Erick Erickson Really Has Come Around

Erick Erickson

Erick Erickson

Some time ago we noted in a post here that Erickson, head of the blog Red State, had turned right. For years he has been an apologist for Barack Obama. This summer he seems to have seen the reality of what Obama is doing to the United States and the world.

Today He has a very stong column that is titled ‘How Many Will Die?’. In it he predicts World War Three.

In six years in the White House, Barack Obama has fought more vigorously in rhetoric against Republicans than those who threaten the United States abroad. One could hardly be surprised if tomorrow he declared war on Ferguson, MO while sending John Kerry to negotiate a peace treaty with ISIS.

Our border is not secured, our allies no longer wish to bring us in to help in their plans, and our enemies are salivating at the thought of taking territory with no one to stop them.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama is peeing sitting down.

The death toll from a world at war and terrorists on the march over the next decade will be far higher than it would have been had Barack Obama never held the Presidency. It is not just that we now have citizens and companies fleeing the nation for greener pastures, more and more Americans see the nation in decline.”

Welcome to the Real Revo, Erick.

Thursday at the daily briefing, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf declined to acknowledge ISIS’ declaration of war with the Untied States of America.

When a reporter said,”The reality is ISIS has announced it’s in a war against America,” adding, “Right or wrong that is what they are saying.”

Harf replied, “Well, they can say whatever they’d like, but what I am making clear is that’s not what ISIL represents. And they don’t represent any religion. They are at war with everybody they come into contact with.”

CBC Wants Federal Control Of Local Police

elijah_cummings_gty_605-550x298

The Congressional Black Caucus wants President Obama to appoint a ‘Police Czar’. They say they want to prevent ‘More Ferguson’s’. That could mean that they want looting stopped but I take that to mean they want a task force to prevent young black men from getting shot by white cops.

Speaking for the CBC, Rep. Elijah Cummings believes that this utopia can be attained if only the federal government is given just a little more control over Americans.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, along with other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, sent a letter Monday to President Barack Obama, urging the administration to pursue changes to local law enforcement structure to “prevent more Fergusons,” including a federal czar to oversee local law enforcement.

“The administration must quickly establish a national commission to review existing police policies and practices,” the letter reads. “And identify the best policies and practices that can prevent more Fergusons and vastly improve policing in communities across the nation.”

In addition to the commission, the letter calls for the appointment of a federal czar within the Justice Department to monitor and oversee local police departments that receive federal funding.”

OK. Now I understand. They want this oversight under the control of the Department of Justice whose head is Eric Holder.

Bad idea… as a matter of fact it’s a terrible idea. Holder has shown himself to be uninterested in justice. He is a revolutionary whose focus is on control. That is not American.

CBS: “Chicago A Top Terror Target”

This is from CBSChicago:

CHICAGO (CBS) — Over the past six years, Chicago has become a top potential target for international terrorists, a top security expert said Friday, making the posting of a veiled threat by Islamic radicals on Twitter a higher cause for concern.

ISIS threat

“Many terror organizations refer to Chicago as Obama Town,” said CBS 2 security expert Ross Rice, a former FBI agent in Chicago. Under President Obama, the U.S. took out Osama bin Laden, and used repeated drone strikes to weaken terror networks.”

The two images in the tweet above are the Old Republic Building, 307 N. Michigan Ave., in Chicago and the White House.

Obama Appoints New ‘Negro Czar’

Obama ‘Trusts’ Sharpton. Why is he a ‘Negro Czar’ and not a ‘Minority Czar’? It’s simple. Sharpton claims to represent minorities but actually only notices things that happen to black people. Has anyone ever seen him support a Native American or an Asian American? How about Latinos? Nope. His focus is laser like on black issues.

‘Black Czar’ or ‘African American Czar’ are clumsy and can be misleading. ‘Negro Czar’ it is – like the United Negro College Fund.

This is from Politico Magazine:

140821_thrush_sharpton_gty

I’ve known Al since he was 12 years old, and he’s arrived at the level he always wanted to arrive at, which is gratifying,” the Rev. Jesse Jackson, a colleague and sometimes rival, told me. “He’s the man who’s the liaison to the White House, he’s the one who’s talking to the Justice Department.”

Sharpton has a history. Even the Politico writer relates it:

During the 1991 Crown Heights riots in Brooklyn, Sharpton stoked black rage after a Hasidic Jewish driver killed a young boy with his car. At the child’s funeral, Sharpton railed against Jewish “diamond merchants” who bought their wares from apartheid South Africa, then ran down black kids in Brooklyn. There was his much-mocked stint as an FBI informer in the 1980s.”

Sharpton does not have the best interests of the country nor the black community close to his heart. That must be why Barack Obama is so close with him.

14,646 duplicate voters flagged in Virginia, Maryland

ACORN may have been broken up but this is their legacy and it lives on. Remember when ACORN was paying people to register voters? Those people registered the same voter many times – as many as 72 times has been documented. Allk those registrations are still on the books. It’s no wonder the Obama administration is opposed to requiring photo ID to vote. That step could undo the fraud.

An election-watch group says 14,646 people hold voter registrations in Maryland and in Fairfax County, Va.

An election-integrity group is challenging the status of nearly 15,000 voters reportedly registered in both Fairfax County and Maryland.

Virginia Voters Alliance on Wednesday urged Fairfax’s electoral board to do what state officials have so far not done across the commonwealth: Purge those duplicate voters.

VVA President Reagan George complained the state Department of Elections is classifying all duplicate registrations as “inactive voters.”

That means 43,896 voters alleged to be registered in both Virginia and Maryland would stay in Virginia’s statewide database — and remain eligible to vote — until 2019.”

Israel PM Netanyahu: “ISIS Is Hamas. Hamas Is ISIS”

This is especially timely since yesterday our Secretary of Defense told us that ISIS (ISIL inside the beltway) is the most dangerous foe the US has faced. He said we are in as much danger as we were on September 10, 2001.

This may explain a little more of what the civilized world is facing. The worst part is the non-reaction of President Obama. No, Non-reaction is not quite right. More correct is, “… the fact that President Obama supports ISIS and Hamas and opposes Israel.

Ominous: “Holder: ‘Change is coming’ after Ferguson police shooting”

What does this lizard mean? “Change is coming”?

HOLDER_POLICE_SHOOTING_MISSOURI_48304171

Attorney General Eric Holder sought Wednesday to reassure the people of Ferguson about the investigation into Michael Brown’s death and said he understands why many black Americans do not trust police, recalling how he was repeatedly stopped by officers who seemed to target him because of his race.

Holder made the remarks during a visit to the St. Louis suburb that has endured more than a week of unrest fueled by the fatal shooting of the black 18-year-old by a white officer. The Obama administration intended the trip to underscore its commitment to civil rights in general and the Ferguson case in particular.

The attorney general described how he was stopped twice on the New Jersey Turnpike and accused of speeding. Police searched his car, going through the trunk and looking under the seats.

“I remember how humiliating that was and how angry I was and the impact it had on me,” Holder said during a meeting with about 50 community leaders at the Florissant campus of St. Louis Community College.”

Plan On Power Outages This Winter

Might want to get a wood stove. No, they are now illegal. How’bout a generator?

This isn’t about the promised, “Electric bills will necessarily skyrocket”. This is about really, significantly reduced capacity causing outages. It almost occurred this last winter. Now one-fourth of coal-fired power plants are being shut down.

cold weather

In order to comply with the new Obama era EPA regs, American Electric Power, which supplies a major portion of the electricity used on the east coast, will be closing almost one quarter of their coal fired plants between now and next June. This is because they were economically unable to come into compliance with the new regulations in the impossibly short window of opportunity offered by the EPA. This is going to reduce the total surge capacity available for some of our most densely populated areas just when we may get hit with weather related demand spikes beyond anyone’s control.

Having the power go out in the summer when you’re trying to run the air conditioning is bad enough. Losing heating when the temperatures head below zero for weeks on end is a recipe for disaster.”

For Five Years Obama Has Been Working To Make Congress Irrelevant…

… Now – “House Democrats can’t figure out why Obama won’t talk to them.

Duh. You are irrelevant to him.

From The Hill:

obama wry

House Democrats are frustrated with what they say is a lack of election-year communication from the White House.

The lawmakers say it’s difficult to defend President Obama from GOP attacks, when he doesn’t confer with his allies about his strategy and intentions.

Some are scratching their heads why, after nearly six years in office and a reshuffling of his legislative affairs team, Obama’s working relationship with Congress remains prickly.
“It’s hard for us to fathom; I mean, is it just lack of full staffing and resources? [Is it] professional commitment? Is it a disdain for the legislative branch? I mean, what is it?” asked Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.). “People like me want to be allies — I mean, I am an ally. So work with us, reach out to us; you know, we’re not the enemy.”

He doesn’t care about you or anyone else. You are a non-event. He has been demanding that Congress cede its authorities to him and you have done so.

Dan Went To A Lot Of Work To Assemble This List

Dan from Squirrel Hill says we can distribute this list if we give him credit. Follow this link to the original list.

“Here are 821 well sourced examples of Obama’s lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, hypocrisy, waste, etc.”

It’s quite a list. I don’t know anyone else with the patience to do this. Here are the first two:

1) Carried out military interventionism in Libya without Congressional approval

In June 2011, U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) said that Obama had violated the Constitution when he launched military operations in Libya without Congressional approval.

In April 2014, Ralph Nader said that Obama should be impeached for his actions in Libya.

2) Gave a no-bid contract to Halliburton cronies – just like Bush did

In May 2010, it was reported that the Obama administration had selected KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, for a no-bid contract worth as much as $568 million through 2011, just hours after the Justice Department had said it would pursue a lawsuit accusing the Houston-based company of using kickbacks to get foreign contracts.

Don’t be fooled by the words “former subsidiary.” These are the same Halliburton cronies that Bush gave a no-bid contract to.”

“If we don’t attack Isis, they will attack us”

islamic-state-of-iraq-and-al-shc481m-e2809cpictures-from-the-land-of-epic-battles-522_dvd.original-550x309

But we won’t.

This is from the UK Telegraph:

So that’s all right then. We can all relax, and go back to playing boules. The Yazidi are apparently off the mountain, there’s a nice new Iraqi prime minister in office, Isis have been stalled outside Irbil, and Hitler has agreed to watch the fifth Test match with an eye to mastering the rules of LBW.
Except, it’s not all right, is it. Because Isis (Or ISIL, or IS, or Nightmare on Arab Street, or whatever they lately call themselves) aren’t going to stop here. They are sucking in power, they possess a third of Syria and a third of Iraq, they are attracting hormonal, spotty, sex-deprived Islamist yoofs with an eye for a blonde Yazidi concubine from right across the world, they have tanks, missiles, $2 billion, an income of $3 million a day, and, most of all, they are utterly fanatical and they revel in their cruelty.

But for the moment, that is, merely, a prayer. And until that prayer comes true, the fact of the matter is this: we will have to attack Isis militarily, as the Prime Minister suggests, and try and destroy them – before they try and destroy us. And the longer we wait to strangle the snake, the bigger the snake becomes.”

Here Is The Real Story About The Michael Brown Robbery Video

Eric Holder’s Department of Justice told Ferguson Police To NOT Release the video

The video below, from the store’s surveillance cameras, allegedly shows Brown strong-arming the person at the store. It doesn’t justify his getting shot. More investigation needs to be done before the shooting can be classed as justified or unjustified.

The real, big, story is that the DOJ told the police to not release the video. What could have been their motive for making this demand?

The DOJ does not represent justice. They represent lies and distortions in the name of skin color.

Goldie Taylor is an MSNBC contributor who’s followed this case closely. She tries to spin it as evidence that the Ferguson police were acting rashly in releasing the video, but doesn’t it show that the Obama administration is trying to keep information away from the public?”

… The Department of Homeland Security is afraid of Anti-Government extremists.

DOCUMENT: HOMELAND SECURITY PREDICTS RISE OF ‘ANTI-GOVERNMENT’ VIOLENCE

A leaked document from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis predicts increased “anti-government violence over the next year.” The document says the inspiration for violence is Cliven Bundy’s Bunkerville standoff with the Bureau of Land Management from earlier in the year.

DHS’s seven-page report entitled Domestic Violent Extremists Pose a Threat to Government Officials and Law Enforcement points to the recent murders of two Las Vegas law enforcement officers as evidence that there is a “growing trend of anti-government violence compared to the previous four years and inspired by perceived government overreach and oppression” and the “perceived victory at Bunkervile” will “likely prompt more violence.”

“EPA Blames Texas For Illinois Air Pollution”

EPA Administratrix Gina McCarthy

EPA Administratrix Gina McCarthy

These federal agencies are out of control. The IRS has been targeting conservative groups, Homeland Security is doing everything it can to reduce security in the homeland, and the Environmental Protection Agency is trying to shut down every successful entity in the country. Now they are going after the state of Texas.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is blaming power plants in Texas for Illinois air pollution and is using the accusation to justify restrictions on Texas power plants. EPA claims its cross-state pollution rule, intended to protect communities in one state from pollution drifting from other states, justifies placing restrictions on Texas power plants EPA claims are polluting Granite City, Illinois.

EPA’s assertion Texas power plants are causing Illinois pollution raised eyebrows for several reasons. Granite City is approximately 500 miles from the Texas border and even farther away from Lone Star State major metropolitan regions. Granite City is northeast of Texas, with prevailing winds rarely trekking in that direction from Texas. In addition, a local steel mill, which has been an important source of the town’s prosperity since the 1890s, has long been recognized as a primary source of air pollution in Granite City.

EPA, however, claims it has devised computer models that indicate some sulfur dioxide from Texas power plants may reach Granite City, which has a population of 30,000.”

They have devised, “Computer models”. Again, the scientists have come up with a theory and then found, or manufactured, evidence to support their position. This is quite common in the environmental movement and their assertions are always wrong. This one is as well.

Texas was only included in portions of the rule based on the projected impact on a single county in Illinois. And the air quality monitor in Illinois which EPA claims had the fingerprints of Texas pollution on it was located right next to a smelter. On this thin legal reed the EPA is imposing restrictions on Texas several times as severe as states with much more significant interstate pollution problems,” said Kathleen White, director of the Armstrong Center for Energy and the Environment at Texas Public Policy Foundation.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) agreed, saying EPA failed to account properly for the steel mill’s influence on Granite City’s air pollution. Of the three air pollution monitors in the town and surrounding Madison County, the only one allegedly linked to Texas is the one downwind of the steel mill.”

Phony data from a flawed source. That’s typical of the environmentalists and the Obama administration in general.

Ferguson, MO. We Are Seeing A ‘Civilian Force As Well Equipped And As Well Funded As The Military’

President Obama called for it and we are seeing it.

The combination of the federal government giving local police forces military vehicles, equipment, and weapons has been a plan of his for years. Now we see the effects of it in the little town of Ferguson, Missouri.

The news today is filled with people expressing their uneasiness over the images of police they are seeing from Ferguson. Here is a report from ABC News. Here is another from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. And there are plenty of them. They are frightening. But mostly they are intimidating. Everyone is reacting to what they call the ‘Militarization of Police’. I’ll include a few images of the police in Ferguson.

ferguson police 01

ferguson police 02

ferguson police 03

Some of the images are reminiscent of our troops in the middle east.

ferguson police 04

ferguson police 05

Remember. This equipment has been distributed to hundreds of police forces across the country. It’s everywhere. And the cops are not getting the training they need.

Somewhere the police motto, “To Protect And Serve” has changed to “To Terrify And Intimidate”.

Missouri’s Governor Nixon has taken police control away from the local police and given it to the State Highway Patrol. Wall Street Journal has the story here.

How will that help? I just did a little search. It seems that the Missouri Highway Patrol has also become militarized. Here is a Bearcat that they own.

missouri hp bearcat

Americans are realizing that they are no longer safe from their ‘Protectors’. That is why the crowds are in the streets in Ferguson. It’s also why the news media and the people on the street are concerned about the police. After seeing images like we have been seeing and hearing stories from all across the country about officers shooting people and dogs with little or no provocation, it is not at all surprising that the people of Ferguson don’t believe the story of the cop who shot Michael Brown to death.

People are calling for the De-militarization of police forces. I support those people.

“Holder dispatches team that ‘inflamed’ Trayvon case”

He’s sending the aptly named CRS. In the Martin case they helped organize protests demanding conviction for Zimmerman. That is not blind justice. It is not justice at all. It is a perversion of the notion of ‘Justice’.

Holder’s definition of ‘Justice’ is not the same as the rest of America’s. He doesn’t want justice. He wants retribution.

holder drawing

Responding to news that the Justice Department has dispatched its Community Relations Service to the scene of racially charged unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, the head of the Washington watchdog group Judicial Watch says it’s time for a civil rights investigation of Attorney General Eric Holder’s agency.

Fitton points out the Community Relations Service intervened in the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, helping organize protests that pressed for the prosecution of George Zimmerman, who later was acquitted by a jury of murder.

Holder said in a statement Monday that the fatal shooting Saturday night of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, a St. Louis suburb, which has led to rioting and looting, deserves a full review. The FBI, the Associated Press reported, is looking into possible civil rights violations.”

It’s 11 p.m. ET, hours after law enforcement officers appeared on the streets of Ferguson, Mo., in armored vehicles, hours after two reporters (including the Post’s Wesley Lowery) were arrested, and shortly after another night of unrest and tear gas unfolded on the streets of the St. Louis suburb.

At 10:17 p.m., deputy White House press secretary Eric Schultz offered word from the administration, currently camped out on Martha’s Vineyard where the president is vacationing.”

Boots On The Mountain Are Boots On The Ground

iraq-isil-tikrit-600x400-ts300

There is a concentrated effort by the media to spread disinformation about US troop strength in Iraq. Today Business Insider tells us that, “Less than 20…” troops have been sent to help the Yazidi’s on Mount Sinjar in Iraq.

That means that President Obama is honoring his pledge to prohibit any ‘Boots on the ground in Iraq’ – or nearly so. Right?

Wrong. A month and a half ago Military.com told us that we were sending 300 more troops into Iraq, bringing the alleged total to, “… approximately 750, the Pentagon said.”. Since then more have been dribbling in ‘To protect Americans there. Here’s 130 more from yesterday’s news.

Here is another 300 from a month ago.

That took less than ten minutes to look up.

The cult of Obama in the media is as strong as ever.

Update: Defense One says the US has 1,000 troops in Iraq now.

Meanwhile, even with the hundreds of troops on the ground and fighter pilots in the air, the Obama administration insists there isn’t a combat mission in Iraq.”

This is from Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles:

“Obama Ignores Congress, Lifts Ban on Libyans Training in U.S. as Pilots, Nuke Scientists”

Less than two years after four Americans got massacred in a terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission in Benghazi, Libya the Obama administration is disregarding congressional opposition to lift a decades-old ban on Libyans attending flight schools and training as nuclear scientists in the United States.

The ban was implemented in 1983 after a wave of terrorist incidents involving Libyans. The African nation continues to be a hotbed of terrorism and in fact, the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli was recently evacuated because violence between rival militias has created a deadly environment. Many other foreign governments have also shut down their embassies in Libya because the violence has spread throughout the entire country.

Nevertheless, President Obama has discounted congressional opposition to let Libyans train as pilots, airplane mechanics and nuclear scientists in the United States. Perhaps the commander-in-chief has somehow forgotten that many of the 9/11 hijackers—mostly Saudi nationals—received their training in American flights schools because our government allowed it. Have we not learned that it’s a really bad idea to help our enemies obtain skills that could later be used to attack us?”
