The terrorist attack on the hydropower station in the Caucasus Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria on 21 July which killed two police guards has stirred fears that Islamist militants might start pursuing other economic targets.

The attack, which saw three to five gunmen break into the 25-megawatt station and plant five bombs on the premises, marks a milestone for Islamist militants, who have threatened to attack economic targets across Russia since at least 2009 but never before succeeded. The assailants fled the scene following the attack. Authorities claim to know the identities of the assailants, and some reports indicate that the same individuals might have attacked a nearby police station with grenade launchers prior to the power plant incident.

Investigators found concrete evidence on computers used by PFC Bradley Manning that link him with the leak of classified Afghanistan war reports, a U.S. defense official said, The Wall Street Journal reported July 30. Defense officials said the FBI was investigating whether civilians aided Manning in providing the information to WikiLeaks.

Defense officials said Manning used his "Top Secret/SCI" clearance to
tap into documents around the world. A search of the computers yielded evidence he had downloaded the Afghanistan war logs, the defense official said.

"To betray, you must first belong," is a US Army Counter-Intelligence (CI) Truism.

In this case, knucklehead here recruited himself, and he betrayed for no measureable purpose. That is, Brad Manning did not betray his country for money, nor did he betray for an ideology or cause.

He did it because he was a fame whore; he sought attention for himself.

Manning passed the video to Wikileaks in February. After April 5 when the video was released and made headlines Manning contacted 20-year-old Tyler Watkins - a close friend in Boston - from Iraq asking him about the reaction in the United States.

“He would message me, Are people talking about it? Are the media saying anything?”

This is a sign of where the popular culture is headed via all those stupid social networking sites and reality-based TV shows; a symptom of what I describe as the "Fifteen Minutes of Fame" Syndrome, after the term coined by Andy Warhol, back in the early 60s.

Bradley Manning will have a lot of time to contemplate what he did and why; now, and for the rest of his life - in between episodes where his fellow inmates pass him around and use him as their communal sock puppet, that is.

Obama Reveals Key To His Character

By Ronald Kessler

If you want to know what makes President Barack Obama tick, take a look at his explanation for why Israelis have turned against him.

During an interview with Israel’s Channel Two, Obama was asked why he thinks Israelis mistrust him.

“Some of it may just be the fact that my middle name is Hussein,” he told the interviewer, “and that creates suspicion. Some of it may have to do with the fact that I have actively reached out to the Muslim community, and I think that sometimes
­particularly in the Middle East ­there’s the feeling of the friend of my enemy must be my enemy.”

In two sentences, Obama revealed the key to his character. Of course, the reason Israelis and a growing number of American Jews mistrust Obama is that, contrary to his claim of being a friend to Israel, he has actively sided with Israel’s enemies and dissed Israel.

The fact that Obama would take such a well-known fact and turn it into another slam against Israelis demonstrates Obama’s disingenuousness, his arrogance, and his obsessive need to blame everyone but himself for problems he has created.

“During the campaign, more Israelis supported him than did not support him,” says Morton Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America. “And 78 percent of American Jews cast their ballots for Obama, knowing what his middle name was. Israelis like King Hussein, who has the same name.”

Klein says, “It is insulting to say Israelis have turned against Obama because of his name. It means that the Israelis are bigots against Muslims simply because they are Muslims. Of course, the reason Jews are turning against Obama is his policies. It has to do with him very unfairly pressuring the Israelis and not pressuring the Muslims and blaming Israel for all problems in the Middle East. It was only after he
became president and Israelis became aware of his actions and policies that his positive support among Israelis vanished.”

Nor, Klein says, does the turnaround have anything to do with the fact that Obama is
reaching out to Muslims. He notes that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has also been reaching out to Muslims.

“Nobody is angry at him for that in Israel,” Klein says. “Obama’s remark was really disgraceful.”

Yet blaming others and not taking responsibility is as fundamental to Obama’s style as apples are to apple pie.

Obama blames George W. Bush for handing him a growing deficit. Never mind that, because of Obama’s wild spending spree, the national debt will double by 2019, threatening the country’s stability. Under Bush, annual federal spending
totaled $24,000 per household. Obama would increase that spending under his budget plan to more than $36,000 per household by 2020.

Meanwhile, Obama is lecturing Great Britain, which is cutting government spending across the board by 25 percent, that it should reverse course and instead increase spending.

We have in the White House a president who not only disclaims responsibility for his own actions but also concocts stories such as the claim that Israelis don’t like him because his middle name is Hussein.

That is not leadership. It is demagoguery.

Turkish hackers circulated user names and passwords belonging to more than 100,000 Israelis, including those from major financial corporations, government ministries and data security companies, Haaretz reported July 21. Many of the user names were seized in an attack on, a real estate classifieds website. Among the Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo e-mail addresses were 17 belonging to Israeli Justice Ministry employees, 10 belonging to Bank of Israel employees, as well as a handful of employees at Israel 's Interior Ministry, Finance Ministry and the Securities Authority.

This is significant for two reasons: FIRST; this may very well signal the first dedicated cyber assault of one nation against another in conjunction with a political issue; i.e. "diplomacy by other means", i.e. WAR; and SECOND it is a Muslim country that is initiating this historic attack. - STORMBRINGER SENDS

What the hell does this mean?

Am I the only one who has no idea what this saying means?

In the past, OBAMA said he wants us to cut the amount of gasoline we use . . .

. . . maybe you'll recall his genius solution was to keep your tires inflated.

Well, I have a better idea:

The best way to stop using so much gasoline is to deport 15 million illegal immigrants! That would be 15 million less people using our gas. We've already seen that this will cost us nothing; because all we have to do is put the word out on the street that we're going to enforce a few existing immigration laws - like the good folk did in Arizona - and the illegals will pack up and move all by themselves.

Fifteen million fewer people at the pump means more gas for the rest of us - this is the law of supply and demand - the price of gas will come down . . .

Bring our troops home from Afghanistan to guard the borders, and when they catch an illegal immigrant crossing the Border, hand him a canteen, rifle and some ammo and send his ass to Afghanistan . . .

Tell him if he wants to come to AMERICA, he must first serve a tour in OUR military . . .

Give him a soldier's pay while he's there and tax him on it . . .

After his tour, he will be allowed to become a citizen since he defended this country . . .

He will also be registered to be taxed and be a legal resident....

This option will probably deter illegal immigration and provide a solution for the troops in Afghanistan and the aliens trying to make a better life for themselves . . .

If they refuse to serve, ship them to Afghanistan anyway, without the canteen, rifle or ammo . . .

Problem solved!

Responding to WikiLeaks' release of tens of thousands of pages of

Throughout history, the Jewish People has maintained a presence in Jerusalem, ever since King David established the city as his capital nearly 3,000 years ago. Except for a very few periods, when they were forcibly barred from living in the city by foreign conquerors, Jews have always lived in Jerusalem. Throughout millennia, and in the face of conquest, forced exile, violence and discrimination, Jews have maintained their direct link to Jerusalem, returning to live in their city again and again.

Between 1949 and 1967, while Jerusalem was divided between Israel and Jordan, there was an Israeli enclave about a mile to the east of the border, in the Jordanian section. This was Mount Scopus, with the campus of the Hebrew university and Haddassh hospital. There was an agreement whereby every two weeks 200 Israelis would cross Jordanian territory to the enclave, and sit there until the next group replaced them two weeks later.

Throughout the whole period everyone knew that sooner or later the war would resume, and that when that happened Israel would try to reconnect the mountain with the city. To prevent this the Jordanians built a series of fortifications in that mile, and its centerpiece was Ammunition Hill, an apt name borrowed from the days after the British conquered the city in 1917 and General Allenby stored his army's ammunition there.

Map of Battle of Ammunition Hill:

On the night between June 5th and 6th 1967 the IDF paratroopers, backed by a few tanks, made their attack, directly on the Jordanian fortifications. The battle on Ammunition Hill raged from...

Hokay STORMBRINGERS this one came across the email machine (and some of you might have seen it already) with the following opening lines:

"Have you seen anything about this story on the evening news? Of course you haven't!


- Censored Protest at Ground Zero"

Of course from where I'm operating right now I don't have TV just Internet - (it's a blessing but things will have to change as we get closer to NFL season) - so I don't know if this is true, although the event was covered over a few sources such as the New York Daily News and CNN Online, so it's hardly 'censored' - S.L.

Stop the Mosque at Ground Zero

June 16, 2010, New York , N.Y.

Americans Stand Up Against Radical Islam in New York - We Will Not Submit!

Not one major network sent a satellite truck or camera crew to this event. Without bloggers this newsworthy event would have remained unknown to the public and history

(I like that part, makes me feel like I'm a part of history. Wait a minute - I already AM a part of history. Well, it makes me feel like I'm STILL a part of history - S.L.)

On Sunday, June 6th, a multi-ethnic, multi-racial coalition of Americans opposed to Islamic violence and intolerance rallied at the site of the World Trade Center in New York City .

9/11 families were joined by immigrants from India, Russia, Egypt, Israel, Africa, Iran and Europe to show opposition to the construction of a mega-mosque at Ground Zero. Others flew in from overseas to speak or just to share their particular ethnic communities' experiences at the hands of Muslims.

These are parents and spouses of firefighters killed on 9/11. The rally took place just a minute's walk from Ladder 10 Firehouse, where their loved ones were stationed for duty that terrible day. Ladder 10 lost seven firefighters.

Crowd estimates ranged from 5,000 (NYPD) to 10,000. The crowd overflowed the police barrier enclosures that ran the full length of two city blocks. This photo shows the enclosure in front of the stage at the intersection of Liberty and Church Streets. The second enclosure ran the length of the next block and can be seen on the other side of the traffic lights.

Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller are the founders of STOP ISLAMIZATION OF AMERICA, which sponsored the rally. Ms. Geller is a citizen journalist and blogger who runs the human rights web site Atlas Shrugs. Mr. Spencer is the author of several books on Islam and head of the influential web site Jihad watch.

Pamela Geller:

"Ground Zero is a war memorial, Ground Zero is a burial ground. We are asking for sensitivity. It is unconscionable to build a shrine to the very ideology that inspired the jihadist attacks at Ground Zero, right there. We are asking the imam Rauf and Daisy Khan to be sensitive. For mutual respect and mutual understanding that is demanded of us every day.

There's a hair-trigger sensitivity in the Muslim world, you can't run the cartoons, you can't say Mohammed, this is offensive. This is an offensive mosque. To build a shrine, an Islamic flag of conquest on the sacred ground the cherished site, of a conquered land. This is historic, this is Islamic history. It's what they do. The St. Sofia in Turkey , the al-Quds, at the holiest Jewish site in Israel . Not here. This is where we take a stand. We must take a stand. We must say no.

I do not believe that the landmarks commission controlled by Mayor Bloomberg, is going to stop this mosque. It's not going to happen. Here's Omar Muhamedi, on his human rights council, a CAIR lawyer, who sued the airlines and the Jane and John Does that saw something and said something on those airplanes, if you remember. That's who's on his human rights commission. It ain't gonna happen with Bloomberg. We have to make it happen. You have to get involved."

Police enclosure on left, with crowd flowing out of park on right. The new Tower 7 and World Trade Center site are in the background. The green tent, center, is located immediately behind the stage.

Port Authority and NYPD officers kept watch over the rally and were well aware of the need for heightened security at this event. One of their own Port Authority officers, WTC Sergeant Alan T. De Vona was on duty at the World Trade Center on 9/11, 2001, and was one of the first to help victims of the terrorist attack. He spoke these words to the SIOA rally:

"It's almost nine years. I'm hoping that America is watching. I'm hoping that America is remembering. Because, make no mistake. September 11 was an act of war. And thank the military that has lost almost 5,000 troops from that day, defending us. I don't know what to say to jar America's memory. I want America to remember."

Port Authority Police and FDNY firefighters are seen here gathered beneath this banner.

The issues at stake will certainly affect the heart of American freedom, democracy, cultural values and tolerance. America is a tolerant country that allows for the free worship of all its citizens. But our tolerance has limits. Do we have to tolerate intolerant Islamic ideology and Muslims who preach intolerant Islam?

Hindu human rights activists Narain Kataria, Prasad Yalamanchi and unidentified friend came from Mississippi and Chicago with banners and flyers highlighting the radical statements of imam Rauf and his jihadist roots.

Pamela Geller is greeted by Hindu human rights activists Prasad Yalamanchi and Narain Kataria.

Bhupinder Singh Bhurji, Pamela Geller, and Robert Spencer. Singh Bhurji is the president of the NAMDHARI SIKH FOUNDATION. The foundation is a member of the Human Rights Coalition Against Radical Islam (HRCARI). HRCARI is a coalition of Hindus, Sikhs, Christians from Sudan, Egypt and Iraq, moderate Muslims and Jews - who are victims and targets of radical Islam around the globe. He said, at another rally:

"Radical Islamists are killing people in India , trying to dominate that nation. And here too they come with violence against "infidels." We are "infidels united," standing together, brown, black and white, against this epoch's fascist movement. Radical Islam wants to dominate entire world. They want everyone to surrender. Islam radical or otherwise. They want to put the Islamic flag on White House."

Because of Islamic terrorism, America and the world have seen massive new security measures become a way of life. Anyone openly critical of Islam, or terrorist ideology, must surround themselves with security, or live in hiding. Those courageous enough to confront Islamism are criticized by the cowards and appeasers of the left who seek safety by supporting the enemy. Moderate Muslims were silent when Theo van Gogh was brutally murdered in Amsterdam, just as moderate Muslims in the United States are generally reluctant to speak out against violent Islam. Moderate Muslims also face great danger in speaking out.

Geller and Spencer will press on despite the danger. They hope to inspire Americans to stand up and say enough of political correctness and work to stem the galloping islamization of America and Europe.

Since I prepped this one for the queue I have become aware that - like myself - Pamela Geller is guilty of promoting the British nihilist Pat Condell. I don't know the full background - whether she is operating out of ignorance (like I was) or what. All I know is that her site ATLAS SHRUGS is worthy, and the whole mess of who you back or support sometimes seems so convoluted and confusing sometimes in this era of instant, unlimited information . . . whatever . . . a quick Google search of Pamella Geller led me to THIS piece which is informative, 100% supportive of Israel - and backed by footage - regarding the recent "Humanitarian Aid Flotilla" stunt . . . I am quite certain my new-found friends Naomi Litvin and David Appletree of JIDF will brief me soon enough . . .

HAVING SAID ALL THAT . . . I believe what's important here is the larger issue - the Cordoba Mosque going up right next to Ground Zero. Regular readers of Blog STORMBRINGER are aware that I stand for tolerance and inclusion of all religions . . . BUT that does not include the Dark Side of religion - where it is twisted to promote hate, murder, terrorism and nihilism . . . and despite my belief that we should make room at the table for the 'good' Muslims in the struggle against al Qaeda and radical Fundamentalist Islam, I see the Cordoba Mosque for what it is; a jab in our eye, a 9/11 Victory Monument to the 19 hijackers who executed the terrorist attacks on America . . . PC run amuck . . . an abomination and an insult to everything that is good and decent in this world . . . SEAN LINNANE SENDS

Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN)
- One American service member who was abducted in Afghanistan on Friday has been killed, provincial government officials said Sunday.

Den Mohammad Darwish, the spokesman for the governor of Logar province, said he learned from locals that the service member was killed.

A second service member who was also abducted at the same time is still missing; Afghan intelligence reports that the second soldier is wounded.

Three U.S. military officials told CNN the two service members are from the Navy.


Pray for them.



Some disturbing information has come my way in the past twelve hours regarding Pat Condell, the British comedian I featured for Saturday morning's post:

I'm not always right and I depend on YOU the STORMBRINGER Underground Auxiliary Force and my extensive personal intelligence network to keep me informed and up-to-date on what's going on around us everywhere, 24-7.

In this case it was David of Galut, Israel who brought to my attention the whole story on Pat Condell. That's his "license plate" to the right there in the coveted BLOG OF THE NANOSECOND box.

Bottom line: Pat Condell is a study in intolerance; the man not only speaks out against radical Islam, he also spouts twisted views on Judaism and Christianity, claiming they are an "insult to humanity", stereotypes all religious Jews, claims scripture and prophesy reflect "insanity", promotes the destruction of Jerusalem, and promotes the idea that Jews should "let go" of Jerusalem.

Basically, Pat Condell is anti-Christian, anti-Israel, and anti-Jewish. This is not the STORMBRINGER way.

Check It Out:

If you're against Israel you're not only against . . .

. . . a cool beach country infested with topless chicks . . .

. . . a land with a mighty warrior ethos, our only friend in a VERY rough neighborhood;

You're also against the land that just so happens to be the cradle of our civilization . . .

. . . the birthplace of two of the world's greatest faiths that together contributed significantly to the establishment of the United States of America:

For all you anti-Israel trolls out there; remember this truism - "If the Arabs ever decide to lay down their arms, there will be peace in the Middle East. If the Israelis lay down their arms, there will be no more Israel."

Earlier today, it was suggested to me that the reason Christians promote Pat Condell despite knowing his anti-Christian views, is that they hate Islam more than they love Christianity. I responded that as a Christian I don't hate I forgive; I saw the true meaning of the word 'hate' in the former Yugoslavia and I am not capable of that kind of emotion.

I have said it before - most recently here - I am tolerant, and I do not believe we should exclude the good Muslims from our side in the struggle against hate and intolerance. When they called it the "Global War on Terror" it was a misnomer, in that Terror is not the enemy; it is a tactic, nothing more. The enemy are radical Fundamentalist Islamist thugs; and they have killed a thousand times more Muslims than they have Christians.

For if we do allow this to become a religious war, then we are no better than the worst of them, we would have succumbed to their own perverted mindset, this thing will then evolve into a true two-way religious war, and they will win, for that is what they want.

This is a basic tenet of the Philosophy of STORMBRINGER.

Having said that, the entire concept of a 13-story Super Mosque at Ground Zero is about as wrong as two dogs f*cking on the White House lawn, and the best thing we can do about it is pull up a semi-trailer loaded with live hogs up to the front doors of the place and let the swine run hog-wild through there.

More to follow on the outrageous insult to freedom that is known as the Cordoba Mosque at Ground Zero.

The Lone Ranger and Tonto are camping in the desert, set up their tent, and are asleep.

Some hours later, The Lone Ranger wakes his faithful friend. "Tonto, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

Tonto replies, "Me see millions of stars."

"What does that tell you?" asks The Lone Ranger.

Tonto ponders for a minute. "Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.

Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.

Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three.

Theologically, it's evident the Lord is all powerful and we are small and insignificant.

Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.

What it tell you, Kemosabe?"

The Lone Ranger is silent for a moment, then speaks. "Tonto, you Dumb Ass, SOMEONE HAS STOLEN OUR TENT!"



FLASHBACK: On May 25, Manhattan’s Community Board One voted 29-1 in favor of the mosque, called the Cordoba Initiative, to be built 600-feet from the North Tower’s foot print at Ground Zero.

". . . apparently it's not enough that nearly 3000 innocent people had to lose their lives in a hideous act of relgious mass murder, but now their memory has to be insulted as well"

The campaign against the construction of a six-story SuperMosque in the vicinity of Ground Zero is big, it is going on right now in New York City in the summer of 2010, and it is being completely ignored by the Left-Leaning Mainstream Media.

The struggle against this insult to our culture, our civilization, and to the lives of the nearly 2,976 victims is a major theme of Blog STORMBRINGER.

We forget so soon?

How can we ever forget?
