Iron Dome firing

Israel is using missile defense to protect its civilians and Hamas is using their civilians to protect their missiles.


‘Here’s the difference between us,” explains the Israeli prime minister. ‘We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.”

Rarely does international politics present a moment of such moral clarity. Yet we routinely hear this Israel-Gaza fighting described as a morally equivalent “cycle of violence.” This is absurd. What possible interest can Israel have in cross-border fighting? Everyone knows Hamas set off this mini-war. And everyone knows Hamas’ proudly self-declared raison d’etre: the eradication of Israel and its Jews.

Apologists for Hamas attribute the bloodlust to the Israeli occupation and blockade. Occupation? There is not a soldier, not a settler, not a single Israeli in Gaza. Does no one remember anything? It was less than 10 years ago that worldwide television showed the Israeli army pulling diehard settlers off synagogue roofs in Gaza as Israel uprooted it settlements, expelled its citizens, withdrew its military and turned every inch of Gaza over to the Palestinians.

There was no blockade. On the contrary. Israel wanted this new Palestinian state to succeed. To help the Gaza economy, Israel gave the Palestinians its 3,000 greenhouses that had produced fruit and flowers for export. It opened border crossings and encouraged commerce.

The whole idea was to establish the model for two states living peacefully and productively side by side. No one seems to remember that simultaneous with the Gaza withdrawal, Israel dismantled four smaller settlements in the northern West Bank as a clear signal of Israel’s desire to leave the West Bank too and thus achieve an amicable two-state solution.

And how did the Gaza Palestinians react to being granted by the Israelis what no previous ruler, neither Egyptian, nor British, nor Turkish, had ever given them – an independent territory? First, they demolished the greenhouses. Then they elected Hamas. Then, instead of building a state with its attendant political and economic institutions, they spent the better part of a decade turning Gaza into a massive military base, brimming with terror weapons, to make ceaseless war on Israel.

Where are the roads and rail, the industry and infrastructure of the new Palestinian state? Nowhere. Instead, they built mile upon mile of underground tunnels to hide their weapons and, when the going gets tough, their military commanders. They spent millions importing and producing rockets, launchers, mortars, small arms, even drones. They deliberately placed them in schools, hospitals, mosques and private homes to better expose their own civilians. And from which they fire rockets at Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

Why? The rockets can’t even inflict serious damage, being almost uniformly intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system. Even West Bank leader Mahmoud Abbas has asked: “What are you trying to achieve by sending rockets?”

In a world of such Kafkaesque ethical inversions, Hamas’ depravity begins to make sense.

It makes no sense. Unless you understand, as a Washington Post editorial explained, that the whole point is to draw Israeli counterfire.

This produces dead Palestinians for international television. Which is why Hamas perversely urges its own people not to seek safety when Israel drops leaflets warning of an imminent attack.

To deliberately wage war so that your own people can be telegenically killed is indeed moral and tactical insanity. But it rests on a very rational premise: Given the Orwellian state of the world’s treatment of Israel (see: the U.N.’s grotesque Human Rights Council), fueled by a mix of classic anti-Semitism, near-total historical ignorance and reflexive sympathy for the ostensible Third World underdog, these eruptions featuring Palestinian casualties ultimately undermine support for Israel’s legitimacy and right to self-defense.

In a world of such Kafkaesque ethical inversions, Hamas’ depravity begins to make sense. This is a world in which the Munich massacre is a movie and the murder of Klinghoffer is an opera – both deeply sympathetic to the killers. This is a world in which the U.N. ignores humanity’s worst war criminals while incessantly condemning Israel, a state warred upon for 66 years which nonetheless goes to extraordinary lengths to avoid harming the very innocents its enemies use as shields.

It’s to the Israelis’ credit that amid all this madness they haven’t lost their moral scruples. Or their nerve. Those outside the region have the minimum obligation, therefore, to expose the madness and speak the truth. Rarely has it been so blindingly clear.

Are they intentional, or unintended?   As a “newsaholic” for the last two + decades, I believe they’re intentional and they’re life threatening.

The extent of this massive threat will not fully manifest itself until this coming school year as ill, illegal-alien children are huddled together in closed environments (classrooms) all across America.   Your children will be bringing new unseen diseases home – diseases which have historically wiped out entire cultures (i.e. in Europe during the Bubonic Plague, and Native American populations during our expansion into the west.)

As you’ll hear in this video, FEMA is preparing for 200,000,000 casualties!   These children are being “shipped” to cities across America rather than segregated / isolated / quarantined!

This NEW INFORMATION is reblogged from Michael Reagan:

Since its inception in 1948 Israel — our ally and the only democracy in the Middle East — has been proving the experts wrong.

The latest expert comeuppance concerns “asymmetrical warfare.” This is a buzzword for guerrilla warfare and describes what happens when a weaker or more primitive combatant takes on a 21st century foe. The theory was that the weaker opponent will use what appears to be technically unsophisticated weapons and tactics that will find the chink in the technologically musclebound foe’s armor.

In Israel’s case, the thousands of home-made rockets fired at civilians by Hezbollah, Hamas, and other Arab terrorists were supposed to be so formidable that Israel’s military options would be severely limited, lest it risk devastating consequences for civilians under a rain of rocket fire.

Except none of that turned out to be true.

The game changer for Israel is what you would expect from a technologically sophisticated and free nation: the Iron Dome defense system. Iron Dome was first employed to prevent missile attacks during Operation Pillar of Defense in 2012.

The system successfully intercepted 84 percent of the rockets launched at cities and other civilian areas.

This year the system is functioning even more efficiently. So far it has intercepted about 90 percent of the rockets fired by terrorists. Now this doesn’t mean every rocket fired is intercepted. The system only responds to attacks that are likely to hit civilians. As of yesterday 180 rockets had been fired and the Iron Dome was activated in 27 percent of the attacks.

Israel currently has seven Iron Dome batteries installed in areas where the danger of attack is greatest. And rockets aren’t the only threat Iron Dome can counter. It will also intercept artillery shells and mortar rounds fired from distances of up to 45 miles.

Now you may be wondering why Israel, which faces a threat from conventional rockets, has such a system and the United States, which is vulnerable to nuclear missiles, does not. The answer is fairly simple: Israel is not afflicted with leftwing fanatics who put scoring political points ahead of the well-being of the nation.

Work was started on such a system here during my father’s administration. He thought it was immoral that the nuclear policy of our country rested on threatening to immolate millions of Russians or Chinese if the enemy immolated millions of U.S. citizens.

Ronald Reagan didn’t think meekly accepting the potential murder of most of the nation was a morally justifiable defense policy. So he directed the Pentagon to begin work on a missile defense system.

Democrats were outraged. They ridiculed the project and called it “Star Wars.” Their experts said such a system was impossible. It was “like hitting a rock with a rock.” The learned pooh-poohed the concept, pontificating about “boost-phase,” window of opportunity, MIRVs, destabilization and the like.

It would be hard to find a weapon with a shorter boost-phase than a mortar round, yet Iron Dome does just fine.

So 26 years after my father left office, thanks to Democrats, the U.S. still doesn’t have a working missile defense installed, yet Israel does and it was built in only eight years. Fortunately, the U.S. has contributed to financing Iron Dome, so we are part owners of a system that’s located halfway around the world from us.

Maybe if we suffer an attack, they will let us borrow it.

My comment:

We WILL be attacked … until then, we need only worry about the plans of this “domestic terrorist” president …

Every year the kindergartens of Gaza graduate a new class of children dressed like terrorists and suicide bombers.  There are celebratory child- sized coffins decorated with the flags of Islamic terrorist groups and colorful balloons.

A teacher explained that, “In every year’s kindergarten graduation ceremonies we focus on the children to represent the role of struggling and resistance in the way of Allah.”

One child spoke of wanting to blow himself and kill the most Jews.  The article boasted that the children were “hoping to be volunteers in the future.”al-qaeda children

Some don’t wait that long.

Abdullah Quran was only twelve years old when he was found with a bomb in his bag, but the indoctrination of children begins much earlier.  Children’s magazines and television shows encourage them to kill and die using everything from songs to costumed characters. On “Pioneers of Tomorrow“, the children are urged to grow up to kill Jews.  “All of them?” a little girl is prompted.  “Yes” is her reply.

Hamas does not just turn children into killers; it also uses them as human shields. Hamas has encouraged Gaza families to act as human shields. It was caught launching rockets near a school.

The Hamas Interior Minister had said that:  “For the Palestinian people, death has become an industry… This is why they have formed human shields of the women, the children, the elderly, and the mujahideen.”

This is the insanity of Islam.   They teach their children from the beginning to hate and kill!

Above, came from Arutz Sheva.

Below, is . . .

My Opinion:  Islam needs to be totally eradicated; it is pure EVIL!   Read the Qu’ran!

  • Our leftist press supports the Palestinians.
  • The Palestinians freely elected Hamas!
  • Hamas is supplied by Iran
  • Obama is “negotiating” with Iran
  • Our government gives Billion$ of our tax money, to Hamas, even though it’s against the law to support terrorism – Obama’s administration regularly breaks the law!
  • Our government pressures Israel to give up more “Land for Peace” even though that has clearly failed, the president’s Secy. Of State (the traitor of Vietnam) pushes them to do it over and over, encouraging more Rockets, more war!
  • This, is your president at work!  Talking out of both sides of his mouth!
  • And the American people?   They wait with anticipation, for every Saturday’s professional gladiator games . . . and the gladiators?   They demand more money to distract the people … not because they know they’re part of the deception / detraction, but because they’re getting hurt and finding out that their concussions have a longer-lasting impact than they knew!

Parents living in Sderot need to constantly ask themselves this dreaded question: if there is an incoming rocket and my kids are in separate parts of the house, how do I get all of them to the bomb shelter in 15 seconds?

The question became very real for Tami Jorno two weeks ago. With her husband away at work, the ode red siren went off. She has 15 seconds to get herself and her two children to safety. She scooped up her 5-year old daughter who was next to her in the kitchen and ran. Her 4-year-old son was in the living room. With no time to spare, she yelled at him to run. Although Sderot children are taught from a young age to run to bomb shelters during sirens, Tami says her children often do not hear the siren when they watch television.

The boy heard his mother’s call and ran to the shelter. Just in the nick of time. A rocket scored a direct hit on their home, destroying everything except the protected room that sheltered Tami and her two kids.  Life-in-Sderot230x150

This occurred recently, in July 2014. But Sderot has been experiencing it for over a decade. Since 2005, Sderot has been the target of over 9000 rockets.

In this latest round of fighting, most of Israel has experienced what it’s like to live under the threat of rockets. Sderot, yet again, has been the most unfortunate. A factory and the Jornos’ home have been destroyed.

The people of Sderot have seen the situation slowly escalate over the years. Hamas has slowly increased its attacks, and the rockets are now reaching further densely populated cities in the North.

Naom Bedein of the Sderot Media Center has been documenting the rocket fire in Sderot since November 2006. He has witnessed Sderot becoming what he calls “the bomb shelter capital of the world,” with 6000 bomb shelters having been erected.

While the shelters have been life savers, Sderot residents say they are not the solution. Its proximity to Gaza makes it non-protectable by the Iron Dome missile defense system it. As a result, Hamas’ most devastating hits have been in Sderot.

On June 28, Saturday evening at 8 pm, the Denber Paint and Coating factory in Sderot was hit and destroyed. The rockets produced flames that burnt down the factory.

Nobody was present at the factory that night. According to Denber’s owner, Baruch Kogan, two workers in the neighboring factory were injured in the process of running for shelter in the dark.

Kogan, a father of three and grandfather of five, lives in Rishon LeTzion, a suburb of Tel Aviv. He says he moved his factory to Sderot from Ofakim, because a majority of his workers lived in Sderot. Despite the threat to his investment, he is already rebuilding the factory in Sderot. “We are rebuilding and we are staying here. We are not afraid of the missiles, and we are not going anywhere.”

The resilience of the people of Sderot is a source of pride, as much as their fear is a source of pain. Each of them fights back in their own way.

All want quiet restored permanently. “Every time Israel performed this kind of operation, we got quiet for a few years, and then they shoot again,” said Kogan. “We hope that this operation in Gaza will finish it for good.”

In this last round of terrorism, two Israelis have been killed—one elderly lady in Haifa while seeking shelter, and one volunteer on the Gaza border. Israelis are optimistic and resilient. They are staying safe, taking precautions, but managing to go about their daily lives.

At the same time, Hamas’ rocket range is increasing, and their frequency shows no signs of slowing down. While the Iron Dome system and shelters protect life (with the Almighty’s help), they do not vanquish fear, anxiety, or trauma. Moreover, Israelis fear it is a matter of time before a rocket pierces through the nation’s defenses.

On Tuesday, Israel agreed to an Egyptian moderated cease-fire. Hamas did not, and hundreds of rockets continue to fly in to Israeli territory.

Kogan told that he considers the cease fire idea a “joke.” He believes “you cannot make an agreement with murderers.”

Israelis, especially residents of the South, are looking for answers and yearning for peace.

The first Cease-Fire failed. It wasn’t a real Cease-Fire anyway — it’s not a real one when only one side (Israel) agrees.

53% of Israelis are for continuing the response against Hamas. 12%, didn’t voice an opinion.   Though the Jews are not a warring people, their desire to continue is easily explained – over the years, they’ve grown tired of Hamas finally agreeing to a Cease-Fire again, but only when they need to RE-ARM again!

Hamas fired over one thousand missiles this week.   Hamas is not ready for a Cease-Fire; they still have missiles left!

IF Israel puts boots on the ground, and goes in and totally destroys Hamas, they’ll take casualties and the end result will be that Fatah will rise to power anyway.   There is no easy answer and Israel won’t do what is necessary … evict the Palestinians who won’t live in peace.   Palestinians freely elected Hamas … therefore one can rightfully say – ‘they get what they deserve!

To me, though Israelis want to live in peace, all Esau’s offspring should have been sent to Jordan!

Then, there’s the OBAMA question!   He’s done nothing to stop Iran’s development of Nukes!   He, this leftist traitor of ours, has left the door open to ARMAGEDDON!

We can thank our liberal / leftist press; they’re traitors and in spite of God’s word, they’ve built their palace on eroding sands and they’ve led others into this valley. With our current president, we all live here!

We may, just as well, rename America SDEROT!

Sent to me, tonight, by a well-educated friend, a retired Judge: the cry to IMPEACH Obama is coming from all political persuasions!  This came tonight – Tuesday, July 15, 2014 7:30:20 PM, I share it, because even respected liberals are seeing the danger which will surely bring about the demise of our nation.  Historians see the parallel between another dictator’s takeover and that tragic outcome.  I urge you to read this …

My friend’s comment: Henthoff’s a true LIBERAL. A respectable political philosophy. As Rush and others have been saying for a long time now, the post-Kennedy Democrat party has departed from classical liberalism and has taken up socialism or, (call it statism or communism, whatever you prefer — they prefer “progressive” because it sounds so good).   Yes, this is worth reading and reflecting on.

Some years ago, the University of Nebraska asked our firm to help build a crowd for a debate between William Rusher, the publisher of the conservative “National Review Magazine”, and Nat Hentoff, of the liberal, “The Village Voice”.

While William Rusher and William F. Buckley, Jr. and National Review, were already familiar, it was only necessary to read a few back issues of The Village Voice to understand that Nat Hentoff was (and is) one of the world’s most articulate liberals. We filled the auditorium; however, we didn’t know what to expect. Would the debaters be civil or uncivil?

More than civil, they listened respectfully to what the other had to say. The audience was treated to the best ideas that both conservatism and liberalism had to offer in an atmosphere of respect and even genuine friendship between the two icons of their differing points of view.

My Comment:  Similar to the Bill Ayers / Dinesh D’Souza debate.

Unfortunately, in April, 2012, Mr. Rusher went to his Eternal rest. Fortunately, Mr. Hentoff is still with us and continues to give voice to liberal causes. But what brings this particular column about is that Mr. Hentoff, the consummate left-winger, has just called for the impeachment of President Obama, saying that Mr. Obama is the most dangerous and destructive president ever and is far worse than Mr. Hentoff’s former target, President Richard Nixon.

Mr. Hentoff says Mr. Obama has thrown the U.S. Constitution under the bus and is ruling as a dictator. As evidence, Hentoff cites Mr. Obama’s delay of the employer mandate in ObamaCare, the changing of types of plans available under ObamaCare, ignoring our immigrations laws, refusing to deport illegal immigrants, enacting stricter gun-control measures without Congressional legislation, sealing his presidential records, creating government offices and Czars without authorization, and changing the pay grades of selected federal employees without authority.

For some work-a-day Americans, these burrs under Mr. Hentoff’s saddle might seem insignificant; however, one of conservatism’s leading voices, St. John’s University Professor M. Northrup Buechner, writing in Forbes Magazine on November 19, 2013, says Mr. Obama’s unlawful actions could lead to a troubling scenario: “A Republican Congress is elected and repeals ObamaCare over a Democrat President’s veto. The President refuses to enforce the repeal. The Supreme Court rules that the President’s refusal is unconstitutional. The President denounces the ruling and refuses to be bound by it.

“If the President persists in rejecting all authority other than his own, the D�nouement [outcome] would depend on the side taken by the Armed Forces…”

Writing in The Washington Times on November 12, 2013, Commander J.D. Gordon, USN (Ret.), a former Pentagon spokesman, says “…every week since President Obama took office, we’ve been hearing that another top leader has been summarily fired, despite decades of loyal service and valuable experience protecting the nation. Statistically speaking, it’s actually closer to one every 8.8 days, a staggering 200 military brass shown the door in less than five years.

Thus, one wonders if this Stalin-like purge of generals and admirals is a precautionary step taken by Mr. Obama in advance of a descent into the darkness of a Constitutional crisis.

“Fasten your seat belts, this is going to be a bumpy flight.”

* In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Romney. (mathematically, a statistical impossibility).

* In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations – and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. (Another statistical impossibility).

* In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.

* In St. Lucie County, FL, there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.

* The National SEAL Museum, a polling location in St. Lucie County, FL had a 158% voter turnout.

* Palm Beach County, FL had a 141% voter turnout.

* In one Ohio County, Obama won by 108% of the total number of eligible voters.

NOTE 1: This last runoff election in Mississippi, Senator Cochran won by a slight margin, but a pastor came forward and admitted he was a small part in a large fraudulent vote-buying scheme giving the win to the Democrat Cochran – no wonder they oppose it!

NOTE 2: Obama won in every state that did not require a Photo ID and lost in every state that did require a Photo ID in order to vote.

NOTE 3: In what Obama calls a phony scandal, 5 different government agencies all “went after” a new 501 (C)4 organization calling itself “TRUE THE VOTE”.   And he claims there’s not a “smidgen” of corruption!   Another lie!

You, who ignore, the obvious warnings we’ve received — you need to know what evil awaits you, … AWAITS US ALL!  Here, a very graphic depiction of what you may not want to see, but you need to.

Prepare your soul before you see this.  This is current news, not last year, nor enen last month’s.

Those shown, are killing  Christians!   It’s happening in Egypt as well . . . has been for months!

This group of cowards, mostly wearing masks to conceal who they are . . . show why the civilized nations of the world, must now take up arms against this Caliphate, these vile men who kill only because they are evil, and be forewarned, they openly say, — they’re coming after all of us!

As I’ve said before, quoting musician Jackson Browne in Casino Nation (?), like it or not, we may as well face it – from here on in . . . it’s perpetual war! 

Accept that or not, there are other murders being done, right here in America in almost every city in the land.  I can tell you, … openly tell you – believe it or not, … these murders … they’re even more egregious than what you saw in the video above, and what’s worse is we as a nation have sanctioned it ….. they’re being done in our name, with our tax money!

This violence, ABORTION, is performed on the helpless ones – - – those who cannot speak for themselves, nor can they run away,  although when one invades their “safe space“, via modern technology, they can be seen attempting to escape the implements of pain and death!

God instructs us to defend life (scripture below), yet we ignore Him.  

Are we better than these ISIS members moving through Iraq, slaughtering as they  go?

Today, there are 57,000,000 babies killed … and counting, over 3,000 a day in America alone, and it’s not only that.  This particular violence puts the victims through a painful “hell” of dismemberment, before and during death!

We’ll all be judged, for not only what we do …. but also what we did not do! 

Because of our inaction, we bring judgment on all we say we love!   You’ve been warned!  There is no justification!

Proverbs 24:11-12 

Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,”   does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?   Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work?

This (Reblog – author, below) is very strong stuff.  It may not be suitable for some.  It may be too much for others.  It is what it is: a horrific indictment.

obama 1Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his.  He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others.  Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. that was instilled in him by his family and mentors…it seems to have never left him.

It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America.  Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.

Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings?  Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets “goose bumps” when a band plays “The Star Spangled Banner,” or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of ” America the Beautiful?”  Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday or someone plays “taps” on a trumpet?

Has he ever shared the admiration of the military, as we as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march-by?  It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values.  He did not sit at the knee of a Grandfather or Uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free.

He didn’t have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America, penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.

Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn’t delight in being part of America and its greatness.  He wasn’t singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the grave sites of fallen and beloved American heroes.

Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn’t really understand us and what it means to be an American.  He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage.  His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unite us.

He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S., or one that inspires us to be better and grateful and proud that in a short time our country became a leader, and a protector of many.

Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements as well as any critics or opposition for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego.

He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading any American who opposes his policies and actions.  A secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, refrains from showing such dread of critics and displaying a cocky, haughty attitude.

Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissension, unrest, and anxiety among the people of America, rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the “Great Uniter”).

He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue.  Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security.  He incites people to be aggressive toward, and disrespectful of, those of differing opinions.

And through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.

Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.

· Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.

· Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.

· Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people – on a daily basis!

Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up.  He is the Architect of the decline of America, and the epitome of a Demagogue.

UPDATED – 6/18/2014 / 17:55 PST

A Community Organizer prods and pushes. Barack, using Saul Alinsky’s published methods, was perfect for that job. As an “organizer”, he began by whipping up people, . . . against any and every cause — from the beginning, like Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his pastor, he was all about sowing discontent.

How the American people ever bought into his hate . . . his desire to “fundamentally change” the best nation in history, shows how far we’ve strayed from being a Godly nation. Americans are not like that.

That’s not to say we don’t have our faults and injustices; we do! This man who never held a legitimate job and never actually worked a day in his life, has set us back and we may never recover!

With ISIS rising in the middle east, as a Caliphate, and our southern borders wide open, knowing the jihadists now have (our) STINGER missiles and by now, they must have smuggled them into our nation (remember the deal he made with Russia — allowing them to remove the WMD’s from Syria?   Remember his comment to Putin, caught on an open mike, about ‘having more leeway after the election?)

Do you know what ISIS stands for? Islamic State Iraq & Syria! = ISIS

And now he has the unmitigated GALL to try and work with Iran?  Iran’s been our avowed enemy since the mid – 1980’s fighting a proxy war against our ally Israel (via HAMAS & HEZBULLAH) – they’ve killed thousands of Americans.  Iran was an established ally of Hitler during WWII, they’re bent on creating another holocaust for Israeli Jews!

I reported previously (as have reputable foreign news agencies) that the U.S. was arming our enemy (in Benghazi) and actually training them in secret (in Jordan).

THIS is the man YOU elected, America!   (Fool me once . . .) but YOU re-elected him.

When are the people going to wake up and realize this Community Organizer is more than just a member of the “HATE AMERICA FIRST Crowd” – - – he was and is a TRAITOR?!?! Actually, his followers NEVER will.  They too, are “True Believers”.     They are disgruntled unhappy, and angry with America.  They cannot see the fact that, although America has way too much corruption and greed, overall America is a good nation – mankind’s last, best hope!

I fully expect his failure in Syria to be the root cause of terrorists shooting down commercial airliners all over the globe, even in the U.S. His attempts to take us down militarily have been too successful. He needs to be impeached first, and then put on trial . . . . trial for TREASON!

John Whitehead Guest Column–Washington Is Arming Against The Public — June 10, 2014:  John Whitehead asks the questions every American should be asking.

Why Should Anyone Trust a Government That Kills, Maims, Tortures, Lies, Spies, Cheats, and Treats Its Citizens Like Criminals?

By John W. Whitehead

“Why should anyone trust a government that has condoned torture, spied on at least 35 world leaders, supports indefinite detention, places bugs in thousands of computers all over the world, kills innocent people with drone attacks, promotes the post office to log mail for law enforcement agencies and arbitrarily authorizes targeted assassinations? Or, for that matter, a president that instituted the Insider Threat Program, which was designed to get government employees to spy on each other and ‘turn themselves and others in for failing to report breaches,’ which includes ‘any unauthorized disclosure of anything, not just classified materials.’” — Professor Henry Giroux

June 10, 2014 – “Rutherford Institute” – Why should anyone trust a government that kills, maims, tortures, lies, spies, cheats, and treats its own citizens like criminals? For that matter, why should anyone trust a government utterly lacking in transparency, whose actions give rise to more troubling questions than satisfactory answers, and whose domestic policies are dictated more by paranoia than need?

Unfortunately, “we the people” have become so trusting, so gullible, so easily distracted, so out-of-touch, so compliant and so indoctrinated on the idea that our government will always do the right thing by us that we have ignored the warning signs all around us, or at least failed to recognize them as potential red flags.

As I point out in my book “A Government of Wolves”: The Emerging American Police State, the consequences of this failure on both our parts—the citizenry’s and the government’s—to do our due diligence in asking the right questions, demanding satisfactory answers, and holding our government officials accountable to respecting our rights and abiding by the rule of law has pushed us to the brink of a nearly intolerable state of affairs.

Intolerable, at least, to those who remember what it was like to live in a place where freedom, due process and representative government actually meant something. (Remember that the people of Stalin’s Soviet Union and Hitler’s Germany also failed to ask questions, demand answers, and hold their government officials accountable until it was too late, and we know how that turned out.)

There’s certainly no shortage of issues about which we should be asking questions of our government representatives, demanding truthful answers, and subsequently insisting on changes within our government. Keep in mind, however, that the government has mastered the art of evasion. Thus, it’s not enough to ask the questions. We need to demand answers, and when those answers aren’t forthcoming—either because a government official claims to not “know” or because it’s outside his or her jurisdiction—we need to demand that they find out.

To get the ball rolling, here are just a few dozen of the questions that require honest answers by those individuals and agencies that are supposed to be answering to us. For my part, I’m going to send this exact list of questions to my government representatives and see how responsive they are. I’d suggest you do the same.

To start with, what’s the rationale behind turning government agencies into military outposts? There has been a notable buildup in recent years of SWAT teams within non-security-related federal agencies such as Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Education Department. As of 2008, “73 federal law enforcement agencies… [employ] approximately 120,000 armed full-time on-duty officers with arrest authority.” Four-fifths of those officers are under the command of either the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) or the Department of Justice.

What’s with all of the government agencies stockpiling hollow point bullets? For example, why does the Department of Agriculture need .40 caliber semiautomatic submachine guns and 320,000 rounds of hollow point bullets? For that matter, why do its agents need ballistic vests and body armor?

Why does the Postal Service need “assorted small arms ammunition”? Why did the DHS purchase “1.6 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition, along with 7,000 fully-automatic 5.56x45mm NATO ‘personal defense weapons’ plus a huge stash of 30-round high-capacity magazines”? That’s in addition to the FBI’s request for 100 million hollow-point rounds. The Department of Education, IRS, the Social Security Administration, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which oversees the National Weather Service, are also among the federal agencies which have taken to purchasing ammunition and weaponry in bulk.

Why is the federal government distributing obscene amounts of military equipment, weapons and ammunition to police departments around the country? And why is DHS acquiring more than 2,500 Mine-Resistant Armored Protection (MRAP) vehicles, only to pass them around to local police departments across the country? According to the New York Times:

As President Obama ushers in the end of what he called America’s “long season of war,” the former tools of combat — M-16 rifles, grenade launchers, silencers and more — are ending up in local police departments, often with little public notice. During the Obama administration, according to Pentagon data, police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft. The equipment has been added to the armories of police departments that already look and act like military units.

Why is the military partnering with local police to conduct training drills around the country? And what exactly are they training for? In Richland South Carolina, for instance, U.S. army special forces are participating in joint and secretiveexercises and training with local deputies. The public has been disallowed from obtaining any information about the purpose of the drills, other than that they might be loud and to not be alarmed. The Army and DHS also carried out similar drills and maneuvers involving Black Hawk helicopters in Texas, Florida, and other locations throughout the U.S., ostensibly in order to provide officers with realistic urban training.

What is being done to protect the American populace from the threat of military arms and forces, including unarmed drones, being used against them? Policy analysts point to Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities” (issued on Dec. 29, 2010), as justification for the government’s use of military force to put down civil unrest within the United States.

Why is FEMA stockpiling massive quantities of emergency supplies? On January 10, 2014, FEMA made a statement enlisting the service of contractors who could “supply medical biohazard disposal capabilities and 40 yard dumpsters to 1,000 tent hospitals across the United States; all required on 24-48 hour notice.” This coincides with other medical requests seeking massive amounts of supplies, such as “31,000,000 flu vaccinations,” “100,000 each of winter shirts and pants and the same for summer” and other goods and services requests as well like tarps, manufactured housing units, and beverages. And why does the TSA need $21,000 worth of potassium chlorate, a chemical compound often used in explosives?

Why is the Pentagon continuing to purchase mass amounts of ammunition while at the same time preparing to destroy more than $1 billion worth of bullets and missiles that are still viable?

Moreover, what is really being done to hold the Pentagon accountable for its doctored ledgers, fraud, waste and mismanagement, which has cost the taxpayer trillions of dollars? According to Reuters, “The Pentagon is the only federal agency that has not complied with a law that requires annual audits of all government departments. That means that the $8.5 trillion in taxpayer money doled out by Congress to the Pentagon since 1996, the first year it was supposed to be audited, has never been accounted for. That sum exceeds the value of China’s economic output last year.”

Given the similarities between the government’s Live Active Shooter Drill training exercises, carried out at schools, in shopping malls, and on public transit, which can and do fool law enforcement officials, students, teachers and bystanders into thinking it’s a real crisis, how much of what is being passed off as real is, in fact, being staged by DHS for the “benefit” of training law enforcement, leaving us none the wiser? These training exercises come complete with their own set of professionally trained Crisis Actors playing the parts of shooters, bystanders and victims in order to help “schools and first responders create realistic drills, full-scale exercises, high-fidelity simulations, and interactive 3D films.”

Given that Americans are 110 times more likely to die of foodborne illness than in a terrorist attack, why is the government spending trillions of dollars on “national security”? How exactly is the $75 billion given to 15 intelligence agencies annually to keep us “safe” being spent? And why is the DHS giving away millions of dollars’ worth of federal security grants to states that federal intelligence agencies ruled have “no specific foreign or domestic terrorism threat”?

Why is the government amassing names and information on Americans considered to be threats to the nation, and what criteria is the government using for this database? Keep in mind that this personal information is being acquired and kept without warrant or court order. It’s been suggested that in the event of nuclear war, the destruction of the US Government, and the declaration of martial law, this Main Core database, which as of 2008 contained some 8 million names of Americans, would be used by military officials to locate and round up Americans seen as threats to national security, a program to be carried about by the Army and FEMA.

Taken individually, these questions are alarming enough. However, when viewed collectively, they leave one wondering what exactly the U.S. government is preparing for and whether American citizens shouldn’t be preparing, as well, for that eventuality when our so-called “government of the people, by the people, for the people” is no longer answerable to “we the people.”

I’m referring to the newly reported INVASION of helpless children (and a few adults) coming to America … It’s been building for months!  One Texas source says it’s toppong 35,000 / month there . . .  CONFIRMATION HERE!

Ok; FOR NOW, it’s only reported on CNN & Fox news, but this is too in-our-face; it can’t remain hidden for long – - just like the V.A. scandal ! ! !  A few days later, it’s now being reported in the mainstream media.

Parents in Honduras, Guatemala, etc. are telling their children … “go with these children! Get to America; find Aunt Esmeralda (or whatever her name is) – - – the newspapers in Central America are telling us all, that America’s President Obama won’t deport you; you go live with your aunt; we’ll come … eventually. We want a better life for you now. GO! Ride the trains like thousands of others are doing. When you get there, find your aunt – America’s government, they’ll feed you and put you on a bus to go to your aunt and uncle.”

And the children cry, but they do! They climb aboard and ride the tops of train . . .

They’re coming, by the thousands … and that number will grow and continue to increase … as the terrorism to the south of us drives their parents to send them north to America — it’s better than their children being forced into the cartels … the FARC …

All this, my friend, is step 17a under the Cloward & Piven plan! (That’s a made-up reference number – but you get the idea.) Cloward & Piven, (leftist professors @ Columbia) laid out a plan to break America down, and Obama’s part in it, is in full swing … it’s the final phase to break America’s World Dominance!

He’s using children to do it!  America’s compassion was identified by her enemies as her weak link, long ago!

But . . . there are no buses to Hoboken! There are no buses to take these children to find Aunt Esmeralda in any city.  It’s all a sham!  These children, once they cross the border are not turned away – - – from the closed military bases and FEMA camps, they are being placed on buses and sent to various assorted cities across America!  Almost always, the children think they’re being taken to their relatives, but they’re abandoned in an unfamiliar city!

Obama knows America’s churches will step up and care for these children. His hatred of Christianity, his plan to overwhelm the system – they’re both parts of the plan being carried out. If it doesn’t immediately break us financially, … soon, it will.

For us, it means the endangering of our population (young and old) with new strains of old diseases, long ago eradicated, in the U.S. – more stress on America’s Obamacare System — the wait-to-see-if-they-survive healthcare . . .

All this’s no different than letting prisoners out of jail – prisoners who made bad choices before and have no marketable skills for … no existing jobs … this is all meant to stress an already broken system.

Soon, very soon, we’ll be ready for the next, final steps – invasion by hostile troops? Or will selling government assets to China be first???

These elected folks inside the beltway are TRAITORS OF THE HIGHEST ORDER – pretenders, one and all.

Bergdahl may be mentally unstable and may have been unable to help himself, … but these politicians knew full well, from-the-get-go, they were doing us dirty.

As Occupy stated: (paraphrased) maybe it’s about time to ready the firing squads! ARMOR UP! This is not the “FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE” we wanted!

By: Phil “Hands” Handley Colonel, USAF (Ret.)

Here is what Col. Handley wrote in response to Panetta and Dempsey’s claims there was no time to send help to Benghazi.

The combat code of the US Military is that we don’t abandon our dead or wounded on the battlefield. In US Air Force lingo, fighter pilots don’t run off and leave their wingmen. If one of our own is shot down, still alive and not yet in enemy captivity, we will either come to get him or die trying.

Among America ‘s fighting forces, the calm, sure knowledge that such an irrevocable bond exists is priceless. Along with individual faith and personal grit, it is a sacred trust that has often sustained hope in the face of terribly long odds.

The disgraceful abandonment of our Ambassador and those brave ex-SEAL’s who fought to their deaths to save others in that compound is nothing short of dereliction-of-duty.
Additionally, the patently absurd cover-up scenario that was fabricated in the aftermath was an outright lie in an attempt to shield the President and the Secretary of State from responsibility.

The White House strategy, with the aid of a “lap dog” press has been to run out the clock before the truth is forthcoming.

The contention “that there were simply no military assets that could be brought to bear in time to make a difference” mainly due to the unavailability of tanker support for fighter aircraft is simply Bull Chit, regardless how many supposed “experts” the Administration trots out to make such an assertion.

The bottom line is that even if the closest asset capable of response was half-way around the world, you don’t just sit on your penguin ass and do nothing.

The fact is that the closest asset was not half-way around the world, but as near as Aviano Air Base, Italy where two squadrons of F-16Cs are based.

Consider the following scenario (all times Benghazi local): When Hicks in Tripoli receives a call at 9:40 PM from Ambassador Stevens informing him “Greg, we are under attack!” (his last words). Hicks immediately notifies all agencies and prepares for the immediate initiation of an existing “Emergency Response Plan.”

At AFRICON, General Carter Ham attempts to mount a rescue effort, but is told to “stand down”. By 10:30 PM an unarmed drone is overhead the compound and streaming live feed to various “Command and Control Agencies” so everyone watching that feed knew damn well what was going on.

At 11:30 PM Woods, Doherty and five others leave Tripoli, arriving in Benghazi at 1:30 AM on Wednesday morning, where they hold off the attacking mob from the roof of the compound until they are killed by a mortar direct hit at 4:00 AM.

So nothing could have been done, eh? Nonsense. If one assumes that tanker support really “was not available,” what about this:

When at 10:00 PM AFRICON alerts the 31st TFW Command Post in Aviano Air Base, Italy of the attack, the Wing Commander orders preparation for the launch of two F-16s and advises the Command Post at NAS Sigonella to prepare for hot pit refueling and quick turn of the jets.

By 11:30 PM, two F-16Cs with drop tanks and each armed with five hundred 20 MM rounds are airborne. Flying at 0.92 mach they will cover the 522 nautical miles directly to NAS Sigonella in 1.08 hours. While in-route, the flight lead is informed of the tactical situation, rules of engagement, and radio frequencies to use.

The jets depart Sigonella at 1:10 AM with full fuel load and cover the 377 nautical miles directly to Benghazi in 0.8 hours, arriving at 1:50 AM which would be 20 minutes after the arrival of Woods, Doherty and their team.

Providing that the two F-16s initial pass over the mob, in full afterburner at 200 feet and 550 knots did not stop the attack in its tracks, a few well-placed strafing runs on targets of opportunity would assuredly do the trick.

Were the F-16s fuel state insufficientto return to Sigonelli after jettisoning their external drop tanks, they could easily do so at Tripoli International Airport , only one-half hour away.

As for those hand-wringing naysayers who would worry about IFR clearances, border crossing authority, collateral damage, landing rights, political correctness and dozens of other reasons not to act — screw them. It is time our “leadership” get its priorities straight and put America’s interests first.

The end result would be that Woods and Doherty would be alive. Dozens in the attacking rabble would be rendezvousing with “72 virgins” and a clear message would have been sent to the next worthless P.O.S. terrorist contemplating an attack on Americans that it is not really a good idea to “tug” on Superman’s cape.

Of course all this depends upon a ‘Commander In Chief’ more concerned with saving the lives of those he put in harm’s way than getting his crew rested for a campaign fund raising event in Las Vegas the next day. It also depends upon a Secretary of State who actually understood “What difference did it make?”, and a Secretary of Defense who was watching the feed from the drone and understood what the attack consisted of instead of making an immediate response that “One of the military tenants is that you don’t commit assets until you fully understand the tactical situation.”

YGBSM! ( You Gotta Be Chittin’ Me)

Ultimately it comes down to the question of who gave that order to stand-down? Whoever that coward turns out to be should be exposed, removed from office, and face criminal charges for dereliction of duty. The combat forces of the United States of America deserve leadership that really does “have their back” when the chips are down.

Yup Colonel Phil “Hands” Handley really did write this………..

Colonel Phil “Hands” Handley is credited with the highest speed air-to-air gun kill in the history of aerial combat. He flew operationally for all but 11 months of a 26-year career, in aircraft such as the F-86 Sabre, F-15 Eagle, and the C-130A Hercules. Additionally, he flew 275 combat missions during two tours in Southeast Asia in the F-4D and F-4E. His awards include 21 Air Medals, 3 Distinguished Flying Crosses, and the Silver Star.

LISTEN UP! It’s Time To Say “THANK YOU” To Those Who Saved The World!

I’ve re-blogged this article By Michael Reagan – I’ve added 1 line (in red, below) and changed this article (formatting only) very little. The entire article can be read here: |

mikereaganHere in this little French village of Sainte Mere Eglise they remember D-Day.

Sainte Mere Eglise, as students of history and World War II movies know, became the first town to be liberated from Hitler’s armies when hundreds of American paratroopers fell from the sky early on the morning of June 6, 1944.

The people of Sainte Mere Eglise have never forgotten the men of the 101st Airborne and 82nd Airborne divisions who were killed or wounded during an operation designed to prevent the Germans from using a road to counterattack the amphibious landings at Utah and Omaha beaches.

They’ve renamed village streets for Dwight Eisenhower and other American generals and they have hung a white parachute and a dummy of a paratrooper from the spire of the village church to commemorate the story of John Steele.

Steele was the U.S. 82nd Airborne private — played by Red Buttons in “The Longest Day” — whose chute got hung up on the church roof and survived being shot by the German soldiers below only by playing dead for two hours.

My wife Colleen and I are in Normandy with my Reagan Legacy Foundation, which raised money to help send 14 veterans of D-Day back to France to celebrate an important day in history that too few Americans under 60 know anything about.

We’ll walk on Omaha and Utah beaches. We’ll visit the American cemetery at Colleville. And on Friday morning, the 6th of June, we’ll be at Sword Beach for the official international ceremony co-chaired by President Obama and French President Hollande.

For understandable reasons, D-Day is a huge deal here. The people of Sainte Mere Eglise have already been marking the 70th anniversary for a week with parades, dedications, reenactments, speeches, walking tours, music performances and a 250-man parachute drop.

To the 1,500 people of this town and throughout this part of France, June 6 is like a hundred of our Memorial Days rolled into one. I’ve made a habit for years of asking young people I meet if they know what D-Day is or was. It makes me sad that D-Day means so much to the French but almost nothing to most Americans, particularly those under 60.

Most have no clue what I’m talking about. And I’m afraid the few who do know something about the brave and tragic things that happened at Normandy only know it because they’ve seen “Saving Private Ryan.”

When I tell young people D-Day was the day their grandfather’s generation landed on the beaches of France, kicked the German war machine’s butt and began the liberation of Nazi Europe, many of them are amazed.

“Really?” they say. Their teachers have clearly never gotten around to telling them what was so important about D-Day — or much else about World War II and the sacrifices our soldiers and sailors made.

Tom Brokaw has said he’s shocked by how so many young people are oblivious about our history. They’re especially uninformed when it comes to what the “Greatest Generation” did to preserve our freedom and the freedom of millions around the world.

Fewer and fewer members of that great WWII generation are left. The American teenagers who came ashore at Normandy and fought their way to Germany are pushing 90.

In 2024 we’ll be lucky to have a platoon of them to help us mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day, a day we need to give more respect to and can never afford to forget. The left is still working feverishly to rewrite history and destroy “American exceptionalism” . . .   We cannot allow this history, to be expunged!

Brandeis Rescinds Hirsi Ali’s Honorary Degree / An open letter to the Brandeis faculty – by Martin J. Gross

BrandeisRescindsHirsiALi-230x150When I graduated from Brandeis in 1972, where I majored in philosophy, I immediately knew that I owed Brandeis a great debt. And so, over the past 2 decades I have been, at times, an adjunct lecturer at the Brandeis International Business School, served on the Board of the Business School, and the Board of the University itself. With gratitude I have contributed significant sums to my alma mater, including a Chair in Financial Markets and Institutions to the Business School.

It was at Brandeis that I was introduced to the pre-Socratic philosophers and was fascinated with how they struggled to find ways to explain the world around them, and how their ideas influenced Plato, Aristotle and others who succeeded them. It was at Brandeis that I was introduced to the thought of Immanuel Kant, and the other giants of western thought, as well as the thought of other cultures. It was at Brandeis that I came to understand that in intellectual dialogue all ideas are on the table, that everyone is entitled to his point of view and that public scrutiny of ideas is the best way to assess their worth. It was at Brandeis that I was taught how controversy served as an impetus to critical thinking, and that it is often the very people who are condemned for expressing ideas, like Spinoza and Galileo, who are later considered the great minds of western thought. And it was this foundation that I relied upon when I next studied philosophy and politics at Oxford University and then law at the University of Chicago.

I must now confess to having serious concerns about the spirit of free inquiry at my alma mater when it rescinds an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a woman who champions women’s rights in the Muslim world. A woman honored in Denmark, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden. A woman who received the Moral Courage Award from the American Jewish Committee and was voted Woman of the Year for 2006 by the European editors of Readers Digest magazine.

And I thought it regrettable that upon learning that Hirsi Ali was offered an honorary degree 87 Brandeis faculty members were so “filled with shame” that they presented President Lawrence with a letter urging him to “rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi Ali for an honorary doctorate” based on her “virulently anti-Muslim public statements.”

These faculty members said that “the selection of Ms. Hirsi Ali further suggests to the public that violence toward girls and women is particular to Islam or the Two-Thirds World, thereby obscuring such violence in our midst among non-Muslims, including on our own campus”. And they also could not “accept Ms. Hirsi Ali’s triumphalist narrative of western civilization, rooted in a core belief of the cultural backwardness of non-western peoples.”

For the sake of argument, let’s stipulate that some of her comments may be provocative and controversial. But that is what intellectual inquiry is all about. For decades serious scholars have examined in all major religions the use of force, the role of violence and compulsion, male dominance over women, the role of honor killings, etc. Since when have these topics become off limits to scholars?

It is hard for me to imagine that these faculty members seriously think that violence against women on the Brandeis campus is in any way comparable to the violence against young women in a single Nigerian village. When was the last time a Brandeis student was sold into slavery?

What is worthy of note is that Hirsi Ali’s views do not come from an ivory tower but from the concrete reality of her personal experiences as a woman. She was genitally mutilated as a child, fled a forced marriage at age 12 and lives under constant threat of death by the very people who proudly wear the ideology she condemns. Who are we to judge that her conclusions are beyond the pale? Surely we would not condemn a Christian or Jew at the time of the bloody Crusades who said similar things about Christianity. When Tony Kushner said that the very creation of Israel itself was a mistake, this did not disqualify him from receiving an honorary degree from Brandeis University.

And how preposterous is their issue with her Western triumphalism, especially when she fled to the West from the very ideology that is trying to kill her. Is not the belief in American exceptionalism triumphalist in nature? Just last September President Obama himself celebrated the idea of American exceptionalism before the UN General Assembly. Would this disqualify him for an honorary degree?

I am profoundly perplexed that there is no counter letter submitted by any faculty member to President Lawrence. Is there not a single woman faculty member in the Women and Gender Studies Program who can find the compassion to defend her? Is the majority of the faculty too intimidated to speak out against this new tyranny for fear of being ostracized?

The only acceptable response to bona fide controversy is robust dialogue. It now appears that Brandeis’ motto of ‘truth unto its innermost parts’ has been replaced by the eleventh commandment of political correctness – “Thou shalt not offend.”

Although I’ve worked at writing this off and on for months, I continued to delay publishing this as each new scandal broke, but today, frustrated with waiting any longer, . . . adding a couple of my own, I used (but slightly expanded Eric Rush’s list

When all is said and done, the Bergdahl-Taliban deal will be seen as having purposed to distract Americans from:

  •  the Benghazi select committee hearing
  • the Veteran’s Administration scandal.
  • allowing Iran to develop Nukes FOR terrorists – preparation for ARMAGEDDON!
  • NSA scandal
  • IRS scandals
  • Depleting our military
  •  the administration’s cooperating w/ Al-Qaeda, arming Islamist rebels in Syria,
  • Fast and Furious scandal
  • Illegally implementing “The Dream Act”
  • Lying about Obamacare
  • Changes to Obamacare without Congressional participation
  • Bureau of Land Management excesses (level political corruption attendant to that),
  • the administration’s collusion with the Muslim Brotherhood at home and abroad and their complicity in the Arab Spring, which has cost tens of thousands of lives,
  • their support for al-Qaeda in Libya,
  • Terrorist organizations operating w/ drug cartels
  • A massive new influx of illegal aliens (even children) looking to gain citizenship including Democrat’s attempt to gain new voters
  • failing to effectively close our borders
  • creating a “safe corridor” for smuggling
  • Selective enforcement of laws including drug enforcement
  • Obama’s insinuation of Muslim Brotherhood operatives into the Department of Homeland Security
  • dismantling of terror training protocols in the FBI and Pentagon,
  • backing Nazis in Ukraine,
  • as well as the mountain of fiat federal regulation calculated to cripple America economically.

Regarding the latter, most noteworthy is the recent announcement that Obama plans to enact new fiat law via the Environmental Protection Agency, which will soon mandate that power plants cut carbon dioxide emissions 30 percent by 2030. Given their abysmal knowledge of economics and Obama’s true agenda, Americans remain unaware that not only will this aid in his quest to facilitate skyrocketing energy costs (his own words), but that it will exponentially inflate the costs of absolutely everything upon which Americans spend money.

For Obama, I guess it’s all in a day’s work. We must look at the aggregate of this president’s policies and actions and cease criticizing the symptoms thereof. Speaking of criticism: You might also ask yourself why there has been so much outcry over the Bergdahl-Taliban swap from a GOP leadership that has remained more or less mum on far more egregious actions Obama has taken during his presidency.

In attempting to amend our Constitution, taking away your right to free speech, these

Is that Senator Schumer or Reid behind the beard?

Is that Senator Schumer or Reid behind the beard?

Senators, listed below, … have shown themselves as unethical and need to be REMOVED FROM OFFICE!

They’ll tell you it’s about campaign financing, and it is, but read the bill yourself!  There is no need to amend the Constitution to impact campaign financing!  Rather, this is to protect incumbents!

Each concerned voter needs to express their outrage; I called my Senator’s office (Senator Murray) – will you call yours?

There’s not one excuse for any patriotic American to re-elect any one of the Senators on this following list – I listed them by state so that they’re easier for you to find.  Note please, every last one of them is a Democrat!

(Overall, I suspect this says a lot more about the electorate in these states than it does the actual scum Senators — a) that they have elected these types of representatives to office, b) that they don’t take the time to fulfill their obligation to know what kind of scumbags they’ve voted into office, c) that they just don’t give a damn!)

Senator Ted Cruz (whom we’re in debt to, for exposing this) stung Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer (NY), and 40 other Democrats, saying that the Democrat-controlled legislative body wants to “repeal the First Amendment.”  (My apologies if I missed one — I understand there are now 42 instead of 41.)

“I’m not making this up,” said Cruz, speaking at the Family Research Council event on Thursday. “Senator Chuck Schumer has announced the Senate Democrats are scheduling a vote on a constitutional amendment to give Congress the plenary power, the unlimited authority, to regulate political speech,” Cruz told the audience, who sounded quite disgruntled to hear the news (Video Below).

Cruz then explained why Democrats are pushing for the anti-free speech measure:

“Because elected officials have decided they don’t like it when the citizenry has the temerity to criticize what they’ve done. They don’t like it when pastors in their community stand up and speak the truth. And it makes their lives inconvenient when they’re not standing for principle and actually that’s pointed out back home.”

Cruz went on to explain that the amendment, which has 41 co-sponsors (all Democrats) would specifically protect organizations like the New York Times, but would be an attack on religious liberty and would “muzzle” citizens from “saying things that government finds inconvenient.”

The Perfect Storm – Setting the Stage For the Coming, Final World War

How often do we get a glimpse into future potentialities?  How many speakers can and do take us there?

I urge you to watch this, . . . in its entirety.   This gets more and more conclusive as it ends – a “must watch”!

And Israel: How Long Before They Strike Again? – - – against a hostile nation, one holding a nuclear weapon this time, one which looks to arm the terrorists of the world?

Obama’s signals to Tehran, to Moscow, to Beijing, have been received loud and clear. There’s no turning back!  Delays?  Your call!

What follows (in black) was written by Retired Lt. Commander Allen West EXCEPT for my comments in red – I have left out some of his writing.

Here, is the link to his article in full.

Watching the news conference, … in a surreal way, the “walking out” of Bergdahl’s parent’s, to the news conference, showing President Obama’s arm around the waist of Mrs. Bergdahl, with her husband lagging behind, seemed to return us to the womanizing of the Clinton era!

One immediately knew some major attempt at deception was going on!

Objective military assessment: Bowe Bergdahl case  //   Written by Allen West on June 2, 2014

BergdahlI am writing this because last night I heard Fox News’ Harris Faulkner refer to Army SGT Bowe Bergdahl as a local hero. I just listened to Bergdahl’s father refer to his son’s character.

So, we must have a discussion of the truth here.  Army SGT Bergdahl was not “captured” by the enemy in 2009.  He abandoned his assigned post on his Forward Operating Base (FOB), leaving his weapon.

Several U.S. Army Soldiers lost their lives in search for Bergdahl.

His disappearance can only be classified as desertion and the media must not be so giddy about a good news story that they don’t tell the truth — which is apparent to many. The allegation of desertion is serious. It is even more grave, because it occurred during a war, during combat operations.

The U.S. Army must uphold proper order and discipline and this allegation must be investigated — but the truth is already known. I believe the liberal media will attempt to elevate him to some type of status that will cause the Army not to pursue the right direction under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).

We who have served in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other combat areas of operation against radical Islamists know they don’t hold our troops — they are savagely and brutally murdered.  They exist to kill Americans.

Are we glad that Bergdahl is home?  After five years, yes, but there are many unanswered questions that cannot be dismissed because of emotions.

As well, America has now negotiated with terrorists, because the Taliban is not a nation-state, it is a non-state, non-uniform belligerent organization, a terrorist group. This is a dangerous precedent and was done unilaterally by President Obama.

How many of our troops lost their lives and sacrificed to capture those five senior Taliban leaders?  All for naught.  I must admit, the only way I would have released these barbarians would have been once a tracking chip/device had been implanted — without their knowledge.  I believe there are long-term ramifications that will result from the release of these five terrorists — there was a reason why the Afghan Taliban demanded these five.

And why would we enter into brokerage with Qatar, a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood?

I believe we should see them for who they are and cease our air operations from that country.

We all know how the media works — hence why Obama made this move over the weekend, on Saturday, as a matter of fact. The belief is that we will cease paying attention to the story by middle of this week.  But we cannot.  Bergdahl is home, but emotions cannot allow us to abandon our senses, as he abandoned his post.

Bottom line, there is always more to the story than what some want you to know — but in the case of Army SGT Bowe Bergdahl, there is a lot to know.

The question is, will we allow the typical sound bite liberal media to direct us away from seeking the truth?

It looks as if President Obama was too quick to champion a deserter, while at the same time ignoring a Marine caught in a friendly nation’s Prison! … too quick to release terrorists who will most likely be returned to be celebrated and rejoin killing American soldiers!  If so, we must hold President Obama CULPABLE and prosecute him!

V.A. VIOLENCE — Violence of a Different Genre

A NEW LAW SUIT brings an incident of physical violence to the forefront of the V.A. scandal, but this was actual physical violence, perpetrated on a veteran caught in the middle of a different type of ‘long wait’!

The solution being proposed (now that the (MSM) mainstream media, is actually covering 1 of the 5 different and prominent Obama Administration scandals) was denied this veteran. Instead, when tried to leave and seek treatment elsewhere . . . . he was attacked!

The family of a 65 year-old veteran claims that VA police stomped on the veterans head and neck, causing him to suffer a stroke and die several weeks later, a new lawsuit alleges.

On May 25, 2011, Jonathan Montano was waiting several hours to undergo dialysis treatment at the Loma Linda VA facility when he grew frustrated, reports Courthouse News Service.

With an IV still in his arm, Montano made his way towards the hospital exit, saying that he would get treatment at the Long Beach VA facility instead.

Norma Montano, the veteran’s wife of 44 years, left the hospital to retrieve the couple’s car.

But VA police wouldn’t let Montano leave, the lawsuit alleges.

“The summoned VA Police Department police officers then stopped Jonathan Montano from leaving the VA Hospital in Loma Linda, by tackling him to the floor, slamming his head on the floor, and kneeing and stomping on his neck, and otherwise brutalizing and restraining him,” reads the lawsuit, according to Courthouse News.

“This kneeing and stomping on his neck by the VA Police Department police officers caused the dissection of his carotid artery, that resulted in immediate (or very soon thereafter) blood clotting, which resulted in [his] suffering a stroke. Moreover, the brutalization of Jonathan Montano resulted in him suffering other serious physical injuries, and associated physical, mental and emotional pain, suffering and distress.”

When Mrs. Montano came back into the hospital to find her husband, she was told that her husband had suffered a stroke.   But, she claims, hospital staff initially said Montano suffered the stroke after a fall — an “untrue statement,” the suit alleges.

“Later on, one of the nurses at the VA Hospital in Loma Linda took Norma Montano aside, and told her that her husband didn’t fall, but was slammed to the ground by the VA Police, that Norma Montano was being lied to, and that it wasn’t right what the VA Police did to Jonathan Montano,” the suit alleges.

Montano died several weeks after the stroke, on June 11, 2011.

With the lawsuit, the widow Montano and her children are seeking damages for wrongful death, assault and battery, false imprisonment, and negligence, the Courthouse News Service reports.

The suit comes as the Veterans Administration is embroiled in a wide-ranging scandal involving the alleged mistreatment of veterans at hospitals across the country. In those cases, hospitals have allegedly forced veterans to wait longer for treatment by placing them on secret waiting lists.

Montano’s case is not tied to the current scandal, his wife claims. Rather, it is a case of police brutality.

And the Obama Administration is COMPLICIT!

They’ve sat back and allowed Tons of drugs to flood north, heavily impacting American cities as our corrupt Congress, and now, with Soros’ money in hand, they begin the next phase – legislation – legalizing drugs, plus quietly making land (drug smuggling routes) off limits to Americans while curtailing money to secure our borders and fight drugs.

613-drug-cartel-message-billboard-610And in El Paso, hangs an open message – note the bottom right.  A mannequin hanging from a billboard warns cops and potential ICE agents like Brian Terry . . . who was sent in to die with bean bags to fight with – not far different than Benghazi …

Choose ‘silver over lead’ is the not-so-subtle message – in other words — police and business owners can either take drug cartels’ bribes or die — chillingly similar to the way that actual bodies are often displayed south of the U.S./Mexican border.

On May 20, 2014 the New York City Council conducted a hearing focused on the skyrocketing increase of heroin inundating New York City.

The city’s special narcotics prosecutor, Bridget Brennan, who told a City Council hearing Tuesday that the amount of heroin sold by New York City-based drug traffickers is skyrocketing.

“So far we’ve seized 288 pounds (in 2014), and that’s in four and a half months — compared to last year, when during the entire year we seized about 177 pounds,” Brennan said. ” … Obviously, we’re going to surpass last year.”

Shortly after taking office, New York City’s Mayor De Blasio made the astonishing statement that he would provide illegal aliens with identity documents.

One can begin to look at the larger picture, (U.N. Agenda 21), or sit back and watch the heat slowly rise, boiling we frogs . . . I suggest the video!

It’s long been true that things are not always as presented . . . to find the truth, one must read various sources.

It must’ve been Fox News where I saw several deceptive reports this weekend. Were they counting on regular viewers being busy? What was presented was clearly a long way from the truth!

• The Pope purposefully prayed at the “Separation Barrier,” calling the Stalemate in peace efforts “unacceptable”.
• He referred to Abbas as President of “Palestine” pointedly calling this terrorist leader of Fatah, “a man of peace” and called Bethlehem his “Presidential Palace.”
• He wrote last November that “authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to every form of violence.”

Abbas said on March 15, 2013: “As far as I am concerned, there is no difference between our policies and those of Hamas.” He said that while undoubtedly knowing that Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna is quoted in the Hamas Charter as saying: “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.” Hamas’s Al Aqsa TV has featured a music video that proclaimed: “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah.”

Sound like a man of peace to you?

Palestinian Media Watch reported on May 14 that “on one of its official Facebook pages the Fatah movement, which is headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, yesterday posted a warning to Israelis. A sign showed an assault rifle and a map of ‘Palestine’ that included both PA areas and all of Israel. In Arabic, Hebrew, and English it said: ‘Warning. This is a land of a Palestinian state and the occupation to leave immediately’ (English original).”
Fatah has also vowed to “adhere to the option of armed resistance until the liberation of all of Palestine,” and threatened to “turn the beloved [Gaza] Strip into a graveyard for your soldiers, and we will turn Tel Aviv into a ball of fire.”

Where the Pope paused to pray at what AP called “Israel’s controversial separation barrier,” – actually its security barrier – featured graffiti referring to the barrier as an “apartheid wall” and comparing Bethlehem to the Warsaw Ghetto.

Middle East analyst Tom Gross noted that in reality, “the security barrier, which has saved countless lives, was built to protect Israelis after some 1000 civilians were killed by suicide bombers.” Israel did not build the barrier because of “racism” or a desire to emulate apartheid South Africa — to compare Israel to apartheid South Africa is a monstrous piece of disinformation, as a black South African has explained.

Allowing himself to become an instrument of Palestinian jihad propaganda, and spreading that propaganda himself, the Pope has done a grave disservice to free people and aided and abetted the genocidal jihad against Israel. The damage resulting from his trip is impossible to calculate at this point, but it could be immense. Pope Francis’s jaunt in the “State of Palestine,” was a tremendous show of support for the jihad against Israel, and a dark day for the papacy, the Roman Catholic Church, and free people everywhere.

My blog article was written from a piece by Robert Spencer, published in FRONT PAGE

POT: Convincing Youth to Wait & Watch

Years ago, as my youngest was about to go off to college, he was riding w/ me – a captive audience – - -

He protested at first, when I explained to him I had to tell him something before he left home.

He replied: “Dad I’ve heard you talk of this, thousands of times . . .”

I persisted, telling him I couldn’t live w/ myself, if I didn’t say it.

He stared blankly out the window as I began: “I know you know all this, but someday, one of your friends will hint he’s going to try pot.   When that happens, … convince him to wait, … to watch his friends who are already using … to see them totally changing, to see their lives begin to go down the toilet …   You just may save a friend’s life, if they listen,” I concluded, just as we pulled into our drive.

I expected him to ‘cut & run’ – head into the house immediately as he often did.   He didn’t. Eyes welled up, before he shut the work-van’s door while I was gathering my day’s paperwork, he looked at me, squarely in the eye and said: “I wish you’d have said that to me long ago.”

I never found out who he was referring to, not specifically, but I suspect; I don’t need to know.

Pot is a gateway drug and it’s gone from around 1-2% THC to near 20 times as powerful!  It’s no longer, their parent’s pot!  I know; I’m a former user.

My youngest went on to not only graduate but got his master’s and worked in Children’s Hospital Los Angeles – he’s now returned to Oregon, and works as a counselor.

It was my love for my older children that drove me …  One’s grown and is a fine, man, with his head on straight – I couldn’t be more proud of both my boys!   My daughter?  I still grieve – she’s still struggling ….

We never quit loving our children, no matter how lost they become.  I’ll hate drugs with a passion until I die!  Nothing good comes from “using”!

We make mistakes as we go through life – seems we can only count on God, fervent, persistent prayer, and sometimes . . . eventually, often after learning the hard way, we do things a little bit right.

Thank You Father!  And thank you Drug Watch!

Here we go again. Like it or not, this impacts us all.

Your SOCIAL SECURITY check, has now become your FEDERAL BENEFIT CHECK . . . obviously our guvmunt “leaders” want us more grateful, thinking they’ve given us something . . . something we’ve earned!

This touches a nerve in me, and I hope it does in you.

Please keep passing it on; everyone in our country needs to read it. We need to keep a watchful eye on these Slimers of our tax monies … money which was to be saved, yet they looted . . .

This isn’t a benefit; it’s earned income! Not only did we all contribute to Social Security but our employers did too.

It totaled 15% of our income before taxes.  If your salary averaged $30K per year over your working life, that’s close to $180,000 Invested in Social Security.  If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social security ($375/month, including both your and your employers contributions) at a meager 1% Interest rate compounded monthly, after 40 years of working you’d have more than $1.3 million dollars saved — your personal investment

Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per month.

That’s almost three times more than today’s average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month, according to the Social Security Administration. Don’t trust these figures? Google it!

And your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you’re 98 if you retire at age 65)! I can only imagine how much better most average-income people could live in retirement if our government had just invested our money in low-risk   interest-earning accounts.

Instead, the slimy thieves in Washington pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff ever did.

They looted our money . . . our “savings” and used it elsewhere – - – mostly in ways to make them look good and get them re-elected so they could continue finding other ways to grow wealthy.  They knew it was OUR money. They didn’t have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to them. And they didn’t pay interest on what they stole. And now, they’re telling us that the money won’t support us for very much longer.

But is it our fault . . .  And now, to add insult to injury, they’re calling it a benefit, as if we never worked to earn every penny of it.

They looked @ our investments as it were a charity to them! That’s called THEFT! We have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare. 92% of our population who need it.

Call it what it is: Our Earned Retirement Income.   My suggestion?  Throw ‘em all out!

This video, showing how lacking college student’s knowledge is regarding what Benghazi is, (yesterday’s hot news item) would be funny if it weren’t so pathetic!   Dan Joseph of Media Research Center, interviewed students at George Mason University, 30 minutes outside D.C., in Fairfax, Va.

Hoping to shine a light on the subversive-ineptness of the mainstream media (msm), I’ve re-written somewhat, Ericka Andersen’s insightful story. // May 20, 2014 at 9:01 p.m.

College students have plenty to say about Climate Change, energy, finance and economics, but virtually nothing about the four Americans killed in the Benghazi terrorist attack or the surrounding controversy.

As Dan determined, that could be because students don’t know much about what happened in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012.

Media Research Center shows up the mainstream media — shows how they’re “carrying-the-water” for the Obama Administration by intentionally omitting it from the news . . . another type of covering up what should be, . . . probably will be, an Impeachable Offense.

Of course one can also blame the overwhelming percentage of LEFTIST college professors as well.  Back in the early 70′s – current students conspired to take over the colleges and inculcate subsequent generations.   I know; as a former leftist, I was there!

There’s also plenty of blame to go around … a large percentage of students are enjoying the social aspects of school mainly because their parents pay for their education while they find a career and a purpose in life …

When he asked them who sings the hit “Happy,” students came up with the answer easily: Pharrell Williams.

But when Joseph asked, “What is Benghazi?” he received mostly blank stares.

Two students said it was a “place in Afghanistan.”  Others were even further off—one woman suggested the word was related to a “Save the Children” initiative, but stick through the short video – the end is absolutely hilarious!

gay flagDon’t tell me “you never knew …” or “you never noticed“, but from day 1, President Obama has been pushing GAY RIGHTS as a priority – - - it’s an integral part of his overall agenda!

It’s an integral part of who he is!

Note his selection of “Southern Decadence” to march in his first Inaugural Parade.  Take a look at their webpage!

Well, in case you’ve not heard yet, he’s at it again!   In another “coded signal” to his gay and liberal supporters, his administration is celebrating the life of Harvey Milk, San Fran’s GAY Harvey MilkACTIVIST POLITICIAN by the issuing of a Postage Stamp, probably tomorrow, on his birthday!  Read of Harvey on Wikipedia.

Again, this is just one more aspect of Barach’s life … one which the main-stream-media has hidden from the public, one which all of D.C. is terrified to talk of, . . . but it’s there to be found; one just has to look.  But, . . . lots of Chicago knew of his “Down Low” lifestyle …

To even blog of this, will surely get me “labeled” as a homophobe, yet I loved my brother who lived the Gay AND Bi lifestyles.

My brother and his ‘wife’ used to laugh @ me as I emerged from the small room in their apt. every morning … (it had once been a walk-in closet) and their ‘inside joke’ was that I was “coming out of the closet again” …

They knew where I drew the line, and finally let me in on their elitist joke, several visits later.   I can laugh at that now … finally, but back then, in the late 70′s, one of their favorite things was to take me to their favorite restaurant in the Castro district, and watch my reactions – my disgust at the open displays of affection” — I was then, and am now, a True Believer Christian!  It wasn’t the love that evoked my “reactions”; rather, it was the totally inappropriate “touching,” in public.  One does not necessarily quit loving someone when they begin to walk a dark path …

I had other close friends who lived that lifestyle, but the hate within the LGBT community requires they discredit anyone who exposes any of the degenerate lifestyles – if you have loved ones in that community, the hate within it, demanding egalitarianism, is undeniable!

You and I both know – it’s so right wing! All they do is harp on news!

All they talk of is Obama’s scandals – politics, Benghazi, corruption, the economy, ObamaCare, Veteran’s long waits for treatment, Susan Rice blaming “Nakoula’s Video”, Obama’s Czars, Solandra, IRS, his raising taxes, Fast & Furious, terrorism, minimum wage, 9/11 museum, union corruption, Illegal Aliens, lack of transparency, “executive privilege”, Releasing Prisoners, control of the net, Abortion, Free Speech issues, Occupy, Hillary’s failures, “GOLDEN PARACHUTES, Pork, Derivatives, charter schools, Soros, “Too Big To Fail”, Agenda 21, the U.N., ICE, border fences, TSA, Obama’s Air Force 1 trips, . . . It just goes on and on . . .

Yup; if you want to stick your head in the sand or some other unmentionable place, and not know just who is targeting conservatives, before they come after you . . .

YUP; be afraid; be very, very afraid – - – you may just want to TURN OFF FOX News! There’s just too much truth . . .  Here’s a great example!

ANOTHER OBAMA SCANDAL — Ignored or Denied?

Pundits and talking heads, most all of ‘em missed this one!   Or was it, — that they trembled w/ fear at being the first to speak of it . . . and its implications?!?   Until now, it seems it’d been forgotten or dismissed, but that’s not even logical!  It had to be fear . . .

I await poll results to see which choice my blog readers will decide which is to be President Obama’s Legacy!  I suppose that will depend on what view is of most import – political or spiritual.

Will it be that Obama was the perfect man to bring the world to Armageddon, via giving Iran gifts a) this Drone, enabling the delivery of bombs and WMD’s into the heart of Israel, or will it be b) that he ensured God’s judgment be on us for our Genocide of continuing the violence against the most defenseless, the most innocent, those pre-born, unable to speak yet, nor make their screams heard?

Following begs the question “why this drone was ever flown into enemy territory w/o the capability to destroy it before it could fall into enemy hands – an unpardonable . . . can’t call it a mistake, or even an oversight.”

. . . this was nothing but TREASON!  And yet to come will be, . . . . the question: “who should be held accountable? “

Obama himself cannot have been that stupid!

Besides, since Harry Truman, we all know where the buck is supposed to stop . . . . Teflon or not!

The following story came from Israel’s Arutz Sheva — ‘Obama Gift’ Drone Unveiled – by Gil Ronen

Iran has unveiled a copy of the US Lockheed Martin Sentinel RQ-170 drone which it downed in 2011.  The copycat aircraft is due to take test flights soon, officials said at the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Council’s Aerospace Exhibition.

Israel’s air force only recently held maneuvers designed to deal with a sophisticated Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) threat, possibly involving UAVs that have never yet been used against Israel. It is not known if the two developments are related.   (duh)

The reverse-engineered drone manufactured by Iran was showcased next to the original US machine that was captured in northeastern Iran near the city of Kashmar about three years ago.

The exhibition, attended by the “Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution,” Ayatollah Khamenei, revealed the Iranian UAV equipped with an advanced system of data collection, video and radar telecom, Fars reports.

“Our engineers succeeded in breaking the drone’s secrets and copying them. It will soon take a test flight,” an officer said in the footage broadcast on Iranian TV. “This drone is very important for reconnaissance missions,” Khamenei said as he viewed the drone.

The original Sentinel RQ-170 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was used in US covert operations in Afghanistan from 2005 until 2007, according to the report. One of the important features of the drone is that it is hard to detect with long range radar due to its special stealth coating, making it visible only from a distance of around 40 kilometers.

In December 2011, Iran claimed to have captured it flying over Iran, which the US military acknowledged. Washington filed a formal request for Iran to return the UAV, which Iran rejected instead demanded an apology for US intelligence operation over its territory.

Although US officials never confirmed it, Iran says it used its radio electronic warfare skills and vulnerabilities in the Sentinel’s GPS receiver to trick it into landing on Iranian territory instead of its designated military base. The claims are considered plausible by many, since the drone did not sustain any visible damage during its alleged crash-landing.

US armed forces reportedly asked President Barack Obama for permission to either launch a commando raid to recover the drone, or bomb and destroy the UAV, but he declined to do either, for fear such actions would be seen as acts of war.

According to Russia’s RT news sevice, Iran has since then also hunted down two more types of UAVs, Two RQ-11s and at least one ScanEagle that had penetrated Iranian airspace from the Persian Gulf.

IAF rehearses for UAV threat

The Israel Air Force conducted a rehearsal last month for an event in which an enemy ? UAV infiltrates Israeli airspace.

Both jet fighter and combat helicopter squadrons took part in the rehearsal, and practiced interception of a UAV near Israel’s border, reported the Air Force website.

The IAF sees the threat as a growing one and the air crews rehearsed situations in which the most sophisticated UAVs in existence attempt to infiltrate – including models that Israel has never encountered.

“This year, we practiced against a different kind of UAV,” explained Captain Avi, Ground Safety Officer at Ramon Air Base. “It is more advanced, faster and can stay in the air longer than the routine UAVs, and thus poses more of a threat for the air crews.”

Besides the interceptors, the control crews also took part in the drill, as did their detection and alarm systems. It is their job to detect the small aircraft in the country’s skies, and continuously monitor them, while scrambling the intercepting jets and helicopters and directing them toward the UAV.

“The training on this specific subject is meant to deal a preventive blow,” Captain Avi explained. “This is a threat that is constantly growing, and the Air Force is not ignoring it, on the contrary, it is preparing for the moment of need.

Last year, Iranian officials announced progress on reverse-engineering the captured Sentinel drone, saying that they has completed decoding its software and extracting the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) surveillance data from it.   (Continued American schooling of Iranian students pays off again – another “duh“)

“All the memories and computer systems of this plane have been decoded and some good news will be announced in the near future not just about the RQ-170 and the optimizations that our forces have done on the reversed engineered model of this drone, but also in area of other important defense achievements,” Hossein Salami, the lieutenant commander general of Iran’s Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution said at the time.

RT adds that Iran earlier managed to present a functional copycat model of the US ScanEagle to a Russian military delegation visiting Tehran last October. Before that, in February last year, Tehran demonstrated images of a ScanEagle UAV drone production line, revealing that this low-cost, high endurance drone would provide low-altitude reconnaissance for the Iranian military.

Cheney: we should have bombed it

The Sentinel drone that was downed or malfunctioned over Iran in 2011 was a topic of political controversy at the time. Former U.S. Vice President and Defense Secretary Dick Cheney attacked President Obama for failing to protect American technology that could be learned from the drone downed in Iran.

Cheney said the drone should never have been allowed to fall into the hands of the Iranian government. “The right response would have been…to go in immediately after it had gone down and destroy it,” Cheney said. “I was told the president had three options on his desk. He rejected all of them.”

When asked on CBS if his recommendations would not lead to war with Iran, Cheney replied that Iran had already committed acts of war going back to the Hizbullah bombing of the US barracks in Beirut and that this would have been a simple mission.

Cheney was joined in his criticism by Independent Senator Joe Lieberman who lamented that the Sentinel was “an extraordinary American asset, this drone.”

He added “I think that it would have been very difficult to rescue it, but at least try to destroy it so the Iranians and anyone that they might share it with, would not have the benefit of the tech breakthroughs that it represents.”

NICE FOLKS, but . . . .

This came to me from a friend of a friend – I took the liberty to delete a couple sentences and add one (in red) of mine. By publishing this, I hope to state clearly that I believe America is under attack – by many whom are deceptive but of the same ilk!.


There are things likeable about Beck, mostly politically. I like that he stands up for what he believes.

However, the BIG problem is that he is VERY wrong when he equates Christianity and Mormonism as the same belief. In that case, he is either very deceived or is lying. I am not certain which, or if it is a little of both.

Mormonism is far removed from Christianity. Their early teachers stated that they are not the same. Mormon founder Joe Smith himself said he could do what no one else could do, not even Jesus Christ. That is a devious self-centered man who is on no accounts qualifies as a man of God or any sort of prophet! It is how cults get started. And so they did, with their wife stealing, black hating, stealing from others, and murdering others when they got to Utah.

Nice people now perhaps, but nice does not get anyone to heaven. Beck is wrong, as Mormonism is wrong. Their “Jesus” is the half brother to Lucifer. Their ‘god’ is some guy who was once a man, who had a different god before him, who had one before and so on.

Here is the other shoe dropping. Those running Liberty University now are either very deceived, or willing to lie about what is so concerning Mormonism. There are no other options.

They are a long established school, and they know better. They were once considered quite fundamental. Not any more. Now it is OK to not only allow lies, but they promote the deceivers by giving them awards and speaking highly about them to their students and guests.

Liberty allowed Beck to speak Mormon doctrine at their school. Very deceptive!

Beck is a universalist, former Roman Catholic, who turned to Mormonism.

Like some of his politics if you will, but do not mistake him for a Christian while he promotes Joseph Smith’s cult. Beck got to do what Smith never did, got Mormon lies into mainstream churches and Christian colleges. And as to Liberty, they have fallen for the lies.

I had several more articles with more info on the same topic, but this will suffice. I sent polite emails to the staff members at liberty telling them of my concern.

Mitt, . . . well he’s differently deceptive than Obama.


Glenn Beck Invokes Joseph Smith, Mormon Beliefs During Liberty University Speech
By Heather Clark

May 4, 2014

LYNCHBURG, Va. Liberty University and its president, Jerry Falwell Jr., recently invited Glenn Beck to take center stage to address thousands of students during its annual convocation ceremony, whose speech included references to Joseph Smith and Mormon theology.

The outspoken conservative talk show host, and founder of the news outlet The Blaze, compared Mormonism to Christianity during his half-hour speech and cited that the Lord gave him a message of coming back to “settle scores.€

I am Mormon and share your faith, Beck asserted during his spiritually-mixed charge to students, as he stood in front of a large banner bearing the university’s motto, ‘Training Champions’ for Christ.’

Beck was introduced by President Jerry Falwell, who noted that the university presented the political commentator with an honorary doctorate in 2010 as he likewise addressed the students during that time. Falwell remarked that the ‘Sounds of Liberty’ also performed at Beck’s ‘Restoring Honor’ event that year in Washington, which the university chancellor attended.

‘I heard him yesterday on the radio,’ Falwell remarked. ‘He probably didn’t realize this, but he was using Liberty’s verse,” sort of our motto here.’Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.’”

Beck then took the podium to applause and cheers, explaining on a lighthearted note that he ran into Falwell at Billy Graham’s birthday party earlier this year. He then fought tears as he told the audience that he believed he was given a message from God that day to share with the students.

‘Are you willing to give your life?’  Beck asked fervently. ‘What are you willing to do? What is it that means something to you?’

‘Days before Joseph Smith was martyred he was taken out by the sheriff; they tried to tar and feather him several times,’ he explained. “The last time they took him, they said, ‘You owe $25.’ He said, ‘No, I don’t owe a man anything.’ They said, ‘No, you stole a stove’ ”one of the most ridiculous charges I’ve ever heard.”

‘At that time, he reached into his pocket and pulled out his pocket watch,’ Beck continued, displaying the relic that he said belonged to Smith, considered a prophet of God in Mormonism. ‘He gave it to the sheriff and said, “I owe no man nothing.’  They let him go. They killed him, but on the warrant for his arrest, he wrote on the back of his warrant to his people, ‘Put down your guns. No matter what happens, put down your guns. Put down your guns and trust in the Lord.’”

He then compared Smith’s story to the challenges that Liberty students may face in the days ahead.

‘You are going to be pushed and challenged every step of the way,’ Beck said. ‘What is it that you truly believe?’

Later in his message, the Mormon talk show host told the students that ‘no one in the Grand Councils’ sent them to earth just to make a living. Beck was referring to the Mormon belief that human souls pre-existed in heaven, and that a gathering of heavenly beings known as the Grand Councils, send certain individuals to earth to accomplish a special purpose.

‘You didn’t come down for a job. You came to this university maybe thinking, ‘I have to have an education to get a job.’ You need this education from Liberty University because of your only true job, the purpose you were sent here for,’ he said.

Beck’s comments were met with cheers and applause during several points in his speech, and was given a standing ovation by many in attendance upon his conclusion.

Liberty University, which is considered to be the nation’s largest Christian university and whose motto is ‘Training Champions for Christ’ has been under fire for continuing to drift from biblical Christianity.

As previously reported, concerns were expressed last month after the university minimized objections to the utilization of a homosexual advocate to teach students choreography in its presentation of Mary Poppins. Many also expressed disagreement when Brandon Ambrosino, a Liberty student that came out as an open homosexual on campus, was allowed to enroll as a graduate student in Liberty’s seminary program.

Re-blogged from:

Don’t miss this article’s smoking gun!   (in red text below.)

The primal revulsion felt when one pulls back a wall or floorboard to discover an unimaginable accumulation of vermin bristling beneath is difficult to describe. Whether it’s a seething mass of scattering cockroaches, mice, or rats, even those who aren’t squeamish concerning such creatures may find themselves fighting a combination of nausea and the fight-or-flight reaction.

I sincerely hope that Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and his colleagues on the newly minted congressional select committee tasked with investigating the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, have the belly for what they will most certainly uncover if they are duly committed to finding the truth. This is because there is so much more to this debacle than most engaged conservatives know, let alone the average American news consumer.

We’ll presume for a moment that the craven protestations of Democrat politicos (like former Obama White House senior adviser David Plouffe), the limited (or at least biased) coverage this exercise is likely to garner from much of the establishment press and the impediments presented by the White House do not deter the committee in any significant sense, and that it is the committee’s will which determine the outcome.

Benghazi isn’t simply about the cover-up of a terrorist attack in order to save an election; it’s not even about gun-running, although the latter did play a large role. It’s about a nefarious foreign policy that would qualify as criminal in nature under both U.S. and international law – provided that this committee is not fainthearted in its duty.

The “smoking gun” emails recently released by the organization Judicial Watch do indeed give the lie to the White House’s deception with regard to blaming the attack on an inflammatory video, but ancillary data that have come to be known even since then make up the weapons cache from whence the smoking gun came. The entire arsenal must be brought to light, for the sake of justice and the future of this nation.

Behind the emails, the committee will be hard-pressed to examine the inconsistencies with regard to the White House and State Department having circulated their talking points to the press almost prematurely. There’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton releasing her outraged statement following the attack, making reference to telephone conversations with a president whose whereabouts that night remain unknown.

There is also Ms. Clinton’s statement itself. Given while the bodies were still warm, so to speak, it suggests the White House had the video narrative at the ready for some time. The special committee will no doubt run across other emails (such as revealed by former CBS reporter Sharyl Atkisson) that further verify the White House intent to advance the bogus video explanation to the press with vigor and alacrity. What they make of all that remains to be seen.

Behind these facts, the evidence grows even more disturbing. There is the presence of a Muslim Brotherhood operative (Obama has employed more than a few) on the distribution list of the “smoking gun” email.

Mehdi K. Alhassani, leader of the Muslim Student Association (MSA), has ties to the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC) mosque attended by the Boston Marathon bombers and other violent Islamists. Despite this, at the time of the Benghazi attack, he was a special assistant to the office of the chief of staff in the White House.

This would tend to suggest that serious coordination was executed between this White House and their Muslim Brotherhood collaborators in the Middle East.

Still more startling revelations have been provided by the Citizens Committee on Benghazi, a group consisting of well-versed former CIA and military personnel. Last month, they released a report asserting that the Obama administration intentionally allowed arms to flow to al-Qaida-linked militants who had opposed Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi.

Finally, there is the shadowy background of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, producer of “The Innocence of Muslims” (the film that was purported to have touched off the widespread Muslim unrest of Sept. 11, 2012). The Shoebat Foundation and other media have alleged that Nakoula was actually an informant for the U.S. government dating back to the Clinton years. Did he produce “Innocence” at the behest of his government handlers for the express purpose of reinforcing White House propaganda? At this juncture, it’s certainly a reasonable question.

Speaking of the Clintons, it’s also been revealed that their ties to the Muslim Brotherhood stretch back to the 1980s and is of course supported by Hillary Clinton’s relationship with Huma Abedin, her long-time assistant and deputy chief of staff when Clinton was secretary of state. Abedin’s family is practically Muslim Brotherhood royalty, with literally zero degrees of separation between them and Mohamed Morsi, Egypt’s deposed Muslim Brotherhood president.

This evidence, as well as much more than we have space to address here, is indicative of a widespread plan to undermine American national security, foreign policy and the Constitution, all the while galvanizing our government’s power over us and the personal sway of players such as the Clintons, Obama, and their political affiliates.

The extent of these machinations, both in terms of time and scope, is positively dizzying. Whether this serial treason was taken on for reasons of narcissism, power and a false sense of invulnerability (as I suspect it was for the Clintons), or due to an abiding hatred of America and the desire to see her brought low (as was most certainly the case for Obama and his mixed bag of Marxist and Islamist ideologues), it still spells serial treason.

Whether the Select Committee on Benghazi will settle for the impeachable offenses (which will be essentially worthless in the practical sense), or the treasonable ones, again, remains to be seen.

The Democrats are portraying the not-yet-even-constituted House Select Committee on Benghazi as nothing but a partisan exercise. They are even considering boycotting the hearings to delegitimize them.

Fine. Although this would give the Obama-protective media a further reason to ignore Benghazi, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is whether the committee produces new, important facts. If it does, it will be impossible to ignore.

We’ve already seen what a single piece of new evidence can do in reviving interest in a story that many (including me) thought the administration had successfully stonewalled. The “PREP CALL with Susan [Rice]” e-mail from deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes was withheld eight months until revealed by court order. It advises the U.N. ambassador to focus on an anti-Islam Internet video, thus contradicting the perennial White House claim that Rice’s blame-the-video five-show fable came just from intelligence community talking points and not from a White House in full campaign mode.

The select committee will be headed by Rep. Trey Gowdy, a skilled 16-year prosecutor. He needs to keep the hearings clean and strictly fact-oriented. Questions only, no speechifying. Every sentence by every GOP committee member must end with a question mark. Should any committee Republican instead make a declarative statement ending in a period, the chairman should immediately, by button, deliver an electric shock through the violator’s seat.

The areas of inquiry are obvious. They are three: before, during and after.


Where and to what extent was there dereliction of duty as memos, urgent pleas and mounting evidence of danger were ignored and the U.S. ambassador was allowed to enter a deathtrap?


What happened during the eight hours of the Benghazi attack, at the end of which the last two Americans (of four) were killed by mortar fire? Where was the commander in chief and where was the responsible Cabinet secretary, Hillary Clinton? What did they do?

The White House acts as if these are, alternatively, either state secrets or of no importance.

For President Obama, we have three data points. At 5 p.m. EDT, he is informed of the attack at a regular briefing with his secretary of defense and chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

At around 8 p.m., Obama spends an hour on the phone with Benjamin Netanyahu to tamp down a breaking, politically injurious story that Obama had snubbed the Israeli prime minister. The White House then issues a readout saying the two leaders had agreed there had been no snub.

So the White House is engaged in campaign damage control quite literally in the middle of the Benghazi events — at a time when Ambassador Chris Stevens is still missing and the final firefight that killed two other Americans is still three hours away. We’ve just learned that Obama was not in the Situation Room that night. Then where, doing what?

We know, finally, that at 10 p.m. Obama called Clinton — a call the White House, at first, had not reported — to get an update. What did they discuss, decide, order?

As former prosecutor Andrew McCarthy has pointed out, a half-hour later, State issued a statement deploring the video, setting the premise for the video excuse. Were Obama and Clinton working on a cover story — even before Glen Doherty had joined Tyrone Woods on the roof of the CIA annex where they were to die minutes later?

Yes, that’s speculation. Well, then, give us facts. After all, the White House provided a cascade of hagiographic facts about Obama’s involvement in the Osama bin Laden raid. Yet regarding Benghazi — the most serious operational challenge of his presidency, the 3 a.m. phone call Hillary Clinton had warned about in 2008 — he is nowhere to be seen.


We now know the White House was pushing the “video made them do it” coverup, lest the blame be placed on administration policy. Who was involved in that decision, obviously designed to protect a president campaigning that al-Qaeda was “on the run”?

What difference does it make? The difference between truth and falsehood. The difference between a brazen stonewall that is exposed and one that succeeds.

Nonetheless, these hearings are a big political risk for Republicans. Going into the 2014 election, they stand to benefit from the major issues — Obamacare, the economy, chronic unemployment — from which Benghazi hearings can only distract. Worse, if botched like previous hearings on the matter, these hearings could backfire against the GOP, as did the 1998 Clinton impeachment proceedings. On purely partisan considerations, the hearings are not worth the political risk.

But the country deserves the truth. They’ll get it if the GOP can keep the proceedings clean, factual and dispassionate. No speeches. No grandstanding. Gowdy has got to be a tough disciplinarian — especially toward his own side of the aisle.

Well guess what!

Hidden in a foul mess of family ties, married and maiden names, it turns out that our “ABORTION PRESIDENT’s Attorney General – - – Eric Holder, his wife and family are deeply involved in the abortion industry . . . don’t quit reading now; it gets worse — follow the link!

Holder4-175x192No surprise here either but  it turns out that the clinic is run by an INDICTED abortionist!

Holder’s wife Sharon Malone Holder, an OB/GYN herself, co-owns with her sister an Atlanta area abortion clinic building and the clinic’s abortionist is indicted on Medicaid charges

How would you bet?   Think that this fact possibly “shades” the lack of prosecution of abortion mills and Medicade fraud?

The butchery clinic, exploiting the poor and mixed race neighborhood, is located at 6210 Old National Highway, College Park, Georgia.   The business itself is called Old National GYN and they do things like this!  photo_17

Janet Yellen, Chairwoman of the Federal Reserve, warns congress again – present policies of  federal regulations, current spending, etc. . . .   They know all this.   Yet they are in denial and continue, like lemmings to the cliff …

If 9th grader, Marina Baer is right, (and she is) . . . Tyranny has been exposed in the local New Hampshire, school district of Gilford;  they’ve shown complete disregard of parental authority — our “all-knowing hypocritical” educational system ….

Her dad, William Baer, an attorney, spoke out against a very explicit book at the meeting.  He called the book  “pornographic” – (it’s possibly appropriate for adults, but NOT 14 year olds – high school freshman!)   Mr. Baer, was arrested!

What agenda is driving this school board?   Is it Obama’s Common Core?

All this was exposed on Fox’s KELLY FILE, last night.


“I just watched my father get arrested because he broke the (newly established) rule at a board of education meeting.   This just shows that you resort to force at the first turn of conquest, and I’m appalled! So I don’t trust you, I honestly do not feel safe around you people.” 

She shouldn’t!

At the meeting, they were prepared for her father.  They (the  school board) had imposed a 2 minute rule and her father asking the board to read a page aloud, evidently exceeded Sue Allen’s (newly imposed) allotted 2 minutes!   They wouldn’t read it aloud!   They’d made it clear – no questions, no answers, the board will not respond. 

He’d made it clear that if his daughter had to read and discuss this publicly, then there was nothing that says adults should not be able to do the same.

The principal wouldn’t; he said he didn’t feel comfortable reading it.   Mr. Baer asked him, Mr. Sorenson: “Then why should my daughter feel comfortable reading it?

When he went over the allotted time, they had Mr. Baer taken out of the meeting, in handcuffs, charging him with “disorderly conduct.” 

If this type of policy continues, you may as well turn your children over to the state, now!   Without your permission, or knowledge, they’re going to inculcate your children with the belief systems (etc) they want . . .


Of course it is – that’s what BIG GOVERNMENT is all about . . . CONTROL!  This principal and the school board should all resign . . . or be recalled.

And parents should pull their children out of this Obama-ian system – home schooling … charter schools … it’s no wonder our nation is so lost!

Every act has a consequence – every inaction as well.

The consequence for your inaction . . . “your looking-the-other-way” . . . is something you must understand – if you condone an unjustified act of violence, you have no right to NOT be confronted with the reality of it!

There’s an avowed continuing injustice and we’re all to be judged and condemned for it.

I’m only acting as one of many messengers – - -

Your sentence America? It’s eternal condemnation!”

That’s the message . . . . I convey. I know you don’t want to hear it . . . no more than I like giving it.

And granted, no one likes to view the sign I hold! Unfortunately, there’s no other way to turn this around. We’ve all been lied to, and folks truly, just don’t know what’s being done in their name and with their tax money.

There’s more to it than that though; the problem is, folks . . . YOU … really don’t want to know . . . life’s so much easier that way. You don’t want to be bothered; you want to look the other way. You don’t want to be impassioned. Life’s complicated enough and there’s so little time.

I don’t blame you, but like it or not, eventually, when it really matters, you will be held accountable. Looking at the posters I hold, . . . it makes me sick, as well.


Jessie M. approached me yesterday, the first Sunday in May. From the very first, he warned me, he was angry. I understood; everyone is.

His 8-year old daughter had seen my sign and it had scared her. He warned me he was going to take my sign and destroy it. He told me to hand it over. I refused.

I told Jessie, “if you take it and destroy it, I will resist; therefore, if you do, it’ll result in assault.”

Jessie was vehement. So am I. He understood, he’d have to hurt me bad; he gave me his name, told me I could tell the police his dash cam is on and they’d have the proof they needed right there … he was serious!

Call me a crazy old coward, but I’m now 72, old and weak …

Explaining, . . . as best I could, we talked. He saw my heart and he left w/o hurting me.

Like it or not, you must hear this too. I understand why so many flip me off as they drive by. I don’t like what I’m called to do, but because of the lies and deceptions … because of what’s coming upon us all, … I must.

I have the time now; I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t!

Jessie didn’t attack me … not yet.

But he left me w/ a warning. He said he didn’t want to see me there again; I told him, he would.

I’m not going away, and should he succeed in destroying (it’s not easy – another tried) I already have other signs.

I also told Jessie, I understood his anger – and that I wouldn’t expect anything different, from a loving, caring father, but our freedoms here allow this, and there’s no other way – we talked of all this, for several minutes.

Jessie wasn’t the first – - – he wasn’t even the first, that day …

There’ve been other Jessies, and yes, there’ll be more.

There’ll be more assaults.

You can think I’m suicidal. You can dismiss my actions, but . . . you’re the one at a higher risk!

9 days ago, outside of University Presbyterian church, I was thrown to the ground, hard, by a young man – I believe he attends there.

I understand your anger, and much to my surprise, I have come to welcome it. It’s far better than your apathy. There’s to be no more “fence-sitting.” That time is long gone.

One man at the U.P. church angrily told me: “I’ll have you know, this church, . . . it’s neither Pro-Life NOR” (he explained) “Pro-Choice!”

Surprising myself, I asked, “Then,… you’d describe your church more as … lukewarm?”

He knew what I was referring to! He walked off still angry, mumbling something condemning of me … possibly “self-righteous bastard!”

I look forward to the day when you rise up, my beloved America, angry that America has endorsed, encouraged, and legalized, the greatest genocide known to mankind ….. 57 million … and counting …….

We condemnWWII Germany? And somehow see, w/o removing the forests from our own eyes?

There have been police reports; there’ll be more … for what I show folks, angers many. I’m on the street, most days.

The pre-born’s voices are silenced, yet they scream!

You can’t … or you don’t want to listen, but you will! Best you hear it and take a stand against it . . . before you’re held accountable!

Again, you can dismiss this old man’s actions with an easy comment – “he’s got a hero complex” or “he’s suicidal” but you’ve been warned before . . . again, you will be held accountable — you didn’t listen then either!

One final comment: It’s very “telling” that Jessie’s 8 year old daughter … all of our children know how wrong this is — it seems, our children know, even more-so than we do!

The signs:  CS02-232x300 (2)  CS04-232x300

I ask you to join me.  It’s time we fill America’s streets! Be prepared, if you do.  Liberals feel there is a “RIGHT” to not be confronted with what they condone, and there is violence out there – our battle is with principalities and Powers!  You too can purchase and prepare these large signs for the street; go here.

The attached video is about two dead Vietnam pilots whose bodies were recovered in the last two years – lives  given in service of their nation.

Because of budget cuts, the current Obama administration declined the request for a flyover during the funeral. Civilian pilots then filled the gap with a heartwarming response.  No mention need be made of the current investigation of Phoenix Veteran’s  hospitals and the continuous inappropriate treatment of our servicemen – that’s more than apparent.

Yet somehow, there always seems to be enough money for the Air Force to fly the Obama family all around the world on an endless string of vacations.

Riots are predicted (or just possible?) in Seattle again today – nothing new.   The financial district is on High Alert, but only because they don’t want to be caught napping . . . like Boston.

Riots’ve happened before, and they’ll happen again; protests are more common here, than Baskin Robbin’s ice cream parlors.

IWWBut here in the Pacific Northwest, a haven of Communist activity, no one seems to connect the dots!  Let’s allow them to do that for us – note that this link is directly to the old Communist Union – Workers of the World!

Trying to educate their own, as regular folks (albeit too young to know the history) these LEFTISTS now with no fear, publish this themselves!

No surprise here either — it’s the “same-ol’-same-ol” Occupy Crowd, (they admit being “socialist” but …) I find it interesting that no one seems interested in exposing the Communist roots.

Read down in the article of that link – you’ll find some of the same language used by Occupy!

Obama’s support of the increase of the minimum wage, is playing both ends against the middle –  parallel to the Socialists inciting violence over other issues, - or like the financial “slowdown” resulting in decreased work hours.

This below, in italics, is from yet another site:

Also, it’s no coincidence that the minimum-wage battle failed to pass yesterday!   Barack’s from Chicago, after all!   Will that be what brings them into the streets?

The White House did send out an email last night alerting (spinning) his supporters that the failure of this bill was the fault of Republicans … (though Dem’s crossed over) that at the same time billionaire Democrats (exposed on Fox’s Kelly File) were “strategizing”.

Subsequently, the May Day Riots of 1894 occurred. In 1904, the International Socialist Conference meeting in Amsterdam called on “all Social Democratic Party organizations and trade unions of all countries to demonstrate energetically on May First for the legal establishment of the 8-hour day, for the class demands of the proletariat, and for universal peace.” The congress made it “mandatory upon the proletarian organizations of all countries to stop work on May 1, wherever it is possible without injury to the workers.”[8]

In many countries, the working classes sought to make May Day an official holiday, and their efforts largely succeeded. May Day has long been a focal point for demonstrations by various socialist, communist and anarchist groups. In Germany, May Day coincides with Walpurgisnacht.[9] May Day has been an important official holiday in countries such as the People’s Republic of China, North Korea, Cuba and the former Soviet Union. May Day celebrations typically feature elaborate popular and military parades in these countries [citation needed].

As I’m standing in front of Planned Parenthood, holding a graphic sign. It depicts the awful violence performed on an innocent 10 week old fetus, I find myself wondering .. just who these men are, and why they’re so heavily invested in seeing abortion continue!

Certainly they’ve no functioning conscience, they’re cold and detached, focused on their own, self-serving, hedonistic world — but that’s obvious.  CS04-232x300Some of them, I assume, are just immature and it happens to be they’ve just not thought through what they feel and why they feel the way they do.

That seems especially true of the more than a dozen young teen “men” across the street from me.

They who whoop and holler @ the signs … now, when they see the huge 3′ wide by 4′ high posters – but at first, they seemed pensive, quiet, . . . even thoughtful, walking off by themselves to get a better view of each one I brought out.

But during the day, things changed; these, minimum wage young men wash a hundred or so cars for the Audi / VW car lot down the street — University Audi, and now, things have accelerated into a sort of “mob-mentality.

When I continue to stand there, and am not driven away, by the derisive comments which they shout (it’s probably a good thing I cannot hear well anyway.)  Then, when their participation became part of a “mob mentality,” I realized, they’re “on-the-clock” which mitigates / prevents, I suppose, more of a ‘physical’ response …

The first man that approached me there, that Monday morning, was a neighbor. He was working on his empty rental, business-front property, making it more presentable. His motivation was only obvious as he told me, “you can’t do that here! It’s illegal!”

Renting, with Planned Parenthood as a neighbor, and protestors out front . . .

Last week, back in White Center, that was almost the exact same words the security guy from Roxy’s Casino mouthed … He got on his radio and told his boss I wasn’t leaving, that I’d informed him what I was doing was legal and to feel free to call the cops and complain.

I assume it was the boss that appeared moments later, positioning his car oddly, … in a way so as to send a few feet of gravel flying my way as he burned a few dollars worth of rubber off his tires . . .

What occurs to me is, it seems that these men, … those so “pro-choice” … if their lady realizes her aborted fetus was actually a child, all it may mean to them is:
1. an end to free, unfettered sex
2. possibly, an end to their relationship,
3. a loss of business to their establishment, or even
4. pressure to get married which has little chance to survive in light of the violence already a part of their history

But it’s an equal number of women who flip the bird at me as they drive by, and they do it w/o hesitation … another question arises in my mind – have they had abortions?

Post-traumatic abortion is a heavy thing! I know personally.  I pray as I’m there, that my sign’s presence initiates the needed healing progress to begin for them, if that’s the case … and if not, I pray it makes a potentially future patron of “Planned Parenthood” realize the horrific violence … they’d be causing — that the amazing 10 – 11 week old “fetus” pictured, is actually a little human, . . . not just “a blob of flesh”!

Prayer for them, … is essential and it fills me these afternoons!

Guess that goes for the men too. That seems to me, to be why I’m beginning to be assaulted – the men – they’re inherently more prone to it.  There’s no rational, legitimate, peaceful response!

The sign is hard to look at . . . and it must evoke some type of response!

Most of the verbal responses are telling me the sign is disgusting – they’re right; it is.

My responses, run the full gamut – I don’t quite understand why it differs so from one time to another.

I try to remain in prayer during the entire time … but I get distracted.  At times, I guess, it depends on the intonations of their comments as they roll down the window to speak to me, or just to yell something unintelligible as they go by.

I try to tell those who don’t understand, “as long as the horrific violence is hidden, … it’ll continue!”

One black gal in the passenger seat today opened her window and said “take that down! It’s my daughter’s birthday today; I don’t need to see that!”

I said in reply – “I know; I have a hard time looking at it too. It’s just that if the folks don’t see the violence, it’ll continue, and this … needs to end!”

Her response?   It was surprising — “I hear ya.  You’re right there!”

It’s a big city, after all – everyone’s different. It is interesting … some want to kill the messenger; some don’t get why I’m here, but I’m learning – as my lovely, beloved Sharon reminds me, “a soft answer turns away wrath”.

It was yesterday, when I was first really assaulted.  The others were minor.

A young man, seemed to be reaching for my 2 signs.   I moved them just out of his reach.   He took me by both shoulders and violently threw me to the ground – hard!  Having ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease, I have little muscle tone left to resist such attacks.   I believe he came from the church I was holding my signs in front of – it happened so quickly, I couldn’t tell for sure – he came from that direction but I’d not seen him exit.  And of course, he didn’t stick around – he walked off like a fascist coward . . .

Now, I guess, would be a good time for me to look back again … 37 years ago, when I took my beloved daughter for an abortion.

All I wanted for her, . . . was a chance at a better life!   She’d followed in my inept footsteps and descended into a thoughtless sexual relationship, found herself pregnant and ran away from her mom’s.   I couldn’t handle seeing her pain.  I loved her so – I still do!!!

Taking her for an abortion was compounding one tragedy with another!

She probably doesn’t realize why she refuses to talk to me, …   To this day I carry the pain, having to love her from afar … as I continue to grieve … almost 4 decades of pain …

… mistakes … we all make ‘em … but do we continue to learn from ‘em?   And do we attempt to give back?

Written by an anonymous Marine Veteran and REBLOGGED here. Go here for Pt I

The American Dream ended (on November 6th) in Ohio . The second term of Barack Obama will be the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind.

A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays, Government Workers, Union Members, Environmental Extremists, The Media, Hollywood , uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell’s America .

The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch… The Pit Bull is in the back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod, along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the New World Order.

Our side ran two candidates who couldn’t even win their own home states, and Chris Christie helped Obama over the top with a glowing “post Sandy ” tribute that elevated the “Commander-in-Chief” to Mother Teresa status. (Aside: with the way the polls were run, he didn’t need any help!)

People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.

You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates & shy not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.

Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to “white guilt” and political correctness…

(RE-BLOGGED FROM ERIC RUSH’S COLUMN) // Link below // My few additional comments are in red italics

Last week, talk-show host and budding media mogul Glenn Beck excoriated those among the supporters of government-beleaguered rancher Cliven Bundy who were “crying for revolution, insurrection and a call to arms,” admonishing anyone of that mindset to stop listening to him and following him on social media. He also articulated that those among his fans who took exception to his criticism of some Bundy supporters were not real fans.

Beck has done a lot of great work, and I support and admire his call to follow God and the ethos of men like Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mohandas Gandhi, but I do have a problem with his delivery and the practical application of his message to real-life, real-time situations such as that which Cliven Bundy and his family faced.

In truth, I believe that Beck probably alienated more people than he may have intended. It’s not the first time – I quit following Beck when he supported Mitt, when he could not win.

Now, it’s clear that there were some dedicated knuckleheads among those who assembled at the Bundy Ranch, some of those who proposed using women and children as human shields, for example. However, the broadcaster’s blanket criticism of the demonstrators’ deportment and their relative disorganization came off as somewhat impulsive, and even conceited.

Beck maintained that he didn’t think grazing rights were a sufficient cause to challenge the federal government in such an overt manner and pointed out that the catalyst for the affair was the rancher failing to pay duly owed grazing fees.

Here I must take exception. As someone who regularly details the federal government’s overreach and incremental inculcation of big-government progressivism into its policies over the last hundred years, Beck has to know that the plethora of laws and regulations implemented in this area relate directly to the kind of control against which he speaks on a daily basis. Cliven Bundy is the last of nearly 60 ranchers in that Nevada county who have been driven out of business over the last several decades due to government over-regulation.

Having lived in the Southwest U.S. for many years now, the strategy behind the federal government’s policies with regard to small farmers and ranchers has become clear to me, primarily because it has produced one clear result: Small ranchers, farmers and agricultural operations of all kinds have not been able to survive the summary regulatory constraints, fees and new laws enacted on various pretexts by government agencies, bureaus and administrations. In some cases, ideologically aligned state and local governments have colluded with the federal government in advancing said constraints.

In the end, I believe all that is intended to remain will be megalithic agribusiness entities that will pay the same fealty to the federal government as those industries that have already been similarly corrupted.

If the federal government intends to control everything – which has become painfully evident – why are we ignoring its blatant efforts to control our food supply?

That, my friend, is the crux of the matter – that leaves no other explanation.  Look at the recent laws in places as well as Agenda 21, and the FEMA ‘staging’ of control vehicles around the nation !

Senate Majority Leader (and as it would happen, land-grabbing wheeler-dealer) Harry Reid has called Cliven Bundy’s supporters “domestic terrorists” and misrepresented them as well as Bundy with regard to their view of federal authority. If President Obama embodies the diabolical Manchurian President, clandestinely working to destroy America (which he most certainly does), Reid embodies the imperious, smug, progressive elite whose concept of government is so antithetical to our nation’s founding principles that crimes against the Constitution are, for him, a matter of his daily routine.

If not Bundy, then who? If not now, when? If we won’t stand up for a small rancher’s grazing rights, then I would like to know where this imperceptible line, beyond which government encroachment will allow Americans to act, is. Not necessarily in the vein of armed insurrection, but in the fashion of Cliven Bundy’s supporters, even if they aren’t as organized as one of Beck’s rallies. Do we wait until a family is slaughtered because they opened fire on government agents executing an illegal raid on their home? Do we wait until Department of Homeland Security operatives come around to arrest “domestic terrorists” as designated by Harry Reid and ship them (us) off to FEMA camps?

I am very much in agreement with Mr. Beck that American patriots must align themselves with God, as did the founders, and that prayer and peaceful assembly are integral to our struggle against tyranny.

A cadre of Bible-toting, hymn-chanting prayer warriors at the Bundy Ranch probably would have been a stellar idea, in fact.

But I also know that Beck is an ardent supporter of the Second Amendment for a reason, and that when jack-booted government thugs appear at one’s doorstep, praying them away might not quite cut it.

Aborted babies are being incinerated to provide electricity in the United States

Originally posted on The Matt Walsh Blog:


After reports a few weeks ago that aborted babies are burned to heat hospitals in the UK, today we get this:

The remains of aborted humans are being shipped to a US power facility, in order to provide electricity to Oregon residents.

The British Colombia Health Ministry has confirmed that ‘medical waste’ is sent to our country to be converted to electricity in waste-to-power plants. ‘Medical waste,’ in this brave new world of ours, includes amputated limbs, cancerous tissue, and the bodies of murdered children.

I don’t have any long tirade for you. I just need you to understand what’s happening here in your one nation under God. We are incinerating slaughtered babies so that we can charge our iPhones and power our televisions.

If we displace a few caribou to build a pipeline, or disadvantage a couple of dolphins to drill for oil, the public outrage cannot be contained. The cries of injustice…

MurderedAtAuschwitz230x150-(Re-Blogged from http://Aish.Com)
 I did not survive – I was murdered at Auschwitz.
My name is Yechiel Michoel Friedman. I was “murdered” at Auschwitz. I did not die at Auschwitz. I was “murdered” at Auschwitz.
None of you know me. None of the people in this room have ever met me; not even my own grandson, Ben Brafman, who many of you know, has ever met me. I have authorized my grandson to speak for me, because although I was murdered, I was not silenced. You must be reminded of my life and of my murder – not my death – my murder. The murder of my family – of your family – of so many families…
This is my story – a true story. A sad, horrific story.
My story, like so many of your stories, has a wonderful beginning, a very terrible middle and a tragic, horrible end that Baruch Hashem was not really the end, because although I and part of my family were brutalized and murdered, a part of my family miraculously survived – and because some did survive, my grandson is here to speak for me, to tell you “my” story, his grandfather’s story, my life story and my death story. The story of a life that was brutally taken from me, from my beautiful wife, Malka, my beautiful, sweet daughter, Sima, her young, handsome husband, Yaakov and their baby, my granddaughter, my “first” granddaughter, Chaya Sarah, my little Chaya Sarah, who at two years old was ripped screaming from her mother’s arms and thrown into an oven at Auschwitz as if she did not matter.
I speak to tell you that my little Chayala did matter, we all mattered.
Nazi killers murdered my Chayala and 1.5 million other Jewish children.
Chaya Sarah was the only grandchild I ever knew and I loved her as only a grandfather can love a grandchild and Nazi killers murdered her, my Chayala and 1.5 million other Jewish children. They took our nachas – our life and our joy and our hope. They took our babies and turned them into ashes.
Today, I speak to you as a neshama, as a soul from heaven, where I and millions of my brothers and sisters sit in a special place of honor reserved for us, for those you call Kedoshim – holy ones – whose lives were taken only because we were Jews, brutally taken less than 70 years ago, when a whole country became dominated by savages, while a civilized world stood by and through its silence, said that it was “okay to smash the head of a two year old child and then, while she was still alive, throw her screaming in terror into a burning oven, that it was okay to gas and cremate – to murder her parents and grandparents.” A civilized, cultured nation did this and a civilized world watched it happening and did nothing to stop our slaughter.
The world heard our screams but did not care, the world smelled our burning flesh but turned away – the world heard my Chayala screaming for her mother and did nothing, because Chayala was a Jewish child and at that time – the systematic murder of Jewish children – undertaken in an efficient, organized manner by monsters in government-issued uniforms -was okay. Indeed, it was encouraged, applauded. The murderers were honored with medals, applauded as heroes for killing our children – for killing my grandchild.
How did this happen to us? When did our world turn so bitter and dark?
I remember our life before Auschwitz, a good life, a quiet, pious life, centered around my family, my wife, Malka, our daughters, Sima, Ruchele, Hencha, Hnda, my sweet little boy, Meir, Sima’s husband, Yaakov, and their baby, my zeis little Chayala.
We lived in a small town in Czechoslovakia, Kiviash, right near the Hungarian border. I was a learned man, a Hebrew teacher. Our family was a good family. We were poor, but respected. We were honest, kind, sweet people who lived among other respected, soft-spoken, wonderful families. We had no enemies.
I never even raised my voice in anger, never, until that day in Auschwitz, when they murdered my grandchild, then the world heard me, but did not listen, when they tried so hard to destroy my family. I screamed so loud, I cried so hard and long, but the murder continued. The smoke and gas roared and now I am still angry. Now, I raise my voice again, not to complain, but so that you will remember – so that you can wake up, because what happened to my family can happen again, it is happening again!
Today, less than 70 years later, monsters are again threatening and murdering Jewish families, murdering our beautiful children – just last month in Israel, in Itamar, the Fogel family was massacred and again, beautiful, little, innocent children were butchered because they were Jews.
Udi and Ruth Fogel murdered because they were Jews! Their children, Yoav, age 11, Elad, age 4 and Hadas, age 3 months – slaughtered!! Their throats slit while they slept in their own beds.
You must know the terror, not only to make you sad and angry, but to make you vigilant.
So I need to tell you about my own murder. I need to relive for you my horror, my terrible loss, so that you will understand and remember, so that you will feel the Shoah – what the world refers to as the Holocaust. It needs to be real for those of you who were not there. It is more than a word – Shoah. You must know the terror, not only to make you sad and angry, but to make you vigilant.
If I upset you tonight, good! If my frankness and the terrifying description of brutal murder gives you nightmares tonight – good. I want you to be afraid and sad and angry and bitter and aware – but I also want you to be proud, because the end of my own story, although sad, was not the end.
Be comforted in the knowledge that “they did not win.” The Nazi murderers killed me and millions of Jews like me, but they did not win. They did not murder my whole family, or your whole family. The murderers and their army of monsters did not murder the Jewish people, they did not end Klal Yisrael – they made us stronger.
Jews are alive today. Israel is strong today, my family, your families, are here today, and we must keep reminding the world about our parents, grandparents, great grandparents and the children, who were gassed and cremated.
My family is alive today to help you understand the quality of hate that can allow a country to burn and gas and bludgeon newborns, infants and toddlers; to machine gun them and throw them into mass graves or onto trucks and then while still alive, toss them into large ovens, or used while conscious and awake – for vicious, cruel medical experiments.
So many children, small Kinderlach screaming for their Mommy and Tattie, for Bobbie and Zayde – can you hear them? Their screaming is so loud – I can still hear my Chayala, 70 years later. Can you hear them? Can you hear your family members? The families you never got to meet or know. Can you hear their screams?
When you are in bed waiting to fall asleep, listen hard. If you try, you will hear them in your head and in your heart.
Listen and you will also hear 12-year-old Tamar Fogel who, returning to her home in Itamar, after an Oneg Shabbat Friday night, only a few weeks ago, found her parents murdered, her three month old baby sister, Hadas, with her throat slit. Can you hear Tamar screaming? All of us, all the way up here in Heaven heard her screams; you should be able to hear her just across the ocean, her screams for her family, for every Jew whose child – whose life has been viciously taken just because they were Jewish.
It is almost impossible to imagine so much murder and torture and starvation, but you must.
The difficulty in speaking about such horror and about so much grief is that it is so hard. It is almost impossible for the mind to process so much terrible information, it is almost impossible to make someone understand something so bad, it is hard to even imagine so much murder and torture and starvation, but you must.
I will help you. I am going to be graphic and brutal, because it is the only way to make you get it, for you to really understand what it means when we say Holocaust – or Shoah – or talk about 6 million kedoshim.
I am standing in the gas chamber naked with hundreds of innocent Jews. My wife, Malka, whose terrified eyes were already dead, is next door holding our daughter, Sima. Sima’s husband, Yaakov, is with me. We have already watched our Chayala cremated. We are already dead – the gas will just kill us again.
We know we are not in a shower. We know we are in a gas chamber. We know we are going to die and we all know that we did nothing wrong and we also know that a civilized world did this to us, that a civilized world abandoned us.
We are afraid to die, of the brutal, choking, burning death that is upon us, but we are so much more afraid that nobody will ever know that we lived, that nobody will ever know that we were a good family; that we had beautiful, good children and that we had a beautiful grandchild. I was so afraid that nobody would ever know; that nobody in my family or in anyone else’s family would survive; that the “final solution” was really going to be final. Let me tell you something….
You think you know about prayer – you think you know about faith because you are religious or because you pray every day?
Let me tell you about real prayer, about real belief – in my gas chamber, as gas filled our lungs, as flames burned off our skin, we screamed “Ani Maamin,” we believe in you Hashem.
With our dying breath we screamed, “Shema Yisrael Hashem Elokenu Hashem Echad” – my last words screamed through gas filled lungs, as I died, so afraid that my entire family had been, or soon would be, murdered.
What wrenching sadness, what anger rose in my heart and raged through my mind – I pleaded to Hashem, not to be spared, but for nekama, for revenge! How, when, who would ever make this right, or get even for us, who would be alive to say Kaddish for us – to light a candle on our Yahrzeit – no graves, no headstones – no one alive to mourn our death – to even know of our life.
Well, I am not here tonight in person. Yechiel Michoel Friedman was murdered at Auschwitz, but we were not all murdered that day, or the next day and some of my children, some of your children did survive and today, our children, our grandchildren, our great-grandchildren and now even our great-great-grandchildren are alive. We live in the United States and all over the world as proud Jews, and we have the Land of Israel – do you hear that, Nazi murderers? We have Israel, a nation built by survivors. We have a Jewish army and a Jewish state. Our people are strong. We have powerful, eloquent voices demanding to be heard.
My daughters, Hencha and Hinda, who were tortured for years, did not die and my daughter, Ruchele, who at age 15 escaped to America, married Shlomo Brafman, who also escaped – they did not die and their children and my grandchildren and great-grandchildren are growing up as Shomer Shabbos Jews and tonight, my grandson is speaking for me in a shul with 1,000 proud, strong Jews who came to remember all of us tonight.,
I do not have my life, but I have my revenge.
So I do not have my life, but I have my revenge. In fact, my little boy, Meir, who they tried so hard to murder, he lived too. At age 16, he weighed 45 lbs. when found alive in a pile of corpses at Auschwitz.,
When liberated, he went to Israel, to Israel, where for 50 years he was a soldier in Tzahal – Israel’s army. A Jewish hero, he fought for 50 years in Israel’s army. My son, my Kaddish, he did not die in Auschwitz either. How proud I was to watch as he put on the uniform of an Israeli soldier to fight for our country, a Jewish community.,
They Will Not Win
I am very sad and very angry and bitter that I did not get to enjoy the world of nachas that was mine, a world of nachas and pride and Yddishkeit that I had a right to live through and enjoy.,
The Nazis hurt me beyond words, but they did not win.,
Ladies and gentlemen, they only win if you forget – or now, if you allow the world to deny. They only win if we do not cry real tears when we hear about the slaughter of the Fogel family in Itamar.,
They only win if you cannot hear my Chayala screaming or feel the terror of Tamar Fogel, or her grandparents who must now face a quality of grief so savage that it is hard for you to grasp.,
Trust me – I know about the murder of a child and a grandchild and how that impacts on everything else. How everything else is forever shrouded in death and overwhelming sadness. The Fogel family will never recover but they cannot be forgotten.,
Here we are in a beautiful shul, with so many Jews. Good Jews. Strong, proud people who have not forgotten us, me, my family, your families – the parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, the children, the grandchildren – the babies who were murdered and gassed and buried alive.
It is okay to cry for what we lost, for what was taken from you, for the lives lost, the nachas of family we were deprived of.
Cry for us. We cry for you too, for what you lost, for the family you never met, for the millions of good, sweet Jews who did not live – for the students who never finished their studies, for the scientists and artists and musicians and teachers and Rebbes who never got the chance to excel, to perform, to teach, to cure, to live.
It’s okay to cry for the children who never got to play, or sing, or laugh, who were put to death with such violence, with so much hatred that I cannot describe it in words as for certain levels of grief, there are no words. It is so bad that it cannot even be imagined by any decent human being, impossible to process rationally.
But you must, because today, people are already questioning whether the Holocaust really happened. World leaders and scholars are already denying the Holocaust; they are challenging even the integrity of a handful of survivors, the eyewitnesses who are still alive, those who saw the horror with their own eyes. Even these heroic survivors are being doubted and am so afraid that in coming years, vicious, anti-Semitic revisionists will tamper with history and the truth and we cannot – you cannot allow that to happen ever – never…
If our memory is really to be for a blessing, then you must remember.
I had a granddaughter, a charming, beautiful little baby girl named Chaya Sarah and she was murdered in front of my eyes and although her neshama, her soul, is in heaven with me, her memory must be emblazoned in your hearts forever.
If our memory is really to be for a blessing, for our neshamos to really have the aliyah you ask for, an aliyah we have earned and paid so dearly for, then you must remember.
You must make certain that your children and their children understand what happened to their family, to your family, to all of our families, or it will happen again.
You think it cannot happen again? Why? Because you have good lives – you live in civilized times? We had a good life – we lived in civilized times. We were happy and complacent, but we were not vigilant and we walked right into a Holocaust.
Our neighbors, an entire nation of ordinary men and women of intelligence and breeding and culture turned into monstrous, murderous animals who withdrew from humanity and imposed a level of brutality on us that cannot now be described and could not then, ever have been predicted – but that is exactly what happened.
It was even worse than the worst true story that any survivor can report, because the brain is not capable of capturing so much grief without exploding, so even those who survived, who saw it all, cannot fully capture the full horrific ordeal, the vicious detail.
Only a victim like me, only someone who did not survive, can tell you the whole, bad, ugly, demented, terrible truth about our murder, of 6 million murders.
That, my friends, is why I chose to speak to you through my grandson from my seat in heaven and although Hashem does not permit me to tell you “why” these terrible things happened, I am commanded to discuss “what” happened.
To tell you “what” happened with clarity and force, so that hopefully some people in this room will never doubt the Shoah and you will take it upon yourself to confront anyone who dares to deny it and make them hear my story – your story, the sad but true stories of our families, whom we too often refer to as the “6 Million,” but rarely if ever refer use their names.   We have names. Our lives were taken, but they cannot take our names.
My name is Yechiel Mechoel Friedman. I was murdered at Auschwitz with my wife, Malka and my daughter, Sima, her husband, Yaakov Weiss and my granddaughter, Chaya Sarah.
Can you see them? I see them and I also see Tamar Fogel and the bodies of her family being carried through Itamar for burial; not 70 years ago – last month. People with names and lives taken in the dark – only because they were Jews.
My name is Yechiel Michoel Friedman. I was murdered in Auschwitz. Don’t you ever forget me.

Published as “Syrian Jihadis ‘Take Aim’ at Christian Toddler” in FrontPage Magazine

April 22, 2014 by Raymond Ibrahim

“Our youngest hostage from among the hostile sects of Kessab.”

“Our youngest hostage from among the hostile sects of Kessab.”

When it comes to Muslim persecution of Christians, increasingly the past is a blueprint to the present.

According to Sham Times and other Arabic websites, jihadi social media networks posted the above picture of a child sitting on the ground while surrounded by armed men pointing their rifles at him.

The caption appearing with the picture, purportedly posted by a supporter of the Free Syrian Army, is “Our youngest hostage from among the hostile sects of Kessab.”

(“I ask you: Which side are you on? … Which side do you support?”)

Kessab is a predominantly Christian Armenian village in Syria near the Turkish border. Earlier it was invaded by jihadis, who terrorized, pillaged churches, and prompted some 2000 residents to flee. Initial reports had stated that about a dozen families remained as hostages.

Since the picture appeared on Arabic social media, many have expressed shock and outrage, condemning the Syrian “rebels,” while others cast doubt on the authenticity of the picture.

Of course, those wondering what the jihadis have to gain from taking such a picture and making it public would do well to remember that these are the same “rebels” who decapitate people and wave their severed and bloodied heads in front of cameras while smiling; these are the same “freedom fighters” who literally eat their victims on camera.

Surely “teasing” an infidel toddler – a subhuman – with their rifles and sharing it with their sadistic comrades via the Internet for a “laugh” should not be too surprising?

Nor is such behavior unprecedented. All one need do is consider the following excerpt based on real events from Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s classic work, The Brothers Karamazov, to appreciate how the present mirrors the past:

These Turks took a pleasure in torturing children, too; cutting the unborn child from the mother’s womb, and tossing babies up in the air and catching them on the points of their bayonets before their mothers’ eyes. Doing it before the mothers’ eyes was what gave zest to the amusement.

Here is another scene that I thought very interesting. Imagine a trembling mother with her baby in her arms, a circle of invading Turks around her. They’ve planned a diversion: they pet the baby, laugh to make it laugh. They succeed, the baby laughs. At that moment a Turk points a pistol four inches from the baby’s face. The baby laughs with glee, holds out its little hands to the pistol, and he pulls the trigger in the baby’s face and blows out its brains. Artistic, wasn’t it?

By the way, Turks are particularly fond of sweet things, they say.
