How Is It That Obama Has A Connecticut Social Security Number?

I’ve been following the whole Obama eligibility issue for some time. While I suspect that he was born in the United States, I have not been in agreement that he is qualified to be president (aside from the obvious fact that he is in “over his head”.) But, this expose clearly raises questions about his eligibility that I was not aware of. If he is a citizen (natural-borne  or otherwise) why does he have a Connecticut social security number when he never lived in Connecticut? And, if he is a natural-borne citizen, why has he spent almost $2 million to hide his birth, schooling, and passport records.

This excellent report attempts to answer some of those questions, and to ask others that you have probably not thought to ask.

We Dodge Another Bullet Thanks To Muslim Stupidity

While the government is patting itself on the back for capturing another stupid terrorist, this time in Oregon, the real story is that we just caught another stupid Muslim. The only reason this bomb plot failed was that the would-be Somali terrorist was working with undercover FBI agent instead of real terrorists. As Reported by the Associated Press:

“The threat was very real,” said Arthur Balizan, special agent in charge of the FBI in Oregon. “Our investigation shows that Mohamud was absolutely committed to carrying out an attack on a very grand scale,”

The FBI affidavit that outlined the investigation alleges that Mohamud planned the attack for months, at one point mailing bomb components to FBI operatives, whom he believed were assembling the device.

It said Mohamud was warned several times about the seriousness of his plan, that women and children could be killed, and that he could back out, but he told agents: “Since I was 15 I thought about all this;” and “It’s gonna be a fireworks show … a spectacular show.”

But, had he been working with real terrorists, as many Muslims in our country are undoubtedly doing, dozens or even hundreds of innocent people would now be dead. And, lets not forget that not all terrorist wannabe’s that are known to our government get rounded up before they can do any damage. Let’s remember that Abdulmutallab, the “underpants bomber”, was well known to the government. But, when the State Department tried to revoke his multiple-entry visa, someone in the US government over-ruled the State Department because he was only a small foot soldier and they were supposedly after bigger game. (Stupid question-why are we even granting visas to people from Somalia, Sudan, Pakistan, Yemen, or other Hell-hole Islamist training states, whose only real export is terrorists? Please, don’t say it is so they can get a  college education. There is a good reason why only 4 Muslims from Muslim nations have ever received a Nobel Prize, excluding the “Peace Prize” which is more notorious than honorable.) Someone, apparently from our government, even helped Abdulmutallab to get on the airplane bound from Amsterdam to Detroit when he did not have a passport! In that case, it was just luck, an incompetent terrorist, and quick action by passengers that saved us from a major catastrophe, not TSA or DHS.  Earlier, the government’s “Able Danger” program had clearly identified most of the 911 hijackers long before 911, but that program was, for an unexplained reason, shut down and the terrorists were allowed to carry out their attacks, thus bringing in the “Patriot Act” and allowing for the creation of the monstrosity known as the Department of Homeland Security, which is now even shutting down web sites related to copyright infringement. I don’t see what that has to do with the security of the homeland, but it is certainly one more step towards the complete shredding of the Constitution. (I could see if the Department of Justice was closing down the sites after clear notification to the sites that they were breaking copyright laws, but this is a clear overstepping of their bounds by the DHS.)

Now, if we want to talk about a topic that is clearly related to the security of the homeland such as the nearly 28,000 people who have been murdered near the Mexican border in the last 2 years, alone, due to the drug trade and the fact that our neighbor to the south, Mexico, is a failed state, and our southern border is wide open to terrorists, weapons, and illegal aliens, you hear “crickets”. In fact, when a border state such as Arizona tries to tackle the problem that the federal government should be concentrating on, they are sued by the federal government! And, when people bring up the fact that the naked body scanners in airports and the sexual assault now being committed against innocent, non-Muslim American travelers, is totally unconstitutional and a crime if done by anyone other than TSA agents, those people are apparently being put on a list by TSA and DHS as “domestic extremists”. (Some district attorneys have announced that they will be arresting TSA agents who sexually assault passengers, and one can only hope that many are, in fact, arrested and prosecuted to end this violation of the fourth amendment.)

The memo, which actually takes the form of an administrative directive, appears to be the product of undated but recent high level meetings between Napolitano, John Pistole, head of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA),and one or more of Obama’s national security advisers. This document officially addresses those who are opposed to, or engaged in the disruption of the implementation of the enhanced airport screening procedures as “domestic extremists.”

At the same time, government and military officials are not allowed to refer to “Muslim extremists”. They are just “youths” or something like unknown and misguided causers of “man-made disasters”! And, the government continually refuses to recognize the threat from Muslims, even though they are the cause of 99% of all of the terrorist attacks in the world today. The government continues to say that they can’t understand what caused Major Nidal Hasan to murder 13 people in cold blood at Fort Hood, even while shouting “Allahu Akbar” as he mowed people down with his gun.

You can see how stupid the Oregon wannabe terrorist Mohamed Osman Mohamud was from discussions released by the FBI. They repeatedly asked questions about whether he could handle the death and carnage. Undoubtedly, this was done to strengthen their case against him, and hopefully they will put him away for life and he will not get a reduced sentence on the basis of entrapment, or something like that. But, clearly real terrorists would not be discussing things in such terms.

We also got lucky with the Times Square bomber. Again, another stupid, incompetent Muslim. Fortunately, he did not pass bomb-making 101 when he went to Pakistan, since his bomb was a dud. Again, we got lucky. But, we have not always been lucky, as shown by the Oklahoma City bombing, which clearly had an Islamic connection, as documented in  Jayna Davis’ excellent  book Third Terrorist- the Middle East Connection. In that case, Clinton dropped all interest in a Muslim (specifically Iraqi) connection when he heard that the authorities had two “Lilly whites”, McVeigh and Nichols, in custody. And, a similar thing happened with TWA 800, which was clearly taken out by a bomb or missile with the help of Ramsey Yousef (also connected to Oklahoma City) and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.  Also, in 2001, it is quite likely that American Airlines flight 587 was brought down over New York City by a liquid explosive, which has been used by Muslims before.

In his book “Chechan Jihad”, Bodansky points out that the liquid explosives that were used to bring down 2 Russian airliners on  August 24, 2004, were probably the same explosives used to bring down American Airlines flight 587. (My comment: probably TWA 800, as well.)

An especially telling fact, brought out by Bodansky, Bill Gertz (2), and Professor Jonathan Turley in Testimony before the Subcommittee on Aviation, Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure (3), is that the FAA issued an information circular, on December 11, 2001, one month after the American Airlines flight 587 crash, but almost 2 weeks before Richard Reid’s attempted to bring down American Airlines flight 63, stressing that shoes should be inspected for possible weapons or devices. Sure, it could be pure coincidence, but I do not believe in coincidences. I think the government knew that American Airlines flight 587 was brought down by a bomb,and knew, or  speculated, that it might have been hidden in a shoe, and thus they issued that circular.

If DHS, FBI, TSA, and other agencies want to actually protect, rather than merely harass, inconvenience, and humiliate law abiding American citizens, I suggest that they start doing their jobs and profile, profile, profile. We know who the terrorists are; they are young Muslim males. As soon as Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, or atheist people start bombing or hijacking airplanes, then the TSA can start screening them more thoroughly. But, resources are limited, and we must concentrate on the actual threat as we know it. And, I don’t want to hear that these inspections of children, old ladies, nuns, non-Muslim men in wheelchairs or with prosthetic knees is necessary because they “could” be terrorists. The TSA has always been reactive, not proactive. Why start being proactive with imaginary terrorists when their are plenty of Muslim suspects, especially those who have traveled to places like Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, etc.
