America—You Be the Judge

By: Retired Adm. James A. Lyons
Accuracy in Media

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.

DOCUMENTS REVEAL Iran Is Assisting Al-Qaeda & Has Worked With Terrorist Group For Years

Gateway Pundit

According to a letter signed by terrorist leader Ayman al-Zawahiri that was intercepted in 2010, the Iranian regime was providing “monetary and infrastructure assistance” to Al-Qaeda.

It was believed that Iran was protecting Saad Bin Laden, the son of Osama Bin Laden, and other Al Qaeda leaders including Saif al-Adel who fled Afghanistan in 2001. The Al Qaeda leadership holds regular meetings in eastern Iran according to a 2007 report.

Now there is more evidence that the Iranian regime was cooperating with Al-Qaeda for years.
Documents captured during the Osama Bin Laden raid revealed Al-Qaeda links to the Iranian regime.

The Weekly Standard reported:

More than 1 million documents and files were captured by the Navy Seals who raided bin Laden’s safe house in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May 2011. One year later, in May 2012, the Obama administration released just 17 of them.

While there is some overlap between the files introduced as evidence in Brooklyn and those that were previously made public in 2012, much of what is in the trial exhibits had never been made public before.

The files do not support the view, promoted by some in the Obama administration, that bin Laden was in “comfortable retirement,” “sidelined,” or “a lion in winter” in the months leading up to his death. On the contrary, bin Laden is asked to give his order on a host of issues, ranging from the handling of money to the movement of terrorist operatives.

Some of the key revelations in the newly-released bin Laden files relate to al Qaeda’s dealings with Iran and presence in Afghanistan.

A top al Qaeda operative asked bin Laden for permission to relocate to Iran in June 2010 as he plotted attacks around the world. That operative, Yunis al Mauritani, was a senior member of al Qaeda’s so-called “external operations” team, and plotted to launch Mumbai-style attacks in Europe…

…Although Iran and al Qaeda have had significant differences, there is much intelligence showing that the two continue to collude.

During President Obama’s administration, the Treasury and State Departments have repeatedly exposed the formerly “secret deal” between the Iranian regime and al Qaeda that allows the terrorist organization to shuttle operatives around the globe. Some of those operatives included Yunis al Mauritani’s men.

The June 2010 memo to bin Laden indicates that al Qaeda had a significant presence in Afghanistan at the time.

Obama’s True Enemy

Obamas-Enemy-List

CFP

Republicans, and conservatives that file into Tea Party meetings and rallies, Constitution Classes, and Libertarian gatherings, say time and time again that they are so tired of having to battle the failures of President Barack Obama.  His failed policies are nearly more than they can digest.

obama-finger

He fails to understand economics, his failed Obamacare program is destroying health care in America, he fails to understand the underlying reasons behind why the government shutdowns occurred, he has failed in the Middle Class and he has failed to bring anybody out of poverty.  Failure after failure after failure after failure.  He even fails to stand against an enemy determined to destroy us, fails to connect jihadism to Islam, and has failed to properly apply America’s might against an enemy he is unwilling to admit.

I am here to tell you that President Barack Obama has failed at nothing.  From his point of view, he is a total success.  He is, however, as accused, failing to name the enemy, as so many folks on the right-of-center accuse him of when it comes to the worldwide battle we see emerging around the globe.  However, who we see to be the enemy, and who he views to be the enemy, are two different things.

US – Iran nuclear deal may be dead on arrival and should be

Family Security Matters

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD, MAJ. GEN. PAUL E. VALLELY, US ARMY (RET)

The most recent talks in Geneva between US Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif may have completed a major step toward a landmark nuclear accord that the Obama Administration believes will diminish Tehran’s pathways to a nuclear weapon. The potential deal, as reported by the AP and The New York Times, would impose uranium stockpile and enrichment limitations on Iran, and Tehran would have to submit to a restrictive verification and inspection regime for a period of 10 to 15 years. In return, sanctions on Iran would be lifted, and its status as a uranium-enriching nation would be prescribed under international law.

Israeli Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz stated , however, that if the emerging US – Iran nuclear agreement did not include measures preventing any nuclear cooperation with North Korea or other rogue states, it would be meaningless, referring to North Korea’s previous clandestine and illegal nuclear projects in Syria – “We all know that Iran, Syria and North Korea are very close to each other,” he said.

Yet the Obama Administration appears to ignore this potential loophole in order to conclude an agreement acceptable to Iran. Unless specifically prohibited and enforced within the terms and conditions, Tehran may attempt to sidestep the protocols by “outsourcing'” parts of the bomb production process to North Korea, Iran’s long-term partner on everything from launch missiles to guidance systems to nuclear war head technology and other required components.

Democrats “Accountable” for Illegal Aliens “Murdering Americans All Over Our Cities”

Independent Sentinel

Barack Obama threatened Border Patrol at a town hall this past week, calling them “Border Control.”

Perhaps he should stop insulting Border Patrol and worry about the illegal drug cartel members and terrorists who are known to be slipping over our borders at his open invitation.

rep-pete-sessions-r-texas

Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) said Thursday evening that President Barack Obama and Democrats, who are responsible for the continual release of undocumented immigrants, are murdering Americans.

“Every day, all along border states, maybe other places, there are murders by people who have been arrested coming into this country, who have been released by the Obama administration, I believe in violation of the law, who are murdering Americans all over our cities,” the Rules Committee chairman said at a meeting while discussing Obama’s deportation relief policies. “We hold the Democrat Party and the president personally accountable for this action.”

The instances of illegal aliens killing Americans are too numerous to count.

Rep. Steve King said much the same thing last year.

President Obama announced his 10-point plan to violate the Constitution last November.

Since then a Texas judge has issued an injunction of the order as a result of a lawsuit by 26 states who say the costs will place an undo burden on their states.

Mr. Obama has promised to violate that order.

He has also decided to give the illegal immigrants Social Security numbers which gives them welfare benefits in the form of Earned Income Tax Credits. They will even be allowed to go back four years and redo their tax forms to collect up to $35,000 in back money. They also get an automatic “birthright citizenship”.

No American president has ever violated the Separation of Powers as Barack Obama has.

Last year, he released 36,000 criminal illegal aliens onto our streets.

He and his party are accountable for the damage being done, not only to individual families who suffer at the hands of criminal aliens, but to the cities now plagued with illegal alien crime.

The Sinoloa Cartel has set up a lucrative business in the United States and they hire illegal alien MS-13 gang members stationed in the U.S. to do their dirty work. It isn’t being reported by our government.

For example, the DOJ gave out an official news release about a recent kidnapping of two teenagers but omitted the fact that it was orchestrated by the Sinoloa Cartel and MS-13, according to a report.

Listen:

Most U.S. crime is committed by illegal alien gangs. They are the primary distributors of illicit drugs in the U.S.  The Justice Department said that up to 80% of crime in the U.S. is committed by gangs and that gang membership in this country has grown to 1 million, an increase of 200,000 in the last few years.

According the U.S. Justice Department’s National Drug Assessment of 2011, Mexican drug cartels have been reported to be operating in more than a thousand U.S. cities in 2009 and 2010. It has gotten much worse since then.

These cartels control most of the distribution of heroin, marijuana, and meth in the U.S. and their operations are increasing, according to the report.

The report further states that the cartels in the U.S. operate primarily in Florida, the Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic, New England, New York, New Jersey, Pacific, Southeast, Southwest, and West Central.

The report concludes that these Mexican-based organizations “control access to the U.S.-Mexico border, the primary gateway for moving the bulk of illicit drugs into the United States.”

This is a willful destruction of the country and the murder of innocent Americans for an ideological cause.

Obama’s Walk on the “Dark Side”

Family Security Matters

For commenting President Obama does not love America, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani need be admonished. His comment gives America-bashers a bad name. Obama’s actions have sunk far lower than his unloving acts of bashing America.

While negative attacks about Giuliani’s comments are hypocritical, his words raise a much deeper, and darker, side of Obama.

As Obama continually disses America both at home (as he did at the Summit on Countering Violent Extremism to an audience peppered with representatives of Islamic groups whose ultimate goal is our demise) and abroad (as he did during his recent trip to India), Giuliani said, “I do not believe-and I know this is a horrible thing to say-but I do not believe that the president loves America…”

While Guiliani’s critics seem to line up along party lines, two main considerations are noteworthy.

Hillary’s Top Aides Knew from First Minutes that Benghazi Was a Terrorist Attack, E-mails Disclose

Free Republic

From the very first moments of the terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her top aides were advised that the compound was under a terrorist attack. In fact, less than two hours into the attack, they were told that the al-Qaeda affiliate in Libya, Ansar al-Sharia, had claimed responsibility.

These revelations and others are disclosed by a trove of e-mails and other documents pried from the State Department by Judicial Watch in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. The FOIA litigation focuses on Mrs. Clinton’s involvement in the government actions before, during, and after the Benghazi attack, in which Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, was murdered by terrorists. Also killed in the attack were State Department information management officer Sean Smith, and two former Navy SEALs, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who were contract security employees and who had fought heroically, saving numerous American lives. At least ten other Americans were wounded, some quite seriously.
