“UC Davis Student Senator Proud that Islamist Terrorist Group Represented on Campus”

A resolution calling for the University of California at Davis to divest from “corporations that aid in the Israeli occupation of Palestine and illegal settlements in Palestinian territories, violating both international humanitarian law and international human rights” passed on Thursday evening by a vote of 8-2-2. The resolution, sponsored by campus hate group Students for Justice in Palestine, was presented before the student senate and specifically targeted companies Caterpillar Inc., G4S PLC, Veolia Environment and Raytheon.

The pro-Israel community on campus staged a walk-out from the divestment hearing, highlighting the fact that the anti-Semitic resolution was “toxic” and “damaged lives.” However the actual divestment vote was overshadowed by a member of the UC Davis student senate, Azka Fayyaz,  captioning a photo on Facebook that “Hamas & Sharia law have taken over UC Davis. Brb crying over the resilience.”

Hamas is an internationally recognized terrorist organization with the goal of murdering Jews worldwide. The photo features students in favor of divestment gathering around multiple Palestinian flags.Wake up America

The UC Davis student paper, The Aggie, noted that Azka Fayyaz was one of the eight senators to vote in favor of the resolution.

“The student senator’s statement that Hamas and sharia law is taking over UC Davis is alarming,” a Hillel International spokesperson told TruthRevolt. “BDS supporters have aligned themselves with a terrorist entity and an ideology that would impose strict religious-based restrictions on everyone. If this is what BDS is about, it’s even worse than anyone thought. We hope that students of all faiths see this evidence that this is a hate-filled movement.”

In her bid to become a student senator, Fayyaz asserted that she aimed to implement, “a holistic campus calendar to creating a more robust Club Finance Council, and actively working with administration for an expansion of quiet spaces for study, reflection and prayer.” On a separate occasion Fayyaz helped display a poster likening Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Hitler.Islam is NOT

These are the mobsters Imperial President Obama and Al Sharpton are defending. Tell me how’s it’s working for you?

A string of group attacks has taken place in downtown St. Paul in recent weeks. Last Monday, a 23-year-old man and his 56-year-old friend were brutally assaulted by six people in a skyway downtown near Cedar Street.

According to police, a restaurant near the new St. Paul Saints stadium was also rushed by a group of about nine people who started eating and drinking from the customers’ tables.  5 EYEWITNESS NEWS obtained security video that showed a woman in the group suddenly throw a glass of water at another customer. Another man she was with grabbed a cell phone off the table, and then the entire group bolted out the door and down the street, police officials said.

Back in September, a St. Paul police sergeant emailed other officers informing them about a group of nearly 50 juveniles that attacked a juvenile female at the light rail platform near Fifth and Minnesota Street in St. Paul. In the email, the sergeant said the female was beaten unconscious and the fight spilled into a nearby hotel where the group then interrupted and assaulted a wedding party. Some of the wedding party members told officers they would never visit St. Paul events again because of the incident, the email said.

How can anyone say that we are not at the beginning of a Race War? Thanks to Obama/Sharpton/Jackson/Holder stirring the “RACE-POT” so hard and long, the anger is only beginning in it’s growth.

The sergeant concluded his email by saying that these attacks by the group of assailants were “shocking” at their level of violence.

Rev. Graham: Secularists Are ‘Anti-Christ’ and ‘They’ve Taken Control of Washington’


By Michael W. Chapman January 30, 2015

Secularism followed on the heels of communism after the Berlin Wall came down, and the two ideologies are essentially the “same thing” because they are “godless” and “anti-Christ,” said Reverend Franklin Graham, adding that the secularists have “taken control of our country” and “taken control of Washington.”

vidgrAHAM

“We live in a secular society led by people that call themselves progressives,” said Rev. Graham, son of renowned evangelist Billy Graham, at the Oklahoma State Evangelism Conference on Jan. 26. “When communism, the Berlin Wall came down, everybody said, ‘we won,’ and [then] secularism came.”

“Secularism and communism are the same thing,” he said. They’re godless. They’re anti-Christ. So now we have the secularists who’ve taken control of our country. They’ve taken control of Washington. They’ve taken control our city governments, our local governments, our school boards all across the country, and we have just sat back. It’s happened and we haven’t even realized it’s happened.”

He continued, “Now, you say, Franklin, your father [Billy Graham] wouldn’t get on to these subjects. Wait a second. My father, when he was going to school, they had a Bible in school. When he was going to school, they had the Ten Commandments on the wall. When he was going to school, you could pray in school, and the teachers would lead in those prayers.”AMEN

“Our country has changed.,” said Franklin Graham. “ We’ve got to take a stand. We cannot back up, we cannot retreat.”

The reverend, who oversees the organization his father founded, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and the international relief group Samaritan’s Purse, went on to say that Christian men and women must enter the political arena to turn America in the right direction.

“Let me tell you something, the church needs to get involved in politics,” he said.  “Now I’m not talking about Baptist or Republicans and Tea Party – I don’t even know who they are – but I have no confidence that any of these politicians or any party is going to turn this country around. The only hope for this country is for men and women of God to stand up and take a stand.”AMEN

“We need men and women of God who take these local elections serious, so we can take back these various offices and have men and women of God who believe in the Bible, who stand on the word of God,” said Rev. Graham.  “And let’s send to Washington men and women who believe in God and stand on the word of God and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, who are not afraid.”

“America has changed and it’s not coming back unless the church takes a stand,” he said. There are storms that are coming, and we find ourselves in these storms and many times, we as a church, we run. And we run to the wrong place. You see, Jesus is in the boat [with us]. All we have to do is call Him.”AMEN

“Call on His name,” said Rev. Graham.  “But the secularist and the humanist, no.  You mention the name of Christ and they jump all over you. I get jumped on all the time. I don’t care. I really don’t. I gave my life to Christ.”AMEN

Rev. Franklin Graham, 62, is married, has five children and lives in Boone, N.C. He is the oldest son of Pastor Billy Graham, the most influential evangelical preachers of the last 60 years, whose Christian message has reached an estimated worldwide audience of more than 2 billion people.

2016 Scouting Report: Ben Carson


Ben Carson Freedom Summit

Charlie Neibergall | AP Photo

Note: This is the third installment in a weekly series taking a look at each of the potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates, in alphabetical order, the same way a scout would break down a prospect for a pro sports franchise. For the complete list of the candidates we’ll be scouting click here. Read the previous scouting reports: Jeb Bush, here, and Ted Cruz, here.

…many conservatives first became aware of Carson politically when he deconstructed Obamacare at the National Prayer Breakfast, with President Obama in attendance…

Bio:

Born 9/18/51…his life is a well-known story, and has been the subject of best-selling books and even a movie…born into poverty and grew up with a devoted single mother on the inner city streets of Detroit….overcame the odds to eventually graduate from Yale with a degree in psychology…did his post-graduate work at the University of Michigan medical school…considered one of the world’s foremost neurosurgeons, he’s most famous for performing the first ever successful separation of conjoined twins in 1987…was the youngest division director in the history of Johns Hopkins University…also specializes in oncology and pediatrics…sits on the board of directors for several prestigious companies, including Kellogg and Costco…one of the most decorated private citizens in recent American history, including the Presidential Medal Freedom (the nation’s highest civilian honor) he received from President George W. Bush…considered a devout Christian and member of Seventh Day Adventist denomination…he and his wife Candy have been married since 1975 and have three sons: Ben Jr., Rhoeyce, and Murray.

Strengths:

Has been fearless in standing for conservative values and principles in front of even hostile audiences, including criticizing the welfare state on the notoriously leftist television show “The View” and clashing with race-baiter Jesse Jackson on Ferguson…along those same lines, many conservatives first became aware of Carson politically when he deconstructed Obamacare at the National Prayer Breakfast, with President Obama in attendance (which earned him accolades from conservative media icon Rush Limbaugh)…obviously has intricate knowledge of the healthcare system and the perils of Obamacare…has let it be known he plans on using his presidential campaign as a platform to confront political correctness and the Left’s divisive race-baiting, which can only help conservatives…unlike a lot of wannabe conservatives, Carson has been willing to defend marriage, which is still a key issue to the conservative base.

Carson is absolutely the All-American success story we envisioned a president should represent. For that reason, I think he’s unassailable in a general election.

Weaknesses:

Having never held political office he has no record, so all we have to go on is what he says and at times his inexperience has already shone through on key conservative issues like the Second Amendment and the sanctity of life…Are the American people willing to take a chance on yet another inexperienced politician for the presidency?…Carson will have to make the case why his life experience has prepared him for the most powerful political office on the planet…Has he seriously thought through the full gamut of issues required of a presidential candidate? For example, he recently admitted he wasn’t familiar with the most hotly-debated piece of legislation in 2013: the Senate’s “gang of 8” amnesty scam.

Analysis:

Think back to when we were kids, and we had an almost majestic view of the office of the presidency. Carson is absolutely the All-American success story we envisioned a president should represent. For that reason, I think he’s unassailable in a general election. None of the demagoguery tactics the Left has used successfully in recent campaigns would work, for Carson’s very life is a repudiation of their Cultural Marxism. He’s virtually unbeatable in a general election for that reason, and also because he expands our coalition into those who may not identify as conservatives but want to believe in American Exceptionalism again. However, his road through the primary process is far more treacherous; for it is there he must initially prove his ideological bona fides in a crowded field of alpha males. And that will be no small task.

Conclusion:

Underestimate Carson 2016 at your own peril. He will be well-funded. His lack of experience may actually play to voters who are increasingly disenchanted with our feckless political class, and are looking for fresh faces. I’ve already seen firsthand how quickly people, even those used to being around big-name politicians, can rally to Carson as a symbol of hope the American Dream is still alive. Carson has something going for him most candidates would kill for: people already like him and want to like him even more. Let’s face it, whether we like it or not, people tend to vote most for who they like. Therefore, it’s up to conservatives to fully vet Carson now and find out where he really stands on the issues, as well as seek to surround him with positive influences.

Are You Aware of the Avalanche of ‘Gay’ Programming Assaulting Your Home?

Posted by avatarLarry Tomczak on 10 January, 2015

Recently my long time friend, Lee Grady, highlighted in print the deaths of notable Christians. Ann B. Davis, beloved actress, was one of them.

Yet at the same time in a publication on newsstands is the headline that she was really a lesbian!

I don’t believe it.

In theaters across America right now is a movie called “Foxcatcher” dealing with the true story of multimillionaire John DuPont’s killing of Olympic wrestler Dave Schultz.

The movie also implies a homosexual relationship between John and Dave’s brother Mark. The latter categorically denies any such involvement.

NFL castaway, Michael Sam, who unashamedly kissed his “lover” on national TV, was interviewed recently by Oprah Winfrey and celebrated the fact that many NFL players call him and admit they’re  gay but  just haven’t come out yet.

Regularly on TV celebrities and “experts” celebrate the “fact” that probably 25-30% of Americans are really gay. Accurate statistics don’t bear this out as the actual figure is somewhere between 2-3%.

“American Idol” is launching its new season amidst declining viewership. Not long ago they featured a commercial to try and spice things up a bit. A handsome hunk was struggling with his electronic device until a hot babe told him about Amazon Kindle. Convinced she had the better product, he invited her to celebrate by joining him and his gay “husband” for a drink.

What’s going on? A lifestyle that Romans 1:24-27 labels as “immoral,” “indecent,” “shameful,” “unnatural” and a “perversion”  bringing a “due penalty” is conveyed to tens of millions of unsuspecting children, teens and parents as normal, acceptable behavior.

The indoctrination and propaganda coming from those advocating a gay lifestyle in our country, classrooms and culture are increasing. All of us need to take note and take action to guard those we love.

We are Being Bombarded!

Awhile ago I was in New York’s Greenwich Village sharing a meal when I engaged my waiter with this question, “Are there a lot of gay people in the Village?” With a sly smile and twinkle in his eye he retorted, “Everybody in the Village is gay!”

Now I didn’t believe his hyperbole for one minute but I know what’s behind that statement. Convey the impression that the LGBTQ lifestyle is simply an alternative way of living that is beautiful, natural and acceptable. God calls it “abominable” and our mission is to convey love and gospel truth in a winsome way to rescue those in deception.

But first, are you really aware of this avalanche sweeping across our society today? It’s not a trickle — it’s a Tsunami!

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for it is light that makes everything visible” (Eph. 5:11-13).

Focus on the Family ministry warns: “The people behind our nightly diet of network and cable programming have a gay agenda.”

Here’s how Hollywood is promoting homosexuality right now:

  • Super-hyped “Empire” series starts with Oscar nominee Terrence Howard having a homosexual son – and he’s a hunk.
  • “Glee” features over five gay characters.
  • Home and remodeling reality shows regularly feature lesbians and gays in partnerships exploring homes.
  • “Modern Family” features a gay couple who married over two episodes recently.
  • “Ellen DeGeneres” celebrates her lesbianism and “marriage” in between appearances of  guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.
  • “Dancing with the Stars” hosts a gay judge and gay couples.
  • “Biggest Loser”  had lesbian Jillian Michaels as a role model coach.
  • “The Good Wife” now has a lesbian/bisexual investigator.
  • “Scandal” has two gays.
  • “2 1/2 Men” just added a lesbian daughter.
  • “Grey’s Anatomy” highlights a lesbian couple with their child.
  • “Survivor” and other reality shows regularly parade homosexuals as contestants.
  • Anderson Cooper boasts openly on TV he’d rather “have sex” with a man plus co-hosts New Year’s Eve festivities nationwide.

GLAAD (The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), GLSEN (The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network), PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), HRC (Human Rights Campaign) and a multitude of other LGBTQ advocacy groups have multimillion-dollar budgets and work aggressively to convince Americans that homosexuality is a beautiful way of life – maybe for your child or grandchild?

What Can We Do?

1. AWARENESS – The above overview  is not exhaustive but intended to alert us to this bombardment hitting our homes.

2. ALTERNATIVES – Purchasing wholesome DVD series and streaming selected programs are great alternatives. The Fugitive, Gunsmoke, Little House on the Prairie, I Love Lucy and other award-winning shows are all available and cheap. My son has two adopted young boys who are growing up with Wally, Larry Mondello, Eddie Haskell and the Beaver and can’t wait till the next episode!

3. ALERTNESS – Stay engaged and alert to  teaching opportunities when unseemly characters “pop up” on the screen. Whether pausing the program for a quick moment of instruction or following up later at bedtime, in the car or at the table, skillfully share on God’s design for a man and a woman and the sanctity of marriage.

Passivity is not an option. Check out how aggressive these well-funded and well-organized groups are in targeting innocent and impressionable children. In elementary schools, high schools, colleges and the media, LGBTQ advocates are extremely deceptive, sophisticated and strategic in working to lead a  generation over the cliff to destruction.

As “salt” and “light” Christians, we represent a bulwark against this tidal wave of unprecedented evil. May all of us be found faithful and vigilant at our posts.

Disturbed yet? State Department hosts Muslim Brotherhood leaders


Written by Allen West on January 29, 2015

Yesterday White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz redefined the Taliban as an “armed insurgency.” He just could not bring himself to say Islamic terrorists. This young fella was straining to remember his assigned talking points about the “Tal-ee-ban.” We reported yesterday how BBC Arabia and Al Jazeera now have a policy of not using the word “terrorists” — after all, we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, or offend the enemy.

Words are one thing, but actions are something else completely. A certain visit to the U.S. State Department must cause every American consternation — well, except for the Islamapologists.com01

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “The State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned leaders this week for a meeting about their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013.”

“One member of the delegation, a Brotherhood-aligned judge in Egypt, posed for a picture while at Foggy Bottom in which he held up the Islamic group’s notorious four-finger Rabia symbol, according to his Facebook page. That delegation member, Waleed Sharaby, is a secretary-general of the Egyptian Revolutionary Council and a spokesman for Judges for Egypt, a group reported to have close ties to the Brotherhood.”Obama Muslim collection

I just don’t have the words to convey my feelings about this. Well I do, but they’re not suitable in mixed company.

Just two days ago, we reported that Obama campaign operatives have been dispatched to Israel to work against Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in the upcoming March elections. And now our State Department is hosting members associated with the original Islamist group, the Muslim Brotherhood. The 1992 Explanatory Memorandum of the Muslim Brotherhood written by Mohammed Akram outlining strategic objectives against America and North America is actually coming true before our very eyes. In fact, I’d like to share this section from the Explanatory Memorandum verbatim:

Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America:
The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miser- able house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no es- cape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.

How can it be that our own State Department is colluding with the enemy and especially after President al-Sisi’s incredible speech on New Years Day? We’ve written here often of the deliberate words and actions of Secretart of State John Kerry, certain Democrat Senators, and the Obama administration against the post-Mohammed Morsi Muslim Brotherhood government. And we all know — well, those of us keeping tabs — that at his 2009 Cairo speech Obama requested Muslim Brotherhood members to be seated front and center.

Is there any challenge to my assertion that Obama is an Islamist sympathizer?

The Free Beacon writes, “The delegation also includes Gamal Heshmat, a leading member of the Brotherhood, and Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a Brotherhood member who served as a parliamentarian from Luxor. Sharaby, the Brotherhood-aligned judge, flashed the Islamist group’s popular symbol in his picture at the State Department and wrote in a caption: “Now in the U.S. State Department. Your steadfastness impresses everyone,” according to an independent translation of the Arabic.”Wake up America

So let me understand this. A Muslim Brotherhood affiliated individual visiting our State Department praised their “steadfastness”? Heck, now I’m personally offended, because “Steadfast and Loyal” is the motto of the 4th US Infantry Division — but it seems to be descriptive of how the Muslim Brotherhood sees our State department.

“Another member of the delegation, Maha Azzam, confirmed during an event hosted Tuesday by the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID)—another group accused of having close ties to the Brotherhood—that the delegation had “fruitful” talks with the State Department. Maha Azzam confirms that ‘anti-coup’ delegation, which includes 2 top [Muslim Brothers], had ‘fruitful’ conversations at State Dept,” Egypt expert Eric Trager tweeted. Assam also said that the department expressed openness to engagement, according to one person who attended the event. Trager, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), told the Washington Free Beacon that the State Department is interested in maintaining a dialogue with the Brotherhood due to its continued role in the Egyptian political scene.”

“The State Department continues to speak with Muslim Brothers on the assumption that Egyptian politics are unpredictable, and the Brotherhood still has some support in Egypt,” he said. “But when pro-Brotherhood delegations then post photos of themselves making pro-Brotherhood gestures in front of the State Department logo, it creates an embarrassment for the State Department.”

Embarrassment? No, it goes far beyond that, it is treasonous. It is aiding and abetting the enemy. It is providing material support and comfort to the enemy.

I invite any of you to read the Muslim Brotherhood’s Explanatory-Memorandum and tell me if what I just stated was wrong. There is no excuse for what happened — just as when the Obama national security team met with an Islamic cleric who once put out a fatwa against American troops — but then again, the same cleric was praised by President Obama during a speech at the United Nations. This should provide a clear window into the mentality of the Obama administration and why it has no compunction about meeting with or negotiating with Islamic terrorists.

So, what will it take America? What will make you finally realize we have a treasonous administration in charge of our country? What will it take for our new GOP Congress — House and Senate — to finally pass a resolution that censures President Barack Obama for his collusion and support to militant Islamic terrorism?

Yes, it is time to take that action — if the policies of President Obama and his administration to enable and support Islamic totalitarians and jihadists continues, something must be done. And there may be another action that should be taken if this clear and present danger within our halls persists. Obama has threatened our Congress with a veto if they pass sanctions against Iran — how many extensions to the talks will have to occur? Obama refuses to define the enemy. As a matter of fact, he shows clear anger and disdain towards any perceived affront to Islam, i.e. “Let me be clear, ISIS is not Islamic” and “The future does not belong to those who defame the prophet of Islam”Obama defending muslims Two

Maybe that’s the reason Obama refused to attend the anti-Islamic terror rally in Paris? Perhaps he agreed with the actions taken against the staff of Charlie Hebdo? I would prefer his definitive explanation instead of allowing me and others to define his actions.

Ladies and gents, we have a serious problem. We have a president and an administration that is comfortable embracing our enemy — that is an issue. The policies and actions support that assertion. Go ahead, prove me wrong. And drones are not a strategy.

I leave you with this well-known interpretation of comments by Marcus Tullius Cicero from his Second Catiline Oration,

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

Remember these prescient words from Edmund Burke, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men (and women) to do nothing.” And there are few greater evils than the Muslim Brotherhood.

High school holds ‘hijab day’ for students


 

Posted By Bob Unruh On 01/29/2015

Article printed from WND: http://www.wnd.com

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges showed up for a meeting with Somali Muslims in a hijab in April of this year.

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges showed up for a meeting with Somali Muslims in a hijab.

A Sacramento, California, high school scheduled a “hijab day” celebrating Islamic law in which Muslims helped school girls don the concealing headscarves. It was at Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep High School, also known as NP3, where officials posted a notice that said: “January 28, 2015. The hijab is a headcovering worn by Muslim women as a symbol of modesty and their devotion to God. GIRLS! Come to the library Wednesday morning and MSA [Muslim Student Association] members will assist you in putting your hijab on. You can bring ANY type of rectangular (or square) scarf that is bought at any store. (If you do not have any scarves, they will be provided for you to borrow for the day.)”

At Jihad Watch, Islam expert Robert Spencer said he had written to Principal Tom Rutten. He pointed out that FBI statistics show that “hate crimes against Muslims, which are never justified, are actually quite uncommon, with hate crimes against Jews being over four times more common.’

“Yet I would venture to guess that there has been no event at NP3 High to call attention to the challenges that Jews face, and that none is in the works.”

Spencer said he understood that NP3 Hijab Day was a student-run event.Picture2

“Would a Jewish or pro-Israel student be allowed to stage a similar day calling attention to anti-Semitism? If this included the rise in Islamic anti-Semitism in Europe and elsewhere, would this be allowed? Would you allow a Yarmulke Day at NP3 High?”

Spencer was responding to a statement sent by the principal to a concerned citizen.

Rutten’s note, apparently forwarded from a student organizer, said: “I wanted to let my classmates and teachers know about the challenges that young Muslim women face when they put on a headscarf. It is unfortunate that a small effort to promote mutual understanding would provoke such a hate-filled and irrational response.”Really with logo

The note continued: “Hijab Day was part of my senior project, meant to bring awareness to my campus about the misconceptions surrounding Islam, particularly those surrounding the headscarf. I invited a speaker to talk to faculty about addressing Islamophobia in the classroom and the challenges in the Muslim world, and they appreciated the open and frank discussion.”

The note then describes Spencer as a “notorious Islamophobe,” citing as a source the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center, which was named in a federal court case as the source of information for a confessed domestic terrorist who attacked a Christian organization in Washington several years ago, intending to kill as many Christians as he could.com01

The “citizen’s note” to the principal, which prompted the student’s diatribe, called the promotion of Islamic law, or Shariah, “outrageous.”

“It’s outrageous primarily because it brought religion into a public school in a way that directly conflicts with the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, which prohibits school-sponsored prayer and religious indoctrination. Encouraging girls and women to wear hijabs for ‘modesty’ is clearly an example of religious indoctrination. Can you imagine the public outrage if a Jewish student requested ‘Yarmulke Day’ and all men and boys at the school were urged to wear a head covering of the type that Jewish men and boys wear?”

The citizen also noted that the Muslim Students Association “is considered by many national security experts to be tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.” “In other words, tied to terrorism.”

A report by BizPacReview raised the question:Does separation of church and state only apply to some religions?” The school did not respond to WND’s request for comment.

At the D.C. Clothesline blog, Islam expert and anti-Shariah campaigner Pamela Geller said: “When I was young, I remember the feminists and the leftists were all ‘burning bras’ during the left’s war on America. It was symbolic of the fight for women’s rights. So instead of a ‘hijab day’ at a California public school, why don’t they ‘burn burkas’ to stand in solidarity with women forced to wear the Islamic garb of shame and oppression?”

She also listed the telephone contact for the principal and the email for the school board.

Imperial President ObamaPresident Obama announced a plan on Sunday to preserve Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge that includes asking the GOP-led Congress to designate more than 12 million acres as a protected wilderness, which includes the potentially oil-rich Coastal Plain. The designation would halt oil exploration in Alaska’s northeast corner and give the region the highest degree of federal protection available to public lands. The refuge’s Coastal Plain has long been at the center of the struggle between conservationists and advocates of greater energy exploration in the United States. And Obama’s efforts to win wilderness designation will likely face stiff resistance in the Republican-controlled Congress.

Alaska’s top elected officials — including Gov. Bill Walker and senior Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, both Republicans — have already reacted angrily at the administration’s moves.

“I have tried to work with this administration, even though they’ve made it extremely difficult every step of the way,” said Murkowski, chairwoman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. “But those days are officially over. We are left with no choice but to hit back as hard as we can.”

Obama announced the move in a 60-second White House video.

“Alaska’s National Wildlife refuge is an incredible place — pristine, undisturbed,” he said. “It supports caribou and polar bears, all manner of marine life, countless species of birds and fish, and for centuries it supported many Alaska native communities. But it’s very fragile.”more evidence

Obama said the move is part of a comprehensive Interior Department plan to protect the refuge and designate new areas for preservation and that he will call on Congress “to make sure they take it one step further” by designating the area as wilderness. If Congress agrees, it would be the largest wilderness designation in the country.Picture1

New Pampers Ad Celebrating Babies : The Most Powerful Pro-Life Video You’ve Ever Seen

While the upcoming Superbowl ads count on puppies and scantily clad women for views, Pampers is counting on something infinitely more precious: babies – both born and unborn.

Pampers’ new ad, “A Newborn Journey of Firsts,” boasts almost 950,000 views on YouTube since its release earlier this month. With the video’s focus on multiple babies, Pampers aims to show how “every first is significant no matter how small they seem” – “[f]rom the first scan to the first cuddle.”

From the beginning, the video shows a sonogram of a baby giving her first “hello” with a heartbeat playing in the background. The ad progresses to show the touching journey of babies’ and parents’ “firsts” together – from “Your first tears of joy” to “Her first word.”

vidpampers

Pampers’ description of the video reads:

From the first scan to the first cuddle, every first is significant no matter how small they seem. For both baby and mom, it’s a journey full of firsts. And there’s nothing more rewarding than experiencing each and every one together.

For the pro-life movement, Live Action News’ Kristi Burton Brown credited the film for showing the “beauty of human life at its various stages.”

But even the pro-choice Huffington Post acknowledged the “dazzling reminder that new parents and their babies are in this thing together” via Caroline Bologna. “The ad captioning reminds parents what makes this crazy ride totally worth it,” she wrote.

It’s impossible to deny the beauty of even these little human beings – and Pampers’ video makes that all the more difficult for the pro-choice media to ignore.

India Gives Obama’s Climate Deal Cold Shoulder

“Rejection comes after $1 billion dollar temptation and apologies.”

LI #17 India Pollut

In an ill-omened trip, Secretary of State John Kerry headed to India to pave the way for a climate change deal, missing the important Paris march against terror. I was skeptical that the Indians would warm to any carbon emissions agreement, given the level of poverty in that country and need to rapidly modernize its industry. He should have listened to me, because he just emitted a whole lot of greenhouse gas for no reason. The Indians rejected the deal.

President Barack Obama has left India for Saudi Arabia without inking a climate deal that formed much of the basis for his second trip to the subcontinent. The Hindustan Times reported on Tuesday that India has refused to embrace the idea of a ‘peaking year’ for greenhouse gas emissions – a designated year after which emissions levels would have to start decreasing.

China agreed to that sort of framework last year, but Indian officials now see being lumped in with Beijing as a negative thing. India is the world’s fourth-biggest carbon emitter. China is number one.

‘Having a peaking year was not acceptable to us,’ an Indian environment ministry official told the Times.

Obama visited India on Air Force One, a plane that burns five gallons of jet fuel for every mile it flies. His round-trip, including a stop in Saudi Arabia, will emit 809 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.Worship manditory

The President did offer the Indians $1 billion to develop green technology to sweeten the deal…which is fascinating, because American green technology ventures sponsored by this administration have been man-made disasters.

The President tried to tempt the Indians with an apology, too:

President Obama apologized for the role the United States has played in global warming during a speech in India, but that didn’t convince the Asian nation to sign a deal to put a limit to future greenhouse gas emissions.

“… the United States recognizes its part in creating this problem, so we’re leading the global effort to combat it…” Obama said during a speech from Sirifort, New Delhi, on Tuesday.Imperial President Obama

In light of his failure, Obama tried to pack a guilt trip for the Indians before he jetted off to Saudi Arabia:

“I know the argument made by some – that it’s unfair for countries like the United States to ask developing nations and emerging economies like India to reduce your dependence on the same fossil fuels that helped power our growth for more than a century,” Mr. Obama told an audience of 1,500 mostly young Indians at Siri Fort Auditorium on the final day of his trip here.

“But here’s the truth,” he added. “Even if countries like the United States curb our emissions, if countries that are growing rapidly like India with soaring energy needs don’t also embrace cleaner fuels, then we don’t stand a chance against climate change.”kingobamafingerconstitution-300x204

Between the gaffe-tastic gum chewing and the cold reception to the climate change deal, it confirms that the bad signs during Kerry’s trip were real portents of more #SmartPower failures.

Ann Coulter Letter: “How much is that psychology degree worth?”


Written by Ann Coulter  | Wednesday Jan 28, 2015

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://humanevents.com/2015/01/28/how-much-is-that-psychology-degree-worth/?utm_source=coulterdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl

How much is that psychology degree worth?

The Republican leadership in Congress still hasn’t held hearings on why college is so expensive, although I proposed the idea two weeks ago. Of course, it’s been a month since the GOP took control of Congress, and they also haven’t voided Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty, passed e-Verify, a fence bill, or the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Act.

Democrats are on offense all the time, even when they’ve just had their legs cut off. They announce absurd agenda items and then indignantly demand to know why Republicans are refusing to deal with the free unicorn-rides proposal. Obama is a lame-duck president and, three months ago, his party was slaughtered in midterm elections. And yet, I gather that his State of the Union address consisted of a litany of insanely expensive, utterly pointless ideas.

And Republicans fall for it every time. They consider it a major victory to come back with a free-market approach to surrender.

In response to Obama’s “free” community college idea, Republicans should say: We’re not giving you anything, and, in fact, we’re demanding answers from the entire “higher ed” establishment. You’ll be surprised how liberating and fun it is to go on offense, Republicans.

The GOP needs to hold tobacco company-style hearings, hauling in the presidents of various universities and asking them to justify their multimillion-dollar salaries.

We want professors explaining, under penalty of perjury, exactly how much they make per hour for their rigorous schedules of two classes a week, summers off, and full-year “sabbaticals” every few terms.

Also, we’d like to know how driving the getaway car for a cop-killer constitutes a qualification to teach college.

College professors relentlessly hound the rest of society for its crimes — racism, sexism, “white privilege” – look what you’re doing to the environment! Why are we paying them, again? There’s no visible reason most of these people should be teaching at all. How about they explain their value to the taxpayers who subsidize their cushy lives?

Other than engineers, economists, and quarterbacks, no one acquires any marketable knowledge at college. The sole purpose of a degree is to function as a substitute IQ test. If employers were allowed to give applicants 15-minute intelligence tests, they’d have the exact same information as knowing what college a person attended.

But they can’t do that, so families have to spend a quarter of a million dollars to give their kids the parchment equivalent of an IQ score. High school kids who get into good schools should present employers with their college acceptance letters and skip the going-to-college part.

Republicans need to force colleges to issue reports, just like drug companies, attesting to the average cost, and the average salary, for every degree. It will cost you $160,000 to receive a degree in Spanish literature and will take you 88 years to pay that back.

Trust Ann — liberals will go wild. That’s how you’ll know you’ve struck gold.

They will scream bloody murder, accuse Republicans of “McCarthyism,” say it’s too burdensome to collect this information and how can you put a dollar value on a college education?

They better be able to put a dollar value on a college degree! That’s how it’s being sold. Obama doesn’t say it’s important to go to college to learn to think analytically, read critically, or be exposed to different ideas — none of which occurs at most colleges, anyway.

No, that’s not the pitch. The pitch is: You’re going to fail in this economy without a college degree!

If colleges really believe their product is worth anything, why don’t they guarantee their own student loans? Why should taxpayers be on the hook for everyone’s tuition?

According to the colleges, their graduates are going to earn all sorts of money! At least that’s what they say when they’re conning teenagers into taking out colossal student loans.

“It’s burdensome” is not an excuse accepted by the government in any other context. It doesn’t work for businesses being forced to come up with reams of information for the IRS, the EPA or OSHA. And the taxpayer isn’t on the hook for the deceptive promises of any other industry — except hucksters for home mortgages and student loans.

I would like to hear college presidents explain that what they do is totally different from any other company.

Democrats need to be exposed as hustlers for the most fraudulent, overpriced scam in the country. There’s no other industry that has politicians flacking for it, much less conniving to prevent consumers from getting truthful information about the merchandise.

Going after Big Education is all upside for the GOP. College professors and administrators already vote 98 percent for the Democrats. In fact, it’s a triple-play for Republicans: They would punish a liberal constituency, strike a blow against the principal vehicle of liberal indoctrination in America, and the middle class will love it.AMEN

Failing Grade in History


This issue is even more pronounced in my thinking at this time since the  Marine whose daughter (in La Plata, Middle New WhatDidYouSay Logoschool ) received a failing grade in history because she refused to take the Islam study course. No alternative course was offered. 

Her marine father brought this to the forefront since he fought in Iraq and Afghanistan , and is very aware of how dangerous this religion is and that is definitely not one of peace.  

D.L., Norcross, GA 

When we get 100,000,000, that’s one hundred million willing Christians to BOND together, voice their concerns and vote, we can take back America with God’s help. Become one of the One hundred million… Then let’s get 200 million. It can be done by all of us getting off our apathy to vote, write letters and share messages like this. 

God Bless America and Shine your light on Her! 

  • In 1952 President Truman Established one day a year as a “National Day of Prayer.”
  • In 1988 President Reagan Designated the first Thursday in May of each year as The National Day of Prayer.
  • In June 2007 (then) Presidential Candidate Barack Obama Declared that the USA “Was no longer a Christian nation.”
  • In 2009 President Obama canceled the 21st annual National Day of Prayer ceremony at the White House under the ruse of “not wanting to offend anyone”
  • HOWEVER… On September 25, 2009 From 4 AM until 7 PM, A National Day of Prayer FOR THE MUSLIM RELIGION Was Held on Capitol Hill, inside the White House. There were over 50,000 Muslims In D.C. that day. PRESIDENT OBAMA PRAYS WITH THE MUSLIMS!  

I guess it doesn’t matter if “Christians” were offended by this event. We obviously don’t count as “anyone” anymore. 

Now President Obama is encouraging schools to teach the Quran for extra credit, while at the same time, they cannot even talk about the Bible, God, pray, or salute the American Flag.  

The direction this country is headed should strike fear in the heart of every Christian Patriot, especially knowing that the Muslim religion believes that if Christians cannot be converted, they should be annihilated.  

Now a decision has to be made. Are you going to share this, or delete it while returning your head into the sand?

Woman Sold Her Baby for Sex Multiple Times, Man Took Porn Images of Child


by Steven Ertelt | Gary, IN | LifeNews.com | 1/28/15

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.lifenews.com/2015/01/28/woman-sold-her-baby-for-sex-multiple-times-man-took-porn-images-of-child/

Last year, an Indiana woman admitted to authorities to selling her baby for sexual relations multiple times. Natisha Hillard, then 25, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court on accusations that she sold her baby to a man for sex multiple times and was present for all but one of the transactions. Reports indicate Hillard pleaded guilty to one count of selling a child for sex and two counts of allowing a child to take part in child pornography.

Hillard admitted under questioning by her attorney, Visvaldis Kupsis, that she met Christopher M. Bour through a dating service in 2011 and that they agreed to meet at her place. That was when Bour started asking her about two children she had access to, both girls, who were 4 months and 3 years old at the time. The crimes lasted from September 2011 until February 2013, when an acquaintance of Bour alerted the FBI that he had been asking her to take part.

She agreed with statements by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jill Koster that she can be seen on images found on Bour’s computer showing him sexually touching the child with Hillard in the background. She also let Bour take sexual pictures of the older child at least once, Koster said. Koster said that Hillard told law enforcement after she was arrested that she agreed to sell the children to Bour because she needed money and that Bour paid her extra for the last encounter to be alone with child.

natisha2

Now, Bour has been ordered to pay the child restitution in the case:

A man convicted of purchasing an infant and using her and her sister to make child pornography was ordered Monday to pay $75,000 in restitution to the girls for mental health counseling.

Christopher Bour, 41, argued he owed no restitution in part because he didn’t distribute the pornography and the girls are unlikely to remember the abuse because of their young ages.

U.S. District Judge Rudy Lozano found Bour’s defense that he didn’t distribute the pornography to be “ludicrous.”

Lozano also cited a licensed clinical psychologist’s report, which said that while an infant “may not retain a ‘cognitive memory’ of their abusive experiences, they are likely to sustain numerous later difficulties based on that ‘betrayal in infancy.’” The psychologist said support from a mental health professional is essential for a person who was sexually abused or exploited as a child to deal with possible reactions to the abuse.

A letter written by the psychologist estimates each girl will need counseling once a week for five to 10 years. Each session typically costs $125, the letter says.

Lozano ordered about $8,300 in proceeds from the sale of Bour’s Gary home to be surrendered as a partial restitution payment.

Lozano sentenced Bour in May to life in prison. He is incarcerated at the U.S. Penitentiary Tuscon in Arizona.

The girls’ mother, Natisha Hillard, was sentenced in June to more than 24 years in prison for her role in the abuses. Hillard agreed to pay $12,500 in restitution for each of the girls.

After struggling to paint the Bergdahl swap as a means of “leaving no man behind,” Schultz responded,
“I would also point out that the Taliban is an armed insurgency and [the Islamic State] is a terrorist group. So we don’t make concessions to terrorist groups.”more evidence
Karl followed up by asking, “You don’t think the Taliban is a terrorist group?”
Like a deer stuck in the headlights, Schultz tried to qualify, “I don’t think the Taliban, uh… the Taliban is an armed insurgency. This was the winding down of the war in Afghanistan and that’s why this arrangement was dealt.”com01
The Obama Administration has retained some of their harshest rebukes and inflammatory rhetoric for Republicans and conservatives who oppose his radical agenda domestically; however, this administration has been thoroughly unwilling to admit the dangers of radical Islam and the organizations who foster terrorism under the guise of religious duty and the administration’s complete unwillingness to admit something so basic as that the Taliban is a terrorist organization is truly indicative of the kind of failed leadership that endangers Americans, both at home and abroad, every single day.

We Are On Notice: Terrorists Target Grids


by Frank Gaffney27 Jan 2015

  • In the early hours of the morning on April 16, 2013, a highly professional commando-style assault took place on Pacific Gas & Electric’s Metcalf substation near San Jose, California. As many as twenty-one effectively irreplaceable high-voltage transformers were very nearly destroyed. Had that occurred, Silicon Valley and much of the San Francisco Bay area could have been without power for protracted periods, possibly for years. The yet-to-be-identified attackers got away and must be assumed to be still at large.
  • On October 27, 2013, the Knights Templar drug gang struck and disrupted the grid of Mexico’s Michoacan State. 
  • On June 9, 2014, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) used mortars and rockets to attack the national grid of Yemen by destroying transmission towers. It was the first time that a terrorist attack resulted in an entire country being blacked-out. 

In addition, there have been a number of incidents in which hackers believed to be associated with Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran have demonstrated the capability to use cyber techniques to penetrate and potentially to exercise destructive control over critical infrastructures like electric grids.

In addition, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) has observed that a recently translated Iranian doctrinal statement makes reference in twenty different places to the use of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) to attack that nation’s enemies. The Russians, Chinese, and North Koreans similarly regard EMP as simply a type of cyberwarfare, to be employed offensively against their enemies, including this country.

It appears that official Washington has finally begun to pay attention to the vulnerability of the U.S. electric grid. Notably, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee’s Subcommittee on Cyber-security, Congressman Patrick Meehan (R-PA) hinted that the December 2014 North Korean cyber attack on Sony could portend that the United States’ critical infrastructure could be its next target. He observed:

American businesses, financial networks, government agencies and infrastructure systems like power grids are at continual risk. They’re targeted not just by lone hackers and criminal syndicates, but by well-funded nation-states like North Korea and Iran. A lack of consequences for when nation states carry out cyberattacks has only emboldened these adversaries to do more harm.

Even if no jihadist or other terrorist, hacker or hostile nation tries to disrupt our most critical of critical infrastructures via one technique or another, we still have to “harden” the grid. After all, we are overdue for the sort of intense solar storm that occurs roughly every 150 years. And when it hits, by one estimate issued by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, 130 million Americans will be without power for years. Needless to say, most of those affected will perish before the lights come back on.

Fortunately, on December 1, 2014 in what may have been the only laudable action to come out of the lame duck session, the House of Representatives took a small, but important, step to address the vulnerability of the U.S. bulk power distribution system. It unanimously approved the Critical Infrastructure Protection Act (CIPA), a bill that requires the Department of Homeland Security to develop a plan for protecting the grid against solar weather, cyber attack, EMP and more. Rep. Meehan co-sponsored this legislation, along with its lead sponsors, Reps. Franks and Pete Sessions (R-TX).

With the new Congress, the CIPA bill will have to start from scratch – as would any other legislation designed to achieve grid resiliency on the more accelerated basis that is needed in the face of the aforementioned human-induced and naturally occurring threats to the grid. Still, the elevation of Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) to the chairmanship of the Senate Homeland Security Committee and his commitment and that of his House counterpart, Rep. Michael McCaul, to swift action on CIPA is heartening. 

But will it be in time?

Benjamin Netanyahu: Iran Planning New ‘Genocide’ Against Jews

Iran’s ayatollahs are planning a new “genocide” against the Jewish people, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says.
During a speech Tuesday on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a defiant prime minister said it was his duty to “ensure that the State of Israel will never again be threatened with destruction,” warning that’s exactly what would happen under an agreement being negotiated with Iran by the United States and four other world powers, the Times of Israel reports.OBAMA CARTOONS, THROW ISRAEL UNDER THE BUS
“The pending agreement with Iran is an agreement that endangers the State of Israel,” he declared. “It leaves Iran with the capabilities that will allow it to arm itself with nuclear weapons, one bomb at first and afterwards many atomic bombs. We cannot live with such an agreement.”

Burning falgNetanyahu said Israel would “reject any agreement that leaves Iran as a nuclear threshold state.”

“The ayatollahs in Iran, they deny the Holocaust while planning another genocide against our people,” he said. “The Jewish people will defend itself by itself against any threat. That’s what the Jewish state is all about.”

Netanyahu’s remarks come ahead of his planned March 3 address to Congress – two weeks before Israeli elections. The invite has irked the Obama administration.  The prime minister is expected to urge U.S. lawmakers to hit Iran with a new round of economic sanctions, though President Barack Obama vows to veto any bill increasing sanctions while nuclear talks are underway.

More Hatred of Israel
Netanyahu also decried the resurgence of anti-Semitism around the world, and blasted the “obsession with the Jewish people and their state,” The Times of Israel reports.  “Some things just don’t change. But I can tell you today what has changed. We have changed. … We are no longer a stateless people endlessly searching for a safe haven. We are no longer a powerless people begging others to protect us. Today we are an independent and sovereign people in our ancestral homeland. Today we can speak out against the hateful voices of those seeking our destruction. Today we can protect ourselves and defend our freedom.”

ISIS, BOKO HARAM, HAMAS: Real Face of Islam!


Written by Audrey Russo on January 28, 2015

It continues unabated. The falsehoods blathered from the mouths of dubious leaders living under freedom in the West. As a dog returning to his vomit, Western leaders repeat the mantra that Islam is a “religion of peace”. This, despite unequivocal evidence to the contrary…

But, it’s never too late to launch a counter-campaign against blatant lies…especially when those lies threaten the safety of all free people.

So, speaking of the contrary evidence…what do ISIS, Boko Haram, Hamas et al, all have in common? Answer: ISLAM!Wake up America

There are, at the moment, 144 Islamic terror groups worldwide. Many are separate entities, but the creed/ mission of ALL are based upon…if not verbatim from…the Quran. What they base their doctrine upon, is not a matter of interpretation. Their commands come straight from Islam’s holy books.

Islam’s image-polishers, Muslim activists and Western useful idiots…often quote verses from the Quran that were written in the early days of the Islamic movement, before Mohammed lived in Medina (pre-Medina). Those early verses make Islam appear loving and harmless because they call for love, peace and tolerance. But this is a deception. Islamapologist

The activists neglect to tell the naive that such verses, though remaining in the Quran, were abrogated and rendered void by later verses that incite religious bigotry, slavery, terrorism (jihad), decapitations, dismemberment and slaughter. These latter verses were written while Mohammed’s command center was based in Medina (post-Medina).

These are the Quran’s verses of Abrogation:

2:106: “If We abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten, We will replace it by a better one or one similar….”

13:39: “God abrogates and confirms what He pleases. His is the Decree Eternal.”

17:86: “If We pleased We could take away that which We have revealed to you:..”

16:101 “When We change one verse for another (God knows best what He reveals), they say: “You are an impostor….”

So, when you hear Taqiyya-practicing (lying for the sake of Islam) Muslims, politicians being politically expedient to remain in office, OR the paltering parrots in the media (genius-wannabes)…handing you the warm-n-fuzzy Islam image, be advised: That’s archaic info…a superseded section of the Quran.Obama Muslim collection

It’s time to upgrade to Muhammed’s version…practiced daily in every part of the globe where hatred, slavery and slaughter still reign…in the name of Allah.

It ain’t pretty, because it’s the REAL face of Islam. Islam is NOT

Shalom through strength…

Secret planting of up to 75,000 Syrian Muslims begins in U.S.

Syrian refugees displaced by civil war.

Syrian refugees displaced by civil war.

Up to 10,000 Syrian refugees, most of them Muslims, will be resettled in cities throughout the U.S. in 2015, with that figure expected to surge to near 75,000 over the next five years.

While some of the planned destinations for these refugees are starting to leak out, the big question is: where will they be going?

The U.S. State Department does not announce where it plans to send foreign refugees for resettlement within the United States, although the locations do eventually show up in a government database some weeks after they arrive in their host cities. Word of their anticipated arrivals will sometimes surface earlier in local media reports.

And that’s already happening in North Dakota, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio and Washington.against America

North Dakota

The Jamestown Sun of Jamestown, North Dakota, reported recently that the Midwestern state is expecting about 400 new refugees to arrive from the Middle East this year.

Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota and its “community partners,” which include schools, medical facilities, law enforcement, county and volunteer agencies and churches, are anticipating a shift in the ongoing resettling of refugees there.

The state is expecting a slowing of the influx of Hindus from Bhutan and an increase in the number of Muslims coming from the Middle East, reported Ann Corcoran in her Refugee Resettlement Watch blog.

The Lutheran agency has recently resettled a number of people from Afghanistan, and is planning for refugees in the coming months from Syria and Iraq, who are escaping the brutality of the Islamic State, also called ISIS, and civil war in Syria, the Sun reported.Picture1

Muslims in the White House Administration

Laetitia Mizero, program director and state refugee coordinator at Lutheran Social Services, said 260 refugees will settle in the Fargo area, about 95 in Grand Forks and 45 in Bismarck.

Once a city gets a refugee “seed community” started, it tends to grow, Corcoran said. That’s because the resettlement agency, the Lutherans in this case, then gets paid by the government to resettle the family members of the initial refugees.Picture2

Louisville, Kentucky

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that Kentucky Refugee Ministries Executive Director John Koehlinger said an Iraqi-American in that city has started an Arabic newspaper to serve the “large number of refugees from Iraq” in Louisville. That’s a trend that started around 2008 — and now Louisville is preparing to aid the first wave of refugees from Syria in 2015, the Courier-Journal reported.

“Refugees have been coming from Iraq in large numbers for five years,” Koehlinger told the Courier-Journal. “I think that the time is right for a newspaper for that (Arab) community.”more evidence

Spokane, Washington

Spokane, Washington, has already welcomed one family of Iraqis that had fled to Syria under pressure from ISIS.

In addition to the Iraqi family arriving from Syria, World Relief Spokane told KXLY-TV that a Syrian family will be coming in the next couple months “with many more to follow.”

North Carolina, Texas and Ohio

As previously reported by WND, the cities of Greensboro, North Carolina, and Cleveland, Ohio, are also primed to receive Syrian refugees.

If established patterns hold, Texas could also be a hotspot for Syrian refugees. It has already received 50 Syrians over the last year-and-a-half, according to State Department figures.

Lincoln, Nebraska

Nebraska is also primed to receive Syrian refugees. At least four Nebraska resettlement agencies have said they are preparing to help the effort, reported the McCook Gazette of McCook, Nebraska, although no numbers have been released yet for Nebraska.

Nebraska agencies pledging to help deal with the refugees include Lutheran Refugee Services of Lincoln, Lutheran Family Services, Catholic Social Services and the Southern Sudan Community Association.

More than 3 million Syrians have fled their country because of the ongoing civil war between forces loyal to President Bashar Assad and several Islamic rebel groups including ISIS, the al-Qaida-affiliated al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army. Assad is a member of the minority Alawite sect which is fighting the coalition of Sunni Muslim rebels. Christians have been largely protected by the Alawite regime, worshiping freely in centuries-old Syrian churches, many of which now lie in ruins.Christian Persecution

Syria part of broader Christian genocide in Mideast

Greek Catholic sources have said more than 300,000 Syrian Christians are among the refugees driven from their homes. But neither the United Nations nor the Obama administration has shown a willingness to bring large numbers of Christian Syrians to the United States, focusing instead on Muslim refugees which pose a greater security risk.Picture3

Peter Jesserer Smith, Washington correspondent for the National Catholic Register, recently filed a story from a refugee camp in Lebanon in which a Catholic nun, who runs a relief effort serving Christians and Muslims from Syria, told Smith that she is well aware that ISIS has its “infiltrators within the Sunni refugees.”

If they kill me, it’s not a problem,” the nun said. “Maybe another sister … will have the courage to continue the mission.”Picture4

The Canadian government said in December that it was considering giving priority to Christian and Yazidi refugees fleeing Syria and has since come under strong condemnation from the U.N. and non-governmental organizations such as Amnesty International. Canada’s left-leaning Liberal Party also roundly criticized the plans by conservatives to focus on non-Muslim refugees.more evidence

“As far as global needs go, the Middle East has plenty of safe refuges for Sunni and Shiite Muslims; it has none for Christians and Yazidis,” writes Daniel Greenfield, a New York-based journalist and fellow at the Freedom Center who focuses on radical Islam. “It only makes sense that the West should fill the need for safe refuges that don’t exist in the Muslim world for non-Muslims, while the Muslim world takes in its own refugees.”AMEN

The situation for Syrian Christians has only grown more dire since a 2013 report by Global Catholic Network.

“Many Christians in the region fear Syria will become another Iraq, where poor security after the U.S. invasion in 2003 has allowed militant Islamic groups to target Christians for intimidation, killings and kidnappings that helped drive hundreds of thousands of Christians out of the country,” reported the Global Catholic Network more than a year-and-a-half ago.

That fear now appears to be coming to pass.

Sister Agnes-Mariam de la Croix, mother superior of the Greek Catholic Monastery of St. James the Mutilated in Syria, said the Syrian uprising has been “hijacked by Islamist mercenaries who are more interested in fighting a holy war than in changing the government,” according to the Global Catholic Network.Really with logo

She said the conflict turned into “a sectarian conflict” in which Christians are “paying a high price,” the Daily Mail reports. At least 80,000 Christians were forced from their homes in the Homs region, said the nun, who was forced to flee to Lebanon when militants wearing the black bandanas of al-Qaida laid siege to her monastery between Damascus and Homs for two days to try to prevent Christmas celebrations.

She blamed the U.S. and Europe for supporting rebel groups whose stated goal was to create an Islamic state.

The British think tank Civitas, in a December 2012 report titled “Christianophobia,” warned there is “a serious risk that Christianity will disappear from its biblical heartlands” in the Middle East and north Africa due largely to violence and intimidation from members of the Islamic faith.Picture5

“In the large area between Morocco and Pakistan, for example, there is scarcely a country in which church life operates without restrictions. Syria has been one of the exceptions until now,” writes the author of the report, Rupert Shortt. “As I write, however, the country is enduring full-scale civil war, and tens of thousands of Christians have been ousted from places including Homs and Qusayr.”Christian Persecution

Civitas estimated that up to two-thirds of Middle East Christians have left their homelands or have been killed in the past 100 years.

Obama creates task force on ‘New Americans’

The U.S. State Department places refugees in 180 cities across 49 states with help from nine contractors, most of them affiliated with Christian denominations. See the list of resettlement offices in all 180 U.S. cities where U.N.-selected refugees are being resettled.

WND has reported that mayors in Georgia, Massachusetts and New Hampshire have been outspoken in their opposition to the State Department sending any more refugees to their cities, saying the refugees have been a drain on social services and taxpayer dollars. The cost of resettling the refugees has been estimated at more than $1 billion a year. Yet, the Obama administration maintains that refugees and asylum seekers are good for the U.S. economy.

The U.S. has brought in nearly 2 million refugees from Muslim countries since President Jimmy Carter signed the Refugee Act of 1980 into law.

With the massive increase in U.S. immigration, both legal and illegal, President Obama announced on Jan. 12 he is creating a “White House Task Force on New Americans” under the direction of Cecilia Muñoz, one of his trusted aides and a former vice president for National Council of La Raza or “the Race.”

“By March 2015, the Task Force will submit a plan to the president that includes recommendations for federal actions to promote the integration of new Americans,” the announcement states. “In developing this plan, we need to hear from you. You know best what is working to support immigrant integration in your community.”Picture6

The White House says it is seeking input “on promising practices and examples of model programs that help immigrants and refugees to contribute to your communities and our economy.”

“We also need your input to ensure that federal programs and policies continue to reflect our ongoing commitment to welcoming and integrating newcomers into the fabric of our country,” the White House statement said.more evidence

The White House asks for ideas and examples to be emailed to NewAmericans@who.eop.gov by Feb. 9.Picture7

The White House said it wants ideas to “Help Shape a Federal Immigrant and Refugee Integration Strategy.”

Jindal speaks out

But at least one high-profile politician has been speaking out this week on the topic of assimilation, or lack thereof, on the part of immigrant communities, especially those coming from Middle Eastern cultures. Gov. Bobby Jindal, R-La., said in a Tuesday radio interview with the Family Research Council that Muslims coming to America need to accept American culture and values or stay in their homelands. Otherwise, he said, America will go down the same path as Europe, where “no-go zones” or “semi-autonomous areas” have sprouted up within major cities.

“What is not acceptable, what you’ve seen in Europe, is people do not want to assimilate and want to set up a form of Shariah law,” Jindal said. “You see third- and fourth-generation immigrants in Europe, in the U.K., what don’t consider themselves part of that society.  What’s not acceptable is people who want to come here and conquer us. That’s not immigration. That’s colonization, if someone wants to change our culture and values. That’s really an invasion if you’re honest about it.”

“Of course the P.C. crowd doesn’t want to hear this.”cause of death

Jindal said that if the U.S. is not careful its traditional “melting pot” in which immigrants learned English and considered themselves Americans first, will morph into something closer to cesspool of cultures within a culture. That will create a breeding ground for those who wish to do America harm, he said, producing home-grown radicals like those who attacked the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in Paris.

“This is the threat we face, and if we’re not serious about this we’re going to see more lone-wolf attacks,” he said. “These are monsters. We need to be very clear about the enemy we face.”

To watch the full interview with Gov. Bobby Jindal, see video clip below. vidrefug03

Ann C. Richard, the deputy Secretary of State in charge of immigration, said the United States had resettled nearly 70,000 refugees from nearly 70 countries around the world last year, and is reviewing 9,000 to 10,000 recent Syrian referrals from the United Nations high commissioner on refugees. The State Department receives about 1,000 new referrals each month from the U.N. agency and takes 18 to 24 months to screen each applicant for security purposes and possible ties to terrorist organizations. Last month’s State Department announcement was careful to explain that the U.S. will take in only those Syrians who are “persecuted by their government.” Christians in Syria are being killed by ISIS and other Muslim rebels, not by “their government,” but the Sunni Muslims are being killed by the Shiite-led government. It also would not take 18 to 24 months to vet Christian refugees for security purposes, which leads refugee experts to believe that the vast majority of those coming from Syria will be Muslim.

“There is no doubt the majority of Syrians to be admitted to the U.S. will be Muslims because it would be unlikely there would be a ‘security risk’ with the Christians,” according to Corcoran.Really with logo

The number of refugees from Syria is expected to surge in 2015 and beyond, Richards said, and the U.S. accepts the majority of all United Nations referrals from around the world.

Refugees accepted through the United Nations refugee program are put on a fast track toward U.S. citizenship and are eligible for a full range of government welfare programs, including housing subsidies, Medicaid, food stamps, Women, Infants and Children as well as refugee assistance loans and tutoring from language experts who will help them bridge the language gap in public schools.

The nine resettlement agencies all have strong presences in Washington and often lobby on behalf of the U.N. high commissioner on refugees, pushing for more foreign refugees to be resettled in America, which results in more federal grants flowing into their coffers.

The nine contractors that lobbied for more Syrian refugees are:

Church World Service (CWS)
• Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC)
• Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM)
• Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS)
• International Rescue Committee (IRC)
• U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI)
• Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services (LIRS)
• U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)
• World Relief Corp. (WR)

WND has documented in previous stories that more than 90 percent of the money used by Lutheran Social Services, the Catholic Bishops and other religious charities for their refugee resettlement work comes from government grants.

Islamic State Releases Pictures of Its Sniper Battalion In Wake of “American Sniper” Film…

I’m guessing they aren’t as lethal as Chris Kyle.

Via Daily Mail:

The Islamic State has released the first pictures of its own sniper battalion in what appears to be propaganda to answer the hit US film, American Sniper.

Bearded as well as clean-shaven members of the eight-man unit are pictured posing with long-range Russian-made Dragunov sniper rifles in northern Iraq.

Adopting the look of an American sniper unit, the fighters are kitted out in khaki uniforms, peaked caps and ski goggles to protect them from the glare of the sun.

According to the US-based jihadi tracking organisation, Site, the unit is part of the Ninewa Division of northern Iraq. It is one of 16 administrative regions in the Islamic State that spans Syria and Iraq.

ISIS snipers have seen action in both Syria and Iraq where they have been responsible for the deaths of many Kurdish and Iraqi soldiers.

An ISIS sniper killed Iranian Revolutionary Guard Brigadier General Hamid Taqavi in December. Taqavi was one of a number of Iranian advisers training Shi’a militias in their fight against ISIS.

Islamic Tribunal Confirmed in Texas; Attorney Claims ‘It’s Voluntary’


by Bob Price, 27 Jan 2015

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2015/01/27/hold-islamic-tribunal-confirmed-in-texas-its-voluntary-says-attorney/

Breitbart Texas spoke with one of the “judges,” Dr. Taher El-badawi. He said the tribunal operates under Sharia law as a form of “non-binding dispute resolution.” El-badawi said their organization is “a tribunal, not arbitration.” A tribunal is defined by Meriam-Webster’s Dictionary as “a court or forum of justice.” The four Islamic attorneys call themselves “judges” not “arbitrators.” El-badawi said the tribunal follows Sharia law to resolve civil disputes in family and business matters. He said they also resolve workplace disputes.

In matters of divorce, El-badawi said that “while participation in the tribunal is voluntary, a married couple cannot be considered divorced by the Islamic community unless it is granted by the tribunal.” He compared their divorce, known as “Talaq,” as something similar to the Catholic practice of annulment in that the church does not recognize civil divorce proceedings as ending a marriage. He also said there is a difference between how a man and a woman can request a divorce under their system. “The husband can request the divorce directly from the tribunal,” El-badawi stated. “The wife must go to an Imam who will request the divorce for her.” He called it “two paths to the same result.” The practice of Khula is the process where a wife can initiate a divorce proceeding and where the husband can agree to the divorce in exchange for a financial compensation. It appears the wife must agree to give up any claim to the “dower” that was not already paid or to return it if it has already been paid. Once the financial issues are resolved the husband can then proclaim the Talaq (divorce). El-badawi said they follow Texas family law when it comes to child support, visitation, and custody. He said that in most cases, custody of children is awarded to the mother.

Breitbart Texas asked what happens when there is a conflict between Sharia law and Texas law. El-badawi said most of the time, the laws are in agreement. When pushed further he admitted that, “we follow Sharia law.” However, he explained, “If the parties are not satisfied with the tribunal’s decision, they do not have to accept it and they can take the matter to Texas civil courts.” He did not say what the social ramifications of rejecting the “judge’s” decision would be.

The website for the Islamic Tribunal states, “The courts of the United States of America are costly and consist of ineffective lawyers.  Discontent with the legal system leads many Muslims in America to postpone justice in this world and opt for an audience on the Day of Judgment.”Islam is NOT

It goes on to state, “It is with this issue that Muslims here in America are obligated to find a way to solve conflicts and disputes according to the principles of Islamic Law and its legal heritage of fairness and justice in a manner that is reasonable and cost effective.”

In explaining Sharia law, the website states, “Stoning adulterers, cutting of the hands, polyandry and the like (all can be traced in the relevant literature and can be explained in their Islamic legal mentality and rational context in fairness and justice), are mainly a part of Islamic Criminal Law.  In fact criminal law within Islam only makes up a fraction of the Shari’ah.  It is unscholarly and unfair to generalize that type of understanding, that is Criminal Law, to compromise the whole of Islamic law if we stick to speaking in technical terms.”

The website lists four “judges:” Imam Yusuf Z.Kavakci, Imam Moujahed Bakhach, Imam Zia ul Haque Sheikh and Dr. El-badawi. It states the Islamic Tribunal resolves business disputes, divorce (Talaq) cases, community problems, serious family problems, and Khula.

El-badawi restated several times that participation in the tribunal is voluntary. However, he would not discuss what happens to someone who did not follow their rulings.

Judicial Watch obtains ‘smoking gun’ Benghazi documents


Posted By Jerome R. Corsi On 01/26/2015

Article Reblogged from WND: http://www.wnd.com

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.wnd.com/2015/01/judicial-watch-obtains-smoking-gun-benghazi-documents/

Hillary Clinton testifies to a congressional committee probing the Benghazi attack.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testifies to a congressional committee probing the Benghazi attack.

Clinton ObamaNEW YORK – Documents obtained Monday through a federal court order show State Department officials disseminated the false story that the 2012 Benghazi attack that killed a U.S. ambassador was nothing more than the violent escalation of a demonstration by Muslims against an insulting video, even though they knew it was a coordinated military-style assault.

Among the documents obtained by the Washington-based government watchdog Judicial Watch was a memo sent the day after the Sept. 11, 2012, attack to the U.S. Embassy in Tunis, Tunisia, by the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Command Center titled “Emergency Message to U.S. Citizens: Demonstrations.”

The Diplomatic Security Command Center, or DSCC, was well aware that the attack was carried out by highly organized and armed Islamic militia, because the DSCC was the unit that monitored the attack in real time via video transmissions from a drone. The message is identical to the emergency message issued by the U.S. Embassy in Tunis and archived on the embassy’s website.

The emergency message reads in the first paragraph: “On September 11, 2012, violent demonstrations took place at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt and at the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, resulting in damage in both locations and casualties in Benghazi. Media reports indicate that demonstrations may take place at the U.S. Embassy in Tunis on Wednesday, September 12, 2012.”benghazi-libya-coverup-obama-white-house-hillary-clinton-chris-stevens-330x189

‘They knew’

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said the DSCC “clearly knew in real time that a full-fledged terrorist attack was taking place on September 11 at the U.S. compound in Benghazi, and the American people deserve to be told the truth.”

“We are now into the fourth year of a massive Obama administration cover-up,” Fitton said.

He said the DSCC communiqués “may further help unravel the Obama administration’s growing web of deceit.”

“I’ve always believed that the Benghazi cover-up was about two presidential campaigns – the Obama re-election effort and Hillary Clinton’s nascent presidential campaign. I have little doubt that the State Department is protecting Hillary Clinton with this latest cover-up,” he asserted.Further from the truth

Even after the Benghazi attack, the Obama re-election campaign maintained its narrative that al-Qaida was on the run. The boast would have been impossible to sustain had the State Department told the truth about the terrorist attack in documents such as the emergency warning for U.S. citizens.

Judicial Watch insists the testimony of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Charlene Lamb under oath to the House Oversight Committee on Oct. 10, 2012, proves the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Command Center knew the Benghazi compound was under hostile fire from the moment the attack began.

“That brings me to the events of September 11 itself,” Lamb testified. “The account I am about to present is based on first-hand reports from several security personnel present that night. Additionally, I was in our Diplomatic Security Command Center monitoring multiple open lines with our agents for much of the attack.”

“The attack began at approximately 9:40 pm local time,” Lamb continued. “Diplomatic Security agents inside the compound heard loud voices outside the walls, followed by gunfire and an explosion. Dozens of attackers then launched a full-scale assault that was unprecedented in its size and intensity. They forced their way through the pedestrian gate, and used diesel fuel to set fire to the Libyan 17th February Brigade members’ barracks, and then proceeded toward the main building.”

A Judicial Watch statement claimed Lamb’s testimony was in direct conflict with initial false claims by the Obama administration that the attack arose from a spontaneous demonstration in response to an Internet video.

“False information and the lies put out by this office, the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Command Center, that knew even as the Benghazi attack was going on that it was a terrorist attack, recklessly endangered U.S. lives by drafting for the U.S. Embassy in Tunisia claims the Benghazi attack involved only a protest demonstration over a movie,” Fitton said.

“When the State Department only warned U.S. citizens in Tunisia about demonstrations, the U. S. government was lying to them,” he maintained.

“You are making people think they only needed to worry about demonstrations, when the truth was Americans in North Africa needed to know the night before Benghazi was hit by an intense terrorist attack, that came on violently, with heavily armed al-Qaida-backed militia carrying AK-47s and RPGs. ‘Be Warned’ should have been the message, ‘There was a terrorist attack, and you should be very careful right now.”Info-on-Benghazi Leave-Behind-590-LI Phony-Scandals-590-LI PI 19

Fitton stressed that by not telling Americans in Tunisia the truth, the State Department was engaging in “reckless disregard” of their safety.

“To the extent this information was withheld from personnel in the State Department, in Tunisia or elsewhere in the area where U.S. State Department personnel were deployed, these lies placed these people in jeopardy,” Fitton said. “U.S. citizens in Tunisia should have been told honestly to be worried about and to watch out for terrorists, not demonstrators.”

“The State Department Diplomatic Security Command Center knew that Benghazi was a terrorist attack that ended up killing the ambassador, and it was unconscionable for the Obama State Department to lie in the ‘Emergency Message for U.S. Citizens’ we now know the DSCC drafted for the U.S. Embassy in Tunisia to publish.”30 Witnesses disappear North Africa

Fitton explained why he considered the statement to be a breach of trust between the State Department and State Department personnel deployed internationally, which compounded the offense.

“It’s no wonder the morale of State Department officials overseas was decimated after Benghazi,” he said. “Not only did the State Department and the Obama administration leave Ambassador Stevens and the other brave Americans who died without timely rescue and defense, the State Department with Benghazi tore up that implicit compact that certainly soldiers in the U.S. military have, not only that they won’t be left behind, but also that they won’t be lied to about the dangers they are facing.”Leave-Behind-590-LI

Freed Gitmo Captive Opens ISIS Base in Afghanistan


Posted by Judicial Watch, JANUARY 15, 2015

Wake up America

As President Obama frees droves of terrorists—including five Yemenis this week—from the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo news reports confirm that a Gitmo alum who once led a Taliban unit has established the first Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) base in Afghanistan.Really with logo

His name is Mullah Abdul Rauf and international and domestic media reports say he’s operating in Helmand province, actively recruiting fighters for ISIS. Citing local sources, a British newspaper writes that Rauf set up a base and is offering good wages to anyone willing to fight for the Islamic State. Rauf was a corps commander during the Taliban’s 1996-2001 rule of Afghanistan, according to intelligence reports. After getting captured by U.S. forces, he was sent to Gitmo in southeast Cuba but was released in 2007.

Rauf’s Department of Defense Joint Task Force Guantanamo file describes him as being closely associated with several senior level Taliban commanders and leaders. It also says that Rauf admitted involvement in the production and sales of opium as well as associations with criminal elements within the Taliban and the Northern Alliance. From the file: “Due to recent findings that detainee may have had a more important role within the Taliban than previously thought detainee’s intelligence value has been updated from low to medium due to his possible knowledge of: (1) Taliban leadership, (2) Taliban command and control.”Obama Muslim collection

Rauf is one of a number of Gitmo terrorists who have returned to the fight after getting released, yet Obama continues freeing captives to keep his campaign promise of closing the prison. Just this week he let four Yemenis go, despite the risk that they will likely join Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the Yemen-based terror group that claimed responsibility for last week’s attack in France. In fact, dozens of freed Gitmo detainees have rejoined Al Qaeda in Yemen, the country where the 2009 Christmas Day airline bomber proudly trained. In 2010 Judicial Watch reported that a number of high-ranking Al Qaeda militants in Yemen—once held at Gitmo—may have been involved in a sophisticated scheme to send bombs on a U.S.-bound cargo plane.

Just a few weeks ago JW uncovered an embarrassing gaffe involving an Al Qaeda operative liberated from Gitmo years ago. Turns out the U.S. government has now put him on a global terrorist list and offered $5 million for information on his whereabouts! That disturbing news came during a week when Obama freed four more longtime Gitmo captives to Afghanistan. Shutting the compound down will be tough because it still houses about 120 of the world’s most dangerous jihadists, including 9/11 masterminds Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), Ramzi Binalshibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali, and Mustafa Ahmed Adam al Hawsawi as well as USS Cole bomber Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri.Islam is NOT

Since the Guantanamo military tribunals commenced in 2008, JW has traveled regularly to the Naval base in Cuba to monitor and report them to the public. Over the last few years JW has covered various hearings and proceedings involving al-Nashiri, KSM, Binalshibh, Ali, and Hawsawi. Each time JW representatives have witnessed a deep commitment to justice by military lawyers and judges as well as the topnotch civilian attorneys (financed by American taxpayers) vigorously defending every one of the terrorists being tried.

Reports: Bergdahl to be charged with desertion


Posted By -NO AUTHOR- On 01/26/2015

Article Reblogged from WND: http://www.wnd.com

Seven months after the military began an investigation into the disappearance of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and his capture by the Taliban, which held him for five years, a new report indicates Army officials have determined Bergdahl — for whom the administration traded five top Gitmo-held terrorists — will be charged as a deserter.

Retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, a senior fellow at the London Center for Policy Research, made the startling claim during an appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News: vidOreilly

Bergdahl’s attorney has received the charges, according to Shaffer, who claims the Obama administration is withholding the report.

But the Army Times claims the Army says there’s no truth to claims a decision has been made on the Bergdahl case. Paul Boyce, spokesman for Forces Command, told the Army Times there is no charge sheet and the Fox News story “seems to be speculative in nature.”

“What they are reporting is untrue – there has been no update to what we provided in Dec. Investigation is still with [General Mark] Milley who will determine appropriate action – which ranges from no further action to convening a court martial. We cannot discuss or disclose the findings of the investigation while disciplinary decisions are pending before commanders,” the Army said in a statement provided to CNN Tuesday.

Likewise, Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby posted the following statement on Twitter: “Contrary to media reporting, no decision made by Army leadership with respect to Sgt. Bergdahl’s case. The process will be respected.”

O’Reilly said the White House has had this information for a while but has been delaying it under the auspices of Ben Rhodes, assistant national security adviser.

“This is shaping up to be a Titanic struggle behind the scenes,” Shaffer said. “Believe me, the Army here wants to do the right thing. Factually, there’s no way they can not do the right thing regarding Bergdahl. And the White House, because of the political narrative, President Obama cozying up to the parents and because he, President Obama, releasing the five Taliban. … The narrative is what the White House does not want to have come out.”Obama Muslim collection

NBC News is separately reporting that a decision on the desertion charge is imminent and may come within a week, according to an anonymous senior defense officials.

Bergdahl was recovered in Afghanistan by U.S. troops in a controversial swap for five Taliban officials on May 31. He had disappeared from his small patrol base on June 30, 2009, under a cloud of suspicion and fear as it became clear he been captured by militants.

The Army in June launched a new investigation into Bergdahl’s disappearance and capture, amid a raft of accusations from his fellow soldiers that he walked away from his unit on the battlefield and questions about whether the Obama administration handled the prisoner swap legally.

On Jan. 11, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, said he anticipated a decision “fairly soon” on whether the Army would court martial Bergdahl for deserting his post.

“In White House terms, not charging Bergdahl means that he was indeed worth the trade for the Taliban Five. But charging him on any level means that releasing the five Taliban was an error of monstrous proportions, one the administration will never be able to explain away satisfactorily,” said retired Lt. Col. Bill Cowen in a commentary written for the Fox News site.Islamapologist

Former Sgt. Matt Vierkant told CNN last year, Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war, and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him.”Remember

“I don’t understand,” Vierkant added, “why we’re trading prisoners at Gitmo for somebody who deserted during a time of war, which is an act of treason.”Bergdahl

A full 54 percent of Americans agreed in a June 2014 poll, saying Obama’s swap for Bergdahl amounted to providing aid to terrorists – which violates federal law. And they said impeachment is deserved.

Bowe Bergdahl

In June, WND reported an explosive charge emerged – that Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers had orders to shoot him on sight as a deserter.

A number of damning charges against Bergdahl came from soldiers who served with him. Some were posted on Facebook.

The soldiers wrote anonymously, saying the Pentagon had them sign nondisclosure statements after Bergdahl disappeared from his post in Afghanistan in 2009. Some said they were still on active duty.

WND also reported a four-year-old claim by a Taliban commander that Bergdahl wasn’t just a deserter but also a traitor who converted to Islam and taught jihadi fighters how to make bombs and ambush convoys.

Afghan intelligence officials believed Bergdahl was “cooperating with the Taliban” and advising fighters at a base in Pakistan.

A comment posted by a soldier who says he served with Bergdahl confirmed the charge.

“What you have is pretty well spot on,” the post says. “All I know is that our orders were kill on contact and then we came back and it was covered up. I’ve personally been threatened a few times that discussing it in half the detail you already have was considered an act of treason.”

Another post made clear the Army considered Berdahl not just a deserter but a defector.

“My battalion took over the AO from 25th. The story of Bergdahl being a defector is exactly what was briefed to us and I also read the debrief report about the situation. The story is 100% correct. I’ve personally been on a few missions following up on Bergdahls location but we never found anything. I currently live an hour away from his family’s location. Hailey, Idaho, is a resort town frequented by movie stars etc. They typically side with the anti-war side of politics in that area and is a perfect spot for him to live in solitude.”

gitmo_bergdahl

Another post that said Bergdahl deserted came from someone who said he was directly involved in the attempted recovery of Bergdahl.

“Here is what I know, not from hearsay, but because I was there. Bergdahl became a sympathizer, walked off his post to seek out the Taliban in order to join their ranks, to help and live with them. In exchange for his release, the United States released the following 5 known Taliban; Khairullah Khairkhwa, Mullah Norullah Noori, Mullah Norullah Noori, Abdul Haq Wasiq, Mohammed Nabi who were immediately welcomed back into the Taliban network. The Taliban are currently seeking the release of additional prisoners, but will not state specifics. Now that they have the blue print on how to accomplish this by simply capturing an American soldier and with the troop number drawing down to 9,800+, I can only hope our service men and women keep their heads on a swivel.”

ISLAM: The Murder, Mayhem and Misery


Written by Pete Parker on January 26, 2015

Obama Muslim collection

One need look no further than West Africa to understand that Islam is the ideology of murder, mayhem and misery. Earlier this month the Islamic terror group Boko Haram rampaged through the Nigerian town of Baga slaughtering over 2,000 innocents.

U.S. counterterrorism officials reported that Boko Haram utilized strategically placed IED’s and firing squads to kill a majority of the town’s residents. And those that weren’t killed by these insidious tactics were either tortured, raped, incinerated and or beheaded.   

After viewing pictures of the bloodlust and carnage–there is no denying that Islam is also a big POS.Wake up America

Let’s face it–no matter where Islam resides–murder, mayhem and misery always follows. Just last week, in the city of Mosul, Iraq–ISIS executed 13 teenage boys for violating Sharia law. And what was their crime? They dared to watch a soccer match on TV.

In a video that just went viral–religious police in Mecca, Saudi Arabia dragged a woman out of her home in broad daylight and then proceeded to behead her in the street. And the cowards that carried out this nefarious act didn’t even bat an eye.

This woman (who was begging for her life) wasn’t even afforded an ounce of due process because under Sharia law–women are nothing more than vermin.

Of course, Islam’s vile footprint isn’t limited to third-world countries and desert fiefdoms. Sadly, Western Civilization has felt the wrath of this archaic and vile dogma.  Lest we forget the thousands of innocent white girls who have been raped by Muslim “grooming gangs” throughout Europe simply because they are considered to be “infidel sluts.” Not to mention the plethora of “no-go” zones that vitiate the European landscape from the UK to Sweden. These zones are breeding grounds for terrorists and other Islamo-thugs to hatch their machinations like the one executed in France against Charlie Hebdo.  

And we can expect that murder, mayhem and misery to take root and proliferate on our home turf unless we elect a leader who not only respects the Constitution (particularly free speech and the right to bear arms)–but also recognizes Islam for the refuse it truly is.

Video: Americans Want Obama to Repeal the Bill of Rights

“Respondents blithely agree that liberties should be completely eviscerated in the name of fighting ISIS”

more evidence

Beachgoers in San Diego blithely agreed that President Barack Obama should be given the power to completely repeal the Bill of Rights in the name of fighting ISIS in another disturbing insight into the unthinking malaise of many Americans.

Told by media analyst and author Mark Dice that Obama had announced he was to repeal the Bill of Rights in order to “help make sure that we can keep everybody safe here in the homeland,” almost all the respondents agreed that eliminating constitutional rights was perfectly reasonable.

Asked, “Is that the right decision – should we get behind Obama to make sure the ISIS threat doesn’t rear its head here in America?,” one man responded, “Yeah I would agree with that,” before adding, “Only time will tell whether it’s the right or wrong decision,” agreeing with Dice that Obama’s political advisors “know what’s best”.

When another woman was told that both Republicans and Democrats were supporting the move to repeal the Bill of Rights, she responded, “Well if they’re agreeing on something then maybe it is a good thing,” before Dice adds, “It’s what’s best for the new world order.” “Well, let’s do it, let’s get behind it” urges the woman.

Given “what happened overseas in Paris,” another man agrees that if the “experts” think the Bill of Rights should be repealed then Americans should support the move.

Dice then interviews a woman who “absolutely” supports the move to repeal the Bill of Rights “for our own good” and to stop ISIS attacks. The woman then admits she is drunk and probably shouldn’t be doing interviews.

Another man unflinchingly expressed his view that it would be “best for the country” to repeal the Bill of Rights and “modernize” the new world order. “That sounds great to me,” he exclaims.

“Whatever he wants to do it’s probably best for the country,” agrees another woman before adding, “Go Obama!”

Dice’s video once again underscores how Americans will dispense with critical thinking and go along with virtually anything if asked about it in a calm and assertive manner. Note how Dice nods his head as he is asking the question, prompting instantaneous fealty and obsequiousness from each individual.

Last week, Dice also trolled San Diegans by telling them that Martin Luther King, who was murdered nearly 47 years ago, had just died. Instead of correcting him, the respondents went on to concur with several other erroneous claims, such as King being the first African-American to walk on the moon and the first African-American to appear on Mt. Rushmore.

The beachgoers seem to be particularly fervent about relinquishing constitutional rights. In number of separate videos, Dice gets them to agree to repealing the 1st amendment, the 4th amendment and the 5th amendment.

In another segment, college students sign a petition to imprison all registered gun owners, while in another video San Diegans support a move to confiscate guns from Tea Party members and repeal the 2nd amendment.

I would regret dying and knowing I did not use God’s gifts


Posted by Hobo JohnJanuary 25, 2015

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://joeforamerica.com/2015/01/regret-dying-knowing-not-use-gods-gifts/

I am going to ramble around a bit so as to make a point or two. It is Sunday after all and God and Christ are what I found at the end of my journey on the streets. They were both there the entire time of course watching over me as I examined my childhood wounds and learned my lessons about how to use God’s gifts, love myself and others.

Our society makes no time for reflection, we all work too hard and too long and give ourselves little time to chew over mistakes so we often repeat the same ones in vein, hoping for a better out come.

The economy makes it difficult as well, most folks work more and more while receiving less and less. A lot of that has to do with the greed of the rich and clever, and makes my heart hurt. Lots of folks have no time to think about and work through wounds, they are too busy trying to provide for families. I hold them in my heart with every tenderness.

Those seven years without a job, without family or friends was lonely at times to be sure. But it also allowed me to sit with my grief and my fears and to mull them over without anyone interfering with my thinking process and telling me what I should be doing. I count them as a true blessing.

As I said while on the streets I re-familiarized myself with the Bible and Christ’s teachings. I became particularly fond Bible-in-hand-300x150of the Book of James so many nuggets of wisdom and things to ponder.

“For what is your life? It is but a mist that arises for a while and is gone.” James 4:14. The implications of this are extraordinary. The things in this life we hold dear including our own breathe and body, merely temporary and as short term as a mist. The idea is to hunt for something more substantial than even your own life; that could only mean your eternal self. the one beyond time.

It is also refreshing. The things I worry so much about, things as simple as saying something stupid or out of line, where my next meal is coming from, will I make my deadline at work? Well from the point of view of my eternal self these things are a vapor indeed. He is saying we should not work to impress others or even ourselves, but to impress our creator.

Christ said the kingdom of heaven is within and James confirms this calling God’s word implanted. James also says that with patience, and holding to Christ’s teaching we can become, “whole and complete lacking nothing.”

James also tells us “pure religion” has nothing to do with churches or doctrine but is, “to visit the orphan and the widow in their affliction, and to remain untouched by the world.” To me he is saying take care of those who are traumatized and in today’s world you do not have to look to far to find those folks.

“To remain untouched by the world,” that is another phrase that really made me search for some understanding. Well, what runs the world? In my mind it is fear and the things that arise from fear: greed, jealousy, anger, violence, wrath etc. Along with fearful things, lust, or desire is perhaps a kinder word, it also runs the world.

Generally our desire is for stuff we do not have and the stuff other people have. To be untouched by the world means to dwell in God’s joy and peace no matter what happens, no matter what you have or do not have.

After I was molested I lost trust in others to take care of me, I also lost trust in myself. Over time God has restored my faith in myself and I am busy chasing the eternal.

I am genuinely a happy person and still desire many things in this world, a jeep for one thing would be very nice indeed. Lust, jealousy, greed, anger, hate arise in me every day, but when they do I do my best to turn them over to God or I invite God in to heal them.

When it comes to family and friends, well knowing these people are temporary makes them become very precious indeed, far more precious than anything than I could own or have. To hold onto jealousy and hate is something I would regret. In other words it inspires me to be kinder and forgiving of everything.

It also makes me strive to become as good as I possibly can at the things I do. I would regret dying and knowing I did not use God’s gifts to their full potential to better this temporary world. Peace to you folks. I love you with everything that I have; that is my motto, my mantra and the truth of things.

Cruz Files Bill to Ban American Islamic State Fighters from Returning to U.S.

“Blasts Obama’s foreign policy as ‘detached from reality’”

AP

Cruz said that he is filing the bill partly in response to President Obama’s Tuesday State of the Union address, which he described as “detached from reality” on the foreign policy front.

“President Obama’s approach to foreign policy refuses to acknowledge the threats our enemies pose to our national security—it is detached from reality and making the world a more dangerous place,” said Cruz, who also is releasing a new video that takes aim at Obama for misleading the nation about these threats in his annual address.

Cruz said stripping American IS fighters of their citizenship is a step toward securing the country and restoring the country’s image.

“We’ve seen the grave consequence of the Obama-Clinton-Kerry foreign policy unravel with respect to Iran, Russia, and now Yemen,” Cruz said. “These consequences are not confined to faraway lands. They directly threaten America and our allies.”Obama Muslim collection

“That is why this week, I am re-filing the Expatriate Terrorist Act, which prevents Americans who have fought abroad for designated terrorist groups from returning to the United States,” he said. “I look forward to working with senators on both sides of the aisle on this and additional measures to secure our nation and restore America’s leadership in the world.”

In his new video, an advance copy of which was provided to the Free Beacon, Cruz makes the case that Obama’s statements on the foreign policy front do not comport with reality. From Iran to Russia, Yemen, and beyond, Obama painted a picture of his actions that do not comport with the truth on the ground. Multiple media outlets noted after the address that Obama’s remarks were “not close to reality.”culture of deciet

In the wake of the attacks in Paris and in the midst of upheaval in Yemen, the president refused to utter the words “radical Islamic terrorism.”

Regarding Iran, Obama said on Tuesday, “Our diplomacy is at work with respect to Iran, where, for the first time in a decade, we’ve halted the progress of its nuclear program and reduced its stockpile of nuclear material.”

Cruz’s video, called “It’s Time to Face Reality,” points out that Iran is continuing work on new nuclear reactors and still enriching uranium, the key component in a nuclear bombs. It also challenges Obama’s statements on Russia, Yemen, and the fight against terrorism.

Colorado woman who tried to join IS terrorists gets 4 years

DENVER, Jan. 24 (UPI) — A 19-year-old Colorado woman who planned to marry an Islamic State militant she had never met in person and join the terrorist group in Turkey was sentenced to four years in federal prison.

Shannon Maureen Conley, who pleaded guilty in September to one count of of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, said she never intended to hurt anyone, but instead hoped to defend Muslims. Following the prosecutor’s sentencing request, U.S. District Judge Raymond P. Moore said he wanted to send a warning to others considering the same thing.

“This is not a serious offense but an extremely serious offense. I need to send a message,” U.S. District Judge Raymond P. Moore said.

In April, Conley was arrested at Denver International Airport as she tried to board a plane for Turkey. She had planned to meet Yousr Mouelhi, a 32-year-old IS militant she had met online and who promised her marriage.

“It was after arrest that I learned the truth about the ISIS that I was taught to respect,” she said, using an acronym for Islamic State.

Conley converted to Islam three years ago and became radicalized through social media and Internet contacts. Federal authorities repeatedly tried to dissuade her, but she said she wanted to use her nurse’s training to help what she thought was a holy war in Syria.

Prosecutors said she was cooperative and recommended a sentence of a year and a day, which would have meant she would have been released in three months or so. Conley is one of about 150 Americans who have traveled or attempted to travel to join with foreign terrorist groups, a U.S. official told the Los Angeles Times.Freedom with Prayer

Pro-Life Leaders Not Giving Up On 20-Week Abortion Ban: It Will Definitely Get a Vote


by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com 1/23/15

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.lifenews.com/2015/01/23/pro-life-leaders-not-giving-up-on-20-week-abortion-ban-it-will-definitely-get-a-vote/Let God

Top pro-life members of Congress and leading pro-life organizations are united in the face of opposition from some pro-life Republican members of Congress to the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. They are vowing to not give up on unborn babies and promise the bill will eventually get a vote in the House and Senate.

A handful of pro-life Republicans sabotaged the bill Thursday because they were unhappy with the language in the bill concerning women who are victimized by rape. But pro-life Senator Lindsey Graham, who is the prime Senate sponsor, says the bill will come back soon even though Republican leaders were forced to delay the vote.

“This is going to be about wholesale abortions on demand in 20 weeks, five months into pregnancy, and it won’t be about rape,” Graham said. “Nobody’s for rape.”

“Somebody in the House put a provision in there, if you didn’t report the rape to law enforcement, then it’s not going to be considered a legitimate rape. Well, that’s ridiculous,” Graham told reporters. “I’ve been, you know, in criminal law all my life, and the vast majority of women who are raped don’t report it, so we’re not going to go down that road.”

ultrasound4d28Graham has introduced the Senate companion to that legislation, and conceded he did not recognize there was a problem.

“We’re going to fix it. I really, didn’t really pick that up. Quite frankly, it passed the House, but they used some law enforcement definition,” Graham said. “I’m a traditional Hyde amendment guy.”

“I can’t wait for the debate. I’m looking forward to the debate. I want to hear how we’re a better country by aborting babies at 20 weeks,” said Graham, who indicated that as he envisions it, his bill would come as part of a broader debate on related issues, in what could prove a real test of the willingness of senators to take difficult votes.

The National Right to Life Committee, the brain trust behind the bill, is also confident the measure will be back for a full vote in the House and Senate.

National Right to Life President Carol Tobias told LifeNews.com, “The House of Representatives did not pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act this week because certain lawmakers who voted for the same language in 2013, and who had promised their pro-life constituents that they would do so again, instead worked to weaken the bill or to prevent it from coming to the floor.”

“While we are profoundly disappointed that the vote on the bill was delayed, we much prefer delaying the vote to passing a greatly weakened bill,” Tobias said. “We thank the House Republican leadership for quickly facilitating passage of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (H.R. 7) which is another National Right to Life legislative priority.”

Pro-life citizens across the nation are sharply disappointed with those lawmakers who violated commitments to constituents and derailed a bill to protect babies in the sixth month and later, a bill with broad popular support,” Tobias said. “In some cases these actions were apparently dictated mainly by inordinate concern with political correctness and garnering favorable coverage from the mainstream news media. Some of these lawmakers may ultimately conclude that they were ill advised to sacrifice the trust of their pro-life constituents so egregiously.”cause of death

Tobias complained that Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.) played the most visible public role in the successful campaign to stymie action on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act – even though she voted to pass exactly the same bill language on June 18, 2013. In an interview with National Journal (Jan. 16), Ellmers suggested that voting on the bill would turn off millennials (even though some polls show particularly strong support for the ban in that age cohort).

A Jan. 21 interview in Business Week quoted Ellmers as saying, “We should not be looking back in history, we should be looking forward.” On Jan. 20, Ellmers personally went to the House floor to withdraw her cosponsorship of the bill. Yet on Jan. 22 she told The Weekly Standard that she would vote to pass the bill with or without language that she preferred, noting, “I have a very pro-life district…”

Other top leaders in Congress confirm the 20-week abortion ban is returning.

“We’re going to bring this bill back. This is a fight that’s not over. We’re going to continue working to get this bill passed,” House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) told The Hill on Thursday.

Scalise was attending the annual March for Life, a rally against abortion rights that is staged every year on the National Mall to mark the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. Separately, Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), one of the sponsors of the pulled bill, said leadership gave him a “word of honor” the measure will get floor action. Members of the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List, which works to elect politicians who oppose abortion rights, said they met personally with McCarthy (R-Ca.) on Wednesday night, and that he assured them the GOP would bring the bill back up soon.

“He said he’s committed to bringing it to the floor quickly and we’re going to hold him to that,” said SBA president Marjorie Dannenfelser.

“He made a very strong commitment and I believe him,” added former Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (R-Co.), who was also in the meetingPicture14 Picture15

Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) also withdrew her cosponsorship on January 20, yet continued to affirm to constituents that she would vote to pass the bill (as she had in 2013).

National Journal reported (Jan. 21): “Tellingly, Rep. Marsha Blackburn [(R-Tenn.)]. . . gave an impassioned speech in [the House Republican] conference, noting that because of the rape clause, the GOP was again fumbling over this sensitive subject instead of talking about other issues, according to sources in the meeting.” Yet in April 2014, Blackburn said in writing on a signed questionnaire submitted to National Right to Life that she supported virtually identical language pertaining to the reporting of sexual crimes – applied throughout pregnancy.Freedom with Prayer

Islam experts: No-go zones looming for America


 

Posted By Bob Unruh On 01/22/2015

Article Reblogged from WND: http://www.wnd.com

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.wnd.com/2015/01/islam-experts-no-go-zones-looming-for-america/burkha_women

The “no-go zones” in some Western nations, where law enforcement has lost control because of the influence of Islamic law, are coming to America. That’s according to several Islam experts interviewed by WND who believe the kind of Muslim enclaves that have developed in Europe due to a lack of assimilation will eventually arise in the U.S. as the Muslim population grows. The contention that “no-go” zones exist is controversial, as evidenced by the widespread ridicule that arose when an analyst said in a Fox News interview shortly after the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack in Paris that the major English city of Birmingham was a “no-go” zone itself. The analyst apologized, but only for exaggerating his point, not for asserting “no-go” zones exist.Obama Muslim collection

As WND reported, the government of France has identified 751 Zones Urbaines Sensibles, or Sensitive Urban Zones, that the state does not fully control, citing Middle East foreign policy expert Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum.com02

The zones are enclaves where Muslim immigrants have chosen not to assimilate, and law enforcement has lost some degree of control.

Republican Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal recently told Fox News interviewer Neil Cavuto that the zones are inevitable in America if the country doesn’t insist that immigrant Muslims assimilate. He said Islamists are setting up their own culture within the United States “to overturn our culture.”

“We need to recognize that threat,” he insisted.

He said there are neighborhoods that could be defined as a no-go zone.

“You can call them whatever term you want, but absolutely there are neighborhoods, we have communities of people that don’t want to integrate or assimilate,” he said.

See the interview: vidNOGO

Islam analyst and expert Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch told WND the zones “aren’t here.”

“But they’re coming as the Muslim population grows,” he warned. “We already see areas such as Dearborn, Michigan: It isn’t a no-go zone — police don’t fear to enter there and non-Muslims aren’t menaced for non-adherence to Shariah norms — but police did the bidding of the Muslim community a couple of years ago and arrested some Christian missionaries solely for the crime of preaching to Muslims. A Shariah crime, not a crime according to any U.S. law.”com03

David Yerushalmi of the American Freedom Law Center, which has fought legal battles over the Dearborn disputes, said there aren’t any no-go zones in American right now, but Dearborn comes close. There, evangelical Christians were attacked with rocks and bottles by a Muslim crowd for talking about their faith on public property during an annual Arab festival. When police arrived, they ordered the Christians to leave or face arrest. Several legal cases over the incident have been resolved in favor of the Christians, but a major one, handled by AFLC, is still under way. It has been granted the highly unusual step of a hearing before a full federal appeals court, which previously denied the Christians’ claims.

Yerushalmi said there have been times when first responders have declined to go into certain riot areas for a time because it “would incite the crowd to more violence.”

He said there aren’t the numbers of Muslims in the U.S. population at the moment to form such no-go-zones.

“However, you have demographics which are changing,” he warned.

Islam analyst Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs not only believes the zones are coming, she’s already prepared a strategy to fight them.

“There aren’t large-scale no-go zones here as there are in Europe, but they are coming, because Islam by its very nature is against assimilation into a kaffir (non-Muslim) society. It is supremacist at its core – Islam must dominate and not be dominated,” she told WND.ISIS Beraking the American Cross muslim islamist mafia No Longer IF noislam-300x250

“So while Muslims have assimilated here to a greater degree than they have in Europe, there are growing Muslim areas in some cities (Dearborn, Newark, etc.) and these will continue to grow. Then there are rural Muslim camps where firearms training and other alarming things have been reported,” she said.

She asserted the U.S. should end immigration from Muslim countries.

Geller argued “there is no reliable way to tell a jihadist or jihadi sympathizer from a ‘moderate.’”

She called on Muslim groups in the U.S. “to renounce the aspects of Islam that contradict constitutional freedoms, or face sedition charges if they try to advance those elements.” Geller said that when the U.S. Muslim population “grows to the levels we see in European countries, we will face exactly the same thing that Europe is experiencing now.”Wake up America

Her 18 points to address the problem include:

  • Profiling of Muslims at airports and in hiring in professions in which national security and public safety could be compromised.
  • Investigating foreign funding for mosques in the U.S.
  • Watching for mosques where violence is advocated.
  • Including an accurate depiction of Islam and its violent doctrines in school textbooks.
  • Stopping foreign aid for countries using Shariah, or Islamic law.
  • Denying citizenship to those who support Shariah.

Onetime Muslim terrorist Walid Shoebat has posted a piece online by Keith Davies explaining that no-go zones in the U.K. are areas where even serious crimes are not reported, because they are handled by Shariah rather than British law enforcement.

“Numerous murders and rapes are not reported in these no-go zones because of local justice systems,” he wrote.

WND reported last year that President Obama had thanked Muslims for “building the very fabric of our nation” and claiming they were in part responsible for “the core of our democracy.” But his comments didn’t align with statements from some of the Founders. For example, in 1801, President Jefferson sent the Navy to the Barbary Coast to stop Islamic pirates’ reign of terror on U.S. merchant ships. Jefferson read the Quran to understand what was motivating the pirates, and he learned that the Muslim holy book commanded the faithful to “plunder and enslave” non-Muslims.

In 1814, after Tripoli broke its truce and began attacking U.S. ships again, former President John Adams wrote Jefferson a letter advising that Islam’s founder was “a military fanatic.” In another writing, he condemned Islamic law as “contemptible.” His son and future president, John Quincy Adams, went further, arguing that the essence of Islam is “violence and lust: to exalt the brutal over the spiritual part of human nature.” He suggested the Quran’s commands to fight and conquer other lands “in the cause of Allah” were at odds with democracy, peace and the Judeo-Christian ethic on which America was founded.

“The precept of the Koran is perpetual war against all who deny that Muhammad is the prophet of God,” he added. “The vanquished may purchase their lives by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Muslim creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike by fraud or by force.”

Amid the controversy over the recent Islamic terrorism in Paris, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said she may sue Fox News for its references to no-go zones in the city. Pipes said that as far back as 2006 that France’s Sensitive Urban Zones ranged from two zones in the medieval town of Carcassonne to 12 in the heavily Muslim city of Marseilles. Most towns and cities have at least one, he said. Pipes regularly has updated a 2006 post citing references by politicians, civil leaders and journalists to “no-go zones” in Britain, Germany and Sweden, as well as France.

Soeren Kern, senior fellow of the Gatestone Institute, wrote in 2011, “Islamic extremists are stepping up the creation of ‘no-go’ areas in European cities.”

“Many of the ‘no-go’ zones function as microstates governed by Islamic Shariah law,” he wrote. “Host-country authorities effectively have lost control in these areas and in many instances are unable to provide even basic public aid such as police, fire fighting and ambulance services.”Wake up America

And Spencer noted that in 2002, the New York Times’ David Ignatius wrote of France that “Arab gangs regularly vandalize synagogues here, the North African suburbs have become no-go zones at night, and the French continue to shrug their shoulders.”

Jindal also referenced the zones in a speech in London last weekend. He said in his prepared remarks that “in the West, non-assimilationist Muslims establish enclaves and carry out as much of Shariah law as they can without regard for the laws of the democratic countries which provided them a new home.”

“It is startling to think that any country would allow, even unofficially, for a so-called ‘no-go zone,’” Jindal said. “The idea that a free country would allow for specific areas of its country to operate in an autonomous way that is not free and is in direct opposition to its laws is hard to fathom.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Washington, a “civil rights” group founded as a front by the Muslim Brotherhood, according to the FBI, expressed disappointment in what it called “Muslim bashing.”

Mitch McConnell Did Something Last Night to Senate Dems That Has Them Furious

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) late Thursday left Democrats angry and sputtering on the Senate floor, as he used his new power as majority leader to brush off several Democratic amendments in an effort to speed up work on a bill to approve the Keystone pipeline. McConnell has so far made a point of allowing amendment votes, something Democrats barely allowed for the last few years. Earlier Thursday, McConnell boasted that the Senate had already held more amendment votes on the Keystone bill than Democrats allowed during all of 2014.

“We’ve actually reached a milestone here that I think’s noteworthy for the Senate,” McConnell said after the 15th amendment vote. “This is the way the Senate ought to work.”

But McConnell has also said the Senate can’t work on the Keystone bill forever, a warning that he wants to finish it up at some point in the near future.

Late Thursday night, McConnell said the new open process in the Senate led members of both parties to propose a new wave of amendments that he wanted to deal with immediately. He asked senators for an agreement to vote on a series of 12 amendments right then and there. Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) objected, and said Democrats would be ready to keep working on these amendments on Friday. But McConnell dismissed that and said the Senate should be ready to work on them now. With no agreement, he said his only choice was to start a series of votes to table, or kill, all Democratic amendments.

“Given the fact that they’re reluctant to vote on their own amendments… the only way to go forward is to table their amendments,” he said.

As Democrats protested, McConnell moved to table the first amendment, from Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.). Markey asked several times to have one minute to speak on his amendment — “Mr. President! Mr. President!” he yelled in an effort to stop the process — but McConnell objected, and the Senate voted to kill his amendment.

The same thing happened for other Democratic amendments from Sens. Tom Carper (Del.), Pat Leahy (Vt.), Jack Reed (R.I.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.).

The process led to some sharp debate on Twitter, as Democrats argued that McConnell’s tactics showed he wasn’t serious about an open amendment process. Sen. Clarie McCaskill (D-Mo.) complained that McConnell was only interested in killing Democratic amendments, and wasn’t giving Democrats even one minute to speak about their proposals.t01

Adam Jentleson, spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), tweeted, “So much for open debate. McConnell just denied Markey chance to speak.”

But Dan Holler of Heritage Action, shot back, “How many amendments did Markey have voted on last year?”

t02

Earlier in the debate, Durbin asked why the Senate couldn’t come back into session on Friday morning and handle all the amendments. McConnell has said the Senate would work Fridays, but later adjourned the Senate until Monday, further angering Democrats.

Senate Democrats accused McConnell of breaking his promise to work on Fridays so that Senate Republicans could attend a Friday meeting in California hosted by Charles and David Koch, big contributors to the Republican Party.

Netanyahu ‘spat in our face,’ White House officials said to say

“PM ‘will pay price’ for spat over Congress address; Obama said to have asked him to tone down pro-sanctions rhetoric; Wash. Post: Kerry’s enthusiasm for defending Israel may wane”

The White House’s outrage over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to speak before Congress in March — a move he failed to coordinate with the administration — began to seep through the diplomatic cracks on Friday, with officials telling Haaretz the Israeli leader had “spat” in President Barack Obama’s face.

“We thought we’ve seen everything,” the newspaper quoted an unnamed senior US official as saying. “But Bibi managed to surprise even us.’

There are things you simply don’t do. He spat in our face publicly and that’s no way to behave. Netanyahu ought to remember that President Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency, and that there will be a price,” he said.more evidence

Officials in Washington said that the “chickenshit” epithet — with which an anonymous administration official branded Netanyahu several months ago — was mild compared to the language used in the White House when news of Netanyahu’s planned speech came in.

In his address the Israeli leader is expected to speak about stalled US-led nuclear negotiations with Iran, and to urge lawmakers to slap Tehran with a new round of tougher sanctions in order to force it to comply with international demands. The Mossad intelligence service on Thursday went to the rare length of issuing a press statement to deny claims, cited by Kerry, that its chief Tamir Pardo had told visiting US politicians that he opposed further sanctions.Israels-Back-590-LI

Haaretz reported that Obama had personally demanded that Netanyahu tone down his pro-sanctions rhetoric in a phone call between the two last week. The president has said a sanctions bill would cripple negotiations with Iranian leaders at a critical stage, and has threatened to veto such a bill should it come through.

The Washington Post reported that Netanyahu’s apparent disrespect for the US leadership was particularly offensive to Secretary of State John Kerry, who over the past month had made frenzied efforts on Israel’s behalf on the world stage — making dozens of calls to world leaders to convince them to oppose a UN Security Council resolution which would have set a timeframe for the establishment of a Palestinian state.Back-stabed1

“The secretary’s patience is not infinite,” a source close to Kerry told the Post. “The bilateral relationship is unshakable. But playing politics with that relationship could blunt Secretary Kerry’s enthusiasm for being Israel’s primary defender.”I am from the US Government

The White House said Thursday that Obama would not meet with Netanyahu when he travels to Washington, with a spokeswoman citing a “long-standing practice and principle” by which the president does not meet with heads of state or candidates in close proximity to their elections. Kerry will also not meet with Netanyahu. Netanyahu will be in Washington in part for a March 3 address to a joint session of Congress. House Speaker John Boehner invited Netanyahu to speak to Congress without consulting the Obama administration.

The White House initially reacted icily to Netanyahu’s plans to address Congress, an appearance apparently meant to bolster opposition to a nuclear deal with Iran as it is currently shaping up, as well as opposition to new sanctions against Tehran.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest suggested Wednesday that Netanyahu and Boehner had broken with protocol in not informing Obama of the prime minister’s travel plans.

“We haven’t heard from the Israelis directly about the trip at all,” he said, adding the White House would “reserve judgment” about any possible face-to-face meeting until explanations are made.Obama Muslim collection

“The typical protocol would suggest that the leader of a country would contact the leader of another country when he is traveling there. That is certainly how President Obama’s trips are planned,” explained Earnest.

So this particular event seems to be a departure from that protocol.”Offical Seal

Speaking several hours after Earnest, top US diplomat Kerry said Netanyahu was welcome to give a speech at “any time” in the United States. But Kerry agreed it had been a “little unusual” to hear about the Israeli leader’s speech to US Congress next month from the office of Boehner and not via the usual diplomatic channels.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi, leader of the House Democrats, said that Boehner blundered when he invited Netanyahu to address Congress amid sensitive negotiations about Iran’s nuclear program and in the shadow of Israel’s elections. 

“If that’s the purpose of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s visit two weeks before his own election, right in the midst of our negotiations, I just don’t think it’s appropriate and helpful,” Pelosi told reporters Thursday at her weekly news conference. The speech, Pelosi suggested, could give Netanyahu a political boost in elections a few weeks later and inflame international talks aimed at stopping Iran’s nuclear program.more evidence

Israel is scheduled to hold elections on March 17. Netanyahu confirmed Thursday that he would address Congress in early March. He was initially slated to speak on February 11, but changed the date so he could attend the AIPAC conference.

“The Prime Minister is expected to arrive in the US at the beginning of March and will also participate in the AIPAC conference,” read a statement from the PMO. “The speech in front of both houses of Congress will give the prime minister the opportunity to thank President Barack Obama, Congress, and the American people for their support of Israel.

“I look forward to the opportunity to express before the joint session Israel’s vision for a joint effort to deal with [Islamist terrorism and Iran’s nuclear program], and to emphasize Israel’s commitment to the special bond between our two democracies,” Netanyahu said, according to the statement.

Israel and the United States are close allies, but personal relations between Obama and Netanyahu have reportedly deteriorated over the years. The pair have publicly clashed over Israeli settlement building in the West Bank and about how to tackle Iran’s disputed nuclear program. Obama’s allies fear Netanyahu’s March trip could be used by Israel and by Republicans to rally opposition to a nuclear deal, undercutting years of sensitive negotiations just as they appear poised to bear fruit.

In November the already faltering ties between the leaders were served a new blow when an anonymous US official was quoted calling Netanyahu a “chickenshit” in an article published by journalist Jeffrey Goldberg in the American magazine The Atlantic. The article portrayed the rift between the United States and Israel as a “full-blown crisis.”OBAMA CARTOONS, THROW ISRAEL UNDER THE BUS

MIT Climate Scientist: Global Warming Believers a ‘Cult’


by Howie Carr21 Jan 2015Boston, MA

“As with any cult, once the mythology of the cult begins falling apart, instead of saying, oh, we were wrong, they get more and more fanatical. I think that’s what’s happening here. Think about it,” he said. “You’ve led an unpleasant life, you haven’t led a very virtuous life, but now you’re told, you get absolution if you watch your carbon footprint. It’s salvation!”nature worshiped by the Leftist

Lindzen, 74, has issued calm dismissals of warmist apocalypse, reducing his critics to sputtering rage.

Last week, government agencies including NASA announced that 2014 was the “hottest year” in “recorded history,” as The New York Times put it in an early edition. Last year has since been demoted by the Times to the hottest “since record-keeping began in 1880.”

But that may not be true. Now the same agencies have acknowledged that there’s only a 38 percent chance that 2014 was the hottest year on record. And even if it was, it was only by two-100ths of a degree.com01

Lindzen scoffs at the public-sector-generated hysteria, which included one warmist blogger breathlessly writing that the heat record had been “shattered.”

“Seventy percent of the earth is oceans, we can’t measure those temperatures very well. They can be off a half a degree, a quarter of a degree. Even two-10ths of a degree of change would be tiny but two-100ths is ludicrous. Anyone who starts crowing about those numbers shows that they’re putting spin on nothing.”Worship manditory

Last week, after scoffing at Vermont socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ call for a Senate vote on global warming, Lindzen was subjected to another barrage of diatribes. At his listed MIT phone number, Prof. Lindzen received a typical anonymous call:

“I think people like you should actually be in jail,” the male caller told him, “because you must know where this is all leading now… the people you support and take your money from to make these outrageously anti-human comments (also ‘know’)… In other words, you’re a sociopath!”more evidence

Lindzen chuckled when the voicemail was replayed.

This writer asked him if, as has been alleged in some of the warmist blogs, he is taking money from the energy industry.

“Oh, it would be great!” he said with a laugh. “You have all these people, the Gores and so on, making hundreds of millions of dollars on this, Exxon Mobil giving $100 million to Stanford for people who are working on promoting this hysteria. The notion that the fossil-fuel industry cares – they don’t. As long as they can pass the costs on to you, it’s a new profit center.”

Lindzen said he was fortunate to have gained tenure just as the “climate change” movement was beginning, because now non-believers are often ostracized in academia. In his career he has watched the hysteria of the 1970’s over “global cooling” morph into “global warming.”

“They use climate to push an agenda. But what do you have left when global warming falls apart? Global normalcy? We have to do something about ‘normalcy?’”

As for CO2, Lindzen said that until recently, periods of greater warmth were referred to as “climate optimum.” Optimum is derived from a Latin word meaning “best.”

“Nobody ever questioned that those were the good periods. All of a sudden you were able to inculcate people with the notion that you have to be afraid of warmth.”

The warmists’ ultimate solution is to reduce the standard of living for most of mankind. That proposition is being resisted most vigorously by nations with developing economies such as China and India, both of which have refused to sign on to any restrictive, Obama-backed climate treaties. Lindzen understands their reluctance.

“Anything you do to impoverish people, and certainly all the planned policies will impoverish people, is actually costing lives. But the environmental movement has never cared about that.”Worship manditory

D.C. lawmakers float bill to allow voting without U.S. citizenship


– The Washington Times – Tuesday, January 20, 2015

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jan/20/dc-lawmakers-float-bill-voting-without-citizenship/

A bill introduced by D.C. lawmakers would grant some immigrants lacking U.S. citizenship the ability to vote in municipal elections. The Local Resident Voting Rights Act of 2015 would allow D.C. residents who are not U.S. citizens but meet the federal definition of having permanent residency status to cast ballots in local elections, including races for mayor and the D.C. Council as well as initiatives and charter referendums. D.C. Council member David Grosso, at-large independent, introduced the legislation Tuesday.

In a statement announcing the introduction of the bill, Mr. Grosso cited statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau that indicate the District is home to nearly 54,000 foreign-born residents who are not naturalized U.S. citizens.

“These are taxpayers who should have the opportunity to have their voices heard in local elections,” he said.more evidence

Similar bills were unsuccessfully introduced in 2013 by Mr. Grosso, and in 2004 by then-D.C. Council member Jim Graham.

57,762,169 Abortions in America Since Roe vs. Wade in 1973


by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 1/21/15

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.lifenews.com/2015/01/21/57762169-abortions-in-america-since-roe-vs-wade-in-1973/

The United States marks 42 years of legalized abortion in all fifty states at any time for any reason throughout pregnancy on January 22nd, the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. Since that time, there have been approximately 57,762,169 abortions that have destroyed the lives of unborn children.

How is that number calculated?

A few years ago, in the document, “Abortion Statistics: United States Data and Trends,” National Right to Life Committee education director Dr. Randall K. O’Bannon issued an estimate of the number of abortions tabulated annually by the Centers for Disease Control and the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute up to that point.

pregnantwoman40Guttmacher receives numbers directly from abortion centers themselves and is the prime source for more current figures because the Centers for Disease Control has never tabulated accurate numbers of abortions. The CDC provides some help in tabulating abortion figures, but it relies on figures from state health departments, some of which rely on voluntary reporting — and it hasn’t had data from some states such as California and New Hampshire for more than a decade.

“Because of these different methods of data collection, GI has consistently obtained higher counts than the CDC. CDC researchers have admitted it probably undercounts the total number of abortions because reporting laws vary from state to state and some abortionists probably do not report or under-report the abortions they perform,” O’Bannon says.

Then, last year, O’Bannon calculated there had been over 56.6 million abortions — using Guttmacher estimates to determine the approximate number of abortions for 2013.

“Thus the 56 million+ figure comes from the mathematical application of the assumption that the Guttmacher numbers will roughly reflect the same declining percentage in the number of abortions that the CDC found,” he said at the time.

Since then, Guttmacher released a new report showing 1.1 million abortions in 2011 and showing abortions declining toLet God historic lows. That report came early in 2014 and the CDC issued a report late last year. The CDC showed that from 2010 to 2011, the total number and rate of reported abortions decreased 5% and the abortion ratio decreased 4%, and from 2002 to 2011.

Because neither agency has abortion figures since 2011, abortions for years after that must be estimated based on old data. Because Guttmacher has the more accurate abortion records of the two, their figure of 1.1 million abortions is the most reliable per year. Adding that to last year’s total yields 57,762,169 — a number that may admittedly be adjusted slightly downwards assuming the trend of fewer abortions continues after the last reported totals from 2011.

O’Bannon previously had some excellent insights into the abortion totals:

The long term trend is fewer abortions, and the number is down significantly from 1990 when the country saw 1.6 million abortions a year. As one measure of the impact your work has had, if the number of abortions had remained at 1.6 million, more than seven MILLION more babies would have died.

The publication of data from the CDC last November is good reason to believe there is a new major downward trend. We obviously can’t know in advance whether the numbers Guttmacher will publish later this year will show the same drop off.Third of our generation

Despite the seeming precision, this is not an exact number. No such number is possible. There will always be missed abortions, missed abortionists. Adjustments, however careful, will always be imprecise. But given the data we have, we feel it is reasonable to assume that we have now seen at least 57 million lives lost since Roe. Of course, we all know that we are talking about more than just numbers or statistics. The blood of more than 57 million aborted babies represents an enormous stain on our national conscience and a heavy burden on our hearts.Picture14 Picture15

But these numbers also show us that our efforts have not been in vain. As noted above, if our nation had continued at the rate of 1.6 million abortions a year we saw in 1990, our cumulative total would have been approaching 64 million by now. That would translate into approximately 7 million more babies alive today than would have otherwise been the case. That is the equivalent to the number of abortions performed over a span of six to seven years–living human beings alive today because of you!

Of course the Movement has a long way to go to return full legal protection to unborn children. But never underestimate the importance of what you, grassroots pro-life America, are doing.

What you do makes a real difference.Freedom with Prayer

President ignores Yemen, Feinstein Calls for Embassy Evacuation – UPDATED

In September, Obama touted Yemen as a success story!

LI #13 Yemen 2 Failed State

Sometimes, more can be learned from what a world leader fails to say.

One of the topics President Obama failed to cover in his State of the Union address is the situation in Yemen, a country that has descended so far into chaos that two U.S. Navy warships now stand ready to evacuate Americans from the Embassy.

Just prior to the President’s speech, California Senator Dianne Feinstein urged that the embassy be closed immediately and the personnel evacuated.

The U.S. government should immediately close and evacuate the U.S. Embassy in Sana’a, Yemen, according to Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Democratic vice-chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

I asked her today whether the embassy, which remains open despite raging violence throughout the Yemeni capital, should be closed. She responded: “Based on what I know so far, yes.”

“I’m very concerned about our embassy there, who is still there, who isn’t still there, and what the plans are,” Feinstein added.

Contrast this to what the President said of Yemen just last September:

President Obama recently told Thomas L. Friedman of The Times that failing to help Libya form a new state after the fall of Qaddafi was his biggest foreign policy regret. Yet the fate of that country has been largely absent from discussions about the new war, which is certain to last longer and unleash a wider array of consequences.

Instead, Mr. Obama, in making the case for carrying out airstrikes against the Islamic State, drew a dubious parallel to counterterrorism efforts in Yemen, which he billed as successful.

While dangerous Al Qaeda offshoot organizations in tribal areas of southern Yemen have been weakened by drone strikes, calling Yemen a success story is absurd.Obama Muslim collection

Not only absurd, but potentially dangerous to Americans in that country. Just because Obama scrubbed any mention of Benghazi doesn’t mean we have forgotten the lives lost there.

VICE News recently compiled a video, “Yemen: A Failed State”:

vid VICE NEWS

Heavily featured in this analysis is another group that somehow escaped mention in the year’s State of the Union Address: Al-Qaeda. It appears as if these terrorists are no longer on the run; their Yemen branch claimed credit for the Charlie Hebdo slaughter.

Richard Spencer, Middle East Editor for The Telegraph, has a substantive analysis of region — pointing out the clear winner (Iran, as supporter of the Yemen rebel group) and the obvious losers in recent events.

An Iranian politician close to that country’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, could not contain himself. Ali Reza Zakani, an MP, boasted that Sana’a [Yemen’s capital] was now the fourth Arab capital in Iranian hands – after Beirut (through Hizbollah), Damascus (through President Assad) and Baghdad (through Iraq’s democratically elected Shia-led government).

…[O]on the surface, a stunning blow for the West. The US and UK – and regional allies like Saudi Arabia – strongly backed a political settlement in Yemen following an “Arab Spring” uprising against the country’s long-time leader, President Ali Abdullah Saleh, in late 2011.

That put a pro-western replacement, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, in office, presiding over a parliament that was supposed to represent all shades of Yemeni political thinking apart from al-Qaeda, which is strong in some southern and eastern parts of the country.Wake up America

Truly, more was learned last night about the state of the Union by figuring out what Obama failed to mention. Let’s just hope our people come back home safely.

U.S. Embassy in Yemen set to evacuate

“U.S. Navy on alert”

us embassy yemen

Yemen is in chaos.

For the past two days, Shiite Houthi rebels have laid siege to the presidential palace. Now, reports claim that the rebels have seized the palace; and the status of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi remains unknown. Although the Houthi rebels are not targeting Americans—at least for the time being—U.S. officials are preparing for the possibility of a “non permissive environment,” meaning that the city of Sana’a will have descended into combat-like conditions.

Unfortunately for Americans in Yemen, evacuation isn’t simply a matter of driving to the airport and hopping a flight.

CNN explains:

If an evacuation is ordered, the first option would be to have embassy personnel drive to the commercial airport in Sanaa and fly out, the official said. But in the wake of an embassy car being fired Tuesday, the safety of the roads in the capital is now being constantly evaluated, the official said. If embassy workers did drive to the airport it is likely some sort of air cover would be provided, under the current plan.

Other detailed military planning for various options has been finalized, the official said. Those options would be used if a request for military assistance were made.

If helicopters and V-22 aircraft from the ships are sent to Sanaa, it would be a complex operation that could last for several days to fully evacuate “several hundred Americans” from the embassy, the official cautioned. “Nobody should think this would be easy.”

The Houthi rebels claim that they’re working for a more democratic Yemen, but analysts are skeptical of the group’s claims, and worry that a successful coup could lead to further radicalization.

The Houthis are an offshoot of Shiite Islam that is known as Zaydism, and they have put together a militia that has been fighting the central government on and off for the past decade.

The Houthi leader, Abdulmalik al-Houthi, 33, is considered a saint by his followers. The militia, which is widely believed to be backed by Iran, claims it is willing to work with other groups in Yemen and would like a democracy.

But the majority Sunnis feel threatened by the minority Houthis, whose rise could easily lead to increased sectarian friction in Yemen, the poorest of the 22 Arab countries.

“Yemen could become another Afghanistan — a failed state dominated by warlords and extremists, and with even fewer prospects for the young revolutionaries who just three years ago thought their nightmare had ended,” Middle East analyst Robin Wright wrote in The Wall Street Journal.

Unrest has plagued Yemen since 2004, when now-rebels revolted over perceived discrimination on the part of the majority Sunni government. In September, the rebels began to move out of their traditional strongholds in north Yemen and into new territory.

As of right now, plans are to evacuate only State Department personnel if conditions deteriorate; U.S. officials haven’t yet decided whether or not to extend evacuation orders to other Americans in Yemen.
