Chattanooga, “The Scenic City of the South,” No More

By Ed Wood, staff writer

“Be nice or leave.” That is the admonition given by a friendly Chattanooga neighborhood nestled just across the Tennessee River, between the Lookout and Signal mountains. Obviously there are some who did not heed that advice.

Who would have thought that a tragedy like we have just seen    CHATTANOOGA SEALcould have happened in such a nice place? The answer may surprise you. We brought it upon ourselves!

The murderer in this instance was Youssef Mohammad Abdulazeez. And political correctness being what it is, CNN would not use his name for fear it might suggest that he is a Muslim. In a live TV interview, the chief FBI investigator from Knoxville said he wanted to make it perfectly clear that although the investigation is being conducted as a terrorist event, it has not been classified as such. The Administration is still calling it “workplace violence.”

But the problem goes far beyond a loose border, where some 400,000 illegal aliens enter each year. Under current U.S. immigration policy, an ISIS terrorist doesn’t need to hop a fence or swim a river to reach America. He can enter the U.S. legally as a student, as a skilled guest-worker, as a refugee, as an entrepreneur, or as a tourist; fly here in the comfort of a jumbo jet — and never leave.

The sheriff of nearby Putman County recently told me that he is currently attempting to track some 1,500 Middle Eastern students who came to the Tennessee Tech University, located there, dropped out, and simply disappeared into the local community. Our community. My community!

According to Census data, the U.S. welcomes about 100,000

Muslim immigrants legally each year. This represents the fastest growing segment of immigrants coming to America. Youssef Mohammad Abdulazeez arrived with his parents from Kuwait at the age of 6. He was educated in American public schools, was an engineering graduate of the University of Tennessee, and by all accounts was a fully assimilated U.S. naturalized citizen.

But something happened. Last year, at the age of 23, he traveled to Jordan and Yemen for seven months. U.S. intelligence agencies aren’t sure who he visited or what he may have been taught while there. But when he returned home, he grew his beard out and started writing a Muslim blog in which he made philosophical, anti-American statements.

FBI Director James Comey’s dire warning to Congress several   weeks ago now seems prophetic because it applies perfectly to

young Muslims like Abdulazeez. He said the message from ISIS to American Muslim youth is, “Come to the ISIS Caliphate state if you  can, and kill somebody. But if you can’t, just kill somebody where you are.” Obviously, Youssef Mohammad Abdulazeez did just that.

Clare Lopez, vice president of research and analysis for the Center for Security Policy and a former CIA analyst says, “With the U.S. so liberally allowing more Muslims into the country – about 800 new refugees a month come from one country, Somalia, arguably the most jihadist-rich country in the world — we have no idea if there are hundreds, thousands or hundreds of thousands across America today who decide to pledge their allegiance to the Shariah doctrine of jihad.”

And where do American Muslim youth go to feed on the poison of Islamic jihadism? “Muslim mosques — like the one in neighboring

Murfreesboro, TN — Islamic cultural centers, and online indoctrination all play some role,” Lopez said. “But neither Comey, nor the FBI, nor local law enforcement currently has the legal right or investigative tools to identify and stop such individuals before they take the next step on the pathway to violent jihad.” We can’t give the impression of profiling, or being racially prejudiced, you know.

This country spends an estimated $58 Billion a year on our intelligence services. They missed 9/11. They missed Fort Hood. They missed the Boston bombing. And they missed Chattanooga!

Senator Jeff Sessions from neighboring Alabama cited a recent

warning by the Citizenship and Immigration Council that, “Our government cannot effectively track these foreign visitors and immigrants … Applications for entry are rubber-stamped. We’ve become the visa clearinghouse for the world.”

Former Representative Michele Bachmann, (R-MN), has long been concerned by the rising immigration rate from hostile countries and the increasing incidents of Islamic terror. When she served in the House, she warned that, “Terrorism is real, barbaric and will continue on American soil until the U.S. determines to get serious about prevention.” She said, “Across the world, wherever Muslim immigration has been allowed to flourish, a connection to terrorism has also flourished. No one has a right to immigrate to America. It is our choice as to who we allow to gain entrance to our great land.”

And she should know. The Minneapolis/St. Paul area has the

largest population of Somalian Muslims outside of Somalia. Just last Sunday, the terrorist group al-Shabab made a propaganda video warning of an attack on shopping malls around the world, including Minnesota’s famous Mall of America, our country’s largest. You will recall, Al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the terror attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Kenya two years ago, which left 67 dead.

So, should we be surprised? Nashville has one of the fastest growing foreign-born populations of any major U.S. city. According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, “the 2000 data showed Nashville with an increase of 210.1 percent in the immigrant population since 1990, which compared with a 6.5 percent increase in the native-born population over the same period. That meant that immigration accounted directly for 45.4 percent of the overall population increase of the city.” Nearby Shelbyville, formerly the Tennessee Walking Horse capital of the world, has become a Somali center because of available employment in the Tyson Foods chicken processing plant there.

What to do? Former Minnesota Congresswoman, Michelle Bachmann said it best: “America is our country. It is time the politicians listen to us, the people who support this nation!”

You know who they are. Get busy!

Political Correctness and Public Health

The term “politically correct” dates back to shortly after the Russian Revolution of 1917. Originally, it only meant adherence to the policies and principles of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (aka the “party line”). Inevitably, though, the term would become one of derision, mocking those who would blindly follow Stalin’s enormous policy flip-flops during and after World War II.

These days, the term is primarily used to mock the imposition of overly precious speech codes, supposedly intended to prevent insult. Too often, though, the net effect is simply censorship. A common complaint is that the choice of what constitutes a worthy class of “victims” to protect, is capricious and wildly inconsistent. Those familiar with George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984 will see that PC is closely related to “Newspeak,” the official language of his fictional country Oceania.

Newspeak seeks to eliminate all rebellious thoughts, and as such contains no negative words. If a resident of Oceania wished to express the concept of “bad,” he must use the word “ungood.” In our present non-fiction world, we have come perilously close to this, with political correctness helping to establish the so-called “narrative.”

The narrative represents the official pre-fabricated version of virtually every cultural, economic, and social encounter in our daily lives. That this narrative is often in conflict with reality is diminishing in importance. Indeed, many have suggested that the imposition of an Orwellian narrative has fueled much drug and alcohol abuse, even among the truest of true believers.

The quintessential example of “narrative” involves the DC-area Beltway sniper attacks of October, 2002. Every expert in the media, not to mention law enforcement, proclaimed that the perp must be a disaffected white male, a la Timothy McVeigh, the 1995 Oklahoma City bomber. Never mind that McVeigh’s truck bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bore no resemblance to the random individual shootings of the DC-area crimes. The arrest of the black John Muhammad and Lee Malvo for the sniper attacks was greeted with shock and disbelief. It didn’t fit the narrative.

The first significant intrusion of PC into the realm of public health came in the 1980s with the AIDS epidemic. Many healthcare professionals expressed dismay that the newly found civil rights of those infected seemed to trump the accepted tenets of caution, infection control, and medical history documentation. Likewise, eminent virologist Peter Duesberg—a prominent but hardly the sole voice disputing the HIV/AIDS theory—found himself ostracized by “mainstream” science.

As with any big-time medical issue in which tens of billions of dollars are at stake (cf. cholesterol theory of coronary heart disease), it is dangerous to go against the narrative. Even when a contrarian can find a suitable forum, he will be faced with a ready panel of well-financed inquisitors, quite prepared to misrepresent the findings of research articles. Inevitably, this leads to an arcane academic discourse; and when language itself—as well as obtaining research grants—can be affected by PC, it becomes nearly impossible to elucidate the truth.

Some wags have suggested that Harvard change its motto from “Veritas” to “Politice Recte.”

In December, 2000, PC, M.D. : How Political Correctness Is Corrupting Medicine, by psychiatrist Sally Satel was published. Among many other examples, Satel describes…

1.     How advocates for crack-addicted pregnant women in South Carolina fought for their freedom to use cocaine during pregnancy.

2.     Public health professors asserting that the high incidence of hypertension in Blacks is a direct result of racial discrimination, basing this almost completely on tendentious arguments involving the slave trade and salt sensitivity.

3.     Baltimore’s Commissioner of Health suggesting that heroin be distributed to addicts, claiming they are too oppressed to help themselves. Ever hear of Suboxone or methadone?

4.     The rise of a movement comprised of former patients who oppose involuntary commitment, or any treatment at all, for those with severe mental illness.

 

Ironically, complaints of “racism” are heard even if ethnic-related findings benefit the patient. Consider the case of BiDil, a drug used in the treatment of heart failure in African Americans (and off-label for anyone else).

Although initial trials failed to show efficacy, further examination of the results in various subgroups indicated a benefit to Black patients, leading to the African American Heart Failure Trial. One group took BiDil along with their usual heart failure medicines. Compared to a similar group of patients—taking only their usual medicines—43% fewer of the BiDil users died during the course of the study and 39% fewer of the BiDil users required hospitalization for heart failure. The BiDil group also reported a significant improvement in their day-to-day functioning.

Based on these compelling results, the FDA stopped the trial early and approved the drug—for Blacks. B-b-but, this is racist! No less than medical blockhead Francis Collins, now regrettably the director of NIH, averred that “We should move without delay from blurry and potentially misleading surrogates for drug response, such as race, to the more specific causes.” For Collins, PC really is more important than public health.

As Henry I. Miller—biomedical scientist, former FDA drug regulator, and Hoover Institution scholar—noted, “[Collins] was correct, of course, but you make therapeutic choices using the data you have, not the data you wish to have. Political correctness notwithstanding, drug testing, approvals, and labeling must go wherever the evidence leads.”

Army Major sentenced to 20 years after exposing Political Correctness Run Amok in the Military

By Glenn MacDonald, Major USARMY (Ret)

A SPECIAL INVESTIGATIVE REPORT by Major Glenn MacDonald, Editor of MilitaryCorruption.com revealed an American “Dreyfus Affair” taking place in the U.S. Army as Major Erik Burris is railroaded by his former JAG colleagues.

Major MacDonald writes of:

RETALIATION AGAINST [BURRIS] FOR TELLING TRUTH
IN PREVIOUS COURT-MARTIAL ABOUT HOW ARMY
PUSHES ALL FEMALE SEX CHARGE CASES TOWARD
COURT-MARTIAL EVEN IF NO PROOF – DECEPTIVE
PRESS RELEASE AT CONCLUSION OF MAJOR’S
TRIAL AND CONVICTION FOR RAPE FAILED TO SAY
ARMY’S OWN INVESTIGATIVE OFFICER FOUND
BURRIS’ WIFE ACCUSER TO BE “UNTRUTHFUL”
RECOMMENDED MAJ NOT BE COURT-MARTIALED
NONETHELESS, HE GETS 20 YEARS IN PRISON

If a tree falls in the forest at midnight, who is there to hear it happen? That’s an unwritten axiom from the public affairs office handbook.

When the Army PAO at Fort Bragg released a terse statement to the media at the conclusion of MAJ Erik Burris’ recent court-martial that the former JAG prosecutor had been found guilty of rape and sentenced to 20 years in prison, they deliberately and deceitfully left out one very important fact.

The JAGs own female investigative officer – LTC Jessica Halling – not only found the major’s accuser – his estranged wife – was “untruthful” and “embellished” her charges, but recommended at the Article 32 (preliminary) hearing that the case NOT proceed to court-martial.

Here is a sample of what she wrote:

“My assessment is that Ms. Burris’ allegations . . . her statements to the CID . . . were driven by a combination of motives. The evidence in the case files and testimony suggests she embellished and made untruthful and/or inconsistent claims . . . her displayed emotion . . . didn’t appear genuine . . . I am left with no other alternative but that Ms. Burris is fabricating her allegations.”

However, the powers-that-be were so determined to destroy MAJ Burris, they inexplicably ignored the investigating officer’s findings and recommendation, and dropped the hammer on the former JAG supervisor’s head.

BURRIS MADE ENEMIES WITHIN THE JAG

This is worse than “don’t confuse me with the facts, my mind’s already made up.” We at MilitaryCorruption.com call it out for what it is – a crime in itself. The so-called guardians of justice went and denied justice to one of their own.

“The JAG leadership eats its own when they go off the reservation,” an informed source at Fort Bragg told one of our investigators. That certainly appears to be the case here.

Burris became a marked man when he testified at the court-martial of a JAG captain being bum-rushed into jail on bogus charges. Under oath, the major acknowledged the truth that even in cases where there was little or no proof, he was pressured to always take cases involving female sex charges to court-martial. Political-correctness run amok.

What has happened to MAJ Burris reminds us of an ugly bit of history that shows the more things change, the more they stay the same.

MEMORIES OF THE CAPT DREYFUSS AFFAIR

In 1894, a young artillery officer, Captain Alfred Dreyfuss, was railroaded into prison by a corrupt and venal French Army Command.

He was convicted of “treason” based upon false statements and phony “documents” and sent to the infamous penal colony at Devil’s Island in French Guiana.

There was an uproar back home where famed French writer Emile Zola published an open letter – J’accuse – in a Paris newspaper and rallied the nation to demand justice in the Dreyfuss case.

Eventually, after the captain had served five years at Devil’s island, he was brought back to France and ultimately pardoned. He was reinstated into the French Army as a major, served honorably in World War I, and retired at the rank of lieutenant colonel.

If only the Burris case could end on a similar note.

AN “UNQUESTIONING” MAINSTREAM MEDIA

When the news first broke about the senior JAG’s conviction and draconian sentence, the “mainstream media” unquestioningly regurgitated just what the Army public affairs disinformation specialists wanted them to.

Remember the unwritten PAO handbook? The sin of omission is sometimes worse that of commission.

We don’t have a man of the stature of Emile Zola on our staff, but we do have a track record over 16 years online of a string of victories won and crooked officers exposed. MCC hasn’t grown to the extent where we get up to six million hits, worldwide, a month, by being an ineffectual blog. We are a commercial website, here to stay, that fights for the truth and exposes the corrupt.

That is why someday MAJ Erik Burris will regain his freedom and salvage his military career. He has been the victim of a Dreyfuss-type injustice, and with your help, dear reader, and God’s, the former JAG prosecutor will win the final victory.

[EDITOR’S NOTE: — If you agree with us the Army has acted shamefully in this matter, and are willing to contact your members of Congress as well as local news media to voice your protest and views, please do so without delay. When MAJ Burris was dragged out of the courtroom in chains, the gendarmes grabbed up his Bible and took it away from him. Your prayers are also appreciated.

A Deeply Unpopular Commander In Chief

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

The Military Times posted a long article in which its poll of active duty military came to the startling conclusion that Obama, the Commander-in-Chief, is highly unpopular among the rank and file of the nation’s defenders! Using the military for social experiments, purging the ranks of competent, patriotic leaders and implementing a massive reduction in force are not likely to endear Obama to the troops.  The Military Times won’t admit it but Obama does not care about the people who work for him and this is especially true for members of the military.  In spite of varying opinions of President Bush, he deeply cared about the troops. Obama on the other hand, by his own actions, cares only about Islamic terrorists, his global partners in crime.

Our troops have lost respect not only for the Commander-in-Chief, but for lawmakers in general, reflecting a growing trend among their millennial peers. The phony nature of Obama’s ostensibly caring façade has long since been discovered. People have lost faith in government and see it as the problem, not the solution. Service members are reflecting the mood of the American public and its frustration with the daily soap opera being fed them by Administration acolytes in the “mainstream” media. How could it be otherwise when soldiers are feeling the pain of pay reductions, being forced out of the service and watching as peers are court marshaled for doing their job? And how many have been wounded or killed as a result of repeated deployments under questionable rules of engagement. 

Obama’s social engineering is being compared to President Truman’s 1948 order that desegregated the American military that was originally segregated by another Democrat, Woodrow Wilson after World War I. However, Obama’s heavy-handed, leftist agenda has undermined deep-seated traditions and compromised good order and discipline. When laws and regulations don’t matter the military will no longer function as a cohesive unit. In time Obama’s meddling will fail to be historically significant.  Obama’s true legacy will be seen in the erosion of the career military force. Who would want to serve in a force that glorifies deviance and immediately identifies any male troop with sexual assault. Thanks to Barack Hussein, ours has become a military focused on political correctness rather than combat readiness.

Obama is trying to mold the American Armed Forces into America’s Community Organizers.

Never mind those thugs in the NFL cause it’s all Roger Goodell’s fault

 

By Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer

How quickly our despicably dishonest media turned the theme of black male violence into an uncaring white guy scenario which blames the depravity of NFL thugs on Roger Goodell.  Just consider the fact that Ray Rice punched his wife so hard that her head was driven THREE FEET backward and into the wall of a casino elevator.  Take a second look at this young lady being dragged out of the elevator, UNCONSCIOUS, while her feet are left across the track of doors that could quickly close.  Janay Palmer Rice went back to her abusive husband.   But the violence of Black males, especially of black football players, has been dropped by a media spin machine that protects blacks and blames whites, especially white males, nearly every time.

Now comes the push to demand the resignation of Goodell, the white guy, in order to replace him with Condoleeza Rice, a black female.  The politically correct quotient managers can get a two for one up-tick on their own sick lever of remaking American society.  Let’s take a look at the Adrian Peterson lashing of his own child.  Or what about the 1999 conviction of the “Carolina Panthers’ Rae Carruth for conspiring to kill his then-pregnant girlfriend?” (1)  Other jaw dropping examples of violent, black football players and their treatment of  women and children are out there, but somehow not in the MSM.  These examples certainly never received the media play that is being heaped on the old meanie Roger Goodell.                     

Let’s take a look at underlying causes of the NFL’s hypocritical stance.  Money talks, right?  Well, how about “cheerleaders from nearly a half-dozen NFL teams (who) filed lawsuits alleging they were paid dismal wages, harshly examined through physical “JIGGLE TESTS’ and demeaned in public appearances in which they would be expected to sit on strangers’ laps.” (2)  Everywhere you cliq on your remote, sex is being sold along with the uber violence of football that endangers young males’ bodies with every hit they take. So viewers are getting double doses of the pain-gain-pleasure syndrome sung about by Rihanna who herself took it on the chin when she went back to her abuser.

According to the lyrics of the pain-pleasure theme prevalent in today’s hyper-sexualized culture. “…that’s alright Because I like the way it hurts.” (3) What the media aren’t telling you is that Eminem, along with two other males, wrote this song which also expresses how males feel in this culture.  He sings, “Life is no Nintendo game But you lied again It’s the rage that took over.”  Never giving the full side of any story they tell, our media just grabbed onto the “I like the way it hurts” of the female, but not the lies (no justification, however), the rage, the hurt the male feels.  For years, males in our country were reared with Christian values to never hit a woman, no matter what.  But our PC media have successfully wiped Christian values out of their spin zone.

And why won’t the media expound with chagrin over the generational damage heinous black rap music has done as it denigrates and defiles women?  But Roger stands for the badness that is named white guy, and out he goes.  One pundit even said Ray Rice did it because “slavery was full of violence” and that black males learned to be that way because of slavery!

Well, as a teacher that saw black male violence up close, let me just say it is shocking.  I asked one of my female students to stay after class one day when I noticed the pretty African-American woman was limping and had injuries all over her arms.  She told me her husband picked her up and threw her against each wall in their living room.  He had re-played the phone answering machine to hear a message a visiting cousin’s male friend had left for her.  The abusive husband just assumed that the message was for his wife and without checking further, he beat the daylights out of her. “Oh, your voices sounded alike,” he said. Of course, she went back to him. 

At least Eminem is honest when he tells us, “When it’s going great, I’m Superman with the wind at [my] back.  She’s Lois lane.  But when it’s bad, it’s awful.” (4) As expected, America’s media are just repeating the tried and true, politically correct mantra that the white guy made the black guy do it; that women can be sexualized over and over for media’s bottom line; that the elevator wall can be fixed, that the colonial male must go and the American Woman is society’s answer to the sick world created by a hypocritical, media-entertainment sex-sells culture.
