Obama Removes TPP’s Anti-Slavery Clause, Then Attacks Confederate Flag As “Symbol Of Slavery”

By: Kit Daniels | Infowars.com

Hypocrisy: Obama defends slavery, then attacks rebel flag for ties to slavery.

Right before he publicly attacked the Confederate flag as a “symbol of slavery,” President Obama quietly removed an anti-slavery provision from the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement.

“The provision, which bars countries that engage in slavery from being part of major trade deals with the U.S., was written by Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.),” the Huffington Post reported in May. “At the insistence of the White House, Menendez agreed to modify his language to say that as long as a country is taking ‘concrete’ steps toward reducing human trafficking and forced labor, it can be part of a trade deal.”

“Under the original language, the country that would be excluded from the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership pact is Malaysia.”

Malaysia is a major hub for human trafficking in Southeast Asia, with enslaved men, women, and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking, according to the State Dept.

“Why, in the year 2015, is the White House teaming up with Republican leaders essentially to defend the practice of slavery?” The Huffington Post added.

It was only a month later that President Obama attacked the Confederate flag as a “symbol of slavery.”

“[Removing the flag] would not be an insult to the valor of Confederate soldiers; it would simply be an acknowledgment that the cause for which they fought — the cause of slavery — was wrong,” he said during a June 26 eulogy in Charleston, S.C.

In other words, Obama defended slavery when it benefitted the TPP, but then attacked the Confederate flag for its historic link to slavery because it was politically expedient.

 

Obama DOJ In $29 Million Charleston Shooting Payout

charleston-victims

On the late afternoon of Friday June 19 the Obama Justice Department led by new Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced it will “fast track” $29 million to victim families of the June 17 shooting at the Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston South Carolina, Reuters reports. The exorbitant payout amounts to over $3.2 million per family.

As widely reported in corporate news media, a prominent victim of the tragic shooting was career South Carolina political leader and Democratic Party operative Senator Clementa Pinckney. Pinckney was also pastor of the AME Church, and alongside Pickney four of the slain–Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Depayne Middleton-Doctor, and Daniel Simmons Sr,–were AME reverends and officers.

“The massive Gothic structure” housing Charleston’s AME Church “suffers from severe structural deterioration resulting primarily from termite infestation” Church administrators were thus in dire need of funds for such repairs, the South Carolina Department of Archives and History observed in 2014.

DOJ spokesman Kevin Lewis stated that the funds are intended to “help families of victims of the mass murder of nine churchgoers at a historic black church in Charleston.”

An unknown portion of the money will be sent under the US national Crime Victim Assistance Formula Grant program, and may be used to provide services to the shooting victims’  families, the DOJ’s Lewis said.

The tragic church shooting took place on the same day Lynch was officially sworn in to office as the nation’s top law enforcement officer.

Between June 15 and 19, 2015 the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Charleston was conducting The Active Shooter Threat Instructor Training Program, “designed to provide a field training agent or officer with high quality training and instill the analytical knowledge, skills and attitudes needed for the highest proficiency in this specialized field,” the course description reads. “The course takes Active Shooter Threat Tactics Training to the next level by emphasizing leadership, teach backs, and adult learning as well as the traditional technical skills needed by field training officers and special agents.”

In the wake of the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre event overseen by the Department of Homeland Security Eric Holder’s DOJ funneled at least 9 million in federal money via the DOJ to the Newtown community for alleged services to victims’ families and the “trauma” experienced by first responders (e.g. here, here and here).

Such funding bolstered an unprecedented $50 million allocated by Connecticut Governor Dannell Malloy for the construction of a new Sandy Hook Elementary School contingent upon the leveling of the then-existing structure. Further, tens of millions were generated through a “Sandy Hook Charity Industry“–a vast array of independent charities purportedly soliciting funds on behalf of the families. The population of Newtown is 1,977, according to 2013 statistics.

Illegal Immigration Nightmare: Obama Has Been Releasing 1000s Of Convicted Criminals Back Into Our Communities

illegal immigration

Why has Barack Obama been releasing thousands of illegal immigrants that have been convicted of crimes back on to the streets of our cities?  According to U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley, more than 36,000 were released from custody in Fiscal Year 2013 alone.  These individuals were actually convicted of committing crimes, and many of them went on to commit new crimes once they were released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  In fact, Senator Grassley says that 121 of the criminals that were released during Fiscal Year 2013 were subsequently charged with committing murder.  That means that more than 100 American citizens are now dead because of Obama’s foolish policies.  Why is Obama doing this?  He knows that one out of every five illegal immigrants has a criminal record, and he knows that many of these convicted criminals that he is releasing will go on to commit new crimes.  What possible justification could Obama have for doing this to our communities?

When I first heard that more than 36,000 convicted criminals had been released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement during Fiscal Year 2013 alone, I thought that it must be a mistake.  So I started digging around, and I found out that it was true.  The following comes directly from the official website of U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Immigration and the National Interest Subcommittee Chairman Jeff Sessions and Judiciary Committee member Jeff Flake are asking for more information surrounding cases in which foreign nationals with criminal records facing deportation were released from custody and went on to commit new crimes. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently confirmed that 121 convicted criminals are now charged with homicide after being released from government custody instead of being deported. ICE also disclosed that 36,007 criminals were released from its custody in Fiscal Year 2013, and 1,000 of them have since been convicted again of additional crimes. Of those repeat offenders, 156 were released from ICE custody a second time, instead of being deported.

To me, there are either two options.  Either this is an example of incompetence that is off the scale, or this is being done on purpose.

And we are not just talking about small crimes.  Thousands of these criminals have actually been convicted of sex crimes.  And when they are released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, nobody is even making sure that they register as sex offenders.  So they are just roaming around out there, and many of them have gone on to commit absolutely horrifying crimes against U.S. citizens

Immigration officials tried to deport Luis-Leyva Vargas, 47, to Cuba after he served three years in a Florida prison for unlawful sex with a teen. In 2008, officials released him. Two years later, he kidnapped an 18-year-old in Rockingham County, Va., at knifepoint and raped her. Now he is serving a 55-year prison sentence.

Felix Rodriguez, a 67-year-old sex offender convicted of raping children as young as 4 in the 1990s, was freed in 2009, also because Cuba would not take him back. Months later, he fatally shot his girlfriend in Kansas City. He pleaded guilty and is serving 10 years in a Missouri prison.

Andrew Rui Stanley, convicted in 2000 of multiple counts of sodomizing a child when Stanley was 14, was released in 2009 after Brazil failed to provide a passport needed to send him home. For the next two years, he viciously abused three children in St. Louis and now, at age 31, will be in prison for the rest of his life.

This kind of thing is happening time after time after time, and yet nothing is being done about it.

Instead, many cities across America have actually set up “welcoming committees” for illegal immigrants that are designed to help them “adjust to life here in the United States”.  The following is an excerpt from an article by Kit Daniels

Dozens of cities across America are organizing “welcoming committees” to help illegals “adjust to life here in the United States.”

The cities are partnering with a group called “Welcoming America” which helps illegals find employment and housing while “helping people who were born in this country understand and appreciate their new neighbors.”

On Monday, the group worked with the Austin, Texas, Commission on Immigrant Affairs to organize a “Welcoming City Summit” with speeches on “executive action and the future potential of immigration reform” and “career pathways for new Americans.”

“The purpose of the Austin Welcoming City Summit is to convene community stakeholders to network, explore the ‘Welcoming City’ concept as it exists nationwide, learn about recognized best practices in immigrant integration and inform Austin’s own Welcoming City vision,” the summit’s registration page states.

“Welcoming America” touts itself as “grassroots” but is in fact supported by President Obama, the United Nations, the Clinton Global Initiative, the Carnegie Foundation and the German Marshall Fund.

Have we gone insane?

When we roll out the red carpet for those that are coming into this country illegally, word spreads like wildfire and it just encourages even more people to come here illegally.

As I have said so many times before, I believe that America will always need a certain level of immigration.  We are a nation of immigrants, and this nation was built by immigrants.  But it is absolutely imperative that we make everyone come in through the front door.  Instead, we have made it nearly impossible to come in through the front door while leaving the back door wide open.  As a result, a flood of criminals, gang members, drug traffickers and welfare parasites has come rushing in.

Today, the number of people that enter Texas illegally is greater than the number of babies being born to citizens of that state.  And those illegal immigrants commit a lot of crime.  According to Texas state Senator Dan Patrick, illegal immigrants were charged with nearly half a million crimes in his state during one recent four year time period. And he says that there are “at least 100,000 illegal immigrant gang members” living inside the state of Texas right now…

Hours before Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced he would send National Guard troops to the border, Texas state Senator Dan Patrick said there are at least 100,000 illegal immigrant gang members in the state.

On Monday’s The Laura Ingraham Show, Patrick, who is also the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, said from 2008 to 2012, 143,000 illegal immigrant criminals were arrested and jailed in Texas. He said these were “hardened criminals, gang members, and other criminals that we identified as being in Texas illegally.”

We charged them with 447,000 crimes, a half-million crimes in four years, just in Texas, including over 5,000 rapes and 2,000 murders,” Patrick said. “We estimate we have 100,000 gang members here illegally.”

Are you starting to get the picture?

Thousands upon thousands of Americans are being raped and murdered because of our absolutely insane immigration policies.

At this point, our immigration policies are so “politically correct” that border patrol agents cannot even turn away minors with known gang affiliations

Border Patrol officials struggling to keep up with the increasing number of minors illegally crossing the Mexican border are not turning away persons with known gang affiliations. Chris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 in the Rio Grande Valley, explained that a Border Patrol agent he represents helped reunite a teenage gang member with his family in the United States. Cabrera notes the young member of Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), a transnational criminal gang, had no criminal record in the U.S., but asks, “If he’s a confirmed gang member in his own country, why are we letting him in here?”

“I’ve heard people come in and say, ‘You’re going to let me go, just like you let my mother go, just like you let my sister go. You’re going to let me go as well, and the government’s going to take care of us,’” Cabrera says. “Until we start mandatory detentions, mandatory removals, I don’t think anything is going to change. As a matter of fact, I think it’s going to get worse.”

Art Del Cueto, president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 in Tucson, says agents who recognize the gang-affiliated tattoos of minors crossing the border must treat them the same as anybody else. He says these people are afforded the same rights provided to anyone crossing the border.

Like I stated earlier, either we are witnessing extreme incompetence or this is being done on purpose.

This is not a complicated political issue.

We don’t want drug dealers, rapists and murderers coming to live in our country.

Instead, we want people that are willing to come in, work hard and live by our laws.

The only way to control who is coming in is by making everyone come in through the front door.

If we continue to do things the way that we have been doing them, communities all over the country will continue to be systematically destroyed.

Obama Bombs Libya

nato_libya

Attacking other nations directly or indirectly posing no threat to America is longstanding US policy. Obama is the latest in a long line of warrior US presidents. He exceeds the worst of his predecessors. He’s a war criminal multiple times over.

America’s imperial agenda is lawless by any standard. It includes a sordid history of bombings, invasions, occupations, coups, assassinations, and other destabilizing activities aimed at making the world safe for monied interests – in blatant violation of core international law.

Since WW II, dozens of victimized countries include North Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Cuba, Indonesia, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Panama, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Pakistan (AfPak), Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Ukraine, Somalia, Palestine partnered with Israel, and on Sunday Libya again.

Reuters reported Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren announcing the following:

“Last night, the US military conducted a counterterrorism strike against an Al-Qaeda-associated terrorist in Libya. We are assessing the results of the operation and will provide additional information as and when appropriate.”

It’s unclear where the strike took place or what it accomplished. Allegedly senior Al Qaeda commander Mokhtar Belmokhtar was targeted.

Libya’s US-installed stooge regime in Tobruk, outside the rival Islamist Tripoli government, claimed he was killed. Previous reports of his death proved false. A Tobruk statement said:

“The Libyan government announces that American planes undertook action that resulted in the death of the wanted terrorist Mokhtar Belmokhtar and a number of Libyans belonging to one of the terrorist groups in Eastern Libya, after consultation with the Libyan interim government to take action on terrorist leadership present on Libyan soil.”

Washington’s National Counterterrorism Center says he was a senior Al Qaeda Saharan branch commander before establishing his own “Signed-in-Blood Battalion.”

An Algerian court sentenced him to death in absentia twice. It blamed him for a 2007 attack and siege on a gas facility, resulting in the death of 38 hostages, including three US citizens. A second sentence followed a 2008 incident.

Belmokhtar’s militant roots trace from his anti-Soviet 1980s Afghanistan Mujahideen days. He returned to Algeria in the 1990s battle-scared from shrapnel wounds, including the loss of one eye. He operated in Mali and Libya.

CIA sources say they tracked him since the 1990s. He was known as MBM (his initials), Laaouar (the one-eyed), the Prince, and Abu Khaled.

The New York Times said unnamed US officials “confirmed” Belmokhtar was Sunday’s airstrike target – “carried out by multiple American F-15E fighter jets.”

“It was a strike on an extremist leadership target whom we believed posed a threat against American and Western interests” the official said.

So far no forensic evidence proves his death. Al Qaeda and similar groups are used strategically as both US allies and enemies.

The attack was America’s first since Obama’s 2011 Libya aggression leading to Gaddafi’s ouster and murder. Months of naked aggression turned Libya into a cauldron of violence, instability, chaos and human misery.

On April 15, 1986, Ronald Reagan’s Operation El Dorado Canyon bombing failed to kill Gaddafi. His infant daughter was killed when his compound was attacked. So were over 100 other civilians. Dozens were wounded, including two of Gaddafi’s young sons.

The French, Swiss, Romanian and Iranian embassies were damaged. So were Japanese and Austrian diplomatic residences.

Dozens of residential buildings were damaged or destroyed. Libya’s Central Hospital reported up to 100 people needing treatment for serious injuries, including infants.

War didn’t follow. Does Obama have another one in mind now?

American Pharoah: What A Perfect Description For The Guy In The White House

obama pharoah

A horse named “American Pharoah” just won the Triple Crown.  Is this some sort of a sign for America?  The office of the presidency was greatly strengthened under previous administrations, but now Barack Obama has grabbed an unprecedented amount of power for himself.  In this article, I am going to focus on immigration, but Obama’s power grab is certainly not limited to this area.  And as I have written about previously, if there is some sort of major “national emergency” over the next year or so, the legal framework has already been created for Obama to use his “emergency powers” to take total control of virtually everything.  So is comparing Obama to the pharoahs of ancient Egypt unfair?  I don’t think so at all.  He is certainly acting as if he would like the powers of a dictator, his policies in the Middle East would make the pharoahs proud, and without a doubt Obama loves the adoration and worship of his fans.  In my opinion, he is the closest thing to a pharoah that the United States has ever seen.

Just consider Obama’s approach to immigration.  The laws of our land require him to protect our borders, but he has left them wide open and has openly encouraged illegal immigration because that is what he decided was best.  He also attempted to use his “executive powers” to grant amnesty to millions upon millions of immigrants that were in this country illegally.  Fortunately, that action has been blocked in the courts (at least for now), but Obama says that he is going to keep trying to do everything he can to “bring them out of the shadows”.

Personally, I am someone that believes that the United States will always need a certain level of legal immigration.  But the key word there is “legal”.  It is absolutely imperative that we require everyone to come in by the front door, so that we can weed out those that would be damaging to our society.  But instead of adopting a system that makes sense, we have left the back door wide open while making it extremely challenging to come in through the front door.  As a result, we have seen an endless flow of gang members, drug dealers, serial criminals, welfare parasites and political radicals enter this country illegally.  We have made it really easy for the “bad guys” to come in, but extraordinarily difficult for the “good guys” to move here.  What we are doing does not make any sense at all.

And thanks to our foolishness and the refusal of recent presidential administrations to enforce the law, all of this immigration has fundamentally altered the employment picture in this nation.  According to the latest numbers, nearly all of the job gains that the U.S. economy has experienced since 2007 have gone to foreign born workers

Assuming, the Household and Establishment surveys were congruent, this would mean that there was just 1K native-born workers added in May of the total 280K jobs added.

Alternatively, assuming the series, which is not seasonally adjusted, was indicative of seasonally adjusted data, then the 272K increase in total Household Survey civilian employment in May would imply a decline of 7K native-born workers offset by the increase of 279K “foreign borns.”

But while all of these comparisons are apples to oranges, using the BLS’ own Native-Born series, also presented on an unadjusted basis, we find the following stunner: since the start of the Second Great Depression, the US has added 2.3 million “foreign-born” workers, offset by just 727K “native-born”.

Foreign-Born-vs_-Native-Born-460x311

This means that the “recovery” has almost entirely benefited foreign-born workers, to the tune of 3 to 1 relative to native-born Americans!

It is getting to the point where we have a national epidemic on our hands.  According to one recent study, nearly one out of every 10 workers in the entire state of California is here illegally.  Imagine how much easier it would be to get a job in that state if the illegal workers were not part of the equation.

And of course it isn’t just employment that we need to be concerned about.  Thanks to unchecked illegal immigration, there are now 1.4 million gang members living in our cities, and these gang members often commit crimes that are absolutely horrific.  For example, the following is from an article about a crime that was recently committed by members of MS-13

Three teenage reputed members of the MS-13 street gang were ordered held without bail Friday on charges they forced a 16-year-old into a wooded area of a Long Island golf course, where two of them took turns raping her while the third stood as a lookout.

This is one of the most brutal, heinous crimes that I have seen in a long, long time,’ Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota said at a news conference following the suspects’ arraignments.

‘This poor young woman is so lucky that, quite frankly, that she is alive. These are vicious young men, vicious young men and what they did to her was absolutely terrible.’

If Barack Obama had protected our borders like he should have, those members of MS-13 would have never gotten into this country and they never would have raped that girl.

But instead of admitting that what he has done has been wrong, Pharoah Obama is doubling down on his current approach.  He insists that leaving the border wide open is “the right thing to do”, and he pledges to “bring more undocumented immigrants out of the shadows”.  The following comes from the Examiner

After executive amnesty was blocked in the courts and in the House the last two days, President Obama used his weekly radio address to ridicule House Republicans for blocking a vote on immigration reform, while promising that he would keep up the fight for undocumented immigrants.

“I’m going to keep doing everything I can to make our immigration system more just and more fair,” Obama said. “Last fall, I took action to provide more resources for border security; focus enforcement on the real threats to our security; modernize the legal immigration system for workers, employers and students; and bring more undocumented immigrants out of the shadows so they can get right with the law.”

“Some folks are still fighting against these actions,” Obama said, without directly naming the legal hurdles his executive actions face. “I’m going to keep fighting for them. Because the law is on our side. It’s the right thing to do. And it will make America stronger.”

And if Obama has his way, this is only just the beginning.

I have previously written about the devastating impact that the Trans-Pacific Partnership will have on our economy, but did you know that this secret new treaty that Obama is negotiating will also allow for the free flow of people within the Asia-Pacific region?  The following comes from WND

The European Union was founded on “four freedoms”: the free flow of people, goods, money and services among members. We learned at a recent White House press conference the Trans-Pacific Partnership will ensure “people, goods and money will flow freely within the Asia Pacific region.”

So what does that mean?

Will immigrants be able to move around the nations that are involved in the Trans-Pacific Partnership as freely as they do in the European Union today?  Mexico is one of the countries that will be a part of this new treaty.  Does that mean that people will now “flow freely” between our two nations?

We have seen it time and time again – once Obama is blocked one way, he just comes back and tries to advance his agenda another way.  When he promised to “fundamentally transform” this country, I don’t think that most people had any idea of what we would really be in for.

At this point, many regard Barack Obama as a “lame duck” president that is on his way out.

I don’t see it like that at all.  In fact, I believe that the most tumultuous time of Obama’s presidency is still to come.

Do you agree?  Tell us what you think the remainder of Obama’s time in the White House will look like by leaving a comment below…

Obama Declares Himself President For Life: The End Of The 22nd Amendment

dictator obama
By: Brooks Agnew |

I couldn’t believe it at first, either. How could any sitting president hope to sidestep the 22th Amendment placing term limits on the office of the presidency? Adopted on February 27th, 1951, this Amendment says:

“No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once.”

When George Washington was elected for his second term, it was clear that the people of America wanted him to stay there for life. He refused, voluntarily limiting himself to two terms to save America from the tyranny of living under a king. Most of the founding fathers escaped the British Empire and successfully rebelled against the royal family to form America. Their greatest fear was that a charismatic man would be elected to the office of president and never step down.

Every successive president followed that solemn tradition until Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Although he was nearly an invalid at the end of his second term, the Soviet power brokers that had thoroughly infiltrated the administration, and most of the bureaucracies, wanted to retain their power and continue to hold Eastern Europe as long as possible. The frail but crafty Harry Hopkins sent American military secrets, including the atomic bomb, to the Soviets. Roosevelt was kept alive through his third term and managed to win a fourth term, whereupon he died on April 12th, 1945. While convalescing at his “little white house” in Warm Springs, Georgia, he had a sudden cerebral hemorrhage and was dead within minutes.

Almost two years later on March 21st, 1947, the 22nd Amendment was passed by Congress to prevent any other president from serving more than two terms.

Now, it goes without saying that our news cycle moves fast. Our world moves so fast, that you can get behind by taking a three month vacation from research. People elected to Congress have to begin campaigning as soon as they are elected, because two years comes so fast that even a week without fundraising can cost you the election.

The power of the Washington D.C. crime syndicate is like being asked to work for two years in a gold mine. You can work all day, and then you are allowed to take home all you can carry in one hand. An elected official can arrive in Washington nearly penniless, and within one or two short terms can be worth millions. The legal insider trading alone is worth never leaving office.

In 1933, another government was formed inside Washington. Using the cataclysmic conditions of the Stock Market crash of 1929 as the main selling point, it was welcomed like cold milk to people eating dry chocolate cookies. History shows us that World War I was actually paused while bankers and industrialists swept enormous profits from the table during this period of global capital extraction. It resumed in 1939, under World War Part II, when Hitler’s funding by top world banks and U.S. investors was in position.

The soviets wanted Eastern Europe out of the deal and by invading Washington they were able to supply a prefabricated government capable of buying votes by the millions. It was run by presidential ministers known as secretaries, who were called cabinet members by the president. They were not elected, but rather hand chosen by the president and passed off by the Senate during a process called advice and consent. This is a mutual hand washing ceremony where the Party in power grants approval to the president’s choices for federal judges and ministers.

Within three years, this new government had Americans hooked. Within 70 years, the careful process of engineered litigation and enforcement gave the president the power to usurp the constitution and force the Patriot Act into place, dissolving the separation of powers. Still, the system needed a special president. It needed someone who would tell the world what it wanted to hear, while grinding human liberty into gravel to be trodden under foot by armies of presidential enforcers.

Barack Hussein Obama is that president. He has ruled by law and executive orders, fundamentally changing America publically into the oligarchy it has been for decades behind the scenes. Global corporations staff and rule the departments, bureaus, administrations, and agencies that collect and spend all the money you have earned, that of your children, and that of your grandchildren. In January of 2013, Jose Serrano reintroduced a bill to abolish the 22nd amendment. It has been introduced each year since, to keep it current on the books. Outrageous, you say? Impossible? I used to think so as well.
But that was before Obama stood before the cameras of the world and tore the Constitution into pieces strip by strip to rousing applause. Just this week, he again ostentatiously ignored the separation of powers between the Supreme Court and the Presidency. There is only one thing standing in his way of accomplishing his goal. Hillary.

The Obama master strategist, Valerie Jarrett, does not like Hillary. She knows everything about Benghazi, about the investments in the Clinton Foundation, and where all the bodies are buried. She has all the files that were once on Hillary’s server, which I am sure sits at the bottom of the Hudson River by now. When the time is right, and too late for the Democrats to put together another candidate, they will release this information and destroy Hillary.

Then the president will issue an executive order rescinding the 22nd Amendment in order to provide continuity and to protect the American people and Mexican people from losing the transformation he alone was successful in making into law. Obamacare must be saved from being changed back to Hillarycare. Like Roosevelt before him, the people will award him with the unlimited extension of his presidency.

Who would stop him? Congress? Surely you jest. The ten Republican senators that consistently vote with Obama will never betray him, which emasculates the majority Americans think they have in Congress. They have a lower approval rating than hemorrhoids. Obama has opened our borders, given away our military secrets, polarized black people against white people, rich against poor, and worked harder than anyone to dissolve marriage from American society. He commands the IRS to systematically destroy every single Tea Party congressman and senator. He orders the EPA to destroy the coal industry and to protect global corporations that are his largest contributors. He orders the DOT to stop competitors against Government Motors. He hands out trillions to his supporters and starves and litigates his enemies. Any Supreme Court decision will be used to stoke the furnace prepared to incinerate our Constitution by popular demand developed by an expert propaganda machine in Washington.

How about the military? Forget about that. Obama has removed more than 300 flag officers from their positions and replaced them with sycophants. He has armed and funded the nation’s first domestic standing army that answers to no one but him. Look around. Jade Helm 2015 is moving thousands of armored vehicles and foreign troops into strategic areas around the country as we speak. This includes thousands of tons of razor wire. Who do you think is going to go back and remove all that razor wire after this temporary training exercise is over? No one, because it will never be over. I understand that the code HELM means Homeland Eradication of Local Militia.

The world’s most powerful government writes law, taxes, fines, confiscates our possessions, and will kill or incarcerate anyone it wants anywhere it wants without due process of law. The shocker is that the American people have no representation in that government, and it answers to no one but the president. That is the pure definition of tyranny. I would say that the presidency is his for the taking, wouldn’t you?.

Vladimir Putin and Valerie Jarrett have taught Mr. Obama well the first rule of power. When you get the power in your hands, never let it go.

Mission Creep In Syria

 syria

Syria is Obama’s war. Imported IS and other takfiri terrorists are US proxy foot soldiers.

Assad’s government is the target, regime change Washington’s longstanding objective. On May 25, AP headlined “Turkey, US to provide air protection to Syrian rebels.”

They’re not rebels. They terrorists. They’re not moderates. They’re extremists.

AP said Washington and Ankara “agreed in ‘principle’ to provide air protection to Syrian rebels being trained and equipped to fight Islamic State militants, once they enter Syrian territory for battle” – according to Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

Fact: US special forces train, fund, arm and direct IS and other takfiri terrorists in Turkey, Jordan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia to continue waging war on Assad’s government.

Cavusoglu said “(t)hey have to be supported by air. (Without air support), what is the point?”

In February, both countries agreed to train and arm around 15,000 anti-Assad fighters at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars.

So far, plans don’t include a no-fly zone and/or safe zone in Syrian territory. Details on how Washington intends providing air support aren’t known.

Obama’s game plan may be Libya 2.0 – terror-bombing a country into submission combined with ground forces committing mass murder and other atrocities.

All options remain open, Obama said earlier. Will US terror-bombing of Syria’s military follow? Will Damascus be targeted? Will efforts be made to kill Assad?

A potential major escalation looms. So far, US officials remain silent about what may be planned.

AP reported “US officials (saying Washington’s) aim is to train 5,000 (anti-Assad fighters) a year for three years” at sites in Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Cavusoglu lied saying “the fight against (IS) is prioritized.” You don’t eliminate your own foot soldiers.

Plans call for toppling Assad – perhaps murdering him the way Washington disposed of Gaddafi, Saddam and other leaders it wanted eliminated.

Bloody US proxy war on Syria rages in its fifth year. Nearly half the population is displaced.

IS terrorists control large parts of Syrian territory. It appears just a matter of time before conflict reaches Damascus.

If US-terror-bombing targets Assad’s forces, expect Syria to become another Libya with endless conflict, chaos, turmoil and human misery throughout the country under dystopian conditions.

America’s killing machine operates this way against one country after another on the bogus pretext of protecting national security, humanitarian intervention and spreading democracy worldwide.

US mission creep apparently intends greater war on Syria than already. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said if so-called rebels “are contested by regime forces, we would have some responsibility to help them” – code language perhaps for full-scale US naked aggression against Syria posing no threat to America or its neighbors.

Emergency Powers Give Barack Obama Authority Over Just About Everything During A Major National Crisis

obama

Presidents have always exercised emergency powers, but now thanks to dozens of new laws, regulations, court decisions and executive orders, Barack Obama is the most powerful president in all of U.S. history.  Of course the U.S. Constitution does not actually give the president any special powers during a time of national emergency, but over time presidents have decided that they should be able to exercise such powers and the courts have generally agreed with them.  During World War II and prior to that, these emergency powers were largely uncodified and were primarily used during times of war.  But since World War II things have completely changed, and this has particularly been true since 9/11.  Over the past decade or so, a whole host of extraordinary powers have specifically been given to the office of the president, and all that it takes to exercise them is a major “national emergency”.  So if we do have a full-blown economic collapse, a historic natural disaster, a significant war or a massive pandemic, Barack Obama could use the emergency powers that he has been given to essentially take authority over everything.

There is not a single document or series of documents that contain all of the emergency powers that Barack Obama could potentially wield during a major national emergency.  As I mentioned above, these powers come from literally dozens of laws, regulations, court decisions and executive orders.  But in this article I will discuss a few important documents.  One of these is a presidential directive that was issued during the second term of George W. Bush.  It is entitled NATIONAL SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/NSPD – 51/HOMELAND SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/HSPD – 20, and you can take a look at it on the FEMA website right here.  This document is primarily concerned with the continuity of our federal government in the event of a catastrophic emergency.  So precisely what would constitute a “catastrophic emergency”?  The following is how the document defines that term…

“Catastrophic Emergency” means any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions;

That sounds quite broad to me.  It could apply to all sorts of scenarios.

If we do have such a “catastrophic emergency”, the president essentially becomes a dictator at that point.  The document certainly talks about the need to ensure that “constitutional government” continues, but during the course of the emergency there really is not much of a role for the other two branches of government to play.  Instead, the “shadow government” takes over under the overall command of the president.  The following is a short excerpt from the document…

The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government. In order to advise and assist the President in that function, the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism (APHS/CT) is hereby designated as the National Continuity Coordinator. The National Continuity Coordinator, in coordination with the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (APNSA), without exercising directive authority, shall coordinate the development and implementation of continuity policy for executive departments and agencies. The Continuity Policy Coordination Committee (CPCC), chaired by a Senior Director from the Homeland Security Council staff, designated by the National Continuity Coordinator, shall be the main day-to-day forum for such policy coordination.

Of course the 11 page document that we have on the FEMA website is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to continuity of government planning.  Unfortunately, most of the plans are top secret and are not allowed to be seen by the public.  Astonishingly, this even applies to members of Congress.  The following comes from Wikipedia

On July 18, 2007, Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR), a member of the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security, requested the classified and more detailed version of the government’s continuity of government plan in a letter signed by him and the chairperson of the House Homeland Committee, which is supposed to have access to confidential government information. The president refused to provide the information, to the surprise of the congressional committee.

Another document that raises a lot of red flags is an executive order entitled “National Defense Resources Preparedness” that was issued by Barack Obama on March 16th, 2012.  This particular executive order updates previous executive orders, and it gives the president extraordinary authority during a time of national emergency.  Below, I have posted most of section 201 of that executive order.  As you can see, it potentially gives Barack Obama authority over just about everything during a time of national emergency if he feels it is needed for “national defense”…

Sec. 201Priorities and Allocations Authorities.  (a)  The authority of the President conferred by section 101 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2071, to require acceptance and priority performance of contracts or orders (other than contracts of employment) to promote the national defense over performance of any other contracts or orders, and to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense, is delegated to the following agency heads:

(1)  the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;

(2)  the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;

(3)  the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources;

(4)  the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;

(5)  the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and

(6)  the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials.

(b)  The Secretary of each agency delegated authority under subsection (a) of this section (resource departments) shall plan for and issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources and establish standards and procedures by which the authority shall be used to promote the national defense, under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.  Each Secretary shall authorize the heads of other agencies, as appropriate, to place priority ratings on contracts and orders for materials, services, and facilities needed in support of programs approved under section 202 of this order.

A similar executive order regarding national communications was issued on July 6th, 2012.

But the powers that Barack Obama could potentially wield during a time of national emergency are not just limited to what is written down.  This may shock many Americans, but it is true.  In the past, presidents have used their “emergency powers” to suspend habeas corpus, to place American citizens in internment camps and to seize private property.  The following comes from Wikipedia

A claim of emergency powers was at the center of President Abraham Lincoln’s suspension of habeas corpus without Congressional approval in 1861. Lincoln claimed that the rebellion created an emergency that permitted him the extraordinary power of unilaterally suspending the writ. With Chief Justice Roger Taney sitting as judge, the Federal District Court of Maryland struck down the suspension in Ex Parte Merryman, although Lincoln ignored the order. 17 F. Cas. 144 (1861).

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt similarly invoked emergency powers when he issued an order directing that all Japanese Americans residing on the West Coast be placed into internment camps during World War II. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld this order in Korematsu v. United States. 323 U.S. 214 (1944).

Harry Truman declared the use of emergency powers when he seized private steel mills that failed to produce steel because of a labor strike in 1952. With the Korean War ongoing, Truman asserted that he could not wage war successfully if the economy failed to provide him with the material resources necessary to keep the troops well-equipped. The U.S. Supreme Court, however, refused to accept that argument in Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer, voting 6-3 that neither Commander in Chief powers nor any claimed emergency powers gave the President the authority to unilaterally seize private property without Congressional legislation. 343 U.S. 579.

And it is important to keep in mind that Barack Obama now possesses far more power than any of those presidents ever did.  All it is going to take for him to exercise those powers is a major national emergency.  This is something that Jim Powell discussed in an article for Forbes

Not long after that, we found ourselves in an open-ended national emergency declared on September 14, 2001 and extended since by both George W. Bush and Barack Obama.  This means the president has standby powers from hundreds of statutes that would enable him to re-introduce military conscription, seize private property and in myriad ways establish a government-run economy.

Thankfully, things are still somewhat stable for the moment so Obama does not have a reasonable excuse to use all of the powers that he has been given.  But that could change at any time.  If we do see a “catastrophic emergency” in the next year or so, there are very few limits on what Barack Obama would be able to do.  That includes potentially postponing or suspending the 2016 election so that he can remain in office throughout the course of the national emergency.

We have never seen such a thing happen before, and hopefully we never will.  And of course it isn’t just Barack Obama that we need to be concerned about.  A future leader of this nation could potentially be even worse than him.  It has been exceedingly foolish for us to give a single person so much power in the event of a “catastrophic emergency”, and in the end we may regret this bitterly.

The Bin Laden Raid Was A Work Of Fiction, And Barack Obama Should Immediately Resign

osama_bin_laden_raid

Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has uncovered one of the biggest lies in modern American history.  It turns out that much of what the American public was told about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden was a blatant lie.  According to Hersh, Osama bin Laden had been captured by Pakistan all the way back in 2006, and he was being held by the ISI as a prisoner at the Abbottabad compound that the Seals ultimately raided in 2011.  In addition, Hersh says that the ISI and Pakistan’s military knew about the Seal raid in advance.  Arrangements were made so that the Black Hawk helicopters could travel through Pakistani airspace safely, and the ISI guards at Osama bin Laden’s compound were pulled away before the Seals got there.  And by that time, Osama bin Laden was reportedly in such bad health that he was essentially a cripple.  There was no “firefight” at all – only a turkey shoot.  Afterwards, Osama bin Laden’s body never made it to the USS Carl Vinson for a “burial at sea”.  That was all just part of the cover story according to Hersh.  Of course the White House and Obama’s lackeys at CNN are strongly denying all of this, and they will continue to deny the truth for as long as they possibly can.  But there are individuals in the U.S. military and in the U.S. intelligence community that can come forward and tell us what really happened.  Let us hope that at least some of those individuals still care enough about this country to do that.

According to Hersh, one of the biggest lies that Obama told was that Pakistani leadership had no idea that the Seals were coming in.  Actually, the truth is that the head of the army, General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, and the director general of the ISI, General Ahmed Shuja Pasha, were both heavily involved in the planning of the operation.  The following is an excerpt from Hersh’s article for the London Review of Books

Pasha and Kayani were responsible for ensuring that Pakistan’s army and air defence command would not track or engage with the US helicopters used on the mission. The American cell at Tarbela Ghazi was charged with co-ordinating communications between the ISI, the senior US officers at their command post in Afghanistan, and the two Black Hawk helicopters; the goal was to ensure that no stray Pakistani fighter plane on border patrol spotted the intruders and took action to stop them. The initial plan said that news of the raid shouldn’t be announced straightaway. All units in the Joint Special Operations Command operate under stringent secrecy and the JSOC leadership believed, as did Kayani and Pasha, that the killing of bin Laden would not be made public for as long as seven days, maybe longer. Then a carefully constructed cover story would be issued: Obama would announce that DNA analysis confirmed that bin Laden had been killed in a drone raid in the Hindu Kush, on Afghanistan’s side of the border. The Americans who planned the mission assured Kayani and Pasha that their co-operation would never be made public. It was understood by all that if the Pakistani role became known, there would be violent protests – bin Laden was considered a hero by many Pakistanis – and Pasha and Kayani and their families would be in danger, and the Pakistani army publicly disgraced.

When the Seals got to the compound in Abbottabad, bin Laden and his family were completely unguarded.  That is because the ISI guards had already been pulled back.

Here is more from Hersh

At the Abbottabad compound ISI guards were posted around the clock to keep watch over bin Laden and his wives and children. They were under orders to leave as soon as they heard the rotors of the US helicopters. The town was dark: the electricity supply had been cut off on the orders of the ISI hours before the raid began. One of the Black Hawks crashed inside the walls of the compound, injuring many on board. ‘The guys knew the TOT [time on target] had to be tight because they would wake up the whole town going in,’ the retired official said. The cockpit of the crashed Black Hawk, with its communication and navigational gear, had to be destroyed by concussion grenades, and this would create a series of explosions and a fire visible for miles. Two Chinook helicopters had flown from Afghanistan to a nearby Pakistani intelligence base to provide logistical support, and one of them was immediately dispatched to Abbottabad. But because the helicopter had been equipped with a bladder loaded with extra fuel for the two Black Hawks, it first had to be reconfigured as a troop carrier. The crash of the Black Hawk and the need to fly in a replacement were nerve-wracking and time-consuming setbacks, but the Seals continued with their mission. There was no firefight as they moved into the compound; the ISI guards had gone. ‘Everyone in Pakistan has a gun and high-profile, wealthy folks like those who live in Abbottabad have armed bodyguards, and yet there were no weapons in the compound,’ the retired official pointed out. Had there been any opposition, the team would have been highly vulnerable. Instead, the retired official said, an ISI liaison officer flying with the Seals guided them into the darkened house and up a staircase to bin Laden’s quarters. The Seals had been warned by the Pakistanis that heavy steel doors blocked the stairwell on the first and second-floor landings; bin Laden’s rooms were on the third floor. The Seal squad used explosives to blow the doors open, without injuring anyone. One of bin Laden’s wives was screaming hysterically and a bullet – perhaps a stray round – struck her knee. Aside from those that hit bin Laden, no other shots were fired. (The Obama administration’s account would hold otherwise.)

After the raid, Obama was never supposed to go public with what had happened.  Instead, about a week later a cover story about how bin Laden had been killed in a drone strike was supposed to be released to the public.  Obama betrayed the Pakistanis for his own political gain.  And the highly touted “burial at sea” of bin Laden never took place either

Within weeks of the raid, I had been told by two longtime consultants to Special Operations Command, who have access to current intelligence, that the funeral aboard the Carl Vinson didn’t take place. One consultant told me that bin Laden’s remains were photographed and identified after being flown back to Afghanistan. The consultant added: ‘At that point, the CIA took control of the body. The cover story was that it had been flown to the Carl Vinson.’ The second consultant agreed that there had been ‘no burial at sea’. He added that ‘the killing of bin Laden was political theatre designed to burnish Obama’s military credentials … The Seals should have expected the political grandstanding. It’s irresistible to a politician. Bin Laden became a working asset.’ Early this year, speaking again to the second consultant, I returned to the burial at sea. The consultant laughed and said: ‘You mean, he didn’t make it to the water?’

The retired official said there had been another complication: some members of the Seal team had bragged to colleagues and others that they had torn bin Laden’s body to pieces with rifle fire. The remains, including his head, which had only a few bullet holes in it, were thrown into a body bag and, during the helicopter flight back to Jalalabad, some body parts were tossed out over the Hindu Kush mountains – or so the Seals claimed. At the time, the retired official said, the Seals did not think their mission would be made public by Obama within a few hours: ‘If the president had gone ahead with the cover story, there would have been no need to have a funeral within hours of the killing. Once the cover story was blown, and the death was made public, the White House had a serious “Where’s the body?” problem.

Obviously the Seals could blow up the whole story by coming back and talking to the media.  That is why the Obama administration has gone to extraordinary lengths to silence them

The White House’s solution was to silence the Seals. On 5 May, every member of the Seal hit team – they had returned to their base in southern Virginia – and some members of the Joint Special Operations Command leadership were presented with a nondisclosure form drafted by the White House’s legal office; it promised civil penalties and a lawsuit for anyone who discussed the mission, in public or private. ‘The Seals were not happy,’ the retired official said. But most of them kept quiet, as did Admiral William McRaven, who was then in charge of JSOC. ‘McRaven was apoplectic. He knew he was ****** by the White House, but he’s a dyed-in-the-wool Seal, and not then a political operator, and he knew there’s no glory in blowing the whistle on the president. When Obama went public with bin Laden’s death, everyone had to scramble around for a new story that made sense, and the planners were stuck holding the bag.’

There is so much more in Hersh’s article, and you can read the rest of it right here.  The following is how Business Insider summarized some of the main points…

  • The White House’s “most blatant” lie was that Pakistan’s two most senior military officials were never informed of the mission, Hersh says.
  • While US officials say they found bin Laden by tracking his trusted courier, Hersh says they discovered his whereabouts from a former Pakistani intelligence officer who wanted the $25 million reward the US was offering.
  • The government claimed bin Laden was hiding out, but Hersh says the Pakistani intelligence agency had actually been holding him captive since 2006 to use him as leverage against Taliban and Al Qaeda activities in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
  • While the White House has said it would have taken bin Laden alive if it could have and that he was killed in a firefight, Hersh says that wasn’t the case. “There was no firefight as they moved into the compound; the ISI guards had gone,” Hersh wrote.
  • The article also takes issue with the White House’s claim that bin Laden was buried at sea in a service that followed Islamic practices. “The remains, including his head, which had only a few bullet holes in it, were thrown into a body bag and, during the helicopter flight back to Jalalabad, some body parts were tossed out over the Hindu Kush mountains — or so the Seals claimed,” Hersh reported, citing his senior US intelligence official.

If these things are true, Barack Obama and much of his inner circle should immediately resign.  They purposely and maliciously lied to the American people over and over for their own political gain.  But of course so far they are choosing to deny everything

“There are too many inaccuracies and baseless assertions in this piece to fact check each one,” White House National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said in a statement shared with The Hill.

“Every sentence I was reading was wrong,” former acting CIA Director Michael Morell added Monday on “CBS This Morning.”

“The source that Hersh talked to has no idea what he’s talking about. The person obviously was not close to what happened,” he added. “The Pakistanis did not know. The president made a decision not to tell the Pakistanis. The Pakistanis were furious with us. The president sent me to Pakistan after the raids to start smoothing things over.”

So what we need are people who know what really happened to step forward and tell the American people the truth.

Without a doubt, there are individuals in the U.S. military and in the U.S. intelligence community that can expose the lies of the Obama administration if they have the courage to act.

If you are one of those individuals and you choose to remain silent, you are betraying this country just like the Obama administration has.  The time has come to tell the truth, and it is your duty as an American to do so.

Obama DID NOT Kill Bin Laden!

Obama_and_Biden_await_updates_on_bin_Laden

Claiming otherwise is one of his many Big Lies. On May 1, 2011, he willfully deceived the US public saying:

“The death of bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date in our nation’s effort to defeat Al Qaeda.”

“Today’s achievement is a testament to the greatness of our country and the determination of the American people.”

In last Sunday’s London Review of Books, investigative journalist Seymour Hersh shredded Obama’s Big Lie like others before him.

Obama’s official narrative “might have been written by (Alice in Wonderland author) Lewis Carroll,” he said. It was a total fabrication. More on his account below.

Volumes of evidence separate fact from fiction. On July 11, 2002, New York Times said “Osama bin Laden is dead. (He) died in December and was buried in the mountains of southeast Afghanistan.”

“Pakistan’s president, Pervez Musharraf, echoed the information…(T)he truth is that Osama bin Laden is dead.”

The BBC, Fox News and other media sources reported the same information. David Ray Griffin seminal book on the topic titled “Osama Bin Laden: Dead or Alive?” did it best.

He presented “objective evidence and testimonies.” The former includes the following:

Through December 13, 2001, the CIA monitored messages between bin Laden and his associates. Suddenly they stopped.

On December 26, 2001, a leading Pakistani newspaper reported bin Laden’s death. It cited a prominent Taliban official attending his funeral – witnessing his dead body before it was laid to rest.

His was very ill with kidney disease and other ailments. In July 2001, he was treated at the American Hospital in Dubai.

On September 10, 2001 (one day before 9/11), CBS News anchor Dan Rather reported his admittance to a Rawalpindi, Pakistan hospital.

He had nothing to do with 9/11. An earlier article discussed the Mother of All Big Lies.

In January 2001, Dr. Sanjay Gupta said bin Laden appeared “in the last stages of kidney failure” (according to Griffin) – based on video evidence he saw in late November or early December 2001.

In July 2002, CNN reported the capture of bin Laden’s bodyguards months earlier in February. “Sources believe that if the bodyguards were captured away from bin Laden, it is likely the most-wanted man in the world is dead,” it said.

Washington offered a $25 million reward for information leading to bin Laden’s capture or killing. No one came forward to claim it. More on this below.

Testimonial evidence Griffin cited included influential “people in a position to know” saying bin Laden died in December 2001 including:

• Pakistan President Musharraf;

• FBI counterterrorism head Dale Watson;

• Oliver North saying, “I’m certain that Osama is dead…and so are all the other guys I stay in touch with;”

• Afghanistan President Karzai;

• Israeli intelligence saying supposed bin Laden messages were fake; and

• Pakistan’s ISI “confirm(ing) the death of…Osama bin Laden (and) attribut(ing) the reasons behind Washington’s hiding (the truth) to the desire of (America’s hawks) to use the issue of al Qaeda and international terrorism to invade Iraq.”

In October 2008, former CIA case officer Robert Baer told National Public Radio when asked: “Of course he’s dead.”

In March 2009, former Foreign Service officer Angelo Codevilla published an American Spectator article titled “Osama bin Elvis, saying:

“Seven years after (his) last verifiable appearance among the living, there is more evidence of Elvis’s presence among us than for his.”

Griffin explained today’s advanced technology can create fake messages and videos able to fool most people.

Pre-May 2011 claims about “bin Laden’s continued existence (weren’t) backed up by evidence,” Griffin explained.

Perpetuating the myth about bin Laden remaining alive until May 2011 remains one of the Big Lies of our time.

It bears repeating. Clear evidence proves he died of natural causes in December 2001. Keeping alive a dead man was done to pursue America’s phony “war on terror.”

So-called “Enemy Number One” was used to stoke fear as pretext for post-9/11 imperial wars on one country after another to this day.

Griffin hoped his book would help shorten America’s wars. They rage endlessly. Don’t expect Hersh’s article to change things.

He said bin Laden’s reported killing was “the high point of Obama’s first term, and a major factor in his re-election.”

The official White House account of bin Laden’s death was totally “false,” said Hersh. His version of events differs markedly from Griffin’s explained above.

Most important is both explanations and others expose the official Big Lie – hype used as justification for America’s war on terror, naked aggression against one country after another by any standard.

Hersh said the May 2011 bin Laden operation began in August 2010 after a former senior Pakistani (ISI) intelligence official offered information on his location in return for the $25 million reward Washington promised leading to his death or capture.

Claiming he was in Abbottabad under ISI house arrest doesn’t comport with convincing evidence of his December 2001 death.

Saying Obama wanted Osama dead belies his earlier demise. The staged bin Laden killing was hokum – especially with no visuals, corpse, independent proof and shifting official accounts.

Major events are always strategically timed for political reasons. In this case, to boost Obama’s sagging image. It got an immediate bump following the staged event.

It diverted attention from neoliberal harshness, force-fed austerity and protracted homeland Main Street Depression conditions.

They’re evident today in unprecedented levels of borderline/actual/or deep poverty, unemployment or underemployment, homelessness, hunger and overall deprivation in the world’s richest country.

It continued post-9/11 fear-mongering to further Washington’s imperial agenda – featuring one direct or proxy war of aggression after another against nations threatening no others.

So-called DNA evidence claimed to prove bin Laden’s death 12 hours after the staged Abbottabad incident was fake.

Experts explain DNA identification takes days to complete – impossible in hours, especially in a location with no professional lab or skilled personnel to conduct it.

Convincing evidence revealed about the alleged May 2011 bin Laden killing proves the official White House account was fabricated – one of many of Obama’s Big Lies.

A Final Comment

On August 6, 2011, 30 US special forces (including 20 Navy Seals) involved in the Abbottabad incident died in a reported helicopter crash in Afghanistan.

Draw your own conclusions. Dead men tell no tales.

Obama Orders The Military To Recruit Illegals

Army-ranks
By: Michael Becker | Joe For America –

He said he was going to fundamentally transform the country, and he’s doing it.  No part of the nation has felt the brunt of “Hope and Change” more than the US Military.

First it was the elimination of “don’t ask don’t tell” for homosexuals in the military. Then it was openly recruiting homosexuals in the military. Next came opening up slots for front-line combat units for women. That required reducing physical requirements to be in those units putting were fighters at risk. But that’s a small price to pay when you’re transforming the military.

General officers who are war fighters had been under attack by their “Commander-in-Chief” for the last six years and can expect to continue to be for at least the next two.

west-illegalsThe commander of the Air Force is a woman who is much more interested in enforcing quotas for female combat pilots, and redesigning fighter aircraft cockpits so they’re more comfortable for women, than she is in maintaining the ability of the Air Force to support close quarter combat with the A-10 Warthog.

The top priority of the U.S. Army in 2015 is [drumroll please] fighting sexual assault. Fighting Islamic terrorists is unlikely to be on their top ten list.

And now we have the “Commander-in-Chief” ordering the services to recruit illegal aliens. Were pretty sure this president thinks serving in the military is apparently a “job Americans won’t do.”

The Pentagon is speeding up its recruitment of illegal immigrants in a program that fast-tracks them to U.S. citizenship, as Congress debates allowing the military to do so.

Since January, the Pentagon has enlisted 81 illegal immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children and qualify for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, according to figures provided by the Army on Thursday.

Between January and April 8, only 43 had been enlisted, an Army spokesman said.

Since then, at least 38 more recruits have signed up.

Fortunately, some members of Congress are trying to limit the president’s ability to force the Army to continue to recruit illegal aliens. We expect that will go nowhere. Republican leadership in Congress hasn’t shown itself willing to fight Obama over anything.

But we shouldn’t be worried. An Army spokesman said the current enlistees are not yet officially Army soldiers. They will have to complete a “very thorough” background check. Pardon us while we laugh. Would that be the same background check that Bradley/Chelsea Manning passed to get a top-secret clearance?

Obama Threatens China With Nuclear Weapons

 nuclear_explosion

No nation in world history ever threatened humanity’s survival more than America.

None operates more recklessly. Lunatics in charge wage endless wars of aggression against nonbelligerent countries.

Peace and stability are verboten. Direct and proxy wars rage and more are planned.

In six years in office, Obama waged preemptive wars of aggression against seven nations. He has lots more death and destruction in mind.

Yemen is his latest atrocity. Ukraine heads toward resumed full-scale war at his discretion.

He challenges Russia provocatively and recklessly – risking direct confrontation.

His Asia policy threatens nuclear war with China. Last Friday, National Security Council senior Asian affairs director Evan Medeiros said John Kerry and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter would meet their Japanese counterparts in New York on Monday.

They’d “announce some historic changes to the way US-Japan alliance operates” ahead of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s Washington visit this week.

On Tuesday, Obama hosted him with an official state dinner. Regional security issues will be discussed during his stay.

A Monday released statement recklessly said Washington intends using nuclear and conventional weapons to defend Japan if necessary.

“Central to (its Asia policy) is the ironclad US commitment to the defense of Japan, through the full range of US military capabilities, including nuclear and conventional,” it said.

Japan has no regional enemies. At the same time, its Shino Abe-led government is its most militant since WW II – in a nation constitutionally opposed to war and militarism.

According to a joint US/Japan statement issued Monday:

Japan’s Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida and Defense Minister General Nakatani “welcomed US plans to deploy additional Aegis ships to Yokosuka Naval Base by 2017, as well as the swap-out of the aircraft carrier USS George Washington with the more advanced USS Ronald Reagan later this year.”

On April 6, the Defense Department announced it would locate 60% of America’s fleet to the Pacific/Indian Ocean region – armed with the newest/most state-of-the-art weapons systems.

Washington and Tokyo maintain disputed islands China calls Diaoyu (for Japan Senkaku) “are territories under the administration of Japan and therefore fall within the scope of the commitments under Article 5 of the US-Japan Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security.”

Tokyo claimed possession of the disputed islands since 1895 – Beijing since 1783. America occupied them from 1945 – 1972.

Key is what lies offshore – substantial oil and gas deposits for whichever country controls them.

Geopolitics are in play – part of  Washington’s Asia policy to marginalize, contain, isolate and weaken China.

Increasing Japanese militarism combined with America’s rage for war threatens open conflict in a part of the world hostile to foreign invaders.

Apparently Washington learned nothing from its earlier humiliating Southeast Asia defeat.

Confronting China and/or Russia militarily risk far greater potential consequences – potential humanity destroying nuclear war.

Belligerent US and Japanese foreign and defense ministers are in lockstep saying “they oppose any unilateral action that seeks to undermine Japan’s administration of (the disputed) islands” – code language for potentially provoking China belligerently.

It’s part of Washington’s so-called East Asia rebalancing – challenging China through strengthened military, economic, and political ties with Japan, South Korea, India, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Myanmar, Singapore and Vietnam.

Strategy includes undermining Chinese regional influence, isolating it from neighbors, and giving Washington more dominance over territories and waters not its own.

Russia very much is affected. Will global war follow?

A Final Comment

At the same time, US-dominated NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg confirmed plans to more than double the Alliance’s Response Force from 13,000 to 30,000 – plus create a new 5,000-strong quick reaction Spearhead Force “to build more stability,” he said.

He lied claiming “a dramatically changed security environment in Europe.” NATO’s only threats are ones it invents.

Humanity’s only real threat is America’s rage for endless wars – together with rogue partners willing to serve its interests over their own – willing to forego peace and stability for permanent conflicts.

US-dominated NATO and Israel threaten world peace, stability and security.

Restoring what’s lost requires slaying this monster once and for all. Humanity’s survival depends on it.

Why Is Obama So Silent About The Vicious Persecution Of Christians All Over The Globe?

Obama

As you read this article, Christians are being openly persecuted in more than 60 nations.  Churches are being burned, believers are being hunted down and imprisoned, and violent mobs are beating and killing those that dare to say that Jesus is Lord.  And thanks to ISIS, the persecution of Christians has risen to frightening new levels in 2015.  In recent months, our news sources have been filled with headlines about Christians that are being beheaded, crucified and buried alive by ISIS.  According to U.S. Representative Frank Wolf, what is happening to Christians in the Middle East actually meets the United Nations definition of “genocide”.  So what is Barack Obama doing about all of this?  Sadly, he is essentially doing next to nothing.  He has been nearly silent as the acts of mass violence just keep piling up.  This silence has outraged many on both the left and the right, and yet Obama just continues to keep quiet.  What are we supposed to make of that?

Just consider an example from earlier this week.  A group of angry Muslims threw twelve innocent Christian migrants into the Mediterranean Sea resulting in their deaths, but Obama apparently does not believe that it is important enough to talk about. The following is from an editorial that Kirsten Powers penned for USA Today

If a Christian mob on a ship bound for Italy threw 12 Muslims to their death for praying to Allah, does anyone think the president would have been so disinterested? When three North Carolina Muslims were gunned down by a virulent atheist, Obama rightly spoke out against the horrifying killings. But he just can’t seem to find any passion for the mass persecution of Middle Eastern Christians or the eradication of Christianity from its birthplace.

When violence is perpetrated against a group of people that Obama is inclined to protect, he is all over it.  But when it comes to the most persecuted faith on the planet, the best that Obama can do is mumble a few half-hearted words once in a while

The president’s mumblings about the atrocities visited upon Christians (usually extracted after public outcry over his silence) are few and far between. And it will be hard to forget his lecturing of Christians at the National Prayer Breakfast about the centuries-old Crusades while Middle Eastern Christians were at that moment being harassed, driven from their homes, tortured and murdered for their faith.

And when it comes to the global persecution of Christians, the leadership of the White House matters.

As Erik Rush recently observed, the tone of this White House regarding minority Christians populations around the globe has been far different than we have seen from previous administrations…

While the diplomatic dynamics behind the following may be news to many, it is a fact that over many presidential administrations, nations with minority Christian populations (particularly in the Middle East) were always made aware that our foreign policy concerning them would be to some extent predicated on the treatment of Christians thereof.

All that changed when Barack Hussein Obama ascended to the presidency, and the testimony of Christians living in these nations bears this out. Even excluding such extreme examples as the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power in Egypt (after which Christians were being crucified in the streets), the general deportment of Islamic governments in the region with regard to Christians changed from one of grudging tolerance to abject persecution. As we can readily observe now in the region, as well as in Islamic African nations, the violent persecution of Christians has practically become a new national pastime.

In other words, Obama’s silence on Christian persecution has been a signal that it is open season on Christians, and those that hate Christians around the world have responded appropriately.

Fortunately, we still have a few national leaders that are willing to stand up for Christians around the world.  One of them, U.S. Representative Frank Wolf, says that what ISIS is doing to Christians in the Middle East meets the official United Nations definition of genocide

“It is genocide. It meets the test of genocide,” Wolf said, citing accepted United Nations parameters for the practice.

In Wolf’s estimation, and that of many Americans of conscience, the Obama administration’s failure to weigh in on this atrocity in any manner whatsoever is an abject disgrace.

And let’s remember – this is not just happening in the Middle East, and it is not just Muslims that are doing this.

The persecution of Christians has become a truly global phenomenon, and sometimes the most brutal incidents are in places that we would not even think of.

For example, there was a brutal attack on Christians in India by Hindu extremists on April 8th

Christians sustained broken bones and wounds when Hindu extremists on April 8 attacked an open-air gospel event in Telangana state, India, sources said.

Police initially refused to help church members after the mob of about 100 Hindu extremists seriously injured four Christians in the attack in Pebbair, Mahabubnagar District, they said. Area church leaders submitted a complaint citing inaction by police.

So what were those Christians doing wrong?

Absolutely nothing.

They were just holding a meeting.

And these Hindu extremists didn’t just attack men.  According to one news report, they were even beating women and children…

Hindu extremists from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Bajrang Dal charged into the evangelistic meeting on the final day of the three-day event at about 9:30 p.m. Shouting “Jai Shri Ram [Praise Lord Ram],” the Hindu extremists led by local leaders of the RSS and Bajrang Dal attacked the Kristhu Suvartha Ujiva congregation, beating pastors, women, children and the aged while insulting their faith.

Sadly, this is nothing new for this part of India.  Last year, there were 15 violent attacks against Christians in that exact area.

But Obama is going to be extremely reluctant to help any Bible-believing Christians, because he considers them to be his political enemies.  And yes, most Bible-believing Christians in America voted against Barack Obama.  But that is no excuse for how he has been acting.

And it is not just a matter of doing nothing.  During the Obama administration, Bible-believing Christians are being purged out of the military and they are even being labeled as “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents.  Obama’s animosity for Bible-believing Christians in America is glaringly apparent, and this is likely the root cause for his appalling lack of concern for persecuted Christians around the planet.

What I want to share with you next is the kind of speech that we would be hearing if we had a good man in the White House.  This speech was recently delivered by author Jonathan Cahn at the United Nations, and it is extremely moving

Why can’t Obama give a speech like that?

We like to point to atrocities throughout history and talk about how we would have done things differently if we had been there.

But we are watching a major atrocity unfold right in front of our eyes here in 2015, and our government is just standing by and letting it happen.

So exactly what does that say about the state of our nation and the state of our national leadership?

Obama-Authorized Murder By Drones

 Obama-drones

Obama-authorized drone killings are cold-blooded murder by any standard – mostly affecting noncombatant civilians, innocent men, women and children in harm’s way.

Former Obama White House press secretary Jay Carney lied calling drone strikes “precise, lawful and effective.”

They’re indiscriminate and lawless. They accomplish no geopolitical objectives. They arouse great public anger in targeted countries.

Days earlier, a drone strike killed a US and Italian hostage. A disingenuous White House press secretary statement said:

“It is with tremendous sorrow that we recently concluded that a US government counterterrorism operation in January killed two innocent hostages held by Al-Qaeda since 2011.”

Obama’s dishonest apology to surviving family members rang hollow. He lied saying “(b)ased on the intelligence that we had obtained at the time…we believed that this was an Al Qaeda compound, that no civilians were present…”

“Before any strike is taken, there must be near- certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured – the highest standard we can set.”

Truth is polar opposite. More on this below.

The White House announced an investigation into the incident. Expect whitewash to follow.

Drone killings have nothing to do with counterterrorism. America’s so-called war on terror is phony.

It’s waged to advance Washington’s imperium – through endless direct and proxy wars, including cold-blooded murder by drones.

US development expert Dr. Warren Weinstein and Italian aid worker Giovanni Lo Porto are two of thousands of US victims – murdered by American ruthlessness.

Drones are instruments of state terror. Claims about only targeting terrorists are Big Lies. So is saying using them makes America safer.

A 2012 Stanford/New York University study estimates only 2% of drone victims are so-called high-value targets. Evidence shows drone strikes facilitate anti-American recruitment.

The study said “US drone strike policies cause considerable and under-accounted-for harm to the daily lives of ordinary civilians, beyond death and physical injury.”

“Drones hover twenty-four hours a day over communities in northwest Pakistan (and other targeted countries), striking homes, vehicles, and public spaces without warning.”

“Their presence terrorizes men, women, and children, giving rise to anxiety and psychological trauma among civilian communities.”

“Those living under drones have to face the constant worry that a deadly strike may be fired at any moment, and the knowledge that they are powerless to protect themselves. These fears have affected behavior.”

Targeted areas are struck multiple times in quick succession – a practice called “double tap.”

Family members, friends and bystanders arriving to help victims are themselves murdered or maimed by drone attacks.

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism estimates over 4,400 innocent civilians murdered by US drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen alone since 2004 – besides many more in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, and other US war theaters.

Dozens of Western civilians have been killed, including at least 10 Americans.

Britain’s Reprieve human rights group estimates 28 noncombatants are killed to eliminate one so-called terrorist.

Reprieve’s Jennifer Gibson said “(d)rone strikes have been sold to the American public on the claim that they’re ‘precise.”

“But they are only as precise as the intelligence that feeds them. There is nothing precise about intelligence that results in the deaths of 28 unknown people, including women and children, for every (so-called real or invented) ‘bad guy’ the US goes after.”

John Kerry lied earlier claiming “(t)he only people we fire a drone at are confirmed terrorist targets at the highest level, after a great deal of vetting that takes a long period of time.”

“We don’t just fire a drone at somebody and think they’re a terrorist.”

It bears repeating. Drone strikes are indiscriminate, lawless, cold-blooded murder. The overwhelming number of victims are noncombatant civilian men, women and children.

They’re not so-called terrorists by any standard. Claiming otherwise is one of many Big Lies told to justify US ruthlessness.

In Yemen alone, US drone wars raged since 2002. Hundreds of Yemeni civilians perished. Obama killed many more noncombatants by drones than George Bush – with months left in his tenure to murder many more.

Reprieve’s Jennifer Gibson was blunt saying “Obama needs to be straight with the American people about the human cost of this program.”

“(H)is claims that this is a precise program look like nonsense, and the risk that it is in fact making us less safe looks all too real.”

RAND Corporation senior fellow Seth Jones says “no major terrorist organization in the world…has (ever) been defeated by drones.”

It bears repeating. They’re instruments of state terror. They’re used to commit cold-blooded murder – harming innocent civilians most.

If You Think Jade Helm’s Bad, Wait Till You Hear About The Presidential Police Force Established On The Heels Of Jade Helm! It’s About To Get Wild! (VIDEOS)

 police state usa

By: Lisa Haven | Lisa Haven News

On December 18, 2014, President Barack Obama secretly signed an executive order creating a Presidential Task Force geared at 21st Century Policing. This Force seeks not only to identify ways for police departments to better themselves but also promotes increased interaction of our local police officers in our schools, businesses, communities and many other aspects of our lives. The main objective of the force is to get the public acquainted with their presence and to establish a trust connection in communities.

While this all sounds like “sunshine and lollipops” we must consider this a step towards the integration of preparation for martial law. Considering this task force comes on the heels of Jade Helm—who’s object it is to gain public trust as well— we must consider the possibility. What are the chances that both Jade Helm, (a military training exercise) and the Presidential Task Force for the 21st Century (a police objective report) are geared at gaining the publics trust? Could there be a link between them and martial law preparation? Or am I thinking too much into it?

Here is the breaking report….

Oops Leaked Info You’re Not Supposed to Know: Military Plans a Martial Law Visit to Multiple US Towns! Why? The Answer Will Make You Rethink What You Thought You Already Knew

According to Jade Helm one of the main objectives for the Military is to: “…work with civilians to gain their trust and an understanding of the issues.”

According to the Presidential Task Force for the 21st Century Policing Report the main objective is to promote: “Trust between law enforcement agencies and the people they protect and serve…” It further states that “People are more likely to obey the law when they believe those who are enforcing it have the right—the legitimate authority—to tell them what to do.” (page1)

The report also exposes the goal of having local police highly involved in our communities, schools, businesses and lives on a daily basis, “The mission of the task force is to examine how to foster strong, collaborative relationships between local law enforcement and the communities they protect…” (page 1)

These similarities are striking! And while it seems like a good thing, the question needs to be asked; why is their an uptick in readying the community to trust the military through Jade Helm and the police force through the Presidential Task Force? Do they fear something is around the corner?

But that’s not all the Presidential Task Force Report Reveals. I also found these interesting facts enclosed in the document:

Pages 2 and 3 describe seven sessions conducted as a result of this task force that discuss a wide range of recommendations from faith leaders, law enforcement, academics, and more. It includes: 

  1. Building Trust and Legitimacy (gaining trust of community)
  2. Policy and Oversight (policies)
  3. Technology and Social Media (How to use technology to help police and privacy issues) 
  4. Community Policing and Crime Reduction (community policing and more trust building.) 
  5. Training and Education (Of which Jade Helm is a part of, just how to train)
  6. Officer Safety and Wellness
  7. Future of Community Policing (how to implement procedures)

Some recommendations on how to implement the above polices are as follows:

“The President create a National Crime and Justice Task Force to review and evaluate all components of the criminal justice system of rate purpose of making recommendations to the country on comprehensive criminal justice reform.” (pg. 3) It further stated the reason why was because “the justice system alone cannot solve many of the underlying conditions that give rise to crime. It will be through partnerships across sectors and at every level of government that we will find the effective and legitimate long-term solutions to ensuring public safety.” (pg. 4)

This clearly could indicate a future partnership of sorts between the local law enforcement, the federal government, and even branches of local businesses, churches, schools, etc. The problem with this is that it could turn into a mesh pot of information gathered against each individual kicking our privacy issues out the door. Further when our local police are continually interacting through “partnerships” we are likely to see an increase in police activity in our cities. Here are a few more recommendations promoting such interactions: 

Community policing should be infused throughout the culture and organizational structure of law enforcement agencies.” (pg. 43)

“Law enforcement agencies should develop programs that create opportunities for patrol officers to regularly interact with neighborhood residents, faith leaders, and business leaders.” (pg.46)

Law enforcement agencies should work with schools to develop and monitor school discipline policies with input and collaboration from school personnel, students, families, and community members. These policies should prohibit the use of corporal punishment and electronic control devices.” (pg.48-49)

“Communities and law enforcement agencies should restore and build trust between youth and police by creating programs and projects for positive, consistent, and persistent interaction between youth and police.” (pg. 50)

“The U.S. Department of Justice should explore public-private partnership opportunities, starting by convening a meeting with local, regional, and national foundations to discuss the proposals for reform described in this report and seeking their engagement and support in advancing implementation of these recommendations.” (pg. 71)

Am I reading to much into this? Or is there a link to be made? I guess the ultimate decision is yours. But either way, don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Obama’s War On Donbass: The Devastating Toll After One Year Of Conflict

donbass

Last April, Obama declared war on Donbass – using Kiev forces as convenient proxies.

He launched naked aggression weeks after ousting Ukraine’s legitimate government – installing putschist Nazi thugs replacing it.

They tolerate no opposition. They imprison or murder anyone challenging their authority.

Donbass freedom fighters reject fascist rule. They want Ukraine governed democratically.

They deserve universal support. All Donbass residents paid dearly for wanting fundamental freedoms.

Their struggle continues – perhaps for years. Fascists in Washington and Kiev don’t wage wars to quit.

Nor will Donbass freedom-fighters surrender to their authority. They routed Ukrainian forces.

They’ll do it again when Obama orders conflict resumed full-scale. Preparations are readying to do it – at his discretion.

US combat troops are working with Ukrainian forces. NATO planes arrive regularly carrying heavy weapons, munitions and other war supplies.

Expect lots more death and destruction ahead. Sputnik News explained the toll so far after one year of conflict.

Affected residents can explain it best of all. Their suffering and trauma continues daily. They mourn for loved ones lost.

No conflict resolution will bring them back. Nothing can change what happened. The worst may be yet to come.

UN figures claim 6,072 killed – another 15,345 wounded. Independent sources report much higher figures – multiples more than conservative estimates.

Perhaps 100,000 or more have been killed or wounded – many maimed for life.

The Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) estimates 1.5 million internally or externally displaced refugees.

OSCE officials report seven journalists killed, another 170 injured. These are conservative figures. More accurate ones are likely higher.

Donbass is one of the world’s most dangerous places for journalists. Kiev forces openly target them. Other times, they’re arrested, detained and tortured. Some die in captivity.

In Donetsk, an estimated 9,464 facilities and other structures were destroyed – including:

• 5,302 residential buildings;

• 53 hospitals and other medical facilities;

• 250 schools and pre-schools;

• 13 colleges and universities;

• 17 sports venues;

• 32 cultural institutions;

• 88 commercial enterprises;

• 56 industrial facilities;

• 605 power lines and distribution facilities;

• 148 heat supply facilities;

• 30 water supply facilities;

• 2,669 gas supply facilities;

• 53 road and transport infrastructure elements;

• Donetsk airport – turned to rubble; and

• the Saur-Monila memorial complex – entirely destroyed.

In Lugansk, an estimated 8,500 facilities and other structures were destroyed – including:

• 7,899 residential buildings;

• 65 hospitals, clinics and laboratories;

• 3 gas distribution stations;

• 33 heat supply facilities;

• 43 water supply facilities;

• 37 government buildings;

• 97 schools and pre-schools;

• 68 cultural institutions; and

• 77 churches.

Billions of dollars are needed to restore what’s lost. Maybe many billions more before conflict ends.

All the above devastation was non-military related. Even in legitimate wars, international law strictly forbids targeting civilians and non-military related sites.

Doing so constitutes war crimes. Waging naked aggression is the supreme high crime against peace.

It’s longstanding US policy – direct with US forces or using proxies like in Syria, Yemen and Donbass.

These and other US wars rage without end – genocidal by any standard.

ISIS Has Camps On The U.S. Border, But Obama Says ‘Right-Wing Extremists’ Are The Greatest Terror Threat

isis training

ISIS camps have now been discovered directly across the U.S. border with Mexico, ISIS operatives have been captured illegally entering the United States, and ISIS is threatening to conduct a massive campaign of terror against U.S. targets, and yet Barack Obama and his underlings continue to insist that “right-wing extremists” are the greatest terror threat that this nation is facing.  One recent survey found that 84 percent of all Americans believe that ISIS is a “direct threat to the USA”, but Obama refuses to secure our borders and he is even allowing dozens of American citizens that fought for ISIS overseas to come back into this country.  What in the world is Obama thinking?  Even though ISIS has promised to drown all of us in our own blood, the Obama administration has purged virtually all references to Islam out of government terror training materials.  Meanwhile, as you will see below, Obama’s political enemies have been regularly labeled as “potential terrorists” in official government documents during the Obama era.  This includes “patriots”, “conspiracy theorists”, “evangelical Christians” and “general right-wing extremists”.

This week, we learned that it has been confirmed that ISIS cells are operating in northern Mexico just a few miles from U.S. territory.  The following is an excerpt from a bombshell report that Judicial Watch just released…

ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

This comes on the heels of reports that federal authorities recently captured members of ISIS after they came across the border

The warning follows reports from Judicial Watch in recent months that Islamic terrorists have been captured in Texas after coming across the U.S. border from Mexico.

The organization said just last winter its sources within the Department of Homeland Security said several ISIS terror group members were arrested by federal authorities and the Texas Department of Public Safety in McAllen and Pharr.

Considering how porous our border security is at this point, how many more members of ISIS have been able to come across without getting caught?

And none of this should be catching anyone by surprise.  There have been warnings since the middle of last year that ISIS would be attempting to cross the southern border and attack targets inside the United States.  The following comes from a recent article by Kurt Nimmo

In 2014, Midland County, Texas Sheriff Gary Painter said ISIS would cross the border and strike the United States.

In August, a former CIA officer, Mike Baker, told the Laura Ingraham Show ISIS works with the drug cartels.

Judicial Watch said in August ISIS was using Juárez as a staging area and planned to launch a car bomb attack against Fort Bliss, a U.S. Army base about fifteen minutes from the border.

In September, Infowars reporter Joe Biggs. traveled to the area and crossed the Rio Grande dressed in an ISIS terrorist outfit. The stunt demonstrated how easy it would be for terrorists to enter the country.

But some members of ISIS don’t even have to try to come into the U.S. illegally.

If you can believe it, the Obama administration is actually welcoming back home many Americans that went overseas to fight for ISIS.  Just check out what Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson recently told 60 Minutes

It was in a televised chat with Lesley Stahl of “60 Minutes” that he admitted there may not be as much oversight of those who trained and fought with terrorists as some people would like.

Stahl asked: “As I understand it, of the 180 Americans who have gone overseas to fight in Iraq and Syria, 40 have come back. I assume you’re keeping close tabs on those 40?”

Said Johnson: “We have, in fact, kept close tabs on those who we believe have left and those who’ve come back. A number have been arrested or investigated, and we have systems in place to track these individuals.

“But you can’t know everything.”

All of this is happening despite the fact that ISIS is threatening a massive wave of terror attacks inside this country.

They even have a hashtag on Twitter for this campaign.  It is “#WeWillBurnUSAgain”, and it has already been used more than 15,000 times.

A video that was released in conjunction with this campaign sounds quite ominous

“America thinks it’s safe because of the geographical location,” its voiceover says. “Thus you see it invades Muslim lands, and thinks that the army of jihad won’t reach in their lands.

“But the dream of Americans to have safety became a mirage.”

If I was in the White House, I would be inclined to take this sort of thing quite seriously.

But instead, the Obama administration continues to be obsessed with the “threat” from “right-wing extremists”.  For example, a recent National Guard exercise featured role players that posed as “sovereign citizens” and chanted right-wing rhetoric

The exercise, which Infowars reporters were barred from attending, took place in Richmond this past weekend and involved more than 200 soldiers, airmen, local law enforcement and firefighting personnel.

Footage captured by a local shows Guard troops pushing irate citizens away with batons before one of the protest group states, “I’m a sovereign citizen, I refuse to recognize you guys, I refuse to recognize you.”

“Why in the course of a drill for a dirty bomb, would an actor claim to be a sovereign citizen?” asks Keith Johnson, who filmed the footage. “The San Francisco Bay Area is not known for it’s sovereign citizen militia population and hearing this shouted during a mock terrorist scenario was disturbing. Anybody familiar with Richmond will tell you it is not a rural ‘militia’ environment. Located in the East Bay Area near Oakland, it is a community with reduced circumstances. No one there is going to be proclaiming to be a sovereign citizen.”

And of course this is far from an isolated incident.
