Why They’re Able to Kill Us

Ted Cruz’s exchange with Jeh Johnson demonstrates the intentional incompetence of our counterterror agencies.

“The video embedded below goes a little under 10 minutes, and it’s quite educational in explaining why time and time again we find jihadist terrorists able to perpetrate murder and mayhem on Americans — from Little Rock to Fort Hood to Boston to Chattanooga to San Bernardino to Merced to Orlando — despite displaying shiny red flags that a competent — and expensive — counterterror apparatus should be expected to process.

Republicans make a big deal of the president’s refusal to use the words “radical Islamic terrorism” in describing these jihadist attacks, and it drives Democrats crazy because they think it’s pure political point-scoring. But there’s a reason why the argument is being made; the video below paints a picture why….

    I previously thought that J.J. was an incompetent toady pig of a man, I didn’t know he was straight up evil.

      I can’t respect any man named jeh.
      Just like fifteen years ago when I got flown in to Thunder Bay for a job interview for a banquet manager position.
      As soon as I was introduced to the food and beverage director, a guy named Giuseppe, I knew I was going home without the job.
      I can’t work for a guy named Giuseppe.
      Needless to say, it was a spectacular job interview fail.
      I’m so glad we never had to live there.
      We’d have been stuck.
      By the way, if any of you are going to Thunder Bay for a visit do not stay at the Valhalla Inn.
      It’s a dump.
      Sure, they may have put lipstick on that pig but you can hear your neighbours screwing in the next room.

        Two thoughts.
        I always thought that Thunder Bay was one of the most awesome place names on the planet.
        Hearing people in the next room screwing always made me laugh.
        Maybe that’s just a personality quirk on my part.

        You could have been asked to work for a guy named “Pekka”, I kid you not, but he would have been better than Giuseppe. I lived there 28 years. For the money, in the Paper Mill. Left in 2000. It has become an incredible shit hole since the Ontario Gubmint started bringing the Oji Cree savages into the town as residents on the tax payers dime. One of the commenters on this board – Raymond H. still lives there. You poor sorry bastard. No offence. Boyka.
