"At the hearing we heard from two individuals whose relatives became radicalized and were encouraged to commit jihad. We also heard from noted Islamic expert Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, the Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy," stated King. That hearing was followed by three subsequent ones dealing with the threat of Muslim-American Radicalization in U.S. Prisons (Jun. 15, 2011), Recruitment and Radicalization within the Muslim-American Community by Al-Shabaab (Jul. 27, 2011), and a joint-hearing with the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee regarding the threat to military communities inside the United States as well as the threat from radicalized Muslims within our military (Dec. 7, 2011).
King: Obama must move beyond political correctness to fight Islamists
While the Obama administration and many members of the elite news media appear confused as to the true nature of the national security threat posed by al-Qaeda, and its offshoots Al Shabaab, Boko Haram and al-Qaeda on the Arabian Peninsula, Congressman Peter King (R-NY) appears to be the "go-to" lawmaker for all things involving Islamic terrorism. As evidenced by his appearances on CNN, Fox News Channel and interviews with reporters in the print media on Wednesday, King presents an alternative to the touchy-feely. politically correct anti-terrorism of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, many within the law enforcement and intelligence communities say.
"Islamic terrorism is the most diabolical threat facing our nation today. No American ever wants to relive the attacks of 9/11. This is particularly true on Long Island where hundreds of our friends and neighbors were murdered on that horrific day," stated King in a statement on his web site.
In his statement, King noted that he and his Homeland Security Committee conducted a series of hearings on the extent of radicalization in the Muslim-American Community. "We must move beyond political correctness and address the root causes of how and why certain individuals are being radicalized here in the United States and participating in terrorist attacks against Americans," Rep. King noted.
On Mar. 10, 2011, King's House Homeland Security Committee held the first of several hearings that focused on the extent of radicalization in the Muslim-American Community and that community’s response to these homegrown Islamists.
"At the hearing we heard from two individuals whose relatives became radicalized and were encouraged to commit jihad. We also heard from noted Islamic expert Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, the Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy," stated King.
That hearing was followed by three subsequent ones dealing with the threat of Muslim-American Radicalization in U.S. Prisons (Jun. 15, 2011), Recruitment and Radicalization within the Muslim-American Community by Al-Shabaab (Jul. 27, 2011), and a joint-hearing with the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee regarding the threat to military communities inside the United States as well as the threat from radicalized Muslims within our military (Dec. 7, 2011).
King concedes that he was heavily criticized by special interests and their allies in the media for conducting these and other hearings, but most Americans supported him according to polls.
"I stood by them because I knew they were the right thing to do to publicize and discuss this grave threat to Americans. That is why I have held additional hearings this year on the Hezbollah threat in the U.S. (Mar. 21, 2012) and the response of Muslim Americans to the radicalization hearings (Jun. 20, 2012). The outstanding witnesses at the June hearing were Dr. Jasser, Asra Nomani and Dr. Qanta Ahmed," King said.
As Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, King pushed both sides of the aisle to pass legislation securing U.S. ports, chemical plants, and airports. He said he also reached across the aisle to pass legislation protecting the nation's rail and transportation systems.

An Inspector General’s investigative report claims that medical staff members at a Veterans Affairs hospital in Florida allowed the body of a deceased veteran to begin its decomposition process for almost 10-hours and when they discovered the severity of the situation they attempted to to cover it up.
I have personally lived as a “split-rail” Christian for most of my adult life. I was open about my faith when asked and “tried” to live according to God’s word each day. But in reality, I had separated God from my life. I went about my day-to-day business using God when I needed Him and leaving Him out when not convenient. This dichotomy of existence caused internal issues within me that rose to the surface as both the inability to control my temper, frustration and bitterness.
The media is saying that Donald Trump has transformed the Republican Party into the party of the working middle class. There was a time, a different era, in the Republican Party however, when a GOP leader who grew up in the basement of a three room house during the “Great Depression” in Russell, Kansas, fought for working-class families. Donald Trump has stood up to the elites and pledged to be the voice of the “forgotten Americans.” Throughout his career, Bob Dole, the Republican leader from a small town where his dad ran a stand that sold eggs and cream and his mom sold Singer sewing machines, always stood up to the elites and fought for the “Silent Majority.”

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
