Al Sharpton

Eric Garner & Trayvon Martin Family, Michael Brown Lawyer Say Al Sharpton Exploited Their Tragedies

Project Veritas

(New York, February 23, 2015) – Award-winning journalist and New York Times’ best-selling author James O’Keefe released a powerful new video today showing how the families, and attorneys of Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and Michael Brown really feel about Al Sharpton. O’Keefe, president and founder of Project Veritas, led a team of investigative journalists to uncover how these families and the communities of Staten Island, NY; Miami, Florida; and Ferguson, MO really feel about Sharpton’s involvement in the aftermath of the deaths of Garner, Martin, and Brown.

O’Keefe’s latest video confirms and highlights what many have long suspected: Al Sharpton is motivated by avarice and pride, rather than social justice and bringing about change.

A member of O’Keefe’s team spoke with the late Eric Garner’s oldest daughter, Erica, on a brisk January evening in Staten Island. Garner did not hold back when asked about Sharpton’s involvement, stating: “he’s about the money.”

Garner, who has become a passionate champion for social change following the death of her father, accused Sharpton and his National Action Network of “attacking” her for not giving them credit; and trying to capitalize on her father’s death. “Instead of me, he wants his face in front of them,” said Garner of Sharpton.

Garner was visibly angered at Sharpton and the National Action Network. Indeed, rather than help, Garner felt as if Sharpton and NAN were trying to take advantage of her: “Al Sharpton paid for the funeral. She’s [Cynthia Davis, President of the Staten Island Chapter of NAN] trying to make me feel like I owe them,” a statement that shocked one of Garner’s friends who was speaking with Erica and a Project Veritas journalist.

In Florida, a Project Veritas investigative journalist spoke with Tracy Martin, the father of the late Trayvon Martin, at a banquet for the Trayvon Martin Foundation. Martin quickly distanced himself from Sharpton, stating: “he’s on his own personal mission.”

Troy Wright, the President and Executive Director of the Trayvon Martin Foundation, further distanced Martin’s family and the Martin Foundation from Sharpton. When asked about Sharpton and NAN, Wright responded “that’s a sore subject with us right now.” Indeed, all traces of Sharpton and NAN have recently been removed from the Foundation’s website. Wright also strongly insinuated to Project Veritas that a decision had been made not to invite Sharpton to a recent Foundation banquet.

O’Keefe’s team also spoke with prominent leaders in Ferguson, who were sharply critical of Sharpton. Bishop Calvin Scott, whose personal dealings with Sharpton in the aftermath of the Michael Brown tragedy left him critical of the MSNBC host, told Project Veritas that he “incites people for the wrong reason,” that he gets people “all fired up,” and that is “not the way you want to go.” Bishop Scott went as far as to place partial blame on Sharpton for inciting violence in Ferguson: pointedly stating “when you have a fuse that is already lit, you don’t need to add no more fire to it.”

When asked if Sharpton used the Michael Brown controversy to raise money, Bishop Scott told a Project Veritas journalist “you’re not the first person to raise that question… someone in the higher up that even mentioned… the history of an Al Sharpton, and an organization such as him, and they emphatically stated that… for them, knowing their history, it’s about money.”

Stacy Garner (no relation to Eric or Erica Garner) of Ferguson Christian Church told another member of O’Keefe’s team that he believed Sharpton was exploiting the Michael Brown tragedy for his own profit and that “instead of bringing us together, I think he was drawing us apart.”

“Sharpton’s perception of himself is a far cry from how he is perceived by the families and communities he thrust himself upon,” stated James O’Keefe. “By all accounts, Sharpton appears to be abusing the bully pulpit given to him by MSNBC to capitalize on tragedies. It was quite apparent from the number of individuals we spoke to that Sharpton views tragedies as opportunities, and that he is willing to do whatever it takes to further his personal agenda.”

Barack Obama and Frank Marshall Davis

The Mysterious “Frank” Returns

By: Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media

Yesterday’s news became big news on the Fox News Channel on Thursday when former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani brought up the name of President Barack Obama’s childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. It was almost seven years to the day when we published our seminal piece about Davis, “Obama’s Communist Mentor.”

Davis was a member of the Communist Party and a suspected Soviet espionage agent. He was included in the FBI’s security index, meaning that Davis could be arrested or detained in the event of a national emergency. The FBI file on Davis documents his anti-white and pro-Soviet views, infiltration of the Hawaii Democratic Party, and other activities.

Davis also wrote an autobiographical and pornographic sex novel, Sex Rebel, disclosing that he had sex with a young girl and engaged in shocking and bizarre sexual activities.

Giuliani’s public identification of Davis and discussion of his role in grooming a young Barack Obama marks the first time, in my memory, that a top Republican has ever mentioned the Davis-Obama relationship. It was done in the context of Fox News’ Megyn Kelly of questioning how Giuliani could dare ask whether Obama loves America.

If the Republicans had brought this up during the 2008 campaign, Obama might have been defeated and the country could have been spared the last six years of “progressive” hope and change. The Davis-Obama relationship is something so damaging and corrupt that its public airing would have raised questions about the Democratic Party’s vetting of Obama and the direction of the Democratic Party itself.

However, Republican operative Karl Rove was warning Republicans not to accuse Obama of being a socialist. He said such a charge would generate a negative backlash. The result in 2012 was another Obama victory.

Now that it has become apparent to more and more people that Obama is not a traditional liberal Democrat and is, in fact, a Marxist with Muslim sympathies, a figure such as Giuliani feels compelled to speak out. So let’s take a look at what Giuliani said.

“I don’t feel it. I don’t feel this love of America,” Giuliani said, talking about Obama. “I’m talking about a man who grew up under the influence of Frank Marshall Davis who was a member of the Communist Party, who he refers to over and over in his book, who was a tremendous critic of the United States.”

Kelly countered that Obama “was raised in part by his grandparents. His grandfather served in World War II, his grandmother worked in a munitions plant to help the nation during World War II. I mean, to suggest he was raised by people who don’t love America or didn’t help him learn to love America.”

Giuliani argued that “his grandfather introduced him to Frank Marshall Davis, who was a communist.” He added, “You can fight in World War II, and then you introduce someone to a Communist and the young boy gets…”

After Kelly interjected that “it’s a political world view. It’s not a hatred for the country,” Giuliani responded, “Communism wasn’t hatred for America?”

Giuliani is correct about the Davis influence over Obama and the role that the grandfather played in picking Davis as a mentor.

But when Giuliani notes that Obama refers to Davis “over and over in his book,” Dreams from My Father, it’s important to point out that Davis was not identified as Frank Marshall Davis in that book. Instead, Obama identified him merely as “Frank.” The rest of the story was put together by anti-communist researcher Trevor Loudon, and we confirmed the identification with another source in Hawaii who was a close friend of Davis.

Even more of the story was put together by Paul Kengor in his authoritative book on Davis, The Communist. It appears that Davis was an influence over Obama for about nine full years, until Obama was 18 and went off to college. Obama went off to college and, by his own admission, would attend socialist conferences and pick Marxist professors as his friends.

This relationship alone would have disqualified Obama from getting low-level federal employment. The loophole in our system is that background checks are not required for federal elected officials. Our founders counted on a free press to review the fitness of those running for office.

When former Obama adviser David Axelrod talks about Obama being free from major scandals, he is ignoring the biggest scandal of all—how Obama concealed his Marxist upbringing and relationship with Davis. Axelrod of course was part of the cover-up. When “Frank” was identified as Davis, the Obama campaign insisted he was just a civil rights activist.

As we reported at the time, news organizations such as the Associated Press, The Washington Post, Newsweek and even Fox News ignored or downplayed Davis’s communist sympathies.

As Giuliani indicated, there are other influences on Obama that help explain his anti-Americanism. These include the “community organizing” philosophy of Saul Alinsky, his pastor Jeremiah Wright and the communist terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

Giuliani clearly feels, at this stage in Obama’s presidency, that some things have to be said openly for the sake of the country. A former crime-busting U.S. Attorney who was mayor of New York City at the time of 9/11, Giuliani fears for the future of our country. But it’s not just the fate of America that is at stake. It is clear that Obama has no love for America’s traditional allies, such as Israel. Hence, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is coming to America to plead his case personally. He is afraid that Obama wants to make a deal that will allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons.

Now that Giuliani has publicly raised some inconvenient truths about Obama, the “progressives” and their media allies will naturally scream and cry “McCarthyism.”  Strangely taking this tack, Fox News’ Kelly wondered if Giuliani’s comments about Obama had damaged “the Republican brand.” The Republican brand will only be damaged by an inability to face facts and confront and expose anti-Americanism at the highest levels of the United States government. It is shocking that it has taken this long for the evidence to emerge publicly on a national basis on Fox News and other channels.

This controversy will help determine what direction the Republicans will take. The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank, who has made it his job to protect Obama from the fallout from major scandals, was quick to label Giuliani’s remarks about Obama as “stupid.” He also attacked Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker as “spineless” for saying Giuliani “can speak for himself,” and not directly challenging what the former mayor had said

“What Scott Walker did ought to disqualify him as a serious presidential contender,” wrote Milbank.

This is a signal from one of Obama’s best friends in the media that the information unearthed by Giuliani is of the blockbuster variety. Giuliani went for the jugular and hit a gusher.

The first thing Republicans can do is simply challenge the media to report on the Davis FBI file. They have been avoiding it for over six years.

Congress could also investigate Obama’s communist connections, which stretch from Hawaii to Chicago, and question the FBI about what they knew, if anything, about the Obama-Davis relationship. The reestablishment of House and Senate internal security committees, including a loyalty program for U.S. officials to eliminate security risks, should be considered.

Republicans could remind people that it was anti-communist Democratic President Harry Truman who started the first loyalty program. He issued executive order 9835 establishing the program in 1947.

The executive order said that “each employee of the Government of the United States is endowed with a measure of trusteeship over the democratic processes which are at the heart and sinew of the United States,” and declared that “the presence within the Government service of any disloyal or subversive person constitutes a threat to our democratic processes…”

It is time for a background check on the President of the United States. Does he pass the loyalty test?

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Christian horses found too high

Uppity Christian horsemen from the Crusades are still
trampling modern-day Muslim pacifists.

As everyone knows, the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington is a yearly event designed to put Christians in their place and advance Islam as the national religion. At today’s breakfast, President Obama once again met the expectations of the progressive movement by telling off those uppity Christians like a true Muslim would:

“Unless we get on our high horse and think that this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

Indeed, in these dark times of Christian Extremism, what we need is a president who can inform the world about all of the Christian atrocities throughout history for which currently living Americans are personally responsible. Having effectively airbrushed “Islamic Extremism” from the lexicon, Obama completed his sermon with a prayer towards Mecca.

Christians are hereby instructed to remove incorrect pages from their Bibles and replace them with the following corrected transcript of Jesus’ words: “Thou shalt murder gays; thou shalt enslave minorities; thou shalt bomb women and children.”

Since there isn’t an equivalent in the Quran of anything so hateful as this corrected version of Biblical history, Christians need to get off their high horses and admit that Jesus had personally instigated terrible atrocities, as proven by the Crusades and the Inquisition.

As if that weren’t enough, Jesus had the audacity to die but not stay dead, to walk around alive and kicking for forty more days, and then to fly up to heaven. Such antisocial behavior allowed Christians to start getting uppity around 33 A.D., which still continues unabated to this day.

The science is settled: there are no Islamic Extremists anywhere on Earth because President Obama has never uttered the words. Christians, on the other hand, are committing terrible atrocities daily, taking hostages, cutting off heads, blowing themselves up in public places, burning people alive, and otherwise terrorizing the peaceful and rapidly diminishing Muslim community. No verification of these facts is required simply because Obama is a genius who would never tell a lie.

President Obama is seen modeling a People-approved low-horse for those who are barely Christians, pretending to be Christians, or embarrassed by Christianity.

It is known that President Ronald Reagan liked to ride horses – all of them high – for which he is revered among Christian Extremists. He was once even injured in a fall from his high horse. Let that be a lesson to all Christians to get off their high horses and stay off.


President Reagan’s horse was so high that in order to fit it into his Presidential Library, workers had to chop off its legs. This picture gives a whole new meaning to “Reagan’s quarterhorse.” Too high a horse would not be a humble memorial for a Christian anyway.

Here, President Reagan is seen assisting his wife Nancy off of her high horse.

In view of the above, our scientists at the People’s Cube Karl Marx Treatment Center have developed recommendations on how to get Christians off their high horses efficiently: hack off the high horse’s legs or replace them with miniature low horses.

A standard horse owned by a Christian should be no taller than 36 inches. All horse-riding Christians will be subject to measuring with a pole similar to those used on amusement park rides.

This Christian got off her high horse, and the world is a lot better off.

Compliance with these measures is expected to level the playing field, bringing Christians closer to the ground where the peaceful Muslim crowd congregates.

And finally, as we discussed the subject of Christian high horses at our latest meeting, we received a few questions from confused members of the audience. People wanted to know whether the horse in question was a Christian, what exactly the definition of “high” was, and what if President Obama really meant to say that the horse was high from marijuana and the Christian should get off to avoid contact.

We will make sure to ask the White House spokesperson, Josh Earnest, for clarification on what the President really meant. Until then, the debate gallops on.

This Christian white male needs to get off his high horse. It’s offensive to Muslims.

Michele Fiore

When Fiore Speaks, Tongues Wag

Many of you may not know this, but Conservative Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R-District 4) and I go way back to the early ’90s when we ran together in Vegas. Blondie has been my bestie forever. I will never forget her coming to my side in the middle of the night in 1999 when my father passed. She sat with me in the hospital and kept me from coming totally unglued. I owe Michele more than I can ever repay her in so many ways. Plus, she’s a firebrand and a hell raiser. We had a blast. So, I was thrilled when she stood up at the Bundy Ranch. But she’s not done… oh, no… she’s kicking ass and taking names. Good times. She’s slapping Leftist Progressive Republicans up alongside the head in Nevada and I am simply basking in her glow. Feels sooooo good I cannot stand it! My feel good moment of the year. You guys messed with the wrong filly this time and she will stomp you into the ground with a smile and 4-inch stilettos. Enjoy!

Conservative Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R-District 4)

From Chuck Muth (another friend and rabble rouser):


Conservative Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R-District 4) is brash. She’s outspoken. She’s plainspoken. Sometimes profane. She has no filter. She tells it like it is. She calls a spade a spade. And she is unapologetic about her conservatism.

What a breath of fresh air!

Sometimes the media finds her; sometimes she finds the media.

But for far too long, far too many conservative Republicans in Nevada have treated the media as if they have Ebola. They don’t talk to the press. They don’t return reporters’ phone calls. They don’t appear on radio or TV talk shows.

“No comment” is usually their only comment.

As such, the public in general, and conservatives in particular, often have no idea what’s going on in Carson City. And frankly, that’s the way most state legislators like it.

They prefer to do the public’s business behind closed doors under the Legislature’s roof. The last thing they want is to have their business conducted in the light of day, fully transparent.

They also don’t like legislators who give it to us straight without a chaser. They prefer media statements such as, “We have every intention of doing what’s in the best interest of Nevadans, especially the children.”

Blech. Mouths of mush.

Then along comes Fiore.

When the media turned the heat up on Assemblyman Ira Hansen shortly after he was elected Speaker-designate last month over columns he’d written which were portrayed as racist and homophobic…Hansen quit.

When the heat got turned up on Fiore over a series of IRS tax liens related to a massive embezzlement scheme at her business, Fiore didn’t quit.

Instead she faced her accusers head on. She went on a talk radio program and took every question from the host, as well as several questions from hostile callers for a full hour.

Alas, in the same interview she also lifted up a rock and “outed” two anti-conservative GOP political consultants – by name – as well as a tax-hiking GOP donor.

Subsequent to the furor over those accusations – and losing her leadership positions within the Republican Assembly Caucus (RAC) because of them – it was confirmed that, well, everything she said was…true.

Sure, it was embarrassing for Speaker-designee John Hambrick – since it was his own political consultant/personal valet, Nathan Emens, who got caught with his sticky fingers in both the Republican AND Democrat cookie jars in the last election, as well as threatening to sue every member of the RAC – but all of us are better off having had this dirty laundry exposed and aired in public.

And after realizing that her initial radio appearance to explain the IRS tax liens still left some questions open – hey, nobody’s perfect – she took her accountant and went back in the lion’s den AGAIN on Friday!

And in the second interview, Fiore cleared up any and all remaining questions for all but her most strident opponents – which her accountant verified, on air.

Fiore even shut up Nevada’s #2 liberal blogger-without-a-TV-show, Jon Ralston, who during the program twit-tweeted…

“So @VoteFiore is claiming she will have liens paid off in next few years. We are still waiting for letter from IRS proving she has a deal.”

Right after twit-tweeting that, and after the commercial break, show host Alan Stock came back on the air and asked Fiore if she had any proof that she had a written agreement with the IRS to repay the money that had been embezzled from her company.

And Fiore was loaded for bear!

She handed Stock the signed document and Stock verified – on the air to thousands upon thousands of listeners – that yes, Fiore does, in fact, have a signed repayment agreement with the IRS.

In addition, she has been paying back MORE each month than she is required to pay by the agreement.

Ralston spent the rest of interview wiping the egg off his self-righteous face!

Look, dealing with the media is hazardous. More so if you’re a conservative. More so if you’re an outspoken, unapologetic conservative. And even more so if you’re a conservative leader.

Mistakes will be made. Things will be said that can and will be taken out of context. Indeed, sometimes something will be said that probably shouldn’t have been said even IN context.

But the answer isn’t to go hide in a closet, crouched down in the dark, shivering in fear because a reporter shows up at your door wanting to ask a question.

When it comes to dealing with the media, as Fiore herself might say, it’s time for Republican legislators to grow a pair. The media has a legitimate job to do, and they are, like it or not, an integral part of our governing system.

The Fourth Estate.

I know it bugs the heck out of some of her colleagues that Fiore garners so much press attention. For some, they just can’t stand the transparency of having a spotlight shined on their activities. For others, it’s jealousy.

But for conservatives, it’s refreshing to finally have a non-apologetic spokesman who is unafraid to engage the media and occasionally mix it up with them.

Let Fiore be Fiore.


Making Americans Sick to Achieve a Political Majority

By: James Simpson
Accuracy in Media

With reports that illegal immigrants bring the risk of Ebola and other viral illnesses, Association of American Physicians and Surgeons representative, Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet, has noted that, “Border Patrol sources repeatedly warn that we do not know who is coming across our southern borders, all the countries of origin, what diseases they may carry, or where they go after being released with a summons to appear months later in court.”

An investigation by the Accuracy in Media Center for Investigative Journalism shows that American religious groups, using federal money, are facilitating this growing crisis and trying to keep the media in the dark about the nature of the threat.

Importing Dangerous Diseases

As Dr. Vliet indicated, many illegals are bringing in diseases and parasites. They have been shipped around the country under a veil of secrecy. But word is getting out:

  • A Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) facility in Artesia, New Mexico used to house illegals has been locked down following an outbreak of chicken pox.
  • A week earlier the same facility found that 89 of its 603 detainees tested positive for tuberculosis, though none had contracted the disease.
  • Reported infections among illegals include chicken pox, TB, swine flu, pneumonia, other respiratory illnesses and epidemics of scabies and lice.
  • The deadly Chagas disease, formerly limited to Central and South America, is now spreading to the U.S. with an estimated 300,000 cases nationwide. Northern Virginia has been described as “ground zero” for the disease. Its vector, the kissing bug, has been found in Texas, Arizona and California.
  • A DHS Office of Inspector General report states that border agents and their families are contracting the diseases and parasites brought in by illegals. A border agent and others in Texas have contracted TB.

On July 31, President Obama revised a Bush-era executive order allowing for apprehension, detention or conditional release of people with severe respiratory diseases. Was this a coincidence?

A leaked copy of an official Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confidential report was published on August 4th by Brandon Darby of Breitbart Texas. It reveals that, in addition to the flood of illegals from Central America, the border is being penetrated by tens of thousands of illegals from almost every country on the planet. The table below provides a sampling of apprehended Third Country Nationals (TCN) that should be of concern to security officials as well as all Americans.

Foreign Nationals Posing Highest National Security Risk
Apprehended at Southern Border – 2014
Military/Terrorism Ebola-Infected
China 3,246 Nigeria 892
Iran 511 Liberia 41
Albania 363 Guinea 38
Syria 202 Sierra Leone 21
Iraq 199
Russia 195
Afghanistan 92
Yemen 38
Libya 16
Source: Customs and Border Protection


Most significantly, the official report records 100 apprehensions in 2014 of individuals from the Ebola outbreak countries of Liberia (41), Guinea (38), and Sierra Leone (21). Nigeria has only two confirmed and eight suspected Ebola cases—all health workers exposed to an American who died of the disease. However, 892 Nigerians have been apprehended at the border in 2014, and Nigeria made CBP’s “Top 5 TCNs” list for the week of July 14 through 20, with 28 apprehensions.

It seems clear that many Nigerians, perhaps in the emerging West African drug trade, continue to penetrate our borders. Thus, there is reason for genuine concern that infected individuals could be entering the country illegally, perhaps spreading the disease to other illegals they are traveling with. This poses an existential threat to border officials or anyone else who comes into contact with them.

Despite fears of an Ebola outbreak in the U.S., most health officials quoted in the news say that while Ebola is deadly, it is not spread easily, requiring direct contact with bodily fluids for infection to occur. American doctors, they say, would contain any outbreak quickly. Others however, cite the history of the various Ebola strains, and related hemorrhagic fevers like the Marburg virus, suggesting that they may be air-transmissible. Canada Free Press, for example, cited the Ebola-Reston outbreak. The CDC fact sheet on Ebola states:

Ebola-Reston appeared in a primate research facility in Virginia, where it may have been transmitted from monkey to monkey through the air. While all Ebola virus species have displayed the ability to be spread through airborne particles (aerosols) under research conditions, this type of spread has not been documented among humans in a real-world setting, such as a hospital or household.

In addition to the disease threat, illegal alien gangs, and drug and human traffickers are making increasingly brazen attacks on Border Patrol officials and others they come into contact with. Agents have reported being targeted by automatic weapons coming from the Mexican side of the border, up to and including .50-caliber gunfire. An off-duty Border Patrol agent was shot and killed, and his father wounded, by two Mexican illegals earlier this month. The Mexicans have been apprehended and face capital murder charges.

Unless and until President Obama takes his Constitutional duty to protect and defend our borders seriously, he, his administration, and his Capitol Hill allies are leaving our nation and its citizens open to every form of danger. The fact that an Ebola outbreak might not lead to a nationwide epidemic would be little consolation to those families who lost loved ones just because this President refuses to do his job.

Alien Children in Maryland

In the Washington, D.C. area, our investigation determined that two organizations in neighboring Maryland are getting millions of dollars to accommodate the illegals.

These are the Lutheran Immigration & Refugee Service, headquartered in downtown Baltimore at 700 Light Street, and the Board of Child Care of the United Methodist Church, at 3300 Gaither Road in Milford Mill.

A third location has been proposed at the former Second Genesis Drug Treatment Facility, in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. However, the office of Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III says the County was never contacted about it. William J. McCarthy, executive director of Catholic Charities of Baltimore, has expressed interest in housing 50 children at St. Vincent’s Villa in Timonium. A call to Catholic Charities confirmed that an HHS Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) grant application has been submitted.

LIRS received grants for the UAC program in 2014 totaling $18,762,362, but has been in the UAC business for a long time, netting $71,283,452 since 2003. A princely sum, but this is not all. LIRS provides many other related services for HHS, receiving a total of $232,699,914 since 1995. This is big business, and its fancy downtown headquarters proves it.

But in the world of illegal alien resettlement, even LIRS is small change. The two largest UAC grant recipients in 2014 were the Southwest Key program–an organization connected to Obama through the National Council of La Raza—and Baptist Child and Family Services. Southwest Key received over $122 million, and BCFS received a whopping $280 million!

LIRS has no facilities housing illegals in Maryland, however. Its most recent tax return lists 18 Lutheran facilities and four others nationwide receiving “Refugee Resettlement” grants. An additional 26 facilities received grants for “Children Services” and “Immigration Justice”—whatever that is. Multiple calls for further clarification to LIRS Public Relations Officer, Miji Bell, were not returned.

LIRS Baltimore Headquarters Building
The Board of Childcare of the United Methodist Church (BOC) is a gated, fenced-in, multi-building complex at the end of a residential street in a quiet Baltimore County neighborhood. Until recently, it was exclusively a live-in facility for mentally disabled children, many with autism. There are accommodations for 59 youths, a school and recreational buildings on site. BOC also has a 16-bed facility on the Eastern Shore, a 50-bed facility in West Virginia, and 6 group homes in Maryland (4) and West Virginia (2) capable of housing a total of 28 youths.

Board of Childcare - Baltimore Facility
The Board of Childcare is new to the UAC program this year, according to its president, Laurie Anne Spagnola. It received its first grant in June 2014 for $2,387,200, and, unlike LIRS, is housing UACs at its Baltimore facility. Latino youths were observed entering and exiting dorm buildings in groups, usually with a faculty member, as in the photo below. Approximately 15 were observed, although Ms. Spagnola intimated that there were none.

BCC Children
Blinds were drawn in all windows as shown here.
Ms. Spagnola requested all questions be submitted by email to be answered by HHS. The questions were as follows:

  • How many UACs are housed at the facility? How long are they there for? There were males. Are there females too?
  • BOC is a school for mentally disabled children who live at the facility. Autistic children are given to violent outbursts that can be easily provoked. Is it not a conflict of interest to co-locate youths from a different culture, who do not speak our language, who may have gang affiliations or other criminal history, and at best have no experience with the troubled children living at the facility?
  • Is there not the potential for harm to the regular residents?
  • Do the parents of residents know that illegal alien youths are being housed with them?
  • Did parents get a chance to weigh in before the UACs came to the facility?

To date, HHS has not responded.

The blog Conservative Treehouse estimated that each child in the UAC program is budgeted to cost about $40,000. By that measure, LIRS has been provided with funds to manage 469 illegals while BOC can manage 60. Since no one BOC facility can handle that many with its current load of students, presumably they will be spread around the various facilities.

Making Illegals into Democrats

Throughout his presidency, Obama has aggressively sought amnesty for illegals. When an amnesty bill was not forthcoming from Congress, Obama began issuing directives to federal agencies that defied both federal law and the will of Congress. Deportations essentially ceased, and in 2013 over 36,000 criminal aliens, including 193 murderers, were released from jail. From 2012 to 2014, the number of illegals coming across the border turned into a flood.

In June 2012—without congressional authorization—President Obama created a program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Under DACA, illegals born after June 16, 1981 who arrived in the U.S. before their sixteenth birthday can obtain work permits and permission to remain in the U.S. two years, and reapply for an additional two years. Furthermore, DACA applicants:

  • Must have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007;
  • Were present in the U.S. as of June 15, 2012 and when they applied for deferred action;
  • Are currently in school, have graduated from high school, have obtained a GED or have been honorably discharged from the military;
  • Have not been convicted of certain criminal offenses;
  • Were 30 years of age or younger as of June 15, 2012.

The problem is that if someone is here illegally, how does the government verify many of the answers to these questions? In practical terms, DACA allows pretty much any illegal alien approximately 30 years of age or younger to stay in the U.S. indefinitely.

In any event, illegals began streaming in following the creation of DACA. An Inspections and Customs Enforcement (ICE) document leaked to the press revealed a dramatic acceleration in the number of unaccompanied children coming from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, a part of Central America also called the “Northern Triangle.” In 2011, ICE apprehended a total of 4,321 UAC from these countries. By 2013, that number had increased to 21,314. For 2014, the report projected 53,375 UACs crossing the border and 95,500 in 2015. Some estimates are much higher.

Fewer than 30 percent of these “children” are between 10 and 14 years old. Half are males from 15 to 17 years old. Many are gang members, including the notorious MS-13. Ninety-eight percent are released from custody with a “notice to appear” in court for deportation hearings. They rarely do. In 2013, only 0.1 percent were returned to their home countries.

Both the White House and the press have claimed this mass influx is the result of extreme violence in their home countries. But the ICE document credited a variety of factors, including economics, crime, job prospects, encouragement from family members in the U.S. and the perception that illegals would not be sent home if caught. This last reason is likely key. There has always been violence, crime and economic hardship in those countries. And while it may have gotten worse in the past few years, only one thing has materially changed: the perception that America will welcome them.

Almost all recent UAC entrants are from Northern Triangle countries. A quirk in the law that allows for immediate deportation of illegal youths from Mexico takes much longer for those from “non-contiguous countries,” increasing their chances to obtain asylum.

In a recent WND interview with U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), former Border Patrol agent Chris Cabrera, now Vice President of National Border Patrol Council Local 3307, said that unaccompanied children have been coached on how to game the system. “The ‘magic words’ are something along the lines of ‘asylum,’ or ‘political asylum’ or to say ‘fighting in my home country,’” he says. “They know these words…because we can’t send them home because it’s too dangerous back there.” He added, “Whether it’s the adults or the young kids, one thing we consistently hear is, ‘Obama will take care of us.’”

U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) confirmed this as well. In an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, Inhofe stated that through Obama’s DACA program, Obama is essentially telling them:

‘Come here, we’ll take care of you,’ and they all believe this… I talked to them individually… All of them were programmed to say that they had relatives here, they’re invited to come up here, they’re going to stay here—at the same time the HHS says, ‘We’re not going to send them back.’ So long as they have that assurance, more are coming in.

The New York Times recently made a compelling case for the argument that the Obama administration is indeed doing something to stem the border surge. The Times describes the Artesia, New Mexico detention facility—that same facility where rampant disease has broken out—as a site where “Homeland Security officials said the plan is for them to be held for no more than 10 days before being sent on flights back home.” This is not occurring however, because “Some migrants have refused to sign travel documents…after they insisted they would face harm at home.” Does our government require illegals’ permission to send them back?

But if the administration were really seeking to stem the flow, why are they trying to falsely reclassify illegals as “refugees,” even proposing expedited “refugee” processing in Honduras that will entirely eliminate the need for such people to shoot for the border? The New York Times long ago abandoned any shred of objectivity when it comes to protecting Obama. Perhaps in these centers, people really are being deported just to make it look real. Since no one is allowed access, and Border agents are under a gag order, we can only take the Times’ questionable word for it. But there is no indication from the border that this message is getting through. All estimates point to more illegals flooding the border. In July, the Obama administration raised its 2014 forecast of UACs to 90,000, up from January’s estimate of 60-65,000. For 2015, the estimate has been revised up to 145,000.

Welfare for Illegals

Judicial Watch discovered through FOIA requests that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has been aggressively promoting its food stamp program to illegals through the Mexican Consulate. Even as far back as 2006, American taxpayers financed television ads featuring the Mexican Consul urging illegals to sign up. In a 2012 letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsak, U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) wrote, “It defies rational thinking, for the United States—now dangerously $16 trillion in debt—to partner with foreign governments to help us place more foreign nationals on American welfare…”

Illegal youths are also being offered “family planning services” by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This is a slap in the face to those concerned about the key issues of abortion and illegal immigration. In an HHS press release, the agency states:

Residential care providers are required to provide or arrange for the program required services in a manner that is sensitive to the age, culture, religion, dietary needs, native language, sexual orientation, gender identity, and other important individual needs of each UAC. All services and assessments are required to be administered for all UAC even if they are in ORR [Office of Refugee Resettlement] custody for a short period of time. Residential care providers are required to have the capacity to provide services in the language of the majority of UAC in their facility speak.

Eric Holder’s Justice Department has promised legal assistance to underage illegals. Holder calls it “taking a historic step to strengthen our justice system and protect the rights of the most vulnerable members of society.” But it is plain his plan will do just the opposite. In addition to subverting the rule-of-law, such programs will further encourage illegals to come to the U.S.

As of March 2014, the latest data available, 642,685 aliens had been accepted for DACA status. These people have not been idle. A June 2014 survey of DACA participants conducted by the American Immigration Council yielded the following results:

DACA Participants First Two Years
Found New Job 59%
Obtained Driver’s License 57%
Opened Bank Account 49%
Obtained 1st Credit Card 33%
Obtained Health Care 21%
Source: American Immigration Council

These are not children. Children do not obtain driver’s licenses, jobs, credit cards, etc., and because of Motor Voter, many of those receiving driver’s licenses may now be registered to vote. While under DACA, legal status is only temporary and the aliens cannot vote legally, but some might vote anyway, as illegals in many states already have.

Democrats are keeping up the pressure, hoping to pass some kind of amnesty legislation. Activists have been aggressively working to entrench illegals into communities nationwide. It will be that much harder to dislodge them if that time ever comes. Meanwhile, activists lobby for more benefits, and build momentum for amnesty.

Indeed, the American Immigration Council urges DACA participants to reapply, now that the program is two years old, and laments that “90 percent said that someone in their family would benefit [from amnesty]. “Immigration is a family affair,” they write, “and providing relief to family members is critical to the success of DACAmented young adults.”[1] So having obtained a reprieve for younger illegals, these activists build a chorus for letting them all stay.

Indeed, the media focus on unaccompanied children is a bald deception. Most are not unaccompanied, coming with one or both parents, or as part of an entire family. Along with the 50,000 plus illegal unaccompanied youths caught coming across the border, so far in 2014 there have been another 240,000 of all ages. And these were only the ones who were caught. Estimates of those evading capture range from 30% to 90% of the total.[2] That would mean that in 2014 alone, somewhere between an additional 120,000 to 2.6 million got through.

With the overt assistance of the Obama administration, the left is replicating on a much larger scale what they accomplished in the 1980s, when one fifth of El Salvador’s population—over 1.1 million people—emigrated illegally to the U.S. In that earlier case, the left, in league with the liberation theology[3] arm of the Catholic Church, established a form of underground railroad that terminated in “sanctuary churches” throughout the U.S.

Some 262,000 Salvadorans settled in the Washington, D.C. area, and now represent 32.4 percent of the local Hispanic population, proportionally more than anywhere else in the country. They brought with them large numbers of the ultraviolent Salvadoran gang, MS-13. AIM discussed this history in the special report, CASA de Maryland, the Illegal’s ACORN.

This most recent diaspora has also been assisted by some of the same religious groups, but it is a different world today. Whereas in the 1980s these groups operated in defiance of U.S. policy, today they are federal government contractors. And it is big business. The Unaccompanied Alien Children Program (UAC) has been around for decades.

Responsibility was shifted from INS to the HHS Office of Refugee Resettlement in 2003. Since then HHS has spent almost $1.9 billion on its UAC program. The chart below shows annual spending growth. What was once a modest program of a few million a year has grown exponentially since 2011. A total of $671.3 million has been spent so far this year, more than double the 2013 level.

Another thing is clear from this chart. These 2014 awards were not made last week. Organizations must apply, fill out extensive paperwork and wait for a response. Agencies knew well in advance that this flood of illegals was on the way. Indeed, the UAC program projected 65,000 minors for 2014, and sent out requests for proposals in January in anticipation.

Republicans claim that illegals are being shipped disproportionately to GOP states. This is apparently true, based both on actual sites currently in operation and those under consideration. The table below was taken from information compiled by Numbers USA and published on Google Maps on July 31, 2014. Texas is currently hosting illegals in 42 facilities with an additional 12 under consideration—by far the most of any state. Together, Texas and Arizona have more facilities than all the Democrat-controlled states put together. However, those states are ground zero for illegal border crossers.

Key: Red triangle = operating; Yellow teardrop = proposed; Blue stickpin = refused
These are temporary facilities. According to HHS, between January 1 and July 7, 2014, 30,340 minors had been placed in foster homes throughout all 50 states, Washington, DC and the U.S. Virgin Islands, as shown in the table below. These placements were made without the various state governments’ knowledge or consent.

To serve Obama’s agenda, unaccompanied illegal children have been encouraged to embark on a long, dangerous journey to the border, subject to every form of predation. Once they are here, Border Patrol agents report that MS-13 and other violent gangs are actually infiltrating border facilities to “recruit, enlist and pressure” unaccompanied youths into gang membership.

The national media have been running almost constant interference for Obama on the border crisis, hyping the “for the children” angle, and studiously overlooking the hundreds of thousands of adults that are crossing with them. Now confronted with irrefutable evidence of MS-13 gang activity among the illegals, The Washington Post claims it’s better to keep them here! The paper claims that deporting them only makes the problem worse in the long run.

Obama’s solution to the manufactured crisis on the border is to grant these illegals “refugee” status. In so doing they instantly become legalized. In a recent meeting with leaders of the Northern Triangle countries, Obama proposed an expedited process whereby Honduran “refugees” could skip the dangerous trip through Mexico and be brought directly to the U.S. at taxpayer expense.

Barely able to contain his glee, U.S. Representative Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL), stated in a July 25 interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe that “We are going to sit down and we’re going to negotiate additional terms and avenues the President can use and prosecutorial discretion, and I think we can get three or four or maybe even five million people [legalized by executive order].”

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) countered that President Obama has no power to declare amnesty for illegals, and that Congress needs to bar the President from spending any money on amnesty proposals. “This goes to the very core of law,” Sessions told Breitbart News. He added, “… if the President does such a thing, there is no moral authority to enforce any law in the future and all of our laws will be weakened.” Sessions called for a “public refutation” of Obama’s orders that are “plainly and utterly unlawful and unconstitutional.”

Before their summer recess, the House of Representatives hammered out a bill that would end DACA. A very weak bill proposed earlier with the support of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) was vigorously opposed by conservatives, who demanded that the legislation would include language that would end DACA. While this new proposal is much better, the Democrat-controlled Senate left town for their summer break without glancing at it. Passing any legislation with teeth will have to await the November elections and, hopefully a new, less corrupt Senate.

In the meantime, Dr. Vliet reports that the Centers for Disease Control is quietly setting up Ebola Quarantine Centers in 20 cities across the USA. This is the same CDC, she notes, which has recently been under fire for mishandling deadly pathogens, including smallpox and anthrax.


[1] Note that this DC-based non-profit misapplies the word “immigrant” to include illegal aliens. According to Webster’s dictionary, “immigrant” is defined as “a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence.” An “alien,” on the other hand, whether legal or illegal, is a person “relating, belonging, or owing allegiance to another country or government.” A resident alien can be considered an immigrant because the term describes a person who has established legal residency. An illegal alien is not an immigrant because his or her residency plans cannot be defined. He/she is breaking the law and thus cannot confidently claim residency. An illegal alien is simply an individual from a foreign country who is in the U.S. illegally.

[2] Frederick County, MD Sheriff Chuck Jenkins and others made a fact-finding tour to McAllen, Texas to witness the illegal alien crisis first-hand and speak with border officials in July. According to Sheriff Jenkins, the Border Patrol claims it has captured about 70 percent of border crossers this year. However, former Border Patrol supervisory agent Zach Taylor has said that the Border Patrol is only catching about 10 percent of the illegals.

[3] Liberation Theology is Marxism applied to the Catholic religion. It was first described with that name by Peruvian Catholic Priest, Gustavo Gutiérrez, who wrote a book promoting it, titled, A Theology of Liberation: History, Politics, Salvation.

Alinsky Still Alive and Well at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

By: Marion Algier

Every year the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, or nerd prom as it has been dubbed, is held in Washington D.C. where the President is supposed to display his entertaining side opposite a major comedian who is asked to more or less host and either make or break his or her career. Over the weekend for 2013 it was Conan O’Brian, who attacked CNN, Fox News, the Washington Hilton and Mitt Romney but pretty much soft-balled the President, who broke tradition and chose to enter to rap music instead of the traditional “Hail to the Chief”… too stuffy for our too hip president and his Hollywood pals. In fact the Correspondents’ Dinner has gone so Hollywood that Tom Brokaw (and others) said ‘no thanks’ to attending this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. “That dinner, as it has been constituted for the past several years, is saying, ‘We’re Versailles. The rest of you eat cake.’, said Brokaw.

In reviewing the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner I wrote Alinsky Alive and Well in the White House. And although a bit more subdued this year, the Obama format followed the Alinsky primer, Rules for Radicals. President Obama used Alinsky’s Tactic #5 to perfection: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”

In 2012 the AP wrote:

It’s not often that we get to see the most powerful man in the world tell jokes about eating dogs, craving cigarettes and imposing his rumored “radical socialist agenda” on the country. And yet, last night in Washington, D.C., we were treated to just that…

This year the most poignant example was Obama’s comment: “I’m Not The Strapping Young Muslim Socialist I Used To Be!”

“Sniff! Our Marxist Islamist is getting old…” ;) TMH, the NoisyRoom

President Barack Obama poked fun at the media, especially Fox News; the History Channel; his critics: including Congress, Sheldon Adelson, Rush Limbaugh, Sen.Mitch McConnell, Rep. Michele Bachmann… and himself using the Alinsky model

Some Obama highlights:

“I know Republicans are still sorting out what happened in 2012, but one thing they all agree on is they need to do a better job reaching out to minorities,” Obama said.

“And look, call me self-centered, but I can think of one minority they could start with. Hello? Think of me as a trial run, you know?” he said.

“These days, I look in the mirror and I have to admit, I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be,” Obama said. “Time passes. You get a little gray.”

“I’m also hard at work on plans for the Obama Library, and some have suggested that we put it in my birthplace, but I’d rather keep it in the United States,” he said.

“Did anybody not see that joke coming?” (Show of hands.) “Only Gallup? Maybe Dick Morris?”

“One senator who has reached across the aisle recently is Marco Rubio, but I don’t know about 2016. I mean, the guy has not even finished a single term in the Senate and he thinks he’s ready to be president,” Obama joked. “Kids these days.”

“I know CNN has taken some knocks lately, but the fact is I admire their commitment to cover all sides of a story, just in case one of them happens to be accurate.”

“Some of my former advisors have switched over to the dark side. For example, David Axelrod now works for MSNBC, which is a nice change of pace since MSNBC used to work for David Axelrod.”

“The History Channel is not here. I guess they were embarrassed about the whole Obama-is-a-devil thing. Of course, that never kept Fox News from showing up. They actually thought the comparison was not fair — to Satan. “

“I still make rookie mistakes. Like, I’m out in California, we’re at a fundraiser, we’re having a nice time. I happen to mention that Kamala Harris is the best-looking attorney general in the country. As you might imagine, I got trouble when I got back home. Who knew Eric Holder was so sensitive?”

“Some things are beyond my control. For example, this whole controversy about Jaz-Z going to Cuba — it’s unbelievable. I’ve got 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one.That’s another rap reference, Bill. I’ll let you know.”

“I’m taking my charm offensive on the road – a Texas barbeque with Ted Cruz, a Kentucky bluegrass concert with Rand Paul, and a book-burning with Michele Bachmann.”

“Groucho Marx once said — and, Senator Cruz, that’s Groucho Marx, not Karl. That’s the other guy. Groucho Marx once told an audience, “Before I speak, I have something important to say.”

One of the funnier more light-hearted moments of Obama’s routine came near the beginning of his turn at the podium. Mr. Obama remarked that the presidency can take its toll on anyone, and he realizes he’ll need a burst of energy and some new approaches to energize his second term. He and his aides have talked about that, he said.

“We were willing to try anything. So we borrowed one of Michelle’s tricks,” said Obama.

My take has not changed and is still that Obama played it cool and delivered a perfect Saul Alinsky Speech. If you are concerned about America and want to help turn things around or if you are politically unaware or uninvolved and you want to get a better handle of what is going on, if you haven’t already, you need to read Saul Alinsky’s: Rules for Radicals plus understand the Cloward and Piven strategy; both major parts of Obama’s playbook. Mix in a little George Soros string pulling and you are headed in the right direction. Then do a little reading and digging into who BHO’s family and friends are and who he is connected to and everything will come into focus!

I think Alinsky would have been proud!

“Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.” – Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky

Obama helped fund ‘Alinsky Academy’: “The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, provided startup funding and later capital to the Midwest Academy…. Obama sat on the Woods Fund board alongside William Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization…. ‘Midwest describes itself as ‘one of the nation’s oldest and best-known schools for community organizations, citizen organizations and individuals committed to progressive social change.’… Midwest teaches Alinsky tactics of community organizing.”

Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky: “True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties…. Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power.

Obama is also an Alinskyite…. Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project…. Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing.

While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer.” (By Richard Poe, 11-27-07)

The Alinsky Tactics (and of course they can be combined) from the Progressive Bible Rules for Radicals:

“Tactics are those conscious deliberate acts by which human beings live with each other and deal with the world around them. … Here our concern is with the tactic of taking; how the Have-Nots can take power away from the Haves.” p.126

Always remember the first rule of power tactics (pages 127-134):

1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”

2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people. When an action or tactic is outside the experience of the people, the result is confusion, fear and retreat…. [and] the collapse of communication.

3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”

6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”

7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time….”

8. “Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.”

9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”

10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.”

11. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside… every positive has its negative.”

12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’…

I think Alinsky would have been proud of Obama’s Correspondence Dinner speech… of his whole presidency.

Using Alinsky’s Tactic #5 to perfection “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon: It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage”, President Obama took everything that his opponents: the right in general, patriots, the GOP, people paying attention, etc. are fighting, bringing to the forefront and trying to educate the American people on and ridiculed them by ridiculing each point one by one through making it a joke… thereby making it look silly to the low and uninformed that anyone would question something that was so trivial that the President himself would make fun of.

In 2012 Obama belittled the topics of eligibility; the hot mic incident where he essentially told the Russians to wait until he was re-elected and would have unbridled power to do what he wants; made light of eating dogs; threw in his digs at Romney for being rich and an elitist, at Gingrich for losing the GOP Primary and Hillary for drinking and partying in Cartagena; high-fived all his Hollywood celebrity friends; and basically told us to hang onto our hats for a radical second term… including reinstating ObamaCare if it was struck down and that it would be raining men during his next term (interpreted by most in the know as paratroopers and other military, including UN troops, on American soil).

In 2013 Obama hit the topics of his purported Muslim faith, missing college transcripts, and questionable birth certificate from several angles as well as his socialistic agenda and dislike for the conservative media and conservatives in Congress. He also made fun of the issue of his friends Jay-Z and wife Beyoncé traveling to Cuba on a special visa, when Americans have been prohibited from going there for decades, as well as his campaign to make the results of Sequestration as painful for the public as possible while blaming it on the Republicans using a reference to the White House Easter Egg roll.

Obama is the master… he told us in 2008 and wrote in his books (Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance and The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream (Vintage) (as well as in books about him) all that he was planning to do but most of America wasn’t listening and like with Hitler (in Mein Kampf (German Edition)… nobody read his books; now several like Dreams from My Father (try to borrow an vintage copy to read)have been edited and re-written. But again, Barack Hussein Obama’s weekend comedy routine at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was generally only funny to those who have not been paying attention or who have continued to drink the Kool-Aid.

EXCLUSIVE! Benghazi GUN-RUNNING & The Russia, China, Iran, Syria PIPELINE

Exposing Benghazi Baloney

Benghazi… The Cover-Up That Just Keeps Growing

After a Tuesday morning meeting with U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, Senators John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Kelly Ayotte said concerns they had about Rice’s misleading statements regarding the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya which resulted in the deaths of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans have grown, not diminished.

McCain, R-AZ, had said he might oppose Rice’s nomination to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of State because Rice should have known the statements she made in interviews just a few days after the Sept. 11 attack were false.

In those interviews, Rice repeated the Party line about the attack having emerged from a protest over an anti-Islamist video. Rice apparently parroted that narrative in order to satisfy the needs of Obama’s re-election campaign. The narrative, much of which had already been repeatedly trumpeted during the Democratic National Convention was, al Qaeda had been decimated and was losing ground, public sentiments in the Middle East toward the United States had improved, and the attack was in no way connected to Obama’s foreign policy. It was later learned there the attack was a well-organized terror assault by an al Qaeda related group timed for the anniversary of 9/11.

David Petraeus, former director of the CIA, testified under oath before a congressional investigative committee that from the beginning the CIA had advised the White House that the Benghazi attack was an organized assault by al Qaeda linked terrorists. Petraeus also testified that the approved CIA report was later changed to diminish terrorist involvement.

After meeting with Rice, Graham, R-SC, said: “The bottom line is that I’m more disturbed than I was before … about how four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya by Ambassador Rice does not to do justice to the reality at the time.” Rep King admits that CIA approved Rice’s talking points: See Video.

Plus now we find out that Susan Rice is worth $44 million. She’s made a fortune off of oil companies that do business in Iran. No joke!! Susan Rice is now under fire from left for investments in Keystone pipeline firm.

And of course the MSM (lamestream bias media) keeps trying to take us all back to the Petraeus sex scandal. Those paying attention realized quickly after the Petraeus Resignation that there were several cover-ups going on. Now the questions seems not to be if, but how many, including the cover-up of the cover-ups hidden from the public until after the 2012 election.

Benghazi GUN-RUNNING & The Russia, China, Iran, Syria PIPELINE

Conservative Report Online – by Chip Jones on November 16, 2012:

While the country intellectually “channel surfs” between the Petraeus Sex Scandal, the questions of voter fraud, the imminent resignations of administration officials and the ever present pall of Benghazi, let’s put on the table the yet unexplained but critical geo-political underpinnings of the burgeoning scandal behind Benghazi.

Much like everything in the Middle East, the story behind the story that’s behind the story of our “embassy” in Benghazi is one of global petrochemicals. But before we get there, we need to review a little history of our “embassy” in Benghazi.

First off, it’s not an Embassy.

The USA’s Libyan embassy is located in the capital city of Tripoli—not Benghazi. The compound at Benghazi is no more than a CIA facility set-up to arm the ‘rebels’ who ultimately overthrew Moammar Qadaffi. It is important to note, as it turns out, the Libyan ‘rebels’ were substantially Al Qaeda.

After the United States’ successful stint at “leading from behind” in the Libyan campaign, this CIA “gun store” shifted purposes. Now (or at least on Sept. 11), the CIA “gun store” was being used for a similar purpose.

Instead of arming the Libyan rebels, it was repurposed to arm ‘rebels’ in Syria who are opposing the Assad Regime. Given Assad’s jaded history of human rights violations, this, on the surface, has some appeal.

Do not view Syria through rose colored glasses, and from the focal point of a “feel good policy,” but consider the real interest at stake: Syria is the holder of one of the largest natural gas reserves on the planet. As with all large petrochemical reserves, there is a line of folks who would like to get their greedy furnaces wrapped around them.

Enter two factions:

On one side, there is the coalition comprised of Russia, China, Iran and Syria, who intends to harvest the natural gas and build a pipeline to Georgia, freeing the sale of this precious natural gas to the petrochemical guzzling giants of Russia and China.

On the other side is Turkey & Qatar, who are backing the Syrian rebels in an attempt to profit from the sale of that same natural gas via pipeline to the Mediterranean.

And in the most clandestine of ways, Israel is partnering with Turkey, Qatar & the Syrian ‘rebels’ forming the most unholy of unholy alliances. They are throwing their lot in because the devil of the unknown Syrian is better than the devil of the known Iran, who would undoubtedly use the proceeds of this pipeline to complete its nuclear program.

Israel’s role has been confined to simply amassing a troop buildup on the Golan Heights that border Syria. This coupled with a bellicose Turkey on its other border leaves Assad’s Syria strapped militarily, necessitated by facing the two threats on its opposing borders, and leaving them vulnerable to the Syrian rebels who can slowly pick their bones.

What is interesting, but certainly not a coincidence, is that this very plan for the destabilization of Syria was developed at the Brookings Institute, the DC think tank.

Now, let’s “fast forward” to Benghazi and the American role in this geo-political chess game, other than just the Brookings strategy.

It is well known that President Obama’s only true personal friend on the world stage is the Prime Minister of Turkey. So, we need to look carefully at who the direct-link is, arming the Syrian rebels, and that is Turkey.

Does Turkey have advanced-weapon manufacturers? No, of course not. Does Turkey even have a wealthy central government? No.

In steps the Prime Minister of Turkey’s good buddy, President Obama. Paraphrasing and shortening, I assume words of this kind passed between the PM of Turkey & Barack Obama, “Mr. Prime Minister, I happen to have this CIA ‘gun store’ in Benghazi….”

The CIA compound in Benghazi was collecting weapons from Libyan’s, who were once loyal to Qadaffi. The CIA was then rendering the weapons ‘as outdated, in disrepair, or inoperable’—thus creating a constant stream of seized-weapons to satisfy NATO, and shipping the “operable weapons” to Syria via Turkey, through clandestine channels.

Ladies and Gentlemen, here’s the rub. Take a quick guess who the Syrian rebels are?

Those of you who answered: “Al Qaeda,” would be correct. So, what we have here is the second instance where the CIA facility in Benghazi was used to arm Al Qaeda.

And by the textbook definition, the act of arming your enemies is called Treason.
