President Obama still cannot connect the words, ‘Islam’ and ‘Terror’
Delano, CA, 06-13-2016 Monday: Fifty people murdered in an Orlando, Florida, nightclub, the Pulse.  Fifty people DEAD.  Friends, we are in the fight of our lives and no one seems to be cognizant of how to go about grabbing the threat by the balls and castrating it.  The enemy is here, it is angry, and they want to transform our way of life into one in which, we cringe in the shadows hoping against hope that it will overlook us and move on to someone else less fortunate than we will hope to be. 
Omar Mateen, a man who lived in Port St. Lucie, Florida, bought guns legally within the past week and then went to Orlando to a gay nightclub where he murdered 50 people and injured many more, 53 reported at this time.  We hear that the FBI first saw Mateen as some sort of potential threat back in 2013 when he made disturbing comments to coworkers.  The FBI interviewed him and found him not to be a credible threat and let him continue with his life.
He again came to their attention in 2014 and once again, the FBI conducted interviews but found him to be ‘no credible threat’ and allowed him to move on.  Apparently, it was not enough because in my view, he self-radicalized on the Internet and pledged himself to ISIS, the barbaric terror group disrupting parts of the Middle and Near East. 
This seems to be the pattern for many who come to the attention of the American people, they self-radicalize as did the two San Bernardino, CA, shooters, Syed Farook, age 28, and his Saudi-born wife, Tashfeen Malik, age 27.  They murdered and wounded the coworkers of Mr. Farook who had been celebrating a Christmas party at the Inland Regional Center.
We know that nightclubs and movie theaters as well as any other place where people gather and congregate believing they are ‘safe’ and among friends are prime targets for the terrorists.  While I hate to categorize any one group of people, Islam is the only religion that repeatedly uses TERROR as a means of attacking its enemies.  All one needs to do is to read the history of the French war in Algeria that began in the late 1950s after the fall of Dien Bien Phu and continued until 1962 when the French threw in the towel because they had had enough. 
The book of which, I speak is “A Savage War of Peace Algeria 1954-1962” by Alistair Horne.  First, let me dispel any notion one might have that being a professional chef means we are ignorant in everything else because we are not.  Many such as me have extensive education and use it as part of our personal enrichment and managerial styles. 
Anyhow, the people of Algeria wanted their independence following the victory of the Vietnamese people when the French surrendered at Dien Bien Phu, the 50-plus day battle in northern Vietnam that brought freedom to the people of Southeast Asia. 
Algerians and other North African troops who had fought with the French at that massive battle and became prisoners of war, their captors inoculated with thoughts of achieving their own freedom when they allowed these particular POWS the right to return home.  The French had been in Algeria and some other North African nations since the 1800s and not intended to allow their overseas colony any independence because generations of French had grown up there and who saw it as a direct extension of the nation. 
The people of Algeria felt otherwise and one of the major tools they used to win their independence was akin to what we see nowadays, especially in the Battle of Algiers.  The freedom fighters of the F.L.N. or the Front de Libération Nationale used terror as a weapon to attack both the local French citizens as well as the military sent from across the Mediterranean to defend them. 
Wherever French citizens gathered, whether it is bars, cafes, movie houses, or in protest marches, the freedom fighters used bombs and sudden shooting attacks akin to what we see around the world where Islamic jihadists operate.  The terrorists also attacked them on French soil and even attempted to assassinate French President Charles de Gaulle.  
They use terror because it works, whether it was a bomb left behind by a nonchalant-appearing woman that explodes in a café, leaving numerous dead and wounded, or a jihadist intending to sacrifice his or her life by driving an explosive-laden vehicle into a crowded place, they do it because it works.  When their enemies know they could die at any moment, it tends to cause them to be fearful more so than they would be if it were a war being fought with distinct front lines. 
The United States is a large nation and it would be difficult for terrorists to disrupt our lives so but it is not beyond the range of possibility should the terrorists feel empowered by creating numerous successes.  At what point do people begin demanding massive security measures thereby giving up all hints of independence to prevent future attacks. 
Moreover, I am telling you that we are living at the crossroads of the future, and do we either start using aggressive measures to infiltrate mosques warning imams that if they fail to alert the authorities to potential jihadists, or do we will strip them of citizenship and deport them or send them to prison. 
Furthermore, do we follow the statements of Donald Trump such as building the wall on the southern border to control who comes across it and do we halt bringing Syrian ‘refugees’ to this country “until we know what the hell is going on?” 
We do need to know what is going on and any squeamishness on the part of the president in connecting ‘Islam’ and ‘terrorism’ is not doing the Free World any favors.  We need to call the enemy who and what it is; they are Muslims, not Catholics, not Presbyterians, and not Jews.  They come in all colors, all ethnicities and we need to scrutinize them in the same way we did the Japanese, the Germans, and the Italians living in this nation during World War II. 
If you know anything about the history of the nation then you know that original FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover kept a close eye on these three nationalities during the Second World War.  We did not permit foreign nationals and potential turncoats disrupt the national fabric, we took proactive measures to thwart plots and to capture spies living within our midst. 
We also need to recruit EVERY American to serve as the eyes and ears of government until we beat this threat to the bloody pulp that it is instead of cowering in the shadows, fearful someone will think us ‘racist.’  I say F*** that.
We will continue discussing this unhappy topic as the days pass because it is one that affects ALL of us no matter what our skin color, our religion, or our sexual preference might be.  We might not agree with one another on everything but we should be able to ‘live and let live’ without despising one another. 
Maintaining morality is important and from what we understand from the FOX News Channel, Mateen reportedly saw ‘two men kissing’ and it set him off on a rampage.  I think he would have ‘set off’ no matter what it was that served as the trigger because he already had pledged himself to ISIS, the group claiming responsibility for the horrendous attack.  
President Obama, quit whining about the ‘ease of purchasing guns’ because taking them away from law-abiding citizens will allow terrorists to conduct even greater and more heinous operations on our home soil.  Before you say anything else, Mr. President, I want to hear you call the threat what it is: ISLAMIC TERRORISM.       
Thank you,
Charles Smithenstein

This is a photo of me back in 1973 while being the Food and Beverage Director at one of the hotels in Bakersfield, CA, located on Union Avenue.  I was in my late 30's at the time.  I am still working at one of the local hotels in the nearby town of Delano, CA, a place that has been my home for the past 10 years.  Our city has experienced marvelous growth and is fast becoming a player in county politics.

MORE TO COME FROM THE ROLLING STONES



MONDAY, JUNE 13, 2016
In 1998, the Rolling Stones released their next live album, “No Security.”  As seems to be the norm for older rock stars and folks, the Kinks called it quits three years earlier while the Who attempts to soldier on, they continue on disappointing numerous fans while exciting newer ones with the massive amount of history.  The tunes on this album come from the “Bridges to Babylon” tour in support of their previous studio effort and unbelievably, the album is quite good.  The Stones perform songs from all epochs of their career knowing that they attract a diverse crowd, folks from the OLD days as old as they are and others still in their teens.  This album is a fine one, one we hope you will check out by using the link we provide you here so you can go to Amazon.com so you can check it out in the format, the condition, and the price that works for YOU—you will be glad you did.
