Portraits of Valor; Roy Benavidez

Roy Benavidez was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions West of Loc Ninh, South Vietnam in May of 1968. When word that a squad was pinned down by enemy fire Roy Benavidez immediately volunteered to exact their rescue. During the course of the effort he subjected himself to constant enemy fire and suffered numerous injuries, but still led the remaining soldiers to protect and defend their position even after their first rescue helicopter was shot down.

His Family has a Mexican restaurant in El Paso TX. on MacGruder street, just outside of Ft Bliss. It is called Carlos and Mickey’s. They have numerous pictures of him along with the ones of him receiving the MOH from President Reagan.

This is the kind of person the young should respect and realize they are the real heroes, not people like Obama.

Conservative Actress: Obama Admin ‘Bunch of Bullies’ Who Are ‘Out of Touch’

Conservative Actress : Obama Admin ‘Bunch of Bullies’ Who Are ‘Out of Touch’

Since actress Stacey Dash has gone public with her conservative points of view — namely endorsing Mitt Romney for president last year — she’s come under a volley of criticism from the left.

But that hasn’t shut her up.

At issue for Dash right now is Attorney General Eric Holder who, along with other federal officials, are suing the state of Louisiana over its voucher system — the suit seeks to block the state from issuing new tuition vouchers in some districts under desegregation orders, according to Fox News.

But the program opens the door for about 8,000 students from low-income families in school districts graded C, D or F to use public money to attend private schools, costing the state about $45 million per year, Fox News reports.

Louisiana’s Republican Governor Bobby Jindal — along with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, also a Republican — are demanding the Justice Department back down…and now Dash is joining the fight.

“I just think it’s absurd,” Dash tells FOX411. “The natural evolution of a well-educated populous is integration, and for them to deny a child a better education because of the color of their skin is ludicrous and defeating the purpose. It shows just how out-of-touch this administration is with their own people that they say they want to help…This is not 1965.”
“This is proof to me that this administration is a bunch of bullies,” Dash noted. “They need to drop these charges.”

“The school system has become a part of this huge government machine, governed by people who aren’t close to the situation. That’s why I’m a Republican. I believe in small government. That’s what I am fighting for with this country,” Dash said. “The government is just too big and we have to make it smaller, people are getting lost.”

While Dash supported Romney in the 2012 election, she says she voted for Obama in the 2008 election…and not for particularly political reasons.

“I didn’t know anything about [Obama] when I voted for him in 2008. My choice to do so was purely because he was black. Naively, I thought he would be the right person for the job but unfortunately it didn’t turn out that way,” Dash explained. “Obama had the opportunity to really unite this country in such a profound way, but instead he has done the opposite. We are so divided right now, everything has become about race, more than I’ve ever known in my lifetime.”

I have a ton of respect for Stacey because she is obviously thinking instead of following the sheep in Hollywood and she endures a lot of hate! Thanks Stacey for speaking the truth. That takes courage!

Very Revealing Contrast Barack Obama's Quotes About Islam With His Quotes About Christianity

Very Revealing Contrast Barack Obama's Quotes About Islam With His Quotes About Christianity

You are about to read some of the most shocking quotes that Barack Obama has ever uttered in public. A few of these have been widely circulated, but most of them are very obscure. Even though he claims to be a Christian, throughout his political career Obama has repeatedly attacked traditional Biblical Christianity and he has a very long history of anti-Christian actions. In public speeches he has repeatedly cast doubt on the Bible, he has repeatedly stated that he does not believe that Jesus is necessary for salvation, and he has consistently said that he believes that all “people of faith” believe in the same God.

At the same time, Obama has always referred to Muhammed as “the Prophet”, he has always expressed great love and respect for Islam, and he has even removed all references to Islam from terror training materials used by federal government agencies.

So what in the world does “the leader of the free world” actually believe? Read the quotes below and decide for yourself…

20 Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam

#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.”

20 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity

#1 “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”

#2 “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”

#3 “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”

#4 “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”

#5 “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”

#6 From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”

#7 Obama’s response when asked what his definition of sin is: “Being out of alignment with my values.”

#8 “If all it took was someone proclaiming I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins, and that was all there was to it, people wouldn’t have to keep coming to church, would they.”

#9 “This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and prostelytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.”

#10 “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”

#11 “I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.”

#12 “I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell.”

#13 “Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will–they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”

#14 On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”

#15 “You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

#16 “In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology”

#17 “On Easter or Christmas Day, my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.”

#18 “we have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, and their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own”

#19 “All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra — (applause) — as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer. (Applause.)”

#20 “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

John McCain Hires Syrian Rebel Advocate Who Fabricated Her Background

McCain Hires Syrian Rebel Advocate Who Fabricated Her Background

So knowing she’s a liar, knowing that she’s in bed with the “rebels”, that she put out conflicting accounts, that she whitewashed the “rebels” into a more “moderate” force, this woman is worthy, according to John McCain, of being hired to his staff. This is so unbelievable, it makes one think that there is some greater personal underlying reason operating here.

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain hired the Syria analyst in favor of U.S. intervention who was fired for fabricating her Ph.D., Foreign Policy reported.

Elizabeth O’Bagy, formerly of the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), will start Monday as a legislative assistant in Sen. McCain’s office.

McCain told Foreign Policy that “Elizabeth is a talented researcher, and I have been very impressed by her knowledge and analysis in multiple briefings over the last year.” The senator’s office said they would not make any further comment on O’Bagy’s employment.

O’Bagy worked as a senior analyst at the non-profit public policy organization, which analyzes military affairs. McCain and Secretary of State John Kerrry catapulted O’Bagy into the spotlight by referencing an op-ed she published in the Wall Street Journal while making the case for war.

McCain even refered to the analyst as “Dr. Elizabeth O’Bagy.” O’Bagy argued moderate Syrian rebels will be able to keep U.S. arms out of the hands of Islamist fighters.

Once O’Bagy became a leading voice for U.S. intervention, it was revealed that she never received a PhD from Georgetown University. It was later reported that not only was O’Bagy not awarded a final degree, she never even enrolled in the Georgetown program she had claimed.

One can't even make this stuff up. It is simply too unbelievable to even make it in fiction!!! Ugh!

McCain is a raving lunatic who sold his soul long ago.

Obamacare To Subsidize Up To 111,500 Abortions Each Year ~ Obama Loves this!

Obamacare To Subsidize Up To 111,500 Abortions Each Year

A jarring study from a pro-life think talk has found that tens of thousands of abortions may be subsidized by Obamacare, receiving funding from taxpayers through the healthcare law’s tax credits and Medicaid.

The report, conducted by the Charlotte Lozier Institute,examined how Obamacare’s health insurance exchanges will include multi-state plans that cover abortions beyond those required by the Hyde Amendment. According to the think tank, as many as 5.57 million girls and women will gain coverage for abortion under the Affordable Care Act, with between 71,000 and 111,500 abortions subsidized by Medicaid and tax credits each year.

“It could be argued that expanding private coverage of abortion will therefore have a small impact on the public subsidies for abortion, but it is by no means certain that today’s funding patterns will remain unchanged, as the heart of the abortion funding debate under ObamaCare, as with every other public program or private policy on the subject, is whether it represents a health practice or the unwarranted destruction of human life that is injurious to all involved,” Chuck Donovan, president of the Charlotte Lozier Institute, wrote in the report.

“ObamaCare’s conflicting policies represent a step, partial but by no means full, toward treating abortion as a basic medical treatment that should be no more controversial than dental hygiene or pap smears,” he continued.

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

It is so sick this agenda to kill innocent babies and Obama pushes it and pushes it.

I will never forgive him for forcing us to pay for these abortions when we are under his obamacare.

Obama lied to us -- he told America some real whoppers about ObamaCare

Obama lied to us -- he told America some real whoppers about ObamaCare

FOX News

By Todd Starnes

President Obama lied to us.

It wasn’t a white lie. It wasn’t a fib. It wasn’t a half truth. It was a bold-faced lie.

“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise,” President Obama told the American Medical Association in 2009. “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”

That statement turned out to be a lie. Period.

On Thursday I asked my Facebook community if they had faced hardships as a result of ObamaCare.

The response was overwhelming. I received nearly 1,000 replies – from small business owners, nurses, doctors, electricians, stay-at-home moms, and military personnel. Every single person said they had been adversely affected by President Obama’s signature legislation.

So let’s break down the president’s lies.

Thursday he told an audience in Largo, Maryland that the Affordable Care Act had not hurt jobs.

“There's no widespread evidence that the Affordable Care Act is hurting jobs,” he said.

Investor’s Business Daily reports that as a direct result of ObamaCare, more than 300 companies have either eliminated jobs or reduced full time jobs to part time jobs. Hospitals across the country are firing staff and reducing work hours.

Janet Blanck owns Country Blossom Florist, a small shop in Gilbert, Ariz. She tells me that as a result of ObamaCare she’s had to lay off three employees.

At one time, she employed eight people. Those who were not let go now work part-time because of rising insurance costs.

“Obama is killing us,” she told me. “It breaks my heart to have to do this. I have to protect what I have built and this is the only way that I know of to get around this law and still stay in business.”

President Obama also promised us that we would be able to keep our doctor. Another lie.

Several hundred of you, like Joel Keefauver, wrote to tell me that your doctors were either shuttering their practices or shedding patients.

“Under the forthcoming Affordable Care Act and new healthcare regulations, I will no longer be able to provide the quality of healthcare you have come to expect and that I believe is proper,” the doctor wrote in a letter to Keefauver. “The increased cost imposed by complying with these new laws, along with decreasing reimbursements, creates a financial burden that is unsustainable for my solo practice.”

DiDi Henry’s elderly mother recently moved from Alabama to Louisiana. She has been unable to find a doctor willing to take Medicare patients.

“Several doctors told her that they just aren’t taking Medicare patients because of ObamaCare,” she told me.

The president also told us ObamaCare would make health insurance affordable? Another whopper.

Business owner Sheila Frey tells me her insurance rates have increased by 46 percent. Her small family-run company is paying $2,000 a month for coverage.

And remember how President Obama promised rebate checks to defray the cost of buying insurance coverage? Well, Shelia tells me her rebate check was a meager $127. You do the math.

Tammy Boisvert told me she had to find a new pediatrician.

“My family doctor of 20 years couldn’t take my newborn due to this insurance mess,” she wrote. “With a family of six all seen by this one doctor, I suddenly had to search for a new pediatrician.”

President Obama promised we could keep our current health care plan. Another lie.

Michelle Cox, of Asheville, N.C. wrote to me about a letter she received Thursday from her insurance company.

“ACA requires is to make significant changes to our health benefits plan designs,” the letter read. “We cannot renew your existing plan in 2014.”

Alissa Delamar is in the same boat -- searching for insurance after her company canceled its group plan.

“I’m stressed so much financially now I can’t fathom any more debt,” she wrote. “It leaves you hopeless.”

Catherine Schneider and her husband own Blue Sky Trucking in Montgomery, Minn. They were just informed that their insurance policy would be canceled in December.

“It’s too expensive,” she said. “The Affordable Care Act is disrupting our business and it has the potential to destroy our family.”

Allison deNijis’s family policy was also canceled.

“I thought Obama said we could keep our insurance?” she asked. “I thought he said our cost would decline? Not true! Epic fail!”

Her family was offered a new policy that now includes a nearly $1,000 monthly premium and $5,000 in individual deductibles.

“I am seriously considering just paying the fine and putting the differential amount in a personal savings account,” she told me. “Why should I pay over $13,000 in premiums?”

By the time ObamaCare is fully implemented, I suspect most Americans will be begging for death panels – to put us out of our misery.

It amazes me how when Obama lies which is all the time, how anyone believes him, but they do.

Obama to Blame for This!! Interpreter, Who Saved Our Soldiers, Promised Visa By U.S., Now Left In Dangerous Limbo

Obama to Blame for This!! Interpreter, Who Saved Our Soldiers, Promised Visa By U.S., Now Left In Dangerous Limbo

written by : US army soldier Matt Zeller

The US promised a visa to my Afghan interpreter. Now it's been revoked

My interpreter saved my life. Now the Taliban want to kill him, and the US is stalling on his visa. This isn't right

Five years ago, my Afghan interpreter Janis Shinwari saved my life in a firefight against the Taliban. Ever since then, I've been trying to save his as the Taliban placed him on a kill list for his service to the US military.

Afghan and Iraqi interpreters are promised that if they give the United States military one year of "faithful and valuable service", they and their immediate families will receive Special Immigrant Visas to come to the United States. Janis has served our military for the past nine years. He has more than earned his place in America, so you can imagine our joy when after years of pleading with the State Department, the US embassy in Kabul issued him and his family US visas two weeks ago.

But this past Saturday, everything came crashing down. Janis called me at 2am in a panic. After giving him and his family their salvation, the State Department revoked it only two weeks later without any explanation.

I spent the next few days calling the US embassy in Kabul and State Department to no avail. After total silence, they finally told me that his visa was revoked for reasons they could not legally address. I investigated further and had my worst suspicions confirmed: in the two weeks since the State Department issued his visa, an anonymous "informant" contacted the US government and claimed all sorts of things about Janis. The informant's bogus claims eventually reached an analyst at the National Counter Terrorism Center (NCTC) in Washington DC who promptly put a security hold on Janis' visa, prompting the State Department to revoke it all together.

It's fairly common for the Taliban to read the US news. I can't help but think that they learned of our successful efforts to secure Janis his visa via the extensive coverage our efforts generated. They used to call our base in Afghanistan and claim all sorts of lies about our interpreters in an attempt to get us to fire them. The Taliban are almost certainly the source of the anonymous tip and now they have more time to hunt him and his family down and kill them.

If NCTC and the State Department were to go and check the validity of the source of whatever information prompted this revocation, I am certain it will turn up as not credible at all. The US government took years to review his information and after all that time they felt that he was good to go for a visa. And yet, suddenly, in the last two weeks, a magic piece of information that causes a revocation of his visa has just now come to light? I don't buy it. This development does not pass the logical plausibility test. If he was a bad guy, he would have killed me in the firefight and not two Taliban fighters.

After the State Department issued him his visas, he did what anyone in his situation would do – what I would do too – he sold his house, his possessions, and quit his job because he was told he was on his way to his new life in America. Now, he literally has nothing but the promise our nation made to bring him and his family to the US for his near decade of faithful, honorable, and heroic service to the US military. Apparently, the US government feels its perfectly routine and justified to break that promise.

Since his case attracted a large amount of US and international media attention, I fear it has only further raised his profile and his target for Taliban attacks. Any delay in his travel to the US raises the prospects of Taliban reprisal against him and his family. By revoking his visa, the US is literally endangering his life.

I fear at this point we can only save Janis by shaming the US government into doing the right thing.

I will do whatever I have to to save his life. The United States military doesn't leave a solider behind. Janis is a member of my unit – a brother in arms – still trapped in Afghanistan. I will not leave him behind.

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

I have4 a gut feeling that the reason Obama does not want to keep the promise our country made to this man is because Obama hates him. This man helped our troops and his help made it possible to go after terrorists. Obama is all for the enemy and NOT for our troops. Just like how Obama favors the Muslim brotherhood.

Snake Oil Salesman Obama Continues To Push His Unconstitutional Phony Health Care

Obama Continues Trying to Sell His ObamaCare Disaster; Blames Fox News for Public’s Negative View of ObamaCare

The traveling freak show that is Barack Obama’s attempt to sell ObamaCare continues.

This time, he blames nasty old Fox News for confusing everyone about how wonderful ObamaCare actually is! We are three and a half years since ObamaCare was passed into law, and public opinion about it only continues to get more negative. That’s because it is a disaster. No amount of denials by Obama will change the reality that it is unworkable and un-American.

Hollywood's New Favorite Cars Are Armored and Electrified

Hollywood's New Favorite Cars Are Armored and Electrified

Celebrities from Steven Seagal to Kanye West are rolling in the latest status ride: Luxury vehicles that can take a bullet -- or shock a paparazzo.

Publicist Ronni Chasen was waiting at a red light in Beverly Hills in 2010 when she was shot five times through the car's closed passenger window and killed. Christopher Wallace, aka Biggie Smalls, was leaving a party in L.A. when a gunman sprayed the door of the rap star's Suburban with 9 mm bullets, striking Wallace four times and killing him.

The combination of guns, death and the particular vulnerability that a car on a public street presents to stars who are under siege from paparazzi and stalkers hits close to home for many in L.A.'s celebrity culture, where spending lavishly on personal security is a seldom-discussed necessity.

According to Aaron Cohen, director of IMS Security in Hollywood, whose clients have included Katy Perry, Kate Moss and Charlie Sheen, the cost to secure the home of a tabloid-exposed family like that of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can top $1 million a year. So it's inevitable that celebrities -- as well as Hollywood's high-net-worth agents, studio executives and producers -- would extend their security periphery to include the possession that serves as a mobile status-signifier in this car-obsessed city.

Enter the armored vehicle. The trend got rolling in L.A. in the aftermath of the 1992 riots, when navigating the jittery city in military-derived SUVs like the Mercedes G-500 suddenly seemed prudent. (Arnold Schwarzenegger was a famous early adopter.) Now, heavily armored vehicles designed to withstand large-caliber ordinance are turning up at valets around town.

At the extreme end of the spectrum is the Prombron Iron Diamond armored vehicle from Latvia's Dartz Motorz Co. (Dartz manufactured Sacha Baron Cohen's gold-plated presidential SUV featured in The Dictator.) According to car news website Jalopnik, Kanye West recently ordered two Iron Diamonds, for $1.2 million each. New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith was spotted in Manhattan's Meatpacking District parking a $450,000 Gurkha F5 armored truck -- the same brute driven by Dwayne Johnson in Fast Five.

Mercedes, BMW and Bentley quietly manufacture armored versions of their cars. The BMW 7 Series High Security can withstand armor-piercing bullets and is outfitted with run-flat tires and a sealed ventilation system in case of attack by chemical weapons.

The cars aren't sold in the U.S., leaving plenty of business for companies like Texas Armoring Corp. in San Antonio, which has custom-built bulletproof rides for Steven Seagal and rap star T.I. and for a referral-only L.A. company co-owned by America's Got Talent judge Melanie Brown and husband Stephen Belafonte that rents armored cars. Texas Armoring strips a vehicle to the frame and installs countermeasures like electrified door handles that deliver nonlethal shocks to carjackers and overzealous paparazzi. The finished cars take two to three months to convert at a cost of as much as $100,000 and are virtually indistinguishable from unarmored vehicles.

Texas Armoring executive vp Jason Forston says the company has seen demand in the U.S. soar the past five years. "A large part of it is celebrities, pro athletes and rock stars," Forston says. "You even have a lot of Hollywood executives, studio heads, people not in the spotlight." Forston credits the "climate of fear right now -- the growing gap between the haves and the have-nots" -- for the surge in sales.

IMS Security's Cohen is not quite convinced of the need for driving an armored Range Rover to dinner at Soho House: "I've been in the risk-management business for 10 years, and I can tell you statistically, with the exception of a few cases, I don't think there's a need for it. In my opinion, it's overkill."

On the other hand, says Robert Siciliano, a New York-based security expert: "A bullet costs about 25 cents. It will go through a nonarmored vehicle pretty efficiently. What's your life worth?" West earned about $20 million last year, according to Forbes. In that context, says Siciliano, "to spend three quarters of a million dollars on an armored vehicle isn't that outrageous. I bet Biggie Smalls' mom wishes he had."

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

The only thing I can think of that would be concerning about these is what if or when gang members buy these. The gangs that have a lot of drug money like cartels etc. That would be very concerning for the police to have to worry about.

This is Insane!!! Calif. youth football league imposes stiff fines for teams that win by 35-point margin

Calif. youth football league imposes stiff fines for teams that win by 35-point margin

Washington Times

The Northern California Federation Youth Football League changed its “mercy rule” this season, imposing hefty fines on teams that beat others too badly, a local television station reported.

If a team with players between the ages of 7 and 13 beats another team by 35 points or more, the coach will suffer a one-week suspension and the team will face a penalty of $200, KCRA reported.

“It’s not hurting the kids, it’s teaching them compassion for the other team,” said Robert Rochin, the deputy commissioner for the league. “It’s teaching them sportsmanship.”

Some parents say the rule goes too far.

“Now they are afraid their coaches are going to get suspended and they are not going to have a coach to come out here and play football,” Kelly McHugh, whose son is a kicker for Sutter High School, told the station.

“I can’t kick field goals or practice my field goals” said 13-year-old James McHugh.

League officials said they stiffened the penalties because too many coaches were violating the rule without consequence.

“We lose a lot of football players because their teams lose so badly,” Mr. Rochin said. “If they are constantly getting beat, who wants to play anymore? We lose kids all season long because of that.”

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

OMG this i so crazy, so insane. This will cause a lot of coaches to quit their jobs. They are not paid that much to begin with for one thing.

Liberals hate competition, IMO that is also why they are the ones that do the voter fraud in all the elections.

Rush Limbaugh: Ted Cruz Is Fighting For Freedom In The Greatest Tradition Of The American Freedom Fighters - video

RUSH: So Harry Reid wants to play the role of Grim Reaper, and he did. He looked just like the Grim Reaper. He walked in there and he shut Ted Cruz down at 12 noon. And that is after asking Ted Cruz to yield for a question from McCrazy -- uh, McCain, for 15 minutes. They wanted McCain to get in there and start debating party politics. But Cruz would have none of it. He shredded the guy from Illinois. I'm having a mental block. Yeah, Dick "Turban." He shredded Turban even after 20 hours of this. You know, folks, I could go for 21 more hours just with the health care stack that we've got today, about the absolute disaster this is.

It's not theater. This is real. This is about freedom. I know to a lot of people that sounds corny. "Freedom, come on, Rush, our freedom isn't threatened." Oh, but it is

It's precisely what Obamacare is all about, the loss of individual freedom, the loss of free markets.

RUSH continued......Ted Cruz is fighting for freedom in the greatest tradition of American freedom fighters.

Ted Cruz was doing exactly what he was elected to do. Ted Cruz was elected in Texas to do exactly what he did in this filibuster, and, by the way, what he has been doing since he arrived. He's one Republican who is doing exactly what he was elected to do.

Rush Limbaugh Interviews Ted Cruz After Epic 21 Hour Filibuster [FULL]

RUSH: Senator Cruz, we welcome you to the EIB microphone and the program. It's great to have you here, sir.

CRUZ: Rush, it's fantastic to be with you.

RUSH: I have to tell you, I've had so many people... I've been off the past couple of days, but, while this has been going on, I've had so many people e-mail me so uplifted by what you did in the last 21 hours and what you did leading up to it. So many people are so happy that there finally is some leadership. They're so happy that, finally, somebody is doing in Washington what they were elected to do, what they said they were going to do. And I just wanted to say, before we started: I'm sure you're hearing much the same thing, but I wanted you to know that, while you're getting all these arrows as pioneers do, there's a lot of appreciation and a lot of love for what you're doing out there.

CRUZ: Well, Rush, thank you so much. Thank you for that encouragement, and thank you for your leadership. You know, I really hope that over the course of this week we'll see more and more Republicans step forward. We had quite a few Republicans come down to the floor and support the effort, and I hope we'll see as many Republicans as possible, and even some Democrats, come together and listen to the American people. As you know... Every week, you talk to 20 million Americans. You know where the American people are on this, and it's not a close call. Obamacare isn't working and millions of Americans are hurting, and if the Senate just listened to the American people, we'll do the right thing and we'll vote to defund it.

Just a Few Quotes from Sen.Ted Cruz (R-TX) in his filibuster along with Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) Both Men Very Impressive

Cruz made the great point that the Republicans have voted to keep the Government going, just defund Obamacare. That it is Harry Reid and the President that appear to be opting to shut down the government, and Cruz encourages that they not do so, “We do not want to shut down the government”.

CRUZ: Obama doesn't respect 1st, 2nd, 4th or 5th Amends...or the rest of Constitution

If we want to mitigate all the harms that come from Obamacare, we have to stop it now, he argued.

Ted Cruz............Our constituents should know what we believe. If we're standing and fighting, our beliefs should be self-evident

Ted Cruz.......DC is using a rigged process to keep Obamacare funded.

Ted Cruz..........Why do Americans hold this body in such low regard? Because we pass laws that treat us better than them

Ted Cruz.........The American people are disgusted with business as usual in Washington.Elected officials are not listening to the people. The most fundamental problem in this nation is the problem that Washington has stopped listening to the American people

Ted Cruz..........If you're big, powerful, or politically connected, you can get an Obamacare exemption. Where's the exemption for the people?

Ted Cruz...............Sovereignty resides with We the People

Ted Cruz.............. “I don’t know if it’s the water, something in the air, the cherry blossoms, but people get here and they stop listening to the American people.”

“If the Federal Govt can force Hobby Lobby to break their religious beliefs, what stops them from forcing you to break yours?” ` Ted Cruz.

“If The Senators would listen to the American people, the vote would be 100 to ZERO”......Ted Cruz.

"When you have a jackboot on the back of your neck, it's hard to think about anything else." Sen Ted Cruz.

Ted Cruz............" I believe in the American Dream with all my heart and all my might-that's what's being jeopardized by Obamacare"

Ted Cruz...........You know the team each of us is on? It's the American team.

Ted Cruz........There is a reason why members of Congress, who support Obamacare for the American people, want out of it

Ted Cruz................Every Senator should ask him or herself, "what is the right thing to do for your constituents?"

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

There were so many things he said that were so good. I hope they will be online in the next few days.

Isn't it sad that there are very few times you can think back to & say "wow that political official actually fought for me?"

I watched it live on C-Span and put many posts about it at my Facebook page.

God bless Senator’s Cruz and Lee . They truly work well together. I am really impressed with both of these fine men.

It is now almost 5:00 a.m. EST here and Senator Cruz now in the 15th hour, Senator Lee at his side. Two great men.

CA Lawmakers Move to Stop Illegal Immigrants From Being Deported

CA Lawmakers Move to Stop Illegal Immigrants From Being Deported

FOX News

Despite the rise of illegal immigration, California lawmakers are moving to pass a bill called the “Trust Act” that would halt deportation of illegal immigrants for “minor crimes” and prohibit law enforcement from cooperating with I.C.E. agents. The bill is being considered by Gov. Jerry Brown and some are saying the bill will violate federal code 8 1373(a). Immigrant advocates call it an “important strike back against the Obama administration’s Secure Communities program.” - See more at:

“If you or I were victimized by someone stealing our identity, selling drugs in our community, burglarizing our home or embezzling our money, that’s okay? That’s a minor crime under this bill,” complained Marin County Sheriff Robert Doyle. “If this law passes, we will not be able to put holds on people who have previously been deported. So someone could be deported one, two, three, four — 10 times and that would not be cause for us to put a hold on them.”

The California District Attorneys Association and the California Sheriffs’ Association oppose the law, in part because it also conflicts with federal statutes.

“It makes no sense and is unconstitutional,” said former ICE Director Julie Myers Wood. “The federal government has sole authority to enforce immigration law. In this instance California is telling the feds what you can and cannot do.”

Wood and others find it ironic, considering a dozen California cities boycotted Arizona when it challenged the supremacy of federal authority in immigration enforcement. This time, however, California officials don’t seem to mind challenging that authority.

One man's ObamaCare nightmare

One man's ObamaCare nightmare

FOX News

Kentucky family receives nasty surprise in the mail in the form of a letter telling them their health insurance will almost triple in 2014 due to ObamaCare.

Andy and Amy Mangione of Louisville, Ky. and their two boys are just the kind of people who should be helped by ObamaCare. But they recently got a nasty surprise in the mail.

"When I saw the letter when I came home from work," Andy said, describing the large red wording on the envelope from his insurance carrier, "(it said) 'your action required,benefit changes, act now.' Of course I opened it immediately."

It had stunning news. Insurance for the Mangiones and their two boys,which they bought on the individual market, was going to almost triple in 2014 --- from $333 a month to $965.

The insurance carrier made it clear the increase was in order to be compliant with the new health care law.

"This isn't a Cadillac plan, this isn't even a silver plan," Mangione said, referring to higher levels of coverage under ObamaCare.

"This is a high deductible plan where I'm assuming a lot of risk for my health insurance for my family. And nothing has changed, our boys are healthy-- they're young --my wife is healthy. I'm healthy, nothing in our medical history has changed to warrant a tripling of our premiums.

"Well I'm the one that does the budget,” said his wife. "Eventually I've got that coming down the pike that I gotta figure out what we're gonna cut what we're gonna do, to afford a $1,000 a month premium."

Their insurance company, Humana, declined to comment, but the notice to the Mangiones carried this paragraph:

" If your policy premium increased, you should know this isn't unique to Humana -- premium increases generally will occur industry-wide.

"Increases aren't based on your individual claims or changes in health status," it continued. "Many other factors go in to your premium including: ACA compliance, including the addition of new essential health benefits."

ACA, of course, is the abbreviation for the President's new law, the Affordable Care Act -- which for the Mangiones will be anything but affordable because the law adds a new tax on every insurance policy and requires a list of additional benefits the Mangiones didn’t want to pay for.

Robert Zirkelbach, spokesman for American Health Insurance Plans, which represents insurers,explained that "for people who currently choose to purchase a high deductible, low premium policy that's more affordable for them, they are now being required to add all these new benefits to their policy.

That," he says, "is also going to add to the cost of their health insurance premiums."

This comes amid a huge debate over whether ObamaCare will raise or lower insurance rates.

This is all so very scary. I have had nightmares about it.

Hero of the mall massacre: Off duty soldier with a handgun saved 100 lives as terrorists ran amok

Hero of hero of the mall massacre: Off duty soldier with a handgun saved 100 lives as terrorists ran amok

An off-duty member of the SAS emerged as a hero of the Nairobi siege yesterday, after he was credited with saving up to 100 lives.

The soldier was having coffee at the Westgate mall when it was attacked by Islamists on Saturday.

With a gun tucked into his waistband, he was pictured helping two women from the complex.

He is said to have returned to the building on a dozen occasions, despite intense gunfire.

A friend in Nairobi said: ‘What he did was so heroic. He was having coffee with friends when it happened.

‘He went back in 12 times and saved 100 people. Imagine going back in when you knew what was going on inside.’

Sources said the soldier was with the Special Air Service, or SAS. He cannot be named for security reasons.

The British Special Forces regularly train and operate out of Kenya, and have been involved in tracking UK citizens involved with hardline Islamists in Somalia and Yemen.

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

A good guy with a gun is far better than a good guy without a gun. In this case, 100 people are alive because this sheepdog had his fangs at the ready and the know how to use them.

She should be in prison! Lois Lerner, IRS official in tea party scandal, forced out for ‘neglect of duties’

Lois Lerner, IRS official in tea party scandal, forced out for ‘neglect of duties’

Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the IRS tea party targeting scandal, retired from the agency Monday morning after an internal investigation found she was guilty of “neglect of duties” and was going to call for her ouster, according to congressional staff.

Her departure marks the first person to pay a significant price in the scandal, though Republicans were quick to say her decision doesn’t put the matter to rest, and pointed out that she can still be called before Congress to testify.

The IRS confirmed Ms. Lerner’s retirement in a statement, but said it couldn’t release any more information because of privacy concerns.

But Rep. Sander Levin, ranking Democrat on the HouseWays and Means Committee, said an Accountability Review Board set up to investigate the people at the agency involved with the scandal, completed their review and were set to recommend her ouster. The review board, though, found no evidence of political bias, he said.

Ms. Lerner was head of the exempt organizations division of the IRS, which oversaw applications for tax-exempt status, including those from political groups. …

Just because Lois Lerner is retiring from the IRS does not mean the investigation is over. Far from it,” said Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee. “In fact, there are many serious unanswered questions that must be addressed so we can get to the truth.”

The IRS Scandal involves:

At least 292 conservative groups targeted
At least 5 pro-Israel groups targeted
Constitutional groups targeted
Groups that criticized Obama administration were targeted
At least two pro-life groups targeted
A Texas voting-rights group was targeted
Conservative activists and businesses were targeted.
At least 88 IRS agents were involved in the targeting scandal
At least one conservative Hispanic group was targeted
IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed

Congress needs to make sure Lois Lerner retires all the way to prison.

I agree she needs to go to prison, This getting away with things needs to stop.

Good Grief! Biden Pushes For Amnesty While In Mexico City

Biden Pushes For Amnesty While In Mexico City


Speaking at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Mexico City on Friday, Vice President Joe Biden said that the international partnership he and President Barack Obama are seeking to build–including one between the United States and Mexico–are “literally going to shape the future for my country for the next 10, 20, 30, 40 years.”

Part of that future, Biden said, should involve letting “undocumented” people “out of the shadows” in the United States—terminology the administration and others have used to describe a policy that would legalize illegal aliens and allow them to eventually become U.S. citizens.

“With regard to immigration, let me make two things absolutely clear,” Biden said in Mexico City. “It is not only from the perspective of the President, myself and the American people a matter of justice, respect, and according dignity to all people to bring 11 million undocumented men, women, and children out of the shadows, but it’s also overwhelmingly in the self-interest, the economic self-interest of the United States.”

“So I want to make it clear to you that President Obama is deeply invested in the maturation of this relationship at every level–at every level,” said Biden. “This is a different day. This is a different day.

Germany's Angela Merkel is heading for a third term

Angela Merkel is heading for a third term

Angela Merkel is heading for a third term as Germany’s chancellor, as exit polls showed she could even be on course for the historic achievement of an absolute majority in the country’s parliament.

An early projection by the state broadcaster ARD on Sunday evening showed Mrs Merkel’s Christian Democrat party (CDU) winning 301 seats in the 598-seat Bundestag, enough to form a government without a coalition partner. Later projections suggested, however, that she could fall just short of an absolute majority.

White House Staffers Have New Nickname For Obama: “Obam-me,” Call Him That “Because It’s All About Him”

White House Staffers Have New Nickname For Obama: “Obam-me,” Call Him That “Because It’s All About Him”

White House staffers have adopted a new and unflattering nickname for their boss: “Obam-me,” Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan says she heard in chats with a few senators.

And how did the staffers come up with that name?

“Because it’s all about him and his big thoughts,” Noonan writes in a column. “I guess the second-term team is not quite as adoring as the first.”

Noonan, a former speechwriter for Ronald Reagan, joins a wide swath of Republicans who have complained about the president's apparent self-absorption.

Just this week he was taken to task for going ahead with a speech attacking the GOP on the economy just as news of the Washington Navy Yard slaughter was coming out.

Former GOP congressman Joe Scarborough said Obama seemed "bored or disconnected or out of touch or something," adding, "He's president of the United States. He should be smart enough."

The Weekly Standard's Stephen Hayes called the decision to press on with the speech "small and petty."

55% Of Obama’s Twitter Followers Are Fake

55 percent of Obama’s Twitter followers are fake

An incredibly high percentage of President Obama’s Twitter followers are fake, while the opposite is true for Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

According to the Twitter analytics application, Status People, 55 percent of President Obama’s 36,802,378 Twitter followers — or approximately 20,240,107 followers — are fake.

A ‘fake follower,’ according to Status People, is a spam account following the user. During the presidential election season, candidates’ Twitter accounts came under public scrutiny for possibly purchasing followers to try to bolster their social media credibility.

Twenty-four percent of Obama’s Twitter followers are inactive, and only 21 percent — or approximately 7,728,499 followers — are real.

“Is This America”? Father Arrested For Speaking Out Against Common Core At Public Meeting

Robert Small was arrested for speaking out of turn at an MSDE-sponsored informational meeting on Common Core, the new federal curriculum for Maryland schools.

Robert Small:

He said: “I want to know how many parents here are aware that the goal of the Common Core standards isn’t to prepare kids for full-fledged universities, it’s to prepare them for community college…..Parents, take control. We’re sick of this. This is not a CNN political game. This is a public town hall… Listen, don’t stand for this. You’re sitting here like cattle. You have questions. Confront them. They don’t want to do it in public…. Parents, you need to question these people….Do the research, it’s online.”

“Is This America”? Father Arrested For Speaking Out Against Common Core At Public Meeting

A parent in Towson, Md., was arrested Thursday night at a public forum after vocally expressing his concerns about the Baltimore County School District’s plan to use Common Core standards in its curriculum.

Robert Small, a concerned father, was forcefully removed from the meeting by a police officer after he interrupted Baltimore County Schools Superintendent Dallas Dance during the question-and-answer portion of the forum.

The meeting apparently didn’t allow parents to stand up and ask questions or comment. Parents and other attendants were instead asked to write their questions on a piece of paper and officials would read them.

However, Small began speaking out against the district’s use of Common Core, prompting a security guard, who was also a police officer, to approach him and order him to leave. “Let’s go!” he said sternly.

When Small didn’t immediately comply, the officer began pulling his arm and pushing him towards the exit. Some audience members gasped at the cop’s use of force.

“Don’t stand for this,” the father said as he was dragged out. “You are sitting here like cattle! Is this America?”

Small also urged other parents to demand answers on Common Core and the curriculum being used to educate their children.

As the Baltimore Sun reports, the officer then “pushed Small and then escorted him into the hall, handcuffed him and had him sit on the curb in front of the school.”

Small was charged with second-degree assault of a police officer and faces a $2,500 fine and up to 10 years in prison. He was also charged with disturbing a school operation, which carries an additional $2,500 and up to six months in jail.

Despite some opposition from parents, the Maryland State Department of Education reportedly plans to go forward with its implementation of Common Core standards, joining 45 other states and Washington, D.C., in adopting the standards for the first time this year.

“Look, I am being manhandled and shut down because I asked inconvenient questions,” Small told the Baltimore Sun after the incident. “Why won’t they allow an open forum where there can be a debate? We are told to sit there and be lectured to about how great common core is.”

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

Until the people are willing to stand together we are done. This is a disgrace. This is censorship of the first order.

Horrible Common Core education standards are doing this: Fourth Graders Taught About ‘Pimps’ and ‘Mobstaz’ in Louisiana

Karen Bracken gives an excellent presentation on the subversive Common Core threat to education at a Chattanooga Tea Party meeting held on April 18, 2013

Fourth Graders Taught About ‘Pimps’ and ‘Mobstaz’ in Louisiana

FOX News

Fourth grade students in Vermilion Parish, La. were given a homework assignment that included words like “Po Pimp” and “mobstaz,” but school officials said the worksheet was age appropriate based on an education website affiliated with Common Core education standards.

“I try to instill values in my son,” parent Brittney Badeaux told Fox News. “My goal is for him to ultimately to become a great man, a family man, a well-rounded man. And now my son wants to know what a pimp is.”

Badeaux was helping her 9-year-old son with his homework when she heard him say the words “Po Pimp” and “mobstaz.”

“I couldn’t believe it at first – hearing him read it to me,” she told Fox News. “So I looked at the paper and read the entire article. It was filled with Ebonics.”

The worksheet, obtained by Fox Radio affiliate KPEL provided contextual examples of the word “twist.” It included references to tornadoes and the 1950’s dance craze – the “Twist.”

But it also included a paragraph about “Twista” – a rapper with the group Speedknot Mobstaz who performs a single titled, “Po-Pimp.”

“It was really inappropriate for my child,” Badeaux said. “He doesn’t’ know what a pimp or mobster is.”

She also took issue with the school sending home a worksheet that intentionally misspelled words.

“I try to teach him morals and respect and to speak correctly,” she said. “It’s hard for a fourth grader to understand Ebonics when you’re trying to teach him how to spell and write correctly.”

Vermilion Parish School Superintendent Jerome Puyau told Fox News the “po-pimp” assignment was aligned to a fourth grade English Language Arts standard for Common Core.

“Out of context, this word is inappropriate,” Puyau said. “However, within the Common Core standards, they do want us to discuss real world texts.”

The Common Core State Standards initiative is a plan devised by the nation’s governors and backed by the Obama administration to set a uniform standard for grades K-12. In practice, it will ensure that every child in the nation reaches the same level of learning. So far, 45 states have agreed to use Common Core – including Louisiana.

“The Common Core curriculum, like it or not – we have to make our students successful,” the superintendent said. “We know that in New York proficiency in state testing was very low. We foresee that our students will not be successful unless with align everything to the common core standards.”

And that’s why fourth graders were learning about pimps and mobstaz.

Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) says Obama is the Most Dangerous President Ever - He Is Correct!!

Rep. Trent Franks says Obama is the Most Dangerous President Ever

Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) had some choice words for President Barack Obama this week. Franks called him “the most dangerous president this country has ever seen,” and said that “if his goal was to diminish America, he has been quite competent. But if his goal was to strengthen America, then he has been…incredibly incompetent.”

The comments came during an interview with Mallory Factor earlier this week.

Franks touched on the defund Obamacare debate, U.S. intervention in Syria, the deteriorating U.S.-Israel relationship and the future of war.

Franks said he was concerned for Israel, who has cautiously watched the current administration has paid “lip service” to our long-term ally instead of making policy. He said that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad made a “calculated decision” to use chemical weapons on his own people because, in part, he had watched Obama do nothing to interfere and stop Iranian or North Korean ambitions for nuclear weapons.

“Jihadists are laughing at the administration,” he said.

Franks was confident that Obamacare would either be defunded by Congress or declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court because of a long-standing clause in the Constitution: The Origination Clause. The clause stipulates that all taxes and revenues must be generated by the House of Representatives. Franks said that the Supreme Court decision that made Obamacare a tax bill (because it raised revenue in 17 different places) and because the bill originated in the Democratic-controlled Senate, it was pretty clear that it was unlawful.

“Either the Obamacare is a dead letter or the origination clause is, we can’t have both,” he said.

Dictator Freak Obama Temper Tantrum: Republicans 'trying to mess with me'

Republicans 'trying to mess with me'...

Washington Post

LIBERTY, Mo. — With Washington facing a potential government shutdown, President Obama traveled to the heartland Friday and delivered a combative rebuke of congressional Republicans for “trying to mess with me” instead of governing responsibly.

Obama railed at length against Republican lawmakers, whom he accused of “holding the economy hostage” by threatening not to fund the government and not to raise the government’s debt limit.

“Unfortunately right now, the debate going on in Congress is not meeting the test of helping middle class families,” Obama said. “They’re not focused on you. They’re focused on politics. They’re focused on trying to mess with me. They’re not focused on you.”

Obama’s rousing speech at a growing Ford manufacturing plant here on the outskirts of Kansas City amounted to an opening salvo against House Republicans heading into another intense skirmish over federal spending.

Obama spoke a couple of hours after the House passed a short-term budget bill that would pay for government operations through mid-December but withhold funding for Obama’s signature health-care law.

Awesome Rep. Trey Gowdy and His Explosive Claim About Benghazi Survivors

Rep. Trey Gowdy’s Explosive Claim About Benghazi Survivors ( from last month )

The Obama administration is “changing names” of the Benghazi survivors and “creating aliases” to keep them hidden from congressional investigators and the American people, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) told Greta Van Susteren on Thursday night. He also said the administration is “dispersing them around the country” to keep them out of sight.

Gowdy’s stunning claims were overshadowed by CNN’s bombshell report that revealed there were “dozens” of CIA operatives on the ground in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, the night of the deadly attack that killed four Americans. Meanwhile, the CIA is taking “unprecedented” to keep whatever it was doing in Benghazi a secret, according to the report.

“Stop and think what things are most calculated to get at the truth? Talk to people with first-hand knowledge. What creates the appearance and perhaps the reality of a cover-up? Not letting us talk with people who have the most amount of information, dispersing them around the country and changing their names,” Gowdy said.

These new Benghazi revelations come at the same time that the Obama administration has decided to start referring to the Benghazi and IRS scandals as “phony.”

House Speaker John Boehner yesterday making it clear that the U.S. House of Representatives will tomorrow pass a Continuing Resoultion that funds the Government but defunds ObamaCare. Boehner said that is because ObamaCare “is a train wreck,” and Republicans are committed to protecting the American people from it.

Boehner then mentioned a litany of examples of major spending reforms in the past that have been enacted as part of increasing the nation’s debt limit. Obama said yesterday that never in American History has that been done! He could not be more wrong. There is NOTHING more effective Congress could do to help reduce the nation’s debt than to DEFUND ObamaCare! It is going to bankrupt the country in the years ahead.

Five years ago this week the global financial crisis was triggered by the collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. But this week also marks the five-year anniversary of another, initially quieter, event: the application for approval of the Keystone XL pipeline to carry Canadian crude directly to the U.S. Gulf coast.

On Sept. 19, 2008, TransCanada Corp.TRP.T +0.84% filed with the U.S. State Department to ship an additional 500,000 barrels of oil a day through an expanded, then-unnamed pipe in its existing Keystone system linking Canada and the U.S. The company had formally announced its plans to file two months earlier.

What the Calgary-based operator expected to be an 18-to-24 month waiting period has now dragged on for five years, with no firm deadline in sight.

Supporters in the U.S. say the pipeline will bring construction jobs and needed heavy crude from Canada to offset declining imports from Mexico and Venezuela. But critics say approving KXL would accelerate the development of Alberta’s oil sands and exacerbate greenhouse gas emissions.

TransCanada says it’s not prepared to wait out the Obama administration. “I don’t think we’d wait another three years,” said Alex Pourbaix, TransCanada’s president of energy and oil pipelines. “If the project were to be delayed that long, I’d likely see a scenario where we’d utilize all that equipment on other projects. Obviously, we don’t see it coming to that. ”

Home Depot To Dump 20,000 Part-Time Employees Onto Train Wreck Obamacare Exchanges

Home Depot To Dump 20K Workers Onto Train Wreck Obamacare Exchanges

Home Depot Inc. (HD), the world’s largest home improvement retailer, plans to end medical coverage for about 20,000 part-time employees and direct them to government-sponsored exchanges scheduled to open next month as companies revamp benefits to fit the U.S. Affordable Care Act.

Employees with fewer than 30 hours a week will no longer be offered limited liability medical coverage, Stephen Holmes, a spokesman, said today by telephone. About 5 percent of Atlanta-based Home Depot’s 340,000 employees are enrolled in that plan.

I would love to see a body count of the number of people being thrown into this madness from their jobs that voted FOR Obama. Just curious! Every time I read about another company and another company etc. laying people off, putting people on part time and turning them over to obamacare, I can help but wonder how many are now waking up to the biggest mistake in their life they made voting for the POS Obama.

Illegal Aliens To Receive 650 million in Welfare Payments From Los Angeles County

Illegal Aliens To Receive 650 million in Welfare Payments From Los Angeles County

A projected $650 million in welfare benefits will be distributed to illegal alien parents in 2013, county officials said Monday.

…An estimated 100,000 children of 60,000 undocumented parents receive aid in Los Angeles County, according to Antonovich, who said this year’s projections — up about $1 million from the nearly $53 million in total benefits issued in July 2012 — underscore the economic impact of the nation’s immigration debate.

“When you add the $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for healthcare, the total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers exceeds $1.6 billion dollars a year,” Antonovich said in a statement. “These costs do not even include the hundreds of millions of dollars spent annually for education.”

But wait, I thought we’ve been told this doesn’t happen? I thought illegal aliens were supposed to be a huge economic benefit to Americans? Well, how much of a benefit are illegal aliens in LA county, where they’re leeching over a billion dollars a year from the wallets of productive Americans?

Caught on Video: The Simple Gesture by 11-Year-Old Boy That Lifted the Morale of an Entire Police Department

Caught on Video: The Simple Gesture by 11-Year-Old Boy That Lifted the Morale of an Entire Police Department

An 11-year-old boy in Greenfield, Wis., felt compelled to donate money to his local police station after learning about the heroic actions of police officers and firefighters in the aftermath of the deadly 9/11 attacks in New York City.

The boy, Max Siepert, walked into the police station in Greenfield last week and gave $10.03 to the front desk officer.

Then he walked away.

The gesture moved police officers so much that they used surveillance footage to track the boy down so they could thank him.

Siepert was extremely humble when he was outed as the generous stranger.

“One day it will make a difference… not a really big difference, but it’s something. If every person would do that it’d be such a great world. It would be awesome!” he excitedly told WISN-TV.

Assistant Police Chief Paul Schlecht said the generous act, which was a first for the station, has lifted the morale of the entire police station. “The money will go to the police foundation,” WISN-TV reports.

FOX News announces new prime-time lineup

FOX News announces new prime-time lineup

The Fox News Channel’s new evening programming schedule will premiere on Oct. 7, with another show joining what is already cable news’ top-rated lineup.

“On the Record” with Greta Van Sustren will air at 7 p.m. ET,

followed by “The O’Reilly Factor,” continuing in its 8 p.m. slot.

Megyn Kelly then debuts her new show, “The Kelly File,” at 9 p.m.,

followed immediately by “Hannity” at 10 p.m.

Chief News Anchor and Managing Editor Shepard Smith will be available throughout to insert the latest breaking news via the FOX News Deck.

The evening’s new entrant, “The Kelly File” will focus on late-breaking news stories and in-depth investigative reporting. The show will air in a live format, embrace a stronger social media presence, and will capitalize on Kelly’s skills as a former litigator. The spot is a new venture for Kelly, who previously hosted “America Live” during the day.

“In 2003, I was an unhappy lawyer, and made a decision to change my life,” Kelly said in a statement. “Ten years later, I've been able to do that thanks in large part to Roger Ailes, a boss who always gives me the same directive: ‘Be yourself and have fun.’”

Van Susteren is excited by her move to an earlier time. "After 11-and-a-half years number one at 10 p.m. and driving home near midnight, I am 'to the moon thrilled’ at a new challenge (and a new drive! Half the year I won't even need headlights!)."

Immediately following “On the Record,” “The O’Reilly Factor” will continue to air at 8 p.m., uncovering news items from the established wisdom, operating against the grain of more traditional interview style programs. O’Reilly has had the number one cable news program since 2001.

Sean Hannity, meanwhile, is looking forward to the change in his time slot. “I am very happy to be moving to 10 p.m.. The ability to be live or on tape greatly increases the flexibility of the show and offers me, after 17 years, the opportunity to be home at night with my family.”

Ailes, FOX News Chairman and CEO, said with the top 13 shows in cable news, “FOX News already redefined prime-time viewing to extend well beyond the antiquated 8-11 p.m. format. We’ve developed a deep bench of engaging and thought-provoking personalities that have grown with FOX News as it has evolved into the most influential and successful cable network in television. These changes will enable the network to continue setting the industry standard for years to come.”

Obama waives ban on arming terrorists to allow aid to Syrian Jihadists

Washington Examiner

Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to "vetted" opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.

Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad's regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah.

The president, citing his authority under the Arms Export Control Act, announced today that he would "waive the prohibitions in sections 40 and 40A of the AECA related to such a transaction."

Those two sections prohibit sending weaponry to countries described in section 40(d): "The prohibitions contained in this section apply with respect to a country if the Secretary of State determines that the government of that country has repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism," Congress stated in the Arms Control Export Act.

"For purposes of this subsection, such acts shall include all activities that the Secretary determines willfully aid or abet the international proliferation of nuclear explosive devices to individuals or groups or willfully aid or abet an individual or groups in acquiring unsafeguarded special nuclear material," the law continues.

The law allows the president to waive those prohibitions if he "determines that the transaction is essential to the national security interests of the United States."

Under section 40(g) of the AECA, the Obama team must also provide Congress — at least 15 days before turning over the weapons — "the name of any country involved in the proposed transaction, the identity of any recipient of the items to be provided pursuant to the proposed transaction, and the anticipated use of those items," along with a list of the weaponry to be provided, when they will be delivered, and why the transfer is key to American security interests.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., endorsed providing military assistance to the Syrian opposition during an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday.

"Our intelligence agencies, I think, have a very good handle on who to support and who not to support," Corker said. "And there's going to be mistakes. We understand some people are going to get arms that should not be getting arms. But we still should be doing everything we can to support the free Syrian opposition."

Typical Pathetic House Democrat Eleanor Holmes Norton Uses D.C. Naval Yard Shooting To Make Case For Gun Control

House Dem Eleanor Holmes Norton Uses D.C. Naval Yard Shooting To Make Case For Gun Control

Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) said Washington, D.C., has not had a day like Monday since the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001.

Homes Norton said there is no reason to believe that Monday’s shooting at Navy Yard in D.C. that killed 12 people was an act of terrorism. But she said it “does not take a terrorist” to commit mass murder with the amount of guns in the U.S.

“Apparently there is no indication that this was a terrorist event,” Holmes Norton said during a press conference Monday. “But I hope that we all understand that with all these guns loose in the society, it does not take a terrorist to do what was done here today … to spoil the reputation of this rising neighborhood.”

Benghazi Dad Charles Woods: “Ty’s Body Left On Tarmac For Three Hours”, No Rescue Sent, Obama Off To Vegas

Benghazi Dad Charles Woods: “Ty’s Body Left On Tarmac For Three Hours”, No Rescue Sent, Obama Off To Vegas

Mr. Woods said he sent a letter to the President requesting answers on Benghazi, but he has received no answers as of yet. When asked about President, he said:

I wish he had taken the time the night of September 11, not to go to bed, not to go prepare to collect money in Las Vegas, but I wish he had taken time then to watch more of the video of the live time ambush attack at the Embassy and that I wish that he had sent the troops that everybody knows were available to rescue those people…

In this case, there was no rescue attempt, no planes sent. In fact, Ty’s body was left on the tarmac for three hours and there wasn’t even an American plane sent to rescue or even take his body home.

They had to commandeer a Libyan plane and didn’t even know where they would be taken in order to remove his body from the tarmac. Is that the way to treat an American hero?

In additional comment not in the above video, Mr. Woods noted that around the time of his funeral he had made contact with one of the survivors, but that since that time, he has been unable to get any response to inquiries to that person’s phone or email.

Mr. Woods also noted he was informed of a conversation by General Carter Ham that there were assets available to use for a rescue but Ham was not allowed to deploy those assets.

Obamacare Punishes Part-Time Workers- Trader’s Joe’s Part Time Employees told No Inusrance Coverage For You

What Trader Joe’s teaches us about Obamacare

Washington Post

The grocery chain, in a memo obtained by the Huffington Post, told part-time employees that it would end their health insurance benefits for employees who work less than 30 hours a week, sending them instead to the new public insurance marketplaces with an extra $500 to help purchase coverage.

“Depending on income earned outside of Trader Joe’s, we believe that with the $500 from Trader Joe’s and the tax credits available under the ACA, many crew members should be able to obtain health-care coverage at very little, if any, net cost,” the company said Thursday in a statement to Bloomberg.

So what does this decision by Trader Joe’s tell us about the Affordable Care Act? A few things.

Before we get to that, though, its worth thinking about why Trader Joe’s – or any employer – offers health insurance right now.

While health benefits are expensive, companies typically offer them to stay competitive. A robust health plan can go a long way in wooing potential employees – especially when most of the market doesn’t offer part-time workers the opportunity to buy coverage.

Welcome to Second Class Medicine…if you can get it at all.

Rand Paul Just Like His Dad Ron Paul...both Hate Israel!

Paul Criticizes Pro-Israel Evangelicals

In an interview with Buzzfeed’s McKay Coppins, Kentucky senator Rand Paul criticized “some” Christians who support Israel and the Jews and those Christians’ “overeagerness” to go to war. Adding to sentiments he expressed in a speech earlier this year, Paul told Buzzfeed:

“I think some within the Christian community are such great defenders of the promised land and the chosen people that they think war is always the answer, maybe even preemptive war. And I think it’s hard to square the idea of a preemptive war and, to me, that overeagerness [to go to] war, with Christianity.”

Obamacare Employee Accidentally Sends Out Email Containing 2400 Americans Social Security Numbers

Obamacare Employee Accidentally Sends Out Email Containing 2400 Americans Social Security Numbers

With Obamacare’s massive Patient Data Hub poised to open soon, a sloppy mistake by an Obamacare employee hasn’t exactly inspired confidence that Americans’ private information will be closely guarded by Obamacare’s powers-that-be. As the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports (and Andrew Johnson highlights at NRO), an Obamacare exchange employee in Minnesota accidentally sent out an email containing 2,400 Americans’ Social Security numbers.

The Star Tribune writes:

“A MNsure employee accidentally sent an e-mail file to an Apple Valley insurance broker’s office on Thursday that contained Social Security numbers, names, business addresses and other identifying information on more than 2,400 insurance agents.

“An official at MNsure, the state’s new online health insurance exchange, acknowledged it had mishandled private data. A MNsure security manager called the broker, Jim Koester, and walked him and his assistant through a process of deleting the file from their computer hard drives.

“Koester said he willingly complied, but was unnerved.

“‘The more I thought about it, the more troubled I was,’ he said. ‘What if this had fallen into the wrong hands? It’s scary. If this is happening now, how can clients of MNsure be confident their data is safe?’”

Government Seeking To Include “Social And Behavioral Data” In Health Records It Can Access

Government Seeking To Include “Social And Behavioral Data” In Health Records It Can Access

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) wants to require health care providers to include “social and behavioral” data in Electronic Health Records (EHR) and to link patient’s records to public health departments, it was announced last week.

Health care experts say the proposal raises additional privacy concerns over Americans’ personal health information, on top of worries that the Obamacare “data hub” could lead to abuse by bureaucrats and identify theft.

The project sets out to identify “core data standards for behavioral and social determinants of health to be included in EHRs.”

Critics suggested this would create new bureaucracies and negatively impact health care.

“This sounds like an example of the federal government further intruding on the practice of medicine,” said Chris Jacobs, a senior policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation.

The CMS currently covers 100 million people through Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children’s Hospital Insurance Program and is tasked with running Obamacare.

TSA Agent Arrested For Conspiring To Smuggle Illegal Aliens Into The Country

TSA Agent Arrested For Conspiring To Smuggle Illegal Aliens Into The Country

A Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent was arrested Friday for conspiring to smuggle illegal aliens into the country.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officers arrested David Alexander Díaz-Torres in Orlando, Fla., according to the Justice Department.

Díaz-Torres and five others were charged in a 13-count indictment for bringing, transporting, harboring, and shielding illegal aliens within the United States.

According to a Justice Department press release, a group of Brazilian nationals were smuggled through the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Díaz-Torres allegedly allowed the Brazilians through a TSA security checkpoint without questioning them.

The group then flew to New York, Boston, and Philadelphia on commercial flights.

“It is very troubling when law enforcement authorities have to arrest a corrupt federal employee who is alleged to have undermined our nation’s security, our overall safety, and the public trust and confidence we place in those chosen to protect and serve,” A U.S. attorney said in a statement.

“The Justice Department’s commitment to preventing human smuggling, bringing smugglers to justice and assisting victims has never been stronger.”

CA Gov. Jerry Brown To Sign Bill Approving Non-Physician Abortions

CA Gov. Jerry Brown To Sign Bill Approving Non-Physician Abortions

A bill that would allow non-physicians to perform abortions in the first trimester of pregnancy is awaiting signature by Gov. Jerry Brown of California by Sep. 30. The bill, AB 154, passed both houses of the state legislature with strong support from Planned Parenthood and pro-choice groups. Planned Parenthood stands to benefit most directly from the bill, as non-physician staff at its clinics would be able to obtain abortion licenses.

One doctor–who identified himself as pro-choice–told Breitbart News that “the bill is a disaster since it sends us back 100 years to the problems of the complications from back-steet abortions.” The bill’s critics warn that the training provided to non-physician staff is weak, that supervision by physicians in clinics will be minimal, and that there is real risk of injury or death to women who will be treated in such conditions.

The California Medical Association has endorsed AB 154 because of “provisions for training in the bill and the amendments that clarify physician supervision.” Yet the training is to be provided by the Board of Registered Nursing, not by physicians, and the protocols for defining “supervision” have not been specified. There is nothing in the legislation requiring a physician to be present or on-site during an abortion.

The bill permits licensed non-physicians to perform two kinds of abortion in the first trimester–by medication, and by aspiration, which requires the insertion of medical instruments into the uterus. Though many doctors agree that non-physicians could provide medications with few risks, the idea that a non-physician would perform an invasive procedure such as aspiration strikes many as rife with risks.

"Elite" Syrian Unit Scatters Chemical Weapons Stockpile To As Many As 50 Sites To Avoid U.S. Detection

WSJ Report: Elite Syrian Unit Scatters Chemical Weapons Stockpile To As Many As 50 Sites To Avoid U.S. Detection

A secretive Syrian military unit at the center of the Assad regime’s chemical weapons program has been moving stocks of poison gases and munitions to as many as 50 sites to make them harder for the U.S. to track, according to American and Middle Eastern officials.

The movements of chemical weapons by Syria’s elite Unit 450 could complicate any U.S. bombing campaign in Syria over its alleged chemical attacks, officials said. It also raises questions about implementation of a Russian proposal that calls for the regime to surrender control of its stockpile, they said.

U.S. and Israeli intelligence agencies still believe they know where most of the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons are located, but with less confidence than six months ago, U.S. officials said.

Secretary of State John Kerry met Thursday in Geneva with his Russian counterpart to discuss a road map for ending the weapons program. The challenges are immense, Mr. Kerry said.

Arizona Ranchers Say Mexican Drug Lords Rule in U.S. Border Regions: ‘We’re Living By the Law Of the Cartels’

Arizona Ranchers Say Mexican Drug Lords Rule in U.S. Border Regions: ‘We’re Living By the Law Of the Cartels’

Arizona ranchers living along the Mexican border are fearful of the drug cartel and say the U.S. is “borderless”. The Arizona ranchers are speaking out to The Blaze and airing a special on the “For the Record” show this evening. The show promises to provide “never-before-seen surveillance videos taken from their ranches: proof that their ranches are being seized by drug traffickers and nefarious groups that use the cover of darkness to cross into the United States.”

Mary, an Arizona rancher who spoke to TheBlaze on condition of anonymity out of fear of retribution from the drug cartels, warned, “it’s not our country anymore.”

“We may be bound to the laws of our country,” she said. “But we’re living by the law of the cartels.”

Like Mary, many of the ranchers chose to speak on condition that they not be named out of fear for their lives but their stories are all similar. They say the U.S. is “borderless.”

Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels, who works closely with the ranchers living along his county’s 83-mile border with Mexico, told TheBlaze the increased violence along his community’s southern border is an example that the federal government is failing when it comes to border security.

“Border security should be a primary issue even before we talk about immigration reform,” said Dannels, who has spent more than 25 years in law enforcement along the border. “The biggest change from 1984 until current is the violence on the border.”

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

Border Sheriffs: DC Not Taking Border Security Seriously

Border Sheriffs: DC Not Taking Border Security Seriously


It's monsoon season in southern Arizona, so Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels has to drive slowly along the hilly, rocky, muddy terrain that covers the 83-mile border his county shares with Mexico.

He scans the horizon to see whether any immigrants or drug smugglers are approaching the 4-foot-high border fence. Glancing at the lights of a city in Mexico, he turns and says, "Seen any Border Patrol agents?"

Dannels' complaints about the lack of Border Patrol agents along the border suggests he supports a Senate plan to flood the Southwest border with 20,000 new agents. But he doesn't. He doesn't think border security proposals in the House will do much, either.

"The people in my county are very frustrated," Dannels says, looking at the lush green of a valley that will soon shrivel to brown in the desert sun. "They feel border security hasn't been taken seriously."

Congress returned from recess this week facing a busy schedule, featuring debates over Syria, health care and the debt limit.

But Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said they also will find time to dive into immigration.

The Senate and House have spent months crafting their own versions of overhauls to the nation's immigration laws. Yet Dannels is among more than a dozen sheriffs interviewed by USA TODAY who police the border from California to Texas and say the plans from Washington will do little to secure the border.

They say they have proposals that will work - more prosecutions of border crossers, closer screening of people going through border crossings, putting pressure on Mexico to do its part. But they feel they've been shoved aside by a Congress more interested in cutting a deal than finding solutions.

"They've had every organization up there except law enforcement. I just don't understand that," said Doña Ana County, N.M., Sheriff Todd Garrison. "If we just had a seat at the table and could express our concerns, it would at least shed some light on these issues."


The border with Mexico is a nearly 2,000-mile range of starkly differing terrain where the problems of how to stop illegal immigration depend on where you are - the beaches of San Diego, the mountains of Arizona, the wide-open deserts of New Mexico or the swift rivers in Texas.

The sweeping immigration bill passed by the Senate in July attempts to solve the problem with a $46 billion "border surge" that is mostly spent on adding 20,000 new Border Patrol agents, and $3 billion in new monitoring technology, including sensors, radars, drones and helicopters.

That surge won over Senate Republicans who pushed for a secure border before they could agree to grant a pathway to citizenship for the nation's undocumented immigrants, a provision that Democrats have insisted on.

But of the 17 sheriffs interviewed by USA TODAY, whose jurisdictions cover most of the U.S.-Mexico border, only one said they felt all those new agents were needed. The rest said they feel Border Patrol simply needs a new strategy and new technology.

"They're tripping over themselves now," Hudspeth County, Texas, Sheriff Arvin West said of the current 18,500 Border Patrol agents working the Southwest border.

The problem, West says, is that Border Patrol agents are no longer on the border, but working many miles inland. West has spent 30 years in the western Texas county where most of the border fence consists of posts strung with a few strands of barbed wire. It's dangerous work to patrol the wild, rugged terrain in the middle of the night.

He, like all other sheriffs interviewed, respect the Border Patrol agents who risk their lives to keep the border safe and secure.

"But put them on the damned border," he said. "In some places here, they are 60, 70 miles away. It's going to take some (courage) to go down there. When you first get down there ... you're going to (tick) the drug dealers off. But once they understand that you held the line, they're going to look for weaker spots further down the line."

From his years of experience, Sheriff Clint McDonald in Terrell County, Texas, knows that there are 38 points in his county where people from Mexico can cross the Rio Grande. Yet Border Patrol does not go there.

"I guess I'm stupid, but I would think if you put people at those 38 crossings, people wouldn't come across," he said.

But in many areas along the border, federal Border Patrol agents spend most of their time patrolling roads and highways farther inland. Typically, drivers on Interstate 8 in California, I-19 in Arizona and I-10 in Texas see Border Patrol at highway checkpoints where agents wave most cars through, but stop suspicious-looking vehicles for additional screening.

"Why can we drive 10 miles on the border and see three Border Patrol agents, but drive 3 miles north to our checkpoint and you have 30 (Border Patrol) vehicles parked there?" asked Sheriff Dannels in Cochise County. "That makes no sense."

CIA Begins Delivering Weapons To Syrian Rebels (al-Qaeda ??)

CIA Begins Delivering Weapons To Syrian Rebels (al-Qaeda ??)

Washington Post

The CIA has begun delivering weapons to rebels in Syria, ending months of delay in lethal aid that had been promised by the Obama administration, according to U.S. officials and Syrian figures. The shipments began streaming into the country over the past two weeks, along with separate deliveries by the State Department of vehicles and other gear — a flow of material that marks a major escalation of the U.S. role in Syria’s civil war.

The arms shipments, which are limited to light weapons and other munitions that can be tracked, began arriving in Syria at a moment of heightened tensions over threats by President Obama to order missile strikes to punish the regime of Bashar al-Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons in a deadly attack near Damascus last month.

The arms are being delivered as the United States is also shipping new types of nonlethal gear to rebels. That aid includes vehicles, sophisticated communications equipment and advanced combat medical kits.

U.S. officials hope that, taken together, the weapons and gear will boost the profile and prowess of rebel fighters in a conflict that started about 21 / 2 years ago.

Although the Obama administration signaled months ago that it would increase aid to Syrian rebels, the efforts have lagged because of the logistical challenges involved in delivering equipment in a war zone and officials’ fears that any assistance could wind up in the hands of jihadists. Secretary of State John F. Kerry had promised in April that the nonlethal aid would start flowing “in a matter of weeks.” [...]

While the State Department is coordinating nonlethal aid, the CIA is overseeing the delivery of weaponry and other lethal equipment to the rebels. An opposition official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss covert arms transfers, said U.S. intelligence personnel have begun delivering long-promised light weapons and ammunition to rebel groups in the past couple of weeks.

The weaponry “doesn’t solve all the needs the guys have, but it’s better than nothing,” the opposition official said. He added that Washington remains reluctant to give the rebels what they most desire: antitank and antiaircraft weapons.

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

We need those weapons; not our damned enemy!

I wonder how many Israeli planes/copters and American planes/copters are going to be shot down now with those Stinger Missiles we just handed to al-Qaeda for the asking.

General David Petraeus Chased Down By Disgusting Lib Students, Call Him A “Fascist” And “War Criminal” On First Day Of Class At CUNY

David Petraeus Chased Down By Lib Students, Call Him A “Fascist” And “War Criminal” On First Day Of Class At CUNY

Protesters harassed retired Gen. David Petraeus before he gave a lecture at The City University of New York (CUNY), Mediaite reported on Monday.

The student activists surrounded and followed the former CIA director as he walked down a street in New York City, shouting "Petraeus out of CUNY" and "every class, David," suggesting their plans to continue protesting his classes.

As Petraeus crossed the street, a student yelled, "That's Petraeus, he's a war criminal!"

"Disgusting, you should be ashamed of yourself," said another.

Months after resigning from the CIA after evidence of an extramarital affair surfaced, Petraeus was offered a position as a visiting professor at the Macaulay Honors College at CUNY.

After word spread that the retired general was offered a six-figure salary, his pay was cut to one dollar to "keep the focus on the students, on the school and on the teaching, and not have it be about the money," his lawyer said.

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

I would love to be in charge of punishing these students and believe me I would love it to the max and sleep very well at night.

General David Petraeus was good and he truly cared about the men and women that served under him.

When anyone treats those that served the way these students have done, I wish they could be shipped out of our country into some third word place where they have to be in fear for their life every day.

It is not just s saying that we sleep sound in our beds at night because of those that have served and those that serve today that sacrifice all to protect us and our country.

Jihadis gain ground in Syrian 'rebel' movement

Jihadis gain ground in Syrian 'rebel' movement

By Richard Engel, Chief Foreign Correspondent, NBC News

ANTAKYA, Turkey — Syrian opposition activists tell NBC News that Bashar Assad is getting away with having used chemical weapons to massacre hundreds of civilians, and that giving the regime a pass will only benefit al-Qaeda extremists.

“If there is no action, everyone will be desperate. We are already desperate. We are dying. Many will join al-Qaeda. Even the educated will join them, because no one else is helping,” a Syrian rebel said.

There is a battle underway within the Syrian revolt -- a war within the war -- between the generally moderate, US-backed Free Syrian Army and Islamic extremist groups.

The Free Syrian Army put its faith in Washington, which promised action, but so far hasn’t delivered. The moderates say they have lost hope and face. Islamists, on the other hand, always doubted Washington would act, and instead of attending meetings, they are putting bullets in their guns; and they are sending men.

Both want to topple Assad, but the end goals are very different: democracy on one side, and an Islamic state on the other.

The mind of the jihadi

Abu Abdul Rahman, a 22-year-old from Tunisia, sat in a safe house earlier this week in Antakya -- a southern Turkey town that’s fast becoming a smugglers transit route. He was waiting for a smuggler to take him across the border to fight in Syria.

“Almighty Allah has made Jihad a duty on us. When our Muslim brethren are oppressed, it is a duty to support them wherever they are, because Muslims are not separated by countries,” he said.

Abdul Rahman is one of thousands of al-Qaeda volunteers who are flocking to Syria to join what they see as a battle to defend Muslims no one is bothering to help.

“This was a dream for me, to wage jihad for Allah’s sake, because this is one of the greatest deeds in Islam, to lift aggression off my brothers, to bleed for Allah and no other,” he said.

At the safe house, Abdul Rahman checked his gear in the final hours before the smuggler arrived to collect him. He wasn’t sure what he’d need for the jihad. A college student until dropping out to join the fight, he'd never fought in a war before, never used a gun in anger. He looked somewhat confused as he dug through a plastic bag, going through the camouflage uniform, gloves and thick jacket he bought at an army surplus store. He might be in Syria for months, perhaps years, he said. He’d spent his entire young life in North Africa, and wasn’t sure how cold it gets in the winter.

“As long as there is aggression and until there is an Islamic state, I will stay,” he said.

Not like the movies

Abdul Rahman didn’t look like the cliché image of Islamic militants portrayed in the movies. He was clean shaven, polite and wore the kind of oversized sunglasses you usually see on women. He agreed to let us interview him because he believes he is doing nothing wrong.

After waiting through the afternoon at the safe house, the smuggler finally arrived.

The man helping Abdul Rahman cross the border said he has moved 300 foreign fighters to Syria in the last four months. And he has competition from other smugglers doing the same thing.

Abdul Rahman picked up his plastic bag of war clothing and got into a car. On the way to the Syrian border, he telephoned his mother in Tunisia. She didn’t want him to go and asked him to wait in Turkey, so she could come and say goodbye in person. He lied to her, saying he was already in Syria and it was too late. He hung up the phone and told us if he’d been truthful, his mother would have tried to force him to go home.

“I am happy. People say that by coming here I might die, there is shelling and so forth, but I thank Allah I am happy because I am satisfying my Allah almighty. I did not come for a worldly purpose. I did not come for money. I only came for Allah’s sake and to support my Muslim brothers,” he said.

Abdul Rahman made a few more calls before getting out of the car. He wanted to ensure his contacts from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, a radical group aligned with al-Qaeda, would be waiting for him when he crossed the grassy hill separating Turkey from Syria.

He got out of the car and disappeared over a rise, joining a revolution for purposes far beyond toppling Bashar Assad.

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

I wonder what would happen if we left all these Muslims alone to kill each other. And put our loyalty with Israel to help them defend their country on what they ask us for. Just feeling that when it comes to Islam countries I would want to know Israels opinion on it big time.

'This Is a Paper Tiger': Issa Slams Obama on Syria Plan

'This Is a Paper Tiger': Issa Slams Obama on Syria Plan

The Obama administration is claiming that the threat of United States military action in Syria is what caused Russia and Syria to make way for a diplomatic option.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, and Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), a member of that committee, joined Hannity last night . Issa criticized the administration for not having a plan.

“They’re grasping for straws. […] The time to have Putin on board was when [Obama] drew his red line in the sand, or certainly before he came to Congress.”

Chaffetz blamed President Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for not dealing with Syria in the past two years. “They were trying to convince everybody that everything’s fine. […] It’s not. It’s a violent world and there are people out there that hate Americans and want to kill Americans, and we have to deal with that.”

“This is a paper tiger,” Issa said.

He went on to slam the president for ordering drone strikes around the world without Congress’s authorization. Meanwhile, there are 6.5 million Syrian refugees and more than 100,000 Syrians who were killed by conventional weapons. Issa questioned the purpose of a “slap on the hand” military strike, saying, “so that [Assad would] go back and kill another 100,000 with conventional weapons?”

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

What a difference in how G>W.Bush did things and how the vile Obama does them. Obama thinks he can be a dictator and so why do anything the way it should be done or even not done.

I really believe the only reason Obama wanted to do this Syria thing was to get the pressure off him for Benghazi etc.

Obama’s evolving message on Syria (video compilation shows evolving message of Obama administration on Syria)

On Tuesday night after President Barack Obama’s address to the nation urging the public and Congress to back his proposal for intervention in Syria, Fox News ran a video of all the different statements from Obama and members of his administration.

The four-and-a-half minute video shows how the Obama administration evolved from the “red line” declaration back on August 20, 2012 to the president’s ambiguous address on Tuesday night. It also included other aspects of the president’s policy toward Syria including the timing of the strike, the use of diplomacy and the extent to which Syrian President Bashar al-Assad poses a threat to the United States and his Middle Eastern neighbors.

Anthony Weiner Ends His Campaign By Giving The Press The Finger

Anthony Weiner Ends His Campaign By Giving The Press The Finger

Business Insider

After giving his concession speech Tuesday, Anthony Weiner sprinted away from the media scrum surrounding him outside of Connolly's Irish Pub in Midtown Manhattan, jumping into a black SUV.

The reporters (including me) had been tailing him for the whole, undignified night. At one point, he sprinted through a McDonald's to avoid us.

Weiner handled the confrontation with his typical tact. That is, he gave the finger to Shimon Prokupecz, a reporter for WNBC, New York's local NBC affiliate.

At first, we thought nobody had gotten a photo of Weiner's gesture. Luckily, New York 1 did! Video producer Kate Rose tweeted it out! Here's the photographic evidence that Weiner saluted the press on his way out:

Syria says it "welcomes" Russian proposal to place chemical weapons under international control

Syria says it "welcomes" Russian proposal to place chemical weapons under international control

MOSCOW Syria on Monday quickly welcomed a call from Russia, its close ally, to place Syrian chemical arsenals under international control, then destroy them to avert a U.S. strike, but did not offer a time frame or any other specifics.

The statement by Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem appeared to mark the first official acknowledgement by Damascus that it possesses chemical weapons and reflected what appeared to be an attempt by Syrian President Bashar Assad to avoid the U.S. military attack.

But it remained to be seen whether the statement represented a genuine goodwill gesture by Syria or simply an attempt to buy time.

"Syria welcomes the Russian proposal out of concern for the lives of the Syrian people, the security of our country and because it believes in the wisdom of the Russian leadership that seeks to avert American aggression against our people," al-Moallem said during a visit to Moscow, where he held talks with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov.

However, al-Moallem, would not give any further details in his brief statement and didn't take any questions from reporters.

Moallem's statement came a few hours after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Assad could resolve the crisis surrounding the alleged use of chemical weapons by his forces by surrendering control of "every single bit" of his arsenal to the international community by the end of the week.

In Washington, U.S. officials said they would take a "hard look" at the proposal but doubted that Syria would carry out such a plan.

Wild thing's comment...............

Obama couldn’t care less about the people who were supposedly killed in Syria with chemical weapons. Note that he has not said ONE WORD about the massive numbers of Christians killed by the rebels.

Illinois Charges 13 Democrats Including Jeremiah Wright’s Daughter, Niece of Dem Rep. Danny Davis With Embezzling $13 Million From Taxpayer-Funded Grants

Illinois Charges 13 Democrats Including Jeremiah Wright’s Daughter, Niece of Dem Rep. Danny Davis With Embezzling $13 Million From Taxpayer-Funded Grants

The U.S. attorney’s office in Springfield has been busy the past few years investigating a variety of fraud schemes involving state grants. Thirteen people have been charged so far, six who have pleaded guilty.

Two of them have ties to President Barack Obama. One is the daughter of his controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Another was chief of staff to Obama’s longtime friend Eric E. Whitaker when Whitaker was Illinois’ public health chief.

In all, prosecutors are alleging a total of $16 million in fraud involving state health or commerce department grants and contracts.

Here’s a brief look at each of the criminal cases that have been filed, which prosecutors built with help from the Chicago offices of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Internal Revenue Service, as well as from the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office’s inspector general:

Defendants: Former County Club Hills police Chief Regina R. Evans and her husband, Ronald W. Evans Jr., former inspector general for the south suburb

Filed: April 4, 2012

Charges: Conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering

Details: The Evanses admitted spending about half of a $1.25 million commerce department grant on gifts for family members and friends and to pay off personal debt, including a mortgage on the New Regal Theater on Chicago’s South Side. State Sen. Donne Trotter (D-Chicago) helped the couple’s not-for-profit organization, We Are Our Brother’s Keeper, get that state grant, which was to be used for a job-training program that was part of theater restoration efforts. Trotter has not been charged.

Status: Regina Evans to be sentenced Oct. 15; Ronald Evans Dec. 2.

Defendant: Quinshaunta R. Golden, former Illinois Department of Public Health chief of staff

Filed: Aug. 7, 2013

Charges: Bribery/theft, mail fraud and obstruction of justice

Details: Golden, a niece of U.S. Rep. Danny K. Davis (D-Ill.), is accused of pocketing about $433,000 in kickbacks on health department contracts and grants that she oversaw. Her boss at the time, Obama’s friend Whitaker, has said he is cooperating with the investigation and “had no firsthand knowledge of the activities outlined in [Golden’s] indictment.”

Status: Trial set for Oct.

Obama To Violate Federal Law By Slashing Military Pay Raise, Will Negatively Impact Combat Troops

Obama To Violate Federal Law By Slashing Military Pay Raise, Will Negatively Impact Combat Troops

Obama has told Congress he will cap next year’s pay raise for U.S. military personnel at 1 percent instead of boosting pay by 1.8 percent as called for by a federal law.

The president’s move will negatively impact American combat troops scheduled to remain in Afghanistan through 2014.

The federal law says military pay raises must be based on the Employment Cost Index compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which ties military raises to private sector pay growth. Under that formula, military personnel should be getting a 1.8 percent pay raise beginning in January 2014, CNS News reported.

But the law also states that the president can inform Congress of an alternative pay adjustment “if because of national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare, the president considers the pay adjustment which would otherwise be required by this section in any year to be inappropriate.”

Obama wrote to congressional leaders: "I am strongly committed to supporting our uniformed service members, who have made such great contributions to our nation over the past decade of war. As our country continues to recover from serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare, however, we must maintain efforts to keep our nation on a sustainable fiscal course."

Retired Air Force Col. Mike Hayden, director of government relations for the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), calculated that the reduced pay raise could cost an officer with 10 years of service about $52 a month next year, or $8,000 over the remaining years of his or her career. It would also cost a service member $20,000 in retirement pay.

Hayden wrote on the MOAA website: "Over the past 12 years, Congress worked hard to fix the 13.5 percent pay gap (and resulting retention problems) caused by repeatedly capping military raises below private-sector pay growth in the 1980s and 1990s.

"History has shown that once Congress starts accepting proposals to cap military pay below private-sector growth, pay caps continue until they have weakened retention and readiness."

WH Chief Of Staff Admits We Have No Military Allies For A Syria Strike

WH Chief Of Staff Admits We Have No Military Allies For A Syria Strike

The United States has no military allies in its plan to launch missile attacks against Syria as punishment for the country’s use of chemical weapons, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough said Sunday.

McDonough conceded the fact on CNN’s “State of the Union” after persistent questioning from host Candy Crowley, who asked him whether President Barack Obama has secured international military support for the strike — as opposed to moral support.

“Not at this point,” he said. “But it is specific support for holding him [Syrian President Bashar Assad] to account, and it is a recognition that it happened. We feel very good about the support we have, and we’ll continue to build more.”

McDonough said Obama, Congress and the rest of the world no longer doubt the fact Assad carried out such horrific crimes against his people.

“Nobody now debates the intelligence, which makes clear … that in August, the Assad regime used chemical weapons against its own people,” he said. “The entire world believes that. Congress has the opportunity this week to answer a simple question: Should there be consequences for him for having used that material.”

Juan Williams should not be a 'political analyst' on any channel!

Once again, trying to sound brilliant, he ends up sounding like a complete fool.

He tells Karl Rove and Brit Hume that their obsession about last year's terrorist attack in Benghazi was "all in your head, baby"...There was "not one shred of evidence that the White House knew about this beforehand, they covered up anything."

Hume asks Williams, what are you talking about? Meaning, nobody is charging that the WH knew that Benghazi was going to go down prior to the attack. The scandal was the cover-up that happened following the attack and the administration continually blaming the video when they knew it wasn't true.

Amazing and shocking.

Man Pays Property Taxes, $7143, In $1 Bills

An Easton, Pa. man, frustrated over property taxes, visited the local tax office and paid in dollar bills – all $7,143 of it.

One bill at a time.

Local news reports identify the man as Robert Fernandes of Forks Township.

The scene, posted on YouTube, has generated more than 15,600 views — in less than a week.

In the video, Fernandes carries a duffel bag filled with bundled bills, which he proceeds to stack on a counter. He brings doughnuts, offered to “anyone who is inconvenienced here today.”

The tax collector tells Fernandes his protest should probably be directed elsewhere, toward the school board, maybe, which is in charge of setting property tax rates.

“I’m not doing this to make anybody’s life more difficult,” Fernandes tells the collector. “Unfortunately, I wish the same could be said, you know, for me and many others whose lives are more difficult for having to pay property taxes.”

Military Revolts Against Obama Attack On Syria

Military Revolts Against Obama Attack On Syria

Investors Business Daily

Mideast: The administration's planned strike on Syria is increasingly opposed by many in a U.S. military coping with the scars of two long wars, a rapidly shrinking budget and soldiers saying we're "tired, stretched thin and broke."

That sentiment was expressed by an active-duty soldier with a rank of Sergeant First Class in an email to Rep. Justin Amash. The Michigan Republican has been receiving, compiling and tweeting emails from current and former service members now being asked to commit to an ill-defined mission with an unclear goal in support of rebels mostly linked to al-Qaida and other unfriendly interests.

"The message I consistently hear: Please vote no on military action against Syria," Amash tweeted. Most objections relate to the lack of a clear objective in striking Syria and the muddled line between anti-government rebels and al-Qaida-affiliated terrorists.

The backlash against boots on the ground or even wings in the air has exploded on social media. Many in the military are posting photos of themselves holding signs stating they'd refuse to fight on the same side as al-Qaida in Syria. The photos went viral, with one post alone generating more than 16,000 shares on Facebook.

"Our involvement in Syria is so dangerous on so many levels, and the 21st century American vet is more keen to this than anybody," Business Insider's Paul Szoldra quotes former Cpl. Jack Mandaville, a Marine Corps infantry veteran with three deployments to Iraq. "It boggles my mind that we are being ignored."

Kerry: Obama Can Bomb Syria With or Without Congressional Go Ahead

Even as he lobbies former Congressional colleagues to vote "yes" on military action against Syria, Secretary of State John Kerry intimates the president can act even if Congress says "no."

Speaking to the Huffington Post on September 5, Kerry said:

Constitutionally, every president, Republican and Democrat alike, has always reserved to the presidency, to the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, the right to make a decision with respect to American security. Bill Clinton went to Kosovo over the objections of many people and saved lives and managed to make peace because he did something that was critical at that time. Many presidents have done that... A lot of presidents have made a decision that they have to protect the nation.

Similarly, Kerry said "Obama reserves the right in the presidency to respond as appropriate to protect the security of our nation."

Obama’s Brother, Malik Obama, Wanted On Egypt’s Terror Watch List For Muslim Brotherhood Leaders

Barack and Malik Obama in the Oval Office

Obama’s Brother, Malik Obama, Wanted On Egypt’s Terror Watch List For Muslim Brotherhood Leaders

Recently the Egyptian media reported proof that Obama is a Muslim Brotherhood member, and also posted an image of Obama as Satan.

Walid Shoebat is now reporting that Obama’s Brother (Malik Obama) is headed for Egypt’s Terror Watch List and reminds the readers of all the evidence mounting for his involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Recall that the same IRS that stalled on processing paperwork for conservative groups, suddenly gave preferential treatment to Malik Obama’s charity, which is linked to a genocidal regime.

Several prominent Egyptian media sources are reporting that Malik Obama, half-brother to President Barack Obama is quickly becoming a person of interest in that country relative to his role with the Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO) – based in bordering Sudan – and the larger Muslim Brotherhood umbrella group. Complaints have been filed with Egypt’s Prosecutor General that call for Malik to be put on Egypt’s terror watch list and brought in for questioning about his role in financing terrorism.

The following is a direct translation from an article from Youm7:

[...] Complaint No. 1761 for the year 2013 reported to the Attorney General asked the Egyptian High Court to consider the suspicious activity of a group called the Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO), which is owned and managed by Malik Obama. This group is now being investigated by international bodies and the attached evidence proves beyond a reasonable doubt that a close link exists between Malik Obama and some of the most notorious characters already wanted for their involvement in terrorism, as is consistent with the pictures and reports attached…

The complaint also asks the court to bring in Malik Obama – a resident of the United States – to be questioned in regards to the terrorist groups in Egypt, whether by inciting or participating with or in any form of support punishable by law. It seeks permission to declare Obama a defendant in his right outside Egypt diplomatically, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In the case of non-appearance and compliance for the investigation, the complainant requests monitoring [Mr. Obama] by including his name on all Egyptian airports and ports, and take the necessary legal steps.”

Syrian Christian Woman Destroys Sen. John McCain at Town Hall Meeting: “Enough is Enough! We Do Not want Another Engagement in the Middle East!”

At a Town Hall meeting a Syrian woman who lost a member of her family at the hands of the U.S. backed Syrian rebels that would benefit from a U.S. strike against Syria, one that AZ Senator John McCain supports, rips into him about spilling more Syria blood.

Voters Explode on John McCain at Phoenix Town Hall: ‘We Didn’t Send You to Make War for Us’

You can see the photos at this link.............

A number of Sen. John McCain’s constituents are not happy with the Arizona Republican’s support of President Barack Obama’s plan to take military action against Syria. Voters made that much perfectly clear when they confronted him at a town hall in Phoenix on Thursday.

“We didn’t send you to make war for us. We sent you to stop the war,” one man said to applause,

Another man told McCain Congress is ignoring its duty to represent voters.

“This is what I think of Congress,” he said, holding a bag of marshmallows in his hand. “They are a bunch of marshmallows. That’s what they are. That’s what they’ve become. Why are you not listening to the people and staying out of Syria? It’s not our fight.”

Obama Administration To Spend $12 Million On Ads Touting Obamacare In A Dozen Republican-Led States

The Obama administration is readying a multimillion-dollar onslaught of ads in a dozen red states to encourage Americans to sign up for Obamacare insurance exchanges, media-tracking sources tell POLITICO.

CMS has reserved at least $12 million in airtime starting Sept. 30 in Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Missouri, Ohio, Indiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Louisiana and Michigan.

All but one, Missouri, are led by Republican governors — including many who have been hostile to the health law — and even in Missouri, a Republican-dominated legislature has set an anti-Obamacare agenda.

The number of states and the total cost of the ad campaign are both expected to grow with the approach of the enrollment period that begins on Oct. 1. The administration awarded a $41 million PR contract to the firm Weber Shandwick earlier this year to promote participation.

If this was his own money he would not be spending it, Obama is a selfish, self centered egomaniac and only cares about himself. Unfortunately we have to pay for all his propaganda.

International Opposition Grows Toward Obama and His Syria Plans

Barack Obama faces growing opposition to airstrikes as he arrives for G20

Barack Obama is facing growing international opposition to military intervention in Syria as China, the European Union and the Pope all warned against attacks on the Assad regime.

Obama arrived St Petersburg for a tense G20 summit amid signs that Russia's opposition to US airstrikes was gaining significant international support.

Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, welcomed Mr Obama to his home town in an encounter that laid bare the increasingly difficult relationship between the two men.

After exchanging a stiff handshake and stern looks, Mr Obama and Mr Putin offered fixed smiles for the cameras before entering the Konstantinovsky Palace.

In the summit room, diplomats said the two men were seated well aware from each other and did not speak to one another directly during opening talks about the world economy.

The awkward initial encounter came after some other leaders arriving in St Petersburg pointedly sided with Russia in its opposition to US-led military action.

Intervention would damage the global economy by pushing up oil prices, China said. Syria is not a significant oil exporter, but the prospect of conflict in the Middle East often pushes up oil prices.

"Military action would have a negative impact on the global economy, especially on the oil price - it will cause a hike in the oil price," said Zhu Guangyao, the Chinese Vice Finance Minister.

Brazil, India and South Africa also worry that intervention would do economic harm, according to Mr Putin's officials.

Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Russian president, said the leaders of the large emerging economies spoke before the St Petersburg summit and agreed that Syrian intervention would have an "extremely negative effect" on the global economy."

While the British and French governments have both backed the principle of military intervention to punish the Assad regime's alleged use of chemical weapons, the European Union as a whole is opposed, European officials said.

Herman van Rompuy, the EU president, arrived at the summit with a warning against military action.

Rush Limbaugh - Obama Walking Back From ‘Red Line’ Comments May Be ‘Psychopathic’

Obama Walking Back From ‘Red Line’ Comments May Be ‘Psychopathic’

RUSH: Grab sound bite 20 from today. Here’s Obama from yesterday. And, by the way, not just people like Rumsfeld or Cheney, but I’m telling you everybody around the world that takes this stuff seriously, who keeps up with it. It was last summer, Obama drew the red line. He defined what crossing the red line would mean. Yesterday: No, I didn’t. I didn’t do that. I didn’t do that at all.

OBAMA: I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line. The world set a red line when governments representing 98% of the world’s population said –

RUSH: Okay, that’s enough. Move on to sound bite 21. He was asked about it at a Q&A press conference, “What do you mean you didn’t set the red line? Everybody heard you set the red line.”

OBAMA: My credibility is not on the line. The international community’s credibility is on the line, and America and Congress’ credibility is on the line.

RUSH: But not his. Stop the tape. Folks, this is some “pathic.” I don’t know what, psychopathic, it’s some pathic. (imitating Obama) “I didn’t set that red line. I didn’t draw the red line. My credibility isn’t on the line.” Congress and America, the country, but not him? He drew the red line, then he said he didn’t, then he said his credibility isn’t on the line. It’s Congress’ fault ’cause they’re the ones that passed a resolution decades ago against the use of chemical weapons. So, yeah, it’s the Republicans’ fault. And you’ve got people watching this, and I’m telling you, they’re questioning the stability of the people running this country and they’re scared to death.

Pentagon Report: It Would Take 75,000 Ground Troops To Secure Syria’s Chemical Weapons Arsenal

Pentagon Report: It Would Take 75,000 Ground Troops To Secure Syria’s Chemical Weapons Arsenal

Securing Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles and the facilities that produced them would likely require the U.S. to send more than 75,000 ground troops into the Middle Eastern country, MailOnline learned Wednesday.

That estimate comes from a secret memorandum the U.S. Department of Defense prepared for President Obama in early 2012.

U.S. Central Command arrived at the figure of 75,000 ground troops as part of a written series of military options for dealing with Bashar al-Assad more than 18 months ago, long before the U.S. confirmed internally that the Syrian dictator was using the weapons against rebel factions within his borders.

‘The report exists, and it was prepared at the request of the National Security Advisor’s staff,’ a Department of Defense official with knowledge of the inquiry told MailOnline Wednesday on condition of anonymity.

‘DoD spent lots of time and resources on it. Everyone understood that this wasn’t a pointless exercise, and that eventually we would be tasked with going and getting the VX and sarin, so there was lots of due diligence.’

The logistical difficulties of bringing Syria’s chemical warfare infrastructure under control stands in stark contrast with the text of a resolution passed Wednesday by a powerful Senate committee, and with assurances Secretary of State John Kerry has given committees in both houses of Congress.

Rep. Joe Wilson To Kerry: Is Obama Attacking Syria to Distract From Benghazi, IRS?

REP. JOE WILSON (R-SC): With the president’s redline, why was there no call for military response in April? Was it delayed to divert attention today from the Benghazi, IRS, NSA scandals, the failure of Obamacare enforcement, the tragedy of the White House-drafted sequestration or the upcoming debt limit vote? Again, why was there no call for a military response four months ago when the president’s red line was crossed?

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

IMO that is what is bugging me the most. That this entire thing is to be a distraction. There is a deadline about Obamacare if we can stop it and all this yakking about Syria is taking away from that.

Switzerland keeps crown as most competitive economy

Switzerland keeps crown as most competitive economy

Switzerland has kept its title as the world's most competitive economy for the fifth year running, though it needs to resist any temptation to protect its core banking sector if it wants to stay top, the World Economic Forum said on Wednesday.

The Geneva-based body, most famous for gathering politicians and billionaires at an annual shindig in the Alpine resort of Davos, said the same economies made the top 10 as last year, but in a different order.

Singapore and Finland remained in second and third place respectively in the Forum's annual Global Competitiveness Report.

Germany, the United States, Hong Kong and Japan all edged up while Sweden, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom all slipped by two or three notches.

The United States' flair for innovation helped it reverse a four-year downward trend, although serious concerns remained over its macroeconomic stability, the Forum said, ranking it 117 out of 148 countries in that category.

The Forum bases its assessment on a dozen drivers of competitiveness, including institutions, infrastructure, health and education, market size and the macroeconomic environment.

The report also factors in a survey among business leaders, assessing the government's efficiency and transparency.

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

Good for Switzerland. One thing for sure they do not have a POS president like Obama that hates his country. Of all the countries I am glad if is not the USA that the congratulations go to Switzerland.

In Switzerland they actually have public education and teach hard math and science. US public "education" is now nothing but dumbed-down, PC drivel and indoctrination.

New Mexico Man Labels Outhouse “Obama’s Presidential Library”

New Mexico Man Labels Outhouse “Obama’s Presidential Library"

TUCUMCARI, N.M. — Just a stone’s-throw away from historic Route 66 in Tucumcari sits a sign that everyone’s talking about.

The sign sits atop an outhouse and says “Obama’s Presidential Library.”

Some in town say it’s in bad taste, while others support it. Either way, everyone knows about it. One man said people have been treating it like a tourist destination, taking pictures all the time.

As for the man who put it up, he refused to give Target 7 his name or reveal what prompted him to construct the controversial commode, but he said he has no intention of taking it down.

“It’s like watching TV. If you don’t like what the hell you’re watching, turn the channel,” said the man who put up the sign. “I’m not even certain he even deserves that level of respect, but that’s my opinion.”

Target 7 contacted city manager Doug Powers to see if the city was doing anything about the sign. He said he hasn’t seen it yet, but will go to the site soon to see if it’s breaking any city codes. However, when it comes to the message, Powers thinks the city doesn’t have control over what people say.

John McCain Plays Poker on his iPhone During War Hearing

As the hearing continues, our ace photographer Melina Mara reports she spotted Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) “passing the time by playing poker on his iPhone during the hearing.”

Senator John McCain plays poker on his IPhone during a U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing where Secretary of State JohnKerry, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey testify concerning the use of force in Syria, on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, Tuesday, September 3, 2013.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey couldn’t answer what exactly the U.S. was seeking in Syria Tuesday during questioning from Sen. Bob Corker (R., Tenn.) about a resolution authorizing military action there:

DEMPSEY: The answer to whether I support additional support for the moderate opposition is yes.

CORKER: And this authorization will support those activities in addition to responding to the weapons of mass destruction.

DEMPSEY: I don’t know how the resolution will evolve, but I support –

CORKER: What you’re seeking. What is it you’re seeking?

DEMPSEY: I can’t answer that, what we’re seeking.

ICE Union Head Wants Congressional Investigations Into Obama’s ICE Policies Says Obama Acts “Like A Dictator”

ICE Union Head Wants Congressional Investigations Into Obama’s ICE Policies—Obama Acts “Like A Dictator”, “Overstepping His Authority”

Representative Louie Gohmert substituted for Hannity on last Friday’s radio show (Aug. 30, 2013). In the second hour, there was a discussion with ICE Council President Chris Crane on Obama’s inability to do the job that is constitutionally authorized to the Executive branch—securing the sovereignty of this nation by securing U.S. borders.

Chris Crane has been troubled by Obama’s actions that resemble a dictator—ignoring constitutional law while making his own laws through policy. Chris Crane is not alone—many Americans share the same concerns and wonder what it will take for Congress to act.

In an appearance on Sean Hannity’s radio show Friday, hosted by fill-in host Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert, the head of the union representing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents called on Congress to investigate the administration’s immigration policies.

“With regard to our government in general, I mean right now, that’s our problem with our immigration system,” National ICE Council President Chris Crane said. “[The problem] is not our immigration system, it’s our government, and it’s the ability of a president of the United States to ignore the laws enacted by Congress.”

“And it doesn’t matter what type of legislation we pass, until we address that problem, we will never have an immigration system that works,” he added. “As long as one person can act like a dictator and ignore the law and make his own laws through policy, we will never have a system that works.”

Crane and his union have been vocal opponents of the Obama administration’s immigration policies — notably its Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — and the Senate-passed immigration bill.

“There is no more of a clear cut case in our country of the president overstepping his authority, ignoring the law, ignoring the Constitution, than the president’s ordering of ICE agents not to enforce U.S. immigration law,” he said. “Yet we have no investigations from Congress into this whatsoever.” [...]

Huge thank you and I hope and pray there will be an investigation and Obama will be punished for everything he has done.

While In Russia, Disgusting Obama Will Meet With LGBT Activists Instead of Meeting With Putin

Another Putin Snub: While In Russia, Obama Will Meet With LGBT Activists Instead of Meeting With Putin

Last month, Obama infuriated Vladimir Putin by referring to him as a “bored kid in the back of the classroom.” and cancelled his bilateral meeting with Putin. To add to the tension, instead of meeting with Putin, on Thursday President Obama will meet with the LGBT activists in St. Petersburg while visiting the area during the G20 summit.

Four Russian non-governmental organizations told BuzzFeed Monday they had been invited to the meeting, scheduled for this Thursday at St. Petersburg’s Crowne Plaza Hotel. The groups include veteran human rights activists Lev Ponomarev and Lyudmila Alexeyeva, legal aid NGO director Pavel Chikov, and Coming Out, a St. Petersburg-based LGBT organization. Another local LGBT group, the LGBT Network, is believed to be attending, though director Igor Kochetkov declined to comment to BuzzFeed, saying that he had been “asked not to say anything.”

Election monitoring group Golos is also believed to have been invited, though BuzzFeed could not reach its director or deputy director to confirm. Russia’s justice ministry forced Golos, which used to receive funding from USAID, to disband this summer under a law on “foreign agents” that many believed was created specifically to target the group.

Oregon Bakery That Refused To Make Cake For Same-Sex Wedding Closes Up Shop

Oregon Bakery That Refused To Make Cake For Same-Sex Wedding Closes Up Shop

In the month of January- Couple walks into Sweet Cakes by Melissa wanting a cake for a same-sex wedding. Owner says, sorry we don't do cakes for gay marriages citing religious belief. The couple gets their cake somewhere else but that wasn't enough, they file a complaint with the Oregon state Bureau of Labor and Industries.

The owners say they were inundated for months with hateful messages, phone calls and emails for their refusal

They announced this weekend that they were closing the shop for good.

Goodbye 1st Amendment Freedom of Religion, it was nice knowing you.

A Gresham bakery that sparked controversy earlier this year by refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex couple closed up shop this weekend.

Though Sweet Cakes by Melissa is closing its store, the business will continue as an at-home bakery for custom cakes, according to the company's Facebook page.

Willamette Week reported earlier today that Saturday was the shop's last day before the transition to an at-home business. The phone number will be changing, but cakes can still be ordered at, according to the Facebook page.

Rachel Cryer and Laurel Bowman of Portland filed a complaint with the state earlier this year after Sweet Cakes by Melissa refused to bake a wedding cake for the couple, citing religious reasons.

Aaron Klein, co-owner of the bakery, previously told The Oregonian that he and wife Melissa sell to anyone regardless of sexual orientation but will not bake wedding cakes for a same-sex wedding because it goes against their Christian beliefs.

The complaint alleges that the bakery has violated Oregon laws that prohibit discrimination against gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people in employment and public accommodations.

Allen West “After watching the Chris Wallace interview: John Kerry is seriously delusional.”

Watched the Chris Wallace interview with Secretary of State John Kerry today and I must admit, Kerry is seriously delusional. He actually believes America demonstrates strength by showing Assad, Iran, and our other enemies the “power of our democratic process.” Obama came out Saturday in the Rose Garden and voted ‘present’ then departed to do what he does best, play golf. And this conglomeration of ineptness called the Obama Presidential Cabinet believes they have actually shown resolve? We have lost all credibility and the weak attempts by Obama, and Kerry today to now set Congress up for blame just proves the lack of conviction emanating from the White House. US Navy warships are now cutting donuts in the Mediterranean Sea and I apologize for subjecting our men and women in uniform to this abomination. Obama has made a joke of American exceptionalism and power. Once again I must repeat, elections do have consequences.

Obama’s War Request To Congress On Syria Is “Blank Check”, Gives Him Power To Commit Whatever Assets He Chooses

Obama’s War Request To Congress On Syria Is “Blank Check”, Gives Him Power To Commit Whatever Assets He Chooses

Roll Call

It took less than 24 hours for lawmakers to realize that the draft authorization for the use of military force sent to Congress by President Barack Obama would open the door to a prolonged war with Syria.

That’s not something that Obama or top administration have been publicly pushing for — all indications are that the plan is for targeted action to deter the regime of Bashar al-Assad from further use of chemical weapons. But, as became clear on Capitol Hill on Sunday, Congress has no appetite for the broader mandate that the White House technically proposed.

As noted Saturday night, the draft would authorize Obama to use U.S. military assets “as he determines to be necessary and appropriate” to prevent Assad from using or proliferating chemical weapons and other types of weapons of mass destruction.

Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., reportedly said after a Sunday afternoon classified briefing in the Capitol that administration officials had conceded the resolution language would be modified.

“I think the biggest question I heard is that the president’s request is open-ended,” Roberts said, according to The Washington Post.

9-11-2013 Two Million Bikers to Washington DC ~ To Honor the Fallen of 911

9-11-2013 Two Million Bikers to Washington DC ~ To Honor the Fallen of 911

The September 11, 2001 attacks resulted in 2,996 immediate (attack time) deaths: 2,977 victims and the 19 hijackers. A total of 372 foreign nationals (excluding the 19 perpetrators) perished in the attacks, representing just over 12% of the total. The immediate deaths include 246 victims on the four planes (from which there were no survivors), 2,606 in New York City in the World Trade Center and on the ground, and 125 at the Pentagon. About 292 people were killed at street level by burning debris and falling bodies of those who had jumped or fallen from the World Trade Center's windows. All the deaths in the attacks were civilians except for 55 military personnel killed at the Pentagon. Some immediate victims were not added to the list until years later.

The news media has traditionally described the attacks as the deadliest attack on U.S. soil since Pearl Harbor, but in fact there were several hundred more casualties on September 11, 2001 than there were in the December 1941 Pearl Harbor ambush. Not since the last battles of the Civil War had there been a domestic assault with greater loss of life.

More than 90 countries lost citizens in the attacks on the World Trade Center. The foreign countries with the highest losses are the United Kingdom (including the British overseas territory of Bermuda) with 67, the Dominican Republic with 47, and India with 41.
