Watch this . . . and think of your children.
The air around us swirls with unseen things . . . oscillations produce various hues of ultra-violet light and sound; radio waves, television, messages on computers fill our daily routines, but spirits and the demonic are somehow taboo to speak of?
At least in reference to what impacts our youths’ minds, they remain taboo. Those who seek to ban evil, must not speak of “entities” … of spirits and demons.
Is it fear of the unknown that causes us to reject … to ignore? Or fear of scoffers?
Ephesians 6:12 states: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
(Whether working through the chemicals in drugs ingested, chemical imbalances in the mind, or “entities” … are there doors we fear to open?)
We now know that in both the Greek and the Hebrew … the words “pharmakakia” (from which we get the English word ‘Pharmacy’) and “Kesep” refer to Drugs and Witchcraft or Sorcery.
In that they’re OK with bringing judgment upon all of us, our evil leaders, having made their deal with the devil, intentionally provoke God.
We can leave their judgment to God, . . . but the PP “employees”? They violate everything good and pure furthering their vile agendas . . . some simply, in the name of another of their gods – modernity, previously, also known as Moloch.
A god worshiped by the Phoenicians and Canaanites, Moloch … in the Old Testament, Gehenna was a valley by Jerusalem, where apostate Israelites and followers of various Baalim and Canaanite gods, including Moloch, sacrificed their children by fire (2 Chr. 28:3, 33:6; Jer. 7:31, 19:2–6).
Finally exposed, these Planned Parenthood “chop-shops” violently murder, subsequently harvest & peddle “salvaged” baby-body-parts worth money, like plastic baubles and trinkets at a swap meet.
We know from experience that Obama is and was a liar; that was so from the very beginning.
Most people admit that speaks volumes about his trustworthiness, not everyone… but some just cannot be objective.
His choosing this group to celebrate in his parade … even the most loyal should have been skeptical regarding what he was like, a perverted hedonist, willing to lie to achieve his anti-American agenda.
In case you missed it, here is the group that marched in his 1st inauguration parade.
Sure, it is obvious now, but most realists knew he was gay, passing for straight, from the beginning.
The “rumors: of his being on the “down low” is a phrase that only those from “gay and streetwise” communities were aware of … and of course the liberal media was never going to expose him.
From the world-famous Mardi Gras to other more “specialized” celebrations, one of those began quite inauspiciously on Labor Day weekend 1972 and has evolved into this group called Southern Decadence, which is today the #1 gay and lesbian event in New Orleans.
Didn’t mean to offend you . . . or maybe I did … these queers and our president offend me.
You were given the choice between war and dishonor. By the evil men you’ve elected, you’ve chosen dishonor, and now you will have the world’s most vicious and final war.
It will be the end of what once was a nation established on Godly principles and it will not only be your children which will suffer; it will be the entire world!
Imagine . . . if you will …
Imagine a Commander-In-Chief who immediately sent emissaries to Ferguson … to Baltimore . . . don’t forget his comment re: Trayvon … how he would look like his son . . . and his all-too-impulsive comment on the Cambridge, Mass., Police, right before his “Beer Summit” …
Imagine his releasing convicts, setting policies to not even arrest nor deport other non-white criminal types (a typical Communist tactic in… nations they’re in the process of “overthrowing” . . .)
Does it make you wonder how many undercover, provocateur FBI agents will be within those groups . . . in a 1970’s style reminiscent of Kent State . . . think it could turn out to be another massacre?
And, oh yea; is he still refusing to personally call the Steinle family?
UPDATE: His and Kerry’s one and only argument / “threat” is that the world has only two choices with Iran, war or this deal.
(Obviously, they’ve opted for war, but after Iran is better armed.)
When this deal goes through, the world will become a more dangerous place. The Iranian terror regime will now create . . . an arms race …
Sanctions, were a better option … sanctions worked! Between 2011 and 2013, when those sanctions began to bite, Iran oil exports dropped more than 60 per cent, besides, there was a dramatic drop in world oil prices.
Some reported that Iran was perhaps six-months to a year away from an economic / financial breaking point. Obama knew, but ignored the potential winning strategy capitulating to virtually every Iranian demand. Obama and his aides used his excuse as a media hammer to punish Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for strongly objecting to the deal (“President Obama dismisses Benjamin Netanyahu speech: nothing new’”, Politico, March 3, 2015).
He said it would be irresponsible to walk (“Full text: Obama: ‘It would be irresponsible to walk away from’ Iran nuclear deal”, Washington Post, July 14, 2015). Instead of walking, he surrendered . . . as he’d planned, all along.
He knew all along he didn’t have 6 months or a year to pressure Iran. The Presidential Primary was too close. At that point, everyone will realize just how much this Hussein Obama is a lame-duck President. By then, he could easily lose his ability to ride roughshod over Congress.
That’s why he’s jumped on the ‘so what’s your alternative’ strategy. He needed it to sell his evil deal, and in the process, he guaranteed WW III.
Obama set the stage … just like he’d planned.

What if God left proof for us – a prediction from thousands of years ago, hidden in the revealed genealogies of scripture, . . . proof not only of His existence, but of His plan of redemptive salvation as well?
It’s there, according to bible scholars and authors Woody Young and Chuck Missler, yet some others are so deep in denial they’ve found a way to explain it away … at least to their own satisfaction … It’ll probably remain a controversy but because of other hidden messages, recently published, I believe it!
Proverbs 25:2 states: “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.” I’m not sure it was Young and Missler who interpreted that verse to mean: “There are things hidden in scripture – go find them” . . . but one of my teachers over the years certainly did.
There are other, “coded messages” left for us hidden in there but let me lay this first one out for you. This one’s hidden in the meaning of the names of the 1st 10 generations of the biblical patriarchs.
Their Hebrew Names Meaning in English
Mahalel The Blessed God
Jared Shall Come Down
Methuselah His death shall bring
Lamech The Despairing
In other words, hidden in the genealogies of Genesis 5, if you put them all together, what it’s saying is: “Man (is) appointed (to die) mortal sorrow (but) the blessed God shall come down teaching (that) His death shall bring the despairing rest.”
Pretty amazing! There are other hidden coded messages left for us . . . I’ll post another soon … it’s done entirely differently; I look at them as the “watermark” on scripture, proving without doubt that God exists; stay tuned.
Nothing more need be said, except for: 1) maybe those who do not know about who Planned Parenthood’s founder was and 2) does this mean Hillary’s also a racist?
Amidst all of the 193 nations of the world, 15 flags have a crescent, 25 have a cross; there is one with a Star of David . . . but only one. There is just one small nation state, about the size of the state of New Jersey, for all the Jewish people. And for some … even in the historical light of the holocaust . . . that’s one too many.
Consider: Does the Middle East really need another terror-ocracy? Some members of the U.N. international community are aiding and abetting its creation.
Today, Secy of State John Kerry, the turncoat of Vietnam, gave the world’s terrorist state nuclear capabilities. He did so at the behest of Barack, another evil man. At one point our nation stood against evil – no longer; beginning a nuclear arms race in the Middle East, we now embrace it.
Some members of the U.N., if only by turning a blind eye, are seeking … not only to “exterminate” Israelis once again, but to bring on a 3rd and final World War.
Dare we not rise and challenge that? With that question in mind, please read this.

This speech by Israel’s ambassador at the UN General Assembly is a cogent overview of modern Israeli history – to the UN General Assembly, November 24, 2014
I stand before the world as a proud representative of the State of Israel and the Jewish people. I stand tall before you knowing that truth and morality are on my side. And yet, I stand here knowing that today in this Assembly, truth will be turned on its head and morality cast aside.
The fact of the matter is that when members of the international community speak about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a fog descends to cloud all logic and moral clarity. The result isn’t realpolitik, its surreal politik.
This was the beginning of Israeli’s Ambassador to the U.N. on Nov. 24th, this year. Read the rest. http://www.aish.com/jw/me/On-the-Question-of-Palestine.html
Obviously, with his niche viewpoint secured, Obama, the Pied Piper personified, is leading the delusional American people toward and over the proverbial cliff, in a pseudo-glorious suicidal march.
Obama’s intent is clear; it has been from the onset, but ours?
Collectively, are we suicidal or insane? What are we doing other than stumbling forward in the dark, knowing there’s a cliff nearby? Negotiating with the world’s most devout, hate-filled terrorists so we can allow them to possess the ultimate weapon is delusional at best . . .
We’re so distracted, so unaware of history . . . it’s as if a severely homophobic man is in love with, and about to spend the rest of his life with . . . Katlin Jenner !
Yes, there’s a reason why Barack belonged in Rev. Wright’s “God Damn America’s” church; he truly “fit” there!
Why has not some “driven patriot” killed him is the question I’ve asked myself over and over … I suspect someone will, still … or will try to . . . eventually.
But evidently, we’re delusional enough to think we can get through this too; we’ve made it through all the other unimaginable scandals. Do we think we’ll wake to discover it was all a bad dream and both Black Friday and the Superbowl are “on” . . . tomorrow?
Einstein somehow totally missed the absolute best definition of “insanity”?
The eastern mystic, Gurdjeff, described us (mankind) as existing in a state of “hypnotic, walking sleep.” I find few other explanations even partially plausible.
Is Obama a member of “Gurdjeff’s – The Fourth Way?” He’s operating as if he is – as if he knows Americans are hypnotized and he can do as he likes . . .
I take no comfort in that we are in the final transition to death; this is NOT palliative care! Ecc. 12: 1 – 14
The left, (remembering UC Berkeley) once, supposedly the champion of Free Speech, having dumped its pretention of supporting Freedom, is now … its executioner …
(Of the 11 colleges and Universities I attended so far, I’d been accepted @ UCB and moved close-by but … something really rang the phony bell there … loud and clear … even then, back in the late 70’s. I left, and went to Oregon instead. Maybe it was the presence of the “Moonies.” Remember them? )
(My comment above – now to the well-written text – link below)
Washington Post opinion writer Kathleen Parker recently coined the term “Swaddled Generation” when discussing the modern liberal’s absurd obsession with silencing dissenting voices in the name of protecting fragile minds.
It seems that mostly conservative sites and writers are concerned with the increasingly draconian suppression of free speech on college campuses. But then, it is mostly conservative writers and speakers who are treated as though they’re bringing the Ebola virus rather than contrarian ideas to the sensitive ears of what we may as well name the “Swaddled Generation.”
Parker was making reference to the numerous incidents we have seen of conservative voices being shut down because of their opinions on a variety of topics. She mentions the silencing of Christina Hoff Sommers of the American Enterprise Institute for daring to challenge the “feminist code.” She mentions former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice who had to withdraw from delivering the commencement speech at Rutgers University after heavy protests. Also, she recounts Brandeis University shamefully canceling its tribute to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic woman who has lifted her voice to denounce the abuse of women within Islam.
Liberal commentator Kirsten Powers has a new book (The Silencing: How the Left Is Killing Free Speech) dealing with the issue and, ironically, has received some of the same treatment for daring to call out her own.
Parker appropriately mocked the so-called “safe space” created at Georgetown University to protect these “sensitive flowers” from the horrors of hearing conservative views. Further, anyone who dares express any views falling outside of accepted liberal doctrine is to be “condemned as a ‘hater,’” wrote Parker, who concluded, “Now there’s a winning debate argument. If you’re 5.”
Funny. But also true. It actually hits on the essence of the problem she describes: immaturity. Not an immature intellect; notice many of these events usually happen in the best universities. They have mature intellects. What they lack is a mature conscience.
Thomas Merton once wrote:
The immature conscience is one that bases its judgments partly, or even entirely, on the way other people seem to be disposed toward its decisions. The good is what is admired or accepted by the people it lives with. The evil is what irritates or upsets them. Even when the immature conscience is not entirely dominated by people outside itself, it nevertheless acts only as a representative of some other conscience. The immature conscience is not its own master. It is merely the delegate of the conscience of another person, or of a group, or of a party, or of a social class, or of a nation or of a race. Therefore it does not make real moral decisions of its own, it simply parrots the decisions of others. It does not make judgments of its own, it merely “conforms” to the party line. It does not really have motives or intentions of its own. Or if it does, it wrecks them by twisting and rationalizing them to fit the intentions of another.
We would be hard pressed to express it better. It is true that the immature conscience per se has no political affiliation, but as we have seen, today the immature liberal conscience has reached epidemic proportions. And though I am glad a few have begun to wake up, the problem is still prevalent and worrisome for freedom and liberty.
Having identified the problem, as Ms. Parker has done by giving us the term “the Swaddled Generation,” thoughts turn to what we can do about it. To tackle that question, we must ask, “How did we get here?”
This will not be easy for liberals to answer, because it will require their elite to take a good look in the mirror. You see, this “Swaddled Generation” did not come out of nowhere. These “children” have “parents” who have shaped them into what they are today. The liberal elites, the radical professors, and other liberal thinkers are those “parents.” These surrogate “parents” have failed to encourage the exercise necessary for the liberal conscience to develop appropriately.
The culprits are not only in academia. Liberal journalism has been completely exposed, to the point of fabricating stories to attack conservatives. The treatment of Sarah Palin was perhaps the apex of their contempt (one hopes), but multiple volumes could be written of their affirmation of the immature conscience.
Hollywood. Need I say more? The mocking of conservative voices has been perhaps the left’s most powerful tool, but one that encourages the sort of lazy, immature non-analysis typical of the “Swaddled Generation.” This has no doubt contributed to the problem by discouraging the critical thinking necessary when one considers others with respect and value instead of seeing them as a punchline.
The solution, therefore, starts not with the “Swaddled Generation” but with the enabling generation before them. When liberal professors start standing to debate conservative thinkers with respect when they come to speak, instead of cowering behind immature protestors, we may start to see the tide shift.
When journalists take pride in getting their experience covering world events, instead of at a Democrat presidential campaign; when they stop asking “gotcha questions” of any Republican candidate; when they start treating conservative women with respect; when they recognize their own biases and fight against them to challenge their own presuppositions, perhaps we can start to see the change needed.
When they seek and thirst after truth again, when they value reality more than popularity, when they value liberty above power, then they will start to grow proper consciences again — a mature conscience that seeks after truth, whatever the outcome. We must regain the old adage that “it is truth that makes us free.” This is true, whatever our political affiliation.
Truth is what unites us. And everyone knows we are in desperate need of that.

Barack, having had an “alternate ideology” most of his life, he ought to be able to speak from experience . . . but then again, he’s never been a military man nor an armed
terrorist, so while he coined his approach to the struggle against the Islamic State with the words: “Ideologies are not defeated by guns. They’re defeated with better ideas.” , one must again dismiss this statement as another of his “delusional proclamations.”
Israel and its military leaders are taking a different approach … also unlike our golfing president – in Israel, no chances are being taken against a declared enemy.
Last Friday, July 3, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s Sinai branch fired three Grad missiles across the border into the Israeli Eshkol district, while it was in mid-offensive against the Egyptian army in North Sinai. Large parts of southern Israel next door had already been declared closed military areas in consequence of that offensive.
ISIS and its affiliates, while currently preoccupied with snatching up territory from countries neighboring Israel, make no secret of their intention, confirmed by military intelligence, to reach Israel’s northern, eastern and southern borders before long.
Monday, July 6, Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gady Eisenkott unveiled Israel’s answer to the coming challenge. It’s a unique, multi-purpose commando ground force, especially tailored to fight ISIS and provide the “boots on the ground” which the US-led coalition has kept back from the Islamists’ constantly expanding warfront.
It will be trained and armed for extraordinary missions outside routine military tasks.
The revelation was something of a wake-up call for the general Israeli population. The new force’s short term tasks are to guard southern and northern Israel against hostile rocket fire and attempts by Islamist groups riding captured armored carriers to storm the border.
This happened once before on Aug. 6, 2012, when Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis Islamists (who later joined ISIS) broke through the Egyptian-Israeli Kerem Shalom border crossing from Sinai. Their APCs had driven almost up to a military base before they were wiped out by Israeli warplanes.
The new Commando Brigade is designed for quiet, bold, covert and effective action against terrorist groups posing a threat from the Sinai Desert to Egyptian sovereignty and Israel’s southern border. Such action would be coordinated closely between Israeli and Egyptian military and intelligence arms.
Similar operations would also be staged if necessary from Israel’s northern border – against Hizballah or any threat from Syria.
The new outfit brings together the different skills and the high, focused fire power rendered by the four elite units’ assorted weaponry.
In this sense, these units, all highly adept in different aspects of covert and stealth operations deep behind enemy lines, complement one another. This amalgam that may be loosely likened to a unique combination of US Delta, Seals, Rangers, and airborne commandoes all rolled in one.
The elite units merged into the new commando brigade are:
The commander of the new combined brigade is Col. David Zinni who defers to the 98th (Esh) Division.
Gen. Eisenkott has brought the four elite units together from the Paratroops, Golani and Givati brigades, among which they were formerly distributed. His action capped the reassessment of the IDF’s war doctrine which he found essential for dealing with the new volatile and constantly moving enemy.
The four elite units in combination offer a synergetic combination. They will train together in air, sea and tactics for missions to meet unorthodox intelligence demands. They will also be set apart from the conventional military by their special weapons, secret high-tech equipment, and separate guidelines and logistics.
A poll in the UK notes that there are 1.5 million ISIS supporters in the nation. That’s surprising, but is it surprising at all that no such poll has been taken or published by our leftist media in the U.S.?
Of course, that begs the question “wouldn’t” ISIS supporters lie anyway?
Yet there are those who go against the grain and call Palestinian supporters “freedom fighters” … and then there’s also the fact that one can never tell about the Anti-American traitorous, wacky leftists!
Or, is he insane, as many across the nation, are now saying? The italicized below, is from Dr. Savage’s newsletter today.
Obama, finally gave a speech after this long weekend, on ISIS, and he had the nerve to say his strategy for beating ISIS is “to win hearts and minds.”
Dr. Savage, when he heard that said, “I nearly fell out of my chair.”
At best, he’s delusional! In his newsletter, he continued: “ISIS is rampaging through the Middle East, murdering, kidnapping, enslaving little girls. It’s part of their religion. According to Obama, they’re not really Muslims. They say they are. Is it the “CSIS,” the “Christian State of Iraq and Syria”? The “Jewish State”? The “Buddhist State”? But liberals are so insane, they deny reality right in front of their eyes. Even Muslims say Obama is crazy for saying this.”
You can’t defeat an enemy unless you define them properly.
It’s like calling the Ft. Hood massacre “workplace violence.” . . . . Oh wait; he already did that!
Update: today, July 14th, Jeh Johnson, the Director of Homeland Security (though he stated in front of a Congressional committee, that he didn’t even know who Kate Steinke was . . . (if you believe that level of incompetence) he did admit that there are 276 Sanctuary Cities in the U.S.
If you’re outraged re: the existence of Obama’s lawlessness of Sanctuary Cities, consider sending an email to your Representative, your Senator, and the Mayors and council members of these cities notifying them that you’re outraged and taking action:
Better yet, bring the public into it by protesting … urge boycotts of events in these cities; when conservatives stand for what they … er … we say we believe in, and quit spending money there; that’ll get a quick response!
In reality … that’ll never happen tho … god forbid (note the intentional small “g”) we should actually abandon our blessed Seahawks for a “principle” !!! My wife and I were planning on going to a Mariners game when friends come for a visit – that’s off – guess I ought to tell ’em but … they’re on Dir. TV and we record ’em …
Here’s a memo I wrote: My wife and I resent the lawlessness exhibited by ALL sanctuary cities, condoned by politicians under the guise of “safety”! Those who allow this must cease sheltering illegals.
We, as a family will no longer spend any money nor attend an event in the city (including the Mariners & Seahawks games) until you stop the lawlessness of being a Sanctuary City!
Mr. & Mrs. xxx
SANCTUARY CITIES: a city with police who won’t ask questions about your immigration status, plus ICE and the Border Patrol can’t find you.
Constitutional scholar and conservative patriot Mark Levin stated: “ … it’s not just a matter of sanctuary cities — we have a sanctuary country. Obama is not only seeking to legalize millions of millions of illegal immigrants through the front door; he’s doing it through the back door, as our friends at Legal Insurrection pointed out last week, by not deporting people . . .”
You’ll hear different estimates on the number of cities; the most common is around 200, but the actual number may be much higher; no one really knows with the current state of this anarchy.
It’s not just a money issue; obviously, illegals are voting – which is why politicians allow Sanctuary Cities to continue to exist … but it is also a money issue; politicians are making immigration legal services lucrative for their liberal lawyer friends in their acquiescing to ACLU pressures.
LEGAL: Police want to maintain a good relationship with the citizens they’re sworn to protect. If residents – many of whom are illegal immigrants – know that if police encounter them they face deportation, they will be less likely to deal with police on any level. That can mean more unsolved crimes and a destructive climate of distrust.
Possibly More Importantly …
HEALTH: “If an epidemic starts in a population that doesn’t have access to care, it’s only a matter of time before it spreads to everyone,” said Councilmember Julia Patterson, chair of the King County Board of Health. “Diseases like H1N1 flu don’t discriminate based on whether or not you’re a legal citizen, and therefore, restricting access to care for some hurts us all.”
Here, on this professional, lawyer-based, pro-Sanctuary cities, they rake in the big bucks, as they intentionally advertise their legal services to “illegals,” here’s the explanation they put forth, but note particularly – the last line:
Sanctuary city is a name given to a city in the United States that follows certain procedures that shelters illegal immigrants. These procedures can be by law (de jure) or they can be by action (de facto). The term most commonly is used for cities that do not permit municipal funds or resources to be applied in furtherance of enforcement of federal immigration laws. These cities normally do not permit police or municipal employees to inquire about one’s immigration status. The designation of Sanctuary City” has no legal meaning.
Sometimes city councils (such as San Francisco did) pass ordinances banning police from asking questions about citizens’ residency status, some police departments have the equivalent of a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” when it comes to immigration status.
There are gunfights every night in San Francisco, mostly by illegal aliens – Published in “The Michael Savage Newsletter.” In today’s issue: As a long term San Francisco resident, Dr. Savage is particularly appalled by the murder of an innocent woman by an illegal alien who had been ordered deported five times.
The killing took place just two blocks from Savage’s home.
He explains how San Francisco’s misguided “sanctuary city” policy was established and how it led directly to this woman’s death. “I live in a sanctuary city, and let me tell you, it is not a pleasant experience,” Savage told his audience. There are gunfights every night in San Francisco, mostly by illegal aliens.
That doesn’t make it to the liberal newspapers.
Do you think anything is going to change? The illiberal bastards who run the city are in power because of the millions of illegal aliens that they’ve cultivated as voters, because the real taxpayers hate their guts.
They import illegal aliens, and the unions show them how to vote.
Then they claim it’s racist to print English-only ballots, and they have to be in seven different languages. The #1 most popular radio talk show host Pg. D. Michal Savage focuses on “Borders, Language and Culture.”
None of the politicians and district attorneys who made San Francisco a sanctuary city will be held accountable for any of this.

Let’s understand the larger historical picture. The anger and hate in this gay community has all-too-often been far “beyond the pale”; still is!
Until a few years back, the “gay community” was considered to have mental problems.
Could that be so?
I ponder this openly, only because I watched the manifestation of their anger and hate as they attempted to force their self-righteous will down the throats of my small community of Springfield, Or. (Hate is an illness; it “eats” one, from the inside out.)
In doing so, they threatened the lives my friend’s wife and their two small girls. I watched as these radical gays also methodically destroyed my friend’s business. In the process, they nearly destroyed their marriage.
Also, on another occasion, on a moonless night, following threatening phone calls, members of this community crept in and spray-painted red footprints all around their home, up to the bedroom windows and doors in the dark of night . . . cowardly domestic terrorism a few decades back.
No; unfortunately, it’s not quite as simple as Eminem and some others would like you to think!
Watch, consider and ponder . . . just who is it, that’s intolerant?
Knowing that the angry secular leftists are intentionally coming against (targeting) the churches right to survive under the Constitution, it’s timely that we change.
Christians (out of loving the sinner, though hating the sin) . . . have tried to peacefully coexist. Obviously that won’t work, but that blood’s on their hands. There is a quick gambit we can / should make … now.
I suggest . . . perhaps, it’s time that churches / pastors cease doing weddings; oh, the attacks would still come . . . but in a different venue.
We should openly acknowledge that … as they proclaim, “All love is equal”. Biblically though, at the same instant, we need to make it plainly clear that it’s the physical expression of that love which (like it or not) is still morally wrong! That doesn’t change.
Did the people have to be so blind, so self-centered . . . so gullible?
After all, this evil man’s a charmer; he says all the right things . . . does it matter that he’s a liar and a deceiver?
Of course it matters; I guess what I’m asking is – what is to become of America if they cannot clearly see such obvious character flaws … of the majority of our politicians?
As Obama has lied openly and been caught in those intentional lies …
And as he’s neutered our defenses and gutted our military of talented, courageous leaders; we are vulnerable to attack as never before. He’s burdened us with an unsustainable and ever increasing debt which will surely enslave our future generations… exactly what our founding fathers warned us about.
Personally, I’m blown away that we’ve not been hit militarily yet. The only plausible explanation is that the enemies fear a strong leader coming forth and uniting us and they’re waiting to see another … a subsequent traitor, elected. Then, after the next election I’m confident the crippling attack will come!
WAKE UP! What would an EMP detonated 20 miles up do to us?
Though sinners, those of us who understand the battle – that evil is wresting control from the righteous who uphold the wisdom of our Founding Fathers, the question arises – – – where do we go from here? Revolution?
If we believe our government is violating our Constitution, for our children’s future, isn’t it time for civil disobedience?
If it is time, are there not things worth dying for? Our Founding Father’s certainly thought so. In light of the power of the government, that could be suicidal.
Our nation was set up as it was to provide us with the freedom to worship God; that’s the reason for our Constitution. We have now become a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord, nor receive correction. An abomination sits, transforming and polluting the people’s house.
From below: If the government thought sick patient care was expensive, it should see the tab for “gender-reassignment” surgery …
From the FRC, (now labeled a “hate group” by this administration), comes an interesting set of questions. What kind of government says its health care can’t afford to keep people alive — but will pay to change their gender?
Yours! Welcome to the Obama administration, located at the intersection of illogical and outrageous. In two seemingly unrelated stories yesterday, the House helped to highlight just how radically out of touch the President’s policy is with everyday Americans.
For years, the Obama administration has argued that it’s cheaper to “let sick people die” than treat them. And to prove it, they wrote a little something into the President’s signature law authorizing 15 unaccountable bureaucrats to make decisions from Washington about whether you deserve care — and from whom. They called it the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), or “death panel,” as most people know it.
Of course, the administration never hid IPAB’s real agenda. In fact, the head of Medicare at the time, Donald Berwick, was quite blunt about its role in rationing care.
Not surprisingly, the idea of a dozen strangers making health care choices for the rest of the country wasn’t exactly a crowd-pleaser, even for Democrats. While the White House tried to tamp down the criticism, most Americans were on to IPAB’s dirty little secret: that it will cost American lives to save Medicare dollars. Tired of the President trying to inject more government into the doctor-patient relationship, members of the House overwhelmingly voted to kill IPAB. With an almost 100-vote cushion, the repeal sailed through the House with 11 Democrats on board.
Meanwhile, as the House was sending the President a message on his idea of health care, the White House was busy sending its own. In a stunning turn of events, the government’s Office of Personnel Management announced that it had ordered federal employee health insurers to start covering transgender surgery, pills, and other therapy by next January.
It’s the latest in a long line of unconstitutional, jaw-dropping ObamaCare mandates: taxpayer-funded sex changes.
If the government thought sick patient care was expensive, it should see the tab for “gender-reassignment” surgery …
Stormy weather is in the forecast now with racist Roof in jail, it seems (if one listens to the other side of the same coin — the Black Racists) …
If these black racists have their way, Roof may have been at least partially successful (“starting a race war”) … that is, if one really pays attention.
It was near that remarkable black Christian church in Charleston, where new Black Panther radical Malik Zulu Shabazz (the same man who spoke previously of killing white babies?) again talks openly of killing whites – – – (he’s at it again … and again, w/ zero consequences) and it was there that Mrs. Obama’s close friend Farrakhan spoke – watch the video.
Why are they there in Charleston? Looking to provoke another Baltimore?
Note this video was at a party where gays gathered together openly at the WH, during which Obama gets flack from . . . a disrespectful radical.
Note also, that you don’t see this gathering on even one of the leftist mainstream media . . . . not one, not ever!
1 in 3 American women, by the age of 45, have had an abortion. No wonder there’s so much venom spewed at those who try to stop the carnage. The signs we show expose the horrible violence upon the innocent . . . the defenseless, upon those who cannot speak for themselves!
Another startling fact is that 50% of those seeking abortions have already had at least one abortion previously. Looks like abortion is being used as “birth control” and your tax dollars are paying for it – $785 to $7,000 for an abortion done in the 2nd trimester and far more if it’s in the 3rd term!
New evidence proves the pre-born baby feels pain.
“Functioning neurological structures necessary for pain sensation are in place as early 8 weeks, but certainly by 13 ½ weeks of gestation. Sensory nerves, including nociceptors, reach the skin of the fetus before the 9th week of gestation.” http://www.lifenews.com/2015/01/16/baby-screamed-during-live-birth-abortion-we-cant-forget-this-babys-cries/
America, where do we go from here?
For those who’ve had abortions, common manifestations are: guilt, anxiety, depression, self-destructive behavior, drug and alcohol abuse, nightmares, despair, suicidal thoughts, low self-esteem, sleep anxieties, anniversary reactions, broken relationships, sexual problems, etc.
It’s not too late to repent, and ask forgiveness . . . or, you can remain in denial and bury the guilt . . . hardening the heart, numbing the soul.
It’s also time for the rest of us to repent and ask forgiveness for having allowed and condoned abortions by our silence.
We pray that these images we display will bring us all to an understanding of what we’ve done.

As promised, Monday, June 1, President Obama radically transformed America. It wasn’t done by congress, passing a law …
Rather, it was OSHA, a government entity, which Obama used . . . to change everything.
Few guessed this was what he meant when he said “transformational change”!
“Propriety,” proper behavior, is no longer is acceptable.
Under the guise of anti-discrimination, OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration published a guide telling employers which restrooms their workers may use. Basically, it’s whichever one they want to!
Sexual predators will be able to claim they “identify” as a person of the opposite sex. See the newly linked article.
Transformation? Or just plain ol’ perversion from someone on the “down-low?”
Home Schooling, anyone?
Six world power nations continuing to work their way toward a June 30th “death deal” with Iran, will surely bring about earth’s final world war and Baraq is intentionally hiding the truth….
Though it gives the terrorists a full decade before they “legally” become a nuclear power … Who knows if they’ll even pretend to abide by that?
Like it or not, allowing Iran (the world’s sponsor of terrorism) to obtain nuclear weapons is Obama’s end goal — not inconsistent with a leftist’s anti-American agenda.
Israel watches … waiting, knowing they must strike Iran first, in order for its 8 million people to survive.
We should not need to ask if Obama is delusional or if this is this just part of his evil plan . . . . it’s too obvious to anyone with a modicum of common sense.
Regarding Iran’s nuclear quest, State Department spokesperson, Maria Harf, just said “Washington – expects – Iran to reduce its stockpile of low enriched uranium by June 30 deadline. If they don’t, that’ll be a problem,” Harf told reporters yesterday. “We expect that they will,” she stressed.
Now she, is delusional … at best!
Meanwhile, Obama counts on the low-information populace not paying attention as he continues to destroy our military and our economy.
America has never had such a traitor at the helm!
Reblogged from an article / interview of Caroline B. Glick // Published May 29, 2015
To be fair, this article was titled “Barack Obama’s anti-Semitism test” in “The ATLANTIC” article by Jeffery Goldberg; I titled it differently here … My comments are in red italicized text.
Is US President Barack Obama an anti-Semite? This question has lingered in the air since his first presidential bid in 2008. It first arose due to the anti-Semitic sermons that Jeremiah Wright, his pastor for more than 20 years, made as Obama and his family sat in the pews.
Throughout the six-and-a-half years of his presidency, Obama has laughed off the concerns. But he has not dispelled them. And this failure has hurt him. So last week, Obama went to significant lengths to answer the question about his feelings toward Israel and the Jewish people once and for all.
The timing of his charm offensive wasn’t coincidental.
Obama clearly believes he has to dispel doubts about his intentions toward Jews and Israel in order to implement the central policy of his second term in office. That policy of course is his nuclear deal with Iran.
Obama’s agreement with the mullahs is supposed to be concluded by the end of next month.
Obama argues that his deal will prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power. But as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu explained in his address before the joint houses of Congress in March, from what has already been revealed about the nuclear deal Obama seeks to conclude, far from preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear arms, the deal will provide several pathways for Iran to at a minimum become a threshold nuclear state, capable of developing nuclear weapons at the drop of a hat. If Iran cheats on the deal, it can develop nuclear weapons while the agreement is still in force. If it abides by the agreement, it can develop nuclear weapons as soon as the agreement expires.
Beyond his desire to conclude a nuclear deal that will empower a regime that has pledged to destroy Israel, there are Obama’s reported plans for changing the way the US relates to Israel at the UN Security Council.
For the past half-century, the US has used its veto power at the Security Council to prevent substantive anti-Israel draft resolutions from passing. But Obama and his top advisers have hinted and media reports have provided details about his intention to end this 50-year policy.
Obama reportedly intends to enable the passage of a French draft resolution that would require Israel to withdraw to the indefensible 1949 armistice lines.
As these two policies, which bear directly on Israel’s ability to defend itself and indeed, to survive, near implementation, Obama is faced with the fact that he has a credibility problem when it comes to issues related to the survival and existence of the Jewish state.
In a bid to address this credibility problem, last week he invested significant time and effort in building up his credibility on Jewish issues. To this end, he gave an extensive interview to Jeffrey Goldberg at The Atlantic, and he gave a speech before Adas Israel, a large, liberal Conservative synagogue in Washington, DC.
To a degree, Obama was successful. He did put to bed the question of whether or not he is anti-Semitic. Well . . . he and Jeffery thinks he did.
In his interview with Goldberg, Obama gave a reasonable if incomplete definition of what anti-Semitism is. Obama said that an anti-Semite is someone who refuses to recognize the 3,000-year connection between the Jews and the Land of Israel. An anti-Semite is also someone who refuses to recognize the long history of persecution that the Jewish people suffered in the Diaspora.
According to Obama, an anti-Semite is someone who refuses to understand that this history of persecution together with the Jews’ millennial connection to the Land of Israel is what justifies the existence of Israel in the Land of Israel.
Moreover, according to Obama, anti-Semites refuse to understand that Israel remains in mortal danger due to the continued existence of anti-Semitic forces that seek its destruction.
And that isn’t all. As he sees it, even if you do understand the legitimacy of Israel’s existence and recognize the continued threats to its survival, you could still be an anti-Semite.
As Obama explained to Goldberg, there is still the problem of double standards.
In his words, “If you acknowledge those things, then you should be able to align yourself with Israel where its security is at stake, you should be able to align yourself with Israel when it comes to making sure that it is not held to a double standard in international fora, you should align yourself with Israel when it comes to making sure that it is not isolated.”
To his credit, Obama provided a clear, well-argued and constructive definition of anti-Semitism.
But there’s a bit of a problem. Right after Obama provided us with his definition of anti-Semitism, he (obviously) endorsed and indeed engaged in the very anti-Semitism he had just defined.
As Goldberg, who is sympathetically inclined toward Obama, put it, Obama “holds Israel to a higher standard than he does other countries.”
Both in his interview with Goldberg and in his speech at the synagogue, Obama judged Israel in accordance to what he defined as Jewish values.
According to Obama, Jewish values require Jews to prefer the interests of others over their own interests in order to “repair the world.”
As Obama reads Israeli history, the state’s founders didn’t only seek to build a Jewish state. They set out to build Utopia.
Obama explained, “I care deeply about preserving that Jewish democracy, because when I think about how I came to know Israel, it was based on images of… kibbutzim, and Moshe Dayan, and Golda Meir, and the sense that not only are we creating a safe Jewish homeland, but also we are remaking the world. We’re repairing it. We are going to do it the right way. We are going to make sure that the lessons we’ve learned from our hardships and our persecutions are applied to how we govern and how we treat others. And it goes back to the values questions that we talked about earlier — those are the values that helped to nurture me and my political beliefs.”
In his address at the synagogue, Obama made his expectations of Israel explicit. As he sees it, Israel’s concerns for Palestinians should outweigh its concerns for itself. “The rights of the Jewish people… compel me to think about a Palestinian child in Ramallah that feels trapped without opportunity. That’s what Jewish values teach me.”
In other words, when Obama thinks about Israel, he cannot avoid blaming Israel for the feelings he assumes Palestinian children feel.
It is important to mention that in neither of his attempts to address concerns about his perceived biases regarding Jews did Obama note the behavior of the Palestinian Authority. He ignored its endemic corruption and authoritarianism.
He ignored the wild anti-Semitic incitement and indoctrination practiced at all levels of the Palestinian governing authority. He ignored the longstanding Palestinian refusal to accept an independent state that would peacefully coexist with the Jewish state.
So in the end, Obama’s charm offensive did provide a clear answer to the question of whether he is anti-Semitic. And the answer is … obviously, he is!
It bears noting that the fact that Obama failed his own test of anti-Semitism doesn’t necessarily mean that he hates Jews. It is certainly possible that he likes Jews.
But loving Jews and being an anti-Semite are not mutually exclusive.
Consider anti-black bigots. Over the years, plenty of racists have professed, and perhaps even felt, love for black people.
They discriminated against blacks not because they hated them but because they believed that blacks were inferior to whites. It was due to their “love” for blacks that they insisted on holding them to lower standards than whites, or on segregating them from whites, lest they be embarrassed or set up for failure.
In other words, the fact of their “love” didn’t make them less bigoted.
Likewise, the possibility that Obama loves Jews doesn’t make his compulsion to judge Israel by a separate standard from other states and nations, including the Palestinians, any less bigoted.
On the other hand, both in his interview with Goldberg and in his speech at Adas Israel, Obama gave reason for concern that he harbors little goodwill for Jews or sensitivity to the unique dangers they face.
Goldberg raised the concern that the anti-Semitism at the heart of the world view of Iran’s dictator Ali Khamenei makes him irrational. Obama didn’t merely reject the notion, while denying the long history of eliminationist anti-Semitism, Obama rejected the notion that anti-Semitism can outweigh rational interests like regime survival and economic prosperity.
In his words, “Well the fact that you are anti-Semitic, or racist, doesn’t preclude you from being interested in survival. It doesn’t preclude you from being rational about the need to keep your economy afloat; it doesn’t preclude you from making strategic decisions about how you stay in power; and so the fact that the supreme leader is anti-Semitic doesn’t mean that this overrides all of his other considerations.”
If that wasn’t enough to show that Obama rejects the notion that anti-Semitism can and often does serve as the deranged anchor of policy- making by anti-Semites, he proceeded to equate Iran’s annihilationist anti-Semitism with the country club anti-Semitism American Jews once were subjected to by their fellow Americans.
“If you look at the history of anti-Semitism… there were deep strains of anti-Semitism in this country,” he said.
By rejecting the policy significance of anti-Semitism for the Iranian regime, Obama exhibited yet another anti-Semitic behavior. Obama asserted that if you fail to recognize the danger that anti-Semitism constitutes for Israel’s survival, then you are an anti-Semite.
Obama’s statements about the Palestinians also indicate that he feels little love for Jews. As has been his consistent practice since assuming office, in his charm offensive last week, Obama continued to ignore the fact that if the Palestinians were primarily interested in a state, rather than in the destruction of the Jewish state, they could have had one at almost any time since the release of the Peel Commission report in 1937 that first suggested partitioning the land west of the Jordan River between a Jewish and an Arab state. His consistent refusal to deal with this simple fact, and his insistence on blaming Israel for the Palestinians’ expressed misery despite Israel’s repeated offers to partition the land in exchange for peace raise serious questions about his intentions toward the Jewish state.
As Obama rightly understands, in the coming months, as he tries to sell his nuclear deal with Iran and his anti-Israel positions at the UN to the American public, the question of whether or not he is an anti-Semite will become more salient than ever before.
Now that he has answered the question, Israel needs to act in accordance with Jewish values, and choose life even at the expense of good relations with the Obama administration.
Bill and Hillary are at a Yankees home game, sitting in the first row, with the Secret Service people directly behind them.
One of the Secret Service guys leans forward and whispers something to Bill. At first, Clinton stares at the guy, looks at Hillary, looks back at the agent, and shakes his head “no”. The agent then says, “Mr. President, it was a unanimous request of the entire team, from the owner of the team to the bat boy.”
Bill hesitates…but begins to change his mind when the agent tells him the fans would love it! Bill shrugs his shoulders and says, “Ho-Kay! If that is what the people want. C’mere Hilly baby…” With that, Bill gets up, grabs Hillary by her collar and the seat of her pants, lifts her up, and tosses her right over the wall onto the field.
She gets up kicking, swearing, screaming, “Bill you “!$#@&!”. The crowd goes absolutely wild. Fans are jumping up & down, cheering, hooting and hollering, and high-fiving. Bill is bowing, smiling and waving to the crowd.
He leans over to the agent and says, “How about that; I would have never believed how much everyone would enjoy that!” Noticing the agent has gone totally pale, he asks what is wrong. The agent replies,
“Sir, I said they want you to throw out the first “pitch.”
It’s tragic. As our liberty AND freedoms fade, every American needs to see this, especially the apathetic. Pass it on?
Oh, I’m sorry; just one more question . . . Now let me see if I have this right.
Pardon me for asking, but do you really believe in this BS ?
Reblogged … in parts …
Jjihad just took place in Garland, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, in the United States of America. Was it in the mainstream, the lamestream media? If it was, was it not mostly dismissed?
A hired, armed guard took a bullet for your Freedom of Speech . . . and we get a short glimpse, here in the USA. Constitution anyone? Liberty?
Not today, not here . . .
We are living in infamous times. Reality outpaces fiction, and the worst case scenarios keep unfolding in our daily headlines. We cannot yell “fire” in a crowded theater. Some believe that Geller et al are doing just that, causing trouble when trouble can be avoided if one only follows Islamist guidelines. Others already urge we follow Sharia . . .
Some fight back . . . in different ways, some using only our pens.
Few, stand strong, launch demonstrations and lawsuits. Some push the envelope, looking for certain trouble, welcoming it, in order to provide an object lesson to those who will not see the Jihad upon us, the Jihad that only Israel once faced, the Jihad that is destroying the Middle East and the Muslim world.
Our president and elected representatives ensure Jihad’s to come here by leaving our borders vulnerable.
Either the West fights back or we surrender to these Orwellian rules. Too many Western intellectuals prefer scapegoating Israel and surrendering quietly to these diabolical Islamist rules rather than risk their reputations and their lives.
Many moderates, elitists, scholars, and fence-huggers favor “nuance;” “sensitivity;” “anti-racism,” “inter-faith dialogue.” But they should favor freedom more … and double standards less.
Enter Pamela Geller, the blogger-activist and founder of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), Robert Spencer, the best-selling author and founder of JihadWatch, and Dutch Parliamentarian and filmmaker Geert Wilders—all long-time freedom fighters against radical, terrorist Islamism. These three have just joined the august ranks of the publisher of the original Mohammed cartoons and the International and Danish Free Press Societies, not only in terms of their having all been awarded pariah status as “Islamophobes” and “racists,” but now in terms of having “provoked” criminal gunfire.
Westerners have absolutely no trouble criticizing Christianity and Judaism. Why so much angst about criticizing one religion only: Islam? If what Geller, Spencer, and Wilders have just done advances the cause of freedom of speech, we may not all have to follow their tactics, but we should at least acknowledge that we support their goals.
If not, what exactly are our alternatives?
Read the stimulating article: // by Prof. Phyllis Chesler – a Shillman-Ginsburg Fellow at the Middle East Forum and recipient…
From Michael Savage came appropriate phrases like “I’m surprised Obama didn’t call the Baltimore looters “undocumented shoppers” and grant them amnesty.”
He not only noted that Obama and other Democrats have been demonizing the police since he took office but also that … the Republican presidential candidates are avoiding the issue like the plague! Savage also noted that the president laid blame for the Baltimore riots on everyone but himself . . . nothing unusual for a man fanning the flames of racism.
Savage pointed out that all these men – Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz – who want to be president of the United States, have nothing to say about a city burning down?
Who wants to bet against the fact that the mayor was just following instructions when she allowed the riots by doing nothing? I’m giving odds. I suggest we watch for when / how soon the Mayor is appointed to a federal position …
It began farther back than most surmise; it was not during Nam … but that’s when the left engineered an unexpected turn of events; it turned on its’ liberal Jews and set course to overthrow the U.S.
In 1970, though few saw “the big picture” (myself included) the future subversive plan was laid out for us on Campuses across America in what was called “The Left-Right Conference”. I attended the one at USC, where both Carl Oglesby and Karl Hess spoke. It’s evolved but is worth Googling.
According to FBI statistics, 60% of hate crimes target Jews though their population is but 2% in America. One might think that these virulent anti-Semitic incidents are mostly by ignorant, skinhead types but that’s not the norm.
Rather, this is happening – spewed flagrantly by our intellectual elite on the college campuses of this country. University administrators and leftist professors allow Islamist brown shirts who support Hamas and Hezbollah to wage unending hate campaigns against Israel and the Jewish students who support it.
Why? It’s not always been this way. It’s because that’s where the money is. Educating future generations is a robust business and as America’s middle class’ financial problems grow, universities see they must pander to their future foreign customers, just to survive.
I ask another seemingly easily answered question – one with the same answer. “Why?” Why has America, specifically America’s universities begun selling-out our ally Israel and so many of our citizens? Even more poignant is: now that America is considered “The Great Satan,” why are we continuing to educate . . . our enemies?
Should not student Visas be revoked and Islamists sent packing? Something rudimentary has changed! Jew Hatred is now the dirty little secret of American higher education.
Islamists are being educated in American Universities en mass!
And university administrators ignoring their own codes of conduct, turn a blind eye to daily anti-Semitic activities, ranging from intimidation and harassment to outbreaks of overt physical violence — against Jewish and pro-Israel students. They would not tolerate this if it were committed against students from any other ethnic group.
In addition, The Department of Homeland Security has lost track of more than 6,000 foreign nationals who entered the United States on student visas, overstayed their welcome, and essentially vanished — exploiting a security gap that was supposed to be fixed after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks. “My greatest concern is that they could be doing anything,” said Peter Edge, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement official who oversees investigations into visa violators. “Some of them could be here to do us harm.”
I’m convinced that all this could not happen w/o it being approved at the highest of government! Treason is afoot in America.
Do not, just watch!
Like it or not, names carry meanings – oft times they’re even prophetic – some, even most “carry” qualities we can aspire to. But when becoming a leader a name can speak volumes – for instance – Benjamin Netanyahu.
“Netanyahu” – origin and meaning
“Natanyahu” (נתניהו) is also a compound word. Natan (נתן) means “he gave”. Yahu (יהו) is a shortened version of YHWH (instead of יהוה , only יהו ), the covenant name of the God of Israel. So the translation of the current prime minister’s last name means something like “YHWH gave”.
In the Bible “Nethaniah” is the name of several characters. One of them is the father of a man named Ishmael, who killed Gedaliah, the vassal governor of Judah (2 Kings 25:23-25 and Jeremiah 40:14-41:18). In Jeremiah 40:8 and 41:9, this name is spelled with the final waw: נתניהו (Nethaniahu or Nethanyahu), which is really the same name.
“Benjamin” – origin and meaning
Grammatically speaking, Benjamin (בנימין) is also a compound word. It means that it consists of several words. Ben means “son” (בן) and yamin (ימין) means “right”. So the basic meaning of the name Benjamin is a son of the right (someone who sits on the right hand).
In the bible, Benjamin was the youngest son of Jacob, and the only one that was born in the land of Israel: “Rachel was at the point of death, and right before dying, she said, “I’ll name him Benoni.”[e] But Jacob called him Benjamin.” (Gen 35:18). The offspring of Benjamin are the tribe of Benjamin, one of the twelve tribes.
Or Barach Obama:
“Barach”, we’ve been told numerous times, simply means “Blessed”. Yet what does it mean in Aramaic – the ancient form of Hebrew?
“Obama”, I previously suspected, meant “prevaricator” but … I now believe it’s only an exposed character trait. In light of this explanation . . . it is much more astoundingly revelatory!
It seems painfully obvious, we are now enmeshed solidly in “End Times.” Armor Up! Pray for your loved ones . . . . .
Obama’s Iran Adviser Worked for Pro-Tehran Regime Lobby?
This information, of course, will not be carried by America’s lamestream media. Investigative report reveals NSC Iran Director who briefed Obama on talks used to work for NIAC.
This information was published today however, by an Israeli news media
After yesterday’s blog, it should be no surprise that all is NOT “Above-Board” with our … “so-called negotiations.” More and more, it looks like a set up (pushed by pro-holocaust President Obama) to allow Iran to GO NUCLEAR as Bib warned the world of!
It’s not that they have now passed the deadline. Rather, it’s that an investigative media report indicates that one of US President Barack Obama’s top Iran advisers worked for a pro-Iranian regime lobbying group in the recent past.
That was discovered by way of the White House released list of the top National Security Council (NSC) officials who held a video conference with Obama late Tuesday to update him on the talks with Iran in Switzerland’s Lausanne.
On the list, which was published by The Daily Beast, the name Sahar Nowrouzzadeh stands out alongside the title “NSC Director for Iran.”
She joined the Department of Defense in 2005 as an “analyst” though she appears to have previously worked for the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC), an organization that is accused of lobbying for the Iranian regime.
The connection to NIAC is particularly troubling given that the group has been accused of being a mouthpiece for Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei.
NIAC paid $200,000 to put out a full-page ad in the New York Times attacking Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ahead of his Congress address warning against the Iran nuclear deal.
Jailed Iranian dissident Amir Fakhravar told American Thinker last month that regarding NIAC, “you cannot find any difference between their statements and the Iranian regime’s statements. Either officially or unofficially, they are following the path of the regime.”
He further revealed that NIAC’s president and founder Trita Parsi has kept up a long relationship with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. Parsi reportedly founded the group in 1999 at a Cyprus conference supported by the Iranian regime, and at the meeting is said to have presented his goal of starting a pro-Iran lobbying group to counter pro-Israel advocacy groups in the US.
Once again, I ask: what ‘s your opinion? Obama – TRAITOR, or not?
Never before has Israel had to deal with such an openly hostile US administration! (slightly edited)
On Wednesday, the Jerusalem Municipality announced it is shelving plans to build 1,500 apartments in the Har Homa neighborhood. Officials gave no explanation for its sudden move. None was needed.
Obviously the construction of apartments for Jews in Jerusalem was blocked in the hopes of appeasing US President Barack Obama. But is there any reason to believe he can be appeased? Today the White House is issuing condemnations of Israel faster than the UN.
To determine how to handle what is happening, we need to understand the nature of what is happening. First we need to understand that the administration’s hostility has little to do with Israel’s actions.
As Max Boot explained Wednesday in The Wall Street Journal, the administration’s animosity toward Israel is a function of Obama’s twin strategic aims, both evident since he entered office: 1. realigning US policy in the Middle East toward Iran and away from its traditional allies Israel and the Sunni Arab states, and 2. ending the US’s strategic alliance with Israel.
Over the past six years we have seen how Obama has consistently, but gradually, taken steps to advance these two goals. Toward Iran, he has demonstrated an unflappable determination to accommodate the terrorism supporting, nuclear proliferating, human rights repressing and empire building mullahs.
Beginning last November, as the deadline for nuclear talks between the US and its partners and Tehran approached, Obama’s attempts to accommodate Tehran escalated steeply.
Obama has thrown caution to the winds in a last-ditch effort to convince Iranian dictator Ali Khamenei to sign a deal with him.
The administration is assisting Iranian Shi’ite proxies in their battle to defeat Islamic State forces in the Iraqi city of Tikrit. It has said nothing about the Shi’ite massacres of Sunnis that come under their control.
Parallel to its endless patience for Tehran, the Obama administration has been treating Israel with bristling and ever-escalating hostility. This hostility has been manifested among other things through:
Obama forced Benjamin Netanyahu to announce his support for Palestinian statehood in September 2009. He used the UN threat to coerce Netanyahu to agree to negotiations based on the 1949 armistice lines, to deny Jews their property rights in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to release scores of terrorist murderers from prison.
Following the nationalist camp’s victory in last week’s election, Obama brought to a head the crisis in relations he instigated. He has done so for two reasons.
First, next week is the deadline for signing a nuclear agreement with Iran. Obama views Netanyahu as the prospective deal’s most articulate and effective opponent.
As Obama sees it, Netanyahu threatens his nuclear diplomacy with Iran because he has a unique ability to communicate his concerns about the deal to US lawmakers and the American people, and mobilize them to join him in opposing Obama’s actions. The letters sent by 47 senators to the Iranian regime explaining the constitutional limitations on presidential power to conclude treaties without Senate approval, like the letter to Obama from 367 House members expressing grave and urgent concerns about the substance of the deal he seeks to conclude, are evidence of Netanyahu’s success.
The second reason Obama has gone to war against Israel is because he views the results of last week’s election as an opportunity to market his anti-Israel and pro-Iranian positions to the American public.
If Netanyahu can convince Americans to oppose Obama on Iran, Obama believes that by accusing Netanyahu of destroying chances for peace and calling him a racist, Obama will be able to win sufficient public support for his anti-Israel policies to intimidate pro-Israel Democratic lawmakers into accepting his pro-Iranian policies.
To this end, Obama has announced that the threat that he will abandon Israel at the UN has now become a certainty. There is no peace process, Obama says, because Netanyahu had the temerity to point out that there is no way for Israel to risk the transformation of Judea and Samaria into a new terror base. As a consequence, he has all but made it official that he is abandoning the peace process and joining the anti-Israel bandwagon at the UN.
Given Obama’s decision to abandon support for a negotiated peace between Israel and the Palestinians, modes of appeasement aimed at showing Israel’s good faith, such as Jewish building freezes, are no longer relevant. Scrapping plans to build apartments in Jewish neighborhoods like Har Homa will make no difference.
Obama has reached a point in his presidency where he is prepared to give full expression to his plan to end the US’s strategic alliance with Israel. He thinks that doing so is both an end to itself and a means of succeeding in his bid to achieve a rapprochement with Iran.
Given this dismal reality, Israel needs to develop ways to minimize the damage Obama can cause.
Israel needs to oppose Obama’s policies while preserving its relations with its US supporters, including its Democratic supporters. Doing so will ensure that it is in a position to renew its alliance with the US immediately after Obama leaves office.
With regards to Iran, such a policy requires Israel to act with the US’s spurned Arab allies to check Iran’s expansionism and nuclear progress. It also requires Israel to galvanize strong opposition to Obama’s goal of replacing Israel with Iran as America’s chief ally in the Middle East and enabling it to develop nuclear weapons.
As for the Palestinians, Israel needs to view Obama’s abandonment of the peace process as an opportunity to improve our diplomatic position by resetting our relations with the Palestinians. Since 1993, Israel has been entrapped by the chimerical promise of a “two-state solution.”
By late 2000, the majority of Israelis had recognized that there is no way to achieve the two-state solution. There is no way to make peace with the PLO. But due to successive governments’ aversion to risking a crisis in relations with Washington, no one dared abandon the failed two-state strategy.
Now, with Obama himself declaring the peace process dead and replacing it with a policy of pure hostility toward Israel, Israel has nothing to gain from upholding a policy that blames it for the absence of peace.
No matter how loudly Netanyahu declares his allegiance to the establishment of a Palestinian state in Israel’s heartland, Obama will keep castigating him and Israel as the destroyer of peace.
The prevailing, 23-year-old view among our leadership posits that if we abandon the two-state model, we will lose American support, particularly liberal American support. But the truth is more complicated.
Inspired by the White House and the Israeli Left, pro-Israel Democrats now have difficulty believing Netanyahu’s statements of support for the establishment of a Palestinians state. But those who truly uphold liberal values of human rights can be convinced of the rightness of Israel’s conviction that peace is currently impossible and as a consequence, the two-state model must be put on the back burner.
We can maintain support among Republicans and Democrats alike if we present an alternative policy that makes sense in the absence of an option for the two-state model.
Such a policy is the Israeli sovereignty model. If the government adopts a policy of applying Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria in whole – as I recommend in my book The Israeli Solution: A One- State Plan for Peace in the Middle East, or in part, in Area C, as Economy Minister Naftali Bennett recommends, our leaders will be able to defend their actions before the American people, including pro-Israel Democrats.
Israel must base its policy of sovereignty on two principles. First, this is a liberal policy that will ensure the civil rights of Palestinians and Israelis alike, and improve the Palestinians’ standard of living.
Second, such a policy is not necessarily a long-term or permanent “solution,” but it is a stable equilibrium for now.
Just as Israel’s decision to apply its laws to united Jerusalem and the Golan Heights in the past didn’t prevent it from conducting negotiations regarding the possible transfer of control over the areas to the Palestinians and Syrians, respectively, so an administrative decision to apply Israeli law to all or parts of Judea and Samaria will not block the path for negotiations with the Palestinians when regional and internal Palestinian conditions render them practicable.
The sovereignty policy is both liberal and strategically viable. If the government adopts it, the move will rebuild Israel’s credibility and preserve Israel’s standing on both sides of the aisle in Washington.
Never before has Israel had to deal with such an openly hostile US administration. Indeed, until 2009, the very notion that a day would come when an American president would prefer an alliance with Khamenei’s Iran to its traditional alliances with Israel and the Sunni Arab states was never even considered. But here we are.
Our current situation is unpleasant. But it isn’t the end of the world. We aren’t helpless. If we act wisely, we can stem Iran’s nuclear and regional advance. If we act boldly, we can preserve our alliance with the US while adopting a policy toward the Palestinians that for the first time in decades will advance our interests and our liberal values on the world stage.
My comment: (The many who live in the darkness of this man’s shadow must begin to pray in earnest that this malevolent man, clearly in the service of evil, is promptly removed from power before he leads the entire world into the final war.)
A new study by Chicago’s Northwestern University found that teens who use marijuana heavily grow up to have poor memories and also have brain abnormalities, suggesting there could be long-term effects of heavy marijuana use.
Researchers evaluated 97 volunteers with and without some sort of a mental illness. The people surveyed said they’d used marijuana daily starting at age 16 or 17, and said they had not used other drugs.
The daily marijuana users had an abnormally shaped hippocampus, the part of the brain used in storing long-term memory, and performed about 18 percent more poorly on long-term memory tasks, the researchers reported. Previous research by the Northwestern team showed heavy pot smokers had poor short-term and working memory and abnormally shaped brain structures including the striatum, globus pallidus and thalamus.
The brain abnormalities and memory problems were observed during the individuals’ early twenties, two years after they stopped smoking marijuana. Young adults who abused cannabis as teens performed about 18 percent worse on long-term memory tests than young adults who never abused cannabis.
“The memory processes that appear to be affected by cannabis are ones that we use every day to solve common problems and to sustain our relationships with friends and family,” said senior author Dr. John Csernansky in a news release.
The study is among the first to say the hippocampus is shaped differently in heavy marijuana smokers and the different looking shape is directly related to poor long-term memory performance. Previous studies of cannabis users have shown either the oddly shaped hippocampus or poor long-term memory but none have linked them.
“Both our recent studies link the chronic use of marijuana during adolescence to these differences in the shape of brain regions that are critical to memory and that appear to last for at least a few years after people stop using it,” added lead study author Matthew Smith, also in a news release.
The longer the individuals were chronically using marijuana, the more abnormal the shape of their hippocampus, the study reports. The findings suggest that these regions related to memory may be more susceptible to the effects of the drug the longer the abuse occurs. The abnormal shape likely reflects damage to the hippocampus and could include the structure’s neurons, axons or their supportive environments, researchers concluded.
Participants took a narrative memory test in which they listened to a series of stories for about one minute, then were asked to recall as much content as possible 20 to 30 minutes later. The test assessed their ability to encode, store, and recall details from the stories.
The study also found that young adults with schizophrenia who abused cannabis as teens performed about 26 percent more poorly on the memory tests than young adults with schizophrenia who never abused cannabis.
In the U.S., marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug, and young adults have the highest — and growing — prevalence of use.
The study, titled “Cannabis-related episodic memory deficits and hippocampal morphological differences in healthy individuals and schizophrenia subjects,” was published in the journal Hippocampus.
2014 Monitoring the Future Survey Finds Teen Alcohol & Drug Use Declining; E-cigarette Use High, Marijuana Harm Perceptions Low
CADCA Responds to New York Times Editorial Board’s Call for Marijuana Legalization
In a development that has largely been missed (I would say “intentionally ignored“) by lamestream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel’s nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.
But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.
The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu’s March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.
Another highly suspicious aspect of the document is that while the Pentagon saw fit to declassify sections on Israel’s sensitive nuclear program, it kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document.
The 386-page report entitled “Critical Technological Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations” gives a detailed description of how Israel advanced its military technology and developed its nuclear infrastructure and research in the 1970s and 1980s.
Israel is “developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs. That is, codes which detail fission and fusion processes on a microscopic and macroscopic level,” reveals the report, stating that in the 1980s Israelis were reaching the ability to create bombs considered a thousand times more powerful than atom bombs.
The revelation marks a first in which the US published in a document a description of how Israel attained hydrogen bombs.
The report also notes research laboratories in Israel “are equivalent to our Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories,” the key labs in developing America’s nuclear arsenal.
Israel’s nuclear infrastructure is “an almost exact parallel of the capability currently existing at our National Laboratories,” it adds.
“As far as nuclear technology is concerned the Israelis are roughly where the U.S. was in the fission weapon field in about 1955 to 1960,” the report reveals, noting a time frame just after America tested its first hydrogen bomb.
Institute for Defense Analysis, a federally funded agency operating under the Pentagon, penned the report back in 1987.
Aside from nuclear capabilities, the report revealed Israel at the time had “a totally integrated effort in systems development throughout the nation,” with electronic combat all in one “integrated system, not separated systems for the Army, Navy and Air Force.” It even acknowledged that in some cases, Israeli military technology “is more advanced than in the U.S.”
Declassifying the report comes at a sensitive timing as noted above, and given that the process to have it published was started three years ago, that timing is seen as having been the choice of the American government.
US journalist Grant Smith petitioned to have the report published based on the Freedom of Information Act. Initially the Pentagon took its time answering, leading Smith to sue, and a District Court judge to order the Pentagon to respond to the request.
Smith, who heads the Institute for Research: Middle East Policy, reportedly said he thinks this is the first time the US government has officially confirmed that Israel is a nuclear power, a status that Israel has long been widely known to have despite being undeclared.
It’s just common sense; Muslims should not be commercial pilots . . . at least, no more than Obama should be Commander-In-Chief …
America’s Ship-of-State, just like the Airbus that crashed, had its doors to the cockpit LOCKED.
It’s as if all rational, Constitutional loving patriots have been locked out of the Oval Office because he was out to destroy the Constitution … because he was out to wrest control from Freedom-loving people.
Like it or not, low-information voters, Obama’s followers (but I repeat myself) never read both sides of an argument . . . like the obedient “sheeple” that they are, they follow this Pied Piper along this path, not cognizant of the cliff just ahead …
History’s greatest social reformers weren’t ‘nice.’ Pro-lifers shouldn’t be either.
If there’s any word I’ve grown to hate during my years of pro-life work, it’s the word “nice.” We must be “nice,” people urge us. If we are not “nice,” our activism and our outreach will fail. If we are not “nice,” then no one will change their minds on abortion or listen to us. If we are not “nice,” we will never achieve a pro-life consensus.
This is, quite bluntly, not true. We must be compassionate, absolutely. We must be charitable, without doubt. We must be truthful—this is essential. If that is what we mean when we use the word “nice,” then I agree completely. But that is not what the critics of pro-life activism actually mean.
They mean we are being controversial. And indeed, how can we not be? The majority of Canadians, for example, are pro-choice. And further, a majority of Canadians do not want to discuss the abortion issue at all, for obvious reasons. Abortion is a very uncomfortable topic. The gruesome reality of abortion—that it results in the physical destruction of a developing human being—is shocking and disturbing. People do not like being shocked and disturbed, and thus they prefer the discussion that conjures up such feelings to go away. The debate be “closed,” abortion advocates like to prematurely announce.
And they also mean we are being confrontational. But again, how can we not be? We live in a nation that has been more or less at peace, with the exception of a dedicated minority, with the fact that we have ended the lives of more than three million tiny humans, shredded in the womb and discarded like so much garbage. Indeed, for the most part, we are even at peace with the fact that the Canadian government garnishes our wages to fund this barbarism. Even the words seem shocking—these are not very “nice” things to say. And yet, they are true and must be spoken. Lives literally depend on it.
But Canadians don’t respond well to such controversial tactics as exposing the reality of abortion through powerful imagery, we are told. This, of course, simply isn’t true —thousands of face-to-face conversations with Canadians about abortion have shown us that while they may not want to have the discussion, many of them change their minds on this issue when that discussion takes place. I have photos of babies that were, once upon a time, scheduled to be aborted by “nice” Canadian doctors as proof of that.
In the context of abortion, the much-vaunted Canadian politeness is invoked as a reason to avoid confrontation. I’d like to think that Canadians are not so polite that they would avoid waking up their neighbor to inform him that his house is burning down. Shouts of warning may disturb his slumber, yes, but sometimes our comfort can prove lethal.
It is important to remember that when we bring up a disturbing topic like abortion, violent reaction is often inevitable. That is not a by-product of using abortion imagery, it is a by-product of the violence abortion culture brings with it. One of my friends was punched in the face for sidewalk-chalking friendly pro-life messages. A woman at Life Chain in Toronto was assaulted by a man furious that someone was exposing the truth about abortion. And as any pro-life activist engaging the public in any way can attest, the subject alone is the source of tension that we know must exist. It is, after all, why we’re doing outreach in the first place.
As the philosopher Arthur Schopenauer once said, “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.” Unfortunately, many people want to skip from being ridiculed to being vindicated, without accepting the inevitable persecution that will occur first.
We seem to have forgotten the history of social reform movements, and the hardships and backlash that activists had to endure in the past. Because Martin Luther King Jr., and William Wilberforce, and Lewis Hine, are all considered heroes now, we forget that in their day, they were often widely despised and hated. King and the Civil Rights activists endured a level of physical violence that pro-lifers can scarcely imagine. Wilberforce’s abolitionists were regularly threatened, and his right-hand man Thomas Clarkson was once nearly thrown off the docks in Liverpool by angry slave traders. Lewis Hine, the photographer who displayed pictures of child laborers, was opposed by the forces of American industry who despised him for his exposure of their brutal practices. And I could list so many more.
None of these men, none of these activists, none of these movements were considered “nice.” Using shocking imagery and disturbing evidence, they forced a cultural discussion that nobody wanted to have. They confronted their societies with truths no one wanted to hear. They suffered much ridicule, hatred, and even violence as the result of that. All of them were warned that their tactics would not succeed because they were controversial, or divisive, or “not nice.” But they recognized that without confronting the culture, they would never change the culture.
When pro-life activists engage in campaigns like our #No2Trudeau Campaign, where we plan to distribute a million pieces of literature highlighting the legal destruction of human life in Canada, make thousands of phone calls to Canadians on this issue, and work to rebuild a pro-life consensus in this country, we realize that the politicians will be uncomfortable. We realize that many people will not want to discuss this most important of issues. And we realize that abortion activists and the media will do everything in their power to discredit what we are doing and to downplay any results.
But pro-lifers have to realize that controversy is inevitable, that confrontation is necessary, and that backlash is inevitable. Millions of Canadians have no idea what abortion is. Abortion culture has flourished in darkness. And when you turn the light on in a room that has been dark for a very long time, often it hurts the eyes.
That may not be nice. But it is the truth.

General Kelly’s comments- under oath today- are long overdue and barely the tip of the iceberg… The General states that Latin American nations lack the ability to track Islamic terrorists. In this I fully disagree: these nations today – the whole of Latin America- lack the will and the desire to track/end terrorists headed to America..
Top U.S. General: ISIS May Use Latin American Traffickers To Enter U.S. // Edwin Mora 12 Mar 2015 Washington, DC / BREITBART
“WASHINGTON, DC — Gen. John Kelly, commander of U.S. Southern Command, warned lawmakers that Sunni extremists are radicalizing converts and other Muslims in Latin America, adding that the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) may exploit trafficking organizations in the region to infiltrate the United States.
Latin American countries lack the ability to track Islamic terrorists, noted the general.
He said that Sunni groups such as ISIS could move without impediment across the region.
Gen. Kelly also expressed concern about the presence of Lebanese terror group Hezbollah and the Iranian influence in Latin America. Hezbollah is backed by Iran.
According to the Southcom commander, Iran has established more than 80 “cultural centers” in the Latin American region in an effort to promote Shiite Islam.
The general’s comments came during a hearing held by the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday. He briefed reporters at the Pentagon a few hours after.
“In addition to thousands of Central Americans fleeing poverty and violence, foreign nationals from countries like Somalia, Bangladesh, Lebanon, and Pakistan are using the region’s human smuggling networks to enter the United States,” said Gen. Kelly in written testimony prepared for the Senate panel hearing. “While many are merely seeking economic opportunity or fleeing war, a small subset could potentially be seeking to do us harm.”
“Last year, ISIS adherents posted discussions on social media calling for the infiltration of the U.S. southern border,” he noted. “Thankfully, we have not yet seen evidence of this occurring, but I am deeply concerned that smuggling networks are a vulnerability that terrorists could seek to exploit.”
Breitbart News reported that nearly 500 immigrants from terrorism-linked countries such as Syria and Iraq were apprehended trying to enter the U.S. illegally in 2014 alone.
According to Gen. Kelly, Sunni jihadists in Latin American are currently radicalizing converts and other Muslims in the region.
“Sunni extremists, while small in number, are actively involved in the radicalization of converts and other Muslims in the region and also provide financial and logistical support to designated terrorist organizations within and outside Latin America,” he told the members of the Senate panel.
Moreover, U.S. allies in Latin America are concerned about the growing number of jihadists from the Western hemisphere who are traveling to Syria where ISIS controls large swaths of land.
“Partner nation officials throughout the region have expressed concern over the increasing number of suspected Islamic extremists from the hemisphere who are traveling to Syria to participate in jihad,” Gen. Kelly told the members of the Senate panel. “Some take part in military and weapons training before departing; last year 19 Trinidadian Muslims were detained in Venezuela for conducting training with high-powered weapons.”
“When these foreign fighters return, they will possess operational experience, ties to global extremists, and possible intent to harm Western interests—and they will reside in a region rife with smuggling routes that lead directly and easily into the United States,” he added.
The Southcom chief told lawmakers that Iran is seeking to counter U.S. influence in the Western Hemisphere.
“Over the last 15 years Iran has periodically sought closer ties with regional governments, albeit with mixed results. Iranian legislators visited Cuba, Ecuador, and Nicaragua to advocate for increased economic and diplomatic cooperation,” said the general. “Iran’s outreach is predicated on circumventing sanctions and countering U.S. influence.”
“Additionally, Iran has established more than 80 ‘cultural centers’ in a region with an extremely small Muslim population. The purported purpose of these centers is to improve Iran’s image, promote Shi’a Islam, and increase Iran’s political influence in the region,” he added. “As the foremost state sponsor of terrorism, Iran’s involvement in the region and these cultural centers is a matter for concern, and its diplomatic, economic, and political engagement is closely monitored.”
Among other issues, Gen. Kelly briefed reporters at the Pentagon about the threat of ISIS entering the U.S. through the southern border.
Latin American countries “don’t have nearly the ability to track people like we do… when you’re in this part of the world you travel pretty freely between countries,” he told reporters. “There are legal ways to do it, but then there are just simply people walking across borders.”
The high level of trafficking and sophistication of the smuggling networks “overwhelms our ability to stop everything,” also said Kelly, adding that once terrorists reach Latin America “it’s pretty easy for them to move around.”
During the Senate panel hearing, the general warned that drug cartels in Latin America could smuggle terrorists and weapons of mass destruction into the U.S.
“While there is not yet any indication that the criminal networks involved in human and drug trafficking are interested in supporting the efforts of terrorist groups, these networks could unwittingly, or even wittingly, facilitate the movement of terrorist operatives or weapons of mass destruction toward our borders, potentially undetected and almost completely unrestricted,” testified the general.
The U.S. maintains a close military relationship with most countries in Latin America that involves the sharing of intelligence and information, he said.”
But, what is it these lawmakers are doing? They do nothing! They’ve already conspired with our leftist president and left our borders open … open for the jihadists to walk right in.
This situation has not been handled in the way a head of state should behave, then again America elected this deceptive, and mentally incompetent . . . we actually did it twice!
President Barack Obama is not a happy camper! A foreign leader came to his capital and not only criticized his policy, he did so from the podium of the U.S. Congress in an address televised throughout the world.
Understandable—to an extent, but what Obama is doing is reprehensible. How the President dealt with it, shows his mental problems.
From the moment Speaker Boehner let it out that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would be addressing the U.S. Congress on the subject of Iran, the White House began to panic. Their attempt at damage control, was obvious at best.
Finally, Obama’s servant-lackeys went into attack mode.
Despite Netanyahu’s Diplomatic praise for Obama, both at AIPAC and then during his address to Congress, the administration’s reaction to the speech itself ranged from critical to passive aggressive, to openly aggressive.
As for the President’s own completely unbelievable response to the speech: “I did not have a chance to watch Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech… I did have a chance to look at the transcript and as far as I can tell there was nothing new.”
Obama closed his attack by stating “The Prime Minister didn’t offer any viable alternatives.” Hogwash!
By reacting so combatively both to the fact that there would be a speech and then to the content of the speech, Obama revealed himself as beaten and frustrated on his own playing field and managed to deepen the rift with a close ally, Israel.
That’s not how a diplomat, let alone a head of state, should have handled the situation.
Obama was exposed for what he is, a traitorous evil man whose intent seems to be nothing short if bringing the world to the brink of nuclear war.
America’s pied piper of the naïve, idealistic did not expect a courageous leader like Bibi to do this, but in the larger scheme of things America’s getting what it deserves; so is the rest of the free world.
As our patriots give their all, the rest of us let down our guard and did not repair the breaches in the wall. God was effectively but unceremoniously marched out of our world accompanied by fife & drum.
(Written from Israeli’s head of the Likud party’s speech)
Thinking that the speech by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu would distract the public, 75 (nominal) Republicans violated their oath of office.
We expect this of the LEFTIST Democrats, but in the end, only 167 Republicans bravely voted against the Senate’s version of the bill. But because the bill was supported by every Democrat; only 30 or so Republicans had to support it to ensure it’s passage, and 75 GOP members voted for it.
Below, is the full list of House traitorous Republicans who voted for the “so-called clean” DHS spending bill; if one of them is your Representative, knock on doors and talk to your neighbors, before it’s too late:
I predicted an attack last year; here’s why it didn’t happen. So, as planned, he’s moved us 1 giant step nearer to Armageddon …
The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Al-Jarida quoted “well-placed” sources as saying that Netanyahu, along with Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon, and then-Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, had decided to carry out airstrikes against Iran’s nuclear program after consultations with top security commanders.
According to the report, “Netanyahu and his commanders agreed after four nights of deliberations to task the Israeli army’s chief of staff, Benny Gantz, to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran’s nuclear program. In addition, Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel’s security.”
The sources added that Gantz and his commanders prepared the requested plan and that Israeli fighter jets trained for several weeks in order to make sure the plans would work successfully. Israeli fighter jets reportedly even carried out experimental flights in Iran’s airspace after they managed to break through radars.
Former US diplomat Zbigniew Brzezinski, who enthusiastically campaigned for Obama in 2008, called on him to shoot down Israeli planes if they attack Iran. “They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?” said the former national security advisor to former President Jimmy Carter in an interview with the Daily Beast.
“We have to be serious about denying them that right,” he said. “If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a ‘Liberty’ in reverse.’”
Israel mistakenly attacked the American Liberty ship during the Six-Day War in 1967.
Brzezinski was a top candidate to become an official advisor to President Obama, but he was downgraded after Republican and pro-Israel Democratic charges during the campaign that Brzezinski’s anti-Israel attitude would damage Obama at the polls.
First, (My Comment) – The Genie is out, and America won’t like what’s coming. With the rational finding of the jury in Texas, what’s obvious are the consequences — you cannot intoxicate yourself and expect to get off scott-free any longer.
The pot is no longer like the “high” of the 60’s & 70’s. We are in a REEFER MADNESS era predicted long ago and the psychotic consequences for many youth, is permanent! What’s been missing is the addition of nicotine, to addicted users to an already highly addictive drug; the e-cigs do that.

At a recent Seahawks football game in Seattle, Shy Sadis, 41, took a drag on a slim vapor pen that looked like a jet black Marlboro. The tip glowed red as he inhaled.
But the pen contained no nicotine. Instead, it held 250 milligrams of cannabis oil loaded with THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.
“Nobody noticed,” said Mr. Sadis, who owns several marijuana dispensaries in Washington State. “You pull it out of your pocket, take a hit like a cigarette, put it back, and you’re done. It’s so discreet.”
Advocates want marijuana for seizures in children like Kaylie Annable. But the science is thin.
Legal Marijuana for Parents, but Not Their KidsAUG. 18, 2014
A Benefit of Legal Marijuana SEPT. 1, 2014
Scientists at the Philip Morris International research center in Neuchatel, Switzerland, are developing alternatives to cigarettes.
The New Smoke: Race to Deliver Nicotine’s Punch, With Less Risk DEC. 24, 2014
The device, called a JuJu Joint, heralds a union that seems all but inevitable: marijuana and the e-cigarette, together at last in an e-joint. For years, people have been stuffing marijuana in various forms into portable vaporizers and into the cartridges of e-cigarettes. But the JuJu Joint is disposable, requires no charging of batteries or loading of cartridges, and comes filled with 150 hits. You take it out of the package and put it to your lips — that’s it. There is no smoke and no smell.
Since their introduction in April, 75,000 JuJu Joints have been sold in Washington State, where marijuana is recreationally and medically legal. The maker says that 500,000 will be sold this year and that there are plans to expand to Colorado, where recreational use is legal, Oregon, where it will be legal in July, and to Nevada, where it is decriminalized.
“I wanted to eliminate every hassle that has to do with smoking marijuana,” said Rick Stevens, 62, the inventor and co-founder of JuJu Joints with Marcus Charles, a Seattle entrepreneur. “I wanted it to be discreet and easy for people to handle. There’s no odor, matches or mess.”
Not everyone is so enthusiastic. Many addiction researchers fear that e-cigarettes will pave the way to reliance on actual cigarettes, especially in teenagers. And THC adversely affects the developing brain, some studies have found, impairing attention and memory in adolescents and exacerbating psychiatric problems.
“In some ways, e-joints are a perfect storm of a problematic delivery system, the e-cigarette, and in addition a problematic substance, cannabis oil,” said Dr. Petros Levounis, the chairman of the psychiatry department at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.
Each JuJu Joint contains 100 milligrams of THC, twice as much as a traditional joint, as well as propylene glycol, a chemical normally used to absorb water in foods and cosmetics, said Suchitra Krishnan-Sarin, an associate professor of psychiatry at Yale University School of Medicine.
“We do not know the effects of inhaling constant doses of this agent,” she said. “We know very little about these products and what they contain.”
Mr. Stevens, a former marketing executive who spent 30 years in the tobacco industry, defended the device’s THC content, pointing out that each inhalation is metered by the device.
“Our goal is not to get people stoned so they sit in the corner and vegetate,” he said.
Local retailers report that JuJu Joints are catching on, especially with women and consumers in their 40s to 60s. “You wouldn’t believe the demographic this has opened up,” said Ed Vallejo, 60, a manager at New Vansterdam, a recreational store in Vancouver, Wash. “This is the older, retired set. The younger set can’t afford it.”
JuJu Joints for recreational use cost $65 to $100 each, 25 percent of which goes to the state’s Liquor Control Board. It costs a suggested donation of $25 at medical dispensaries. Purchasers must be at least 21.
“The underlying reason people buy it is because of its design and because you can smoke it in public,” said Lindsay Middleton, 21, a bud-tender at Green Lady Marijuana, a recreational store in Olympia. Though smoking marijuana in public is illegal, customers report using JuJu Joints while skiing, hiking and going to concerts.
Law enforcement agencies are concerned that discreet vapor pens filled with cannabis oil are already being abused by teenagers, and that many are sure to lay hands on JuJu Joints.
“If you go on Instagram, you will find hundreds of thousands of postings by kids on how they are using variants of e-cigarettes, or e-cigarettes themselves, to smoke pot in the presence of their parents and at school, and getting by,” said Barbara Carreno, a spokeswoman for the Drug Enforcement Administration.
According to the latest Monitoring the Future Survey, an annual study of 40,000 teenagers conducted by the University of Michigan and funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 2014 marked the first year that more teenagers used e-cigarettes than traditional ones.
The study also found that in the past year, 35.1 percent of 12th graders consumed marijuana, making it the most common illicit drug among high school seniors.
But users of medical marijuana may prove to be the largest market for e-joints. The Food and Drug Administration recognizes no legitimate medical use, and there is little high-quality research backing marijuana as a remedy for the scores of conditions for which it is being used.
A few studies, however, suggest ingredients in marijuana may help relieve pain and improve appetite in patients with cancer, AIDS and multiple sclerosis. Some researchers argue that marijuana — especially in the form of nebulized vapor — could be found beneficial to even more patients, if the federal government loosened research restrictions.
“There may be and probably is a legitimate medical use for vaping cannabis, but we need to do the research to figure out if it’s true and to find out the dosing,” said Otis Brawley, the chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society. “But with marijuana being a Schedule 1 drug, it’s so onerous to get the licensure that many people actually skilled to do the research just choose not to.”
Mr. Stevens is developing a JuJu Joint that contains only cannabidiol, or CBD, a nonpsychoactive extract of marijuana that advocates say can prevent seizures. This version contains less than 0.3 percent THC, so it would be legal nationwide.
“This day and age, everybody has a vapor pen,” Mr. Sadis said. “You don’t know if they’re smoking marijuana or nicotine.”

An article on Tuesday about electronic vapor marijuana cigarettes referred imprecisely to the legality of recreational use of marijuana in Oregon. While the state passed a ballot measure in November to allow the personal use and possession of recreational marijuana, it does not go into effect until July 1, 2015.
Here, is another article … from: Idaho’s – KTVB-TV, but there’s a short commercial – http://www.ktvb.com/news/Police-warn-parents-to-watch-for-new-form-of-marijuana-hitting-schools-249611121.html
BOISE Marijuana, it’s now popping up in a different form and in high schools across the country, including Idaho. It s happening with marijuana in e-cigarettes.
To think that Idaho is exempt from it, we’re far from it. We’ve run into cases already in the city of Boise, multiple cases in the city of Boise, said Boise Police Officer Jermaine Galloway.
E-cigarettes are still something fairly new, but gaining a lot of popularity. They’re electronic cigarettes that emit vapor that’s inhaled. Most of the time they contain nicotine, but now there’s a growing number using them for illegal drugs.
So far, there have been a handful of cases in Boise where police have arrested people using these e-cigarettes to smoke marijuana. Galloway worries we’re at the beginning of this problem and it’s about to get worse.
If there were an expert in Idaho when it comes to knowing and understanding this new market of electronic cigarettes and marijuana – it would be Galloway.
It’s very, very different than anything we’ve seen before, said Galloway.
Galloway took some time to talk to KTVB and show us what’s happening here in Idaho, but is happening much more in other states.
When they’re using it for marijuana it is very stealthy, it is very discrete and they can use it in close proximity to you and especially if you’re outside, there’s a good chance you would never realize marijuana was even present, said Galloway.
One man told NBC New York that he smokes pot in his e-cigarette during his commute on the subway and no one has any idea.
Like nicotine, the vapor that is emitted is practically odorless.
I’ve heard people say they’ve used it in movie theaters, I’ve heard people say they’ve used it in restaurants, said Galloway.
While there is no data on how many teens are using e-cigarettes or vaporizers to smoke marijuana, a recent U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention report showed that the percentage of middle and high school students who smoke e-cigarettes with nicotine and other additives in them more than doubled from 2011 to 2012, jumping from 4.7 percent in 2011 to 10 percent in 2012.
We’d love to be able to tell parents look for A, B and C every time, but we can’t, said Galloway. And this is what we’re dealing with now and it’s still evolving. We’re going to have much, much more next year.
But you can watch for the e-cigarettes. They’re illegal for anyone under 18 to even own, regardless of how they’re used. They’re also illegal in schools. Galloway says school officials have and will continue to take them when they see them.
We’re a little bit behind in finding out about this, as we always will be. A trend will show up and then law enforcement starts to figure it out, said Galloway.
As with anything when it comes to our kids, we need to know what to look for. When it comes to e-cigarettes, if the substance in the tank is in an oil, herb or wax, it is likely marijuana. Right now nicotine is only in a liquid form.
Regardless of the form, marijuana is illegal in Idaho.
He says it straight while:
1) using truth to
2) confront disrespectful anti-American, leftist zealots (code pink)
3) appropriately accusing Obama and partisan politicals
which will make the U.S. the largest financer of terrorism … and is sure to bring about WWIII.
This man was Gerrymandered out of his house seat in the House of Representatives by Democrat traitors, but he still tells it like it is! See his recent speech:
