Obama Administration and UN Announce Global Police Force to Fight ‘Extremism’ In U.S.

This means you – and me.

Biden-Lynch-UN-Getty-640x480

The United Nations is a sharia-compliant world body, and Obama, speaking there just days ago, insisted that “violent extremism” is not exclusive to Islam (which it is). Obama is redefining jihad terror to include everyone but the jihadists. So will the UN, driven largely by the sharia-enforcing Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the pro-Islamic post-American President Obama, use a “global police force” to crush counter-jihad forces?”

The FBI Has The Manpower, It Has The Resources, But It Is Being Misdirected

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is the entity that is charged with looking into federal crimes. They have ‘Task forces’ that are specialized for different jobs. They have law enforcement arm and they have a terrorism group. Their leaders are sending law enforcement people to investigate acts of terrorism.

Amy Zegart has noticed this problem. She writes about in Lawfare in a piece titled, “Lessons from Fort Hood and Asking the Right Questions in Orlando”.

Amy Zegart is the Davies Family Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, a professor of political science (by courtesy) at Stanford University, and co-director of Stanford’s Center for International Security and Cooperation. She teaches and writes about intelligence challenges, congressional oversight, and national security policy. Her books include Spying Blind: The CIA, the FBI and the Origins of 9/11, and Flawed by Design, which chronicles the development of the CIA, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and National Security Council. From 1999 to 2011, she was a public policy professor at UCLA. She also spent four years as a McKinsey & Company management consultant. Follow her on Twitter @AmyZegart

We must remember that the FBI is under the control of the Department of Justice, making Loretta Lynch its supremem leader. We have plainly seen how Lynch is attempting to steer investigations away from radical Islam even though all facts point toward it.

Zegart notes in her article the following:

4. Law enforcement ain’t intelligence.

In Fort Hood, the FBI approached the investigation of Nidal Hasan through a law enforcement lens, not an intelligence lens. The investigation asked whether Nidal Hasan was a current terrorist danger, not a gathering one. In the email closing the case, the investigator wrote that the FBI field office “does not currently assess Hasan to be involved in terrorist activities.” What it should have asked was whether Hasan might in the future be involved in terrorist activities, whether his relationship with Aulaqi might yield important information about radicalization more generally or Hasan more specifically. The FBI missed the threat because it stopped looking too soon. The FBI was not collecting intelligence. It was hunting a suspected criminal.”

It is plain that the good people in the Bureau are being misdirected from the top.

So, This Gay Guy Goes Into A Gay Bar And Shoots It Up. Obama Team Calls It ‘Intolerance?

They say he was intolerant of the LGBT lifestyle/ They refuse to mention that he was Muslim and claimed himself to be a fighter for the Islamic State and its leader.

They have been doing this for the entire time Obama has been in the White House. They will not acknowledge that radical Islamists are waging war on us. Instead, they label the killings as workplace violence or intolerance.

The Obama administration is lying to us again. They have an agenda and it is to protect violent Muslims against criticism. They make lame excuses for them and point in another direction and the attacks continue.

Just like Mateen’s wife who drove him around to inspect potential sites they are accomplices.

“Loretta Lynch, Black Lives Matter Blame Intolerance, Not Islamic Terrorism, For Orlando Massacre”

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch made no mention of radical Islam in her remarks about the June 12 massacre at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday, instead blaming “hatred and intolerance” in American society for the nation’s deadliest mass shooting.

In a 9-1-1 call to Orlando Police, shooter Omar Mateen – a 29-year-old Muslim who killed 49 people and wounded 53 others – described himself as an “Islamic soldier” and said he had pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).”

This Was Planned By Somebody

These bullies ruined Roberson’s retirement celebration. As you can see in the video several people surrounded Rodriguez and forced him off the stage. This was an act of assault. Someone arranged this act of cowarly violence. That person and the ones who took part in it should be arrested.

Obama’s military:

“USAF Vet Forcibly Removed from Flag-Folding Ceremony for Mentioning God”

A USAF veteran who has for years delivered a stirring “flag-folding speech” at military and civic events was recently forcibly removed from a retirement ceremony because his speech mentions “God.” As Senior Master Sergeant Oscar Rodriguez, Jr. (ret.) was about to begin his remarks, several uniformed airmen got up, surrounded him, assaulted him, and dragged him out of the room.

This is Obama’s military now:”

Master Sergeant (MSgt) Charles “Chuck” Roberson is a USAF veteran who retired on April 3, 2016 at Travis Air Force Base. A month before his retirement, Roberson saw Rodriguez perform the flag-folding speech at a friend’s retirement ceremony. Moved by the speech, Roberson personally asked Rodriguez to give the same speech at his own retirement ceremony. Rodriguez readily agreed.

[…]

When Rodriguez stood up to perform his speech as requested by Roberson, a uniformed airman approached him and warned, “You’re really going to do this?” — as if Roberson was about to something offensive like burn the flag or give a profane, anti-American speech.”

If you could search out the beheading videos, or the picture of the ISIS fighter all in black carrying the Daesh flag across the sands of Syria, if you could do it with video and audio, you’d be doing something big,” said Mark Wallace, chief executive of the Counter Extremism Project (CEP), a nonpartisan policy group. “I believe it’s a game-changer.”

The White House has signaled its support. “We welcome the launch of initiatives such as the Counter Extremism Project’s National Office for Reporting Extremism (NORex) that enables companies to address terrorist activity on their platforms and better respond to the threat posed by terrorists’ activities online,” said Lisa Monaco, President Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism.”

What A Way To Start The Day

The story makes me sick to my stomach. Jihadists for the Islamic State have turned into cruel monsters. They are encouraged to be cruel by their leaders. This kind of thing is absolutely disgusting. Rather than invoking fear and terrorizing those who read about it we become angry.

The worst part of this is that our President wants to stifle news like this for fear of offending the Islamic State and Muslims in general.

“Isis beheads 4-year-old girl then forces mother to soak hands in her blood after ‘swearing to Allah'”

Stock image

Stock image

According to reports, a jihadist overheard a mother ‘swear to Allah’ that she would behead her daughter if she did not return home from playing. Instead of ignoring the throw-away remark the woman was reported for what she said.

It was decided that as she ‘swore to god’ she should carry out the act. The mother however refused to kill her child so the jihadists decapitated the defenceless little girl as ‘punishment’ for her mother’s behaviour.

Not content with taking the child’s life they then forced the mother to soak her hands in the girl’s blood after she died.”

President Obama and Ben Rhodes scheming

Two recent devastating profiles—one of President Barack Obama by Jeffrey Goldberg in The Atlantic and the other of Obama’s communications chief Ben Rhodes by David Samuels in The New York Times Magazine—have revealed a kaleidoscope of mendacity so sophisticated, creative, consuming, and substantively boundless as to give rise to a sense that something essential has changed in the relationship between truth and falsehood, between the actual policies of an administration and its efforts to sell them.

At a deep level, spin displaced policy. Not only were key promises in the deal’s favor knowingly fabricated for the purpose of persuasion; not only were the scope and ambitions of the deal, the timeline of when talks began, the internal dynamics of the regime in Iran, and the priorities driving the American side during each stage willfully distorted; not only were journalists and experts whose entire reputations should have been at stake enlisted in the government’s sorcery; not only were official records doctored; but the process of decision-making within the administration appears to have been short-circuited as well.”

“Loretta Lynch Overrules The FBI: No Fly List Can Be Used To Ban Gun Buyers”

8 ways you can end up on the no-fly list

The face of a vacuous tyrant

The face of a vacuous tyrant

1. Being suspected to have been involved at some point in time of terrorist activates. Whatever that means, because no one seems to know.
.
2. Travel to other countries. Given the prism that this State Department views certain countries as either “good” or “bad”, I can see how this is pretty arbitrary. Moreover, not one State Dept. bureaucrat was held responsible for letting these people back in. I’d like to have that conversation with Loretta.

3. Complaints from SJW’s on social media. No really, that’s it.

4. Have a name that sounds the same as someone on the No Fly List. Which is in no way arbitrary or against the rule of law.

5. When the alphabet agencies call you out, you don’t play ball. As in, if you don’t snitch, you don’t fly. Or own a gun apparently.

6. Because Bureaucracy. Typing errors can get you on the list. Try defending yourself to the machine that you, Mr. John Q. Smith from Anytown USA is not Mohammed Salafist .

7. Bench warrants, too many parking tickets, whatever.

8. Again, Social Media. Tweeting your displeasure in the Hillary/Bernie 2016 ticket can catch the eye of Mordor and keep you from flying.

“The Taliban now hold more ground in Afghanistan than at any point since 2001”

taliban

KABUL, Afghanistan — The new U.S. commander in Afghanistan has submitted his first three-month assessment of the situation in the war-torn country and what it’s going to take to defeat the Taliban, a U.S. military official has told The Associated Press.

And though the content of the review by Army Gen. John W. Nicholson is secret, the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan received a major incentive this month when President Obama decided to expand America’s involvement with more airstrikes against insurgents, giving the U.S. military wider latitude to support Afghan forces, both in the air and on the ground.”

One month after the San Bernardino terrorist attack that left 14 innocent people dead, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told advisors that right wing extremists pose just as much of a threat to the country as Islamic extremists.

Johnson made the comments during the Homeland Security Advisory Council’s (HSAC) January meeting. City of Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo, whom Johnson appointed to HSAC, shifted the discussion to the threat of right-wing extremists, according to the official meeting minutes.”

So, Donald Trump Made A Speech About National Security

David Horowitz calls it a ‘Game Changer‘. I respect Horowitz. He was once a screaming leftist until he grew up.

I didn’t listen to Trump’s speech. I rarely listen to politicians any more.

trump bloviating

But Horowitz had this to say:

Donald Trump’s speech on national security, which he delivered the day after the terrorist attack in Orlando, Florida, will change the dynamic of this election.

The speech was specific, detailed, and on the money. Trump showed how strategic securing the border is, how important stopping immigration from terror zones like Syria is, and how deadly political correctness has become. Political correctness – which transforms the Islamic world, which has a lot to answer for, from aggressors into innocent victims – functions as a shield for Islamic terrorists, and handcuffs law-abiding citizens prompting them not to report suspicious activities by Muslims for fear of being called racist.”

Our ‘Coward in Chief’ made a weak-sister speech earlier. It was so insipid and without emotion that it convinced no one. But Time has tried to come to Obama’s rescue with one of the most mealy-mouthed, worthless complaints against Trump. You see, Mr. Trump showed his scorn for their hero, President Obama.

“Donald Trump Just Made Some Shady Insinuations About President Obama and the Orlando Shooting”

President Barack Obama

President Barack Obama

Donald Trump suggested Monday that President Obama is oblivious to issues of terrorism—and he seemed to suggest in the process that Obama might sympathize with the suspected gunman in the deadly Orlando nightclub shooting.

The unsubstantiated insinuations, in a series of interviews Monday morning, came from the Republican presidential candidate who once led calls for the release of the President’s birth certificate and has more than once indulged conspiracy theories about Obama’s faith and heritage. On Monday, just one day after a gunman killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in Orlando—the worst mass shooting in American history—Trump said on Fox News that he believes there’s “something else going on.”

You’re darned right there is something else going on. Barack Obama is the son of a Muslim. His step-father was a Muslim. He attended Madrassa in Indonesia.

Donald Trump has sensed a weak spot in the left’s narrative. He is on the attack. If he succeeds he will destroy them. And they need to be destroyed. They are evil and they are bent on the destruction of western culture.

Obama Chooses Sides As He Said He Would

“Obama: ‘We’ are to blame, not Islamic terrorism, for massacre”

President Barack Obama leaves the podium after speaking about the massacre at an Orlando nightclub during a news conference at the White House in Washington on Sunday, June 12, 2016.

President Barack Obama leaves the podium after speaking about the massacre at an Orlando nightclub during a news conference at the White House in Washington on Sunday, June 12, 2016.

Omar Mateen called the cops to pledge his fealty to ISIS as he was carrying out his mass murder in Orlando early Sunday. Twelve hours later, the president of the United States declared that “we have no definitive assessment on the motivation” of Omar Mateen but that “we know he was a person filled with hate.”

So I guess the president thinks Mateen didn’t mean it?

Here again, and horribly, we have an unmistakable indication that Obama finds it astonishingly easy to divorce himself from a reality he doesn’t like — the reality of the Islamist terror war against the United States and how it is moving to our shores in the form of lone-wolf attacks.”

More at the New York Post

This is an opportunity for Presidential candidates to make Obama look like both a fool and as the cause of the expansion of Islamic violence in the United States. He has decided to ‘Lead from behind’ which means not leading at all. He is pushing his image of utopia on our country. He wants everyone to live in peace in a chemical haze like John Lennon did and Barack Obama does.

Candidate Donald Trump is causing palpitations in the leftist community by not only doubling down on his plan to cut back on Islamic people emigrating to our country. He is also calling for the decimation – no, destruction – of the Islamic State. This is the kind of non-politically correct talk our country needs.

If Trump can pull it off he can destroy both Obama in the last year of his Presidency, and Hillary Clinton for her pathetic job as Secretary of State.

The media seems addicted to Trump’s bloviating. They report on every thing he says. They will be unable to stop him if he goes after the left for incompetence.

“Obama Raided $500M for Zika to Finance UN’s Green Climate Fund”

How can this be legal?

This was written by Oklahoma Senator James Lankford and published in the Daily Signal.

child man obama

Last week, the Senate passed legislation to address and prevent the spread of the Zika virus. However, the Senate failed to pay for it, and instead approved a $1.1 billion “emergency” spending supplemental bill that is not subject to the budgetary caps that were agreed to last year.

While congressional inattention to the budget crisis is inexcusable, it is even more disturbing that the Obama administration already has the authority to pay for a Zika response from existing agency budgets, but chose not to.

[…]

In March, President Obama gave the United Nations $500 million out of an account under bilateral economic assistance to fund the U.N.’s Green Climate Fund.

Congress refused to allocate funding for the U.N. Climate Change Fund last year, so the president used this account designated for international infectious diseases to pay for his priority.”

Obama’s Biggest Lie?

Bacevich_Nuke1

In 2009, shortly after his inauguration President Barack H. Obama promised to, “… rid the world of nuclear weapons”. As a result of that promise he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Instead of reducing nuclear warheads he has expanded them, Both here in the United States and in Iran.

ABC News did a story in 2013 about the proliferation in this country. In it they record that the number of nuclear weapons has increased from 5,113 in 2009 to 7,700 in 2012. They also point out that Obama was still promising to reduce the number of nukes even while the proliferation continues.

Commonweal Magazine tells us,

Consistent with this tradition, President Barack Obama, early in his first term, announced “clearly and with conviction” his intention to pursue “a world without nuclear weapons.” Now late in his second term, he has unveiled plans that point in quite a different direction.

With remarkably little fanfare, the administration is embarking upon an ambitious, long-term program aimed at enhancing U.S. nuclear striking power. Upon its completion, roughly expected to coincide with the hundredth anniversary of Hiroshima, U.S. forces will possess a vastly improved suite of nuclear ordnance and delivery systems. New, stealthier, missile-firing submarines; new land-based ballistic and air-launched cruise missiles; new long-range bombers; and steerable, “dial-a-yield” bombs will endow the United States with nuclear capabilities of unprecedented precision and flexibility. The new nukes will stand in relation to those they replace as a smart phone stands in relation to an old IBM mainframe computer.”

Dial-A-Yield nukes? A budget of one trillion dollars, too.

Whereas “crippled,” i.e., aging, weapons pose dangers, new weapons bolster credibility, the coin of the realm in nuclear strategy. Besides, as Defense Secretary Ashton Carter once reassuringly put it, nuclear weapons “don’t actually cost that much.”

John Pilger writes on his blog:

In 2009, Obama promised to help “rid the world of nuclear weapons” and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. No American president has built more nuclear warheads than Obama. He is “modernising” America’s doomsday arsenal, including a new “mini” nuclear weapon, whose size and “smart” technology, says a leading general, ensure its use is “no longer unthinkable”.

James Bradley, the best-selling author of Flags of Our Fathers and son of one of the US marines who raised the flag on Iwo Jima, said, “[One] great myth we’re seeing play out is that of Obama as some kind of peaceful guy who’s trying to get rid of nuclear weapons. He’s the biggest nuclear warrior there is. He’s committed us to a ruinous course of spending a trillion dollars on more nuclear weapons. Somehow, people live in this fantasy that because he gives vague news conferences and speeches and feel-good photo-ops that somehow that’s attached to actual policy. It isn’t.”

And they all point out that none of the Presidential candidates has even spoken about the increase.

The Obamas Do Not Want Healing. They Want Division – Along Racial And Other Lines.

Michelle Obama gave a speech at City College of New York. In it were many references to her favorite topic, the ancient misuse of black people. In fact, Mrs. Obama first showed what was foremost in her mind when she was a senior at Princeton University. Her thesis was titled, “Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community”

michelle obama

In New York on Friday she said this: “I Wake Up Each Day in a House Built by Slaves”.

While possibly true, it was a couple of hundred years ago. But that does not explain why Mrs. Obama still keeps that kind of sadness and resentment so close to the front of her mind. It is sad, actually. It shows that she embraces a level of anger and resentment that is not healthy.

The United States of America has come a long way in those two hundred and some years. We started by rejecting slavery. Then we made every American equal under the law.

Mrs. Obama does not recognize those advances. Instead she clings to the hatred she has for wrongs that were perpetrated against people other than her. She revels in her blackness. That is not a bad thing. Everyone should be proud of who they are. But she takes that revelry to impossible lengths. She is telling the young people she is talking to that they should be angry as well about something that no longer exists.

Sadly, her anger is selective. She blames the white people of that era and she blames the white people of today. She refuses to place any blame on the Africans who actually enslaved African blacks and sold them. It is sad that she can only hate the purchasers but not the sellers. It is very sad that she harbors so much anger.

Palestinians Compared To Israelis

Of course there are plenty of people who support the destruction that Islam teaches. It’s all based on one thing: Hatred of others.

This is an insightful essay on the differences between western values and Islam. Included is a stark image of a greenhouse installed by Israelis in which to grow vegetables. It was abandoned by them when Gaza was turned over to the Palestinians. Did they continue to grow food there? No.

160527-palestine-greenhouse

Records show it has always been so. Sadly, this is what our President and most of the rest of the American left believe we should emulate. Me, I prefer the examples set by the Israelis.

150 years ago, Mark Twain visited Muslim-occupied Israel and wrote of “unpeopled deserts” and “mounds of barrenness”, of “forlorn” and “untenanted” cities.

Palestine is “desolate”, he concluded. “One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings.” The same is true of the Palestinian Museum which opened with much fanfare and one slight problem. While admission is free, there’s nothing inside for any of the visitors to see except the bare walls.

The Palestinian Museum had been in the works since 1998, but has no exhibits. The museum cost $24 million. All it has to show for it are a few low sloping sandy buildings indistinguishable from the dirt and a “garden” of scraggly bushes and shrubs. The Palestinian Museum is open, but there’s nothing inside.”

I Don’t Understand Why The Mexican Government Doesn’t File Criminal Charges Against the Obama Administration

Bringing guns or ammunition into Mexico is a serious crime. If you or I did it we would be in the slammer for years. Even if we never fired a shot. Now there are documented killings of Mexican nationals using guns senth there under ‘Operation Fast and Furious’.

“Justice Department Documents Reveal Widespread Use of Fast and Furious Weapons by Major Mexican Drug Cartels – Linked to at least 69 Killings”

holder-fast-and-furious-110622beelertoon_c20110622032941-gunrunner-scandal

Judicial Watch obtained the documents last month in response to a March 17, 2016, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives seeking the following:

All records identifying the locations (including, but not limited to, crime scenes and the locations of seizures) at which firearms – that were identified during the course of or due to Operation Fast and Furious – have been recovered by law enforcement personnel.
The documents show 94 Fast and Furious firearms were seized, 20 were identified as being involved in “violent recoveries.” The “violent recoveries” involved several mass killings:

June 30, 2014 — One 7.62mm rifle recovered in Tlatlaya, Estado de Mexico. This is the reported date and location of a shootout in which 22 people were killed.

May 22, 2015 — Two 7.62mm rifles recovered from the site of a massive shootout in Rancho el Sol, Michoacán, that left one Mexican Federal Police officer and 42 suspected cartel members dead.

August 7, 2015 — One 7.62mm rifle was among five firearms reported as recovered from an abandoned stolen vehicle in which three dead shooting victims were found in Parral, Chihuahua.

January 29, 2013 — One 7.62mm rifle seized in Hostotipaquillo, Jalisco is reportedly related to the assassination of the town police chief, Luis Lucio Astorga and his bodyguard.

January 11, 2016 — One .50 caliber rifle seized from the Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman’s hideout in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, where he was (re)arrested.

Louie Gohmert Says FBI Won’t Indict Hillary Clinton

He may be right. For a bureaucrat like Comey it would be really difficult to actually pursue an indictment against Hillary. It would take a very strong man who is willing to sacrifice his job, his good name, and the safety of his family to do so. That is not a good description of most people who choose to work for government.

This scenario is so logical that it just sounds right. Comey will be getting pressure from the Clintons, Attorney General Lynch, and the White House.
