Democrats as faux hawks

This article presents this year’s vulnerable Democrats as hawkish: Democrat Kay Hagan didn’t mince words about the Iraq War during her 2008 Senate campaign against Republican Elizabeth Dole. “We need to get out of Iraq in a responsible way,” Hagan declared in May of that year. “We need to elect leaders who don’t invade countries […]

Texas Is Booming…but CNN Doesn’t Want You to Know Why

Much of my writing is focused on the real-world impact of government policy, and this is why I repeatedly look at the relative economic performance of big government jurisdictions and small government jurisdictions. But I don’t just highlight differences between nations. Yes, it’s educational to look at North Korea vs. South Korea or Chile vs. […]

Post-Oklahoma Attack: Personal And Family Security Tips

By Michael Haltman

 

The unimaginable attack at an Oklahoma plant last week was a stark and unfortunate reminder that the need for vigilance and situational awareness has grown more acute!
And while this topic is an uncomfortable one that some may prefer to ignore, it’s critical to at the very least follow some basic and fundamental rules for personal and family safety.
The tips that are provided below are by no means all-encompassing but they lay some excellent groundwork.
Fundamentals of Individual Protection include:
General Awareness Tips.

  • Maintain situational awareness of your surroundings at all times. Pay particular attention to activity happening around you in order to identify anything unusual. If necessary, leave the area and report suspicious activity or behavior to local authorities.
  • Protect your personal information at all times. Do not reveal details of your personal life (such as where you live, work, family members, your association with the U.S. military, email address or phone numbers) to anyone you don’t know and trust.
  • Do not discuss personal information in public, on the telephone or on the internet. Take extra precaution with social media networks (such as Facebook, Twitter, and blogs) — avoid posting or providing personal information. Criminals and terrorists are known to use these forums for open source information gathering and for recruitment and these media do not provide “secure” communications.

Individual Awareness at Home:

  • Basic security begins with the home. Make sure your door and window locks and exterior lighting function properly. Children should keep doors and windows locked when home alone.
  • Participate in a neighborhood watch program to establish a shared responsibility for the safety and security of your local community.
  • Be prepared for an emergency that may require your family to “shelter-in-place” or relocate on short notice. Make a family emergency plan and ensure all family members understand what to do in each of these scenarios.

Individual Awareness at Work:

  • Know the emergency evacuation procedures for the place where you work.
  • Know the bomb threat procedures and how to report threats to local law enforcement or security authorities.
  • Understand what to do in an “active shooter” threat scenario.

Individual Awareness while Traveling:

  • Maintain a “low profile.” Try to blend in with the local populace through how you dress and your appearance — especially when traveling abroad. Know the locations of safe havens and carry with you the emergency telephone numbers.
  • Understand the culture where you are traveling and learn basic survival phrases (such as “I need a police officer” and “I need a doctor”).
  • Avoid civil disturbances or demonstrations of any kind – these events can turn violent with little to no advanced warning.
  • Public venues with large crowds present lucrative terrorist targets. Understand the risks of attending public venues based on the history of terrorist attacks in your area and security provided at the event.
  • Never travel alone; always travel in groups of two or more. Think ahead and choose safe travel modes and routes.

The Watcher’s Council Weasel of The Week Nominations!!!

 https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/89/256833910_dc5e794df2.jpg

Hello and welcome to the Watcher’s Council’s  ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations,  where we award the golden plastic Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be publicly slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations and check back Thursday to see which Weasel gets the votes and walks off with the statuette of shame!

 
Here are this weeks’ nominees:

 President Barack Hussein Obama!!

The Noisy Room:  Barack Obama for his ‘Latte Salute’ of his Marine guard this past week. It was one of the most disgraceful, disrespectful things I have ever seen. The salute reveals Obama’s true feelings towards the military and his contempt and utter disrespect for our warriors. How very un-presidential… how very un-Commander-in-Chief.

While it is protocol for U.S. service members in uniform to salute the Commander-in-Chief, it’s not required for a civilian president to salute back, military experts say. Ronald Reagan is thought to have set precedent for the practice back in 1981, so this is also a slap at Reagan. The salute is not required, but expected by Americans and the military. Since Obama is also left handed, some looked at this gesture as calculated. He did it with his right hand. By the way, Obama is a tea drinker normally, not a coffee drinker.

The Independent Sentinel: I have to name Barack Obama again. He blamed the intelligence community for his refusal to act on the ISIS threat during a 60 Minutes interview Sunday.

“Well, I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” Obama told Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes.
Everyone in the world who is paying attention knows he’s lying.

Radovan Karadzic, Former President Of The Bosnian Serb Republic!!

The Glittering Eye:Although I was tempted to nominate George Clooney, I finally settled on the supervillain who was back in the news this week: Radovan Karadzic. As president of the Bosnian Serb Republic he was a driving force behind the murders of thousands of Bosnian men and boys and deserves the lengthy imprisonment that very few really doubt he will receive.

  Suhaib Webb former imam of of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, and currently imam of the Islamic Society of Boston!!

 Virginia Right!: For best taquiyyah performance as a ‘peaceful Muslim.’ Imam Webb’s most recent newsmaker was to publicly apologize to ISIS and al-Qaeda for criticizing them.

MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry!!

 Nice Deb:For refusing to see the OBVIOUS link to radical Islam in the Oklahoma beheading.

She repeated the administration spin that it was “workplace violence” and condemned any references to his Islamic faith when discussing the crime with her equally clueless guests.

A week after an ISIS beheading plot was disrupted in Australia – the very week an ISIS commander called for lone wolf attacks in America – specifically for beheadings, a Muslim jailhouse convert who has jihadist pictures on his Facebook page, beheads a co-worker while reportedly shouting Muslim phrases – and this dim bulb can’t see the connection? She can’t connect the dots? Or she feels compelled to push a politically correct counter-narrative because she feels the American people can’t be trusted with the truth?

Whatever the case – it’s pathetic – and weaselly.

  Well, there it is! Are these worthy weasels or what? Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum.

And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it...or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.

And don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter..’cause we’re cool like that, y’know?

Dayton’s accountability problem

Two weeks ago, I published this post that highlighted this video, which focused on education: Here’s the transcript of that video: I think a lot of Minnesotans don’t know what Jeff Johnson stands for. It seems like schools are not Jeff Johnson’s priority. Jeff Johnson cut early childhood spending. That really bothers me. Any cuts […]
