Global No Pants Ride PDX 2013
These pantsless transit riders took part in the global “No Pants Subway Ride.” It’s an event staged by an improv group in New York City each January and mimicked in other cities, including Portland and Seattle. As the group “Improv Everywhere” explains, “The idea behind No Pants is simple: Random passengers board a subway car at separate stops in the middle of winter without pants. The participants do not behave as if they know each other, and they all wear winter coats, hats, scarves, and gloves. The only unusual thing is their lack of pants.” (Photo by Kai Hayashi/KATU News)

OUTING THE ANTI CHURCH


Hi Victoria,  thanks for supporting BSA troop 22 with your online petition, in contrast to the petition urging no support. Last Saturday I made my annual $50 donation to Troop 22 during the tree pickup. I happen to live on the same block as the creep who posted the no-support petition, and this spineless little worm has been a problem for years, a few years ago he literally attacked the scouts as they came to pickup trees on the street, and they were forced to listen to his rants politely, lucky for him I wasn’t there because I don’t have to be polite and I would have QUICKLY SILENCED the psycho. The little worm and his live-in girlfriend reside at 3704 NE Couch, they are Richard Kuhns and Mary Quigley and need to be outed to the public as the authors of the petition, as he attempts to remain anonymous. Please make this info public, so the neighbors can be aware of nutjobs in the neighborhood, and act accordingly. Thanks again for your support of troop 22…………….John
PS.    been having trouble with email, not sure if an earlier email that I sent to you was received or not, so this is a repeat, hopefully it gets thru.

Mo Mo Trial Day 5: "The Tree is the Bait for the Fish"

Government prosecutors spent another day in a sealed courtroom Wednesday showing FBI undercover video of Mohamed Mohamud taking more control over the operation to blow up thousands of people at Portland’s Pioneer Square on November 26th 2010. It was an effort to neutralize the defense’s claim that Mo Mo was entrapped into the terrorist plot. 

Video showed Mohamud getting excited at the “victory” of “annihilat[ing]” the people and enjoying the irony that they would gather on the busiest shopping day of the year, Black Friday, to see the tree lighting ceremony, noting, 

“The tree is the bait for the fish.”

Video showed Mohamud planning the op, indeed briefing the undercover agents, Hussein and Youssef, on parking, rendezvous points, disguises he’d come up with and purchased (they were  to be City of Portland Public Works or Water Bureau workers), and his plans to go to Yemen after the bombing. FBI agents asked him to come up with a pseudonym for his phony passport. Beau Coleman was the name he chose.



Undercover agents took Mohamud on a dry run to the coast range to blow up a smaller backpack bomb. The idea was to shake him up a little and give Mohamud an “out” before doing the big op in downtown Portland. I wasn’t there for this testimony on Wednesday, but here’s how the Oregonian describes it,

Out of sight, FBI agents had snatched up the pack and switched the dummy bomb loaded inside with a real one. After a few failed attempts to dial the number that would ignite the bomb, Mohamud’s phone rang through.

A loud boom rocked the hillside.
“How do you feel?” Hussein asked Mohamud.
“I feel good, Allahu Akbar (praise be to God),” Mohamud said.

Hussein told Mohamud that if he were going to back out, this would be the time.

“This is just the motivation for me,” Mohamud told him. 

On November 23rd, three days before the planned bombing, Mohamud accompanied Hussein to the storage unit to retrieve blue plastic barrels, wires and nails for the bomb. The FBI agent testified he wanted Mo Mo to feel the nails (which would act as shrapnel from the bomb) to see if he wanted to back out. 

In another video Hussein cautioned Mo Mo on the gore at the bombing site,

“Prepare yourself for what you’re going to see.” Mohamud answered, “I will be more happy than you are.”“He had no doubt. I tried to give him an out,” Hussein testified.

All this time, FBI agents say they were worried Mohamud would connect with one of his contacts overseas and become involved in a real plot. Hussein testified because of this they were worried about operational security, “…the other brothers overseas and in Seattle. We didn’t want him to take action with them.”

Prosecutors are trying to establish that Mohamud was radicalized way before the Feds came on the scene. 

On video Hussein asked Mohamud when he first started thinking about jihad. Mo Mo said in 2006 he began considering, “going to Somalia to join the Shabaab.”

Mohamud complained that his mosque preached peace with others, but, after reading the Koran three times, he was convinced otherwise. A man by the name of Shukri studied with him. 

“We would discuss Somalia. How the Islamic Courts took over in 2006. Then he explained to me about jihad.”

Mohamud said Shukri, who had since moved to Seattle, “told me he was doing stuff for Al Shabaab.” 

Al Shabaab is the notorious Al Qaeda affiliate in Somalia  Members are connected to the American embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998. Andy McCarthy explains in his book, “The Grand Jihad,” how Shabaab recruits young males in American Somalian communities–especially in Minneapolis–to fight in the civil war they came to America to avoid.

The government’s case against Mohamud is expected to wind up before Wednesday of next week. The jury will hear from a FBI bomb technician and the undercover FBI agents agents before the defense begins its case. Next Tuesday or Wednesday, the jury will visit the van where Mohamud and his “Al Qaeda” contacts put together the bomb. Mo Mo’s attorneys say their client will not attend the visit.

Marc sends this to remind the mathematically challenged among us:

U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
* Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000
* New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
* Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

Let’s now remove 8 zeros and pretend it’s a household budget:

* Annual family income: $21,700
* Money the family spent: $38,200
* New debt on the credit card: $16,500
* Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
* Total budget cuts: $385

Any questions? Beuller? Beuller? O’bama? O’bama?

Re: The Sheriff’s letter. Many of my pals are commenting that they would 
want to work for this guy. Many say for free. I did too. Men like this and 
Joe Arpaio are too few and far between, if you ask me.
The letter has been reposted over and over amongst the best of the SERT-type 
retirees and the best cops I knew.
Of course, we hear little from the guys still working, because they must 
keep their mouths shut in order that they may slog on in their (privately) 
individualistic and Constitution-respecting way.
I see these posts on my friend’s pages in my newsfeed and on the Portland 
Police Bureau Retired Officers group.
