It’s been a revealing year or so here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA. The American Perpetual War Machine is as itchy for war with Russia as it’s ever been and we’re as nonchalant as we’ve ever been about committing flagrant acts of war all over the globe while […]
Today in America, hundreds of American baby boys and girls will be openly, systematically and “legally” murdered. They will then often be “legally” dismembered and “legally” sold piecemeal to “legally” protected (and often taxpayer funded) ghouls. Today in America, the once-private conversations of American citizens are slurped up and analyzed by an Orwellian surveillance system so thorough in […]
If you thought the proliferation of Dumb and Dumber sequels was a really bad sign for America, you oughta check out Fox News‘ endless parade of “conservative” commentators (many of whom claim to be Christian, of course). These guys (and gals) effortlessly captivate the hearts, minds, and political passions of vast numbers of professing Christians in the land, leading […]
Kill ‘Em All! It’s not just a snappy Metallica album title anymore. Now it’s effectively become the slogan of many (if not most) politically active professing Christians in America as both evidenced and inspired by the latest America Idol worship leader to tickle their ears and capture their fancy, one Mr. Donald Trump. (See: When Conservatism Trumps Christianity.) […]
Is privacy just too much to expect these days in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA? Why yes, of course it is! (See: Privacy is for masters. Transparency is for slaves. Welcome to “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.) What a stupid – and increasingly […]
Ever wonder what a culture dominated and defined by fear might look like? Fear of the world and what’s in it, I mean. Not a fear of the Lord. While the latter sustains and enables the increase of all true life, hope, joy, prosperity and security, the former erodes all of the same until they have completely vanished. […]
Okay, before you go writing me off as crazy here, please just follow my line of logic for a sec… Back in June it was reported that 73 TSA workers were found to be on the U.S. “Terrorist Watch List”. Then this week we were informed that 72 DHS workers were found to be on […]
As if we needed yet another sign that American culture is both presently under the wrath of God and begging for more, we got the following gem this week from The New York Daily News: To which a biblically literate person might well respond: God is fixing this, and perfectly so. An American culture that believes its […]
What a difference a few years make. Seems like just yesterday that al-Qaeda was the living embodiment of evil and the reason why we must surrender our freedom and liberty to the State for the sake of “security” while pursuing wars here, there, and everywhere across the globe in the name of “fighting terror”. Today […]
It’s not hard to see what’s going on here. It’s more a matter of desire than ability for most; of not wanting to see that which is obvious but far too frightening and intimidating to acknowledge as truth. The US and its allies routinely find ways of “accidentally” funding and fueling ISIS, al Qaeda, and […]
So even the Germans are creeped out by our Surveillance State. Nice. I mean, you’ve got to admit, that’s a pretty impressive thing we just did there. Way to go, ‘merica! [insert “U!-S!-A!” chant here] As The Washington Post reported today, Germany has formally requested that the US CIA station chief based in the country just go ahead […]
I can remember living in Seattle just over a decade ago, right before the world was scheduled to end by way of another colossal Microsoft screw-up. Maybe all the techno-apocalyptic hubbub was just another marketing ploy concocted for the likes of Hal Lindsey and Pat Robertson, or maybe it was all a part of prepping the world for Vista. We may never know, but, whatever the case on the Y2K front, Seattle in 1999 definitely was an interesting place to be.
The political sea was churning.
The world was watching.
Progress was in the air.
So let’s see here…
Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was known to oppose the American war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
He made it clear that he viewed the American-led “war on terror” as a “war on Islam”.
He was a Muslim.
He liked to post at radical Islamic websites.
He agreed with much of what they had to say.
In the morning hours of September 11th, 2001, America changed.
For many of the nation’s people, the change was permanent. It was forever. For others, those of the perpetual “move on” mantra, the transformative events of that day were to be forgotten as quickly as possible.
