After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.

We Don't Know Much About This Shooting Yet, But ...

I think the following five paragraphs may tell us almost everything we need to know ....
Lanza is believed to have suffered from a personality disorder and lived with his mother, said a law enforcement official who was briefed on the investigation.
A law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity said investigators believe Lanza attended the school several years ago but appeared to have no recent connection to it. 
At least one parent said Lanza's mother was a substitute teacher there. But her name did not appear on a staff list. And the official said investigators were unable to establish any connection so far between her and the school. 
Lanza's older brother, 24-year-old Ryan Lanza, of Hoboken, N.J., was questioned, but a law enforcement official said he was not believed to have had a role in the rampage. 
Investigators were searching his computers and phone records, but he told law enforcement he had not been in touch with his brother since about 2010.
... and that is that we will never know much about what happened, why it happened, or what was going on in Adam Lanza's "mind". 

Note that the brother has apparently not seen his brother in almost three years. The brother lives with the mother. We can infer from this that the brother has not seem much of his mother in almost three years either. The father does not live with the mother. The father lives elsewhere. 

The mother has apparently sacrificed her life to deal with her Autistic son. It may be that this family has been torn apart by the fact of Adam Lanza's Autism, and his mother's willingness to sacrifice everything to help him.

People who have Autism do not have a mind that functions in the same way as the minds of other people do.

Autistic people do not have normal human reactions to things. Sometimes they have almost no emotional attachment to others at all. Or if they do, they do not know how to express it.

They also tend to get very upset by obscure things that only their brain can put together or take apart.

In other words, they don't communicate what is in their head well enough for others to understand.

There is little help for such people. Not many children with autism live independently after reaching adulthood, though some become "successful" in the things their brains allow them to do.

I understand there are people who do music therapy and other types of therapy that are designed to help Autistic people out of their shell, to help them express themselves. But, it is also my understanding, and perhaps I am wrong, that Autistic people often do not ever really truly come out of their "shell".

I wonder whether it is a shell at all, or if perhaps, that is just them.

Always on Watch knows a lot more about Autism than I do. If she has anything to add to this post, or if she thinks I am wrong in anything I say here, I hope she will add to this post and help us understand what may have happened, and why it may have happened.

More on The TIME HAS COME....

1) The problem is that the govt is UNFIT to decide on screening.

2) LOCAL BOARDS OF EDUC DO NOT HAVE TO BE ..but remember I speak from a town of 2000 people, and if people are pissed off, they call the supervisors, the board of educ, and town mgr and treasurers ON THEIR CELL PHONES.

3) We cannot do nothing, unless doing something creates more harm, and that's a hard one to argue. With three incidents in a year, there is cause to seriously wonder WHAT PROCESS IS GOING ON? Debate on this is now, IMHO, compulsory.

4) Acquiring guns ... what local laws exist for securing weapons? Of what use is a locked cabinet if the key is available when the owner is murdered by a deranged sicko? Do we need hand print locks? Or would this only instigate the perp to cutoff the hand of the first victim? A discussion on why owning semi auto version of the M-4 is Constitutional IS COMING. There is only one answer to that, and it's because it's a defense by the citizens FROM THE GOVT. Will that sell? ASK YOURSELVES. I am asking as an OBSERVER.
There is also no argument that one armed and trained adult SOMEWHERE in that school could have saved lives. We have Marshalls on flights for a reason.

5) We need to be asking ourselves about SOLUTIONS. The time has come to ask ourselves to COME UP WITH A PLAN TO SOLVE, TO BEGIN TO SOLVE. To do the research to solve. TO think of various ways we can OBJECTIVELY measure this tendency.

For instance,....the answer may NOT be a psychological one, but a brain chemistry, brain structure and brain genetic one. Anyone looked? How? When?

One of my early jobs was selling Brain Mapping Equipment. One of the tests done with this equipment was called a P300 test. Visual and or aural stimuli were given and then the brain generates an involuntary response 300 ms later. KGB used this, BTW. I participated in providing and aiding in the technical use of this equip at an upstate NY prison where multiple to mass murderers were kept. And I can TELL YOU their P300's were not the same as the general population.

Meaningful? Maybe. But in what way? That is an anecdote not research.

We cannot do nothing, and it is our PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY as Americans not to demand a solution but to pro actively LOOK and THINK and then ask WHY ISN'T THIS BEING DONE? WHY ISN'T THAT BEING DONE? If the answer is, 'well that won't work' then we have to keep thinking until we find the answer.

This is the most important component of the solution. An OBJECTIVE means of identification as reliable as the gene marker for the aggressive and fatal breast cancer, or family history and blood and stress testing for cardiovascular disease. An answer as effective as Lipitor and Plavix. And by the way... the laws today in several states support the court enforcing medications being administered forcibly if the individual will not cooperate. This being done as a result of psychologists is not really acceptable, but an OBJECTIVE TEST?

No armed guards will solve a sicko shooting the guard first and then killing kids.
No locked door can keep out an armed (with explosives, even home made) from gaining entrance and acting before the cops arrive.
No panic room in every classroom will avert the tragedy of the first causalities.

We can't just shrug our shoulders and think, 'oh well, Newtown got hit by lightning'

3 incidents in a year is meaningful.
If we had 3 Ebola outbreak in a year would we all be wondering WTF?
What's the difference?
Maybe nothing can be done, but if this is the answer it had better be the result of an exhaustive, leave no idea untested process that took decades to delineate

In The Wake Of The Vile Murders In Connecticut

The cries for banning handguns are loud now. Deafening.

But there is another issue of equal importance -- perhaps of more importance.

Getting "help" for someone who is obviously mentally disturbed is well nigh impossible if the mentally-disturbed person refuses to cooperate.

Several in my family tried to get help for their children -- in these instances, the problem being drug abuse. These children were no older than 15. They resisted help and successfully resisted help -- legally, apparently.

Getting "help" for someone age 18 and over is impossible! Even if another adult holds POA and an advance medical directive.

The mentally ill and others needing "help" typically resist any such measures.

The ugly fact about sociopathy: there is no such thing as successful treatment. Confinement for life is the only "treatment."

For additional information along the lines of some of my thoughts above, please see Liberal Policies Are to Blame for Today’s Mass Shooting in Newtown, CT at Gateway Pundit.

Anti-Gun Fanatic Michael Bloomberg Attacks Obama For Saying We Need To Take “Meaningful Action” – Tells Him We Need “Immediate Executive Action”

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg isn’t satisfied with President Obama’s promise Friday to take “meaningful action” to prevent future mass shootings. 
“[T]he country needs him to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem – and take immediate executive action,” he said in a statement in his capacity as co-chair of Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

From Avi at The Astute Bloggers:

Gatestone Institute finds some good news in Germany, but also bad news concerning what the Turks who live there think:
Germans are overwhelmingly mistrustful of Islam and Muslim immigration, according to a new research survey, which concludes that the image of Islam in Germany is "devastating."

The findings -- which corroborate the conclusions of other recent studies -- show a growing divide between ordinary Germans, who are concerned about the consequences of mass immigration from Muslim countries, and Germany's political elites, who are determined to build a "multicultural" society at any cost.

The 28-page study, "Fear of the East in the West" [Die Furcht vor dem Morgenland im Abendland], was produced by the Allensbach Institute for Public Opinion Research, and was published by the center-right German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung on November 21.

Those who participated in the survey were asked to choose which of 21 statements about Islam most closely reflect their own views.

The research shows that more than half of the German population believes that Islam is prone to violence (64%); has a tendency toward revenge and retaliation (60%); is obsessed with proselytizing others (56%); and strives for political influence (56%).

More than 80% of Germans believe that Islam deprives women of their rights, and 70% say Islam is associated with religious fanaticism and radicalism
As for Muslims in Germany:
The 103-page study, "German-Turkish Life and Values" (abridged version in German here), was jointly produced by the Berlin-based INFO polling institute and the Antalya, Turkey-based Liljeberg research firm, and was released to the general public in August 2012.

The study found that Islam is becoming an increasingly important component of the value structure of Turks in Germany, especially among the younger generation of Turkish-Germans, who hold religious views that are more radical than those held by their parents.

Almost all Turks surveyed (95%) said it is absolutely necessary for them to preserve their Turkish identity, and 62% said they would rather be around Turks than around Germans. Only 39% of Turks said that Germans are trustworthy.

At the same time, 87% of those surveyed said they believe that German society should make a greater effort to be considerate of the customs and traditions of Turkish immigrants.

Of those Turks surveyed, 72% believe that Islam is the only true religion; 18% say Jews are inferior people and 10% say Christians are inferior. Most Turks (55%) believe that Germany should build more mosques.

Arguably the most sobering finding of the study is that 46% of Turks say they hope that Germany will one day have more Muslims than Christians.
It's still too high a number. But at least there's some good omens here, that Germans are beginning to wake up and recognize that the religion the nazis once collaborated with when Haj-Amin el-Husseini was the Mufti is something that's very dangerous to them as well as to Jews.

The Time Has Come

It’s time for us to undertake whatever course is necessary to somehow screen for aberrant and psychotic behaviors which make it possible for individuals to accept that walking around with a plan and the means to create slaughter is somehow a path which can achieve anything.
It’s time for us to have, since professional security is impossibly expensive at almost all schools, vetted and screened volunteers FROM THE LOCAL TOWNS, to provide active security.
It’s time for us to admit when these idiots can get guns, getting guns is too easy, and the process NEEDS REFINEMENT.
It’s time for us all to admit that when this happens if ONE PERSON, THE RIGHT PEOPLE ARE ARMED and TRAINED, this cannot happen to this extent, and maybe not at all.
It’s time to do whatever research is necessary to find the process which can scientifically identify these people.
It’s time.

Evil falls suddenly. Who can say when it falls?

I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race [is] not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so [are] the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.

Pakistan #1: "Donkey Sex" "Horse Sex" "Dog Sex"

From Jawa Report (lifted the whole thing, cuz I could not have said it any better.)

Does old news get less funny over time? No it does not.

It starts out funny: Pakistanis spend more time searching for "donkey sex", "horse sex", "dog sex", and "animal sex" than any other country.


Then it quickly becomes .... um .... less funny: they're also the world's #1 source for searches for "rape pictures" "rape sex" & "child sex".

That's pretty f*cked up right there.

CAIR Launches “My Jihad” PR Campaign To Dispel Notion Jihad Means Violent Warfare

Note that they're not disavowing or condemning violent Jihad. They are simply saying, violent Jihad is "not the entirety of the story."
An Islamic-advocacy group linked to terrorism is launching a public-relations campaign to argue that jihad doesn’t mean Islamic holy war, but instead a “concerted effort … with the purpose of getting to a better place.” 
However, the campaign, which is being launched Dec. 14 by an affiliate of the Council on American Islamic Relations, isn’t a formal religious declaration by United States or Arab Islamic authorities, and it does clash with orthodox judgments dating back 1,400 years to the beginning of Islam. 
“It is [public] education about what we believe,” said Ahmed Rehab, who serves as the founder of the project, head of CAIR’s Chicago affiliate and CAIR’s strategic communications chief. 
The views of jihad groups, Salafi activists in Egypt and of the Arab world’s leading preacher, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, “are not the entirety of the story,” Rehab told The Daily Caller on Thursday. 
Those orthodox views of jihad as warfare to spread Islam are being championed by a new wave of Islamic revivalists — including numerous jihadi groups, such as the “Jamaat al-Tawhid wa’l-Jihad” terror group in the Gaza strip. [...] 
In contrast, Rehab’s “MyJihad” public-relations campaign portrays jihad as “a concerted and noble effort against injustice, hate, misunderstanding, war, violence, poverty, hunger, abuse or whatever challenge big or small we face in daily life, with the purpose of getting to a better place,” according to the campaign’s website, MyJihad.org.

Obama's Policies Are All About Destroying The System

His Fiscal Cliff "negotiations", wherein he tells everyone to accept his way or else. His way is spend, spend, spend, tax the rich (business owners), slowing up the economy even more, and gradually destroying any last vestige of Capitalist productivity.

To be replaced by ...

... a Socialist government who will take care of everything for everyone. You know, like the Soviet Union, Venezuela, Cuba, etc.

Another part of this strategy is destroying Healthcare.

If you thought Obamacare was about making sure that everyone gets healthcare whether they can afford it or not, think again:

The Left And Labor Unions

From this opinion piece at Reuters:
Unions stand at the core of the Democratic coalition today. They are the last organizations remaining on the liberal side that can effectively appeal to white, working-class men in the Rust Belt swing states. They were crucial to President Barack Obama’s victory there.


Can the liberalism mobilized by Obama’s re-election sustain itself in the absence of a vibrant union movement? The history of this nation and that of virtually every other Western democracy argues to the contrary.

New Report Confirms World’s “Most Prolific Religious Terrorist Groups Are Almost Exclusively Islamic”

From IPT:
While partisans try to diminish the role radical Islam plays in fueling global terrorism, a new report released by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) finds that “The most prolific religious terrorist groups are almost exclusively Islamic.” 
The IEP’s 2012 Global Terrorism Index rates 158 countries related to terrorism from 2001-11 using data from the Global Terrorism Database (GTD), which is collected and collated by the University of Maryland’s National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START). 
START is directly affiliated with the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
“The rise of religious extremism is well-documented,” the report says, with Islamic groups being the most prolific. It notes a decrease in attacks from nationalist/separatist groups since 2008, but adds that some Islamist groups like “the Taliban or Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) have nationalist/ separatist aspirations.” 
The nationalist characteristics of such Islamic terror groups do not, however, negate their violent Islamist nature. 
For such Islamist/nationalist groups, “‘True’ Islam only exists when it is the primary source of governance, manifest today by the implementation of a fundamentalist interpretation of Islamic law,” the report says. “It supersedes tribe, or nationality today, it is to be defended everywhere it exists, and when it exists it is an ascendant force. 
According to this logic, in the current moment of extended crisis Muslims are duty-bound to follow the example of the Prophet and emigrate from places of persecution to a place where they can fight on behalf of ‘true’ Islam. If they cannot make that journey, they are to fight where they live.” 
The report ranks 158 countries by the terrorist violence it suffered, both the raw number of attacks and the resulting casualties. The top 5 are Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India and Yemen. 

Islamists, Leftists Responsible For Most World Terror

From Jawa (click on the title to read the whole thing.

Here's the 2012 Global Terrorist Index. And a little chart that I think just about sums it all up.
Right-wing terror would be included in the "other" category. The inference from these data being that although it is a problem, it is miniscule compared to the twin problems of violent Islamism and Marxism.

I find it unusual, to say the least, that the Associated Press is reporting on these new rules in such a negative way, characterizing them as potentially crippling to the economy.

Why is this? Why the sudden change in Spin?

From Associated Press:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- While the "fiscal cliff" of looming tax increases and spending cuts dominates political conversation in Washington, some Republicans and business groups see signs of a "regulatory cliff" that they say could be just as damaging to the economy. 
For months, federal agencies and the White House have sidetracked dozens of major regulations that cover everything from power plant pollution to workplace safety to a crackdown on Wall Street. 
The rules had been largely put on hold during the presidential campaign as the White House sought to quiet Republican charges that President Barack Obama was an overzealous regulator who is killing U.S. jobs. 
But since the election, the Obama administration has quietly reopened the regulations pipeline. 
In recent weeks, the Environmental Protection Agency has proposed rules to update water quality guidelines for beaches and other recreational waters and deal with runoff from logging roads. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, meanwhile, has proposed long-delayed regulations requiring auto makers to include event data recorders - better known as "black boxes" - in all new cars and light trucks beginning in 2014. 
The administration also has initiated several rules to implement its health care overhaul, including a new fee to cushion the cost of covering people with pre-existing conditions.Some GOP lawmakers fear the worst. 
Obama has spent the past year "punting" on a slew of job-killing regulations that will be unleashed in a second term, said Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla. With the election over, it's now "full speed ahead" for federal rules limiting greenhouse gas emissions, requiring cleaner gasoline and putting controls on drilling for oil and natural gas, said Inhofe, the senior Republican on the Senate Environment Committee.

U.N. Conference Slyly Introduces Resolution to Gain Control of Internet—in Middle of Night

From the Weekly Standard:

In the middle of the night at a U.N. conference in Dubai, the presiding chairman of the International Telecommunication Union conference surveyed the assembled countries to see whether there was interest in having greater involvement in the U.N. governing the Internet. A majority of countries gave their approval.
United Nations ZP.svg .png
With a sufficient majority supporting the U.N. becoming more active in controlling the Internet, the chairman put forth a resolution. The chairman, though, insisted the survey "was not a vote."
The resolution was supported by Cuba, Algeria, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia; the United States opposed it.
The proposed resolution resolves that the secretary general of the U.N. "continue to take the necessary steps for ITU to play an active and constructive role in the multi-stakeholder model of the Internet," according to a draft of the text. 
"While it is our understanding that the resolutions made at the WCIT are non-binding, the Secretary-General might treat them as binding, which effectively creates a dangerous mandate for the ITU to continue to hold discussions about internet policy into the future," accessnow.org writes, responding to this proposed text.

"This is just the first round of a battle that’s going to divide this state. We’re going to have a civil war”

Jimmy Hoffa, unwilling to accept the result of the voting of the people of Michigan in the person of their elected representatives.
So, what should those who have a hard time swallowing the results of the Nov 2012 election be saying?
‘Fuck you, 51.5%, we’re going to shed blood until we get what we think is right’?
If that is not said, aren’t those who KNOW the path Obama is on fiscally, and constitutionally is ruination for the USA, just a bunch of naive Kerenskys?
I don’t favor such a path, but increasingly, as each comment by these self righteous ass holes accumulates and ramps the total incitement quotient, we may have a damn breaking when violence DOES OCCUR.
So Hoffa, Geiss, I remind you of what happened to Aryan Nation, and those in Aryan Nation who incited and violence resulted. In 2000, a car backfire resulted in a woman and her children being dragged from their car and beaten, and then a jury awarded 6.3 million to them and out of the pockets of Aryan Nation and those who had opened their bloody minded yappers.
Would it only take a ‘79 Chevy, with an old in line 6, to set off a civil war in America?


The retail industry is still counting the receipts from “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday.” However,Time Magazine is reportingthat total sales figures from brick and mortar stores was anemic.
The retail research firm ShopperTrak estimates that shoppers spent $11.2 billion at physical stores on Black Friday. That represents a 1.8% decline from Black Friday 2011.
That decline was not seen in one very specific area of the retail business, gun sales. According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), gun sales — based on Black Friday background checks — set a new record, jumping by 20%. The surge in gun sales was so great that many retailers reported extended wait times in order to get applications processed by the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
A new single-day record for point-of-sale background checks was established on Black Friday, November 23, when 154,873 were conducted by the FBI.

Once the first political blood is shed, all bets will be off, and the fault will be with AMERICAN LEADERSHIP

Did Obama just make the first step to abolish Jerusalem as Israeli capital?

From Will at THE OTHER NEWS:

Did Obama just make the first step to abolish Jerusalem as Israeli capital? (Examiner).
Tensions over Jerusalem increase as Obama cuts funding under 1995 Embassy Act. 
On Dec 4, President Obama signed a new Memorandum suspending funds for embassy use and maintenance under the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. This memorandum, tied to the U.S. embassy in Israel moving from Tel Aviv, and for the recognition of Jerusalem as an Israeli capital, comes days after the United Nations vote to recognize Palestine as a observer nation. Additionally, these actions by the President come less than a week after Palestinian President Abbas declared that Jerusalem was now and forever the capital of a Palestinian state. “ Presidential Memorandum -- Presidential Determination with respect to the Suspension of Limitations under the Jerusalem Embassy Act.


SUBJECT: Suspension of Limitations under the Jerusalem Embassy Act
Pursuant to the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including section 7(a) of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 (Public Law 104-45)(the "Act"), I hereby determine that it is necessary, in order to protect the national security interests of the United States, to suspend for a period of 6 months the limitations set forth in sections 3(b) and 7(b) of the Act.
You are authorized and directed to transmit this determination to the Congress, accompanied by a report in accordance with section 7(a) of the Act, and to publish the determination in the Federal Register. - Whitehouse.gov.

Besides the funding and maintenance of an embassy in the city of Jerusalem, the 1995 Congressional Act also called for the U.S. to recognize Jerusalem solely as the undivided capital of Israel. The suspension of this recognition could eventually increase diplomatic tensions between Palestine, Israel, and the United States, and place the city of Jerusalem in a precarious state for the Jewish nation.
Sections 3(b) in the Dec. 4 Memorandum refer to a suspension of funding tied to the Jerusalem embassy, and section 7(a) gives the President the authority to suspend said funding, and is being invoked under the belief of a potential threat to national security.
“ Sec. 3. Timetable.

(a) Statement of the Policy of the United States.—

(1) Jerusalem should remain an undivided city in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are protected.

(2) Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel; and

(3) the United States Embassy in Israel should be established in Jerusalem no later than May 31, 1999.
(b) Opening Determination.—

Not more than 50 percent of the funds appropriated to the Department of State for fiscal year 1999 for ‘‘Acquisition and Maintenance of Buildings Abroad’’ may be obligated until the Secretary of State determines and reports to Congress that the United States Embassy In Jerusalem has officially opened. - Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995
As tensions increase between Palestine and Israel over who has authority over Jerusalem, the potential of a conflict affecting the national security of the United States, and our assets in the region increase accordingly. In response, President Obama has now chosen to invoke a suspension of allocated funding dedicated to the embassy in Jerusalem, which also carries the potential of suspending the recognition of Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel.

Washington DC Imam: America Conducting “Global War On Islam,” Laments “Zionist-Controlled Media”

From PressTV:
Press TV has conducted an interview with Abdul Alim Musa, Imam of Masjid al-Islam in Washington, to further discuss the issue. The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.Press TV: Iran’s leader says the US will do everything it can to stop Muslim groups. Given the fact that the US has heavily been investing in anti-Islam activities, be it films, be it anything, what is the future going to be like for Muslims?
Musa: What is the future for Muslims like here in the US and all around the world, first of all, the Rahbar [Leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei] was right that this war on terror, we all know, is clearly a war on Islam and it is not a regional war; it is a global war.
The US and the UK who are losing their global power do not have power to do good in the world today. They only have power to do negative or evil. So therefore whether it is encouraging what we call are trying a lot of terror that is the American government when it is an invasion, when it is media; it is the Zionist-controlled media; when they want us to fight amongst themselves, they use Saudi Arabia.
For instance, many of the illegal troops who are going into Syria to kill innocent people and to destroy the whole country, they are there at the behest of Saudi Arabian wealth and position.
While inside the country in Qatif and while Bahrain is suffering, they have no words of freedom and justice. So this war on terror is really as we know a war on Islam. [...]
There is another issue. The Muslims themselves are very fearful right now. They have been frightened by this global war on Muslims, infiltration of the masajid [mosques], turning the Imam or the Imam Juma [Friday prayers] into a FBI collaborator which they cooperate with the FBI. This is happening a lot.

Group Says It Plans To Continue Cyber Attacks On U.S. Banks Until Mohammed Film Removed From YouTube

From Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: 

A protest group that claimed responsibility for a wave of digital attacks on big U.S. banks in the fall — including Pittsburgh-based PNC Bank — apparently has PNC in its crosshairs again.
The al-Qassam Cyber Fighters said in an Internet posting that the group plans a second round of attacks this week on PNC and four other banks — JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, U.S. Bank and SunTrust.
A spokeswoman for PNC was not immediately available for comment.
In September, PNC’s online banking operations were disrupted for a couple of days by the so-called denial of service attacks, which flood websites with communications requests.
In the latest phase, “the wideness and the number of attacks will increase explicitly,” the protest group said in a message posted on a website called Pastebin.
The group has said the attacks would continue until a YouTube video insulting the Islamic prophet Muhammad was removed from the Internet.

New Army Manual Orders U.S. Soldiers In Afghanistan Not To Criticize The Taliban, Islam, Pedophilia

Here is a strong indicator that the Obama Administration’s crusade to appease Islam has gone too far; a new U.S. military handbook for troops deployed to the Middle East orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia, among other outrageous things.
It gets better; the new manual, which is around 75 pages, suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture— not Taliban infiltration—is responsible for the increase in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces.
The soon-to-be-released Army handbook is still being drafted, but a mainstream newspaper got a sneak preview and published an article that should infuriate the American taxpayers funding the never-ending war on terror. The manual is being created because someone with authority bought the theory that cultural insensitivity is driving insider attacks on U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
More than three dozen insider attacks have killed 63 members of the U.S.-led coalition this year, according to the article, and some blame “American cultural ignorance.”
The bottom line is that troops may experience social-cultural shock and/or discomfort when interacting with Afghan security forces, the new military handbook says. “Better situational awareness/understanding of Afghan culture will help better prepare [troops] to more effectively partner and to avoid cultural conflict that can lead toward green-on-blue violence.”
The draft leaked to the newspaper offers a list of “taboo conversation topics” that soldiers should avoid, including “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”

‘British whites’ are the minority in London for the first time as census shows number of UK immigrants has jumped by 3million in 10 years

Mail Online:

  • Just 44.9% of Londoners are White British, according to census data
  • 7.5million residents of England and Wales were foreign-born in 2011
  • Census data reveal just 59% now call themselves Christian as a quarter say they have no religion and 5% are Muslim
  • Less than 90% of country is white for the first time ever
  • Home ownership declines but more people have paid off their mortgages
  • Marriage rate dips to record low as fewer than half are hitched
White British people are now in a minority in London for the first time, it emerged today as census data revealed that the immigrant population of England and Wales went up by 3million over the past decade.
Just 3.7million Londoners described their ethnicity as ‘White British’ in 2011 – down from 4.3million in 2001, and making up 44.9 per cent of the city’s population.
It is believed to be the first time that British whites have become a minority in any region of the UK.
Another major change to the nation came in the decreasing number of Christians – 4million fewer people claimed to belong to the faith as a quarter of Britons said they had no religion.

Bradford’s Muslim Population Explosion

In an article written in July after the release of the initial raw headline results from the 2011 Census, I noted how the largest population increases in the country appeared to take place in the boroughs possessing the largest Muslim populations, and today’s release of census results relating to religion appear to confirm this supposition. In July I noted that Tower Hamlets and Newham were recorded as displaying the greatest population increase between 2001 and 2011, and today’s results state that Tower Hamlets has the highest share of Muslims in the country, and Newham the second, with the percentages standing at respectively 34.5% and 32.0%.
