The FBI and the NYPD arrested four homegrown Islamist terrorists today, all black. http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/05/20/4-arrested-in-new-york-terror-plot/?ref=global-home No surprises there. All is as it should be. The FBI has primary jurisdiction over terrorism offenses and the NYPD, although it has limited jurisdiction over terrorism, is the second most prominent law enforcement agency in the country. It probably has the best homicide detectives and intelligence operatives in the country. No surprises. And it is no surprise that Muslims are involved in terrorism. It is in the very nature of Islam to murder and terrorize those who dare resist Islam or refuse to convert. It is also no surprise that blacks are involved, as black males are the most criminal and violence prone group in America. Combining them with Islam is a recepite for disaster.
However, the dog that did not bark in this story is the Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Reno Napalitano. Where was she? Her Department has recently published two "intelligence" reports on domestic terrorists. Never mind that DHS has no authority over domestic terrorism. The FBI has primary jurisdiction over terrorism; it is assisted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATFE, famous for killing more Americans than any other law enforcement agency and dedicated to destroying the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.) which has secondary jurisdiction over crimes, like the above, involving explosives.
Well, Janet Reno Napalitano was no where. No where because, first, despite the name, Homeland Security, the DHS is nothing more than a combination of immigration and customs law enforcement functions. It has little or no authority over domestic events, its authority is related to aliens and things that have crossed the U.S. border. Obviously in this case there was nothing imported and no aliens involved. Therefore Janet Reno Napalitano has nothing to do with this.
But, there is a second reason that Janet Reno Napalitano was not involved. Because she doesn't believe that radical Islam is a terrorist threat, much less the legions of Muslims, much less the Black Muslims, who are the most likely to be involved in crime and terrorism. Janet Reno Napalitano believes that people who own firearms, oppose abortion, oppose illegal immigration, believe in the 10th Amendment, and are veterns are the primary threat. And all of those have one thing in common, white Christian heterosexual males. White Christian males are more likely to oppose abortion than other races, religions, or sex. White Christian males are more likely to support both the 2nd Amendment and the 10th Amendment. White Christian males are more likely to own guns than Jews, or blacks, or Asians or women.
So we have Janet Reno Napanitano's real agenda; an attack on the people she hates the most, white Christian heterosexual males. And, she has no authority to either investigate anything they are involved with. White Christian heterosexual males are predominently native born American citizens who do not import anything illegal.
So, while Janet Reno Napalitano did not want to investigate her allies among Black Muslim terrorists, she had no authority to be involved in the investigation, but she wildly claimed that white Christian heterosexual men are the greatest threat to America. Recent events have again proved her wrong, but she will not be detered. She has an agenda, an illegal agenda, and an agenda that ignores real threats to America, but that will not stop her, because she has the bit between her teeth, and the scent of blood, and, like Waco and Ruby Ridge, a price will be paid, in blood, by someone for her hatred and ambition.
