It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Obama Rips Question on Hostages in Iran

CBS News’s Major Garrett asked President Obama at a press conference Wednesday if he was “content” with four Americans held in Iranian jails while his administration celebrated the nuclear deal. “That’s nonsense and you should know better,” Obama bit back. The Daily Beast’s Shane Harris reported yesterday that the Americans came up during negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program. “We believe very strongly that this is an opportunity for Iran to let the Americans come home,” an administration official said.

OBAMA SIGNS ‘MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING’ WITH PUTIN AS RUSSIAN JETS BUZZ US PILOTS
Geoffrey Grider | October 20, 2015 | 9 Comments

U.S. PILOTS HAVE BEEN TOLD NOT TO REACT TO AGGRESSIVE RUSSIA MILITARY AIRCRAFT FLYING ABOVE SYRIA, ACCORDING TO A U.S. OFFICIAL.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Russia is having it’s way in the Middle East, acting at will with impunity. As Putin pretends to be bombing ISIS, what is actually happening is that he is shoring  up Assad’s power base in Syria. Obama’s reaction to all this? As Commander-in-chief, he has signed off on a “no-response” protocol that causes American pilots to not react, even as they are buzzed by SU-24’s at extremely close range. The same nations that allowed Hitler to take Poland and Czechoslovakia are allowing Putin to take Ukraine and Syria. If you’ll check your calendar, you will see it’s 1938. Welcome to peace in our time.

It comes after recent reports that Russian jets had flown so close to U.S. planes that pilots were able to see each other. But the official, who is said to be familiar with the incident, told CNN that pilots have been instructed to proceed with normal aviation safety procedures.

The official said Russian planes had flown extremely close to U.S. planes twice in the past two weeks – one flew within 500ft and another, on Thursday, came within 1,500 feet of two U.S. jets. However, there was no suggestion of hostile intent or action in either incident.

russian-su-24-jet-fighter
America is getting used to this view which sadly has become the new normal.
And today, the United States and Russia signed a memorandum of understanding that includes steps their pilots should take in order to avoid inadvertent clashes in the air over Syria as the two countries conduct separate bombing campaigns.

PENTAGON PRESS SECRETARY PETER COOK TOLD REPORTERS: ‘WITH TODAY’S SIGNATURES, THE MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING IS NOW IN EFFECT.

‘That was signed a short time ago, earlier today.’

But he said the full text of the memo would not be released at Russia’s request, but said it included specific protocols for air crews to follow, plus the creation of a ground communications link between the two sides in the event that air communications fail.

Cook said the memo calls for aircraft to maintain a safe distance, but he declined to be more specific about whether the protocols included specific distances.

He added that the agreement included coalition aircrafts. Coalition members include Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

‘The fact that we have had to resort to a memorandum of understanding gives you an indication of our concern about Russia’s activities but (also) our willingness to work with the Russians when it’s in our own interest,’ Cook added.

neville-chamberlain-peace-in-our-time
Neville Chamberlain had a ‘memorandum of understanding’, too. How’d that work out?
The U.S. State Department said the agreement is only about keeping pilots safe. Spokesman John Kirby said: ‘It’s not a treaty of cooperation or anything like that … It doesn’t connote cooperation or coordination or joint targeting.’

The issue of aircraft safety started after Russia started bombing targets in Syria last month. Moscow claims it is attacking Islamic State, but many of its air strikes have hit territory held by other rebel groups fighting against Russia’s Syrian ally, President Bashar al-Assad.

EARLIER THIS MONTH, THE PENTAGON SAID U.S.-LED COALITION AIRCRAFTS BOMBING ISLAMIC STATE IN SYRIA WERE RE-ROUTED AT LEAST ONCE TO AVOID A CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH RUSSIAN PLANES.

‘The U.S. and Russia will form a working group to discuss any implementation issues that follow,’ Cook said, during a press briefing. Meanwhile, Moscow confirmed it had received the memorandum on preventing mid-air incidents from the U.S. military.

According to Ria-Novosti, Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said: ‘The memorandum contains a number of rules and restrictions aimed at preventing incidents between American and Russian plans.’

Russia had asked for ‘deconfliction’ talks with the United States after Moscow began bombing Syria on September 30. source

Clinton Told Chelsea Truth, Lied to American People on Benghazi
Called Benghazi an attack by terror group


Hillary Clinton and her department spent days after the Benghazi attack of September 11, 2012 telling the American people that the attack was the result of an "offensive" video posted to YouTube but on the night of the attack, she told her daughter it was a terror attack.

An email sent to Chelsea Clinton's online pseudonym Diane Reynolds at 11:12 pm on that day clearly said the attack in Libya was the result of an al-Qaida affiliated group.



"Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an Al Queda-like [sic] group," Clinton wrote. The email and transcripts of phone calls between Clinton and foreign leaders were read out by Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan.

The transcript of a phone call with Libyan President Mohammed Magariaf made minutes after the email to Chelsea, Secretary Clinton says clearly that the al-Qaida linked group Ansar al-Sharif was claiming responsibility for the attack.

Under questioning before the House Select Committee, Clinton said the conflicting statements of the violence being a planned attack by terror groups or spontaneous protest prompted by a YouTube video were the result of so much information coming in at once. And yet the transcript of another call days later shows that when not speaking to the American people, Clinton stuck with the line that Benghazi was a terror attack.

"We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack - not a protest," Clinton said in a phone call with Egypt's then Prime Minister Hisham Kandil. Clinton went on in the call to blame an al-Qaida affiliated group.

Almost a week after the attack on September 16, UN Ambassador Susan Rice went on several Sunday talk shows to continue pushing the message that the Benghazi attacks were the result of anger over a video.

The House Select Committee on Benghazi has been trying to get to the truth of the attacks for some time but have been stymied by Clinton's lack of openness and her use of a secret home-brew email server. She initially refused to hand over all emails from the account to the committee and then handed over a server that had been wiped clean. Backups of the server and technology have been used to uncover material that is shedding light on what really happened the night that four Americans were killed in an obvious terrorist attack.

Bad news but whats the point?

It's come to a point now where our leaders are doing wickedness at an all-time low, but the masses are turning a blind eye to it.

Remember the 90's when everyone made a big deal about Lewinsky. Now? Even these GOP-voting (Apostate)churches are indifferent about Obama.

My take on this? This country has been put under mass hypnosis - it seems like they care much more about football games and entertainment, more than getting saved and obeying God's word.

I don't know when the Time of Jacob's Trouble period will hit, but whether it's Hillary or Trump next year, it won't matter - this country is getting what it deserves.

The people should fear God and His judgement, I`m not sure this place will still be here to witness the time of Jacobs trouble. I`m pretty concerned that it won`t be. The West has ceased to be the center of Christianity, the heart of it if you can accept the analogy, has moved into the 3rd world and it is often seen in scripture that the righteous will go through the judgement that comes upon the unrighteous. Kinda the wrong place at the wrong time thing and that is what worrys me. I don`t pray for this place because I know God has already made up his mind. It`s already too late.

"Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."

The 7 seals of Revelation follow a sequence that is consistent with the signs of Matthew 24. The first 4 seals are consistent with Matthew 24:6-8. These events end with the death of 25% of the world population Rev 6:8. In my opinion it will reach the 25% in the aftermath of WW3. WW3 is preceded by increasing tension among nations Rev 6:4, and economic collapse Rev 6:5-6. The aftermath of WW3 in my opinion creates the hunger and disease of Rev 6:8. Nuclear war driving dangerous animals into contact with people Rev 6:8. All of it becoming a pseudo Armagedden that will bring out the anti christ.

Then you have the false peace, anti christ and they say peace and safety fulfilling the requirement of 2nd Thessalonians 2:3-5.

The time of Jacobs trouble is the 5th seal, Matthew 24:9.

It`s not necessary for this place to be here for that.

Even if the pre trib idea were correct (it isn`t), you still don`t get a Rapture until after the events of the first 4 seals produce the death of 25% of the worlds population.

Of course: Justice Department will file no charges against Lois Lerner

I suppose there was no other way this could have ended. The Obama-era Justice Department does not exist to enforce the laws on the books except to the extent that doing so is politically helpful to Democrats, so just as her predecessor Eric Holder would have done, Attorney General Loretta Lynch has declined to bring any charges against Lois Lerner for using her position at the IRS to harass nonprofit conservative groups.

Obama Readies Biggest Reach of Presidential Power Yet
11/15/15

With only 14 months left in office, President Obama is set to issue an executive order in what could be the most aggressive use of his authority to date: unilaterally closing the federal detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

“At this point, I would not take anything off the table in terms of the president doing everything that he can to achieve this critically important national security objective,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters earlier this month during a briefing.

The administration is likely to submit a plan for how it would shutter the controversial site to Congress in the next few weeks, if not days. There are still 112 detainees at Guantanamo, of whom 53 have been deemed eligible for transfer.

The prison has cost the American taxpayers nearly $5 billion since it opened in 2002, with an average price tag of around $495 million every year for the past five years, according to the American Civil Liberties Union.

Obama pledged during his 2008 campaign that he would close the detention facility; he has since repeatedly promised to take action, citing the exorbitant cost of running the prison and its use as a recruiting tool for terrorist organizations around the globe.

His plan, however, could be reconsidered in light of the latest attack by ISIS in Paris, which killed 129 people and injured 352—a massacre that French President Hollande has called an “act of war.”

Republican and Democratic majorities in Congress have passed multiple laws to check the president’s ability to close the site. The latest came earlier this month when Congress overwhelmingly approved the fiscal 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

Related: The Fight Against ISIS Has New Price Tag: $5 Billion and Counting

The $607 billion policy roadmap for the Pentagon contains several provisions aimed at stopping the administration from shutting down the facility, including a ban on bringing detainees into the United States.

Obama is expected to sign the bill later this month, making a unilateral attempt to shutter the prison his last resort before his term expires. Such a move would set the stage for an enormous test of his presidential power, which took a blow last week when a federal appeals court blocked Obama’s executive order to stop the deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants.

 

Capitol Hill Democrats have expressed modest support for an executive order on Guantanamo, waiting to see the administration’s plan before they fall in line behind their party’s leader. Republicans in both chambers have already begun to dig in their heels, signaling they would challenge the administration on a variety of fronts.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) demurred on what action the Senate might take against the president, telling reporters last week, “We’ll see what he does.” Senate Armed Services Committee chair John McCain (R-AZ), a proponent of closing Guantanamo, has threatened a court battle if Obama tries to circumvent Congress.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon has dispatched a small team in three states to survey existing military detention sites as possible alternatives to Guantanamo. GOP senators from Colorado, Kansas and South Carolina have vowed to use every legislative tool available to them to blunt the White House. They believe that moving terrorists into the U.S. amounts to putting a big, red bulls-eye on the facilities and the surrounding communities for other extremists to target.

Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) has placed a hold on Obama’s nominee to be the next Army secretary, a hint of how lawmakers could potentially jam up the administration. Newly elected House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) has also spoken out against a possible go-it-alone approach.

“He can’t. He [Obama] doesn’t have the authority to do it,” he said in an interview on Bloomberg TV’s With All Due Respect before the last GOP presidential debate.

The “language is very clear that he can’t transfer the prisoners,” Ryan added, noting the 2016 NDAA text was similar to the kind Democrats put in the bill when they ran Congress.

“The law is the law; it’s just that clear,” he said.

Between Obama’s desire to burnish his legacy and the GOP’s strategy to make sure Obama doesn’t do “more damage” while still in office ahead of the 2016 presidential election, a major Constitutional showdown is brewing.

In a recent Washington Post op-ed, former White Counsel Gregory and former State Department Guantanamo envoy Cliff Sloan, argued the president should ignore the restrictions imposed by Congress.

The president “in his capacity as commander in chief, has the exclusive authority to make tactical military decisions. Congress can declare war but cannot direct the conduct of military campaigns,” they wrote. “It can pass generally applicable military regulations but cannot direct the military’s response to contingent developments.”

Last week, Benjamin Wittes, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, wrote that the view such restrictions are unconstitutional “would be a bold assertion of executive authority.”

“The president would be suddenly defying laws he has consistently observed. And he would be doing so only at the point he had lost the ability to get them changed,” he wrote.

AS PARIS BURNED, OBAMA WAS ORDERING MORE MUSLIM MIGRANTS TO BE ADMITTED TO U.S.

The U.S. State Department confirmed the plans to open a refugee settlement processing centre in Erbil, Iraq, before the end of 2015, and to resume refugee processing in Lebanon in early 2016, said spokeswoman Danna Van Brandt.

11/14/15

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS MOVING TO INCREASE AND ACCELERATE THE NUMBER OF SYRIAN REFUGEES WHO MIGHT BE ADMITTED INTO THE UNITED STATES BY OPENING NEW SCREENING OUTPOSTS IN IRAQ AND LEBANON, ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS TOLD REUTERS ON FRIDAY.

EDITOR’S NOTE: EVEN AS THE BULLETS WERE FLYING IN PARIS YESTERDAY DURING THE HORRIFIC ISIS TERROR ATTACK, BARACK OBAMA WAS ORDERING HIS ADMINISTRATION TO FIND WAYS TO DRAMATICALLY INCREASE THE NUMBER OF MUSLIM MIGRANTS HE IS LEGALLY ALLOWED TO LET INTO THE UNITED STATES. IT IS HIS DREAM THAT WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY IN FRANCE WILL SOON BE HAPPENING HERE IN AMERICA. HE IS VERY CLOSE TO SEEING THAT BECOME A REALITY THANKS TO YOU, THE ELECTED LEADERS OF CONGRESS, WHO ALLOW HIM TO DO IT.

The move comes after President Barack Obama pledged in September to admit an additional 10,000 Syrian refugees in 2016, torn by four years of civil war and disorder.

The U.S. State Department confirmed the plans to open a refugee settlement processing centre in Erbil, Iraq, before the end of 2015, and to resume refugee processing in Lebanon in early 2016, said spokeswoman Danna Van Brandt.

The White House would not say how many additional refugees it may take in beyond the 10,000, but two senior administration officials said they are seeking ways to increase the number.

WHITE HOUSE: OBAMA WANTS US TO PREPARE FOR 10,000 SYRIAN REFUGEES NEXT YEAR

“We want to be in a place where we can push out really ambitious goals,” said one of the officials, who spoke to Reuters on the condition of anonymity.

The State Department runs nine screening centres worldwide that serve as meeting points for refugees and U.S. Department of Homeland Security employees who have to decide who is suitable for resettlement in the United States.

THE ADDITIONAL CENTRES WILL DOUBLE THE NUMBER AVAILABLE TO REFUGEES IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

Most Syrians are now screened for potential U.S. resettlement at centres in Istanbul and Amman, Jordan. The new centres are designed to “increase the channels” the United States has for reaching Syrian refugees, the official said.

Amid a tide of refugees in Europe, some congressional Democrats and refugee advocates say the United States should do more for Syrians who often make dangerous journeys to lands where they have no home or means of employment.

HOWEVER, SOME REPUBLICANS HAVE RAISED CONCERNS THAT ALLOWING MORE SYRIANS INTO THE UNITED STATES JEOPARDIZES NATIONAL SECURITY.

In another development, Anne Richard, U.S. assistant secretary of state, told C-SPAN’s Newsmakers program on Friday that wealthy Gulf Arab states such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar as well as the so-called BRICs emerging market nations should do more to help Syrian refugee.

“I would like to see more aid come from the Gulf states that are in the Middle East area and are relatively wealthy compared to Jordan and Lebanon,” she said.  “We would also like to see more from the so-called BRICs — Brazil, Russia, India, China and, to a lesser extent South Africa,” she added. “These are the wealthy states that care about the region that could and should be doing more on the humanitarian side.”

About 250,000 people have died and an estimated four million driven abroad as refugees because of the Syrian conflict, which began in 2011 with protests against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, which has evolved into a full-blown civil war. The majority of the refugees have flowed into neighbouring nations such as Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon but hundreds of thousands have also made their way to Europe. source

This is your tax dollars at work

The Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Office of Screening Coordination in the Department of Homeland Security had one job Thursday: answer questions about the review of Syrian refugees.

She couldn’t do it.

“I would like to see if you could give us some numbers, so that the committee and the American people have this information,” Ohio U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, co-chairman of a joint subcommittee hearing on “Terrorism and the Visa Waiver Program,” told senior DHS employee Kelli Ann Burriesci yesterday.

In a 5 minute exchange posted to YouTube, he questioned: “How many Syrian refugees have entered the United States in the last year?”



“I’m sorry, I didn’t bring any of the refugee numbers with me, because I was prepared to talk about visa waiver, but I can certainly have us send that to you,” she replied.

“Do you know how many Americans have traveled to Syria in the last year?” Jordan pressed.

“I don’t have that number on me either,” Burriesci said.

Jordan: “So don’t know how many Americans have traveled and then returned?”

“I don’t have that number on me,” she said.

“How many visa program overstays are there currently in the United States?” Jordan asked.

Burriesci: “Sorry, I didn’t bring that number with me.”

The exchange clearly frustrated lawmakers.

Jordan: “Ms. Burriesci, when I look at the witness list, you have the longest title: Deputy Assistant Secretary Screening Coordination Office of Policy Department of Homeland Security. … It says screening coordination, now what screening are you coordinating? Is that inter agency or intra agency?”

Burriesci: “It’s both.”

“And the two biggest issues we’re dealing with right now, we had these terrible tragedies, these terrible terrorist attacks, and we’re talking about the refugee issue and the visa waiver program issue, and you can’t give us any numbers on either program?” Jordan questioned.

Burriesci: “So I came prepared to talk about the visa waiver program …”

Jordan cut her off there: “I just asked you how many visa program overstays are there and you said I don’t know.”

Burriesci: “Sir, I don’t have a number.”

“So when I ask you how many overstays of the visa waiver program may have traveled to Syria before they got here, do you know that number?” Jordan continued.

The question prompted Burriesci to attempt to steer the conversation into the details of the program, but Jordan wasn’t having it.

“Do we know if that person who’s here today, maybe not even on an overstay, do we know if that person has been to Syria before they came to the United States? Do we know that?” he questioned.

“ … I don’t know …,” Burriesci replied.

After a brief exchange, a frustrated Jordan tried to coax other information.

“How many American citizens are on the no-fly list right now? Can you give me that number?” he asked.

“I know there are American citizens on the list. It is an extremely small number, but I don’t have my numbers with me …,” Burriesci said.

Jordan summarized, according to BizPac Review:

“Ms. Burriesci, I’ve asked you the number of American’s who’ve traveled to Syria, you don’t know. The number of Americans who may have traveled and returned, you don’t know. The number of Syrian refugees who’ve entered the country in the last year, you don’t know. The number of visa waiver program overstays, you don’t know. The number of visa waiver overstays who may have been to Syria before they came here, you don’t know. And the number of American citizens on the no-fly list and you don’t know. And yet you are the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Screening Coordination, Office of Policy, Department of Homeland Security in front of the oversight committee and you can’t give us one single number to some, I think, pretty basic questions?”

Burriesci, a 1997 graduate of Binghamton University, struggled with other simple questions, as well.

U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, of Utah, also tried to pry out information to no avail, according to a video posted to YouTube.



She couldn’t explain whether most people come into the country by plane or by vehicle or on foot, how the department tracks those who leave by car, the number of people who have come in legally and overstayed, the departments or agencies that have access to the list of people who overstay, the databases the list is entered into, or how DHS asses potential threats among those who overstay.

Chaffetz pointed out that the subcommittee never requested to speak with Burriesci to begin with, and made it clear her non-answers to important national security questions aren’t going to fly.

“The request we sent was for (DHS Secretary) Jay Johnson, and Jay Johnson sent you as the expert on these topics, so this is why I think … Mr. Johnson, the secretary himself, needs to come answer these questions,” he said.

“You strike me as a very nice person, but these are basic questions about the functionality here and when we’re having a congressional hearing it is a waste of this committee’s time to send somebody who doesn’t know the answers to very basic questions,” Chaffetz continued. “ … You are accelerating the need to have multiple hearings on this.”

This spring, Burriesci discussed her role in DHS with Pipe Dream, “Binghamton University’s oldest and largest student newspaper.”

“I work on policies that facilitate the travel of individuals to the United States,” she said proudly in March. “The legitimate issuant of immigration benefits and policy that deters bad guys that threaten the United States.”

Ironically, Burriesci touted her experience and “preparedness” for the 30-something’s blazing-fast path through the ranks of the department.

“People tell me I’m lucky, but luck is when preparedness meets opportunity,” Burriesci said. “I was prepared to step up to the role. I knew my job and had the management skills needed if the opportunity was offered to me.”

When Fox News Host Notes Investigators Concluded There Was No Benghazi ‘Stand Down’ Order, Commando Replies With Just Three Words

Three security operators responsible for guarding the CIA station in Benghazi dismissed on Monday claims they were never told to “stand down” during the night of the deadly 2012 attacks.

“Congressional investigators concluded there was no ‘stand down’ order,” Fox News host Megyn Kelly told the three commandoes.

“That’s just silly,” replied Kris “Tanto” Paronto, a former Army Ranger.

WATCH: Heroes of Benghazi open up in Fox News interview (relevant portion at 13 minute mark)

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2016/01/05/when-fox-news-host-notes-investigators-concluded-there-was-no-benghazi-stand-down-order-commando-replies-with-just-three-words/

The Republican-led House Armed Services Committee concluded in 2014 that there was no military “stand down” order given. That conclusion was drawn from the testimony of nine military officers.

Kelly noted that President Barack Obama and other leaders, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, rely on such reports.

“It’s kind of funny,” John “Tig” Tiegen said. “Everything we testified to they agreed with us 100 percent. … But for some reason they don’t want to believe us that we were told to stand down.”

“Do you have a political motive?” Kelly asked.

“No,” replied the three commandos.

The claim that the security operators were told to “stand down” is nothing new. Mark “Oz” Geist, Paronto and Tiegen made it in their book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” last year. That book, however, has found its way back in the media spotlight as Michael Bay’s film adaption is set to hit theaters this month.

Obama on "Conspiracy" To Take Away Guns: "The United States Was Born Suspicious Of Some Distant Authority"





MARK KELLY: Often what you hear in the debate of expanding background checks to more gun sales, and, as you know, Gabby and I are 100% behind the concept of somebody getting a background check before buying a gun.

But, when we testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, we heard not only from the gun lobby, but from United States Senators that expanding background checks will, not may, will lead to a registry, which will lead to confiscation, which will lead to a tyrannical government.

So, I would like you to explain with 350 million guns in 65 million places, households, from Key West, to Alaska, 350 million objects in 65 million places, if the Federal government wanted to confiscate those objects, how would they do that? (APPLAUSE)

OBAMA: Well, look, first of all, everytime I see Gabby I'm just so thrilled because I visited her in the hospital, and, as I mentioned, I think, in the speech in the White House, as we left the hospital then to go to a memorial service, we got word that Gabby had opened her eyes for the first time.

And, we did not think she was going to be here, and she is, and Mark's just been extraordinary.

And, by the way, Mark's twin brothers up in space right now, and is breaking the record for the longest continuous orbiting of the planet, which is pretty impressive stuff.

What I think Mark is alluding to is what I said earlier, this notion of a conspiracy out there, and it gets wrapped up in concerns about the Federal government.

Now, there's a long history of that, that's in our DNA, you know? The United States was born suspicious of some distant authority...

ANDERSON COOPER, CNN: ... now, let me just jump in here, is it fair to call it a conspiracy...

PRESIDENT OBAMA: ... well, yeah...

COOPER: ... because a lot of people really believe this deeply, that they just don't...

OBAMA: ... no...

COOPER: ... they just don't trust you.

OBAMA: I'm sorry, Cooper, yes. It is fair to call the conspiracy, what are you saying? Are you suggesting that the notion that we are creating a plot to take everybody's guns away so that we can impose martial law...

COOPER: ... not everybody, but there's certainly a lot of...

OBAMA: ... but a conspiracy? Yes, that is a conspiracy! I would hope that would agree with that.

(APPLAUSE)

OBAMA: Is that controversial? Except on some website...

COOPER: There are -- there are certainly a lot of people who just have a fundamental distrust that you do not want to get -- go further and further and further down this road.

OBAMA: Well, look, I mean, I'm only going to be here for another year. I don't know -- when -- when would I have started on this enterprise, right? I come from the state of Illinois, which we've been talking about

Chicago, but downstate Illinois is closer to Kentucky than it is to Chicago. And everybody hunts down there. And a lot of folks own guns. And so this is not, like, alien territory to me. I've got a lot of friends, like Mark, who are hunters. I just came back from Alaska where I ate a moose that had just been shot, and it was pretty good.

So, yes, it is -- it is a false notion that I believe is circulated for either political reasons or commercial reasons in order to prevent a coming-together among people of goodwill to develop commonsense rules that will make us safer while preserving the Second Amendment.

And the notion that we can't agree on some things while not agreeing on others, and the reason for that is because, "Well, the president secretly wants to do X," would mean that we'd be paralyzed about doing everything. I mean, maybe when I propose to make sure that, you know, unsafe drugs are taken off the market that secretly I'm trying to control the entire drug industry or take people's drugs away, but probably not. What's more likely is I just want to make sure that people are not dying by taking bad drugs.

JUDGE RULES AGAINST OBAMA ON 'FAST AND FURIOUS'
President cannot use executive privilege to keep records hidden

(THE HILL) — A federal judge on Tuesday ruled President Obama cannot use executive privilege to keep records on the “Fast and Furious” gun-tracking program from Congress.

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered the administration to release documents that it has been attempting to withhold by asserting executive privilege.

The ruling also requires the administration to release to Congress all “segregable portions” of records they are withholding that are considered “attorney-client privileged material, attorney work product, private information, law enforcement sensitive material, or foreign policy sensitive material.”

Why Obama and other gun control advocates own stock in firearm companies
2/5/16

Barack Obama might seem an unlikely investor in the firearms industry. But the U.S. president, a fierce advocate for gun regulation, has money in a pension fund that holds stock in gun and ammunition companies.

Although Obama’s stake is minuscule, worth no more than $30, it reflects a much larger surge of investment.

The president is among millions of Americans buying into gun companies - often unwittingly - as mutual funds have increased such holdings to record levels, according to a Reuters analysis of institutional investment in firearms companies.

Since Obama was elected in 2009, mutual funds have raised their stakes to about $510 million from $30 million in the nation’s two largest gun manufacturers with publicly traded shares, Smith & Wesson Corp and Sturm, Ruger & Co. That means such stocks are now common in retirement and college savings plans.

The influx has helped to boost both companies' shares by more than 750 percent during the Obama presidency; each now has a market value of about $1 billion.

Beyond mutual funds, such investments also are held in the portfolios of hedge funds and public pension plans, which are harder to track.

The White House declined to comment on Obama’s holdings in the Illinois General Assembly’s pension plan, which he earned while serving in that state’s senate. The president has disclosed between $50,000 and $100,000 in the plan.

Obama: ‘I Certainly Have Not Contributed To’ Dividing The Country
What planet is he living on?




President Obama said today during a White House joint press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that he, Obama, has “certainly... not contributed to” dividing the country, reports the Daily Caller.

Obama said, “I’ve said at the State of the Union that one of my regrets is the degree to which polarization and the nasty tone of our politics has accelerated rather than waned over the course of the last 7 1/2 years.”

Agreed. And you were president for that time frame. Interesting coincidence, no?

Obama went on to explain who is at fault. Take a wild guess:

    I do all kinds of soul searching in terms of, are there things that I can do better to make sure that we are unifying the country. But I also have to say… that objectively it’s fair to say that the Republican political elites and many of the information outlets, social media and news stations, talk radio, television stations have been feeding the Republican base for the last seven years a notion that everything I do is to be opposed, that cooperation or compromise somehow is a betrayal, that maximalist, absolutist positions on issues are politically advantageous, that there is a ‘them’ out there and an ‘us’ and ‘them’ are the folks who are causing whatever the problems you’re experiencing and the tone of that politics, which I certainly have not contributed to.

No, Mr. President, "objectively it's fair to say" that your radical anti-Americanism and your aim to fundamentally transform this country are to blame. It's not the fault of the vast right-wing conspiracy.

He continued:

    You know, I don’t think that I was the one to prompt questions about my birth certificate, for example. I don’t remember saying, "Hey, why don’t you ask me about that?" "Why don’t you question whether I’m American or whether I’m loyal or whether I have America’s best interests at heart." Those aren’t things that were prompted by any actions of mine, and so what you’re seeing within the Republican Party is, to some degree, all of those efforts over a course of time creating an environment where somebody like a Donald Trump can thrive.

Questions about whether Obama has America's best interests at heart weren't prompted by any of his actions? Seriously? Sounds like someone is living in a river in Egypt.

9/11 Victims Families Furious As Obama Tries To Block Passage Of Bill Holding Saudi Arabia Responsible

“It’s stunning to think that Obama and our government would back the Saudis over its own citizens,” said Mindy Kleinberg, whose husband died in the World Trade Center on Sept. 11 and who is part of a group of victims’ family members pushing for the legislation.

Saudi Arabia has told the Obama administration and members of Congress that it will sell off hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets held by the kingdom if Congress passes a bill that would allow the Saudi government to be held responsible in American courts for any role in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” – Barack Hussein Obama

The Obama administration has lobbied Congress to block the bill’s passage, according to administration officials and congressional aides from both parties, and the Saudi threats have been the subject of intense discussions in recent weeks between lawmakers and officials from the State Department and the Pentagon. The officials have warned senators of diplomatic and economic fallout from the legislation.



Adel al-Jubeir, the Saudi foreign minister, delivered the kingdom’s message personally last month during a trip to Washington, telling lawmakers that Saudi Arabia would be forced to sell up to $750 billion in treasury securities and other assets in the United States before they could be in danger of being frozen by American courts.

The administration, which argues that the legislation would put Americans at legal risk overseas, has been lobbying so intently against the bill that some lawmakers and families of Sept. 11 victims are infuriated. In their view, the Obama administration has consistently sided with the kingdom and has thwarted their efforts to learn what they believe to be the truth about the role some Saudi officials played in the terrorist plot.



“It’s stunning to think that our government would back the Saudis over its own citizens,” said Mindy Kleinberg, whose husband died in the World Trade Center on Sept. 11 and who is part of a group of victims’ family members pushing for the legislation.
28 Pages That Will Change the World:

Will Bush and Cheney end up behind bars? Senator is on board with an ongoing effort to release government documents pertaining to the 9/11 attacks that have thus far remained secret on “national security” grounds. The 28 pages of documents are thought to contain information relating to the direct involvement in the attacks of senior figures in the Saudi Arabian government.



President Obama will arrive in Riyadh on Wednesday for meetings with King Salman and other Saudi officials. It is unclear whether the dispute over the Sept. 11 legislation will be on the agenda for the talks.

Saudi officials have long denied that the kingdom had any role in the Sept. 11 plot, and the 9/11 Commission found “no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded the organization.” But critics have noted that the commission’s narrow wording left open the possibility that less senior officials or parts of the Saudi government could have played a role. Suspicions have lingered, partly because of the conclusions of a 2002 congressional inquiry into the attacks that cited some evidence that Saudi officials living in the United States at the time had a hand in the plot.
Those conclusions, contained in 28 pages of the report, still have not been released publicly.

The dispute comes as bipartisan criticism is growing in Congress about Washington’s alliance with Saudi Arabia, for decades a crucial American ally in the Middle East and half of a partnership that once received little scrutiny from lawmakers. Last week, two senators introduced a resolution that would put restrictions on American arms sales to Saudi Arabia, which have expanded during the Obama administration. source

Saudi Arabia Warns of Economic Fallout if Congress Passes 9/11 Bill

 Saudi Arabia has told the Obama administration and members of Congress that it will sell off hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets held by the kingdom if Congress passes a bill that would allow the Saudi government to be held responsible in American courts for any role in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Several outside economists are skeptical that the Saudis will follow through, saying that such a sell-off would be difficult to execute and would end up crippling the kingdom’s economy. But the threat is another sign of the escalating tensions between Saudi Arabia and the United States.

The administration, which argues that the legislation would put Americans at legal risk overseas, has been lobbying so intently against the bill that some lawmakers and families of Sept. 11 victims are infuriated.

A spokesman for the Saudi Embassy did not respond to a message seeking comment.

Saudi officials have long denied that the kingdom had any role in the Sept. 11 plot, and the 9/11 Commission found “no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded the organization.” But critics have noted that the commission’s narrow wording left open the possibility that less senior officials or parts of the Saudi government could have played a role. Suspicions have lingered, partly because of the conclusions of a 2002 congressional inquiry into the attacks that cited some evidence that Saudi officials living in the United States at the time had a hand in the plot.

Those conclusions, contained in 28 pages of the report, still have not been released publicly.

The dispute comes as bipartisan criticism is growing in Congress about Washington’s alliance with Saudi Arabia, for decades a crucial American ally in the Middle East and half of a partnership that once received little scrutiny from lawmakers. Last week, two senators introduced a resolution that would put restrictions on American arms sales to Saudi Arabia, which have expanded during the Obama administration.

Families of the Sept. 11 victims have used the courts to try to hold members of the Saudi royal family, Saudi banks and charities liable because of what the plaintiffs charged was Saudi financial support for terrorism. These efforts have largely been stymied, in part because of a 1976 law that gives foreign nations some immunity from lawsuits in American courts.

The Senate bill is intended to make clear that the immunity given to foreign nations under the law should not apply in cases where nations are found culpable for terrorist attacks that kill Americans on United States soil. If the bill were to pass both houses of Congress and be signed by the president, it could clear a path for the role of the Saudi government to be examined in the Sept. 11 lawsuits.

Obama administration officials counter that weakening the sovereign immunity provisions would put the American government, along with its citizens and corporations, in legal risk abroad because other nations might retaliate with their own legislation. Secretary of State John Kerry told a Senate panel in February that the bill, in its current form, would “expose the United States of America to lawsuits and take away our sovereign immunity and create a terrible precedent.”

The bill’s sponsors have said that the legislation is purposely drawn very narrowly — involving only attacks on American soil — to reduce the prospect that other nations might try to fight back.

In a closed-door briefing on Capitol Hill on March 4, Anne W. Patterson, an assistant secretary of state, and Andrew Exum, a top Pentagon official on Middle East policy, told staff members of the Senate Armed Services Committee that American troops and civilians could be in legal jeopardy if other nations decide to retaliate and strip Americans of immunity abroad. They also discussed the Saudi threats specifically, laying out the impacts if Saudi Arabia made good on its economic threats.

John Kirby, a State Department spokesman, said in a statement that the administration stands by the victims of terrorism, “especially those who suffered and sacrificed so much on 9/11.”

Edwin M. Truman, a fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, said he thought the Saudis were most likely making an “empty threat.” Selling hundreds of billions of dollars in American assets would not only be technically difficult to pull off, he said, but would also very likely cause global market turmoil for which the Saudis would be blamed.

Moreover, he said, it could destabilize the American dollar — the currency to which the Saudi riyal is pegged.

“The only way they could punish us is by punishing themselves,” Mr. Truman said.

The bill is an anomaly in a Congress fractured by bitter partisanship, especially during an election year. It is sponsored by Senator John Cornyn, Republican of Texas, and Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York. It has the support of an unlikely coalition of liberal and conservative senators, including Al Franken, Democrat of Minnesota, and Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas. It passed through the Judiciary Committee in January without dissent.

“As our nation confronts new and expanding terror networks that are targeting our citizens, stopping the funding source for terrorists becomes even more important,” Mr. Cornyn said last month.

The alliance with Saudi Arabia has frayed in recent years as the White House has tried to thaw ties with Iran — Saudi Arabia’s bitter enemy— in the midst of recriminations between American and Saudi officials about the role that both countries should play in the stability of the Middle East.

But the administration has supported Saudi Arabia on other fronts, including providing the country with targeting intelligence and logistical support for its war in Yemen. The Saudi military is flying jets and dropping bombs it bought from the United States — part of the billions of dollars in arms deals that have been negotiated with Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf nations during the Obama administration.

The war has been a humanitarian disaster and fueled a resurgence of Al Qaeda in Yemen, leading to the resolution in Congress to put new restrictions on arms deals to the kingdom. Senator Christopher S. Murphy, Democrat of Connecticut, one of the resolution’s sponsors and a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said that Congress has been “feckless” in conducting oversight of arms sales, especially those destined for Saudi Arabia.

“My first desire is for our relationship with Saudi Arabia to come with a greater degree of conditionality than it currently does,” he said.

Do you know when Hillary Clinton is lying? Her lips are moving

See Stephanopoulos’ Reaction When Clinton Claims She’s Ignorant About 9/11 Legislation

Days before the April 19 New York primary, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton appeared on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos. The former secretary of state fielded questions on a wide range of sensitive topics like the FBI investigation into her private email server, the transcripts of her paid Wall Street speeches and a proposed $15 federal minimum wage.

But one issue in particular seemed to launch the candidate into self-defense mode: A New York bill backed by families of 9/11 victims.

“Your senior senator here in New York, Chuck Schumer, sponsored a bill backed by the 9/11 families that would give them the right to sue state sponsors of terror in federal court,” Stephanopoulos said. “Now, it’s opposed by the Obama administration. They say it’s going to expose the U.S. and its officials to retaliation. So who’s right here, Senator Schumer or President Obama?”

Instead of answering the questions, Clinton claimed she was unfamiliar with the legislation and thus wouldn’t be able to provide clear or accurate details. Instead, she took a middle-ground approach:

“I don’t really know about that, George,” she said. “I’ll have to look into it. Obviously, we’ve got to make anyone who participates in or supports terrorism pay a price, and we also have to be aware of any consequences that might affect Americans, either military or civilian or our nation. So, I’m not able to take a position on something…”

Clinton’s response triggered this expression:

“You don’t know about this issue?” Stephanopoulos asked, evidently surprised by the former New York senator’s response. “It’s been around for several years.”

“Well … I know there’s been an issue about it for quite some time,” Clinton replied. “I don’t know about the specific legislation that you’re referring to. But obviously, I’ll look into it.”

“Ok, so but you’re not prepared to say now if you support it or oppose it?” the ABC host pressed.

“I can’t. I haven’t studied it,” Clinton said. “Unlike some people, I actually do try to learn what’s at the core of any question before I offer an opinion, because you know, it’s not enough to say what’s wrong. I think you have a responsibility to say how you’re going to fix it.”

Clinton served as a New York senator from 2001 to 2009 before leaving her post to work for the Obama Administration as secretary of state until 2013.

Video of a State Dept. Official ‘Lying’ to Reporter James Rosen Mysteriously Deleted — Here’s the Government’s Response

Fox News’ chief Washington correspondent James Rosen reported that a video of a 2013 State Department press briefing regarding the Iranian nuclear agreement had been altered to omit his exchange with the department spokesperson during an appearance on “Special Report” with Bret Baier on Monday.

The video’s alteration comes as the Obama Administration faces allegations that it knowingly deceived the American public about details of the deal with Iran.

“Late today, we discovered that the State Department’s video of its December 2, 2013, press briefing, at which I confronted spokesperson Jen Psaki about the false statement made by her predecessor, Victoria Nuland – the one you saw in my story tonight – has itself, with the use of a white flash, been deleted from both the State Department’s official website and from its YouTube channel,” Rosen said. “In that exchange, Psaki effectively admitted that the administration had lied to me because the diplomacy needed ‘privacy.’”

During the 2013 exchange in question, Rosen asked Psaki about Nuland’s statement that there were “no” secret talks going on with Iran.

“Is it the policy of the State Department, where the preservation or the secrecy of secret negotiations is concerned, to lie in order to achieve that goal?” Rosen asked.

Psaki replied, “James, I think there are times where diplomacy needs privacy in order to progress. This is a good example of that.”

When asked about the deletion by Rosen, the State Department replied that they cannot explain the omission and they are working to restore the footage.

In an interview with the New York Times last week, President Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said that talks with Iran started around 2011. However, the administration has pointed to the election of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, whom they characterized as a moderate, as the reason for the beginning of the talks in 2013.

In an article published on Medium on Monday, Rhodes wrote “we never made any secret of our interest in pursuing a nuclear deal with Iran.”

“The fact that there were discreet channels of communication established with Iran in 2012 is something that we confirmed publicly,” he added.

Rosen alleged “that’s not true,” arguing that the “talks were under way for eight months” at the time of the now-deleted exchange.

Obama Blames 'Right-Wing Radio' for Making 'People Think Big Government is the Problem'
"It's pumped into cars and bars and VFW halls all across America."


President Obama visited Elkhart, Indiana on Wednesday and during a town hall meeting blamed "right-wing radio" for distorting his economic record and for making "people think big government is the problem."

"I hope you don't mind me being blunt about this," the president said, "but I've been listening to this stuff for a while now and I'm concerned when I watch the direction of our politics."

When Obama visited Elkhart seven years ago, the unemployment rate was near 20%. Now, he boasts that the rate has dropped to around 4% in the city and 5% across the state.

The president seems to be on a legacy tour, promoting his tenure in the last remaining months he has at the White House. So, every opportunity must be used to blame the vast right-wing conspiracy, especially Fox News and talk radio:

"I mean, we have been hearing this story for decades: tales about welfare queens, talking about takers, talking about the '47 percent'. It's the story that is broadcast every day on some cable news stations, on right-wing radio. It's pumped into cars and bars and VFW halls all across America, and right here in Elkhart. And if you're hearing that story all the time, you start believing it.

"It's no wonder people think big government is the problem."

We don't need talk radio to tell us big government is the problem, Mr. President. Our Founding Fathers warned of it long ago.

Authorities Find Accused Somali War Criminal Working as Airport Security Guard in Washington, D.C.

A Somali national accused of leading mass executions and torturing people during his country’s bloody civil war in the 1980s has been working as a security guard at the Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C, passing through all TSA and FBI checks for the past six years.

Yusuf Abdi Ali, who is living in Alexandria, Virginia, was discovered by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, according to Fox 5. Ali had been through the full, federally mandated vetting process required to obtain an airport badge, officials said.

Since the revelation, Ali has been placed on administrative leave, and his airport access has been revoked. Airport officials said that they are aware the Somali native was named in a lawsuit filed by a human rights group in 2006 for crimes against humanity. According to CNN, the case has faced several appeals and is headed to the Supreme Court.

“The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority maintains a contract with Master Security to provide unarmed security services,” MWAA spokesman Rob Yingling said. “Master Security’s employees are subject to the full, federally-mandated vetting process in order to be approved for an airport badge, including a criminal history records check by the FBI and a security threat assessment by the TSA.”

Tingling said the authority has “verified that all of these processes were followed and approved” when it comes to Ali.

The MWAA also said it was unaware of the pending litigation involving Ali and is now reviewing the information surrounding that case.

The U.S. government has been aware of Ali for several years, officials told CNN, “based upon allegations that he had been involved in human rights violations.” They declined to provide any further information.

“He oversaw some of the most incredible violence that you can imagine,” Kathy Roberts, a lawyer for the Center of Justice and Accountability, which is leading the civil lawsuit, told CNN. “He tortured people personally; he oversaw torture.”

A government regime led by Mohamed Siad Barre took power in 1969 and ruled dictatorially following a coup in Somalia. Ali served as a commander in the regime and is accused of terrorizing Isaaq, the once-dominant clan in the country’s northern region.

“He tied [my brother] to military vehicle and dragged him behind. He said to us if you’ve got enough power, get him back,” one survivor said on a 1992 CBC documentary. “He shredded him into pieces. That’s how he died.”

However, Ali denies all the accusations of violence, claiming they are both “false” and “baseless.”

“How dare anyone call him a war criminal,” Joseph Peter Drennan, Ali’s lawyer, said. “If he is indeed a war criminal, take him to The Hague. Or if he is a war criminal, take it up with the immigration authorities. Don’t sue him in an American court.”

“My client deserves to live in the U.S. just as any other legal permanent resident,” he added.

Ali first came to the United States on a visa through his wife, who became a citizen. She was found guilty in 2006 of naturalization fraud, after claiming to be a refugee from Somalia’s Isaaq clan.

For starters, where does the Justice Department get this authority? Now the government is just out right concealing information and lying to people. 

Lynch: "Partial Transcript" Of Orlando 911 Calls Will Have References To Islamic Terrorism Removed

In an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, Attorney General Loretta Lynch says that on Monday, the FBI will release edited transcripts of the 911 calls made by the Orlando nightclub shooter to the police during his rampage.

"What we're not going to do is further proclaim this man's pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda," Lynch said. "We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to the Islamic State]."

Lynch: References to Islam From Orlando Terrorist 911 Call Removed "To Avoid Revictimizing"

The Washington Post reported last week that the gunman made multiple phone calls while holding hostages: "The gunman who opened fire inside a nightclub here said he carried out the attack because he wanted 'Americans to stop bombing his country,' according to a witness who survived the rampage."

Salon reported that: “Everybody who was in the bathroom who survived could hear him talking to 911, saying the reason why he’s doing this is because he wanted America to stop bombing his country."

The Washington Post also noted that during his 911 call from the club, the gunman referenced the Boston Marathon bombers and claimed "that he carried out the shooting to prevent bombings, [echoing] a message the younger Boston attacker had scrawled in a note before he was taken into custody by police."

FBI Director James Comey said at a press conference that the shooter’s past comments about Islamist groups were "inflammatory and contradictory."

"We see no clear evidence that he was directed externally," the president added. "It does appear that at the last minute, he announced allegiance to ISIL. But there is no evidence so far that he was in fact directed by ISIL, and at this stage there’s no direct evidence that he was part of a larger plot." ISIL is another name for ISIS, or the Islamic State.

Loretta Lynch says the FBI will release: "A printed transcript [that] will begin to capture the back and forth between him and the negotiators."

"We're trying to get as much information about this investigation out as possible," she said.

Transcript:
LORETTA LYNCH: What we're announcing tomorrow is that the FBI is releasing a partial transcript of the killer's calls with law enforcement, from inside the club. These are the calls with the Orlando PD negotiating team, who he was, where he was... that will be coming out tomorrow and I'll be headed to Orlando on Tuesday.

CHUCK TODD: Including the hostage negotiation part of this?

LYNCH: Yes, it will be primarily a partial transcript of his calls with the hostage negotiators.

CHUCK TODD: You say partial, what's being left out?

LYNCH: What we're not going to do is further proclaim this man's pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda.

CHUCK TODD: We're not going to hear him talk about those things?

LYNCH: We will hear him talk about some of those things, but we are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance and that. It will not be audio, it will be a printed transcript. But it will begin to capture the back and forth between him and the negotiators, we're trying to get as much information about this investigation out as possible. As you know, because the killer is dead, we have a bit more leeway there and we will be producing that information tomorrow.

Time For A Military Coup In America? Obama Administration Inarguably Just Provided Aid And Comfort To Enemies Within The United States Of America

ISIS aka ISIL and IS (Islamic State) is listed at the U.S. State Department is designated as a "Foreign Terrorist Organization," that has threatened the United States on dozens of occassions, has specifically called on supporters to attack within America, urging so-called "lone wolf" attacks to strike. ISIS warned there would be an attack in Florida just three days before 49 people were killed with another 50-plus injured in an attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. ISIS published a list of 8,000 names as a "hit list," with hundreds of those people residing in Florida. After the Orlando massacre ISIS praised the killer and encouraged other "lone wolf" terrorists to attack "movie theaters, hospitals, airports, trains, amusement parks and restaurants."

Links to each assertion is hyperlinked above or readers can do their own search on whatever engine they use to find a number of reports about each assertion...... so, is there any doubt whatsoever that ISIS is an enemy of the United States of America and urging their supporters to attack Americans on U.S. soil?

NO.

SAN BERNARDINO AND ORLANDO TERRORISTS PLEDGED ALLEGIANCE TO ISIS

The Washington Post, NBC News, NY Daily News and NY Post, among a variety of other news organizations, confirm the San Bernardino attacker, who killed over a dozen people in California, pledged allegiance to the Islamic State aka ISIS.

On June 12, 2016, the morning of the Orlando Florida attack, NBC News, CNN, The Hill and others all reported that in a call with authorities the killer, Omar Mateen, "pledged allegiance to ISIS."

NBC News reported "The gunman called 911 before the attack, expressing fealty to ISIS. He twice had been investigated by federally authorities for alleged comments he made about terrorism, but both investigations were closed."

Via The Hill "Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said on Sunday that he was told the Orlando, Fla., nightclub shooting suspect pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)."

CBS News and Fox News reported that Mateen also called a local news station, News 13 in Orlando, who reported the following:

"It was at 2:45 a.m. when I had just received the phone call of someone claiming to be the Orlando shooter," he said in an interview with the station. "I answered the phone as I always do: 'News 13, this is Matt.' And on the other end, I heard, 'Do you know about the shooting?'"

Gentili started to explain that he was aware of the shooting before the caller interrupted him.

"I'm the shooter. It's me. I am the shooter," the person on the line said.

The caller began to tell him that he committed the atrocity at the nightclub and that he was doing it for the Islamic State.

"He did it for ISIS, and he started speaking Arabic," Gentili said. "At the time, I didn't know what he was saying. He was speaking so fast. But it was ... he was speaking fluently. Whatever language he was speaking, he knew it. And he was speaking it very quickly. And that is when I said to him, 'Sir. Please. Speak in English, please.'"

ABC News, CBS News and Fox News all reported on posts Mateen put on Facebook pledging his allegiance to ISIS, stating "I pledge my alliance to (ISIS leader) abu bakr al Baghdadi..may Allah accept me.  The real muslims will never accept the filthy ways of the west" …"You kill innocent women and children by doing us airstrikes..now taste the Islamic state vengeance."

(Please note I linked to only MSM sources so trolls cannot pretend that only "alternative" news reported it.)

Is there any doubt whatsoever that the San Bernardino and Orlando attacks were perpetrated by ISIS supporters that pledged allegiance to the terror group?

NO.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION JUST PROVIDED AID AND COMFORT TO ISIS SUPPORTERS - TREASON

It has clearly been established that ISIS is an enemy of the United States of America. It is also just as clear that the San Bernardino and Orlando attackers swore allegiance to ISIS, committed their heinous crimes in the name of ISIS.

Which brings us to the legal definition of Treason.

18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason - "Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States."

The first words are clear, those "owing allegiance to the United States" includes everyone from the president to members of congress, all taking an oath of office swearing to "defend the Constitution of the United States."

See Senate Oath, House Oath, Presidential Oath.

If any of the above "levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort within the United States or elsewhere," they are guilty of Treason.

We are going to set aside the issues of Fast and Furious, Benghazi and the importation of radical Islamics into the U.S. in the guise of the refugee resettlement program where ISIS has openly admitted they were infiltrating the refugee program, and a variety of other issues, and we are going to focus on just the release by the Obama administration of censored transcripts from the Orlando shooter where the Obama admin deliberately redacted any mention of the enemy of the United States, ISIS.

Those censored transcripts are geared to hide the fact that the terrorists was an ISIS supporter,and the Obama administration also removed reference to "Allah" and replaced it with the word "God," in yet a further attempt to hide from American citizens that the killer was a radical Islamic.



As terrorists are gearing up for a summer of blood, the Obama administration, via the DOJ and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, are deliberately hiding the radical Islamic connection, which endangers Americans and hinders counter-terrorism efforts, following recent news that this is an official Obama administration policy, further evidenced  from reports that the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) submitted its Countering Violent Extremism report to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson, urging officials to "avoid using the words "sharia" and "jihad" (among others) when discussing terrorism, in order to avoid offending Muslims.

By removing any reference from the official transcripts of the Orlando killer to the police, of ISIS and Islam and by removing Mateen's reference to "Allah," and replacing it with the word God, the Obama administration is not only offering "aid and comfort" to enemies "within the United States and elsewhere," but they are deliberately misleading Americans as to the nature of the threat with falsely edited transcripts.

AG Lynch has also recently made it clear that Muslims in America are "Under our protection," providing further evidence that the redaction of Mateen's references to "Allah" and ISIS, is an act by the Obama adminsitration to deliberately hide the truth from Americans to "protect" Muslims in America, which include radical Islamics, which could be considered a "subversive act" to "weaken the power of the United States," providing "aid and comfort" to the enemy, which is radical Islamics supportive of ISIS and residing in America.

That ladies and gentlemen is Treason by its legal definition.

Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information. If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.

This brings me to my last point, the headlined question of whether it is time for the U.S. military to remove Barack Obama and company from office.

IS IT TIME FOR A MILITARY COUP IN THE U.S.?

Commissioned officers take an oath as well, shown below:

"I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God." (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)

By that very oath alone, is it  not a requirement for those that took that oath in the U.S. military, to remove a man that has committed Treason against the United States, by giving comfort and aid to our enemies within the U.S., making Obama a "domestic enemy?"

BREAKING: ISIS Terrorists Used Obama’s Fast and Furious Gun During Paris Attack!

On the evening of 13 November 2015, ISIS linked terrorists slaughtered 130 people in a series of coordinated attacks in Paris.

The Islamists murdered 89 concertgoers at the Bataclan during a concert by the Eagles of Death Metal.

ISIS later released a poster of the Paris killers.

One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks was from Phoenix where Obama allowed criminals and cartel members to buy thousands of guns in his Fast and Furious gun-walking program.

Judicial Watch reported:

One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks came from Phoenix, Arizona where the Obama administration allowed criminals to buy thousands of weapons illegally in a deadly and futile “gun-walking” operation known as “Fast and Furious.”

A Report of Investigation (ROI) filed by a case agent in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tracked the gun used in the Paris attacks to a Phoenix gun owner who sold it illegally, “off book,” Judicial Watch’s law enforcement sources confirm. Federal agents tracing the firearm also found the Phoenix gun owner to be in possession of an unregistered fully automatic weapon, according to law enforcement officials with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.

The investigative follow up of the Paris weapon consisted of tracking a paper trail using a 4473 form, which documents a gun’s ownership history by, among other things, using serial numbers. The Phoenix gun owner that the weapon was traced back to was found to have at least two federal firearms violations—for selling one weapon illegally and possessing an unregistered automatic—but no enforcement or prosecutorial action was taken against the individual. Instead, ATF leaders went out of their way to keep the information under the radar and ensure that the gun owner’s identity was “kept quiet,” according to law enforcement sources involved with the case. “Agents were told, in the process of taking the fully auto, not to anger the seller to prevent him from going public,” a veteran law enforcement official told Judicial Watch.

It’s not clear if the agency, which is responsible for cracking down on the illegal use and trafficking of firearms, did this because the individual was involved in the Fast and Furious gun-running scheme. An ATF spokesman, Corey Ray, at the agency’s Washington D.C. headquarters told Judicial Watch that “no firearms used in the Paris attacks have been traced” by the agency. When asked about the ROI report linking the weapon used in Paris to Phoenix, Ray said “I’m not familiar with the report you’re referencing.” Judicial Watch also tried contacting the Phoenix ATF office, but multiple calls were not returned.

Could Trump have been right? Propaganda film suggests Iran DID videotape cash-drop plane and photograph shipment of cash during January prisoner swap
February documentary that aired on Iranian state-run TV shows nighttime flight, pallet of cash matching prisoner-swap scenario reported this week
Donald Trump claimed three times this week that he had seen similar footage and that Iran had filmed the cash transfer to embarrass America
He walked back that claim Friday morning, saying he had only seen archival footage of a different plane delivering hostages safely to Geneva
He may have been right without knowing it: Propaganda broadcast shows the images and boasts the deal was great for Iran but terrible for the U.S.


Iranian state-run media in Tehran did indeed videotape the arrival of a January 17 flight carrying $400 million in cash from the United States – and the money itself – judging from a documentary that aired the following month in the Islamic republic.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been in a firestorm of controversy since first claiming on Wednesday to have seen 'secret' footage of money being offloaded from an aircraft.

He admitted Friday morning on Twitter what his campaign had said more than a day earlier, that he had seen ordinary archival footage of a different plane, carrying American hostages freed from Iran arriving in Geneva Switzerland after the money changed hands.

But it turns out he may have been right without knowing it.

House Task Force Confirms: ISIS Threat Was Altered in Intelligence Reports For Political Purposes

Last year the Daily Beast published a bombshell report featuring dozens of intelligence community whistleblowers alleging the Obama administration and top tier levels of the military were "cooking the books" on ISIS in order to paint a rosier picture for the American public and to downplay the real threat the terror army posed.





Now, a House panel investigating the situation is confirming intelligence reports containing warnings about ISIS, it's growth, expansion, threat and overall influence, were scrubbed for political purposes.

A House Republican task force has found that officials from the U.S. military’s Central Command altered intelligence reports to portray the U.S. fight against ISIS and al Qaeda in a more positive light than lower-level analysts believed was warranted by the facts on the ground, three officials familiar with the task force’s findings told The Daily Beast.

A roughly 10-page report on the controversy is expected to be released by the end of next week, two officials said. While it contains no definitive evidence that senior Obama administration officials ordered the reports to be doctored, the five-month investigation did corroborate earlier reports that analysts felt the leaders of CENTCOM’s intelligence directorate pressured them to conclude that the threat from ISIS was not as ominous as the analysts believed, the officials said.

“The investigation is ongoing but the report substantiates the claims” that intelligence reports were altered, one official familiar with the report explained to The Daily Beast.
The Obama administration has been putting politics above national security for years. It's no wonder America and the world have become increasingly less safe.
