Discovered: The Reason Why The Blood Moons Are Here? (VIDEO)

blood moon

By now many of you are aware of the “heavenly sign” known as the Blood Moon Tetrad. If not, the Blood Moon Tetrad is a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses (blood colored moons) coinciding on Jewish Holidays with six full moons in between. They began April 2014 and end September 28, 2015. Many biblical scholars believe that Acts 2:20 reveals this is one of the signs that will happen “before the great and noble coming of the Lord.”

Much speculation has risen as to why these blood moons have arrived, and history tells us that each time a blood moon tetrad has arrived a major event transpired either a year or two after or before a Tetrad.  With this in mind I believe I might have uncovered the reason why they have arrived in our generation.

Obama, the United Nations, and the Vatican are all planning on forcing Israel to agree to their terms sometime this year, or else go to war. There are two critical treaties that are being tabled for Israel at this very moment. Obama has one and the United Nation has one as well, which both fit perfectly together. Once you hear the link between these two treaties, you’ll be floored by where we are really headed. We could be looking at the reason the blood moons have arrived! Please don’t miss this breaking prophetic report…

Chicago Gangster – Obama The Tyrant

Trotsky_Rahm_Book_Gangsters

**From where he came to what he has become.

Gangster: a member of an organized gang of criminals, especially those “bad boys: who resorts to violence!

Chicago’s claim of infamy – their gangster culture – deeply embedded in their political style of ruthlessness is exemplified in Barack Obama. Violence, lies, sleaze, extortion and intimidation are the tools of the trade. Politics may appear to be more benign than the Valentine Massacre to the unsophisticated, but the reality is that the government arena is far more corrupt than any of the most egregious deeds of the Chicago Outfit. Brush up on your current events and Chicago history. The laundry list of crooked Ward and Aldermen fit the soldier model of the crime family. The latest Godfather, Rahm Emmanuel is the “Greasy Thumb” Guzik bagman for the Obama syndicate.

Denying the perverse nature of the Obama administration requires a total disconnect from facts and veracity. Explaining this says more about the dependency culture than about old time morals and values of an independent nation.

Bring back to life, the reliable Cook County voting deceased block, on a national level is a very real prospect, when the gangster machine applies their strong-arm techniques to the ballot box. Not to place much reliance in the electoral process, which is controlled by two branches of the same establishment, the overt fixing of the presidential cycle by the lackeys in the mainstream media is reminiscent of the press coverage given to the Al Capone free soup kitchens.

The Democrat/Republican dialectic political party racket has proven that voters rarely if ever have a true choice on Election Day. The result of this travesty is that successive administrations become engrained in the art of expanding their outlaw enterprises. The crop of Obama confederates includes some well-known names. Obama’s cadre of advisers provides some individual rap sheets on Valerie Jarrett, Cass Sunstein, Van Jones, David Axelrod, David Wilhelm, William Daley, Marty Nesbitt and Austan Goolsbee. The protection assigned to such offenders of the rule of law, demonstrates that they are part of the real untouchables.

When government incorporates and perfects an underworld culture and consorts with such infamous associates as Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich, you get the Chicago style dish of political indigestion.

Obama Gangster Katie Pavlich writes in Town Hall, Exposing Obama’s Criminal Friends:

“Team Obama has a habit of getting their money from people accused of fraud. Corzine is one, Shervin Neman is another. Neman has visited the White House at least 8 times.

Another Obama bundler, Abake Assongba, is accused of defrauding a businessman out of $657,000. At this point, Assongba has raked in $50,000 for Obama’s re-election campaign.”

Stalin’s Henchmen and key characters at the Court of the Red Tsar – Mikoyan, Kaganovich, Kirov, Yagoda, Molotov, Voroshilov, Sergo – shares the same traits of the enablers of the Soviet despotic regime with the Chicago mobsters. While in some circles, it is not popular to make such comparisons, the actual pattern of deceit and authoritarian brute force is consistent with their methods. The “Reds” loved to paint the American form of governance as a gangster government. Such claims condemned as blatant propaganda, seldom gained traction in the public consciousness. However, upon a detailed examination, the linkage of the “communist cousins” reveals a common birth.

It is crucial to discard the canard that totalitarian governments are different because of an appearance of dissimilar rhetoric. Obama is an avowed Marxist, not only in class warfare, but especially in his seizure of the reins of undemocratic power by his actions. The inescapable abuse of executive privilege, favored exemptions and selective application of public policy, demonstrates his affinity with the teachings of his mentor, Frank Marshall Davis.

Niall Kilkenny makes the astounding claim that Davis was not all he seemed to be.

“Sometime between 1927 and 1948, Frank Marshall Davis was recruited as a special agent or informer for the FBI—Federal Bureau of Inquisition. As a newspaperman, Davis had the perfect opportunity to know what was happening in Chicago. As a left wing or “Communist” sympathizer, no one would suspect him of association with the ultra right wing FBI.”

The Telegraph reports in, Frank Marshall Davis, alleged Communist, was early influence on Barack Obama.

“Although identified only as Frank in Mr Obama’s memoir Dreams from My Father, it has now been established that he was Frank Marshall Davis, a radical activist and journalist who had been suspected of being a member of the Communist Party in the 1950s.”

How could such a dramatic seemingly contradiction be reconciled? Dreams from My Real Father provides the following viewpoint.

“The FBI had Davis under investigation or surveillance for 19 years, compiling a 600-page FBI file. He was on the FBI’s ‘Security Index A’, meaning he would be arrested in the event of national emergency.

Frank Marshall Davis joined the Communist Party and began writing for The Chicago Star. He was a colleague of journalist Vernon Jarrett, father-in-law of Obama confidant Valerie Jarrett.

CPUSA assigned Frank Marshall Davis to Honolulu where he began writing for the Communist Newspaper, the Honolulu Record in 1948. In his columns, Davis flawlessly mirrored official Soviet propaganda – he blamed American capitalism for starting World War II, denounced the Marshall Plan, preached wealth redistribution, nationalization of industry and government healthcare, while bashing Wall Street. Davis also helped organize the Communist controlled ILWU (union) in a failed effort to take over the Hawaiian government in 1949. The Hawaii NAACP chapter complained to its national office, “Comrade Frank Marshall Davis suddenly appeared on the scene to propagandize the membership with the purpose of converting it into a front for the Stalinist line.” In 1956, Davis was subpoenaed by the Senate Subcommittee on Un-American Activities and pleaded the fifth.”

The point of Davis’ relationship with the FBI clouds the emphatic influence he had on the political leanings of the future POTUS. Obama has all the signs of being the “Manchurian Candidate” for the ultimate manipulators of the phony Hegelian differences that are at odds between the Communism and Capitalism systems. The literal reality is that both models have become puppets and are under the control of the globalist banksters. This certainty eludes most observers of the power politics charade.

The tyrannical practices of gangsters are common across the planet. The only difference is that the flair of repression shown in the “Windy City” is excused as being home- grown by the guardians of the establishment Wall Street oligarchy. The domestic pressitute media makes Pravda look like the bastion of investigative reporting.

Obama remains unfailing to his African roots. He operates under the Charles Taylor warlord manikin. He seeks to mirror the iron fist rule of Sekou Toure and employs the same oppressive tactics as Mobutu Sese Seko. His goal is to turn Amerika into a Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe paradise. Marxists; whether African, Soviet, European or American spawn, all share the same fascist distain for their own citizens. The soaring platitudes of comrade ideology coupled with the brutal coercion of compliance, causes vast worldwide suffering. The Obama version of socialism is nothing but a diversion from the true objective, a complete integration into a global gulag.

The collectivists are essentially gangsters. The “Community Organizer” is fundamentally a tyrant. His mobster origins are on display with every unconstitutional action he takes. He is turning the land of the free into the territory of the damned. With all the ranting and phony rage against the rich, he continues to take his marching orders from the Wall Street crime syndicate commission. Much of the muscle utilized by the titans of finance, comes from the LaSalle branch; namely, the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT).

The American public is so deceived into accepting that State/Capitalism is equivalent with free enterprise that they falsely defend the crimes of international finance. Without intense outrage against the diabolical alliance of the street thugs and the suite robbers, the fate of the country will succumb to the demands of “boss politics”.

Remember that Chicago and Illinois are terminally broke. The kickbacks and bribes paid to grease the palms of the politicos is a framework that will be implemented with even greater intensity in a second Obama administration. Do not hold your breath for a modern day Elliot Ness to bring the bad guys to justice. The courts are all fixed, in the fine tradition of “Beirut by the Lake”. Chi-Town values now apply to the entire political process.

The frustration of voting public must galvanize into a national movement to restore self-respect. The bully campaign that the Obama surrogates spew is only topped with the congenial lies out of the mouth of the arrogant “tinhorn” dictator. Apologies to the “chairman of the board”, Sinatra – sing a different tune.

This is my kind of town, Chicago is

My kind of town, Chicago is

My kind of people, too

Even your “Second City” mob cronies have to have second thoughts about Barack Obama.

The History Tyrants Have Learned From America’s Forefathers! (VIDEOS)

resist tyranny

“History repeats itself, and that’s one thing wrong with history. Or right with history!”

I thought it was very telling this past week that the President of the United States thought it necessary to further fortify himself against the people he serves by putting spikes on the posts around the people’s White House.

On a daily basis, we in America are inundated with the magnification of the crimes that are committed by the despots who are supposed to represent us (Numbers 32:23). Yet, if he were serving in the manner that he should be serving, he, like the presidents of the past, could actually walk up and down the streets shaking the hands of those he represents without fear of reprisal.

It is becoming more apparent in this country that the people are sick and tired of being sick and tired. They are becoming more resolute in the lawful action that they would like taken concerning the crimes of this administration. Without a doubt, the tone is definitely changing.

But why are we here? Often, I have to ask myself how it is that a population of 315 million people can stand back or stand down in the face a small group of corrupt individuals who mean to destroy the country in which we live. History has taught us that many of these small groups of corrupt people actually get away with it, at least for a short while.

In America, the president only becomes tyrannical through deception when those he serves are rebels to their own principles (Hosea 4:6). After all, the history of tyrants occurs when a people are disobedient toward God. So, why has America allowed all of the evil?

“Ah Lord God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee: Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the Lord of hosts, is his name, Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings: Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day, and in Israel, and among other men; and hast made thee a name, as at this day; And hast brought forth thy people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs, and with wonders, and with a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with great terror; And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey; And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them.” (Jeremiah 32:17-23)

But what happens when people obey God and resist the tyrant? Take a look around. Two hundred and thirty-nine years later we are all here to tell others about it. Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.” –President John Adams, President Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, which is a document declaring the grievances of the tyrant King George, our forefathers established their separation with England with these words:

Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and of right to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved. That it is expedient forthwith to take the most effectual measures for forming foreign Alliances. That a plan of confederation be prepared and transmitted to the respective Colonies for their consideration and approbation.

Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman and Robert Livingston were all on the committee assigned to draft the text of the Declaration.

Three of the five were also assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. It declared, “Rebellion to Tyrants is obedience to God.”

Benjamin Franklin’s proposal is preserved in a note in his own handwriting:

Moses standing on the Shore, and extending his Hand over the Sea, thereby causing the same to overwhelm Pharaoh who is sitting in an open Chariot, a Crown on his Head and a Sword in his Hand. Rays from a Pillar of Fire in the Clouds reaching to Moses, to express that he acts by Command of the Deity. “Motto, Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God.”

John Adams later described Jefferson’s depiction of the Great Seal:

“Mr. Jefferson proposed: The children of Israel in the wilderness, led by a pillar of cloud by day, and a pillar of fire by night, and on the other side Hengist and Horsa, the Saxon chiefs, from whom we claim the honour of being descended and whose political principles and form of government we have assumed.”

More often than not, we hear about how if we do not learn from history, then history will repeat itself as a negative rather than as a positive. Therefore, I conclude that when it comes to what our forefathers have established, it is one portion of history which we want to repeat.

Life In Donetsk: Resilient Despite Obama’s Continuing Proxy War

Central Donetsk City (Roger Annis)

Central Donetsk City (Roger Annis)

Obama’s dirty war of aggression using Ukrainian and imported mercenary forces continues against Donbass residents rejecting fascism – wanting democratic rights everyone deserves.

Since conflict began in April 2014, Kiev’s junta regime committed major war crimes. Russia’s Investigative Committee (IC) is set to submit hard evidence to international courts, according to its spokesman Vladimir Markin.

“All the evidence that we have collected has been included in more than 2,500 volumes of a criminal case. And the Investigative Committee is ready to hand over these materials to any international court,” he said.

Russia’s IC will continue its investigation on whether other junta war crimes were committed. Despite months of devastating conflict, life in Donetsk remains resilient.

It’s Ukraine’s fifth largest city – an industrial one with nearly a million people. The metropolitan area has over two million. A local unnamed resident describes conditions saying they’re “stable.”

“The city is alive. It’s very clean, decorated (and) roads are being repaired,” he said. Fresh surfacing is everywhere. Ads provide information on “important city events and happenings.”

“Maybe not a million roses are blooming but definitely 500,000.” Junta shelling continues in some areas. Their residents struggle to endure and survive.

Schools at all levels operate normally. Graduates get DPR (Donetsk People’s Republic) certificates and free transportation to Rostov to take Unified State Exams for admission into tuition-free Russian universities.

Youths from local colleges need only DPR certificates and acceptable entrance exam results.

Healthcare is readily available for anyone needing it – thanks to Russian humanitarian aid. It’s an essential lifeline given Kiev’s economic blockade.

Thirty-one humanitarian convoys delivered essential to life supplies – including food, medicines and medical equipment.

Russia’s Emergencies Ministry said a 32nd convoy will depart for Donetsk and Lugansk from the Noginsk rescue center on July 16. Since last August, Moscow delivered nearly 40,000 tons of essential supplies.

Washington supplied NOTHING. The world’s richest country and lead belligerent wants Donbass residents isolated, attacked, starved and deprived of vital medical care – a testimony to US ruthlessness.

Half of Donetsk’s pharmacies are closed. The others have Russian supplied medicines and related items. “City transit works like clockwork,” said the resident. It operates well despite insufficient gasoline availability.

No military equipment is seen on streets – except an occasional camouflaged vehicle or truck. Supermarkets, other shops, restaurants and theaters operate normally.

“You can get anything you want at (city) markets,” the resident said. He found his favorite yogurt. At the same time, economic blockade remains a major problem – like Leningrad’s siege during WW II except for life-saving Russian humanitarian aid.

“Everything is more expensive” – food two to threefold higher than pre-war. The problem is wages and pensions haven’t kept up with prices.

They’re paid on time with “no arrears.” Ukrainian hryvnias were used until April. Now it’s Russian rubles. In May, healthcare workers were paid in dollars.

Internet service operates normally – including free wi-fi in public places and all institutions. Five local television channels are available plus Russian ones and others. Satellite connections offer more.

Kiev sometimes cuts off cell phone service. Not all businesses operate. Economic blockade prevents imports and exports.

Donbass freedom fighters developed into a well-trained, well-equipped army – a capable self-defense force outmatching Kiev’s military. No Russian soldiers are involved.

City residents trust government officials. They’re polar opposite Kiev’s fascist regime. A state of war exists with no end in sight.

“If the shelling were to stop, everything would be fine,” said the resident. “So we live on and hope.”

Washington’s February 2014 coup transformed Ukraine into a fascist police state geopolitical battleground in Europe’s heartland.

It’s a platform for possible US-dominated NATO nuclear war on Russia or America acting unilaterally. Lunatics in Washington want regime change. They want Western puppet leadership replacing Putin.

They want Russia ravaged and destroyed like all other countries America attacks. They want control of its vast land mass, balkanized for easier control. They want its resources plundered, its people exploited, a dystopian wasteland used for profit.

On July 15, Obama’s Ukraine coup team point person Victoria Nuland arrives back in Kiev to meet with officials Washington installed. The State Department says she’s coming “to discuss a range of bilateral and regional issues” – code language for continued US-supported aggression on Donbass, prelude perhaps to direct confrontation with Russia.

Obama Declares Permanent War On Humanity

obama

Obama heads Washington’s lunatic fringe – a criminal gang waging endless wars, deploring peace, and pursuing phony war on terrorism to advance their imperial aims while at the same time threatening humanity’s survival.

Flanked by Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, Joint Chiefs Chairman General Martin Dempsey and other top Pentagon warriors on Monday, Obama underscored his permanent war agenda, saying “(t)his will not be quick. This is a longterm campaign…generational,” he stressed.

“ISIL is opportunistic and it is nimble…It will take time to root them out” – especially when plans call for continued support, not defeating them.

So-called counterterrorism efforts to degrade and defeat their forces and other takfiris is a ruse – a thinly veiled scheme for endless wars against invented enemies, recruiting, arming, funding, training and using them as US proxy foot soldiers against nations it wants ravaged and destroyed.

Claiming “progress” against the Islamic State contradicts reality. Endless wars rage in multiple theaters. More are planned.

US terror bombing in Syria and Iraq aims to destroy their infrastructure, topple Assad, replace him with a US-controlled puppet, and balkanize both countries for easier control.

Saying America “will never be at war with Islam,” belies Obama’s imperial campaign against Muslim countries since day one in office.

A previous article discussed possible Turkish invasion of Syria to establish a northern buffer zone bordering both countries. Jordan may have the same thing in mind in southern Syria.

Israel wants more Syrian land on the phony pretext of protecting its Golan area Druze population – at the same time it’s supporting takfiris threatening them, part of its campaign to oust Assad.

Over 3,000 US combat troops are in Iraq. After deploying another 450, Obama suggested more may come.

US military spending matches or exceeds the rest of the world combined at a time America’s only enemies are ones it invents – to be “prepared for future threats,” Obama blustered.

One Iraq war of aggression wasn’t enough for neocon/unindicted war criminal Tony Blair. Earlier he urged another one based on a similar litany of Big Lies proliferated before invasion in 2003.

Washington hawks want greater war. Presidential aspirant Senator Lindsey Graham (R. SC) called for sending 10,000 US troops to Iraq. Others in Congress want more.

Neocon Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R. AZ) wants US intervention everywhere – especially more US troops in Iraq and deploying them in Syria.

Earlier he accused Obama of having “no coherent (regional) strategy” – too few wars he wants more of, not enough chaos and disorder to justify them.

Obama’s strategy to restore regional peace and stability is endless wars, more military spending at the expense of vital homeland needs, and harsh crackdowns on homeland dissent.

As long as America is run by rogue warrior leaders and congressional hawks, world peace will be up for grabs. Never before was it threatened more than now.

Barack Obama Promises That Events In Greece And Puerto Rico Will Not Cause A Global Financial Crisis

obama

Barack Obama says that we shouldn’t be alarmed by what is happening over in Greece.  On Tuesday, he told reporters that this “is an issue primarily of concern to Europe” and that “I think the markets have properly factored in the risks involved“.  And apparently Obama is not too concerned about the debt crisis in Puerto Rico either.  In fact, the Obama administration has already completely ruled out any sort of federal bailout for the island.  Barack Obama is assuring us that everything is going to be just fine and that we are not headed for another global financial crisis.  So is he correct?  

I had to smile when I saw a Politico article today with the following headline: “Barack Obama on Greece: meh“.  While admitting that this crisis is likely to be “very painful for the Greek people”, Obama just doesn’t seem to be impressed by the threat that this crisis poses to the global financial system as a whole

President Barack Obama downplayed the threat that Greece’s debt crisis poses to the American economy, saying that the Hellenic Republic’s problems would create more woes for the European continent than the United States.

In layman’s terms, for the American people, this is not something we believe will have a major shock to the system, but obviously it’s very painful for the Greek people, and it can have a significant effect on growth rates in Europe,” which can “have a dampening effect” on global economy, the president told reporters during a joint press conference with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.

And Obama also told reporters that he is working with authorities over in Europe to make sure that any “bumps that occur” along the way are “smoothed out”

But should there be a so-called Grexit — or Greek exit from the European financial community — Obama added that “it is important for us that we plan for any contingency, that we work with the ECB and other international institutions to ensure that some of the bumps that occur in the financial markets are smoothed out.”

So should we trust Obama?

Do the authorities actually have everything under control?

On Tuesday, Greece became the first developed nation in decades to miss a debt payment to the IMF.  A referendum on the latest creditor proposals is scheduled in Greece for Sunday, but the government is already urging citizens to vote no.  But a no vote would almost certainly result in any future aid from the EU and the IMF being cut off, and it would also probably mean that Greece will have to leave the euro.

Meanwhile, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that there will be “no new talks” with Greece until after the referendum on Sunday, and she sounds like she definitely is not in the mood to offer the Greeks any new concessions.  The following comes from Bloomberg

Merkel and Hollande, who have repeatedly said they want to hold the euro together, gave the Greek premier no leeway after he broke off negotiations over future bailout aid. Hollande suggested the referendum would determine whether Greece could stay in the 19-nation euro area, while Merkel said Europe’s credibility was at stake with its response.

If the euro fails, Europe will fail,” Merkel said in a speech in Berlin. “That’s why we have to fight for these principles. We could maybe set them aside in the short term. We could maybe say we’ll just give in. But I say: in the medium and long term, we will suffer damage that way.”

Do you understand what she is saying?

Merkel knows that Italy, Spain, France and a bunch of other eurozone members are going down the exact same path that Greece has gone.

And any deal that Greece gets now will set a precedent for future negotiations with other troubled eurozone members.

So Merkel is attempting to draw a line in the sand.  But in the process, she may end up forcing Greece out of the eurozone entirely.

At this point, the odds of a deal with Greece seem so remote that many analysts are actually projecting that a “Grexit” is imminent

A Greek exit has become our base case, which means the risk premia for holding European assets are going to increase,” Hans Redeker, global head of currency strategy at Morgan Stanley, told Bloomberg News. “The European Central Bank will have to act against that.”

The Greek government continues to come up with new proposals for resolving this crisis at the last moment, but nothing seems to be working.  The following is an excerpt from a USA Today article about the bailout request that Greece submitted on Tuesday…

Greece requested a third bailout from the eurozone Tuesday in a last-ditch effort to secure a debt deal before its financial-crisis-era bailout expires and it defaults on a loan from the International Monetary Fund, one of its three international creditors.

The two-year deal, if accepted, would allow Athens a new bailout from the eurozone’s European Stability Mechanism, its $560 billion rescue fund.

As European finance ministers met Tuesday to discuss the proposal, thousands of Greeks took to the streets of Athens, many of them in support of accepting new bailout terms.

Unfortunately for the Greeks, the reaction to that proposal was tepid at best.  One journalist even stated that it looked “more like a dodgy ransom note than a loan application“.

So at this point it looks like nothing is going to get done by this weekend.

We will just await the results of the referendum and go from there.

Even though Greece missed the debt payment that was due on Tuesday, the IMF says that it will give Greece a 30 day grace period before issuing a notice of technical default.

And of course even if Greece did scrape together enough cash for this debt payment, an even larger debt payment is scheduled for next month.  On July 20th, the Greeks are supposed to hand over a payment worth approximately 3.9 billion dollars to the ECB.  Without a handout from someone, the Greeks don’t have a prayer of making that payment either.

Sadly, Greece is not an isolated case.  For example, the Italian economy has contracted by a total of 10 percent since 2008, and its debt to GDP ratio has shot up to 135 percent.  Spain and France find themselves in similar situations.

It is only a matter of time until Italy, Spain and France need the same kind of assistance that Greece has been getting, and they have far larger economies than Greece does.

And let us not forget that thanks to Barack Obama, U.S. debt is on almost the exact same trajectory as Greek debt.  The entire planet is absolutely drowning in debt, and what is happening in Greece and Puerto Rico right now is just a preview of coming attractions.

But Obama insists that we are not heading into a global financial crisis.

He promises that everything is going to be just fine and that we don’t have anything to be concerned about.

Obama’s 19 Secret “Laws” That You Have to Obey: Directives You’re Not Allowed To See, Yet! (VIDEO)

obama

“…Presidential Decision Directives (or PDDs) are a form of an executive order issued by the President of the United States with the advice and consent of the National Security Council. The directives articulate the executive’s national security policy and carry the “full force and effect of law”. Since many of the Presidential Directives pertain to the national security of the United States, many remain classified.” Wikipedia

Secret laws of the land that remain classified? While that may seem tyrannical and a bit sci-fi, that is exactly what is happening here in America. In fact these directives were set into motion in 1947 with President Truman and since Obama took office in 2008, he has issued at total of 30 PPD’s, 19 of which remain classified and are kept secret not only from the American public but also from Congress. They can harbor information on cybersecurity, nuclear weapons, space policy, civil breakdown, and plans for the government in case of disaster.

These directives are demolishing the very foundation of our Constitution and granting Obama the power of a tyrant.  Here is the breaking report, please don’t miss this!

The Enemy Within Is Now Setting The Narrative

 obama

“What good fortune for governments that the people do not think.” – Adolf Hitler

America was warned by the Department of Homeland Security that there was a potential for Islamic terror attacks on the 4th of July.  Additionally, a “chilling new map” reveals where the FBI is preparing for the Islamic State to strike.

The DHS and FBI even recently posted a map where they would set up command posts within the United States so you can report things you may find suspicious. Or do they mean so they can find them that are willing to come forward to be informants? Apparently, there are those among us who are more than willing to be useful to their own demise.  What, will the enemies not see this post?  How ridiculously obvious can this get before America awakens to who her real enemies are? Keep in mind that DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson stated that it was his job to “give voice to the plight of the Muslims.”  It’s the same department to which Barack Hussein Obama has appointed Muslims with terrorist ties to oversee the American people (Deuteronomy 28:36; Jeremiah 5:6). This administration has been involved in funding, training, supplying and even entertaining America’s sworn enemies people’s White House. Don’t forget that Barrack Hussein Obama has sued governors in the United States for upholding border control laws and acted outside of his constitutional authority by opening up the floodgates to illegals coming in on the southern border. His administration has released tens of thousands of illegal immigrant felons from American prisons onto the streets only to prey upon the innocent. Furthermore, he’s granted asylum to Muslims from Syria to colonize by the thousands in American cities while attacking America’s military, America’s Christians and Constitutional Patriots (Deuteronomy 28:52).

He’s even gone so far as to force the US military to submit to the sharia during Ramadan.

We now have over 1,063 documented transgressions concerning this president’s treason, corruption, lies and lawlessness. Article 2, Section 4 of The United States Constitution says that he should have been impeached for one simple misdemeanor.

The Obama administration has been exposed for scandal after scandal, including:

Do not forget about the race card that has been played over and over again in an attempt to divide and conquer by stirring up domestic insurrection.

You can get people to do anything with the use of fear.” -Congressman Jim McDermott after September 11, 2001

What is it that Americans need before they lawfully respond to the crimes of this administration? (Article 2, Section 4 United States Constitution; Isaiah 51:4) As it stands now, you are being conditioned for another attack and that from a foreign enemy.

Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future. –Adolph Hitler

Remember what Condoleeza Rice said of Joseph Stalin? “Terror was the creation to mold politically the control that they wanted.” Who has attacked America more in the wake of September 11, 2001 than the corrupt in your government? (Leviticus 26:16)

Yet, America, we were warned from the 4th President of the United States, “If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” -Abraham Lincoln

Also, former French military intelligence agent Pierre-Henry Bunel wrote in the April/June 2004 edition of World Affairs:

“The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the ‘TV watcher’ to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US and the lobbyists for the US war on terrorism are only interested in making money.”

So, I ask America, who is the enemy? (Leviticus 26:14-46; Deuteronomy 28:63) The Obama Administration says it’s you, but the truth is the exact opposite.

Since September 11, 2001, the federal government has asked the American people to give up the rights that God has given, which her sons and daughters, in the hundreds of thousands, have fought, bled and died to secure. (John 15:13) This current administration, along with The Bush administration, has done more to destroy this country than any foreign country could have dreamed of doing by attacking us. The unconstitutional Patriot Act, the Transportation Security Administration and other unconstitutional departments and bureaus have been contrived to strip the American people of their God-given rights (Article 4 of the Bill of Rights). And that is the fruit!

Why, in a state of terror threats, is this administration attempting to disarm you? A foreign government could only have dreamed of getting this far in America (Jeremiah 21:4; Article 2 Bill of Rights). And all of this has been done in the light of day (Jeremiah 5:21-22). Who is profiting from the use of terror? Who is asking you to give up your rights? You would think with all of these new bureaucracies that are now in place that we would not have a thing to worry about. Yet, more fear is the narrative pushed at every given turn.

Even the IRS targeting of Conservative groups. Pretty telling.

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

obama

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.

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.
