WHY ARE WE FEEDING & FUNDING ISIS?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

OBAMA’s NEW IDENTITY CRISIS


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

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

He said ‘How should I do that?‘.

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

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

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

And Obama said ‘I don’t have a clue’.

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

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


Here’s the other shoe being dropped . . .

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WMD’s — NOW IN THE HANDS OF ISIS


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

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

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

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

 ~   ~   ~

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

OBAMA’S EBOLA CZAR


REVISED:  See new article

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Career — Capitol Hill

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

Obama administration –

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

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

OBAMA STILL BLAMING OTHERS!


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

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

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

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

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

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

Losing the blame game

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

EBOLA: WHY the PROPAGANDA?


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

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

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

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

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

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

Provoking comments!

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

Then, carefully read: Matthew – note the warnings.

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

LIBERALISM: A Mental Disorder


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What lie, you ask?

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

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

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

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

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

The Snare:

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

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

NEW EBOLA CASE IN U.S.


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

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

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

Mainstream media is … actually covering this issue.

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

              QUESTIONS:

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

NEW STUDIES ON MARIJUANA


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I’ve moved a few to the beginning … just for the sake of interest.pot art 3

PREPARE! ARM YOURSELVES


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

POT vs ENVIRONMENT


Marijuana’s Anti-Environmentalists “RE-BLOGGED”

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

By Peter Hannaford – 10.9.14       American Spectator

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PHARMACEUTICALS & DEPRESSION


brain-1aReblogged – from my June 2011 blog.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DRUGS FROM YOUR GARDEN


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

There are a myriad of examples:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

EPIDEMICS IN AMERICA – The Beginning Of Sorrows


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

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

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

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

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

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

All this ought to bring pause . . .

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

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

All these are the beginning of sorrows.

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

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

Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.

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

USING “TERROR” AGAINST ISLAM


Pershing

WHAT allah DEMANDS


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

HOLDER’S LEGACY: NOT JUST RACISM


eric_holder_oped--300x300

“REBLOGGED”: FROM: FRONTPAGE.COM

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As Emanuel co-wrote Obamacare and recently said:

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE WAR ON POVERTY: 50 years of failure


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

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

RATIONAL ARGUMENTS: Who’s Afraid?


untitled (9)Show Your ID   –  A good argument…

Az. Gov. Jan Brewer

 

Yes, you have to love an American like her!Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vs. the Phoenix Suns owner

untitled (8)

The owner of the Phoenix Suns basketball team, Robert Sarver, came out strongly opposing AZ’s new immigration laws. Arizona’s Governor, Jan Brewer, released the following statement in response to Sarver’s criticism of the new law:

“What if the owners of the Suns discovered that hordes of people were sneaking into games without paying? What if they had a good idea who the gate-crashers are but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed to ask these folks to produce their ticket stubs, thus non-paying attendees couldn’t be ejected.

Furthermore, what if Suns’ ownership was expected to provide those who sneaked in with complimentary eats and drink? And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured, the Suns had to provide free medical care and shelter?”

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer

Remember; legal citizens must show ID:

  1. When pulled over by police
  2. Getting credit card
  3. Dr. apt.

WAR WITH ISIS WIDENS … Already?!


Sky News Reports / (CNN, as well): Israel says it has shot down a Syrian fighter jet over its airspace – the first such incident in more than 30 years.

The aircraft was hit by a Patriot missile while trying to “infiltrate” the Quneitra area of the Golan Heights, the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) said. An Israeli defence source identified the jet as a Russian-built Sukhoi Su-24 fighter plane. Previously it was reported to have been a MiG-21 aircraft.

It flew 800 metres into Israeli airspace and tried to return to Syria after the Patriot missile was fired, he said. The crew managed to abandon the plane in time and landed in Syrian territory, he added.

The Golan area, which Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war, has seen clashes between the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front and Syrian President Bashar al Assad’s forces in recent weeks. Syrian state TV confirmed Israel had shot down one of its planes, and described it as an act of aggression.

It quoted a military source saying the attack came “in the framework of (Israel’s) support for the terrorist (Islamic State) and the Nusra Front”. Israel’s Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon said the aircraft had crossed into Israel in a “threatening way” and vowed to retaliate to any similar incidents in the future. “We will not allow (any) element, whether it is a terror group or a state, to threaten our security and breach our sovereignty,” he said. “We are committed first and foremost to ensure the security of the Israel’s citizens and we will use all means at our disposal to do so.”

It came hours after the US and five Arab countries began airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Syria for the first time.

The raids were carried out using fighter jets, bombers, drones, and Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from US ships in the Persian Gulf and Red Sea.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Bahrain and Qatar were involved in the raids, a US official said, although their exact roles were unclear.

3 ISRAELI TEEN’S MURDERERS “ELIMINATED”


From: Arutz Sheva // First Publish: 9/23/2014, 7:26 AM

img522658

Murdered (L to R): Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Sha’ar, Naftali Frankel  //  Photos – courtesy of their families

Marwan Kawasmeh and Amer Abu Eisha of Hevron, who abducted and murdered three yeshiva boys Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Sha’ar, Naftali Frenkel in June, were located and killed in exchange of gunfire early Tuesday morning.

The operation was carried out by the Yamam, a special unit of the Border Police, and the IDF, in Hevron. An attempt was made to arrest the suspects but an exchange of fire developed in which they were killed.

The operation was made possible by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), which located the murderers’ hideout. In the last few days, several Hamas suspects were arrested and questioned on the assumption that they were assisting the fugitives.

“We have been pursuing these two since the abduction,” said Judea and Samaria Division Commander Brig. Gen. Tamir Yadai. “Last night the investigation ripened as regards their location and we have been surrounding the place where they were hiding since 1:00 a.m. We killed them and there are arrests of several other collaborators.”

“We began arresting suspects and at the same time we applied [IDF] ‘pressure cooker’ protocol on the house. It is a big house and they hid out in a secret arms store on the basement floor. The floor is not visible from the outside. At one stage they went outside and opened fire. One was shot and the other fell inside, into a hole.”

“There was use of weapons, like hand grenades and the deployment of explosives that were prepared ahead of time,” he added. “We know that they have been staying in this location quite a lot in the last few days. We know for certain that they were not here the whole time. They had weapons like M-16s, a Kalachnikov and handguns, too.”

Kawasmeh’s close relative Hussam was arrested in Jerusalem in August for planning the attack, which was carried out physically by Marwan, along with Amer Abu-Eisha.

The abduction and murder reportedly was planned by a third Kawasmeh, Mahmoud, along with Hussam, under the support of Hamas’s military branch, the Al-Qassam Brigades, through their branches both in Gaza and abroad.

The Brigades transferred funds via Mahmoud to purchase a car with an Israeli license plate, weapons and hideouts which were arranged in advance,according to security sources. They added that the three Israeli teens were buried on land purchased by the Kawasmeh family long before the attack. Hussam admitted in investigation to having shaven his beard off and obtained a forged passport in an attempt to flee the country to Jordan.

After going missing on June 12, Eyal Yifrah, 19, and 16-year-old classmates Gilad Sha’ar and Naftali Frenkel, were declared kidnapped the next day.

Suspicion immediately fell on Hamas after intelligence pointed towards the involvement of Kawasmeh and Abu-Eisha, whose names were publicized two weeks later.

An 18-day search for the three teenagers ensued, accompanied by a crackdown on Hamas in Judea and Samaria, but the search ended in tragedy after their bodies were found in field close to the Arab village of Halhul near Hevron. They were buried side-by-side in the city of Modi’in.

The three boys are believed to have been murdered very shortly after being kidnapped; one source close to the murder investigation said a recording of a call made by one of the boys as he was being kidnap provides crucial evidence that the murder had been pre-planned from the very start.

The source claimed the kidnappers dressed up as religious Jews to lure the victims into their car.

HILLARY — EXPOSED!


Re-Blogged from . David Greenfield’s “Hillary Will Be Alinsky’s Third Term.”  I’ve changed it ever so slightly – a punctuation mark and adding one comment.

After two terms in the White House by one Alinsky disciple, the United States is divided as never before.  We cannot survive another.   One in four Americans are ready for their state to secede from the United States. Three quarters of Americans don’t believe that their children will have a better future than they did.

To anyone else this would be a failure, but to an Alinskyite despair and doom are a success story.  Saul Alinsky wrote in Rules for Radicals that the organizer must “rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression.”

He must make the people “feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future.”

Obama has made Americans feel frustrated, defeated, futureless and lost. And if they were hoping that the next Democrat will actually bring hope and change, instead of hatred and despair, they will be deeply disappointed. While Obama learned his community organizing skills at the feet of Alinsky’s twisted disciples, Hillary Clinton learned them from Alinsky.  Hillary is even worse than Obama.

In the introduction to her senior thesis on Alinsky, Hillary Rodham thanked him for his time and for offering her a job.  But those dispassionate words were covering up a much deeper relationship.

The Free Beacon’s recent release of an exchange of letters begins with Hillary anxiously waiting for the release of Rules for Radicals.

“Has it come and I somehow missed the fulfillment of Revelation?” the former Methodist “Goldwater Girl” turned radical leftist wonders.

“You are being rediscovered again as the New Left-type politicos are finally beginning to think seriously about the hard work and mechanics of organizing,” she writes.

In her thesis, Hillary had attempted to depict Alinsky as a mainstream American icon, writing, “His are the words used in our schools and churches, by our parents and their friends, by our peers.  The difference is that Alinsky really believes in them”. The media attempted to defend her Alinsky ties by claiming that he was not ideologically of the left.  Hillary’s letter however gives the lie to that.

Alinsky was not mainstream. There was nothing American about him.  He was a man of the hard left, and Hillary Rodham represented a connection to the future.

In the introduction to Rules for Radicals, he wrote of her generation of leftist radicals, “It is what they do and will do that will give meaning to what I and the radicals of my generation have done with our lives.”

That is what the last six years have been.  The misery, the rising prices, the racial hatred and despair were the meaning that Barack Obama brought to Saul Alinsky’s life.  They are the fertile dark territories on which Hillary Rodham Clinton means to build a horrifying future.

Alinsky was more than a thesis subject to Clinton.  And vice versa. Her letter to him is cheerfully intimate.  His secretary’s response references “his feelings about you”. The year was 1971. Hillary was deep in her political activities and had begun dating Bill Clinton. Three years earlier, Alinsky had offered her a job. Hillary however had chosen to go on working through the system. That continues to be her tactic today.

Hillary Clinton didn’t reject Alinsky, as she and the media have tried to claim.  His tactics and worldview continue to inform her own. But Hillary, Rodham or Clinton, understood the importance of adaptation.

But so did Alinsky.

“As an organizer I start from where the world is,” Alinsky wrote in Rules for Radicals. “That means working in the system.”

“If the real radical finds that having long hair sets up psychological barriers to communication and organization, he cuts his hair,” he added.

Hillary’s pantsuits, her $1,500 haircuts and her time with the Democratic Leadership Council were not a rejection of Alinsky.  They were the tactics of a Rules for Radicals leftist working within the system.

Alinsky would have understood and approved.

In her first memoir, Hillary Clinton claimed that she had broken with Alinsky over her “belief that the system could be changed from within.”

But Alinsky had believed that as well. Hillary never broke with him, but she had to maintain the appearance of having left behind a radical flirtation to become a mainstream Democrat. That appearance, like everything else about her, was and is a lie.

Quoting Lenin, Alinsky wrote in Rules for Radicals, “They have the guns and therefore we are for peace and for reformation through the ballot. When we have the guns then it will be through the bullet.”

“And it was,” he added.

For now it’s still reformation through the ballot, overseen by a propagandist media and its campaigns of dirty tricks.  But the radicals still dream of the day when they have the guns and Americans have nothing.

Despite the media’s attempts to dismiss Hillary Clinton’s ties to Alinsky, the way that they had tried to wave away Obama’s ties to Bill Ayers, she maintained her dirty political connections with Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation even inside the white walls of the White House.

A year after the letter, Alinsky was buried in the cold hard ground of Cook County after an attack of the heart that no one knew he had. By then Hillary Clinton was campaigning for George McGovern.

“The key word for an Alinsky-type organizing effort is ‘power.’” Hillary wrote in her thesis. “’As he says: ‘No individual or organization can negotiate without power to compel negotiations.’”

The Clintons have gathered enormous wealth and power to themselves.  As Obama’s radical fires burn across the heartland, as factories close, unemployment lines bulge and the people despair, the Clintons are positioning themselves as the sensible moderates who will take a step back from his radical ways. For the scam to work, they had to play the long game of pretending not to be radicals.

Hillary had to be seen as leaving Alinsky behind to truly fulfill his vision of a ruined nation brought to its knees.

In 1971, on the cusp of her latest meeting with Alinsky, Hillary Rodham was coming to some crucial decisions that would determine the expression of her radicalism and extremism. Influencing her in this regard was none other than Saul Alinsky.

From his teachings, Hillary came to understand that power mattered more than symbolism and that effectiveness came before integrity.

“All effective actions require the passport of morality,” Alinsky wrote.  Hillary carries the passport of morality.  Its pages however are blank. Radicals of the left are not citizens of any country or members of any religion. Their only nation is their own ideology.  Their only allegiance is to their radicalism.

“We have the serious business and joy of much work ahead,” Hillary wrote to him. Alinsky would soon be dead, but Hillary would be carrying on his work by abusing her advisory position with the House Committee on the Judiciary to bring down the President of the United States.

McGovern had lost, but Hillary Clinton would have her way no matter what the ballots said. And her way was the Alinsky way.

Now the White House has been reserved for her. The Democratic Party is waiting to anoint another of Saul Alinsky’s disciples for a third term of misery and terror in the radical plot to destroy America.

YOU’RE PAYING FOR ABORTIONS


GAO Report: ObamaCare Includes Taxpayer-Funded Abortion

From the Concerned Women of America comes this Media Statement

Today, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), an independent watchdog agency, released a new report outlining abortion coverage in ObamaCare. The report found that all Americans, even in states that have excluded abortion from their exchanges, are being forced to subsidize these services.  It also found that when Americans tried to determine whether abortion coverage was included in their plan, that information was not readily available.

Concerned Women for America CEO and President Penny Nance says in the statement below that President Obama has broken yet another promise to the American people:

“In a joint session of Congress in September 2009, President Obama unequivocally said that under the health care plan he proposed, ‘no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions, and federal conscience laws will remain in place.

[1] Now we know that at least 1,036 plans cover abortion, and the so-called ‘surcharge’ for abortion coverage is simply an accounting gimmick.  For a president who claims to pursue the most transparent administration, he continues to reject calls to shed light on what exactly is in plans on the health care exchange.

“We deserve to know from our providers just what our insurance plans cover and, even more, we deserve to be assured that we will not be forced to pay for abortions under the guise of health care.  Nearly 60% of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion.

[2] The House has acted by passing the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act; it is time for Senator Reid and President Obama to rectify this broken promise.”

MEDICAL MARIJUANA’S HARM CONTINUES TO FLOOD IN!


Yet the media continues to not only ignore it; they purposefully hide the truth!

Admittedly, I’m not a fan of his but please watch this short clip of Bill O’Reilly exposing the truth.

There is one specific psychological impact that can and will break America’s heart – that’s the enslavement if its children, and both Washington state and Colorado, the hedonistic centers of America, have naïvely sold their children’s souls to the devil . .

Sgt. TAHMOORESSI vs. The NAIVETY of so many


This below is Reblogged:

untitled (6)
Watching Greta Van Susteren of Fox Cable News, of late, has been very touching. She seriously thought that her securing the requisite number of petitions from Americans concerned about Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi would move Obama to assist the young marine (who is languishing in a hell-hole of a Mexican jail). I am aware that Ms. Van Susteren is a committed liberal, for whom it took five-plus years before she could speak negatively of Barack Obama, the liberals’ President. But as I observe her response to the Tahmooressi case, I can see just how naïve she and so many others are regarding the true nature of the creature who currently occupies the White House.

Barack Obama is a small, weak man who despises everything about the military and the men who serve. The masculinity of military culture (any military) is a threat to non-males like Barack Obama, as it is to women of a radical feminist bent. Obama is no more interested in assisting Sgt. Tahmooressi than the Man in the Moon is. Observing Americans grovel at his feet begging him to use his influence in the marine’s behalf serves to stroke his twisted and inflated ego. Meanwhile, he gives Ms. Van Susteren and the rest of America the middle finger.

I am very pleased that Greta Van Susteren and others are keeping the Tahmooressi case on the front burner. If nothing else, Sgt. Tahmooressi might be encouraged to endure. Knowing that people are working to free him, he can maintain a degree of hope. But I doubt that he will be freed by anything that Obama does.

I tire of witnessing the many instances of Americans expecting Obama to do the “right thing” or the “courageous thing” when it comes to any issue of what is best for America. Obama hates America; he hates its founding principles and particularly those Judeo-Christian elements, which form its base. I would venture to say that he also hates the white people who grovel at his feet, those who have gone to great pains to cast him as just another President who happens to be black. People such as Greta Van Susteren, who until recently, “had his back,” as the saying goes, and Bill O’Reilly (another Fox News commentator) who takes “Obama groveling” to a new level (anything for ratings). I would imagine that Obama gets a lot of private laughs out of O’Reilly’s groveling. I certainly would if I were someone like Barack Obama.

The very sad (and sobering) truth that the nation’s current condition reveals to me, and probably many other Americans, is that where this slow rot will end is inevitable.

Come November 2014, it is likely that Americans will vote out Democratic Party congressional leadership, which is a scourge on the nation and the primary enabler of Obama’s destructive policies. This will leave Obama surrounded by, likely, a Congress that is willing to impeach him and try him for criminal and treasonous behavior toward America. That done, his fanatical minions, the media, and other supporters will violently revolt. And I suspect that the rest of America will be so thoroughly fed up with the lawlessness and so pushed to the brink that there will be armed resistance to those revolting in opposition to Obama’s removal. The civil war will have begun. How it will end is yet to be determined.

Now, I know that some out there in fading America dare not even think of the scenario that I have just described. But not thinking it does not make it unviable. It can and will probably happen this way or in some similar fashion. I am of the firm belief that the two dominant and opposing worldviews that are now prevalent in America (the socialistic left and the conservative right, to describe them simplistically) cannot and will not coexist. They are diametrically opposed. History tells us that when a nation reaches this point, there is either war or one worldview capitulates and the other dominates. I do not see capitulation happening in America, which was born out of a revolutionary war.

I think it is time that we all wake up and prepare for the inevitable. America will not be salvaged over a peace pipe. Sorry, but life and freedom have never been and will never be so easy.

OBAMA TO FIGHT ISIS BY ARMING ISIS


“Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel,” Samuel Johnson said. A few centuries later his fellow Englishman, Winston Churchill, quipped, “The United States invariably does the right thing, after having exhausted every other alternative.”

It’s not true of the United States, but it is true of Barack Obama who, having exhausted every alternative that involved appeasement or pretending that ISIS wasn’t a threat, has decided to do the right thing, … as long as he gets enough applause for doing it.

With his approval ratings, particularly on American leadership and national security, lower than Assad’s, he decided to exploit September 11 to butch up his foreign policy image.

After spending the last few years ignoring ISIS, he delivered a carefully timed speech vowing to take it on. The speech might have been a little more credible if it had not come from the man whose inaction allowed ISIS to take over parts of Iraq and Syria and who early this year was dismissing it as a JV team.

The scoundrel who lied and claimed that he had defeated Al Qaeda has been reborn again as a patriot who is promising to… defeat Al Qaeda. Even his usual boast of defeating Al Qaeda has been carefully walked back to a claim of having defeated “much of al-Qaida’s leadership in Afghanistan and Pakistan”.

That brief moment of near honesty is diminished only by the fact that the war on Al Qaeda had moved on to the Middle East long before Obama even took office. It was Obama who decided to divert away from fighting Al Qaeda in the Middle East on a failed attempt to defeat the Taliban and an even more failed attempt to negotiate peace with the “moderate” Taliban.

Obama’s strategy is a kitchen sink approach that promises air strikes for the patriots and multilateral coalitions for the appeasers. There will be coalitions with Sunni Arabs and with a new “inclusive” Iraqi government. There will be coalitions with everyone. A UN session will be chaired. Syria will be bombed and “terrorists who threaten our country” will be hunted down.

And all of it will happen without a single American soldier being put at risk.

It’s an utterly incoherent and calculatedly unobjectionable speech by a failing politician that fails to address why we’re in this mess and what past policies we have to rethink to get out of it.

In a telling sign, Obama’s giant goodie bag of ISIS proposals also includes … arming ISIS.

“Across the border in Syria, we have ramped up our military assistance to the Syrian opposition. Tonight, I again call on Congress, again, to give us additional authorities and resources to train and equip these fighters,” Obama said. “We must strengthen the opposition as the best counterweight to extremists like ISIL, while pursuing the political solution necessary to solve Syria’s crisis once and for all.”

It was the Syrian crisis that turned ISIS into an army. Some of the groups now loyal to ISIS once fought alongside the Syrian opposition that he would like to arm.  Some still do.

Not only does Obama know this, but he refrained from fully committing to arming the Syrian rebels precisely because there was no way to do so without risking the weapons falling into the hands of ISIS.

Hillary Clinton wrote in “Hard Choices” that he had refused to arm the rebels. Last year Defense Secretary Leon Panetta had testified that Obama had vetoed a proposal to provide weapons to them.

At a press conference Obama had said, “We have seen extremist elements insinuate themselves into the opposition, and you know, one of the things that we have to be on guard about — particularly when we start talking about arming opposition figures — is that we are not indirectly putting arms in the hands of folks that would do Americans harm.”

Reports in the New York Times suggested that the administration had not been able to find any “moderates” who could safely be armed with heavy weapons because the actual fighters on the ground are all Islamic Jihadists.

Now Obama is not only reversing one of the few sensible things he did and championing a policy that he knows quite well is wrong, but is also attempting to make Congress complicit in his destructive folly.

Obama was willing to give F-16 jets to the Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt. If he was holding off on heavy weapons transfers to the Jihadists in Syria, it was because he knew that there was a very high risk that those weapons would end up being used against Americans. And that he would pay a political price.

ISIS became much more lethal when it acquired American equipment that had been provided to the Iraqi military. ISIS allies in Syria had already been photographed with American humanitarian aid and when the Jihadists of the Islamic Front turned on the Free Syrian Army that is the typical vector for US aid, it easily seized their supplies and warehouses.

While the FSA isn’t ISIS, parts of it are aligned with ISIS and the other parts are jockeying for power.

Some Jihadist commanders with the FSA and other non-ISIS groups fight ISIS and its allies. Others are its allies. Telling them apart is hard even with a map and a room full of charts. Fighters drift back and forth. The “moderate” Syrian rebel that we arm and train today will be the “extreme” terrorist tomorrow and there is absolutely no way to tell where a weapon that we provide will end up.

Arming the Syrian opposition is the same thing as arming ISIS. The Syrian Jihadists fighting it don’t “reject its extreme ideology” as much as they’re angling for their piece of the Caliphate. The Al Nusra Front was fighting ISIS before it pledged allegiance to ISIS. The Sunni opposition consists of a lot of wannabe Caliphs trying to collect enough bakeries and oil wells to cash in for a Caliphate.

Obama insisted once again in his speech that ISIS is not Islamic. “No religion condones the killing of innocents… ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”

The vision of Islam, past and present, has been the slaughter of all who stand in the way of the religion’s supremacy. But the attempt to portray ISIS as a unique entity that is detached from all other Islamic terrorist groups is a misleading effort to justify an incoherent policy.

“These terrorists are unique in their brutality,” Obama claimed. “They execute captured prisoners. They kill children. They enslave, rape and force women into marriage. They threatened a religious minority with genocide.”

There isn’t anything unique about these things. Wahhabi Jihadists have been doing all of them for centuries. And these tactics date back to Mohammed.

ISIS isn’t unique in its brutality. It’s unique in its successes. And its successes can be credited to Obama’s Arab Spring and his refusal to admit that his policy of ignoring Iraq had failed.

“America is safer,” Obama claims. But that’s a lie.

America is less safe than ever. Not just because of ISIS, but because of a leadership that allows such crises to become severe threats because it refuses to address what they really are.

Obama’s speech promises action against ISIS while denying what it is. If Obama follows through on his policy, instead of defeating ISIS, he will arm it. It’s an old mistake being repeated all over again.

We can’t defeat terrorists by arming terrorists.

VIDEO of GRAPHIC CARTEL VIOLENCE


Warning, Graphic Violence:

This video, is extremely graphic and “Must Not be Viewed By Children”.

These four women are beheaded and then dismembered by these Mexican Narco-terrorists.

With this happening just over our border, why is it our government is not securing it?

OUR PRESIDENT, SENATORS, AND REPRESENTATIVES ARE NOT ONLY NOT FAILING TO FULFILL THEIR OATHS TO PROTECT AND DEFEND!  Instead, they are playing political games.

This is what is happening to the Citizens of Mexico by the Mexican Drug Cartels and the other Narco-nations of Latin America.

This is facilitated by those like Leftist Billionaire George Soros, including all who use and abuse drugs in our nation.

We should never forget that President Barack Obama and his US Attorney General Eric Holder are also complicit in the deaths of these ladies since the president, decided to use the power and influence of his office to look the other way, permitting both Colorado and the State of Washington to legalize marijuana, besides their cover-up of “gun-walking”.

Solitude By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

    Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
    But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
    Sigh, it is lost on the air;
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
    But shrink from voicing care.
Rejoice, and men will seek you;
    Grieve, and they turn and go;
They want full measure of all your pleasure,
    But they do not need your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many;
    Be sad, and you lose them all,—
There are none to decline your nectared wine,
    But alone you must drink life’s gall.
Feast, and your halls are crowded;
    Fast, and the world goes by.
Succeed and give, and it helps you live,
    But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
    For a large and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
    Through the narrow aisles of pain.
Thanks Joyce, for sharing this!

BANKRUPTING US ALL!


This needs to change:

  • “The salary of retired U.S. presidents is $180,000 for life.
  • Salary of retired House and Senate members: $174,000 for life. 
  • Salary of the speaker of the House: $223,000 for life.
  • The average salary of a teacher, on the other hand, is $40,000 a year. 
  • The average salary of a deployed soldier: $38,000 a year.

    I suspect you know too that we need some reforms. 
     
    We need to stop paying salaries for life to presidents, House and Senate members! 
     
     Dr. Michael Savage recently pointed out the above.

DEFINITION OF CONUNDRUM


The definition of the word conundrum is: something that is puzzling or  confusing.

SIX Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America :  
  1. America is capitalist and therefore, supposedly greedy- yet half of the population is subsidized. 
  2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.
  3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.
  4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.
  5. The poor keep getting poorer -yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
  6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those other countries. Think!
And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.  Makes you wonder who is doing the math. These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:  
1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works, isn’t it? 
And here’s another one worth considering…  
2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money.  How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money?
What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t. Think about it…..   and last, but not least,  
3. Why are we not providing proper benefits for our veterans but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens?
Am I the only one missing something?

BENGHAZI – – – Now That We Know


Having finally heard last night, from the men who were there on the ground, members of the “Annex Security Team” … waiting for help to come, and knowing for sure that lies were told to the Congress Oversight Committee …

Now that we know for sure, contrary to the multiple testimonies, that there WAS a “stand-down” order given, it’s obvious that more questions need to be asked.

Some of us have, asked these questions previously – so far no one has answered!   And, of course, no one has been held accountable!  Don’t miss this link!

  1. Who sent Ambassador Stevens to Benghazi?
  2. And, why?
  3. Was it that someone, … wanted him murdered?
  4. Who is Bob, and did he testify?’
  5. What was the Annex Security Team there for – were they supplying weapons to our enemies, as has been said?

THESE MEN DIED, SERVING US!

WHO IS SNOOPING ON YOU – It’s Not the CIA nor the NSA


UPDATED:

Mysterious Fake Cellphone Towers Are Intercepting Calls All Over The US

In a story filed by Jack Dutton filing for REUTERS News Service, he reported that there are 17 fake cellphone towers across the U.S. – – – this, according to a report in Popular Science.   Here’s a link to another story about this ….

Rather than offering you cellphone service, the towers appear to be connecting to nearby phones, bypassing their encryption, and either tapping calls or reading texts.  Are they monitoring to pick up your debit card number?   At this point, no one knows and it’s unclear who owns the towers!   China anyone?   Several tower are near to military bases.

Les Goldsmith, the CEO of ESD America, used ESD’s CryptoPhone 500 to detect 17 bogus cellphone towers. ESD is a leading American defense and law enforcement technology provider based in Las Vegas.

With most phones, these fake communication towers are undetectable. But not for the CryptoPhone 500, a customized Android device that is disguised as a Samsung Galaxy S III but has highly advanced encryption.

Goldsmith told Popular Science: ” Interceptor use in the U.S. is much higher than people had anticipated. One of our customers took a road trip from Florida to North Carolina and he found eight different interceptors on that trip. We even found one at South Point Casino in Las Vegas.”

The towers were found in July, but the report implied that there may have been more out there.  The point is: we don’t really know whose they are,” Goldsmith said to Popular Science.  It’s probably not the NSA — that agency can tap all it wants without the need for bogus towers, VentureBeat reported:

Not the NSA, cloud security firm SilverSky CTO/SVP Andrew Jaquith told us. “The NSA doesn’t need a fake tower,” he said. “They can just go to the carrier” to tap your line.

ComputerWorld points out that the fake towers give themselves away by crushing down the performance of your phone from 4G to 2G while the intercept is taking place. So if you see your phone operating on a slow download signal while you’re near a military base … maybe make that call from somewhere else.

In an amazing coincidence, police departments in a handful of U.S. cities have been operating “Stingray” or “Hailstorm” towers, which — you guessed it — conduct surveillance on mobile phone activity. They do that by jamming mobile phone signals, forcing phones to drop down from 4G and 3G network bands to the older, more insecure 2G band.

GUN CONTROL


As ISIS is slaughtering the helpless, in the middle-east, … say, … for being Christians … or having been born Jewish, or not being Sunni, or not being radical enough, have you noticed the gun control freaks here at home have been stunningly quiet for once?

You say it can’t happen here?  I suspect Germany thought that too.

Maybe they realize our inept, elected officials refuse to honor their sworn duty to close our borders and protect and defend.  The question is, … when an attack happens here again, will we impeach those who did nothing? ? ?

SOTLOFF, THE MURDERED JOURNALIST, WAS AN ISRAELI


Sotloff, the Murdered US Journalist Was Actually an Israeli

Journalist beheaded by Islamic State had made aliyah, risked his life to fast on Yom Kippur and pray towards Jerusalem in captivity  //  by Shimon Cohen // First Publish: 9/3/2014

Journalist Sotloff, just before his Murder

Journalist Sotloff, just before his Murder

American journalist Steven Sotloff, who was brutally beheaded by the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, took great risks to keep his Jewish faith in captivity, a former fellow-captive of the murdered journalist told Yediot Aharonoth.

However, it turns out that Sotloff was in fact Israeli.

A media gag order on the issue was released on Wednesday, allowing publication of the fact that Sotloff made aliyah (immigration) to Israel in 2005 by himself, and studied at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya.

IDC Herzliya released a statement shortly after the gag order was released, noting its great sadness over 31-year-old Sotloff’s brutal murder and adding that he studied at the institution from 2005 to 2008.

The statement pointed out that Sotloff, whose work was published in Time, The National Interest and Media Line and Foreign Policy, had been stationed in Egypt, Bahrain, Turkey and Libya, before finally going to Syria where he was abducted by IS.

“In this act the Muslim jihad group has removed itself from the family of humanity,” said IDC Herzliya founder and president Prof. Uriel Reichman. “The murder of Steven also erased the immunity that civilized society grants journalists, even in times of war, as their goal is to guard the truth and freedom of speech.”

Reichman added “the murder of Steven reminds us again against whom humanity must stand, but it also teaches us the values of tolerance, humanity, the pursuit of justice and freedom of speech. …The Interdisciplinary Center mourns the tragic death of Steven and joins in the grief of his family.”

Heroically maintaining Judaism under captivity

Sotloff reportedly made sure to fast in secret during Yom Kippur and even prayed in the direction of Jerusalem, as is customary in Jewish prayers, despite the risk he faced if his Islamist captors ever found out he was Jewish.

One of Sotloff’s fellow captives, who was subsequently released, told the paper that he feigned illness in order to escape his captors’ suspicions.

11 “MISSING” AIRLINERS


NEW UPDATE: 10/10/2014

It surprises me this article continues to get hits … unless that is that there’s new info I don’t know of?

Yet people click on it daily, even though the reports said all the planes were moved by the carriers (owners).   Maybe that’s evidence of the distrust of the media … or possibly  conspiratorial mindsets?

UPDATE: 9/5/2014 — 16:31 PST

At this point, it’s being broadcast that these planes are NOT missing, but have been “relocated” to other airfields; we suspect that is true, but . . . we’ll wait and see …

9 11 photoPublished last night, now being reported on Hannity …..

Eleven commercial jets have reportedly been stolen in recent weeks in Libya, and Western intelligence agencies have begun warning they could be used in terror attacks on 9/11, the anniversary of the devastating Osama bin Laden-orchestrated attacks on New York and Washington that left nearly 3,000 dead.

According to a report in the Free Beacon, the jets were taken by Islamist militias in Libya, and reports distributed within the U.S. government “included a warning that one or more of the aircraft could be used in an attack … on the date marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks…”

One official in the report assembled by the highly respected Bill Gertz said, “There are a number of commercial airliners in Libya that are missing. We found out on September 11 what can happen with hijacked planes.”

Gertz now is senior editor of the Free Beacon, but built his career during 27 years as reporter, editor and columnist with the Washington Times. He’s also authored six books and his online biography reveals the state-run Xinhua news agency in 2006 identified him as the No. 1 “anti-China expert” in the world.

His report about the missing jetliners notes authorities have a high level of concern because of the convergence of the cases of missing airplanes and the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.

It also is just two years after the 9/11 terror attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, a scandal that still is reverberating through the Obama administration and threatening to become a game-changer for the 2014 elections.

Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in that attack.

A State Department official declined comment, Gertz reported.

The officials quoted by Gertz said U.S. intelligence agencies now are trying to locate all the airplanes belonging to two Libyan airline companies, and they have not confirmed the aircraft theft, which reportedly happened after the takeover by terrorists of Tripoli International Airport in August.

“The state-owned Libyan Airlines fleet until this summer included 14 passenger and cargo jetliners, including seven Airbus 320s, one Airbus 330, two French ATR-42 turboprop aircraft, and four Bombardier CJR-900s,” the report said. “Libyan state-owned Afriqiyah Airways fleet is made up of 13 aircraft, including three Airbus 319s, seven Airbus 320s, two Airbus 330s, and one Airbus 340.”

The report blames Libyan Dawn, one of the terror organizations operating there, for the alleged thefts in late August.

Following the warnings from Western intelligence agencies, Tunisia halted flights from Tripoli, Sirte and Misrata because of the potential the jets would appear in suicide missions, the report said.

And Egypt halted flights to and from Libya.

Gertz said military components from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Egypt were put on a higher level of alert.

Libya has been an uncontrolled disaster area since the Obama administration engineered the removal in 2011 of strongman Moammar Gadhafi from office. His departure left terror factions struggling for control as the nation plunged into chaos.

Both Libyan Dawn and another group called Ansar al-Shariah were declared by Libya’s parliament to be terror groups. The report said Ansar al-Shariah reportedly has surface-to-air missiles, anti-aircraft guns and rocket-propelled grenades, among other weapons.

Abderrahmane Mekkaoui, a Moroccan military expert, explained to Al Jazeera broadcasting that “credible intelligence” reports say the jets are intended for use by a group called Masked Men Brigade for attacks on the 9/11 date.

Gertz reported that a counterterrorism expert, Sebastian Gorka, explained the events that could develop with the stolen jets.

“The first would be how commercial airliners were used on Sept. 11, 2001, literally turning an innocent mode of mass transit into a super-high precision guided missile of immense potency,” he said.

“The second tactic could be to use the airframe with its civilian markings as a tool of deception to insert a full payload of armed terrorists into a locale that otherwise is always open to commercial carriers,” he said.

Gertz’ report noted the planes themselves become an agent of destruction.

“Who needs ballistic missiles when you have passenger planes?” asked Michael Rubin, of the American Enterprise Institute. “Even empty, but loaded up with fuel, they can be as devastating

ATTACK IMMINENT!


ISIS and Al Qaeda Now Spotted in Mexico!

.Dear Conservative,

This is what we have been warning about all along. Leaked federal government documents show that an attack along the United States’ southern border is “imminent.”

Islamic terrorists operating in Mexico border city of Ciudad Juarez are planning a massive assault on the United States.

Terrorist groups like ISIS have realized that the Obama administration couldn’t care less about the country’s border security, so these extremists are preparing to take advantage of President Obama’s open border policy!

The only way to keep the United States safe is to close the southern border once and for all and pray that these terrorists haven’t snuck in already!

Reports say a terrorist attack is imminent! Only you can demand that Congress close the southern border immediately!

We are a little more than a week away from the 13th Anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks. All the intelligence suggests that terrorists are gearing up to attack the United States through our porous border.

This isn’t a joke and it isn’t conjecture. Government sources have revealed that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, Mexico. These terrorists are situated right across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas!

Intelligence officials have reportedly picked up radio chatter confirming that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border” and that “it’s coming very soon.”

How is the President handling this growing threat? What is Barack Obama’s plan to stop ISIS terrorists from attacking Americans on US soil?

He doesn’t have a plan!

I will admit that I am usually one of the first to criticize Barack Obama, but those are his own words, not mine. Those are the words of the White House Press Secretary as well. Barack Obama doesn’t have a plan to defeat ISIS. He has never had a plan. And given the number of fundraisers he has been attending and rounds of golf he has been playing, it isn’t likely that a plan will be developed anytime soon!

“I don’t want to put the cart before the horse, we don’t have a strategy yet,” Obama said earlier in the week during a White House press briefing. “I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggest that folks are getting a little further ahead of what we’re at than what we currently are.”

Is he serious??? We have government officials warning news outlets that an attack is imminent! We have leaked documents proving that terrorist chatter is up, especially concerning the US Border! And we have reason to believe that ISIS and Al Qaeda are coordinating with Mexican drug cartels to infiltrate and attack the United States!

And what is the administration doing? Instead of bolstering border security, Border Patrol agents are now allowed to skip patrols at certain border crossings deemed to be “too dangerous.”

Think about that… There are wide stretches of land that border patrol agents actively avoid because they are officially deemed to be too dangerous…

The threat from ISIS and other Islamic terrorists in Mexico is real. This is the largest national security threat we’ve seen in years.

A few days ago, a boat full of illegal aliens washed ashore on a San Diego beach. If you haven’t watched the video of this, I strongly recommend that you do. The pictures show a full-on beach invasion of dozens of illegals.

We love to think that because we live in the United States, we are safe. Many of us will go to the beach on this Labor Day holiday without a care in the world. But think about that video you just watched. Imagine if those were terrorists in that boat. I know this might seem far-fetched, but it really isn’t.

We have illegal aliens and drug smugglers figuring out creative new ways to sneak into the country every day. Now that ISIS and Al Qaeda are in Mexico collaborating with drug cartels, it is only a matter of time before the next panga boat to wash ashore contains armed terrorists instead…

Reports say a terrorist attack is imminent! Only you can demand that Congress close the southern border immediately!

Every source is pointing to the fact that a terrorist attack on American soil could just be days away. What is Obama doing about it? Nothing!

He’s playing golf, jetting off to Democrat fundraisers, even attending an MSNBC anchor’s wedding… pretty much everything accept his actual job.

Why would Obama care? He doesn’t have to suffer the consequences of his inaction. He has a complete Secret Service security detail and lives most of his life behind a pane of bulletproof glass. But the same is not true for the Americans living along the southern border or wherever ISIS and Al Qaeda decide to strike…

None of this would be happening if the Obama administration just did its job and secured the border! We wouldn’t have to worry about terrorists slipping through if the border was actually being manned!

The solution is simple… it has always been simple…

We have gotten to this point because we have allowed Barack Obama to ignore the law for years.

We have allowed the administration to give ICE and Border Patrol “discretionary authority” to not enforce the law at all.

We have emboldened drug smugglers and terrorists by preventing Border Patrol agents from using deadly force while on the job.

If you want a secure border, you need to take border security out of Obama’s hands!

If you want a secure border, you need to DEMAND it from Congress!

Reports say a terrorist attack is imminent! Only you can demand that Congress close the southern border immediately!

Sincerely,

Joe Otto

Conservative Daily

(My comment: This could happen soon, or it could be AFTER the November elections – but that depends if Obama has decided to call for MARTIAL LAW!   Either is a possibility, but it’s NOT an “if”; it’s a “when”!  If you don’t understand Obama, if you’ve not read D’Souza, you need  to … or see his new movie first.”

COLORADO / WASHINGTON LEGALIZATION CAUSING PROBLEMS ACROSS THE NATION


Girl eats father’s marijuana-laced bar  //  Reported by  BRENNA LINSLEY of Associated Press

You better know who that package is from when that knock on your door to sign for a package comes . . .  That 1st knock could be followed by a life-changing KNOCK!

A Chippewa Falls man faces a charge of second degree recklessly endangering safety after his daughter ate a chocolate bar with 225 milligrams of THC, the active ingredient of marijuana.

Jason N. Hetke, 38, 1619 Nicholas Lane No. 3 is also charged with child neglect and possession of THC dating from June 12 in Chippewa Falls. Hetke is scheduled to appear before Judge James Isaacson at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28.

According to a criminal complaint:  The girl appeared intoxicated in school after eating an entire THC chocolate bar, that has the nickname of a Colorado Bar. She said she ate edibles brought back from Colorado, which legalized marijuana for adults over 21 in 2012.

The girl said the bar was about a third of the size of a dollar bill. Her pulse was so weak that a school officer and an officer were unable to read it. In her pants pocket there was this writing: “Blue Kudu Chocolate, 225 mg of THC, 22.5 doses. Extremely potent. Do not eat all at once.”

The girl said she found the bar in a dresser drawer inside her father’s bedroom.

Using a search warrant, police opened a night stand in Jason Hetke’s residence and found a bag labeled “Colorado Bar,” that said the weight of the package was 43 grams and was labeled as being medicinal THC.

In another bedroom police found a bag weighing 3 grams. It was butane hash oil, a concentrated form of THC.

A report by a federally funded drug task force on Thursday said the amount of Colorado marijuana being seized en route to other states through the U.S. mail has more than quadrupled since 2010 and was destined for more states than before.

Postal inspectors seized more than 493 pounds of pot from packages in 2013, up from 57 pounds in 2010, the year after medical marijuana dispensaries proliferated in Colorado, according to the figures released this month by the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area.

Just 15 packages were bound for 10 states in 2010, compared to the 207 parcels destined for 33 states in 2013.  Top destinations were Florida, Maryland and Illinois, the report states.

Among the cases listed in the report:

—A Boulder, Colorado, man who sent more than 14 pounds of pot to places including Wisconsin, Massachusetts and California.

—A Lakewood, Colorado, man who police say used his condo and a warehouse to grow enough high-grade marijuana for his crime ring to send between 24 and 60 pounds each month to out-of-state customers.

—A suburban Denver drug task force seized nearly 20 pounds of pot from three FedEx packages bound for Illinois and Kansas.

The report, based on information from the United States Postal Inspection Service, doesn’t contain figures for the first six months of 2014, when recreational pot shops opened in the state.

The Postal Service in Denver has denied requests from The Associated Press for the same data.

The spike in pot seizures is a sign not of more proactive postal investigations but that more people are shipping pot through the mail, said Tom Gorman, director of Rocky HIDTA, a network of law enforcement organizations in four western states that share information on drug-running patterns. It releases a yearly report about marijuana legalization as part of its work.

Despite being legal in Colorado, federal law maintains marijuana use and sales are illegal. Because the Postal Service is a federal agency, using it to move marijuana — even within states where it is legal — is a crime.

Denver attorney Brian Vicente, who helped write the pot law, said the leakage of Colorado marijuana into other states is a serious issue that voters agreed should remain illegal. But he was skeptical of the HIDTA report, which he said promotes prohibition.

The U.S. Justice Department said it would tolerate marijuana sales in Colorado and Washington as long as the pot didn’t cross state lines.

He said people are also sending it through private couriers like FedEx and UPS, which don’t release statistics on their seizures. Neither company would comment on how it investigates such cases.

OBOY: Something Else The Complicit, Traitorous MEDIA Hid From You!


Take special note of line 4. Any investment plans for retirement just shrunk by 13%. Thank you Mr Obummer and all of the rest of the thieves in Washington, … who, by the way, … are exempt from all of the negative ramifications of the Obamacare mess.

: Oboy

DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU 7-1-14?   Here is what happened on July 1st:

Top Income Tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%

Top Income Payroll Tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%

Capital Gains Tax went from 15 % to 28%

Dividend Tax went from 15% to 39.6%

Estate Tax went from 0% to 55%

These taxes were all passed under the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare.    All these taxes were passed with only Democratic votes.   Not one Republican voted to pass these taxes.   I’m not a Republican, but remember this, come election time.

Socialism?   Or Communism?

It doesn’t matter; everything he does moves us toward being unable to survive his assault on our … and the entire world’s FREEDOM!

The Department of Justice is giving money from the Bank of America settlement to liberal groups


Originally posted on America's Watchtower:

 Eric Holder’s Department of Injustice filed a lawsuit against Bank of America which resulted in an out of court settlement of roughly $17 billions. It is now being reported here that the Injustice Department is funneling some of that money to liberal activist groups.

  Here is more:

Judicial Watch reports that the Department of Justice is giving liberal activist groups money from a $16.6 billion settlement with Bank of America.

The groups benefitting from the lawsuit, according to Investor’s Business Daily, are the National Council of La Raza, Operation Hope, National Community Reinvestment Coalition, and Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America. The money also went to “delinquent borrowers” in Chicago, Oakland, Detroit, Philadelphia, and other major “Democrat strongholds.”

“This is a wealth redistribution scheme disguised as a lawsuit,” Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, told The Daily Caller. “And who benefits from the distribution? Interest groups the administration relies on, outside interest…

APPROPRIATE SYMBOLISM


Here’s something for you to enjoy … it’s humorous, in a time of desperately needed humor, and it’s respectful in a time when self-respect is stripped from us . . . all of us.

Worst of all, this comes at a time when we should all be grieving … when we are being led into suicide . . . as a nation, . . . as he was . . .

WE ARE!

Flag now hangs lifeless, without his uplifting spirit …

BEWARE! RACISTS HAVE FULL REIN


From the beginning, President Obama set out to divide and conquer – that’s what “community organizing” is all about.   It’s what Marxism is all about . . . and racism has been the INTENDED vehicle!

Sure; there are racists still today, but evidence points directly at the 3 most obvious and from what’s going on in Ferguson, Mo. it clearly shows that most current racists are black, yet we must lay blame at the feet of the most obvious!

  1. New Black Panthers, (who are on video saying “Kill White Babies”),
  2. Eric Holder who sent the obvious signal to the Sharpton / Jackson types  of what was coming when he refused to prosecute the NBP in Philly, and of course
  3. Obama’s incident in Cambridge – his “beer summit” which totally failed so badly the media kept it under wraps!

BEWARE AMERICA! We’re being set up for Martial Law. To have our guns taken away so we can be …… I’ll let you imagine what’s next and why – I’ve warned enough!

Now, after the facts are coming out, we find that Michael Brown was not only high on marijuana, he made a fatal mistake and assaulted a police officer.   It was the officer’s obligation at that point to arrest him, but as he did when he robbed the liquor store Mr. Brown — all 292 pounds of him (he wasn’t a “boy”), turned on the officer, just as he did on video, when he pushed the clerk — his fatal mistake!

His family and friends portend he was a gentile giant, polite, but had they seen him like this, … with his friends, … when he was high?  What did they say when they saw the video?

Now, another racist (Holder) and the governor of Mo., are making noises as if they are willing to offer up this police officer as a sacrifice to the mobs – a nation’s fatal mistake!   Police will never be the same if they do.   Nor will America!

But, . . . this is what the racists want . . . it’s what the governments cower from.

WATCH CLOSELY, AMERICA.
