ANOTHER HERO! This time, when a hero was needed again, unexpectedly … an Arab stepped forward again!

Israeli police officers carry the coffin of their colleague Zidan Saif, an Arab Druze who died after being shot during a terrorist attack in a Jerusalem synagogue.

By the thousands they streamed to Yanuh-Jat, Israelis of every description making their way on Wednesday to the remote northern Galilee district, where a fallen hero was to be buried with full honors. Israel’s president, Reuven Rivlin, was there to pay his respects; so were the minister of internal security and the nation’s top police commissioner. From around the country, hundreds of black-hatted haredi (“ultra-Orthodox”) Jews came on chartered buses, disembarking to join throngs of Arabic-speaking Druze in traditional white turbans, police officers in dress blues, and so many other mourners that even the roofs of nearby homes were crowded with onlookers.

They had come to bid farewell to Zidan Saif, the Druze police officer who was the first responder on the scene of Tuesday’s massacre at a synagogue in Jerusalem. Saif had put himself between the terrorists and the worshipers, taking a bullet in the head and dying of his wounds that night. Befitting a defender who had died in the line of duty, his coffin was draped with Israel’s flag, its blue Star of David prominently centered.

Like many of the Jewish state’s loyal sons and heroes, Saif wasn’t Jewish. That didn’t make him any less an Israeli, just as Israel’s sizeable Arab and non-Jewish minorities don’t make it any less the sovereign Jewish homeland. Nor did it diminish even slightly the honor and gratitude Israelis across the spectrum expressed for the slain officer. In his eulogy, Israel’s president extolled Saif as “one of the first guardians of Jerusalem.” A rabbi from the Jerusalem synagogue where the bloodbath had occurred told residents of the village he had come “simply to be with you and to cry with you,” and called the “devotion and the determination” of the 30-year-old patrolman “an example to us all.”

There have always been pessimists convinced that Israel’s multiethnic Jewish democracy is doomed to fail. For some, the horrific images from the Bnei Torah synagogue, where peaceful scholars were hacked to death as they prayed, their blood drenching phylacteries and turning prayer shawls crimson, only encourages such fatalism.

“The attack on the synagogue in Har Nof,” wrote commentator Joel Pollak, sends the message that “Jews and Arabs may not be able to live together easily even in the same country.” A New York Times analysis was bleakly headlined: “In Jerusalem’s ‘War of Neighbors,’ the Differences Are Not Negotiable.”

For all the savagery of the terrorism that has sent so many innocents over the years to early graves, though, the funeral of Saif is poignant evidence that peaceful coexistence is not only possible in the Jewish state, it’s a daily reality, woven into the warp and woof of Israeli life.

Of course there are tensions, disputes, and resentments, just as there are in every imperfect democracy – and what democracy isn’t imperfect? Yet Israel from the outset has risen to the challenge of building a society held together by centripetal forces stronger than the centrifugal differences pushing it apart. Indeed, the Jewish state’s declaration of independence, proclaimed by David Ben Gurion in May 1948, explicitly implored the country’s non-Jewish inhabitants to remain “and participate in the building-up of the state on the basis of full and equal citizenship.” A great number did remain – including many thousands of Arab Druze – and went on to share in the blessings of Israeli freedom, democracy, and equality.

It’s still a work in progress, but largely a successful one. The small Jewish state with the notable Arab minority not only survives but thrives, the implacability of its worst enemies and the violent instability of its neighborhood notwithstanding. Yes, terrorism is a grim plague. Yes, the toxic Palestinian political culture that incites it is growing worse. All the same, Israel manages to stand out as an oasis of pluralism, respect, and tolerance in a part of the world not known for those qualities.

One of the strongest condemnations of the synagogue slaughter came from – of all people – Bahrain’s foreign minister, who blasted the “killing [of] innocents in a house of prayer.” Khalid bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa warned sharply that “those who will pay the price for the crime of killing innocents in a Jewish synagogue and for welcoming the crime are the Palestinian people.”

It was startling to see such strong language from a senior Arab official, especially when many Palestinian officials were “welcoming the crime,” quite exuberantly and openly. But as journalist Evelyn Gordon pointed out in Commentary, pragmatic Arab governments like Bahrain’s know quite well that at a time when Muslims are being butchered and abused by fanatics across the Middle East, “mosques in Israel and the West Bank – including Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa mosque – remain among the safest places in the Mideast for Muslims to pray.”

That’s no small achievement, even if the world does take it for granted. Terrorists may have killed Zidan Saif, but his memory will be a lasting blessing, for Jews and non-Jews alike.  Reblogged from Arutz Sheva.

NEUTER THEM! GIVE THE POWER BACK!


This comes from “Truth Revolt”; it makes sense, … if you hear it out.

In effect, pointing out this exposes the reason things got fouled up, something the left and the right ought to be able to agree on!   There was a reason our forefathers set up our government the way they did.  It should never have been changed … put it back!

  • This explains it, with historical facts.
  • It does it with logical reasoning!
  • It does it with the same persuasiveness that political and Constitutional scholar, (and talk show host), Mark Levin does almost daily.

It neuters the dangerously growing, centralized power of a potentially oppressive government.

The only problem with this is … it requires people to put aside some of their preconceived notions, and partisanship to look at what happened, … and more importantly why! It shows what the change did … and it requires us to think objectively and to consider the opposition’s argument … what a novel idea!

The way to go about it is to repeal the 17th Amendment.  Here’s why!

End oligarchy!

OBAMA: The BLACK CHARLES MANSON!


It’s all coming to fruition … right before our eyes!  Watch closely!

Charles Manson

Charles Manson

Manson’s back in the news – (he’s getting married to some young, insane bimbo) … and it’s no coincidence that the same week Obama met w/ the Ferguson protestors, telling them to “STAY THE COURSE”… looking to fulfill Manson’s dream of a Race War in America?

All this wouldn’t be believable, if it were a movie script, but Manson’s dream is becoming real, and if it goes as planned, with tatesebringthe help of Obama’s Muslim brethren, it could spread all across America …

There’s also the Amnesty issue approaching critical mass, but … none of this matters, not really … not in the long run!

Obama elated - a hole in 6!

Obama elated – a hole in 6!

Once again, all this is the stage-magician saying “watch this hand” while he and his minions manipulate things behind the scene, into position w/ his unseen hand.

This is the SLIDE INTO ARMAGEDDON, folks!

He’s allowing / negotiating with IRAN behind the scenes!  He may not be the ‘anti-Christ’, but he’s sure ‘setting the stage!’

Of course this is what comes later ....

Of course this is what comes later ….

Once Iran is allowed to become a Nuclear Nation, … it’s a whole new ballgame and there’s no going back!

Every one of the 204 terrorist groups will be clamoring to be the one to take Nukes into Great Britain and the US!

The only remaining question now, is: How will he be remembered?

  • The Ebola President?
  • The Abortion President?
  • The baby killer?
  • The magician?

IT’S NOT OBAMA; IT’S YOU & I!


Suppose you saw a person driving his car on the wrong side of a highway, against the traffic. Would you call him a stupid and/or incompetent driver?

What are his intentions?  If the driver’s intentions are to cause highway calamity, one can hardly call his actions stupid or incompetent.  Given his intentions, he is wisely acting in a manner to achieve his objectives.

Thomas SowellThis observation lies at the heart of my colleague Dr. Thomas Sowell’s column last week, in which he says, “Pundits who depict Obama as a weak, lame duck president may be greatly misjudging him, as they have so often in the past.”

After suffering an elective trouncing at the polls, President Barack Obama issued Congress an ultimatum, saying that if it doesn’t enact the kind of immigration law that he would like, he will unilaterally issue an executive order to change the nation’s immigration laws. This threat, along with other abuses of his office, is not a sign of presidential stupidity or incompetence.

Obama is doing precisely what he promised during his 2008 presidential campaign, to cheering and mesmerized crowds:  “We are going to fundamentally change America” and “We will change America. We will change the world.”

Obama is living up to those pledges by subverting our Constitution and adopting the political style of a banana republic dictator. He showed his willingness to ignore the Constitution when he eliminated the work requirement in welfare reform laws enacted during the Clinton administration. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, was enacted by Congress and hence is the law of the land. Obama has used executive orders to change the law on several occasions. Ask yourself whether our Constitution permits the president to unilaterally change a law enacted by Congress. For a president to do so is for him to behave like a banana republic dictator.

As Sowell says, “people who are increasingly questioning Barack Obama’s competence are continuing to ignore the alternative possibility that his fundamental values and imperatives are different from theirs.”

The recent elections, which gave Republicans control of both houses of Congress, clearly indicate a repudiation of much of Obama’s agenda.

But the question is whether the Republican majority has the courage to act on that repudiation and stop the president from running roughshod over the Constitution.

Because Article 1 of the Constitution grants Congress the power of the purse, there is not much a president can do without a budget appropriation. The question is whether Congress has the guts to exercise its power.

We can rightfully condemn the president for picking and choosing which laws of the land he will obey and which he won’t, in violation of the Constitution’s Article 2, …

Seeing as all branches of federal government ignore most of the provisions of the Constitution, I think we can safely say that we’ve reached the post-Constitution stage of our history. Washington politicians are not to blame. It’s the American people who’ve lost their love and respect for our Constitution. Washington’s politicians are simply the agents for that contempt.

GUTLESS AMERICAN POLITICIANS INVITE DISASTERS


450px-Air_Berlin_B737-700_Dreamliner_D-ABBNFrom Israel comes a news item which should alert all Americans that our politicians are failing us … and that they’ll continue to do so, until they have no choice but to react to an existing tragedy which could have been prevented!

The threat of portable-weapon air attacks has grown considerably over the last few years.  Israeli politicians have taken appropriate action, badly showing up American politicians!

Israeli airlines are now in the process of equipping aircraft with defense systems that protect them from shoulder launched, ground to air, heat-seeking missiles.

We, on the other hand, have our heads in the sand!  Technological achievement though outstanding, politicians have proven once again that they are living in a not-so-parallel-universe where decisions are made at a twice-burned, reluctant, snail’s pace – not necessarily one that corresponds to reality of today’s global threats!

Once an American airline company takes action and follows in Israel’s footsteps regarding this issue,( if it proceeds such a disaster) they’ll have an undying loyalty from its customer base!

According to the Israeli company installing this system, the’ll integrate advanced fiber laser technology together with a high rate thermal camera and a small, highly dynamic mirror turret to provide effective, reliable and affordable protection to all types of aircraft and under all operational conditions.

The initial detection of incoming threats is provided by a missile warning system.   When a threatening missile is detected, the warning is passed to the DIRCM which then directs a thermal tracker to acquire and track the threat.  A powerful laser beam is then fired accurately at the missile causing it to be deflected away from the aircraft.

And American airline companies?  Where are they now that our politicians continue to fail to uphold their sworn duties – to protect and defend?   They’re doing so by continuing to fail to secure our borders!

Israel’s State Comptroller investigated this issue back in 2011, asking why Israeli passenger planes haven’t been equipped with missile defense systems – - -  Seven years ago, pilots working for the three Israeli airlines warned the then-Minister of Transportation Shaul Mofaz that the situation is a prescription for a “Fiasco”.

Back in November 2002, terrorists tried to bring down an Arkia airline plane as it took off from Mombasa Airport. Their rockets missed, however, and the disaster was averted.

And America?   We continue to … stand and watch …

MICHAEL BROWN — DECLARED A “THUG”


… or so said the consensus of the U.N. committee … the one his parents (McSpadden and Brown Sr.) had run to …

NEW UPDATE

2014.08.12-06.38-tellmenow-53ea5f290ce9e-600x563-300x180This photo and his actions that night, belie the parent’s claim that he was a polite, law-abiding, and gentle young man.

The parents had gone to the UN, and were calling for the immediate arrest of the officer who shot their son carrying out his sworn duty.   The UN dismissed the couple’s plea (entirely).

Though racists (both) President Obama and Atty Gen. Holder championed this same cause, Dr. Amancio Dominguez of the UN committee stated : “The sense of entitlement these people have displayed is reprehensible.   It is, in our opinion, after reviewing all the evidence that the officer in question committed absolutely (No Wrong Doing).”

He continued, “While I feel for loss endured by these two individuals, I believe they are blinded by grief and this is simply not the forum which to project those feeling.  My colleagues and I went over the surveillance footage, as well as other evidence documented in the case, and we believe that Michael Brown is indeed guilty of the acts of which he is being charged.”

Another stated: I also feel badly that these parents lost a child but they are extremely misguided in their indoctrination of victim thinking. What they seem to forget is that their child committed a robbery while high on Pot (not legal in Missouri) and then attacked a Police Officer.  We have rules in America no matter what your skin color.  He disobeyed the law and he of course didn’t want to pay for the consequences of his poor choices. I can only surmise what he would be on trial for today if he had gotten Officer Wilson’s gun away from him in the struggle inside the police car and shot Officer Wilson with it.

How could his parents take the moral high ground fighting for justice for lawless acts of immoral abuse, assault and robbery not only to the police officer but the shop owner with impunity?

The UN saw through the Brown’s masquerade fiasco of injustice from the PD of Ferguson.  I just hope they’re prepared to pick up the exorbitant tab from the destruction they perpetrated for months on: the Police Dept., the innocent people’s lives and property of Ferguson and surrounding cities and the loss-of-income from shop owners trying to do business there.

In conclusion, one must realize that there are racists attempting to ‘stir the pot’ at every opportunity and that was exposed here, just as with the Grayson case – in which the same racists (Obama, Wharton, and Holder) were at work!

a83af182d029c72b640f6a7067007da3_c0-71-3454-2084_s561x327If we ever expect sanity to return and fairness to rule, the Senate MUST reject the President’s current nominee, Loretta Lynch,  for Holder’s replacement!

ANOTHER HEALTH CARE “BLACK HOLE”


The FDA is the agency whose duty it has has been to approve or reject drugs, but to do so only after blind clinical trials and peer reviewed studies.

There’re obvious reasons alcohol, marijuana and all other drugs need to go through this FDA process.

Instead, as if the general public has the rationale to comprehend all this, now a disturbing trend to allow drugs by voter initiatives has begun … legalization by voter referendum – about as irresponsible a system as could be imagined!

Mass individual tragedies are predicted for these states who’ve authorized even  quasi- legalization.

Yet also, needed to be considered, is once states have approved a drug for medical use, …

  • there would be dosages to somehow set, especially difficult with multiple growers
  • each plant with different properties
  • there’s also reactions to ingredients to consider, and then
  • the appropriate purpose(s) for which use of each drug would be allowed.

Plus, … any and all side effects would have to be listed, and in the end, … even the producers of such drugs could/should be held liable for any and all harm caused.

But, … we seem to be returning to the days of “Snake-Oil” salesmanship, where people are deceived and made to believe they’re being responsibly treated!

But doctors are by-in-large not dumb.   In one state noted for recently passing such a law, only 11 doctors out of thousands have “recommended” use of marijuana for “medical” use for tens of thousands of ‘users’.

An extremely rare few legislators would have the kind of expertise needed to approve drugs and there is virtually no one in the general population …

These above issues have been not just overlooked, but have been intentionally hidden from the voters in the 26 states which have foolishly authorized “legalization.”

What this means for employers and the legal ramifications of allowing these drugs in the workplace has also been a head-in-the-sand mentality. Plus, these doctor’s malpractice insurance is sure to impact all physicians …

Talk of unintended consequences run amok!

OBAMA – The VIDEO SUPPOSEDLY PROMOTING THE NEW WORLD ORDER?


An edited video this year, intentionally twisted the words of President Obama; there’s no doubt of that.  What is somewhat ironic, is that folks pay attention to or bother twisting a narcissistic liar’s speech.., his actions speak much louder than words, eschewing the plethora of incidents involving his enchantment with his own voice, I personally am led to watch the left hand, so to speak

It seemed to espouse that he is perverting what America had, and is promoting the subversion of American sovereignty … promoting the NEW WORLD ORDER which many believe would bring equal slavery for everyone in the entire world …

My readers know that I’m no supporter of his, that I totally distrust him and the corruption and partisanship in D.C., but let me state … He is, at least, saying the right things here.

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2014/jun/23/chain-email/video-barack-obama-speech-circulating-internet-was/

Below, was what he was purported to have said.   It’s clear this video was malicious …

Yet his and Gruber’s comments, ‘no matter how they try to walk them back’ are contemptuous of Americans and though the twisted video seemed to fit my view of him, what matters as always, is “THE TRUTH”!

Here’s what one of our most intelligent commentators, Charles Krauthammer, said recently

“Now we know what lay behind Obama’s smooth reassurances — the arrogance of an academic liberalism, so perfectly embodied in the Gruber Confession, that rules in the name of a citizenry it mocks, disdains and deliberately, contemptuously deceives.

President Obama got his law degree from Harvard in 1991.  Jonathan Gruber got his economics Ph.D. from Harvard in 1992 (his undergraduate degree is from MIT, where he was Phi Beta Kappa).

One is tempted to ask how people so smart (… or at least highly credentialed) can be so stupid, but as someone who spent the years 1990 to 1994 at Harvard myself, I totally remember and understand the arrogance and am grateful for the knowledge gained then that having a degree from a fancy university is no indication of either wisdom or character.”

In closing, I still believe President Obama is still deceptive and  only ‘mouths‘ the right sentiments … and that his arrogant actions are not motivated by a correct, righteous altruism.

If I’m correct, where does that leave us?  I can only surmise that Obama is a symptom … a product of decades and decades of power-hungry-corrupt, self-centered politicians and unfortunately, he’s become the worst of the lot and his ultimate goal still is the intentional destruction of all that was once pure and good.   May God save our great nation!

TWISTING OUR FLAG …


The always offensive, radical feminist, pro-abortion group, NARAL, tweeted this twisted image for Veteran’s Day of the American flag …

Twisting Sacrifice.

Twisting Sacrifice.

Instead of flying high above our nation’s capital or standing strong amidst a battlefield, the image showed an American flag that had it’s stars replaced by birth control pills.

Someone needs to explain to them: “Our Soldiers Did Not Fight and Die Over Birth Control.  It was about freedom!”

Alison Howard, Communications Director for Concerned Women for America, did.

Howard’s tweet caught the attention of conservative radio host Dana Loesch. To hear what Loesch had to say on her radio show about the tweet, click HERE.

Time To BURN THE EXTREMELY NARCISSISTIC PROGRESSIVES In Effigy!


Despite having the weakest of grasps pertaining to just what it took to build this great nation and what it takes to maintain on so many levels, we know that progressives harbor the summary belief that they ought to run everything.  (They are so conceited they think it’s for our own good.)  I wouldn’t be first person to make the observation that progressives are also narcissistic in the extreme, as well as often being cases of arrested emotional development.  (Michael Savage, appropriately calls it a mental condition.)

Prof. Krauss

Prof. Krauss

Case in point:  Back in August, atheist scientist Lawrence M. Krauss asserted that religion could be essentially done away with in a generation if we simply changed how children were taught about faith and religious systems in schools.  For those familiar with the history of communism in America, this is probably old news – but here we are in 2014, with a prominent liberal scientist espousing the same manifesto component grubby East Coast Marxists were committing to coffee shop napkins back in the 1940s – before going on to become school system superintendents.

Carl Oglesby - former founder of SDS

Carl Oglesby – former founder of SDS

… as Carl Oglesby, former SDS co-founder suggested in his LEFT/RIGHT CONFERENCES back in the early 70′s.  Note the likeness ….

“[I]f we can plant the seeds of doubt in our children,” Krauss said, “religion will go away in a generation, or at least largely go away – and that’s what I think we have an obligation to do.

And if that doesn’t work, I suppose there’s always gunpoint – the route communist ascendency has always taken in the end.

So what is Lawrence Krauss’ field of expertise?  Religion?  Education?  Sociology?  Psychology?

Nope.  Theoretical physics.  So where does he get off pontificating on religion, education and sociology?  Well, he’s a progressive, of course – and with a Ph.D. in Physics from MIT, he’s practically a deity.

It was, of course, an imperative for liberals to convince Americans that they hold the intellectual high ground – meaning that they’re smarter than everyone else – for their designs to be successful.  Obviously, we would trust them more if we believed that they knew what they were doing.

Having relativized morality, they’ve also factored in the curious notion that they occupy the moral high ground.  This, as contradictory as it sounds, creates for them the moral imperative to behave amorally in order to achieve said ends.

They’ve been called “deranged,” too – and now you understand why.

Jonathan Gruber

Jonathan Gruber

The testimony of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber (another MIT professor, by the way) in a recent panel discussion has been getting some press lately.  In addition to having articulated that the “stupidity of the American voterwas instrumental in the effort to get Obamacare passed, his oratory was essentially the smoking gun for the administration having lied to the American people to get that blatantly socialist piece of legislation passed.

This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the [individual] mandate as taxes,” Gruber said.  “If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. OK, so it’s written to do that. … Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”

Gruber has since apologized for the indelicacy of his “stupid voters” gaffe, but not for his part in having perpetrated a massive fraud and calculatedly defecated all over the heretofore constitutionally protected rights of the American people.

What’s particularly disgusting about this is that we have a situation in this country where people in government feel perfectly comfortable lying about a blatant attempt to legislate away Americans’ rights in a wholesale manner, and then admitting to it four years later without fear of being dragged out onto the Capitol Mall and burned in a bonfire with their co-conspirators.

Many Americans are hopeful for what the new Republican majority in Congress may be able to accomplish toward stifling Obama’s agenda.   One thing we need to remember is that in the world of the liberal (progressive-socialist) politician, it is the electorate that is to be blamed, derided, even punished if they don’t see things “the right way.”  We’ve already seen this in the rhetoric of some of the losing Democratic candidates and their supporters.

This has serious potential implications with regard to this president, given his demonstrated deep psychological pathology.  In a very real sense, it may be more important now than it was before the election that congressional Republicans sincerely seek the truth in the case of such things as Benghazi, Fast and Furious and the IRS scandal.

I’ve said that the most significant aspect of the recent midterm election was that it demonstrated the dissatisfaction of the American people.  The problem lies in that they’re really not aware of what they’re dissatisfied with, at least not in terms of the root causes and conditions; these lie in the political culture that currently exists, rather than in the Obama administration itself.

While Obama and his cronies have been very successful at operating outside the realm of believability (in that so many remain unconvinced they’re really out to destroy America as we know it), I think that Americans are far more open to digesting the truth about them now than ever before.  Investigations into the plethora of scandals in which administration officials have been implicated are a logical first step.

This is the real lesson Americans at large need to learn, and would learn given such a scenario: that a system which could propel an utterly insubstantial, 6-foot-3 bowel extrudate with less in the way of accomplishments than most grade schoolers to the highest office in the land is a system that definitely needs a major overhaul.

LIVING IN FANTASYLAND — Michael Brown’s parents


The parents of Michael Brown, Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr., traveled to Geneva to address a U.N. committee Tuesday. (AP File Photo)

The parents of Michael Brown, Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr., traveled to Geneva to address a U.N. committee Tuesday. (AP File Photo)

By their actions and statements, surely they must … Right now, they’re in Geneva Switzerland.

Please see the updates.

Do you wonder who paid for the trip?   I sure do!  Obviously, someone with “deep pockets” wants this radicalism to continue.

Supposedly, the reason — they’re trying to tell the United-Nations-Committee-Against-Torture of the “excessive force” used by the Ferguson police against so-called “peaceful protestors”.

Huh?   From what I saw on the news (both the leftist mainstream media and Fox), … I’d call  “pretty good restraint”; wouldn’t you?

Even though they have to have seen the video by now, … the one of their son’s strong-arm robbery and his intimidation of the store’s clerk, Michael’s parents continue to describe him as a polite, peaceful young man.

By no stretch of the imagination can he be appropriately called either!  Robbery is not Polite nor peaceful!   By his aggressive intimidation, one may be able to call him young … but not by his size!  Maybe he was polite around his family, but most likely this giant of a young man wasn’t high when he was around them, … at least not like he was, that night.

ferguson-palestine-occupation-ap-450x337<—-  We now know that among the protestors are Pro-Palestinians as well as radicals from all over the U.S.

Obvious to me, his family has (if not previously) bought into the radical leftist / Hate-America-First philosophy.

TROOPS & RIOT POLICE STAND READY

From (CNSNews.com) – Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown, Sr. — the parents of a black teenager shot and killed by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer in August — say they were “received very well” by the United Nations Committee Against Torture.

“They’ve given us a lot of love and support since we’ve been here. And everything seems to be positive. It’s a — it’s a great experience,” McSpadden told CNN from Geneva, Switzerland on Tuesday.

Michael Brown, Sr. told CNN they went to the U.N. to explain “what’s going on in the United States and all over the world with the police, police brutality, no justice, just trying to get the eye opened up, attention to the situation that’s going on in St. Louis and all over America.”

Brown said his family is trying to figure out why Officer Darren Wilson was “playing the part of a judge, a prosecutor and an exeuter (sic) that day, that moment he interacted with our son. He had no right to address the law the way that he did to Michael Brown Jr., our son. And it’s a painful deal. We’re really lost with words on how to express ourself about it, because we’re trying to stay humble and not to be so upset to where — it’s a situation where I’m surprised we haven’t even lost our mind yet over this.”

As CNSNews.com reported, the Browns submitted a statement to the U.N. Committee, saying that the “intentional, arbitrary killing of Michael Brown, shot to death by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, amounts to torture under Article 1″ of the the U.N. Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment.

G. W.’s FAULT


Woman Shot In Her Own Driveway • • •Linda Burnett, 26, a resident of San Diego, was visiting her in-laws and after leaving there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries.

Later and back home now, her husband noticed her sitting in her car in the driveway with the windows rolled up and her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head.

He became concerned and walked out to the car. He noticed that Linda’s eyes were now open and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay and Linda replied that she had been shot in the back of the head and had been holding her brains in for over an hour.

The husband called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from her head.

When they finally got in, they found that Linda had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head.

A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head.

When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She initially passed out, but quickly recovered.

Linda is a blonde, a Democrat, and an Obama supporter, but that could all be a coincidence.

The defective biscuit canister was analyzed and forensics noted the expiration date was from  2008, so it was determined to be Bush’s fault.

WASHINGTON STATE’S MARIJUANA


They told us the black market for pot would disappear when recreational use began; they said the same thing about so-called “medical” marijuana.    As predicted, neither is true; in fact, more and more, (as the THC content increases) pot is seen as an integral part of violence.

Written by Detective Patrick Michaud on November 7, 2014 12:24 pm

A robber opened fire on a man in a Mount Baker park Thursday night after relieving him of two pounds of pot and marijuana-infused brownies.

Officers responded to calls of shots fired just after 8 PM in the 1400 block of Martin Luther King Way S., where the 38-year-old victim told police his mother had driven him to Sam Smith Park so he could sell the pot and brownies.

The victim met the suspect inside the park, where the suspect asked the victim to walk with him to a darker, more secluded area. The two men strolled through the park until the suspect pulled out a silver handgun and demanded the victim’s marijuana.  After grabbing the victim’s pot, the suspect fired two shots toward the victim, who ran back to his mother’s car, sped away, and called 911.

Officers searched the park and were able to find 10 shell casings, as well as brownies, scattered on the ground.

The victim described the suspect as a mid-20’s black male with a thin build and scruffy facial hair.

Robbery detectives are now investigating the case. If you have any information about this incident, please contact police at (206) 684-5535.

Depopulation agent discovered in UN tetanus vaccine


 

 

Give-Away needles for Needle Exchange Programs

It’s no wonder 3rd world nation peoples are suspicious of supposedly well-intentioned philanthropists and government programs; they’ve reason to be; this has been done before …

Kenya’s Catholic bishops are charging two United Nations organizations with sterilizing millions of girls and women under cover of an anti-tetanus inoculation program sponsored by the Kenyan government.

According to a statement released Tuesday by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, the organization has found an antigen that causes miscarriages in a vaccine being administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Priests throughout Kenya reportedly are advising their congregations to refuse the vaccine.

“We sent six samples from around Kenya to laboratories in South Africa. They tested positive for the HCG antigen,” Dr. Muhame Ngare of the Mercy Medical Centre in Nairobi told LifeSiteNews. “They were all laced with HCG.”

Dr. Ngare, spokesman for the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, stated in a bulletin released November 4, “This proved right our worst fears; that this WHO campaign is not about eradicating neonatal tetanus but a well-coordinated forceful population control mass sterilization exercise using a proven fertility regulating vaccine. This evidence was presented to the Ministry of Health before the third round of immunization but was ignored.”

But the government says the vaccine is safe. Health Minister James Macharia even told the BBC, “I would recommend my own daughter and wife to take it because I entirely 100% agree with it and have confidence it has no adverse health effects.” Oddly, his phrasing suggests neither has actually received the vaccine.

The WHO, of course, deny that the vaccines are laced with contraceptives.

Countering that, “then why”, they ask, “does it involve an unprecedented five shots (or “jabs” as they are known, in Kenya) over more than two years and why is it applied only to women of child-bearing years, and why is it not being conducted without the usual fanfare of government publicity?

But it’s the five-vaccination regime that‘s most alarming. “The only time tetanus vaccine has been given in five doses is when it is used as a carrier in fertility regulating vaccines laced with the pregnancy hormone, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) developed by WHO in 1992.”

It is HCG that has been found in all six samples sent to the University of Nairobi medical laboratory and another in South Africa. The bishops and doctors warn that injecting women with HCG , which mimics a natural hormone produced by pregnant women, causes them to develop antibodies against it. When they do get pregnant, and produce their own version of HCG, it triggers the production of antibodies that cause a miscarriage.

“We knew that the last time this vaccination with five injections has been used was in Mexico in 1993 and Nicaragua and the Philippines in 1994,” said Dr. Ngare. “It didn’t cause miscarriages till three years later,” which is why, he added, the counterclaims that women who got the vaccination recently and then got pregnant are meaningless.

Ngare said WHO tried to bring the same anti-fertility program into Kenya in the 1990s. “We alerted the government and it stopped the vaccination. But this time they haven’t done so.”

LifeSiteNews has obtained a UN report on an August 1992 meeting at its world headquarters in Geneva of 10 scientists from “Australia, Europe, India and the U.S.A” and 10 “women’s health advocates” from around the world, to discuss the use of “fertility regulating vaccines.” It describes the “anti-Human Chorionic Gonadotropin vaccine” as the most advanced.

(much of the above was written from an article by Steve Whetherbe for LifeSiteNews.com)

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation recently pledged ten billion dollars to help vaccinate children around the world.
March 8, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – When Microsoft co-founder and population-control advocate Bill Gates spoke recently of using vaccines to reduce world population, he set off a wave of speculation over his possible allusion to covert sterilization programs. According to the Gates Foundation, however, the multi-billionaire in fact advocates vaccine use to decrease child mortality – something he claims actually decreases population growth.
Gates’ comments occurred while he was speaking to a TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference on how humans might reduce their CO2 emissions in order to reduce global warming. “Until we get near to zero [carbon emissions]” he claimed, “the temperature will continue to rise” – which he said would lead to “extremely bad” consequences.

AMERICA’s FUTURE …


iran Amer bomb flagA dangerous time for the entire world, lies just ahead … why it’s talked of as “end times”.

In its current mode, it’s inconceivable that the US will take any aggressive action against Iran (note the link, just added).  It’s also likely the US will more than likely attempt to thwart any Israeli initiative.

Israel cannot allow that, and will attempt to take action alone; it’s imperative; they must!

The US will preach the importance of negotiations up until the proof of the first Iranian nuclear weapon – and assuming somehow that the Israelis are to be unsuccessful, the world be forced to live with the new reality of the rise of an even more virulent and violent Islam.

American society has lost its moorings and its moral foundations. The Old America is gone.  And, sad for the entire world, … it is not coming back.

America’s deterioration has been exacerbated in the last five years. America can no longer play “cops of the world.”  Evil will rise even more.

American society is permeated with sloth, greed, envy and materialistic excess.  The takers now outnumber the givers; that will only increase in years to come.

Unappreciative of the slow pace of redistribution, what lies ahead here, is years of unrest sparked by the loss of the American Dream and increasing discontent of the unsuccessful who want to seize the fruits and the bounty of the successful.

The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

There’s a more “spiritual” answer though; America walked away from GOD, His teachings, His blessing and His protection.   And the remnant … …

VOTE? WHY BOTHER?


To wrest the power from the corrupt – that’s why!untitled (13)

untitled (14)It was almost a century ago that it began.  On the night of November 15, 1917, thirty-three women stood in front of Woodrow Wilson’s White House, carrying signs asking for the right to vote.  These women were arrested and jailed by forty prison guards who waved clubs, choked, kicked, and beat them, and wrongly accused them of “obstructing sidewalk traffic.”  The right to vote was fought for, and even sacrificed and died for.

untitled (12)Suffragists_Parade_Down_Fifth_Avenue,_1917 (2)It all began before this but the names “Goodman, Schwerner, and Chaney” also live on in the more recent / 1/2 a century ago Civil Rights battle.

But now … vote by mail makes vote theft all the more likely! Voting by computer? Even more so!  Why do the Democrats want to make it so easy to rig the elections?

People died to give you that right.  Please don’t waste it.  Yes; you’re obligated to not only vote but to study the issues, know candidates and understand policies, yet today’s American voters are the most gullible, most apathetic in history!

But, back to the sacrifices …

They beat Lucy Burns and chained her hands to the cell bars above her head, leaving her bleeding and gasping for air as she hung all night. When one of the leaders, Alice Paul, went on a hunger strike, she was tied to a chair while prison guards forced a tube into her throat and poured liquid into her until she vomited (talk about ‘waterboarding’!) This torture continued for weeks. The fight for women’s suffrage continued until 1920 when American women were finally granted the right to vote, and that dark night in Washington went down in history as the “Night of Terror.”

These women were not beaten in the head, thrown into prison cells, and fed worm-infested slop for weeks so that we could apathetically sit in front of our computers and TV on Election Day.

How would these women feel if they saw their daughters, granddaughters, and great granddaughters keeping up with the Kardashians instead of taking the time to become politically aware?  All it takes is a little time – foregoing a little ‘so-called music’ and turning on a talk-show during your drive time / bus time.

Today is the 2014 Midterm Election. It’s time to stand up and be heard. We are praying that people like you don’t miss the chance to … wrest our nation from the hands of the wicked and corrupt!

They stuff their pockets full of our money and ensure jobs for themselves — time to clean SENATE!

A CHEAP AND ENCOURAGING LESSON


Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped  to chat as they returned home from walking their dog. During our friendly  conversation, I asked their 12-year old daughter what she wanted to be when she  grows up. She said she wanted to be President someday.

Both of her  parents – liberal Democrats – were standing there, so I asked her, “If you were  President what would be the first thing you would do?”
 
She replied, “I’d  give food and houses to all the homeless people.” Her parents beamed with  pride!
 
“Wow…what a worthy goal!” I said. “But you don’t have to wait  until you’re President to do that!” I told her.
  
“What   do you mean?” she replied.

So I told her, “You can come over to my house  and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I’ll pay you $50. Then you  can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house.”

She thought that  over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, “Why  doesn’t the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the  $50?”

I  said, “Welcome to the Republican Party.”

Her parents aren’t speaking to me any more.

WHICH PALESTINIANS ARE YOU TALKING OF?


Leftists support Palestinians no matter how they treat their women; the word “Freedom” may as well be of a foreign language.  So, just which Palestinians are you talking of?

Thousands of students who were seen celebrating on campuses across the U.S. on 9/11?  Or those who celebrated even by handing out candy in Gaza on the same day?

Or the Palestinians who, in 1948, fled their homes to neighboring countries when the Arab world attacked Israel and told the Palestinians they can return after Israel is destroyed?

Or the Palestinians who lived in the West Bank under Jordanian (then Transjordan) occupation and annexation when Jordan attacked Israel in 1967 and lost both the war and the West Bank to Israel?

Or the Palestinians who, while living in Jordan in the 1970s, envisioned Jordan becoming their Palestinian state and started a civil war where King Hussein ultimately killed thousands of Palestinians and forcibly removed many from of his country, making them refugees?

Or the Palestinians who entered the Olympic Village in Munich , Germany , and murdered 11 Israeli athletes?

Or the Palestinians who infiltrated a high school in Ma’alot, Israel , took 102 students hostage, injured 50 and murdered 22?

Or the Palestinians who were exiled from Jordan to a peaceful Lebanon and started a civil war that cost more than 120,000 lives and created more refugees, with many exiled from Lebanon?

Or the Palestinians who hijacked the Achille Lauro ocean liner and shot, murdered and threw overboard Leon Klinghoffer, a 69-year-old Jewish American paraplegic in a wheelchair?

Or the Palestinians in the Abu Nodal Organization who murdered an estimated 600 Palestinians from rival factions?

Or the Palestinians who wrote and live by the Hamas Charter that states, among other things, “… Israel will rise and will remain erect until Islam eliminates it as it had eliminated its predecessors”?

Or the Palestinians who enticed young and susceptible Palestinians to become suicide bombers with the promise that when they murder Israelis, they’ll receive rich rewards in the afterlife and financial security for their families?

Or the thousands of Palestinians in Ramallah who cheered as the bodies of two Israeli soldiers were thrown from a second story window after they were tortured and hacked to death?

Or the Palestinians who honored a suicide bomber with a military funeral for murdering 15 people (including seven children and five from one family) at the Sbarro pizza café in Jerusalem?

Or the Palestinian families who received $25,000 from Saddam Hussein for their children’s “successful” suicide bombings?

Or a Palestinian like Yasser Arafat (although he was Egyptian born), who became a billionaire by stealing money from other Palestinians as they lived in squalor?

Or the Qatari born and Egyptian-raised Omar Barghouti (who refers to himself as a Palestinian), who co-founded the boycott, divestment, and [including educational] sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel while getting his doctorate at an Israeli university?

Or the Palestinians from Hamas (a group the U.S. and other countries label a terroristOrganization) who, when they took control of Gaza , shot several hundred Fatah Palestinians in the legs, purposely crippling them for life?

Or the more than 100 Palestinians from Fatah crippled by Palestinians from Hamas who, at the confidential request from Mahmoud Abbas to Shimon Peres, received new legs and rehabilitation at a medical center in Israel?

Or the two Palestinians who proudly confessed to the knife attack and murder of five members of the Fogel family, including the father, mother, and three of their six children, ages 11, 4 and 3 months?

Or the Palestinian mother, Raida Abu-Mustaffa, whose baby’s life was saved through funding and a rare heart operation by a Jewish doctor at an Israeli hospital, yet the mother dreamed that her daughter would one day become a martyr?

Or the gay Palestinian man who, while living in Tel Aviv (considered one of the gay-friendliest cities in the world), pleaded with Israel’s high court not to be deported to the West Bank because it would lead to persecution by his family and his detention, torture and death by Palestinian security forces?

Or the Palestinians in the West Bank who, in 2013, committed 27 honor killings against their wives, sisters and daughters?

Or the Palestinians who, since childhood, have been educated by books and newspapers that claim Jews are sub-human, satanic and animals, and that Israel is the root of all of their problems?

Or the Palestinians who grew up in refugee camps while Saudi Arabia, Libya, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Kuwait and Brunei became some of the wealthiest countries in world, gave virtually nothing to help the Palestinians and have purposely kept them in refugee camps as political tools since 1948?

Or the Palestinians who, for decades, promoted terrorism against Israel forcing Israel to build a security wall (that virtually ended all suicide bombings) and now call it the Apartheid Wall?

Or the Palestinians who, after Israel voluntarily withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005, giving the Palestinians land and self-determination, have fired more than 11,000 rockets at Israel, killing Israelis and causing thousands of injuries?

Or the Palestinians who, since the Oslo Accords were signed in 1993, have committed thousands of terrorist acts (not including rocket attacks from Gaza ), murdering 1,472 Israelis?

Or the Palestinians from Hamas who kidnapped and murdered three Jewish teenage yeshiva (Torah study) students?

Or the Palestinians who denounced Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas because he condemned the kidnapping and murder of the three Jewish teens?

Or those Palestinians who board buses to become suicide bombers?

Or the Palestinian mother of Abu Aysha (one of the suspected murderers of the three Israeli teens) who said if he truly did it … “I’ll be proud of him till my final day. … I raised my children on the knees of the [Islamic] religion … their goal is to bring the victory of Islam”?

And you leftists want Israel to stop the bloodshed?  Forgive me if I say “I think you’re full of crap!”

A COWARD – CALLING NAMES


Younger men: Bibi and Barry

Younger men: Bibi and Barry

On May 8, 1972, while “Barry” Obama was soaking up the Hawaiian sun, Palestinian terrorists (who else?) hijacked Sabena flight 571 from Vienna to Tel Aviv. A plan was quickly devised to rescue the hostages utilizing Israeli Special Forces of the vaunted Sayeret Matkal.

Benjamin Netanyahu and his brother Yoni, both members, both volunteered for the operation and fiercely argued with each other over which one would participate. The final decision was left to Sayeret Matkal’s commander, Ehud Barak, who chose Bibi.

The commandos boarded the plane dressed as airline technicians and quickly overpowered and neutralized the terrorists while securing the hostages. Bibi was wounded during the assault and when home, carried off the tarmac was greeted by his brother who half-jokingly stated, “You see, I told you, you shouldn’t have gone.”  Yoni was tragically killed four years later while leading the successful “Raid on Entebbe” rescue mission.

Obama of course never served in the military and one could even say harbors disdain for our servicemen and women.  While Benjamin Netanyahu was charging terrorists and freeing hostages, Obama was busy smoking marijuana and attending prep school.

The contrast between these two leaders, one fearless and self-sacrificing, the other perpetually narcissistic and self-absorbed, could not be greater, yet exposed this week is the verbal attack from our cowardly President’s Administration:  A senior member of Obama’s team recently said of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit.”

And this isn’t all.

He’s got no guts,” the official continued.

Further, Atlantic Magazine writer, Jeffrey Goldberg, has stated that over the years Obama administration officials have described the prime minister as “recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous and Aspergery.”

Can you believe this?  This isn’t how the office of the President of the United States talks about the leader of one of our greatest allies, or … it shouldn’t be!

Of course, Obama and his spin doctors are now backpedaling, claiming these are merely the words of a minor official and certainly do not reflect the feelings of President Obama, Secretaries Kerry or Hagel or anyone else high up in the Administration.  This story though, shows who the real chickenshit was, … still is … and who has class and who doesn’t; you decide who the real hero is!

POT / VIOLENCE CORRELATION


thumb_blunt_ap_photo1aPotheads defend their addiction by insisting that marijuana can make people lazy, dumb or hungry, but not violent.pot art 3

untitled (11)However, the case of Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the Canadian Islamic terrorist killer, proves otherwise — Zehaf-Bibeau was an Islamist, as well as a pothead.

In another notorious case of jihad, one of the Boston Marathon bombers, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was not only a dope smoker but a dealer.  It appears that Dzhokhar’s brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev was implicated in a Jewish triple murder case in which thousands of dollars’ worth of marijuana and money were left covering the bodies.  All three victims’ throats were slashed.

It may be too early to draw a direct connection between jihad, marijuana, and mass murder, but certainly it is worth considering whether consumption of the drug can alter the mind to such an extent that jihad becomes appealing to some mentally unstable individuals.

Clearly, a number of factors were at work in the case of the Tsarnaev brothers, (the Boston Marathon Bombers) who were born in the former Soviet Union and attended a mosque in the Boston area.

The older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was fascinated by the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a Russian forgery about a Jewish plot to take over the world. But their involvement in the marijuana business appears to have been very deep.

We also have the case of Michael Brown, the black thug who was shot and killed in Ferguson, Missouri. An autopsy and toxicology report finds that he had marijuana in his system and had been a user for some time.

There is no hint of jihad here, only anti-police violence, yet recent revelation of Palestinian involvement was revealed in the protests …

The role of marijuana in this violent confrontation deserves extensive coverage, not just a footnote. Trayvon Martin, the black juvenile delinquent shot and killed after he assaulted anti-crime activist George Zimmerman, also smoked marijuana regularly.

The latest White House fence-jumper, Dominic Adesanya, had a “substance abuse” problem as well. A clearly deranged individual, he told officials he smoked marijuana “sometimes, but not every day.”

Do we see a pattern here?

There are too many examples to list many here but a few other such cases involving marijuana and violence includes numerous school shooters (Columbine Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold). Jerad and Amanda Miller, who killed two cops; Maryland mall shooter Darion Aguilar; would-be Obama assassin Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez; Pentagon shooter John Patrick Bedell; killer student Jeff Weise; child killer Joseph Smith; and Vladimir Baptiste, a psychotic pot user who drove his truck through the headquarters of WMAR-TV in Towson, Maryland, Jared Lee Loughner … the list goes on and on!

Yet, our media keep insisting that marijuana is a harmless drug with beneficial medical properties, and that dopers aren’t aggressive people but …

A recent convert to Islam once known as Michael Joseph Hall, Canadian Islamic terrorist Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was charged with marijuana possession on at least two occasions. He was also charged at one time with possession of PCP, with side effects including hallucinations and delirium.

Canada’s Globe and Mail newspaper quotes a friend by the name of Dave Bathurst as saying Zehaf-Bibeau frequently talked about Shaytan in the world—“an Arabic term for devils and demons.”

Bathurst said he thought Zehaf-Bibveau was mentally ill, a distinct possibility because of his marijuana use. But the shooting rampage could have been a direct result of his interpretation of the Koran, the Muslim Holy book. Or perhaps, a combination of both factors.

Yet, the CBC reports that his neighbors said “they remember Zehaf-Bibeau as a sweet boy, and are in shock at the news.”

The transformation of a “sweet boy” into a maniac, psychotic, or jihadist killer can happen under the influence of a mind-altering substance like marijuana.

In the Michael Brown case, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has run a story saying his toxicology report found a level of THC, the main active ingredient in marijuana, at 12 nanograms per milliliter of blood. “Levels of inactive ingredients of the drug were also detected in Brown’s blood and urine,” the paper said.

In other words, Brown was a marijuana abuser, quite possibly an addict.

The paper confirmed this, saying, “Pathologists who read the toxicology report said Brown probably had used marijuana within a few hours of his death. There were also indications that Brown was a habitual user. An undisclosed amount of the drug was recovered from his body. A surveillance video taken the same day appears to show Brown stealing cigarillos from a convenience store. The tobacco in the flavored small cigars is known to be easily replaced with marijuana leaves, as shown in YouTube videos and in cannabis literature.”

Brown had stolen a box of Swisher Sweet cigars.

A Swisher Sweet cigar—a.k.a. (also known as) a cigarillo—that has been re-rolled with marijuana is called a “blunt.” High Times magazine has highlighted the seven best cigars or cigarillos to use, making it easier for thugs to know what brand to steal.

The paper noted that Brown’s active level of THC was more than twice what authorities in Colorado have set as the legal limit on marijuana in a driver’s bloodstream. Colorado sets that level at 5 nanograms per milliliter.

However, the paper went on to say that “While alcohol has a direct influence on violent behavior, marijuana does not increase the odds of any type of aggression, according to a study published this year in the journal Addictive Behaviors.”

This claim in the newspaper account is in dispute. The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute at the University of Washington says the evidence indicates that while marijuana usually has a sedating effect on most users, “sometimes when marijuana is used it can cause fear, anxiety, panic or paranoia, which can result in an aggressive outburst.”

The UPI wire service reports that a Dutch study on the effects of marijuana use on teenagers found “the higher the frequency and amount of marijuana use, the more aggressive behavior the teenager showed.”

However, the pro-marijuana movement is hoping that the public doesn’t draw a connection between marijuana and violence, and is counting on more legislative victories.

Amy Ronshausen, Interim Deputy Director of Save Our Society From Drugs, reports that “As Election Day approaches, several states are facing ballot initiatives to either legalize marijuana as so-called medicine or for recreational purposes.” These include:

But the potheads are well-funded. “Our movement to end prohibition is gaining momentum,” says the Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform. “Colorado and Washington have succeeded in passing measures that legalize cannabis.”

The group’s spokesperson is Dale Sky Jones, identified as “Executive Chancellor of Oaksterdam University.” Oaksterdam University, which calls itself “America’s first cannabis college,” teaches “students” how to grow dope. One of the instructors is known as “Miss Bliss,” and specializes in creating marijuana “edibles.”

In Colorado, where dope has been legalized, such edibles have resulted in a murder and a student jumping to his death.

Oaksterdam “college” even offers advice on rolling blunts using Michael Brown’s favorite Swisher Sweet cigars.

MONICA’S BACK . . .


lewinskymonica_102214getty_1Monica Lewinsky is back — and this time, she implies she has a “noble cause”, but just what is her cause and is it really ‘honorable’ this time?

She whines that, the bane of her existence, this “culture of humiliation” is immoral, yet what she did was newsworthy … if only because of who her ‘partner’ was.   It was adultery, which (in most circles) is still considered immoral.

She claims she is advocating to end “online bullying” but of course this speech, … her ‘call to action’ … once again, thrusts her into the spotlight, something … (being that woman) she complains she cannot get away from. She, was hired by “Vanity Fair” as a “contributor” … a way to get their name into print?

As she spoke from the Philadelphia podium, and drew a standing ovation, one must wonder — just who was it, … that stood!

Regarding her complaint of not being able to “outrun her past” … maybe she should take a lesson or two from Casey Anthony who seems to have dissolved into the woodwork…

RACISM IN FERGUSON – NO SURPRISE THERE, BUT IT’S NOT WHAT YOU’D EXPECT!


Ferguson, Mo. Is in a “state of siege” from hate-filled Black protestors who don’t want the truth of their hate, to reach the rest of the nation.  Though it’s obvious he’s (Masri) the most verbal, and threatening male there, did not reveal he is a Palestinian, … but his Facebook page does.

CNN reporter Sarah Sidener was on air in Ferguson, Missouri was disrupted on Monday night when supporters of Michael Brown surrounded her and her cameraman and demanded that they leave the area.

The video at Ferguson, shot by Bassem Masri a local activist, includes Masri and others accusing CNN of lying about the Michael Brown case and supporting “Zionists.”

According to his FaceBook page, Masri is a Chesterfield, Missouri resident and a pro-Palestinian political activist who also supports Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

In his blog talk radio profile he says:

Born in St Louis and raised here I lived in East Jerusalem in Palestine from 98-00 Al Quds Wad IL Jos neighborhood where my father is from. My mom is from Ramallah West Bank.

Sidener attempted to give a report in front of the Ferguson Police Department after CNN Anchor Don Lemon introduced the segment and tossed to Sidener, but the reporter could not talk over the protesters who screamed at her, calling CNN a “fake media” outlet.  Pro-Palestinian groups have been organizing in Ferguson since Brown’s death in August.

When it was apparent Sidener could not do her report, Lemon moved on to a guest interview segment. Masri continued to scream at CNN’s reporter as she spoke on her cell phone and communicated on her BlackBerry.

Emotions in Ferguson are particularly high since The New York Times published a piece recently reporting forensic tests have found the blood of Brown on the gun, uniform and police vehicle of Officer Darren Wilson.

Wilson fatally shot Brown, who was unarmed two months ago in Ferguson. The incident sparked a violent face off between protesters and local police immediately thereafter.

DEMONS, DUNGEONS ‘N DRAGONS


To determine our character, our worth … as we near the end, we’re challenged at every turn – asked questions … Got sand? Got knowledge, intellect?

I ask: Got a compass?  No; what is it then, which gives you direction?

330px-Kompas_SofiaA compass guides us only because there is a fixed point by which one may navigate. Is there a fixed point in your life?

Though it’s a starting point, for most, … seeking pleasure is a universal beginning, but it doesn’t last; it isn’t enough . . . We flounder as pleasure and possessions begin to become less meaningful …   We need something of substance to give meaning.

Geographically, that the world is round, makes it so we can see ahead, only for a relatively short distance.   Was that to be a ‘lesson’?

Looking ahead is difficult for most; my fixed point … allows me to ‘pen’ a glimpse into our future, which I’d long desired.  Reject this reasoning if you like, but it’s good and true.

Our lives are short. Inspiration of love, music, writings, art, buoy us but we’d be wise to spend our time passing through, finding purpose; it best not all come to naught.

Proverbs describe ‘wisdom as a lady.’ It portrays her as a mother-like teacher, showing us how … to navigate life.

As we grow old, hopefully, we find our way, but know … our regret’s ghosts – our failures, will haunt us. mental_patients_1a

RedDragonPray and plan wisely, … for beyond this place, where life ends… there be DEMONS, DUNGEONS and DRAGONS!

WHY ARE WE FEEDING & FUNDING ISIS?


1413813119830.cachedOut of the continuing Socialist chaos of the Obama run State Department comes another whistle-blower … reported by Jamie Dettmer of The Daily Beast,  exposing what was most likely intended to remain … out of sight.

GAZIANTEP, Turkey—While U.S. warplanes strike at the militants of the so-called Islamic State in both Syria and Iraq, truckloads of U.S. and Western aid has been flowing into territory controlled by the jihadists, assisting them to build their terror-inspiring “caliphate.”

The aid—mainly food and medical equipment—is meant for Syrians displaced from their hometowns, and for hungry civilians. It is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, European donors, and the United Nations. Whether it continues is now the subject of anguished debate among officials in Washington and European. The fear is that stopping aid would hurt innocent civilians and would be used for propaganda purposes by the militants, who would likely blame the West for added hardship.

The Bible says if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him something to drink—doing so will “heap burning coals” of shame on his head.

MY COMMENT: (This though, seems more like TREASON than corruption!)

But there is no evidence that the militants of the Islamic State, widely known as ISIS or ISIL, feel any sense of disgrace or indignity (and certainly not gratitude) receiving charity from their foes.

The convoys of “humanitarian aid” have to be approved by ISIS and you have to pay them: The bribes are disguised and itemized as transportation costs,” says an aid coordinator who spoke to The Daily Beast on the condition he not be identified in this article.

OBAMA’s NEW IDENTITY CRISIS


Mitt Romney was in Boston recently at a hospital event. He told the following story:

President Obama went to the bank to cash a check and he didn’t have his ID and the teller said, ‘You’ve got to prove who you are’.

He said ‘How should I do that?‘.

She said ‘The other day Phil Mickelson came in; he didn’t have his ID but he set up a little cup on the ground, took a golf ball, putted it right into the cup, so we knew it was Phil Mickelson. We cashed his check.’

And then Andre Agassi came in and he didn’t have his ID either. He put a little target on the wall, took a tennis ball and racquet, hit the ball into bull’s-eye of that target time and time again. We knew it was Andre Agassi so we cashed his check’.

And she said to him ‘Is there anything you can do to prove who you are?’

And Obama said ‘I don’t have a clue’.

And she said ‘Well; very good Mr. President; how do you want your money?  Small,  or large bills?’

THE EBOLA CZAR . . . Some Of What We didnt Know


Here’s the other shoe being dropped . . .

There were more links to $ being made with the new appointment of an “EBOLA CZAR”?  Imagine that . . .   Who woulda thought?

Reported by Elizabeth Harrington for AP , in the WASHINGTON FREE BEACON exposes more secret money deals and broken promises … (Oooops) … in that President Obama did promise “no lobbyists” would be in his administration, did he not?   Oh well …  Klain and his firm were paid $40,000 to lobby for ImClone for two weeks.   Oooopps!

Is there money to be made here?   Can you spell “Conflict of Interests?”

Ron Klain, the new Ebola czar once worked as a lobbyist for a prescription drug company that denied experimental drugs to dying cancer patients.    He will be in charge of the administration’s emergency response efforts to Ebola, despite having no medical or health care background whatsoever.   Remember; never waste a chrisis nor an opportunity!

Klain did lobby on behalf of a prescription drug company that was accused of withholding life-saving drugs from dying patients.   Ron Klain, a former adviser to former Vice President Al Gore, Vice President Joe Biden, and President Barack Obama, currently is president of Case Holdings and is general counsel to the investment firm Revolution LLC.

Klain is also a trustee for Third Way. Claiming to be the voice for the “vital center,” Third Way is a progressive think tank that advocates for immigration reform, and gun control. Third Way is also listed on the Democracy Alliance’s “Progressive Infrastructure Map.”

The map, which is detailed in a report by Politico’s Kenneth Vogel, includes organizations that are “politically active, progressive” and “strategically significant.”

The Democracy Alliance solicits contributions from liberal millionaires and billionaires and serves as a “pass through” between those donors and top liberal advocacy groups, including the Center for American Progress, Media Matters for America, and Democratic Super PAC Priorities USA.

Klain is also on the Board of Directors for the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

While working at O’Melveny & Myers after he left the Clinton administration, Klain helped ImClone push back on a congressional investigation into the company’s procedures for granting cancer patients experimental drugs.

The company only granted 30 so-called “compassionate use” supplies out of more than 10,000 requests, according to Politico. Klain and his team lobbied House members on the Oversight committee for ImClone before a hearing that featured family members of cancer patients who died while waiting for the company to grant them use of an experimental drug.

WMD’s — NOW IN THE HANDS OF ISIS


Wonder why the administration … (Congress too), won’t put “boots on the ground?”

My understanding is - they’d have to admit they knew all along WMD’s existed (military-intel-weblogs showed the caravan of thousands of 18-wheelers) loaded.

While we waited to begin the war, the WMD’s were ‘secreted’ into the Beqaa Valley in Syria.   That’s the bare truth, like it or not!

Below, (reblogged) is part of the transcript of David Horowitz’s speech at the Freedom Center’s Wednesday Morning Club event in Los Angeles on September 11, 2014.

 ~   ~   ~

“In 2003, the Democrats said the war was unnecessary because there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. But the war was about Saddam’s determination to acquire these weapons and his violation of 17 UN Security Council resolutions designed to prevent him from doing that.

And of course, there were weapons of mass destruction. But the Democrats have put the whole country in denial. So even when the evidence smacks them in the face, they still can’t see it.

A month or so ago, the big news story was that Isis had stumbled onto a chemical weapons storage plant in Iraq. The plant had been built by Saddam Hussein. The news anchors said that the chemical weapons were dangerous in ISIS’ hands. And they left it at that. What they failed to say was that the existence of this storage facility showed that there were weapons of mass destruction and that the Democrats had lied in order to sabotage America’s war against Saddam and the terrorists in Iraq.

Even Fox’s astute and admirable — I love this woman — Megyn Kelly managed, in the same program to feature the chemical weapons story and then, in a later segment, to accuse Dick Cheney of being wrong about Iraq because there were no weapons of mass destruction. Dick Cheney was right — there were.

This colossal misreading of the war in Iraq has had ominous consequences. If you want to understand why terrorists rule Iraq today, and the Middle East, it is the Democrats’ defection from the war in Iraq and their 10-year campaign to force America’s retreat from the war on terror.

Consider the consequences of the Democrats’ seditious campaign. Because they divided the country and set half of it against the war, America couldn’t follow Saddam’s generals and chemical weapons into Syria. Where do you think Bashar Assad got those chemical weapons, anyway?

Because of America’s impotence, Syria became a cauldron of terrorism, and Iran escaped unpunished for the IEDs that it had placed in Iraq and that killed and maimed the majority of American casualties. Perhaps we could’ve won the war on terror then, when it was manageable, if the Democrats had been on our side.

What the Republican silence did in the face of the Democrats’ betrayal was to allow the Democrats to turn that betrayal into a patriotic act and to stigmatize Republican support for a necessary war into unpatriotic warmongering.

This is why Republicans in the last two elections were unwilling to stand up for their country and why they lost the elections. They were afraid of being portrayed as reckless. To this day, no Republican has the spine to call for boots on the ground in Iraq, which is obviously necessary if ISIS is to be defeated. That is a direct consequence of the false picture of why the war in Iraq went bad.

This is the price you pay if you lose the political battle or throw in the towel before you begin. Republicans will not win the presidential election in 2016 unless they hold Democrats accountable for their years of degrading America’s military and leading America’s retreat.

Unprincipled and unscrupulous as they are, the Democrats will now try to position themselves at the head of the war against ISIS. Republicans should not let them get away with this. If it were not for the Democrats’ determination to turn their backs on the war, we would still have a massive military base in Iraq, with 20,000 troops in-country. Republicans should make this a political mantra and throw it in the Democrats’ faces every chance they get.

That would be a punch in the Democrats’ mouth. It was Mike Tyson who said: Everybody has a game plan until you punch them in the mouth.”

There’s more, much more and it’s basic wisdom from a man who, like me, has been on the other side … until I grew up!   Read the rest @ http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/frontpagemag-com/the-democrats-war-against-the-war-on-terror-and-the-battle-plan-for-defeating-the-left/?utm_source=FrontPage+Magazine&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=d383ddc4e9-Mailchimp_FrontPageMag&utm_term=0_57e32c1dad-d383ddc4e9-156539009

OBAMA’S EBOLA CZAR


REVISED:  See new article

Klain – Another political hack?   Possibly … probably … but relatively few negatives are apparent:

  1. Lobbyist efforts – Klain helped the scandalous Fannie Mae “situation” overcome “regulatory issues”
  2. He’s a Washington “insider

A) Klain and his wife, Monica Medina, an environmental activist, and special assistant to the Secretary of Defense live with their children, Hannah, Michael and Daniel in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

B) 1995, Senator Tom Daschle (well known for his instructions to Congress on how to “sneak pork, etc.” past the watchful public eye and involvement in “penning” Obamacare) appointed him the Staff Director of the Senate Democratic Leadership Committee.

C) Klain apparently signed off on President Obama’s support of a $535 million loan guarantee for now-defunct solar-panel company Solyndra, despite concerns about whether the company was viable.

Here’s a little more info, on Obama’s new Ebola Czar – from Wikipedia.com

Ronald A. “Ron” Klain is an American lawyer and political operative best known for serving as Chief of Staff to two Vice Presidents – Al Gore (1995–1999) and Joseph Biden (2009–2011).[1][2] He is an influential Democratic Party insider. Earlier in his career, he was a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Byron White during the Court’s 1987 and 1988 Terms and worked on Capitol Hill, where he was Chief Counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee during the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination. He was portrayed by Kevin Spacey in the HBO film Recount depicting the tumult of the 2000 presidential election. On October 17, 2014, President Obama named Klain the newly created “Ebola Czar”.[3][4]

He was born on August 8, 1961 in Indianapolis, He is a member of the DayBreak Boys Band and grew up in a Jewish home.[5] He graduated from North Central High School[6] in 1979 and was on the school’s Brain Game team, which finished as season runner-up. He graduated summa cum laude from Georgetown University in 1983. In 1987, he graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School,[6] where he was one of several to win the Sears Prize for the highest grade point average in 1984–85. While at Harvard Law School, Klain was also an editor of the Harvard Law Review.

Career — Capitol Hill

Klain’s early experience on Capitol Hill included serving as Legislative Director for U.S. Representative Ed Markey. From 1989 to 1992, he served as Chief Counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary, overseeing the legal staff’s work on matters of constitutional law, criminal law, antitrust law, and Supreme Court nominations.

Obama administration –

On November 12, 2008, Roll Call announced that Klain had been chosen to serve as Chief of Staff to Vice President Joe Biden, the same role he served for Gore.[9] Klain had worked with Biden previously, having served as counsel to the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary while Biden chaired that committee and assisted Biden’s speechwriting team during the 1988 presidential campaign.[10]

Klain was mentioned as a possible replacement for White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel,[11] but opted to leave the White House for a position in the private sector in January 2011.[2]

OBAMA STILL BLAMING OTHERS!


img518056‘Even when a British Muslim beheads a British Christian, there will always be those who blame the Jews,’ lamented Israel’s Economics Minister Naftali Bennett.

He was referring to Obama’s inept, foot-in-mouth Secretary of State John Kerry’s comments continuing to blame anyone other than his inept boss, Barach himself …  Our State Dept. has been controlled by leftist for decades.

This time, Kerry/Obama was blaming Israel for the rise if the ISLAMIC STATE (ISIS).  Kerry linked it to Israel’s refusal to accept the 2-State Solution.

Bennett also said that Kerry, as well as the West, does not take ISIS seriously. “I suggest they listen to and believe ISIS,” he said. “These terrorists want to take over the Middle East, from Syria to Jordan and Lebanon, and to re-establish the [historic] Islamic caliphate.”

Communications Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) also slammed Kerry for the statements Friday afternoon, saying to Kol Yisrael radio that it demonstrates a critical mass in the lack of understanding of the situation in the Middle East in general and of the nuances of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in particular.

Erdan also blamed US President Barack Obama himself for the move, saying that Obama, too, has confused regional tensions in the mushrooming Islamic holy war between Sunnis and Shi’ites – and with ISIS – with the specific realm of the Israeli-Arab conflict.

Losing the blame game

Kerry blamed Israel for the rise in global jihadism on Thursday, pointing the finger straight at Jerusalem – despite a long and seasoned history of Washington’s own failures in the Middle East.

EBOLA: WHY the PROPAGANDA?


Reblogged in Part: These following comments, caught my attention; they should catch yours, as well: “something besides the disease itself is driving this epidemic.”

At this point, I can only speculate as far as the answer to this question, but I believe it is one every American should be asking, because it suggests that something besides the disease itself is driving this epidemic.

Common sense dictates that since scientists and regulators working for the federal government quite literally wrote the book on Level 4 biocontainment protocols, they know how dangerous Ebola truly is. Thus, their refusal to prudently address the threat leads to one of two conclusions:

1. They have determined that political expedience trumps public health concerns, or

2. They want Ebola to spread in the United States.

Given how manifestly diabolical I know this president and his administration to be, I don’t doubt that the latter is a possibility. It certainly would fall within the scope of concerns some analysts have expressed pertaining to various escalating crises in America being orchestrated by the White House in order to ultimately “legitimize” a declaration of martial law in America.

Provoking comments!

Reading the context from which it was taken … it’s even more legitimate sounding – please read it yourself.

Then, carefully read: Matthew – note the warnings.

Re: Armageddon, ever wonder where the government is … the one which has been the driving force for good in the world … the U.S.?

LIBERALISM: A Mental Disorder


The foundation of secular LIBERALISM rests on the belief that A MORAL AMBIGUITY exists.  That’s their most pernicious (intentionally malevolent) lie – that there is no absolute morality.

They cannot explain where “EVIL” comes from, nor why some things ‘seem wrong’ to them, but denying there even is an absolute morality, is a major, integral part of their lacking, false belief system.

Their philosophy, tells them – “everything is acceptable; if it feels good, just do it.”   They believe man is basically good.

Yet, my presence, on-the-street, showing the violence of abortion, challenges that and they find they must react … their reacting itself, leaves them “unsettled.”

Often, they counter my sign by “condemning the violence of war” … as if it’s a legitimate correlation and justifies abortion.

I make sure at that same moment, they’re looking directly at my 3 foot by 4 foot graphic sign explicitly exposing the ‘violent aftermath’ of an abortion – bloody baby parts, detached arms, legs, decapitation!   I’m holding the sign up to them, pleading with them, … “look at ‘this’; please explain to me how doing ‘this’ to a defenseless baby, is OK.”

Doing so, (exhibiting this sign on a public street, in front of an abortion clinic) emotionally shakes many drivers-by.

The secular liberal’s contemporary culture’s neurotic condition compels them to react!

They honk … to confirm that I’ve seen they’re giving me the middle finger.   It makes them feel better to do so.   A few even circle the block, so they can shout something at me they wish they’d have thought of faster.

They’ve accepted a lie and being confronted that the foundation of their belief system is flawed … it’s the thorniest, most challenging issue they’ve faced.  They just don’t get it.

What lie, you ask?

The truth is that man is created in the image of God; his spirit discerns both evil and that man has “fallen” and cannot “get up” on his own!

The secular liberal’s entire belief system must be re-thought, if they don’t reject the concept above … it angers them, and that anger, they know … should not exist … not if their philosophy is coherently-competent.

That anger they’re feeling, confuses the moral high-ground they claim – yet they continue to deny that an absolute moral clarity even exists.

Their belief system, endeavors to present them as “peaceful, congenial people” …   It’s failed; right there on the spot, thus, their compelling need to react …

I’ve had violent reactions; I’ve been thrown to the ground, my signs ripped from my hands.   Sarah, a courageous, diminutive older lady has too.   She now ties her signs to her waist to try and keep others from ripping them from her hands, carrying them off to destroy them.

The Snare:

The liberal’s neurotic condition has left them with a severe desperate need for what I call: “the warm fuzzies” – this “TWF”, the need to experience that warm fuzzy feeling – it’s the only way they can continue to feel good about themselves.  Be prepared, as any truth that challenges their ability to remain deceived, must be eradicated.

Note: Admittedly, this compilation of philosophies is not my original idea – I must credit two individuals, Former president of Focus on the Family’s, Del Thackett Ph. D. and America’s #1 talk show host, Michael Savage Pd.D. with its origination.

NEW EBOLA CASE IN U.S.


Ebola_virus_emReported by England’s Sky News, “US health officials have been on heightened alert after a nurse in Texas contracted ebola while treating a dying patient.

Nina Pham’s case marked the first transmission of the deadly virus on American soil. She became ill while treating Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian national who succumbed to ebola on 8 October.

The 26-year-old nurse was wearing protective gear while in contact with Mr Duncan, officials said, prompting added concerns over how she contracted the virus.”

Mainstream media is … actually covering this issue.

Read: “The Hot Zone” by Richard Preston  untitled (10)

              QUESTIONS:

  • How many patients did nurse Pham infect?
  • Will Islamic Jihadist’s intentionally send Ebola-infected students to the US?
  • Why is our president and congress allowing our borders to remain porous?
  • Is existing protective gear  possibly inadequate?  
  • Has Ebola gone airborne?  
  • How long will it take to know, if it has gone airborne or if it has mutated again?

NEW STUDIES ON MARIJUANA


budFor decades, activists working to make dangerous drugs legal have been lying to the public – no surprise there, but years ago, they published their game plan.

They stated they were going to break down the public’s resistance to legalizing the use of all illegal drugs by starting with marijuana. Many thought that was no big deal, but meanwhile, users and growers have learned how to increase the THC content, making it much more potent … and increasingly dangerous, especially for youth.

First, they claimed the government did not allow the study of marijuana – a bold faced lie!

There are now tens of thousands of legitimate scientific studies showing the dangers, and the following information shows the studies continue.   The following studies are so new, I suspect they’re not easily available on the net but you’ll be able to find at least the “abstracts” in the listed professional journals.

Following, you’ll find listed 180 scientific studies published last month alone – Sept.

Legalizers also began emulating “big tobacco” before the link to cancer was proven — buying off some M.D’s to claim there is no harm in using marijuana. Some went so far as to fund their own bogus studies.

Those of us who have lost loved ones to the tragedy of drug use have been working to try and get the truth to the public. Our attempts by-in-large have been thwarted by the liberal press who continues to lie and hide the truth, downplaying the damage done, while promoting full legalization.

Some activists are well paid for their work by the mega wealthy who want to control the markets; some are simply hedonists who want to ‘enjoy’ the use of their drug-of-choice w/o the stigma of arrest.   Others are just simply evil!

Who will you believe?  People working to save lives … or those with a self-serving agenda?

PREPARE! ARM YOURSELVES


90143One of my favorite songs has a line: “And everywhere the good prepare for …PERPETUAL WAR.”   It strikes a chord in me for it is time to prepare yourself to protect yourselves … as well as those who will not.

Of the 75,000,000 Arabic speaking Muslims in America, 15 million “with student-visas” never showed up on campuses . . . parts of the missive below, were from a blog I read not long ago but cannot reference now.

If these (now) illegal aliens are here only seeking “the good life”, they’ve still lied on their application and should be found and held, until deported; to not do so is completely  irresponsible.

Otherwise, obviously, these illegal aliens, … they’re likely ‘sleeper cells’ waiting to attack our nation from within.

Let me tell you about Dr. Jim Garrow. He spent 45 years as a covert CIA operative in China, and was a 2009 Nobel Peace Prize nominee.

He’s responsible for exposing the military wide litmus test instituted by Obama’s administration in which officers were asked if they would follow orders to disarm the American people, and fire on those who resisted. Those officers who refused to agree were purged from the military.

This purge was so pervasive, it was even covered in the mainstream media. That, in and of itself, ought to be cause enough to Impeach Obama!

Naturally, Dr. Garrow maintains contacts within all branches of the military as well as the United States intelligence community, so when he chooses to disclose information, you can pretty much take it to the bank.

In the last couple of weeks, he’s been interviewed on several blog talk radio shows, as well as various alternative media sources, speaking about a planned attack upon multiple shopping malls inside America. He’s been told by several of his contacts that this attack will be modeled after the assault on the Western-style mall in Nairobi, Kenya back in September 2013.

If you remember, islamic militants seized control of that mall for two weeks, and killed over 150 people. They asked the hostages questions about islam or the koran and if they were able to answer correctly, they were allowed to leave. Those who couldn’t give the right answer were killed, and some were first tortured when it was discovered they were Christians.

He (Garrow) states that ISIS already has sleeper cells set up all over the country, and we’re welcoming more with open arms as they stream across our unguarded borders.

The plan, which is already in place, is to invade over 100 malls across the country simultaneously, using machine guns and grenades. The militants will also be wearing explosives and will set bombs in predetermined places within the malls, ready to kill first responders.

Just like Nairobi, they’ll have every entrance manned, with militants in the parking lots, ready to shoot anyone who might escape. In fact, Dr. Garrow states that the incident in Nairobi was the beta test for the attack here in America — a practice run, if you will.

Obama’s end game, of course, … is martial law and possibly internment camps.

As Obama’s pet, Chicago Mayor, Rahm Emmanuel famously said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”   We’d best pay attention!

When might this horrible event occur? Dr. Garrow and his sources don’t know, but they  surmised that 9/11 was/is an attractive target date. This year, as that date’s passed, another possibility would be Black Friday, when the malls are loaded with holiday shoppers but in reality, any old date will do.

It’s not only Matthew 7:24 warning us; it’s also 2 Timothy 3:1 which states: “This know also, that in the last days, perilous times shall come.”

I got my CCW a few weeks ago, but unless one has a weapon on one’s person at all times, it does good; my belief — carry 24/7; PRERARE & ARMOR UP!

And YES; Obama’s current military / armed agencies, WILL have to fire on me to get my gun; I’m not giving it up!   What part of the 2nd Amendment do others not understand?   It doesn’t matter; at some point we must stand up for what we believe and it doesn’t really matter whether they are Muslim terrorists or not.

POT vs ENVIRONMENT


Marijuana’s Anti-Environmentalists “RE-BLOGGED”

There’s no future for salmon in Northern California’s Emerald Triangle.

By Peter Hannaford – 10.9.14       American Spectator

On California’s northern coast are three counties that marijuana aficionados call the Emerald Triangle. In their view, the growers there have perfected a strain of cannabis that has high potency and consistently high quality. Result: There are many growers, most tending their crops in remote corners of these mountainous, heavily wooded counties.

This produces serious environmental damage. In Humboldt County where the largest amount of Emerald Triangle marijuana is grown, the sheriff’s office conducted an aerial survey and counted 4,000 visible outdoor grows, nearly all of them illegal. (California was the first of 22 states to permit medical use of marijuana, so some grows were established to serve users who have permit cards.)

The illegal grows are usually carved out of forest land (often national forests or acreage owned by timber companies). Typically, the growers clear-cut the trees on the land they want to use, then bulldoze it to their specifications. Next, they divert a nearby stream to provide the one to six gallons required daily by each plant. They then fertilize the plants, causing runoff. This is followed by a generous dose of rat poison.

The upshot: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service a week ago declared that stream diversion by marijuana plantations was robbing the rivers that the streams feed of enough cool water for Coho salmon to breed, thus threatening their survival. California’s north coast is big salmon country, for both sport and commercial fishing. The declaration earned banner headlines in the local press.

This week the USFWS said that it was considering seeking a “Threatened” status for the fisher, a native cousin to the weasel. Many fishers have been dying after ingesting the rat poison put out by marijuana planters.

Disruption of the soil for planting the crop and for cutting roads to some of the remote locations causes runoff that silts the area’s rivers—another preventable threat to the already endangered native salmon and steelhead.

In the area, a multi-agency task force has raided, on average, one marijuana plantation a week since January 2013. The biggest one, in August this year, yielded 10,000 plants; most have had several hundred. The plants are destroyed. The “harvest” often yields cash, weapons, and, sometimes other drugs (although multi-drug hauls tend to found in in-town dealer houses).

In addition to the cost of the raids, “grows” on public land require public resources to clean up and restore the affected area.

Environmentalists in the three counties are quick to run to the battlements and declare all-out war any time the state Transportation Department sets out to widen a highway. With the regular pot plantation raids, however, they are as silent as mice. Occasionally, one will opine in an interview that the problem would go away if marijuana were made legal. This outcome seems unlikely. Large companies might buy up some tracts for growing (along with getting the necessary permits and paying taxes); however, not every small grower will be able to compete; hence, the likelihood they would feed a black market, selling to heavy users at below-market prices. Thus, one problem would yield to another.

PHARMACEUTICALS & DEPRESSION


brain-1aReblogged – from my June 2011 blog.

One wonders why people resort to chemicals for depressions … pharmaceuticals which often cause more problems than the reason that brought  patients to the quick-fix R/X pills … one especially wonders, since they rarely work well.

Before I continue, there’s a cure for depression which I’ve never known to fail ….. that is …. except for … when I decide to wallow a bit longer in my own depression and I  don’t use it.  (There are times I need to “wallow” – to work through why I’m going through it.   It’s a conscience choice [self-discovery] I often, intentionally make.)    It’s the push to not have to do one more lap around Sinai, to put it into Christian terminology.

It’s never failed me!   Nor has it failed anyone I know, who uses it!

Doctors won’t lead you to this cure …..   Their education has taught them differently and their profession has them tied into the pharmaceutical companies so, … it’s natural for them to turn to one of the many anti-depressants .  

I’m not saying they never work, but, … if your doctor tries to get you to go that direction, … be sure to read the warnings:

For example, “we’re told to seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE SIDE EFFECTS occur when one takes “Abilify” – a pharmaceutical, advertised for depression.

Go through this list of side effects; few if any, are insignificant!   Of course they (should probably) list those first.

Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); abnormal thinking; chest pain; confusion; fainting; fast, slow, or irregular heartbeat; fever, chills, sore throat; increased sweating; involuntary movements of the tongue, face, mouth, jaw, arms, legs, or back (eg., chewing movements, puckering of mouth, puffing of cheeks); loss of control over urination; loss of coordination; muscle tremor, jerking, or stiffness; new or worsening mental or mood problems (eg, anxiety, depression, agitation, panic attacks, aggressiveness, impulsiveness, irritability, hostility, exaggerated feeling of well-being, inability to sit still); one-sided weakness; seizures; severe or persistent restlessness; shortness of breath; suicidal thoughts or attempts; swelling of the hands, ankles, or feet; symptoms of high blood sugar (eg, increased thirst, urination, or appetite; unusual weakness); trouble swallowing; trouble walking; unusual bruising; unusual tiredness or weakness; vision or speech changes.

Note the severity of many of the potential side effects of Abilify!   It’s just one of a number of chemicals which drug manufacturers have found which work on some of those suffering from depression.   (and, … depression is a side-effect of taking the Rx for depression?)

Often these drugs were developed for something else, yet have been found to work on a percentage of those in depression, but are the side effects worth it?   Suicidal thoughts or attempts?   Uncontrollable reactions?   HELLO?   That sound like a cure to you?   Want a real cure?

Now for the immediate cure for a periodic and intermittent problem I promised: “DEPRESSION!

I will qualify it now, … somewhat ….. you may think doing this is a deception (that I’m going to change what I said, but I’m not) but to use this cure, one must believe.

That I said “it has never failed, not for me, nor for anyone I’ve known … ever!”   That could be because everyone I’ve recommended this too has been a follower / believer that Yeshua HaMessiah (Jesus the Messiah) ….

In the Bible, it promises this works, but I cannot say it will work for you, not if you’re not a believer ….   But if you are a believer, I promise you it will work!

Scripture tells us to “Praise Him” when we’re depressed.   The translation may be different in different versions (one of the problems with converting the Hebrew language – an eastern mindset into English), but trust me; it works.   If you’re not a believer, take the step to become one!

It tells us to Praise Him in song …..   You can read it for yourself: Psalms 9: 9-12.   It does qualify it, and say “for those who know You,” referring to the Lord.

If you’re not a believer, it may be because you’ve never asked God to prove His existence to you.   Step I: ask Him sincerely, to prove to you He exists… . He will.   And He’ll do it in a way that will leave little doubt in your heart – but be aware, it (how He proves His existence to you) will probably mean nothing to others ….  They may very well think you’ve gone “over the edge” but if they love you, … because it works, they too will REJOICE!

And if you ask, … sincerely ask, He will prove it to you.   It may not be immediately, but He will do it and if you’re aware and open to His proving it to  you and you come to accept Him, you’ll never have to be depressed again!   Not ever …. that is unless you’re like me and sometimes need to experience the depth of emotions, and for some reason, decide consciously, to “wallow” for a bit.

When you chose to believe, and you again go into a depression, all you have to do is to begin singing praises of God.   With that, it’s impossible to stay depressed!

Now, if you’ve noticed, the Scripture I quoted came out of what Christians call the “Old Testament” or what Jews call the Tanach.   This works for the Jew as well, or I should say “it has”; but the Jew does not have to praise Yeshua / Jesus …..   The Jew, only need sing praises to the living God, our Father, the creator of the Universe.

However, …. please understand me that: Christianity is but a sect of Judaism!   (That may well explain why the Muslims hate Christians, … ya think?)   I’ll go into this in a later article, but all the original Christians (followers of Yeshua) were JEWS!   Every one of them!   Followers of Christ were meant to remain Jews!   Constantine came along and warped the church in the 4th century …. but that’s a 3rd article.   Stay tuned.

DRUGS FROM YOUR GARDEN


Today there are 100’s of distinct chemical miraculous substances derived from plants, important drugs currently in use around the world.

There are a myriad of examples:

  • foxglove3aFoxglove: was used to synthesize Digitalis, a pharmaceutical used for Cardiac problems.
  • Periwinkle, also known as Catharanthus roseus, produces several compounds with medicinal properties, including the anti-cancer drug vinblastine.

These pharmaceuticals are saving lives, but the consequences of simply using the plants themselves, as drugs, would be stupid and possibly fatal.

Those working to legalize marijuana would have you believe differently – that it’s safe … that’s propaganda.

  • Part of proper use of safe drugs, is determining what an appropriate dosage is.
  • Re: marijuana, more important, are the over 30,000 actual comprehensive, legitimate, scientific studies performed by those studying the efficacy of marijuana, not the “agenda-driven” studies funded by legalizers … all of which show pot causes harm.

The FDA was created to insure safety; it evolved originally to thwart the “snakeoil salesmen” who sold dangerous, addictive drugs yet claimed magical cures for their feel-good concoctions.

Nowadays however, instead of waiting for the drugs to be synthesized, a cabal of wealthy, unethical political folks saw an opportunity to make money by controlling the legalization and development of dangerous drugs.

Researching it all, is time consuming, but if one does, one can discover another version of how this has evolved and run so amok.   One can even “follow-the-money” and see who is to blame.

Recent, credible studies have verified that marijuana use impairs critical cognitive functions, both during acute intoxication and for days after use, as reported in an article by medical doctors at the National Institute on Drug Abuse published in the New England Journal of Medicine in June 2014.

The title of the article is “Adverse Health Effects of Marijuana Use“;  many other harmful health effects are reported in the article.

Washington and Colorado’s circumventing the protections provided by our FDA via using the ballot initiative, is sentencing our youth to a system of control that has damaged societies and the people in them since time began.

Some marijuana is over 10-20 times more powerful than it was in the 60’s & early 70’s, the ramifications of which, will probably take decades to become fully apparent.

I ask you, “what have we done to our children?”

EPIDEMICS IN AMERICA – The Beginning Of Sorrows


Along with those fleeing Africa, as did 42 yr. old Thomas E. Duncan, in hindsight it seems obvious, he was seeking medical help FOR Ebola, and of course, more immigrants seeking to live, will follow, sure to bring more disease and pestilence.

Duncan changed flights in Brussels (a 7 hr. Layover), and Washington, D.C., (a 3 hr. Layover).   All this was AFTER he and a neighbor carried his landlord’s daughter who had become sick and collapsed, to a hospital, in Liberia.   Reports are that, other than Mr. Duncan, all who came in contact with her, have already died!

Obviously future immigrants will bring Ebola as well as more chikungunya which is already here – chikungunya, though also is “not airborne, as yet” is already known to spread via mosquito bites.   See article of doctor protesting the CDC.

Decades ago, AIDS (suspected by some, to be spread by mosquito bites (because of the large number of AIDS cases, especially in mosquito-infested habitats like Belle Glade, Fl.) has broken down the immune systems of many, setting the stage for large epidemics / pandemics.

aedisegyptiNow, “epidemiologists are worried that mosquitoes in Florida may have picked up the diseases by biting infected people, which could kick off an epidemic in the state”, Tabachnick said.

The threat is greater than I’ve seen in my lifetime,” said Tabachnick, who has worked in the field for 30 years.

All this ought to bring pause . . .

Here is Christ’s warning, predicted for End Times – - in Matthew 24:7-14.

“For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences (note: it’s plural), and earthquakes in various places.

All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.

And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.

Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.

And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”

USING “TERROR” AGAINST ISLAM


Pershing

WHAT allah DEMANDS


Taking us for idiots, our president and other leaders continue to tell us the Islamic State is not Islamic.

It’s obvious that the Koran, their holy book, instructs differently: “When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks.”

Islamic civilization is not a historical anomaly in its sanction of decapitation. The Roman Empire beheaded citizens (such as the Christian Saint Paul) while they crucified noncitizens (such as Jesus Christ). French revolutionaries employed the guillotine to decapitate opponents. Nevertheless, Islam is the only major world religion today that is cited by both state and non-state actors to legitimize beheadings. And two major aspects of decapitation in an Islamic context should be noted: first, the practice has both Qur’anic and historical sanction. It is not the product of a fabricated tradition.  Second, in contradiction to the assertions of apologists, both Muslim and non-Muslim, these beheadings are not simply a brutal method of drawing attention to the Islamist political agenda and weakening opponents’ will to fight.  Zarqawi and other Islamists who practice decapitation believe that God has ordained them to obliterate their enemies in this manner.

Islam is, for this determined minority of Muslims, anything but a “religion of peace.” It is, rather, a religion of the sword with the blade forever at the throat of the unbeliever.   But . . . http://www.meforum.org/713/beheading-in-the-name-of-islam

Timothy Furnish is assistant professor of history at Georgia Perimeter College in Atlanta.

There is more to the Islamist passion for decapitation than psychological warfare and a hunger for notoriety.  There is also Muslim theology and history, and a mandate going back to the Koran.  In a 2005 study published in Middle East Quarterly, historian Timothy Furnish quotes the famous passage at Sura 47:4: “When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks.” For centuries, Furnish observes, “leading Islamic scholars have interpreted this verse literally,” and examples abound throughout Islamic history.

Yet Western leaders keep insisting that the beheading of “infidels” is unrelated to the jihadists’ religious outlook.

Last week, after British aid worker David Haines became the third Western hostage to be decapitated by Islamic State, Britain’s immigration minister, James Brokenshire, made a point of going to a mosque in London to declare that the “atrocious” beheadings “have nothing to do with Islam.” At an international emergency conference in Paris the same day, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius likewise insisted that neither Islamic State nor its “throat-cutters” were “representative of Islam.”

President Obama repeatedly makes the same assertion. When he outlined new military steps against Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) in a televised address this month, he avowed categorically: “ISIL is not Islamic.”

Alas, ISIL disagrees. And so do the radicalized Western Muslims flocking to the Middle East to join its brutal jihad, many of them stimulated by propaganda videos that feature the beheading of “unbelievers.” To millions of moderate and peaceable Muslims the world over, beheadings in the name of Islam may seem a terrible defilement of the religion they love. To a fanatical Islamist minority, they are just what Allah demands.

It may take a long while to destroy that enemy, but surely the first step is to call it what it is.

HOLDER’S LEGACY: NOT JUST RACISM


eric_holder_oped--300x300

“REBLOGGED”: FROM: FRONTPAGE.COM

Attorney General Eric Holder is at long last relinquishing his cabinet post after nearly six unprecedented, catastrophic years of racial demagoguery and gangsterism.

Holder, who announced yesterday that he will leave office when a replacement is selected, will leave behind what is probably the most ugly and toxic legacy of any attorney general ever in the history of the republic.

Although he has all the moral authority of disbarred Duke Lacrosse prosecutor Mike Nifong, Holder knows he is immune to criticism because he is black and a radical leftist. He is a protected, pampered member of the ruling class and his arrogance knows no bounds. He ignores court orders and gives congressional overseers the finger.

Holder has transformed the U.S. Department of Justice into a racial grievance incubator, an intensive care unit for kooky, authoritarian ideas that should have died after the 1960s. The DoJ, especially its rotten, totally corrupt Civil Rights Division, is a lawyerly commune for revolutionaries who oppose the very idea of the rule of law. Critical Legal Theory and Critical Race Theory govern much of what goes on in the department.

It is no exaggeration to say that Holder leaves death and destruction behind after saturation-bombing the Constitution, orchestrating criminal activity in order to whip up public support for policy changes, fomenting racial tension and violence, persecuting political opponents and disfavored industries, obstructing justice, and enforcing laws arbitrarily and capriciously and in a manner calculated to benefit his friends and allies.

It was all too predictable. Holder was the official assigned to vet President Bill Clinton’s 176 last-minute pardons in January 2001. Among those pardoned were former Weather Underground members Susan Rosenberg and Linda Evans. He was deeply involved in Clinton’s pardons of fugitive financier Marc Rich and Puerto Rican terrorists. Holder is an archetype, a living, breathing embodiment of American political corruption.

“The news that Holder is going to resign should be bittersweet to anyone who cares about racial equality and the rule of law,” says Injustice author J. Christian Adams, a lawyer who used to work at the DoJ.

“The damage he has already done to the country leaves a turbulent wake that is ill-matched to the financial reward awaiting him at a shameless and large Washington, D.C., law firm. Our country is more polarized and more racially divided because of Eric Holder. He turned the power of the Justice Department into a racially motivated turnout machine for the Democratic Party. That was his job in this administration, and he did it well.”

Holder’s time in office “represents the beginnings of a post-Constitutional era, where the chief law enforcement officer of the United States serves to dismantle legal traditions,” according to Adams.

“Holder is the first attorney general to whom law seemed to be an option, a suggestion on the way to a progressive future. Most folks, and most lawyers, who didn’t devote daily attention to him might not have noticed the ground shifting during his tenure. But shift it did, and very deliberately.”

Activism, as opposed to enforcing the law, is the proper role of the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, according to Holder. “Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job,” he pontificated earlier this year.

Holder is about race, race, and race. It’s what gets him up in the morning. His sick fixation on skin color is notable even in an administration jam-packed with racial obsessives and identity politics-driven Marxists. He brands those who oppose him as racists. This is usually enough to shut up most Republican lawmakers.

Holder has called America “essentially a nation of cowards,” because most Americans don’t share his radical left-wing multiculturalist views on race.

“We, average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race. It is an issue we have never been at ease with and, given our nation’s history, this is in some ways understandable…. This nation has still not come to grips with its racial past … ”

So America remains a deeply racist nation, just as biased against blacks as it was in the Jim Crow era, as Holder sees it. Government-mandated racism such as affirmative action programs and other special treatment for minorities is desperately needed, in his view.

As attorney general, Holder refused to prosecute the New Black Panther Party members who openly brandished weapons at a Philadelphia polling station in 2008 in order to intimidate white voters. He also refused to enforce electoral integrity laws and ferociously opposes voter ID laws because he alleges they discriminate against minorities. He supports affirmative action programs, which by definition, of course, are racist because they discriminate against white Americans. He stood behind the egregious “Pigford” settlement, a vote-buying scheme that handed out government cash to black farmers whether or not they suffered discrimination at the hands of federal agriculture officials.

Justice isn’t blind with Holder. It has rose-colored eyeglasses.

Under Holder, the Department of Justice sent taxpayer-paid community organizers down to Sanford, Florida, to generate mobs to agitate against the so-called white Hispanic, George Zimmerman, since-acquitted of the murder of black juvenile delinquent Trayvon Martin. The agency has done the same thing in the case of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old black man shot dead after accosting a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.

Of course, Holder is the first black U.S. attorney general, a fact he loves to repeat over and over again in speeches and media interviews, as if his race were a bona fide job qualification.

But he is also the first U.S. attorney general in memory to openly declare that he works only to protect the interests of what he calls “my people,” or those who share his skin color. White Americans with civil rights complaints are not a priority in Holder’s Justice Department.

Holder possesses an off-putting combination of creepy self-righteousness, cockiness, hatred of country, and racist contempt for white Americans that makes him the darling of the activist Left and the mainstream media that refuses to report on his many, many misdeeds.

Holder is not We The People’s lawyer. He is a talented political fixer who would be perfectly at home in Al Capone’s Chicago. He serves as a personal consigliere, or mob lawyer, to President Obama, the highest elected gangster in the land. And he will never double-cross the capo di tutti capi. He will bend and twist any statute into pretzels, torture any legal precedent into obedience, and strong-arm anyone who gets in his way.

Holder is the legal ringleader for today’s Democrats and their culture of corruption. After being held in criminal contempt of Congress in June 2012 –the first such citation against a sitting attorney general in American history– he is just a few steps away from being impeached in the House of Representatives and tried in the Senate for the high crimes and misdemeanors he has committed against the American people.

A formal impeachment resolution, H.Res. 411 accuses Holder of wrongdoing in connection with his involvement in the Fast and Furious scandal (that reportedly left hundreds of Mexicans and a U.S. border patrolman dead), refusing to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, refusing to prosecute IRS officials who leaked confidential GOP donor tax information, and providing misleading testimony to Congress about whether he approved invasive investigative tactics against reporters like James Rosen of Fox News.

This morally bankrupt racketeer ought to spend the rest of his life in prison. Probably nothing will happen to him. Rumor around Washington has it that President Obama wants to put Holder on the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, Holder ally and professional racial huckster Al Sharpton boasts that he is playing a significant role in selecting Holder’s successor.

He says his so-called civil rights group, the tax-evading National Action Network, is “engaged in immediate conversations” with the Obama White House as officials consider a replacement for Holder.

Sharpton drooled over Holder, calling him the “best” attorney general ever on civil rights-related issues.

“The resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder is met with both pride and disappointment by the Civil Rights community,” said the Jew-hating man who orchestrated the Tawana Brawley rape hoax years ago.

“We are proud that he has been the best Attorney General on Civil Rights in U.S. history and disappointed because he leaves at a critical time when we need his continued diligence most.”

The fact that racial arsonist Sharpton holds Holder in such high regard speaks volumes.

 Matthew Vadum is an award-winning investigative reporter and the author of the book, “Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts Are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers.”

“F**k YOU Dr. EMANUEL: WHY WAIT? YOU FIRST!”


330px-Zeke_Emanuel_AmherstThe reason for my foul mouth? Ezekiel Emanuel, M.D., Ph.D. would sentence me to a LIVING HELL and “terminate” millions of others, more women than men, of course.

In his Atlantic article, he admits his family thinks he’s crazy;  I think they’re simply “precise”!

Is this just another Obamacare surprise? … No; it was just another lie when they fearfully, vehemently denied this, a few years back!

I suspect the “good doctorsecretly hates his sister, or maybe his parents? … but it’s his sister, Gabrielle, who has Cerebral Palsy; it’s her life that’s possibly brought such grief to his family …

I’m 73, and when my meds end, I have a terrifying future.   I have ALS and the drug Riluzole is keeping the progression of my disease moving very slowly, at least it is, … for now. He thinks that continuing medicine for me, would cost too much …

I’m fully aware that what’s ahead for me, … it’s possibly a Living Hell.

Dr. Emanuel’s an American bioethicist[1] and fellow at the Center for American Progress; he recently said that “75 is a good age to die”.   I reply to that: “F**k you, Dr. Emanuel: Why wait?   You first!”

I searched the web to find out what age University of Pennsylvania’s professor is now.  From what I found, depending on his birthday, most likely, he’s 57.

As Emanuel co-wrote Obamacare and recently said:

“At $2 trillion per year, the U.S. health-care system suffers much more from inefficiency than lack of funds. The system wastes money on administration, unnecessary tests and marginal medicines that cost a lot for little health benefit. It also provides strong financial incentives to preserve such inefficiency.”

http://www.theatlantic.com/features/archive/2014/09/why-i-hope-to-die-at-75/379329/

Dr. Emanuel is the brother of now Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel; knowing that, it’s impossible to believe the previous denials, issued by the Administration, were not intentional lies, just like: “If you like your plan …!” debacle.

I present to you, for your consideration – - – Dr. Emanuel – an unethical Bioethicist. Maybe he laid awake at night, too long as a boy and it was struggling with the ethics of the Nazi doctors’ experimentations, and that’s what drove him NUTS!

NOTE: Dr. Emanuel reveals a lot of his misgivings in his article, but even more-so he reveals his all-too-apparent shortcomings. He admits that by 75 yrs. of age he will have loved and been loved – - – in other words, it’s not happened – not so far!   That doesn’t surprise me at all; he has a lot in common with our Commander-in-Chief.

Obviously, the “good doctor” has entirely missed the purpose of life itself!

THE WAR ON POVERTY: 50 years of failure


This year marks the 50th anniversary of the launch of the War on Poverty. Since President Johnson proclaimed his unconditional war on poverty, taxpayers have spent roughly $22 trillion dollars, which, adjusted for inflation, is three times the cost of all military wars since the American Revolution!

  • Last year, the government spent $943 billion providing cash, food, housing, and medical care to poor and low-income Americans.
  • More than 100 million people, or one-third of the population, receive some type of welfare at an average cost of $9,000 per recipient.
  • Yet, as of 2013, 14.5 percent of Americans were poor, the same rate of poverty as in 1967
