Oh! Asylum! So, that’s how Obama’s gonna turn America from a Christian nation into a Muslim nation! There’s a buzz going around that before Obama leaves office, he’ll offer asylum to millions of Muslims, like Syrian “refugees,” paving their way to the USA. I guess we, the middle class taxpayers will be funding this Caliphate, without our consent. Maybe this is why Obama encouraged the “Arab Spring.”
Here, it is reported 500,000 Muslim refugees are coming.
This storyreports, “According to Arabic language broadcasts, “The Muslim world is saying that President Obama wants amnesty for the current Hispanic 12 million illegal immigrants in the US in order to pave the way for the next wave of tens of millions of illegals from the Middle East to the United States, leading to 50 to 100 million Muslims living in the US. before the end of Obama’s second term.”
Ten years ago, the Tsarnaev family was granted political asylum in the United States. Curiously, for ten years, they made frequent trips back to the country they fled. Despite warnings from Russia to our FBI, “two members of the Tsarnaev family set off pressure cooker bombs at the Boston Marathon as an act of Muslim terrorism.” Story here.
“As the L.A. Times reports, “Two resettled Iraqis were convicted of trying to send arms to Al Qaeda from their home in Bowling Green, Ky.” The Blaze reportshere.
“Unfortunately, these two men apparently represent the tip of a potentially deadly iceberg. “We are currently supporting dozens of current counter-terrorism investigations like that,” said FBI Agent Gregory Carl, director of the Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center (TEDAC). House Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) said, “I wouldn’t be surprised if there were many more than that…And these are trained terrorists in the art of bomb-making that are inside the United States…” Reporthere.
“ABC News is reporting that dozens of alleged Islamic terrorists with bomb-making skills may have been mistakenly allowed to take up residence in the United States, due to a flawed screening system.”
A long-time strategy of the political left has been to take its most threatening opponents – and those enemies’ most damaging arguments – and mock them, as though they’re ludicrous to even consider.Usually, the bullying technique results in marginalizing the opponent and silencing his or her arguments.But sometimes, it backfires.A recent Democratic National Committee email to supporters, for example, attempted to blackball four Republican congressmen for daring to suggest President Obama could be impeached for repeated violations of the Constitution.“Republicans are actually excited about the idea,” the email scoffed. “Show these Republicans they are way, way off-base.”But the email may have gotten more attention than the DNC intended.Highlighted by WND, the Daily Caller, Fox News and the Drudge Report, the email has now been seen by tens of millions of Americans.
One of Barack Obama’s chief accomplishments has been to return the Constitution to a central place in our public discourse.
Unfortunately, the president fomented this upswing in civic interest not by talking up the constitutional aspects of his policy agenda, but by blatantly violating the strictures of our founding document. And he’s been most frustrated with the separation of powers, which doesn’t allow him to “fundamentally transform” the country without congressional acquiescence.
But that hasn’t stopped him. In its first term, the Administration launched a “We Can’t Wait” initiative, with senior aide Dan Pfeiffer explaining that “when Congress won’t act, this president will.” And earlier this year, President Obama said in announcing his new economic plans that “I will not allow gridlock, or inaction, or willful indifference to get in our way.”
And so, as we reach the end of another year of political strife that’s fundamentally based on clashing views on the role of government in society, I thought I’d update a list I made two years ago and hereby present President Obama’s top 10 constitutional violations of 2013.
1. Delay of Obamacare’s out-of-pocket caps. The Labor Department announced in February that it was delaying for a year the part of the healthcare law that limits how much people have to spend on their own insurance. This may have been sensible — insurers and employers need time to comply with rapidly changing regulations — but changing the law requires actual legislation.
2. Delay of Obamacare’s employer mandate. The administration announced via blogpost on the eve of the July 4 holiday that it was delaying the requirement that employers of at least 50 people provide complying insurance or pay a fine. This time it did cite statutory authority, but the cited provisions allow the delay of certain reporting requirements, not of the mandate itself.
3. Delay of Obamacare’s insurance requirements. The famous pledge that “if you like your plan, you can keep it” backfired when insurance companies started cancelling millions of plans that didn’t comply with Obamacare’s requirements. President Obama called a press conference last month to proclaim that people could continue buying non-complying plans in 2014 — despite Obamacare’s explicit language to the contrary. He then refused to consider a House-passed bill that would’ve made this action legal.
4. Exemption of Congress from Obamacare. A little-known part of Obamacare requires Congressmen and their staff to get insurance through the new healthcare exchanges, rather than a taxpayer-funded program. In the quiet of August, President Obama directed the Office of Personnel Management to interpret the law to maintain the generous congressional benefits.
5. Expansion of the employer mandate penalty through IRS regulation. Obamacare grants tax credits to people whose employers don’t provide coverage if they buy a plan “through an Exchange established by the State” — and then fines employers for each employee receiving such a subsidy. No tax credits are authorized for residents of states where the exchanges are established by the federal government, as an incentive for states to create exchanges themselves. Because so few (16) states did, however, the IRS issued a rule ignoring that plain text and allowed subsidies (and commensurate fines) for plans coming from “a State Exchange, regional Exchange, subsidiary Exchange, and federally-facilitated Exchange.”
6. Political profiling by the IRS. After seeing a rise in the number of applications for tax-exempt status, the IRS in 2010 compiled a “be on the lookout” (“BOLO”) list to identify organizations engaged in political activities. The list included words such as “Tea Party,” “Patriots,” and “Israel”; subjects such as government spending, debt, or taxes; and activities such as criticizing the government, educating about the Constitution, or challenging Obamacare. The targeting continued through May of this year.
“Property is the fruit of labor…property is desirable…is a positive good
in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.” – Abraham Lincoln
The problem with public housing is that the residents are not the owners.
The people who live in the house did not earnthe house, but were merely loaned the property by the actual owners, the taxpayers.Because of this, the residents do not have the “pride of ownership” that
comes with the hard work necessary to become owners.In fact, quite the opposite happens. The residents resent their benefactors,
because the very house is a constant reminder that they themselves have not earned the right to live in the house.
They neither appreciate the value of the property nor understand the need to maintain or respect it in any way.
The result is the same, whether one is talking about either a studio apartment or a magnificent mansion full of priceless antiques.If the people who live there do not feel they’ve earned the privilege of occupancy, they will make this obvious through their actions.
For example, see the following series of photographs:
The desk was built from the timbers of the H.M.S. Resolute and was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes; it is considered to be a national treasure and an icon of the presidency.
The White House belongs to the people of America.Its treasures should NOT be used by ANYONE for a foot rest !!!These photos, ongoing proof that this man has no class whatsoever, all show an innate disrespect not only for our White House, but also for the peoplewith whom he associates.Only an oafremains seated, with his feet up on the desk, while another shakes his hand?
FROM THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA:
Mr. Obama, you’re not in Chicago public housing.
You’re in the White House , property of the people of the United States. With all due respect, get your @#%*+#% feet off our furniture !!!
O LORD, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, high and mighty King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, who dost from Thy throne behold all the dwellers on earth, and reignest with power supreme and uncontrolled over all the kingdoms, empires and governments; look down in mercy we beseech Thee, on these American States, who have fled to Thee from the rod of the oppressor, and thrown themselves on Thy gracious protection, desiring henceforth to be dependent only on Thee; to Thee they have appealed for the righteousness of their cause; to Thee do they now look up for that countenance and support which Thou alone canst give; take them, therefore, Heavenly Father, under Thy nurturing care; give them wisdom in council and valor in the field; defeat the malicious design of our cruel adversaries; convince them of the unrighteousness of their cause; and if they persist in their sanguinary purpose, O let the voice of Thy own unerring justice, sounding in their hearts, constrain them to drop the weapons of war from their unnerved hands in the day of battle! Be Thou present, O God of wisdom, and direct the counsels of this honorable assembly; enable them to settle things on the best and surest foundation, that the scene of blood may be speedily closed, that order, harmony and peace may be effectually restored, and truth and justice, religion and piety prevail and flourish among Thy people. Preserve the health of their bodies and vigor of their minds; shower down on them, and the millions they here represent, such temporal blessings as Thou seest expedient for them in this world, and crown them with everlasting glory in the world to come. All this we ask in the name and through the merits of Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Our Savior. Amen.
– First Prayer in Congress September 7, 1774, Jacob Duche, Carpenters Hall, Philadelphia
“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us, then to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”
Abraham Lincoln – Proclamation for a National Day of Fasting
The White House issued apresidential proclamationdeclaring December 15th Bill of Rights Day. That’s very nice except that he added Karl Marx’ living wages to his interpretation of the Bill of Rights.
By doing that, Mr.Obama is attempting to change the meaning our Founding Fathers ascribed to the document.
The proclamation is fine until it the third paragraph (emphasis mine):
We learned that our Nation, built on the principles of freedom and equality, could not survive half-slave and half-free. We resolved that our daughters must have the same rights, the same chances, and the same freedom to pursue their dreams as our sons, and that if we are truly created equal, then the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. Americans with disabilities tore down legal and social barriers; disenfranchised farmworkers united to claim their rights to dignity, fairness, and a living wage;…..
Karen Bracken, tireless local activist, fighting to save our children, explains Common Core in this video. It’s not too late to stop this government takeover of our schools. It is urgent that on the state and local level we fight back and refuse Common Core. These videos explain why.
“The magnitude of this Obama administration’s “progressive” radicalism becomes more evident with each passing day. In recent months, there has been a drastic spike in acts of both anti-Christian and anti-conservative discrimination and intimidation on military bases across the country. This mounting harassment is not being carried out at the hands of regular enlisted folk but, rather, at the hands of high-ranking officials who, in their official capacity, are targeting Christian and conservative organizations and individuals in an effort to silence them.
It has long been suspected that the Obama administration is using propaganda circulated by the roundly discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a left-wing extremist group that, in recent years, has adopted two primary goals: 1) raising truckloads of money and 2) smearing as “domestic hate groups” dozens of mainstream Christian ministries like the Family Research Council (FRC) and the American Family Association (AFA.)
This suspicion has now been verified.
The problem on military bases has gotten so bad, in fact, that the U.S. Congress is demanding answers from the Pentagon. Recently, the AFA-affiliated OneNewsNow.com newsgroup reported that “Congressman Alan Nunnelee (R-Mississippi) is 1 of 38 members of Congress signing off on a letter to the Secretary of the Army – especially about an incident last month at Camp Shelby, Mississippi, in which the Tupelo-based American Family Association was labeled in Army training material as a ‘hate group.’ The Army initially claimed it was an isolated incident.
“‘But as we looked into it, [we found] this is not an isolated incident,’ Nunnelee [told] OneNewsNow. ‘There are a number of cases where the Army has singled out the American Family Association and other Christian organizations as hate groups, and service men and women have been threatened with sanctions if they support these groups.”
After a tremendous public outcry – and in an embarrassing slap to the face of the SPLC – the Pentagon quickly backpedaled, later apologizing about the Camp Shelby incident and publicly admitting that, despite the SPLC’s absurd claims to the contrary, the AFA is not a “hate group.”
Still, rather than distancing itself from the anti-Christian SPLC as one might expect, the Obama administration has, instead, strengthened ties to the hard-left outfit. Even after this string of military scandals.
For instance, I recently learned that on its official website, the FBI lists as one of its primary “hate crimes resources” the Southern Poverty Law Center.
This is especially mysterious when you consider that the FBI’s own verified hate crimes statistics are completely at odds with numbers put out by the SPLC in its fundraising propaganda. Whereas the FBI indicates that there was a sharp 24.3 percent decrease in hate crimes from 1996 to 2010, with racial hate crimes dropping by 41.9 percent, the SPLC incongruously claims that since 2000, the number of “hate groups” has somehow increased by 67.3 percent.
So send your money right away!
The FBI’s empirical data doesn’t track with the SPLC’s political propaganda. Consequently, by partnering so closely with this discredited organization, the Department of Justice significantly undermines its own credibility.
Still, while the SPLC has proven utterly unreliable in its actuarial acumen – as well as intentionally dishonest – it has also proven demonstrably dangerous in its prolonged campaign of anti-Christian agitation.
You may recall that it was the Southern Poverty Law Center’s somewhat clever, yet patently dishonest and reprehensible, strategy of juxtaposing, as fellow “hate groups,” mainstream Christian organizations like the FRC and the AFA alongside violent extremist groups like the Aryan Brotherhood and the Skin Heads that, on Aug. 15, 2012, led to an actual act of domestic terrorism.
On that date, “gay” activist Floyd Lee Corkins II – who later confessed in court that he was spurred-on by the SPLC’s anti-Christian materials – entered the lobby of the Washington-based Family Research Council intending to kill every Christian within.
Corkins was armed with both a gun and a backpack full of ammunition. He also had 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches that he intended to rub in the faces of his would-be victims. (FRC had recently defended the food chain’s COO Dan Cathy for pro-natural marriage statements he made.)
The only thing standing between Corkins and mass murder was FRC facilities manager and security specialist Leo Johnson. As Corkins shouted disapproval for FRC’s “politics,” he shot Johnson who, despite a severely wounded arm, managed to tackle Corkins and disarm him….”
In another display of the overwhelming power of the public school system, a Tennessee father was arrested for trying to pick his child up from school at the end of the day. The dad arrived by foot to pick his son up from school at 2:00pm, the school’s dismissal time. However, he was told that he could not walk his son out due to a new school policy of only dismissing car riders at 2:00pm. Any student walking has to wait until 2:35pm to leave. The father pointed out that the new policy was likely intended for kids walking home alone – not for children whose parents are there to walk them out.
Unfortunately for everyone, the school resource officer was in the office at the same time and decided that the father was being belligerent and rude. He warned the dad that he would be arrested if he didn’t stop agitating for his son’s release.
When the father insisted that he did not need a reason to take his son out of school and that the school has no legal grounds to keep his son until 2:35, the officer pressed forward.
“I’m going to call some help down here and we’re going to take you up to the jail right now… I’m not putting up with this today. You’re being childish and it’s uncalled for.”
In the end, the father does not back down from his argument. The school has no right to hold his son against his parents’ will – which is when the officer arrests him for being “disorderly.” Fortunately for us, it was all caught on video, and we can see just how long the arms of the law can be – even unjust law.
Recently, US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and Secretary of State John Kerry held closed-door top-secret meetings to persuade the US Senate foreign relations and banking committees to end sanctions on Iran. The next day, Iraqi President Nouri al-Maliki visited the White House to ask for assistance against terrorist insurgents. Trying to curry favor with either Iraq or Iran is a losing proposition.
Having served in Iraq and Afghanistan, I can tell you it’s well recognized that Iranian influence is heavy in providing weapons, especially explosive force penetrators (EFPs) and training to groups fighting against our deployed men and women. We also know that Iran is led by radical theocrats with one goal in mind: destruction of the smaller Satan (Israel) and the greater Satan (America). We must understand their concept of returning the Mahdi, the hidden Imam, and what that means for the global Islamic revolution and global conquest.
How’d you like to own a company that charges its clients $10,000 per hour for “financial advice”? Kind of sounds like the Mafia offering “protection,” doesn’t it? You know what they say: “If it walks like a duck…”
The 2400 page “Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act” is written in such mumbo jumbo that banks need a “financial expert” to help them navigate it. Enter Promontory Financial Group. How does Promontory Financial Group know so much about the Dodd-Frank Act? They wrote it—giving themselves carte blanche to extort a staggering $2 billion by offering banks “financial advice”—financial advice, according to the banks, that didn’t do them a bit of good. Obama’s crony and mega-donor Eugene Ludwig, the CEO of Promontory, pulls in a staggering $30,000,000 per year in salary. Talk about “fat cats,” as Obama likes to call them. It’s in effect a Mafia “protection” racket, perfected by Al Capone himself.
But it doesn’t end there. Eric Holder’s old law firm—the law firm who supplied literally every single slot of the upper echelon in the Department of Justice (or should we say Department of Injustice)—is also in on the scam, protecting Promontory Financial Group’s staffers from using insider knowledge. You see, a staggering two-thirds of Promontory Financial Group’s 170 executives are former U.S. government finance chiefs—the FDIC, SEC, and of course the Federal Reserve; and they use their insider knowledge to extort billions from anything and everything—not just banks.
If you take a look at how Al Capone in the 1930s took over the banks, businesses, and the levers of power in government, you’d have a complete picture of what Barack Hussein Obama is doing from the Oval Office.
Barack Obama is truly a modern day Mob Boss.

With Mr. Obama and his allies attacking the right to keep and bear arms from a dozen angles at once, the anti-rights forces in America have overlooked the Undetectable Handgun Law of 1988, set to expire on Dec. 3, less than six weeks away. (Google 18 USC §922(p) for the letter of the law.)
If the law expires as it is scheduled to do, airports and all secure areas could be exposed to guns that metal detectors cannot identify.
Although no such guns exist (in the commercial world) and have never been available to the public, the “news” media created a furor over the non-existent firearms when the polymer-framed Glock pistol was introduced, spreading fear that such weapons could be smuggled into airports past all known screening devices. The Glock and all similar polymer-framed firearms contain large amounts of steel and are easily spotted by metal detectors.
The chances that Congress will let the statute expire are near zero, a quick survey of industry experts indicates. But the subject hasn’t hit the public radar yet, and simple reenactment of a federal gun law is a risky bet, given the present administration’s penchant for introducing gun mandates at any opportunity.
Any bill that must get through both houses of Congress becomes a magnet for amendments and agenda-driven add-ons. A gun bill will be particularly susceptible to that pressure. Only one tiny change will be needed, the same one made last time this expiration came up. The number of years in the sunset clause on this 1988 law, now “25,” will have to increase to whatever new date Congress chooses. They went from 15 to 25 last time.
However – no plans for renewal of the expiring “invisible” gun ban have been announced by either major political party. The expiration date, however, is set in stone by the existing law. If the law does expire, someone somewhere is likely to try to develop and introduce an undetectable gun (outside the world of superspies).
Two bills were introduced, one back in April, HR1474, which extended the ban for another 10 years and added undetectable ammo magazines, and S1149 in June, which also extends the ban for 10 years with similar conditions. Neither bill has gone anywhere. Undetectable guns and magazines doesn’t say much about undetectable ammo, but no one expects Congress to be very logical about any of this.
The expiration date is just 11 days prior to nationwide events planned to recognize the calamity surrounding the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Both pro-rights and anti-rights groups have announced intentions to use that date to press for action on gun rights in America. Efforts to restrict Americans’ right to arms, using the actions of the psychopath on that day as a motivation, have thus far failed.
Second Event Also on Dec. 3
By coincidence, Dec. 3 has been set by the Arizona Court of Appeals to hear oral arguments in the Guns Save Lives censorship case, with the Goldwater Institute’s Scharf-Norton Center for Constitutional Litigation representing plaintiff Alan Korwin and TrainMeAZ, LLC. TrainMeAZ is a coalition of firearm industry firms working together to promote gun safety. http://www.trainmeaz.com
The red-heart Guns Save Lives logo at the center of the case has been adopted as a theme for Gun Save Lives Day, a response to the events planned for restricting gun rights timed around the Newtown demonstrations. When this counter protest was announced, the lamestream media went apoplectic, spewing bile and vitriol at the pro-rights people.
Politico reported Monday Oct. 28 that weekly sessions on gun control have been held between the White House Office of Public Engagement and representatives from Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Guns, the Brady Campaign to Promote Gun Violence, Moms Demand Action, the Center for American Progress, Organizing for Action and Americans for Responsible Solutions. It is understood that demonstrations and calls for new restrictions on gun rights tied to the Newtown date are part of those planning sessions.
To the extent government operatives are at work compromising the Second Amendment instead of supporting it, they violate their oath and should be removed from office or brought up on charges. This may seem quaint but it matters. No one in government is taking any action against this fifth column-type of activity.

The demonization of free thinking individuals is about to begin. By branding Paul Ciancia a conspiracy theorist, all of us will come under scrutiny.
Anyone who does not believe wholeheartedly in the crap the government tries to feed them on a daily basis will become a danger to society.
It stands to reason that after a major public incidence of violence such as mass shootings or bombings, people want answers. It’s right and proper that these cases are investigated and as many answers as possible are provided to the citizens of this country.
Having said that, an alarming pattern is emerging,
Some events are highlighted and get massive coverage on television, on the internet and in the newspapers but most incidents do not.
Those that can’t be ‘spun’ by the government are given a couple of lines in the papers or a minute of airtime, and that’s it. Done. Gone. Forgotten.
The events that can be used by the government, get acres of print space and constant news coverage. In addition they always have a reason behind them that benefits the government in some way.
Let me show you what I mean. In 2012 88 people were killed in mass shootings in the United States. Sixteen mass shootings with 88 deaths.(source) Here’s the list:
February 22, 2012: Five people were killed in at a Korean health spa in Norcross, Georgia, when a man opened fire inside the facility in an act suspected to be related to domestic violence.
February 26, 2012: Multiple gunmen began firing into a nightclub in Jackson, Tennessee, killing one person and injuring 20 others.
February 27, 2012: Three students at Chardon High School in rural Ohio were killed when a classmate opened fire.
March 31, 2012: A gunman opened fire on a crowd of mourners at a North Miami, Florida funeral home, killing two people and injuring 12 others.
April 2, 2012: A 43-year-old former student at Oikos University in Oakland, California walked into his former school and killed seven people, “execution-style.” Three people were wounded.
April 6, 2012: Two men went on a deadly shooting spree in Tulsa, Oklahoma shooting black men at random in an apparently racially motivated attack. Three men died, and two were wounded.
May 29, 2012: A man in Seattle, Washington opened fire in a coffee shop killing five people and then himself.
July 9, 2012: At a soccer tournament in Wilmington, Delaware, three people were killed, including a 16-year-old player and the event organizer when multiple gunmen began firing shots, apparently targeting the organizer.
July 20, 2012: James Holmes enters a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises and opens fire with a semi-automatic weapon; twelve people are killed, and fifty-eight are wounded.
August 5, 2012: A white supremacist and Army veteran shot six people to death inside a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin before killing himself.
August 14, 2012: Three people were killed at Texas A&M University when a 35-year-old man went on a shooting rampage; one of the dead was a police officer.
September 27, 2012: A 36-year-old man who had just been laid off from Accent Signage Systems in Minneapolis, Minnesota entered his former workplace and shot five people to death and wounded three others before killing himself.
October 21, 2012: 45-year-old Radcliffe Frankin Haughton shot three women to death, including his wife, Zina Haughton, and injured four others at a spa in Brookfield, Wisconsin before killing himself.
All the cases that have made it big news wise have had a message from the government to us. These cases were chosen by the government to highlight the need for more gun control, more surveillance and tighter security. I believe that the ‘evidence’ for these events was tailored. Tailored to suit the governments needs at the time. To give the public a reason for the measures that will be imposed to ‘solve’ the problem. It was spun and nipped and tucked and most likely bears no resemblance to the original reasons behind the act.
With the LAX shooting they have gone a step further. In addition to once again raising the issue of privately owned assault rifles, they have put terms like ‘New World Order’ and ‘fiat currency’ into the wider public domain.
They are pre-conditioning the wider public in subjects usually confined to alternative media. The average Joe on the street is not familiar with these terms. But now the government itself has introduced them. They have publicly acknowledged them and linked them to the term ‘conspiracy theorist’.
A note allegedly found in the suspect’s bag said that he wanted to kill at least one transport officer with his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and didn’t care which one.
“Black, white, yellow, brown, I don’t discriminate,” the note read, according to a paraphrase by a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation.
The suspect’s screed also mentioned “fiat currency” and “NWO,” possible references to the New World Order, a conspiracy theory that foresees a one-world government.
I will bet my last dollar that in the very near future alternative media will be mentioned. Alternative media sites will be accused of spreading these messages.
We, the alternative media, both writers and readers are next on the list to be demonized. We are the next ‘issue’ that the government needs to find a solution to. Like gun control et al, we have become a target.
The government knows that the alternative media is growing. That more and more people are looking for answers that the main stream does not provide. This cannot be allowed. It is dangerous to a government that sees itself as omnipotent.
The ‘revelations’ that will come out over the next few days will most likely say that Paul Ciancia frequented alternative media websites and that these sites had a bearing on his actions.
Gone are the days when a man with a gun is just insane, vindictive or just plain bad and decides to shoot people. Now there always has to be a reason, and that reason always has to be one that will allow the government to ride in and rescue us.
It will always be a reason that gives them justification for exercising more control over our lives and this time the reason could well be us, the alternative media.
Josh Barry, the parent of an eighth grader at the East Pennsboro Area School District in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, told the Examiner that an assignment his eldest daughter brought home from school was clear political indoctrination.
After expressing his concerns to the school, a teacher he had never met contacted a mutual friend from Facebook and spoke disparagingly about the dedicated dad.
It all started when Barry, a vigilant parent, reviewed his daughter’s paperwork and was shocked to see a highly political assignment citing a New York Times article that blamed the Republicans for the government “shutdown,” along with a worksheet that accompanied the article.
The worksheet asked in part,
“Whom do you hold most responsible for the government shutdown?”
“Do you feel it is principled or irresponsible, for politicians to threaten a shutdown?”
“I was immediately disturbed by the slanted view on the topic as well as the amount of information that was left out of the article that was relevant to the discussion.”
Mr. Barry contacted his daughter’s American History teacher via email, and copied the school board.
He wrote in part,
“It is safe to say I am less than pleased with your non objective approach to education when it pertains to current political discussions in the classroom….Questions on your worksheet are pre-loaded with politically ideology and pre-loaded with incorrect premises.”
The American History teacher, Darin Yoder, responded in part,
“…The objective was not to promote any political agenda but to work on non-fiction reading skills. The article we used was a non-fiction article from the New York Times. The no-fiction [sic] skills were apparent in the article and the lesson. We allowed all students to share what they know about the government…”
After this dad responded to Mr. Yoder, the principal, Mr. Andrejack contacted Mr. Barry to schedule an appointment to discuss the situation. The principal said in part to Mr. Barry,
“As a parent myself who raised 4 boys, I take great offense to what you said.”
Clearly, the principal was not happy. But at least they were working on a solution.
Enter teacher Cydnee Cohen, who never met or spoke with Mr. Barry, but works at his daughter’s school. She is a mutual friend of one of Josh’s Facebook friends, and contacted the friend to presumably get information about Mr. Barry.
Ms. Cohen left a voicemail (click on the video to hear the voicemail) that said in part,
“We’re having some problems with a parent in our school district and on his page you are one of his friends…but I would like to know, some of it seems like he is a neo-nazi…call me…”
The mutual friend sent a text (see screenshot) to Cohen, saying that Josh is the “furthest thing” from a neo-nazi, as he is Jewish. Cohen responded, “he is tea party right wing!”
Barry told the Examiner that he is perplexed why Cohen would call him a neo nazi, but speculated that with the political atmosphere, many have a kneejerk reaction to those who believe in limited government and fiscal responsibility.
Mr. Barry’s speculation is not without merit, as President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and many others have made inaccurate and denigrating comments aimed at the Tea Party.
1 “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”
2 “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”
3 “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”
4 “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”
5 “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”
6 “Islam has always been part of America”
7 “We will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”
8 “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
9 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
10 “I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam.”
11 “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”
12 “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”
13 “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”
14 “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”
15 “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”
16 “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”
17 “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”
18 “We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants – farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.”
19 “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
20 “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”
Is the President consciously trying to find ways to out-do himself each morning? It feels like he may be sitting in the Oval Office of the White House scheming about what new things he can say or do to make his Presidency even more of a failure.
Business Insider has broken a story from a new book by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann called Double Down which is a follow up to their popular book from 2008 called Game Change. According to Double Down, which is a chronicle of the 2012 election, “President Barack Obama told his aides that he’s ‘really good at killing people’ while discussing drone strikes.”
Yeah, our President literally told the people who work for him that he is “really good at killing people.”
Look, the issue of using drones as assassin’s in the war on terror is a hot-button issue, and I realize a lot of good conservatives are for their use. (I am personally opposed to our use of drones – but I’m not arguing for or against them here.) The use of drones is not the problem with this little “joke” – the problem with the fact that the President of the United States would say something like this is that it illustrates for us the aloofness that is inherent in President Obama’s character.
War, death, killing… these should be topics for serious consideration and discussion.
In fact Barack Obama has ordered the killings of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people using drones. Human rights groups believe that the USA drastically underreports the deaths by drones that occur each year. That happens because of the amount of collateral damage that drone strikes cause, which also happens to be the chief reason so many are killed by drones.
So although President Obama has proven to be “really good at killing people,” the demonstration has not necessarily been noble.
And really, all of this leads us back to the real point. The President of the United States should be dignified, gracious and magnanimous. The President should show the character, fortitude and culture of his nation. Our President does none of this, and his “joke” to his aides proves this yet again. In fact, President Obama’s ability to joke about his role in the deaths of THOUSANDS is terrifying.
Even more, it’s not really a joke… he really ISgood at killing people.
The world expects more from America and her leaders, and we should too.

Patriots were once revered. Today, love for ideology has replaced patriotism. The Tea Party was founded in the spirit of the original tea party in Boston when “rabble rousers” dumped chests of tea into Boston Harbor. They protested a penny tax on tea when laborers sometimes made a few cents per day. We fought the French and Indian War as British citizens and Parliament spent a considerable amount on the conflict and needed to be repaid. Since most people drank tea, it was logical to raise a small tax on it to pay for the war. Like now, the people didn’t like paying higher taxes. The Revolution let us gain our freedom from England so we could become the greatest nation in the world.
Democrats are vicious attackers of today’s patriots. The Tea Party was founded to oppose Obamacare, higher taxes, and the expansion of the government. We have seen what nationalized health care in other countries has produced. There are long medical waiting times, reduction in care, and other costly problems. Obamacare is proving to be worse than predicted even though pre-existing conditions, something that would bankrupt many insurance companies, are being covered. If 5 million pre-existing medical conditions cost an average of $300,000 a year to cover, that would be a $15 trillion expense by 2023.
Elderly mothers who lost their brothers during WW II and their sons in Vietnam and still love America would agree that they pay too much in taxes. They also receive too little in Social Security payments because the system was not privatized a little to help the economy grow more. They paid into Medicare and expect it to be there when they need it. But since Obama transferred around $710 billion in Medicare funding to Obamacare and doctors are dropping out of the system (since the government isn’t paying them in full), the elderly mother who lost important men in her life is being punished by the government, even though she is a patriot.
When I hear Democrats say that Obamacare is the law, I hear “Dixie” because Democrats used to support slavery when it was the law of the land. The Republican Party was founded to oppose slavery since the Whigs weren’t doing enough to abolish it. Republicans fought the Civil War and gave blacks their civil rights in the Constitution. But Democrats in the South didn’t want to treat former property as equals. That is one reason why they stole civil rights from blacks (and it took decades for them to get their rights back.) Every time the Voting Rights Act is renewed (though according to the Constitution, the states aren’t allowed to abridge the rights of anyone to vote), it’s as if a scab is ripped from a wound that is healing. A bill that was paid over 130 years ago is being repaid every few years. We can thank Democrats in part for the suffering every time. Blacks who escape the Democrat plantation are being attacked by Democrats, even though they are patriots who care more for America than Liberal ideology. I have seen blacks in Tea Party gatherings who aren’t tokens (like what Democrats often treat blacks as.) Democrats are saying “forget about the lynchings our grandparents committed against blacks. Forget that pets were often treated better than blacks were.” The desire Democrats have to make people forget their ugly past convinces me that the donkey symbol for the party should be replaced by a wandering Alzheimer’s patient.
Do you support lower taxes because it would allow Americans to keep more of their money? Democrats would accuse you of being a Tea Party member. Do you think it’s wrong to pay much higher premiums for health care insurance because it is forced to cover too many conditions? Then you must be like Ted Cruz, who also opposes what a generation ago would also be opposed by most Americans. Do you think balancing your household budget makes so much sense that Washington should do the same thing? To Liberals, you are almost evil incarnate.
Patriots love America and want the best for it. They believe in fair play, justice for all, an American lifestyle that allows them to live a comfortable life until the day they die, high standards, and a moral society that doesn’t consider God a swear word. But Democrat leaders declare patriots as enemies of the state. That would include the elderly woman who proudly salutes the flag, sings the National Anthem when it is played, says “God bless you” to veterans who come her way, goes to church every Sunday to be nearer God, and complains when Washington wastes the money she sends to the government. To Democrats, such people should at least change with the times. Germans tried that when Hitler and the Nazi Party came to power. But that change brought the destruction of Germany.
Patriotism is being treated like a mental disorder, and Democrats want to commit a societal lobotomy to remove that portion of our brain. The removal of traditional patriotism from our minds is more than terrible. The soul of Americans will also be removed, which will allow this nation to be added to the list of empires and nations that have disintegrated. If Democrats get their way, patriotism that made America great will be exterminated as if it were a disease instead of a sustaining force for America.”
Obama Administration Says Treaties Trump the US Constitution
“The Obama administration is arguing before federal court that TREATIES should trump the CONSTITUTION… please SHARE this.His goal is total power. He wants to be able to bypass the constitution to regulate guns, the Internet, and who knows what else. This is tyranny. Barack Obama must be removed from office…
IMPEACH and CONVICT.
The Constitution is the standard we should evaluate treaties — and not the other way around. If a treaty violates the constitution, then the treaty was never signed in a legal manner in the first place.
Sen. Ted Cruz agrees. Remember, Ted Cruz was a Harvard lawyer who was a former law clerk under William Rehnquist, the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Here’s what the Washington Examiner reports:
Justice Department attorneys are advancing an argument at the Supreme Court that could allow the government to invoke international treaties as a legal basis for policies such as gun control that conflict with the U.S. Constitution, according to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
Their argument is that a law implementing an international treaty signed by the U.S. allows the federal government to prosecute a criminal case that would normally be handled by state or local authorities.
That is a dangerous argument, according to Cruz.
“The Constitution created a limited federal government with only specific enumerated powers,” Cruz told the Washington Examiner prior to giving a speech on the issue today at the Heritage Foundation.

“The Supreme Court should not interpret the treaty power in a manner that undermines this bedrock protection of individual liberty,” Cruz said.
In his speech, Cruz said the Justice Department is arguing “an absurd proposition” that “could be used as a backdoor way to undermine” Second Amendment rights, among other things.
Please note that just recently, Obama was pushing for an anti-gun UN treaty. This is NOT just theoretical danger — Obama intends to use treaties to attack the constitution and has made that very clear.
Ted Cruz is right, the Obama administration is wrong, and the constitution is under attack. Please spread the word about this… grassroots activism is our strongest defense at this point.”
This astonishing story below this morning from the Washington Times proves that the Chinese government has published nuclear devastation plans for America as shared in the story and graphic below. Does China and the world now see America as the new ‘axis of evil’, to be reckoned with via nuclear annihilation? With China’s ships now in Hawaiian waters as shared in this story from Mort Amsel, have American wars of aggression upon other nations begun to return to haunt us? Details of China’s plans are ‘chillingly macabre’ according to the Times story.:
“Because the Midwest states of the U.S. are sparsely populated, in order to increase the lethality, [our] nuclear attacks should mainly target the key cities on the West Coast of the United States, such as Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego,” the Global Times said.
Several videos detailing China’s new nuclear submarines are below including China’s nuclear warning to Barack Obama.
Chinese state-run media revealed for the first time this week that Beijing’s nuclear submarines can attack American cities as a means to counterbalance U.S. nuclear deterrence in the Pacific.
On Monday, leading media outlets including China Central TV, the People’s Daily, the Global Times, the PLA Daily, the China Youth Daily and the Guangmin Daily ran identical, top-headlined reports about the “awesomeness” of the People’s Liberation Army navy’s strategic submarine force.
“This is the first time in 42 years since the establishment of our navy’s strategic submarine force that we reveal on such a large scale the secrets of our first-generation underwater nuclear force,” theGlobal Times said in a lengthy article titled “China for the First Time Possesses Effective Underwater Nuclear Deterrence against the United States.”
The article features 30 photos and graphics detailing, among other things, damage projections for Seattle and Los Angeles after being hit by Chinese nuclear warheads and the deadly radiation that would spread all the way to Chicago.
China’s sub fleet is reportedly the world’s second-largest, with about 70 vessels. About 10 are nuclear-powered, and four or more of those are nuclear ballistic submarines capable of launching missiles.
Google takes secrecy to new heights with mystery barge – Yahoo News Canada.
By Ronnie Cohen and Alexei Oreskovic
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – How badly does Google want to keep under wraps a mysterious project taking shape on a barge in San Francisco Bay? Badly enough to require U.S. government officials to sign confidentiality agreements.
At least one Coast Guard employee has had to sign a non-disclosure agreement with the Internet giant, said Barry Bena, a U.S. Coast Guard spokesman. Another person who would only identify himself as an inspector for a California government agency had to do the same.
Moored in the shadow of the Bay Bridge off of Treasure Island, a former military base, the nondescript barge is stacked several stories high with white shipping containers, and sprouts what appear to be antennas on top. The hulking structure, half shrouded in scaffolding, has stirred intense speculation in the…

Lara: We had to make sure we weren’t used by anyone on the Left or the Right who had a political agenda. That was our biggest concern. Journalism is not about making a case, it’s about finding the facts. In this story, you had to work really hard to find the facts and not be seduced by anybody. So, we left about 98 percent of what we learned on the floor– didn’t even report it– because unless we could substantiate it with primary sources that we truly trusted and whose motivations we trusted, then we didn’t even go there.
