CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN?
I am a great (or infamous depending on one’s outlook) cross poster of blogs or online news sources. One of my favorite people to cross post is the blogger Danny Jeffrey (older but still active – Freedom Rings 1776 and Fix Bayonets). In fact I have enjoyed Danny’s perspective so much that I noticed I was cross posting a lot of his articles. So I have slowed down on doing this.
I am on the email list of Fix Bayonets and a post crossed my eyes that Danny was sharing his outlook on Benghazigate. You may or may not agree with Danny’s perspective but he is very hard to refute except perhaps conclusions based on opinion more than facts. In the blogging world facts are like math – they don’t lie. However unlike math facts can be massaged to slant toward one’s perspective. Too much massaging may lead to the danger of turning facts into mirages; i.e. something you want to see but really is not there.
Whatever your take on Benghazigate Danny Jeffrey is one of the best sources to build an information base. Enjoy the read.
BENGHAZI REVEAL PART ONE
By Danny Jeffrey
March 10, 2014 8:42 AM
Last year I wrote an essay about how little people really know about what is going on, due not to a lack of interest, but to the junk sites that from which they tend to get their information. I am about to prove it.
Benghazi is probably the most mentioned city in the world and has been for nearly the last two years. Everyone talks about, reads about it, posts about it and few know anything other than the fact that four men died there and it was due to Obama allowing them to die, for reasons of his own. Beyond those basics there is only confusion and conjecture. Still, in an effort to waken those who are trying to waken others I shall show you what real research can do and then hope you reconsider using some of the sources I provided in ‘Wake Up America‘.
In March of 2011 ‘Rebels’ were involved in an attempted overthrow of Qaddafi. I emphasized ‘Rebels’ because most were not rebels as such. The vast majority of these people were paid militias, and a great many of them were Al Qaeda. The powers that be behind the Obama regime thought it best if we helped to topple a dictator and hand his nation over to Islamic radicals. The simple fact of the matter is that Robert Gates and the Joint Chiefs of Staff were opposed to our becoming involved in a war in Libya, citing no national interest. Credit our intervention to three women who overruled the JCS; Samantha Power, Hillary Clinton, and Susan Rice.
At any rate we became involved, with John ‘Traitor’ McCain leading the cheering section and CIA spook Christopher Stevens helping to arm the forces of Al Qaeda. Stevens arrived in Benghazi in the middle of the night aboard a Greek freighter. He spent the night in a hotel and moved the next day due to a car bomb going off in the parking lot.
I love using links from Obama’s loyal media for when they concede something you know you have a live one on the line.
Stevens, whose diplomatic foothold were a couple of battered tables, was literally on the rebels’ side while the revolution was at its most vulnerable and in danger of being crushed by Gadhafi’s troops who were moving on the city. The threat was pushed back at the last minute by the intervention of NATO planes which began bombing Gadhafi’s tanks and troops.
At the risk of sounding disloyal I must ask; by what right and in whose interest did we do this? After Ronald Reagan had a bomb dropped in Qaddafi’s front yard that little warlord learned some manners and actually joined us in the war on terror after 911. Not wanting another crater in his yard he had been helping to expose and eliminate Al Qaeda. Then we turned on him, aiding Al Qaeda in his overthrow and murder. Paraphrasing Julius Caesar Hillary Clinton showed her true worth in this 12 second video as she said laughing “We Came. We Saw. He Died.” Qaddafi did not simply die. He was tortured and murdered. Raped with sharpened sticks at the hands of savages we empowered until he bled to death. And her victory chant tells me everything that I need to know about the woman that is being groomed for the Oval Office. Christopher Stevens was rewarded for his efforts by being appointed Ambassador to Libya and he returned there in May of 2012 assuming his new role. The following is a brief from the U.S. Department of State entitled ‘Securing Our Embassies Overseas’. It details the planning that goes into the safeguarding of our embassies abroad, its Ambassadors, support teams, and families. If this plan had been followed. Four Americans, now dead, would be alive today. The Obama regime intentionally disregarded all protocol and with malice aforethought allowed these men to be killed.

Following the bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) and Nairobi (Kenya) in 1998, security countermeasures for our U.S. missions overseas took on greater importance, and this continues today.
Recall this excerpt as I later present a timeline of events as they transpired, for the State Department was far more aware of the danger than was the Ambassador as they removed his safeguards.
Recall this excerpt as I later present a timeline of events as they transpired, for the State Department was far more aware of the danger than was the Ambassador as they removed his safeguards.
Another link from the State Department, this one describing the two types of mobile defense teams available to protect our ambassadors. One is referred to as a Security Support Team and their duties are described as:
A Security Support Team’s job is to augment and enhance security at U.S. Embassies and Consulates that are faced with civil unrest, hostile hosts or any other threat. Recent deployments included Yemen, Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Jamaica and Cote d’ Ivoire.
And the Tactical Support Team:
Tactical Support Teams deliver counter-assault capability in high-threat protective details both overseas and in the United States. Missions have included deployments to Niger, Zaire, Mauritania, Mali, Indonesia, the Philippines, Yemen, Pakistan, Tunisia and Jamaica.
One would tend to believe that with such support teams available an Ambassador should feel safe, but the fact of the matter is that the Security Support Team was removed and the Tactical Support Team was ordered to “Stand Down!” Such executive behavior rings not of leadership but of premeditation. There are a set of standards applied to any foreign mission site. Among them are three meter high walls topped with barbed wire. The building must be set back from those walls by a minimum of one hundred feet. That building must also be equipped with bullet proof glass, tactical doors, and a fire proof safe room. The site in Benghazi had none of the above and could only be operated under the terms of a special waiver from the State Department. Again, calling upon one of Obama’s lapdog’s…

Again, calling upon one of Obama’s lapdog’s…
By leaving the Consulate open for business with a waiver, it essentially meant that no barriers were required, no safe room was needed, and multiple layers of security weren’t necessary.
The State Dept’s waiver was mentioned in the Ambassador’s diary which was recovered by CNN on site as the FBI was weeks getting there. Then we have this video on the topic from CNN as well. Note that such a waiver on such a facility had to be signed off not only by the State Dept, and Libya, but the Ambassador as well. Why was the Ambassador willing to agree to an unprotected mission in the very pits of hell? More on that topic later. Recall the basic Security Support Team tasked with protecting the Ambassador. Calling yet again on the Obama loyal:

This from ABC…
I shall use no excerpt from this link as you should read all of it. It is by Jake Tapper, who pulls no punches.
U.S. Security personnel for the Ambassador were limited to three men and they were not allowed to carry weapons as we did not want to offend the ‘sensitivities’ of the Libyans. Their armed support was recruited from the February 17th Martyrs Brigade, but they were nowhere to be found on the night of September 11, 2012. F17MB has a Facebook page.
This from Newsmax…
Several entries on the militia’s Facebook page openly profess sympathy for Ansar al-Sharia, the hardline Islamist extremist group widely blamed for the deadly attack on the mission. The State Department did not respond to a Newsmax request for an explanation as to why the February 17th Martyrs Brigade was hired to protect the mission.

AN INTRODUCTION TO ‘FIX BAYONETS’
For the sake of long term readers, I must briefly explain my need for a new website:
I have an insurmountable problem with my previous blog that has to do with the ‘feed’. Everything about it works just fine with the exception of it not being able to send Emails to my followers whenever I post a new essay. I have learned what caused the cumulative problem but am still unable to repair it, and so today I turn a new page. Armed with a new knowledge of how to avoid future problems, I am relegating Freedom Rings 1776 to a background archive, totally accessible but no longer serving my needs.
There is also a second reason for what I have begun. My first website was named with a sense of optimism, while this one is from a sense of desperation, for we are most assuredly losing in the political arena. Since Obama was first chosen by the Progressive overlords, we have been subjected to betrayal, deceit, a loss of liberty, and … READ THE REST

President Barack Hussein Obama has lied to American voters before he was even elected to Office in 2008.
BHO lied about barely knowing Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn who were Communist terrorists in their younger days (and remarkably used the very American laws they railed against to get away with their violence via some Court technicality). Dear God in Heaven BHO had election/Community Organizing meetings in the Ayers/Dohrn living room.
BHO lied about his connection to Tony Rezko – who committed fraud and extortion. In 2003 BHO was at a farewell party for Rashid Khalidi – a promoter of then State Department designated terrorist organization PLO and friend of Yasser Arafat – delivering vitriolic hate-speech toward Israel. The proof of Obama’s Israel-hatred was recorded on a mysterious tape procured by the LA Times. The LA Times only released enough info from the tape during the 2008 Presidential campaign to remind BHO to be more favorable toward Palestinians. The LA Times has steadfastly refused to make the entire tape available to the public. Why? It would prove Obama is a liar about public statements his Administration is a friend of Israel.
Father Michael Pfleger is in the same mold as Jeremiah Wright except he is a Roman Catholic White man. Pfleger’s Chicago parish is mostly Black and rather than show the nature of Christ or even the official line of the Roman Catholic Church Pfleger has embraced the same White-hatred Left Wing ideology of the Black Liberation Movement as has the racist Reverend Wright. Prior to Obama’s 2008 election Pfleger publically stated he had known Obama for over 20 years. Pfleger is one of a number of Chicago religious leaders (Protestant – Wright, Islam – Farrakhan and Catholic – Pfleger) that cooperated with then State Senator Obama to use racial profiling that Illinois law enforcement picked on Black people for the reason of a higher rate of Black incarceration.
As a young man Barack Obama had a great affinity to the man known as the founder and/or godfather of Critical Racial Theory (CRT) in Derrick Bell. The simple explanation of CRT is that Whites are permanent oppressors and Blacks are permanently oppressed – err unless changes occur in society. Bell himself proclaims that CRT is highly influenced by Marxist ideology – rich Capitalists vs. oppressed proletariat-worker class. Obama’s ideological affection for race baiting Marxist Bell is evidenced by the young Obama introduction of Bell at a Left Wing protest while Obama was at Harvard:
The Left Stream Media (aka MSM) had gone to great lengths to brandish Obama’s connection to Bell as a non-starter; however BHO’s past radical associations’ show the Bell-connection is more of additional info of the current President hatred of America as it is under the U.S. Constitution.
Marshall Davis a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA was a mentor of the young Obama thus shaping our current President’s world view. Respected Conservative journalist Trevor Louden excerpts an American Spectator article showing Obama’s most trusted advisors David Axelrod (Left Obama’s Administration just before 2012 election) and Valerie Jarrett ALSO had a close connection to the Davis-Communist admiration society. Louden speculates at the end of his post, “Manchurian Candidate, anyone?”
Undoubtedly this is not an exhaustive look at the picture that President Barack Hussein Obama is a lying deceiver to American voters due to the building up his anti-American and anti-Jewish world view.
To drive the point home that Obama is a calculated liar to fool voters is this page that has linked documentation of the President’s lies from campaign promises for 2008 through his fifth year in Office:
Also you can check out title from InvestmentWatch Blog dated September 17, 2013:
This list is huge and I make sure to post the date Obama’s lies, scandals and crimes seems to grow longer and longer each month. Which begs the question: When will the Left oriented MSM finally admit their transform America Leftist utopian President is more about destroying the foundations of America rather than preserving the American way of life that makes America good?
Now Leftists and Conservatives alike (if they made down this far) are probably wondering, “Why should I care about this rehash of facts – head buried in the sand if you are an American Leftist and ‘forget about it’ Conservatives who look to the next two election cycles to reverse the curse of Obamunism (or the blessing of Obama transformation for the Left)?”
Here is why – and I am really just picking one reason for my train of thought: Americans on the Left and the Right still support the right for Israel’s existence apart from the Muslim Jew-hatred ingrained into Islamic society via their holy writings and journalistic commentaries. The one difference between Left Wing and Right Wing Americans is the path to maintain Israel’s existence. The Left has fallen for the ‘Land for Peace’ idiocy. Center-Right Paleoconservatives and Establishment Republicans have also fallen for the idiocy of ‘Land for Peace,’ but perhaps not quite as much land as the Left believes their fallacy would solve. Then there are the Conservatives and the Christian Zionists (yep, I’m one of those) that either see that ‘Land for Peace’ is an equation that will lead to Israel’s demise and probable the next genocidal Holocaust of Jews or we Christian Zionists concurring but adding that the Land of Israel is a God-given paradigm right out of the Word of God. Regardless of the perceived viable path to preserve Israel’s existence the Left (for the most part) and the Right agree Israel’s right to exist should be a global guarantee.
Overwhelmingly American voters’ support Israel’s right to exist as opposed the Arab and Muslim desire to destroy the Jewish State of Israel. Thus at a time when a significant amount of voters may be watching President Obama speak because of the prime time nature of the coverage of the State of the Union Address the Leftist messiah told Americans:
President Obama also spoke about the peace process between Israel and Palestinians. The president openly declared Israel as a Jewish state, a point that the Palestinians refuse to acknowledge and that has led to numerous failures of past peace talks.
“As we speak, American diplomacy is supporting Israelis and Palestinians as they engage in difficult but necessary talks to end the conflict there; to achieve dignity and an independent state for Palestinians, and lasting peace and security for the State of Israel – a Jewish state that knows America will always be at their side,” Obama told Congress. This statement received a standing ovation from both Democrat and Republican legislatures. (Bold Italics Mine – State of the Union Address: Obama Takes Soft Stance on Middle Eastern Policy; By Lea Speyer; Conservative Musings; 1/29/14 12:57 pm)
Just in case you missed the Obama promise: “… a Jewish state that knows America will always be at their side”.
Here comes the Obama threat that makes that a lie:
‘Bibi’, the President all but said, ‘if you don’t accept the peace plan that my Secretary of State hasn’t even released yet, you will ruin your country.’ The interview was released for publication almost the very moment as Netanyahu’s plane departed to meet with Obama in Washington.
In addition to droning on about the growing dangers posed by increasing Israeli settlement ‘expansion’, the “rights” of Palestinian refugees, the historic “moderation” of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, and the reasonableness of the Iranian regime, President Obama used the interview with Goldberg to issue ominous new threats and dire warnings against the Jewish state if it did not agree to accept his plan to shrink Israel back inside the 1949 armistice lines.
Obama tells Goldberg that it isn’t really the Palestinians who need to change. It is Israel. Palestinian terrorism against Israeli civilians is essentially the result of steps Israel takes to prevent such terrorism. The best way to change the Palestinian Authority’s incitement to – and celebration of blood curdling violence against Jews – is for Israel to change its housing policy.
Nothing new here. This has been the President Obama’s basic position since long before he ever ran for public office; and a position shared by most of the international community.
What is new about Obama’s latest interview are his threats. If Israel doesn’t do what Obama decides Israel should do, then Israel should no longer expect the U.S. to support it: “If you see no peace deal and continued aggressive settlement construction – and we have seen more aggressive settlement construction over the past couple of years – if Palestinians come to believe that the possibility of a contiguously sovereign Palestinian state is no longer within reach, then our ability to manage the fallout is going to be limited.” (Bold and Italics are mine – AS WORLD ORDER IMPLODES, OBAMA PROMISES TO ACT… AGAINST ISRAEL; By THOMAS ROSE; Breitbart; 3/3/14)
Not surprisingly this Obama lie is not getting a lot of American press. Rather the press is focused on the goings on in Ukraine. Ukraine is a crisis but selling out Israel to a potential Muslim executed Holocaust of Jews is a disaster of huge moral dimensions. The above Breitbart quote was discovered like on page 5 of a Bing Search. I had gone through 20 pages of a Google Search and found zero. I was alerted to this Obama threat of betrayal to Israel from being on the email list of the Times of Israel that had two titles relating to the Obama threat:
Israel can expect to face international isolation and possible sanctions from countries and companies across the world if Benjamin Netanyahu fails to endorse a framework agreement with the Palestinians, US President Barack Obama cautioned on Sunday ahead of a meeting with the Israeli prime minister
But if Netanyahu “does not believe that a peace deal with the Palestinians is the right thing to do for Israel, then he needs to articulate an alternative approach,” Obama said.
“There comes a point where you can’t manage this anymore, and then you start having to make very difficult choices,” he said.
The president went on to stress that he would convey to Netanyahu, in the spirit of the Jewish sage Hillel the Elder, that the prime minister could lead Israel toward peace if he chose to do so.
“If not now, when? And if not you, Mr. Prime Minister, then who?” Obama said.
The president went on to condemn in no uncertain terms Israel’s settlement activities in …
“If you see no peace deal and continued aggressive settlement construction — and we have seen more aggressive settlement construction over the last couple years than we’ve seen in a very long time — if Palestinians come to believe that the possibility of a contiguous sovereign Palestinian state is no longer within reach, then our ability to manage the international fallout is going to be limited,” Obama said.
The president added that Israel must come to a decision over its future character and weigh whether its current policies are conducive to achieving its true aspirations.
“Do you resign yourself to what amounts to a permanent occupation of the West Bank?” he inquired of the Israeli public.
“Is that the character of Israel as a state for a long period of time? Do you perpetuate, over the course of a decade or two decades, more and more restrictive policies in terms of Palestinian movement? Do you place restrictions on Arab Israelis in ways that run counter to Israel’s traditions?” he asked.
Obama further stated that in his opinion, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas “has proven himself to be somebody who has been committed to nonviolence and diplomatic efforts to resolve” the conflict.
Asked whether he felt Abbas was sincere about his willingness to recognize Israel and its right to exist, the president replied that he was sure that was the case. (Obama: US won’t be able to defend Israel if peace talks fail; By ADIV STERMAN; Times of Israel; 3/2/14 11:51 pm)
What a load of – Left Wing hate Israel – love Arabs that call themselves Palestinians – load of disinformation crap this is from the Liar-in-Chief.
Obama presumed to tell the public if Netanyahu had a better plan the Prime Minister should “articulate an alternative approach”. Netanyahu has been very publically upfront about an alternative approach and it is simple; viz. that PA President needs to agree that Israel is a Jewish State, all of Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel and Israel’s borders are defensible when Arabs –
cough – like psycho-Palestinians decide to invade Israel to drive Jews into the sea.
Imagine the look down at your nose of hubris as a Left Wing Gentile saying publically he would tell Prime Minister Netanyahu, “…in the spirit of the Jewish sage Hillel the Elder, that the prime minister could lead Israel toward peace if he chose to do so.”
Also in light of the very simple defined acknowledgments from PA President Abbas, Obama has the hutzpah to say, “…Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas ‘has proven himself to be somebody who has been committed to nonviolence and diplomatic efforts to resolve’ the conflict”. Here is a 1/22/14 refutation to the lie to Obama’s statement that Abbas is committed to nonviolence:
The Fatah party of Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has posted threats to bomb Tel Aviv on its official Facebook page.
The threats came in the form of a video by Fatah’s armed wing – the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade – which threatened to turn Tel Aviv “into a ball of fire”, as well as escalated rocket fire on Israeli civilians.
Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade has been declared a terrorist group by the US, EU, Israel and Canada, among others.
The post was spotted on Tuesday and translated by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), which regularly monitors PA media for incitement and anti-Semitism. Excerpts from the eight-minute video can be seen below:
The threats come despite the fact that the Palestinian Authority is engaged in “peace negotiations” with Israel, and bolster claims by Israeli leaders that the PA is not really serious about finding a peaceful political solution to the conflict.
The Israeli government only recently released its annual “Palestinian Incitement Index“, which showed that incitement against Israel and the Jewish people is continuing on official media channels including – inter alia – by bodies that are very close to the PA Chairman and in educational and religious networks.
The findings also show that during the period of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, not only did incitement not lessen, in certain areas it even increased, and that recently, the use of prominent Nazi elements – such as the image of Hitler – has also increased.
Such incitement ranges from the glorification of Nazism and the lionization of Adolf Hitler, to programs on official PA television featuring heavily-stereotyped Jews as villains (and encouraging violence against them), and various TV and radio shows which literally wipe the Jewish state off the map.
In at least one case, a terrorist who went on to murder an off-duty Israeli soldier used official PA TV to send a coded message of his plan to his jailed brother.
But the involvement by the PA in diplomatic talks and the simultaneous calls for continued violence by its official organs may not be as contradictory as it seems.
Another video exposed earlier this month by PMW revealed – not for the first time – how PA officials view negotiations, and subsequent Israeli concessions, merely as a “first stage” in the ultimate destruction of Israel, after which terrorism can be resumed “more effectively”. (Mahmoud Abbas’ Party Threatens to ‘Bomb Tel Aviv’; By Ari Soffer; Arutz Sheva 7 – IsraelNationalNews; 1/22/2014, 8:20 PM)
So much for Obama’s Foreign Policy acumen and veracity.
Since Obama stabbed Netanyahu in the back – AGAIN, the Israeli Prime Minister responded to the Obama threat to throw Israel under the bus:
Blame for the morass in the Middle East peace process lies squarely with the Palestinians, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said late Sunday, hours after US President Barack Obama was quoted saying that Washington would be hard-pressed to defend Israel should talks fail.
Netanyahu made the remarks upon landing in Washington, where he was to meet Monday with Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry, who is managing negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. Netanyahu and Kerry will also speak at the conference of the AIPAC pro-Israel lobby in the capital.
Before boarding his plane to the US, the prime minister said he had rejected pressures in the past and would continue to do so.

The Ukraine has been invaded by Russia ostensibly to preserve peace which probably means to protect the Russian speaking and Pro-Russia Ukrainians of the Crimea part Ukraine. At any rate Allen West has written a brief but explosive little essay about how the voters have elected an impotent weak President unable to confront Russia’s goal of becoming a big player at the cost of Liberty.
Sorry Ukraine, America voted the wrong way in 2012
By Allen West
March 1, 2014
During his first term, Obama told then-Russian President Medvedev to “tell Vladimir I will have more flexibility after reelection.”
Last week, Obama demonstrated some of that flexibility, which in that case meant decimating our military capability.
Yesterday, Obama demonstrated more flexibility, which meant more empty words and meaningless threats. There will be costs for any military intervention into Ukraine and Crimea? Just sounds like any red line blather from the community organizer prom king.
Vladimir Putin is a steely-eyed former KGB agent. He knows America under Obama has no options and no guts. It has taken Obama almost two weeks to address the Ukraine issue. Obama already cancelled the missile defense shield for Eastern Europe.
Americans and our allies don’t trust Obama to lead anything bigger than a Gay Pride parade. Hillary Clinton offered Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov a toy reset button. Putin reset it to USSR.
Elections have consequences and the result is an absence of courageous American leadership. I humbly apologize to the liberty-loving people of Ukraine. The beacon of liberty and freedom that was American no longer shines brightly. Putin, you lucky rascal, your timing could not have been any better. America has no leader.
Meet Allen West
Allen West was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia in the same neighborhood where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached. He is the third of four generations of military servicemen in his family.
During his 22 year career in the United States Army, Lieutenant Colonel West served in several combat zones: in Operation Desert Storm, in Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he was a Battalion Commander in the Army’s 4th Infantry Division, and later in Afghanistan. He received many honors including a Bronze Star, three Meritorious Service Medals, three Army Commendation Medals and a Valorous Unit Award. In 1993 he was named the US Army ROTC Instructor of the Year.
After his retirement from the Army in 2004, Allen taught high school for a year before returning to Afghanistan as a civilian military adviser to the Afghan army, an assignment he finished in November 2007.
In November of 2010, Allen was honored to continue his oath of service to his country when he was elected to the United States Congress, representing Florida’s 22nd District. As a member of the 112th Congress, he … READ THE REST
There is a campaign from several Conservative and Tea Party organizations to keep Benghazigate in the public’s eye. Which is a good thing since President Barack Hussein Obama has called Benghazigate (AND his numerous other scandals) phony scandals and the presumed Dem heir-apparent Hillary Clinton has proclaimed, “What difference does it make,” that the Benghazi 4 died. Of course these organizations are seeking donations to perpetuate the campaign. If you believe – as I do – that Obama and his minions are liars and intent to cover-up Benghazigate (and the other presume “phony scandals”), then I encourage you to give out of your substance to keep voters aware that this is the wickedest and most corrupt Presidential Administration since the days of the Nixon Administration.

Muslim Apologists tell Westerners that the ideology known as Radical Islam is a so-called minority element within Islam that does not represent the “true” Islam. Muslim Apologists attempt to sell the reasoning that Radical Islam is not representative of the “true” Islam by claiming the “true” is a religion of peace and the false/warped Radical Islam is a religion of violence and terrorism. Frankly I don’t buy the reasoning because Islam’s core writings – including the Quran – encourage violence to punish irreverence toward Islam and violence up to and including vicious forms of capital punishment that Westerners would consider minor infractions toward religious beliefs and/or discipline.
When confronted with the reality of Muslim holy writings as violent Muslim Apologists move toward obfuscating that truth by claiming Judaism and Christianity have inherent violence in their holy writings as well. OF COURSE this is a deceptive lie. The violent conquest of the Promised Land in the Old Testament was a limited scope that was to end once the Canaanite people had been eliminated due to their ungodly practices. For Christians the New Testament shows that Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets hence Redemption delivers us from the consequences of the Law and magnifies the blessings of the Law. NON-VIOLENCE is the key theme of the New Testament. Divergent from the Christian Scriptures history shows us that much violent and tragic occurrences took place in which human rulers attempted to validate their actions by doing so in the Name of Jesus and the Kingdom of God. HOWEVER – and unlike Islamic holy writings – violence perpetrated in the Name of Jesus for conquest and/or punishment is absolutely contrary to Christian Scriptures.
If the majority of Muslims that Westerners are told follow the peaceful strictures of their theo-political ideology, then these so-called Moderate Muslims do not follow the purity of Islamic doctrine. BUT the so-called minority Muslims that act on their core doctrines are actually following the “true” Islam.
Becoming aware then that Islam’s core holy writings encourage acts of violence – especially against non-Muslims, YOU should be concerned about the amount of Muslims that have a close association with Radical Islam that are either a part or have security clearance to some of the highest levels of the American government.
In past posts I have put a lot of focus on one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides in Huma Abedin. Abedin has direct and disturbing ties to one of the most recognizable of Radical Islamic groups to Westerners; i.e. the Muslim Brotherhood. There is person that has a disturbing link to the Muslim Brotherhood in the highest level of the United States government that should cause even more concern than Huma Abedin. This is a person that the Mainstream Media (MSM) and Republicans are extremely hesitant to bring up this subject of the Muslim Brotherhood connection. Democrats would blow a gasket and label such a connection as the warped accusations of racist-bigoted Right Wingers. So who is this high level government person that should cause concern? It is President Barack Hussein Obama.
In disbelieving consternation most may ask, “Who is this person of a Muslim Brotherhood persuasion that connect the President of the United States to a Radical Islamic group that has both overt and stealth plans to bring the world under the despotic thumb of an Islamic Caliphate?”
This Obama connection is to Abon’go Malik Obama (AMO), the older half-brother of Barack sired by the same Kenyan father Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. AMO is a big dog in the Muslim Brotherhood’s international investments wing of the now Egyptian labeled terrorist organization. I am cross posting an article by Determine The Networks below that thoroughly explains AMO’s bona fide following of the purist Radical Islamic organization we Westerners call the Muslim Brotherhood.
ABON’GO MALIK OBAMA
Born (in 1958) and raised in Kenya, Abon’go Malik Obama (AMO) is the older half-brother of U.S. President Barack Obama. He holds a degree in accounting from the University of Nairobi, and as a young man he spent the better part of 14 years working in the United States—mostly as an accountant—for Lockheed, Fannie Mae, and the American Red Cross. During that period, AMO developed a close relationship with Barack Obama—serving as “best man” at the latter’s 1992 wedding to Michelle Robinson (Obama). Barack, in turn, was best man at one of AMO’s numerous marriage ceremonies. A practicing Muslim, AMO currently has twelve wives—two of whom he has been accused of beating.
In 2008 AMO established the Barack H. Obama Foundation (BHOF) in memory of his (and President Obama’s) biological father, Barack H. Obama, Sr. (1936-82). The foundation’s stated purpose was to “provide people everywhere with resources to uplift their welfare and living standards.” But from 2008-11, BHOF operated illegally as a nonprofit entity—falsely claiming tax-exempt status for which it had never formally applied. According to Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, this constitutes “common law fraud and potentially even federal mail fraud.”
Apart from his work with BHOF, Abon’go Malik Obama helps to oversee the international investments of the Muslim Brotherhood. He also serves as executive secretary of the Sudan-based Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO), which:
o seeks to expand Wahhabist Islam on the African subcontinent;
o bankrolls a “Gaza relief” program with funds that initially pass through the Al Shamal Islamic Bank—an al Qaeda-linked institution founded by the late Osama bin Laden—and are then distributed through the terror group Hamas to selected recipients;
o is a member of the Coalition of Islamic Organizations, which also includes the Islamic Society in Gaza—a group that was established by Hamas co-founder Ahmed Yassin and was headed for nearly a decade by former Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh; and
Also in AMO’s orbit was the late Libyan dictator Muammar Qadhafi, with whom the Kenyan had a close relationship from the 1980s until Qadhafi’s death in 2011. AMO once interceded on Qadhafi’s behalf during the Libyan civil war.
o “Jerusalem is ours—WE ARE COMING”
o “From the river to the sea”—a Hamas rallying-cry claiming that 100% of the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, which is where Israel is situated, rightfully belongs to the Palestinians (while Israel has no right to exist)
In March 2013, AMO ran for a county gubernatorial seat in western Kenya but was defeated decisively. He captured just 2,792 votes—some 140,000 fewer than the victor.
That same month, AMO told Mail Online about the close relationship he continued to enjoy with his half-brother, Barack, who was “always at the end of a phone line if I want to talk.” “I last saw him on November 19 last year,” Abon’go added, “shortly after the U.S. election. I went to the White House and offered him my congratulations.”
In July 2013, AMO similarly told GQ magazine that he and his half-brother spoke to one another on a regular basis. “Of course we’re close!” he said. “I’m the one who brought him here to Kogelo in 1988! I thought it was important for him to come home and see from whence his family came—you know, his roots.”
 AMO once attended an IDO board of trustees meeting where President Bashir vowed “that the enemies of Islam who attempt to impose hegemony and make a siege and … encourage plots [and evil measures] towards Sudan will fail.” Further, terrorism expert Walid Shoebat reports that AMO’s boss within the IDO, Suar al-Dahab, has explicitly and repeatedly called for Israel’s destruction.

Islamo-Reality and Treason
By Justin O. Smith
Sent: 2/2/2014 1:14 PM
One must oppose any group and anything that works against one’s right to make choices, in a peaceful and self-determining manner, and individual Liberty, whether it is Nazi fascism, Stalin’s communism, Obama’s fundamental transformation of America, or Islam and its islamoNazi core doctrines. With this said, it is not “islamophobia” to analyze and discuss Islam’s intolerance, inherent violent nature and the documented facts concerning Islam’s continuous assaults on the West and Islam’s disruption of civilized societies: This is Islamo-Reality.
The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) is a growing enemy within our sovereign borders. From its own charter, we have read the very words calling for the destruction of America. Its influence extends throughout the U.S. government and local areas across the nation; and this should greatly trouble everyone, especially in light of the December 23, 2013 bombings in Mansoura, Egypt, historical events preceding this, and Egyptian Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi’s declaration that the Muslim Brotherhood is a “terrorist organization”, a designation the MB has worn numerous times.
Imam Amir Abdel Malik Ali addressed the Muslim Student Association at UCLA, and at one point he shouted, “I will die to establish Islam in America.”
Today, seventy percent of Egypt’s population desires a government and a constitution based on Sharia law. And yet, after democratically electing Mohammed Morsi and empowering the Muslim Brotherhood, they soon rejected MB rule due to the extremely violent measures it employed. Journalists were imprisoned along with Mubarak supporters, and recently an audiotape has indicated that Morsi was cooperating with Al Qaeda in targeting Christians for murder. All of this contributed to “Field Marshall” Sisi, a Mubarak associate, grabbing power and imprisoning Morsi, as the turmoil continues and the violence rages.
Current day Egypt parallels Egypt during the 1950s. Jamal Abd al-Nasser needed the support of the MB leader Hasan Ismail al-Hudaybi to create an Egyptian republic, after seizing power in 1952. In 1954, Nasser refused to fully apply Islamic law, as Hudaybi demanded, and he outlawed the MB on the grounds that they were plotting a counter coup. On October 26, 1954 a member of “The Secret Apparatus”/ al jihaz al-sirri, a MB terrorist unit, shot Nasser at a rally; by the end of November 1954, over 1000 Brothers had been arrested and brought to trial: From their inception, the MB had rejected Nasser’s brand of “true” and “liberal” Islam and secularism, and they embraced violent Sunni fundamentalism and the Theocratic State.
In 1982, Hafez al Assad, Syrian dictator, brutally suppressed a savage revolt by Muslim Brothers in Hama. The MB cut the throats of the families of government workers and Baath Party officials, murdered local policemen and beheaded teachers who insisted on secular education – just as the Groupe Islamique Arme did in Algeria, when these MB allies decapitated seven Catholic monks in 1996. Sound familiar? Just look at Syria’s current situation.
Ask James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, “Just when did the MB become ‘a largely secular’ organization?”
Murfreesboro’s local MB hero, Saleh Sbenaty is closely aligned to Nihad Awad, the terrorist from CAIR, and Jamal Badawi and the movement to force America to submit to Islam. Sbenaty openly supports Hamas. And yet, he fled Syria in 1982. If he believed in the “truth” of Islam so strongly and loved Syria so much, why did he not stand and fight? Some freedom fighter, huh?
Instead of isolating the MB, the Obama administration has taken an unnatural delight in coddling them, because Obama never severed his implanted Islamic sympathy from his childhood days. This partially explains the visa issued to Hani Nour Eldin by the U.S. State Dept. in June 2013. Eldin is a member of Gama’a al Islamiyya, the terrorist organization responsible for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and one of five signatories of Osama bin-Laden’s February 1998 ‘World Islamic Front Statement Urging Jihad Against Jews and Crusaders’, America and Europe. Shouldn’t it be imperative to review the policy protocol that permitted a member of bin-Laden’s jihad front into the White House?
Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott reported three weeks ago that retired General Tom McInerney essentially confirms that the Obama administration has exposed national security information through Huma Abedin. Abedin is Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, and she has deep personal and family ties with the MB.
John Guandolo, former FBI counter terrorism expert, goes one step further in explanation: “Mr. Brennan, now head of the CIA, did convert to Islam when he served in an official capacity for the U.S. in Saudi Arabia. He has given them access to the National Security Council, the National Security staff. He has brought known Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood operatives into those positions of government.”
The Progressive/Democratic Party mindset, which has enabled MB infiltration of the U.S. government, is of the same nature that allowed Gehad al-Haddad to serve as a top official for the Clinton Foundation, while he simultaneously served as the MB spokesman and advisor to Egyptian President Morsi, from February 2011 until his arrest for inciting violence in September 2013.
Two days after the Boston Marathon bombing, Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) stated, “It’s very clear to everyone but this administration that radical Islam is at war against us…This administration has so many Muslim Brotherhood members that have influence that they are just making wrong decisions for America.”
Interestingly, since September 2013, Al Jazeera and numerous sources, such as the Director of Research at Brookings Doha Center, have alleged that Barack Obama is a “full on member” of the Muslim Brotherhood, and in November 2013, Egyptian lawyers charged Barack and his brother Malik Obama in the International Criminal Court with “crimes against humanity” and many other crimes ranging from murder to “deprivation of physical liberty.” While Malik is accused of funding terrorists in Sudan, Barack Obama is also accused of using the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to provide direct financial support to MB operatives, with Morsi’s complicity.
Obama and his administration have assured a dramatic and accelerated measure of success for the Muslim Brotherhood globally and in America. Whether it is the so-called “refugee” program that is allowing terrorists a cover for entering our nation or Obama’s outright support for the jihadist movements, from Al Qaeda militias in Libya to the MB in Egypt and on to both groups in Syria, this twisted and perverse Middle East policy is unrecognizable as American and is not in the best interest of the U.S. And, in the best light of day, as I recall American lives lost and the Twin Towers collapsing, only one word can possibly describe Obama’s actions – treason.

There is a long line of Conservative individuals and organizations – especially the independent Tea Party organizations – that have been persecuted and/or targeted for being anti-Obama. Dinesh D’Souza has enter the long list for making the documentary 2016: Obama’s America which actually grossed $33 MILLION bucks at the box office.
Obama’s persecution campaign has been going on for some time either through the IRS or through the Justice Department. In D’Souza’s case the Justice Department is going after him for mistakenly giving more than allowed in a campaign donation for the Republican candidate for the New York Senate (who lost). The campaign of Wendy Long actually returned the excess. Even so, the Justice Department is going after D’Souza even though the money was returned. NOW THAT IS SOME CRAZY POLITICAL PERSECTUTION in the United States of America.
I first became aware of this Leftist persecution of a Conservative dissenter of Obama through a Facebook friend. I will post his alert along with the movie documentary 2016: Obama’s America after this news report I found at Freedom Outpost which delves into the specifics I just merely introduced.
Indictment Of Obama Critic Dinesh D’Souza Is A Warning For All Conservatives
By Janna Brock
January 25, 2014
“2016: Obama’s America” was one of the most talked about movies of the summer in 2012. Directed by Dinesh D’Souza, an outspoken critic of President Obama, it explored the fundamental idea, “If Barack Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?” Dinesh D’Souza probably never imagined that he would be indicted by a grand jury for giving “too much money” to a U.S. Senate candidate in 2012. In what amounts to nothing but trumped up charges, it stands to reason that this is direct targeting by the Obama Administration. Conservatives from all across the country, in any arena, need to heed the warning that Obama is after them. No one is safe.
Dinesh D’Souza is a well known author as well, having written the books Illiberal Education, What’s So Great About America, The End of Racism, and The Roots of Obama’s Rage, which “2016: Obama’s America” was based on, and many others. So it is no coincidence that the Obama Administration, using every available weapon at their disposal, would single out D’Souza. He had a bulls-eye on his back. All conservative Americans do. If the DOJ can indict Dinesh D’Souza for campaign finance “violations,” no one is safe.
Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, whose documentary 2016: Obama’s America took a critical look at President Barack Obama and was a surprise hit in 2012, will be arrested in New York on Friday for allegedly violating campaign-finance laws, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Federal authorities accuse D’Souza of donating more than is legal to the campaign of Wendy Long, who ran in 2012 for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton but lost to now-Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. Long, though, is not mentioned in an indictment obtained by THR on Thursday.
Insiders say D’Souza has been friends with Long since they attended Dartmouth College together in the early 1980s. According to the indictment, D’Souza donated $20,000 to Long’s campaign by aggregating the money from various people and falsely reporting the source of the funds. But Gerald Molen, a co-producer of 2016, says the charge is politically motivated.
“In America, we have a long tradition of not doing what is commonly done in too many other countries — criminalizing dissent through the selective enforcement of the law,” Molen tells THR.
D’Souza is accused of donating $20,000 to candidate Wendy Long, who was challenging Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Gillibrand beat Long by 44 percentage points. Long never stood a chance against Gillibrand, and her name was never mentioned in the indictment against D’Souza. The Daily Caller reports “that indictment claims that D’Souza, 52, deceptively used straw donors to donate the funds, and misreported the source of the campaign cash.”
Long only raised $785,000 total for her campaign against Gillibrand. To accuse D’Souza of deceptively using straw donors to donate funds and misreport campaign cash for a candidate that lost by almost 50 percentage points is ludicrous. This is political targeting. Obama’s DOJ had their eyes on D’Souza and decided to take him out. This was a choreographed hit.
In 2012, federal law “limited primary and general election campaign contributions to $2,500 each, for a total of $5,000, from any individual to any one candidate.”
Preet Bharara, an Obama appointee who is the U.S. Attorney for Manhattan, said, “As we have long said, this Office and the FBI take a zero tolerance approach to corruption of the electoral process.”
The Obama Administration says they have a “zero tolerance” approach to corruption of the electoral process is akin to Islamists saying they have a “zero tolerance” for the killing of Jews. Nothing could be further from the truth. In 2008, Obama’s Department of Justice was accused of voter intimidation, when members of the New Black Panther Party were seen threatening voters in Philadelphia. Non-Citizens were caught voting in Ohio in the 2012 Presidential election. In February 2012, 1.8 million dead people were STILL registered to vote.
No, this is sweet justice for the Obama Administration, to categorically take down an outspoken rival. These charges are baseless in the face of obscene corruption by Obama and his fascist minions.
D’Souza first learned he was being investigated in the middle of 2013, several months after 2016 had earned $33 million at the box office and become the second-most-popular political documentary in U.S. history. The film included an interview with Obama’s half-brother, George Obama, who was mildly critical of the president.
Molen says D’Souza is being singled out for “an alleged minor violation” in the same way the IRS reportedly targeted conservative Tea Party groups for retribution. “In light of the recent events and the way the IRS has been used to stifle dissent, this arrest should send shivers down the spines of all freedom-loving Americans,” Molen says.
The timing is everything. D’Souza’s film earned $33 million dollars at the box office, and Obama was the subject of the movie. President Obama is using his office to take out his opponents; those who would dare speak out against him. Free speech is but a myth for conservatives in Obama’s America.
This is Obama’s America that Dinesh D’Souza warned the public about, but the sheeple chose not to heed the warnings. A tyrant and vicious dictator is using his power to wage war against his enemies, and when he is through with America, the landscape might not ever be the same.

Filmmaker prosecution revives accusations of conservative targeting
January 27, 2014
Less than a year after the IRS admitted to singling out Tea Party and other like-minded groups, federal agencies and prosecutors once again are facing accusations of going tougher on conservatives than their liberal counterparts.
In a case that riled conservative filmmakers and producers, federal prosecutors last week announced campaign finance charges against Dinesh D’Souza, the documentarian behind an anti-President Obama film released during the 2012 presidential campaign.
D’Souza pleaded not guilty on Friday, though his attorney did not outright deny that a violation of some kind may have occurred.
But colleagues rallied to D’Souza’s defense, calling the decision to prosecute the case politically motivated.
“When you make a film that hits the president between the eyes and could shift an election, you become a target,” conservative filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch told Fox News, referring to D’Souza’s “2016: Obama’s America.”
Producer Gerald Molen, in a statement to FoxNews.com, called it a “selective prosecution.”
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, on Sunday, also described it as part of a pattern during his interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” Though the comments were not aired on CBS, Cruz posted the full clip online.
“Can you image the reaction if the Bush administration had … gone and prosecuted Michael Moore and Alec Baldwin and Sean Penn?” Cruz said. “It should trouble everyone the government uses government power and the IRS in particular to target their enemies.”
D’Souza was charged with felony campaign finance violations, relating to allegations that he directed people to donate a total of $20,000 to New York Republican Senate candidate Wendy Long, and then reimbursed them.
His lawyer claimed there was no “quid pro quo” at play, “nor was there even any knowledge by the candidate that campaign finance rules may have been violated.”
Federal officials, though, described the alleged violations as serious.
U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement that the office and FBI take a “zero tolerance approach to corruption of the electoral process.”
“If, as alleged, the defendant directed others to make contributions to a Senate campaign and reimbursed them, that is a serious violation of federal campaign finance laws,” he said in a statement.

Benghazi Action Alert Before State of the Union!
Will President Obama Mention the Benghazi Investigation in his State of the Union Address Tomorrow Night?

*** IMPORTANT LEGISLATIVE ACTION ALERT ***
Tomorrow night, President Obama will update the nation on the State of the Union. During this time, he will surely discuss many issues. At ACT! for America, our question is: will he update the American people on the investigation into the September 11, 2012, jihadist terror attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi? Will he announce the imminent arrest of the responsible jihadists? Will he announce the termination of members of his administration who were negligent in their duties?
Senator Ted Cruz, who has introduced S.Res.225, legislation in the U.S. Senate creating a joint House/Senate Committee to investigate Benghazi released a list of five questions that he thinks Americans deserve to have addressed by President Obama during the State of the Union. Question number four is “Will the President call on Congress to form a Joint Select Committee to finally discover the truth of why four Americans perished in a preventable terrorist attack in Benghazi 16 months ago?”
If the administration’s deafening silence of the last year and a half is any indication, the answer doesn’t look promising.
Yet even in spite of the continued stonewalling by both the administration and the U.S. Congress, the American people have continued to vociferously demand answers about Benghazi – and so it has remained in the news. Thank you.
It is therefore critical that we continue to let our federal elected officials know that the American people will not forget the Benghazi attack; we will not forget the four Americans who were brutally murdered that night, including a U.S. Ambassador; and we will not abandon their still grieving families.
Just last week alone, there has been much attention on the Benghazi issue:
o Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA), who has introduced legislation creating a short term special congressional committee to investigate the Benghazi attack, once again implored Speaker Boehner via a letter to create a special committee in his chamber. It was a powerful, well-written letter and we think it’s worth a read.
o Greg Hicks, the Deputy Chief of Missions under Ambassador Stevens, wrote a compelling op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on the Benghazi issue, in which he responds to the latest attempts to blame the Ambassador for not being prepared for the attack.
o Ruth Marcus wrote a column in the Washington Post in which she stated her view that the Benghazi attack was preventable and noting how there has been so little accountability.
o New Members of Congress continue to be added to the ranks of cosponsors of Rep. Wolf’s legislation – with over ¾ of the House majority caucus now on the bill.
The Benghazi issue will only be addressed to the satisfaction of the American people when the American people demand it. Our federal legislators ultimately will listen to their constituents if they understand that their jobs are on the line. We are proud to see so many of our grassroots members continue to be vocal on this issue. You are making a difference. Keep it up.
As we lead up to tomorrow night’s State of the Union address, can I count on you to take the very important actions noted below?
** Important Benghazi Action Items **
Please contact your legislators in the both the U.S. House and Senate to express your support for legislation creating a special congressional committee to investigate the Benghazi attack. As always, please be respectful at all times.
Further, please pass this request on to everyone you know.
1. House of Representatives Legislation: H.Res.36 by Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA)
(NOTE: H. Res. 36 is NOT the same as H. R. 36. Please be sure to accurately identify the legislation we are supporting, to avoid confusion.)
Click HERE for a list of House Members, by state, who still have NOT cosponsored Rep. Wolf’s bill. Is your legislator on that list? If so, he or she needs to hear from you.
Please contact your legislator now via phone call or e-mail and request that he or she sign on to H.Res.36 as a cosponsor. Let your legislator know that this is a very important issue to you and one that you will have in mind when you cast your vote this November.

2. Senate Legislation, S.Res.225, by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)
Please contact your two U.S. Senators and express your support for S.Res.225. Again, let them know that this is an important issue to you, their constituent.

Intro to ‘Revolt’
Editor John R. Houk
January 20, 2014
Justin Smith writes an essay entitled “Revolt”. The premise is an understandable disgust with Barack Hussein Obama crossing the line from Presidential authority to Presidential tyrant. There is a time emerging in America in which citizens who choose to cherish the freedoms our Founding Fathers’ fought, died for and won may have to assert themselves AGAIN. As Thomas Jefferson penned in the Declaration of Independence:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. … (The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America; Congress, July 4, 1776; Charters of Freedom, Archives.gov)
Justin wrote he wrote his last paragraph with Isaiah 5: 20 and 7: 15 in mind. I believe he should have begun his essay with these two verses. So I am including them here for you to think about as you read this entire essay:
20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
15 Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good. (Isaiah 5: 20; 7: 15 NKJV)

It is not an exaggeration to name Barack Obama “a tyrant” or to state that America has entered a phase of soft tyranny under the Obama administration. Many would counter this assertion with examples of people still free to go to work, the stores, the movies and the daily routine of living, but tyranny never begins as cruel and oppressive; it starts out merely illegitimate and benign, just as so many of Obama’s executive orders and actions by Senator Harry Reid and the U.S. Senate have been in advancing the Progressive Movement’s agenda and shredding the U.S. Constitution.
Obama and the Progressive Democrats hate America. There can be no other explanation for their desire to fundamentally transform America from the greatest nation on earth, a nation that has helped to free much of the world both economically and physically, into a socialist/authoritarian shadow of its former self, impoverished, with every single aspect of life ruled by legislation from a central governing body of so-called “elites.” When Obama speaks of “economic equality”, he is actually calling for an end to individuality and individual liberty: Remember, this is the President and First Lady who have bragged about “disrespecting the American flag” and attending “numerous flag burnings” in the past.
Central planning is not about rationality and reason or knowledge and experience. It is about illegitimately exercising power over others through the deceit of moral relativism and situationalism. It is coercive and requires non-stop social engineering, while it concedes no failures and tolerates no deviation from dogma. And this is why, even in the face of the utter and miserable failure of the ACA [i.e. Obamacare], the Progressives refuse to broach any serious discussion with Republicans that considers abandoning the ACA in part or whole, although they applaud Obama’s unilateral and unConstitutional seventeen changes to the ACA.
Whenever, the issue of Executive orders is raised, the Progressives are quick to point to other presidents who signed more orders than Obama. The issue isn’t how many Executive orders he has signed; the issue is the kind of orders he has signed and their associated bureaucratic orders, rules and regulations (80,000 annually) unleashed on America.
Obama’s Executive order 13575 circumvented Congress’s rejection of the UN’s Agenda 21 and “sustainable development”, and in 2009, it placed controls on government and private lands, resources and energy; his National Defense Resources Preparedness order basically grants the president and his cabinet members absolute authority and power over all the nation’s natural resources and private materials, services and facilities; signed December 31, 2011, the National Defense Authorization Act allows the president to indefinitely detain any U.S. citizen on the mere suspicion that they might be a terrorist; and now the ACA , while not an executive order, is interfering in our individual choices and decisions to keep our own doctors and the health care plans we want and can afford.
During GM’s financial crisis and subsequent bailout, the Obama administration started its habit of targeting political enemies. Those GM dealers, who supported Obama’s election campaign, were allowed to stay in business, and those who did not support Obama were shut down.
Moreover, it is now evident that Obama has used his power through the IRS to target his political enemies, such as the Tea Party. Although he and his administration thoroughly deny this allegation, the circumstantial evidence is so heavy that any average American would already have been convicted and serving time on its weight alone.
Isn’t it surreal that the FBI ended its IRS investigation on the advice of Eric Holder’s appointee, Barbera Bosserman, who gave $6100 dollars to Obama’s campaign between 2008 and 2012? Whatever happened to independent counsels and select investigative committees?
Today, rather than target those who are most likely to commit terrorist atrocities, the islamofascists, Obama and the National Security Agency have placed the entire American population under a blanket warrant, for fear of being called “Islamophobic”. This sort of warrant was rejected by Americans, such as lawyer James Otis, in 1761, and the consequences of its implementation now are dangerous and authoritarian.
Do any of you remember Obama musing over the Chinese not having to contend with a “pesky Constitution”?
On January 14, 2014 many Americans may have finally been slapped awake by Obama’s statement, “I have a pen and a phone and I’ll act when Congress won’t”…to speak for “all the American people.” This is similar to his statement in December 2013, when he said, “If Congress refuses to act, I’ll do everything in my power to act without them.”
Our nation has been here before to a lesser degree under President Woodrow Wilson, who argued for obstructing and damaging constitutional primacy at every opportunity by corrupting the Constitution itself. He advocated for an all-powerful president, courts and judges willing to rewrite the U.S. Constitution (i.e. Chief Justice John Roberts) and controlling Congress in order to control state legislatures without limits, and in essence, expanding the federal government beyond Constitutional control: Obama has simply taken this plan to new, stunning and light speed levels of action.
During C-Span’s televised Congressional hearings in December of 2013, Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Judiciary Committee Chairman, remarked that the president “doesn’t have a debate in the Oval Office about what he wants to do …He does what he wants to do, and then you no longer have a representative democracy.” The executive’s powers have overtaken the legislative power, and this is destructive to the center of our constitutional design.
America has a lawless administration that picks and chooses, which laws it will follow. Obama has ordered Attorney General Eric Holder not to enforce U.S. law as it applies to immigration, the 1965 Voter Act and drugs, and he has used the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulations as a weapon to destroy the coal industry.
Also in December 2013, Representative Trey Gowdy asked, “If Obama can ignore parts of Obamacare, could he ignore election laws too? If You can turn off certain categories of law, do you not also have the power to turn off all categories of law?
There is no limiting principle that Obama and the Progressives are not willing to violate, due to the fact that they are ideologically driven, and they are out of control, as they place the Progressive agenda over any sense of duty or allegiance to the people of America. Obama actually had the temerity to declare the Senate out of session, when it was simply on a break. By concentrating power within the Executive Branch, Obama has become the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid.
After recent events, I have serious concerns over whether or not our traditional process will correct the course of our government’s trend towards authoritarian rule in time to save us. In past years, our differences were sorted out within the guidelines of the U.S. Constitution. What are we to do when one side decides to no longer be bound by the rules? The Progressives may have been born American citizens, but they are no longer American in their intentions for our nation. And, when the government, led by Obama and these Progressives, becomes lawless, it is not illegal or treason to finally take to the streets in protest/civil disobedience, at the very least, in the defense of the U.S. Constitution and America__to finally hold the criminals in the Obama administration accountable through armed revolt should it persist in its treason, since many of America’s veterans, past and present, took an oath to defend the U.S. against “enemies both foreign and domestic.”
Unlike the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a black liberation theologist and one of Obama’s mentors, who is a millionaire several times over because of the vast opportunity America offers everyone through its exceptional nature; and, who once said, “God damn America for as long as she acts like God and she is supreme”, I say, not taking the Lord’s name in vain but as my most fervent prayer, “No, no, no__God damn Obama and the Progressive Party for as long as they act like they are God and they are supreme__God damn them for the ruin they have wrought upon Our Beloved America. Amen, amen, amen.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testifies before he Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Jan. 23, 2013 – “What difference does it make?”
Yesterday I cross posted the James Rosen article summarizing what Obama was actually aware of pertaining to the Benghazigate Scandal. To summarize what knowledge Obama had about the Islamic terrorist attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans including Ambassador Chris Steven with one word – LIAR. Obama lied AND the President told his Administration surrogates to lie (such as Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Jay Carney).
Undoubtedly the Mainstream Media will twist some propaganda to make lite of one these so-called Obama phony scandals so below is another perspective based on an interview with Rep. Steve King (R-IA) conducted by WND’s Garth Kant that focuses on the next Dem Party darling in former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
CONGRESSMAN: HILLARY BUSTED IN MONSTER ‘LIE’
‘I heard her with my own ears’
By GARTH KANT
January 14, 2014
WASHINGTON — President Obama has problems with credibility, as the world well knows after he disingenuously insisted, “If you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan” about two dozen times in public.
Now, it turns out, the Democrat most political observers believe will try to replace Obama as president apparently also has problems telling the truth.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied to the American people about Benghazi, a congressman who recently returned from a fact-finding trip to Libya told WND.
He said she also lied to Congress.
Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, was unequivocal when WND asked him, “What makes you so certain that Hillary Clinton lied?”
“Because,” King replied, “I heard her with my own ears.”
And, what contradicted her?
King also had a blistering response to a famous question posed by Clinton.
During a Senate committee hearing Jan. 23, 2013, when asked what caused the death of four Americans in Benghazi, Clinton responded indignantly, “At this point, what difference does it make?”
WND asked King if he had an answer for her.
“The reason it makes a difference, Hillary Clinton, is because this administration lied to the American people. Her voice was one of those voices that lied to the American people.”

The congressman related how Clinton and other administration officials were dishonest when they briefed Congress within a week of the terrorist attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, in which U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, computer specialist Sean Smith and CIA security contractors Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed.
King said he could not divulge what was said during a classified briefing he attended, but, “I will just tell you that the administration’s officials told the same lies to members of Congress in a classified setting that they told the public five times on Sunday.”
He was referring to appearances on five political talk shows by then-Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice on Sept. 16, 2012, during which she claimed the attack was a spontaneous protest inspired by anger over an obscure anti-Muslim video on the Internet.
“We know that’s false,” King told WND. “On top of that, we know they knew it was false. They knew within three hours that it was a calculated, strategized attack by an organized enemy on that compound and that annex in Benghazi.”
Strong confirmation of King’s version of events has just come to light, as newly declassified documents show top defense officials briefed Obama that a terrorist attack was underway in Benghazi not long after it began.
During a classified, closed-door hearing last year, Gen. Carter Ham, who was responsible for U.S. forces in North Africa, testified that he very quickly got to the point and told then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that it was a terrorist attack and not a protest.
Panetta and Dempsey then met immediately with Obama.
Last February, Panetta told the Senate Armed Services Committee that he told Obama “there was an apparent attack going on in Benghazi.”
Panetta said, “There was no question in my mind that this was a terrorist attack.”
And yet, for the next few weeks, as the 2012 presidential election reached the crucial home stretch, a number of aides to both Clinton and Obama repeatedly insisted there was no evidence the attack on Benghazi was planned, but it appeared to be protest that turned violent.
That was contradicted by testimony on May 8, 2013, by U.S. diplomat Gregory Hicks, who was in Libya at the time of the Benghazi terrorist attack.
He, and two other key witnesses agreed, there was no basis for Rice to claim the attack began as a protest of an anti-Islamic film. And yet, Obama and Clinton repeatedly made that claim in the hours and days after the incident.
Hicks pointedly said he was “stunned” by Rice’s response to the Benghazi attack.
“My jaw dropped, and I was embarrassed,” he said.
Hicks was asked if there was any indication of a protest in Benghazi in response to the Internet video.
“The YouTube video was a non-event in Libya,” he said.
“We know from the testimony,” King told WND. “We know it wasn’t the movie. It is a fact that it wasn’t the movie.”
He also pointed out that people who worked in the intelligence community as well as the State Department have testified under oath that they knew the movie did not trigger the attack.
“And they (administration officials) have not retracted them. They were dishonest,” King flatly stated.
The congressman made the blunt assertions to WND in his first published remarks following a recent trip he organized to hotspots in North Africa and the Middle East, with Reps. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, and Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.

The Iowan had more answers to Clinton’s question, “What difference does it make?”
He said, of course, the loss of Ambassador Stevens and the three other Americans “who stood there bravely to defend that compound” was a “significant tragedy.”
But, he called the truth an even bigger casualty.
“[T]he biggest tragedy of this is this administration came forward within days and began to misinform the American people on what took place in Benghazi.”
That’s because, King insisted, “It’s a tragedy when the integrity of the presidency and the administration of President Obama, or any president of the United States, can be sacrificed for a political agenda.”
The congressman noted that former Defense Secretary Robert Gates described in his new book how then-senator and presidential candidate Clinton took a position against the surge in Iraq in the presidential primary contests in 2008 for political reasons.
“If political decisions are made on war policy in Iraq when you’re campaigning for office, and if political conditions were part of the decision as to whether there would be a surge in Afghanistan, that’s also part of Gate’s book, then those two things all but confirm that the story that the administration promoted coming out of Benghazi was a political story, designed to cover,” charged King.
And why did they need cover? Because they were in the peak of the president’s re-election campaign, said the congressman.
He said the administration “should have told the American people the straight-up truth as soon as they knew it,” but instead, “they continue to cover-up Benghazi and the only reason they’ve been allowed to do it is a media that is, for a large part, complicit.”
Conceivably, that could derail presidential ambitions Clinton might harbor.
Judge Andrew Napolitano says the former secretary of state could be prosecuted if she did, in fact, lie.
“Lying to Congress carries the same criminal liability and the same punishment as lying under oath to Congress. I’m not suggesting that Mrs. Clinton lied, but I’m saying that a case could be made out, either legally in a courtroom if a prosecutor wanted to, and certainly politically in a public sphere should she decide to seek higher office,” Napolitano said, the day after Hicks testified to Congress that the video played absolutely no role in the Benghazi attack.

When WND asked King if those he spoke with in Libya share his observations about the attack on Benghazi, he said it depends on who you talk to.
He had nothing but praise for U.S. Ambassador to Libya Deborah Jones, calling her “excellent” and “terrific.”
“She’s in a very dangerous place, and she has a very difficult task. She’s upbeat, she’s knowledgeable,” and King said all of their discussions encouraged him that “we’ve got a good State Department operating in Libya.”
