Contractor: Easy to find Lerner’s ‘lost’ emails


lois-lerner

Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner

WASHINGTON – The CEO of a major a federal contractor, which has several Trigger the Votecontracts with the Treasury Department, says it should be relatively easy for IRS contractors to retrieve the “lost” emails of Lois Lerner, the IRS official at the center of the tea party-targeting scandal.

Ron Gula is CEO and chief technical officer of Tenable Network Security, an information technology services company nestled in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., that has major contracts with many federal agencies, including the Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service and United States Mint.

“It is very unlikely that the emails in question are not stored on a backup machine someplace else,” Gula told WND.

Gula also said questions about the lost emails from Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa, R-Calif., for Monday evening’s

hearing are spot on.

Obamas IRS GestapoOver the weekend, Issa called IRS Commissioner John Koskinen to testify Monday evening about the IRS’ “email systems, data retention policies, and document production processes.”

“Because the IRS has refused to provide basic information about these matters to the committee in advance of the hearing, and in the interest of promoting a frank and thorough discussion at the hearing, I ask that you provide answers to the factual questions posed below,” Issa said in a letter to Koskinen.

In his letter, Issa asked Koskinen to provide further details about the “failure of the hard drive,” identify employees involved in examining the hard drive, explain steps taken by the IRS to recover the information and give dates of those attempts. He also asked for the identities of all IRS employees who had any role or responsibility in maintaining or servicing IRS email servers since 2009 and for other details on the IRS archival systems.

After reviewing the letter, Gula said, “Many of the questions outlined for [Monday’s] session are on the right track.” He said the emails in question could also be stored on any number of laptops and systems such as spam filters, which process email throughout the IRS.

Gula noted that because IRS contractors have the same access as employees to email systems, there shouldn’t be any issue retrieving lost data.

“In my experience, contractors who were authorized to do work for organizations like the IRS have full access to email and corporate resources,” he said.

To make email work for an organization the size of the IRS, Gula said, “there must be a great deal of redundancy and separate systems to deliver email reliably.”

WND found that several large corporations hold the IRS’ Total Information Processing Services, or TIPSS-4, contract to handle the IRS’ email servers and provide staff to work, in many cases, on site at IRS offices.

Those companies include: Accenture, Unisys, AT&T Government Solutions, Avaya Government Solutions, Booz Allen Hamilton, CGI Federal, Computer Sciences Corp., Deloitte Consulting, General Dynamics, HP Enterprises, IBM, Leidos, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman Systems and Pragmatics.

Issa called an archivist from the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration and invited White House counsel Jennifer O’Connell to testify Monday in a continuation of the investigation.

ISIS threatens to storm Jordan with 15,000 fighters


Trigger the VoteTEL AVIV – Members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria are claiming on jihadist websites that the group is preparing an operation in which more than 15,000 of its militants will storm into Jordan, WND has found.

The claims were made on Arabic jihadist websites in which the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, is known to be active.

While it was unclear whether or not the ISIS could fulfill its threat to storm Jordan, the al-Qaida-inspired group on Sunday reportedly seized control of Iraq’s main border crossing with Jordan.

Alongside its capture of the Turabil border crossing, three more towns in Iraq’s western Anbar province fell to ISIS, putting the jihadist group within reach of Jordan.

According to informed Middle Eastern security officials, Jordan has been holding emergency meetings since Sunday to discuss a possible

military response, while the Jordanian air force was placed on high alert.

ISIS previously posted a video on YouTube threatening to move on Jordan and “slaughter” King Abdullah, whom they view as an enemy of Islam.

Israel, meanwhile, is watching ISIS developments in neighboring Jordan particularly closely amid fears the violence could ultimately spill over to the Jewish state’s own borders.

Sunday, the Israel Air Force hit nine Syrian military targets in retaliation for a cross-border missile attack that killed a 13-year-old Israeli boy. The Israel Defense Forces said its jets and artillery missiles targeted Syrian command posts and firing positions.

The Syrian missile that struck inside Israel may have been intended for insurgents fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, including at sites near Israel on the Syrian side of the border.

Nevertheless, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said the Jewish state held Assad’s government responsible for Sunday’s missile attack.

“We see the regime of Bashar Assad and the Syrian military as responsible for what occurs in the territory under their control, and we will respond aggressively and harshly against any provocation and violation of our sovereignty,” stated Ya’alon.

Egypt “Humiliates” John Kerry By Sentencing Al Jazeera Journalists To Prison Day After He Plead With Sisi To Let Them Go…

Lurch is a train wreck.

Trigger the Vote

Via Guardian:

Egypt’s military-dominated government has delivered a humiliating, public slap in the face to John Kerry, the US secretary of state, by sentencing three al-Jazeera journalists to long prison terms only hours after Kerry personally expressed his deep concern about the case in high-level meetings in Cairo. The snub represents a disastrous beginning to Kerry’s already fraught Middle East tour, which took him to Baghdad on Monday for crisis talks about the Islamist extremist uprising.

The verdict, by a court responsive to government wishes, will also be seen as a deliberate, crude signal to President Barack

Who is better offObama, who criticised Egypt’s deteriorating human rights record after the former general, Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, seized power in a coup last year. Sisi has since had himself voted president. His elected predecessor, Mohammed Morsi, and thousands of his Muslim Brotherhood supporters remain in jail while hundreds of others have been killed.

In what US officials said were “candid” talks with Sisi, Kerry “emphasised our strong support for upholding the universal rights and freedoms of all Egyptians, including freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and association”. He noted a number of promises by Egyptian leaders “are yet to be fulfilled”, but added that “the United States remains deeply committed to seeing Egypt succeed”.

The hollowness of all this careful diplomatic language was exposed for all to see by the court’s verdict, which diplomats and observers said was reached without the complication of supporting evidence. It seems clear now that Kerry was wasting his breath; the sentences were pre-determined, intended as a stark warning to Egyptian and foreign media and as a symbol of the regime’s determination to demonstrate its independence of Washington.

This is ironic given that, before the talks, the US had made available most of the $575m (£328m) in military aid frozen by Congress after the coup against Morsi. Kerry offered more blandishments in the form of 10 Apache attack helicopters, which he said would be supplied to Egypt “very soon”. This is exactly the sort of deadly air power that Iraq’s government has pleaded for but has so far been denied by Obama.

Kerry must now be asking himself whether it was entirely sensible to offer such diplomatic, financial and military support to Sisi unconditionally before their meeting and before the court announced its verdict. This is not the way hard-headed, worldly-wise American secretaries of state, such as Henry Kissinger, George Shultz and James Baker, would have gone about it. All old Middle East hands, they would surely have driven a tougher bargain. On the other hand, they would all probably have placed America’s and Israel’s strategic interest in a strong, stable pro-western Egypt above human rights issues. Perhaps this is what Kerry has done, too.

Obama’s Doctrine of Destruction of America as we know it & the March to a New World Order

he can to destroy the country that is. This President has gone out of his way to make sure not only just a few of his Socialist policies ruin us, but that his whole time in office is dedicated to the destruction of the United States as we know it.

From supplying terrorist organizations such as Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and countless other Islamic Jihadists in N. Africa, the Mid-East, Indonesia, and Europe with billions of dollars in weapons, billions in financial aid, and actual military help, to purposely busing and flying in hundreds of thousand illegal aliens per day via Homeland Security.

Cloward Pevin with explanationThis President expects his agenda of anti-Americanism to continue with breaking our economy and with the EPA’s anti CO2 regulations, which are based on guess work from UN climate organizations and not concrete scientific evidence.

We also have the countless scandals which amount to crimes perpetrated by this President. From Benghazi to the IRS situation, where Conservatives are targeted by the IRS for their voices of opposition to the Administration, we now have a Socialist Dictator in office who has declared war on any American who stands with the Constitution as the rule of law.

We now have the dirtiest most corrupt President ever to hold office, making Richard M. Nixon look like the most honest President we ever had, when comparing the two. At least Nixon loved America; Obama hates the very core of American values of which make us great.

A President, who loves his country, would not aid enemies who have only our destruction in mind. Yet, Obama has made his whole foreign policy about helping terrorist organizations gain control of countries.

Last year, in Obama’s quest to aid Al Qaeda and other terrorist factions fighting in Syria by wanting to bomb the Assad regime, we now see these same Islamic factions taking over Iraq via all the aid in arms, money, and military training we did supply them. It stands to reason that Obama does not want to help the Iraq government since his vision was to see Islamists take power across the Mid-East in the first place.

ConfusedObama and John Kerry have done everything possible to damage beyond recognition the friendship the US has had with key allies such as Israel and Russia. Today, we stand in opposition to Israel because of Obama’s agenda to transform the Mid-East into a region completely run by terrorist organizations, labeling Israel as an oppressive state and doing everything possible short of cutting ties with them altogether.

We now live in a Cold War atmosphere with Russia over events in Ukraine, which were stoked by our own CIA in the first place.

The Benghazi cover up is clear to anyone who has been following US foreign policy. This Administration has to keep these events swept under the rug since it was the very terrorist organizations the Obama Administration is supporting who are responsible for killing Americans on that day.

Because of the massive opposition to the Obama Administration’s desire to grant Amnesty to millions of Illegal Aliens, the President has given orders for all Border Patrol agents to stand down and has Homeland Security busing and flying hundreds of thousands of Illegals into the US daily from Central America with the help of the drug cartels.

The recent Federal land grab in New Mexico is also part of the Obama strategy in creating a flood of illegal immigrants.

So, now, instead of having hundreds cross our southern border each day, we now have thousands getting a free ride here daily.

Obama's IRS GestapoAside from all of this, we are supposed to believe the IRS lost some two years of Lois Learner’s E-Mails. In light of the massive domestic spying by the NSA, CIA, and other clandestine organizations on American citizens, we know this isn’t a problem since these organizations do have these E-Mails.

US Muslim Calls for Barack Obama and his Family to be Beheaded

Prime Minister David Cameron and Home Secretary Theresa May, tweeting, “I think when we establish khilafah (a Muslim state), a battalion of mujahadeen shud head to UK and capture davidcameron & theresamay n behead them both.” On Sunday, a US Muslim Jihadist targeted Barack Obama and his family, calling for their beheading.

Timothy DeTillio tweeted, “Obama your days are numbered. You have nowhere to hide. Your family is first on our list. We will find you and remove your filthy heads!!”

 obama beheaded

He had previously tweeted out, “Soon Dawlat-al Islamiya fi’l ‘iraq wa’sh-sham will encompass the entire world.”

ConfusedKeep in mind that in both the Obama administration, as well as the Cameron government, they have deceitfully presented Islam as a “religion of peace,” not wanting to offend anyone, but Islam is having none of it. They want a caliphate. They want the guns, the weapons and the bombs, and now they are more vocal than ever.

According to Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch:

This clown’s Twitter account is still active. Twitter only seems interested in closing the accounts of those who oppose jihad terror. But anyway, here again we see a convert to Islam turn against his nation and people, and cheer on their subjugation. Which mosques in the U.S. are teaching against the idea that Islamic law should encompass the world? Why, none of them. None at all.

However, a quick search of his Twitter handle, at the time of this writing, resulted in a page declaring “Account Suspended.”

DeTillio apparently lives in Vermont and he continued to blast America before his account suspension tweeting, “Dawlah has defeated all comers. Especially those arrogant Ameriki’s.”

“The West and their lackeys need to come to the realization that khilafah is here to stay and bring about law and order,” he added.

DeTillio also tweeted, “desperately need to make hijrah but I need help and guidance.”

 obama beheaded

According to Islam, dawlah means, “country or state” and khilafah is another form of the word caliphate, which is the Islamic state, headed by Muslims.

Who is better offThe irony in all of this is, as I’ve pointed out before, that Barack Obama’s own DHS advisor Mohamed Elibiary has said the US is an Islamic country with an Islamic compliant Constitution and that the best antidote to terrorism is Islam. The only way he could reference that is if he believes Obama is a Muslim. Now, couple that with how things work in the Middle East. Muslims are not only at war with Christians and Jews and Buddhists, but they are at war with each other. Thus, as our friend and fellow contributor David Woods has pointed out, since Obama is actively involved in overseeing the troops in Muslim lands, he has made himself a target, by those that oppose him.

Personally, though I believe Barack Obama is guilty of treason and should be tried and if found guilty executed, I do not believe such threats as these being made are anything but lawless animals spewing bile, who need to also be tried and then executed if found guilty and eliminated from the world. DeTillio is not after bringing “about law and order.” He’s about establishing the demonic, political, quasi-religious caliphate of Islam; nothing more, nothing less.

I wonder if targeting Mecca and Medina (two of the most holy cities in Islam) with nukes and issuing a demand that if jihad doesn’t immediately stop, we will utterly destroy it would work (h/t Tom Wise). Probably not, but we should seriously give it a try.

Sudan Court Will Free Meriam Ibrahim, Sentenced to Death for Her Christian Faith

by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 6/23/14 10:08 AM

http://www.lifenews.com/2014/06/23/sudan-court-will-free-meriam-ibrahim-sentenced-to-death-for-her-christian-faith/

Reports today indicate the Sudan court has reversed itself and will free Meriam Ibraham, the pregnant Christian woman jailed and sentenced to be flogged and hanged for her Christian faith. Meriam was later forced to give birth in chains in a Sudanese prison as she awaited a death sentence ad brutal flogging by Muslim officials.

“The appeal court ordered the release of Mariam Yahya [Ibrahim] and the cancellation of the [previous] court ruling,” Sudan’s SUNA news agency said on Monday.

Although reports a couple of weeks ago suggested Meriam would be freed, they turned out to be false. Thesudan4se reports appear more credible and multiple news agencies, including Bloomberg News and the Associated Press are confirming Meriam’s impending release from prison.

As Bloomberg reports:

A Sudanese appeal court ordered the release of Meriam Yehia Ibrahim and canceled the death sentence of the mother who refused to recant her Christian faith, the state-run news agency, Suna, said in a text message.

Sudan’s government said it wouldn’t interfere in the decisions of the judiciary.

Ibrahim on May 27 gave birth to a girl whom she’s caring for in prison along with her 20-month-old son. Under Sudanese law, a pregnant woman can’t be executed until she gives birth and raises the child for two years, according to Amnesty.

meriam17Ibrahim’s legal team filed an appeal on May 22, saying the verdict contradicts the country’s 2005 constitution, which guarantees freedom of religion as well as international rights agreements to which Sudan is a signatory.

Ibrahim’s husband, Daniel Wani, has said she was raised as Christian by her Ethiopian mother after her Sudanese Muslim father left when she was six years old.

She was arrested in August after men who said they were from her father’s side of the family reportedly accused her of adultery because of her marriage to a Christian man, Amnesty said.

An apostasy charge was added when she said she was never a Muslim, contradicting the court which considered her as having the same faith as her father. Ibrahim’s marriage was annulled and she was sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery in accordance with Sudan’s interpretation of Islamic law.

Ibrahikm’s lawyer, Elshareef Mohammed, told the Guardian he heard the release announced on Sudanese radio but had no confirmation. He was on his way to the prison, where he was to meet Ibrahim’s husband Daniel Wani, a U.S. citizen.

“I’m going to check if this is true,” Mohammed said.

In an email to LifeNews, Senator Roy Blunt celebrated the news that Ibrahim will no longer face the death sentence and will be freed from captivity in Sudan.

“I am very pleased that the Sudanese court has reportedly cancelled Meriam Ibrahim’s death sentence and ordered her release. Icontinue to urge U.S. officials to work quickly and use all resources available to immediately provide Meriam and her family with safe haven in the United States,” said Blunt.

In an effort to secure Ibrahim’s release, Blunt worked with U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (N.H.) to send a letter on May 16, 2014, urging Secretary of the U.S. Department of State John Kerry to intervene on Ibrahim’s behalf. Blunt and Ayotte also sent a follow-up letter to Kerry and Jeh Johnson, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), on May 21, 2014.

Congressman Chris Smith, chairman of the House Africa and global human rights subcommittee, commented on the release in an email to LifeNews.

“This is a huge first step,” said Smith, who had met with the Sudanese Ambassador to the United States Friday to discuss the Miriam Ibrahim case, after which he canceled a congressional hearing on the case set for tomorrow. “But the second step is that Ms. Ibrahim and her husband and their children be on a plane and heading to the United States.”

Leading pro-life groups rallied in the United States to put pressure on the Obama administration to do more to help Meriam’s release. They held a large rally outside the White House that he and pro-life groups led.

Ibrahim, 26, joined the Catholic Church shortly before she married U.S. citizen Daniel Bicensio Wani in December 2011. Because of that, Catholic Church officials were also speaking up on her behalf.

The Archdiocese of Khartoum has urged the judiciary in Sudan to review her case and overturn the death sentence.

“There are many people trying to persuade Meriam to renounce Christianity in order to be freed, but she is refusing. Some people are pleading with her husband to convince her to abandon Christian faith in order to save her life, but to no avail,” the archdiocese said.

“The Catholic Church — Archdiocese of Khartoum — expresses deep regret over the way the case is being handled in the court,” with disregard of “Meriam’s moral and religious beliefs,” it said.

“We are pleading with the judiciary and other concerned authorities to review the case … and to bring it to a reasonable end,” it said.

Ibrahim was not sentenced to die for her Christian faith for two years, until such a time as her newborn baby girl Maya is weaned, but she could have been flogged within days if her appeal of her death sentence was thrown out. LifeNews recently covered the terrible nature of the flogging she would have had to endure and how it would have literally take her skin off of her body

IRS contracted with email archiving company in 2005


http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/06/irs_contracted_with_email_archiving_company_in_2005.html

By Thomas Lifson

Is that a smoking gun  I smell?  It turns out the IRS contracted with a company that provides email backup services starting in 2005.  This first came to light in the Twitter feed of moregenr, who noticed that the IRS appears on the client list of email  archiving service provider Sonasoft.
This was was picked up by Peter Suderman of Reason, who writes:

The IRS had a contract with email backup service vendor Sonasoft starting in 2005,according to FedSpending.org, which lists the contract as being for “automatic data processing services.” Sonasoft’s motto is “email archiving done right,” and the companylists the IRS as a customer.

In 2009, Sonasoft even sent out a Tweet advertising its work for the IRS. 

The exact details of the service that Sonasoft provided to the IRS aren’t clear. But the company advertises its email archiving solution as “ideal for small and medium businesses, government agencies, school districts, nonprofit organizations using Microsoft’s Exchange Server.” And a document posted on its website describing its services says that its system “archives all email content and so reduces the risk of non-compliance with legal, regulatory and other obligations to preserve critical business content.”

Jindal spoke at the annual conference hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, a group led by longtime Christian activist Ralph Reed. Organizers said more than 1,000 evangelical leaders attended the three-day gathering. Republican officials across the political spectrum concede that evangelical voters continue to play a critical role in GOP politics.

“I can sense right now a rebellion brewing amongst these United States,” Jindal said, “where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C., to preserve the American Dream for our children and grandchildren.”War on Christians

The governor said there was a “silent war” on religious liberty being fought in the U.S. — a country that he said was built on that liberty.

“I am tired of the left. They say they’re for tolerance, they say they respect diversity. The reality is this: They respect everybody unless you happen to disagree with them,” he said. “The left is trying to silence us and I’m tired of it, I won’t take it anymore.”

Earlier this week, Jindal signed an executive order to block the use of tests tied to Common Core education standards in his state, a position favored by tea party supporters and conservatives. He said he would continue to fight against the administration’s attempts to implement Common Core.

“The federal government has no role, no right and no place dictating standards in our local schools across these 50 states of the United States of America,” Jindal said.

Jindal used humor in criticizing the Obama administration on several fronts, referencing the Bergdahl prisoner exchange and the deadly attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

“Are we witnessing right now the most radically, extremely liberal, ideological president of our entire lifetime right here in the United States of America, or are we witnessing the most incompetent president of the United States of America in the history of our lifetimes? You know, it is a difficult question,” he said. “I’ve thought long and hard about it. Here’s the only answer I’ve come up with, and I’m going to quote Secretary Clinton: ‘What difference does it make?'”

The conference featured most of the well-known Republicans considering a 2016 presidential run, including Gov. Chris Christie, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul. Jindal is expected to announce after the November midterm elections whether or not he will launch a presidential bid.

Hillary presses the self-destruct button again over money


http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/06/hillary_presses_the_selfdestruct_button_again_over_money.html

By Thomas Lifson

Is Hillary to blameHillary Clinton’s weird inferiority complex about money is doing in her potential presidential campaign. Only a couple of weeks ago she lamented Trigger the Vote being “dead broke” when leaving the White House, evoking gales of laughter and waves of scorn over the self-pity displayed. In a nation with scores of millions of people actually dead broke, with a net worth at or below zero, the spectacle of a woman set to collect millions of dollars in speaking fees and publisher’s advances bemoaning her financial plight bespeaks a bizarre detachment from the lives of ordinary people.
Now, she’s done it again. In an interview with the Guardian, as friendly a publication as one could imagine, she’s gone and stuck her foot in her mouth again.
She has claimed that despite the reported hundred million dollars she and her husband have raked in since the time since they were “dead broke,” they are not “truly well off.” 

…with her huge personal wealth, how could Clinton possibly hope to be credible on this issue when people see her as part of the problem, not its solution?

“But they don’t see me as part of the problem,” she protests, “because we pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off, not to name names; and we’ve done it through dint of hard work,” she says, letting off another burst of laughter. If past form is any guide, she must be finding my question painful.

For 99.9% percent of the public, receiving a hundred million bucks over the course of 14 years, even if you pay half of it in income taxes, makes one “truly well off.”

Hillary’s money problem is twofold:

First, her childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood were financially pressed. Her father, Hugh Rodham, sold draperies and was not terribly successful at it. The professional peak of his career was getting the contract to install draperies at an airline lounge at O’Hare Airport.  

It must have been painful for her to attend Wellesley College, dowdy with buck teeth, an unfashionable Midwesterner surrounded by prettier and much richer girls, languishing behind coke bottle glasses and secretly fuming that she was smarter and more worthy than they.

Hillary ClintonEgo blows like this fade slowly, if at all. It is the kind of pain that sometimes drives ambition. And clearly Hillary has been ambitious, though for much of her adulthood channeling that ambition through her husband. It was Bill who received the glory of the presidency while she grumbled about not choosing to “stay home and bake cookies” in an infamous put-down of women whose choices were different than hers. Her obvious desire to be president demonstrates that even without cookie-baking, a degree of dissatisfaction with her place in life still rankles.

Second, as she and her husband climbed the ladder of social status, and achieved the  heights  acquired through elective office, they started associating with really, really rich people. So rich that, in fact, no matter how much money she and Bill earned, they were still among the less well-off members of their social set.  Whereas she knows many people with their own private jets, she and Bill cannot afford one. You might think that this would not matter, since she can readily borrow one from a friend, or require the dispatch of one as a condition of speaking at some function. But once you are in a social set where that is a dividing line, it becomes a painful mark of inferiority to have to depend on the kindness others for what has become an essential convenience. If you add on the scars of a childhood and adolescence where she felt humiliated by her parents’ middle class status, this form of comparative deprivation becomes a burden, and phrases like “truly well off” just tumble out in unguarded moments.

It is clear that Mrs. Clinton’s greatest enemy is her subconscious mind, full of resentments and arrogance. When she is on guard, as in her Fox News interview, these mistakes don’t happen. But when she is in friendly territory, they just slip out.

Has there ever been a presidential campaign without an unguarded moment? If she does indeed run for president, Hillary had better plan on never relaxing and letting the real Hillary out. Ever.

Dan.BonginoIn the face of the plethora of Obama scandals and failing policies, both domestically and abroad, former Secret Service agent and now Trigger the Votecongressional candidate, Dan Bongino, says that the big government model is collapsing before our very eyes…literally. 
Bongino, who’s seeking Maryland’s 6th Congressional District seat, wrote on his Facebook page and asked if the far left will accept the failing results of big government, or continue to blindly follow down its path of destruction:

We are watching, in real time, the collapse of the big-government model on which the house of liberalism has been built. The only question remaining is, when will those on the far left accept the results, rather than the intentions of the big government model?

President Obama ran on the idea that a big government can solve big problems, yet this model has not only not solved any of our big problems, but it has created new ones, while aggravating old ones created by prior administrations.

Bongino provided a partial summary of the acts of tyranny, scandals, and policy failures of the Obama regime and big government, while

chastising on Democrats focusing on non-issues like the renaming of an NFL football franchise, the Washington Redskins:

Think about where we find ourselves.

  • We are in the midst of a border crisis on our southern border,
  • a civil war in Iraq,
  • an aggressive expansion of Russian territory,
  • a historically unpopular healthcare initiative,
  • record numbers of Americans both outside of our workforce and receiving disability payments from the government,
  • a crisis where our own IRS admits to targeting Americans, then pleads the 5th, then “loses” only the emails of the suspects involved, destroys their hard-drives and tells us nothing is wrong.
  • And where is our President on these issues?
    • He is issuing public statements on how he disagrees with the name of an NFL team. Calling this leadership is either willfully misleading or un-willfully blind.

Bongino scolds the Left for bashing George W. Bush, a big government Republican, for “starting the house fire,” while gleefully accepting Obama’s “pouring gasoline on it.”

Bongino, a Republican preparing for the June 24 primary date in Maryland, encouraged conservatives to “Stand up, fight back, and cede more ground.”

The Diversity of the Tea Party Standing Together in Mississippi


http://www.tpnn.com/2014/06/21/the-diversity-of-the-tea-party-standing-together-in-mississippi/

June 21, 2014 By

What do you call a Jew, a Black person and a woman in Mississippi? 

Simple. A Tea Party Rally. But wait, I thought the Tea Party was only made of white sexist males, especially in a Southern State?

This is exactly the lie the left and those in the lamestream media want to continue to paint of the Tea Party movement and yet like everything else they try and spin, it could not be farther from the truth. 

Today, the Tea Party Express ‘Elect Chris McDaniel’ bus tour rolls into both Tupelo and Pearl, Mississippi for two separate rallies on Day 2 of the tour. The lineup of speakers truly exhibits the diversity of the movement. Unlike most conventions of the left, most Tea Party events are anything but cookie cutter.

“The makeup of the speakers traveling with the Tea Party Express this weekend exhibits the best in American culture. Liberals speak on how they represent America, but quickly dismiss the conservative side when the show the same collaboration,” says Wayne Dupree a conservative political commentator and one of the speakers on the tour. 

Stereotypes exist on both sides of the aisle, however those within the Tea Party respect and appreciate the cultural differences within our movement and unlike those on the left who simply glorify the differences superficially, those chosen by the Tea Party are given the spotlight not based on their DNA but rather because of their merits. That is truly what the concept of the American dream should be.

“The concepts of fiscal responsibility and limited government should be attractive to all Americans, not just those in a particular race, gender or religion,” says Andy Surabian, Political Director for The Tea Party Express.

Tune in live today at 11:30AM Central time for the broadcast of the rally in Tupelo, MS (Tupelo City Hall; 71 East Troy St., Tupelo, MS) or for the second rally in Pearl, MS at 6:00PM Central time (City Hall; 2420 Old Brandon Rd., Pearl, MS) 

Today’s lineup includes the same group from Day 1 featuring Talk Radio Host Lars Larson, Dallas Tea Party Board Member Katrina Pierson, Investigative reporter Charles Johnson, Tea Party Express’s Donlyn Turnball, music provided by Rivoli Review with the addition of former Libertarian President nominee Wayne Allen Root. I am honored to be speaking as well alongside these patriots who fight in the battle daily for a constitutionally limited government and freedom in America. Join us. Your voice and support make a difference.

Government Bans Creationism in Schools


http://lastresistance.com/6219/government-bans-creationism-schools/#pOZS2XT4pAXipbd4.99

Posted By on Jun 23, 2014

evolutionThe United Kingdom, our closest ally and oldest friend, is continuing to move towards Trigger the Votea godless, secular society. They are considering forcing churches to perform gay marriages, they are arresting Christians for speaking against sin, and now they have banned talk of intelligent design in their schools. Soon there will be nothing left to remind us that Britain was once leader of the Christian world. What has happened to the nation that once sent more Christian missionaries out to the world than any other? Can we really call a godless United Kingdom our friend?

————————————————————–

Schools in the United Kingdom are banned from teaching creationism following a clarification of regulations released by the UK government

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

last week.

The new documents make plain that any school receiving public funds, which includes many church-run schools, will violate the Funding Agreement with the government if it teaches creationism as a scientifically valid alternative to the theory of evolution. In addition, schools are required to teach evolution as the current scientific consensus regarding the origin of Earth’s many species.

Creationism Debate“The parties further recognize that the requirement on every academy and free school to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, in any case prevents the teaching of creationism as evidence based theory in any academy or free school,” the government’s new documents say.

Elsewhere, creationism is defined as “any doctrine or theory which holds that natural biological processes cannot account for the history, diversity, and complexity of life on earth and therefore rejects the scientific theory of evolution.” Such theories, the agreements say, are roundly rejected by today’s scientists.

“It does not accord with the scientific consensus or the very large body of established scientific evidence; nor Good people who don't standdoes it accurately and consistently employ the scientific method, and as such it should not be presented to pupils at the Academy as a scientific theory,” the government declares.

Creationism may be brought up when studying religion, but instructors may never present it as a scientific alternative to evolution.

2012 poll by AngusReid found that only 17 percent of Britons believed humans were created by God in their original form within the last 10,000 years, while 69 percent believe humans arose through millions of years of evolution. The same poll found that only 30 percent of Americans believe in Darwinian evolution while 51 percent believe humans were created in the last 10,000 years.

The announcement is a win for the British Humanist Association, which has been running a “Teach Evolution, Not Creationism” campaign since 2011.

“We believe that this means that the objectives of the campaign are largely met. We congratulate the Government on its robust stance on this issue,” the organization’s head of public affairs Pavan Dhaliwal said in a statement.

The UK’s decisive prohibition is in stark contrast to the United States. While the Supreme Court has abolished bans on teaching evolution as well as laws requiring that creationism be taught alongside evolution, private schools have extensive leeway in teaching science and many state legislatures have battles over laws affording varying degrees of protection to public school teachers who wish to question evolution.

As recently as this March, Oklahoma’s House advanced a bill by a wide margin that if enacted would provide protections for science teachers to criticize Darwinian theory.

Abolish the IRS – It’s Out of Control and Can’t Be Fixed


Obamas IRS GestapoThere is no reforming the IRS—it has moved way past that point. It must be ditched, once and for all. Trigger the Vote

Here is one of the most powerful federal agencies that, at best, fails to answer the simplest questions about the tax code and at worst, is used to harass citizens to fix elections for the incumbent party in office.

The IRS is routinely used by the powerful against opponents. It has happened before and it will happen again. This time, manipulating the last election by silencing political critics and turning their lives inside out—made possible by a closed, stacked system where the citizen is legally presumed guilty.

They have not only harassed applicants trying to organize citizen groups but have audited the founders of and donors to those groups. They have illegally shared protected taxpayer records with liberal groups who have used that information to attack those opposed to their candidates. It’s only a half step above “justice” in any banana Republic.

Obey MAThey have abused citizens, ignored the Rule of Law and have done it all with impunity because they are beyond the reach of the law–as long as chief Chicago-style fixer and thug, Attorney General Eric Holder remains their protector. Now, in the most preposterous claim yet, the IRS says that the hard drives and server records of all of Lois Lerner’s e-mails to and from the White House and Congressional Democrats were destroyed! Try that at your next audit.

The painfully obvious conclusion is that at the highest levels of government the law is considered something that must only be obeyed by the “little people”. Indeed, the law can be ignored by the powerful but is useful to punish the chumps and to enable otherwise illegal government actions.

Take ObamaCare. The law is unambiguously clear-cut that ObamaCare subsidies can only be awarded and penalties levied in states that establish healthcare exchanges. Under the law, that should mean that ObamaCare is a dead letter in 36 states. But Obama has already shown that in his Presidency any “inconvenient” law can be ignored. Now he has applied that same principle to his own “signature” legislation—ObamaCare.

When most states elected not to establish exchanges the IRS wrote new regulations giving themselves the A nation is strongpower to penalize employers and individuals in those states and to redistribute tax money as ObamaCare subsidies. In essence, the IRS decided on its own that it could re-write tax law. That’s frightening because it means that this powerful agency has moved beyond the reach of Congress or the Rule of Law itself. Bend a knee.

Despite all the wailing and gnashing of teeth asking, “how could this happen here?” little will actually be done. Prosecutions will not occur under Eric Holder, the President will continue to say he is deeply concerned with one breath and claim there is not a “smidgen of corruption” with the next. Those in the White House and in Congress who undoubtedly directed the IRS to harass citizens will not come close to actual justice.

Here is the real answer:

  1. Repeal the 16th Amendment that made the income tax Constitutional and then abolish the IRS.

  2. Adopt, instead, a national sales tax, paid by every citizen at the cash register. The FairTax at www.FairTax.org is one, the SimpleTax at www.SimpleTax.org is another.

  3. Take away the power of this corrupted and power mad agency to ever again distort elections, harass citizens or take it upon itself to unilaterally write tax law.

  4. Ask each citizen, including the poor, to pay a little without legislated favors, exceptions, advanced depreciation schedules or other corrupting tax code elements that have, after all, been bought and sold in Washington , D.C.

The IRS is more than a corrupt and powerful federal agency beyond the reach of the law—the income tax it enforces is, itself, the fuel that feeds a government without bounds. End it.

Exodus to the Obama Promised Land


central2Do you blame hundreds of thousands of people who are on their way from Central and Trigger the VoteSouth America to the land of the free? I don’t – it’s great here in America.

Anyone who still thinks this is some sort of aberration or coincidence is naive at best and a smiling and lying Luis Gutierrez at worst.

The word is out: Run, walk, or hop a train for the border and the great and powerful Barack Obama is going to let you in without a cover charge or two-drink minimum. You will soon be an American and folks – that ain’t bad.

If I was stuck in some rat-hole in Guatemala and heard the Wizard of Oz took over the City on the Hill and was handing out free green cards – I’d do everything I could to get my kids there. And so would you, friendo – so do me a favor and quit bitching about these refugees or whatever they’re classifying them as and put the blame where it belongs: King VitaBama.

Immigration-PiperYou know, and I know and Luis Gutierrez knows this whole thing was orchestrated from the get-go and is part of the bigger plan to give Republicans – and Congress as a whole – cover to pass an Amnesty bill.

Let me say that again: You are watching Amnesty. Listen to Uncle Rodney: A-M-N-E-S-T-Y.

boehner-mccarthyDon’t believe me? Just wait a couple weeks after Kevin McCarthy has settled into Cantor’s still warm Majority Leader chair and start yapping about a “solution to helping these children…” It’s the law, you know – helping children who show up at the border. And who cares who’s with them, they must care about children too, right? Or be somebody’s cousin or something. Yeah, that’s it. Dreamers – that’s what they are.

And the drug dealer’s working the border who no one is paying attention to at the moment? Field Day!

I’d call for impeachment, but I don’t know who to impeach first. Where is Boehner? Seriously, where is he? Why isn’t the Texas National Guard on the border dealing with this? It’s an emergency, right? Well, not a real emergency, since the DHS requested “child escort services” for 65,000 alien kids back in January. And BLAM! They show up right on cue – damn those DHS guys are intuitive, eh? But back to America: This place rocks – doesn’t it?

for Texas, risking their children’s lives and leaving behind their wonderful *gulp* culture, possibly never to return?

Until they make some good American cash-ola, that is.

The thing I’m curious about is what will history say about Barack Obama? I do know this – they really shouldn’t put me in charge of the history books when it’s time.

3 Ways God Responds To Wicked Leaders


Written by Doug Giles on June 23, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 7.55.26 AMI don’t know about you, but when I look at the multifaceted ways Obama and his ilk are Trigger the Votedestroying our nation I get more angry and depressed than Ted Nugent being forced to watch Lois Lerner do an interpretive dance to Boy George’s song Do You Really Want To Hurt Me, the extended cut.

Obama has overwhelmed/is truly overwhelming our nation with truly overwhelming cataclysmic crises that have left a lot of good people saying, “Screw it. I’m moving to Panama.”

Despair seems to be the soup de jour and it’s being served up to us cold. Ice cold.

When I get around people who still give a flip about our nation the conversation inevitably goes to “What can we do to stop this fetid mess BHO and his boys are foisting upon our land?”

Cloward Pevin with explanationThe typical response is: Get knowledgeable about what our nation was

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

originally intended to be and what a cartoon of that we have now become. After that get active, get vocal, protest, vote with your money, join Facebook groups with like-minded warriors, go to a bunch of conferences, scream at the television, and of course, vote during elections.

The problem is we do all that and it still doesn’t look like we’re putting a dent in what the President and the progressives are doing to our land and a lot of folks think that our votes won’t count anyway because of voter fraud and corruption.

Some people of faith conclude, “Well … I guess this is The End. Our preacher said it was gonna get this way before Jesus returns to kick some ass.’ And they resolve themselves to apathy and cynicism and become about as active Howard Hughes was during the flu season.

Speaking of God, for those who still care about Him and what He and His word think, what does the Bible say we should believe and look for when our nation is getting gutted and ransacked by leaders and policies that try to dispense with that which is holy, just and good?

Does it lead us to despair?

Should we look for Jesus to rapture us out of this mess?

Should our current climate make believers act like Lewis Black?

Are We Done For?

First off, let state that as much as it might look like we’re Paula Abduling and going one step forward and three steps back with the best of our a lawless governmentefforts to right the Obama wrongs, I do believe our righteous works are working and we need to step everything that we’re doing up several notches and get aggressive with the progressives.

Secondly, who the heck says that God’s only recourse when dealing with sucky situations is to rapture his people out the mess they’ve allowed themselves to get into? Biblically we’ve got a slew of passages that show that God can and will jackhammer rulers who dispense with his way and turn nations into a lawless, idolatrous and godless mess. For instance check out Psalm 2 gloomy Christian …

Why do the nations rage  and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth set themselves,  and the rulers take counsel together,  against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying,
“Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.”
He who sits in the heavens laughs;  the Lord holds them in derision.
Then he will speak to them in his wrath,  and terrify them in his fury, saying,
“As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.”
I will tell of the decree:
The Lord said to me, “You are my Son;  today I have begotten you.
Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession.
You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth.
Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son,  lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

Let’s break this Psalm down, shall we? So, what do we have? Well, according to the psalm we have a nation and their ruler[s] that’re blowing off A nation is strongGod and his righteous decrees, right? Right.

How does God respond? Does he pout? Quit? Move to Panama? Start overeating Hagen Daz because he’s so depressed? Does he emotionally check out and starting smoking weed and get into tie-dyeing beefy T’s to pass the time? Let’s see shall we?

According to Psalm 2 God does three things.

1. He laughs at the people and rulers who snub his ways. God’s amused that the puny ants he has created have now decided they can take things from here and they don’t need his holy ways or wisdom. Not only does he laugh at these wicked rulers who seek autonomy but he also scoffs at them and holds ‘em in derision. He thinks not only is their rebellion laughable but he also makes fun of them and sneers at them. Didn’t they ever teach you this at Sunday School? I didn’t think so. But it is Biblical, eh?

2. God rebukes the people and the rulers crapping on the nation. “Rebuke” is a word we don’t hear much of anymore, which makes me like it all the more. Rebuke is sharp or harsh disapproval. Check it out. Psalm 2 does not say, “God forgives and forgets” how wicked people and policies are destroying a land. It doesn’t say he’s changed his eternal ways and is now cool with their hip, groovy, 21st century decisions. It does not say he’s passive and merely acknowledges or, worse yet, winks at their wantonness. Oh, heck no. It says he castigates the folks that are jacking things up.

3. Not only does God laugh, scoff and rebuke the unrighteous acts of ingrate leaders, Pslam 2 also states that He is out to terrify him. What does that mean? I don’t know but it sounds terrifying, doesn’t it? When God arises to whup some ass, from what I’ve read and seen, you don’t what to be the recipient of that pool cue. In several different ways the inspired psalmist brands the reader with the revelation that leaders and godless policies impenitently pursued and propagated stir up God’s terrible wrath and that he will unleash it on their particular heads and land. Here, in this psalm, a promise is given, in a metaphorical way, that he will break and dash their wicked ruler and their reign into pieces. Whatever that means, it sounds pretty bad and pretty thorough.

In conclusion, according to the Verbum Dei, God states, according to Psalm 2, that he’s going to bless his people; he promises to establish his Good people who don't standson’s rule and to protect those who take refuge in him. For those who’re blowing Him off and leading their nation down highway 666 to CrapTown, God promises in no small or unclear way to deal with them in an exhaustive manner as only he can.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, who love God and this great land: expose, fight, protest, vote, rally, decry and do everything in your power to derail this dastardly dismantling of our nation; and never forget that a Holy God is also monitoring this BS and will temporally and eternally kick the backside of those who despise and dispense with His ways.

5 questions to ask a liberal progressive

Greetings from our nation’s Capitol where I am to speak this afternoon at the Faith and Trigger the VoteFreedom Coalition. And as always, I enjoyed a nice early morning 5-mile run from the bat cave over to the D.C. mall — doggone it is more humid up here than South Florida.

As I was pounding the pavement, I came up with a list of questions I’d like to pose to a liberal progressive. Well, for every mile it seems I came up with one — glad I didn’t try running 8 miles this morning!

 

 

Here you go:

1. If former President George W. Bush was un-American for adding $4 trillion to the national debt, then what is President Barack Hussein Obama who is on his way to adding $8 trillion — and still has two more years to go? Yep, under Obama the national debt has risen from $10.67 trillion to almost $17.5 trillion.

2. If as Obama states, “we leave no man behind,” then what of Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi, Pastor Saeed Abedini and Kenneth Bae — not to mention still-imprisoned Meriam Yahia Ibrahim – who had her chains removed after giving birth to her daughter, Maya? (And by the way, she is still under a death sentence under Sharia law for marrying a Christian). Nah, those folks don’t help Obama’s political agenda and certainly aren’t as important as recognizing illegal immigrant children “dreamers” at the White House.

3. When the average price of gasoline hit $2.50 a gallon, liberals and their media accomplices went apoplectic (you may have to define that word to a liberal friend) on George W. Bush. Why so silent now, when it’s $3.67?

4. If the late and former President Richard Nixon resigned over a bad case of “breaking and entering” (and the liberal media made a big hoopla over that), what does it take for Barack Hussein Obama to consider the same? Or does the color of skin trump content of character in America now? By the way, I’m planning on my computer crashing next year around tax return time.

5. If it is racist to disagree with the proven failed policies of Barry Soetoro, oops, I mean Barack Hussein Obama, then Truth The New Hate Speechwhat is it when liberal progressives disrespect, dismiss, denigrate, demean, disparage, discredit and seek to destroy black conservative Republicans? Funny, all those “D” words come from the Democrat party. Don’t believe me, just look for the responses to this post from liberal progressives (so predictable).

Now, just so you’re aware, be careful when asking these questions to be outside the range of spittle and frothing of the mouth. As well, stand clear so as not to be struck by a liberal progressives wild arm-flinging tantrums as they throw themselves on the floor in a mad rage. These are the telltale symptoms of liberals exposed to the truth — similar to exposing vampires to light. But know that this reaction affirms you are right on the issues and confirms the liberal progressive inability to intellectually respond.

Obama health official: The Obamacare ‘bailout’ of insurers will be financed by a new tax on everyone’s health plan

Complete Message

Trigger the VoteFor months, there have been assertions that the mechanisms embedded in Obamacare, designed to offset losses that insurance companies will take this year on their exchange business, amount to a bailout of the insurance industry.

At the same time, it wasn’t clear where the money to pay for these “risk adjustments” would come from in the first place.

One scheme had the Obama Administration using money that it clawed away from profitable health plans to offset the losses incurred by the less fortunate insurers.

This, at least, was the way the so-called “risk corridors” were supposed to work, according to the original legislation. Problem is, it’s not clear that there will be enough health plans this year (or any at all) with excess profits that could be used to offset the losses incurred by insurers who were less fortunate.

Another scheme — the one that gave influence to the specter of a bailout– had the Obama team using taxpayer funds to directly offset the losses

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

taken by exchange health plans. This approach had obstacles as well. Chief among them is that the money for the bailout doesn’t exist. It was never set aside.

Even if the Obama team tried to re-program slush funds that it surfaced inside the Department of Health and Human Services, a recent analysis by the Congressional Research Service makes clear that first, Congress would have to separately appropriate the funds in order for any money to be spent on the Obamacare plans.

Now we know where the “bailout” money is going to come from. It will be paid for by a new tax levied on the insurance companies.

Mandy Cohen, the Acting Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Service’s Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, delivered that message yesterday. Cohen was testifying before the House Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Job Creation and Regulatory Affairs. She said that if funding for the risk corridors can’t be financed off the money that gets clawed away from profitable insurers (therefore allowing the entire scheme to remain budget neutral) then CMS has the authority, if not the intention to impose additional “user fees” on all health insurers to cover the higher losses experienced by the Obamacare plans.

At issue is what’s being referred to as the “three R’s.”

These are Obamacare policy constructs that are designed to offset losses that insurers will take as a result of the mostly older, and less healthy mix of patients that enrolled in the exchanges.

Caution Bailout ImminentThese three R’s include:

  1. A reinsurance fund of about $25 billion (financed off a fee on commercial insurance plans) that compensate health plans that enroll a costlier pool of patients;
  2. “Risk corridors” that substantially limit insurance company losses by shifting these costs to taxpayers;
  3. and Risk adjustment that balances health plans that enroll a disproportionate share of costlier patients.

Cloward PivenThe money drawn off the newly proposed user fees (tax) would be used to finance the risk corridors. This scheme is largely aimed at shifting money between insurers that lost excessive amounts of money, and those that were profitable.

Problem is, almost everyone lost money. Few if any Obamacare plans had excess profits this year, owing to the rocky rollout. So there isn’t any money to shift around — absent, of course, some new cash infusion. That’s where the user fee comes into play.

Since Obamacare health plans were prevented from pricing products to reflect true risk, they were always going to have atypically high cost, and in turn, losses. The red ink was inevitable. Now all of us will be forced to pay for it, whether we have an Obamacare plan or not. That new tax will be passed onto everyone in the form of higher premiums.

THE NEW “LIE OF THE YEAR” From the Obama Administration


Stunning: DHS solicited bids for vendor to handle 65,000 unaccompanied minors — IN JANUARY!

By Thomas Lifson

Trigger the VoteThe Obama administration’s claim to have been surprised by the wave of children flooding

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

over out borders may turn out to be another political lie of the year. Sundance of Conservative Treehouse noticed a very peculiar advertisement:

On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“.

Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000.

•  Why would DHS and ICE be claiming “surprise” by the current influx of unaccompanied minors on the border in June, when they were taking bids for an exact contract to handle the exact situation in January?

• Secondly, how could they possibly  anticipate 65,000 unaccompanied minors would be showing up at the border, when the most ever encountered in a previous year was 5,000 total ?

The bid specifics are even more suspicious:

[…] The Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for non-criminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year. Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25% local ground transport, 25% via ICE charter and 50% via commercial air.

[…] In addition, the Contractor shall have personnel who are able to communicate with juveniles in their own designated language(s).

Link to the ad here.

Cloward PivenThis stinks to high heaven. It is time to subpoena the people who placed the ad to give testimony in Congress. We may have a Cloward-Piven strategy on illegal immigration underway.

    The New Yorker (1/27/2014): “In the 2012 campaign, Obama spoke not only of killing Osama bin Laden; he also said that Al Qaeda had been ‘decimated.’ I pointed out that the flag of Al Qaeda is now flying in Fallujah, in Iraq, and among various rebel factions in Syria; Al Qaeda has asserted a presence in parts of Africa, too.

    ‘The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,’ Obama said, resorting to an uncharacteristically flip analogy. ‘I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.'”

  • 2. Russia’s intervention in Ukraine

    AP

    Politico.com (3/4/14): “A White House spokeswoman declined to comment on whether Obama was satisfied with the intelligence he received on Russian intentions in Ukraine. But spokesmen for the U.S. intelligence community defended its work.

    The Central Intelligence Agency says it’s always noted the possibility of aggressive military action.

    ‘Prior to and throughout the situation in Ukraine, the intelligence community has provided timely and valuable information that has helped policy makers understand the situation on the ground and make informed decisions. That continues to be the case today,’ said Shawn Turner, a spokesman for Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. ‘Any suggestion that there were intelligence shortcomings related to the situation in Ukraine are uninformed and misleading.’

    … While officials appear to disagree about the insights offered by U.S. intelligence, it’s beyond dispute that a lot of public commentary pundits offered as the Ukraine crisis unfolded was less than clairvoyant.”

    Wall Street Journal (10/28/2013): “Obama was unaware for the last 5 years, the NSA had been spying on German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other members of world leaders. Only after an internal Obama administration review in 2013 did the White House know of the spying.”

And when did other White House officials, top White House officials, become aware of these problems?”

    JAY CARNEY: “When you say these problems, the fact that there have been bureaucracies –”

    ACOSTA: “The delays have been known for some time.”

    CARNEY: “You mean the specific allegations that I think were reported first by your news network out of Phoenix, I believe. We learned about them through the reports. I will double check if that is not the case. But that is when we learned about them and that is when I understand Secretary Shinseki learned about them, and he immediately took the action that he has taken.”

    Remarks by President Obama on HealthCare.gov (10/21/2013): “Of course, you’ve probably heard that HealthCare.gov — the new website where people can apply for health insurance and browse and buy affordable plans in most states — hasn’t worked as smoothly as it was supposed to work. And the number of people who visit the site has been overwhelming which has aggravated some of these underlying problems.”

    Jay Carney during a White House press briefing (10/23/2013): “While we knew that there would be some glitches and actually said publicly that we expected some problems, we did not know until the problems manifested themselves after the launch that they would be as significant as they have turned out to be.”

    QUESTION: “What was his reaction to that? Does he believe that this was an overreach?”

    CARNEY: “All I can tell you is that I cannot and he cannot comment specifically on an ongoing criminal investigation or actions that investigators at the Department of Justice may or may not have taken. It would be wholly inappropriate. And if we did comment on it, or if we did have insight into it, you would appropriately ask why and is that correct procedure, because it would not be.”

Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP),talked with TPNN’s Tim Constantine about the event, Barack Obama, and the moral decay in America.

On TPNN’s “The Capitol Hill Show,” Reverend Owens told Tim that the purpose of the March for Marriage is to let people know that we still believe in marriage between a man and a woman–one man and one woman, for our families, for the protection of the family, for the protection of our children.”

The rally, organized by the National Organization for Marriage and other groups, is expected to have 20,000 attendees according to Rev. Owens.

TIM CONSTANTINE:  “You can agree with any president, or disagree with any president on political issues, but I am absolutely stumped on this. Because we have any number of issues going on around the globe. We’ve got trouble with our economy here; we’ve got trouble with jobs here; we’ve got trouble in Iraq; we’ve got trouble in Russia, the Ukraine; we’ve got trouble throughout the Middle East, and yet his [Obama’s] attention this week has been pushed on two things. One, let’s let illegal immigrants in–we’ll leave that one alone for now, but also lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights. That’s been his big issue of the week.

Does he have any idea there are other issues going on in the world? Why is that a priority for him?

REVEREND BILLY OWENS:  I wonder. I wonder if he really does know what’s going on in the world. I just really wonder.

You see, I believe, I know, when President Obama was first elected, he was for same-sex marriage then, but the deal he made with the gay community was ‘I must get elected the first time by saying I’m for marriage between a man and a woman.’

But the deal was, in the second term, he was going to take it over with a passion [homosexual marriage], and that he was done.

He has bowed, he has bullied, he has done everything to satisfy and pacify the gay community.

Tim Constantine asks the reverend what the “end game is” and that if marriage is redefined, after thousands of years of history to the contrary, as being simply between consenting adults, wouldn’t that open up the possibility of polygamy? “Where does it end,” Tim asked.

“It’s a terribly slippery slope,” Rev. Owens contended. “They intend to turn this whole society as if we have no gender,” he continued, giving the example of a new law passed in California which allows boys to use girls restrooms.

“It’s terrible that this president has started this country on an immoral course, Rev. Owens said in disgust. “This is the most immoral president we’ve ever had.”

Reverend Owens group, the Coalition of African American Pastors has also been strongly pushing for the impeachment of Attorney General Eric Holder.

Explaining Crony Government to the Low-Info Crowd

Posted on by Conservative Byte

CountryClassRulingClassIRS

Liberals love their low information voters since they are easily manipulated with lies and feelings.
Check it out:

It seems more and more that our focus sadly is on the low-information crowd. And the problem with that is that most low-information people don’t know that they are low-information people. The ignorant, by definition, don’t know what they don’t know. Therefore, they don’t that they’re ignorant. So they never think you’re talking to them. And more and more that seems to be the target of what we have to do, because they’re the ones that they’re having the wool pulled over their eyes by slick packaging and marketing.

That’s really nothing new. It just seems to be more successfully exploited today than I remember it being. But I could be wrong about that. It could be common parlance. I always strive to make sure I don’t think something that is happening today is worse than ever. But man, I’ve never been, in my life, a country this precariously balanced. In my life the country has never been this threatened. The basics, the fundamentals, the foundation, has never been under assault like this. There’s always been leftists. There’s always been anti-American, blame America, first people. They’ve never been this numerous in leadership positions before. That’s different, too.

Ronaldus Magnus, ladies and gentlemen, 1975 interview on 60 Minutes. “It always has been. How do we call a liberal? You know, someone very profoundly once said many years ago that if fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.”

And then Reagan said, “And what is fascism? Fascism is private ownership, private enterprise, but total government control and regulation. Well, isn’t this the liberal philosophy? The conservative, so-called, is the one that says less government, get off my back, get out of my pocket, and let me have more control of my own destiny.”

Reagan back in 1975. And I think most people today — you know who the low-information crowd today is? Well, among them is the New York Times readers. New York Times readers today are the essence of low-information voters. That Scott Walker story, classic example. The readers of the New Republic are low-information readers. They don’t know it. They think they know the gospel. They’re being lied to and they just eagerly swallow every syllable of it.

ISIS Announces Its Next Attack


http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/06/20/ISIS-Announces-its-Next-Attack

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

Mosul in Iraq last week and has been pushing south towards Baghdad, announced it is also preparing an offensive in northern Syria. 

In a statement dated June 17, 2014, and published on several Arabic websites, ISIS called on its fighters to attack the city of Al-Qamishli and its rural areas.  In the last several hours a number of bombings have been reported on Twitter and some reports say the airport of Qamishli has been heavily damaged.

As Michael Rubin reported in February in The Wall Street Journal, Christians, Kurds and Arabs have been conducting a quiet experiment in self-rule in this region of northeast Syria.  The region was left largely undefended as President Assad’s forces were drawn to clashes further west, so residents came together to keep day-to-day life running smoothly. Popular Protection Units (YPG), a kind of people’s militia, have been keeping the Islamists at bay.  While predominantly Kurdish, the YPG also have been joined by Arabs and Syrian Christians.  In early May, the YPG fought alongside the Free Syrian Army in clashes with ISIS forces in Raqqa province.  And unlike the ISIS fighters, who prefer their women fully veiled, the YPG have men and women fighting alongside each other.

 

“I want to make sure you did not gloss over that. “Michael Rubin reported in February in The Wall Street Journal, Christians, Kurds and Arabs have been conducting a quiet experiment in self-rule in this region of northeast Syria.……..so residents came together to keep day-to-day life running smoothly. s militia, have been keeping the Islamists at bay.  While predominantly Kurdish, the YPG also have been joined by Arabs and Syrian Christians.

“Not even FOX is telling us that. That is good news, and something we all can do our part and help them fight this fight by doing the Spiritual Warfare necessary to get God giving them the victory. Can I count on you?” JB

angry 05The ISIS statement of June 17 says the following:

ISIS calls its units of God to lift high their banner of Islam in the Al-Hasaka governorate and “to free it from the Syrian regime, the grandchildren of the Jews, the Zionist Kurdish PYD and the grandchildren of the Crusaders, the Christian infidels.” 

The sharia court of ISIS issued a Fatwa proclaiming Al-Qamishli and its rural area as the rightful property of ISIS. The ISIS statement proclaims that after seeking God, jihadists should do the following:

1.  Burn and bring down all houses of entertainment in Al-Qamishli. 

2. Burn all stores selling alcohol and cigarettes. 

3. Take full control of the famed “Jewelry market” of Al-Qamishli, and all silver and gold in the market is to be taken by the ISIS fighters because it is rightfully theirs. 

4. Take full control of all food and clothing stores in order to give it to their brother jihadist fighters. 

5.  Empty the city of all Christians: Take their women; they are yours, and behead the Christian men. Empty the city of all Kurds, who are the grandchildren of deceivers; take out from the city the family of al Khaznawi and kill them all.  (Sheikh Khaznawi was a Kurdish cleric in Qamishli who was assassinated in June 2005.)  With the statement ISIS issued to its fighting units a map of Al-Hasaka, Al-Qamishli and other suburbs, where the above five tasks are to be carried out “according to the command of Allah.”

Some commentators have said that neither the Assad regime nor the Kurds fear an ISIS advance on Qamishli.  But after their surprise conquest of Mosul, perhaps previous assessments of ISIS’s strength and boldness should be reconsidered.

Martial Law: The Regime’s End Game?


http://minutemennews.com/2014/06/martial-law-regimes-end-game/#pHHz7qRT0YxemJju.99

By: Marilyn Assenheim

20 June 2014

WarningMartialLawNowInEffectSigns_zps2f3548b3“Soft tyranny,” was first coined by Alexander de Tocqueville in “Democracy in America”Trigger the Vote as: “Whenever the social conditions of a particular community hinder any prospect of hope among its members.” Some differentiate “soft” tyranny from “hard” or Stalin-esque tyranny as being bloodless. But life can be extinguished without a drop of blood being spilled.

Wikipedia states that some historians describe a “soft” tyranny by the conditions that bring it about, citing 18th century France: “The most obvious area in which soft tyranny affects people occurs with their fiscal situation…the price of bread…increased to the point where common peasants could not afford to purchase it on a daily basis…violence in the form of rioting emerged as a consequence…which can…disrupt and eventually unravel an entire socio-economic order.” 21st century America is closing in on those conditions.

On Wednesday, InvestmentWatch reported that, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the price of meat, chicken, eggs and fish had risen to an all-time high. The phrase to note in describing the cost of feeding oneself and one’s family is “all-time high.” When the BLS first began tracking food costs in 1967, the index figure was 38.1. In May of 2013, during Obama’s “recovery,” it had risen to 234.572. By May of 2014, the figure reached a staggering 252.832, an unthinkable 7.7% increase in food costs in one year.

InvestmentWatch cited the BLS conclusion that gas prices are now at a six-year high: “The jump in crude, driven by concern that the crisis in Iraq will disrupt supplies, may boost pump prices by 10 cents a gallon at a time when they normally drop…” Who is responsible for the situation in Iraq? A little-reported item was published in Maclean’s on Wednesday. Canada has conditionally approved the Northern Gateway project which would eliminate necessity for the Keystone pipeline. Crude would now run directly from Alberta to the Canadian coastline, for overseas export. The Lyin’ King shelved the Keystone project long enough to make it a moot point: “Queen’s University energy policy expert Warren Mabee says…‘Keystone obama-liar4-266x189XL is caught up in politics. President Obama does not want to move in either direction at this point. He’d rather keep it boiling on the back burner as long as he can.’”

On June 6 the BLS also asserted that 6.3% of America’s labor force, or 9.8 million people, were unemployed. This did not take into account those that had been jettisoned from unemployment rolls, left the workforce or were forced into part-time work through the loss of full-time positions. A Gallup poll in 2013, countered the regime’s falsified math. Gallup’s numbers indicated that unemployment was worse, 8.6%. And that was a year ago.Tyranney Alert

In 2012 Obama signed an Executive Order that is now all-but forgotten. FOX News reported then: “President Obama’s signature on an executive order…updates presidential authority to take control over national defense resources in time of emergency…The executive order…says any other previously issued orders or rulings by previous presidents shall remain in effect unless they are inconsistent with the new order…The purpose of the order…is to make sure the U.S. is prepared to mobilize technological and industrial resources ‘capable of meeting national defense requirements’…in peacetime and in times of national emergency.’” Ostensibly put into place because tension with Iran was hotting up, current conditions put this “update” in a new light.police_state

None of the scandals, Benghazi, the IRS, the NSA, the VA debacle, the Bergdahl trade for five Guantanamo terrorists, the tsunami of illegal children “spontaneously” flooding the borders and the current return of significant portions of Iraq to terrorist control, are the result of administrative one-offs; it is crucial to recognize that everything is the result of intentional, presidential policy. As a result, a theory to consider may just be that Obama is trying to force a public, on the verge of desperation because of Legislative fecklessness, to act. Martial law would go a long way toward putting a cast on his so-called “lame duck” presidency.

Federal Departments have been siphoning up ordnance for almost two years, with very little attention called to it by the media or Congress. Cloward PivenForbes reported that the Department of Homeland Security purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in 2013. They were joined by such unlikely entities as the USPS, Social Security Administration, IRS, Department of Education, HHS and even The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The Bureau of Land Management did everything in its power to gin up armed confrontation with Cliven Bundy. The BLM used confiscation and destruction of Bundy’s cattle, overt threats involving their use of weapons and making promises of lethal force against the Bundy family. Support for Bundy came from many states and peacefully defied government forces. Had Bundy’s supporters opened fire it would have given the regime a free hand to launch martial law as defined by Executive order.

There is no quicker way to consign an idea to ignominy than to posit what could be construed as a conspiracy theory. But, when six years of presidential policies alone results in the unprecedented grinding of an entire nation into the dirt, perhaps it’s time for wishful thinkers to stop pretending that the Emperor is swathed in sartorial splendor and that he is, instead, naked. Preferably before our soft tyranny gets very, very hard.

Then it will be too late.

Clueless, Insane or Downright Evil? (Part 2)


Resist AmnestyEvents in the Middle East, and in Iraq specifically, seem to be erupting with a brutality that few in the West have the stomach, or balls, to comprehend. Many here in the United States decry any notion that we should get involved in Iraq again, saying that the conflict is between the Shiites and the Sunnis and does not concern us. Oh, if only that were true; but upon his release by Obama in 2009, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), warned his American jailers that he would see them in New York. Given the current immigration crisis we now face, wherein the doors have been flung open for all who wish to come in, it would not be surprising if the terrorists of ISIS plan to trek to New York by way of our southern border.

In an interview with Fox News, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) stated that Texas currently has a record number of “other than Mexicans” coming across. Many of these are determined to do us harm, and Perry warned the Obama administration of this trend in 2012, saying:

“We have record high numbers of other than Mexicans being apprehended at the border. These are people that are coming from states like Syria that have substantial connections back to terrorist regimes and terrorist operations. So we’re seeing record, historic high numbers of these individuals being apprehended.”

“We flagged this issue in 2012 and have yet to even have a response as far as I know, from not just, not from the president, but not even from his administration.”

Even worse, the Mexican drug cartels are in cahoots with the terrorists and are helping to smuggle them across. Filmmaker, Chris Burgard, Trigger the Votedetailed the crisis 9 years ago in a documentary entitled BORDER. Burgard’s account:

A few years back, I was at a lunch with then Minority Leader Boehner. I had just spent several days with border law enforcement, staging on a remote East Texas ranch. The ranch wife had reported Middle Eastern men being smuggled across the river and through her ranch. The cartels sent a message to her sister on the Mexican side of the river: “Tell your sister to shut the f**k up, or we will cut her head off and take it back to Chihuahua.”

Some of the members of these drug cartels are arguably more brutal and barbaric than al-Baghdadi. It was recently reported that Mexican drug syndicate, Sinaloa, hired members of the gang, La Mara Salvatrucha (or “MS-13”), to travel from Los Angeles to recover 30 pounds of meth and $200,000 that had been stolen in St. Paul, Minnesota. Sinaloa’s drug trafficking into the Midwest has been quite lucrative and MS-13 is sadistically effective at extracting information. Two teenagers in the area found that out when they were fingered as the thieves, kidnapped, tortured and threatened

with death until the enforcers were satisfied that they were not the culprits. MS-13 presently boasts over 70,000 members all over the United States. The gang has become such an imposing force that even the pandering Obama administration classified it as an “international crime group” in 2012.

Incredibly, as Obama is enlisting law enforcement agencies to track down MS-13, he and his minions are knowingly allowing gang members to stream across the border in the current exodus. Many of them have direct ties to MS-13, but because they are teenagers they will not be deported. Instead they will be labeled as “DREAMers” and allowed to stay. In fact, the border patrol has been forbidden from enforcing the law, as they have been turned into nursemaids for thousands of illegal children. These children are receiving better care, at taxpayer expense, than even many who are homeless citizens and American kids in the U.S. foster care system.

Cloward PivenIt is clear that the Obama administration, with help from GOP enablers, has made this country increasingly more dangerous just within the last couple of weeks through their amnesty by proxy scheme. All the while, the ruling elite is trying to make it increasingly more difficult for law abiding citizens to defend themselves, as they double down in their efforts to restrict the purchase of firearms and ammunition.

The primary function of the United States government is to protect and defend American citizens. Not only is President Barack Obama failing to protect the citizenry of this country, he is knowingly, willfully and actively putting us at risk. This man should not just be impeached…he should be lead out of the White House in handcuffs!

When Obama drew a “red line” against Syria’s Bashir Assad for his (alleged) use of chemical weapons, the world witnessed proof that our paper tiger President is completely full of crap. Assad crossed that line and Obama did nothing. The message was sent loud and clear: America is a super-power no more. Thus, we have a world in absolute turmoil. Yet, the red line that is our border is being crossed on a daily basis and the ruling class is rolling out the red carpet for those who would love to destroy this country. But “what difference does it make” to a a lawless governmentlame duck socialist? He has a security detail. When is the next tee time?

It feels as if our beautiful America is like a wounded animal surrounded on all sides by wild dogs who are ready to rip her to shreds and feast on the remains. At the same time, we have a President who is responsible for inflicting many of those wounds himself, and now he’s content to observe the carnage for his own amusement.

Clueless, insane or downright evil? You decide.

Kenya: Terrorists Go Door to Door Shedding Christian Blood


article-2658751-1ECBF31100000578-210_634x359

Door to door contact is known globally, post World War II, as a means to make a sale Trigger the Voteor expedite a message, usually of peace. Think vacuum salesmen, kids doing fundraising, Avon ladies, Mormon missionaries, Jehovah’s Witnesses. A sign prohibiting trespassing, or soliciting, is all it takes to deter anyone of these groups.

No so for members of the extremist group known as al-Shabaab. Heavily armed, these militants exerted brutality in a door-to-door massacre of non-Muslims in a small village on Kenya’s coastline earlier this week.

The body count rose quickly as approximately 30 Somali gunmen invaded Mpeketoni, going door-to-door. They shot dead any man who was not Muslim or did not know the Somali language.

Mail Online reports this from victims of the bloodbath:

They came to our house at around 8pm and asked us in Swahili whether we were Muslims,’ said Anne Gathigi. ‘My husband told them we were Christians and they shot him in the head and chest.’

Another resident, John Waweru, said his two brothers were killed because the attackers did not like that the brothers did not speak Somali.

‘My brothers who stay next door to me were killed as I watched. I was peeping from my window and I clearly heard them speak to my brothers in Somali and it seems since my brothers did not meet their expectations, they sprayed them with bullets and moved on,’ said Waweru.

How do these brazen third world terrorists recruit and organize for a door-to-door murder campaign? With 21st century technology developed in the west. Social media. What an ironic twist.

Mail Online reveals:

‘While the levels of brutality seen here by ISIS and al-Shabaab are no different from what we have seen them do before, the way they are publicizing their acts of terror is wholly new. 

‘Through the use of social media, like Twitter and Facebook, such groups are seeking to maximize coverage of their atrocities with great effect. 

Terrorists are using the internet to peddle their hate on an unprecedented scale – because it’s quick, easy and free to use. 

Twitter, Facebook and other social media have provided Islamic groups with a global reach, bolstering their propaganda, radicalization and recruitment, say experts. Christian Persecution

Twitter, for example, hosts a number of official feeds for terrorist groups, including Somalia’s al-Shabaab, the North African al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, Syria’s Jabhat al-Nusra, the Taliban, Hamas and ISIS. 

Terror expert Gabriel Weimann of the Woodrow Wilson Center, SAYS the reason they have turned to social media is no different than the rest of us – it’s a quick, easy and, above all, free form of anonymous communication. 

‘Terrorists have good reasons to use social media,’ says Weimann, who has studied the online behavior of terrorists for years and last month published a report entitled, ‘New Terrorism and New Media’. 

‘First, these channels are by far the most popular with their intended audience, which allows terrorist organizations to be part of the mainstream. 

‘Second, social media channels are user-friendly, reliable, and free.

‘Finally, social networking allows terrorists to reach out to their target audiences and virtually “knock on their doors” — in contrast to older models of websites in which terrorists had to wait for visitors to come to them.’ 

Weimann explains that terrorists are using most of the major social media platforms to recruit militant Islamists. In his report, he quotes a jihadi online web forum explaining: ‘Facebook is a great idea, and better than the forums. Instead of waiting for people to [come to you so you can] inform them, you go to them and teach them!… if you have a group of 5,000 people, with the press of a button you [can] send them a standardized message.’

Internet traffic in several areas overrun by militants, including Mosul and Tikrit, was ordered cut off altogether, he said. No timeframe was given for the shutdowns.

It may however, prove to be a futile gesture given how easy it is for terrorists to simply create new, anonymous accounts in a matter of minutes.

‘One element of publicizing such acts on the internet is to show other terror groups, and potential recruits, particularly those committed to establishing a caliphate, what they are capable of and the lengths to which they will go to promote their causes.’

 angry 05
Staying one step ahead of terrorists is now a matter of cyber expertise and deciphering hash values. Maybe it’s time to develop the talent of telepathic patriots, organize a ‘Minority Report’ center and unleash prophylactic measures before another slaughter by internet savvy horror mongers.

These 42 Democrats are willing to let free speech go, but this is the world we live in: Congress wants to control everything you do.

They must be confident there are not many differences between establishment Republicans and Democrats. They both want the same things.

When you watch, notice how Cruz is a master of constitutional thought and understanding. I don’t know why any thinking American wouldn’t want him running the show.

You know things are getting fascist when one of the most conservative members of the Senate is aligned with the ACLU.

Hard to believe the lemmings in this country are willing to vote for Democrats who gladly take their rights away.

Bush Vindicated: Islamic Terrorists Overtake Saddam’s WMD Facilities

ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) terrorists have seized and gained control of the Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) that were stockpiled by former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

B.S. MeterWe’ve been told by the Democrat Media Complex that WMDs didn’t exist in Iraq, and that George W. Bush started the war against Saddam Hussein based on that false assumption.

Pelosi, for example, said that, “Bush led us into the war on the basis of unproven assertions.” And, let us not forget the moronic Democrat Party meme, “Bush lied, Americans died.” 

How could the ISIS terrorists have taken over Saddam’s WMD facility if WMD’s never existed?

Like it or not, George W. Bush has now officially and forever been completely vindicated.

Although numerous Democrats, including Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, John Edwards, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, and others, claimed from 1998 through 2002 that Hussein had WMDs, they labeled President George W. Bush a liar after the war in Iraq began for having made similar statements, despite the fact that the Democrats overwhelmingly voted for the war. 

Every Democrat, including Obama, Reid, Pelosi and Wasserman-Shultz, who called George W. Bush a liar and every other hateful name in the book, including every MSNBC host, owes him a huge apology.

The UK Telegraph reports on this seizure of WMDs in Iraq.

Isis jihadists have seized a chemical weapons facility built by Saddam Hussein which contains a stockpile of old weapons, State Department officials have told the Wall Street Journal:

U.S. officials don’t believe the Sunni militants will be able to create a functional chemical weapon from the material. The weapons stockpiled at the Al Muthanna complex are old, contaminated and hard to move, officials said.

Nonetheless, the capture of the chemical-weapon stockpile by the forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, known as ISIS or ISIL, the militant group that is seizing territory in the country, has grabbed the attention of the U.S.

“We remain concerned about the seizure of any military site by the ISIL,” Jen Psaki, the State Department spokeswoman, said in a written statement. “We do not believe that the complex contains CW materials of military value and it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to safely move the materials.” 

They continued with reporting on Saddam Hussein’s history of using these weapons.

The remaining chemical weapons from Saddam Hussein’s regime are stored in two sealed bunkers, both located at the Al Muthanna Chemicals Weapons Complex, a large site in the western desert some 80km north west of Baghdad. 

This was the principal manufacturing plant for both chemical agents and munitions during Saddam Hussein’s rule.

Thousands of tonnes of chemical weapons were produced, stored and deployed by the Saddam Hussein regime. Iraq used these weapons during the Iran – Iraq War (1980 to 1988) and against the Kurds in Halabja in 1988.

 The chemical weapons that were seized from the facility include mustard gas, Sarin, Tabun, and VX

Man With Knife Approaches Father And Daughter — Father Pulls Gun

An Idaho man says he is glad he recently obtained a concealed weapons permit after he said he was forced to pull his gun when a man wielding a knife approached him and his two-year-old daughter on Wednesday.

“My daughter and I were parked here and I was standing by the vehicle on the rail,” Anthony Broyles told KREM.

The father and daughter were spending the day together at Lake Coeur d’Alene.

“There was a van that was parked in that direction with two gentlemen sitting in it,” he said.

“I turned around and there was a guy that was sneaking up on me … probably about 15 feet behind me and he asked me if I had any money,” said Broyles, who also told KREM that he thought the man wanted to kidnap his daughter.

“I pushed my daughter back, pulled out my weapon, cocked it and aimed it at him,” said Broyles, whose .380 LCP Ruger forced the man to flee.

“I believe in carrying weapons,” said Broyles, a former Marine who obtained his Idaho concealed weapons permit earlier this year.

“If I didn’t have my pistol today I’m pretty sure I would have been dead,” Broyles said.

‘I don’t believe you!’: Paul Ryan levels blistering attack against IRS boss over ‘lost’ emails explanation


http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/06/20/irs-boss-faces-cover-up-claims-ahead-hill-hearing-on-missing-emails/

Incredulous lawmakers tore into IRS Commissioner John Koskinen over the agency’s claims that subpoenaed emails of ex-Trigger the Voteofficial Lois Lerner and other employees are gone forever because a hard drive was destroyed. 

“This is unbelievable,” Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., angrily told Koskinen. That’s your problem. Nobody believes you.”

Koskinen responded, “I have a long career. That’s the first time anyone’s said I don’t believe you.”

“I don’t believe you,” Ryan shot back again.

Koskinen set a defiant tone during his testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee, telling lawmakers he felt no need for the agency to apologize amid accusations of a cover-up in the targeting scandal of conservative groups. Republican lawmakers had demanded the emails between Lerner and other government officials – including at the White House – be turned over to determine whether there was a coordinated effort to stymie conservative groups prior to the 2012 elections.

“I don’t think an apology is owed,” he said. “We haven’t lost an email since the start of this investigation.”

“I don’t believe you.” – Rep. Paul Ryan, R- Wisc., to IRS commissioner

That didn’t sit well with Chairman David Camp, R-Mich., who pressed the commissioner on the timeline of events and accused the agency of “keeping secrets.”Tyranney Alert

GOP lawmakers are furious after learning a week ago that many Lerner emails from a two-year period supposedly have disappeared. Committee Republicans now say that the IRS may have known about this for months, and that the agency may have lost emails from another six employees. 

“The IRS in charge of hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ information. And you’re now saying your technology system was so poor that years’ worth of emails are forever unrecoverable?” Camp charged. “How does that put anyone at ease? How far would the excuse ‘I lost it’ get with the IRS for an average American trying to file their yearly taxes who may have lost a few receipts.”

The tone and exchanges between lawmakers and the commissioner frequently became heated.

Rep. Carl Levin, D- Mich., stood up for the IRS Friday and likened the investigation and calls of a cover-up to a political witch hunt brought on

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

by Republicans who he claims will try “to tie the problem to the White House” and will “keep up this drumbeat until the November election.”

During the testy exchange between Ryan and Koskinen, Levin tried to intervene.

“Will you let him answer the question?” Levin asked Ryan.

Ryan responded angrily, “I didn’t ask him a question!”

Levin chided his colleagues that, “witnesses deserve some respect.”

Earlier this week, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said he’s been told that Lerner’s hard drive was simply destroyed. 

“They just got rid of it,” he told Fox News. “It really looks bad and I’ve got to say it looks like a cover-up to me.” 

Hatch and Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., are leading a bipartisan investigation in the Senate Finance Committee into the targeting scandal, separate from the House Ways and Means probe. 

House and Senate Republicans, though, have common questions for the commissioner and the rest of the agency. 

Hatch fired off a letter to Koskinen on Thursday voicing concerns that he met with him on Monday, yet the commissioner and his staff did not mention that emails from six other employees might be missing. 

Hold Lois Lerner in Contempt.Lerner, the former IRS official at the center of the investigation, invoked her Fifth Amendment right at least nine times to avoid answering lawmakers’ questions. According to an audit by the Treasury Department inspector general for tax administration, Lerner did not learn that IRS staffers were improperly reviewing applications of Tea Party and other conservative groups for tax-exempt status until weeks after her computer crashed.

PI 11Lerner’s computer crashed sometime around June 13, 2011, according to emails provided to Congress. She first learned about the tea party reviews on June 29, according to the inspector general.

Koskinen told Congress that Lerner’s hard drive was unavailable to them because it had been recycled.BS WARNING BS ALERT

 

The IRS said last week it became aware of the missing emails in February of this year. The IRS did not know whether the other computer crashes have resulted in lost emails as well. It will also not say how often its computers fail and lose data.

The lost emails are raising questions even by the government’s records officer. In a June 17 letter to the IRS, Paul Wester Jr. asked the agency to investigate the loss of records and whether any disposal of data was authorized. Wester, the chief records officer at the National Archives and Records Administration, was responding to the IRS’ June 13 disclosure of Lerner’s lost emails.

Wester’s letter did not address the lost records of six other employees that the IRS disclosed that day. Wester said the IRS is required to report its finding within 30 days. Federal agencies are supposed to report destruction of records — whether accidental or intentional — to the National Archives “promptly” after an incident.BS WARNING BS ALERT

The IRS said that after Lerner’s computer crashed in June 2011, technicians were not able to retrieve data from her hard drive.

In May, more than two months after the IRS discovered the emails were missing, the IRS assured Camp that it would provide all applications from groups seeking tax-exempt status in 2010 and 2011, including all files, correspondence and internal IRS records related to them. Camp had asked for the records in May 2012.BS WARNING BS ALERT

It’s similarly unclear why the IRS didn’t attempt to recover the emails from backup servers in June 2011, especially since Lerner told an IRS computer technician in a July 2011 email, “There were some documents in the files that are irreplaceable.”

Shawn Henry, the FBI’s former cyber director, said technicians should have been able to retrieve data from the servers around the times the computers crashed.

“If they knew there was a problem in 2011,” said Henry, now president of CrowdStrike, a security technology company, “they could have or should have been able to recover it.”

30 Witnesses disappearThe IRS told Congress last week that recovering emails has been a challenge because doing so is “a more complex process for the IRS than it is for many private or public organizations.”

The IRS was able to find copies of 24,000 Lerner emails from between 2009 and 2011 because Lerner had sent copies to other IRS employees. Overall, the IRS said it was producing 67,000 emails to and from Lerner, covering 2009 to 2013. The agency said it searched for emails of 83 people and spent nearly $10 million to produce hundreds of thousands of documents.

At the time that Lerner’s computer crashed, IRS policy had been to make copies of all IRS employees’ email inboxes every day and hold them for six months. The agency changed the policy in May 2013 to keep these snapshots for a longer, unspecified amount of time. Had this been the policy in 2011, when at least two of the computer crashes occurred, there likely could have been backups of the lost emails today.

The chief executive for an email-archiving company, Pierre Villeneuve of Jatheon Technologies, said most public and private sector organizations keep emails for several years, not six months, because of financial regulations and inexpensive computer storage.

The IRS has said technicians sent Lerner’s hard drive to a forensic lab run by the agency’s criminal investigations unit. But the information was not recoverable, a technician told her in an Aug. 5, 2011, email.

Man says apartment complex called his US flag a ‘threat to Muslim community’

WEBSTER, Texas — A Webster man says his apartment complex manager told him his American flag was a “threat to the Muslim community,” Trigger the Voteand that he has to take it down. But he’s not giving up without a fight.

Stepping onto Duy Tran’s balcony in Webster, one thing is clear: “It means a lot to me,” he said.

He’s talking about his American flag that he proudly put up when he moved in just a few days ago. But then an apartment manager at the Lodge on El Dorado told him he had to take it down.

“What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” said Tran. “I’m not a threat toward anybody.”

We tried to ask a manager if that’s exactly what was said, but she just handed us a statement, refused to answer any questions, and called an officer to escort us off the property, before we could press any further:

“While the Lodge on El Dorado admires our resident’s patriotism, we must enforce our property rules and guidelines. Such guidelines

maintain the aesthetics of our apartment community and provide for the safety of all residents. The apartment community already proudly displays our country’s flag in a safe and appropriate manner at the entrances to our community.”

But we saw other patriotic symbols hanging from other balconies in the complex, and Tran doesn’t plan to budge.

“I’m gonna leave my flag there, as an American, until she shows me proof that I don’t have the right to leave my flag there,” said Tran.

To Tran it’s about so much more than stars and stripes.

“I have friends that died for this country,” he said.

So he says this fight is the least he can do.

We have not heard of any residents complaining about any flags at the complex, or any of the patriotic items we saw. In fact, we spoke to several neighbors who say they want Tran’s flag to stay

Shocker: Seized Benghazi suspect worked for U.S.


http://www.wnd.com/2014/06/shocker-seized-benghazi-suspect-worked-for-u-s/#XiSHlHAJjWKA9gC3.99

Aligned with American interests against Gadhafi regime

Published: 23 hours ago

author-image
Aaron Klein is WND’s senior staff reporter and Jerusalem bureau chief. He also hosts “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on Salem Talk Radio.

Benghazi

TEL AVIV – Benghazi suspect Ahmed Abu Khattallah, seized by the U.S. on Sunday, once served as a key conduit in an effort staged by the U.S. Trigger the Voteand Arab interests to aid insurgents fighting in Libya and later in Syria, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials.

It was not immediately clear whether Khattallah himself worked directly with the Americans or if he knew he was part of an effort that involved the U.S..

He did, however, receive funds for his participation in a nexus coordinated by the U.S., Saudis, Turkey and other Arab countries to recruit the fighters that ultimately toppled Muammar Gadhafi’s regime, the security officials said.

Khattallah, the senior leader of the Benghazi branch of the Ansar al-Sharia terrorist organization, was later instrumental in helping to recruit fighters from inside Libya to travel to Syria to aid in the insurgency targeting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime in 2011, the officials said.

Khattallah’s participation came to a grinding halt following the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks in which he is accused of participating.

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

Ansar al-Sharia was not yet declared a terrorist organization by the State Department during the period of Khatallah’s alleged work to help recruit Mideast rebels.

Prior to the Benghazi attacks, the U.S. relationship with those linked to Khattalah’s group was so comfortable that it was the February 17th Martyrs Brigade, an Ansar al-Sharia offshoot, that officially served as the armed quick reaction force within the U.S. Special Mission in Benghazi.

In August 2013, almost one year after the assault, the U.S. filed the first criminal charges in the Benghazi attack against Khatallah, who was placed by witnesses at the scene during the initial assault on the U.S. Special Mission.

Khatallah’s al-Qaida-linked Ansar al-Sharia group advocates strict Shariah implementation and the creation of the Islamic Caliphate. The group infamously first took credit for the attack in social media while later claiming it “didn’t participate [in the attack] as a sole entity.” Witnesses told the media that not only did they see Ansar al-Sharia men laying siege to the compound, they also spotted vehicles brandishing Ansar al-Sharia’s logo at the scene.

Twelve days after Benghazi attacks, WND first reported on information from Middle Eastern security sources indicating both the U.S. mission and the nearby CIA annex in Benghazi served as a planning center for U.S. aid to rebels in the Middle East, with particular emphasis on shipping weapons to jihadists fighting the Assad regime in Syria.

Egyptian and other Middle Eastern sources said that just after the attacks that Ambassador Chris Stevens himself played a central role in recruiting and vetting jihadists and coordinating arms shipments to the gunmen fighting Assad’s regime in Syria.

Stevens’ original role in Libya was to serve as the main interlocutor between the Obama administration and the rebels based in Benghazi.

The news media churned out numerous reports of U.S.-coordinated arms being funneled to the anti-Gadhafi rebels starting at about the time Stevens arrived in Libya.

In December 2012, the New York Times reported the Obama administration “secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year.”

The article went on to say that the weapons and money from Qatar “strengthened militant groups in Libya, allowing them to become a destabilizing force since the fall of the Gadhafi government.” The weapons came from Qatar and not the United States, according to the Times.

In March 2011, Reuters exclusively reported Obama had signed a secret order authorizing covert U.S. government support for the rebel forces in Libya seeking to oust Gadhafi, quoting U.S. government officials.

Also that month, the U.K.-based Independent reported that “the Americans have asked Saudi Arabia if it can supply weapons to the rebels in Benghazi.”

The Times reported on March 25, 2013, that after the fall of Gadhafi, the U.S. began to coordinate aid, including weapons shipments, to the Syrian rebels in early 2012.

The Times reported in its March 2013 article the weapons airlifts to Syria began on a small scale and continued intermittently through the fall of 2012, expanding into a steady and much heavier flow later that year.

From offices at “secret locations,” American intelligence officers “helped the Arab governments shop for weapons … and have vetted rebel commanders and groups to determine who should receive the weapons as they arrive,” according to the report.

The CIA declined to comment to the Times on the shipments to Syria or its role in them.

“The Obama Administration trained, armed and supported the same terrorist that formed ISIS. Why did they think it so important to topple the Muammar Gadhafi’s regime? Why was it so important to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime in 2011? What business was it of ours? What national interests did that have? What threat did they pose with the United States? Why didn’t they learn from history that whenever we have done this in the past, it has ALWAYS COME BACK TO BIT US IN THE ASS?’

“President Obama is not s stupid man. Arrogant yes, but not stupid. He is not a ignorant man. Full of himself, YES, but not ignorant. So why all the support of Islamic interests while he puts down America, filters out all the military personnel that said they would not fire on American citizens in America and deliberately build his own civilian Army as he said he would do in 2008? Is the picture getting clearer now?” JB

DHS Adviser Says Caliphate’s Return Inevitable


http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/06/16/DHS-Adviser-Says-Caliphates-Return-Inevitable

16 Jun 2014 231 post a comment

ConfusedA member of President Obama’s Homeland Security Advisory Council known for controversial Twitter posts that seem to support the Muslim Brotherhood wrote Friday that it is “inevitable that ‘Caliphate’ returns.”

Mohamed Elibiary has been controversial since he was first appointed to the taskforce in 2010. He was closely associated with Shukri abu Baker, former executive director of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development–one of five people convicted for illegal Hamas support in 2008. Elibiary argued that there was a “lack of evidence” in the HLF case and suggested that it was a political prosecution.

He previously praised the late Muslim Brotherhood ideologue Sayyid Qutb, whose ideas have undergirded the modern jihadist movement–especially his call for violent jihad and for the purification of Islam from the forces of unbelief–on Twitter.

“Are you getting this? This is a man in the Obama Administration. Now read the previous paragraph again and ask yourself who our president supports. If you need help with that answer, then you have a lot to learn.” JB

Qutb believed that if the Caliphate–abolished in 1924–ever were to be re-established, that a vanguard would need to replace the regime of one country with an Islamic state, much as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) aims to do in Iraq and Syria.

Baghdad served as the capital of the Abbasid Caliphate from 762 A.D. until the city was sacked by the Mongols in 1258 A.D.

#Silly. As I’ve said b4 inevitable that ‘Caliphate’ returns. Choice only whether we support #EU like Muslim Union vision or not,” Elibiary wrote in response to question from David Reaboi, who formerly worked for the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C., about the ISIS rampage through Iraq last week.

Elibiary responded to a question from Reaboi asking if there was a need to be “outraged” about CNN reports about religious restrictions ISIS was imposing in Iraq.

#CNN just broadcast list of #ISIS hudod rules [acceptable behavior]. Reminds me of how we were outraged pre 9/11 by #Taliban banning white socks 4 women. #Iraq,” Elibiary wrote.

Reaboi then asked Elibiary if he supported restoring the caliphate, but Elibiary declined to give him a direct answer. Instead, he suggested that conservatives, including the Investigative Project on Terrorism, had misread the lessons of 9/11.

“Y’all in the #NatSec ubber hawks camp misread 9/11 & should reassess ur belligerence. #CSP #IPT #Blaze,” Elibiary tweeted.

Elibiary earned the ire of the Coptic community last fall after he sent out a series of offensive tweets. He also drew criticism in November for describing America as an “Islamic country” with an “Islamically compliant constitution.”

Considering Elibiary’s history, this exchange about a return of the Islamic Caliphate is unlikely to be his last controversial Twitter post.

US flying F-18 surveillance missions over Iraq, Obama reviews options with lawmakers

The United States is flying F-18 surveillance missions over Iraq from an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, officials confirm to Fox News, as

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

President Obama weighs options for “increased security assistance” in the country. 

The surveillance missions are being launched from the USS George HW Bush. It was already known that the Obama administration had authorized “manned and unmanned” surveillance flights, but F-18’s are not traditional surveillance aircraft — they are attack aircraft. 

“It’s not so much about looking as it is being seen,” a U.S. official told Fox News. 

Obama is thought to be leaning away from pursuing airstrikes in Iraq, as the Iraqi government and Shiite militias battle Sunni militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. But, after the president met Wednesday afternoon with top congressional leaders in the Oval Office, the White House confirmed Obama still is weighing various military options. 

The White House said Obama reviewed with lawmakers “our efforts to strengthen the capacity of Iraq’s security forces to confront the threat from [ISIS], including options for increased security assistance.” 

ISIS, an offshoot of Al Qaeda, has seized Mosul, Tikrit and other Iraqi towns as members of the Iraqi military abandon their posts. The Iraqi Trigger the Votegovernment reportedly has appealed for the Obama administration to launch airstrikes. 

While officials say no decisions have been made, one senior official told Fox News that the president appears to be leaning toward sending roughly 100 special forces into the region. Such a contingent presumably would be sent to help train the Iraqi military and boost intelligence available to the Iraqis. 

Obama met for about an hour Wednesday afternoon with the top four congressional leaders, none of whom revealed many details about what was said. 

An aide to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell reiterated that ISIS poses a “grave threat to U.S. interests” and appealed to the president — as did House Speaker John Boehner — to come up with a plan. 

“Unfortunately, Iraqi security forces are now less capable than when the president withdrew the entirety of our force without successfully negotiating a remaining U.S. presence capable of preserving our gains and mentoring our partners,” the aide said. “It is critical that we protect Americans, our allies and our interests.” 

“Have we forgotten the Stinger Missiles ISIS now has to use? President Obama is sending our F-18’s in there to get shot down? Yes, I know the range of those missiles. 2 miles. Any more comments?” JB

ConfusedThe president likely used his meeting to take congressional leaders’ pulse on the Iraq options, recognizing that his Democratic colleagues may be a tougher sell. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi has voiced concern about any U.S. involvement in the sectarian crisis in Iraq. She and Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid attended, along with McConnell and Boehner. 

More broadly, the Obama administration is pressing for Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to take steps to make his Shiite-dominated government more inclusive. Obama said last week that any short-term U.S. military actions in Iraq would not be successful unless they were accompanied by political changes by the government in Baghdad. 

“President Obama’s answer is always “being more inclusive”. To Leftists that means agree with them in everything. No exceptions. He has a lot of nerve to be suggesting an action he refuses to apply.” JB

The efforts of U.S. intelligence have been hindered by the withdrawal of American forces from Iraq in 2011 and the ongoing Syrian civil war, which has left large parts of both countries off-limits to operatives. 

The Associated Press reported Wednesday that U.S. intelligence analysts are working to track the movements of key figures in the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. They are sifting through data provided by Jordanian, Saudi, Turkish and other intelligence services, as well as their own human sources, satellites, drones and communications intercepts by the National Security Agency, U.S. intelligence officials say. 

The CIA and other agencies are assembling detailed dossiers known as “targeting packages” that amount to profiles of insurgent commanders, including as much day-to-day information as can be gathered about their location, movements, associates and communications. Those packages can be used to target the subjects for drone strikes or other military action, though they also can be used for nonlethal purposes, current and former officials say.

Glenn Beck revisits his warnings about Iraq


http://conservativebyte.com/2014/06/glenn-beck-revisits-warnings-iraq/

Posted on by Conservative Byte

Caliphate-Coming

It is amazing how easy it is to predict the Obama implosions.
Check it out:

Glenn will be digging up some of the chalkboards and infographics he drew up during his Fox News days to break down what is currently unfolding in Syria, Iraq, and throughout the Middle East. Glenn has been talking about likelihood of an Islamic caliphate, or state, for a number of years, and now, as Baghdad hangs in the balance, it looks like the rest of the media is taking notice.

Because of the life that has already been lost fighting Islamic extremists in Iraq, Pat was frank in his explanation of why he would like to see American troops on the ground in Baghdad.

“Got to send 5,000 to 10,000 troops back in there,” Pat said. “You have to defend it, beat this back. You have to go all out and kill these guys. They are bloodthirsty murders, the worst of the worst. What has the last twelve years been about?”

“You know what it’s been about,” Glenn interjected. “It’s been about control, power, and manipulation. It is about building a base there in Iraq.”

“[But] you are going to lose that,” Pat added. “It just falls into the hands of these dirt bags.”

While Glenn recognizes that it is nearly impossible to reconcile the idea that the sacrifice made in Iraq was for naught, he absolutely will not support the deployment of American military personnel. In fact, he “hopes to God we detonate” we detonate the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.

Sunni Islam (/ˈsni/ or /ˈsʊni/) is the largest branch of Islam; its adherents are referred to in Arabic as ahl as-sunnah wa l-jamāʻah (Arabic: أهل السنة والجماعة‎), “people of the tradition of Muhammad and the consensus of the Ummah” or ahl as-sunnah (أهل السنة) for short. In English, they are known as Sunni Muslims, Sunnis, and Sunnites. Sunni Islam is the world’s second largest religious body, after Christianity [1] and largest religious denomination for any religion in the world. Sunni Islam is sometimes referred to as the orthodox version of the religion.[2][3] The word “Sunni” is believed to come from the term Sunnah (Arabic: سنة‎), which refers to the sayings and actions of the Islamic prophet Muhammad as recorded in hadiths.[4]

The primary collections consisting of Kutub al-Sittah accepted by Sunni orthodoxy, in conjunction with the Quran and binding consensus, form the basis of all jurisprudence within Sunni Islam. Laws are derived from these basic sources; in addition, Sunni Islam’s juristic schools recognize differing methods to derive verdicts such as analogical reason, consideration of public welfare and juristic discretion.

The Shia (Arabic: شيعة‎ Shīʿah) represent the second largest denomination of Islam and adherents of Shia Islam are called Shias or the Shi’a as a collective or Shi’i individually.[1] Shi’a is the short form of the historic phrase Shīʻatu ʻAlī (شيعة علي) meaning “followers”, “faction” or “party” of Muhammad‘s son-in-law and cousin Ali, whom the Shia believe to be Muhammad’s successor in the Caliphate. Twelver Shia (Ithnā’ashariyyah) is the largest branch of Shia Islam and the term Shia Muslim is often taken to refer to Twelvers by default. Shia Muslims constitute 10-20% of the world’s Muslim population and 38% of the Middle East‘s entire population.[2]

Shi’i Islam is based on the Quran and the message of the Islamic prophet Muhammad attested in hadith recorded by the Shia, and certain books deemed sacred to the Shia (Nahj al-Balagha).[3][4] Shia consider Ali to have been divinely appointed as the successor to Muhammad, and as the first Imam. In the centuries after the death of Muhammad, the Shia extended this “Imami” doctrine to Muhammad’s family, the Ahl al-Bayt (“the People of the House”), and certain individuals among his descendants, known as Imams, who they believe possess special spiritual and political authority over the community, infallibility, and other quasi-divine traits.[5]

Although there are myriad Shi’i subsects, modern Shi’i Islam has been divided into three main groupings: Twelvers, Ismailis and Zaidis.[6][7][8][9]

The Kurdish people, or Kurds (Kurdish: کورد, Kurd), are an ethnic group in Western Asia, mostly inhabiting a region known as Kurdistan, which includes adjacent parts of Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey.

They are an Iranian people and speak the Kurdish languages, which are members of the Iranian branch of Indo-European languages.[31] The Kurds number about 30 million, the majority living in West Asia, with significant Kurdish diaspora communities in the cities of western Turkey, in Armenia, Georgia, Israel, Azerbaijan, Russia, Lebanon and, in recent decades, some European countries and the United States.

The Kurds have had partial autonomy in Iraqi Kurdistan since 1991. Nationalist movements in the other Kurdish-populated countries (Turkey, Syria, Iran) push for Kurdish regional autonomy or the creation of a sovereign state.

Why isn’t Mrs. Bergdahl wearing a burka? JB

  Ann Coulter

While the Obama administration tortures the Benghazi raid suspect into a false confession that a YouTube video made him attack our embassy,

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

let’s review what his “capture” is meant to distract us from:

(1) The IRS’ Lois Lerner claims her computer crashed, destroying all her emails to the White House, congressional Democrats and the Department of Justice, at the very height of the IRS’ targeting of tea party groups. Six other IRS officials now claim their emails are also missing. (Have they tried shutting down their computers and restarting?)

Rosemary Woods erased part of a White House tape nearly half a century ago, and Chris Matthews is still talking about it.

(2) Soon after he became president, Obama pulled every last troop out of Iraq, despite the fact that the war was over and we had won. Now Iraq is on fire, torn apart by terrorist invaders. We still have more than 100,000 troops in defeated Axis powers Germany, Italy and Japan. But Obama couldn’t leave a few troops in Iraq simply to preserve our victory. Now it’s gone.

(3) In the worse deal in history, Obama traded five hardened terrorists — specifically chosen by the Taliban — for an American who is a probable deserter.

Don’t whine about not “knowing” if Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was a deserter. It’s not a big secret. The Pentagon investigated Bergdahl’s Trigger the Votedisappearance back in 2010 and concluded that he had walked away from his unit of his own free will. This guy did everything but fill out one of those “change of address” postcards redirecting his mail to the local Taliban post office.

The left has reacted to the embarrassing truth about Bergdahl by:

(a) Denouncing Republican congressmen who initially posted happy tweets about Bergdahl’s release, and then deleted those tweets — probably on orders from Fox News!

(b) Accusing Bergdahl’s displeased Army comrades of “swiftboating.”

Yes, exactly. This is precisely what “swiftboating” is: The truth about a serviceman from the people who actually served with him. Similarly, the attacks on John Kerry came from the men he served with, not the Republican Party.

To the contrary, John McCain, who never served with Kerry, called the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth “dishonest and dishonorable.” (You nominated him!) President Bush requested that they take their ads off TV.

The only prominent Republican to defend the Swifties was former Sen. Bob Dole — a genuine World War II hero — who told CNN:

“One day (Kerry’s) saying that we were shooting civilians, cutting off their ears, cutting off their heads, throwing away his medals or his ribbons. The next day he’s standing there, ‘I want to be president because I’m a Vietnam veteran.’ Maybe he should apologize to all the other 2.5 million veterans who served. He wasn’t the only one in Vietnam.”

It is precisely because the truth about Bergdahl didn’t come out until after he had been released that Republican members of Congress initially sent out those “Welcome back!” tweets. They didn’t know the truth about Bergdahl, and neither did most people, until his fellow soldiers spoke up. Even people in his own hometown ended up canceling a Bergdahl homecoming celebration in response to the accusations of his platoon.

Bergdahl’s comeuppance didn’t come from some right-wing Wizard of Oz in the fevered brains of MSNBC hosts: It came from members of Bergdahl’s own unit in Afghanistan.

The reason these soldiers hadn’t said anything until Bergdahl’s release was that, as a condition of leaving Afghanistan, they were required to sign gag orders prohibiting them from discussing Bergdahl. (It’s strange; liberals usually don’t like gag orders, but they don’t seem to mind this one.)

After Bergdahl’s release — heralded by a ceremony in the Rose Garden that included a shout-out to the Taliban — the soldiers decided those agreements were moot.

It apparently never occurred to Obama that the troops Bergdahl abandoned would not be popping champagne corks at the news of his release. (Nor did it occur to Rolling Stone. The 2012 article about Bergdahl spoke of the “hope” of Bowe’s old unit that “a deal could get done” with the Taliban for his safe return. Remember the good old days when you could get reliable military intel from a left-wing music magazine written by half-brights?)

Democrats should just stop talking about the military. Whenever they do, they sound like Republican men talking about rape.

Democrat adventures with the military have included that ridiculous photo of little Mike Dukakis in the tank. There was Bill Clinton’s letter explaining that he needed a nuanced way to dodge the draft during Vietnam in order to “maintain my political viability.” We had John Kerry, who thought it would be a great idea to remind Americans that he was the guy who came back and crapped on his fellow soldiers in Vietnam. John Kerry, reporting for duty.

And now we have Obama, who gazes upon deserter Bowe Bergdahl and thinks his return will be a feel-good American story.

So maybe the guy deserted. Hasn’t Obama pushed girls, gays and transgenders on the military? Why the pushback this time?

The Democrats’ only concept of how to support the troops is to treat them like their other constituent groups — single women, blacks and the poor — and offer them more government benefits.

I’m fairly certain what the troops would really prefer is to be left alone by liberals.

How about no free college tuition — and not forcing the military to accept open homosexuality? How about fewer increases in military pensions — and no Defense Department-funded transgender operation for gay traitor Bradley Manning? How about skimping on PTSD therapists — and no girl generals?

The military doesn’t ask for a lot. Soldiers just want to do their job, which is to kill people and break things, not to be nurturing to women, gays and traitors.

The troops don’t complain much, but when they do, there is nothing more devastating than a real “swiftboating.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) (AP photo)

(CNSNews.com) – “You cannot win a battle against radical Islamic terrorism if you’re unwilling to utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism,'” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said on Tuesday.

Coincidentally, on the same day Cruz made that comment, Secretary of State John Kerry said that “extreme poverty” breeds terrorism. Really 01

Cruz was talking about the Benghazi attack with CNN’s Erin Burnett on Tuesday evening. He noted that the Obama administration, in explaining the attack to the American people, “edited out every reference to al Qaeda and radical Islamic terrorism.”

“And the most consistent error of the Clinton/Obama foreign policy is a failure to understand the nature of the people we’re dealing with, of our enemies.”

cruz

Obama defending muslimsCruz said neither President Obama — nor former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her recent television interviews — is willing to “utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorists.’ They do not understand the radical religious extremism of individuals committed to jihad who had pledged to murder Americans.

“And that leads them to keep making the mistakes over and over and over again, whether it is releasing five senior Taliban terrorists without understanding that these individuals will likely return to active warfare against the United States; whether it is in the case of Iraq, not understanding the threat posed by ISIS.”

As if to prove Cruz’s point, Secretary of State John Kerry told a conference in Washington earlier on Tuesday that poverty is the problem and “energy policy” is the solution: Really 01

“The world is waiting for people to be put to work,” Kerry told a conference on oceans at the State Department: “We have extreme poverty; we have terrorism that comes out of it. We have any number of problems that could be cured by energy policy that makes sense”.

Christians/Jews Criticized For Millennia: Time For Muslims To Buck UP!!


http://clashdaily.com/2014/06/christians-jews-endured-criticism-millennia-time-muslims-buck/#i5wCOkLL2UjQxSZQ.99

Written by Audrey Russo on June 18, 2014

You grow up the day you have your first real laugh — at yourself.” ~ Ethel Barrymore

Christians understand freedom. It is one of the benefits of the Judeo-Christian Scriptures that were the foundation of our great Republic. Christians/Jews allow others to live in freedom to choose how to worship, if they choose to worship. They have been criticized, mocked, demeaned and their beliefs blasphemed for millennia. It has NEVER been necessary for the government to infringe upon and crush those who criticize an ideology…until Islam.

angry 05The Islamic world is stuck on “machismo” yet when it comes to their feelings, they appear to be SO super- sensitive that they must control the entire non-Muslim world from giving them a boo-boo on their itty-bitty hearts. And they are attempting this by intense pressure at the United Nations (via the Organization of Islamic Cooperation) for laws that just so HAPPEN to comply with Islamic Sharia Law. Blasphemy Laws (controlling speech) command ALL peoples submit to Islamic Law, whether believer or unbeliever (kafir, infidel).

Leaders of the two most populous Muslim countries (Indonesia and Pakistan) have argued vigorously that insults against Muhammed, Islam’s Mohamed-Elibiary-Got-Quran_thumb1-300x228prophet, incite violence and are not legitimate free speech. This coming from the “arbiters” of free speech…Muslim States are the greatest draconian, dictatorial regimes on earth, next to their twin: Communist countries. Even the dubious leader of the Free World, Barack Obama, joined the chorus of hate against free speech at the UN in Sept. 2012, when he stunningly said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

Confused

And tragically, Leftists worldwide are happily aiding them on their freedom-crushing course.

A little info for Leftist-poisoned minds: We do not have a right NOT to be offended in this country. Freedom of speech is an inestimable gift that must be respected to be appreciated. And it is a mature matter that should be handled by adults who don’t whine and cry like infants the moment someone steps on their rhetorical toes. Respecting free speech is allowing others to have their voice…whether we agree with them, or not. This concept is foreign to an ideology created by a control-freak named Muhammed, who used the tactics now made an art by the Left: Fool them by their feelings (because if they can get you to bypass your brain, they win).

Bulletin to the followers of Islam: It’s now the 21st century…and Islam must step into it…or slither back into its ominous orifice in the earth. It’s time to buck-up…grow a thick skin on those feeble feelings and enjoy the freedom that Judeo-Christian precepts have established. A whole new world lives outside the iron-fisted burqa of Islam’s ideology…

It’s time to grow up…and enjoy your first real laugh…at yourself!

The Collapsing Obama Doctrine

Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.

By Dick Cheney And Liz Cheney

Updated June 17, 2014 7:34 p.m. ET

As the terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) threaten Baghdad, thousands of slaughtered Iraqis in their wake, it is worth recalling a few of President Obama’s past statements about ISIS and al Qaeda.

  • “If a J.V. team puts on Lakers’ uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant” (January 2014).
  • “[C]ore al Qaeda is on its heels, has been decimated” (August 2013).
  • “So, let there be no doubt: The tide of war is receding” (September 2011).

“Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.”

Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. Too many times to count, Mr. Obama

has told us he is “ending” the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—as though wishing made it so. His rhetoric has now come crashing into reality. Watching the black-clad ISIS jihadists take territory once secured by American blood is final proof, if any were needed, that America’s enemies are not “decimated.” They are emboldened and on the march.Dear Mr PresidentThe fall of the Iraqi cities of Fallujah, Tikrit, Mosul and Tel Afar, and the establishment of terrorist safe havens across a large swath of the Arab world, present a strategic threat to the security of the United States. Mr. Obama’s actions—before and after ISIS’s recent advances in Iraq—have the effect of increasing that threat.

cat

On a trip to the Middle East this spring, we heard a constant refrain in capitals from the Persian Gulf to Israel, “Can you please explain what your president is doing?” “Why is he walking away?” “Why is he so blithely sacrificing the hard fought gains you secured in Iraq?” “Why is he abandoning your friends?” “Why is he doing deals with your enemies?”

In one Arab capital, a senior official pulled out a map of Syria and Iraq. Drawing an arc with his finger from Raqqa province in northern Syria to Anbar province in western Iraq, he said, “They will control this territory. Al Qaeda is building safe havens and training camps here. Don’t the Americans care?”

Our president doesn’t seem to. Iraq is at risk of falling to a radical Islamic terror group and Mr. Obama is talking climate change. Terrorists take control of more territory and resources than ever before in history, and he goes golfing. He seems blithely unaware, or indifferent to the fact, that a resurgent al Qaeda presents a clear and present danger to the United States of America. 

Obama defending muslimsWhen Mr. Obama and his team came into office in 2009, al Qaeda in Iraq had been largely defeated, thanks primarily to the heroic efforts of U.S. armed forces during the surge. Mr. Obama had only to negotiate an agreement to leave behind some residual American forces, training and intelligence capabilities to help secure the peace. Instead, he abandoned Iraq and we are watching American defeat snatched from the jaws of victory.

The tragedy unfolding in Iraq today is only part of the story. Al Qaeda and its affiliates are resurgent across the globe. According to a recent Rand study, between 2010 and 2013, there was a 58% increase in the number of Salafi-jihadist terror groups around the world. During that same period, the number of terrorists doubled.

In the face of this threat, Mr. Obama is busy ushering America’s adversaries into positions of power in the Middle East. First it was the Russians in Syria. Now, in a move that defies credulity, he toys with the idea of ushering Iran into Iraq. Only a fool would believe American policy in Iraq should be ceded to Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terror.

This president is willfully blind to the impact of his policies. Despite the threat to America unfolding across the Middle East, aided by his abandonment of Iraq, he has announced he intends to follow the same policy in Afghanistan.

ConfusedDespite clear evidence of the dire need for American leadership around the world, the desperation of our allies and the glee of our enemies, President Obama seems determined to leave office ensuring he has taken America down a notch. Indeed, the speed of the terrorists’ takeover of territory in Iraq has been matched only by the speed of American decline on his watch.

The president explained his view in his Sept. 23, 2009, speech before the United Nations General Assembly. “Any world order,” he said, “that elevates one nation above others cannot long survive.” Tragically, he is quickly proving the opposite—through one dangerous policy after another—that without American pre-eminence, there can be no world order.

It is time the president and his allies faced some hard truths: America remains at war, and withdrawing troops from the field of battle while our enemies stay in the fight does not “end” wars. Weakness and retreat are provocative. U.S. withdrawal from the world is disastrous and puts our own security at risk.

Al Qaeda and its affiliates are resurgent and they present a security threat not seen since the Cold War. Defeating them will require a strategy—not a fantasy. It will require sustained difficult military, intelligence and diplomatic efforts—not empty misleading rhetoric. It will require rebuilding America’s military capacity—reversing the Obama policies that have weakened our armed forces and reduced our ability to influence events around the world.

Who is better offAmerican freedom will not be secured by empty threats, meaningless red lines, leading from behind, appeasing our enemies, abandoning our allies, or apologizing for our great nation—all hallmarks to date of the Obama doctrine. Our security, and the security of our friends around the world, can only be guaranteed with a fundamental reversal of the policies of the past six years.

In 1983, President Ronald Reagan said, “If history teaches anything, it teaches that simple-minded appeasement or wishful thinking about our adversaries is folly. It means the betrayal of our past, the squandering of our freedom.” President Obama is on track to securing his legacy as the man who betrayed our past and squandered our freedom.

Victory and Wake Up Call: Justina Pelletier Gets to Go Home


http://clashdaily.com/2014/06/victory-justina-pelletier-gets-go-home/#mcmGrwj8vErT8DKh.99

justina

Hopefully the final chapter in the saga of an epically overstepping governmental entity, the Pelletier family finally gets to be whole again. Justina is going home! The same judge that grabbed her from her parents for no reason other than they refused to kowtow to “those who know better” has finally signed an order returning her to her parents after 16 months of sticking their nose where it never belonged in the first place.

If you hadn’t heard about Justina before, she is a 16 year old that suffers from a rare mitochondrial disease that affects how the cells in her body produce energy. It causes issues with the gut, brain, muscles, and heart. She was diagnosed at Tufts Medical Center and had been under the care of Dr. Mark Korson, chief of metabolism at Tufts. In February of 2013 Justina got the flu and had to be taken to the hospital. They went to Boston Children’s Hospital’s emergency room because Justina’s Tufts gastroenterologist had recently moved there. BCH was told by Justina’s mom Linda that she had this disorder, where she was diagnosed and who was treating her and how. BCH decided it wasn’t the rare disorder, but somatoform, a psychiatric disorder and took her off all of the treatments that Tufts had put in place… without the involvement or examination by her regular doctor, or by Dr. Korson. When her parents tried to discharge Justina to take her to Tufts, BCH called in state and reported them as medical child abusers.

Justina was put in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families and was moved to a psychiatric unit at BHC. Her parents were then taken to court to determine if they should lose permanent custody. In January of this year they had custody permanently taken from them. Only because the parents refused to sit by quietly and take it was she ever returned to them. They broke court orders mandating that they not speak to the media and took their fight to the Governor of Massachusetts. Did I mention they weren’t even Massachusetts residents? They live in Connecticut. At the end of it all, the only reason the judge gave for giving her back? She didn’t improve over the 16 months they had her. Guess her doctor and parents were right!

police_stateThis is just one of thousands of stories of government entities with too much power over the lives of its citizens. Other parents are threatened with the same thing – loss of their parental rights – if they don’t do exactly what the state deems right. Yes, there are hundreds of thousands of cases where the parents are absolutely wrong: abusive or worse. But there are more and more each year where caring, good parents are subject to this kind of treatment because the powers that be don’t agree with the parents’ politics or religion, or they are just uneducated and won’t admit they don’t know what they are talking about, and they step in and wreak havoc. Proof of this here? Justina’s sister has the same disorder. She was never taken from her parents.

How many good parents are subjected to this because they are strong advocates for their children and challenge those who want to harm their kids? In Justina’s case, a social worker and non-specialist medical staff decided that a diagnosis by an expert in the field was wrong. They didn’t even bother to talk with him to find out about it. They got ticked off because her parents tried to do what was best for their daughter, get her back to the doctor who knew how to treat her, and the egotists took matters into their own hands. They grabbed her, dispensed with her parents, and put her life and health at serious risk. And they were WRONG!

I wonder how many children in Boston were left with actual abusive parents, who died in their care, while these idiots demonized the Pelletier parents? How many millions were spent by the state treating a non-existent psychiatric disorder, in a hospital, while harming the child? How many more were spent on the unnecessary court proceedings? If I was a taxpayer in Massachusetts I’d demand answers to all of those questions.

This whole situation was a failure of epic proportions. Doctors did harm. The state sanctioned it. Now parents everywhere must second guess if they should be vocal and strong advocates for their children. Because chances are, if they are they will have something like this happen. Disgusting!

Supreme Court Agrees to Rule On Limiting First Amendment

Case will directly impact political hyperbole on the internet

Supreme Court Agrees to Rule On Limiting First Amendment

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

FreeSpeech1-300x204The Supreme Court will soon decide if threatening speech posted on the internet is protected by the First Amendment.

The Court said it will hear an appeal from a Pennsylvania man convicted of making threatening comments on Facebook against his estranged wife, elementary schools, judges and the FBI.Anthony Elonis was convicted of transmitting threatening communications in interstate commerce and sentenced to 44 months in prison.

The case is Elonis v. United States.

Mr. Elonis’ lawyers argued an individual should not be convicted of making a threat unless there is evidence he actually intended violence. Elonis said much speech posted on the internet is “inherently susceptible to misinterpretation.” He insisted his posted remarks did not demonstrate a “subjective intent to threaten” based on previous Supreme Court precedent and are protected speech under the First Amendment.

The Justice Department countered by saying Elonis’ argument undermines “one of the central purposes of prohibiting threats,” which is to protect individuals “from the fear of violence and from the disruption that fear engenders.”

According to the government the defendant’s behavior was not merely “careless talk, exaggeration, something said in a joking manner or an outburst of transitory anger. The statements that qualify as true threats (from the defendant) thus have a significant, serious character.”

In the past the Court has ruled laws covering threats must not infringe on the First Amendment. This includes “political hyperbole” one may construe as subjectively threatening and “unpleasantly sharp attacks” that are not in fact true threats.

Eating-Away-the-First-AmendmentIn The Ethics of Liberty Murray Rothbard argues that threats must be “palpable, immediate, and direct” and “embodied in the initiation of an overt act” in order to be considered actual threats. Language, no matter how abusive or subjectively threatening, cannot be regarded as violence.

If the Court rules in favor of the government, the landscape of the internet will change dramatically. Political hyperbole, often uncivil and “unpleasantly sharp,” will become illegal and subject to prosecution.

Last month Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid moved to amend the Constitution in order to limit political speech.

“If ultimately adopted, it would mark the first time in American history that a constitutional amendment rescinded a freedom listed as among the fundamental rights of the American people,” warns Ken Klukowski.

Political speech falling outside the parameters set by the ruling political class constitutes a threat to the establishment. This speech flourishes on the internet, specifically on alternative news media websites.

Many lawmakers may indeed be outraged by the ability of individuals like Anthony Elonis to issue verbal threats over the internet. However, for the elite, the overriding agenda is to limit and outlaw speech that may endanger their hold on political power.
