Â Â Â Â I don’t know why Peter King thinks he has to try to win me over, to try to erase the memory of his shameful and self-serving actions following the Judge Roll and Gabrielle Giffords shooting when he joined with the Democrats in vowing to disarm and render defenseless any citizen who came within 1,000 feet of his and his good friend Chuck Schumer’s exalted presence.Â Â I don’t live in Pete’s district, nor do most of the rest of the Americans Pete thinks will be impressed by his little showcase in DC this week, the hearings on Muslim radicalization.Â Anyway, Pete’s seat is perennially safe as long as he conveniently pops over to a conservative media outlet occasionally with the good right-wing soundbite , and then returns to his career.
Actually, I think Pete is trying to shore up a legacy for himself, much like the rest of official Washington who slept-walked through the nineties and early 2,000’s.Â I could care less about who King invites to his hearings, although by all accounts the display put on by Rep. Keith Ellison, M-MN, today was a sight to behold.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJnHNu5eD44&tracker=FalseÂ I don’t care about the aggrieved Muslims and I don’t care about the “moderate” Muslims who want “reform” in the mosque and in the Islamic street and I don’t care about the sobbing parents of captured or killed Â young jihadists pointing out the danger signs.Â I really don’t even care about the King disinvite to terrorism expert Steve Emerson.Â It’s ten years on now and you can count the number of people in DC whose hearts are reallyÂ in it on one hand.
Â Â Â Â Â See, it’s really too late for all that.Â This Islamic radicalization in re America has been going on for decades, both at home and abroad, and it is imported and exported and mailed and e-mailed back and forth and diplomatically immunized and academically harboredÂ and everybody knows it.Â Everybody.Â I am sick to death of commissions and panels and task forces and working groups.Â I just want people to start doing their jobs.Â I want them to enforce the law.Â Â I wanted them to start doing their jobs when the 9/11 Commission was empaneled and who did they appoint to look into it?Â Jamie “The Wall” Gorelick.Â The woman whoÂ effectively neutered the FBI in the prelude to the War on Terror.Â the Â At that point,when Jamie took the dais,Â it didn’t matter what the nature of the problem was, the training and recruitment practices of the enemy, not to mention their passport or citizenship status,Â orÂ what sect they belonged to.Â It didn’t matter how many Arabic-speaking agents the CIA had or how manyÂ sharia-cognizant agents the FBI had. Â It allÂ ceased to matter because it was clear those who either deliberately or idiotically didn’t do their jobs were in charge of theÂ inquiries .Â And interestingly enough, the political makeup of the official US Government atÂ that time, at least the face of it,Â was assumed to be right-of-center.Â Jamie Gorelick walks around a free woman today.
Â Â Â Â Cutting to the chase, fast forward toÂ 2009 and 13 warriors lay dead at a military compound in Texas.Â These next words should be long remembered and often noted in the next generations of (hopefully) American events:
â€œOur diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think thatâ€™s worse.” – General George Casey, US. Army Chief of Staff.
Â Â Â Â General Casey is not on the witness list for the King hearings because, presumably, the hearings are not about Â ‘diversity’ but are aboutÂ ‘radicalization’.Â General Casey hasn’t been involved in a lot of actual combat in his career, but he has been in the area andÂ he has a resume a mile long and was in Iraq and he was elevated to the position of Army Chief of Staff because he said the surge wouldn’t work.Â George Casey is not ensconced at the Federal Penitentiary in Leavenworth , Kansas, but thirteen warriors are still dead.Â And this is supposedly not politics but the US defense establishment.Â And yes, the ‘victims’ were ……….disarmed by their superiors.
Â Â Â Â Oh, and by the way, Jamie Gorelick also was rewarded for her fine work during the Clinton years with cushy and lucrative assignments in the halls of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, two other wildly successful enterprises.Â Her place in history is secure.
Â Â Â Â Should Rep. Peter King and his good friend Chuck Schumer succeed in disarming ordinary Americans while in the nearby presence of their betters, or evenÂ more desireableÂ while in the same hemisphere, Rep. King may lose a few supporters in OklahomaÂ and North Dakota, but he will have the distinction of having presided over the hearings that finally got to the ‘truth’Â about why Muslim youth are so angry and upset.Â Â Sure.Â We care deeply about that.Â Â In the meantime, terrorist front organizations have standing to sue in US Courts.Â Are we getting to the bottom of this thing yet?
