And Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (who was born in Cuba) is not happy about it.
(WASHINGTON) – Today U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, commented on the decision by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to include “The Life and Works of Ernesto Che Guevara” in this year’s additions to the Memory of the World Register. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:
“UNESCO continued its longstanding tradition of making a mockery of its own institution when it opted to venerate and memorialize the life of a blood thirsty, murderous sadist, Che Guevara, by including his works as an entry in its ‘Memory of the World Register.’ This decision is more than an insult to the families of those Cubans who were lined up and summarily executed by Che and his merciless cronies but it also serves as a direct contradiction to the UNESCO ideals of encouraging peace and universal respect for human rights.
“This latest reprehensible action is a microcosm of the existing problems within UNESCO today. There isn’t any semblance of common sense left in that body. From its decision to accept a non-existent state of Palestine into its membership, to glorifying Che’s ruthless crimes against humanity, UNESCO deserves no funding from US taxpayers. The Obama Administration is wrong to continue to seek to restore funding to UNESCO. The Administration must immediately end its push to send $225 million in American taxpayer money to UNESCO that would enable that organization to keep undermining our friend and ally, the democratic Jewish State of Israel, and would insult the memories of those who suffered under Che and continue to suffer under the Castro brothers.”
|Who initiated the “Sovereign Citizen” and “Operation Vigilant Eagle” programs?|
(Jul. 22, 2013) — In late 2008 or early 2009, the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice, and FBI, with the cooperation of the Department of Defense, launched “Operation Vigilant Eagle,” which was designed to scrutinize military veterans for tendencies to radicalization. Combined with the efforts of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), DHS, state “fusion centers,” and local law enforcers, training programs depicting allegedly angry veterans, “birthers,” those opposed to illegal immigration and amnesty, and supporters of the U.S. Constitution and the Bible have been characterized as possible “domestic terrorists” and “Sovereign Citizens” under Obama.
At least one criminal complaint against a veteran has been proven to have been fabricated but landed him in federal prison on a multiple-year sentence for a crime he could not have committed because he was not in the location where the government claimed the crime occurred. There were no arrests on the day of the alleged infractions, and law enforcers who allegedly witnessed people carrying guns near a courthouse remain unnamed. In his affidavit, FBI Special Agent Mark Van Balen admitted that he himself had not witnessed the crimes he alleged had been committed on April 20, 2010 in Madisonville, TN by Darren Wesley Huff.
Both Huff and another veteran attempting to stand up to local corruption, Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III, were depicted in a 2011 Tennessee law enforcement training program as “Sovereign Citizens” in company with murderers and bank fraud perpetrators.
In August 2012, U.S. Marine Corps veteran Brandon Raub was arrested at gunpoint for posting allegedly controversial statements made on his Facebook page which were described as “terrorist in nature.” Raub was forced into a psychiatric institution until a federal judge ruled a week later that there was no probable cause to hold him. The Rutherford Institute is now suing the government on Raub’s behalf for an unspecified amount, claiming civil rights and constitutional violations. In an interview conducted while he was incarcerated, when asked about what people could learn from his experience, Raub said that “Government is like fire.”
After Raub was seized, Rutherford founder John Whitehead told Glenn Beck that his organization received an onslaught of calls from America’s veterans to his organization reported harassment, arrests without probable cause, incarceration, intimidation and mysterious disappearances.
During Obama’s occupation of the White House, the U.S. military has become increasingly hostile to evangelical Christians, Jews, Catholics and others but has softened its stance on radical Islam and turned its ire on its own for teaching an approved course on the subject to other officers. First Amendment rights have been under attack from Obama appointees who protect Islam while threatening arrest of anyone opposing it.
From 2007 to early 2009, former Navy SEAL Harry G. Butler, III spoke out about his certainty that Barack Hussein Obama was not a U.S. citizen. In a recent conversation, he told The Post & Email that his issue was not presidential eligibility, but rather, Obama’s lack of American citizenship and his resultant status as “a phony.”
Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution states that the president and commander-in-chief must be a “natural born Citizen.” It is understood that a non-U.S. citizen cannot hold the office of the presidency.
Several members of the military on active-duty status challenged Obama’s legitimacy in 2009 and 2010. One, Dr. Terry Lakin, was ultimately sentenced to six months at Ft. Leavenworth prison after he refused to follow an order to deploy to Afghanistan on the grounds that he was unsure if Obama was eligible to issue it. As part of discovery in his defense, Lakin had planned to request that Hawaii Department of Health officials release Obama’s original birth record to show that he had been born in the U.S., but Col. Denise Lind prevented all discovery on the grounds that it might prove “embarrassing” to Obama.
A former presidential candidate opined that Obama was never vetted for eligibility or citizenship. Obama has been reported to have been born in Kenya, Hawaii, and Indonesia and self-reported that he held dual citizenship upon his birth.
With 18 years of service and his release from prison in May 2011, Lakin received a dishonorable discharge from the Army and loss of pension and pay. While he was incarcerated at Ft. Leavenworth, the White House released the birth certificate image which has now been proven fraudulent.
During its 22-month-long investigation of the long-form birth certificate purported to be Obama’s posted on the White House website since April 2011, the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse has reported that not only is the image a “computer-generated forgery,” but also that reporters, commentators and others have been threatened with their careers or worse if they should continue to report on it.
The Post & Email has received numerous death threats, as has Cold Case Posse lead investigator Michael Zullo, because of their efforts to uncover the truth behind Obama’s ascendancy to the White House and now-proven fraudulent documents, including his Selective Service registration card.
Zullo has stated that the investigation has found no evidence that Barack Hussein Obama is an American citizen.
On July 12, 2013, Lakin was a guest on the “Freedom Friday” radio show hosted by Pastor and author Carl Gallups. Butler was listening to the show called in, speaking briefly with Gallups and putting forth a question for Zullo, who was Gallups’ subsequent guest. Butler told The Post & Email that he called in to “give Terry Lakin an ‘Atta Boy.’”
Butler told The Post & Email that he was arrested on January 23, 2009 for allegedly threatening Obama, a charge he denies. After being tranquilized against his will, he spent two weeks in a local hospital and then a federal prison in Georgia. He was later relocated to a prison in Miami, FL, and several months later, to Butner, NC for “another psychiatric evaluation.” In early December 2009, Butler was unexpectedly told one day that he was “free to leave.”
Butler denies having made threats against Obama’s person and stated that he had been trying to raise awareness of Obama’s “ineligibility to be eligible” to serve as president with his elected officials. He told The Post & Email that he believes “They’re all scared to death” of the issue and “in complete lockdown.”
Butler believes that the drawn-out “evaluations” are the “way they keep you under thumb.”
We asked Butler if he ever underwent a psychological evaluation, to which he responded, “The two doctors I had were very, very nice, just wonderful people, but then they also had some that I thought were really sleazy. Butner is a medical complex where they do operations and everything; it’s called an ‘FMC.’ Do you know who was in the ward with me? Bernie Madoff. Somebody had beaten the hell out of him, and they took him out of the ward that he was in and put him in with the psychiatric evaluation people.”
We then asked Butler, “Were there patients who were not considered psychiatric in these facilities where you were?”
“Oh, yeah. They had different units, depending on what your problem was.”
“Were you in with people who really were psychiatric cases?”
“You have people who tried to kill themselves, so they would be on suicide watch. They would take them to a different unit and put them in a padded cell.”
“Were they also criminals?”
“They were criminals, and all kinds of foreigners in there. A lot of Mexicans and people from foreign countries. There was a dentist in there that I just absolutely loved. He was in there for money problems, and he was a very religious man. We became very close friends, and I thought the world of him. The majority of them are young black males who are in there for drug problems. There was a Latin guy I thought the world of who was in there for money laundering. So there are people from all different walks of life. There are millions. There are 30,000,000 people in prison in this country today. Thirty million, and we look at the population of 330,000,000, and that’s a high percentage,” Butler told us.
The Post & Email asked Butler if while in prison, he thought about the reason he was there, to which he said, “All the time. When all of this was unfolding, they talk about all of those things, but everything I do I really think it out. I may write something that’s provocative, but it’s intentionally done and it’s well-written and well-thought-out. That’s just the way I do things. I think things out. I was reading in one of your articles with the criminal complaint about my supposedly ranting and raving, and I thought, ‘This is so bogus…’ What really gets me is that one person can do this and get away with it as long as he is protecting the president.”
We then asked Butler, “Do you think that people were treated similarly for saying the same type of things about George W. Bush?” to which he responded, “I’m sure they were.” Source link – © 2013, The Post & Email.

The former head of U.S. forces in Africa, General Carter Ham, told the Aspen Security Forum that it quickly became clear the assault on the American consulate in Benghazi last year was a terrorist attack and not a spontaneous demonstration.
“It became apparent to all of us quickly that this was not a demonstration, this was a violent attack,” Ham said. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton initially had portrayed the embassy attack as a response to an inflammatory internet video.
You would think after spending $100 million dollars of taxpayer money on a recent trip to Africa would be enough for one summer. But it’s not.
The Obama family have already booked their next getaway to Martha’s Vineyard. They will reportedly be staying in a $7.6 million dollar mansion the week of August 10th. Their vacation will last about a week.
During the 2012 campaign, they couldn’t make a trip to an exclusive island so they are trying to make up for it up this summer.
While families are struggling to make ends meet, the Obama’s are taking trip after trip on the taxpayers dollar.

Over the course of its 69-year history, the Soviet Union was notorious for its heavy-handed suppression of political dissent—most infamously through its use of the Siberian GULAGs. But it was during the 1960s and 1970s that the Communist Party took their intolerance for ideological deviance to extremes by diagnosing and institutionalizing so-called counterrevolutionaries with mental illness.
It was a frightening episode in Soviet history in which perfectly healthy citizens could be deemed psychotic simply on account of their political views.
