In early September, the COS Project began searching the country for citizens who recognized the brokenness of D.C. and were ready to be a part of the solution. Since the release of its Volunteer Leadership Application, the Grassroots Team has reviewed hundreds of names. Each application highlights a common desire to serve the nation and defend its freedoms for future generations.
We are excited to announce that twenty-six states now have active leadership in place.
One recently-appointed leader explained, “I don’t want to take the chance of sitting aside thinking that perhaps someone else will jump in and do it – and then not have it happen. So I am putting myself out there and am offering my time and my talents to help get this going.” Every day, citizens, no longer willing to sit on the sidelines, stand up and take tangible steps to return rightful power back to the states.
The Obama Administration (Cartel) has looked for every loophole it can find to get around the United States Constitution. According to the following report, they have found the ultimate way. This is more than scary. We have to watch this closely, do the Spiritual Warfare necessary, and speak up to our representatives. We cannot let this become the norm.
Ted Cruz criticizes DOJ for arguing international treaty can trump the Constitution
Justice Department attorneys are advancing an argument at the Supreme Court that could allow the government to invoke international treaties as a legal basis for policies such as gun control that conflict with the U.S. Constitution, according to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
Their argument is that a law implementing an international treaty signed by the U.S. allows the federal government to prosecute a criminal case that would normally be handled by state or local authorities.
That is a dangerous argument, according to Cruz.
“The Constitution created a limited federal government with only specific enumerated powers,” Cruz told the Washington Examiner prior to giving a speech on the issue today at the Heritage Foundation.
“The Supreme Court should not interpret the treaty power in a manner that undermines this bedrock protection of individual liberty,” Cruz said.
In his speech, Cruz said the Justice Department is arguing “an absurd proposition” that “could be used as a backdoor way to undermine” Second Amendment rights, among other things.
The underlying case, Bond v. United States, involves a woman charged with violating the international ban on chemical weapons because she used toxic chemicals to harass a former friend who had an affair with her husband.
Under the Constitution, such an offense would be handled at the state level. In Bond’s case, the federal government prosecuted her under the Chemical Weapons Convention Implementation Act.
That law implements the Chemical Weapons Convention, the international treaty Syrian dictator Bashar Assad is accused of violating in that country’s vicious civil war.
“The problem here is precisely that Congress, rather than implementing the treaty consistent with our constitutional system of federalism, enacted a statute that, if construed to apply to petitioner’s conduct, would violate basic structural guarantees and exceed Congress’s enumerated powers,” according to Bond’s lawyers.
The Judicial Crisis Network’s Carrie Severino said the Bond case could have ramifications for many other issues.
“If the administration is right, the treaty power could become a backdoor way for the federal government to do everything from abolishing the death penalty nationwide, to outlawing homeschooling, to dramatically curtailing the states’ rights to regulate abortion,” she told the Washington Examiner.
The Judicial Crisis Network is a conservative legal activist group.

In most every gangster movie there is a scene that demonstrates to the viewer the far-reaching power of the criminal group that makes up the antagonist in the movie. Perhaps it’s the Godfather commanding the police chief how to handle certain problems that the bad guys are facing. Or maybe it’s the scene where foot soldiers in a gang destroy the unassuming store of a poor neighborhood family. Both scenes are intended to demonstrate to you the viewer — and to the protagonist in the film — that the bad guy is very powerful and likely … unbeatable.
You’ve seen the movies. Today, you don’t need a movie to watch this kitschy story line play out; you simply need to observe the Obama White House in action. Or should I say the Obama cartel? The Obama family? The Obama gang?
“The White House is exerting massive pressure on the industry, including the trade associations to keep quiet.” “Sources telling us they feared White House retribution.”
The latest proof that the Obama administration believes itself to be the all-mighty arbiter of what is good and right is their reported response to insurers who are willing to tell reporters what is going on with Obamacare. The Obama administration is telling insurance companies to keep their mouths closed, and if any quotes or messages are leaked to the media, they draw immediate attention from the White House.
In essence, the Obama administration is using all of the coercive force they can bring to bear to threaten the insurance companies into silence. They are not using their influence for the good of Americans either–they are simply bullying the insurance companies in an effort to save face. The truth is that the media is trying to figure out why so many people are being dumped by their insurance companies and the answer is incredibly embarrassing to the White House.
“…Clarifications were made to the Affordable Care Act after the law was passed and those clarifications are forcing the insurance industry to drop insurance plans that do not meet Obamacare requirements. There’s a lot of coverage now required in these plans that was not part of many people’s private healthcare plans. Those are the people, Anderson, who are being dropped. And despite all the rhetoric from the President you simply cannot keep your current healthcare plan if it does not meet these requirements… the insurance industry is embarrassed about canceling the plans but… the administration was warned about this very scenario and ignored the advice.”
Why would the insurance companies not fight back? Why are they cowering in fear when faced with the corrupt bullies on Capitol Hill? What could the Obama gang have on them that could keep them from speaking truth to power and letting America know what is going on?
“Executives are willing to listen to the White House because right now it is the Federal government that’s the biggest customer for these insurance companies. Government backed plans accounted for about 48% of healthcare policies last year Anderson (Cooper), a number that is expected to grow this year and years to come… insurance companies are in a position to just be quiet for fear of offending their biggest source of income.”
Don’t buy the Democrat spin when they say the insurance industry just needs more government oversight or involvement. The government is plenty involved – in fact, that’s the problem. The government is in bed with the insurance companies which is why our costs keep rising, even now under Obamacare. Crony capitalism always leads to more profits for the government backed company and less choice, efficiency, quality and satisfaction for the consumer. It is the corruption of the free market that has allowed the Obama Cartel to take over our healthcare and thoroughly ruin what was once a fine system.
The Obama gang is scared. First they ran the economy into the ground and now they are destroying a healthcare system that just needed some tweaking. It’s the same story we’ve seen play out time and again. The IRS scandal, Benghazi, the NSA … plan to hear a lot more news about the Democrats and the White House using their intimidation tactics to keep people quiet.

When we have sufficiently removed God from our culture and diminished the value of honesty as a wellspring of our morals, then we become nothing more than sociopathic tribes of cretins, and our courtrooms nothing more than ineffectual bonfires for us to dance around. And that, is the beginning of the end.
Anyone who has studied history finds it painfully obvious that history is repeating itself. It has always been traditions and values, and a powerful presence of justice, swift and sure, that have maintained the continuity of the great cultures before us. In the same breath, it has most always been the deterioration of values, traditions, and justice that has eroded the power base of those cultures.
Rome is always the example that comes to mind, and no society in modern history parallels Rome more than the United States of America – the deterioration of faith, the promulgation and encouragement of alternate sexuality, the collapse of political, judicial and religious tenants, the tapestry of a nation deteriorating into a mosaic of autonomous tribes, and the unchecked and continuous invasion of the country’s borders. (Rome at least resisted its invaders – we, on the other hand, are welcoming them).
Our way of life is now continually threatened from the outside by an loose amalgam of angry sects coalescing around a bitter, vengeful religion, but it is the deterioration of our society from within that will provide our inexorable collapse into a third world country. We’ve become a nation of apologists and excuse-makers, stumbling along while embracing this new technicolored philosophy of diversity above common sense, and reward without effort – that everyone should have the same amount of everything regardless of whether or not they’ve earned it. These same people are the ones who tell us the foundering indigenous cultures within our borders are simply a product of insufficient attention, and the ones climbing over the fences of our borders deserve everything we have the moment their feet touch the ground. They are the same myopic folks who believe every heinous criminal is a product of a childhood without Sugar Pops, and every African American deserves $50,000 in reparations money. It’s poignant naiveté bordering on a “wrestling is real and the moon landing was faked” mindset, and it’s corroding the very foundations of intelligence and common sense in this nation – and yet it grows, and it is beyond me to explain that.
It is the nature of great societies to rise and fall. I know this, and I will accept the inevitability. But it’s just so incredibly distressing to me to witness this race with such pure abandonment, into the tar pits of history.

“It wasn’t an unintended consequence. It was an intended consequence,” Rubio said Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.” “This was done on purpose because they want to undermine and gut the individual marketplace.”
Rubio didn’t elaborate, but he signed on to a bill introduced Wednesday by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., that would allow people to keep current policies they like even if current rules say they can’t.
Editor’s Note: 22 Hidden Taxes and Fees Set to Hit You With Obamacare. Read the Guide to Protect Yourself.
Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh has long maintained that Obamacare is a step toward a single-payer plan that essentially would put every American on government-sponsored insurance.
“I’m fully convinced that the chaos that’s happening now could well be intentional to speed it up,” Limbaugh said on his radio show Tuesday.
Limbaugh repeatedly has played clips of President Barack Obama saying in 2003 and 2007 that he wants to eventually move toward a single-payer system.
In 2007, Obama told an AFL-CIO Civil, Human and Women’s Rights Conference:
“My commitment is to make sure that we’ve got universal healthcare for all Americans by the end of my first term as president. I would hope that we set up a system that allows those who can go through their employer to access a federal system or a state pool of some sort, but I don’t think we’re going to be able to eliminate employer coverage immediately. There’s going to be potentially some transition process. I can envision a decade out or 15 years out or 20 years out.”

The subtlest of subterfuge is being practiced at all times, everywhere, by those of the Alinskyite Left. Although they’re malevolently delusional about what makes a society just, moral, and economically healthy, they can be as cunning as foxes and brilliantly Machiavellian in their strategy and tactics.
Primary among the items on their agenda is to continually ridicule those of us on the Right. In fact, Saul Alinsky himself, in his classic community-organizing handbook titled Rules for Radicals, taught his rule #5 as follows: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates your opponent, which then reacts to your advantage.”
I’d been marginally aware of the website known as nationalreport.net for some time, how long I’m not exactly sure, but only in recent days did I become somewhat alarmed about their content, and about the fact that suddenly an increasing number of my conservative friends on Facebook are posting/”sharing” stories from that site, as if the stories are genuine.
What is specifically alarming to me is that my friends are being duped into ridiculing themselves, and into unwittingly casting ridicule upon the entire conservative cause, by a gaggle of clever Leftists who write for National Report.
National Report pretends (somewhat successfully) to be a conservative news and opinion website proudly aligned with the Tea Party camp. Their banner masthead features pictures of Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin on either side of the large bold text, NATIONAL REPORT, with “America’s #1 Independent News Team” in smaller text underneath.
Here’s the problem: It’s one thing for unwary or unsophisticated conservatives to mistakenly think some satirical piece on The People’s Cube or The Daily Currant is real, and not the tongue-in-cheek lampooning that those sites are known for. But it’s another thing when those on our side of the aisle swallow Trojan-hoaxes that are planted within what deceptively appears to be a right-wing website, intended to discredit our movement and expose us as dense, gullible, religious-redneck simpletons when we spread the fake stories virally as if they are real, and perpetuate the usual passionate outrage among conservatives at the outrageous (but fake) content in them.
For example: A couple of weeks ago a Facebook friend shared a story from National Report with the headline Police Barge Into Classroom and Tase Multiple Children “For The Heck Of It.” My friend, and some others who commented on the post, were duped into thinking it was a real story. According to the tabs on the NR webpage, the story has been shared over 86,300 times on Facebook!
Now, we on the right are constantly on the alert for stories that sound the alarm about increasing police-state thug tactics of the tyrannical socialist Obama administration and all that, right? And there’s no shortage of real, current stories which feature such aspects. The way that article was written so deftly in the early paragraphs, with just enough plausible, articulate, and deadpan-somber detail, disturbing as the subject matter was, was enough to give the perhaps most worldly Tea Party type pause, and provoke chin-scratching concern that things really have gotten that bad.
But the writers at National Report are finely honing the art of presenting stories which push all those buttons, but which a skeptically sober and diligent person can and should spot as sham agit-prop with just a little close further reading. In the later paragraphs, the subtle giveaway “tells” of the fraud emerge, and it becomes clearer that the writer is actually very slyly mocking the right by baiting us to pounce in a paranoid, reactive way.
The method works, obviously, based on the viral traffic many of the articles get. I even found myself admiring the skillfulness of what would otherwise be mere satire if it wasn’t actually meant to be taken otherwise by those unable or unwilling to detect the actual intent of the piece: Ridiculing the Right–not for purposes of providing enjoyment and “moral support” among readers from the Left, but to get those of us on the Right to carry the virus of ridicule ourselves. It’s rather brilliant, actually.
I’m troubled by the fact that so many people re-post the bogus stories without successfully vetting them, not just because I (as we all do) want our cause to be supported by credibility, but because people like those at National Report know exactly how to get many of us to react in a way that makes us look like a bunch of hysterical, shallow crazies and idiots. They are using our own knee-jerk outrage at ridiculous phony stories to make us look ridiculous.
Other bogus stories from National Report which I’ve seen my friends fall for and post include those such as City In Michigan First To Fully Implement Sharia Law(which has almost 53 thousand Facebook shares at the time I’m writing this) and Rocker And Conservative Activist Ted Nugent Survives Assassination Attempt(93K shares). Both are skillfully written, the former so convincingly that you’d actually believe the Dearborn city council voted 4-3 to enact what is purported if you weren’t cautious enough to see through it.
I admit to some degree of ambiguity about National Report–its editor-in-chief seems frequently to really exert himself to come across as a sincere right-winger. With some probing of his previous articles, however, one comes away with the impression that the entire website is about half absurdly-veiled scam pieces, and the other half are baiting, back-handed, sardonic-to-over-the-top caricatures of hardcore conservative philosophy and people.
I also admit that, myself being a writer for a website known for pushing the envelope and blurring the boundaries between straight news reporting and the full-on rhetorical war for the culture, I and my fellow Clashers write things which are oft meant to be provocative and alarming, politically, with plenty of “English” on the ball (back in my tennis-playing days of youth, that’s what we calledspin–we called it English) and zaniness thrown in. However, we here at ClashDaily.com are up-front about our agenda, we explicitly differentiate news and opinion pieces, and we label the occasional piece of satire as such.
Unlike ClashDaily.com, NR’s graphics and overall presentation are not bold, loud, colorful, edgy, and brash–they’re comparatively toned-down more to the level you’d expect from a conventional news website. Again, I assert that this is deliberate sleight-of-HTML. At the bottom of their webpage, National Report features this mild disclaimer (italics mine):
*DISCLAIMER: The National Report is an online portal for “citizen journalists”. The views expressed by writers on this site are theirs alone and are not reflective of the fine journalistic and editorial integrity of National Report. Advice given is NOT to be construed as professional. If you are in need of professional help, please consult a professional. National Report is not intended for children under the age of 18.
Saul Alinsky’s Rule #6 happens to be: ”A good tactic is something your people enjoy. If your people aren’t having a ball doing it, there is something very wrong with the tactic.”
It seems National Report is composed of disinformation agents who are making a fortune (based on all the advertising & traffic) and having the time of their lives, mocking/caricaturing conservatives by pretending to be conservatives themselves, posting fake stories designed to dupe us.
Speak software and carry a big mouse-click; just don’t carry their ridicule (of us) for them.
Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.” So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.
Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?”
So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies. Then Congress said, “How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?”
So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One was to do the studies and one was to write the reports. Then Congress said, “How are these people going to get paid?” So they created two positions: a time keeper and a payroll officer then hired two people.
Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for all of these people?”
So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant administrative Officer, and a Legal
Then Congress said, “We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $918,000 over budget, we must cut back.” So they laid-off the night watchman.
NOW slowly, let it sink in.
Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter…Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY during the Carter administration?
Didn’t think so!
Bottom line is, we’ve spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency….the reason for which not one person who reads this can remember!
It was very simple… and at the time, everybody thought it very appropriate. The Department of Energy was instituted on 8/04/1977, TO
LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.
Hey, pretty efficient, huh???
AND NOW IT’S 2013 — 36 YEARS LATER — AND THE BUDGET FOR THIS “NECESSARY” DEPARTMENT IS AT $24.2 BILLION A YEAR. IT HAS 16,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000 CONTRACT EMPLOYEES; AND LOOK AT THE JOB IT HAS DONE!
(THIS IS WHERE YOU SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY, “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?”)
34 years ago 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports. Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports.
Ah, yes — good old Federal bureaucracy.
NOW, WE HAVE TURNED OVER THE BANKING SYSTEM, HEALTH CARE, AND THE AUTO INDUSTRY TO THE SAME GOVERNMENT?

The level of influence that Islam has achieved over the education system and the minds of young Americans is quite startling. Below is an account of how serious the ‘infection’ is…..
The American public school system is notorious for spending lots of money on each student, failing to produce well-educated kids, and along the way, coming up with lots of really bad ideas about education. One of the worst ideas is inviting Muslim indoctrination into the schools in the interest of multicultural “tolerance” and “awareness.”
Religious studies are generally unwelcome in public schools, with the exception of the study of Islam. Perhaps there are people in the education system who think that a broader understanding of Islam will make it easier to understand barbaric acts of mass murder, such as we saw on September 11, 2001. But there is another more likely goal: making all religions morally equivalent, so that no specific religion is considered superior to any other.
The word “Islam” means “submission”. All Mohammedans are commended to wage war against the unbelievers until they submit to Islam and the entire world becomes Islamic.*
The U.S. is at war with Islamic terrorists who are willing to fight to the death to destroy the American way of life. It is obvious (to most people) that homicidal maniacs and their enablers should not be teaching classes in American schools.
New York schools may close for Muslim holidays.
Schools in New York, the biggest city in the U.S., might be about to implement shutdowns on certain Muslim holy days, as both mayoral candidates running for City Hall have said they support such a move. A report in the New York Daily News says that Bill de Blasio, the Democrat, and Joe Lhota, his Republican opponent, believe both Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha should be added to the holiday calendar along with other major religious observations, including Christmas, Good Friday and Rosh Hashanah.
Tennessee high school students visit mosque, get Qur’an — not visiting church or synagogue.
The public school officials behind this reveal by their choices of visits that the real agenda here is to make these Tennessee students “accepting of the other,” because that is the whole problem of jihad terrorism, doncha know — if Americans were more accepting of Muslims and Islam, jihad terror would be a thing of the past. There are so many initiatives like this, such as the Arkansas school that planned to feature a Muslim speaker on September 11, that it is hard to escape the conclusion that they really believe this nonsense.
Students Take Field Trip to Mosque, Receive Koran.
A Tennessee high school has decided to revise its field trip policy after a group of freshmen were taken to an Islamic mosque where they were given copies of the Koran and while a student who opted out of the trip was given a worksheet that alleged Muslims treated their conquered people better than the United States treated minorities. The students were in an honors world studies class at Hendersonville High School and the field trips to the mosque as well as a Hindu temple were part of a three-week course on world religions. But some parents objected to the trips and wondered why the school would tour a mosque but not a Christian church or a Jewish synagogue.
Pledge of Allegiance skipped, Muslim poem read at Boston school on 9/11.
The principal of Concord Carlisle High School in Boston issued an apology Wednesday after a Muslim poem was recited over the intercom on the 12th anniversary of 9/11, and the Pledge of Allegiance was not. According to principal Peter Badalament, a “small number” of people were outraged at the poem, which was meant to promote “cross-cultural understanding,” Boston.com reported. Apparently, the Pledge of Allegiance was not read because of some confusion.
Bulletin board at Wichita school showing Five Pillars of Islam removed.
A bulletin board at a Wichita elementary school that illustrated the Five Pillars of Islam has been removed “because of the misunderstanding that has been promoted by … one photograph,” district officials said Monday [8/19/2013]. The bulletin board at Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet Elementary was intended to aid students’ study of major religions of the world, district spokeswoman Susan Arensman said in an e-mail. It featured five white, construction-paper columns and the words, “The Five Pillars of Islam.”
Kansas public school promotes 5 Pillars of Islam.
The display was reportedly part of a religion component being taught at Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet School, a school district spokesperson told Fox News’ Todd Starnes. “The bulletin board that originally caused the concern does represent the 5 Pillars of Islam — in a historical context of their studies,” the spokesperson said.
School Defends Textbook Calling Muhammad “God’s Messenger”.
School officials in Florida are defending a textbook that declares Muhammad as the “Messenger of God” after critics accused an Islamic education group of launching a stealth jihad in American public school classrooms. The Prentice World History textbook being used in Brevard Public Schools includes a 36-page chapter on Islam but no chapters on Christianity or Judaism.
Tucson schools to take $465,000 from Arab charity with Muslim Brotherhood ties.
Last week, the governing board of the Tucson Unified School District asked the school board to accept a $465,000 curriculum grant from the Qatar Foundation International, a global philanthropic organization with strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of the terrorist group Hamas. The grant money is intended to implement “innovative curricula and teaching materials to be used in any Arabic language classroom,” reports the Arizona Daily Independent.
Islamic Supremacist Nominated as UC Student Regent.
A UC Berkeley senior who is a venomous supporter of the jihad against Israel and member of several Islamic supremacist groups with links to jihad terror has been nominated to become the University of California student regent for the 2014-15 academic year. The student regent participates in a board that sets policies for the entire University of California system, which consists of ten campuses throughout the state. Sadia Saifuddin is expected to be confirmed as student regent by the full Board of Regents next month.
Islamizing the Public Schools.
The Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is pressuring public schools in this country to make special accommodations for Muslim students and to deny comparable accommodations for students of other faiths. For example, CAIR’s instructional material for teachers entitled “An Educator’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices” advises schools to permit Muslim students who wish to attend Friday congregational worship (known as Jum’ah) to “request a temporary release from school.”
Terrorists driven by low self-esteem, Florida high schoolers told.
It’s low self-esteem and the need for a “sense of belonging” that drives terrorists to join groups that kill in the name of religion, according to an online lesson plan for Florida high school students. The world history course on “Invisible Warfare” — offered by the Florida Virtual School, the nation’s first statewide Internet-based public high school — begins by asking students “what comes to mind” when considering the concept of fundamentalism and then prompts them to think of the term in a religious context. It later defines terrorism as the act of using fear or violence to accomplish certain political or religious goals.
Muslims in Maryland petition schools to close on Eid, like on Christmas, Yom Kippur.
Schools are usually closed on Easter Monday and Rosh Hashanah — why not Eid al-Fitr? That’s the question Mimi Hassanein, a resident of Brinkow, Md., asks herself every time the Eids fall on a school day. The two most important Islamic holidays — Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha — are traditionally spent praying and feasting with family and friends. But Hassanein says that every year, her grandchildren and other Muslim youth in her school district are forced to choose between their religion and their grades.
Second university sounds alarm over segregation at Muslim student events.
Leicester University voiced concern after photographs emerged showing hand-written signs directing male and female students to sit in separate sections at a public talk on the existence of God organised by the university’s Islamic Society.
How Muslim proselytizing creeps into public schools.
The Loudoun County School Board is reaching the denouement of a multiyear deliberation about an application for a charter school that has strong ties to Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish Islamist. His followers have already started some 135 American charter schools. Their focus is to promote an increasingly Shariah-dominated Turkey. Incredibly, the school board’s members are studiously avoiding any acknowledgment or discussion of the role of Fethullah Gulen and his movement in the charter school.
Texas Lawmakers Blast ‘Anti-American’, ‘Anti-Christian’ Curriculum.
Texas lawmakers are putting educators on the hot seat after public school curriculum surfaced that promoted Islam and socialism while deconstructing American values and patriotism. School children were exposed to lessons that labeled the Boston Tea Party an act of terrorism. They were also instructed to create flags for socialist and communist countries. And they were also given in-depth lessons in the Islamic faith that included classroom readings from the Koran.

This is how the adherents to Basic Islam 101 have to believe.
US based Imam, Yasir Qadhi preaches openly that non muslims lives are forfeit and their property is legal for muslims to take in jihad, (and this would include women as sex slaves) yet no charges are brought against him.
Tennessee imam: Jews and Christians filthy, their lives and property can be taken in jihad by the Muslims
Note also his words about jihad, quoting Muhammad: “I have been commanded to fight the people until they testify la illaha illa Allah [there is no god but Allah].”

Before you read this List of Facts proving that Obama wants to rid the United States/world of Christianity, let’s remember this quote at the United Nations General Assembly in September 2012 when Obama said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
Wallbuilders proves Obama is anti-Catholic, anti-Protestant, and anti-religious Jews, so, in summary – anti-Biblical. “And then when his hostility toward Biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-Biblical actions.”
Here are a few facts taken from a very long list at Wallbuilders of Obama’s anti-Biblical words and actions:
1) Acts of hostility toward people of Biblical faith:
2) Acts of hostility from the Obama-led military toward people of Biblical faith:
3) Acts of hostility toward Biblical values:
4) Acts of preferentialism for Islam:
Here’s a partial list from Frontpage Magazine:
1) The O administration “scrubbed all federal law enforcement training materials of such words or phrases as ‘jihadists’ or ‘Islamic terrorists,’ since the use of such terms could be viewed by Muslims as evidence of Islamophobia.”
2) The O administration is targeting Christians in the military; Fox News report Oct. 23, 2013: “Soldiers attending a pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood say they were told that evangelical Christians and members of the Tea Party were a threat to the nation and that any soldier donating to those groups would be subjected to punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.”
Remember, Fort Hood is where the Muslim soldier Nidal Hasan, shouted “Allahu Akhbar” as he murdered his unarmed fellow soldiers.
Yet, during the pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood, barely a word was said about Islamic extremism. As one soldier put it, “Our community is still healing from the act of terrorism brought on by Nidal Hasan – who really is a terrorist. This is a slap in the face. The military is supposed to defend freedom and to classify the vast majority of the military that claim to be Christian as terrorists is sick.”
3) An Army Reserve instructor in PA was reported as saying Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism were examples of religious extremism, equating followers with the KKK, al Qaeda and Hamas. His training materials also listed “Islamophobia” as a form of religious extremism.
4) The U.S. military ordered soldiers to remove a cross and a steeple from atop a chapel and to board up cross-shaped windows at a remote American forward operating base in Afghanistan.” They were told the Christian symbols “might offend the Afghan Muslims” whom our soldiers are risking their lives to defend.
5) A Defense Department training document entitled “Extremism” is tied to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) which has an anti-Christian, anti-Tea Party bias. It has labeled the American Family Association and the Traditional Values Coalition as “domestic hate groups”.
6) Atheist activist Mikey Weinstein just got the Air Force Academy to relent and make “So help me God” to be optional in the reciting of their honor code. However, Weinstein responded, “What does it mean, ‘optional’? The best thing is to eliminate it.”
7) “The Obama administration bends over backwards to avoid hurting the sensibilities of Muslims, even referring to Hasan’s jihadist attack at Fort Hood as merely “workplace violence.” But traditional Christians are a subject of mockery and disrespect by this administration.”
You see where this is leading. Our military is being trained to attack U.S. citizens, Christians and conservatives. Dissidents. To seize guns. To seize land. This is communism all over again, but under a new label – “Progressive.”

California residents Cindy Vinson and Tom Waschura are proud to say they voted for President Obama in 2008 and 2012. They’ve also been proud advocates for his prized health care law. But after opening their health insurance bills last month, they’re both “floored.”
“I was laughing at Boehner—until the mail came today,” Waschura told San Jose Mercury News, referencing House Speaker John Boehner during the heat of the defund Obamacaredebate on Capitol Hill in late September.
Both Vinson and Waschura’s health insurance plans are being replaced to meet the requirements of Obamacare. Vinson will pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy, while Waschura’s plan for his family of four will increase by $10,000.
>>> How Will You Fare in the Obamacare Exchanges?
“I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so [mad] about this,” Waschura said. “When you take $10,000 out of my family’s pocket each year, that’s otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy.”
Now that health insurance companies are releasing new costs, people like Vinson, a 60-year-old retired teacher, are realizing their premiums will make up the difference for other Americans.
“Of course, I want people to have health care,” Vinson told San Jose Mercury News. “I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.”
No matter who you supported at the ballot box, the harmful effects of Obamacare will hit everyone. Help us spread the word about this unaffordable law and share the graphics above.
Liberals are heavily favored in this epic struggle for several reasons. First, it is always easier to convince people to sit back and let the government take care of them than it is to convince them to take personal responsibility for the quality of their lives. Another reason liberals are favored in this contest is that people are hardwired to envy others who appear better off economically—even when their better standard of living is the result of their entrepreneurial spirit and positive work ethic. Yet another reason that liberals have the edge is that people are hardwired to blame others for their misfortunes as opposed to blaming themselves. These are just a few of the reasons the playing field tilts in favor of liberals, there are many more. However, for the sake of brevity I will skip directly to the bottom-line reason: liberals control the institutions that mold the values and worldviews of America’s children.
America’s public schools have become incubators for producing successive generations of liberals. Nothing about public education supports the development of a conservative worldview. Here is what that stalwart in the faith, J. Gresham Machen, had to say about this dilemma: “Place the lives of children in their formative years, despite the convictions of their parents, under the intimate control of experts appointed by the state, force them to attend schools where the higher aspirations of humanity are crushed out…and it is difficult to see how even the remnants of liberty can subsist.”
Public school students spend more than 30 hours per week for 12 years being indoctrinated by so-called “experts appointed by the state” against everything conservative parents stand for (i.e. limited government, low taxation, free-market economics, individual liberty, personal responsibility, constitutional sovereignty, and traditional American values). Frankly, if this situation is allowed to persist not only will conservatives lose the battle for the hearts and minds of Americans, they will deserve to lose.
As conservatives, we seem to think the battle is about electing the next President of the United States. But battles for the hearts and minds of the people are fought in the trenches at the local level, not in the White House or the halls of Congress. They are fought around the dinner table of individual American families. They are fought in how parents raise their children and what they teach them about right and wrong and responsible principles of living. But conservative parents are losing the battle for the hearts and minds of their children because at least six hours a day, five days a week, nine months out of the year they turn them over to liberal teachers and administrators who persistently undo any good parents are able to do in the comparatively little time they spend with their children.
Here is an undeniable fact: You cannot expect your children to internalize and accept your worldview when you allow them to be raised by teachers who either reject your values or compliantly go along to get along in a system that rejects your values. Christian schools, home-schools, and charter schools help somewhat in this situation, but collectively these alternatives to the public schools are the equivalent of a flea on an elephant. Most children of conservative parents in America attend public schools. This being the case, it is time for conservatives to start fighting at the grassroots level and do the hard work of transforming America’s public schools into institutions of learning rather than publicly-funded indoctrination centers that are better at producing compliant automatons with entitlement mentalities than critical-thinking, self-reliant, productive citizens.

The above quote perfectly encapsulates the divide within the Republican Party. The rift within the Party is based on many things, but when boiled down, it is all about philosophy. For the longest time, the philosophy of the Republican Party has been about winning at all costs. This has caused permanent blindness which has led to endless mediocre candidates. In the Party’s pursuit of the “perfect” candidate, they have eschewed their own values in favor of someone they hope will be “electable,” and adored by moderates.
The problem with the desire to be liked is that it clouds one’s judgment. Trying to cover every base is impossible, and in their extraordinary need to be liked by all, Republicans have become hated by all. The tides have changed a bit with the appearance of Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and the rest of the cast of Real Conservatives of Washington DC. Their rise has dramatically shifted the demographics of the Republican Party, increasing the rift between the establishment and the true Conservatives.
According to Breitbart:
“Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press, former Pennsylvania Senator and 2012 presidential candidate Rick Santorum bashed Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), saying that Cruz’s crusade against Obamacare had been counterproductive. ‘I would say in the end, he did more harm. I think it was not his objective.’”
This column is not designed to bash Santorum, but to highlight the philosophical difference between establishment and Conservative. Santorum went on to say that Ted Cruz is a good guy, but that his strategy was misguided. In those words lies a massive philosophical statement. Santorum belongs to the establishment, a group of politicians who are unwilling to make waves in order to incite change. He will gladly make a statement about abortion, making waves around himself, but he is not out to change Washington in any real sense.
This is why we need to oust establishment Republicans. It’s not necessarily because they are malevolent—though some are (McCain)—but because they simply don’t understand what’s going on. No matter the situation, establishment Republicans just aren’t useful anymore.

Trick or treat!! The word, according to Neil Cavuto, is that the gazillions of food stamp recipients across the land are to have their “benefits” reduced as of November 1st, and that the Department of Homeland Security is gearing up for widespread riots.
Such wonders abound in our neo-socialist dystopia of “hope & change.” For the past several years, the Obama administration has aggressively sought to solidify and expand the democrat party’s grip on power by encouraging as many people as they possibly can to sign up for food stamps and other government programs, to make dependency on government a way of life for more and more generations of future voters. For most readers, this is by now an elementary fact of political life.
Problem is, the free-lunch tree is being stripped of goodies very quickly…
Remember that story from about a month ago, where the socialist regime in Venezuela was stationing armed troops inside toilet paper factories, in order to enforce production and distribution quotas, due to severe shortages resulting from price controls? Seems that centrally-planned economies can never satisfy human demands for goods and services, no matter how many times central planning is tried; nor does it matter who is doing the planning.
Government’s proper role is not to feed & take care of people, nor could it do so adequately even if that was its job. Instead, government should promote the general welfare by helping to create conditions which allow people to prosper in freedom–chiefly, by protecting individual rights, especially property rights.
To repeat a quote often attributed to our country’s first president, George Washington(a man who knew a little something about the proper role of limited government–he refused the suggestion by some that he be crowned king of the new nation of America, and rebuked those who suggested it): “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence–it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.”
Today, we are “evolving” into more and more of a democracy, rather than the republic once cherished by those who fought so long and hard for liberty. Increasingly, the masses of people can simply vote themselves less personal responsibility, and more of the property produced by others, by electing democrats to use the force of government to redistribute goods. How much longer do you suppose before stuff here is inadequately produced at gunpoint, like in Venezuela?
Compare such a category of chattel slave of yesteryear with the taxpayer of today–is there really that much difference?
The more skilled and productive the taxpayer, the more of his or her product that the voting democrat masters seize, leaving him or her (if the taxpaying slave happens to be very resourceful) enough to enjoy a tidy or even splendiferous separate existence, yes, but the arrangement really is no different in essential character. We also have some very wealthy and highly skilled slaves today, owned by a multitude of democrat voters helping themselves to upwards of half of what the slaves produce.
So all of this can just continue on indefinitely, right? No?
You mean to tell me the takers are vastly out-breeding and out-voting the makers? You’re saying the makers are becoming disillusioned and discouraged?
Yes indeedy, an Investor’s Business Daily headline from yesterday reads: “Welfare, Not Full-Time Work, Is Now America’s No. 1 Occupation.”

It is sad that we had to even put pressure on them to get this victory.
Check it out:
Last week America was stunned to discover pre-deployment briefings at Ft. Hood instructing soldiers that Evangelical Christians and Tea Party members posed a threat to America.
Thanks to the writing of Todd Starnes at FoxNews.com, and in a smaller measure to my article, Army names Christians and Tea Party as terror threat, patriots across the nation awoke and let their voices be heard in a mighty way: such briefings were ludicrous and wholly unacceptable.
Adding to the incredulous content of the briefings was the history of the venue. In my May 28 article I wrote:
On November 5, 2009, Hasan massacred 13 and wounded more than 32 U.S. soldiers at Fort Hood while screaming “Allahu Akbar,” or “Allah is greatest.”
much for the left’s “consenting adults” rhetoric on sex. Forever the consummate conservationists, our self-described “progressive” friends at the ACLU, MSNBC and elsewhere have been ramping-up efforts to downsize from “consenting adults” to merely “consenting” – a far less cumbersome qualifier in the noble struggle for unrestrained sexual license.
Ever hear of Kaitlyn Hunt? Over the past year or so this poor, misunderstood lesbian woman’s “anti-gay persecution” has become a cause célèbre among “gay rights” activists and other left-wing purveyors of perversion.
Despite mass rallies and online petitions signed by hundreds-of-thousands of the uber-”tolerant,” the clearly “homophobic” Florida criminal justice system has, nonetheless, convicted Ms. Hunt of multiple felonies for sexually assaulting – repeatedly – a 14-year-old girl.
Oh, sure, her minor victim allegedly “consented” to what the “Free Kate” crowd has portrayed as a harmless tryst – but, of course, by law children below the age of consent cannot consent to sex with adults. Period.
Still, the “progressive” establishment evidently felt that, for whatever reason, this was their hill to die on – this was the case that might help them realize the historical “gay rights” goal of rolling-back most, if not all, age of consent laws – statutes designed to protect children from adult sexual predators like, well, Kate.
Veteran journalist Robert Stacy McCain has covered the Hunt case extensively. In a recent piece for the American Spectator headlined “Kaitlyn Hunt is guilty and, yes, there is a movement to ‘normalize pedophilia,’” McCain writes: “Kaitlyn Hunt is a criminal. We can state that as a Neutral Objective Fact, now that the 19-year-old former cheerleader has pleaded ‘no contest’ to multiple felonies related to her sexual affair with a minor. What remains is the question of what her plea in a Florida courtroom Thursday means for what Rush Limbaugh has called the movement to ‘normalize pedophilia.”‘
Here’s the answer: There is no question. There is categorically a movement to normalize pedophilia. I’ve witnessed it firsthand and, despite “progressive” protestations to the contrary, the “pedophile rights” movement is inexorably linked to the so-called “gay rights” movement.
Two years ago I – along with the venerable child advocate Dr. Judith Reisman – attended a Maryland conference hosted by the pedophile group B4U-ACT. Around 50 individuals were in attendance, including a number of admitted pedophiles (or “minor-attracted persons,” as they euphemistically prefer).
Also present were a few self-described “gay activists” and several supportive mental-health professionals. World renowned “sexologist” Dr. Fred Berlin of Johns Hopkins University gave the keynote address, opening with: “I want to completely support the goal of B4U-ACT.”
Here are some highlights from the conference:
You may think that such abject evil simply represents the fringe of today’s sexual “progressivism.” It doesn’t. It represents the honest.
Consider, for instance, that during Obama’s first term, the official website for the Department of Health and Human Services linked to “parenting tips” that referenced children as “sexual beings” and suggested that they should experiment with homosexuality and masturbation.
You may also recall that Mr. Obama appointed Kevin Jennings, founder of the “Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network,” or GLSEN, to the post of “safe schools czar.” The position is now defunct, ostensibly due to national outrage over Jennings’ appointment.
In keeping with the thinly veiled goals of B4U-ACT, GLSEN seems to be “running interference” for pedophiles, having tacitly advocated adult-child sex through its “recommended reading list” for kids.
This of no surprise when you consider that one of Jennings’ ideological heroes was Harry Hay, the “founding father” of homosexual activism. “One of the people that’s always inspired me is Harry Hay,” he has said glowingly.
Was Harry Hay fringe? No, not among “gay” activists. He’s an icon. Again, he was just honest. In 1983, while addressing the pedophile North American Man/Boy Love Association, or NAM/BLA, Hay said the following:
“It seems to me that in the gay community the people who should be running interference for NAM/BLA are the parents and friends of gays. Because if the parents and friends of gays are truly friends of gays, they would know from their gay kids that the relationship with an older man is precisely what 13-, 14-, and 15-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world. And they would be welcoming this, and welcoming the opportunity for young gay kids to have the kind of experience that they would need.”
If he were alive today, Harry Hay would likely have led the movement to “free Kate.”
And by “free Kate,” he would have meant – and they actually mean – “free us.”
And by “free us,” of course, what they really mean is “free children.”

The accusations arose over a “ramp ceremony” held at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan as flag-draped caskets of the dead soldiers were loaded onto a plane for transport back to the United States. The shocking words of the Muslim cleric, revealed in later translations, were spoken at a memorial service meant to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. They were yet another example of the abject disrespect of Christians and Christianity endemic to the Muslim world.
Here at home, Christianity and Christian religious practices are also under attack, but in more subtle ways and under a misinterpretation of the principle of freedom of religion. In the United States, that legal doctrine is cited to marginalize Christian prayer and traditions, while, at the same time, dramatically accommodating and even expanding Muslim religious practices. Myriad examples exist.
During the recent government shutdown, Catholic priests were warned that they could be arrested for celebrating Mass, even if performed on a voluntary basis. Under Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel’s direction and determination was that priests do not “contribute to the morale” and “well-being” of military personnel.” Thus, offering of the sacraments was prohibited and the Eucharist placed under lock and key. Curiously, no mention was made of curtailing religious freedom for Muslim service members or furloughing imams.
This prohibition against Christian religious practice is not limited to the military. Police throughout the land also frequently come down hard against Christians. In 2010, a group of students from the Arizona-based Wickenburg Christian Academy were ordered by a police officer to cease their quiet prayers on the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. The officer cited a statute that prohibits demonstrations on the steps, but no official policy bars prayer at that location.
In June of 2010, David Wood and two other Christian missionaries were arrested by Dearborn, Michigan, police at the annual Arab festival for discussing Christianity on a public sidewalk outside the event. The men, who have since been acquitted, were charged with disturbing the peace and spent the night in jail.
Contrast these incidents with a massive public display of praying Muslims during the annual Muslim Day Parade in New York City. Muslims, who are protected each year during the event by Muslim NYPD officers, are free to engage in mass prayer, even prostrating themselves on the streets of midtown Manhattan. Vehicular traffic halts and participants freely harass non-Muslims who attempt to pass through the area on foot.
Meanwhile, the ACLU has been at the forefront of an extensive effort to ban Christian prayer from public schools under the “separation of church and state” provision of the First Amendment. This is a signature issue for the “civil rights” organization. However, for Muslim prayers, the organization reverses its interpretation and fights for student rights to engage in prayer.
For example, when Carver Elementary School in San Diego instituted a 15-minute prayer period during class time for Muslim students in 2004, the ACLU endorsed the practice. ACLU spokesman Kevin Keenan said the group supported Muslim prayer under the First Amendment’s prohibition against impeding religion. In this way, the ACLU was “honoring constitutional standards for freedom of religion.”
Meanwhile, in Michigan, Dearborn public schools have a policy of accommodating Muslim prayers at school during school hours, as well as ignoring unexcused absences for Muslims to leave school early for Friday prayers. Yet, in 2009, after a Muslim organization complained about permission slips given to Christian students to attend off-site after-school Bible study, issuance of the slips was discontinued.
In addition to police, the ACLU, and schools, U.S. courts have also sided with the Islamic religion and against Christianity. In 2001, the Byron Union School District in Byron, California instituted a three-week unit on Islam for 7th-graders. Students took Muslim names, recited Islamic prayers, and celebrated Ramadan. When parents sued the school on the grounds that the course was “officially endorsing a religion,” the U.S. Supreme Court rejected their appeal, leaving intact an earlier ruling by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that deemed that the unit did not violate the Constitution and had an “instructional purpose.”
In 2009, the same court of appeals upheld a ban by Henry Jackson High School officials in Everett, Washington against an instrumental performance of Ave Maria at a 2006 commencement ceremony. A student futilely challenged the school’s determination that the song was “an obvious religious piece” at a graduation that should be “strictly secular.”
Government entities also bear down on the Christian religion. After allowing baptisms in Sinking Creek in the Ozarks for an almost uninterrupted 50-year span, the National Park Service in August notified Gladden Baptist Church in Salem, Missouri that permits would now be required in advance of baptism ceremonies in the waterway. The requirement was later rescinded in response to the intervention of local Congressman Jason Smith.
And this month, in Ovid, Colorado, the director of a city-owned cemetery initially refused to inscribe the Ichthus or “Jesus fish” on the tombstone of a local preacher’s wife on the grounds that some people might be offended. Despite the fact that the cemetery is filled with headstones inscribed with religious symbols and Biblical verses, city officials refused to come to the family’s aid. The cemetery director defended his position with a logic-defying hypothetical: “What if someone wanted to put a swastika?” — Thereby disrespectfully equating a representation of Christ with a symbol associated with Nazi Germany. The city reversed itself only after public outcry and media attention.
The instances listed above make it readily apparent that the First Amendment is often conveniently misinterpreted to buttress the assault on the Christian religion and its expression, practice, and traditions. In this way, Christianity is being insidiously expunged from public life using false legal pretenses. The legitimate interpretation of the provisions of the First Amendment, which include prohibitions against government interference in public religious expression and the establishment of a national religion, has been twisted to prohibit Christian prayer in public places and schools. This is a false reading of “separation of church and state.”
Yet, as the instances listed above and many others illustrate, this interpretation doesn’t apply to “mosque and state.” Freedom of religion has come to mean no freedom for the practice of Christianity but ample freedom to practice Islam. If the war on Christianity in America isn’t halted soon, Barack Obama’s statement that “[w]hatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation,” will certainly become a reality.

Seattle is considering banning the words “brown bag” and “citizen” because the words offendblack people and illegals.
Daniel Greenfield responds, “When Seattle one day gets around to banning all words, because language is inherently offensive to the illiterate, and everyone is reduced to communicating with grunts and emphatic gestures, an era of true tolerance and nomadic lifestyles will be upon us.” That is hilarious Daniel! Well said.
George Orwell’s “1984″ prophecy is coming true. Freedom of Speech is dying. Censorship is growing. Controlling language = controlling thoughts. Controlling thoughts is mind control. Zombies. Robots. The walking dead.
When I grew up, I was banned from using certain words, not by the government, but by my father. I was banned from saying God’s name in vain, or using it as a curse word. I was also banned from saying euphemisms for God, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit, i.e. “golly,” “gee,” “gee-whiz,” “gosh,” “holy cow,” etc. I wasn’t allowed to say the “f” word, or the “n” word, or “sh**,” or even “crap.” I didn’t want to. I respected God and my parents and others.
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue…”
Dad said that the only biological systems used as ‘cuss’ words were the reproductive and the excretory systems. He said the human body was a magnificent masterpiece (Psalm 139) and that using body parts in a derogatory fashion was blasphemous to God, the Creator. I love that. I love that Dad taught me to respect God and the human body, mine and others’. Words are powerful. Using bad language affects your personality and your behavior.
I taught my children the same…

Last month during a town hall meeting in Phoenix, AZ, with Senator John McCain (R-AZ), a Marine by the name of Blaine Cooper voiced his disdain for the Senator, along with other Congressional leaders, and Barack Obama, in a patriotic and impassioned speech. Cooper stated that the aforementioned guilty parties have turned their back on the American people, values, and core beliefs, even so far as aiding terrorists. While McCain stood there grinning like an idiot and posturing like an inpatient five year old, Cooper went on to state that while representatives like McCain were elected by their constituents to protect them from the enemy, they have, in fact, become the enemy.
To finish off this truly admirable speech, Cooper said that if he were elected to office, he would try McCain and others for treason against the United States of America. With the exception of McCain grinning like the elitist RINO that he is and a few liberal trolls giving the thumbs down and booing, several of the town hall members erupted in applause at Cooper’s speech. The Senator responded to Cooper’s speech with the same condescending demeanor he displayed during the possible Syrian intervention.
While his town hall speech in Phoenix is earning him widespread support and recognition among Conservatives, the Leftist regime we are all ruled under has certainly kept its eye on Cooper. According to Police State USA, Cooper was contacted by local police and interrogated by the FBI for remarks made on Facebook referring to the federal government as being a “police state”. During his 45 minute interrogation with the FBI regarding his “questionable” Facebook comments, they informed him that the alternative to him not coming down to the local police station was for them to raid his home. In addition, the FBI pulled up a file of every known Facebook post Cooper has made, as well as information about his wife and parents.
So, what the FBI does to address comments about them operating as a police state — is to act like a police state! Makes perfect sense. Luckily for Cooper, once he was deemed not a “threat”, he was released. Who gave the directive to investigate Blaine Cooper? And why?
What kind of nation have we become where the law enforcement agencies that are supposed to protect citizens and apprehend REAL criminals are forcing interrogation sessions with a former Marine and firefighter in training, who is simply exercising his First Amendment right? And whats more, why are real criminals and terrorists like the Tsarnaev brothers given a pass by the FBI when ties to Muslim extremism exist? Why was the Boston Police Department not notified of the suspicious activities of the Tsarnaevs, but the Prescott Valley Police Department was notified of Blaine Cooper’s activities, and then summoned him to come in for an interrogation for statements critical of the government?
It is under this Administration and sell-out politicians like McCain that honest, freedom loving patriots like Blaine Cooper are being treated like enemies and the Tsarnaevs are left alone to collect welfare. After being called treasonous by a fellow member of the armed services, all McCain can do is laugh nervously and offer up an incredibly lame and hallow rebuttal? The complete lack of interest and concern for this country and its citizens lies in McCain’s response (or lack thereof). He clearly lost the concern and sense of duty he must have had at one time while serving in the military and instead sold his soul for a congressional paycheck.

To secure the Muslim worlds common interests, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has formed a new MEDIA advisory committee to foster the creation of international laws criminalizing the criticism of Islam. In other words, Muslim countries want to criminalize and silence free speech globally.
In case you did not know, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, “the collective voice of the Muslim world” is the largest international organization outside the United Nations. The primary target of proposed OIC international blasphemy laws is the United States of America.
The OIC Media Forum’s headquarters is in Istanbul, Turkey. Last month, the OIC announced it would be holding regular conferences to strategize media, legal and political efforts and instituting an aggressive campaign to correct the worlds view of Islam aimed at combating global Islamaphobic speech.
Apparently, the West’s disdain for Islamic terrorism, the reporting of genocide against global Christian communities and attempts to keep the public aware of the ongoing human rights abuses by Muslim governments is leaving an undesirable black mark on the so-called religion of peace.
The Organization of Islamic cooperation—and its 57 member states–has many objectives. All of the OIC’s goals are focused on the dominance of Islam and the shaping of international law to promote social, economic, cultural, scientific, and political and human rights that conform to Sharia or Quranic Law.
Under the tutelage of organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and their Muslim Brotherhood operatives, President Barrack Hussein Obama, is keeping an open mind to the adaptation of OIC anti-Islamophia laws, which would make it a crime to disparage Islam for their rampant persecution, torture and murder of the Global Christian community.
This should not come as a great surprise to an America where our government is censoring media reports of acts of Islamic terror, purging references to Jihad and the term Islamic terrorists from terrorism training manuals and is now openly characterizing Christianity and Patriotism as dangerous extremism.
So where is the entire so-called moderate Muslims—I hear many myopic Americans talking about—stand on Global Islamic leadership plans to criminalize American free speech?
More importantly, where are those misguided Americans on the growing Islamic influence at the United Nations. Perhaps they did not know that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation—the largest voting block at the United Nations—is now demanding a permanent seat on the U.N. Security council. That is right folks, the top 57 governments leading the Islamic world are demanding a collective seat at the international law making table.
United Nations Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu is in favor of granting the Organization of Islamic Cooperation a seat a permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council. I suspect President Obama also favors this decision.
While our national discussion is consumed with a dysfunctional government that could hit their butts with both hands, International influences are creepy up on America. Instead of glazing over when presented with facts of our future subjugation, the time to start fighting back is now.
By the time many Americans pull, their heads from the sand there will only two choices. Convert or die.

During Thursday’s congressional hearing with the contractors responsible for building the troubled ObamaCare federal exchanges, we learned that whether you end up enrolling in ObamaCare or not, no one who puts any information into the ObamaCare website can expect to have their privacy protected. Moreover, the fact that you are giving up your right to privacy is hidden in source code that reads, “You have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding any communication of any data transmitted or stored on this information system.”
During his questioning on this specific issue, Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) only received chilling answers and deflections from the primary contractor responsible for the site. When he asked Cheryl Campbell of CGI about it, her icy response was that another contractor was responsible. After some pressuring, she finally admitted that she was aware of the hidden source code.
Just a few minutes earlier, however, Ms. Campbell testified under oath that the ObamaCare website is HIPAA compliant — meaning everyone’s medical and personal information is protected by law. The privacy section on the ObamaCare website says your privacy will be protected. The hidden source code seems to say, “just kidding.”
The next questioner was Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) who immediately attacked Barton as running a “monkey court” and then dismissed the fact that people are unknowingly giving up their right to privacy. Pallone correctly pointed out that you are not required to give out any medical information on the ObamaCare site, but Pallone conveniently ignored the fact that HIPAA doesn’t just protect medical information. It is also supposed to protect personal information.
Just to get yourself an insurance quote on the ObamaCare site, you have been required to give out information on your income, place of employment, family, and answer a number of questions that verify your identity. For instance, I had to verify a recent car loan. And while you are not required to give out your social security number, you are repeatedly pressured to do so.
You are also asked detailed questions about your family situation; whether you are married and how many children you have. Just to get a quote, I had to also answer intrusive questions about my wife, even though she is already insured and won’t be buying insurance through ObamaCare.
Had I known, that without my knowledge, I was giving away my right to privacy, there is no way on earth I would’ve given the ObamaCare site as much information as I did.
The American people have been repeatedly assured that the website is HIPAA compliant; covered under the strictest of privacy regulations regarding medical and personal information.
But like absolutely everything else involving ObamaCare, our expectation of privacy was a lie — just like when Obama told us ObamaCare would decrease our premiums and that no one would lose their current insurance plans or their doctor.
The fact that the government is hiding the fact that you are giving up your right to privacy should be a major media scandal. But it won’t be.
This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii
for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country.
A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now. He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.
Dear President Obama,
My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.
I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor , allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.
One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.
So here goes.
I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.
I can’t figure out what country you are the president of. You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
” We’re no longer a Christian nation”, ” America is arrogant” – (Your wife even announced to the world,” America is mean- spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.) I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.
After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”
Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.
I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.
Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.
Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue . You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.
And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts , who was putting up a fight? You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.
One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.
You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.
You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.
And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle…
Harold B. Estes
Snopes confirms as true:
When a 95 year old hero of the “the Greatest Generation” stands up and speaks out like this, I think we owe it to him to send his words to as many Americans as we can. Please pass it on.
Law: A body of rules of conduct of binding legal force and effect, prescribed, recognized, and enforced by controlling authority.
In order for a law to be a law, it has to be applied to everyone: no exceptions, without prejudice, without favor, without exception. If it is not done so, then it is not a law, it is a suggestion. “Thou shalt not murder” (the proper interpretation of the word in the original Hebrew) is a law. You murder someone and you have a price to pay — a price extracted by both man and God. (Well, except maybe O.J. and Casey Anthony.)
I say this administration is lawless because it has a history of ignoring the U.S. Constitution (two links) and any other laws of our land and makes its own decisions, appointments and Executive Orders that are outside of the law. This administration will not obey the law, nor will it even acknowledge the law in some cases.
Without a president who will obey the law — the very Constitution his Oath of Office swore him to “preserve, protect and defend” — we have something besides a presidency as defined in the U.S. Constitution. According to the U.S. Constitution, the president’s powers are delineated in Article II:
He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.
The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.
He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.
With the exception of signing bills that Congress and the Senate have passed (or not signing them, whichever) that’s it. That’s all the president, constitutionally, has the right to do. (BTW, did you realize that the president, or the “Executive Branch”, is not mentioned at all in the Bill of Rights? Interesting, no?) Therefore,
Considering the extra-constitutional actions of this administration and the fact that he allegedly studied and taught the U.S. Constitution at a collegiate level one would think that he would understand the U.S. Constitution and the fact that we are supposed to have checks and balances, limited powers of each branch and he cannot — by law — do some of the things he has been doing.
One can make an argument that our nation has not been a Constitutional Republic (as it was established to be) for a long time. However, with this administration it has gotten to the point of no return without revolution. Thus, this administration has crossed the line completely and without halt to make this administration the very model of unconstitutional.
Seeing that this administration is unconstitutional, what is it if not constitutional?
However, this administration doesn’t care about what the Constitution says and he writes his own laws whenever he wants something and he decides to whom those laws are applied and who gets an exemption from them. Deciding to whom the law applies (no matter which law), what laws are enforced, and acting like a dictator equals dictatorial powers and that is extra-constitutional.
Having ignored, denied, sued to prevent the U.S. Constitution – which he swore on oath to “preserve, protect and defend” — from being enforced, he cannot be a constitutional president. He is acting unilaterally: what he says goes. Considering all of this, I say that (and here I will do one exception to ever using his name) Barack Hussein Obama is a DICTATOR and not the President of the United States of America. His own actions prove him thus.
BTW, if he can break the law via giving exemptions to the health care law, that makes the law null and void because it cannot, by definition, be a law so that means we do not have to obey it, either.

More evidence that the Obama Administration, and the Muslims he has as Administration Heads, is continuing it’s all out persecution of the Evangelical, and now Catholic, Churches. Let’s review what they have done so far;
Now read the following article published by FOX this morning.
By Todd Starnes
Todd’s American Dispatch
Published October 23, 2013
Soldiers attending a pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood say they were told that evangelical Christians and members of the Tea Party were a threat to the nation and that any soldier donating to those groups would be subjected to punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
A soldier who attended the Oct. 17th briefing told me the counter-intelligence agent in charge of the meeting spent nearly a half hour discussing how evangelical Christians and groups like the American Family Association were “tearing the country apart.”
Michael Berry, an attorney with the Liberty Institute, is advising the soldier and has launched an investigation into the incident.
“On the very base that was the site of mass murder carried out by a radicalized Muslim soldier, it is astonishing that it is evangelical groups that are being identified as a ‘threat.’”
– Tony Perkins, Family Research Council president
“The American public should be outraged that the U.S. Army is teaching our troops that evangelical Christians and Tea Party members are enemies of America, and that they can be punished for supporting or participating in those groups,” said Berry, a former Marine Corps JAG officer.
“These statements about evangelicals being domestic enemies are a serious charge.”
The soldier told me he fears reprisals and asked not to be identified. He said there was a blanket statement that donating to any groups that were considered a threat to the military and government was punishable under military regulations.
“My first concern was if I was going to be in trouble going to church,” the evangelical Christian soldier told me. “Can I tithe? Can I donate to Christian charities? What if I donate to a politician who is a part of the Tea Party movement?”
Another soldier who attended the briefing alerted the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. That individual’s recollections of the briefing matched the soldier who reached out to me.
“I was very shocked and couldn’t believe what I was hearing,” the soldier said. “I felt like my religious liberties, that I risk my life and sacrifice time away from family to fight for, were being taken away.”
And while a large portion of the briefing dealt with the threat evangelicals and the Tea Party pose to the nation, barely a word was said about Islamic extremism, the soldier said.
“Our community is still healing from the act of terrorism brought on by Nidal Hasan – who really is a terrorist,” the soldier said. “This is a slap in the face. “The military is supposed to defend freedom and to classify the vast majority of the military that claim to be Christian as terrorists is sick.”
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, tells me the Pentagon is pushing anti-Christian propaganda.
“On the very base that was the site of mass murder carried out by a radicalized Muslim soldier, it is astonishing that it is evangelical groups that are being identified as a ‘threat,’” he said. “Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel must immediately intervene to stop this march against the rights and freedom of our soldiers.”
The soldier said they were also told that the pro-life movement is another example of “radicalization.”
“They said that evangelical Christians protesting abortions are the mobilization stage and that leads to the bombing of abortion clinics,” he said, recalling the discussion.
An Army spokesman at the Pentagon tells me they do not maintain or publish a list of organizations considered extremist.
“None of these slides [shown at the briefing] were produced by the Army, but by soldiers who included information found during an Internet search,” the spokesman said.
He said commanders and other leaders were cautioned that they should not use “lists of extremists, hate groups, radical factions or the like compiled by any outside non-governmental groups or organizations for briefings, command presentations, or as a short cut to determining if a group or activity is considered to be extremist.”
Meanwhile, the public affairs office at Fort Hood is denying the soldiers’ allegations.
“The allegations you are asking about were brought to the attention of the Fort Hood leadership immediately and a (sic) inquiry is occurring,” read a statement from Tom Rheinlander, the public affairs director at Fort Hood. “At this time, initial information gathered about the training and what you claim occurred is not substantiated by unit leadership and soldiers present at this training venue.”
I sent the public affairs officer additional questions about the specific content of the briefing but he declined to respond.
But this is not the first time an Army briefing has labeled evangelicals as extremists. Last April an Army Reserve briefing classified Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism as “religious extremism.”
In a letter to Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.), Secretary of the Army John McHugh said the briefing in April was an isolated incident and the material used was not sanctioned by the Army.
McHugh said it was a “misguided attempt to explain that extremism is not limited to a single religion.”
Two weeks ago, several dozen active duty troops at Camp Shelby in Mississippi, were told the American Family Association, a well-respected Christian ministry, should be classified as a domestic hate group because it advocates for traditional family values.
Again, the military called it an isolated incident with a trainer using material that was not sanctioned by the military.
That explanation is wearing thin with American Christians.
“How much longer can the Army claim no knowledge or responsibility for these things?” Berry asked.
“These repeated incidents show either that this training was directed from Army leadership at the Pentagon, or else the Army has a real discipline and leadership problem on its hands because a bunch of rogue soldiers are teaching this nonsense.”
The most recent allegations at Fort Hood have drawn sharp rebuke from religious liberty groups around the nation.
“Why is the Army engaged in these anti-Christian training propaganda briefings?” asked Perkins, himself a veteran of the Marine Corps. “The only explanation is that this is a deliberate effort of the Obama administration to intimidate and separate soldiers from Christian groups that they support and that support them.”
Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance, called the military’s behavior dishonorable.
“Far from mere ‘isolated incidents,’ as the Army has dismissed previous occurrences, this latest incident demonstrates a pattern and practice of Army briefings identifying mainstream religions, such as Evangelical Christianity, Judaism, and Catholicism, as examples of ‘religious extremism’ similar to Al Qaeda, Hamas and the Ku Klux Klan,” he told me.
Perkins said it’s time for the Pentagon to “ensure that instructors carry out their role to train our troops to defend our freedom, and not push anti-Christian propaganda.”

There is an excellent new book out titled Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman. The book asks professing Christians a tough question: Are you a true follower of Christ or just a fan? Idleman classifies those who sustain their beliefs through good times and bad, those who are prepared to sacrifice for their beliefs as true believers. Fans, on the other hand, are those who fall away from the church the minute their faith requires anything of them; be it sacrifice, perseverance, or cost.
It struck me while reading this book that a similar question could be asked of conservatives. In fact, at a time when key leaders in the national Republican Party are recommending the abandonment of conservative principles as a way to broaden the party’s base, this is a perfect time to ask those who profess to be conservative the following question: Are you a true believer or just a fair-weather fan?
Idleman defines a fan as an enthusiastic admirer but not a true believer. I like that definition. It applies to conservatives in the same way that Idleman applies it to Christians. In Not a Fan Idleman uses the example of an ardent football fan to illustrate the difference between a fan and a true believer. Every weekend during the Fall you can see ardent fans in the stadiums across America supporting their favorite college and professional football teams. The ardent fan paints his body in the colors of his team, owns a jersey bearing the name and number of his favorite player, collects team-oriented memorabilia, and never misses a game in good weather or bad. But let his team go into a slump and struggle through several years of losing seasons, and the fan’s enthusiasm will wane. If the losing record persists, the fan will lose interest in the team and transfer his enthusiastic support to another team, one that is winning.
These fair-weather conservatives never seem to consider that a better way to broaden the Republican Party’s base would be to make a compelling case for adopting conservative principles to Americans of all stripes. Rather than abandoning foundational principles, why not persuade the ill-informed of the efficacy of those principles? Weak-kneed Republicans respond that it is too hard to make a case for conservative principles—that such an effort would take too long and the results would be mixed at best. The reason some Republicans find it so difficult to make a compelling case for conservative principles is that they don’t believe in these principles themselves. It is difficult to be passionate about or to defend principles you adopted out of political expedience rather than true belief.
The Republican Party is experiencing an identity crisis that could leave Democrats in power for the next 20 years. A party that does not know who it is and what it stands for cannot compete in presidential elections, nor can a party that strays from the beliefs it has held to for decades.
Ronald Reagan won by enthusiastically running on traditional conservative principles, values he never shied away from regardless of the audience. In short, President Reagan was a true believer in conservative principles, not a fair-weather fan. Yet he managed to broaden the Republican Party’s base beyond anything old-guard Republicans could ever have imagined. There is a lesson in his success for wobbly Republicans who are fair-weather fans of conservative principles rather than true believers in those principles.

When Erin’s teacher found out that she was going to write about God, she told the girl that she had to pick someone else and that she wouldn’t accept the assignment because it had something to do with God. The teacher went so far as to tell Erin that she had to take her assignment about God off of school property because it might be a violation of the First Amendment. How can writing about your religion be a violation of the freedom of religion? The teacher obviously was clueless about the Constitution and the law. Basically, the teacher told Erin that God was not allowed in her public school.
Erin ended up doing the assignment twice, first with God as her idol and then choosing Michael Jackson as an idol to write about, which was very acceptable to the teacher. However, due to the scene the teacher created, her fellow students began teasing her about her faith in God.
When Erin got home that day, she asked her mother if she was allowed to talk about God at school or not.
Erin’s mom, Erica contacted the principal to complain about the teacher’s reaction to her daughter’s desire to write about God. She said she asked the principal:
“How can you tell this baby, that’s a Christian, what she can say and what she can’t say?”“I told the principal this morning: would it be better if she wrote about Ellen DeGeneres? Of course there was no comment.”
Jeremy Dys, an attorney with the Liberty Institute came to the aid of the Snead family and met with the school officials. After the meeting, Erin was allowed to turn in her first assignment about God and received an A for her paper. After the meeting, Erin’s mom told the local news:
“[She simply] wanted Erin’s right to be able to express herself not to ever be taken away again.”
“I just wanted every Christian to know that we have a right to be able to express ourselves. We understand that they’ve taken prayer out of schools, but they cannot take God out of our children.”
“Of course students can talk and write about God in school. Young teachers, like Erin’s, have been barraged with so much false information for so long that they are afraid that a 10-year-old student’s coloring assignment might violate the First Amendment. That kind of intimidation by the ACLU and Freedom from Religion Foundation is wrong and is precisely what Liberty Institute was founded to combat.”
I’ve heard of numerous cases where uninformed teachers and administrators are so afraid of lawsuit that they readily accept the anti-Christian propaganda of the ACLU, Freedom from Religion Foundation and other atheist groups that readily trample all over the constitutional rights of students and teachers. If your kids or anyone else’s kids that you know of have had their constitutional rights violated by teachers or school administrators, you need to contact someone like Liberty Institute to help get those rights back. If not challenged and proven wrong, teachers and school officials will continue to trample all over your child’s rights of freedom of religion and speech.

We all know that the 2nd Amendment wasn’t at all clumsily written. In fact, it states quite unequivocally that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. You can’t get much clearer than that.
Morgan was at the National Press Club plugging his own book, entitled Shooting Straight: Guns, Gays, God and George Clooney. During his spiel, he argued for a “rephrasing” of the 2nd Amendment:
“That to me shows you how clumsily worded, and I say that with great respect for the Founding Fathers, the Second Amendment was… The comma in the middle is perhaps the most dangerous comma ever written because it can be interpreted in different ways.”
The “comma in the middle” separates the phrase “being necessary to the security of a free State.”
Piers added that as “very right-wing people took over,” they redefined the 2nd Amendment to mean a guarantee of an individual right rather than of the collective right of a well-regulated militia:
“They redefined it as an individual’s right to bear arms, no longer as part of a well-regulated militia… When you’ve got so many amendments anyway, you say it’s a sacred document, it’s fine but it’s a bit like saying the Bible is a sacred document. And I speak as a good Irish Catholic… I think you just have to look at it not so much as a sacred document but as an evolutionary document, hence the amendments that have already taken place. I think there is quite the argument to have a debate … a debate on whether the wording of the Second Amendment should be rephrased.”
It doesn’t need to be rephrased. It’s fine the way it is. It just needs to be understood the way the Founding Fathers understood it. It needs the proper historical context.
If you read the great political theorists and thinkers of the time, including the Founding Fathers, you’ll find that there is very little room (none, actually) for debate as to what was meant by “well regulated,” “Militia,” and “free State.”
Today, we might think of “well regulated” to mean subject to government regulations, controls, restrictions, inspections, etc. But that isn’t at all what was meant over two centuries ago. It simply meant well-trained. Self-regulated. Disciplined.
The Militia referred to anyone capable of serving in a “well regulated Militia.” In other words, anyone. The people. And it was this group of people who would be well-trained in the use of weapons and military tactics that would serve as the check on the government’s standing army. It didn’t even necessarily refer to defending one’s country from a foreign, invading enemy. That’s what the national military was for, and I’m sure the militia would gladly join in in that event. But the militia was that group of people who would band together and defend their liberties from a tyrannical government.
The “free State” didn’t refer to the individual states of the union, and it didn’t refer to the federal government either. It meant “free country.” Free from despotic rule.
So, to preserve a free country, well-trained and self-regulated militias, composed of law-abiding and capable individuals, should serve as the check and balance on a government that’s bent toward tyranny. Oh, and that right of the people shall not be infringed.
In order for this militia to be able to adequately defend liberty, it needs to possess at least the caliber of weaponry used by the government attempting to oppress its citizenry. The better weapons we have, the nicer our government becomes to us.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
I don’t think that Piers’s objection is that the Amendment wasn’t written clearly enough. It’s that it wasn’t written to his specifications. He doesn’t like it. If he were given the opportunity to “rephrase” the 2nd Amendment, I’m sure he’d amend it to include exceptions for semi-automatic weapons and magazines with more than a 10-round capacity. And he’d state in no uncertain terms that every gun buyer is to have a background check and mental health screening to make sure that no [legal] guns end up in the wrong hands. And no gun shows allowed. And no gun transfers without the government knowing about it. Actually, he’d probably find it a lot easier to just scrap the entire Amendment.

http://www.allenbwest.com expands reach of principled, conservative leader
PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL, OCTOBER 18, 2014 – Building on the phenomenal growth of his social media presence, Colonel Allen B. West today launched his own personal website. Allenbwest.com will help expand the reach of his conservative message, provide a rich resource of facts and perspective, and serve as a hub for the growing number of endeavors in which West is involved including an upcoming book, The Allen West Foundation, The Allen West Guardian Fund, speaking engagements and his media presence on Fox News, Washington Times Communities and other outlets.
Since leaving office, West’s influence has expanded at an almost unheard of rate, with his Facebook followers alone growing from 189,000 in January 2013 to over 630,000 today. Clearly his unapologetic, courageous voice is resonating across the nation, and his website will give even greater exposure to his principled stance on a greater variety of issues facing our nation.
“To return our nation to its constitutional principles, to change the direction our nation is heading and restore our American exceptionalism, we must ensure our conservative voices are not attacked and gagged by the liberal media,” said Col. West, “With this website we are proud to join those who will not be silenced.”
West’s site is part of the Liberty Alliance, a network of more than 40 web sites dedicated to advancing Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. The company’s members and strategic partners leverage the power of new media to promote traditional values and generate more than 1,000,000 page views each day.
“We are honored to have Colonel Allen West partner with Liberty Alliance. Colonel West stands as a beacon of hope, freedom, and courage. I can’t think of anyone that more closely represents our values and goals here at Liberty Alliance.” – Jared Vallorani, CIO
About Allen B. West
Allen B. West was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia in the same neighborhood where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached. He is the third of four generations of military servicemen in his family.
During his decorated 22-year career in the United States Army, Lieutenant Colonel West served in several combat zones: in Operation Desert Storm, in Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he was a Battalion Commander in the Army’s 4th Infantry Division, and later in Afghanistan where he served as a civilian military adviser.
In November of 2010, Congressman West became the first black Republican from Florida since Reconstruction to be elected to the United States Congress.

The troubled HealthCare.gov website may be having problems pulling in applicants for ObamaCare, but that’s not stopping President Obama’s political arm from pulling in cash off the dysfunctional site.
Through his political group Organizing for Action, Obama sent a videotaped message to supporters in an email Tuesday evening.
In the video, the president said “the website has not worked as smoothly as it was supposed to,” but “we’re gonna get it fixed.” As he’s said before, the president added: “The Affordable Care Act is much more than a website.”
The email, though, also appealed for donations, saying “the other side will spend millions to maintain the status quo.”
The group has been organizing a multitude of events and social media campaigns around the health care law’s implementation. OFA said those efforts will continue, but the group isn’t adjusting its strategy in response to the website’s issues.
The campaign-style effort to defend the law comes as the administration, in Washington, tries to soothe both insurance companies and Democratic allies about the site’s operation.
Health insurance executives were scheduled for a meeting at the White House on Wednesday. It included Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough.
On Wednesday, the administration also sent Mike Hash, who runs the health reform office at Health and Human Services, to Capitol Hill to brief lawmakers on the law’s implementation.
Only Democrats were invited to that session, prompting protest from House Speaker John Boehner, whose spokesman called it a “snub” and said the administration should brief House Republicans, too.
But a Boehner spokesman said Wednesday that HHS has since agreed to provide House Republicans with a briefing on the site. “We are working out details,” the spokesman said.
Obama has turned to longtime adviser Jeffrey Zients to provide management advice to help fix the system. Zients, a former acting director of the Office of Management and Budget and a veteran management consultant, will be on a short-term assignment at HHS before he’s due to take over as director of Obama’s National Economic Council next year.
Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden and top White House officials held a call with business leaders Tuesday about the health law and other issues. Business Forward, a trade group friendly to the White House, said the administration asked the group to invite leaders to hear directly from Biden.
The Associated Press contributed to this report.
Many Americans do not know, or have forgotten, American POW Sgt. Bowe Robert Bergdahl. Sgt. Bergdahl’s capture was not the media event we experienced like the highly publicized rescue of Jessica Lynch during her 30 day capture/imprisonment. However, it has been over four years since Sgt. Bergdahl’s June 30, 2009 capture and imprisonment in Afghanistan by a Taliban-affiliated insurgent group. It is time America demanded his release and return to his family.
At the September 20, 2013 Pentagon ceremony commemorating Americas POW/MIA’s, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel proclaimed, “Our hearts today are with the Bergdahl family. Using our military, intelligence, and diplomatic tools, the United States is continuing its strong efforts to secure Sergeant Bergdahl’s’ safe release.” US Central Command confirmed, “we are still actively looking for him and following leads wherever we can get them.”
After four years of Hillary Clinton and a changing of the guard to John Kerry, the State Department is less vocal about its efforts to secure Bergdahl’s release. Apparently, State is still miffed by the Bergdahl Family decision to go public about their son’s ongoing imprisonment. My guess is—much like Benghazi—the Obama administration wanted this all kept within the federal family.
It has been widely reported that the Taliban affiliated Haqqanis holding Sgt. Bergdahl have demanded the release of Guantanamo detainees before they will agree to returning the 27 year old Bergdahl to his family in America. On May 23, 2013, President Obama lifted a moratorium on Gitmo detainees transfer to Yemen. Currently, ninety detainees at Gitmo are cleared for release. To date, none have been released or transferred.
Many in Congress including Senator John McCain oppose a prisoner exchange to bring Bowe Bergdahl home. Apparently, McCain feels a better deal can be struck with the Taliban. A deal that does not release dangerous terrorists out into the world community. Perhaps McCain forgets the deal he struck with his captors to secure his release.
President Obama has yet to publicly acknowledge and commit to bringing Sgt. Bergdahl home. Where is Senator McCain on that?
Yet last month, a sealed plea deal was accepted by the US Department of Justice in the case of one Eric Harroun, a US national and army veteran. Harroun, a Muslim covert had been charged with providing material support to a terrorist group and faced life in prison for fighting alongside an al-Qaeda affiliate group in Syria. He pled guilty to an obscure law regulating munitions exports, was sentenced to time served, a nominal fine, and still maintains—as part of the plea deal–his voting rights and right to bear arms. All to cover President Obama’s butt.
Harroun considers his prosecution and conviction a betrayal by his government. Really? I wonder how Sergeant Bergdahl is feeling about his government’s loyalty and dedication to HIS rights.
The war in Afghanistan continues to wind down. For years, the United States has been releasing Afghan detainees from military prisons in Afganhistan. This has been going on periodically, every year, since Sgt. Bergdahl was captured. So why is Bergdahl not home today? My very real fear is—like so many others—Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl may be left behind.
This is one of those occasions that I feel great shame for our country. Great shame. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is our son, America. He deserves better than a politically correct quote form the Secretary of Defense. He sure as hell deserves more attention than President Obama and his press gave to Trayvon Martin.
Bring Sergeant Bergdahl home now.

Shove is coming to slap, stab and shoot. All hell is going to break loose. This is precisely what the Left wants: an excuse to take over.
Almost three years ago I attended a meeting hosted by newly-elected Rep. Daniel Webster in Florida. Webster, a successful businessman, father, grandfather and respected state legislator had just been elected to the House, defeating incumbent Alan Grayson, a witless thug from New York, big promoter of ObamaCare, the colossal disaster of the decade.
The meeting was held in Orlando, the purpose being to inform constituents about debt and deficit at the federal level. Webster had built a solid reputation for many years as a gentleman, effective leader, and bipartisan problem-solver.
Within minutes of the start of this meeting, several men in the audience began shouting, calling Webster a liar. The Congressman was not able to get a word in, and others in the audience could not hear him in any case. Without exaggeration, Webster tried to speak for 30 minutes only to be interrupted by these men each and every time he started a sentence. It was one of the most horrendous displays I’ve ever witnessed.
Finally, I could take no more. I stood to confront these men, shouting at them as loudly as they shouted at Webster. One of the men made a move toward me with clenched fists. Others in the audience joined me against these saboteurs. Finally, police showed up but the disruptions quelled for only a short time. Soon, the men were back at it. I confronted them again, and again, the police restored order. Later, I learned at least two of them had worked on the Grayson campaign, obvious plants. The Australian seated next to me leaned over to say, “They want violence. They actually want physical violence.” I added: “But only if they can blame it on us.”
Webster went on to win re-election. Grayson jumped to another district and snookered the voters there.
You may remember Grayson’s television commercial when he ran against Webster, one of the slimiest pieces of political propaganda ever aired, a piece filled with such outlandish lies, even CNN’s Anderson Cooper called Grayson a liar to his face.
Here is the commercial and Grayson being grilled by another reporter over his gross misrepresentations.
Here is the scumbag recently, joining the rest of the hyenas, condemning the Tea Party, comparing it to the KKK. This is the same venomous imp, during a House healthcare debate, who accused Republicans of wanting people to die.
Grayson is only one of many Democrats willing to say anything to gain political advantage. As we’ve seen in recent years, and especially in recent months, the actual endorsement of violence and killing frequents many discussions about the Tea Party or any conservative willing to disagree with the Obama regime. Dissent is being criminalized.
Now we have Democrats and MoveOn.org actually calling for the arrest of Republican leaders, insisting they be prosecuted for having an opinion and for exercising their constitutional rights: American fascism on parade. Aside from Cher and some actor actually calling for violence and murder directed at Tea Party individuals and Sen. Ted Cruz, here you have one of the programmed robots on MSKGB comparing Cruz to cultist David Koresh. It has become something beyond bizarre.
Celebrities, media talking heads, politicians and others who participate in verbal violence are bad enough, but those same people who actually encourage physical violence and killing, they are the ones who should face criminal charges. They are the real haters. They are the real traitors.
If they persist, like the Grayson operatives in Orlando, we will have violence, because they insist on escalation, launching serial assaults with increasing ferocity.
Our response will be purely self-defense, measured, and adequate.

Recently Dr. Carson made statements about Obamacare being the worst thing since slavery. He recently went on the left wing CNN talker Roland Martin’s radio show to explain what he meant, and there is no backing down in Dr. Carson.
Dr. Carson: This nation was founded on the principle that it would be a new type of nation that was for, of, and by the people. A constitution was put in place that would assure that the people remained at the pinnacle of power and that the central government would never reach the point where it had control of the people. This fundamentally changes the relationship… It places the government now at the pinnacle because it now is placed on a road that will give it control of everyone’s health. Your health is the most important thing that you have, and I think most of us are asleep at the wheel. We don’t actually realize what’s happening.
Roland Martin: But Dr. Carson, how is the government, how’s the government controlling people’s health when you talk about providing health care.
Dr. Carson: What do you need for good healthcare? You need a patient and you need ahealthcare provider. Along has come a middleman to facilitate the relationship. Now it has become the primary entity with the patient and the healthcare provider at its beckon call. Completely turns the situation upside-down. And this is only the beginning. What you will see – mark my words – is that a lot of the insurance companies will begin to fold. People will have fewer and fewer options. Ultimately we will have a single-payer system if we don’t stop this from happening. And that will give the government the kind of control that it needs. And, you know, all you have to do is look back through history – and this is something that most people don’t, they don’t know very much about history, even in this country.
Too right, Dr. Carson. Keep preaching the truth — hopefully someone starts listening.

Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson sent out a fundraising email with a burning cross to compare the tea party to the Klu Klux Klan.
The Florida congressman, who was known for his over-the-top antics in the House during a previous tenure in Congress, also excerpted a transcript of a recent appearance on MSNBC’s “Politics Nation w/ Al Sharpton” in which he declared that, after the government shutdown, “the tea party is no more popular than the Klan.”
In the email, the burning cross is used as a “t” to spell out “tea party.” See part of the email below:

Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. that was instilled in him by his family and mentors…it seems to have never left him.
It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America . Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.
Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets “goose bumps” when a band plays “The Star Spangled Banner,” or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of ” America the Beautiful?” Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday –
Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn’t really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unites us.
He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better and grateful and proud that in a short time our country became a leader, and a protector of many.
Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.
· Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.
· Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people – on a daily basis!
Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America , and the epitome of a Demagogue.

Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood Administration is “quietly” releasing $1.6 billion to aid the Taliban in Pakistan. Under the guise of an “improved” relationship with the country, which is headed by a mere puppet in Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, this is nothing more than giving the money directly to the Islamic terrorists. In September, a church bombing killed nearly 100 people, and scores of terrorists attacks have occurred recently in the country. This means one thing: Obama is openly aiding the enemies of America.
Open aid to the enemy is President Obama’s bread and butter. This is the one thing he does best. Pakistan was Osama bin Laden’s safe haven for years, and when he was killed (supposedly) in 2011, Pakistani officials were outraged over the covert operation. The “relationship” between the two countries turned frosty. Now, there has been a miraculous breakthrough. In another Obama Administration joke, this is one of the best.
On October 23rd, Obama will meet with Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at the White House. This is the first time in years that this has happened. Surely, this meeting will be an Obama apology meeting; an apology for the airstrikes that killed Pakistani soldiers, an apology for the raid that killed bin Laden, and a renewed cooperation for fighting “terrorism” in Pakistan through mutual cooperation.
This is deliberately giving billions in aid to the Taliban in Pakistan. Nothing more, nothing less. The sham government, led by the Prime Minister, has done nothing to stop the Taliban’s terror, nor will they ever do anything to stop it.
“The Pakistanis do not like being seen as dependent on their heavy-handed partners. The Americans are uncomfortable highlighting the billions provided to a government that is plagued by corruption and perceived as often duplicitous in fighting terrorism. Last week, the Pakistan Taliban insisted U.S. drone strikes in the country’s northwest must stop before they will consider peace talks with the government.”
Pakistan is not fighting terrorism, nor is any other Islamic country in the Middle East, but it does prove one thing. Obama will provide aid to any Sunni Muslim controlled government in the Middle East, or “rebel” forces.
Obama cut off aid to Egypt when the Muslim Brotherhood was taken down by the Egyptian military, and now Egypt is looking to Russia for aid. That $1.5 billion in missing aid is going to create a huge headache for the Egyptians this year. The Administration is actively aiding Al-Qaeda led Syrian rebels in their efforts to take down President Bashir al-Assad. Less anyone forget, Al-Qaeda was responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This is a move that should be considered treasonous.
When it comes to Pakistan, the Peshawar church bombing last month should be enough to keep any aid from coming into the country. A splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the church attack, blaming the U.S. program of drone strikes in tribal areas of Pakistan.
Did the government do anything? No.
The U.S. will end major military operations in Afghanistan in 2014, and with the Pakistani Taliban actively aiding the Afghan forces, the situation in both countries is only likely to get worse. Western style government will never be compatible with Islam.
Al-Qaeda and the Taliban are virtually synonymous. The U.S. State Department announced today that it has designated a terrorist who has fought for the Taliban since the late 1990s and continues to support al Qaeda. “Since 2006, CNG has run training camps, dispatched suicide bombers, provided safe haven for al Qaeda fighters, and conducted cross-border operations in Afghanistan against the United States and its allies,” the State Department said in a press release. “In addition to its attacks against international forces in Afghanistan, CNG is also responsible for assassinations and intimidation operations against civilians in Afghanistan and Pakistan.”
Sunni Muslim terrorists stick together. And no one should know this any better than Obama.
State Department officials said the renewal of aid wasn’t determined by any single event.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to talk publicly about the aid relationship ahead of Sharif’s visit. They said the money would start reaching Pakistan in 2014 but take several years to disburse fully.
“Pakistan’s long-term stability is of critical national security interest to the U.S., so we remain committed to helping achieve a more secure, democratic and prosperous state, including through continued civilian and military assistance,” said Dan Feldman, the State Department’s deputy special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan. He said the assistance plan will deliver results for both countries and enhance Pakistan’s ability to fight terrorism.
Wow, this sounds so comfy cozy. No “improvements” will ever be made. The Taliban will pocket the aid money and continue to wreak havoc on Christians and fellow Muslims in the area. Nothing changes. The enemy just gets stronger.
President Obama is a wolf aiding and abetting America’s moral enemy, but the reality is that he is the enemy, and he’s not being forced to hide it.

Zakaria contended on Sunday’s program that the Tea Party is an extremist group, akin to “radicals, anarchists, Black Panthers or other revolutionary movements.” He claimed that the Tea Party used “extreme rhetoric” (without providing proof) and that conservatives in general had talked about “decay, despair, and decline” for decades. (The opposite is true: conservatives tend to be more optimistic than liberals, who prefer metaphors like the “two Americas” or the Dickensian “99%,” only taking pride in the country when taking power.)
Predictably, Zakaria arrived at his point–copied, unsurprisingly, from the rest of the mainstream media: conservatives are racists, bitter clingers who cannot deal with a diverse modern society, “misty-eyed in their devotion to a distant republic…passionate in their dislike of the messy, multiracial…democracy,” etc.
Zakaria ended with an admonition to conservatives: “[Y]ou cannot love America in theory, and hate it in fact.” What an amazing accusation, even from Zakaria.
The idea that political opposition is a form of sedition has left the fever swamps of the far-left and has infested MSNBC and now CNN–and through CNN, the world. Gone are the days when dissent was patriotic. Now it is evidence of hatred, treason, thoughtcrime.
Speaking of hating America “in fact,” Zakaria is among the many on the left who evince a strong dislike for the Constitution and wish to change it fundamentally. Yet the Tea Party–whose guiding principles are that the government must adhere to the Constitution and spend within its means–are somehow the racists who hate America. The fact that Ted Cruz, public enemy #1, is a foreign-born Hispanic is somehow discounted.
Zakaria’s rantings are what pass for thought in much of the liberal intelligentsia. Typically, he is not really expressing his own original thoughts but repeating much of what is echoing in elite media circles.
Say what you will about Cruz’s tactics, but the fact that he is loathed by such people is the clearest evidence that he is doing something right. They hate the Constitution and fear the diverse, dynamic movement that defends it.
No, this is not a joke. After five plus years of illegal and immoral activity from the most corrupt administration since the Grant administration, liberals want to see Republicans arrested and tried for sedition because they stood against Obamacare and raised the debt ceiling during the budget battle.
It would be a lot easier not to laugh at this “petition” if these liberals were equally as mad at the NSA for spying on us, or the Justice Department for perverting justice, or the State Department for covering up scandals, or the Secret Service for whoring around on duty, or the National Parks Service for using more money to shut down parks they could have left open, or the murder and abandonment of four Americans at the consulate in Benghazi, or the various departments that are accountable for the Fast and Furious scandals, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
In fact – it’s not funny. It’s a downright travesty that these liberals would pretend that this “crime” the Republicans have committed is anywhere near as egregious as what their little messiah has been doing for the last five years.
Here’s the petition statement:
I call on the Justice Department of the United States of America to arrest Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Speaker of the House John Boehner, and other decision-making House Republican leaders for the crime of seditious conspiracy against the United States of America.
Here’s the background on the petition:
The House GOP leadership’s use of the Hastert Rule and H. Res 368 to shut down the government and threaten the U.S. economy with default is an attempt to extort the United States government into altering or abolishing the Affordable Care Act, and thus, is self-evidently a seditious conspiracy. Arrest the perpetrators in Congress immediately and bring them to justice.
This is what gets the left fired up, folks – Republicans daring to disagree with them. When Democrats disagree with a President, it’s called patriotism. When Republicans disagree, it’s called sedition. What a disgusting display. Worse yet, it’s already got over 50,000 signatures.

effort, instead of God’s blessings;
I would promote an attitude of loving things and using people, instead of
the other way around;
I would dupe entire states into relying on gambling for their state revenue;
I would convince people that character is not an issue when it comes to
I would make it legal to take the life of unborn babies;
I would make it socially acceptable to take one’s own life, and invent
machines to make it convenient;
I would cheapen human life as much as possible so that life of animals are
valued more than human beings;
I would take God out of the schools, where even the mention of His name was
grounds for a lawsuit;
I would come up with drugs that sedate the mind and target the young, and I
would get sports heroes to advertise them;
I would get control of the media, so that every night I could pollute the
minds of every family member for my agenda;
I would attack then family, the backbone of any nation. I would make
divorce acceptable and easy, even fashionable. If the family crumbles, so
does the nation;
I would compel people to express their most depraved fantasies on canvas and

Bible is for the naive:
I would dull the minds of Christians, and make them believe that prayer is
not important, and that faithfulness and obedience are optional;
I GUESS I WOULD LEAVE THINGS PRETTY MUCH THE WAY THEY ARE
If only the National Security Agency and the IRS would have shared with the Army its techniques for monitoring what Christian organizations are saying.
Maybe then the Army would not have labeled the American Family Association a “hate group” and put its military brass in the position of having to backtrack from their stated position and face possible legal action.
Wright said the information about AFA “did not come from official Army sources, nor was it approved by senior Army leaders, senior equal opportunity counselors or judge-advocate personnel.”
But Tim Wildmon, president of AFA, one of the country’s largest Christian ministries, said the issue is not resolved.
“We are probably going to be taking legal action. The Army has smeared us. They’ve defamed the American Family Association,” he said.
Brian Fischer, AFA’s director of issues analysis, said the source likely was the Southern Poverty Law Center, which routinely labels Christians who adhere to biblical teaching on homosexuality as “hate groups.”
“The blatantly false ‘hate’ allegation is coming from the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is now a thoroughly discredited source on any subject, especially hate,” Fischer wrote. “In fact, for spreading malicious lies about pro-family groups, SPLC belongs on its own hate group list. They’ve made a despicable career out of using lies, distortions and innuendo to whip up reckless and dangerous animosity against groups which defend the values of the Founders.”
Fischer said the “real hate group here is the SPLC.”
That isn’t news to anyone familiar with the attack on the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The convicted assailant, Floyd Lee Corkins, he chose to attack FRC because the organization was listed as an “anti-gay” hate group by SPLC on its website.
FRC promotes traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs about the family and homosexuality, but SPLC claims the organization’s “real specialty is defaming gays and lesbians.”
Corkins, a former volunteer at an LGBT community center, pleaded guilty to terrorism. It was on Aug. 15, 2012, when the heavily armed Corkins walked into FRC headquarters and began shooting with the intent of killing “as many people as I could.” He managed to shoot and injure just one person, facilities manager Leo Johnson, who is credited with heroically stopping the attack.
In a speech at recent the Values Voter Summit 2013, Alveda King, a niece of Martin Luther King Jr., condemned the practice of labeling Christian organizations “hate” groups.
She said Corkins “came to FRC as a gunman, fueled by hate mongering from the Southern Poverty Law Center.”
“The shooter admitted he was directed to FRC’s location by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website. While SPLC claims to fight against hate, they have been saying hateful things about the Family Research Council and perhaps other groups who are represented her today,” she said.
“Today the shooter is behind bars as the result of being convicted for domestic terrorism. But the SPLC and many others, who couch hate and anger in false claims of civil rights activism, still roam free to confuse the masses with their deceptions,” said King.
Sandy Rios, another vocal advocate on behalf of Christian organizations, also spoke at the summit.
“We have 2.5 million constituents, we have 190 radio stations, we have a journal. And just, not that long ago, the SPLC has decided that we are in fact a hate group,” she said.
It was the SPLC’s own letter asking members of Congress to boycott the summit that gave supporting evidence, she said.
She quoted from the SPLC letter: “Given the demonizing lies about the LGBT community spread by the host, the Family Research Council and another major sponsor of the event, the American Family Association, we urge you not to lend the prestige of your office to the summit.”
Rios continued: “We all know that a little more than a year ago, Floyd Corkins came into the offices of the Family Research Council because he had looked on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website, checked their list of ‘hate’ groups, found FRC and a couple of others, gone into the building with the idea that he would commit mass murder. With a bag full of Chick-fil-A sandwiches that he was going to stuff in their mouths after he murdered them.”
She noted SPLC has refused to apologize and remove FRC and AFA from their list of hate groups.
“But let me tell you something about why this is important,” she said. “The Southern Poverty Law Center sounds great, doesn’t it? You know it’s always had a reputation, sort of a history of helping people in the civil rights movement. And they had a good reputation. That’s what people think they do. But that’s not really what they do.”
Rios said SPLC “now has millions of dollars in funding, endowments in excess of $223 million, and lots of off shore accounts.”
“Let me just say that the American Institute of Philanthropy has given an F grade to the SPLC for their excessive reserves,” she said.
Rios charged SPLC’s “main business is attacking and suing conservative organizations.”
“They are out to destroy people like the Family Research Council, the American Family Association, and people like you,” she said.
“Hate is a cottage industry for the SPLC,” charged Rios.
“And let me give you just an idea of some of the things that they do. They have a hate map and they list on their hate map, at least at this writing, they listed 1,018 groups,” she said.
“So, the interesting thing about it is the statistics on crime, the hate crimes, between 1996 and 2011 decreased by 29 percent while the number of hate groups the SPLC identified rose 69 percent. A little strange. So when law enforcement and others looked into this list they found that many of these groups don’t even exist. So the SPLC I have to say is not to be trusted. And yet, the reason I am spending so much time telling you about them is that, in fact, they are used as a resource by the Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Pentagon, and thousands of local law enforcement agencies. They conduct trainings all around this country, informing these groups of who the haters are and we are on that list. We are on that list.”
WND has reported that the U.S. military already had been caught teaching that the Founding Fathers, whose beliefs and political positions could accurately be described in today’s terminology as conservative, were “extremists.”
And according to a study at the West Point Military Academy, those who make up the right-wing segment in society constitute a danger to the U.S.
Then it was revealed that a far-left organization that was caught providing information to a terrorist later convicted of a domestic attack was “advising” the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
And this week came the Starnes’ report revealing U.S. Army soldiers at a Mississippi base were being instructed that the American Family Association is a “hate group.”
Responding to the report, AFA places the blame at the top of the military food chain.
Brian Fischer, the AFA’s director of issues analysis, told WND the government’s hostility is rooted entirely in the groups’ opposition to same-sex marriage and open homosexuality in the military. AFA also asserts that the Obama administration is using the list of “hate groups” compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a radical leftist group.
<script height=”337px” width=”600px” src=”http://player.ooyala.com/iframe.js#pbid=29c9fd42b6564348812f1c7d4ff9252d&ec=YzOHB2ZjrhLdDSsibuQdfobzcTZOa5bS”></script>
Fischer responded to Starnes’ report.
“If our military wasn’t headed by a commander in chief who is hostile to Christian faith, these allegations would be laughed off every military base in the world,” he said.
Fischer said the act of linking the organization to hate simply because it adheres to biblical teachings about homosexuality is unjustified.
“The truth is that AFA doesn’t hate anyone. We love everybody. We love homosexuals enough to tell them the truth about the moral, spiritual and physical dangers of homosexual conduct,” he wrote in a commentary on the exploding controversy.
The Obama administration’s attacks on conservatives date back to just weeks after he took office.
At that time a newly unclassified Department of Homeland Security report warned against the possibility of violence by unnamed “right-wing extremists,” including opponents of abortion.
The report was followed by only days by a report from the Missouri Information Analysis Center that warned law enforcement officials to watch out for individuals with “radical” ideologies based on Christian views.
Officials with the DHS later told WND they would refuse to identify the authors of the report or comment on any actions taken in response to the controversy.
But the steady drumbeat of statements from the administration even prompted members of both parties in Congress to blast the comments.
The Department of Defense later was caught teaching that those who oppose abortion are “low-level terrorists.”
It was only weeks later that SPLC confirmed to WND it published a report and delivered it to law enforcement officers across the nation that lumped those who are dedicated to the constitutional principles on which the nation was founded with crazed killers.
It then was revealed SPLC was advising DHS formally on how to “combat violent extremism” and the DHS was caught monitoring a blog posted by a Christian who was forced to flee Brazil because of the conflict between that nation’s pro-homosexual “hate crimes” agenda and his advocacy for traditional marriage.
The Obama administration declined comment on its decision to monitor Julio Severo’s unabashedly Christian Last Days Watchman blog.
Early this year a West Point study from the U.S. Military Academy’s Combating Terrorism Center linked opposition to abortion and other “fundamental” positions to terrorism.
The study, “Challenges from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right,” cites “anti-abortionists” as an active threat for terrorist activity.
“The anti-abortionists have been extremely productive during the last two decades, amassing 227 attacks, many of them perpetrated without the responsible perpetrators identified or caught,” author Arie Perliger wrote. “And while, in both cases, the 1990s were more violent than the last decade, in the case of anti-abortion, the trend is much more extreme, as 90 percent of attacks were perpetrated before 2001.”
American Life League President Judie Brown called it a smear tactic.
“I can see exactly what is going on with reference to the pro-life movement. The use of two words expose the bias and hatred for what we stand for as a movement. Those words are ‘attacks’ and ‘violence’,” Brown said.
Herb Titus, a constitutional law professor, former dean of the Regent University School of Law and distinguished fellow with the Inter-American Institute for Philosophy, Government, and Social Thought, says it’s an attempt to link conservative thought with violence.
“Professor Perliger has adopted the strategy of many left-wing members of the professoriate, concentrating on the behavior of a few in order to discredit many who hold similar views but who do not engage in any form of violence,” Titus said.
“His theory is that of the iceberg, that which as seen may be small, but it hides what is a much larger threat just below the surface. Obviously, the professor disagrees with those who favor small government, cutting back of federal government encroachments upon the powers of the state and to discredit this movement focuses on a few gun-toting militia,” Titus said.
Titus turns his attention to who he believes is the source of the study.
“Like so many in the Obama administration, Perliger does not want to engage in any dialogue on the issues, but just discredit an entire political movement by ad hominem charged words,” Titus said. “Perliger is not a serious scholar, but a propagandist for the existing regime.”
The military teaching that the colonists were “extremists” was traced back to SPLC.
Judicial Watch, a government corruption monitor, said it obtained records regarding the “preparation and presentation of training materials on hate groups or hate crimes distributed or used by the Air Force.”
The teaching claimed: “In U.S. history, there are many examples of extremist ideologies and movements. The colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule and the Confederate states who sought to secede from the Northern states are just two examples.”
The 9/11 attacks by Muslims who killed nearly 3,000 people are called a “historical event.”

Although I doubt anyone here is even a little surprised by this, this will send shockwaves among the left who love to claim we’re uneducated morons.
A finding in a study on the relationship between science literacy and political ideology surprised the Yale professor behind it: Tea party members know more science than non-tea partiers.
Yale law professor Dan Kahan posted on his blog this week that he analyzed the responses of a set of more than 2,000 American adults recruited for another study and found that, on average, people who leaned liberal were more science literate than those who leaned conservative.
However, those who identified as part of the tea party movement were actually better versed in science than those who didn’t, Kahan found. The findings met the conventional threshold of statistical significance, the professor said.
Kahan wrote that not only did the findings surprise him, they embarrassed him.
“I’ve got to confess, though, I found this result surprising. As I pushed the button to run the analysis on my computer, I fully expected I’d be shown a modest negative correlation between identifying with the Tea Party and science comprehension,” Kahan wrote.
“But then again, I don’t know a single person who identifies with the Tea Party,” he continued. “All my impressions come from watching cable tv — & I don’t watch Fox News very often — and reading the ‘paper’ (New York Times daily, plus a variety of politics-focused internet sites like Huffington Post & Politico). I’m a little embarrassed, but mainly I’m just glad that I no longer hold this particular mistaken view.”
The following article says what many are thinking. I am not quit there yet. I am trusting the Living God to deliver and heal the second country He formed for Himself and the Kingdom, the United States of America. Fashioned from scripture and birth in prayer, this once great nation thrived because it’s maker was, and is, God the Father, through our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ, by the power of Hos Holy Spirit.
I understand this person’s anger, frustration and angst. Because so many agree with such thinking, the civil war we’ve been watching grow in numbers hourly. Jesus is our peace. He can heal and restore what He created. However, we also must use wisdom in all this. We have the 2014 Mid Term Elections coming up. Based on all we are experiencing, and the challenge President Obama issued today, (“Go out and win an election”), this election cycle is indeed the most important election of our history. We know that election shenanigans will be done. That means we must work harder than ever to get the Christian Conservative out, as well as all other conservatives. We cannot let anyone stay home and not vote.
So please read this perspective with the proverbial “grain of salt”‘ Then begin NOW for next Novembers Mid Term Elections.
With the capitulation and betrayal of the American People by Congress Wednesday, for every Patriot, this is the last straw, or should be. I have heard enough of the drivel from cowardly men and women that we should work within the broken system, work by the rules of a rigged game, to extradite ourselves from the Tyranny that has us in its grips.
“Follow the law, elect good men to office, work within the system, don’t be a rock-thrower.”
Are you BLEEPING kidding me?
We are slowly being subjugated, bit by bit, little by little. Our leaders in Congress have failed us, nay betrayed us, for their own personal gain. They exempt themselves from laws that they force upon the rest of us, and today that betrayal has reared its ugly hydra-head once again in a monstrosity that lays over anything done so far.
The RINOs in Congress have voted to betray the American public once again.
WHEN IS IT ENOUGH PATRIOTS? WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET YOU OFF YOUR BACKSIDES AND RISE UP AGAINST TYRANNY? WHAT DOES IT TAKE, THE MURDER OF YOUR FAMILY ON YOUR FRONT LAWN?
A storm is coming people, and it is dark and terrible; in fact, it is knocking at your doorstep as you read this. These shutdowns, and now the capitulation by Congress are an exercise, warfare exercises; the Executive Arm and the Traitors in Congress, the Tyrant and his familiars, are flexing their muscle, testing the waters. Evil is preparing an assault, and everything that has happened, every affront to the People that this regime has instituted, is but a move on the chess board.
Civil War is upon you, whether you would have it or not. The time has come to realize that words and the election process will not avail to turn the tide that is rushing toward you. The time for idleness has ended. The time for action is upon us. Yes, I am openly calling for Civil War, for the Confederacy and the Red States to secede, peacefully if allowed, by force of arms if not. The time to act was long ago, the window to act is almost closed. Our country is being bankrupted, our morals and religion destroyed by all manner of perversions and horrors, our top military generals and leaders fired, our borders left wide open, deceptive legislation designed to subvert our freedoms and our way of life are being passed with little to no resistance, and our status as superpower almost gone. This is all by design, moves on the chess board.
Through the internet, we are all able to connect with one another, but this is a frail branch upon which to sit. Should the government shut down the root DNS servers, that is the end of communication as we know it. If the cell networks are shut down, and make no mistake they will be, and fuel delivery shut off, what will you do?
I say to you now, that open rebellion is now your only hope of restoring a once great Nation. Some police and sheriffs will be with you, some will not. The military will be divided, and some will stand with the people, and some will not.
Those in the cities need to abandon them, as when hostilities break out and martial law is declared, those there will be the first to die. Do you know how to hunt, to build a home from natural materials without power tools, do you know how to shoot, fight hand to hand, set a broken bone, or find your way through the woods and forests? Have you stored water, seeds, medicines, fashioned weapons? If not, you will also be the first to die.
This is not conspiratorial thinking, it is all right before your eyes. You have eyes, but you do not see; you have ears, but you do not hear.
Jesus said to the crowd:
“When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It’s going to rain,’ and it does. And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot,’ and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don’t know how to interpret the signs of the times?” – Luke 12:54-56
Civil war is upon us – what will you do? DECIDE, the time for talk is over.
PREPARE FOR BATTLE PATRIOTS – OR PREPARE TO DIE

Just in case you missed this “scolding” by our President, brought to through the eyes of the Washington Times. I’ve taken the liberty to interject my own commentary as we go along. Here we go.

Runtime: 01:14Federal Workers Head Back After 16-Day Shutdown
As the 16-day government shutdown ended Thursday, a stern President Obama blasted Republicans for deliberately trying to “break” the federal government and allowing their hatred of him to justify un-American tactics.
UN-American Tactics? You and your extreme Leftist buddies are the real UN-American’s here. YOU are the one that refused to discuss, debate or even have a conversation with the Republicans. YOU violated the tradition established by our founders who expected civility would continue through the generations because God established this nation. However, they had no idea that godless people would take over society and government while blaming dysfunction on everyone and everything other than themselves.
“If you don’t like a particular policy, or a particular president, then argue for your position,” Mr. Obama said in an address at the White House. “Go out there and win an election. Push to change it, but don’t break it. Don’t break what our predecessors spent over two centuries building. That’s not being faithful to what this country’s about.”
A) The Republicans TRIED to argue their position. YOU, and your lackey Reed, REFUSED TO LISTEN.
B) Win an election? Without your paid off voter base, you we would have won. Without your minions destroying the ballot box, we would have won. Without you manipulating the entire process for your favor, we would have won.
C) Push for change? After pushing against your immovable stony heart, and getting nowhere, the Republicans went to the airwaves, as you do every chance you get.
D) Don’t break it? Your intransigent stance made everything BREAK. YOU decided who got hurt AND HOW BAD. Since you’ve taken office, you have managed to break most of our government, economy, relationships in the world, our military, respect with our allies and respect for country and values. You are the CHIEF BREAKER!
E) Faithful to WHAT COUNTRY? An American Patriot YOU ARE NOT. How about YOU being faithful to THIS COUNTRY, OUR CONSTITUTION and BILL OF RIGHTS. How about you stop trying to RECREATE our America into your demented image?
Mr. Obama directed his language at Republican lawmakers just hours after he signed legislation to reopen the government through Jan. 15 and extend the nation’s borrowing authority until Feb. 7. The agreement ended, for now, a bitter battle with the GOP that began as a protest over Obamacare.
“Let’s work together to make government work better, instead of treating it like an enemy or purposely making it work worse,” Mr. Obama said. “That’s not what the founders of this nation envisioned when they gave us the gift of of self-government. We are Americans first. That’s why disagreement cannot mean dysfunction. It can’t degenerate into hatred.”
For every Democrat, Liberal, Extreme Liberal, Socialist and Communist disagreement is reported by you as “refusing to negotiate” or “debate”. Unless you opposition agrees with everything you say and everything you want, than you demonize your opposition as:
The president said Americans are “completely fed up with Washington,” but said the nation would bounce back.
Based on most polls, Americans have woke up to the fact that you and yours are the reasons they are fed up.
“These last few weeks have inflicted completely unnecessary damage on our economy,” Mr. Obama said. “The American people’s frustration with what goes on in this town has never been higher. How business is done in this town has to change.”
Let’s see. As I remember you are the one to campaigned on CHANGE. Now that the American people have experienced the change you had in mind, THEY WANT ANOTHER CHANGE – GET YOU AND YOURS OUT OF THE PEOPLES HOUSE.
Mr. Obama urged Congress to work on a “balanced” budget as a House-Senate conference committee began its work Thursday.
“The issue is not growth vs. fiscal responsibility,” he said. “We need both. And remember, the deficit is getting smaller, not bigger.”
NOT TRUE MR. PRESIDENT. You and yours have only reduced the RATE OF INCREASE of some mythical FUTURE SPENDING. SMOKE AND MIRRORS ARE NOT REAL DEFICIT REDUCTION.
Virtually seething with frustration at times, the president said there were “no winners” in the stalemate.
“Now that the government has reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do,” he said. “That’s grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul. That’s why we’re here. That should be our focus.”
If in fact that is what you want to do, then you have just recited the desires of all Tea Party members and true conservatives in Congress and the Senate. So far, you have managed to do the opposite of what you claim”we all need to focus on”, of course insinuating that the Republicans are not participating in such focus.
Turning to his legislative priorities, Mr. Obama said lawmakers also should work to “finish the job of fixing our broken immigration system.” The Senate has approved comprehensive immigration reform, but the Republican-led House has not.
“A majority of Americans think this is the right thing to do, and it’s sitting there, waiting for the House to pass it,” Mr. Obama said. “This can and should get done by the end of this year.”
EXTREME LEFTIST SPEAK = Let us let more people in here illegally so we can give them American Tax Payers money so they will be faithful Socialist Democrat Voters.
He also urged Congress to complete a farm bill by the end of the year.
Mr. Obama said these tasks can be completed “if our focus is on the American people.”
