Treason: Obama Aids the Enemy

treason-obamaWell, that didn’t take long. This summer after Barack Obama inexplicably (and illegally) freed five of the Taliban’s most deadly terrorists in exchange for army deserter Bowe Bergdahl, I asked a burning question – a question that remains unanswered: “What will it take for our spineless U.S. Congress to impeach this tyrant? This is way beyond partisan politics. This is about justice. This is about the safety of the American people. Barack Hussein Obama is America’s biggest threat to national security. He is ‘an enemy within.’”

By striking this Faustian bargain with the devil, not only did Obama unilaterally trash the U.S. government’s long-standing policy never to negotiate with terrorists, he brazenly violated a 2013 national defense bill that unambiguously requires he give Congress 30-days notice before releasing any Guantanamo Bay prisoners, much less five of its most deadly.

Article III, Section 3, Clause 1, of the U.S. Constitution defines the crime of treason – dare I say the “high crime” of treason – as “levying War against [the United States], or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”Obama Muslim collection

Whether Obama is intentionally trying to overthrow his own government is open for debate. But that he is, “adhering to [America’s] Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort,” is without question.

“There is no doubt that Americans will die as a direct result of Obama’s demonstrably illegal actions here,” I wrote back in June. “With most of these monsters in their 40s, they’ve got decades to kill as many Americans as they can get their blood-soaked hands on.”

The National Enquirer, of all publications, interviewed me on my analysis, publishing a feature article that largely echoed my sentiments and concluded, “Meanwhile, D.C. insiders say that the only way the Bergdahl fiasco will ‘disappear’ is if the U.S. gets involved in an ongoing crisis elsewhere, which will allow President Obama to ‘redeem himself’ in not only the eyes of his critics but the world.”

While the Obama administration has, no doubt, manufactured many a crisis elsewhere, no such redemption has been forthcoming. Neither has the Bergdahl scandal disappeared. Instead, that which even hard-left Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., feared has, in a few short months, and quite predictably so, become reality. We now learn from a reluctant Obama media that at least one of the “Taliban Five” – one of these faithful followers of Muhammad – intends to kill more American citizens.

Reports CNN:

“The U.S. military and intelligence community now suspect that one of the five Taliban detainees released from Guantanamo Bay in return for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in May of last year has attempted to return to militant activity. …

“It comes at a politically sensitive time as the administration has quickened the pace of prisoner release in an effort to encourage the closure of Guantanamo, and the Army must decide in the coming weeks whether and how to punish Bergdahl for leaving his post. [It’s called wartime desertion, CNN. Until recently it got you lined up and shot.]”

According to a September congressional report, “about 17 percent of detainees transferred out of Guantanamo Bay are confirmed by the U.S. to have returned to militant activity. About 12 percent are in the suspected category,” noted CNN.

And so as Barack Obama recklessly sows the seeds of a foolish, politically driven campaign promise, we begin to reap the poisonous fruit of his incompetence. As intelligence concludes that nearly one-third (probably more) of these rabid jihadi dogs will return to their rabid jihadi ways, Obama yet races to loose them from their chains. (Hey, I hear ISIS has several openings in HR [Head Removal]. Perhaps our Muslim-sympathizer-in-chief can whip-up a quick batch of reference letters.)Islam is NOT

I wish it could be said that this man is simply an incompetent fool, but I fear it’s much more complicated than all that. At best, Barack Hussein Obama is a full-blown dhimmi (one who surrenders to Muslim dominance). At worst, he shares with Muslims the sworn enemies of both the Quran and “progressivism,” namely Israel and Christianity.Wake up America

Regrettably, I believe the latter to be true. I believe that this president’s well-established propensity to give aid and comfort to our Islamic enemies stems from an attitude best described, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”

Long gone are the days when calling an American president a tyrant and accusing him of treason amounted to political hyperbole. Just a few short decades ago this anti-American Marxist would not only have been accused of treason, he would have been tried for it.

But alas, inaction and injustice are the lawless hallmarks of today’s political milieu.

We’ve become “fundamentally transformed,” all right.

Remember the now infamous Rose Garden presser? The shameful images are forever etched in the annals of American history: Obama, standing side-by-side with, and even embracing, Robert Bergdahl, the father of an American traitor and apparent Muslim convert himself. When he took to the podium, among the first words from the elder Bergdahl’s mouth were, in Arabic, “Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim,” which means, “In the name of Allah, the merciful, the compassionate.” This, according to a number of Islamic scholars and CIA experts, was a “Muslim victory call” intended to “claim the White House for Islam.”

Hmm: to claim the White House for Islam. So it would seem.

Meanwhile, Rose Garden honoree Bowe Bergdahl, a man the Obama administration says “served the United States with honor and distinction,” faces likely court-martial for desertion.

While Barack Obama faces another round of golf.

US District Court Put on Notice of Obama’s Treason Following Bergdahl Trade


http://freedomoutpost.com/2014/06/orly-taitz-us-district-court-notice-obamas-treason-bowe-bergdahl-trade/#SyUHkkVCwWPY3gQQ.99

Investigated and Reported by

On Friday, California Attorney Orly Taitz put US District Court Judge Ellen L. Hollander on notice of Barack Hussein Obama’s treason following the release of five top Taliban jihadists in an illegal prisoner trade for an American deserter, Bowe Bergdahl.

Attorney Taitz has been involved with Judge Hollander in a case to expose the fraudulent use of a Social Security number by Barack Obama. Many question whether Judge Hollander will pursue this matter seriously, considering that she was appointed by Obama in 2010.

On Friday, Taitz not only filed the notice (civil docket #: 1:13-cv-01878-ELH) in the District of Maryland, but also talked about the issue on KABC radio, explaining how Social Security number 042-68-4425, which is from Connecticut and belongs to Harry Bounel, but has been used by Obama to file his tax returns. This, in conjunction with the use of fraudulent ID’s and the appeasement of America’s enemies, indicates that there is a usurper in the White House and that his actions are not in the interests of the United States.

In her emergency motion, Orly Taitz stated:

NOTICE OF TREASON COMMITTED BY THE HOLDER OF THE STOLEN CONNECTICUT SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER xxx-xx-4425 OF HARRY BOUNEL, RISK TO NATIONAL SECURITY.

MOTION TO EXPEDITE MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION, EXPEDITE RELASE OF THE SS-5 TO SSN XXX-XX-4425 OF HARRY BOUNEL FRAUDULENTLY ASSUMED BY BARRY

SOETORO, AKA BARRY SOEBARKAH, AKA BARACK OBAMA.

MOTION TO EXPEDIENTLY FORWARD TO THE FEDERAL GRAND JURY UNDER 18 USC 3332 OR ORDER BY THE COURT TO THE US ATTORNEY TO FORWARD TO THE FEDERAL

GRAND JURY EVIDENCE OF OBAMA’S USE OF A STOLEN CT SSN XX-XX-4425 AND BOGUS IDS, AS WELL AS RECENT ACT OF TREASON BY OBAMA, AKA SOETORO, AKA SOEBARKAH.

Taitz defined treason as 18 U.S. Code § 2381 does:

“Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

I have previously defined treason, using merely the US Constitution and provided the evidence as to Obama’s treason on the basis of his aiding and abetting the Muslim Brotherhood jihadist organization.

ConfusedIn her motion, Taitz provided the background of Khairulla Khairkhwa as a top Taliban leader, who was transferred to the control of Qatar along with five others earlier this month. She then wrote in her notice, “So, if the US District Court Senior Judge, Royce C. Lambeth, who was overseeing the case after resignation of Judge Urbina, wanted to stay this release due to prior finding of threat to national security, this could not have been done, since Obama notified the court four days after he sent the detainee to sunbathe in Qatar. Similarly, Obama did not provide 30 day notification to the US Congress, which was required under 2014 NDAA, so the two co-equal branches of the US government were not able to stop this egregious act of treason and this transfer which greatly endangered US National security. Consequently, Taliban commanders made statements that this release was equal to gaining 10,000 Taliban fighters.”

“It is further noteworthy that Obama did not title the document as a release from GITMO, but titled is as a transfer,” Taitz continued. “Further, the name of the detainee was written differently from the name in the caption in the case, which made it difficult to find the document. In the caption the first name of the detainee is Khairulla. In the release, titled as transfer, the first name was divided into two names: ‘KHAI ULLA.’ Moreover, two middle names, which were not in the original caption were inserted: ‘SAID WALI.’ So the original name from the caption in the case ‘Khairulla Khairkhwa’ looked completely different ‘KHAIR ULLA SAID WALI KHAIRKHWA.’ Plaintiff believes that it was done to obfuscate the record.”

Who is better offMrs. Taitz also informed the court that the actions of Obama, “greatly encouraged and invigorated jihadists and Taliban fighters took over the airport in Karachi and murdered 12. Five US soldiers were killed reportedly with stinger missile, jihadists groups went into offensive and took over the whole area between central Syria to central Iraq and took over Mosul and Tiqrit. This caused fleeing by 500,000 refuges and the jihadist army is now rapidly closing in on the capital of Iraq, Bagdad. Based on all of the above over 4,000 lives of the US soldiers lost in operation ‘Iraqi Freedom,’ were lost in vain, not mentioning 68,000 soldiers, who were severely wounded, paralyzed, lost limbs and became disabled for life.”

Therefore, Taitz has requested that the court expedite a motion for reconsideration and release of the information pertinent to the Social Security number of Harry Bounel that has been assumed by Obama, and to forward to the federal grand jury, under 18 USC 3332 the evidence of Obama’s use of a stolen Connecticut Social Security number, as well as bogus IDs.

Acting Director of the Social Security Administration Carolyn Colvin, is the defendant in the case and apparently is unwilling to deal with the apparent fraud in her federal agency, with regard to the occupant of the White House.

obama-liar4-266x189Mrs. Taitz’s case has been so compelling, it has led California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher to question why Obama doesn’t have valid IDs and Social Security number. Meanwhile, Taitz also joined others on Saturday in protesting Obama during his commencement speech at Anaheim stadium for University of California at Irvine students.

While Taitz works the legal angle, most of the members of Congress have failed to do their do their duty, and in some cases quite arrogantly. There are even claims that have surfaced by members of the media that claim conservatives even kept a lid on Obama’s ineligibility out of fear of their government and some politicians who wouldn’t pursue the matter because of “future political aspirations.”

UPDATE: A Reader provided the court’s ruling in the matter, which I did not previously have. Here is Judge Hollander’s ruling.

In it, she writes:

“Plaintiff’s “Emergency Motion” and the various forms of relief requested therein will be denied. It has literally no relation to plaintiff’s case in this Court. Instead, plaintiff uses the motion to attack President Obama for recent actions he has taken in his capacity as President of the United States. Needless to say, plaintiff’s disagreement with President Obama’s presidential decision-making does not provide support for her allegation that the SSA’s response to her FOIA request was inadequate.”

She then concludes, “For the reasons stated previously, and for the reasons expressed here, the Court will grant the Motion to Expedite, will deny the “Emergency Motion” in all other respects, and will deny the Motion for Reconsideration. A separate Order follows.”

Hollander seems to show some prejudice in the matter as she claims Taitz took the time to attack Obama in his capacity as President. However, everyone knows, including those in his own party that the transfer of top Taliban leaders, apart from notifying Congress, is not “in his capacity as President,” but is a violation of law. What does that have to do with the case of the Social Security number? To be fair they are two different things. However, consider that if Obama is willing to break the law in aiding and abetting the enemies of America, does anyone seriously think he would have an issue with falsifying documents in order to obtain the highest office in the land? I think not.

CNN: Intercepted Radio Chatter Indicated Bergdahl Sought Contact With Taliban


http://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2014/06/04/cnn-radio-chatter-indicates-bergdahl-sought-contract-with-the-taliban-n1847233

Guy Benson | Jun 04, 2014

CNN landed the interview, but the dramatic allegation comes from Sgt. Evan Buetow — Bowe Bergdahl’s team leader. To briefly recap what we’ve learned today, according to Fox News, “many” US intelligence officials have harbored concerns that Bergdahl may have “actively collaborated” with the Taliban enemy. The New York Times and Fox both published scoops regarding Bergdahl’s desertion note, which may have suggested (whatever that means) a desire to abandon his American citizenship. And now this:

Within days of his disappearance, says Buetow, teams monitoring radio chatter and cell phone communications intercepted an alarming message: The American is in Yahya Khel (a village two miles away). He’s looking for someone who speaks English so he can talk to the Taliban. “I heard it straight from the interpreter’s lips as he heard it over the radio,” said Buetow. “There’s a lot more to this story than a soldier walking away.” … “For 60 days or more, I remember, just straight, all we did was search for Bergdahl,” said Buetow, “essentially chasing a ghost because we never came up with anything.” At least six soldiers were killed in subsequent searches for him, according to soldiers involved in those operations…Many soldiers in Bergdahl’s platoon said attacks seemed to increase against the United States in Paktika province in the days and weeks following his disappearance. “Following his disappearance, IEDs started going off directly under the trucks. They were getting perfect hits every time. Their ambushes were very calculated, very methodical,” said Buetow. It was “very suspicious,” says Buetow, noting that Bergdahl knew sensitive information about the movement of U.S. trucks, the weaponry on those trucks, and how soldiers would react to attacks. “We were incredibly worried” that Bergdahl was giving up information, either under torture, or otherwise, says Buetow.

Honor and distinction.” This is deadly serious stuff, literally. Bergdahl’s unit leader on the night he evidently deserted claims that intercepted communications from shortly after Bergdahl’s disappearance indicated that he may have been proactively seeking out the Taliban. The kindest explanation is that Bergdahl was already being held against his will in some fashion and was desperate to communicate with his captors as a means of self-preservation. But it’s pretty clear that Buetow doesn’t believe that. He takes things a step further, theorizing that Bergdahl may have lent his expertise to the enemy in order to improve the effectiveness of their ambushes and IEDs. If your instinct is to wave that theory away as extreme, consider two factors: (1) Wikileaks cables appear to corroborate a major part of Buetow’s account, and (2) the UK Daily Mail printed this all the way back in 2010:

A captured American soldier is training Taliban fighters bomb-making and ambush skills, according to one of his captors and Afghan intelligence officials. Private Bowe Bergdahl disappeared in June 2009 while based in eastern Afghanistan and is thought to be the only U.S. serviceman in captivity. The 24-year-old has converted to Islam and now has the Muslim name Abdullah, one of his captors told The Sunday Times.

In a vacuum, I wouldn’t necessarily put too much stock in the word of the Taliban, or Afghan intelligence officials. But now we have Buetow’s accusations to add into the equation, and people on both sides of this conflict have told a hauntingly similar story. These fears look more realistic than ever. The president must have known Bergdahl’s case was a minefield, but some combination of arrogance and tone-deafness led him to disregard internal concerns from the defense and intel communities, and to convince himself that this news would be met with euphoric celebrations. In case you were curious, Obama is “unapologetic” over the decision, of course. The same can’t be said of many Senate Democrats who’ve suddenly gone, well, AWOL on this story. I wonder why. Could it be that unlawfully releasing five hardened Taliban commanders from US custody with loose (if any) security precautions in place in exchange for an apparent deserter and alleged enemy collaborator might be…politically toxic? As you know, I’ve been scratching my head over this whole thing for days now. Finally, some pieces seem to be falling into place. Between the “expected euphoria” report, the Guantanamo Bay closure experiment angle, and the crucial detail that Team Obama was reportedly itching to relieve themselves of these particular jihadists for some reason before Bergdahl became a hostage, I suspectAllahpunditmay be right on the money:

allah“Could this be President’s Obama attempt at empting GITMO in order to shut it down? Could he be depending on his Muslim buddies kidnapping Americans (anywhere) and holding them for GITMO detainees exchange? Sounds credible given President Obama’s conduct over the last 6 years. SORRY YET?” JB

The simple calculation came to a halt when the public, press, and Bergdahl’s former brothers didn’t react the way the White House anticipated.

Treason: Obama Continues Support of Muslim Brotherhood as He Thumbs Nose at Vets


http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/10/treason-obama-continues-support-muslim-brotherhood-thumbs-nose-vets/#ixzz2hkjQOGUs

 What do you call it when the man holding the Office of the President of the United States thumbs his nose at the veterans of America who have bled, died and lost friends in fighting against threats to the American Constitution and the American people, and yet, supports with weapons and financial aid the sworn enemies of America? I believe it is the dreaded “T” word. However, don’t take my word for it, view the evidence for yourself.

According to the United States Constitution, Article 3, Section 3″

“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”

Here is where we start. While not technically a “war” on our veterans, who are a part of the United States, it was clear that Barack Obama was out to threaten them with sheer force, as demonstrated in the video below:

We saw over the past week how Barack Obama has thumbed his nose at our veterans by closing down the war memorials in Washington, and as they stormed DC this weekend, removed the “Barrycades” around the memorials and dumped them in front of the White House, he simply ordered them to be put back up. We’ve seen the distain that Obama has had for our men and women in the Armed Forces. We’ve seen how his administration has left Americans to die in Benghazi and even failed to be discreet about Special Forces, leaking confidential information, leading to the untimely deaths of the elite Navy SEALs aboard Extortion 17. There are some who believe the leaking of that information was an act of treason on the part of the Obama administration.

cicero on treasonWhile Obama closed memorials for our veterans, he allowed law breakers and their sympathizers to organize on the National Mall and demand we change our laws to accommodate their lawlessness.

The Constitution also mentions “aid and comfort being supplied to the enemy.” According the Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, “aid” is defined as:

“To help; to assist; to support, either by furnishing strength or means to effect a purpose”

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary also defines “comfort” as:

“Relief from pain; ease; rest or moderate pleasure after pain, cold or distress or uneasiness of body. The word signifies properly new strength, or animation; and relief from pain is often the effect of strength. In a popular sense, the word signifies rather negatively the absence of pain and the consequent quiet, than positive animation; Support; consolation under calamity, distress or danger; In law, support; assistance; countenance; encouragement; as, an accessory affords aid or comfort to a felon.”

110621zieveObama has provided this not only for illegal immigrants in this country, but he has done it for other criminal elements in our country, Islamic jihadists in foreign countries, including Muslim Brotherhood governments such as the former government in Egypt.

Under Barack Obama, who has been outed as a Muslim Brotherhood member and his brother is a financier of the Muslim Brotherhood with tax exempt status, former Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi received the following:

Remember, Mohamed Morsi was implicated in the attacks on Benghazi. Even the Egyptian people understood that Barack Obama was a supporter of terrorism and either Barack Obama is a complete moron, or he knows exactly what he is doing. One of Egypt’s politicians admitted that the United States is their enemy!

  • Arif Alikhan – Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
  • Mohamed Elibiary – Homeland Security Adviser, whom we called out on this occasion and this occasion.
  • Rashad Hussain – Special Envoy to the (OIC) Organization of the Islamic Conference.
  • Salam al-Marayati – Obama Adviser, founder of Muslim Public Affairs Council and its current executive director.
  • Imam Mohamed Magid – Obama’s Sharia Czar, Islamic Society of North America.
  • Eboo Patel – Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.
  • John Brennan – Central Intelligence Agency Director

Barack Obama has even told Egyptian Christians to simply shut up and stop protesting the Muslim Brotherhood who actively fought and murdered Coptic Christians throughout Egypt.

Earlier this year we made you aware that Obama was using the CIA to deliver weapons to Obama-supported jihadists in Syria and that he had been providing aid in the form of arms to Syrian jihadists since 2012. He even knowingly waived the ban on arming terrorists to do so.

Obama’s most recent aid to the enemy has come to light in a new program which has been announced by the United States and Turkey that alleges that it will stem the tide of Islamic jihad. It’s called the Global Fund for Community Engagement and Resilience. The US will start off contributing $2-3 million in taxpayer money to fund it, but that amount will increase to over $200 million in contributions of other countries.

According to Dave Jolly at Godfather Politics:

The goal of the global fund is to ‘combat violent extremism by undercutting the ideological and recruiting appeal of jihadists in places like Somalia, Yemen and Pakistan.’  Some critics believe that the concept behind this will actually increase support for more moderate Islamic groups like the Muslim Brotherhood.  They compare it to flawed logic of James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence who on January 31, 2012 stated:

“Al-Qaeda probably will find it difficult to compete for local support with groups like the Muslim Brotherhood that participate in the political process, provide social services and advocate religious values. Non-violent, pro-democracy demonstrations challenge Al-Qaeda’s violent jihadist ideology and might yield increased political power for secular or moderate Islamist parties.”

After hearing this, now consider a recent report from John Guandolo, a former FBI agent and counter-terrorism expert who says that the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan is to overthrow the United States government.  In an interview with OneNewsNow, Guandolo referred to the Muslim Brotherhood saying:

“[Leaders are] dismissing a massive threat.”

He explains that the Muslim Brotherhood is not as intent on forcing non-Muslims to convert to Islam rather it is to make them subject to Islamic law.

“Whether you are subordinated to it as a non-Muslim and pay the non-Muslim poll tax, or you are killed or you convert to Islam.  It’s one of those. It’s their choice. You don’t get to pick from the menu of items – it’s up to them what becomes of you.”

How any of this can be dismissed as “not rising to the level of impeachment” or not considered treasonous, as defined by the Constitution, is beyond me. If this isn’t enough, then there is this documented list of his lies, lawbreaking, corruption and cronyism. Apparently, our elected leaders seem more concerned with negotiating with a traitor on a spending bill, than they do holding him accountable for his crimes. My question to them is, why?

What are your thoughts?

25 Quotes About The Coming War With Syria That Every American Should See


By Michael Snyder via TEC // http://www.officialteapartyusa.com/pt/25-Quotes-About-The-Coming-War-With-Syria-That-Every-American-Should-See.8-30-2013/blog.htm#.UiC6JlTHMw4.facebook

Aircraft-Carrier-War-With-Syria-300x300

If Barack Obama is going to attack Syria, he is going to do it without the support of the American people, without the approval of Congress, without the approval of the United Nations, and without the help of the British.  Now that the British Parliament has voted against a military strike, the Obama administration is saying that it may take “unilateral action” against Syria.  But what good would “a shot across Syria’s bow” actually do?  A “limited strike” is not going to bring down the Assad regime and it is certainly not going to end the bloody civil war that has been raging inside Syria.  Even if the U.S. eventually removed Assad, the al-Qaeda affiliated rebels that would take power would almost certainly be even worse than Assad.  Even in the midst of this bloody civil war, the rebels have taken the time and the effort to massacre entire Christian villages.  Why is Barack Obama so obsessed with helping such monsters?  There is no good outcome in Syria.  The Assad regime is absolutely horrible and the rebels are even worse.  Why would we want the U.S. military to get involved in such a mess?

It isn’t as if it is even possible for the U.S. military to resolve the conflict that is going on in that country.  At the core, the Syrian civil war is about Sunni Islam vs. Shia Islam.  It is a conflict that goes back well over a thousand years.

Assad is Shiite, but the majority of Syrians are Sunni Muslims.  Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been pouring billions of dollars into the conflict, because they would love to see the Assad regime eliminated and a Sunni government come to power in Syria.  On the other side, Iran is absolutely determined to not allow that to happen.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar have no problem with using Sunni terrorists (al-Qaeda) to achieve their political goals.  And as a very important ally of the Saudis, the U.S. has been spending a lot of money to train and equip the “rebels” in Syria.

But there was a problem.  The Syrian government has actually been defeating the rebels.  So something had to be done.

If it could be made to look like the Assad regime was using chemical weapons, that would give the U.S. government the “moral justification” that it needed to intervene militarily on the side of the rebels.  In essence, it would be a great excuse for the U.S. to be able to go in and do the dirty work of the Saudis for them.

So that is where we are today.  The justification for attacking Syria that the Obama administration is giving us goes something like this…

-Chemical weapons were used in Syria.

-The rebels do not have the ability to use chemical weapons.

-Therefore it must have been the Assad regime that was responsible for using chemical weapons.

-The U.S. military must punish the use of chemical weapons to make sure that it never happens again.

Unfortunately for the Obama administration, the world is not buying it.  In fact, people are seeing right through this charade.

The U.S. government spends $52,000,000,000 a year on “intelligence”, but apparently our intelligence community absolutely refuses to see the obvious.  WND has been able to uncover compelling evidence that the rebels in Syria have used chemical weapons repeatedly, and yet government officials continue to insist over and over that no such evidence exists and that we need to strike Syria immediately.

Shouldn’t we at least take a little bit of time to figure out who is actually in the wrong before we start letting cruise missiles fly?

Because the potential downside of an attack against Syria is absolutely massive.  As I wrote about the other day, if we attack Syria we have the potential of starting World War 3 in the Middle East.

We could find ourselves immersed in an endless war with Syria, Iran and Hezbollah which would be far more horrible than the Iraq war ever was.  It would essentially be a war with Shia Islam itself, and that would be a total nightmare.

If you are going to pick a fight with those guys, you better pack a lunch.  They fight dirty and they are absolutely relentless.  They will never forget and they will never, ever forgive.

A full-blown war with Syria, Iran and Hezbollah would be a fight to the death, and they would not hesitate to strike soft targets all over the United States.  I don’t think that most Americans have any conception of what that could possibly mean.

If the American people are going to stop this war, they need to do it now.  The following are 25 quotes about the coming war with Syria that every American should see…

1. Barack Obama, during an interview with Charlie Savage on December 20, 2007: “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”

2. Joe Biden, during a television interview in 2007: “The president has no constitutional authority … to take this nation to war … unless we’re attacked or unless there is proof we are about to be attacked.  And if he does, if he does, I would move to impeach him.”

3. U.S. Representative Ted Poe: “Mr. President, you must call Congress back from recess immediately to take a vote on a military strike on Syria. Assad may have crossed a red line but that does not give you the authority to redline the Constitution.”

4. U.S. Representative Kurt Schrader: “I see no convincing evidence that this is an imminent threat to the United States of America.”

5. U.S. Representative Barbara Lee: “While we understand that as commander-in-chief you have a constitutional obligation to protect our national interests from direct attack, Congress has the constitutional obligation and power to approve military force, even if the United States or its direct interests (such as its embassies) have not been attacked or threatened with an attack.”

6. The New York Times: “American officials said Wednesday there was no ‘smoking gun’ that directly links President Bashar al-Assad to the attack, and they tried to lower expectations about the public intelligence presentation.”

7. U.S. Senator Rand Paul: “The war in Syria has no clear national security connection to the United States and victory by either side will not necessarily bring in to power people friendly to the United States.”

8. U.S. Senator Tim Kaine: “I definitely believe there needs to be a vote.”

9. Donald Rumsfeld: “There really hasn’t been any indication from the administration as to what our national interest is with respect to this particular situation.”

10. Robert Fisk: “If Barack Obama decides to attack the Syrian regime, he has ensured – for the very first time in history – that the United States will be on the same side as al-Qa’ida.”

11. Former congressman Dennis Kucinich: “So what, we’re about to become al-Qaeda’s air force now?”
