While popularity polls and positive sound bytes are ever so important to Western politicians, the steadily strengthening ISIS terrorist army gives the very real impression they could give a Tinker’s Damn less what the Western press, politicians or self-appointed hash tag diplomats think of them. Case in point would be the reports coming out of the Middle East and North Africa that the Islamic Jihadists have not only have charged forward in their seemingly non-stop butchery of innocents, they also have stepped up their death by fire executions of anyone with the backbone to fight back.
Federal law enforcement officials in Cincinnati have announced that the G-Men have busted up another lone wolf Islamic Jihadist attack, this time aimed directly to destroy not only one of the greatest symbols of our American Republic, but also to kill as many lawmakers, staffers, and other police officers as possible. As reported on Jan. 14, 2015 by CBS News, New Yorkand also by WCOP-TV of Cincinnati, Ohio, the FBI has arrested Christopher Lee Cornell, who now goes by the nom de d’Jihad Islamique of Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah on the official charges of attempting to kill a government officer and possession of a firearm in furtherance of attempted crime of violence.
In their push to completely wipe out the national government of Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, terrorist members of the al-Qaeda allied Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) Islamic Jihadist organization have made their way to the westernmost suburbs of Baghdad, as reported by CBS News on Oct. 10, 2014. CBS is also reporting that between the furthest advance of the ISIS column and the center of the nation’s capital sits Baghdad International Airport (BGW) where at least 300 American troops assigned as perimeter security, as reported by the McClatchy News Service on June 30, 2014.

As reported by the Breitbart.com news portal on Oct. 7, 2014, our European and Arab allies are contributing a mere 10 percent of the airstrikes against the al-Qaeda allied terrorists.
Twenty centuries ago and beyond, the Romans knew the best way to keep the drooling masses happy – Bread and Circuses. As long as the Great Unwashed had the government slinging freshly baked loaves (or family size bag o’ pork rinds) at them and they were treated to lots and lots of blood and gore, the mouth breathers and knuckle draggers wouldn’t delve into such dangerous activities such as becoming politically aware or civilly active.

In 1919, a recently discharged Lance Corporal Adolf Hitler, late of the disbanded Imperial German Army was ordered by the newly formed Weimar Republic’s army, the Reichswehr (Reich Defence), to keep an eye on a small but potentially violent Munich group known as the Deutsche Arbeitpartei (German Workers’ Party, popularly known simply as DAP). As time went by, the same ex-soldier went on to join the DAP, and the DAP eventually became became the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers’ Party), better known to the Western world as the Nazis. In what may be a case of history repeating itself, the everything political magazine The Hill is reporting on Sept. 15, 2014 that the US Attorney General is announcing a new government program to train citizens to keep a sharp eye open for possible up and coming radicals.
