Obama’s Asymmetrical Warfare Against The United States

Western Free Press ^ | 07/27/2015 | PoliticallyShort

Posted on 7/27/2015, 8:07:13 PM by PoliticallyShort

Last year a retired Border Patrol Officer by the name of Zach Taylor went on camera to explain the driving force behind the unprecedented surge in illegal immigration happening on our southern border. Taylor went on to note that what was happening at our border was not due to a spur of the moment event, or “a humanitarian crisis”, but asymmetrical warfare. The surge we saw at the border was a part of a larger, more chilling event that served one purpose and one purpose only, to show our enemies that our southern border had been compromised and the government wouldn’t do a damn thing about it.

Will, Krauthammer: GOP Base Frustration ‘Mistaken,’ Cruz Hypocritical in McConnell Attack

Breitbart ^ | 7/27/2015 | Ian Hanchett

Posted on 7/27/2015, 9:20:06 PM by VinL

Columnists George Will and Charles Krauthammer agreed with Texas Senator and Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on the substance of his opposition to the Export-Import Bank, but argued that the Republican base’s frustration is “mistaken” and that Cruz engaged in “an act of rather amazing hypocrisy” by accusing McConnell of lying ….

Will said, “The Republican base is frustrated. I understand it. It’s to be sympathized with, but it’s mistaken, fundamentally. Their view is, you have the butchers of Planned Parenthood, you can’t do anything about them. You have the Ex-Im Bank, which is, they think, crony capitalism, and I agree, can’t do anything about that. Why can’t anything get done? The paradox is this is something getting done in Washington. There’s three important bills this summer, the highway bill, the Ex-Im Bank extension, and the trade authorization. They have large, overlapping, but disparate constituencies. And this is a transactional business, you vote for this, I’ll vote for that. Give me this, I’ll do that. … This is actually Washington functioning. It’s not producing the results that conservatives want, not producing the results I want, but it certainly is Washington working as it’s designed to work.”

He added, “the Ex-Im Bank survives for the same reason a lot of weapons systems survive. They spread the loans like honey across toast all across the country, so that every Congressional district and Senate has a beneficiary of the Ex-Im Bank. Planned Parenthood is going to get a vote on defunding that. The problem is, there aren’t enough votes too do it. There aren’t enough to get 60 for cloture. So, it’s going to be voted on, and it’s going to sail right on.”

Krauthammer argued that “Ted Cruz also wants to be Trump after Trump, because (snip)

Satan, the father of all lies, there is no truth in him. He is deceiving and cunning, often appearing as an angel of light. An increase in satanic activity is a sign of the last days. Evil and sin will increase and abound, the wicked will flourish.

Yes, Satan is very cunning and deceptive, yet for many, they cannot even see what is right before their very eyes. Take for instance the Satanic Temple, they actually claim that they do not believe in Satan. Yet they build statues and idols depicting Satan and his demons. They hold rituals and events in praise and honor of Satan!

Either they are lying or they are very deceived! The works that they are performing are satanic and in worship of Satan himself. Whether they wish to believe it or not, this is exactly the case, a matter of fact.

Sarah Palin funds John Boehner Republican opponents

Houston Politics Examiner ^ | July 28, 2015 | Mark R. Whittington

Posted on 7/27/2015, 1:03:57 PM by Marcus

The Conservatives4Palin blog noted on Sunday that former Alaska governor and presidential candidate Sarah Palin has arranged for SarahPac to provide funding to the reelection campaigns of Republican House members who opposed re-electing John Boehner as House Speaker. As the New York Times reported at the time, Boehner suffered the embarrassment of having 25 members of his caucus vote to deny him a new term as speaker. The Republican majority in the House was large enough to have Boehner reelected by a comfortable margin in any case

Top Trump Aide: Huckabee Right on Holocaust Comments (Michael Cohen)

newsmax.com ^ | Courtney Coren

Posted on 7/27/2015, 11:42:37 AM by RoosterRedux

One of Donald Trump’s top advisers says that he doesn’t think that the real estate mogul finds the comment by Mike Huckabee about the Iran deal offensive.

“I don’t think so,” Michael Cohen, executive president of the Trump organization, told Chris Cuomo on “New Day” on CNN on Monday morning about whether or not Trump was offended by the statement. Huckabee said an interview with Breitbart on Saturday that by pushing for the Iranian nuclear deal, President Barack Obama “will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.”

Trump’s campaign head told CNN that Trump supports Huckabee’s statement because “we’ve been there.”

“My father is a Holocaust survivor, and I can tell you, there’s that old statement, ‘Never again,’” Cohen said.

The United States Should Ditch NATO and Follow Britain out of Europe

New York Observer (Opinion) ^ | July 27, 2015 | Bernie Quigley

Posted on 7/27/2015, 12:50:13 PM by Navy Patriot

Suppose we had a war and Britain didn’t come? Which is sort of what happened in Syria when President Obama, on the advice of Samantha Power, United States Ambassador to the United Nations, declared that we must go in now, this afternoon. No time to discuss. Much as we had heard before in the maelstrom which is the Middle East. Surely, our allies, by which I think we mean Europe, the Atlantic Alliance or “the West,” led of course by our trusty sidekick, Britain, will fall in line. But overnight, the British Parliament voted to just say no.

And we thought we could always count on the Brits, ever since President Franklin Roosevelt sat quietly in conquest at Yalta, with Joseph Stalin and Winston Churchill on either side in February 1945. The iconic photo would mark the ages.

Or not. Possibly it would only mark the WW II post-war period, which might be about finished by now, as the conquistador’s dominion classically runs roughly only 70 years.

Next year we celebrate, if that is the correct phrase, the 70th anniversary of the publication of the “long telegram,” an icon as famous as that storied photograph. It was a plan for the future with America at center, designed by the legendary policy advisor George Kennan, from which came the domination of western and world culture by American initiatives, American culture and the American dollar, from which came the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the wall of containment of the Soviet Union.

National Review Calls for Impeachment Over Iran Deal

Moonbattery ^ | July 27, 2015 | Dave Blount

Posted on 7/27/2015, 12:44:18 PM by QT3.14

Even the normally restrained if not downright tepid National Review has reached the obvious conclusion — Obama must be impeached for facilitating the acquisition of nuclear weapons by America’s worst enemy. Andrew McCarthy notes that in the time of the Founding Fathers, it was regarded as an impeachable offense for a president to withhold information from Congress regarding a treaty, or to use unscrupulous tactics to acquire Senate approval. Compare that to what Obama has done:

The Battle of Tarawa has become a Marine Corps legend. It was the first time Marines had to face serious resistance to their amphibious landings, with the tiny island so heavily fortified that a Japanese admiral, Keiji Shibazaki, said it would take a million men a hundred years to take it.

The Marines succeeded, and in just three short days, but it was a hard-fought battle. Nearly 1,000 Marines were killed fighting the Japanese, who were prepared to fight to the last man — and they very nearly did, with only one officer and a handful of enlisted men surrendering. For the United States, it was a heavy loss. Some of the Marines who fell at Tarawa never got to come home… until now.

Kill Trump’s third-party threat: Republican Party chief wants all GOP candidates to pledge not to run as independents – but only one might

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus says every GOP White House hopeful ‘should pledge not to run as a third-party candidate’ He was responding to threats from front-runner Donald Trump to undercut the party if Priebus and others don’t show him more respect ‘I think everyone understands that if Hillary Clinton’s going to get beat, she’s going to get beat by a Republican,’ Priebus said Trump walked back the notion of a break with the party after some conciliatory gestures from the RNC The chairman of the Republican National Committee said Monday that every GOP candidate for president ‘should pledge not to run as a third-party candidate,’ a not-so-subtle reference to Donald Trump’s threat ot breaking off and doing things his own way – as an independent.

Ted Cruz Destroys Senate Leadership For Pushing Obama Agenda

Shark Tank ^ | July 27, 2015 | Nicole Sanders

Posted on 7/27/2015, 11:48:08 AM by SoConPubbie

On Sunday after speaking on the Senate floor U.S. Senator and presidential hopeful, Ted Cruz (TX-R) said:

We’ve just seen something extraordinary on the Senate floor. The American people elected a Republican majority believing that a Republican majority would be somehow different from a Democratic majority in the United States Senate. Unfortunately, the way the current Senate operates, there is on party, the Washington party.

Cruz also went on to say Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid act as a team.

Senate leadership consists of McConnell-Reid leadership team. They operate as a team. They support the same priorities. If you look at what has occurred int the United States Senate since the Republicans took a majority, we immediately returned after winning a historic majority to pass a trillion dollar ‘cromnibus’ bill filled with corporate welfare and pork. Then, the so-called Republican majority voted to fund Obamacare. Then, the s0-called Republican majority voted to fund President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty. Then, the so-called Republican majority voted to confirm Loretta Lynch as attorney general.

Cruz said everything that was a priority for Reid is also a priority for current Republican leader, McConnell.

He also pointed out the McConnell-Reid team has no interest in defunding Planned Parenthood or putting pressure on Iran.

Cruz ended by saying:

To the millions of Americans who rallied in November believing if only we got a Republican majority in the Senate something would be different, this was a clarifying and a sad moment.

Below is a video of Senator Ted Cruz’s Remarks on the Senate floor:

Amazon’s Next Innovation Could Be ‘Drive-thru’ Grocery Stores

6 minutes ago

Amazon wants to change how shoppers tackle a top weekend errand: going to the grocery store.

The e-commerce company is reportedly developing a drive-up store concept in California, according to the Silicon Valley Business Journal. It would allow shoppers to order grocery items online and then schedule a pickup at a dedicated facility. The project would not only showcase a new distribution strategy for Amazon, it would also put the retailer in another major consumer spending category: grocery.

There’s no way to know for sure that this latest rumor will come to fruition. Recall that in October last year it was reported Amazon planned to open a store in New York City in time for the busy holiday shopping season. That rumored store never opened.

In the grocery aisle, there’s a lot of room for e-commerce disruption, although the tech industry has so far had little success in getting shoppers online for their grocery orders. While more than half of global consumers polled by Nielsen said they were willing to buy groceries online, online grocery sales in the U.S. only capture about 1% of total spending.

An Amazon representative wasn’t immediately available to comment on the drive-up grocery store concept speculation.

“The ‘Silk Road’ plan is expected to change the world political and economic landscape through development of countries along the routes, most of which are eager for fresh growth,” Xinhua wrote. Beijing hopes that annual trade volume between China and “Belt and Road” countries will “surpass 2.5 trillion U.S. dollars in a decade or so,” – Chinese President Xi Jinping

Today Greece is a tiny microcosm of much of Southern and Eastern Europe. All have too much government debt owed to distant mega banks, massive underemployment, weak energy starved economies and rule by distant, unelected, EU bureaucrats.

Huckabee: Obama ‘Marching The Israelis To The Door Of The Oven’

Matt Higginsa minute ago#president obama

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is sticking with his controversial criticism of the Iran nuclear deal, claiming that President Barack Obama is “marching the Israelis to the door of the oven,” a reference to the Holocaust.

The former Arkansas governor made the tweet Sunday, a day after first making the comparison when denouncing Obama for his role in the agreement reached by the United States and other world powers.

President Barack Obama responded to Huckabee’s comments during a press conference in Ethiopia on Monday, saying that it’s “part of just a general pattern that we’ve seen that would be considered ridiculous if it weren’t so sad.”

“Maybe this is just to push Mr. Trump out of the headlines but it’s not the kind of leadership that is needed for America right now,” Obama said. “”The Republican party is shocked and yet that arises out of a culture where those kind of outrageous attacks have become far too commonplace and yet circulated nonstop through the Internet and talk radio and news outlets.”

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Huckabee’s statement was “grossly irresponsible” and called on him to apologize.

But a Huckabee spokeswoman said Sunday his comments reflect a longstanding position that “the Iran deal is a bad deal, bad for America and bad for Israel.” Huckabee’s tweet called on Congress to reject the nuclear deal.

— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) July 26, 2015

“This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history,” Huckabee said in an interview with Breitbart News broadcast on Sirius/XM radio Saturday. “He’s so naive he would trust the Iranians and he would take the Israelis and basically march them to the door of the oven.”

Huckabee said that “this Iran deal should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans.”

“We forget Iranians have never kept a deal in 36 years under the ayatollah. There’s no reason to think they will suddenly start doing it.”

Huckabee said of the deal: “I read the entire thing. We gave away the whole farm. It’s got to be stopped.”

Huckabee’s comments come as the GOP presidential candidates struggle to break through with 16 presidential candidates already in the GOP field, and one of those, New York businessman Donald Trump, getting more attention than most.
