Informed Americans are aware that Janet Napolitano has left us a legacy of transformation we never thought possible on US soil. We do not mistake as fact the lies – and lies-of-omission – from the mainstream propaganda media. We know what she has done. Americans who love this country are deemed “terrorists” and, since Islamic terrorists no longer exist – only man-caused disasters – there is no need to seek out these non-existent terrorists before they attack us.
In short, Napolitano’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS), comprised of 16 agencies, set their sights solidly on law abiding American citizens. In addition, internal processes have been put in place to coordinate with other Executive Branch departments (e.g. IRS, NSA, ATF, DOJ, FBI) to ensure big-government’s ability to effectively and directly impede, impact, invade, oppress and diminish American citizens.
Those who know history can see where Napolitano has taken us.
The Denver Post, on February 15th, ran an Associated Press article entitled Homeland Security aims to buy 1.6b rounds of ammo, so far with little notice. It confirmed that the Department of Homeland Security has issued an open purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. As reported elsewhere, some of this purchase order is for hollow-point rounds, forbidden by international law for use in war, along with a frightening amount specialized for snipers. Also reported elsewhere, at the height of the Iraq War the Army was expending less than 6 million rounds a month. Therefore 1.6 billion rounds would be enough to sustain a hot war for 20+ years in America.
Add to this perplexing outré purchase of ammo, DHS now is showing off its acquisition of heavily armored personnel carriers, repatriated from the Iraqi and Afghani theaters of operation.
We’re well aware of what the TSA is doing to Americans – young, old and anyone in between.
What about the far-reaching and well coordinated effort against ‘True The Vote?’ Coincidence? No.
With traitorous politicians like Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and John McCain (R-AZ) declaring America a battlefield, these Progressive Republicans join with the Democrat Party’s mission to implement a totalitarian-style rule over the American people. The DHS, with their unlimited reach, is there to deliver.
Bob Adelmann at New American describes one of Napolitano’s first documented actions as Secretary of the DHS. Note that Napolitano’s public apologies came easily after this DHS report was revealed, but the mission of the DHS remained the same – target Americans.
The DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has no specific information that domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment…
The consequences of a prolonged economic downturn — including real estate foreclosures, unemployment, and an inability to obtain credit — could create a fertile recruiting environment for rightwing extremists and even result in confrontations between such groups and government authorities similar to those in the past.
The report referred to various “conspiracy theories” that might put the country at risk, along with a porous Mexican border:
Historically, domestic rightwing extremists have feared, predicted, and anticipated a cataclysmic economic collapse in the United States. Prominent anti government conspiracy theorists have incorporated aspects of an impending economic collapse to intensify fear and paranoia among like-minded individuals and to attract recruits during times of economic uncertainty…
DHS/I&A assesses that rightwing extremist groups’ frustration over a perceived lack of government action on illegal immigration has the potential to incite individuals or small groups toward violence.
When challenged about those “findings,” Napolitano was forced to make numerous apologies and her department admitted to a “breakdown in internal processes” in creating the report.
During Napolitano’s reign, criminals and terrorists were ignored, excused and even protected.
Russia warned the US of the Boston Marathon terrorist and, as we know, the Fort Hood terrorist advertised his intentions openly and unapologetically. Where was Napolitano’s DHS while these terrorists were free to plan and carry out Jihad against Americans?
Perhaps most egregious was the fact that the DHS had no idea who the Boston Marathon terrorists were and the FBI eventually had to ask the American people for help to identify them.
With a trillion-dollar annual budget and a decade of full access to everything, what we’ve seen under Napolitano’s command for the past 4+ years demonstrates no intention of “keeping us safe.”
Ordinary citizens – the ones who pay for the massive, bloated and oppressive DHS – are the ones thwarting terrorist attacks and/or enduring the consequences of them.
The Underwear terrorist was taken down by the people on the flight, not the DHS or law enforcement or any other government agency. The terrorist at the recruiting office carried out his Jihad and the Time-Square terrorist failed because of his own incompetence… and it was an American citizen who alerted authorities to the bomb. The DHS didn’t have a clue.
Under Napolitano’s reign, the DHS, in coordination with other agencies, aid and abet the free-flow of foreigners invading our country through the Southern border. DHS isn’t just failing to enforce laws – they are actively protecting the criminals who are violating our laws. And anyone who attempts to enforce our laws is targeted (e.g. Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio).
Hezbollah also enters illegally through our Southern border. If we, ordinary citizens, know about this, surely the DHS “saw news reports” and are aware of it too.
No doubt Napolitano’s DHS turned their sights onto the American people in ways many of us never thought we would see in our lifetime – ever. Not in America. But it’s here and it’s done. The Constitution, Bill of Rights and our Natural Rights have been shredded and usurped. This is Napolitano’s legacy… one that we and future generations will be forced to endure as the chains of bondage tighten. …Unless we can take back our country.
Mark Levin has a plan and if you want liberty back, I suggest listening to his daily radio program at www.marklevinshow.com or his Podcasts. He started discussing the plan briefly on July 10, 2013.
Let’s face it… everything we’re doing up to now has not stopped this oppressive regime. It’s time to add something new to our current efforts… a way that our Founders gave us to stand against this kind of tyranny.
Other big-government agencies summed up in about 1 minute:
After The Journal News gave rapists, thieves and murderers a road map of the homes these criminals can target, they hired armed guards.
The Journal News published the names and addresses of residents in New York’s Westchester, Rockland and Putnam Counties who have pistol permits, thereby letting criminals know which homes to avoid… and which to target.
They did this to further their anti-2nd Amendment agenda. Now, in a stunning display of hypocrisy, they want guns around themselves for protection.
Their claim of receiving threatening messages was put to rest by the police who, after investigating, found no threats were made.
Many either don’t know what the “fiscal cliff” is, or believe this problem is something that it’s not.
Although America ’s economic crisis is not rocket science, the media and politicians have done a good job of keeping the truth hidden so that our focus isn’t on the real problem. After all, if we, the people, understood the real problem, we would demand that they fix it and we are smart enough to know the real fix that’s needed.
To prevent this from happening, politicians and media conjured up this catchy phrase called “the fiscal cliff.” Then they established a narrative that gave us a false target to blame – the so-called “rich.”
In other words, keeping the people’s attention on class warfare directs our anger and rhetoric onto the false target they’ve fed us and off of ‘what’ and ‘who’ created the problem in the first place. This distracts us from formulating and voicing the real solution to the true problem.
So, what is the real problem that created this crisis?
In a nut shell, our elected politicians have continued to spend trillions more in the past four years than taxpayers have given them. Thus, they have brought America ’s economy to the point of near collapse. It’s that simple.
Three of the broader consequences of what they’ve done are:
For the first time in the history of our nation, America ’s credit rating has been downgraded – twice.
Our national debt now exceeds its yearly gross domestic product (GDP).
The value of the dollar continues to decline, which makes prices rise on the things we need and want (i.e. inflation).
“…raise the tax rates on family income over $450,000 and individual income over $400,000 from 35 percent to 39.6 percent, the same level as under former President Bill Clinton. Also, estates would be taxed at 40 percent after the first $5 million for an individual and $10 million for a couple, up from 35 percent to 40 percent. Unemployment benefits would be extended for one year.”
While politicians and media are in lock-step focusing everyone’s attention on whom the government can take more money from, who realizes that this simply allows the politicians to continue to spend trillions more at our expense?
Taking more money from the people will result in less growth of the economy, which leads to greater loss of jobs, which leads to increasing the number of people plunged into poverty.
For those buying into the class warfare narrative, know that you are supporting your own demise. How so? The trickle down effect most people don’t realize is that, whether you’re a car mechanic, a retailer, a construction worker, a car dealership, a waiter, a grocery store cashier, etc., these businesses are negatively impacted when customers have less money to spend; therefore, employers will have less income with which to pay employees. Jobs will be eliminated and some businesses will have to shut down altogether.
It’s not rocket science, it is economic reality.
So let’s cut through the political spin, false narratives and diversions and give you the simple truth about the economic crisis and the real solution, which can be found in a “real world” example of what people have to do when they’ve created this same kind of financial mess for themselves.
This might be a helpful way to explain it to family and friends who aren’t aware.
We already know that when a person, family or business continues to spend a lot more than they take in, eventually they find themselves in pretty serious financial trouble. Why? Because they’ve amassed an unsustainable amount of debt that they cannot realistically repay. (Same goes for a country, and that’s exactly what our politicians have done.)
Think of a family that takes home $50,000 a year. If they spend 25% more than they take in each year (say they’re spending $62,500 each year even though they only bring home $50,000 a year), after four years, they’ve accumulated $50,000 in new debt, plus interest, which they owe to creditors.
What happens to this family? Interest on the debt continues to accrue, their FICO score (credit rating) declines and their creditors warn that action will be taken against them to recover what is owed.
The family now has to solve the financial mess they created for themselves.
If they’re serious about solving the problem, what’s one of the first things they have to do? Cut spending.
In addition to cutting their spending down to what they take in ($50K/year), they’ll cut even more spending so they can begin to pay off the debt and interest they racked up.
In most cases, when creditors start receiving regular monthly payments on the debt, things will stabilize as long as the family continues to pay. It becomes apparent to creditors that the family has created a budget that reduces spending and frees up money to start paying down their debt.
When we look at the typical things this family will cut, first to go are luxury purchases, trips, gifts, costly entertainment/hobbies, sending money overseas… basically, non-essentials that they couldn’t afford to be spending on in the first place. Next might be things like having meals at home instead of eating out at restaurants, sack lunches for the kids instead of the daily school cafeteria expense, trading in the fancier car for one that’s half the cost, driving less, using less in utilities, etc.
If that’s not enough, they may start selling non-essential possessions/assets to raise more cash to pay toward their debt. Taking on another job would be good, but in this Obama-economy it’s probably not a realistic possibility. Some families may even need to downsize their residence; move to a two-bedroom apartment instead of maintaining the cost of the four-bedroom home they’ve been renting.
But politicians refuse to cut spending. They want to continue spending trillions more than they take from us each year.
What is their solution?
Create a faux fight over how much MORE they will take from us so they can keep over-spending.
Keep spinning it as class warfare to give us a false ‘target’ to blame.
Keep us fighting among ourselves as we get behind one of the political party’s ‘plans’ (so that we’re actually rooting for their solutions to take MORE from hard-working taxpayers).
Divert our attention away from the real problem and the politicians who actually created the problem.
Remain blind to the fact that politicians want to perpetuate the problem, not solve it.
Insidiously brilliant, isn’t it? It is masterful propaganda and it’s what they always do.
Investopedia explains what will happen if politicians don’t act, but don’t forget that all the ‘expirations,’ sequestration and triggers were put in place/enacted by them.
“If Congress and President Obama do not act to avert this perfect storm of legislative changes, America will, in the media’s terms, “fall over the cliff.” Among other things, it will mean a tax increase the size of which has not been seen by Americans in 60 years.”
So you see, it is our elected politicians who set the stage for this crisis in order to dupe the American people and carry out the political theater now on display so they can get away with taking more from taxpayers, continue the massive over-spending and avert the possibility of torches and pitchforks outside the Capitol.
When these politicians conclude this round of theater, American’s will unwittingly breathe a sigh of relief that they reached a ‘deal’ and saved us.
In reality, the cold hard truth is that we, the taxpayers, continue to serve at the feet of these politicians. As long as they can take more from us – and they surely can – that’s exactly what they’ll continue to do until we have no more for them to take.
The truth about the fiscal cliff, in simple terms, is that the President and Congress deliberately created the economic crisis our country faces. Their massive spending is intentional and, clearly, it hasn’t helped us; it has hurt us. Their intention all along was to continue to take more and more from the people, thereby increasing their power and wealth – and extinguishing ours. How better to expand the ranks of the poor, further de-industrialize America and destroy, from within, a once-great and prosperous nation?
After all, isn’t that what the Progressives’ hundred-year journey to institute “social justice” in America, from both sides of the aisle, has been all about? Of course it has.
Tyranny comes when the people of a nation can no longer do what they did when they were free. Are we there yet?
France’s budget deficit is approximately 85 billion euro and the tax would have brought in only about 200 million euro… a tiny drop in a very large bucket. But as we know, bloated Socialist governments know no bounds when it comes to satisfying their insatiable greed and intense desire to enslave the people.
Unemployment in France has risen for 19 straight months and embattled President Hollande’s popularity continues its downward spiral. Why? The people are feeling the effects of his Socialist policies.
France’s continuous rise in unemployment was predictable; the laws of economics are well-known.
Socialist thinkers, however, do not have the mental ability to understand economics. They are takers and all they understand is greed and power. Take from those who have until they have no more. That’s it.
With Socialism, the goal is always to impoverish the people and place all the wealth in the hands of the rulers – the government – the elites. Destruction of the “middle class” is essential for Socialism to flourish.
Isn’t it ironic that Hollande’s “tax the rich” campaign platform was enough to get him elected, but now the people are feeling the effects and they are unhappy. France, like America, obviously doesn’t teach economics in public/government schools.
But it’s more than that… so many people inexplicably think that taxing the rich means more money for them or more money for the poor. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Just as France’s “tax the rich” scheme has caused sustained job losses among the people, the same has played out in other Socialist countries like Italy, Greece and Britain.
While more people are plunged into poverty, the bloated, life-sucking thieves in government live in the lap of luxury and enrich themselves and their pals by taking more and more from the people.
This is playing out in America as well.
Taking from the “rich” enables governments to slide the scale downward. Today, $250,000 is considered rich (try living in New York or California on that) and tomorrow, $150,000 will be. The scale will continue downward until YOU are considered rich.
That’s right… they’re coming after YOU, as all Socialist governments do. After all, you didn’t build that. It belongs to the government and their objective is to take it from you.
Meanwhile, the people who inexplicably and mistakenly think that taxing the rich gives more to ‘the people,’ refuse to actually look at the increased poverty it brings. As they regurgitate the catchy phrases the media and politicians feed them about ‘leveling the playing field’ and ‘fairness,’ they won’t even look at where people’s hard-earned money is really going. Instead, like mindless minions, they want more taken from them – the people – to feed the government Leviathan.
The government itself and everything they spend money on comes from us, the 53% of Americans who pay taxes. The mindless minions who regurgitate the “tax the rich” mantra need to explain how items such as these benefit the people:
You can find your own examples of outrageous government spending that does nothing to help us, the people. There are plenty to choose from.
For the four items delineated above, there’s about half a trillion dollars alone. How do any of these things help the people? Since Obamacare is included, some readers might be stuck on that one. Let’s explain.
One may think Obamacare helps the people, but they fail to understand that it will hurt everyone; especially low-income families and seniors.
If the complaint before Obamacare was the high cost of healthcare, the cost has now increased tremendously, so how does that help anyone? Have your premiums increased? Is your old plan no longer available?
Did you know that low-income families used to receive free medical care at any hospital they chose to go to? As mandated by the government long ago, no one could be turned away. Now these families will be pursued by government and required to pay for health coverage. What do you think all the extra IRS employees are for?
As for seniors, ‘take a pill’ as Obama famously said. $1.1 trillion is being stolen from Medicare – which all taxpayers pay into – to feed the Obamacare government beast. Even a fifth grader can figure out that this will greatly diminish care for our seniors. Why else do they need the ‘end of life’ counseling every year and why is there now a committee of 15 unelected government bureaucrats who decide what care people will and won’t receive?
Don’t forget, Obamacare merely mandates that everyone purchase health coverage. It is health coverage, not care, for all. The transformation of America’s free-market healthcare system into a government-controlled socialized healthcare system will severely degrade health care, just as it has in other countries.
Why do you think foreign leaders and people with financial means have come to America for serious treatment? In a few short years, there will be no where for them, or us, to go.
Again, the objective of Socialism is to take from the people to redistribute to themselves and increase their power over the people. Taking over our healthcare system increases the number of people they can take from and have power over; it was never about giving “healthcare for all.” It’s about forcing everyone but themselves to pony up for coverage. But I digress…
Greed and power are must-haves among Socialist rulers/elites. France’s President Hollande is one example among many.
Regarding the mindless “tax the rich” minions, they clearly have not thought it through, they have not educated themselves, they know little about history and they cast their votes for these oppressors. All the while, they unwittingly call for these elites to be further enriched off the backs of the people.
Will these mindless minions think it through before it’s at their doorstep and they are added to the ranks of the poor? Doubt it.
If you live in New York’s Westchester and Rockland counties, The Journal News gave rapists, thieves and murderers the best Christmas present they could ever hope for… a roadmap of the homes they should avoid and those which they can target without fear.
The Journal News decided to aid and abet criminals by publishing the names and addresses of hundreds of law abiding citizens who have a legal permit for a gun.
A criminal’s worst nightmare is being confronted by a would-be victim who has the means to protect themselves and their family. The criminal’s intention is to commit their crime and get away with it. Clear-thinking people know this.
Think of all the homes you’ve seen with a “Beware of Dog” sign. Property owners post a sign like this to deter criminals by letting them know of the violent force they’ll encounter should they attempt to enter the property. Home security systems are another method of protection used by millions of families to deter criminals.
Thanks to The Journal News, criminals now know the addresses of those who may confront them with a gun. But most importantly, the published list lets them know the homes where they will NOT be confronted with a gun, thereby further increasing the chance of their success in committing the intended crime.
An attack dog, security system or gun owner presents more resistance and, until now, criminals could only hope their victims didn’t have a gun.
However, in Westchester and Rockland counties, criminals now know which homes present the least resistance.
Just as mass murderers choose “Gun Free Zones,” criminals who seek to rape, steal, murder, kidnap, etc. choose people and places they believe will present the least resistance. The Journal News gave criminals a big assist.
It’s time to inform the media and politicians that criminals commit crimes – duh! They break the law and that’s why they’re called criminals. A crime is an act or the commission of an act that is forbidden by a public law.
The sickening display of politicians and news/print media trying to advance their oppressive agenda plays out with their targets – the ‘useful idiots’ in our society who lack the ability to think clearly or to use logic and reason.
Spurred by the Newtown massacre, The Journal News decided to aide and abet criminals.
They claim they submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to obtain the names and addresses of gun owners. Since when is a request made and then fulfilled by any government agency, within 5 working days?
Collusion by news/print media and the government is rampant in our country, as is illustrated by what’s been done here.
The Journal News and the government agency that provided them with the names and addresses need to be held responsible for telling rapists, thieves and murderers which homes to target in Westchester and Rockland counties.
Update: In a tweet from Stuart – @Ringo6, we were informed that “Dwight Worley is the reporter who wrote the article giving out info on gunowners in NY and CT.” Dwight’s phone number is: 718.527.0832.
Noisyroom reader Geo informed us that Putnam County, NY is also included in the article’s map. In addition, Geo says, “The article noted that the columnist was a licensed Hand Gun owner, but conveniently, left out of the article HIS home address. How nice!”
In light of the recent massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, we learn today that, “The Newtown school gunman’s mother was so angry at education chiefs for failing her son, she thought ‘screw them’ and refused to stop dealing with them anymore, a relative has claimed. Nancy Lanza pleaded for better services for her disturbed son Adam, but was apparently rebuffed so many times, she took it upon herself to home school him.”
One can imagine there isn’t a Special Education Director who isn’t wondering if they could do more to identify students with mental health disorders. In fact, there are some who know they can do more – *and the law requires them to do it. However, the administrative apparatus of the public school system is managed in a way that restricts access to the supports and services needed by children with mental illness or disabilities.
Too often, pressure from school Superintendents require Special Education Directors to reduce their budgets, thus leaving Directors no choice but to purposely deny eligibility, interventions, appropriate services and/or supports to children who need them. In essence, school districts claim these children are fine or they’re “cured” because they really don’t need interventions or services despite clear warning signs that something’s very wrong.
Adam Lanza was no exception. Educational professionals report they saw Adam Lanza’s problems as early as 9th grade. At Newtown High School, he was often having episodes and the protocol used by the school was to call his mother, Nancy Lanza, and have her come in to diffuse each crisis.
The head of security for the school district at the time, Richard Novia, told AP reporter Adam Geller, “He would have an episode and she’d have to return or come to the high school and deal with it.”
While Nancy Lanza suffered in silence and rarely spoke of the seriousness of Adam’s problems, the indicators of her son’s severe mental illness were there. Nancy Lanza’s friends knew Adam had switched schools more than once and that Nancy tried home schooling him.
John Tambascio said, “I always said that I wouldn’t want to be in her shoes. But I thought, “Wow. She holds it well.”” Russell Hanoman said Adam was “clearly a troubled child.” Ryan Kraft, who babysat Adam when he was younger, said, “His mom Nancy had always instructed me to keep an eye on him at all times, never turn my back or even go to the bathroom or anything like that. Which I found odd, but I really didn’t ask; it wasn’t any of my business.”
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) includes a legal mandate requiring school districts, under the “Child Find” provision, to seek out and find children who exhibit significant problems at school, to include developmental and functional problems; not just academic problems. Most parents aren’t aware of this and the media and politicians won’t tell you about it, but all school districts know.
Under IDEA, anyone concerned about an individual can refer the student, confidentially, to the school district for assessment.
Usually, it is a teacher who refers a student for assessment. Unfortunately, due to the nationwide “budget constraint” mantra from the educational system, we are told that teachers are discouraged by their districts in the referral of students with suspected disorders and that “it’s a big waste of time as districts take no forward motion” according to one teacher who has asked to remain anonymous.
Did Lanza’s school district follow the Child Find law? Did they refer him for a psycho-educational assessment and provide the interventions and services needed? As we now know, they did not.
You may wonder, “Why at school?” Children with mental illness or disabilities experience the majority of their difficulties within and because of school. The random, unpredictable and social dynamics and demands of all school campuses generally intensify the manifestations of a child’s disorder.
Their inability to properly navigate the school environment is the first warning sign that, without proper interventions and supports, they will be unable to navigate in the real world when they reach adulthood.
Unfortunately for parents, their distraught and possibly violent child is often denied an assessment by the school district or, if given an assessment, they’re denied Special Education eligibility and/or appropriate supports and services, especially if the child is demonstrating “adequate academic progress.” Parents are often pleading and begging for help from the school.
This is where school districts misinterpret the law. Clearly, IDEA legislation requires that students who demonstrate issues of functional, social, and/or emotional development are to be assessed and the needed interventions, supports and services must be provided.
If Adam Lanza’s school district had followed the law, they would have requested Nancy Lanza’s consent to conduct a psycho-educational assessment in all areas of suspected disability, which includes mental health, in order to get to the bottom of his mental illness, thus enabling them to determine the interventions and services he needed (to include institutionalization if necessary). In addition, he would have been closely monitored via an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
Adam Lanza’s problems were no secret; his brother told reporters that Adam suffered from a “personality disorder” (the clinical term is usually “sociopath” or “psychopath”). Adam Lanza’s mental illness was evident and Nancy Lanza’s problems with the school district have been reported.
Ask yourself… could things have been different if the school district had followed the law just a few short years ago? Would it have revealed the severity of his mental illness? Would interventions have been provided that may have prevented the murder of 27 innocents? We’ll never know the real answer to that question now.
But we do know his mother, Nancy Lanza, suffered in silence, was murdered by her son and friends and educators knew something was seriously wrong with Adam Lanza.
Often, when a parent is struggling at home with a child who has a mental illness or disability, they are completely overwhelmed and very few can understand this unless they walk in the parent’s shoes. More often than not, parents are not aware of the laws and provisions of IDEA and rarely do they have the energy or resources to fight the educational apparatus’ complex, bureaucratic and lengthy legal process. Not all school districts create barriers such as what is described in this article, but the problem is that the vast majority do.
Like Nancy Lanza, many parents end up pulling their children out of school and implementing a home school program. Consequently, removed from the social world, the child’s problems may appear to diminish somewhat… but those problems re-emerge when they are adults and attempt to re-enter mainstream society.
Did you know that twelve children commit suicide every day in the US? Everyday. One must ask what educators knew and what they did or didn’t do while those children were in their care.
Adam Lanza became an evil killer and educators saw signs of trouble as early as the 9th grade. One must ask what educators knew and what they did or didn’t do while he was in their care.
For parents of children with autism, it’s important to correct the media’s unsubstantiated reference to Asperger’s Syndrome with regard to Adam Lanza. Although Adam Lanza’s brother said “somewhat autistic,” if reporters had done their due diligence, they would have learned that an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is not a mental illness and it was not in any way related to what Adam Lanza did.
No evidence exists to link autism and premeditated violence. Suggesting otherwise is wrong and harmful to the more than 1.5 million individuals living with autism in the United States.1
Individuals with autism and those with other disabilities are more likely to be victims of violence than the perpetrators.2
Many of the individuals with Asperger’s syndrome who have committed crimes had co-existing psychiatric disorders.3

The media has yet to discuss the real issue regarding Adam Lanza, the failure of the educational system and what might have prevented the massacre of 27 innocent people in Newtown, CT.
Did his school district follow the law and provide the appropriate interventions, supports and services that he needed while he was young, which could have prevented him from becoming an evil killer that took so many innocent lives on December 14th?
President Obama said that he will put funding toward a solution. Well, here it is Mr. President. Clear evidence of what can be, and should have been, done. These laws are already mandated; they’re on the books. The job of the Executive Branch is to enforce the laws of the land that are enacted by Congress, so that’s what the American people have hired you to do. Enforce the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
*Excerpts of IDEA Legislation:
Child Find System – Sec. 303.321 – IDEA requires all states to have a “comprehensive Child Find system” to assure that all children who are in need of early intervention or special education services are located, identified, and referred.
(a) General. As used in this part, the term individualized education program or IEP means a written statement for each child with a disability that is developed, reviewed, and revised in a meeting in accordance with Sec. Sec. 300.320 through 300.324, and that must include–
(1) A statement of the child’s present levels of academic achievement and functional performance, including–
(i) How the child’s disability affects the child’s involvement and progress in the general education curriculum (i.e., the same curriculum as for nondisabled children); or
(ii) For preschool children, as appropriate, how the disability affects the child’s participation in appropriate activities;
Case law has further clarified the specific parameters of functional, social, and emotional progress. An example of this is Acalanes vs. Student in California .

An American hero, Colonel Harry Tunnell IV, Commander of the 5th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, documented the truth about the war in Afghanistan.
What Obama is really doing in Afghanistan is treasonous.
Dated August 20, 2010, a letter was written to John McHugh, Secretary of the Army, signed by Colonel Harry Tunnell IV. In the letter, four significant factors about military operations in Afghanistan were revealed.
1. When US soldiers arrive in Afghanistan, they are told that they are fighting for the Afghan people:
“Soldiers join the military today to protect the United States, yet they are told once in Afghanistan that we are fighting for the Afghan people – this is a rather mercenary outlook and ignores the fact that the United States was attacked September 11, 2001.”
“The idea that Afghan forces can lead operations such as Marjah, as was touted in the media when the operation began, is pure fancy.”
“As part of our formula for success we place a remarkable amount of emphasis on the Afghan Security Forces without understanding the men who make up that force. It is very unlikely that we will be able to provide Afghans with a level of education and training to make them an independent and reliable force that can deny Afghanistan as a safe haven to terrorists…. The Soviet Union’s attempt to create a professional independent military collapsed as soon as the Soviets withdrew (from Afghanistan), which is what contributed to the ascendency of the Taliban. This should provide an obviously cautionary tale.”
“An overview of a few cultural behaviors of Pashtu men might help one make an informed assessment about the efficacy of plans requiring independent performance from Afghan Security Forces – to determine if the objective is consistent with the reality. This cultural information is well known, there are numerous anecdotal reports, and there is a growing body of research from Human Terrain Teams and others.”
“… Afghan security forces… lack of technical skills… Out of a class of ten at our recent academy to train a Fire and Rescue Service for Spin Boldak District, only two of the trainees had ever driven a vehicle – and that is giving credit to the trainee who had driven a tractor once or twice in his life. Even simple tasks… present challenges.”
“Attempts to integrate women into the security forces… Afghan males are among the greatest misogynists in the world. The Burqa is not a Taliban invention; it is a Pashtu cultural norm.”
“Health and hygiene will not be maintained at an acceptable level… Afghan military units – particularly small outposts – are bastions of filth.”
“Aberrant sexual behavior is acceptable. Considering the misogynistic culture… There is an acceptance of pedophilia that is wide spread and boys are sometimes kidnapped. Leaders have been known to sexually assault male subordinates…”
“NCOs… are largely illiterate.”
“…the population does not like how the Taliban deliver but the incontrovertible fact is that the Taliban are Pashtu and their cultural norms are the same as any other Pashtu male… In fact, religiously inspired Pashtu movements are a traditional part of life in southern Afghanistan. The British… had a nickname for them: “Mad Mullah Movements”. The most frequently ignored fact is that the average farmer in southern Afghanistan will appreciate far more what Mullah Omar is proposing than what we are…”
3. US military resources are misappropriated, leaving our US soldiers ill-equipped and vulnerable to greater risk of death and injury.
“Formations that are assigned maneuver tasks without the requisite training or equipment will suffer increased and unnecessary casualties.”
“There are two important things to note: (1) this mission, to secure Kandahar City and its environs, was exactly how American forces were arrayed before being dispatched in the ill-conceived freedom of movement mission and (2) all of the maneuver was done by United States Army units – an extravagant use of tens of millions of American taxpayer dollars to placate British units and commanders.”
“In addition to marginalizing American leaders, British forces take advantage of American resources such as Full Motion Video from Unmanned Aerial Systems, Route Clearance Packages, and other capability that should go to American soldiers. We had instances when these tools were denied to American troops in contact because they were not released from British control (even though they were observing no enemy activity). A more direct example of disregard for Americans is the manner in which Task Force Helmand addressed the catastrophic IED strike on an American engineer vehicle supporting their operations. The vehicle was attacked with an IED and one US Soldier was killed. The killed and wounded were evacuated, but the remaining Soldiers were left for several days on the disabled vehicle before recovery…. American engineers were eventually forced, at great risk, to get the equipment themselves – having another Route Clearance Package battle damaged in the process. Another instance… when conducting a joint resupply patrol with the British and was abandoned half way through the patrol. The British took the American Route Clearance Package and simply left. The engineer task force sent two Route Clearance Packages to recover this BSB patrol – it took two because the first one was blown up.”
“The denial of American resources to American soldiers that is commonplace is heart-breaking. The United States and Romania allow military personnel to travel on aircraft that do not have armor or defense capability, but several other partner nations do now. The result is that foreign military members are frequently prioritized at a higher level to fly on United States military aircraft which takes seats from Americans who are left to fly civilian contracted air. We expose our own service members to greater danger for the convenience of our partners and the American taxpayer, who has provided this capability for the protection of Americans, is deceived.”
4. Rules of engagement were changed under Obama’s command, thus ensuring greater risk of death and injury to our soldiers.
“Our potential for greater coalition casualties does not have to be inevitable, but due to our flawed approach to operations we wind up enabling our enemy. The population-centric approach which places the population as the center of gravity is applied to the point of absurdity. The enemy is entrenching himself among the civilian population as we cede to him territory and lines of communication. Our poor military approach, inadequate tactics, and haphazard operational art are compounded by NATO partnership in general and British leadership specifically. A gross lack of concern for subordinates manifests in guidance that “zero” civilian casualties are acceptable and coalition soldiers may have to be killed rather than defend themselves against a potential threat and risk being wrong and possibly resulting in injury or death of civilians – a verbal order from MajGen Carter.”
“Population-centric approaches to war have resulted in senior officers that are almost pacifistic in their approach to war; while they may have a public persona that seems offensively spirited, that is not the reality when they are issuing guidance to subordinates.”
“It is clear that US Army units are employed in ways that are grossly inconsistent with sound military tactics.”
“Related to the emphasis on the population, and ignoring an improved capability against the enemy, is the contempt for technology… We are far behind where we should be and this has contributed to increased American deaths and non-combatant casualties while our enemy retains freedom of movement and maneuver locally, regionally, and internationally.”
These truths in Colonel Tunnell’s letter are corroborated by the dramatic increase in US soldier fatalities, injuries and suicide under the Obama regime. As recorded by ICasualties, here are the number of fatalities and wounded to date:
US Soldiers – Fatalities are now up 410% under Obama. (an average of 401 US soldiers per year under Obama versus 79 per year under Bush).
US Soldiers – Wounded are up nearly 1200% under Obama. (an average of 4,010 US soldiers per year under Obama versus 330 per year under Bush).
In addition, US soldier suicide rates have increased to levels never seen before. This began when Obama took over as Commander-In-Chief in 2009. Here is a June 2012 article. Here is a January 2010 article which describes the 2009 suicide rate as follows:
“…the toll of military suicides last year was the worst since records began to be kept in 1980.”
Recall that on the campaign trail in 2008, Obama told the American people that Afghanistan was the war we needed to be fighting. The media promoted this and the majority of Americans unfortunately believed it, along with all the other lies, and elected this man into the Presidency.
On September 21, 2009, eight months after Obama took office, John McHugh was sworn in as the Secretary of the Army. Let us be clear that John McHugh was Obama’s pick.
Less than a year later, in August 2010, John McHugh received Colonel Tunnell’s sobering letter and has done absolutely nothing to address the reality of the conditions on the ground in Afghanistan and the unspeakable risk to our beloved soldiers.
How can we be sure John McHugh has done nothing to slow the slaughter of our soldiers? The skyrocketing rate of US soldier fatalities, injuries and suicide has not subsided; it has remained consistently high throughout Obama’s Presidency.
Who gives John McHugh his marching orders? As the Secretary of the Army, John McHugh carries out the orders of the Commander-In-Chief of the United States – Barack Hussein Obama.
Despite recent reports that US soldiers are being killed by the Afghan’s Security Forces they are ordered to train, Obama and McHugh have done nothing. They render our soldiers virtually defenseless among terrorist predators that may be right next to them.
Weakening our military strength is deliberate and occurring on several fronts.
We’ve shown evidence of what Obama is doing to our troops in Afghanistan, how he has put them at great risk and how he cedes US military control to the coalition.
Obama and Reid pushed for the START Treaty to cede control of US nuclear defenses to Russia.
Obama and Panetta are moving forward to radically slash the US Defense budget.
Obama has embraced our enemies – the radical Islamist Muslim Brotherhood – and has brought them to unimaginable heights of power in the Middle East (e.g. Egypt), plus he has brought them into our White House and into the highest levels of our government.
Obama transferred US wealth and weapons to the radical Islamist Muslim Brotherhood (and their organizations – the Taliban, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, etc.) who want to destroy the US, Israel and the rest of Western Civilization.
Obama waged an illegal war in Libya and his recent actions have cost more American lives. Obama refused to protect them leading up to 9/11 (this year) and he and his administration persistently lied to the American people every step of the way. The cover-up they have been manufacturing is breathtaking – and criminal.
Obama assaults Tricare coverage, making it far more expensive for our soldiers and their families.
Obama and Holder fight to push for the lawless blocking of our soldiers’ right to vote.
Even if Obama loses in November, he will remain at the helm for another three months. That timeframe may prove to be the most dangerous for our soldiers and our country.
Telling US soldiers that they are fighting for the Afghan people is treasonous and Obama, by his actions as Commander-In-Chief, has created the conditions for the unnecessary slaughter of so many of our soldiers. This is not a mistake or incompetence; this is deliberate.
Those who want our troops to come home now are on the right side of history. As long as Obama is President, our soldiers remain in danger. Colonel Tunnell’s letter, coupled with rate of death, injury and suicide under the Obama regime eliminates any doubt about the danger.
Trevor Loudon, political activist from New Zealand and author of the book “Barack Obama and the Enemies Within,” provides factual information, connections and insight into Obama’s deliberate plan to weaken our military beyond repair. This video is a must see…
“The willingness to combat an enemy cannot be turned on and off like a light switch. Leaders are willing to conduct operations at the tactical and operational levels of war to decisively defeat the enemy or they are not. Soldiers join the military today to protect the United States, yet they are told once in Afghanistan that we are fighting for the Afghan people – this is a rather mercenary outlook and ignores the fact that the United States was attacked September 11, 2001. If we have an Army led by people unwilling to defeat a disorganized illiterate adversary such as we face today, even after a despicable surprise attack on our nation, there is little hope that we can defeat a modern sophisticated enemy that we may face in the future.”
Obama will say whatever is needed in order to win the election. Here is what he said during the 2008 Presidential campaign, but actions speak louder than words and this article examines what he has done.
Obama’s foreign policy of Apology and Appeasement serves a distinct purpose and fits into a clear agenda that has remained elusive until now.
Spurred by the 9/11 terrorist attack in Benghazi which resulted in the murder of four Americans, including US Ambassador Christopher Stevens, investigative journalists around the globe have been laser-focused on finding and delivering the facts surrounding this well-planned terrorist massacre.
But there’s another aspect of what Obama has done with this crisis that’s much bigger than the attack itself. What we’re actually seeing is Obama’s use of specific tactics that we’ve seen him use before. These tactics are used to pro-actively advance his “Muslim World” agenda, which he first spoke about at length in Cairo.
So, what is the agenda? Exploring Obama’s handling of each crisis that’s occurred in the past four years, we can clearly see four key characteristics of his agenda.
First, so that we are clear about this, recall the creed of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has not changed and leaves no doubt that they are a terrorist organization…
“Allah is our objective; the Quran is our law; the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”
Here are the four aspects we’ve seen throughout Obama’s Presidency with regard to his “Muslim World” agenda. This may at first seem surprising, but when we look at his actions (more are presented later in this article), we can see these four primary characteristics in play:
Aide the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood and their terrorist organizations:
Obama publicly apologizes to the terrorists for what Americans have done. What does this action do? It provides an excuse/cover for their attacks and creates a narrative which US media spins relentlessly to manipulate Americans into thinking the terrorists may have been justified in their attack. This leads the discussion in a direction that focuses on what America has done, rather than what the terrorists have done. Portraying America as the bad guy facilitates the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood by deflecting attention away from what they’ve done. There are numerous examples – the YouTube video created by an American, the burning of the defiled Qurans by the US military, etc.
Advance the restriction of liberties in the US:
Obama advances his agenda (and Sharia Law by the way) by exacting an assault on our 1st Amendment right to free speech, pronounced by his statement at the UN, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
Obama and Clinton have already signed onto the global blasphemy law (16/18) and Obama is publicly moving Americans in that direction. The gravity of such a move may be lost on most, but for those who are awake and know history, giving the government the power to imprison people for speech is a gateway to hell. It is the polar opposite of America’s foundation, principles, law and culture. We’ve seen this done throughout history in other countries and we know what it means and where it leads.
Another tactic Obama uses to advance his agenda is reflected in what his DHS is doing to American citizens. Think about the NDAA, the modifications he made to the Patriot Act, his TSA, his program called “If you see something, say something,” the huge Utah facility and the Fusion Centers that are collecting massive amounts of data on us, American citizens. 4th Amendment – gone.
Confiscate more of America’s wealth and send it overseas to advance the power of the Muslim Brotherhood:
Obama is using the terrorist attacks as an excuse to siphon more of our tax dollars to Muslim Brotherhood-controlled countries. For Obama, it’s never been about spreading the wealth within the US; it’s all about taking from the US to give to other countries who seek to destroy the US. Our money is being used to empower our enemies and, at the same time, to plunge our nation further into debt and poverty in order to bring about an economic collapse.
As all radical Progressives know, chaos enables radical transformation. Obama’s actions regarding the Muslim World have transformed the Middle East whereby the Muslim Brotherhood has risen to unimaginable heights of power – Egypt being a prime example. Setting the entire Middle East on fire and fueling the chaos with apology and appeasement has been a powerful tool in aiding the rise of America’s enemies. The result is chaos, instability and uncertainty in our own country. Some Americans think we are to blame while others are doing their homework and getting educated about the Muslim World’s goal to destroy Western Civilization.
For those who may be uncertain about whether or not Obama has fueled chaos, ask yourself what actions he has taken that have resulted in stability in the Middle East and here at home. We’ve seen the opposite; under Obama’s reign, the Middle East has been more unstable than we’ve ever seen in our lifetime. Radical transformation is occurring before our very eyes.
Mitt Romney was absolutely correct when he said this, “By failing to maintain the elements of our influence and by stepping away from our allies, President Obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. He does not understand that an American policy that lacks resolve can provoke aggression and encourage disorder.”
It is true that the Middle East is on fire and Obama is fanning the flames by design.
For example, while this administration continued to lie and claim the 9/11 terrorist attack in Benghazi was a spontaneous response to a film, Interim Libyan President Mohammed Magarief said, “It’s a preplanned act of terrorism directed at American citizens.”
Magareif said the “high degree of accuracy” in which the attack was executed—with rocket-propelled grenades and mortar shells—is proof that the assault was preplanned, and not carried out by inexperienced protesters. He said he believes “al-Qaida elements” were involved but stopped short of directly accusing the terrorist group of planning it.
Although the Interim Libyan President told the truth about what has happened in his country, the Obama administration continued to say the opposite, continued to push the American-made YouTube video as the reason for the attack, and Obama’s US media outlets continued to spin in favor of his lies.
Another example is when we saw Obama and Clinton scramble and issue conflicting reports each time new details were revealed. It was obvious that they were not counting on these facts reaching the light of day. As a result, we’ve seen them in auto-shake at times. But the $70,000 ad they ran in the Middle East spoke volumes about their determination to continue to fan the flames of chaos and blame America instead of the terrorists.
One need not be a National Defense expert to see what Obama has been doing. All that’s needed is a willingness to open our eyes and look.
When it comes to all things Middle East, Obama’s actions reflect his deep bow at the feet of those who want to destroy America. Obama doesn’t serve as America’s President, he rules on behalf of those who want to destroy and transform America into something that’s unrecognizable.
If you’re still not sure, ask yourself, “When has Obama defended the US against the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists?” Do an internet search and you will see articles about his defense of the Muslim Brotherhood, but nothing on his defense of the US.
Obama’s incessant berating of the US while deliberately weakening our defenses, elevating the Muslim Brotherhood and aiding their rise to power is stunning and horrifying to those of us who are paying attention.
We watch as media black-outs persist and the propaganda and lies fly faster than the speed of light from him and his media minions.
There is no doubt that the totality of Obama’s actions with regard to the Muslim World tell the story of truth and reveal the dangerous journey we’ve been on for the past four years. Take a look at just some of these actions…
1. To prevent the overthrow of the Iranian government, Obama did not speak publicly in support the people of Iran when they rose up in protest and wanted Ahmadinejad, the Islamic tyrant, removed from power.
2. Throughout his Presidency, Obama has ensured the continuation of Iran’s nuclear missile development while stripping America of our nuclear capabilities and ceding to Russia, an ally of Iran, via the START Treaty. Then Obama is caught on an open mic telling Russia that he only has one more election and then he’ll have more flexibility.
3. Obama publicly ignores Iran’s pronouncement and promise to bring death to America and Israel.
1. To aide the overthrow of the Egyptian government, Obama supported the “community organized” protests in Egypt (yes, Obama’s Code Pink and others were there), went into auto-shake when he thought Mubarak wouldn’t step down and used the resources of his Presidency to support the Muslim Brotherhood rise to power in Egypt.
2. Obama ignored the fact that a female American reporter was brutally gang-raped and nearly killed during the “community organized” Egyptian protests and he continued to publicly praise the “Arab Spring.”
3. Obama sent weaponry and billions of US taxpayer dollars to Egypt after their Muslim Brotherhood President, Morsi, made it clear that Jerusalem will be the capital of Egypt (i.e. they will kill the Jews and overtake Israel).
1. To aide the overthrow of the Libyan government, Obama took the US to war under the guise of a dangerous UN Doctrine, “Responsibility To Protect” (R2P) concocted by Anti-Semite Samantha Powers, Obama’s Senior Director of Multilateral Affairs on the Staff of the National Security Council (who happens to be married to Cass Sunstein and supported by George Soros).
2. Obama armed Libyan rebels in defiance of intelligence that indicated Al-Qaeda terrorists were among those rebels. The ex-SEAL that was murdered in Benghazi with Ambassador Stevens stated that their mission was to recover weapons. Surely Obama didn’t want Americans to know that, while he was conducting the illegal war in Libya and telling us there would be no boots on the ground, he did have boots on the ground supplying US weapons to Al-Qaeda terrorists.
3. Obama continues to lie about the pre-planned 9/11 Benghazi terrorist attack. The Obama administration received warning prior to the attack and also denied the Ambassador’s request for protection. We also learned of Obama’s iron cold response of going to bed after receiving the news of Ambassador Stevens’ murder. In addition, when discussing what happened in Benghazi with 60 Minutes, Obama called it a “bump in the road.”
[12,685 wounded in 3 years under Obama averages 4,228 per year (stats stopped by February 2012). 2,637 wounded in 8 years under Bush averages 330 per year. That’s a 1200% increase in soldiers wounded under Obama.]
2. Obama changed the rules of engagement and the dramatic rise in the number of soldiers killed and wounded in Afghanistan under Commander In Chief Obama tells us just about everything we need to know about the war in Afghanistan. But wait… there’s more…
3. US Soldiers – Suicide rates increased to levels never seen before under Obama. Here’s a June 2012 article. Here’s a January 2010 article which describes the 2009 suicide rate as follows: “the toll of military suicides last year was the worst since records began to be kept in 1980.”
AMERICA – Obama’s actions as the President of the United States:
The list of Obama’s actions is lengthy, but here are some of them:
Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, tells Congress and the American people that the Muslim Brotherhood movement is “largely secular” (“Muslim,” oh really?) that “has eschewed violence” even though we know they are the terrorist umbrella organization that created Al-Qaeda, Taliban, Hezbollah and Hamas as well as CAIR, ISNA, MSA and many other organizations that operate freely in America and have penetrated and infiltrated our government at the highest levels.
Obama supported the release of the Pan Am Flight 103 Libyan terrorist as shown in THIS White House letter.
Obama and Clinton removed restrictions to bring a known terrorist into our White House. This terrorist came to our White House to demand the release of the blind Sheikh, Omar Abel-Rahman, who masterminded the 1993 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center that killed seven Americans and injured a thousand.
Obama has been in talks with the Muslim Brotherhood (including Egypt’s new Muslim Brotherhood President, Morsi) to release the blind Sheikh. It appears highly likely that Obama will release him after the November election whether he wins a second term or not.
Obama gave a deep bow to the Saudi King; never before done by a US President.
Obama supports the Ground Zero Mosque even though more than 70% of New Yorkers are against it and Obama knows that Islam builds Mosque’s at the sites they conquer.
Obama gave a big pay day to Egypt for the release of American hostages. Among the hostages was the son of Ray LaHood, Obama’s Secretary of Transportation.
Obama orders the military to burn Bibles that were sent to our troops in Afghanistan.
Huma Abedin, close advisor to Clinton, is the daughter of Muslim Brotherhood parents, sister to her Muslim Brotherhood brother and she worked with Muslim Brotherhood operatives until taking a position in Obama’s State Department.
Obama instructed the DNC to remove Jerusalem and God from the Democratic platform. Public pressure drove them to amend the platform; however, the delegates voted against reinstating Jerusalem and God. In opposition of the vote, it was reinstated anyway – again, due to public/political pressure.
When we look at the facts and the direction Obama has taken us, there is no doubt his “Muslim World” journey over the past four years has been active, targeted, consistent and deliberate. The consequences of that journey… of Obama’s actions in America and across the globe is visibly profound and indisputably dangerous for our country, our safety and our way of life.
To further understand Obama’s “Muslim World” journey, Americans need to look at this Welcome to The Project and they also need to know about Civilization Jihad because Obama’s actions demonstrate that he fully supports it and appears to be using our White House as its headquarters.
“The Explanatory Memorandum (click here for the original document in Arabic) explains that the Muslim Brotherhood-organized “Islamic Movement” in the US is a “settlement process” to establish itself in the United States and, once entrenched, to undertake a “grand jihad” characterized as a “civilization jihadist” mission under Muslim Brotherhood direction.
Specifically the document describes the “settlement process” as a “grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated.”
The Muslim Brotherhood is relying on non-Muslims in America to aid it, usually inadvertently, to destroy America from within.”
What Obama is doing is not an accident, incompetence or miscalculation. Quite the opposite; Obama is deliberately using his position as President of the United States to advance the reach and power of the Muslim Brotherhood and their Islamic terrorist organizations.
The destination?… Destroy America from within and obliterate Israel.
So you see, Obama’s Apology and Appeasement is a deliberate policy that gives cover to the terrorists in order to strengthen and empower the radical Islamic “Muslim World” while, at the same time, weakening and transforming America to ensure her demise. Fueling chaos, financing their terror and aiding their rise and our fall is on full display for all to see.
Under the Obama regime, we have seen a media blackout when it comes to the truth about radical Islam and their stated mission to destroy Western Civilization.
In the 20th Century our enemy was Communism, which we defeated. Back then, we knew what Communism was and we called it by its real name.
In the 21st Century, America’s enemy is radical Islam and with Obama as President, we are not permitted to call it by its real name. We have seen the name of America’s enemy stricken from all training manuals and government documents. We’ve watched while the lamestream government-controlled media has replaced truth with propaganda that squashes debate and ridicules those who dare to speak the truth.
An enemy that cannot be named, cannot be conquered. Worse yet, the lamestream media persists in elevating the enemy; they are aiding and abetting America’s enemy to ensure its rise and America’s fall.
Flashback – take a look at news reports prior to Obama’s Presidency and compare it to what you hear today.
Here is a taste of the propaganda we are fed through US media since Obama’s reign. Listen closely at 1:10 min. and 2:30 min. in this interview. This unbelievable blather is echoed throughout the media coverage we’ve seen since Obama was elected, regardless of the issue or controversy being discussed. Also notice the questions and tone of the MSNBC anchor.
A note about the particular controversy in the above video: Throughout history, radical Islam builds Mosques at the sites they have conquered, which is exactly why they wanted the Ground Zero Mosque. More than 70% of New Yorkers opposed the Ground Zero Mosque. Why? Because we, the people, are obviously better-educated than this news anchor/propagandist. We’ve done our homework.
The law of the land in radical Islamic countries is Sharia Law, which is contrary to and incompatible with American law. For example, Islamic Sharia Law includes stoning women to death, treating women as slaves, executing gays, killing family members for ‘dishonoring’ the family, prohibiting free speech, etc. Islamic Sharia IS how these Islamic countries practice their “religion” because Islamic Sharia is all-encompassing. It applies to all aspects of life – culturally, politically, religiously, militarily, socially and personally – even down to specific dictates regarding hygienic procedures.
Recall that the Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt, Morsi, has promised to institute Islamic Sharia Law in Egypt. Some Arab Spring, eh? “Democracy” does not exist under Islamic Sharia; it is a totalitarian governmental structure with tyrannical rule over the people.
Islamic Sharia is subversive to our American form of government and our way of life; therefore, it does not fall under the protections granted by our 1st Amendment.
Think it can’t happen here? It’s already happening. The lamestream media is clearly withholding the truth from Americans and they are attempting to change our way of thinking to the point that we no longer recognize clear and present danger to our way of life. But remember, as shown in the flashback videos in this article, the media did tell Americans about radical Islam before Obama became President.
There is no question that radical Islam has advanced their mission here in America, so it is important for us to educate ourselves and our youth on what is really going on. Stay informed about the infiltration and indoctrination that has accelerated since Obama became President.
Luckily, there is a news media outlet dedicated to bringing us the truth in all areas that are important to Americans. It’s “The Blaze.” On the subject of radical Islam, be sure to see The Blaze’s newest documentary called “The Project.” You can see Part 1 HERE at NoisyRoom.
A glimpse into Obama’s background, pals and the people who surround him tell us more about who this man really is and why he has put America on such a destructive path.
In Part 1, we discussed Obama’s transformation of America through his actions as President. Now let’s explore some of the real facts about Obama’s upbringing that the media will never tell you.
OBAMA’S BACKGROUND, PALS AND THOSE WHO SURROUND HIM:
Who raised Obama and influenced his ideology and perceptions? For most of us, it begins with our parents. For Obama, however, his father was absent and his mother, a devout Marxist, shipped him off to Hawaii while she remained in Indonesia.
Being raised by his Marxist grandparents, Obama’s grandfather ensured that his mentor would be an influential member of the Communist Party, who also happened to be a pornographer and drug user. From age 9 to 18, Obama was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, Communist Party member number CP47544, who was a hardcore Stalinist with a 600-page FBI file that identified him as being on the FBI’s Security Index.
Obama’s mentor was a subversive, a Communist, a Stalinist – an America-hater through and through.
Investigative journalist’s Trevor Loudon and Cliff Kincaid did what the lamestream media refused to do (most in lamestream may already know Obama’s background, but they will never tell you the truth about him and, as you know, they continue to promote Obama as something he is not).
In 2007, Gerald Horne, a historian at the University of Houston, gave a speech that made the connection between Obama and his childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. Trevor Loudon discovered Mr. Horne’s speech in 2008, while he was researching Obama’s background. Gerald Horne stated:
“…in Hawaii was an African-American poet and journalist by the name of Frank Marshall Davis, who was certainly in the orbit of the CP (Communist Party) — if not a member — and who was born in Kansas and spent a good deal of his adult life in Chicago, before decamping to Honolulu in 1948 at the suggestion of his good friend (and Communist Party member) Paul Robeson. Eventually, he befriended another family — a Euro-American family — that had migrated to Honolulu from Kansas and a young woman from this family eventually had a child with a young student from Kenya East Africa who goes by the name of Barack Obama, who retracing the steps of Davis eventually decamped to Chicago. In his best selling memoir ‘Dreams From My Father’, the author speaks warmly of an older black poet, he identifies simply as “Frank” as being a decisive influence in helping him to find his present identity as an African-American…”
Obama wrote about his mentor, “Frank,” 22 times in his autobiographical book, “Dreams From My Father.”
Investigative journalist Cliff Kincaid decided it was best to go to a Communist to find out whether Frank Marshall Davis was Obama’s childhood mentor. He spoke to Professor Kathryn Takara of the University of Hawaii at Manoa because she knew and wrote about Frank Marshall Davis. Cliff asked her if the “Frank” in Obama’s book is Frank Marshall Davis. She confirmed that, indeed, it is Frank Marshall Davis.
Cliff also interviewed Frank’s biographer, John Edgar Tidwell, who confirmed that Frank Marshall Davis was a member of the Communist Party. Cliff submitted a FOIA request to obtain the 600-page FBI file on Frank and has made the entire file available on his website at USA Survival News.
Lamestream media practically glorifies Communists/Socialists, but definitions of these words help to clarify and ground us in order to overcome the media propaganda:
Communist – One held to engage in left-wing, subversive, or revolutionary activities. An adherent or advocate of a Communist government, party, or movement.
Communism – A doctrine based on revolutionary Marxian socialism and Marxism-Leninism that was the official ideology of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. A totalitarian system of government in which a single authoritarian party controls state-owned means of production.
Socialism – A system of society or group living in which there is no private property. A system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state. Any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.
Stalinism – The political, economic, and social principles and policies associated with Stalin; especially: the theory and practice of communism developed by Stalin from Marxism-Leninism and marked especially by rigid authoritarianism, widespread use of terror, and often emphasis on Russian nationalism.
Recall that when Obama and his Communist mentor were together in Hawaii, Obama was 9 years old and Hawaii had only become part of the United States on August 21, 1959 – barely over a decade prior. Hawaii was still in its relative infancy in terms of modernizing and adapting to the foundational principles of America. Despite Hawaii’s attempts to diversify, it remains primarily a tourist state.
Suffice it to say that between Obama’s years in Indonesia and Hawaii, he barely experienced “America.” His ideology and perception of the US came from his Communist mentor, his Marxist/Atheist mother and his Marxist grandparents.
Is it any wonder Obama headed off to Occidental College as a hardcore Marxist Revolutionary? This is confirmed by those who knew him at Occidental and even Obama confirms it in his autobiography when he plainly states that he sought out Marxist Professors.
And what was Obama’s profession when he finished school? Basically, he taught community organizers – only the Socialist/Marxist/Communist/Progressive kind – how to employ Saul Alinsky tactics to achieve their destructive goals.
Obama aligned himself with criminals (e.g. Tony Rezko) and radical political arms of the Democratic Party (e.g. ACORN). He supported them in pushing to expand the Community Reinvestment Act under Bill Clinton which led to the collapse of our housing market, and his only noteworthy legal endeavor as an attorney was pushing the motor-voter act which enhanced voter fraud in America.
Other than that, voluntarily retiring his law license, writing books about himself, and voting “present” most of the time as a Jr. Senator, this Marxist Revolutionary man has literally done little else before holding the highest office in the land. Yet he knew exactly what he and his comrades wanted to do to America and his actions prove it.
Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, also hardcore Marxists who seek the destruction of America, were at Obama’s side in Chicago and, yes, Bill Ayers has visited the White House more than once. George Soros, international financier and felon, who pours millions into NGO’s and community organizers who seek to destroy America, is also a White House visitor. Andy Stern, former SEIU President and devout America-hater, won the “most visits to the White House” award under the Obama administration. Stephen Lerner, another SEIU America-hater, visited the White House as he and Frances Fox Piven worked on creating the Occupy Wall Street Astroturf in hopes of accelerating the collapse of America’s economy.
These are just a few of Obama’s pals and those who surround him. The company he keeps speaks volumes. And, yes, in American culture, people with whom a public official chooses to associate, tells us volumes about that person. Coupled with Obama’s actions, we surely know quite a lot about this man.
The media keeps telling us that Obama is “likeable”, but if they told you the truth about who he is, what he has done and what he really meant when he said he would fundamentally transform America, “likeability” would be the non-issue that it should be, because it has nothing to do with anything.
What has become of Obama’s Hope and Change slogan?
“Hope” lies in the fact that ratings for the lamestream propaganda media have plummeted.
The “change” we can believe in is that the vast majority of Americans are seeking the truth elsewhere. We are reading the legislation, the regulations and Executive Orders that Obama spits out at us almost daily. We are informing others, organizing and using the internet to spread the truth.
Ratings are robust for Conservative talk radio, such as Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh. Online media like Glenn Beck’s Blaze TV and blogs like NoisyRoom, New Zeal and many others have millions of readers/viewers. Yes… even Independents and Democrats are turning to them for real news and facts that American’s want and need to know.
We had no hand in Obama’s background, associations, actions or ideology, but we absolutely have a right to know those things about him as a Presidential candidate. History will record the media’s deliberate cover-up of the truth about Obama.
Many were fooled and taken in by the lies in 2008, but we’re seeing the results, so it’s important to spread the truth. If you encounter kool-aid drinkers, don’t let it get to you. Move on until you find someone who actually uses their brain to think and their eyes to see. There are more of us thinkers than there are kool-aid drinkers who merely regurgitate lamestream media talking points and propaganda.
As Alexis de Tocqueville observed, “America is great because America is good.” We understand that the battle lines are drawn. We truly are fighting an evil that is moving Forward to destroy our culture, our nation and our way of life.
Anyone who knows and comprehends the facts about Obama knows they must vote for Romney/Paul Ryan to end Obama’s reign of terror over America and begin to reverse the transformation.
Victory by a wide margin is essential since we know the groundwork is in place for massive voter fraud and litigation by Obama’s army of lawyers.
We must use the power we have, while we still can, to ensure Obama is not re-elected… and it is your voice and your vote that carries this power. We, our children and future generations, will closely examine this time in history.
Fascism or Liberty; it’s time to decide, spread the word and vote on November 6th to get Obama out of our White House.
After we take back our country, we’ll work on taking back the media and our educational system.
