On the weekly Saturday night show on YouTube, I have repeatedly warned against liberal Democrat ideology in regards to the ISIS threat. Long time listeners know that very early on, I endorsed Donald Trump because of his no nonsense approach to keeping American citizens safe.
In college, I had to take several multiculturalism courses in order to get my teaching credentials to teach in the California public school system. I remember when my instructor said, “Everyone has the right to be equal, and the equal right to be different”. To which I shouted out, “Yeah, but the right to swing your fist ends at my nose!” Needless to say, I didn’t have much of a future in liberalism and becoming a public school teacher.
In the name of multiculturalism, our politicians are allowing thousands of potential terrorists inside our country without any type of monitoring whatsoever. The reality is that terrorist attacks are likely to become a regular occurrence in the U.S.
The recent attack at at gay club in Orlando was inspired by ISIS. This attack was not a surprise for those of us who are Donald Trump supporters.
Many politicians are calling for a ban on automatic weapons. Others are calling for a much more armed citizenry. Still others are calling on more gay acceptance policies to be forced down everyone’s throat.
Folks, I told you redefining marriage to be between a man and a man was only going to create deep hidden resentment across most of the populace. They should have just created another classification of union, and called it something like he-marriage or just harriage. With all the perks of marriage except no tax breaks for harriage as those tax breaks are for married couples who are giving birth to children to propagate the human race which is, uh, sort of freaking important.
The answer is not for the populace to arm themselves to the teeth. Why? Folks, I don’t want to be mean but the average Joe is sort of stupid. Take the guy at the Orlando night club, the so called “good Samaritan” that said to Megyn Kelly on Fox News that he held the door to trap the shooter inside so he couldn’t escape. Megyn said, uh, how do you know you didn’t also prevent innocent people from escaping by doing that? The dude actually said well, I did feel some pushes on the door but I didn’t know if that was people trying to escape or the shooter trying to escape. Gosh, I hope I didn’t stop people from escaping by holding the front door shut I was just focused on not letting the shooter get away. Sort of stupid, right? If you didn’t run out the front door before that “good Samaritan”, you were basically trapped inside with the shooter because that dumb arse was holding the door shut! Now think about it folks. You think giving a gun to someone like that is going to save the day? The guy would probably shoot a bunch of innocent people and his excuse would be that he was trying to get a clear shot off, and people kept running into his bullets! Trust me. Arming the average Joe is only going to increase the probability that more innocent people are shot. I would prefer to let the trained professionals do their jobs. I mean if you could guarantee that everyone that was armed with a gun was a trained marksman that was trained not to panic and only shoot the bad guys, I’d be all for everyone armed to the teeth. But again, the reality is that the average Joe holding a gun is not going to have that type of crisis training or marksmanship. Plus, this was a nightclub with alcohol and it was like 2 AM in the morning. Most of the people there had a buzz and probably could barely stand, let alone squeeze off a kill shot to the attackers head. Please go drink some reality coffee and sober up from that NRA ad buzz please.
The answer to prevent an Orlando attack is so simple and obvious. Don’t mess with guns, gay rights, or anything else. Use technology to enforce “speed traps”.
The FBI had interviewed the Orlando murderer twice. They didn’t have enough to hold him. Fine. What they could and should have done was to flag him for a “speed trap”. What that means is that if certain behaviors are exhibited, the FBI is granted a court order to intercept and search a person’s home.
Speed traps should be used in the event of an FBI investigation that ends without enough evidence to prosecute an individual.
A speed trap is a technology implementation in existing databases already under government regulation. For example, in the weeks leading up to the Orlando rampage, Omar Mateen went out and bought a freaking AK automatic assault weapon and an automatic hand gun with a ton of ammo too! A speed trap on the gun check database, would have alerted local law enforcement to intercept Omar at the gun shop before he even walked out the door. A speed trap can be put on a credit card in the event of a purchase of large quantities of fertilizer and other bomb making materials.
It’s so simple folks! Databases have been around for decades. This solution gets around freedom of speech, gun laws, discrimination laws, and every other existing law in our free society. It lets law enforcement more effectively do their job without compromising the rights of law abiding citizens. Again, speed traps are only used on an individual the FBI is called out to investigate. Speed traps are not a criminal record and law enforcement must keep the identities of people in the speed trap database private.
Technology is the answer for many things. Why is law enforcement operating at such a low tech level? I have access to technology that can actually watch what every visitor does on this website, even down to tracking how they move their mouse over a web page! Give me a break. If I have access to such technology as an Internet marketer and website owner, why can’t law enforcement have access to better technology for tracking radicalized ISIS sympathizers?
Arming the populace, disarming the populace, forcing gay studies on every college student, battling ISIS ideology, these things are not the answer. We have to get smart and that means the better use of technology to track individuals that are reported to the FBI for possible terrorist connections. Reports are that a gun shop owner called the FBI about Omar 5 weeks ago! With speed trap technology, as soon as Omar purchased ammo or guns, the FBI and local law enforcement would have been instantly alerted. Such a speed trap algorithm would go something like:
If Muslim, then If connections to ISIS, then If complaints by co-workers/family/friends, then If FBI interviews and person seems psychologically unstable but not enough to hold, then If person purchases automatic weapon or large amount of ammo or bomb making materials/chemicals, then send local law enforcement to search home IMMEDIATELY. I’m not a profiler so I don’t know all the “IF” statements in the algorithm that should be used, but you get my point.
It’s not just about getting smart. We have to get tough. Law enforcement should have breached the building faster. Local police and SWAT waited outside the nightclub for hours before deciding to breach the building. Police and SWAT should have been on scene within minutes of the first 911 calls and they should have breached the building a few minutes after that. In Israel, they breach buildings within minutes because they know the longer they take to breach, the more people are killed. It’s a race against time.
The bottom line? We have to get smarter and tougher. Use technology to cut down on man-in-the-middle delays, and to automatically track the activities of suspects through the implementation of speed traps. When certain behaviors are exhibited by someone who has been reported to the FBI on multiple occasions, move in fast. Get tougher by breaching a building within minutes instead of hours and protect police from accusations of racism and discrimination. Police aren’t going to get tougher if they are too worried the Justice Department or a liberal Attorney General is going to accuse them of racism imo.
