One of the few interesting items in the New York Times’ whitewash of Hillary and Obama’s illegal Libyan war is the confirmation of weapons shipments.
Obama ultimately took her side, according to the administration officials who described the debate. After he signed a secret document called a presidential finding, approving a covert operation, a list of approved weaponry was drawn up. The shipments arranged by the United States and other Western countries generally arrived through the port of Benghazi and airports in eastern Libya, a Libyan rebel commander said.
“Humvees, counterbattery radar, TOW missiles was the highest end we talked about,” one State Department official recalled. “We were definitely giving them lethal assistance. We’d crossed that line.”
The story blames the problem on Qatar aiding Jihadists and Obama’s unwillingness to defy the terror oil state. But the claim that we had to arm terrorists to fight Qatar’s arming of terrorists doesn’t hold up too well. Furthermore we already know that US forces were told to turn a blind eye to Qatar’s weapons shipments. We could have blocked them instead.
The story mentions a competition between Qatar and the UAE over arming the locals, but fails to clarify that Qatar was arming straight Jihadists, while the UAE had taken an anti-Islamist line.
It also fails to clarify that Qatar was backing the Muslim Brotherhood. Just like Hillary and Obama.
Our US Border Fence
A secret government report leaked to a CBS news local station advised that terrorists “are almost certainly aware” of the US-Mexico’s border vulnerability to illegal entry. Terrorists and nationals from terrorist nations are being caught more and more often on our southern border. Obama is most definitely aware of this.
WSBTV Channel Two Action News reporter Aaron Diamont traveled to Santa Theresa, New Mexico where the border fence ends to see what is real and what is not. It’s only 8 miles west of El Paso where Border Patrol keeps vigilant watch.
There is no fence where the border fence ends, just a small 5 foot buffer, no cameras and only an occasional border agent. There are endless miles of spots where people can pour through. When Marco Rubio talks about building 700 miles of fence, it’s hardly enough.
In over just the last three years, agents have captured more than a half-million people from countries other than Mexico along our southern border, including a growing number of special interest aliens, or SIAs, from terrorist nations like Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Pakistan and Yemen, WSBTV reported.
“Terrorists can exploit, and their supporters can exploit, a porous border,” Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw told Diamant in Austin, Texas.
Family Security Matters
by KEVIN SAMOLSKY
Today, Afghani and Israeli infrastructure were targeted by outside forces. In Afghanistan, the Taliban blew up a major electricity pylon in Dand-e-Shahabuddin area knocking out power to the entire region. In Israel, the Public Utility Authority was the target of one of the country’s largest cyber attacks in history.
Afghanistan and Israel will be able to recover from the recent attacks, but these events illustrate how susceptible a nation’s infrastructure can be. The Taliban were able to easily knock out power to an entire region without any high tech equipment, while the entire nation of Israel would have been effected if the attack was not stopped.
This is not the first, and certainly not the last, time an outside force has attacked a nation’s grid.
Well Mr. Speaker the charade is over. Obama has received just what he wanted and you and Mitch helped him. You can both now get back in line, knee pads in hand, ready to kiss the bony rear of your leader and ask, “What do you want next, Sire?”
A real man once called some of our foes the, “Axis of Evil.” Well I see another axis right here in what is left of America. Between you and McConnell and Obama you are destroying the America you grew up in and it apparently isn’t going to stop. A more ineffective Congress hasn’t been seen in my lifetime (I am 79). Committee meeting after committee and no one has resolved one thing yet, IN SIX YEARS!
The House, led by what has turned out to be led by one of the most two-faced people in Washington, has just turned this country over to illegals, terrorists, and more welfare recipients. I can’t be sure but I believe it was on purpose to appease your donors. This certainly not the actions of any American that believes in this country. I am beginning to think that not only is Obama not American but the so-called leaders we have elected are of the same philosophy. What but any stretch of the imagination can the bill you just passed be good for this country.
This Republican Party has turned into a party of little girls. You are so afraid that someone will say something bad about you that you are willing to sell the CITIZENS of this country down the river. So afraid that you are aiding the Democrats in destroying America daily.
Democrats may be Socialist but I have to give them credit for sticking to what they believe in. Unlike Republicans that put on the charade of doing the right thing only to sell the farm when it comes to actually accomplishing the right thing.
In case you missed it this is one teed off CITIZEN that has given up on hoping that the party I once belonged to for fifty years will in fact do what the CITIZENS want.
The Economic Collapse
Do you know what an “extremist” is? In the wake of the horrible terror attacks on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in France, Barack Obama is speaking very boldly about the need to win the war against “extremists”, and he has announced plans to host a major global summit on “extremism” next month. And on the surface that sounds great. But precisely how are we supposed to determine whether someone is an “extremist” or not? What criteria should we use? As you will see below, your definition of an “extremist” may be far, far different from the definition that Barack Obama is using. When you do a Google search, you will find that an “extremist” is defined as “a person who holds extreme or fanatical political or religious views, especially one who resorts to or advocates extreme action.” According to Wikipedia, “extremism” is “an ideology (particularly in politics or religion), considered to be far outside the mainstream attitudes of a society or to violate common moral standards. Extremism can take many forms, including political, religious and economic.” Please notice that neither of those definitions uses the word violence. In this day and age, you can be considered an “extremist” simply based on what you believe, and as you will see later in this article there are now tens of millions of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and “potential terrorists” according to official U.S. government documents.
When you use the word “extremist”, you may have in your mind a picture of ISIS fighters or the terrorists from the Charlie Hebdo massacre.
But for elitists such as Barack Obama, the word “extremist” has a much broader meaning. In recent years, it has become a code word for those that do not have an “enlightened” view of the world. If your views on politics, religion or social issues are extremely different from the liberal, progressive views of “the mainstream” (as defined by the mainstream media and by “mainstream” politicians such as Barack Obama), then they consider you to be an extremist.
Early in the presidency of George W. Bush, we were told that Islamic terrorists were the enemy. And so most of the country got behind the idea of the War on Terrorism. But over the years that has morphed into a War on Extremism. In fact, the Obama administration has gone so far as to remove almost all references to Islam from government terror training materials…
It has been promised, and confirmed by the administration, that President Obama intends to bypass Congress and take “Executive action” to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, including the criminals and terrorists among them.
But now sheriffs around the country are speaking up, issuing a dire warning about the likely results of a blanket amnesty granted by Obama. (H/T MRCTV)
They are warning of the coming increase in crime, disease, and terrorism, should Obama grant amnesty. They also they believe Obama’s amnesty will encourage more criminals and terrorists to join the millions of illegal immigrants already flooding across our porous southern border.
Of all the foolish lies that have been excreted by the Obama Administration, a recent remark by Jeh Johnson, the left-wing fundraiser now in charge of our security, takes the prize as the most staggeringly moronic:
“From my homeland security perspective, I want people who are living in this country undocumented to come forward, to get on the books, and subject themselves to a background check so that I can know who they are and whether it’s the current DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program or a path to citizenship – whether it’s deferred action or earned path to citizenship. From my homeland security perspective, I want people to come forward.”
So that’s why Johnson hasn’t lifted a finger to secure the border, despite the escalating terror threats from the Islamic State and al Qaeda. Once the election is over and Obama declares amnesty, the dozens if not hundreds of terrorists who have been taking advantage of the undefended border to sneak into the country will turn themselves in to the authorities.
Seeing is believing:
That he made this clown Secretary of Homeland Security tells you all you need to know regarding Obama’s feelings for this country.
