Obama shuffles military's mission in Africa and will be sending 3,000 troops into Ebola danger zone



Obama shuffles military's mission in Africa and will be sending 3,000 troops into Ebola danger zone


- The Obama administration said late Monday night that the U.S. military will set up a command post in Monrovia, Liberia, the Ebola outbreak's epicenter

- 'This effort ... will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces,' according to the White House

- Pentagon official says military will 'be the lead dog, and that will make a lot of people nervous. ... No one wants U.S. personnel enforcing someone else's martial law if things go south and the entire region is at risk'


- U.S. Africa Command warns servicemen and women: 'Avoid nonessential travel to Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia'


- Pentagon is drawing flak for sending 25-bed 'field-deployable hospital' that is meant to treat health care workers, not civilian victims


Obama is sending thousands of military troops to the west African nation of Liberia as part of the Obama administration's Ebola virus-response strategy, the White House said late Monday night.

'U.S. Africa Command will set up a Joint Force Command headquartered in Monrovia, Liberia, to provide regional command and control support to U.S. military activities and facilitate coordination with U.S. government and international relief efforts,' a statement from the White House press office said.

'A general from U.S. Army Africa, the Army component of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will lead this effort, which will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces.'

Liberia is the hardest-hit of the four west African nations that have confirmed Ebola cases, accounting for more than one-half of the fatalities. The others are Sierra Leone, Guinea and, to a lesser extent, Nigeria.


Some of what America's armed personnel will do in Liberia is unclear. The White House said 'many' of them will be stationed at an 'intermediate staging base' where they will supervise the movement of medical staff, supplies and heavy equipment.

AFRICOM already warns its own personnel that they should 'avoid nonessential travel to Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia.'

And the Defense Department is concerned, one Pentagon official told MailOnline, about the public perceptions aroused when American G.I.s patrol ground zero in a disease outbreak that could plunge three or more countries into chaos if it worsens significantly.

Combat soldiers and Marines 'will be on hand and ready for anything,' said the official, who has knowledge of some, but not all, of the Ebola-related planning. 'But hopefully it will be all logistics and hospital-building.'

'The president has ordered us to help, and we're eager to do it,' he said. 'Now it looks like we're going to be the lead dog, and that's bound to make a lot of people nervous. It's understandable.'

'But no one wants U.S. personnel enforcing someone else's martial law if things go south and the entire region is at risk.'



Wild Thing's comment...........

I have a question. What happens when our troops get killed by Ebola. This is so dangerous what Obama is doing.

Notice Obama will not take a fact finding trip to tour the Ebola plagued areas himself.

Hey POS Obama, keep our people out of there, unless of course you want to import that crap here, which is obvious that you do.

State Dept. WITHHELD damaging documents from Benghazi investigation




State Dept. WITHHELD damaging documents from Benghazi investigation

A former State Department official, now retired, says that Hillary Clinton staffers, on a weekend in 2012, separated out damaging documents in the basement of the State Dept. before documents were turned over to the Accountability Review Board. They were under orders to do it to protect the 7th floor, i.e. Hillary Clinton.




Wild Thing's comment.............


This behavior by Hillary to cover up and avoid any poor decisions in Benghazi, Libya is her MO. It's been over 22 years ago but this same behavior by then 1st lady by confiscation of FBI files on individuals who would be deemed her enemies (enemies list).

Hillary allies secretly removed Benghazi documents damaging to her on Benghazi



Hillary allies secretly removed Benghazi documents damaging to her .

According to one of the four officials punished and then cleared by the State Department for the failures that led to the death of 4 American in Benghazi, Hillary allies kept the ARB from seeing some of the most importnat documentation related to the terror attack. Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell spoked to Sharyl Attkisson that the operation was supervised by advisers within Hillary Clinton’s inner circle.

Hillary Clinton’s minions launched a weekend operation in the basement of the State Department to scrub damning documents related to the Benghazi attacks that killed a US Ambassador, a top former official has charged.

Then-Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell said he walked in uninvited to the Sunday afternoon scene a month after the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist strike to find several boxes of papers — and immediately asked an office director what was happening.

Pathetic Obama Whines He Isn’t Treated Like Ronald Reagan




Obama Whines He Isn’t Treated Like Ronald Reagan

Obama also is evidently feeling a bit of Reagan envy:

At one point, Mr. Obama noted acidly that President Ronald Reagan sent Marines to Lebanon only to have hundreds of them killed in a terrorist attack because of terrible planning, and then withdrew the remaining ones, leaving behind a civil war that lasted years. But Reagan, he noted, is hailed as a titan striding the earth.
“Well, Reagan won the cold war,” replies blogger John Hinderaker. “If Obama can win the war against Muslim terrorists, we will hail him as a titan striding the earth, too.” And it’s not as if Reagan was spared harsh criticism in his day.

The Times story concludes with a quote from Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, who attended the Monday dinner: “[Obama] clearly falls on the side of those who are slow or reluctant to decide because deciding often forces you into a more one-sided position than you’re comfortable with.” Oddly, Haass doesn’t seem to intend that as a criticism.

Judge Pirro : Obama Golfing After 3rd Beheading & Being “Truly Clueless” After Failed Rescue Attempt


The Judge continued, on her special Sunday edition show, where she left off from her previous show blasting obama’s weak leadership under the ISIS threat to America and the world. Obama is more concerned at being relaxed and on vacation than handle the nation’s business. The golfer in chief is completely disconnected from reality at this point showing zero signs of leadership. Everything is political to obama and this guy is more worried about his optics domestically but internationally. He is telling the world “you don’t have to fear America anymore”. Pirro runs through a list of failures:
– apology tour
– his admin ignoring calls for help in Benghazi leaving four Americans for dead
– reducing our military to pre-World War II level
– signaling the US is not a superpower

… all of which have sent a clear message of weakness to ISIS and our enemies around the world.

Disgusting CBS Sports Rejects Ad Featuring Child Reciting Pledge Of Allegiance As “Too Political”





CBS Sports Rejects Ad Featuring Child Reciting Pledge Of Allegiance As “Too Political”…

FOX News

Do you think a four-year-old girl reciting the Pledge of Allegiance is terribly offensive?

Apparently, CBS Sports Network does.

The national cable sports network rejected a 30-second television advertisement from Windermere Real Estate that shows company owner Dave Retter’s adorable granddaughter delivering the pledge with her hand over her heart.

CBS Sports said the ad was “too political” to air during the network’s upcoming broadcast of the Wrangler Champions Challenge rodeo.


“If you find that offensive, you are totally out of touch with the rest of the country,” Tucker Carlson said on Fox and Friends Weekend today.

“You would have to be an out-of-touch network executive to believe that is political. Political on behalf of what? What is she advocating?”


The Tri-City Herald reported:


The event is part of a commitment to increase the popularity of rodeo. The made-for-TV series began in 2013, featuring 10 top competitors nationwide in each of the seven events and the sport's best livestock.


"We just thought it's around Sept. 11, Patriot Day, and rodeo is as patriotic a sport as it comes," Retter told the Herald. "We've had so many positive responses, we felt it would be fun to run something positive."


Jordan Bradley, a contact between local officials and the network, emailed fair director Lori Lancaster on Thursday, saying CBS Sports rejected the ad because of its "political nature."

This was the first time Dave Praino, co-owner of PS Media, has had an issue like this with one of his client's ads.

"It's amazing," he said. "I'm still trying to scratch my head to figure out what's political about the Pledge of Allegiance."


Praino tried to get answers from CBS Sports, but has not heard back. "We can't even get a return phone call," he said.

CBS Sports representatives also did not return messages left by the Herald Thursday afternoon.

Retter wanted to run the commercial, called "Our Future," during the rodeo instead of promoting his company. It is one of two local businesses to sponsor the broadcast, along with the fair.


"Who cares about buying a home in Kennewick on national TV?" he explained.


The commercial, which has been aired during patriotic holidays for about a year-and-a-half, would be a great way to let the national audience get a look at the Tri-Cities, Praino said.

Muslim Group Breaking: ISIS Beheads British Hostage David Haynes- Next Victim Announced – Brit Alan Henning






Breaking: ISIS Beheads British Hostage David Haynes- Next Victim Announced – Brit Alan Henning


ISIS militants released video claiming to be the beheading of British hostage David Cawthorne Haynes on Saturday.


The Mirror


Islamic State militants have released footage claiming to show the beheading of British hostage David Haines.

The aid worker, 44, was captured by ISIS in Syria in March 2013.

The plight of the dad-of-two was revealed when he appeared at the end of a video showing the beheading of US journalist Steven Sotloff earlier this month.

ISIS had threatened to kill Mr Haines if world leaders do not bow to their demands.

Tonight, the extremists posted a new video lasting 2minutes and 30 seconds which appears to show the beheading of David Haines.

Obama's ai campaign in Syria to stop Islamic State is over before it has even started. Germany has said it won't join the air campaign. The UK is giving mixed signals. Turkey is not going to help and the Saudis well they are not doing much either. And vulnerable Dems don't want to vote on a war resolution either. And the money for Obama's attack is not there either.




Wild Thing's comment...............

Muslim Obama really does not want to go after any of his fellow Muslim groups.

IMO our country is more in danger of what Obama does and his administration than any group of terrorists. His agenda effects our entire country.

The terrorists need to be wiped off the face of the earth but that is not something Obama wants to do.

Corrupt and Pushing Illegals on us,Mexico Condemns Texas Gov. Rick Perry For “Irresponsible” Deployment Of National Guard Troops To Border



Mexico Condemns Texas Gov. Rick Perry For “Irresponsible” Deployment Of National Guard Troops To Border…


Thursday, 11 September 2014

The Government of Mexico deeply rejects and condemns the deployment of troops from the Texas National Guard to the border, announced today by the office of the governor of that state, Rick Perry.

Mexico underscores that it is irresponsible to manipulate border security for political reasons. We insist that the phenomenon of migration should be managed from a holistic and regional perspective through a medium term vision with shared responsibility which guarantees peace, inclusion and prosperity in the region.

The unilateral measure taken by the government of Texas is undoubtedly mistaken and does not contribute to the efforts in which our two countries are engaged to build a safe border and create a solution to the phenomenon of migration. The measure will not lead to greater understanding between our societies, and it stands in opposition to the values and principles by which Mexico and the United States govern our bilateral relationship.

Total Insanity! 5th Grader Banned From Using ChapStick at School Because it's Considered An 'Over-The-Counter Drug'


Virginia: 5th Grader Banned From Using ChapStick at School Because it's Considered An 'Over-The-Counter Drug'


An 11-year-old girl whose lips became so chapped they bled at school is now petitioning the district to let her use lip balm.

Grace Karaffa, a fifth-grader at Stuarts Draft Elementary School in Virginia, has suffered from dry lips for years and and repeatedly her requests for ChapStick have been turned down because the district considers the ointment an 'over-the-counter drug' that requires a doctor's note and must be held by the school nurse.

After a particularly painful episode, when Karaffa was refused ChapStick yet again and had to wet her cracking lips in the bathroom sink, she decided it was time to take action.

She started a petition which received over 300 signatures, and presented it in front of the August County school board last week.

Grace asked the board to consider changing the policy, calling it 'inappropriate'. Her father, David Karaffa, serves as Beverly Manor district supervisor.

'I don't believe there is anything inside a generic ChapStick that would be classified as a drug,' he told Fox News. 'We would like the exception to be made so that kids in school can carry ChapStick.'

After her speech, the board cross-examined Karaffa with one member pointing out that the lip balm could be considered a distraction in class.

Students can still use ChapStick, but they must first obtain a doctor's note, and then it must be kept in the nurse's office and applied there.

CIA: Muslim Group ISIS RANKS SWELL TO 31,500


CIA: ISIS RANKS SWELL TO 31,500...


A CIA assessment puts the number of ISIS fighters at possibly more than three times the previous estimates.

The terror group that calls itself the Islamic State "can muster between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters across Iraq and Syria," a CIA spokesman told CNN on Thursday.


"This new total reflects an increase in members because of stronger recruitment since June following battlefield successes and the declaration of a caliphate, greater battlefield activity and additional intelligence," the spokesman said.


It's unclear how the ISIS ranks swelled, and whether the increased numbers include recruits from within Iraq.

More than 15,000 foreign fighters, including 2,000 Westerners, have gone to Syria, a CIA source told CNN on Thursday. The fighters come from more than 80 countries, the source said.

It's not immediately clear whether these were primarily ISIS fighters or were dispersed among a number of groups fighting the Syrian government.

Obama Forgetting Qur'an Instructs To Kill and Slaughter..He Lectures Followers of Islam ISIS on His Take on Proper Islamic Behavior (Video)



Obama Lectures Followers of Islam ISIS on Proper Islamic Behavior


Wild Thing's comment..........


Obama needs to read his Qur'an and the many verses in it telling followers how to kill Jews and Christians and other Muslims not following Islam the terrorist way.


Qur’an 33:60 “Truly, if the Hypocrites stir up sedition,
if the agitators in the City do not desist, We shall urge
you to go against them and set you over them. They shall
have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall
be seized and slain without mercy—a fierce
slaughter—murdered, a horrible murdering.”

Qur’an 8:12 “I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their
bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”

Ishaq:327 “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before
collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land.
Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and
the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires
killing them to manifest the religion.’”

Qur’an 59:2 “It was Allah who drove the [Jewish] People of the Book
from their homes and into exile. They refused to believe and imagined
that their strongholds would protect them against Allah. But Allah came
at them from where they did not suspect, and filled their hearts with terror.
Their homes were destroyed. So learn a lesson, O men who have eyes.
This is My warning…they shall taste the torment of Fire.”

Ishaq:580 “Our strong warriors obey his orders to the letter.
By us Allah’s religion is undeniably strong. You would think when
our horses gallop with bits in their mouths that the sounds of demons
are among them. The day we trod down the unbelievers there was no
deviation or turning from the Apostle’s order. During the battle the
people heard our exhortations to fight and the smashing of skulls by
swords that sent heads flying. We severed necks with a warrior’s blow.
Often we have left the slain cut to pieces and a widow crying alas
over her mutilated husband. ’Tis Allah, not man we seek to please.”

Tabari IX:69 “He who believes in Allah and His Messenger
has protected his life and possessions from us. As for those
who disbelieve, we will fight them forever in the Cause of Allah.
Killing them is a small matter to us.”

“Barack Obama’s shabby pretense at a strategy as laid out tonight will not defeat and destroy the Islamic State. By the way, it is Islamic, and it is a nation state with a caliphate… Does he really believe he’s going to build a coalition. He has nine states so far, Bush had 48, 40 of which contributed troops in 2004. He has nine states none of which are willing to fight… It’s so pathetic, that I actually got to control my anger and simply say it’s idiotic nonsense.“

CAIR Tells Obama To Declare ISIS Has Nothing To Do With Islam During Address To Nation



CAIR Tells Obama To LIE and Declare ISIS Has Nothing To Do With Islam During Address To Nation


The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants President Obama in his speech on ISIS Wednesday night to reject the jihadists’ “misappro-priation of Islamic terms and concepts,” and to recognize that the terrorist group was created by “the lack of freedom and justice in the region.”

CAIR leaders plan to join other local and national Muslim leaders in a Capitol Hill viewing of Obama’s prime-time address to the nation on a strategy to counter the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL) threat.

CAIR’s national executive director Nihad Awad made it clear what Muslims in the U.S. will be looking out for in the speech.

“American Muslims will evaluate the president’s strategy based on his willingness to reject ISIS’ misappropriation of Islamic terms and concepts, his clear support for the mainstream opposition to Syria’s murderous regime, his insistence on a non-sectarian government in Iraq, and his recognition that ISIS was created and is fueled by the lack of freedom and justice in the region,” he said.


Wild Thing's comment............

LOL good luck with people believing that. We have all learned about Islam especially after 9-11.

ISIS stands for ISLAMIC States of Iraq and Syria

Then what do they mean when they say "convert or die". They aren't talking about freedom and justice. They are talking about Islam. Call it what it is. C.A.I.R. CAIR's ties to the Muslim Brotherhood are beyond dispute.

I applaud Senator Cruz for standing up for Israel. Cruz was "booed off the stage" at an event hosted by a purportedly Christian organization








Ted Cruz: Hatred, Bigotry, Opposition to Israel Led to Me Leaving Event


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was "booed off the stage" at an event hosted by a purportedly Christian organization.

Cruz, the keynote speaker at the new "In Defense Of Christians" organization's dinner in Washington DC, had offered the crowd--a number of whom were Christians from the Middle East, including Palestinian Christians--public support for Israel. After doing so, some members of the crowd booed at Cruz, and they persisted until he left the stage, noting their hatred and saying he can't stand with them if they don't stand with Israel.

"Tonight, in Washington, should have been a night of unity as we came together for the inaugural event for a group that calls itself 'In Defense of Christians.' Instead, it unfortunately deteriorated into a shameful display of bigotry and hatred," Cruz said in a statement provided to Breitbart News. "When I spoke in strong support of Israel and the Jewish people, who are being persecuted and murdered by the same vicious terrorists who are also slaughtering Christians, many Christians in the audience applauded. But, sadly, a vocal and angry minority of attendees at the conference tried to shout down my expression of solidarity with Israel."


Cruz continued in his statement by noting that detractors "cannot shout down the truth," and the American people "should not shy away from expressing the truth, even in the face of--especially in the face of--ignorance and bigotry."

"I told the attendees that those who hate Israel also hate America," Cruz said. "That those who hate Jews also hate Christians. And that anyone who hates Israel and the Jewish people is not following the teachings of Christ. These statements were met with angry boos. I went on to tell the crowd that Christians in the Middle East have no better friend than Israel. That Christians can practice their faith free of persecution in Israel. And that ISIS, al Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah, along with their state sponsors in Syria and Iran, are all part of the same cancer, murdering Christians and Jews alike. Hate is hate, and murder is murder."

Cruz said he wanted to speak at this event to highlight the threat of ISIS to Christians and Jews worldwide, and he is disappointed that the people there did not agree with him on that.

"I came to this event tonight to help shine a light on the tragic persecution and slaughter of Christians by ISIS and Islamic radicals throughout the Middle East. American leaders have been far too silent as to this horrific evil," Cruz said. "But bigotry and hatred have no place in this discussion. Antisemitism is a corrosive evil, and it reared its ugly head tonight."

Because of the "bigotry and hatred," Cruz said he had to leave the event.

"After just a few minutes, I had no choice," Cruz said. "I told them that if you will not stand with Israel, if you will not stand with the Jews, then I will not stand with you. And then I walked off the stage."


Wild Thing's comment............


God bless Ted Cruz. What vile horrible people they were at this event. A bunch of phony Christians and their hate for Israel.

Healthcare Expert: Obamacare's 'Quiet Summer' is About to End in a Big Way



Healthcare Expert: Obamacare's 'Quiet Summer' is About to End in a Big Way


One major reason for the enduring opposition is that the law has violated virtually every major promise erected in dishonest ideologues’ sales pitch. Another is that an ongoing parade of unpleasant developments continues to make headlines, including the recent revelation that Healthcare.gov was hacked last month. Apologists can cherry-pick useful data points to try to convince the public that Obamacare is reducing premium costs and driving down costs, but that’s simply not the case.


To say this fall's 2015 Obamacare open-enrollment has the potential to be problematic is an understatement. The HealthCare.gov backroom is not built yet––a year and counting after it should have been. How many people are enrolled in Obamacare? Without a government to insurance company accounting system yet built, no one knows. While the open-enrollment is now scheduled to begin until 11 days after the November election there will be plenty of renewal and cancellation letters going out in October––not the least will be more pre-Obamacare policies being cancelled this year now that their one-year extension is up––carriers aren't necessarily allowing policies to be extended further...Does this all sound confusing? Just wait until we approach the next open-enrollment with millions of people hearing about all of this complexity and having just four weeks to get their enrollment validated for January 1. The Obamacare anxiety index is going to be off the charts well before November 15th. Add to all of this bigger deductibles for 2015 (those go up with cost trend as well as the rates) and more narrow networks as well as generally larger rate increases for the plans that got the most enrollment and there will be lots to talk about...The last couple of months have been very quiet for Obamacare. That is about to end.

Obama State Department To Take Down ISIS With New Social Media Campaign



Obama State Department To Take Down ISIS With New Social Media Campaign


FOX News.


The State Department is launching a tough and graphic propaganda counteroffensive against the Islamic State, using some of the group's own images of barbaric acts against fellow Muslims to undercut its message.

While the department since 2011 has operated a small unit devoted solely to the task of analyzing and countering terrorists’ messaging around the world, that unit – the 50-member Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications -- has shifted gears in recent months to concentrate more on the Islamic State threat.

The social media presence – on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and beyond – has started using some potentially risky tactics to go after the militant network, also known as ISIS.

The item grabbing the most attention lately is a shock factor-heavy YouTube video set up as a fake recruiting ad for the Islamic State.

“Run – do not walk to ISIS Land,” the video implores viewers. The video tells recruits they can learn “useful new skills” -- like “blowing up mosques” and “crucifying and executing Muslims.” (WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO)

Illustrating the sarcastic appeal is an array of bloody images and videos, including of people being crucified, decapitated heads arranged next to each other, and mosques being blown up.

The “ad” ends with the line: “Travel is inexpensive, because you won’t need a return ticket!”

Not everyone thinks the “ad” is an effective tool.

“I just thought it was bizarre,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told Fox News, dismissing the video as a symptom of “press release foreign policy” that is “fundamentally unserious.”

But a State Department spokesperson said the work is vital “given how violent extremists are increasingly exploiting the suffering caused by global conflicts to lure susceptible youth” to join.

“We believe countering our adversaries in this space is critical. We must contest the space by confronting distortion with reality and lies with truth,” the spokesperson told FoxNews.com.

The video is part of the State Department’s “Think again. Turn away” campaign aimed at convincing would-be recruits not to join.

The effort comes as the Obama administration comes under fire from critics who say it waited too long to act against the Islamic State, despite clear evidence the group was gaining a startling amount of territory – and military equipment -- in northern Iraq and Syria earlier this year.

“His policy so far has been a policy of containment, not of defeat,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, told “Fox News Sunday.”

22 House Dems Vote With GOP To Condemn Obama Over Bergdahl Prisoner Swap


The House voted 249-163 to disapprove of President Barack Obama’s transfer of five Guantanamo Bay detainees for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, providing a soft rebuke of the president’s actions on the prisoner swap.

On the nonbinding resolution vote, 22 Democrats joined all 227 voting Republicans to condemn the administration for not providing the 30 days of notice required by law before transferring a prisoner at the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center.

Armed Services Chairman Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif., called the prisoner swap an “obvious” violation of the law, and he said Congress needed to understand the national security risks posed by transferring detainees before such a swap takes place.

Good but just one thing, it is late now for it to make a difference. Too bad things take so long to happen when trying to fight back.

Obama's State Dept: Members Of Terrorist Groups Wouldn’t Automatically Lose Their Passports



Obama's State Dept: Members Of Terrorist Groups Wouldn’t Automatically Lose Their Passports

FOX News

Being a member of a terrorist group is apparently not grounds for revoking an American passport, Trace Gallagher reported tonight on “The Kelly File.”

On Sept. 2, when asked if joining a designated terrorist group is something for which you can lose your passport, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said, “It’s not as black and white as that.”

But yesterday, State Department deputy spokesperson Marie Harf said that being a member of a designated terrorist organization “does not automatically mean your passport will be revoked.”

Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney was on “The Kelly File” to discuss this issue.

“If you are a member of a terrorist group, you are aiding and abetting the enemy. Aiding and abetting the enemy is treason against our Constitution. So it would seem to me that automatically, even without having a trial, that your passport should be revoked. Automatically,” he said.

McInerney said we need legislation to clearly delineate “that you don’t go to Syria to study the Quran and be a member of a terrorist group.”

“We have a problem and we need to get it fixed,” he said.

When I say I can't be shocked again by something Obama and his people do, I am wrong. It never stops this being shocked.

Jonah Goldberg on Obama’s foreign policy: Obama says whatever it takes to get people off his back




Jonah Goldberg on Obama’s foreign policy: Obama says whatever it takes to get people off his back


Obama really does believe in his own rhetoric so much that he thinks just saying the right words is enough to address a problem, and with a complicit media, he’s kinda right. Jonah continues, “Obama can say the most ridiculous things… and people say, let’s give him another try!”


Wild Thing's comment..........

Good one Jonah, I agree and that is exactly what happens.

Each time there has been an Obama scandal or corruption he says they are looking into it and then he also proceeds to attack the republicans and says it is made up.

Gun Shop Ordered By NY State Police To Turn Over Customer Records Or Face A Swat Raid





Gun Shop Ordered By NY State Police To Turn Over Customer Records Or Face A Swat Raid


The owner of a New York gun shop says he was given 24 hours to comply with a “request” from the New York State Police to turn over records of all customers who have purchased “bullet button” AR-15 rifles since the passage of the hastily-passed SAFE Act in 2013.

Joseph F. Palumbo, owner of the Albion Gun Shop in Albion, New York, told TheBlaze on Wednesday he had no choice but to turn over roughly 165 customer records last week. Now, both he and his customers are concerned that “door-to-door confiscation” or “warrantless searches” could come next.


An AR-15 with a “bullet button” modification makes it so the rifle’s magazine is not detachable without a special tool. Though the legality of bullet button semi-automatic rifles appears to murky under the SAFE Act’s unclear definition of a “detachable” magazine, Palumbo said he was only recently informed in “vague” terms that the weapons he sold are not compliant under the law.

It is illegal to purchase or sell semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines in New York following the passage of the SAFE Act. Rifles obtained before the gun control law was passed are required to be registered with the state government. The law also limits all magazine capacity to 10 rounds, regardless of when they were made or purchased.


Palumbo claimed he was told by an undercover officer that police first considered raiding his business with an armed SWAT Team to retrieve the records. The lead investigator, however, opted to take a more peaceful approach, he said.

Palumbo told TheBlaze he’s not entirely sure why law enforcement officials suddenly became focused on his business. He said there have been rumors that his gun shop came under scrutiny after police received an anonymous complaint via the NY SAFE “Tipline” that promises a $500 reward to anyone who provides information leading to an arrest under the gun control law. He also said he’s heard rumors that an anti-gun group could be responsible.

After he was initially informed by the undercover officer that the state police wanted the customer records related to the modified AR-15 rifles, Palumbo said police didn’t want to return to his gun shop and requested that the list be sent via email. He said he reluctantly complied because his hands were tied due to the restrictive provisions found in the SAFE Act and he realized a SWAT team could raid his store and confiscate all of his inventory.

Palumbo said the SAFE Act gives police unprecedented authority to investigate cases involving so-called “assault weapons.”

A New York state trooper allegedly called back after receiving the customer list and requested phone numbers as well, information which Palumbo said he doesn’t have.

“They did not tell us anything else,” he told TheBlaze. “I have a lot of customers concerned that the cops are going to come kick their doors down or conduct warrantless searches. … It’s something I am worried about, it’s something my attorney is worried about, it’s something my customers are worried about.”

Palumbo told TheBlaze that he consulted a hotline set up by the state police in 2013 about the legality of AR-15 rifles with the bullet button modification under the SAFE Act. He said he was told that the guns should be OK, but they never gave him a definitive answer.

The gun store owner has since hired a “very good” attorney specializing in the Second Amendment and hopes to resolve the matter in a timely fashion. Palumbo said he doesn’t want to have to spend large amounts of money to sue New York state over the incident, but he is “more than prepared” to do so if that’s what it takes to protect his customers and business.

“Obviously in New York, our state is totally screwed up,” he added. “You are constantly on eggshells — not even just with this incident. Every time you turn around and there’s a shooting, every time there’s a gun-related incident, you sit back and think, ‘Oh gosh, what are the going to ban next?’”

Obama Delays Immigration Action Until After Election


Obama Delays Immigration Action Until After Election

Abandoning his pledge to act by the end of summer, President Barack Obama has decided to delay any executive action on immigration until after the November congressional elections, White House officials said.

The move is certain to infuriate immigration advocates while offering relief to some vulnerable Democrats in tough Senate re-election contests.

Two White House officials said Obama concluded that circumventing Congress through executive actions on immigration during the campaign would politicize the issue and hurt future efforts to pass a broad overhaul.

The officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the president's decision before it was announced, said Obama made his decision Friday as he returned to Washington from a NATO summit in Wales.

They said Obama called a few allies from Air Force One and informed them of his decision, and that the president made more calls from the White House on Saturday.

The officials said Obama had no specific timeline to act, but that he still would take his executive steps before the end of the year.

In a Rose Garden speech on June 30, Obama said he had directed Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Attorney General Eric Holder to give him recommendations for executive action by the end of summer. Obama also pledged to "adopt those recommendations without further delay."

Obama faced competing pressures from immigration advocacy groups that wanted prompt action and from Democrats worried that acting now would energize Republican opposition against vulnerable Senate Democrats. Among those considered most at risk were Democratic Sens. Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and Kay Hagan of North Carolina.

Obama advisers were not convinced that any presidential action would affect the elections. But the officials said the discussions around the timing grew more pronounced within the past few weeks.


Wild Thing's comment........

He will do what he wants to do and when he wants to do it. With his Dreamers act he has brought thousands more illegals to our country, notice how he makes a mess of everything. Obama and the illegals should be deported.

Obama: ‘I Intend to Take Action’ on ILLEGAL Immigration

Obama: DHS Chief, Eric Holder Giving Me Immigration Recommendations


“.. in the absence of Congressional action, I intend to take action to make sure that we’re putting more resources on the border. That we’re upgrading how we process these cases and that we find a way to encourage legal immigration…”


There he goes again lying to justify another power grab when there was Congressional action on putting more resources on the border. The House passed a bill for more border funding but the Senate went on vacation instead of staying in DC to vote on it.

Corrupt Obama keeping up with his destruction of our country.

Michael Reagan: My Father Didn't Need 'International Community'






"Ronald Reagan wasn't looking for cover from the international community"

If Ronald Reagan were president today, he would handle the Islamic State (ISIS) threat very differently, and he certainly wouldn't be looking for "cover" from the "international community," Michael Reagan tells Newsmax TV.

In 1986, Reagan ordered airstrikes against terrorist and military targets in Libya after two American servicemen were killed in the bombing of a nightclub in Berlin that was linked to the North African country. Libya had also killed five Americans when it attacked airports in Rome and Vienna.


"For us to ignore by inaction, the slaughter of American civilians and American soldiers, whether in nightclubs or airline terminals is simply not in the American tradition," Ronald Reagan said in a speech he gave about the reason for the attack on April 14, 1986.

"When our citizens are abused or attacked anywhere in the world on the direct orders of a hostile regime, we will respond so long as I'm in this Oval Office," he added.

On Wednesday, while President Barack Obama was speaking in Estonia about how the United States plans to handle the growing threat of ISIS, the group that has beheaded two American journalists, he said, "We know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL's sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem."

By comparison, the son of the 40th president told J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" Friday that "you did not hear within my father's statement anything to do with the 'international community.'"

"He was the president of the United States. Barack Obama's trying to be president of I don't know what, certainly not the United States of America," Michael Reagan said.


"He wants cover from the international community to be able to do what is in fact correct," he said. "Ronald Reagan wasn't looking for cover from the international community.

"He was sworn to uphold the laws and protect the citizens of the United States of America no matter where they lived, and that's exactly what he did," Michael Reagan said. "That is the major difference between the two of them."


The conservative political commentator said it was a major error for Obama to admit that he has no plan on how to deal with ISIS.

"To announce he had no plan, even if he had a plan, to announce he had no plan does not help the United States of America against ISIS and terrorism throughout the globe," Michael Reagan said.


"My father . . . didn't announce what he was going to do," he said. "He just, in the middle of the night, sent a couple of planes into Tripoli, took out a couple of the homes real quick and [Moammar] Gadhafi stayed quiet for 20-plus years.


"Sometimes just an action of that nature can solve so many of your problems," he added.

Our country desperately needs someone like President Ronald Reagan.

President George W. Bush's ‘Frighteningly Accurate’ Prediction in 2007 on What Would Happen If We Pulled Out of Iraq







George W. Bush's ‘Frighteningly Accurate’ Prediction in 2007 on What Would Happen If We Pulled Out of Iraq

.....Pres. Bush’s Prophetic Iraq Warning, 7/12/07


BUSH: I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now. To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we're ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States....

-It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al Qaeda.

-It mean that we'd be risking mass killings on a horrific scale.

-It would mean we allowed a terrorist to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan.

- It would mean increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous




Wild Thing's comment.............

Bush was right about the entire thing.
