While Dems bashed GOP, feds gave Detroit a bailout and electric grid attacked in Arkansas

This week’s news cycle featured a lot of heated rhetoric on both sides of the political aisle, with Democrats bashing the GOP and calling Republicans arsonists, kidnappers and other nasty names.

As the battle, largely over the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), continued, other news surfaced that received little attention, including a bailout for Detroit and an attack on an electric grid.

Domestic Terrorism


In memory: September 11, 2001; September 11, 2012

A hissing from the cat as mockingbirds
disturb his morning nap. He chose a spot
by boxwood hedges where fledglings chirp.
So far he disregards the easy shot.
The young have come within close range. He’s half
shut his eyes on purpose, acting as though
lawn fowl for lunch would be a social gaffe.
A bowl of tuna waits on the portico.

The fledglings’ mom and dad step up their counter.
With fury they attack the hunter’s head,
hoping to defeat a natural killer
who steadily hugs his ground. He pegs the dead
before they perish. Let them peck and nag.
He bides his time. These boys are in the bag.

U.S. Code makes a liar of government on trial of Nidal Hasan

Photo of Hasan: U.S. GovernmentNidal Hasan apparently wants to die, if you believe his defense attorneys. Although any American capable of clear reasoning knows Hasan is a domestic terrorist, the death and misery he spread at Ft. Hood in 2009 is officially classified as “workplace violence.”

The US code on terrorism posted at the House of Representatives website as of 1/3/2012 defines domestic terrorism, and the definition makes a liar of our government:

West Point report on ‘Far Right’ expands official targeting of opposition

This report on the "Far-Right" is the latest propaganda to emerge from an academic allied with the Leftist movement. (Screen snip from U.S. Government website)A new report from a professor at West Point titled “Understanding America’s Violent Far Right” is another ladder in the expansion of targeting opposition to proponents of big government.

The report by Arie Perliger,  Director of Terrorism Studies at the Combating Terrorism Center, ignores the characteristics many criminals exhibit—mental instability.

Anti-abortionists and self-identified Christian movements are lumped in with Neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

Sikh temple shootings: Act of terrorism or terrorizing act? 

This Facebook page belongs to user helioaeromodelos who is listed as Wade Michael Page. This user joined FB on Saturday, before the shootings at the Sikh temple in Wisconsin. There is no way for TUSR to verify whether the listing actually belongs to Page whose hometown is listed as Aurora, Colorado where the shootings occurred at a movie theater showing the film ‘Batman.’ If it does belong to Page, now deceased, it appears he was inspired by the shooter in Aurora.(Screen snip, Facebook)
The shootings that left six people dead inside a Sikh temple in the Milwaukee area on Sunday have raised questions about how acts of violence are classified by government agencies. TUSR contributor Kerry Patton explains the ways agencies treat such crimes.

By Kerry Patton

Terrorism does not have a universally accepted definition. Depending on the country and government agency, the definition of terrorism varies. Inside the United States, three key definitions are accepted within the federal government. The Departments of Justice, Defense, and State have their own definitions.

Rightwing extremism report spurs no apology from Obama or administration

Updated on Friday, April 17, 2009 at 10:11AM by Registered CommenterKay B. Day, Editor

Ed. note: DHS has removed the reports from the Web. (4/17/13)

The Dept. of Homeland Security report on rightwing extremism, despite an outpouring of criticism from the public, has elicited no apology from President Barack Obama or members of his administration. ‘Big Sis’, aka DHS secretary Janet Napolitano, did say if she could rewrite the report, she’d rewrite this footnote: “Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

Couple of real winners: Churchill and Ayers proselytize for media

By Kay B. Day

These are a couple of Bill Ayers' Weather Underground cronies. Courtesy of the FBI.(Denver, Colo.)—A couple of real academic winners, Ward Churchill and Bill Ayers, showed up together in Denver to lecture at the University of Colorado. They allegedly talked about the importance of academic freedom. I say allegedly because I didn’t attend. Listening to these two old socialists (or whatever you might call them) would be like volunteering for a root canal.

The Denver Post said Ayers told attendees, "As a teacher, your responsibility is to challenge dogma and orthodoxy, not to just accept it."
