Why Does Obama Disregard the Law?

National Review ^ | August 6, 2013 | Stanley Kurtz 

Kevin Williamson’s thoughtful and helpful piece, “The Front Man,” raises the question of why President Obama has so openly, systematically, and remorselessly set about exploring the limits of his ability to disregard the law. I have a somewhat different take on that question, and it begins with this video excerpt from an address given by Obama in 2002. There, Obama says, “I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but rich people are all for non-violence. Why wouldn’t they be? They’ve got what they want.”
Here the future president shows himself perfectly capable of drawing upon the thought of his more questionable friends, who argued that the chronic violence of the system itself justifies counter-violence, at least in principle, even if not in practice in our current context.

Obama’s Radical Past

National Review ^ | October 12, 2010 | Stanley Kurtz 

A loose accusation of his being a socialist has trailed Obama for years.... But the evidence exists, if not in plain sight then in the archives — for example, the archived files of the Democratic Socialists of America.... That, along with some misleading admissions in [] Dreams from My Father, makes it clear that Obama attended the 1983 and 1984 Socialist Scholars conferences.... A detailed account of these conferences (along with many other events from Obama’s radical past) and the evidence for Obama’s attendance at them can be found in my new book, Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism.
By the mid-1980s, James Cone, Jeremiah Wright’s theological mentor, had struck up a close cooperative relationship with the DSA.
A little-known Chicago training institute for community organizers, the Midwest Academy, is in many ways the key to Barack Obama’s political rise. The Midwest Academy was closely allied to the DSA, which sponsored the Socialist Scholars conferences in New York.
Officials from the Midwest Academy network trained Obama, supplied him with funds, and got him appointed head of Illinois Project Vote. Years later, Obama sent foundation money to the Midwest Academy. Barack and Michelle Obama ran a project called “Public Allies” that was effectively an extension of the Midwest Academy. Alice Palmer, the Illinois state senator who chose Obama as her successor, was once a high official in the Midwest Academy network. Several Midwest Academy leaders advised Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.
As I detail at length in Radical-in-Chief, deceptions and glaring omissions about his radical past reach far beyond Obama’s involvement with the Socialist Scholars conferences and the Midwest Academy. [] The unknown story of Obama’s deep involvement with a radical group called UNO of Chicago is revealed.

Winter is coming!

Toronto Sun ^ | Feb 21/15 | Lorne Gunter 

Forget global warming, it’s more likely we’re on the cusp of another Little Ice Age than of a warming Armageddon. The brutal winter that has hammered the U.S. Northeast, Atlantic Canada, Ontario and Quebec could become the norm in the Northern Hemisphere for the next 30 years if a growing number of solar physicists are right.

Our sun goes through very predictable 11-year cycles. The current one began in 2008 and is expected to produce among the fewest sunspots and most diminished solar radiation of any of the 24 cycles that have been carefully recorded by scientists going back nearly three centuries.
And Cycle 25, which will “peak” in 2022, is expected to be the weakest cycle since the 17th century, when the Earth last encountered such a feeble sun, our planet was plunged into the depths of what has become known as the Little Ice Age.
The sun-climate connection makes perfect sense; far more sense than the theory that a buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is trapping solar radiation close to the Earth’s surface and dangerously warming the planet and changing our climate.
This is especially true because even according to the most devoted global-warming believers, a buildup of CO2 is not enough to trigger dangerous warming. Some other “forcing” factor is needed to push worldwide temperatures higher. But so far, no one knows with certainty what that factor might be. And given that global temperatures have not risen appreciably in 17 years, no forcing seems to be occurring.
Think about this: What makes daytime usually warmer than the night? Exposed spaces warmer than shady ones? Clear days warmer than cloudy ones and summer warmer than winter?
In every case, the answer is the sun.
The sun’s profound influence on Earth’s climate shouldn’t surprise anyone (although there are climate scientists who argue its influence is minimal). Sol has a mass more than 300,000 times that of Earth and a core temperature of around 15-million degrees Celsius.
And in galactic terms, the sun is just across the street.
Even small changes in the sun’s output are going to have profound influence on weather and crops on Earth, and on the advancement or retreat of glaciers, forests and deserts – perhaps even on trade, architecture, war, human population and the spread of disease.
A resting sun – the current downturn is being called a “solar lull” – should be of far greater concern than the chance (and it is only just a chance) that idling SUVs and flatulating cows will alter the atmosphere and, indirectly, increase the frequency and intensity of severe weather.
When we last witnessed a solar lull of similar magnitude (in the early decades of the 19th century), our planet had just finished a warming period not unlike that of the 20th century. The onset of what was known as the Dalton Minimum meant harsh, harsh winters in North America, Europe and Russia, along with some intense droughts and famines.
Some have even compared the slow cycles we are currently entering to the granddaddy of all solar lulls, the 17th century Maunder Minimum during which average Northern Hemispheric temperatures were nearly 2C below where they are now.
It seems unlikely temperatures will get as cold now as they did then, or for as long. In addition to greatly reduced solar activity, the 17th century also had more intense volcanic activity than any century since and more than any century dating back 1,000 years before it.
During the 1600s when the sun was weaker, there were also six “climatically significant eruptions” that expelled enough ash and particles to cause lower temps worldwide for a year or more – perhaps even for a decade in some cases.
Politicians and activists need to stop obsessing on manmade climate change and focus on what to do about three decades of COLD.


Fifty years ago, President Lyndon Johnson pushed the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) through Congress, a $1 billion program to help poor students and less fortunate school districts.
When he signed the bill into law on April 11, 1965, LBJ stated that he believed that “no law I have signed or will ever sign means more to the future of America.” If he meant a bleaker future, his prediction has certainly come true.
Even before the days of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, the federal government had been worming its way into the education systems of the individual states. In 1953, President Eisenhower, less than two months on the job, re-organized several agencies of the federal government into a new Cabinet department – Health, Education, and Welfare.
But it was Johnson who began a large-scale intrusion into education, an all-out effort that has not abated in half a century. And since those early days, the federal role in education has only grown, both in terms of its size and scope, as well as its cost to the American taxpayer.
From the ESEA to the Department of Education to No Child Left Behind, the new Common Core program is just the latest, and by far the worst, federal intrusion into American schools. Senator Mike Lee has rightly labeled it the “Obamacare of education,” a plan that will result in “the DC takeover of our school system. It will dumb down standards and cheapen the education our children receive.”
It will cheapen the education every American receives, no doubt, but it certainly won’t be cheap on the pocketbook of the taxpayers, if history is any indication. In the last 40 years we have seen a 375 percent increase in federal education spending with no sign Washington will stop anytime soon.

Walid Shoebat EXPOSES how Obama’s policies are part of MASTER PLAN to revive GRANDE CALIPHATE!

The Right Scoop ^ | February 21, 2015 | Walid Shoebat 

Years ago, hints on questioning Obama’s loyalty to the U.S. was considered conspiracy theory. Today Americans are becoming increasingly more suspicious struggling to find rhyme or reason for Obama’s latest Middle East policies. Rudy Giuliani seems to attribute Obama’s policies to be influenced through his affiliations with radical socialists like Frank Marshall Davis. But serious questions will prove that Obama’s policies are not different than a Muslim who supports the revival of the Muslim grand caliphate.
Was Obama influenced only by a Marxist-Leninist agenda or did he also not grow up Muslim, having learned how to recite the Muslim call to prayer in the classical Arabic tongue as he clearly admits? Can anyone even deny that Obama’s Middle East policies mimics Erdogan’s, especially when it comes to the two most powerful secular Arab states, Syria and Egypt?
Such policies stem from a Muslim mindset, not Marxist or even an American apple pie. To go against secular governments like Egypt and Syria is something ingrained in Muslim Brotherhood psyche. The history to be repeated eschatologically is the pride of Erdogan when the Ottoman SultanSelim I turned against Syria and Egypt, conquered them and ruled the Middle East.
And why is Obama, like Erdogan, aiding only Syrian rebels while both policies of Turkey and the U.S. exclude training the Kurds?
It was at the Battle of Marj Dābiq (Arabic: مرج دابق‎) as we all learned as children was the most decisive military clash in Middle Eastern history (1516 AD) near the town of Dabiq, 44 km north of Aleppo, Syria between the Ottoman Empire and the Mamluk Sultanate.
The mention of Dabiq to ISIS and Turkey reveals more than just history, but also eschatology of invading Egypt for a grand future victory for Erdogan’s ultimate dream to revive the sick man of Europe. Dabiq is reverting back the clock to when Sultan Selim I (King of the North) of the Ottomans had just pushed back and vanquished the Safavid Persians (The biblical Bear) at the Battle of Chaldiran in 1514—and turned their full might against the Mamluks, who ruled in Syria and Egypt (The biblical kingdom of the south) to complete the Ottoman conquest of the Middle East and mark their Ottoman supremacy in history.
Can anyone deny that Erdogan and Obama are setting policies in their nations that is preparing all this by reversing Sykes Picot in supporting the Arab Spring which is crippling nationalism and advancing the caliphate agenda? No Middle East analyst can deny that the United States through Obama was the key player which advanced the demolition of nationalism and advanced a caliphate agenda throughout the entire Middle East.
And can anyone deny that both Erdogan and Obama when speaking on Islam their words never go against the Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda? One might object that Obama denounces ISIS, but so does the Muslim Brotherhood. In fact, even ISIS makes fun of Obama as just another Saudi style theologian.

It is these two, Syria and Egypt, that are necessary keys to complete the mission of an Ottoman conquest of the Middle East as to repeat the glory days of Selim I. Everything in both of Obama’s and Erdogan’s policies prove it. Just this week, Obama’s aides declined to back Egypt’s military operation against ISIS and instead Obama continues to work with Erdogan, his true partner, in training the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood of Syria.
Why would the United States throw away one of its closest Arab allies in the Middle East? This should no longer be a mystery which even White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest and State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki could not adequately answer.
Is it not becoming obvious that Obama’s policies will allow a caliphate control over Libya which will turn that entire region of North Africa into the next Somalia recreating even another Barbary Pirates which will move even further to the gates of Vienna to threaten Christendom?

The caption says “The Killing Of The Christians” titled as a war and announced the players “[the war] between the followers of Sharia and the worshippers of the Cross”
You might counter that Syria is a proxy of Iran and that Obama wants to prevent Iranian expansion, but if this is true, why then is Obama looking the other way while Iran advances its nuclear program?
And you might also counter that aiding insurgents is for humanitarian reasons, but have you also considered that both, Erdogan and Obama, support the type of insurgents in Syria that holds the second hub of Muslim Brotherhood ideology after Egypt?It was Bashar Al-Assad’s father who decimated the Muslim Brotherhood in 1982 Hama Massacre one of the single deadliest acts by any Arab government against the Muslim Brotherhood in the modern Middle East.And can anyone deny that the Muslim Brotherhood revolution in Syria is being backed by the most powerful man on earth, Barack Hussein Obama?
To the American who knows little about the armed Muslim Brotherhood of Syria, he thinks that Bashar is a tyrant for simply wanting to keep his seat of power. Does Obama not know with all the advisors he has, that the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood is believed to control, through funding, one-fourth to one-third of the disparate armed rebel brigades known collectively as the Free Syrian Army (FSA)?
And if raising a Free Syrian Army was not an Islamist agenda, in other words, they were mild peppers, can anyone deny that what began with scattered supposedly moderate opposition forces were in reality Muslim Brotherhood operatives, which then became something that was later utilized by the Salafist rebel group Ahrar al Sham which was then utilized by al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra Front, which is now utilized by ISIS?
And if the military training was utilized for such an evolution, can anyone deny that the fighters, regardless of the extremist heat level on the “chart” would always end up warriors for the Caliphate.

Real American apple pie, while he could at times make stupid decisions, the moment he would realize the mistake, he would retract the policy. For example, Joe Biden, when it comes to Syria said “Our allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria,” Biden stated.“They [Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the UAE] were so determined to take down Assad,” he added, that in a sense they started a “proxy Sunni-Shia war” by pouring “hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad.”
Even though Biden was then forced to issue a retraction and an apology due to political pressure, can anyone deny that his tirade uncovered a truth that most experts and political analysts have expressed as early as 2011? If Obama was not a Muslim sympathizer, can anyone show Obama sharing more positive views on Christianity and its history in contrast to any critical views on Islam and its violent history?

Even simple observations tell us, Obama and Erdogan speak Arabic. How did they learn this language that is foreign to their nationality? And what language where they using in these private conversations?English? Erdogan speaks no English. Turkish? Obama speaks no Turkish.
Can anyone tell us what language they are speaking in private? Can anyone tell us if Obama speaks Turkish or if Erdogan speaks English? If so, why when it comes to the discussions intended for public consumption, we always find an interpreter since neither can speak a lick of the other man’s language:

Erdogan, like Obama, speaks fluent Arabic:

Erdogan, like Obama, doesn’t only know how to read and write classical Arabic, he even recites the Quran perfectly in Arabic:

And just like Obama, who recited the Muslim call to prayer.

And when it comes to Israel, fact is, there is no rift between Obama and Netanyahu, the friendship was never there from the beginning. Obama is not Apple pie to care about Israel. U.S. officials believe Netanyahu’s trip to Washington is aimed primarily at derailing a nuclear deal with Iran, Obama’s signature foreign policy objective. While Netanyahu has long been skeptical of the negotiations, his opposition has increased over what he sees as Obama’s willingness to make concessions that would leave Iran on the brink of being able to build a nuclear weapon.
Even Saudi Arabia, the Wahhabists who fear Iran, would not approve of Obama’s policies. However, Erdogan will, 100%.
As an X-Muslim, the Grand Caliphate was always the hottest discussion while sitting in the halls of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, even later in mosques in the United States where activists from all over the globe discussed plans on how to revive it. Obama is not simply a socialist or a dummy as many claim and a quick look at his direction of U.S. Foreign Policy on Islamic issues will reveal that he is meticulous and careful ensuring it fits Islam’s historical and eschatological agenda.
And if you are still in doubt, I ask: where were you during the sixties and even the eighties when we were in your learning centers discussing how the Muslim Brotherhood will influence every aspect of your system from government to education, all as a plan for a grand caliphate which is to be supported, infused and initiated right from your backyard and from within your system?
Obama is not as naive as you think in administering his policies. A Muslim in the White House is exactly where the devil wants to plant his man to prevent the most powerful nation on earth from preventing this Caliphate to rise and consume much flesh as it is attempting to do already. Obama, who speaks fluent Arabic and knows Islam quite well is no different than his friend who resides as the Sultan of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. These two are key in this master plan and whether you believe it or not, history will some day record the facts.
P.S: We usually get tremendous traffic on stories of this sort while we get very little on more serious issues on Christian persecution which will increase as we see these events unfold. For example, we operate a very effective mission in rescuing fellow Christians who literally live under slavery. We are a unique organization (Rescue Christians) who rescue Christians, perdominately in Pakistan that live under the Muslim yoke baking bricks in kilns under the heating sun. Christians too are burned in furnaces in Pakistan with no one to mourn them. To see an example out of the thousands we rescue, click here, and listen to the amazing testimonies first hand on how you can help and make a difference, now in this life and for eternity.

This Disaster

Was it fair for Giuliani to say Obama was influenced by Communists since his youth?

The Obama File ^ | 2010 | Beckwith 

Let's say a man was elected to the highest office in the land who had been mentored, during his childhood, by an avowed communist who was identified as a member of the Communist Party USA (card number 47544) by the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii, accused by the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) as being active in several communist-front organizations, and had a thick FBI file.
Let us further say that this man's guardian, his grandfather, had chosen this mentor for him, indicating that he was likely sympathetic to the mentor's beliefs.
Now, let us say that upon reaching college, this man gravitated toward Marxist professors and revolutionaries and attended the Socialist Scholars Conferences (SSC) at Cooper Union, that featured the elite of socialist academia as well as union activists, political revolutionaries, reformers, and opponents of "corporate greed."
After graduating from college, this man is tutored in the "agitation" techniques of a professional agitator, a former Jesuit priest, and a former ACLU director -- all dedicated socialists.
As a "community organizer, this man had an intimate and long-term association with ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), the largest radical group in America and the publishers of a communist manifesto entitled "ACORN's Peoples Platform" which would become this man's agenda.
While associated with ACORN, this man was a consultant and trainer to Project Vote, best know for its massive and flagrant election tampering.
Now, let's say this leader-to-be spent twenty years sitting in a black nationalist church, led by a leftist black nationalist preacher, who unabashedly preached a racist "black" gospel" based on the Marxist "Theology of Liberation" that "will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy."
The man's political career began in the living room of two communist domestic terrorists, where he was introduced to the cream of the local leftist community by his political mentor, who was a member of the U.S. Peace Council, which the FBI identified as a communist front group, an affiliate of the World Peace Council, a Soviet front group.
As part of his first run for state office, this man became a member of the New Party and sought their endorsement. The New Party's objective was to push forth the socialist principles of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).
The New Party required candidates who received the endorsement sign a pledge of support for the party that was, in effect, a front group for communists. The July issue of the New Ground noted that 15% of the New Party consisted of DSA members and a good number of members of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, a democratic socialist group in the United States which originated in 1991 as the Committees of Correspondence, a moderate, dissenting wing of the Communist Party USA.
This man also had close personal and political ties to many socialists and communists, including Timuel Black, Congressman Danny Davis, Carl Davidson, Marilyn Katz, Mike Klonsky, Saul Mendelson, Abner Mikva, Linda Rae Murray, Lou Pardo, Zach Pollet, Wade Rathke, Joel Rogers, Quentin Young, Rabbi Arnold Jacob Wolf, and DSA honorees Jackie Grimshaw, Jackie Kendall and Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, to name a few.
Now, when this man ran for national office, all of the above, which is really a snapshot of this man's activities and associations, was forgotten, ignored and buried by the media.
But once in high office this man appointed to his administration the likes of David Axelrod, Anita Dunn, Patrick Gaspard, Jeff Jones, Van Jones, Ron Bloom, Rosa Brooks, Carol Browner, Heather Higginbottom, Mark Lloyd, Hannah Rosenthal, Hilda Solis, and Cass Sunstein. -- all Marxists of one stripe or another -- and these are just some of the ones we know of.
So, here's the billion-dollar question:
What would be nuttier: to claim that this man was a life-long Marxist, or to claim that such an assertion is absurd?

Why are Americans confused about Obama's religion?

The Washington Examiner ^ | February 22, 2015 | Byron York 

"..........In June,2012, Gallup asked,"Do you happen to know the religious faith of Barack Obama?" Forty-four percent said they did not know,while 36 percent said he is a Christian, 11 percent said he is a Muslim, and eight percent said he has no religion. The "don't know" group included 36 percent of Democrats.(A larger number of Republicans, 47 percent, said they didn't know Obama's religion,as did 46 percent of independents.)........
.....Whenever the issue pops up, Obama's most ardent supporters are quick to blame conservative media for misperceptions about Obama's religion. But it's possible something in Obama's public presentation of himself has also created confusion among a significant number of Americans about his religion. The fact is, Obama's religious roots and development have always been a complicated story. In 2010, after the Pew poll came out, I wrote about the causes of public confusion about Obama and faith, particularly the belief that he is a Muslim:........."
