I suggest you read this blog!

If you believe in freedom and understand the only motivation to ban guns, you need to pass this information on!

Oh, … and don’t expect to read of this in the leftist, traitorous, lamestream media!

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


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?

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.

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.”

A REALITY CHECK: AMERICA’S COMPLICIT MEDIA


Embracing the obvious truth  //  By Caroline B. Glick  //  Published August 27, 2014

terror_surrealism (2)It isn’t hard to understand the truth about Israel and Hamas.

Four-year-old Daniel Tragerman was murdered on Friday afternoon in his home in Kibbutz Nahal Oz by Hamas terrorists.

They shot him with a mortar launched from a school in Gaza’s Zeitoun neighborhood. At the time of the launch, the school was filled with civilians who had fled to the school for shelter.

They fled to the school for shelter because they were forced to vacate their homes.

They were forced to vacate their homes because Hamas terrorists were launching mortars and rockets at Israeli civilian sites, like Daniel Tragerman’s home, from their apartment buildings.

The moral and ideological divide between Israel and Hamas is so self-evident that the only way to ignore it is by embracing and cultivating ignorance.

This week Richard Behar published an in-depth investigative report in Forbes documenting how the US media is doing just that. As Behar demonstrated, the media is collaborating with Hamas in its war against Israel.

Behar cited example after example of how the US media, led by The New York Times have systematically ignored, obfuscated and downplayed Hamas’s war crimes while swallowing whole its bogus statistics and accusations against Israel.

The greatest threat to faux reporters like the New York Times Israel bureau chief Jodi Rudoren and her colleagues are people who refuse to accept their distortions and insist that the truth be told.

The most dangerous of the truth tellers are the non- Jews who stand up for Israel.

This week, former British Labour MP Denis MacShane published an op-ed in Haaretz where he spoke to this point. MacShane argued that for Israel to win the information war being waged against it must cultivate non-Jewish defenders.

In his words, “The British media… is awash with defenders of Hamas and Palestinian resistance. Hardly any are Muslims. In contrast, the prominent journalists — Jonathan Freedland, Daniel Finkelstein, Melanie Phillips, David Aaronovich — who support Israel are, well, Jews.”

MacShane argued that because they are Jews, readers dismiss them.

They “shrug their shoulders and think privately: ‘They would say that, wouldn’t they.”

Israel has an enormous reserve of support among non-Jews. But due to the mainstream media’s commitment to dishonesty and deliberate cultivation of public ignorance and moral blindness in their coverage of Israel, for many, the price of defending Israel is becoming prohibitive.

Israel’s enemies in the West do their best to reinforce this perception.

Consider the case of Jon Voight.

The celebrated Oscar-winning actor is an outspoken champion of Israel. Earlier this month, Voight published an open letter to Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem in Variety where he harshly criticized the Spanish performers for their public statement condemning Israel and siding with Hamas in its war against the Jewish state.

In his words, “I am heartsick that people like Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem could incite anti-Semitism all over the world and are oblivious to the damage they have caused.”

Voight was viciously attacked for speaking out.

Last week, two UCLA professors, Mark LeVine and Gil Hochberg, co-authored an article published in The Huffington Post assaulting him for his views and his temerity to suggest that Israel is a moral, embattled democracy fighting genocidal forces committed to its destruction.

The two Jewish academics are supporters of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.

The principal aim of the BDS movement is to make it socially unacceptable to support Israel. In 2010 LeVine and Hochberg signed a petition calling for California state universities to divest from companies that do business with Israel.

Online Hollywood commentators, such as Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva, opined that Voight, who was nominated for an Emmy Award for his role in Showtime’s Ray Donovan series, was liable to lose his Emmy bid due to his support for Israel.

Hochberg and LeVine’s assault on Voight was a long-winded voyage into the post-Zionist and anti-Zionist literary moonscape. Their principal criticism of Voight was that he refuses to accept this intellectual wasteland’s rejection of the known facts of history.

Voight is not an academic, nor has he ever claimed to be an expert on Middle Eastern history. He is a non-Jewish American concerned about the future of America.

That is why he stands with Israel. Voight recognizes that when Israel is under assault, and its right to defend itself is denied while terrorists are supported, the US is endangered. And so he feels compelled to speak out, regardless of the price.

In his response to the threats to deny him the Emmy due to his support for Israel Voight told USA Today, “I’m not speaking to get awards. I’m speaking because I’m concerned about my grandchildren and the life they’re going to live, and the country they’re coming in to. I want to protect them.”

Another non-Jewish champion of Israel is former US senator and Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum. Both during his tenure in the Senate and since, Santorum has spoken out strongly against Iran’s nuclear program, insisting that it is a serious threat not only to Israel, but to the US itself.

Like Voight, Santorum recognizes that the fate of the US is directly tied to the fate of Israel.

For his trenchant support for Israel, and his outspoken concern about Iran’s nuclear program, as well as his support for domestic issues where he has not shied away from taking controversial, inconvenient position, Santorum’s critics have demonized him.

But undaunted, he continues to speak out.

Last week, Santorum led a solidarity mission to Israel. The majority of his colleagues were non-Jewish opinion shapers from Iowa, the first state to hold Republican presidential contests. Santorum explained that his goal in coming to Israel was not simply to show Israelis that the American people support us. It was to build support among Republicans in Iowa for a robust US engagement in foreign affairs based on supporting Israel, fighting America’s enemies and preventing the forces of hatred, like Hamas and Iran, from expanding their power.

Santorum’s chief concern is that weary of foreign policy failures, more and more Republicans are embracing the isolationism most identified with Senator Rand Paul. Paul is currently polling well in Iowa.

Over the weekend Paul referred to Hillary Clinton as “a war hawk,” and said, “I think the American public is coming more and more to where I am.”

Santorum is convinced that if Iowans are educated about the nature of the threats emanating from the region, and of Israel’s singular contribution to the cause of freedom and stability, their position can become the basis for a Republican foreign policy that rejects isolationism and embraces US leadership in world affairs as the only way to secure the US and strengthen its embattled allies.

In other words, like Voight, Santorum’s support for Israel is rooted in his concern about America, and its future. Like Voight, Santorum recognizes that the growing penchant among elite opinion shapers to ignore truth in the pursuit of moral relativism and fake sophistication or isolationism constitutes a danger to America.

This week the New York Times descended to yet another low, reporting as fact totally unsubstantiated accusations by the son of a senior Hamas terrorist that Israel tortured him and used him as a human shield during a brief incarceration.

But it appears that the jig may be winding down.

More and more people are following the lead of men like Voight and Santorum, and insisting that the truth be told.

This week more than 190 Hollywood luminaries followed Voight’s courageous lead and signed a public statement condemning Hamas.

Quin Hillyer, a reporter for National Review who accompanied Santorum on his mission, wrote Monday, “My visit to Israel last week confirmed that Iran and its fellow jihadists have good reason to see Israel and the United States in the same light. Israelis and Americans share the same humane, Western values…

“Israel is an oasis in a desert — in the physical, topographical sense but also metaphorically. It’s an oasis of reason, human decency and justice appropriately grounded in mercy.”

MacShane is right. It is vital for more non-Jews, who refuse to deny the truth that screams out to be told, to stand up to the lies and publicly stand with Israel. It is the job of Israel and Jewish communities throughout the world to empower them by among other things, reducing the power of Israel’s enemies to make them pay a price for their decency.

PORTUGAL’S POT


pot art 3This won’t shut the legalizers mouths, … but it should.

They don’t care about the facts, nor the truth – – SO FAR, they continue to point to Portugal as a role model, even though …

On the front page of Portugal’s Jornal de Notícias, their newspaper, a poll points out that the Portuguese people now oppose the trend of Europe and two of our most gullible and liberal states – -

ISIS CAPTURED HIGH-TECH ROCKETS?


By Thomas Gibbons-Neff August 25 at 3:32 PM  //  AP

Islamic State militants stormed a Syrian airbase over the weekend, routing the remaining elements of the country’s army from northern Raqqah province and reportedly seizing a cache of shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles.

The seizure of Tabqa air base, while not the first installation of its type to fall to militants, highlights the Islamic State’s gains in the region and the group’s continued pilfering of advanced military equipment, particularly the surface-to-air missile systems known as MANPADS, short for Man Portable Air Defense Systems.

Matt Schroeder, a senior researcher at the Switzerland-based research group Small Arms Survey and author of a recent report on MANPADS in Syria, believes that the takeover of Tabqa airbase could mark a “significant proliferation” of the weapons across the region.

“What we do know from previous airfield seizures is that these places are a source of MANPADS and similar weapons,” Schroeder said.

It is difficult to independently confirm that Islamic State seized MANPADS from Tabqa.  Charles Lister, an analyst at Brookings Doha Center who has tracked the flow of weapons in the region, tweeted a photo that purportedly showed an Islamic State fighter wielding what appeared to be MANPADS.

Schroeder did not know the model of the system but noted it has the characteristics of an SA-18 and other Soviet MANPADS.

“This is not a system we see often,” Schroeder said. “We know very little about it.”

The SA-18 is one of eight MANPADS variants in militant hands that have been documented by Small Arms Survey. While most are Soviet-era models, the Russian Federation SA-24 and Chinese FN-6 have been sighted in the almost four-year-old conflict.

For Damien Spleeters, an investigator for Conflict Armament Research who just 10 days ago was documenting the weapons of the Islamic State in northern Iraq and Syria, the takeover of Tabqa airbase is just another example of the Islamic State expanding its arsenal of advanced weaponry.

“Usually when you take an airbase you don’t just find one or two systems,” Spleeters said. “You find a lot more than that because airbases are meant to store those types of weapons.”

Spleeters added that the prevalence of advanced systems like the SA-24, which can hit aircraft flying at up to 20,000 feet, is “very worrying.”

Even so, both Spleeters and Schroeder stressed that MANPADS are “systems” made up of various components that have to be assembled before they can be used to shoot down an aircraft.

“There’s a limited shelf life for these type of weapons,” Spleeters said. “There’s a lot of parameters in the picture.”

Most MANPADS, for instance, depend on batteries, which usually lasts only a few years when in storage and a few seconds when activated. When powered, the battery allows the missile to lock on to its target, but only for “a brief window,” Spleeters explained. Once the battery is expended, the weapon is useless.

It’s possible militants are trying to work around that limitation by using a homemade recharging system for one particular MANPADS variant. C.J. Chivers, of the New York Times, first reported the case of a Syrian rebel with the SA-7 outfitted with such a system.

“If they have a recharging capability there’s no telling how many SA-7s might be available to them,” Spleeters said.

First fielded in the late 60′s, the SA-7 is one of the world’s most prevalent MANPADS. While a number of variants exist, it has been used to shoot down aircraft since the Vietnam War. State Department officials said they are concerned that the use of MANPADS poses a threat to civil aviation in Syria.

Rachel Stohl, an expert on arms control at the Stimson Center, believes that like prior conflicts in the region, that the Syrian civil war will have long standing ramifications for MANPADS proliferation in the Middle East.

“There’s no question that the region is going to have to deal with a legacy of these weapons,” Stohl said. “You don’t just put the immediate area at risk, there is a ripple effect.”

Stohl noted that the loss of Taqba airbase and its stores of weaponry highlights the need for aggressive stockpile management of MANPADS and the risks posed to the international community when a government loses control of its territory.

“These are government depots being raided,” Stohl said. “Hopefully this is an opportunity to have a dialogue about best practices when it comes to storing these types of weapons.”

“These instances rekindle an interest in bringing these systems under control,” Schroeder said. “When sent to volatile they regions have the ability to be pilfered en mass.”

U.S. officials say they have plans to address the proliferation of conventional weapons, like MANPADS, in Syria and are coordinating with partners in international organizations and non-profit groups.

BROWN or GREENE — WHO IS OF MORE IMPORT?


U.S. Army Major General Harold Greene was buried today at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors, including a caisson, two escort platoons, casket team, firing party, colors team, and a caparisoned horse. The U.S. Army band, “Pershing’s Own,” played softly as the funeral procession made its way down the long hill past the rows of simple white gravestones to bring General Greene to his final resting place.

The graveside service began with a few words, followed by a 13-gun salute. The major general’s widow, Dr. Susan Myers, was seated in the front row. To her right was their son 1st Lt. Matthew Greene, his daughter Amelia Greene, followed by Major General Greene’s father, also Harold Greene.

After three rifle volleys and the playing of “Taps,” the American flag, once placed on the major general’s casket, was carefully folded as the band played “America the Beautiful.” U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno presented the flag to his widow, and additional flags to his children and father.

General Greene, 55, became the highest-ranking fatality in the war in Afghanistan after an Afghan military police officer opened fire on Aug. 5th, 2014.

Some People were missing: No President; No Vice President; No Secretary of State; No Secretary of Defense. It WAS confirmed, however, that President Obama was playing golf at the time of the funeral!

Yet, President Obama, disrespectful A$$hole that he is, did send representatives to Michael Brown’s funeral.

11 SECRETS REVEALED


The year was 1947. Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little more than 66 years ago, numerous witnesses claim that an Unidentified Flying Object, (UFO), with five aliens aboard, crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico.  This is a well-known incident that many say has long been covered-up by the U.S. Air Force, as well as other Federal Agencies and Organizations.  However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April, year 1948, nine months after the historic day, the following people were born:

  • Barrack Obama Sr.
  • Albert A. Gore, Jr.
  • Hillary Rodham
  • William J. Clinton
  • John F. Kerry
  • Howard Dean
  • Nancy Pelosi
  • Dianne Feinstein
  • Charles E. Schumer
  • Barbara Boxer
  • Joe Biden

This is the obvious consequence of aliens breeding with sheep and jack-asses.

I truly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you. It certainly did for me.  And now you can stop wondering why they support the bill to help all Illegal Aliens.

HAMAS: EXPOSED


BREAKING:  Captured Hamas Combat Manual Explaining Benefits of Human Shields

A Hamas manual on “Urban Warfare” found by the Israeli Defense Forces makes it unmistakably clear that Hamas INTENTIONALLY causes civilian casualties amongst its own people.   This manual encourages its fighters to engage in battles in civilian populated areas in order to draw an Israeli response.

  • Where is the U.N. Human Rights Council?
  • Where is Amnesty International?
  • Where is Human Rights Watch?
  • Where is the international media and Middle East pundits.
  • Where are all the liberal law experts?

child shieldThjs is ‘Exhibit A’ which indicts Hamas for war crimes and crimes against humanity by placing the people of Gaza as human shields,” said Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, dean and founder and associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in the Gaza Strip found a Hamas manual on “Urban Warfare,” which belonged to the Shuja’iya Brigade of Hamas’ military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades.

The manual explains how the civilian population can be used against IDF forces and reveals that Hamas knows the IDF is committed to minimizing harm to civilians.

Throughout Operation Protective Edge, Hamas has continuously used the civilian population of Gaza as human shields. The discovery of a Hamas “urban warfare” manual by IDF forces reveals that Hamas’ callous use of the Gazan population was intentional and preplanned.

This Hamas urban warfare manual exposes two truths: (1) The terror group knows full well that the IDF will do what it can to limit civilian casualties. (2) The terror group exploits these efforts by using civilians as human shields against advancing IDF forces.

The Manual:

In a portion entitled “Limiting the Use of Weapons,” the manual explains that:

The soldiers and commanders (of the IDF) must limit their use of weapons and tactics that lead to the harm and unnecessary loss of people and [destruction of] civilian facilities. It is difficult for them to get the most use out of their firearms, especially of supporting fire [e.g. artillery].

Clearly Hamas knows the IDF will limit its use of weapons in order to avoid harming civilians, including refraining from using larger firepower to support for infantry.

The manual goes on to explain that the “presence of civilians are pockets of resistance” that cause three major problems for advancing troops:

(1) Problems with opening fire

(2) Problems in controlling the civilian population during operations and afterward

(3) Assurance of supplying medical care to civilians who need it

Lastly, the manual discusses the benefits for Hamas when civilian homes are destroyed:

The destruction of civilian homes: This increases the hatred of the citizens towards the attackers [the IDF] and increases their gathering [support] around the city defenders (resistance forces[i.e. Hamas]).

It is clear that Hamas actually desires the destruction of homes and civilian infrastructure, knowing it will increase hatred for the IDF and support their fighters.

Why Shuja’iya is Important

It is also of no small importance that this manual belongs to the Shuja’iya Brigade. The IDF fought a major battle in the neighborhood of Shuja’iya, which had been turned into a terrorist stronghold. The discovery of this manual suggests that the destruction in Shuja’iya was always part of Hamas’ plan.

FERGUSON’S FREEDOM


THIS CAME THIS MORNING; I’M REBLOGGING IT:

~  ~ ~ ~ ~          ~  ~ ~ ~ ~          ~  ~ ~ ~ ~

By now you’ve heard about the race wars in Ferguson, Missouri, in the news. It’s difficult to miss it on TV, radio, newspapers, and social media!

Ferguson Market & Liquor, the store that Michael Brown robbed before roughing up a clerk, was among the many businesses later looted by rioters. The store manager pleaded with reporters not to say that he had called the police on Brown.

“They kill us if they think we are responsible.”

This comment tells a different story about this event than the deceitful one Al Sharpton, the Black Panther Party and Eric Holder are telling-a story of fear and intimidation and race baiting.

After the video of Brown’s robbery came out, despite the best efforts of Obama, Holder and Missouri’s Democratic governor, Sharpton declared that Michael Brown was not on trial. “America is on trial!”

For once, Sharpton was right. America is on trial.

America is on trial to see if we will stand with the terrified store worker or the 300-pound thug who robbed and abused him.

Will we stand with the police trying to hold the looters at bay or with the thugs using Brown’s death as an excuse to smash windows and steal merchandise?

Will we stand with the New York Times and the rest of the mainstream media trying to portray Ferguson as a racist community no different from the segregated South of the 1950s, or listen to the voices of its citizens, black and white, trying to tell the truth-a more complicated truth — about their community?

Will we stand with the Democratic Party, the left and the race-baiters or with small business owners trying to earn a living?

Will we stand with Eric Holder and Barack Obama, who have inflamed the situation in Ferguson as much as racial arsonists such as Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, or with those who seek lawful calm so that the facts of this case can emerge?

Will we stand for pursuing the truth in this case, whatever it might be, or for allowing a crude and destructive propagandistic truth to be manufactured by those seeking to divide our country and condemn it as racist to its core?

I know who the Freedom Center will stand with – the honest people of Ferguson who have been brutalized by these senseless acts…the American people – of all races and creeds – who are sick and tired of the Left drawing lines on race and using it to exploit their agenda…

Who will you stand with?

john, please stand with the Freedom Center today by signing this petition to Stand Up For Truth, Common Decency and Civil Order.

David Horowitz Freedom Center

We will send a list of people who signed this petition to President Obama and Eric Holder to tell them enough is enough!

So after you sign the petition, I hope you will make an emergency, tax-deductible donation to the Center to help us get this petition into the hands of millions more Americans like you.

America is on trial to see if we will allow the street thugs of Ferguson, the media thugs of MSNBC and the ideological thugs of the left to leave that store manager afraid and helpless and the people of Ferguson living under a reign of terror.

This nation is on trial to decide whether we will be ruled by laws or the lawless cynicism of those in Washington D.C. who inflame racial fears for political advantage.

After the release of the Market & Liquor robbery video, an eyewitness account of Brown charging at Officer Wilson and the autopsy report that shows he was not shot in the back, as proponents of racial violence charged, the thugs of the media and the race-baiting industry are terrified. The truth is coming out and it’s time for us to give it one more push with this petition.

Officer Darren Wilson has been forced to leave his home and go into hiding. By standing up for Darren Wilson’s right to due process and for an unbiased an objective inquiry into this event, we are standing with the frightened small business owners and workers whom Wilson was defending against the looters, rioters and the thugs playing knockout games on our streets.

By standing up for law and common decency, we are standing up for America.

Sign the petition now. It’s time to end the reign of race hustlers like Sharpton and Jackson; it’s time for White House to stop using race to divide our nation; it’s time to protect our communities from criminal street rioters and looters; and it’s time to defend the law enforcement officers who stand between us and barbarism.

Sincerely,
David Horowitz

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 …

(thank you robin! You gave – we miss you!)

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.

OBAMA REFUSES ARMS TO ISRAEL!


Amid diplomatic tensions between US President Barack Obama’s administration and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, the US halted a shipment of air-to-ground missiles to Israel last month during Israel’s offensive in the Gaza Strip, accordiobama 1ng to a report in the Wall Street Journal.  

In July, Israel requested “through military-to-military channels a large number of Hellfire missiles”, a first batch of which was about to be released to Israel, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing Israeli and American officials.

But the Pentagon immediately put the shipment on hold, and top officials at the White House instructed US defense agencies to consult with the White House and the State Department before approving any additional Israeli requests, according to the report.

A senior Obama administration official was quoted in the report as saying the decision to scrutinize future transfers at the highest levels amounted to “the United States saying ‘The buck stops here. Wait a second…It’s not OK anymore.”

The report depicted a context of poor relations between Obama and Netanyahu and claimed that the decision to halt the weapons transfer was made at a point when the White House and State Department became “increasingly disturbed by what they saw as heavy-handed battlefield tactics that they believed risked a humanitarian catastrophe,” in Gaza.

rack Obama has enabled Islamists worldwide both overtly and covertly, his insinuation of Islamist operatives into our government, the chaotic situation on our southern border and our immigration policy in general, American progressives may get to test that “big tent” allegiance to their Islamist friends sooner than they think.

SPEAKING OF MIRACLES . . . .


SayingShemaInGaza-230x150This was published in today’s Aish.com — Saying Shema in Gaza – The Jewish prayer stopped a would-be suicide bomber.  Turns out, she was Jewish.  by Rabbi Nechemia Coopersmith

I am rather skeptical when it comes to “miracle stories” – especially ones that emerge from war.  So I did not believe the story about the female suicide bomber in Gaza who flinched upon hearing the Israeli soldier cry out “Shema Yisrael”, allowing them to apprehend her.  Turns out the terrorists mother was an Israeli Jew who married an Arab, and the would-be suicide bomber was in fact a Jew whose soul was rattled upon hearing Shema.

Well, apparently the story is true.  An unnamed Israeli military source spoke to Breitbart News, revealing details about the attack that killed Lt. Goldin and two other soldiers, and he also mentioned the incident with the Jewish suicide bomber.  The article reports:

The officer explained how, after the suicide bombing that killed Lt. Goldin, a second kidnapping team of Hamas terrorists… ran back into the tunnel from which the terrorists emerged.  The tunnel led back into a mosque.  From the mosque, they escaped in a clearly marked UNRWA ambulance.  The terrorists then made contact with high-ranking Hamas officials hiding in the Islamic University.

Israeli intelligence intercepted a conversation between the kidnappers and the Hamas officials at the Islamic University and thus got all the particulars regarding the hiding place of the kidnappers.  Within minutes, the IAF attacked both the kidnappers’ location and the Islamic University.

In the midst of this attack, a second force of IDF soldiers–which had gone into a mosque looking for weapons, explosives, and rockets– encountered a female suicide bomber who was about to detonate the belt she wore, which would have resulted in the deaths of the soldiers.

One of the soldiers instinctively recited the opening words of the holiest Jewish prayer “Shema Yisrael”. The female suicide bomber hesitated and began trembling, giving the soldiers a chance to grab her and disable the device.

The soldiers then took her prisoner and turned her over to a counter-intelligence unit.  Their investigation uncovered that the female suicide bomber’s mother was a Jew who had married a Palestinian in Israel and, after the wedding, was smuggled against her will into Gaza.  There she lived a life filled with abuse and humiliation, and was basically a captive.  In addition to the female suicide bomber, there were two smaller children as well.  An armored force went in and rescued the two small children.

The story is reminiscent of Rabbi Eliezer Silver who rescued Jewish children in Europe who had been hidden during the Holocaust in Christian orphanages and monasteries.  The children themselves, raised as Christians for years, no longer knew they were Jewish.  And there were times the local priest denied harboring any Jewish children.  So how did Rabbi Silver discover the Jewish children? Dressed as a high ranking U.S. army officer, he would visit the children during bedtime and loudly proclaim “Shema Yisrael” – “Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One!”

Many children burst into tears and cried out “mommy” in the various languages they spoke.  The Shema which their mothers had said to them each night was so deeply ingrained in their minds they had not forgotten it.  And that is how the chaplains were able to identify the Jewish children.

The Shema saved those Israeli soldiers and rescued three Jewish souls – the suicide bomber and her two children — from the bowels of Gaza.  Something she heard, startled her. Her Jewish soul, buried by years of indoctrination, hate and abuse, was stirred.

My teacher, Rabbi Noah Weinberg, of blessed memory, would tell the story of Rabbi Silver as a lesson that the Jewish soul always has a pulse.  It is our responsibility to find the words that will penetrate. Through his tragic death Lt. Goldin enabled three bewildered Jewish souls to be brought back to their people.

YOU WON’T SEE THIS IN THE MSM


There’ll be zero attention to this most recent, scantily-covered-bit of news in the MSM (mainStreamMedia).   Ours is a capital held hostage by special interests.

Poised to roll-back its once-believed principled “no-lobbyists-in-my-Administration”-pledge, … the Obama White House and its Office of Management and Budget yesterday, issued a new rule that changes everything!

It will allow registered lobbyists to sit on as many as 1,000 government-industry boards. This is just in time, to rake in even more millions of dollars in contributions for the fast-approaching mid-term elections. Even clueless media members had only to watch who attends Obama’s fundraising events to know the truth, but it’s hard to type copy with one’s head in the sand!

Thus, the extent to which this Hitlerian despot will go, reveals the permanent corruption of our future if we do not take this nation back and expose this racist. Store-owners in riot torn Missouri can attest to Obama’s slow or non-existent attempt to quell this community organizer’s ultimate fantasy of this pied piper’s riots across America dreams!

All this is making it visible for those historians that might survive – really something to chronicle, huh?

THOSE WE LOST . . .


- – A music video dedicated to the fallen of the 2014 Gaza Conflict – -

Out of Israel comes a Video you should watch.

To see the photos of these young men who died in their youth brings into question “WHY’?When one looks at what all these young men died for – – to stop hate-filled, insane terrorists from firing over 3,000 missiles into their nation, trying to kill their families, their loved ones, one wonders how it will ever stop!

After all, Israel is such a tiny nation, surrounded by so many nations whose people are sworn enemies. We were warned thousands of years ago . . .

The Palestinians actually elected Hamas to govern them, meanwhile, Iran is building a nuclear bomb and now we have a man we elected, who is doing absolutely nothing to stop it!

40 years ago, when Viet Nam ended, who could ever have envisioned a scenario that would have brought us all to this point?

OBAMA: Don’t Be Too Critical Of Him


  • Hamas is attacking.  Israel is defending.
  • Russia is invading.
  • Russian planes have recently made 10 incursions into our airspace.
  • The Middle East is smoldering.
  • Boko Haram is kidnapping young girls, selling them into slavery, and massacring.
  • ISIS is marching, ruthlessly murdering all non-Islamic people.
  • Iran and N Korea are threatening.
  • American cities are crumbling.
  • Our southern border is dissolving.
  • Our debt is skyrocketing.
  • We’ve killed 55,000,000 babies and continuing . . .
  • Americans are hurting.
  • China calls our (leader from behind) Obama “Monkeyman”.
  • Our enemies are laughing.
  • But don’t worry; Obama is out fundraising or vacationing in the whitest area of the U.S. – Martha’s Vineyard!

Please take it easy on him, it is his first real job after all!

EBOLA


1st, it’s another sign we’re in END TIMES, but that’s my own conjecture, for a different article ….

Over a decade ago, when it first was in the news, the great fear was that it would go — AIRBORNE.

Today’s headlines tell us that it’s gone “out-of-control”.

The fact that it is in two separate nations has people suspecting a CONSPIRACY, even though the authorities have said it’s now thought to be carried by bats.

Monkeys are known carriers, but bats are known to migrate, so though a conspiracy is not likely, is that a possibility — a “dirty bomb”!  Lord willing, those who would try will die first!

In light of what the black plague did to Europe’s population, and the “how & why it spread” and decimated a third of Europe’s population, … to intentionally bring infected people back to the U.S. is … at best, questionable.

It was spread by fleas carried by rats; those who were superstitious fled to the mountains and by-in-large, they survived.  Those who remained in the rat-infested cities often died.  If it’s gone airborne, with today’s jet travel, we’re all in trouble!

Not that this, or anything else from the growing mountain of evidence, will stop the mainstream media, the UN and Barack Obama from condemning Israel for supposedly targeting civilians.

The Israel Defense Forces posted this photo on Facebookwith this explanation:

MANIPULATING YOU: . . . AMERICA’S LEFTIST MEDIA


The article below, exposes what we knew — that the leftist press is well organized in order to convince the public that the press still has our backs — as secretly … a massive number of journalists, from the most “progressive” schools all across America, work together to subvert traditional American Values!

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A prominent CNN commentator, the top two political reporters for The Huffington Post, a Reuters reporter, the editor of The Nation magazine, a producer for Al Jazeera America television, a U.S. News & World Report columnist, and approximately two dozen Huffington Post contributors are among the more than 1,000 members of Gamechanger Salon.

“Top Secret – Founded by leftwing activist Billy Wimsatt, the group is a secretive digital gathering of writers, opinion leaders, activists and political hands who share information, ideas and strategy via a closed Google group.

The group’s existence was discovered by Media Trackers through an open records request filed with a University of Wisconsin professor who happened to be a member of the network.

Sally Kohn, formerly a Fox News contributor, now works for CNN reliably echoing pro-Obama Administration talking points and championing leftwing ideas as a network commentator.  Kohn is also a member of Gamechanger Salon, and e-mails show that she occasionally approached the group’s membership and asked them to promote her television appearances.

“I’m guest co-hosting CNN’s Crossfire tonight at 6:30pm EST, with fellow co-host Newt Gingrich. I would be grateful for folks (a) helping spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, etc to encourage people to tune in; and (b) tuning in and live tweeting during the show,” Kohn wrote to the group on January 14 of this year.

In another e-mail, Kohn pitched her TED talk about working as a liberal at Fox News.

“I would be grateful for any shares and reactions. Here is a straightforward, sample tweet[:] Watch @sallykohn’s amazing TED talk on emotional correctness: on.ted.com/Kohn” she wrote. “Thanks for everything all of you do every day to make the world a better place!” she signed off.

Amanda Terkel, the “Senior Political Reporter and Politics Managing Editor at The Huffington Post,” is a member of Gamechanger Salon along with The Huffington Post’s Washington bureau chief, Ryan Grim.

In mid-July, Terkel and Grim jointly wrote a piece about a leftwing effort to push Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) to run for president.  The pair of reporters heavily quoted Erica Sagrans, a fellow member of Gamechanger Salon and leading organizer of the “Ready For Warren” effort, and cited Billy Wimsatt’s support for the project.  Wimsatt’s work as founder of Gamechanger Salon and the reporters’ own membership in the group, along with Sagrans’ membership, went unreported.

In a subsequent piece Terkel again reported on the effort to recruit Warren for a presidential bid, and a previous piece by Grim contrasted Warren with presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

A former New York Times freelance columnist who now works as an energy and commodities reporter for Thomson Reuters is also a member of Gamechanger Salon.  Anna Louie Sussman is listed as an “investigative reporter and journalist” on the Gamechanger Salon membership list, and while her beat focuses on energy issues, she also writes about “local and international human rights and social justice issues” according to her website.

Katrina vanden Heuvel is the editor and publisher of The Nation magazine, a prominent and well-known periodical of leftwing political and social thought.  She is also a member of Gamechanger Salon and a regular opinion writer for the online edition of The Washington Post.

A late-July column for the Post by vanden Heuvel entitled “Building a progressive alternative to ALEC” hit on a theme regularly mentioned on Gamechanger Salon: liberals must build an alternative to the American Legislative Exchange Council.

Lisa Graves, who leads the Madison, Wisconsin-based Center for Media and Democracy, is also a member of Gamechanger Salon, and – according to e-mails reviewed by Media Trackers – regularly promotes material developed by CMD to attack ALEC and the right-of-center lawmakers who tend to make up the majority of ALEC’s active legislative membership.

Vanden Heuvel suggested in her column that liberals support the efforts of the American Legislative and Issue Campaign Exchange – ALICE (a leftwing counterpart to ALEC) – and the Progressive States Network. Gamechanger Salon member Prof. Joel Rogers of the University of Wisconsin Madison founded ALICE. Vanden Heuvel in a 2012 column for the Post wrote about Rogers founding ALICE.

Not once does she appear to disclose her membership in Gamechanger Salon along with some of the very people she writes about.

Jordan Flaherty was, as of last year, a producer for Al Jazeera America television.  He is also listed as a member of Gamechanger Salon and for a while he occasionally blogged for The Huffington Post.

In addition to working at the left-leaning American Sustainable Business Council, David Brodwin writes an online column for U.S. News & World Report.  Brodwin is a member of Gamechanger Salon, and on July 14 he published a column arguing that small business owners support a minimum wage increase.  Fascinatingly, the Obama Administration’s U.S. Department of Labor relies on Brodwin’s American Sustainable Business Council to argue that very point in a recent “fact-sheet” advocating for a minimum wage hike.

Dozens of members of the leftwing network have contributed columns to The Huffington Post, and others have written opinion pieces for several other publications. The full extent of the network’s activity and effectiveness at amplifying and coordinating left-leaning messaging campaigns has yet to be fully explored.

LAWLESSNESS IN AMERICA


Here’s one cop’s view.  I’m not saying it’s most cops that think like this, but certainly, president Obama has to have set this type of thinking in motion.

What we’re watching is one man’s (Obama’s) actions which are accelerating the demise of America and the leftists love it!

INSIGHTS INTO THE FAMILY RESIDING AT 1600 PENNSYLVANIA


fEATURED In the news tonight: 16 year old Malia Obama was seen at a concert and it caused a “stir”.

At first, I thought “who cares” but then … I realized it interested me in one aspect … and that caused me to wonder what kind of “music” she likes – – -

Yes; I believe that a person’s taste in music can ‘tell’ a lot about one’s character … or lack thereof!

With that goal in mind, and the focus on what kind of a person she is … well, that reflects on her parents as well, so I thought you (my readers) might be interested in the type of  lyrics which come from this RAPPER whose concert she attended.

I picked one of his songs to copy for you below.   I only copied part but here’s a link if you want to pursue it.

To me, it confirmed some things … let’s see what it confirms to you about the folks we have living at 1600 Pennsylvania …  I think if you read it, you may find some very evident SICKNESS.  Note too, that this song, which I picked at random, mentions TRAYVON!

Take a look at these lyrics below:

“Smoke Again”

Acid Rap!

I don’t even talk to them on the phone again

Leave in the AM, on the road again

So bitch, let’s fuck so I can smoke again

I gotta smoke again, I got shit to do

 

[Verse 1: Chance The Rapper]

Who smokin in my car?

It’s that nigga Chano

AKA Mr. Bennett

AK Tony Montano

I’ve got some folks in low end

I got some folks in c-note

AK hundred dinero

You ever seen Casino?

I just got back with ‘Bino

I got a bitch but she know

Her friends done did the Dino

That’s that Chicago lingo

Flamin’ hots with Cheese

And a kiwi Mistic

My dick won’t even call her

Cause she left all that lipstick

Niggas be on dirt

That’s why I stay on petty

I know that bangers jam

That’s why my hands stay ready

Flip the candy yum

That’s the fucking bombest

Lean all on the square

That’s a fuckin’ rhombus

 

[Hook]

 

[Verse 2: Chance the Rapper]

Who’s sneaking in the club?

That’s that youngster rapper

Un-saran wrap the purple

Wrap that blunt under after   (a “blunt is pot)

Smoke all out the window

Cops could eat a dick

If you ain’t the hitter

You just might be the lick

Flame on, flame on

I’m your bitch’s ringtone

She like when I rap raps

But better when I sing songs

No Drake, but I get my Trey on

Killin’ in the hood like Trayvon

Shoppin’ like I got a coupon

Savin’ like I got a cape on

Cookin’ crack in my apron

Dressed like a nigga had 8 proms

Tell shorty I may change

And I made it and I napalm

Trippy shit to watch

Drugs while on the clock

Acid on the face

That’s a work of art

[Verse 3: Ab-Soul]

Soulo ho ho twerk somethin’

Throw it back like you tryna hurt somethin’

I’m so deaf, I ain’t ever heard nothin’

My name herb, take herb, smoke herb (say word?)

How ’bout you? No dap, but I’ll take a pound or two

No doubt like Gwen Stefani’s group

Let me put my mouth where you potty, boo

(IGH!)

Them niggas pissed, need potty training

They movement shit, that’s a potty train

She ain’t left yet, but she probably came

We kicked it then I score, soccer game

She was a phony goalie

I got great aim though, don’t insult me

I’ll give it to ya straight, this is what she told me

My name Solo cause I’m the one and only

She only got you as a nigga on the side

That’s a nigga on the side of a side bitch, homie

Then we got out a Dodge, like them Dukes of Hazzard

Music and tabs of Lucy, take your chance with this

TRUTH ABOUT THE ILLEGAL ALIEN CHILDREN


IT’S A SCAM!

It’s been reported everywhere — The New York Times, The Washington Post, Fox News — that the William Wilberforce Sex Trafficking Act requires that any non-Mexican children who show up on our border be admitted and given a hearing. (New York Times, July 7, 2014: “Immigrant Surge Rooted in Law to Curb Child Trafficking.”)

The problem, we’ve been told, is that a loophole in the sex trafficking law mandates these hearings — or “removal proceedings.”

But there is no such loophole.

The fact that people on both sides of the aisle are telling the same lie about this law is worrisome. Are Republicans being tricked into thinking we need an emergency bill, so that, two weeks later, we’ll see them emerging from a conference, saying:

We fixed the loophole! We didn’t get everything we wanted, but you can hear about that later.

No, tell me now.

Well, remember amnesty? It’s kind of in this bill. But the headline is: We closed the loophole! So no more worries about that loophole. But yeah, amnesty passed.

Why else would everyone be carrying on about a non-existent loophole? I know they’re mistaken because I read the law.

The Wilberforce law states, in relevant part:

“Any unaccompanied alien child sought to be removed by the Department of Homeland Security, except for an unaccompanied alien child from a contiguous country (i.e. Mexico — or Canada, so as not to sound discriminatory) … shall be — placed in removal proceedings … eligible for relief … at no cost to the child and provided access to counsel.”

Obviously, that’s the whole ball of wax. Once a kid is in, given La Raza attorneys and a hearing date, he’s never going home. No immigration judge is going to listen to a lawyer-manufactured sob story and say, “No, I’m sorry, that didn’t touch my heart. You have to go back to Huehuetenango.”

But the law’s definition of “unaccompanied alien child” limits the hearings to kids who have no relatives in the United States.

If your relatives live here, the law assumes you’re not being sex-trafficked — you’re trying to join them.

Here’s the definition — note subsection (C):

“(g) Definitions

“(2) the term ‘unaccompanied alien child’ means a child who –

(A) has no lawful immigration status in the United States;

(B) has not attained 18 years of age; and

(C) with respect to whom –

(i) there is no parent or legal guardian in the United States; or (ii) no parent or legal guardian in the United States is available to provide care and physical custody.”

The law is not — as George Will suggested on “Fox News Sunday” — a general humanitarian mandate allowing all 2 billion poor children of the world to show up at our border and be told, “Welcome to America!” It’s a law to combat sex trafficking.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Vice President Joe Biden wrote the law — and Feinstein isn’t stupid. She’s well aware of illegal immigration. That’s why the law specifically excludes two huge categories of illegal aliens from getting hearings: (1) Mexicans; and (2) children who have relatives in the U.S.

Those cases look more like illegal immigration than sex trafficking. (Didn’t anyone wonder why Mexican kids are excluded?)

Mexicans make up the lion’s share of illegal immigrants in the U.S., and children with relatives already living in the U.S. are probably just trying to rejoin family — not trying to escape a fiendish kidnapper about to sell them into sex slavery.

According to last Friday’s New York Times, almost 90 percent of the 53,000 illegal alien kids given refugee status since October have already been transferred to parents or relatives living in the U.S.

By the law’s clear terms, those 47,000 kids should have been summarily turned away at the border — just as Mexican children are.

(Democrats wailing about a “humanitarian” crisis — after calculating the precise number of voters they need — evidently don’t care about the Mexican kids.)

No law needs to be fixed. The only thing that needs to be fixed is the president.

Obama has gone mad and is defying the law in order to “fundamentally transform America” — as he pledged to do during the 2008 campaign — into Latin America. (Luckily for George Will, he won’t be around by the time Latin America gets to his neighborhood.)

Any Republicans pushing for an immigration bill to seal an imaginary loophole aren’t fighting Obama; they’re helping him.

Constitutionally, the remedy for a president defying the law so he can assist an alien invasion is impeachment. But the media won’t let us impeach Obama — and Republicans don’t have the votes, anyway. The only way for Americans to fight back is to put large Republican majorities in the House and Senate this November.

IN A TIME OF WAR, OBAMA IS FINANCING THE ENEMY


1 week ago today, we gave Gaza (therefore Hamas terrorists) $47,000,000!

That is not only illegal, it is in opposition to the will of the American people!

It was during the middle of the war in Gaza!

The following day, the traitor of Viet Nam, (40 years ago John Kerry – now our Secretary of State), while in Egypt, announced our Federal Aviation Authority was shutting down all flights into and out of Israel – – allegedly because of airline safety – another blatant, and obvious lie!

How do we know that was a lie? Passenger airlines have been shot down in other areas (Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, or even as recent as Ukraine, yet we’ve not shut down flights to those areas.

Also, the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces – their army) announced they’d found terrorist’s missiles in United Nations’ schools for children, located in Gaza, the U. N. turned around and gave them back to Hamas! These were illegal terrorist missiles hidden in children’s schools, which have now been returned to terrorists to kill more Israelis!

When our nation adopts, as a centerpiece of its Middle East policy, the establishment of a Palestinian terrorist state, in areas which Israel is in control of, it amounts to nothing less than a blatant siding with and financing of, … our enemy and theirs, in time of war!

Therefore, one can only conclude that OBAMA is not only an enemy of Israel, he is an enemy of Americans that support Israel! He is, … in our name financing the enemy in a time of war!

SUBVERTING AMERICA WITH FREEDOM


My Comment:

Thanks to the angry, lawless, subversive president and his Attorney General, what is being pushed as “fair” to the public (which has been lied to and deceived) and to addicts, this will play a significant part in the soon demise of the greatest nation earth.

THIS BELOW, IS A RESPONSE TO THE NEW YORK TIMES EDITORIAL re: legalizing pot - published by the NY Times on 7/30/14:

“To the Editor:

Your opinion, in “Repeal Prohibition, Again,” that marijuana should be legalized is based in part on an assumption that during Prohibition “people kept drinking.” Prohibition reduced the public’s alcohol intake considerably. The rate of alcohol-associated illness dropped in similar fashion. Prohibition was perhaps a political failure, but an impressive success from a public health standpoint.   (My emphasis.)

Both alcohol and marijuana can lead to the chronic disease of addiction, directly affect the brain and negatively affect function. As more than 10 percent of our population has addictive disease, your statement that marijuana is “far less dangerous than alcohol” doesn’t reflect decades of research demonstrating risks associated with both of these drugs.

Why would we possibly wish to add to the alcohol- and tobacco-driven personal and public health catastrophe with yet another substance to which some people will become addicted?

Some people use marijuana currently. Legalize it, and more people will use more marijuana, leading to more addiction, lower productivity and higher societal costs.

OBAMA EXPOSED!


Damning evidence has emerged of US President Barack Obama’s dismissal of Israel’s position in favor of supporting the position of Hamas and its allies during ceasefire talks.

Though the Obama administration denied the truth, a “senior US official” leaked an audio recording of a telephone conversation between Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to Israel’s Channel One.

In it the 35-minute conversation, which took place on Sunday, the US President appears downright hostile at points, and even cuts off Netanyahu in the middle of his protestations over a one-sided truce proposal which would have seen Hamas receive all its key demands, but that Israel ultimately rejected.

The following is an excerpt of the conversation, published in Hebrew by Channel One:

The Leaked Conversation

Obama: I demand that Israel agrees to an immediate, unilateral ceasefire and halt all offensive activities – particularly airstrikes.

Netanyahu: What will Israel receive in return for a ceasefire?

Obama: I believe that Hamas will stop firing rockets – silence will be met with silence.

Netanyahu: Hamas violated all five previous ceasefires, it is a terrorist organization which is dedicated to the destruction of Israel.

Obama: I repeat and expect Israel to unilaterally stop all its military activity. The pictures of destruction from Gaza distance the world from Israel’s position.

Netanyahu: Kerry’s proposal was completely unrealistic and gives Hamas the military and diplomatic advantage.

Obama: Within a week of the end of Israel’s military activities, Qatar and Turkey will begin negotiations with Hamas on the basis of the 2012 understanding [following the end of Operation Pillar of Defense - ed.], including Israel’s commitment to removing the siege and restrictions on Gaza,

Netanyahu: Qatar and Turkey are the biggest supporters of Hamas. It is impossible to rely on them to be fair mediators.

Obama: I trust Qatar and Turkey, and Israel is in no position to choose its mediators.

Netanyahu: I object, because Hamas is able to continue and to fire rockets and to use tunnels for terror attacks…

Obama – interrupts Netanyahu mid-sentence: The ball is in Israel’s court – it is obligated to end all military activities.

In light of our people’s overwhelming support of Israel, our President has no business demanding or pressuring Israel.

Like it or not, Obama is a traitor and does NOT represent the will of the American people!

Americans need to be alarmed by what Obama’s actions on behalf of Hamas reveal about the general direction of American Middle East policy under his leadership.

When US President Barack Obama phoned Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday night, in the middle of a security cabinet meeting, he ended any remaining doubt regarding his policy toward Israel and Hamas.

Obama called Netanyahu while the premier was conferring with his senior ministers about how to proceed in Gaza. Some ministers counseled that Israel should continue to limit our forces to specific pinpoint operations aimed at destroying the tunnels of death that Hamas has dug throughout Gaza and into Israeli territory.

Others argued that the only way to truly destroy the tunnels, and keep them destroyed, is for Israel to retake control over the Gaza Strip.

No ministers were recommending that Israel end its operations in Gaza completely. The longer our soldiers fight, the more we learn about the vast dimensions of the Hamas’s terror arsenal, and about the Muslim Brotherhood group’s plans and strategy for using it to destabilize, demoralize and ultimately destroy Israeli society.

The IDF’s discovery of Hamas’s Rosh Hashana plot was the last straw for any Israeli leftists still harboring fantasies about picking up our marbles and going home. Hamas’s plan to use its tunnels to send hundreds of terrorists into multiple Israeli border communities simultaneously and carry out a massacre of unprecedented scope, replete with the abduction of hostages to Gaza, was the rude awakening the Left had avoided since it pushed for Israel’s 2005 withdrawal from Gaza.

In other words, in their discussion Sunday night, Netanyahu and his ministers were without illusions about the gravity of the situation and the imperative of winning — however defined.

But then the telephone rang. And Obama told Netanyahu that Israel must lose. He wants an unconditional “humanitarian” cease-fire that will lead to a permanent one.

And he wants it now.

In contrast, the Obama administration is insisting on concluding a cease-fire immediately.

JewishWorldReview.com

And by the way, the eventual terms of that cease-fire must include opening Hamas-controlled Gaza’s borders with Egypt and Israel and ending Israel’s maritime blockade of the Gaza coast. That is, the cease-fire must allow Hamas to rebuild its arsenal of death and destruction quickly, with US political and financial support.

Until Obama made the call, there was lingering doubt among some Israelis regarding his intentions. Some thought that US Secretary of State John Kerry might have been acting of his own accord last Friday night when he tried to force Israel to accept Hamas’s cease-fire terms.

But then Obama made his phone call. And all doubts were dispelled.

Kerry is just a loyal steward of Obama’s foreign policy.

Obama is siding with Hamas, and its Muslim Brotherhood patrons in Qatar and Turkey, against Israel, and its Sunni Arab supporters — Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates.

It is Obama who demands that Hamas have open borders so it can resupply, and receive billions of dollars — starting with an immediate cash injection of $47 million from US taxpayers — so it can pay North Korea for more missiles and import building materials to reconstruct its tunnels.

The fact that the US’s current preference for genocidal, Jew-hating jihadists over the only liberal, pro-American, stable US ally in the Middle East is a White House position, rather than that of a rogue Secretary of State was actually exposed even before Obama’s phone call.

Sunday CNN’s Candy Crowley interviewed Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes. She asked him what the administration thinks Israel can do to prevent civilians from being killed in Gaza beyond what it is already doing. Rhodes replied, “I think you can always do more.”

In other words, Rhodes said that no matter what precautions Israel takes to try to minimize Palestinian civilian deaths in Gaza, the administration will never be satisfied. The White House will never acknowledge that Israel is in the right, or that it is fighting a moral war against a barbaric foe. And since the administration will never be satisfied, Israel can expect to be condemned by various UN bodies, including the Security Council, because no matter what it does to try to earn the support of the administration, it will never receive such support.

The discovery that the Obama administration is entirely in Hamas’s corner hit all of Israel hard. But it hit the Left the hardest. Few on the Right, which recognized Obama’s hostility from the outset of his presidency, were surprised.

OBAMA SWITCHED SIDES? NOT REALLY!

JESUS, GUNS, AND VOTING REPUBLICAN!


Maybe I misunderstood this bigoted woman I followed back from Burien yesterday . . . maybe not.   Her bumper sticker was simple enough, boiled down, it explained her philosophy, in just 10 words.

“Get Real!  Like Jesus would own a gun and vote Republican!”

Seems almost logical, doesn’t it?  She’d watered down her bigotry and guilelessly thinned it to conceal it – trouble is, it’s apparent she’s become too simplistic.

She doesn’t understand that:

  1. Our founding fathers fought the same unGodly types we are having to face again, the Obamas, the Kerrys, plus many myopic Republicans and all Democrats..
  2. In the end, when subterfuge fails, those King George-types have always used violence to keep people oppressed.
  3. Therefore, our founding fathers wrote into our Constitution that war may be necessary (at least the threat of it) to maintain our freedoms and therefore guns in the hands of the people, are necessary (it’s the only power they respect!)
  4. These United States of America were formed to allow us to freely worship our God!
  5. Our God allowed our nation to be established by intelligent, learned men who sought to establish a nation that could remain free, worship and serve a living God – the only nation doing so . . . other than Israel.
  6. These founders established checks and balances for that purpose and over-riding our Constitution as Obama is continuing to do, was and is with evil intent.
  7. To this woman, and the others of her ilk, hating America first, the HOLOCAUST never happened … or at least it can’t happen here!   Yet her bigotry is laying the foundation for it!

This woman couldn’t open her mind to another intellectual — Dinesh D’Souza’s film “America” if she tried . . . it would send her from the theatre spouting expletives, ranting and raving . . .

Her bumper sticker exhibits her lack of understanding, wisdom and the knowledge that America is mankind’s LAST, BEST hope…

GAZA AND OUR MEDIA


 

I heard numerous conservative talk shows today speak of the conversation between our Socialist President and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.   The station’s shows all confirmed that the DEMAND by Obama, that Israel Cease-Fire immediately was for real.

Of course MSNBC, our most pro-leftist propaganda-news network, the one that has consistently “carried water” for the president has issued a denial.   They’re still covering for his inept, malevolent agenda to support Islamic middle eastern forces.

Gaza has fired over 2,600 missiles into Israel after digging hundreds of miles of tunnels into Israel in three weeks.   It’s well documented that Hamas, Hezbollah, Fatah, PLO (Palestine Liberation Org), Al-Aksa (sp?) Brigade have all vowed to kill all Jews.

This morning, it’s confirmed again … Obama is a Liar-In-Chief!  Arutz Sheva has also published the truth!   Obama is exposed again!

Another instance proves Hamas cannot be trusted.  Israel agreed to a short humanitarian (2 hour Cayce-fire) but Hamas broke it this morning within 5 minutes.

Strip Wednesday morning, ignoring US President Barack Obama’s reported attempt to strongarm Israel into an immediate ceasefire.

IDF Radio, which reports the military advance, said that “it can be estimated that the IDF received permission from the political echelon to advance forward in various sectors in northern and southern Gaza.”

The advance is into more densely populated areas, it said, and the movement is being accompanied by fire, and receiving close air support from aircraft. Two soldiers have been lightly injured, so far, from antitank fire, and a explosive charge was also activated against a tank. No one was hurt.

The IAF struck dozens of terror targets in north and central Gaza overnight.

The IDF struck over 80 targets in Gaza overnight. These included two mosques that served senior Hamas terrorists for observation and other terror-related purposes.

LEGALIZATION: AN EVENT OF CATASTROPHIC RAMIFICATIONS


By: David W. Murray

It’s a remarkable weekend when one finds the Grey Lady arguing for state’s rights, and worrying huffily about arbitrary Presidential powers. But when it comes to smoking dope, the mind of the New York Times has fully boggled. Against careful science, sound public policy, and even liberal politics that defends the vulnerable, the venerable editors have decided that what America needs now is marijuana, and more of it.

Without a change in federal law, they write, citizens would be “vulnerable to the whims of whoever happens to be in the White House, and chooses to enforce or not to enforce the federal law.” No, they are not talking about the current occupant, who rules like the Red Queen. They are worried that some future president might enforce the law against the trafficking in toxins. Entranced by the specter of Al Capone, the Times embraces the wrong-headed idea that marijuana is less dangerous than alcohol. There are two problems with this belief: it’s terribly dated. And it is contradicted by any serious consideration of the facts.

One rarely hears a plea for greater marijuana access based solely on an evaluation of its likely impact on public health or crime rates. Instead, there is almost always a pairing with alcohol, a sophistry that makes marijuana appear more safe. The argument’s pairing is revealing. Alcohol, legal for adults, is very widespread, and deeply entrenched in Western history. Marijuana, as a significant substance of use is recent by comparison, and has only a fraction of the prevalence, a fact surely attributable to the disincentives for use contained in its prohibition. The harms of marijuana are controlled by its prohibition and can only be expected to grow rapidly by making marijuana use on a par with alcohol use.

This discussion reveals two things. First, there is a missing argument in the comparison trope, which is that it’s not really about the respective safety of the substances, but about their disparate legal treatment. Drinkers get to enjoy their intoxicant, while marijuana smokers have to fear arrest. This injustice should be rectified by letting marijuana users have their drug under the same terms as alcohol. As we see, if one can’t make a compelling case for marijuana on its merits, at least one can denounce alcohol, cry hypocrisy, and expect parity.

To be fair, there is some measure of academic support for the position concerning alcohol. Professor David Nutt, the former chief drugs advisor to the United Kingdom, published his rank-order of harmful substances in the journal Lancet, in 2010. He claims that in terms of costs to society, alcohol does the “biggest harm.”

Nutt calculated two scores, the “harm to users”, and the “harm to others” based on 16 criteria he developed, and alcohol was the “overall” worst. But what are we to make of the non-obvious realization that, according to Dr. Nutt, alcohol is more damaging than either heroin or cocaine?

Clearly the rankings are being affected by the number of users, which contribute to the overall calculus of “disease burden” for any affliction. Seasonal flu is more common than leprosy. Shall we argue that getting the flu is “worse” than getting leprosy? The same phenomenon affects our alcohol comparison. There are roughly six times as many regular drinkers in America (120 million) than regular users of marijuana (about 19 million), and the damage is a function of these dimensions.

The usual rhetorical trump card for marijuana supporters, however, is the issue of overdose deaths. Excessive alcohol consumption kills. And while deaths from a lethal dose of cannabis consumption do exist (usually cardiac issues), they are rare, and direct lethal toxicity for , the psycho-potent ingredient, is widely discounted. (But if dose-lethality were driving public perceptions of harm, it’s hard to understand the posture towards tobacco; a lethal dose of nicotine is possible, but poisoning is found mostly in its use as a pesticide, not common smoking, yet tobacco is widely seen, quite correctly, as a devastating substance.)

That said, though alcohol is a contributing factor to American deaths numbering in the hundreds of thousands, overdose deaths are not as common as might be supposed. They number a bit over 300 per year, considerably lower than deaths for opiates (about 16,000), but outpacing any claims for cannabis.

Lethality aside, it is difficult to see the immediate consequences of cannabis consumption as benign. Marijuana is the second-leading drug-related reason for a visit to a hospital emergency room, trailing only cocaine. In fact, with about 450,000 emergency room mentions a year, marijuana now exceeds heroin. Most commonly, someone consumes too much, has an adverse reaction, physiological or psychological, and goes for help.

A central point is that virtually everything that the New York Times thinks they know about marijuana’s effects is based on old anecdotes (including personal experimentation), cultural perceptions, and in some cases, even legitimate research derived from a time when marijuana was, on average, one-fifth to one-sixth as powerful as it is today. To compound the threat, the mean age for initiating marijuana use today is 18, with a substantial number of 12-15 year-olds starting every year. They are at an even greater developmental risk than the older, young adult initiates of the past.

In fact, and very worrisome, even the longitudinal literature tracing the impact of marijuana in young lives, including that research showing negative psychological impact or permanently reduced cognitive performance, is based on youth cohorts smoking the low-potency marijuana of their time. Given the rapid spread of today’s highly potent varieties and the steeply increasing prevalence rates of youth use, we are facing a new and troubling prospect.

We won’t really know what potential crisis we have already sown in this emerging generation of youth for at least a decade. At which point, if marijuana is as dangerous as many fear, nothing can be done but rue our negligence, and try to mitigate the damage. In terms of today’s debate, however, it cannot be stressed enough. If you don’t have command of the research outcomes from the last 10 years of biomedical literature on marijuana, you’ve no idea how threatening the potential really is.

There is a central citation in the argument concerning the relative dangers of marijuana compared to other addictive substances. It is one almost universally cited by those seeking to downplay marijuana’s harms, and seems almost to be the one essential finding that they all rely on. One finds it in statements from Professor Mark Kleiman (“Roughly one in ten people who try marijuana become dependent”), and even the current Acting Director of Drug Control Policy in testimony before Congress. (“Research finds that approximately 9 percent of marijuana users become dependent.”)

The research is based on a survey, and compares self-reports of alcohol, tobacco, and use of various drugs, in relation to the risk of dependence on those same substances, as measured by diagnostic criteria. Sure enough, we are gazing at twenty year-old cannabis studies, the year of publication being 1994. Once again, let us ask the same reliability question: what do reporters think that the research says, and what does the research actually say?

Let’s take a common formulation of the purported results. In Forbes magazine, we read, ”According to one widely cited study, based on data from the National Comorbidity Survey, dependence is nearly 70 percent more common among drinkers than it is among pot smokers. So even by this measure, marijuana looks less dangerous.”

Granted, the research in question does contain this outcome. In fact, they have a rank order of substances of abuse in terms of the proportion of users who display dependency, with tobacco leading the pack, as it were, followed by alcohol and only then, cannabis.

Specifically, they report that a history of prevalence compared to a history of dependence in their study population the ratios are, for tobacco, of users, one in three shows dependence. For alcohol, it’s one in five showing dependence, while for cannabis, it’s only one in nine dependent.

Were we to interpret this finding as though it were, in reality, a measure of the dependency-producing risk in using a substance as a function of the addicting quality of that substance, we would see them in this rank order with tobacco followed by alcohol, and only then cannabis.

One would think that cannabis is thereby shown to be “safer” than either tobacco or alcohol. That seems to be the interpretation journalists and advocates grasp and propel forward. But is this the proper way to read the research?

Anyone reading closely will find reason for caution in making this interpretation. First, there is a question about what researchers call the “prevalence category” of those self-reporting their use – what is their use rate over time? They were reporting their “lifetime” use history, and their “lifetime” dependence history.

That means this study population catches those who have ever used a substance, even once. Some may use regularly, but many are simply those who tried a substance perhaps once in youth, or perhaps once a year for a couple of years. Such a measure is not the prevalence category that enables us to arrive at the conclusion which we are encouraged to arrive at, which is the question of whether repeated, continuous exposure—say weekly or monthly—to the substance in question itself leads to the habitual deepening of use which characterizes dependency and addiction.

In order to make that inference, one would need to examine current or past month use, or have data on daily use of the substance. Of course, were that the prevalence category, the number of people in the study population who would meet these criteria would plummet sharply and weaken the reliability of any conclusions.

There is further reason for caution. The study did not stop with cannabis, but went on to examine lifetime exposure to a large variety of drugs in comparison to their dependence profile. The next drug on the list is cocaine. And the figures for cocaine are that 19.5 percent of the study population has used cocaine in their lifetime, with 3.5 percent showing dependence. This should trouble us.

We appear to have just proven, under the standard interpretation, that alcohol and tobacco are more addictive than crack. Because in this rank order only 1 in 6 cocaine users show dependence, we must conclude that cocaine is “safer” than tobacco and alcohol, as well. That would be news.

Or, more realistically, it demonstrates that we have fixed on the wrong interpretation of the study’s findings. One cannot conclude from these figures anything reliable about the respective “dangers” of the substances themselves, taken in isolation, as potentially dependency-producing drugs. Nor does the original research make that claim. In fact, the researchers are well aware of the potential limitations of these results, and explicitly discuss the complexities they present.

As they write; “The array of interrelated factors includes relative drug availability, and opportunities for use of different drugs as well as their costs; patterns and frequencies of drug use that differ across drugs; different profiles of vulnerabilities of individuals … as well as both formal and informal social controls and sanctions against drug use or in its favor…. Considered all together … the transition from drug use to drug dependence runs a span from the microscopic (e.g. the dopamine receptor) through the macroscopic (e.g. social norms for or against drug use; international drug control policies).”

When this position is understood, we see that, if anything, it is an argument cutting against the policy of marijuana legalization. Both tobacco and alcohol are legal substances, and have use rates multiple times in excess of (illicit) marijuana. Moreover, they are used in patterns that make exposure to them considerably in excess of exposure to marijuana. Those who smoke tobacco do so multiple times a day, commonly every day; in relative fashion the same holds true for alcohol use.

And this research specifically notes that it is just such patterns of access, frequency, and persistence of use that contribute to the overall dependency-producing potential, in conjunction with the biology of the substance itself in relation to the brain. Simply put, were marijuana (or cocaine) to be legal, and subject to comparable access and use patterns by subjects on a daily basis, the impact on their dangers as found in dependency and addiction rates, while unknown, would likely be staggering.

Asking whether cannabis is “safer” than alcohol is in reality not a useful research question, even under the best of measurement conditions. They are different, and each produces a distinctive risk profile, distributed across differently situated persons. It is not productive to ask whether breast cancer is “worse” than heart disease; they are each of them diseases with distinct dangers, populations, and consequences.

No one is trying to underplay the dangers to be found in alcohol consumption. It’s a substance with known risks and exorbitant costs. But to argue that because alcohol is dangerous, therefore we should admit cannabis, the true risks of which we are just discovering, into the same regulatory regime of access and use, is certainly not justified by the actual research. Moreover, the pervasive reportorial neglect, ignorance, and distortion concerning marijuana are, at best, unprofessional.

To close, the culture-war value of marijuana, it can be argued, has distorted our understanding of the true risks. Though I have decried the datedness of some citations, I can find no more compelling demonstration of the impact of the counter-culture on our understanding of this drug than by resorting to even earlier research. Specifically, I summarize the testimony of two researchers called before Congress forty years ago, when the counter-culture was only starting to shape American institutions. Much has been learned about in the intervening years but even then it was apparent to the medical experts that the comparison to alcohol was misleading, and that treating them both under a comparable regime of legal access does a disservice. Though much has changed in our understanding, that essential message is even more important and telling, today.

“Alcohol… is eliminated in a few hours, there is little or no evidence for carcinogenicity or teratogenicity [producing abnormalities] … psychotic phenomena only occur after heavy and prolonged dosage … it escalates only to itself; the price paid for overuse is paid in later life. Cannabis is taken specifically for its psychic action; it is cumulative and persistent; its tar is carcinogenic … experimentally it is teratogenic; psychotic phenomena may occur with a single dose; it can predispose to the use of other drugs; the price for its overuse is paid in adolescence or in early life.”

“Brain activities in relationship to these compounds are drastically different. Alcohol does not … directly and profoundly affect brain function as the cannabis preparations do…. You can use alcohol for a long period of time without producing any sort of persistent damage. But with marihuana … it seems as though you have to use it only for a relatively short time … before (it) produces distinctive and irreversible changes in the brain.”

As disturbing as this testimony is, forty years ago the average potency of marijuana in the U.S. market was less than 3 percent, compared to the 13 percent of today’s drug. Recent research suggests that even casual use, among young adults, produces brain anomalies in structures required for reward and emotional processing. It cannot be stressed enough: virtually every month major research findings are confirming the impact of as a neurotoxin with no safe dose; the cumulative literature is becoming inescapable. Marijuana use changes the brains of users, and the more and earlier they smoke, the more comprehensive and lasting the potential damage. A causal argument is not yet made, but neither is it required for prudent public policy action. There is now sufficient evidence to establish that we are putting our children – all our children, including the minority and the vulnerable — at risk by increasing access to a poison.

Currently, of young adolescents who use marijuana, some 6 percent are daily users. The cumulative, persistent effect of such exposure on adolescent human subjects, the brains of which are in critical phases of development, is simply unknown. The research indicates the likelihood of even greater dangers in marijuana use today, as we move to expose more Americans to its use. There has seldom been a more foreseeable health catastrophe.
