Making Americans Sick to Achieve a Political Majority

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

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
AskMarion

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

Ask Marion

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.

Time for First Nations to lay it on the line

Policy Advisor for The Heartland Institute
Research Associate for The Frontier Centre for Public Policy
Osoyoos BC
IsItOrganic.ca

Getting kicked off a flight for being inebriated must’ve been troubling for New Democrat MP Romeo Saganash. But it was even more troubling for me.

Put aside for the moment the fact that Saganash is a tax-and-spender I’d never vote for. As a member of the House of Commons he represents all Canadians. He also represents all First Nations people across this great land. So it was with great skepticism that I listened to his rationalization that he was “greatly affected” by the death of NDP leader Jack Layton, and worn down by his campaign to succeed Layton. In the end, Saganash only revealed how completely unfit he is for any such leadership position.

It’s time to stand up and be a man! Everyone, and I mean everyone, is looking at you Saganash. And we’re willing to forgive you – even those of us who’d never vote for you – as long as you come clean.

It should not escape Saganash that there is a conspicuous lack of First Nations people like him involved in Canadian politics. Why? Simple. Because smart natives are busy running their band offices collecting six-digit salaries as chiefs, executive assistants to chiefs, and whole bevy of other made-up position that don’t exist in the real world.

With few exceptions, Canada’s reserves waste human talent and generate countless drug-and-alcohol addicted and perpetually unemployed First-Nations people who find themselves trapped on the wrong end of a nepotistic system that denies them the right to even own property.

By giving First Nations people what we euphemistically refer to as “self government,” we have given rise to an inherently corrupt system and, most ironically, have guaranteed there will never be a First Nations prime minister in this country, never mind a cabinet minister worthy of note.

Where, pray tell, is the First Nations’ equivalent to Barack Obama coming up the ranks? Or Alan West for that matter? Is he sitting in Parliament? Perhaps working at the provincial level? If he is, or if she is, it would come as news to me because I have not heard of such an individual since Elijah Harper, the Cree member of Manitoba’s Legislative Assembly who voted against the Meech Lake Accord back in 1990!

People like Saganash are the exception to the quintessentially Canadian patriarchal rule that First Nations people belong on reserves. He has every reason to be proud of his achievements OUTSIDE of the totalitarian, supremacist control of Canada’s racist Indian Act. And even though he lost his leadership bid, he nonetheless has every reason to be proud of having mounted a campaign that everyone − again, even people like me who’d never vote for him or his party – followed with interest.

However, having spoken with more than a few successful chiefs, the sad fact of the matter is that none of them, and none of their top people, have plans to ever seek higher office. Why bother? They already hold the highest offices in the land, with a potent combination of political and free-enterprise authority that you literally cannot find anywhere, unless you go to the Third World or Middle East.

Not since medieval times, during the age of feudalism, has such hereditary, undemocratic power even existed in Western society. And so, the good chiefs like Robert Louis of the Westbank First Nations and Clarence Louis of the Osoyoos Indian Band, remain forever ensconced in their fiefdoms, never to grace the rest of Canada with their wisdom, foresight and enthusiasm. Never.

Instead, were stuck with the likes of Saganash who, in addition to being a tax-and-spend socialist, would have us believe Jack Layton’s death over a year ago was worth getting drunk over. Pathetic.

Canada’s First Nations deserve better. So does the rest of Canada.

CBS Ohio Focus Group ‘Undecideds’ vote for Romney 6-2 over Obama

By: Jeffrey Klein
Political Buzz Examiner

Last night, during the third and final presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney, several unexpected and noteworthy things happened, which took most political watchers by total surprise.

First, and most immediately apparent, was the fact that Mitt Romney all but ignored the flaming Benghazi-gate torch, even though everyone, including the president, was expecting him to finish the fight that began during the second debate last Thursday night, when moderator and CNN host Candy Crowley infamously aided Barack Obama’s claim that he did, in fact, label the incident an ‘act of terror,’ during this ‘Rose Garden speech’ the next day.

Why?

To immediately create an ‘anti-climax,’ and drain the adrenaline out of Barack Obama.

Then, Gov. Romney carefully agreed with President Obama on a number of ‘inarguable’ foreign policy issues, fostering a surprising calm with the unsuspecting president, right before he cleverly pivoted the conversation back to the economy–the undisputed ‘hot button’ for a vast majority of voters in the upcoming election.

When Romney deliberately stated that the president’s failed foreign policy strategy had not only squandered the international reputation of the United States, but by running up four years of massive budget deficits, exploding national debt and impending, sacrificial military budget cuts, quickly drew the ‘disoriented’ Obama into deep water–without a life preserver.

This caused the president to ‘come off the rails’ and begin throwing ‘barbs’ at Romney, in an attempt to ‘belittle’ him before the national audience, while alternatively locking onto him with a ‘death stare’ as the Governor was attempting to address his points.

Great optics, Mr. President–just what ‘Undecided’ voters want to see.

In an infantile effort to parry Romney’s promise to curtail the budget cuts to preserve the ability of our military to protect and defend our country, Obama mocked the Governor’s apparent lack of knowledge–by referring to a legion of unused battle tanks parked in the Middle East desert, saying we don’t need anymore–because of these things called aircraft carriers, which have jet fighters that take off and land on them.

Too bad for Barack Obama that it sent a clear signal to the thousands of high-skilled, well-paid workers in Ohio–where the Abrams M1A1 battle tanks are manufactured.

And, the president’s snarky remarks probably didn’t make any points with the folks who live and work in Norfolk, Virginia–home to the world’s largest U.S. Navy base.

Finally, Governor Romney chose to ignore the Libya situation, during the only debate dedicated to ‘foreign policy,’ because it was not his objective to roundly defeat the president, which he did in the first debate–but rather, to project a balanced, elegant ‘presidential’ persona in what he knew may be the last, ‘true’ experience the American people would have with him before the election.

As a tactical bonus, Barack Obama’s narcissism and desperation caused him to reveal his arrogant, inner ‘bully,’ which will likely hack precious points from his ‘likability’ score–the only ‘edge’ he had left with ‘Independent’ and ‘Undecided’ voters.

And, as fate would have it, CBS News was right on the ball, by having organized an 8-person ‘Undecided Voter’ focus group to gauge the outcome of the debate, in Steubenville, Ohio, the most critical battleground state, according to Ed Morrissey’s Hot Air blog today.

Watching the 39 second CBS News video segment archived to the left, wherein ashen-faced CBS Anchors Norah O’Donnell and Charlie Rose solemnly watch the group vote giving Gov. Mitt Romney a decisive 6 to 2 win over President Barack Obama is very satisfying.

The entire 3:19 minute CBS News video is accessible from the link in Ed’s article.

It was my pleasure–you are all very welcome.

Not Your Typical 14 Year-Old, Malala Yousafzai

By: Imran O Kazmi

Malala Yousafzai

This is a short and sweet article, if you may call it such, in the avalanche of news reports and opinions on this brave kid… more of a critical look at what happened, why and what’s to come.

Much is being spoken today of the young girl from Swat, Pakistan – Malala Yousafzai, a 14 year-old who faced bullets just to fight for the right of the girl-child for education. While many genuinely condemn the attackers, the TTP (Tehrik e Taliban of Pakistan), many stand to gain profit politically or otherwise by aligning with Malala, after all she’s the hottest news topic! And anybody who’s somebody is talking about her. Why such a sudden sense of attachment with a girl who’s one of tens of millions in a similar fate, day in and day out? One is compelled to ask sans any reasonable answer.

Few are aware that TTP or not, the fate of girls like Malala in Pakistan is doomed from birth, a gender biased society that rewards “sons” and frowns at newborn girls to the extent that a woman may have to give birth half a dozen or more times to appease her husband and in-laws with a prized “boy” and if not, she’s either tortured and/or a new wife is brought in her place. In such a backdrop, we have sweet Malala, born in the summer of 1997 to Ziauddin Yousafzai… a poet, school owner and educational activist and lucky she was for in her environment, girls are often denied education and are made to work like slave labor at their parents’ home first and then the same is repeated at their husband’s home. Boys don’t fare significantly better either, poverty is almost raison d’etre of the masses. Few are aware that boys go through sodomization at the “Madressah” or Islamic Religious School oft times (much like the Church scandals, only worse) and are made to work as mechanics under tons of trailers, trucks or cars from a tender age, whereas in the US or Europe or MidEast they play with toys at home or playschool. Ironically, Islam has from its inception, advocated education or “Ilm” as the foundation for all Muslims, regardless of any discrimination and it is in the name of the SAME Islam that these girls and boys are persecuted by the TTP!

Malala grew up with the loving encouragement of her family, into an educational activist and blogger from the tender age of 11. Since 2009, she started writing for the BBC courtesy of her dad’s journalist friend who wanted a school girl’s view of the prevailing academic atmosphere. Later on, Adam B. Ellick of the New York Times made a documentary, with appearances at press conferences, on the status quo which resulted in the wrath of the TTP as death threats were made to her dad, Ziauddin. Seeing all this mayhem and madness, Malala decided to pursue politics so she could save her country.

Through the wicked circle of poverty, illiteracy and narrow minded perception of so-called custodians of Islam, the TTP, Malala met a bullet on October 9, 2012. While riding home in a bus from school, they were intercepted by masked gunmen who asked for her by name and threatened that if they hid her, they would shoot all of them. They shot her twice in the neck and head, and left her to die.

Today she’s still on a ventilator at the Army Hospital amidst “talks” of airlifting her to Dubai or Germany, something that should have been done much earlier. However, Malala is still not out of danger as I write these words and my fingers tremble to write what if she were to be no more? And then I remember the Swat school girlfriend of Malala, who, after her assassination attempt said, “Every girl in Swat is Malala. We will educate ourselves. We will win. They can’t defeat us,” – and I could feel hope somewhere in the dark corners of my mind.

Back in 2009, when Malala was learning to speak her mind from the beautiful yet chained frontiers of NWFP/Swat, I wrote a blog: http://learningpays.wordpress.com/, aimed specifically at using education to eradicate terror and poverty from the masses. It is “the” future were someone to action it.

Few takers, but an assassination attempt seems to have momentarily woken up all around, for how long I ask? And to what end?
