Will Al Qaeda use September 11th to prove it's back in the game?  We hope not, but eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.  From Fox: 

A new English-language Al Qaeda magazine features a how-to article on making car bombs and suggests terror targets in the United States, including casinos in Las Vegas, oil tankers and military colleges, and implies that an attack is imminent.

The online publication, called “Palestine-Betrayal of the Guilty Conscience Al-Malahem” and put out by the media arm of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, calls for Muslims around the world to follow “the recipe” provided to set off car bombs in crowded venues. It includes a timeline of "selected jihadi operations" that the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which first flagged the slickly-produced latest edition of the terror publication, finds chilling.

“The timeline concludes with the date 201?’ and blank spaces and question marks for the photo and information of the next attack -- implying that it is coming soon.” said MEMRI Executive Director Steve Stalinsky.

There is a suggested list of targets for lone-wolf, or individually executed, terror attacks, including New York's Times Square, casinos and night clubs in Las Vegas, oil tankers and trains, the Georgia Military College, the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, and General Atomics defense contractor in San Diego.

“This recipe gives you the ability to make a car bomb even in countries with tight security and surveillance,” one article reads, before providing a “shopping list” of supplies needed to make such a bomb, including cooking gas, oxygen gas, a barometer, decoration lamps and matches.

There is also a list of targets in Britain including a military academy and the Marks and Spencers chain of department stores. The magazine calls for the stores to be hit on Friday during prayers so that Muslims won’t be affected.

Globally, AQAP calls for the targeting of tourist resorts frequented by Israelis, Britons and Americans.

COMMENT:  The last successful attack was the Boston Marathon bombing, on April 15th of last year.  Nothing would surprise me right now.  If anything, terror groups have become more active and more militant in the last year, while our government has become confused and weak.

UKRAINE BULLETIN – AT 8:58 A.M. ET:  It appears something very big is happening in Ukraine.  Facts are sketchy, but this could truly be an international explosion.  From CNN:

Kiev, Ukraine (CNN) -- Pro-Moscow rebel forces in eastern Ukraine, backed by Russian tanks and armored personnel carriers, battled government forces on two fronts Thursday, a Ukrainian military official said.

The fighting was taking place southeast of Donetsk, and along the nation's southern coast in the town of Novoazovsk, about 12 miles (20 km) from the Russian border, according to Mykhailo Lysenko, the deputy commander of the Ukrainian Donbas battalion.

"This is a full-scale invasion," Lysenko said, referring to the fighting in the south.
U.S. officials also said Russian troops were directly involved in the latest fighting, despite Moscow's denials.

Intelligence now indicates that up to 1,000 Russian troops have moved into southern Ukraine with heavy weapons and are fighting there, a U.S. official told CNN on Thursday.

Ukraine's National Defense and Security Council said that Russian forces were in full control of Novoazovsk as of Wednesday afternoon.

COMMENT:  We understand that Ukraine has asked for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.  We haven't yet heard from Field Marshal Obama, who is undoubtedly assessing the situation from his command bunker at the 16th hole. 

One thing we must watch for, if Ukraine explodes and the Islamic State continues its run in Iraq, is a crisis erupting somewhere else, as in Asia, if some adversary believes we're now distracted and stretched thin.  It isn't hard to believe that, considering who's in charge in Washington.

ROMNEY? – AT 8:31 A.M. ET:  Look, there's a lot of buzz about this on the internet.  The argument is that respect for Romney has grown and that he already has presidential stature.  From The Politico: 

The day after Mitt Romney opened the door to another possible presidential run, a new poll shows he has a huge lead among likely 2016 Iowa Republican caucus voters.

According to a USA Today/Suffolk University poll released Wednesday, 35 percent of likely GOP caucus voters would vote for the 2012 GOP nominee in 2016. When Romney’s name was added to the pool, no other candidate received double-digit vote

The survey comes as rumors have begun to swirl about a potential Romney bid for president in 2016. After months of insisting that he will not run again, the former Massachusetts governor on Tuesday acknowledged that “circumstances can change.”

“Circumstances can change, but I’m just not going to let my head go there,” he said during an interview on the “The Hugh Hewitt Show” radio program.

COMMENT:  Part of his lead in Iowa can no doubt be attributed to name recognition.  But I think the story is larger.  The Republican presidential field is wide, but not very deep.  No one stands out as an obvious choice, and Republicans know how difficult it will be to build a new candidate, especially in the face of hostile media. 

The problem here is an obvious one:  Romney will not be facing Obama in 2016, a man he could probably defeat today.  He'll probably be facing Hillary Clinton, and polls show she would win by about ten points.  That doesn't mean the situation is static.  Polls change.  But Romney did not prove himself an adept candidate in 2012.  There were gaffes and the chronic presence of a tin ear, as when he said he wife drove "a couple of Cadillacs."  There was the building of a new mansion right in the middle of a presidential campaign.

For Romney to run again he will have to show he's a better, quicker, more sensitive candidate.  I have no idea whether he can do it.  I think he'd make a solid president, but you've got to be elected first, or, in the case of Obama, anointed.

GETTING HOTTER ALL THE TIME – AT 8:17 A.M. ET:  The issue is recruitment of jihadis in the West, people who can be trained in murder and sent back to their native countries.  Sometimes they don't make the whole trip.  From Fox: 

A second American reportedly killed fighting with the Islamic State group in Syria has been identified as Abdirahmaan Muhumed, of Minneapolis, two sources told Fox News late Wednesday.

KMSP-TV in Minneapolis reported that Muhumed was killed in the same battle as Douglas McAuthur McCain, who grew up outside Minneapolis in the town of New Hope and most recently lived in San Diego. The State Department confirmed McCain's death earlier this week, but spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Wednesday that the U.S. has no independent confirmation of the second American's death. "We're looking into it," she said.

A source told Fox News that Muhumed's family had been sent a photo of his body from Syria, but had not been formally notified by the State Department. Fox News was unable to contact the family.

A profile of Muhumed by Minnesota Public Radio this past June described him as a 29-year-old Somali-American who had been married more than once and was a father of nine children. MPR reported, citing the FBI, that at least 15 young men from the Twin Citites' Somali-American community had traveled to Syria to join Islamic State, the militant group formerly known as ISIS that has captured wide swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq.

In a Facebook messages to an MPR reporter, Muhumed wrote "I give up this worldly life for Allah" and "Allah loves those who fight for his cause." A picture posted on the social network showed Muhumed carrying a Koran in one hand and a rifle in the other.

Federal investigators believe that approximately 100 Americans have traveled to Syria to join Islamist groups. Most of them are disaffected young men targeted by recruitment videos like those one put out by the Somali-based, Al Qaeda-linked group al-Shabaab that praised Minnesota's "martyrs." One such "martyr" was Troy Kastigar, a high school classmate of Douglas McCain and a Muslim convert who was killed in Somalia in 2009.

Abdi Bihi, a leader in the Twin Cities' Somalian community, told KMSP that ISIS has recently begun trying to recruit young women from the Twin Cities to their cause.

"They are brainwashing them to marry them off to jihadists," he said. "They call them to help out as nurses, help out the wounded -- but the real catch is they will be sexually exploited."

COMMENT:  Hmm.  I wonder how many "women's" organizations on the political left will intervene to help these Somali women before they become victims.  Don't hold your breath.  On the left there is a pecking order, and the lives of women are far down the list.  What is disgraceful is that "feminist" groups go along with this.

As to the rest of the piece, it is only a matter of time before some of the jihadis return to the U.S. on their valid American passports and pull off something ghastly.
