Rhymes With Barf

State Department spokesgirl Marie Harf tells us that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu doesn’t have a plan for dealing with Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions. Unlike her boss, Bibi has military experience and, also unlike her boss, he would never reveal a military plan before its implementation.

She also lied about the purpose of the talks the US is having with Iran. She said the goal of the talks is to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons.

Lying is what this White House and its spokespeople do best and most often.

Marie Harf

We believe that it is in Israel’s security interest that we get a diplomatic agreement with Iran to prevent it from getting a nuclear weapon. I didn’t hear Prime Minister Netanyahu put forward any alternatives today and some of the alternatives we heard before to a negotiated agreement either put more sanctions on and they capitulate taking a military option. Many of those alternatives are wholly unrealistic – all experts agree on that.”

PuffHo: ‘Outlawing Green Tip Ammo Is A Dumb Move’

5.56 green tip

In his Huffington Post article titled, ‘Executive Order M855‘, Dennis Santiago says it’s a dumb move to change the classification of green-tip ammunition to make it illegal. Santiago actually has his facts straight. His writing style is difficult because he is so verbose but he is knowledgeable about his subject.

First he says the move will not make police officers safer:

There is no evidence or analysis shown in the BATFE’s proposal that indicates that its considerable technical division did one iota of analysis to determine whether this ammunition poses a unique and extraordinary threat to the soft armor of law enforcement officers any different from other AR-15 ammunition that will continue to be available.

The answer is that it does not. Whether you examine 5.56/.223 ammunition from a muzzle energy or penetration energy concentration perspective, at urban law enforcement engagement ranges, all of it does the same thing. It all hits with around three times the energy of a .357 magnum with about four times the soft armor defeat potential or “burn through efficiency” of true pistol ammunition. It doesn’t matter if it’s Vietnam era M193 55 grain ammunition, M-16A2 era M855/SS109 62 grain ammunition, or borrowed from the competition world Mk262 Mod 0/1 77 grain ammunition. In a gunfight with an opponent one and one half car lengths from you, it all performs about the same. All of it will defeat Level IIIA soft body armor.”

He worries that this move by BATFE will alienate gun owning voters.

As the 2016 election cycle begins, one hopes that issues such as the nation’s continued struggle towards economic recovery and our foreign policy strategy to deal with a world we seem less and less able to positively influence should dominate our selection of the next president. Into this tenuous hope for a more cogent debate, the BATFE has introduced a proposed executive branch rule regarding ammunition that will likely pivot the election cycle back towards the same driving forces that caused so many blue states to turn red in the November 2014 midterm.

Fueled by a seeming need to create a “we’re doing something,” optical illusion, the executive branch threatens to raise the hunger of the gun lobby to fight even harder for its political values in the critical opening phases of the primaries by infuriating gun owners.”

He’s right about all of it. It’s worth a read even though it is a bit tedious.

“Ben Shapiro: First They Came for the Jews”

This reference is an expansion on the comments of Pastor Martin Niemöller who was an opponent of Adolf Hitler and spent seven years in Nazi concentration camps. His famous quote about Nazis is this:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

Shapiro is warning us about what our President is doing and he is right.

First, they came for the Jews, and Obama did not speak up, because he was not a Jew. Then, they came for the Christians, and Obama did not speak up, because he is not a Christian. Now, they come for Western Civilization.

And Obama will not speak up because he is not an advocate of Western Civilization. He is a believer that Western Civilization is exploitative; that terrorism is caused by imbalances between the West and the rest; that if only the West would minimize its arrogance on the world stage, peace would result. And so we cut the military. And so we make way for an Iranian nuclear program. And so we hamstring Israel and Egypt and insist that ISIS is not Islamic.

They are coming for the Jews. They are coming for the Christians. They are coming for Western Civilization. By the time the radical Muslims come for those who think like President Obama, there will be no one left to speak out.”

“Quiet Change Expands ATF Power to Seize Property”

seized guns

This is an act that allows the ATF to take your guns, ammunition, house, car, anything. All they have to do is ‘Suspect’ that you are dealing drugs. It goes around the need to convince a judge so they can get a warrant.

There are a couple things about this. First, why the ATF? Their proper title is the ‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives’. Nowhere in their title or their charter are drugs mentioned.

Second, the hurdles they must jump to seize your property are so low as to be non-existent. They just have to say they ‘Suspect’ you of having drugs.

The revolutionaries are continuing to push. They want an armed confrontation that they can quell. They will get it, too, with moves like this.

This is from the CATO Institute.

A quick glance at the Federal Register (Vol. 80, No. 37, p. 9987-88) today reveals that Attorney General Eric Holder, who earned cautious praise last month for a small reform to the federal equitable sharing program, has now delegated authority to the Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to seize and “administratively forfeit” property involved in suspected drug offenses. Holder temporarily delegated this authority to the ATF on a trial basis in 2013, and today made the delegation permanent while lauding the ATF for seizing more than $19.3 million from Americans during the trial period.”

Obama Has Decided To Play Hardball With Netanyahu

Obama doesn’t know what hardball is. Israel is entirely capable of doing whatever it takes to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program. They have the means and they have the will to do it. Netanyahu will act with or without help or approval from the current President of the United States.

Survival trumps politics every time to the wise leader.

U.S. Secretary of State Kerry shakes hands with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu during a news conference following a meeting at Netanyahu's office in Jerusalem

“Now we know who to believe on Iran”

After anonymous sources in Jerusalem leaked to Israeli reporters in recent weeks the ostensible terms of the deal being hammered out, various spokespeople for the Obama administration contended that the Netanyahu government was misrepresenting the specifics for narrow political ends. They sneered that Israel didn’t actually know what the terms were. And they made the acknowledgement — the astounding acknowledgement for a United States whose key regional ally is directly and relentlessly threatened with destruction by Iran — that the Obama administration is consequently no longer sharing with Jerusalem all sensitive details of the Iran talks.”

“Islam’s Greatest Contribution To The United States Was Slavery”

Our President has said that Islam has had a profound effect on American history, that Muslims affected the development of our country. Shoebat says he is right. You and I know that it’s true.

Those of us who are old enough remember being taught about the slave trade in the early years of the United States. American and European ships brought black Africans to our shores but who rounded up those slaves and brought them to the ships? Muslims.

muslim slaver

And they’re still doing it. This is an image of a slave sale in Mosul, Iraq.

slave trade in iraq

Yes, Islam has had its effect on the development of the United States. It was not as positive an effect as President Obama would have us believe.

Our dear leader loves to talk about how Islam has been in the fabric of our nation since its birth. My Colleague Ted Shoebat has talked about the Barbary Pirate wars, but prior to the American Revolution the Arab Muslims of North Africa biggest economic trade was to supply Slaves all over the world of which about 5% of all African slaves ended up here in the USA/Colonies with the majority going to Central and South America as well as slaves in the MIddle East and India.”

It Looks Like Iran Will Have The Bomb

bomb

The leaders of Iran want a nuclear weapon. As a matter of fact they want a whole arsenal of them. They have been working hard to make it happen. They have defied every move to either slow or stop that development.

Now it looks like the President of the United States has agreed to let them have it.

He has sent Secretary of State John Kerry over to work out a deal with Iran. Kerry is dealing with Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iranian Foreign Minister in Switzerland.

Kerry is out of his depth. Zarif has been bullying him. He has been warned by Iranian leaders to stop screaming at Kerry. Now he has threatened to walk out of the talks.

American commenters have called this action by Kerry, “The Worst Possible Outcome”. They note:

As Walter Russell Mead noted last week, “a process that began with the goal of eliminating Iran’s potential to produce nuclear weapons has evolved into a plan to tolerate and restrict that capability.” It is quite possible that the most important foreign policy legacy of Barack Obama, who began his presidency by winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his nuclear non-proliferation efforts, will be the death of non-proliferation.”

Israel Hayom, representing the interests of the State of Israel, calls Obama and Kerry’s actions as, “An American about face, into the arms of Iran”.

But if this is the way things are, Israel must prepare for a harsh period, at the end of which we will see a changed region, because once the powers that be in the Middle East understand the proportions of the American about face, everything will look different. Among other things, just as Henry Kissinger predicted recently, the important Sunni states (Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey) will begin a nuclear arms race because they, unlike the U.S., do not believe in stability predicated upon a Shiite country that with America’s support will become the most influential power in the region.

In the U.S. there is a considerable number of people who understand the scope of trouble such a decision would cause for Israel, the Middle East and eventually, the U.S. as well. They need to be called upon to join the struggle.”

Yep, Kerry, under Obama’s direction, is willing to allow Iran to become a nuclear power. Now, at least we know how the Islamic Armageddon will come about.

U.S. preparing to sue Ferguson police over charges of racial bias

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Justice is preparing to sue the Ferguson, Missouri, police department over allegations of racially discriminatory practices unless the police force agrees to make changes, CNN reported on Wednesday.

The network, citing sources, said the Justice Department would not charge the white Ferguson police officer involved in the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown last August but was expected to outline allegations of discriminatory Ferguson police tactics.

The department would file suit if Ferguson police did not agree to review and change those tactics, CNN reported.”

Peters: “Marie Harf Is Exhibit A for the Comprehensive Failure of the US Educational System”

Peters is right about this but what he says is incomplete. Harf does not come up with this idiocy on her own. What comes out of her mouth is scripted by the Department of State officials and they get their orders from the White House.

Harf is a sacrificial lamb. She is being destroyed by her superiors and she either doesn’t know it or she doesn’t care – it’s all or nothing for the revolution.

The fact that she came before a national television audience and spouted her inanities does not mean she made them up. It means she was sent out to say them. The only reason she would be sent out to look like a fool is to make the media, especially the media on the right, pay attention to her and distract from something else.

I Am Not Convinced It Was A Coincidence

This morning there is a lot on the web about President Obama allegedly giving the IS Shahada salute.

original

We know that every image of militant Muslims shows them giving this same ‘One God’ salute.

There was a time not too long ago when I would have ignored reports like this. It was sort of like much of what we read on World Net Daily. We considered it to be tinfoil hat, conspiracy stuff. Trouble is, WND’s reports no longer look crazy. The reports of what is coming from the Obama White House in reality are far stranger than most of the conspiracy stuff.

What makes this a little more believable is the obvious delight in the faces of those who observed this little episode. This is from Atlas Shrugs:

The Daily Mail editors did not understand what they were looking at. They captioned it “finger wagging” by Obama. But the African dignitaries understood, and a range of reactions can be detected among the ones who observed the gesture: amusement, surprise, curiosity, disapproval, contempt. Note the reactions of Abdelilah Berkirane, the prime minister of Morroco pictured just behind Obama’s left shoulder, and Ibrahim Boubacas Keita, the president of Mali in white garb and hat. They are Muslims through and through, and they are all smiles. They knew what Obama’s upright forefinger meant.”

A blow-up of the Obama image illustrates what Geller meant:

obama gang sign

I don’t know but I put nothing past the man who continually defends Islam and the militants.

John McCain Wants President To Have More Power

Screen-Shot-2015-02-15-at-5.39.04-PM

The house of Representatives has passed a bill that funds the Department of Homeland Security and sent it to the Senate. Several Senators, primarily John McCain, object to the fact that the House bill includes verbiage that puts limits on the powers of the President.

John McCain: Don’t handcuff president

Sen. John McCain said Sunday he opposes any ISIL war resolution that puts limits on the power of the president, saying on “Meet the Press” that such restrictions were “unconstitutional.”

“To restrain him in our authorization of him taking military action, I think, frankly, is unconstitutional and eventually leads to 535 commanders in chief,” the Arizona Republican told host Chuck Todd.”

ATF Intends To Ban ‘Armor Piercing’ Ammunition

5.56 green tip

From the ATF proposal:

To protect the lives and safety of law enforcement officers from the threat posed by
ammunition capable of penetrating a protective vest when fired from a handgun, the Gun Control
Act of 1968 (GCA), as amended, prohibits the import, manufacture, and distribution of “armor
piercing ammunition” as defined by the statute. The GCA, however, allows for the exemption of
ammunition that would otherwise be considered armor piercing if the Attorney General
determines that the specific ammunition at issue is “primarily intended to be used for sporting
purposes.”

If you think it doesn’t affect 5.56 ammo because it’s fired in a rifle, remember these AR15 pistols:

Islamic State Now Has 17 Kurds To Burn

“Paraded in cages ‘to be burned alive’ like Jordanian pilot: ISIS releases video claiming to show 17 Kurdish fighters in humiliating procession through Iraqi city”

Heads bowed in terror the orange-clad Kurdish fighters are paraded through streets filled with jeering militants in the latest horrifying video release from Islamic State.

In a grim echo of the terrible fate which befell Jordanian pilot Lieutenant Muath al-Kaseasbeh the captives, reportedly Peshmerga fighters, are dressed in orange jumpsuits and shackled in cages.

Just as Lt. al-Kaseasbeh was burned alive on camera, IS are planning to do the same with their latest prisoners, according to posts on social media.”

Also included in the Mail article is the news that eight IS fighters were killed during an attack on the Ain al-Asad air base, where 320 US Marines are currently training Iraqi troops.

In other news President Obama made seventeen holes-in-one yesterday in his round of golf. He says he almost broke 100.

Islamic State Surrounds 320 US Marines

The little news about this is coming from Fox News. Other than that it’s almost a total black out.

isis marines

Fox says IS is ‘Dangerously close’ to the Marines. They don’t mention who is in danger. You and I know, though, don’t we? Shoebat reports that there are 320 Marines there.

If I were a Marine I would not surrender my weapons like they say they did in Yemen. Of course if you get an order from the ‘Commander in Chief’ to do so I guess you do. If you don’t get such an order Marines do what Marines do best.

“Biden: 2016 is battle for third Obama term”

Something is going on that needs to have the public distracted from it. Biden has gone out and dropped a sound bite that everyone will talk about for days. It doesn’t mean what it sounds like. It means he supports a Marxist for the Presidency; one who supports Islam and hates Jews.

But everyone will pay attention to the ‘Third Term’ reference and talk endlessly about it as if it was newsworthy.

What needs to be covered up?

bidenjoe_getty

The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee should embrace the notion of a third term of the Obama presidency, Vice President Biden said Thursday, during a speech at Drake University in Iowa.

“I call it sticking with what works,” Biden declared.

The address was billed as a chance for Biden to explain some of the ideas introduced in President Obama’s recent State of the Union address, but the vice president repeatedly returned to a discussion of how he saw the contours of the presidential race.

His trip to the first-in-the-nation caucus state has reinvigorated speculation he could be preparing his own bid for the White House.

The vice president said the election would be “all about” either continuing the Obama economic policies or shifting to Republicans’ “top-down” vision.
“Run on what we have done. Own what we have done. Stand for what we have done. Acknowledge what we have done,” Biden said.”

WTF?: “TSA Demands Internal Passport for Domestic Travel”

“Your Papers, citizen.”

Precedents exist for requiring citizens to produce special ID for domestic travel; they include Nazi Germany, apartheid South Africa and Russia (both Imperial and Soviet).

Over the Christmas season, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) quietly announced that America was walking down that path. By 2016, all domestic air travel will require either a traditional passport or a federally-compliant ID card called “Real ID.” State driver’s licenses will no longer allow Americans access to domestic flights, as they do now. Real ID will constitute an internal passport.”

There are, however, what this man calls, “Muslims in name only”. They are non-practicing Muslims. They are the peaceful ones.

Obama To CBC: “Skip That Jew’s Speech”

The anti-semitism in the Oval Office is strong but not surprising. This President sides with Islamists every time. Of course they hate Jews so he must. He makes excuses for the killing of innocents by Muslims, tries to equate the slaughters performed by Muslims to the defensive actions of Christians and Jews, and he is dividing the people in the country he has sworn to protect.

Insider says Obama administration ‘sent a message’ to black Democratic lawmakers that they should skip Netanyahu speech to Congress

‘BACK CHANNELS': The Obama administration is nudging black Democrats on Capitol Hill away from attending a March 3 address by ISraeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, a White House aide says

Two prominent black Democrats in the House of Representatives are vowing to skip Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress next month, a move that a White House insider says was put in motion by the Obama administration.

John Lewis of Georgia and G.K. Butterfield of North Carolina both said Friday that they disapproved when House Speaker John Boehner invited the Israeli leader to address a joint session of Congress on March 3 without consulting President Barack Obama first.

That disapproval apparently was orchestrated, or at least strongly encouraged, by the White House through comamunications with lawmakers connected to the Congressional Black Caucus.

‘I’m not saying the president called anyone personally,’ a current White House staffer told Daily Mail Online.

‘But yeah, the White House sent a message to some at the CBC that they should suddenly be very upset about the speech.'”
