Obama Negotiates Israel’s Destruction

Iran nuclear missle

By Alan Caruba

The strangest thing about Obama’s efforts to achieve friendly relations with Iran, something he has tried to do since he first took office in 2009, is that Iran has made it abundantly clear since its Islamic revolution in 1979 that it hates America and, in tandem, Israel as well.

In an Iranian naval drill on February 25, Iran blew up a mock U.S. aircraft carrier near the entrance of the Persian Gulf. It was Read More »

The fat cats in Washington D.C. are living the high life, and they are doing it at your expense.  Over the past decade, there has been one area of the country which has experienced a massive economic boom.  Thanks to wildly out of control government spending, the Washington D.C. region is absolutely swimming in cash.  In fact, at this point the state of Maryland has the most millionaires per capita in the Read More »

By Ben Smith

Sen. Rand Paul is reviving his push to audit the Federal Reserve.

The Kentucky Republican and presumptive 2016 presidential candidate said he wants to bring several of the Fed’s monetary activities under congressional oversight.

In a statement, Paul said it was time to end the secrecy behind the Fed. He believes an audit is the best way to do it.

“[An] audit of the Fed will finally allow the American people to know exactly how their Read More »

DISTURBING: Obama “Very Interested” In Raising Taxes Through Executive Action – Townhall  …  “White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is ‘very interested’ in the idea of raising taxes through unitlateral executive action. ‘The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,’ Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action.”

“Sanders sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew Friday identifying a number of executive actions he believes the IRS could take, without any input from Congress, that would close loopholes currently used by corporations. In the past, IRS lawyers have been hesitant to use executive actions to raise significant amounts of revenue, but that same calculation has changed in other federal agencies since Obama became president.”

COMMENT: All part of his redistribution mindset and mission!

How Obama Aids Terrorist Recruiters – Newsmax  …  “America and the entire West are at war with jihadist terrorism and radical Islamism — on the battle fields of the Middle East with ISIS and al Qaeda but more importantly in coffee houses, the basements of mosques and on the internet for the hearts and minds of young people. Jihadists persuade them with utopian notions about building a more just society on religious foundations and lure them to revolutionary violence — either by taking up arms in the Middle East or committing terrorist acts at home. … Intellectuals on the left have long wedded the grievances of rIadical feminists and minorities with an unrelenting propaganda assault against private enterprise, capitalism and U.S. foreign policy, and elected politicians like Obama to effect radical change.”

At every opportunity, Obama appeals to the radical left, promising to redress injustices — even those long dead — and apologizes for western and American misdeeds. … Our governments and civilization cannot compete for their allegiance if our leaders are constantly pandering to false notions about the West’s guilt and culpability for all the misdeeds of humanity…. Quite simply, Obama’s words make the work of terrorist recruiters easier, and give aid and comfort to the enemy.”

Black Pastors Urge Congressional Black Caucus Not to Skip Netanyahu Speech – Washington Times  …  “The message from a dozen prominent black pastors this week to the Congressional Black Caucus was loud and clear: Don’t skip out on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyuhu’s speech. About two dozen House and Senate Democrats, most of them black caucus members, have said they will not attend Mr. Netanyahu’s speech Tuesday before a joint session of Congress, which one pastor described as a ‘slap in the face to the people of Israel.’That is a slap in the face to the people of Israel, and not only that, it’s a slap in the face to God. And not only that, it’s also a slap in the face of all Bible-believing African-American people in this country.'”

“‘Israel knows and understands Iran better than the rest of the world. This is not the time to involve ourselves in petty political maneuvering designed to embarrass our friend,’ said Pastor Stephen Broden of the Fair Park Bible Fellowship in Dallas. …We stand today to say that these congressmen do not speak for all black Christians. As Bible-believing people, we stand with Israel, and we urge our leaders to do the same.’ Pastor Carlton Smith of the Antioch Fellowship Assembly in Cleveland recounted how Jews had stood alongside black Americans in their fight for civil rights. They stood and marched with us in our struggle then, and we must stand with them in the face of their enemy now,’ Mr. Smith said.”

Obama’s Latest Claim That Keystone XL Oil ‘Bypasses the U.S.’ Earns Four Pinocchios – Washington Post  …   “President Obama, seeking to explain his veto of a bill that would have leapfrogged the approval process for the Keystone XL pipeline, in an interview with a North Dakota station repeated some false claims that had previously earned him Pinocchios. Yet he managed to make his statement even more misleading than before, suggesting the pipeline would have no benefit for American producers at all.”

“A report released in February by IHS Energy, which consults for energy companies, concluded that ‘Canadian crude making its way to the USGC [Gulf Coast] will likely be refined there, and most of the refined products are likely to be consumed in the United States.'”

The White House declined to provide an on-the-record defense of the president’s statement. That certainly suggests officials are unwilling to make a public case contradicting the State Department findings. When Obama first started making the claim that the crude oil in the Keystone pipeline would bypass the United States, we wavered between Three and Four Pinocchios and strongly suggested he take the time to review the State Department report. Clearly, the report remains unread.”

Obama Looking in a Mirror

By Aaron Goldstein

Of course he doesn’t love America. He loves himself.

I’m not sure why the Left is so aghast that Rudy Giuliani dared suggest that President Obama didn’t love America. The Left sure doesn’t.

How often has Bill Maher, a man who gave $1 million of his own money to assure Obama’s re-election, said America is a stupid country?

When Jonathan Gruber attributed the passage of Obamacare to the “stupidity” of the American voter, Maher Read More »

Netanyahu visit by Rick McKee, The Augusta Chronicle

By Matthew Continetti

The emerging nuclear deal with Iran is indefensible. The White House knows it. That is why President Obama does not want to subject an agreement to congressional approval, why critics of the deal are dismissed as warmongers, and why the president, his secretary of state, and his national security adviser have spent several weeks demonizing the prime minister of Israel for having the temerity to accept an invitation by the U.S. Congress to Read More »

Nanny State

By Monte Pelerin

The FCC action with respect to the internet is pure nanny state behavior. But it is more than that! It is tyranny!

What does it say about freedom and liberty when five people can, without review of any elected officials, completely alter the internet? What does it say about the operation of government when the Chairman of the FCC refuses to appear before Congress to discuss what he is proposing? Just who is running Read More »

Report: Obama Threatened to Shoot Down Israeli Jets as Part of Iran Strike – Israel National News  …   “The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran. Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack. The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.”

Al-Jarida quoted ‘well-placed’ sources as saying that Netanyahu, along with Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon, and then-Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, had decided to carry out airstrikes against Iran’s nuclear program after consultations with top security commanders. The sources added that Gantz and his commanders prepared the requested plan and that Israeli fighter jets trained for several weeks in order to make sure the plans would work successfully. Israeli fighter jets reportedly even carried out experimental flights in Iran’s airspace after they managed to break through radars.”

Treasury Used Unauthorized $3 Billion to Pay for Obamacare and Won’t Explain – Washington Examiner  …   “The U.S. Treasury Department has rebuffed a request by House Ways and Means Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R- Wis., to explain $3 billion in payments that were made to health insurers even though Congress never authorized the spending through annual appropriations. At issue are payments to insurers known as cost-sharing subsidies. These payments come about because President Obama’s healthcare law forces insurers to limit out-of-pocket costs for certain low income individuals by capping consumer expenses, such as deductibles and co-payments, in insurance policies. In exchange for capping these charges, insurers are supposed to receive compensation.”

What’s tricky is that Congress never authorized any money to make such payments to insurers in its annual appropriations, but the Department of Health and Human Services, with the cooperation of the U.S. Treasury, made them anyway…. The argument that annual appropriations are required to make payments is also backed up by a report from the Congressional Research Service, which has differentiated between the tax credit subsidies that Obamacare provides to individuals to help them purchase insurance, and the cost-sharing payments to insurers.”

Sharpton Back at White House for 62nd Meeting with Obama – Newsmax  … “For at least the 62nd time since 2009, the Rev. Al Sharpton has crossed the threshold of the White House to meet with President Barack Obama. On Thursday, Sharpton was a guest of honor, along with 17 other civil rights leaders, for Obama ‘to provide an update on the administration’s priorities as described in the State of the Union,’ the White House stated, the Weekly Standard reported.”

Sharpton was welcomed, despite owing an estimated $4.5 million in state and federal taxes, according to the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC). ‘Because he is a friend of many powerful people, including President Obama, the IRS and the State of New York have seemed willing to give him a free pass, especially given the high propensity of his admirers to riot,’ the NLPC said of Sharpton.”

A Thirsty, Violent World – New Yorker  …  “It is not that we are actually running out of water, because water never technically disappears. When it leaves one place, it goes somewhere else, and the amount of freshwater on earth has not changed significantly for millions of years. But the number of people on the planet has grown exponentially; in just the past century, the population has tripled, and water use has grown sixfold. More than that, we have polluted much of what remains readily available.”

“There are ways to replace oil, gas, and coal, though we won’t do that unless economic necessity demands it. But there isn’t a tidy and synthetic invention to replace water. Conservation would help immensely, as would a more rational use of agricultural land—irrigation today consumes seventy per cent of all freshwater. … The result of continued inaction is clear. Development experts, who rarely agree on much, all agree that water wars are on the horizon. That would be nothing new for humanity.”
