Hillary’s Dream: Open Borders!

preview-1

“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders. We have to resist protectionism [and] other kinds of barriers to market access and to trade.”- Hillary Clinton

This statement by Hillary Clinton was made to a Brazilian bank, Unibanco Itau, in one of her famous speeches to the banking industry and Wall Street. Speeches that she has taken consistent steps to hide from the American people.

Can anyone imagine what the United States would look like in four years, under Hillary Clinton, with just open borders, completely ignoring the needs of the American people? How many hundreds of millions of people would flood through our borders if the United States had no concerns regarding our sovereignty?  Let’s look at the numbers currently representing our immigration system today.

  • In 2014 there were almost 60 million refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) around the globe. Put another way, that’s one in every 122 people worldwide. Put yet another way, that’s roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Italy being pushed out of their homes.
  • Estimated number of illegals  residing within the US today range between 11.4 – 40 million.
  •  In 2014 alone,  there were 181 million  non-immigrant admissions (primarily tourists, business travelers, and international students).
  • The Diversity Visa Lottery admits 55,000 people annually.
  • In 2014, 1,016,518 foreign nationals became lawful permanent residents (LPRs), also known as green-card holders, according to DHS data.
  • Each year, the USCIS receives and processes about 6 million immigration applications from individuals and employers.
  • One immigration expert estimated the USCIS will receive at least 160,000 applications in 2014 for the 85,000 available H-1B visas.

The Migration Policy Institute says the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, has increased health insurance coverage of immigrants, especially noncitizens, at a greater rate than the U.S. born population.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates the number of people unemployed in the U.S in 2016 is 7.9 million.  Americans forced into part-time work, for lack of full-time jobs, hits 5.9 million. The labor participation rate is at the lowest since World War II.

Currently teachers throughout the U.S. are experiencing overcrowding in their classrooms, averaging 40 children per class. As stated in an article by Teach Hub.com, “Classroom Overcrowding: Not Just a Numbers Game,” says:

“Where we used to lack space, now we now lack seats within rooms. Kids sit on counters, on the floors, wherever they can find a space. Teachers struggle to be heard above the din of 40 plus kids, and kids struggle to hear the teacher and keep up with instruction. While we’re racing to the top and leaving no child behind, we’re burying them.” 

According to a report (“Estimated Cost of K-12 Public Education for Unaccompanied Alien Children”) from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) that came out in August, 2014.

“The total estimated cost of educating illegal alien minors during the upcoming school year for all states and the District of Columbia is $761,405,907. New York topping the list with $147,731,339, Texas with $77,655,584, California with $63,908,143, Maryland with $67,937,602, New Jersey with $57,698,181, Florida with $56,773,589, and Virginia with $54,182,412.”

Now, with just these figures alone, imagine what the United States would be like with open borders. Our education system would fall to overcrowding, our healthcare system, now failing under the Affordable Care Act would implode, our current low employment market would open to hundreds of millions of new individuals searching for jobs. Our communities and neighborhoods would be overflowing with people needing a place to live. Is this really the America you imagine? Probably not, but it is the America Hillary dreams about.

Not all Muslims Are Terrorists But Aren’t All Terrorists Muslim?

shutterstock_378357655

 

President Obama is once again refusing to react to the line that he drew in the sand in the fight to decimate and destroy ISIL. But this time the consequences are deadly. The American people are being placed in harm’s way. A directive from the White House tells the FBI to “Back off Muslims,” even though the facts tell us that all terrorists are Muslim.

In a statement just a few days ago regarding the attack in Orlando, Obama said,

“We currently do not have any information to indicate that a foreign terrorist group directed the attack in Orlando.”

But what do we know about the attack in retrospect? The terrorist, Mateen, called 911 during the attack to pledge his allegiance to ISIS. He also called CNN News 13 in Orlando to proclaim he was carrying out the massacre on behalf of the terror group.

“I’m the shooter. It’s me. I am the shooter,” Mateen said, according to Gentili. “I did it for ISIS. I did it for the Islamic State.”

But after all these bold proclamations from the terrorist himself, our President, yet again, goes on air to deny that this man was a terrorist or affiliated with any terrorist group. When will the President of the United States actually stand up and identify the enemy within our gates and do what is necessary to protect the people he took an oath to defend?

Despite the terrorist attack in Orlando, Obama just days after the killing, opened our borders to 400 new Syrian refugees who have not and cannot be vetted, against the strong advice of the CIA director, John O. Brennan,

“The group is probably exploring a variety of means for infiltrating operatives into the West, including refugee flows, smuggling routes, and legitimate methods of travel.”

Yet despite Brennan’s advise, Obama has admitted 441 Syrian refugees, only 5 Christians, and has settled them in Florida, Illinois and Arizona. Six were placed in Orlando, the location of the recent terrorist attack on the gay community and only days after the horrific attack. Add insult to injury, the White House refuses to share any information on these refugees with local law enforcement claiming they have a right to privacy. What about our right to safety?

Although the debate is heating up over whether the U.S. should take these refugees, the Obama administration has dramatically increased processing of refugees in order to reach its goal of 10,000 before the end of the year. In 2016 alone, Obama has admitted 4,328 Syrian refugees, 4,289 whom are Muslims, the majority were not vetted.

On a news report last night, former assistant director, James Kallstrom, says a directive has come down directly from the White House to “Back Off Muslims.” The FBI is being told by the white house that they cannot go into mosques, or proceed with normal investigative paths against Muslims. The public is told to say something if you see something, yet at the same time, Loretta Lynch, the attorney general of the U.S. says the Department of Justice has threatened to take action against any and all anti-Muslim rhetoric or violent talk. Isn’t this just a promise to go after anyone who might point the finger at questionable behavior by a Muslim, like Mateen, and an attack on free speech by the very department that is assigned to protect our rights? You also have to ask yourself why our DOJ is not taking action against the “Black Lives Matter” activists hate speech, who are screaming for law enforcement to be killed? Can you say hypocrisy?

A florida gun store owner contacted local authorities when Mateen tried to buy body armor and arsenal of ammunition 2 months before the attack in Orlando, but nothing was done. So does it matter when the public raises the red flag or are our law enforcement officers hands tied behind their backs by the current rules of engagement?

Back in December, a whistleblower, Philip Haney from Homeland Security was responsible for investigating individuals with suspected ties to radical terrorism. He had received a commendation letter for successfully tracking down 300 terrorists. However, he was visited by the State Department and the Homeland Security Civil Rights Division and told his investigations were “profiling” Muslims and was subsequently shut down. All his records were destroyed including information into the terrorist that committed the attack in San Bernadino. Even now, the White House refuses to look into the social media accounts of potential Muslim immigrants even though the San Bernadino and Orlando terrorists posted on social media.

Former FBI assistant director, James Kallstrom says we have to get this wet blanket of political correctness off the back of agents. We need to change the rules of engagement.  Training manuals are being permanently altered in the name of political correctness and Congress has done nothing to make the job for the FBI easier. Although the Director of the FBI says they are critically understaffed, the administration has done nothing to alter that situation at a time when it is obvious to all Americans that it is desperately needed.

It appears all common sense and logic have been tossed out the White House window. If the majority of all terrorist are Muslim, then how do you call investigating potential Muslim refugees and immigrants “profiling?” It’s time to put the safety of the American people first and throw political correctness out the window along with the president.

White Privilege And Racism Or Political Privilege And Corruption?

shutterstock_226795639

As long as there are humans on this earth, there will be racism and discrimination. But don’t let our politicians fool you into believing it only happens to blacks fueled strictly by whites. Racism is not a one way street. It is committed and experienced by all. We have reached a turning point in our society where our political leaders are no longer setting an example for better behavior and tolerance or even cheering for the progress we have already made, but are fueling polarization and divisiveness, through political privilege and corruption.

Do you remember a time, only a few years ago,  when it didn’t matter to the majority of Americans who you were, what color you were, where you came from and what religion you practiced as long as we were all allowed the same liberties? Today, the political elite and corrupt have grown in power by fostering an environment that has pitted us against each other based on race, religious beliefs, gender, sexual preference and political affiliation.

Do black lives matter? Of course they do. All lives matter. However, the political elite and corrupt will have you believe that racism is not only alive and well within the United States, but that it is a purposeful cancer that no longer has a cure but has metastasized and must be stopped by literally blaming and removing all whites from our sight. The political elite and corrupt have chosen not to turn the other cheek, but to turn the other way while villages are burned and pillaged in the name of racial justice.

Is the United States a nation that welcomes all who wish to practice the religion of their choice freely and without retribution? Yes it is, however, the political elite and corrupt fuel the distrust of the Islamic religion by refusing to name, or fight a radical Islamic army who screams for our death. A President who choses to visit a mosque that supports terrorism and extremism while ignoring the mosques of the very Muslims he claims to protect that have chosen to practice their faith in a peaceful manner. The political elite and corrupt who have chosen to fuel the hate and distrust of the Muslim community while claiming to foster an environment of inclusion and trust. The political elite and corrupt who demand that the very religion upon which this nation was founded, stop publicly displaying and sharing their beliefs within our communities and schools for fear of offending, while promoting diversity through forced Islamic indoctrination and acceptance of a religious doctrine that goes against our very core beliefs. They no longer support the constitution that gives us the right to freely worship the religion of our choosing, but have chosen to pit us against each other, which further fuels the discrimination and hate speech they promise to punish.

The political elite and corrupt claim inequality and the demise of the middle class lays at the feet of a greedy corporate America,  yet have they actually destroyed the free market system by over-regulating, supporting special interests and lobbyists by taking their bribes, and bailing out the corrupt corporations who they have allowed to become to big to fail? Is it the political elite and corrupt who demonize the top one percent and promise to make them pay their fair share, when they actually already pay over 85% of all taxes? Is it the political elite and corrupt who promise to take down the corruption of large corporations while under the table take their cash in exchange for the very political favors that make them too big to fail?

Do the American people support Immigration? Of course they do. However the political elite and corrupt would have the masses believe that we are all bigots and racists because our citizens expect all who come here to support, believe in and respect our flag and the American way. They demonize any American citizen who insists Immigration go hand in hand with the protection of our sovereignty, our economic success, our continued cultural beliefs and rights to liberty without the threat of our individual or collective demise.

It was Teddy Roosevelt who said,

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American .”

“We must in every way possible encourage the immigrant to rise, help him up, give him a chance to help himself. If we try to carry him he may well prove not well worth carrying. We must in turn insist upon his showing the same standard of fealty to this country and to join with us in raising the level of our common American citizenship.” 

In this day and age,  the political elite and corrupt have blatantly ignored our immigration laws, opened our borders and forced the American people to pick up the tab for those who come illegally. They offer them homes, education and healthcare,  while denying these same basic needs to our Veterans, our true American heroes,  who have fought and died to support the freedoms we all enjoy. The political elite and corrupt accuse us of being unwelcoming and discriminatory while they fight to allow non citizens to pack our voting booths, diminishing our voices and ensuring their own continued lush lives on the Hill, funded by the very citizens they promised to protect.

The political elite and corrupt have created an environment of polarization and divisiveness because it allows them to take control of a chaotic situation of their own creation. When the United States citizens, regardless of political affiliation,  cheer for those who purposefully deceive us and are committed to fundamentally changing our way of life, while bowing to those who wish us harm, then the American people have lost their way. We the American people, from all races and ethnicities, must stand together as one and recognize that instead of fighting each other we must commit to pointing the finger of blame at those who are truly our enemy….the political elite and corrupt inside our own government.

Obamaman, And His Sidekick Monaco Girl, Out To Thwart Evil At Gitmo?

shutterstock_359560856

Obamaman and his trusty sidekick Monaco girl, the counterterrorism chief, are like a dark superhero duo who are determined to stop the evil United States from imprisoning or extracting information from the pesky terrorists determined to see all of Western civilization dead and buried. Has this awkward duo actually accepted as their mission, the doctrine of the very terrorists they are determined to release back into civilization? Are they set on their path of undermining the greatest nation on earth…the Force for Good?

The current evil doings of terrorism have included the annihilation of any human being; Christian, Muslim, Jew, man, woman or child, who does not embrace their evil ways, by bowing to their twisted will of Allah and the Quran. We have seen innocent human beings beheaded, set on fire, drowned, sold into sexual slavery and slaughtered along with the destruction of homes, villages, religious artifacts and anything that represents God-fearing or law-abiding, civilization. Yet with all these abominable acts of destruction, Obamaman and Monaco girl are determined to protect the rights of these barbarians even if it means the destruction of civilization right here at home in the United States. Although these terrorists do not see the rights of others as a viable option, Obamaman is determined to offer them the very rights they deny others. Although these evil doers would never allow the deniers of the twisted Allah Diety to escape torture or death, Obamaman is determined to release these barbarians and enemies of the globe back into civilization, while demonizing those who dare to extract and unveil their evil plans of destruction. Obamaman and Mococo girl will do whatever is necessary to protect the ever-growing power of the Dark Side.

Obamaman will use his assigned weapons, the pen and the phone, to follow in the footsteps of the enemy he protects….do what you want, regardless of the rule of law, against the wishes of the people, to achieve the final ends…the emasculation and termination of the Force in the spread of democracy around the globe, the purposeful illegal infiltration of evil doers and the continued dismantling of the very Nation that has represented truth, liberty and justice for all.

If Obamaman is unable to complete his mission, he is determined to hand over his weapons of destruction, the nefarious pen and phone, to the next evil doers groomed by the mutated liberal nation of Democrats,  ….Calamitous Clinton and Socialist Sanders….each who have sworn their allegiance to the Dark Side, by lying, corrupting and distorting the truth, breaking the law, demonizing, regulating and obstructing the free enterprise system into oblivion, while distracting the masses with promises of free stuff.

Will the Dark Side be able to complete their mission of fundamentally transforming the Force of Good, or will the Force be able to destroy the cancer of the Dark Side that has been growing by leaps and bounds, fed by Obamaman and his castle of evil transformers?

We must all get out our light sabers and commit to a fight at the polls, as only the elections of 2016 will determine our fate.

Obama Shuts Down Terrorist Investigations Calling It Racial Profiling.

shutterstock_84125155

A former employee of Homeland security is blowing the whistle on Homeland Security. He claims political correctness and the Obama Administration is preventing  Homeland Security from investigating terrorist organizations. Why would political correctness stop the investigation of potential terrorists? This administration calls it profiling and discrimination against Muslims.

In a speech after the San Bernadino attacks, President Obama made a speech citing,

“We cannot turn against one another by letting this fight be defined as a war between America and Islam….If we’re to succeed in defeating terrorism we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away through suspicion and hate….. it is the responsibility of all Americans — of every faith — to reject discrimination.  It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country.  It’s our responsibility to reject proposals that Muslim Americans should somehow be treated differently.”  

These words from our President sound reasonable. However, when the same administration defies reason by shutting down terrorist investigations by Homeland Security, because he feels it profiles Muslims, then you must ask yourself whether he is acting in the true interest of the United States and it people. Has political correctness taken over common sense and trumped our safety? At what point does the personal feelings of a group of terrorists become less important than the slaughter of innocent Americans going about their daily lives.

In a recent report on the Kelly File, the facts about political correctness and its negative effects into the investigation of radical Islamic terrorism was revealed.

[Philip Haney’s job with HSA was to investigate individuals with suspected radicalized ties to terrorism. He had received a commendation letter for successfully tracking down 300 terrorists. When he noticed a trend of people with radicalized ties coming into the United States, he began looking into a collection of global networks that were infiltrating radical Islamists into the U.S. A year into the investigation, he was visited by the State Department and the Homeland Security Civil Rights Division.  They said tracking these group and individuals was problematic because they were Islamic groups and it was considered profiling. A memo was sent out denying any investigation tied to Islamic groups. As a result, his investigation was shut down.  Sixty seven of his records were deleted. Among those records were investigations into the mosque in San Bernadino which was tied to Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, responsible for the terrorist attacks in the same city. Haney said if his work had continued he may have been able to thwart the attack in San Bernadino.  A year ago he notified Congress and Department of Homeland Security about these issues, yet the investigation was not re-opened and the HSA retaliated by pulling him from his duties and revoking his security clearance.]

Under the Obama administration, we have seen the dismantling of intelligence in Iraq, an executive order banning CIA “enhanced interrogations” and the closing of “black Sites.  Under the Bush Administration, three suspected terrorsts were waterboarded and as a result divulged information on other terrorists responsible for  the 2002 bombings in Bali and on Al Qaeda leaders. While over 100 prisoners released from Guantanamo Bay have gone back to terrorism, President Obama is still determined to release the remaining prisoners and close Gitmo. Should the United States continue to “play by the rules” when our enemies refuse to do the same?

As all Americans have witnessed of late, President Obama has no problem working up a sweat over the gun rights of American citizens and has promised to pass, by executive order, strict gun laws bypassing Congress and our Constitutional rights. Still at the forefront is the administration’s view that Global warming is our biggest national security threat, and along with Bernie Sanders, and other Democrats actually believe that climate change is the main cause of terrorism today.

The real question is why President Obama has no problems calling out lawful gun owning Americans but still refuses to link self-professed Islamic terrorism to Islam. Now, he has gone so far as to shut down actual successful terrorist investigations because they happen to involve radical Islamic Muslims and calls it profiling. God help us all!

Temporarily Banning Islamic immigration: Politically InCorrect or A Matter of Security?

shutterstock_339907127

Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.  Is this a smart security move or is it just plain politically incorrect as most on the left and the right have spent the last 2 days pontificating?

Trump’s comments have been called un-American, racist and bigoted. However, if radical Islamist extremists are calling for the destruction of the West, should we not be reviewing our immigration policies that are actually legally allowing radicals into our country? Tashfeen Malik, the San Bernadino terrorist,  entered into the United States on a “fiancee” visa in July of 2014, even though later investigations into her background revealed glaring red flags.  Some left leaning publications like the Huffington Post, suggest that terrorists gaining access through the refugee path is highly unlikely, however, the facts remain a stubborn thing.  We know that at least one of the Paris terrorists who killed over 120 people actually entered into the country as a  Syrian refugee while two others carried false Turkish passports.

The actual problem lies in our porous borders, our broken visa program and the seemingly non-existent concern of our leaders as to who has actually entered into the United States. Yet with all these threats constantly being thrown at us, they continue to open the arms of our nation to refugees and an untold number of illegals, ignoring the potential threats that they may pose.

While Trump is supporting the temporary halt of all Muslim refugees and immigrants, and the political elite and their pundits are screaming that this is un-American and un-constitutional, we have to consider the legality of the move.  In a recent column in the Wall Street Journal, James Taranto, says the proposal by Trump is already a Congressional Act, Title 8, Section 1182 of the U.S. Code, which says,

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

The article went further in asking whether this temporary ban would violate the First Amendment.  In response they wrote,

“That is a novel legal question; as far as we know Congress has never enacted, nor the executive branch practiced, such an exclusion. But the 1972 case Kleindienst v Mandel strongly suggests the Trump proposal would pass muster.

In the above mentioned case, the Supreme Court ruled that the government has the authority to set immigration policy, at least as applied to nonresident aliens outweighs any free-speech claim an alien may wish to assert.”

In the end, regardless of the responses by Republicans and Democrats, fearing backlash by their parties, the American people seem to be behind the idea of temporarily halting Muslim immigrants and refugees into the United States. After all, it is the American people who are on the front lines, in theatres, at Christmas parties and just going about their lives, waiting for the bombs to go off.

I think common sense is taking hold and temporarily banning Muslim Immigration is strictly a matter of security.

President Obama And His Minions Have Lost Their Politically Correct Minds!

shutterstock_148650770

 

In a White House press conference after the shooting in Bernardino California, an conversation occurred between a reporter, Peter Doocy and Josh Earnest, the president’s spokesman. A conversation that everyone needs to hear.

Peter Doocy: “President Obama jumped to say that this mass shooting means it is time for common sense gun laws. Does the president really think that common sense gun laws will  deter terrorists now that he has admitted these two might be terrorists?”

Josh: “Yes”

Peter Doocy: “The president thinks that when the terrorists are sitting around planning a mass murder they may call it off because President Obama has put in place common sense gun laws?”

Attorney General Loretta Lynch of the Justice Department spoke to a Muslim advocacy event after the San Bernadino attack and asked participants to contact the Department of Justice or the Department of Education if any Muslim children are bullied in school. She referred to Ahmed Mohamed, the 14 year old who took a clock to school that resembled a bomb who is now suing the school for $15 million for Islamaphobia.

“Everything need not result in a lawsuit, but some things do have to go to that area. We have, as you may know, opened an investigation into the case of the young man in Irving, Texas. We will see where that investigation goes,” 

Outside of President Obama’s opinion that global warming has caused terrorism and that climate change, not ISIS, is the biggest threat to our national security, these are the next most nonsensical statements that have come out of the Administration.  President Obama is so determined to pass gun control that he is willing to come to his own conclusions about the massive attack in San Bernadino before the investigation is complete.  He has announced that the attack might be terrorism but could be work place violence, reminding us of misguided decision by the White House that the massive shooting at Fort Hood in Texas was the same.  Nidal Hasan fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others while yelling “Allahu Akbar” on the base in Texas but was still classified as “work place violence.”

The FBI continues to investigate the couple that instigated the attack in California. The two suspects had traveled out of the country several times to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. The  handguns used in the attack were legally purchased by Farook, and investigators are looking into who purchased the 2 AR 15’s used in the attack. Back at the suspect’s apartment investigators found 12 IEC pipe-bombs, 2300 assault rounds and 2000 9 millimeter rounds. The estimated cost of their weaponry was over $30,000, all while Fayood only made $50,000 per year and his wife, was unemployed. Investigators are looking into who might have financed the weaponry.

Because four of the weapons were purchased legally in the U.S., Obama believes that passing strict gun control laws will  stop terrorists from committing jihad in the United States. He wants to stop law-abiding citizens from having the ability to defend themselves against terrorism while our government refuses to even admit it is here on our shores.

Meanwhile Loretta Lynch of the Justice Department is determined to stop free speech if it offends Muslims while assuring their advocacy groups that they will investigate, sue and prosecute anyone who bullies Muslim children in schools. However, did the Department of Justice offer up the same power of the White House on bullying after other school shootings involving non muslim students?

Meanwhile back in California, Farook’s neighbors refused to call police to report the suspicious activity  by the suspects in fear of being accused of racial profiling. We have witnessed  the White House and the liberal media ruthlessly attack anyone who dares speak in a politically incorrect manner, resulting in lost jobs, ruined reputations and even arrest. These actions are now resulting in the silence of anyone taking note of activity that should be immediately reported to authorities. As we saw in the case of Ahmed Mohamed,  the teacher reporting the obviously disturbing home-made clock at school was mercilessly accused of hate speech and the school is now being sued by Ahmed’s family. Meanwhile the Justice Department is actually considering this incident Islamaphobia, discouraging anyone from daring to report a potential clock bomb in a school next time.  If a bomb in an educational facility does go off, those fearful of reporting it will also be chastised.  It has already proven, as in the California attack, to be a deadly premise. Political correctness is a “lose-lose” situation for all Americans.

For those who claim racial profiling is wrong, we have to look at the reality of the situation. Although most Americans do not believe that all Muslims are terrorists, we do know that the majority of individuals who have committed jihad are, in fact, Middle Eastern Muslims. At what point does common sense trump political correctness? In a time of war, should we allow political correctness or fear of offending Muslims result in the slaughter of millions of innocent Americans before we realize our mistake?

The United States appears to be in a choke hold placed upon it by the very administration who has taken an oath to protect it. While radical Islamist Terrorists are determined to see all of Western civilization destroyed,  the president continues to bind our hands, shut our mouths and disarm the citizenry. Who will protect us?  We are on our own!

Clearly The Pot Is Calling The Kettle Black!

88aa5a9708fe10faa3529b8420fc07aa

A Federal judge, James E. Shadid, a nominee of the Obama administration and the only Arab Federal judge in Illinois, was lucky enough to draw a case involving religious discrimination against Muslims.

Two Muslim drivers, hired by Star Transport, were fired for refusing  to transport alcohol as part of their job, and as a result were fired. They then sued the company for religious discrimination, supported by the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) and won a $240,000 settlement.

The question is not whether they were aware of the fact that Star Transport distributed alcohol, or whether or not there were alternate routes that did not involve alcohol. the real question is why the Obama administration supported this law suit?

We have seen over the past months, Christians persecuted and financially punished for religious objections involving marriage licenses and wedding cakes. When Kim Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples citing religious beliefs, she was sued by the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) on behalf of all homosexuals. As a result, Judge Steven L. Bunning ordered Davis to issue the marriage licenses, threatening to hold her in contempt resulting in possible jail time and monetary fines. In the end, the court released its opinion, leaving Davis with the option of resigning her office, finding a compromise or being held in contempt of court.

The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industry awarded $135,ooo to Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, a lesbian couple, in a law suit filed by them against a Christian mom and pop bakery who refused to bake their wedding cake because of religious beliefs. A Lakewood bakery in Colorado experienced two protests, a Facebook driven boycott and a discrimination complaint from Attorney General Eric Holder , for refusing to bake a cake for a gay couple because of their religious beliefs. This was also followed by the same results in cases in Gortz Haus,  Iowa,  Fleur Cakes in Oregon,  Victoria’s Cake Cottage, Iowa, Masterpeice Cakeshop, Colorado, as well as many others. A Methodist owned event venue in New Jersey lost its state tax exemption and is currently being sued for refusing to host a gay wedding in 2007. Even religious institutions are not allowed to make decisions based on their religious doctrines and beliefs.

In Houston the mayor, Annise Parker, issued subpoenas, demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons involving homosexuality, gender identity or the fact that she, herself, was a lesbian. If they failed to turn them over, she would hold them in contempt of court.

The Obama administration’s attorney admitted that the “right” to same-sex marriage as determined by the Supreme Court, would result in the loss of tax exempt status of anyone or any religious institution who refuses to acquiesce.

“The tax-exempt status of churches which stick with their traditional beliefs on marriage in the wake of such a ruling won’t be an “issue” for the left. Instead, their elimination will become a goal.” (Tom Blumer @ Newsbusters)

Recently, a flight attendant, Charee Stanley,  who converted to Islam after taking the job, refused to serve alcohol on a flight and was placed on administrative leave, by her employer. In response, Mrs. Stanley said,

“I don’t think that I should have to choose between practicing my religion properly or earning a living,” Stanley said. “I shouldn’t have to choose between one or the other, because they’re both important.”

When comparing the Davis and Stanley cases, we see Kim Davis became and remains the target of attacks and ridicule by Obama, Democrats and the mainstream media all while Mrs. Stanley is celebrated as a victim for hers.

President Obama  recently spoke at a Democratic LGBT gala and made it clear that the United States is a country where religious freedom is embraced and tradition is respected, but at the same time stated,

“We also have to say clearly that our religious freedom doesn’t grant us the freedom to deny our fellow Americans their constitutional rights.”

Has the United States now become a place where ones constitutional rights are realized on the backs of other’s religious rights? Will the Obama administration and Democrats continue to teeter back and forth on the “rule of law,” as it pertains to their agenda?

How can the administration stand up for the religious rights of Muslims while persecuting Christians for their religious beliefs? Obviously, Obama and Democrats have become the pot calling the kettle black!

Democratic Debate Sets The Stage For More Of The Same

imgres-1

Anderson Cooper of CNN began the Democratic debate on Tuesday with an important question to Hillary Clinton,

“Will you say anything to get elected? Some Democrats believe you changed your positions based on political expediency.  You’re against same-sex marriage now you are for it.  You defended President Obama’s immigration policy now you say they are too harsh. You supported his trade deal dozens of times you even called it the gold standard, suddenly last week you’re against it.”

Her answer?

“I have been consistent over the course of my entire life. ”Watch the following clip and judge for yourself. (https://youtu.be/clYVEgrTZtE) 

When the candidates were asked about the biggest threat to the United States, Hillary responded by saying “the spread of nuclear weapons” and “nuclear material that can fall into the wrong hands.”

Although Hillary may be right on track with her concerns about nuclear weapons, she also, was one of the biggest supporters of President Obama’s deal with Iran. We all know now, that Iran will be able to develop nuclear weapons within a 10 to 15 year time period. Now that is a big threat to the United States.

Bernie Sanders responded by saying,

“The scientific community is telling us, if we do not address the climate change, transform our energy system away from fossil fuel, the planet we’ll be leaving our kids and our grandchildren may well not be habitable.”

Bernie Sanders, who believes that climate change is the biggest threat to the United States, obviously feels that ISIS, Russia, China, Iran and the non stop spending that adds more and more to our National debt, are not an immediate threat to our very survival.

One thing that all the Democratic candidates agreed on was the continued handout of freebies to all.

  1. Free in-state tuition for Illegals
  2. Free healthcare for Illegals
  3. Free healthcare
  4. Free healthcare for children
  5. Paid healthcare
  6. Paid family leave
  7. Expanded medicare
  8. Free Childhood education
  9. Higher minimum wage
  10. Free prescription drugs
  11. Expanded social security

The obvious question that was not asked  was how and who would be paying for all these freebies? The United States is currently almost $19 trillion dollars in debt. President Obama has been unable to pass a single budget since he has been in office because he refuses to cut spending or reign in fraud or the duplicity in government agencies. Some might blame that on Republicans, however, he has been unable to obtain a single vote from either party in most cases. We have all been told that Social Security is going broke and those of us who have paid into the system may not get paid.  If all Americans were forced to pay into social security, being assured that it will be given back in their retirement, then exactly where is that money now? The government spent it and now expects the American people to let it go. However, we are to swallow the fact that this same government plans on paying for healthcare, housing, education and college tuition for illegals, who have broken our laws by even entering into the country? We are to believe that all public universities and colleges are going to give away a free education to all that want one without blinking an eye? We are to expect that all pharmaceutical companies are going to just lay down and agree to give away free prescription drugs to all who need them? No, all these freebies must and will be paid for by the American taxpayer. Taxes must be raised to cover these expenses or the US will be forced to pull out more credit cards in which to max out in order to cover these so-called freebies. Did we not learn anything from the recent economy crash in Greece? Most Americans are fully aware what happens when you continue to charge and are unable to pay off your balance. Eventually you are unable to pay off even the minimum balance due on a monthly basis. If you can’t pay it results in bankruptcy or financial ruin.

But, the facts are a stubborn thing and the only way to pay for all these freebies is to send the bill to the American people disguising it as higher taxes. We could also go the route of socialism, as Bernie Sanders believes, by stealing money from hardworking Americans and forcing them to go broke by paying for all these freebies, eventually running out of money themselves, putting us right back to where we started…broke, yet still spending.

No matter what party you support, the facts are the facts, and the United States needs to reign in the reckless spending, freebies to non citizens, and get back to hard work, the free market system and stop this “more of the same mentality” that has put us where we are today.

Obama’s Political Correctness Now Okays Child Rape!

images-2

 

Is this really the United States we were meant to be? I find the path in which we are headed becomes more perverse everyday I read the news.  The latest? A Green Beret is dismissed from the Army because he confronted a child rapist in Afghanistan! Since when does the United States accept the rape of children during war-time an acceptable activity? What if the activity is happening on military bases?

The New York Times published a piece detailing how United States soldiers have been instructed to ignore the sexual rape and abuse of Afghan boys because “it’s their culture.” Soldiers have been told they will be punished and/or discharged for stopping a sexual assault on a child while in Afghanistan.  Charles Martland, a decorated Green Beret was kicked out of Special Forces because he came to the defense of a child and his mother after the boy was raped and the mother beat up for reporting the crime.

As reported in the New York Times piece,

““The reason we were here is because we heard the terrible things the Taliban were doing to people, how they were taking away human rights,” said Dan Quinn, a former Special Forces captain who beat up an American-backed militia commander for keeping a boy chained to his bed as a sex slave. “But we were putting people into power who would do things that were worse than the Taliban did — that was something village elders voiced to me.”

The policy of instructing soldiers to ignore child sexual abuse by their Afghan allies is coming under new scrutiny, particularly as it emerges that service members like Captain Quinn have faced discipline, even career ruin, for disobeying it.

After the beating, the Army relieved Captain Quinn of his command and pulled him from Afghanistan. He has since left the military.”

It has been tough going for troops since President Obama took office. Not only have troops been told to look the other way when children are brutally raped, the Rules of engagement, which were changed and enacted by President Obama in 2009, have been blamed for the increase in casualties, which have more than doubled since the Democrat took office.

It is no accident nor a coincidence that from January 2009 to August of 2010, coinciding with the Obama/McChrystal radical change of the ROE, casualties more than doubled,” Simmons went on. “The carnage will certainly continue as the already fragile and ineffective [rules] have been further weakened by the Obama administration as if they were playground rules.”

A new Congressional report is also showing that the United States is losing the battle against stopping the flow of foreign fighters leaving the US to join ISIS. The report says that  in the last 9 months over 7000 foreign fighters have joined ISIS in their fight with more than 250 Americans joining their ranks as well. What is the administration doing to stop these fighters from being trained by terrorists then returning to the United States? A Congressional task force said,

“The fighters pose “a triple threat,” the group wrote in a summary of its findings: “they strengthen terrorist groups, incite others back home to conduct attacks, and can return themselves to launch acts of terror.””

Because the United States is fighting a war against Islamic terrorism, our government has become more politically correct in regards to Muslims and are now changing our very laws to accommodate them.  New York public schools, funded by taxpayers, will now close their doors in observance of the Muslim Holidays of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr. New York has been joined by Vermont, Massachusetts, Michigan and New Jersey.

Parents across the country have become outraged at the public school system which has made exceptions for the teaching of Islam within our classrooms.

This has happened while the same public school systems have now opted to eliminate all mention of Christmas and Rash Hashana from school calendars.

President Obama says we must embrace the cultures of Islam here in the United Stares and that the “future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” However, if, as a result,  we must turn our heads at the rape of children because it is just part of their culture….or we must accept the rape and abuse of young girls who are forced to marry before they even reach their teens because it is a part of their culture…if Islam demands the death of gays and the stoning of women…..then I choose not to embrace these cultures.

“Will Obama’s Legacy will be World War III”

Untitled-1

 

 

Obama made, yet, another speech yesterday. but what made this one different from the rest? This one will go down in history as the United States’ surrender to terrorism. If we have not been destroyed by nuclear bombs, there is no doubt future generations will be studying this speech and drawing parallels to the Munich Agreement, which is regarded as a failed act of appeasement by Britain and France to Germany and Adolph Hitler, a mistake  which led to the beginning of World War II.

Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, who surrendered the agreement with Hitler claimed,

“My objective is peace in Europe,  this trip is the way to that peace.”

At this meeting, Adolph Hitler deceived, lied and manipulated the British leader into believing that bending to his will would spare Britain and France from a war that were not prepared to fight. During these negotiations, Hitler promised Chamberlain that he would refrain from military action, yet secretly he continued to plan his attack militarily. The sacrifice in this agreement? Czechoslovakia, an ally of Britain and France, abandoned by them to appease Hitler. As Chamberlain proclaimed he had secured “peace in our time,” World War II began.

Is this story beginning to sound familiar? Let’s look at the players in this charade.

Adolph Hitler played by Ali Khamenei, supreme leader of Iran

Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain played by Barack Obama

Czechoslovakia played by Israel.

In his speech yesterday, Obama did make one statement of truth,

“Among U.S. policymakers, there’s never been disagreement on the danger posed by an Iranian nuclear bomb. Democrats and Republicans alike have recognized that it would spark an arms race in the world’s most unstable region and turn every crisis into a potential nuclear showdown. It would embolden terrorist groups like Hezbollah and pose an unacceptable risk to Israel, which Iranian leaders have repeatedly threatened to destroy. More broadly, it could unravel the global commitment to nonproliferation that the world has done so much to defend.”

What about this statement?

“Iran will not enrich uranium…..for at least 15 years.”

There is that 15 year limit again. What happens after 15 years?

“Before Congress even read it, a majority of Republicans declared their virulent opposition. Lobbyists and pundits were suddenly transformed into armchair nuclear scientists…”

This a statement from the community organizer who graduated from Harvard with a degree in Constitutional law but has absolutely no understanding of the Constitution he has continually disregarded. But, he and John Kerry are indeed nuclear scientists.

President Obama further stated that if Republicans were to “repeat these arguments long enough, they would get some traction.”

This is obviously a theory he understands and uses daily…..say it enough and it will become truth. (If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor).

“If there is a reason for inspecting a suspicious undeclared site anywhere in Iran, inspectors can get access with as little as 24 hours”

Now wait for it……wait…..then he says,

“And while the process for resolving a dispute about access can take up to 24 days…we will be watching….”

So there goes the 24 hour claim.

“It is true that some of the limitations regarding Iran’s peaceful program last only 15 years, but that’s how arms control agreements work….”

“It is true that IF Iran lives up to its commitments, it WILL gain access to roughly $56 BILLION of its own money….”

“Our best analysts expect the bulk of this revenue to go into spending that improves the economy and benefits the lives of the Iranian people.”

And I have some swamp land in Florida for sale.

“Now this is not to say that sanctions relief will provide no benefit to Iran’s military. Let’s stipulate that some of that money will flow to activities that we object to.”

“…Iran supports terrorist organizations like Hezbollah. It supports proxy groups that threaten our interests and the interests of our allies, including proxy groups who killed our troops in Iraq.” 

and while Obama strongly pushes this deal he says,

“The truth is that Iran has always found a way to fund these efforts, and whatever benefit Iran my claim from sanctions relief pales in comparison to the danger it could pose with a nuclear weapon.”

If Iran has always found a way to fund its terrorist efforts, why would anyone believe they will agree to stop their pursuit of Nuclear weapons?

“And by the way, such a strategy also helps us effectively confront the immediate and lethal threat posed by ISIL.”

Really? I am confused as to what this has to do with our non strategy on ISIL.

And then the real kicker…

“It’s those hardliners chanting “Death to America” who have been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause with the Republican Caucus.”

Did he really just compare Republicans to the Iranians chanting “Death to America?” Is this really the decorum of a sitting President of the Free World? Although we have all become accustomed to his nonstop demonization of one American group or another in every one of his speeches, this takes the cake.

Then the best lie yet….

“….and a more understandable motivation behind the opposition of this deal….a sincere affinity for our friend and ally Israel. An affinity that , as someone who has been a stalwart friend to Israel throughout my career, I deeply share.”

What?  From the man who has racked up a large list of offensive comments and behaviors towards Benjamin Netanyahu, here are just a few.

  • Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family.
  • He has taken almost every opportunity to appease Tehran since it came to office, and has been extremely slow to respond to massive human rights violations by the Iranian regime, including the beating, rape and murder of pro-democracy protesters.
  • President Obama condemned Holocaust denial in the Middle East, but compared the murder of six million Jews during World War Two to the “occupation” of the Palestinian territories, in a disturbing example of moral equivalence:
  • In a speech to the UN General Assembly, Obama stated, “America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.” He also lambasted the Israeli “occupation”, and drew a connection between rocket attacks on Israeli civilians with living conditions in Gaza.
  • In an interview, a White House official calls Netanyahu a “chickenshit.”

I would not call this a stalwart friendship with Israel. It has become painfully obvious to most Americans that President Obama no longer supports Israel, our one democratic ally in the middle east, yet has chosen to cuddle up with and appease our enemies.

Can we talk about what Obama did not say in his speech? How about the fact that the United States, with taxpayer dollars, will be offering Iran a $150 BILLION signing bonus? Exactly where is that money coming from? Yes…the U.S. taxpayer.

Back in April of this year, President Obama finally relented, after intense pressure by both Republicans and Democrats alike, to give Congress a voice on the proposed nuclear deal with Iran. The bill, passed in the Senate, requires the President to give Congress 60 days to review the deal and take a vote.

However, Secretary of State John Kerry claims the deal with Iran is NOT a treaty because he feels  getting consent from the U.S. Senate would “become physically impossible.”

When asked by Democrat Brad Sherman (CA), if the White House would comply with the law if the Senate were to override a veto on the deal with Iran, John Kerry replied,

“I will need to consult with President Obama before answering such a question.”

As we have all seen during Obama’s tenure as President, he has refused to follow the rule of law and decided which laws to enforce based on his personal feelings and how it supports his agenda to fundamentally change the United States.

In a step that has become typically Obama style, the president immediately went to the United Nations for a vote on the Iran deal realizing he did not have support from either Democrats or Republicans.  Again, a President who refuses to listen to the will of the people or their representatives in making major decisions that will affect the United States and generations to come. The standard reply? Yes I will follow the rule of law and listen to the representatives of the people as our Constitution demands, unless of course they don’t vote my way.

President Obama has become so determined to define his legacy that he is willing to sacrifice the American people, their children and their grandchildren, regardless of the outcome.

Like Prime Minister Chamberlain in his so-called deal with Hitler, the world suffered the consequences and no doubt, if this deal is forced through by the Obama regime, his legacy will not doubt, be World War III.

Is This Really The Democratic Party You Signed Up For?

 

url

Recently, Debbie Wassermann Shultz, the Chair of the Democratic Committee, was asked the difference between Democrats and Socialists. She was unable to answer the question;  not once, but twice. Why? Could it be that there is no difference?  I can remember a time when any Democrat would have been insulted to be called a socialist. Now there seems to be pride associated with the label. Thousands of Democrats have turned out to support Bernie Sanders for President even though he is a self-professed socialist.

What is a socialism and why has the Democratic party aligned itself with this destructive form of government? Webster’s definition is as follows:

Socialism

noun so·cial·ism \ˈsō-shə-ˌli-zəm\: a way of organizing a society in which major industries are owned and controlled by the government rather than by individual people and companies. Any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. a system of society or group living in which there is no private property

Are Democrats really lobbying for the government to take complete control of  all businesses and private property?   Are private citizens really considering supporting a candidate that supports socialism for the United States?

As history has proven to us again and again, government is not capable of running a profit-making entity nor successfully choosing those businesses that will succeed. They have tried and continue to try, but have proven over and over to be unsuccessful. The Obama administration gave millions of taxpayer dollars to green companies, though loans and stimulus monies they thought could succeed. As of 2014, 32 have gone bankrupt and taxpayers have lost over $3 billion to the bad choices by government. How can we ever forget the Obamacare website which, alone, has cost taxpayers over $2 billion. A lack of government awareness and acumen has also resulted in the hacking of personal records of millions of Americans, with no end in site, yet they want to take control of all American’s healthcare information and force us into a one payer healthcare system. The embarrassing failures of  the Veterans Administration, the IRS, and other government agencies that have wasted billions of taxpayer dollars  continue to fail and still refuse to fire or reprimand those who approved, caused or encouraged the failures. Add insult to injury, the Obama administration, without any real business success or experience  has already imposed over 21,000 regulations on small business, with more promised to come in 2015.  The majority of which were imposed without the consent or notification to Congress.

Some say Democrats only want the government to care for and give a voice to women, children, the elderly, and those who are incapable of taking care of themselves. But is that who they are truly supporting today?

Let’s look at caring for those without a voice, those who are definitely our most vulnerable citizens of the United States. Babies. Democrats are now supporting the right of mothers to abort their babies up to and including nine months of gestation.  They claim that life does not begin at conception and in fact does not count until the baby is actually  born. However, in a recent interview with Steven Crowder, a political commentator, Abby Johnson, an ex-Planned Parenthood Director  explained  why she left her job and changed her opinion on abortion. She claims that one day, a new doctor wanted to use an ultrasound machine to assist him with the abortion, and asked her to assist him,

“My job with to hold the ultrasound probe on the woman’s abdomen so he could see what was going on during the abortion, and I watched a 13 week old baby fight and struggle for his life during that abortion procedure, and I knew then that I had been lied to. I knew that because of that, I had, in turn, lied to thousands of women who had come through my facility.”

We have seen multiple videos showing Planed Parenthood discussing the dismemberment and sale of aborted baby organs and body parts for profit.  Is this really giving a voice to our most vulnerable citizens? Democrats support a woman’s right to have an abortion though nine months of pregnancy but since when does the law allow anyone to take the life of another human being in order to accommodate their own lifestyle or to simply stamp out what they consider an inconvenience? Even in the light of the atrocities of Planned Parenthood dismembering and selling baby parts for profit, Democrats still refuse to stop taxpayer dollars from flowing freely to an organization steeped in illegal behavior. The Department of Justice refuses to investigate their behavior but instead have decided to investigate the company shining the light on their despicable behavior. When a vote to defund Planned Parenthood was raised in the Senate, every Democrat, except two, voted to continue forced taxpayer funding of this despicable, illegal behavior, claiming it takes healthcare away from women. However, the funding of women’s healthcare still flows freely to every other organizations offering free, and legal healthcare to women who need it.   Harry Reid and Elizabeth Warren accuse Republicans of losing their moral compass and their sanity for objecting to this horrific behavior. Who are these people and do they really  represent the new Democratic party and their new vision the United States?

What about a voice for our Veterans? These men and women have fought, sacrificed their families and their lives to give all Americans the freedoms we enjoy.  Yet the government seems incapable or unwilling to do what is necessary to fix the VA which has abused their power and wasted taxpayer money by refusing to offer the services our Veterans have earned and the lack of said services which have resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of our wounded veterans. Obama and Democrats have fostered an environment within the United States that encourages disrespect and abuse of our veterans.

So who is this new Democratic party truly fighting to support?

They trust  and support Iran on its quest for Nuclear weapons while refusing to trust our own military with carrying weapons on base. even stooping so low as to charge an officer for firing his weapon while trying to  disarm a terrorist in Chattanooga.

They trust and support illegal immigrants, even to the detriment of those who have jumped through all our hoops to become legal citizens. We all know there are good and law-abiding immigrants who have come into the country illegally simply looking for a better life. But how are we to determine who is coming into the country for a better life or who is here to escape prosecution for crimes within their own country, or to sell drugs within the United States or to do us purposeful harm? We can’t. Our borders are porous and our government, under Republican and Democratic rule, have refused to secure our sovereignty. However, under the Obama administration and Democrats, our immigration laws currently on the books are not enforced, and they have threatened those who  follow the rule of law with law suits and the withdrawal of federal funds. They support sanctuary cities that protect criminal illegals who have killed innocent Americans, and continue to  offer up driver’s licenses, homes, education, healthcare and now the vote to illegals all while forcing “we the people” to pickup the tab. Now, a California city is even appointing illegals as city commissioners. Where has the common sense gone.

Democrats and the Obama administration have refused to call out ISIS as Islamic terrorism while persecuting Christians within the United States.  The government has allowed other countries to make their fortunes trading within our borders, while refusing to reciprocate. We have had our economy destroyed, our sovereignty ignored, our jobs killed, our hard-earned dollars stolen and spent against our will, and our freedoms taken. We are required to follow the rule of law all while the political elite refuse to tell the truth, spin the facts to confuse the masses, and under the auspices of security force us to forego our privacy and then force us to pick up the tab.

Is this really the future you want for the United States? Is this truly the Democratic party you signed up for?

United States President Surrendering Flag to Our Enemies!

 

shutterstock_40811836

We have watched President Obama honor plenty of fallen Americans, but the majority of them just happen to be crooks, thieves, illegal aliens or followers of Islam!  What happened to honoring our fallen Military? The men and women who fight for our freedoms. What happened to honoring our fallen citizens? The hard-working Americans who have been killed as a result of our own President’s failed policies or his refusal to follow our rule of law?

President Obama wasted no time in shining the rainbow lights on the White House, at taxpayer’s expense, after the Supreme Court ruled on Gay marriage. Yet crosses around the country are being torn down in the name of political correctness and personal feelings.  The confederate flag has been under attack by the left and the administration as a symbol of hatred, yet symbols celebrating Islam have become more prominent, while Islamic terrorists continue to behead, imprison, drown and burn innocents,while setting dogs on fire, raping young girls, threatening to murder gays, Jews and Christians and laughing while they torture and murder babies and children.  Does Islam not represent hatred and disdain for all citizens of the world? Then why does our President continue to celebrate it?

Not more than 24 hours after 4 Marines were slaughtered by an Islamic terrorist, the Empire State building lights up in celebration of an Islamic Holiday celebration. The end of a Holiday that demands a recommitment to Islam. However, Obama refuses to fly our flag at half mast in honor of the five Americans gunned down by an Islamic Terrorist on US soil.

Obama and Michelle did not hesitate to celebrate and announce their good wishes to all Muslims for a happy Ramadan, within hours of the slaughter of our Marines in Tennessee.

“Michelle and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to Muslims in the United States and around the world celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr. As Muslims mark the end of the month, they are reminded that Ramadan is a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those in need. While Eid marks the end of Ramadan, it marks a new beginning for each individual — a reason to celebrate and express gratitude on this holiday.”

The Administration also actually postponed the celebration of  the United States Independence Day, our fourth of July, in order not to offend Muslims celebrating Ramadan.

Meanwhile on the holiest day of Christians, Obama, at a prayer breakfast,   reminds us of the brutality of Christians during the Crusades and the issuance of Jim Crow laws in the name of Jesus Christ, while suggesting Christians get off their high horse.

While countries around the world are stepping up in the face of Islamic terrorism and taking action against it, our President continues to make excuses for Islam, refuses to identify them as a source of terrorism,  and will not assist our strongest allies in the fight against ISIS/ISIL.

He disrespects our ally, Israel, while supporting the Islamists, who scream death to Israel and America. He has agreed to a deal with Iran to create Nuclear bombs within our lifetimes making the survival of our children and grandchildren questionable at best. While our representatives consider the consequences of this deal, he pushes it through to the United Nations for approval completely disregarding the wishes and fears of the American citizens who he is supposed to protect.

Since the beginning of his term as President, Obama has not only refused to follow our Constitution or enforce our rule of law, he ignores the death of an American Citizen, Kathryn Steinle, killed by an illegal alien who had been deported five different times. And this as well as thousands of other murders committed by illegal felons, while Obama assures us he has secured our sovereignty mocking Republicans who demand more security.

His administration has become a mockery as he attends funerals and speaks out against our police while supporting criminals, baits protesters to burn down their own cities, invites Al Sharpton to participate in advising him on race relations, yet will not take a moment to offer condolences to the family of a young expectant mother murdered as a result of his own failed policies.

Obama has demanded gun control by taking away the rights of many Americans to own guns through back door legislation, while refusing to enforce the gun laws that are already on our books. Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are demanding that Obama and the DOJ actually start enforcing the laws that Congress has already enacted before enacting new ones. Obama has actually prosecuted 25 percent fewer cases referred by the law enforcement agency charged with reducing firearms violence.

We have seen our Ambassador and three other Americans killed in Benghazi because of an arms deal gone wrong. No help was sent obviously to help cover up the fact that this administration and Hillary Clinton’s State Department proffered an arms deal with the very people who murdered our Americans. Add insult to injury, they lied and continue to lie in order to cover up their participation in this tragedy.

Let us not forget “Fast and Furious,” The IRS targeting of conservatives, the punishment of whistle blowers, the continued abuse of our Veterans, the NSA spying, and a long list of other atrocities committed by this administration with no consequences.

President Obama, in many speeches has asked Americans to respect people of all faiths, yet like his narrative regarding “white on black” racism, he refuses to acknowledge the atrocities that are committed by blacks against whites or the barbaric murders and atrocities that are advertised daily through social media by the followers of Islam.

Without a doubt, President Obama has fulfilled his promise to those who continue to follow him blindly, refusing to see the evil he continues to perpetrate on his path to fundamentally changing the United States.

Richard Nixon was impeached for much less. Have our morals, ethics and standards fallen so low today that we cannot even acknowledge evil when it is standing proud and tall on the steps of our White House cloaked in our American Flag?

Finally a Real Leader Speaks! Thank You Netanyahu!

Unknown-1

Prime Minister Netanyahu delivered a speech to the Congress and the American people this morning! Wow! So this is what a real leader looks like and sounds like? I have forgotten how nice it is to actually feel pride during a speech to the country. It felt really good to finally have a real leader stand up and not only speak the truth, but show his love and appreciation for the United States.

Finally a leader who has no problem calling out Islamic terrorists and Iran for their support of terrorism around the world. Finally the history of Iran and their continued assaults on the United States and its people is remembered. Netanyahu said,

“I’m standing her in Washington D.C and the difference is so stark. America’s founding documents promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Iran’s founding document pledges death, tyranny and the pursuit of jihad….Just last week, Iran carried out a military exercise blowing up a mock U.S. aircraft carrier. That’s just last week, while they’re having  nuclear talks with the United States.  But unfortunately, for the last 36 years, Iran’s attacks against the United States have been anything but mock. Iran took dozens of Americans hostage in Tehran, murdered hundreds of American soldiers, Marines, in Beirut, and was responsible for killing and maiming thousands of American service men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan. “

“Beyond the Middle East, Iran attacks America and its allies through its global terror network. It blew up the Jewish community center and the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires. It helped Al Qaeda bomb U.S. embassies in Africa. It even attempted to assassinate the Saudi ambassador, right here in Washington, D.C. In the Middle East, Iran now dominates four Arab capitals, Baghdad, Damascus, Beirut and Sanaa. And if Iran’s aggression is left unchecked, more will surely follow. So, at a time when many hope that Iran will join the community of nations, Iran is busy gobbling up the nations.”

“We must all stand together to stop Iran’s march of conquest, subjugation and terror.”

Netanyahu further explained,

“Iran and ISIS are competing for the crown of militant Islam. One calls itself the Islamic Republic. The other calls itself the Islamic State. Both want to impose a militant Islamic empire first on the region and then on the entire world. They just disagree among themselves who will be the ruler of that empire. In this deadly game of thrones, there’s no place for America or for Israel, no peace for Christians, Jews or Muslims who don’t share the Islamist medieval creed, no rights for women, no freedom for anyone. So when it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is your enemy.”

“The greatest danger facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons. To defeat ISIS and let Iran get nuclear weapons would be to win the battle, but lose the war. We can’t let that happen.”

 Netanyahu went on the explain that the current deal in the works with Iran would not require then to destroy any nuclear facilities and the centrifuges used to enrich uranium, necessary to produce nuclear weapons, would be allowed to continue production. He also shined the light on the fat that inspectors have been fooled in the past, and that they are only able to “document violations, not stop them.”  “Inspectors knew when North Korea broke to the bomb, but that didn’t stop anything. North Korea turned off the camera, kicked out the inspectors. Within a few years it got the bomb. Now we ‘re warned that within five years North Korea could have an arsenal of 100 nuclear bombs.”

Ed Royce, Republican from California,  claimed that he had supported passage of legislation to give the Ayatollah a choice between economic collapse for his system or compromise on his nuclear program. It passed in  the house 400 -20 in favor, yet Harry Reid refused to let the bill come to the Senate floor.  Royce feels the current deal paves the way for Iran to get a Nuclear bomb. He further said,

 “What is incredible is that we would take off the table, in the last session, the types of sanctions that really could have imploded the regime in Iran.”

Although the majority of the House came together to support Netanyahu, there were dozens of  Democratic representatives who refused to welcome the Prime Minister.  President Obama called Netanyahu’s visit a “mistake” that would be “permanently destructive” to the U.S. Israeli relationship. After the Prime Minister’s speech, Democrats responded,

“I want to congratulate Speaker Boehner and PM Netanyahu on their very impressive bit of political theatre. The speech validated all the reasons I said I would not attend. I think Netanyahu got it all wrong…..he can now go home to his campaign and say he lectured Congress and the American people on things that apparently we didn’t know.”

“I did not appreciate the condescending tone…that basically says he doesn’t think Congress understands the threat that they pose…. I resent that he was telling us how to negotiate…. This was fear mongering….he said the deal has to be perfect…that’s like a child who says I want to go to disney land every day, eat ice cream every day, have coca cola, everyday, and not go to school…” 

Netanyahu further said,

“Because Iran’s nuclear program would be left largely intact, Iran’s break-out time would be very short — about a year by U.S. assessment, even shorter by Israel’s.”

Meanwhile, Obama said negotiators are working toward ensuring, “there’s at least a year between us seeing them try to get a nuclear weapon and them actually being able to obtain one.”

According to a report by the Institute for Science and International Security in September 2013, Iran had come within two to three months of a bomb when negotiations began.

 

Netanyahu further explained the downside of the current deal on the table with Iran.

“So you see, my friends, this deal has two major concessions: one, leaving Iran with a vast nuclear program and two, lifting the restrictions on that program in about a decade. That’s why this deal is so bad. It doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb; it paves Iran’s path to the bomb.”

The Prime Minister suggested that before lifting any restrictions against Iran, the world should demand three things,

  1. Stop the aggression against its neighbors in the Middle East.
  2. Stop supporting terrorism around the world.
  3. Stop threatening to annihilate my country, Israel, the one and only Jewish state.

Meanwhile Obama, in his usual narcissistic manner, responded to the speech by saying,

 “Netanyahu,  didn’t offer any viable alternatives. This is the best possible deal to keep Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.”

Trust me…..?

When Is Enough Enough?

iStock_000010295104_Small

 

The President of the United States is now claiming that in order to win the fight over terrorism we must sit down and actually address their grievances? Maybe if we find terrorists jobs they will stop killing? The media are the problem not ISIS?  Climate change is the biggest threat to the United States today? White House Press calls their own comments “too nuanced” for average Americans to understand? The president has no issue labeling Christians as the problem in the crusades, but cannot label terrorists today as Islamic? When does enough become enough?

Recently former Mayor Rudy Giuliani made some controversial statements,

“I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t bought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.” 

Does President Obama love this country? Does he respect the rights of Christians as he does Muslims?

Obama:

“We’ve also seen, most recently Europe, a rise of inexcusable acts of anti-Semitism, or in some cases anti-Muslim sentiment or anti-immigrant sentiment.”

Have there been any inexcusable acts of anti-Christian sentiment? In order to see what is streaming on google, and I found some interesting results.

Obama on the persecution of Christians

  1. “Obama “plays politics” with Christian persecution”
  2. “Why Obama Ignores Persecuted Christians”
  3. “Krauthammer: Obama has Defended Muslims, Where is He on Christian Persecution?”
  4. “Is Obama Doing Enough to Help Persecuted Christians?”
  5. “Why Doesn’t Obama Speak Out Against Christian Persecution?”

Obama on the persecution of Muslims:

  1. “Can Obama help Burma’s persecuted Muslims?”
  2. “Obama Administration Suppresses Talk of Muslim Persecution of Christians.”
  3. “Obama: ‘Get off your high horse and stop criticizing Islamic Terror.'”
  4. “Obama’s New Asylum Decree Favors Muslins Over Christians.”
  5. “Obama Overlooks Christian Persecution”

In his controversial speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama said in part,

“Just because you have the right to say something doesn’t mean the rest of us shouldn’t question those who would insult others in the name of free speech.”

But wasn’t it Obama himself who has called out and demonized many Americans for their right to free speech and opinions regarding his actions and policies? Obama has claimed that Americans who don’t agree with his administration on climate change are “a fairly serious threat to everybody’s future,” and “we don’t have time for a meeting of the flat earth society.” In another speech,  “You go in to small towns in Pennsylvania and it’s not surprising that they get bitter, they cling to their guns and their religion.”  In another, “Ideological extremism and maximalist position is much more prominent in the Republican party.”   Obama has made negative inferences regarding Fox News on more than one occasion, and a top official in his cabinet called Netanyahu a “Chickens**t.”  Are those who disagree, really a threat to society, racists, naysayers, flat-earthers, terrorists and extortionist?

Let’s read Obama’s statement again….

“Just because you have the right to say something doesn’t mean the rest of us shouldn’t question those who would insult others in the name of free speech.”

While President Obama refuses to attach “Islamic” extremism to the continuing beheadings, burnings and abuse of innocents, he has no trouble connecting the violence from the Crusades to Christians?

“And lest we get on our high horse?….remember during the Crusades and the Inquisition committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.”

“Slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

If we look at the controversial comments by Giuliani,  we should ask ourselves, is he really just disrespecting the President for political gain or are his statements valid?  Have we ever had a president of the United States so determined to fundamentally change this country? Have we ever had a President who demonizes the majority of Americans because of their differing opinions?  Have we ever had a President who has lied to the American people as often and as much as Obama? Have we ever had a President who has been connected to so many scandals and corruption? Are you better off today then you were 6 years ago? Do you feel safer now than you did 6 years ago? Do you really feel, by his own words and actions, that this President truly loves this nation?

“Without Obama We Would Never Know……..

 

shutterstock_203733379

If it were not for President Obama and Democrats, would you know that the Taliban is not a terrorist organization but just an “armed insurgency?”

The Taliban shot Malala Yousafzai, a 16-year-old Pakistani child advocate for girl’s education, in the face because she simply wanted an education. Then how could we forget the December attack in Pakistan where the Taliban killed 145 people, mostly children in their school uniforms.  What about the story of the 7-year-old Afghanistan boy who was hung by the Taliban simply because he had American dollars in his pocket? But the Obama administration and Democrats want to educate the American people in the facts….they are not terrorists!

If it were not for President Obama and Democrats, we would not know that trading 5 Taliban terrorists, for Bo Bergdahl, a deserter, is not negotiating with terrorists. Yet when Jordan decides to trade a female terrorist responsible for a 2005 suicide bomb attack for a Japanese war veteran held by ISIS, the White House says,

“We don’t pay ransom, we don’t give concessions to terrorist organizations.”

“We don’t get into negotiation with terrorists. We don’t pay ransom because that cash than fuels further kidnappings, which just continue to exacerbate the problem. So, we’re not going to do that.” (Fox News Sunday)

Meanwhile, it has been suggested that the Army has plans to charge Bergdahl with desertion. And one of the terrorists exchanged by Obama for Bergdahl is now a top ISIS commander.

As reported by the National Report,

“Mullah Mohammed Fazi, one of the five Guantanamo Bay detainees released by the Obama administration in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl, has been confirmed to be currently in Iraq. Fazi, the Taliban’s former Defense Minister, is serving in a leadership capacity within the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.”

If it were not for President Obama and Democrats, would you know that ISIS/ISIL, who behead innocent men, women and children from every religious faction, while praising Allah, have nothing to do with Islam? I mean how we would ever know this if we did not have Obama and Democrats telling us so?

Let’s look at our recent and continuing economic and foreign policy lessons we continue to learn from President Obama and Democrats.  Direct from the horse’s mouth, at the recent SOTU, (State of the Union):

Obama:

“America, in 2014, had a “breakthrough year.”  “Our economy is growing and creating jobs at the fastest pace since 1999” “Our employment rate is lower that it was before the financial crisis.”

The Reality:

Unemployment is at 5.6%, yet if you added back into the mix all the Americans who have dropped out of the workforce because they have given up trying to find a job, we would be looking at an unemployment rate of 9.1%. According to the Economic Policy Institute, over 6 million Americans have quit looking for jobs that are not there.  They say,

“The unemployment rate published, (5.6%) drastically understates the weakness of job opportunities.”

But how would those unemployed Americans sitting at home, disillusioned and hopeless in rebuilding their lives because the economy still stinks, know that the economy and the job market is really GREAT, if Obama didn’t tell us this?

Obama:

“Tonight for the first time since 9/11 our combat mission in Afghanistan, [Iraq] is over….The Shadow of crisis has passed and the State of the Union is strong.”

The Reality:

According to the Huffington Post, a liberal alternative to the Drudge Report,

“Can we afford another failed state in Afghanistan?”

“In the annals of U.S. foreign policy, Afghanistan stands as a typical case where a flawed military strategy has sidelined viable political solutions.  The U.S. has had a war strategy, but no political strategy or a clear exit strategy.”

“Many of the warlords who Balkanized the country in the 1990s act as high-ranking officials and parliamentarians, ranks they have acquired through the flagrant abuse of ethnic loyalties and tribal quotas. Furthermore, some of these warlords-turned-demagogues have been implicated in crimes against humanity, but remain immune to prosecution with the tacit approval of the United States.”

And from Newsweek,

“A leading politician in Iraq has warned that unless the United States and its allies can quickly liberate the parts of Iraq under ISIS control, people there may soon learn to live with the militants. “Time, is not on our side.”

And from the The Boston Globe,

“The recent terrorist attack in Paris against the Charlie Hebdo magazine and a kosher supermarket stunned the city. For three days we watched the drama unfold; the brazen assault and massacre, the desperate search for the brothers, the subsequent standoff, and a deadly hostage situation that targeted the Jewish community. The conclusions to both crises were violent and virtually simultaneous.”

As stated in the Business Insider in July of 2014,

“The most extreme faction of Al Qaeda is winning, and it’s leading to the destruction of Iraq.”

 Obama:

“We believed we could reduce our dependence on foreign oil and protect our planet. And today, America is number one in oil and gas. America is number one in wind power. Every three weeks we bring online as much solar power as we did in all of 2008.  And thanks to lower gas prices and higher fuel standards, the typical family this year should save $750 at the pump.”

The Reality:

From the Washington Times,

“President Obama has gone to war. But not with the Islamic State group, Iran, North Korea or any foreign threat. Mr. Obama, at the urging of environmental extremists, has declared war on America’s oil and natural gas producers. His weapon of choice is a new Environmental Protection Agency regulation to cut methane emissions by up to 45 percent by 2025.”

From the Wall Street Journal,

 “The Obama administration said Tuesday it would veto legislation that would authorize the Keystone XL pipeline.”

From the Washington Examiner,

“Oil, natural gas and coal production in this country are at record levels. But this is despite Obama’s policies, not, as he implied, because of them. Oil, natural gas and coal production are zooming upwards on private land, but plummeting on government lands.”

“Immediately after taking office in 2009, Obama canceled 77 leases for oil and gas drilling in Utah. Then in January 2010, Obama issued new regulations further restricting energy development on all federal lands.”

“Obama instituted not one but two comprehensive drilling bans in the Gulf of Mexico, the first of which was declared illegal by a federal judge. After lifting his second ban, Obama refused to issue permits for any new drilling in the Gulf, which EIA estimated cut domestic offshore oil production by 13 percent that year alone.”

“Obama has leased less than half as many offshore acres as President Clinton did at the same point in his tenure. And Obama is blocking access to 19 billion barrels of oil in the Pacific and Atlantic coasts and the eastern Gulf of Mexico, another 10 billion barrels estimated in the Chukchi Sea off the Alaskan coast, and another 10 billion barrels of oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve.”

“Even so, the United States is undergoing an energy revolution, making the U.S. dramatically less dependent on oil from hostile foreign nations. Increased natural gas production is making manufacturing here competitive again due to lower production costs, which in turn fuels a manufacturing employment expansion the country has not seen in decades. It’s the fruit of Americans working together voluntarily in the private sector. Think what they could do if Obama and the bureaucrats would get out-of-the-way.”

From CNN,

Solyndra, Abound Solar, Beacon Power, and Ener1, Obama’s green energy,  firms that all received money from the stimulus totaling over $1 billion dollars, have all gone bankrupt.

Obama:

“Will we allow ourselves to be sorted into factions and turned against one another–or will we recapture the sense of common purpose that has always propelled America forward?” 

The Reality:

From the National Review:

“Considered politically toxic by Bill Clinton and George W. Bush,  Al Sharpton has been enthusiastically embraced by President Obama. He has bragged about helping to pick a new attorney general and communed with the current one. In fact, a much-quoted Politico profile last summer, described Al Sharpton as Obama’s “go-to man on race.”

From Breitbart:

“President Barack Obama invited Al Sharpton to a series of White House meetings on Monday concerning the Ferguson riots, but he did not feel it was necessary to give someone from the Ferguson police department a seat at the table.” 

“Obama also met with two “youth leaders” from Ferguson. Obama later cited their stories and said that hearing “young people feeling marginalized and distrustful even after they’ve done everything right” only “violates” his “belief in what America can do.””

Meanwhile, protestors in Ferguson trashed, vandilized and destroyed over 40 business in Ferguson in protest.

A few of the many other headlines on the Ferguson riots:

  • “Elderly Man Attacked With His Own Oxygen Tank and Carjacked By Protesters.”
  • “Ferguson Rioters Attack Little Kids At Christmas tree Lighting Event.”
  • “Reporter Attacked, Robbed at Gunpoint in Ferguson; Protesters Set his Car on Fire”
  • “Pack of Teens Beat Man to Death Near Ferguson”
  • “Rioters Attack Police Car in Ferguson”
  • “Micheal Brown’s Mother to Face Robbery charges.”
  • “Fox Reporter Attacked by Masked Man in Ferguson”
  • “Officer Violently Attacked, Shot During Ferguson-Related Riot”

“Obama also met with two “youth leaders” from Ferguson. Obama later cited their stories and said that hearing “young people feeling marginalized and distrustful even after they’ve done everything right” only “violates” his “belief in what America can do.””

I guess we wouldn’t know that the Ferguson protesters did everything right if it weren’t for President Obama, Eric Holder and Al Sharpton clearing that up for us.

From The National Review:

 “President Obama said that police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, “acted stupidly” in arresting a prominent black Harvard professor last week after a confrontation at the man’s home.”

From the Huffington Post,

“Obama on Trayvon Martin Case: If I had a son he would look like Trayvon.”(regarding Ferguson, prior to investigations)

“We fund a lot of jurisdictions all across the country. And if we can identify best practices, then for us to be able to say, you need to adopt these best practices, and if you don’t, then perhaps some of the funding that’s available around some things that law enforcement cares about become less available,” Obama said.

“We’re going to provide more to folks who are doing the right thing and we’re going to be investigating folks who are not doing the right thing.”

The American people have been lied to over and over and over again by this President and members of the Democratic party. Decisions are no longer made in the best interest of the country, but in the best interest of politics. The current administration’s cabinet has been filled with Obama cheerleaders who are  determined to continue with President Obama’s agenda to “fundamentally transform the United States” into something we no longer even recognize…..A Nation that now has no morals, has shut out God and welcomed in Islam, where lying is the new truth,  part time work is now the norm, and we, the taxpayer are responsible for funding every illegal in the country to make sure they have a homes, food, education and healthcare, while we go without.  Add insult to injury,  Webster’s dictionary has to be rewritten because you are not allowed to use half the words in it for fear of offending someone!

It is time for change….

Obama and Occam’s Razor

shutterstock_178474667

Occam’s Razor?  A problem solving principle devised by William of Ockham, a logician in the 14th century and is still used today.  In its simplest form, it states,

“When you have competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better.”

Now, lets ask the questions,

  • Why would Obama continue to release dangerous terrorist prisoners from Guantanamo Bay, when the world is at war with Islamic terrorism?

 

  • Why Does President Obama and his administration refuse to call the attacks by terrorists, Islamic terrorism?

 

  • Why would President Obama tell the world, “the future does not belong to those who slander Mohammed?”

 

  • Why would President Obama refuse to secure our borders when terrorists are able to easily enter the U.S from our Southern border?

 

  • Why, in this atmosphere of Islamic terrorism, would President Obama actually increase the number of visas offered to Muslim countries? Visas that once offered are not tracked, allowing applicants to settle in our country undetected?

 

  • Why are known members of terrorist organizations allowed to keep their United States passports?

 

  • Why does President Obama continue to ignore the dangerous tactical and ideological convergence between the Islamic State terrorists and Boko Haram?

 

  • Why has President Obama continued to support the false narrative that al Qaeda has been decimated while they have claimed responsibility for the recent massacre in France?

 

  • Why would President Obama, a self-proclaimed Christian claim, in a perfect Arabic accent, that the “Islamic Call to prayer at sunset is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth?”

 

  • Why would President Obama bow to King Abdullah, a Muslim, yet not to Queen Elizabeth, a Christian?

 

  • Why does President Obama seem so intent on criticizing Netanyahu and Israel?

 

Let’s look at some facts regarding Barrack Obama’s past connections.

  • Obama’s grandfather, Hussin Onyango Obama (1895-1979) was a Muslim.
  • Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr. identified himself as a Muslim, but spent much of his adult life as an atheist.
  • Obama’s stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, from Indonesia, practiced a form of Islam.
  • Obama worked on the Developing Communities Project which was an organization based on tradition of Marxist Saul Alinsky.
  • Obama had a fundraiser hosted by Bill Ayers who was part of the “Weather Underground,” labeled a domestic terrorist group by the FBI.
  • Obama’s role model, Frank Marshall Davis (1905-1987) was a communist.
  • Obama attended the church of Jeremiah Wright for 20 years.
  • Reverend Wright said, the U.S. could not accept a black man as president of  “this racist United States of America,” “the United States of White America,” and “the U.S. of KKK-A.  *
  • Winfrey, who joined Wright’s church in the mid-’80s, eventually left in the early ’90s. An article entitled “Something Wasn’t Wright” in the May 12, 2008, issue of Newsweek explains that she knew Wright’s rants were too radical for her fans. Interestingly, though Oprah endorsed Obama and helped catapult his books to the top of the bestseller lists, she has declined to endorse him for 2012.*
  • Obama never explicitly rejected the black power, anti-capitalist core of Wright’s teachings. That includes beliefs like Wright’s credo that “White folks’ greed runs the world in need.” For all Obama’s talk, he can’t claim to never have heard Wright say it. Obama titled his second book, The Audacity of Hope, after the very sermon where that line appears.*
  • Candidate Obama’s declared intention to “spread the wealth around” echoed what he had absorbed at those Trinity sermons. Now President Obama’s thinking clearly shows the same imprint, as when he preaches that “at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”*
  • Hillary Clinton–not John McCain– used Wright as a campaign issue against Obama.*
  • Obama’s second book, The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts of Reclaiming the American Dream’s title was derived from a sermon by Obama’s former pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright.*
  • Obama often mentioned the black sociologist Chancellor Williams’s jeremiad, The Destruction of Black Civilization, which argues that African civilization was destroyed by the acquisitiveness–the capitalist nature–of white European civilization. *
  • Obama and wife Michelle were married in a ceremony in 1992 presided over by Reverend Jeremiah Wright.*
  • Obama’s daughters, Malia Ann and Natasha were baptised by Reverend Jeremiah Wright.*
  • Obama had a close relationship with Columbia professor Rashid Khalidi, who previously worked for the PLO, classified as a terrorist group by the State Department.
  • Another Obama mentor, Tony Rexko is now serving a 10 year federal prison sentence on convictions of fraud and bribery.
  • Rexko and his Arab-American business associates donated hundreds of thousands of dollars too Obama’s campaign.
  • Khalid al-Mansour, an activist and outspoken enemy of Israel, was the key backer for Obama and his acceptance into Harvard. At the time he recommended Obama to Harvard, al-Mansour was representing top members of the Saudi Royal family seeking to exert influence in the United States. He was also advising Prince Alwaleed, the nephew of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, who offered $10 million to rebuild Manhattan after 9/11.  Mayor Giuliani refused the money because Alwaleed made public statements saying U.S. policies contributed to the 9/11 attack.
  • Sen. John McCain publicly chastised The Los Angeles Times  for not releasing a videotape the newspaper said it possessed of a 2003 dinner for Khalidi, where Obama reportedly accused Israel of carrying out a “genocide” against the Palestinians.
  • Obama had close ties with Louis Farrakhan, top deputy of the Nation of Islam. In Farrakhan’s own words, he said of Obama, “we had an open line between us to discuss policy and strategy either directly or through intermediaries.” 
  • Farrakhan has called Jews “bloodsuckers,” “satanic” and accused them of running the slave trade. He has labeled gays as “degenerates.” In a 2006 speech, the ADL again condemned Farrakhan when he said: “These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength. … It’s the wicked Jews the false Jews that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality. It’s wicked Jews, false Jews that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic!”
  • Barrack and Michelle Obama attended several dinners of the AAAN (Arab American Action Network), whose Executive director was Hatem Abudayyeh. Hatem is on the White House logs attending policy briefings and his home was later raided by the FBI for ties to funding the Liberation of Palestine and other Middle Eastern terrorist groups.
  • George Soros a Liberal Democratic billionaire donated over $1 million dollars to Obama’s campaign for President and it was recently discovered that he also gave over $33 million to fund the protestors and looters in Ferguson, MO.

Is any of this starting to concern you?  Are any of President Obama’s connections starting to answer the questions posed above?  If not, they should.

If we were to apply Occam’s Razor theory to the questions asked and the connections Obama has in his life, the simplest answer would be that Barrack Obama is actually a Muslim and has no love for the United States and the free enterprise system or our Constitution.

The scariest fact here? All of these connections were well-known before 52% of Americans voted for Barack Obama!

Islamic Cleric: “Islam is Not a Religion of Peace!”

imgres

 

There was a post trending on Facebook yesterday. A commentary by a British Muslim Cleric, Anjem Choudary, in the USA Today, defending the Paris terrorist attack on the publication, Charlie Hebdo.

Why would the USA Today give a voice to a Muslim cleric who thinks the Paris attack was well deserved? Why does the US press always give front page coverage to those who have done harm, intend to do harm, or support those who do harm? Can they not grasp the concept  that giving a voice to our enemies gives them the power they believe they deserve? Does the media understand that when they give our enemies a voice it allows them to draw in more support from the very people who want us dead?

In the opinion piece Choudry claimed that people “know the consequences”of speaking ill of Mohammad. He further confirmed what we, in the public, have known all along, but our leadership refuses to acknowledge, “Contrary to popular misconception, Islam does not mean peace but rather means submission to the commands of Allah alone. Therefore Muslims do not believe in the concept of freedom of expression, as their speech and actions are determined by divine revelation and not based on people’s desires.”

What is a Muslim cleric? The dictionary defines it as a “ulema,” meaning,  “Muslim scholars trained in Islam and Islamic law.”

So now, directly from the mouth of a Muslim scholar trained in Islam and Islamic law,  Choudry has confirmed that Islam is NOT a religion of peace. He  has confirmed that believers in Islam are required to do what the Quran demands they do…..protect Muhammad at any cost.  This includes the beheading and murder of all those who refuse to convert.  It means they feel justified in the murder of innocents, even children, who refuse to convert to Islam.  How can this be ignored by our leadership. How could it be stated any more clearly?  It stands in total conflict to the dialog President Obama and other world leaders continue to push to their citizens. A continued, misguided belief that puts every individual  of the world in dire danger.  It is a philosophy and ideology that, no matter how much they deny it, will eventually be the death of us all!

When a leader of the Muslim community stands up and defends the murder of innocents in the name of Islam, we all need to listen, take him at his word, and respond appropriately.  Stop the madness. Call a spade a spade and take action to stop the ideaology….the religion of hate and murder…. within our own borders.

These leads to the obvious question as to why, in times of increased terrorist activity, that the Obama administration would welcome in a record number of Muslims.  In a recent article by Investors.com it was written  that the “Center for Immigration Studies reported between 2010 and 2013, the United States has imported more people from Muslim countries than Central America and Mexico combined.”

What if a portion of the current 300,000 new Muslim immigrants, decide to follow the cleric Choudry and decide to do whatever is necessary to defend Mohammad? How many of these immigrants are reading his opinion piece in the USA Today and as a result decide to ramp up efforts to destroy the infidels? With the number of Muslim immigrants increasing every year, we could be looking at far worse results than London and Paris combined.  If these immigrants decided to band together, or even small groups decide to do what they can to further the Islamic directive, then we will be looking at car bombings, suicide bombings, and a slew of hostage taking, beheadings and just plain havoc here on U.S. soil.

Add insult to injury,  the Obama Administration is  increasing Muslim immigration visas and he has refused to enforce deportation laws.   His recent illegal amnesty does not just apply to the “dreamers,” or those who are here getting an education and wanting to become a productive part of our society.  It includes all those here illegally, including those who view us as infidels.  As a result, anyone here supporting  Islamic terrorists will now obtain documentation, driver’s licenses and work permits, and those here on visas are not tracked after their expire. They just integrate themselves into our society, overlooked and forgotten, and like the 19 terrorists who killed 3000 Americans on 9/11 are left alone to plot their revenge.

France is now suffering the consequences of their irresponsible, “politically correct” immigration policies.  The population of Muslims in France has now reached 10% of its population with over 27% supporting the Islamic State. They have radicalism spreading throughout the country creating a situation that can not be turned back.  If our leaders do not stand up and take note of the dramatic results of these “politically correct” immigration policies then we in the United States will soon be suffering the same consequences.

We ask ourselves why the Muslim population and the Muslim leaders have not taken a stand against the radical terrorist events that have been perpetrated by those within their own religion? In a conversation with a knowledgeable source regarding middle eastern relations, I was told,

“American Muslims are not standing up and screaming because they can’t. It is a philosophically impossible for them to fully reject… killing cartoonists who lampooned their Prophet because the Quran clearly states that the penalty for such things, is summary death.  The Quran is the unalterable word of God, in, evidently, God’s home language, so there is no wiggle room about interpreting it. If it’s in the book, it is true.” 

 “Islam is antithetical to Western Democracy. The idea of a Caliphate is essential to Islam. A Caliphate requires submission of religion, commerce, politics, and everything else in your life to a single ruler. There is no role for opposition. There is no role for an individual to say, “Hang on a minute, something isn’t quite right about this,” because such a statement is, by definition, heresy. And heresy is punishable by death by the people who get to define heresy.”

Since our leaders refuse to take off their rose color glasses and SEE the real threat that is facing the people of the world, it is time for the people to stand up and say enough!! Contact your representative, Democrat, Republican or Independent, and let them know we want and NEED immigration reform and border control NOW, before it is too late!

Islamic Terrorists In Paris Slaughter, NOT Connected to Islam?

 

images

Howard Dean, a former Democratic Presidential candidate, made controversial comments yesterday regarding the horrific attack and murder of 12 people at The publication, Charlie Hebdo in Paris yesterday.

“I stopped calling these people Muslim terrorists. They’re about as Muslim as I am.”

Why are so many Democrats, including our President so determined NOT to label these terrorists as “Muslim,” or   “Islamic?”  Back in September of 2012, President Obama said,

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”…..”As Ghandi said, Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.”

So is the murderous behavior of Islamic terrorists towards anyone who has differing religious beliefs other than Islam not characterized as intolerance?  Is it not an obstacle to the democratic spirit of our Nation?

Have we become a country so caught up with political correctness that we are willing to turn our backs and close our eyes to the horrific acts of hate that are being committed right under our noses? Is our president so determined to maintain the ambivalence of who and what is really responsible for these acts of terrorism; the beheadings, the lone wolf attacks, the murder of innocent men women and children, that he is willing to sit back and watch the continued slaughter of innocents at the hands of a religion who is itself the definition of intolerance?

Brother Rachid, a former Muslim posted a video called, “A Message to President Obama from a Former Muslim.”  In his video, he says,

“I can tell you with confidence that ISIL speaks for Islam. ISIL is a Muslim organization.” ISIL’s leader, Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, holds a PhD in Islamic studies and, therefore, knows more about Islam than Obama does. There are 10,000 members in ISIL who are all Muslims and come from different countries, with Islam being the common denominator.”

He further says of his own upbringing,

“We have been brainwashed to hate all of you in our sacred texts, in our prayers, in our Friday sermons, in our educational systems. We are ready to join any group that one day would fight you and destroy you and make Islam the religion of the whole world , as the Koran says.”

So, what about the innocent followers of Islam?  Is labeling an extremist group “Islamic terrorists,” a form of “intolerance,” as President Obama claims? In a panel at the Heritage Foundation, Brigitte Gabriel, the founder, president and CEO of ACT!  for America, addressed a Muslim law student about the “innocents” in contrast to the “radicals” of the faith.

“There are 1.2 billion Muslims in the world today – of course not all of them are radicals. The majority of them are peaceful people. The radicals are estimated to be 15-25 percent……you are looking at 180-300 million people dedicated to the destruction of western civilization……It is the radicals that kill. It is the radicals that behead and massacre.”  

“Why should we worry about the radicals?  When you look throughout history, most Germans were peaceful, yet the Nazis drove the agenda.  As a result, 60 million people died, 6 million Jews. The peaceful majority was irrelevant. When you look at the Russians, most were peaceful, but the Russians were able to kill 20 million people, the peaceful majority was irrelevant. Most of the Chinese were peaceful, yet the Chinese were able to kill 70 million people. The peaceful majority was irrelevant. When you look at Japan prior to the war, most were peaceful, yet Japan was able to butcher its way across Southeast Asia, killing 12 million people, mostly killed with bayonets and shovels. The peaceful majority was irrelevant.”

“On Sept. 11 in the United States, we had 2.3 million Arab Muslims living here…..it took 19 high jackers, 19 radicals to bring America down to its knees, destroy the World Trade Center, attack the Pentagon and kill almost 3000 Americans that day. The peaceful majority was irrelevant. So, for all our powers of reason and  talking about moderate and peaceful Muslims, I’m glad you were here, but where are the others speaking out?………. It is time we take political correctness and throw it in the garbage where it belongs…..”

While President Obama condemns those who slander the prophet of Islam,  releases terrorist after terrorist from Guantanamo Bay, and denounces the interrogation program in the United States, Islamic terrorists yelling “Allah Akbar,”  continue to behead and murder innocents around the globe. Are we all to become prisoners in our own homes because the leaders, of not only the United States, but nations around the globe cower at calling a spade a spade,? Is all this denial, surrounded by the bloodbath at the hands of Islamic terrorists,  justified  because we need to protect potentially hurt feelings?

Is Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the only one who has it right? The only one willing to stand up and call these radicals what they truly are? In his speech to the United Nations in September of 2014, he said,

“Ladies and gentlemen, the people of Israel pray for peace, but our hopes and the world’s hopes for peace are in danger because everywhere we look militant Islam is on the march. It’s not militants. It’s not Islam. It’s militant Islam. And typically its first victims are other Muslims, but it spares no one: Christians, Jews, Yazidis, Kurds. No creed, no faith, no ethnic group is beyond its sights. And it’s rapidly spreading in every part of the world.”

It is time to stop the proliferation of political correctness. It is time to stop walking on egg shells and deal with the cancer that threatens the security of the United States and the world. It is time for our leaders to call these terrorists what they truly are…..Muslim extremists, militant Islam, Islamic terrorists!

“Trickle Down Hatred and Contempt”

COMIC white house _edited-1 copy copy

Trickle down hatred and contempt. Is it real? Is it being used to control us?  Where does the buck stop on this issue, or more importantly, where does it begin?

We have all heard of trickle down economics, but what about trickle down hatred and contempt?  Can a leader set the stage and simply, imply by their action or non action, that they will tolerate hatred and contempt of a specific group in order to further their own agenda? Can negative comments by a leader regarding specific groups of people influence how those people will be treated or seen by others? Should the president of the United States be  representing only the portion of the public that believes as he does? How do our leader’s comments and actions influence the level of tolerance or acceptance exhibited by the American people?

The International Journal of Leadership Studies released a study by Diane J. Chandler from the Regent University School of Divinity, United States titled, “The Perfect Storm of Leaders’ Unethical Behavior: A Conceptual Framework,

“We can and do condemn the actions of leaders who decide to lie, belittle followers, and enrich themselves at the expense of the less fortunate.”  Unethical leadership behavior is, therefore, defined  as the organizational process of leaders acting in a manner inconsistent with agreed upon standards of character, decency, and integrity, which blurs or violates clear, measurable and legal standards, fostering constituent distrust because of personal interest.”

“Unethical behavior and its persistence must have a catalyzing starting place, a tipping point moment that prompts all subsequent unethical behavior, similar to the vortex of a tornado drawing everything into its fury.”

“Unethical charismatic leaders select or produce obedient, dependent, and compliant followers. Consequently when leaders deviate from ethical norms, compliant followers tend not to critique leaders’ decisions, since leaders are considered to be the standard bearers for moral conduct. The downside of charisma concerns possible negative consequences, including abuse of personalized power, the nurture of blind loyalties, and the inhibition of any criticism.”

Since the beginning of the Obama presidency, many of his speeches have resulted in great condescension towards Americans who disagree with his policies.  Obama has claimed that Americans who don’t agree with his administration on climate change are “a fairly serious threat to everybody’s future,” and “we don’t have time for a meeting of the flat earth society.” In another speech,  “You go in to small towns in Pennsylvania and it’s not surprising that they get bitter, they cling to their guns and their religion.”  In another, “Ideological extremism and maximalist position is much more prominent in the Republican party.”   Obama has made negative inferences regarding Fox News on more than one occasion, and a top official in his cabinet called Netanyahu a “Chickens**t.” In a ‘hot mic’ moment, Obama was caught calling tea party members, “dangerous extremists.” Is calling out those who disagree with his policies the proper behavior for the President of the United States? Are those who disagree, really a threat to society, racists, naysayers, flat-earthers, terrorists and extortionists?

When the president demonizes groups that disagree with him is he encouraging the mistreatment and exploitation of these groups? Do his comments influence and encourage the press and his public supporters to treat members of the tea party as extremists,  small town Americans as crazy and christians as religious fanatics? Is it right for the President of the United States to single out members of American society for disdain, ridicule or potential retaliation?

In June of 2013, according to a Rasmussen report, one in four voters who supported Obama reported believing that the tea party was the biggest terror threat to the United States. The most surprising aspect of this poll was that one in four believed that tea party members were not only the biggest threat to the United States, but a bigger threat than terrorists.

What about the race card?  Has the president and his team, used race as a tool to garner support for their policies, elicit votes or basically stir up opposition and in turn create more racial divide?

In October, in the Review and Outlook section of the Wall Street Journal, it was said,

“All this brings to mind a young presidential candidate named Barack Obama, who warned in 2008 that Republicans would play the race card. “They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. ‘He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?’” he told a rally. Mr. Obama won, and won again, but that hasn’t stopped Democrats from rolling out that same racism charge at any opportunity, using it in particular as a tool to drive minority turnout in elections….But Democrats do themselves no credit and the country no good by playing up racial divisions for partisan ends. Alas, they’ll keep doing it until voters stop rewarding them with votes.”

Are there still racial issues currently in the United States? As long as there are people in the world, there will always be differing opinions and therefore discrimination against many races and religions.   However, in the United States, we have made giant steps towards resolving these issues since Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement. In 2008, we elected a black president.  According to exit polls, President Obama did better with white voters than the past 2 democratic nominees, John Kerry and Al Gore. However, even with such great support from whites, Democrats still blame racism for the downward spiral of support for Obama.  Did every white person who voted for Obama suddenly turn racist? Or could it possibly be attributed to a failure in his policies and the continued stagnation of the economy and job creation among other heated issues?

In his recent speech to the UN, Obama compared the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson to the situation the world faces with ISIS. Does this place mis-founded ideas about racism over and above the threats by ISIS? Do his comments supporting Michael Brown over the police, prior to the completion of an investigation, cause distrust of our police by other communities, therefore encouraging unnecessary protests and dissension?

Does Obama’s silence on the slaughter of Christians around the world, represent a trickle down condemnation, and therefore, without words, send a message that Christians are no longer a group that we, as Americans, should support?

Ben Carson a pediatric neurosurgeon, and current candidate for the 2016 presidential election said,

“We need to understand that we are not each others’ enemies in this country. And it is only the political class that derives its power by creating friction. It is only the media that derives its importance by creating friction…that uses every little thing to create this chasm between people. This is not who we are……I think one of the keys to leadership is recognizing that everybody has gifts and talents. A good leader will learn how to harness those gifts toward the same goal.”

Martin Luther King said,

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character.”

As Americans we must not allow our leaders to use polarization for their own political ends. We must work towards a common goal and find solutions to make the country stronger.  Having an open mind and listening to all sides is a true sign of maturity, broad mindedness and tolerance. If we can all learn to co-exist and attempt to understand the position of others, instead of demonizing those who think differently, the country will be able to heal itself.   If you preach tolerance, and expect other to be tolerant, then you must be tolerant yourself. If you preach divisiveness, then you must expect divisiveness from others, therefore prohibiting the very tolerance we all so desperately  want.
 We must recognize, that when we support leaders who use polarization to their own political ends, then it will, one day,  be our own beliefs that will be at the receiving end of the trickle down hatred and contempt.

Mark Warner; Worth Millions While Virginians Go Broke!

US-VOTE-2012-DEMOCRATIC CAMPAIGN-OBAMA

Who is Mark Warner? He has been a Senator for the state of Virginia since 2008 and is running for re-election this November for another 6 years. He has voted with President Obama 97% of his time in office. He has worked in government since the early 1980’s, and is currently the 2nd richest Senator in office with a net worth over $200 million.

How did he make his fortune?  There have been strong suggestions that while he was a staffer for then Senator, Chris Dodd, Democrat for Connecticut, he had insider information about the newly emerging wireless industry; specifically spectrum licensing. As a result, he was able to profit from his federal beneficence. Often at speaking events, Warner hears a cell phone ring and says,

“Those cell phones…most people consider them an annoyance, but I just hear cha-ching, cha-ching.”

Up until 2012, members of Congress were not subject to punishment for insider trading when it involved nonpublic information about current or upcoming congressional activity.   For example, if a lawmaker learned that a grant would be offered under a government contract to a specific company, they were free to buy stock before that company announced it to the public, resulting in large profits.

Before the cellular phone age, in the early 1980s, the federal government made a decision as to who would get the rights to send signals across the public airwaves.  This was information that the public did not have access to and that resulted in Warner amassing his fortune.

Peter Schweizer, a research fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution and the president of the Government Accountability Institute,  wrote a book called,  Throw Them All Out: How Politicians and Their Friends Get Rich Off Insider Stock Tips, Land Deals and Cronyism That Would Send the Rest of Us to Prison.”   His book was released shortly after 60 minutes reported on Congress trading stock based on insider information in 2012.  As true today as in 2012, 60 minutes stated,

With the next national election less than a year away, congressman and senators are spending much of their time and energy raising the millions of dollars in campaign funds they need to hold on to a job that pays just 174,00 per year. Few of them are doing it for the salary and all of them will say they are doing it to serve the public. But there are other benefits: power prestige and the opportunity to become a Washington insider with access to information and connections that no one else has and an environment of privilege where rules that govern the rest of the country don’t always apply to them. Most former congressmen  and senators manage to leave Washington, if they ever leave Washington,  with more money in their pockets then they had when they arrived and the biggest challenge is avoiding temptation.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/congress-trading-stock-on-inside-information/

In 2006, Representatives, Louise Slaughter and Brian Baird,  introduced the STOCK Act which would make it illegal for members of Congress to trade stock on non public information and would require Congress to report stock trades every 90 days instead of once a year.  The bill went nowhere.  When Baird got a Congressional hearing on the Stock Act, no one showed up.

The situation did not improve.  “Political Intelligence,” took over. A practice  where former Congressmen and Staffers were allowed to roam the halls of Congress gathering nonpublic information and selling it to hedge funds. This would be considered criminal in the free market system, with prison sentences for those partaking, but was used on the Hill as a profit-making industry, bringing in over $100 million a year.

In September of 2008,  Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and the Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, held closed-door meetings with Congressional Leaders telling them that a global financial meltdown would happen within days. The American people were not warned, and suffered the consequences of  lost retirements and lifetime savings depleted, while our representatives on the Hill, were all able to protect their millionaire status, due to insider information.

In 2012, as a result of the 60 minutes investigation, and the embarrassment it caused many representatives such as Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner, Congress unanimously passed the STOCK Act. President Obama, with quite a bit of fanfare, signed the Act, stating,

“The powerful shouldn’t get to create one set of rules for themselves and another set of rules for everybody else. If we expect that to apply to our biggest corporations and to our most successful citizens, it certainly applies to our elected officials, especially at a time when there is a deficit of trust between this city and the rest of the country.”

However, in April of 2013, the House and the Senate unanimously voted, and President Obama quietly signed new legislation, to repeal a provision in the STOCK Act that would require 28,000 senior government officials to post all financial information online, available to the public.

The question now remains, are the American people being represented by millionaires on the Hill, who have thrown us under the bus while they continue to make millions on nonpublic insider information. Under the STOCK Act, it is illegal for our representatives and their staff to use insider information,  but who is to know without the provision requiring their trading activities be made public? Why do we continue to elect  representatives that have made their fortunes while claiming to serve the people, all while padding their bank accounts and assuming they understand the plight of the average American citizen.

As we all discovered, Congress voted not to participate in Obamacare, (Affordable Care Act) like the majority of Americans. Let’s not forget that Mark Warner provided a critical vote on December 23, 2009 to stop further in-depth  debate on Obamacare. The bill then proceeded to pass on Christmas Eve with Democrats voting unanimously to pass Obamacare, (Affordable Care Act), without even knowing what was in it. To this day, with their Cadillac Insurance plans intact, subsidized by hardworking taxpayers, only the American citizen is seeing millions of policies cancelled, rates and deductibles going through the roof, and those who cannot afford the insurance, forced to pay ever increasing fines to the Federal Government. Hundreds of thousands of illegals are allowed to partake in Obamacare at our expense while our President looks the other way. We have seen our once full time job market shift to a part time offering, workforce participation has not been this low since the 70’s, all while the government claims unemployment has fallen under 6%. Over 49% of Americans are getting some type of government, taxpayer funded assistance. Our borders have been invaded and millions of tax dollars are spent on lawyers, charter flights, and schooling, for illegals.  As a result, we are forced to cover budget deficits within our schools and communities and left wondering why illegal children are allowed in our schools without health certificates or the vaccinations that all American citizens are required to have.  President Obama and Democrats see no threats to our country by ISIS or drug cartels crossing into our open borders, and the majority of Democrats including Mark Warner voted against completing the border fence that was promised years ago in exchange for an earlier amnesty.  Our President continues to claim that we are better off today then we were 6 years ago, but I have to assume he is talking about our representatives on the hill because their accounts have continued to grow while most Americans have watched their savings dwindle.

It is time for the American people to say enough is enough!  We must make our representatives live by the same rule of law that we are forced to obey.  We need to send home the representatives who have made a career out of making millions in office while the rest of the country goes down the proverbial drain! Tell them we have had enough…VOTE Mark Warner out!!

Obama, Amnesty, Lies and the November Elections!

 

images

As many times as President Obama has promised  immigration reform in return for the 67% and 71% of the Hispanic vote he received in his 2008 and 2012 bid for the White House, what has he actually achieved?  He has blamed House Republicans for the lack of reform all while refusing to admit that his commitment to securing our borders, would be the first step in actually gaining bipartisan support for reform.  Although a formal immigration reform bill has not been passed, over the past 6 years, President Obama has fundamentally and systematically destroyed U.S. laws on deportation and immigration. He has encouraged illegals to come into the country, sign up for government entitlement programs funded by taxpayers, all while demonizing and retaliating against any state that enforces immigration laws. He has consistently lied and misled the American people, while he has removed any and all barriers at our borders. Many Americans, who have been in favor of immigration reform, have now tired of the lack of legal ramifications for those crossing our borders and hiding within the system, while freely partaking of public services that we, as Americans, have paid for and must jump through hoops ourselves in order to receive. If the country wants immigration reform, they have to look no further than the oval office for causing the political stalemate that has stymied all efforts to resolve the issue.

Below, you will find a timeline that shows how President Obama has not only disregarded our current deportation and immigration laws, but has systematically opened up our borders and refused to deport any illegals currently in the US.  In this day of terrorist threats, you must ask the question, why is our back door wide open to those whose life’s purpose is to destroy us?

I know the article is long, but I can assure you, if you read the entire timeline, you will be fully informed and no doubt appalled at the deception that has been played out at the expense and detriment of the American citizens and the United States. (Senator Jeff Sessions has provided the majority of the timeline).

 

President Obama gave a speech on Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

Obama: “To begin with, our borders have been porous for decades.  Obviously, the problem is greatest along our Southern border, but it’s not restricted to that part of the country.  In fact, because we don’t do a very good job of tracking who comes in and out of the country as visitors, large numbers avoid immigration laws simply by over-staying their visas.”

“More fundamentally, the presence of so many illegal immigrants makes a mockery of all those who are going through the process of immigrating legally.  Indeed, after years of patchwork fixes and ill-conceived revisions, the legal immigration system is as broken as the borders.”

 

March 8 2010:  ICE (U.S Immigration and Custom Enforcement)  Inflates Deportation Statistics According to the Washington Post: “Months after reporting that the number of illegal immigrants removed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement increased 47 percent during President Obama’s first year in office, the Department of Homeland Security on Monday corrected the record, saying the actual increase in those deported and ‘voluntary departures’ was 5 percent.”

June 18, 2010: Obama Administration Sues Arizona over Immigration Enforcement Law. 

 Obama:  “For example, there are those in the immigrants’ rights community who have argued passionately that we should simply provide those who are [here] illegally with legal status, or at least ignore the laws on the books and put an end to deportation until we have better laws.  And often this argument is framed in moral terms:  Why should we punish people who are just trying to earn a living? I recognize the sense of compassion that drives this argument, but I believe such an indiscriminate approach would be both unwise and unfair.  It would suggest to those thinking about coming here illegally that there will be no repercussions for such a decision.  And this could lead to a surge in more illegal immigration.  And it would also ignore the millions of people around the world who are waiting in line to come here legally.” 

July 30, 2010: In a memo to agency director Alejandro Mayorkas,  the Obama Administration details the plan to bypass Congress and grant amnesty by executive fiat.

October 17, 2010:  The administration dismissed hundreds of deportation cases. Up 700% between July and August 2010. 

Obama: “Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its borders and set laws for residency and citizenship.  And no matter how decent they are, no matter their reasons, the 11 million who broke these laws should be held accountable.”

August 24, 2010: The Houston Chronicle reported that DHS had begun “systematically reviewing thousands of pending immigration cases and moving to dismiss those filed against suspected illegal immigrants without serious criminal records.”

February 15, 2011: DHS Ignores Mandate To Maintain Operational Control of the Border.  The Government Accountability Office announces that U.S. Customs and Border Protection maintains only 69 of the roughly 4,000 miles along the northern border and only 873 of the almost 2,000 miles along the southwestern border. Only 33.7 miles of the 700 miles of fence mandated by the Secure Fence Act of 2006 had been completed by that time. Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee Michael McCaul responded to the President’s claim, stating “the border is not secure and it has never been more violent or dangerous.”

 Obama: “We have more boots on the ground on the Southwest border than at any time in our history.  We doubled the personnel assigned to Border Enforcement Security Task Forces.  We tripled the number of intelligence analysts along the border.  For the first time, we’ve begun screening 100 percent of southbound rail shipments.  And as a result, we’re seizing more illegal guns, cash and drugs than in years past.  Contrary to some of the reports that you see, crime along the border is down.  And statistics collected by Customs and Border Protection reflect a significant reduction in the number of people trying to cross the border illegally.”  “So the bottom line is this:  The southern border is more secure today than at any time in the past 20 years.”

March 16, 2010:  DHS Announces Termination of Funding for Virtual Fence Along the Southwestern Border

 Obama:But our borders are just too vast for us to be able to solve the problem only with fences and border patrols.  It won’t work.  Our borders will not be secure as long as our limited resources are devoted to not only stopping gangs and potential terrorists, but also the hundreds of thousands who attempt to cross each year simply to find work.” 

Obama:That’s why businesses must be held accountable if they break the law by deliberately hiring and exploiting undocumented workers.  We’ve already begun to step up enforcement against the worst workplace offenders.  And we’re implementing and improving a system to give employers a reliable way to verify that their employees are here legally. But we need to do more.  We cannot continue just to look the other way as a significant portion of our economy operates outside the law.  It breeds abuse and bad practices.  It punishes employers who act responsibly and undercuts American workers.”

January 2009: Obama Administration Ends Worksite Enforcement Actions.  In early 2009,  ICE executed a raid (initiated and planned under the Bush administration) on an engine machine shop in Bellingham, Washington, detaining 28 illegal immigrants who were using fake Social Security numbers and identity documents. Shortly thereafter, pro-amnesty groups criticized the Administration for enforcing the law. An unnamed DHS official was quoted in the Washington Times as saying, “the Secretary is not happy about it and this is not her policy.” Instead of enforcing the law, the Secretary investigated the ICE agents for simply doing their duty. Esther Olavarria, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, said on a call with employers and pro-amnesty groups that “we’re not doing raids or audits under this administration.”

Obama: “So, we have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement. But even though we’ve answered these concerns, I suspect there will be those who will try to move the goal posts one more time. They’ll say we need to triple the border patrol. Or quadruple the border patrol. They’ll say we need a higher fence to support reform. Maybe they’ll say we need a moat. Or alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied. And I understand that. That’s politics.”

June 1, 2011: Obama Administration Ignores New York’s Refusal to Cooperate with Federal Immigration Agents.  

 March – June 2011: ICE Director Morton outlines new enforcement priorities, despite having no legal or congressional authority to do so, he tells police to refrain from enforcing the law against individuals engaging in protests, if they are here illegally.

June 23, 2011: ICE Union Outraged Over Morton Administrative Amnesty Memos. The ICE union issued a press release expressing outrage over Director Morton’s actions, stating: “Unable to pass its immigration agenda through legislation, the Administration is now implementing it through agency policy.” “have excluded our union and our agents from the entire process of developing policies, it was all kept secret from us, we found out from the newspapers. “the result is a means for every person here illegally to avoid arrest or detention, as officers we will never know who we can or cannot arrest.” The release concluded: “we are asking everyone to please email or call your Congressman and Senators immediately and ask them to help stop what’s happening at ICE, we desperately need your help.”

Obama: “Today, there are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.  But they’ve broken the rules, and have cut in front of the line. And the truth is, the presence of so many illegal immigrants makes a mockery of all those who are trying to immigrate legally.”

August 18, 2011: Administration Begins Case-by-Case Review of Deportation Cases for Purposes of Granting Administrative Amnesty

September 2, 2011: Treasury Inspector General Reports Government Paying Billions in Tax Credits to Illegal Immigrants. “Millions of people are seeking this tax credit who, we believe, are not entitled to it.

On April 17, 2012, the Administration reduced the number to 300; there are currently about 130 Guard members stationed on the border.

December 29, 2011: ICE Creates 24-Hotline for Illegal Immigrant Detainees. ICE announced a new 24-hour hotline for illegal immigrant detainees to ensure that they “are made aware of their rights.” The hotline is to be staffed by the Law Enforcement Support Center, which ICE had previously claimed was too understaffed to respond to local law enforcement trying to verify immigration status.

January 5, 2012: DHS Stops Secure Communities in Alabama in Retaliation for State Immigration Enforcement Law.

Obama: “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case.”

January 6, 2012: USCIS Announces Proposal To Permit an Entire Segment of Illegal Immigrant Population To Remain in the U.S. USCIS announced a proposed rule to allow the illegal immigrant relatives of U.S. citizens to apply for waivers to remain in U.S., thereby avoiding the law that requires them to return to their home countries and apply for a waiver. USCIS Director Mayorkas emphasized they would also consider expanding the waiver to illegal immigrant relatives of green card holders and clarified that even illegal immigrants in deportation proceedings  are  eligible for these waivers.  USCIS issued field guidance for the program, instructing USCIS officers that an applicant with a criminal history is still eligible for a waiver as long as the offense qualifies as a “petty offense” or “youthful offender” exception under the INA and is not a crime involving moral turpitude.

Obama:Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own.  And believe me, right now dealing with Congress… Believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting.  I promise you. Not just on immigration reform.  But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions.  That’s not how our Constitution is written.”

March 5, 2014: Administration unilaterally acts to provide work permits to spouses of H-1B guest workers, increasing the supply of guest workers by almost 100,000 plus an additional 30,000 each following year.

Obama:   “Protecting public safety and deporting dangerous criminals has been and will remain the top priority, but we are going to refocus our efforts where we can to make sure we do what it takes to keep our border secure.”   “We focused our enforcement efforts on criminals who are here illegally and who endanger our communities.  And today, deportations of criminals is at its highest level ever. “

May  31, 2014:  DHS DOC Reveals Mass Release of Criminal Aliens. The Obama administration released more than 63,000 criminal immigrants with nearly 88,000 convictions. The crimes included murder, rape, pedophilia, and kidnapping as well as thousands of drug-related crimes.

Obama:  “First, we strengthened security at the borders so that we could finally stem the tide of illegal immigrants.  We put more boots on the ground on the southern border than at any time in our history.  And today, illegal crossings are down nearly 80 percent from their peak in 2000.” 

Summer, 2014:  Tens of thousands of illegal men, women and children surge the border and overwhelm border patrol.

June, 2014:  Eric holder of DOJ, reports that the U.S. will supply over 100 lawyers and paralegals for the illegals surging the border at the cost of over $2 million to taxpayers. DHS decides to house illegals at military bases. Free charter flights will be arranged to fly illegals across the US to unite with families who are also here illegally at the expense of the U.S. taxpayer.

July, 2014: New reports show the number of migrants who crossed the border in family units outnumbered the unaccompanied children and come to the U.S. carrying disease. A large number of “children” crossing border unaccompanied are actually teenagers between 15 and 18 and some participating in gangs. The majority of illegals crossing the border carry tuberculosis, scabies and other infectious diseases. “There is really no hard stop at the border, and we have no idea health-wise what diseases are coming across,” a health official who works in the McAllen border said.  ”There’s no real medical screening either. Basically if [an illegal immigrant] tells a Border Patrol agent or law enforcement official they feel sick, or if they look sick, then they’re checked. If they don’t say anything, that’s it, they’re cleared.”

Obama: The children who are fortunate enough to survive it will be taken care of while they go through the legal process, but in most cases that process will lead to them being sent back home.” 

July-August, 2014: Surge of illegal children over the border are secretly transported to communities and cities across the U.S. with out prior notification to local governments. Communities budgets are stretched beyond limits.

Obama: “We’re sending a strong signal that they can’t simply show up at the border and automatically assume that they’re going to be absorbed.”

September, 2014: Illegal surge of children at the border are placed into U.S. schools. Over 37,000 newly arrived illegal children are enrolled in public schools at a cost to taxpayers of $750 billion. Public schools and communities are not able to handle the overcrowding and the demand on local budgets and services.

Obama:Protecting public safety and deporting dangerous criminals has been and will remain the top priority, but we are going to refocus our efforts where we can to make sure we do what it takes to keep our border secure.”

Obama: “Today, I sent a letter to congressional leaders asking that they work with me to address the urgent humanitarian challenge on the border, and support the immigration and Border Patrol agents who already apprehend and deport hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants every year.” 

 September, 2014: Obama administration stops prosecutions of first time illegals under “Operation Streamline.” “Operation Streamline is like one of the last strongholds we have as a deterrent. Our manpower is dwindling on a daily basis,” Worsencroft said. “The fence can only do so much.”

Obama:  “Are folks more interested in politics, or are they more interested in solving the problem? If they’re interested in solving the problem, then this can be solved. If the preference is for politics, then it won’t be solved.” 

September, 2014:   Obama administration turns blind eye to  hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens receiving free healthcare through Obamacare, while Americans are thrown off their policies.

Please find out if your State Senator or Congressman support Amnesty.  If you believe that we must secure our borders before offering another amnesty to millions of illegals, then please go to the polls and vote in November!

“Beheadings: Coming to Your Town Soon?”

140903124055-isis-killer-beheading-video-story-top

 

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, has posted beheadings of two Americans on Social Media and threatened another British worker with beheading.   In the news this week, ISIS called on followers in Australia to behead innocent citizens within their cities and  has called on followers in the United States to kidnap and behead military personnel,  all to prove their power and reach into our lives.

What does the Quran say about beheading? Is there really something in the Holy book of Islam that suggests beheading the infidels is a path to paradise where you can have what ever you wish?  Or is beheading just a gruesome act that extreme Islamists have adopted as a scare tactic? Does this group called ISIS or ISIL, truly, not represent Islam like our President has insisted?

Quran 8:12, which says,

“When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.” 

 Is the religion of Islam peaceful? Have the “radicals”  just taken peaceful passages from the Quran and interpreted them into directives to kill all who do not worship Allah?  In researching  the Quran, I came across a paper by Bassam Khoury, titled,  Is Islam a Peace-Loving Religion?,  where he said,

In order to understand the Quran, it is imperative that you understand the concept of  “abrogation.””

In the Quran there are many verses that contradict themselves throughout the writings, sometimes more than once.  “Abrogation” says that Muslims must know which verse came first and which came later, because  when there is a contradiction, the latest writing is the one that should be taken as truth.  Verses early in the Quran call for a peaceful response to any who oppose Islam;

“Therefore expound opening what thou art commanded, and turn away from those who join false gods with Allah.

However, later in the Quranthere are verses which say the exact opposite;

But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem.

So which one are they to believe? By the rules of abrogation, Muslims must believe the latter.  The majority of Islamic scholars say that one verse of the Quran, which speaks of violence against non believers,  abrogates 124 verses, which are all the verses that speak of peace and forgiveness.  Therefore, are we to believe that the Quran supports and encourages violence against non-believers?  If it does, then why would peace loving believers of Islam, say that violence is not permitted, if, in fact, abrogation is the rule of law in the Quran? Mr. Khoury  speaks of a quote by Abu Hammid Ghazali,  a Professor at the Nizamiyah University of Baghdad, which was recognized as one of the most reputed institutions of learning in the golden era of Muslim history. He said,

“Speaking is a means to achieve objectives,  if a  praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible.”  

So what are we to believe? Who are we to believe?

If we look at happenings around the world, we have seen untold numbers of beheadings committed by those who claim to do so in the name of Allah and  Islam. ISIS has beheaded and slaughtered soldiers, men, women and children. They have driven throughout the streets shooting innocent families in their cars, they have beheaded children and forced their parents to carry their heads as an example to others. Christian populations are being tortured and killed, throughout the Muslim world, yet Islam is portrayed as a “peaceful” religion.  Is this the violence that is demanded in the Quran?  Is this the violence that followers of Islam are expected to deliver to any who do not believe in the Islamic faith or submit to conversion? Is it a peaceful religion that kidnaps and forces young girls to convert to Islam with a knife at their throats, and then raping them or forcing them to marry or be used as slaves? Riffat Hassan, professor of religious studies at University of Louisville, says,

“The way Islam has been practiced in most Muslim societies for centuries has left millions of Muslim women with battered bodies, minds and souls.”

I wish to believe that the majority of Muslims do not follow or believe in the violence that has become such common place committed by fellow Muslims.   But, where is the outrage by the Muslim community and what will the leaders of the Middle East do to stop the trail of carnage?

The United States, Australia, Great Britain, France, Germany the Netherlands and Canada have offered up training , intelligence, financial barriers, deportations, tangible equipment and ammunition, and reconnaissance flights, but NO Troops on the ground!  Turkey, Jordan and Saudi Arabia have offered their assistance by supplying locations for training, and money, but NO troops on the ground! Why, would the Middle Eastern world refuse to fight the “extremists,” if their countrymen are in the direct and deadly path of ISIS?   President Obama says  the majority of those murdered have been Muslims, so why does the Middle East refuse to defend its people? Do they secretly believe in the “cause” of ISIS?  Do they believe the world should and will one day convert to Islam? Why will they not fight the fight? Those in Muslim countries who stand up to this violence are Christians, and they put their lives on the line to speak out against the slaughter of their own. The majority of Muslims that have been tortured, murdered, and beheaded have not just been Muslims, but Christian Muslims. Is this why Muslim leaders refuse to defend the people of the Middle East?

In Australia, counterterrorism forces detained 15 people after receiving intelligence that ISIS was planning public beheadings in Australian cities to demonstrate its reach. We have seen British and United States citizens who have taken up the fight with ISIS. A woman was recently found beheaded in her garden in North London. A Muslim suspect admitted he shot, Brendan Tevlin, a straight A student, 8 times as vengeance for US military action in the Middle East.  He is also suspected in three other murders within the United States. ISIS has taken over social media and are using it as a tool to recruit new fighters. They are posting directions in online chat rooms, on how to prepare bombs in your kitchen as well as a list of tourist spots to hit; Times Square, the state of Texas, military locations and any place where there are crowds.

Should we consider ISIS a direct threat to the United States? Our borders are open and we basically don’t know who is entering the United States and the ultimate purpose of everyone who enters.  The counter terrorism group in Australia considered themselves lucky to have discovered this extended ISIS group before they were able to commit countless beheadings of innocent civilians.  What if we are unable to catch a group planning the same events here at home? When will President Obama take this situation seriously and do what is necessary to keep the American people safe? Why has he not secured our borders? Why does he continue to be more concerned with political correctness, and the “feelings” of Muslims over the safety of the American people?

Just this week, a measure was put forth in the Senate, the “Expatriate Terrorist Act,” which would renounce the citizenship of anyone in the United States that joins the fight with terrorist groups like ISIS. However,  Democratic senators objected saying this might infringe on their constitutional rights. Republican senator, Ted Cruz said,

“If we do not pass this legislation, the consequence will be that Americans fighting alongside ISIS today may come home tomorrow with a U.S. passport, may come home to New York, or Los Angeles or Houston or Chicago, and innocent Americans may be murdered if the Senate does not act today.” 

Why are we concerned with protecting the rights of terrorists?

Nigel Farage, is a British politician and has been the leader of the UK Independence Party since 2010.  In a recent interview, he said,

“I tie the growing ISIS threat to multiculturalism. Children and women were systematically sexually abused by Pakistani Muslim men and it was known by child protective services and the police force and they did nothing because they feared if they said or did anything they would be considered “racist.”  Whole districts are becoming “no-go” zones for the police, then it leads to Sharia law actually being implemented in parts of British cities, then it leads to British citizens going off to Syria and Iraq to fight for ISIS.  If we in Britain,  America and the west, who come from Christian cultures, who believe in Democracy,  value them,  we better stand up and start fighting for them. It does not mean that we are against other religions, far from it. We can be tolerant, we have always been tolerant. But we have to accept that our society is based on the rule of law and that every citizen must be treated equally.”

I believe the President and his followers are so concerned with being politically correct and are so determined not to “hurt” or offend Muslims in our country, that we will slowly but surely follow in the wrongful and debilitating steps of the UK.  It is time for us to stand up and fight for our country which stands for freedom, liberty and the rule of law; OUR rule of law. We should not be tolerant of those who chose to participate within a group like ISIS whose only claim to fame is the purposeful, cowardly and barbaric killing of men, women and children who are not believers in Islam. We must stop being so concerned with “feelings” and get to the business of protecting our own!

Why do immigrants flock to our borders, leaving their own homeland and cultures, if they just want to change us into the very place they left?  Why is it politically incorrect to want to keep our culture and our morals and ethics within our own borders? In 1907, Theodore Roosevelt said,

‘In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.’

We are the United States! Millions clamor at our borders because we represent freedom, both economically and religiously.  We stand for hard work and the American dream. We have remained passive for too long, under the command of the politically correct. We have watched as our country has been fundamentally transformed into something we no longer recognize.  Our economy is circling the drain, unemployment has remained stagnant, friends and families have been divided through polarization by our politicians,  entitlements have gone through the roof,  part time jobs are now the norm, illegals have gained unlimited access to our borders, provided with homes, education, free flights to cities around the U.S. to be reunited with their families, integrated into our communities and schools without proper health screenings, all at the expense of the American people against their wishes.  Our borders have become a laughing stock and an open invitation to any and all who wish us harm.  Now, we are being threatened  inside our country by a radical religious group who our President chooses to defend while Christians are slaughtered around the world.

Must we see, once controlled diseases  take hold again because we allow unvaccinated children into the very schools that will not allow American kids to enter without proof of immunization? Do we need to see airplanes again, take their own murderous path because we allow illegals to fly without identification while we strip search American citizens? Must we be stripped of our rights and our money in order to appease those who are here without our permission? Must we be denied our voice in elections because politicians corrupt the very integrity of our voting booths, demanding illegals be granted the right to vote,  all  in the name of politics?  Do we need to see American citizens beheaded in our own communities before we recognize the very enemy in our midst and the open path through which they arrived?  It is time to stop the madness! It is time to bring back the country that was once the envy of the world but which has become the very example of corruption, lies, and tyranny that WE once fought around the world!

“Facts in Iraq from Jaif”

Unknown-1

The situation in Iraq has changed. The relationship between Sunni and Shia Arabs, and Kurds, is now driven by facts on the ground, not USA foreign policy.

The Kurdish Regional Government (KRG);

 New boundaries: The Peshmerga (the KRG military) and security forces have occupied most of the disputed areas and Sinjar. They have also occupied the eastern side of Mosul (where most of the local Kurds live), all of Kirkuk, and they are providing security for the related oil facilities. This provides a thick physical barrier between the insurgents and the Kurdish Region. Control over these areas has been a long sought goal of the KRG and it is difficult to envisage them returning these areas to Baghdad. The KRG no longer has to negotiate for concessions from Baghdad, the central government will now have to negotiate with Erbil.

 KRG vs. ISIS: While there have been a few incidents, ISIS is purposely avoiding combat with the Peshmerga for three valid reasons. First, the Peshmerga are more than a match for ISIS.  They have the same motivation to defend Kurdish lives, as ISIS has to conduct jihad. Second and perhaps more importantly, starting operations against the Kurds would open a northern front against ISIS just as they are on the march south. Third, the Turks would much rather have a friendly oil rich KRG on their southern border than a caliphate run by expansionist Arab extremists. The Turks will intervene directly or indirectly if they see a threat from ISIS developing.

 

INSURGENTS:  

Intent: We need to take ISIS at their word. They say they are going to Baghdad and absent a reversal; they probably will give it a try. At the very least they will be able to create a shock wave of violence, a refugee exodus, and a diplomatic crisis. ISIS is described as a terrorist organization; it is and ISIS uses terror and propaganda extremely effectively in the Iraqi context. It is also a well equipped, experienced, and effective military organization. Their use of captured Iraqi uniforms and equipment, and their sheer audacity, is giving them an ability to infiltrate and spread chaos behind Iraqi lines, setting the stage for their main forces. Marching on Baghdad will take a significant logistical capability to sustain; while they now have enough captured material to push south, organizing this aspect of the battlefield is ISIS’s major vulnerability. However, ISIS will not be deterred by a fear of failure. We may find their tactics abhorrent but ought not doubt their faith in their self

 

BAGHDAD:

Maliki: Anytime a Prime Minister has to ask civilians to arm themselves and defend the capital,  he has a serious crisis. However, Maliki has recently had a few positive developments as well. Ayatollah Sistani, the head of the Shia Hawza (their supreme religious institution) has issued a Fatwa (a religious order) stating that all Shia must join the military and defend the Shia people and institutions. Sistani is much respected and his voice will have an impact. The formal arrival of the Iranian al-Quds (Revolutionary Guard) forces offers Maliki a tremendous military tool. These developments will rally the Shia against ISIS.

Maliki’s dilemma: However, these positives come with strong negatives. Both these developments prove the case of the ISIS, the secular Sunni Arabs, and the Kurds that Maliki and his government is of the Shia, by the Shia, and for the Shia. To make it worse, it reinforces the notion that Maliki is a willing tool of the Iranians. Maliki needs to stoke up the emotions of the Shia to build his military capacity but with each step he takes to do this, he undermines the  viability of Iraq as a multiple ethnic/religious nation. The hard part for Maliki will be to keep the specific fight against ISIS from devolving into a general fight against the Sunnis.

Baghdad: If the fighting comes to Baghdad, all bets are off as to the outcome but one fact is inevitable, it will rapidly become a sectarian Battlefield, much like Beirut during the civil war. Even non-radicalized Sunni and Shia will have to take up arms to defend their neighborhoods. By the reckoning of ISIS, this is a desirable outcome. They want to provoke an existential fight for Iraq because they believe they can win it. They might be wrong but, given their recent success, it is hard to imagine they will want to stop now and reconsider the strategy that has brought them so far, so quickly.

 

USG:

Assistance: It is clear from the administration’s most recent statements that little meaningful American assistance is coming. Air, drone, and missile strikes will initially hit highly lucrative targets but that target rich environment will pass unless US Special Forces and intelligence assets are on the ground to provide a constant flow of intelligence. It seems unlikely that the administration will put these boots on the ground. Deliveries of weapon systems, absent a demonstration that Iraqi soldiers will stand and fight, will not change the current military balance. If the insurgents have SA-7 anti-aircraft missiles and understand how to ambush aircraft, they will severely compromise the American’s ability to resupply and tactically support Maliki.

 Intel failure: People are already talking about this as yet another intelligence failure. Perhaps, but not in the way it is being discussed. The failure to predict that ISIS was going to arrive at the doorstep of Baghdad this quickly was not a failure to predict that ISIS was going to attack Mosul. This has been the most predicted attack in years. The failure was not to understand how quickly the Iraqi army and security forces would collapse.

 Influence on the Kurds: The US government has never had less influence on the Kurds than they have today. The American Embassy has supported Maliki for years on each key issue of dispute. They opposed the KRG’s PSAs and export of petroleum.  They allowed Baghdad to throttle back the KRG share of national revenue from 17 to 10-12 percent. They have provided no meaningful support to the Peshmerga and not pressured Baghdad to do so. The KDP and PUK are still on a State Department third-tier terrorist list for having taken up arms against a lawful government, Saddam Hussein. While I am certain the USG wants the KRG to use the Peshmerga to strike ISIS from the north, it is unlikely the KRG will conduct an offensive without major commitments from the US and Baghdad. Instead, the KRG will secure their new borders and wait as the crisis deepens because the worse it gets for Baghdad, the better it gets for Erbil.

Petroleum: A proposal that is starting to make the rounds in the MNR is that the KRG ought to quickly exploit these new oil-producing areas under KRG supervision. The Kurds would create facts on the ground by expanding the areas where they are exploring for and producing oil. It may be too early to start discussing commercial options with the KRG but, perhaps not.

KRG vs ISIS: While there have been a few incidents, ISIS is purposely avoiding combat with the Peshmerga for three valid reasons. First, the Peshmerga are more than a match for ISIS.  Second and perhaps more importantly, starting operations against the Kurds would open a northern south. The Turks would much rather have a friendly oil rich KRG on their southern border than a caliphate run by expansionist Arab extremists. The Turks will intervene directly or indirectly if they see a threat from ISIS developing.

Iraq army: As the Iraqi army collapsed in Mosul and Kirkuk, entire units (including three generals) drove north to the Kurdish regime to escape ISIS. The KRG disarmed them, took their vehicles, and put them on planes to get them back to Baghdad. The Kurds were scrupulously polite with the soldiers but very eager to get them out of Kurdistan. The Peshmerga also aggressively took control of significant quantities of abandoned Iraqi army military equipment, weapons, munitions, and vehicles in Kirkuk.  So, part of their resupply problem has been mitigated.

 

 INSURGENTS:  

 Intent: We need to take ISIS at their word. They say they are going to Baghdad and absent a reversal, they probably will. At the very least they will be able to create a shock wave of violence, a refugee exodus, and a Diplomatic crisis. ISIS is described as a terrorist organization; it is and ISIS uses terror and propaganda extremely effectively in the Iraqi context. It is also a well equipped, experienced, and effective military organization. Their use of captured Iraqi uniforms and equipment, and their sheer audacity, is giving them an ability to infiltrate and spread chaos behind Iraqi lines, setting the stage for their main forces. Marching on Baghdad will take a significant logistical capability to sustain; while they now have enough captured material to push south, organizing this aspect of the battlefield is ISIS’s major vulnerability. However, ISIS will not be deterred by a fear of failure. We may find their tactics abhorrent but ought not doubt their faith in their self-appointed mission.

Former Ba’this: While ISIS fighters are conducting the bulk of insurgent fighting against Iraqi military and security forces, the previously mentioned former (Saddam era) Iraqi soldiers and security officers are playing a much increased and nuanced role. They are organizing, seizing abandoned Iraqi army material, taking control of their neighborhoods, and seizing key terrain features They are playing by ISIS’s general rules (no smoking, no drinking, no music) and cooperating with ISIS. However, they are waiting to see how the situation develops before committing themselves to combat.

What next: These gentleman are ready to negotiate with Baghdad and the Americans, and work against ISIS, but only if they receive significant concessions and greater control over the petroleum resources in their provinces. According to contacts, a shadow Ba’ath party now formally exists and in the current chaos, is aggressively recruiting members. My Kurdish contacts report, no matter how counterintuitive it seems, the KRG is allowing the leadership of the shadow Ba’ath party to visit Erbil. The Kurds evidently view a secular Ba’ath party, interested in gaining greater control over petroleum in Sunnis Arab areas, as a potential ally in their future negotiations with Baghdad.

 

 BAGHDAD:

Maliki: Anytime a Prime Minister has to ask civilians to arm themselves and defend the capital, he has a serious crisis. However, Maliki has recently had a few positive developments as well. Ayatollah Sistani, the head of the Shia Hawza (their supreme religious institution) has issued a Fatwa (a religious order) stating that all Shia must join the military and defend the Shia people and institutions.

 USG:

I have a new source for updates on what is really happening in Iraq. Although I am not able to reveal his identity, I hope you will follow along on his updates when they are sent. Please enjoy some real reports on the happenings in Iraq……..in the future, I will title all his reports as “Facts in Iraq from Jaif.”

article-2658286-1EC9481000000578-744_634x357“I am a former western government official with ten years of ongoing experience in Iraq.”
 
“What we are seeing in Iraq is the next stage of international Jihadism.” 
 
“The success of ISIS is creating a new jihadist plan of action. The use of abhorrent and industrial scale terrorism works. It worked for Ghangis Khan, it worked for the SS, and it works for ISIS. This message is going viral and it will infect jihadists worldwide because ISIS has for the moment achieved concrete results on the ground, the true test of a Jihad, and because ISIS has effective media operations to propagate this message.”
 
“They are not just being cruel, they are glorifying their cruelty as the one path that works in defeating their enemies and expanding the Caliphate. Their tactics are taken from the Koran and from Pol Pot.” 
 
“This is a deviation from AQ’s formula which was to strike the “far enemy”, Christendom. ISIS intends to attack the “near enemy”, imperfect Islamic States, and then attack the west. However, the message that will be propagated will be to attack both the far and near enemy simultaneously.”

“The Iraq Disaster in Shocking Headlines, News Stories and Quotes….”

“Four and a half years later, as you graduate, the landscape has changed. We have removed our troops from Iraq. We are winding down our war in Afghanistan. Al Qaeda’s leadership on the border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan has been decimated, and Osama bin Laden is no more.”

“Thanks to the sacrifice and service of our brave men and women in uniform, the war in Iraq is over, the war in Afghanistan is winding down, al Qaeda has been decimated, Osama bin Laden is dead.”

“Four years ago, I promised to end the war in Iraq– and we did. I said we’d wind down the war in Afghanistan– and we are. And while a new tower rises above the New York skyline, al Qaeda is on the path to defeat and Osama bin Laden is dead.”

We are leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq.”

The statements above were  made by President Obama as recently as last week.

Today in the News:

“Americans were being evacuated Thursday from a major Iraqi air base as Al Qaeda-aligned militants toppled cities in the country’s north and threatened to advance toward Baghdad.”

“ISIS, a merger of terrorist organizations Al-Qaeda and Jabhat-Al-Nusra, seized the Iraqi cities of Mosul and Tikrit.”

“ISIS has confiscated $429 million, making them the wealthiest terror group in the world.”

“Iraqi military abandoning their posts, while militants stage a parade of American Humvee patrol cars seized from the Iraqi army. Insurgents have also captured 2 helicopters, 15 tanks and armored cars also belonging to the United States.”

“The insurgents carry out beheadings as they cross Iraq for Baghdad. In one video insurgents are seen knocking on the door of a Sunni police major in the middle of the night. They blindfold him, cuff him and carve off his head in his own bedroom. An image of the officer’s decapitated head was tweeted with the sickening message: “This is our ball. It is made of skin #WorldCup. In their push for the capital, 1700 Shia soldiers have been executed.”

“In another video, gunmen are seen carrying out discriminate drive-by shootings on motorists and pedestrians. Armed with machine guns, the insurgents film themselves shooting cars off the road then move in to video close-ups of the victims’ blood stained bodies slumped in the seats.”

“An estimated 500,000 Iraqi citizens have fled.”

“ISIS removes the border  between Syria and Iraq, to begin the establishment of an Islamic superstate.”

“The White House says the oil refinery in Baji, Iraq remains in control of the government of Iraq.”

“ISIS takes over the oil refinery in Baji, Iraq.”

“ISIS  is currently 70 miles from Baghdad, with plans on taking over the city.”

“Vice President Biden spoke with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki by phone and expressed US solidarity with Iraq in its fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.”

President Obama says:  

 “No boots on the ground. Not being considered.”

The man in charge of ISIS is Abu Bakr al Baghdadi. He was in US custody at Camp Bucca Iraq, until President Obama closed down the prison camp and had him released in 2009. Days after Osama bin Laden was killed in May of 2011, Abu threatened violent retaliation for Bin Laden’s death and three days later claimed responsibility for an attack in Iraq that killed 24 policeman and wounded 72 others. Abu than pledged on AOI’s website that he would carry out 100 attacks across Iraq in retaliation for Bin Laden’s death.  It seems he has been true to his word.

The New York Times says President Obama does not offer the air support requested by the Iraqi government because the White House is,

“Reluctant to open a new chapter in a conflict that he insisted was over when the United States withdrew the last of its forces from Iraq in 2011.”

 

In 2011, Mitt Romney condemned Obama on his decision to withdraw all troops from Iraq:

“The unavoidable question is whether this decision is the result of a naked political calculation or simple sheer ineptitude in negotiations with the Iraqi government. The American people deserve to hear the recommendations that were made by our military commanders in Iraq.”

Former Utah Governor, John Huntsman  said,

“President Obama’s decision, however, to not leave a small, focused presence in Iraq is a mistake and the product of his administration’s failures,” . “The president’s inability to reach a security agreement leaves Iraq vulnerable to backsliding, thus putting our interests in the region at risk. An ideal arrangement would have left a small troop presence that could have assisted with the training of Iraqi security forces and vital counter-terror efforts.”

Lindsay Graham, said,

“ISIS is now a military force that will allow Al Qaeda to plan attacks against the United States from Iraq. The next 9/11 is in the making as I speak!”

Senator McCain on the Senate floor today,

“We need a new team that knows what America’s national security interests are and are more interested in national security that they are in politics.”

“A residual force would have stabilized the country. Most military experts will tell you that.” “You ignore history of what we’ve done after conflicts, which is to leave a stabilizing force behind, which is what we could have done in Iraq and avoided this debacle that we are in today.”

“This decision will be viewed as a strategic victory for our enemies in the Middle East. It is clear that this decision of a complete pullout of United States troops from Iraq was dictated by politics and not our national security interests.”

“I believe that history will judge the president’s leadership with the scorn and disdain that it deserves.”

“White House spokesman says the situation in Iraq is “GRAVE” and has deteriorated over the last 24 hours.”

“President Obama says, during a press conference, that he would decide over the next coming days on a range of options presented by his National Security team. He then boarded a plane for a trip to the Cannon Ball, North Dakota area to visit the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Nation. Then on to Laguna Beach to a $32,000 per person fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee.”
