Are there two versions of Islam? Is there radical Islamism which is bad and regular old Islam which is good?
For today’s brief but critical lesson, this is what is absolutely important for readers to digest and understand: the space between (1) the truth about what Islam is and what it teaches and (2) whatever else the talking heads call it – Islamism, violent extremism – is the space in which the enemy defeats us.
Remembering this is an information war more than anything else, the enemy wants to keep Americans and our leaders focused on the “other version of Islam.” You know, the “radical” version. That way we never look at Islam and sharia – the very thing all of the jihadis say is the basis for why they do what they do.
If you don’t identify the enemy, you cannot target the enemy. If you cannot target the enemy you cannot destroy the enemy and you lose the war.
And that, friends, is where we find ourselves today.
This UTT VIDEO is a quick (1+ minute) look at this from a simple perspective.
On the afternoon of 26Nov16, Ed Henry of Fox News interviewed a white male subject purported to be a former U.S. Secret Service agent knowledgeable about U.S. presidential security. Curiously, the entire conversation which took place lacked any semblance of what would normally be referred to as “news, but instead was devoted entirely to a discussion regarding the specific dimensions, both in acres and square feet, of the President elects current vacation property in Florida, and the secured area surrounding Trump Towers in Manhattan, plus the security complications involving said buildings themselves with respect to businesses both within and nearby. Inasmuch as Osama bin Laden is reputed to have been a structural engineer who factored technical considerations with respect to both construction and building-material designs into destructive probabilities on 9/11, Fox News has, or should have, some contextual explaining to do. I.e., the area involved. and the amount and kind of explosives needed to do optimum damage are, presumably, a crucial element of terrorist planning, thus should not have been a topic of conversation on Fox air.
The political statement made from a Broadway stage to Vice-President elect Mike Pence, in November, though seemingly delivered impromptu by an actor named Brandon V Dixon DOB: 23Sep81-POB: Gaithersburg, MD, was actually written by Lin-Manuel Miranda DOB: 16Jan80-POB: NYNY who created the show, Jeffrey Seller, its producer, and “the cast”. Furthermore, on the day after a meeting Miranda had in the White House with President Obama, in March 2010, he joined New York Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and other Democratic lawmakers, in Washington to back a Senate bill that would allow Puerto Rico to declare bankruptcy thus significantly ease its $70 billion debt burden.
Interestingly, Miranda is related to Rene Perez Joglar aka “Residente”, a Puerto Rican rapper who serves as the face of Amnesty International and whose father, Renaldo Perez Ramirez is a lawyer who in 1978 as a member of the PSP (Puerto Rican Socialist Party) traveled to Cuba as the representative of Puerto Rican youth; and during the 80s traveled to Nicaragua as a symbol of Puerto Rican solidarity with the revolution there.
What’s more, in 2005 “Residente” wrote and recorded the song “Querido FBI” (Dear FBI) in connection with its “assassination” of Filberto Ojeda Rios, leader of “Machetero”, a terrorist group seeking Puerto Rican Independence from the United States.
On 01Nov50, a 2nd assassination attempt on the life of President Harry S Truman’s was attempted at the Blair House, diagonally across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House which at the time was being restored. The two Puerto Rican pro-independence aspiring assassins – Oscar Collazo and Griselio Torresola – were prevented from entering Blair house, though White House Policeman Leslie Coffelt was mortally wounded by Torresola who he then killed with return fire, and Collazo was wounded by a Secret Service agent, and survived.
The incident at the theatre in New York involving Vice-President elect Mike Pence requires much more than an “apology” (which per se is contextually meaningless); it should be regarded as a possible assassination-dry-run by at least one individual who has amiable & familial ties to a man who clearly bears watching. Too, though its never been a part of the historical narrative, theatres are usually relatively dark places where the attention of everyone there is focused in an identical direction, I.e. at the activity taking place on a stage. Perhaps John Wilkes Booth – a superlative stage actor – thought about when he chose Ford’s theatre.as the venue in which to kill President Lincoln.
Get Ready To Win.
It’s gonna be a paradigm shift.
Don’t get sentimental about not losing anymore.
Good work and keep the faith for 60 days.
