Obama signals he’s ‘pulling a fast one’ on Americans for illegal aliens

by on September 13th, 2014

Presidents Barack Obama and his minions, such as Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, are all but out-and-out telling American voters that they are preparing to “pull a fast one” on the nation by waiting until after election day to implement Obama’s immigration plan by fiat, according to a number of critics in law enforcement and immigration reform organizations. Obama’s White House chief of staff promised Latino congressmen in a closed meeting on Thursday that Obama will act on his own by the end 2014.

President Obama spent the week assuring immigration activists and illegal aliens that he still plans to fundamentally change the immigration system and go as far as he can under the law as he understands the law. “That means Obama is going to do what he pleases, U.S. Constitution be damned,” warns former police officer and public safety director Jan Kirby.

“This administration treats the Constitution as if it were a license to do whatever they feel is good for the country even if a majority of Americans oppose their actions to give upwards of 11 million lawbreakers a very Merry Christmas this year,” said Kirby.

White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough allegedly told members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that they shouldn’t blame Obama since the request to “hold off” on his immigration plan by fiat is a result of squawking by Senate Democrats who may lose their seat if they go along with Obama’s illegal alien giveaway.

After the meeting with Latino lawmakers, McDonough briefed reporters saying, “It was good to catch up with the caucus and underscore to them our continuing commitment to resolve the challenges with our broken immigration system and underscore to them that the president will act on this before the end of the year.”

Law enforcement and immigration reform officials see this as the Democrats telegraphing that once they are safely ensconced in office, they will push for amnesty for their future voting block, according to several police officials such as Iris Aquino, a Hispanic police officer. “We spend billions of dollars on border security and immigration enforcement and for what? Border security is an illusion and immigration enforcement is a game of Russian Roulette without the bullet,” she quipped.

After the meeting, Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Illinois, visibly angry, said, “No more excuses. I don’t care what senator is dangling in the wind, I don’t care what Republican proposal is being put forward, I don’t care what happens, we are moving forward. The holiday season must be a season of blessings for millions of undocumented families across America.”

Gutierrez is the congressman who called Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents the “Gestapo,” and regularly denigrates Border Patrol agents, according to a 2011 Examiner news story. “He is more interested in the welfare of lawbreaking illegal aliens than the American citizens who are losing their childrens’ inheritance,” said Jan Kirby. “The fact is Obama and the left-wing of his party want to pull a fast one on voters.

Breaking: British hostage beheaded by ISIS terrorists in video

by on September 13th, 2014

Islamic State of Iraq and Syria released another disturbing video on the Internet Saturday evening they stated “showcases” the beheading of British national David Haines, an aid worker who volunteered to help victims of the terrorist conflict

In the video created by ISIS, a masked Islamist with a British-sounding accent addresses the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister David Cameron, before appearing to brutally slice David Haines’s head off of his body. The 44-year-old Scottish citizen had been abducted in 2013 while working for a French agency NGO (non-governmental agency). Earlier on Saturday, Haines’ family begged the captors of the father of two to make contact and discuss the death threat..

The video, which is just as disturbing as the beheadings of the two American journalists — James Foley and Steven Sotloft — shows Haines kneeling in the sand wearing an orange jumpsuit, just as Foley and Sotloft did. The terrorist threatens Britain for helping to arm Kurdish forces in Iraq who are battling the Islamic State.

Meanwhile in the African nation of Uganda, police reported that they uncovered a terrorist plot by Somalia’s al-Qaida ally Al Shabaab to attack the United States Embassy in Kampala.

The U.S. embassy staff had warned U.S. citizens earlier on Saturday to stay in their homes while police conduct a counterterrorism dragnet in search of the suspected terrorist cell. Ugandan police say they have already made several arrests.

You know that regulations have gone too far when the FDA has to regulate wheelchairs

by on September 13th, 2014

This young man has helped design a computerized wheelchair that allows users to better control how the wheelchair operates.  It sound like a great idea.  But in listening to this piece at the WSJ I was surprised that the FDA had to approve the wheelchair before it could be produced.  Is the FDA soon going to regulate any type of chair that the disabled might sit in?  What happens if someone with disabilities sits in an unapproved chair?  Will the FDA SWAT team descend on the house?

New York City radio DJ blasts Obama and Holder over homegrown jihadists

by on September 12th, 2014

A top New York City comedian and radio disk jockey, in a departure from his usual light-hearted show, blasted President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric for their total lack of attention to the June 2014 murder of a 19-year-old Livingston, New Jersey, college student by a perpetrator who admitted he was an Islamic jihadist. Todd Pettengill, host of WPLJ’s “The Todd Show”, called the killing “evidence that domestic terrorism is already here,” according to Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered” on Friday.

During the FNC segment, Pettengill is heard discussing the murder of Brendan Tevlin for more than eight minutes, saying that the killing by a self-proclaimed Muslim terrorist begs the question: why the terrorist incident never received more attention even after the alleged murderer confessed that he killed Tevlin, as well as other victims on the West Coast, as retaliation for U.S. military actions in the Middle East.

Pettengil strongly criticized President Obama and Attorney General Holder for not mentioning the case in recent speeches and while at the same time downplaying the threat posed by radical Islamists currently living in the United States. “It was in fact an act of jihad, perpetrated by a fellow American who sympathized more with those who want to annihilate us than with his own country and its people,” Pettengill said during his radio show.

“If there was ever a reason to riot in the streets in the name of humanity it would for this case. But has that happened? No. And I’m not suggesting that it should,” he told his show’s listeners.

According to an Aug. 21, 2014, Examiner news story (one of the few written about the federal terrorism case involving Devlin):

The suspect, Ali Muhammad Brown, allegedly told investigators and the prosecutor is that his actions were justified and that he was retaliating for the deaths of his brother jihadists at the hands of U.S. soldiers and law enforcement agents, according to a police detective, Morris Hempner, who is following the terrorism case. Brown is also a registered sex offender.

The 29-year-old American-born suspect was charged at his arraignment on Wednesday with first-degree murder by the King County, Washington, Prosecutor’s Office for the the shooting death of 30-year-old Leroy Henderson on April 27, 2014. Police said Henderson was shot with a 9mm semiautomatic handgun 10 times in the back as he was walking towards his home.

The self-styled jihadist was charged earlier with first-degree murder for shooting and killing Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young in Seattle on June 1, 2014. In addition, Ali Muhammad Brown is suspected of killing a 19-year-old college student, Brendan Tevlin, in Newark, New Jersey, on June 25, after Brown traveled from Seattle to New Jersey to evade a police arrest warrant. All four victims were allegedly killed by multiple gunshots from the same 9mm handgun.

Two years after Benghazi massacre Obama administration faces more lawsuits

by on September 12th, 2014

On Wednesday, the same day that denizens of America’s newsrooms breathlessly awaited the speech by the Commander in Chief, President Barack Obama, and the day before the second-anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi terrorist attack, a Beltway watchdog group reported that it had filed three additional Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against both the Department of State and the Defense Department.

The goal of filing these lawsuits is have a federal judge order the Obama administration to provide government records, emails and reports regarding what occurred immediately before, during, and after the deadly Islamist attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans — including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens — mortally wounded.

Earlier this year Judicial Watch forced the Obama administration through a federal judge to release an email from Obama’s Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser Ben Rhodes. That email revealed that it was members of the White House staff who created what amounted to fraudulent talking points. Those talking points claimed that an Internet video blaspheming the Prophet Mohammad and the spontaneous demonstrations over that video were the reason for the Benghazi attack.

It was the revelation of that specific email, which the White House kept from members of Congress, that led to Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, to request and obtain House approval for a special Select Committee on Benghazi — under the leadership of former criminal prosecutor, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina — to probe all aspects of the Benghazi scandal.

Hillary Clinton’s extensive notes

During one of her televised interviews promoting yet another memoir, Obama’s former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton mentioned that she “took extensive notes during the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi. When she was asked if those notes would be given to the House’s Benghazi Select Committee, she cleverly responded, “They can read the book.” But Judicial Watch is now responding: “[Our] lawsuit could force Clinton to turn over all notes taken {before], during, and following the attack.”‘

“When I saw that interview, I was disgusted with Hillary [Clinton] and the entire Obama government. How easy to be flippant about an incident that killed four good men, one of whom she claimed was her friend. I feel sorry for Judicial Watch and anyone else seeking answers to Benghazi. They’re dealing with two of the most deceitful American politicians in recent history: Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama,” said political strategist and attorney Mike Baker.

In a shocking revelation, Judicial Watch has stated that, so far, it has filed 40 FOIA requests, a Mandatory Declassification Review, and seven lawsuits against the Obama administration relating to the Benghazi terrorist attack.

“Once again, we are going to court to force the Obama administration to come clean about the events surrounding the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission in Benghazi, Libya,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Hillary Clinton’s flippant refusal to make available the notes she took during the attack fits right in with the Obama administration’s pattern of obstruction. This administration, which promised to be the ‘most transparent in history’ has turned out to be one the most secretive.

Forget slavery: even too Uncle Tom for conservatives?

by on September 12th, 2014

Even a few white conservative radio hosts became uncomfortable and pushed back against my saying that slavery happened a ga-zillion years ago and it is time for black America to get over it. Apparently, they considered such a statement coming from a black person too Uncle Tom-ish for even them. Their retort is “Surely, you must admit that being African American in America is challenging.” When my reply is, “No, it is not.” their reply is, “Thanks for coming on the show Lloyd. And we’ll be right back.”

I am in my sixties and America has come a very long way since my youth. Mary, my beautiful awesome white wife of 38 years and I began dating over 40 years ago. We caught heck from both sides; severe push back from our families. We were chased in our car by a car load of angry white boys. On another occasion, we were waiting at a traffic light when a white man got out of his car, cursed at us and spat on our car. A white landlord revealed to me that her black maid advised her not to rent to us because any black man who dates a white woman is no good.

Then, there was the time at a family restaurant, a white man approached our table and smashed a beer bottle on my forehead and fled the restaurant. I was not severely injured and he was later apprehended. Back in those days, being black in America had its challenges.

Today, in terms of living a happy and fulfilled life; achieving one’s American dream, racism is not serious enough to block anyone. As a matter of fact, America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet. I am extremely grateful to God for blessing me to be born an American. Cut the victim crap and go for your dreams.

Is racism alive and well in America? Absolutely, on both sides. People have a variety of prejudices. Is racial prejudice in America prevalent enough to stop anyone from achieving? No.

The Bible says “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Wow, what a powerful truth, able to empower or destroy you. If you see yourself as a victim, you are. But, if you see yourself powerful and free, you are.

Can someone please explain to me how viewing themselves as victims of slavery empowers black Americans today? It does not, quite the opposite. Liberals love to lay the serious economic and moral problems devastating the black community at the feet of white America and America’s sin of slavery. This mindset weakens black America because it places their salvation in the hands of someone other than themselves; contingent on white behavior and intervention. Are we slaves on a national plantation waiting for our masters to better manage our lives?

Throughout American history there are countless inspiring tales of blacks using their will to succeed. Born in 1885, A’Lelia Walker was a black businesswoman. She was the first self made female millionaire in the United States and also one of the first black millionaires. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A%27Lelia_Walker

Imagine Miss Walker’s life had she obsessed about slavery and reparations.

My black college buddy Joe Ford was a wonderful role model; focus and determination. Joe had every excuse to fail.

Homegrown female jihadist pleads guilty to ISIS conspiracy

by on September 11th, 2014

A Colorado teenager on Wednesday evening — just hours before President Barack Obama’s speech on fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) — pleaded guilty to one count of providing material support to ISIS, according to Justice Department officials. Shannon Conley, a 19-year-old woman residing in Arvada, Colorado, pleaded guilty to just one count in the terrorism conspiracy with the understanding that she will lead federal law enforcement and intelligence officers to other homegrown radicalized Muslims.

According to the Justice Department, her primary goal was to assist ISIS terrorists in Syria. Law enforcement officers arrested Conley in April when she attempted to board an airliner at Denver International Airport on her way to Syria. She was charged by the FBI agents with attempting to aid a terrorist organization on both the State Department and Treasury Department terrorist organization lists.

On the condition that she will help U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agents she is only facing about five years in federal prison and pay a $250,000 fine.

Conley’s arrest and prosecution legitimizes the fears many Americans share regarding ISIS attacks on the homeland. The FBI and other law enforcement agencies claim they don’t have the exact number of Americans fighting alongside ISIS jihadists, but the United Nations says the number of foreign fighters from Western nations numbers about 12,000.

As part of the terrorism conspiracy, Conley signed-up as a U.S. Army Explorer to gain knowledge of military tactics and firearms prowess. She also confessed to obtaining nursing certification and National Rifle Association (NRA) certification.

Conley told agents from the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force that if she couldn’t fight with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also known as ISIL,) she hoped to use her nurse’s aide training to help “patch up” wounded terrorists, according to court documents. Conley told her interrogators that she had wanted to marry a Muslim man she met on the Internet, who she claims is a Tunisian national who fought for ISIS, a group that the U.S. is currently attacking. Law enforcement officers said they are “still investigating the suitor, identified in court documents only as Y.M.”

Islam is the Face of Evil

by on September 11th, 2014

By Alan Caruba

“ISIS is not Islamic”, said  Barack Obama as he gave yet another vapid speech to say what he will or will not do next about the threat of Islam. What he said is both idiotic and a lie. ISIS calls itself the Islamic State.

Obama used the word “war” only once, but ISIS is all about war—an Islamic holy war that has been waged since 632 AD.

The one person neither named, nor blamed is the so-called prophet, Mohammad, yet everything being done by the jihadists today is being done in his name.

In his memoir, “Dreams from my Father”, Obama, in the preface to its second edition, wrote: “Nor do I pretend to understand the stark nihilism that drove the terrorists that day (9/11) and that drives their brethren still. My powers of empathy, my ability to reach into another’s heart, cannot penetrate the blank stares of those who would murder innocents with abstract, serene satisfaction.” And therein is the problem that he, as President, and we as citizens must address.
Political correctness is so dominant in the Obama White House that no one in the U.S. government dares say anything that might be deemed critical of a so-called “religion” that sanctions beheadings, amputations, stoning, kidnapping hostages, ransoms, polygamy, and slavery. To anyone deemed an infidel or unbeliever or a Muslim who questions anything about Islam, death is the only option other than dhimmitude, a second-class citizenship.
The pure evil of Islam was seen most recently in the two videos of American hostages being beheaded by the Islamic State, but despite decades of attacks on U.S. embassies, the taking of U.S. hostages in Beirut and Tehran, attacks in Bali, Madrid and London, and the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and on the Pentagon, Americans have been slow to realize the intensity and size of the threat that the Middle Eastern and North African nations represent along with wherever else a large Muslim population exists.
As the U.S. and threatened Middle Eastern nations hurtle toward a military confrontation with the Islamic State, the name it has given to territory it has seized from northern Syria and into Iraq, a new book, Fault Lines: The Layman’s Guide to Understanding America’s Role in the Ever-Changing Middle East, ($00.00, Elevate, Boise, Idaho, softcover) provides one of the best, short histories on U.S. involvement and why, at this point, its influence has reached a low point.
Liebich writes of the way the U.S. policy regarding the Middle East changed over the years, particularly in the wake of World War II and the Cold War that followed as the Soviet Union challenged us for the implementation of communism worldwide. Dependent on the flow of oil from the Middle East, much of our strategic interest in the region was based on exercising our influence, often bringing about the removal of leaders whom we regarded as a threat to that necessity. After 9/11 that went into overdrive.
Liebich notes that our concept of nation-building proved costly, not just in the lives of our troops, but which included $50 billion in Iraq “and it didn’t work.

Divided We Stand

by on September 10th, 2014

Time brings distance to all events. No pain is as fresh twenty years later as on the day it happened. The shock of the impossible becomes the new normal and then it becomes more background noise.

“A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic,” Joseph Stalin said. The statisticians in Doha, Tehran and Riyadh know it quite well when they count up their numbers. Compound death is more than a statistic; it is incomprehensible.

The banal media coverage of September 11 grapples with a story too big to tell that can only be broken down into human fragments of personal stories.

This is true for most of the dark footprints of history. There is no story of the Holocaust, there are only countless personal stories of survivors and the procedural story of the Nazi killing machine. These perspectives never come together into a single story only human fragments and procedural details, the departments and mechanisms, how many milligrams of Zyklon B it takes per kilogram to kill a person and how many people can be loaded on a train in how much time.

The coverage of 9/11 breaks down into these same mini-stories, survivors describing how they escaped, the families of the dead relating how they reacted to the news, the stories of firefighters and officers, and the procedural questions, how long it takes a falling body to achieve terminal velocity and what happens to the human body when it breathes in enough ash and soot. On the other side are the killers who plotted and planned, checked flight schedules, got their boxcutters and their korans and killed thousands for Allah.

The story of the attacks cannot be told because there is no boundary to it. Where do we begin, with a handful of upper class Muslims in Hamburg? With a scion of the Bin Laden clan becoming a Ghazi or with Hassan Al-Banna finding inspiration in Third Reich propaganda to modernize Islamism? With the Gates of Vienna, the Shores of Tripoli or Mohammed in Mecca? All but the last are incomplete, and even the last leaves too much out.

When a murder happens we trace back the motives of the killer. Was he abused as a child, did the authorities fail to act in time, what made a once sweet boy turn into a killer? To do the same for September 11 is to travel back over a thousand years and still come away with few answers except that sometimes human evil can be congealed into an ideology and passed along from generation to generation like a virus of hatred and cruelty.

“Where were you when the planes hit,” attempts to orient us in time. But the question is only an attempt to make the impossible seem real. The businessman covered in ash and stumbling over the Brooklyn Bridge and the Seattle housewife waking up to see news coverage of it on television are more human fragments of a thing that is more than human. War.
