China reveals 'ace' against U.S. military ~ by F. Michael Maloof

As WND previously has reported, China is giving a priority to developing EMP weapons that could be used against U.S. aircraft carriers, which increasingly are arriving in the South and East China Seas as part of the new U.S. “pivot” policy toward Asia.

That policy is to challenge China’s claims over all of the East and South China Seas and the increasing assertiveness by Beijing, which is trying to gain exclusive control over vital minerals and energy in the region.
When you see this column posted here today, please do not conclude that it is is just more fear-mongering paranoia. This is not posted here because of a paranoid threat of World War III starting tomorrow. There is much more to this column than the reporting on a military threat from China that you'll learn on close scrutiny.

During previous American Presidential administrations, it is doubtful that China would not only attempt an attack on American forces defending Taiwan, they wouldn't have rattled sabers about it, either, at least not in such a threatening manner. As explained in this column, "the Chinese military has calculated that the U.S. military is too fragmented and, coupled with the downturn in the economy, would be less likely to come to Taiwan’s assistance, forcing Taiwan to defend itself." Does that not say what China thinks of the resolve of our current President? No, Obama is not going to go down in history as our "peace-through-strength" President, is he. If anything, I think it is just the opposite. My conclusion, which I came to a long time ago, as in when Obama took office, is reinforced by this kind of information.

Unless what the Chinese allegedly said was totally fabricated, we should be wondering about the strategy of military cuts, and if that is leaving us vulnerable. I'm just sayin'...


China reveals 'ace' against U.S. military

On WND.com

WASHINGTON – Members of the Chinese military are looking to use an electromagnetic pulse as part of a “one-two punch” to knock out – literally within seconds – all defensive electronics not only on Taiwan but also on U.S. warships that could defend the island.

This revelation comes in an article by Lou Xiaoqing who says the People’s Liberation Army sees an EMP weapon as the primary means of incapacitating Taiwan and disabling American defenders nearby.

Given that such a strategy was made public in an article entitled “Electromagnetic pulse bombs are Chinese ace,” it is seen as reflecting the official Chinese government position.

Xaoqing said that if the Chinese were to use a high-altitude nuclear device which would create the destructive EMP impact on Taiwan’s electronics, it would be exploded at an attitude of 18 miles to avoid damaging civilian and military equipment on the Chinese mainland, which might happen if the bomb exploded at a higher altitude.

“China is attracted to the fight against the U.S. military after the effective range, using them as a means of surprise attack or an intimidation factor,” Xaoqing said. “The United States will abandon the use of aircraft carrier battle groups to defend Taiwan.”

Xaoqing said that the Chinese military has calculated that the U.S. military is too fragmented and, coupled with the downturn in the economy, would be less likely to come to Taiwan’s assistance, forcing Taiwan to defend itself.

Standing Up Against Wealth-Shaming ~ By Michelle Malkin

While he regrets invoking Kristallnacht specifically, Perkins unequivocally refused to back down from his message defending the "creative 1 percent." He reiterated his fundamental point in a TV interview on Monday: "Anytime the majority starts to demonize a minority, no matter what it is, it's wrong. And dangerous. And no good ever comes from it."
I had ample motivation to include Michelle Malkin's column in this venue today. It was in regard to the Wall Street Journal progressive letter-writer Tom Perkins, who charged that there was a progressive war on the top one percent of the wealthy in America. "He called on the left to stop demonizing 'the rich,' and he condemned the Occupy movement's 'rising tide of hatred.'," wrote Michelle.

If I may add my two cents worth of commentary to this column, doesn't it seem ironic that somebody that has succeeded, being the progressive letter-writer Mr. Perkins, starts his own war with other progressives by decrying the War On Wealth? Just sayin'...

On GOPUSA.com


America, we have a bullying epidemic. No, not the school bullying issues that get constant attention from Hollywood, the White House and the media. No, not the "fat-shaming" and "body-shaming" outbreaks on Facebook. The problem is wealth-shaming. Class-shaming. Success-shaming.

The State of the Job Creator is under siege.

Last week, a prominent self-made tech mogul dared to diagnose the problem publicly. His passionate letter to The Wall Street Journal decried the "progressive war on the American 1 percent." He called on the left to stop demonizing "the rich," and he condemned the Occupy movement's "rising tide of hatred."

The mini-manifesto was newsworthy because this truth-teller is not a GOP politician or conservative activist or Fox News personality. As he points out, he lives in the "epicenter of progressive thought, San Francisco." No matter. The mob is shooting the messenger anyway. But maybe, just maybe, his critical message in defense of our nation's achievers will transcend, inspire, embolden and prevail.

John Podesta: Obama 'warming up' to idea of ruling like dictator ~ By Joe Newby

"If he believes, and the Justice department believes, he has the authority to make progress, to strengthen the middle class, give people opportunity in this country, he will take it," Podesta added.

Shortly after Democrats got shellacked in the 2010 midterm elections, Podesta's Center for American Progress released a report saying Obama should use all of his power, including his authority as Commander-in-Chief of the military, to unilaterally enact his progressive agenda.
Well, there it is: the smoking gun. A liberal admitting that Obama wouldn't have any qualms about ruling by executive says volumes about the man in the White House. The author of the column, Joe Newby, is to be commended for posting this story so that we can help inform the sheeple out there that still have their doubts.

The State of the Union address tonight may offer further evidence of Obama's hunger for more power; that will be what I'll be keeping an eye out for. Believe me, though, the speech writers are quite sneaky about sneaking in the insidious remarks, but they will be there. I hope all the bloggers out here in the New Media will be paying attention tonight! Just sayin'...

John Podesta
While appearing on NPR Tuesday morning, White House adviser John Podesta said President Obama is "warming up" to the idea of unilaterally ruling by executive fiat, bypassing Congress whenever he can, CNS News reported.

"But he doesn't like to do this, does he?" the NPR host asked.

"Uh, I think he's warmed up to it," Podesta responded, laughing.

Podesta assured NPR that Obama would be using his executive authority to address a number of issues, including global warming.

Is tide turning? Liberal writer supports Obama impeachment ~ By Allen West

The most well-known examples of Obama changing or issuing laws with the stroke of a pen by issuing executive orders include:
  • Delaying the employer mandate in Obamacare
  •  Changing the types of plans available under Obamacare
  •  Ensuring abortions would be covered under Obamacare
    •  Enacting key provisions of the failed Dream Act to halt deportations of illegal immigrants
    •  Enacting stricter gun-control measures
    •  Sealing presidential records
    •  Creating an economic council
    •  Creating a domestic policy council
    •  Changing pay grades
    Never before in our history had a president done these things,” Hentoff mused. He is baffled that Obama should escape such scrutiny when former President Bill Clinton faced impeachment just for being “a lousy liar.”
    Of course, there are many people on the Conservative side of the political spectrum that would like to see Barack Hussein Obama impeached, and they could list many reasons that are very convincing. And yes, we've even been hearing that there are liberals on the left that also want to impeach the President, and in this column by Allen West, we learn who one of them is.

    However, even if the Republicans can take back the U.S. Senate and keep control of the House, I still highly doubt that there will ever be an impeachment of the President. Nor do I believe the President would resign before an impeachment as former President "Tricky Dick" Nixon did. I think that one of the considerations that leaders in Congress would have to contemplate would be if Obama was out of the White House, would that actually improve things? The thought of Uncle Joe Biden becoming the President would make most of us shudder. I just can't see anybody wanting that to happen, and it is analogous to jumping from a pot of boiling oil into the fire.

    In fact, I'll be praying that Republican candidates for the Senate or House of Representatives stay far away from even mentioning impeachment (or the President's eligibility issues!). That, I believe, is one of the reasons the old establishment GOP seems to be prone to keep Tea Party candidates off the ballots.

    But then, I have a caveat. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I do have this concern that upon the end of Obama's final term in office, that he may not be above finding a way to stay in office due to a national emergency. I'm just sayin'...

    From AllenBWest.com


    In recent fundraising efforts, Democrats have invoked the “I” word – the threat of impeachment — to try and rally liberal progressives as we approach the key 2014 mid-term elections.

    Democrats are working hard to portray this as a full speed effort of conservatives. But it’s not just those center-right who are concerned with President Obama’s executive overreach.

    In an interview with World Net Daily, famed Village Voice journalist Nat Hentoff called Obama “the most dangerous and destructive president ever” and “the worst state…the country has ever been in.

    The untold reason Iran wants the bomb

    “Let’s not forget that earlier this year North Korea, which has the bomb and, in fact, we assess they probably have what are called super EMP nuclear weapons, which is a nuclear weapon specifically designed to make the EMP effect. That’s why all three of their nuclear tests have been so low yield. They’re designed to produce gamma rays, not a big explosion. It’s the gamma rays that make the EMP effect,” Pry told WND. “North Korea, in April, threatened to destroy the United States. The evidence is right there in the headlines if people would only pay attention to them.”
    Iran would love to knock out the United States, if only to make an attack on Israel more feasible. The greatest defender of Israel has been the United States, though with the current occupant of the White House, it's difficult to know if that would still be true if Israel were under attack.



    Iran is surely our enemy, and one that would be highly motivated to eliminate the United States, if not from existence, at least from our Middle East presence. An EMP over the United States would set the country back into the early 19th century, some believe. And there is also the issue of North Korea, who already possesses nuclear weapons.

    However, the good news is that on state levels, the electrical grid is becoming more hardened against EMP, says Dr. Pry. But then, there are still the other problems when computers, phones, and cars don't work. And our enemies still know that an EMP nuke can still destroy America. Just sayin'...

    The untold reason Iran wants the bomb
    How Tehran plans to 'eliminate U.S. as an actor from the world stage'
    WND TV / Radio America

    October 30, 2013 at 9:42 PM
    First, listen to the radio interview with Dr. Peter Pry, Executive Director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security ~ Length 11:07:

    It’s the reason Iran wants the bomb, and why North Korea continues to threaten the United States.

    America’s energy infrastructure is aging and vulnerable to devastation from countries that wish to do us harm as well as from our own sun, but Washington politicians and bureaucrats refuse to take simple, relatively inexpensive steps to solve the potentially disastrous problem.

    The most devastating threat is posed by an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, and a former member of the congressional EMP commission says both the North Korean and Iranian nuclear programs are focused on taking out our nation’s power grids.

    “It is why Iran wants the bomb. We know that from the EMP commission because, in their open source-military writings, they describe using a nuclear weapon to eliminate the United States as an actor from the world stage by means of an EMP attack,” said Dr. Peter Pry, who is also executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security.

    Glenn Beck compares Cuomo to George Wallace, others make comparison to Hitler ~ By Joe Newby

    “We can’t have a free exchange of ideas because you don’t believe we belong here?” Beck asked. “Where would the disenfranchised of the world in history be if we didn’t have that pushback?”
    Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) has not only hurt himself and New York, but he has really hurt the Liberals and Democrats by showing their lack of tolerance for people that don't believe the same way as they do. You should see what both Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity had to say about what Cuomo's very tragic rant:




    The Governor of New York, a state with a national ad campaign trying to draw businesses to their state by giving a ten-year tax amnesty, surely did a disservice to the tax payers in New York, by neutralizing the positive effects that may have been gained. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has snubbed the very people that WOULD bring successful business ventures to New York. When a governor says that they have no room for people that they don't agree with in their state, then what would make him think that an entrepreneur would believe that New York will be open to innovation and bold ideas? That doesn't sound so open to business, Gov. Cuomo! Just sayin'...

    Glenn Beck compares Cuomo to George Wallace, others make comparison to Hitler

    By Joe Newby

    Policy & Issues Examiner

    Cuomo's office backtracked from the governor's comments, claiming he really didn't say what he said, adding that conservative criticism of his comments is "false" and "unfair."

    "The Governor has never demonized the opposition to his gun law nor stance on protecting choice nor marriage equality. The Governor is a gun owner and a Catholic. His faith is very important to him and he respects the Second Amendment," said Cuomo counsel Mylan Denerstein.

    "The Governor was making the point that he makes often: New York is a politically moderate state and an extremist agenda is not politically viable statewide. New York has a long history of electing Democrats and Republicans statewide who are moderate rather than on the extreme ends of the political spectrum. That is an inarguable fact," he added.

    But conservatives aren't buying it.

    American Blackout: EMP Attack ~ By Patrick J. Kiger

    From the article:
    While some doomsayers, such as former U.S. House Speaker and Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, have sounded the alarm about the threat of EMP, others have doubted that such an attack would really be as dire of a threat. In a 2003 paper, Electric Power Research Institute staffer Mario Rabinowitz concluded that an EMP generated by a nuclear blast would be no more harmful to the electrical grid that natural events such as lightning storms...
    Okay, so in other words, we are being told that there is no real threat. Here is a news segment that I saw that also brings up the fact that there are military analysts that say there is nothing to worry about:



    It hit me hard when the thought occurred to me, and the thought is that somebody is lying to us. While the threat seems to be so feasible, the military is downplaying the threat of an EMP attack. If it does happen, then will the U.S. military, and the rest of the critics of an EMP attack (including the U.S. Senate a few years ago), have some kind of deniable plausibility for overlooking this threat that would not only take so many lives, but change America, and the world, forever? Absolutely not! If those "WITH access to current threat assessments" are wrong, we could be in big trouble.  Make your own decision.   Just sayin'...

    AMERICAN BLACKOUT Series - EMP Attack

    By Patrick J. Kiger

    National Geographic

    In this blueprint for a national nightmare, an enemy nation or terrorist group would launch a missile containing a powerful nuclear weapon. The device would explode at high altitude above the U.S. and release a burst of radiation that would interact with the Earth’s magnetic field and atmosphere—including the ionosphere, the thin upper layer filled with free electrons, which facilitates radio communications. As a result, a powerful electrical current would radiate down to the Earth and create additional currents that would course through man-made electrical circuits as well. Electrical infrastructure and electronic devices would receive severe shocks, causing severe, widespread damage. A federal commission of scientific and military experts convened by Congress in 2004 warned that an EMP attack could cause a massive blackout that would affect phone systems, electric power transmission, factories the financial system, and transportation. “Depending on the specific characteristics of the attacks, unprecedented cascading failures of our major infrastructures could result,” the commission warned. “In that event, a regional or national recovery would be long and difficult and would seriously degrade the safety and overall viability of our Nation.” The commission noted that “the longer the outage, the more problematic and uncertain the recovery will be."

    Obama's bogus NSA plans mean nothing ~ By Larry Klayman

    So President Obama’s sham proposals are just that – a ruse to lull the American people to sleep as his NSA continues to rape and pillage our privacy rights and to act as a sword to keep us silenced as he socializes and Muslimizes the nation to his designs.

    It thus falls on us to continue to litigate our cases to a successful conclusion against Obama and the NSA, as this one heroic judge, Richard J. Leon, of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, is the primary hope to protect the citizenry from the tyranny of this administration and its enablers in Congress, short of non-violent revolution.

    ~ Larry Klayman, from the article
    Obama's speech late this last week was given to hopefully quell the fears of the people, and silence those of us who don't feel very comfortable with the NSA spying on us. It was given to allow the mainstream media the ability to say, "There's no more story here. Move along, folks."

    It isn't going to work, hopefully. There is the New Media, and this story won't go away as long as we're still here. But wait! That's the ironic twist to the story, though. If we're right, and the government is using unconstitutional spying techniques against us, not to mention using the IRS to target Obama's political enemies to stifle their freedom of speech, we're then going to be in for some major trouble.

    What I am afraid of, deep down, is that the abilities of the spy agencies are so technologically advanced, that if they are ever used by a tyrannical government that wants to take away our freedom... And Obama's speech should not make anybody feel anymore confident that it couldn't happen. Just sayin'...

    Exclusive: Larry Klayman says NSA will continue 'rape and pillage our privacy rights'

    Earlier today, President Hussein Barack Obama addressed the nation regarding the unconstitutional actions of spying on over 300 million American citizens by his National Security Agency (NSA) in an attempt to deflect from his newest “phony scandal.” The president’s so-called recommendations for his NSA and other intelligence agencies are vague, ill-defined and not genuine in any event.

    In the wake of a host of these scandals, which now includes the NSA revelations by Edward Snowden, which have captured the nation’s and the world’s attention, and our successful lawsuit that recently resulted in the NSA being enjoined from further violation of our Fourth Amendment constitutional rights, the “Mullah in Chief” was caught with his dirty hands in the proverbial cookie jar and now has to appear to make amends to the aggrieved American people.

    No Place for Dissent in Andrew Cuomo's New York ~ By Michael Filozof

    The idea that a sitting governor of the fourth-largest state in the nation can tell people he disagrees with politically that they have "no place" in the state he governs is breathtakingly frightening. I cannot recall any American governor anywhere essentially telling American citizens to shut up or get out of his state. What about the constitutional rights to free speech, free association, and freedom of the press? What ever happened to the Madisonian idea that the rights of political minorities are to be protected from the tyranny of the majority? Whatever happened to all the incessant leftist rhetoric about "diversity" and "multiculturalism"? I guess "diversity" doesn't apply to conservatives, does it?
    ~~ Michael Filozof
    My good friend Phil Elmore shared this blog post from American Thinker on his Facebook timeline. In his description for the timeline update, Phil writes, "Remember when Hillary Clinton famously shrieked that 'We are Americans, and we have a RIGHT to debate and disagree with ANY administration!' Well, Democrats only believe in dissent when they are not in control."

    What makes Gov. Cuomo's statements even more shocking is that in recent months, as Thomas Lifson adds, "New York State is currently running a national ad campaign urging companies to move to New York and open new businesses there, in order to receive a ten year tax holiday." Thomas then states the obvious, that: "These television commercials (seen regularly on Fox News Channel among others) need to be amended to indicate that no businesses owned by or employing people who believe in the Second Amendment or in the sanctity of unborn life are welcome in the state."

    There are a few things that should be considered when reading this blog post. First, despite the 10 year "Tax Holiday" being advertised, knowing what Cuomo has said, would you want to move your business to New York? Would you trust Gov. Cuomo to not regulate your business into oblivion if he didn't agree with you?  Wouldn't you finally say, "Gov. Cuomo, you've lost me..."?  No state, local, or national government that comes out so blatantly saying that diverse beliefs are not welcome, deserves to prosper.

    What I think is really "breathtakingly frightening," is that what Cuomo actually said publicly is probably what most of those on the far left would like to say. But the truth is, they don't have to say anything at all. They hate freedom and free enterprise.  They want Marxism, not capitalism.  Their actions speak louder than words. Just sayin'...

    In a media interview Friday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo tagged his opponents as "extreme conservatives" and said that they "have no place in New York."

    Who are these "extreme conservatives?" Opponents of gun control, abortion, and homosexual marriage, that's who:

    "The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act... Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that's who they are and they're the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the State of New York, because that's not who New Yorkers are."

    Let's deconstruct this for a moment. New York's ultra-draconian "SAFE Act" permanently outlawed all military rifles developed in the past sixty years. It created State Police surveillance of all ammunition sales, and a required that the State Police keep a database of all ammunition purchases. It criminalized the possession of firearm magazines that were legally purchased decades ago without compensating the owners. It was passed at 2 A.M. with no committee hearings and no debate. Legislators were given 15 minutes' notice to vote on a 39 page bill -- not enough time to read it. And Cuomo waived a legal requirement that a three-day waiting period for public input occur before the legislation took effect.

    And if you think that violates the Second, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution... you "have no place in the State of New York."
