The Patriot Factor
Fox News has a blockbuster report published tonight which sheds further light on why the Obama administration has been involved in a massive cover up surrounding the Benghazi terrorist attack.
New reports indicate that rebels allied with al-Qaida were being trained in Benghazi and then sent up to fight in the Syrian civil war against the regime of Bashar al-Assad. These include terrorist networks involved in the September 11th terrorist attack on our U.S. compound in Benghazi.
The Obama administration knows that if the American people were to learn that they were helping fund, train and transport al-Qaida terrorists to fight in Syria – some of whom were behind the Benghazi terrorist attack that killed 4 Americans and injured countless others, there would be a severe backlash from the American people.
Here’s the headline from Fox News and an excerpt from their report:
U.S. intelligence agencies earlier this month uncovered new evidence that al Qaeda-linked terrorists in Benghazi are training foreign jihadists to fight with Syria’s Islamist rebels, according to U.S. officials.
Ansar al-Sharia, the al Qaeda-affiliated militia that U.S. officials say orchestrated the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound and a CIA facility in Benghazi, is running several training camps for jihadists in Benghazi and nearby Darnah, another port city further east, said officials who discussed some details of the camps on condition of anonymity.
The officials said the terror training camps have been in operation since at least May and are part of a network that funnels foreign fighters to Syrian rebel groups, including the Al-Nusra Front, the most organized of the Islamist rebel groups fighting the Bashar al-Assad regime in Damascus.
The Obama administration is demonstrating once again that it is the most deceitful and manipulative presidential administrations in our nation’s history.

Obama’s Fake Credentials?
“ABSURDITIES FROM THE WEB”

(Aug. 29, 2013) — Barack Hussein Obama is considering military action against the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad for allegedly using chemical weapons in the ongoing civil war with rebel forces.

Obama has supported the Syrian opposition with arms, although members of Al Qaeda and The Muslim Brotherhood are known to be fighting with them. Reports of atrocities committed by both sides have been reported in the two years in which the civil war has ensued. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, who Obama appointed for a second term in June, advised against arming the Syrian rebels based on concerns about the cost necessary “to preserve a functioning state” after providing assistance.
On Monday, Obama awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest military award, to Staff. Sgt. Ty Carter, who charged through a firefight with members of the Taliban in Afghanistan on October 3, 2009 to carry a gravely wounded soldier in an attempt to save his life.
Spc. Stephan L. Mace ultimately died of his injuries, and Carter was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), from which he told CBS News he has largely recovered.
Combat Outpost Keating, where Carter was stationed, was “surrounded” by Taliban with grenades and automatic rifles, resulting in the deaths of eight Americans with 53 wounded.
Carter described the outpost as “clearly undefendable” and “a dangerous place to be,” with Taliban able to shoot from behind the mountains. The Washington Post reported that “After the attack, U.S. and Afghan troops left the area, and American commanders tried a new approach to stablizing the fractious region: They began working with one of their former enemies.”
The U.S. Army website said of the award ceremony:
After telling the story of the ambush, which raged for 13 hours between 53 Soldiers and some 300 Taliban, and citing Carter’s complete disregard for his own safety, President Barack Obama draped the Medal of Honor around the 33-year-old Cavalry scout’s neck in the White House East Room, Aug. 26.
(CNSNews.com) – Louis Fisher, a scholar in residence at the Constitution Project who served for 40 years as a constitutional law expert at the Library of Congress, says Americans and members of Congress should understand that President Barack Obama committed a “very grave offense” against the Constitution in taking military action in Libya without congressional authorization.
Another installment of fatwa funnies.
Religious leaders at the Darul Uloom seminary, in Deoband, declared that viewing animations – even those featuring comedy characters – was against the tenets of Islam, reports the Bangalore-based Deccan Herald. It quotes senior cleric Mufti Arif Quasmi as saying: “[A] cartoon is a picture. Besides, it is not for the children. It should not be watched.” There are many interpretations of Islamic teachings on the depiction of animate objects, with the most strict banning it completely on the basis that it imitates Allah’s acts of creation. Other scholars, however, permit photography and video.
The Darul Uloom ruling was criticised by one member of the All India Personal Law Board for “making a mockery” of Islam. “I don’t think the muftis who issued the fatwa have any knowledge of the subject or have applied their mind to understanding the art of cartoons at all,” the senior Imam told Mumbai-based broadsheet DNA. It’s not the first ruling by the seminary to cause controversy. In the past, it’s reportedly declared it unlawful for women to use perfume containing alcohol, or to wear tattoos, jeans or “Western hairstyles”.
The Weekly Standard
The White House just announced two new executive measures for gun control. The announcement came to reporters via email.
“FACT SHEET: New Executive Actions to Reduce Gun Violence,” the subject of the announcement reads.
“Today, the Obama administration announced two new common-sense executive actions to keep the most dangerous firearms out of the wrong hands and ban almost all re-imports of military surplus firearms to private entities. These executive actions build on the 23 executive actions that the Vice President recommended as part of the comprehensive gun violence reduction plan and the President unveiled on January 16, 2013,” reads the White House’s announcement.
The war drums are pounding and President Barack Obama is each day closer to taking military action against the Syrian government. There are major questions about why the U.S. would become involved in Syria, and whether or not the claim that the Assad regime used chemical weapons on citizens living in a Damascus suburb are based in fact. Administration officials say that military action against Syria would be done “not to create a regime change,” but some members of Congress aren’t buying it.
“If it’s not an effort to exact regime change then what is it?” asks Republican Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie. “Is it just retaliation? Is it bullying? Is it showing everybody in the world that we have missiles, and we can fire them into your country because we don’t like what we see?”
Family Security Matters
Fethullah Gulen has been called “the most dangerous Islamist on planet earth.”
He resides not in Islamabad or Istanbul but within a mountain fortress in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania.
If Barack Obama decides to attack the Syrian regime, he has ensured – for the very first time in history – that the United States will be on the same side as al-Qa’ida.
Quite an alliance! Was it not the Three Musketeers who shouted “All for one and one for all” each time they sought combat? This really should be the new battle cry if – or when – the statesmen of the Western world go to war against Bashar al-Assad.
The men who destroyed so many thousands on 9/11 will then be fighting alongside the very nation whose innocents they so cruelly murdered almost exactly 12 years ago. Quite an achievement for Obama, Cameron, Hollande and the rest of the miniature warlords.
This, of course, will not be trumpeted by the Pentagon or the White House – nor, I suppose, by al-Qa’ida – though they are both trying to destroy Bashar. So are the Nusra front, one of al-Qa’ida’s affiliates. But it does raise some interesting possibilities.
These people should be ashamed of themselves.

Noticeably absent from the speaker line-up at the Let Freedom Ring event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington today: the nation’s only black Senator, Tim Scott.
Scott, a Republican Representative appointed by S.C. Governor Nikki Haley earlier this year to fill former Sen. Jim DeMint’s seat in the U.S. Senate after he retired, was not invited to participate in the historic event, a spokesperson for the Senator confirmed to Red Alert Politics in an email.
African-American leaders who did receive an invitation to speak at included Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) – who participated in the original March – Martin Luther King III, MSNBC host Al Sharpton and movie stars Jamie Foxx, Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker.
