Before anyone believes the mainstream media and their agenda to promote and protect progressive socialist democrats, perhaps they should be held accountable for not being more forthcoming on the 9/11 anniversary attack on Benghazi and why the President and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats put forth a demonstrably false narrative about a protest in response to a video when they knew the truth from real-time sources communicating with the White House Situation room.
The most fundamental questions relating to Benghazi remain hidden behind a comprehensive White House cover-up of the on-ground happenings.
- Where was the President of the United States during a terrorist attack on an American diplomatic facility?
- Did Valerie Jarrett, with no diplomatic, military, or foreign relations experience, substitute her judgement for that of the President of the United States?
- Who issued the commands for military assets to “stand down” and not come to the aid of stricken Americans?
- Why were wounded members of the government hidden from the United States Congress and asked to sign non-disclosure agreements?
Listen to Congressman Trey Gowdy as he asks other questions …
Bottom line …
Why would the media and/or any American citizen accept Hillary Clinton as the 2016 Presidential Candidate when she has been proven to be a corrupt liar pushing a socialist agenda? Perhaps having a vagina is as important as being black in the political calculus of the progressive socialist democrats.
Why would anyone listen to the mainstream media when they have demonstrably failed the American people as those who speak truth to power?
We need to throw the progressive socialist democrats out of office as they no longer represent America and Americans and appear incapable of protecting Americans, both in foreign and domestic public policies.
Already President Obama’s actions have marked him as being impeachable for violating his oath of office (perjury), apparent involvement in attempts to obstruct justice by falsely claiming “executive privilege,” and various violations of the United States Constitution.
So why am I not surprised when his surrogates are trying to spin President Obama’s temporary amnesty program – which is in clear violation of existing United States laws and a usurpation of Congressional law-making powers – by claiming that President Obama is not the one committing the crime?
- White House Director of Domestic Policy, Cecilia Muñoz, a radical socialist who worked as the Vice President for the Office of Research, Advocacy and Legislation at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) which disclaims the La Raza motto of “Por La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada” ["For the Race, everything, outside the Race, nothing"] …
Muñoz, however, downplayed Obama’s role in the amnesty. “The president doesn’t have the authority to suspend deportations. … That was a action by the Department of Homeland Security, and it was a use of its enforcement authority,” she claimed. <Source>
- Vice President Joe Biden, gaffe-prone Obama apologist …
Vice President Joe Biden was part of the video conference, and he also played down Obama’s role: “It is not the president saying, ‘I’m changing the law, you can stay.’” “He doesn’t have the authority to say that,” Biden said. <Source>
If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it probably is a duck …
Obama will extend amnesty for young illegals, says top White House aide
President Obama will extend his mini-amnesty for young illegals, said Cecilia Muñoz, White House director of domestic policy.
“As long as this president” is in power, “you will be able to renew your deferred action,” Muñoz told one questioner during an online question-and-answer session on immigration conducted via Skype.
So far, Obama’s deputies have granted the two-year “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” amnesty to at least 567,563 illegals, giving them the right to get jobs in every state, get drivers’ licenses in some states, to enroll in school and to receive government aid. Only 21,162 illegals have been rejected. Roughly 11 million illegals are living in the United States.
Obama’s two-year amnesty will start timing out in 2014, shortly before the midterm elections.
Munoz’s promise of another mini-amnesty may torpedo the White House’s closed-door to push the House leadership to pass a very ambitious business-backed immigration bill, similar to the bill passed by the Senate in June.
You cannot trust President Obama or his cadre of progressive socialist democrats …
Numerous GOP legislators already say they can’t strike an immigration bargain with Obama because they don’t trust him to enforce curbs on immigration. Also, polls show swing-voters strongly oppose provisions to boost the inflow of foreign workers.
Obama granted the mini-amnesty even though Congress voted down similar proposals. Roughly 20 million Americans are underemployed or unemployed. Wages have been stalled for several years, and many Americans are forced to take low-skill, low-wage jobs.
At a time when legal Americans, blacks and young people are losing entry-level jobs to illegal aliens, President Obama wants to exacerbate the problem by making their employment legal …
Up to 1.9 million illegal immigrants could be given work permits under Obama’s policy, according to an August 2013 report by the Migration Policy Institute.
Is the White House spinning the story of President Obama’s handshake with Raul Castro?
Considering that much of President Obama’s Hollywood fundraising base openly regards murderous thugs like Fidel Castro and Che Guevara as socialist heroes and great leaders, it should come as no surprise that President Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats would have the same mindset and worldview. With the recent actions of President Obama to disrespect our friends and “dialogue” with our enemies, one can easily believe that it was the President’s desire to seek some form of normalized relations with Cuba. First, to validate his empty Nobel Prize that was awarded without any form of achievement whatsoever. And, second, to burnish his credentials as a nominee for becoming the Secretary General of the United Nations, a corrupt international body that regularly disrespects the United States and fetes dictators, monarchs and Muslims.
Photo opportunities on the world stage are carefully pre-arranged and the handshake was no accidental encounter between a United States President and just another well-wisher …
Raul Castro Reaches Out to Obama, But Don’t Call It a Thaw
Tuesday’s greeting between Obama and Castro comes after six months of quiet diplomacy between the United States and Cuba—and Castro signaling he’s ready for bigger talks.
Since the Cuban revolution, the island’s ties with the United States have been marred by espionage, near war, sabotage, and deep distrust. But since President Obama came to office in 2009, Cuban leader Raul Castro has signaled that he is interested in a new relationship, according to current and former U.S. officials.
Earlier this year, Castro agreed to host peace talks between Colombia and the FARC, a Marxist rebel group that until recently Cuba and its most important ally, Venezuela, had supported. Last week, Obama praised the Cuban-brokered talks during a state visit with Colombia’s president, Juan Manuel Santos.
The case could be made that Cuba was and is a state sponsor of terrorism throughout Latin America.
Meanwhile, behind the scenes, U.S. and Cuban officials have held midlevel discussions in Havana and Washington on a range of issues, including direct postal service, migration issues, disaster response, and search and rescue at sea.
“The Cubans regularly say to people that they are ready for a different relationship,” said Dan Restrepo, who served as head of Latin America policy at the National Security Council during Obama’s first term.
Of course the Cubans are ready for a different relationship. One that relaxes trade sanctions and brings a flow of American dollars – and humanitarian support – into Cuba. Possibly to shore up a declining Marxist government dictatorship that sees its aging leaders dying off in the near future. Or to forestall another revolution when the Cuban people realize that their interests would be better served by allying with the superpower located 90 miles off its coast instead of taking socialist and communist handouts. I have a number of Cuban friends and they are a warm and friendly people – many of the older Cubans wishing to return to their beloved homeland under a banner of freedom.
Under what conditions does an American citizen maintain connections with a foreign enemy government?
Restrepo said the intermediaries who have delivered Castro’s messages are often U.S. citizens with connections to the Cuban government.
After watching Barack Obama disgrace the US presidency even further with his nutty ‘Selfie’ during the memorial service for Nelson Mandela, true American patriots are owed an answer.
Namely, how much more humiliation and embarrassment can this self-absorbed, spoiled brat dump on we the people and our blessed nation?
Is there no bottom to the Obama madness and his destructive reign of ruin?
Have we not suffered enough, what with the colossal failure known as ObamaCare and its potential to disrupt 17 percent of the national economy, the muddled and incoherent foreign policy which treats long-time allies as foes while favoring terrorist states, the dismantling of the American dream in order to placate the less capable and less diligent at the expense of the bright and successful, and the wanton destruction of American values and traditions in order to serve wrong-minded multiculturalism?
Lest we who lean to the Right get too full of ourselves, let us remember that while Obama was acting the fool in Johannesburg, leaders of the GOP were working overtime on the Hill to take the “Grand” out of the Grand Old Party by announcing a budget “deal” which scuttles, at least in part, the sequesters, the only tool which has been even remotely effective in cutting insane spending.
House and Senate negotiators unveiled an $85 billion agreement late Tuesday to fund federal agencies through the fall of 2015, averting another government shutdown and ending the cycle of crisis that has paralyzed Washington for much of the past three years.
In a rare display of bipartisan cooperation, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) stood side by side in the Capitol with Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) to announce the deal, which would cancel half of the sharp spending cuts known as the sequester for the current fiscal year.
Ryan called the agreement “a step in the right direction” that protects the Pentagon from fresh cuts set to hit in January while trimming deficits by more than $20 billion over the next decade.”
20 billion out of 17 trillion over ten years is a step in the right direction?
Baloney, Paul Ryan!
If President Obama’s handshake with Cuban dictator Raul Castro is news, Castro’s featured presence at the Nelson Mandela memorial service and what the South African government said about him are equally newsworthy. South Africa was described as “joined at the hip” to Cuba and in its debt for “liberation.”
Yet, this part of the memorial service has been carefully edited out of most of the “mainstream media” coverage of the event.
The service was organized and orchestrated by officers of the African National Congress (ANC), the ruling party of South Africa which operates as a front for the South African Communist Party. Baleka Mbete, ANC chairperson, introduced Raul Castro’s speech by saying, “Comrades, we will now get an address from a tiny island—an island of people who liberated us, who fought for our liberation in Cuito Cuanavale—the people of Cuba.”
Cuito Cuanavale refers to the foreign intervention of thousands of Cuban military troops on behalf of communist Angolan government forces in Africa under the guidance of Soviet military officers during 1987 and 1988. This was a critical time when communist forces backed by the Soviet Union, Cuba and China were determined to crush the non-communist pro-freedom movement UNITA (The National Union for the Total Independence of Angola).
As part of his effort to turn the tide against communism in Africa and elsewhere, the “Reagan Doctrine,” President Ronald Reagan strongly supported UNITA and its leader, Jonas Savimbi.
In the end, the communists solidified control of Angola, assassinated Savimbi (shot 15 times, twice to the head and once to the throat), and then took over Namibia and South Africa as the white population—fearing extinction in the face of the onslaught—made deals with the communists.
Mandela, in commemorating the 20th anniversary of the battle in 2008, referred to it as “a turning point for the liberation of our continent and my people.” This helps explain why the Cuban regime is held in such high regard by the South African government. The ANC and SWAPO (the South West Africa People’s Organization) communists in Namibia greatly benefitted from the Cuban imperialistic intervention. Of course, Mandela’s communist movement also enjoyed the support of Libya and the PLO.
After Raul Castro’s speech, during which he highlighted Mandela’s visit to Cuba to meet with and thank Fidel Castro, ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa said, “Thank you President Castro. We thank you for all the support and help that we continue to get from the people of Cuba during our years of struggle, and our countries continue to be joined at the hip in the areas of development…”
AIM noted in our column about current South African President Jacob Zuma that he traveled to Cuba in 2010 to receive the top Communist award from Raul Castro himself. Zuma also told a meeting of young communists in South Africa, “Work begins today in earnest to improve the quality of life of all our people and to build Cuban-style patriotism and internationalism within our ranks.”
Of the 6 “foreign dignitaries” listed on the official Mandela memorial service program as giving a tribute to Mandela, five are known Marxists: Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff (a former terrorist herself); Chinese Vice President Li Yuanchao; Namibian President Hifikepunye Pohamba; Cuba’s Raul Castro; and of course President Obama.
Loretta Fuddy, director of the Hawaii Department of Health, reportedly died due to injuries she received in the crash of a small commuter plane shortly before 4:00 p.m. local time Wednesday. Confirmation of her death occurred at approximately 8:00 p.m. local time (1:00 a.m. Eastern time on Thursday, December 12, 2013).
According to initial news reports, Fuddy was one of eight other people — including the pilot — in the plane and the only person to succumb to her injuries. Based on reports from EMS sources, three survivors were taken to Oahu, three to Molokai General Hospital and two members of the plane’s party declined treatment. The plane crash occurred about a half-mile off shore of the north shore of Molokai, shortly after taking off from Kalaupapa, Emergency officials responding to the crash site reported seeing eight people floating in the water wearing life vests.
Fuddy was at the center of controversy in the birth certificate controversy as she was the person who reportedly granted “an exception” to Barack Obama, allegedly witnessing the copying of Obama’s birth certificate and attested to its authenticity. Her involvement in the alleged fraudulent activity pertaining to the long form birth certificate of Barack Hussein Obama, was the discussion of The Hagmann & Hagmann Report , along with numerous others, as detailed in this report.
Obama’s Cash for Universal Preschool Clunker Plan
by Michelle Malkin
It’s elementary: When Democrats find themselves in political trouble, they reach for your wallets. After squandering billions on an ineffectual stimulus, failed green energy boondoggles and the disastrous Unaffordable Care Act, the Obama White House wants to dump $75 billion more into “free” preschool for all. That’ll solve everything.
Government-funded universal pre-K is a moldy oldie of the progressive left, recycled perennially by Democratic presidential speechwriters in need of State of the Union address padding. But this time, the Fed Ed crowd is redoubling its efforts with support from big-business statists and academic shills.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, once a bitter campaign target of the White House, is now Team Obama’s biggest cheerleader on expanding preschool funding. And Austan Goolsbee, a former top Obama economic adviser and University of Chicago prof, took to the pages of The Wall Street Journal this week to crusade for more public “investments” in early childhood education. At “$10,000 per child,” Goolsbee argued, universal pre-K is a “bargain.”
Why anyone would take the financial advice of Austan Goolsbee is beyond me. I’ll remind you that this is the same Austan Goolsbee who vigorously championed extending credit to the uncreditworthy. In a 2007 op-ed for The New York Times, he derided prescient critics who called subprime mortgages “irresponsible.” Goolsbee instead preferred to describe the doomed financial instruments as “innovations in the mortgage market” to expand the pool of homebuyers. We don’t need economics Ph.D.’s to see how that worked out.
Goolsbee, like his Fed Ed allies on both the left and right, cites the well-worn Perry Preschool Project in Michigan to support Obama’s top-down push for subsidizing preschool for all. But that pilot program, run at a cost of $19,000 per child, took place more than a half-century ago. A more comprehensive and updated review of the literature by the Brookings Institution’s Russ Whitehurst released last month found that the vaunted academic benefits of full-time pre-K are, in fact, negligible.
Whitehurst is a developmental psychologist by training who has spent the majority of his career designing and evaluating programs intended to enhance the cognitive development of young children. He warns that universal preschool boosters “ignore research showing negative impacts on children who receive child care supported through the federal child development block grant program.” Moreover, his research shows, the Nanny Staters have downplayed evidence that “the universal pre-k programs in Georgia and Oklahoma, which are closest to what the Obama administration has proposed, have had, at best, only small impacts on later academic achievement.”
A. Barton Hinkle of the Richmond Times-Dispatch points to even more reason for skepticism by way of a 2010 Department of Health and Human Services report about a congressionally mandated study of approximately 5,000 3- and 4-year-olds who were randomly assigned to either a control group or a group that had access to the federal Head Start program. It found that “at the end of kindergarten and first grade … the Head Start children and the control group children were at the same level on many of the measures studied.”
Let’s set all of this junk science aside for the moment. There’s a bigger elephant in the room.
A criminal alien leader of an international organized crime group will be locked up for the rest of his life according to a federal judge in a New York City suburb on Monday.
The 26-year-old head of the Coronados clique of La Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) street gang, Heriberto Martinez, also known as “Boxer,” was sentenced to life in prison in a Nassau County, N.Y., federal courtroom on Monday for crimes that included shooting a mother and her toddler.
Martinez and a co-defendant, MS-13 member Carlos Ortega, also known as “Silencio,” were convicted on March 21, 2013, following a six-week trial, on all 21 counts of the indictment, including racketeering, racketeering conspiracy, murder, assault with deadly weapons, and related firearms and conspiracy charges, according to the FBI.
Ortega, 28, was sentenced to life in prison on Nov. 21, 2013, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
“Heriberto Martinez placed less value on human lives than he did on enforcing the barbaric rules of the MS-13 and, as a leader of the MS-13, making sure other gang members were doing the same. In keeping with those twisted rules, during a six-week period in early 2010, Martinez authorized the execution of a young mother, whom he believed had disrespected the gang, ordered the execution of a [private security] officer for doing his job, and he [executed] a fellow MS-13 member who refused to commit senseless, violent crimes,” stated U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch.
“The jury’s verdict earlier this year and today’s sentence demonstrate that the brutal and senseless violence committed by Martinez and his fellow MS-13 members will not be tolerated and will be prosecuted tenaciously,” said Lynch.
Among Martinez’s numerous felonies, he was convicted with the execution-style murder of 23-year-old Nestor Moreno, a security officer employed at El Rancho Bar and Grill in Hempstead, N.Y., on March 6, 2010.
In late February 2010, Martinez and several of his MS-13 underlings were involved in a dispute with El Rancho staff members over an unpaid bar tab. The dispute escalated into a physical altercation during which Martinez was pepper sprayed by the guard. before exiting El Rancho, Martinez identified himself as an MS-13 member to the victim and told him, “It’s not going to end like this.”
On March 6, 2010, Martinez, along with four co-conspirators, returned to El Rancho and carried out that threat, shooting Moreno in the head at point-blank range. The gun used to kill Moreno was the same semi-automatic handgun used to kill a mother and her toddler one month earlier.
MS-13 is a violent international street gang comprised primarily of immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. With numerous branches, or “cliques,” the MS-13 is the largest street gang on New York’s Long Island.
