America—You Be the Judge

President Obama’s adamant refusal to link the barbaric atrocities committed by the Islamic State and affiliated al-Qaeda militias to Islam is an insult to the intelligence of all thinking Americans. His insistence that these atrocities are the result of “violent extremism,” not associated with Islam, lessens his already diminished credibility. The Quran and Islamic Law (Shariah) prove him wrong since there are 109 verses in the Quran that can be considered to sanction violence. Furthermore, chapter 2, verse 106 (on abrogation) makes it clear that the later violent verses take precedence over the earlier, less violent ones.

In February, President Obama hosted a White House Summit on countering “violent extremism.” As it turned out, it was essentially a public relations media event that had nothing substantive to offer in terms of countering the Islamic State’s barbaric acts of terrorism. Instead, it was more of a leftist, progressive agenda sympathetic to “Islamic sensibilities and grievances.” It cited lack of education and job opportunities as part of the root cause that enables IS to attract young Muslims. Mind boggling, particularly when Christians, women, and children are having their heads chopped off and are being buried alive.

If it were to have been a serious summit, you would have expected the Director of the FBI and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to be full participants. However, they were not invited. Instead, the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and its front organizations were full participants, including the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), both unindicted co-conspirators for funding terrorism from the 2008 Dallas, Texas Holy Land Foundation Trial. Another MB front organization, the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), was also represented.

Cities: The problem with socialism, Margaret Thatcher once noted, is you eventually run out of other people’s money. In progressive Chicago, that’s hit home as Moody’s has cut its credit rating to two grades above “junk.”

Chicago’s finances are staggering under the weight of an unfunded pension liability that Moody’s Investors Service has estimated at $32 billion, eight times the city’s operating revenue.

Chicago has a $300 million structural deficit. And Illinois law requires the city to up its 2016 contributions to its police and fire pension funds by $550 million.

Bibi’s Truth: Forty years of Liberal Betrayal

American Thinker

I don’t know what Israel’s Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu is going to say to the U.S. Congress on Tuesday. Obama and the sleaze media will try to make this story all about Bibi and phony “violations of protocol.”

Bibi will try to tell the truth.

Who will you listen to? This is a once-in-a-lifetime event. This time it really matters. Life or death, war or peace, lies or the truth.

This time it’s literally life or death -– not just for one person, but for entire nations and ethnic peoples.If you doubt that, just see what ISIS is doing to the indigenous Christians who lived in the Middle East centuries before Islam.

Here’s what I hope he will say.

White House: Obama Is “Very Interested” In Raising Taxes Via Executive Orders…

Barack Obama

Weasel Zippers

Shocker.

Via Townhall:

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unitlateral executive action.

“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action.

“Now I don’t want to leave you with the impression that there is some imminent announcement, there is not, at least that I know of,” Earnest continued. “But the president has asked his team to examine the array of executive authorities that are available to him to try to make progress on his goals. So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally,” Earnest finished.

Federal Judge Rebukes Obama’s EPA

Most transparent administration evah! Recall his promise:

 

Ever since the moment he entered the White House his administration has been one of the most secretive and least transparent since the Nixon years and now we get even more evidence of this fact.

In 2012 Mark Levin’s organization filed a FOIA to the EPA to discover if they were hiding the implementation of certain regulations prior to the 2012 election. What did the EPA do?
