During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as workplace violence. She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.
Political correctness allowed the Ft. Hood terrorist attack to occur and it will continue to lead to more attacks.
Imam Obama just addressed the nation on the developing attempted terrorist attacks on synagogues in Chicago.
Not one mention of Islamic extremism, Islamo-fascism, or Islamic terrorism. He referenced only “violent” extremism. This is precisely what I was referring to on yesterday’s podcast. Obama speaks more stridently against his domestic political opponents than he does our enemy in the War on Terror Overseas Contingency Operation.
He did confirm that explosives were found on the packages intercepted in the UK destined for synagogues in Chicago.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Adults believe America today has become too politically correct, while just 23% say the country is not politically correct enough. Eleven percent (11%) say the balance is about right.
Some people think that government officials too often override the facts and common sense in the name of political correctness, and 74% regard political correctness as a problem in America today. Thirteen percent (13%) disagree and say it’s not a problem, and 13% more are not sure.
Sixty-three percent (63%) of voters said last November that political correctness prevented the U.S. military from responding to warning signs that could have prevented Major Nidal Malik Hasan from massacring 13 people and wounding many others at Fort Hood, Texas. (My emphasis)
(FoxNews.com) Anwar Al-Awlaki may be the first American on the CIA’s kill or capture list, but he was also a lunch guest of military brass at the Pentagon within months of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, Fox News has learned.
Documents exclusively obtained by Fox News, including an FBI interview conducted after the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009, state that Awlaki was taken to the Pentagon as part of the military’s outreach to the Muslim community in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.
According to the documents, obtained as part of an ongoing investigation by the specials unit “Fox News Reporting,” there was a push within the Defense Department to reach out to the Muslim community.
“At that period in time, the secretary of the Army (redacted) was eager to have a presentation from a moderate Muslim.”
In addition, Awlaki “was considered to be an ‘up and coming’ member of the Islamic community. After her vetting, Aulaqi (Awlaki) was invited to and attended a luncheon at the Pentagon in the secretary of the Army’s Office of Government Counsel.”
Awlaki, a Yemeni-American who was born in Las Cruces, N.M., was interviewed at least four times by the FBI in the first week after the attacks because of his ties to the three hijackers Nawaf al-Hazmi, Khalid al-Mihdhar and Hani Hanjour. The three hijackers were all onboard Flight 77 that slammed into the Pentagon.
On today’s edition of The Conservative Beacon Podcast with Josh Price:
The war in Afghanistan is now the longest in U.S. history and it’s because we have tried to fight in a politically correct, sensitized way. The mission for the War on Terror should be to destroy Islamofascism which is, sorry Eric Holder, the enemy.
Obama administration denies any impropriety in Sestak job offers.

Christian preacher arrested in Britain by a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender liaison (yes, apparently there is such a position on Britain) for violating the Public Order Act by simply saying homosexuality is a sin. My question to you: how long before we have laws against so-called “hate speech” like the Public Order Act here in America? Simply offending or insulting someone would be a crime punishable by imprisonment!
