Did Obama Pay Journos For Positive Coverage And To Attack Trump? Why yes, yes he did…

DC Whispers

It was called the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act signed into law in 2016 by then-President Obama (and allowed by Establishment Republicans like Paul Ryan) that took effect in 2017 and allocated a whopping $160 MILLION taxpayer dollars over two years to pay for government-sponsored propaganda. The money is now gone and guess what? About 1000 journalists are suddenly being laid off.

Coincidence? Hah! This was classic Obama, reaching into the bottomless trough of taxpayer dollars to push his self-promoting agenda. He did it with green energy, America-last trade agreements, and his post-2016 coverage to help ensure he remained relevant in order to quickly accumulate tens of millions of dollars worth of book deals, Netflix deals, and speaking fees. 

It’s enough to make even the Clintons blush.

Virginia’s New Anti-NDAA Detention Bill Turns the Table on Feds

Tenth Amendment Center

RICHMOND, Va.- (Jan. 19, 2015)  A bill introduced in the Virginia assembly would take the next step in stopping illegal federal kidnapping under the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act.

Virginia stood alone and passed the first bill in the country addressing detention provisions written into the NDAA  in 2012. That law forbids state agencies, in some situations, from cooperating with any federal attempts to exercise the indefinite detention provisions written into sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act.

HB2144, sponsored by Del. Benjamin L. Cline (R – House District 24), takes things two steps beyond simply refusing to cooperate with the federal agents in the event of indefinite detention in Virginia. This bill turns the tables and systematically creates the type of leverage and attention D.C. would not want public if it refuses to cooperate with the state of Virginia.

This legislation would require two things from the feds if it detains a U.S. citizen in the state of Virginia.

Main Stream Press Silent on Indefinite Detention’s Threat to Every American

Freedom Outpost

One of the most under-reported issues of 2014 has been Indefinite Detention.

So kudos to the Pontiac Tribune for featuring a story about PANDA, People Against The NDAA.

The goal of the group is stop and raise awareness about the NDAA, National Defense Authorization Act.

“The NDAA was actually declared unconstitutional by Federal Judge Katherine Forrest in Hedges v Obama.  Judge Katherine Forrest was appointed by the Obama administration, by the way…  The very next day, the Obama administration requested an emergency stay and it was granted by another judge. As a result, the NDAA is still in full swing today. This is just another example of how the courts have failed us and it is up to us locally to stop this,” wrote the Pontiac Tribune.

Congress Passes Defense Budget With Troop Benefit Cuts

Weasel Zippers

On the plus side the A10 has been saved for now.

Via Stars and Stripes

Congress approved a defense authorization bill Friday, setting priorities for the military and clearing the way for cuts to troop benefits next year.

The bill passed a final 89-11 vote in the Senate, and lays out plans for military personnel, equipment such as the A-10 Thunderbolt aircraft, and the war in Iraq and Syria. It sets the servicemember pay raise at 1 percent, and tightens up housing allowances and Tricare pharmacy coverage as the Department of Defense grapples with mandatory caps on its spending in the coming years.

The cuts were requested by the Pentagon and White House and finally approved in the National Defense Authorization Act despite opposition in the House. Military brass had lobbied for deeper cuts but the bill takes some first steps toward what many in Congress believe will be years of reductions in personnel costs, unless lawmakers can strike a deal to lift the budget caps designed to deal with the national debt.[…]

The NDAA calls for a $495.5 billion base defense budget and $63.7 billion for overseas military operations related to the war. Here are the key changes to benefits:

Servicemembers have gotten 1.8 percent pay raises but the NDAA allows President Barack Obama to continue with a plan to reduce the increase to 1 percent.

The military’s basic housing allowance covers 100 percent of rental costs for troops and the bill brings that down to 99 percent. The Pentagon wants to slow inflation increases in the coming years until it pays only 95 percent of costs, with troops covering the remaining amount.

It will increase Tricare out-of-pocket costs for prescription medicines by $3 per year, which puts off any decision of more copay increases after 2015 but still tracks with a Pentagon plan to increase troop contributions by $30 over a decade.

Meanwhile, the bill offers some protections for the A-10, known as the Warthog, which is much loved by infantry troops but slated for retirement by the Air Force.

No, Obama is Not Above the Law

It was hard enough trying to keep up with the revelations of various scandals that have been the product of the Obama administration, but now into the second year of his second term, the news of its actions—some of which are illegal, some of which ignore Congress’s authority, and some of which seemed determined to destroy our economy and attack our constitutional freedoms—all keep assaulting our comprehension.

Like many Americans I have fears of losing our freedoms as set forth in the Bill of Rights. I have doubts about an almost invisible “recovery” of the economy when 92,009,000 are still not in the labor force. I look at the Obama presidency and see one that seems increasingly lawless and witless in so many ways.

Obama Gave Material Assistance To Our Taliban Enemy

Investors.com

National Security: Federal law prohibits any person — repeat, any person — from providing material assistance to terrorists, including human assets. But that’s what the president did in releasing five Taliban commanders.

When iconic interviewer David Frost asked former President Nixon about the legality of his actions in the Watergate affair, Nixon said “when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.”

That’s an attitude seemingly shared by the current occupant of the Oval Office.

As former congressman and Afghanistan veteran Allen West points out, President Obama signed into law only months ago the National Defense Authorization Act, which makes it a crime to offer or provide any material support to terrorist groups. It makes no exception as to who and under which circumstances.

Barack Obama Should Be Charged With Treason for Aiding Terrorist Organizations

Freedom Outpost

Over the past few days, the world has been reminded of the dangers of  terrorism born from radical Islam. The first  attack happened at a busy shopping center in Nairobi, Kenya where a Somali  terror group with links to Al Qaeda killed at least 60 people and took many  more  hostage. At present, it seems that at least 5 and perhaps as many as 10 of  the  terrorists were  American citizens.

The second attack came in the form of twin  suicide bombings at an All Saints Church, which is a Christian church in  Peshawar, Pakistan. The terrorist group responsible for this is also Al Qaeda  linked with headquarters in Palestinian territory. This attack killed at least  120 people. The reason for the attack is said to be because of American drone  strikes in Pakistan.

These recent attacks only echo the mindset behind terrorist groups such as Al  Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamic terrorist  organizations. 

This year alone we have witnessed the barbarism of an Al Qaeda rebel fighter  in Syria cutting the heart out of a government soldier and eating it. (WARNING:  The following videos are graphic in nature)
