Day Before Denouncing Christianity, Obama Held Secretive Meeting With Islamic Leaders

Moonbattery

Yesterday Obama once again made good on his promise to “stand with the Muslims” when he responded to the latest ghastly atrocity by the Islamic State by absurdly blaming Christianity for slavery and denouncing the Crusades. On the previous day, he attended a religious meeting more to his liking:

President Obama met with American Muslim leaders [Wednesday] afternoon, according to the White House schedule, but so far the administration is unwilling to reveal who attended the meeting, which was closed to the press.

Considering the malevolent ultra-radicals he openly consults with (e.g., Al Sharpton) and even appoints to positions of great power (e.g., Eric Holder), the imagination balks at who must have attended this meeting for the Regime to want it kept secret. Members of the terror umbrella group the Muslim Brotherhood were likely present, given Obama’s record of support for it at the expense of Western interests (e.g., see here, here, and here).

In all probability the most innocuous attendee was left-wing Muslim comedian Dean Obeidallah:

The White House won’t say who attended a meeting between Muslim leaders and President Obama at the White House on Wednesday, but comedian Dean Obeidallah says he was there. Writing in the Daily Beast, Obeidallah said discrimination was the main topic: “In fact, it was clearly the No. 1 issue raised: The alarming rise in anti-Muslim bigotry in America.” Obeiallah is well known for his flame-throwing attacks on Republicans, referencing “the GOP’s World Cup of bat[s**t] crazy” and a racial joke about the adopted grandchild of 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney. The comedian said he went to White House seeking help in encouraging Democrats to denounce Republicans’ comments on Islam. “My point was that while bigotry from certain Republicans is nothing new, I’m alarmed about the Democratic response to these comments. What is the Democrats’ response, you ask? Simple: silence.” He said Obama was very receptive: “While I can’t share the president’s exact response, I can tell you that he expressed his strong commitment to our community to fight anti-Muslim bigotry. I fully understand it’s not easy problem to remedy. But it was very heartening to hear the president’s passionate response.”

Try to picture FDR responding to the Blitzkrieg sweeping across Europe by meeting with Nazis to passionately strategize against anti-fascist bigotry. In light of the explosive rise of Islamic terrorism in general and the Islamic State in particular, that would be the equivalent.

It Never Ends: The EPA Is Coming To Regulate Americans’ Wooden Stoves…

Weasel Zippers

Via Daily Caller:

The EPA has finalized a 344-page rule to make wood stoves more environmentally friendly, meaning that millions of Americans will soon be forced to buy more expensive wood-fired stoves.

Republican lawmakers have opposed the rule, saying it would harm millions in rural America that rely on wood stoves to heat their homes every winter. With natural gas and electricity prices on the rise, wood stoves can be an economical choice for many living in the countryside.

“The EPA’s shortsighted regulatory overreach is once again hitting hardworking Montanans in their pocketbooks,” said Montana Republican Sen. Steve Daines.

Some 2.4 million American households rely on wood stoves for heat. When the agency proposed the rule last year, critics argued 80 percent of wood stoves in use would not meet tightened standards and consumers would never be able to buy them brand new — raising energy costs for millions of people during the coldest times of the year.

Billions in IRS Welfare Dollars to Be Paid Out to Illegal Immigrants

Independent Sentinel

Billions of dollars in tax refunds will go to all the illegals just given amnesty by Barack Obama. It was confirmed by IRS Commissioner John Koskinen Tuesday during the Senate hearings.

These are extra ‘refunds’ for money earned illegally while they were here illegally. It is being done through the Earned Income Tax Credit.

The Credit is another form of welfare in which money is redistributed to low income workers from higher-paid workers. Some get back more money than they put in.

These particular illegals are to be given Social Security numbers and with that, they can collect the Earned Income Tax Credit. They actually get paid by taxpayers for not making enough money. It was meant for our poor citizens, not them.

Obama’s amnesty allows this according to the IRS interpretation of the law.

The illegals have to have filed returns but it does go back retroactively.

This is being done while Americans are unable to find work and more than 92 million are out of the workforce.

“This is the problem you get into,” said Sen. Charles E. Grassley, an Iowa Republican. “The IRS’s interpretation of the EITC eligibility requirements undermines congressional policy for not rewarding those working illegally in the United States.”

Mr. Grassley asked Mr. Koskinen to go back and revisit his agency’s interpretation of the laws.

Don’t expect any changes. Mr. Obama wants to invite illegal immigration.

It is currently unknown how many billions of dollars will be handed out.

In 2010, the IRS paid out $4.2 billion to illegals who claimed a child tax credit

Liberal Media Finally Notices Real Unemployment Under Obama Is Still Above 10%

The Gateway Pundit

The real Obama unemployment rate is above 10%
unemployment obama

The number that’s released by the Labor Department, the 5.6% unemployment number, does not count the millions of people who were unable to find a job gave up looking for work.
Via Rush Limbaugh:

And, now even Gallup Chairman Jim Clifton is reporting on this horrid reality:

Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.

There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

Obama Inc. Violates Israeli Sovereignty/Agreements

Joe for America

 

OBAMA INC. is a criminal regime, yes, most of us recognize this.

IN this regard, their toxic hands reach across the world, most especially into Israel. Now, no one (including this American-Israeli) is saying that Israel’s leaders are pure as the driven snow, far from it. However, aside from Israel being America’s twin pillar, helping to prop up western civilization, the fact remains that it is the only sea of stability in the most volatile region in the world.

THEREFORE, why exactly would Obama & gang seek to upend the Jewish homeland?

RHETORICAL.

GOP Complicit in Obama’s Illegal Alien Crime Wave

Moonbattery

One predictable result of the massive Third World invasion Obama has instigated by sending unmistakable signals that immigration law would no longer be enforced is disease. Another is crime. Nearly as predictable is the perfidious GOP’s silence on the issue:

President Obama unleashed a nation-wide crime wave when he directed his deputies to release 36,007 foreign criminals back into Americans neighborhoods in 2013, instead of repatriating the criminals, according to a list of crimes released Friday, Jan. 30.

But GOP senators kept the list secret until after Obama’s nominee for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, completed her confirmation hearing on Wednesday, Jan. 28.

Had the list been made public at the hearing, GOP senators could have pushed the media to focus on the huge cost of Obama’s 2010 decision to minimize enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws.

But that attention would have also increased public pressure to reject Lynch, who is supported by Democrats and their allies in the media. There’s little or no evidence that Republican leaders, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, want to reject Lynch, or to encourage a 2016 debate on Obama’s business-backed — but very unpopular — push for greater immigration.

Currently, Lynch has open support from a few Republican senators, and is on track for confirmation, despite her endorsement of Obama’s decision to not enforce popular immigration laws.

The next chief law enforcement officer has openly announced that she has no intention of enforcing the law. But she’s a woman of color; that’s the important thing.

Here’s what Obama inflicted on the American public — and what Republicans are now complicit in:

The newly released list describes criminal convictions that were won against 1,000 of the 36,007 foreign criminals who were released — but not repatriated — in 2013.

The 1,000 criminals’ convictions included 196 drunk-driving charges and 57 other driving offenses, 88 theft, 69 burglary and 24 larceny charges, 26 assault charges and 35 charges of battery, 178 drug charges, two rape charges and at least four auto thefts.

The list … may be only a partial description of the havoc wrought by Obama’s criminals, and it does not include crimes where there were no convictions, nor crimes committed after the list was completed. … Most were in the country illegally, and they were convicted of roughly 88,000 additional crimes prior to their 2013 release. Their prior 88,000 convictions covered 193 killings, 426 rapes or sexual assaults, 303 kidnappings and 16,070 drug offenses.

What a weapon this would be in the hands of an opposition party. But we have no opposition party.

GOP legislators also are not using the list to spur criticism of Obama’s very unpopular immigration policies.

Instead, the list was quietly released late Friday afternoon by Sen. Chuck Grassley, the head of the judiciary committee.

The Friday afternoon document dump is how our rulers release information they don’t want anyone to know about. When it comes to our demographic transformation into a Third World country, the leftist-dominated media is only too happy to help keep facts hidden.

At the hearing, Lynch endorsed Obama’s low enforcement policy, and even said that all foreigners have a right to compete against Americans for jobs in the United States. …

Established media outlets did not publish her radical views, which are opposed by roughly 90 percent of Americans, including GOP voters.

But not GOP officeholders, evidently.

Since no one with power wants to stop him, Obama will continue to import criminals on a massive scale, and to release them when they are arrested for doing what criminals do.

Everything about the Obama Regime is treasonous — and everything about the Republican establishment is complicit.
