A warning from an Israelii

Juval Aviv was the Israeli Agent upon whom the movie ' Munich ' was based. He was Golda Meir's bodyguard -- she appointed him to track down and bring to justice the Palestinian terrorists who took the Israeli athletes hostage and killed them during the Munich Olympic Games.

In a lecture in New York City a few weeks ago, he shared information that EVERY American needs to know -- but that our government has not yet shared with us.

He predicted the London subway bombing on the Bill O'Reilly show on Fox News stating publicly that it would happen within a week. At the time, O'Reilly laughed and mocked him saying that in a week he wanted him back on the show. But, unfortunately, within a week the terrorist attack had occurred.

Juval Aviv gave intelligence (via what he had gathered in Israel and the Middle East ) to the Bush Administration about 9/11 a month before it occurred. His report specifically said they would use planes as bombs and target high profile buildings and monuments. Congress has since hired him as a security consultant.

Now for his future predictions. He predicts the next terrorist attack on the U.S. will occur within the next few months.

Forget hijacking airplanes, because he says terrorists will NEVER try and hijack a plane again as they know the people onboard will never go down quietly again. Aviv believes our airport security is a joke -- that we have been reactionary rather than proactive in developing strategies that are truly effective.

For example:

1) Our airport technology is outdated. We look for metal, and the new explosives are made of plastic.

2) He talked about how some idiot tried to light his shoe on fire. Because of that, now everyone has to take off their shoes. A group of idiots tried to bring aboard liquid explosives. Now we can't bring liquids on board. He says he's waiting for some suicidal maniac to pour liquid explosive on his underwear; at which point, security will have us all traveling naked! Every strategy we have is 'reactionary.'

3) We only focus on security when people are heading to the gates.

Aviv says that if a terrorist attack targets airports in the future, they will target busy times on the front end of the airport when/where people are checking in. It would be easy for someone to take two suitcases of explosives, walk up to a busy check-in line, ask a person next to them to watch their bags for a minute while they run to the restroom or get a drink, and then detonate the bags BEFORE security even gets involved. In Israel , security checks bags BEFORE people can even ENTER the airport.

Aviv says the next terrorist attack here in America is imminent and will involve suicide bombers and non-suicide bombers in places where large groups of people congregate. (i. e., Disneyland, Las Vegas casinos, big cities (New York, San Francisco, Chicago, etc.) and that it will also include shopping malls, subways in rush hour, train stations, etc., as well as rural America this time (Wyoming, Montana, etc.).

The attack will be characterized by simultaneous detonations around the country (terrorists like big impact), involving at least 5-8 cities, including rural areas.

Aviv says terrorists won't need to use suicide bombers in many of the larger cities, because at places like the MGM Grand in Las Vegas , they can simply valet park a car loaded with explosives and walk away.

Aviv says all of the above is well known in intelligence circles, but that our U. S. government does not want to 'alarm American citizens' with the facts.

The world is quickly going to become 'a different place', and issues like 'global warming' and political correctness will become totally irrelevant.

On an encouraging note, he says that Americans don't have to be concerned about being nuked. Aviv says the terrorists who want to destroy America will not use sophisticated weapons. They like to use suicide as a front-line approach. It's cheap, it's easy, it's effective; and they have an infinite abundance of young militants more than willing to 'meet their destiny'.

He also says the next level of terrorists, over which America should be most concerned, will not be coming from abroad. But will be, instead, 'homegrown' -- having attended and been educated in our own schools and universities right here in the U. S. He says to look for 'students' who frequently travel back and forth to the Middle East . These young terrorists will be most dangerous because they will know our language and will fully understand the habits of Americans; but that we Americans won't know/understand a thing about them.

Aviv says that, as a people, Americans are unaware and uneducated about the terroristic threats we will, inevitably, face. America still has only have a handful of Arabic and Farsi speaking people in our intelligence networks, and Aviv says it is critical that we change that fact SOON.

So, what can America do to protect itself?

From an intelligence perspective, Aviv says the U.S. needs to stop relying on satellites and technology for intelligence. We need to, instead, follow Israel 's, Ireland 's and England 's hands-on examples of human intelligence, both from an infiltration perspective as well as to trust 'aware' citizens to help. We need to engage and educate ourselves as citizens; however, our U. S. government continues to treat us, its citizens, 'like babies'. Our government thinks we 'can't handle the truth' and are concerned that we'll panic if we understand the realities of terrorism. Aviv says this is a deadly mistake.

Aviv recently created/executed a security test for our Congress, by placing an empty briefcase in five well-traveled spots in five major cities. The results? Not one person called 911 or sought a policeman to check it out. In fact, in Chicago , someone tried to steal the briefcase!

In comparison, Aviv says that citizens of Israel are so well 'trained' that an unattended bag or package would be reported in seconds by citizen(s) who know to publicly shout, 'Unattended Bag!' The area would be quickly & calmly cleared by the citizens themselves. But, unfortunately, America hasn't been yet 'hurt enough' by terrorism for their government to fully understand the need to educate its citizens or for the government to understand that it's their citizens who are, inevitably, the best first-line of defense against terrorism.

Aviv also was concerned about the high number of children here in America who were in preschool and kindergarten after 9/11, who were 'lost' without parents being able to pick them up, and about ours schools that had no plan in place to best care for the students until parents could get there. (In New York City , this was days, in some cases!)

He stresses the importance of having a plan, that's agreed upon within your family, to respond to in the event of a terroristic emergency. He urges parents to contact their children's schools and demand that the schools, too, develop plans of actions, as they do in Israel .

Does your family know what to do if you can't contact one another by phone? Where would you gather in an emergency? He says we should all have a plan that is easy enough for even our youngest children to remember and follow.

Aviv says that the U. S. government has in force a plan that, in the event of another terrorist attack, will immediately cut-off EVERYONE's ability to use cell phones, blackberries, etc., as this is the preferred communication source used by terrorists and is often the way that their bombs are detonated.

How will you communicate with your loved ones in the event you cannot speak? You need to have a plan.

Bailout the Bailout---A Prediction

Congress is rushing to spend $1 trillion more of our money on a stimulus package that is supposed to put folks to work and at the same time improve our infrastructure by building roads, repairing bridges, etc. The congressional budget office has already determined that such projects will have very little immediate effect on unemployment and Best View predicts another very likely consequence of this approach. The money will be voted out, projects will be designated for funding, and there will be no repeal of the Davis-Bacon act which stipulates that federal money must be spent on workers as if they were unionized. This will greatly reduce the number of new hires since the wages will be so high. Next, the projects which are chosen will, as they always do, go over budget and experience "unexpected" delays. This means that the time will come when the money is spent, the project is incomplete, and the sponsors will need to come to you for more billions to finish the jobs. This request for more money will come at a time when the economy has largely recovered and the massive increase in the money supply has triggered the inevitable inflation which occurs when too much cash is chasing too few goods. As a result, the added financing will simply exacerbate the inflation and our economic problems will be just as bad as now---only different.

Start buying gold now.

Good Question about Obama

From Reason

Will Obama's erudition and elegance finally eclipse the corrosive, often deadly scourge of hip-hop culture and the ghetto mentality that gnaw away like termites beneath black America's floorboards?

U.S. wising up on global warming nonsense

Forty-four percent (44%) of U.S. voters now say long-term planetary trends are the cause of global warming, compared to 41% who blame it on human activity.

Seven percent (7%) attribute global warming to some other reason, and nine percent (9%) are unsure in a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Democrats blame global warming on human activity, compared to 21% percent of Republicans. Two-thirds of GOP voters (67%) see long-term planetary trends as the cause versus 23% of Democrats. Voters not affiliated with either party by eight points put the blame on planetary trends.

In July 2006, 46% of voters said global warming is caused primarily by human activities, while 35% said it is due to long-term planetary trends.

Good News from Obama's War

Missiles fired from a suspected U.S. spy plane killed seven people Friday on the Pakistan side of the Afghan border, a lawless region where al-Qaida militants are known to hide out, officials said.

The strike was the first on Pakistani territory since the inauguration of President Barrack Obama.

Wednesday, January 14, 2009


Timothy Geithner, President-elect Barack Obama's pick to head the Treasury Department, after public revelations he failed to pay $34,000 in taxes several years ago, joins Charlie Rangle, the Chairman of the Ways and Means committee in the House of Representatives with tax problems. So, the man in charge of writing tax laws and the man heading the agency with the IRS (enforcing our tax laws) find our laws too difficult to obey. That will be no excuse if you are caught, however.

Times Change

Nortel Networks filed for bankruptcy today and the stock which was at $0.31/share yesterday is essentially worthless today. In 2000, this stock was selling for $900/share.

No Surprise Here

President-elect Barack Obama’s no-earmark mandate for the stimulus package has leading Democrats scrambling to find subtler ways to direct funding to their districts.

They may not be called earmarks, but lawmakers are looking to write legislative formulas into the package to ensure that their districts share in the wealth and won’t simply be at the mercy of Washington’s bureaucracy or the nation’s governors.

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) is leading the effort, personally lobbying Obama, top Obama adviser David Axelrod and committee chairmen on the issue last week. Clyburn said numerous Members, particularly freshmen, are concerned that they could sign on to a massive package with nothing to show for their districts.

Clyburn said the package can be written in such a way that governors have relatively little control over the money, and the funds can flow directly to local communities.

“The pro or con on earmarks I think missed the point,” Clyburn said. “Members are very concerned about going out in their Congressional districts and trying to get elected. ... They want to be sure their votes will respond to their constituents.”

“If you’re going to go out to take the flak to significantly expand the deficit and the debt, you’ve got to be able to say ... ‘This is what happened in our community.’”

Free enterprise government style

Let's peek at what the government just did with the bailout of the automobile companies operating out of Detroit. GM and Chrysler wanted money and Ford said it didn't need any. So, we gave billions to GMAC, the finance arm of GM and they promptly used the money to finance the purchase of GM's cars at zero interest rates which, of course, put them at a competitive advantage vis a vis Ford and Chrysler. This idiocy, by the way, is a farewell present from Bush.

Climate Change

There is a definite shift in the way the loony left and other brain-washed victims of our failed school system talk about the way in which man has impacted the earth. Not long ago the word from Al Gore and his ilk held that man was causing the global warming that will doom us all with floods, hunger and all manner of devastating calamities. Furthermore the "science was in" and nobody but right wing fools could dispute it. Well, now it has become clear that for the past ten years the globe has gotten cooler so the new concern is not global warming, but"climate change" brought on by man's activities. Now the socialists who want us to cripple our economy based on a hoax must explain how previous climate changes were affected by man and when in the history of earth there was not "climate change".

Christmas will continue in Congress

Watch the upcoming stimulus bill being rushed through Congress which will obligate about 1 trillion of your kids money to our growing debt load. It will be larded with all manner of ridiculous items by the politicians constructing this Christmas tree of spending items. There will be all manner of grim warnings about how important it is to pass this quickly, but the real factor behind the call for speedy passage will be the liberals desire to keep us from learning what is in there.

About Time

There is at least some indication that Israel might at last be willing to actually enter a battle with an intention to win or at least achieve some semblance of reaching an objective before cease fires are imposed internally or from external pressures. About time.

Happy New Year in Congress

This year promises to be just delightful as we watch the dems exercise their large majoritity powers. The first act in this play is the seating of Roland Burris as the replacement for Barrack. The governor of Illinois has the full backing of the state's laws to appoint a successor and as far as anyone can tell, Mr. Burris is just as qualified to be a senator as Chris Dodd, for example, who took sweetheart mortgage deals from Country Wide while serving as Chairman of the Banking Committee. However, the dems painted themselves into this corner because they didn't want to risk an election that the Republicans might win--even though they all called for one after Blagojevich was accused of corruption. Senator Reid, who is a complete idiot, doesn't want to seat Burris, but there is only one way to legally proceed and that is to seat him and then expel the only black in the senate. That would really be fun. The law as expressed in the nation's constitution does not allow Senator Reid to block his legal acceptance of the seat. The only crime Burris is guilty of is accepting a legal appointment to serve his country. This should be fun and we can expect many more examples of dem problems with near monopoly power in Congress.
