Islamic Terrorism, and Snakes on a Plane

“Enough is ENOUGH!  I have had it with these motherfucking [Islamic terrorism] snakes on this motherfucking plane!  Everybody strap in.  I’m about to open some fucking windows.”

Neville Flynn, Snakes on a Plane

“The Islamic State Group claimed responsibility for the attack via their Amaq News Agency.  Catalan Police have confirmed the incident is a terror attack.” – Source
 
Many people worldwide think it’s long past time time to implement a new 1,000 to 1 policy for Islamic terrorism. If Islamic terrorism kills 12 innocent civilians, the People of this World will summarily execute 12,000 people associated with Islamic terrorism, beginning with that terrorist’s immediate and extended family, spreading throughout the Islamic terrorism cell, to any and all known and related Islamic terrorism cells within that Islamic terrorism organization. If the 12,000 number has not yet been reached, move on, beginning with known terrorist cells of the same religion, and so on.
 
You might want to start at Gitmo, or did Obama release ALL of those Islamic terrorism prisoners back into their fight against the U.S.?
 
Seriously. After dealing with this Islamic terrorism crap for 1,400 years, it has become abundantly clear the only way to eradicate Islamic terrorism from the human gene pool is to kill them all, then burn their books, papers, mosques, homes, villages, and even entire cities to the ground, into rubble.
 
Just to be “fair,” though, we ought to give them “fair warning:” At the very next attack even remotely attributable to Islamic terrorism, we WILL nuke ONE city randomly chosen from all cities throughout the entire world containing two-thirds or more Muslims and containing a population within the top one-third of all such cities. At the SECOND terrorist attack even remotely attributable to Islamic terrorism, we WILL nuke FORTY such cities, including Mecca. At the THIRD terrorist attack even remotely attributable to Islamic terrorism, we WILL nuke ALL cities throughout the world containing more than two-thirds Muslims, starting with the most populated and continuing down the list until an official Islamic delegation promises the world that there will NEVER be another Islamic terrorist attack anywhere in the world EVER again, or until the list is complete.  Should the promise be broken with another attack even remotely attributable to Islamic terrorism, we WILL continue down that list.
 
I think our world would be MUCH better off with a little more radiation than continuing to suffer incessant attacks and threats of attacks at the hands of Islamic terrorism.
 
While this sounds drastic, evidently God himself thought precisely the same thing when he commanded the jews to kill everyone in certain tribes:
 
“In 1 Samuel 15:2-3, God commanded Saul and the Israelites, “This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’ ” “
 
God ordered similar things when the Israelites were invading the promised land (Deuteronomy 2:34; 3:6; 20:16-18).
 
Why would God have the Israelites exterminate an entire group of people, women and children included?
 
Unlike us, God knows the future. God knew what the results would be if Israel did not completely eradicate the Amalekites. If Israel did not carry out God’s orders, the Amalekites would come back to trouble the Israelites in the future.
 
Saul claimed to have killed everyone but the Amalekite king Agag (1 Samuel 15:20). Obviously, Saul was lying—just a couple of decades later, there were enough Amalekites to take David and his men’s families captive (1 Samuel 30:1-2). After David and his men attacked the Amalekites and rescued their families, 400 Amalekites escaped.
 
If Saul had fulfilled what God had commanded him, this never would have occurred.
 
Several hundred years later, a descendant of Agag, Haman, tried to have the entire Jewish people exterminated (see the book of Esther). So, Saul’s incomplete obedience almost resulted in Israel’s destruction. God knew this would occur, so He ordered the extermination of the Amalekites ahead of time.
 
By the way, “Haman’s lineage is given in the Targum Sheni as follows: “Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, son of Srach, son of Buza, son of Iphlotas, son of Dyosef, son of Dyosim, son of Prome, son of Ma’dei, son of Bla’akan, son of Intimros, son of Haridom, son of Sh’gar, son of Nigar, son of Farmashta, son of Vayezatha, (son of Agag, son of Sumkei,) son of Amalek, son of the concubine of Eliphaz, firstborn son of Esau”.

When You’re Attacked…

I cannot identify this particular incident without giving away certain privacy act information.
Here’s what I can say about it:  Whilst I and the rest of my high school youth group were singing songs unto the Lord, a PCP-hopped (VA police revealed evidence) slammed open doors, literally flipped tables from floor level to some 12 foot height and more than 17 feet beyond (I measured it).
Prior to that point, we were all kind of, “Wha…”
We watched as he entered our circle, shouting all sorts of crap against “you people playing your Christian songs,”that he’d had enough, etc.

He had already entered the large worship room, and all of us were on the defensive. We railed against him forcibly entering the room.  Some of us wrestled him to the ground.  Some of us secured the group to hidden corners.  Some of us interacted with 911 services.

ALL of us dealt with this, and while interesting, it was NOT FUN.  So, let’s LEARN from it so that the likelihood of this ever happening again is SO less likely that

Grace People:   Please send your recollections to me.  Thanks.

I will soon publish a conglomerate in a mini-book form, and will make it available to all, provided all parties agree do it, including the perp himself, under Virginia state law.

Otherwise, it will remain a mostly secret based on obscure references.

Here’s a thought, Grace people, let’s stop this crap in the bud.  I was there, helped wrestled this offender to the ground, called 911 repeatedly to elicit help, helped move most people to our churches hidden chambers…

Why haven’t I had a say in this guy’s court hearings?

I was there.  I saw and experienced everything.

Forrest:  (enters the room)…  Pick it up from there..

I’m writing a book, so if you have input, I want to hear from you.

 
Somewhere in Northern Virginia, there was a Christian Youth Fellowship organization…

America’s Greatest Terrorism Threats

According to a Princeton Study using FBI data and reported by GlobalResearch, Islam is not our greatest terrorism threat. Rather, the left-wing extremists surpass that threat by a factor of FOUR.
American Terrorism
 
Meanwhile, right-wing extremists don’t even appear on the chart. People like certain actors who say, “I’m fearful of people with guns!” need to keep that in mind, especially while living in Latino-dense Southern California.  Their terrorist threat level is nearly double that of left-wing extremists, and SEVEN TIMES higher than Islamic extremists.
left-wing terrorism
 The “terrorist threat” from right-wing extremists has to be less than that of the lowest group listed on the chart: Communists. Call it 4%, although it’s probably lower than that.  Even at 4%, however, it’s still SIX TIMES lower than that of left-wing extremists, and more than TEN TIMES lower than that of Latinos.
 
Please present these findings to the next blitheringly idiotic left-wing “journalist” who claims that “right-wingers are our biggest threat.”
 
Our only threat to the left is on intellectual and factual bases.
 
Hey, don’t shoot the messenger. I didn’t gather the data. The FBI did. Nor did I conduct the study. Princeton University did.  Have a nice day.

Getting in Shape

I’ve been getting back into cycling. Last week, I finally repaired my flat, bought new tires and tubes, and trued my wheels. Last night I gave my trusty steed a decent, long-overdue, and much-needed cleaning. 🙂
 
In the last week, I’ve done a very short but moderately steep 1-mile trip, along with a longer 2-mile trip.
 
I’m feeling better after each trip!
 
I’m planning on a 13.4 miler tomorrow morning. That may be a bit aggressive for where I am right now, as I’m still running into the breathing side of cardio as my limfac (limiting factor).
 
As the human body regains fitness, it usually encounters shortness of breath as the first sign of a serious lack of fitness. I’ve been there, done that, and overcame it. Unfortunately, I’m back there again. 🙁
 
By limiting dietary intake to healthy foods (lots of water, zero processed foods, zero sugar, balanced carbs and proteins, and healthy fats), while exercising at one’s limerfac (see Note 1, below), one can get move from the shortness of breath limerfac to the cardio or lactic acid limerfac between about one and three weeks.
 
During the shortness of breath, one is seriously out of shape. You climb a long slope of stairs or even a gentle hill and find yourself out of breath. You should by all means consult your doctor if you find yourself at this stage, especially if you’re NOT obese or even carrying around more than a few extra pounds, as it could indicate a serious underlying health condition that no amount of exercise will cure.
 
If medically cleared, as you progress in your twice-daily (see Note 2, below) cardio routine, 4-5 times per week (see Note 3, below), you will quickly find yourself recovering your ability to breath while exercising. Between one and three weeks on this regimen, you will no longer be out of breath, but will begin running up against either heart rate or lactic acid buildup as your limerfacs. If you’ve been out of shape for a while, and you’re performing both a good, five to ten-minute warming and slow but steadily progressively more intense you’ll usually hit a heart rate maximum before you encounter a lactic acid maximum during this phase. If you’ve been out of shape for a short time, you might find yourself hitting a lactic acid ceiling, instead.
 
Either way, the good news is that you’re “over the hump.” You’re now in shape to… get in shape. I know this sounds backwards, but, quite literally, when you’re out of shape, you’re in a slow but steady downward spiral. No amount of medication, rest, diet, nutrition, or whatever is going to get you over that hump.
 

Speaking of which, strength training doesn’t involve a “hump.” Progressive training with weights might feel like there’s a “hump” involved, but it’s often due to the fact that weightlifters are on a tight enough schedule so as to experience “aerobic weight lifting,” wherein they progress between stations at a rate fast enough to stimulate their aerobic conditioning response.

ACR.  That’s MY term, not anyone else’s.  Yes, I’ve read the books.  No, I’m not an “exercise physiologist.”  I am well aware, however, that many of the studies leading into the modern acceptance of what’s “fit” involved test subjects who were well below today’s 50th percentile in terms of BMI.  In fact, the early studies weren’t out to test obesity, much less various fitness levels thereof.  Instead, they were out to test minimum, normal (statistically speaking) and maximum levels of performance for a particular height and weight range involving what had previously been determined as being acceptable for test pilots.

Here’s the truth:  Back as early as the 1930s, we began minimizing human weights in the testing and calculations in order to achieve the best results.  I’m not going to bore you with the immediately verifiable results of 90 years of research, experimentation, and results, but the fact remains:  Small females can withstand more G’s while remaining capable over longer periods of time of tracking more targets and eliminating the same than even the most prolific “HOO-RAH!” male.

We’re not talking about hand-to-hand-combat, here.  We’re talking about tapping into our own genetic structure which evolution has selected what works best to preserve the outcome, and why.

In the case of female pilots, well, they really rock shit.  Better multitasking (but only somewhat), Greater G-force resistance (but only somewhat).

If some God appointed me the general extraordinaire, with an edict that all freedom-hating groups be extinguished as soon as possible…

Well… Damned.  That’s tough.

However, here’s what I’d do:

Send all aviators to combat the threat (regardless of gender – they signed up and trained, etc. – this issue was buried in the 1990s, or so I thought).

 
one will progress through shortness of breath as the limiting exertion factor, then max heart rate, and finally, lactic acid. With dedication, riding hard for half an hour at least every other day while, it only takes a week or two for you to transition between shortness of breath to heart rate as your limiting exertion factor.
 
We’ll see how I feel at the 5 mile point. That’s up a steep hill, down a mild hill, and up another mild hill. Easy ride home from there.
 
If I feel fine, plenty of energy and wind, I’ll continue for a loop around Garden of the Gods. Once I begin that, however, I’m committed, as I’ll have to add down a steep hill, up a very steep hill, down a steep hill, and up a steep hill, along with 8.4 miles to my distance.

Did Linkin Park have a change in heart, if not faith?

I find both Linkin Park’s music and lyrics to be substantially changed in this song as compared to their previous ones.
I’ve asked several friends from college involved in the Christian music scene what they think.  I’ll report back here, discretely, with what they find.  Meanwhile, the lyrics of a lot of breakthrough Christian bands have been brought to mind.

Liberals and Democrats – What’s REALLY Wrong with Libtards and Demoncraps?

Ok, what’s REALLY wrong with Libtards and Demoncraps? (Liberals and Democrats)
 
Idealism. These two categories of people, largely overlapping, have replaced any sense of reality for what they would like reality to be. Raised on Hollywood, they think that if they just believe hard enough, it’ll come to pass, and when it doesn’t, we find them rioting in the streets.
 
REAL MEN defend God, Country, Community, Family, and Selves, in that order (or reordered, as immediately necessary), against any and all threats to this hierarchy we know as government, and specifically in the case of the United States of America, our Republic (says so in both the U.S. Constitution as well as in all 50 State Constitutions).
 
To that end, God allowed REAL MANKIND (this includes women) to develop the tools we need to defend ourselves, including all manner of “arms” as provided for in our Second Amendment (knives, firearms, swords, spears, etc.), and as written by REAL MEN.
 
We the People call these REAL MEN our Founding Fathers.
 
Libtards and Demoncraps are the result of overly exuberant mental conditioning, what happens when a potential libtard’s idealistic tendencies are stretched so far that their psyche snaps it’s last hold on reality.5

North Korea’s ICBM Test and Threat

On July 4, 2017, North Korea tested a missile which it claims to be its first intercontinental missile.  North Korea claimed, and Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary confirmed, the missile dubbed the Hwasong-14 ICBM flew for 40 minutes up to an altitude of 1,500 miles, well above the orbital altitude of the International Space Station.  A more depressed trajectory, this mid-range missile could reach Alaska.  They followed their test with threats of widespread destruction against the United States.   Shinzo Abe, the Prime Minister of Japan, declares that North Korea continues to “ignore the repeated warning from the international community.”

On July 5, 2017, Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, delivered the following speech to the United Nations:

Thank you, Mr. President.

To my friends on the Security Council, I must say that today is a dark day. It is a dark day because yesterday’s action by North Korea made the world a more dangerous place. Their illegal missile launch was not only dangerous, but reckless and irresponsible. It showed that North Korea does not want to be part of a peaceful world. They have cast a dark shadow of conflict on all nations that strive for peace.

Yesterday’s act came from the same vicious dictator who sent a young college student back home to his parents unresponsive and in a coma. For Americans, the true nature of the North Korean regime was painfully brought home with the images of two guards holding Otto Warmbier up as they transported him from a prison he should never have been in.

Otto Warmbier is but one person out of millions who have been killed, tortured or deprived of their human rights by the North Korean regime. To Americans, the death of one innocent person can be as powerful as the death of millions because all men and women are created in God’s image. Depravity toward one is a sure sign of willingness to do much more harm.

The nature of the North Korean regime is clear. Only the scale of the damage it does could become different. That’s why yesterday’s escalation is so alarming. If North Korea will treat an innocent young student the way it treated Otto Warmbier, we should not be surprised if it acts barbarically on a larger scale.

The United States does not seek conflict. In fact, we seek to avoid it. We seek only the peaceful denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and an end to the threatening actions by North Korea. Regrettably, we’re witnessing just the opposite. Make no mistake, North Korea’s launch of an ICBM is a clear and sharp military escalation.

The North Korean regime openly states that its missiles are intended to deliver nuclear weapons to strike cities in the United States, South Korea and Japan. And now it has greater capacity to do so.

In truth, it is not only the United States and our allies that are threatened. North Korea’s destabilizing escalation is a threat to all nations in the region and beyond. Their actions are quickly closing off the possibility of a diplomatic solution.

The United States is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies. One of our capabilities lies with our considerable military forces. We will use them if we must, but we prefer not to have to go in that direction. We have other methods of addressing those who threaten us and of addressing those who supply the threat.

We have great capabilities in the area of trade. President Trump has spoken repeatedly about this. I spoke with him at length about it this morning. There are countries that are allowing, even encouraging, trade with North Korea in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions. Such countries would also like to continue their trade — such countries would also like to continue their trade arrangements with the United States. That’s not going to happen.

Our attitude on trade changes when countries do not take international security threats seriously. Before the path to a peaceful solution is entirely closed, however, there remains more that the international community can and must do diplomatically and economically. In the coming days, we will bring before the Security Council a resolution that raises the international response in a way that is proportionate to North Korea’s new escalation.

I will not detail the resolution here today, but the options are all known to us. If we are unified, the international community can cut off the major sources of hard currency to the North Korean regime. We can restrict the flow of oil to their military and their weapons program. We can increase air and maritime restrictions. We can hole senior regime officials accountable.

The international community has spoken frequently against the illegal and dangerous actions of the North Korean regime. For many years, there have been numerous U.N. sanctions against North Korea, but they have been insufficient to get them to change their destructive course.

So in order to have an impact, in order to move North Korea off its military escalation, we must do more. We will not look exclusively at North Korea. We will look at any country that chooses to do business with this outlaw regime. We will not have patience for stalling or talking our way down to a watered-down resolution.

Yesterday’s ICBM escalation requires an escalated diplomatic and economic response. Time is short. Action is required. The world is on notice. If we act together, we can still prevent a catastrophe and we can rid the world of a grave threat. If we fail to act in a serious way, there will be a different response.

Much of the burden of enforcing U.N. sanctions rests with China; 90 percent of trade with North Korea is from China. We will work with China. We will work with any and every country that believes in peace.

But we will not, repeat, the inadequate approaches of the past that have brought us to this dark day.

We cannot forget the multiple missile tests this year, or yesterday’s escalation.

We cannot forgot Otto Warmbier and others North Korea continues to hold. We cannot forget the threats to our friends and allies around the world.

We will not forget, and we will not delay.

Thank you.

Let’s examine North Korea’s position:

“President Donald Trump has staunchly opposed North Korea’s pursuit of ICBMs, as well as its desire to develop the technology to fit them with nuclear warheads, which Pyongyang views as essential to its survival in case of foreign invasion.” – Time, July 5, 2017
Given President Trump’s 50-year history of action, it is extremely unwise to attempt to call his bluff, as he simply has none.  He researches what he can and cannot do, then does what he must in order to accomplish his goals.
 
For Pyongyang to view nuclear weapons “as essential to its survival in case of foreign invasion” is about as blitheringly idiotic as could be, especially since 95% of all countries around the world have no nuclear weapons.  Not one of those 187 countries without nuclear weapons is invading them, so why would any one of the 8 countries with nuclear weapons want to invade North Korea?  We’ve had nukes for seventy-two years.  Most of the other 7 countries have had their nukes for at least fifty years.  If any of us had any interest in invading North Korea or using nuclear weapons against North Korea in a preemptive strike, we’d have done so long ago.  What we’ve been hoping for over the last 64 years is that North Korea would come to its senses and do what nearly all other countries have done:  Establish normal diplomatic relations and engage in free trade with others.
The U.S. (nor any other country) has absolutely no interest whatsoever in invading North Korea, unless North Korea develops and threatens to use nuclear weapons against others.  Thus, North Korea’s fearful reaction, their aggressive actions, and their threats are not only not in their best interests, they’re in their absolutely worst interests.  They’re completely irrational.  It’s downright blatantly stupid given the direct consequences which will — must — follow North Korea’s threats of using nuclear weapons against others.
 
Some FACTS about nuclear weapons:
 
1. Out of 196 countries around the world, only 9 (4.6%) of them have nuclear weapons. The other 187 countries (95.4%) around the world have no nuclear weapons.
 
2. Russia has 47.9% of all nuclear weapons. The U.S. has 44.5% of all nuclear weapons. Third on that list, France as 2.1%, followed by China at less than 2%.  North Korea might have as many as 8 nuclear weapons (0.05%), but the actual number is probably less than that due to their underground testing.  Here’s the full list
 nuclear weapons
3. When it comes to official world policy on North Korea, 98.15% of all nuclear weapons in the world can be pointed at and used against the country, should that need arise.
Bottom line, given the military might and nuclear capability of the U.S., Russia, France, China, the U.K., Pakistan, India, and Israel — ALL of whom are members of the United Nations, North Korea will NEVER succeed in using force, especially nuclear force, against any other country, as ALL other countries would wipe them off the face of God’s good, green Earth.  North Korea is about a second away from self-annihilation.  They had better find someone who isn’t bent on self-destruction to right their ship and lead their nation out of the minefield into which they’ve drifted.
