You keep worrying with Reagan(he's dead by the way) and I'll keep plugging away at Obama, OK?
We can't change the past, but we still have the opportunity to change our future given that we already know we can't trust Obama and his minions to tell the truth. Obama is now. All former Presidents are just that... former. Throwing Obama out of office CAN have a great affect on our future. We can't through Bush or Reagan out because they are no longer in office! Can you understand?
Obama’s Back Dated & Forged Selective Service Form Hits Washington Times in Full Page Ad Read
You are saying two wrongs make a right. Two wrongs make two wrongs!
Is pointing out the faults of former administrations somehow suppose to excuse the present administration from making similar mistakes?
“We will continue to investigate, analyze and pursue additional lines of inquiry concerning Islamist influence operations targeting the law enforcement and intelligence agencies, the Defense Department and the media. Our report is a steppingstone for further inquiries by Congress, government watchdogs, and the media.”
The convergence of events should cause alarm to Americans, Judicial Watch said.
The report said the Obama administration’s effort to combat anything deemed insensitive to Muslims is rooted in fear.
“American leaders engage in self-censorship out of fear – pretending it is ‘tolerance’ and ‘respect.’ They ironically proclaim that ‘intolerance’ is intolerable and must be eliminated.”
As WND reported, an FBI field office defied clear and direct orders from Washington headquarters to “cease contact” with a terrorist front group. At the same time, the office allowed a Muslim agent investigated for compromising a major terrorism case to remain on the squad.
After the FBI banned the Council on American-Islamic Relations from the bureau’s counter-terror outreach programs in response to evidence the group fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood and its Palestinian terrorist branch Hamas, the FBI’s Los Angeles field office liaisoned with CAIR in violation of official policy, according to a report by the Justice Department’s inspector general.
Several directives sent from FBI headquarters required all of the bureau’s field offices to “cease contact with CAIR as an organization.” But the L.A. office refused to comply with the command and even sent out an internal email advising personnel to ignore it.
At the time, Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., called the behavior “insubordinate.”
The Obama administration previously has been described by Judicial Watch Founder Larry Klayman, who now heads Freedom Watch USA, that Obama has been “kowtowing” to “nefarious Muslims.”
His reference was to the image of Obama greeting the Saudi king with a bow.
Mohamed Elibiary, a Texas-based Muslim leader who was named to Obama’s Homeland Security Advisory Council in 2010.
Mohamed Magid, president of ISNA, an unindicted terrorist conspirator organization. He was appointed by Obama to the Department of Homeland Security’s Countering Violent Extremism Working Group.
The report said it’s “fair to say that not a single U.S. government employee goes to work each morning with the mission of identifying and defeating the Islamists’ active measures campaigns.”
“Large bureaucratic institutions are reluctant to ‘disturb’ operations with examinations for deception and manipulation. Those same organizations are loath to raise those subjects in congressional appropriations requests and hearings fearing any political criticism. Until there is someone with the job of defeating the Islamist active measures campaign targeting our nation – and resourced to roll back the Islamists and win – the United States and her citizens are in grave peril,” the report said.
Among the examples, the report describes the case of Anwar al-Awlaqi, who was killed by a drone strike in 2011.
He had been the subject of Judicial Watch litigation resulting in the release of more than 1,800 pages of records. The documentation uncovered a highly questionable relationship between the terrorist leader and the U.S. government, leading Judicial Watch to conclude “it appears he was, at least, a U.S. government informant.”
The FBI at 10:40 a.m. on Feb. 3, 2002, released a bulletin declaring al-Awlaqi to be a terrorist, while on Feb. 4 he had lunch in the dining room of the secretary of defense and made a presentation to the Pentagon.
“The American people deserve complete, accurate, factual information concerning the threats of subversion and terror posed to our country,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
The Department of Justice Civil Rights Division immediately met with Islamic groups to discuss criminalizing criticism of Islam as “discrimination,” and the Joint Chiefs of Staff issued new directives on the topic.
The White House then submitted to a demand for a task force that includes members of “extremist Muslim groups” to oversee the FBI.
At the beginning of 2012, the report noted, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point canceled an address by a highly decorated founding member of Delta Force and former deputy under secretary of defense for intelligence, Jerry Boykin, after complaints from the “Hamas front group CAIR.”
Over the rest of that year, Islamic groups met with the FBI to ensure compliance of their demands to purge training materials. Also, a top DOJ Civil Rights official refused to vow to Congress not to push Saudi-style blasphemy laws and the Obama administration falsely blamed attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and the special mission compound in Benghazi on a YouTube movie trailer.
“The Obama administration has been penetrated by Islamist influence operators, seeking to advance an ideological agenda completely at odds with our constitutional system. The penetration is, in many cases, by the Obama administration’s invitation,” the report said.
Among the “more public and controversial figures” identified in the report are:
Rashad Hussain, U.S. special envoy to the OIC, who “has a history of participating in events connected with the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Huma Abedin, a long-time personal aide to Hillary Clinton. Abedin’s late father, mother and brother “are all connected to Muslim Brotherhood organizations or operatives.”
Daliah Mogahed, an adviser to the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Mogahed is described as “an unapologetic defender of unindicted terrorist conspirator organizations such as CAIR and ISNA.”
The operators are exercising influence at the Departments of Justice and State, in the Joint Chiefs of Staff and at the White House.
The report recounts FBI Director Robert Mueller assuring U.S. Muslim leaders that the agency had ordered the removal of training materials that “offended” Muslims. The complaints, however, were brought by Muslim Brotherhood groups such as the Islamic Society of North American, which was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorist-financing lawsuit along with the Council on American Islamic Relations and the North American Islamic Trust.
Mueller, himself, described the Muslim Brotherhood in 2011 as a group that supports terrorism.
Complaints by the U.S. Muslim leaders about FBI training material included:
“Article is highly inflammatory and inaccurately argues the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization.”
“Page 13 inaccurately states that AQ [al-Qaida] is responsible for the bombing of the Khobar Towers and that AQ is ‘clearly linked’ to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.”
“The Quran is not the teachings of the prophet, but the revealed word of God.”
“Remove sweeping generality of ‘Those who fit the terrorist profile best (for the present at least) are young male immigrants of Middle Eastern appearance.’”
The report also details how such “influence operations” developed. In July 2011, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blasted “Islamophobia,” and within a couple of months 57 Muslim groups demanded the White House “purge” materials and use “re-education” on all FBI agents exposed to “Islamophobic” training.
Critics of President George W. Bush’s declaration days after Sept. 11 that Islam is a “religion of peace” say it illustrated how disconnected the government was from the source of the attacks.
Under the administration of President Obama, however, kowtowing to Islam has been taken to a whole new level, jeopardizing the country’s security by rewriting history and allowing activists to dictate what law enforcement officers are taught, charges a major new report from government watchdog Judicial Watch.
Chris Farrell, author of the report, told WND that Muslim jihadists today are using many of the same techniques that were developed by Soviet agents to undermine and attack America.
During the Cold War, however, America resisted.
“The operating principle is deception,” he said. “They are interested in winning [on the battlefield], but they are just as happy to subvert our institutions, our laws, and be agents of influence,” he said.
The 26-page report, “Special Report: U.S. Government Purges of Law Enforcement Training Material Deemed ‘Offensive’ to Muslims: Documentation and Analysis of Islamist Active Measures and Influence Operations Targeting Anti-Terrorism Training,” identifies Islamic propaganda organizations and names five top “Islamist influence operations” connected to Obama.
With dozens of footnotes, it centers on the purge by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of anti-terrorism training material that Muslims claim is “offensive.”
The details were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by Judicial Watch of the “broader Islamist influence operation” in Washington that aims to “influence the opinions and actions of persons, institutions, governments and the public at-large.”
Nunes said the timeline begs the question: “What if the attack had went on for another 24 hours?”
“Would they have eventually sent help then? I mean, there is no accountability in this process that I’ve seen so far. And nobody knows what the president knew and when he knew it,” he said.
The recent testimony, though, hasn’t shed any additional light about what President Obama was doing the night of the attack, as the people testifying Tuesday “are the guys that are on the ground that saved everybody’s life.”
“And they were radioing everything upstairs, they assumed that people knew, but they didn’t know — they were on the ground trying to save people’s lives,” Nunes said.
New Benghazi Testimony Confirms White House Had Time to Respond
LOTUS gave orders for military forces to stand down on advice from co-president Valerie Jarret....then rretired to presidential bedroom to prepare for next day's Las Vegas c mpaign fund raiser....
Members of the House Intelligence Committee learned in a closed-door briefing yesterday that more contractors are corroborating the report that the Obama administration had plenty of time to respond to the attack on the Benghazi diplomatic facility.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) called the new information “outstanding testimony.”
“And essentially what they were able to prove today, they basically backed up the other contractors who were on the ground in the two previous hearings. So this is an ongoing investigation,” Nunes said Tuesday evening. “And I think they gave us a lot of good leads today and I feel very comfortable moving forward with where we are at today.”
The congressman confirmed the White House claim that the attack was sparked by protest over a YouTube video “was a completely lie, and we always knew that.”
“But what I think, some important testimony came out today. So these gentlemen found out about this right around dusk. And they knew the ambassador was missing, and they were in Tripoli. So, and then you have this whole time, you’re talking about roughly 9 to 10:00 at night, until 5:00 in the morning,” he said. “And at that point, you know, essentially the attack was still ongoing.”
“Because they arrived at the time the mortars hit and killed two additional Americans that were not killed at the embassy compound earlier. So this is — there is just nothing there the administration is standing on anymore, as to what were they doing? How come nobody came to help? I think that was clear, nobody knew even at 5:30 that the attack was going to be over.”
SC Bill Would Nullify Obamacare, Could Be Model for Others
A bill set for fast-track passage in the South Carolina Senate would effectively nullify Obamacare in that state – and could become a model for other states fed up with the president’s signature healthcare law.
NY Post's Goodwin: Obama 'Most Radical President in Modern Times'
The Democratic Party has changed so dramatically that it contains no more centrists, people who can agree on moderate views, says Michael Goodwin, a New York Post columnist.
We can't all work for the government! For job figures to mean anything significant, i.e., when jobs are created which produce goods, not services, then it can be said the economy is improving.
Baby it’s cold outside: Seth Borenstein makes sure we don't think the coldest temperature ever recorded has anything to do with global warming. He's so thorough, so precise, so on-message.
The Associated Press (12/9/13) reports: “Just because one spot on Earth has set records for cold that has little to do with global warming because it is one spot in one place, said Waleed Abdalati, an ice scientist at the University of Colorado and NASA's former chief scientist. Both Abdalati, who wasn't part of the measurement team, and Scambos said this is likely an unusual random reading in a place that hasn't been measured much before and could have been colder or hotter in the past and we wouldn't know. ‘It does speak to the range of conditions on this Earth, some of which we haven't been able to observe,’ Abdalati said.”
Unemployment in November was 7.0 percent, said BLS. That was the lowest it has been since November 2008, but also extended the second longest streak of 7.0 percent or higher unemployment since the BLS started tracking national unemployment in 1948.
