The Brothers Tsarnaev, Col Harland Saunders and persecution of RG III.

With apologies to Fyodor Dostoyevsky I find it quite apropos since it was recently announced by the New York Times that Russian-American journalist Masha Gessen, the author of "The Man Without a Face," a biography of President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, will be writing a biography on the Boston Marathon Jihadist. Rest assured that "Jihad" with not be part of the title so all bets are off on Marsha Gessen achieving any form of intellectual honesty near Dostoyevsky's literary stature, but rather will strip mine the event for profit while hundreds are still recovering from their wounds, loss of loved ones and hundreds of thousands may never recover from the mental horror of the event.

The New York Times has already started the Mea Culpa parade by rolling out the article "A Battered Dream, Then a Violent Path"
    "Mr. Tsarnaev now lies in the state medical examiner's office, his body riddled with bullets after a confrontation with the police four days after the bombings. He left behind an American-born wife who had converted to Islam, a 3-year-old daughter with curly hair, a 19-year-old brother charged with using a weapon of mass destruction, and a puzzle: Why did these two young men seemingly turn on the country that had granted them asylum?"
I'm sure that that this initial cannonade will soon raise to the crescendo of the 1812 overture as every self-radicalization hypothesis is put forward to obfuscate the naked truth that this was just another Jihadists attack.

That his dream was shattered by a single decision that prevented him from competing professionally, that one small obstacle erected in his path of life was so egregious that his only recourse was to, with malice of forethought, kill and maim hundreds of people who had nothing whatsoever to do with the actual decision that affected his boxing career. Had he not beat his wife or made his sojourn to Russia he would have become a citizen and the boxing rule would have never applied. Had the authorities minded the warning of the Russian and other authorities and deported him for the wife beating episode the Boston Marathon Jihadist Attack would have not happened. These are all but post facto hypotheticals; however, I use the comparison to Col. Harlan Saunders because the Col had a hard life but never gave up on the American Dream. I suggest you read this mini bio from whence this excerpt comes, before reading the rest of my article.
    In the 1950s the government built I-75 which by-passed his restaurant a few miles to the west. The restaurant failed. Colonel Sanders sold his restaurant at auction and was just barely able to pay off his debts and taxes. He found himself broke at the age of 65.

    Down to his monthly $105 social security check as his sole source of income, he drove around in a Cadillac with his face painted on the side before anybody knew who he was, pleading with the owners of run-down diners to use his recipe and give him a nickel commission on each chicken. He slept in the back of the car and made handshake deals.
What prevented Col Saunders from taking his supply of Pressure Fryers and bombing the very agencies that built I75 and bankrupted him? What caused the Brothers Tsarnaev to wreak their vengeance on innocent people at the Boston Marathon and not the agency that allegedly thwarted his boxing career? I would suggest that the answer to both questions is the same, because of their individual perception of America, leavened with their moral and spiritual/religious beliefs and upbringing!

I take great risk in making this analogy, as I am not a US citizen and must reapply for a new work visa every year and may at any time be prevented from getting a new work visa at my next application. I suggest that you read my open letter to the Gang of Eight if you want further clarification as to why I cannot even apply for a "Green Card," while the younger of the Brothers Tsarnaev, and ironically became a US citizen on the anniversary of 9/11 having been in the country the same amount of time as I have.

Col Saunders grew up in a time when the sanctity of the divinely inspired Constitution was revered, to quote George Washington:
    "No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency."
The Bible and Christianity were not openly mocked, the schools were not infested by socialists hacks and terrorists bombers like Bill Ayres, who pervert history by calling the 9/11 Hijackers Freedom Fighters or the Boston tea party terrorism. 10 commandments were as cast in stone as the law of the land as they are over the Supreme Court.

Brothers Tsarnaev arrived in 1992, the same time I arrived in America, they received over $100,000.00 of welfare benefits that came from our taxes. I don't know about you, but I am incensed that my tax dollars contributed to Jihad. They came of age in an America cast adrift from its spiritual and moral roots where the Constitution is viewed as an obstacle to be circumvented, coupled with the constant media and special interest group attacks on the Judeo-Christian underpinnings of our society, as if neither is valid as the true pathway to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Where people are rewarded for their failures and High School Textbooks are Indoctrinating Students That 'Palestinian Suicide Bombers Are 'Wartime Retaliation' and Colleges are beds of Leftist Indoctrination. A country where the President is either a Muslim by Gaffe or a "God Damn America" Christian via Jeremiah Wright's church and goes on a world apology tour as soon as he is was president.
    I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America's story. The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco. In signing the Treaty of Tripoli in 1796, our second President John Adams wrote, The United States has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims. And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States. They have fought in our wars, served in government, stood for civil rights, started businesses, taught at our Universities, excelled in our sports arenas, won Nobel Prizes, built our tallest building, and lit the Olympic Torch. And when the first Muslim-American was recently elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the same Holy Quran that one of our Founding Fathers – Thomas Jefferson – kept in his personal library.
The missing element is the truth as to why Thomas Jefferson had a Quran in his library. It had to do with the Barbary Coast wars and like everything Muslim, Islam and Jihad they are words and concepts being purged from our collective consciousness and official government texts via the high priests of political correctness. AP has already purged the word Illegal Immigrant. Only time will tell when Jihad, and Radical Muslim Extremism are officially purged via the latest Orwellian Newspeak.

The United States Dept. of State, Office of the Historian, no longer mentions the words Islam or Muslim in their piece on the Barbary Coast War. No mention of Britain's 200 Year Jihad; one should read the book "White Gold" By Giles Milton. The book makes clear that this assault upon the British people (and upon Europeans and Americans who were similarly seized) was a jihad. The Sally Rovers, writes Milton, were called 'al-ghuzat' – the term once used for the soldiers who fought with the Prophet – and were hailed as religious warriors engaged in a holy war against the infidel Christians who were pressurized to convert to Islam under threat of hideous punishment. There are historical accounts of the Sally Rovers actually raiding Newfoundland (North Americas Eastern most point) for slaves that were never heard from again.

Here is the real reason Jefferson Purchased a Quran:
    In 1786, Jefferson, then the American ambassador to France, and John Adams, then the American ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the Tripolitan ambassador to Britain. American merchant ships had been captured by the Barbary corsairs and their crews and passengers imprisoned. They could only by freed by the payment of large ransoms. The Americans wanted to negotiate a peace treaty to spare their ships these piratical attacks. Congress was willing to appease the Barbary pirates if only they could gain peace at a reasonable price.

    During the meeting, Jefferson and Adams asked the ambassador why Muslims held such hostility toward America, a nation with which they had had no previous contacts. Jefferson later reported to John Jay what the ambassador had told them: the reason for the Muslims' enmity was that "It was written in their Koran that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman (Muslim) who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to [P]aradise."
Plainly put the Barbary Pirates are amongst us now and their presence is growing regardless of how the purveyors of Newspeak try to spin the Boston Marathon Jihadists as anything but; masked in the great lie of Political Correctness. The Fort Hood Jihad was masked as "Workplace Violence" and the wounded and killed have been denied purple crosses. It is a two pronged attack where the victims are somehow blamed for inciting the violence against them, where the U.S. brought on the Twin Towers attack and where we somehow failed the Brothers Tsarnaev & Maj. Nidal Hasan; that we created the culture and environment that provoked them into their violent outbursts.

The true irony is that the Tsarnaev Warning Came as Brennan (a converted Muslim) Purged Material 'Offensive' to Muslims, from all intelligence training manuals and now "The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: "Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense...Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis...." While the Secular Atheist left would have you believe that this great experiment in liberty was led by secular leaders the truth was that Washington was a Christian and lead by prayer. The US Army chaplaincy was born of a combination of desire and need: As he battled the British, Gen. George Washington desperately wanted Providence on his side but, to ensure this, his troops needed to be above reproach – and one way to ensure this was to have chaplains on board.

While we are being stripped of our Judeo-Christian heritage and our troops are being prevented from having their spiritual leavening it should be remembered that the U.S. Army and Marines lost 100 chaplains killed in action during WWII: a per capita casualty rate greater than any other branch of the services except the infantry and the Army Air Corps. They all knew exactly what they were fighting for and what they were fighting against; the occult underpinnings of National Socialism (Nazi) and systematic extermination of Europe's Jewish Population. It has been said about war that unless you know what you are fighting against and what you are fighting for you will never win. There is obviously an active and well-coordinated campaign to strip the constitutional and Judeo-Christian reasons for our war against the increasing violence of Extremists Muslim Jihadists. How much longer before "The shores of Tripoli" is removed from the Marine anthem?

All of the countries, terrorists groups and individuals who are openly espousing the extermination of Israel and the Jewish people, just like the Nazis did during WWII are driven by the radicalization of their faith, Islam. As long as the powers that be refuse to acknowledge that fact, under the guise of political correctness, we are in great peril. Perhaps Robert Griffin III summed it up best "In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness" RGIII was attacked for his candor. Martin Luther King dreamed of a day when men would be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. However it is a sad reality that we are living in precarious times when people are judged (and attacked) by the left (and their main stream propaganda machines) on the color of their message thus castigating the content of their character. Thus in the minds of the left, the first amendment only applies to those who aid, abet and promote the lefts agenda, its empowerment of the apparatchik of the expanding state to the detriment of Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

The coddling of and denial of the presence of the Barbary Pirates amongst us is treasonous, yet those who cry out amongst us just as Robert Griffin III espoused his true feelings on Political Correctness are attacked as viciously Senator Joe McCarthy. I predict that soon the vile and inaccurate term McCarthyism will be resurrected and smeared against those dare question for the truth. Those who dare question the obfuscation and dogma of the left will surely be nailed to the cross of political correctness, or face Maurice Ogden's Hangman for engaging in "Counter Revolutionary Activities." that resists the color of their subversive agenda, while the Barbary pirates complete their enslavement of this once great ship of state.
