Silence – 104,366 Brave, Silent American Soldiers

imageedit_6_6717250909About six miles from Maastricht, in the Netherlands, lie buried 8,301 American soldiers who died in “Operation Market Garden” in the battles to liberate Holland in the fall winter of 1944.

Every one of the men buried in the cemetery, as well as those in the Canadian and British military cemeteries, has been adopted by a Dutch family who mind the grave, decorate it, and keep alive the memory of the soldier they have adopted. It is even the custom to keep a portrait of “their” American soldier in a place of honor in their home. Annually, on “Liberation Day,” memorial services are held for “the men who died to liberate Holland.” The day concludes with a concert. The final piece is always “ll Silenzio,” a memorial piece commissioned by the Dutch and first played in 1965 on the 20th anniversary of Holland’s liberation. It has been the concluding piece of the memorial concert ever since.

This year the soloist was a 13-year-old Dutch girl, Melissa Venema, backed by Andre` Rieu and his orchestra (the Royal Orchestra of the Netherlands). This beautiful concert piece is based upon the original version of taps and was composed by Italian composer Nino Rossi.

Millions in Taxpayer Vacations – Isn’t Life Grand Mr. President?

imageedit_7_4252998750Vacations are a beautiful thing indeed, especially when taxpayers are footing the bill. Having been nicknamed our “most well-traveled, expensive” president to date, by many Americans, President Obama has spent an unimaginable 44 million dollars on vacations and travel.

Granted, it is a well know fact that a president is rarely fully on vacation-mode due to the nature of the job and may merely be enjoying a different sense of scenery but the expense of these outings are arguably outlandish. When the taxpayer is the one who is mostly responsible for footing the bill, it’s a problem.

Yes, each president elect has claimed that because he always travels with staff and handles key communications business, location isn’t an issue. Compared to former President George W. Bush, who visited his Crawford ranch repeatedly, Obama’s foreign travels require much more revenue, staff, security and communications.

“Any American would understand that sending the president and Secret Service to a small Texas town is a lot cheaper than an ostentatious vacation in Martha’s Vineyard and Hawaii,” stated Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a taxpayer watchdog group.

Since taking office in 2009 Obama has taken 31 international trips, more than any other president. That’s 119 days spent overseas as of March of this year and has cost taxpayers millions.

Obama, in addition to all of his international travels, spends a considerable amount of time accompanied by his family while traveling. The Obama’s have vacationed on “exclusive beaches in New England, private clubs in Key Largo and, of course, luxurious beaches in Hawaii,” according to The Daily Caller.

Next month is Obama’s 16-day summer vacation break to “Martha’s Vineyard in Mass…he will have taken all or part of 141 days of vacation, time split between summers on the island, winters in his native Hawaii and birthday weekends at his Chicago home,” stated the Washington Examiner.

“Obama has been criticized for taking costly and lengthy vacations, especially compared to the short trips most Americans take. The U.S. Travel Association reports that the average American vacation lasts just 3.7 days.”

The cost of the Obama’s trip to Hawaii, from June 27 to July 3, included three countries in Africa, Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. According to Air Force records, transportation costs for flights were a whooping $228,288 an HOUR. $8,104,224 was the flight expense alone!

According to the Washington Post, the African trip cost taxpayers just around $100 million. The Honolulu vacations cost taxpayers right around $15,885,585.30 according to Judicial Watch. “Here we have a president that gets on the budget line by line, but this apparently doesn’t apply to his travel…We’ve got this financial crisis here in Washington and the president and his family need to be more sensitive as to the cost concerned with his travel. We are especially concerned about the excessive luxury travel, such as his trip to Hawaii,” stated Fitton.

It also seems we taxpayers are not privy to the actual cost of the Obama’s escapades. Information pertaining to items such as the cost of housing, Secret Service and their equipment, staff, meals and beverages are frequently not available to view or missing completely from the data reports.

According to Fitton, “The Obamas are abusing the public trust and the taxpayers with unnecessary luxurious vacations and travel. These staggering costs show why these documents were covered up and we had to sue in federal court to get them. Another transparency fail for the Obama gang.”

It is disconcerting, to say the least, that one would have to sue our public servant in order to get an expense report. The answer is yes, Mr. President, you work for us. Indeed, there are things of a security nature that would make it unwise to share with the public…but a vacation expense report?

These are the expense items that we do know the White House refuses to disclose for “security reasons,” according to Watchdog.org:

 

  • An entire floor of an office building in Kailua on the canal during the president’s stay.
  • Security upgrades, such as bulletproof glass and additional phone lines added to private homes; existing security systems are disabled.
  • Rental cars and fuel for staff and security, as well as additional costs for Secret Service and White House staff traveling ahead of the president.

 

“The cost to taxpayers of President Obama’s travel, especially his luxury vacation travel, are beyond pale…and the secrecy surrounding these costs shows that Obama’s vows of transparency are rubbish,” said Fitton.

 This begs the question that if you’re trying to hide vacation expense reports what other, much more important items, are you hiding from us?

Washington Pot Shop Customers Cheer 1st Legal Sale

imageedit_4_9062128745Cale Holdsworth strode to the counter at Top Shelf Cannabis, inspected and sniffed a glass jar filled with marijuana, and said: “I’ll take two grams.”

Holdsworth paid $26.50 and held up the brown bag containing his pot as people applauded the store’s first transaction as Washington on Tuesday became the second state to allow people to buy marijuana legally in the U.S. without a doctor’s note.

“This is a great moment,” said the 29-year-old from Abilene, Kansas, as a swarm of reporters and television cameras recorded the moment.

People began buying marijuana at 8 a.m. at Top Shelf Cannabis, which started selling the drug as soon as it was allowed under state regulations. Before it opened, several dozen people lined up outside the shop in this liberal college town of about 80,000 north of Seattle.

Holdsworth was first in line, along with his girlfriend, Sarah Gorton, and her younger brother. They showed up at 4 a.m.

Gorton said the trio was in Bellingham for her grandfather’s 84th birthday. State law allows both Washington residents and people from out of state to purchase a limited amount of pot.

“It’s just a happy coincidence and an opportunity we’re not going to have for a long time,” said Gorton, a 24-year-old with dreadlocks and homemade jewelry. “I’m really thrilled to be a part of something that I never thought would happen.”

In Seattle, hundreds of people waited in the warm sunshine outside the city’s first pot shop, CannabisCity, which opened at noon.

Store owner James Lathrop, holding a large scissors to cut the ribbon for the official opening, said it was time to “free the weed.”

The first customer, 65-year-old retiree Deb Greene, hugged and thanked Alison Holcomb, the author of Washington’s marijuana law, before she placed her order for 8 grams, total $160.01 with tax.

“It’s so remarkable,” Greene said. “We’re showing the way.”

The start of legal pot sales in Washington marks a major step that’s been 20 months in the making.

Washington and Colorado stunned much of the world by voting in November 2012 to legalize marijuana for adults over 21, and to create state-licensed systems for growing, selling and taxing the pot. Sales began in Colorado on Jan. 1.

Washington issued its first 24 retail licenses Monday. An Associated Press survey of the licensees showed only about six planned to open Tuesday: two in Bellingham, one in Seattle, one in Spokane, one in Prosser and one in Kelso. Some were set to open later this week or next, while others said it could be a month or more before they could acquire marijuana to sell.

It’s been a bumpy ride in Washington, with product shortages expected as growers and sellers scrambled to prepare. Pot prices were expected to be higher than what people pay at the state’s unregulated medical marijuana dispensaries.

That was largely due to the short supply of legally produced pot in the state. Although more than 2,600 people applied to become licensed growers, fewer than 100 have been approved — and only about a dozen were ready to harvest by early this month.

Colorado already had a regulated medical marijuana system, making for a smoother transition when it allowed those dispensaries to start selling to recreational pot shops Jan. 1.

Washington’s medical system is unregulated, so officials here were starting from scratch as they immersed themselves in the pot world and tried to come up with regulations that made sense for the industry and the public.

The rules include protocols for testing marijuana and requirements for child-resistant packaging. Officials also had to determine things like how much criminal history was too much to get a license, and what types of security systems pot shops and growers should have.

Washington law allows the sale of up to an ounce of dried marijuana, 16 ounces of pot-infused solids, 72 ounces of pot-infused liquids or 7 grams of concentrated marijuana, like hashish, to adults over 21.

Brian Kost, a 45-year-old Bellingham man, was among the first in line at Top Shelf Cannabis, in an industrial area off Interstate 5. He said he hadn’t smoked marijuana in 17 years because he didn’t like the hassle of trying to find it on the illegal market.

“With the chance to buy it legally, I just couldn’t pass it up,” Kost said. “I never thought I’d see the day.”

Gorton said she, her brother and boyfriend planned to head back to their relatives’ house and sample their purchase.

“We’re probably going to break open a bottle of wine, sit on the porch and enjoy this,” she said.

Could the White House be Coming Down Like a House of Cards?

imageedit_5_2203792702Could the Internal Revenue Service scandal bring down the White House? Republican Michele Bachmann (Minn) believes it could do just that.

The IRS blames dated technology for the loss of emails from 2009 through mid-2011 do to a computer crash and says that they will likely never be recovered. Ironically, or not, this is the time period encompassing the first year the IRS in Cincinnati began looking through Tea Party applications more closely.

Republicans in Congress became incensed and began accusing the IRS commissioner John Koskinen of not being truthful. Republicans, and most, understand that back-ups are required. Not having a back-up of years of emails did not set right with most.

Democrats, however, were quick to point out that there is no evidence of any wrongdoing or that the computer crash was intentional in the slightest. Democrats accuse Republicans of stirring the pot with new and unfounded allegations.

Lois Lerner, former IRS official, has been pleading her Fifth Amendment rights and has only spoken through her lawyers since this scandal over lost emails erupted over a year ago.

“This is a so-called congressional investigation with no pretense of objectivity or bipartisanship,” stated Taylor, Lerner’s attorney. “Critics of Ms. Lerner and the IRS seize indiscriminately on small pieces of fact to claim they prove scandal.”

“It’s a scandal of epic proportions, big enough that it could bring down a presidency…The only thing that’s phony are all of the denials that are coming out of the White House,” stated Bachmann.

In May 2013 Lerner admitted publicly that certain political groups had inappropriately been targeted by the agency.  Over the months, the scandal has escalated with new stories fueling suspicions that the Obama administration has used the IRS as a political tool.

“In the absence of a special prosecutor, the best opportunity for piercing the veil of secrecy and evasion that surrounds the IRS handling of groups perceived as enemies of the Obama administration lies is civil litigation. The National Organization for Marriage has just obtained a $50,000 settlement from the IRS for its criminal release of confidential donor information to an opposition group.”

“Confidential tax return information about the National Organization for Marriage donors was published on the website of a political adversary. But so far Eric Holder’s Justice Department is not pursuing inquiries into who feloniously released that information,” according to American Thinker.

When her computer crashed, Lerner lost an untold about of emails, items that were actively being sought by congressional investigators. Lerner is being investigated for her role in the agency’s controversy that they improperly scrutinized application by some Tea Party groups,” and publicly admitted as much.

There are also claims that Lerner singled out GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley implying she was in “cahoots” with the justice Department.  Taylor stated that Lerner neither saved nor printed official emails on a backup computer and many dispute this claim. Email back-up is a record-keeping law.

“Lerner’s admission…that the IRS had been singling out applications for tax-exempt status using terms such as “tea party.” Followed by a critical inspector general report days later, set off the original storm. The groups in question were seeking status as a social welfare organization, or a 501(c)(4), which is allowed to engage in a limited amount of political activity.”

Yesterday, a pro-Israel group seeking a tax exempt status was told its application was being held up because “…these cases are being sent to a special unit in the DC office to determine whether the organization’s activities contradict the Administration’s public policies.”

Unlawful viewpoint discrimination is what Z-Street’s lawsuit claims. Washington, DC’s federal court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, an Obama appointee, dismissed the lawsuit stating that Z-Street was suing over “viewpoint discrimination evidenced by what it was told by IRS agent Diane Gentry about contradicting administration policies – the process by which the IRS made the determination on tax exempt status.” In other words, and according to the Jerusalem Post, “The Z Street case may be what forces the IRS to pull its carefully constructed curtain and reveal how it made decisions regarding organizations deemed out of step with the current US administration.”

Published in 2012 by the Human Rights Campaign, which are supporters of gay rights, is the donor information of John Eastman’s association that opposes same-sex marriages.

“As a former tax official, if I would have done that as an employee of the IRS, I would have been refereed to the Justice Department, the criminal division,” stated Bachmann. “I would have been subject to a felony of five years hard time, in a federal penitentiary. That’s what we are talking about, that’s how serious this is. The IRS has broken laws and the American people need a redress of this grievance.”

On Monday, an MSNBC panel believed this premise of the IRS targeting “conservative groups, misleading investigators, and then failing to produce evidence relating to that investigation because they had destroyed it,” wasn’t that big a problem or worry but declared it “the single most important issue of our time.”

According to HotAir, MSMBC also stated, inaccurately, that “the liberal groups were also targeted by the IRS with equal fervor.”

A Fox News poll from last week, however, shows quite a different story. It showed that “74 percent support a congressional investigation into the targeting scandal, including 86 percent of Republicans, 65 percent of surveyed independents, and 66 percent of Democratic respondents.” The poll went on to declare “76 percent believe the IRS intentionally destroyed hardware in order to hide evidence relating to the targeting scandal from investigators.”

A survey from A Quinnipiac University last week also showed that “74 percent want a special counsel appointed in order to investigate the scandal. Again, there is no partisan, age, gender, or race gap in the findings…63 percent of Democrats and 78 percent of independents calling for a special prosecutor,” reported The Hill.

Bachmann stated that the IRS scandal “is only the beginning…We also know that over 1.1 million documents were wrongfully sent by Lois Lerner to the Justice Department criminal division. The criminal division only looks at employee behavior but yet Lois Lerner wanted the Justice Department to look at the behavior of the non-profits themselves.”

We may never know how many emails are gone but the IRS was able to piece together emails from 82 IRS employees and come up with around 24,000 Lerner emails from 2009-2011.

“The IRS is committed to working with Congress…the IRS has remained focused on being thorough and responding as quickly as possible to the wide-ranging requests from Congress while taking steps to protect underlying taxpayer information,” stated the IRS.

Lerner’s case is now held by the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia after having been found in contempt of Congress in May, and after having refused to answer questions that could incriminate her.

Aborted Fetuses Burned For Fuel in Oregon – Graphic

Human, aborted imageedit_2_9577583126fetuses are being shipped to the United States from British Columbia and being incinerated to provide electricity for Oregon residents.

Thinking this too outlandish and, frankly, quite unsettling, I checked with Snopes.com to make sure this wasn’t some sick prank. I can assure you it is quite true.

The remains of aborted humans are being shipped to a US power facility, in order to provide electricity to Oregon residents.

“The British Colombia Health Ministry has confirmed that ‘medical waste’ is sent to our country to be converted to electricity in waste-to-power plants. ‘Medical waste,’ in this brave new world of ours, includes amputated limbs, cancerous tissue, and the bodies of murdered children,” according to Snopes.com.

The Oregon incinerator was stopped by the County commissioners on Thursday from receiving any waste from medical facilities until it is ensured that fetal tissue will no longer be burned for fuel.

Sam Brentano and Janet Carlson, Marion County commissioners, said they strongly disagree with abortions and that they were “horrified” that the Marion County Resource Recovery Facility could actually be using human remains to fuel Oregon.

“We’re going to get to the bottom of it,” said Carlson. “I want to know who knew, when they knew, how long they had known this was going on.

Brentano acknowledged that all human tissue can be accepted at the waste-to-energy plant, but stated, “No rule or law has been broken, but there’s an ethical standard that’s been broken.”

“We provide an important service to the people of this state and it would be a travesty if this program is jeopardized due to this finding. We thought our ordinance excluded this type of material at the waste-to-energy facility. We will take immediate action to ensure a process is developed to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries,” continued Brentano.

“We are outraged and disgusted that this material could be included in medical waste received at the facility,” Carlson stated. “We did not know this practice was occurring until today. We are taking immediate action and initiating discussions with Covanta Marion to make certain that this type of medical waste is not accepted in the future.”

The United Kingdom went through a similar experience last month when similar reports of aborted fetuses being incinerated for energy caused upheaval and caused the U.K. authorities to halt the “totally unacceptable” practice.

According to reports, over 15,000 babies, miscarried or aborted, were included in the clinical waste and incinerated.

“As many as 10 employees at England’s National Health Service admitted to having burned fetal remains that had been mixed with garbage, and two other employees said the aborted or miscarried bodies were used in the country’s “waste-to-energy” plants to generate power for heat,” reported Britain’s Telegraph newspaper.

The Obama administration’s Securities and Exchange Commission stated on February 28, 2012, that this type of use is well within the confines of “ordinary business.”

An email from Gayle Atteberry, an Oregon Right to Life’s Executive Director, was sent to LifeNews when she got wind of this new “alternative energy.”

As horrified as I am to hear of the bodies of Canada’s smallest citizens being burned to create electricity for our homes, I am not surprised. When we do not respect the unborn babies’ right to life, what is stopping us from using their bodies for our own gain, whether that be burning them for electricity or destroying them for embryonic stem cell research? The next question is: are Oregon’s babies being burned as well?”

Many pro-life advocates tend to compare abortion with the Holocaust for which the pro-abortion quickly condemn them. Though, the comparison is a gruesome reminder of the despicable way humans were treated in Nazi Germany.

According to Jeff Bickford, the environmental services division manager in Marion County, waste material has been taken from British Columbia for up to 7 years. “You’ve got biological agent and infectious diseases in there”…that need to be incinerated.

Brentano stated that in order to insure that no fetus tissue enter the incinerator, new ordinances need to be written.

Carlson asked during a meeting, “So if someone loses an arm, loses a finger?”

Brentano replied, “That should go in and be burned, as gross as that is.”

The Department of Health issued a ban prohibiting hospitals from the misuse of the bodies of babies “victimized by abortion any further.”

Sudanese Christian Mom Spared From Death ReArrested 24 Hours Later

imageedit_2_4608762815It was for renouncing Islam and embracing Christianity that Meriam Ibrahim, 27, was sentenced to hang for apostasy, igniting outrage from at home and from overseas. She was released on Monday and arrested again Tuesday as she and her family were trying to leave the country of Africa.

The National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) agents, about 40 of them, detained her, her husband and their two children at Khartoum Airport, just 24 hours after her release.

A head Sudanese official said she would be released “soon,” according to BBC News. “Abdullahi Alzareg from the ministry of foreign affairs told BBC’s Newshour program that Mrs. Ibrahim had been arrested because she did not have the correct travel documents.”

Then why did it take almost 40 agents to arrest her at the airport and why did they detain the family?

“We don’t have a reason as to why,” said Al-Sharif Ali, a member of her legal team. “Her husband is also being detained. We have tried to see them, but it has been very difficult. The National Security Force will not allow us to meet with them.”

Ibrahim is Sudanese and she was using emergency South Sudanese papers with a U.S. visa. Her husband, a Christian from South Sudan, has U.S. nationality.

The facility Ibrahim, Daniel Wani and their children were taken to is used by Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Service. “A source close to the family told FoxNews.com…They have travel documents furnished by the U.S. embassy, but Ibrahim did not have a passport, the source said.”

“She is either banned from traveling or the NISS could also create “paper issues” if they don’t want her to leave the country.”

A man who claims to be the brother of Ibrahim, Al-Hadi, said on Tuesday that his family’s honor had been tarnished because of the case and he is seeking revenge.

Ibrahim, while in court, denied being related to Al-Hadi.

The whole can of worms started when a relative of Ibrahim’s, a Muslim, said her family was stunned to realize she had married a Christian after having been missing for a number of years, according to her lawyer.

Because Ibrahim’s father was a Muslim the courts considered her a Muslim even though she said she had never practiced Islam and professed to be a Christian. “She was charged with adultery, because a Muslim woman’s marriage to a Christian man is illegal in Sudan, and with apostasy, accused of illegally renouncing what was alleged to be her original faith,” stated CNN.

“I am a Christian,” Ibrahim stated during her hearing last month, “and I will remain a Christian.” Her mother is an Ethiopian Orthodox Christian and raised her children as such. Ibrahim’s father, a Muslim, abandoned her at the age of 6.

“It’s very disappointing,” Elshareef, the family’s lawyer, said. “They were very angry. They took us (family’s lawyers) outside, and took the family to a NISS detention center. They have not been given access to lawyers.”

Because the appeals court had overturned all of Ibrahim’s convictions, Elshareef believes that political differences within their government about the case could have played a role in preventing her from leaving.

“I’m very concerned. When people do not respect the court, they might do anything,” said Elshareef.

This case attracted international criticism and more than 1 million people supported a crusade by Amnesty International to set her free.

David Cameron, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, said he was “absolutely appalled” by the treatment given to her. Political and “religious leaders, celebrities and human rights organizations” condemned her imprisonment. The British Foreign Office and U.S. sate department welcomed her release.

“This is a deeply troubling development,” stated Jordan Sekulow, executive director of the American Center for Law and Justice. The ACLJ collected over 300,000 signatures in a petition demanding her release. “The decision to take the entire family into custody is a violation of international law and we call on Sudan to release them without delay. Meriam and her family’s fate are now unclear.”

One of the Greatest Intelligence Failures in American History

imageedit_2_5041333720One thing about the advance of ISIS is the deathly silence from our best ally in the Middle East, Israel. What concerns me is that the U.S. seems to believe time is on our side relating to ISIS – and we’re not taking this sophisticated threat seriously. I pray Israel is.

It’s always helpful to gain a window into the enemy by reading the enemies’ words. Franklin Lamb, writing for Media With Conscience was afforded an opportunity to interview members of the Islamist army, who clearly laid out their frightening plans.

He writes, “One need not be present to understand the unfolding “Jihadi Spring” is fueling the plans and perhaps destiny of ascendant Islamists in this region with the increasing help of in-country nationalists, including remnants of the Iraqi Baath Party. This, according to more than a dozen ardent supporters of The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), known locally as DAASH, whose representatives allowed this observer over the past six months to interview some of its supporters.”

Lamb explains that the final “S” in the acronym “ISIS” relates to the Arabic word “al-Sham” which itself is variously used to refer to the Levant, Syria or even Damascus. But DAASH (ISIS) means the Levant or Eastern Mediterranean including Cyprus, Palestine, Jordan, Syria, and southern Turkey. ISIS has just announced that Raqqa, the only one of 14 Governorates it controls in Syria, is now the “Capital” of their emerging “Caliphate” which so far is a swathe of territory encompassing much of eastern and northern Syria and western and northern Iraq. The Emir is to be their military strategist and leader and successor of Abu Mus’ab Zarqawi, Dr. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

What we fail to comprehend is that an Islamic caliphate is a borderless empire ruled by singular leader under strict Islamic law, the Koran. It does not respect secular leadership, as we are witnessing in Libya, Syria, and elsewhere in the Islamic world. In Egypt, the removal of the Muslim Brotherhood set back their march towards being a part of an Islamic caliphate – which our own Secretary of State has problems understanding.

So what does ISIS think of Israel’s existence?

Lamb says jihadist recruiters working with a claimed new specialized DAASH unit organized at the beginning of 2013 are “focusing exclusively on destroying the Zionist regime occupying Palestine.” DAASH’s “Al Quds Unit” (AQU) is currently working to broaden its influence in more than 60 Palestinian camps and gatherings from Gaza, across Occupied Palestine, to Jordan, and Lebanon up to the north of Syria seeking to enlist support as it prepares to “Liberate” Palestine.

How in God’s name did the Obama administration not see this coming? This may be one of the greatest intelligence failures in American history. President Obama referred to this as “whack-a-mole” – hardly, this is not just some terrorist organization; it is an army with a structure. It is no different from Hezbollah in Lebanon or Hamas in Gaza.

A DAASH member supposedly claims, “Zionists call us masked, sociopathic murderers but we are much more complicated and representative of those seeking justice than they portray us. Are we more barbaric than the Zionist terrorists who massacred at Dier Yassin, Shatila twice at Qana, and committed dozens of other massacres? History will judge us after we free Palestine. DAASH claims it can do the job in 72 months.

Lamb says there are several reasons why Palestinians should hold out hope for ISIS succeeding in their cause when all other Arab, Muslim, and Western-claimed resistance supporters have failed. “All countries in this region are playing the sectarian card just as they have long played the Palestinian card but the difference with ISIS is that we are serious about Palestine and they are not. Tel Aviv will fall as fast as Mosul when the time is right,” a DAAH ally explained. Another member insisted, “DAASH will fight where no one else is willing.”

ISIS appears uniformly contemptuous of the “Zionist regime” and its army and also appears eager to fight them in the near future despite expectation that Israel will use nuclear weapons.

“Do you think that we do not have access to nuclear devices? The Zionist knows that we do and if we ever believe they are about to use theirs we will not hesitate. After the Zionists are gone, Palestine will have to be decontaminated and rebuilt just like areas where there has been radiation released.”

This is a real threat and nothing ISIS has done is contrary to their intent and purpose. We do not want an entrenched Islamist army as we have in Hezbollah and Hamas. The situation for Israel is dire since those two Islamic terrorist formations exist to their north and south. If ISIS is successful in moving against Jordan, then there is a greater threat to the east. The clock is ticking and truly, I don’t believe Barack Hussein Obama gives a damn.

Is the Obama Administration Posturing to Start Another War?

 

imageedit_2_8484186291“Recently I was asked why I am writing so much about “politics.” Well, I have not written too much about U.S. politics because the two party system is hopelessly broken where a vote either way is either thrown away counted incorrectly and really doesn’t matter because your choices are two sides of the same coin. Writing about U.S. internal politics is pointless. I have written quite a bit recently about international or “geo” politics and even make comments on religion. There is a valid reason for this, because when all is said and done it all boils down to the dollar which is becoming like a political ping pong ball.

“If you ignore geopolitics or religion (in the Middle East) today then you might as well spin your self around 3 times with a blindfold on and then try to walk a straight line. Without understanding global politics, you will have zero percent chance of ever understanding where “this” is headed. I believe that there is now a raging fire behind the financial scenes. The tried and true way to divert attention from anything “internally bad” has always been to either start a war overseas or create some other scandal or false flag event.

“The above said, we (the U.S,) are pushing and shoving in two areas, the Ukraine and Iraq situations. Let me take these one by one so that I can add them up for you. First, let’s look at Ukraine. There exists anecdotal evidence that we in fact stirred up this pot to get it boiling in the first place, but let’s assume that the unrest would have started and did start as we are “told.” So far we have sanctioned Russia twice which are like pokes in the eye. They have remained relatively restrained to their point. Today, Russia has somewhat turned the tables on the U.S. and rather than go tit for tat, they announced an “anti dollar” policy. Putin’s aide proposes anti-dollar alliance to force U.S. to end Ukraine’s civil war.

“Please understand what is happening here, or I should say “already” happened. For Russia to announce an “Anti Dollar” policy is the equivalent of a declaration of war. Were this to have been done by anyone, anywhere on the planet even 10 years ago would have resulted in immediate military action by the U.S,. Maybe this is Russia’s way of getting Washington to throw the first punch but I don’t think so. Rather, I believe that Russia has already held talks with many other foreign nations to get their anticipated response were Russia to announce this anti dollar policy. We know that the Chinese are on board, we know that 9 our of 10 Gazprom customer are OK with non dollar settlement and who knows how far and wide Russia may have had high level discussions on this topic. My point is this, Russia would NEVER, EVER make a leap (and do it publicly) as big as announcing an anti dollar policy if they had not already lined up 99% of their ducks. Do you see what I am saying here? The deal, in my opinion, to dump the dollar had already been planned and is being hatched right here and now by the Russians! I will get back to this momentarily but we have another hot spot in Iraq that I believe is connected and needs to be explained.

“ISIS” has run wild in northern Iraq taking 5 city/towns and leaving a trail of murdered and beheaded Iraqis in their wake. Again, there is evidence that ISIS in Syria has received U.S. funding but let’s assume they did not so as not to muddy the waters further. ISIS is now about 30 miles outside of Baghdad and the U.S. has received requests from Iraq for help. Iraq is run currently by Shia’s, ISIS are Sunni so there is your religious divide. Now, Saudi Arabia is Sunni while Iraq is primarily Shia, another divide but one that is very important. Saudi Arabia has now warned Iran to stay out of the fray in Iraq and it turns out that we (the U.S.) have had talks with Iran about helping their Shia brethren in Iraq. Do you see the problems here? Oh, and to illustrate the problems, Saudi Arabia has now warned Iran to stay out of the fray as the U.S. negotiate their help. This is the current picture; our Middle East policy looks like it is being formulated and implemented by a bunch of moronic clowns trying to play one side against the other but ends up in a dead end of logic.

“OK, so let me add this 1+1 together for you. We have pushed Russia far enough for them to publicly announce an unprecedented “anti-dollar policy.” As I said above, they would never have done this on their own as it would mean their financial destruction. Russia has also shut off the gas supply to Ukraine…knowing full well that Ukraine would then shut Russia’s supply of gas through their pipelines to Europe into the mix. Will this bring Europe closer to the U.S.? Or, will it prod Europe to tell the U.S. to ease up on sanctions as their economy starts to shut down and the weather begins to get cold? This is “1” which is the ridiculous policy we are following in the Middle East. Iran is and has already been shut off of the dollar, what will happen if (I believe “when” is a foregone conclusion) Saudi Arabia announces that they will no longer accept only dollars for oil? Actually, what if they were to announce that they will no longer accept dollars at all? And that if you want their oil you must pay in something OTHER THAN dollars? How would this work out?

“To do the “addition” for you, this works out to the death of the dollar. It would not, in my opinion, be a long and convoluted process. Jim Sinclair believes that the dollar will trade down to the 70-72 level from here which would be a 10-12% drop…on its way down to 56. I don’t usually disagree with Jim on many topics but I do on this one because if Russia were to attract Saudi Arabia to their anti dollar policy, country after country would then follow (or are already lined up to). It would be like flipping a light switch and the dollar’s light would just go out. Maybe we move to the 56 level but I cannot see it holding for long without a reset or going to an internal/external dollar which is another subject altogether.

“Before finishing, I’d like to mention one other aspect that you should expect. When this happens, “dollars” which are now largely held overseas will come back home to…buy “stuff” (dumped) in a frenzied and panicked manner. This will be incredibly inflationary. Some of these dollars will be pointed at “our” gold. You can expect a massive amount of contracts for silver and gold standing for delivery that will not be willing to accept “dollar bribes” to accept a premium and “go away” quietly in the night; I believe that a force majeure will be the result. If I am correct about my 1+1 premise, it would be foolish for “the world” not to finish off the COMEX and LBMA.

“So, why so much politics? Because foreign politics seems to be aimed directly at the dollar at the same time our own foreign policies (and internal) seem to simultaneously be aimed at our own currency’s Achilles heel. What is happening right now is all about the dollar and its planned demise. Let me remind you that gold IS the “anti dollar.” I believe that right now you are witnessing the reason for these many years I have screamed “gold” from the rooftops for anyone willing to listen. I believe the plan is to destroy thoroughly the dollar. Externally for sure and possibly even from within if you view our official financial and economic policies, no one could be this ignorant. Could they? If this is the case and I 100% believe it is, you would then want to own as much “anit-dollar” as possible.”

Rising Gasoline Prices – Do All Roads Lead to the White House?

 

imageedit_2_4711911138The price of gasoline seems to be out of control with the average price per gallon in the United States at a whooping $3.74, and most likely rising. That is a 29-cent increase within the last month alone. According to the Associated Press, the price of gasoline has never been more costly during the summer months.

Today, June 19, is the 1274rd day that the national average price of regular gasoline costing above $3 a gallon. That’s almost three and a half years.

Many American’s tend to blame President Obama for the continuing cost increases for gasoline but are they correct in their assumptions?

Summer consistently brings high gas prices and people have begun placing responsibility for the price escalation on Obama. “Blaming presidents for gas prices is nothing new, and the upcoming election hasn’t helped curb the attacks,” reported US News.

The president isn’t putting forth the effort to control rising gasoline prices, critics say, by utilizing U.S. oil reserves. “The president actually has some opinions that make a lot of sense to a lot of Americans and that option, of course, is to increase American energy production,” stated Sen. John Barrasso, a Wyoming Republican.

The Obama supporters believe that the cost of gasoline is out of his hands. They believe that spikes in oil prices are hard to analyze and they indicate that conflict with Syria, strain with Iran and demand from China are the real culprits to the increases in oil prices.

There are others who believe the EPA is to blame for the continued spike in gasoline prices. “Part of the blame lies with the EPA, which monitors the renewable fuel standard and is responsible for determining what the ration of crude to renewable in the gasoline mix will be each year. The figures for 2014 have not been finalized and are, in fact late. The proposal currently on the table would require 15.21 billion gallons to be blended in 2014, considerably less than the 16.55 billion gallons blended in 2013. This first ever cut in the required amount was lauded as a step in the right direction by industry leaders, including, Charlie Drevna, (president of the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufactures Association), when it was first announced but, he told reporters Tuesday, it was worrisome that EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy ‘has been remarking that the volumetric requirements for the finalized [standard] may be different than the proposed rule.’ The powerful pro-ethanol lobby would benefit if the number was revised upwards in the final rule, requiring more corn-based ethanol be produced and sugar-based ethanol be imported from Brazil to meet the standards, but at the expense of American consumers who, because the promise of cellulosic ethanol has not yet been realized, are putting part of their food money in their fuel tank every time they fill up,” reported Frontiers of Freedom.

On Monday, the Associated Press reported biofules being made from the waste of harvested corn plants could actually be harmful to the environment. $500 million dollars was spent on a university study, paid for by the federal government (us), that disputes arguments from the Obama Administration that biofules help to deter climate change. “Released in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Climate Change, it found biofules made with corn residue release 7 percent more greenhouse gases in the early years compared with conventional gasoline. It may be the whole business was a fool’s errand from the start,” reports Frontiers of Freedom.

The corn ethanol was supposed to be a conduit to improved and non-crude renewables “such as cellulosic ethanol.” But things like cellulosic ethanol are not available yet and won’t be made commercially available until the year 2022. “Meanwhile we’re supposed to keep on putting more and more corn into the system in order to meet the requirements of the renewable fuel standard year after year.” Does this make sense?

“They can export more if you’re in the export market because this law doesn’t apply to exports or they could cut runs, neither of which is good for the American consumer. The only way out of the mess Congress has created, it seems, is to repeal the renewable fuel standard, once and for all,” stated Drevna.

The EPA could certainly be blamed for the rising costs of gasoline but they wouldn’t be alone. Many are also blaming the unrest in Iraq and Syria. So just what is the impact of Iraq and Syria on the oil prices in the United States?

One of the largest oil reserves on the planet is in Iraq and has surpassed the Islamic Republic of Iran as the second largest manufacturer of crude oil. The world’s economy, as well as the price of oil, is largely impacted by any unsteadiness in Iraq. In turn, this instability greatly affects the ordinary citizens of the U.S.

“The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria have already been capable of bringing a significant surge in oil prices. Brent crude hit 114.69 dollars a barrel this week; the largest weekly gain this year. And, of course, countries such as the Islamic Republic of Iran and monarchies such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar will be the ones that benefit from this rise. On the other hand, ordinary people in the U.S. will have to pay the price.”

The swift rise of Jihadi Islamists is much more treacherous than Al-Qaeda, according to Front Page, both economically and ideologically. “There recent triumph and captures of several parts of Iraq and Syria may have tremendous repercussions on American national security, the global economy, and the lives of every American. Unfortunately, President Obama still insists on ignoring the danger and seriousness of these extremist movements.”

There are many factors that contribute to the rising cost of fuel in our country, from issues with the EPA to the ongoing situations in Iraq and Syria, all over the world for that matter. Unlimitedly, however, don’t all roads lead to the white house?

Cyber-Terrorist Landmines

imageedit_15_6045088533It’s been 13 years since the 9/11 attacks on the United States and aL Qaeda is at it again, though this time using a technological platform.

John Carlin, the assistant attorney general for national security in our Justice Department, stated that al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri released a video threatening that a terrorist group is planning a cyber attack on the United States infrastructure. It was suggested that the financial market or electrical grids may be the target.

“We’re in a pre-9/11 moment, in some respects, with cyber,” stated Carlin. “It’s clear that the terrorists want to use cyber-enabled means to cause the maximum amount of destruction to our infrastructure. It’s clear because they have said it.”

The government of China, also accused of militarily hacking against the U.S., challenged the Obama administration to provide that evidence.

The Chinese said, “If you have evidence, hard evidence that we’re committing this type of activity that you can prove in court, show us.” America did just that.

China’s taunt led to the indictment of a hacking group referred to as Unit 63198, according to Carlin, that consisted of 5 People’s Liberation Army (PLA) members.

China’s hacking “activity was cutting across the span of different American businesses—nuclear to solar, to steel, to labor,” Carlin said.

If China has been caught with their hand in the cookie jar it is only a matter of time before others will be caught as well. Though Carlin did not specify which nation states were involved, he did state that terrorists “have the capability now to cause significant damage through cyber attacks.”

Terrorists, through cyber attacks, have the ability and the means to orchestrate horrendous damage. These are threats that need to be taken very seriously, cautions the Justice Department. “They cited a recent cyber attack on Aramco, a Saudi Arabian oil company, to show what could happen to the U.S… During the Aramco attack, 30,000 computers that controlled key elements of the company’s infrastructure were completely destroyed,” according to TellMeNow.com.

A cyber crime group with the code name, Game Over Zeus, was recently taken down by the Justice Department. It is a prime example that the terrorists are real and that they mean business.

“In Game Over Zeus, cyber-criminals used a botnet—a network of hundreds of thousands of hijacked computers—to steal U.S. corporate data and encrypt the information and then extort payments from the companies that owned the data to release it,” according to The Washington Free Beacon.

“And I think many of the people and the industries that are in this room would pay because of the important information we keep and sometimes life-saving information if we think of medical records,” stated Carlin.

The Justice Department, despite the terrorization, expressed hope saying that they have improved their observation skills in the last few years and believe they will be equipped to stop the terrorists before they stop us.

“From our perspective we have to apply the same type of approach that we did to terrorism to the national security cyber threat. If a terrorist group gets that same type of access or capability, they’re not going to ask for money and they are not going to wait till they try to destroy the data. So there’s a real urgency I think now and it is going to require private and public sector cooperation given how much of the infrastructure is in private hands,” said Carlin.

The al Qaeda Digital Army and the Tunesian Electronic Army, identified by the U.S. intelligence agencies, are attempting to organize jihadists around the world to perform cyber attacks on U.S. infrastructure and are referring to the cyber attacks as Operation Black Summer. Though there are no details being disclosed, one group stated they had recently made attacks to U.S. financial institutions.

A message from the two groups was posted to the Ansar al-Mujahideen Network, al Qaeda-affiliated site, on the 25th of March by a forum member calling himself Bahith. Bahith was basically encouraging hackers to “Target US Vital Services,” according to Flash//Critic Cyber Threat News.

“We bring you glad tidings that the ‘Al-Qaeda Digital Army’ and the ‘Tunisian Electronic Army’ are preparing and mobilizing members to carry out a comprehensive electronic raid to target the vital services of the United States of America,” stated the posting.

“It is also essential to note that this raid will be a global one in which all the enemies of the United States, whether Muslims or non-Muslims, will take part,” the post went on to say.

Carlin stated, “We’ve become much, much better at observing what is currently going on in terms of the information that, as we speak, is being taken from hard working Americans who are looking to create and innovate, and it’s being stolen, day in and day out, and used by their competitors to the disadvantage of the American companies. From our perspective we have to apply the same type of approach that we did to terrorism to the national security cyber threat.”

Carlin stated, “We will continue to increase the cost of committing this type of activity on American soil…until it stops.”

It was never a question of “if” we would be cyber-attacked but rather “when” we would be attacked. Clearly the United States is more than vulnerable and open to cyber horrors that most Americans are not prepared for.

Cyberly-speaking, we are all walking on the same soil, Americans and terrorists alike, and the landmines are only steps away.

Obama’s Illegal Immigration

imageedit_2_2185033943The civilized world is watching President Obama single handedly eliminate America’s southwestern borders and open the country to a deluge of illegal aliens in willful, direct contravention of the United States Constitution. Once in America the vast majority of these illegals will be granted amnesty, be on welfare, commit crimes, and be United States citizens. The spin from Obama and his sycophants, including many ranking Republicans, is that these are needy children who will ultimately enhance the value of America by adding more diversity and pursuing the endless opportunities presented to them in our country. Implicit therein is that Obama’s illegal act trumps the law. The truth of the matter is that the great majorities of these illegals are not children and cannot possibly benefit America.

The purpose of this article is to address the reason Obama is doing this and the subtle way he has sold it to the utter fools who are buying and propagating his pitch. Discussing the devastating effects Obama’s blatant constitutional and criminal violations will have on America and the free world, as well as the complicity of Congress, is for another day.

Why Obama Is Encouraging Illegal Immigration: Obama’s reason is the easy straightforward part of the complex issue. In my opinion Obama is intentionally destroying the culture, values, and traditions of America with the intent of supplanting them with an ideology of his preference. The illegal immigration he ordered and its disastrous ramifications are a component in his plan of destruction.

America is being adversely affected by Obama’s insidious plan in ways that are beyond comprehension. For the sake of brevity suffice to say that nothing beneficial to America will result from his illegal, reckless, and wanton acts. The results will, however, benefit Obama in achieving his goal as aforesaid by permanently damaging America in multiple ways that are too numerous to list. I’m sure you get the picture and can imagine the endless devastation.

How Obama Is Marketing Illegal Immigration: Obama is marketing his endeavor of destruction by using Cultural Marxist Political Correctness, hereinafter referred to as PC, with which he is very familiar.

At the risk of redundancy, however, some background is necessary in order to better understand the reason PC was developed, its effectiveness, and the subtleties involved relative to Obama’s successful marketing campaign.

Cultural Marxism and Its Goal: Cultural Marxism was founded at the Frankfurt School in Frankfurt, Germany by a group of German intellectuals circa 1923. They were Marxists who translated Marxism from economic to cultural terms then subtly propagated Cultural Marxism throughout the Western Civilization. Their goal was to gradually annihilate and radically transform its traditions, faiths, and values then supplant them with cultural Marxist ideology and ultimately a totalitarian state.

The goal would be achieved through a lengthy, peaceful, indefensible cultural revolution steeped in stealth and deception with its arcane methodology of psychological conditioning known only to the original Cultural Marxists.

The Oppressors and the Oppressed: The founders of Cultural Marxism viewed society as being divided into two classes: the privileged or dominant oppressors, typically White males; the subordinate marginalized groups comprised of women, minorities, economically oppressed, and homosexuals. They knew that power was traditionally vested in the dominant group to the exclusion of the subordinate group who were considered as oppressed victims of society. Catalyzing the correlation of power to the subordinate groups was the key strategic component in achieving their ultimate goal.

They posited that the subordinate groups lacked a consciousness of their own oppression and were influenced to internalize the value systems and worldviews of the privileged groups. As a result the groups’ members possessed a false consciousness whereby they readily accepted the following: 

– Conventional assumptions and values of the dominant groups as being legitimate and absolute
– Their own marginalized oppression

The Cultural Marxists considered this as being a false consciousness of repression that could only be transformed by delegitimizing the values of the dominant groups. This would enable the subordinate groups to change by converting their structure of repression into a transformation of consciousness. That conversion would lead to power being transferred from the dominant groups to them and ultimately result in a cultural revolution wherein all traditional Western culture would be rejected on a moral and an intellectual basis.

Shifting Power Through Political Correctness: The mechanism Cultural Marxists developed for facilitating such a complex massive transfer of power was PC. Although the term is widely used today very few people know exactly what it is: PC is a devious Cultural Marxist psychological command and control-conditioning concept using fear and intimidation to force mass-compliance with uniformity in the desired thought, speech, and behavior relative to a particular group or its cause.

Cultural Marxists cleverly disguised and propagated PC as a way of shifting power to the subordinate oppressed victims groups from their dominant oppressors. In order to catalyze such a shift the dominant party was relentlessly criticized and demonized as being insensitive to and depriving the oppressed victims of certain moral absolutes that included tolerance, inclusion, social justice, and diversity. The constant demonization would ultimately cause the desired power shift by forcing the non-compliant privileged offender to capitulate, the truth notwithstanding. This shift enabled the oppressed victims to become dominant and put them in a position to begin rejecting traditional culture and values relative to their cause.

Propagating Political Correctness: Cultural Marxists have always advanced their goal of destroying Western culture and values with extreme stealth. Accordingly, they are never directly involved in the process of propagating the ideology nor is it ever referred to as Cultural Marxism. Rather, innocuous euphemisms such as PC, progressive, and multiculturalists are commonly used to mask the ideology.

For example, unsuspecting pseudo-idealists calling themselves Progressives and Multiculturalists evangelize political correctness. They advocate for causes on behalf of self-proclaimed oppressed or offended societal victims under the guise of political correctness. However, they are generally unaware of its roots and intent, or that they are unwittingly diffusing Cultural Marxism into the fabric of American culture. In addition to this naiveté, the evangelists are totally indifferent towards the truth or legality of the matter they are advocating.

Useful Idiots: Cultural Marxists have never and will never be concerned with the means and people used to achieve their goal to transform and destroy the fundamental underpinnings of Western civilization’s culture, values, and traditions. Any perceived concern is pure subterfuge used exclusively for the purpose of masking the true intent of political correctness. In fact, those involved with the means are considered as disposable useful idiots.

Obama’s Marketing Strategy: The foregoing should make Obama’s marketing strategy crystal clear: he’s following the founding Cultural Marxist’s playbook for destroying the culture, traditions, and values of Western civilization. Obama is using political correctness as they did to shift power from the dominant group to the subordinate group and reject cultural traditions as a critical component in their strategy to destroy Western civilization. The only difference being that Obama is focused on destroying America’s culture, traditions, and values.

From the inception of his presidency Obama began using the office to shift power from the group he has historically considered as being dominant in America to the group he has always considered subordinate. For purposes hereof, that dominant group was comprised of White males; the subordinate group consisted of minorities and economically oppressed. While there is only a paucity of information available on Obama’s background, by his choice, it clearly indicates that he considered White males as colonialists and detested them.

Political Correctness Drives Illegal Immigration: Obama knows very well that PC dominates and affects every aspect of life in America today. It’s the perfect catalyst for shifting power to the people he’s encouraging to enter America illegally on an “all welcome no questions asked” basis. Concurrently it’s also perfect for justifying and marketing the massive, expensive, and chaotic illegal immigration for which he is solely responsible. 

Specifically, the astute use of PC is enabling Obama to justify and sell his illegal immigration by initiating the following sequence of events:

– Obama is extolled as a great humanitarian for initiating illegal immigration to help needy children
– The illegals are portrayed as a subordinate oppressed group of innocent victims in their respective countries who desperately need opportunities in America to attain better lives
– America’s greatness and benevolent obligation to enhance the quality of life for all illegal aliens, particularly children, are stressed ad-nauseam
– Illegals are touted as providing America with more diversity, inclusion, and tolerance
– The purported plight of the illegals has become the cause du jour and rallying cry for notable PC proponents, primarily  in Obama’s administration, Congress, and the MSM, who have become its advocates
– PC proponents vigorously advocate the cause and seek to force mass behavioral compliance in accepting illegal immigration
– Many opponents, typically conservative White males, have capitulated under relentless intimidation and fear of being demonized as racist
– Every intentional violation of the Constitution and criminal laws committed by Obama are totally ignored

The result has been a shift in power in favor of the illegal aliens and a rejection of traditional norms. Specifically, the laws governing a non-citizen’s entry into and their stay in America are now irrelevant and have been rejected. Illegals are rapidly becoming America’s sacred cows whose purported cause is gaining momentum daily with the help of Congress and the MSM. In addition to amnesty, for the most part they are receiving the following benefits thanks to Obama’s largess, i.e., the U.S. taxpayer:

– Health care
– Housing
– Food 
– Welfare
– Education
– Legal representation

In politically correct terms, illegals are the subordinate group who are a priori right and anyone opposing their illegal unconditional entry into America is from the dominant group and a priori wrong.

As an aside, PC is an extremely effective weapon that has recently catalyzed the following significant shifts in power:

- Gay marriage has been widely recognized and accepted
– Gay professional and amateur athletes who have “come out” are exalted as heroes, 
  regardless of talent and performance
– Logos and names of professional and amateur athletic teams that are considered offensive have been changed or are under attack
– Verbiage deemed offensive is changed to fit a desired meaning, the truth notwithstanding
– Orientation at most major colleges for White students includes mandatory admission and cleansing oneself of White guilt

In each instance Congress and the MSM were the principal advocates for the purported oppressed subordinate groups while White males generally comprised the dominant oppressors, and as usual did not fare too well. Most importantly, in each instance power was shifted from the dominant to the subordinate groups signifying a rejection of traditionally accepted norms.

Obama’s Supporters: In my opinion Obama is not at all concerned with the subordinate oppressed illegal aliens, people advocating for their purported cause, or anyone else supporting them, particularly Congress. His perceived concern is a ruse to encourage commitment, enthusiasm, and continuing support for illegal immigration. In the final analysis they are nothing more than his unsuspecting useful idiots and easily disposable when no longer needed. Their sole value to Obama is in helping him achieve his goal of destroying American culture, values, and traditions to pave the way for implementing a different ideology.

Obama’s Next Act: I believe the virtual elimination of Southwestern borders and allowing every alien illegally entering America from the south free passage without question portends incredible devastation ahead. Obama’s blueprint for massive illegal immigration is being successfully executed and will be replicated on a grand scale throughout America. Among other consequences it will destroy our culture, morale, greatness and sovereignty.

I also know that Obama is a malignant cancer growing on America and his illegal immigration is another toxin released to inflict maximum damage on our country. His plan to destroy American culture is accelerating with more executive orders and illegal acts set for implementation, particularly since there are no significant deterrents from a worthless, complicit Congress. To the contrary, the enthusiastic acceptance and support for Obama’s continuing illegal acts from them and the MSM serve as encouragement to continue his wanton unbridled behavior.

Hamas-Tip of the Muslim Brotherhood Spear

As Israeli forces continue advance into Gaza to combat Hamas- with a particular focus on combating the infiltration tunnels used by Hamas to conduct raids targeting Israeli civilians, it’s worth raising the question, why is it that Hamas, an isolated terrorist organization, feels comfortable repeatedly going head to head with the most powerful regional military in the Middle East?

They have state sponsors, such as Iran, Turkey and Qatar, who provide financing, true, but ultimately, Hamas is comfortable operating because they know that behind them stands the entire Global Muslim Brotherhood movement.

This has never been a secret. Hamas’ founding charter (Article 2:) states:

the Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the wings of the Muslim Brothers in Palestine. The Muslim Brotherhood Movement is a world organization, the largest Islamic Movement in the modern era.

Nor has this changed. During the Muslim Brotherhood’s rule…
