WH Rules: Violation in Terrorist Swap Punishable By Jail, Suspension, Removal of Office

Judicial Watch

The law violated by the Obama administration when it secretly exchanged five Guantanamo terrorists for an Army solider captured by the Taliban after deserting his post is punishable by jail, suspension and removal of office, according to written White House rules.

The nonpartisan investigative arm of Congress, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), confirmed this week that the president broke a “clear and unambiguous” law when he swapped the high-level terrorists for Bowe Bergdahl, an Army sergeant who went AWOL in Afghanistan in 2009. According to rules issued by the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) the violation is serious and can carry severe consequences. They include fines, imprisonment, administrative discipline, suspension from duty without pay or removal from office, the rules specifically state.

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Andrea Tantaros

Moonbattery

Until recently I thought they put Andrea Tantaros in front of the cameras mainly because she is young and pretty. Credit where it is due: she turns out to be one of the extremely few people in public life who know anything whatsoever about the history of Islam and have the guts to share that knowledge with others:

Naturally the ethnic thought police are righteously demanding that she retract the truth and smooth it over with politically correct lies.

Islam has been an exceedingly vicious cult characterized by torture, rape, enslavement, and gruesome murder since the days of Mohammad, whom Muslims are required to emulate. It has been at war with Western Civilization since the 7th century, when much of the Middle East was Christian. These facts are considered thought crimes by our pro-Islam ruling class, making Tantaros’s remarks an act of rebellion the Founding Fathers would have admired.

Intelligence Chairman on ISIS: ‘They Are One Plane Ticket Away’

Family Security Matters

Rep. Mike Rogers (R.-Mich.), the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” today that the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) is “one plane ticket away from U.S. shores” and that terrorists carrying European passports could get into the United States without a visa.

“Oh, it’s a very real threat,” Rogers said of the threat to the United States from ISIS.

“You saw the very barbaric behavior,” he said. “And one of the problems is it’s gone unabated for nearly two years, and that draws people from Britain to across Europe, even the United States, to go and join the fight. They see that as a winning ideology, a winning strategy, and they want to be a part of it. And that’s what makes it so dangerous. They are one plane ticket away from U.S. shores. And that’s why we’re so concerned about it.”

Host Chris Jansing asked: “But we’ve heard the Pentagon say that, right now, they are not in a position to launch an attack on the United States. Is there any credible intelligence that ISIS is either planning that or has the capability to do it?

“Well, I’m going to dispute that,” said Rogers. “So we know that, and the number 2,000 of Westerners with Western passports is low. Intelligence has a very different number and it’s much higher than that. And the very fight between Al Qaeda [and ISIS} that allowed ISIS to separate from Al Qaeda in Syria was the fact that they wanted to conduct Western-style operations.

“Zawahiri, the leader of Al Qaeda, said, ‘No, we want you to focus on Syria,'” said Rogers. “That’s what started the fight. This notion that they were too barbaric is almost laughable given that Al Qaeda flew airplanes and slaughtered 3,000 people on 9/11. It was all about direction, control of those individuals.

“What they [ISIS] were saying at the time was we have a lot of people who have passports that could go to Europe and then to the United States without a visa waiver, meaning they wouldn’t have to apply for a visa,” said Rogers. “The only way we would know is by looking at who was riding on those airplanes, and that might not be enough.

The deception of the House Benghazi report

CFP

In the event you missed it, the Democratic-Socialist Left has been absolutely giddy about the statement released on July 31, 2014, by the Republican majority House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) pertaining to their investigation into Benghazi. The type of giddy that Chris Matthews described in 2008 when he said “I felt this thrill going up my leg” as he listened to then-Presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama speak.

The giddiness, of course, relates to the reported finding that there was no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration in the 2012 attack in Benghazi. A closer examination of the facts, however, suggests a potentially embarrassing case “premature elation,” at least in the case of Benghazi.

Although you would think the Socialist Left would be troubled by premature elation as it fails to satisfy the factual needs of an inquiring public, few appear to be. Leading the list of those afflicted by premature elation appear to include not just the entire staff of Media Matters, but specifically writers John Kerr and Jeremy Holden, as they continue to use the word hoax[ia] in reference to the death of four Americans.  The use of the word “hoax,” particularly in consideration of the horrific deaths of four Americans, is an affront to journalism and fact-based reporting. Perhaps it is used to compensate for the embarrassment of premature elation. Perhaps… but perhaps an unsatisfied public might find some actual relief in the following factual disclosures, and why their celebratory giddiness is not only unbecoming, but completely misplaced.

Mass To Be Held For Slain US Journalist Foley [No WH Officials To Attend?]

Free Republic

Mass To Be Held For Slain US Journalist Foley AAugust 24 2014 ROCHESTER, N.H. James Foley, the U.S. journalist slain by Islamic State militants after being held in captivity for nearly two years, will be remembered Sunday at a Mass of Remembrance in his hometown.

Foley was kidnapped on Thanksgiving Day 2012 while covering the Syrian uprising. The Islamic State posted a Web video Tuesday showing his murder and said it was in retaliation for U.S. airstrikes in northern Iraq.

President Barack Obama has called Foley a hero for telling the stories of oppressed people in war-torn regions like Syria and Libya. The U.S. launched a raid this summer to rescue Foley and other hostages, but special forces were unable to locate the captives.

The Mass at 2 p.m. Sunday is in Foley’s hometown church, Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in Rochester.

Pentagon Warns Of Islamic State Obama Once Downplayed

Investors.com

Islamic State: A campaigning president assured us that al-Qaida was in retreat and its Syrian spin-off was just “JV.” Now the Pentagon admits that this al-Qaida spawn is worse. The U.S. never had to allow this situation.

To get an idea of why this White House has placed America in what Senate Armed Services Committee ranking Republican James Inhofe of Oklahoma calls “the most dangerous position we’ve ever been in as a nation,” we turn to one of Obama’s biggest mainstream media devotees.

Government Accountability Office Confirms Obama Broke the Law to Free Taliban Terrorists

Moonbattery

Personally, I believe a prosecutor could make an excellent case that Obama committed treason when he swapped deserter and probable defector Bowe Bergdahl for five top Taliban terrorists. Reasonable people might disagree. But we can all agree that he broke the law:

President Obama violated a “clear and unambiguous” law when he released five Guantanamo Bay detainees in exchange for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, the Government Accountability Office reported Thursday.

“[The Department of Defense] violated section 8111 because it did not notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of the transfer,” the GAO report said. “In addition, because DOD used appropriated funds to carry out the transfer when no money was available for that purpose, DOD violated the Antideficiency Act. The Antideficiency Act prohibits federal agencies from incurring obligations exceeding an amount available in an appropriation.”

Even liberals like Dianne Feinstein, Jeffrey Toobin, and Jonathan Turley concur.

Unfortunately, this is no longer a nation governed by laws. Instead it is governed by Hope & Change made flesh in the form of Obama, leaving him free to impose whatever dictates might advance his inscrutable objectives.
