Colorado: Over 500 People Unaccounted For After Flood Of Biblical Proportions Devastates Towns

09/15/2013 1 comment

Fox News – “As rains bring historic flooding to Colorado that has killed at least four people and left more than 500 unaccounted for, residents were bracing for more heavy rain Sunday.

According to DailyCamera.com, the treacherous weather that has devastated the state was followed by drier, clearer skies on Saturday. But that seems a temporary respite, as the forecast called for even wetter conditions Sunday.

‘It looks like there is a chance of some heavy rain Sunday, and a continued risk of flash flooding. And then we finally dry out on Monday,’ National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Kalina told the website.

Rescue teams are warning people in some Colorado towns isolated by devastating flooding against remaining there, telling them that they could face weeks without basic supplies, including running water and electricity.

Helicopters and truck convoys of the National Guard carried the admonition Saturday into paralyzed canyon communities where thousands of stranded residents were eager to escape the Rocky Mountain foothills. But not everybody was willing to go. Dozens of people in hard hit Jamestown wanted to stay to watch over their homes.

Authorities made clear that residents who chose not to leave might not get another chance for a while. Rescuers won’t go back for people who insist on staying, Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle said.” Read more.

Because Iraq, you know, it’s such a wonderfully secure country today

By Maayana Miskin, INN – “Syria’s government has responded to pressure over a recent chemicalweapons massacre by promising to give up its chemical weapons. However, according to the Lebanese paper Al-Mustaqbal, its method of disposal has been to ship the weapons to Iraq.

The paper reported that roughly 20 Syrian trucks crossed into Iraq under heavy guard on Thursday and Friday, without undergoing cargo checks.

Al-Mustaqbal is affiliated with the anti-Syrian camp in Lebanese politics. Thepaper also quoted an Iraqi official as denying that his country has receivedchemical weapons shipments.

‘These accusations are all rumors and useless and no one believes them,’ said Saad Maan, a spokesperson for Iraq’s Interior Ministry.

Iraqi officials issued a similar denial last week after Salim Idriss, a general in the Syrian rebel group Free Syrian Army, reported the movement of Syrianchemical weapons to Iraq.” Read more.

Flashback: Obama’s Irresponsible Withdrawal From Iraq Allowed Al Qaeda To Drive Iraq Toward Chaos, Lawlessness – “Security inside Iraq is unraveling at an alarming pace, and al Qaeda terrorists there aren’t just pulling the thread; they’re setting it on fire. More than 1,000 Iraqis were killed in bombings and shootings last month, making July the deadliest month since violence between Sunni and Shiite Muslims peaked from 2006 to 2008, the United Nations says. On Thursday, gunmen stormed a policeman’s home in Tikrit and killed him, his wife and their three children. When neighbors later approached the house, a nearby car bomb exploded and killed eight people — a noted al Qaeda tactic …” Read more.

Flashback: Al Qaeda In Iraq Sets Sights On The US, Promises New Attacks In The Heartland Of America – “The militant organization that was once the scourge of the U.S. military campaign in Iraq and probably is responsible for more than 100 deaths in the country over the last few days has set its sights on launching attacks in the United States, intelligence officials said. Al Qaeda in Iraq released a message this week that threatened to strike at the ‘heart’ of the United States, and several associates of the group have been arrested in the U.S. and Canada in the last two years, said American officials, a sign that the organization has tried to establish a network in North America.” Read more.

US: Muslim Brotherhood Islamist Appointed To Homeland Security Advisory Council

Someone who believes that the Muslim Brotherhood should be ruling Egypt and that Islam itself should rule the world has no business advising Homeland Security in any way, shape or form. Then again, the same is true for the Office of the President of the United States

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “There have been questions about Mohamed Elibiary’s true allegiances for years. He was one of the speakers at a December 2004 conference in Dallas titled ‘A Tribute to the Great Islamic Visionary.’ The visionary in question was none other than the founding father of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Ayatollah Khomeini.

When I questioned him about his appearance at such a conference, Elibiary claimed that he hadn’t known what kind of conference it was going to be, although he didn’t explain why he went ahead and appeared there anyway once he found out. Among those who found this explanation wanting was journalist Rod Dreher of the Dallas Morning News, whose skepticism angered Elibiary. The great moderate subsequently threatened Dreher, telling him: ‘Expect someone to put a banana in your exhaust pipe.’

Yet despite all this, Elibiary still got his appointment to the DHS Advisory Council, and has now been promoted. Mohamed Elibiary has risen as far as he has without ever being properly vetted because government and law enforcement officials, and the media, are so avid to find a moderate Muslim who will stand against Islamic jihad terrorism that they will accept virtually anyone’s claim to be just that, no questions asked.
