March 26, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - South Korean news agency Yonhap is reporting details of a major naval clash between North and South Korea. [see, http://www1.voanews.com/english/news/asia/South-Korean-Ship-Sinks-North-Suspected-89273647.html]
The incident took place at approximately 9:30 am local time, the 1,500 ton South Korean vessel [possible a guided missile frigate] was sunk, possibly due to a torpedo strike, the assumed origin being a North Korean naval warship.
Tensions in the Yellow Sea area where the suspected attack took place have been heightened recently due to North Korean anger over joint U.S.-South Korean naval exercises.

March 25, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - A visit to LA Cardinal Roger Mahony's blog [see, http://cardinalrogermahonyblogsla.blogspot.com] should be a startling revelation for a traditional Catholic, or American for that matter. Unfortunately what should be surprising isn't - not by a long shot. Given the rapid and downward turn of events since Obama's bait-and-switch electoral victory 16 months ago, nothing in the way of iconoclastic change should startle thoughtful observers. Yet despite this fact, the dawn of every day brings with it such unprecedented breaks with the past that one might feel in need of a road map to determine at what juncture the wrong turn was made.
That point being beyond the intent of this writing, allow us to consider Cardinal Mahony's political blogging which contains this post from March 21:
In the space of less than 100 words the Cardinal tosses overboard in a mind-bendingly cavalier manner, the single most important tenet underlying Judaism, Christianity and Western Civilization, that being the idea of free choice.
Allow me to explain...briefly...
Saint Thomas Aquinas, perhaps the Church's most brilliant intellectual - and other theologians, have written extensively on the subject, often referring to Deuteronomy 30:19 or similar texts, "...I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before thee life and death, the blessing and the curse: therefore choose life, that thou mayest live, thou and thy seed..." [American Standard translation]
The power of this line of thought is revelatory and undeniable; unless man is created free to choose both rightly and wrongly, he can't be held morally responsible for his actions.
This is the kernel upon which the Western experience has been built, reflective of a continuous striving to maximize conditions so that the exercise of this freedom is unfettered, set against the similarly Biblically derived admonition that one must choose rightly.
March 24, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - With Switzerland apparently having lost the coin toss, DOJ today announced that it is sending two GITMO Uighur detainees to the idylic, traditionally neutral country.
The Uighurs - Chinese nationals, apprehended on the Afghan battlefield - will apparently be residing in the Swiss Canton of Jura thanks to team Obama.
The history of terror recidivism among released GITMO detainees does not bode well for this latest effort at repatriation. As Bill Rogio notes in Long War Journal, "a former Guantanamo detainee transferred from the detention facility to Afghanistan on Dec. 19, 2009, has already returned to the Taliban's ranks, according to multiple intelligence officials contacted by the Long War Journal. The former detainee was identified in documents produced at Guantanamo as Abdul Hafiz (as well as an alternative name, Abdul Qawi) and given an internment serial number of 1030. During the more than six years he was held at Guantanamo, Hafiz was repeatedly identified as "a suspect in the murder of an International Red Cross worker in Afghanistan." Memos produced at Guantanamo also alleged that Hafiz participated in the jihad against the Soviets, ran madrassas and recruited young men to fight for the Taliban, was "responsible for maintaining contacts with Mullah Mohammed Omar," and fought in a 40-man militia comprised of fighters from the Taliban and Gulbuddin Hekmatyar's insurgency group..." [source, Former Gitmo detainee targeting Afghan charities]
In a recent statement John Brennan, Obama's chief counterterrorism advisor, said that about 20% of released GITMO detainees return to active jihad, noting parenthetically that figure "wasn't that bad," compared to the recidivism rate among domestic U.S. prisoners - none of whom - we must highlight - were engaged in Islamic jihad against America.
March 24, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Reports that the Saudi Kingdom has just initiated a major anti-terror effort in the country have been streaming out of the Middle East for hours now.
The target appears to be AQP [al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, a subsidiary of bin-Laden's organization led by one of his former commanders, but not necessarily controlled by him or his command structure] which was thought to be plotting a series of attacks against the Saudi oil infrastructure - "Saudi Arabia said Wednesday its security forces had arrested 113 militants with ties to Al Qaeda who had been planning attacks against oil operations and security facilities in the eastern part of the kingdom." [source, New York Times, http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/25/world/middleeast/25saudi.html]
The terror threat within the kingdom has been increasing recently, marked by events such as the attempted assassination by a suicide bomber of national security official Prince Mohammed bin-Naif in his home last summer.
According to the Saudi Defense Agency, nearly half of those being detained are Yemenis, a reminder of the danger posed by Saudi's porous southern border.
March 23, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Mohamedou Ould Slahi, a GITMO detainee, is believed to have been integral to the 9/11 terror attacks, working closely with Mohammed Atta in Germany.
On Monday a Clinton judge, James Robertson - DC District - granted Slahi a petition for habeas corpus, clearing the way for freeing him.
Slahi has been described as being the detainee of most value at GITMO, deeply knowledgeable in the details of al-Qaeda terror methods.
The ruling was classified and is not available to the public.
Slahi was known to European intelligence for years before the events of September 11 to be a significant player in the Islamic terror network:

March 23, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Last week's rally of patriots outside of the 11th district office of Jerry McNerney [D-CA] was impressive...the counter rally was quite small by comparison. At first, it seemed to be the other way around, with supporters of the embattled Congressman showing up early, but as time went on more and more Tea Party people showed up, finally demonstrating an at least 3-1 advantage.
Right on schedule at 5pm the protesters marched to the nearby highway 580 overpass leaving the Obama/McNerney supporters behind and a bit bewildered as to what was happening, finding themselves alone in front of the Congressman's office.
The protest crowd stretched out for hundreds of yards, dwarfing the opposition. Local law enforcement and the California Highway Patrol blocked off some freeway exits, allowing the march to proceed in a safer manner - kudos to our Thin Blue Line
The crowd then split into two groups on opposite sides of the freeway, with the Obama supporters trailing behind, seemingly confused as to what to do, lending a comical aside to the event. In short order the fair weather supporters marched off to home with theTea Partiers waving them farewell.
Local media including KTVU and the CBS affiliate moved among the crowd shooting video and conducting interviews.
The Tea Party protesters carried numerous American flags along with large banners that could be read from the freeway below. Judging by the responsive honking by passing autos, there seemed to be a lot of affinity with the protest among the commute traffic.
With the onset of the Obamacare sleight-of-hand healthcare "debate" Jerry McNerney has refused to confront critical constituents face to face. His office's response today was more of the same.

CAMILLE GIGLIO, Legislative Analyst
March 23, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - There is a 30 day waiting period between the end date for filing new bills and having those bills show up in committees. That waiting period is about to expire. Also, very likely little activity has been occurring on legislation, especially health and education bills, until the Obama Care bill is signed. So, beginning this week or next bills may be starting to move.
In the meantime here are two bills to carefully watch.
AB 1542, Medical Records: Homes - This bill is authored by the Assembly Health Committee. It establishes the Patient-Centered Medical Home Act pilot project. This creates the authority to assign every health care client's medical records to a specific location. It further assigns the patient to that location, or medical home, creating a patient/doctor partnership. A team of medical personnel form a contract with each patient to oversee and guide that patient's health care, mostly preventive care.
This home is sort of the gatekeeper approach to health care somewhat like the procedure for Kaiser patients, it would seem.

March 22, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - According to the Muslim News, about 800 people recently gathered together for "The Muslim News Awards for Excellence" supposedly to recognize Muslim contributions to British society. Unbelievably a special award was presented to Dr. Gill Hicks who founded,"Making a Difference for Peace" an organization she created after losing both of her legs as a result of the 2005 London terror bombings. [source,http://www.iina.me/english/news.php?go=fullnews&newsid=148]
Apparently the perverse act of bestowing a Muslim News Award for Excellence on the double amputee victim of a Muslim terror attack was lost on the politicians present.
Other politicians such as liberal democratic leader Nick Clegg and Opposition leader David Cameron sent laudatory messages. Among those attending were Communities Secretary John Denham and Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling.
March 22, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Despite much evidence pointing to the fallacy underlying the administration's conclusion, Secty of State Clinton has congratulated the Pakistanis on the eve of their "National Day," March 23 for their alleged diligence in the war on terror, "Today, your country is suffering from terrorism and your security forces and civilians are making great sacrifices to fight extremists. The people of the United States will stand by and support Pakistani efforts to build a peaceful and prosperous future. We wish you a happy Pakistan Day." [source, http://www.state.gov/secretary/rm/2010/03/138530.htm]
This administration has not been alone in perpetuating the myth that Pakistan and the West share similar goals in battling the Islamic jihad , with the Bush team continually praising Pakistan for its anti-terror actions even while under Musharraf the country was busily signing peace treaties with the Taliban and by extension their al-Qaeda allies:
"President Pervez Musharraf has failed to prevent Pakistan from handing over territory to the Taliban, this time to a group called the Movement for the Enforcement of Islamic Laws. On March 17, a Pakistani "peace" committee struck a verbal agreement with the Mohmand tribe, under which the government promised to cease military activity in Bajaur in exchange for the tribe's promise not to shelter "foreigners" or allow cross-border attacks into Afghanistan."

March 18, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - - Headley, a U.S. citizen of Pakistani descent, pleaded guilty today to a dozen federal terrorism charges today including participation in the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India, and an attack on a Danish newspaper that had published allegedly anti-Islamic cartoons.
Headley had been trained by the terrorist group Lashkar e Tayyib in Pakistan, where he learned the skills necessary to gather intelligence on the Mumbai target, which he admitted to doing on five extended reconnaissance trips.
Headley's guilty plea was part of a plea bargain which in addition to other cooperation given to federal investigators, allowed him to escape the death penalty for his actions.
The terrorist's sentencing has been delayed until authorities have been assured that he has fully revealed the full extent of his knowledge of the terror network.
The Mumbai attacks started on Nov. 26, 2008, continuing through Nov. 28 and involved 10 terrorists armed with firearms, grenades and IEDs which were directed against premiere tourist spots including the Taj Mahal and Oberoi hotels, the Leopold Café, the Chabad House and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus train station.

March 18, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Almost a million of Holland's 16 million population are Muslims - the majority coming from Africa [primarily Morocco and Somalia] and Turkey. Over 50% of the residents of Amsterdam are non-native Dutch and some areas of the city are 70% foreign born.
In the 1960s when the "special relationship" with Morocco was forged [primarily a glorified guest-worker concept] Holland's free thinkers supported a system of reparations in-kind, offered as partial atonement for the supposed sins of Dutch colonialism. The prevailing belief being that Dutch expansion/exploration had impacted North Africa negatively and it was far past time to address that perceived injustice.
Since then, often aided by bellicose foreign-born radical imams, young Moroccan men have been involved in criminal activity at a rate exponentially above their numbers in the general population.
In the latest incident, a case of vicious street crime, a youth from Veenendaal [located in central Holland near Utrecht] was beaten, robbed, partially stripped and laid across a set of railroad tracks by members of a Moroccan gang. The event was part of a crime wave in the city that has seen the mayor advising city residents to stay off the streets at night because the police couldn't protect them.
Other Dutch towns have suffered a similar fate with the mayor of Zaltbommel having received death threats after speaking out against the violence. Similar incidents have happened in the neighboring towns of Gouda and Utrecht, again perpetrated by young Moroccan hoods.
March 17, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Speaking where few dare go, yesterday in a series of interviews Dr. Hagai Ben-Artz, Binyamin Netanyahu's brother-in-law, charged president Obama with being an anti-Semite.
Ben-Artz, quoted in Arutz Sheva, stated, "the time has come to tell the truth - we are talking about an anti-Semite...We Jews are a people from nearly 4,000 years ago. In another year, you [Obama] will disappear. Who will remember you?" [source, http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/136571]
Netanyahu's brother-in-law was also highly critical of the president's long-time pastor, Reverend Wright claiming in an interview with IDF Radio that the controversial church leader was, "anti-Israeli, anti-Jewish and anti-Semitic." [source, ibid]
Tensions between the United States and Israel have seldom been this strained. The most recent provocation took place last week with vice-president Biden's meddling in the politics of Jerusalem ["I condemn the decision" to build additional housing in East Jerusalem] followed by Secty of State Clinton's "blistering" [John Bolton's words, see - http://www1.voanews.com/english/news/middle-east/Clinton-Vents-Frustration-Over-Israeli-Jerusalem-Move-in-Call-to-Netanyahu-87493047.html] telephone conversation on the same matter with the Israeli PM.

March 16, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - When even the pedantically leftist AP takes note of the "growing unease," with which Europeans view their burgeoning Muslim populations, there must be considerable fire behind the smoke. [see, Culture clash: European art provokes Muslims, http://m.apnews.com/ap/db_16029/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=Ndcy9Xih]
At issue here is the central question in the culture clash between the West and Islam - at what point does our tradition of laissez faire liberalism - especially when it comes to accommodating alien and often antagonistic cultures - become a suicide pact?
Such questions are faced on a daily basis in both Europe and North America where similar migrations of primarily Third World individuals have often chosen not to become acculturated to their new surroundings.
On the Continent, France seems to have the most pressing problem with nearly 10% of its population being Muslim. Crammed - by choice and design - into segregated neighborhoods, these communities have been the scene of numerous violent Intifada type riots involving hundreds of participants.

March 11, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - According to an Israeli news report, a number of Hispanic activists are visiting Israel on a trip sponsored by the American Jewish Committee's Project Interchange.
Some of these guests of the AJC are members of the controversial group La Raza.
The National Council of La Raza [National Council of The Race] is primarily a left-wing organization which advocates Hispanic racial supremacy, undermining counter terrorism efforts in the United States through its advocacy of illegal immigration. The NCLR also has reportedly funded MEChA in the past, a virulently anti-Semitic group which is working towards making the American Southwest into a Hispanic nation - under foreign control.
March 11, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Responding to an increasing sense of urgency spawned by the rapidly escalating public disapproval with the Obama administration and Democrat Congressional leadership, the House has just overwhelmingly and in a bipartisan manner adopted Minority Leader Boehner's resolution to institute a full ethics probe of disgraced congressman Eric Massa.
Speaking for the GOP, Mr. Boehner stated, "The resolution that passed the House with a strong bipartisan majority today is a clear signal that an investigation to examine and answer the very serious questions arising from Democratic Leaders' response to their former colleague's conduct is necessary. These questions must be answered to begin repairing the broken bonds of trust between the Congress and the American people. We all have a responsibility to rise above politics and do what's right for the institution of the House...
March 11, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Today, GOP Minority Leader Boehner introduced a resolution calling for a complete ethics investigation of Eric Massa [D, NY].
Key in this investigation is when did House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi become aware of Massa's alleged sexual harassment of House staff, including possibly young male pages.
The resolution reads:
Whereas, on March 8, 2010, Representative Eric Massa resigned from the House; Whereas, numerous newspapers and other media organizations reported in the days before and after Mr. Massa's resignation that the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct was investigating allegations that Mr. Massa sexually harassed Members of his congressional staff; Whereas, on March 3, 2010, Majority Leader Hoyer's office issued a statement saying, "The week of February 8th, a member of Rep. Massa's staff brought to the attention of Mr. Hoyer's staff allegations of misconduct that had been made against Mr. Massa. Mr. Hoyer's staff immediately informed him of what they had been told...

March 11, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Visiting Israel apparently with the sole intention of further damaging relations between the Jewish state and team Obama, Joe Biden yesterday sided with Pale Authority terrorist in chief Mahmoud Abbas in a concocted dispute with Israel over the building of housing units in Ramat Shlomo an Orthodox religious community in northeast Jerusalem.
Clearly demonstrating the administrations tilt towards the radical Palestinian position, Biden charged Israel with inflaming tensions, "As we move forward, the United States will hold both sides accountable for any statements or actions that inflame tensions or prejudice the outcome of talks, as this decision did," directly after meeting with Abbas.
Taking their cue from the vice president's actions, the Palestinians immediately broke off the current round of peace talks with Israel.
March 10, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a federal indictment unsealed today, Pennsylvania resident Colleen Renee LaRose [aka Fatima LaRose] has been arrested upon suspicion that she was attempting to provide material aid to Islamic terrorists and that she allegedly traveled to Sweden to carry out an attack against a perceived anti-Muslim cartoonist.
It is believed that LaRose's target was Lars Vilks, a controversial Swedish cartoonist who had already been threatened with death by al-Qaeda.
From the LaRose Indictment:
March 9, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Tom Campbell, the Democrat's idea of a wet dream phony conservative candidate for CA Senator, has been outed by Steven Emerson's Investigative Project on Terrorism [IPT] as having continued to actively support fundraiser Sami Al-Arian even after the now confessed terrorist - having admitted providing "services" for Palestinian Islamic Jihad - was under investigation.
Sending a very strong signal at the time that Al-Arian might have been a tainted personality, his close associate [and brother-in-law] Mazen al-Najjar had been revealed in court proceedings as being a ""threat to national security."
During this period of time numerous media sources had done exposes on Al-Arian's radicalism, including NBC's Dateline which featured a clip of Al-Arian calling Jews "monkeys" and "pigs" and advocating the "death of Israel."
March 8, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On a day which featured a suicide bombing attempt and gun battle in the Eastern Afghan town of Khost, U.S. Secty of Defense Gates made his first post-surge visit to the troubled country.
Appearing at a joint media event with president Karzai, Gates warned of tough times and "dark days" as the struggle to defeat al-Qaeda and the Taliban escalates saying, "There is still much fighting ahead, and there will assuredly be some dark days. But looking forward there are grounds for optimism..." [source, Al Jazeera, http://english.aljazeera.net/news/asia/2010/03/201038181835654228.html]
Gates also met with the U.S. commander in Afghanistan, General Stanley McChrystal, who refused to apply a timetable to the pushback operation, saying that forces should be ready to go sometime in early summer and that there will be no identifiable D-Day as the operation ramps up.
March 8, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - A Pakistani state security spy agency was targeted by a suicide bomber today. Casualties are believed to be heavy, with dead so far numbering over a dozen.
The Special Investigation Agency [SIA] building located in Lahore was demolished in the blast.
It has been conjectured [see, http://www.allheadlinenews.com/articles/7018036124] that the SIA was chosen because of its counter terror activities in Punjab as well as due to fallout over the arrest of Abu Yahya Mujahdeen al-Adam believed to be an American al-Qaeda operative who was originally misidentified as Adam Gadahn, the American al-Qaeda spokesman.
March 8, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - A second series of arrests were made last night in an expanding terror probe centering on the British Airways facility at London's Heathrow airport.
The three suspects have not yet been identified but news reports [see for example, http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/2877333/British-Airways-staff-in-second-terror-arrest.html] state that they allegedly were engaged in a fundraising plot to possibly bring down a airliner.
The UK has been on severely heightened terror alert since the Christmas day attempted U.S. bombing by London resident Umar Abdulmutallab.
March 8, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Adam Gadahn [aka Adam Pearlman, Azzam the American, Adam Yahiye Gadahn] the U.S. born, high-level al-Qaeda spokesman was apparently not the suspect arrested in Karachi Pakistan a few days ago.
Though initial reports so identified him, Pakistani officials now claim that the man they apprehended is Yahya Mujahideen Adam who is also thought to be an American al-Qaeda sympathizer, but from Pennsylvania rather than Gadahn's home state of California.
Gadahn, a Muslim convert, was indicted in 2006 for treason - aiding al-Qaeda - and is on the FBI's most wanted list.

March 4, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Since the beginning of the second half of the 2009-2010 term we have been following over 100 bills dealing in various aspects of education and health for their effects on the right to life and family privacy rights as well as other public policy issues.
As of today many of those bills have failed or been held in committee. Two have been signed by the Governor. Today I present you with 17 bills affecting education and family. Please pass this information on to others; your pastors, educator friends, clubs. Above all please notify your elected representatives of your position on these bills.
Everyone has a right to submit their position on a bill, even non-profit, tax deductible organizations. This is public policy not campaigning.
We take a moment to recap our concerns over education bills and family primacy and privacy.
The following is a very brief and simple explanation of developments in education.
The US Department of Education was formed in 1965 out of the bowels of the then Health and Human Services Administration. The current Obama appointed Director is Arne Duncan who stated, upon his appointment that: :Education is the Civil Rights issue of our generation," and, further that: "education is an economic imperative."
March 3, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Team Obama was hit hard this afternoon by a major revelation by Fox News [see, http://liveshots.blogs.foxnews.com/2010/03/03/exclusive-unknown-doj-lawyers-identified] which has determined the identity of 7 of the attorneys currently working for DOJ who either represented accused terrorists, filed amicus briefs on their behalf or worked for firms who represented these clients, usually pro-bono.
Two DOJ attorneys had already been identified.
The seven are:

March 3, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In what might possibly be seen as a hopeful sign of incipient Islamic moderation, Tahir ul-Qadri a Pakistani born Sufi scholar today announced in London, a 600 page fatwa [religious finding] that terrorism in any form is inconsistent with the Muslim religion.
Specifically ul-Qadri condemned the practice of suicide bombing, saying its practitioners "are going to hell."
Such condemnations have taken place in the past, most conspicuously in the wake of the 9.11.01 attack in the U.S. and the 7.11.05 attack in London, unfortunately to little effect.
Some observers of these efforts have labeled them as having been crafted more for public consumption than anything else. Tahir ul-Qadri's declaration does appear to be a bit different however, if for no other reason than the sheer length of his exegesis.

March 1, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Zaytuna College in Berkeley, California was founded by Hamza Yusuf, Zaid Shakir and Hatem Bazian. The freshman class will consist of 25 students.
According to a report in Islam On Line [see, http://www.islamonline.net/English/News/2010-02/24/02.shtml#ixzz0gTft8Pj9]
All three founders have made extremist statements supportive of radical Islam.
At a 2004 rally in California Bazian, "ungrammatically declared to a crowd of protestors, "we're sitting here and watching the world pass by, people being bombed, and it's about time that we have an intifada in this country that change fundamentally the political dynamics in here. They're gonna say, 'some Palestinian being too radical' well, you haven't seen radicalism yet!" [source, http://frontpagemag.com/Articles/Printable.asp?ID=13384]
