Everything Obama Said About the Border Was a Lie

Everything Obama Said About the Border Was a Lie

Sen. Jim DeMint, R-SC, NRO

President Obama’s immigration speech in El Paso today is a poor substitute
for the real border security the country still desperately needs. And it was a
transparent attempt to keep using illegal immigration as a campaign issue, as
President Obama made no attempt to solve this problem during the two years his
party held huge majorities in both houses of Congress. His own administration
has not done its job to finish the border fence that is a critical part of
keeping Americans safe and stopping illegal immigration.

Rather than holding immigration summits at the White House with special
interests and making speeches, President Obama should direct the members of his
administration tasked with homeland security and patrolling the border to enact
measures that have already been made law by Congress.

Five
years ago, legislation was passed to build a 700-mile double-layer border fence
along the southwest border
. This is a promise that has not been kept.

Today, according to staff at the Department of Homeland Security, just 5
percent of the double-layer fencing is complete, only 36.3 miles.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO), Congress’s investigative arm,
reported in early 2009 that only 32 miles of double-layer fencing had been
built. That means under President Obama, only 4.3 miles of double layer fencing
has been built. This is woefully inadequate.

While the border-fence construction lags, Mexican cartels continue to smuggle
drugs, weapons, and illegal aliens into our country, attracting violent
crime.

The United
States Attorney’s Annual Statistical Report for Fiscal Year 2009
stated that
“violence along the border of the United States and Mexico has increased
dramatically in recent years.” Citing a National Drug Intelligence Center
report, it continued, “Mexican drug trafficking organizations represent the
greatest organized crime threat to the United States and the influence of
Mexican drug trafficking organizations over domestic drug trafficking is
unrivaled.”

Last month, officials
in Brownsville, Texas, found a homemade, improvised explosive device
on
Highway 77 that resembled the bombs used against U.S. troops in the Middle East
and by Mexican drug cartels.

The Liberals’ Gun Control Crusade Targets…the Amish?

The Liberals’ Gun Control Crusade Targets…the
Amish?

April 4th, 2011

Kevin “Coach” Collins, FloydReports.com

The double-talking liberal Democrats in Illinois have
voted down a Republican measure to demand that those attempting to vote produce
a photo ID. The arguments they made were the same shopworn nonsense they always
use: “Such
a law will discourage voting”
; “It
disadvantage minority groups”
; etc.
In spite of the ever-increasing movement toward photo identification
everywhere we look, these people are able to kill photo ID bills. They have the
votes in the Illinois legislature and fear their fraudulent voters will not
be able to
keep supporting them if the system were to become honest.
Gun Control is the Liberals’ Religion
The same liberal Democrats who fight to keep voters from having to produce
photo ID have now passed a new law that will demand photo ID for those
who want to exercise their Second Amendment right
to buy a gun.
For most of the comrades living in a socialist-leaning state like Illinois,
assaults on freedom like this are part of life. Nevertheless, not all of
Illinois’ citizens can merely shrug off this law….

Are We Facing ‘The West’s Last Chance’?

Are We Facing ‘The West’s Last Chance’?

By Janet
Levy

 

In the first chapter of The West’s Last Chance
(2005), Washington Times Editor Tony Blankley presents a fictional account
of a neck-and-neck political race in 2007 America.  Entitled “The Nightmare
Scenario,” the chapter portrays a presidential candidate, facing polls that
indicate an even race and rationalizing to seize an opportunity and secure his
dreams for high office.  In the heat of a political rally with a Muslim American
audience clamoring for shariah law, he capitulates to their demands.

In 2005, when the book was published, U.S. political pandering to American
Muslims was already an established reality.  Since 9/11 and continuing today,
our government bends over backward to avoid even a hint of negativity toward the
purveyors of Islamic doctrine whose very mission is to destroy us.  Pandering to
Islam has reached epidemic proportions and threatens our very existence as a
free society.
This dangerous trend began immediately after 9/11 when President George W.
Bush reached out to Muslims, repeating the hollow-sounding mantra that Islam is
a religion of peace.  This occurred despite prima facie and doctrinal evidence
to the contrary.  Given that Muslims following the revered Koranic path of jihad
had perpetrated (and continue now) the vast majority of worldwide terrorist
attacks, the president’s message was incongruous with reality.  Of course, the
silence was deafening from the Allah hu-Akbar (“Allah is Great”) corner, which
instead focused on fears of burgeoning Islamophobia rather than shared anguish
over the loss of life and destruction or condemnation of the hijackers’
martyrdom operation.
In 2001, following the deadliest attack on American civilians in history
and with Muslims worldwide engaging in victory celebrations (including even
inside the FBI translators office, per former FBI agent Sibel Edmonds), Bush
visited a local mosque with hijabed female government officials and began the
American “tradition” of Iftar, or, participation in the meal ending Ramadan
fasting.  Further, he retained close, visible ties to Saudi leaders despite
common knowledge of their funding of radical American mosques, their training of
the majority of American imams in extremist ideology and the reality that 17 of
19 9/11 hijackers were Saudi nationals.
Beginning with the Bush administration and zealously expanded under Obama,
descriptive language identifying the enemy by name was expunged from the
official government lexicon.  Bush repeatedly emphasized, “America is not and
never will be at war with Islam.”
With his global war on terror (GWOT) nomenclature, Bush began the practice
of referring to a strategy — terrorism — as the United States’ archenemy as if
it were unrelated to Islam and Muslims.  In 2009, Homeland Security Secretary
Janet Napolitano went beyond this camouflage attempt to infamously coin the term
“man-caused disasters” as a euphemism for “terrorism,” foregoing all descriptors
that referenced Islam.  This further muddled the threat by conflating criminal
acts by the mentally disturbed to acts of terrorism.
Immediately upon taking office, Obama displayed unusual deference to the
Muslim world by giving a speech at Cairo University to which the Muslim
Brotherhood was invited, phoning Fatah leader Abu Abbas and granting an
interview to the Arab network Al-Arabiya. Especially noteworthy, was Obama’s
unprecedented bow to Saudi King Abdullah and his directive to NASA to improve
relations with the Muslim world and boost their self esteem regarding Muslim
scientific achievements.  Obama conducted a policy of “engagement” with the
Iranian regime while Iran pursued nuclear weapons and suppressed true democratic
protests over a rigged election.  While visiting Turkey, Obama praised a
fundamentalist Islamic regime that had endorsed a terrorist operation to supply
weapons to Hamas in Gaza.  Recently, it was announced that the 2 million-member
Service Employees International Union (SEIU), which spent $60 million to elect
Obama and whose then president was the most frequent White House visitor in
2009, is being investigated for ties to Hamas.  Obama reportedly has a close
relationship with SEIU founder Wayne Rathke of ACORN fame and even appointed a
former SEIU attorney, Craig Becker, to the National Labor Relations
Board.
Despite the fact that Islam is in a permanent state of war with all
non-believers as outlined in the Koran and confirmed by 67% of its contents, our
government’s pandering to the purveyors of Islamic doctrine has reached epidemic
proportions.  Contrary to the popular mythology advanced by many politicians,
there is no “hijacking” of a great religion by a small group of radicals taking
place across the globe.  As Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogen said in
2007 while disparaging the Western-manufactured term “moderate Islam,” “These
descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion.
There is no moderate or immoderate Islam.  Islam is Islam and that’s
it.”
Reminiscent of Tony Blankley’s fictional account, flagrant increases have
occurred in the number of questionable Muslims holding positions of power in the
U.S. government as well as the number of alliances between American politicians
and Muslims with ties to terrorist entities and organizations endeavoring to
Islamicize the West.  This is particularly concerning in light of recent
Muslim-Brotherhood’s major participation in inspired uprisings in Egypt, Jordan,
Yemen, Tunisia and Sudan, plus the recent Hezb’allah coup in Lebanon.  Further,
a newly published report by the Center for Security Policy (CSP) in Washington
D.C. (“Shariah:  The Threat to America”) found that “nearly every major Muslim
organization in the United States is actually controlled by the MB or a
derivative organization.”
The CSP report further states that the Muslim Brotherhood is the most
important entity promoting Islamic supremacy, Shariah law and the caliphate.
Its mission in the West is sedition or dismantling the constitutional republic,
“not peaceful assimilation and co-existence with non-Muslim populations,” the
report said.
Yet instances of dangerous alliances abound.  In 2004, then-New Jersey
Senator Jon Corzine and Representative Bill Pascrell, both Democrats, spoke at
an annual meeting of the American Muslim Union (AMU).  Co-sponsors included
unindicted co-conspirators in the Hamas terrorist financing trial, such as the
Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR); the Islamic Center of Passaic
County (ICPC), whose co-founder and former imam, Mohammad El-Mezain, defended
Hamas and admitted raising funds for the terrorist group; and the Dar-ul-Islah
Islamic Center, co-founded by Waheed Khalid, who had defended the activities of
Hamas.  The link between AMU, these organizations and the elected
representatives extends beyond the 2004 meeting.  Several of AMU’s current and
former directors held leadership positions at the ICPC and AMU’s president,
Mohamed Younes, serves on the ICPC Board.  Younes has held fundraisers for
Representative Pascrell and personally contributed to his political campaigns.
At the 2007 annual AMU meeting, guest of honor Senator Robert Menendez
(D-NJ) was introduced by a leader from CAIR’s New Jersey chapter.  Menendez
praised AMU’s work and offered “the power of his office” as well as his “hand in
friendship” to the organization.  Representative Pascrell and Governor Corzine
were also in attendance as guests of honor.  At the same 2007 meeting, Rep.
Pascrell recounted with pride his recent trip to Ramallah to visit Yasser
Arafat, the father of modern terrorism, who endeavored to destroy the state of
Israel.
In 2007, then-Virginia Governor Tim Kaine appointed Esam Omeish, former
Muslim American Society (MAS) president, to the Virginia Commission on
Immigration.  This appointment occurred even though in 2000, Omeish, who
acknowledged Muslim Brotherhood influence in the MAS, had been caught on tape by
terrorism expert Steven Emerson’s Investigative Project for Terrorism,
proclaiming his support for Hamas and Hezbollah and calling for jihad against
Israel.  The investigative project also revealed that Omeish had ties to the Dar
Al-Hijrah Mosque that harbored 9/11 terrorists.  When this information was made
public, Omeish was forced to resign from the post.
In 2010, when the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque held its annual fundraising dinner,
special guests listed on the program included Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA),
Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA), Senator James Webb (D-VA) and Virginia Governor
Tim Kaine.  After receiving a briefing paper about the mosque’s ties to
terrorist groups, including Al Qaeda, and its connection to several terrorist
acts from the Center for Security Policy, all but Congressman Connolly declined
the invitation to attend.  The Dar Al-Hijrah mosque had harbored at least three
of the 9/11 hijackers.  Its former imam, Anwar Al-Awlaki, is credited with being
the mentor for Major Nidel Hasan who murdered 13 Americans at Fort Hood in Texas
in 2009, as well as the spiritual coach for Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the
attempted Christmas Day bomber on Northwest Flight 253.
U.S. Representative Keith Hakim Ellison (D-MN), the first Muslim elected to
Congress, caused quite a stir in 2007 when he departed from congressional custom
and took his oath of office on the Koran instead of the Bible.  The use of the
Koran, a scripture that calls for worldwide Muslim conquest and proclaims the
inferiority of non-Muslims, caused Representative Virgil Goode (R-VA) to issue a
statement that the action represented a threat to “the values and beliefs
traditional to the United States of America….” Ellison  attended the Hajj in
Mecca, which according to his office was funded by the Muslim American Society
of Minnesota.  As part of the $13,350 trip, the Minnesota Congressman  listened
to a Saudi cleric call on participants to renounce capitalism in favor of
shariah law.  According to Islamic terrorism expert Steven Emerson, Ellison, who
regularly attends CAIR functions, has received contributions from donors with
Muslim Brotherhood connections, as well as a North Virginia think tank suspected
of being part of a terrorist financing network.  Recently, Ellison raised
objections when Peter King, the new chairman of the House Committee on Homeland
Security, stated he would hold investigations into the “radicalization” of
American Muslims.
Recently, the nomination by New Jersey’s Republican Governor Chris Christie
of AMU general counsel Sohail Mohammed for a Superior Court judgeship shed light
on the extent of Islamist ties in that state’s government and the special
interest pandering for political support and campaign contributions.
Previously, as the U.S. Attorney for New Jersey, Christie, along with other
prominent New Jersey officials, had thwarted U.S. government attempts to deport
Mohammed Qatanani, the imam at the largest mosque in New Jersey.  This was after
Qatanani had admitted a Hamas member and was charged with raising money for the
terrorist group.  Christie’s nominee, Sohail Mohammed, who has defended
suspected terrorist detainees, had been Qatanani’s attorney.  Christie went so
far as to attend a Ramadan dinner at the mosque where the terrorist financing
took place.  He has also been a vocal supporter of what has been referred to as
the “victory mosque” at Ground Zero.
Many other examples exist that illustrate the connection between Islam and
U.S. politicians, all of grave concern.  For example, Rep. Chris Van Hollen
(D-MD) — a past assistant to former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi,
Congressman John Conyers (D-MI) and former State Senator Larry Shaw (D-NC) –
pledged support for CAIR.  According to David Gaubatz and Paul Sperrry, authors
of “Muslim Mafia,” internal notes from CAIR meetings referred to Van Hollen’s
promise to support CAIR’s agenda, including promoting Islamic curricula in
public schools.  Further, Gaubatz and Sperry contend that Congressman John
Conyers, whose district contains active Hamas, Hezb’allah and Muslim Brotherhood
operatives, worked with CAIR to stop FBI counterterrorism measures and pushed
the “End Racial Profiling Act” to ban all profiling of Muslims.  In 2009, CAIR
elected then-North Carolina State Senator Shaw as their Board Chairman.  A year
earlier, Shaw had accompanied CAIR officials on a trip to Saudi Arabia to meet
with King Abdullah.  At the meeting, the King praised Islam as the world’s
greatest religion and decried those with concerns about Islamic violence.
These examples of Islamist or Muslim Brotherhood influence and infiltration
in Washington are by no means exhaustive.  Unfortunately, they represent the tip
of the iceberg and are far from an innocuous-appearing brush of
multi-culturalism.  It is just a small leap from the current situation to the
scenario described by Tony Blankley in “The West’s Last Chance” wherein
political and financial support is traded for concessions to replace our
constitutional republic by a caliphate under shariah law.  As more and more
politicians and government officials are seduced by the influence peddling of
Muslims seeking to Islamicize the United States, shariah law could very well be
used as leverage for attaining political office and the caliphate could become a
tragic reality in America.

E-Verify Efforts In States Are Even More Critical As Pew Study Reveals 8 Million Illegal Aliens Still Hold U.S. Jobs

E-Verify Efforts In States Are Even More Critical As Pew
Study Reveals 8 Million Illegal Aliens Still Hold U.S. Jobs
Chris ChmielenskiAll federal and state enforcement efforts against illegal
immigration the last year failed to reduce the number of illegal aliens holding
U.S. jobs and keeping unemployed Americans from having them, according to a Pew Hispanic Center study released this week.
In the few states that have seriously implemented their own mandatory E-Verify laws, the number of illegal aliens has
declined. But the annual count of illegal aliens by Pew indicated that the
illegal foreign workers are mainly moving to lax-enforcement states and taking
jobs there. Thus, the number of jobs held nationally by illegal aliens remained
steady at 8 million.
The answer, of course, is to make E-Verify mandatory nationally (through
Congress) or greatly increase the number of states doing so. But time is running
out in several states as their short legislature session head to a close for the
year.
Yesterday, a Kentucky House committee approved a mandatory E-Verify bill,
but there’s still a lot of work to be done in the Bluegrass State and many other states across the country.
Continue to check your Action Board for new and updated state level faxes and phone
notes and make sure you’ve faxed your Three Members of Congress, urging them to
pass a mandatory E-Verify bill this year.
Roy’s newest blog highlights his Politico op-ed that ran on
Thursday, which demonstrates how mandatory E-Verify for all employers would fit
in perfectly with the Obama Administration’s current “soft-enforcement” approach
and free up millions of jobs for unemployed Americans.
GUMBALLS APPROACHES 1 MILLION: In less than 4 months, Roy’s
updated Immigration Gumballs video is just 30,000 views short of reaching the 1
Million views benchmark on YouTube.
This important video tests the humanitarian reasons for current U.S.
immigration policy, and should be viewed by all Americans, especially those
concerned with helping the world’s impoverished nations.

Hawaii official now swears: No Obama birth certificate

Hawaii official now swears: No Obama birth certificate

Signs affidavit declaring long-form, hospital-generated document
absent


Posted: January 24, 2011

Corsi

© 2011 WorldNetDaily

Former Hawaii elections clerk Tim Adams has now signed an affidavit swearing
he was told by his supervisors in Hawaii that no long-form, hospital-generated
birth certificate existed for Barack Obama Jr. in Hawaii and that neither Queens
Medical Center nor Kapi’olani Medical Center in Honolulu had any record of Obama
having been born in their medical facilities.

Notary seal
on Timothy Adams’ affidavit
Adams was employed at the City and County of Honolulu
Elections Division
from May 2008 through September 2008.
His position was senior elections clerk, overseeing a group of 50 to 60
employees responsible for verifying the identity of voters at the Absentee
Ballot Office. It was in this capacity that Adams became aware of the search for
Obama’s birth-certificate records.
“During the course of my employment,” Adams swears in the affidavit (viewable
in full as part 1 and part 2), “I became aware
that many requests were being made to the City and County of Honolulu Elections
Division, the Hawaii Office of Elections, and the Hawaii Department of Health
from around the country to obtain a copy of then-Senator Barack Obama’s
long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate.”
As he inquired about the birth certificate, he says, his supervisors told him
that the records were not on file at the Hawaii Department of Health.
“Senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division told
me on multiple occasions that no Hawaii long-form, hospital-generated birth
certificate existed for Senator Obama in the Hawaii Department of Health,”
Adams’ affidavit reads, “and there was no record that any such document had ever
been on file in the Hawaii Department of Health or any other branch or
department of the Hawaii government.”

Tim Adams,
former senior elections clerk for Honolulu
In a recorded telephone interview, Adams told WND that it was common
knowledge among election officials where he worked that no long-form,
hospital-generated birth certificate could be found at the Hawaii Department of
Health.
“My supervisor came and told me, ‘Of course, there’s no birth certificate.
What? You stupid,’” Adams said. “She usually spoke well, but in saying this she
reverted to a Hawaiian dialect. I really didn’t know how to respond to that. She
said it and just walked off. She was quite a powerful lady.”
Moreover, Adams was told that neither Queens Memorial Hospital nor Kapi’olani
Medical Center had any records of Obama’s birth at their medical facilities:
“Senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division further
told me on multiple occasions that Hawaii State government officials had made
inquires about Sen. Obama’s birth records to officials at Queens Medical Center
and Kapi’olani Medical Center in Honolulu and that neither hospital had any
record of Senator Obama having been born there, even though Governor Abercrombie
is now asserting and various Hawaii government officials continue to assert
Barack Obama Jr. was born at Kapi’olani Medical Center on Aug. 4, 1961.”
“We called the two hospitals in Honolulu: Queens and Kapi’olani,” Adams
stressed. “Neither of them have any records that Barack Obama was born there.”
(Story continues below)
In 2009, WND
documented
that Obama and his supporters had first claimed he was born at
Queens Medical Center in Honolulu, before the story changed to Kapi’olani
Medical Center in Honolulu.
After WND’s
report on the two conflicting hospitals
, online news sites including the
United Press International and Snopes.com scrubbed their websites to eliminate
any reference to Queens Medical Center, substituting instead that Obama was born
at Kapi’olani Medical Center without explaining the discrepancy or the
correction.

Hawaii Gov.
Neil Abercrombie
In 2010, then-candidate for governor Neil Abercrombie was
involved in an Obama birth controversy
when he read a letter at a Kapi’olani
Medical Center centennial dinner in Honolulu that supposedly was authored by
President Obama, claiming Kapi’olani as his birth hospital.
As
WND reported
, the letter read by Abercrombie and initially displayed on the
Kapi’olani website turned out to be a computer-created likeness of a letter
using HTML code, the building blocks of Internet websites, not an actual paper
letter.
The White House has still not confirmed it wrote or sent the letter.
Moreover, Adams claims, the Hawaii government was engaged in a cover-up
designed to tell the American public through the Obama-supporting mainstream
media that Obama was born in Hawaii, even though no long-form,
hospital-generated birth certificate for Obama could be found on record in the
Hawaii Department of Health.
In the affidavit Adams swears, “During the course of my employment, I came to
understand that for political reasons, various officials in the government of
Hawaii, including then-Governor Linda Lingle and various officials of the Hawaii
Department of Health, including Dr. Chiyome Fukino, the director of the Hawaii
Department of Health, were making representations that Senator Obama was born in
Hawaii, even though no government official in Hawaii could find a long-form
birth certificate for Senator Obama that had been issued by a Hawaii hospital at
the time of his birth.”
Adams further swears his supervisors told him to quit asking about Obama’s
birth records.
“During the course of my employment,” Adams states in the affidavit, “I was
told by senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division to
stop inquiring about Senator Obama’s Hawaii birth records, even though it was
common knowledge among my fellow employees that no Hawaii long-form,
hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Senator Obama.”
“I can go get my long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate,” Adams told
WND. “And so I don’t understand, this whole controversy should have been settled
three or four years ago in about five minutes.”
Nor does Adams feel the short-form Certification of Live Birth is
authoritative documentation proving that Obama was born in Hawaii.
“My basic assumption is that he wasn’t born there,” Adams said.
“Certifications of Live Birth were given to people who were born at home, or to
people who were born overseas and whose parents brought them back to the
islands. If his parents were U.S. citizens, or if one parent was a U.S. citizen,
as was the case with Obama, the family would apply for a Hawaiian birth
certificate when the parents came back from overseas. That’s normally how you
would have gotten on [a Certification of Live Birth] in the 1960s.”
WND
has reported
that in 1961, Obama’s grandparents, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham,
could have made an in-person request at the Hawaii Department of Health for a
registration of a Hawaii birth, even if the infant Barack Obama Jr. had been
foreign-born.
In the past few days, Abercrombie has represented that there is a
registration of Obama’s birth in the state archives.
But the state registration of birth in 1961 theoretically could prove only
that the grandparents had registered Obama’s birth, even if Obama was not born
in Hawaii.
Similarly, the newspaper announcements of baby Obama’s birth do not prove he
was born in Hawaii, since the newspaper announcements could have been triggered
by the grandparents appearing in-person to register baby Obama as a Hawaiian
birth, even if the baby was born elsewhere.
WND
has documented
that the address reported in the birth announcements
published in the Hawaii newspapers at the time, 6085 Kalanianaole Highway, was
the address where the grandparents lived.
WND
has also reported
that Barack Obama Sr. maintained his own separate
apartment in Honolulu at an 11th Avenue address, even after he was supposedly
married to Ann Dunham, Barack Obama’s mother, and that Ann Dunham left
Hawaii within three weeks of the baby’s birth
to attend the University of
Washington in Seattle.
Dunham did not return to Hawaii until after Barack Obama Sr. left Hawaii in
June 1962 to attend graduate school at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass.
It’s possible the yet-undisclosed birth record in the state archives that
Abercrombie has discovered may have come from the grandparents registering baby
Obama’s birth, an event that would have triggered both the newspaper birth
announcements and availability of a Certification of Live Birth, even if no
long-form record exists.
WND
has confirmed
with Glen Takahashi, elections administrator for the city and
county of Honolulu, that Adams was indeed working in their elections offices
during the last presidential election.
“We hire temporary workers, because we’re seasonal,” Takahashi told WND.
Adams told WND he supported Hillary Clinton during the 2008 presidential
election campaign.
He described himself as a libertarian who wants less government spending,
fewer laws that restrict personal freedoms, more adherences to the Constitution
and an end to foreign wars.
“I’m interested in individual liberty and upholding the Constitution,” he
said. “I want to get American troops out from foreign countries, and I want to
see the federal budget balanced.”
He said he might be inclined to support former-Arkansas Governor Mike
Huckabee or former-Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney in 2012 to run against
President Obama, but he has not yet made up his mind.
“It depends on how fiscally conservative Huckabee and Romney turn out to be
on economics,” he said. “But from what I know right now, they would probably be
better than Obama.”

As Obama Shuts Down Border Fence, Homeland Security Chair Asks for Border Security Plan

As Obama Shuts Down Border Fence, Homeland Security Chair Asks for
Border Security Plan

January 17th, 2011

Jim Kouri, Canada Free Press

New York’s Congressman Peter King, the new chairman of the House Homeland
Security Committee demanded that Obama White House present Congress with a
detailed plan to properly secure the U.S.-Mexico border after Homeland Security
Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the scrapping border fence project.
Following the Obama administration’s announcement to discontinue work on a
“virtual border,”  Rep. King said in a press statement that the Department of
Homeland Security should “speed up its plan to establish a protected
border.”
The original Southwest Border Initiative program, started during President
George W. Bush’s administration, has only established 53 miles worth of fencing
along the border, and has been plagued by construction delays and equipment
failure. Earlier last year, Secretary Napolitano ordered a complete assessment
of the project.
As reported in the past by NewswithViews.com, the original border security
plan called for a fence and barriers to be used on parts of the U.S.‘s southern
border, but with the Democrats controlling both houses of Congress and the Bush
Administration being weak on border security, the plan switched from a real
fence or wall to a virtual fence using high-tech equipment.
“The Obama Administration must promptly present the people of this country
with a comprehensive plan to secure our borders, incorporating the necessary
staffing, fencing, and technology,” said King in a statement. “I expect the
Administration, in its upcoming 2012 budget proposal, to put forward such a
plan, including timelines and metrics.”
However, the ranking Democrat on the committee, Congressman Bennie G.
Thompson (D-MO), applauded the program’s ending, saying that it has been “a
grave and expensive disappointment since its inception.”

Will AZ Shooter Kill the First Amendment?

Will AZ Shooter Kill the First Amendment?

January 11th, 2011

Joe Guzzardi, FloydReports.com

Immediately after crazed gunman Jared Lee Loughner gravely wounded Arizona U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, killed U.S. Judge John M. Roll, and six other people while wounding 12 innocent bystanders, the immigration rhetoric subtly ratcheted up.

Denouncing Gifford’s shooting, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik and others made it clear that what they referred to as “inflammatory speech” had made the political atmosphere in Arizona so toxic that acts of violence were inevitable.

Referring to talk radio hosts, Dupnik charged them with “inflaming the American public by those who get paid to do that. It might be free speech but it does not come without consequences.”

Ironically, Dupnik is the most skilled flamethrower of all.

Last year, at the height of the S.B. 1070 controversy, Dupnik called it “racist” and “disgusting” while claiming that Arizona is “the mecca of prejudice and bigotry.” Furthermore, Dupnik went on record that he would not enforce the measure if it became law, a blatant violation of his oath of office.

Dupnik never directly claimed that S.B. 1070 and Giffords’ support of it were linked to the shootings. But a close read between the lines strongly suggests that Dupnik blames Loughner’s multiple murders on “the haters,” a label that many automatically apply to Americans who favor enforcing federal immigration law.

Even though only a few hours had passed after the massacre before Dupnik pointed his finger and no evidence has yet surfaced that Loughner is anything other than deranged, more “hate” charges flew.

Obama Destined to Be a Footnote in Presidential History

Obama Destined to Be a Footnote in Presidential History

By Rusty Weiss

Barack Obama has set a course that will leave his legacy as no more than a footnote in American presidential history.  For all of the bluster and glory, for all of the pomp and circumstance, and yes, for all of the anticipated hope and the promised change, the whirlwind of hype and expectation surrounding the president a mere two years earlier has virtually dissolved.

He was the man destined to save this country from his predecessor’s failures.  He was the man who would end the war in Iraq, finish the war in Afghanistan, and shut down the prison at Guantánamo Bay.  He was the man charged with rescuing the faltering American economy.  He was the man who would usher in a post-racial era in an allegedly inherently racist American society.  And he was the man who had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize based not on tangible accomplishment, but simply upon these very expectations.
On all of these accounts, President Obama has been a striking failure.
He has not saved this country from the Bush-era failures; rather, he has done the impossible in making Americans pine for the days that Bush was in office, with Obama’s job approval rating recently falling below that of the former president.
Obama did not end the war in Iraq; he merely claimed credit for a deal negotiated under the Bush administration.  The Status of Forces Agreement, signed by U.S. and Iraqi officials on November 16, 2008, already laid the groundwork for an end to combat missions in Iraq.
He has not brought an end to the war in Afghanistan, instead emulating a military strategy that was a basis for success in Iraq, the surge.  What was once heavily criticized by President Obama as a failed strategy has since been hailed as a path to victory in a war that recently sparked Bush-like protests from the antiwar crowd.
Obama has failed to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay, an alleged symbol of American tyranny and torture, and a top priority of Obama during his campaign.  Shortly after his inauguration, executive orders were issued for the closure of the prison within a year.  The thinking was that such a facility was not “consistent with our values and our ideals.”  Gitmo remains open nearly two years later, an apparent admission that the president is not consistent with his own values and ideals.
He has failed in every manner to resuscitate the stumbling economy.  The unemployment rate has continued its upward trend under Obama, going from 7.7% in January of 2009 to the current rate of 9.8%.  Meanwhile, attempts to convince the American people of the success of the stimulus bill were manufactured in deceitful ways despite clear signs of turbulence in the economy.  Personal incomes continue to trend downward, as does private-sector job creation, and the national deficit is projected to balloon to a staggering $1.5 trillion in 2011.
Obama’s election has been anything but post-racial, with heightened racial rhetoric and actions coming from the administration itself.  Setbacks for the post-racial presidency include the firing and subsequent apology to a black official, Shirley Sherrod, at the Agriculture Department; the president himself, without knowing the facts of the case, labeling police as having “acted stupidly” following the arrest of a black Harvard professor; and the Justice Department’s dismissal of voter intimidation charges against members of the New Black Panther Party during the 2008 elections.
Worse, Obama has been governing by putting policy over process, inviting unprecedented backroom deals for health care reform…and now, apparently, tax compromise solutions.
With both sides of the aisle enraged by the process, the recent tax compromise is simply the nail in the coffin.  Obama himself once declared that “[a] good compromise, a good piece of legislation, is like a good sentence or a good piece of music.  Everybody can recognize it.”  Complaints from both sides of the aisle indeed indicate that everyone recognizes this — as a bad compromise. 
And unlike former President Bill Clinton’s shift to the center during his tenure, Obama’s backroom successes and polarizing failures will only result in a perpetual downturn in his approval rating.  His recent ceding of the podium to Clinton seems to indicate an acceptance of this fate.
The president has gone from being “a big f’n deal” to eliciting utter contempt and disrespect for the highest office in the land.  His liberal colleagues angrily mutter, “F the president.”
Like a good compromise, a good president, too, is something that everybody can recognize.  Years from now, recognition of Obama as a transcendent president will long be forgotten, and the era of the man who was to save America will be nothing more than a footnote in history.

Former member of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard says Iran uses mosques in U.S. to plot jihad terror

NOTE: Because Islam, with its shariah law,  is not just a religion but also an
ideology (both totalitarian and imperialist), a mosque is not just a house of
prayer. A mosque is also a center for the propagation of that ideology, an
outpost for the spread of that ideology.]

Former member of Iran’s Revolutionary
Guard says Iran uses mosques in U.S. to plot jihad terror

 

There is no surprise in this, except for those Westerners who buy the
politically correct line that mosques are benign houses of worship that are
never used for any nefarious purposes. In reality, mosques have been used to preach
hatred
; to spread exhortations to terrorist activity; to house a bomb
factory
; to store weapons; to disseminate
messages from bin Laden
; to demand (in the United States) that
non-Muslims conform to Islamic dietary restrictions
; to fire on
American troops
; to fire upon Indian troops; or to train
jihadists
.
“Iran Using Western Mosques to Plot Terrorism?,” from CBN, December 16:

[...] Reza Khalili: Mosques are supposed to be a place for prayer. A
place for submission to God. But they are used as a
recruitment center, for backdoor meetings, transfer of arms and cash and putting
together terrorist activities
and I was involved in some of their
meetings.
Erick Stakelbeck: You made a key point, that Iran used mosques and Islamic
cultural centers in the West to further its agenda…could you get a little bit
more specific about that? How does Iran uses mosques here in the U.S. and in
Europe to plot terrorism?
Khalili: I can tell you from experience: I was part of the operation, I was
involved in the Islamic community, and I can tell you clearly that out of
mosques, there was a big effort within the Afghan communities by the Iranian
Revolutionary Guards members–and with Pakistanis, Turks and others. And they
would recruit from them, they would transfer cash and arms. And mosques
provided a safe haven
, and actually, in my view, were one of the centers
of the operation. So if an intelligence agency such as the CIA infiltrates a
mosque and understands that there is a specific Guards member who runs it, then
actually they could be very successful in drawing a chart of all the terrorist
activities in that specific region. That’s how central the mosque operation
was.
Stakelbeck.: And that’s in Europe–you were involved in some of these
operations in Europe. How about the U.S.?
Khalili: It’s absolutely the same. They recruit, they train, they sell the
ideology of martyrdom, and many, many are guided and connected to terrorist
groups. And you’ve seen this: many U.S. born citizens, Muslims, unfortunately,
have been sold this idea and are sent to Al Qaeda camps or others. But the Iranians are very active in this country through the mosques and
Islamic cultural centers
to make those connections and run those
operations.

Report: Illegal Aliens Pushing Us to Economic Crisis

Report: Illegal Aliens Pushing Us to Economic Crisis

December 6th, 2010

Kevin “Coach” Collins, CoachIsRight.com

A new Census Bureau report outlining the damage illegal aliens are doing to our economy titled   “Immigration and Economic Stagnation: An Examination of Trends 2000 to   2010,” paints a compelling picture. It suggests that we can not let the   recent exodus of illegal aliens fool us. The illegal alien problem is   not getting better merely because some of them have gone home. They   still present a serious threat to the employment stability of the   nation.

During the 1990s the number of new jobs we  created  reached 21 million. Since we were absorbing “only” 12.1 million   illegals the problem appeared to be more regional (California and the   Southwest) than we now recognize it to be.

While the Obama  recession and raising public awareness of the  problem have reduced the  number of illegals in our country by about one  million in recent  months, the past ten years have seen a net increase  of 12.1 million of  these unwanted intruders. In the same period our  economy gained just  one million jobs which explains the financial bind  we are in today.

Some of the findings of the report include….
