Jerry Brown to Republican Presidential Candidates: Welcome, ‘Merchants of Destruction!’

Posted on September 16th, 2015

Scientific pronouncements global warmingEDITOR”S COMMENT: I thought this comment was on target: Moonbeam Brown the best response to your global warming crap is it does not exist. It is nothing more them a liberal money making scam that has never been proven . By the way I thought you idiots changed the name to climate change which we all know happens four times a year naturally.

By Bloomberg

As he struggles to bring under control devastating wildfires that he blames at least partly on global warming, California Governor Jerry Brown has an un- welcome message for the Republican presidential candidates gathering in his state for a debate Wednesday.

“I would challenge these Republican presidential candidates to speak to what is certainly one of the fundamental issues of our time,” Brown said in an interview. “They fancy themselves defenders of life but they actually are willing merchants of destruction. I would like to see them be honest about climate change.”

… In a March 2014 Gallup poll  climate change ranked as the 14th most important issue out of 15 surveyed, topping only race relations among issues about which survey respondents said they cared a “great deal.”  The Republican presidential candidates are equally non-alarmist.

Democratic and Republican presidential candidates have backed away from policies such as subsidizing solar and wind power because they are unpopular with the public, said Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity, the free-market group backed by the billionaire Koch brothers. Regardless of the rhetoric around climate change, candidates know better than to advocate policies that drive up energy prices and stifle economic growth in the name of minimizing global warming, Phillips said in a telephone interview.

California Will Give Free High School Diplomas To Kids Who Flunked Out

Posted on September 15th, 2015

WAIMH Red ArrowEDITOR’S COMMENT: It seems like almost every day brings another example of the political correctness in our society gone wild. It now seems like California will just give out high school diplomas for simply participating in the classes. This is a classic example of the liberal progressive agenda, where the schools keep the students uninformed and dumb, keep them on government welfare programs, and knowing that if they are most likely to vote, if they vote at all, for those will continue or increase their government entitlements. This is an abdication of responsibility on the part of the school boards and the Democratic political leaders. Frankly, I would not be surprised, if President Obama’s Secretary of Education notices this, likes the concept, and suggests extending this policy to cover the entire country.

By Blake Neff

The state of California is poised to award thousands of high school degrees to dropouts by passing a new law retroactively removing the requirement to pass a high school exit exam.

The California High School Exit Exam (CASHEE) was created in 2004, and is intended to make sure that students have a rudimentary grasp of English and mathematics before being awarded a high school diploma, and to counter the phenomenon of students receiving passing grades while learning almost nothing.

50 US Spies “Revolt” Exposing How Their Reports Are Cooked to Manipulate the Public about ISIS

Posted on September 11th, 2015

Why Wasn’t I Warned Obama ISIS from www.caglecartoons.com # 154396EDITOR’S COMMENT: Frankly, while this “revolt” is rather shocking, we really shouldn’t be that surprised, based upon President Obama’s past and current efforts to spin every detail to his advantage. If that can’t be done, then the issue is conveniently overlooked with the aid of his adoring media, or he will comment that he is not familiar with the relevant issue. Just always remember that almost everything spoken by this administration is either an exaggeration, a falsehood, or a lie. And, now we see that our supposedly independent military has also been infected with this effort to mislead by “cherry-picking” our intelligence reports!

By Jay Syrmopoulos

More than 50 U.S. military intelligence analysts operating out of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) have staged what has been called a ‘revolt’ by intelligence professionals. The revolt comes after announcing that their intelligence reports were being altered and manipulated to fit the public narrative that the U.S. is winning the battle against ISIS.

The analysts are assigned to U.S. CENTCOM, but are officially employed by the Defense Intelligence Agency, the intelligence branch of the Pentagon.

“The cancer was within the senior level of the intelligence command,” one defense official told The Daily Beast.

The disturbing revelations came after more than 50 intelligence analysts filed formal complaints, causing the Pentagon’s inspector general to open an investigation into the matter.

According to the report by The Daily Beast:

Two senior analysts at CENTCOM signed a written complaint sent to the Defense Department inspector general in July alleging that the reports, some of which were briefed to President Obama, portrayed the terror groups as weaker than the analysts believe they are. The reports were changed by CENTCOM higher-ups to adhere to the administration’s public line that the U.S. is winning the battle against ISIS and al Nusra, al Qaeda’s branch in Syria, the analysts claim.

More Than 90 Percent of Middle Eastern Refugees to U.S. on Food Stamps

Posted on September 11th, 2015

WAIMH Red ArrowBy Caroline May

More than 90 percent of recent refugees from Middle Eastern nations are on food stamps and nearly 70 percent receive cash assistance, according to government data.

According to Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) data highlighted by the immigration subcommittee staff of — chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest — in FY 2013, 91.4 percent of Middle Eastern refugees (accepted to the U.S. between 2008-2013) received food stamps, 73.1 percent were on Medicaid or Refugee Medical Assistance and 68.3 percent were on cash welfare.

The high welfare rates among Middle Eastern refugees comes as the Obama administration considers increasing the number of refugees — who are immediately eligible for public benefits — to the U.S., particularly Syrian refugees. Read More..

Obama Kept Key Iran Nuclear Deal Details from Congress, House Republicans Allege

Posted on September 10th, 2015

AlertEDITOR’S COMMENT: Finally, the House Republicans are trying to assert themselves on behalf of the American people, partly as a result of a ‘full-scale” revolt against John Boehner, as he was not planning to fight the Iran deal any longer. In other words, the leadership was willing to cave in again. Now, we have to hope that Senate Republican leader McConnell does not ‘wimp out’ in the face of heavy pressure from the White House. Even if these tactics don’t succeed, the Republican leadership needs to show conclusively that the favorable votes on this Obama Iran deal are all Democratic.

By Stephen Dinan and Anjali Shastry

GOP’s last-ditch effort to derail agreement could create legal hurdle for president.

House Republicans will attempt a last-ditch effort to derail the Iran nuclear agreement by asserting President Obama has withheld key details of the deal from Congress, meaning the 60-day period for Capitol Hill’s review hasn’t even begun, GOP lawmakers said Wednesday.

The move could create a legal hurdle for President Obama, who argues he has power to move ahead with lifting U.S. sanctions on Iran as of Sept. 17, when he deems the clock runs out on Congress‘ review period.

“Many of us feel this is a deeply flawed agreement. We think it’s going to endanger our national security, we think it’s going to endanger the security of our friends and allies in the region, and we’re just looking for any way that we can to derail this agreement,” said Rep. Chris Stewart, Utah Republican, emerging from a closed-door meeting of the House GOP where details were being hashed out. Read More..

Iran Deal: Khamenei Says Israel Destroyed in 25 Years

Posted on September 10th, 2015

WAIMH Red ArrowEDITOR’S COMMENT: Do these comments sound to you like the comments of someone that you would want to negotiate anything, never mind a disastrous nuclear weapons deal with? And, don’t ignore his comments that Iran will have nothing to with the “Great Satan’, the United States, in the future. Wasn’t the likelihood of future agreements and potential trade agreements with Iran a main reason for ‘reaching out’ to Iran in the beginning. Now, it looks like most, if not all, of the trade will go to other western countries, and not the U.S. Nice going, Mr. President. As I’ve mentioned many times, you really do have to wonder which country President Obama believes he is representing, if any!

By Times of Israel

Israel will not survive the next 25 years, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday, making a series of threatening remarks published online.

In a quote posted to Twitter by Khamenei’s official account, Khamenei addresses Israel, saying, “You will not see next 25 years,” and adds that the Jewish state will be hounded until it is destroyed.

The quote comes against a backdrop of a photograph apparently showing the Iranian leader walking on an Israeli flag painted on a sidewalk.

Khamenei’s statements also reaffirmed his view that the US is a “Great Satan” and that there would be no detente with Washington beyond the nuclear talks. Read More..

Harry Reid Confirms Senate Democrats Will Filibuster Iran Nuclear Deal

Posted on September 8th, 2015

RedArrowWAIMHlargerEDITOR’S COMMENT: When is the Republican leadership going to wake up, and actually act responsibly, and do what they were elected to do? In this issue, as significant as it is, the republicans should simply change the ‘rules’ regarding filibuster, in the same way that Harry Reid did, when he was in charge. For some idiotic reason, the Republican leadership has this quaint and outdated notion of ‘respect’ for existing Senates rules, and ranks this notion higher than its interests in protecting the country!

By Stephen Dinan

Democrats will try to mount a filibuster to block the Iran nuclear deal from even having to reach President Obama’s desk for a veto, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid signaled Saturday in a statement.

He and his party colleagues already have enough committed supporters that they would be able to sustain an Obama veto and allow the Iran deal to proceed, but a filibuster would be an even bigger coup, halting the issue earlier in the process and heading off a protracted — and potentially politically costly — veto fight.

A surge of support for Mr. Obama’s stance this week has put Democrats well over the 34 votes needed to guarantee upholding the veto, and they are now within striking distance of the 41 votes that would guarantee a filibuster, too.

The Iran debate is slated to begin Tuesday, as Congress returns from a long summer vacation. Read More..

Obama’s Obscene Drive to Avoid Any Senate Vote on the Iran Deal

Posted on September 3rd, 2015

Dealing from behind imageEDITOR’S COMMENT: What is the Republican establishment leadership waiting for? Or, are McConnell and Boehner simply going to give Obama what he wants, as they have so often done in the recent past. If any vote in congress requires changing the rules on ‘filibuster’, this one is it!

By The New York Post

Whether to approve the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran is the most important question to face Congress in years — yet the president wants to stop the Senate from even debating it.

He’s pushing Democrats to use the filibuster rule to stop the question from making it to the Senate floor — and Minority Leader Harry Reid’s rallying the votes to do it.

Of course, President Obama never wanted Congress to have a say here. But Congress voted itself an oversight role anyway — by 98-1 in the Senate.

Now Reid’s rounding up Democrats to derail the process they helped set up to “ensure the American people — through their elected representatives — a voice on any deal with Iran.” Read More..

ABC News 2009 Prediction of Global Climate Catastrophe in 2015 Slightly Off

Posted on September 3rd, 2015

Blown forecast global warmingEDITOR’S COMMENT: Funny how the mainstream media never seems to revisit some of its earlier stories or predictions.

By Rick Moran

Amidst stories of war, murder, and natural disasters, a pallate cleanser for you – an ABC News report from 2009 predicting climate armageddon in 2015.

Daily Caller:

ABC News ran a news special in 2009 called Earth 2100, a program warning its viewers about the dangers of climate change.

ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff says the show “puts participants in the future and asks them to report back about what it is like to live in this future world. The first stop is the year 2015.”

A Harvard University professor says, “We’re going to see more floods, more droughts, more wildfires.”

Are we reallly seeing “more” of those disasters? More compared to what? If we compare to 2009, that statement is probably true. But if you compare the frequency of those disasters to historical highs, not so much. Read More..

Officers’ Letter to Congress on Iran Deal Is Their Attempt to Warn Us

Posted on September 2nd, 2015

AlertEDITOR’S COMMENT: This is a most important commentary that reviews the letter that 190 retired U.S. flag officers issued to Congress and provides us with their thoughts and dire warnings about Obama’s Iran deal and our nuclear surrender. As such, this is another MUST READ commentary, and a copy should be sent to all your friends and relatives.

By James Lewis

“The Obama administration has a strategy. It is very simple. Any thinking American should be able to grasp it. It’s anti-American, anti-Western, it’s pro-Islamic, pro-Iranian, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood.” Admiral James Lyons (USN, ret.)

The most dangerous presidency in American history is now rushing to its climax.  This is the lethal moment that Bush and Cheney warned us about – the catastrophic moment when a fanatical Armageddon regime in Tehran will be guaranteed a path to nuclear weapons.  Some military experts are convinced they already have them.

The Bush administration made many mistakes, but it was absolutely on target about the danger of terrorists armed with nukes.  For rational actors, nuclear weapons are a last-ditch defense, because in a nuclear exchange, everybody loses.  Irrational and suicide-preaching regimes are different, just as Jim Jones was different from your Junior League Club.

Today, Obama actually wants to give the most destructive weapons in the world to Iran’s genocidal regime.

He has simply switched sides.

His actions are consistent with his support for al-Qaeda in Benghazi, with his half-brother Malik Obama’s status as a high Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood) official, and with his enabling of hostile infiltration of U.S. government agencies by jihadist ideologues. Read More..
