1,000 Soldiers From The 82nd Airborne Headed To Iraq




1,000 Soldiers From The 82nd Airborne Headed To Iraq

Stars and Stripes


Approximately 1,000 paratroopers from the Army’s famed 82nd Airborne Division will deploy to Iraq early next year to help the Iraqi security forces take on the Islamic State, the Pentagon announced Friday.

The soldiers from the 82nd’s 3rd Brigade Combat Team, based at Fort Bragg, N.C., will begin to deploy in late January to train, advise and assist the ISF, Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby told reporters.

Their mission is part of the coalition effort to build up the Iraqi army and Kurdish peshmerga so that they can recapture territory from Islamic State militants.

The paratroopers are preparing for a nine-month deployment, according to a spokeswoman for the 82nd Airborne.

Approximately 300 troops from other Army, Air Force and Marine Corps units will also deploy to provide “enabler” support in areas such as counterintelligence, logistics, and signals, Kirby said.

Last month, President Barack Obama authorized an additional 1,500 troops to deploy to Iraq to participate in the train, advise and assist mission. The deployment of elements of the 82nd Airborne is part of that initiative.

On Thursday, Lt. Gen. James Terry, the commander of Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve, told reporters that other countries in the coalition are expected to contribute to another 1,500-strong force for the capacity-building effort.

“The key to success out there will be increasing the capabilities of Iraqi security forces,” Terry said.

Iraqi officials are reportedly eager to go on the offensive and retake places like Mosul, but the U.S. military believes the ISF aren’t ready.

USA Dictator Obama says he spoke with and joked with Raul Castro, the communist tyrant from Cuba





Barack Obama held his year end press conference before going on his mult-week vacation in Hawaii.
During the presser Obama admitted his spoke with and joked with Raul Castro, the communist tyrant from Cuba.
Obama spoke about his conversation with tyrant Raul Castro.

My opening comments took about 15 minutes which is an awful long time on the phone. At the end of that he said, “Mr. President, you’re still a young man.” I apologized for taking such a long time before we engaged in a conversation. You’re still a young man and you still have a chance to break Fidel’s record which is seven hours straight… And then President Castro delivered his own opening remarks which lasted twice as long as mine. And, I said, “It obviously runs in the family.”

Michelle Malkin and a Big No for Jeb Bush



Jeb Bush: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Waterboy

Michelle Malkin

Dec 17, 2014

Allow me to unite America's left, right and center in just three words: No, Jeb, No.

Former GOP Florida governor Jeb Bush made the obvious official this week when he announced on Facebook that he's "actively exploring" a 2016 White House run. Of course, he's running. That's what inveterate politicians do.

Well, I hate to break it to Jeb Inc. There's no popular groundswell for Bush Part III. None, zip, nada. Independents, progressives and conservatives are all weary of the entrenched bipartisan dynasties that rule Washington and ruin America. Only in the hallowed bubble of D.C. and New York City elites does a Jeb Bush presidential bid make any sense.

Jeb's indulgent (and ultimately doomed) enterprise has three privileged constituencies: Big Business, Big Government and Big Media. This iron triumvirate explains how the failed campaigns of so-called "pragmatic," "thoughtful" and "moooooderate" liberal Republican candidates such as John McCain, Jon Huntsman and Bob Dole ever got off the ground. The "Reasonable Republican," anointed and enabled by the statist Big Three, serves as a useful tool for bashing conservatives and marginalizing conservatism.

For Republicans who argue that Jeb is the most "electable" choice, I ask: What planet are you on? After two disastrous terms of Barack Obama's Hope and Change Theater, the last thing the Republican Party needs is an establishment poster child for Washington business as usual. I mean, really? A third Bush who's been working for his dad, his dad's friends or the government since 1980?

A Beltway-ensconced scion so chummy with the Clinton family that he awarded close family friend -- and potential 2016 nemesis -- Hillary a "Liberty Medal" last year as chairman of the National Constitution Center?

That's the GOP donor bigwigs' "fresh idea" for "American Renewal?"

To blunt criticism from the grassroots base on the right, Jeb's cheerleaders at the Wall Street Journal cite his "conservative" gubernatorial record of cutting taxes and privatizing jobs. So we're supposed to swoon when a GOP governor acts like he's supposed to act on standard, bread-and-butter GOP issues? Whoop-de-doo.

One thing Jeb's promoters won't be emphasizing: Over the course of his eight years in the Florida governor's mansion, government spending skyrocketed. The libertarian Cato Institute notes that Florida general fund spending "increased from $18.0 billion to $28.2 billion during those eight years, or 57 percent" and that "(t)otal state spending increased from $45.6 billion to $66.1 billion, or 45 percent."

Like big-spending father, like big-spending big brother, like big-spending second son and lil' brother.

I have another interpretation of Bush's "conservative" Florida years: It's called biding his time. Yes, Jeb put in his obligatorily GOP service on taxes and the Second Amendment. Not because he was wedded to deep-rooted principles, mind you. But because the "conservative" facade will come in handy during the primaries when he has to defend radical, divisive positions on his two defining national policy issues: Education and immigration.

Jeb Bush's agenda is neither left nor right. His agenda is the agenda of the D.C. headquarters of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Remember: The chamber is a politically entrenched synod of bipartisan special interests. As I've said before, these fat cats do not represent the best interests of American entrepreneurs, American workers, American parents and students or Americans of any race, class or age who believe in low taxes and limited government.

The chamber's business is the big business of the Beltway, not the business of mainstream America. And so is Jeb Bush's.

The Chamber supports mass amnesty for cheap, illegal alien workers. Jeb Bush supports mass legalization of cheap, illegal alien workers and accuses those of us who oppose it on constitutional, sovereignty, security and fairness grounds of lacking "compassion."

The Chamber supports the top-down, privacy-undermining, local autonomy-sabotaging Common Core racket. Jeb Bush spearheaded and profited from Common Core -- and accuses those of us who oppose it of opposing academic excellence for our own children. Jeb's problem isn't just Common Core. It's that he has no core. Instead of retreating from the costly federalized scheme that has alienated teachers, administrators and parents of all backgrounds, Bush has doubled down with his Fed Ed control freak allies and corporate donors.

The reign of Obama ushered in massive cronyism, corporate favoritism and Boomtown boondoggles galore. We've lived too long already under the boot of arrogant D.C. bureaucrats who've exploited their power to serve their friends.

No more business as usual: Stop Jeb Bush.




Wild Thing's comment......

Michelle Malkin just kicked Jeb Bush in the butt .

I am glad she wrote this, I am not a fan of Jeb Bush and never have been. She states it very well the reasons she is not supporting him.

The Bushes have already had two bites at the apple,.

Hillary Praises Obama’s Cuba Deal


Hillary Praises Obama’s Cuba Deal

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued a statement on Wednesday evening expressing her “support” for the major shift in US policy towards Cuba that President Barack Obama announced earlier in the day.

Clinton, who is widely considered the Democratic frontrunner in the 2016 presidential elections, echoed Obama’s claim the shift will help improve human rights and free expression for Cubans living under the Communist government started by Fidel Castro.

“Despite good intentions, our decades-long policy of isolation has only strengthened the Castro regime’s grip on power. As I have said, the best way to bring change to Cuba is to expose its people to the values, information, and material comforts of the outside world,” Clinton said. “The goal of increased U.S. engagement in the days and years ahead should be to encourage real and lasting reforms for the Cuban people. And the other nations of the Americas should join us in this effort.”

Relations between America and Cuba began to deteriorate following the revolution that brought Castro to power in 1959. The US subsequently began an embargo against Cuba and cut diplomatic ties. Obama’s policy shift will include the resumption of diplomatic relations between the two countries as well as an easing of travel and commercial restrictions.

Along with articulating her support for the deal, Clinton praised the prisoner swap that precipitated the policy shift.

God help us if she gets elected we need a conservative to run and win so badly.

"A Slap in the Face": Pilots' Families Very Upset at Cuban Prisoner Swap


"A Slap in the Face": Pilots' Families Balk at Cuban Prisoner Swap


The South Florida families of pilots fatally shot down by Cuba in 1996 are speaking out against the Wednesday release of three members of the convicted spies known as the “Cuban Five” in a prisoner swap — among them one who had been convicted of conspiracy to commit murder over the shootdown.

"For the only person that we had responsible for what happened to be let go — it’s a slap in the face to my dad," Marlene Alejandre-Triana said at a news conference.


Alejandre-Triana's father Armando Alejandre, a Vietnam veteran, was one of four pilots killed when Cuban MiGs shot down their two small, private planes in February 1996 in international waters off Cuba's northern coast. They had been flying missions for Brothers to the Rescue, an exile organization that sought to aid migrants at sea and also dropped propaganda leaflets.

One of the agents known as the "Cuban Five," Gerardo Hernandez, had been serving a life sentence on a murder conspiracy conviction in the shoot-down.


He and two other members of the Cuban Five — Ramon Labanino and Antonio Guerrero — were released Wednesday as part of the prisoner swap and flown back to their homeland, ending what their appeals lawyer called "an arduous experience."

The families of the pilots said they were given no warning of the release.

“We simply cannot understand how this could have happened, especially in the case of Gerardo Hernandez. This was the only modicum of justice we had,” said Maggie Alejandre-Khuly, sister of one of the pilots who was killed.

The Cuban Five were all convicted in 2001 of being unregistered foreign agents, and three also were found guilty of espionage conspiracy for failed efforts to obtain military secrets from the U.S. Southern Command headquarters. Hernandez, meanwhile, had been serving two life sentences plus 15 years on a murder conspiracy conviction stemming from the Cuban air force's 1996 shoot-down.


Cuba insists the Five were not acting against U.S. sovereignty, only keeping tabs on militant exile groups that Havana blames for terror attacks on the island, including a string of hotel bombings.

But prosecutors argued they also tried to penetrate military bases, including the U.S. Southern Command and facilities in the Florida Keys.


Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen believes President Barack Obama may have broken federal law with the prisoner swap and decried it Wednesday.

“This is outrageous. The Cuban regime ordered the murder — the assassination of these three American citizens, one resident — and what has been the value of these valiant heroes lives and deaths? An exchange," Ros-Lehtinen said.

The "Five Heroes," as they are known in Cuba, are fixtures in state media, and their faces grace billboards across the island. Schoolchildren are taught their names and take part in public acts demanding their release. However, the five are reviled as spies by many exiles in South Florida.

For years, Havana has made them an official cause celebre, rivaling the case of Elian Gonzalez, the boy rafter who in 2000 was caught in a tug-of-war between his Cuban father and family in Miami.

The other two members of the Cuban Five had already been released before the last three walked free Wednesday.

Rene Gonzalez, a dual U.S.-Cuban national, became the first of the agents to walk free in October 2011 after completing about 13 years behind bars. He was initially ordered to serve three years of supervised parole and remain in the United States, but in 2013 a judge allowed him to return to Cuba and renounce his U.S. citizenship.

Fernando Gonzalez, who is not related to Rene Gonzalez, was released in February 2014 after serving more than 15 years, and quickly deported to Cuba. The last three still in American lockups were Hernandez, Antonio Guerrero and Ramon Labanino.

The Most Patriotic BBQ Joint In America



This may look like your typical barbecue joint. But, every day at noon, Mission BBQ transforms into the most patriotic barbecue place out there.

Mission BBQ has 13 locations, but, the Virginia Beach location is very special because it is located between Norfolk Naval Base - which is the world's largest Navy base - and Naval Air Station Oceana. So, these owners decided to show their patriotism with a tribute that sets this location apart from all the others.

At noon, over the loud speaker, you will here a voice asking all patrons to please stand and join in the singing of our national anthem. And, it does not stop there: the walls are covered with photographs and memorabilia from the military, local police and firefighters. That puts Mission BBQ on our list of places to check out.

Sen. Ted Cruz Discusses Obama and Cuba on "Your World with Neil Cavuto"




Sen. Ted Cruz Discusses Obama and Cuba on "Your World with Neil Cavuto "

Following the return of Alan Gross to the U.S., Sen. Ted Cruz slammed the “Obama, Clinton, Kerry foreign policy,” saying the Castro brothers are “state sponsors of terrorism” and that President Barack Obama “does not understand the difference between our friends and our enemies.”

Cruz, one of three Cuban American members of the upper chamber in Congress, also called the normalization of relations between the two nations “a tragic mistake” made the comments to Fox News’ Neil Cavuto Wednesday afternoon.

TED CRUZ:

“This is yet another manifestation of the failures of the Obama, Clinton, Kerry foreign policy. For six years we followed the pattern of alienating and abandoning our friends and allies, and at the same time coddling up to and appeasing to those who are enemies of this country. It’s a consistent pattern. First Russia, then Iran, now Cuba.”

“This announcement today will be remembered as a tragic mistake. You know, Cuba was struggling, it was gasping, gasping for air. It has been relying on Venezuela with oil prices cratering. Venezuela is hurting economically and just like the administration did with Iran right when the administration was feeling the maximum pain it throws them an economic lifeline and continues the brutal repression and dictatorship of the Castro brothers.”

NEIL CAVUTO: “Senator, a lot of folks look at both sides and say what has 60 years of this brought?”

CRUZ:

“Well, what it has wrought is limiting the impact and harm of Cuba. There’s a difference between countries that are friends, that are allies, trading partners. in cuba, the Cuban government controls all of the money that comes in. If you bring money the country you have to transfer it to Cuban pesos which enriches and empowers the dictatorship. Cuba is an ally of North Korea. It’s an ally of Iran. It’s an ally of Venezuela. it is an avowed enemy of this country.”

“It was striking the president’s remarks. he talked about the Bay of Pigs invasion but somehow completely omitted the Cuban Missile Crisis. Somehow completely omitted an incredible threat to U.S. national security with nuclear weapons that were almost 90 miles off our shore. It was sad to see both the president and John Kerry essentially blame America first. Blame America for the relation between the United States and Cuba. look, the Castros are the ones who have decided to be brutal, repressive dictators. We should not be taking blame for the fact that we responded to their active acts of war and hostility. They are a leading state sponsor of terrorism and just like President Obama did with Russia, just like President Obama did with Iran he does not understand the difference between our friends and our enemies.”

AZ Sheriff: Obama’s Executive Amnesty Will Allow 20 MILLION Not 5 Million Illegals to Stay in US



AZ Sheriff: Obama’s Executive Amnesty Will Allow 20 MILLION Not 5 Million Illegals to Stay in US


Illegals Attending Workshops To See If They Qualify For Pres' Executive Orders


The imperial emperor said his executive order would apply to 5 million illegal aliens but that number will be at least 20 million if not higher. He also stated those here would have to prove they have been in the US for at least five years qualifying for deferred action. But according to Sheriff Babeu DHS Sec Jeh Johnson issued a memo to all depts under DHS that illegal aliens will be entitled to deferred action.

“Jeh Johnson the Secretary of Homeland Security, put out a six page memo, and he said that anybody who’s been here since January of this year, anybody prior to that date, they are allowed to stay here.”

This means 20 MILLION illegals will be able to get a “work permit, a driver’s license, all access to our social programs” not 5 million. That number will be higher because extended families are not being factored in along with those who will continue to come here regardless of the rules. If anything these workshops are going to give forgers, who already provide fake SSI cards, drivers licenses, birth certificates etc, a massive payday now that they have a list of documents to produce.

Obama’s Top Immigration Official To Illegals: Apply For Amnesty “With Confidence” Because No Personal Info Will Be Shared With ICE


As the Obama administration gears up to implement its controversial amnesty plan for illegal immigrants, one administration official is assuring those who have broken U.S. immigration laws they should apply for their new status without fear of the government. […]

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Leon Rodriguez spoke to an audience in Los Angeles on Monday and assured them that it was safe to apply for amnesty.

Speaking in Spanish, Rodriguez said, “Don’t worry. Participate with confidence.”

In fact, Rodriguez has promised amnesty seekers that their information will not be shared with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the federal department that is responsible for the detention and deportation of illegal immigrants.

Obama's DOJ Lawsuit Against Minn. Town Will Force Them To Allow Construction of New Mosque, CAIR Filed Initial Request



Obama's DOJ Lawsuit Against Minn. Town Will Force Them To Allow Construction of New Mosque, CAIR Filed Initial Request


(KMSP) – A settlement between the Department of Justice and the city of St. Anthony Village, Minn. will finally allow the Abu-Huraira group to use the former Medtronic headquarters as a place of worship.

In June 2012, the city’s planning commission approved plans for the Abu-Huraira Islamic Center, but the city council later rejected the proposal by a vote of 4-1. Some in the Muslim community claimed the proposal was voted down due to religious discrimination, but St. Anthony Village maintained the issue was one of land use and zoning — not of religious intolerance.

At the request of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Department of Justice launched an investigation into the matter in October 2012. A federal lawsuit was filed in August, accusing the city of violating the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 (RLUIPA).

“Four months ago, my office filed a civil rights lawsuit to protect the religious freedoms of the congregants of the Abu-Huraira Islamic Center,” said U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger. “We made it clear then that an injustice had been done to these Somali Minnesotans. After lengthy negotiations involving attorneys from my office and the Department of Justice, St. Anthony Village, and Abu-Huraira, we have reached a resolution that respects the Constitution and provides the worship space that Abu-Huraira sought.

The White House wants healthcare providers to get serious about bulking up their defenses against climate change.

In a best-practice guide for healthcare providers and policymakers released on Monday, the administration advises them on how to best improve their “climate readiness.”

The guide is one piece of a larger initiative at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) launched by President Obama last year, and provides information to healthcare facilities on how to prepare of extreme weather events the administration says is tied to climate change.

Canada Strongly Opposes Decision To Convene Anti-Israel Conference In Geneva


December 16, 2014 – Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird today issued the following statement regarding the decision to convene a conference of the High Contracting Parties to the Geneva Conventions:

“Canada has conveyed its deep concerns and has communicated clearly that it will neither attend this conference nor lend it any credibility.

“Canada is deeply disappointed by the convening of this one-sided and politicized conference, which serves only to single out one country, Israel, for criticism. Canada has complete faith in the strength of the rule of law in Israel, and we believe the Israelis are capable of investigating matters surrounding the events that took place in Gaza in the summer of 2014.

“This conference risks undermining the integrity and credibility of the Geneva Conventions and the neutrality of their application.

“Such a misguided approach will neither serve the cause of peace nor bring the parties closer to a negotiated settlement.”

NBC/WSJ Poll: Majority of Americans Approve of CIA’s “Harsh Interrogation” Methods Used Against Al-Qaeda, Just 28% Oppose


Including a plurality of Americans (45%-28%) who want the CIA to resume the program killed by Obama.

Most Americans don’t object to the CIA’s interrogation techniques that some call torture, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

After being told the CIA used “harsh interrogation practices on suspected terrorists,” 51% of those surveyed said the practices were “acceptable under the circumstances.” Only 28% said the interrogations were wrong and 20% said they didn’t have an opinion.

President Barack Obama ended the practice, known legally as “enhanced interrogation”, early in his White House tenure. But 45% of those polled said the CIA should continue to use them, while just 28% said they are wrong and should not be used.

More of Obama destroying America. Businesses to receive incentive for hiring illegal immigrants, report says



Businesses to receive incentive for hiring illegal immigrants, report says


FOX News


Businesses reportedly will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers under President Obama’s sweeping action on illegal immigration.

Because of a kink in ObamaCare, businesses will not face a penalty for not providing illegal immigrants health care, The Washington Times reports. Illegal immigrants are ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on ObamaCare’s health exchanges.

Congressional aides condemned the loophole saying it puts illegal immigrants ahead of Americans in the job hunt.

“If it is true that the president’s actions give employers a $3,000 incentive to hire those who came here illegally, he has added insult to injury,” Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican told The Washington Times. “The president’s actions would have just moved those who came here illegally to the front of the line, ahead of unemployed and underemployed Americans.”

“That’s the nobel sp-spirit of your sacrifice. That’s the selfless character of our military. Those are the precious gifts you give America not just this time of year but all year.

Visiting Soldier Can’t Stay With His Wife Or Landlord Will Double Rent


FOX News


CENTRAL, SC (FOX Carolina)


A soldier returning home for the holidays to see his wife and newborn baby in Central is being kicked out of his wife’s apartment after the landlord said he is overstaying the time allowed for visitors.

Sergeant William Bullock is stationed in Missouri, but his wife has been in Central. She gave birth to their daughter two weeks ago.

Bullock said the landlord at The Groves apartment complex in Central told him he had overstayed, saying visitors are not allowed to stay in the apartments past seven days, per the agreement signed by Bullock’s wife, Lily.

“I’m stationed in Missouri and we haven’t seen each other in six months. What’s the problem with me staying and visiting with my wife?” Bullock said.

The landlord, whose name is Chuck, told FOX Carolina he enforces that rule for all his tenants.

Since Bullock's name is not on the lease, even though he is a spouse visiting, the landlord said he is not allowed to stay. Bullock said the landlord threatened to press charges and double his wife's rent if he stayed.

"He stated to me that he didn't care about our situation, he didn't care about me being in the military," Bullock said.
Bullock said his wife is a Clemson University student and new mom. He fears she could be evicted.

FOX Carolina showed the agreement to an attorney, who said that provision is vaguely written, and said the landlord would have a hard time pressing charges, since the person visiting is the tenant's husband.

On Saturday, Bullock said his wife finished final exams at Clemson and they would be going to visit family.

They are planning to arrange to sit down with the landlord and a mediator to discuss how to change the lease to suit both parties. Bullock said they are hoping to find legal representation or someone from the university who will act as a mediator.

Bullock said his concern is the well-being of his wife when his leave ends. He is concerned about the possibility Chuck will want to raise their rent substantially.

My God, this man is a husband - Not A Visitor!!

The wife is a new mom, a college student and he husband is in the military..... I t so hard to believe a landlord could be without any compassion. Hell has a special place for people like this.

Adding Insult to Injury: Obama Paying for Illegal Amnesty with Fees Paid by Legal Immigrants



Adding Insult to Injury: Obama Paying for Illegal Amnesty with Fees Paid by Legal Immigrants

Another slap in the face to legal immigrants and Americans who follow the law…
Barack Obama is paying for his illegal executive amnesty with fees from legal immigrants.

Katie Pavlich at Townhall reported:

The funding for Obama’s executive action is coming through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, a fee, not tax based agency under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security…

…Who is paying these fees? Millions of legal immigrants are paying these fees, which are now being reallocated by the executive branch to legalize millions of illegal immigrants who have been living in the United States for years while failing to go through proper and long established legal channels to obtain citizenship or other legal status. From the USCIS.gov website:

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is funded largely by application and petition fees. Recognizing that some applicants cannot pay the filing fees, USCIS established a fee waiver process for certain forms and benefit types. Demonstrated inability to pay is the only reason USCIS will approve a fee waiver.

Waiving a fee for one applicant transfers the cost of processing their application to other applicants through higher fees. Therefore, USCIS carefully considers the merits of each fee waiver request before making a decision.

On average legal immigrants wait ten years to fully obtain citizenship (and only after they’ve had a green card for five years) and they must pay thousands of dollars to USCIS in the process. Again, that money is now being used to give millions of illegal immigrants a free, expedited pass to legal status. Adding insult to injury, millions of green cards for illegals means longer wait times for legal immigrants.

Again Obama steals from the law abiding and gives to the law breakers.

Feinstein Rift With CIA Director Only Getting Worse



Feinstein Rift With CIA Director Only Getting Worse

AP report

Their disputes over who spied on whom and censoring the Senate’s scathing torture report are history. But the personal feud between Sen. Dianne Feinstein and CIA Director John Brennan may only be getting worse.

Relations between the outgoing Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman and America’s top spy appeared to hit a new low Thursday as Feinstein live-tweeted comments contradicting Brennan as he publicly addressed her panel’s sweeping allegations of CIA wrongdoing. While Feinstein later praised Brennan for accepting many of her inquiry’s conclusions, the damage was done.

“#ReadTheReport” was the refrain from Feinstein as Brennan held a rare news conference at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. She berated the CIA chief for suggesting, contrary to her report, that the agency’s “enhanced interrogation techniques” were legal and may have helped lead to the killing of Osama bin Laden.


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

Enhanced interrogation is not torture, except in the minds of sissy liberals and fools.

Mayor De Blasio Banned: NY Police Union Bans Mayor From Funerals of Cops Killed On Duty



Mayor De Blasio Banned: NY Police Union Bans Mayor From Funerals of Cops Killed On Duty

..."consistent refusal to show police officers the support and respect they deserve"


New York City's rank-and-file police union is urging its members to ban Mayor Bill de Blasio from their funerals.

The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association posted a link on its website telling members not to let Mayor de Blasio and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito "insult their sacrifice" should they be killed in the line of duty. The waiver states:

"I, as a New York City police officer, request that Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito refrain from attending my funeral services in the event that I am killed in the line of duty. Due to Mayor de Blasio and Speaker Mark-Viverito’s consistent refusal to show police officers the support and respect they deserve, I believe that their attendance at the funeral of a fallen New York City police officer is an insult to that officer’s memory and sacrifice.”

The mayor customarily attends such funerals.

The union's president has said officers haven't felt supported in the wake of a chokehold death of an unarmed black man.


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

After what communist DeBlasio said about the police I don't blame them how they feel about him.

“Ready For Hillary” The largest Hillary Clinton super PAC is already in debt ( Dems Drive everything into the ground)


“Ready For Hillary” PAC Is In Debt


Ready for Hillary, arguably the largest and most well-know Hillary Clinton super PAC, is already in the negatives.

Despite pulling in tens of thousands of donors — mainly small contributions — and raising nearly $11 million since it was founded just last year, they’re somehow in debt.

According to the New York Times, on November 24, the group had $875,626 in the bank. Problem was, they also owed $1 million for a loan from Amalgamated — a union-tied bank that many Democrats use as a means of borrowing money. The purpose of the loan is to expand grassroots efforts of the PAC which they believe, in turn,will bring in many more small contributors.

Sen. Mike Lee Floor Remarks on the "CRomnibus"



Great speech by Sen. Mike Lee

I rise in opposition to the spending bill before us today. I rise in opposition to the cynical substance of the legislation. I rise in opposition to the un-republican and undemocratic process by which a small collection of political and economic insiders crafted it, to benefit each other at everyone else’s expense. And finally, I rise in particular opposition to the signals this so-called CRomnibus sends.

Louie Gohmert Slams Boehner After Cromnibus: Maybe Democrats Will Vote for Him for Speaker


Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) went off on Speaker John Boehner after the trillion dollar Cromnibus bill passed in the House on Thursday night.

Rep. Louie Gohmert: Some of us had gone to our leadership and said… Let’s fund everything for two months. Let us have a vote on defunding Obamacare… We were willing to work with him, to compromise. And not one word as you know. The calls went to the White House. When in time when the Speaker needed votes he turned to someone he really identifies with, the president and liberal Democrats. And got them to help him pass this vote…

Sean Hannity: Do you think either one of you that this impacts John Boehner’s running for reelection as Speker? Is this going to come up in play now?

Louie Gohmert: I think he ought to be able to pick up some Democratic votes for Speaker.

U.S. House Passes $1.1 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill 219-206; Funds Obama Amnesty Order through February; Democrats in “Disarray”





U.S. House Passes $1.1 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill 219-206; Funds Obama Amnesty Order through February; Democrats in “Disarray”


The U.S. House of Representatives has just passed a $1.1 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill to fully fund the U.S. Government through September 2015, the end of the Fiscal Year. The bill passed 219-206, with Republicans making up the lion’s share of the votes. Democrats revolted against Barack Obama, urged to do so by Leftist Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Importantly, the bill only funds Homeland Security through February – the funding for Obama’s unconstitutional Executive Order. Republicans will control both Houses of Congress in January and can try to do something about it. The measure now moves to the U.S. Senate, which Majority Leader Harry Reid said tonight would take it up tomorrow.

The New York Times


The House on Thursday narrowly passed a $1.1 trillion spending package that would fund most government operations for the fiscal year after a rancorous debate that reflected the new power held by Republicans and disarray among Democrats in the aftermath of the midterm elections.





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

I wish the Republicans would be stronger. With this bill they funded Obamacare for another year. ( deep sigh)

Utah Senator Mike Lee: Obama Is Opening A Backdoor For Illegal Immigrants To Become Citizens Instantly







Mike Lee: Obama Is Opening A Backdoor For Illegal Immigrants To Become Citizens Instantly


Obama’s recently unveiled immigration scheme creates a new path for illegal immigrants and those who overstay their visas to become legal citizens nearly instantly, according to Utah Sen. Mike Lee.

Taking to the Senate floor Thursday to reveal the backdoor he said Obama is opening to millions more illegals beyond the parents of children here legally, the Republican said, “This is the danger of unilateral executive action.”

While the issue is complicated, Lee said that Obama’s plan would ease the requirement that those overstaying their visas must leave then try to enter again legally.

It would also provide a way for those here illegally to be waived into America without any punishment.

Lee said that the Obama plan would provide “advance parole” to illegals, putting them on the fast track to a green card and citizenship. That status has been difficult to get in the past.

Mike Lee is a good man, a conservative and has always listened to the voice of the people that put him in office.

Dem Rep. Jackie Speier: CIA Should Apologize To Islamic Terrorists For Agency’s Response To 9/11

Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D., Calif.) told MSNBC’s Craig Melvin that the CIA should “absolutely” issue an apology to terrorists after Tuesday’s release of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA interrogation techniques.

Speier said she was “shocked” by the report and said “that is not what this country is about. We have got to shut this down.”

Lt. Col. Peters is correct. Hillary prefers to feel for the terrorists.

Both Bill and Hillary have no loyalty to our country and they never have. Bill was a draft dodger and then when he was President he never went after the terrorists the first time the twin towers were attacked.

SIX FORMER CIA DIRECTORS: Interrogation Program “Saved Thousands of Lives”



SIX FORMER CIA DIRECTORS: Interrogation Program “Saved Thousands of Lives”


Six former Directors and Deputy Directors of the CIA fired back at the Senate Intelligence Committee with a vehemence almost never seen in the intelligence world.

The former CIA leaders — including George Tenet, Porter Goss and Michael Hayden — blasted the Senate report as “one-sided and marred with errors” and called it “a poorly done and partisan attack on the agency that has done the most to protect America after the 9/11 attacks.”


Their 2,500-word rebuttal was posted as an op-ed on the Wall Street Journal website once the report was released. The former intel chiefs are also launching their own website to respond to the attacks on CIA’s post-9/11 activities.

The former directors argue that the CIA interrogation program “saved thousands of lives” by helping lead to the capture of top al Qaeda operatives and disrupting their plotting.

“A powerful example of the interrogation program’s importance is the information obtained from Abu Zubaydah, a senior al Qaeda operative, and from Khalid Sheik Muhammed, known as KSM, the 9/11 mastermind,” the former directors write. “We are convinced that both would not have talked absent the interrogation program.”

As for Osama bin Laden, the former directors outline the steps that led the Navy SEALs to the Bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

“The CIA never would have focused on the individual who turned out to be bin Laden’s personal courier without the detention and interrogation program,” they write. “So the bottom line is this: The interrogation program formed an essential part of the foundation from which the CIA and the U.S. military mounted the bin Laden operation.”



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


I am glad they spoke out, it is horrible what Obama and Feinstein etc. are trying to do. These CIA and our troops were doing exactly what I would have hoped they would do.
