Happy New Year, I Guess. S.O.S.D.Y.

While reading a recent article on the bombing in Egypt of a Coptic church, I came across the following comment:

Stink Finger

We now live about 30 miles from Fresno . We are up in the Sierras and Fresno is the first big town we encounter when we leave the mtns. We shop there often.. I received this from my ex-homicide partner who is still active in law enforcement circles in the Fresno area.

Excuse the language, but don't excuse the facts. Don't give up your guns, and buy necessary ammunition if you can find it. Be cautious and alert. Be ready if, God forbid, we need to protect our families and loved ones.

If you weren't at Rotary meeting on Friday, you missed the only decent speaker we've had in more than a year. LTC John Cotter is the 144th Fighter Wing's antiterrorism officer. John had a two-part presentation. First part was describing his job as the unit’s antiterrorism officer. Pretty standard stuff

The second part was information that will curl your hair. A Part-time air guardsman works as a checker at local Von's. Two women in full burkas buy every pre-paid cellphone in the store. Clerk/airman gets to thinking about it. Goes to Cotter and reports incident. Cotter asks store for surveillance video. It's scary enough that he contacts Fresno FBI.

FBI investigates and determines these women have been doing this all over the Valley. Cell phones shipped through Canada to Iraq/Afghanistan where they become triggers for roadside bombs.

The Shell station at Peach and Shaw. Every time a local GI goes there in fatigues they are asked specific questions. What is your unit? When are you deploying? How many aircraft are you taking?

The F-16's out of Fresno fly CAP for west coast. As such they are the first line of defense so they have the US 's most sophisticated air-to-ai r missiles. Foreign governments would like to get their hands on those missiles or at least learn how to build them. Also how many we have, etc. Two spy groups are working on it, one based at Fashion Fair Mall (the F-16's take-off pattern) and one based at Sierra Vista Mall (the F-16's landing pattern).

Cotter said the @#$%s (But we don't profile) are always probing the base. Two dorks in a pickup show up at the front gate wanting to deliver a package marked Air National Guard, Fresno . No postage, no UPS, no FedEx, no DHL, no nothing. Just a probe.

I asked Cotter why we haven't seen anything about this in The Bee, on KMJ, on local TV news. He said they're not interested. Since Friday I've learned of two other things. My brother-in-law, Frank, (management at Avaya) had a Muslim tech who took a leave-of-absence for 6 weeks in Afghanistan . After the 6 weeks were up he called from New York requesting an extension. Frank (who does profile) said, you're fired, and called the Fresno FBI who were very interested. Don't know the outcome.

A Muslim who owns a liquor store in my former hometown of Kingsburg was constantly bugging customers to buy guns for him. Finally one of the guys I grew up with called the FBI.

We are a country at war and the enemy is among us. I don't care what Janet Napolitano says, it's a fight to the death and we should be prepared as possible Brother-in-law Frank has a theory and I think it may be closer to the truth than Homeland Security wants to admit. There are a certain number (probably a large number) of Muslims among us who are awaiting the trigger date and will begin randomly killing as many of us as they can, sort of a Fort Hood on steroids. I know I'm getting prepared to shoot back.

Two items of interest: Sheriff Margaret Mims wants to grant concealed carry permits to all who are qualified. Columnist Jim Boren, among the most bleeding of the bleeding heart liberals, says it's time for Fresno residents to arm themselves. LOAD up, you can bet this is happening in places other than Fresno .

I was asked to send this to everyone in my address book. Some of those I'm se

For what it's worth.
Be aware of your surroundings.
Be suspicious of everything out of the ordinary.
Be safe.

If at all feasible, be armed at all times. You may be all that stands between a terrorist and his victims. Our Government has proven that it doesn't care about it's citizens by not securing our borders. So you are your own family's only defense!

Happy New Year.

Addendum: Remember Beslan


  1. This is good info, I work at a state building doing federal contract work here in PA, we have 15 full time officers and about ten part time, the volume of threats via phone and mail has increased so much in the last three or so months we can't read all the e-mails forwarding them to us. The BOLO's coming down at least once a week now are getting enlightening since I believe some of the administration is starting to get scared. The amazing thing is that as scared as they may be the contractors doing work in the complex still are using "green card" holders, this while the janitor service they use can't even get new employees to assign to us since they can't pass the background checks. It's amazing how far they will go not to see illegals but they will block others in a heart beat. The illegals are not just Mexicans looking for work, we have Arabs working around and inside the complex and buildings who are not US citizens simply because they work for an outside contractor. The amount and type of information we have inside would scare you to death and make you not sleep at night, yet they are here. They are willing to give us assistance when we talk about street crime but don't even mention terrorism because they simply go to sleep. Be good and watch your six, Bernie.........

  2. Scout, Happy New Year.

    Thanks for putting the article ad comment up, it is pretty scary stuff and I am sure it is happening all over the country but the public would crap themselves if they knew about everything going on..


  3. Could the religion of peace possibly be so patient that they would put sleepers in all the nighborhoods waiting for a "trigger day" to pull off a massive coordinated terrorist attack?? That is so horrible, so devious, that it actually seems likely...

  4. Anony 1900: devious.. horrible... and exactly what they'd do. Exactly what our LEOs should be looking out for, as well- but our dear commie lib dotgov doesn't allow profiling... why oh why, wonders I, is that so? and the answer is plain as the nose on your face... because it's exactly what they want: another method of taking down the biggest kid on the block.
