Celebrating 9/11 at the FBI

The following story is so appalling, it's nearly impossible to believe, but it comes from Paul Sperry, whose journalistic credentials are impeccable, and who could have a lot to lose if it turned out to be false.

-------
"When linguist Sibel Dinez Edmonds showed up for her first day of work at the FBI, a week after the 9-11 attacks, she expected to find a somber atmosphere. Instead, she was offered cookies filled with dates from party bowls set out in the room where other Middle Eastern linguists with top-secret security clearance translate terror-related communications."

"...To her shock, she was told the Arab linguists were celebrating the terrorist attacks on America, as if they were some joyous event."

Sibel Edmonds was fired after voicing her concerns about incompetence and corruption at the FBI.

"Can the state destroy your life by an administrative ruling, without a jury trial, declaring that your Eighth Amendment rights have been waived against your will?"

"Is it even possible to waive Eighth Amendment rights? Under what imaginable circumstances could the state assume constitutional authority to do that which they are specifically forbidden to do?"

"These are not rhetorical questions. This is not a theoretical scenario. This is happening right now, and the target of state revenge is a leader in the fight to reclaim our unalienable right to keep and bear arms." ...

"An article authored by the ABC News Political Unit appears to give credence to routine conservative allegations of journalistic bias."

"A recent edition of 'The Note,' authored by ABC's Political Unit, read 'The worldview of the dominant media can be seen in every frame of video and every print word choice that is currently being produced about the presidential race.' "

"It continued, 'Like every other institution, the Washington and political press corps operate with a good number of biases and predilections. They include, but are not limited to, a near-universal shared sense that liberal political positions on social issues like gun control, homosexuality, abortion, and religion are the default...' "

"While the Bush II Administration's 'War on Terror' and its Orwellian progeny – Patriot Acts I & II – demand that Americans relinquish their civil liberties guaranteed in the Bill of Rights and Constitution in exchange for Homeland Security, we must never forget that this country has survived a Revolutionary War, a Civil War, two World Wars, a Cold War, and half a century of CIA malfeasance, without devolving into a totalitarian state."

"America's greatest presidents were keenly aware of the fragility of liberty and freedom of expression, and worked steadfastly toward their protection."

"If you decide to become a steadfast defender of constitutional law, I will enthusiastically support you all the way. Tragically for us all, such a transformation of character and willing reevaluation of your ill-conceived policies appear less likely by the day. Despite the euphoria of the national audience, your amplified words of 'protecting our freedoms, defending the Bill of Rights, equal justice, rule of law, personal responsibility, limited government, securing our borders, and necessary security measures,' typify political trumpery at best. At worst, they are the reassurances of an Iscariot."
 

Some advice from George Washington

"Washington realized that as our country grew, there would be 'bad guys' who would try to seize powers they shouldn't have and change the wonderful plan for American freedom and independence set up by the Founding Fathers. On the other hand, he knew that some changes in the Constitution would be necessary from time to time. Washington advised us that these changes should be made only in the way the Constitution provides - and not in any other way."

"Washington, though clearly sympathetic to the Federalists, was careful to balance the Hamiltonian desire for a strong central government against the Jeffersonian suspicion of centralized power. As one of the framers of the Constitution, Washington examined every bill that crossed his desk in light of the powers delegated to the federal government in that document. He vetoed two bills because he believed they did not pass constitutional muster. It is hard to imagine either Lincoln or Bush stopping for even a moment to consider whether a bill he was about to sign met the exacting standards of the Constitution. ..."

"We now live in a nation where the words of, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, are usurped by the Patriot Act. You see, you are a victim of this very thing. The ugly cop who insisted on pressing the issue that convicted you was one of those who needed to beat his chest for having "found" a real threat to the community. The prosecutor and judge had to get on the band-wagon and get their kudos, too. The public defender had to give in to them and just do the best he could in matters of time you would spend behind bars and the saddle you would take with you."

"In this college town, residents are prohibited by ordinance from carrying a concealed gun. It's a law that might not go over as well in a western Kansas community like Goodland."

"And that's why the issue of concealed guns should be decided locally, and not by a blanket law for the entire state approved in Topeka, according to the League of Kansas Municipalities."

" 'One size does not fit all in this circumstance,' said Kim Gulley, a spokeswoman for the league. 'Kansas City, Kan., and Lawrence are not the same as western Kansas. They have different values and different concerns.' "

Right. Which is why individuals should have the choice to carry or not.

"A Louisville museum scheduled to open in May has acquired a rifle believed to have belonged to George Washington."

" 'It is believed that over his life Washington owned some 35 or more firearms, largely pistols and sporting long guns,' said Walter J. Karcheski, chief curator of arms and armor for the Frazier Historical Arms Museum. 'Only three are known, one of which is believed to be that in the Frazier Museum.' "

"The rifle at one time was on loan for display in Independence Hall in Philadelphia."

" 'Although our research is ongoing, an inscription on the buttplate and a growing body of supporting data suggests that this rifle was a gift to President Washington, perhaps presented to him at Mount Vernon in 1791,' Karcheski said."

"Hey, it sounds reasonable doesn’t it? Well, I guess it would until you look at the details.

"Right off the top, they ban the Avtomat Kalashnikov models made by Poly Technologies, Norinco, and Mitchell. This may sound reasonable unless you understand that the gun spelled out here has never been made by any of the companies listed. They did make a rifle which looked the same but did not have a number of the key military functions (full automatic fire, burst fire, etc) of the Soviet weapon named. But this part of the text in this ban can not be stretched to cover the rifles they made."

"Basically this ban’s effect would be like a 'Sports Car Ban' which bans the Ford Camaro." ...

"The TSA, Snyder continues, 'has been dragging its feet for so hard and so long in implementing a national mandate for the arming of airline pilots that one cannot help but think that the interests of the nation would be better served if this responsibility is taken out of the hands of the agency.'

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A NEW draft Firearms Order for Northern Ireland has received a lukewarm welcome from the province's 80,000 firearm certificate holders.

Many of them are farmers who require a shotgun or rifle for pest control on their holdings.

Gordon Anderson of Countryside Alliance Ireland said: "There are some positive changes in the draft legislation, but we believe the NIO missed an important opportunity to fully deliver fair and sensible firearms laws in the province."

He added: "The province's shooters will welcome an extension to the life of a firearms certificate, from the present three years to five."

Mr Anderson said they would be seeking a meeting with PSNI to discuss the order's implications.

"Store unloaded firearms in a locked cabinet, gun vault or storage case and place any storage case in a location inaccessible to children."

That way, when a home invader breaks into your home, you will not have easy access to your tools of self defense.

"Unloaded firearms may be secured with a gun-locking device that renders the firearm inoperable."

That way, your assailant can begin raping, beating and strangling you to death in relative comfort and safety, while you try to fumble with the lock.

"Store ammunition in a locked location separate from firearms."

That's right. Because every self-respecting home invader will wait for you to locate your ammo and lock and load.
