SHOOTING FISH IN A BARREL
By Betty Freauf
While people were jubilant over the New York Yankees win in the world series and Congress was busily trying to get Blue Dog Democrats to vote for this ridiculous health care bill that the majority of people don’t want, what happened at Ft. Hood, Texas was like shooting fish in a barrel at the medical facility and then spilled over outside. One of the injured soldiers who miraculously survived told in a TV interview how the assailant was seated at his desk in the front of the room filled with some 300 unarmed soldiers lined up on November 5th for vaccines and eye tests when he suddenly began shooting randomly.
Who disarmed our military? A caller to the Michael Savage show said he served in the U.S. Navy from 1978-1982. He indicated it was under Democrat President Jimmy Carter that the military saw fundamental changes occurring concerning the enforcement of disarmament of military personnel. On November 10th a former U.S. Navy “submariner” working at our home as I was writing this article confirmed this. He said the military had turned security over to “rent a cop” (private contractors.) It was Col. Rossi, Deputy Commander General for the 3rd Corp in a new conference that said it was a 39-year old American-born Muslim by the name of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who the military (taxpayers) had trained to be an Army psychiatrist. Some fatuous sycophants were claiming he may have suffered from traumatic stress disorder; however, we later learned he wasn’t due to be deployed to the Middle East until later in November.
An A-P article said soldiers reported the gunman shouted “Allahu Akbar!” – an Arabic phrase for “God is Great” before firing more than 100 rounds with his privately owned
FN 5.7 pistol that he purchased a few days earlier at the local “Guns Galore” store in Killeen, Texas. According to reports, the gun could only fire 20 rounds requiring the assailant to reload more than five times. He also had a second revolver.
While our military is being disarmed, this assassin was allowed to walk onto the base with guns. A May 6, 1995 New York Times article said that engineers at a federally financed laboratory were developing a security device that uses radar to peer through someone’s clothing to inspect his or her body for hidden objects. It said working prototypes of these holographic radar scanners already existed and engineers at the Pacific Northwest Laboratory in Richland, Wash. believed that a perceived need by security officials to scan people’s bodies for concealed weapons and explosive may soon eclipse issues of cost and personal modesty. Now passengers at airports are being thoroughly screened right down to taking off shoes but an alleged known troubled walking time bomb was allowed to enter the compound with guns. Go figure?!
Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the post commander said officials had not confirmed the “suspect” Hasan, who is of Palestinian descent, made the “God is Great” comment and perhaps in order to calm the waters, the FBI announced it was not a terrorist attack while Republican Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson from Texas used the word “a speculative” terrorist attack. But those were initial reports and now things have changed.
The World Net Daily reported Hasan served on Obama’s transitional team. If the word “terrorist” is used it would mean that all the “make nice” that Obama has tried to do with the Muslims since he’s been elected has been to no avail. Remember him saying to the Muslim community in Cairo, “If you unclench your fist, we’ll open our arms. We have done things in the past as a country that we are in the process of correcting” and then he proceeded to list what he perceived as America’s evil deeds as he praised the historical contributions the Muslims have made to the world. I have a political cartoon showing two dogs in bed. One is leaning on his/her elbow and saying to the other, “I just want to tell you that I’ve got fleas.” In other words, those who say appease, appease are hung by those they tried to please.
Within hours after the 1995 Oklahoma City Murrah building was allegedly bombed by a truck driven by a white of European descent, blue eyed former veteran by the name of Timothy McVeigh, I remember officials marching him in front of the TV cameras with a bullet proof vest and I wondered how they caught him so quickly. They said it was his expired license on the vehicle! As witnesses described how they saw his truck parked in front of the Murrah Building, my mind went back to my Fourth of July days when kids would put firecrackers under empty coffee cans and watch them blow – straight up, not sideways which would have meant a few windows on the Murrah Building might have been broken and some cement peeled off the outside of the building. The Oklahoma Water Resource Board had a tape recording going at their office across the street from the bombing and reported it sounded like three explosions on the audio tape and later it was revealed there were explosives under the building that caused yet another of our nation’s attacks – the first being in 1993 after the World Trade Center bombing when the terrorists said they’d be back. A mass of lies and cover-ups followed after Oklahoma and went unreported in the complicit mainline media and the crime scene was hurriedly dismantled as though evidence was being concealed. Although there was a suggestion some Middle Eastern men may have been involved, the real terrorists were never found or prosecuted and under President Bill Clinton’s watch, Timothy McVeigh was either executed as was reported or he’s in the Witness Protection program somewhere. And now Hasan is yelling discrimination and religious harassment? This is a prime example of political correctness gone amok!
Immediately after the shootings, sketchy facts were being reported on FOX and we were told the President would be having a news conference shortly. Nothing forewarned us about which I was aware that he had been addressing the Indians on his healthcare agenda so when he walked to the podium we were expecting to hear a very saddened president speak to us about the massacre but he rambled on and on amidst applause even getting Dr. Joe Medicine Crow’s award wrong. Obama himself awarded Dr. Joe the Medal of Freedom (for civilians) but Obama said it was the Congressional Medal of Honor (for military) What was going on? What was he talking about? In my last article, I said Glenn Beck confuses me. I’m still trying to go through the e-mails that agreed overwhelmingly but President Barack Obama tops Glenn Beck.
How could we know what had just happened and our “fearless” leader seemed still in the dark? For more than two minutes this insensitive and inept leader read from the teleprompter and who in the TV listening audience had a clue what he was doing?
A picture formed in my mind of President George Bush continuing to read a story about a goat to small children as he sat on the little chair in their classroom as a staff member whispered in his ear about the 9-11 attack but this Obama performance took the cake!
The FBI had been aware of Hasan’s rambling on the Internet about his opposition to the war in Afghanistan and Iraq and how the killing at the Arkansas Recruiting Center in June by a Muslim was justified equating it to a suicide bomber. The fact that he gave his furniture and his food away and paid someone to clean his apartment and then refused the cleaning deposit refund seemed unusual but he was such a nice guy, his neighbors didn’t get suspicious. Obviously they didn’t know about his Internet blogs. He was planning to meet those virgins. I believe it was Rush Limbaugh who reported on November 9th that Hasan attended a strip club three times last month and had a lap dance by one of the girls a few days before the shooting. It was reported that those Muslims involved in the 9-11 attack also visited a strip bar.
But we must ask, which government agency failed our troops? Shouldn’t some mental health professional been examining the psychiatrist? The psychobabblers are constantly trying to determine our mental state and yet Maj. Hasan’s mental state was ignored. Unbelievable!! Now we learn they knew about this guy but political correctness kept them from doing anything about it fearing they’d be reprimanded for discriminating. Janet Napolitano at Homeland Security is watching out for the “right-wing extremists” while this guy slipped through the cracks.
A few weeks ago we received a letter from our insurance company stating someone would be calling with some “survey” questions. A couple hours after the Ft. Hood attack, the call arrived. We didn’t mind the first few questions about our ages, primary provider, etc. but then ever so discreetly the survey questions moved into the mental health asking if we had any memory loss, depression, did we consume alcohol, did we have thoughts of suicide? At that point I had thoughts of – well what I’d like to do with this guy! He asked us if we had a Power of Attorney. He played a little head game with us testing our memory. He mentioned three fruits: Apples, Oranges and Bananas and had us repeat it back. Then he asked us to spell WORLD backwards and then he wanted us to repeat the fruits. Had we thought quickly enough we should have said, “Hey, we can’t spell WORLD frontward, so how do you expect us to spell it backwards?” We were interviewed separately. He asked us to tell him in what city we lived. (We don’t live in a city – in the country). He asked about the season. Hubby replied, “It must be fall in Oregon, it’s raining!” He asked the day’s date and how much education we had and what we do for entertainment and exercise. The person asking the questions often determines attitude and if one refuses to answer the nosey questions, they could be written up as “uncooperative” which could cause some to believe we were hiding something. I saw through the whole survey but they’ve got us between a rock and a hard place. Data is being gathered as rapidly as possible to be fed into the master data bank. And guess what the headline in our local newspaper said shortly afterwards? DATABASE TO HOLD HEALTH DIRECTIVES.
What constitutes “normal” today?
Are they purposely trying to drive us crazy with all the government intervention into our personal lives? Put my name under the mental health category: paranoia!! And anyone who speaks out against our government is definitely going to be targeted because,
“Every child in America that enters school at the age of five is mentally ill because he comes to school with allegiance toward our elected officials, toward our Founding Fathers, toward our institutions, toward the preservation of this form of government. We have patriotism, nationalism, sovereignty – all that proves that children are sick, because the truly well individual is the one who has rejected all those things, and is what I would call the true international child of the future,” said the noted Harvard educator, Dr. William Pierce. Psychiatrists team with teachers to prey upon normal children that have become fodder for the psychiatric-pharmaceutical cartel. So, as you can see, they came first for the captive audience in the public schools and they brainwashed the college kids. Check out motherjones.com.

Maj. Hasan also had a captive audience – his fellow soldiers. We have enemies within! Immigrants in the past assimilated but that is not to be any more. Now they want special “rights” and recognition. A Salem, Oregon school teacher for 30 years wrote in an August 2000 newspaper opinion, “It’s not 1957 anymore, folks. She says in 1957 family reunions found people moderately educated, healthy, white, straight and Christian. Then she proudly described a current family reunion: Ph.D’s, master’s degrees, five were Buddhists, one was African American, one was Tibetan and four were gay. This is what she arrogantly today boasts as normal! This is multiculturalism/diversity gone amok! All “Rhodes” lead to a New World Order. Communism never went away.
