DELUSIONAL OBAMA DENIGRATES THE UNITED STATES ON FOREIGN SOIL -- CONFLATES TERRORISM WITH CLIMATE CHANGE

Who is this man who pretends he is the President of the United States …

“I say all this because another part of being vigilant, another part of defeating terrorists like ISIL, is upholding the rights and freedoms that define our two great republics.  That includes freedom of religion.  That includes equality before the law.  There have been times in our history, in moments of fear, when we have failed to uphold our highest ideals, and it has been to our lasting regret. We must uphold our ideals now.  Each of us, all of us, must show that America is strengthened by people of every faith and every background.”

  1. The United States Constitution is not a suicide pact that conveys significant advantages to enemies who declare war on America and attack her citizens. Islam is more a political ideology based on religion than a religion. It is not, as President Obama continues to say, a religion of peace, nor is it a religion that is compatible with freedom of expression, freedom of religion, or fundamental human rights.
  2. It is believed that the reference to “moments of fear” alludes to the internment of the Japanese-Americans during World War II. To denigrate the United States on foreign soil is a pattern and practice of this president who seems to hate America, perhaps as much as his long-time “spiritual mentor,” Reverend Jeremiah “God Damn American” Wright. As the representative of the American people you simply do not denigrate, disparage, or downplay America on the world stage.
  3. Upholding one’s ideals does not mean accepting and embracing a murderous enemy with open arms nor does the concept apply to an existential war. It is one thing to uphold ideals such as the Geneva Convention, it is a far different thing to craft rules of engagement that puts your own soldiers at risk for the purposes of avoiding bad media coverage.
  4. America is strengthened by people who assimilate and become Americans, not those who self-segregate and attempt to recreate the religion, culture, politics, culture, language, food, dress, and behavior of the crapistan they left – and then try to force Americans into behaving similarly.

Exploding another demographic bomb …

“Related to this, I want to note that under President Hollande, France plans to welcome 30,000 additional Syrian refugees over the next two years.  Here in the United States, refugees coming to America go through up to two years of intense security checks, including biometric screening.  Nobody who sets foot in America goes through more screening than refugees.”

  1. France is already experiencing problems with Muslims who refuse to assimilate, self-segregating in neighborhoods, and attacking people and property, both public and private, over the slighted provocation. Are the French that stupid that they would increase the threat to their country and their population? Perhaps the cheese-eating surrender monkeys are already flying the white flag of defeat? How else can you explain this suicidal behavior.
  2. As for screening, the liar-in-chief, can’t even tell the American public that we adequately screen and control the illegal aliens pouring over our borders – or even that we match incoming and outgoing visas to determine who is staying illegally. Then there are the sanctuary cities who care little for identifying criminal illegal aliens, let alone anyone else.

The delusional communist …

“And next week, I will be joining President Hollande and world leaders in Paris for the global climate conference.  What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children.”

  1. Empty meaningless rhetoric conflating climate change and terrorism. The idea that the world stands as one against anything, including terrorism, is disproven in Syria and elsewhere where politicians are picking winners and losers based on national advantage and political experience. The saying that one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter is just another indication of the bankruptcy and corruption of moral equivalence, multiculturalism, and political correctness.
  2. Ask yourself: if man cannot adequately and accurately measure man’s climate signal against the background noise of climate variability, or mitigate the effects of nature to affect change, what is the chance that the only thing being controlled is your individual freedom, labor, and assets – all for political gain by those who wish to impose a totalitarian, one-world government on the world.

This time it is different …

“So, President Hollande, my fellow Americans -- let’s remember we’ve faced greater threats to our way of life before.  Fascism.  Communism.  A first world war.  A second.  A long Cold War.  Each and every time, we prevailed.  We have prevailed because our way of life is stronger.  Because we stay united.  Because even as we are relentless in the face of evil, we draw on what’s best in ourselves and in the character of our countries.  It will be no different this time.  Make no mistake, we will win, and groups like ISIL will lose.  And standing with allies like France, we will continue to show the world the best of American leadership.”

  1. We prevailed because we were unafraid to label the enemy as evil and a threat to our existence. We prevailed because we waged war on the entire population, we did not limit our rules of engagement. We were in it to win. General George Patton was not a man of nuance or proportionality – he was a leader that wanted to kill our enemies and destroy their infrastructure without worrying about the media. A mainstream media that acted as cheerleaders for our country, unlike today’s mainstream media that acts as the Fifth Column, the propaganda arm of our enemies trying to destroy us from within. Senator Joseph McCarthy may have been a corrupt, crude, lewd, demagogue, Only but history has proven him 100% correct about the communist infiltration into every level of American society, even in the highest levels of government. Now I suspect they have achieved their ultimate aim – the Manchurian Candidate that sits in the Oval Office and cannot seem to name our enemies or prosecute an all out war against terrorists. (“This barbaric terrorist group -- ISIL, or Daesh -- and its murderous ideology pose a serious threat to all of us.”) No – these are radical Muslims acting on the strictest interpretation of Islam as found in the Quran and Hadiths.
  2. Yes it is different. Our current President is not a leader; at least not acting for the American people. Like any other coward, he leads from behind – issuing commands while enjoying the perks and privileges of his office while men die for nothing. Watching this president give up our hard won gains and create a power vacuum that creates ISIS, empowers Iran, and threatens to introduce nuclear weapons into the region, should make any American sick.
  3. This is a man of zero action. (“As part of that, I’m calling on the European Union to finally implement the agreement that’s been long in the works that would require airlines to share passenger information, so we can do more to stop foreign terrorist fighters from entering our countries undetected.”) Shut down access to American airports tomorrow, and information sharing will be up and running within one week. He speaks of 8,000 airstrikes. A drop in the bucket – especially because many were aimed at non-target targets. Action would be to call out the B-52’s at Diego Garcia and carpet bomb the ISIS stronghold in Syria.
  4. Obama speaks (“Our counterterrorism, homeland security, and law enforcement professionals -- federal, state and local -- they are tireless.  They have prevented attacks and they have saved lives.  They are working every hour, every day for our security.”), but fails to mention that it is his very orders that cripple border protection against terrorists.
  5. How seriously can you take this fool Obama (“And that’s why, for more than a year, the United States, France, and our coalition of some 65 nations have been united in one mission -- to destroy these ISIL terrorists and defeat their vile ideology.”) when the United States and 65 other nations cannot defeat a relatively weak enemy. That is, unless the liar-in-chief, is full of crap or has a different agenda.

Bottom line …

Only in such a deliberately divided country could a weakling with zero experience be elected president on the basis of his color rather than competence. And now, we are preparing to duplicate this sad chapter in our history by considering a corrupt, lying, communist with a vagina; allowing sex to trump substance.

Enough is enough.

It is time to recognize that Islam is a warlord-developed political ideology posing as a religion. Recognize that little has changed as the Crusades were about Christendom responding to Muslim aggression – as it is today.

We cannot allow the democrats, in reality the neo-communist party in the USA, to pretend to protect our country, our constitution, or our way of life. They have sold out their honor and their nation for the proverbial thirty pieces of silver and can no longer be trusted to recognize the difference between good and evil. They can’t even be trusted to label evil as evil.

We are so screwed.

In his own words …

CHICAGO POLICE SHOOTING: WAS DAMNING VIDEO WITHHELD UNTIL AFTER RAHM EMANUEL ELECTION?

sv

The undisputed facts surrounding the police involved shooting of 17-year old Laquan McDonald on the night of October 20, 2014 … 

The suspect, 17-year old Laquan McDonald, was confronted at approximately 9:57 p.m. on the night of October 20, 2014 by Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke who discharged his weapon 16 times while 12-15 feet away from the suspect. Five additional on-scene officers did not discharge their weapons.

According to Cook County  State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez said the officer emptied his 9-mm pistol of all 16 rounds and that he was on the scene for just 30 seconds before he started shooting. She said he opened fire just six seconds after getting out of his vehicle and kept firing even though McDonald dropped to the ground after the initial shots.

The facts appear to be corroborated by a police dash-cam video that clearly shows the shooting. The released portion of the video is about seven minutes long and appears to show 17-year-old Laquan McDonald running down the middle of Pulaski Road near 41st Street when Officer Jason Van Dyke, standing next to his SUV, opens fire and McDonald goes down in the street.

Something stinks …

  • It appears that law enforcement personnel knew that this was a “bad shooting” and may have tried to cover-up evidence.

Missing Minutes From Security Video Raises Questions

Chicago police officers deleted footage from a security camera at a Burger King restaurant located fewer than 100 yards from where 17-year old Laquan McDonald was shot and killed, according to a Chicago-area district manager for the food chain.

The 86-minutes of missing video runs from 9:13 p.m. to 10:39 p.m., according to the lawyers for McDonald’s family. He was shot at approximately 9:50 p.m.

After the shooting, according to Jay Darshane, the District Manager for Burger King, four to five police officers wearing blue and white shirts entered the restaurant and asked to view the video and were given the password to the equipment. Three hours later they left, he said.

The next day, when an investigator from the Independent Police Review Authority asked to view the security footage, it was discovered that the 86 minutes of video was missing. <Source>

  • It appears that the the City of Chicago knew it was a bad shooting and agreed to pay “the family” $5million prior to the filing of any lawsuit; and wanted to stone-wall the release of the video claiming an ongoing investigation.

Chicago pays $5 million to family of teen shot 16 times by police, but withholds video

Aldermen approved a $5 million settlement to be granted to the family of a teen shot 16 times by Chicago police last October, but insisted on keeping the dashboard camera footage of the shooting away from the public.

The City Council voted 47-0 on Wednesday to preempt a federal lawsuit by paying the family of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, shot by a Chicago police officer on October 20, 2014. Legal counsel for the city Stephen Patton told reporters that lawyers for the family initially sought $16 million.

According to Patton, dashboard camera recording of the shooting was crucial to the decision. However, the police has refused to release the footage to the public. Mayor Rahm Emanuel said that the Chicago PD and the FBI are withholding the video because it was “central to their investigation” of the shooting. <Source>

     
  • It appears that the City of Chicago was forced by a judge to release the video and did so one day prior to a judge’s deadline …

Chicago says it'll release shooting video per judge's order

The city of Chicago said Thursday it will comply with a judge's order and soon release a video of a white police officer shooting a black teenager 16 times — images that some worry could lead to unrest similar to protests that other cities have seen after police-involved deaths.  The announcement from the city came after Cook County Judge Franklin Valderrama refused to give the Chicago Police Department more time before the release while the city decided whether to appeal. <Source>

  • It appears that the City of Chicago charged the officer with first-degree murder only when the video was released …

Officer charged with murder in teen's death; video released

A white Chicago police officer who shot a black teenager 16 times last year was charged with first-degree murder Tuesday, hours before the city released a video of the killing that many people fear could spark unrest. A judge ordered that the recording be made public by Wednesday. Moments before it was released, the mayor and the police chief appealed for calm. <Source>

  • It appears that the Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez defended the delay in charging the police officer citing complex legal issues …

Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez defended the 13 months it took to charge officer Jason Van Dyke. She said cases involving police officers present “highly complex” legal issues and she would rather take the time to get it right than “rush to judgment.” <Source>

Other than time time it took to gather crime scene evidence, view the statements of the officers, and receive the autopsy and drug screens, what makes this case any different from those previously prepared and prosecuted. Possibly, even waiting for the FBI investigation and the DOJ decision on a civil rights violation is no cause for the 13 month delay. Which leads us to ask the following political question …

Question: Did Rahm Emanuel pull a “Barack Obama” and stonewall the release of the video until after his contentious election?

RE

Did Progressive socialist democrat Chicago Mayo Rahm Emanuel take a page out of the Barack Obama playbook and have his acolytes stonewall the release of a damning October, 2014 police video that shows a white Chicago Police Officer shoot an armed black youth, 17-year-old Laquan McDonald,  16 times – 14 times after he was already down and incapacitated in the street?

Was it done to prevent civil unrest that would surely follow the release of the video? Or was it done so as not to interfere with Rahm Emanuel’s contentious and close reelection bid?

It is no secret that Rahm Emanuel faced “a squeaker,” with some believing he could lose his reelection bid for Mayor in the February, 2015 election. As it was, Emanuel did not achieve a clear victory and was forced into a runoff against Cook County Board Commissioner Jesús "Chuy" García in the April 7, 2015 runoff election. Any major disruption in the city that involved a white versus minority confrontation could have thrown the close election to Emanuel’s minority opposition.

Caveat: The officer remains innocent until proven guilty …

Prosecutors sought to have the veteran officer held without bail until his trial. But Van Dyke’s lawyer, Daniel Herbert, objected, saying the officer was not a risk to flee. “We believe we have a valid defense in this case,” Herbert said.

After court, Herbert, who has previously said Van Dyke feared for his life, questioned the filing of first-degree murder charges.

“Despite what you heard in that courtroom, this is not a murder case,” he told reporters. The one-page criminal complaint lodged against Van Dyke charged him with shooting McDonald “without legal justification and with the intent to kill or do great bodily harm.” <Source>

Bottom line …

Chicago, known for its historic political corruption, is once again in the news. Time will only tell if the communist activists and agitators will infect peaceful protests and whip-up a major frenzy of assaults, looting, and fires. Although, given the prior extrajudicial behavior of the Chicago Police Department, that may be unlikely.

After watching the video, it does appear that the officer did react with excessive force and that the suspect did not present a credible threat to the office’s life at the time of the shooting as the suspect appears to be heading away from the officer. However, a case can be made that any suspect armed with a knife within 21 feet is a credible threat. But, the officer should have stopped shooting when the suspect hit the ground. Again, we do not know the officer’s state of mind.

Much of the original police view of the events have been falsified and I wonder if there is not another factor, such as Rahm Emanuel’s election bid, in play. We will let the courts make the final determination of the officer’s culpability in the death of the suspect.

This is life under the progressive socialist democrats and their enlightened governance of the inner cities.

Time for a change.

OBAMA: MORE AID AND COMFORT TO THE ISLAMIC TERRORISTS?

BO

Don’t you dare bomb those ISIS truck drivers without fair warning! 

White House Gave ISIS 45 Minute Warning Before Bombing Oil Tankers -- Why did it take 15 months for the U.S. to target the Islamic State's oil infrastructure?

warning

The Obama White House is giving ISIS a 45 minute warning before bombing their oil tankers by dropping leaflets advising potential jihadists to flee before air strikes in Syria.

Read more at: White House Gave ISIS 45 Minute Warning Before Bombing Oil Tankers

Prior to an airstrike on 116 oil tanker trucks, our fighter jets made low passes and dropped leaflets, according to an admission last week by Army Col. Steve Warren in a Pentagon teleconference from Baghdad:

“In Al-Bukamal, we destroyed 116 tanker trucks, which we believe will reduce ISIL’s ability to transport its stolen oil products. This is our first strike against tanker trucks, and to minimize risks to civilians, we conducted a leaflet drop prior to the strike. We did a show of force, by — we had aircraft essentially buzz the trucks at low altitude.”

<Source>

Has anyone noticed that these are enemy combatants waging war against Americans and our allies – they are not innocent civilians.

Bottom line …

Barack Obama, the president who assured us that Islam was the religion of peace, that ISIS was the JV team, and that ISIS was contained, is now giving our enemies 45-minutes warning before destroying their infrastructure; placing American aircrews at risk of torture and a gruesome death to drop leaflets. This is sheer idiocy. These are the combatants whose first obligation is to die in the pursuit of jihad, killing as many of the enemy as possible before they die.

What is the purpose of warning the enemy and giving them the opportunity to replace soldiers with innocent civilians to keep a weak-kneed, pro-Muslim president from destroying further shipments of oil?

We are so screwed.

HILLARY CLINTON: CORRUPT LYING HYPOCRITE WILL DO OR SAY ANYTHING TO ADVANCE HER AGENDA ...

In the history of the United States, we have never been presented with a pro-Marxist candidate that is the perfect storm of lying, cheating, corruption, hypocrisy …  

hrc-t
Clinton's list of ignored accusers who Hillary Clinton ensured were ignored, not believed, and harassed

The list of women that stepped forward and publicly complained about the former President are:

  • Juanita Broaddrick (AR)- rape
  • Eileen Wellstone (Oxford) - rape
  • Elizabeth Ward Gracen - rape - quid pro quo, post incident intimidation
  • Regina Hopper Blakely - "forced himself on her, biting, bruising her"
  • Kathleen Willey (WH) - sexual assault, intimidations, threats
  • Sandra Allen James (DC) - sexual assault
  • 22 Year Old 1972 (Yale) - sexual assault
  • Kathy Bradshaw (AK) - sexual assault
  • Cristy Zercher - unwelcomed sexual advance, intimidations
  • Paula Jones (AR) - unwelcomed sexual advance, exposure, bordering on sexual assault
  • Carolyn Moffet -unwelcomed sexual advance, exposure, bordering on sexual assault
  • 1974 student at University of Arkansas - unwelcomed physical contact
  • 1978-1980 - seven complaints per Arkansas state troopers
  • Monica Lewinsky - quid pro quo, post incident character assault
  • Gennifer Flowers - quid pro quo, post incident character assault
  • Dolly Kyle Browning - post incident character assault
  • Sally Perdue - post incident threats
  • Betty Dalton - rebuffed his advances, married to one of his supporters
  • Denise Reeder - apologetic note scanned

<Source>

Bottom line …

As we can plainly see, Hillary Clinton is unsuited for any office other than a jail cell for public corruption, perjury, and obstruction of justice. But it is the rank hypocrisy of tweeting out that “Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.

This is the same Hillary Clinton who formed a White House task force to deal with “bimbo eruptions” and pursued the politics of personal destruction when it came to her philandering husbands criminal sexual activities. Had it not been for Monica Lewinsky’s blue dress, the Clinton’s would be still claiming that she was a whacko intern with a crush on the president.

As for the subject of rape, we have seen where progressives have used the issue for their political gain. From the phony Duke Lacrosse Scandal to the phony reporting on the rape that never was by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Hillary Clinton is a clear and present danger to America and all Americans.

We are so screwed.

WHY PAY THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE FOR PATHETIC PROMISES AND ZERO PERFORMANCE?

Another RNC e-mail soliciting funds, but what has the Republican National Committee actually done?

  • They solicited funds to take back the House of Representatives. We gave them the funding and the votes to win the House and nothing changed, the GOP voted with the progressive socialist democrats.
  • They solicited funds to take back the Senate. We gave them the funding and the votes to win the Senate and nothing changed, the GOP voted with the progressive socialist democrats.
  • They solicited funds to elect Mitt Romney President. We gave them the funding and they gave us Mitt Romney, a man who could not stand on the same stage as Barack Obama and articulate the GOP vision or push back against Obama’s lies.
  • The RNC leadership set the debate schedule – and allowed decent GOP candidates to be savaged by the progressive mainstream media.

 I look at the current crop of candidates and see two totally unqualified candidates as the nomination frontrunners. Partly out of disgust for the status quo and party failures under the RNC, and partly because of the mealy-mouthed performances of candidates who do not have a coherent party platform to differentiate between democrats and the GOP (democrats-lite).

I am tired of campaign promises and zero performance. So screw the RNC and the Northeastern Liberal Elite Wing of the GOP who has allowed Barack Obama to weaken our nation, our military, our economy, our healthcare – and flood the nation with illegal aliens, possibly including terrorists.

Here is their pathetic pitch which arrived today … [my comments in bracketed blue italics]

This is our chance to take back the White House.

GOP_email_logo

Stephen,

As the new speaker of the people’s house, I promise to reignite our conservative vision.

But don’t forget: without a Republican president, we can only go so far.

[This is not true. The House GOP could always put up bills and forced votes to demonstrate to the American people where progressives, socialists, and RINOs stood on individual issues.

The House GOP could have modified House Rules to allow for single purpose bills that clarify rather than confuse the issue with 2000+ page bills nobody reads or understands before they vote.

The House GOP could have defunded odious progressive programs.

The House GOP could have scheduled budget matters so not every funding resolution was never discussed on the floor and became a must-pass crisis that was resolved in the dead of night with little or no scrutiny from the public or media.

The House could have impeached malfeasant public officials up to the President of the United States.

Ditto the Senate who could have demanded President Obama adhere to the Constitution. Where presidential agreements were designated as treaties and needed Senate ratification.

The Senate could have withheld all Obama nominees until Obama stopped violating the Constitution of the United States.]

That doesn’t mean we give up. I promise to fight for our principles every single day President Obama remains in office.

[And, what principles might those be: the crony capitalism that drives the mainstream GOP membership or the conservative values that Americans want?]

But we can also never stop working to take back the White House in 2016.

Stephen, I’m challenging you to support the Official Committee in Charge of Taking Back the White House -- the Republican National Committee (RNC).

pr

stand_with_ryan

We can only succeed if we stand united. I need you on board, Stephen.

Please let me know by tomorrow, Tuesday, November 24 that you’re committed to helping the RNC take back the White House.

Our Party needs your help securing the resources to win.

Note: If you’ve saved your payment information with GOP.com, your donation will go through immediately:

>> Quick Donate $100 <<

>> Quick Donate $75 <<

>> Quick Donate $50 <<

>> Quick Donate $25 <<

I can say this with confidence: we will not win without the RNC’s help.

When Mitt Romney ran for president, the RNC helped us every step of the way.
They raised $371 million. They took on the Mainstream Media. They executed a nationwide grassroots program.

[The RNC gave us a stiff that was so liberal, many of the conservatives sat out the election and put Obama back in charge. Not that Romney’s policies were all that different from the crony capitalism of the Bush Administration.]

But most importantly -- they work to unite every conservative across the country behind our shared goal of electing a conservative president.

[I wonder what e-mail the RINOs got? Trump is not a conservative. Carson is not a conservative. Rubio is not a conservative. Kasich is not a conservative. And, the RNC and GOP seem to hate the only truly qualified and competent conservative in the race – Ted Cruz.]

If we stand united, just think what we can accomplish.

Support the Official Committee in Charge of Taking Back the White House.

Thanks,

Speaker Paul Ryan

Paul Ryan is more pragmatist than he is conservative, but infinitely better that the country club republican John Boehner.

Bottom line …

More empty promises from the people who are content to sit back and rake in their share of the spoils – win, lose, or draw. Just like the croupier in Vegas dragging in the house vigorish.

When are they going to post a conservative party platform and have all of the candidates pledge to support the platform? When are they going to stop playing the progressive’s gotcha games with social issues? When are they going to vet the candidates they allow to run under the GOP banner? And, when are they going to embrace conservatism, smaller government, lower taxes, fewer rules and regulations rather than be the party that goes along to get along as they promote the type of crony capitalism that doomed George Bush (43)?

I urge my fellow conservatives to donate to the individual candidates of your choice and tell the RNC you do not reward empty promises and failures at all levels.

With the current RNC, we are so screwed.

TERRORISM: SOME PASSIVE PROGRESSIVE PUSSIES NOW COVERING THEIR COLLECTIVE ASSES WHILE OTHERS CONTINUE TO LIE

From the Liar-in-Chief, President Barack Obama …

Obama says Syrian refugees are no bigger threat to U.S. than ‘tourists’

President Obama said Thursday that Syrian refugees are no more dangerous to the U.S. than tourists, and he accused Republican presidential candidates of stoking fears about the refugees and closing the Guantanamo Bay terrorist detention center to score political points.

Speaking to reporters at a summit in the Philippines, Mr. Obama said the "overwhelming numbers" of Syrians who are applying for entry to the U.S. "are children, women, families — themselves victims of terrorism." He said they are already subject to rigorous vetting by U.S. security officials.

"The idea that somehow they pose a more significant threat than all the tourists who pour into the United States every single day just doesn't jive with reality," Mr. Obama said. "So my expectation is after the initial spasm of rhetoric, the people will settle down, take a look at the facts, and we'll be able to proceed." <Source>

How can you even begin to trust a man that is willing to lie to the American people? Remember, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period!” or the deliberate lie that the 9/11 attack in Benghazi, Libya was a spontaneous protest caused by a anti-Muslim video? And, more proof of his current lies …

It appears from United Nations’ reports that the overwhelming majority of “refugees” are not children, women, families, but single men of jihadist age …

And, there appear to be only 51% coming from Syria; with the rest from all over the Middle East and Africa.<Source: United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees>

About that vetting …

Senior Obama officials have warned of challenges in screening refugees from Syria

Several high-level administration officials have warned in recent months just how challenging this can be. While they say U.S. security measures are much better than in the past, vetting Syrian refugees poses a quandary: How do you screen people from a war-torn country that has few criminal and terrorist databases to check?

“I don’t, obviously, put it past the likes of ISIL to infiltrate operatives among these refugees, so that’s a huge concern of ours,” Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said at a security industry conference in September, using another name for the Islamic State. He added that the government has “a pretty aggressive program” for screening refugees but that he is less confident about European nations.

FBI Director James Comey added in congressional testimony last month that “a number of people who were of serious concern” slipped through the screening of Iraq War refugees, including two arrested on terrorism-related charges. “There’s no doubt that was the product of a less than excellent vetting,” he said.

Although Comey said the process has since “improved dramatically,” Syrian refugees will be even harder to check because, unlike in Iraq, U.S. soldiers have not been on the ground collecting information on the local population. “If we don’t know much about somebody, there won’t be anything in our data,” he said. “I can’t sit here and offer anybody an absolute assurance that there’s no risk associated with this.”

<Source>

We can’t even track Mexicans coming into our country, what makes anyone think we are going to track terrorists? Especially since there are no databases on most foreign people and the transliteration and name usage of foreign citizens precludes clean searches.

And about the President’s situational awareness …

ISIS Is Not Getting ‘Stronger,’ We Have ‘Contained’ Them

Friday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” President Barack Obama seemingly downplayed the threat of ISIS in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that aired on Friday’s broadcast of “Good Morning America.”

Stephanopoulos asked Obama if ISIS was gaining in strength, to which Obama denied they were.

“I don’t think they’re gaining strength,” Obama responded. “What is true is that from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq, and in Syria they’ll come in, they’ll leave, but you don’t see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain.”

“What we have not yet been able to do is to completely decapitate their command and control structures,” he admitted. “We’ve made some progress in trying to reduce the flow of foreign fighters and part our goal has to be to recruit more effective Sunni partners in Iraq to really go on offense rather than simply engage in defense.”  <Source: Obama: ISIS Is Not Getting 'Stronger,' We Have 'Contained' Them>

And, then there is this: the planned weakening of America  …

Obama says gun control to be top issue of final year

President Obama hopes to make gun control the top issue of his final year in office, saying Americans aren't more violent than other people but they "have more deadly weapons to act out their rage."

In an interview published Tuesday in GQ magazine, Mr. Obama said easy access to guns is "the only variable" between the U.S. and other developed countries.

"The main thing that I've been trying to communicate over the last several of these horrific episodes is that, contrary to popular belief, Americans are not more violent than people in other developed countries," Mr. Obama said. "But they have more deadly weapons to act out their rage."

Asked by interviewer Bill Simmons of HBO if gun control will be the "dominant" issue on his agenda next year, Mr. Obama replied, "I hope so." <Source>

Another lie? Here is an American president, charged with protecting the safety and security of the United States, attempting to thwart the Constitution’s Second Amendment and disarm law-abiding American citizens while creating enabling criminals and crazies that do not respect or abide by the nation’s laws – and the terrorists who could care less. Creating a larger soft-target for terrorists and those who wish to do us harm.

One mitigating solution: the Second Amendment …

Interpol Chief: Armed Citizenry Might Be Answer To Terrorism

The secretary general of Interpol, the Europe-based international policing agency, has some near-revolutionary thoughts on what people can do to protect themselves against terrorists like the group that killed dozens of people at a Kenyan mall last month. Addressing the topic of “soft targets,” meaning gathering places that aren’t secured like government or military buildings, the official, Ronald Noble, said, “Societies have to think about how they’re going to approach the problem. One is to say we want an armed citizenry; you can see the reason for that. Another is to say the enclaves are so secure that in order to get into the soft target you’re going to have to pass through extraordinary security.”

Speaking to ABC News, the American law-enforcement veteran went further: “Ask yourself: If that was Denver, Colorado, if that was Texas, would those guys have been able to spend hours, days, shooting people randomly?” Noble said, referring to states with pro-gun traditions. “What I’m saying is it makes police around the world question their views on gun control. It makes citizens question their views on gun control. You have to ask yourself, ‘Is an armed citizenry more necessary now than it was in the past with an evolving threat of terrorism?’ This is something that has to be discussed.” <Source>

Covering their collective asses …

DC Police Chief: ‘Best Option’ Is For Citizens To Take Out Paris-Style Attackers

In a 60 Minutes interview [aired] November 22, Washington DC police chief Cathy Lanier said taking out the gunmen in a Paris-style attack is the “best option” for citizens between the time they call 911 and the moment police arrive.

Lanier said citizens basically have three options–they can “run, hide, or fight.” And she said choosing to “take the gunman out” is the best option if the citizen is in a position to do so.

According to CBS News, Lanier said, “If you’re in a position to try and take the gunman down, to take the gunman out, it’s the best option for saving lives before police can get there.” She admitted that such advice runs “counterintuitive” to what police have been saying for decades, but she stressed that the situation has changed.

Lanier said: “We always tell people, ‘Don’t…don’t take action. Call 911. Don’t intervene in the robbery’…we’ve never told people, ‘Take action.’ [But] it’s a different…scenario.”

She also made clear that she does not want Americans to be paranoid, but she does want them to be alert and prepared. <Source>

Imagine that, the Police Chief of Washington, D.C. – the home of some of the strictest gun control in America – is singing a different tune. Let us not forget that Washington was the scene of a landmark Supreme Court case (District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 in 2008  which affirmed a citizen’s right to keep and bear arms.

Bottom line …

We will see more and more people go on the record as suggesting we may wish to rethink an armed population, if for no other reason than to cover their collective asses while they continue to pursue their toxic progressive policies.

Law enforcement is sworn to keep the general peace and protect the administration – not to protect individuals. Therefore, you are on your own if trouble strikes. By the time the “authorities” arrive, you and your family might be dead or grievously wounded. And, this applies to any threat – criminal, crazy, or terrorist.

It is time to clear the progressive socialist democrats out of government and reassert our rights to carry and bear arms without restrictions. Just as the progressives want to hold gun manufacturers responsible for gun violence, how about we hold government officials responsible for deaths committed by illegal aliens in sanctuary cities, those who allow serious gun-related crimes to be plea bargained away, or who try to create a larger pool of victims by bargaining away our Second Amendment protections.

And, in case you didn’t know … knives and other weapons are covered under the Second Amendment.

WHAT A LEADER WITH A CLEAR WORLDVIEW AND SOLUTIONS SOUNDS LIKE ...

There is little doubt that the leader of the greatest nation on the face of the Earth, the United States of America, could learn much from the leader of one of the smallest nations on the face of the Earth, Israel.

bnob

There is little doubt that Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, not only can explain free market economics, but that he understands exactly what is occurring in the Middle East. And, has proven he can implement policies, with his strongest ally, the United States of America, to keep his nation and people safe among bloodthirsty nations that would like nothing better than to annihilate the State of Israel.

Here is a video of Netanyahu speaking at the American Enterprise Institute …

Netanyahu on economics …

So how do I explain the idea of free markets and their centrality in today’s world? And so, three weeks later, I did a press conference and I said, I want to fall back on my first day in basic training in the Israeli paratroops.

The commander put us in a straight line and he said, you are now going to take a race. But it’s a special kind of race. Each man looked to his right; you are the first man, he pointed to me. Put the guy to your right on your shoulders, and the next guy did that, and then the guy after him did that. And I got a pretty big guy. He was heavy. The next guy was the smallest guy in the platoon, and he got the biggest guy on his shoulders. And the third guy was a big guy, and he got a small guy, and so on. And then the commander blew the whistle. I barely managed to move forward. The next guy, the guy next to me, the small guy with the big guy on his shoulders, collapsed. And the third guy took off like a rocket and won the race.

And I said, in the modern economies, all national economies are pairs of a public sector sitting on the shoulder of the private sector. In our case, the public sector became too big, too fat. (Applause.) And we’re about to collapse. So we have to put the fat man on a diet and we have to strengthen the guy at the bottom, give him a lot of oxygen in his lungs. That means lowering tax rates. And, third, we have to remove the obstacles, the barriers to the race, barriers to competition.

By the way, this became known as the fat man/thin man thing, and taxi drivers could repeat it. But, effectively, we ended up doing exactly that.

We constrained the growth of public spending. We lowered tax rates. I had a big argument about that. They said who’s this guy “Laufer”? I said, no, no, it’s not “Laufer.” His name is Laffer. And we actually tried it. And it works. It worked for us, big time. (Applause.)

And we instituted a lot, a lot of reforms. I mean, even earlier, as prime minister in my first term, I removed, you know, all constraints on foreign currency exchange. And that was supposed to collapse our economy. And, of course, everybody was warning me that a mountain of money will move. It did – into the country, you know.

An elegant and understandable explanation of why a growing public sector, including its corrupt public employee unions, will eventually collapse the private sector.

Netanyahu on the Palestinian issues …

The reason, first of all, the conflict that we have in the Middle East is multiple. It used to be said that the core of the conflict, in the singular, in the Middle East is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Well, that went by the window. When you see Iraq collapsing, Syria collapsing, Yemen collapsing, Libya collapsing and everything else in turmoil, nothing to do with us.

The core of the conflicts in the Middle East is the battle between modernity and early, primitive medievalism. That’s the core of the conflicts. (Applause.)

The core of the specific conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is the persistent Palestinian refusal to recognize a Jewish state in any boundary. This is why this conflict persisted for 50 years before there was a state, before there were territories, before there were settlements.

If that were the core of the conflict, the settlements, why did it take place when my grandfather landed in Jaffa in 1920? Jews were murdered then for what? There was no West Bank. There were no settlements. Now, that continued in 1921, 1929, 1936, 1939, 1948. What was that all about? Nineteen sixty-seven, for nearly half a century we were being attacked because there was a persistent refusal to accept us in any boundary.

Well, we got into these territories as a result of the conflict. And what Arab propaganda has done by endless repetition is to turn the result of the conflict into its cause.

Now, how do you know that that’s the case? Because we left Gaza completely, every last centimeter, and they’re still firing rockets at us from Gaza. And when you ask them, why are you doing this? Is it to liberate the West Bank? And they say, yeah, sure. That too, but no. It’s to liberate Palestine, you know, Acre, Haifa, Jaffa. They always get back to Jaffa.

So now I turn to the other guys, to the Palestinian Authority and not to Hamas. At least they don’t practice violence, which is important. And I say, well, what about you? Are you willing to recognize the Jewish state? Are you willing to recognize the fact – you’ll have a nation-state for the Palestinian people.

How about a nation-state for the Jewish people? I mean, after all, we’ve only been there almost 4,000 years, and we recognize there’s two peoples there. We’re willing to make the deal. Are you willing to make the deal? Are you willing to recognize the Jewish state?

Because there’s no point in making another Palestinian state, another Arab state that will continue the battle from improved lines against the Jewish state. Are you willing to end the conflict, give up the claim of the so-called right of return? Make peace.

And you know what happens when you ask them that? They move. They say, oh, we’re willing to recognize Israel. I didn’t ask Israel. I said are you willing to terminate all claims to the Jewish state? You won’t get Jaffa. You won’t flood us with refugees. Are you willing to do that? And the answer is they’re not. We will have peace when the Palestinians will accord us what they ask us to accord them.

We’re willing to have – let them have a state of their own. They have to reconcile themselves to the fact that we have a state of our own and it’s here to stay. That is the core of the problem. (Applause.) In the Middle East, modernity against medievalism, Israel and the Palestinians, the persistent refusal to recognize a Jewish state in any boundary. I hope that changes.

Again, an elegant and understandable explanation of why there cannot be any peace between Israel and the Palestinian state. Unfortunately, President Obama, and now John Kerry, keep demanding that Israel cede ground to the Palestinians – but have never gotten beyond a simple declaration that the Palestinians are willing to recognize Israel as a sovereign state and give up their ambitions to occupy Israel in the future.

What is going on now …

President Obama certainly needs something from the American Jews:  support for the progressive socialist democrats in the upcoming 2016 presidential election cycle.

After disrespecting Benjamin Netanyahu and the State of Israel for the entirety of his presidency, Jews are starting to notice that Obama’s worldview is not only pro-Muslim, pro-Palestinian, anti-Jew, but also bad for the economy and the safety and security of the United States.

Obama is also having a difficult time convincing his core constituency, the Blacks, that they have not been disrespected, disadvantaged, and murdered in the inner cities under democrat governance. That their jobs are flowing to illegal aliens. And, that any promise President Obama makes is as big a lie as “If you want to keep your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period.”

So how else can you explain the release of a man fairly convicted for selling out his nation to convey classified information to Israel. Yes, we spy on them and they spy on us. But, there are consequences to being a traitor.

Jonathan Pollard, American Who Spied for Israel, Released After 30 Years

For 30 years, Mr. Pollard was at the center of a profound struggle between Washington and Jerusalem, one that shadowed American presidents and Israeli prime ministers since Ronald Reagan was in the White House. The Americans called him a traitor. The Israelis deemed him a soldier, to some a hero. At times, both made him a diplomatic bargaining chip.

The only American ever sentenced to life in prison for spying for an ally, Mr. Pollard was freed on parole to an uncertain future.

“After three long and difficult decades, Jonathan has been reunited with his family,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel said in a statement from Jerusalem. Noting that he had “raised Jonathan’s case for years” with American leaders, Mr. Netanyahu added, “May this Sabbath bring him much joy and peace that will continue in the years and decades ahead.” <Source>

The only thing that could have convinced President Obama to release Pollard is he needs the disaffected Jews to overlook ant-Jewish behavior and return to the fold. In fact, it appears that Obama is hedging his bet for round two – keeping Pollard from traveling to Israel, where he is regarded as a hero by many – until Obama is ready to make secondary demands.

Bottom line …

Watch Netanyahu’s speak. This is what a patriot sounds like when he is defending his nation and his people; both militarily and economically. Men and women serve openly side-by-side in the Israeli defense forces. There are no social experiments involving gays and transgenders. The Israelis need everyone pulling together to face existential threats. They take care of their own people. They try to unite rather than divide.

Israel is perhaps one of the only places where leaders are not deified and vociferously questioned by a tough media and an even tougher public. Israel is the only place where you have arguments for argument’s sake and eleven opinions are likely to come from ten people in the same room. But, in the final analysis, they act together. They have learned that people, Israelis and Arabs alike, will do bad things on occasion; commit heinous acts. But they do not let that define them as a people and their leaders do not exploit the tragedy and crisis for domestic political gain.

If we continue under the progressive social democrats into pursuing President Obama’s divisive and transformative politics, we are doomed as a nation. Or as my best friend Al is wont to say, “We are so screwed.”

HILLARY CLINTON: FIGHTING FOR US?

Throughout her long political career, Hillary Clinton has fought for only one thing: herself …

hcfm

From promoting her husband, to steering business to the Clinton Foundation, to using her “friends” to spread lies, to hustling for the trans-pacific partnership, to the nomination for the presidency … it has always been about Hillary Clinton and her personal agenda. She apparently believes she is the smartest person in the room and clearly above the law unlike the “little people” who often stand in her way. She apparently has no core values that cannot be changed for expediency, and appears to have no compunction about corruption, lying, and criminality. Whether it is perjury, obstruction of justice, selling offical favors, or simply corruption, there appear to be no ethical or moral boundaries.

When it comes to Hillary’s campaign slogan, Pogo said it best …

whmte

Bottom line …

We can no longer tolerate corruption in politics or corrupt candidates who lie with impunity and sell out America to the highest bidder. As we have seen with the Obama Administration, the progressive socialist democrats can no longer be trusted to protect America and ALL Americans. This administration denigrates and disadvantages our friends and allies while conferring significant advantages on our enemies. Never before has a president openly attacked law enforcement officers while supporting communist activists and agitators that have laid waste to cities with their looting, destruction of private and public property, and their promotion of anarchy.

We can no longer tolerate official racism in government. Where color over competence and sex over substance has produced corrupt, inept, and dangerous leaders who lead us in the wrong direction. How can the racist Congressional Black Caucus exist – or any other caucus for that matter, when each caucus is little more than a fundraising scam aimed at a particular segment of our nation?

How can we continue to allow a single person in either chamber of Congress to withhold or withdraw legislation; using legislative tricks to pass last-minute legislation that few have read and even fewer understand in the middle of the night? Using legislative tricks to pass sweeping legislation that cannot get a straight vote like the Senate version of the Affordable Care and Patient Protection act that was passed by the Senate and deemed passed by the House. An act that was a lie from its title – neither affordable nor protective of patients – to its unconstitutional modification by presidential fiat.

How can we allow nine people in the Supreme Court to make law – the sole purview of Congress – from the bench. Their job is to rule on the constitutionality of a law and return it to congress if it is found wanting. Not to invent new and novel interpretations of the Constitution to empower the government to act in an Orwellian manner. Claiming that it is constitutional to take private property from one individual and convey it to another individual for profit, with the government paying the original owner a pittance of what the property is worth. Claiming that the President can lie to the people and tell the court a different story in order to seek a favorable ruling.

We are so screwed and we must take a stand.

We must not allow violations of the Constitution. We must not allow the soft tyranny of administrative rules and regulations that benefit the politicians and the special interests in this country. We must not allow provably corrupt, criminal, and lying politicians to assume office – buying votes with little more than promises that cannot be kept without further damaging America.

Wake up people. Your country is being flushed down the drain by the progressive socialist democrats and the GOP is pulling the chain. Other than Ted Cruz, a principled conservative, each of the GOP candidates represents the past. Most refuse to tell the truth. And, some are simply outrageously unbelievable as candidates.

But it is our call, and if we do nothing, it will be us that suffers.

MARK LEVIN AND GEORGE SOROS THINK ALIKE? HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?

Mark Levin and George Sorosgsml

Once you get past the angry tone and the yelling which serves to modulate his normal monotone, you will not find a more intelligent, articulate advocate for liberty than Mark Levin. And, on the other side, the raspy-voice of the progressive socialist democrats, a man who profits mightily from political chaos and confusion and who appears to be trying to coerce the United States into become just another unexceptional member of the world community – dominated by oligarchs and ruled by an enlightened elite. 

Consider the following excerpts from Levin’s book, Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America, which basically calls out the playbook of the progressive socialist democrats  …  [my comments in bracketed blue italics]

Karl Popper, a philosopher who eloquently deconstructed the false assumptions and scientific claims of utopianism, arguing it is totalitarian in form and substance, observed that “[a]ny social science which does not teach the impossibility of rational social construction is entirely blind to the most important facts of social life, and must overlook the only social laws of real validity and of real importance. Social sciences seeking to provide a background for social engineering cannot, therefore, be true descriptions of social facts.

[Imagine both men looking to Karl Popper to make their points in the opening chapters of their respective work.]

Utopianism also attempts to shape and dominate the individual by doing two things at once: it strips the individual of his uniqueness, making him indistinguishable from the multitudes that form what is commonly referred to as “the masses,” but it simultaneously assigns him a group identity based on race, ethnicity, age, gender, income, etc., to highlight differences within the masses. It then exacerbates old rivalries and disputes or it incites new ones. This way it can speak to the well-being of “the people” as a whole while dividing them against themselves, thereby stampeding them in one direction or another as necessary to collapse the existing society or rule over the new one. 

[The key to political dominance is to stamp out self-reliant individualism in favor of conformity enforced by the considerable psychological and physical forces of peer pressure. To create exploitable groups of victims, all needing political redress of their grievances. And, as we have seen with American Blacks under the governance of progressive socialist democrats, relief that never seems to arrive. For without a continuing coalition of victim classes, the progressive socialist democrats would fade from power because of their poor performance in both domestic and foreign affairs.]

Where utopianism is advanced through gradualism rather than revolution, albeit steady and persistent as in democratic societies, it can deceive and disarm an unsuspecting population, which is largely content and passive.

[Gradualism, or the “salami technique” – eating one thin slice at a time until the whole large salami is consumed – is barely noticed, if at all, by an audience kept entertained by the new, novel, and the bizarre. No wonder that politicians have become masters of distraction and misdirection, actors and magicians who create illusions to make smoke appear to be as solid as steel.]

It is sold as reforming and improving the existing society’s imperfections and weaknesses without imperiling its basic nature. Under these conditions, it is mostly ignored, dismissed, or tolerated by much of the citizenry and celebrated by some. Transformation is deemed innocuous, well-intentioned, and perhaps constructive but not a dangerous trespass on fundamental liberties.

[How many egregious acts, many criminal, are committed by those who seek refuge in the idea that the end justifies the means, fair or foul, and that good intentions trump the actual harm caused by ill-conceived, malfeasant, or viciously evil actions?]

Tocqueville observed, “By this system the people shake off their state of dependence just long enough to select their master and then relapse into it again. A great many persons . . . are quite contented with this sort of compromise between administrative despotism and the sovereignty of the people; and they think they have done enough for the protection of individual freedom when they have surrendered it to the power of the nation at large . . .”

[What? We think we are making a rational choice to improve society, but all we are doing is selecting the better of two evils presented by political parties that are knowingly complicit in presenting flawed candidates who can be manipulated by the special interests in order to continue plundering our national assets and consolidating their control over the political system? Thus, content that we have done our part to preserve our liberties, we lapse, once again, into uncaring apathy until the next crisis or next election.]

Utopianism also finds a receptive audience among the society’s disenchanted, disaffected, dissatisfied, and maladjusted who are unwilling or unable to assume responsibility for their own real or perceived conditions but instead blame their surroundings, “the system,” and others. They are lured by the false hopes and promises of utopian transformation and the criticisms of the existing society, to which their connection is tentative or nonexistent.

Improving the malcontent’s lot becomes linked to the utopian cause. Moreover, disparaging and diminishing the successful and accomplished becomes an essential tactic. No one should be better than anyone else, regardless of the merits or value of his contributions. By exploiting human frailties, frustrations, jealousies, and inequities, a sense of meaning and self-worth is created in the malcontent’s otherwise unhappy and directionless life.

[Many people participate in politics as they would in rooting for a sports team; for the feeling of camaraderie, recognition, acceptance, and belonging. The fallacy is that a political party cannot reciprocate love or any other emotion – yet, you find people anthropomorphizing politicial parties and corporations as if they were people. These are the people being told by the progressive socialist democrats that it is not your fault if you are illiterate, impoverished, or even a criminal. It is society's fault and our political party hears you, understands your pain, and can help improve your life – in return for your vote, your time, and/or a small political contribution.]

[Ask yourself who is behind Occupy Wall Street or Black Lives Matter and you might be surprised. In many cases, you will find professional activists and agitators, many linked to the communist party or other radical groups, who are hell-bent on destroying our system from within. By overloading the system, by creating chaos, or by simply clogging the streets and spreading fear among the populace.

Where is the tipping point where fear overcomes rationality to the extent that you attack those law enforcement officers who are trying to protect your life and property from evildoers? Demonizing the entirely of the police for the actions of a statistically insignificant few. Overlooking the daily slaughter of your fellow citizens in the inner cities governed for decades by the progressive socialist democrats who have siphoned off billions of taxpayer dollars and left the community in a greater state of poverty, illiteracy, and criminal activity.]

Simply put, equality in misery—that is, equality of result or conformity—is advanced as a just, fair, and virtuous undertaking. Liberty, therefore, is inherently immoral, except where it avails equality.

[Consider the inherent evil of those who evildoers attempt to spin loss of freedom and liberty into a desirable condition. By re-defining words, claiming up is down, good is bad, and evil is acceptable. Where the military weapons of war give way to political correctness, multiculturalism, and moral equivalency.] 

Chapter one: The Tyranny of Utopia -- Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America by Mark R. Levin

And, if you do not believe that the self-serving progressive socialist democrats, like Soros, do not understand what they are doing is harmful to society, one need only consider this excerpt from a lecture given by George Soros at the Central European University on October 26, 2009, and titled "General Theory of Reflexivity" …

"In his books Popper argued that the empirical truth cannot be known with absolute certainty. Even scientific laws can't be verified beyond a shadow of a doubt: they can only be falsified by testing.

One failed test is enough to falsify, but no amount of conforming instances is sufficient to verify.

[Science is not performed by consensus, especially by those espousing the popular view of science to secure some personal or professional advantage. And, then there are the people who chose to ignore studies that falsify data or illustrate the improbability of the conclusions presented.]

Scientific laws are hypothetical in character and their truth remains subject to testing.

[Global warming is nothing more than a scientific hypothesis and the supporters of this hypothesis point to computer models that have been falsified on the basis of incomplete or inaccurate assumptions, faulty programming, the use of compensatory parameters to insure a particular outcome, and dodgy data which itself has been manipulated to show a bias towards the hypothesis.]

Ideologies which claim to be in possession of the ultimate truth are making a false claim;therefore, they can be imposed on society only by force. This applies to Communism, Fascism and National Socialism alike."

Consider what Popper is saying. In this context, public policies justified by selected scientific studies border on a false ideology and thus can only be imposed on society by force. Which looks like the path we are rapidly implementing under the progressive socialist democrats.

Bottom line …

I never thought that I would see the day when a staunch conservative like Mark Levin and a progressive agitator/activist like George Soros.would open their respective works by quoting the Austrian-British philosopher Karl Popper.

I strongly suggest you read Mark Levin’s book, visit his website, or listen to his show. But most of all I urge you to think about the ways in which you are being manipulated and your freedoms are giving way to the administrative tyranny of a system that has tens of thousands of unintelligible laws that are overlapping, conflicting, or contradictory – yet, you can be fined and sent to jail for any one of them you have never heard about. As for Soros, you can see his actions daily in the activities of Hillary Clinton and the progressive socialist democrats.

We are in trouble …

  • Consider the case where you can be fined or jailed for simply taking your own money out of a bank in such a manner as to appear to be a drug dealer.
  • Consider the case where your assets can be charged with a crime and taken from you – even if you are never charged with a criminal act.
  • Consider the case where your private property can be confiscated by the government and given to another private citizen so that they may profit from developing your land. Where you are paid a pittance based on a distressed value and the developer reaps an ongoing fortune. Where you can be literally thrown off your land by the police and jailed if you resist.
  • Consider the case where your retirement nest egg is eroded to the point of forcing you back to work, while the Federal Reserve holds interest rates on your bank accounts and investments artificially low to re-capitalize technically insolvent financial institutions that are recovering from the mortgage meltdown. Even while the same actions with housing and derivatives are being implemented today.
  • Consider the case where your safety net, paid for by paycheck withdrawals, is under pressure from illegal aliens who have no right to be in the country – and where one political party sees cheap labor to be exploited and the other political party sees perpetual power by creating a larger underclass.

We are moving farther and farther away from the ideas of our Founding Fathers, our Constitution is being denigrated as being archaic, and the political class is reaching a self sustaining critical mass where your vote literally does not count. Somewhat like 9 Supreme Court Justices making up laws as they go; or the leadership of the House or Senate denying the will of the people by withholding legislation and refusing to bring it to the floor for a vote.

These evildoers are not stupid – and if they are stupid, they are being manipulated by the evildoers behind them. We need to take back our country before it is too late and we are forced to engage in another revolutionary war; this time with the outcome being uncertain and dicey.

We are so screwed.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER: OBAMA AND NIGERIA'S PRESIDENT BUHARI

Another delusional kleptocratic president who believes saying something makes it true …

Nigeria: 32 Killed in Boko Haram Attack on Market -- The attack comes just days after the Nigerian president deemed the extremist group 'very close to defeat.'

In Nigeria, at least 32 people have been killed in a suicide bombing at a crowded market in the northeastern city of Yola.  It’s the latest in a series of deadly attacks attributed to the militant group Boko Haram. The attack comes just days after Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari visited the area and deemed Boko Haram "very close to defeat." <Source>

Remember the vigorous response by the President of the United States who wants to help Syrian refugees or the hashtag diplomacy the First Lady? …

With our special forces, hostage rescue operators, and overwhelming intelligence and military resources, the First Lady apparently took time from planning her next taxpayer-funded multi-million dollar vacation to show support for the 276 female students that were kidnapped from a government school in Nigeria by the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram.

Her husband, President Obama “agreed to send experts to Nigeria to assist in the search for the students. The American team consists of military and law enforcement officers, specializing in ‘intelligence, investigations, hostage negotiation, information-sharing and victim assistance.’ The US is not considering sending armed forces.” Probably accompanied by a cadre of lawyers to insure that any assets did not actually cause harm to the terrorists or indigenous civilians.

The United Nations also vigorously responded to the situation with a strong message from United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who said he condemned the abduction. Ironically, the abduction was also condemned by the former Nigerian military ruler, now President, Muhammadu Buhari.

The delusional Obama tells the world ISIS has been contained …

Why did Obama declare ISIS 'contained' the day before Paris attack?

Washington (CNN)On Thursday, President Barack Obama declared in an interview that ISIS had been "contained," asserting that the terror cell had been stalled in Iraq and Syria.

The next day, ISIS claimed responsibility for one of the worst terror attacks in European history, shattering what had been a growing sense of momentum in the global fight against extremists and driving home the frightening ability of ISIS to inspire and possibly coordinate attacks outside their power base in Iraq and in Syria. <Source>

Bottom line …

I can only believe that two Presidents think alike, that any crisis is a wonderful opportunity to give a speech written by others and played-out with all of the sincereity and courage that it takes to read a TelePrompTer.

It appears that the President Obama is trying to play out the clock, praying that there is no significant terrorist attack in the United States which would forever mark his presidency as the worst in history, another historical distinction that would trump the election of a president based on his color and not his competence.

President Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats, along with Obama-Plus nominee Hillary Clinton, represent a clear and present threat to America and all Americans.

We are so screwed.
