Weekly Update from Headquarters
21 April 2017
Greetings from Tyler,
We saw a similar scene earlier this month, one becoming all too familiar in the
ISIS-infested cities of Europe. That is shoppers and tourists running for
their lives amid an unfolding terrorist attack.
It happened in Stockholm, Sweden, where
hundreds of thousands of Muslims have been housed and supported because
Swedes have been convinced that their guilt for having lived in peace and
prosperity must be assuaged by importing hordes of conscienceless zealots,
deemed "the poor" by the press and by posturing politicians.
Last month it was London,
where a vehicle was used to bludgeon pedestrians on Westminster Bridge on its
way to the gates of Parliament. It should come as no surprise that terror
has Paris again,
this time on the famed Champs Elysee boulevard, again sending locals and
tourists running for their lives. French police had the perpetrator on their

another ISIS devotee dedicated to the destruction of Western civilization and
the worldwide conquest of Islam. As terrorist attacks go,
the bloodthirsty Champs Elysees killer was only marginally successful.
Experience shows that a single terrorist carrying out a murderous mission in an
unarmed society is often capable of taking out dozens, sometimes forty or fifty
carefree civilians at a time, or, as in the case
of the attack in Nice, eighty-six civilians.
But this one targeted a random police vehicle
slaughtering a Paris policeman, grievously wounding two other policemen and
wounding a passing female tourist. And it's
not like the French authorities didn't know all about this murderer. They
he was "radicalized" while serving a fifteen-year sentence for the attempted
murder of two police officers. That little detail should tell us all we need
to know about the rationalization of the Muslim situation in Europe. Let's try
to get this straight. They're saying he wasn't "radical" when he attempted to
take innocent lives in 2001? He only became "radicalized" while serving a
sentence for attempting to murder Police officers? If that's not willful
Police had him in custody only a matter of weeks ago, on suspicion of trying to
obtain weapons and plotting to murder police. But they let him go for lack
of complete evidence, in February!
Now one fine young police officer is dead, two others have life threatening
injuries, and a female tourist has been maimed. Debate is raging as to
whether the incident was meant to
have an impact on upcoming elections, already getting underway for the French
presidency. If so, what effect might it have?
Marine Le Pen is
as the "far-right" candidate, striking fear if not hatred into the hearts of
the politically correct establishment.
She's being accused of "taking advantage" of the attack for political gain.
Oooh, that would be wrong, wouldn't it? It would be beneath elite dignity to
bring up a murderous ISIS attack on the Champs Elysees a day or two before
preliminary voting commences. How low can she go; her opponents want to know.
What a cheap ploy!
To summarize, it was a religiously motivated act. The perpetrator had material
praising ISIS in his car, along with a copy of the Koran.
ISIS immediately took credit for his actions and called him one of their
"fighters." Funny how these sneak-attack murderers are lauded as "brave
fighters." It's a Muslim thing. If it doesn't strike you as legitimate, you just
don't understand. But here's the real kicker. The French maintain a list of
terrorist suspects living in their midst.
There are 10,000 names on that list, and this murdering piece of ISIS was one of
them. Now, there are only 9,999 others that need to be "watched" like this
guy was, and that's just in France. As one analyst recently remarked,
"He wasn't a lone wolf, he was a known wolf." There are
tens, if not hundreds of thousands of them currently residing in Europe, and
there is little doubt that sooner or later the domestic population will have
enough of "running for their lives" as dozens of terrorist attacks continue to

the war drums are pounding in and around North Korea. You can't have missed
widely publicized military parade in Pyongyang, with the

of goose stepping soldiers amid missiles on display. The finale featured
the fictional destruction
of an American city by North Korean missiles. While the
U. S. Navy takes up
positions at the ready, it appears that even China may be bending to the
embarrassment Kim Jong Un has become.
No one seems to know if the missiles he displayed are real, or made out of
cardboard. But the threat of war is real, and Seoul, South Korea and the
cities of Japan definitely are within range of firepower that has been

demonstrations, brought about by poverty and starvation, threaten the
ruler-ship of Nicolas Maduro, successor to
Hugo Chaves. His
government seized a General Motors plant earlier this week, which mimics
similar actions against foreign corporations taken by his predecessor. An
article in the New York Times lists a who's who of corporations that have done
business in Venezuela and its government, and shows that they've had to write
off hundreds of millions of dollars in unpaid debts. And so it goes in this
Utopia of Democratic Socialism. It's a pattern we'll see play out elsewhere.
It's a philosophy being
taught as "fair" in American universities, and one that was preached and
promoted by the losers of our recent presidential election.
The United States may have elected Donald Trump President, but
we are still living in an Obama world. The media, the educational system and
the big corporations are hooked on the kind of political correctness that is
imploding wherever it's had time to metastasize.
P. S. We enjoyed a wonderful crowd of visitors for the activities of last
weekend, leading up to the last day of Unleavened Bread on Monday. Having talked
to Mr. Robert Nunnery, I learned that they had a very well attended series of
meetings and activities in
Dalton, Georgia as
well. We've got an exciting new opportunity for the television program from
coast to coast. If that pans out, we'll share the details as soon as we have
