I received this from my ex-homicide partner who is still active
in law enforcement circles in the Fresno area.
Excuse the language but don't excuse the facts. Don't
give up your guns, and buy necessary ammunition if you can find it. Be
cautious and alert. Be ready if, God forbid, we need to protect our families and
If You weren't at Rotary Friday. You missed the only
decent speaker we've had in more than a year. LTC John Cotter is the 144th
Fighter Wing's antiterrorism officer. John had a two-part presentation. First
part was describing his job as the units antiterrorism officer. Pretty
The second part was information that will curl your hair. A
Part-time air guardsman works as a checker at local Von's. Two women
in full burkas buy every pre-paid cellphone in the store. Clerk/airman gets to
thinking about it. Goes to Cotter and reports incident. Cotter asks
store for surveillance video. It's scary enough that he contacts Fresno FBI.
FBI investigates, determines these women have been doing
this all over the Valley. Cell phones shipped through Canada to
Iraq/Afghanistan where they become triggers for roadside bombs.
The Shell station at Peach and Shaw. Every time a local
GI goes there in fatigues they are asked specific questions. What is your
When are you deploying? How many aircraft are you taking?
The F-16s out of Fresno fly CAP for west coast. As such
they are the first line of defense so they have the US's most sophisticated
air-to-air missiles. Foreign governments would like to get their
hands on those missiles or at least learn how to build them. Also how many we
have, etc. Two spy groups are working on it, one based at Fashion Fair Mall
(the F-16s take-off pattern) and one based at Sierra Vista Mall (the F-16s
Cotter said the ragheads (But we don't profile.) are always
probing the base. Two dorks in a pickup show up at the front gate
wanting to deliver a package marked Air National Guard, Fresno. No postage, no
UPS, no FedEx, no DHL, no nothing. Just a probe.
I asked Cotter why we haven't seen anything about this in The
Bee, on KMJ, on local TV news. He said they're not interested. Since
Friday I've learned of two other things. My brother-in-law Frank,
(management at Avaya) had a Muslim tech who took a leave-of-absence for 6 weeks in
Afghanistan. After the 6 weeks were up he called from New York
requesting an extension. Frank (who does profile) said, you're fired, and called the
Fresno FBI who were very interested. Don't know the outcome.
A Muslim who owns a liquor store in my former hometown of
Kingsburg was constantly bugging customers to buy guns for him.
Finally one of the guys I grew up with called the FBI.
We are a country at war and the enemy is among us. I don't
care what Janet Napolitano says, it's a fight to the death and we should be
prepared as possible. Brother-in-law Frank has a theory and I think
it may be closer to the truth than Homeland Security wants to admit. There
are a certain number (probably a large number) of Muslims among us who are
awaiting the trigger date and will begin randomly killing as many of
us as they can, sort of a Fort Hood on steroids. I know I'm getting
prepared to shoot back.
Two items of interest. Sheriff Margaret Mims wants to grant
concealed carry permits to all who are qualified.
Columnist Jim Boren, among the most bleeding of the bleeding heart liberals, says it's time for
Fresno residents to arm themselves. LOAD up, you can bet this is happening in
places other than Fresno
