Beck Is an Anti-Semite: Blaze Exclusive Interview with ‘Restoring Courage’ Protesters

By: NakedEmperorNews

What a bunch of hateful idiots. Beck is truly a good man and a man of G-d. Shame on those in Israel coming out against a man who is risking it all to stand for Israel. Their hateful name calling and labels are ridiculous. These protesters are either very uninformed or just plain evil or both. Time to get right with G-d before Israel is attacked.

Muslim Brotherhood in Our White House and the Murder of SEAL Team Six

By: AJ of NoisyRoom.net & Arlen Williams
Contributors: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton & Ann Barnhardt

An investigation of President Obama and his administration must commence immediately.

Tarek Fatah, founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, author and self-described Liberal Democrat Marxist Muslim who campaigned for Barack Obama, revealed the identity of Obama’s White House appointees who have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (see Muslim Brotherhood in our White House – Vetting Obama).

Obama’s appointees could access sensitive military and National Defense information while in our White House, to include military missions that were planned for SEAL Team Six. Important questions surround the murder of 30 U.S. special operations troops, which included 17 members of Navy SEAL Team Six.

Pentagon Changes It’s Story on death of SEAL Team 6, Number of SEALs Killed Changes From 22 To 17

An investigation is fully warranted, starting with the takedown of Osama bin Laden by SEAL Team Six in May 2011, their subsequent murder on August 6, 2011 and the actions of Barack Obama and his appointees before, during and after these events.

Questions That Must Be Answered:

  • Why did Obama release the identity of SEAL Team Six as the specific team that took out Osama bin Laden?

    Never before has a sitting U.S. President done this. Releasing their identity puts a bulls-eye on their backs by providing Al Qaida, Hamas and the Taliban (terrorist groups created by the Muslim Brotherhood) with the information they need to target those specific soldiers. It also openly provided their identity to White House appointees who have alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Now all that was needed was the time and location of a future mission for SEAL Team Six in order to take them out and avenge the death of Osama bin Laden, which appears to have happened.

  • Did Obama’s appointees know, in advance, that members of SEAL Team Six would be in that chopper at that location when it was taken down by terrorists?

    If not, how is it that the terrorists were in that exact location at that exact time, fully equipped with the artillery needed to destroy the chopper and all who were on board?

  • Why were the SEALs in a standard Chinook chopper instead of the Boeing MG-47E/G (the ‘Darkhorse’ which is a SPECOPS Chinook used by SEAL Teams)?

    Through her devotion and acumen, Ann Barnhardt discovered that the chopper the SEALs and special operations (SPECOPS) troops used on that tragic day was a National Guard Chinook instead of their Darkhorse Chinook. Here is more from Ann’s blog:

    GEN. BOYKIN: NATIONAL GUARD CHINOOK INADEQUATE
    POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT – AUGUST 10, AD 2011 12:46 PM MST

    At BigPeace.com, Lt. Gen Jerry Boykin confirms that the National Guard Chinook was “inadequate” and “not designed for Special Operations missions.”

    CITATION HERE. LISTEN TO THE AUDIO.“

  • Who ordered the SEALs and SPECOPS troops to use the National Guard Chinook?

    From President Obama to Leon Panetta to Hillary Clinton and on down the chain of command, an investigation must find the answer to this question to determine who ordered the troops to conduct their mission in a standard Chinook instead of the Darkhorse SPECOPS Chinook.

  • After the SEALs and SPECOPS troops were murdered, why did Obama release that information to the public?

    Never before has a sitting U.S. President done this. Informing America’s enemies that we have lost our most well trained elite force of SEAL Team Six soldiers and SPECOPS troops provides a direct signal of vulnerability and weakness in America’s military capabilities. It would be difficult to imagine that Obama would not realize the emboldening of America’s enemies that this would cause, to the direct endangerment of the precious lives of our armed forces.

    And that is exactly what has happened – Al Qaida is emboldened. The Associated Press (AP) reported on Saturday:

    “BAGHDAD (AP) — Al-Qaida in Iraq has vowed to carry out “100 attacks” across the country, starting in the middle of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, to exact revenge for the death of Osama bin Laden…

    Monday marked the middle of Ramadan.

    On that day, a wave of crushing attacks swept across Iraq — from the northern city of Mosul to the southern Shiite heartland. At least 70 people died in suicide bombings, roadside bombs and shootings in what was Iraq’s deadliest day this year.”

Obama’s Outreach to the Muslim Brotherhood:

Cozying up to known terrorist leaders who say they want to destroy America and doing their bidding by going against America’s closest allies because they are targets of these terrorists is dangerous. The Muslim Brotherhood has stated plainly that they seek to destroy “little Satan” (Israel) and “big Satan” (America). Obama’s actions with regard to the Muslim Brotherhood and those who have ties to these terrorists is beyond comprehension. In the article, “Palling Around with Terrorists,” the following was noted – with links that provide the details:

“Obama and Hillary Clinton are reaching out to the Muslim Brotherhood, a radical Islamic fundamentalist group committed to the destruction of America, Britain and Israel and identified as a terrorist organization by the U.S.

Obama puts Israel on a list of countries that support terrorism while he supports the Hamas-ruled region of Gaza.

Obama began talks with the Taliban to negotiate with these terrorists.”

Now we learn more…

Other Facts Regarding Obama’s Perplexing Actions:

Obama called for Israel to return to the 1967 borders on May 19, 2011, knowing full well that Israel will be unable to protect their people from annihilation with those indefensible borders. Yet when he campaigned for the Presidency, Obama said on June 4, 2008, that he would stand with Israel if he were elected President.

Pro-Israel Highlights of Barack Obama Speech for AIPAC

Obama Calls On Israelis And Palestinians To Use 1967 Borders

Obama is bringing tens of thousands of Muslim illegals to America from Somalia (they are called “refugees”).

Beware, Muslims building more mosques in the Bible belt of America

Obama bowed to the Saudi King, something no U.S. President has ever done.

Obama Bows to Saudi King

Conclusion:

It must be determined whether Obama’s actions and the people with whom he surrounds himself compromised our SEAL Team Six and SPECOPS troops. The fact that Obama brings individuals into our White House who are allegedly associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, coupled with the other actions he has taken, screams for an investigation into the murder of our beloved Navy SEALs and SPECOPS troops.

The American people must demand it and Congress must carry out this investigation immediately.

Congress-Commissioned Communist-Created Statue to Honor M.L. King

Gulag Bound
By: Cliff Kincaid
USA Survival News

With President Obama preparing to preside over the official unveiling of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, the last thing the administration needs is a controversy over the “Made in China” label for the 30-foot structure. But the shocking truth, known for many years, is beginning to be picked up by some media outlets as the special event approaches. The project in honor of the American civil rights figure was “outsourced” to Lei Yixin, a Chinese government-approved sculptor best known for creating edifices glorifying Mao Tse-Tung, father of Communist China and notorious mass-murderer.

The 4 acres of land for the memorial were granted by Congress and $10 million of the $120 million cost came from U.S. taxpayers.  A law authorizing the memorial was signed by President Clinton in 1996. Ironically, the $10 million in federal funding was in a 2005 appropriations amendment co-sponsored by Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-WV), a former member of the Ku Klux Klan.

Communist sculptor and King statue

On Sunday, August 28, 2011, the 48th anniversary of King’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech, Obama will deliver remarks at the memorial dedication on the National Mall.  The White House says the memorial “will commemorate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his contributions to world peace through non-violent social change.”

Mao, in a 1968 official Chinese government pamphlet, declared that King had been “assassinated by the U.S. imperialists” and that they had “killed him in cold blood.”

These statements were featured in a published “Statement by Comrade Mao Tse-Tung, chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, In support of the Afro-American Struggle Against Violent Repression.”

“So this is what we’ve come to. Our national memorials are now being made in China,”commented one blogger. The London Telegraph said, “Critics have openly asked why a black, or at least an American, artist was not chosen and even remarked that Dr. King appears slightly Asian in Mr. Lei’s rendering.” Other observers agreed, with one noting, “King looks half Chinese in the sculpture. 1000 years from now that is what people will think.”

On Monday’s “NBC Nightly News,” however, anchor Brian Williams aired a “Lasting Legacy” story about the opening of the monument to the public without mention of any controversy. The omission may have something to do with the fact that NBC Universal was one of the financial contributors to the memorial. Other contributors include CBS and the government of South Africa.

Many public and political figures and business executives provided the leadership for the process of building a national memorial honoring King. A “Donor’s Wall” will recognize “high level” ($1,000,000 and above) donors.

But sculpter Gilbert Young, a world renowned black artist known for African American art, had formed a group, When King Is Ours, which was designed, in his words, to protest “the appointment of a communist Chinese artist, famous for glorifying the mass murderer Mao Zedong,” to do the King monument. He also complained that the project was using slave labor.

Chinese human rights activist Harry Wu, who spent 19 years in a Chinese prison, protested the choice, while Ann Lau, chair of the Visual Artists Guild, said, “Lei’s selection is as inappropriate as to have hired Leni Riefenstahl, the notorious Nazi propagandist film director, to direct a film biography of Simon Wiesenthal,” the Nazi hunter.

A petition launched by Young declared, “The planned monument to our beloved Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has been awarded to an artist from a country with a reprehensible history of civil rights violations against its people. The granite to be used for King’s sculpture will be harvested using slave labor–Chinese workers are not even provided masks to protect their lungs from the silica dust. They die in droves because the Chinese government considers them just as important as the students who protested in Tiananmen Square. The world watched the tanks roll over them.  No human rights, No civil rights, and yet the honor of sculpting Dr. Martin Luther King? Not on our watch.”

The petition declared, “King is OUR national treasure. We will not have an artist famous for his statues of the murderer Mao Tse Tung, and tool of a government that labeled King a ‘reactionary running dog,’ sculpting the King Monument.  Would we allow an artist famous for his statues of Hitler to sculpt Ann Frank?  Combine these facts with another: There is not ONE national monument to a leader of any country anywhere on this planet with the name of an African American artist on its base. We protest. And we demand the right to interpret and present our own historic proclamation in this first ever national monument to an African American man.”

In a plea to potential sponsors of the memorial, Young said, “Here was the opportunity for a national monument to a Black man in Washington D.C., to be created, developed, designed, and executed by the best that African America arts and culture and development has to offer, a testament to all our own achievements as Black people who benefited from the Civil Rights Movement.”

The California NAACP in 2007 passed a resolution declaring, in part:

“Whereas, The Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation has chosen to outsource the production of the monument to Dr. King to the People’s Republic of China, the country with the worst record of human rights violations and civil rights abuses in the world, which is an affront to the ideal of human dignity…

“Whereas, The Foundation has chosen to employ as Artist-of-Record, Lei Yixin, an artist from the People’s Republic of China, who is renowned for his many sculptures and busts glorifying Mao Zedong, murder of 70 million innocent Chinese, which is in direct opposition to Dr. King’s philosophy and to the ideal of positive social change throughout the world…

“Be it finally resolved, that the California State Conference of the NAACP demands that the King Memorial Project Foundation name an African American artistic team as Artists-of-Record for the monument to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and that an oversight committee be created to enforce these resolutions.”

In Vermont, a major source of U.S. granite, granite manufacturers and labor unions condemned the decision to allow the monument to be created using stone quarried and carved in China by laborers working in deadly conditions for wages that amount to less than $2 per day.

According to one report, “Vermont’s congressional delegation — Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy, independent Sen. Bernard Sanders and Democratic Rep. Peter Welch — wrote to Harry Johnson Sr., the president and chief executive officer of the [Washington, DC Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation, Inc.] in 2007 pressing him to use American granite instead of imported stone because ‘this great American monument should be built with American products.’”

Sanders settled for a pledge to use American products in other parts of the memorial.

The U.S. Commission of Fine Arts “found that the colossal scale and Social Realist style of the proposed statue recalls a genre of political sculpture that has recently been pulled down in other countries,” noted Thomas E. Luebke, commission secretary. The term “socialist realism” refers to a form of “art” first introduced in the Soviet Union that was used for propaganda purposes and to highlight communist leaders as heroic.

The King sculpture is 30 feet tall and shows him in a confrontational pose, with his arms crossed.

However, Jesse Jackson, a former aide to King, and members of the Congressional Black Caucus were given a special tour of the memorial and they have expressed no public criticism of the project.  Jackson will be speaking at the ceremony on Sunday.

An indication of what Jackson may say came in a recent interview on MSNBC, where he saidthat King would be “very mindful of the foes of President Obama, those that in fact attack him relentlessly, as he used his powers to stop the hemorrhaging of 100,000 jobs a month.” Jackson also claimed that King would be a champion of homosexual rights.

Executive Orders: Social Justice Executive Order Just Issued

Gulag Bound
By: Maggie M. Thornton
Maggie’s Notebook

UPDATED – SEE BELOW. The Obama administration calls it the ‘diversity’ Executive Order, and while the EO itself doesn’t really define ‘diversity,’ we know what it means. It means Social Justice for anyone not White. How many years have we had Affirmative Action? The EO gives us another ‘council’ (think Super Committee, or ‘council’ as in Obama’s Agenda 21 Council known as the White House Rural Council). The ‘council’ will get it all worked out and let us know what ‘divesity’ in the case really means. See some stats below.

EXECUTIVE ORDER

ESTABLISHING A COORDINATED GOVERNMENT-WIDE INITIATIVE TO PROMOTE DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION IN THE FEDERAL WORKFORCE

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to promote the Federal workplace as a model of equal opportunity, diversity, and inclusion, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Business Insider:

It’s about time, too.  According to the Federal Office of Personnel Management, minorities represent only 38.8 percent of the federal workforce and a mere 43.9 percent of the federal workforce is female.

It’s a national disgrace, but hopefully, this bold act of leadership will start to right the wrongs.  After all, if the EEOC has the courage to fight for the rights of dwarfs who can’t see over the counter at Starbucks, surely the Federal Government can ensure that there are more people of color answering the phones at the IRS.

Never mind that in 2010, 63.7% of the U.S. were White (and decreasing hourly), but if we get lucky we might have…what…50% of the jobs? (Update 8-22-11: just found the 2010 U.S. Census figures here, confirming the chart below)

RACE NUMBER PERCENTAGE
White alone
(of which 26.7 million are White Hispanic and Latino Americans, see table below.
Excluding these, this category comprises 63.7% or 196.8 million)
223,553,265 72.4%
Black or African American alone 38,929,319 12.6%
Some other race alone
(MestizoMulatto…)
19,107,368 6.2%
Asian alone 14,674,252 4.8%
Two or more races 9,009,073 2.9%
American Indian or Alaska Native alone 2,932,248 0.9%
Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander alone 540,013 0.2%
Total 308,745,538 100.0%

Considering who pays taxes or should (those who work, or should), in 2004, 83% of all income taxes paid-in came from White taxpayers; Blacks 13%, Hispanics 10%, Asians 3.6%. That means 40% of taxpayers, even if they are zero-tax-filers, are other than White. If you think it isn’t relevant that Whites pay 83% of all taxes, even though we are only 63.7% of the population, including children who pay no taxes, (meaning White taxpayers number less than 63.7% considerably), then you likely approve of Social Justice.

Bunkerville is also talking about the Social Justice Executive Order, one for the EPA and one that freezes Syrian assets. I had a conversation with B-ville in comments. About the Social Justice EO I said:

These Executive Orders are a good piece of work for TEA parties and individuals sitting at home. We need to find someone to introduce legislation, not banning them, but defining what an Executive Order cannot do – for instance, override something congress has done or has chosen not to do.

The “diversity” order doesn’t really define diversity, so this gives all those Blacks in the DOJ the right to continue what they have already done – make decisions about not prosecuting voter intimidation and maybe voter fraud, if the offender is Black. It’s called social justice.

And about freezing Syrian assets, B-ville said this:

It just occured to me, since when does an Executive order ” freezes the assets of the Syrian government in the U.S., imposes sanctions on the import of Syrian oil and forbids American investment there. Does not require an act of Congress????

UPDATE 8-23-11:  I have found records from the Office of Personnel Management that gives the ethnic and gender percentages in federal hiring for fiscal 2010 (ending September 30, 2010).

Findings for FY 2010
The Federal workforce is 17.7 percent Black, 8.0 percent Hispanic, 5.6 percent Asian/Pacific
Islander, 1.8 percent Native American, 0.7 percent non-Hispanic/Multi-racial, and 66.2 percent
White.  Minorities as a whole constituted 33.8 percent of the FW.  Men comprised 56.1 percent
of all Federal permanent employees and women 43.9 percent.
Progress has been made with respect to the representation of women and minorities at higher
pay level positions in the FW.  The number of women in Senior Pay levels increased by 7.9
percent (from 6,341 to 6,839).  Minority employees in Senior Pay levels increased by 9.4
percent (from 3,709 to 4,059).
The Report shows the representation of women and minorities in professional and
administrative positions has also increased.  The representation rate of minorities in these
positions rose by 7.4 percent (from 332,934 to 357,468).  The number of women represented in
professional and administrative positions increased by 5.1 percent (from 505,111 to 531,062).

So why do we need an Executive Order, unless it is to make Obama look like he is doing something about jobs. Perhaps this is his jobs program. I’m thinking this Executive Order will be a pillar in Obama’s ‘jobs plan.’ I also think Congresswoman Maxine Waters told Obama to get his diversity on.
