Boy Scouts of America Decides to Allow Transgendered Boys [Girls] to Enroll in Scouting Programs

John Stemberger, founder of On My Honor, Chairman of the Board of Trail Life USA, and President of the Florida Family Policy Council released the following statement in light of the Boy Scouts of America’s announcement that they would be allowing transgender boys (biological girls who want to become boys) to enroll in scouting programs:

“This is a profoundly sad but inevitable decision on the part of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).  The “key three” leadership of the BSA assured its membership less than four years ago when they voted to allow openly gay boys in the program that this would never happen.  Now untold thousands of boys in Scouting will be directly exposed to the serious psychological confusion that is characterized by those claiming to be transgender.  As a society, we should have great compassion for children suffering from gender dysphoria while getting them proper counseling and professional help.  Instead, the BSA is encouraging and facilitating a recognized mental disorder that has far reaching consequences to the health and safety of children.

Recently, the American College of Pediatricians released a formal position paper entitled “Gender Identity Harms Children” urging those working with children ‘to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex.’

Further, knowing that boys and biological girls will be showering, dressing and camping in tents together creates a clear child protection issue which is being ignored.  It’s simply stunning that a leading youth organization which parents entrust the protection of their children with has opted to again appease political activists rather than follow clear, common-sense best practices for child protection.”

In light of this decision, parents across America are even more grateful for Trail Life USA, the distinctly Christian scouting organization for boys and young men, which focuses on adventure, character, and leadership in its 700 troops in 48 states across the country.  Trail Life CEO Mark Hancock responded to the decision by saying, “Trail Life USA is saddened to see this decision by the BSA.  We assure our members and chartering organizations that we are committed to the timeless Biblical values affirmed in our Statement of Faith and Values.”

The Betrayer: You’re Fired

The United States Attorney General, the head of the United States Department of Justice per 28 U.S.C. § 503, is concerned with legal affairs, and is the chief law enforcement officer and chief lawyer of the United States government.

The rule of law has been restored with the firing on January 30th, 2017 of acting Attorney General Sally Yates. Yates is an Obama appointee who is used to the civil rights and civil liberties model under the former president. Yates in a letter to all Department of Justice attorneys wrote:

My role is different from that of the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC), which, through administrations of both parties, has reviewed Executive Orders for form and legality before they are issued. OLC’s review is limited to the narrow question of whether, in OLC’s view, a proposed Executive Order is lawful on its face and properly drafted. Its review does not take account of statements made by an administration or it surrogates close in time to the issuance of an Executive Order that may bear on the order’s purpose. And importantly, it does not address whether any policy choice embodied in an Executive Order is wise or just. [Emphasis added]

Determining the wisdom or justness of a Presidential Executive order is not the role of the United States Attorney General. Statements made by the “administration or its surrogates” have been eminently clear in protecting the American people from radical Islamic terrorists. Enforcing the Constitution, defending the United States government and the American people are the primary roles of the U.S. Attorney General. Justice is blind.

Yates, like Loretta Lynch and Eric Holder, all looked at justice via the prism of civil rights/civil liberties rather than the rule of law. Certain groups were treated differently under the law during the previous administration. Yates, Lynch and Holder were more concerned with social justice (a political position) rather than the rule of law under the U.S. Constitution.

With the firing of Yates and the appointment of Acting Attorney General Dana Boente, the rule of law has been reinstated.

The U.S. Government Accounting office in a January 2017 report titled “BORDER SECURITY: CBP Aims to Prevent High-Risk Travelers from Boarding U.S.- Bound Flights, but Needs to Evaluate Program Performance wrote:

CBP [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] data show that it identified and interdicted over 22,000 high-risk air travelers in fiscal year 2015 through its predeparture programs. CBP officers at Preclearance locations determined that 10,648 of the approximately 16 million air travelers seeking admission to the United States through such locations were inadmissible. Similarly, CBP, through its IAP, JSP, and RCLG locations, made 11,589 no-board recommendations to air carriers for the approximately 88 million air travelers bound for the United States from such locations. While CBP’s predeparture programs have helped identify and interdict high-risk travelers, CBP has not fully evaluated the overall effectiveness of these programs using performance measures and baselines. [Emphasis added]

President Trump released the following statement on his Executive Order: Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States:

Statement Regarding Recent Executive Order Concerning Extreme Vetting

“America is a proud nation of immigrants and we will continue to show compassion to those fleeing oppression, but we will do so while protecting our own citizens and border. America has always been the land of the free and home of the brave.

We will keep it free and keep it safe, as the media knows, but refuses to say. My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months. The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror. To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting.

This is not about religion – this is about terror and keeping our country safe. There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order. We will again be issuing visas to all countries once we are sure we have reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days.

I have tremendous feeling for the people involved in this horrific humanitarian crisis in Syria. My first priority will always be to protect and serve our country, but as President I will find ways to help all those who are suffering.”

White House statement on firing of Sally Yates:

The acting Attorney General, Sally Yates, has betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States. This order was approved as to form and legality by the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel.

Ms. Yates is an Obama Administration appointee who is weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration.

It is time to get serious about protecting our country. Calling for tougher vetting for individuals travelling from seven dangerous places is not extreme. It is reasonable and necessary to protect our country.

Tonight, President Trump relieved Ms. Yates of her duties and subsequently named Dana Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to serve as Acting Attorney General until Senator Jeff Sessions is finally confirmed by the Senate, where he is being wrongly held up by Democrat senators for strictly political reasons.

“I am honored to serve President Trump in this role until Senator Sessions is confirmed. I will defend and enforce the laws of our country to ensure that our people and our nation are protected,” said Dana Boente, Acting Attorney General.”

Full text of Sally Yates sent the following letter to all attorneys in the Department of Justice:

On January 27, 2017, the President signed an Executive Order regarding immigrants and refugees from certain Muslim-majority countries. The order has now been challenged in a number of jurisdictions. As the Acting Attorney General, it is my ultimate responsibility to determine the position of the Department of Justice in these actions.

My role is different from that of the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC), which, through administrations of both parties, has reviewed Executive Orders for form and legality before they are issued. OLC’s review is limited to the narrow question of whether, in OLC’s view, a proposed Executive Order is lawful on its face and properly drafted. Its review does not take account of statements made by an administration or it surrogates close in time to the issuance of an Executive Order that may bear on the order’s purpose. And importantly, it does not address whether any policy choice embodied in an Executive Order is wise or just. 

Similarly, in litigation, DOJ Civil Division lawyers are charged with advancing reasonable legal arguments that can be made supporting an Executive Order. But my role as leader of this institution is different and broader. My responsibility is to ensure that the position of the Department of Justice is not only legally defensible, but is informed by our best view of what the law is after consideration of all the facts. In addition, I am responsible for ensuring that the positions we take in court remain consistent with this institution’s solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right. At present, I am not convinced that the defense of the Executive Order is consistent with these responsibilities nor am I convinced that the Executive Order is lawful.

Consequently, for as long as I am the Acting Attorney General, the Department of Justice will not present arguments in defense of the Executive Order, unless and until I become convinced that it is appropriate to do so.

[Emphasis added]

There’s a new reality show in Washington, D.C. called “The Betrayer.” The White House will ferret out those bureaucrats and political appointees who do not abide by their sacred sworn duty to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.

By writing her letter Yates betrayed the United States and endangered its national security. The result: Your fired!

United States Government Accountability Office – BORDER SECURITY: CBP Aims to Prevent High-Risk Travelers from Boarding U.S.- Bound Flights, but Needs to Evaluate Program Performance

The March to Nowhere

A day or two before the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump on January 20th,2017, I watched a reporter interviewing five attractive, intelligent, articulate women from California, who were all making the long cross-country trip to the Women’s March on Washington on January 21st.

Amazingly, not one woman was able to express a persuasive or even rational reason for the trip, but instead resorted to time-worn platitudes, bromides, and leftist talking points about “unity” and “solidarity” and “getting the message out.” Um… what message?

At the March itself, I was struck by the fact that women who pride themselves on their intelligence resorted to reading their statements, never veering a syllable off the scripts that were clearly written for them—scripts, by the way, that were not only boilerplate and banal, but shockingly blasphemous.

Madonna, punctuating her statement with foul-mouthed obscenities, looked down at her script, then lifted her head to speak into the microphone.  “I’m angry.” Pause. Again, she looked at her script, then read: “I’m outraged.” (Very difficult lines to memorize, to be sure). Pause. Again, back to the script where she read about her fantasy of “blowing up the White House.”

Gloria Steinem read from her script. America Ferrara read from her script. Ashley Judd both read and acted out her script. “We’re here to be respected,” she snarled, oblivious to the irony that her ghastly performance evoked the exact opposite.

On and on and on they intoned and screeched and railed, sounding remarkably like barnyard creatures and giving the rest of America the distinct impression that the conceit these women harbor of their superior intellects and evolved moral sensibilities are fantasies borne more of delusions of grandeur than of either objective IQ numbers or developed moral compasses.

But to be fair, they had genuine passion that inspired them to spend thousands of dollars to drive, bus or fly across the country, pay for lodging and food, and then travel back to their homes.

Just kidding. We all know that leftwing activists are notoriously cheap, believers as they are that either government or other benefactors should pay their way.

And sure enough, according to Matthew Vadum’s stunning article, “Soros’s Women’s March of Hate,” billionaire radical George Soros—the same man “who says Communist China’s system of government is superior to our own and that the United States is the number one obstacle to world peace”—was directly involved in funding at least 56 of the March’s ‘partners.’”

Vadum listed a good number of the radical-left and anti-American groups attending the March: Planned Parenthood, the National Resource Defense Council, MoveOn, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International, and Human Rights Watch, Advancement Project; American Constitution Society; America’s Voice; Arab American Association of New York; Asian Americans Advancing Justice; Center for Reproductive Rights; Color of Change; Communities United for Police Reform; Demos; Economic Policy Institute; Every Voice; Green for All; League of Women Voters; Make the Road New York; MPower Change; NAACP; NARAL Pro-Choice America Fund; National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum; National Council of Jewish Women; National Domestic Workers Alliance; National Network for Arab American Communities; National Council of La Raza; PEN America; Psychologists for Social Responsibility; Public Citizen; United We Dream; and Voter Participation Center,” et al.

ENEMIES OF AMERICA

Vadum and others also reported that Muslim terrorist supporter Linda Sarsour, an advocate of Sharia law in America, was deeply involved in planning the March-related events. Sarsour, Vadum wrote, “has familial ties to HAMAS and works with the terrorist front group Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).”

If you’re not sure what Sharia mandates, here are just a few of the grisly details, which include:

  • Relegation of women to a status inferior to men.
  • Testimony of a woman before a judge is worth half that of a man.
  • Muslim men are given permission to beat their wives and commit marital rape, and rape is not considered a felony.
  • Women who are raped are accused of adultery.
  • A woman is not allowed to travel outside the home without the permission of a male.
  • A Muslim woman who divorces and remarries loses custody of children from a prior marriage.
  • ‘Honor’ killing: a Muslim parent faces no legal penalty under Islamic law for killing his child or grandchild.
  • Female genital mutilation, while not required by Islam, is the norm in parts many parts of the world, including the Middle East.

Also among the motley crew of attendees at the March was featured speaker Donna Hylton, a convicted felon who, along with several others, kidnapped a man and then tortured him to death.

Then there was Angela Davis, former Black Panther, former fugitive from U.S. justice, former VP candidate for the U.S. on the Communist Party platform, and famous for her speeches praising American traitors, terrorists, and cop killers.

Also making appearances were Obama cronies, unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and his terrorist wife, Bernadine Dohrn.

On hand, as well, were members of the radical—but ultimately discredited and ineffectual—groups Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter.

Not to forget that most if not all of the women at the March who vehemently objected to then-candidate Trump’s interview with Access Hollywood’s host Billy Bush—in which Mr. Trump talked about the easy access rich and handsome guys like him had to women and how easy it was to grab them by the crotch—were thunderously silent when Bill Clinton was not only abusing and embarrassing and spitting in his wife’s face for decades on end, and also being routinely “serviced” in the Oval Office by one Monica Lewinsky.

Funny how their moral outrage is always reserved for Republicans. But enough about leftist hypocrisy and the piles of debris they left for others to clean up after the March, not quite as bad as the gross mess Barack Obama’s fans left after both of his inauguration ceremonies. What is it about Democrats and cleanliness?

So there they all were—the hysterical harridans of Hollywood and the music industry and the hate-America-firsters—along with ordinary women and their children, all of whom when interviewed also didn’t quite know why they were there but appeared to be perfectly okay with all those “F” words and women dressed up as the female sex organ.

Yuk.

Writer Vadum goes on to quote Asra Q. Nomani—a former Georgetown journalism professor and Wall Street Journal reporter who described herself as “a lifelong liberal feminist who voted for Donald Trump for president.” Nomani wrote that “the march really isn’t a ‘women’s march.’ It’s a march for women who are anti-Trump.”

Nomani was right, but she didn’t zero in on the animating cause of their rage.

THE REAL REASON BEHIND THE RALLY: ABORTION

The Holy Grail of the left is abortion. There is not one subject—including ISIS beheadings, inferior public-school education, unaffordable healthcare, even child pornography—that is more important to leftwing women than unwanted pregnancies, i.e., ending the lives of inconvenient embryos.

But now that science and technology have evolved past the point when feminists like Steinem pronounced embryos “blobs of tissue,” and everyone who views a sonogram can see the vital, heart-beating, active life of the developing baby, let’s review what abortion destroys forever:

  • At two-to-four weeks of pregnancy, the blueprint for an entire human being is established.
  • By four weeks, the ball of cells in the womb is already forming into three layers that will later become your baby’s organs and tissues:
    1. In the top layer, the neural tube begins to form, where your baby’s brain, backbone, spinal cord, and nerves will develop. Skin, hair and nails will also develop from this layer.
    2. The middle layer is where the skeleton and muscles grow, and where the heart and circulatory system will form.
    3. The third layer houses the beginnings of what will become the lungs, the intestines and the urinary system.
  • At six weeks, a baby’s nose, mouth, and ears begin to take shape.
  • At seven weeks, the baby’s hands and feet are formed.
  • At eight weeks, the baby is moving.
  • At 10 weeks, the organs are in place.
  • At 11 weeks, the baby’s hands can open and close into fists, and tiny tooth buds appear.
  • At 12 weeks, the heart is beating, urine is being produced, and the baby’s unique fingerprints are being developed.

All of this is miraculous and awe-inspiring. Still, leftwing women—and their cowed and sissified partners—insist that literally killing the baby they’re carrying is more important than every other issue on earth.

That is why they ostracized—literally banned—any pro-life woman from their March, even feminists who agreed with them on this or that social or foreign policy issue. Bottom line, if the pro-life women didn’t believe in killing babies in the womb, the “inclusive,” tolerant abortionistas were psychologically unable to either include or tolerate them.

Did I fail to mention how inherently racist abortion is? An overwhelming 76.5 percent of aborted babies are either black or Hispanic, according to Californian Stephen Frank, a political activist and commentator.

THE BOTTOM LINE

In one of his first acts, President Trump signed an Executive Order to defund the abortion mill known as Planned Parenthood. He also issued an executive memorandum reinstating the Mexico City policy, which bars federal funding for overseas groups that provide access to or counseling about abortions. And he has vowed to appoint Supreme Court judges who will overturn Roe v Wade, the law that legalized abortion in 1973, effectively returning abortion back to the states, “and then the states will make the determination,” he said.

This is what the mass hysteria was all about—the “right” to end the lives of unborn babies.

Happily, the vast majority of Americans “got” the entire meaning of the anti-life March, which included:

  • The immense hypocrisy of the Left.
  • The surprisingly large number of leftist mothers who thought it was perfectly fine to hurl vile F-bomb epithets in front of their young children.
  • The intellectual and moral impoverishment of leftists.
  • The staggering irrationality of killing in-utero babies instead of waiting a few months and allowing desperate infertile parents to adopt and love them.

All this reinforced to the more than 63-million people who voted for Donald J. Trump for president that his pro-life stance was more timely and powerful than ever!

“Are so many women so shallow?” asks  editor and writer Ruth S. King. “They came, they howled, they carried signs and wore stupid ‘pussyhats’ and they accomplished nothing, nada, zilch other than street theater.”

Paid Protesters at the Corner of ‘Fakenews’ and ‘Faketears’

“George Soros spent a fortune to turn a national party favorable to the left into an organization that has difficulty appealing to anyone not on the left. He wanted to control a country he did not understand. And, as the left so often does, he achieved his goals and in doing so destroyed them.” – Daniel Greenfield, Selous Foundation column January  23, 2017.

Newsmax published an article titled “Soros Funding Airport Protests, Ban Lawsuits Against Trump’s Order” written by Eric Mac. Mac reported:

Billionaire liberal activist George Soros is helping fund the airport protests against President Donald Trump’s executive order to ban refugees from war-torn Syria indefinitely and suspend visas from seven countries for at least 30 days, as PJ Media reported Sunday.

This Soros connection, including reports of funding lawsuits to block the orders, begs the question: Are these protesters being paid to be there?

make the road airport protestOne of the groups protesting is called Make The Road New York (see photo right). Mac notes:

The website’s Debra Heine posted tweets of airport protests against the action, which was granted a stay Saturday night by a New York Judge amid an ACLU fight to block the immigration ban and deportation of stranded travelers from those locations wanting to enter the U.S.

[ … ]

Heine’s next posted tweet is the one that outed the source of the protesters [Make The Road New York]. They are activists being paid in part by Soros.

“‘Make the Road’ is a NY-based far-left non-profit funded in part by George Soros,” Heine wrote Sunday morning.

make the road logoMake The Road New York has job postings at Idealist.org. According to the Make The Road New York website jobs are primarily for “persons of color, women, and gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals are strongly encouraged to apply.” It appears whites in general, white males, white women, straight men and straight women need not apply?

The Democratic Senator from New York, Chuck Schumer, was seen crying when discussing President Donald Trump’s new immigration/extreme vetting Executive Order (EO). Recall that is was Senator Schumer who was an advocate for the Iraq war as well as the attack on Libya which led to the deaths of thousands of Muslim migrants and eventually to the 9/11/2012 attack at the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi.

President Trump responded to Senator Schumer’s crying during a meeting with small business leaders at the White House. President Trump said, “I noticed Chuck Schumer yesterday with the fake tears. I’m going to ask him who was his acting coach, because I know him very well. I don’t see him as a crier. If he is, he’s a different man. There’s about a 5% chance it was real. But I think they were fake tears.”

The media went wild over the weekend looking for anyone who may have been inconvenience by the Presidential Executive Order temporarily halting those from seven countries that the Obama administration named “countries of concern” from entering the United States.

Here just a few of the weekend headlines:

What’s missing from these fake news headlines is that the EO is not a ban on immigration in general, the SAG awards is not the place nor are those who who protested, and stood against the national security policy of the United State, equipped to know what actually is in the EO. The world media coverage was as hilarious as much as it was excessive and single-minded propaganda against the President and the American people.

Democrats have exited the main stream highway and are now on the Make the Road of fakenews and faketears to political perdition. These non-mainstream positions lost them the White House. This does not bode well for Democrats during the 2018 midterm election, particularly in those former blue, now red states taken by the Republican Party.

ACT for America Stands with President Trump and the American People

As the nation’s largest grassroots national security organization, ACT for America wholeheartedly commends President Trump for his actions to curb the influx of refugees from countries with significant terrorist activity.

For too long, our nation has been weakened by the tyranny of political correctness, and as a result, the American people have paid the ultimate price.

There is absolutely no rational reason for the United States of America to be blindly admitting individuals from countries with notable terrorist activity.

Those who claim there is no evidence to suggest that refugees from these countries with terrorist activity pose no threat are at best, guilty of willful ignorance, and at worst, intentional deception.

There is incontrovertible evidence that refugee populations have been infiltrated by sympathizers of the Islamic State, and have already carried out jihadist attacks against the Western world.

act for america logoHere are just a few of the recent refugee attacks on innocent Americans…

  • Somali refugee Abdul Razak Ali Artan went on a jihadi stabbing rampage at Ohio State.
  • In 2016, an Iraqi refugee Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan was accused of planning to bomb a local mall in Texas.
  • In September 2016, a Somali refugee named Dahir Adan went on a stabbing spree at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota.
  • Somali refugee, Mohamed Osman Mohamed, was arrested for planning to blow up a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Oregon back in 2010.
  • In 2012, Abdullatif Ali Aldosary, an Iraqi refugee, bombed a Social Security Office in Arizona.
  • Two Iraqi refugees were convicted for having aided Al-Qaeda in Iraq to kill American servicemen. These so called “refugees,” lied on their applications, and as proof that the screening process is ineffective, were allowed entry without issue.
  • Both Boston Bombers were refugees. The Tsarnaev brothers were brought here courtesy of your paycheck, killing and maiming innocents as a result.

ACT for America, along with President Trump, have had enough innocent American bloodshed, courtesy of our own tax dollars.

The American people need not be lectured by baseless and cliché cries of “Islamophobia,” given that refugees have proven themselves time and time again to be a danger to American citizens.

These protests taking place around the country, are financed largely by those who have no respect for rule of law, or the average American citizen.

To think that in a post 9/11 world, we should have to tolerate anarchist mobs at our airports, disrupting and scaring passengers as they try to make their way through security gates peacefully, is a disgrace to no end.

Rule of law in this country must be restored and power must be used to benefit the average American citizen, not anti-American mobs, nor the politicians who benefit from enabling them.

So, bravo to our new Commander-in-Chief, and our leaders who have supported his dire actions regarding this matter.

No longer should the American people be forced to finance their own endangerment.

We call on all our nation’s representatives to stand with President Trump, and more importantly, the American people on this critical issue.

The risk posed to American lives for suspending refugee resettlement from high risk countries is zero. The risk posed to American lives for not taking such action, is significant.

Case closed.

UNHINGED: Islamic supremacists smear Ted Cruz

In its efforts to block the bill and smear Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas), the senator spearheading the designation effort, CAIR recently claimed that the bill “was written by a disgraced former FBI agent who has made a career out of bashing Muslims and Islam.

Hamas-linked CAIR is accustomed to lying, smearing, and playing the victim on behalf of Muslims living in America, faking anti-Muslim hate-crimes and promoting the bogus “Islamophobia” narrative. CAIR’s desperation is showing, and will likely increase in its fight against the “Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act“.

“Muslim Brotherhood Ally Falsely Smears Senator to Block Terror Designation Bill”, by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, January 27 2017:

An Islamic organization long accused of being part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s network in America has been caught trading in lies as part of an effort to ensure the Brotherhood is not designated as a terrorist entity in the United States, according to information obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR, a Muslim advocacy group that was named by the U.S. government as part of a vast network supporting the terror group Hamas, recently launched an effort to block a bill that would formally designated the Muslim Brotherhood as a terror organization. Many other countries, including Israel and Egypt, have already approved similar legislation.

In its efforts to block the bill and smear Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas), the senator spearheading the designation effort, CAIR recently claimed that the bill “was written by a disgraced former FBI agent who has made a career out of bashing Muslims and Islam,” according to a CAIR press release.

CAIR officials claimed that this purported revelation stains the reputations of Cruz and former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.), who helped draft the original bill.

“The fact that Senator Cruz’s current legislation has its origins in the conspiracy theories of a notorious Islamophobe serves to prove that the bill is designed as the basis for an anti-Muslim witch hunt, not as a legitimate defense of national security,” CAIR Government Affairs Director Robert McCaw said earlier this week.

The Free Beacon can now disclose that CAIR’s claims are false and that John Guandolo, the former FBI agent named by CAIR as the bill’s primary architect, played no role in crafting the legislation, according to sources with direct knowledge of the situation

“In response to the false claims of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) claiming that former FBI Agent John Guandolo was responsible for drafting my 2014 bill calling for the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, I can state absolutely that Mr. Guandolo had nothing to do with the drafting of the bill, nor did anyone from my office seek his input,” Bachmann exclusively told the Free Beacon.

“Unable to address the findings of the bill, CAIR is engaged in a transparent attempt to attack this effort through smears and guilt by association,” Bachmann said.

When presented with Bachmann’s denial, CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper moved to distance his group from the false claims, telling the Free Beacon, “Please contact [news website] WorldNetDaily. They made the claim.”

This, too, appears to be untrue. The original press release specifically attributes the information to CAIR.

“The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today revealed that the original draft of Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) controversial ‘Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act’ was written by a disgraced former FBI agent who has made a career out of bashing Muslims and Islam,” the group wrote.

CAIR’s Hooper did not respond to further Free Beacon requests for comment on whether the organization would retract its claims and provide an apology to the lawmakers in light of new information from Bachmann.

Cruz told the Free Beacon that CAIR’s priorities are misplaced and that it should be working to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terror outfit.

“The Muslim Brotherhood does not represent the Muslim community; they antagonize it,” Cruz said. “If CAIR’s true mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, and empower American Muslims, it would be of great value to denounce the Muslim Brotherhood, along with its radical teachings and commitment to violent jihad.”

CAIR has long attempted to distance itself from its alleged role in a massive terrorism case by the U.S. government against the now defunct Holy Land Foundation, which was found to be funneling money to Hamas terrorists in support of the Muslim Brotherhood’s network in America.

CAIR was identified as an unindicted co-conspirator in the case by the Department of Justice.

David Reaboi, a national security expert and political warfare consultant, told the Free Beacon that CAIR’s main drive is to stop the Muslim Brotherhood from being designated as a terror group….

Cancel your vacation plans: Iran bans U.S. citizens

Oh, this one hurts. I already had my flight booked to Tehran for a three-week vacation. I guess I’ll just have to go to Mogadishu instead.

Seriously, while Iran has a great history, as I explain in my book The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Iran, the Islamic Republic of Iran is so repressive and authoritarian, and so hostile to the United States, that American citizens would be foolish to go there. Hardest hit by this will be people who have family in Iran, and that is unfortunate, but the choice is between admitting people among whom may be jihad terrorists or inconveniencing some others for a temporary period.

Others hard hit will be the likes of Carl Ernst, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill pseudo-academic whose work on Islam is so whitewashed, so fawningly apologetic, so complete in its denial of the jihad doctrine and Sharia oppression, that he was given an award in 2008 by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the genocide-minded anti-Semite who was at that time President of Iran. Ernst happily flew to Tehran to accept. The incident was emblematic of how much American academia has degenerated.

Note also that it’s an “obvious insult to the Islamic world” when the U.S. takes steps to defend itself from jihad terrorism. Any defensive move by any non-Muslim entity is always seized upon by Islamic supremacists and jihadis and presented as if it were an unprovoked act of aggression. This is a tried-and-true response from Islamic entities going back all the way to the Crusades.

“Iran to ban US citizens in response to Trump’s order,” by Ralph Ellis, CNN, January 28, 2017

(CNN)Iran says it will ban all US citizens from entering the country in response to President Donald Trump’s executive order limiting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, according to an Iranian Foreign Ministry statement published on state media Saturday.

Iran is among seven countries whose nationals are barred from entering the United States for 90 days under Trump’s order.

The US ban is “an obvious insult to the Islamic world and in particular to the great nation of Iran,” the statement said.

Quoting Yogi Berra, “It’s like deja-vu, all over again.” Now that the Republicans are back in power the Left (democrats, Hollywood and mainstream media) have dusted off all their old rude crude tactics in an attempt to brand America a hellhole of discontentment, pain, suffering and unfairness.

Obamacare caused Cancer patients to lose their life-saving doctors. Millions of Americans lost health care plans they were happy with which Obama promised they could keep. He lied. Blacks suffered big-time under Obama, moving backwards. 

Americans on food stamps skyrocketed from 31.9 million to 47.6 million under Obama. Ninety-seven million Americans left the labor force under Obama. 

To seduce new future democrat voters, Obama produced TV commercials for Spanish soap operas to encourage illegals to apply for food stamps. Meanwhile, Americans struggled to make ends meet. Expanding the definition of disability shot costs to $200 billion a year while cutting assistance to real disabled Americans.

Yes, there was real pain and suffering under Obama. And yet, fake news portrayed Obama’s regime as 8 years of sweetness and light. The Left’s daily lie was if mean white racist Republicans in congress had only cooperated with him, Obama could have done so much more. The truth is congress did cooperate, fearful of opposing the first black president.

Within hours of Trump taking the oath of office, Leftists were out in full force behaving like vulgar lawless maniacs. Suddenly, Trump is an evil lord making everyone’s life miserable. Leftists began fund-raising, $40 million thus far, to impeach Trump. Their henchmen began physically and politically beating up any and everyone they discover voted for Trump.

This headline really got my goat. “Girls Scouts Under Fire for Marching in Trump’s Inaugural Parade.”

Folks, this is the kind of deplorable arrogant bullying from the Left that we have passively tolerated for far too long. C’mon, beating up on the girl scouts? Really? The Left pulls this crap because they can. My political activism began around 2008. Since then, all I have heard from experts on our side is do not push back too hard, less we make Leftists angry and we get negative press. News flash, fake news demonizes us even when we do nothing.

Remember that best-seller, “All I Really Needed to Know, I learned in Kindergarten”? I was a small kid. When bullies in our Baltimore projects confiscated my lunch money, cousin Jimmy got in their faces. The bullying ended. This is how we must deal with Leftist bullies. I love Trump’s zero-tolerance with being slandered by fake news. Trump’s Chief-of-Staff Reince Priebus proclaimed, “We’re not going to sit around and take it.”

Now, about that demeaning anti-Trump women thing in DC. Fake news claimed half a million women showed up. It was awful folks, triple X rated. Leftist media celebrated and normalized profanity, deviancy and vulgarity. With kids in the audience, Madonna repeatedly dropped F bombs and told president Trump to “suck a d***.” Ashley Judd ranted about bloody sheets and tampons. Thousands of women wore hats they described as “p**** hats” at the rally. Unbelievably, Trump’s life was boldly threatened from the podium. One protest sign read, “Black Trans Queer Lives Matter.” I thought, how many of them are there in the world? Ten?

Call me crazy, but what are these women so upset about?

For crying out loud, Leftists have branded maleness a mental illness. Fathers are disrespected and portrayed as idiots in sitcoms and movies. Women dominate college campuses because guys refuse to stomach being told what jerks they are in forced feminist “re-education” courses. Though fake news ignores it, there is an aggressive feminist War on Masculinity. Women have confided in me their discomfort watching football with the players running around wearing pink.

Leftist media glorified a lesbian couple for trying to feminize “queer” their 17 month old baby boy, forcing him to wear tutus. The parents admitted, “he hates it.” The couple says they are frustrated by their son’s male tendencies

I ask again, what on earth was that mob of crazies in DC so angry about? Women hold 60% of personal wealth, 51% of stocks in the U.S. and live longer. And, they own most of the shoes.

I am black. I cannot imagine waking up, looking at myself in the bathroom mirror and saying, “Hey big guy, America is really screwing you. Spend 3 grand traveling to DC to protest.”

Folks, the insane out-of-control anti-Trump protesters are a minority. Trump’s landslide electoral victory proves that. Still, we can no longer allow breaking the law and bullying people with impunity.

Cousin Jimmy went nose to nose with my Nemesis, “Leave Peanut alone!” The cowardly bullies obeyed.

U.S. Cases of refugees arrested or convicted on terror charges, and other heinous crimes

Dear dishonest (anti-Trump) mainstream media reporters, why can’t you report that he might have a point about our security!

jasim-ramadon

Iraqi interpreter Jasim Ramadon

I’ve had requests from readers in the last day or so for a list of cases where refugees/asylees have been arrested and have either been convicted on terrorism related charges or are in the process of being tried on those charges.  And, for good measure I added in some horrible crimes committed by refugees in the US in this post I wrote in mid-December.

Iraqi interpreter Jasim Ramadon serving 28 years for raping Colorado woman. Will he be deported when released?

I’m posting it again because we have new readers and because Kevin Appleby, in his interview with Tucker Carlson, here, couldn’t think of one!

By the way, Appleby dismissed the Tsarnaev (Boston bomber) brothers saying they weren’t really refugees. They were successful asylum seekers which makes them refugees under the Refugee Act of 1980!  The refugee propagandists have been getting away with parsing their words for way too long!

And, if you missed my previous post about the Iraqi interpreter serving a long prison sentence for leading a gang rape of a Colorado woman, go here.

From December 15, 2016:

I’ve been procrastinating about writing this post, because it required work!

I had to go back through my over 2,000 posts on refugee crimes, here, and pull out Islamic terror cases involving refugees. I chose ten, not for any other reason than these ten below are at the top of my mind. And, I think ten is enough to counter the disinformation campaign going on.

For good measure, I have also added (below) a few spectacular crimes involving Muslim refugees.

But, I have to do it (to write this) because clearly the refugee industry has sent out talking points that I am seeing parroted many times each day which pretty much go like this: no refugee has committed an act of terror in the US.  LOL! And, maybe that is because many were arrested and convicted BEFORE they could do anything!

And, let me ask you, when evaluating the fact that you (as a taxpayer) paid for a refugee’s opportunity to come to America and in some cases below even paid to raise the refugee to adulthood, does it matter for your anger level that he/she planned to kill Americans or planned to kill some innocents somewhere else in the world?  So when the refugee advocates make a distinction about the location of the wannabe jihadist’s target, it’s a difference without a distinction to me!

Here are ten that come to mind:

  1. The Somali (Mohamed Osman Mohamud) arrested on charges he planned to blow up a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Oregon was a refugee.  See here in 2010. He was arrested as he planned to detonate a bomb.

    mohanad-hammadi

    Mohanad Hammadi

  2. Kentucky refugee terrorist Mohanad Hammadi is serving a life sentence. ” Hammadi also admitted to lying on U.S. immigration paperwork about his involvement in Iraqi insurgent operations against American troops.”
  3. Two Iraqi refugees were convicted on charges that they helped Al Qaeda in Iraq and may have killed American servicemen there.  They lied on their refugee applications. Best coverage of 2011 case here by ABC News.  The entire Iraqi flow to America had to be re-screened that year!
  4. In 2012 Abdullatif Ali Aldosary (an Iraqi refugee) set off a bomb at a Social Security Office in Arizona. Sentenced here.
  5. As successful asylum seekers, the Boston Bombers were refugees who had benefited from America’s generosity. One of many stories here about the 2012 deadly Boston Marathon attack by the Tsarnaev brothers (Chechens).
  6. In 2013 Fazliddin Kurbanov was arrested in Idaho and later convicted on terrorism charges. Kurbanov is an Uzbek refugee. See here.
  7. In early 2016 an Iraqi refugee (Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan) living in Texas was accused of planning to bomb a local popular mall, see story at Newsweek.
  8. In September 2016, a Somali refugee went on a stabbing spree at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Learn more here about Dahir Adan.  Knife attacks are signature terror acts for devout Muslims.
  9. Also in September, the Chelsea bomber, Ahmad Rahimi, was arrested and we learned his family came to the US from Afghanistan and were given asylum.  We need to be paying more attention to these asylum seekers since they enter the country completely unscreened and their numbers are on the rise. Story at CNN.  Once granted asylum they are given all the same rights and privileges as the refugees we fly in.
  10. And, we can’t forget the most recent successful attack by Somali refugee slasher, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, at Ohio State, see here.

For number ten, I’m lumping the dozens of wannabe Somali refugee jihadists (mostly from Minnesota) who have been identified and/or convicted of wanting to leave the country to fight for al-Shabaab or ISIS. See here Several like those in that recent case, were convicted.

Now, here are some horrible crimes I’ve reported over the years!

Esar Met, listens to proceedings in Judge Judith Atherton's court room, at the Matheson Courthouse in Salt Lake City, Thursday, January 9, 2014. Esar Met is accused of killing 7-year-old Hser Ner Moo, who disappeared on March 31, 2008.

Esar Met

And remember not only did you pay for the refugee’s trip to America and his welfare when he got here, but now you will pay for (in many cases) their lives in prison.

  • It is hard to rank murder cases, but for me the top of the list is a horrible rape and murder of a Christian refugee child in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2008.  The Burmese Muslim murderer (Esar Met) is now incarcerated for life. The child was the youngest child and only daughter of a Burmese Christian family. Medical examiner said 7-year-old little girl died in “excruciating pain.
  • In 2013 a Somali refugee in North Dakota was sentenced to life in prison for the 2011 murder of a native American family he had become involved with.
  • In this case in 2014, an Iraqi refugee murdered his wife (she was going to leave him in 2012) and he penned a fake note trying to pin the murder on Islamophobes in the neighborhood. He was found guilty here and he wasn’t too happy about it! Even CAIR had gotten involved when he tried to pin the murder on Islamophobic Americans.
  • And this is an awful case from Colorado where a gang of Iraqi refugees brutally raped a local Colorado Springs woman—“the worst case in Colorado history.” Diana West did a great investigative report on the story, here, at Townhall.
  • And, if you have never seen the 2009 Roanoke, VA kidnapping story, don’t miss it here!  No one ever accused these refugees of being too bright! By the way, these guys only got about 5 years so they are probably out roaming Anytown, USA right now. I doubt they were deported.

I’m sure I have more, but I want to move on to other news today.

Here is an idea!

If your town is having a public meeting on whether to ‘welcome’ refugees, you know the pro-refugee team will be there with their talking points. Maybe print this post out and take it along to counter them.  Or, better still, dig into some of these cases and be prepared with maybe even a poster with photos and talking points of your own! [Update: See a poster one of our grassroots activists made by scrolling down here.]

And, when they tell you that refugees bring economic benefits to communities, ask if they are factoring in the costs of crime/trials/incarceration!

Women at the Women’s March: The Three Faces of Evel

The 1957 drama-mystery film “The Three Faces of Eve” is based on a true story of a woman with a “multiple personality disorder.”

Multiple personality disorder, renamed dissociative identity disorder, “is usually a reaction to trauma as a way to help a person avoid bad memories” and “is characterized by the presence of two or more distinct personality identities. Each may have a unique name, personal history, and characteristics.”

We saw multiple “personality disorders” in full view during the Women’s March in Washington, D.C.

Anti-Christian Women’s March banner.

The trauma was the election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States of America. It is a bad memory that many are trying to avoid coming to grips with.

There were at least three distinct “personality disorders” present during the Women’s March. They are:

  1. Hollywood hate speech. The best examples of personality disorders are of Hollywood’s inability to deal with what some have called the “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” Among them were producer Michael Moore, actresses Ashley Judd and Scarlett Johansson and pop singer Madonna. It was Madonna who stated, “Yes, I’m angry, yes, I’m outraged, yes I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House, but I know that this won’t change anything.” George Mason University economist Alex Tabarrok pointed out in the Wall Street Journal in June 2010, Hollywood frequently portrays capitalists as villains in films: Erin Brockovich, Syriana, Mission Impossible II, Star Wars (yes, it’s true, Jaba the Hut is a literal business worm meant to represent commerce), The China Syndrome, Wall Street, the list continues.
  2. Islamic supremacism. Co-Chair of the Women’s March was Linda Sarsour. Sarsour is a Palestinian Muslim activist who has defended Islam and supports Islamic (shariah) laws. Islamic law is anti-women, anti-gay and calls all non-Muslims infidels. Islamists have declared a holy war (jihad) against non-Muslims and non-observant Muslims alike. Many Muslims take to the streets shouting “death to America” including Muslims living in Chicago. Palestinian organizations like HAMAS and the Palestinian Liberation Front are on the list of U.S. State Department designated terrorist organizations. In a 2004 article that appeared on the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism website, Sarsour acknowledged that a friend of hers as well as her (Sarsour’s) cousin were both serving long sentences (99 years and 25 years, respectively) in Israeli jails because of their efforts to recruit jihadists to murder Israeli Jews. Moreover, she revealed that her brother-in-law was serving a 12-year sentence in Israel because of his affiliation with Hamas. To learn more about Linda Sarsour go here.
  3. Anarchy (criminal behavior). One of the featured speakers at the Women’s March was Donna Hylton. The Daily Caller reported, “Hylton, along with three men and three other women, kidnapped 62-year-old real-estate broker Thomas Vigliarolo and held him for ransom, before eventually killing him. As noted in a 1995 Psychology Today article, when asked about forcibly sodomizing the victim with a three foot steel pole, one of Hylton’s accomplices replied: ‘He was a homo anyway’.” Read more about Donna Hylton.

These are the faces of Evel…

Neil deGrasse Tyson is Wrong. Very Wrong!

It’s not everyday that you get to tell a world-renowned physicist that he is wrong. Really, really wrong.

Popular astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, a best-selling author and television personality, is a witty and engaging man — hence his TV popularity. Unfortunately, he’s also got a stringent political worldview based on atheism and leftist politics, and despite his style, his words often reveal the elitism that drives away those not of his political persuasion.

This was most recently revealed in a tweet to his 6.5 million followers (that is a very popular astrophysicist!)

degrass tweet 1

That is an astonishingly inaccurate implication from a scientist — and note the tens of thousands of retweets and likes. For a man who is constantly promoting truth over what we want to be true — that’s generally a shot at religion — it is easily shown to be false.

But this is part and parcel with his worldview; varying degrees of a anti-Americanism, or maybe pro-globalism. But certainly not accepting the idea of American exceptionalism, despite overwhelming evidence.

Here are several areas showing Tyson is just dead wrong in his downer assessment of the past 45 years. And to a degree so is President Trump, in that America never stopped being great, and this shows it.

45 years later, quality of life is soaring

  • 45 years later, extreme poverty globally has been slashed, perhaps the greatest achievement of the second half of the 20th century. In 1980, 43 percent of the world population lived in extreme poverty. But due to more capitalistic economic reforms and streams of technological advances — driven primarily by the United States —  extreme poverty globally is down to 17 percent and continuing to decline, according to the World Bank.
  • 45 years later, we’ve all but eradicated hunger and poverty in the United States. According to the Pew Research Center, “The U.S. stands head and shoulders above the rest of the world. More than half (56%) of Americans were high income by the global standard, living on more than $50 per day in 2011…Another 32% were upper-middle income. In other words, almost nine-in-ten Americans had a standard of living that was above the global middle-income standard. Only 7% of people in the U.S. were middle income, 3% were low income and 2% were poor.”
  • 45 years later, the infant survival rate is up 70 percent since 1972. It’s still too high, but the decline has been precipitous.
  • 45 years later, life expectancy has soared. In 1972, life expectancy in the United States was 71. Today it is 80. In 1966, average life expectancy globally was only 56 years. Today it’s 72, a 29 percent increase, according to Human Progress. Huge.
  • 45 year later, the computers we carry in our pockets as smart phones are more powerful than the array of computers that put man on the moon. Our ability to google information is transforming knowledge. Even in third-world countries, cell phones are everywhere. There are 7 billion cell phone subscriptions on earth.
  • 45 years later, pollution has plummeted in the United States. Between 1970 and 2000, the American population grew by 36 percent and energy consumption by 45 percent, but air pollutants decreased 29 percent. U.S. pollution has continued to decline since 2000.

45 years later, space accomplishments are breathtaking

  • 45 years later we have a fully manned space station. Mankind has been constantly living in space for many years, now. That’s kind of wow.
  • 45 years later, we have probes on Mars, tooling around the red planet of science fiction fame and sending back images and data. From Mars!
  • 45 years later, we managed to land a robot on an icy comet barely two miles wide, 300 million miles away. Oh, and the comet was hurtling through through space at 50,000 mph. Pretty amazing accomplishment

One would think an astrophysicist like Tyson would think such things were pretty impressive, and not to be hidden in the periods of a snarky ellipsis.

And then there was this.

degrass tweet 2

But he tweets things that are demonstrably not true. The consistency is that they fit a predictable worldview. He takes the position that since he is smarter than everyone else (which he might be, but smart does not mean right, and it sure doesn’t necessarily equate to wisdom) then we should all just accept what he says.

Well, no. And his tweets show why.

This final example tweet reveals his elitist gene in full bloom.

degrass tweet 3

This is why worldview matters. While Tyson is an engaging man and trained astrophysicist, it is his worldview that informs the anti-American sentiments, from us not accomplishing anything noteworthy in 45 years to taking a shot at the most popular sport in the nation.

But worldview also may explain the example he chose from 45 years ago. In our long list since 45 years ago, none of them were high-profile, big government operations such as the moon landing. They were largely incremental increases of the market driven by private-sector capitalism.

And that is a truth unacceptable to some worldviews.

The Elephant in the Living Room

When Dwight Eisenhower left the White House in January 1961 he retired quietly to his farm in Gettysburg.  When Richard Nixon left the White House he retired to his seaside home in San Clemente to write a memoir and to begin the painful reconstruction of his shattered reputation.   When Jerry Ford left Washington he bought a house in Palm Springs and headed for the golf course.  When Ronald Reagan left the White House he retired quietly to his home in Pacific Palisades and to his ranch in the hills above Santa Barbara.  When George H.W. Bush left the White House, he retired to his home in Houston and to his seaside home on the rugged coast of Kennebunkport, Maine.  And when George W. Bush finished his second term he retired to his ranch in Crawford, Texas, and to a new home in Dallas.  In no case did any of those Republican ex-presidents attempt to insert themselves into the debate over the issues of the day, or waste their time sniping at their successors from the sidelines.

But now it appears that Barack Obama has something quite different in mind.  He has let it be known that he intends to remain in Washington, D.C., where he expects to establish something of a legacy by commenting regularly on a broad range of issues.  He may see himself as the “toast of the town” in Washington, adored by the masses and consulted by the mainstream media on everything from world peace to the pros and cons of the cross-handed putter grip, but his days of moving about town in long motorcades, with hundreds of aides at his beck and call, are over.  It remains to be seen how he’ll adapt to his new role, moving about Washington in a single black SUV with two Secret Service agents in the front seat, looking more like a one-car funeral than a once-powerful president.  He will learn very quickly that a failed ex-president with nothing more to offer than a toothy smile is not worth much more than… to quote former Democratic vice president John Nance Garner … “a bucket of warm piss.”

But what is most disturbing about the current transition is the number of liberals, Democrats, and media elites who refuse to accept the fact of Donald Trump’s victory and who continue to propagate the fiction that he is not a legitimately elected president.   This is an exceptionally dangerous game for liberals and Democrats to be playing, given that the Democrat who has just vacated the White House has still not provided, to this day, convincing proof of who he is.

It is an indisputable fact that two of Obama’s principal identifying documents… his draft registration card and his long form Hawaiian birth certificate… are both rather clumsy forgeries, while the Social Security number he uses on his state and federal tax returns is not his own and will not pass a simple Social Security E-Verify test.

When Obama was first elected in 2008, it was the fundamental imperative and inherent responsibility of the delegates to the Democratic national convention, the leadership of the Democratic Party, the Democratic members of the Electoral College, and the members of the U.S. House and Senate… Democrats and Republicans alike… to assure themselves of his qualifications and his constitutional eligibility.  They all failed, utterly, in that responsibility.

Unfortunately, when it comes to political advantage or disadvantage, Democrats have no qualms about such things.  When the members of the House and Senate met in joint session on January 6, 2017 to certify the election of Donald Trump and Mike Pence, a number of Democrats rose to object… precisely what House and Senate Republicans should have done in January 2009, and again in January 2013, but failed to do so for fear of creating turmoil in the black community.

While some might assume that Obama intends to play the role of the “spoiler” for the Trump administration, that assumption overstates the role that he might play as a former president.  And while he clearly sees himself as the hero of the leftward march, he gives himself far too much credit.  He may be liked, personally, by millions of Americans who fail to separate the man from his politics, but as a leader of the free world he has been an abysmal failure.

Now, as he leaves the White House and members of his party continue to make false claims regarding Trump’s legitimacy, the specter of Obama’s own lack of eligibility looms large over the nation’s capital.  Although inside-the-beltway Republicans and political pundits have not as yet recognized it as such, Obama’s constitutional ineligibility may yet be the “elephant in the living room” of the current political environment.  And if Democrats persist, a vengeful Donald Trump might be searching for a major diversion to keep Obama busy.  How could he better accomplish this end than by causing an enterprising investigative reporter, eager to earn a Pulitzer, to begin digging into the question of Obama’s presidential eligibility, retrospectively?

Few Trump supporters have forgotten the shameless treatment he received at the April 30, 2011, White House Correspondents dinner when Obama and “Saturday Night Live” comic, Seth Meyers, used him as a human punching bag, ridiculing him unmercifully from the podium.  Many feel certain that, it was in that moment in time, that Trump’s need to seek the ultimate revenge became the deciding factor in his decision to run for president of the United States.

But why was he there?  He was not a White House correspondent and he was certainly not a member of the Washington political elite.  According to an April 28, 2016 Washington Post story by writer Roxanne Roberts, “In 2011, Trump had become more than a reality TV star.  He was one of the leaders of the ‘birther’ movement, a loud campaign that insisted that Obama had not been born in the United States and was not eligible for the presidency.  Although the claim was discredited, Trump (publicly toying with a presidential campaign) remained unconvinced of the president’s citizenship.  The story was everywhere; Hawaii released Obama’s original long-form birth certificate just days before the April 30 dinner.”

In questioning why Trump was invited to the dinner, it is important to recall that just days earlier, on April 13, 2011, Obama gave then-House Budget Committee Chairman, Paul Ryan, a public dressing-down.  In a budget speech delivered at George Washington University, Obama ridiculed the budget proposal by House Republicans unmercifully, while Ryan sat, stone-faced and unamused, in the front row… literally within spitting distance of Obama.  And while Obama later insisted that he was unaware that Ryan had been invited to the event, what we have come to know about Obama’s political instincts tells us that the public humiliation of Ryan was carefully planned, a well-thought-out political ambush, as was Trump’s presence at the April 30 White House Correspondents dinner just two weeks later.

The Post story continued,

“Word that Trump was attending as a guest of The Post landed in the newsroom with a thud.  Inviting a reality star was fine.  Inviting a leading voice of the ‘birthers’ was a problem for many reporters, who were concerned that it appeared as though one of America’s most respected newspapers was giving Trump (and by extension, ‘birthers’) credibility.”

As The Post writer described the scene, the audience had been consuming “adult beverages” for more than three hours.  And when Obama rose to speak the “Hulk Hogan” theme song “Real American” blared from the sound system while a representation of Obama’s Hawaiian birth certificate flashed on video screens around the room.  Noting that Trump was in the audience, Obama said, “Now, I know that he’s taken some flak lately, but no one is happier, no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald.  And that’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter… like, did we fake the moon landing? (laughter)  What really happened in Roswell? (laughter)  And… where are Biggie and Tupac? (laughter)”

Then, speaking directly to Trump, he said, “But all kidding aside, obviously, we all know about your credentials and breadth of experience. (laughter)  For example – no, seriously, just recently, in an episode of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ – at the steakhouse, the men’s cooking team did not impress the judges from Omaha Steaks.  And there was a lot of blame to go around.  But you, Mr. Trump, recognized that the real problem was a lack of leadership. (laughter)  And so ultimately, you didn’t blame Lil Jon or Meatloaf. (laughter)  You fired Gary Busey. (laughter)  And these are the kind of decisions that would keep me up at night. (laughter)  Well handled, sir.  Well handled. (laughter)”

When it was Seth Meyers’ turn at the podium he continued the evisceration by saying,

“Donald Trump has been saying he will run for president as a Republican… which is surprising, since I just assumed he was running as a joke. (laughter)

“Trump owns the Miss USA Pageant, which is great for Republicans, because it will streamline their search for a vice president. (laughter)

“Donald Trump said recently he’s got a great relationship with ‘the blacks.’  Unless the Blacks are a family of white people, I bet he’s mistaken. (laughter)”

New Yorker Magazine writer Adam Gopnik sat just a few tables away where he was not only able to observe Trump but also believed that he could read Trump’s mind.  He later wrote,

“On that night, Trump’s own sense of public humiliation became so overwhelming that he decided, perhaps at first unconsciously, that he would, somehow, get his own back – perhaps even pursue the Presidency after all, no matter how nihilistically or absurdly, and redeem himself.”

Given what we already know about Obama’s lack of presidential eligibility, Trump would be a fool not to use that powerful weapon to destroy him.  And so long as liberals, Democrats, and the mainstream media continue to question Trump’s legitimacy, Obama would be wise to simply fold his tent and quietly sneak out of town… while he still can.

Donald Trump is the sort of man who understands that “revenge is a dish best served cold,” and it is his seething, unquenchable thirst for revenge against Barack Obama that is “the elephant in the living room,” circa 2017.

ISIS Using Drones To Kill Civilians and Soldiers in Mosul

Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) is using attack drones to drop grenades while fighting to keep hold of the Iraqi city of Mosul. Captured by ISIS in 2014, Iraq’s second largest city is in the process of being recaptured from the terrorist group by the Iraqi army.

One strike in eastern Mosul, which has been liberated by Iraqi national forces, wounded eight people.

Previously, ISIS was known to use drones for surveillance purposes. Now the drones have been upgraded to be used as attack weapons. “This is the first time I’ve heard of ISIL dropping weapons from a drone,” Iraqi special forces medic Colonel Khalil Jawad told The Telegraph.

ISIS is thought to be using easily-purchasable hobbyist drones such as quadracoptors along with slightly larger fixed-wing aircraft.

As this technology advances, ISIS and other terrorist groups will come up with new ways to apply the technology to terrorism.

They have already used social media to their benefit, using it to recruit people online to their cause. They have used cars and trucks to carry out terrorist attacks in Europe and Israel.

In the latest issue of Al-Qaeda’s propaganda magazine Al-Risalah, the magazine explains to jihadists how to use the deep web to communicate effectively without alerting the watchful eye of the state.

Until the underlying ideology fuelling jihadist terrorism is addressed, coping with each developing security threat as new technologies and methods of slaughter emerge will simply be a game of wack-a-mole.

Treating the Six Known Symptoms of ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’

I suspect all of us who are on social media, or are known to have voted for Donald Trump, have felt the escalating malice and name-calling from Trump-haters, now nobly referring to themselves as #theresistance. Yeah, they’re the flippin’ French Underground fighting the Nazis.

What we are seeing is the worldview epidemic of Trump Derangement Syndrome, which can be defined as an irrational level of hatred of Donald Trump the man, the businessman, the husband, the father, the candidate, the President.

All hate all the time, to the point that many are professing upfront that they will never accept him as president (including sitting congressmen such as John Lewis) and plan marches against the Great Oppressor before he is even sworn in as president. Yes, the derangement reached the point that a businessman who had no effect on almost anyone’s life, and was given awards for his work with the inner city (see picture) was protested as an oppressor before he had any power whatsoever.

Since this contagion is spreading among one type of political person, and they live among us all, herewith are some treatment options you can try on those suffering from the disease. There’s no cure beyond a worldview revelation and some historic context, which will be difficult to realize while suffering under this, but there are treatments to lessen the severity of certain symptoms.

Symptom 1: Trump is an illegitimate president

The disease here forces its sufferers to undermine a newly elected United States President before he is inaugurated. This means making the case that the President of the United States is not really president. Dangerous to the country, delusional for the individual.

Treatment: Suggest that this overt anti-patriotism is unbecoming of Americans who have a history of pulling together after an election, even Republicans after the two elections of Barak Obama. No Republicans acted in such ways. Further, point out that the last newly elected Republican president that bitter Democrats did this to was Abraham Lincoln. Heads will spin. Spittle may fly. But Trump Derangement Syndrome is not contagious by touch. It’s an infection of the rational thought process.

Further treatment for this syndrome is listing all of the items that have been blamed for Trump’s win (none of which ever actually include Hillary Clinton.) The first thing blamed was the racist Electoral College. (Sorry, but you just need to understand that sufferers see everything as racist.) The popular vote is what should count! Hillary is our President! Well, no. The rules are the rules and we don’t change rules after a game is concluded because the losers don’t like the results. Then it was fraud in Wisconsin and Michigan and Pennsylvania and Jill Stein was going to uncover it. There was fraud all right, but not committed by Trump voters. Then it was another try at FBI Director Jim Comey. If not for Comey, Hillary would have won. Well, if she hadn’t played the Nixon card and deleted 33,000 emails from her unsecured server that had classified documents and more on it, there would have been no need for Comey. And now finally, it’s the Russians.

The disease comes with a fever.

Symptom 2: Putin/Russia hacked the election

Since Russia “hacked” the election on Trump’s behalf — or so the claim goes — then Trump will be in the back pocket of the Russians and will go easy on them.

Treatment: Very easy. Treat with context. Point out that he couldn’t go easier on them than Obama/Clinton did. After the embarrassing “reset” button — remind them how terrible they claimed relations were because of Bush to set the first context — point out that the Obama administration did nothing when Russia invaded and took over Crimea; nothing when Russia invaded eastern Ukraine and appears to have annexed it; and nothing in Syria despite the cries for help, allowing the Russians to go back in for the first time since the Cold War to help their old ally crush the rebels ruthlessly. This gave us the humanitarian disaster that is Aleppo.

Trump could hardly do worse than this record.

Symptom 3: Outrage over a foreign nation interfering with our elections

This is meant to keep focus on the nefarious Russian nemesis that now owns Trump and further the narrative that the Trump presidency is illegitimate. (Actually, Russia really is a problem that Obama’s weakness enabled and emboldened and is now leaving for his predecessor.)

Treatment: Easiest yet. Casually point out that the Obama Administration overtly worked to defeat Brexit and made threats that Britain would no longer enjoy its trade status under a Bexit approval. No outrage though by those suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. Add that Obama’s campaign team was sent to Israel to work on behalf of Benjamin Netanyahu’s opponent. Again, no outrage by those suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. In 1996, the Clinton Administration tried to bolster the election of Boris Yeltsin by endorsing a $10.2 billion loan from the IMF that was to be linked to privatization, more open trade policies further steps toward capitalism. Yeltsin used the loan to bolster support among voters. And, once again, no outrage by those suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. This symptom is a classic case of selective outrage and reveals mere partisanship and nothing higher.

It’s unknown the course this syndrome will take, but with treatment, we hope it can be managed and those suffering from it will over time regain their proper faculties.

Symptom 4: Fight the Oppressor!

The claim that Donald Trump was a great oppressor gained currency weeks before he was elected. A businessman with no power and who had no effect on almost anyone’s life, and was given awards alongside Muhammad Ali and Rosa Parks, was protested as a racist oppressor before he had any power whatsoever. That’s TDS.

Treatment: It’s important that those suffering from this symptom be treated with some honest context. While Trump had no power to oppress, President Obama did. And did.

First, the Obama Administration sicked the most feared of U.S. institutions, the IRS, directly on his political opponents. Any group seeking tax exempt status that had Tea Party or Conservative in its name was targeted for denial through attrition. Dozens of those applied — a relatively quick and simple process — but were run through the wringer, some for years, until they ran out of money to keep filing. They never received that and so could not raise money to oppose President Obama’s 2012 reelection. Obama denied Americans their Constitutional rights to further his personal political career. That was oppressive.

Second, Obamacare fines people for not buying a product President Obama decided Americans should buy. That’s oppressive and would have been unconstitutional but for a politicized Supreme Court.

Symptom 5: Protests, threats of impeachment before he’s president

I wanted to start a pretend pool on how long it would take for sufferers of Trump Derangement Syndrome to call for impeaching Trump after the moment of inauguration. Measured in months, weeks, days, hours or seconds. Well, I was too late, because calls for impeachment began before he was sworn into office. No matter, there will be members of Congress who will call for it within days, weeks at the longest

Treatment: Inform the TDS sufferers that there are actually tight controls on impeachment, and they do not include vulgar behavior or ideas with which opponents disagree.

Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution, is helpful here: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

Symptom 6: 66 members of Congress boycotted the inauguration

Clearly, Trump Derangement Syndrome has affected the highest levels of our government — if not the actual strongest of our people. A rather astounding 34 percent of the Democrat members of Congress boycotted the inauguration and were cheered on by other fevered sufferers of TDS. It was a tragic moment for them and an embarrassment.

Treatment: Remind TDS sufferers that one of the greatnesses of the United States is the peaceful transition of power between political opponents. Since the Civil War, this has always been the case. The Obamas, the Clintons, the Carters, along with the Bushes, all participated in this American truth. All handled with dignity and class — which could not have been easy for Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama. But they did it.

We will update symptoms and treatment as they become visible and available.

Suggestion for President Trump: Save up to $45 billion by cutting International Rescue Committee funding

Everyday I start my day at around 5 a.m. with CNN.  I recommend that you all consider doing that (not necessarily at that hour!) because it is so informative to see how they spin the news each and every day. Kind of fires me up to get to work!

In 2013, Miliband awarded George Soros the IRC’s Freedom Award (this is not a joke, or fake news!).

This morning CNN showed a clip of the International Rescue Committee’s CEO David Miliband whining (in his snooty British accent!) about Trump’s EO on refugees.  I tried to find the clip just now, but couldn’t.  But it doesn’t matter.

This is what you need to know (especially you lazy reporters who never mention that the refugee contractors, including the IRC, are largely taxpayer funded while you pretend their intentions are pure as the driven snow!).

The IRC is one of the nine major federally funded refugee contractors.

David Miliband is a British national who came over from the UK a few years back to run the International Rescue Committee which places refugees in a couple dozen US cities. He was a former Foreign Secretary and is the brother of ‘Red’ Ed.

The International Rescue Committee had an annual income stream of $688,920,920 for the year ending September 2015 according to ‘Charity Navigator.’ 

66.5% of that income came from you—the U.S. taxpayer!

Miliband is paid annual compensation of $591,846! What the h*** does he do for that kind of money? Doing well by doing good, but is he?

And, here is where the IRC is placing refugees in America (screenshot from their website):

Think about it! A rich British elitist is changing American cities and we taxpayers pay him to do it!So my suggestion to the President is to begin balancing the US budget by cutting off the supposed humanitarians, especially the foreign ones being paid handsome salaries out of the US Treasury! Let them raise PRIVATE money from those who want refugees seeded throughout America. Heck, the US taxpayer could save almost a half a billion bucks annually by pulling them off the federal teat!

We have a lot more on Miliband (Hillary had a crush on him, he likes her smile), click here for more.
