The Right Wing Still Misunderstands Terrorism And Religion.

While the right wingers are distracted from the real issue of terrorism and religious idealism, the race is being won by the terrorists we ourselves produce,  who want to and surely will, do us harm in the future... if the right wingers have their way.

Firstly we have to ask, how are the right wingers wrong, and if so, then what is the correct way to address the terrorism issue? 

Well, first thing that may surprise right wingers is the fact that terrorists may change their minds and vice versa, good people may decide to become terrorists. 

The right wing is concerned that Syrian refugees, Mexicans, and all Muslims around the world need to be stopped from entering the US because they are potentially terrorists, this is just a strawman argument. It has teeth, just not sharp ones. Compared to the two potential terrorists that sneak into the US, we create a thousand potential ones, in our backyard.

The bigger picture is for decades we have been creating our own terrorists without any help from the Muslim community, they are made in our prisons and in our streets. We have the largest prison population this side of the Milky Way. Not all terrorists manufactured in the US prison system are brown and Middle Eastern in nature.... they are blacks and whites.

Many of our home grown terrorists are white and come from a non Middle Eastern background, while others are black and come from the inner cities where there is little hope of ever having a meaningful life, and once you have been dragged through the Justice system, which just takes kids who have their lives ahead of them, chew them up and spit them out without any hope of them being able to pick up and move on... we create potential terrorists by the thousands. 

We make this happen in larger numbers than the number of terrorists that can migrate here.

When would-be terrorists see a nation that will nurture their children and do our best to educate, love and protect them, that alone can change one's mind for the better and thereby help someone to not go off the deep end and perform terroristic acts. 

The San Bernardino shooters left their child here, with the Grandmother, to become a meaningful and productive part of a great society... the same society they had rebelled against, for their own reasons. Their parental love and best wishes for their child was bigger than whatever reason fooled them into taking their lives down that darkened path.

Like many other criminal organizations, once you join you are not allowed to leave, it may have been the same for these parents. After they got to the US and started a family, they realized their mistake, but could not stop the terroristic plan because usually, the group will kill all your family, so in effect, they had just given their lives to save their child and family members here and abroad.

When a kid who did a stupid thing is thrown to the wolves in a terrible prison system, there is little hope for him or her to come back into society without hate and anger coarsing through their veins... this is the easiest way to create home grown terrorists, who become gangbangers, school or workplace shooters and religious idealists with a special propensity to act out against society in general... and Planned Parenthood offices. 

American history is littered with groups and incidents that fall within the confines of terrorism, from the early 1900's to San Bernardino and the Planned Parenthood shootings recently.

Our politicians are not stupid even though they pretend they are, by adopting the worst and most heinous policies, which are not geared toward Nation Building, but instead is geared toward tearing down all the programs that are needed to help impoverished individuals receive Federal help to turn their lives around... even defenseless children are made to suffer with the cutting of school feeding programs by the right wing politicians.

Those who raise the argument that Federal dollars are not for use in Nation Building are absolutely wrong, this is the best use of our tax dollars. Revitalizing our communities will make us a stronger country, a safer country.

Anyone can decide to become a terrorist, for whatever reasons they choose, so by prohibiting one religious group, the Muslims, from traveling to America, the right wing is still not addressing the issue. We simply have to have a more intelligent discussion and approach to terrorism. Home grown terrorism can result in larger numbers than immigrant terrorists sneaking in.

It is no secret that people become radicalized in our prisons and our impoverished communities at a much higher rate than any amount of terrorists that will sneak in within the crowds of refugees. Anyone can decide to become a terrorist, so it is impossible to see a terrorist from the outside, and we can't read their minds. We have many terrorist events in the US that are not committed by those of Middle Eastern descent.... and they are not brown in color either. 

We have even had some that are not religious in their terroristic acts, such as Tim McVeigh's bombing of a Federal Building.

I think if we take proper care of our prisoners and make sure they have a productive life to return to, we will face one million less terrorists, and the few dozen that we do otherwise encounter, will seem a whole lot less scary to right wingers.

ISIS Operatives May Be Trained By Unsuspecting US Militias.

We are all too familiar with the terror instigated by the ISIS group and the ensuing race to get out of the affected regions by frightened citizens. This panic to leave terrorized regions has created possibly the largest migration of Middle Eastern immigrants to Western and European shores seeking asylum.
There are no traditional borders anymore, as a culture of terror or an ideal is hard to defeat as it can be spread to anywhere and anyone regardless of borders.

Independent.co.uk.... 

"Early in 2014, Isis released one of its first videos. Largely unseen in Europe, it had neither the slick, cutting-edge professionalism of its later execution tapes nor the haunting “nasheed” music that accompanies most of its propaganda. Instead, a hand-held camera showed a bulldozer pushing down a rampart of sand that had marked the border between Iraq and Syria. As the machine destroyed the dirt revetment, the camera panned down to a handwritten poster lying in the sand. “End of Sykes-Picot”, it said... "

"Like many hundreds of thousands of Arabs in the Middle East, for whom Sykes-Picot was an almost cancerous expression, I watched this early Isis video in Beirut. The bloody repercussions of the borders that the British and French diplomats, Mark Sykes and François Georges-Picot, drew in secret during the First World War – originally giving Syria, Mount Lebanon and northern Iraq to the French, and Palestine, Transjordan and the rest of Iraq to the British – are known to every Arab, Christian and Muslim and, indeed, every Jew in the region. They eviscerated the governorates of the old dying Ottoman empire and created artificial nations in which borders, watchtowers and hills of sand separated tribes, families and peoples. They were an Anglo-French colonial production."

In response to immigrants seeking asylum in the United States, many state Governors have been putting blocks into place to prevent mainly Syrian refugees from being allowed into the US, with the premise that this will help keep ISIS operatives out.

While this is an understandable response by lawmakers, unfortunately it is not going to work as the terrorist ideology and culture is spread by words from one person to another, from one jihadist to another, from words and misconstrued teachings on the internet, from videos on websites and youtube... on social networking sites like Facebook.

There are already operatives in the US who will follow any group that comes along and fits into their ideals, today it is ISIS, yesterday it was Al Queda, tomorrow it will be some other misguided group.

There were a few dozen armed Militia groups in the US before Barrack Obama was elected to be POTUS.... this turned into literally hundreds of Militia groups after Obama's election. 

Armed Militias are an easy target for ISIS operatives to join and get military training. You can't always spot a terrorist, they are not always brown or black in colour. You cannot prove what religion or religious ideology a person subscribes to. Anyone can say that he is a Christian, or any other religion, and it is easy to learn the ways of said religion and therefore blend in.

Many operatives are accepted into groups simply because they have a prison record, something that all but proves that the individual is anti-government and would make a great soldier for whatever cause the group has. Prisons are where terrorists are made or converted. 

It is widely known that once in prison, many are led to the alter of religion after which they are easily radicalized. These ex prisoners can simply say they are of the desired religious persuasion, join the hundreds of militias in the US, or even form their own, and get training and then lay in wait for the right moments to strike. There are thousands of prisoners who have found religion in prison, being released from prison every week.

I think this is happening right now. While we are distracted with trying to block immigrants from entering the US, there are thousands of potential terror operatives getting trained in Militia camps nationwide.... the cat is already out of the bag.

There is also no way to stop them from purchasing guns and ammunition in the US.

Republicans Still Don't Understand Nuclear...

Ten years ago Iran delayed inspections of a nuclear site for 6 months while they attempted to clean up the site. Uranium material was still detected after the clean up. This was explained by Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz tonight on MSNBC's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell when asked about the 24 day inspection time on the Iran Nuclear deal.

That 24 day time frame is actually the first time there has been a specified inspection time frame, It is divided into two parts, the first two weeks is set aside for the relevant authorities to address the issues and concerns with Iran, after which if deemed necessary, the inspections would be carried out in ten days. 

There is a reason that when you see scientists working on Nuclear stuff they are always dressed appropriately, covered from head to toe in Hazmat suits. This is largely for their own safety as microscopic radioactive particles are like invisible dust flying everwhere. It coats everything and is impossible to totally clean or hide, and are easily detectable.

Mary Matalin when confronted by Bill Maher on episode 359, about quitting coal energy, kept insisting that then we must go to Nuclear energy. Bill reminded her of Fukushima as a good reason to not build anymore Nuclear sites as she was clearly suggesting. She really thought she had a smart counter argument to the eradication of coal energy plants.

I would also remind Republicans that we should go nuclear... the sun is the largest nuclear reactor in our galaxy, and all we need to do is invent something called solar panels, and point them towards the sun. Oh wait! We already did. Bill missed that.

Bill rightly pointed out that solar energy will also provide twice the amount of jobs. This is something Republicans should be really excited about.

Of course you do know that a Nuclear Iran was caused by the Bush Administration...

Trump Bows And Begs Hispanic Leaders And Hispanic Voters For Forgiveness.

Donald Trump has learned a valuable lesson this week. This is evident in his seemingly 'hat in hand' approach to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, begging for forgiveness of his harsh tone and ultimately begging for latinos' support in his presidential run.

Trump met on Tuesday with the CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Javier Palomarez, and will be made to appear to the chamber on October 8th for a question and answer forum.

  CNN   "It's kind of interesting, the dichotomy between the private Donald Trump and the public Donald Trump. He listened a lot more than he spoke," Palomarez said. "He never once interrupted me."
At one point, Palomarez said Trump joked that "he didn't need the Hispanic vote" as he referenced his high poll numbers.
"But I think we both know that he's recognized that in fact, he does need the Hispanic vote," Palomarez added. He said Trump earnestly expressed his desire to win over the Hispanic community, saying: "I want it...I feel like I've been mischaracterized and treated unfairly and my name has been slandered to some extent with this audience."

Trump boasted that his biggest ace in the hole was his money, and that may have been so... until now.

 He boasted time and again that he is above his competitors, because he is super rich and does not need anyone elses money for support. He boasted that while the other Republican candidates had to get their support from other rich persons, and as a result they will be indebted and open to paying the piper when the time comes, he will not bow or be indebted to anyone. 

He thought that he was powerful enough to do what he wanted, powerful enough to say what he wanted, and was powerful enough to insult the Latino population and walk away unscathed. He was wrong. 

He is as green a wanna be politician, as they come. He is a beginner, he kept his eye on the ball, but he took his eye off the field that he had to run on, to get the win. That field of voters being... the Latinos.

He is now being seen as nothing more than a regular man with foot in mouth disease, a regular candidate, a regular politician... in that he does not need to be bought, he can be made to beg for free. 

He just woke up to the fact that his money can't help him now, to win votes... he needs to be respectful... bow... and beg.

Trump learned that he does not need to be bribed or donated to, for him to be humbled and made to know his place in an election. 

The sleeping giant that he insulted, causing it to show its hand, is a coalition of over 300,000 Latino businesses. This coalition, by itself, generates some 4 billion dollars annually. 

He realizes that not only do you need money to win an election, but you also need votes. He realizes now that he need the votes from the fastest growing voting block in America... the Latinos.

Trump realizes that he does not need to take someones donations to be indebted to them, to be made to bow, grovel and beg to them... he realizes that he is asking something of them, he needs them, not because they can give him money, but he needs their votes.

Funny enough, Trump has run into another wall of his building... the Latino wall... of voters.

Donald Trump's People Can't Find Any White Illegal Immigrants.

Donald Trump is not a fickle man, he is very determined and professional. His people are professionals who have the best resources at their command. They are quite thorough in their jobs and only gives Donald the very best information available... he pays them well for this.

Donald is an honest man, he has said that he is not paying politicians anymore, to get favors. He confessed that he used to extend the graciousness of his wallet to politicians in times gone by, but he is now a reformed and honest man... as he insists that he can not be bought by other rich men while on his journey to acquire the office of the president, nor will he take 'donations' when he gets there.

Donald Trump is a fair and unbiased man. To him it is definitely not a race issue. The world is now aware that The Donald has gotten the down low from his people, they must have told him that there are about 12 million illegal Mexicans in the US and he says he has plans to have them removed. He said he has the plan to do just that, and we will have to wait to see it happen... he also said it would be very easy to get the job done.

Apparently his people have already searched and found only Mexicans illegally here in the US, who by the way he thinks are rapists, criminals and murderers. He says he is sure some of them are good people, but his statements reflect the sentiment that there are no white or other peoples illegally here from around the globe... obviously his people would have found them and told him so. 

There are no illegal Germans, Russians, Italians, Irish, Chinese, Indians, Pakistanis, Africans, Haitians, Jamaicans, West Indians, Philippians, Spanish, French, Greek, Dutch or any other such illegals of the fairer or darker skin types... there are only Mexicans, and as such, his actions would be tapered to solving this Mexican dilemma. His really competent people has surely intimated to him as much, hence his bold and accurate statements to the facts of the matter.

For every Mexican that comes across the southern border, thousands from around the globe fly in to our airports, sail into our ports, and cross our northern border with Canada. 

According to Donald's people, none of these thousands of people over stay their visas. If they did, then surely Donald would have been told of this and would have been advised by his people, that it is not only Mexicans he needed to deport... but a few million more foreigners as well.

I am sure these wonderfully thorough  'people' of Donald's, would obviously do a bang up job informing President Trump on how to conduct the country's business in foreign policy issues. 

I am sure these meticulous 'people' would be able to work out the best solutions to deal with China and other BRIC countries.

I am sure these well informed 'people' will have a well laid out plan to deal with the ideology in the middle east that breeds radical Islamic followers... because for every thousand ISIS fighters, there is another radical group waiting in the wings for their turn at the trough.

I shudder to think of the disadvantage other countries would be at when facing President Trump and his people, as the globe tries to trade with the US.

I am sure President Trump and his people would do immaculate work when dealing with foreign Nuclear powers... I am sure of this. Obviously Trump does have the complete backing of the GOP, the Mexicans and the 'minorities.

Donald Trump has his finger on the pulse of this great country... and the globe, just like he has his finger on the pulse of the immigration debate.... I am sure of this... his 'people' have let him say as much.

His people let him infer that the 14th ammendment can be challenged because it is unconstitutional. He said his lawyers are on it! He says 'anchor babies' should not be afforded legality and they should be deported.

MSNBC The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell ... Judge Sandford in 1844 settled the case of Julia Lynch in which he stated that she was born and briefly lived in New York, and was thus entitled to her family's inheritance and fortunes of the Saratoga Springs mineral water empire. She was an 'anchor baby.' ... He explained that the law of that time made you a subject of the King whenever you were born in territories that were subject to his command. 

Donald has put much thought into this, he is now suggesting that well educated 'illegal' children should be allowed to stay and build the country that they studied in and has come to love... something I said in my book, so maybe the Donald read my book. 

He did say in fact that he watches Television to get military advice...and gleans much of his information from that.
That reminded me of how much information Sarah Palin was able to glean from reading magazines and newspapers and whatever she put her hands on back then... whatever was on the coffee tables.

I am really interested in finding out if Donald would take members of our police forces off regular duties and task them to find illegals. If not the police, maybe he will task the National Guard, or the other military branches. His people are on it... I am sure.

Amnesty International Works To Decriminalize Sex Workers And Their Clients.

There was a time when drugs ran rampant in Portugal. In a daring move that was frowned upon by many, Portugal decriminalized all drugs... with certain regulated conditions.
Mic.com... 'In 2001, the Portuguese government did something that the United States would find entirely alien. After many years of waging a fierce war on drugs, it decided to flip its strategy entirely: It decriminalized them all...
If someone is found in the possession of less than a 10-day supply of anything from marijuana to heroin, he or she is sent to a three-person Commission for the Dissuasion of Drug Addiction, typically made up of a lawyer, a doctor and a social worker. The commission recommends treatment or a minor fine; otherwise, the person is sent off without any penalty. A vast majority of the time, there is no penalty.
Fourteen years after decriminalization, Portugal has not been run into the ground by a nation of drug addicts. In fact, by many measures, it's doing far better than it was before.'
There is now a need to try something outrageous again. In doing so, millions of lives around the world would be affected, and saved!
Amnesty International has been working for years trying to come to grips with the fate of millions of unfortunate women globally who are abused in one way or another as a direct result of the sex worker trade. They have seen women mistreated, raped and even killed in this trade and they are trying to initiate policies which will globally impact this assault on women. 
They will have to tiptoe through the legislatures of all countries regarding what is allowed or not. This is made even more difficult when you throw differing cultural norms into the mix... like rapists being allowed to marry their underage victims and getting off scott free!
After extensive work done in four countries involving numerous agencies, Amnesty International has now cleared a huge bar and has voted to take up the issue in a definitive way... work toward the Decriminalization of sex workers.

Amnesty International...'A crucial vote to protect the human rights of sex workers was passed today in Dublin at Amnesty International’s decision-making forum, the International Council Meeting (ICM). Delegates from around the world authorized the organization’s International Board to develop and adopt a policy on the issue.
This is a divisive, sensitive and complex issue and our priority has been and remains an approach that best protects the rights of some of the most marginalized people in the world. That is why we have been working for over two years to develop a policy to protect the human rights of sex workers based on research and global consultation with hundreds of organizations, our international membership and many more individuals worldwide.
Amnesty International now stands alongside leading human rights and health groups around the world, including the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health, the World Health Organization, the Global Commission on HIV and the LawHuman Rights Watch and Open Society Foundation. among others. Just this week, the world’s longest-running medical journal, The Lancet, endorsed the proposal.
Human rights belong to everyone inherently by virtue of being human — and that includes sex workers. Sex workers are particularly at risk of human rights violations, including physical and sexual violence, arbitrary arrest and detention, extortion and harassment, medical interventions, and exclusions from health care, housing and other social and legal benefits.'
Huffington Post...“This is a historic day for Amnesty International,” Salil Shetty, secretary general of Amnesty International, said in a news release.
He added, “Sex workers are one of the most marginalized groups in the world who in most instances face constant risk of discrimination, violence and abuse." The group believes that removing criminal law surrounding sex work will lessen the abuse and stigma faced by sex workers. 
The resolution, which passed at the human rights group's International Council Meeting in Dublin, recommends decriminalization of both buying and selling sex by adults. Tuesday’s vote does not mean that a specific policy has been adopted. Rather, the group’s International Board is now authorized to develop and finalize a policy...
Amnesty has been developing a draft policy for the past two years. From the release:
The policy has drawn from an extensive evidence base from sources including UN agencies, such as the World Health Organization, UNAIDS, UN Women and the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health. We have also conducted research in four countries.
The consultation included sex worker groups, groups representing survivors of prostitution, abolitionist organizations, feminist and other women's rights representatives, LGBTI activists, anti- trafficking agencies and HIV/AIDS organizations.
The draft policy drew widespread support from sex workers and advocacy groups worldwide, but sharp criticism from some anti-trafficking groups who fear decriminalization will increase exploitation and abuse.'

This project is purely an uphill battle as it will not be done on a 'small' scale... like decriminalizing drugs in Portugal. This is rather a global attempt and it is assured to draw the ire of the likes of those who see rape as an acceptable thing in one way or another, for example in many African and Middle Eastern nations.... even the rape of underage victims.

Update, this is an interview by the author of the article on Isis' systematic rape culture in the New York Times.... on WNYC with Brian Lehrer.
