Welcome to the Slaughterhouse: Who's the terroirst now?!

Welcome to the Slaughterhouse, America!!

On November, 5th, 2009 39-year-old Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire at a processing center at Fort Hood, the country's largest military installation located in Texas. Thirteen people were killed and 29 were wounded. 5 days later President Barack Obama addressed the survivors, their families, and many other soldiers who risk their lives on a sometimes daily basis for our very freedoms and way of life. He said it was, "hard to comprehend the twisted logic that led to this tragedy." And added, "No faith justifies these murderous and craven acts; no just and loving God looks upon them with favor… And for what he has done, we know that the killer will be met with justice – in this world and the next."

Really?!?! “Hard to comprehend”? From where I sit when someone of Middle Eastern descent stands on a table with 2 loaded handguns and shouts "Allahu Akbar!" — "God is great!" in Arabic — before opening fire on an unarmed group of individuals, it is pretty darn clear to me what his motivations are! And add to that, "U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda” according to two American officials briefed on classified material in the case who told ABC News. Not to mention, the fact that Hasan berated our involvement in the war at every chance to anyone who would listen to him on and off base, and was publically angered at his impending deployment to fight his “brothers in Allah”, as he had allegedly been heard saying.

So to say, "No faith justifies these murderous and craven acts” just simply isn’t true. And, no, it's not hard to comprehend. It was the act of an Islamic terrorist who mowed down dozens of people all because he believed he was doing the will of Allah in accordance with the Koran.

It’s that simple.

But, to add insult to injury, the President did not one time mention terror, terrorist, or terrorism when he spoke on Tuesday. What more evidence does it take for our President to admit that this was an act of terror? He did not even name Major Nidal Hasan, the terrorist accused of the killings.

But, was Hasan REALLY a terrorist?

United States Law Code – the law that governs the entire country – contains a definition of terrorism embedded in its requirement that Annual Country reports on Terrorism be submitted by the Secretary of State to Congress every year. (From U.S. Code Title 22, Ch.38, Para. 2656f(d)

It states in part, “the term ‘terrorism’ means premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents.” As of this act, the victims in themselves were indeed noncombatants. Meaning: Army base civilians not at that time engaged in combat. And Hasan played at very obviously premeditated, politically AND religiously motivated violence.

Independent Senator, Joe Lieberman even said "... There are very, very strong warning signs here that Dr. Hasan had become an Islamist extremist and, therefore, this was a terrorist act... In the U.S. Army, this is not a matter of constitutional freedom of speech. If Hasan was showing signs, saying to people that he had become an Islamist extremist, the U.S. Army has to have zero tolerance. He should have been gone."

So starts the ‘blame game’!

So, who is really to blame? The military for cow towing to political correctness and not profiling the shooter from the start? The CIA for not sharing important information about Hasan with the Armed Forces that they apparently had? The soldiers themselves because one of their own once called Hasan a ‘towel head’? President Bush for starting a war in Iraq? Obama for staring one in Afghanistan? Islam? Christians?... Maybe the shooter himself? No, that would be too obvious. The REAL culprit seems to be guns, according to Chicago Mayor Daley.

Here’s a quote from Mayor McDumb-ass shortly after the shooting: “Unfortunately, America loves guns. We love guns to a point where that, uh… we see devastation on a daily basis. You don’t blame a group.”

Yeah, you don’t blame a group— especially a radically religious group of terrorists hell-bent on the destruction of us and our very freedoms because their "God" told them to. And you certainly don’t blame a person who may or may not belong to a particular group that has the power to vote for you. Because, let’s face it, it’s easier to blame an inanimate object that DOESN’T vote.

But yet it was an ARMED police officer that brought this monster down eventually. And, let’s face facts, the damage would have been very much mitigated if even ONE of the victims would have been armed, as well. Unfortunately, even in the military-- unless you are in a combat situation or a Military Police Officer-- you are not authorized to carry a firearm. So the death toll was what it was.

Mayor McCheese, with all due respect, guns aren’t to blame. Guns could have AVERTED this cowardly act of terrorism and saved the day!!!

And, contrary to President Obama’s personal confusion as to how this act could have occurred, it's clear what the root of the problem truly is anyway. And I don’t even need to say it out loud. You and I both know who and what is truly to blame.

Still, thank goodness for one thing. Thank goodness the shooter was injured and taken out, but not killed. Instead, he is awake and talking as of 2 days ago. Gee, I wonder if his first words were, "Oh shit! I'm alive?!?!? Those MP’s don’t look like the virgins Allah promised me. *gulp* This can't be good...." And why? To paraphrase the infamous words of Colonel Trautman from Rambo III, “God would have mercy. WE won't."

Welcome to the Slaughterhouse: Swine Flu for you?!

"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." George Washington

Welcome to the Slaughterhouse, America!!

By Nicholas Meyeres

Raise your hand if you are sick and tired of hearing about the dreaded Swine Flu, and that we HAVE to make sure we take the vaccine the Government is offering us!

Yeah, me too. But, unfortunately I feel this is just the beginning, and before it's all over, we will be in for far more than just rhetoric and fear-mongering that we are all in mortal peril because of one sick pig.

If only we could have a little perspective on things such as these, we'd be much better off. For instance:

- 36,000 people die of the seasonal flu every year in the US.
- The White House claims 1000 have died from Swine Flu so far in over 10 months in the US.
- However, that number is grossly overstated since the majority of cases where folks THOUGHT they had Swine Flu were not actually tested by their Doctors. The Doctors made the assessment that they MAY have had the Swine Flu, but the CDC says it was never proven. This larger number is the number that the President's office sites for the over 1000 people that they claim have died from the illness.
- Of those people that have died, they say 100 have been children. This is the number most often in the news; obviously preying on our duty to our children as a Nation.
- But of ALL of the cases where death occurred, ALL of the people were elderly, already had a major illness, or were children with compromised or weak immune systems.
- Not one SINGLE healthy adult has died from Swine Flu!

But even if the high numbers the White House has put out are accurate, it pales in comparison to the numbers of people that die annually because of the regular flu virus-- we need that perspective right now and not be won over by the fear-mongering, people. Afterall, it's not like this is the first time we were scared into believing that the Swine Flu would take us all.

The 1976 swine flu outbreak, also known as the 'swine flu fiasco' killed just one person and hospitalized only 13. Some recipients of the vaccine later developed Guillain-Barré syndrome, a disorder affecting the peripheral nervous system. Overall, about 500 cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome occurred because of the vaccine, resulting in the deaths of over 30 people.

President Ford was acting on the advice of medical experts, who believed they were dealing with a virus potentially as deadly as the one that caused the 1918 Spanish influenza pandemic. So, mass vaccinations started in October, but within weeks reports started coming in of people developing Guillain-Barré syndrome, a paralyzing nerve disease, right after taking the shot. Within two months, 500 people were affected, and more than 30 died. Amid a rising uproar and growing public reluctance to risk the shot, federal officials abruptly canceled the program Dec. 16.

In the end, 40 million Americans were inoculated, and there was no epidemic. More technically advanced examination of the virus revealed later that it was nowhere near as deadly as the 1918 influenza virus. The only recorded fatality from swine flu itself was an unfortunate Pvt. in the Armed Forces named Lewis.

Does any of this sound familiar? It should, because much of it is mimicking what is happening 33 years later.

Take this as a warning to NOT take the vaccine today which was hastily made just like it was in 1976!

But if that wasn't enough-- for you animal lovers out there: One of the key ingredients used in ALL flu vaccines (including the vaccines being prepared for the swine flu pandemic) is the diseased flesh of African Green Monkeys. Ingredients used in the vaccine are derived from the kidneys of these monkeys who are first infected with the virus, then allowed to fester the disease, and finally, are killed so that their diseased organs can be used make vaccine ingredients. This is done in a cruel, inhumane "flesh factory" environment where the monkeys are subjected to a process that includes "incubating said inoculated cell line to permit proliferation of said virus."

And lastly, don't forget one of the most important pieces of this frightening puzzle our President is trying to put together for us: Presidential Directive 51, which was made in the closing weeks of the administration of President George W. Bush. It came after months of heated internal debate about the balance of power and the role of the military in a time of crisis, participants said. Officials said the Obama administration had left the plan completely intact.

It states among many other things: The sitting President can claim power to execute procedures for continuity of the federal government in the event of a "catastrophic emergency". Such an emergency is construed as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions." This Directive also gives the power of the President to completely cancel any and all elections in the United Sates for an undisclosed period of time of his own choosing.

The President's office has already declared America in a National emergency because of Swine Flu. It wouldn't be to difficult of a stretch to turn that "National" emergency into a "catastrophic" emergency. And then, we have a brand new problem to deal with. Don't think it could happen? Let's just hope I am the tin-foil hat wearing, Conservative nutcase Homeland Security warned you about.

The bottom line is this: If you live a healthy life-style, complete with some moderate daily exercise, plenty of liquids, and free from the things that compromise our immune systems like excess alcohol consumption, illicit drug use of any kind, cigarettes and foods we know to be harmful to us, you will likely be just fine. Even if you indulge in these things once in a while, the chances of you developing Swine Flu is still very small. And if you do get the flu, do what you normally do: get plenty of rest, stay hydrated, take TESTED medications that have been on the market for years if need be, and you will get through it like you have gotten through every other flu you have ever had.
