9/11 Principal Architect: Through Muslim Immigration ‘America Will Expose Her Neck To Us For Slaughter’

I was going to dive into the latest investment activities/recommendations of the “crash prophets” for the remainder of this evening, but I can’t get something which Milwaukee County (Wisconsin) Sheriff David Clarke, Jr., said on FOX News Saturday about vetting particular Middle East refugees out of my mind:

We’re talking about abled-bodied, grown men, fighting-age, that should be back in Syria and back in the Middle East fighting for their country coming over to the United States to spread jihad

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Note that Sheriff Clarke said “spread jihad” as opposed to “carry out jihad.”

It’s possible Sheriff Clarke is aware of the interrogation sessions and conversations with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed- alleged principal architect of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks- by psychologist, retired Air Force Lt. Colonel, and CIA contractor James Mitchell, Ph. D. Back on November 23, 2016, Paul Bedard reported on the Washington Examiner website:

In Enhanced Interrogation, CIA contractor James Mitchell tells for the first time about his role interrogating al Qaeda principals, many like KSM still jailed at Guantanamo Bay. He details accounts of waterboarding and other interrogation sessions of the nation’s most notorious enemies.

None more so than Mohammed. Among the most fascinating aspects of the book are chatty discussions between KSM and Mitchell long after the waterboarding and before he was delivered to the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where he clammed- and lawyered- up…

Snippets obtained by Secrets from the book set for release next Tuesday from Crown Forum show that Muslim terror groups had a much bigger plan to crush America than just through attacks like 9/11.

Instead, the plan is to fill the country with like-minded Muslims through the country’s easy immigration laws and by having babies, and then using the U.S. legal and welfare system to turn the country into a system like Iran.

Consider this passage in the book, Enhanced Interrogation: Inside the Minds and Motives of the Islamic Terrorists Trying to Destroy America, where KSM reveals the plan to Mitchell:

“It would be nice,” he said, if al Qaeda or like-minded Islamists could bring America to its knees with catastrophic attacks, but that was unlikely to happen; “not practical” is the wording he used. From his perspective, the long war for Islamic domination wasn’t going to be won in the streets with bombs and bullets and bloodshed. No, it would be won in the minds of the American people.

He said the terror attacks were good, but the “practical” way to defeat America was through immigration and by outbreeding non-Muslims. He said jihadi-minded brothers would immigrate into the United States, taking advantage of the welfare system to support themselves while they spread their jihadi message. They will wrap themselves in America’s rights and laws for protection, ratchet up acceptance of Sharia law, and then, only when they were strong enough, rise up and violently impose Sharia from within. He said the brothers would relentlessly continue their attacks and the American people eventually would become so tired, so frightened, and so weary of war that they would just want it to end.

“Eventually,” KSM said, “America will expose her neck to us for slaughter.”

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Hmm. Two things came to mind reading this:

1. How did Dr. Mitchell know Khalid Sheikh Mohammed wasn’t just feeding him B.S.?

2. Enhanced Interrogation was released on November 29, 2016- a short time after Election Day and prior to President Trump taking office. Considering the CIA connection, some might suspect there could be a “hidden agenda” attached to the book (justifying “extreme vetting,” enhanced interrogation, and/or keeping Guantanamo Bay open for business, for example, “in the minds of the American people”).

I guess I’ll have to read it one of these days. In the meantime, “food for thought” considering current events.

Prepping: ‘It’s Become Less Out Of The Ordinary, Less Extreme’

Earlier today I stumbled across a pretty decent article about the current state of “prepping” in the United States on the Chicago Tribune website. I say “pretty decent” because I’m so used to seeing “hit job” pieces about the activity in the mainstream media in the past six years I’ve been running this blog.

Cheryl Stritzel McCarthy wrote the article entitled “Prepper movement, while not mainstream, no longer just for doomsday outliers.” In it, she touches on themes including:

-Prepper mindset
-.22 LR ammunition as SHTF currency
-Degrees of prepping
-Operations/Operational security (OPSEC)

Head on over to the Tribune website here to read the entire piece.

Resource Of The Week: In The Rabbit Hole Urban Survival Podcast

In yesterday’s post I talked about modern survivalist Jack Spirko and his advice for dealing with this election cycle’s intensifying insanity. I mentioned Spirko is the long-time host of The Survival Podcast, which I named a “Resource Of The Week” all the way back on March 4, 2011. Great stuff, and I still cherry-pick from the latest episodes posted on the TSP website on a regular basis.

There’s one other prepper/survival-related podcast I listen to these days:

In The Rabbit Hole Urban Survival Podcast

From the podcast section of the ITRH website:

After years of being frustrated that no one was fully addressing the concerns of urban survivalists, Aaron [Frankel] and Jonathan [Kanarek] took to the web and founded In The Rabbit Hole in February of 2010. Shortly after they’re long time friend and accomplice Jason joined the show to add a touch of “Red Neck Cajun”. Since then the show has enjoyed many great guests and a wide range of topics.

They are three city boys with a lifetime affinity for the outdoors, but a love of the city, passion for survival topics, and Libertarian Ideals…

“In The Rabbit Hole is about focusing first on the things that matter most: What’s likely to happen. Then preparing for it in a rational and productive way.”

These priorities of urban survival come from the focal points of Community, Health and Intelligence–referred to as “Survival CHI”.

Through a weekly podcast and articles, Aaron, Jonathan, and Jason remind people to “Stay safe and sound”. (Safe in person and sound in mind.)

From the Lone Star State, the trio reach out to people who are interested in taking personal responsibility for their own safety and well-being…

…And who just happen to live in the city.

While not a “long-time listener” to the podcast, I’ve noticed it’s not just urban preppers/survivalists who could learn a thing or two from the material presented. The ITRH site adds:

Hosts Aaron, Jason, and Jonathan cover topics such as:

Self Sufficiency
Food Storage
Homesteading in the city
Survival Book, Video, and Gear Reviews
Starting Off as a New Prepper
Financial Survival
Self Reliance
Preparing for Natural Disasters
Emergency Medicine
Firearms, Guns, and things that go bang
Self Defense
Disaster Psychology

Surveying the latest episodes listed on the ITRH website, episode 191, “Surviving Refugee Hell” (posted October 17)- with James Price, Founder/Director of Humanitarian Aid Security Forces (HASF)- sounds like my next listen.

Interested in tuning-in too? Head on over to the In The Rabbit Hole Urban Survival Podcast website here.

But before you do, there’s also this from the ITRH gang:

Not sure where to begin?

Two of ITRH’s most acclaimed episodes that paint a clear picture of what the Podcast is about are:

TEOTWAWKI Reality Check: What do you really need to be prepping for.

Survival CHI- Reloaded: The foundational principles of ITRH.

Signs Of The Time, Part 100

A milestone has been reached with the “Signs Of The Time” series of posts.

I wasn’t sure what material I’d use for post number 100, when manna from Heaven suddenly appeared in the form of a headline on the home page of my Internet service provider:

Why people won’t say the economy is booming

By most measures, the economy is doing great. So, why are people reluctant to admit it?

Obama: ‘We went through a really scary time’

In the accompanying piece, Sam Ro, managing editor at Yahoo! Finance, wrote Sunday:

By most measures, the economy is doing great. The US labor market is creating around 200,000 jobs a month, which has brought the unemployment rate tumbling to 5%. Meanwhile, home prices are up and stock prices (GSPC) are near all-time highs.

So, why are there so many people so reluctant to acknowledge how good things are today?

One word: trauma.

“Some people are still recovering from the trauma of what happened in 2007-2008,” President Barack Obama said in an interview with Yahoo Finance’s Nicole Sinclair. “You know, we went through a really scary time.”

Trauma has the ability to distort how we perceive our present reality…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Just when you thought you’ve heard everything, right?

It gets better. Ro continued:

Consider the joy that comes from jumping on a trampoline or the thrill one gets from speeding downhill on a bicycle. For many folks, the unexpected and painful reality of a nasty spill and a couple of fractured bones will forever take away the bliss that once came from those activities. The trampoline and bicycle will continue to offer the same experience, but the trauma can be so intense that it can force many to keep their feet on the ground.

Losing your job, getting evicted from your home, and watching the value of your retirement savings crash can be deeply distressing. And so even when you get a new job, move into a new home, and recoup all of your investment losses, that new persistent feeling of uncertainty that followed the traumatic will discount everything you have…

Any readers ever see that iconic sports film The Natural, starring Robert Redford? Is it just me, or does all this kind of remind you of that part in the movie where the club hires a shrink to talk to the players when everything is going wrong?


“Losing is a disease”
YouTube Video

No, not that bit where the ballplayer gets hit in the (g)nards. But that “losing is a disease” speech.

And just like Roy Hobbs rolled his eyes and walked out of the locker room, I wouldn’t blame any of you for moving on from this post after reading that stuff about “trauma.”

“Trauma has the ability to distort how we perceive our present reality”

I suspect the “present reality” is crystal-clear for a growing number of Americans- trauma not needed.

And in more than a few instances, their economic “reality” definitely does not match what’s being peddled by Washington and its allies in the mainstream media these days.

Resource Of The Week: ATSN’s Stop The Threat TV Show

I’ve now been at the new place a little more than a year, and I still don’t have my beloved satellite TV service hooked up. Truth be told, I’m so busy these days I don’t have that much time to watch television. However, I do miss some of the shows that were only on “pay TV.” One that I used to watch on a regular basis was Stop the Threat. From the American Trigger Sports Network website:

American Trigger Sports Network presents “Stop the Threat”, hosted by James B. Towle, featuring a rotating round table of expert guest panelists as they offer an informed discussion aimed at armed citizens on legal gun ownership, the use of deadly force, and how one may avoid becoming a victim, or respond to a life or death situation. This series may save your life!


“ATSN Stop the Threat television series promo”
YouTube Video

I used to watch it on the Pursuit Channel, which adds:

They analyze life-threatening crime scenes reenacted from real crime scenarios happening across the country. With more citizens, legal gun owners, and viewers becoming interested in protecting themselves and their families, Stop the Threat has opened the conversation of a previously neglected subject that could help save lives.

Very intense yet very informative. That’s what I used to think of the show.

How about you? Seeing that past episodes can be viewed for FREE via the Stop the Threat page on the ATSN website.

As of tonight, I count 36 episodes archived, each running somewhat longer than 20 minutes.

If you are going to watch the show, keep in mind the warning that’s prominently displayed at the beginning of each episode:

VIEWER WARNING: Contains extreme violence and is intended for mature audiences only. Viewer discretion is advised.

Adds a lot more realism to the crime reenactment, if you ask me.

While the last episode released looks to be from April 14, 2014, according to the ATSN Facebook page on August 6:

New season is coming soon!!!

Until then, you can watch hours and hours of Stop the Threat archived on the American Trigger Sports Network website here (scroll down to bottom of page).

Seen On The Streets, Part 9

Remember when I blogged last week about bread, eggs, and milk disappearing from grocery store shelves before a severe weather event?

I was in the northwest suburbs of Chicago last Thursday attending a wake. I had already been there for a while when I headed downstairs to the “break” room. I found myself talking to one of the other attendees, and the conversation turned to the recent “polar vortex” and the accompanying snow that pummeled the Chicagoland area. This person mentioned to me how she was at a grocery store during the severe weather event and noticed only one loaf of bread left on the shelves. She confided in me that her and her family aren’t really big bread-eaters. Yet, she thought to herself that she’d better grab that last loaf before that particular staple food was all gone.

At that point, we were interrupted by someone helping themselves to some food from the table we were standing in front of.

But I did manage to ask her real quick, “So, did you end up buying that last loaf of bread?”

To which she replied, “Yes I did!”

Probably not going to eat the bread, but still snapped it up anyway.

I wonder what those psychologists I mentioned last week in that bread/eggs/milk post would say about that?

Bread, Eggs, And Milk Disappear From Grocery Store Shelves Prior To Severe Winter Weather

This past weekend, I was watching the local news prior to the snow and “polar vortex” that descended on the Chicago area when the co-anchors started talking about a photo submitted by a Lake View grocery store. It depicted a number of barren shelves where loaves of bread used to be displayed. One anchor proceeded to tell viewers that bread, eggs, and milk typically disappear from grocery stores and supermarkets prior to these types of events.

Bread, eggs, and milk? Okay, I can see that.

This isn’t just a Chicagoland thing either. Nick Schneider reported on the website of southern Indiana’s Greene County Daily World back on January 6, 2010:

Mark Angell, president of Angell’s Food Center in Linton, says it’s kind of a retailing mystery why people seem to flock to the store and stock up on staple items like bread, milk and eggs whenever a big winter storm is predicted.

Empty shelves for those items are not unusual…

When asked why there seems to be likening for bread, milk and eggs as pre-storm supplies, Angell replied, “We have never been able to figure that out. For some reason, bread and milk are the items of choice and that’s what they come after.”

Bloomfield IGA office manager Mandy Donovan also said she’s noticed a rush for the “Big 3” — bread, milk and eggs — whenever a storm is headed toward Greene County.

“They are the staples from back in ‘the day’. Whenever you’d get snowed in, you’d have those things on hand. We joke around and say every time it snows, they (the customers) want French Toast,” she said with a laugh…

French Toast. Yum. All this talk of food is really making it difficult to hold out until lunch time.

In all seriousness, people cleaning out bread, eggs, and milk before a severe weather event is something that’s been investigated at the psychological level. Laurie L. Dove recently authored a piece entitled “Why do people buy up all the bread and milk before a storm hits?” on Discovery’s HowStuffWorks website, and said:

Rain, sleet or snow, there’s milk in the refrigerator and bread in the basket. This may sound a bit like the delivery mantra of the U.S. mail service, but it’s actually the tactic most Americans employ during severe weather. And this behavior offers clues as to the motivations driving them.

The compulsive desire to stockpile perishables isn’t always based on logical behavior. “The thought to get milk before a storm is followed by the action or compulsion to go out and stockpile it. In one way or another, we spend a lot of time and energy trying to feel in control, and buying things you might throw out still gives the person a sense of control in an uncontrollable situation,” says Lisa Brateman, a New York City-based psychotherapist.

In contrast, filling your cart with cans of beans and tuna — or any selection of non-perishables — sends the message that you expect the storm to keep you homebound for an extended period. Although practical, non-perishables are a psychological admission that you’ve surrendered to waiting out the storm and its aftermath; perishables are about optimism.

“Buying perishables is like saying, ‘the storm will be over soon and I won’t be stuck in this situation for long,'” says Judy Rosenberg, Ph.D., a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice in Los Angeles…

Interesting. Without delving too deeply into this matter, I chalk up the buying of these staple foods to the fact that one can make a variety of tasty meals out of them. French Toast included (stomach grumbling).

While I’m a big believer of having food needs taken care of long before extreme weather hits, in the event that I ever find myself doing some last-minute grocery shopping (girlfriend will be laughing pretty hard when she reads this), hitting the sections where the bread, eggs, and milk are kept first is probably not a bad idea.

Or else I might have to contend with the following…
