Bloomberg: You ain’t got the cohonnas to do your job!

Another Rant By: BettyJean

We either stand up to those who are supposed to be representing our wishes or we cave in to being governed by those who don’t give a damned what we think. What’s more- if they allow our Constitution to be twisted and misinterpreted–  tell me what the hell is the use of having it? I say we scrap the whole damned government and start all over again.

Is this America or is this some Islamic country? All of a sudden it is fashionable for us to point fingers at Americans and police officers but not possible terrorists who fit the MO of those who have been threatening TO KILL us and DESRTROY OUR WAY OF LIFE !

We have been receiving threats since the early 90′s from Osama Bin Laden and others threatening us with destruction. Video tape after video tape – we are told our time is coming.

Americans are converting in order to commit Jihad on us and jihadist are becoming citizens in order to infiltrate and do harm. We are even offing 80,000.00 scholarships to educate these people  so they can later turn against us and plot to kill us while Americans are left uneducated. Suddenly we have Jihad Jane’s springing up in hajabs, and young men are  traveling to Pakistan to wage jihad cap what appears to be a record year for homegrown terror plots. In May, President Obama designated homegrown terrorism as one of the country’s top national security priorities.

WTF?

At first we were attacked overseas by a Suicide bomber who killed 241 American troops 25 years ago in barracks October 23, 2008. The USS Cole bombing was a suicide attack against the U.S. Navy destroyerUSS Cole (DDG 67) on October 12, 2000 while it was harbored and refueling in the Yemeni port of Aden. 17 American sailors were killed, and 39 were injured. This event was the deadliest attack against a U.S. Naval vessel since 1987.

There were others but  I want to concentrate on the idiots whose PC is making it easier for our enemies to attack us right here at home. We are not only turning a blind eye – we are actually aiding and abetting the enemy and accusing our own citizens of being Islamophobic instead of cautious. 

We are told not to jump to conclusions while time after time – we are right and – we are blamed eroneously. Please be rational here and explain with all the following proof I submit and tell me how WE are jumping to conclusions? These people have declared war on civilians and on our way of life. They want to impose Sharia Law and subvert our Constitution. We are not only in danger politically, we are in danger socially and the mosque must be stopped.

And I will tell you something else that must be stopped, the ridiculous pointing fingers AWAY from the terrorists and at our own innocent citizens who have enough common sense to know when to take a threat for exactly what it is – A threat!

If Bloomberg is afraid of Islam and what they might do to him if he resists – let him retire- and let’s get a mayor with the Cohonnas to do the job he was elected to do! It is time for us to stop complaining and start forcing these politicians to DO THEIR JOBS!

Ms Robinowitz says it better than I drop her a note and let her know!

By DOROTHY RABINOWITZ Americans may have lacked for much in the course of their history, but never instruction in social values. The question today is whether Americans of any
era have ever confronted the bombardment of hectoring and sermonizing now directed at those whose views are deemed insufficiently enlightened—an offense regularly followed by accusations that the offenders have violated the most sacred principles of our democracy.


Deputy Editorial Page Editor Bret Stephens and Editorial Board member Matthew Kaminski on the plan for a ‘Mosque at Ground Zero,’ and Senior Editorial Writer Joseph Rago reports on the Missouri results.

It doesn’t take a lot to become the target of such a charge. There is no mistaking the beliefs on display in these accusations, most recently in regard to the mosque about to be erected 600 feet from Ground Zero. Which is that without the civilizing dictates of their superiors in government, ordinary Americans are lost to reason and decency. They are the kind of people who—as a recent presidential candidate put it—cling to their guns and their religion.

There is no better exemplar of that faith than New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, though in this he is hardly alone. Compared with the Obama White House, Mr. Bloomberg is a piker in the preachments and zealotry department. Still, no voice brings home more unforgettably the attitudes that speak for today’s enlightened and progressive class.

Immediately after the suspect in the attempted car bombing near Times Square was revealed to be Faisal Shahzad, of Pakistani origin, Mayor Bloomberg addressed the public. In admonishing tones—a Bloomberg trademark invariably suggestive of a school principal who knows exactly what to expect of the incorrigibles it is his unhappy fate to oversee—the mayor delivered a warning. There would be no toleration of “any bias or backlash against Pakistani or Muslim New Yorkers.”

That there has been a conspicuous lack of any such behavior on the part of New Yorkers or Americans elsewhere from the 9/11 attacks to the present seems not to have impressed Mr. Bloomberg. Nor has it caused any moderation in the unvarying note of indignation the mayor brings to these warnings. It’s reasonable to raise a proper caution. It’s quite something else to do it as though addressing a suspect rabble.

It’s hard to know the sort of rabble the mayor had in mind when he told a television interviewer, prior to Shahzad’s identification, that it “could be anything,” someone mentally disturbed, or “somebody with a political agenda who doesn’t like the health-care bill.” Nowhere in the range of colorful possibilities the mayor raised was there any mention of the most likely explanation—another terrorist attempt by a soldier of radical Islam, the one that occurred to virtually every American who had heard the reports.

The citizens were, of course, right. Those leaders bent on dissuading them from their grasp of the probable cause of this near disaster were left with their red herrings hanging—but remembered. Mr. Bloomberg’s “someone who doesn’t like the health-care bill” would be inscribed in the golden book of howlers these events have yielded, along with Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano’s brisk assurance there was no evidence this was anything but “a one-off.”

When a car bomb was discovered in Times Square in May, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg suggested every possible motivation but the obvious and correct one: Islamist terror.

The notion that it is for the greater good that the people be led to suspect virtually any cause but the one they had the most reason to fear reflects a contempt for the citizenry that’s of longstanding, but never so blatant as today. It is in the interest of higher values, Americans understand—higher, that is, than theirs—that they are now expected to accept official efforts to becloud reality.

Such values were the rationale for the official will to ignore the highly suspicious behavior of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who went on to murder 13 Americans at Fort Hood. A silence maintained despite all his commanders and colleagues knew about his raging hostility to the U.S. military and his strident advocacy on behalf of political Islam.

Those who knew—and they were many—chose silence out of fear of seeming insensitive to a Muslim. As one who had said nothing in the interest of this higher good later explained, Maj. Hasan was, after all, one of the few top-ranking Muslim officers the army had.

In the plan for an Islamic center and mosque some 15 stories high to be built near Ground Zero, the full force of politically correct piety is on display along with the usual unyielding assault on all dissenters. The project has aroused intense opposition from New Yorkers and Americans across the country. It has also elicited remarkable streams of oratory from New York’s political leaders, including Attorney General Andrew Cuomo.

“What are we all about if not religious freedom?” a fiery Mr. Cuomo asked early in this drama. Mr. Cuomo, running for governor, has since had less to say.

The same cannot be said for Mr. Bloomberg, who has gone on to deliver regular meditations on the need to support the mosque, and on the iniquity of its opponents. In the course of a speech at Dartmouth on July 16 he raised the matter unasked, and held forth on his contempt for those who opposed the project and even wanted to investigate the funding: “I just think it’s the most outrageous thing anybody could suggest.” Ground Zero is a “very appropriate place” for a mosque, the mayor announced, because it “tells the world” that in America, we have freedom of religion for everybody.

Here was an idea we have been hearing more and more of lately—the need to show the world America’s devotion to democracy and justice, also cited by the administration as a reason to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in New York City. Who is it, we can only wonder, that requires these proofs? What occasions these regular brayings on the need to show the world the United States is a free nation?

It’s unlikely that the preachments now directed at opponents of the project by Mayor Bloomberg and others will persuade that opposition. Those fighting the building recognize full well the deliberate obtuseness of Mr. Bloomberg’s exhortations, and those of Mr. Cuomo and others: the resort to pious battle cries, the claim that antagonists of the plan stand against religious freedom. They note, especially, the refusal to confront the obvious question posed by this proposed center towering over the ruins of 9/11.

It is a question most ordinary Americans, as usual, have no trouble defining. Namely, how is it that the planners, who have presented this effort as a grand design for the advancement of healing and interfaith understanding, have refused all consideration of the impact such a center will have near Ground Zero? Why have they insisted, despite intense resistance, on making the center an assertive presence in this place of haunted memory? It is an insistence that calls to mind the Flying Imams, whose ostentatious prayers—apparently designed to call attention to themselves on a U.S. Airways flight to Phoenix in November 2006—ended in a lawsuit. The imams sued. The airlines paid.

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser—devout Muslim, physician, former U.S. Navy lieutenant commander and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy—says there is every reason to investigate the center’s funding under the circumstances. Of the mosque so near the site of the 9/11 attacks, he notes “It will certainly be seen as a victory for political Islam.”

The center may be built where planned. But it will not go easy or without consequence to the politicians intent on jamming the project down the public throat, in the name of principle. Liberal piety may have met its match in the raw memory of 9/11, and in citizens who have come to know pure demagoguery when they hear it. They have had, of late, plenty of practice.

  1. Saudi prince Alwaleed, who right after 9/11 personally went to Ground Zero and offered then-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani a $10 million check for the relief efforts. But Alwaleed could not keep his mouth shut. He released a bizarre statement that blamed the attacks — not on the 15 airline hijackers from Saudi Arabia — but on the United States’ support of Israel. Giuliani, “America’s mayor” immediately refused the prince’s donation. He said: “There is no moral equivalent for this attack.”

    So apparently Mayor Bloomberg believes there is.

    Sell them the actual site of the massacre as well. What’s the difference?

  2. This is disgusting..This man clearly has an agenda…Mayor Bloomberg wake up…It was not an act of war..The terrorist killed these poor Americans..He did not have to put a mosque across from Ground Zero..He can put it somewhere else..For you as a Jewish man not being against this is heartless…This Imam man has to move it..show some class..Then again you dont have the cojones…
