Netanyahu’s speech scores big in showdown over Iran

March 3, 2015

Barack Obama has his own reasons for continuing to contemptuously disregard Israel’s concerns regarding a nuclear Iran —- which presents a global threat that should concern us all. The rift between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reached epic proportions leading up to Netanyahu’s address to Congress this morning.

On Monday, Netanyahu downplayed their increasingly strained relationship, but said he has a “moral obligation” to speak out against a deal with Iran that potentially threatens Israel’s existence.

Much to Obama’s consternation the Prime Minister was invited to address the joint session by House Speaker John Boehner. Dozens of Democrats including Arizona’s CD 3 U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva are boycotting the speech. Although no members of the Obama administration attended the event, Netanyahu was interrupted by applause 41 times.

Further sticking his finger in the Prime Minister’s eye, Obama announced he had scheduled a conference call on the crisis in Ukraine to coincide with the timing of the speech.

Still gracious while underscoring Israel’s right to defend itself, Netanyahu said, “My speech is not intended to show any disrespect to President Obama or the esteemed office that he holds. I have great respect for both. But while American leaders worry about the security of their country, Israeli leaders worry about the survival of their country.”

Netanyahu charged that Iran’s “goons in Gaza, its lackeys in Lebanon and the Revolutionary Guard in the Golan Heights” act as its proxies. Iran’s ‘global terror network’ poses a threat with ‘tentacles of terror region throughout the region.”

GOP Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) summed up the speech using these words, “Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu asked for America’s unwavering support for Israel, our friend and ally in a tumultuous region,” adding, “It’s unfortunate the Prime Minister even had to ask.”  Burr is the son of a Methodist minister.

Fifty Democrats  —- 42 House and 7 Senate members joined by VP Joe Biden, shamefully boycotted Netanyahu’s address. Many will remember Democrats at their own 2012 national Convention booing the addition of God and Jeering the mention of Jerusalem in their party platform. It’s in their genes.

This ad sponsored by the Republican Jewish Coalition aired in advanced of today’s speech.

WH terror warning: focus on “right wing” threat — again

February 22, 2015

Obama’s former DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano issued similar report in 2009

A new administration report on security threats surfaced this past week as Barack Obama was wrapping up his three-day summit on extremism during which the words “Islamic extremists, jihadists or radical fundamental Islamic terrorists” were never uttered. Invited guests at the conference included Pro-jihad, anti-Israel Islamic clerics according to this well researched article in One News Now.

The deflecting report issued by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) instead redirects urgency toward domestic terrorist movements —- “right wingers”  —- said to be engaged in a sovereign citizen extremist movement.

 CNN which reviewed the intelligent assessment that was not made public, reports “federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to — and in some cases greater than — the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.”

Apparently missed were the grisly reports last week that fundamental Islamic terrorists escalated their ongoing bloody carnage by burning alive 40 caged Iraqis. Earlier the civilized world was horrified to see photos of the beheadings of 21 Egyptian Christians by these same ISIS fanatics. The insulting report targeting Americans comes as ISIS madness continues to spiral in unimagined ways.

In April 2009, Janet Napolitano, then Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, released this report on homegrown terrorists, singling out our own returning war vets, comparing them to Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.

Is it any wonder former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani questioned Obama’s love of America?

“We are not at war with Islam,” Obama declared, setting the tone for the conference. “We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.” Sounding a lot like Obama equating Islamic terrorist to evil done in the name of Christ (video) at the recent Prayer Breakfast, Vice President Joe Biden used his appearance at the summit to compare the virulent rise in Islamic terror attacks to right-wing extremists and militias who commit violence “in the name of the Bible.”


Pelosi’s provocative app’t to House Intelligence

January 18, 2015

Although Democrats are defending House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s oddly timed appointment of U.S. Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) to the House’s Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), others have expressed concerns about naming the congressman with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood to this committee charged with oversight of the United States Intelligence Community —- including intelligence related activities of 17 elements of the US Government, and the Military Intelligence Program.

HPSCI’s subcommittees deal with Technical and Tactical Intelligence, Terrorism. Human Intelligence, Analysis, and Counterintelligence—- including the Muslim Brotherhood.

This 6-page opening statement going back to April 13, 2011, illustrates the concerns even at that time. Now retired U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) said, “We have heard the full spectrum of views on, and approaches to interaction with, the Brotherhood from various government officials. This inconsistency makes me feel like our government is playing checkers while the Muslim Brotherhood is playing chess.”

Robert Spencer, writing for FrontPage Mag provides important background on Rep. Andre Carson’s appointment. Take time to read his well researched report.

Carson, raised as a Baptist and educated in a Catholic school, converted to Islam as an adult. He has attracted attention for his public statements, including when he was guest speaker at the 2012 Islamic Circle of North America/Muslim American Society convention where he said American schools should be modeled on madrassas —- Islamic schools noted for their penchant to promote repressive, anti-Westernized culture and hatred toward Christians and Jews —- “where the foundation is the Qur’an.”  Both sponsoring groups have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Moments later, according to this report in the UK’s Daily Mail, Carson, a former police officer, warned undercover law enforcement he suspected of being at the event looking for “secret meetings” that “Allah will not allow you to stop us.”

He has a history of making wild and unsubstantiated statements. On August 28, 2011, Carson referred to the Tea Party movement using these words: “This is the effort that we’re seeing of Jim Crow. Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now of this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me… hanging on a tree.” Despite calls to resign, Carson said, “I stand on the truth of what I spoke.”

Good going, Ms. Pelosi.

 


Mexico aids its own citizens efforts to stay in U$A

January 16, 2015

Are Republican House and Senate majorities poised to retreat on amnesty?

Mexicans living illegally in the United States are not only getting assistance via Barack Obama’s executive order shielding them from deportation, they are also getting help leaving Mexico…from Mexico.

On Thursday, the Mexican government began issuing birth certificates to its citizens at its 50 consulates in the United States —- a move that is a shocking affront to the sovereignty of the United States.

This brazen Mexican government action eases the way for illegals to obtain U.S. work permits, driver’s licenses, rent housing, enroll their children in schools and receive protection from deportation as they facilitate their lives here. Previously, Mexico required its citizens to get birth certificates at government offices in Mexico.

As House Republicans voted to defund appropriations (roll call vote under link) to the Department of Homeland Security in an effort to revoke Obama’s plan to allow millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. evade deportation, Mexico eases their path to leave. Facilitating their stay in the U.S. enables Mexican nationals to continue sending money, called remittances, across the border.

Remittances are a tax-free and massive transfer of wealth out of the United States. In 2013, an estimated $61 billion in remittances disappeared from our economy via the institutionalized money transfer industry, not only to Mexico, but throughout Latin America, where it remains a vital source of revenue. Mexico accounted for $22 billion, which according to the World Bank is in fourth place behind India, China and the Philippines in a global ranking for remittances according to this October 2013 report.

Now it appears Obama and Mexico have friends in both the U.S. House and Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed to maintain funding for the Department of Homeland Security, and is looking to pass a “clean funding bill” without any language restricting the administration’s actions on immigration.

Are Americans being treated to Oscar-worthy theatrics on the D.C. stage?


Illegal alien lunacy thrives with leftists on both coasts

January 14, 2015

In his first State of the City address, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Monday said, “To all of my fellow New Yorkers who are undocumented, I say: New York City is your home, too, and we will not force any of our residents to live their lives in the shadows.”

The radical left-winger said providing the estimated half-million illegal aliens living in New York City identification cards allows them to feel like citizens and enjoy some of the same benefits as actual citizens. “We don’t want any of our fellow New Yorkers to feel like second-class citizens,” Comrade Mayor de Blasio declared. “We don’t want them to feel left out.” 

The Left Coast is equally brain-dead on the subject of protecting American citizens by providing secure borders. Diminishing the importance of U.S. citizenship is the new standard. 

Sharing a stage with loopy Democrat California Gov. Jerry Brown in Los Angeles in August, brassy Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto called on other states to “evolve” like California so the United States can be more like his home country. Pena Nieto called for amnesty legislation and open borders while criticizing governors who have taken strong positions against illegal immigration. He referred to California, by saying “This is the other Mexico.” 

In return, Jerry Brown cheered, “You’re All Welcome in California!” Although California is operating under a nearly $9 billion cash deficit, Brown proposed a record $106.8 billion budget. The California State Teachers’ Retirement System debt alone is accruing at $22 million per day. Yet the gravy train continues. According to CBS News, California citizens paid out $650 million in welfare benefits to illegals in 2013. The actual amounts are vastly higher, ultimately exceeding $1.6 billion dollars a year, as the final paragraph in the news report acknowledges.

Murder in Paris: Multiculturalism, fanned by lack of assimilation, fails

January 8, 2015

Paris, known as “The City of Light” for its leading role during the Age of Enlightenment, is darkened in sorrow after a bloody massacre Wednesday, intended to stifle freedom of the press.

The terrorist attack took the lives of twelve after satirical publication Charlie Hebdo fomented Islamic ire for its caricature of Muhammad —- although other religions and various political figures have been the target of the weekly magazine’s jibes.

Eight journalists, two police officers, a maintenance worker and a visitor to the office were killed. Eleven others are reportedly wounded — four of them seriously.

A massive manhunt has been underway for the trio of French nationals, including two brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi ages 34 and 32. Another man, 18, has surrendered. The brothers had previously been tried on terrorism charges. Cherif was part of an Iraqi jihadi network dismantled in a nearby Paris neighborhood. He was sentenced to just three years in prison with 18 months oddly suspended in relation to terror charges in May 2008.

As they entered the offices to commit the atrocities, the masked and heavily armed murderers shouted, “Allahu Akhbar,” a phrase with which the civilized world has become all too familiar.

The UK’s Telegraph reports France’s stand against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria —- ISIS, called a JV team by Barack Obama —-  its bans on wearing a full-face veil in public and headscarf in state schools have made it a prime target for Islamist terrorists. It has western Europe’s largest Muslim population, estimated at approximately six million. At least 1,000 French nationals are believed to be involved in jihad in Syria, Iraq and on home soil.

Most disturbing is the information contained in this Washington Times report, detailing how Parisian officials have increasingly ceded control of heavily Muslim neighborhoods to Islamists, block by block. Large segments of this population have not assimilated and some talk openly of eventually controlling the country, replacing Western legal systems with Sharia law.

“The situation is out of control, and it is not reversible,” said Soeren Kern, an analyst at the Gatestone Institute and author of annual reports on the “Islamization of France.” 

“Islam is a permanent part of France now. It is not going away,” he said. “I think the future looks very bleak. The problem is a lot of these younger-generation Muslims are not integrating into French society. Although they are French citizens, they don’t really have a future in French society.

Let this be a lesson. A massive influx of cheap labor coming from impoverished countries can appear attractive to the business community.  But the cultural divide carries a steep price and one we ultimately can’t afford to pay.


In Obamaspeak: a “good heart” = bowing to invaders

December 10, 2014

Addressing a town-hall meeting of illegals and their supporters in Nashville on Tuesday, Barack Obama boasted that his successor won’t take on what he considers the political risk that reversing his recent executive amnesty action would entail.

“It’s true a future administration might try to reverse some of our policies. But I’ll be honest with you -— the American people basically have a good heart and want to treat people fairly. So any future administration that tried to punish people for doing the right thing, I think, would not have the support of the American people,” Obama claimed. “It’s true, theoretically, a future administration could do something that I think would be very damaging. It’s not likely, politically, that they reverse everything we’ve done.”

Yet even his unconstitutional executive amnesty order normalizing at least five million foreign nationals who showed contempt for our laws and sovereignty is not enough to pacify the illegals. The Tennessean newspaper reports two people balanced on a big commercial trash can full of old tires, holding a fabric sign proclaiming in Spanish, “FALTAN 7 MILLONES,” which translates to 7 million left out.

The report describes one high school student, whose father came to the U.S. as a “migrant.” She was among the invited guests selected to hear Obama’s speech, and described her excitement at being handed the microphone to ask a question. Obama told her voting was a key way to make an impact on issues of higher education and immigration.

“I absolutely think that’s the case,” she agreed.

As far as committed leftist Obama is concerned, that’s actually what it’s all about.

Like an adolescent experiencing a first mad crush, the newspaper giddily gushes over Obama’s return trip to Nashville. Reporter Frank Daniels, III, could get a dose of reality by visiting the border state of Arizona, to gauge the actual costs associated with the realities of illegal immigration. Taxpayer funded benefits including education, medical care, nutritional handouts and the staggering costs related to the criminal justice system might cause him to rethink his genial glee. The green rolling farmlands of Tennessee are a far cry from Arizona’s desert abutting a foreign country that encourages its own citizens to illegally enter, as they drain public resources, spike our crime rate and take our jobs in a still tough economy.

Daniels might begin with considering the impact of sending remittances totaling $21.6 billion back to Mexico —- in 2013 alone —- to bolster its economy. Arizona’s porous border is also a portal for any and all comers, including OTM’s (Law enforcement term for ‘Other Than Mexicans‘) many, including radicalized Muslims, intending to bring harm to our nation.

Our “good heart” has been pushed to its limit.
