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.

More Wisconsin Welfare Reform Coming?

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is pushing for additional welfare reform in the state. Reid Wilson reported Monday afternoon on The Hill website:

Twenty years after a Republican governor of Wisconsin spearheaded an ambitious welfare reform package, the current governor is trying to build momentum for a new round of reforms.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Monday said he would ask the state’s Republican-led legislature to undertake one of the most aggressive welfare reform packages since a wave of new measures passed in the mid-1990s.

Walker’s plan, “Wisconsin Works for Everyone,” would impose new work requirements on both able-bodied adults with school-age children who receive state food assistance and those who receive housing assistance. Both work plans, which would be tested on a pilot basis, would require recipients to be employed for at least 80 hours per month, or to be enrolled in job training programs. Those who do not meet work requirements would see part of their benefits cut…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Food stamp work requirements for abled-bodied adults without dependents have existed in Wisconsin since April 2015.

As for it’s neighbor to the south, critics contend the food stamp program in Illinois is ripe for abuse. A work requirement does not exist for even abled-bodied adults without dependents. According to the Illinois Department of Human Services:

“We expect people who can work to try and do so.”

Hmm.

Head on over to The Hill website here to read the entire piece.

Signs Of The Time, Part 75

In an era of stagnant wages and a rising cost of living, having a job doesn’t guarantee an individual can make ends meet.

In the past, many Americans would rise to the challenge, finding and working a second or third job if that’s what it took to put food on the table.

These days, it’s just easier for able-bodied, able-minded men and women to latch onto the government “tit” rather than work.

And plenty do it- no doubt about that.

Enter Scott Carroll. A minor league baseball player when he shot the following two-and-a-half years ago, this Kansas City, Missouri-native proclaimed to the world he would do whatever was required to eke out a living:


“Scott Carroll Will Endorse ANYTHING!”
YouTube Video

Okay, so Carroll was just having a good time and probably wasn’t hurting as much as many other Americans as a professional baseball player. But there’s still an important lesson to be taken away from this funny video:

Scott Carroll just recently made his big-league debut for the Chicago White Sox at age 29.

I doubt his TV pitchman skills got this right-handed pitcher to where he’s at today.

Hard work, perhaps?

Welcome to the majors- and Chicago- Mr. Carroll.

Welfare Recipient: ‘Can You Really Blame Us? I Mean, I Get To Sit Home, I Get To Go Visit My Friends All Day, I Even Get To Smoke Weed’

“The point is these programs are not typically hammocks for people to just lie back and relax. These programs are almost always temporary means for hardworking people to stay afloat while they try to find a new job or go into school to retrain themselves for the jobs that are out there, or sometimes just to cope with a bout of bad luck. Progressives should be open to reforms that actually strengthen these programs and make them more responsive to a 21st century economy.”

-U.S. President Barack Obama, remarking on economic mobility, December 4, 2013

And then there’s “Lucy,” calling in to KLBJ radio station in Austin, Texas, in October. This alleged welfare recipient told listeners:

I just wanted to say while workers out there- people like you that are preaching morality at people like me who are living on welfare- can you really blame us? I mean, I get to sit home, I get to go visit my friends all day, I even get to smoke weed. Me, and people that I know that are illegal immigrants that don’t contribute to society- we still gonna get paid. Our checks are going to come in the mail every month, and it’s going to be on time. And we get subsidized housing. We even get presents delivered to our kids for Christmas. Why should I work?

Personally, I think there may be a lot more “Lucy’s” out there than President Obama’s remarks would have you believe.

4 Out Of 5 U.S. Adults Suffer ‘Economic Insecurity’ During Their Lives

Quite a few financial news websites I dropped by this weekend were buzzing about a just-released Associated Press article that said 4 out of 5 American adults wrestle with “economic insecurity” during their lives. From the CBS News website yesterday:

Four out of 5 U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near-poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream.

Survey data exclusive to The Associated Press points to an increasingly globalized U.S. economy, the widening gap between rich and poor, and the loss of good-paying manufacturing jobs as reasons for the trend.

According to the AP piece, economic insecurity is defined as “a year or more of periodic joblessness, reliance on government aid such as food stamps or income below 150 percent of the poverty line.” The risk is currently at 79 percent, but the current widening income inequality gap suggests that by 2030, close to 85 percent of working-age adults will experience such hardship.

In addition, the AP article talked about poverty America today. According to the Associated Press:

Nationwide, the count of America’s poor remains stuck at a record number: 46.2 million, or 15 percent of the population, due in part to lingering high unemployment following the recession.

Seeing as that this article comes on the heels of Barack Obama’s “A Better Bargain for the Middle Class” speech on middle-class America’s woes last week, instead of it being an indictment of the President’s economic policies as some have claimed, perhaps its real purpose is to provide more ammunition to the White House for a renewed push on economic initiatives they’ve been championing for a while, such as wealth redistribution.

An interesting article, which you can read here on the CBS News website.

Marc Faber Talks Again About Investing In Remote Farmland To Counter Growing Social Tension

Investment adviser and fund manager Dr. Marc Faber attended the CFA Institute’s Third Annual Middle East Investment Conference in Qatar these past two days. According to Ed Bace, the CFA’s head of education for the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) regions, “Doctor Doom” (labeled that by the press for his contrarian investment style that is often interpreted as being bearish) told conference attendees that continuing growth in Asia and South America will put further pressure on the world’s resources, thereby leading to increased geopolitical tension. As such, the Swiss-born Faber shared the following investment recommendations. Bace wrote on the conference website earlier today:

So how should investors play this situation? Faber states that diversification is key alongside low leverage. His recommendations are as follows: cash and bonds are not hugely attractive, given negative real interest rates, but equity-like corporate bonds could form 25% of a portfolio. Another 25% could be made up of stocks, especially in emerging markets, with a further 25% in precious metals (which tend to be severely underweighted in a typical pension fund). Real estate in certain areas (such as Asia) could make up the remainder. He added that US house prices are looking decidedly cheap.

Faber closed his speech by emphasizing that the crucial question over the next decade is not “where will my returns be highest?” but “where will I lose the least money?” In fact, he believes that losses of 50% should be considered as a relative success. He advised that an investment in remote farmland could pay off, as growing social tensions could make urban life intolerable. In his view the welfare state has evolved from the many helping the few to the few helping the many and that the inevitable crash, or “rebooting the computer,” will simply have to be endured. Whether this crisis occurs soon, as further credit expansion is voluntarily abandoned, or occurs later, as the currency system meets final and total catastrophe, Faber cannot predict.

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

The investment in remote farmland that Dr. Faber talked about reminds me of a piece I read on The Times (UK) website back on February 22, 2010. Leo Lewis wrote in that article:

The world’s most powerful investors have been advised to buy farmland, stock up on gold and prepare for a “dirty war” by Marc Faber, the notoriously bearish market pundit, who predicted the 1987 stock market crash…

Speaking today, Dr Faber said that investors, who control billions of dollars of assets, should start considering the effects of more disruptive events than mere market volatility.

“The next war will be a dirty war,” he told fund managers: “What are you going to do when your mobile phone gets shut down or the internet stops working or the city water supplies get poisoned?”

His investment advice, which was the first keynote speech of CLSA’s annual investment forum in Tokyo, included a suggestion that fund managers buy houses in the countryside because it was more likely that violence, biological attack and other acts of a “dirty war” would happen in cities.

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

Sobering stuff. But I wouldn’t expect anything less from the publisher of The Gloom Boom & Doom Report.
