Age mattered on priorities. Sixteen percent of those under the age of 35 picked the economy as the most pressing issue, with 33 percent citing education. People aged 65 or older said terrorism and the economy are the top threats. The poll also showed that all living former presidents have a higher favorability rating than Obama. Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush each scored a 64 percent rating; Jimmy Carter, 56 percent; and George W. Bush, 52 percent.
Dr. West laid-out the plain truths that America must confront: the Barack Obama presidency, the presidency of the first black executive, has been an absolute failure. In an op-ed for Salon.com, West blasts Obama for his complicity in worsening the plight of the black community throughout his tenure. “On the empirical or lived level of Black experience, Black people have suffered more in this age than in the recent past,” West writes. “Empirical indices of infant mortality rates, mass incarceration rates, mass unemployment and dramatic declines in household wealth reveal this sad reality. Citing Obama’s continuation of domestic surveillance, Department of Justice and Wall Street regulatory policies, West boldly notes, “The state of Black America in the age of Obama has been one of desperation, confusion, and capitulation. The desperation is rooted in the escalating suffering on every front. The confusion arises from a conflation of symbol and substance. The capitulation rests on an obsessive need to protect the first Black president against all forms of criticism. Black desperation is part of a broader desperation among poor and working people during the age of Obama.” This is precisely why the Restore The Dream campaign is so important. This campaign, sponsored by TheTeaParty.net and the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) is an effort to reaffirm the dream offered by Dr. Martin Luther King that inspired a generation to rise up and work for true equality and a betterment of their communities.

Married women vote Republican. Unmarried women lopsidedly vote Democrat. It is both silly and dishonest to deny that it is in the Democrats' interest that women not marry. Blacks who are not angry at America, especially white America, are more likely than those who harbor such anger to vote Republican. The more a black considers America a racist society, the more he or she is a guaranteed Democratic voter. The more a Latino assimilates into American society, the more likely he or she is to vote Republican. On the other hand, the more Latinos continue to identify with the country they or their parents fled, the more likely they are to vote Democrat. In the past, nearly all immigrants sought to become American and to shed their previous national or ethnic identity. Today, many, perhaps a majority of, immigrants from Latin America do not have that goal. They come primarily for economic benefits. Meanwhile, under cover of "multiculturalism," Democrats and the rest of the Left cultivate immigrants' Latin identities, knowing that the more American an immigrant feels, the less likely he or she is to vote Democrat. Americans who do not see themselves as victims — of an "unfair" or "racist" or "misogynist" society — are more likely to vote Republican. Americans who see themselves as victims of American society are likely to vote Democrat. The more Americans depend on themselves or their family or community, the more likely they are to vote Republican. The more Americans depend on the government — whether for a job or for economic assistance — the more likely they are to vote Democrat. Therefore, it is in the Democrats' interest to have more and more Americans depend on the state. In other words, in almost every area of life, the better things are, the worse it is for the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party cultivates singlehood, black anger, Latino separatism, victimhood, group grievance and dependency on government. Nor is this the only way in which Democrats damage America. The Democratic Party has become a destructive force. Though you may not intend to, if you vote for any Democrat, you contribute to destruction.
whoever is President affects the lives of not just Americans, but others throughout the world. Like millions of Americans I had turned against the Vietnam War and, in a seminal way, it would influence my movement toward conservatism. For many people Nixon was instrumental, not just in rejuvenating the Republican Party, but for giving a voice to the “silent majority” who didn’t like the war in general and Lyndon Baines Johnson in particular. In 1968, LBJ announced he would not seek reelection. In the years since the Watergate scandal whose cover-up forced Nixon to resign in 1974, subsequent generations know him only for that historic event. Patrick J. Buchanan has done us all a favor by writing “The Greatest Comeback: How Richard Nixon Rose from Defeat to Create the New Majority.” ($34.00, Crown Publishing) and it is a special treat for anyone who loves history in general and politics in particular. As much as today’s media may have loved Obama when he was nominated the Democratic Party’s candidate, in Nixon’s day he was loathed by them for his strong anti-communist stance when he served in the House of Representatives and Senate, and thereafter throughout the Cold War. After having been Eisenhower’s Vice President for two terms, Nixon would lose to John F. Kennedy in 1960 and in a race to become the Governor of California in 1962. Few would have ever imagined that he would be elected President in 1968. In 1972 he was reelected in a landslide. Nixon had negotiated SALT I and the ABM treaty, the greatest arms-limitation treaties since the Washington Naval Agreement” in 1922. Significantly, “he had ended decades of hostility between the United States and the People’s Republic of China, dating to Mao’s revolution and the Korean War. He had put an end to the draft, signed into law the eighteen-year-old vote, put four justices on the Supreme Court including Chief Justice Warren Burger and future chief justice William Rehnquist.” Those of us who lament Big Government must acknowledge that Nixon created the Environmental Protection Agency, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and on the plus side the National Cancer Institute. He would “rescue Israel from defeat in the Yom Kippur War (and) end Soviet domination of Egypt.” Nixon brought about change on the basis of his vast knowledge of history, foreign affairs, and his judgment regarding the American people. By contrast, President Obama does not seem to like the American people or America. Do you think Obama will go down as the most corrupt president in history? Take the Official Tea Party Poll.

The president's speaking about the Iraq air strikes before getting on the helicopter to fly to Martha's Vineyard. Odumbos’s Still blaming Bush. This man got elected promising to get every evidence of any American presence out of IRAQ, and he did. And when he did, he very proudly proclaimed it. And now he's blaming the Iraqis and Bush for what he did. Obama bragging about getting out of Iraq single-handedly, forecasting that he was gonna get out of Iraq single-handedly, promising he was gonna get out of Iraqi single-handedly, sound bites of him bragging about it. But here, let's go to Boca Raton, Florida, October 22nd, 2012, the third presidential debate between Obama and Mitt Romney. This goes by kind of quickly, 14 seconds. ROMNEY: You and I agreed, I believe, that there should have been a Status of Forces Agreement. OBAMA: That's not true! ROMNEY: Oh, you didn't? You didn't want a Status of Forces Agreement? OBAMA: No. What I -- what I would NOT have done is left 10,000 troops in Iraq that would tie us down! RUSH: See? OBAMA: That certainly would not help us in the Middle East! RUSH: He's running for reelection in 2012 and he's gotta tell this deranged base of his that he got us out of there. There weren't gonna be any remaining American troops. Now he's blaming it on everybody else, but he was taking credit for it there in the debate, taking credit for leaving no troops there. So he had to tell Romney he was wrong. "No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no! I never signed on for a Status of Forces Agreement! Never, never, never! I would never leave 10,000 troops! Never." New York Times, June 23rd this year, a little over a month ago. "Diplomatic Note Promises Immunity From Iraqi Law for US Advisory Troops." Now, what this Status of Forces Agreement really is...What Obama's trying to say is, "I'm not gonna leave American troops over there if they aren't granted immunity from Iraqi law." Meaning: "I don't want our troops charged with war crimes or whatever trumped-up phoniness unless the Iraqis give us immunity in the status of forces agreement." Well, the New York Times ran a story a little over a month ago that says the Iraqis did indeed promise immunity; Obama rejected it. The reason is: Obama didn't want Bush's war in Iraq to have resulted in a stable democracy there.
'Extortion 17' attack worst single loss of U.S. military life in Afghanistan campaign
Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch this week asked the federal courts for an order that the government agencies review their records about the Aug. 6, 2011, disaster for the U.S. military and respond with information about documents he’s seeking.
It was a U.S. Boeing CH47 Chinook military helicopter, call sign Extortion 17, that was shot down while hauling a quick reaction force of Navy SEALs near Kabul, Afghanistan. Enemy fighters reportedly used a rocket-propelled grenade to hit the aircraft, which plummeted to the ground. Killed were 25 American special ops fighters, as well as five Army National Guard and Reserve crew members as well as seven Afghan commandos and one Afghan interpreter. Some of the members of the fighting unit were members of Navy SEAL Team 6, and the attack happened only a short time after Vice President Joe Biden revealed to the world that it was that team that had gone into Pakistan to remove Sept. 11 terror attack instigator Osama bin Laden. They ended up killing him. It sought a long list of documents about suspicious circumstances apparent in the tragedy, including the decision “to invite a Muslim cleric to pray at the ramp ceremony in Afghanistan for the … U.S. servicemen.” Also, there are questions about the “missing” black box, the seven Afghani military members who were scheduled to be on the flight, but weren’t, and the seven Afghanis who replaced them. Also, there are questions about reports that it was known that 100 Taliban members had traveled to that location to attack the mission, and questions about Biden’s “public disclosures” of military information that normally is kept extremely quiet – the identities of those involved in a high-profile military mission. In a new commentary released at the same time as word about the court filing against the Obama administration, Klayman noted that it’s never been easy to get information under the Freedom of Information Act. Read Klayman’s commentary here: “But he said Obama has taken the position to a new level. “As a result, various public interest groups, the media and the citizenry in general have been stymied from learning the full truth about the myriad of scandals rocking the Obama administration, everything from IRS-gate, to Benghazi-gate, to Fast and Furious-gate, and Extortion 17-gate, where 17 Navy SEALS (including some who went on the mission that killed Osama Bin Laden), 5 other special ops forces and eight other servicemen died at the hands of the Taliban in a raid that some observers, like myself who represents some of the families of our heroes, feel was possibly compromised not just by the corrupt Afghani government that is infiltrated with Muslim terrorists but perhaps within our own government, including military brass,” he wrote. The wrongful death lawsuit, filed some months ago, seeks more than $600 million in damages from the Taliban, al-Qaida, Iran, Afghanistan and others for the deaths of members of the U.S. military’s SEAL Team 6. The case alleges racketeering, terrorism and murder. It charges the terror groups are liable under America’s Anti-Terrorism Act for harboring or concealing terrorists, providing material support to a terror organization, wrongful death and more. The case traces back to Feb. 23, 1998, when the “terrorist organization Defendant Taliban, in concert with the terrorist organization Defendant al-Qaida, led by master terrorist leader Osama bin Laden, issued a Fatwah (Religious Decree), dictating to all Muslim people to kill Americans and their allies – civilians and military – declaring that the slaying of Americans is an individual duty for every Muslim.”
The parents of a SEAL Team 6 member who died in Afghanistan have called on President Barack Obama to resign, saying that his "cowardly lack of leadership" in handling the barbaric Islamic State threatens U.S. and global security. In an open letter published at WorldTribune.com, Billy and Karen Vaughn, whose son Aaron died in 2011, wrote that they were stunned by Obama’s decision to go golfing directly after giving a somber speech about the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the jihadists, also known as ISIS. "As commander-in-chief, your actions, or lack thereof, Mr. President, cost lives," said the Vaughns, whose son was killed in action when a Chinook helicopter was shot down over Afghanistan with 30 American soldiers on board. "As you bumble about in your golf cart, slapping on a happy face and fist-pounding your buddies, your cowardly lack of leadership has left a gaping hole — not only in America’s security but the security of the entire globe. Your message has come across loud and clear, sir: You are not up to this job.
In the wake of Donald Trump’s stunning White House victory, radio host Rush Limbaugh wasted no time attacking President Obama and Democrat policies Tuesday, calling Trump’s win “a total repudiation” of Barack Obama’s presidency. “It was a total repudiation of the Obama presidency and every aspect of it. It was a total repudiation of the Democrat Party by the people I always describe as those who make this country work,” Limbaugh said during his post-election analysis Wednesday. “It’s a full repudiation of Obamacare(DemocrapCare) . It’s a full repudiation of OWEbama economics.”
1) Nearly Doubling The National Debt: Let’s see, what was it that Barack Obama said about our debt back in 2008 when he was trying to convince Americans to vote him into office? 2) Unleashing The Genie From The Nuclear Weapons Bottle In The Middle East: 3) Facilitating Illegal Immigration: 4) Encouraging Racial Polarization: 5) Losing A War We Had Already Won In Iraq:
9) Obama committed numerous impeachable acts. In 2014, Andrew C. McCarthy, former Assistant US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, laid out 7 impeachable crimes committed by Obama, some of which I listed above. They were:
A- The President’s Willful Refusal to Execute the Laws Faithfully and Usurpation of the Legislative Authority of Congress.
B- Usurping the Constitutional Authority and Prerogatives of Congress.
C- Dereliction of duty as Commander-in-Chief.
D- Fraud perpetrated against the American people.
E- Obama’s illegal immigration policies.
F- Justice Department’s alleged failure to execute the laws faithfully.
G- Undermining the constitutional rights of the American people.
I’m sure that over the course of the next couple of decades, there will be volumes written about how Barack Obama was by far the worst president in American history, but I don’t have the time or space to list them all here.
To paraphrase Abraham Lincoln: It’s a good thing the left(Democraps) loves the poor---they’ve made so many of them. The left often invokes the name of the poor. They claim to do so much of what they do to help the poor. But it appears they just want their votes. Leftist policies to help the poor have been routinely shown to fail the poor because they worsen the families of the poor. And the family, by God’s design, has been repeatedly been shown to be the key to upward mobility.
A former Army intelligence analyst, Manning has been serving a 35-year sentence for leaking more than 700,000 classified government and military documents to WikiLeaks, along with some battlefield video. She was convicted in military court in 2013 of six violations of the Espionage Act and 14 other offenses and has spent more than six years behind bars. She asked Obama last November to commute her sentence to time served.
(Owebenedict message being a traitor is ok as Oweblamer loves traitors and deserters like Bergdahl too.) By commuting Manning’s richly deserved sentence, Obama is sending a horrible message to dedicated U.S. public servants, in and out of uniform, that honoring their responsibility to keep national security secrets from the public eye isn’t all that important. Manning downloaded 400,000 classified files from the Iraq war, some 91,000 files from the Afghan war, around 250,000 U.S. diplomatic cables (emails), sensitive and classified U.S. airstrike videos, and classified documents and files from Guantanamo Bay, including classified assessments of Guantanamo terrorist detainees. Manning placed that material on a SD-type card, and took it. Manning then gave that highly classified and sensitive material to WikiLeaks, knowing full well that it would (1) publish the material and (2) that the material could and likely would fall into the hands of our enemies. The Army charged Manning with, among other things, aiding the enemy—a crime that under certain circumstances could result in the death penalty. Eventually, Manning decided to plead guilty instead of contesting the charges against him. The maximum possible sentence to those charges to which Manning pleaded guilty was 136 years. The “mercy” that some argue for was actually granted by the trial judge: She didn’t sentence Manning to the 50 or 100 or 136 years Manning could have served.
A Jewish state assemblyman in New York is also leading an effort to get Sen. Schumer to renounce his support for Ellison for DNC chairman. Peterson suggests it is a time for choosing for Jews in the Democratic Party. “There should be a mass exodus of Jewish Americans from the Democratic Party,” Peterson said. “The fact that Ellison is a frontrunner for the DNC chair position indicates that the Democratic Party is anti-Israel and anti-Jewish. Ellison is a black bigot who hates Jews. If Ellison becomes chair it means that Jews are no longer welcome in the Democratic Party. Any Jewish American who supports the DNC is funding their own demise.” Colin Flaherty, who chronicled nationwide black mob violence against whites in his book “White Girl Bleed A Lot,” argues racial grievances are driving the modern Democratic Party. “If black people want to support Ellison because he is the major black candidate, well, I suppose it is their privilege to support someone whose only claim to fame is that he hates America,” he said. “This guy is a disaster on every level. Peterson believes Ellison’s prominence proves his contention the Democrats are a “far-left, hateful, separatist party.” “They’re anti-family, anti-military, and most have no respect for the U.S. Constitution,” he charged. “The party is still as evil today as it was when it was run by pro-slavery Ku-Klux-Klan supporters and segregationists. The party today is more sophisticated and they’re stealthier in the way they operate and how they exploit blacks and women in order to maintain power, but they’re still evil.” But for his part, Elder can’t help but endorse Ellison – though not for the reasons the Minnesota congressman would like. “As a flame-throwing, race card-dealing, extreme leftist, Ellison is exactly the wrong person for the job,” Elder joked. “So I hope they hire him.”
Zullo explained the investigation found that some of the images on the Obama document image apparently were copied from an original birth certificate that belongs to a woman named Johanna Ah’nee. But Ah’nee said she obtained a copy of her birth certificate and kept it locked in her own files until after the Obama image was released. At about that time, she revealed it to WND senior writer Jerry Corsi, who was reporting on the dispute. Zullo told how the investigation launched by Arpaio at the request of constituents took him to Hawaii. If Ah’nee’s copy of birth certificate had not been circulated, posted online or otherwise made available, he concludes that only the Hawaiian government, which had the document image, could have used it to copy elements onto Obama’s. The evidence “pointed to an inside job,” he said. “The nine points of forgery between the Johanna Ah’nee birth certificate and Obama’s [long-form birth certificate] prove convincingly that the Ah’nee birth certificate was the source document from which the Obama LFBC was created.”
Because we want a sovereign nation, closed borders, the rule of law followed and we don’t want terrorists brought in by the fricking plane full, the left paints us as bigots and haters. We are patriots and those who love our country and the laws and principles she was founded on. Bernie not so much. He sucks at economics and basic math, he thinks moral, upright Americans are hatemongers and he wants the government to rule every part of our lives. Everything will be free, but you’ll be taxed to death to get it.
(You and our loved ones are in danger thanks to Owebummer, Biden, Hillary, Democraps all for the Owebummer retreat/withdrawal out of Iraq, Hillary’s Libya war and basic cowardice, appeasement and Democrap Vietnam process to demoralize, defund and defang our war efforts..) The FBI and members of Congress confirm ISIS has been creating high-quality, fake passports for travel to Europe, the U.S. and many other countries who have already been dispersed to their destinations. U.S. Rep. Stephen F. Lynch said he has been briefed on the ISIS passport threat, adding both the FBI and federal immigration officials have confirmed the security nightmare. "This is a reason for very high concern, especially with the number of refugees piling into Germany and France," Lynch said. Lynch added ISIS got its hands on blank passports and the machine needed to print them when the group's fighters overran Deir ez-Zour in eastern Syria more than a year ago. "They can put together a very high quality counterfeit passport," said Lynch.
Former CIA official Dr. Peter Pry warns, "There is an imminent threat from ISIS to the national electric grid and not just to a single U.S. city." Dr. Pry says that attacks on just 9 of the nation's 55,000 electrical substations could result in nationwide blackouts for up to 18 months. the grid's vulnerability to physical, electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and cyber-attack by ISIS and other terrorist groups. Without access to a generator, your fridge, electric range and microwave would be dead. All the food in your fridge and freezer would spoil. Your well couldn't pump any fresh water into your house. And even if you don't have a well, a total grid failure means no fresh water to drink, cook, or clean with. Veteran news anchor Ted Koppel just wrote a book called Lights Out that details this exact scenario. And CENTCOM General Lloyd Austin says, "It's not a question of if, it's a question of when."

They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship.

http://www.investors.com/NewsAndAnalysis/Article/504749/200908281827/Government-Isnt-The-Only-Answer-To-Helping-Needy-Get-Health-Care.aspx The Founding Fathers vigorously debated the role of the federal government and defined it in Article I, Section 8 — spelling out the specific duties and obligations of the federal government.Most notably, these included providing a military for national security, coining money, establishing rules for immigration and citizenship, establishing rules for bankruptcy, setting up a postal system, establishing trademark and copyright rules, and setting up a legal system to resolve disputes.Charity is not there.Congress began ignoring its lack of authority for charity before the ink dried on the Constitution. When Congress appropriated $15,000 to assist French refugees in 1792, James Madison — a Founding Father and principal author of the Constitution — wrote: "I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution, which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents."What about the Constitution's general welfare clause?Madison said: "With respect to the words general welfare, I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers (enumerated in the Constitution) connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."And consider government welfare's effect on people's willingness to give. During the Great Depression — before the social programs that today we accept as givens (Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid) — charitable giving increased dramatically. After FDR began signing social programs into law, charitable giving continued, but not at the same rate. People felt that they had given at the office and/or that government was handling it.Government "charity" is simply less efficient than private charity. Every dollar extracted from taxpayers, sent to Washington and then routed to the beneficiary loses about 70 cents in transfer costs — salaries, rent and other expenses.The Salvation Army, by contrast, spends 2 cents in operating costs, with the remainder going to fundraising and the beneficiary. It achieves this, among other ways, by relying on volunteers to do much of the work.Three in four families donate to charity, averaging more than 3% of their income, with two-thirds going to secular charities. In total, Americans give more than $300 billion a year — more than the gross domestic product of Finland or Ireland. More than half of families also donate their time.Absent (unconstitutional) government programs, individuals and charitable organizations can, will and — in many cases — already do provide services to the needy. A limited government — one that taxes only to fulfill its permissible duties — would allow even more disposable time and money.People-to-people charity is more efficient, less costly, more humane and compassionate, and more likely to inspire change and self-sufficiency in the beneficiary.
(Know it all Obama & Kerry - A history lesson for them or Fundamental Transformation with extra Hope & Change for us?)
Bill Clinton, who announced a nuclear arms deal with North Korea in 1994 that ended up failing miserably, used optimistic language in his speech that sounded remarkably similar to language used by the Obama administration after this weekend’s deal with Iran. “Today, I want to announce an important step forward in the situation in North Korea,” Clinton said in a White House address on June 22, 1994. ”This afternoon we have received formal confirmation from North Korea that it will freeze the major elements of its nuclear program… In response, we are informing the North Koreans that we are ready to go forward with a new round of talks in Geneva early next month.” At the time, North Korea did not have confirmed nuclear weapons. Clinton assured the American people that North Korea consented to stopping key aspects of its nuclear program and to allow International Atomic Energy Agency (IEAE) inspectors to monitor the Pyongyang nuclear facility for “verification of North Korea’s agreement.” We will suspend our efforts to pursue sanctions if there was a verifiable freeze on the nuclear program while the talks continue,” Clinton said in response to a question from reporter Helen Thomas. Clinton called the deal a “very positive development.” North Korea’s first nuclear weapon test occurred in October 2006, just more than twelve years after Clinton’s deal. Clinton’s announcement sounded similar to Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent defense of the Iran deal.
Echoes of Clinton in Obama’s awful Iran deal In announcing his nuclear framework, the president declared : “This agreement is good for the United States, good for our allies, and good for the safety of the entire world.” He said the deal requires them to “freeze [their] existing nuclear program and to accept international inspection of all existing facilities.” He said the agreement “does not rely on trust. Compliance will be certified by the International Atomic Energy Agency.” The president who spoke those words was not Barack Obama. It was Bill Clinton, on Oct 18, 1994, announcing that his administration had reached agreement on a nuclear framework with North Korea. Twelve years later, North Korea exploded a nuclear bomb. And today, Pyongyang is reportedly a few years away from having as many as 100 nuclear weapons . The words may be similar, but the framework Obama reached with Iran is actually worse than the one Clinton negotiated with North Korea.
More than 200 retired U.S. generals and admirals added their names to the Iran nuclear agreement’s opposition this week after they sent a letter to top congressional leaders pressing lawmakers to reject the accord. The former senior military officers contend that the deal threatens U.S. national security, noting the estimated $150 billion that will pour into Tehran if sanctions are lifted and will provide the regime with more funds to support terrorism. The letter also points to limitations of international inspections, claiming that the current framework is unverifiable and lacks credibility. Congress has until Sept. 17 to accept or reject the deal.
You don't need long-range ballistic missiles for conventional warheads. The only reason they have these intercontinental missiles that they're developing is for a nuclear-delivery capability." He added that "we need to treat Iran much differently with greater level of suspicion and doubt." Vallely joined nearly 200 retired military generals and admirals in sending a letter to congressional leaders this week urging them to oppose the Iran nuclear deal after Congress returns from its recess next month. He said the military leaders released the letter "so that people can contact their congressmen, their senators and prevent this deal from even being signed. He said that the actions of President Barack Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and top presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett were "really bordering on treasonous grounds right now."
On a weekly basis, Iranian leaders incite crowds with shouts of “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” We’re the great Satan. Israel is the little Satan. They want our destruction---so why would our government ever pave the way toward Iran possibly getting a nuclear bomb? Even though millions of Iranians would die through retaliation, they would ostensibly die as martyrs for Jihad, therefore they’d go to paradise. Although Iran is Shiite (representing roughly 15% of all Islam), the vast majority of Islam, the Sunni population, includes many radical Muslims as well. ISIS and Al-Qaeda are Sunni groups. Hezbollah is Shiite. One is tempted to say, pick your poison. “….Bukhari 4,52,267 Mohammed cried out, ‘Jihad is deceit.’ “Bukhari 5,59,369 Bin Maslama volunteered to kill an enemy for Mohammed, then said, ‘Give me permission to deceive him with lies so that my plot will succeed.’ Mohammed replied, ‘You may speak falsely to him.’” And they summarize all this in a sentence: “If deception to an enemy is advantageous to Islam, it is not a sin.”
Iran's Supreme Leader has now published his own version of "Mein Kampf," Hitler's infamous 1925-26 autobiographical tract against the Jews. A copy of Khamenei's "Palestine" landed in the hands of Gatestone Europe Chairman Amir Taheri.
As the Iranian expat wrote in the New York Post, the ayatollah uses words of hate and destruction in the volume, like " 'nabudi,' which means 'annihilation' ... 'imha,' which means 'fading out,' and, finally, there is 'zaval,' meaning 'effacement.'" And Khamenei argues that his strategy for making the state of Israel nothing more than a memory is based on "well-established Islamic principles," one of which, as Taheri describes it, "is that a land that falls under Muslim rule, even briefly, can never again be ceded to non-Muslims." Teheri points out that this is a widespread Islamic belief: "Dozens of maps circulate in the Muslim world showing the extent of Muslim territories lost to the Infidel that must be recovered," including "large parts of Russia and Europe, almost a third of China, the whole of India and parts of the Philippines and Thailand." Israel is "adou" and "doshman," translated as "enemy" and "foe," to be targeted for special attention because it is the "ally of the American Great Satan," As Khamenei boasts in the book, "We have intervened in anti-Israel matters, and it brought victory in the 33-day war by Hezbollah against Israel in 2006 and in the 22-day war between Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip." And what replaces the vacuum of power left in the absence of the Jewish state and its "Great Satan" sponsor, America? According to the ayatollah, "the hegemony of Iran will be promoted." Does "Iranian hegemony" not sound similar to the Nazis' infamous demands for German "Lebenstraum" or "living room," carried out by conquering other ethnic groups' lands?
It’s amazing how Democrats nuke up terrorist regimes, first with President Bill Clinton with North Korea and now with President Obama and Iran. Iran’s military is no match for America’s but Obama is making Iran look powerful because he refuses to stand up to them. President Reagan negotiated with the Soviets because they already had nukes, not to give them more, and even walked away from the negotiating table. He would have never cut a deal with a third-world terrorist regime spreading terrorism, which is exactly what Obama has done. If the Senate had real Republican leadership, it would’ve treated any agreement with Iran as a treaty. Just because Obama says it’s not a treaty doesn’t mean the Senate has to capitulate. We cannot leave it up to one man to decide the fate of our nation
(Owebummer & Democraps coddle terrorists & dictators; weak on our enemies, hard on our allies..) North Korean leader Kim Jong-un asserted last month that his country had built a hydrogen nuclear bomb to “defend its sovereignty and the dignity of the nation.” Kim’s initial assertion about hydrogen bombs was met with expert skepticism, and it is more likely that Pyongyang has achieved a boosted fission rather than a fusion bomb. Such a weapon would be larger than its first three nuclear tests (and the 1945 U.S. atomic weapons) but not of the magnitude of a hydrogen fusion bomb. If confirmed, North Korea’s fourth nuclear test is a dangerous development. Coupled with ongoing development of several different missile systems, North Korea poses an increasing and direct threat to the United States, South Korea, and Japan. Experts estimate that Pyongyang currently has 10-16 nuclear weapons with potentially as many as 50-100 by 2020. North Korea has likely already achieved warhead miniaturization, the ability to place nuclear weapons on its medium-range missiles, and a preliminary ability to reach the continental United States with a missile. Washington should immediately request a U.N. Security Council meeting to produce a new resolution to impose stronger punitive sanctions and close loopholes, such as including Article 42 of Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter, which allows for enforcement by military means. Washington should call upon all U.N. member nations to fully implement existing sanctions to hinder North Korea’s procurement and export of missile-related and WMD-related items. In addition to U.N. actions, Washington should augment U.S. sanctions. President Barack Obama’s assertion that North Korea is the most heavily sanctioned country in the world is simply not true. The Obama administration has not fully implemented U.S. laws and has targeted fewer North Korean entities than those of the Balkans, Burma, Cuba, Iran, and Zimbabwe. The U.S. should target financial and regulatory measures against any government, financial, or business entity assisting North Korean nuclear, missile, and conventional arms; criminal activities; money laundering; or import of luxury goods. North Korea’s nuclear test is a serious and irreparable violation of numerous U.N. Security Council resolutions.
In reality, Obama is quite possibly one of the biggest liars our nation has ever suffered in the White House. Thankfully, somebody was kind enough to compile a list of some of the biggest whoppers Obama has told over the past seven years: If you think this list of lies from Obama is bad, check out the Young Conservatives and their entire list of 68 documented falsehoods (lies & more lies) from our less-than-honest chief executive.
(moving on up the ladder) One of the biggest problems in analyzing poverty is the vision that the poor are permanently poor. A University of Michigan study followed specific working Americans from 1975 to 1991. It found that particular individuals who were in the bottom 20 percent in terms of income saw their real incomes rise at a much higher rate than those in the top 20 percent. An IRS study, covering the period from 1996 to 2005, found a similar result. Workers whose incomes were in the bottom 20 percent saw their incomes rise by 91 percent. Over the same span, those in the top 1 percent saw their incomes fall by 26 percent. The outcomes of both studies give lie to the claim that "the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer." "Wealth, Poverty and Politics: An International Perspective" is a true gem in terms of exposing the demagoguery and sheer ignorance of politicians and intellectuals in their claims about wealth and poverty. Sowell discusses a number of factors that help explain wealth and income differences among people and nations around the world. They include geographical, cultural, social and political factors, which Sowell explains in individual chapters. How many times have we been told that the rich are prospering at the expense of the poor? Sowell points out that most households in the bottom 20 percent in income have no one working. How can someone who isn't producing anything have something taken from him? Poverty occurs automatically and has been mankind's standard fare throughout its entire history. It is high productivity and affluence that are rare in mankind's history and require an explanation. Government definitions of poverty make talking about income gaps and disparities meaningless. If everyone's income doubled or even tripled, poverty would certainly be reduced, but income gaps and disparities would widen. Calls for raising income tax rates to make "the rich" pay their undefined "fair share" are an exercise in futility because income taxes do not touch wealth. Higher income taxes are a tax on people trying to accumulate wealth.
Cruz launched into the moderators about their debate questions. "You know, let me say something at the outset. The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don't trust the media." Cruz added, "Contrast with the Democratic debate, where every fawning question from the media was, 'Which of you is more handsome and why?'" The crowd laughed with amusement. "Let me be clear. The men and women on this stage have more ideas, more experience, more common sense than every participant in the Democratic debate," Cruz said. "That debate reflected a debate between the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks. And nobody watching at home believed that any of the moderators had any intention of voting in a Republican primary.
"The government has lied to you and they have stolen from you," Christie told listeners. " They told you your money is in a trust fund . … Social Security is going to be insolvent in seven to eight years." He said his plan will save $1 trillion. Noting that Hillary Clinton has proposed increasing Social Security taxes, he asked, "If somebody has stolen from you, are you going to give them more?"
Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who had a stellar night, piled on during a debate over political action committees. "Democrats have the ultimate Super PAC. It's called the mainstream media."
"Isn't it strange that after a bombing, everyone blames the bomber, his upbringing, his environment, his culture but ... after a shooting, the problem is the gun?" In other words, after a shooting, it is the gun, an inanimate object, that is the culprit, but after a bombing, it is not the bomb that receives the blame but the evil individual. In both cases it is the evil individual who is to blame.
Ronald Reagan had it right when he said, "We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions." Speaking of guns, the letter has a 1950s photo of high school girls at an indoor shooting range. The photo caption states: "Back in the 1950s and even later, many high schools had shooting ranges. Students even brought their own rifles to school." It asks, "What changed in society that we could trust such activities then, but not now?" Have guns become more evil or have people become more evil? "Get it straight: Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC ... are taxpayer-funded handouts, and shouldn't be called entitlements. Social Security and Veterans Benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients." .
