World: Fort Hood Shooter Found Guilty, Will be Castrated

August 23, 2013

Why did Nidal Hassan kill 14 people.  Because, he is a Muslim.  They would not let him testify to that fact.  He tried to say he killed the Fort Hood victims due to his Muslim beliefs, but the judge would not let him.

Why was Fort Hood not classified a terrorist attack?  Because, Obama is a Muslim.

Why are we aiding the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt with Billions of dollars in weapons?  Because, Obama is a Muslim.

Why are we aiding  Al Qaeda in Libya and Syria with Billions of dollars and weapons.  Because, Obama is a Sunni Muslim.

Why is Obam purposely trying to destroy the US economy the way Saudi Arabia is, because they are both Muslim.




Fort Hood Shooter Guilty, May Face Death Penalty

Nidal Hasan found guilty on all counts in 2009 attack

(Newser) – Nidal Hasan seems to have gotten the verdict he wanted: The jury in the Fort Hood shooting trial has found him guilty on all counts, reports AP . That makes the former Army psychiatrist—who chose to act as his own attorney, but did very little actual lawyering during the trial—… More »

  • 89-Year-Old WWII Veteran Beaten to Death by Two Teens in Parking Lot

  • Finally. Four years after Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan walked into the Soldier Readiness Processing Center at Fort Hood, Texas, and perpetrated the bloodiest massacre ever on an American military base, the self-confessed jihadist’s court martial proceedings began this week. Have you forgotten?

    Americans obsessed over the O.J. Simpson, Casey Anthony and Jodi Arias trials. Gun-control lobbyists turned Newtown, Aurora and Tucson into national awareness-raising, fundraising and legislation-promoting campaigns. But where are the celebrity lobbyists and high-profile advocates for the victims of bloodthirsty Muslim vigilante Nidal Hasan?

    The White House, which downplayed the terrorist mass murder as “workplace violence,” exacerbated national apathy for his evil acts. Our soldiers deserve better. Here are three facts you’ve probably forgotten — or never knew — about the Fort Hood terror spree.

    –Fourteen victims fell on Nov. 5, 2009, not 13. Thirteen of our U.S. military personnel died in cold blood at the deployment center. But the death toll was actually 14. Pvt. Francheska Velez, 21, was pregnant when Hasan shot her during the first round of gunfire. At a military Article 32 hearing in 2010 (analogous to a civilian grand jury hearing), a survivor of the Fort Hood shootings testified that Velez cried out, “My baby! My baby!”

    In his opening statement on Tuesday, Hasan (acting as his own lawyer) apologized to his fellow jihadists for not destroying more innocent life.

    –The victims were all unarmed. Soldiers inside the deployment center were and are forbidden from carrying weapons — either issued weapons or personal arms — on base. When Hasan commenced his shooting spree by shouting, “Allahu Akbar,” several brave men and women in uniform used chairs, tables and their own bodies to try to stop him. But it wasn’t until a courageous, armed civilian police officer, Sgt. Kimberley Munley, arrived on the scene with her 9mm Beretta that Hasan’s rampage was interrupted.

    In a gunfight outside the deployment center, Munley wounded Hasan — who was able to return fire and shot her in the hand, thigh and knee. While she lay on the ground, Hasan kicked away her weapon. Another armed civilian police officer, Mark Todd, was able to fire at Hasan five times and brought him down.

    Blind, Deaf & Dumb: Army Still Lying About Nidal Malik Hasan

    By Debbie Schlussel

    When I read USA Today, this morning, I was in disbelief by a headline and accompanying article:

    Army Top Doc:  No Clues to Violence in Hasan File; Says Fort Hood Tragedy Couldn’t Be Predicted



    Yeah, Right:

    Army Surgeon Gen., Lt. Gen. Eric Schoomaker Denies Clues on Nidal Malik Hasan

    HUH?!, I thought. This is, after all, the same Nidal Malik Hasan who not only gave hints to his advocacy of Islamic jihadist violence against Americans repeatedly throughout his career, but several Army doctors and officials voiced their concerns. It’s also the same Nidal Malik Hasan, about whom I read a different headline in the very same McPaper, two days earlier:


    Army Reviews of Hasan Ignored Many Red Flags

    And that’s hardly news, since we’ve been hearing story after story in the months since the Fort Hood Islamic terrorist attack perpetrated by Maj. Hasan, all of them documenting how Hasan gave outright statement after outright statement about his extremist Islamic views and his wishes for them to be acted out by various parties. And we already know that, according to Ft. Hood Congressman John Carter, the Pentagon’s report on Fort Hood was sanitized to avoid discussing Islamic terrorism and offending Muslims.

    Yet Army Surgeon General, Lt. Gen. Eric Schoomaker, claims there were no clues of potential violence, as he and his underlings looked the other way and repeatedly engaged in Islamic affirmative action, promoting this monster and giving him glowing reviews.

    But Lt. Gen. Eric Schoomaker, the Army surgeon general, told USA TODAY there’s no evidence his staff “could have predicted” that Maj. Nidal Hasan, the man accused of killing 13 people at Fort Hood in Texas, “could have become a mass murderer.”

    Writes reader Sean, who spent several years serving our country in the U.S. Army, and asked the rhetorical “WTF?”:

    REALLY?? So the briefing he gave to other doctors that justified jihad…that didn’t clue anybody in? And his jihadi garb that he wore that day….that wasn’t a tip off? What PLANET is this guy on? And the fact that he was accusing soldiers of war crimes instead of treating their mental health issues…that wasn’t a clue? COME ON!!

    Exactly. The smoke and mirrors and buck-passing in this blind, head-in-the-sand, affirmative action promotion of Hasan by the Army and the military establishment is simply sickening.

    Sean adds:

    If the name, “Schoomaker,” looks familiar, it’s because he’s the younger brother of the former Army Chief of Staff.

    Sadly, the cronyism in the U.S. military never ends. Nor does the duck-and-weave around taking responsibility for Nidal Malik Hasan.

    If they can’t see the enemy in their own ranks, how on earth can we trust them to see and defeat the enemy away from U.S. soil? And why on earth are we fighting them “over there,” when we’re willingly allowing them to grow like metastasized cancer over here, right smack-dab in the middle of the U.S. Army?

    My Great-Uncle Maurice was the Surgeon General for the U.S. Army over the South Pacific, after Pearl Harbor was bombed. But he was also known as “The Cleaner.” Back in the day, he’d have been brought in to fire this guy, Schoomaker, and all the others who looked the other way at the long-impending explosion that is Nidal Malik Hasan.

      The average employer-provided family health insurance premiums have climbed $2,976 since 2009, according to an annual Kaiser Family Foundation survey released this week. They’re up $3,671 compared with the year before President Obama took office. That’s despite Obama’s repeated promises that the health care reform law he championed would cut premiums by $2,500 in his first term. And while annual premium increases have moderated over the past two years, that’s due to trends in the insurance market largely unrelated to ObamaCare, and trends the law could actually reverse.

      The European Union will review relations with Zimbabwe given its “serious concerns” about the conduct of the southern African state’s election, EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said on Thursday. The EU’s verdict on the fairness of the elections will be crucial to a decision on whether it continues to ease sanctions against Zimbabwe. Ashton did not broach the issue of such sanctions in her statement. President Robert Mugabe is to be sworn back into office soon after winning the July 31 election, extending—at age 89—his 33-year rule dating back to independence from Britain.

      New York City seems on the verge of making the same mistake that Detroit made 40 years ago. The mistake is to abolish the NYPD practice referred to as stop and frisk.

The effectiveness of this police practice, initiated by Mayor Rudy Giuliani in 1994 and continued by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is not in doubt.

      “Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon in the sense that it is and can be produced only by a more rapid increase in the quantity of money than in output.”– Milton Friedman Whatever else Obama studied at Accidental University, it wasn’t economics. If it had studied economics, he’d understand that the more the federal government throws money at higher education, the higher the costs are going to go. The College Board recently released statistics that bear this out. During the Slight Depression of ‘09 and ’10, when deflation was the problem, state and private universities saw “the largest…

You have surely seen, on this site and others, in print and on TV, a lot of words devoted to the phenomenon of Duck Dynasty, the A&E show that has climbed to the top of the cable ratings mountain. It is the stream of consciousness of the Robertson clan, whose patriarch Phil is the spark behind two things– a very successful duck call company, and a family engaging and funny enough to draw millions of viewers each week to TV’s most talked-about program.

      Germany will permit parents to select a “third gender” on birth certificates for their children, should the child want to identify with a certain gender in the future. Germany is the first country in Europe to pass this type of legislation.

The child may also…

      THERE is an indisputable elegance to the idea of transforming garbage into fuel, of turning icky, smelly detritus into something valuable. But big drawbacks have prevented the wholesale adoption of trash-to-gas technology in the United States: incineration is polluting, and the capital costs of new plants are enormous. Gasification systems can expend a tremendous amount of energy to produce a tiny amount of electricity. Up to this point, it hasn’t seemed worth the trouble. Mike Hart thinks that he has solved those problems. In a former Air Force hangar outside Sacramento, his company, Sierra Energy, has spent the last several…
