These 19 States Have Religious Freedom Laws Similar to Indiana’s. Here’s What That Means.

Gov. Mike Pence gained national attention when he signed the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law last week. It caused the Twitter hashtag #BoycottIndiana to go viral and triggered Apple CEO Tim Cook to pen a Washington Post op-ed calling “pro-discrimination” laws “dangerous.” Yet, despite the uproar, Indiana isn’t alone in enacting legislation that seeks to protect the religious freedom of its citizens.

Religious Freedom Restoration Acts—or what critics call “pro-discrimination” laws—have been around for over two decades.  Religious Freedom Restoration Acts first came about after the Supreme Court’s 1990 decision in Employment Division v. Smith, which “narrowed protections for the free exercise of religion.” In response to the court’s ruling, Congress sought to restore religious freedom by passing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, popularly known as RFRA. The legislation won unanimous support in the House, passed 97-3 in the Senate, and was signed into law by then-President Bill Clinton.

Since then, in addition to Indiana, 19 states have passed their own state-level Religious Freedom Restoration Acts: Alabama, Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Another 11 states have RFRA-like protections provided by state court decisions.

religfreedommaps-1_v2

Under Indiana’s new law, “[T]he state cannot substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion unless it is furthering a compelling government interest and acting in the least restrictive way possible.”

Critics say the legislation will enable business owners to discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation—or as Hillary Clinton put it, because of “who they love.” They also argue Indiana’s religious freedom law, which goes into effect in July, is more loosely written than other RFRAs. Pence has said that he plans to “clarify” the law’s intent.

But those who support RFRAs—including The Heritage Foundation’s Ryan Anderson, who researches and writes about marriage and religious liberty—argue RFRAs are not written to be “anti-gay.” Anderson says Indiana’s RFRA does not allow business owners to refuse service based on a person’s sexual orientation. He argues that the law provides those with strong religious beliefs a shield from being discriminated against for dissenting against popular opinions about marriage or other faith-based matters.

“This debate has nothing to do with refusing to serve gays simply because they’re gay, and this law wouldn’t protect that,” he told The Daily Signal.

The religious liberty concern centers on the reasonable belief that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. The question is whether the government should discriminate against these citizens, should the government coerce them into helping to celebrate a same-sex wedding and penalize them if they try to lead their lives in accordance with their faith? A Religious Freedom Restoration Act could protect these citizens. But it might not.

But Indiana is different than some other states that have RFRAs in at least one way. Unlike Connecticut, Illinois, New Mexico, and Rhode Island, which in addition to RFRAs, also passed some form of legislation explicitly banning the discrimination against people based on their sexual orientation, Indiana doesn’t have a law on the books that specifically protects against the discrimination of gays and lesbians.

religfreedommaps-3_v2

Critics of Indiana’s new law say because there is no state law protecting gays and lesbians (only measures in certain cities throughout the state), those people may be discriminated against through the RFRA. They also fear supporters of the RFRA will use it to undermine the few local nondiscrimination laws that do exist in cities like Indianapolis.

Those in favor of RFRA laws argue nondiscrimination legislation shouldn’t matter much in the eyes of the court because there have been no cases to date where business owners refused service simply based on a person’s sexual orientation. There have been instances where business owners refused service to gay and lesbian customers—like when a 70-year-old florist from Washington would not design floral arrangements for a same-sex marriage.

Unknown

But in those situations, the business owners who denied service said they should not be forced to contribute to a religious ceremony that conflicts with their religious beliefs.AMEN

“I did serve Rob,” Barronelle Stutzman, the Washington florist, told The Daily Signal in an earlier interview. “It’s the event that I turned down, not the service for Rob or his partner.” Still, Washington state—which doesn’t have a RFRA—ruled against Stutzman, finding her in violation of the state’s anti-discrimination and consumer protection laws.

Cases such as Stutzman’s are why many religious freedom advocates argue that it’s important that states adopt RFRAs as protections. “The law doesn’t say who will win,” Anderson said. “Only that a court should review, using a well-established balancing test, and hold the government accountable to justify its action.”

The ACLU’s Hypocritical Defense of Laws That Violate Religious Liberty

Commentary By Carson Holloway;

One of the great ironies of our politics is that the American Civil Liberties Union is now actually hostile to traditional American civil liberties.

acluThis is the conclusion one must draw from a letter the organization has sent to the House of Representatives, seeking to defend two District of Columbia laws that, under the guise of enforcing non-discrimination, undermine the First Amendment rights of private organizations. Essentially, the ACLU seeks to defend regulations that require religious universities to provide their facilities for the use of student LGBT advocacy groups and that forbid religious organizations from firing employees whose personal conduct violates the morality to which the organizations are dedicated.

As I explain at greater length at Public Discourse, the ACLU’s zeal for “non-discrimination” here directly infringes on not just one but two fundamental constitutional freedoms—freedoms that the ACLU was originally founded to protect. 

to the rightUnder the First Amendment, Americans enjoy the freedom of speech. The Supreme Court has long held that this freedom includes as well a freedom of association. Since individuals have a right to free speech, they also have a right to band together and form organizations that exist to promote their views. This is precisely the constitutional freedom that is being exercised by organizations that are constituted to promote a particular moral and religious worldview, and that in pursuit of that aim must choose to employ and support only those who will assist them in this undertaking.

This principle should be precious to any freedom-loving American, regardless of partisanship or ideology.  Without it, no Americans of any point of view could reliably cooperate in order to promote their shared ideas. Discarding this principle would permit the government to frustrate their efforts by making them employ or otherwise cooperate with people bent on undermining rather than advancing the organization’s cause. Since individuals usually are not powerful enough to make themselves heard without joining in associations with others, freedom of association is necessary to any effective form of freedom of speech.

There is, however, an additional problem. The organizations whose liberties the ACLU seeks to curtail are religious organizations, which means that their freedom to operate is protected not only by the First Amendment’s protection for freedom of speech and freedom of association, but also by its explicit protection for the “free exercise” of “religion.”tebow

It is impossible for individuals to freely exercise their religion without permitting them to join into associations for that purpose.  And such associations are rendered effectively useless if they must employ and otherwise work with people hostile to their purposes.

Again, these freedoms should be defended by all Americans. The ACLU is organized with a view to the defense of certain principles.  In its mission it has often been aided by liberal religious organizations.

Neither the ACLU nor its allies could carry on their political and legal activism if the law could require them to employ people opposed to their purposes. To the extent that the ACLU wants this freedom for itself, it should respect it in others as well.  This is the American way.

Thatcher Expert: The Iron Lady Would Be ‘Appalled’ By Obama

A visitor to America might think Democrats won last fall’s election and that Republicans lost. Why? Because, when observers connect the dots, Republicans are on defense, ceding legislative powers to an aggressive executive branch in an unprecedented manner.

Despite electoral losses for his party, President Obama is on offense. He is now testing the radical proposition of having his secretary of state negotiate a nuclear weapons deal with the world’s leading state sponsor of jihadist terror without having the Senate ratify the treaty. How? By naming it an “agreement” rather than a “treaty,” and by seeking its authority through the United Nations rather than Congress.Picture2

As Andrew C. McCarthy wrote this month, “It is otherworldly to find an American administration conspiring against the Constitution and the Congress in cahoots with a terror-sponsoring enemy regime, with which we do not even have formal diplomatic relations, in order to pave the enemy’s way to nuclear weapons, of all things.”

Nile Gardiner, the Heritage Foundation’s Director of the Margaret Thatcher Center, calls this development “astonishing” and “imperialistic” in this video interview. “If the British Prime Minister decided to strike a deal with a rogue regime against the wishes of Parliament, that Prime Minister wouldn’t last very long,” Gardiner explains. “There’d be a rebellion and revolt. There’d be a vote of no confidence. That’s the difference in our systems of government.”Tyrant Obama obama- Marxist tyrant Imperial President Obama

Dr. Gardiner praised Sen. Tom Cotton and the 46 Republicans who warned Iran that any deal would not last beyond Obama’s term in office. The Cotton letter has resulted in leftist protests and bizarre calls for his prosecution under the Logan Act as an “act of treason” for trying to restrain President Obama’s and Secretary of State John Kerry’s Iranian negotiations.

Does a country with porous borders still have its national sovereignty? The concept of national sovereignty, according to Gardiner, doesn’t mean much to the left who are in power right now. Rather, they seek governance from supra-nationalist organizations. “Once you allow the United Nations to start dictating U.S. policies, America is no longer a sovereign and free nation.”Picture3

Asked for what Margaret Thatcher might say of world affairs, Gardiner ventures to guess, “She’d be pretty appalled at the state of affairs today. She would be warning the free world that the West has to mobilize to face an array of threats — the rise of Islamic militancy in the Middle East and Europe, the specter of nuclear Iran on the horizon and the resurgence of an imperialist Russia. She would have been rallying the leaders of the West to stand up against evil that is rising up.”

Gardiner also discusses Russia’s aggression in Eastern Europe, and the Islamic threat in Europe in this two-part video interview.

Here’s Two Reasons Why Hillary’s Email Server Was Scrubbed


Posted by “The Right Curmudgeon”, Mar 28, 2015

collection

And both reasons add up to “it’s none of your damn business.”  After all she IS Hillary and she answers to different standards than the rest of the world.  And Hillary’s email is at the top of the list of things that are none of your business.

  1. The first reason is foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation.  The Foundation was barred from accepting donations from foreign countries while Hillary was Secretary of State.  It appears that they got around that by accepting multi-million dollar contributions from foreign individuals instead. It’s very likely that the server held emails related to those donations and under the definitions used by Hillary’s lawyers, those would not have been archived and would have been wiped from the server.
  2. The second reason relates directly to Benghazi.

Starting weeks before Islamic militants attacked the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, longtime Clinton family confidante Sidney Blumenthal supplied intelligence to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gathered by a secret network that included a former CIA clandestine service officer, according to hacked emails from Blumenthal’s account.Clinton Obama

[…]

Blumenthal’s emails to Clinton, which were directed to her private email account, include at least a dozen detailed reports on events on the deteriorating political and security climate in Libya as well as events in other nations. They came to light after a hacker broke into Blumenthal’s account and have taken on new significance in light of the disclosure that she conducted State Department and personal business exclusively over an email server that she controlled and kept secret from State Department officials and which only recently was discovered by congressional investigators.Party of Deciet and lies

If you take the time to read everything Hillary and her mouthpieces have said about what they turned over to the State Department, they always talk about “her emails.”  A Clintonesque parsing of that term would exclude email FROM others to Hillary.  After all, everything depends on the meaning of “is.”  The State Department says that Blumenthal’s emails were turned over to them and that they turned them over to the Committee.  And we have some great land in Florida for you to build your retirement home.

Blumenthal’s emails raise a number of other questions, chief among them would be, does Blumenthal have a security clearance?  What was he doing working on Benghazi related matters, he wasn’t a State Department employee, nor, to our knowledge, was he a contractor.

It’s unclear who tasked Blumenthal, known for his fierce loyalty to the Clintons, with preparing detailed intelligence briefs. It’s also not known who was paying him, or where the operation got its money. The memos were marked “confidential” and relied in many cases on “sensitive” sources in the Libyan opposition and Western intelligence and security services. Other reports focused on Egypt, Germany, and Turkey.

Indeed, though they were sent under Blumenthal’s name, the reports appear to have been gathered and prepared by Tyler Drumheller, a former chief of the CIA’s clandestine service in Europe who left the agency in 2005.Really with logo

The State Department has declined comment on the issue, and even if they did comment, it would come from Marie Harf.  Barf.  Hillary is, thus far, silent on the issue as well. Picture6

BREAKING: Top Iranian Official DEFECTS, Drops Bombshell About Barack Obama


Posted by Conservative Tribune

New York John Kerry, Mohammad Javad ZarifAs the deadline for an agreement draws near, it is looking more and more like the proposed nuclear deal with Iran is a really bad deal.

Not that we didn’t already know this, as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned about a bad deal, as has a majority of Congress.

But now comes confirmation of just how one-sided the negotiations have been, straight from a top Iranian official in Switzerland for the nuclear talks who has defected to the West.

“The US negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf with other members of the 5+1 countries and convince them of a deal,” said Amir Hossein Motaghi, exposing U.S. President Barack Obama’s seeming obsession with reaching any sort of deal with Iran.muslim-obama Islamapologist Obama Muslim collection

Motaghi was a close media aide for Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and was the head of his public relations team and social media efforts during his 2013 election campaign. But now, according to The U.K. Telegraph, Motaghi has sought asylum in Switzerland, denouncing both the government of his home country and the ongoing nuclear talks. Motaghi said that he quit his job with the Iran Students Correspondents Association, having become disillusioned with his job as a reporter due to the fact that he was only allowed to write about what he was told to write about.

“My conscience would not allow me to carry out my profession in this manner any more,” said Motaghi, as he went on to reveal that a number of so-called “journalists” at the nuclear talks are only there to ensure that all news makes it back to Iran through the proper channels.

This man took a courageous step to expose the ongoing nuclear talks and can likely never return to Tehran, as he would probably be arrested and forgotten in prison. Hopefully, as more information surrounding the one-sided horribleness of the impending nuclear deal leaks out, it will prove too much.

It seems that the best possible outcome now would be for the talks to fall apart, dashing Obama’s hopes for his legacy moment — proclaiming peace in our time while Iran celebrates nukes in no time. Picture6

 

Reporter says John Kerry answered ‘Allah willing’ – in Arabic- when asked if nuke deal would happen

Secretary of State John Kerry allegedly responded in a most unusual way to a reporter’s question Friday whether a nuclear arms deal could be reached with Iran before the March 31 deadline.

Allah willing,” Kerry replied — in Arabic, according to Laura Rozen, a reporter covering the Iran nuclear talks in Lausanne, Switzerland, for the Washington, D.C.-based online publication, Al-Monitor.

As news reached the public Friday that a deal may be forthcoming, Rozen tweeted:

“Inshallah” is Arabic for “Allah willing,” according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary.

Rosen followed up a minute later with this tweet:

The Persecution of Christians in America is Growing – Evidence Below


Campus Christian group deactivated at CA college, but wait till you hear why (Video)

Evidence of the Growing Persecution of Christians in The United States of America

Cal State StanislausThink if it as a variation on the Groucho Marx quip about not wanting to belong to a club that would have people like him as members.

According to Fox affiliate KMVT, California State University at Stanislaus has deactivated its chapter of Chi Alpha, a national Christian fellowship group, because one of the organization’s requirements — that its leadership be Christian — discriminates against non-Christians.

The article quotes Cal State Associate Vice President Tim Lynch as explaining:

What they cannot be is faith-based where someone has to have a profession of faith to be that leader…. Every club is allowed to establish its own standards for how leaders are selected as long as it’s non-discriminatory.cause of deathCP 01

Matthew Jacob, a city councilman, claims that if any discrimination is taking place, it is religious discrimination — and it is against  Chi Alpha. In a letter to the university’s chancellor, Jacob wrote:

It goes against the very purpose of the organization to begin with, to have somebody that doesn’t even uphold that faith system to be teaching and mentoring other students in that capacity.

Chi Alpha responded itself in a statement asking:

How can we function as a Christian group without Christian leaders in our group? How can someone lead us if they don’t follow our mission?

The policy might at least be defensible if it were applied consistently to all campus groups, but the university fails to practice what it preaches. As Lynch himself acknowledges in the video below, fraternities and sororities are granted a gender exemption.

In addition, the university sponsors an Asian Pacific Islander Club, a Hmong Student Association, and an Indian Student Association, none of which presumably is forced to open its leadership to nonmembers of those cultural groups.

Ryan: GOP will have ‘immediate response’ for ObamaCare court ruling


 

By Sarah Ferris – 03/27/15

Complete Message

Paul Ryan, Obamacare. Getty Images

When the Supreme Court drops its big ObamaCare ruling this summer, Republican leaders say they will be fully ready to step in — even if it won’t be the party’s official replacement plan.

“We have to be prepared, by the time the ruling comes, to have something. Not months later,” House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told reporters this week.

Ryan said he plans to have a bill ready — and priced by the Congressional Budget Office — by late June when a ruling for King v. Burwell is expected. The GOP-backed case, which threatens to erase people’s subsidies in about three-quarters of states, has tremendously high stakes.

“There are going to be 37 states immediately impacted, or presumably impacted, and that’s something that deserves an immediate response,” Ryan told reporters.

He declined to provide details about the plan that he and other GOP chairmen are drafting, but said it would offer “freedom” and “more choices” for any ObamaCare customers who loses their subsidies. Until the ruling, he said King v. Burwell will be one of his top three agenda items. If the Republicans win, they will use a budget tool known as reconciliation to move the healthcare legislation. Bills written under the reconciliation process cannot be filibustered in the Senate, and as such are more likely to reach President Obama’s desk.

Ryan’s committee was one of several in the House to be given reconciliation instructions, which he said he would use on ObamaCare if he gets the chance. The potential fallout from King v. Burwell has sent Republicans into a scramble to find a short-term solution that prevents people from losing their healthcare plans without making ObamaCare any more permanent. But Ryan stressed that the case has not distracted from the Republican’s overall goal of creating a comprehensive backup plan to the full ObamaCare law.  

“Once we deal with [King v. Burwell], I fully intend on articulating what we ought to replace the whole thing with,” he said. “Not knowing what’s going to happen with King v. Burwell will determine when we get to more robust replacement of ObamaCare,” he added.

Republicans in Congress are under even more pressure to create a plan B for ObamaCare subsidies because the federal government maintains that the healthcare law cannot work without them, putting pressure on the court to again uphold the law.

“The president is saying he doesn’t have a backup plan. I just don’t think that’s responsible,” Ryan said. “We need to have a backup plan.”Dupe and Chains

Ryan has been meeting regularly with House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) and Rep. John Kline (R-Minn.) to draft the House GOP plan. Their work is in conjunction with a Senate planning group led by Senate Republican Policy Committee Chairman John Barrasso (R-Wyo.). Both the House and Senate groups released their own frameworks of their plans the week of the King v. Burwell arguments — another posture to the court.

14-Week-Old Unborn Baby Starts Clapping in the Womb as Parents Sing a Nursery Rhyme

She said, “At our 14 week ultrasound our baby was clapping, so I sang a song with our doctor as my husband filmed. The experience is one I’ll never forget. The baby clapped three times, then the doctor rewound and scrubbed it while we sang. No mystery. It was amazing.”

As LifeNews previously reported, a recent study published in Infant Behavior and Development revealed that babies in the womb are able to recognize words and even remember nursery rhymes if their mom repeats them between weeks 28 and 34.

Another study published in the February 2014 Pediatrics suggested that the more words a preterm baby hears while in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), the more they respond with sounds of their own. This means that preemies could be developing speech patterns in the NICU. Additionally, the study found that an increased amount of parent talk was linked to higher language and thinking scores when the babies were older.

Imperial President Obama Strikes Again – This Time it’s Dangerous to an Entire Nation


US Declassifies Document Revealing Israel’s Nuclear Program

Obama revenge for Netanyahu’s Congress talk? 1987 report on Israel’s top secret nuclear program released in unprecedented move. 

By Ari Yashar, Matt Wanderman, First Publish: 3/25/2015

In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel’s nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent. But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.Why Does Obama Hate IsraelBack-stabed1OBAMA CARTOONS, THROW ISRAEL UNDER THE BUS

The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu’s March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.

Another highly suspicious aspect of the document is that while the Pentagon saw fit to declassify sections on Israel’s sensitive nuclear program, it kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document.

The 386-page report entitled “Critical Technological Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations” gives a detailed description of how Israel advanced its military technology and developed its nuclear infrastructure and research in the 1970s and 1980s.

Israel is “developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs. That is, codes which detail fission and fusion processes on a microscopic and macroscopic level,” reveals the report, stating that in the 1980s Israelis were reaching the ability to create bombs considered a thousand times more powerful than atom bombs.

The revelation marks a first in which the US published in a document a description of how Israel attained hydrogen bombs.

The report also notes research laboratories in Israel “are equivalent to our Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories,” the key labs in developing America’s nuclear arsenal.

Israel’s nuclear infrastructure is “an almost exact parallel of the capability currently existing at our National Laboratories,” it adds.

“As far as nuclear technology is concerned the Israelis are roughly where the U.S. was in the fission weapon field in about 1955 to 1960,” the report reveals, noting a time frame just after America tested its first hydrogen bomb. Institute for Defense Analysis, a federally funded agency operating under the Pentagon, penned the report back in 1987.

Aside from nuclear capabilities, the report revealed Israel at the time had “a totally integrated effort in systems development throughout the nation,” with electronic combat all in one “integrated system, not separated systems for the Army, Navy and Air Force.” It even acknowledged that in some cases, Israeli military technology “is more advanced than in the U.S.”

Declassifying the report comes at a sensitive timing as noted above, and given that the process to have it published was started three years ago, that timing is seen as having been the choice of the American government. US journalist Grant Smith petitioned to have the report published based on the Freedom of Information Act. Initially the Pentagon took its time answering, leading Smith to sue, and a District Court judge to order the Pentagon to respond to the request. Smith, who heads the Institute for Research: Middle East Policy, reportedly said he thinks this is the first time the US government has officially confirmed that Israel is a nuclear power, a status that Israel has long been widely known to have despite being undeclared.muslim-obama Picture6

U.S. Caves to Key Iranian Demands as Nuke Deal Comes Together

“Limited options for Congress as Obama seeks to bypass lawmakers”

LAUSSANE, Switzerland—The Obama administration is giving in to Iranian Imperial Islamic President Obamademands about the scope of its nuclear program as negotiators work to finalize a framework agreement in the coming days, according to sources familiar with the administration’s position in the negotiations. U.S. negotiators are said to have given up ground on demands that Iran be forced to disclose the full range of its nuclear activities at the outset of a nuclear deal, a concession experts say would gut the verification the Obama administration has vowed would stand as the crux of a deal with Iran.

Until recently, the Obama administration had maintained that it would guarantee oversight on Tehran’s program well into the future, and that it would take the necessary steps to ensure that oversight would be effective. The issue has now emerged as a key sticking point in the talks. Concern from sources familiar with U.S. concessions in the talks comes amid reports that Iran could be permitted to continue running nuclear centrifuges at an underground site once suspected of housing illicit activities. This type of concession would allow Iran to continue work related to its nuclear weapons program, even under the eye of international inspectors. If Iran removes inspectors—as it has in the past—it would be left with a nuclear infrastructure immune from a strike by Western forces.more evidence

“Once again, in the face of Iran’s intransigence, the U.S. is leading an effort to cave even more toward Iran—this time by whitewashing Tehran’s decades of lying about nuclear weapons work and current lack of cooperation with the [International Atomic Energy Agency],” said one Western source briefed on the talks but who was not permitted to speak on record.

With the White House pressing to finalize a deal, U.S. diplomats have moved further away from their demands that Iran be subjected to oversight over its nuclear infrastructure.

“Instead of ensuring that Iran answers all the outstanding questions about the past and current military dimensions of their nuclear work in order to obtain sanctions relief, the U.S. is now revising down what they need to do,” said the source.  “That is a terrible mistake—if we don’t have a baseline to judge their past work, we can’t tell if they are cheating in the future, and if they won’t answer now, before getting rewarded, why would they come clean in the future?”Party of Deciet and lies

The United States is now willing to let Iran keep many of its most controversial military sites closed to inspectors until international sanctions pressure has been lifted, according to sources.Why

This scenario has been criticized by nuclear experts, including David Albright, founder and president of the Institute for Science and International Security. Albright told Congress in November that “a prerequisite for any comprehensive agreement is for the IAEA to know when Iran sought nuclear weapons, how far it got, what types it sought to develop, and how and where it did this work.” … “The IAEA needs a good baseline of Iran’s military nuclear activities, including the manufacturing of equipment for the program and any weaponization related studies, equipment, and locations,” Albright said.

One policy expert familiar with the concessions told the Washington Free Beacon that it would be difficult for the administration to justify greater concessions given the centrality of this issue in the broader debate.

“The Obama administration has gone all-in on the importance of verification,” said the source, who asked for anonymity because the administration has been known to retaliate against critics in the policy community. “But without knowing what the Iranians have it’s impossible for the IAEA to verify that they’ve given it up.”Picture3

A lesser emphasis is also being placed on Iran coming clean about its past efforts to build nuclear weapons. The Islamic Republic continues to stall United Nations efforts to determine the extent of its past weapons work, according to the Wall Street Journal.

By placing disclosure of Iran’s past military efforts on the back burner, the administration could harm the ability of outside inspectors to take full inventory of Iran’s nuclear know-how, according to sources familiar with the situation. It also could jeopardize efforts to keep Iran at least one year away from building a bomb, sources said.more evidence

On the diplomatic front, greater concessions are fueling fears among U.S. allies that Iran will emerge from the negations as a stronger regional power.Picture6

The Life and Death of Baby Walter is Changing The Abortion Debate

Posted by Nancy Flanders, Mar 26, 2015, Washington, DC

(LiveActionNews) — It took a long time for Michayla, age seven, to deal with the loss of her baby its timebrother, Walter. Michayla still proudly speaks of him, telling strangers that she has two sisters here, and a baby brother in heaven. At 19 weeks gestation, Michayla’s mother, Lexi Fretz, miscarried Walter. At the time, Fretz, her husband, Joshua, and their two daughters were hundreds of miles away from home. They had traveled for a wedding where they were both guests, as well as photographers. Then the unthinkable happened – Fretz went into labor.

Baby Walter may have only lived outside the womb for a few moments, but his life has had a lasting impact. He saved others from abortion, and helped pro-abortion individuals see the preborn as human beings deserving of life. But Walter’s family had to move on with their lives without him, starting with the long trip home.20 wk ban

“Having to travel 600 miles home having just given birth, and dealing with traveling kids and postpartum me wasn’t fun,” Fretz said. “And then when I got home, I had lots of support from family and friends, and the community as they found out, too – church and everyone else. We kept on living and trucking along, and doing what we had to do.”

A picture of Walter on Fretz’s Facebook page quickly spread, and she began to pen Walter’s story and the impact of his short life. Today, well over a million people have seen Walter’s photos.

“It still blows my mind,” Fretz said. “I never expected that when I put those pictures up, or the story up – just seeing how God would use our pain. So many women don’t get the answer to why. Everyone wants to know, Why, God? Why did you do this? Now I know why. I have seen Walter’s purpose. That has helped my husband and I, and our healing.”

People around the world continue to tell the Fretz family that they ended up choosing life for their babies because of Walter. One note that stands out to Lexi is from a woman not too far from home.mommy can you feel me

“There was a lady in a town next to ours who was sitting in an abortion clinic with her daughter,” Fretz said. National death rate percentages“She was ready to go through with it. She said the whole time, she was thinking she shouldn’t be doing this. She went online while she was sitting there, and she saw Walter, and she started to cry – and they got up and left.”

While Walter’s photos made their way across the globe, Fretz discovered she was expecting another child.  She was thrilled, but the pregnancy had some frightful moments. Fretz was diagnosed with an incompetent cervix, which can lead to premature labor. She had surgery at 13 weeks gestation to place a permanent band around her cervix, and it was a success.

This fall, the Fretz family welcomed their third daughter into the world. Mia, now nearly seven months old, joins Emma and Michayla.

“They were thrilled to find out about Mia,” Fretz said. “We bought a cake, and my husband had [the baker] write ‘baby’ on the top, and our oldest was just starting to read. It clicked, and her face lit up. They were ecstatic. They would come up, rub my belly and say, ‘Mommy, I hope this baby doesn’t die’.”

The Fretz family’s lives are full of the color pink, plenty of glitter, and princesses – and two little girls who are in love with their baby sister. Both girls endured the loss of their brother through difficulty, especially Michayla. They still discuss Walter, and Michayla tells her parents that she misses him and wishes God did not take him away. The girls and their parents are proud of the difference Walter is making.

“For someone who survived so few minutes outside of me, he’s left such an impact, more than I ever could,” Fretz said. “For someone so tiny, he’s touched so many. I hope he keeps educating the world and the masses as to what the preborn looks like on the inside – that it’s not just a blob – it’s not a clump of cells.”20 wk ban

Obama Accused of Obstructing Battle against Boko Haram to Promote Axelrod’s Nigerian Muslim Client

Exclusive to Accuracy in Media 

When the notorious Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, kidnapped 278 school girls from the town of Chibok in northeastern Nigeria last year, Michelle Obama began a Twitter hashtag campaign, #BringBackOurGirls. But behind the scenes, the Obama administration was undermining Nigeria’s efforts to take the battle to the terrorists. Obama refused to sell Nigeria arms and supplies critical to the fight, and stepped in to block other Western allies from doing so. The administration also denied Nigeria intelligence on Boko Haram from drones operating in the area. While Boko Haram was kidnapping school girls, the U.S. cut petroleum purchases from Nigeria to zero, plunging the nation’s economy into turmoil and raising concerns about its ability to fund its battle against the terrorists. Nigeria responded by cancelling a military training agreement between the two countries.

The Nigerian presidential election is coming up Saturday, March 28, 2015. AKPD, the political consulting group founded by Obama confidante David Axelrod, is assisting Retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, a Muslim presidential candidate from Muslim-dominated northern Nigeria, where Boko Haram was spawned and wields the most influence. Buhari is well-known throughout the country, having led as “Head-of-State” following a military coup in 1983. He was dislodged following another coup in 1985.

Democracy is a recent phenomenon in Nigeria. With the exception of two short periods from its independence in 1960 to 1966, and the second republic from 1979 to 1983, the country was ruled by a string of military dictatorships between 1966 and 1999. Under the All Progressives Congress (APC) banner, Buhari is putting up a stiff challenge to the sitting president, Dr. Ebele Goodluck Jonathan who hails from Nigeria’s Christian south. Buhari was also the North’s presidential candidate in the last election held in 2011.

Axelrod is credited as the force behind President Obama’s election victories in 2008 and 2012. He served as Obama’s Senior Advisor until 2011. A well-placed Nigerian interviewed for this report who asked to remain unidentified says that influential Nigerians within and outside the government believe Obama deliberately undermined the war effort and sabotaged the Nigerian economy to make President Jonathan appear weak and ineffectual, and thus bolster the electoral prospects for AKPD’s client, Buhari.

The prominent daily Nigerian Tribune cites an activist group, Move on Nigeria, complaining that the U.S. is fueling tension in Nigeria and has “continued to publicly magnify every challenge of the Nigerian government.”

An anti-Buhari Nigerian blogger writing in the Western Post went further:

In the last year, Nigeria sought aid from the White House for many initiatives, including the fight against Boko Haram. The Obama administration refused to do anything but play [sic] lip service to Nigeria’s requests. However, it used public and private channels to internationally magnify every failure Nigeria’s government experienced.

In the last year, since the involvement of Axelrod’s firm, relations between the two nations have significantly deteriorated, with the US refusing to sell arms to Nigeria, a significant reduction in the purchase of Nigeria’s oil, and the cancellation of a military training agreement between Nigeria and the USA. In turn, the Buhari-led Nigerian opposition used the U.S. government’s position as validation for their claim that the Nigerian government was a failure.Picture3

Nigerian officials seeking to purchase weapons, especially Cobra attack helicopters, were outraged at Obama’s refusal to allow these transactions. Nigeria’s ambassador to the U.S., Professor Adebowale Adefuye, stated publicly that:

The U.S. government has up till today refused to grant Nigeria’s request to purchase lethal equipment that would have brought down the terrorists within a short time on the basis of the allegations that Nigeria’s defence forces have been violating human rights of Boko Haram suspects when captured or arrested.

We find it difficult to understand how and why, in spite of the U.S. presence in Nigeria, with their sophisticated military technology, Boko Haram should be expanding and becoming more deadly.

Another official quoted in the Nigerian newspaper ThisDay, stated:

The U.S. government has frustrated Nigeria all the way in our war against terrorism despite its public statements in support of Nigeria, as it fights the Boko Haram insurgents in the North-east… They want us to fight Boko Haram with our arms tied to our backs.

They have blocked us from procuring the helicopters and would not provide us with intelligence despite the fact that they have several drones and sophisticated aircraft overflying the North-east of Nigeria from bases in Niger and Chad where the Boko Haram fighters and movements are clearly in their sights.

Retired Col. Abubakar Umar, a former military governor, concluded that the Americans “have decided to turn a blind eye to what is happening in Nigeria.” Former Head-of-State, Retired Gen. Yakubu Gowon publicly stated last November that America is no friend of Nigeria.

After exhausting all avenues, the Nigerian government finally turned to Russia, China and the black market to obtain needed arms, and as a result has gone aggressively on the offensive against Boko Haram, retaking some 40 towns occupied by the group and killing at least 500 terrorists. According to recent accounts, Boko Haram has gone to ground in the northeastern border regions. But whereas the border states of Niger, Chad, Benin and Cameroon formerly took a hands-off approach, they have now joined in the effort to destroy the group, pledging a total of 8,700 troops. Most recently, Boko Haram has been cleared of its northeastern strongholds in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa.

U.S. Excuses

The Obama administration has said it is barred from supplying weapons by the so-called Leahy Amendment which forbids foreign states that have committed “gross human rights violations” from receiving military aid. However this did not stop the U.S. from sending Special Forces to Uganda—another country accused of such violations—to assist in capturing Lord Resistance Army leader Joseph Kony. Nor did it prevent Obama from supporting al Qaeda-linked rebel groups in Libya, who later went on to attack the Benghazi mission, and have now joined ISIS. The Syrian “moderates” the administration claimed to back are also allegedly joining with ISIS. In fact, Obama supported the Islamic radicals who destabilized states throughout the Middle East, including Tunisia, Libya and Egypt, and did little to prevent Iranian-backed Shiites from overthrowing Yemen—a key ally in the War on Terror. And despite claims that the U.S. “does not negotiate with terrorists,” the administration did so in secret with the Taliban for years, most notoriously over the release of Bowe Bergdahl.

The U.S. State Department is currently negotiating a deal that will enable Iran to obtain the bomb, and it just declared that Iran and its Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah, are not terrorists. The administration even claims Iran has been an ally in the War on Terror! Finally, Axelrod’s client, Buhari, has been accused of human rights abuses during his time as chief-of-state.

To top it off, Secretary of State John Kerry made a mockery of the administration’s pretext by hinting in January meetings with both Jonathan and Buhari that the Obama administration might allow weapon sales after the election. If the U.S. was so concerned about human rights violations, how could a mere election change that? Given the perception that Buhari has Obama’s implicit support, this sends an unmistakable message.Picture4

The administration also rationalized its decision to cut purchases of Nigerian oil by claiming that output from domestic oil fracking has reduced America’s dependence on foreign oil. But that begs the question: why have U.S. oil imports from other nations increased at the same time? Nigeria was formerly among America’s top five oil supplying countries, and America its largest customer. Nigeria relies on oil revenues for 70 percent of its budget. America’s decision to look elsewhere has been catastrophic for Nigeria’s economy.

A Deutsche Bank analyst noted that the decline in Nigeria’s oil sales to America “proceeded much faster than for the U.S.’ other major suppliers,” and concluded that singling Nigeria out this way had to be driven by politics.

Nigeria is not the only country where Obama is using oil as a foreign policy weapon. The U.S. has not renewed its 35-year-old agreement with Israel to provide emergency supplies of oil, despite booming U.S. oil production. The agreement expired in November 2014. At the time, the State Department claimed to be working on renewing the agreement, but has yet to do so.

U.S. Media AWOL

There is not a single article mentioning Axelrod’s assistance to Buhari in any U.S. “mainstream” media outlet. Only the Washington Free Beacon ran a story. A Google search of “New York Times, Nigeria, Axelrod,” found only one Times article titled Nigerian Soldiers Noticeably Absent in Town Taken from Boko Haram. There was no mention of Axelrod or his relationship to Nigeria’s Muslim candidate, Buhari. Rather, it criticized Nigeria’s participation in the recent multi-country effort to remove Boko Haram from its northeastern Nigerian holdouts, quoting Chadian foreign minister, Moussa Faki Mahamat, who said, “The Nigerian Army has not succeeded in facing up to Boko Haram.”

There are however, many flattering articles about Axelrod, like the Times review of his book, Believer.

NBC News reported on the oil issue, quoting Peter Pham, the Atlantic Council’s director of its Africa Program, who characterized it as “a sea change in [Nigeria’s] relations with the United States, a sea change in its geopolitical position in the world.”

NBC also noted Nigerian ambassador Adefuye’s complaint about U.S. refusal to provide weapons to Nigeria, and how both issues impacted Nigeria’s ability to fight Boko Haram—but there was no mention of Axelrod’s assistance to Buhari.

Buhari Connected to Boko Haram?

Boko Haram is a virulently anti-Western Islamist movement. Its name, roughly translated, means “fake education is forbidden,” but in practice the term “fake” refers to Western education. It was founded in 2002 by Mohammed Yusuf, a Salafist preacher who created a school to provide an Islamic alternative to Westernized schools. Over time it became a recruiting tool for Boko Haram fighters. The group envisions creating an Islamic caliphate throughout Africa. Yusuf was killed by police in a 2009 uprising, and was replaced by Abubakar Shekau, who recently pledged the group’s alliance with ISIS. Let’s review just what kind of monsters these Boko Haram terrorists are:

Certain Buhari supporters such as Ango Abdullahi of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), have been accused of tacitly supporting Boko Haram, and Jonathan’s Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has linked Buhari himself with the terrorists. The alleged connection however, is an open question. In 2013, Buhari protested a government crackdown on the group. In 2012, Boko Haram nominated Buhari as one of six mediators in negotiations with the government over a proposed ceasefire. In 2001, Buhari expressed his desire to see Nigeria ruled by Sharia law, saying:

I will continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria… God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of the Sharia in the country.

However, Boko Haram attempted to assassinate Buhari last year in a suicide bomb attack that killed 82. More recently, the group called both him and Jonathan “Infidels.” For his part, Buhari called the group “bigots masquerading as Muslims.” Buhari also ruthlessly suppressed a similar group, the Maitatsine, during his time as military head-of-state. Buhari’s vice-presidential running mate is a Pentecostal pastor from the south. Similarly, Jonathan picked a Muslim from the north as his number two.

But much violence has surrounded Buhari’s past efforts. Nigeria has a practice of alternating northern and southern rule called zoning. In the 2011 election, Jonathan was president, having ascended from the vice presidency in 2010 following the death of President Umaru Yar’Adau, a northerner. Some Northern politicians believed that Buhari should have assumed the presidency in 2011.

Abdullahi and others, at that time, threatened violence if Buhari wasn’t elected. Buhari himself refused to condemn violence. This was universally interpreted as encouragement from Buhari. Within hours of Jonathan’s election—what was believed to be one of Nigeria’s historically fairest—Buhari’s Muslim supporters took to the streets, attacking Jonathan supporters with machetes and knives. Following Jonathan’s inauguration, Boko Haram launched a wave of bombings, killing and wounding dozens. An estimated 800 people died in the post-election violence in the Muslim north.

A prominent Nigerian deputy governor, Tele Ikuru, who recently abandoned the APC to join Jonathan’s PDP, called the APC “a party of rebels, insurgents and anarchists, clothed in the robes of pretence and deceit.”

Embarrassed by the kidnapping and the perceived association between Buhari’s supporters and Boko Haram, AKPD claimed that they discontinued work for Buhari in early 2014. However, The Washington Free Beacon has unearthed emails showing that they continued to quietly aid APC into at least January of this year.

Their campaign appears to have been successful. While Nigerian election polls are conflicting, the most recent one projects Buhari the winner by a wide margin. Not surprisingly, the reasons cited for Jonathan’s unpopularity include the perception that he is weak and ineffectual against Boko Haram, and that the economy is in a sorry state. Nigerians have taken to calling the president “Bad Luck” Jonathan.

Nigeria’s Critical Role and U.S. Policy Failures

Most Americans are unaware of the critical role Nigeria plays in African politics. In addition to being Africa’s largest oil producer, Nigeria is also the continent’s most populous nation, with an estimated 162 million people, and is home to approximately 12.5 percent of the world’s total black population. Additionally, Nigerian Americans are very productive and well represented in the fields of medicine, sports, engineering, and academics. Annual remittances are $21 billion, with America providing the largest proportion. It is ironic at best that America’s so-called “first black president” is alienating such a nation, especially given its powerful influence throughout Africa.

Because of Obama, America is losing allies the world over. Despite his so-called outreach to “the Muslim world,” the few Muslim allies America has are calling him out. For example, observe the unprecedented spectacle of Arabs cheering Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech before the U.S. Congress. Columnist Dr. Ahmad Al-Faraj of the Saudi daily newspaper Al-Jazirah, called Obama “the worst president in American history.” The only Muslims Obama seems to like are those who hate America, and he is going out of his way to court them, come what mayAmerica are you paying attention Picture6

Selfless vet returns to Iraq to fight ISIS: ‘I’m not serving my country — I’m serving Christians’


 

March 23, 2015 by

Much like the original Crusades were a response to Muslim aggression, today brave Christian warriors have gone to the Middle East to battle the Islamic State. Weeks ago, a team from CBS’ “60 Minutes” came across Brett Felton, 28, of Troy, Mich., who slipped into Iraq to help the people of the mostly abandoned Christian town of Bakufa.

Brett Felton Facebook

He is not only there to fight, but to train the Christians who stayed behind to defend the town.

Jeff Newton, a “60 Minutes producer” sat down with him for an interview and was clearly impressed.

“If you look at him, he’s literally all tattooed out like a biker,” he said on “60 Minutes Overtime” Sunday. ”But if you look really closely at his tattoos, they’re like Jesus Christ crying blood tears out of his eyes and stuff like that — so he’s kind of a hardcore Christian.”

Brett Felton Facebook

Felton is no stranger to Iraq. In 2006 he was deployed there with the 10th Mountain Division, 2nd Battalion, 14th Infantry Regiment.

Brett Felton Facebook

Months ago when he was studying abroad in Lebanon, he slipped back into Iraq to take the fight to ISIS.

Brett Felton Facebook

Other Christians from abroad have started to trickle in to help the effort, but CBS’ Lara Logan doesn’t like their chances. “They’re under-funded. They don’t have good weapons. They’re completely outgunned by the Islamic State,” she said. “When you’re with them, you have this terrible feeling that many of them would be massacred if the Islamic State really turned its attention to taking back those villages.”

But Felton is undeterred.

“People say, ‘You’re crazy for doin’ this,’” he said. “I think people are crazy for not doing their part, to be honest with you. To me, for the Christians here,” he added. “It would be an honor to give my life helping these people.”

Hopefully, he won’t have to.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest faced some pushback on Wednesday after he claimed that the Obama administration still believes Yemen can serve as a successful model for “counterterrorism.”more evidence

ABC reporter Jonathan Karl noted that “complete chaos” has gripped Yemen as the country faces a bloody struggle against radical rebel forces and asked if the White House still views Yemen as a counterterrorism “model.” The reporter seemed surprised when Earnest said the White House is maintaining its position.

Earnest told reporters on Wednesday that a “successful counterterrorism strategy is one that will build up the capacity of the central government to have local fighters on the ground to have local fighters take the fight to extremists in their own country.” He added that the counterterrorism strategy is a “template that has succeeded in mitigating the threat in Yemen and Somalia.”more evidence

“That’s astounding,” Karl responded. “You’re saying you still see Yemen as a model? Building up a central government, which has now collapsed? A president who has apparently fled the country? You know, Saudi troops massing on one border, the Iranians supporting the rebels? You consider this a model for counterterrorism?”

“We were betrayed, gave them 2 extra months. Get a vote together,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue in a tweet posted by Jill Stanek.mommy can you feel me Newman continued, “Though we may lose our freedom temporarily it’s nothing compared to what happens to the babies.”

The event was meant to draw public attention to the late-term abortion ban and the fact that it is being needlessly delayed.

Gun Store Owner Illegally Targeted by Federal Government Gets Sweet Revenge

In the Age of Obama, following the law can be a liability. It’s not just because the content of that law changes everyday thanks to burdensome bureaucratic regulations and illegal executive orders. It’s also because the Obama Administration continues to insist on targeting normal, law-abiding individuals for their political beliefs, ideologies, and even occupations. Just ask gun store owner Mike Schuetz, one of the victims of Operation Choke Point.

From Fox News:

Operation Choke Point is a secretive Obama administration program that was originally intended to help prevent fraud by eliminating access to banks for certain businesses. But now it appears that the program – overseen by the Justice Department, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and other agencies – has been expanded and is being used to target legal businesses that Obama administration officials are opposed to.squeeze into mold

obama- Marxist tyrant

Gun store owner Mike Schuetz says the federal government forced his bank to close his recently opened account, all because he’s a legal gun dealer.

Luckily, Schuetz operates a private investigation company and he was able to put his investigatory skills to use and capture chilling audio that reveals why his business was targeted.

Schuetz, who opened Hawkins Guns LLC in Hawkins, Wisconsin, in November 2014, explained to Kimberly Guilfoyle on “Fox and Friends” that he recorded a conversation with Heritage Credit Union, in which the branch manager says that they closed his account because they do not service businesses that deal in guns and ammunition.

“It’s a sad day in America when this can happen to you,” Schuetz told Guilfoyle. “I didn’t realize how big of an issue it was until I started investigating what had happened to me.”

gun store

Schuetz posted the following message on his Facebook page when he learned that his account had been closed because he was a gun dealer:

Sorry I had to close this afternoon shortly. You will never guess why? I received a call from Heritage Credit Union in Hawkins, where I set up my business account for Hawkins Guns. They told me I had to close the account because they do not service companies that deal in guns. This is just a back door way for those wanting to infringe upon your rights to keep and bear arms and is nothing more than discrimination to gun owners.

I have closed the account and am going to a more freedom loving bank to give my business. This will delay my ability to accept credit cards, but in time all will be straightened out. I would highly suggest questioning who you are allowing to house your hard earned money. If you choose to close an account there let them know why!

But Schuetz did more than just advertise on social media. He fought back against the illegal targeting of his business with some old-fashioned investigative reporting. The evidence he gathered is simply staggering.

You can check it all out here.

The inventory includes several audio-recorded conversations, including ones where bank representatives reveal that they were simply responding to federal demands to close his account. More than a dozen bank examiners forced the bank to comply and close Schuetz’s account for his perfectly legal gun business.Welcome to the Obama

You can see more here, here, and here.

Finally, recall Publius’ words from Federalist 62:

The internal effects of a mutable policy are still more calamitous. It poisons the blessing of liberty itself. It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?

What do you think of this blatant attack on the Second Amendment by the Obama Administration? And what does it mean for the future of the rule of law in America?Picture6

Move over, chess club, French club, and all your other useless western organizations. Make room for a club that pays homage to the great work being done by … Islamofacists?

As hard as it is to believe, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released an undercover video of a dean at an Ivy League school detailing the steps needed to start a pro-Islamic State/pro-Hamas club on campus with an eye toward raising funds and sending care packages to the terrorist groups.

In O’Keefe’s latest video, Assistant Dean of Students Joseph Scaffido of Cornell University is captured on hidden camera advising reporter posing as a student on how to proceed. In addition, Scaffido provides information on how to bring a member of the IS to Cornell to run a “training camp,” explaining, “It’s just like bringing in a coach, to do a training on a sports team or something.”more evidence

When the Project Veritas journalist suggested that the club would support Hamas as well as ISIS, Scaffido stated:

“the University [Cornell] is not going to look at different groups and say you are not allowed to support that group. Because we don’t believe in them or something like that. I think it’s just the opposite. I think the University wants the entire community to understand what’s going on in all parts of the world.”

This new Project Veritas video shockingly and frighteningly exposes that Cornell, an esteemed and storied Ivy League University, is truly detached from reality. This is particularly egregious due to the fact that Cornell has received over $300 million in federal contracts and grants since 2000 and more than $190 million from New York state taxpayers since 2012.

“I was chilled and saddened by Dean Scaffido’s reaction and his position on the pro-ISIS club,” stated James O’Keefe, President of Project Veritas. “At the very best Scaffido’s attitude towards the proposed club is complacent and irresponsible, at the very worst he genuinely and willingly supports those sympathetic to ISIS freedom fighters, or more aptly stated: terrorists. In either case, Scaffido’s comments have placed Cornell in the hot seat. I think it is fair to say that at the very least Cornell owes the American people an explanation, if not an apology.”

The video stunner below is a must watch.

“Two guys break into an atheist’s home,” Robertson began. “He has a little atheist wife and two little atheist daughters. Two guys break into his home and tie him up in a chair and gag him. And then they take his two daughters in front of him and rape both of them and then shoot ’em and they take his wife and then decapitate her head off in front of him. And they can look at him and say, ‘Isn’t it great that I don’t have to worry about being judged? Isn’t it great that there’s nothing wrong with this? There’s no right or wrong, now is it dude?’

“Then you take a sharp knife and take his manhood and hold it in front of him and say, ‘Wouldn’t it be something if this was something wrong with this? But you’re the one who says there is no God, there’s no right, there’s no wrong, so we’re just having fun. We’re sick in the head, have a nice day.’

“If it happened to them, they probably would say, ‘Something about this just ain’t right.'”AMEN

Many took to Twitter to voice their disapproval once recordings of Robertson’s speech made their way onto the Internet.

Meanwhile, some “Duck” fans stood up for Robertson, who is no stranger to scandal.

Representatives for Phil Robertson and “Duck Dynasty” did not immediately return FOX411’s requests for comment. 

The patriarch of A&E’s reality TV family has been slammed in the past for his rants. Most memorably, Robertson criticized homosexually, using graphic terms, in an interview with GQ. The backlash following the interview got the Robertson father suspended from “Duck Dynasty,” but A&E reinstated him a short while later.  

“Duck Dynasty” recently aired its seventh season on A&E, which wrapped in February.

Abortion Activist Throws Firebomb at Pro-Lifers Praying at Texas Abortion Clinic

Melanie Toney has been arrested for the alleged assault

“Yesterday evening toward the end of the daily prayer vigil, a passerby threw a flaming object at the prayer volunteers.  Fortunately no one was injured and the flames were put out quickly,” the group said. “This is not the first time people have thrown objects at pro-lifers but clearly this instance was a more direct threat, and we always want to exercise caution.”

“The prayer volunteers handled the situation very well – one took a photo of the license plate of the vehicle, another called the police and her Day Captain to report the incident.  The police soon caught and arrested the female driver.  Eventually KXAN News came out and interviewed one of our brave volunteers, Ruth,” the group added.

UPDATE: Local news sources indicate a Melanie Toney has been arrested for the alleged assault.

A woman who police say threw a Molotov cocktail at a group of women praying in front of a Planned Let GodParenthood clinic on Monday evening is charged with aggravated assault. Austin police and members of the bomb squad responded the location on E. Ben White Boulevard received the call shortly after 6 p.m.

According to the executive director of Central Texas Coalition for Life, the group was able to record the suspect’s license plate number before she drove away, which led police to 52-year-old Melanie Toney. Toney was pulled over less than three miles away from the clinic.

When officers interviewed Toney, she initially denied everything but later admitted to throwing the bottle and that it “might” have been smoldering when she threw it out of her window, according to an affidavit.

The local news station has more on what happened and the arrest of the perpetrator:

Police arrested a driver Monday night who they say threw a flaming object from a car near the Planned Parenthood clinic on East Ben White Boulevard near South Congress. Austin police received the call shortly after 6 p.m., and members of the bomb squad responded. No one was injured and nothing was damaged, police said.

KXAN spoke to Ruth Allwein, a member of pro-life campaign 40 Days For Life, Monday evening. Allwein said she was praying outside the clinic when a driver threw the object at her.

“I realized she was throwing something out the window and it was on fire,” Allwein said. “So I backed away and turned around to see if I could tell what the car looked like, but I couldn’t.”

Police could only provide initial information Monday night and were unable to confirm all of the details provided by Allwein.Picture14

The pro-life organization continued: “The safety of our volunteers is of utmost importance which is why it is necessary to have at least 2 people praying at all times.  Our approach has always been that we have a peaceful prayerful attitude and be aware of our surroundings, which is what these volunteers exemplified.   Let us pray for all involved.  Thank you to everyone who boldly takes a stand for life!”

Obama Chooses Six Cities to Test Federal Police Scheme


Written by  Alex Newman Monday, 23 March 2015

Welcome to the Obama

Under the guise of “restoring trust” between communities and police departments that have been militarized by the federal government, the Obama administration’s Justice Department announced this month that it had selected six U.S. cities to serve as pilot sites, to develop and deploy federal guidance for local police to create better procedures, reduce racial bias, and regain citizens’ trust. The plan, which is controversial because it is line with Obama administration goals to further nationalize and federalize local law enforcement, has been officially dubbed the “National Initiative for Building Community Trust and Justice.” It will use U.S. taxpayer dollars to deploy “experts” and “researchers” charged with training officers to act in a manner that the DOJ deems just — in essence doing the bidding of the Obama administration. Officially, the Justice Department will be helping local officials “fight crime” under the scheme, according to news reports.Tyrant ObamaFreedom is not dictator friendly

Initially, the program, which will cost American taxpayers almost $5 million, will aim to “assess” the relationship between local police and the communities they serve. Then, the DOJ squads will work to develop plans supposedly aimed at enhancing “procedural justice,” reducing bias, and supporting “reconciliation in communities where trust has been eroded,” the Justice Department said in a statement announcing the plan.

The first six cities to be targeted as pilot sites will be;

  1. Birmingham, Alabama;

  2. Fort Worth, Texas;

  3. Gary, Indiana;

  4. Minneapolis, Minnesota;

  5. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and

  6. Stockton, California.

Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price described the program as “a tool to strengthen our partnership with the justice system.” However, other police departments are also in the cross hairs. According to the official announcement, an unspecified number of “police departments and communities that are not pilot sites” will also be targeted for more DOJ “training” and “technical assistance.”

Sceptics’ have pointed to past precedent and deemed the plan dangerous. Among other deeply troubling elements, in the past the Justice Department’s “training” schemes for state and local police have included, as The New American reported in 2012, teaching officers to associate mainstream political activism, such as conservative bumper-sticker displays on cars, with “terrorism” and “extremism.”Picture1

Ironically, the next year, the DOJ itself was exposed working with an anti-Christian extremist group, the Southern Poverty Law Center, that had inspired a confessed terrorist to attempt a mass-murder attack on a pro-family group. The year after that, the Justice Department came under major fire for funding a New York “community group” that was involved in a rap video promoting the murder of police officers. Indeed, since Obama took office, the administration has been pumping out a non-stop barrage of propaganda demonizing tens of millions or even hundreds of millions of Americans as “extremists” and potential “terrorists,” owing to their mainstream political views. The administration has also consistently vilified police who were accused of abusing their power, even before investigations were concluded.Comming Soon 02

Indeed, there’s little reason to believe that this latest effort by Obama’s DOJ has as its actual goal the increased professionalism of police.

Attorney General Holder has been repeatedly lambasted for his own anti-police extremism, including publicly making accusatory comments about police officers before investigations into the facts of controversial behavior have taken place. He was also held in criminal contempt of Congress — the first sitting DOJ boss in history to face such a serious measure — after trying to unlawfully cover up the administration’s “Fast and Furious” gun-running program for Mexican cartels. Guns from that scheme, which official documents show was aimed at pushing more assaults on gun rights, resulted in the deaths of multiple U.S. law-enforcement officers. Holder has successfully avoided prosecution so far, but the contempt citation remains in effect and carries a potential jail sentence. Numerous other mega-scandals have plagued Holder’s tenure as well.    Propaganda Alert

Now, the DOJ boss wants even more control over your local police department. “By helping to develop programs that serve their own diverse experiences and environments, these selected cities will serve on the leading edge of our effort to confront pressing issues in communities around the country,” Holder said.

It was not immediately clear why or under what authority Holder thinks the Obama administration should control local police, rather than allowing them to be overseen by local voters and officials, as has traditionally been the case in the United States and other free nations. Other DOJ officials, though, offered the official rationale for the ongoing takeover and erosion of self-government. “Restoring trust where it has eroded is one of the defining public safety challenges of our day,” argued Assistant Attorney General Karol Mason of the Office of Justice Programs, apparently without a trace of irony (more than two-thirds of Americans say the federal government is “out of control” and a threat to liberty — hardly an indicator of public trust). “Trust-building is the responsibility of the police and the community, and the National Initiative’s goal is to build the bridge that will define a new era in public safety.”more evidence

MArxist indocrinationThe latest announcements surrounding the controversial Obama-police scheme occurred, supposedly by coincidence, just 13 hours after two police officers were shot in Ferguson amid ongoing tensions there — tensions inflamed by DOJ claims of police racism and injustice in Ferguson. “Incidents like the one we have witnessed throw into sharp relief why conversations like the one we convened today, to build trust between law enforcement and community members, are so important,” claimed Holder. Outlines of the DOJ’s plan were first presented in September of last year after a Ferguson police officer, who has since been cleared of criminal wrongdoing in multiple investigations, shot and killed Michael Brown.

In its official announcement, the Justice Department offered few details about the real scope of their planned activities, but it is clearly wide-ranging. “The three-year grant has been awarded to a consortium of national law enforcement experts from John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Yale Law School, the Center for Policing Equity at UCLA and the Urban Institute,” the March 12 press release stated. The “Urban Institute” is a far-left federally funded “think tank” that also receives funding from the Rockefeller Foundation and other establishment sources.Picture1

Meanwhile, the announcement tried to undermine skeptics’ worries about new anti-conservative dogma by the government: “The initiative is guided by a board of advisors which includes national leaders from law enforcement, academia and faith-based groups, as well as community stakeholders and civil rights advocates.” Which “civil rights advocates” were involved was not made clear, though race-profiteers and incendiary extremists such as Al Sharpton have strong links to the administration and its efforts to federalize law enforcement.   Pro Race Baiters

Emperor Obama“In a holistic approach, the initiative simultaneously addresses the tenets of procedural justice, reducing implicit bias and facilitating racial reconciliation,” the release continued, again without any suggestion of irony even as the administration comes under increasing fire for fomenting and exploiting the racial unrest in need of reconciliation. “The initiative complements and is advised by other Justice Department components such as the Office of Justice Programs, the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services [COPS], the Office on Violence Against Women, the Civil Rights Division and the Community Relations Service.” Many of those DOJ units, of course, have come under heavy criticism as even former Justice Department officials lambaste Holder for packing them with politicized radicals.Welcome to the Obama

tyrantsEfforts to calm a worried public will likely go to no avail because the recent selection of six pilot cities for the controversial policing schemes came less than a week after Obama’s “Task Force on 21st Century Policing,” created by unconstitutional executive decree, announced its plans to impose “national standards” on state and local law enforcement across the nation. Essentially, in exchange for unconstitutional federal bribes, the Obama administration plans to in effect further nationalize and federalize local and state police departments — a process remarkably similar to the unconstitutional schemes used to foist the Common Core nationalization of K-12 education on over 40 states.

More than a few critics of Obama’s efforts to further nationalize and federalize law enforcement — a state and local responsibility under America’s constitutional system — noted that the scheming was in line with his campaign rhetoric about building what he called a “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, Obama tearing up the constitutionjust as strong, just as well-funded” as the U.S. military. Separately, opponents of the plan noted that Congress revealed in an official 1961 report that communist operatives in the West and particularly in the United States were working hard to nationalize American police forces. Of course, national police forces — from the KGB to the Gestapo — have always been a hallmark of tyranny.

The controversial Obama administration demands for national standards for police, meanwhile, came just a few months after United Nations boss Ban Ki Moon, exploiting the chaos in Ferguson, called for American police to obey “international standards.” Like Ban, the Obama administration seized on the unrest in Missouri — much of it bankrolled by billionaire statist George Soros, it later emerged — to push burkehis radical agenda to strip communities of control over their own police departments. Of course, the Obama administration, and previous presidents, have also been showering local law enforcement with military weaponry — ironically one of the purported justifications for the further federalization of policing.

The constitutionalist organization that publishes this magazine, The John Birch Society, has for decades been running a nationwide campaign to “Support Your Local Police and Keep Them Independent.” From lobbying Congress to cut off the funds and educating the public about the Constitution, to working with state and local officials to stop the federal bribes with “strings” attached, there are many ways to fight back against the establishment’s efforts to impose a national police force accountable to Washington, D.C. politicians and bureaucrats rather than local communities. As Obama and Holder work to usurp all control over law enforcement from local citizens, Americans who hope to remain free under the U.S. Constitution must ensure that the administration’s plot is defeated. Not only is it unconstitutional, history shows it is extraordinarily dangerous.

U.S. ‘ignoring intel’ on ISIS chemical attacks


Posted By Aaron Klein On 03/23/2015

THE FLAG OF ISLAMIC STATE (ISIS)

muslim-obamaTEL AVIV – Egypt provided the United States with information that ISIS is attempting to purchase chemical materials such as chlorine gas that can be utilized in terrorist attacks, an Egyptian intelligence official told WND. Yet the official claimed the U.S. has been “ignoring” the intelligence as well as information ISIS has already utilized chlorine gas in attacks against Kurdish forces in recent weeks, including in battles in Tikrit, Iraq.

The developments came after a British chemical weapons expert who advised security forces in Baghdad issued a warning that returning ISIS fighters could purchase chemical materials and carry out attacks against civilian targets in the U.S. or U.K.against America

Last weekend, the Kurdistan Regional Security Council in Iraq claimed ISIS deployed weaponized chlorine gas in recent surges. The substance is banned on the battlefield by the international Chemical Weapons Convention. “The analysis, which was carried out at an EU-certified laboratory, found the samples contained levels of chlorine that suggested the substance was used in weaponized form,” Kurdish officials wrote in a statement released to the news media. The Kurdish claim was not independently verified.

The Kurdish group further claimed Peshmerga forces discovered “20 gas canisters” in the back of a truck used in an ISIS suicide bomb attack in Iraq on Jan. 23. Kurdish forces released video and photos purporting to show an exploding truck storming down a road leaving a trail of orange smoke, a sign of chlorine gas. One Kurdish official told reports that “dozens” of Peshmerga fighters were treated for “dizziness, nausea, vomiting and general weakness” after the attack.

Last week, a chemical weapons expert warned ISIS militants returning from fighting overseas could carry out chemical attacks inside the U.S. or U.K., perhaps on transportation infrastructure or at a sports stadium. Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, a former commanding officer at the Joint Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear Regiment, warned, “It is very evident that ISIS are putting much time and effort into training its jihadis in the use of chlorine as a terror weapon and in particular in IEDs (improvised explosive devices).”

Writing at 2paragraphs.com, Bretton-Gordon continued, “Virtually every foreign jihadi who returns to the U.S. or U.K. will have been exposed to training of this sort and will have a reasonable idea on how to use chlorine and other toxic chemicals as a terror weapon.”

Bretton-Gordon pointed out that in the U.K. at least, up to 90 tons of chlorine can be purchased without a license.

When he returned earlier this month from advising security forces in Baghdad, Bretton-Gordon told the London Daily Mirror newspaper that a chlorine gas attack within the U.K. was “highly likely.” .. “This could happen on a train or tube or even at a big football match (soccer).”Picture6

Did Anthony Kennedy Just Show His Hand On The Obamacare Subsidies Case?


Posted by Sarah Hurtubise, Reporter, March 23, 2015

Complete Message

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s comments in a run-of-the-mill budget meeting Monday may have signaled how he intends to vote in this year’s biggest Obamacare lawsuit over the legality of federal premium subsidies.

In a Monday budget request before the House Appropriations Committee, Justice Anthony Kennedy, typically the swing vote on the Court, made comments that could suggest he’s leaning in favor of the plaintiffs in King v. Burwell. The question in the pivotal case is whether the text of Obamacare restricts the law’s popular premium subsidies to state-run exchanges, of which there are only 14, and bans them from the vast majority of states that use the federally-run exchange, HealthCare.gov.

The battle over the lawsuit about Obamacare subsidies currently before the Supreme Court has focused on whether anyone’s got a solution if the Court’s decision ends up skyrocketing HealthCare.gov premiums.

  • The administration is arguing that the language in the bill doesn’t exclude federal marketplace customers from the subsidies and seems to be trying to convince the Court that ruling otherwise would be catastrophic for the health-care law, and therefore for the Court’s image. Department of Health and Human Services secretary Sylvia Burwell has repeatedly sworn that the administration will not even have a back-up plan prepared in case they lose the case — although anonymous officials have said elsewhere that there is a contingency plan in place.

  • Congressional Republicans, who typically support the plaintiffs’ interpretation that subsidies are for state exchanges only, have countered that tactic by releasing their own plans in the case of a decision eliminating the federal exchange subsidies.

But it may turn out that the Court may choose to not consider the likelihood of Congress restoring the subsidies at all. While he wasn’t overtly discussing King v. Burwell, Kennedy’s comments on Monday certainly suggested that it isn’t the Court’s role to predict what a certain Congress would do in response to their cases.

“We routinely decide cases involving federal statutes and we say, ‘Well, if this is wrong, the Congress will fix it.’ But then we hear that Congress can’t pass a bill one way or the other. That there is gridlock. Some people say that should affect the way we interpret the statutes,” Kennedy said Monday. ”That seems to me a wrong proposition. We have to assume that we have three fully functioning branches of the government, government that are committed to proceed in good faith and with good will toward one another to resolve the problems of this republic.”

Court experts immediately grabbed onto the comments, which were in response to a question from Florida GOP Rep. Ander Crenshaw about “politically-charged issues” before the Court, as a likely reference to the furor over King v. Burwell.

Josh Blackman, an assistant professor of law at the South Texas College of Law who specializes in the Supreme Court, points out that strategy to put pressure on the Court due to Congress’s reaction even made its way into the courtroom — much to the chagrin of at least one justice. During oral arguments in the case earlier this month, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli suggested to Justice Antonin Scalia that the current Republican-controlled Congress wouldn’t come up with a fix.

JUSTICE SCALIA: Congress adjusts, enacts a statute that — that takes care of the problem.  It happens all the time. Why is that not going to happen here?

GENERAL VERRILLI:  Well, this Congress, Your Honor, I –­­ I –­­ (Laughter.)

GENERAL VERRILLI:  You know, I mean, of course, theoretically — of course, theoretically they could.

JUSTICE SCALIA:  I ­­– I don’t care what Congress you’re talking about.  If the consequences are as disastrous as you say, so many million people without — without insurance and whatnot, yes, I think this Congress would act.

“It was said in a very snarky or sarcastic way,” Blackman told TheDC about Verrilli’s comments. “I was sitting in the Court and I thought that was inappropriate. I think that’s what Kennedy was referring to here.”

Kennedy made no reference to the case, and Blackman stressed that it’s impossible to know exactly what the justice was thinking. But “he seemed very much directed with how he wanted to handle that question,” Blackman said. “The fact that he said this makes me think this issue is on his mind.”

The Supreme Court’s decision in the case is expected in June.

LEXINGTON, Mass. (WHDH) – A debate over a themed dance is sparking controversy at Lexington High School. Students said the administration canceled an “American Pride” dance because it excluded other nationalities, despite the theme getting the most votes from the dance committee.

School officials defended their decision and added they are willing to tweak the theme in order for everyone to be included. “Given the diverse demography of our community it was suggested by the advisers that the students come maybe national pride theme so they could represent their individual nationalities,” Assistant Superintendent Carol Pilarski said.more evidence

“People consider America to be a melting pot, so the fact that it was even considered offensive is what people are a little surprised about,” said student Sneha Rao.

The “National Pride” dance was rescheduled for late April and students can wear red, white and blue if they choose to.

Anti-Marxist Counter-Revolution in Brazil


Posted by Cliff Kincaid, on 21 March, 2015

timthumb.php

With the Middle East in turmoil and Russia’s Vladimir Putin threatening nuclear war, most of our media have missed a big story south of the border. President Barack Obama’s fellow Marxist, Dilma Rousseff, is coming under tremendous pressure to resign her presidency in Brazil. As many as three million Brazilians took to the streets on Sunday to demand the impeachment of Rousseff, a former Marxist terrorist, and the end of the rule of the Brazilian Workers’ Party. Such a development would be a major blow to the anti-American left in Latin America, which has been operating since 1990 under the rubric of the São Paulo Forum, a pro-communist movement started by Rousseff’s predecessor, Luiz Inácio Lula de Silva, and Fidel Castro.

In a growing scandal, the treasurer of the ruling Workers’ Party has been charged with corruption and money laundering linked to the state-run oil company, Petrobras, a firm which has benefitted from U.S. taxpayer loans provided through the Export-Import Bank under Obama.cropped-freedom-is-not-dictator-friendly.png

While Obama has attempted to stifle oil development and production in the United States, his administration officially launched an “ energy partnership” with Brazil in August of 2011. “We want to work with you. We want to help with technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely, and when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers,” Obama told a group of Brazilian business leaders.obama- Marxist tyrant

Some stories appearing in the Western press did note that as many as one million Brazilians turned out on Sunday to protest massive corruption linked to the Rousseff administration. One photo from the march showed a Brazilian waving a sign that said, “We won’t be another Venezuela,” a reference to another Marxist basket case of economic failure and corruption.

But sources contacted by Accuracy in Media say the turnout was far larger, with as many as three million Brazilians in the streets.

Alessandro Cota, a Brazilian who is currently a philosophy and political science researcher at the Inter-American Institute for Philosophy, Government, and Social Thought, told AIM, “This March 15 is certainly a new beginning for Brazil and probably the end of the dreams of all those who wanted to turn the largest country of Latin America into a socialist republic. After 12 years under the rule of the Brazilian Workers’ Party—8 years under President Lula (2003-2011), and 4 years under President Rousseff (who was re-elected last October for another four-year turn)—the Brazilian people, tired of waiting for opposition politicians to take action against the government, took the lead and decided to make history by themselves.”

Brazilian philosopher Olavo de Carvalho, President of the Inter-American Institute for Philosophy, Government, and Social Thought, said, “Never and nowhere has a government been so completely rejected by its own population. But it is more than that. It is not only the rejection of a government, or a President. It is the rejection of the whole system of power that has been created by the Workers’ Party, which includes intellectuals and opinion-makers in the big media. People are no longer afraid of going against the Workers’ Party. Brazilians realized that all the power that President Lula, President Rousseff, and their minions had was based on a bluff, and now they are calling it.”

In Brazil, Cota said, the actual turnout was three million people who made it clear that “they want President Rousseff and the Workers’ Party out.” The figure of one million people who took to the streets was from the city of Sao Paulo alone. He added, “It was the largest nationwide anti-government demonstration in the history of Brazil, and it happened just two days after the Workers Party’s allies organized their own ‘popular’ demonstration in support of President Rousseff.” He said the March 15 wave of protests was genuinely popular, a massive embodiment of the seven percent approval rating that Rousseff received only a few days ago. He said the March 15 demonstrations took place in 26 of the 27 Brazilian states and at least 160 cities, not to mention the anti-government protests that happened abroad.

By contrast, Cota said a pro-government demonstration was attended by a mix of card-carrying union members and people who got paid the equivalent of $10.

It appears that the Brazilian mainstream media have decided to deliberately play down the anti-regime sentiment. Cota said, “According to Datafolha, a local polling company linked to the leftist newspaper Folha de São Paulo, there were only 210 thousand people gathered on Avenida Paulista, the main thoroughfare of the city of São Paulo, a number that not only contradicted the official estimate of the State Police of São Paulo, but also the eyes of those who use them to see.”

The protests in Brazil are giving hope to those who see an opportunity to defeat Marxism in the Western hemisphere.

The pro-communist association called the São Paulo Forum was created in 1990, after the collapse of the Soviet Union led many to believe communism itself was on the wane. However, that was when Fidel Castro reached out to Luiz Inácio Lula de Silva of the Workers’ Party of Brazil, who would later become President of Brazil. An event was hosted in São Paulo, Brazil, bringing together what came to be known as the São Paulo Forum. The international movement included many different leftist groups, such as the communist narco-terrorists known as the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), and communist and leftist parties in the region.

Incredibly, a report appeared which seemed to demonstrate a possible link between the Obama presidency and this leftist group.Tyrant Obama

On March 1, 2008, before U.S. presidential elections, Operation Phoenix was launched by Colombian special security forces just inside the Ecuadorian border. Raúl Reyes, second in command of the FARC, was killed. Documents found in Reyes’ computer after his death disclosed that “gringos” representing Obama wanted to meet with the FARC and that they were opposed to U.S. military aid for the Colombian government. Obama had been publicly critical of the Colombia government’s human rights record.

The Bush administration, using the services of the NSA, helped the Colombian government of President Alvaro Uribe in its war with the Cuban-backed FARC by locating and killing terrorist leaders and decimating the organization. But Uribe’s successor, President Juan Manuel Santos, the former defense minister, suddenly opened up negotiations with the FARC in Havana and has recently suspended the bombing of FARC camps and bases. As a result, the Santos-led negotiations could enable the FARC to escape criminal charges and emerge in the political process in Colombia as a respectable opposition movement.

Supporters of Uribe accuse Santos of allowing “Castro-Chavism” in the country, a reference to the long-time Cuban dictator and former Marxist ruler of Venezuela. Although the members of the São Paulo Forum do not believe in democracy, the FARC seems to have learned the lesson that they have to disguise themselves as democratic forces in order to further their goals, as their armed struggle has not been successful.

Like Obama in the U.S., these Marxists work through the system and slowly dismantle democratic institutions and checks on their power.America are you paying attention

On Saturday, March 21, at 1:00 p.m., the Washington Conclave for Democracy will be held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. to discuss freedom, democracy and free elections in Latin America. “The conference is aimed to expose fraud and deception in electoral processes in Latin America,” says organizer Dalmo Accorsini. The event is open to the press and the public and will feature several speakers with knowledge of the communist advance in the Western hemisphere, including in the U.S.

“We reject US fraudulent offer of reaching a deal with Iran first then lifting sanctions” – Grand_Ayatollah_Ali_Khamenei,

As the arbitrary deadline to strike a deal with Iran draws close, Secretary Kerry says “genuine progress” has been made. France is not so sure the negotiations are going well, and neither is Israel. Both nations share concerns that Iran is receiving far too many concessions, saying any rush to relax sanctions is not a deal worth making.Space Cadet

While talks proceed, and Kerry attempts to assures America with platitudes, Senator Cotton reminds us who we’re negotiating with:

iran 01

Regardless of what Secretary Kerry tells the Associated Press, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader is not exactly a fan of Obama, America, or any deal that doesn’t remove sanctions. And if you need more proof, look no further than than the Ayatollah’s Twitter feed.

FEMA Refuses Relief Funding to “Climate Denier” States

Tyranney Alert

Welcome to the ObamaFEMA recently weighed in on the climate change debate by refusing to give disaster relief funding to any state that didn’t have established protocols to address climate change:

This may put several Republican governors who maintain the earth isn’t warming due to human activities, or prefer to do nothing about it, into a political bind. Their position may block their states’ access to hundreds of millions of dollars in FEMA funds. Over the past five years, the agency has awarded an average $1 billion a year in grants to states and territories for taking steps to mitigate the effects of disasters.

“If a state has a climate denier governor that doesn’t want to accept a plan, that would risk mitigation work not getting done because of politics,” said Becky Hammer, an attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council’s water program. “The governor would be increasing the risk to citizens in that state” because of his climate beliefs.Picture1

While I don’t appreciate FEMA strong-arming states over climate change, this scenario provides states a unique opportunity to extricate themselves from at least some policy-swaying federal funding. Because let’s face it, this latest manipulative stunt by FEMA is merely the most recent and most transparent case where the federal government has exercised political control over state governments through “strings-attached” funding offers.

The history of “baited” federal funding is long and treacherous. From healthcare, education, and roads to this most recent disaster relief funding, the federal government has regularly used funding promises to enforce its own standards in contradiction to the will of local governments.

We can’t say we believe in the sovereignty of states and the importance of local governments when our local governments are unwilling to refuse federal funds. Government bloat and centralization begins there, and it must be fixed there. FEMA wants to manipulate states into following its climate change agenda? So be it. How about this time, at least, we don’t bite.Dupe and Chains Picture6

 

 

More News Exposing MOA Terrorist Camps Inside America

National Enquirer Map.JPG

muslim-obama  It seems there’s nowhere to hide for Muslims of America  (MOA), investigated by the FBI as an international terrorist organization. Law enforcement has documented nearly 20 Islamic compounds scattered across the United States that have a history of murder, firebombings, assassinations and a host of other violent and non-violent crimes. This year alone, MOA has been the focus of countless news articles, including mainstream television reports such as Fox News and the History Channel. Now MOA is being exposed by the tabloids.

This week (November 10 – 17) the National Enquirer is distributing newspapers to grocery and convenient stores with a front-page headline reading: “Evil Terror Camps Hidden In America.  Do you live near one?”  The article cites an FBI report saying members of the American-based Islamic group are “encouraged to travel to Pakistan to receive religious and military/terrorist training” under Sheikh Gilani, the group’s leader. The tabloid calls Gilani an “evil spiritual leader” who hates America.

It quotes Gilani as saying, “We are fighting to destroy the enemy. We are dealing with evil at its roots and its roots are America.”Islam is NOT

The newspaper also has a map of the United States that identifies 20 locations where MOA have “villages.” The headline above the map screams: “TERROR IS ON OUR DOORSTEP.” As of this writing, MOA has not yet responded to the National Enquirer article and when the Enquirer attempted to give them a chance to rebut the charges, they declined.

Last year, leaders of MOA sued Christian Action Network making for similar claims in our book, Twilight In America. The lawsuit was dismissed by a federal judge in April, though leaders of MOA have asked the court to reconsider its dismissal. A ruling is expected later this month.

New Climate Paper Gives Global Warming Alarmists ‘One Helluva Beating’


by James Delingpole, 20 Mar 2015

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/03/20/new-climate-paper-gives-global-warming-alarmists-one-helluva-beating/

The paper – Rethinking the lower bound on aerosol radiative forcing by Bjorn Stevens of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, Germany, published in the American Meteorological Society journal – finds that the effects of aerosols on climate are much smaller than those in almost all the computer models used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.climate

Aerosols are the minute particles added to the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels (as well as by non-anthropogenic sources, like volcanoes). The reason they are important is that they are so often cited by alarmists to excuse the awkward fact that the world has stubbornly failed to warm at the disastrous rate they predicted it would.

Apparently – or so the excuse goes – these aerosols are masking the true extent of runaway climate change by cancelling out the effects of man-made CO2.

Here, for example, is a NASA expert in 2009:

Using climate models, we estimate that aerosols have masked about 50 percent of the warming that would otherwise have been caused by greenhouse gases trapping heat near the surface of the Earth

Here is a report on a study from another institution – NOAA – with a long track record of ramping up the alarmist cause.

A new study led by the U.S, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows that tiny particles that make their way all the way up into the stratosphere may be offsetting a global rise in temperatures due to carbon emissions.

Aerosols are often used to explain the lack of “global warming” in the cooling period between 1940 and 1970 (when the growth in industrialisation and all that extra man-made CO2 ought to have begun taking effect).

They have also been used in this 2011 paper – whose co-authors include one Michael Mann, which gives you an idea of its quality and reliability – for the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA (PNAS). It claims that the reason there has been a “hiatus” in global warming since 1998 is because of the effect of aerosol emissions. This got one of the BBC’s resident alarmists Richard Black very excited. He wrote it up in an article entitled Global warming lull down to China’s coal growth. (Oddly he forgot to surround it with scare quotes, or finish it with a question mark.)

The new Stevens paper has been described as a “game-changer” by one expert in the field, Nic Lewis. According to the IPCC’s models, the effect of aerosols on climate could be as much as 4.5 degrees C. But Stevens paper suggests that this is a considerable overestimate and that the reduction they effect on temperature cannot be more than 1.8 degrees C.

This pretty much kills the alarmists’ “the aerosols ate my homework” excuse stone dead. If the cooling effects of aerosols turn out to be much smaller than the IPCC thinks, then what this means is that the rise in global temperatures attributable to man-made CO2 is also much smaller than the alarmists’ computer models acknowledge.

As Andrew Montford comments here:

Jim Hansen, Bob Ward, Kevin Trenberth, Michael Mann and Gavin Schmidt, your climate alarmism just took one helluva beating.

Iran Supreme Leader’s Rep: “We Will Not Rest Until We Have Raised the Banner of Islam over the White House”

Screen-Shot-2014-04-02-at-4.39.04-PM

While Obama sends greetings to Iran, Iran’s leaders have a message for him.

While Secretary of State John Kerry continues to negotiate with Iran over their nuclear program, one of that country’s top military officials has vowed to “raise the banner of Islam over the White House.”Islam is NOT

According to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Ali Shirazi, the representative of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) elite Qods Force, made the remarks at a February 26 ceremony attended by families of martyrs.

According to MEMRI, Shirazi promised that:

“We will not rest until we have raised the banner of Islam over the White House. The Islamic nation is determined to enter the arena with all its force, backed by Allah’s will and his grace, and to stand fast against the world of arrogance. They will not suppress us with sanctions and threats. You did not succeed in harming the regime on the day it emerged, and now that the regime is 36 years old, you, the enemies of Islam, must expect and realize that every day [you] will be beaten, across the world.”

“When we look at the Islamic world, we see that the culture of the Islamic Revolution has reached all countries and all Muslims throughout the world,” Mr. Shirazi said. “This is why love of martyrdom is spreading. This has come about thanks to the blood of your [sons], the martyrs.”

I’m sure we can trust these fine folks with nukes, they seem really peaceful.

When the US tried to list the IRGC as a terrorist group for helping kill Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan, Biden and Kerry… along with Obama opposed it. Here’s the IRGC’s gratitude to Barack and Biden.

“Five years after Iraq war vote, we’re still foolishly rattling our sabers,” Obama wrote then of the IRGC designation. Iran has never stopped rattling its sabers. And Obama has never stopped cringing before it.muslim-obama Islamapologist Obama Muslim collection

Obama, Media Lied About Netanyahu and the Palestinian State


by Ben Shapiro, 20 Mar 2015

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2015/03/20/obama-media-lied-about-netanyahu-and-the-palestinian-state/

The interview in which Netanyahu expressed the much-misinterpreted remark took place with the conservative Israeli publication NRG. It also took place in Hebrew, a language virtually none of the members of the Western press read or speak; most simply took the Ha’aretz report and ran with it. Netanyahu was asked directly about whether his Bar-Ilan speech was “irrelevant.” Here is what Netanyahu actually said:

NETANYAHU: I think anyone who is going to build a Palestinian state today will be freeing up space to give an attack area to radical Islam against Israel. This is the reality created here in recent years. Anyone who ignores this sticks his head in the sand. The left does this, burying its head in the sand again and again. We are realistic and understand…

NRG: If you are elected head of state, no Palestinian state will come to fruition?

NETANYAHU: Indeed.

NRG: Construction in Jerusalem and the West Bank will renew?

NETANYAHU: We are continuing all the time, but that’s not a question about additional building. There is a real threat that the government of the left will join the international community and do their bidding….Picture2

Netanyahu continued by arguing that the left would buy into the “international initiatives to return to the 1967 borders and divide Jerusalem.” In other words, Netanyahu did not discount the possibility of a Palestinian state forever. He said that anyone who tries to build a Palestinian state “hayom” – “today” – would be giving territory to radical Islam. He even added that this was a reality created in recent years.Picture1

To read that as a wholesale rejection of a Palestinian state is to lie. Which is what Ha’aretz did. And the entire lazy and ridiculous world media followed. Netanyahu never flip-flopped, because Netanyahu never flipped. Party of Deciet and lies

And Netanyahu’s policy is the exact same as the policy of the man who created the Oslo Accords, Yitzchak Rabin, who said just one month before his assassination in 1995, “We view a permanent solution [involving] a Palestinian entity which is less than a state… We will not return to the June 4, 1967 lines… We committed ourselves before the Knesset not to uproot a single settlement in the framework of the interim agreement, and not to hinder building for natural growth… And first and foremost in our concerns is a united Jerusalem, as the capital of Israel, under Israeli sovereignty.”

Fourth Amendment Violated: US Citizen Detained & Arrested Over 50 Miles Inside Border by Border Patrol


Posted by Tim Brown

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://freedomoutpost.com/2015/03/us-citizens-detained-arrested-over-50-miles-inside-border-by-border-patrol/#CetI10DrkO1AQU2v.99

 Welcome to the Obama

A family of three were coming through a Border Patrol station that was more than 50 miles inside the US border. Upon pulling up to a Border Patrol agent, the man was asked where he was going and in response the man said he didn’t have to answer the question, which is true under the law. Agents then pulled him from the vehicle and arrested him.

Understand that Border Patrol is an unconstitutional agency under the Executive Branch of the federal government. Our Constitution does not provide for a Border Patrol agency at all, much less one that is located away from the border.

According to the dashcam video of the incident, the husband and wife and son were having a little talk back and forth before their approach of the Border Patrol agent. Once the vehicle was stopped, here’s how the incident went down.

“How are you, where are you going to today?” asked the agent.

“I’m sorry, sir,” said the man. “I don’t have to answer that question.”

The question was repeated and the man refused to answer the question. As a result, the man was asked to pull his car over and park it. The man refused and you can see the agent’s hand illegally slip in through the window in an attempt to get inside the vehicle.

“Get your hands out of my car,” the man told the agent. He forces the agent’s arm out of the car as the agent unlawfully opens his door and attempts to pull him out of the vehicle, even though he still has his seat belt buckled.

“Dude what is your problem?” the man asked in frustration. “I’ve got to unbuckle my seatbelt. … You’re being recorded.”

“This is assault,” he said. “What is your reasonable suspicion?”

The man is alluding to the Fourth Amendment, something that is supposed to be upheld by these people.

The man does answer the question of his citizenship as a “United States citizen.” His wife also affirms she is a citizen.

The agent then asks if there is anything in the trunk. The man says there is not and specifically tells the agent that he does not have his consent to either search the vehicle or seize anything.

The agent is once again asked for a reasonable suspicion, which he is denied. He is then forced out of the car and handcuffed.

While the agent acknowledge being recorded, his response for why he did what he was doing was that it was not “against policy.”Worried Yet

Maybe it’s not against “policy,” but it is surely against the law. The Fourth Amendment states clearly:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The agent then entered the car and moved it and as he did, he claimed that the dog alerted to the car, but he added, “Your husband put us in a bind.”

Well, what about the bind these gestapo-style thugs put this family in? Furthermore, the four-year-old didn’t want the Border Patrol agent anywhere near him. He screamed, “I don’t like you!”DHS

The agents are clearly violating the Fourth Amendment as they begin to search the vehicle without permission, without a reasonable suspicion and without a warrant that would detail exactly what they are looking for. Clearly, they did not want the incident to continue to be recorded and the agent is seen turning off the camera.

Furthermore, these Border Patrol stations are not to be used to look for drugs as an initial reason for such apprehension. That is expressly forbidden as I have recounted before.cropped-freedom-is-not-dictator-friendly.png

The man has been identified as Rick Herbert and the Border Patrol agent who violated Herbert’s rights was J. Valdivia, according to his tag. The incident occurred on March 12, 2015 at a checkpoint 35 miles north of El Centro, a border town in California, east of San Diego. The video was uploaded on March 17, 2015. An account has been set up to help the family with attorney fees. If you wish to help, click here.

For some people to say, “Well, if had only answered the question posed to him, none of this would have happened” is to miss the point of who is doing what is unlawful in the first place.
