Americans expect the U.S. military to protect us. Team Obama has a different priority.
As we document in our new book, See No Sharia, those in uniform are no longer allowed to be briefed about the true nature of our jihadist enemies and what motivates them. Even though such information is obviously essential to victory, for servicemen and women to provide – or even to receive – it can be a career-threatening offense.
A briefing last year to troops in Georgia obtained by Judicial Watch shows the sort of threat the Obama administration clearly thinks the armed forces must confront instead – namely that, “Our society attaches privilege to being white and male and heterosexual, regardless of your social class.”
Our military must be able to know the enemy and continue to reward quality in the ranks. Obama’s policies are breaking it and endangering us.

I often tell folks that when tolerance becomes a one-way street, it leads to cultural suicide. I have no problem respecting others, but it MUST be a two-way exchange. Recently, we learned of the U.S. ambassador in Indonesia who made the decision – or someone did – to change the 4th of July celebration at the embassy to 4th of June. This was done to respect Ramadan. Needless to say, the ambassador has forgotten that an embassy is sovereign U.S. territory and all festivities easily could have been done after sunset – you know, fireworks, hot dogs, hamburgers and such.
And now our men and women serving in the Middle East have received a reminder about respecting Ramadan. As reported in the Weekly Standard:
Even after everything Obama has done to the U.S. military, we can still kick your ass from here to China.
A senior Iranian military commander on Wednesday said the Islamic Republic would “welcome war with the U.S.” and “set fire to every military base from which a hostile U.S. plane takes off,” according to reports in Iran’s state-controlled media.
Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Commander Hossein Salami threatened the U.S. during a television interview aired on Tehran’s state-run television.
“We have prepared ourselves for the most dangerous scenarios and this is no big deal and is simple to digest for us; we welcome war with the U.S. as we do believe that it will be the scene for our success to display the real potentials of our power,” Salami was quoted as saying by the Fars News Agency.
The remarks came as Secretary of State John Kerry and several lawmakers met with Israeli leaders this week to discuss the Iranian threat.
Salami, according to Fars, “warned that Tehran will set fire to every military base from which a hostile US plane takes off for bombing Iran.”
“We warn their pilots that their first flight (to target Iran) will be their last one and no one will be allowed to go back safe and sound and they should call their flights as their last flight,” the IRGC leader was quoted as saying.
URGENT: New developments in the Bundy Ranch standoff. DHS insider reveals the Federal retreat was complete Psyop to study opposition to crush rebellion in next assault.

All of our lives are going to change in a drastic way, if this is true… From Doug Hagmann
At 1750 hours ET, I was contacted by my source within the Department of Homeland Security regarding the current situation at the Bundy Ranch. To put it bluntly, the people are being hoodwinked into believing that the situation is being resolved. It is not. It is a strategic de-escalation to fool the public. This source stated that the retreat of the BLM agents and the release of the cattle was actually crafted as a potential plan yesterday (Friday, 11 April 2014) based on the following:
1. A military assessment of satellite and drone surveillance imagery of the “patriot resistance. Drones under the control of the U.S. military were in use, taking real-time photographic images of not just the activity at the ranch, but “identifying the protesters, any arms and any supplies they might have or be carrying. “Mission accomplished.”
2. Real-time communication intercepts between patriots on-site and their off-site support;
3. Active monitoring of internet traffic regarding the coverage of events at ranch;
4. The monitoring of real-time video from the scene.
This source stated that a response by the patriot movement was anticipated, although exceeded their expectations. Although this was a real operation, they also ran this as a test case for future government operations once they saw the response. They were also actively managing the media, in some cases threatening to cut off White House access to anyone covering the event.
Despite this, the coverage by the alternative media began to create a public relations problem that was not easily managed. Note the lack of acknowledgment by the White House regarding this event. They are intentionally framing it as a state issue, despite the fact that all federal response has been and continues to be from the White House. There is a reason for this — a reason that has not been identified in any of the public reports to date. I will explain in further detail in a follow-up report on Sunday, after this source attends [redacted] to obtain more specific information about future federal operations. Regardless, according to this source, the government will take back ‘their land’ as they must to fulfill international obligations. It was never about grazing rights or anything other than (1) “securing clear title” to the land, and (2) further demonizing any patriotic resistance. It is my understanding, based on the information from this source, that it is a critical task to create a situation that will also advance their agenda of gun control and confiscation.

For several years now, many of us have been wondering what it will take to stop the anti-American, anti-freedom, lawless Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), his administration, and the commie weasels in Congress.
As we watch the in-your-face criminal actions of Obama and his minions (the list of which seems interminable), it is clear that members of the other two co-equal branches of the federal government are either in agreement with him or are too scared of the shadowy powers behind Obama to lift a finger against him. This strange, debilitating non-resistance to Obama can’t be based solely on the fear of being falsely accused of “racism,” so I conclude it is based either on agreement with Obama or fear of something much worse.
Elite U.S. troops were completely capable of saving Ambassador Chris Stevens during the Benghazi Consulate attacks on September 11, 2012. Elements of the highly specialized Combatant Commanders In-Extremis (CIF) units are always on alert, on forward deployment, ready to respond. Their job description is to hit the ground in 3 to 5 hours. CIF elements are ready to engage in active combat anywhere in their region, 3 to 5 hours after the call.
Leon Panetta, Secretary of Defense at the time, either misled the U.S. Congress or was incompetent. Panetta testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee on February 7, 2013 that the U.S. military could not have responded in less than 9 to 12 hours.
Obama’s first secretary of defense, Robert Gates, told CBS’s Face the Nation on May 12, 2013 that “[w]e don’t have a ready force standing by” in that region.
But we absolutely do “have a ready force standing by” to reach any trouble spot in a few hours. Insider reports previously revealed that CIF elements were training in Croatia and could have been in Benghazi in three and a half hours.
INTRANATIONAL SECURITY THREAT – A recently released video produced by a group of former and current intelligence and special forces military personnel explicitly confronts Barack Obama’s professional abilities as a president while demanding that he “shut the **** up” when it comes to military operational security and intelligence information.

NEW YORK, NY – Barack Obama did say transparency would be the “touchstone” of his administration, after all.
Little did anyone think that Obama’s “transparency” would mean his administration’s repeated disclosure of sensitive military intelligence to the enemies of the United States.
